32 Photos Of Aircrafts Built For Utter Annihilation!

If you’ve ever been to an air show that featured a fighter jet, I think you’ll appreciate this roundup.

Few things are more impressive to witness live then watching a jet perform. The noise and the maneuvers are incredibly impressive to witness. Then you take a look at some of the facts and your mind gets blown.

  • The F-15 can fly at mach-2, or 1,900 mp/h.
  • In 1975, the F-15 went from standstill to an altitude of 100,000 feet in under 3 minutes and a half minutes.
  • The M-61 Vulcan, an onboard cannon on many warplanes, can fire up to 6,600 round per minute.
  • The F-15 can fly with only one wing.
  • In 1956, an F11 fighter shot itself because it was faster than the bullet.
  • The Lockhead SR-71 Blackbird is so fast that its designers didn’t even consider avasive manuevers, but rather instructed pilots to accelerate away from missiles.

The price tag that accompanies some of the air crafts are also staggering. 5 most expensive military planes are:

  1. VH-71 Kestrel: $241 million
  2. P-8A Poseidon: $290 million
  3. C17A Globemaster III: $328 million
  4. F-22 Raptor: $350 million
  5. B-2 Spirit: $2.4 billion

Any way you look at it, these machines are incredible. The aesthetics are pretty cool too, as seen below. Enjoy!

23 NFL Catches That Will Make Your Jaw Hit The Floor

The NFL is arguably the greatest sports league in the world. The league has the most valuable sports franchise is the Dallas Cowboys, they unofficially own a day of the week, and they have a ridiculous following.

In the fall of 2015, 26 of the top 27 tv programs were NFL games (the republican primary debate owns the number 13 spot.) NFL of Fox averages 26.8 million viewers during their 4:25 ET Sunday games.

In summary, NFL football is huge. A massive part of the game, and my personal favourite, is the role of the receiver. Few plays fire a fan up more than an outstanding catch, whether it be by a receiver or a player of a different position.

Have a look below for 23 jaw dropping catches!

Odell Beckham Jr. is the best, but as you can see, there’s no shortage of talent in the NFL.

I hope that you’re enjoying the season so far, and all the spectacular plays that come with it!

Optimizing For The New Millennium: Core Internet Marketing Techniques

The internet has become a global phenomenon and barring cataclysm will continue to increase in size, influence, and utility. As a result, there are constant changes which at one time recommend a certain marketing technique, and at others make that same technique anathema.

For example, when search engines were burgeoning, a common practice known as “keyword stuffing” was used to increase the SERP-ranking of a given company’s web page. SERP is short for Search Engine Results Page. Approximately ninety percent of clicks happen on the first SERP and stuffing your content with keywords used to get you there. But as a result, many “automated” content articles were “spun”, and soon the first results on a SERP weren’t anything near what a user was actually looking for. So search engines optimized and created their own automated programs to detect keyword stuffing and prevent those results from showing up in the main SERPs.

Once stuffing was en vogue, today it’s a very bad choice that will virtually eliminate any possibility of ROI (Return On Investment). Understanding these marketing trends is key to remaining competitive, and often requires utilization of a trustworthy content creation agency. Web Design, Search Engine Optimization (or SEO), Social Media, and Content Creation are four of the most recommendable ways to increase your online presence, and you should find an agency who understands all four intimately.

Web Design

web-design
Older web designs would often have three-dimensional graphics and a cavalcade of flashy colors. Most of this flamboyant, visually uncomfortable style came from the excitement of exploring a new information medium. But as the internet has developed and professionalized, such styles are no longer appreciable and could decrease the credibility of your business’s website.

Additionally, the styles of today will be as outmoded ten years from now. Again, an agency is an integral, effective way of ensuring the appearance of your business’s internet branch is continuously effective and will keep drawing in new clients.

SEO

seo
Search Engine Optimization will ensure that your content has been engineered to obtain the most views, and reach the broadest audience. Keywords are used proportionately, and effectively. SEO also refers to things like subject matter, outbound/inbound links, and pictures or video.

The right balance of these definitely requires a professional agency. Not only is development an issue, but continuing the quality of that development over time is integral to increasing ROI-yield.

Social Media

social-media
There’s no denying it: social media is huge right now. Twitter, Gmail, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn—there are so many more. Conducting a marketing campaign across all these social media arenas simultaneously can be time-consuming.

Ensuring that this campaign is productive is equally time-consuming, and requires a kind of temporal deposit. Momentum requires building, but viral instances of rapid spread can also be facilitated by the right agency.

Content Creation

SEO, Web Design, and Social Media optimization are nothing without the content which is used to intrigue potential clients. Content should be of that evergreen variety which is continuously useful even years down the line. It should also be readable, and not feel spun. Something to look for among content writers is latent semantic indexing; this ensures content is good for search engines and readers. Again, this requires time and professionalism.

Finding The Right Agency To Help Spread Your Business’s Web Presence
Organizations like this Portland web design company excel at building brand awareness. Since people are using the internet as a primary means of education, entertainment, and occupation today, meeting them where they spend their greatest amount of time is fundamental. To ensure ROI, look for agencies that offer optimization in content creation, web design, social media outreach, and SEO.

