How To Prevent And Handle Party Crashers

Published

on

Approach the party crashers politely and calmly: By reacting harshly you could set off a potentially violent incident; it’s always best to remain calm and not lose your cool. Be aware of their demeanor and behavior: Are they friendly and respectful, or intoxicated and aggressive? How they carry and present themselves will be key to your handling of the situation.

Ask them how they heard about your party: The answer to this question can help you to decide whether or not to allow them to stay. Were they invited by another guest? Did they just walk by and come in? This information can also help you to know whether to expect other uninvited guests or a repeat situation later in the night.

Decide if it’s worth it to kick them out: If the party crashers are friendly and you would like them to stay, everybody wins – and you may have made some new friends! It this is the case, welcome them and have a good time, knowing your party is clearly the place to be!

If you would like the party crashers to leave:

Remain calm. As the host and person in charge, it is your duty to keep a level head.

Expect resistance or combative behavior

Explain (politely) to the unwanted guests that this party is by invitation only. They should get the hint.

If all else fails, try this last-resort trick: In some cases, the truth is not always the best policy; One trick that works wonders for clearing out uninvited guests is to tell them that you just got word that the cops have been called and are on their way. This often happens with large parties, usually on behalf of an irritated neighbor or in some cases, even the host’s housemates. After privately telling your close friends and in-control (and invited!) party guests what is going on, make it seem like now that the police are officially involved, the party is over. Have people start shuffling toward the door and appear to be heading out. Most overzealous party crashers do not want to consciously test the limits of the law during their night out, so chances are they will call it a night and leave willingly.

Prevent party crashers from ruining your night by:

Making it clear in the invitation or to your friends whether they may invite others.

If the party crashers seem dangerous or are armed, call the police immediately

Hire some mega- muscle for the night: Professional security guards or bodyguards are trained to deal with these types of situations, and above all else, provide priceless peace of mind that you, your property, and your guests are protected, in the event that your party is so cool it just had to be crashed.

The Best Tips to Avail the Most From Search Engine Optimisation

Published

on

By

It is not difficult to get a listing on the various search engines when your website details are being looked for. The challenge, however, is to achieve top rankings on these search engines. There are certain tricks of the trade that need to be followed in order to get the desired ranking.

So, how does one go about it? Here are a few basic points that you need to incorporate in the making of your website that will help you achieve the desired result.

Avoid purchasing a new domain unless it is necessary to do so

The search engine gives a lot of value to the fact as to how long your website and its domain have been in business. No doubt, there is a way out here according to which you can redirect your old domain to the new one. But your best bet would still remain to stick to your existing website.

If you are for some unavoidable reason forced to start from scratch and use a brand new domain, then you should be prepared to experience some loss in the traffic flow of search engines. This loss of traffic can be for a few weeks or more. It could even go up to few months or more.

Always make sure that your site’s optimisation is done for the users

The optimisation of your website should always be done for the users and not the search engines. This is important because search engines only look for websites based on the key terms which are punched in by users.

Now, if the keywords which are typed in by the users are in anyway related to your website, then these users account for your target audience. Thus, it is important that your site’s optimisation is done keeping users in mind. If you are not clear about who your target audience is then you need find it out as soon as possible.

Do an extensive research about your keyword phrases

There are chances that the keyword which you think your target audience is looking for may be incorrect. There are many research tools which can help you point out the key phrases which can help in your website optimisation.

You can compile a list of the relevant phrases for your website and then can choose a few different ones for each page.

Design and format your website on the basis of your keyword research

It is important that you design and categorise the navigation and architecture of your website on the basis of the keyword research which you have done for your web page.

Equally important is ensuring that your website is crawler-friendly. Thus, it should be well connected with proper links to all its pages. It is also vital is to write a compelling content for the key pages of your website and it should based on the keywords and phrases that you have researched about.

Most importantly, ensure that the website is link worthy and keep yourself and your website updated with the keywords.

50 Popular Beliefs That People Think Are True by Guy P. Harrison

50 Popular Beliefs That People Think Are True

Of course what is implied is that these beliefs are not true, or at least unproven. And as it happens that’s quite right, he sets about dismantling each of these beliefs. Harrison does this by assembling the facts, the evidence, the basis of the story. Where did it come from? Who said this? What evidence is there for this belief? With some beliefs like flying saucers, he is ready to believe, he does not dispute the possibility, but is waiting for reliable evidence, which he shows does not yet exist. Because something is not understood, that does not mean we should believe in some explanation that has no factual basis, like ancient Greeks thinking Zeus was throwing lightning bolts whenever there was a storm.

