2. Republish Old Content Breathing life into old content is a great way to gain a boost in rankings — anything with a 2014 timestamp is essentially ancient today. All you need to do to resurrect dead content is update it. Include any recent developments that may render the content’s information worthless or outdated. Additionally, be sure to include “Last Updated on XX/XX/XXXX” next to the original publication date. 3. Link Internally Internal linking is a common practice in which a site links to other blog posts or articles on the website. Leveraging this practice will help to lower bounce rates and keep time on your site high, which can effectively boost pages in the SERPs. 4. Implement an SSL Certificate Security is a big deal at Google, which is why the company made HTTPS a ranking signal in 2014. Backlino studied more than a million Google search results and found, “… a reasonably strong correlation with first page Google rankings,” and the implementation of HTTPS.

The armed forces could pay a steep cost if these trends go unchecked, say military scholars who have studied the military and politics in recent years. In opinion polls about confidence in public institutions, the U.S. military consistently rates at the top. Last year, Gallup reported that 73 percent of Americans ranked the military highest out of 14 institutions. And that level of public support had not changed in a decade. It is the most trusted institution, but a great deal of that is because the military is seen as above the political fray and is interested in the mission without a political ideology getting in the way, said retired Army Lt. Col. Jason Dempsey, a researcher at the Center for a New American Security who has studied the political attitudes of the troops in recent elections. What happens when you open that can of worms and the military is perceived as captured? Its reputation will plummet.

And why … ??? Well any person who is deemed to have said and done so many wrong things and yet can be voted in as the President of the United States of American, the most powerful nation in the World, deserves to be known better and to be studied in a wider perspectiveWhat was your biggest failure and how did you learn from it? Venturing into a business that you know nothing about just because you see many others making profits is really foolish. Every business has its own peculiarity and one must really study and be focus in understanding it before declaring that I am rich and successful, therefore, I will know how to run any business. Any venture be it in business, relationship and the social, must always be given a thorough thought before embarking on it … Always remember that wealth alone does not make you a clever man. Blue or red ocean strategy? Or neither? Why? Many successful businesses are employing a multi-coloured strategy … ??? The success story of Apple, Google, Mercedes, Exxon and etc etc have been there long before some talk-shop guru coined Blue and Red.

One thing that keeps me puzzled, despite having studied finance and economics at the world’s best universities, the following question remains unanswered. Why is it that 5,000 units of our currency is worth one unit of your currency where we are the ones with the actual gold reserves? It’s quite evident that the aid is in fact not coming from the West to Africa but from Africa to the Western world. The following in an excerpt from a lecture given by Mallence Bart Williams in 2015 ( TEDxBerlin ). Mallence Bart-Williams was born in Cologne, Germany. She is a Sierra Leonean writer and filmmaker and a German fashion designer. She pursued her studies in economics and finance in Paris, Singapore, and Great Britain. She is the founder and creative director of the Freetown-based creative collective FOLORUNSHO , a ‘SHARITY’ (with no financial donations or aide) that she initiated with street kids in Sierra Leone.

Amal identifies with the Salafist tradition in Islam. And if we go by the definitions being floated around, she would be considered a “radical Muslim”: She prayed five times daily, fasted all 30 days of Ramadan, and wore the “jilbab,” a loose, full-body garment that covers everything but the face. Steadfast in her religiosity, she also studied the Quran regularly and attended local mosques in the area. She worked hard to live her life in accordance with the ethical teachings of Islam. This included spending part of her week tutoring Muslim girls in the neighborhood who homeschooled. Amal worried a great deal about their futures in France, since anti-veiling legislation had constrained their opportunities. She also quietly worried about the future of Islam, believing it is under siege both by governments and by the ungodly and destructive work of the Islamic State.

Three decades ago, a massive stellar explosion sent shockwaves not only through space but also through the astronomical community. SN 1987A was the closest observed supernova to Earth since the invention of the telescope and has become by far the best studied of all time, revolutionising our understanding of the explosive death of massive stars.

Ice levels were at the second lowest yearly minimum on record during last Septembers travel season, despite some areas holding more ice than normal, such as the Laptev Sea. For convoys equipped with icebreakers, its been a year of firsts for winter travel. The Russian government celebrates the thaw as the beginning of a new era. For the respected Arctic anthropologist and research lead, Nikolai Vakhtin, its an era that must be studied. His latest project is a partnership between Tyumen State University in western Siberia and the European University in St. Petersburg. Vakhtin works out of the latter, in the same port city where Russias nuclear icebreakers are built (and recent birthplace of Arktika, heralded for her ability to slice through ice 4m/13ft deep). Soon, the team of 10 researchers will commence ethnographies in seaport communities along the coast of the Arctic Ocean from Murmansk in the west to Kamchatka in the east.

