John Lennon – The Misunderstood Beatle

While watching Monday night football on a quiet afternoon on December 8, 1980, I was hungover when I heard Howard Cosell interrupt the game with a breaking news story. John Lennon was assassinated in New York City? Could that be true? That was true. Later, he was declared dead. I was shocked. Then my brother, Mark, called me on the phone with the news. We were both fans of John Lennon.

The Beatles, the fabulous four of the 1960s, received character descriptions or nicknames adopted by their fans. John was the smart one, Paul the cute one, George the mysterious one, and Ringo the funny one.

I always felt that John Lennon’s character description or nickname should have been dubbed the “Misunderstood Beatle”, because he always seemed to stir up controversy about his beliefs. He was unable to make his comments clear, and the media was unhelpful.

Take, for example, the comment he made on March 4, 1966, when he said, “The Beatles are more popular than Jesus.” What he meant was that more people would go to see the Beatles than to church on Sunday. Which may have been true. He generalized a bit by blaming the United States, when he was referring to England.

Lennon was interviewed for the London Evening Standard by Maureen Cleave, who was a friend, and made an offhand comment about religion. Lennon said, “Christianity will go. It will fade and shrink. We are more popular than Jesus now; I don’t know who will go first, rock and roll or Christianity. Jesus was fine, but his disciples were very ordinary.” It’s them twisting that messes it up for me.”

On August 11, 1966, The Beatles held a press conference in Chicago, in order to address the growing furor.

Lennon: I guess if I had said that TV was more popular than Jesus, I would have gotten away with it, but I happened to be talking to a journalist friend (Maureen Cleave), and I used the word “Beatles” as something remote. , not like what I think, like the Beatles, like those other Beatles, like other people see us. I just said that they are having more influence on children and things than anything else, including Jesus. But I said it that way, which is the wrong way.”

Put off: Some teenagers have repeated their statements: “I like the Beatles better than Jesus Christ.” What do you think about that?

Lennon: Well, I originally pointed out that fact in reference to England. that we mean more to children than Jesus, or religion at the time. He wasn’t hitting him or putting him down. I was just stating that as a fact, and it is truer for England than it is here. I am not saying that we are better or greater, or comparing ourselves to Jesus Christ as a person or God as a thing, or whatever. I just said what I said and it was wrong. Or it was taken badly. And now it’s all this.

Put off: But are you ready to apologize?

Lennon: I wasn’t saying whatever they’re saying I was saying. I’m sorry, I really meant it. I never wanted it to be a lousy anti-religious thing. I apologize if that will make you happy. I still don’t really know what I’ve done. I tried to tell you what I did, but if you want me to apologize, if it will make you happy, then that’s fine, I’m sorry.

John Lennon returned to the subject later that year, when he told Look magazine that, “I think Jesus was right, Buddha was right, and all those people like that are right. They all say the same thing, and I believe what Jesus said.” he really said the basic things he laid out about love and kindness and not what people say he said if Jesus is more popular it means more control I don’t want that before they would all follow us even if it’s just to dance and sing for the rest of their lives.

Although there was little reaction to his statement in England, Christians elsewhere embarked on a massive campaign to destroy Beatles albums and other paraphernalia. The Archbishop of Boston admitted that he was probably right, but many still refused to forgive him.

I can relate to his controversial statement, because I have made similar statements, like when I walked past a gambling casino on a Sunday and said, “Look at all those cars, try to pack them into a church.” parking lot.” Of course, what I meant was that gambling is more popular than Jesus. I hope that’s not the truth, here in America. Am I in trouble for saying that?

All this did not bother Lennon, he continued to use religious comments in his songs, an era Godreleased in 1971. The lyrics are as follows:

God (words and music by John Lennon)

God is a concept

by which we measure

our bread

i will say it again

God is a concept

by which we measure

our pain

I don’t believe in magic

I don’t believe in i-ching

I don’t believe in the bible

I don’t believe in tarot

I don’t believe in hitler

I don’t believe in Jesus

I don’t believe in Kennedy

I don’t believe in buddha

I don’t believe in mantras

I don’t believe in gita

I don’t believe in yoga

I don’t believe in kings

i don’t believe in elvis

i don’t believe in zimmerman

I don’t believe in the beatles

I only belive in me

Yoko and I

And that is the reality

the dream is over

What can I say?

