Decoding Illuminati Symbolism: Triangles, Pyramids and the Sun

 Illuminati  Comments Off on Decoding Illuminati Symbolism: Triangles, Pyramids and the Sun
Jul 222015
 

Psychiatrist Carl Jung once said about symbols that their purpose was to give a meaning to the life of man.Catapulted into the mainstream by Jay-Zs infamous Roc-diamond (which only looks likea triangle, although he has said that its a four sided diamond for the Rock in Roc-A-Fella records), the symbolism of the triangle and pyramid are key players in the realm of conspiracy theories and Illuminati symbolism. You can find these symbols in most any big-industry; music, film, corporate logos, etc. But why do we see these symbols so often? What do they truly mean?

The symbol of the triangle is commonly held to have a much deeper and esoteric meaning than the basic geometric shape we common-folk see. The symbolism, or meaning, of the triangle is usually viewed as one of spiritual importance. The Christian faith views the three sides of the triangle as the Holy Trinity; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Ancient Egyptians believed the right sided triangle represented their form of the Trinity with the hypotenuse being the child god Horus, the upright side being the sacred feminine goddess Isis, and the base is the male Osiris.

This concept was kept in a sort of chain of custody when the Greek mathematician Pythagoras learned much from the ancient Egyptians and then applied it to geometry. He even went as far as to set up one of the first schools of mystery with a religious sect that practiced his philosophy, mathematics, and conferring of esoteric principles. In theory, the secret societies, cults, occultists, and other nefarious groups, collectively known as the Illuminati, maintain all of this knowledge and use it in a much different manner.

To understand why all of this matters, you must learn about the belief system of the occult. A researcher named Marty Leeds wrote books on mathematics and the universal language that nature uses to communicate to us. He believes that various languages are sacred and have a basis in ancient symbols through mathematics. I find his argument compelling, and Ive tried to incorporate some its logic into this post, as I find it important to argument.

The three sides of a triangle represent the number 3, and this concept is used in gematria, the ancient Babylonian/Hebrew numerology practice that assigns numbers to words or letters (and also other mystical schools of thought). The number 3 is representative of the spirit realm (or the Heavens), while in contrast, the number 4 represents the physical realm (the material, three-dimensional world we can relate to). The number 3 is a number of the divine, showing the union of male and female that create a third being. Its the number of manifestation; to make something happen.

Another analogy to consider is that the upright triangle points towards the Heavens, while the inverted points to the Earth (or Hell if you want to get all fire and brimstone with it).

Harper to meet with NATO secretary general

By The Canadian Press

OTTAWA – NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg is making his first visit to Canada this week, with the subject of how to address rising tensions with Russia likely to feature high on the agenda.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper is scheduled to meet with Stoltenberg on Monday, and a Canadian source close to the meetings said the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) would be a major topic of discussion.

Harper plans to ask the House of Commons to extend and expand Canada’s military involvement this week.

But NATO has had no formal role to date in fighting ISIL. Russian President Vladmir Putin’s recent moves, including mobilizing 45,000 northern troops for military exercises last week, have been the alliance’s major preoccupation.

On Sunday, NATO’s supreme allied commander Gen. Philip Breedlove told a news conference that the west should consider sending defensive weapons into Ukraine. The UN has said 6,000 people have died in the country over the past year.

The United States has been actively considering sending lethal defensive weapons to Ukraine to help that country defend itself against Russian-backed fighters. Germany has urged caution, warning that supplying Ukraine could escalate tensions.

Defence Minister Jason Kenney has dropped broad hints that Canada could be poised to provide Ukraine with more military assistance. He has said cabinet is considering whether Canada should join the U.S. and Britain in a military training mission to help Ukrainian troops.

Stoltenberg, a former Norwegian cabinet minister who took up the post last October, has warned that snap Russian military exercises and less communication between Russia and NATO could have dire consequences.

“It is important we keep the channels for military communication open to have as much transparency as possible to avoid misunderstandings and to make sure that incidents don’t spiral and get out of control,” Stoltenberg told the Guardian newspaper last week.

WordPress out of the box is already technically quite a good platform for SEO, this was true when Joost wrote his original WordPress SEO article in 2008 (and updated every few months) and it’s still true today, but that doesn’t mean you can’t improve it further! This plugin is written from the ground up by Joost de Valk and his team at Yoast to improve your site’s SEO on all needed aspects. While this WordPress SEO plugin goes the extra mile to take care of all the technical optimization, more on that below, it first and foremost helps you write better content. WordPress SEO forces you to choose a focus keyword when you’re writing your articles, and then makes sure you use that focus keyword everywhere.

