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.
The reality of today's politics ....... The illusion

Sharing this in the #ppc  community because the same effect of URL readability applies on #sponsoredlinks  as well.
“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!

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.
