Communication – Effective and Efficient Ways of Relaying Information

The main objective of any business is to make profits. It is then important for business owners to look for attributes that will ensure their businesses are run efficiently. On this article I will dwell on the importance of relaying information or in other words communication.

The communication process is commonly defined as the process by which a person (the sender) transmits information to another (the receiver). It is where one relays information, ideas, understanding or feeling to someone else. The process of communicating involves the sender transmitting information, the receiver then decoding the message and sending feed-back through a communication channel.

Sometimes communication faces several challenges such as language barriers, perceptual differences that are brought about by our cultures and backgrounds, pre-conceived ideas where one jumps to conclusions before meditating on the relaying information, premature evaluation and personal insensitivity.

However, these barriers can be overcome by striving to be brief and to the point. It is always important to pass on accurate and complete messages and being empathetic to the one receiving the information.

Getting the receiver’s attention helps in making sure you pass information and one way of doing this is by using visual devices as they have a greater impact than words. Try also to use a combination of communication media to relay information; these would be like radio, television and internet just to mention few.

If you are operating a business, it is important to put more effort into communication. Your customers, suppliers and staff should be kept informed at all times. As a business owner it is advisable to develop an effective feed-back system so as to know where to improve.

Sexually-Transmitted Diseases

Sexually-transmitted diseases, also knows as STDs, are major problem not only in the United States but also in the rest of the world. Sexually-transmitted diseases are diseases that are transmitted when two individuals, engaged in sexual activity, knowingly or unknowingly exchange bodily fluids. For example, if a man ejaculates into a woman, then sperm is transferred. As a result, the woman will catch whatever diseases the man has. Or, if the man’s sexual organ has an open bruise on it so that blood is exposed and the man has sex with a women, then the man might be infected, through the open wound, by whatever disease(s) the woman has.

Some of most widely knows sexually-transmitted diseases are HIV/AIDS, gonorrhea, herpes, and syphilis. These diseases have a variety of effects, though sometimes there are no (visible) symptoms. Some symptoms of STDs are

  • itching and scratching
  • menstrual problems
  • abnormal urination
  • fever
  • sore throat
  • ulcers
  • blindness
  • death

It is important to note that this list is only a partial list of the many effects and symptoms of being infected by a sexually-transmitted disease. Aside from death, there are many symptoms that are MUCH worse than the ones listed here (and some may such symptoms are even worse than death, although it is the process by which an individual can die that is particularly painful and gruesome).

Fortunately, there are ways to prevent or reduce the risk of being infected by an STD. Because STDs occur by an exchange of bodily fluids, one prevention technique is using condoms. Condom use is not a foolproof way to stop the transmission of STDs; it just reduces the risk of the spread of the disease. There are also vaccines for certain diseases, although most vaccines are not completely effective and many are being improved or developed.

What is also important for individuals to do is, after having any type of sex in which bodily fluids can be exchanged, to visit a clinic to be tested for a sexually-transmitted disease. Many clinics provide free sexually-transmitted diseases tests. Moreover, those individuals who know that they have a sexually-transmitted disease should not have sex so that the disease(s) they have do not spread. If they do want to have risk the spread of their disease and have sex, they must inform their sexual partner of each and every sexually-transmitted disease (they know) they have.

Knowing you have an STD and not informing your sexual partner about it is immoral and criminal. If you feel that you have had sex with someone who knew that she/he had an STD and did not inform you, visit to find out what action to take.
