first_imgWashington: US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the recent arrest of a woman who allegedly breached security at President Donald Trump’s private Florida club while carrying Chinese passports and a flash drive containing malware, is an example of the threat Beijing poses to Washington. In a TV interview on Friday, Pompeo declined to provide additional details related to his claim but said: “I think this tells the American people the threat that China poses, the efforts they’re making inside the US, not only against government officials but more broadly.” CNN reported on Wednesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had begun investigating the possibility that the incident at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property was an espionage effort. The US official who confirmed the espionage probe said the FBI is doing what it has to do in these circumstances, when there is a foreign national involved and a possibility of counterintelligence or cyber-security issues. Earlier this week, Trump dismissed concerns about the incident when asked about potential Chinese espionage. Hedescribed it a “fluke situation,” praising both the Secret Service and the receptionist who stopped the accused, Yujing Zhang. Zhang was charged with making false statements to a federal officer and entering a restricted area on Monday. A detention hearing is scheduled for April 8 and arraignment for April 15. While investigators have not yet revealed conclusive evidence suggesting a link to Chinese espionage, the breach has highlighted long-brewing concerns about security at Mar-a-Lago. The club allows members, their guests and people attending events to enter and move around, even as Trump makes frequent visits to the property.last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: A day when noted Bengal mountaineer Dipankar Ghosh went missing while he was coming down after scaling Mount Makalu in Nepal, the state government sent a two-member team to supervise the search operation for Kuntal Karar and Biplab Baidya on Kanchenjunga expedition who were feared dead after rescue operation to bring them down proved futile.”The two-member team comprising an official from the state Youth Affairs department and mountaineer Debdas Adhikary has already reached Kathmandu. They will supervise search operation of Kuntal, Biplab as well as Dipankar who went missing on Friday,” said Ujjal Ray, a member of the advisory committee of the state Youth Affairs department. As informed to Ray by Seven Summits agency which was overseeing the expedition of Dipankar, the latter had successfully scaled the fifth highest peak of the world but while descending to the base camp went missing. Mingma Sherpa who was with Ghosh claimed that when he was last seen, the mountaineer was fit and was instructing him to help another Indian team after an Indian member in the expedition died due to weather conditions. Indian Army officer Narayan Singh had died at camp four on Thursday night while climbing down from the 8485-metre peak. Singh had joined the Army in 2002 and hailed from Pithoragarh in Uttarakhand. He is survived by his wife and three young children. According to sources, the expedition lost track of Ghosh after he failed to reach the summit camp. The Nepal government has launched search operations to locate Ghosh but adverse weather conditions have become a barrier. Known as one of the most outstanding mountaineers, Dipankar Ghosh has undertaken 47 mountaineering expeditions, including Mount Everest, Mt Lhotse, Mt Kanchenjunga, Mt Annapurna-I, Mt Manaslu, Mt Dhaulagiri, and Mt Cho Oyu. A resident of Bally in Howrah, Dipankar had left his residence on May 8 for the expedition. Mt. Makalu is considered amongst the most dangerous and challenging peaks to summit. It may be mentioned that Ramesh Ray and Rudraprasad Halder who had fallen sick during the Kanchenjanga expedition were airlifted and brought to the base camp on Thursday afternoon.last_img read more

WESTERN CONFERENCE1. Los Angeles LakersThe defending world champions added Ron Artest into the starting lineup, and center Andrew Bynum will return soon from an Achilles injury. But the Lakers have been sluggish closing out the season, and Kobe Bryant has been banged up for most of the season. With many potentially dangerous roadblocks, it will be tough for Los Angeles to reach the NBA Finals for the third straight year. They still have the best chance to do so.2. Dallas MavericksDallas was one of the best teams in the NBA after acquiring guard Caron Butler and center Brendan Haywood from Washington. Even though the Mavs have Jason Kidd and Dirk Nowitzki as the cornerstones of their team, they ended up with the San Antonio Spurs in the first round, a team nobody wants to play in the playoffs. If they get out of the first round, Dallas has a shot at the NBA Finals.3. Phoenix SunsThis Phoenix team is very different from the one from five years ago, but it is still all about the high-tempo offense of Steve Nash and Amar’e Stoudemire, a superstar duo. But their flash has not yielded great playoff success, as the Suns have given up the most points of any playoff team. If Nash and Stoudemire stay hot, the Suns can make a lot of noise in the later rounds out West.4. Denver NuggetsCarmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups remain one of the best duos out West, and Denver’s forwards are excellent rebounders. But they have struggled as coach George Karl has undergone treatment for throat cancer, and the Nuggets’ road record is one of the worst among playoff teams. With Karl most likely out for the first round, Denver will need to dig deep against Utah. If they