Burntwood Adorned With Yellow Ribbons To Remember Stephen Sutton

Ribbons have always been used to remember a notable person who had done great deeds and in Burntwood, they are doing just that. Yellow ribbons have appeared all over a Midland town in preparation for the first death anniversary of Stephen Sutton, a cancer hero who has touched a lot of lives when he was alive.

On May 14 last year, Burntwood was filled with memorials for the 19-year old cancer hero. This year, they will repeat the same feat as they celebrate the life of Stephen Sutton. Friends and family will be adorning their doors, gardens, outside furniture and cars with yellow ribbons.

Stephen Sutton was born and raised in Burntwood. He was an active child during his youth. He played a lot of sports like football and long distance running. Aside from athletics, Sutton was also a straight-A student in his Chase Terrace Technology College.
He was set for a career in medicine and had interviews in Cambridge.
Unfortunately, at the age of 15, he was diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer. In 2012, his cancer was deemed incurable according to the doctors.

But his disease did not put him down. Instead of getting sad, he became a cancer activist. He began to participate in many different cancer charity events. He even started his own blog and a fundraiser alongside Teenage Cancer Trust with a goal of ₤10,000.

Soon his goal increased to ₤1,000,000 but in March of 2014, his fundraiser had raised about ₤4,000,000 and more.

His story and Sutton himself became an inspiration not only to cancer patients like him, but to everyone he meets. He was even appointed as Member of the British Empire (MBE). He died surrounded by his family and loved ones in his sleep just after receiving the MBE.

And a year after his death, the people of Burntwood wants to make sure that his memory is alive and that he is not forgotten. They also think that it is only a fitting tribute for Burntwood to turn yellow again.

Stephen’s favorite season is summer and that is the reason why they chose the color yellow.

Why Is UX Important To SEO And Web Design?

seo-design1
An exemplary SEO topped with a simple Web design – this was the eminent strategy back in the days where companies were able to climb the ladder of search engines even without the prowess of a great web design. This lead to a lesser quality in user experience. Due to this, Google changed various part of its algorithms and now, it has put in top priority, the UX or user experience in a particular site.

SEO keywords were the sole basis of search engine in the past, but as UX became part of the search engine’s algorithm, Web design have become more and more user-friendly. This also became the rise of other companies that could balance everything. One of the companies that possess this power of harmoniously bringing Web design, SEO and UX altogether, is the Australian SEO company of Oliver Wood.

One of the recent algorithm change in Google was the dubbed phenomenon, ‘Mobilegeddon’ which practically increased the user experience when it comes to mobile devices. We can now see that UX has really become a great aspect in search engine optimization, however, why is this the case?

The first reason why google placed UX as part of critera of SEO is the Loading speed of the page. Many users tend to leave the website immediately if the site doesn’t load quickly. This made it a key factor in SEO which results to a sited to not appear in searches if its web design slows it down.

The second reason is – for the user to entertain a site, they should have a mix of great content with an appropriate web design. Keyword spamming and many more climbed the search engines in the past, but now it won’t. This completes the optimization package and it will definitely give users a better experience which will further result in your company, climbing the ladder of search engine.

Without putting a great amount of consideration to UX, your site would definitely be left out in the search engine which will evidently result in risking your whole business. Companies like Oliver Wood, Web SEO Master and many more will help you achieve this feat and surely, you’ll be able to get yourself known in the net in no time at all.

One of the Long Beach’s landmarks is a Psychic Temple. This is considered as one of the oldest commercial structures in the area. The art of accurate psychic readings has been an industry that has gained much market through time. Many people are interested in gaining accurate psychic readings from experts.

However, this well known Psychic Temple is set to be converted into an office space. The people in downtown Long Beach aim to attract new businesses and residents in the area by redeveloping different structures.

The advertising agency, InterTrend Communications, is tasked to make new sophisticated improvements on the brick building located at 224 E. Broadway. The advertising agency will convert the top two floors into offices for different firms that will be interested in renting space. The top floors were formerly spaces for residents. The ground floor and the basement will be open for retail tenants like restaurants.

This old structure in downtown Long Beach has long been a problem for the officials in the city. This was originally purchased in the year 2000 hoping that they could have a developer who is willing to redevelop and renovate the dilapidated structure.

