Where To Buy Surgical Masks Online

The world is gripping with the pandemic Novel Coronavirus that has infected over 400,000 people worldwide and recorded over 18,000 deaths todate.  Hospitals and government are desperately searching for masks to protect these frontliners.

The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

  • Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
  • Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

If you are healthy, only wear mask when you only need to wear mask if you are taking care of a person with suspected 2019-nCoV infection.  Wear a mask if you are coughing or sneezing.  Masks are only effective when used in combination with frequent hand washing with alcohol-based hand sanitizes or soap and water.

Panic buying has resulted in a shortage of face masks in the market. Some people even resorted to diy their own face masks. A normal face mask cannot protect against the coronavirus.  A more specialized mask, known as an N95 respirator, can protect against the new coronavirus, also called SARS-CoV-2. The respirator is thicker than a surgical mask.  These masks are available at this online store – Babyonlinewholesale.com.

3 Benefits of Castor Oil

Many companies across different industries use some sort of oil. Industrial castor oil, for example, works well in soaps, cosmetics and manufacturing. The oil comes from castor beans and is a renewable resource, which is useful as the world runs out of other forms of oil. In the coming years, more companies will have to switch to using renewable oils. If you’re considering using castor oil, consider this and other benefits that it offers.

1. It’s Renewable

With the decline of the natural oil supply, renewable sources are becoming more important. Since castor oil comes from the growth of castor beans, it’s a renewable source of oil. You don’t have to worry about the supply suddenly going away. Whether you need a little or a lot of castor oil, you just have to worry about sourcing it from a farmer.

2. It’s Easy to Grow

While castor beans primarily grow in a small region in India, they’re easy to grow. Of course, that means you don’t have to worry about it dying out. However, the production has to keep up with the demand. As the popularity castor oil increases, this may change as it can be hard to grow in certain climates.

3. It’s Useful

You can use castor oil in a variety of products and manufacturing methods. Whether you make soaps or need a way to smooth out machinery, you can use castor oil. While it’s not the most popular vegetable oil, it works well for many things. It also works well in industrial products like paint, ink and coatings. The oil can even blend with diesel fuel for a biodiesel alternative.

Castor oil may not be a household name, but it offers plenty of uses and benefits. Whatever industry you work in, you can find a way to incorporate the renewable oil. Then, you won’t have to worry about using up a resource.

Tips to pick F&B location for your cafe

When you are struggling to keep yourself sane in your 15-hour shift of work, avoid punching people with laptops that hog the tables will build self-control very well and also inner peace. Same goes to starting a cafe but before getting to that step, you will need to be famous that draws the crowd to your cafe. While you may think of opening a cafe near the Tre Ver condominium may seem profiting but it may not be as lucrative as setting up in the commercial area. Here’s how to pick a good location for your cafe.

1.  Be sure to research your target demographic preferred hang out places

There are two ways to pick a location and to decide which to use, you will need to answer this question:

Should you pulse olive oil when preparing wild Alaskan pollock?

If your answer is anything other than “who the hell knows”, you are probably the kind of dreamer with dream cafe. Now, this is where you will need to your intended demographic and choose a location where they hang out and spend their time.

Here’s a note for reminder, it is not moving to where they are but rather to where they hang out. With that being said, opening your cafe near school does not mean students will patron your cafe. On the other hand, if it is being their favourite hang out spot located 10 km away will have the higher chances to bring them to the cafe or restaurant.

If your cafe is not the ‘dream cafe’ type, but more of an opportunist which you can turn it the other way round. For example, you spotted a place with lot of factories and workers but no canteen. This is the opportunity for you to set up a cafe that caters for the specific group like the yong tau foo, not some fancy lobster in some expensive sauce).

2.  Ensure sufficient table space to cover costs

Assuming you know how much you will need to make each day for your cafe to break even and even if you don’t, there’s really a good article: Really Bad Business Decisions and How You’re About to Make One.

For the rest of you who do know what you will need to break even, here’s a rule of thumb: there should be enough tables for you to hit that break even point after the first turnover. Restaurants or coffee shops can count on multiple turnovers even if they are lack of table space because people eat and leave quickly. However, if you are running a cafe, you tend to get lesser turnovers and its because students sit around your space with laptops, financial advisors talking to their clients, or people hanging around for an hour or so till their appointment or movie begins. But then again, it’s pretty pointless if you intend to get twice more tables if you cannot fill up most of them.

3.  Check the URA Master Plan

If you are expected to stay in the area for some time, do keep a check on the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) frequently for the neighbourhood you are working. The consequences of rezoning or redevelopment can have a drastic impact on an F&B outlet.

For example, considering what happens if most of your customers are from an industrial nearby and URA decides to tear it down next year. Even if there’s a replacement that can be meant two or three years without the bulk of your customer base.

As mentioned in Point 1, your target customers may move or migrate around if the area is redeveloped. If a small neighbourhood mall turns into a range of wine bars, the students who were the intended demographic may leave. What’s even worse is that the new F&B outlets provide competition for the new customer base. You can treat it like a football match: where players run to where the ball is going to and not to where it is right now. Besides, if you are doing well, you can still blame the referee for the unfairness. Thus, be agile and flexible of your business, you can open up the second branch.

Gift Tags for Jam Jars

A good friend of mine loves to bake and she has been baking all kinds of cakes and cookies for her friends and family.  Last Christmas, she decided to embark on a little business by baking fruit cakes and gingerbread cookies.   All her bakes were snapped up in a very short time.  This shows how good she is at baking huh?  She gave me a piece of fruit cake and a jar of cookies.  They were heavenly.  I can still imagine the taste of rum from the fruitcake when I took a bite.  Recently, she is into making jams and have made quite a number of marmalade.  Since everyone loves her jam, she intends to make other types of fruit jams to sell.

Since I love to create my own gift tags, I told my friend that I would love to do some jam jar tags for her.  I am thinking of using twines and brown paper / kraft paper to create the tags.  I have a few ideas on how to design the tags.  It is going to be fun and I cannot wait to start.  I hope my friend’s baking business will continue to grow and soon she may need to get some rack cards to promote her business.
