• How to set up your own website
    by ridbay on June 29, 2017 at 6:23 pm

    The famous American inventor and publisher Benjamin Franklin once said that two things in life are certain: death and taxes. These days, he might add something else to that list: websites—because just about everybody seems to have one! Businesses promote themselves with websites, television soaps have spinoff sites devoted to their characters, newlyweds set up sites for their wedding photographs, and most kids have profiles (statements about themselves and what they like) on “social-networking sites” such as Facebook. If you feel like you’re getting left behind, maybe it’s time to set up a site yourself? How do you go about it? What is a website? The basic idea of the Web is that you can read information that anyone else has stored on a publicly accessible space called their website. If you’re familiar with using computers for wordprocessing, you’ll know that when you create a document (such as a letter or a CV/resumé), it exists on your computer as a file, which you store in a place called a folder (or directory). A website is simply a collection of interlinked documents, usually stored in the same directory on a publicly accessible computer known as a server. Apart from the main documents (text pages), a website generally also contains images or graphic files (photographs, typically stored as JPG files, and artworks, usually stored as GIF or PNG files). So the basic idea of creating a website involves writing all these text pages and assembling the various graphic files you need, then putting them all together in a folder where other people can access them. What do you need to host a website? Theoretically, you could turn your own computer into a server and allow anyone else on the planet to access it to browse your website. All you have to do...

  • How the Internet Works: An Explanation Even Non-Techies Can Understand
    by ridbay on June 29, 2017 at 4:52 pm

      As modern online marketers who are totally in tune with everything that happens on the world wide web, we should — undoubtedly — be able to teach others how all of this “internet” stuff works. The issue, of course, is that many of us can’t explain it … at least not accurately, or succinctly, or eloquently. And considering we rely on the internet so freakin’ much, I figured it was time we nail this one down. As it turns out, explaining how the internet works in a way that even the most internet-agnostic person can understand is easier said than done. As Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, once observed: “The internet is the first thing that humanity has built that humanity doesn’t understand.” Challenge accepted, Schmidtty. My new goal in life, starting with this article, is to help humanity understand the internet. Let’s get started, shall we? In the Beginning … There was Al Gore, chief architect supreme of the internet. Just kidding, that story is merely an internet myth (based on a clumsily stated/poorly interpreted quote). In reality, lots of folks contributed to the invention of the internet over a span of several decades. From Nikola Tesla describing a “World Wireless System” at the turn of the century, to researchers coming up with plans for searchable media databases in the ’30s and ’40s, there have been many stepping stones along the way to the modern internet. What really got the ball rolling, however, was the Cold War. Out of fear that the Soviets could destroy America’s telephone system (thereby rendering long-distance communication impossible), the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) began looking for alternatives. M.I.T. scientist J.C.R. Licklider came up with a solution in 1962: an “intergalactic computer network” that would allow for communication on a global scale. What Licklider described would...

  • Step By Step Guide on How To Get Payoneer Card In Nigeria in 2017
    by ridbay on May 13, 2017 at 12:47 pm

    Payoneer is an industry-leading global payout platform that simplifies the world of commerce by removing limitations that typically surrounds international commerce. As a payout company, Payoneer works just like Paypal. It started its journey under the membership of MSP (Member Service Provider) MasterCard. It gives you and I the opportunity to possess a free MasterCard (Debit Card) which is accepted worldwide for payments & transactions. Payoneer came into being in 2005 and has its headquarter in New York. Its reliability as a payment platform has made it popular around the world as it is used in almost 200 countries. In this guide, I will explain how you can obtain this card in Nigeria in order to receive online payment. I will put this down in a step by step process so that you can quickly take action. WHY YOU NEED PAYONEER MASTER CARD As a Nigerian, you must be well aware of the restriction PayPal has placed on Nigeria. This has seriously handicapped Nigerians who are willing to carry out online transactions with other countries. For example, you may have a product to sell but because you lack PayPal it becomes difficult for you to receive payment. Or perhaps you need to get the latest WordPress theme, however, the inability to have a pay pal account makes it difficult to make online purchases. These are some of the problems that Nigerian face and a major reason why you need to obtain the card. You need the card because it allows Nigerians to make purchases online as well as to receive payment from other countries. The best part of it is that you can easily register for one and make money in the process. THE STEP BY STEP PROCESS OF OBTAINING YOUR PAYONEER CARD Step#1.

