Courtesy of Amazon.com

On Wednesday, January 9, 2019, Amazon Founder, CEO and President Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie Bezos announced they’re divorcing. The reason why the divorce is because Jeff Bezos have been having an affair with actress and former news anchor Laura Sanchez Lopez.

As you may know he is a billionaire worth 136.9 billion USD. Also Jeff owns The Washington Post.

Will MacKenzie get over 68 billion? They have 4 children.

What will happen to the internet company Amazon and to their current Amazon associates employees and business partners especially the logistics business partners and Amazon Flex partner drivers? Will they sale Amazon to another billionaire? Will Alexa, and IMDb sold too? And their affiliates? What’s the future of the company ventures? As well operations!

Amazon Flex needs hard dedicated workers at the warehouse stations because the operation managers have given the job in the logistics area to the delivery business partners who are getting lots of complaints from customers and its working force about delivery and working conditions. Amazon Flex is giving the blocks or packages to the individual flex drivers which is the left over from the business delivery partners that they don’t want to do or did not finished. So Amazon is scheduling late blocks during dark nights, raining days or hot weather conditions, weekends and holidays with no surge or extra compensation for the individual flex drivers.

Also Amazon Flex were supposed to do “Blocks” not driving miles around different cities. Not sure what makes the delivery business partners so special because they getting lots of perks or benefits that the individual partners don’t get! They both do the same of work!

Amazon Flex has refused and is refusing to pay extra if an individual delivery partner goes over their block which is not a block is driving miles around town. Individual Amazon flex don’t get any perks or benefits even though their cars are wearing down and the high cost of gasoline.

So future Amazon competitor If you want to be successful take care of your working force. Don’t discriminate or treat others better because you may not survive in a competitive working world.

Tips and Tricks to Make you a Better Date

Honesty is the best policy. Photo credit to: Celestine Chua

Dating can be quite a challenge for some people, especially if they’ve been out of the dating scene for a while.

Of course, there can be many reasons why you might be out of dating practice. Perhaps you’ve been single for a long time and now decided to change that, or maybe you were in a long-term relationship that’s only recently come to an end.  

Either way, the prospect of going through those early dating experiences again can be quite scary. It’s almost like having to go through those awkward teenage years all over again.

One thing that definitely won’t help you in today’s dating world is a lack of confidence. So, why not take a look at the ideas below on how to boost your dating confidence before you dive back into it all?

There are some basic principles when it comes to dating that will help anyone who’s looking for love.

1. Be honest

We all learn as kids that we should always tell the truth, so why treat dating any differently? You may want to pretend you’re a bit younger than you are, or that your job’s a bit more high-powered than it actually is, but if the person you meet on a date becomes a part of your life, will you want to keep up the fibs?

Being honest about who you are and what you believe in will allow you to be more confident – and that in turn will make you more appealing to any potential partner.

2. Don’t let your expectations get out of control

It might be nice to meet the person of your dreams on that first date, but realistically, it’s a slim chance. You might have better odds with the lottery! So instead of putting too much hope on a date, treat it as a social event – a way to meet someone new and have some fun. If it turns out to be the beginning of a new relationship, that’s great. If not, you haven’t lost anything, and you’ll have gotten some dating practice under your belt, ready for the next one.

3. Learn to read the signs

Sometimes, people are so keen for a date to work out well that it’s almost as if they have blinkers on and miss the signals the other person is giving them. Learn to read the signs of what your date thinks of you. The way someone looks at you while you’re talking, the way they move their hands or choose to sit, can all be indications of how they feel about you.

4. Remember, it’s not all about you

People going on a date often focus on what the other person will think of them, and consequently can get quite anxious about what kind of impression they’ll make. To help avoid this, think about what you want to know about your date. What do they do for a living, what do they like doing in their spare time, where would their dream vacation take them? However, you don’t spend the whole night just quizzing each other – so perhaps have a couple of current affairs topics in mind to discuss – it’ll take the pressure off you both.

The most useful advice for anyone going out on a date is to relax and just be yourself. That way, whoever you’re meeting will get to spend a nice evening with you, and get to know you. Wherever the date takes you, it’ll be some dating practice and that experience will be useful for any future dates.
