Donald Trump suggests to “Disrupt” Hurricanes With Nukes before landfall

Donald Trump's new USMCA - Trade deal between the US, Canada and Mexico

I can’t think that I’m typing this phrase: it seems that President Donald Trump actually suggested dropping a nuclear bomb into a hurricane to prevent the natural disaster. What’s worse is that numerous times he proposed this.

I don’t want you to believe that I’m exaggerating what Axios is reporting, so let’s go to the video of an undated hurricane briefing: Trump said, “I received it during a White House hurricane briefing. I’ve got that. Why are we not nuking them?”According to one source there. “They begin to form off Africa’s shore as they move across the Atlantic, we throw a bomb into the hurricane’s eye and it disrupts it. Why are we not able to do that?”The source added, paraphrasing the comments of the president.

In reply, Axios revealed that the individual was basically telling the president that as a chance they would explore it. But it wasn’t Trump! “Trump answered by unbelievably requesting how many hurricanes the U.S. could manage and reiterating his proposal that the state intervenes before landfall,” noted Axios.

Like me, at the stupidity shown, the individuals in the session were floored. Axios reported being knocked back on his heels by the individual briefing the president. … In that session, you could hear a gnat fart. People have been amazed. We believed after the meeting was over,’ What the f—? What are we going to do with this? There’s more to discuss despite this enchanting picture. In 2017, a memo from the National Security Council details a second discussion about the president requesting how to “bomb the hurricanes.” This time, the memo fails to mention a nuclear bomb (which Axios is trying to frame a favorable thing).

The White House informed Axios that there would be no debate between the NSC and Trump on “personal debates.” Another source attempted to put a favorable spin on Trump’s bombing remarks to Axios: “His objective of preventing a catastrophic hurricane from hitting the continent is not good. His goal isn’t bad. “Hurricane season goes on until the end of November, so I’m happy (I’m not) to see it raised again!

A website is the marketing tool for an online business. Good websites must be attractive and be able to grab the attention of a large number of visitors.

Good web designing is an art that requires knowledge of programming and how your visitor will interact with the website. So make the website user friendly but most importantly make it so that search engines can find you organically. After all, your goal is to compete against the first 10 competitors for your keyword and search engine optimization is how to do this.

The most important rule I follow for a website is the KISS formula. Keep It Simple Silly. Do not lose your visitor with a whole lot of fancy stuff if you want them to find your product or message.

1 – Purpose of Website:

What do you want your website to do for you? Design the website according to this question. If all you want is a simple squeeze page then design a simple squeeze page. If you want to convey information then keep it simple and convey that information. Fancy graphics and other distractions are not conveying what you want to your visitor.

2. Design for Website Pages:

Planning the web design. Planning on a piece of paper what you want on the web page is important. Doing simple research on other websites on the materials you want to convey to your visitor will give you a feel for how to design your site. If you need any professional support to make your website design more professional and user friendly try to reach out web design companies, if you have business in Dubai and want to design your website try to hire best web design company Dubai which has positive reviews and feedbacks. that will surely provides you the best solution for your website design.

3. Attractive Theme:

Planning your theme and layout for each page is important. Look at your competitors and see if you find their theme attractive. Incorporate ideas from those sites that you know will attract your visitor. Design those ideas into your website.

4. Website Navgation

Navigating around your site requires a site map. Remember it is important that your visitor can easily navigate around your site. Implement normal links for moving around and place those links together like an index for your site. It is important that your visitor does not get frustrated while navigating around your site as they will leave or click away.

5. Website Page Load:

Download time is important. It gets frustrating to the majority visitors if they have to wait for a page to download. Over use of graphics and images will increase download time. Ideally a complete page should not exceed 30KB. This ensures that most visitors will see your whole page in about 2 to 5 seconds at the most.

6. Avoid linking other sites:

Do not allow your visitor the opportunity to click away on a link on your web site that leaves your domain. It has been proven that you generally have lost that visitor and a potential customer.

Remember it is about presenting the information in an elegant, decorative, user friendly and timely manner. So consider the above tips when designing a website in the future.

Why Asia Remains an Attractive Investment Destination for Billionaire Investors Like James Richman

Billionaires Investing in Asia - James Richman

Asia is the world’s largest and most densely populated continent. 

Many economies in Asia can be characterized as underprivileged and weak, while some economies are usually included in the most developed lists. 

