Richmond initially was required to register his address every six months for 20 years. Lipps in 2014 decreased Richmond’s reporting requirement to once a year for 10 years.Ohio law allows juveniles to request complete removal from the registry. The state opposes Richmond’s request.

Powered by Firework Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho lambasted at his former side for their shambolic defending against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League second-leg which saw them lose 3-0 at Camp Nou.Advertisement In the previous season, Manchester United was one of the toughest sides to break down, conceding only 28 goals in the Premier League. However, their defensive shape against Barcelona on Wednesday was nothing but abysmal.Advertisement “Lots of mistakes, lots of goals with awful defending on the inside foot. You look to Coutinho goal, even Messi goal.”Jose Mourinho criticized Manchester United’s formation in particular as they deployed only Fred in the defensive midfield, a zone which Messi exploited.Advertisement “In front of the defensive line was only Fred. And that’s the area where Messi comes and gets the ball and when Messi has the ball. One, one, one. You are dead. That’s why I never liked individual man-on-man against Messi. Messi’s a cage. You have to create a cage.”However, he didn’t back out in admitting that Barcelona were the better side and deserved to win the fixture and progress to the semi-finals of UEFA Champions League.“Barcelona is Barcelona, they are better a better team than Manchester United, they have better players than Manchester United. I think it’s normal they won.” Advertisementlast_img read more

The paragraphs give no indication of the meaning behind the content, they’re just a bunch of paragraph tags.Add sementic data to the content and every part of the recipe has been identified as a certain part of content related to recipes.Schema.org is the agreed-upon vocabulary recommended by the major search engines (Microsoft, Google, Yahoo) Three main types of data in schema.org: itemscope: new item, itemtype: type of item, itemprop: gives the item properties and values Available Tools for Adding Semantic DataVisit schema.org for details on how to add semantic data directly to your theme files.Free Schema Creator site from Raven. Note: it doesn’t cover all the schemas. Click through to view, fill out a form, and Schema Creator will generate the markup code for you. Copy and paste the markup into your website page.Thankfully, Raven created a Schema Creator plugin for WordPress. Once installed and activated, you’ll see it in your Dashboard > Settings. Note: disable the “Exclude default CSS for schema output” if you don’t want the plugin to style the added semantic data.

I had no idea there was that much symantic data.— ((( Amanda ))) (@megarush1024) December 7, 2013 Once the plugin is installed, if you display any page on your site, the Add Schema button displays next to the Add Media button. Select the button and you will be prompted to select a schema and use a form to enter the information for that schema.You can also use the Google Structured Data Markup Helper. It works well for HTML pages, but not so well for WordPress sites. A better choice for WordPress sites is Google Webmaster Tools. They offer Structured Data tool within Webmaster Tools. Once you tag the content, Google saves the information. You don’t have to make changes to your site. Google knows the content is a specific event, etc. Go to Search Appearance > Data Highlighter. Enter the URL of your website page. Choose info to highlight and add information.Social semantic data can be added with Yoast WordPress SEO Plugin. Use Google Structured Data Testing Tool to check the semantic data added to your pageHTML5 adds semantic data to your page. Rel, canonical, breadcrumb microdata, etc.Justin Tadlock’s Stargazer WordPress theme released last month with built-in schema.org microdata.

Global food crisis addressed

first_imgStatistics released by the World Bank indicate that food prices have increased by a staggering 83%(Image: World Food Programme) Khanyi MagubaneWorld leaders, starting to feel the pressure from disgruntled poor people, are taking the global increase in food prices and its effects seriously.On 22 April the World Food Program (WFP) hosted a summit on the food crisis in London. Josette Sheeren, the WFP’s executive director, warned that a “silent tsunami” of hunger is sweeping the world’s most desperate nations. She noted that the price of rice has more than doubled in the past five weeks and that China and India are currently facing an increased demand for their produce.British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, who co-hosted the talks with Sheeren, said the spiralling prices threaten to plunge millions back into poverty and reverse progress on alleviating poverty in the developing world. “Tackling hunger is a moral challenge to each of us and it is also a threat to the political and economic stability of nations,” Brown said.In New York, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has also voiced his concern over the increase in food prices, calling for both immediate and long-term measures to tackle the crisis. “We need not only short-term emergency measures to meet urgent critical needs and avert starvation in many regions across the world, but also a significant increase in long-term productivity in food grain production,” he said.French President Nicolas Sarkozy has suggested setting up global partnerships among financial institutions, governments and the private sector to tackle the main reasons behind rising food prices.Scale of the problemRecent statistics released by the World Bank indicate that food prices have increased by a staggering 83% increased by a staggering 83%The organisation says high food prices are threatening recent gains in overcoming poverty and malnutrition, and are likely to persist over the medium-term. “Poor people are suffering daily from the impact of high food prices, especially in urban areas and in low-income countries,” said World Bank Group president Robert Zoellick.According to a World Bank policy document entitled Rising Food Prices: Policy Options and World Bank Response, increases in global wheat prices reached 181% over the 36 months leading up to February 2008, and overall global food prices increased by 83%. Food crop prices are expected to remain high in 2008 and 2009.The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is also concerned. Head of the IMF Dominique Strauss-Kahn recently told French radio that soaring world food prices could have dire consequences, such as toppling governments and even triggering wars. The IMF chief says the problem could also threaten democracies, even in countries where governments have done all they can to help the low-income earning population.South Africa searching for solutionsSouth Africa has not gone untouched by the food crisis. Trade union federation Cosatu recently held a march in Johannesburg to protest against soaring food prices. They called on government to find a lasting solution to the problem.The government and the agricultural industry have also been in discussions to find ways to curb food-price inflation, which in recent months has seen the price of basic foodstuffs increase by 14% in South Africa.Government spokesperson Themba Maseko says the government is developing a strategy to address this challenge. He said the government is confident that the competition authorities, who regulate food prices in different industries, will continue to be vigilant and take strong action to curb negative practices that had also contributed to higher food prices.A researcher from the Institute for Security Studies, David Zounmenou, recently told the Mail & Guardian newspaper that in African countries where unemployment rates are high and social delivery low, an increase in food prices will certainly continue pushing people over the edge. “High food prices can only add fuel to this [unrest] and can be exploited by the opposition or other interest groups to create instability.”Other areas of Africa where violence has flared due to high food prices include Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire and Senegal.Useful linksUN food and agriculture organisationWorld Food ProgramWorld BankInternational Money FundDepartment of AgricultureDo you have any queries or comments about this article?

