5 Apps & Tools for Efficient Remote Work

5 Apps & Tools for Efficient Remote Work


As Internet connections speed up, and the disdain for commuting gets greater, the desire to work remotely from home becomes more desirable. Remote working is great — everyone here at MakeUseOf are remote workers, and we’re all happy campers. But in order to become as efficient as possible, you need to have the right work tools behind you.
Tools such as jobs boards and LinkedIn can help you find a job, but here are 5 tools you can use to make sure you do the best job possible.

TransparentBusiness


TransparentBusiness is a web app which gives remote teams an easy way to maintain an overview of their colleagues and what they are working on. This includes the number of hours each employee is working, their projects, their clients, invoices, reports and much more.
If your business is 5 users or less, then TransparentBusiness is free of charge. When it starts going from 6 users and up, the paid option is $39 per user per month. So don’t hire anymore than 5 employees and you have a cracking service on your hands.

Harvest


Continuing the theme of time tracking, Harvest enables workers to keep a record of their work hours, and submit timesheets to the company. You can start and stop timers for each project, and each employee will receive an automated reminder to turn in their timesheet in time to get paid.
You can export those hours to create client invoices, and also create reports showing billable, non-billable, employee or contractor hours. As a nice touch, you can then export your reports to CSV, Excel, Google Drive and more.
Harvest is free for one user who has 4 or less clients. After that, you get a 30 day free trial, and then $12 a month for up to 3 users. The paid levels go up from there.

Teamgum


TeamGum is a browser extension (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera), which advertises itself as “the quickest and easiest way to share anything on the web with your team”. With your team in the sidebar, you can have discussions, and drag and drop images and files. There’s no need to switch tabs to communicate — everything stays on the same page.
Up to 10 members is free of charge. After that, paid plans start at $30 a month, with some extra features thrown in.

DocSecrets


When working with a rem0te team, using Google Docs is a great way to work on documents together, as well as send documents which will need regular edits done. But security can be paramount if you are working on something sensitive to the company. DocSecrets can help in this regard.
After creating a passphrase to encrypt and unencrypt documents, you can then highlight text which can be hidden, much like redacted documents. Only the passphrase will be able to unlock the redactions.
DocSecrets is a free add-on from Google Docs themselves. This page explains how to set it up.

Hoffice


If you’re a nomad traveller out on the road, then you will have worked in a variety of places — cafes, trains, hostels, the beach…but what about a complete stranger’s home? That is the concept behind Hoffice, which aims to bring together someone who is looking for a free workspace with homeowners willing to throw open their doors. Yes, that’s right, I said free. Just register and see what’s available.
If you are working remotely, what are your favourite tools? Any unique ones that deserve some publicity?

Woman Arrested After Attempting To Bite The Penis Off Of Sleeping Boyfriend · February 22, 2015 14 0 sleeping There are crimes of passion that are somewhat understandable because they come in the heat of the moment between two people who at one time had amorous feelings towards one another. Then there is deliberately waiting until your partner falls asleep and trying to gnaw off their genitals like a sadistic barbarian. After a night of drinking on Thursday, Amber Ellis and her boyfriend got into a fight about “how needy she had become.” Once they returned to their apartment the boyfriend decided he had done enough bickering and retired for the evening by sleeping on the couch. Amber stormed into the bedroom and slammed the door. However the infuriated girlfriend decided that she still had a bone to pick with him. She later came out and attempted to bite off her boyfriend’s penis. The victim told police he fought Ellis off but she hit him in the head with a laptop computer. Wow! Insult to chode injury. You know he was drunk and groggy so he probably thought his sweetiepie was taking off his pants to give him a loving makeup beej. Then… CHOMP! The unlucky lad was taken to a local Tulsa hospital where he received (Pains me to even write this) several stitches to the base of his penis and was treated for injuries to his head, face, neck, fingers and knee. Should have slept on your stomach bruh. The 31-year-old woman was arrested and charged with maiming and assault with a dangerous weapon. Ellis was booked into the Tulsa County Jail and is being held on a $25,000 bond. No word on if they patched things up or if he has any hard feelings. However Amber is hoping to beat the charges because she believes that the evidence will never stand up in court. [KJRH]

