Net Neutrality and Operator Hotels

Operator hotels and large data centers provide convenient locations for the telecommunications and network industries to interconnect with other telecommunications companies at the physical level. This is a neutral facility that provides a high density of available operators. As global telecommunications continue to develop toward packet networks and services, Internet protocol exchange and interconnection points will bring greater value to the global telecommunications community.

Large networks require small networks and content providers to compensate for the use of their infrastructure, while the Internet community usually requires free access to the infrastructure used (net neutrality) or requires large infrastructure networks to provide contracts. For small companies looking to compete with established utilities such as AT&T, Verizon, and BellSouth, operator hotels are crucial.

Regulations such as HR 5252 do not have specific network neutrality protection measures, and will push second-tier network providers to use wireless and physical cables to develop parallel infrastructures, in addition to stronger peer relationships, which can bypass large-scale network infrastructure Architecture. Operator hotels allow a neutral interconnection environment to bypass large wholesale network infrastructure or transit, thereby supporting stronger peer relationships between smaller networks and content providers.

Internet hierarchical structure

In the past 15 years or so, the Internet has been divided into three main levels:

• Layer 1-backbone carrier. These Tier 1 operators are facility-based and carry the entire Internet routing table. Generally recognized Tier 1 Internet network providers include Verizon (formerly UUNET/MCI Internet), Sprint, AT&T, and Cable&Wireless.

• Layer 2-regional and secondary Internet networks. It is also usually facility-based, but still relies on one of the first layers for some routing and transmission. This includes cable television networks, CLEC and international second-tier operators such as France Telecom’s open bus and Level 3.

• Layer 3-access network and content service provider network.

Peer-to-peer is a concept that enables networks to reach mutual agreement so that traffic can be directly transmitted between their networks without using higher-layer networks for this. Paid peer-to-peer is how layer 2 and layer 1 networks charge for smaller networks to access their backbone network or allow subscribers of their network to access the Internet in other parts of the world.

Net neutrality assumes that users will be able to control the types of content or applications they generate or access, regardless of service level or quality of service. Therefore, whether you are paying for a dedicated, all-you-can-eat port or a usage-based billing model, all you pay for is the ability to send and receive data packets at the rate agreed with your contract. “Upstream” Tier 2 or Tier 1 network providers.

The current regulations (HR5252) will allow Tier 2 and Tier 1 operators to have greater control over the content and applications generated by Tier 3 networks and content/application providers, but will also restrict end users Possibly the way to use web applications. A widely touted example is Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). Layer 1 and Layer 2 networks claim that VoIP requires higher quality of service, and therefore impose unreasonable requirements on the backbone network. They further argued that content service providers such as Google and Yahoo can provide users with their content without having to pay or pay to the backbone network provider used as the transmission network.

The babble that first appeared in HR5252 included discussions about net neutrality. Net neutrality is the principle that “Internet users should control which content they view and which applications they use on the Internet.” From the beginning, the Internet has been operating under the principle of neutrality of network service providers, promoting technological innovation, the development of online industries, and the creation of a truly global community and market.

The Internet is based on open minds, and is only occasionally challenged by restrictive governments that believe it is necessary to restrict citizens’ freedom to access and view open information. With the help of the IPv6 protocol, the government will continue to find difficulties in Internet control, as IPSEC will further utilize its ability to restrict or intercept data.

Operator hotel and net neutrality support

Carrier Hotel is essentially a real estate business. Carrier hotels make money by renting or licensing floor space, uninterrupted power supply, cooling and interconnection. The more interconnections and networks there are in an asset, the more important the asset is to the telecommunications and network provider community. The reasoning is very simple. If you are in an operator hotel, you can usually interconnect with certain networks or operators by using a local cross-connect, and in some cases, you can also use a “patch cord” cable. If you are a data center that is geographically separated from the main carrier hotel (such as Wilshire One, 60 Hudson, Westin Building or Telehouse), or a tenant in a data center operated by an existing carrier, you are interconnected with other carriers The cost of network providers and operators will be greatly increased.

A carrier hotel like One Wilshire may have more than 300 carriers and service providers as tenants in a building. Most of these tenants will be directly in a “meeting” room operated by the building, allowing all carriers to easily enter each other because everyone is nearby.

Operator hotels are locations where Layer 3 and Layer 2 networks and content and application providers can directly interconnect. This allows those networks to be “peer-to-peer” without the need to send traffic through transit or large 2/1 operators. In many cases, smaller operators and content or application providers can be equal, without the need for money to transfer funds between networks. This is important in situations where content providers may send large amounts of traffic to users on small networks. Both the content provider and the layer 3 network are likely to have reciprocal arrangements with the upstream network, causing the company and its users to pay for basically the same traffic.