Premium Support The Yoast team does not provide support for the WordPress SEO plugin on the WordPress.org forums. One on one email support is available to people who bought the Premium WordPress SEO plugin only. Note that the Premium SEO plugin has several extra features too so it might be well worth your investment!

You should also check out the Local SEO, News SEO and Video SEO extensions to WordPress SEO, these of course come with support too.

Take a look at the explanation of the General tab in WordPress SEO, this is one of the 13 tutorial videos included in the Premium version of WordPress SEO:

Bug Reports Bug reports for WordPress SEO are welcomed on GitHub. Please note GitHub is not a support forum and issues that aren’t properly qualified as bugs will be closed.

Using the snippet preview you can see a rendering of what your post or page will look like in the search results, whether your title is too long or too short and your meta description makes sense in the context of a search result. This way the plugin will help you not only increase rankings but also increase the click through for organic search results.

The WordPress SEO plugins Page Analysis functionality checks simple things you’re bound to forget. It checks, for instance, if you have images in your post and whether they have an alt tag containing the focus keyword for that post. It also checks whether your posts are long enough, if you’ve written a meta description and if that meta description contains your focus keyword, if you’ve used any subheadings within your post, etc. etc.

The plugin also allows you to write meta titles and descriptions for all your category, tag and custom taxonomy archives, giving you the option to further optimize those pages.

Combined, this plugin makes sure that your content is the type of content search engines will love!

While out of the box WordPress is pretty good for SEO, it needs some tweaks here and there. This WordPress SEO plugin guides you through some of the settings needed, for instance by reminding you to enable pretty permalinks. But it also goes beyond that, by automatically optimizing and inserting the meta tags and link elements that Google and other search engines like so much:

Do the letters S, E, and O strike fear in your heart? When people talk about keyword research or link building, do you want to hide under a rock?

Not everyone is a fan of SEO, and thats okay.Many business owners are (understandably) more interested in performing core tasks related to their business; and while most would love to have more search engine traffic, the specifics of how to get it may feel like a bit of a mystery.

This post will give even the most SEO-indifferent or SEO-hating business owners a palatable strategy for improving their search rankings. You dont have to love it you just have to do it!

In my experience and as Ive been doing a lot of SEO recently on my free invoicing software, people who think they hate SEO often have a skewed idea of what SEO actually is. They think its all very technical (tootechnical), and that theres some kind of secret SEO formula they need to learn. And not only do they not havetimeto learn this formula, they have nointerestin learning it.

I get it. So let me give you a very short, to-the-point overview of what SEO really is, and why its not worth hating:SEO is simply letting the search engines know what your content is about.Thats it. While there are technical elements to it, almost anyone can understand and implement the basics. And the basics are often enough to get you increased search rankings.

Bottom line: Stop avoiding SEO. You can do this. The basics are just that: basic.

Assuming you now hate SEO slightly less, its time to move on to step 2.

There are a number of big mistakes that can pretty much ensure you wont get search traffic. Before we look at the stuff youcando, lets make sure youre not doing the stuff youshouldntdo. Take a look through this list to make sure youre not breaking any of these cardinal sins of SEO:

I know you dont like the sounds of this. Keywords sound technical, and we dont like technical. But keywords are actually just the words and phrases on your site that you want to rank for.

Strauss: Liberty University students say they were required to attend Ted Cruz speech

 Liberty  Comments Off on Strauss: Liberty University students say they were required to attend Ted Cruz speech
Mar 272015
 

Republican Sen Ted Cruz appeared earlier this week at Liberty University in Virginia to announce that he was running for president in 2016, becoming the first major candidate in the Democratic or Republican parties to formally declare. Cruz delivered the news at Liberty the largest Christian university in the world before a gathering of students. What you might not know about that gathering was that the students were required to attend. This post explains what happened and why. It was written by Alexandra Markovich, a 19-year-old student at Princeton University who is a member of the University Press Club, a selective group of undergraduate students who freelance for regional and national publications. Markovich is an intended major in the Woodrow Wilson School of International and Public Affairs with a focus in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies.

By Alexandra Markovich

Ted Cruz became the first Republican candidate to officially announce his 2016 presidential campaign in front of an audience of 11,000 college students on March 23, 2015. The catch: they had to be there. Cruz made his announcement on Monday morning at Liberty University, where Convocation is mandatory to students living on campus at risk of a $10 fine for failing to attend.

