    How to find work during COVID-19 outbreak?

    Our economy has severely been impacted by the Corona Virus outbreak. Many people have received a letter that there jobs are no longer standing which is heartbreaking. Our government has spoken we will not be extended the extra $600 a week for the unemployed from July to January as what was proposed and no pending work of universal basic income. I understand jobs in the market may fall short but there is temp and on-demand work if anyone is interested which you can choose your own hours. The though of the fact that many workers will have no alternatives is really quite sad so I made it my mission to hunt down ways of finding employment in these troubling times. Please Help me support my page so I can continue to learn more way to keep helping those in need. Depending on the app(s) you choose W-2 or 1099 status may vary some employers may even offer both. Not to worry its not just gonna be Uber and Lyft. Which don't get me wrong are great apps but not everyone likes driving people around place to place or trust strangers to sit in their cars which is completely understandable.

    Making Magic Beautiful Again.

    Two months ago, I was hired on as an artist for Walt Disney World’s Figure Finish department. It was like stepping into a dream. I had to pinch myself several times in the first few days to realize that this opportunity I had for artistic growth was truly a reality. I took a selfie in the early hours of the morning to send to my brand new boyfriend, happy as could be after my first night of work. I spent one whole week and day with my head in the clouds before we were furloughed on account of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    For The Greater Good

    It is now June, and all around the world we are seeing different strategies that governments, businesses and humans in general have implemented as a way to combat the coronavirus, otherwise known as COVID-19. We are trying to slow the spread to ease the strain on our healthcare systems while keeping our economies somewhat functional, and it is no easy task. Here in the United States, we have some states that have decided to lift stay-at-home orders despite experts’ disapproval and few states have had no form of quarantine in place whatsoever.

    Will the entertainment industry survive COVID-19

    Will the entertainment industry survive COVID-19

    As anyone who knows my bio, then you know I work in the entertainment industry as a technician. With the wave of this pandemic and now current strife in our country, my colleagues and I wonder what the future holds for our industry. We’re living on unemployment with held breath for knowledge on any sign that we might be going back to work soon. I think people have a tendency to forget about us, since we work in the back and no one wonders what happens to writers, designers, etc. We exist and we’re very real and we are struggling like so many are struggling. We remain quiet because there are bigger problems at hand, too many people dying, people working on the front line working under stress and now with new problems arising I think we feel lost. It’s overwhelming for anyone and everyone during this time, we’re consumed by the media and the concerns of what will happen tomorrow let alone today. I felt this need to let my fellow colleagues know, I still question the future of our industry in private thoughts and know many do too.

    Now more than ever you have a choice. The choice to learn. During this global pandemic we are all stuck at home with a lot more free time and nothing to do! Now, you could choose to waste that free time or you could choose to invest that time to do something productive. And I think one of the most productive things that you could do is actually learn a skill set, because when this is over, the world will start spending and creating again.

    Becoming a Makeup Artist, Creative Inspiration, and A Look Inside My Apartment

    I recently did a fun behind-the-scenes video about my life. I've been collecting small paintings, prints, and one very special trophy. Join me in my cozy space, meet my chihuahuas, and check out the art and objects that inspire me. My apartment was chosen specifically because I wanted a smaller apartment than my last one so I could go to work, come home to a neat organized space, and basically just get ready for the next phase of my life. I would love to get back to gardening, hobbies, and cooking more, but in the meantime, I’m in full work mode!

    I finally reached my Vocal Media payout!

    I don't consider myself a great writer but I am a patient person. Over the last two years I have tried to be as consistent as I could. I've experienced some difficulties but pushed through and it was all worth it. The money isn't a huge deal but it is nice to have a small reward for my efforts. I don't think Vocal Media is for everyone but I really appreciate the great staff that they have and how they've encouraged me to continue to write.

    Time For Some ‘Creative Destruction’

    Time For Some ‘Creative Destruction’

    The very nature of the global economic structures we have taken for granted over the last decade are in jeopardy, from the integrity of the European Union to the future of supply lines from China, a country that stands accused of lying to the world about the extent of the virus. Coronavirus has obliterated over 22 million jobs, which amounts to nearly all the jobs that were created since the end of the financial crisis 10 years ago. This economic crisis will have a domino effect and continue to impact one facet of society after another. Ultimately it will create a wall of worry for financial markets to climb. As time passes and we begin to understand the scope of this crisis, facts will eventually force action. There are plenty of opinions about the whos, whys, whens, and hows, but we all know one thing for certain: it will take a long time for the effects of a global economic shutdown to settle enough to create some semblance of a "new normal."

    Sweatshops

    Sweatshops

    Every day first world citizens benefit from the labor of those in other countries. Most of the labor is performed in poorly run facilities that have a tendency to take advantage of the employees. Sweatshops have been an industrial stronghold since America took the world of business by surprise in the eighteen-hundreds. The use of sweatshops is not hidden but widely ignored by the masses. I wanted to research this topic to better understand sweatshops and how they function, after seeing a political commentary on it. The purpose of this essay is to delve into how sweatshops affect companies outsourcing labor and the people providing labor. The essay will cover why America outsources labor, the effects of outsourcing labor, and alternatives for employers and employees.

    Vaseline, Kotex, Kleenex, and Tampax are brand names, not products

    Most everyone has said themselves or heard someone else say they were going to the store to purchase a box of Kotex, Kleenex, Tampax or a jar of Vasoline. In truth these are name brands of companies that sell sanitary napkins, facial tissues, tampons, and petroleum jelly. Years ago there were not as many companies manufacturing these items as there are today and also most people did not like to use “off brands”. Even when consumers do choose to purchase generic versions of these products, years of habit cause them to still refer to them by the names they have utilized all their lives. Following is a breakdown of each of these products.

Unbound are innovative and different, and well-regarded in the UK. They crowdfund their books, and kick in as a more-or-less traditional publisher once the target £££ have been raised. My book’s did well — it raised a third of its funds in the first couple of weeks — but the whole process is an emotional rollercoaster.

    While you’ve probably seen some extravagant prototypes made with top-notch materials, it’s not always needed. A prototype isn’t necessarily about making a working pre-release product, but rather a tool used to explain its concept. Especially for new inventors with few resources, you have to be quite pragmatic when constructing prototypes.

Some of us make certain to follow a stringent routine of no less than 2,000 words a day. Whatever works for you works for you, but after a novel has been written, it's imperative to edit that novel.