The operator hotel may also provide other utilities or options for level 2 and level 3 network interconnection. Both One Wilshire and 60 Hudson run utility packet switching, allowing packet networks (Internet and Internet content/applications) to be interconnected via Internet switching. Internet exchanges (such as One Wilshire’s Any2 exchange) allow network and content providers to connect to the exchange using a single high-speed connection, and then connect with any or all other exchange participants without physical wiring or port consumption.

Bypass and packet switching

The Internet is a rich environment that supports the continuous development of advanced technologies, products and services that support communications. Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), interactive entertainment (such as multi-user games) and on-demand rich media (video) have become three areas of rapid development and growth. All three require high-performance access to end users, and all three have the potential to generate large amounts of network traffic.

In our broadband access world, most end users connect to their network through high-capacity lines, whether it is ADSL, Internet on CATV lines or wireless. For access networks, it is usually not necessary to provide a large amount of traffic to the end user. On the contrary, due to the high operating cost of connecting to an upstream network provider, paying for a large amount of traffic or higher bandwidth ports may become a factor. Paid peer-to-peer relationship.

In order to ensure a positive end-user experience, which is obviously a necessary condition for customer retention, access networks and content providers need to ensure that their users have no “bottlenecks” or traffic congestion points between interactive users or content distribution endpoints.

Packets will flow

The Internet was originally designed as a highly survivable network, allowing packets to be routed around blocks and failure points in any network. This ability to bypass obstacles and points of failure has incredible parallelism in the dynamics of Internet-related business relationships.

Whenever the architecture or business model becomes too strict, alternative models will be developed or appear. The Internet community essentially wants to be neutral, and has historically found ways to bypass restrictive networks and legal barriers, so that users can communicate freely with each other without being affected by network architecture, policies, security, and surveillance control.

Like Internet packets, the Internet community will look for methods among Method 1 and facility-based operators to try to restrict or restrict applications and services on the public Internet.

VoIP and the end of the telephone network

VoIP has received close attention from the government, telecommunications industry, and especially the end user community. Pricing, call quality, and ease of use are all important topics, as are the future regulations and security risks of sending calls over packet networks.

VoIP not only has physical network performance issues, but also has to look forward to the long-term problems of future convergence or integration of video, conferencing, application sharing, and networks. The world today runs on a numbering system called E.164. E.164 is a recommendation of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) for international and local telephone number systems. With the help of VoIP, the E.164 numbering plan is gradually being replaced by a network status indicator, which only “proxy” your desired identity on the telephone or packet network and announce that you can communicate interactively or non-interactively.

Today, the user’s instant messaging identity is the best example of an active network status indicator, but even the IM engine is rapidly adding interactive voice modules to its interface. The voice module can be directly connected to the IM interface, or it can be “proxy” through the status directory to the interface.

The recent “agent” service is called ENUM. The ENUM registry converts between E.164 phone numbers and network IP addresses or identities. In the neutral data packet exchange, the ENUM registration center allows non-wholesale or backbone VoIP operators to query the database of other VoIP phone numbers and pass VoIP calls to other network IP<->IP, bypassing any traditional forwarding phone operator when completing or terminating a “call”. If the VoIP operator has a peer-to-peer agreement, this will greatly reduce the amount that smaller VoIP operators must pay to the call forwarding provider when initiating or terminating telephone services, allowing the operator to bypass the telephone network completely for end-to-end End VoIP call.

As all networks continue to migrate to packet telephony, even ENUM will gradually be phased out. However, as a utility program available in neutral packet switching, it can help many small networks save enough operating expenses to make their lifetime longer.

Content distribution

Cache companies have existed for several years, and the most famous company (Akamai) is located in almost every major data center. The reason is simple-keep your content as close to the user as possible and the user will get the best experience. Operator hotels that support packet switching fully support content distribution. A company like Limelight can distribute mass media on demand, and it finds a carrier hotel attractive because it allows the media to bypass the need for intermediate or transit networks. The performance of the end user depends entirely on the performance of the access network.

If HR5252 cannot protect network neutrality, then this problem will become more serious. Both the access network and content owners will incur additional service quality or bulk charges for the delivery of high-bandwidth applications and content (such as VOD or streaming media). In the data packet exchange, the content provider can directly connect to all participants in the exchange, and in most cases, the content can be delivered directly through the exchange without paying for peer-to-peer.

Internet service provider peering

The ultimate benefit that operator hotels, especially those that operate neutral Internet or data packet exchange, can provide is to communicate with each other in their ISP communities. In some cases, the dynamics of the Internet will justify sending most of the traffic through a single layer 2 or layer 1 network provider. You may enjoy the best performance at the best price. However, with the continued growth of ISPs, the burden of paying transfer or usage fees to upstream network providers may justify the direct peer-to-peer relationship.