  • 21 Ways to Market Your Business Online
    by ridbay on May 11, 2017 at 1:06 pm

    There are billions of customers out there, and nearly as many ways to get them interested. Our nascent fascination with search stems back to the internet’s earliest days when algorithms didn’t reign supreme. Back then, it was far simpler to be found on the web. It didn’t require all of the technical know-how, breadth and awareness of hundreds of ranking factors in order to be discovered relevantly in an online search. No, back then it was far simpler. However, today, with the evolution of Google’s core search algorithms, and in the wake of major adjustments that have gone by names like Panda, Penguin and Hummingbird, being found on the web has become likened to obtaining a doctoral degree in physics or mathematics. As entrepreneurs, we all know that the best way to market any business online is to be found organically through a search at the top of Google’s search engine results pages (SERPs). It’s free and offers near-limitless traffic to those who can master this highly-convoluted field of online search. But doing that has also become a monumental undertaking. On the other end of the spectrum, many of us are online-searching sleuths. We’re professionals, able to gracefully surf the world’s annals of information effortlessly and with ease. We can tap into the vast knowledge available at a moment’s notice from powerful, blazing-fast pocket computers, on cue and at any time. Yes, we most certainly know how to conduct a search. However, as a business owner or professional, you know quite well that this isn’t the case for being found. Appearing relevantly for highly-competitive keywords has become an ever-increasingly difficult task. But how else are we supposed to market our businesses online if we can’t appear competitively on Google’s SERPs? And how is that some people seem to dominate Google’s searches while others seem to...

  • How to Promote Your Small Business Online

    How do you promote a small business online these days? As a small business owner what steps should you take to ensure that you are not missing out any opportunities? How can you utilize the internet to find more customers and make more sales? These are some of the questions I will try to answer in this post by explaining 7 methods for promoting a business online that are proven to work. #1 You need to have a business website I know that this sounds weird and while this is obvious for many people, still more than 70% of the businesses in Nigeria do not have a website or if they have, it is outdated. So your first step is to get your business online. How you will do it depends on your budget and the type of website you want to create but the general principles you should follow are: Get your own domain name – register a .com or .net domain name for your company Host your website on a reliable hosting provider – don’t always go for the cheapest solution but choose a hosting provider that is reliable and trustworthy. Don’t forget that your website represents your business image. Make sure that your website loads as fast as possible – The hosting provider has to play a very important role about this but also the company that will develop your website. Fast websites have many benefits to offer to businesses and this should not be forgotten. Mobile friendly – As we will see below, more and more people use their mobiles to search the web so having a mobile friendly website is a must. Provide information about your business, products or services – Last but not least, do not forget the primary mission of your website i.e. to... Continue Reading […]

Hence, I set up, run and track Instagram campaigns in the same way as for Facebook adverts. So, if you're already using Facebook ads,  just go ahead and create your ad, link your Facebook page to your Instagram account and when you […]

    by Jon Russell on August 17, 2017 at 5:34 am

     Regular run-ins with government regulators and battles with well-funded local rivals have made Asia challenging terrain for Uber. The challenge is such that it’s fitting that the U.S. ride-sharing giant has hired a man who once scaled the summit of Mount Everest to lead its business in the region. Brooks Entwistle, a former Chairman of Goldman Sachs Southeast Asia, was announced today… Read Mor […]

    by Jon Russell on August 17, 2017 at 3:45 am

     Apple CEO Tim Cook has criticized U.S. President Trump’s reaction to the violent events that took place over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, which left one woman dead. “I disagree with the president and others who believe that there is a moral equivalence between white supremacists and Nazis, and those who oppose them by standing up for human rights.

  • Startup initiatives from Down Under may offer inspiration to the failing US Postal Service
    by Jonathan Shieber on August 17, 2017 at 3:30 am

     Earlier this week, the US Postal Service reported another dismal quarter of financial results. It’s the latest in a string of bad news for a national service that has been in slow decline since private carriers began emerging to challenge its dominance in the marketplace, and email rendered the written letter all but obsolete.

     This is probably the last bit of news Samsung wanted to pop up in headlines in the weeks leading up to the Note 8 launch. Though, to be fair, this latest battery recall isn’t on Samsung. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall for refurbished Galaxy Note 4 batteries. However, the fault appears to fall at the feet of potentially counterfeited batteries supplied by FedEx. Read Mor […]

     Seattle seems like an unlikely venue for a duel between bike-sharing companies: it’s rainy, hilly, its residents can’t drive and another bike-share program recently went belly-up publicly and ignominiously. But Ofo, one of several Chinese giants in the space, is the third company to launch in the city in a month. It’s the company’s first foray in the States. Read Mor […]

  • Supermarket brings in 'quiet hour' designed to help autistic people
    by Johnny Lieu on August 17, 2017 at 8:44 am

    Supermarkets are often bustling places, meaning it can be overwhelming for people on the autism spectrum and those who care for them. To make the experience easier, Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) and supermarket chain Coles have partnered together on a pilot program which will see stores go quiet for an hour as part of a sensory-friendly experience. SEE ALSO: Netflix's 'Atypical' attempts to tackle what dating could be like for an autistic teen During the that time, the store's radio will be turned down to its lowest level, and the lights will be dimmed by 50 per cent.  Register and scanner volumes will be turned down to its lowest level, roll cages will be off the shop floor, trolley collections will stop, and PA announcements will be avoided — bar emergencies.

