Artificial Intelligence participation in next cold war

With artificial intelligence weapons on both sides, are we in a new cold war?

It is easy to confuse the current geopolitical situation with that of the 1980s. The United States and Russia each accuse the other of interfering in domestic affairs. Russia has annexed territory over U.S. objections, raising concerns about military conflict.

As during the Cold War after World War II, nations are developing and building weapons based on advanced technology. During the Cold War, the weapon of choice was nuclear missiles; today it's software, whether its used for attacking computer systems or targets in the real world.

Russian rhetoric about the importance of artificial intelligence is picking up – and with good reason: As artificial intelligence software develops, it will be able to make decisions based on more data, and more quickly, than humans can handle. As someone who researches the use of AI for applications as diverse as dronesself-driving vehicles and cybersecurity, I worry that the world may be entering – or perhaps already in – another cold war, fueled by AI. And I'm not alone.

Modern cold war

Just like the the Cold War in the 1940s and 1950s, each side has reason to fear its opponent gaining a technological upper hand. In a recent meeting at the Strategic Missile Academy near Moscow, Russian President Vladmir Putin suggested that AI may be the way Russia can rebalance the power shift created by the U.S. outspending Russia nearly 10-to-1 on defense each year. Russia's state-sponsored RT media reported AI was "key to Russia beating [the] U.S. in defense."

It sounds remarkably like the rhetoric of the Cold War, where the United States and the Soviets each built up enough nuclear weapons to kill everyone on Earth many times over. This arms race led to the concept of mutual assured destruction: Neither side could risk engaging in open war without risking its own ruin. Instead, both sides stockpiled weapons and dueled indirectly via smaller armed conflicts and political disputes.

Now, more than 30 years after the end of the Cold War, the U.S. and Russia have decommissioned tens of thousands of nuclear weapons. However, tensions are growing. Any modern-day cold war would include cyberattacks and nuclear powers' involvement in allies' conflicts. It's already happening.

Both countries have expelled the other's diplomats. Russia has annexedpart of Crimea. The Turkey-Syria border war has even been called a "proxy war" between the U.S. and Russia.

Both countries – and many others too – still have nuclear weapons, but their use by a major power is still unthinkable to most. However, recentreports show increased public concern that countries might use them.

A world of cyberconflict

Cyberweapons, however, particularly those powered by AI, are still considered fair game by both sides.

Russia and Russian-supporting hackers have spied electronically, launched cyberattacks against power plantsbanks, hospitals and transportation systems – and against U.S. elections. Russian cyberattackers have targeted the Ukraine and U.S. allies Britain and Germany.

The U.S. is certainly capable of responding and may have done so.

Putin has said he views artificial intelligence as "the future, not only for Russia, but for all humankind." In September 2017, he told students that the nation that "becomes the leader in this sphere will become the ruler of the world." Putin isn't saying he'll hand over the nuclear launch codes to a computer, though science fiction has portrayed computers launching missiles. He is talking about many other uses for AI.

AI control of non-nuclear weapons

AI can also be used to control non-nuclear weapons including unmanned vehicles like drones and cyberweapons. Unmanned vehicles must be able to operate while their communications are impaired – which requires onboard AI control. AI control also prevents a group that's being targetedfrom stopping or preventing a drone attack by destroying its control facility, because control is distributed, both physically and electronically.

Cyberweapons may, similarly, need to operate beyond the range of communications. And reacting to them may require such rapid responsethat the responses would be best launched and controlled by AI systems.

AI-coordinated attacks can launch cyber or real-world weapons almost instantly, making the decision to attack before a human even notices a reason to. AI systems can change targets and techniques faster than humans can comprehend, much less analyze. For instance, an AI system might launch a drone to attack a factory, observe drones responding to defend, and launch a cyberattack on those drones, with no noticeable pause.

Its my claim that PTI is the most popular party in the Pakistan's history- Imran Khan

Well, It does have the potential to become in future.You can't become the most popular party in like 7 years after you become famous.It will take time.

Bhutto's ppp junoon was really high.No other political party can compare to it for now.But, It might change in future once pti gets government and changes this country.

 

Hi IK,
I am PTI supporter but will vote on these grounds
Education of Candidate
In case, the PTI candidate is least educated and PPP field an educated one, despite PTI supporter have no choice to vote for PPPP candidate.
Living in The Constituency
Suppose you tried to give a ticket to an outsider, I can't travel to meet with my representative so my vote will be for a candidate who is from constituency.
Clean Person
Please don't expect I will vote for Nazar Gondal kind of Candidates.
Party
I am using Party at the end is because, Party is because of the people. If PTI awarded ticket to wrong people then we are going to have lot of Ayesha Gulalai.

Ahmad Shahzad returns for New Zealand T20Is

Right-handed opener Ahmad Shahzad made yet another comeback for Pakistan as he was included in the 15-man squad for the upcoming three-match T20I series against New Zealand.

 

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) National Selection Committee headed by Inzamam-ul Haq announced the decision after consultation with captain Sarfraz Ahmed and head coach Mickey Arthur on Wednesday.

All-rounder Imad Wasim, who missed out in the ODI series due to the knee injury, will not be able to recover in time for the series and therefore all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz will take his place in the squad.

“Imad Wasim was yet to recover from his knee injury and was told to continue his rehabilitation at the NCA,” said Inzamam. “Mohammad Nawaz has been named to replace Imad Wasim. Sohaib Maqsood was not considered for selection due to the back injury, and will undergo rehabilitation at the NCA.”

Squad: Sarfraz Ahmed, Fakhar Zaman, Ahmed Shehzad, Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Harris Sohail, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Amir Yamin, Muhammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Rumman Raees, Umar Amin.



Market watch: KSE-100’s 13-session positive streak ends

The stock market took a much-anticipated breather on Tuesday, as the KSE-100 Index lost 298 points to fall below the 43,000 level.

The negative finish also brought to an end a 13-session winning streak for the benchmark-100 share index with heavyweight automobile and cement sectors witnessing selling pressure.

Several prominent names in the fertiliser and commercial banking sectors also closed in the red zone as high reported selling and profit-taking took their toll on the index.

 

After a steep rise at the start of the session, the index maintained a downward trajectory, touching 42,566 points at one point before eventually rising again by almost 250 points.

At close on Tuesday, the KSE-100 Index ended with a decrease of 297.78 points or 0.69% to finish at 42,814.34.

Elixir Securities’ analyst Ali Raza said equities closed lower on Tuesday, snapping a 13-session positive run that added over 13.5% and close to 5,000 points to the KSE-100 Index.

“The market opened positive, but failed to carry the momentum as uncertain political environment in Baluochistan gave equities a good enough excuse to take a breather,” said Raza.

“Oil and gas exploration companies, financials and cements sunk in early trading and closed the day lower on profit-booking with Habib Bank HBL PA -2.4%, United Bank UBL PA -2.2%, Pakistan Petroeluem PPL PA -1.1% and OGDC PA -1% denting KSE-100 Index the most.

“Meanwhile, fertilisers and gas utilities again had a field day with the former remaining in the limelight as investors bet on upcoming fertiliser policy to benefit the industry, while the latter continued gains on euphoria over approval of third LNG pipeline.

“Consolidation maybe seen at current levels with chartists recommending strong support near 42,500 levels,” Raza added.

Overall, trading volume decreased to 225 million shares, compared with Monday’s tally of 270 million.

Shares of 370 companies were traded. At the end of the day, 132 stocks closed higher, 217 declined while 21 remained unchanged. The value of shares traded during the day was Rs9.75 billion.

TRG Pak was the volume leader with 23.5 million shares, gaining Rs1.36 to close at Rs30.78. It was followed by WorldCall Telecom with 19.4 million shares, losing Rs0.17 to close at Rs3.00 and Pak Elektron with 16.01 million shares, gaining Rs2.23 to close at Rs53.92.



Seven martyred in blast near Balochistan Assembly

At least seven people, including five Balochistan Constabulary personnel, have been martyred, after a suicide bomber struck a security forces truck in Quetta, according to hospital and security officials.

The attack, claimed by the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan on Tuesday, took place on GPO Chowk, a busy street in a high-security zone some 300 metres from the Balochistan Assembly.

The blast targeted the police truck where the security personnel were standing after performing their duties at the assembly building. “A suicide bomber was believed to have walked up to the truck and blown himself up,” a senior police officer said.

Five security personnel died on the spot as a result of the explosion while 16 others, including eight security personnel, sustained injuries.

The attack took place hours after Sanaullah Zehri resigned as chief minister of Balochistan, although there was no indication that the blast was connected to provincial politics.

“Due to the assembly session, the vicinity of Balochistan Assembly building was completely cordoned off and heavy contingents of security personnel were deployed,” Inspector General Police Mozzam Jah Ansari told media after visiting the blast site.

“The attack occurred after the assembly proceedings ended,” he added.

The blast has drawn widespread condemnation and reactions from across the country:

Rescue workers and law-enforcement agencies rushed to the spot and shifted the bodies and injured to Civil Hospital Quetta. The hospital was completely cordoned off by the Frontier Corps and police soon after the suicide attack.

More than 900 police and Balochistan Constabulary personnel were deployed inside and outside the Zarghoon Road to protect the Balochistan Assembly session.

Refuting speculation that the suicide bomber wanted to target the assembly session where a no-confidence motion against the chief minister was to be discussed, the IG Police said, “The actual point of the blast is exactly on the opposite direction of the assembly.”

“The attack happened after almost an hour after the assembly proceedings were completed that indicates the suicide bomber wanted to target security personnel guarding the people of Balochistan.”

Former home minister Mir Sarfaraz Bugti strongly condemned the atrocity and tweeted, “The latest terror attack in by terrorists is an attempt to portray negatively amidst Chief Minister’s resignation. Fight against terrorism will continue despite the change of government in the province.”

Bashir Ahmed, a witness of the blast said, we were stuck in traffic blockade after all roads leading towards Assembly were completely shut, “Soon after traffic resumed we heard a powerful explosion and my three friends sitting with in a car received injuries.”

Medical Superintendent (MS) Civil Hospital Shahjahan Panezai said, at least 16 injured have been shifted to Trauma Center while emergency had been declared in the hospital minutes after the blast.

Many MPAs were present inside the Assembly when the blast occurred.



MQM-P leader Shahid Pasha returns after 24-day ‘forced disappearance’

After ‘disappearing’ for the last 24 days, Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) leader Shahid Pasha has reportedly returned to the party headquarters in Karachi’s Bahadurabad area.

Pasha met with Amir Khan and other party leaders and apprised them about his ‘forced disappearance’ after suddenly turning up at the MQM-P head-office on Monday night, Express News reported.

He, however, left for home without speaking to media representatives. Other party leaders also avoided commenting on the episode on the occasion.

 

The family of the MQM -Pakistan’s deputy convener had moved the Sindh High Court (SHC) seeking his whereabouts two days after his disappearance in mysterious circumstances last month.

His wife had claimed that the personnel of law enforcement agencies intercepted the car Pasha was traveling in with a driver near the National Stadium on December 15.

He was returning home from the party’s headquarters in Bahadurabad.

She said the personnel took away Pasha and his driver, who was later released, but her husband did not return home.

Before last month’s incident, Pasha was released from prison after an anti-terrorism court granted him bail in two cases pertaining to an incendiary speech delivered by his party founder Altaf Hussain over telephone from London in August, 2016.

The Artillery Maidan police had booked Pasha along with other party leaders on allegations of facilitating Altaf’s controversial speech delivered outside the Karachi Press Club and for praising its content.



Zubaida Tariq: A legendary force

Growing up as a girl in the Pakistani society, you had to know your totkay and your pakoray. What do you do if you can’t add wine to sauce? What’s the substitute for mascarpone cheese? How to achieve that perfect porcelain skin? How do you make the perfect gol roti to impress your in-laws? Worry not. Mrs Zubaida Tariq – or Zubaida Apaas everyone remembered her – had the answer.

Before we go deeper into emotional details. Here’s more about the woman that imprinted her presence in minds and hearts for generations to come. Zubaida Apa was born in Hyderabad Deccan, British India.

Her family migrated to Pakistan in 1947 and settled in Karachi, PIB Colony where she lived with her five older sisters and four brothers. In 1951, she lost her grandfather and then her father in 1953.

After the demise of her father, three of her sisters took over all the responsibilities of running the household. At the age of 21, Apa got married to her first cousin Tariq Maqsood.

Post her marriage in 1966, she lived on Jamshed Road and had two kids, a daughter named Shaha Tariq and a son Hussain Tariq.

Zubaida Apa was born into a prominent Urdu-speaking family known for producing littérateurs, intellectuals and artists. Her maternal granduncle was Bahadur Yar Jung, a Muslim nationalist of the Indian subcontinent.

The most notable of her siblings include Fatima Surayya Bajia – an Urdu novelist and playwright, Zehra Nigah, an Urdu poet and Anwar Maqsood, who is a popular poet, humourist, writer and entertainer. Her nephew Bilal Maqsood is the vocalist and guitarist for the very famous pop-rock band Strings.

While Anwar and Fatima had always been working in the industry as writers and creative producers, Apa’s career began much later. She appeared as the kindly matron in a cooking show and later grew to prominence as she wrote cookbooks and hosted many other programmes as well.

Apa’s first shows were all about these small household ‘totkay’ or tricks to fix little problems such as acne or badly cooked rice. For the average girl or housewife, Zubaida Aapa was a godsend.

When she first appeared onscreen, with her perfect hair, smiling disposition and cotton sari wrapped neatly across her shoulder, she captured the hearts of many women in desperate need of a domestic fairy godmother to help them out with matters of the kitchen.

She is also known to have hosted over hundreds of television and radio programmes across channels

Zubaida Apa became a household name – a force to be reckoned with. She was Pakistan’s Martha Stewart. No. She was undoubtedly better than Martha Stewart. Zubeida Apa’s legacy was free of financial controversy or fraud – She was loved for who she was and what she did all her life – which is be the kind, television mom who you could always rely on.

 

‘What was her appeal?’ – one wonders, as tributes come pouring in from all of Pakistan – the Pakistan that learnt how to get perfect golden brown onions and make impeccable Shahi Tukray from Zubaida Apa.

What makes her legacy so unique? With the plethora of hosts and entire channels dedicated to household programming and culinary classes, what was it about Apa that resonated with the audience on a level that made her a brand like no other?

It was perhaps her smiling demeanour and kindly nature that allowed onlookers to not see her as a teacher but as a sympathetic aunt who wanted to help out.

Her soft-spoken manner and hands-on, relatable tips and tricks were what most women, floundering under the fresh responsibilities and pressures of a new home at the in-laws, learnt from her.

Zubaida Apa stepped into the limelight to share her knowledge and her craft.  The fact that she had been a homemaker and gifted with the culinary arts, is what made her inherently relatable and admirable to many audiences across the South Asian diaspora.

There are many hosts today that have garnered love, respect, high esteem and followers that cherish and follow them religiously – but no one would have the impact that Zubaida Aapa did as a pioneer in the business.

She was exclusively known for her gastronomic, domestic and homemaking tips. Her name sold merchandise, inspired caricatures and she became the definitive and the last word on ‘home matters’. The cultural impact of her as an icon is undeniable.

Not only was she loved by millions, her unique and consistent style as a presenter, culinary artist and connoisseur will be hard to replace for many years to come.



7 useful totkay from Zubaida Apa's book of remedies

Zubaida Tariq, a household name, an icon and an inspiration for many passed away after a brief illness on Thursday night.

Talking to the media, her brother and famous writer, Anwar Maqsood confirmed the sad news, “Zubaida Apa passed away after a brief illness. Her funeral will be held at Sultan Masjid [in DHA area of Karachi] after Friday prayers.”

Zubaida Apa came to prominence in the late 90s due to her recipes and home remedies or totkas. She was regarded as a cooking mentor and thousands of people learned cooking by watching her shows.

Cricket with Pakistan not possible, says Indian FM Sushma Swaraj

India’s Foreign Minister, Sushma Swaraj, has ruled out the resumption of cricketing ties between arch-rivals Pakistan and India for the foreseeable future.

 

Indian media reported that Swaraj, while talking after the meeting of the consultative committee attached to the Indian foreign ministry, said that due to tensions on the border, cricket diplomacy with Pakistan is not possible.

How Pakistan fared in ODIs in 2017

 

 

“The high number of cross-border firings did not set the tone for engagements such as a cricket series,” Swaraj was quoted as saying by the local media as she was replying to the question regarding the resumptions of cricketing ties between the two countries.

Both countries have not faced each other in a bilateral series since 2012, when Pakistan — under the leadership of captain Misbahul Haq — defeated MS Dhoni’s men 2-1 in the three-match ODI series.

How Pakistan fared in T20Is in 2017

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) signed an MoU during the establishment of the Big Three, where both countries were to play eight bilateral series between 2015 and 2023, six of which were supposed to be hosted by Pakistan.

However, not even a single series has materialised.




Big Bash League: Shadab Khan, Alex Ross star as Heat down Thunders

Pakistan leg-spinner Shadab Khan produced a brilliant spell, while Alex Ross hit a quick fire 25 to help Brisbane Heat beat Sydney Thunders by six wickets on Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) method at the Gabba on Wednesday.

 

The match was reduced to 17 overs-a-side because of rain earlier in the day, and it was Thunders’ captain Shane Watson who won the toss and opted to bat first.

His decision paid dividends as the visitors managed to post a competitive 149-run target for Brendon McCullum-led Heats in their 17 overs.

 

 

Shadab to turn the Heat on in BBL

Star of the show for Thunders was captain Watson who scored a 56 runs off 34 balls, with the help of six fours and two maximums. He was well supported by middle-order batsman Callum Ferguson, who scored 37 off 26 courtesy four boundaries.

For the home side, Shadab was the pick of the bowlers as he claimed two wickets and gave away just 27 runs in his four overs.

Chasing a revised target of 151, Heat lost McCullum early, but wicketkeeper-batsman Jimmy Peirson’s 43 off 39 kept the home side on course for victory.

With the run-rate climbing, the hosts were in need of a real push, which came from middle-order batsman Alex Ross, who scored an unbeaten 25 off just nine balls with the help of two fours and two maximums to seal the victory for the Heat, with a ball to spare.

Right-handed batsman Joe Burns was the top-scorer for Brisbane with an unbeaten 45 off 35 with the help of a solitary four and a six.

For Thunders, New Zealand left-arm pacer Mitchell McClenaghan accounted for two batsmen, whereas captain Watson and right-arm off-spinner Arjun Nair grabbed one wicket apiece.

For his timely cameo, Ross received the player-of-the-match award. 



Nawaz Sharif to leave for Saudi Arabia on Saturday

Nawaz Sharif is reportedly leaving for Saudi Arabia on Saturday for a high-level meeting with Saudi officials.

 

According to Express News, Nawaz is departing for Saudi Arabia on December 30, while Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif is already present in the country. It is also reported that Minister of Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique may also depart for the kingdom.

Conspiracy being hatched against democracy, government: Maryam Nawaz

 

Sources say Nawaz’s Saudi visit is political and may also be the reason why Saudi officials sent a private plane for Shehbaz. CM reached Saudi on Tuesday and met with multiple officials including Turkish prime minister Binali Yildrim.

Due to Nawaz’s travel schedule, the PML-N jalsa which was to be held in Sargodha on Wednesday was also cancelled until further notice.



Ayesha Gulalai to launch her 'own faction of PTI'

Ayesha Gulalai, the discontented MNA of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has said that she will launch her own faction of the party – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-Gulalai (PTI-G) – months after leveling sexual harassment allegations against her former party chief Imran Khan.

 

She revealed this during a meeting with PTI’s senior leader Seema Anwar recently in Lahore, a video of which has surfaced on Friday, Express News reported.

Gulalai can be seen wooing Anwar to join her forthcoming party in the video, likely filmed through a cell phone. She asked the former colleague not to pin hopes to PTI leadership, which according to her will only give election tickets to wealthy and influential women.

 

The latter declined the offer, saying she was highly respected in the party and had no intention to part ways with it.

Anwar, however, offered her contacts of few disgruntled female leaders of the party including “Zainab, Fareeda and several others.”

Gulalai claimed that her party would become so successful that the Imran Khan-led party would join it eventually.

Ayesha Gulalai hints at forming her own PTI faction

On August 1, Gulalai had accused the PTI chief and his ‘gang’ of sending lewd text messages to women workers, saying they were being constantly harassed within the party.

The PTI, after serving her show-cause notice, moved the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to de-seat her on charges of defecting the party.

The commission, however, dismissed the reference to de-seat the MNA, elected on a women’s reserved seat.



Google remembers Mirza Ghalib with doodle on 220th birthday

Search engine Google on Wednesday celebrated one of Urdu literature’s most iconic poets, Mirza Asadullah Baig Khan, popularly known as Ghalib -meaning conqueror.

