Avoid BURNOUT before you’re already BURNED OUT!

Tips for Webcam Models
Burnout is a mix of emotional and physical exhaustion, a lack of self-worth and a feeling of being ineffective. It takes healing in all three areas to overcome all these emotions.
Camming is not an easy job and we all know this. Having to deal with beggars, scammers, and all-around awful people while still being entertaining and enticing to the people who do support you on cam is no easy task. Camming falls under the umbrella of helping jobs, where you expand a lot of your emotional energy toward your “clients” and often do not get much back.

Therefore, burnout is so common in the camming field. You’ll see girls taking multiple days off from cam, and months even, because they’ve overextended themselves for the sake of their viewers and have neglected to take good care of themselves physically, emotionally, and mentally.


Consider these tips if you’ve found yourself working harder than usual lately.

  1. Watch for warning signs
    Burnout means different things to different people. Most of us recognize our own triggers and can ignore them. Relying on take-out too often? Perhaps you could leave the office a bit earlier each day. Irritable with friends? Maybe the root cause is an issue at work. Watching for reactions that are misaligned to the current situation is a clue that burnout may be just around the corner.
  2. Prioritizing your time and setting boundaries
    You need to have realistic expectations of yourself and set firm boundaries about what you will and won’t do, how often you’ll be on cam, and how available you’ll be OFF cam. I find that the off-cam presence is often the hardest one to be firm on, because you might feel that if you don’t give your members enough attention between camming sessions, they will forget about you and move on. While it may be true for some members, most will be understanding of you needing your private time outside of cam to recharge and do your own things instead of constantly doing Twitter status updates and tweeting sexy pics. You need to have a solid understanding of how much connection outside of cam is ok for YOU and to stick with it. Boundaries are so crucial to have, and I guarantee that you will have a greater peace of mind when your personal boundaries are not crossed by members.
  3. Selfcare
    However much you love your job, it’s essential to take good care of your body. Remember it is the reason you’re earning. You should take some time off from the schedule and spend time doing something you love. It would be best to treat yourself by going out and having fun or sleeping to help relax your body and mind. Ensure to have a day off per week, spend time relaxing, watch movies, go shopping, eat or do something you love.
  4. Vacation
    We can say that one of the most effective means to prevent burnout is to use whatever vacation or leave time you are presented with. Take a vacation and drop off the grid regularly. Turn off email and mobile notifications, and focus on enjoying time off. Every time we’ve done this, we’ve found that our stress levels stay low, and we’re refreshed.
  5. Have a good relationship with family and friends
    Camming consumes time since you need to perfect the act. Whether you’re offline, you need to prepare for the next sessions or do make-up and more. However, it’s proper to create a balance between work and social life. Camming should not change your personality, it’s a career, and you don’t have to cut off family or friends. You can lead everyday life, spend time with family, discuss home issues and have fun together.
  6. Take your mental health seriously.
    Mental health and wellness are critical factors in many aspects of life. Every cam girl should respect their mind. Don’t strain or depress over certain things you feel you cannot handle in life. You can take therapies, talk to friends, and subscribe to forums that help you connect to your inner being.

Check out the latest Dell’s 2k QHD resolution webcam and built in mic

Dell has announced a new webcam. It features QHD video quality, a premium metal body, and a built-in microphone.

The new model, dubbed the Dell pro 2K Webcam, sits below the company’s flagship 4K Webcam, but incorporates a similar high-end aesthetic and is stable in one key respect.

This more modest resolution helps it hit a lower price of $134.99, but thankfully Dell squeezed in a noise-reducing microphone at this price point — correcting the biggest omission from the 4K model. This new camera is available globally today.

