Writing Online

YES!

This is the word I said when I got accepted to write an article in the website that I joined for recently. I was so excited then he asked me for my SKYPE ID and he added me right away. We talked just a little bit about the article, it was about a Chess engine game. I don’t have any idea of the article but I still accepted it, he told me to research. He gave me 5 articles to write immediately and the time frame is within 24 hours. Within 24 hours I have to submit the articles. But when I asked how much each articles, he said .50 for 500 words. I stopped. I know how tricky the article is and how hard it is and I think even I am not that expert to write, .50 is way too cheap. I can’t make it.

And so I didn’t accept the offer. Sigh!

Be Very Careful

These past few days blogging is not doing good, thus, I tried to look for a job online but I did not pass for the interview for tutor online. There was one who hired me but the schedule was conflicted to the schedule of Mj so I did not accept the offer. I said to myself maybe writing is for me, I bid for projects and I was glad someone noticed my application. He asked my Skype id right away, so I gave it to him. We chatted in Skype but I was confused with the job so I ask for the complete details of the job. And he said it’s a role playing, it is like sometimes I could be a student while he is the teacher, but when he said that sometimes my role would be a wife. He also stated that I have to be alone at home.  It sounded not good to me at all. So I declined the job I told him I would rather write, he then informed me I could get $100.00 per session, which made me doubting more about it, I know this is something bad. And so I said NO.

Yes, I needed money today but I won’t offer myself doing things like that online, something I and my kids can’t be proud of. From then on, I didn’t log to that website anymore, I thought they are checking every advertisers or employers who are looking for somebody to work for them. I guess I am wrong because there are employers who are not decent at all.

How Useful Is Your Headset?

When you are just writing online, you will not be bothered anymore to buy a headset. Besides I am just chatting with my husband through yahoo and if we need to use the webcam or voice chat, I don’t need to use a speaker. Yes, all the people inside the house can hear us talking.

But when you are applying for home based job and you need to talk, headset is a must. Recently, I was requested to have a headset as one of their requirement for interview. I even re-set the schedule for my interview for me to be able to buy a headset. It was okay then because I was not ready, I was still trying to understand their module that they sent me. It was my first time to be interviewed for a teacher online job and since I am not a teacher graduate, I just don’t know what to do.

Again, I don’t bother anymore for an expensive headset. The staff in one of the computer store in the mall recommended me a headset that even how noisy your background is, the other line won’t hear it. I was tempted as it is fitted for the job that I applied for however it is so expensive. I don’t have enough budgets for it; my budget was only from 100 pesos to 200 pesos. On the other hand, there is no headset, which the price range I can afford of so I don’t have a choice but to get the higher one. This headset was the only one available for me, it has a big earpiece and I guess it is just right.

Unfortunately, I was not able to pass the interview. I’d like to think that the headset was just a waste of money but I want to look for the brighter side. It was worth it, my eldest daughter find it so useful when she have to listen to the music that she want to in you tube or she also used the headset for learning the chords of the song that she like in you tube. Sometimes I also used it when I have to watch a movie online. Yes, I am addicted to Korean drama now.

Moreover, don’t you know that the headset has already been useful during World War 1? The designed though is not as handy as we have now but it has a unique style and when I am looking at it, it looks like a head of an ALIEN or something weird not sure though, I got this from Wikipedia

The Almost Human Robots Can Be Found In Tokyo, Japan

What will you do when you spotted a person then later you found out that they are not human after all? It is just like seeing a gay or a lesbian passed on your way and you thought that they are really what you see they are then later you found out they are a transgender. How many times did I laugh at myself because I was fooled by their looks?

Now, this is very creepy what about seeing a person that is actually a robot?  The robots are displayed on Tuesday at the Tokyo, Museum. Although these robots can move their pink lips during voice over, or sway their heads, or blinks their eyes, they can only stay seated though they can move their hands. There are also some minor problems with the robots, for an instance they can’t move their lips at all while talking. Oh well It is common though for robots with glitches, they are robots right?

An Osaka University Professor said that these robots are very effective with research on how to dissimilate robots emotion, awareness and thinking from human. Making them is to answers on how it means to be human. The robots are designed for girlish appearance; they can use male voice and then later a squeaky woman’s voice. It is a human sized robots and the skin is the silicon type. They will be put on display on Wednesday at Miraikan Museum or the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation. The museums will be open to the public to personally meet the life-sized robots.
