Reciprocity is generally described as the practice of exchanging things with others for mutual benefit. In other words, a mutual exchange of privileges.
ORU is bringing attention to a new concept and innovative thought provoking reality we call: The Reciprocity Economy
We are currently living in what is widely acknowledged as the "sharing economy" where individuals are said to rent or "share" things like their cars, homes and personal time to other individuals in a peer-to-peer fashion. While the term sharing economy is the term most often used, the sharing economy is also referred to as the access economy, P2P peer-to-peer economy, gig economy, collaborative consumption or collaborative economy.
This economy is an information technology enabled model for commercial or non-commercial sharing of goods and services capacity through an intermediary without transfer of ownership.
However, the term "sharing economy" is misleading as companies who are and who have been using the sharing model are usually hierarchical in structure and they monitor and control its users, demanding they purchase services while guiding their movement and determining their level of earnings. Subsequently those pricing mechanisms impose unpredictable costs on its customers, extracting ever greater amounts of money whenever customers are compelled to pay them. More often than not, the "shared economy" is a top-down economy and not shared at all. This has done tremendous damage to the economy, the consequences of which are felt by millions of workers around the country today.
To save this economy we have to become a participating economy, close the wealth gap and do so based on reciprocity instead of top-down “profit at all expense" mentality. The aftermath of this crisis cannot and will not support “business as usual” rhetoric. Tens of millions of people are in need now and they need assistance today. This can only be done through the reciprocity model. This is not a social welfare model. It is not a universal basic income model. It favors incentive, participation, free market enterprise, entrepreneurialism, creativity, imagination, passion and community spirit.
Most importantly, the information technology industry can no longer be a “one way street”. A few massive tech companies cannot monetize the time and data of hundreds of millions of people, with or without their informed consent, without offering some form of reciprocity. Participation has to be rewarded as more and more of our lives move online. Reciprocity is the key. Imagine if Facebook would pay you for your being a Facebook user, if Google would pay you for having a Gmail address, if Instagram would pay you to create a story, if YouTube would pay you to post content or if Zoom / Skype would pay you to have an online meeting? This is thought provoking but when you realize that these companies monetize your data with or without your knowledge and then control that content to serve their own agendas and make billions of dollars from doing so in the process without offering any reciprocity whatsoever, you should seriously start to wonder if that is not a model that should and must change.
In the dictionary, diligence is described as a “steady, earnest and energetic effort”
Due diligence is described as the “attention and care legally expected or required of a person” and the “care that a reasonable person exercises to avoid harm to other persons or their property and research and analysis of an organization or business in preparation for a transaction”
It is very important for a prospective subscriber to do the research and analysis on what ORU is and what it represents before they make a decision to become a subscriber. While the initial registration and subscription activation fee of $5.95 and the monthly subscription fee of $5.95 are certainly considered affordable vis-a-vis the benefits and services offered under the subscription, it is incumbent upon the prospective subscriber to understand the value proposition and that the benefits and services offered are well acknowledged and understood.
ORU has a 24/7 global support desk that is happy to answer any questions about subscription, features, benefits and all aspects of ORU subscription. Prospective subscibers should use this resource.
In today’s digital world of “fake news” and “misinformation” one might encounter messages, representations and / or promises about any number of companies, organizations, services and products. It is hard to know anymore what is real and what is not.
Do not be convinced or persuaded by email messages, promotional messages or bulk marketing messages that ORU subscription is right for you. Do your homework and inform yourself thoroughly. Talk to other ORU subscribers and ask them about their experiences. Join one of the many weekly conference calls put on by ORU where many questions are answered and new features and benefits are introduced.
Most importantly, do not subscribe to ORU if you are not completely ready to do so.
We want our global subscribers to be satisfied and feel that all the ORU benefits and services are living up to their respective expectations.
A happy ORU subscriber is an informed ORU subscriber.

Software as a service (SaaS) is a software licensing and delivery model in which software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. It is sometimes referred to as "on-demand" software. SaaS is typically accessed by users using a web browser or mobile device. SaaS has become a common delivery model for many business applications, including office and messaging software, payroll processing software, DBMS software, management software, CAD software, development software, gamification, virtualization, account, collaboration, customer relationship management (CRM), management information systems (MIS), enterprise resource planning (ERP), invoicing, human resource management (HRM), talent acquisition, content management (CM) and others.