Since the Psychic Temple was an official landmark and that it could not be razed, it is estimated to have a negative assessed value of $350,000. This figure was according to the chief executive of InterTrend, Julia Huang. The company agreed to the officials of Long Beach to fix the property. InterTrend took the property’s title after paying Long Beach City with $1. Julia Huang said that the property was so dilapidated and her company immediately loved the prospect of putting something new to the structure.

JR van Dijs, Inc., a local developer, will be doing the makeover. This is estimated to cost $2 million.

The Psychic Temple which was a Romanesque Revival-type of structure was completed in the year 1905 by one named WR Price who was a former Baptist preacher. He is the founder of a new doctrine which he calls the Practical Psychology. The founder raised money from his members in order to build the grand structure which was also referred as the Psychological Temple. However, the cult members did not get along well and the leader lost control of his society. The building was then sold at an auction in 1911.

Experts Say That Bathrooms Should Be Cleaned Top Down

bathroom

Gainesville Florida – April 10, 2015 – Bathrooms have contain a lot of functioning amenities and components like compact vanity units, toilets, bathtubs, showers and many others. This is also probably why bathrooms are known for their reputation of being the toughest room in the house to clean.

According to Steven Andrade who co-owns the Gainesville-based Fresh Maids, cleaning the bathroom can become very time consuming if it is not cleaned frequently. He says that normally, the amount of time spent cleaning a bathroom would depend on its size but the estimated time it takes a professional cleaning team to finish a bathroom cleaning job is about three hours more or less.

Andrade said that the first step to cleaning a bathroom is always the laundry. One should take out the shower curtains and all the cloth inside the bathroom and wash it. You can use a washing machine so that while it is being cleaned, you can start working on the bathroom itself.

It is important to go step by step or follow directions when cleaning the bathrooms. Having steps is mostly practiced by professional cleaning teams when they do a chore.

According to another expert, Leann Praigg, the co-owner of Merry Maids which too is based in Gainesville, every room has steps that can be followed but the bathroom is the room with the most number of steps and a higher difficulty. So instead of following traditional basic cleaning steps, one should clean bathrooms according to its direction, she says.

This would mean that the cleaning should be done from top to bottom. Start cleaning the higher parts of the bathroom like dusting the cobwebs. In the next step, it will be all about tidying up. The last step would mostly deal with soaking what needs to soaked and scrubbed.

For the cleaning products that you can use, these experts say that you can order cleaning products from the professionals but one should remember that the products and the tools that are use may sometimes vary.

You should also know that key to a successful bathroom cleaning is time. Make sure that you take time to clean everything from the ceiling to the floor. Never rush.

Little Boys And Male Adults Love My Little Pony

ponyzChildren certainly love My Little Pony Characters. A kid would be thrilled to wear a hoodie with Rainbow Dash. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has a large fan base who will be too excited to wear my little pony hoodie.

On the other hand, kids are confused whether to wear My Little Pony hoodie to school. Apparently, school authorities at Buncombe County Schools in Asheville, North Carolina responded to bullying by forbidding a kid from bringing his Rainbow Dash backpack to school. The bag seemed to trigger bullying and some kids are afraid of wearing their hoodies to school because they are afraid of being bullied.

When 9 year old Grayson Bruce told his mother that he was being bullied due to his My Little Pony backpack, his mother Noreen was outraged because she knew that My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is sending a good message to kids. During the interview, Grayson reported that he was pushed and called horrible names.

After learning of the school’s position in the bullying situation, the family made a Change.org petition so that Grayson will be allowed to bring his backpack to school and for a crackdown on bullying. The petition generated more than 4,500 signatures. An outpouring of support was received by Grayson and his family and when the story broke in March, one of creators of show, Lauren Faust stood by Grayson.

The school’s stance has attracted the attention of media big names like Glenn Beck. He has encouraged Grayson to remain as he is and have the balls to be different.

Boys are actually shamed for expressing anything that is not macho. However, My Little Pony has a large male adult audience and the group is quite active in their online community. The group that calls themselves “bronies” has been the subject of a 2012 documentary Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony.

My Little Pony is a great show with six important characteristics: kindness, generosity, honesty, laughter, loyalty and magic. There is no violence or aggression but the show is focused on girls. Anything that a boy does that seems girly is mocked and bullied.
