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.

How Will Tech Affect Communities Worldwide

by Kitty Jellinek
In the USA, Google-owned Boston Dynamics released a video this week of their latest Atlas robot. Atlas is 175 centimetres tall and weighs 81 kilograms. In the video, he takes a walk in the woods over uneven and snowy ground. He picks up boxes. He gets to his feet after being knocked over. He follows a box being dragged in front of him. These simple things alone represent a considerable advancement in robotics technology. How long before your local shelf stacker at the supermarket looks something like a friendly Terminator? The wave of technological innovation keeps getting bigger and bigger. […]

We The People – Local Communities Dismantling Corporate Rule

by Kitty Jellinek
Community Rights educator Paul Cienfuegos explains how “We The People” are exercising the authority to govern ourselves and dismantle corporate rule. When small farmers in rural Pennsylvania wanted to say “no” to a corporate factory farm coming into their community, they learned they couldn’t, because it would violate the corporation’s “rights” and state pre-emption laws. So they did something technically illegal – their town passed an innovative ordinance banning corporate factory farming. It worked! The corporation left town. Pittsburgh upshifted the approach: Rather than define what we don’t want, define what we DO want. Their “Right to Water” stopped natural […]

Community Activities | getting children involved

by Kitty Jellinek
Getiing children involved in local community activities can boost your child’s self esteem, confidence and help them to build new skills. It is also a great way to broaden your child’s knowledge. You can get your child involved by firstly selecting activities that your child is already familiar with and loves. For instance, lets say your child has a love of horses – however your circumstances prohibit the purchase of a horse for your child. Organize a family outing to a place where they are giving pony rides for disabled children. Ask the organizer whether your child could help with […]

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 […]
