5. Re-use your old content Once you’ve written a whopper post, dont let it stagnate at the bottom of your blogroll forever. Instead, re-use it as time goes on. By either re-promoting it or repurposing it entirely, you can gain more reads and keep the traction of your long-form content going. While there’s no hard-and-fast information for how “old” content has to be before you re-promote it, OkDork recommends waiting at least a week, and I tend to agree. Dont forget to re-promote periodically for best results. Conclusion Long-form content is king, and it shows no signs of slowing anytime soon. When you write long content, it appeals to your reader base and helps you rank more efficiently in Google. It also helps you position yourself as a leader in your industry and provide more value to your followers.

That feeling of being unwelcome as well as a slowdown in the Chinese economy is sapping investment interest in China and more companies are deprioritizing the world’s second largest economy as an investment destination. From 2012 until now, the percentage of companies that identify China as one of their top three global investment destinations has slipped from a peak of 78 percent to 56 percent, according to the survey. But clearly, given its potential, few have written China off entirely. The survey found that if Beijing were to removediscriminatory barriers” to foreign investment companies and investment restrictions, members of the business group say they would “significantly increase investment.” However, few are optimistic that will happen anytime soon, according to the survey. China has been talking about moving forward with reforms for years now, but many, Chinese and foreign critics alike, see those efforts as stalled.

I think we're on the road to recovery in that regard. With plenty of undecided DNC members, it's unlikely any of the seven candidates will drop out anytime soon, said Mississippi Democratic Party Chairman Bobby Moak, who is undecided. I think it's early and I don't think anybody's discouraged enough to get out yet. I don't think anybody's put together the requisite number of votes to say 'I'm in' either, Moak said. Asked why he thought no candidate had locked up a majority of the 447-voting DNC members, Moak said, I think if I was one of the guys who just got into the race, I would count, and if the votes weren't there, I wouldn't be wasting my time.

But Trump told the Washington Post he was almost done with a plan to replace Obamacare with “insurance for everybody,” while forcing drug companies to negotiate directly with the government on prices for Medicare and Medicaid. Trump's recent attack on the border adjustment tax was another sign of his unpredictability, the financial lobbyist said. That measure would tax imports and exempt exports in an effort to encourage companies to keep jobs and production in the United States. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal on Friday, Trump called the proposal “too complicated.” “Anytime I hear border adjustment, I don't love it,” Trump told the Journal. “Because usually it means we're going to get adjusted into a bad deal. That's what happens.” Chris Krueger, an analyst at the investment firm Cowen and Co., said Trump's comments to the newspaper about the border adjustment proposal were “breathtaking.

Tests of more than 150 homes around Flint have shown that a vast majority of residences are below federal limits on lead and copper and that bacteria levels are also dramatically lower than they were a year ago. But the group has yet to come to a consensus that the water is safe to drink and appears hesitant to do so anytime soon despite the recent test results. Everyone is erring on the side of caution, Edwards says. Some residents, however, are highly skeptical of those findings. Melissa Mays, a local activist and organizer of the group Water You Fighting For?, is pushing for more extensive testing for homes in Flint to check for bacteria like Legionella, which led to a local outbreak of Legionnaire's Disease that followed the water switch in April 2014 and killed 12 people. Mays says she still develops a rash from water in her home and questions the official findings about improving water quality.

I did not mean that I was going to be running for anything anytime soon. So, what I meant is that it's important for me to take some time to process this amazing experience that we've gone through; to make sure that my wife, with whom I will be celebrating a 25th anniversary this year, is willing to re-up and put up with me for a little bit longer. I want to do some writing. I want to be quiet a little bit and not hear myself talk so darn much. I want to spend precious time with my girls. So those are my priorities this year. But as I said before, I'm still a citizen. And I think it is important for Democrats or progressive who feel that they came out on the wrong side of this election to be able to distinguish between the normal back-and-forth, ebb-and-blow of policy. Now, are we going to raise taxes or are we going to lower taxes? Are we going to, you know, expand this program or eliminate this program? You know, how how concerned are we about air pollution or climate change? Those are all normal parts of the debate.

Home is where you'll find a list of all the channels you have installed on the Roku Streaming Stick, ordered by installation date. My Feed was a new feature introduced at the tail end of the Roku 3 that allows you to track films and TV shows. Say you want to know when a new episode of The Simpsons is available to watch. You'd search the show using the remote, add it to the My Feed section and then anytime it becomes available on Hulu or FOX's streaming apps, you'll be notified. Movie Store and TV Store are two of my least favorite functions on the Roku Streaming Stick. Selecting either of these will take you to the Fandango storefront where you can purchase films or shows at varying prices. If you already subscribe to any streaming service, these two options will likely go unused, however will permanently take up residence on your home screen from now until the end of time.