Why Luck is No Coincidence in Business

Running a successful business in this day and age is ordinarily a challenging affair. With competition so high in most sectors, you have to not only be ahead of the game but always on the ball and working with a loyal and committed team behind you.

Someone who has a lucky career may have been in the right place at the right time, but with no doubt will have had to work hard to reach their position. While some careers may land in the laps of those fortunate ones, most of us have to seize opportunities and be extremely proactive in our thinking and networking. A successful career can also depend very much on an individual character. A successful high-earning sales rep has to be friendly, confident and very knowledgeable about their business. Perhaps a somewhat more relaxed or quieter person would not have as much success. We are all suited to some careers more than others.

financial-results

Financial Results

Financial success in business usually only comes with perseverance in targets, creating and testing formulas and strategies to see what works. The first few years of a new business can be a financial struggle and in most cases, an enormous amount of work needs to be done before you are really seeing the financial benefits and results. With most new businesses, set-up costs can be a drain on money and company owners often need to take economic risks to employ the right professionals to support the business and do the job. In established companies that are already thriving, new brands, products or services that are being introduced will always need an injection of cash, and / or new employees to fulfill the roles.

richard-branson

Can Luck Play a Part in Accomplishing Success?

One of the most well-known entrepreneurs in business is Richard Branson. In his book “The Virgin Way: Everything I know about leadership”, he states; “Those people and businesses that are generally considered fortunate or luckier than others are usually also the ones that are prepared to take the greatest risks and, by association, are also prepared to fall flat on their faces every so often”. Richard believes that if a business plays it safe and does not take risks, they will usually not be as successful as a business that does take chances. Of course, this comes with potential dangers, but any business will learn from taking a gamble and would usually not make repetitive mistakes. Risk taking is in a sense trying your luck, and therefore increasing your opportunity and success for fortuity.

Do You Count Yourself Lucky?

In our personal lives, to a certain extent, we control our destiny. If we do not buy a lottery ticket, we will not have the chance to win. If we do not apply for the job that we desire, we will not succeed in getting it. Some of us still believe in creating our own luck by crossing fingers, picking up a penny, searching for four leaf clovers or persevering in positive thinking. Most of us may think that luck is more destined than created but perhaps we are wrong. We all make decisions to try to achieve what we want to accomplish, always based on the hope that we may triumph in our efforts.

The same theory should apply to business. If you want your business to be a success, then you have to look at the long-term goals and create a multitude of stepping stones along the way to achieve them. Business plans, forecasting, marketing strategies, resources and industry expertise are all essentials to reach your targets. Luck may play a part in terms of timing but it is no coincidence in business. Taking positive action to drive your business forward, will bring in an effective force that should determine excellent results.

Continuing Success With A Little Help From Technology

If you’re an SME and you’re older than five years then congratulations are in order. About half of small businesses don’t last this long. But, as you’ll have already learned by now, standing still isn’t an option. Pat yourself on the back if you like, but don’t reach for the pipe and slippers just yet, there’s still plenty to do before you can consider yourself a big success.

Taking the next step is tricky. While you clearly want to grow – hire new people, launch new products and services, spend more on marketing – you’ll no doubt be worried about stretching your resources too far.

This is where technology becomes worth its weight in gold. There are hardware and software on the market that will help you make the leap from startup to established success story without breaking the bank…

HR software

Many SMEs have minimal or small scale HR when they first start out yet this is crucial to keeping things on track as you grow. You need HR to manage your team and ensure that you run a happy and efficient ship. Technology means that it is now possible to benefit from a reliable HR system that can handle much of this for you in a simple, efficient and cost-effective way. It’s also possible to use cloud technology to storage and manage your files in a manner that doesn’t leave you drowning under a mountain of printed documents or going shopping for filing cabinets galore.

Project management

Handling more and more orders from an increasing number of clients? Perhaps you’ve got increasing numbers of staff working on ever-complex projects? It can be tricky to ensure that you keep up with the pace of running a successful and growing business. That’s where project management systems can come in – helping you to allocate tasks, properly plan your work and produce things such as Gantt charts.

Meetings

Travel is an expensive drain for any business. The cost of fuel or public transport tickets is not insignificant and, added to productivity issues with the amount of time spent out of the office, it can be a big headache as you try to get out to meetings with clients and attend pitches to prospective new clients. Video call facilities, such as Google Hangout, have vastly improved the way conferencing can be carried out online and now mean that you avoid travel for all, bar the essential meetings and slash the time and money that you waste on travel.

Web hosting

Did you launch your business with a basic WordPress website? Maybe you don’t even have one? A sixth of SMEs have no website at all even in an age where digital technology is so widespread. It’s now time to launch or upgrade your site. Whether you want a fully-operational e-commerce site or the slickest shop window you can afford, it’s well worth getting this up to scratch. A good site with well-written content – maybe even a regular blog – with help you to be as visible as possible, putting you in front of the eyes of more potential customers.

Conclusion

A house isn’t a home if you don’t feel relaxed and aren’t in love with the space you’re in. You can’t always choose the people you’re with, but you can always design your own home OR make alterations to your current place.

Make it into a space that you love!