 

Ghalib, who would have turned 220 this year, is shown standing on a balcony of a building of his era, with a pen, paper and the sun and a mosque in his background.

Born in 1797, the poet, one of the most popular and influential ones in Urdu and Persian language, wrote at a time when the Mughal empire was entering its last quarter and the British were taking over in India.

 

His ghazals have been interpreted and sung in many different ways by different people and his writing is still extremely popular among the Hindustani diaspora. Ghalib continues to inspire the youth not just in India but across the world.

He began composing poetry at the age of 11. His first language was Urdu but he was equally proficient in Persian and Turkish. A descendent of Aibak Turks, Ghalib was born in Kala Mahal in Agra.

He received education in Persian and Arabic. Keeping with the conventions of the classical ghazal, in most of his verses, the identity and the gender of the beloved remained unknown.

Bestowed with the honorific Dabir-ul-Mulk and Najm-ud-Daula, Ghalib lived in Gali Qasim Jaan, Ballimaran, Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi which is now known as Ghalib Ki Haveli. His residence has been turned into Ghalib Memorial and houses a permanent Ghalib exhibition.

Ghalib breathed his last on February 15, 1869. His tomb is located near Chausath Khamba, Nizamuddin area in Delhi.



“123456” and “password” are the worst passwords of 2017

The recent years have witnessed a surge in hackings and data breaches, which has raised concerns regarding security online. Internet users have been time and again advised to use strong passwords containing combination of letters, numbers and symbols for better security of accounts. However, it appears that all these warnings are falling on deaf ears.

According to an annual report from Splashdata, “123456” and “password” came out on the top as people’s choice of phrases to protect their accounts from hackers. Splashdata prepares a list of top 100 passwords based on the millions of aggregating passwords leaked in data breaches during the past year. The report also reveals that people use sports and film titles as their passwords, as they are easy to remember.

Apparently, more than five million passwords were leaked by hackers in 2017.

  1. Password
  2. 12345678
  3. qwerty
  4. 12345
  5. 123456789
  6. letmein
  7. 1234567
  8. football
  9. iloveyou
  10. admin
  11. welcome
  12. monkey
  13. login
  14. abc123
  15. starwars
  16. 123123
  17. dragon
  18. passw0rd
  19. master
  20. hello
  21. freedom
  22. whatever
  23. qazwsx
  24. trustno1

As we mentioned above, films play a major role in users deciding on their passwords. The list suggests that the recently released Star Wars: The Last Jedi has influenced many people’s choice of passwords such as ‘starwars.’

“Unfortunately, while the newest episode may be a fantastic addition to the Star Wars franchise, ‘starwars’ is a dangerous password to use,” SplashData CEO Morgan Slain said in a press release. “Hackers are using common terms from pop culture and sports to break into accounts online because they know many people are using those easy-to-remember words.”

If you are using any of the password showing in the above list, we suggest you to change your password immediately.



Apple confirms it slows down your old iPhones

We had recently reported how Reddit users had noticed that Apple is intentionally slowing down older iPhones through new iOS software updates. In fact, iPhone owners discovered that replacing the battery in an old phone can boost its speed.

The Cupertino giant on Wednesday confirmed that it is slowing down older iPhones to prevent them from shutting down and “smooth out” battery usage to meet peak demands.

Apple’s statement followed a study by Geekbench developer John Poole which backed up Reddit users claims that Apple curbs the speed of aging iPhones. So, Poole used Geekbench’s benchmarking testing to find out

He carried out single-core tests on iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 units running different versions of iOS. According to his findings, Apple has made a tweak in iOS 10.2.1 to 11.2.0 that appears to throttle the iPhone’s performance when the smartphone’s “battery condition decreases past a certain point,” Poole said.

 

Pointing out a Reddit user, who goes by the handle “kadupse,” Poole said that the user had the most likely explanation: “Because degraded batteries last much less and end up with a lower voltage Apple’s solution was to scale down CPU performance, it doesn’t solve anything and is a bad experience… but it’s better than having your device shutdown at 40% when you need it the most.”

While Apple hasn’t provided any information behind when the CPU throttling exactly sets in, it although in a statement sent to TechCrunch, Apple said, “Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.

 

“Last year we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions. We’ve now extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future.”



Samsung Unveils ‘World’s Smallest’ DRAM Chip

The South Korean giant Samsung has a new 8GB DDR4 RAM chip, and as you have already imagined it is faster, it consumes less energy and full of other benefits. Now many of you will wonder what is the novelty of this new RAM chip? The novelty is that the South Korean giant Samsung has squeezed its manufacturing process on 10nm to give us a significant improvement without making the leap to a new technology.

Yes, in 2018 the South Korean giant Samsung Samsung will debut its second-generation 10nm manufacturing technology and this DRAM chip will be the first to take advantage of it. Where in spite of the fact that it is an adjustment to the process used during this 2017, they have made it even smaller, becoming the smallest in the world of its kind. Everything an achievement.

However, now let’s go to the figures. According to the South Korean giant Samsung, this chip is 15% more efficient in energy consumption and 10% faster than the previous generation, in addition to the company has perfected the manufacturing process by 30%, which will make it easier to manufacture and have immediate availability, in order to be faced with a reduction in costs and prices for the consumer.

It has been only 20 months since we met the previous generation of the South Korean giant Samsung’s DRAM chips, with which they launched the 10nm process. Many expected the company to make the jump to 7 or 8 nanometers, but apparently, they want to take it easy because right now they have no one to overshadow them in this section.

The South Korean giant Samsung has also confirmed that during 2018 it will start with the tests within manufacturing processes over 8nm, in what seems to be a simple and natural change to have perfected the 10nm. On the other hand, the technology of 7nm will remain pending for a few more years because the adoption of ultraviolet lithography is getting complicated.

Now the next thing will be to adapt the rest of its chips to this 10nm process of second generation, which will begin to migrate first the high performance platforms like DDR5, HBM3, LPDDR5 and GDDR6, focusing on servers, supercomputers, HPC systems and GPUs of high performance, as well as smartphones, where they seek not to give ground.

The South Korean giant Samsung also confirming that the manufacture of chips under 10nm first generation technology will continue during 2018, which will seek to supply channels so there is no shortage and thus continue to gain market share.



Hackers Using Google Adwords & other Google Sites To Spread Malware

Any service is good if it allows to reach the desired goal. That is what cybercriminals must think about when deciding on one service or another. On this occasion, security experts have located malware campaigns that use the services of Internet giant Google AdWords and Google Sites to distribute computer viruses to users in the form of legitimate application installers.

To be more precise, cyber offenders have helped the Google Chrome web browser to get the user to install the threat in question. The security experts indicate that the installer groups several programs classified as PUP (Potentially Unwanted Programs). Some of these are responsible for listening to the waiting for instructions from a remote server.

All those who do not know Google AdWords, it is an ad service. The user pays an amount to show his ad in the results of the search engine of the US company. That is, if we want to look for something related to “networks” or “routers”, the first result will be an advertisement about the purchase of products related to networks. Where is the trick? If the user searches for “Google Chrome”, they will always choose to download the first search result. Many users are not aware that this content is an advertisement.

This makes one practice clear: the tech giant Google does not have a thorough analysis of the content that appears in these ads. Cybercriminals are paying the Internet Giant, Google for distributing access to a web page that allows malware to be downloaded.

It must also be said that the content shown in these “results” depends to a large extent on the searches and cookies generated on the computer that the user is using. But the problem does not end here for the Mountain View company.

In addition to Google AdWords, cybercriminals also use Google Sites

It is one of the many tools offered through G Suite. It allows the creation of web pages in a simple way. This causes cybercriminals to create a false page to download the Google Chrome web browser. The users think that it is a legitimate location and they continue with the process.

The file that is downloaded has the name ChromeSetup.exe. This file is downloaded from a Google Drive folder. Yes, oddly enough, from Google to offer the full support to carry out a distribution of malware.

The executable contains the threat Coinrobot.xyz

Although it is not well known, it is a malware that installs coin mining software on the user’s computer using hardware resources. It goes without saying that only computers with a Windows operating system are likely to be affected.

As can be seen, until recently the desire was to carry out the encryption of the files and request a reward. Now it is to carry out the mining of cryptocurrencies.

The Internet Giant Google is already warned about this practice. Luckily for users, the threats included in the fake Google Chrome installer are detected by most security tools, even before they run.

So, what do you think about this? Simply share your views and thoughts in the comment section below.



9 Alarming Symptoms Of Diabetes That Should Not Be Ignored

 

Diabetes is a scary disease with a variety of alarming symptoms.

According to the Center for Disease Control And Prevention’s (CDC)National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion around 30.3 million people in the United States suffer from diabetes.

That means that almost 10% of our national population is diabetic.

So what exactly is diabetes? According to the Mayo Clinic, “If you have diabetes, no matter what type, it means you have too much glucose in your blood, although the causes may differ. Too much glucose can lead to serious health problems.”

There are two types of chronic diabetes: type 1 and type 2.

In type 1 diabetes, the body doesn’t produce enough insulin, which means the body can’t process sugar properly. Generally, type 1 diabetes appears during childhood or adolescence.

In type 2 diabetes, the body resists insulin or doesn’t produce enough of it. Usually, type 2 diabetes is caused by genetics, but inactivity and excess weight gain may contribute.

Although they’re different, both types of diabetes have some of the same symptoms.



Facebook Will Find Your Untagged Posts Using Facial Recognition

Messenger is increasingly used as a means of communication between people and groups of people. This application is associated with the social network giant Facebook’s personal profile and therefore it is not recommended for children under 13 years of age.

Thinking about the younger audience, recently, we saw that the social network giant Facebook today launched Messenger Kids, a messaging application for children that allows parents to control it.

Moreover, recently we also reported that the social network giant Facebook’s Instant Games platform simply enables you to play titles such as Pac-Man in Messenger or the News Feed and is currently getting some meaningful updates.

However, the main among them is a new live stream option that simply allows you to stream any Instant play you are playing on the social network giant Facebook Live. These streams will also be saved so you can post them to your profile later.

The social network giant Facebook also says it’s starting to test video chat for certain games, so you can see your friends while you play and even start a new game from a video call.

A few months ago, the well-known image messaging and multimedia mobile application, of course, I am talking about Snapchat who announced the World Lenses, which allows you to place three-dimensional objects in the image or video. On the same day, the social network giant Facebook also announced that it would do something similar. This was somewhat restricted to some brands and now is available to all developers.

The AR Studio tool which was launched in open beta for anyone to download and try out. You can associate an animation with certain actions, such as displaying lightning when you raise your eyebrows.

With it, you can add a heart that accompanies someone’s head, or a set of arrows that point to a moving object, or even a robot that plays music.

The social network giant Facebook calls it “World Effects.” They are already available on the Messenger camera and the social network giant Facebook’s own app itself (button in the upper left corner of the app).

Now, the social network giant Facebook, since several years ago has managed to enhance its facial recognition technology in an impressive way. Undoubtedly, it has managed and prepared the social network so that users get the best possible experience among so many features.

The idea has always been that users can manage their identity more easily on the platform. Therefore, and following the form of “update” comes the characteristic to know when they have published photographs in which you appear, whether you have been labelled or not, as it will work through the Photo Review tool.

How does it work?

Simple, the photographs must have been published for a public audience, or also that the user must be within the large audience where the publication was directed.

Now, Facebook will facilitate the task to find us in a photograph, without a doubt, the facial recognition that integrates is extremely powerful and functional. In addition, the platform will notify affected users when others have used their image as a profile picture; a very interesting function that will help us to report possible scams, among other things.

Also, it has been created to facilitate the task for people with visual disabilities. If they use screen readers they will be able to know in real time the people that appear in the photos of their friends on the wall.

This new function will be displayed little by little worldwide, at the moment the users from Canada and Europe cannot find it due to the different legislations existing in these markets due to the protection of privacy that has been established in recent years.

In addition, you can deactivate facial recognition technology in your profile whenever you want, as well as activate it. Facebook, for this, will deploy an update in the coming days.

To finish, at the moment it is the information that is handled about this facial recognition that Facebook implements to provide better options and more productivity to the users.

Terror attack in New York

A Bangladeshi national in his 20s has been taken into custody with serious injuries after a suspected pipe bomb he was carrying malfunctioned and exploded prematurely inside a Midtown Manhattan subway station Monday morning.  

The explosion happened around 7:20am, in an underground tunnel linking the Port Authority Bus Terminal to Times Square. The underground tunnel is a major thoroughfare for workers during the morning rush hour.

The suspect, identified as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, was found injured at the scene and rushed to Bellevue Hospital. He was wearing what appears to be a homemade pipe bomb attacked to his body with velcro and zip ties.  

Three other people were also hurt with minor injuries. They self reported to two area hospitals for injuries including ringing in the ears and headaches.    

Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC's Morning Joe that the suspect 'supposedly was setting the device off in the name of ISIS' and that it was 'definitely a terrorist attack, definitely intended'. 

At a morning press conference, current NYPD Commission James O'Neill said that the suspect 'did make statements' but that they are not going to comment on them yet. 

Though it's still early in the investigation, New York City officials say it was definitely an attempted terror attack. 

'This was an attempted terror attack and thank God the perpetrator did not achieve his ultimate goals,' Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

CNN reports that it appears the Subway was not the intended target of the pipe bomb, and that it may have went off prematurely. 

They also learned that the device was homemade and could have caused catastrophic damage if it went off as intended. 

Commissioner O'Neill said that they have obtained CCTV footage of the attack, but would not go into detail about what it shows. 

The Port Authority Bus Terminal is the largest in the country and the busiest in the world - serving about 225,000 commuters a day. 

It's what's known by law enforcement officials as a 'soft target' because it handles a lot of traffic but doesn't have the same kind of security as a place like an airport. 

New York Mayor Andrew Cuomo said a bombing in the subway is 'one of our worst nightmares' - but he said New Yorkers will get through this as they have before on 9/11 and even the most recent terror attack on Halloween. 

'This is the New York. The reality is we are the target by many who would like to make a statement against democracy and against freedom. We have the Statue of Liberty in our harbour and that makes us an international target. We understand that anyone can go on the internet and download garbage and vileness on how to put together an amateur-level explosive device and that is the reality that we live with. 

'The counter-reality is that this is New York and we all pitch together and we are a savvy people and we keep our eyes open and that's what 'see something, say something' is all about. And we have the best law enforcement on the globe and we're all working together extraordinarily well,' Gov. Cuomo said. 

Social worker Michael, 35, was commuting from New Jersey to Brooklyn when the chaos unfolded.

He said: 'There were people running from various angles and screaming that someone had a gun. People were saying "just run, just go". Everyone was looking around confused.

'After a few minutes I think I heard another person say there was an explosion and that's when people started to panic. There was a lot of chaotic shouting and screaming. I saw a guy spring past me and as people scattered the crowd began to hurry more and push through the doors.

'There are escalators that lead outside and steps and people were running up to get outside. We are talking 50 or 60 people. People were running over each other at one point. It became like a domino effect as everyone tried to run through the doors.

'We got out and I ran across the street to 41st. I could hear sirens going off and people were grabbing their phones and calling home. Everyone was quite panicked and shook up.'

He added: 'It's scary. I'm quite on edge now.' 

 

Video from above the 'Crossroads of the World' showed lines of police and emergency vehicles, their lights flashing, lining the streets and no other vehicle traffic moving.

Everything around the Port Authority in the 42nd Street area was shut down while police investigated the bombing - a surreal scene of what would ordinarily be a bustling rush hour.

A spokesman for the Port Authority say they plan to have the transit hub up and running fully by the evening rush hour. 

Mayor De Blasio said getting transportation up and running again was an important message to the failed terrorist. 

'We're not going to allow them to disrupt us. That is exactly what they what and that is exactly what they are not going to get,' he said. 

While the suspect's motivation has not been established yet, his alleged statements about ISIS and Bangladeshi background suggest he was motivated by extreme religion. 

The attack also comes on the heels of a Muslim day of rage in Dhaka, Bangladesh's capital, last week where thousands of Muslims protested over President Trump's declaration of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. 

 

The decision - which breaks with decades of tradition in international policy - has drawn widespread criticism from Muslims and Christians around the world.

Previous presidents have refrained from such direct involvement in the Middle East's historic conflict but Trump proudly waded in. Moving the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem was a campaign promise which he now boasts about fulfilling. 

 

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted Monday morning that the president had been briefed on the situation. 

Monday's explosion comes a month after Sayfullo Saipov ploughed through cyclists on the a cycle path in Tribeca.

The Uzbek national killed eight people in his rented Home Depot truck by mowing them down before crashing into a school bus. He injured another 12.

Saipov, 29, who was living in Paterson, New Jersey, was gunned down by a police officer and remains in custody.

ksmart

You might be thinking that you already have a keychain. But it probably doesn’t compare to this new futuristic keychain. Here’s a fact everyone can agree upon: bulky keychains are both unsightly and cumbersome to handle. Not to mention, they won’t protect your pockets from getting shredded to bits by your expansive key collection.

That’s where the KeySmart comes in. This handy key organizer offers a simple, elegant solution for organizing your keys – allowing you to eliminate your keychain for good.

Let’s start with the basics: this durable key holder can hold up to 14 keys in a compact fashion, and is durable to boot. It consists of two 3mm thick plates made of aircraft grade aluminum, meaning you won’t have to worry about handling it with kid gloves.

No surprise, then, that we also guarantee that the KeySmart will take anything life throws at it. Take it anywhere – from work, to the beach, and much more – knowing it won’t get dented or scratch easily.

You won’t have to worry about the contents of your pockets getting scratched, either! For instance, you can rest assured your keys won’t scratch your phone. And as an added bonus, you’ll be able to walk around without being heard a mile away due to your keys jingling and jangling about – as they would on a conventional keychain.

And how’s this for ultimate convenience? The KeySmart boasts a built-in clip that allows you to attach it to any pocket, belt, or bag. (If you’d prefer to go without the clip, you can easily remove it.) You can even customize your KeySmart by adding accessories like USB drives and bottle openers to it, all available separately on the KeySmart website.

How To Remove Virus From Any Drive Using Command Prompt (CMD) In Windows 10

For starters a virus is a self- replicating computer program that infects your computer. These viruses are a menace and can spread across multiple computers via USB/flash drives, external media and other means. As we all know, there is a multitude of anti-virus software. To our dismay, not all of them can do the trick. Sometimes, even your antivirus can fail to detect some sort of viruses. Well, in such case, CMD prompt may be the solution to help you solve the virus issues. Most of us grapple with viruses like Autorun.inf, newfolder.exe, ravmon.exe, svchost.exe etc. They usually present themselves as files and sometimes they can even be files hidden from you.

 

To remove a virus using CMD, we shall use a CMD known as “attrib” command. Therefore first we have an obligation to know a few basics of the attrib command.

– represents the read only attribute of a file or folder. Read only means the file can’t be written or executed.

– H stands for the hidden attribute.

A – Similarly A stands for Archiving and this prepares a file for archiving.

– This attribute changes the selected files or folders in a system file from a user file by assigning the “system” attribute of that particular file.

Here we have the “attrib” syntax à ATTRIB{+attribute/-attribute}{pathname}[/S[/D]}

And with the above command there are different parameters and switches so lets see what they are.

+/- à to enact or to cancel the specified attribute.

à include any process folder.

à   searching through the entire path. Sub-folders inclusive.

Attribute à ( already explained above)

Pathnameà path where target folder is located.

This here is the proper syntax for the attribute command:

ATTRIB{+R/-R}{+A/-A}{+S/-S}{+H/-H}{+I/-I}{drive:}{path}{/S[/D][/L]}
After knowing all of the basics, now let’s give it a shot and try to see how we can remove a virus from  USB, SD card etc.  using CMD prompt.

For example, let’s transfer an autorun.inf virus from my USB to my D drive and delete the virus from the D drive.

Step 1. Open command prompt from search and run as administrator.

run-cmd

Step 2. Type D and hit enter

change-drive-using-cmd

Step 3. Type “attrib” and press enter. This command lists out all files inside the current drive and you will clearly see autorun.inf virus listed.

type-attrib

Step 4. At this stage to remove the virus using CMD, type into command prompt “attrib –r –a –s –h *.* “ And press enter. This in turn will remove the read only, archive, system and hidden file attribute from all the files.

-r is for removing read only files

-a is for removing the archive file

-s is for removing system file

-h is for removing hidden file

*.* is for files with all different types of file extensions.

attrib-command

Keep in mind that this command only removes the different attributes from different files. However, the files will still exist. And therefore we must delete the virus permanently. To delete the virus, type “delete autorun.inf” and press enter. The file will get deleted from the current drive immediately.

Visual C++ Team Blog

Are you currently developing your C++ projects in an older version of Visual Studio? If your reasons for avoiding the all-new features in VS 2017 are covered next, then read on: this post may have good news for you.