As sophomore Luke Wittel walked through the doors of the Vines Center, home to Libertys mens and womens basketball teams, he was offered an American Flag, the first thing that made Wittel realize this was going to be more political rally than spiritual gathering. The American flags blended patriotism and support for Ted Cruz, Wittel said, in a way that made him nervous.

All Wittel could do to show his disagreement was not to take the flag. Wittel said that when he asked his RA if he could be excused and not be forced into apparent political association, he was sternly reminded of school policy. Throughout the hour-long Convocation, Wittel said he was not allowed to leave.

Liberty University is an evangelical university in Lynchburg, Virginia founded by the late pastor Jerry Falwell in 1971. A recent Washington Post article called Liberty the symbolic center of the GOP political-religious universe in recent years. The social conservative youth ticket will be an important card to punch in the GOP campaign.

Seeing the American flags handed out left Wittel with bitter feelings of political exploitation. Nothing makes you feel more like a pawn than being told to hold this and sit down, he said. But, Wittel sees logic behind holding the announcement at Liberty.

Nato head tells David Cameron: We are counting on your leadership

 NATO  Comments Off on Nato head tells David Cameron: We are counting on your leadership
Mar 132015
 

We appreciate the leadership that the UK shows in the Alliance, and we count on leadership also in the future, Mr Stoltenberg said.

In the same press release, Nato said he would be meeting Michael Fallon to ensure important decisions from the Wales summit last year were being implemented.

A central outcome of the summit was a promise for all European allies to recommit to spending 2 per cent of their GDP on defence a long-standing obligation.

At the time the Prime Minister called on those countries below the mark to meet the obligation within a decade and signed a pledge saying Britain would aim to continue to hit the 2 per cent mark.

In a separate development, Mr Cameron appeared to admit the difficulty in justifying why a government should protect aid spending during austerity while not ring-fencing defence.

Pushed by the Financial Times on how the Prime Minister could say defence was more about deployability of forces than raw spending numbers while enshrining legal aid spending in law, Mr Cameron reportedly said: Its a fair point.

No 10 spokesperson said of the meeting between Mr Cameron and Mr Stoltenberg: The Prime Minister explained that the UK would continue to meet the 2 per cent target this financial year and next, but decisions beyond this would be made in the next Spending Review.

The Secretary General said he appreciated the UKs leadership within the Alliance and that the Government was using its defence spending to focus on investment in new capabilities.”

Last month two former Nato heads warned that Mr Cameron will embolden Mr Putin and Islamic terrorists if he reneges on a commitment to spend two per cent of GDP on defence.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen, who left the post as Nato general secretary last year, and his predecessor Jaap de Hoop Scheffer said cutting defence after the election would strength Britains enemies.

Cryptocurrency software bundled with BitTorrent triggers complaints

 Cryptocurrency  Comments Off on Cryptocurrency software bundled with BitTorrent triggers complaints
Mar 072015
 

After updating BitTorrent’s uTorrent, some users reported that mining software had appeared on their PCs without their consent

Some people who use uTorrent, the popular BitTorrent client, are up in arms over the presence of cryptocurrency mining software on their computers which they say was installed without their permission.

The mining software, made by the company Epic Scale, started appearing for some people earlier this week after they updated to the latest version of uTorrent, a program made by BitTorrent for downloading files. In forums online, users have likened the software to bloatware, as it taxes their computer processor without their consent. Cryptocurrency mining software is used to release bitcoins and other digital currencies by having computers persistently perform complex mathematical calculations.

Some uTorrent users have said their computers were slowing down and overheating due to the software, kicking their fans into overdrive. Others reported persistent pop-ups they couldn’t remove, or messages saying their computers were unable to connect to a server.

“When I arrived home this evening my PC was running at full tilt and practically blowing steam,” one user wrote on the site for FreeFixer, which makes a tool for removing unwanted software. A thread there has amassed dozens of complaints over the past couple of days.

Users said they received no notification that the software was being installed.

“The only reason I found out about it was that I was playing a game and it was running much slower than usual with constant hiccups,” one user wrote.

Users have reported similar complaints in a forum on uTorrent’s own site, according to news reports, but those threads have since been removed.

A spokesman for uTorrent maker BitTorrent said there is no silent install happening. Epic Scale is one of many partners that BitTorrent has that might provide installation offers during the install of uTorrent, and the installation is optional, BitTorrent said in a joint blog post with Epic Scale on Friday.