There are plenty of beliefs to consider. Here’s a list of a dozen.

You’re Either Born Smart Or You’re Not.

Astrology is Scientific

A Psychic Read My Mind

Atlantis is Down There Somewhere

Creationism is True and Evolution is Not

Stories of Past Lives Prove Reincarnation is Real

Ghosts Are Real and They Live in Haunted Houses

UFOs Are Visitors From Other Worlds

Area 51 is Where They Keep the Aliens

My Religion is the One That is True

Global Warming is A Political Issue and Nothing More

Television News Gives Me An Accurate View of the World

Well there are still about 40 more beliefs to be examined.

This is an interesting book, one that you can dip into at any chapter. First he gives a presentation of the belief, and then explains why it is false or unsubstantiated. That is, he gives factual evidence, not opinions.

Yet there is another aspect to this book; someone who believes in Creationism– that the world is only 6,000 years old and was created in six days–is not going to be convinced by any amount of factual information. Their beliefs are not evidence-based, but faith-based. People who believe in many of these beliefs do so not from logical, scientific, reasoned information, they do it from emotional convictions, or accepting the word of some authority. Facts are not going to disturb their beliefs. And yes, they have a perfect right to their beliefs as all of us have.

We can understand that, because most of our beliefs become set with emotion, and once that happens it is hard to shift them. For example, most of us vote for one political party, and will do so all our lives no matter what happens. It is the small number of swinging voters who actually decide who wins elections.

Harrison met a woman in California who carried a sandwich board which proclaimed the world would end on May 21, 2011. She believed that 97% of the world’s population would be destroyed; only the faithful, the chosen, would be taken to heaven. Despite all his arguments, she was utterly convinced of her belief. The Judgement day had been proclaimed by Harold Camping, but when it failed to occur he told his followers, it was an “invisible Judgment Day” and the actual date of destruction had been revised to October 21, 2011. Even after this, many of his followers still believed in his prophecy.

This book is interesting reading, particularly if you are prepared to listen to what is presented. For example, “A Flying Saucer Crashed Near Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947… “ Personally, I have always had doubts about this, possibly it could be right, yep, I saw some blurred photo of a Martian, but was never quite convinced either way. It is nice to get some unbiased information about something that so many people believe in.

Reading this book will expand your understanding of life. It gives you both sides of many issues, and teaches you to consider the facts, the science if there is any, without swallowing some internet story without thought.

Harrison points out that good sceptics don’t accept any wacky claim that comes along without evidence, but neither do they reject wacky claims totally. There is always a door left open, waiting for evidence.

Harrison discusses some of his own experiences, which leads him to understand why people believe things that are not true. He tells of his college days when he lived in an old two-storey house. Often he was alone in the upstairs section, but he would hear creaking noises, as if someone was walking around downstairs. When he investigated, he found nothing. Although he logically came to accept this, his emotions often cried out with fear. So when he hears of people believing that a house is haunted, he feels some sympathy, some understanding.

He makes an interesting point about miracle cures by evangelical preachers when he points out that although there have been many thousands of people who say they are cured from various illnesses, in all history there has never been a case of an amputee being restored. The cures are all on the inside. He once went to a religious meeting and wrote about an elderly woman who was taken up to the stage, blessed, and cured of cancer. He wrote this case up for his newspaper. But the following week she died. The newspaper editor told him not to run the story of her death. So people were misled.

Harrison explains how we accept some of these beliefs. Think of a stage magician, he is not using magic to perform these miraculous tricks. He is using Tricks! Smoke and mirrors, psychological tricks, false panels. Sure, you can enjoy the “magic” but don’t for a minute believe in his “magical powers” just because you don’t understand how his tricks are done.

In this book, each belief fits into a larger pattern, such as Magical Thinking, or Strange Healings. At the end of each chapter he provides a list of books that give evidence about each belief so that you can follow-up with some more detailed information.

If you read this book, it is certain that you will broaden your mind, and learn to think more objectively. You will be more aware, not sceptical, but less unsuspecting.

Finally, he provides a theory as to why people continue to believe unproven, discredited beliefs.

“… it is important to be aware of how we perceive and assess the world around us. We know that humans are pattern-seeking creatures. Without even trying, we naturally attempt to connect the dots in almost everything we see and hear. This is a great ability if you are trying to catch a camouflaged bird in a tree for your dinner… But pattern seeking also leads us to see things that are not there… which might waste our time and maybe get us into trouble… we also have a tendency to automatically make connections and find patterns in our thinking. This is one reason that unlikely conspiracy theories are able to take root and blossom in the minds of so many people.”