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting At Amazon’s scale, the business is all about efficiency. Amazon’s Web services allow it to manage almost every step of the online retail process, but the rubber hits the road in the fulfillment center. The only way for Amazon to move boxes as efficiently as bits – or close to it – is by supplementing its human workers with the busy choreography of warehouse droids.Photo: Joel Eden Photography/Kiva Systems Yesterday, Amazon announced its acquisition of Kiva Systems, Inc. for around $775 million in cash. Kiva makes warehouse robots. They’re sturdy, orange little droids shaped like a toaster on its side, and the various models can lift and carry 1,000 pounds or more. Kiva’s automatons and control software help warehouses streamline the management of their inventory.Amazon was already using the robots to keep its massive fulfillment centers organized, as were big-time customers including Crate & Barrel, Office Depot, Saks Fifth Avenue, Staples, Toys ‘R’ Us and Walgreens. They’re also used by Zappos.com and Diapers.com, other Amazon properties. It’s another big expenditure for Amazon as its profits sink, but there are major efficiencies to gain here.The Kiva robots can carry huge racks of warehouse inventory, so workers don’t have to walk miles a day shuffling things around. The people can stay in one place, taking care of the small and complex tasks like sorting, while the robots handle the large loads and the long distances.That’s a more efficient use of time and energy. But does that mean Amazon will need fewer people to run the fulfillment centers?An Amazon spokeswoman told the Wall Street Journal that no jobs will be eliminated as a result of the deal. Amazon employes over 56,000 people, but it doesn’t disclose how many of those work in fulfillment centers. The warehouses also require thousands of temporary workers, especially during peak holiday periods. With 69 of these massive facilities largely run by hand, Amazon is surely looking to robots as a more efficient option.The acquisition is not just a way to cut costs. Each Kiva system costs millions of dollars, and Amazon will now be selling them to other companies.But the long-term significance of the deal is about Amazon streamlining its own systems. Amazon has been investing heavily in facilities, including 17 new fulfillment centers last year. It’s also taking losses on every Kindle Fire sold, planning to make it up in media sales over time. It has to take up some slack somewhere. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market jon mitchell A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Tags:#Amazon#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

Story Highlights Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries Minister, Hon. Audley Shaw, says the Ministry is targeting the implementation of several strategies intended to boost Jamaica’s livestock and dairy industries, to enable the country to become more self-sufficient in these areas.He said the strategies aim, over time, to reduce imports and improve the country’s beef, goat meat (chevon) and milk production.“We are going to have to import embryos and we are going to have to find clean disease-free cattle to import calves into Jamaica, so that we can start to aggressively rebuild the beef industry and the dairy industry,” he said.Noting that this has been done with pigs and chickens, Mr. Shaw contended that “we can do it with beef and we can do it with dairy”.The Minister was speaking at the opening ceremony for the Youth in Agriculture Village at the 66th Denbigh Agricultural, Industrial and Food Show at the Denbigh Showground in May Pen, Clarendon, on August 4.Noting that preserving Jamaica’s food security is a high priority for the Government, Mr. Shaw said focus on repositioning the country to become self-sufficient in crop and livestock production, is also intended to further reduce imports.He argued that it is “unacceptable” that Jamaica is importing as much as 85 per cent of the foods being consumed by locals and tourists, “when we have… so much (arable) land and technology that is available”.Hence the need, the Minister added, for the country to “have a plan” that effectively rectifies this scenario.Meanwhile, Mr. Shaw congratulated Hi-Pro Ace Supercentre for the outstanding work over the past 60 years that has contributed to the agricultural sector’s enhancement.Speaking at the company’s unveiling of new products designed to revolutionise the cattle industry during the Denbigh show on Saturday, Mr. Shaw said Hi-Pro should be praised for “your consistent pursuit of excellence” aimed at boosting local agricultural productivity.last_img read more
