We will not go down without a fight

by : Michel Heart

We will not go down without a fight

A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they’re dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
And nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who’s wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight

We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Israelis edging closer to cease-fire agreement in Gaza

(CNN) -- Israel's security cabinet could vote Saturday on the basics of a plan that may end the fighting in Gaza, as movement toward a cease-fire seemed to pick up steam on multiple fronts.

The meeting in Jerusalem, reported by local media Friday, would come a day after Israeli and U.S. diplomats signed an agreement designed to stop arms smuggling into the Palestinian territory.

In Washington, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni signed a memorandum of understanding that would prompt an international effort to stem the flow of weapons and explosives into Gaza.

Friday's agreement outlines a plan to share information and provide technical assistance to keep weapons out of the hands of Hamas, which Israel and the United States consider a terrorist organization.

Rice said the steps -- which include blocking arms from Iran into Gaza, working together to identify ships carrying weapons and sharing technology to stop the building of tunnels from Egypt to Gaza -- would be significant in keeping militants unarmed.

"The United States is reaching out to its partners as well. Together, the steps that we and other members of the international community can take will contribute to a durable cease-fire," she said.

"There must be an international consensus that Gaza never be used as a launching pad against Israeli cities."

Livni said that ending the fighting in Gaza wouldn't be "achieved by agreements with terror, but with effective arrangements against it" -- a unified effort by the international community. She said a "durable" end to hostilities requires a stop to weapons smuggling into Gaza.Hamas says a cease-fire alone is not enough.

"We are working in every direction so we can achieve our objectives in stopping the aggression, lifting the blockade, opening the crossings, and the compensation of our people and the rebuilding of the Gaza strip," Hamas delegation spokesman Salah Bardwill said.

Israeli Defense Ministry official Amos Gilad remained in Cairo on Friday, discussing a cease-fire proposal. A Hamas delegation is also in the Egyptian capital, talking with leaders there who are trying to hammer out a temporary truce.

Other diplomatic efforts include U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's ongoing trip through the region. Ban has called for an immediate cease-fire and said he is pleased with Egypt for serving as host of the talks and acting as an intermediary between Hamas and Israel.

The state of Qatar also held an emergency summit on Friday to find a unified Arab voice on Gaza. The meeting brought together some Arab and Muslim leaders, including the presidents of Iran and Syria and the leader of Hamas, Khaled Meshaal.

Friday evening, the United Nations' general assembly voted 142-4 to call on Israel to abide by a January 8 resolution by the U.N. Security Council. The resolution, which called for an immediate cease-fire by both sides in the conflict, was universally ignored.Israel and the United States were among the countries voting against Friday's effort.

Meanwhile, fighting raged on in north and south Gaza on Friday for the 21st day in Israel's military operation.

Israel's military reported firing on more than 25 Hamas targets, including Hamas fighters with rocket launchers, bunkers containing weapons and a tent with Hamas operatives inside.The Israelis said Hamas launched at least 20 rockets into southern Israel, wounding five civilians.

A CNN crew late Thursday was able to make its way into Gaza from Egypt -- an effort that has been difficult for foreign journalists, with Israel tightly controlling access through its border.On Friday, the crew got a firsthand look at the toll three weeks of airstrikes and ground attacks have had.

"You are doing a lot of work as a medical staff and, at the end of time, you lose the patient," said Egyptian doctor Mohamed Shama, who was working Friday at the Ysif Najjar Hospital in Rafah, near the Gaza-Egypt border.

Shama said he was working on a patient named Ala'a, who had taken shrapnel to the eye, chest, lungs and intestines. It was not clear whether the patient was a civilian or a Hamas militant.Shama said he had seen 12 patients die Thursday and Friday, and as he prepared to operate on Ala'a, he said the man's chances of survival were slim.

"You cannot leave the patient on the ground bleeding until death; you have two choices -- doing seven hours of work and lose the patient, or let him die."

More than 1,000 Palestinians, including hundreds of women and children, have been killed since the offensive began, according to medical sources in Gaza. Thirteen Israelis, 10 of them soldiers, have been killed, according to the Israeli military.

Starting A Small Business Blog

Simple tips to get started

If you run a small business you may want to consider starting your own blog to raise awareness about what you do.

There are some basic strategies you can use to start your blog. Consider who your audience is and write on subjects that will make them want to read your blog. Select a blog service that helps you build traffic and sends alerts if a reader comments on one of your posts.

Use an angle that will be compelling to your readers and at the same time be sincere in your views. Provide links on your blog to other sites that are related to your business and read the other blogs to stay informed about events or news that is happening in your field. Eventually other bloggers will start linking to your blog.