the dream is over

Yesterday

I was a weaver of dreams

But now I’m reborn

I was the walrus

But now I’m John

And so dear friends

you just have to carry on

the dream is over

THE END

Once again, Lennon was misunderstood. Many Christians discouraged him. I always understood Lennon’s style. I felt that he was approaching to question things that we did not dare to ask. He was a buffer between reality and fantasy. Some considered it threatening. I considered it harmless. Although he said “I don’t believe in Jesus”. And he said, “I don’t believe the Bible.” Maybe he should have left them out of the song, at least to avoid controversy and save his career, but Lennon was Lennon and he didn’t care. He was saying that he has the freedom to say what he wants to say or sing what he wants to sing. I’m sure he hurt his career. Paul McCartney’s career only flourished. No intention of leaving out George and Ringo. His careers remained stable.

I always thought a more suitable song for John Lennon would have been…don’t let them misunderstand me, written and performed by fellow musician and friend, Eric Burdon. He also wrote a book with the same title.

In 1973, Lennon wrote and sang the song, conceived, a very critical but popular song. He questioned the existence of heaven and hell and also non-religion. This also angered the Christians. His message was clear to me. He was simply stating that if there were none of these things that he is imagining, the world would live in peace, as one. Why should you fight? There would be no wars. Many wars have to do with religion. The song is all about imagination. He is not a terrorist who wants to blow up the world. The letter is as follows:

conceived

(words and music by John Lennon)

Imagine there is no heaven

It’s easy if you try

no hell below us

Above us only the sky

imagine all the people

living for today

Imagine there are no countries

it is not hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And without religion too

imagine all the people

living life in peace

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope that one day you will join us

And the world will be as one

Imagine our possessions

i wonder if you can

No need for greed or hunger

A fraternity of men

imagine all the people

sharing all over the world

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope that one day you will join us

And the world will live as one

THE END

Lennon was always the open one. Some say that he was a hypocrite when he preached about love and peace, not war. In 1969, he demonstrated his beliefs in the song he wrote about him, Give peace a chanceafter his departure from The Beatles, during his solo career.

He defended many rights and causes. He was an anti-war activist. His beliefs were misunderstood and he was often taken as a socialist or a communist. President Nixon wanted him deported. Lennon stood up and fought for his right to stay where he loved to be: in New York City, USA. Sadly, it was also the place where he was murdered by a disturbed fan.

During his solo career, Lennon wrote and sang songs of rebellion with his political views. He socialized with anti-war leaders like Jerry Rubin, Abbie Hoffman and others. Lennon and his friends organized a concert in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in December 1971, called the “Free John Sinclair” concert. Sinclair was a local peace activist serving ten years in state prison for selling two joints of marijuana to an undercover police officer. Lennon appeared on stage along with Phil Ochs, Stevie Wonder and other musicians, as well as anti-war radical Jerry Rubin and Bobby Seale of the Black Panthers. 20,000 attended; two days after the concert, the state of Michigan released John Sinclair from prison. During this time, a song written and sung by Lennon was released, titled John Sinclair.

In 1972, Lennon released a song against sexism, titled, The woman is the black of the world, which implies that just as black people were discriminated against in some countries, so were women throughout the world. The letter is as follows:

The woman is the black of the world

(words and music by John Lennon)

The woman is the black of the world

Yes, it is… think about it.

The woman is the black of the world

Think about it… do something about it.

We make her paint her face and dance

If she’s not going to be a slave, we say she doesn’t love us

If she’s real, we say she’s trying to be a man

As we put her down, we pretend that she is above us.

The woman is the black of the world… yes she is

If you don’t believe me, look who you’re with

The woman is the slave of the slaves

Oh yeah…better yell about it.

We make her give birth and raise our children.

And then we left her flat for being a fat old chicken

We tell him that home is the only place he should be

Then we complain that she is too unworldly to be our friend.

The woman is the black of the world… yes she is

If you don’t believe me, look who you’re with

The woman is the slave of the slaves.

Yeah…okay…hit him!

We insult her every day on TV.

And I wonder why he has no guts or confidence

When he’s young we kill his will to be free

While we tell her not to be so smart, we belittle her for being so dumb.

The woman is the black of the world

Yes, it is… if you don’t believe me, look who you’re with.

The woman is the slave of the slaves.

Yes, it is… if you don’t believe me, you’d better scream about it.

