iPhone 6S Plus vs iPhone 5Shttp://www.professionalintern.com/iphone-6s-plus-vs-iphone-5s http://www.professionalintern.com/iphone-6s-plus-vs-iphone-5s#comments Thu, 07 Jan 2016 11:18:54 +0000 http://www.professionalintern.com/?p=3590 The iPhone 6S Plus created quite a fuss when it was launched in 2015 in September. The flagship from Apple had a large number of prebooking orders and sold in large numbers. If this scenario sounds similar to you, it is because it is the story with every Apple smartphone as was for the iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5S may seem two years old now but it is still a very popular and worthy smartphone. If you own an iPhone 5S, Then you should sell iPhone 5S and purchase 6S Plus because it offers some of the great specifications mentioned below.

iPhone 5s

So if you’ve decided to get yourself an Apple phone but cant decide between the iPhone 6S Plus and the iPhone 5S, you’ve come to the right place. So lets compare the iPhone 6S Plus and the iPhone 5S.

Both the devices feature LED backlit IPS LCD displays with difference in size and resolution. While the 6S Plus features a 5.5 inch display with a full HD resolution resulting in 401 ppi, the 5S comes with a 4 inch screen and a resolution of 640 X 1136 pixels churning out 326 ppi. While the 6S Plus features an upgraded 12 MP camera on the back and a 5 MP snapper on the front, the 5S has an 8 MP unit and a 1.2 MP camera unit on the back and the front respectively. Both the rear cameras have dual tone LED flash but only the 6S Plus’s camera is 4K video recording capable.

iPhone 6S Plus-rose-gold

Going under the hood, you’ll find similarities between the two devices. The 6S Plus is powered by the Apple A9 chipset clocked at 1.83 GHz paired with 2 GB of RAM while the 5S is powered by the A7 chipset clocked at 1.3 GHz and 1 GB of RAM. Both the devices feature non user removable batteries but they vary very much in capacity. The 6S Plus features a 2750 mAh powerhouse while the 5S is backed by a much smaller 1560 mAh. Both the devices also feature non-expandable storage but offer a wide variety of options to choose from.

The 6S Plus offers the choice of a 16, 64 or a 128 GB storage variant while the 5S limits the options to 16, 32 and 64 GB. Both the smartphones measure almost equal in thickness with the 5S measuring a little thicker at 7.6 mm while the 6S Plus measures 7.3 mm. However, the 5S wins the battle when it comes to weight at 112 g while the 6S Plus weighs in a heavy 192g.

iPad Pro vs. MacBook 2015: Spec Comparisonhttp://www.professionalintern.com/ipad-pro-vs-macbook-2015-spec-comparison http://www.professionalintern.com/ipad-pro-vs-macbook-2015-spec-comparison#comments Thu, 17 Dec 2015 18:34:13 +0000 http://www.professionalintern.com/?p=3583 With the new iPad Pro in the market, many people have been thinking of this question: Should i sell my MacBook and get the iPad Pro? Will it be a suitable replacement for my current Macbook?

If the same question has popped up in your mind too, you have come to the right place as today we are doing a feature and spec comparison between the iPad Pro and the MacBook 2015.

iPad Pro

Starting with the first thing that we look when we hold a device in our hand, the design both the devices feature the same design that Apple has been using for the the tablet and the laptop ctaegories since a long time. Both the devices are housed inside high grade aluminium bodies and have the same color options available.

Talking about mobility, the iPad Pro clearly has the edge here. Tablets are definitely more mobile than their laptop counterparts and the iPad Pro also weighs about 23% less the MacBook 2015 which weighs in at a decent 920 grams. Now the Macbook has the added advantage of being a fully fledged laptop but with the new Keyboard by Apple for iPad Pro, the tbalet suffices very well in most cases.

MacBook 2015

Moving on, another factor you must consider in choosing between the iPad Pro and the MacBook is to check out the list of tasks you will be performing on the device. People who are used to working on a desktop and are familiar with the MacOS will take some time in getting used to the iPad Pro but once youre there, you can perform almost every task on the iPad Pro.

One feature that works greatly in the favour of the iPad pro is the new Apple Pencil. Fot those of you who dont know about the Apple Pencil, it is the all new stylus that works extensively with the iPad Pro. This will prove to be a big boon to all the people who work with graphic intensive softwares like Photoshop and video editing softwares. Also, the Apple keyboard makes the iPad Pro versatile but at the same time the keyboard doesnt allow you to change viewing angles.