A small study in 16 people with severe anorexia has found that implanting stimulation electrodes into the brains of patients could ease their anxiety and help them gain weight. Researchers found that in extreme cases of the eating disorder, the technique, known as deep brain stimulation (DBS), swiftly helped many of those studied reduce symptoms of either anxiety or depression, and improved their quality of life. A few months later, the improved psychological symptoms began to lead to changes in weight, the researchers said, with the average body mass index (BMI) of the group increasing to 17.3, "a rise of 3.5 points" over the course of the study. Anorexia is a serious eating disorder that affects about 0.5 percent of people worldwide, the majority of them teenage girls. Patients have persistent concerns about their weight, shape and size, and starve themselves to maintain a low weight.

Migratory birds from all 50 states nest there. Few people visit, but the coastal plain is part of a refuge that's the very definition of wilderness: no roads, no campgrounds, not even any established trails. Environmental groups are planning strategies to keep drill rigs out. "There are some places that are just too sacred to drill," said Alli Harvey, a Sierra Club campaigner in Anchorage. Legislation signed by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1960 created the Arctic National Wildlife Range." Congress in 1980 changed the name, expanded the refuge to 30,136 square miles and declared much of it wilderness. However, recognizing the potential for oil, Congress also declared that 2,300 square miles of Beaufort Sea coastal plain were to be studied for natural resources. Another act of Congress can open it to drilling. About the debate The Arctic refuge has since been one of Alaska's great development-versus-environment issues, causing a stalemate that has lasted more than 36 years.

S. government's claim of looking into the phenomenon in a serious, formal way over the last six decades , there is a looming fear for some that ufology will never amount to much — always left for the pseudoscientists to ponder. Bob Davis, a retired neuroscientist, believes people's fear of ridicule by others is major reason why ufology is so undermined. Davis is a member of the Dr. Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters, which explores the UFO phenomenon. The team had studied 3,057 individuals who have fought against the fear of ridicule and instead spoken up about their encounters with a physical craft associated with some form of non-human intelligence. Their research, according to Davis, has led to some very intriguing insight, one of which is that such UFO encounters make the witnesses... happy. One might assume fear or curiosity would be the two biggest words associated with such encounters, but Davis notes : What we've found is that about 85 percent of the people who are experiencing this phenomenon are being transformed in a very positive behavioral or psychospiritual way.

The similar spectral gradients observed for the pair 2004 VN112 2013 RF98 suggests a common physical origin, said Julia de León, the first author of a new paper , and who is an astrophysicist at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC). We are proposing the possibility that they were previously a binary asteroid which became unbound during an encounter with a more massive object. Sequence of images taken with the Gran Telescopio CANARIAS (GTC) to identify one of the ETNO´s studied in this article, 2013 RF98, where one can see how it moves during four consecutive nights. Below, right, visible spectra obtained with the GTC of the two objects 2004 VN112 and 2013 RF98. The red lines show the gradients of the spectra. Credit: Julia de León (IAC). To test their hypothesis, the team performed thousands of simulations to see how the poles of the orbits would separate as time went on.

Gotcha IMAGINE a small drone that could fly around sampling animals and people in an effort to see which pathogens are present in an area, and what host species harbour them. That would be invaluable to epidemiologists seeking to understand how diseases spread, and how to predict and pre-empt their outbreaks. At the moment, such a drone is beyond human technology. But this may not matter, because nature has already come up with one. It is called the mosquito. Mosquitoes (female mosquitoes, at any rate) draw blood from animals to feed on. While doing so, they also ingest any blood-born pathogens present in those animals. What a splendid idea, thought Ethan Jackson and Jonathan Carlson, of Microsoft Research in Seattle, to design a system that captures mosquitoes so that the pathogens they have ingested can be studied. Thus, as Dr Jackson explained to the AAAS meeting, was Project Premonition born.

For the past few months, I've been describing what is needed to license simple ideas for new products. Designers pride themselves on their execution. But the licensing model requires you to be willing to relinquish some control. There are enormous benefits — and self-employment is freeing. To briefly summarize, if after you've studied a market and done a prior art search; determined your product idea is indeed novel; made a list of potential licensees; filed a provisional patent application; and begun reaching out to said companies over LinkedIn or by calling their corporate office… one day soon, you'll get a response! Which may surprise you. Know that smaller, more aggressive companies will get back to you quickly. Predictably, large companies move more slowly. They may need to bring a larger group of people together before replying, which could take between five and 10 days.

A common roundworm widely studied for its developmental biology and neuroscience, also might be one of the most surprising examples of the eat-local movement. Princeton University researchers have found that the organisms have a sure-fire method of ensuring a steady supply of a bacteria they eat—they grow their own.