We make her paint her face and dance

We make her paint her face and dance

We make her paint her face and dance

We make her paint her face and dance

We make her paint her face and dance

We make her paint her face and dance

THE END

On a happy note, in 1971, Lennon also wrote and sang the song, titled, Merry Christmas. This has become a vacation favorite. It is questionable why he was left out. Christ In Christmas. But “X” is the Greek symbol for Christ.

This year marks the 26th anniversary of John Lennon’s death. His killer is still in jail, as it should be. The world of music was stripped of this musical genius. I miss his works and his imagination. If it weren’t for his outspoken beliefs, he might still be with us today. It may have been what killed him. But imagine (I wonder if you can), then there would never have been a John Lennon.

Employee fatigue during periods of high intensity on projects

A workplace hazard, fatigue can be defined as “the inability or decreased ability to respond to a situation, due to previous excessive mental, emotional, or physical activity.”

It is frequently cited as the most important cause of decreased productivity and efficiency of employees. It can, and often does, result in reduced vigilance during work, poor judgment and decision-making ability, along with loss of awareness and distraction during critical and complex tasks.

Fatigue can be due to overstimulation, in cases of periods of high-intensity project work, in which employees may be exhausted, stressed, nervous, overloaded, and experiencing potential burnout. The question is, how do you overcome this fatigue and still ensure optimal employee performance while protecting their health? Here are some tips:

1. Anticipate

A project manager should always anticipate that no matter how talented and brilliant their team may be, halfway through a project interests tend to wane and fatigue sets in. Long, endless work hours, nagging business questions, and constant deadline hurdles that annoy the client are sure to take their toll. A smart move would be to anticipate this and create a response before the situation starts to negatively affect the project team as a whole.

2. Evaluate

Note and evaluate employee performance to identify and pinpoint problems. Attendance, punctuality, attitude, work coming in and out, commitments and deadlines all need to be reflected to measure the efficiency and effectiveness of the project team. An honest, transparent, and understanding relationship with employees will go a long way to benefiting the entire project where employees feel comfortable reaching out and asking for your help long before they reach their breaking point.

3. Accept

Recognize the point where fatigue becomes evident in employee performance. The importance and impact of a period of high-intensity, high-demand work should not be dismissed or downplayed. Accept employee complaints and give due recognition for extra efforts followed by appropriate rewards.

4. tackle

Anticipating, evaluating, and recognizing a potential problem are critical to getting started. These must be followed by the implementation of practices that combat fatigue before it causes lasting damage.

Now some practical suggestions:

– Always keep a positive outlook and assess and include the emotional and physical health and well-being of employees in regular project status reports.

– Adopt and maintain a workload scale that meets project requirements but is not exceeded.

– Incorporate positive reinforcement, express gratitude and appreciation to your employees which helps boost their morale.

– Don’t discount rewards and time to rejuvenate. Communicate them clearly to the team and then move on.

– Encourage sharing of roles and responsibilities within the workforce to create team harmony, adjust work times and allow appropriate time off when needed.

– Allow recreational activities to de-stress, maintain and maintain an aura of joy, while ensuring optimal employee performance. Even a team lunch at a nice restaurant once every two weeks can help.

Job stress and the eventual onset of fatigue are inevitable in demanding jobs, but by investing time and effort in properly planning an effective combat approach, one can not only preserve coherence and harmony in the work environment, but you will also get benefits for you and your team. both.

The price of gold in different countries

Economists assume that the price of gold, although uncertain, is estimable. They come close to estimating like any other product with rising production costs.

Gold specialists and traders, by contrast, follow an older economic convention that emphasizes the monetary roles of existing gold stocks, which exceed the annual production of new metals by two orders of magnitude. The price of gold is believed to be largely based on expectations of changes in international macroeconomic variables and world trade.

Neither of these approaches has yielded good price predictions. The basic problem is that investment demands cannot be treated simply as changes in producers’ inventories for speculative or precautionary purposes. as with other merchandise. Thus, if we assert that manufactured demands should increase proportionally with world gross national product (GNP), with Leontief et al., we get forecasts of annual world gold consumption in the year 2000 that are ridiculously high. namely, two or three times the outputs of 1980. If we were to provide such increases in new gold production, it would require increases in real gold prices to $600 or $1,000 per ounce in constant dollar terms.