Operator hotels can easily accommodate physical interconnection and packet switching peer-to-peer networks. If you want to have a peer-to-peer interconnection between a large number of peers, and the traffic is not too high, it is best to perform packet switching. As traffic to a single network increases, switching traffic can be shifted to a dedicated physical cross-connect.

in conclusion

Operator hotels and large neutral data centers are convenient locations for all levels of Internet networks, content providers and application providers. Out of concerns about the lack of effective neutral language in HR 5252, many Tier 2, Tier 3 and content/application providers are seeking to carry hotels and neutral Internet exchanges to bypass the Tier 1 transition. Bypass will enable smaller network and content providers to have better network and application performance in participating networks, and reduce operating expenses based on usage-based billing or port fees.



Travel Guide for the Colonial Zone of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Santo Domingo is the oldest city in the New World. It was founded in 1496 by Christopher Columbus and his brother Bartholomew Columbus. The part of the city inhabited in the early 1500s is called the Zona Colonial (Spanish). The colony area has many new world firsts. The first paved street, universities, cathedrals, castles, monasteries, hospitals and fortresses-to name a few. With beautiful architecture and rich history, the colonial area is a must-see when visiting Santo Domingo. The colony is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

In the colonial area, together with the beauty of historical buildings, you will find: hotels, restaurants, cafes, museums, bars, shops, etc. The two most famous streets in the Colonial District are Calle Las Damas (Ladies) and Calle Conde. Calle Las Damas (Calle Las Damas) is a church street where high-class women walked on their way to lunch. During the day, Calle Las Damas is an amazing street, but at night, when the street lights turn the walls of the building a beautiful orange, it becomes even more amazing. Every step you take on the first paved street in the new world will take you back to a deeper time until you seem to be in Christopher Columbus’s 1500 trail.


There are many hotels to choose from, and they offer a variety of prices from economy to elegance. The good thing about budget hotels in the area is that they are clean and tidy, with friendly staff-many speak English. Keep in mind that these are old buildings. Although they are clean, most of the rooms are small and have problems with “old buildings”. However, in terms of price, I think they provide a great experience on a large scale. There are many of these hotels, and many offer different special offers at different times, so it is difficult to recommend a specific hotel. The reason I like hotels in this area is that when you walk out of the hotel door, you can take you to a place where you can enjoy without paying a taxi. You are already ranked first in Santo Domingo.

At the high end, there are several hotels to enjoy, but I will talk about Hodelpa Nicolas De Ovando. This hotel has spacious rooms, a beautiful backyard for you to enjoy the evening, and a small bar that serves delicious food for buffet breakfast and dinner. The menu is great, but the two best aspects of this hotel are it History and architecture. Christopher Columbus’s travel companion, Nicolas de Ovando, was the third governor of India. This hotel was once his residence and its history can be traced back to 1502. The house built first, for me, there is no better place to stay, allowing you to immerse yourself in the oldest urban culture in the new world. But don’t worry about whether the hotel is over budget, you can visit and enjoy cocktails in the bar or courtyard.

Things to do and see

Walking tour

I strongly recommend that you take a walking tour on Calle Las Damas and make it the first thing to do when you arrive in the colonial area. After understanding the buildings and their history, you will be able to appreciate them even more. For example, if you are sitting in Plaza Espana for dinner, when you look at the square and see a stone building, it will no longer be just a stone building, because after a hike, you will realize that this is Christopher · The house of Diego Columbus, the son of Columbus.

When walking along Calle Las Damas, your guide will contact you and they will provide you with a walking tour. So far, every trip I have taken is to speak fluent English with the tour guide. The hike usually lasts two hours. I usually talk to the tour guide first, and then ask them to focus on and try to complete the tour within 1 to 1 1/2 hours. The cost of this trip is usually around $1,000 Dominican Pesos ($20 USD), but you can try to negotiate at a lower price. The tour guides do a good job and care about me, so I think they can make $1,000 pesos.

The next section will discuss some buildings worth seeing, many of which will be included in the tour.

Buildings, museums and historical sites

Cathedral of Santa Maria/Cathedral of Santa Maria-Built in 1514, it was the first cathedral in America. This cathedral is an active cathedral, provides services, and houses 7 beautiful churches.

Alcázar de Colón It is the house of the son of Christopher Columbus (Diego Columbus). This home has been turned into a beautiful museum with some original furniture and some reproductions of original furniture. Walking in this museum, you will feel the life of Columbus in the 1500s.

Plaza of Spain It is a large open assembly area with 8 restaurants overlooking the square on one side, and Alcazar de Colon (the house of Diego Columbus, Christopher Columbus’s son) on the other side. The square is located at the end of Calle Las Damas.

