Small Businesses Benefit Local Communities

by Kitty Jellinek
Have you ever considered the importance of small business to local communities? While small businesses generate new jobs and employ more than half of the work force, they’re also beneficial to the local community. Here are some examples how small businesses make a profound local impact: Community Uniqueness Take a stroll down Main Street and you’ll likely notice that your community has its own unique character and charm. From the mom-and-pop shop, the local CPA and dog grooming business, to an antiques emporium, coffee shop, yoga studio and beyond, small businesses contribute to a community’s uniqueness. Many municipalities and tourism […]
Nuclear Weapons

A world war has begun.

Break the silence. by John Pilger I have been filming in the Marshall Islands, which lie north of Australia, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Whenever I tell people where I have been, they ask, “Where is that?” If I offer a clue by referring to “Bikini”, they say, “You mean the swimsuit.” Few seem aware that the bikini swimsuit was named to celebrate the nuclear explosions that destroyed Bikini island. Sixty-six nuclear devices were exploded by the United States in the Marshall Islands between 1946 and 1958 — the equivalent of 1.6 Hiroshima bombs every day for twelve […]

Special Announcement for Local Community Businesses

by Kitty Jellinek
As a web developer, over the years I have identified a stumbling block for small local community businesses, concerning their online promotional efforts – or should I say the lack of them. When discussing web development with a prospective client I have always emphasised the need for ongoing maintenance and promotion of their site. Usually these discussions were with the business owner or manager, who were very capable people at running their business – but with no experience in internet marketing. Some of them assigned a staff member to follow my recommendations on how to promote their own website. Others […]

Mikode Local Community Network Sites Help Local Businesses

by Kitty Jellinek
What a lot of people fail to realize today is that the well being of local businesses affects everyone economically.   The main reason why people shop in chain stores within their own localities, rather than at the local business outlets is twofold. 1] People mistakenly think that the chain store in their locality is a local business. 2] Local businesses can’t compete with the monopolistic advertising of the super stores. Above is today’s Woolworth’s online catalogue – For area 4221. When I see this type of advertisement I ask: ½ prices, compared to what norm? Is this ½ the […]

It is hard to believe that people still fall for these scams – even ones that have been around and re-hashed for over a decade.

Welcoming In 2014

by Kitty Jellinek
What does the future look like – Welcoming in 2014 People often ask me how we can be so positive about the future when the headlines are full of depressing news. You only have to look at the front page of the Bloomberg News website on any given day to get a good dose of depression. More often than not the top story involves the latest mess involving central banks or governments. Most of the time it’s a story about how they’re trying to head off the next disaster. What a sad state of affairs. And yet if you strip […]

Google Robots Won’t Work Without This Crucial Technology

by Kitty Jellinek
Thursday, 19th December 2013 – London, England By Sam Volkering, Technology Analyst, Revolutionary Tech Investor •    Google robots won’t work without this crucial technology When you think of Google these days what comes to mind? For me I no longer think of them as my search engine. Nor do I think about them as the world’s best advertising company. For me, Google these days is more about the future. By that I mean I get the feeling Google are starting to build not just the world’s biggest company, but also possibly the world’s biggest empire (cue Star Wars music). In […]
