Just wished there wasn’t a 3 second delay to resume and a favorite or star or something to know which video chip you like and need to keep or that you’ve viewed already. There’s so many to go through and if it’s one right in the middle of the many that you want to save so you can merge with later, it’s hard to decipher which one.

Hi Thanks for downloading the app and your valuable feedback, We have released a new stable version(4.0). 3 seconds delay on Resuming video is removed in this version.

The app has a setting where you can choose to save the final video and all paused videos separately which can be used for resuming recording in future, By default that setting is off, you can turn it on in settings -> “Keep Copy”. Also you can Trim any video to select a portion of video which will be saved to your videos and then you can resume recording on that video.

I have recorded very long videos many time and they were all at least 40 minutes and took a lot of my time when I could’ve been doing something else one time it had just stopped saving without an alert message before or after. another time I recorded a video that was an hour long and while saving it got up to 56% and then stopped saving and gave me a message that I didn’t have enough storage. and while that is my fault the video was nowhere to be found, it didn’t even stop saving and just let go back on the same recording, no, the video just deleted and it was a very important video. so overall it is a decent app but not one I would recommend. and if you were to try it out I suggest taking many precautions.

Thank you for downloading the application and your valuable feedback, We have fixed the issue in version 3.0, Please give it a try.

There are many apps to record video. Strangely one of the most basic record functions is missing in even native smartphone video apps.

I need to record>pause>record many times with little or no delay or added steps, then save the segments as a single video.

The basic no cost Video Cam Pro provides this function. The record button is just the word record in small type at the bottom on the screen. I like it’s as far down the screen as possible but a small traditional pause/record button would be nice.

Requires iOS 13.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

English

With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.

Several years ago I watched the 2005 movie Lord of War. In case you’re not familiar with the film, from the IMDb website:

An arms dealer confronts the morality of his work as he is being chased by an Interpol Agent.

Nicolas Cage plays the arms dealer while Ethan Hawke is cast in the role of the Interpol “agent.”

(Editor’s note: Spoiler Alert. Do not read on if you ever intend to watch Lord of War)

At the end of the movie, Hawke gets his man. At least temporarily. While held in an interrogation room, Cage takes the opportunity to explain to his gloating adversary why he’ll soon be released from custody.

For me, this particular scene serves as a poignant reminder that in a world full of Facebook Ph.D.’s, unless one truly roams the halls of power and is privy to the activity going on behind the curtain, the ideas and statements of many on how the world really works are merely speculation

Earlier tonight I read a disturbing piece on the Daily Reckoning (Australia) website that was posted by James (Jim) Rickards, an American lawyer, economist, investment banker, and best-selling author. On Tuesday Rickards wrote:

The most important financial or geopolitical issue in the world today is a coming war between the U.S. and North Korea, probably in the next twelve weeks.

How can I be so sure about the timing? The Director of the Central Intelligence Agency told me.

In a private conclave in Washington DC on October 20, 2017, CIA Director Mike Pompeo told a small think tank group (including me) that it would be imprudent to assume it would take North Korea more than ‘five months’ to have a reliable arsenal of nuclear-armed ICBM missiles. These could strike U.S. cities and kill millions of Americans.

Five months from October 20, 2017 is March 20, 2018. That’s an outside date but the war will likely begin before then…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

While (for me) the jury is still out on Rickards, he offered up some interesting arguments in the article.

Head on over to the Daily Reckoning site here to read the entire piece if you’re interested in what he had to say.

Well-known investor, author, and financial commentator Jim Rogers was recently interviewed by Kitco News anchor Daniela Cambone. The former investing partner of George Soros in the legendary Quantum Fund talked about a number of topics, including U.S. and foreign stocks, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, gold, asset bubbles, and how he’s preparing himself for 2018.

On U.S. equities, Rogers said:

I’m not a buyer here, Daniela. Stocks have been going straight up. I don’t like to buy straight up. I would buy Japan, for instance, and China- both of which are down a lot. And if America’s going to continue going up or turn into a bubble, they’re going to go up more.

