It has been found out that nearly half of adult internet users have typed their names in search engines like Google to really see what information about them is out there. Most results showed pages in social networking sites, mainly, along with occasional mentions from other tracking and aggregating sites. What they may not fully understand, however, is how exactly did those information end up there? After all, what was put up did not undergo some kind of a filtering or selection process, as whether their claims are true or not. Here is where online reputation management comes in. If you want to know more about this topic, you can read the tips and guide below.

This term may sound new and foreign to one who is not so technically adept. Well, for one thing, if one is to reduce online reputation management to its most fundamental kernel, it is basically just taking control of what people get to read and see about you, may it be by creating new content, hiding and editing out malicious or negative content, or promoting positive and existing ones. Even the younger people do it, as they are now being more and more skilled with manipulating different privacy settings as to control who gets to see their content and those who do not.

Managing existing content is the easier part, especially now that social networking sites have been more conscious about issues on privacy, hence the creation of privacy settings. Creating new content, however, is a different task altogether, something more challenging and needing a bit more creativity.

There are lots of places and websites to choose from: social networking sites, professional working sites, school-related sites, media sites, corporate sites, industry blogs, industry-specific groups and forums, resume sites, and bookmarking sites, to name a few. Some of the things that are often taken for granted, and sometimes even ignored and overlooked, are the special interest sites. As one would know, there are many websites catering to the interests and needs of very small groups of individuals.

One website that a lot of people have been working with for quite some time now is Script Buddy. It is a full featured screenwriting software created especially for those writers who find little time and patience to format. Using a fully functioning Java script, it does the formatting while you do all the creative input and writing. Indeed, it has been an indispensable tool for the aspiring scriptwriter. This site not only boasts of a nicely-designed software, but also it has a wide and extensive community of scriptwriters as well. Furthermore, they have this service where viewers can comment and rate my works, quite similar to widely used and well known online reputation websites.

As one would see, a site which is seemingly specific, having a crowd too focused and demographically narrow could also be a potent tool for Online Reputation Management. This is used for creating a presence that is well-branded among a selected few who would most likely be interested in your content.

Former Chadian leader receives death sentence

Filed under: Uncategorized — Admin @ 3:58 pm, September 9, 2021.

Friday, August 15, 2008

Hissen Habre, the former President of Chad, has received a death sentence for plotting to overthrow the Chadian government. He is currently in exile and is living in Senegal.

In addition, the head of Rally of Forces for Change, Timane Erdimi, was sentenced to death in absentia as well as 10 other individuals. Erdimi is related to the current President of Chad, Idriss Déby. 32 other people were penalized with hard labor.

The inquiry said that Habre’s government was responsible for 40,000 politically motivated murders and 200,000 torture cases.

The trial, which began on Tuesday, lasted for three days. The individuals tried in the hearing, received no legal defence throughout the period. El Hadj Diouf, Habre’s lawyer in Senegal, stated that “this is a manipulation … I’m not taking this seriously.” Habre is expected to be tried in Senegal per the request of the African Union. The trial could potentially be years away, as no official date has been set.

Since being forced out of power in 1990, Habre has fought in a rebellion against the Chadian government along the eastern border of the country.

U.S. Congress passes CAFTA with 2 vote House margin

Filed under: Uncategorized — Admin @ 3:45 pm, September 8, 2021.

Thursday, July 28, 2005

The U.S. House of Representatives approved the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) early morning Thursday, with a narrow vote of 217 in favor, 215 against. Voting was held open for an hour, 45 minutes past the House’s 15-minute voting rule as the President along with other supporters lobbied into the night.

The vote was so close, if one House member changed a “Yea” vote to a “Nay” vote, CAFTA would have failed in a 216-216 tie.

In tallying the votes, 25 Republicans, mostly from Midwest Corn Belt and Rust Belt states and the Southeast United States’s textile industrial belt, broke party line to vote against the measure. Two Republicans were present, but refused to vote.

The Democrats presented a more united front. All but 15 Democrats present voted against the treaty. Independent House members, who usually vote with the Democrats also voted against the measure.

Supporters of the measure include President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, U.S. Trade Representative Rob Portman and Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez. Opponents included most House Democrats.

The trade agreement already passed the Senate in June. President Bush has said he will sign it into law.