Help! I am stuck!

There are many reasons why you may want to use Visual Studio 2017 in your day-to-day job. Just to name a few:

You can download Visual Studio 2017 and upgrade your projects today. We know however that there are projects for which a full upgrade is not a trivial decision.

  • Are your binaries tied to an older version of CRT that for maintenance reasons you can’t upgrade?
  • Are you dependent on older (non-conformant) language constructs that would break if you move to a more recent compiler?
  • Are you relying on 3rd party libraries compiled with a specific version of the VC toolset?
  • Are you exposing C++ APIs for other parties to consume, so you’re restricted to a specific version of the C++ compiler & CRT?

If these cover your reasons for not using VS 2017, I’m going to let you in on a little secret: you can start using Visual Studio 2017 today without having to change your toolset version (i.e. the current compiler and the matching target CRT).

Well, it’s not really a secret that Visual Studio supports native multi-targeting and round-tripping. And we definitely want to shine more light on it:

Native multi-targeting is the ability of the latest IDE to build using toolsets installed by previous versions of Visual Studio (VS 2008 and up).

Round-tripping is the ability of the latest IDE to load projects created by a previous IDE version without making any changes to the project assets (VS 2010 projects and up), thus allowing it to load back in the previous IDE too.

Using these features means that you will be taking advantage of the latest IDE features in VS 2017 without also taking advantage of the latest advances in the C++ compiler, libraries and build tools (e.g. build throughput). Disclaimer: there are IDE features that also depend on the latest toolset capabilities and they will be incompatible with older toolsets: e.g. type information will be missing in the Memory Profiler, and the refactoring operation “Convert to Raw string literals” will generate C++11-compliant code, making it not compile with VS 2012 compilers and older.

Say again? How does Native retargeting work?

Taking advantage of native multi-targeting is as simple as installing Visual Studio 2017 side-by-side with your older Visual Studio version, then opening your existing project in VS 2017.

Visual Studio Icons

During project load, you will receive a prompt on whether you want to upgrade to the latest C++ toolset shipping with VS 2017. Since you want to stay with the older compiler and libraries version, you should decline by hitting the “Cancel” button – you can always upgrade later too if you choose to experiment with the latest C++ toolset.

Now every time you build in VS 2017, the binaries that get generated are fully compatible with the ones you were previously building in your older version, e.g. VS2010. That’s because behind the scenes, VS 2017 delegates the build to the same C++ compiler and consumes the same libraries that your older IDE ships with.

A new dilemma: should I let my team know? About project round-tripping

Because you chose not to upgrade your project, VS 2017 doesn’t make any changes to your project or solution. So the fact that you’re using VS 2017 in your day-to-day work might as well be your little secret – the rest of your team will continue to use the older version without any clue that you’ve upgraded. It’s kind of a big secret since your colleagues won’t know how you suddenly increased your productivity so much!

So, can you really keep this a secret? Once the cat is out of the bag, everyone could be using VS 2017 around the office — our whole team here in Redmond agrees that’s a good thing (and… we’re not biased at all)

PS: What you’ll notice is that everyone in the team will see the same upgrade prompt the first time they load the project in VS 2017. So if you want to avoid an accidental pull request that upgrades all your projects coming from the enthusiastic junior member in the office down the hall, you can inhibit the upgrade prompt completely before spreading the news by following the instructions in this Connect report “VS 2013 keeps upgrade information in the .suo file” (it works in VS 2017 too).

What about Visual Studio 2008?

Visual Studio 2008 had its own dedicated build system for C++ called VCBuild. With VS 2010, C++ moved to MSBuild so because of this change, to get your VS 2008 projects building in VS 2017 requires a bit more work. The end result will be similar as above: you will be using the VS 2017 IDE and generate binaries that are fully compatible with binaries created from the VS 2008 IDE.

First, in addition to installing VS 2017 you also need to install VS 2010 on the same machine with your VS 2008. This ensures that the appropriate MSBuild scripts that enable targeting VS 2008 are installed (they only ship with VS 2010).

Second, you will need to put your VS 2008 solution and projects through the upgrade process. When you get the below upgrade prompt, please review the information presented.

pic_upgrade2008

Now is also a good time to create a backup copy of your VS 2008 .sln file as it will get overwritten by the VS 2017 .sln file (if you’re only experimenting with VS 2017, maybe you may even want to upgrade the backup copy instead of the master copy under source control). When you click “OK”, the wizard will create VC project files with a new extension (.vcxproj) side-by-side with the existing .vcproj files, so as long as you’re taking care of the .sln file, the upgrade will be impact-free for your existing VS 2008 projects.

When the upgrade completes, you will get an upgrade log report. If there are any errors or warnings for any of your projects, you should review the log carefully and make sure that you acknowledge the changes presented and follow up on any action items listed there. For more information on the upgrade log report check out the C++ Project Upgrade Guide.

Now that the project upgrade is complete, your project actually targets the VS 2017 latest toolset. You need to go back to VS 2008 as a last step: open the project properties (right click in Solution Explorer on the project and select Properties) and under General, change Platform Toolset to “Visual Studio 2008 (v90)” instead of “Visual Studio 2017 (v141)”.

C++ Property Pages - List of all C++ Platform Toolsets

After this change, the binaries built by VS 2017 will be built using the same VS 2008 compiler and libraries as the ones building inside the VS 2008 IDE.

Still stuck?

While we’d like to see all of you using the latest C++ toolset too, we know that migrating your code and dependencies takes time and depending on where you are in your project lifecycle, it can add too much risk. However, we hope you find this refresher on native multi-targeting and round-tripping of C++ projects useful, and a good reminder that this shouldn’t hold you back from taking advantage of the IDE improvements in the latest Visual Studio IDE.

To wrap things up, here it is – the link to download Visual Studio 2017. << Click right here!

Is there anything else holding you back? We want to know what other reasons may block you from upgrading today. Let us know by adding your comments below or by contacting us directly at vcupgrade@microsoft.com for a more detailed conversation.




6 Valid Reasons You Should Stop Using Facebook In 2018-By Techxerl Staff

Mark Zuckerberg changed the history of social networking on February 2004 with his very innovative and popular application i.e.” Facebook”. Facebook changed our lives in various ways isn’t it? Now, finding your long lost friends, relatives and loved ones isn’t really a big task. You can easily login with your id and password and can search for the person you are looking for and if you specifically want to search for a person in a particular region that also you can do with the help of the different kinds of filters available. Not only that, also there are n numbers of features available to make your life more connected with the outside world. Fascinating, right? But I’m not here for, to brag about Facebook and discuss all the advantages of using it. I’m here to make you understand why you should stop using Facebook in 2018. I do have reasons for it and I think you would also agree with me after reading this.

  1. They allow organizations to track you online

Facebook Enables companies to track your data

Do you know, whenever you login with your account, you also allow various organizations or companies reach to you. They use this information to show you some advertisements, so that they can sell things to you. Facebook also keeps track records of the websites and apps that so that they can provide you with the relevant ads. Not only that, they also show you notifications and statuses based on that only. You can check for these kinds of apps in your settings and see whether or not you want them to track you.

  1. Private messages is a myth

Private messages is a myth

Mark Zuckerberg in his recent interview has mentioned that apart from focusing on public content, Facebook is also trying to indulge in some private content too. You may feel that private conversations are insignificant, but they do provide some information to the developers about how do you make use of technology and also about your field of interests based on the posts or messages you share. Conversations are tapped and recorded by the companies which share information to the advertisers about your mental or some personal history, which if gets into a wrong hand can destroy your future.

  1. Over sharing becomes a habit

facebook habbit

Not only Facebook other social networking sites also have a detrimental effect on your privacy. Think of it as, how great it would have been if during sharing a particular post you can also take care of your security instead of compromising with it. Even if you have locked down your privacy, still there is a variety of content you shouldn’t post on Facebook. It’s a very bad idea to share any kind of posts that are offensive and negative or posts that show too many personal details in any respect. You never know who can take advantage of your situation or put you in some difficult situation.

  1. Best are the posts which are not meant for everyone

Over the past few years, people have started to abandon the use of Facebook. They generally use them to see what others are posting. People are now preferring apps that provide a more intimate connection as Facebook doesn’t allow to have more intimate conversations because if we want to share something that will be delivered to everybody with whom you are connected on Facebook since middle school.  Most users use apps and platform that delete their messages and shared photos automatically like they did in Snapchat. At least you are the master of your own privacy.

  1. Data overburden can lead to negative effects

By now you have already realized that Facebook sells ad space to the companies requiring it or companies who wants to reach you and makes money thereby. Facebook silently analyzes your profile, your browsing history and your messages to figure out important information about you and peacefully sharing it without even letting us know. These information can be very dangerous as they can be used as a weapon used against you. Various organizations and companies gather information online to figure out what are up to in your personal and professional life and this can deliberately affect your chances of getting hired.

  1. Over spending of time

time spending on mobile

And now last but not the least you should quit Facebook so that you can avoid overspending your time on Facebook and do something productive. I definitely agree that Facebook provides a means to connect with your friends and family, and this is seriously very intimidating and fascinating, but it does take a huge toll on our time. We can never know when we are getting trapped in the magical world of Facebook and once trapped, it is very difficult to come out of it.

It is easy to share things on Facebook without even thinking once. If you are feeling low just write a post and someone will be there to cheer you up but the problem arises when your employer sees such kinds of post and starts judging you accordingly. That is why I think you should quit Facebook so that you regain your privacy. Why let some normal friend, your employer or as mentioned earlier, Facebook, to indulge in your personal matters and make inferences from it. So, at last, I would just say delete your account and manage your control in a more efficient way as you want it to be managed.

Pay Per Click

What Does Pay Per Click Means And How PPC Works?

PPC stands for Pay per click and also known as CPC (cost per click). Both the terms have the same meaning. For representing any advertising agency name or Method of advertising we normally use word PPC and For the rate decision term used is CPC. PPC is one the most famous and biggest term in Internet marketing. There are two different parties Advertiser and Publisher Who depends On PPC advertising. Advertiser use PPC advertising for branding their products and services by advertising their online businesses to reach more targeted audience within a specific budget. For Publishers of Web sites and Blogs, PPC holds the best position for the major source of the online earning. Make Money from Pay per click ads is basic and easiest way for a startup who don’t have deep knowledge about marketing yet.
PPC advertising is playing a main role in building a relationship between two companies, websites or blogs. Advertiser depends upon Publisher for getting visitors and Publisher depend on Advertiser to earn revenue by ads placements. Some of the Big brands like Google, Yahoo and Facebook having a major source of earning is through PPC ads.

How is PPC Advertising Relationship Works?

PPC is a type of an online advertising technique. If you want to understand more about Advertising then I recommend reading about How Online Advertising Works? PPC is the easiest way to drive traffic from one website to another on the bases of clicks. PPC requires minimum two different parties or websites in which one website or Party act as Advertiser and other activities as Publisher

An advertiser wants more traffic and customers on their site or product to grow there business. So they adopt CPC based method to pay money to publisher site for every click on Ad.  In that way, an advertiser has to pay for every successful unique click on their product link or banner.

A publisher is a person who has any website or blog with traffic and wants to generate revenue from visitors. So publisher sells ad space or use any third party ad network for ad placement on their site. For every click on ad banner publisher which generate earning based on CPC rate.

Before further detail about both types, lets see how CPC or PPC rate works on the bases of simple formula

For Advertiser:-

Cost Per Click = Total Advertising Cost / Total Ad Clicks

For Publisher:-

Cost Per Click= Total Earning / Total Ad Clicks

Its is based on the total budget set by the advertiser and on that bases how many total clicks they need. The results is in the form of every click rate which is CPC.

 

Different Types of PPC (Pay per Click) Advertising

Mostly PPC ads are based on two methods Flat Rate PPC and Bid Rate PPC.

Flat Rate PPC

In short and simple words if the advertiser setup the fix rates of CPC. That type of ads is consider as Flat rate CPC. It mostly takes place in direct advertising or even many third-party ad networks available. So the fixed rate CPC will be provided for total clicks on ad banner. Normally it is beneficial in direct advertising relationship.

Bid Rate PPC

This technique is mostly used by big third-party networks. Because in third-party ads there is no direct relation between advertiser and publisher. Agencies having many different advertisers and Publisher with websites in different niches. So Agencies rotate ads automatically and fill ad banner with a highest paying and which depends on visitor location, interest, niche and many other factors. So the Bidding is done for highest rates according to these factors.  Rate may vary because relevant and irrelevant ads will be displayed on web pages. The overall performance of the bid-based network is good but earning for publisher totally depend on website or blog niche.

 

How Advertiser Grow Their Business With PPC Ads ?

PPC based advertising is the traditional and basic method to promote and get traffic online.  PPC adverting depend on two different parties, an Advertiser or a Publisher both take its benefit equally. Advertiser setup the total budget and approx amount traffic with be generated according to the CPC rate. Which makes an advertiser clear that how much money is required for total amount visitor they need and will it be profitable for business. For PPC based advertising you need to concentrate on following factors Like

  • How many budgets You Have?
  • How Much we want to spend for total Visitors?  Means setup a CPC rate for every click.
  • Target users according to Interest, behaviour, GEO location. Try to make a better mechanism to adjust the best CPC for these different factors.
  • Make Sure that Revenue generated should be more than your expenditure on the PPC campaign.

So if you want to advertise your brand, website, blog, services page, landing page or any other product. You can need to join as an Advertiser on Ad exchange networks or agencies. For a better startup, i recommend going for these 3, 4 for PPC companies.

How Can Publisher Earn Money With PPC Ads ?

On another of a side of an advertiser, their is a Publisher.  Website or blog which place ads and they earn from then is a publisher mean who publish and promote ad unit.

Muhammad Ali Jinnah's Daughter Dina Wadia's Funeral In New York On Friday

MUMBAI:  The funeral of Dina Wadia, daughter and the only child of Pakistan's founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah, shall take place in New York on Friday, official sources here said.

Wadia, 98, passed away at her home in New York on Thursday, surrounded by many of her family members and relatives.

They included her son and Wadia Group Chairman Nusli N. Wadia, daughter Diana N. Wadia, grandsons Ness and Jeh Wadia, Jeh's wife Celina and two great-grandchildren Jah and Ella Wadia.

Quoting historian Stanley Wolpert, community website Parshi Khabar said Dina was born around the midnight of August 14-15, 1919 in a cinema theatre in London where her parents, Jinnah and Rattanbai, were watching a film.

"Oddly enough, precisely 28 years to the day and hour before the birth of Jinnah's other offspring, Pakistan," Wolpert wrote in his acclaimed biography on the founder of Pakistan 'Jinnah of Pakistan' (1982).


Dina was estranged from her father for many years, after she married a leading Mumbai Parsi industrialist, Neville Wadia, mostly lived in Mumbai, before moving to the US.

Keeping a low profile all through, she visited Pakistan only twice in her lifetime - first on the death of her father and later in 2004, during the era of President Parvez Musharraf.

"This has been very sad and wonderful for me. May his (Jinnah's) dream for Pakistan come true," said her tribute in the visitors' book at the Quaid-e-Azam Mausoleum in Karachi.

Samsung patents a pressure-sensitive in-display fingerprint reader for its upcoming Galaxy Note 9

Samsung patents a pressure-sensitive in-display fingerprint reader for its upcoming Galaxy Note 9

Samsung drew the rage of many of its users when it decided to kill the Home Button on its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8. The users are largely complaining about the awkwardly placed fingerprint reader next to the camera on the back of the Galaxy S8 line-up making the South Korean giant think of a solution.

According to SamMobile, Samsung has filed for a patent with Korea’s Intellectual Property Rights Information Service (KIPRIS), the country’s patent office, for a pressure-sensitive in-display fingerprint reader for its upcoming device next year. While there were reports of people risking the inclusion of new pressure-sensitive in-display fingerprint reader in the Galaxy S9 and S9+, a recent tweet from a former Samsung executive indicated that this feature could be introduced in its next 2018 flagship smartphone, Galaxy Note 9.

This only confirms the high chances of a pressure-sensitive fingerprint reader being integrated within the display of a Galaxy Note 9, as Samsung already wanted to include this feature in its recent S8 smartphone releases. However, Samsung was not happy with the technology, as the brightness of the display was uneven when it was test on a Galaxy Note 8’s display, which prompted the tech giant to postpone this idea before the release of the S8 line-up.

Samsung had hit a low due to the debacle of Galaxy Note 7 but was revived at the right time with its recent Galaxy Note 8 release. Apparently, Samsung would want to play it safe and hit the right buttons when it launches Galaxy Note 9. Whether or not will the pressure-sensitive in-display fingerprint reader be included in Galaxy Note 9 only time will tell. Until then, keep watching this space for more updates!

Wildlife colonises man-made rockpools

Mini rock pools are being created by scientists trying to protect sea life from the boom in manmade sea defenses.

Aberystwyth University researchers have drilled holes the size of a family baked bean can into a breakwater made of smooth granite blocks.

The blocks had attracted few intertidal creatures.

But the new holes were swiftly colonized by fish, anemones and important reef-building honeycomb worms.

The scientists hope that the thousands of miles of man-made sea walls under construction to hold back sea levels will incorporate wildlife-friendly features like this.

They have also designed an experimental form of concrete, dubbed Reefcrete.

The hope is that this material will attract creatures to colonize sea walls.

Conventional sea walls are often inhospitable for sea life because they are smooth; they don't trap water at low tide (unlike a normal rocky shore).

They are often also too alkaline.

DrillingImage copyrightABERYSTWYTH UNIVERSITY

Image captionDrilling artificial rockpools A simple idea

The Reefcrete is made with less cement than usual. It is held together by hemp fibres which act in a similar way to steel re-enforcing bars in buildings.

Tests so far have shown that Reefcrete encourages more seaweed to grow than regular sea walls. The seaweed provides a home for a greater variety of animals.

Research is continuing to see how the hemp fibres stand up to the test of time.

Another form of Reefcrete uses waste shells from a local seafood shelling factory.

Discarded shell are classed as waste and must be disposed of in the landfill or burned.

The scientific team suggests they could be incorporated into sea walls as a binding material instead.

The shells would create a rougher surface more suitable for sea life.

Whilst the Reefcrete tests continue, the clear success story so far has been the holes in the rocks - a project begun three-and-a-half years ago by a PhD student, Ally Evans.

She told BBC News: "I'm really happy with the outcomes of this research. It shows that even simple things like drilling holes in boulders can make a difference for marine life."

Her supervisor, Dr. Pippa Moore, added: "There is a real global issue of governments creating sea defenses, seawalls and other coastal infrastructure that are less good for wildlife than the nature they are replacing.

"We wanted to see if you changed the complexity and increased the number of habitats on this boulder whether that would increase the number of plants and animals that could survive on it.

"It's definitely worked. What happens is that these rocks are covered at high tide and the little holes trap the water when the sea retreats. It's incredibly simple - and innovative.

"Just by creating an area where water is retained you can make it more like a rocky shore and less like an artificial structure."

Dr. Moore has been discussing the findings with the firm proposing the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon scheme.

"We don't just do this for science's sake," she said. "We want to implement this in structures that are being built. We've been talking to companies - and the idea seems to be catching on."

An Insight To Deep Web And Dark Web – Everything You Need To Know

Deep Web And Dark Web – In this age of high web technology, the usage of the web has increased tremendously. Thus search engines are on their ways to update their existing algorithms along with introducing new ones in order to keep pace with changing trends. Special protocols along with software are taken into usage for convenience.

What does Deep Web refer to?

Now, terms like deep web and dark web seem to be used very much commonly. But can you state the actual difference between them? For your kind information deep web refers to the web that holds its existence into those places that are beyond the reach of search engines. It comprises of those items that have not been listed by Google & Company. They are:

  • Dynamic content
  • Databases
  • Exceptional forums
  • Non-spidered websites

The deep web is presumed to be related to something awesome in the web, similar to the notorious Silk Road black market. But it holds a difference! Everything in case of deep web is not at all bad or illegal. As it does not get indexed by search engines, they hardly turn up when searched.

Examples of Deep Web

Some of the best examples of deep web include:

  • Emails
  • Online banking transactions
  • Tweets
  • Messages on Instagram and many more.

These are something that is accessed probably on a regular basis. None of them can be turned up on the web via any of the search engines. Instead they are hidden under the shelter of a paywall or protected via password. In short, anything that is difficult to fetch on the web surface via a search engine may be considered as a part of deep web.

Web Browsers to Access Deep Web

Thus it may be easily inferred that the deep web may be also known to be an invisible or hidden web. But it may be easily accessed via web browsers like:

  • Google Chrome
  • Safari
  • Mozilla Firefox etc.

How Does Dark Web Differ from Deep Web?