On U.S. stock prices:

I would expect that they will go up for a while, and then go down by this time next year.

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

On gold:

I’m not selling any of my gold. I’m not buying gold. I’m sitting and watching. I’m still waiting for gold to go down so I can buy more.

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

For 2018:

I’m still buying shares in Asia. China’s down 40 percent from its all-time high. Japan’s down 50 percent from its all-time high. The Japanese government is doing unbelievably everything it can to get stocks up. It’s not good for Japan what they’re doing, but it’s good for me- it’s good for people like me who own shares. Anyway, I prefer to buy Japan which is down 50 percent to America which is making all-time highs.

When I last blogged about “Crash Prophet” Jeremy Grantham right after Thanksgiving, the British-born investment strategist and founder/former chairman of Grantham, Mayo, Van Otterloo & Co. (currently overseeing $74 billion in client assets) had just mentioned in a Wall Street Journal interview that although U.S. stock prices were high, profit margins were also are unusually high, lending support to high valuations. In addition, low interest rates make equities more attractive than fixed-income investments. As a result, he didn’t forecast a crash is stock prices as much as a decades-long reversion to anywhere near the long-term average.

Now, regular readers of Survival And Prosperity know I like to read and pick apart Grantham’s quarterly letters on the GMO website. And his third quarter letter has just been released. Grantham, whose individual clients have included former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, penned the following about U.S. equities in “Career Risk and Stalin’s Pension Fund: Investing in a World of Overpriced Assets (With a Single Reasonably-Priced Asset)”:

The trend line will regress back toward the old normal but at a substantially slower rate than normal because some of the reasons for major differences in the last 20 years are structural and will be slow to change. Factors such as an increase in political influence and monopoly power of corporations; the style of central bank management, which pushes down on interest rates; the aging of the population; greater income inequality; slower innovation and lower productivity and GDP growth would be possible or even probable examples. Therefore, I argue that even in 20 years these factors will only be two-thirds of the way back to the old normal of pre-1998. This still leaves returns over the 20-year period significantly sub-par. Another sharp drop in prices, the third in this new 20-year era, will not change this outcome in my opinion, as prices will bounce back a third time

Near-term major declines suggest a much-increased value of cash reserves and a greater haven benefit from high-rated bonds.

My assumption of slow regression produces an expectation of a dismal 2.5% real for the S&P and 3.5% to 5% for other global equities over 20 years, but also a best guess of approximately the same over 7 years.

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Grantham’s thoughts on where one might invest?

My conclusion is straightforward: heavily overweight EM equities, own some EAFE, and avoid US equities.

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Referring to an exhibit, he pointed out:

1) developed ex-US is well below its 20-year average and 40% below the US; and 2) Emerging is 65% below its high in 2007.

There were also these nuggets from the letter:

Pension funds should brace themselves for a disastrous 1% to 3% return in the next 10 years.

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

And:

My view on Resources is that the cycle has turned, global economies are doing quite well by recent standards, and oil prices are likely to rise for three years or so.

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Yet another insightful letter from Grantham, which you can read here in its entirety on the GMO site.

Fundamentals of Communication

Most of the verbal communicating you do is from one individual to another. This is true whether you’re in a family, social, or a work setting.

One-on-one verbal communication affords the greatest opportunity for precision, because immediate feedback can tell you whether you were understood accurately.

But communicating effectively involves more than just accuracy.

The purpose of most communication is to influence the attitudes and behaviors of those whom we address. Since the human race is composed of billions of individuals, each with a different way of responding, no one approach is universally effective. So it’s important that you learn to express yourself accurately and in a way that will accomplish your purpose toward the individual you’re addressing.

The Basic Process of Communicating

To achieve precision and effectiveness in communicating, you should understand the basic process of communication. It has four requirements:

¨ A message must be conveyed.

¨ The message must be received.

¨ There must be a response.