  • Chinese state media just released a terribly racist video mocking Indians
    by Yvette Tan on August 17, 2017 at 7:59 am

    A video released by Chinese state media is turning heads for all the wrong reasons. The Xinhua News Agency, China's official press agency, on Wednesday released a video accusing India of committing several "sins."  The video features a man dressed in a turban and a fake beard, speaking in a supposed "Indian" accent.  SEE ALSO: FaceApp removes racist selfie filters The video, titled "7 Sins of India", comes amid months of increasing tensions between China and India over a border dispute, which has become known as the Doklam standoff. The three-minute long video sees a Chinese presenter explaining the Doklam standoff via a script chiding India, while the Indian "guest star" enacts a mock dialogue to a canned laugh soundtrack.

  • It's a race against time to ensure people vote on marriage equality in Australia
    by Johnny Lieu on August 17, 2017 at 4:06 am

    In Australia, the deadline to enrol to vote for marriage equality is approaching fast.   Australians will be sent a voluntary postal survey on the matter in September, after the country's government failed to get its marriage equality plebiscite (a public vote on an issue which doesn't affect the country's constitution) through parliament twice. SEE ALSO: Being afraid to come out in a country that just elected a lesbian prime minister The announcement of a postal vote has culminated in a campaign called Equality Weekender, a series of events, parties and barbecues between Aug. 17 to 20 around Sydney — and hopefully nationally — encouraging people to enrol or ensure they're eligible to vote.

  • Charlottesville comes together for a candlelight vigil
    by Keith Wagstaff on August 17, 2017 at 3:07 am

    There's nothing that can undo the harm done by the white supremacist rally that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend.  Three people are dead. Others have to live with the fear of violent racism. But during a vigil Wednesday night in Charlottesville, people gathered in the name of peace.  SEE ALSO: Obama's Charlottesville response just became most-liked tweet in history Here, on the University of Virginia campus, the crowd sings "This Little Light Of Mine."  More than 1,000 people took to the streets, according to local NBC News reporter Victoria Wresilo.

  • 'Game of Thrones' is proving itself to be leak-proof
    by Jess Joho on August 17, 2017 at 1:42 am

    What is dead may never die — and what is Game of Thrones will never be defeated by leaks. It's been a rough ride for HBO recently. Like a White House administration that cannot stop leaking out of its "whatever," the prestige TV mogul can't seem to seal its faulty pipes. Yet somehow its most popular show stared those instruments of potentially devastating audience dropout and taunted: "What do we say to the god of death? Not. Today." Two weeks ago, hackers spoiled "The Spoils of War" by releasing one of Season 7's most epic episodes a full two days before its official release. We urged true fans to wait until Sunday night to watch the dragonfire unleash — for their own good. Read more...More about Hbo, Game Of Thrones, Hbo Leak, Entertainment, and Game Of Thrones […]

  • 7 best burns from Martin Shkreli's jury selection process
    by Patrick Kulp on August 17, 2017 at 12:49 am

    When you're as publicly reviled as Martin Shkreli is, finding a dozen of your peers who aren't predisposed to hate your guts can be a tall order. The "pharma bro," who first rose to infamy when he hiked the price of a life-saving AIDS drug by 5,000 percent, was convicted of securities fraud earlier this month—a charge completely unrelated to his more notorious exploits. SEE ALSO: Martin Shkreli can't get a fair jury because everyone thinks he's an evil man snake That didn't stop hundreds of would-be jurors from taking the opportunity to skirt jury duty by ripping on Shkreli before the trial even started. The jury selection process quickly devolved into a Comedy Central-style roast. Read more...More about Martin Shkreli, Business, and Other […]

  • All the people (and things) Trump actually thinks are racist
    by Nicole Gallucci on August 16, 2017 at 11:03 pm