Choosing between iPad Pro can be quite a difficult task. So do consider all these factors before choosing between the two.

When You Work At a Kid’s Camp, You’re More Than a Counselorhttp://www.professionalintern.com/when-you-work-at-a-kids-camp-youre-more-than-a-counselor http://www.professionalintern.com/when-you-work-at-a-kids-camp-youre-more-than-a-counselor#comments Wed, 18 Nov 2015 16:07:15 +0000 http://www.professionalintern.com/?p=3571 Working at a summer camp is a great job – lots of sun, plenty of fresh air, and it’s a fun way to make some much-needed cash before the school year begins. But when I think back to my own formative years and recall the numerous counselors that I had from one camp to the next, I find it amazing how much of an impact those people made on my life – even twenty years later.

It’s particularly surprising when I take into account all the great experiences I had participating in activities like archery, horseback riding, swimming, and hiking and arrive at the conclusion that when it comes to summer camp what stands out more than anything else are the nights around the fire listening to my counsellor recount his own experiences growing up.

My point is this: People may not realize it, but being a camp counselor is so much more than someone who keeps an eye on you during the dog days of summer – they’re the people that are in the right place at the right time to help mold you into the person you will become.

Camps Wouldn’t Be What They Are Without Good People Staffing Them

Truth be told, camps wouldn’t be around if it weren’t for the dedicated group of individuals staffing them each and every summer.

On paper, camp counselors are responsible for making sure you’re getting the most out of your time away from home. They make sure you get to the mess hall on time for daily meals, they make sure you don’t wander off alone into the woods, and they see to it that when it’s lights out, you’re in your bunk. They’ll even be a shoulder to cry on if you’re feeling homesick.

kids-30477_640

But to many kids, their counsellor arguably fills more roles than anyone else in their young life – sure, counselors are in a position of authority, but they are also role models, mentors, friends, teachers, and guides.

If the idea of applying to become a counselor at a camp this summer has previously entered your mind, don’t let these extra responsibilities intimidate you – in fact, you being a camp counselor just might be one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever have.

What Camps Are Looking For

Regardless of whether or not you’re applying to a drama camp or an overnight camp, space camp or math camp, there are some universal qualities that you must possess in order to be the kind of counselor mentioned in the previous section.

– Be of exemplary character

– Posses tons of energy (you’re no good to anyone if you can’t keep up)

– Have a desire to have fun

– Be willing to teach

– Have comforting demeanor

– Be a leader

– Posses the ability to solve problems within groups

If you’ve got these traits and more, well done – you’re going to be someone that many youthful faces will be looking up to. For those of you who’ve never really had a job before, having a group of people look to you as a leader may be an entirely new experience; which kinda brings me to another thing I’d like to mention about being a camp counselor.

You’re Going to Learn Just as Much From Them as They Will From You

It might be hard to believe, but a summer job working in a camp will benefit you in more ways than receiving a paycheck. First jobs are typically an opportunity to learn what some of your strengths are – but as a counsellor, you’re thrust into a position where your actions can have a big impact on those around you, and that’s a pretty big deal.

If you work retail, you might learn that you have a talent for sales; if you work in a factory you might develop a skill for quality assurance. Both are fine skills to have and could play a role in your future. As a counselor, the skills you learn are can be applied to many jobs across many industries.

Among other qualities, you’ll learn time management, conflict resolution, decision-making, event planning – the list is long and the applications diverse. At the end of the day, there may be many opportunities for you to pursue this summer, just remember that any job can boost your finances but not all will allow you to develop the kinds of skills you’ll be able to leverage for years to come. On top of that, you just might make some kid’s summer the best they’ve ever had, and that’s a pretty cool bonus.

iPhone 6S vs Moto X Pure Editionhttp://www.professionalintern.com/iphone-6s-vs-moto-x-pure-edition http://www.professionalintern.com/iphone-6s-vs-moto-x-pure-edition#comments Wed, 18 Nov 2015 16:05:07 +0000 http://www.professionalintern.com/?p=3575 Just a few weeks have passed by since the manic of iPhone 6S, as there had been a lot of hype about the phone and the new set of features it was eco texted to bring on the table. Also a new competitor in the market is the Motorola’s Moto X Pure Edition. Though the price segments of both the devices are different, but still let us have a look that which of them is really worth it, neglecting that iPhone would cost way too more than the device. Will the Moto X Pure instead of being too cheap as compared to the iPhone gold up the competition?