¨ Each message must be understood.

Let’s look at these requirements one at a time.

A Message Must Be Conveyed

That sounds simple enough. You know what your thoughts are, and you know how to translate them into words. But that’s where we lose the simplicity.

Each of us has our own mental dialect. It is the common language of the culture in which we grow up, modified by our own unique life’s experiences. Our life’s experiences add color and shades of meaning to different words.

When you speak, your mental dialect must be translated into the mental dialect of the hearer. So the words you speak acquire a different color when they pass through the ears of the person who hears you.

It Depends Upon Where You Are

You can probably think of numerous opportunities for misunderstandings on your job and in your culture. If you tell your travel agent you want a flight to Portland, be sure to specify Maine or Oregon. Otherwise, you may end up on the wrong coast. A colleague of mine once flew to Ohio to keep a speaking engagement in Columbus. Too late, he realized that the group he was to address was in Columbus, Georgia. If someone in my hometown of High Point, North Carolina asks me, “How did Carolina do in the big game last night?” I know the reference is to the Tar Heels of the University of North Carolina. If somebody in Columbia puts the question in those precise words, I know that “Carolina” means the Gamecocks of the University of South Carolina. In most cities, if you ask a newsstand operator for the Sunday Times, you’ll be handed a New York Times. But in St. Petersburg, Florida, or Seattle, Washington, you’re likely to get the local newspaper.

A Message Must Be Received

The second basic requirement of the one-on-one communication process is that the message be received and understood. Effective communicators know that they have not conveyed their meaning until they have made sure that the other person has received it exactly as they sent it. They test, with questions and observations, to make sure that the real meaning they wanted to convey has passed through the filters and has been received and understood.

There Must Be A Response

The goal of all communication is to obtain the desired response. You want to say something correctly, and have your hearer understand what you mean by it. But you also want the hearer to do something in response.

Each Message Must Be Understood

Once a message has been delivered, received and responded to, it’s time to take stock of what each person has communicated. The cycle of communication is complete only when you come away with a clearer understanding of the person with whom you sought to communicate. You may not always agree with the other person, and the other person may not always agree with you — but it is important that you understand each other.

Learning From The Ritz-Carlton Customer Service Philosophy | how to service customers?

We can learn much from the Ritz-Carlton Gold Standard and their exceptional customer service philosophy and orientation. “Putting on the Ritz” has always meant top-quality, the best of the best. Where did they acquire this reputation? From their customers – and it is well deserved.

The Ritz-Carlton focuses on taking care of their customers and employees and this creates an amazing standard of customer service. In a recent independent survey, 99 percent of guests said they were satisfied with their Ritz-Carlton hotel experience and over 80 percent stated they extremely satisfied. The key to impressive customer service is to create loyal customers. Loyal customers return again and again to spend there money and are less price sensitive. Satisfied customers might return, but are equally likely to go anywhere else and seek out the lowest price. Therefore, satisfaction is virtually meaningless and only customer loyalty truly counts.

The Ritz-Carlton approach to employee and customer relations can teach us a lot about exceptional customer service. How could you apply these within your company?

o Ritz-Carlton lets customers know that they are valued and encourages them to make the client and customer service their top priority. Trainers and managers focus on making sure the staff is well versed in the Ritz-Carlton Gold Standards. For the Ritz-Carlton these Gold Standards are not a procedure, they are philosophy and a way of life.

o The Ritz Carlton provides managers and employees with 250 to 300 hours of training in their first year

o The Ritz-Carlton philosophy is that any employee who receives a complaint from a guest owns that complaint. First-line employees such as desk clerks, bellboys and housekeepers are empowered to spend up to $2000 to handle any customer complaints and managers can spend up to $5,000 without additional authorization.

o The Ritz-Carlton has a manual for quality improvement and problem-solving procedures. The manual contains approximately 1000 potential problems that a client could have during their stay and the appropriate procedure(s) for dealing with each of these challenges so that the client is exceptionally pleased with the outcome.

