Category: gzianuamasoamfuy Harper met Bruce Carsons former escort lover at 24 Sussex party

first_imgBy Kenneth Jackson and Jorge BarreraATPN National NewsBruce Carson took his former fiancee Barbara Lynn Khan to meet Prime Minister Stephen Harper on the grounds of his official residence during a going away party for the prime minister’s outgoing chief of staff Ian Brodie.Khan told APTN that she found Harper “approachable” and “friendly” during a conversation.A Conservative Party spokesperson confirmed Monday that Khan visited the grounds of 24 Sussex during the June 2008 garden party.Khan was deported to Canada from the U.S in 2006 on a felony conviction stemming from her part in running an escort agency in Charlotte, North Carolina.“I can confirm that (Khan) was at Mr. Brodie’s farewell party at 24 Sussex,” said Conservative Party spokesperson Alykhan Velshi, in an email. “That’s the only time we are aware of that she visited 24 Sussex.”Khan said her conversation with Harper dispelled in her mind the caricature of the prime minister often portrayed in the media.“I was surprised because Harper is portrayed as being cold and indifferent, which I did not see a hint of that evening,” said Khan.“Mrs. (Laureen) Harper was genuinely warm and an incredibly gracious hostess…Everyone attending was pleasant and the evening was an experience I will always remember.”Carson, a former senior adviser to the prime minister, is currently the focus of an RCMP investigation triggered by a request from the Prime Minister’s Office.Carson met Khan by chance on an Ottawa street shortly after she came back to Canada and was working as an escort. Their relationship ended last year after about four years.The PMO made the written request to the RCMP after an official met with APTN reporters investigating Carson’s lobbying activities for an Ottawa-based water filtration company. The company was seeking to sell its product to First Nations communities hard hit by dirty water.The company, H2O Pros which later formed H2O Global Group to deal with potential contracts, also had a financial agreement with Michele McPherson, a former Ottawa escort who Carson said was his fiancee.Carson met McPherson in March 2010 and Khan in 2006.APTN obtained emails written by Carson where he promoted the company to Indian Affairs officials. Carson also claimed to have inside government knowledge in the emails.Brodie was Harper’s chief of staff until he left the post on July 1, 2008.In an email to APTN, Brodie said he remembered Carson at the party, but not Khan.“I remember Bruce was there, but otherwise, can’t help,” said Brodie.The PMO referred questions about Khan’s presence at 24 Sussex to the Conservative Party.The PMO, however, continues to refuse comment on whether Carson, who had only Secret-level clearance, had access to Top Secret information on Afghanistan and on Canadian allies involved in the war.Quoting an anonymous source, the Toronto Star reported last week that Carson had access to Top Secret information after he was handed the Afghanistan file.“We don’t comment on security matters,” said the PMO in an emailed statement.Brodie told APTN he doubted Carson had access to Top Secret files, which were handled separately and securely.The Canadian Security Intelligence Service, Department of National Defence and Foreign Affairs all referred questions on the matter to the Privy Council Office (PCO).A PCO spokesman said there would be no comment on current or former employees.Harper has faced questions throughout the election campaign over how Carson could have obtained security clearance with five criminal convictions on his record and two bankruptcies.Harper has said he was only aware of Carson’s two criminal convictions in the 1980s, not the three convictions in 1990 uncovered by The Canadian Press.Harper said he would not have hired Carson is he knew the full extent of his criminal record.Carson, who told APTN he was a close friend of Harper, said he disclosed everything during the security clearance process, which was handled by mid-level PCO officials.kennethbrianjackson@gmail.comjbarrera@aptn.calast_img read more

Category: gzianuamasoamfuy Pipe band raises cheer at China beer festival

Gordon Black reflects on a lifetime of playing bagpipes.“I was five years old, growing up in Scotland,” Black says in his still thick Scottish accent. “My father and brother were pipers, so it was kind of natural for me to fall into it.”He began teaching young people both in Paris and Port Dover in 1991. And, as the ranks grew, the two bands were amalgamated in 2000 into the Paris-Port Dover Pipe Band.In the 19 years with Black at the helm as pipe major, the band has earned a world-class reputation and is in demand far and wide.Black says the band may be better known in other parts of the world than here at home.“They don’t see us much here. Perhaps on parade on Canada Day, or a smaller performance at Applefest (in St. George), but I don’t think people understand what and who we are.”The pipe major rhymes off a list of destinations the band has been invited to play, including France, Holland, twice in Greece, four times in both Switzerland and the world championships in Scotland. The band has twice been invited to play on the floodlit esplanade of Edinburgh Castle in the prestigious Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, with another invite in the works for 2021.The band has also performed at concerts by rock legends Rod Stewart and Paul McCartney.“We’re pretty well respected,” Black says.Life is slowly getting back to normal for Black after the band’s recent trip to China. Contracted to play for four weeks at the 29th annual Qingdao Beer Festival, Black is still in awe of the size of the event.“It’s bigger than Oktoberfest,” he remarks, adding the festival grounds are twice the size of Canada’s Wonderland north of Toronto. “It was a cultural experience for everyone. The food is different, and we were performing with groups from Mexico, Brazil, Russia, and Germany, even a bluegrass group from the United States. We were immersed in a lot of different stuff.”The pipe band did two performances each night, for 24 nights. Each show was 30 minutes or more, and the final nightly performance included a rendition of Queen’s We Will Rock You with Brazilian drummers and other performers joining in.“It was one big party,” Black recalls. “We tore the place apart. The Chinese just loved it.”A small break in the rigorous schedule came when the festival was evacuated for two days due to a typhoon. Confined to their hotel further inland, the band jammed with other performers.“It was hot,” Black says. “We were wearing our uniforms, the heat was 50 degrees every day. Before the typhoon came through it was unbearable, we were just drenched every night. But it was a spectacle and that’s what they paid us to do.”Black arranged to have the band’s wool uniforms dry-cleaned and pressed during the two-day break, but the tunics and kilts were returned wet and rolled up into balls. He spent the entire next day ironing all the kilts.The triumphs and tribulations of international touring behind him for another year, Black now turns his attention to the future.“Roughly 28 years I’ve been going at this,” he says. “I’ve got a couple of young guys who are stepping up to the plate, and I’m handing off more and more to them.While Black sees retirement on the horizon, he says he’ll still be involved, especially with instructing young pipers.And he’s planning something special for the pipe band’s 20th anniversary next year.“We’re taking it back to the Lighthouse Theatre” in Port Dover, hints the pipe major. “That’s where we started.” read more