Clearly, these estimates are inconsistent with past patterns of change in supply and demand for manufactured gold, giving evidence of considerable sensitivity to changes in price (price elasticity). This prompts market pundits to re-examine gold’s role as a major store of value whose price responds less to movements in manufactured products and new gold production costs than to changes in previously mined gold stocks. Such asset holdings respond largely to changes in asset prices, ie interest rates, inflation and the exchange rate. Because prices are influenced by changes in macroeconomic variables, this second approach attempts to correlate gold prices directly with monetary variables, but has been no more successful than the commodity approach.

One of the reasons for the failure is that changes in gold stocks complicate international capital movements. Capital movements are driven by expectations of changes in asset prices, and these are sensitive to uncertainty about monetary policies. These complications discourage and confuse attempts to use statistical analysis directly to explain gold price movements.

We suggest treating gold like the share price of foreign assets in the portfolios of international investors averse to currency risks. The gold price itself, the exchange rate, the price level, and the interest rate are shown as proxy asset prices that enter with other exogenous variables and wealth in the demands of private and public investors here and abroad. These investors maximize utility subject to the constraints of monetary policy and balance of payments disequilibrium. As investors seek to maintain desired holding levels of different assets, foreign and domestic, markets for bullion or gold producing stocks respond according to conditional expectations of changes in key rates and uncertainties affecting value. of the currency of the country of origin. The challenge with this hypothesis is to find a way to test it empirically.

Mining stock exchanges provide a way around the difficulty. Since bullion and shares of gold mining companies are gross substitutes, the use of capital asset pricing theory allows us a simple test of this alternative model as applied to North American gold producers. North whose shares are listed on the stock exchange.

Our results show that trends in new gold production and price movements are not simple functions of commodity forecasts using conventional gold market analysis. Gold is best forecast as a stock price determined by the stock market. This implies a much more volatile market whenever monetary expectations become dominant. This is shown by the size of the prevailing premium for gold above its period production price. This can be two to three times higher than normal, enough to significantly discourage the growth of manufactured ones. Above this premium level, irregular price cycles arise from movements in stock positions among investors during periods of adjustment to the global monetary imbalance. The variation in the price is related to the sensitivity of the invented demands to the price. We show that investors who monitor macroeconomic variables in a fully identified model can successfully hedge against currency devaluations and player capital gains periodically through a strategy that includes gold securities in their investment portfolios.

The best safaris in Africa

As you drive through the picturesque savannah landscape, tall grass and pristine acacia trees dot the horizon. Animal sightings are overwhelming. At first sight, he will run to his camera to take a photo of the grazing animals; giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, impalas, waterbucks and oryx. It is incredible to think how many centuries these lands have traveled. The real hunt on safari is looking for the Big Five. Encounter elephants, rhinos, buffalo, leopards and of course lions, they all come with time. On some safaris, they can arrive in one day.

Have you always wanted to go on a safari, but imagined an incredibly high price? If you’re looking for a good safari on a budget, some are easily accessible, self-driving is allowed, and entrance fees are wallet-friendly. How about packing for a safari? There are some essential items not to forget. With our top picks in Africa, you’ll see all the expected animals, including a good shot at the Big Five.

What animals will I see on Safari?

It is normal to see a lot of wildlife and sometimes it can be overwhelming. Expect to see LOTS of wildebeest and antelope. Some parks have many elephants and giraffes. Depending on your luck and patience, seeing Lions is common, but you may only see a few. Seeing leopards and rhinos is rare. They are in many parks, but they are elusive. Leopards tend to hide in trees while rhinos stay away from vehicles.

Can I go on a safari on a budget?

Yes, you absolutely can! Safaris in East Africa are the most expensive, starting with the Serengeti and Masai Mara. If you’re on a tight budget, drop your plans to visit those parks as they will rack up a cost of several hundred each day you visit. While they are worth it, they are not cheap. The safaris in South Africa and Namibia are great, they have very cheap entrance fees and you can drive alone in a small sedan. Renting a car is cheap in those countries, which makes a safari very affordable. Another way to save money on safari is to bring or rent a tent. National Parks in Namibia and SA have campgrounds and it gets expensive if you don’t intend to camp.

What is the Best Safari in Africa?