6s plus vs motox

Build and the Display

Let us talk numbers first. The iPhone is 178 mm long, 78 mm wide and about 7.3 mm thick. On the other hand the Moto X is about 154 mm long, 76 mm wide and 11.1 mm thick. The iPhone weighs about 192g and the Moto Z weighs about 179g. Both of the devices are aluminum built, but the rear of the iPhone is aluminum while that of Moto X Pure is leather. But is is again highly customizable, ally ganja to the Moto maker. iPhone has a display resolution of about 1920×1080 pixels, giving it a pixel density of about 401ppi whereas the Moto X Pure has a display resolution of about 2560X1440 pixels, giving it a pixel density of about 520 ppi. So if you go by build the iPhone has an edge, but if you go by display the Moto Z Pure clearly is the winner.

Storage

A lot has to do with the storage of the device these days. What will you do with all that processing power and camera options, if you run out of memory every now and then. the iPhone comes with storage options 16, 64 and 128 GB. The Moto X Pure comes with options of about 16, 32 and 64 GB.  But nothing that the Moto X has an expandable storage via Micro SD which proves to be much cheaper, so Moto X would play along better here.

Hardware and Camera

Starting with the processor the iPhone rocks a Apple A9 64 bit dual core clocked at about 1.8 GHz while the Moto X features a Snapdragon 808 64 bit hexa core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz. The iPhone has a 2 gigs of RAM while the Moto X has about 3 gigs of it. The camera on the iPhone has a 12 Megapixel rear camera while that on Moto X is a 21 megapixel.  So in this segment again the Moto Z Pure Edition emerged out on top.

Battery and Other Features

Batter on the iPhone is a 2750 mAh while that on the Moto X Pure is a 3000 mAh. Also note that the Moto X supports the fast charging feature while the iPhone doesn’t. Also the iPhone does have a fingerprint sensor while the Moto doesn’t, so this again makes it a sort of tie.

In the end it all comes to the preference and you daily usage.  Also note that we did not take into consideration the different operating systems. These devices run on, and it makes a really strong impact on their performances. However on the paper, we have Moto X Pure outperform the new iPhone totally. So my question to the ape fans out there is, will you sell your iPhone for the Moto X Pure Edition? Let us know in the comment section below.

However, now, both these Smartphone manufacturers are currently the top of the line Android device manufacturers, and their respective latest Android Smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Motorola Moto X Style are going against each other in the market.

If you want to sell your cell phone and pick any of these latest trending Android Smartphones, then today we are here to help you make a firm choice between the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Motorola Moto X Style.

The device is 11.1 mm thick, 76 mm wide, 154 mm tall and weighs 179 grams.

Hardware:

Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Moto X Style features a 5.7 inch QHD display with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. However, the TFT display on the Moto X Style has a PPI 0f 520, whereas the Super AMOLED display featured on the Galaxy Note 5 has 518 PPI.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 comes with either 32 or 64 GB of internal storage space with no scope for storage expansion. However, the device features wireless charging, has a fingerprint sensor and also a heart rate monitor. The pricing of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is around $700.

Whereas, the Moto X play is expected to be priced at around $400 and lacks goodies like wireless charging, fingerprint sensor and heart rate monitor. The devices comes with either 16, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage space, and thankfully there is a MicroSD card slot for additional storage expansion.

Final Words:

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Motorola Moto X Style, may be two devices priced and concentrated at two different categories, but considering what these devices are capable of, it is pretty much clear that both these devices will be having a tough competition with each other.

All New MacBook vs MacBook Pro with Retina Displayhttp://www.professionalintern.com/all-new-macbook-vs-macbook-pro-with-retina-display http://www.professionalintern.com/all-new-macbook-vs-macbook-pro-with-retina-display#comments Tue, 15 Sep 2015 19:03:20 +0000 http://www.professionalintern.com/?p=3545 If you are out there to get yourself a powerful Apple laptop work machine, then you currently have two great options, namely the All New MacBook and the MacBook Pro with retina display. However, if you are confused between the slim and sexy looks of the All New MacBook and the power of the MacBook Pro with Retina display, then today we are here to help you out in picking the best laptop that will suit your needs the most.

all-new-macbook-vs-macbook-pro-with-retina-display

If you are basically looking to buy a beast of a machine after you sell your MacBook, then there is no competition here. The MacBook Pro with Retina Display wins here. Even the basic entry level model of the MacBook Pro with Retina Display performs about 50 percent snappier than the all new MacBook. Thats basically because of the Core i5 processor from Intel, that powers the MacBook Pro with Retina Display, compared to the Intel Core M processor that’s been put inside the All New MacBook.