do, they can get a rematch with the Lakers.5. Utah JazzA team stacked with big men, the sky is the limit for the Jazz. With the leadership and playmaking abilities of point guard Deron Williams, the Jazz have big men and 3-point shooters. What they lack is a pure shooter who can hit the mid-range jump shot on a regular basis when Williams gets in trouble and cannot dish it off to one of his big men.6. Portland Trail BlazersA young team on the rise, the Blazers have nothing to lose and everything to gain from this experience. Unfortunately, they will be without All-star and leader Brandon Roy in the first series due to a torn meniscus in his right knee that needs surgery. An injury plagued season, first losing Greg Oden and now Roy, they hope to upset the Phoenix Suns in the first round.7. San Antonio SpursExperience, experience, experience. That’s what the Spurs have, but maybe too much experience. With the great Tim Duncan, age might hinder the Spurs’ run if he cannot carry the team on his back like he did in his wonder years. This is where they hope superstar sixth man Manu Ginobili can keep up his hot streak and lead the team to another title. With the off-season acquisition of Richard Jefferson and the solid point guard play of Tony Parker, the Spurs are still a team to reckon with in the playoffs.8. Oklahoma City ThunderThough it’s the Thunder’s first playoff appearance since moving to OKC, scoring champion Kevin Durant hopes to not make it a short tenure. Even though they are young and hungry, they lack size and 3-point shooters. To top it off, they are matched up with last year’s NBA Champion Lakers in the first round. But gaining experience and seeing how far they can make it will only better the young squad for future seasons to come.-Tim Bielik and Michael WillisEASTERN CONFERENCE1. Cleveland CavaliersLeBron James. Enough said. Aside from showcasing arguably the best player in the league, the Cavs are second in 3-point percentage and third in overall field goal percentage, making them one of the most potent offenses in all of basketball. While there don’t seem to be many soft spots in Cleveland’s game, center Shaquille O’Neal has not seen action since suffering a thumb injury in late February, which could cause a weakened post presence. Finishing four games better than the defending champion Lakers, it is hard to not have Cleveland as a favorite to win the east if not the whole thing.2. Orlando Magic The Magic have one of the best big men in the game in Dwight Howard, who proved to be too much for anyone else in the east to handle last postseason, including Cleveland, and could provide Orlando with a slight edge in the east once again. Orlando has been inconsistent at times this season. Both Vince Carter and Rashard Lewis have struggled at points, which could spell disaster in crunch time. If Carter and Lewis can find their shooter’s touch and Howard maintains his dominating presence in the post, the Magic could give the Cavs a run for their money come conference finals time.3. Atlanta HawksIn his first year in Atlanta, sharp shooter Jamal Crawford has been a huge boost off the bench for the Hawks, providing what could be just the spark they need to get over the hump in the east. Mustering just one playoff series victory in the last 10 years, the Hawks lack the postseason experience that the other top tier teams will benefit from. Atlanta has come a long way in the last 3 years, but they will have to come much further, much quicker if they want to get past Orlando and Cleveland.4. Boston CelticsThe nod for most experienced team in the east would have to go to the Celtics whose starting five that won the NBA title in ’08 remains intact. Boston struggled down the stretch, posting a 3-7 record over their last ten games, and age remains a factor with the ‘Big 3′ all approaching their mid 30’s. The Celtics shined in ’08 but, despite the starting line-up remaining the same, their lack of youth is a big challenge in challenging for the Eastern Conference title. 5. Miami HeatOn a hot streak, winning 12 of its last 13 games, and guard Dwayne Wade has the ability to take over a game. Not much talent behind Wade, especially in the front court. Miami was 0-3 against Boston in the regular season. Although the Heat has the best chance at an upset in the East going against the aging Celtics, Miami’s weak front court will not be able to handle Boston’s big men. 6. Milwaukee BucksMidseason acquisition John Salmons has averaged 19.9 points per game since joining the Bucks, and point guard Brandon Jennings is a contender for Rookie of the Year. Milwaukee lost its best player, forward Andrew Bogut, to injury near the end of the season. Can others step up?With Bogut, the Bucks could have made a deep run in the playoffs. Without him, they will be lucky to win two games against Atlanta. 7. Charlotte BobcatsBobcats are very good defensively, allowing the fewest points in the NBA at 93.8 per game. Guard Stephen Jackson can score from anywhere. Charlotte has also scored the fewest points of any team at 95.3 per game. The Bobcats have no answer for Orlando’s Dwight Howard in the post, especially if Tyson Chandler’s recent injuries linger. Charlotte’s defense will keep them in games, but the team lacks the inside presence to win more than a few games against the Magic. 8. Chicago BullsDerrick Rose is an explosive point guard and averaged 17 points and 9.3 assists against Cleveland this season. The Bulls allowed more points than they scored this season. They simply don’t have the talent to give the Cavs much of a problem. Although the Bulls split the season series against Cleveland, the most recent victory came with LeBron James on the sideline. James will not be resting during the playoffs. -Travis Kozek and Matt Skrajner read more

