That’s true. But I’m far more skilled at SEO. Therefore, most people associate my name with SEO more than website development, which makes them far more likely to give me an endorsement for SEO. That’s why I made the conscious decision to use SEO as the first skill on my profile. Second, people tend to get overwhelmed if there is a ridiculous number of choices. But if you place your primary skills at the top, people can zone in on those skills, which increases the likelihood of them giving you an endorsement. Endorse others I’m a firm believer in the law of reciprocity. It’s a psychological principle I’ve discussed in several blog posts mainly in the context of conversion optimization. Long story short, it simply means that people are inclined to do something nice for you if you do something nice for them. But reciprocity can be applied to LinkedIn endorsements as well.

The constitution requires congress to approve a president's declaration of martial law, and limits military rule for 60 days. If a president wants to extend it, he or she must again get congressional endorsement. The Supreme Court can also rule on martial law's legality. "The Supreme Court will say they will examine into the factual (basis). Why I don't know. They are not soldiers. They do not know what is happening on the ground," Duterte said Saturday on Jolo, a southern island that is under martial law. A day after declaring martial law, Duterte described the nine years of military rule under Marcos as "very good", and said his would be similar. Duterte also told soldiers on Friday they would be allowed to conduct searches and arrests without warrants. "During martial law, your commanders, you, you can arrest any person, search any house. There is no more warrant needed," Duterte told troops on Friday.

In his endorsement of Rouhani, Khatami called on Iranian voters to support the president’s programme as a journey that is only half-complete. Judging by Rouhani’s resounding electoral victory, it seems that Iranians are willing to give him the chance to attempt to finish what he started. Project Syndicate

Leaders of seven wealthy democracies have reached a deal to give the Trump administration more time to tell them whether the United States plans to stay in the Paris climate agreement. A person familiar with the negotiations at the Group of Seven summit said that six members of the G-7 would stick with their endorsement of the Paris deal, and await a decision from the U.S. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the matter before the formal announcement. The G-7 members were still wrestling over a statement on trade and whether it would condemn protectionism, as previous group statements have. President Donald Trump has pushed back against earlier group statements opposing protectionism and has argued trade must be balanced and fair as well as free.

“We should have a society that measures progress not just by economic metrics like GDP, but by how many of us have a role we find meaningful,” Zuckerberg told the Harvard graduates and their guests. “We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure everyone has a cushion to try new ideas.” The Time Is Now This idea that basic income supports more innovation as well as human rights is perhaps what has made it such a popular idea among Silicon Valley tech minds. In fact, this public endorsement from Zuckerberg is not all that cutting edge — he is one of the later proponents of UBI by Silicon Valley standards, joining the likes of Tesla's Elon Musk , eBay's Pierre Omidyar , and Y Combinator's Sam Altman. Bill Gates agrees that UBI is a good idea, and that we'll be ready for it soon. Click to View Full Infographic UBI isn't just a Silicon Valley thing.

Or at least they didnt think they editorialized. And that is where Ailes came in. In essence, he convinced his public that simple reporting was a form of editorializing. He suggested that the media’s so-called “facts” about the changing world were an endorsement of that world, and he claimed to be exposing media bias in order to correct it. In a way, he took seriously Stephen Colbert’s joke, “It is a well-known fact that reality has a liberal bias.” But it could only happen because cable television, unlike broadcast television, could survive on a relatively small demographic niche like angry old white men. In Fox News, they found an outlet for their rage. You could say that Fox News gave voice to those who felt voiceless, though it might be more accurate to say that he gave voice to those who were so filled with enmity that they seemed on the borderline of sanity.

Just heading out of Brussels on way to the G7. Some of the same cast of leaders are heading there from NATO too. Hard to imagine any will truly have a spring in their step. President Trump didn't deliver the endorsement of Article 5 of the NATO founding treaty which some hoped he would. He gave the leaders a public dressing down for not paying their way in NATO and even suggested that continuing terrorism should be on their consciences if they don't cough up. He suggested they were liable for arrears as well. All 27 had to stand and listen to the lecture, rich countries, he said, who wouldn't pay their way. The Prime Minister of Luxembourg said something behind his hand to the leaders of France and Belgium. You can't lip read when a hand is in the way but I would wager quite a bit is wasn't a supportive remark. Other leaders kept a stony face though that early them no grace from the US President who shoved NATO's newest member, Montenegro's Prime Minister, to one side to assert his own status at the front of the pack beside the NATO Secretary General.

The reporter’s questions, the newspaper wrote, “surely did not justify the reaction” from Gianforte. And The Missoulian, in its own course-reversal on Gianforte, wrote that the GOP candidate had not just lost the newspaper’s endorsement but also “should lose the confidence of all Montanans.” “We will leave it to the legal system to determine his guilt or innocence,” the editorial board wrote. “But there is no doubt that Gianforte committed an act of terrible judgment that, if it doesnt land him in jail, also shouldnt land him in the U.S. House of Representatives.”

When Jaybird released the Jaybird X2 wireless headphones, they quickly became a favorite for athletes and casual listeners alike. Their reputation grew thanks to rugged construction, impressive sound quality and, above all else a respectable price that just kept dropping. The appropriately named X3s carry the Jaybird torch onwards, improving on almost every feature of their predecessor and managing to hit the market at a lower cost while doing so ($129, 109, AU$199). As with the X2s, the X3s are targeted at the sportier sorts, with endorsement from athletes Lauren Fleshman and Brandon Johnson as well as a number of features thatll appeal to more active users. But many of those same features also make the headphones just as convenient for the casual listener without pushing the price up too much. Design The headphones come with a multitude of fitting options, with three different sizes of fins, Comply foam tips and silicone tips, as well as a shirt clip and two cable-shortening clips.

“I didnt engage in a ringing endorsement of President Bush’s budgets either,” McConnell said Tuesday. Of the reports on Trump’s intelligence community interventions, the Kentucky Republican merely stated the Senate and special counsel are investigating Russian influence on the election and he’s “confident that both of them will handle it well.” The two leaders arent totally turning a blind eye to the public pressures on Congress to appear as a check on the White House. Both are encouraging their chambersinvestigative committees to probe allegations of obstruction of justice and dig into any Russia-Trump campaign coordination to tilt the election in the brash real estate billionaire’s favor. In a way, those committee investigations — as well as the appointment of a special counsel at the Justice Department— have given Ryan and McConnell cover to sidestep questions by claiming they’re awaiting the findings of those probes.

Trump said on Twitter after the meeting he is “more determined than ever to pursue PEACE in our world.” Trump to be tough on allies Aboard Air Force One, on the flight from Italy to Belgium, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Trump would be “very tough” on NATO allies Thursday and tell them “you need to make sure you’re doing your share for your security as well.” Trump wants to “persuade NATO members to step up and fully meet their obligations under burden sharing the 2 percent of GDP is a target they all agreed to,” Tillerson told reporters. The defense alliance is expected to give the U.S. president at least one big thing he wants: a commitment to the coalition to fight Islamic State. “We do think that would be a really important step for them to take,” Tillerson said. Article 5 endorsement Trump is likely to allay NATO members’ concerns about his administration’s commitment to the pact’s mutual assistance pledge, something that has been in doubt.
