BeepBeep Nation and Your Dynamic Beep Network of Helpers

Soon to launch is BeepBeep Nation — an app that will offer opportunities for people to request whatever kind of help and others to respond to them. You can get a ride home, read restaurant recommendations, even have a tour guide with just one beep. But what’s underneath this seemingly common service of BeepBeep Nation is a greater mission.

It aims to make the world a better place by fostering a culture of kindness and encouraging face-to-face interaction. By helping others, you get to broaden your circle of peers, build a stronger business network, or even just have nonchalant but interesting conversations every now and then.

As a true social app, BeepBeep Nation requires both requestors and helpers to meet in person when resolving a problem.  Social media has inadvertently made human relationships take a colder, digital turn. Even though it still very much utilizes digital technology, the BeepBeep Nation app harnesses that in order to promote more profound social interactions again. But how exactly does it do that?

Of course, as a social app, the BeepBeep Nation app also has its own way of building an individual’s network for him. However, unlike Facebook or Twitter, it does not ask you to make people your “friends” or “followers.” What it does is provide you with a bigger pool of potential requestors and helpers (i.e. potential peers and business contacts) through its very own Dynamic Beep Network of Helpers (DBN). By not offering the same “friends,” “followers,” or “connections” mechanics, it actually provides its users a more dynamic alternative.

Everyone — yes, everyone! — within a 1-5 mile radius of wherever you are is included in your network. All people need to do is install the BeepBeep Nation app on their smartphones, and they’re good to go. No need for “friend” or “follower” requests. Everyone is that easy to reach.

Another interesting thing about your Dynamic Beep Network Of Helpers (DBN) is that it can be composed of different people every time. Say you are travelling from your hometown of Vancouver to attend a conference in Toronto. Your DBN will change so that you have a different pool of potential acquaintances in Toronto from your DBN in Vancouver. Of course, so that people nearby can help you with your needs or you can help people nearby with theirs, the BeepBeep Nation app will connect you to people in the location you yourself specify at any given time. Amazing.

What’s even more amazing is this implication: a constantly changing DBN means having an endless number of opportunities to get help and give help. Having a previously established or curated network of “friends” and “followers” could set your limits — not just with the help you might acquire, but also the potential peers you may still want to get to know. For instance, you only look for people you want to meet in your own circles; you then scan their profiles if you have mutuals. But your DBN always provides you with new possibilities.

After all, BeepBeep Nation’s mission to make the world a better place starts with an individual helping another person out and getting to know him face-to-face. Its feature of giving users a Dynamic Beep Network Of Helpers (DBN) sincerely embodies that mission. If you’re interested in participating and creating a world of kindness, soon to launch is the BeepBeep Nation app. Its fuel, the EMINENT (EMN) token, is already available for sale.

The Future of Selfies: Wefies and Beepies!

Almost everyone in the world probably knows what selfies are. In the period between 2015 to 2016, around 24 billion selfies have been posted on the Internet, according to Google’s servers. 24 billion! Sounds unbelievable, right? Even though we get to see our friends’ faces each day on social media — as they cook breakfast, walk their dog, sip a latte, try their hand at yoga, host a baby shower, dress up for a fancy date, dress in sweaters and a comfy hoodie, go to the bathroom, stay in bed, and every other human thing to do, really —  I’m sure it’s still an astounding fact.

The activity of taking a selfie sometimes strikes other people who dislike it as vain and unnecessary. However, history says it has long been a human fascination to look at and have oneself immortalized. Supposedly, the first photographic self-portrait ever has been taken in the 19th century by a chemist and photography enthusiast named Robert Cornelius. And long before that, hundreds and hundreds of people have already had themselves painted by artists or even by themselves throughout the centuries. Just visit an art museum, and you’ll quickly realize we are not so different from many generations before us.

Of course, the function of selfies has already evolved, especially now that we live in the digital era. Some people take selfies so that they can keep their friends updated, maybe about a significant event in their lives or just any usual day, like one that says “good morning” in the caption. Some do it to boost their confidence, especially as they have control over how they appear in the image that they’re going to show the world; they can make sure they look good so that they can feel good. Others do it to remember a moment with their family or friends, whether they’re just hanging out on a regular Saturday afternoon or meeting up for the first time in five years.