Calalas damas Probably the most important street in the history of the city. This is the first paved street in America, and it is also the street where high-class women walked down after attending lunch at the church. This street is full of buildings from the 1500s, now it has become a museum, hotel, restaurant, etc. Walk along this street, you can learn history.

Calle Conde Probably the second most important street in the city. Cars are prohibited on this street, shops, cafes, restaurants, hotels are everywhere, and there is a small park (Cologne Park) in the middle and Independence Park (Independence Park) on the other side of the street.

Ozama Fortaleza It is a castle built in the 16th century, overlooking the Ozama River in the colonial area. This is the oldest European design fortress in the Americas.

San Francisco Ruinas It is the remains of a monastery built in 1508 in preparation for the Father of the Franciscans. This is considered an important ruin and is the work of Governor Nicolas de Ovando.

PPort of Patria Originally a church built for the Jesuits, it was later turned into a mausoleum to house the remains of some of the most famous national, civilian and military heroes of the Dominican Republic.

El Parque Colon (Columbus Park) It used to be the main hub for celebrations during the colonial era, and it still remains today. It is located on the opposite side of Conde Street and the Santa Maria Cathedral is opposite the hotel. It is sitting on a park bench under a tree. It is a good place to visit the museums and ruins to relax and appreciate the beauty and culture.

Restaurants, bars, cafes and nightclubs

There are many restaurants, bars, cafes and nightclubs in the colonial area. I will focus on the historically significant ones, the ones I like and the ones that our past customers like.

Overlooking Plaza de España (Spain Square) and Alcazar de Colon (Deigo Columbus’s former residence), there are 8 restaurants in total. Each of them has a Spanish and English menu at the front of the restaurant. All these 8 restaurants are elegant, and 8 of them are the longest restaurants in the New World. Pat Pallow (Wooden Legs) was once owned by a legged pirate. It is a 500-year-old restaurant where Sir Francis Drake dines. Whether you are dining at Pate Palo or one of the other 8 restaurants, you can’t go wrong with one of them.

On Conde Street, there are several restaurants to choose from. Casual clothes are worn at lunch and casual or high-end casual clothes at night. Segrefrados is an Italian restaurant, not only a place to eat, but also a great place to watch the crowd. They start your day with a cup of coffee in the morning and their pizzas are also great. To taste more traditional Dominican cuisine, you can visit the first floor of Hotel Conde. This restaurant has a terrace overlooking Parque Calon and Santa Maria Cathedral.

At the end of Calle Conde is a very famous cafe/small restaurant called Grands, formerly Pacos. This restaurant is open 24 hours a day and is a great place to start the day with coffee and breakfast. This is not a fancy place, but an ordinary cafe. On any day of the week, you will see people gather here to talk freely with their coffee and Dominican-style food, anytime you can.

LuLus Tasting Bar is a great place to enjoy cocktails and dinner. This is a very fashionable place, a high-end leisure place.

Onnos is a nightclub located in the center of the colonial district, where you can listen to the favorite music of various countries (Bachata, Merengue and Salsa).

As I mentioned before, there are more restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs to choose from, but I want to give you a list of the choices we think are the most popular. As you walk around, you will see a lot of other people, if you like someone, just enjoy it.

in conclusion

Between history, museums, excellent restaurants, cafes and nightlife, the colonial area is a must-visit for anyone visiting the Dominican Republic. This is a friendly area that speaks English and is very safe for tourists.



NDE (Near Death Experience) or Divine Intervention?

The real incident happened about 30 years ago. Although I only shared it on a few occasions, in my opinion, this strange experience is still very clear. The only thing missing is Logical explanation.

A few years ago, I suddenly found myself telling a story to a group of people Businessman. I finished a short but powerful story that made them wonder. To my surprise, a man eagerly suggested that I have a near-death experience called N.D.E.

I have read and heard of many near-death experiences. In each case, people find that they have left their bodies and entered another realm of life some time before returning to their bodies. Since then, in many cases, their lives have changed a lot. As far as I am concerned, I have not experienced physical departure or any transcendence, but just lost period. As if a small part of that incident was edited from my memory, the “cutting” was placed among the fragments on the bathroom floor.

Let me explain:

I am in my twenties and have not consciously realized any kind of spirituality. Or, perhaps, in fact, I am doing a great job and ignore the things that keep knocking on the door of my closed heart. I must point out that at this stage, it took many years or even more knocks to finally wake me up.

In 1976, while on a business trip, I checked into a very old hotel that is still a high-end Melbourne hotel. The small bathroom includes a bathtub, wash basin and ceramic toilet. The shower head is located above the bathtub, and the plastic curtain slides on a stainless steel rail mounted on the ceiling.