Category: gzianuamasoamfuy DR of Congo UN refugee and food agencies gear up relief efforts

This morning an aircraft from the UN peacekeeping mission in the DRC left the capital, Kinshasa, with 17 tonnes of relief items, a spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said in Geneva. The items will be ferried by helicopter to the town of Zongo, where some 15,000 refugees are occupying schools, churches and other public buildings. Yesterday, a UNHCR-chartered aircraft made several trips there, delivering tonnes of plastic sheeting, blankets, mats and jerry cans.Zongo is about 1 kilometre across the river border from the Central African Republic capital, Bangui. Up to 7,000 refugees also remain scattered across 20 villages along the DRC side of the Oubangui River, while another 3,000 to 4,000 gathered in the town of Libenge.Meanwhile, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) today launched an appeal for $2.1 million to fund an emergency humanitarian air operation in the DRC as part of the agency’s ongoing effort to widen access in that country.The six-month operation would enable aid workers to fly across the country’s frontlines to remote areas to assess the needs of war-torn populations and set up relief operations, WFP said.The first stage is expected to begin in early August and will be able to transport 19 passengers or two tonnes of light items, such as medicines, from Kinshasa to the eastern city of Goma.Since mid-June, WFP has flown crucial food aid to severely malnourished children in isolated areas of Katanga province. Its emergency airlift operation has so far delivered about 400 tonnes of food into four towns caught in the crossfire of armed factions but has been unable to reach two others due to insecurity and poor airstrips. read more

Nicolas Michel, who is also the Under-Secretary-General for Legal Affairs, will continue the ongoing discussions with the Lebanese authorities aimed at establishing the tribunal as called for by Security Council resolution 1664, spokesman Stephane Dujarric said. The 15-member Council adopted the resolution in March.The UN has been investigating the killings through the work of its International Independent Investigation Commission (IIIC), led by Serge Brammertz. Earlier this year the Council extended the investigation’s mandate through 15 June 2007.Mr. Hariri and 22 others were killed on 14 February last year in a car bomb attack in the Lebanese capital Beirut.In a detailed report to the Council in June on the IIIC’s work, Mr. Brammertz said the “fundamental building blocks for the investigation into the crime” were now largely understood “and provide the basis for investigative progress with regard to those who perpetrated the crime.” The IIIC was set up in April 2005 after an earlier UN mission found Lebanon’s own investigation seriously flawed and Syria primarily responsible for the political tension preceding Mr. Hariri’s murder. read more

Category: gzianuamasoamfuy BBC apologises to Prince Harry for failing to warn him they were

