World News Mixed As 2009 Ended and 2010 Started – Why This Matters

Few can deny that 2009 was the year filled with rather doom and gloomy news. In fact, I believe the business world as well as Wall Street, along with most US citizens were happy to see 2009 to go. When all the news is good, investors and consumers should not be so joyous and euphoria, but rather consider the reality that what everyone thinks the stock market will keep going up forever, that’s about the time it starts to crash.

For instance, when Silicon Valley got completely out of control and everyone thought the dot-com was the new utopian age, the bubble burst. And about the time that everyone started buying real estate in a feeding frenzy at the top of the market with no money down, thinking they were going to make millions of dollars flipping houses, the whole thing game tumbling down, it’s like a child tipped over the checkerboard game.

This is why, I was rather optimistic when I noted that in the last couple weeks of 2009 – there were mixed news reports, some predicting a second coming, or double dip, while others were completely bullish. It’s easy to say in hindsight what would have seemed obvious back then, but that’s not really the case, and I’d like to go through some of the news events towards the end of 2009, the last couple weeks and explains some thoughts on some of these major headlines.

British Airways cabin crew unions are threatening a 12 day walkout over Christmas; which didn’t happen. Of course, it did happen around March 20, 2010 and it sent BA’s stock into the sink hole temporarily. The airline industry has had a rough go of it, and it hardly matters which airline or part of the world, oh sure there have been one or two success stories in all this, but clearly no one has broken the speed record. Nevertheless, some airline stocks have soared off the bottom as profits climb off the bottom of the recession, you know like Ford and the Bank Stocks.

Also in the last few weeks of 2009, Vice president Joe Biden said major innovation, green initiatives, will create jobs during his speaking tour, claiming the stimulus worked; and cited many jobs which have been created and many more, or quite a few more to follow. This is a positive spin on the economy from an administration that warned us of a double-dip if we didn’t stimulate and push up the economy.

The US dollar got a slight boost, oil was flat gold was down and Asian markets were also down. Like I said mixed economic indicators, which is better than all one-sided and the big fake out, catching businesses, investors, and job seekers off-guard. In fact during this period I noted a headline stating that: “Congress is considering passing a bill which would require cable companies to not raise the volume during advertisements.” Well, if that’s all Congress has to worry about, that too is a good thing, as it means less meddling in important matters, less change means more stability and happier markets.

If you will recall North Korea’s currency was crashing and they were calling for strict curfews and considering revaluation of their currency. Which means economic sanctions and future efforts are working to negotiate favorably for a “No-Nuke” deal, again, less bad-news, more stability in foreign affairs, trade, and global economic conditions. Of course, there was some negative news from next door; Mexico’s debt was downgraded just above junk status from BBB+ to BBB, which is not good for us or Mexico. On the economic climate talk front we saw poorer nations joining in at Copenhagen to try to push the rich nations to give them money for the global warming damages they caused (supposedly), while this kept many smaller nations engaged on climate issues, it was one of those not so good stories, divisive and problematic. That’s okay; we’ll take the good with the bad.

During this time we also noted that Homebuilders confidence level was slightly lower, but about what was expected. And this is good, as there were few doom and gloom predictions from economic experts in the sector, calling for another avalanche of challenges in real estate. In fact, one good piece of news was that the City Center in Las Vegas and the new casino was opening in the last week of 2009. – ARIA Casino – an $8.5 billion project; imagine that. One of the worst economically slammed areas is opening a new giant casino? That’s a good start to 2010.

On the consumer front, we noted that Best Buy beats earnings estimate in the third quarter of 2009, which was not expected. Extended warranty purchases were up 10% in Q3 and Q4 of 2009 according to the national retail Association in a report on auto sales. Christmas sales were basically flat, but not down, which was good news, very good news, signaling that 2010 would be a re-building year, instead of a disaster.

Why is all this important you ask?

Simple, because all good news is bad, and all bad news is scary. So, some good and some bad, means that in all the chaos and sector rotations, things are moving along as they should. Please consider this before your mind falls victim to the nay sayers and doom and gloom catastrophe crowd.

Arts and Photography in The New Era

Quite often, people find it difficult to differentiate the term art and photography with more clarity. Many photographers who have their own way of taking unique snapshots want to present their work in fine arts category. It will not be possible for you to decide on whether to accept it as an Art or as a simple photography if you do not have a precise knowledge on what is Art and Photography plus how they are related with and different from each other. There have been a lot of discussions on this topic; yet, it is still tough to make a stable stand on this topic.To make it more concise, you can just try admiring a true fine art work and a unique photograph, then can decide on which one of these hold your attention, interest and admiration for a longer duration. The answer is hidden on the power of attraction of the work you are admiring. On the other hand, you can also not forget that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. The beauty of a snapshot or a picture cannot be underestimated based on the way it has been created and you cannot say that all paintings are appealing and inspiring. It is still possible to bring the details of a subject through a brush or a camera making both arts and photography stand on a stronger platform individually.Arts and photography still have their own place and cannot be termed as an identical matter. An artist cannot capture any memorable moment as distinctly and fast as a photographer can do. Similarly, it will be tough for a photographer to create something very precious, irreplaceable and astonishing artworks as the artists use to produce from the very talent they own unlike normal people. But, both arts and photography have strongly appealing attraction that cannot be compared and cannot be taken in to bias conclusions.It is not possible to wrap up these two different terms under a single phrase and at the same time; you cannot ignore the importance of these works, one over another. To sum up, with the changing pattern of arts and the technological developments we are experiencing today has brought a more fair answer on these two different terms. If both the arts and photography are combined together, it is possible to bring more refined pictures that can inspire and lure the beholder that an artwork or a photograph alone cannot do.