This particular morning, I stood in the bathtub and took a shower. Suddenly a lot of hot water gushes out. When I tried to reach near the hot water nozzle to adjust the temperature, my feet fell off my feet and then fell backward on the side of the bathtub. It seems to happen in slow motion. I instinctively grabbed the curtain to stop the fall. But all I have to do is to pull the fixture completely out of the ceiling. The next few seconds or minutes remain a mystery. I don’t remember going to hit the floor. My next memory is that I was standing in the bathtub looking at the debris on the floor. The shower screen and fixtures lie on the floor together with the broken porcelain toilet. There are no traces on my body.

When my colleague came to pick me up for our first date, I shared my experience and showed him the chaos. He checked if I was okay, smiled, and didn’t think about it again. But i did it I will still do this for many years to come.

Was it a near-death experience? During that wasted time, is it possible that I will leave my body and come back? Or a divine intervention? Or are they the same thing?

Now, thirty years have passed, and with the help of hindsight, and “awakened” all the possibilities and the miracles in it, I will choose the miracle of divine intervention.



Welcome to Broadmore!

It seems that there are endless “bad” customer service cases to share every month, so when a good case comes up, it’s worth celebrating-at least it has the opportunity to show how to do the right thing instead of paying attention to something Do not Do it.

Your room number is 4238…

I just returned from a very important conference in Broadmoor, a beautiful building with a long history in Colorado Springs. In the afternoon, I took a flight in Atlanta, and the flight time with me was around 8:30 pm mountain time, when my time was 10:30 pm.

The front desk clerk was courteous and professional, and handed me the map of the resort, the room key and the folder highlighting room 4238.

She offered to let the bellman help me carry my luggage (no need, thank you), and then pointed me in the direction of the elevator.

knock! Who is there?

You can imagine my worry when I arrived in Room 4238… I found a “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door.

I thought it would be wise to see if anyone was actually in the room before using my key, so, carefully ignoring the sign, I knocked on the door.

My response was a barking dog, and after a minute, the door opened. A lady with a puppy greeted me, confused about who I was and why I knocked on her door (the door with the “Do Not Disturb” sign).

I apologized to her and showed her the folder clearly marked with the room number in the “Your Room” section.

Embarrassingly, I apologized again and then went downstairs to the front desk to figure it out.

Oops, we made a mistake!

It turns out that the front desk clerk suffered a minor attack from dyslexia-my room was not 4238; it was 4328!

As they said in the basketball game, “No injury, no foul”, so I settled in my room without luggage and had some much needed sleep.

However, the next morning, I started to think about this situation, and I was a little worried about it. For example, if there is no “do not disturb” sign on the woman’s door, what will happen? I would have walked in and created a scene, which was the most uncomfortable at best!

So I went to the front desk and asked to see a manager. A few minutes later, Sasha (pronounced “say-sha”) Burke showed up and listened to what happened. What made me very relaxed was that she assured me that my key would not open the door to the first room, because it was a simple shift error, so I was taken there from the beginning.

She apologized for your inconvenience and invited me to contact her directly if necessary during my stay.

Need a snack?

This situation was handled by professionals, so I started doing business without thinking twice.

But when I returned to the room, there was a surprise waiting for me: a bottle of wine and a can of snacks with desserts!

Then, I saw the flashing light on the phone and I pressed the “message” button. The general manager of the hotel, Ann Alba, sent a message, adding her advertisement, letting me know that they had sent a gift, and left her direct phone number just in case.

Therefore, the reason I started to enjoy it was not because of a treat, but (1) because of the way to solve this service restoration opportunity, and (2) because the general manager was aware of the problem and had reached out in person.

But wait… there is more!

The next morning, when I was crossing the property on the road to the main building, I suddenly passed Sasha, who was walking in the opposite direction.

I smiled and said, “Good morning!” and Not lost She beat, “Oh, Mr. Rosenberg, how are you today?” Yes, yes, she remembers my name, although She didn’t know she would meet me then-Not even during the rest of my stay.

And, just in case you thought it was just a blessing, she passed me at the host’s reception later that day and said hello again.

problem? no problem!

Mistakes can happen, especially if there are a lot of “moving parts”, such as large resort hotels.

But the way these mistakes are handled can make a difference between a potential disaster and an avid fan.

In fact, some studies have shown that if the “benchmark” level of customer loyalty is 90%, then when problems occur and are dealt with quickly, effectively and professionally, the loyalty level is actually increase.

I don’t have to worry about anything!

If you think about it carefully, it will be very reasonable. You have some expectations; but when something goes wrong, you will find that the supplier will surpass and surpass it. This provides a certain guarantee that you will be taken care of even if something goes wrong in rare cases.