ASUP To Begin Nationwide Strike On Wednesday

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) has reported that it would begin an across the country strike on Wednesday if the administration neglected to meet its requests before then. National President of ASUP, Comrade Chibuzor Asomugha, reported this in Abuja, when he tended to newsmen on the requests of the union, which have not been gone to by the central government since 2009. 
Asomugha reviewed that in 2012, ASUP put a 13-point request before government for transaction and resulting usage. Till date, he said, the requests had not been met till date, actually when government's inability to go to the requests prompted a progression of strikes somewhere around 2013 and 2014. 
He said that the polytechnic segment is as yet experiencing an excited recuperation from the scars of that engagement. He recorded the 12 requests, which were continued from the 2009 understanding between the Federal Government and the union. 
A portion of the requests by ASUP include: proceeded with oppression polytechnic graduates in general society administration and private segment in Nigeria; non-arrival of the White Paper on the Visitation to Federal polytechnics; non-execution of CONTISS 15 movement for the lower units and its back payments as from 2009 when the pay structure was endorsed; non-foundation of the National Polytechnics Commission (NPC) and the wrongful proceeded with distinguishment of the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) as the administrative body for polytechnics; non-constitution of Governing Councils for some Federal polytechnics by the legislature. Others are the snail-pace of the audit of the Federal Polytechnics Act by the National Assembly; the horrible under-financing of the polytechnic subsector and proceeded with imbalance in the dispensing of TETfund gifts and different intercessions obviously intended to the impediment of the polytechnic area; non-beginning of the re-arrangement of the FGN/ASUP assention as contained in the consented to arrangement. 
Different requests recorded by the union incorporated: the troubling condition of most state-claimed polytechnics and the disappointment of some state governments to execute arrangements that would guarantee institutionalization of projects and welfare of specialists in the division; arrangement of unseemly persons as minister and executive of polytechnics, monotechnics and schools of Technology by governments; the refusal of most state governments to actualize the affirmed compensation bundle (CONPCASS) and 65-year retirement age for their polytechnics, monotechnics and universities of innovation; and the refusal of government to do a thorough needs appraisal of Nigeria's open polytechnics and financing

Graphic photos: Election thugs leave huge knife inside man's chest

 Graphic photos: Election thugs leave huge knife inside man's chest


Do you see the huge knife sticking out from the man's chest area? That's the knife right after it was removed. This happened in Surulere, Lagos two weeks ago. The man was on his way to the airport to catch a flight. But because there was a lot of traffic that day, he decided to board a bike. While on his way, he encountered some election campaign hoodlums at Surulere who tried to snatch his bag. In the process, he was stabbed in the chest and the hoodlums left the knife in there and ran away.

He was rushed to the Eko hospital Surulere and from there moved to LUTH where the surgery was performed after two days to remove the knife. Thankfully he's alive and recovering very well. See photos of the knife still in his chest before the surgery after the cut...


 My goodness! Thank God for saving his life... please people be careful in these election time. These thugs look for every opportunity to steal and cause mayhem. 

Bizarre: Alfa kills friend, shares body parts

 Bizarre: Alfa kills friend, shares body parts


The police in Lagos state have arrested a Muslim cleric named Fatai Afobaje (pictured far left) for conniving with some of his friends including a security officer (middle) to kill and share the body parts of his bosom friend, 40 year old Kwara indigene, Rafiu Suleiman (pictured right) for money rituals at Oko Agbonla, Magbon in Badagry area of Lagos state on Friday February 13th.

