Opportunities  - 
 
Hello all. Im looking for some help/advice and was hoping the Group might be able to help. I am a lecturer and Unitec and one of the papers I teach is Digital Marketing. As part of that paper, students participate in the Google Online Marketing Challenge and sit the Google Analytics IQ certification test. I am also going to be adding the AdWords certification test as a formal assessment item.  

My question to the Group is whether there is someone from Google in Aus/NZ with whom I can talk about things like potential guest speakers, possible student projects, and developing a closer relationship between Google and Unitec.  

Thanks in advance for your help!

I can confirm this is indeed true
matching content in titles and meta is given a decently large weighting

"This is water".  Well worth watching, but please allow yourself the luxury of watching to the end without distractions. Who knows, this might even strike a chord with you.  Enjoy, reflect and share!

Great to see people openly talking about thinking outside the square. There are so many 'round peg' people who dont fit the square holes.

Drones delivering pizza.
 
This is absolutely fascinating: Introducing the Domino's DomiCopter!

Remember how we used to joke about pizza delivery using helicopters? Well... it's coming. 

Just replace the manual controller with a fully automated GPS based computer system, and we could have automated drones flying around delivering pizza. The payment would happen online (or via a mobile app).

The guys at Hedgehog bikes are very knowledgeable and very willing to go the extra mile to make sure their customers are satisfied. Very good selection of bikes from BMX to Mountain to Road. Prices are as good as any in NZ.

The food was good but the atmosphere and professionalism of the wait staff was average at best. Don't get me wrong, our waitress was doing her best but it was obvious that she was new to the industry and to the restaurant. The food is very reasonably priced and definitely worth it. If you are looking for a nice place for a romantic dinner, this isnt it. But if you are looking for good thai food at a good price then you wont be disappointed.