While Asia has Japan and Singapore, some of the most developed countries in the world, it also has Afghanistan, Nepal, Laos, the Philippines, and Pakistan – some of the least developed countries in the world.

Despite Asia’s roller coaster of conditions in its countries’ economies, billionaire investor James Richman reportedly loves the continent and continues to increase his investments in the region

Investing in promising technologies and countries

Richman is no stranger to an underprivileged environment. Born in a small town called Smarde of Tukums region in the post-Soviet country of Latvia, he is familiar with poor economies and faulty systems.

Having previously gotten married at a young age, the future finance tycoon initially had to work as a manual laborer to provide for his family. However, the young couple underwent an unfortunate event when his only daughter had to be taken to the hospital. While the toddler’s condition is generally curable, the health care system in his home country had many flaws that made the whole experience difficult for the young family. 

The health care system in their area was flawed for many reasons – it had budget constraints, lacked enough medical workers, and had limited coverage. Left with no choice, James had to mortgage his house to make enough money for his daughter’s medical fees. 

Alas, despite his hard work and efforts, his daughter still did not make it. This affected James’s marriage with his then wife. It eventually led to their divorce.

At that moment, people close to the billionaire shared that James was left without a home, a child, and a partner. Such unfortunate experiences helped shape his compassion for developing countries and partly could be attributed as to why he invests in socially impactful projects. 

Leading the development era 

Since James Richman had firsthand experience in living in an impoverished and partly developed country, he knew what it was like to live in a world full of scarcity and shortage. 

In fact, Asia has several countries that are already considered rich and developed not only in culture, but also in resources such as Thailand, Philippines, South Korea, among others.

According to a report from World Atlas, Macau, Qatar, and Singapore rank as the three wealthiest nations in Asia. The GDP per capita in US Dollars for these countries are as follows: 73,187.0 for Macau SAR, China; 59,330.9 for Qatar; and 52,960.7 for Singapore.

Macau is an independent region of East Asia, whose economy is mainly tourism-based. According to the said report, the most profitable economic sectors of Macau are export-oriented manufacturing of textiles and garments and financial services such as banking. Moreover, it has stable trade relations with more than 120 countries and regions of the world.

Located in the Arabian Peninsula’s northeastern coast and West of Asia, Qatar is the second richest country between Asia and the Middle East. Its economy is based on the export of petroleum and liquefied natural gas. The country’s reserve for oil was able to sustain the economy for 23 years as of the report’s writing.

The third richest Asian nation according to the report is Singapore which has a developed and trade-oriented market economy. It has one of the most business-friendly economies in the world which attracts many global investors.

Apart from the three countries, the report further reveals that other 7 richest nations in Asia which are Hong Kong, Japan, United Arab Emirates, Israel, Korea, Brunei Darussalam, and Bahrain.

Asian hospitality

While hasty generalization is not a good practice to carry around, it is safe to say that many Asians are hospitable, friendly, and very approachable, which is probably why the finance tycoon James Richman appreciates not only their economies, but their people as well.

An example of Asians’ approachability is how the Japanese would carry smiles on their faces as they go out of their way to help a lost tourist find their next destination or a lost child find his parents. 

Most times, when a foreigner would enter a store to ask one of its workers for directions, the worker would happily go out of their way, step out of the store, and point to the proper directions as thoroughly as they can.

Being hospitable is yet another trait that is common in most Asians. For example, when a visitor comes by in a Filipino household, the host makes sure to prepare a dish or a snack for the guest and make him or her feel as welcome as possible. Full of warmth and generosity, Filipinos would receive guests, even strangers, in a very pleasant way. 

Asian attractions

It is almost impossible to talk about Asia without mentioning its beautiful sites and attractions. 

The famous and charming Mount Everest in Nepal is probably one of the most well-known attractions not only in Asia but also in the world. Tourists are left breathless upon seeing the picturesque mountain, not to mention it is the tallest mountain in the world above sea level.

Sumbawa Island in Indonesia is another beautiful destination that can catch anyone’s attention. Remote and tranquil, Sumbawa Island is usually untouched by the common tourist. It has white sandy beaches and beautiful diving destinations for avid surfers.

Asian attractions are not limited to natural wonders. Man-made creations like the Taj Mahal in India and the Angkor Wat in Cambodia are only some of the many eye-catching and stunning attractions loved not only by tourists but also by locals.