According to Punch, Alfa Fatai and Suleiman became friends after they met inside a public transport where Suleiman paid for the transport fare of Alfa Fatai as a mark of respect. After that, the two became friends. Continue...
"The two men met in a commercial bus. Suleiman had offered to pay the transport fare of Afobaje after the conductor was about embarrassing him because he had no change. The Alfa then said he would like to know him better for being so gracious to him (Alfa). So, Suleiman gave the Alfa his address and asked him to visit. That was how the friendship started. From what we found out, Suleiman, who worked as a crane operator, would collect his salary and give half of it to Alfa at the end of the month and that happened for a long time.”a source who knew both men said
Another source narrated how the late Suleiman was invited by Alfa Rafiu at about 8pm and how he connived with security guards in the area to kill and share the body part of his friend
"As soon as the victim got to the street’s gate, the security guards surrounded him and asked who he was looking for. When he told them, they flogged him with charms and he died. They then called the Alfa to come and when he arrived, they shared his body parts. While one collected his head, another demanded all his intestines, while another asked for his breasts, which were given out.” the source said
Brother to late Suleiman, Yinusa Wahab,  said his brother's boss was the first to notify his wife of his absence from work. The wife then called him and prevailed on him to go in search of her husband at the Alfa's place where they went with policemen on Monday February 16th and found his mutilated finger inside a pot with few Naira notes and his headless body in a stream close to his house
"We went to the house, but he was not around. We searched everywhere and didn’t see my brother. Later, we saw a mutilated corpse floating on a stream near the house. It was swollen and there was no head. The breast had been cut off. We went back to the house and as we looked around, I saw some fingers in a pot which were still being burnt and when I saw them, I could recognize that they belonged to my brother.”he said
When interrogated, Alfa confessed to have worked in connivance with the Chief Security officer of his area named Tanko and 4 others to commit the crime
"He was on his way to my house when he was killed. When I got there, he had been killed and then we shared his body. I urge my accomplices to also confess because the act has been uncovered and there is nothing we can do about it". he said
The case has been transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation in Yaba, Lagos where Further investigations into the matter is ongoing.

The police in Lagos state have arrested a Muslim cleric named Fatai Afobaje (pictured far left) for conniving with some of his friends including a security officer (middle) to kill and share the body parts of his bosom friend, 40 year old Kwara indigene, Rafiu Suleiman (pictured right) for money rituals at Oko Agbonla, Magbon in Badagry area of Lagos state on Friday February 13th.

According to Punch, Alfa Fatai and Suleiman became friends after they met inside a public transport where Suleiman paid for the transport fare of Alfa Fatai as a mark of respect. After that, the two became friends. Continue...
"The two men met in a commercial bus. Suleiman had offered to pay the transport fare of Afobaje after the conductor was about embarrassing him because he had no change. The Alfa then said he would like to know him better for being so gracious to him (Alfa). So, Suleiman gave the Alfa his address and asked him to visit. That was how the friendship started. From what we found out, Suleiman, who worked as a crane operator, would collect his salary and give half of it to Alfa at the end of the month and that happened for a long time.”a source who knew both men said
Another source narrated how the late Suleiman was invited by Alfa Rafiu at about 8pm and how he connived with security guards in the area to kill and share the body part of his friend
"As soon as the victim got to the street’s gate, the security guards surrounded him and asked who he was looking for. When he told them, they flogged him with charms and he died. They then called the Alfa to come and when he arrived, they shared his body parts. While one collected his head, another demanded all his intestines, while another asked for his breasts, which were given out.” the source said
Brother to late Suleiman, Yinusa Wahab,  said his brother's boss was the first to notify his wife of his absence from work. The wife then called him and prevailed on him to go in search of her husband at the Alfa's place where they went with policemen on Monday February 16th and found his mutilated finger inside a pot with few Naira notes and his headless body in a stream close to his house
"We went to the house, but he was not around. We searched everywhere and didn’t see my brother. Later, we saw a mutilated corpse floating on a stream near the house. It was swollen and there was no head. The breast had been cut off. We went back to the house and as we looked around, I saw some fingers in a pot which were still being burnt and when I saw them, I could recognize that they belonged to my brother.”he said
When interrogated, Alfa confessed to have worked in connivance with the Chief Security officer of his area named Tanko and 4 others to commit the crime
"He was on his way to my house when he was killed. When I got there, he had been killed and then we shared his body. I urge my accomplices to also confess because the act has been uncovered and there is nothing we can do about it". he said
The case has been transferred to the State Department of Criminal Investigation in Yaba, Lagos where Further investigations into the matter is ongoing.