You must have also heard about dark web. Rite! Let’s get ourselves introduced to the same and get to know the way it differs from deep web. Like any web-like network, the dark webtakes into usage proprietary protocols. Sometimes it also requires special types of software to gain access. At present there are numerous networks, Freenet and TOR that fall under this category.

To be a bit precise, dark web cannot be accessed by taking into usage standard web browsers. Do you know why it is also known as the underbelly of the Internet? Dark webcomprises of those particular websites that are involved in the selling of illegal products like drugs. Also they are known to house websites that deal with unwanted stuffs like child pornography and weapons.

How to Indicate Websites of Dark Web?

Description: Deep Web vs Dark Web

It is taken into usage by internet activists and journalists in majority to remain anonymous at circumvent restrictions at the time of passing or gathering any type of information. It is especially for countries where the web remains in a highly censored state. Search engines like DuchDuckGo and others that are concerned about their privacy also run their services on dark web for convenience.

Websites residing on the Dark web are generally suffixed with “onion” as domain. You may easily access them by simply employing the TOR browser, exact URL or other similar devices like The Hidden Wiki. Though it is not at all illegal to access dark web, still you need to beware. It is not as fancy and interactive as other web surfaces.

Is Dark Web an Evil?

Though the actual difference between dark web and deep web is clear, one thing is for sure that none of the tools on the web are bad in terms of essence. Instead the way it is being utilized makes a huge difference.

Top 15 Methods How Hackers Can Hack Facebook Accounts & How To Protect From Them?

1. Hack Facebook account using key logging

Key logging is presumably the easiest way to hack a Facebook account password. A key logger is a program that records the keystrokes on a computer. It does this by monitoring a user’s input and keeping a log of all keys that are entered. The log may be saved to a file or even at times sent to another machine over a network or the internet. Key logging is a very much cunning method that even people with extensive computer knowledge have fallen victim to it.

This is how you can avoid key loggers

  • Scan your USB drives for virus
  • Always download software from trusted sites
  • Always maintain a good antivirus and internet security to avoid key loggers

Facebook pishing

2. Hack Facebook account password by phishing

Phishing is a very popular method used for hacking Facebook accounts. Perhaps because its victims are always unsuspecting. However, there are various ways of carrying out a phishing attack. The most common one is where a hacker creates a replica of a login page which looks like the real Facebook page. The victim will then think it’s the usual login page therefore entering in his login details. Once the victim is logged in through the fake page, the victim’s email address and password are stored in a text file and it’s all done. The hacker has his prize. The login details.

How to avoid phishing;

  • Never login your Facebook account on other devices
  • Use chrome since it identifies the phishing page
  • Avoid emails that ask you to log into your Facebook account.

3. Hack Facebook account password by session hijacking

Session hijacking is where the hacker steals the victim’s browser cookie which is used in authentication of the user on a website and after getting the cookie, the hacker can then access the victim’s account. Session hijacking is mostly common when accessing Facebook on an HTTP (non-secure) connection and it is widely used on LAN and Wi-Fi connections.

4. Saved passwords from browsers

Most of us are fond of granting permission to our browsers to save our usernames and passwords on our devices be it a computer or smartphone.

Anyone can hack your Facebook account from your browser’s password manager. Because of that never save your password on your device. For you may never know when the info will be hijacked.

How to avoid against hijacking

  • Never save login credentials on your browser
  • Always use a strong password on your computer

Session hacking

5. Sidejacking with firesheep

Firesheep is mostly used to carry out sidejacking attacks. However, firesheep only works when the attacker and victim are on the same Wi-Fi network. A sidejacking attack can similarly be looked at as HTTP session hijacking though it’s more directed towards Wi-Fi users.

Firesheep

6. Mobile phone hacking

As we all know, highest number of Facebook users access Facebook through their phone the hacker can gain access to the victims Facebook account. There exists many mobile phone spying software. The most popular ones being mobile spy and spy phone gold. So better watch out.

How to safeguard yourself

7. DNS spoofing

With DNS spoofing, the hacker, if on the same network with the victim, can change the original page and replace it with his own fake page and easily gain access to the victims Facebook account.

How to safeguard against spoofing

  • Always configure it to be secure against cache poisoning
  • Manage your DNS servers securely
  • Separate the authoritative function from resolving function using different servers

DNS spoofing

8. USB hacking

A hacker can get physical access to your computer and insert a USB programmed to automatically extract or retrieve saved passwords in the internet browser or any other information the hacker may need.

How to protect yourself;

  • Insert trusted USB devices into your computer
  • Avoid sharing your computer
  • Don’t purchase second hand USB devices
  • Scan USB devices once plugged in

USB hacking

9. Man in the middle attacks

With this method, it’s very tricky when the hacker and victim are on the same LAN and on a switch based network. The hacker places himself between the client and the server, or he could act as a default gateway and capture all the traffic in between.

How to safeguard against this

  • Use VPN services
  • Use a proxy server to access the internet
  • Use good antivirus with good firewall options

Man in middle attacks

10. Botnets

Basically, botnets are networks made of remote controlled computers or bots. These bots have been infected with malware that allows them to be remotely controlled. It’s expensive to set up botnets and this makes them to be minimally used in cases of hacking Facebook accounts. Some very popular botnets include spyeye and zeus.

How to safeguard against botnets;

  • Keep all your software up to date
  • Use strong passwords and keep them secret
  • Ensure that your firewall is always on
  • Use flash drives cautiously

Botnets

11. Social engineering

Social engineering is a simple method that’s based on collecting as much info from the victims as possible. The information may include date of birth, phone number, etc. once a hacker gains access to this info and somehow it’s the same info used as a password, then the hacker can get access into the Facebook account effortlessly.

 

How to avoid this

  • Never share personal info via email or phone
  • Avoid links from unknown or suspicious sites
  • Block USB devices to minimize risk of baiting

social engineering

12. Email ID hacking

With this method, the hacker only needs to access the connected email id of any account and then reset the Facebook password manually.

How to avoid this

  • Enable 2 step authentification in your Gmail account
  • Use strong passwords
  • Avoid entering email on scrupulous sites

Email Id Hacking

13. Viewing masked passwords

In case your browser saves your Facebook login credentials. This means you are prone to being hacked by almost anyone since they can view your masked passwords (****). The hacker just needs to tweak a few set ups in the browser and he will gain access to your password eventually. This indicates that you should never leave your computer on a sign up page of any site. Also, never save your Facebook or other login credentials in the browser.

 

14. Hacking Wi-Fi network

If you have a Wi-Fi router, it’s better to set it up with a strong password. If you use a weak password to set up the router security, a hacker can hack your Wi-Fi network and hijack all your internet traffic which can let eventually expose your Facebook account.

How to avoid this;

  • Avoid free Wi-Fi or public Wi-Fi
  • Always use VPN to access Wi-Fi
  • Always change your Wi-Fi password

Wifi

15. Logout

Unfortunately people love logging in but don’t like logging out. That’s why very many Facebook users never log out their Facebook accounts from their computer. With your Facebook account logged in, anyone can access your Facebook. Therefore, always endeavor to log out every time you are done using your account.

Logout

With all that information, I assume you will know how to protect your accounts better and safeguard from the malicious hackers. If you have anything to add, please inform us in the comments section.

Semalt Uzmanlar Dijital Pazarlamanin SEO Ile Iliskisini Açikliyor

SEO, Arama Motoru Optimizasyonu, web sitelerinin arama motoru sonuçlarinda daha üst siralarda yer almak için kullandigi bir tekniktir. Bir arama motoruna herhangi bir sey yazip 'enter' tusuna basarsaniz, sorgunuzda bulunan anahtar kelimeleri içeren arama sonuçlarinin bir listesini alirsiniz. Sitenin sonuçlari, ilk olanlar ile en alakali ve digerinde aradiginiz bilgileri içerecek sekilde görüntülenir. Bir web sitesini, arama motorlarinda yüksek siralamaya yönlendirmek için kullanilan prosedür, SEO'larin, müsterilerin çevrimiçi olan sirketleri için önemli olan tekniklerin karmasikligi olarak bilinir. Bu terimleri arayan insanlarin önemli bir kismi üst sitelerde topraklarda. Bu sekilde, SEO bir yol gösterici olarak görev yapiyor. Trafigi artirir ve daha sonra sitenize yapilan dönüsümleri artirir.

Öte yandan Dijital pazarlama, müsterileri elde etmek, sayilarini artirmak veya ziyaretçileri müsterilere dönüstürmek için tüm entegre çevrimiçi pazarlama hizmetlerine atifta bulunan yaygin bir araçtir. Etkileyici pazarlamasi, içerik pazarlamasi, SEO, çevrimiçi reklamcilik, ürün gazeteciligi veya sosyal medya pazarlamasi gibi birden çok kanal, sirketlerin satislarini artirmak için dijital pazarlama yöntemlerini kullanmasinin yollarini arar. Hepsi internetin markalarin müsteriyle baglanti kurmasina yardimci olurken pazarlama programlarina yardimci olur ve kampanyalar hedeflerine ulasir. Bu açidan, SEO'nun dijital pazarlamanin bir araci oldugu açiktir.

Semalt Digital Services'in Müsteri Basari Yöneticisi olan Jason Adler, SEO ve dijital pazarlama arasindaki baglantiyi açikliyor.

SEO ve Dijital Pazarlama birçok benzerligi paylasabilir ancak bazi önemli farkliliklari vardir. Bir SEO uzmani tasarim, içerik ve meta URL'leri gibi arama motorlarinin görünürlügü için daha fazla trafik ve nihayet daha fazla gelir için en uygun olan bazi özellikleri elde etmede deneyime sahiptir. Öte yandan, bir dijital pazarlama yöneticisi, bir SEO uzmaniyla, özellikle bir reklam kampanyasinda, bir sirketin hedef nis için Internet'te görünür olmasini saglamak için birlikte çalisir.

Dijital pazarlamacilar, müsterileri bir kampanyada bulunan bir marka veya hizmeti bulmaya yönlendiren bir araç olarak SEO'ya bagimlidir. Dijital pazarlama, billboardlar, mesajlasma, kitle iletisim araçlari veya hatta yönlendirmeler gibi diger alternatifleri kullanir. SEO kesinlikle internete dayalidir ve özellikle web sitesi içeriginden cümleler içeren sorgulari takip eden arama motorlarindan müsterileri getirmeye yöneliktir. SEO bir web sitesini ziyaret eden kisilerin sayisini artirmaya odaklandigindan, dijital pazarlama genellikle müsterilerin firmanin genel görünürlügünü artirmakla ilgilidir.

SEO ve dijital pazarlama arasindaki iliski küçük ancak birbirinden farkli. SEO agirlikli olarak anahtar kelime arama, tanitim ve web gelistirme ile ilgili konularda yer almaktadir. SEO bilgi ve arama motorlarinda bir web sitesi rütbesinin tasarimi optimize içerir. Bu süreç, firmalarin çevrimiçi varligini almalarini ve organik (ücretli olmayan) trafigin avantajlarindan yararlanmalarini saglar. Bir web sitesi, dogrudan onlardan trafik kazanarak rakiplerini yenebilir. Dijital pazarlama, daha iyi müsteri odakli gelisme için bir markanin tanitimini yapmak için çevrimiçi veya çevrimdisi olmak üzere tüm pazarlama kampanyalarina atif yapan kolektif bir terimdir. Hem SEO hem de dijital pazarlama el ele tutusur ve birçok isletme online olarak gelisir. Diger perspektiflerde hem SEO hem de dijital pazarlama tüketicilerin bir markanin çevrimiçi varligini artirarak onu bulmalarini sagliyor.



Expert Van Semalt: Google SEO Vs. Bing SEO

Google wordt beschouwd als een SEO-kampioen met de meeste bedrijven die voor deze zoekmachine optimaliseren. Desalniettemin is de SEO-strategie die door Google wordt gebruikt, geneigd om die door Bing aangenomen, te emuleren en daarom de vraag te stellen of organisaties ook voor Bing SEO moeten optimaliseren. Yahoo en Bing domineren ongeveer 30 procent van het marktaandeel en kunnen dus niet worden onderschat met betrekking tot optimalisatie. SEO ranking parameters voor Google en Bing hebben verschillende verschillen en overeenkomsten van zorg.

De volgende factoren, voorgesteld door Alexander Peresunko, de Customer Success Manager van Semalt, onderscheiden Google van Bing:

Waarom is Bing een probleem om over te doen?

Optimalisatie op Bing geeft u een concurrentievoordeel, aangezien de meeste bedrijven beschouwen alleen voor Google te optimaliseren. Bing en Yahoo domineren momenteel een 30% van de zoekopdrachten en dus geven u een overhand om potentiële klanten te verwerven, die uw concurrenten kunnen negeren.

Met behulp van Bing en Yahoo kan u ook een demografie maken van mensen die om verschillende redenen minder gebruik maken van Google. Dit hangt af van het doelgroep, delen van het land en huishoudens. Aangezien Google vaak regelmatig updates uitvoert, is het bedrijf altijd in staat om de inhoud ervan te verspreiden naar een breed publiek op Yahoo en Bing, omdat het zich streeft naar afstemming met Google-updates.

Hoe verschilt Google SEO van Bing SEO?

Uitgaande van een recente SearchMetrics analyse, hieronder zijn enkele van de belangrijke Bing SEO ranking factoren:

  • Topbedrijven worden meestal hoger gerangschikt als bij Google.
  • Sociale signalen zijn nauw verwant aan hogere rankings.
  • Backlink nummers tonen nauwe associaties met een hogere ranking.
  • Kwaliteit en relevante inhoud zijn cruciaal voor zoekrangschappen.
  • Één pagina technische parameters hebben belangrijke rol.

De deskundige van Semalt geeft ook een uitleg van bovenstaande factoren naast anderen die je zou moeten overwegen bij het optimaliseren voor Bing.

1. Website Type en Brand Partialiteiten

In tegenstelling tot Google heeft Bing geen problemen bij het onderscheiden van merken van aangesloten concurrenten. Bing begunstigt ook oude platforms met officiële domeinmarkeringen zoals .edu of .gov, die impliceren dat Bing zich richt op resultaten die relevant worden geacht.

2. Sociale Indicatoren

In vergelijking met Google, benadrukt Bing op sociale media-indicatoren, wat resulteert in meer tweets, aandelen en voor strategisch gepositioneerde resultaten. Google integreert nog sociale platforms succesvol in hun zoekresultaten.

3. Backlinks

In tegenstelling tot Google, voor een pagina om zijn ranking te behouden in de index van Bing, moet er minimaal één externe link erin bestaan.

4. Locatie en inhoud

Kwaliteit en relevantie van de inhoud resulteren in een hogere ranking voor zowel Bing als Google, maar de voormalige heeft beter personeel om sites te herkennen die Flash toepassen, die niet in Google bestaat. Bing levert ook resultaten van kleine ondernemingen, terwijl Google zich richt op gevestigde bedrijven.

5. Technische parameters

Met betrekking tot het uitrichten van interne pagina's heeft Bing een sterke relatie met thuispagina's in vergelijking met Google. Bing is ook afhankelijk van trefwoorden in metatags en paginatitels, terwijl Google meer instinctueel is over het perspectief van een pagina.

Conclusie

U moet rekening houden met de verschillen tussen Google en Bing ranking factoren voordat u beslissingen neemt die gericht zijn op het verbeteren van de rang van uw site op beide zoekmachines.



Semalt Spiega Perché I Collegamenti In Entrata Sono Fondamentali Per Il Tuo SEO

Molte volte quando Google scarica informazioni per le sue procedure, che regola la classifica dei siti web, raccomando ai clienti di non apportare modifiche a niente. La nostra azienda non è mai stata coinvolta in tattiche di spazzatura per i motori di ricerca come la creazione di collegamenti insignificanti di bassa qualità dei siti web in arrivo. La creazione di contenuti esclusivi e link di qualità è sempre stata la nostra motivazione.

Tuttavia, ci occupiamo dei casi che quando i clienti vengono a noi dicendo che dopo i cambiamenti di Google rilasciati, come il Penguin 2.1 valuta, ha influenzato le loro classifiche. I clienti di solito pensano che si riferiscano ad alcune difficoltà con il loro processo di successo, ma scopriamo che la maggior parte di loro ha avuto collegamenti inadeguati creati dalla precedente società di SEO a cui lavoravano.

Andrew Dyhan, il responsabile del successo dei clienti di Semalt Digital Services, spiega perché i cattivi collegamenti in entrata hanno un impatto cruciale sulla classifica del sito.

I collegamenti in entrata sono un elemento essenziale per la determinazione dei siti web classificati in Google. In precedenza, un sito web con il maggior numero di link in arrivo potrebbe essere superiore a quello di un sito web concorrente con backlinks più bassi. Le aziende creerebbero un sacco di collegamenti in entrata indipendentemente dalla loro qualità o se avessero un senso dato che Google non si preoccupava di rapporti tra i link ei siti web. Google poi rivoluzionò. Panda è stata introdotta per la prima volta all'inizio del 2011, poi il Penguin è stato rilasciato più tardi nel 2012. All'improvviso, la qualità dei collegamenti in entrata ha assunto la quantità e, contemporaneamente, le aziende che hanno partecipato alla raccolta di un gran numero di backlinks si sono impegnati in tecniche sbagliate durante la creazione di contenuti. Secondo esperto di Semalt Andrew Dyhan, uno specialista di marketing online, quello che Panda ha iniziato è stato rifinito dal pinguino. Molti siti web hanno assistito a un drastico calo delle loro classifica, delle entrate e del traffico, e questo è dove uno dei nostri clienti è stato colto. Questo è stato un grande stupore per i webmaster interessati i cui siti sono stati colpiti.

I cattivi collegamenti in arrivo non mostrano l'effetto innocuo finché non hanno fatto molto male un giorno. I clienti non si rendono conto dell'urgenza di sbarazzarsi di backlinks prima di mostrare loro l'analisi del loro conto del cliente. Se nelle prime fasi, eliminando i collegamenti difettosi non è molto tempo e costoso, più tardi quando la perdita sarà abbastanza brutta, la rimozione dei cattivi collegamenti entranti è diventata la priorità urgente che ti renderà pronti a qualsiasi importo. una volta avviato la rimozione dei cattivi collegamenti, ma purtroppo alcuni clienti tendono ad essere disposti a ottenere il risultato immediato.

Per mantenere i clienti, qualsiasi impresa di SEO dovrebbe immediatamente cercare i legami difettosi e eliminarli. Attualmente, riveliamo ai potenziali clienti per quanto riguarda la rimozione di collegamenti difettosi e, se è obbligatoria, li consiglio loro di investire in esso per una prima coppia di parole. La lezione più grande è quella di avere una comprensione di dove Google è diretto e guidare i clienti verso tale itinerario. Per i clienti di SEO, non è più un'opzione per essere aggiornata con la tendenza al fine di riuscire. Inoltre, abbandonare la necessità di ottenere assistenza dalla ditta di SEO molto probabilmente farà il tuo concorrente un vincitore. Pertanto, è importante seguire i professionisti.



Semalt Explique Ce Qui Provoque La Désinformation Dans Le SEO

La majorité des entrepreneurs et des optimiseurs de moteurs de recherche croient que vous pouvez être mis sur liste noire par Google si vous entrez plusieurs mots-clés dans le contenu de votre page d'accueil. En outre, certaines personnes pensent qu'une partie du contenu peut se classer plus haut dans les moteurs de recherche s'ils sont partagés plusieurs fois. Ce sont des vérités trompeuses. Le remplissage des mots clés ne peut pas inciter Google à vous mettre en liste noire. Bien qu'il existe une corrélation que si les informations qui ont été partagées à plusieurs reprises dans les médias sociaux ont de nombreux liens entrants, Google a constamment répudié que les partages sociaux jouent un rôle dans le classement du potentiel. Par conséquent, prétendre que plus de parts se traduit par un classement plus élevé est uniquement une demi-vérité et un fait tout à fait trompeur.

Jack Miller, le responsable de la réussite client de Semalt, explique pourquoi la désinformation est si largement répandue dans le référencement de nos jours et comment l'éviter dans votre pratique.

Le sort des demi-vérités

Il y a plus de chances que les demi-vérités coulent que les mythes absolus. Les mythes et les idées fausses sont normalement destinés à ceux qui ne font pas partie de l'industrie. D'autre part, l'industrie SEO est inondée de demi-vérités car dans la plupart des cas, ils ne travaillent pas avec des faits directs. Le fait que les algorithmes de tous les moteurs de recherche, y compris Google, sont les meilleurs secrets, cela signifie qu'ils ne peuvent pas révéler ce qu'ils considèrent lors du classement des résultats, mais ils ne peuvent donner que des indices. De même, une idée est facilement acceptée si cela semble concevable. Par exemple, un contenu avec plusieurs partages sociaux a de grandes chances de gagner des liens entrants, mais ce n'est peut-être pas le partage de médias sociaux qui exécute le travail. Par conséquent, sur la base des indices appropriés que nous avons sur les parts sociales, c'est une demi-vérité qui est facile à consentir.