With all these beautiful and eye-catching views, it comes as no surprise that James Richman sees vast potential in Asia. While the continent still has a lot to improve on, it will one day catch up with its Western counterparts — perhaps supersede them. In the same way that he was sort of a late bloomer in his childhood years, but eventually grew to become a massive success.

Apple Has Lost $450 Billion of Revenue Since October 2018!

Apple Has Lost $450 Billion of Revenue Since October 2018!

Just about three months ago, the California tech-giant was enjoying a smooth ride with profits coming in, constantly; considering the fact that it was also the most valued company on the planet, last year. But since October 2018, the freefall of its revenues has generated a lot of ‘negative buzz’ among the analysts, the investors, the consumers, and also those who are the admirers of Apple Inc. in one or the other ways.

Apple has so far lost $450 billion of revenue since October, which is more than even the ‘overall value of social networking giant Facebook’. The total value of Facebook is about $383.76 billion. Well, FB’s total worth is also more than the total GDP of some countries like Iran, Norway, and Austria!

Now, you can imagine how big the loss is for Apple, even taking into account that it’s still got a lot of money and will probably make up for the losses very soon.

On Thursday, the iPhone maker’s stocks fell by 9.96%.

Way back, three months ago, on October 3rd, 2018, when Apple hit a peak of $232.07 per share, it gained a market cap of $1.16 trillion. But now, it just dropped to a low of about $142.19 per share (new results may vary from the article’s figures), clearing out a massive amount of $450 billion from its revenue. And on Thursday, January 3rd, Apple’s market cap was standing at $710.97 billion, as per the reports of Macrotrends.

And now Apple has also lost its position as world’s third most valuable company to Google’s Alphabet.

Apple has been struggling to maintain its aura for a while now and many experts are saying that to boost the revenues further and by a large number, Apple should also try to enter the budget-flagship or budget range of smartphones, as per the current trend. But that, for now, seems unlikely since Apple is a luxury phone making brand and always keeps the priority very high for the value of its products.

But it needs to understand the changing scenario in the markets currently, across the globe. If it keeps going like this then brands like OnePlus and Xiaomi will eventually end up becoming the true ‘smartphone profit makers’.

It looks like a state of a ‘slight’ emergency for Tim Cook and his team to sustain the company’s growth, just like it was moving three months ago.

Even the famous tech YouTube channel Unbox Therapy also came up with a video recently, discussing how Apple should move ahead if it has to live up to the fast-growing trends. Lewis Hilsenteger, who runs the channel, also talked about Apple’s recent decision to make the iPhones in India, in 2019.

Facebook tells about how it ‘reviews the content’ after New York Times’s claims of it having ‘errors and biases’

After the claims made by New York Times in its report about Facebook that some of its rulebooks have ‘numerous gaps, biases and outright errors’, the social networking giant has come forward in its defense through a blog post, by clarifying that its methods and policies for reviewing and moderating content on the site are not ‘secret’, and are ‘carefully considered’.

NYT has claimed to have accessed around 1,400 pages from the rulebook used by the moderators for monitoring posts on the social networking platform and tackling issues of extremism, hate, etc in different countries. But as per the article published by NYT, there are highly complex issues, distilled into simple yes-or-no rules, eventually resulting in errors, while moderating the content properly.

The article also cites examples, like the one from India, where moderators were told to take down the comments which were critical of religion in the country. Another one is of Myanmar where a famous extremist group was allowed to stay on the platform for months due to some error in paperwork. And this error was admitted by Facebook.

The NYT article read:

“The Facebook employees who meet to set the guidelines, mostly young engineers and lawyers, try to distill highly complex issues into simple yes-or-no rules.”

“Those moderators, at times relying on Google Translate, have mere seconds to recall countless rules and apply them to the hundreds of posts that dash across their screens each day,” it further added.

The article says that the rules for what the 2 billion users should be allowed to say on the platform are discussed ‘over breakfast’, every Tuesday morning, and are then circulated to over 7,500 moderators globally.

In response to this, Facebook, in its blog post, said that its gathering ‘over the breakfast’ is, in fact, a global forum, being attended by experts from across the globe, having deep knowledge of relevant laws, online safety, counter-terrorism, operations, public policy, communications, product, and diversity. It also said that the meeting also includes human rights experts.

Facebook also told that it has around 15,000 content reviewers around the world, and they are supplied with training and supporting resources, rather than being relied upon Google Translate. According to the social networking giant, it reviews the content in more than 50 languages.