Keep your blog up to date so readers don't become frustrated with outdated content and will keep returning to see what you are saying. Keep tabs on your traffic to your site and don't be afraid to try other ideas to capture a larger audience.

Search engines like Google or Yahoo are another part of attracting readers to your blog. To generate traffic, use keywords in your headlines and blog postings that are related to your business.

Use an RSS feed so first time visitors to your blog will comeback again. If you connect readers with your blog's RSS feed your content will be syndicated whenever you write a new post.

Respond to comments you receive about your blog post even if they are negative or offer a perspective you don't agree with. Use your own voice and be honest.

Here is a link for a summary of five free blog services.

If you are not comfortable with writing your own blog you can turn to someone who works for your small business to write for your blog or a family member or friend who knows and understands the business. Also it's not a bad idea to have an occasional guest blogger write a post for your blog for variety and to fill in if you are not available.

Blogging is not just for large corporations it can benefit your small business by helping to create your brand. Even if you don't think you have a brand the truth is you do. Your customers or clients will view your blog as something real that shows how focused you are on the services you provide and can establish your business as an industry leader.

Here are some main reasons to start a small business blog.

1. A blog is an economic way to market your small business and enhance your brand, reputation and sales.

2. Blogs can provide you with immediate customer feedback. If you receive negative feedback look at it as a way to improve your business.

3. Blogs are easier and less costly to manage than a Web site for your small business.

4. Blogs can help attract new customers along with opening up the possibilities for new partnerships.

5. Blogs can help you and others learn and communicate about what your business does.

The Blogger SEO Burden

Drawbacks to Google's Blogging Platform

There is no question that blogging can help improve your search engine optimization efforts. Stephan Spencer, Founder & President Netconcepts talked about some of the reasons why in the following video, but he also said he favors some platforms over others for SEO purposes. Namely, he recommends WordPress or b2evolution as opposed to Google-owned Blogger.

While Spencer may be right about Blogger not being as good for SEO purposes, it raises the question: Why would a blog platform owned by Google itself carry a greater burden for getting good rankings on the very search engine that everyone strives to rank well in? I contacted Spencer to get his thoughts on just that.

Stephan Spencer Talks Blogger and SEO

"I don't think it is intentional on Google's part," says Spencer. "The developers of Blogger designed it for simplicity and usability (the "KISS" principle). They 'didn't know what they didn't know' -- and that unfortunately included SEO."

"Believe it or not, the search engines are not expert at SEO," Spencer continued. "They are expert at search algorithms, which is a very different thing. In fact, several search engines hired us at various times to advise them on SEO, i.e. to help them get their own sites to rank better in Google! The engineers don't have the deep SEO experience that allows them to make SEO-informed decisions around functionality (like support for tag clouds), site architecture & internal linking structure (e.g. the way they handle pagination), design and layout, etc."

Spencer touched upon on a few of these things that Blogger lacks for SEO purposes in the above video. He also followed up with me:

BTW, this one takes the cake... the tag pages on Blogger (actually referred to as "labels" by Blogger) are disallowed by the robots.txt file! They are within the search directory, which is disallowed:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /search


Spencer also notes in the video, that "it's really hard to get off of it once you're on it," and there are many, many people using Blogger. Even if the platform isn't great for SEO purposes, there are still some things that you can do to help somewhat. People have offered SEO tips for Blogger in the past.

This article is about two and a half years old, but Wayne Hurlbert offers some in it. SEO Kolkata also had some suggestions about a year ago.

SES Chicago: SEO Perks to Blogging

We’ve talked many times about the advantages of blogging. One area that we haven’t touched on a lot however is the SEO benefits of blogging. In this video, Stephan Spencer discusses the SEO friendly blogging platforms and the non-SEO friendly blogging platforms.

First of all, Stephan debunks the theory that simply having a blog makes it search engine friendly. While there is a bit of truth to the theory, there are many other benefits that people are missing. For instance, PageRank isn’t always accurate and tag pages and tag clouds aren’t used to their full potential.

Stephan highly recommends WordPress as a blogging platform. The great thing about many of these blogging platforms including WordPress, is that a blog doesn’t have to look like a typical blog. WordPress can be used as a content management system (CMS) and is very search friendly. Stephan’s company site,, is a perfect example of this. If he hadn’t told us, no would ever know that the site was running as a WordPress blog.

Another blogging platform Stephan recommends is b2evolution. It brings SEO improvements that aren’t available in other blogging platforms. This platform is also free and runs on your own domain or website.

Lastly, Stephan does not recommend Blogger. His main arguments against it are its limitations. According to Stephan, Blogger users cannot set up 301 redirects and cannot incorporate tag clouds.