Le rythme de l'industrie

Le rythme rapide de l'industrie SEO conduit à la montée de la désinformation. Bien que Google s'adapte à un calendrier de diffusion lent et continu, la montée en puissance, la fourniture de nouvelles technologies et de styles de recherche rendent difficile le rattrapage des optimiseurs de recherche. Cela a divers impacts sur la diffusion de la désinformation, car une information autrefois valide peut facilement devenir obsolète, et les gens fournissent souvent des informations inadéquates dans une tentative désespérée d'être le premier à couvrir une recherche ou une mise à jour récente. Comprendre l'information en bits est important, mais une hypothèse rapide peut entraîner une mauvaise compréhension de ce qui se passe réellement. Enfin, avec la vitesse rapide, une mauvaise information peut se propager dans un court laps de temps et peut être trop tard pour la corriger une fois reçue par la communauté.

Comment éviter la désinformation

  • Références croisées. Toujours comparer les informations provenant de diverses sources. Vérifiez si une autre source hast données qui confirme les informations dans la source actuelle.
  • Rechercher des preuves tangibles. Si un rapport fournit des informations générales, par exemple, recherchez des données statistiques, des faits et des chiffres facilement disponibles dans d'autres entreprises.
  • Vérifiez vos sources. Par exemple, si une personne au hasard donne des informations sur les tactiques de référencement, il sera plus précis si vous cherchez la même chose d'une personne qui a une carrière dans le référencement.
  • Défiez vos hypothèses. Essayez de réfuter certaines de vos croyances afin de vous rapprocher de la vérité ultime.


Semalt Expert Clarifica Erros Típicos De Criação De links

De volta ao dia, foi fácil criar links. Você pode criar links onde quer que seja e como você gostou e ver um aumento correspondente na sua visibilidade como resultado. Hoje em dia, a indústria de construção de links tornou-se complexa, diversificada e difícil de penetrar. Para piorar as coisas, está cheio de mitos e equívocos como resultado dos fantasmas de seu passado. Consequentemente, a maioria dos amadores no negócio de construção de links acaba com os mesmos erros.

Ross Barber, o gerente de sucesso do cliente da Semalt Digital Services, caracteriza os erros de novato comuns para você evitá-los.

1. Priorizando a quantidade sobre a qualidade

Esta é uma tentação que a maioria das pessoas dá em algum momento em seus esforços de construção de links. Um link de alta qualidade é melhor do que potencialmente dezenas de links de baixa qualidade. No entanto, são difíceis de obter links de alta qualidade, enquanto os de baixa qualidade são fáceis de adquirir. Isso configura uma armadilha para você se decidir seguir o caminho da menor resistência.

A quantidade de seus links, no entanto, nunca compensará a má qualidade dos links. Um link de alta qualidade oferece muito mais do que um impulso de SEO. Eles também oferecem benefícios de referência e benefícios de marca.

2. Sobre otimizar texto âncora

Este conceito já foi vital para a criação efetiva de links. Mas isso mudou. Hoje, o texto âncora de seus links de entrada pode ganhar uma penalidade se eles criam um padrão de manipulação ou não natural. Essas penalidades são bastante severas e você pode não conseguir se recuperar de uma. Em vez disso, certifique-se de que seu texto âncora é lógico e útil.

3. Precipitação do conteúdo

Essencialmente, seus links devem ser enquadrados no conteúdo de alta qualidade. Caso apague seu conteúdo ou dê prioridade ao seu link sobre o conteúdo, o mecanismo de pesquisa poderá ver o seu link como suspeito. Em alguns casos, você também corre o risco de ser rejeitado pelos editores também. Certifique-se de que o seu material é digno de ser publicado antes de colocá-lo lá fora.

4. Falha na diversificação

Para ser bem sucedido na construção de links, sua estratégia deve ser tão diversificada quanto possível. Isso significa que você precisa confiar em uma variedade de fontes diferentes e girar seus padrões de distribuição. Pode ser um desafio conseguir um grau de aleatoriedade orquestrada, mas terá que ser feito se você tiver a intenção de ver os benefícios reais de sua cruzada de construção de links.

5. Falha na escala

Este é um erro comum que os amadores fazem uma vez que sua campanha de construção de links começa a ganhar impulso. Se quiser continuar melhorando, você terá que escalar para cima. Isso envolve a criação de melhor conteúdo, o trabalho com fontes de maior qualidade e a construção de links de maior qualidade. Gerenciar este processo de desenvolvimento pode ser tributável, mas a última coisa que você quer fazer é estagnar.

Estes erros variam de inócuo a devastador em termos de gravidade. No entanto, eles são facilmente evitáveis. Independentemente de quão bom você seja, você cometerá erros. Como você mitiga suas perdas, no entanto, determinará se você vai seguir em frente ou não.



Consejos Semalt Sobre Cómo Llevar A Cabo La Reutilización Del Contenido

Crear un nuevo contenido para un sitio web es la forma de asegurar la presencia de SEO. Al mismo tiempo, reutilizar contenido antiguo aumentará su ranking de SEO. Sin embargo, dar un viejo contenido una capa fresca de la pintura puede ser una tarea difícil especialmente si usted no sabe para qué comenzar.

El experto líder de Semalt, Frank Abagnale describe los factores cruciales que uno debe considerar para reutilizar el contenido con éxito.

1. Recuperar todos los datos de las campañas publicitarias realizadas anteriormente. Obtener todos los datos puede ayudarte a mantenerte concentrado en las tácticas SEO anteriores. Basándose en esta experiencia, también mejorará la efectividad del uso de palabras clave específicas, eligiendo el canal de marketing más adecuado. Hay muchas herramientas automáticas que pueden ayudarle a analizar métricas de negocio durante un período prolongado. Los datos son el elemento clave en información fundamental sobre el desempeño de su empresa.

2. La segmentación del cliente es esencial. El contenido que elija debe reflejar el nicho de destino que está tratando de impresionar. Centrarse en su nicho objetivo es un factor beneficioso para alcanzar las campañas publicitarias objetivo. La segmentación puede ser una herramienta poderosa para llegar a su audiencia en todas las plataformas posibles. En muchos casos, la gente sufre de estafa herramientas que prometen dar resultados rápidos en conseguir tráfico. Sin embargo, no toma en la segmentación de cliente de cuenta. El repurposing del contenido puede ayudarle a resolver este problema alcanzando hacia fuera su nicho particular con éxito.

3. La creación de una interfaz de usuario sensible es otro aspecto esencial de la reutilización de contenido. Tiene un impacto positivo en mantener a los visitantes centrados en el sitio web, lo que significa un compromiso constante de la audiencia. UX considera los elementos que hacen que navegar por el sitio web sea cómodo para los visitantes. Tiene mucho que ver con el diseño web y también. Todo el complejo de técnicas de interfaz de usuario se reduce a la necesidad de colocar la llamada a los botones de acción en el lugar en particular en el sitio web. Cuanto más interactivo sea el enfoque de los diseñadores de UX para el sitio web, más probable el usuario reaccionará al mensaje que desea entregar.

4. Recoger información sobre los lectores. La información y la retroalimentación de los lectores actuales le ayudarán a estimar las perspectivas de satisfacción del cliente. Puede pedir opiniones individuales y puntos de vista para que sea beneficioso para los ajustes necesarios. Después de todo, el sitio web es todo lo que el público quiere. Alcanzar algunos de estos usuarios cosechará sus grandes beneficios en forma de obtener el conocimiento necesario de las ideas que debe incorporar en las campañas futuras.

5. A veces, el contenido antiguo puede inspirarte para crear el contenido futuro. Invierta una buena cantidad de tiempo en volver al contenido anterior. No todo puede ser útil. Sin embargo, el desarrollo de una buena estrategia de contenido, que se centra en los materiales anteriores, puede ser útil en el diseño de campañas publicitarias. El contenido debe tener las fechas actualizadas. Siguiendo estos sencillos pasos, el contenido antiguo permanecerá perenne. Además, también es posible convertir contenido antiguo en algo completamente diferente.

Tan pronto como el objetivo de los editores es mantener la relevancia y visibilidad del contenido, volver en el contenido antiguo de vez en cuando es importante en muchas razones. La razón principal es que volver a poner contenido antiguo puede ayudarle a aumentar los resultados de SEO ranking. Ignorar los comentarios anteriores es un gran error, que puede reducir muchos esfuerzos. Por lo tanto, la reutilización de contenido antiguo requiere los aspectos mencionados anteriormente.



Semalt: Die Wahrheit Über Automatisierte SEO

Suchmaschinenoptimierung (SEO) ist der Prozess der Einrichtung einer Website, die in der organischen Suche indiziert erscheint. SEO beinhaltet die Verwendung verschiedener Taktiken, die der Website helfen, eine günstige Position in den Suchergebnissen bestimmter Inhalte oder stark durchsuchbarer Schlüsselbegriffe zu sichern. SEO hat in der Praxis vieler Blogger seit dem Beginn des Internets bestanden. Viele Unternehmen verstehen jedoch die Einschränkungen einiger temporärer Techniken oder die Verwendung automatisierter Techniken für SEO nicht vollständig.

Die Automatisierung von SEO kann ein langwieriger Prozess sein, und viele Aspekte der Website-Entwicklung erfordern möglicherweise eine zusätzliche menschliche Note, außer der Automatisierung. Die Idee von schnellen Lösungen zur Behebung einiger Probleme wirkt sich jedoch auf das Ranking von Websites aus, daher ist es kein lohnenswertes Unterfangen.

Frank Abagnale, der Customer Success Manager von Semalt Digital Services, erklärt die vergleichenden Stärken und Schwächen der Arbeit mit automatisierter SEO.

Automatisierte SEO

Heutzutage wurden viele Tools entwickelt, um Ihnen bei Ihrer SEO zu helfen. Es gibt Tools für die Keyword-Recherche, Backlinks-Analyse, Traffic-Auswertung, Berichterstellung usw. Was auch immer Sie bei Ihrer Suchmaschinenoptimierung benötigen, finden Sie im Internet. Im letzten Jahrzehnt sind viele einfach zu verwendende Tools für die Verwaltung von Inhalten und Websites entstanden, die vielen Websites geholfen haben, ihre Ranking-Statistiken erheblich zu verbessern. Doch trotz der Plattformen, die Wix und WordPress bereits mehrere SEO-Tools erstellt haben, helfen sie selten, ihre Websites hoch einzustufen. Es ist nicht möglich, eine einzige Lösung für alle Unternehmen zu verwenden, deshalb empfiehlt Semalt, individuelle SEO-Strategien auszuarbeiten, die für jeden einzelnen Fall geeignet sind.

Bedeutet es, dass Sie genau das tun sollten?

Wenn Sie denken, dass die Antwort ja ist, haben Sie nicht genau untersucht, was SEO tickt. Zu Beginn suchte Google jede Webseite nach Suchergebnissen und deren Platzierung in den Suchergebnissen ab. Damals war der Erfolg eines Schlüsselwortes davon abhängig, wie oft es im Inhalt erwähnt wurde. Dies ist, wie versteckte Text-Technologie von Black Hat SEO-Praktiker entwickelt wurde, und deshalb hat Google diese Methode aufgegeben. Als nächstes fing Google an, die Bedeutung von Backlinks und deren Höhe zu berücksichtigen. Dies wurde auch von Webmastern ausgenutzt, die einen billigen und schnellen Weg zum TOP wollten und Google veranlassten, die Strategie noch einmal zu ändern.

Derzeit berücksichtigt Google Algorithmus eine Vielzahl von Faktoren: von Backlinks zu Keywords zu Social Media. Mit nur einem Element ist es nicht genug, um Ihre Marke zum TOP der Suchergebnisse zu machen. Mit der Einführung eines neuen Algorithmus kann morgen jedoch diese ganze Struktur völlig verändert werden

Google ist keine Maschine. Es ist ein Unternehmen, mit Experten, die ständig die Leistung von Suchmaschinen, das Verhalten von Webmastern analysieren und den Komfort der Benutzer vorrangig machen. Sobald sie die Benutzerfreundlichkeit einer Suchmaschine beeinträchtigen, wenden sie daher die erforderlichen Änderungen an, um Websites zu entfernen, die die Verwendung von Google beeinträchtigen. Jedes Mal, wenn eine Herausforderung auftritt, ändert sich Google.

Sogar das erstaunlichste automatisierte Werkzeug kann nicht mit der man-geführten Entwicklung der Suchmaschine mithalten. Ihre Werkzeuge funktionieren vielleicht sofort, aber in einer Woche werden sie gegen die neuen Richtlinien nutzlos sein. Also, wenn Sie etwas wollen, das Sie mit langfristigen Ergebnissen versorgen und die plötzlichen Turnarounds des Google-Algorithmus aushalten würde, bleibt eine kompetente SEO-Agentur Ihr bester Freund. Bei der engen Zusammenarbeit mit Einzelpersonen, die SEO durchführen, kann man viele Markttrends in Bezug auf die Art und Weise erfahren, wie verschiedene Websites funktionieren.

Joost de Valk, der Gründer und Erfinder von Yoast SEO für WordPress Plugins, stimmte zu, dass trotz der Möglichkeit vieler existierender Tools eine Set-and-Forget-Methode zur Verfügung steht, die SEO-Automatisierung ein komplexer Prozess ist, der mehr als das beinhaltet. Zum Beispiel können Maschinen und Software nur teilweise das technische Bit der SEO bedienen. Die Entwicklung von Inhalten und das virale Marketing erfordern ein höheres Maß an menschlichem Engagement, damit sie funktionieren.

Folgerung

SEO-Automatisierung ist ein Prozess, der komplizierter ist, als Sie vielleicht denken. Viele White Hat SEO-Entwicklungstools versprechen eine schnelle Lösung für temporäre Probleme. Es gibt jedoch immer noch ein hohes Maß an Beteiligung an der Entwicklung der Inhalte. SEO-Tools sind unerlässlich und machen das Leben für die meisten Aufgaben, die technische Anforderungen erfordern, leichter. Nichtsdestotrotz garantieren sie Ihnen keine Platzierung in den Suchergebnissen: Im besten Fall werden sie Ihre Website davon abhalten, in den Reihen niedriger zu fallen, aber selbst dieser Vorteil wird nach einem Algorithmuswechsel weg sein.

Kein automatisiertes Programm kann garantieren, dass die harte Arbeit bei der Content-Entwicklung wie Content-Bearbeitung, Inbound-Linking und Keyword-Auswahl ersetzt wird, da es mit den Maschinen nicht richtig funktioniert. Die Verwendung eines vollständig automatisierten Ansatzes bedeutet auch, die Flexibilität und Anpassungsfähigkeit zu opfern, die Sie benötigen, wenn sich die Suchmaschinenoptimierungsroutine plötzlich ändert. Solange Google von Unternehmern und nicht von AI geführt wird, bleibt die Zusammenarbeit mit SEO-Experten die beste Methode, TOP-Positionen zu erobern.



Writing good code: how to reduce the cognitive load of your code.

Low bug count, good performance, easy modification. Good code is high-impact and is perhaps the main reason for the existence of the proverbial 10x developer. And yet, despite its importance, it eludes new developers. The literature on the subject usually amounts to disconnected collections of tips. How can a new developer just memorize all that stuff? “Code Complete“, the greatest exponent in this matter, is 960 pages long!

I believe it’s possible to construct a simple mental framework that can be used with any language or library and which will lead to good quality code by default. There are five main concepts I will talk about here. Keep them in mind and writing good code should be a breeze.

Update: Mia Li was kind enough to offer a Chinese translation of this post here.

Keep your personal quirks out of it

You read some article which blows your mind with new tricks. Now you are going to write clever code and all your peers will be impressed.

The problem is that people just want to fix their bugs and move on. Your clever trick is often nothing more than a distraction. As I talked about in “Applying neuroscience to software development“, when people have to digest your piece of code, their “mental stack” fills up and it is hard to make progress.

Don’t personalize your work in ways that would require explanations.

Don’t code “your way”. Just follow the coding standards. This stuff is already figured out. Make your code predictable and easy to read by coding the way people expect.

Divide and conquer it

Complex code can often be clarified through modularization, and there are more ways to do this than just creating more functions. Storing the result of long conditionals into a variable or two is a great way to modularize without the overhead of a function call. This will even allow you to compose them into larger conditionals, or to reuse the result somewhere else.

The approach when breaking a problem down should be to have each section as focused as possible, affecting only local state, without mixing in irrelevant issues, and without side-effects if at all possible.Programming languages and libraries often come with their issues, and abstracting them away can help your code mind its own business. The Single Responsibility Principle is another example of how focused and localized code leads to good design.



Germany Joins France in Making the Planet Great Again

France and Germany have officially teamed up to support international climate research, according to recent news from the 19th Franco-German Council of Ministers in Paris. Here’s a closer look at the joint initiative.  

 

A Partnership for the Planet

German Federal Minister for Education and Research Johanna Wanka and his French counterpart Frédérique Vidal teamed up to announce the collaboration in alignment with the climate objectives set forth in France’s Make Our Planet Great Again campaign. A response to Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, French President Emmanuel Macron not only invited American scientists to pursue their research in France following Trump’s announcement that, but also charged the public at large with doing their part to fight climate change.  

About the Initiative

Specifically, the collaboration will comprise a four-year research fellowship program for 50 high-level researchers of all nationalities to pursue work in three main areas: climate change; energy transition; and the earth system. France and Germany will contribute EUR 30 million and EUR 15 million in support of the initiative. In addition to boosting climate change research, the partnership also aims to promote interdisciplinary research.   

Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany joined Macron in voicing dissent to Trump’s dismissal of the climate change accord last summer. She declared in a statement, “This decision cannot and will not deter all of us who feel obliged to protect this earth. We will gather all our strength -- in Germany, in Europe and in the world -- to meet the great challenges of humanity, like climate change, and to successfully master these challenges.”  

This position is also shared by many European leaders, including European Council president, Donald Tusk who said at a news conference earlier this year, “The fight against climate change and all the research, innovation and technological progress it will bring will continue with or without the United States.” 



Will Japan Change Residency Requirement for Creatives?

The Japanese government is currently weighing whether or not to relax residency requirements for international students studying anime, design and culinary professions, according to a report from The Japan Times. The aim? To make it easier for graduates in these fields to find work after graduating. Here’s a closer look at the proposal, along with why experts say the change is necessary.

 

Supporting Japan’s Content Industry

As the country aims to boost Japanese culture abroad, securing the right talent is a critical part of the equation, say experts. Enter the requested changes to residency requirements. Currently, residency status is necessary for international graduates -- a status dependent on whether or not “they can make use of the specialized knowledge and techniques they acquired at vocational schools or universities in Japan,” says The Japan Times.

Broadening the Scope

However, residency status for working is limited to jobs requiring higher professional skills, a scenario which insiders say is detrimental to content industry workers who may have less complicated roles and responsibilities as they enter the workforce. Because of this, the government is evaluating whether to grant permissions lasting for up to two years as long as an employment plan is submitted.

In addition to changing residency requirements, the Japanese government is also considering extending the length of time international students can stay while seeking work in Japan. Currently, graduates have just six months to find jobs, but experts say this is not long enough given their simultaneous commitment to graduation projects.

Wondering about the timeline for these possible changes? The soonest the new residency requirements will go into effect will be late next year, following a research period in which the government will survey entities from both industry and academia to determine the best course of action.



Robots Rule This Futuristic Barley Field

An automated combine harvests crops.

Is there anything more quintessentially American than a farmer in the heartland, toiling away on their land? But this vision of agrarian life will fade into the dusty shelves of sentimental nostalgia, because agriculture is poised to become an industry ruled by robot laborers. Companies like Hands Free Hectare (HFHa) are leading the way.

After a year of work, the HFHa project successfully harvested a crop of spring barley, grown using only autonomous machine labor. Members of the Harper Adams University engineering staff and precision agriculture company Precision Decisions partnered on the HFHa project. Though many farmers are already using satellite-guided equipment to assist in the harvest, the initiative aimed to be the first in the world to farm a crop with a single person developing callouses.

No Hands … Or Feet

The team modified an Iseki tractor and a Sampo combine to include a custom automation system. All of the systems working the field sent feedback to a central mission control system, allowing for real-time human monitoring. While the machines themselves operated independently, many important decisions were still in the hands of humans. The HFHa team regularly met and consulted with an agronomist to help make important decisions, altering the robots’ plans accordingly.

Total in-field autonomy wasn’t the only goal. Another major tenet of the project was precision agriculture, or the using tools to collect observations and measurements to determine how to maintain crops within a field. Precision agriculture allows for specific, tailored treatment plans for a variety of needs based on a wealth of data.