Hulu rescued The Mindy Project and made the streaming deal to help keep Nashville going. Anytime a show gets canceled, its producers are knocking on your door to get you to pick it up. Why were Mindy and Nashville good fits for Hulu, and what circumstances need to exist for you to consider rescuing a show that was canceled elsewhere? The first thing is that it helps to start the conversation if weve already licensed the prior seasons. And in both of those instances, well before there was any talk of the show moving from the network to Hulu, we had licensed the past seasons. I think it would be a hard for us to make a show that one of our competitors had licensed the past seasons. For us to make that an original, that would be awkward. But I think if you were to ask [Netflix and Amazon], theyd probably say the same thing. The second thing is it has to be performing well on Hulu relative to the linear ratings.

The Cast button You'll need it to do almost everything You can cast from PCs and Macs as well The Cast button is the rectangle with broadcasting bars (it looks like the Wi-Fi symbol) in the corner of most mobile apps. Anytime you want to take content from your phone or tablet and send it to the big screen, press the button and select your Chromecast from the dropdown list. When the Cast button is pressed, the Chromecast takes the location of the videos URL and plays it on your TV, leaving you mobile device free to browse the web, check emails and use data without affecting the on-screen contents performance. But thats not the only trick Googles taught its pint-sized streamer. Also interesting is fast play, a sort of prediction algorithm in the Chromecast app that determines what you might watch next based on your previous choices.

Anytime he mentioned black people, he would talk about poor people or inner city. He would think that all of us live in the inner city and that we're all poor.” “If you're not a straight white male, then I don't think he's looking out for you as an American,” she said. Survey said ... GenForward is a survey of adults age 18 to 30 by the Black Youth Project at the University of Chicago with the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The first-of-its-kind poll pays special attention to the voices of young adults of color, highlighting how race and ethnicity shape the opinions of a new generation. The poll found that 54 percent of young people overall say life for people of color will be worse with Trump as president. About two-thirds of young blacks, Asian-Americans and Latinos think things will get worse for people of color, and whites are also more likely to expect things to get worse than better for minorities, 46 percent to 21 percent.

Albert Einstein once said Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving. Its clear that media agencies are at a crossroads, so for those of us in the industry, as we begin 2017, its great time to reassess our role so we can continue to, as Einstein advised, move forward. Martin Cass Alex Fine Complicating matters further, there is a heightened state of distrust threatening the relationship between agency and client, and many are questioning the role that agencies play. So, what is the purpose of the media agency in a post-digital world? There seems to be three prevailing schools of thought: Nothing will change (aka Please, God, let nothing change) This feels like trying to stop the tide from coming in at the beach. And as enticing as it might feel, the reality is that the world has evolved and isnt going back anytime soon.

There are a few free apps out there that make this process easier, like Prosper Daily, which will notify you of any suspected fraudulent charges. and Credit Karma, which will give you weekly updates of your credit score along with a breakdown of what factors are affecting it. Discover also lets anyone (including non-customers) check their score for free . Bottom Line This past year has been fun for me. Really, really fun. I've taken incredible trips that would have otherwise been financially prohibitive, and I'm not stopping anytime soon. I've had to adapt, going from 0 credit cards to 7 in nine months, and I've had to do it quickly. But the most important lesson I've learned is that there are offers out there for everyone, whether you have a perfect credit score or none at all. Just because certain cards or flights may be out of reach until you get a little momentum going doesn't mean there isn't incredible value to be had.

I know, I know. Remember he was my first. I then happily watched him eat his sandwich. Anytime I got that kid to eat something I experienced a high akin to sex, or a full night of sleep, both which as a new mom I didn't have too much time for. Once lunch was over I put him down for his afternoon nap and started to do some housework before we had to go out for his 2:00 p.m. play date. About 10 minutes into watching a Law and Order rerun, I mean dusting the living room, I heard my baby cough. But it wasn't just any cough. It was more of the croupy kind that had scared the heck out of me a few months before. The one that had my husband and me spending the wee hours after midnight in a steamy bathroom with the shower running, just like the nurse from our insurance company's 24-hour hotline told us to do. Why would he croup during the day? Isn't that just at night? Then I started to panic, maybe he was choking on the peanut butter.

ZEALnyc , January 16, 2017 The popularity of independent films has increased dramatically over the past decade, and the trend doesn't seem to be stopping anytime soon. There are approximately 3,000 active film festivals throughout the world, and there have been close to 10,000 festivals that have occurred over the past fifteen years. While the majority of the film screenings tend to take place in either festival settings or in specialized venues in larger urban areas, the independent film is also finding its audience through dedicated cable channels (Independent Film Channel (IFC); Sundance Film Channel; AMC, among many others), media behemoths Netflix and Amazon.com, as well as "on-demand" features offered through most cable and satellite providers. New York City hosts a large number of festivals each year and has a number of theaters committed to presenting this genre of film regularly, so now add one more to the list: The Kew Gardens Festival of Cinema.