However, this does not at all mean that the all new MacBook is not powerful enough to handle your day to day tasks. After all, specifications is not all that matters. The all new MacBook can comfortably run even heavier applications like the latest Adobe Photoshop without any hiccups, However, if you like to tweak your machine a lot, in terms of software, like running a virtual Windows machine on your Mac and so on, then you should not be expecting smooth performance, as the all new MacBook was not built to be a working power house. Therefore, if your usage requirement is not too massive, then the all new MacBook should also impress you.

macbook-vs-macbook-pro-with-retina-display

Technically, why most of the people prefer the all new MacBook than other powerful laptops which fall in the same price category as the all new MacBook is because, the all new Macbook was made largely to impress buyers by its looks, not its performance. And there is no doubt that the sleek, slim and stylish look of the all new MacBook 2015 will steal some eyes. When compared to the MacBook Pro with Retina Display, the all new MacBook is 42% lighter and 27% thinner as well. And to accomplish this thin, sleek and stylish design, Apple did have to make a lot of compromises. Which includes the fanless design, redesigned keyboard, the redesigned TouchPad etc., which may not impress buyers who want to get the best in terms of performance and features for what they pay.

There is no doubt that these two MacBook models are the best Apple has to offer currently. However, the fact is that these two are targeted towards two different segment of buyers. If looks, comfort and portability is what matters to you, then the All New MacBook is the best in the market, and if you want the best bang for your buck in terms of performance, then the MacBook Pro with Retina Display is what you need to go for.

Boost Your Movie Effects Career by Joining the I.A.T.S.E.http://www.professionalintern.com/boost-your-movie-effects-career-by-joining-the-i-a-t-s-e http://www.professionalintern.com/boost-your-movie-effects-career-by-joining-the-i-a-t-s-e#comments Fri, 04 Sep 2015 07:17:31 +0000 http://www.professionalintern.com/?p=3538 Very few of us are fortunate enough to ever catch a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes magic that occurs day in and day out within the entertainment industry. While there is little doubt in anyone’s mind that there are amazing things to behold just behind the cascading curtain that would render a great many of us completely gobsmacked, one has to remember that the film, television, and stage production industries are more than just the vessels that give physical form to the imaginings of the world’s most fertile and creative minds – they are industries that employ hundreds of thousands of individuals from all over the globe.

With so many moving parts and such demanding production schedules, it’s doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to assign a certain level of physical danger to these industries – and even more so to the volatility and uncertainty of employment within them. For these reasons, the I.A.T.S.E. exists – to protect the interests of the tradespeople that deliver the kind of entertainment that many of us simply cannot live without.

What is the I.A.T.S.E.?

Like any labor union, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (I.A.T.S.E.) was founded to protect the rights of workers in the theatre industry. Formed in 1893 by stagehands from 11 cities, their primary goal at that time was to create a supportive network that would ensure its members were paid fairly and were able to work in relative safety. While the I.A.T.S.E. was founded to protect these very fundamental principles, it has evolved into an organization that not only holds these principles in the highest esteem, but also seeks to grow the medium and the supporting industries of the performance arts.

Why Join the I.A.T.S.E.?

Whether you’re fresh out of makeup school or a veteran skilled craftsman, it pays to be a member of an organization that is looking out for your best interests. But in case you needed a little bit more convincing, here are a few of the top reasons that makeup artists, technicians, and stage employees become members:

  • The I.A.T.S.E. represents entertainment workers. Yes, we’ve mentioned this already. But here are just a few things that the I.A.T.S.E. have won for its members: weekend turnaround, meal penalties, travel allowances, medical and dental benefits, and Registered Retirement Savings Plans.
  • Members earn higher rates. Members who find themselves employed on a union contracted production can expect to take home up to 50% more than those working on a non-union film or television production.
  • The I.A.T.S.E helps to maintain safe working conditions. The I.A.T.S.E. offers numerous courses to help its members identify dangers and hazards in the workplace. They also strive to educate their members on what rights they do have as workers regardless of jurisdiction.

career-451281_640

How Do I Join the I.A.T.S.E.?