For example, drones with automated flight patterns can capture aerial snapshots of a field. Those images are then analyzed to determine which areas might require additional fertilizers, nitrogen or watering. The HFHa team used a drone to capture multispectral images for such an analysis, along with what it calls a “robotic scout” to collect plant and soil samples from different parts of the field for in-lab testing and examination.

Precision agriculture, combined with the efficiency of automation, presents a compelling answer to the question of feeding a growing population. But the technology isn’t there yet—the entirety of the HFHa project cost £200,000 (about $265,000) for a yield of 4.5 tons. That’s about $265 per bushel for its barley, which typically costs roughly $4 to $5.

Despite the less-than-optimal returns, the best thing to do after a successful harvest is kick back with a beer and appreciate your bounty. Appropriately, HFHa’s team hopes to use the autonomously farmed barley to make their own brew, perfect for a celebratory drink.



Higher taxes for rich will not harm economic growth, says IMF

Increasing inequality within countries could actually be harming economic productivity, the organization warns in its biannual report

 

Higher tax rates for the rich would help reduce inequality without having a severe impact on economic growth, the International Monetary Fund has said.

The influential organization, which is based in Washington DC, has published its biannual fiscal monitor to voice its support for the policies of left-wing politicians such as Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has called for high earners to pay more into the public purse. 

Countries around the world are suffering the consequences of rising internal inequality and the IMF said tax theory suggested the top one per cent of earners should be paying "significantly" more.

It highlighted that although inequality between countries has fallen in recent decades due to the economic success of countries such as China and India, internal inequality in places like the US and the UK has risen sharply.

The IMF, along with the World Bank, will hold its semi-annual meeting of global policymakers later this week.

Its call to arms on promoting more inclusive growth comes at an uncertain time for many richer countries.

The rise of populist politicians, such as Donald Trump, populist parties, such as the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD), and political shocks like Brexit have been blamed on voters becoming increasingly alienated from the ruling elites amid stagnating wages and rising house prices.

 

Over the same period, 53 per cent of countries have seen increased income inequality, the IMF said, and Latin America remains the most unequal in the world. The increase in inequality has been particularly acute in advanced economies but is spread across the globe.



White House says it can't lawfully pay Obamacare subsidies

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said late on Thursday that it cannot lawfully pay subsidies to health insurance companies under the Obamacare health law, prompting howls of protests from Democratic lawmakers.

A White House statement said based on guidance from the Justice Department, “the Department of Health and Human Services has concluded that there is no appropriation for cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies under Obamacare.”

“In light of this analysis, the Government cannot lawfully make the cost-sharing reduction payments,” the statement said.

 

The move drew swift condemnation from Democrats and threats from state attorneys general in New York and California to file lawsuits.

Trump has been frustrated by Republicans’ failure to repeal and replace the law known as Obamacare, thwarting a promise he made during his successful 2016 presidential campaign.

His decision is likely to please those among his political base who detest the Obamacare system, which many Republicans have attacked for years as an unneeded government intrusion in Americans’ health care.

In a nod to that same constituency, the president signed an executive order earlier on Thursday to make it easier for Americans to buy bare-bones health insurance plans exempt from Obamacare requirements.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi derided the subsidies cut-off in a joint statement, saying Trump would single-handedly push Americans’ health care premiums higher.



Air pollution blamed for 500,000 early deaths in Europe

Filthy air killed half a million people in Europe prematurely in 2014. So says a report on air quality from the European Environment Agency in Copenhagen, Denmark.

“Air pollution is the single largest environmental health risk in Europe,” says the EEA.

By far the biggest killer was PM2.5, the soup of tiny particles measuring 2.5 micrometers across or less. These claimed an estimated 428,000 premature deaths across the 41 European countries tracked in 2014. The main source, contributing 57 percent of PM2.5 emissions in 2015, was domestic wood burning, especially in eastern Europe.

Nitrogen dioxide, mostly from vehicle exhausts, cut short an estimated 78,000 lives across the same 41 countries. Ground-level ozone was the other major killer, claiming an estimated 14,400 lives prematurely.

“Heart disease and stroke are the most common reasons for premature death attributable to air pollution, and are responsible for 80 percent of cases,” the report says. Air pollution also contributes to other respiratory diseases and cancer and has non-lethal impacts on diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, pregnancy and brain development in children.

Hotspots of bad air

The two worst hotspots for PM2.5 pollution were Poland and northern Italy, where dozens of cities exceeded the EU’s annual mean limit of 25 micrograms of particles per cubic meter of air. “Poland and the Po valley have very bad pollution,” says Alberto González Ortiz, the report’s lead author.

The worst offender was the city of Krakow in Poland, where the PM2.5 value was 44 micrograms. Levels also reached 40 micrograms in Macedonia. More than a dozen Polish cities exceeded 30 micrograms, as did cities in northern Italy including Milan, Padua, Cremona, Brescia, Venice, and Turin.

In all, 7 to 8 percent of Europe’s urban population was exposed to PM2.5 concentrations that exceeded the EU limit. But when the World Health Organization’s stricter limit of 10 micrograms was used as a benchmark, between 82 and 85 percent of urban Europeans were exposed.

The UK saw an estimated 37,600 premature deaths from PM2.5 exposure in 2014. The worst hotspot was 16 micrograms, along with London’s Marylebone Road, followed by 15 micrograms on a roadside in Haringey, north London.

But the UK also saw many premature deaths from exposure to nitrogen dioxide: about 14,000. This was compounded by widespread use of diesel fuel in vehicles. In one part of London, the annual limit for nitrogen dioxide was exceeded as early as 6 January this year. In September, London mayor Sadiq Khan triggered the capital’s seventh emergency air quality alert since he introduced the system a year ago. Impacts from nitrogen dioxide were also high in Germany, France, and Spain.

Overall, emissions are falling, but slowly, says Ortiz. He says the air would get cleaner faster if countries further limited their numbers of vehicles, burned cleaner fuels for heating and created more pedestrianized areas. Ortiz also recommends adapting infrastructure to suit cycling and promoting wider use of public transport.



The 7 stages of becoming a Go programmer

Whether you're new to Go or a seasoned Gopher, you may recognize these steps on the path to Go enlightenment.

One day at work, we were discussing the Go programming language in our work chatroom. At one point, I commented on a co-worker's slide, saying something along the lines of:

"I think that's like stage three in the seven stages of becoming a Go programmer."

Naturally, my co-workers wanted to know the rest of the stages, so I briefly outlined them. Here, expanded with more context, are the seven stages of becoming a Go programmer; see if you can see yourself on this pathway.

Stage 1: You believe you can make Go do object-oriented programming

 

Programming and development

After your initial run on A Tour of Go, you start thinking "Now, how can I make this language behave more like an object-oriented language...?" After all, you are used to that stuff. You want to make robust code. You want polymorphism.

 

"There has to be away!" You say, and you find struct embedding. It allows you to cleverly delegate methods from the enclosing object to the embedded object without having to duplicate code. Great!

Of course, this is not true. Struct embedding only allows you to delegate method calls. Even if it looks like you are doing polymorphic method dispatch, the relationship is not IS-A. It's HAS-A, so the receiver of the method call is not the enclosing object: The receiver is always the embedded object to which the method call was delegated to.

Stage 2: You believe goroutines will solve all of your problems

You were lured to Go by the promise that it will allow you to easily run the concurrent code, which, it does via goroutines! All you need to do is use the go keyword, and you can make pretty much any function or method call run concurrently. It is only natural, then, that you want to maximize your code's efficiency by making as much code to run in parallel. And because you hid this fact by making your function calls to create goroutines automatically, the caller does not even need to be aware of this.

Yeah, so it might make your code a bit more complicated but look, now everything runs concurrently!

Go allows you to create millions of goroutines without sacrificing much efficiency, but you really should not use goroutines just because you can. Concurrent code is harder to maintain and debug than code that just flows in a single thread. I mean, have you given serious thought to whether your shared objects are really synchronized properly when accessed from multiple goroutines at once? Are you sure the order of execution is absolutely correct? Have you really checked if those goroutines actually exit when they're no longer needed?

Goroutines are best used only when they are necessary, and unless your requirements dictate that you do everything in memory or some such, you should never abandon the use of good old multi-process models.

And finally, try NOT to spawn goroutines behind your users' back, especially if you are writing a library. Explicit calls to use go calls usually give the user more flexibility and power.

Goroutines take you only so far. Use them only when it really makes sense.

Stage 3: You believe that instead of object-oriented programming, interfaces will solve all of your problems

After being disillusioned that you cannot make your objects behave in a polymorphic manner, you suddenly realize the capabilities offered by interfaces. Interfaces allow you to describe APIs; there has to be a way to use this to write more robust code.

Interfaces do give you a lot of power, but it's not an end-all solution. It still does not provide true polymorphism in the sense of object-oriented programming. You are also limited by the fact that interfaces can only define the API, and you cannot associate any data with it.

Also, although there are legitimate cases where exporting only interfaces instead of concrete structs make sense, it really should not be your default mode of operation. Interfaces are best when they are small-ish (as opposed to describing an entire list of methods defined for an object). Also, if you are not careful, you will have to either write a lot of extra code to fulfill the interface or to write code that requires a lot of type-assertions.

Stage 4: You believe channels will solve all of your problems

After you spent a lot of time pondering how to bend Go to work your way, you are now looking for that missing piece that will make everything work your way. "Wait, there are still channels!"

Channels implicitly handle concurrent access correctly. You believe you should be able to solve many of the obstacles so far by cleverly using channels to handle synchronization, returning values (a la future/promises), and flow control with select-statements with various channels.

Stage 5: You now believe Go is not as powerful as people claim it to be

"Why?! Why is it so painful to write Go code? It doesn't allow me to write code the way I have been doing."

You are frustrated. No polymorphism. Concurrency is hard. Channels don't solve your problems. You don't even understand why Go exists. You feel like you've been stripped of all the nice tools and constructs that other languages provide.

You believe that more powerful tools to express abstract ideas are absolutely necessary. Go just doesn't cut it.

Go is decidedly opinionated. I come from a Perl background, and for a while I could not believe how limiting Go was. So yes, I understand if you become frustrated.

Stage 6: You realize that stages 1-5 were all just your imagination

At some point, you grudgingly decide to write Go code according to how most of the standard library is written. You also give up trying to be clever, and start writing straightforward code.

Then it comes to you: You just didn't want to accept the Go way.

Everything starts to make sense.

In all seriousness, learning Go does require some unlearning. I had to unlearn object-oriented programming a bit, as well as embrace the fact that no matter how many useful tools the language may give you, writing concurrent code is just too hard for mere mortals. I also had to unlearn to use exceptions.

Once I decided to accept the functionalities and constructs as they are, writing Go code became much easier, and definitely much more fun.

Stage 7: You are now at peace

You have accepted the Go way. You now write everything, including what you would've normally used Perl/Ruby/Python for, in Go. You realize if err != nil no longer bothers you. You only use goroutines and channels when you must.

You are one with the Gopher. You feel its glorious chi, and cry when you realize its mercy for allowing your to write code in such a majestic language.

Congratulations. Now you are a Go programmer.

Semalt: Importance Of Filtering Out The Admin Traffic From Google Analytics

Have you checked the Google Analytics and noticed that some uncertain things are happening? Well, it happens to all of us, so you are not new to this thing. There are times when we set up some things on our website and change its design or layout, but the results are not as expected. All this can affect your visits and quality of your website traffic. In such circumstances, you should filter out the admin traffic from your Google Analytics, and this can be done when you use a variety of WordPress plug-ins. And if you don't use a plugin, then you would have to do that thing manually. Google Analytics lets you filter the traffic when you exclude your IP address or exclude the traffic by cookies content.

Most often it is believed that the first method is far better and comprehensive than the second method. Lisa Mitchell, the Customer Success Manager of Semalt, states that if you have IP addresses that are dynamically generated or if you are using a laptop or device of a coffee shop, then you should stop your own visits from being counted on the Google Analytics. Both of these methods have their own advantages and disadvantages and can be chosen based on your requirements.

Exclude your IP address

This method lets you set your Google Analytics in a better way. That will help you to improve the quality of your traffic, and you can stop receiving views from specific IP addresses or a range of IPs. However, this can be done only when you are using a laptop and are ready to adjust the settings from the same device. And if you leave for office or are outside your house, this method cannot give any benefit. In that case, you should try to use the second method. For excluding traffic by specific IPs, you should create custom filters that can analyze the quality of your traffic in a better way. Log into your Google Analytics account and click the settings option on the top right corner. Then you should press the new filter option and add information such as filter name, type of filter, IP address, and others.

Exclude traffic by Cookie Content

You must exclude traffic by cookie content and create filters that don't get locked during this process. The downside of this method is that you can exclude one IP address at a time and cannot perform this task on multiple IPs all of a sudden. Plus, it is mandatory to clear your cookies before your setup this method. First of all, you should create files that will add the cookies to your browsers. Then you should create HTML files and add them in this format: filter-traffic.html. The next step is to instruct the search engines not to index your site's content for some time. This is a major step as it will ensure the quality of your website and its overall visitors. Once you have excluded it, the next step is to adjust the cookies' settings in your browser. Finally, you should add the tracking codes in the tag of JavaScript and set custom variables, which can be filtered in Google Analytics later on.



Basic Reasons To Remove Localhost From The Referrer List – Practice From Semalt

Lisa Mitchell, the Semalt Customer Success Manager, says when you have a website, your team is bound to be testing this and that. If at any time somebody from your team is running the development version of your web app with Google Analytics tracking code, then they're bound to bump into some annoying things.

For a start, localhost keeps showing up in the Referrers reports. Secondly, your website's metrics such as the bounce rate, number of page views, conversion rates and so forth. As it is, these metrics will be skewed because as the team member performs a test on the website, things get mixed up. You wouldn't want that, will you?

A quick fix

You can remedy this situation in a very easy way. In fact, you have three ways at your disposal. Regardless of your choice the fix only works for new visits. The existing data will remain tainted, and you cannot do anything about this.

Add an exclusion filter on Google Analytics

Adding an exclusion filter on your Google Analytics account is the simplest and easiest way to remedy the system from mixing up different metrics. You wouldn't even need intervention from the technical team. Here are some tips:

  • open your Google Analytics account then select 'Admin.'
  • own the view column click 'Filters'
  • set up a new filter by opting for 'New Filter'
  • create new 'Predetermined Filter,' which will exclude web traffic to 'localhost' host name.

Note that you may have to change the localhost name to whichever local host name your team uses. Better yet, if the development team happens to share your network, then you can exclude the entire IP range. This way, your metrics won't be jumbled. Simply set your filter to exclude 'traffic from IP addresses, ' and you're done.

Changing the JavaScript tracking snippet to exclude the host

This is a reasonable choice compared to messing up with Google Analytics filters. Just go to the tracking snippet and identify the property ID used to keep tabs on analytics. If you might have upgraded to Universal Analytics, then you'll bump into something like this: ga('create', UA-98765432-1', 'website.com').

Note that instead of example.com, you'll actually use your real domain. Fortunately or unfortunately, you'll have to be adept in technical jargon. For instance, you may have to use an if-statement somewhere on the code. Although there has been a mention of the process being simple, it requires writing new code.

Skipping the JavaScript snippet in your template

If your website uses PHP language like the case of WordPress then you could edit the footer which coincidentally includes Google Analytics snippet. There is even the possibility that your server allows for web apps to run in development mode or in production. Whatever the case, you can never go wrong.

Moving on

Once you have made these changes, there is need to see whether they are effective or not. Do a test a day or two later for confirmation. Choose an appropriate data range, one that does not include the days before the change.



Semalt Expert On The Blockage Of Russian Referral Spam From Google Analytics

Spammers are continuously developing new types of spams that attack Google Analytics. Currently, there has been an inflow of spam ware from Russia with the spammers taking their time to develop spams that will gather traffic. There are four main types of spams namely: Analytic, Crawler, Legit bots and Search spam.

Get down to the compelling issues provided by the leading expert from Semalt, Alexander Peresunko, and stay safe from referral spam.

Analytic spam

They are also known as ghost referrals. Although they do not visit the site, they are seen in the analytics whilst spamming Google Analytics ID's. The spamming takes place in a random manner and is intended to trick the computer user into opening their referral sites. They are mostly of Russian origin.

Crawler spam

These are the type of spams that are characterized by their crawling nature on the internet collecting information. It is advised to avoid visiting them because of their virus threat hence they should be blocked. Example of crawler spams is buttons-for-website spam.

Legit Bots

Although legit иots are not commonly seen in analytics, they occasionally spider around content in a bid to show in search engines.

Search Spam

These spam do not actually visit one's website but instead ping analytics account in an attempt to spam their targets. Search spam can be filtered thus preventing them from showing in the analytics account.

Measures of controlling spam

Although spams appear to link to websites, Russian spams do not actually engage the websites in which they are seen. The following is a list of some of the most common spam links namely:

  • hulfingtonpost.com
  • 7makemoneyonline.com
  • cenoval.ru
  • pricereg.com
  • darodar.com
  • economy.co
  • blackhatworth.com
  • bestwebsiteawards.com
  • buttons-for-website.com
  • ilovevitality.com

Most of these links do not go to users' website but instead visit user ID's of Google Analytics users. Their links show up in analytic results which tempt Google users to visit their websites. Examples of such spams are darodar and ilovevitality.com. Even though spams do not visit the user's site, it is essential to block them from showing up in Google Analytics results. The reasons for the need to block spams are:

  • i. It is vital to have accurate data on the number of people that are visiting one's site so that effective analysis can be carried out. This information is important in determining the bounce rate and the presence of spams makes data collected for analysis inaccurate.
  • ii. The presence of spams negatively affect the rankings of search engines. The existence of spammers who are continuously developing new types of spams necessitate the existence of companies such as Misfit to combat the vice and make the running of small business smooth.

Referral spams can be combated using the TL checklist:

1. The bot Filtering Tool can be used to prevent bots from showing up in a Google Analytics account by clicking on the "View Settings" and selecting the "bot filtering" option.

2. All Russian spam URL's should be filtered by adding them to the referral exclusion list including the view filters option.

a) In the case of blocking referral spam, visit the Google Analytics account and select the "Filter" tool.

b) Select the "New Filter" option and input the domain name.

c) On the type of filter, select the custom option and select the Referral option.

d) Type the precise URL that you wish to block on the "Filter Pattern".

e) Procedure d above should be carried out for the same domain but on the "Filter field" option you should click the hostname.

f) The same process applies for search spam only that the "Filter Field" should be replaced with "Campaign Term" and the pattern is the legible wording verbatim.

3. It is however recommended that a report is made to Google if there are suspicions of malicious codes.

STORM OF CENTURY "Hurricane Maria"

STORM OF CENTURY

Hurricane Maria

Hurricane Maria – storm of the century- has knocked out unchecked heavy storm 3 days ago on the Puerto Rico at early Wednesday morning. Maria has been proved as a widespread disaster across Puerto Rico. Maria direct hit on Puerto Rico and upgraded as a category 3 storm with heavy winds of 155 miles per hour. The Recent condition is, Maria’s winds have strengthened to 125mph (250kph) and the center of the hurricane was about 175 miles east of San Salvador Island on Friday evening. Now it is expected that the storm is slowly weakening while it is taking a turn towards the north.  

Puerto Rico, Gov.Ricardo Rossello has warned people at the initial time when the hurricane was expected. He warned that Maria could hit

 “with a force and violence that we haven’t seen for several generations”.

Forecasters also had warned that “extremely dangerous major hurricane could strike the British and U.S Virgin Islands. All residents’ places across the capital were being encouraged to take precautions. Public safety commissioner has told Puerto Ricans:

“they must take the precautions otherwise they were die”.

In Puerto Rico, emergency officials on Saturday saved thousands of people from a river valley below a dam by clearing the area of island’s northwest, which was on the edge of ruin under the weight of flooding even after that Rossello reported that Maria had cracked the dam and could cause fatal flooding. There 25 people have been died by Maria’s attack as reported by media reporters.

 Maria has pulled out many electricity poles and left the island without power.  There everywhere, mode of communication and system of electricity has been badly disrupted. Trees were seeing as swirling in that strong wind and major highways are also blocked by foliage as well as with the flood. The commercial Roosevelt Avenue, malls and other marketplaces have water up to the waist. San Juan radio station has reported that 80 percent homes have been destroyed in the Juana Matos neighborhood by the hurricane even flood took some homes with it. According to Shania Vargas – a resident of Carolina: “It’s looking ugly, ugly, ugly over here” she was giving a telephonic interview. Another resident said that

            “as uncomfortable as we are, we are better off than any other place”.

M.de la Cruz said that “This looks like a different country”.