Every safari is unique. The landscapes create a different environment for what you are seeing every day. Some make it very difficult to spot animals, while others are wide open and much easier. Some safaris need 4×4 and you usually need to hire a driver, especially those in East Africa. Autonomous driving is permitted on most safaris in South Africa, ideal for those independent travelers or backpackers on a budget. Finding the best African safari for YOU depends on what you’re looking for, but chances are you’ll find it in one of these parks:

The best safaris in Africa:

Masai Mara National Park, Kenya

What to expect:

This iconic park, when one thinks of a safari, rolling savannas teeming with animal life like no other, the Masai Mara fits the bill. Popular for decades as Africa’s premier park, the action here is second to none. In a matter of minutes you can see lions, rhinos, a leopard and some cheetahs. The Big 5 are all in this park and you have a good chance of seeing them all, possibly even in one day. Come during the wildebeest migration between July and early September for the most action and the famous river crossing, with the best time to come being early September.

• Autonomous driving is an option. The park requires only 4×4.

• The entrance fee to the park is $80 per day.

• Camping is available from $7 – $15 per person outside the park gates.

Norongoro Crater National Park, Tanzania

What to expect:

Norongoro Crater is the world’s largest unfilled, dormant caldera, with a floor of more than 100 square miles (260 square kilometers). The wildlife is impressive. Elephants, buffalo, giraffes and lions graze inside the crater. The elephants spend their last days in the Norongoro Crater. They travel hundreds of miles just to get there. The views are impressive with the crater walls surrounding the flat plains, and the wildlife is dense considering the size of the crater. It is a common side excursion as a day trip during a Serengeti safari.

• Autonomous driving is an option. They only require 4×4.

• The entrance fee to the park is $60 per day plus 18% VAT and $40 per day for the vehicle.

• Camp is $30 per night per person.

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

What to expect:

When most think of big game parks and some of Africa’s most iconic parks, the Serengeti is often the first to drop the tongue. This famous park in Tanzania borders the Masai Mara to the south and is a huge park. With over 3,000 lions and 1,000 leopards, the Serengeti is home to what most say is the largest population of big cats in Africa. There are also more than 2 million wildebeest, of which more than 1.5 million migrate annually to the northern Masai Mara as part of the Great Migration. Come during the migration between July and early September for the most action and the famous river crossings, with the best time to come in early September.

• Autonomous driving is an option. They only require 4×4.

• The entrance fee to the park is $60 per day plus 18% VAT and $40 per day for the vehicle.

• Camp is $30 per night per person.

Etosha National Park, Namibia

What to expect:

This gem of a park in Namibia, not far from the picturesque Namib sand dunes, is one of the best parks in Africa. It is a very large park with a central salt plan that is flooded during the rainy season. The park has excellent walks along the salt pan and savannah, as well as through the forest. Many natural and man-made watering holes help animals to congregate, especially during the dry season. There are three main camping areas with watering holes to see at night. The park is full of wildlife. Lions, cheetahs, leopards, rhinos, wildebeests, zebras, giraffes, antelopes and elephants. Everyone calls Etosha home. We had several close encounters with lions. A cheetah mom tried to kill an antelope with her two cubs. Hundreds of giraffes would congregate to drink water. Etosha was one of our favorite safaris and is a great option for those on a budget. For the quality of the animals and the accessibility, this could be the best budget safari in Africa. The best time to visit is from May to October during the dry season.

• Autonomous driving is an option and 4×4 is not required.

• The cost of admission to the park is $6 per day plus $2 per car per day.

• Camps for up to 8 people are $18 per night.

Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda

What to expect:

Mountain gorillas can only be found in four national parks, all bordering the Virunga Mountains. You can visit the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, the Virunga National Park in the Congo, the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda and the Mgahinga National Park in Uganda. Bwindi Impenetrable Forest has the largest number of mountain gorillas of any park, home to nearly 400 of the 900 living mountain gorillas. Visits are daily and you can often track large families with several large male silverbacks and young gorillas. This is unique to most African safaris, which is single-species hunting and entirely on foot, but the memories of this may beat all others.

• The best time to visit is from May to September when it is not the rainy season. Prices are lower during the rainy season, making it a great time for those on a budget.

• The Bwindi Mountain Trek costs $600 per person during the main season and $450 during the low season (April, May and November).

• Camping is $5 per person in the national park and $7-$10 at rest camps outside the park.

Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda

What to expect:

This highly underrated park is possibly the most diverse of these parks. It is home to the largest waterfall on the Nile River, Murchison Falls, along with excellent safaris and scenic Nile River boat cruises. The delta here by Lake Albert offers excellent hippo and bird watching. The savannah is impressive with rolling hills. We loved the unique landscaping in Murchison that was alphabetized with palm trees, a rare thing in the savannah. The park is home to many giraffes, hippos, exotic birds, lions, antelope, buffalo, crocodiles, and the occasional leopard. Chimpanzee walks are also available. The best time to visit is from May to September.