If you want to know, the next night, after I finished my speech, I was greeted with some handmade chocolates and two small bottles of Grand Marnier in the room.

Definitely exceeded expectations!



I fart in front of my boyfriend, he still loves me

Once you know me, you will find that I am a loud voice. The filter between my brain and tongue kept me unable to pass 75% of the time, but I am satisfied with it. I made a strange comment and moved to the next one almost immediately. I agree with this 90%.

This is four times in my relationship. After being together for three years, I think my boyfriend saw and heard almost everything. The key word here is almost.

Although I am very comfortable with the skin around him, I refuse to admit one thing. Ladies and gentlemen, this is my bowel movement and everything that follows. Yes, I’m talking about poop and farting.

For three years, I have been persistent until I left him at least 10 meters away. For three years, I have always denied that I have done anything to the back end. Oh this? That is just for decoration. If you know what I mean, I sometimes long to discuss my “proud moments”, but I always back down. What if he suddenly thinks of my fart when we are kissing, and he loses his temper? What if my fart chokes him? What if my confession of the natural state of the body changes everything in my relationship?

I was caught in this painful cycle of biting my teeth through uncomfortable after-meal stomach cramps or just relaxing myself, but I always choose the latter.

This suddenly stopped last week.

It was the evening of Monday. We lay in bed and watched TV, 100% comfortable. We were completely relaxed; I was wearing a fluffy hotel nightgown, and he in pajamas. Each of us is doing our own thing, but we keep silent between each other until the most unpredictable thing happens.

I fart


My jaw dropped in surprise, my heartbeat accelerated to 1 million times per second, and my sweat glands drained all the water in my body from my skin. What happened just now? How can I deny it? What did i say? Did we break up?

On the other hand, my boyfriend slowly turned his head to me and smiled. Then he turned his attention to video games.

I… I don’t know what it is. I tried to sugar coat. It doesn’t matter, he reassures me.

Due to shock and entertainment, mainly his response, I started to laugh at myself. He joined, but was back to his game, and I was back to the TV show.

That’s it. The whole situation lasted about 45 seconds, and nothing changed since then. what! The humiliation brought about by the unforeseen series of gas happened suddenly, with zero consequences.

I am proud that I can overcome difficulties without worrying about them. It feels like a new chapter in my romance, the story of the girl who accidentally fart. It feels like I have conquered another fear, like I am getting closer and closer to my boyfriend.

Ladies, this is something. It is okay to tear it every once in a while. Believe me, I had to secretly go to the toilet and turn the faucet to the maximum in order to give off some shit in all my relationships. It’s very tiring, can cause constipation, and is even harmful to the environment (shower stool? You know what I’m talking about). As long as we don’t stain their sheets or forget to rinse them, our men really don’t care what our bottoms do.

You can let it go every once in a while.

But this is what I want to talk about now. I don’t think I’m ready for a complete conversation and defecation system. Maybe this is something I can save after getting married?



Secrets of Film Success

One of the best things I have done recently is to take a working holiday as a volunteer photographer in a charity where I live. The videotape will be a 30-minute documentary about the work of a children’s charity. As a team, we went to several rehabilitation hospitals in several cities in Vietnam.

As a speaker, I have been working hard to improve my storytelling skills. But as a videographer, my role now shifts to the outside world. First identify a story and then immediately capture it into the video. I have started using the video library to create a video blog for my website. I already know and practice some photography skills. But some incidents surprised me and helped me develop professional knowledge.

This is my situation. I went to the hospital with our team of more than 11 interpreters to provide full-day workshops for parents and young children with cerebral palsy. The room is tight. Hot and humid. At the end of the day, the children were tired and crying. Sometimes I have to jump from room to room to capture scenes of children from 9 months to 17 years old. I have always wanted to capture the emotions on the faces of mothers and their children. I also want to introduce every health care professional who volunteers to work with these children.

We will leave our hotel before 7 in the morning, and in most cases have to wait until 5 in the afternoon. In addition to wanting to visit our team in the evening and have dinner with them, I usually do not less than 2 hours of backup in the room, reviewing and indexing the video I collected. But I was involved because a lot of things happened around. I think I have a story to capture and tell. Here are the tips I want to share.

1) Don’t think that you will only take a video with your camera. You may also need to join and become a producer, choreographer and editor-everything from making videos to making videos. In addition, you, as an editor, will enable you to capture the video the way you want, and save valuable time for future editing.

2) Ensure that the battery is sufficiently charged-enough to power the camera for a whole day. Buy the largest battery. I have 2; 1 o’clock in the morning and 1 o’clock in the afternoon. We went out for 12 hours in a few days. Also make sure you have purchased an external battery charger. The camera’s built-in charger does not stand by well. Don’t rely on it when you shoot on a road trip every day. When charging the battery, you will not risk blowing up the camera’s electronic components. One reality is that I don’t have a backup camera. If it breaks, I will be idle.