Rethinking keyword researchSome might argue that keyword research is a dying art, but it’s only become a more sophisticated one. According to Google’s research, roughly 70 percent of the engine’s searches are for synonyms of keywords — not exact keywords — that Google must identify and understand to direct the user to the right place.As a result, Google is now focusing more on intent of the user versus the specific keywords used, turning search into more of a conversation than ever before. For enterprise companies, this means that your SEO experts need to work more closely with the editorial board to develop important topics and themes that are relevant to your audience’s interests, while also looking for ways to create content that’s inclusive of all the different things they might be searching for.2. Adopting new rules for contentDeveloping content for SEO may feel like old hat for your content team, which is why it’s important to bring them up to date on Google’s changing expectations for optimal content. Searchmetrics has identified a number of content factors that affect rank in 2015, including word count, how keywords are distributed, internal links and the use of header and meta-tags.Take a look at Searchmetric’s infographic about the factors (or put someone in charge of reading the full report and presenting the key elements to your content team).3. Embracing the user experience (UX) imperativeUser experience (UX) is another major area that’s influencing search. Cross platform compatibility and site speed have both been shown to affect search rank, but your enterprise teams will also have to pay attention to more nuanced UX variables, like proper content structure and useful internal linking.In the past, optimizing for the search engines and optimizing for website users were sometimes conflicting goals, but Google has moved more toward bridging that gap. Encouraging your teams to evaluate all factors that influence how easily users interact with your website and content will be valuable for both.Related: 5 Must-Use Google Analytics Strategies to Measure SEO Success4. Getting proactive about public relationsLink building strategies — such as listing your site on web directories, posting links on low quality Web 2.0 sites, and leaving links in forum comments — no longer help rank, and can actually cause penalties in Google search. That said, the value of legitimate, high quality citations and mentions is higher than ever before. That’s why it’s important to have at least a few people on your team who are regularly reaching out to publishers and influencers in your industry, building relationships and earning high-quality links through valuable mentions and citations on their platforms.According to data from Moz and BuzzSumo, well-researched content, opinion-informing journalism, long form content, list posts and “Why” posts are all likely to garner a large number of natural citations, as well as social shares.5. Going local  Even if your business operates at the national or international level, the biggest mistake an enterprise company can make is to ignore the importance of local search optimization. According to seoClarity’s research, local search results rank number one 93 percent of the time, compared to 25 percent of the time in older analyzes. So if your business has no local presence, it’s increasingly likely it won’t rank high in search results.Having someone in charge of developing and maintaining a local search presence gives enterprise companies a valuable edge. Specifically, assign someone — internally or externally — to update and maintain local listings on your website and on third party platforms such as social media or review sites.  6. Building a social media empireBuilding a social presence has been considered an essential marketing strategy for a while now, but new research from Searchmetrics has shown that Google is now taking social signals (shares, tweets, +1s, etc.) into consideration for search ranks as well. In fact, they found that the number of social signals on Facebook, Google+, Twitter and Pinterest all correlated with higher rank position in Google.For enterprise businesses, this means that building a social media empire across relevant platforms and assigning a team to promote and engage is more important than ever before — not only for building brand awareness, but for remaining competitive in search.As 2016 looms nearer, new data will continue to shed light on which SEO factors your business should focus on. The most important thing you can do is to keep up with this research and actively disseminate new knowledge to important team members throughout your company.How else are you preparing your enterprise-level SEO strategy for 2016?

first_img MOSCOW — After each of their friends tied the knot and wound up getting married, two men were left standing and single as ever. But rather than take the leap of matrimonial faith themselves, the two Americans – who’ve been friends for 15 years – booked a ‘homiemoon’ to Thailand to celebrate their bachelor lifestyles.What followed was an outpouring of love and laughs on social media, not to mention a possible new niche market in the travel industry. One of the men, who goes by ‘ignoreeverythingido’ on Imgur, documented the trip with photos that spoof the famous ‘Follow Me To’ travel pics by Murad Osmann and Natalia Zakharova.Murad and Natalia’s photos have inspired countless copycats who are in love and travel the world. But these ‘homiemoon’ pics are by far the funniest for putting a jokingly romantic twist on an otherwise heterosexual bromance.