The BBC has apologised to the Duke of Sussex for failing to warn him that they planned to publish graphic neo-Nazi propaganda calling him a “race traitor”. The corporation, which defends the decision to broadcast the image around the world, has written to the Duke about the “important piece of journalism”, which is said to have caused “great distress” to the Royal Family. The “very graphic” image, which showed Prince Harry with a gun to his head, raised “serious security concerns” for the Sussexes “specifically while his wife was nearly five months pregnant”, a palace spokesman said. After the Duke made a formal complaint to the BBC via aides, the matter was investigated by the corporation and Ofcom but found to have been in the public interest. The BBC has now written to the Duke to acknowledge that “before publishing seriously offensive material we need to be vigilant in balancing the impact on individuals against the wider good which may be served by publication.”A source said: “Naturally we regret the distress caused and we apologised for failing to warn Kensington Palace in advance that it was to be published.”  Ofcom received one complaint about the broadcast, but did not uphold it. A spokesman said: “This image was highly offensive, but in our opinion, its inclusion in the article was editorially justified as it was used to condemn and illustrate the racist group’s activities, which was in the public interest.”A BBC source said: “This was an important piece of journalism which led to the arrest, conviction and imprisonment of two members of a neo-Nazi group.  “The image of The Duke of Sussex was included to show the abhorrent nature of their behaviour and OFCOM has subsequently concluded that there was a clear editorial rationale for using the image which, in the context of the news report, was considered unlikely to incite crime.” Prince Harry Credit:Chris Jackson Prince Harry  A spokesman for the Duke said that, while he welcomed the letter, he “maintains that instead of reproducing the image and giving a platform to something that would have only been seen by a few, it should have just been described so that others would not potentially be influenced by such an inflammatory image”.  The picture, published on the BBC website and broadcast on the News at Ten in December 2018, is described by Ofcom as propaganda, and a “stylised collage image that depicted His Royal Highness, The Duke of Sussex with a gun pointed at his head” along with “a blood splatter, a swastika, and the text ‘see ya later race traitor!’.”It was published to illustrate an investigation into a far-Right underground group called the Sonnenkrieg Division headlined “British Neo-Nazis suggest Prince Harry should be shot”.At the time, the BBC’s decision to use the image rather than simply describe it caused deep concern in the Royal Household, with sources telling the Telegraph that it had been designed to spread online as propaganda and, thanks to the corporation, had “now been more successful than [its creators] could ever have imagined.”Since the story was published, two members of the the neo-Nazi group have been convicted. A spokesperson for the Duke of Sussex said: “His Royal Highness raised the issue with Ofcom about the re-broadcasting of this racist image due to his concerns that hateful and dangerous propaganda had been spread globally by the world’s most important public service broadcaster. “Due to the credibility of BBC, their choice to publicise this material created an open door for all other media to reproduce it. “The BBC, in reporting on the activities of this group which led to the conviction of two men, reproduced the propaganda material used by the group which raised serious security concerns and caused his family great distress specifically while his wife was nearly five months pregnant.” Tony Hall, director-general of the BBCCredit:Leon Neal The Duke has met with Lord Hall, the BBC director-general, in person to discuss the issue. Prince Harry recently spoke to Jane Goodall about racism and ‘unconscious bias’ in British VogueCredit:Chris Allerton Prince Harry recently spoke to Jane Goodall about racism and 'unconscious bias' in British Vogue Tony Hall, director-general of the BBC She added: “The BBC apologised for failing to warn The Duke that this distressing image was being broadcast on their ten o’clock news, and produced on-line.“However, His Royal Highness maintains that instead of reproducing the image and giving a platform to something that would have only been seen by a few, it should have just been described so that others would not potentially be influenced by such an inflammatory image.” Michal Szewczuk, 19, admitted two counts of encouraging terrorism and five of possessing documents that could be useful to a terrorist, and, Oskar Dunn-Koczorowski, 18, pleaded guilty to encouraging terrorism.   read more

Category: gzianuamasoamfuy One in four children in Ireland are born to a nonIrish mother

first_imgA QUARTER OF all children born in Ireland in 2012 were born to a non-Irish mother, a new study has found.These results came as part of a new study conducted by Trinity College Dublin with a focus on second-generation children born to migrant parents.Speaking about the survey, principle investigator Dr Antje Röder said:There is now much greater diversity amongst young families in Ireland. This brings with it great opportunities, but also challenges that need to be addressed to ensure all children born in Ireland have opportunities to grow up to fulfil their potential.Interestingly, the study also found that it was more common for a child to have one migrant parent and one parent native to Ireland than to have two migrant parents.However, these ‘mixed’ couples were much more likely to come between UK born and the older EU member states. Relationships between an Irish parent and a partner from Africa, an EU accession state or Asia were less common.One of the themes highlighted in the study was socio-economic disadvantage experienced by groups of migrant parents. Families of second generation children were more likely to live in rented accommodation and apartments rather than houses.Parents from EU accession states, Asia and Africa were found to have higher levels of education but to be more frequently found in the semi and unskilled classes with a greater chance of encountering poverty.In the report, it was found that Irish mothers were more likely to return to work by the time the child is nine months than most immigrant mothers. The only exception to this were mothers from Asia, two thirds of those who worked prior to their pregnancies returning to work.The group least likely to return to work after a birth were mothers from EU accession states. In this group, less than one in four of those who had previously been in work returned to full time employment.READ: This glamour model sold tickets to watch her giving birth, and the internet went crazyREAD: After naming, will the government make paternity testing mandatory?last_img read more

Category: gzianuamasoamfuy Electric Jets Are Coming And They Could Halve Flight Cost