3) Having a travel backpack, you can easily carry and use it in daily video jumps. I have 2 of them. The main thing is all the video equipment you carry with you. When traveling, you do not want to check in. For your day trip, please use a small backpack with many pockets. You can sling comfortably on your shoulders or back for easy access when shooting.

4) When you back up the video every night and charge the battery, please lengthen the chord for your hotel room. I got this tip from the international travel of my work colleagues, which saved me a lot of time. The hotel we live in usually only has 1 plug, even if all my laptops and video equipment are placed in the whole room of the room, it is easy to reach. If I don’t have such a long power cord, then I will be in trouble.

5) Back up the video to an external drive (if not two) every night. Before deleting from the camera, check them to make sure they were copied correctly. I made 2 backup copies; 1 in the laptop drive and the other in the external USB drive.

6) There is a laptop with a video viewer so you can view the video to ensure that the photos you want to take are not jerky or unfocused. I installed a video previewer on my laptop, so I can quickly watch the video of the day, that is, too much lighting, panning or shaking. Today’s mistakes can be corrected in tomorrow’s shooting.

7) Make sure you have enough spare SD memory cards. Sometimes they may deteriorate or get lost due to their small size. You may also find good content and decide to shoot for a longer time to capture everything.

8) Connect the wrist strap to the camera. If the camera slides out of your hand, you still have 1 chance to prevent the camera from bouncing on the concrete. This saves me several times, especially in hot weather, when the working day exceeds 10 hours and I am tired.

9) There should be some brand marks on the wristband, such as your national flag. Mine was a red TEDx lanyard. I actually started a few conversations with other tourists and eventually exchanged business cards.

10) Wear hiking shorts with lots of pockets. I have SD cards, batteries, notepads, pens, water bottles and all other items in each of my pockets.

11) The tripod is big and stupid. I have a telescopic carbon monopod, which is perfect for getting me into tight places quickly. It can also be adjusted instantly. It is so comfortable to hold and adjust the telescopic legs. When a group of people develop around my theme, it is also very suitable for moving people. Shooting overhead will also increase the dramatic effect. Nothing is more important than going directly to the topic of the story.

12) You may think of a story, but you are ready to follow a Segway story or two stories that may be unveiled before your eyes. You must always pay attention to the surrounding scenes and stories. Turn on the camera and run the microphone to capture a video clip with good sound. These may be blessings in disguise that can change or derive your story. Keep in mind that you may have collected enough good movies for another 2 or 3 stories for future editing and publishing.

13) Always pick up the camera on the day of the filming-even during dinner with the team at night. You never know when the video story will appear in front of you. You want to be able to capture it. During the taxi ride, I got a very deep insight into Vietnamese CP from a Vietnamese interpreter. Such a true plot cannot be repeated.

14) The camera is always visible around the team or subject. Your subjects will become so accustomed to them that you eventually don’t know if you are photographing them. It’s great to capture those candid shots. My goal is for them to work around their parents and children as frankly as possible. Everyone knows that once a camera appears, people will become expressionless, alert and rehearse. You want to capture them as easily, frankly and naturally as possible.

15) Make sure you have a variety of energy bars and snacks in your backpack or pocket, including water. I didn’t. We stopped eating for a few days. You want to stay energetic. Nothing distracts your videotapes more than the pain or desire of hunger.

16) The most important thing is to index all video clips daily in a day that is still fresh in your memory. After the first few days, I started to slip and start to forget where the clips came from. I made an excel sheet on a laptop, indexed by fragment number and briefly described the scene, location and importance, and quickly corrected this problem. I do this in the hotel room every night while charging the battery and making backups. If you know the storyline to follow, you can start marking specific clips to be used in the documentary. This will save you time when you get home. I also find it very helpful to view all the clips every night so that it can be embedded in my mind; I have enough, what I still need.

17) Keep the video clips no longer than 2-3 minutes, or even less than 1 minute. After returning to Canada, I found that searching for five 1-minute clips to find video clips was much faster than searching for one 5-minute clip. This discovery completely surprised me.

18) My main subject, Laverne, reached an agreement with me. Whenever she felt an epiphany about an emotional comment that was about to surface, she would signal me to come as soon as possible and record her monologue. These comments will be scattered throughout the documentary to truly reflect what happened during our three-week mission. By having coffee, drinks or meal time with them, you can help the cameraman quickly understand the subject. In this case, it is easy because Lavern and I have become good friends in the past few years.