The cylindrical webcam sits on top of any monitor using a universal mount and is powered via the integrated USB-A cable.
According to Dell, the camera can handle a maximum video resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels (also known as 2K or QHD) and uses image processing to apply HDR (high dynamic range) to the video, highlights and shadows when used in poorly lit environments, such as in front of a window.
One of the key features of the new Dell webcam, and one that it shares with its more expensive 4K version, is auto-framing. It uses artificial intelligence to zoom in slightly on the subject (i.e. you), then pans and zooms to keep you centered in the frame.
The Dell pro 2K webcam also offers two fields of view (65 and 78 degrees), and the Sony starvis imaging sensor delivers 2K/QHD video at 30 or 24 frames per second and 1,080-pixel Full HD at 60 can be output with , 30 or 24fps. A 720px HD option is also available and has the same three frame rate options as 1,080px.
The autofocus lens has an aperture of f/2.0 and has a 4x digital zoom. The camera is powered by a 1.5m long fixed USB-A cable. Of course, being fixed means you can’t remove it, and since it’s USB-A, people using laptops with only USB-C cables (like the Apple MacBook Air) must use a dongle.

Being limited to USB-A and having to go the route of adapters or dongles for USB-C compatibility is a bit of a sour point, but the Pro Webcam seems to make fair compromises for that lower price. Ultimately, the picture and sound quality will most likely determine if this is the better buy over the 4K version or competing options from the likes of Logitech, Microsoft, Razer, and others.

Will genetics progress make sex bygone?

According to Hank Greely, the director of Stanford Law School’s Center for Law and Biosciences, human reproduction may become automated faster than you realize.
Greely believes that within three decades, people will no longer have sex as a way to reproduce, and instead rely on genetically edited embryos grown from skin-derived stem cells, not the combination of an egg or sperm, The Independent reported.

According to Greely, this process ensures that the embryo is free from any devastating genetic diseases, and would also be cheaper in the long run because of the money it would save in healthcare over the years. What’s more, Greely predicts that couples would be able to choose other genetic traits in their children, such as physical features and intelligence.

“I don’t think we’re going to be able to say this embryo will get a 1550 on its two-part SAT,” Greely said this week at Aspen Ideas Festival, Quartz reported, “But, this embryo has a 60% chance of being in the top half, this embryo has a 13% chance of being in the top 10%—I think that’s really possible.”

This may sound far-fetched, but the gap between sex and procreation has been widening for the past 50 years thanks to the rise of fertility drugs, embroynic genetic testing, artificial insemination and in vitro fertilisation (IVF). Over the last ten years in the UK, egg freezing has increased tenfold, from just under 230 cycles in 2009 to almost 2,400 cycles in 2019. IVF birth rates in 2019 were three times higher than in 1991, and the use of egg and sperm donors has risen, too. “Now, maybe three or four per cent of the babies born in the developed world are conceived in some manner other than sexual intercourse, and I think in the future that percentage will go up,” Greely adds.

When scientists figure out how to make this work for humans, infertile and queer couples could have biological babies without needing to go through costly and risky procedures like IVF, donors or surrogates. Single people, meanwhile, could produce ‘uni babies’, using both eggs and sperm grown from their cells.

The idea may sound far-out, but according to Quartz, it already happens on a much smaller and limited scale as a way to prevent certain diseases. Although extremely expensive at the moment, advances in stem cell technology will help to drive down the cost. In addition, the amount that the government would save on not having to take care of sick babies would also make this more cost-efficient.
As many of you may worry, this is not the end of sex because recreational sex will always be with us, but it’s the end of sex as a way of procreating.
It will not be the complete end. People will still get pregnant the old-fashioned way, maybe for religious reasons, for philosophical reasons, for romantic reasons or maybe because they are teenagers and the back seat of the car is there.

“Eugenics is a slippery word; it means many things to different people. To some, it’s state-enforced reproductive control. To some, what we had was state-enforced sterilization. To some, it’s any kind of reproductive choice, but those are different things. For me, I think coercion is much more important than the issues of selection. The concern about the state or the insurance company or someone else, forcing you to pick particular babies, worries me a lot more than having parents make choices, though that raises its own set of questions.” Greely said.