• Autonomous driving is an option and 4×4 is not required.

• The entrance fee to the park is $40 per day.

• Camp is $8 per person at Red Chili Rest Camp.

Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana

What to expect:

The Moremi Game Reserve, in northwestern Botswana, is adjacent to the Okavango Delta, and is well worth a visit when in Moremi. This park is one of the best safaris for self-drive enthusiasts. Coarse sand roads make for fun but challenging driving conditions through forests and smaller open plains. You can drive for a couple of days or take the longer trek through Moremi to Chobe for a 5-7 day Safari. Wildlife is very dense with elephants, giraffes, wildebeests, antelopes, lions, leopards, hyenas and the rare wild dogs. The best time to visit is June through September during the dry season, but when flooding is at its highest in the Okavango River Delta.

• Autonomous driving is an option. They only require 4×4.

• The entrance fee to the park is $11 per day plus $5 per day per vehicle.

• The cost of camping ranges from $15 to $50 per person, depending on each campsite.

Chobe National Park, Botswana

What to expect:

Chobe National Park is one of Africa’s premier parks and has some of the densest concentrations of animals in Africa. They are home to the second largest number of elephants in Africa. The animals travel hundreds of kilometers to make the journey to the Chobe River. Along with Moremi, this park is great for self-driving enthusiasts. Their game drives are excellent, but the real bonus is the Chobe River. Take a sunset boat cruise and watch as elephants cross the river, hundreds of hippos eating, exotic birds, crocodiles laying down and many other animals can be seen. The occasional lion can be found on the banks of the river having a drink. The best time to visit is from May to September.

• Autonomous driving is an option. They only require 4×4.

• The entrance fee to the park is $7 per day.

• The cost of camping ranges from $15 to $50 per person, depending on each campsite.

The best SEO software I’ve used so far

I have over 10 years of digital marketing experience and use all kinds of SEO software. SEO is a process of research, decision making, and implementation. SEO processes are keyword research, site audit, backlink audit, backlink research and you need to check keyword performance in search engine. There is no end to the SEO process, the ones mentioned above are the basic process. This article is about the best SEO software that I have used so far to perform all SEO tasks.

Google Keyword Planner is the only tool I use for keyword research. I believe that the AdWords app can only collect accurate data from the company’s own search engine. I do not blame other keyword research tools, but the data of how many people search on the Google search engine only Google can provide accurately. I know that today Keyword Planner only shows accurate search volume for accounts with an active paid campaign. My suggestion is to run some paid campaign and get accurate data as this will help both ways. There are no free keyword research tools, just paid tools you have on the market. Instead of paying just for keyword research, run AdWords and get the accurate data.

Semrush is my favorite SEO software when working with any SEO task as it is capable of doing all the tasks that SEO requires. Although it can do all the tasks, I suggest it mainly for SEO auditing. Basically, I do the audit at three levels. The first level is the site audit to find the general technical errors of the site. The second level is an individual page and its content audit to optimize for a keyword. The third level is the accessibility audit to check page load speed and user experience. I always use Semrush for site auditing as it perfectly covers my first and second level of audits. In the overall site audit, it checks over 200 checklists and classifies them into errors, warnings, and notes. This gives an idea that makes the most of the effects in SEO. The individual page audit is the most powerful tool to use as it collects our competitor’s data and suggests we optimize a page to target a keyword.

Lighthouse is a Chrome developer tool for SEO auditing. You can get it when you click inspect by right clicking on your page. My third level SEO audit can be done with this free tool. Check over 200 checklists in categories like Performance, Progressive Web App, Best Practices, Accessibility, and SEO. You will be surprised at the results it gives you even if it is free. The page speed check comes under Performance and checks how you have used colors on your website. Also, it provides a checklist to check manually. This will help people who are new to SEO as they can learn from it.

Backlink research and backlink auditing are very important SEO tasks. Although it can be easily done using Semrush, Ahref has more new data. I heard most SEO people recommend Ahref as it is a dedicated software for backlink research with fresh and accurate data.

Ranking tracking is a very important task to know how our target keywords rank in search engines. Google Webmaster Central and Analytics provide search analytics data, but it is not live or accurate data. Using paid software to track keyword rankings is the best idea. Paid software like Ahref and Semrush give you an accurate keyword position report with historical data. Semrush and Ahref will cost you a minimum of 100 USD per month on average if you are able to buy just one software for all tasks. I suggest Semrush as it has all the tools for complete SEO of a site.

