The Benefits of GPS and GPS Tracking

 GPS (Global Positioning System) tracking is not a new technology as it was first used in the 1960s by the US Navy.  It is a space-based navigation system that provides accurate location and time information about virtually anything using a GPS tracking device.  It was used initially by the military during combat and has been used since in other industries like cargo and freight, vehicles, cellular phones and many others. 

In 1989, President Ronald Reagan issued a directive making GPS available for civilian use.

What are the benefits of GPS?

1. Surveying - for making maps
2. Map-making - cartographic maps
3. Navigation - to determine the exact location and distance
4. Cellular telephony - clock synchronization
5. Tectonics - fault motion measurement in earthquakes
6. GPS Tours - to give details about a specific location
7. Geofencing - cargo and freight tracking, animal tracking, vehicle and person tracking
8. Recreation - drawing, geocaching
9. GPS Aircraft Tracking - military
10. Geotagging - application of coordinates to digital objects like photos and other documents to create map overlay
11. Phasor measurement units - timestamping of power system measurements

It is not unusual anymore to include GPS tracking device to electronic devices.  With GPS tracking installed in your cars, for example, you are sure of where your kids and elders go.  It can also be used to trace the location of stolen vehicles.  With GPS tracking, you can trace the location of your cargo and you are sure that it will never get lost.  With GPS tracking, you will never be lost again.  The possibilities and benefits of a GPS tracking device are endless.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.
To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Something hairy, soft and wet

It is the time of gift giving and Kris Kringle again. Of course, our office is also in to the spirit of generosity. It is already our third week and I am the lamest gift giver lately. I have to make amends to that since my 'baby' is someone who is dear to me, someone who I trust.

I already have the 'something embarrassing to carry in public' and it is too embarrassing for me to show in this post. Let me just focus on the 'something hairy and soft' and 'something wet'. I was lucky to find both in one cute gift set... The hairy and soft teddy bear key chain and the wet but fragrant cologne.

Don't worry if I spilled the beans, my officemates have no idea that I have a blog.

Do you have Kris Kringle in your office?