    President Donald Trump has had an especially hard time convincing Americans he's not racist this week. What with blaming "many sides" and the "alt-left" after this weekend's deadly violence in Charlottesville — despite white supremacists and neo-Nazis being at the heart of the protests against the removal of a Confederate statue — he's making it pretty hard to believe otherwise.  SEE ALSO: Donald Trump’s teleprompter is back from vacation to denounce racism Trump received a great deal of backlash for refusing to directly condemn white supremacists, the KKK, and neo-Nazis until Monday, and that statement was undermined by his off-the-rails press conference a day later that once again blamed "both sides," emboldening the KKK and white supremacists.  Read more...More about Twitter, Conversations, Politics, Racism, and Donald Trum […]

  • PewDiePie after Charlottesville: 'Nazi memes are not even that funny anymore'
    by Kellen Beck on August 16, 2017 at 10:00 pm

    No shit.  YouTube's most prominent personality, PewDiePie (a.k.a. Felix Kjellberg), has finally realized what we've all already known: Nazi jokes are tasteless at best, hateful at worst. And after the events of this past weekend, we have a hard time understanding how anyone could find them funny. In a video released today, PewDiePie quickly references the recent events around the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, getting to his main point: He's now reconsidering making Nazi references in his YouTube videos that are watched by millions of people.  This past weekend, white supremacists and neo-Nazis carrying torches in Charlottesville chanted anti-Semitic and Nazi-era slurs in protest of the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue. The group clashed violently with counter protesters and an Ohio man protesting the statue's removal drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one and injuring more than a dozen others.

    Hey all, sorry for the short notice but thanks for meeting back up. I wanted to let everyone know that after some feedback we are scrapping the Wight kidnapping plan we discussed the other day. That plan, in which we decided to send an elite team of our most important leaders on a suicidal mission to capture one dead guy and bring him to King's Landing to show Cersei, is officially over.  It was stupid, almost unbelievably so, and I think we can all see that now. I am deeply, deeply humbled by the entire ordeal. The good news is: I, Jon Snow, the King in the North, have thought of several other plans on my return journey and I am so happy to begin work on truly any of them.

  • Giant tortoise escapes the zoo, but doesn't make it very far
    by Samantha Scelzo on August 16, 2017 at 9:41 pm

    A giant tortoise broke out of the zoo and was living life on the run, but it didn’t quite move fast enough … because, well, it’s a tortoise.   According to The Japan Times, a 35-year-old female tortoise named Abuh was found just 140 meters (about 450 feet) away from Shibukawa Animal Park in Okayama after going missing two weeks ago.  SEE ALSO: This tortoise called Herman is BFFs with a bread version of himself She's allowed to walk freely around the zoo during daytime hours, and figured she'd make her great escape beyond the walls of the park.

Other personal details about the reportedly young man are vanishingly scarce, according to The New York Times, but its his professional credentials that may illuminate key parts of how the Russian government runs its hacking operations.  SEE ALSO: Pussy Riot wants to totally immerse you in Russian prison life Profexer may not have been a Russian government operative himself, but he is the alleged author of the malware that helped Russian operatives hack the Democratic National Committee (and steal DNC emails) in an attempt to sway the 2016 United States presidential election in favor of President Donald Trump.  Read more...More about Newsy, Tech, and Cybersecurity […]

  • After Charlottesville, tech companies are forced to take action against hate speech
    by Kerry Flynn on August 16, 2017 at 9:35 pm

    Silicon Valley spent years preaching a hands-off approach to even the most extreme speech in the interest of connecting the entire world.  After Charlottesville, that's changing quickly.  Facebook, Google, Spotify, Squarespace, and a variety of other tech companies are taking action to curb the use of their platforms and services by organizations associated with far-right organizations. The effort, though apparently uncoordinated, is among the most aggressive campaigns yet to push a particular group off the internet's mainstream spaces. The moves come in the immediate aftermath of a weekend of violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, where the "Unite The Right" rally, organized in part on Facebook, resulted in three deaths and dozens of injuries. The Facebook Event page for the rally, which drew a mix of white nationalists, self-identified Nazi, and the alt-right, was live for more than a month before Facebook removed it, Business Insider reported. It was only shut down one day prior to the rally.  Read more...More about Facebook, Twitter, Google, Airbnb, and Silicon Valley […]

  • Why Apple's not going to sell an OLED TV
    by Raymond Wong on August 16, 2017 at 9:17 pm

    It's no secret Apple really, really wants to reinvent the TV. On his deathbed, Steve Jobs expressed great interest in fixing the crummy TV watching experience, telling his biographer Walter Isaacson that he had "finally cracked it." Jobs said he wanted to create an "integrated television set that is completely easy to use" and "would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud." In 2014, leakers and analysts repeatedly said Apple would release its own TV set, which many speculated could have been powered by Siri. No such Apple-branded TV was ever released and many believe Apple shelved it. Read more...More about Tech, Tv, Apple, Tv Set, and Oled Tv […]