There may be more advanced SEO software like Majestic for backlink research, but I decided to write which one I like and use the most. Finally, there is another software that I have used for keyword position tracking: Rank Tank. These are the best SEO programs I have used so far. I hope this article is useful for SEO beginners.

How to potty train a toddler and rid your child of diaper dependency

Let’s face it, children are comfortable in diapers and it’s the only way they know to relieve themselves. Getting a child out of diapers and onto the potty can be quite a challenge, but definitely one of the most important milestones in a toddler’s life.

Many parents struggle to find a good solution to get their young children out of diapers. Believe it or not, 60% of parents struggle with potty training, usually due to a combination of poor advice, trial and error, and lack of knowledge. This can lead to a stressful situation for both the child and the parents.

Delaying training can also lead to mental and health risks for the child. Imagine the total embarrassment for a child who is 4 years old or close to going to kindergarten, where he is the only one who is not potty trained. A child who is having a difficult and stressful time transitioning to the bathroom may develop unresolved constipation issues. In this situation, a child may prevent him from doing his business and intestinal problems may appear. This can be very serious, but the good news is that it can be prevented.

Most of the time, new parents listen to advice from friends and family on how to potty train a young child. Unfortunately, what works for one child may not be right for another. Here are some things not to do when trying to potty train.

1. You keep buying fancy training aids because you find them so compelling.

Sometimes simpler is better and a fancy big training aid can confuse and complicate the situation.

2. You try a seemingly popular technique and it doesn’t work, so you abandon it altogether.

As with anything with children, consistency is key. Most things don’t work right away, but if you believe in it, keep working at it.

3. You let the kid run the show because he has to know when to go, right?

Children need guidance and direction. They need to be shown what to do over and over again before it finally clicks for them. Repetition is important.

Make sure your child is ready for potty training. This will ensure a fun and enjoyable experience for everyone. That’s how you’ll know your child is ready.

1. The child may remain dry for long periods (usually hours).

2. The child understands and can follow simple instructions.

3. The child is aware of what is happening.

4. The most important thing is that the child shows an interest in using the bathroom and removing diapers.

Treatment of premature ejaculation: what is the best method?

One of the most frequent questions I hear men ask is where can I find the best treatments for premature ejaculation. Well, the truth is that finding treatments for PD is not a difficult thing to do. The problem is finding an effective treatment that works and doesn’t break the bank. In this article we will discuss many of the treatments that are being used now, and I will also reveal the secret method that worked for me and cured my premature ejaculation.

While searching for treatments for premature ejaculation, I am sure that you have come across several techniques to cure this problem. You’ll find everything from pills, desensitizing sprays and special condoms to help you last longer in bed. Some of these treatments may give you a few extra minutes, but the problem is that they don’t address the real causes of PD. The problem is most likely due to excessive masturbation in the past, you have trained your ejaculatory reflex to ejaculate as quickly as possible. Once he learns to control his ejaculatory reflex, he will have full control over when he would like to cum, and this will give him all the energy he needs to make his lady happy.

Another method that is being applied is the compression technique. This method teaches men to have sex as usual until you feel ready to cum. When you feel this happening, ask your woman to squeeze the tip of his penis and hold it for as long as necessary until she no longer feels the urge to ejaculate. The problem with this option is that many men have reported a less powerful erection after applying the compression technique, which can be almost as embarrassing as premature ejaculation itself.

We don’t have time to go over all the premature ejaculation treatments on offer, so we’ll talk about what has worked best for me. A program called ejaculation coach has been the most successful for me. This is a training program that taught me how to control my arousal before intercourse and how to control my ejaculatory reflex so that I can cum when I decide to too.

