Ways to be different in a business

 

In this highly competitive world, there is traffic in almost all the industries and if we would like to bedifferent and unique among the competitors, then we must take some actions and put in more efforts on it. Here are some of the ways to achieve it easily.

  1. The business owners must be very clear about their deliveries and it must be on time without any delay. In case of any problems in deployment, they ought to inform the clients prior. The customersprobably expect an extraordinary servicefrom the owner and if we satisfy them in an abundant way, then, without a doubt, we would easily grab the most topposition in the business market in front of all other competitors.
  2. The customers are like the almighty for a business manufacturer and it is obvious that we are nothing without them. Thus, we must always work on how to satisfy their requirements in an enormous way. Many businessmen are lacking in this point and that is the major reason for a fall in the
  3. We should enquire the problems of the patrons and work on it to change it as much as we can. This is the primary victory of the traders. However, most of us in this industry are merely money-minded and if you really want to an odd man out of it, then transform your customer’s issues into a positive one.
  4. Focusing on our niche helps us to bring up more things to our business company. Find your perfect idea, do work on it massively and achieve the greater heights.
  5. Offers and discounts are the common things which the clients expectfrom the businessmen. Thus we must provide them all those things in a very different way so that we can pull the customers towards our organization.
  6. The regulars watch everything in us including the business place They will decide whether to have dealings with us based on the workplace atmosphere. To stand out from the business challengers, the business traders must think in a broader way.
  7. Advertising is very important for every business and the way we promote our business products and services decide the profits and loss. To be special among the other traders, do marketing in a realistic way.

For example, though there are several automated trading softwares available online, the traders choose Bitcoin Loophole just because it provides a comfort zone to the users.

Thus, concluding that businesscompetitionmust be healthy and we should avoid being cunning and jealous of the other participants, else it might end up with a lot of unnecessary misunderstanding and fights.

Raymond Tjapaltjarri
Title: Kuta Kuta
Price: $2850.00 in Australia and Export.
PA077, 2005
Acrylic on linen
107 x 91 cm
This painting shows designs associated with the rockhole and soakage water site of Kuta Kuta, north of the Kiwirkurra community. In mythological times a large group of Tingari men camped at this site before travelling north to Piparr south of Wilkinkarra (Lake Mackay). This area belongs to the artist’s grandfather. The different areas of colour depict the sandhills that the group of men followed on their travel. Raymond is the son of famous, award winning Papunya Tula artist, Patrick Olodoodi Tjungurrayi. Since events associated with the Tingari Circle are of a secret nature no further detail was given. Generally the Tingari are a group of mythical characters of the Dreaming who travelled over vast stretches of the country, performing rituals and creating and shaping particular sites. The Tingari men were usually followed by Tingari women and accompanied by novices and their travels and adventures are enshrined in a number of song cycles. These mythologies form part of the teachings of the post initiatory youths today as well as providing explanations for contemporary customs.

Price: $2100.00 in Australia and Export.
PA1502, 2010
Acrylic on canvas
112 x 160 cm
Roy’s paintings are always rich with story which reflects his wealth of knowledge and authority in many areas of Spinifex country and beyond. In this dense design, Roy paints Miramiratjara, a place of a serious nature in that it cannot be accessed without the accompaniment of senior custodians. At Miramiratjara there are many Wanampi (water snakes) who guard a permanent underground water supply. This area was a place that people could retreat to when all of the rockhole water had dried up in the harshest periods. Roy has indicated briefly the presence of the Karnka (crow) story at Miramiratjara being the reason for the red background. The karnka set the area on fire due to a dispute with another party. There are other aspects of the story which are sacred.

Plants and Herbs used in Traditional Aboriginal Medicine

Medicine men sometimes employed plants and herbs in their rites, but they did not usually practice secular medicine. The healing of trivial non-spiritual complaints, using herbs and other remedies, was practiced by all Aborigines, although older women were usually the experts. To ensure success, plants and magic were often prescribed side-by-side.

Plants were prepared as remedies in a number of ways. Leafy branches were often placed over a fire while the patient squatted on top and inhaled the steam. Sprigs of aromatic leaves might be crushed and inhaled, inserted into the nasal septum, or prepared into a pillow on which the patient slept. To make an infusion, leaves or bark were crushed and soaked in water (sometimes for a very long time), which was then drunk, or washed over the body. Ointment was prepared by mixing crushed leaves with animal fat. Other external treatment included rubbing down the patient with crushed seed paste, fruit pulp or animal oil, or dripping milky say or a gummy solution over them. Most plant medicines were externally applied.

Medicine plants were always common plants. Aborigines carried no medicine kits and had to have remedies that grew at hand when needed. If a preferred herb was unavailable, there was usually a local substitute.

In the deserts, the strongest medicines are made from very widely occurring plants. Fuchsia bushes (Eremophila) and bloodwood trees (Eucalyptus terminalis) grow everywhere and were used fresh,or as ground leaves.

Lemon grasses (Cymbopogon) sprout on every ridge top and jirrpirinypa (Stemodia viscosa) around every water hole.

Emu bush (Eremophila)
Weeping Emu Bush (Eremophila longifolia)
In the Top End, many different kinds of large leaves are considered useful for staunching wounds, presumably because cases of profuse bleeding allow little time for searching.