With businesses typically losing 20% of their customers each year, we should clearly be spending more time, money and energy on customer service and retention than we are on marketing to new customers. The typical business spends 90% or more of their funding and focus on marketing to new customers and 10% or less on retaining old customers. These numbers from a profit-perspective should look a lot more like 50-50 if you want to have the best reputation and the largest increase in customers and profits year-over-year.

Recommendations:

– Make sure your managers and leaders are teaching, practicing, promoting and living a customer service oriented philosophy/lifestyle.

– Clearly define your customer service standards and train your employees to follow through at the highest level

– Make exceptional customer service an important item on employee evaluations.

– Make sure your staff has the ability to resolve small customer complaints/challenges on their own – and train them to do this well.

– Identify specific problem areas that you are having in your company, brainstorm solutions and then provide additional training and support.

– Edward Deming once said “What doesn’t get measured, doesn’t get done.” How do you measure your results?

– Customer questionnaires and surveys are key. Make sure you are asking open-ended questions that focus on customer Loyalty – Not satisfaction.

The Ritz-Carlton senior management knows that when employees are well trained they do a great job. And when employees feel they are doing a great job – they feel great at their job. This results in lower staff turnover, creates a positive environment and is a win-win for employees, management, clients, and keeps profits climbing. The Ritz-Carlton is a wonderful example of what a well run customer service focused organization can do when they create a customer service mindset and win-win philosophy at every level of the organization.

Small Business Start Up – How To Work On Your Business

Working On your business involves strategic planning versus tactical implementation. That means reflecting on what’s happening outside your business and its effects on you, as opposed to running the day to day operation. The result is reaching your goals by evaluating your processes and developing your own skills. Working In your business involves such daily activities as prospecting, serving customers, administration, and the “feel-good” activity of making bank deposits.

These daily activities will consume all your time and energy and take control of your business if you let them, preventing you from seeing the big picture, anticipating change, and responding to opportunities.

Steps for Working On Your Business

Step One: Plan the Work Weekly

The Harvard Business School completed a study of their graduates to determine what factors contributed to post graduate success. The number one factor was goal setting. The graduates that set goals, either formally or informally, were more likely to be successful in their careers and personal lives. Success was defined as a combination of compensation, career satisfaction, personal and professional achievements, and personal life satisfaction.

Planning the Work begins with goal setting. Know where you want your business to be in a year, in 5 years, and what your exit strategy for the business will be in ten years. Sometimes it is easier to set these goals starting with your exit strategy. Then ask yourself what intermediate steps do I need to do now to be in a position to achieve the goal in the future. This process sets the course of your business from where it is now to its planned destination.

Planning the work requires some time away from the business to determine if you are ‘on-course,’ plan any course corrections, and come back with a work plan that serves your goals.

Step Two: Work the Plan

Each planned goal should have a work plan for success; e.g. If one of your goals for the year is to grow sales by 20% the work plan will outline the activities necessary to achieve the goal.

Step Three: Evaluate Progress on a monthly basis and Make Necessary Course Corrections

Develop reports that provide timely, accurate information related to the weekly work plans and previously set goals. Remember, activity precedes results. Tracking activity will help to interpret the results you are getting. Monitor customer feedback and integrate the information into employee training, product/service innovation, and course corrections. Monitor your direct and indirect competition. Allocate your resources to insure your company’s next stage of development.

Tips for Working On Your Business

Set aside a time (2-3 hours) each week to get away from interruptions; e.g. go to a favorite deli, park, take a walk (use a recorder), etc.

Create your agenda for your time as the week progresses. Add items as they come up.

Meet once a month with someone or a group to go over your ideas. Banker, CPA, lawyer, etc. are also candidates.

Take in some business training workshops for fresh perspectives on issues your tackling.

Your investment of time in this activity will pay you back in generous dividends; e.g. cost savings, increased and better customer prospects, more sane moments, and a shorter distance to success.