Now that you have a couple of recommendations to work with, go out there and utilize these blogging platforms!

How to Use Video to Improve Google Ranking & Conversions

Good Video Content Will Give You a Competitive Edge

Online video is consuming the web as we know it whether you like it or not. Some prefer text content over video in most cases, and that's ok too. I don't think text is going anywhere, but demand for video is on the rise from both consumers, and businesses looking to stay on top of their marketing. Just like not all text is great, not all video is great, but when done well, I think you will find that it offers plenty of reward.

Content and Reputation

Bad videos are a turn off for viewers. They must have value. Otherwise they'll be viewed as a waste of time. If viewers see your videos as a waste of time, this is generally going to equate to wasted time on your part as well, and chances are that you put a whole lot more time into your videos than any viewer will. But even worse, if your videos are perceived as a waste of time by viewers, it's going to reflect negatively on your brand, or at the very least upon your ability to offer useful and informative content.

Remember, while the rise in online video popularity is certainly evident, many people would just as soon obtain the information they're looking for with text. In fact, this is a good reason to offer truly unique content with your videos. Developing a reputation for having solid unique content with them will give people a reason to watch them. The best videos provide a user experience that simply can't be duplicated in text.

Robert Scoble cited a good example in a recent post. "Text is easier to consume. Easier to search. All that stuff. But here, let’s try something. You take 1,000 words to explain to me what the next game from EA looks like. I’ll do it in a minute or two of video. The video will beat your blog every time," he declares.

Length is often a factor. As a rule, people generally do not want to watch lengthy videos unless they are either entertaining or truly useful to them. From a business standpoint, I believe you are going to have greater success with making the content as useful as possible in as little amount of time as possible.

Grant CrowellVideo Usability

Grantastic Designs Founder Grant Crowell writing for ReelSEO has a great article/podcast on web video usability. He discusses the need for video providers to have some kind of usability standards. In his article, Crowell talks about some factors that should be taken into consideration when providing video content:

- Location
- Features
- Testing

By location, he means, where it is being viewed. Is it being viewed on a website or in a stand-alone player? Is it on your own site or is it being viewed in an embedded player on someone else’s? Do you even offer the ability to embed your videos?

Apart from embedding availability, features of the video include things like the player itself, the navigation of that player, accessibility, search, image and audio quality, length, content, speed (buffering), conversions, and completion. Videos should also be tested. This means: lab testing, user testing, and analytics.

Engagement and Google

In Crowell's article, he also talks about the engagement factor of videos. Being how user-engagement is of growing importance (and will likely continue to be as SERPs evolve), I wanted to hear some more of his thoughts on this, so I contacted him and we had a little chat. Following is what came of that:

Chris Crum: You refer to engagement as an active state, and I agree, but what kind of actions do you expect videos to inspire? Comments? Conversions?

Grant Crowell: The actions ultimately depend on the business model of the video owner. But the potential with video is far greater at engagement and conversions than with static content. The first step is getting attention. After that it can serve as a direct response or lead, or buzz (going viral), or branding.

Even within the video, you can have several calls-to-action, all clickable and with additional actionable items from them. (See our latest video interview at ReelSEO on Mixpo, for more on this.

"Conversions" can be both mini and macro, depending again on what are the business objectives of the video owner. A comment could likely be a mini-conversion. A hundred comments and 3rd party link popularity and buzz, well that could be a macro-conversion.

CC: SEO Bruce Clay recently speculated that as SERPs evolve, videos might make a difference in ranking. For example if two competing businesses have content of basically equal value, but only one of them has video, the one with video might be favored. How important do you think it's going to be for businesses to offer some kind of video content on their sites?

GC: Video itself can be given an almost "unfair advantage" in the SERPs. We've demonstrated that at ReelSEO with how we're able to have our own image icons show up from our videos for search results -- directly from our site (not YouTube). I've even done a case study to show how [in] a video series I did on YouTube, the targeted keywords had my image icons show up higher that the entire local and regional media stories.

In fact, many smokers who feel frustrated over the fact that smoking cessation is extremely difficult for them, then there is one method that could be the solution for them - Stop smoking laser therapy treatment. Many smokers from all over the world are able to break the habit for good.

In spite of age, many chain smokers find it extremely hard to quit smoking permanently. For those who had tried stop smoking for a while, they tend to succumb to the nicotine cravings that makes the smoking habit seems inevitable. Many of them had experienced endless periods of 'smoking-quitting-smoking' throughout years that could deteriorate their health.

Since stop smoking laser therapy treatment has been operating in several health institutions, the smoker's body is given a laser treatment where the laser light is directed to the acupuncture points of the arms, wrists, and hands. These laser points are targeted to those specific points to stimulate the endorphin hormones to block nicotine cravings.