OFFICIAL ORU PUBLISHED BENEFITS
All of the ORU subscriber benefits are available inside an ORU subscriber account. If you do not see the benefits listed in the account section, they do not exist.
If you read material on the internet or receive information through email campaigns, marketing campaigns that do NOT originate from ORU, please make sure you check if these materials are accurate. You can ask these questions 24/7 from the ORU help desk at email@example.com
Also refer to the FAQ about subscription diligence.
With subscribers in over 100 countries around the world and in over 58 languages, it is very hard to monitor all information that is transmitted across the internet. It is even more difficult to correct or enforce faulty representations and they tend to “live forever” on the internet.
We are fortunate that our subscribers keep a keen eye on information that is not accurate or entirely accurate and often they help to keep the network clear of false information.
However, it is important that you make sure the benefits you might read about on the internet or in an email that is not originating from ORU are accurate and true. Remember, if it is not in your account menu, it doesn’t exists.
The ORU Network is a subscription based benefit. Subscribers register and pay a one time registration and activation fee after which they pay a small monthy subscription fee.
(Activation and Registration Fee is $5.95 and Monthly subscription fee is $5.95)
Subscribers can cancel their subscription at any time and for any reason. If for any reason a new subscriber is not satisfied with the benefits provided, ORU will provide a full and guaranteed refund of the registration fees within 15 days of registration.
Subscription to ORU does not require an investment of any kind nor are any purchases required beyond the monthly subscription fee.
Quantum computing makes use of quantum mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement to perform operations on data. Quantum computers are different from digital computers based on transistors. Whereas digital computers require data to be encoded into binary digits (bits), each of which is always in one of two definite states ( 0 or 1 ), quantum computation uses quantum bits ( qubits ), which can be in superpositions of states ( 0 and 1 at the same time)
An example to show the difference between quantum computing and digital "classic" computing would be the test of the maze.
Imagine you are in the center of a very large maze and you are asked to find your way out in the fastest possible way. You would start to move as quickly as possible, encountering dead-ends and wrong turns along the way until you finally exit the maze. Now imagine that we could make you faster and faster and faster still. You still would be just one person trying very rapidly to exit the maze. Think of this in context with digital computing.
Now imagine that instead of you being just one person, we could make you into millions of people. And we would tell the millions of you to go and find the way out of the maze. Each one of you would go in a different direction at the same time at incredible speed. Certainly one of you would find the exit to the maze in a matter of milliseconds. That is quantum computing.
In the last 2 years, quantum computing construction and on-going research has progressed tremendously. The scalability of quantum computers is being addressed by new technology partners entering the industry and old established giants who are spending significant money in research and development. There is a promising future for semi-conductor based quantum computing, even though super-conductor based systems seem to be coming along nicely. In any case, the future of quantum computing looks very bright indeed.

We came up with this motivator because we recognized that while many people want to see the world as a better and happier place, in order to enthusiastically do so, they need to first be in a great place themselves. You cannot help change the world if your own world isn't changed first.

ORU is a global cloud based network. As such it operates from a network of sophisticated data centers which are located in different parts of the world such as Luxembourg, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Singapore, Sydney, Rio de Janeiro, California, New York, Seattle, Northern Virginia. The data centers are secure and are designed to tolerate failure while maintaining full service levels. In case of failures, automated processes move traffic away from the affected area. Core applications are deployed to an N+1 standard, so that in the event of a data center failure, there is sufficient capabity to enable traffic to be load-balanced to the remaining sites.
Service usage is continuously monitored and infrastructure is deployed to support the availability commitments and requirements. Access to the data centers is only provided to approved employees. All employees who need data center access must first apply for access and provide a valid business justification. These requests are granted based on the principle of least privilege, where requests must specify to which layer of the data center the individual needs access, and are time-bound. Requests are reviewed and approved by authorized personnel, and access is revoked after the requested time expires. Once granted admittance, individuals are restricted to areas specified in their permissions.