Still, BitTorrent is looking into the issue internally and with Epic Scale, BitTorrent said in the post. The company has received less than a dozen inquiries about the issue over the past 24 hours, the spokesman said.

Review: Madonna's 'Rebel Heart': A point/counterpoint review

 Illuminati  Comments Off on Review: Madonna's 'Rebel Heart': A point/counterpoint review
Mar 062015
 

KYLE ANDERSON Its been sort of a rough 21st century for Madonna. After the stellar premillennial onetwo punch of Ray of Light and Music, its felt like she has been following rather than innovating. Rebel Heart is stuffed with top-level talentDiplo, Avicii, Kanyebut at the end of the day, theyre not who were here for. Adam, what are your expectations of a Madonna album in 2015?

ADAM MARKOVITZ Even for those of us who remember her imperial phase (c. 19852001), shes become a giant cultural question mark. Is Madonna a still-active pop star in a slow period? A nostalgia act who puts out new music? A living legend who wont go gently into that good four-nights-a-week Vegas residency? Rebel has an electro-rap track called Bitch Im Madonnabut I honestly dont know what that means anymore. And by the sound of Rebel Heart, which has some nice melodies and thoughtful lyrics buried under a lot of badass posturing, Madonna doesnt either. Her best albums always had a clear goal, whether it was dancing or shocking or chakra-ing. This time it feels like she just wants to prove she isnt finished yet.

ANDERSON Youre not wrong. Both sonically and philosophically, the album is all over the place. The opener, lead single Living for Love, has a big sexy disco underbelly and just enough Diplo glitch to give it some edge. Then theres the rocksteady dub Unapologetic Bitch, the post-Yeezus robo-grind Illuminati, the electro-campfire sing-along Joan of Arc. All that style whiplash can be vertigo-inducing. And yet despite the idea overload, I like way more here than I expected to. I would have assumed that a Mike Tyson rant, a barely intelligible Chance the Rapper verse, and seemingly six different hooks would make Iconic my most skipped track. Yet I kind of admire its chaos. Same goes for Holy Water: I should be completely over the idea of Madonna juxtaposing Christian imagery with frank sexuality, which she has been doing for three decades. Maybe its the bass gurgles that remind me of classic Massive Attack or the reference to Vogue, but she sells it for me. I cant stand Body Shop, thoughan extended car/sex metaphor that sounds as if she just discoveredliterary devices.

MARKOVITZ S.E.X. is pretty awful: Oh my God/Soaking wet/Back and forth/Until we break the bed is amateur-hour erotica from somebody who once released an album literally called Erotica. But I do like the weird touches. She name-checks Bieber and the Pope on Illuminati and then implies that her body fluids are a sacrament on Holy Water. Body Shop has the most natural vocals on the album; Madonna sounds like an actual human woman instead of Siri singing Fifty Shades of Grey on low batteries. The funny, creative, outrageous Madonna weve known is still in here somewhere. It just takes a lot of patience to find her.

ANDERSON I have faith that shell reveal herself with repeated listens. (Weirdly, for an album mostly designed to move people in a club, its actually a pretty fascinating headphone trip.) This may be damning it with faint praise, but this is Madonnas best outing since 2000s Music, and that earns Rebel Heart a solid B.

MARKOVITZ I love that shes as frustrating and ambitious as everstill difficult, complicated, and hard to pin down. But thats how Id describe this album, too. If Like a Virgin is her A game, and something rocky but rewarding like Bedtime Stories is B level, then this gets a C+.

BEST TRACKS:

Living for Love

Ghosttown

Should You Customize Your #SEO Strategy For Specific Niches? by @tomdemers

 SEO  Comments Off on Should You Customize Your #SEO Strategy For Specific Niches? by @tomdemers

Most people would acknowledge that the contents of your site will play a major role in determining your SEO strategy. Few marketers or SEOs would argue the strategy for a large news-oriented publishing site versus a large e-commerce site versus a small SaaS site will be distinctly different, with varyinglevel of emphasis on technical issues, content strategies, and link building tacticsfor each.

Its also pretty obvious that the amount of money and headcount you have to dedicate to your SEO efforts will impact what you can and cant do as it relates to SEO.

But theres a third important factor in designing your SEO strategy.

What about the specific niche that youre in? Should your niche impact your SEO strategy?

The short answer is: absolutely, yes.