The White House approved an emergency declaration in Puerto Rico and orders federal agencies to provide their assistance with full responsibility. Trump has tweeted his support to the people of Puerto Rico which have been welcomed by Governor Rossello. The FDMA (federal emergency management agency) has arranged an emergency team for island who have inspected every critical infrastructure and provide help to pitiable people.

Mr. Rosselló - earlier on Wednesday- said that the capital has updated its building codes around 2011. Recent structures have been built to withstand storms, but many traditional residences, the governor said,

“had no chance.”

Still, Mr. Rosselló offered words of hope.

“There is no hurricane stronger than the people of Puerto Rico,” he said. “And immediately after this is done, we will stand back up.”

Role of Social Media in Modern Life

As we all know that Media is a source of information and communication and Print media and electronic media are main forms of media.

Social media is about sociology and psychology more than technology”(Brain Solis, Future Works)

In the fast growing world of communication, media has brought a great revolution. As this is the age of information, that’s why media catches too much importance and since media is the largest stakeholder as far as information is concerned.

Media can bring a great change in our society even have a great impact on an individual to nation’s mind. So it is media’s job to spread information, which it does brilliantly.

Media effects:

Our knowledge

Our attitude

Our behavior

Our emotions

Our political views

In which ways media influenced the society?

Media has badly influenced our society especially our new generation in many ways as like;

  • The time when children use media displaces, they could be doing physical activities, which is better than using social media devices. These displays minimize their physical activities, which have bad effects on children.
  • Children watch the food advertisements which influence them to make unhealthy food choices. Popular T.V characters attract the children and encourage them to eat more high-calorie food. Children eat snack excessively and they eat less healthy meals while watching the T.V. This habit may become the cause of different diseases as like weight gain, stomach issues etc.
  • Children are growing up too fast.

“Most little girls feel the pressure, often brought on by the media

 they watch, to look and act more like older teenagers.” (Girls Speak Out, January 2000)

The media is pushing girls to look, dress, makeup and act much older than they are. Their talking styles are also badly affected because their media idols do it. They are losing their childhood beauty.

  • There is another thing that media is happy to introduce younger children to an adult world without moral boundaries.
  • Music videos, movies, reality shows, commercial adds even video games are showing immoral data.

As media has the power to change the opinions of people, it can bring a great positive change in society. Media have access to people and it provides a lot of strength. This strength can either be used constructively by educating the people or it can be used destructively by misleading the innocent people.

Power of the media can be used as a ‘weapon of mass destruction because it can convert the whole society.

  • Media can aware the people about the basic human rights.
  • It can build up an environment of education.
  • It can promote discipline.

 

Education and discipline are keys to progress. This is the difference between a nation and a crowd. Media has changed the societies of the world. It has the capacity to change individuals’ minds according to the information provided through it.

 



Top Hundred Greatest Personalities of the World

Top Hundred Greatest Personalities of the World

Today I will provide a short description about Top Hundred Greatest Personalities of the World based on each person’s supreme individual achievement or achievements. How can we assess that one who would be the greatest and the most influential personality of the whole world??

 For answer, I quote the words of Abraham Lincoln

“My concern is not weather God is on our side;

My greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right” (Abraham Lincoln)

The findings of Michael Hart are worthy on this ground. He was honestly reported what he discovered. He developed authentic criteria and applied it to all famous personalities to realize who had the most influence in human history. He evaluated the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his teachings from the perspective of truthfulness and excellence. It might arise the conflict to mention the name of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) at the top as Hart was non-Muslim but he stated true description and fairly completed his work.

 “He (PBUM) was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels” (Michael H Hart)

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the best man in the history to have ever walked on the earth not only for one era but also for ever. Everything which he did that how he ate, drank, walked and talked to his friends even enemies, treated animals, provide justice to the poor and rich means each and everything he had done was perfect. He (PBUH) was the best of all mankind, his mercy covered all, humans and non-humans, Muslims and non-Muslims, trees, animals. In short, he (PBUH) is the best role model for mankind to look up to.

Steven Skiena mentions a list of 100 bigger personalities where he mention Jesus at the top and I also prefer Jesus name before Isaac as he is not only founder of Christianity but also a spiritual teacher and central figure of Christianity which is the largest religion of the world.

Prime Minister Abbasi's New Cabinet takes oath

Members of the new federal cabinet took oath at a ceremony organized at the Presidency in Islamabad on Friday morning.

President Mamnoon Hussain administered the oath to 47 members of Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi's cabinet old but few are a new one.

The cabinet is comprised of 28 federal ministers and 19 state ministers.

Khawaja Muhammad Asif will serve as the country’s new foreign minister whereas Ahsan Iqbal will be in charge of the key interior ministry in the government of Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.

Marriyum Aurangzeb, Zahid Hamid, and Dr. Tariq Fazal Chaudhry are expected to retain their previous portfolios. Hamid was law minister and Ms. Aurangzeb minister of state for information in the previous cabinet of the ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif. She had replaced Pervez Rashid. Tariq Fazal was in charge of the Capital Administration and Development Division.

 

The PML-N had been deliberating over membership of the new cabinet over the past few days, as well as its contender for the upcoming NA-120 by-poll for the seat left vacant by ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

The court in its July 28 verdict concluded that Sharif had been 'dishonest' by not declaring in his nomination papers for the 2013 General Election - as required under Section 12(2)(f) of the Representation of the People Act (ROPA), 1976 - a salary of 10,000 dirhams receivable as chairman of the board of Dubai-based company Capital FZE owned by his son Hassan Nawaz.

Abbasi Said:

"I am the country’s prime minister. If I am here for 45 days, I will do 45 years of work in this time," he promised.

 



Semalt Outlines The Reasons Why You Need SEO Skills In Your SaaS Business

Any SaaS startup founder must figure out the ways team can market the newly established company and make its first sales and leads. In this regard, Alexander Peresunko, the Customer Success manager of Semalt, presents eight reasons why it is necessary to have an SEO expert in the team if you want to take a business to the next level.

Foremost, everyone in business is a marketer. Most SaaS companies use content marketing techniques when starting the venture. It is, indeed, a great concept because one does not only publicize products but also educates prospective clients through various content. However, creating an excellent content that stands out from the range of SaaS startups is not easy. SEO can be useful in this regard if implemented well.

Secondly, there are thousands of SaaS startups. Research indicates that SaaS software is an ever-growing service in the marketing industry. According to Statista, steady growth is anticipated, and worldwide SaaS revenue will grow to 38 billion USD by 2018. It implies that many products will be available in the organic search for SaaS start-up businesses.

Thirdly, SEO is now an evolved concept. Like other digital businesses, SEO industry has changed a lot in a previous couple of years. This growth can be witnessed from backlinks to technical driven aspects and more SEO driven content activities. Thus to execute a well-organized SEO strategy, the one should have well-thought out external communications in addition to content that targets your audience.

Another reason is positioning your business purposes with SEO. Customers stand for what they believe. Thus, your SaaS business positioning and identity are crucial. For example, clients like customer communication tool from Intercom for its new and straightforward technique of communication. Thus, to be found in organic search results, you should focus on positioning your values and promoting what customers can get from your business.

SEO skills are an important part for your team, because building SaaS products requires technical expertise to be available in the team. Thus, a business can rank higher by considering diverse SEO activities when creating a great product and get ahead of competitors by hacking organic search rankings, for example, through making products shareable. This has the effect of making use of available customer base.

SEO skills enable one to be a thought leader. SaaS startup probably works on a product that is unavailable in the market yet. Presenting yourself as a thought leader in some subject matter is an opportunity to invent even more products because people will always need your expertise. To be recognized as a thought leader, it is important to be the first in organic search results.

Having SEO skills enables a business owner to hack sign-up rates with SEO. SaaS business trucks up important metrics to better understand customers and site. In addition to session durations and unique visitors, sign-up conversion is a significant performance parameter.

Finally, every owner wants his/her SaaS business perform growth. In this regard, SEO must be a regular practice. It is a long term strategy, which can help you to establish sustainable nosiness growth. Therefore, stay updated with the new SEO techniques, which complement various activities of SaaS start-up.



TAQWA (Fear of Allah)

Definition of Taqwa
The Messenger of Allah, (PBUH) said: Taqwa is here," and he pointed to his
chest.
Allah says,
“O Believers! Fear ye God, (Have Taqwa) and believe in His Messenger; He will give you
two portions from His Mercy and will place in you light, which you will walk with and He will
forgive you.” 
Allah, the Almighty also says:
“O Believers! If you will be fearing God He shell decree a decision for you and acquit you of your
sins and forgive you” 
Al-Haafidh Ibn Katheer (d.777H) said: “Ibn Abbaad, as-Suddee, ‘Ikrimah, ad-Dahhaak,
Qataadah and Muqaatil Ibn Mayan all said about “Furqaan” that it means: a way out (from
difficulty). Mujaahid added: “A way out (from difficulty) both in this world and in the Hereafter”.
In a narration from Ibn ‘Abbas he said it means: salvation; and in another narration from him:
being helped.
Muhammad bin Ishaaq said that it means: a criterion to judge between truth and falsehood.
This explanation from Ibn Ishaaq is the most general of what has already preceded and it is a
necessary consequence of it. Since whoever has Taqwa of Allah by obeying His commands and
abandoning what he has prohibited, will be given the ability to recognize truth from falsehood

Concept of Taqwa (Piety)
Taqwa means: to cleanse or purify the heart and the soul. Some Aayaat in Sort ush-Shams
in which Allah says proves this fact:
“By the sun and its rising sunshine, and by the moon when it comes after the sun, and by
the day when it brightens, it, and by the night when it enshrouds it, and by the heaven and as He
made it, and by the earth and as he extended (outspread) it, and by the soul and as He shaped it,
then He inspired it understanding of licentiousness and warding off! Verily prospered he who
purified it, and failed he who threw it into dust [91:1-10]
Among the missions of the Prophet (PBUH) Allah sent him with the command
to purify the souls of the Muslims in particular and of mankind in general.
Allah (T) says:
“It is he who rose up from among the illiterate a Messenger from among them recites to
them His verses and Book and the Wisdom and before that they had been laying in manifest
forgetfulness.” 
In this ayah the word Hikmah is often translated as wisdom. Imam Shafi', one of the
greatest scholars of Islam, said that when Allah mentions Hikmah in the Qur’an it refers to the
Sunnah of the Prophet(PBUH) In addition to this ayah, we see that the Prophet (PBUH) was sent with three tasks:
1) To teach the Qur’an.
2) To teach the Sunnah.
3) To show the means of purifying the soul.
This purification is obtained by doing the proper acts of 'ibaadah and by avoiding sins and
disobedience.
Conditions for Attaining Taqwa
How does a person know that his acts of 'ibaadah are helping him to achieve Taqwa? To develop
Taqwa, one must fulfill the following conditions:-
1) Ikhlaas, sincere intention that the act is performed purely for the pleasure of Allah, out of love
for Him, while hoping for His reward and mercy, as well as fearing His anger and punishment if He
is disobeyed.
2) To do the deed in accordance with the authentic Sunnah. To have the necessary knowledge of
the 'ibaadah, that is being performed. To know how the Prophet ...performed the action and proper
times for the performance of that action.
Concerning Ikhlaas, it must be present both before and after performing the deed, with no riyaa or
sum'ah (doing things to be seen or heard by people). For instance, after doing a good deed,
someone tells others, “Look at all the good I have been doing ", or “I’m such a marvelous person
because I do such and such".
This formula, if used to achieve Taqwa, is scientific, in that if you follow it, while fulfilling all of its
conditions and their rights, you will achieve Taqwa Insha’a Allah.



Relationship Between Islam And Science

If someone thinks that Islam and science are two opposite things, he/she’ll be totally wrong. Now the thing is that which association, we seem between the two terms “Islam” and “Science”??  As like the origin of both is One so both of these are strongly connected to each other. There are more than six thousand ‘signs’ in the Quran of which more than a thousand deal with science. 

The Quranic verses mentioned scientific facts almost 1400 years ago, proven correct in the 20th century by human beings.

CREATION OF THE UNIVERSE: The Bing Bang Theory

Modern science indicates that, at one point in time, the whole universe was an opaque highly dense and hot gaseous composition. And the earth and the heavens above (the sun, the moon, stars, planets, galaxies, etc.) were formed from this same smoke. They were one connected entity, then separated from each other. (The First Three Minutes, a Modern View of the Origin of the Universe, Weinberg, pp. 94-105)

The Glorious Quran mentions …….Then He (Allah) turned to the heaven when it was smoke … (41:11)

Do not the Unbelievers see that the heavens and the earth were joined together (as one Unit of Creation), before We clove them asunder? [Al-Quran 21:30]

THE LIGHT OF THE MOON IS REFLECTED LIGHT WHEREAS SUN PRODUCES BOTH

Modern science shows that Moon is a dark body reflects light but does not produce heat whereas the sun produces both light and heat.

Quran proves it; “See you not how Allah has created the seven skies one above another, and has made the moon a light therein and made the sun a glowing lamp?” (71: 15-16)

THE SUN AND THE MOON ROTATION

Modern science notifies us that the sun and the moon each rotate in its own orbit.

In Quran we come across; "It is not permitted To the Sun to catch up The Moon, nor can The Night outstrip the Day: Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (According the Law)” (36:40)

MAN IS CREATED FROM ALAQ : A leech like substance

"Proclaim! (or Read!) In the name Of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created – Created man, out of A (mere) clot Of congealed blood." (Quran 96:1-2)

The word alaq besides meaning a congealed clot of blood also means something that clings, a leech-like substance. And knowing the reality of embryo is very astonishing that in the initial stage embryo appears like a leech.

BREAST FEEDING

According to clinical point of view long term breast feeding provide security for health and protects against certain diseases.

Islam advising it 1400 years ago;

“ The mothers will breast feed  their children for two whole years,  (that is) for those (parents) who desire to complete the term of breast feeding” (Quran 1:233)

DECREASE OF LAND

Science demonstrates that land is decreasing due to the movements of tectonic plates.

“Don’t they see that We gradually reduce the land from its outlying boundaries?

Where Allah commands, there is none to put back His command” (Quran 13:41)

DARKNESS IN OCEAN AND SEAS

The darkness in deep seas and oceans is found around a depth of 200 meters and below. At this depth, there is almost no light. Below a depth of 1000 meters there is no light at all. (Elder, Danny; and John Pernetta, 1991, Oceans, London, Mitchell Beazley Publishers, s.27)

“Or like the darkness of a deep sea which is covered by waves above which are waves above which are clouds, layers of darkness, one upon the other. If he puts out his hand, he cannot see it” (Quran 24:40)

The striking resemblance between the Quranic verse and the science is obvious! How could a book, which first appeared in the deserts of Arabia 1400 years ago, contain these profound scientific truth?

Indeed these are signs for a people who use reason. (Quran 2: 164)

Allah approaches human beings through a scientific pathway to address their minds.

 



Art of Islamic world

“Art of Islamic world” this phrase creates in our mind a sketch of beauty related to Islamic world. Can you feel it???.... Yeah! I can, as I imagine the Taj Mahal, Dome of the Rock,a Mina’i ware bowl, a silk carpet, a Qur‘an—and all of these are examples of Islamic art.

More commonly, however, the term is extended to include all of the arts produced by Muslim peoples, whether connected with their religion or not.

 According to Shelley Esaak

“Art is something ……….pleasing to our eyes”

To Plato, art was imitation of nature. The Muslim artists do not attempt to imitate nature as it is, but tries to convey what it represents

Actually, art is a name of “sense of beauty” that we extract from nature according to our inner ability to take out prettiness from abundance.

Islamic world is full of such a good looking masterpieces in the form of calligraphy, architectural work and floral work etc.

As the authentic saying of Prophet Muhammad which was narrated by Al-Boukhari:

"Allah is beautiful and loves beauty."

The Qur’an – the best example of calligraphy- written in elegant scripts, represents Divine word, which Muhammad (peace be upon him) received directly from Allah during his visions. Quranic verses, executed in calligraphy, are found on many different forms of art and architecture.

Likewise, poetry and verses can be found on everything from ceramic bowls to the walls of houses.

                                          Calligraphic art on wall 

In Islam, writing has high status. It works as significant decoration for objects and buildings. And books are a major art-form.

Early examples of religious art and architecture, such as the Dome of the Rock and the Aqsa Mosque—both in Jerusalem)—and the Great Mosque of Damascus—built under the Umayyad rulers.

One of the most famous monuments of Islamic art is the Taj Mahal, a royal mausoleum, located in Agra, India and the Egyptian architectural work.

                Taj Mahal, Agra, India  

There are some misconceptions about Islam that Islam promotes harsh and simple living and rejects sophistication and comfort is an accusation often made by orient list academics.

 This false claim is rejected by Qur’an. 

"Say, who is there to forbid the beauty which God has brought forth for his servants, and the good things from among the means of sustenance" (Qur'an 7:32)

In Islamic art, influences from other cultures are also visible. No doubt, the art of the Islamic world reflects its cultural values, and reveals the way Muslims view the spiritual realm and the universe. As for the Muslim, reality begins with Allah and He is the real focus of their lives. So, Islamic art focuses on the spiritual representation of objects and beings, not their physical qualities.

The Biggest & The Fastest Growing Religion Of The World

How it's possible that almost among 4,200 religions of the world 1 is spreading astonishingly!! Yeah! It's possible and it is very explosive matter of today’s world.

As you know a religion is a “Strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny”.

And, in this universe that strong Supernatural Power is just one (wahdaaniyat) - the message of every Messenger of Almighty- so the ruling power must be of the one religion.

                       If we look at the biggest religion which is Christianity but if we look the fastest growing religion that is Islam.

Foremost reason of growing Islam as a fastest religion is, in other religions as well as world’s biggest religion (Christianity) has no ability to provide peace of heart and mind

as Almighty Himself says;

            “Verily, in the Remembrance of Allah do find rest” (SUBHAN ALLAH)

According to James A. Michener (1907-1997);

 "No other religion in history spread so rapidly as Islam . . . The West has widely believed that this surge of religion was made possible by the sword. But no modern scholar accepts that idea, and the Qur'an is explicit in support of the freedom of conscience." [Islam - The Misunderstood Religion, Readers' Digest (American Edition) May 1955].

BY concerning to "The Almanac Book of Facts",

 the population increased 137% within the past decade and the Christianity increased 46%, while Islam increased 235%.

If I here just speak about America, 100,000 people per year alone, are converting to Islam.
Actually, people are longing for holiness and Islam is offering it. The Quran breaks hard hearts and heal broken hearts



“A WOMAN” IN VIEW OF QURAN and BIBLE

                  It's quite easy to know that many of us - those from the West and the East - have negative images of women in Islam: the uneducated woman who has no say in decision making, the pregnant mother who does household chores all day, the subservient wife who suffers under the abuse of her dictatorial husband. The western perception in general and the western media in specific have specialized in portraying these images.

And Today people think that women are liberated in the west and that the women's liberation movement began in the 20th Century. Actually the women's liberation movement was revealed by God to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in the seventh century.

 

Here I share a concise comparison (by Hashmina Samreen ) for your knowledge between two (Quran & Bible) and leaving its conclusion upon you.

 

1.The Bible Convicts Women as the original sinners, (ie. Eve picking from the forbidden tree){Genesis 2:4-3:24}.

The Quran Clarifies it was Adam Not Eve {Qur'an 7:19-25}

2. The Bible says "The Birth of a Daughter is a loss" {Ecclesiastics 22:3}.

 The Qur'an says both are an Equal Blessing { Qur'an 42:49}
 

3. The Bible Forbids Women from Speaking in church {I Corinthians 14:34-35}.

 The Qur'an says women can argue with the Prophet {58:1}
 

4. In the Bible, divorced Women are labeled as an Adulteress, while men are not {Matthew Qu5:31-32}.

The Quran does Not have Biblical double standards {Qur'an 30:21}

5. In The Bible, Widows and Sisters do not inherit any Property or Wealth, Only men do{Numbers 27:1-11}

The Quran Abolished this male greediness { Qur'an 4:22} and God Protects All.
 

6. The Bible Allows Multiple Wives{I Kings 11:3}

In The Quran, God limits the number to 4 only under certain situations (with the Wife's permission)and Prefers you Marry only one wife {Qur'an 4:3}

7. The Bible also asks Women to wear veils as in Islam {I Corinthians 11:3-10}, this lowers the

chance of rape, (God Forbid)

8. Women were given rights to Vote less than a 100 years ago in the (US),

while the Quran (42:38) gave women Voting rights almost 1,500 years ago.