first_img Amazon Employees Join Sept. 20 Global Climate WalkoutResearchers Transform CO2 Into Liquid Fuel Stay on target While there’s a lot of ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, people don’t often look to airlines as a place where we can still make improvements. After all, while some planes can go through gallons of fuel per second, they’re also many times more efficient. As a result, it’s often far worse to drive than it is to fly — plus you spend less time getting there. Despite that, there’s still a lot of gains to make. Just a few years ago we learned that winglets, small pieces of airplane’s wing that stick up vertically, can dramatically cut down on fuel use, for example.But one start-up, Zunum Aero, wants to start bringing hybrid and even fully electric jets into the equation. The Washington-based firm will focus on small regional jets that serve high-traffic, short-haul routes like LA to San Francisco. By cutting out some of the major operating costs and focusing on small aircraft, Zunum will be able to avoid the TSA and FAA regulations that drive up the costs of flights on larger craft.The company is already hard at work on their first plane. By the early 2020s, the company should have a fleet of 10-passenger hybrid-electric jets. And, according to the Verge, but the 2030s Zunum could have all-electric 50-passenger jets.“We’re entering the golden era where we’ll have high-speed links to every community on the backs of quiet, sustainable hybrid-electric technology,” CEO Ashish Kumar told Verge. “And that’s going to happen really fast.”With Kumar’s experience at tech giants like Google and Microsoft, as well as backing from aviation giants like Boeing, Zunum’s future may be a bright one. The hope is that the general business model will help offset the costs of the technology and help bring massive reductions in flight costs for Zunum-supplied routes. Kumar hopes that this will lead to a revolution in high-speed, short-range, cheap and environmentally conscious air travel.last_img read more

Category: gzianuamasoamfuy Reliance Jio effect Indian telcos continue to register losses

first_imgMukesh AmbaniReliance Jio official website (screen-shot)It seems the disruption in the Indian telecom sector is far from over. With Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd. announcing a series of new plans in the month of June along with its entry in the broadband fibre market, the fight is likely to get stiffer.In the May-June period, the company introduced post-paid tariffs plans that were less than half of existing offers from its competitors along with the cheaper international calling rates. These strategies have completely disrupted the entire telecom sector in India that is witnessing consolidations since last year. The competitors are feeling the heat from, the RJio’s aggressive stance.In the last quarter of the fiscal year 2017-18, the revenue of two of India’s largest telecom companies Bharti Airtel Ltd and Idea Cellular Ltd has declined. Bharti Airtel Ltd reported a loss in revenue of 3.7% while Idea Cellular Ltd witnessed a decline in revenue at 5.7%.Kotak Institutional Equities have estimated that their revenue is expected to further sink between 2.5% and 3% in the Q1, FY19 on an organic basis and itis expected to further increase in the current financial year. Idea Cellular logoIdea/FacebookAccording to Kotak’s estimates, the estimated loss of Idea cellular is Rs. 1,331 crore which is way higher as against the loss of Rs. 193 crore last year. The company’s estimated Ebitda (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization) of Rs. 817 crore contributes to only two-thirds ₹1,200 crore which is its estimated interest cost.Vodafone India Ltd’s financial condition is also lacklustre due to disruption created by the new entrant in the market.Meanwhile, RJio seems to be in no mood for any let-ups to its competitors as it upped the ante in the feature phone segment after it received a muted response to its JioPhone offering.In the smartphone segment also, Jio continues to make decent growth, as its overall base has raised from 215 million subscribers in early July, as against 186.6 million in end March.It is expected that as long as RJio is making new subscribers, it is unlikely that the current levels of the tariff would come down any time soon.last_img read more

Category: gzianuamasoamfuy FATFs Asia Pacific subgroup blacklists Pakistan for terror funding

first_img Close Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.Thomas Peter-Pool/Getty ImagesIn a massive victory for India, Pakistan has been blacklisted by terror watchdog Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) Asia Pacific Group (APG). The APG — the global watchdog for terror financing and money laundering — has placed India’s nuclear-armed neighbour in the “enhanced blacklist” for its failure to meet global standards.The big development came after APG found terror state Pakistan non-compliant on 32 of the 40 compliance parameters on money-laundering and terror financing. The APG conducted a meeting at Canberra in Australia on Thursday, August 22, regarding a five-year mutual evaluation of Pakistan’s progress on upgrading its systems in areas of financial and insurance services and sectors.On 11 effectiveness parameters, Pakistan was adjudged as low as 10.On Wednesday, Pakistan had submitted the compliance report on its 27-point action plan to the FATF. Despite its efforts, the terror state was not able to convince the 41-member plenary to upgrade it on any parameter. However, Pakistan has to focus on avoiding the blacklist in October 2019, when the 15-month timeline ends on the FATF’s 27-point action plan.Earlier, Pakistan was grey-listed by the FATF following pressure from the US, France, Germany and the UK.Meanwhile, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has accused India of lobbying to get it blacklisted.”We tried really hard to normalise ties with India. But they [India] exploited the situation. They exploited the Pulwama [attack] for their elections. They have been lobbying to get us blacklisted by the FATF (Financial Action Task Force] as well,” said Imran Khan as quoted by a news agency.The Pakistani PM also accused India of creating a “war-like” situation similar to the post-Pulwama terror attack to divert the world’s attention from the Jammu and Kashmir issue.(With agency inputs) IBTimes VideoRelated VideosMore videos Play VideoPauseMute0:01/0:51Loaded: 0%0:01Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVE-0:50?Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedSubtitlessubtitles settings, opens subtitles settings dialogsubtitles off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Category: gzianuamasoamfuy Syrian troops reach border crossing with Jordan