DR-CAFTA encompasses the following components:

  • Services: all public services are to be open to private investment.
  • Investment: governments promise to grant ironclad guarantees to foreign investment.
  • Government procurement: All government purchases must be open to transnational bids.
  • Market access: governments pledge to reduce and eventually to eliminate tariffs and other measures that protect domestic products.
  • Agriculture: duty-free import and elimination of subsidies on agricultural products.
  • Intellectual property rights: privatization of and monopoly over technological know-how.
  • Antidumping rules, subsidies and countervailing rights: governments commit to phase out protectionist barriers in all sectors.
  • Competition policy: the dismantling of national monopolies.
  • Dispute resolution: the right of transnationals to sue countries in private international courts.
  • Environmental protection: the enforcement of environmental laws and improvement of the environment.
  • Labor standards: the enforcement of the International Labour Organization‘s core labor standards.
  • Transparency: the reduction of government corruption.
  • Test-Data Exclusivity for pharmaceutical corporations

Teräsbetoni frontman J. Ahola on representing Finland at Eurovision 2008 & more

Filed under: Uncategorized — Admin @ 3:36 pm, .

Sunday, April 13, 2008

This article is a featured article. It is considered one of the best works of the Wikinews community. See Wikinews:Featured articles for more information.

Teräsbetoni means “steel-reinforced concrete”, and is also the name of a Finnish heavy metal band formed in 2002. Their music, which centres on an honourable warrior lifestyle or on metal itself, quickly became popular in 2003 on the Internet, resulting in a petition by fans being sent to several record labels demanding a recording deal. In late 2004 the band signed to Warner Music Finland, and the following year debut single Taivas lyö tulta rose to number one in the Finnish charts, and debut album Metallitotuus hit number two and went platinum, and has now sold about 47,000 copies.

The band, who sing exclusively in Finnish, have just released their third album, Myrskyntuoja. The lead single on this album is Missä miehet ratsastaa, which Teräsbetoni decided to enter in the Finnish selections for the 2008 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, where it was selected to go on to the semi-final in Belgrade, Serbia as Finland’s representative this year. Although Finland has seen limited success in the contest, their only victory was with a comparable group. In 2006 hard rock band Lordi – whose monster costumes and pyrotechnic displays are famed – achieved a record 292 points in the final with Hard Rock Hallelujah.

Teräsbetoni’s frontman, vocalist and bass guitarist Jarkko Ahola’s fame extends beyond the band he heads. He also features in Finnish symphonic power metal cover supergroup Northern Kings, alongside Marco Hietala of Nightwish and Tarot, Tony Kakko of Sonata Arctica and Juha-Pekka Leppäluoto of Charon.

Wikinews was able to conduct an exclusive interview with Jarkko Ahola to discuss these various achievements. This interview is now published below for the first time.

The dentist for tooth problem


Jeffrey Raudzus

Dentist is one expert to whom I am never looking forward to visit. I remember those childhood days when I had gone several times, either for tooth extraction or because of some dental problem that I was suffering.

Well dentist’s clinic is one place that I never liked going. In fact the mere thought of going to one gave me nightmares. While the dentist is actually helping us by giving us a treatment but the horror is something that over shadows the good work. There have been so many days when before the visit to the dentist in used to get scary dreams at night. Now we have grown up and have become more tolerable to things like pain. Like an adult now, let us understand how the dentist works. He makes use of a number of tools and instruments and in a couple of sittings and solves our dental problem. After the pain we realise that now we have healthier teeth. So for the treatment the dentist makes good use of the dental instruments. Dentistry is a wide branch of medical science that deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases and problems related to the teeth. Such doctors are called dentist. The dental problem generally occurs because of bad dental habits or excess consumption of sweets. Things like not brushing twice daily or eating chocolates daily is like welcoming dental problem on your own. These doctors are well trained and generally receive 4- 6 years of professional training on dentistry. They have learned well about the dental problem and also as to how to deal with the dental problem. The instruments are majorly used for tooth extraction, examination, cleaning and restoring of the teeth. The first set of instruments is the examining instruments These help the dentist to have a clear view of the teeth and that is how he identifies the problem. They are: 1. Mirror Mirror is used for looking clearly at the regions that are not very visible and some regions that are not at all visible. The mirror makes the visibility clear. Another benefit is that this helps in reflecting the light on the affected region for improved visibility. 2. Probes The probe includes the following. — Explorers — Straight probe — Periodontal probe There are some other instruments that are used for retractions. They are: 1. The mouth Pop 2. The cheek retractor 3. The lip retractor 4. The tongue retractor The instruments for restorative purposes include the following 1. Excavators The excavators are used for the removal of the soft tissues. This is generally to treat the teeth that have some kind of decay. There is a spoon excavator and there is also a chisel. Chisels are also further classified. The other major instruments are 1. Dental drills The dental drills are of different shapes and of different speed. They are used for breaking the tooth or for making and change in the structure of the teeth. 2. Burs The dental burs are usually made up of tungsten and have a diamond coated or stainless steel tip. There is different classification of burs.

Greek demonstrators protest austerity measures

Filed under: Uncategorized — Admin @ 3:45 pm, September 5, 2021.

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Protestors in Greece, rallying against austerity measures, have clashed with police in the capital of Athens.