The longer answer is that there are some basic considerations (and several related questions) you need to keep in mind in when devising your SEO strategy. In this post Ill walk through each of those, and show you how to think about each consideration to ensure you are focusing on the right tactics and getting the most leverage possible out of your SEO efforts.

The first thing to think about related to your niche in developing an SEO strategy is how do people (and particularly your ideal prospects and customers) search and ultimately buy things?

To help give some additional context throughout this post, Im going to imagine I have four different businesses in four dramatically different niches (then Im going to imagine taking a nap, because I think Ive bitten off more than I can pretend to chew), and Iwilloutline an SEO strategy for each (again these are all entirely fictional companies, Im giving them mostly terrible made up names for the sake of easy reference later in the post):

For each of these sites, I want to think about a few important high level considerations as it pertains to search behavior:

Hi, everybody. I am Andrew Shotland, founder of Local SEO Guide. Seems like every day, we run into multi-location and small businesses having problems with their local and organic Google rankings. My guess is you are reading this because youve got some problems of your own. So go ahead. Ask me anything!

Note to the uninitiated: This post is done in the style of a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), in which users ask questions to people who are knowledgeable about a topic. Here, our esteemed columnist is identifiedas localseoguide, who is answering questions from hypothetical inquirers.

[-] multilocomonsterbrand We grow by acquiring competitor locations. Seems like every time we do this, we kill the new locations local rankings. Doesnt exactly make for a fun honeymoon.

[-] localseoguide Hey Multiloco, rebranding a location is one of the quicker ways to tank your local rankings.

You are likely changing the name of the business and the phone number which can cause a mismatch in your NAP (Name, Address & Phone Number) across various services on the Web that Google looks at to help it figure out if it should rank the business for various queries.

Inconsistent NAP issues can lead to local ranking problems. While theres no easy way around this, we typically use the following approach when rebranding a location:

Domain Name Changes.Avoid changing your domain name (see here, here and here for why this process sucks and advice on how to do it).Do not mark your old brands GMB page as permanently closed. This can cause all sorts of problems if you cant get Google Local Support to merge it with your new brands GMB page.

Up-To-Date Business Data. Update your business data everywhere, particularly at the main citation sources and data aggregators. Terminate with extreme prejudice any old NAP listings you can find, including any old inconsistent NAP Info for the acquired location (e.g., the name it had two names ago, the phone number it had five phone numbers ago, etc.)

3. Rebranded Website. Update your business name, etc. on your website. Cant tell you how many times I have seen this one.

 Misc  Comments Off on Critiques Of Libertarianism: All links. – www.TheWorld.com …
Feb 142015
 

An ad-hominem rant by “Lazarus Long”, based on the presumption that his opponents use the same attack tactics he does. His most glaring double-speak is that he claims the arguments are strawmen, but he defends them anyway instead of disclaiming them.

My normal policy is not to engage in ad-hominem pissing matches with libertarians, but Lazarus Long has been impugning me for quite a while now. So, I’d like to set the following straight, since it illustrates his debate style. Also, this can serve as an example of how argument with him can mire you endlessly, even when he is grossly wrong.

In his FAS , he writes: Incidentally, even though this article was not written at the time of Huben’s e-mail to me, he stated “I’m hardly upset by your “refutation” or any of the other rather pathetic attempts (and yours is indeed the weakest by far.)” In other words… although the refutation had not been written, Huben miraculously claims that it is the weakest by far.

In an ad-hominem web page titled Who is Mike Huben , he writes: An example of his obsession, and lack of intellectual integrity can be seen by a visit to his “Critique of Libertarianism” site. He listed a link to my critique of his Non-Libertarian FAQ, before the critique had been written, along with a description of what was contained in the critique. A most impressive stunt, considering that the critique, not only was not on this site at the time, but hadn’t been written.

Now, I’m not known for my psychic powers: how could I have known about his document to criticize it or create a link to it?

Very simple. He had posted it (or an early version) as Huben’s FAS (Frequently Asserted Strawmen). in talk.politics.libertarian July 2, 1996. He wrote: This article will appear in full form on my webpage as http://vaxxine.com/rational/huben-bs-fas.htm within the next few weeks. I criticized his post by email, and made a link to the URL he had announced. No magic involved: I was just responding to the information he made publicly available. I’d like to know how he construes this as “obsession, and lack of intellectual integrity”.

Most of his attacks and his FAS can be similarly handled. However, responding to them just gives him more material to similarly misuse. He likes to misinterpret non-response as his own triumph over the cowardly, but I trust most readers can see that he’s a legend in his own mind.
