I can't help but liken this to the recent Greek referendum. Its not really democracy when you get to vote yes or no (sorry "no or yes") on a deal that doesn't exist.

“15 SEO Best Practices for Structuring URLs”

It's been a long time since we covered one of the most fundamental building blocks of SEO—the structure of domain names and URLs—and I think it's high time to revisit. But, an important caveat before we begin: the optimal structures and practices I'll be describing in the tips below are NOT absolutely critical on any/every page you create. This list should serve as an "it would be great if we could," not an "if we don't do things this way, 

1: Whenever possible, use a single domain & subdomain
2: The more readable by human beings, the better
3: Keywords in URLs: still a good thing 
4: Multiple URLs serving the same content? Canonicalize 'em!
5: Exclude dynamic parameters when possible
6: Shorter > longer
7: Match URLs to titles most of the time (when it makes sense)
8: Including stop words isn't necessary
9: Remove/control for unwieldy punctuation characters
10: Limit redirection hops to two or fewer
11: Fewer folders is generally better
12: Avoid hashes in URLs that create separate/unique content 
13: Be wary of case sensitivity
14: Hyphens and underscores are preferred word separators
15: Keyword stuffing and repetition are pointless and make your site look spammy

Give Me A Moment, My Car's Just At The...PRINTERS?!?
I absolutely LOVE articles and stories on technical innovation, but I have to admit that this one just blew me away . So would you feel safe in a 'printed car' or is this just one innovation too far? What do you think, please share your view!

While this story may unfortunately be true (see link), I think there is an opportunity to leverage the power of social media against this type of propaganda distribution. 
How? By using social media against its self.
Solution: Social media providers can allow you to opt out of topics or particular genres or other pre-assigned topics that you specifically don't want to see (this is not censorship it is opting out).
How is it controlled? Community and company moderated lists of users, groups, links, content sharing regimes and other triggering characteristics.
If this is executed in an intelligent way the power of social media can be used to rid the web of evil.
I am sure this will be controversial, but thoughts comments and suggestions please ......?

What little faith I had left in the media has pretty much been removed.

 I decided I wanted to actually find the source of the North Korean media rather than the western media's interpretation of things. Not surprisingly the actual official North Korean state media (Japanese domain and hosting) isn't very easily to find and is not directly referenced or linked to by any western media reports as far as I have found (Despite the many "Quotes" and "references").

However, I did find the source, and the North Korean media did in fact refer to President Obama as a Monkey which is highly reprehensible in its own right. What I did find though is that it was published on May 2nd 2014 in response to President Obama's visit to South Korea on April 25th 2014.

It has absolutely nothing to do with the film the Interview as is being claimed in the Media today.

It makes me wonder - are the media completely incompetent and just jump on any story without vetting it first (it seems so) or is there another agenda behind it and they just feel that people won't bother looking for wider perspectives and getting the facts?

I am not defending North Korea by any means, however I think it is reasonable to highlight gross misrepresentation by the media.

Back to my original boycott on the media I think.
Pyongyang, May 2 (KCNA) -- Not a few days have passed since Park Geun Hye took office in Chongwadae in south Korea. Being fascinated by honey-coated "commitments" made by Park early in her office, many people pinned great hope on her. But as months and years passed by, their hope turned into ...

I am very disappointed with my interactions with Bruette Roofing. The original nature of dissatisfaction with this company can be chalked up to lack of communication and a misunderstanding or the expectations of the work to be performed. However my main dissatisfaction with this company is with the way in which they have dealt (or not) with my complaint. The first point of contention was that the roof was obviously sagging. Bruette Roofing had assumed it was so obvious that if I wanted it fixed I would have asked. I asked for the roof to be fixed, or so I had thought. They also told me that they don't quote for things like this as it will add to the price of the quote and they won't win the business. Their terms of contract indicate that additional carpentry work will be billed additionally. I was told there would be some additional boards that needed replacing as they were rotten. I was expecting such additional work and OK'd it immediately. However the sagging roof was not fixed and it was just re-shingled. This could be considered a bad misunderstanding or miscommunication or lack of specificity. My further discontentment with this company stems from how they dealt with this and the fact that some minor damage occurred to the internal ceiling and a light fixture which was knocked out and left live wires exposed. No responsibility was taken for the damage. The main reason I selected Bruetter Roofing over some of the other cheaper quotes was that they were a Better Business Bureau accredited business, they were a local business and they appeared to have experienced and long standing contractors working for them. Incidentally the 2 man crew they provided could not speak English so we were unable to communicate with them. The foreman was onsite for approximately 30 minutes and then left the roofing crew to do the job. I am thoroughly disappointed with Bruette Roofing. They appeared to be the exact opposite of what I experienced. I write negative reviews extremely rarely, hardly ever complain and am very reasonable in resolving any disputes. I feel compelled in this case to write a review on my experiences.

I have purchased a bike from them and had them do work on a couple of my bikes. The staff are friendly and well trained and they are really good value. The store location is good too, right on the gateway trail. Highly recommended!