first_imgThis Thursday, 5 July 2018 photo provided by Nabaa Media, a Syrian opposition media outlet, shows smoke rising over buildings that were hit by Syrian government forces bombardment, in Daraa province, southern Syria. Syrian state media and a war monitor say government forces have captured new areas along the border with Jordan and are on the verge of reaching a main crossing between the two countries. Photo : APSyrian government forces on Friday reached a vital border crossing with Jordan and raised the national flag for the first time in years, state media reported, reinstating sovereignty over a key region that potentially reopens the way for Syrian exports to Arab countries.State news agency SANA said the capture of the Naseeb border crossing happened Friday afternoon after a deal was reached between rebels and Russian mediators to end the violence in southern Syria.The capture of the Naseeb border crossing is another victory for president Bashar Assad’s forces, who have regained control of most of the country’s key cities from insurgents in recent years with the help of powerful allies Russia and Iran. It came after a crushing government offensive that began 19 June  to retake southern Daraa province and the nearby Quneitra region that borders the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. The assault has forced more than 330,000 residents to flee toward the sealed Jordanian border and the frontier with Israel in one of the largest displacements in the seven-year Syrian conflict. Dozens have been killed.Rebels seized control of the crossing in 2015, cutting a major lifeline for Syrian exports and disrupting a major trade route between Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and oil-rich gulf countries.There was no immediate comment from Jordan on the Syrian forces’ recapture of Naseeb crossing. On Twitter, Jordan’s foreign minister Ayman Safadi said Amman was holding talks with all parties to the Syrian crisis focused on ensuring the return of the displaced.”The solution is political and the protection of civilians, preventing their displacement and saving the (Syrian) brothers more suffering is everyone’s responsibility,” he wrote.Earlier on Friday, rebels said they reached an agreement with Russian mediators to end the violence in Daraa and surrender the Naseeb crossing point.Ibrahim Jabawi, spokesman for the rebels’ joint operations room, said under the agreement, insurgents will begin to hand over some of their heavy weapons in return for a government pullout from several villages.Jabawi added that Russian military police would deploy along the border with Jordan, including the Naseeb crossing, and that rebels opposed to the deal will be evacuated to rebel-held regions in northern Syria.The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 159 civilians have been killed since the offensive began two weeks ago, including 33 children.Friday’s agreement came after the bombardment of rebel-held areas intensified earlier this week after rebels rejected a deal with the Russians. The crushing new wave of attacks appears to have compelled the rebels to accept the deal.A Syrian man on the Syrian side of the border said he and his family have been camped out near the Jordanian border for 10 days after fleeing the bombardment and airstrikes. The 70-year-old, identifying himself only as Abu Mohammed, said Syrian troops were now heading for the border.”We are stuck here and God only knows what the regime will be doing now,” he said over the phone, with sounds of children around him.He said he was angry at Jordan for keeping its border closed “and watching us dying.” Bitterly, he added the Syrian army will now take over the crossing points with Jordan “so your (Jordan’s) economic interest will resume at our expense.”An Associated Press journalist on the Jordanian side of the border could see the Syrian side of the crossing known as Jaber, along with the former free zone, and some blue tents housing displaced people.Nabaa Media, an opposition activist collective, said the latest government assault on the area killed several people in the past 24 hours including a woman and her four children in a rebel-held village in Daraa. The agency posted a video showing what it said were the women and her children lying dead in a pickup truck.The UN children’s agency, UNICEF, said in a statement Friday it received “horrific reports” of an entire family including four children being killed. It said the latest deaths bring to 65 the number of children reported killed in less than three weeks in southern Syria alone.”In the largest wave of displacement to hit southern Syria since the start of the seven-year-long war, an estimated 180,000 children have been forced to flee their homes with little resource for protection, shelter or assistance,” UNICEF said.Earlier on Friday, the government-controlled Central Military Media said government forces now control most of the towns and villages on the eastern side of southern Daraa province.last_img read more

Category: gzianuamasoamfuy Samsung Sets Up Note 7 Exchange Booths at Major Airports

first_imgThe Galaxy Note 7 is a complete disaster for Samsung. Not only has it been recalled once, but twice, and now it’s not going to be sold anymore. It’s even illegal to try and take one aboard a flight in the US and Samsung has had to ship out fireproof packaging in order for owners to safely mail back their faulty handsets.Now there’s another way to return your Note 7, and frequent travelers will be very happy to hear that Samsung is setting up Note 7 exchange booths at major airports around the world. Yes, that’s how big this problem is for Samsung–it needs manned booths at lots of airports.So far, the booths have been spotted at airports in Australia, South Korea, and the US, but more are sure to appear. An official customer service representative will be available at each booth to ensure your data is safely transferred off the fire-risk handset and on to another device. With Samsung actively trying to help Note 7 users buy another Samsung device, I’m sure the booths will be well-stocked with shiny, new alternatives. You may even get a $100 bill credit.These booths will be an especially welcome site for any frequent flyer who doesn’t have time to travel to a store, or who purchased their Note 7 in a country they won’t be returning to for months. All they need to do is allow enough time for the booth rep to carry out the data transfer and get them setup on a new handset.If nothing else, you’ve got to commend Samsung for its response to releasing a dangerous smartphone. They are trying really hard to get all the handsets back and ensure owners aren’t left without a phone. It’s just a real shame it happened in the first place, I hear the Note 7 was a great piece of kit.last_img read more