Polynesian Weight Loss: 12 Diet Secrets To Speed ​​Up Your Weight Loss

1. Boost your weight loss by starting with a 24-hour water fast. Drink a lot of water.

2. Jumpstart your metabolism by eating small meals structured around lean protein every 3 hours.

3. Drink plain water with each meal, up to one liter. This alone will boost your weight loss.

4. Increase your fiber by eating lots of vegetables, or take a fiber supplement every day.

5. Eliminate all junk food and low-nutrient foods like bread, ketchup, and diet foods.

6. Enter your calories by making the first meals the largest and the last meals the smallest.

7. Touch your carbs. This is a fundamental weight loss and one of the most powerful tips.

8. Eat your last meal at least 2 hours before bedtime. Four hours is even better, but more difficult.

9. Do 30 to 60 minutes of moderate cardio first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

10. Drink green tea and take a multivitamin every day.

11. Do not eat soy or soy products.

12. Do not eat dairy products or drink milk.

Polynesian bodies are very sensitive to carbohydrates, and of all the diet and weight loss strategies employed, this is by far the most important. You must manage your carbohydrates carefully if you ever hope to achieve weight loss. This means cutting out refined sugars, junk food, fried foods, processed foods, and especially so-called diet foods. They are nothing more than cleverly disguised junk food that will surreptitiously sabotage your weight loss efforts. Also, of the healthy carbs you eat, you should cut back throughout the day, eating most of the starchy carbs early in the day, when your body is more likely to burn them for energy. Towards the end of the day, swap the carbs in your meals for slow-burning, fibrous vegetables, and cut carbs completely from your last meal.

Most Polynesian bodies fall into the endomorph category, with elements of the other two body types, but are primarily endomorphic. As such, our bodies often require more cardio training to achieve weight loss. This is not necessarily a disadvantage, just a fact. Everyone is different, but if you are prepared to do whatever it takes, you will succeed. Eat your last meal at least 2 hours before bed. Upon waking, drink a cup of green tea and at least two glasses of plain water. Then do 30 to 60 minutes of moderate, steady cardio, depending on how much time you have. In this fasted state your body has the correct hormonal environment to mobilize fat and accelerate weight loss by 300% more than at any other time of the day. This is the best time to burn off that body fat, and the effects of this cardio session will fuel your weight loss for several hours afterward.

Take advantage of your calories to achieve greater weight loss. Polynesians cannot follow the typical American diet and expect to lose weight. The average American worker usually skips breakfast; the deadly sin of weight loss, he works all day without eating a proper meal, only to come home and eat like there is no tomorrow. Then off to bed to prepare to repeat this atrocity the next day. If I flipped this plan around, I would have a better time to eat, regardless of the quality of that meal. It would be much better to have a big breakfast, spend the whole day snacking at work, and then skip dinner. This would be a wonderful weight loss plan.

Finally, don’t be fooled by the hype surrounding milk, soy and soy products. Soy contains estrogen properties that interfere with the body’s natural release of testosterone. It’s in 95% of all processed foods in one form or another; check the labels. Who wants more estrogen in the body that promotes fat storage as well as feminine characteristics? Not only are our boys more obese than ever, but young boys are developing female bodies that include breast tissue. Girls are developing pubescent traits at very young ages. Much of this is due to increased estrogen introduced into their bodies from processed foods and milk. Yes, dairy cows have two staple foods in their diet, corn and soybeans. The slogan ‘Got Milk’ is a multi-million dollar advertising campaign a year. I did not buy it. If it is not natural for us to drink our own mother’s milk after the first years of our lives, how could it be good to drink the milk of an animal? It will derail your weight loss efforts.

Follow these 12 diet secrets to lose weight and you will see success.

Buyer’s Remedies for a Seller Who Breaches a Property Sales Agreement: A Basic Guide from Property Lawyers

When making a property deal, the seller will generally not want to back out of the deal. However, the seller may change his mind for reasons such as getting a better offer from someone else, certain circumstances that would cause him to sell the property, or any other apprehension the seller may have. The course of action available to the buyer would then be to claim damages from the seller, terminate the contract and recover the amount of the deposit with any additional expenses incurred, or go to court to seek enforcement of the purchase agreement.

The buyer should beware of the fact that, despite the legal remedies mentioned above, the seller may have included some contingency clause in the agreement that would allow him to terminate the contract without incurring penalties, for example, if the contract has A provision for the seller to back out should they be unable to find another home to reside in despite making a genuine attempt for the same, taking legal action against the buyer in such a scenario would likely amount to very little.

The seller can go to court to be ordered to complete the deal. This is an option primarily in cases where the seller is able but unwilling to sell the property. In addition, the buyer must be able to fulfill his part of the agreement and the contract must list very clearly, without any ambiguity, all the necessary details such as the amount of the down payment, the security deposit, the legal description of the property and any other property in her. that is included with it, financing details, terms and conditions, etc. If the court finds that the seller is breaching the purchase agreement for his personal benefit, there is a good chance that the court will order performance of the contract, which will result in termination of the deal.