There are many reasons to take selfies, but I guess one thing that’s common among them is that they all have to do with memories. As humans, we have an urge to preserve our memories so that we can look back on them any time we want. We want a memory of that time we looked so poised, graceful and ready to take on the world with a little black dress. We want a memory of that time we finished a great hike. We want a memory of that time we made funny faces with our cute nephews. We already know this as we make our online presence felt. But I wonder, is this all there is to selfies? What other purpose could it have?

BeepBeep Nation is an app that seeks to create a more meaningful world by enhancing face-to-face human interaction, albeit facilitating it digitally. It provides a platform for people who need help to seek it among others and then other people to reach out and offer a hand. Aside from enabling people to exercise kindness, it also encourages them to broaden their network of peers and share their lives with more people.

Amazingly, the BeepBeep Nation app has an answer to my question about the future of selfies: wefies and Beepies. The term “wefie” has already been used to refer to a selfie taken with a group of people. Meanwhile, a Beepie is a group picture taken through the BeepBeep Nation app between people who request for help (requestors) and people who provided the help (helpers) during their friendly meetup. By simply clicking on the camera icon in the app, you can easily initiate the process of taking a Beepie with your requestor or helper.

Through the Beepie, BeepBeep Nation redefines what selfies could be in the world of kindness that it seeks to create.

Not only can this feature ensure your personal safety when meeting someone unfamiliar through the app and thus build trust in the BeepBeep Nation community, it can also serve the usual functions of a selfie, but better. Because what greater moment to preserve in our memories than when we choose to help others and share our kindness with them? We never know, we might end up creating a good and lasting friendship with our requestor or helper, and your Beepie will always be a significant first in your relationship. Exciting, I know.

If you’re ready to take on the challenge of sharing your kindness, making the world a better place, and creating exciting friendships (plus taking fantastic selfies with your new friends!), the BeepBeep Nation app is set to launch soon. Its fuel, the EMINENT token, is now available for sale! To get started on BeepBeep Nation, make sure to check it out now.

How To Make The Most Out Of Your Weekend

 

For work-a-holics like myself, scrambling to make a weekend worthwhile is more than just a challenge. With so much on my mind, I don’t often get to experience them to their fullest potential. But with 52 weekends in a year and the occasional extra day, there are ways to make each of them rewarding.

Plan ahead. Not every weekend requires stringent planning, but having an idea of what you want to achieve is key. Are you looking to be productive? Do you fancy a road trip? Jot it down! If you’re mostly scatter-brained, having a weekend journal may be a new investment to consider. But leave enough room for spontaneity — you never know what you might run into. Don’t overcomplicate your itinerary.

If work is a major presence in your daily life, you may want to take a few days off to do something social. Making the effort to see friends is almost always gratifying, both for yourself and for them. If you set up a potluck, you’ll have the added bonus of free food.

Chances are, you’ll also need alone time. Relax but don’t forget to exerciseSpoil yourself — there’s no shame in doing so every once in a while. Try out a brand new spa treatment or take yourself out on a date to your favorite restaurant. Know that while it may be exciting to spend your time with a significant other, “me moments” are also cherished ones. And though “stay-cations” may be unwinding, keep yourself active. A simple jog will do the trick.

If you’re adventurous, now would be the time to explore the outdoors. This isn’t an every-weekend activity, so pick a date that is perfect for being outside. Being away from the city provides a great breath of fresh air. Even without the extreme sports, an unfamiliar and scenic atmosphere will undoubtedly leave you energized.

Engaging in a lot of activities may leave a bit to do at home, but don’t stress too much over chores. This is your time to feel like a king or queen. Sunday is perhaps a good time to plan your week. Think about what you have to do and the best times to complete certain tasks. It may bring about the Sunday-to-Monday blues, but try to avoid this.

There are a number of ways to make your Sunday night equally as enjoyable as the rest of the weekend. Discover something new while in the comfort of your home. Maybe you’ve bookmarked a new Netflix show that you haven’t quite gotten around to seeing yet? Or you can take the time to read a book that challenges you. It could be that weekends are the perfect time to learn a new language. Whatever the case, always make room to grow.

Most importantly, avoid routine. Your week is pretty much a regimen, so always aim to do something just a little bit different. While it’s perfectly acceptable to do things you already love and enjoy, doing the same old thing can get pretty boring. Treat your mind and body to something fresh.

Our weekends aren’t always going to be perfect. But we can make them more enjoyable and fulfilling.