You could even create a subscription model, where readers need to pay to view your content.However, none of those strategies are going to work if you don’t have a consistent flow of people coming to your site. That’s why the first step in making money from your blog or website is building an audience. That’s where search engine optimization (SEO) comes in.What is search engine optimization?Any time you google something, Google’s algorithm works to choose stories and posts that will answer your question. SEO is all about understanding those algorithms. That way, when someone googles something that applies to your website or blog, they won’t have to dig through several pages of results to find yours. It’ll be right at the top.For example, here’s an article I wrote:Source: Google Now, whenever anyone searches for “How to Start a Business,” they find my article in the top spot. According to Google, I am the top authority on starting a business. Not Bill Gates. Not Elon Musk.A former English major in his mid-20s with no business background is ranked ahead of Gary Vaynerchuk, Oprah Winfrey — everyone.Now, there are a lot of things that went into that top ranking, which I’ll do my best to explain in this article. But, before I do that, let’s address one broader question first.How much does being ranked highly on Google really matter?In short, a lot.You might think that using social media is the best way to get your blog or website seen. I don’t want to discount them. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and all the rest can be powerful tools to help you build a following.But, there are two great parts about being ranked highly on Google search results:Google is the highest-trafficked website in the world. Even getting a fraction of Google’s traffic is significant for your website.Optimized content can stay in the top spot for as long as it’s relevant. A Facebook post shows up in a feed for a couple of hours. One tweet might be skipped over. But a top-ranked Google post can last for months or even years. For example, I wrote my “How to Start a Business” post in October, and it’s No. 1 eight months later. You just can’t get that on social media. Even if you use a pinned post, you only get one. There’s no limit on how many top-ranked Google articles you can write.So, now we know what SEO is and why it’s important. But, how do we actually optimize our content? How do we make online content that appears on the first page of Google, Bing and other search engines?Related: Your SEO Checklist: 4 Steps to Optimizing Your Website1. Before you write your post, make sure your site is optimized.Search engines care about more than just the words on the page. They also take into account factors including the quality and consistency of your site speed and authority. There are tons of other factors that go into website SEO, but let’s break down these two.SpeedThere are a ton of reasons why you should want your website to run as fast as possible. Web users are notoriously impatient, and they’re liable to leave your website — maybe forever — if it takes just two seconds to load. At the same time, improving website speed can lead to an increase in conversions, downloads and views.Entrepreneur contributor Thomas Smale has two great strategies you can use to improve your website’s speed.The first is to optimize your images. He writes, “Research shows that, on average, more than half of a website’s memory load is taken up by images. One of the easiest ways to improve your page-load times is to optimize all your images for the web.”Odds are, you can probably make your image files much smaller without sacrificing quality. For example, there’s no need to upload a 5,000 pixel by 5,000 pixel image in a box that’s only a 500 pixel square. That image is 100 times bigger than it needs to be, and it could be the difference between a fast loading site and a slow one.You should also think about the density of your image. Most computer screens only show images at 72 pixels per inch (ppi), which means that anything clearer than that is wasted — like watching a high-definition Blu Ray movie on an old TV.So, even if your image is a 500 pixel square, you should check the ppi to make sure it is set at 72. Often, images are set at 300 ppi, which makes your image file four times larger than it needs to be without improving the quality.Smale’s second suggestion is to optimize for mobile. He writes, “Users now spend, on average, 69 percent of their media time on smartphones. Yet many commercial websites still perform poorly on mobile. This is something that businesses cannot afford.”There are all sorts of things you can do to improve your mobile performance. For example, if you are building your own website, you could implement Accelerated Mobile Pages to simplify your mobile pages and speed things up.If you are using one of the popular web-hosting sites for your website, you should check to see how that host performs on mobile. Entrepreneur contributor Segun Onibalusi found that Duda performed better on mobile than WordPress, Wix or Weebly, but you should do your own research to find which one works best for your content.Related: Marketing CampaignAuthorityAuthority comes from different sources — users, other websites and search engines — but really, it comes down to trust.How long has your website been relevant, and how long have you been creating content around a given topic? Just as important, do other experts use your website as a source? Are they linking to it or citing you?For example, Entrepreneur has released its online list of top 500 franchises each year since 2001. We break down each of the businesses — why they made the list, the company history and more.That sort of consistency and longevity has made our rankings noteworthy. If you go to McDonald’s franchise page, Entrepreneur’s rankings are mentioned in the first two sentences: “McDonald’s continues to be recognized as a premier franchising company. Entrepreneur ranked McDonald’s #1 on the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 for 2018.”We aren’t just an expert on franchises — we’re the expert. So, when we write an article about franchises, our authority helps push that content to the top of Google. If you searched for “Cheap Franchises,” you’d see something like this:Source: Google We’re not just the top search result — we own four of the top five places. We are the authority on cheap franchises.But, that doesn’t mean we’re the authority on everything. There are a lot of topics that we don’t cover at Entrepreneur. For example, if we wrote an article about the World Cup, we wouldn’t expect to outrank ESPN or FOX Sports. Those sites cover soccer every day.In the same way, you can carve out your own niche on Google. The more general you are, the more likely you are to encounter a website with more authority than yours who has written on the same topic. But, if you can create content specific for one audience, you can avoid the behemoths in your industry and find your way to the top spot on Google.For example, Entrepreneur Special Products Editor Andrea Huspeni runs a website called This Dog’s Life, which calls itself the “trusted resource for dog parents to discover the latest local happenings in their community.”Recently, This Dog’s Life published an article titled “8 of the Most Dog-Friendly Offices of 2018.” Now, if you were to google “Dog-Friendly Offices,” you wouldn’t find the story from This Dog’s Life. The top spot would be taken by an article by a much larger website, Fortune.Source: Google Note the date on that article — it was published in March of 2016. It’s a good example of how long a top Google result can last. For the past two years, people wanting to learn about dog-friendly offices have been going to Fortune to read that article.Fortune’s article also provided an opportunity for This Dog’s Life. Since it’s from 2016, it’s possible that those suggestions could be outdated. Dog lovers might instead choose to search for something more specific, like “Dog-Friendly Offices in 2018.” And guess who’s on the first page for that search, ahead of the Fortune article?Just this little bit of specificity allowed This Dog’s Life to rank on the first page on Google — even reaching No. 1 for a time.Related: 4 Reasons Why Quality SEO Will Cost You, and Why It’s Worth It2. While writing your post, you should have a keyword or search term in mind.Google isn’t going to magically rank your website in the top 10 just because you write a post. You have to help search engines out by predicting what people will search to find your story. For example, let’s say I write an article for Entrepreneur about what kids need to run their own lemonade stand.If I were writing the headline of an article about lemonade stands for a print newspaper, I might try to write a funny or punny title, such as (bear with me on these):How to Be Beyonce and “Lemonade”Lemonaid: Helpful Tips for Running Your Summer StandSugar, Water and Lemons: A Perfect RecipeAnd if someone read my article in a print newspaper, they might see a picture of a lemonade stand or read a little of the story