Returning to our hotel at the end of the day, we always give a 1-hour report in the dining area, so that each team member has the opportunity to share whatever they want, whether it is about their studio or their true feelings. This is when I used to learn about other video clips that I could shoot the next day. This is also a good way to build teams and share experiences in remote countries.

You have it; my tip for aspiring photographers. I am already looking forward to the next video tour and I will further improve the skills I mentioned above. Happy video diary!



Factors to consider when looking for a safe airport parking space

Before going on vacation or business trip, many people choose to drive to the airport. If you are away for a few days or even months, finding a safe parking space for your car will give you priceless peace of mind. Most airports offer multiple parking options, so choosing the right parking option is crucial.

Here are some tips to help you choose the best and most convenient parking option.

Professional parking lot

When parking, you can choose between parking on the roadside and parking in a secure parking lot. Don’t park on the street and gamble. You risk a stolen car. Always seek a properly managed parking service. Check the security measures provided to make sure it meets your requirements. Look at various aspects such as surveillance, frequency of patrols, presence of fences, etc.


Ensure that the parking lot is well lit and provide a safe passage for pedestrians. Darker areas increase the risk of theft and damage. If the parking lot is well-lit and well planned, it usually means that they also attach great importance to safety. These days, most parking facilities have assigned the necessary importance to providing safe, traveler-friendly facilities.

Distance to terminal

Some parking lots are far away from the terminal, requiring you to either walk a long distance with your luggage or take a shuttle bus for a long journey. Even parking facilities near the terminal may require you to take a bus. Before choosing parking facilities, please remember to pay attention to not far from the dock. Also consider the price. Generally, the closer the parking lot, the higher the charge. In addition, if necessary, remember to check if there are people with walking difficulties or people in wheelchairs that can easily use the shuttle service.


Before you arrive at the airport, remember to reserve a slot for your car. This guarantees you a parking space and saves money at the same time. In addition, you don’t have to wait for a long time and you can also save time. Most parking services allow you to reserve a parking space through their website or over the phone. Remember to bring all the booking details you may need, such as a code number or verification text message.

Parking at the hotel

There are hotels near most airports, some of which provide secure parking spaces for residents. Some hotels also offer discounts for guests staying here, such as free breakfast. If your flight is early in the morning, you can choose to stay overnight in the hotel, which will make your journey easy. Since these hotels usually operate well, your car will also be safe. This option is more convenient if the hotel provides free shuttle service to and from the pier.

By keeping these points in mind, you can get rid of any pressure on car safety during a pleasant journey.

East Java and Mount Bromo Tour in Indonesia

I want to talk about my experience of going to East Java, especially Bromo, when I was still in middle school 12 years ago. I went with my parents, uncle, friends and driver. Our family started a trip from Bogor to Tegal, Central Java. We stayed in the hotel for one night.

The next day, we started our journey from Tegal to Surabaya in East Java. We stayed at Jl’s Garden Hotel for one night. Pemuda Surabaya. The next day, we ended this trip. We chose the route from Surabaya, Sidoarjo, Pasuruan, and then stopped in Gending, a small town about 12 kilometers east of Probolinggo, to meet an old friend.

In the afternoon, we reached Mount Bromo via Probolinggo. When we reached Probolinggo, our car turned south. During the journey, we passed through the Jati Forest and fresh air. Finally we came to the hotel. Due to the darkness, we cannot see the beautiful scenery of the hotel at this moment. The weather turns cold and we have to wear thick clothes. We had dinner at a small restaurant near the hotel. After dinner, we slept.

When I was still asleep, at two in the morning, my parents woke me up. I don’t know what happened and the earthquake happened. An interesting thing happened, my friend brushed his teeth when he was awakened. He thought we wanted to start looking at the scenery. In fact it was just an earthquake. After that, we fell asleep again.

At 4 o’clock in the morning, the hotel attendant asked us to get up and prepare to go to Pananjakan by jeep, which is an important place to see the beautiful scenery of Mount Bromo, Batok and Semeru.

time flies. It is a pity that due to the cloudy sky, we cannot see the rising sun. We are still lucky because the weather is good and we can see the beautiful scenery. These three mountains are located in the national park. Semeru Mountain is the highest mountain in Java. My father took photos of the beautiful scenery of the national park.

When it was clear, we returned to the hotel. From the hotel, we rode through the sea sand leading to the crater. We climbed the stairs to the top of the mountain. At the top, we can clearly see that the crater of Mount Bromo is still smoky.

After that, we returned to the hotel and the trip to the top of the mountain was over. After that, we went to Malang, a small town in the cold south of Surabaya. After visiting the leisure park near Malang, we rested at the hotel. The next day, we returned to Bogor and ended our journey to East Java.

Thank you.