Except for ointments, which were made by mixing crushed leaves with animal fat, medicines were rarely mixed. Very occasionally two plants were used together.

Aboriginal medicines were never quantified – there were no measured doses or specific times of treatment. Since most remedies were applied externally, there was little risk of overdosing.

Some medicines were known to vary in strength with the seasons. Aromatic lemon grasses had to be picked while green, and toothed ragwort leaves (Pterocaulon serrulatum) were strongest after rain. A wet season growth of green plum leaves (Buchanania obovata), used as a toothache remedy, was considered much stronger than that available during dry.

One area of Aboriginal medicine with no obvious Western parallel was baby medicine. Newborn babies were steamed or rubbed with oils to renter them stronger. Often, mothers were also steamed.

A notable feature of Aboriginal medicine was the importance placed upon oil as a healing agent, an importance that passed to white colonists, and is reflected today in the continuing popularity of goanna oil.

Earth, mud, sand, and termite dirt were also taken as medicines. In the Channel Country, healing mud for packing wounds was taken from the cold beds of water holes. In many parts of Australia, wounds were dressed with dirt or ash. Arnhem Land Aborigines still eat small balls of white clay and pieces of termite mound to cure diarrhea and stomach upsets. Clay and termite earth probably share the properties of kaolin, which is the white clay used in western medicine. They may also provide essential nutrients: some termite mounts are extraordinarily rich in iron -as high as two percent. But whether this can be absorbed through the stomach has yet to be determined.

Aboriginal Languages

Australian Aboriginal languages are not hard to pronounce, once a few basic principles are understood. The first is that every vowel should be clearly pronounced. As a rule, u is like the oo in the English word ‘boot’, i like the vowel in ‘bit’ and a like that in ‘hat’. If a vowel letter is doubled, then pronounce it very long.

In most languages b can be substituted for p, d for t and g for k with no difference to the meaning of the word. Some people use b, d and g while others prefer p, t and k; either set of letters is satisfactory. Thus, the name of the language spoken west of Alice Springs is sometimes spelt Pintupi and sometimes Bindubi; and the name of the large black kangaroo in GuuguYimidhirr can be written either kang-urru or gang-urru.

While English distinguishes between b and p (but most Aboriginal languages don’t), Australian languages recognise a distinction between two kinds of r sound (which are treated as variants of one sound by speakers of English). There is the trilled sound, written rr, similar to that heard in Scottish English, and a liquid sound, r, similar to that in normal Australian English.

Where dh or th is written, they indicate a sound like d or t but with the tongue touching the teeth.

The hardest sound for English speakers to master is ng. English does have this sound, but only at the end of a word; it is the sound after the a in ‘bang’. Australian languages have ng at the beginning of words. In many languages the pronoun ‘I’ is ngayu. It only needs a bit of practice to say ng at the beginning of a word. Say bang-ayu (make sure you just say ng, as in ‘singer’, and not ng + g, as in ‘finger’). Say bangayu a few times and gradually drop off the ba-. Thus, bang-ayu, bangayu, ngayu.

The alphabet has only been invented two or three times in the history of the world. Speakers of one language tend to ‘borrow’ an alphabet used by some other language, and adapt it for their own needs. The English alphabet was taken from Latin, which was based on the Greek alphabet, which was in turn based on an alphabet that was probably invented in the ancient Middle East. Australian languages are now being written in a phonetic alphabet, with one symbol for each sound wherever possible (for ng we have to use two, since the Roman alphabet has no suitable letter). These Australian alphabets are being used for books, and in newspapers.

The present situation
For generations, Aboriginal children attended schools in which reading and writing were taught only in English, a language which some of them could not speak or understand. In the early 1970s bilingual education was introduced in some Aboriginal communities; children learn to read and write in their native language first, and later switch to English. This is a major factor in ensuring that some Aboriginal languages will survive.

Many Aboriginal people are deeply concerned about the state of their languages. Language centres have been established in different parts of the country to keep the languages going. Aboriginal media associations, which broadcast radio and television programs in Aboriginal languages, are another important means of preservation.

The languages are also being modified. Speakers of Aboriginal languages have evolved words and phrases to describe introduced technology, social structures and activities, and other changes that have occurred since European contact. Sometimes they borrow words from English; sometimes they make up new words; and sometimes they extend the meaning of existing words. For example, in many Aboriginal languages the word for ‘stone, pebble’ is now used for ‘money’ as well.

Two new Aboriginal languages have evolved; these are ‘creoles’. One, Cape York Creole, is spoken on Torres Strait Islands and Queensland communities; the other, Kriol, is spoken across northern Australia. Many of the words in Kriol are borrowed from English, but they are pronounced with the phonetics of an Aboriginal language, put together in sentences with the rules of Aboriginal grammar, and given Aboriginal meanings (which often differ quite a bit from their original English meanings).

While opinions differ about the future of Kriol, many young Aborigines in the north recognise Kriol as their ‘own’ language, and bilingual education is proceeding in this new mode of speech.

Most of these paintings have never been seen in Australia in the three decades since they were painted. This book is the catalogue accompanying a landmark exhibition of the Museum’s collection of Papunya paintings from the 1970s and early 1980s. It contains numerous illustrations of the major works as well as images of the artists at work and in their country. It contains essays by John Kean (an early Papunya coordinator), Phillip Batty, Vivien Johnson and Fred Myers. The paintings are organized chronologically.