Your Service Experience Doesn’t Have to Be a Nightmare!

There seems to be an alarming amount of consumers that are generally unhappy with their service experiences in automobile dealerships, chain type retail facilities and private repair facilities. There are many reasons for this disappointment and many people that contribute to these results. You have the selling dealer or used car lot, the servicing dealer or service facility, the manufacturer who built the product and the consumer who uses the product. We have identified some of the most common causes through experiences and research. We’ll take a look at these causes in three different categories; these three categories can be explained as one or all of the causes of ninety percent of customer’s disappointment with their service experiences. They are, in no particular order as follows;Expectations: Your expectations of your automobile may be higher than what the manufacturer has designed for its products.Inability: It is possible, that the servicing facility you have chosen doesn’t have the ability to properly service your automobile.Communication: There may be some difficulty expressing your concerns about your automobile.So who is at fault? Everyone involved would be the easy answer, but let’s look at the problem from the individual categories and see how they contribute to the consumer’s disappointment.First you have the manufacturer that has advertised and touted it’s product to seemingly perform like no other car you have ever seen. You remember the ads of your car being driven to the extremes in any climate doing the impossible, giving you the buyer the false pretense that this car will perform like that for anyone. Not true, you may have missed the disclaimer that the car was being operated by a professional stunt driver or that the events are for illustration purposes only, etc. etc. This is how your expectations of your service experience will not be met by the servicing facility, simply put, they cannot make your car perform in a way that it was not designed for.You can be servicing your car in a place that was well qualified to service and repair your older car, but it may seem that the technology in your new car is just over the top for your service facility. Your new car is most likely an upgrade from your older car and the facility that is servicing your repair needs may not have adjusted to technology. Technology in today’s cars is rapidly becoming overwhelming to some independent repair facilities and some chain store repair facilities, so it is no surprise that when you present your new car for servicing, they may not be equipped with the training and equipment to properly service your car. You will need to identify this before investing in repairs that your facility is unqualified to perform. For instance: If your repair facility is charging you for diagnostic fees relevant to the amount of time spent on the car, you may be being charged for the time necessary for the technician to become familiar with your cars systems. It doesn’t seem fair for a consumer to pay for the facilities training of their technicians.If you’re not able to communicate your concerns of your cars behavior to the servicing facility, than you may be wasting their time as well as yours. If the people writing your concerns at your service facility don’t have a clear understanding of what you expect of them, in terms of problems with your car, they may find noises or problems that are totally unrelated to your concerns or worse they may not find any problems that relate to your concerns at all. This problem can be the most disappointing because you could actually end up authorizing a repair that does nothing to address your concern. Or you may be experiencing an intermittent condition that only appears during certain driving conditions that the service facility is unaware of.If you expect a successful service experience you will need to identify the possible problems that can prevent your success. To understand what you will have to do to overcome these problems, you must be able to identify the differences between your service expectations versus your cars specifications. Make sure that your service facility is qualified and equipped to diagnose and repair your car efficiently. And you will need to learn to communicate the details of your concerns to your servicing facility.When your dealing with a warranty issue and the servicing dealer is unable to provide satisfactory results, you may want to step back and re-examine your approach on how to get the results you desire. You can certainly get better results by keeping a good relationship with the servicing dealer. You can also enlist the assistance of the manufacturer when all else fails. The manufacturer is the one entity that has the most to gain by satisfying their consumers who use their products because, it has been proven that satisfied consumers sell products better than any other form of advertising.Sometimes your best efforts and attempts to help the servicing facility to solve your concerns still yield little results. When the manufacturer is involved and you are still not seeing the results you require for your satisfaction your state laws may lead you to what’s called “Lemon Law” or the manufacturer can allow the case to be decided by an independent arbitrator. An arbitrator will examine all of the service history, review all repair attempts to date and gather information from the manufacturer about the specifications of the car. At this time your education about your responsibilities will have to be polished because the way that you have gone about the repair attempts will also be weighed on the decision to reimburse or even buy back the automobile from you with little to no cost to the consumer. Manufacturers have chosen this sort of remedy to help solve habitual problem cars with cooperative consumers. This process helps to alleviate the consumers concerns in a timely fashion and to eliminate a long and costly court battle. Check your state laws about your warranty coverage as this option is usually only available while the car is under the manufacturer’s original warranty, not an extended warranty policy.When you’re having difficulty achieving results for your repair or service needs and your car is not under warranty, you will learn that the same procedures and practices will help you to achieve the results you’re looking for. And you will need to keep track of your costs and methods used to achieve satisfactory results for specific repair attempts and you will need to learn how your repair orders accuracy will play a vital role for your case if it has to go so far as your States Office of Consumer Affairs. There are some very specific guidelines that your repair facility should be following to ensure their customers satisfaction with their services. Your service facility should be qualified in training and equipment necessary to service your car and they should be verifying your concerns.We have identified the need for an education regarding your service experiences, you will learn how the skills in the later chapters can benefit you when dealing with any repair facility and any repair problem. Whether your car is under warranty by the manufacturer or if it’s covered by an extended warranty policy. It could be a recurring problem that you just can’t seem to get solved or, the simplest of annoying noises that your service facility just can’t seem to identify or repair to your satisfaction.Learn your rights as a consumer so you don’t end up paying twice for the same repair attempt. Know the difference’s between a car that operates at specifications and your own expectations of your car. Find out what’s written in the owner’s manual that came with your car. Take note of your concerns and learn how to communicate these notes to your service facility so everybody is on the same page when trying to guarantee “Your Next Successful Service Experience”.This article in its entirety is chapter 1 of our up-coming release “Your Next Successful Service Experience” and it promises to deliver on all of these points for your successful service experiences.