In this therapy, it has proven scientifically proven that smokers able to break the smoking habit for good. In order to quit smoking, another aspect of the laser treatment is introduced to maintain a healthy lifestyle by offering alternatives to nicotine cravings.

Insurance Quotes and Rates for 2009

by Adam Alter

The insurance industry is reporting that insurance premiums across the board have increased an average of 6% entering 2009. Studies show the main factors that increases premiums are claims and business costs, but inflation plays its part as well.

For example, in the health insurance sector two major issues are driving costs up. One is that people living unhealthy lives and having more claims. The second is that the cost of health care is rising due to sue happy consumers. All we typically hear about in the news is the patient that was screwed over or mistreated. At the same time, even though it's not as news worthy, there are lots of frivolous and ridiculous lawsuits of people wanting to blame their doctor for their problems.

As expected, this is causing many to look for discount plans from the self-employed to the corporate groups small and large.

To continue using the health care industry as an example, the health insurance companies are trying to keep their insurance quotes competitive. These insurance companies are fighting back and attempting to direct consumers down a healthier path. By offering better coverage on routine checkups and recommended test procedures for conditions by age and high risk categories, they can increase early diagnosis which can often decrease the degree of treatment required. This saves money for everyone as well as pain and even potential deaths of the consumers.

To some it may sound extreme that they must push us for regular checkups and to think twice about everything we do in our lives as to whether or not it's considered "healthy". However, this is all they're left with in order to continue being able to stay in business and consumers be able to continue paying for their insurance. What this presents to those comparing insurance quotes to find the best rates and coverage is more fine print and policy details to take into account. Be more responsible in finding the right plan rather than jumping into a policy that leaves you uncovered when you need it most.

Some people in all sectors are opting for policies with very high deductibles to just cover an extreme case that could bury them financially. They're paying out of pocket for their needs such as with small auto repairs, or health checkups and if there's an emergency they're covered. This makes people be more responsible for their lives rather than paying an insurance company and milking everything they can from it. The advise when going this route is to go with the highest deductible you could possibly afford with home insurance, auto insurance, health insurance, and the many insurance types under and between those main categories.

Other than raising deductibles and reducing claims, the best way for the consumer to save the most amount of money is to compare their rates regularly with what is out there available. Websites like have free services that will pull insurance quotes from multiple providers allowing quick and easy comparisons of rates and coverage. There's no obligation and no spam attached to filling out a profile.

Tips for Saving Money on The Insurance Premium

by Franchis Adam

In many countries getting a driving license and that too in just a single attempt is a big deal. There are people who celebrate if they get their driving license in their teenage. The reason why Driving licenses are so important is that without driving license one is not legally allowed to drive a vehicle.

Apart from the driving license there is another requirement which one has to fulfill before driving a vehicle and that is auto insurance. Auto insurance is a vital part of the legal requirement which one has to fulfill in any condition and if anyone found guilty in this regard then he will be punished. The punishment could be fine or few months' imprisonment or both.

Another than the legal requirement there are many benefits of auto insurance like medical cover for the owner, car repairs etc. But the reason why people ignore the insurances and don't feel the need of these policies is the cost of the insurance. Most of the people think that they will never use these insurance as they are the safe drivers but they do not think about the uncertainties that can happen to them. This is why govt. put a bar that every car owner has to sign up an insurance policy for their vehicle.

If one is worried of the cost of the insurance policy then it doesn't mean that he should ignore the need of insurance. There are ways in which one can cut over the cost of the insurance policies and this will help them to get a car insurance policy for their children.

Here are few tips through which one can lower down the car insurance expenditure.

1. In every car company there is a provision in which the customers get the chances of paying a lower premium. This is kind a facility for the car users and they can avail this only in one condition by driving safely. A spotless driving record can award them with a kind of special discount which could be more than 50% amount of the total premium. Avoiding all the traffic rules violation also helps in it.

2. Avoid those cars which fall under the higher risk category. There is a wide range of cars available in the market which has upgraded and advanced safety measures. Also if one owns a car which falls under the risk category then he can install the safety kit in their car, which is easily available in the market.

Worst than that will be when your relationship is going through a rough patch. These are the things that every human will be facing as after all, we are humans and not divine creatures. At such inevitable times, this day comes to the rescue and serves as an auspicious moment when one could re-unite with their respective partners, forgetting everything else and putting your partner at the very center of your attention. Besides, this day will sprout branches of past memories when you made a promise that you will never leave your partner till death does you both apart.

Those days will be revived when you were a slave to your love’s charms. Time will be flowing like a river, wave after wave, quite unlike your daily hectic routine.
