10 things not to say to your boss in 2013

Having a boss can be tough, especially when you know that your job lays in his hands. There are many times when people make mistakes by saying certain things to their bosses, which manage to change their career and relationship with him.

Whenever we are at our jobs, we should try to remain calm and try our best to keep ourselves from saying some of the next phrases which are well known for getting many people into trouble.

‘This is impossible’

Having a negative attitude from the start can make your relationship a lot worse, and also show a lack of interest in the job and subjects that your boss considers important.

‘I just want the money’

Even though it may be true, nobody wants to hear it, especially if you work for them.

‘Do I really need to do this?’

If your boss asks you to and it makes sense, the answer is probably yes.

‘I have more important things to do’

Showing this amount of lack of interest in your work can make anyone’s boss think twice before working with you once again.

‘This is not what I was hired for’

We all need to come to an understanding that at least once, we will need to do something different in our jobs comparing to what we are used to.

‘I do not like this job’

Saying so can make your boss angry, but also make him consider replacing you.

‘Do I really have to get this done’?

It may seem like common sense, but when your boss asks you to do a certain project, it should become a must for any of us.

‘I told you not to trust me’

This can truly change the opinion your boss has on you, along with the ones of other employees. Together with this, you will also lose most, if not all of the trust your colleagues have in you.

‘I do not get paid well enough to do something like this’

The truth is that you have signed a contract which states your salary. Telling your boss that it is not good enough in the middle of a debate will not make him change his mind and grant you a higher income.

‘Sighing’

We all sigh from time to time when something does not seem convenient. If you need to do something or you are frustrated about a certain matter, try your best to keep it to yourself.

In conclusion, there are many words which should not be addressed to a boss if your hope is high when it comes down to succeeding in the company. Bosses may seem mean from time to time, but they are also people and need to be understood.


Cable vs ADSL internet today

Cable and ADSL internet providers have been feuding in an attempt to assert themselves as the industry standard. In an ever expanding market, with so many options for types of internet, let alone providers of internet, it can be difficult to always be ahead of the game in terms of understanding. It is important to always understand fully the concepts which you are comparing before attempting to understand a comparison, to better inform yourself and decide which is the option which suits your needs most thoroughly. Specifically, cable and ADSL can be extraordinarily difficult to differentiate, particularly when viewed solely in terms of the specifications. However, the two technologies are quite different and depending on the needs of the user, one may be a far better fit.

ADSL stands for Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, and is a specific type of DSL connection. ADSL functions by permitting larger amounts of information to pass through the copper telephone lines by using particular filters. This also enables ADSL to boast higher speeds and better connectivity than traditional modem lines. ADSL differs from SDSL (Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line) by providing higher download speeds than upload speeds (hence, asymmetric.) In layman’s terms, this allows users to access information more quickly online and costs the provider less in terms of necessary servers. Essentially, ADSL runs using the same technology, and framework, as standard telephones do. The signals are exchanged at a different frequency, as to allow phone calls to be connected even while connected to the internet. Though the speeds boasted are not exceedingly incomprehensible, most users will never flinch at the load times. ADSL is an easy option to implement, as it ports old technology, namely telephone wiring, into a new space.

Cable internet, on the other hand, uses not the existing framework of telephone wiring but of television cable wiring. This may seem to be a trivial difference to some, compared with the DSL networks, however the technological shift provides some major differences. Essentially, the user connects a modem which is linked to another modem from the provider – these filters permit the use of the pre-existing cable framework to connect online. In general, cable internet connections have the capacity to provide far greater speeds, however, with cable internet companies often throttle usage with shared bandwidth. Essentially, the speed of the internet is divided up between a number of residences of a community: the result being that the cable connection is indifferentiable in speed with the ADSL connection.

In the most basic of analyses, ADSL and Cable Internet complete the same job – they will get you online. Typically providers of each tend to bundle their services – DSL internet with phone, and Cable Internet with television. Every company offers different plans, price points and speeds for each individual in their network. The differences in technology do not inherently ensure one to be a better choice in all circumstances, but based on your home needs one will typically rule out. If you use cable service, but not phone service, it could be quite worthwhile to go with the cable internet. If you wish to save some money, and have no need for the added speed, ADSL may be a better option. It is important to understand that each technology exists, and operates in a slightly different manner, in order to make an informed decision when making the choice.