If you’re looking to join the rank and file of the I.A.T.S.E., your journey will begin on their site. Before applying for membership however, you’ll need first identify which segment of the industry your trade falls under and apply for a permit status. The I.A.T.S.E. conveniently lists out the mandatory as well as recommended requirements that each prospective candidate should possess. For instance, someone specializing in special effects makeup is required to be skilled in the following (all of which can be learned through any number of professional makeup courses):

Additionally, the site also lists the required kits prospective candidates are also required to have. While it may seem daunting, such stringent requirements ensure that each member is able to perform at the highest level.

The next step is to submit your application. If approved, you may be invited to attend a mandatory orientation workshop – which covers things like the protocol of working on a set, health and safety training, and other basic industry principles that anyone working on screen or off can benefit from.

How Will the I.A.T.S.E. Boost Your Movie Effects Career?

Like any skilled professional, your creativity, your talent, and your vision are your most valuable commodities. That being said, being part of an organization like the I.A.T.S.E. means that you won’t need to rely solely on your artistic prowess to command a more than competitive rate. Associations aside, the I.A.T.S.E. offers training opportunities to increase your skillset. While the addition of additional skills make you as an individual a more appealing hire, consider what it does for bringing productions to your city.

Toronto, for example, boasts over 2,200 members in the I.A.T.S.E. The city (also referred to as “Hollywood North”) already has a reputation for churning out top tiered talent in all facets of the entertainment industry – but having so many of them being part of the I.A.T.S.E. makes the city that much more enticing to potential productions. More productions mean more opportunities for you to get hired and make your mark.

Are Cab Services Booked Online Via Apps Like Uber, Ola Safe?http://www.professionalintern.com/are-cab-services-booked-online-via-apps-like-uber-ola-safe http://www.professionalintern.com/are-cab-services-booked-online-via-apps-like-uber-ola-safe#comments Sat, 25 Jul 2015 09:20:33 +0000 http://www.professionalintern.com/?p=3529 In most of the populated countries out there, where roads are always busy 24×7. How could it not be? Because nowadays, each member of a family own a separate car, and in a populated country like the US, it results in a lot of cars being pushed out into the road everyday.

Of course it has environmental impacts. But one other major impact because of the huge number of vehicles out there, is time. We spend a lot of time daily getting stuffed in road blocks while going and coming back from offices, schools etc., and if there are any kind of road work, accidents or vehicle complaints in the road, the time we spend on road extends.

Nowadays, many people are feeling fed up of the rush that they have to face almost all the time on the roads, and instead have chosen to hire private taxi services for themselves to go places. Of course hiring a private taxi means it will cost you money, however, you could get rid of the boredom and tiredness of being stuck mid road, and maybe save up some time as well.

But why don’t people choose public transportation options like transits, buses etc., for travelling, even though they are cheaper?

Its because private taxi’s tends to be faster, safer and will be more comfortable as well. Quite worth for the price you pay. Moreover, you can also free yourself from any kind of threats or harms that you may come across while in a public transport, by hiring a private taxi.

From the last few years though, we are seeing a huge increase in taxi services like UBER, which basically provides taxi services that are quite cheaper than normal taxi’s yet offer better customer satisfaction as well. And since such services have come into existence, many people have stopped using even their own cars and started availing taxi services from such providers.

How much convenient can taxi services be, than being able request for a driver from within your Smartphone or Laptop, have them arrive at your doorstep within the quickest time possible, travel in the most luxurious ways possible and yet get charged cheaper than other taxi’s?

Understanding the potential of new taxi services, many investors have been lately investing on local and international taxi service companies, which in turn helps the companies to hire more drivers at cheaper rates and even bring better and more luxurious vehicles into the taxi service, so as to lure in more customers every day.

Of course we have seen some people who hire such taxi being verbally harassed and physically abused by drivers. But as these companies value customer satisfaction over profit, they hear and take every customer response and complaint seriously, and if the company finds any non explainable mistakes from a driver, they fire them immediately. As such companies cannot afford to lose their reputation on incidents.

Therefore, if you ever have been reluctant in hiring a taxi service for yourself even though it might be a better option for you than driving, then it is best that you make avail of such popular taxi services which can offer you a comfortable and safe taxi journey without actually emptying your wallet.