and figure out what it’s about.But no one on the internet is searching for terms like “Lemonaid” or “Sugar, Water and Lemons.” They might search for “How to Be Beyonce,” but they’re not going to want a story about lemonade stands as an answer.If you are writing an article for the web, then, it’s important to be clear. Here are some better SEO headlines for an article on how to run a lemonade stand:How to Run a Lemonade StandTips on Running a Lemonade StandWhat Ingredients Do You Need to Run a Lemonade Stand? A Checklist.These titles are more straightforward, and they mirror the way a potential user would search for information on lemonade stands. That’s important.The key search term in each of my titles is “Run a Lemonade Stand,” because I want people to find my article when they search for information on running a lemonade stand. When picking your own keyword, you should try to think about how people would search for the information you’re offering.Related: What Exactly Is SEO?Once you pick your key search term, you have to use it in the post.Putting the keyword in the headline is important, but it isn’t the only thing you should do to optimize your story.You should also include your keyword throughout the story, including in your intro and in a “heading 2,” or H2, tag somewhere in the piece.One potential way to add keywords is through the use of related links — by adding related links with similar titles, you can add keywords without actually changing the content of your article. In my story on “How to Start a Business,” I added a link to a story about “How to Start a Business Online.” That story is more specific than mine, because it only relates to online businesses, but it still contains the keywords I used.Use internal links to other stories on related topics from your website. For example, I might add a link in my lemonade stand story to an article about kid entrepreneurs or how parents can make extra money for college.If you have the budget, online tools such as Searchmetrics or Brightedge can help you identify how often you should use your keyword in the article, as well as additional keywords that you should include in your article. If you don’t, that’s OK. Just try to use your keyword or search term as much as you can without going overboard.Related: 10 Search Engines You Don’t Know AboutYou should still write like you’re talking to people and not a machine.Search engines penalize short articles (think less than 300 words) that jam in keywords without saying anything. Google and others prefer longer articles.Depending on the subject matter, what “longer” actually means can vary. For an article on lemonade stands, 700 words might be longer than average. For an article on how to start a business, search engines might demand something closer to 4,000.This is another difference between writing for search engine optimization and writing for a newspaper. In a newspaper, every word is taking up physical space on the page. Every unnecessary word is literally a waste of space.Online, it’s worth taking the time to make sure you’re clear, even if it takes a few extra words.You should also write in an approachable way. Try not to get too in the weeds, even if you’re talking about something technical. If you write with easy-to-read prose, search engines will be more likely to rank your story well and, more importantly, your readers will appreciate it.Which leads us to the last stage of search engine optimization …Related: Meet The Real Search Engine Optimizer3. After writing your post, you have to share it.And you need to get other people to share it, too.It’s pretty simple: If people share your article, it means they think other people should see it. Isn’t that the whole point of a search engine — pointing people to the posts, websites and information they should see?In the same way that you might be more likely to buy a product or service after someone recommends it, Google and other search engines are more likely to commit to your page after others have shared it.You need to use social media to start that conversation, so others can recommend your post. To do that, you can use one of two strategies:Rely on your own social network.Rely on a partner’s social network.Ideally, you’d be able to do both of those at the same time. For example, Entrepreneur Associate Editor Lydia Belanger interviewed Alisha Marie in an article called, “What This YouTube Star With 7.3 Million Subscribers Is Doing to Deal With Burnout.”Belanger shared the story on her Twitter account with 4,500 followers, which is already a good start. But then, the article got more firepower behind it when it was shared by Entrepreneur’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts, which have about 3.4 million followers each. Plus, Marie put the article in an Instagram story, tapping into her 3.7 million followers.By tapping into all of those sources, Belanger’s story was shared by accounts with more than 10 million combined followers.To put that in perspective, Bill Gates’s Instagram account has about 1.7 million followers.Related: SEO 2018: 15 Rules for Dominating Online Search ResultsThere are many ways you can create partners who will share your content. You could do what Belanger did and interview someone with a big social following. You could agree to swap stories with other websites or blogs in your industry, where you share their stories and they share yours. You could create Facebook Groups with like-minded people who will want to read and share your work.But, it’s also important to grow your own social following. That way, you don’t have to rely on others’ participation. You can start the conversation that gets you recognized on Google.In a post from April of 2018, Entrepreneur Contributor Deep Patel offered seven ideas for growing your social following. They are:Develop a multichannel approach. You never know which social media channel will be in favor in a few years. If you have the resources to do so, it never hurts to establish a presence on multiple platforms.Invest in influencer marketing. These don’t necessarily have to be long-term partnerships, but influencers can help you connect with your target audience.Engage commenters as quickly as possible. Facebook and Instagram use “engagement” as a primary factor in their algorithms for determining what to show their users. If you can respond to your followers quickly, they’re more likely to engage with your content.Amplify reach through look-alike audiences. Consider using paid social media marketing once you’ve established a clear strategy.Measure strategy success through on-platform and on-site measurement. Analytics are your friend. Use the tools available to you from Facebook Insights, Twitter Analytics and more to figure out what’s working and what’s not.Create a clear and unique brand identity. We’ve already gone over how it’s important to carve out a niche for search engine optimization. The same holds true for your social brand. Social networks are crowded, and you don’t want to be a second-rate version of someone else.Find creative ways to delight people. According to Patel, the average person shares a positive customer service experience with nine other people. So, if you can create a positive, memorable experience, odds are you’ll develop loyal followers who will become your brand ambassadors.However, as in all things, the number one key is simpler. If you work at growing your social media platforms with deliberation, consistency and patience, you’ll do just fine.Related: 9 Key Questions to Ask an SEO Company Before Hiring It — or Firing ItRecap: To optimize your content for search engines, you must do three things.One of the best ways to earn traffic is to improve your site’s search engine optimization. Ranking in the first page of a search engine results page (SERP) can bring literally millions of people to your website. You can then use that traffic to sell ads, write sponsored posts or even create a thriving online store.To optimize your content, you need to first understand that SEO starts with the construction of your website. Work with a developer or research what Google and other search engines expect from your website, then do what you can to make sure they get it. Focus on making your website as fast as you can. Over time, you should try to build up your authority on topics that are essential to your website.Next, you need to write a post that targets a specific keyword or search term. Make sure you use that keyword in the headline, as well as throughout the article. You should use related links and internal links that reference your website and inform Google what the article is about. At the same time, make sure you are writing something that informs the reader and doesn’t just target Google’s algorithm.Last, you need to create an online conversation about your piece through social media. Use partnerships as well as your own platforms to create a buzz around your website that even Google can’t ignore.If you can do those three things, you can create top-ranked articles and put the power of Google in the palm of your hand.last_img read more

