File Server Needs Back-up

File server is storage of the important files, documents, movies, photos, games and many more. Instead on storing it inside the computers’ storage, it is stored to the network so that if ever the files are corrupted or lost, it can be easily retrieved. In using file server, you will be more confident on whatever will happen to your computer files. Even if files are lost or damaged in one computer unit, they can still be retrieved fully intact.

Who needs file servers?

Most of the time, file servers are used in private offices and also in schools because these places have the most files whether paper files or perhaps computer files. There are other methods to keep your files secured and there are many people who use it. However, it is not recommended. One of these methods are the use of a flash drives that can install a large size of computer files. Also, with the use of a back-up CD, storing of files are easier than using a flash drive. In Singapore, many people or business owners (small or big) use a dedicated dynaserver modern method of storing files.


Why is there a need to back-up a file server?

There are a lot of ways so that that files in the computer will not be lost or if it is lost, it can be retrieved immediately and accurately. That’s how it works. On the other hand, a dedicated file server in Singapore needs a backup system because there can also be a possibility that the server will destroy its files. However this is not the same as the fees saved in the flash drive or a compact disc. Since there are different types of file server, only few of them have programs that can perform back up to the stored files.


Advantages of using a file server

It’s a great advantage when a file server has back up programs or functions. For instance, file servers are connected to a network which means if you store a file in it, it will only be available or you can only download it, for example, photos and videos if it is connected n the internet. So, once file servers shuts down for no reason at all, the files inside cannot be seen, retrieved or get. Because file servers are very important to all offices, schools and other buildings, it is needed to be backed-up because important files are what a file server carries. Once it is lost, there will be a big problem not just for you but for other people who may have lost their files in the server. However, this scenario happens in rare cases.

In Singapore, the higher class of file servers are produced, and it has increased consistency and increased security in the files or data a person has. Even if it is said that it can give you confidence especially that it can retrieve a lost file, you still cannot predict what will happen. The best option for this is to secure more back-up so that the files are well protected and properly hidden.

Encouraging Women to Stand Up

This year’s Aware (Association of Women for Action & Research) Heroine goes to Rachel Chung. The award recognizes the effort of Ms. Chung and her bravery to stand up against abuse. Ms. Chung experienced eight years of violent marriage. She finally filed her divorce when her then-husband tossed their daughter when the daughter tried to protect her.

She is now a counsellor who gives talks and shares her story with myriad women who suffer the same thing. Abuse is not new. Many women suffer abuse every day. It is important that they should be encouraged to stand up. What are helpful coping strategies for women who suffer abuse:

Support System

Many women do not stand up because they believe no one will understand or listen. That is where they are wrong. These days, there are many support groups or support system that they can lean on. Just think that you do not deserve to be treated that way and there are others who suffer the same pain.


Crying is not a sigh of weakness or yielding to the abuse. Sometimes we all need a good cry so we can pour out whatever we feel. Crying can help you feel better and lighter. If you have friends around, do not hesitate to cry in front of them.

Keep Busy

If you keep yourself busy, you can  cope up. You should choose activities that are beneficial for you. For example, you can exercise. You can also consider relaxation exercises like massage and yoga. You can sleep or think about your balanced diet. You can read, appreciate music and art and many more.

The abuse is not something that could perish after crying, talking about it or keeping busy. It will stay but it depends on us if we want to move on with our life. Coping with abuse may take weeks, months or even years. We have different paces so it is important that you find your own and take it slow.

What You Need To Know About PSI

We regularly receive PSI (Pollutant Standards Index) forecasts but there are others who do not understand it. They just go about their daily lives without bothering to check the PSI. You should be aware that PSI is developed by USEPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency). They developed a system that will effectively supply precise, apt and clear information pertaining to air pollution levels day by day.

The pollutants that are used in determining PSI index include ozone, sulphur, nitrogen and carbon dioxide and PM10. It is the monitoring stations scattered strategically in different parts of the city that measure these pollutants. They will release PSI value vis-à-vis PSI descriptor.

PSI Value and PSI Descriptor

PSI Value is from 0 to above 300. PSI descriptor is from Good to Hazardous. A PSI value corresponds to a PSI descriptor. 0-50 PSI value means ‘Good’, 51-100 PSI value means ‘Moderate’, 101-200 PSI value means ‘Unhealthy’, 201-300 PSI value means ‘Very unhealthy’ and above 300 PSI value means ‘Hazardous’.

Health Advisory

Together with the PSI value and descriptor, a health advisory is released. Health advisory is the way of the government to warn and protect the public. Health advisories are based on the PSI. It will give recommendations to ‘healthy persons’, ‘elderly, pregnant women and children’ and ‘persons with chronic lung disease, heart disease or stroke’ the best thing to do. The health advisory will tell you the best time to wear your N95 masks.

The Effects of Haze

Many people take haze lightly but in truth, haze can cause major health risks. Prolonged exposure to haze can affect the lungs and heart especially to those who have chronic lung or heart disease. It can also irritate the throat, eyes and nose.