Some people participating in the rally — attended by thousands of teachers and students — threw stones at riot police, who responded by employing pepper spray, although the BBC described the protests as being generally peaceful. Demonstrators say that a recent austerity proposal, which is to include pension cuts and an increase in taxes, will adversely affect the education sector.

Teachers, along with hospital workers and public servants, have started a two-day strike over the measures. Also present were 150 members of the armed forces, who protested having their bonuses lowered.

Meanwhile, earlier on Tuesday, approximately a hundred demonstrators with the Communist Party broke through locks at the Acropolis and hung up banners saying: “Peoples of Europe — Rise Up”.

Communist Member of Parliament Nikos Papaconstantinou commented: “We want to send a message to the farthest reaches of Greece and Europe. Similar measures that eliminate social security are taken across Europe. But popular anger will rattle imperialist organisations.”

The austerity plan comes shortly after the Greek government said it would introduce spending cuts to obtain a loan package by the EU and International Monetary Fund, aimed at helping Greece recover from a financial crisis.

Bird Flu found in Africa

Filed under: Uncategorized — Admin @ 3:11 pm, .

Wednesday, February 8, 2006

The H5N1 Avian Flu virus, also known as Bird Flu, has been found in Nigeria by Italian scientists. Tests done on samples in a laboratory confirm that the strain is the one that can kill people, although no human cases have been reported said the Paris-based United Nations body. This is the first time is has appeared on the continent.

Reports say tests of the virus closely resemble the virus in Asia. The virus has been discovered in poultry flocks in a large Nigerian farm. “It is the first report of the disease in Africa,” the Paris-based World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) said on Wednesday.

“It’s going to be very difficult to mount an eradication campaign,” said Dr. Alex Thiermann, president of the OIE’s international animal health code, from Paris, France. “With what we have today, it is a highly pathogenic H5N1 – the same, or very closely related to the previous ones,” said Thiermann. He also added, “a full genetic analysis of sample viruses is expected to be completed by late Thursday.”

Maria Zampaglione of the Paris-based OIE said “An outbreak has been detected. A local poultry farm keeping 46,000 birds was affected, of which 42,000 were infected and 40,000 of those, died.” The farm is located in Jaji, which is a village in the northern state of Kaduna.

“The farm is located near the Niger Delta, one of the largest over-wintering areas for wild birds in Africa.” said Thiermann.

Quarantine measures on the control and movement of poultry have been taken, and the farm has been disinfected said Nigerian authorities.

“However, it is too early to say how serious the outbreak is and how big its spread could be,” said Ilaria Capua of the Italian bird flu centre in Padua. “We have to be cautious in evaluating the possible implications of these findings.”

In Rome, Samuel Jutzi, a director of the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization said, “if the situation in Nigeria gets out of control, it will have a devastating impact on the poultry population in the region. It will seriously damage the livelihoods of millions of people and it will increase the exposure of humans to the virus.”

“When you have 46,000 chickens in a house, usually you have some degree of biocontainment…So these (chickens) are not likely to be the ones to first encounter migratory waterfowl,” Thiermann said.

Wildlife circles have been debating on whether or not wild birds are spreading the virus around the globe. Experts believe they are playing a role but most believe poultry movement, poultry products and poultry manure is the main cause of the spreading of the virus.

“But probably not in this case,” said Thiermann. “While it’s too early to blame the wildlife, it’s very likely to be in an area that’s remote enough that it’s not likely to be associated with international trade.”

OIE spokeswoman Zampiglione also said, “Experts had been fearing an African outbreak for months. The conditions there are more likely to lead to contagion from birds to man.”

What’s Involved In Hardwood Floor Refinishing?

Filed under: Bulk Materials Handling — Admin @ 3:13 pm, September 4, 2021.

byAlma Abell

Hardwood floor refinishing in Manhattan is a job that takes a great deal of specialized equipment as well as operators who are highly skilled and patient. Wood floor refinishing is a common home improvement job but it is one that takes a considerable amount of research as well as time and “know-how.” Although a very ambitious DIYer might be able to do this job, for the majority of homeowners this is something to turn over to the professionals. The entire process can take a considerable amount of time as the job must be evaluated and then the floors must be prepared, sanded and sealed; there are just too many places where an error can take place that will be a long lasting problem.

The first thing to do is to determine whether the planks in your existing hardwood floors are even good candidates for refinishing. You need to determine to what extent, if any, the floors have suffered from pet urine or water stains as well as deep gouges or scratches; the baseboard needs to be removed to see whether the floor boards are thick enough to be sanded and you need to determine what the finish was that was last used on the floors, was it wax, varnish or polyurethane?