Registrar of Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Prof Dibu Ojerinde has called for the standardisation of post-university matriculation examinations in universities Ojerinde made the call in Minna on Thursday after inaugurating the JAMB Zonal office saying that his criticism against the exercise was because of the lack of standardisation of the tests by universities The registrar said standardisation would enable students to use the result of the screening to seek admission to any university in the country just like the JAMB result “There is nothing wrong with the screening of candidates by universities and other institutions if a standard instrument will be used by such institutions” the News Agency of Nigeria quoted the JAMB registrar as saying on the issue He blamed students and their parents as well as officials of tertiary institutions for the corruption in the admission process saying “that was what prompted the screening of candidates by authorities of tertiary institutions” Ojerinde said the Minna Zonal JAMB office was among the six slated for completion within the year According to him other centres scheduled for completion were that of Kwara

challenges in North Dakota have resulted in fewer rigs being added to the landscape The minerals department is focusing its attention on keeping industry on task in terms of capturing waste gas and keeping flaring to acceptable levels she said"So right now industry has a target of 85 percent capture and for the most part they are meeting it" she said unlike a few months ago when it missed its target for the first time in three yearsRitter said an increased capture target of 88 percent is a challenge to the oil and gas industry and an acknowledgment of the increasing hunger for natural gas"Now that we’re seeing record gas production it just showcases the need to continue to develop our pipeline infrastructure and have additional investment in pipeline gathering and natural gas processing" she saidThe second most pressing area for the department is dealing with federal regulations Department officials have been litigating against certain rule changes they say infringes on North Dakota’s rights Ritter said pointing to the Bureau of Land Management’s 2015 hydraulic fracturing rule States oppose the rule and environmental groups support it and Ritter expects a continued
