Benefits of the repair for society, for community, for people, for yourself

Benefits of the repair for society, for community, for people, for yourself First off, let’s start talking about the benefits of repair for Society. There are three main topics I will talk about, for the benefits of repair for society. The first topic, is talking about the benefits relating of how schools are not teaching mobile/laptop/PC repair to students, either in high school and college (preferred). The reason being this is a good benefit to society, is the fact of more people especially students, wanting to pursue their career in repairing devices for people. It’s a good career to get into because there will never be a place or region that isn’t looking for students or graduates to help out working at a repair shop. Lastly, it can also bring a lot of good job opportunities to student and graduates. If you really want to after you graduate from college, learning these repair skills, you can maybe even build a new repair business. The second topic, is talking about the benefits of having a repair shop that is common in places (around the world). Say, you are traveling, and for some reason out of nowhere you ended up breaking your phone. You realized there is a known repair shop that is popular around the world. This is very helpful, because you as the customers don’t want to buy a brand new phone, which would end up costing more than repairing. This is a reason why finding a popular and well-known shop is the best way to go. Plus you already trust the repair shop because they are known around...

Why repair of electronic devices is better then recycling?

Have you ever been to Best Buy, or any place that takes old electronics; to not shop, but to recycle your old electronic devices? If, you answered yes, then you are part of millions of people who do this every year. Your probably thinking to yourself, “oh recycling is great for the environment!” But in fact its not. Electronic manufacturers want you to believe that recycling is a good idea. Recycling is better than throwing stuff away, but it’s not a solution. Here are some facts that prove recycling isn’t a great choice! Did you know that 20% to 35% of material content of a phone is lost when the phone is shredded and melted down for recycling. That critical rare earths are presented in every single electronic device you own. And that 99% of them cannot be recovered for recycling. Next, your smartphones consumes enough energy during manufacturing to power 1,200 60 watt light bulbs for an hour -energy lost when the phone is shredded. Lastly, zero is the number of smartphones that have been made from 100% recycled materials. We cannot make a new phone form an old one. Now, let’s talk about the reasoning behind on how long it really take to make these electronic devices. It takes (literally) tons of raw materials, hundreds of man hours, and enormous amounts of energy to manufacture the electronics that most of us use for less than two years. Part of the reason why we only use these devices for a total of two year, is because there’s always another updated phone coming out. People are always looking for...
Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence

  Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a very important concept to understand. It’s important to understand what it is, how it can be beneficial to the IT Support Specialist job, and lastly how it can be used in every situation at your IT job. But what is Emotional Intelligence? It refers to the ability to perceive, control, and evaluate emotions. But some researchers suggest that  EI can be learned and strengthened, while others claim it is an inborn characteristic. My perception on if it’s either inborn or can be learned and strengthened is a difficult choice. I think it can be both. I think it depends on who you are personality-wise. Because some people can’t read people’s emotions or reason or understand. But other people like social workers know how to understand and use EI very well because they are born with the ability. There are four factors of Emotional Intelligence. These factors are level one to four. The higher you go the stronger the emotional intelligence goes. The first factor is called perceiving emotions. This means, the first step in understanding emotions is to accurately perceive them. In many cases, this might involve understanding nonverbal signals such as body language and facial expressions. The second factor is reasoning with emotions. This step involves using emotions to promote thinking and cognitive activity. Emotions help prioritize what we pay attention and react to; we respond emotionally to things that garner our attention. Third, understanding emotions. The emotions that we perceive can carry a wide variety of meanings. If someone is expressing angry emotions, the observer must interpret the cause of their anger...