If the floor slats do not have deep scratches or gouges and are at least ¾” thick then the first hurdle has been passed. The next stage of floor refinishing in Manhattan will take a number of days. The entire floor surface must be cleaned; any holes that are found from nails, staples or deep scrapes are to be filled. During this phase there may be boards that are beyond repair and must be replaced, at this time you have to find boards that closely match those that exist. Pull up the door thresholds and baseboards. If adjacent rooms use the same wood flooring you will want to refinish them both even though the floors in one room are still in excellent condition, otherwise they will not be consistent and will be quite noticeable at doorways.

The floor is then sanded with a heavy drum sander; this machine looks more like a miniature steam roller than anything else. After two or three passes with this machine the floors will be flat but raw wood. After a thorough cleaning the final step in floor refinishing in Manhattan is to give the floors multiple coats of high quality polyurethane which is the best sealer to combat shoe scuffs and sunlight.

Even the best maintained floors will begin to show the effects of age and use, when this happens floor refinishing in Manhattan is recommended. The experts at New York Wood Flooring can bring your old hardwood floors back to life.

Alves to leave FC Barcelona

Filed under: Uncategorized — Admin @ 3:56 pm, September 3, 2021.

Saturday, June 4, 2016

On Thursday, FC Barcelona technical secretary Robert Fernández announced Brazillian football defender Dani Alves would leave the club this summer as a free agent.

Alves spent eight seasons with the Catalonians when the club signed him from Sevilla FC. Making his debut for Barça in 2008, Alves played 391 matches and he played the second most games of any foreign player in the Catalan jersey after Lionel Messi. In his last league appearance for Barça, he provided an assist to Luis Suárez which was Alves’s 100th assist in La Liga.

Alves won 23 trophies with Barclona — six La Liga, four Copa del Rey, four Supercopa de España, three UEFA Champions League, three UEFA Super Cups and three FIFA Club World Cups.

Last season Alves extended his contract, as FC Barcelona had a transfer ban imposed by FIFA. Robert Fernández said in the press conference that Aleix Vidal was signed with awareness of Alves’s possible departure. He also said, “This is personal decision that the club has to accept”.

Alves posted on Instagram saying, “I’m privileged, a hard-working and honourable footballer who’s been lucky enough to wear the shirt of the best club in the world in a wonderful decade for the club thanks to the quality of its players and coaches” ((es))Spanish language: ?Soy un privilegiado, un futbolista trabajador y honrado, a quién la vida le ha permitido vestir la camiseta del mejor club del mundo en una década prodigiosa por la calidad de sus jugadores y entrenadores.

FC Barcelona has invited him to address club supporters at the 2016–17 season start in farewell.

Dungeons & Dragons co-creator Dave Arneson dies

Filed under: Uncategorized — Admin @ 3:36 pm, .

Friday, April 10, 2009

Dave Arneson, co-creator of the first roleplaying game, Dungeons and Dragons, died on Tuesday of cancer, at the age of 61.

A close friend of Arneson, Bob Meyer, reported on April 5 that he had taken a turn for the worse and was admitted to a hospital. Family later confirmed that he was in a facility “where we can focus on keeping him comfortable.” Reported at that time, the doctor indicated that he had days to live.

The Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts and Design in 1984 inducted Arneson into their Hall of Fame. Pyramid Magazine in 1999 named him as one of The Millennium’s Most Influential Persons, “at least in the realm of adventure gaming”.

Arneson started out as a wargamer including naval games. He soon developed some for his personal use due to the major publishers’ slow release of games. With David Wesley and the other members of the Midwest Military Simulation Association, Arneson developed the basis of modern role-playing games with individual miniatures representing one person and having non-military objectives.

Arneson attended the University of Minnesota as a history student. He was a founder, along with Gary Gygax, of the Castle & Crusade Society as a medieval miniature chapter of the International Federation of Wargamers. With Gygax in 1972, he authored Don’t Give Up the Ship!, a naval wargame.

Arneson’s Blackmoor was the first role-playing game, a genre in which players describe their characters in thorough detail and can attempt almost any action the character plausibly could. Ernest Gary Gygax, then a close friend of Arneson, worked with him during 1972–73 to develop the extensive set of rules (in this case three volumes) that such a game requires. This became the first edition of Dungeons & Dragons. With his experience with David Wesley, Arneson tried it with fantasy miniatures free style calling his game, Blackmoor. He then latched on Gygax’s Chainmail miniature game and Fantasy supplement for resolution of battles. He showed Gygax what he was doing. Gygax got involved and started preparing a set of rules to supplement Chainmail. They shopped the game, Dungeons & Dragons, around to various gaming companies but got turned down. Gygax started a business partnership, Tactical Studies Rules, to publish the game in 1974. The game launched a whole new category in gaming.

Although not involved with rulebooks for later editions of D&D, Arneson did create adventure modules for later editions.
