What Is Random Acts Of Kindness Week All About?

If you have never been a part of Random Acts Of Kindness Week, then you should probably read this article and take a look at the article that Uloop just published about Random Acts Of Kindness Week. The article talks a lot about Skout’s recent survey that they conducted to get an idea about how their users felt about random acts of kindness and to understand what percentage of their users have been involved in these types of selfless acts in their lifetimes. Apparently, 51 percent of the users they surveyed are doing selfless deeds every day of their life (on average). This made me feel like the world is a kinder place to live.

There’s also a list in that Uloop article that shows what deeds the Skout survey population sees as the most meaningful. The entire list is pretty inspirational, so if you want to go out of your way to do something kind for a stranger, then you should visit that article for inspiration. It has deeds like holding the door open for a stranger, emptying the spare change that you’re carrying into a charity bin and buying flowers to give to a random stranger. Can you imagine how sweet that must feel to have a stranger give you flowers?

Getting To Know A Little About Skout

There’s a whole network of people on Skout’s platform that are excited to meet new people, so they are ready for you whenever you are ready to sign up and talk to them. Skout is a free application, and it’s pretty easy to get started. You can take advantage of Skout’s feature called Feature Me to get more people talking to you. This feature shows your profile to more people, so you will get more people talking to you when you sign up for it.

I never realized how easy it would be to make friends until I signed up with Skout. Skout is the best way to make close friends online, and I have made a few really close friends in real life because of it. I have also talked to a few romantic interests that I found on Skout, but don’t feel pressure to make a romantic connection on Skout because so many people use it just to make friends.

Here’s the article from Uloop.

Slyce: A Visual Search and Recognition Giant in the Making

Published Post author

The business world has experienced tremendous diversification in business ideas, opportunities and growth. Technology advancement has aided in boosting new fresh ideas into the market. What seemed impossible in the past is now done efficiently and in the fastest way possible. This has led to the creation of more businesses and consequently growth of the economies of the world. Visual search and image recognition is a now fast growing business opportunity. It entails use of an application that does image searching of a particular image target. However, this target should be known ahead of time.

One of the businesses that have created a niche for itself in this line of business is Slyce. A Toronto based startup, which has evolved with the creation of technology that can intelligently pick point items and in turn connect the consumer to retailers with online stores in possession of similar items. Erika Racicot and Cameron Chell founded it in the year 2012.

The Slyce image search and recognition application is easy for a consumer to use, since it entails taking a picture of an item one likes from anywhere and using it for visual search. The application quickly recognizes the item and directs the consumer to a site where he or she can purchase a similar one.

Slyce works under the hood of websites of big companies, in a process referred to as White-label solution. Slyce has been working with six among the top retailers in the United States. It is aiding retailers to be at the exact point a consumer arouses interest in a particular item they offer. All a consumer requires is a smart phone to take a picture or a desktop version. Thus, breaking the norm of how and when retailers reach out to their customers and how the customers themselves access and purchase items.

Slyce’s marketing motivation mainly revolves around forming relationships and partnerships with big consumer brands. This works by offering their technology by integrating it into the existing retailer’s technology. To boost its business Slyce operates by working as both an enterprise solution firm and by taking a customer standpoint. The enterprise solution comes in by offering the White Label Visual Search.

Unlike other image recognition applications, Slyce has the ability to recognize products in whatever location even if they are not in their original packaging. This has come as a competitive advantage, that is promising to boost more business and revenue its way. In its competition agenda, the company has been looking into using visual identification to tag products for mobile gift registries. In addition, it is aiming at getting coupons for identified items.

Slyce has also been able to acquire a firm called Pounce in the recent times. The ability of Pounce’s technology made it desirable as it allows consumers to go ahead to search for items from multiple retailers’ online sites by using their first payment details.

Skout Has Many Opportunities For Me To Find A Date

Published Post author

I still remember the last date that I went on, and the date was a total disaster. I always vowed that I wouldn’t date again because the dating scene was boring, people were crazy, and I feared for my safety. I never thought that I’d find myself dating online, but it seems to be very popular these days. I know lots of people that have found dates online, and I even know a few people that have found love and marriage online. I decided that I would try something new, and I figured that dating online would be the start.

I went from one dating site to another before I finally found one that I really liked. The first dating site I went to was a popular one, but it didn’t appeal to me. The problem with the first dating site is that they wanted to charge money for everything, even if I just wanted to contact someone else. I don’t understand what’s the point of a dating site, if I have to pay to contact someone else, then how would I find a date? The second dating site I chose was great, but I realized eventually, that all the women were in another country.

I guess I figured that the women were speaking in a secretive language that I couldn’t understand, but I didn’t realize that it was a Russian dating site. I felt really stupid when I kept going after a certain girl, but she seemed to be ignoring me, but I realized it’s just that she couldn’t understand me. I’m not one for following fads, so I was reluctant to go onto a popular dating site, but I knew I had to try something different before I gave up on dating again. I chose to go to the Skout network, and it’s the best decision that I’ve made in a while.

The Skout network is a great online dating site, and I can even use my cell phone to access the application. I didn’t wait too long to download the Skout application, especially since I spent most of the day on my phone. I take my cell phone with me everywhere I go, so I have no problem using the Skout application. Once I turn my cell phone on, the first place I go to is Skout. I can use Skout’s location services to find a person that lives in my area, and the person is ready and willing to date.

Dating on Skout has been a lot more fun than dating on several other networks, and I realized how much I liked the network when I found myself on Skout for five hours one day. Night had come and gone, and it was 2 AM before I realized that I hadn’t looked up from my phone in hours. I have found a few dates on the Skout network, but I haven’t found anyone serious yet. The Skout network definitely has a lot of opportunities for me, and I’m looking forward to finding a great partner.
