Another BASE jumper was killed after jumping off from one of the peaks at the Zion National Park in Utah. This is the second BASE jumping fatality recorded in the park. Zion National Park is Utah’s most popular park, and is known for narrow canyons and sandstone cliffs. Many BASE jumpers visit the park even though BASE jumping is banned …
A Utah woman fell to her death Saturday while BASE jumping with her newlywed husband at Zion National Park. Amber Marie Bellows, 28, and 29-year-old Clayton Butler decided to take a leap off of a region located on Mount Kinesava, which dropped nearly 2,000 feet. The plateau itself is roughly 3,000 feet high surrounded by cliffs. Butler says that they …
Buying in bulk is great until you actually have to transport and store 50 gallons of peanut butter or whatever else is at stake. Uploading in bulk also has its share of problems, but Google Base has introduced a new bulk upload dashboard to make things simpler.
Some Things Only Spread Because Who is Behind Them
I recently created an Internet marketing mind map and published it on my tools subdomain with a link to it from tools.seobook.com, but nobody mentioned it. A few days later I blogged about it on SeoBook.com and dozens of webmasters linked to it. Same publisher, same content, drastically different results…because one channel has attention while the other does not.
Last week, Google announced its plans to set up shop in Kenya. Now Google.org is showing an interest in Kenya’s southern neighbor, Tanzania, and has made known its plans to participate in “Believe Begin Become – Tanzania’s National Business Plan Competition.”
Let’s be blunt: Getting your products listed in the shopping search engines is a tedious, cyclical, pain-in-the-butt process. But it’s also necessary if you want to get the most out of online retail. At the Search Engine Strategies Conference in New York, those in the know spill what they know about shopping search optimization.
I missed last week (My laptop started with the “laptop death rattle” – so it was a scramble to do data backups, find and migrate to a new machine). One of the worst parts of being a solo shop is being your own IT guy. Excuses aside – here’s twice the friday favorite goodness for this week.
Something new happened in mid-2006 – five out of the top ten websites listed by Alexa (based on traffic for the previous three months) were Asian. Four of those were Chinese.
EBay and Yahoo dropped an announcement bomb early this morning saying that the two Internet giants have agreed to combine their efforts on a number of projects. By 2007, expect an increase in eBay search results on Yahoo!, an increase of contextual text and graphical ads on eBay, PayPal to power Yahoo! Wallet, a co-branded eBay Toolbar, and click-to-call advertising using Yahoo! Messenger with Voice and Skype.
The Google Base blog announces that you can now advertise your Google Base items in Google AdWords, finally releasing the “Automat” system we saw in a patent filing last November.
Google wants to drag the clock builders and chocolate makers out of their Old Europe brick-and-mortar mindset into the gleaming silicon-driven online marketplace, preferably with a Google Base account at the foundation of those efforts; we suggest a partnership that could help make this happen.
Yin and yang, man. If one were to accept the task of indexing the world’s information, it would seem right and proper to index the good, the bad, the ugly and the pornographic-as long as it’s not illegal. As par for the Internet course, Google Base has become an online porn store in record time-or maybe a bad neighborhood directory.
One of the many benefits of object-oriented programming is that it allows for reuse of logic. For example, classes can be created that contain a base level of functionality.
One of your employees has just tried to print something and he/she gets a printer error. The error says, “Out of paper.” Well the employee knows that the printer is not out of paper and it does not have a paper jam. What to do?
Building up email address lists of potential and real customers is important in order to convert traffic into sales. People who are interested in the issue of a website can be informed regularily about special offers and news. A good email address list of buying customers is a good tool for the customer relationship management.
I just stumbled upon PixelPass – a method of adding an income stream to your blog where your readers pay a small monthly fee to subscribe to your content.
There are quite a few compound words that are sometimes found combined into one word, sometimes separated into multiple words and sometimes connected together with a hyphen. If you are searching for one of these words, is it important which format you use to search?
During the past week, I’ve had a trickle of comment spam on my blog. Nothing that I’m overly concerned with (not yet, anyway) …
We often think about security measures as ways of protecting resources by preventing access to them. The need for authentication arises because, in the real world, keeping people out of protected areas is only half the battle. Authentication is about letting certain people (or processes) in, while keeping everyone else out. In practice, this usually means some people are going to have to be given secrets (passwords) that will form part of the credentials they need to present in order to gain access to protected resources. But since, as the old saying goes, the best way to keep a secret is not to, the distribution and exchange of access-providing secrets inevitably raises the level of risk to a secure system. A major goal of authentication, from a security point of view, is minimizing that risk – especially when users are being authenticated remotely, over publicly-accessible networks. Authentication is the process of poking minimally risky holes in one’s security.
