Articles are a written work published in a print or electronic medium. Articles may be for the purpose of propagating news, research results, academic analysis or debate. Articles are usually on a well-defined topic or topics that are related in some way, such as a factual account of a newsworthy event. The writer of a well-written article is seen as objective and showing all sides to an issue. The sources for a news story should be identified and reliable. The technique of show, don’t tell is applied. For the news story, details and elaboration are evident in the body of the news story and flow smoothly from the lead. Quotes are used to add interest and support to the story. Most news stories are structured using what is call an inverted pyramid. A featured article will follow a format appropriate for its type. In a news story, the introductory paragraph includes the most important facts and answers the questions: who, what, where, when, why and how.

Improve Your Website Conversions For Increased Sales

Website conversions has become a key topic for businesses. Competition is continually on the rise, and at a faster pace than ever. Converting website visitors to leads or sales has increasingly become a problem for many companies. Businesses are spending a lot of energy on search engine optimization (SEO), website marketability, and other inbound marketing strategies in order to drive more free traffic to their website. Consider website conversions are a part of your strategy. Do you want to drive more traffic, or convert the organic traffic your website is already receiving from Google? Trying to gain more traffic is far more costly than making changes to your website to achieve the desired results. By using the results in Google Analytics and Google Search Console, it is possible to affect website conversion changes. It is not a matter of reporting or analysis. Instead, you can examine and interpret multiple data points to see what patterns and trends emerge. Ask yourself these basic questions: How much traffic am I getting to my website?

Businesses are spending a lot of energy on search engine optimization (SEO), website marketability and other inbound marketing strategies in order to drive more free traffic to their website.

What if you no longer had to be pulled into an argument?

Hello My Conscious Friends! Dr. Sarah here, and welcome to video 211. Do you ever find yourself in an argument with someone that needs to be right? Is that more common for you than not? https://youtu.be/f_bTTehJhxw Now when I find myself in a situation like that, instead of going into the argument more with the content of whatever is being said, I tend to move into a space and use that tool, interesting point of view (IPOV). Now this is a tool that allows you to not get engaged in a way that’s heavy. That if you say it to yourself or even say it to the other person, “Wow, that’s just an interesting point of view“, you may find yourself less engaged or less pulled into the situation. And the other person won’t really have anywhere go with it… and even if they gets them upset more, they’re bound to get tired eventually. So use that! Interesting point of view. A Space to BE With Take a moment to tune in and ask yourself the following questions. Are you open to being in an interesting point of view? Did you know that when you use IPOV, you are actively BEing in a space of allowance? What’s holding you back from BEing in a space of IPOV with [...]

Your dentist said you need a Root Canal – Now what?

Nobody looks forward to hearing a dentist say, “you need a root canal.” Fortunately, these days there is little to fear. Whether it’s caused by tooth decay, an unexpected injury, or a dental emergency, when tooth pain comes up, it’s important to address it as soon as possible. By taking immediate steps, you’ll feel better and likely save your tooth. And that means making an appointment with your dentist as soon as you can. After examining you the dentist may say, “you need a root canal.” For some people, those words trigger an “Oh, no” reaction accompanied by a large dose of anxiety and fear. That’s unfortunate, because the idea that root canal treatments are a painful and long process is inaccurate, based on myths that are now long outdated. Good News, Better News In fact, your dentist’s diagnosis should be welcomed because a root canal treatment can correct a gum or root problem that if left untreated could cause loss of teeth. The good news is that modern dental techniques along with significant advances in instrument technology have minimized or completely eliminated the discomfort associated with a root canal procedure: Modern treatments are pain-free and generally require only one [...]

Lean Thinking Will Reveal Some Leadership Lessons from Jazz Musicians

Lean thinking can help you see things from a broader perspective. Lean thinking will help you derive leadership lessons from a Jazz performance. The following are some of the leadership lessons that one could get from Jazz. To many, Jazz and leadership have nothing in common. To the few that can see the broader perspective, they find a lot of lessons to lift from how jazz is played, and how they can be bought into the boardroom. Whether you are an executive at a company, or you are an entrepreneur, there are some important lessons you could take from Jazz players. Taking Risks Playing it safe will never move you forward. If anything, it gets you booed off stage. While everyone else boos a Jazz player who tried to play it safe and it backfired, take a lesson that business is all about taking risks. Many entrepreneurs and executives cringe at the thought of taking massive risks in today’s volatile economy. Businesses grow when they are able to overcome risks and perform in the face of adversity. Listen You learn more by listening to those around you than by playing yourself. Jazz players have spent hours listening to their tutors [...]

What heavy pattern has a hold on you?

Hello My Conscious Friends! Dr. Sarah, here. And welcome to video 210. Now, this topic of a pattern.   https://youtu.be/Ay2GCSd-Ejo The last video I did was on patterns. So if you didn’t get a chance to check it out, be sure to do it, because it does explain what a pattern is and some ways that it can show up in your life. Now today what we’re gonna do is focus in on a pattern that you’re aware of, that’s in your life, that not serving you, that’s not working for you, that may be really heavy for you. Guided Exercise: So, what I’m gonna have you do is close your eyes and bring your attention to your breathing. Now, tune in to a pattern that is heavy for you. It could be a pattern in a relationship. It could be a pattern that you have with you. It could be a pattern that you have with anything that’s not working for you, that may be heavy for you. So, tune in now to the content of this pattern. What do you notice? What are you aware of? What are the heavy thought, feelings, and emotions that are comprised of it, and just allow that energy to come up now, and be present with you. And now, [...]

New 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe to arrive in late 2019

The latest offering will combine looks with versatility Mercedes-Benz touted the original CLA an “instant classic” when it first launched but admits that the new model — expected to be available for purchase towards the end of this calendar year — offers even more enhanced design and “supercharged intelligence.” The carmaker has attained addition from subtraction, simplifying lines without changing the overall style of what has become one of its most popular vehicles. One long, fluid line reaches the front of the hood and extends over frameless doors, to the tail. On the inside, the dashboard resembles a wing shape that showcases the amount of technology that will help define this coupe. Mercedes-Benz wants users to know about the Mercedes-Benz User Experience, or MBUX. The technology allows the driver and/or passengers to communicate with the vehicle by way of voice commands, which can begin with a straightforward “Hey Mercedes.” Hand gestures will play a big role, with the vehicle tech even figuring out whether gestures are made by the driver or front-seat passenger. Moving a hand in the dark will prompt a light to go on, for example. The up-and-coming CLA Coupe offers ‘brilliance in every curve’ When the 2020 [...]

One Bad Month in a Great 2018: Can Lean Thinking Help U.S Manufacturing Have a Better 2019?

The American technology manufacturing sector seemed not to have much to smile about after the release of orders volume data for December 2018 by the Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT). The data revealed that total orders in the sector had modestly reduced year-over-year. 2018 had been a strong year though. December results were just a small blemish on what would have otherwise been a perfect year for the sector. Numbers for all the other months have also been released and they look impressive. Orders in the technology manufacturing sector summed up to $443 million in December 2018. This was a 2 percent decrease from November orders. However, the orders were higher by 6 percent than a similar time in December 2017. The drop was unprecedented, as the orders have always been expected to rise. For the 23 years that the data has been released, a drop in December’s numbers from those of November has only been recorded 4 times. Not Enough Lean Thinking? The drop was unexpected, given that the rest of the year had been impressive. The AMT attributed the drop partly to the government shutdown and the U.S-China trade war. Could lean thinking and proper planning have been [...]