 



FAITH IN ALLAH

FAITH
1. Definition of faith 
2. Basic principles of faith 
3. The fruits of faith 
Basic principles of faith 
1. Faith in Allah (Tauheed / oneness of Allah )
 2. Faith in prophets (Nubuwwat and Risalat ) 
3. The life in the Hereafter (Day of judgment )

Definition of faith
 Belief in the special terminology of Islam, means to believe in the Prophets of God as such, that is to acknowledge that for our guidance God had vouchsafed to them knowledge that was beyond the range of our intelligence and understanding, and, on the basis of it, to affirm what was communicated to us by them as from God, and to accept religion brought by them as Divine religion.
Basic principles of faith 
1.    “FAITH IN ALLAH”
“Faith in Allah is based on four premises”
 1. Allah exists and nobody created Him. 
2. He alone is the Lord of the whole Universe. 
3. He alone is the Master and He alone is authorized to make any modifications in the universe according to His will.
 4. He alone is to be exclusively worshipped and He has no associates.

The existence of Allah
 The Qur’an has clearly told us that the proof of the existence of Allah lies within our selves. How can we, then deny something which is writ large on our very foreheads as the proof of its veracity Allah says. “Who have sure faith, and within your own selves, so do you not see?” 
in the very depths of our hearts, it is etched that Allah exists. When struck with hardships and misfortune, we seek his shelter because of our faithful nature and religious instinct. There are, within us and all around us numerous proofs of His existence. Our sub conscious that is our heart, unconsciously in Him, but our conscious self, that is our reason, accepts His existence.
He alone is the Lord of the whole Universe.
The second dogma of faith is that Allah is the Sustainer of the whole Universe. It means that you have to believe from the depth of your heart that Allah alone is the Creator of the entire world. He alone created, out of nothing, the living organisms, the heavenly bodies and the entire visible as well as invisible world. He devised such marvelous canons for all these worlds that the Scholars of medicine, chemistry, physics and astronomy, have been able to discover only a few of them. He alone has the Full knowledge about every big or small thing of all these worlds. It is written with Him that how many leaves a tree has, what shape does a leaf carry, or how many germs float in this world and what is their size and volume and what are their constituents. He only knows how many rotating electrons an atom has, what transitory changes occur in them, what the nature of their statics and dynamics is, what forms they take and what the characteristic of their transformation are.

He alone is the Master and He alone is authorized to make any modifications in the universe according to His will.
 Thus, He is the sustainer of the world. He gave from to everything and he looks after them. He makes alteration and changes in their conditions and character. He has predetermined every detail and has placed such proofs in each atom of this universe that every person with sufficient reason can trace Him and seek guidance from him. This is the second dogma of faith and it is obligatory to accept it and believe it.
 But, does one become a believer by just accepting this as an article of faith? Someone declares before you that Allah alone is the creator of this universe and He alone is the sustainer of everything. Would you accept him as a believer just because of his declaration? Nay, this declaration alone is not enough to be a believer, because many nations of the antiquity made this declaration. The idolaters of the Quresh, whose fetishism the prophet Muhammad repudiated and those against whom he waged Jihad, also declared Allah the God of Gods and never denied his existence
He alone is to be exclusively worshipped and He has no association.
 When you admit that Allah exists, is the Sustainer of the worlds, is the lord of the incomparable Kingdom, then it follows out of necessity that there should be no associate with Him in worship nor should anyone besides him be worshipped in any form or shape to be construed as his adversary. By the Grace of Allah, I had the good fortune to arrive at a point in the interpretation of the Surah An-Nas(114), which no other exegesis carries for the guidance of those who admit that Allah exists is the master of all and is the lord of the worlds yet do not display that unadulterated belief in the unity of Allah which indeed is a requirement of the divinity of Allah this Surah says:
Thou say: “I came under the shelter of the Lord of men, The King of men, The God of men (114, 1-3)

Virtual Reality or Virtual Realities (VR)

New inventions are found to fulfill the demand of the human needs. Scientists are never satisfied with what have already found. They always do experiments to find the betterment of technology that can be used effectively and efficiently. It is not an easy job of course. However, they never stop to create something new for the future generations.

 

One of the proofs what have already done by scientists is the invention of Virtual Reality or Virtual Realities which is abbreviated into VR. It is now to be one of the sophisticated technologies in this era. But, what is actually VR? Have you ever heard about it? What are its functions? Read the following information if you want to know more about VR. This information will be valuable to increase your knowledge about the new system.

 

What is Virtual Reality (VR)?

 

VR is derived from ‘virtual’ and ‘reality’. ‘Virtual’ means as the same in which the things seen that look the real in appearance and behavior, but it is not the real thing. Then, the word ‘reality’ is real, like the real one. Therefore, VR can be described as seeing something like experiencing the real one. It can be said as an environment replication.

 

Generally, many people also call VR as an immersed multimedia. Some say it as a computer-stimulated reality. It is because VR is used in the computer technology to make a stimulating environment in order that the thing looks as the real one. Using VR, people are able to experience the real senses of vision, hearing, touching, and smelling. Those senses are actually like what we have learned in the school. Yet, the human being actually has more than those.

 

The examples are a sense of humor, sense of balance, and many others. They are processed in our brain. The combination of our brain and information which we get is resulting in experiencing of reality. The presence of the sense with information influences the perception of reality. Someone seems to see the real thing that actually is not there, but it can be perceived as the real one from his/her perspective. This is then called as virtual reality (VR).

 

What are VR functions?

VR is used in various fields; architecture, sports, medicine, arts, entertainment, and much more. The popular systems which use the VR are such as headsets, 3D glasses, special gloves, and treadmills. Besides, VR can also be used in immersed films and videos.

 

The obvious one of the function of VR is in the training activity such as in medical fields. The trainees do not need practice in the real field in which it could be dangerous. By using VR, their skills could be improved much better without any consequence, they will face when doing the training. This is like in the medical field.

 

In the medical field, the VR uses when training to use expensive equipment, dangerous situation, and sensitive technology. The doctor candidate will not practice using the expensive equipment. They will also practice in the dangerous area in which their life is put in. Therefore, VR is needed to fulfill this demand.

 

In the video game and film, VR is used to give the effect of graphic, sound, and input. The animation is also created using this VR to make the picture look like the real one. This is to make the user feel like they do the real adventure by playing games or watching films. This is really cool, isn’t it? Experiencing like the real one, we join the movie or games.

 

The new technology which uses this VR is Virtual reality glasses or goggles. Using this glasses, the users can experience like having direct interact with. These glasses are used as the display device which shows a characteristic feature of the virtual environment. It can be concluded that VR is a sophisticated system that is very fruitful for many fields in order to minimize the bad/danger effect.

 

Those are the information about Virtual Reality or Virtual Realities (VR). After reading this information, you must understand much better about VR which actually you find in your daily life. This sophisticated system makes the human gaining the more real adventures without putting their life in the danger area.

Sheree Friedman’s fine art background and undergrad in architecture from Pratt Institute surface in her mixed media works; architectural sections of Greenhouses are glimpsed through layer upon layer of floating orchids, figures, seed pods and light orbs, all adrift in “A Sea of Memories”.  

Prints are created, from her collages, made of original drawings, found images, zine clippings, acetate, old photos, architectural plans, dried plants, sand, and other materials. These prints are enhanced with layers of oil, acrylic and additional collaging. The final High Definition print image is resin coated and matte plexi sandwiched to further enhance the underwater and reflective qualities of the work.

Friedman’s work ranges from figurative to abstraction, and is often laced with soft purples and subtle light. Her  experience with meditation and as an energy healer, manifest “warm waves” in the artwork that release stress and  worldly concerns. She describes the viewing of art as a form of meditative absorption, a method that leads to true understanding. “When I work, either as a channel for assisting others with their healing or creating artworks, I connect with my own inner divinity and light,” Friedman says. “This enables me to best sense, witness, and connect with core energies in all things.”

Why you should use Low Smoke cables

In past few years, the advancement in Fire safety ‘low smoke’ materials has raised the development of new, safer, non-hazardous equipment in the market. This led to establishment of Low Smoke Cables. The service providers are now advised to install non-hazardous and low smoke cables in public areas and buildings, for the safety of public in case of fire. In case of Fire accidents poisonous gases and dense smoke are produced that dangerously affects the lives of people.

   The Low smoke cables produce very less smoke and non-poisonous gases that are safe for the lives of victims of fire accidents. These low smoke cables contain halogen free compounds that produce lesser amount of poisonous and corrosive gases during combustion. They are often installed in poorly ventilated areas and underground tunnel systems. This will reduce the toxic gas accumulation in these areas in case of fire, and will be really helpful in saving the precious lives.

Halogens and their harmful effects

   Halogens are name given to a chemical family that includes the chemicals like chlorine, fluorine, bromine, astatine and iodine. These halogens are widely used in our various daily-use products because of their flame retardant nature. They are also present in PVC (polyvinyl chloride), which is a coating that makes up cable jackets and many electronic products. On burning, these halogenated compounds forms poisonous gases, which turns into dangerous Hydrochloric acid when comes in contact with water.  In areas with limited escape and poor ventilation, the dense black smoke weakens the visibility of people and suffocates their throat, which may lead to loss of lives.

 

Traditional cables v/s Low smoke cables

  Traditional cables are coated with halogen compounds like PVC which is good fire retardant, but if ignited can produce toxic gases and acid. Most of the network cables are coated with chlorine-contained plastic material which is a halogenated compound and will become toxic when exposed to flame.

 

Low Smoke Halogen Free (LSHF) cables: A harmless substitute

   The low smoke halogen free (LSHF or LSZH) cable contains non-halogenated compounds which are still good flame resilient materials and produce very low smoke when burnt. The gas produced with burning of low smoke halogen free material is non-toxic and does not form any type of acid when come in contact with water.

   The Low Smoke Zero Halogen (LSZH) cable design incorporates halogen free materials for cable insulation and cable jacket. According to International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards these low smoke cables must pass three tests that are:

  • Halogen content: - The cable should not contain halogen.
  • Low Smoke Density:-The smoke density should be lower than a threshold value.
  • Flame propagation: - The flame propagation should be slow.

 

These low smoke cables are available in many variants such as:

  • Low smoke halogen free (LSHF)cables (for general public areas)
  • LSHF oil resistant cables (for damp and dry environmental condition areas)
  • Screened bedded LSHF oil resistant cables
  • Screened/unscreened LSHF data cables (for high density and high value public areas)
  • Screened LSHF twisted pair data cables and many more...

   These LSZH cables are very popular in aircraft, railway and shipbuilding industry where, due to poor ventilation facilities and restricted escape, the protection of people and equipment from poisonous and corrosive gases become very important. These Low smoke cables are highly recommended cables to be installed at public places, airports, and railway stations where human lives and valuable property are uncovered to threat of fire dangers.

Grow plants in your environment

The Growing Environment

Make your grow room a plant paradise 

It is possible to set up an indoor growing area just about anywhere in your house, shed or garage. Here are a few suggestions of places that might be suitable and point out some of the plant’s essential needs that must be taken into account when setting up.

To understand just what your plants require, imagine a sunny corner of the garden on a calm summer’s day. Most plants will grow well in the conditions that prevail on an English summer’s day and these are the conditions that need to be recreated in an indoor growing area. We have grouped the growing conditions under the four headings of Light,TemperatureHumidity and Atmosphere.

 

Light is the single most important thing for you to consider. Obviously, if you wish to grow plants in your basement for instance, you will have to provide all the light yourself and you will need to provide a lot if you are to recreate the conditions of a summer’s day. Fortunately, modern horticultural lighting is more than capable of doing this in an efficient and cost effective manner.

One can start by assuming that you have no natural light whatsoever in your chosen growing area. Obviously, if you have a window or skylight, this will reduce the amount of light that you have to provide but in most cases, this is not especially significant. There are other problems associated with using natural light, such as the inability to control the hours of darkness. The easiest and most efficient way to grow plants indoors is to do it in a dark area and provide all the light yourself. For greenhouse growers, the need to use extra light is limited to the darker months of the year.

Another thing to consider under the heading of light is the level of reflection in your growing area. A well designed grow room will get the maximum benefit from the light that is used in it and it is of great importance to get the best reflection of available light.

Temperature

Temperature is another important design parameter of your grow room and it is something that must be borne in mind from the beginning. Most plant species will grow most effectively in the temperature range of 20-28°C, the mid-twenties being optimal. It will not be difficult to maintain this sort of temperature in your room while the lights are on as they are a great source of heat as well as light. If temperatures should become too high, a simple extractor fan should serve to reduce them. This extractor can be easily linked to a thermostat to ensure that your room never reaches the high temperatures that can have a negative effect on growth rates. When your lights are off, however, you can expect a gradual decline in temperatures. In the colder parts of the year, they will drop well below the ideal growth range. Recent research has shown that night cycle temperatures are just as significant as day cycle temperatures in plant production and it is in fact the relationship between them that has most effect on the final shape and productivity of the plant. It is important to avoid large temperature fluctuations between the day and night cycles as this can lead to weak and poorly formed plants. It is ideal for most species to try and bring day and night temperatures as close together as possible and this is not as difficult as it sounds.

Humidity

Humidity is another important consideration in grow room management. If it is allowed to get too high for prolonged periods, it will cause problems both in your room and among your plants. The main danger is the development of Botrytis or grey mould among the flowers or fruit. This organism thrives in conditions of high humidity and will quickly spread and ruin a crop. Plants of the melon family and strawberries are particularly susceptible to fungal diseases and should be provided with a dry environment. The cautious grower will always monitor the humidity in his grow room which is measured by another simple device called a hygrometer. This is a dial type instrument that can be mounted on the wall next to the Max-Min thermometer and will give a constant and accurate reading of humidity. The ideal humidity for normal plant raising would not be much above 50%. If it rises above this, the grower will normally operate his extractor fan until it has been reduced. To keep this potential problem under check, it is advisable to avoid leaving water on the floor which can then evaporate and raise humidity. Any water or nutrient solution that spills or overflows should be wiped up promptly and nutrient tanks should be covered at all times. Any water that is left exposed to the heat from your grow lights will rapidly evaporate and add to the humidity levels. Keep your greenhouse or grow room dry.

Atmosphere

The fourth variable that needs to be taken into account at the design stage is the atmosphere or air in the grow room and it is here the grower is often faced with a dilemma. On the one hand there is a strong requirement for a continuous supply of fresh air. Growing plants need a constant supply of carbon dioxide to maintain growth. CO2 is present in normal fresh air at the rate of around 330 parts per million (ppm). If you try to grow plants in a closed and sealed room you will quickly run into problems. As the plants grow they will rapidly use up the available CO2 which can drop to less than a third of normal levels within one hour. At this point, plant growth will effectively cease. To maintain normal atmospheric levels of this essential gas, the grower would be advised to run an extractor continuously as well as providing an input point, such as an open door or window, for the fresh air to enter the room. The problem with this of course is that the extractor will reduce temperatures and the grower may not wish to run it any more than necessary to maintain temperatures in the desired zone. It may also not be convenient to leave a door or window open on a long term basis. Fortunately, modern technology has provided simple answers to the grower’s dilemma as carbon dioxide can be added to the atmosphere in the grow room which reduces the need for fresh air being brought in. CO2 can be introduced from bottles which can be rented from Esoteric Hydroponics, or it can be produced by burning propane.
 



How to become multimillionaire

Position yourself for growth in 2017—join us live at the Entrepreneur 360™ Conference in Long Beach, Calif. on Nov. 16. Secure Your Seat »

In a special webcast on April 28, 2015, 5 p.m. EST, Grant Cardone will show you how to make millions of dollars for your business using the phone. Register now for this webcast and you could earn gifts for participating. 

First, understand that you no longer want to be just a millionaire. You want to become a multimillionaire.

While you may think a million dollars will give you financial security, it will not. Given the volatility in economies, governments and financial markets around the world, it's no longer safe to assume a million dollars will provide you and your family with true security. In fact, a Fidelity Investments' study of millionaires last year found that 42 percent of them don't feel wealthy and they would need $7.5 million of investable assets to start feeling rich.

This isn't a how-to on the accumulation of wealth from a lifetime of saving and pinching pennies. This is about generating multimillion-dollar wealth and enjoying it during the creation process. To get started, consider these seven secrets of multimillionaires.

No. 1: Decide to Be a Multimillionaire -- You first have to decide you want to be a self-made millionaire. I went from nothing—no money, just ideas and a lot of hard work—to create a net worth that probably cannot be destroyed in my lifetime. The first step was making a decision and setting a target. Every day for years, I wrote down this statement: "I am worth over $100,000,000!"

No. 2: Get Rid of Poverty Thinking -- There's no shortage of money on planet Earth, only a shortage of people who think correctly about it. To become a millionaire from scratch, you must end the poverty thinking. I know because I had to. I was raised by a single mother who did everything possible to put three boys through school and make ends meets. Many of the lessons she taught me encouraged a sense of scarcity and fear: "Eat all your food; there are people starving," "Don't waste anything," "Money doesn't grow on trees." Real wealth and abundance aren't created from such thinking. 

No. 3: Treat it Like a Duty -- Self-made multimillionaires are motivated not just by money, but by a need for the marketplace to validate their contributions. While I have always wanted wealth, I was driven more by my need to contribute consistent with my potential. Multimillionaires don't lower their targets when things get tough. Rather, they raise expectations for themselves because they see the difference they can make with their families, company, community and charities.

No. 4: Surround Yourself with Multimillionaires -- I have been studying wealthy people since I was 10 years old. I read their stories and see what they went through. These are my mentors and teachers who inspire me. You can't learn how to make money from someone who doesn't have much. Who says, "Money won't make you happy"? People without money. Who says, "All rich people are greedy"? People who aren't rich. Wealthy people don't talk like that. You need to know what people are doing to create wealth and follow their example: What do they read? How do they invest? What drives them? How do they stay motivated and excited? 

No. 5: Work Like a Millionaire -- Rich people treat time differently. They buy it, while poor people sell it. The wealthy know time is more valuable than money itself, so they hire people for things they're not good at or aren't a productive use of their time, such as household chores. But don't kid yourself that those who hit it big don't work hard. Financially successful people are consumed by their hunt for success and work to the point that they feel they are winning and not just working.

No. 6: Shift Focus from Spending to Investing -- The rich don't spend money; they invest. They know the U.S. tax laws favor investing over spending. You buy a house and can't write it off. The rich, in contrast, buy an apartment building that produces cash flow, appreciates and offers write-offs year after year. You buy cars for comfort and style. The rich buy cars for their company that are deductible because they are used to produce revenue.

No. 7: Create Multiple Flows of Income -- The really rich never depend on one flow of income but instead create a number of revenue streams. My first business had been generating a seven-figure income for years when I started investing cash in multifamily real estate. Once my real estate and my consulting business were churning, I went into a third business developing software to help retailers improve the customer experience.

Lastly, you may be surprised to learn that wealthy people wish you were wealthy, too. It's a mystery to them why others don't get rich. They know they aren't special and that wealth is available to anyone who wants to focus and persist. Rich people want others to be rich for two reasons: first, so you can buy their products and services, and second, because they want to hang out with other rich people. Get rich -- it's American.



Reduce 20 pounds weight in 7 days

OK – so you want to lose weight, and no bones about it – you want to do it fast.

That’s possible!

What’s not possible is losing like 50 pounds in the matter of a few hours… unless you do some serious liposuction surgery.

But if you’re looking for a powerful plan to lose weight, get rid of belly fat, and fit into your skinny jeans in the nick of time – you’ve come to the right place.

Because I’m going to be honest up front – if you really want to lose weight fast, you’re going to have to do some work, and you’re going to have to follow this plan.

So what is the plan? Good question.

What Is The Plan?

What I’m talking about here is combining a strict diet plan with proper exercise. That’s the absolute best way to lose weight – and to lose weight naturally.

Take The Quiz: Which Veggies Fight Abdominal Fat?

Click here to take our quick (and VERY surprising) “Which Veggies Fight Abdominal Fat” Quiz right now and find out which unique veggies will shred abdominal fat…

The Right Diet Plan

One of my favorite diet plans (and one of the most popular) is the GM diet plan – or the General Motors diet plan (3).

Yes – the same general motors as the car manufacturer. I know, it’s weird, lets’ move on.

This GM diet plan works for all age groups, and people have lost up to 17 pounds in a single week by following it.

If you want to follow it, you have to be prepared. This is a strict diet plan – and it requires a lot of discipline on your part. If you want it to work, and you want to lose up to 17 pounds in a week, you’re going to have to have your mind right before you start.

How do you get your mind right? Well, first, you have to accept one very important point – the fastest way to lose weight is by NOT being hungry.

If you’re hungry, your craving for junk food will go through the roof. That’s going to undermine any diet or weight loss plan.

Therefore, you have to make sure to pick a plan that DOESN’T require that you go hungry – and the GM plan is it.

It’s a 7 day plan that will require discipline – but also help you hit your weight loss goals. Let’s start:

GM Diet Day 1

OK – this is the gateway to your diet, the door you step through – and therefore it’s the most important day. Treat it accordingly.

The first day of the GM diet is an all fruit day. That’s right, you heard me correctly – all fruit all the time.
