Google algorithm

there is a new Google algorithm
There is a new Google algorithm.  Here is what I have heard is now the Google algorithm.  I have nothing to confirm this is correct, but you can have a look for yourself.

(Kw Usage Score * 0.3) + (Domain * 0.25) + (blackmail photos of any Google executives*.95)+(PR Score * 0.25) + (pictures of near naked, but not completely naked women*.015)+(Inbound Link Score * 0.25) + (User Data * 0.1) + (Content Quality Score * 0.1) + (mention of the words SEO and how to make money online*.01)+(Manual Boosts) - mention of the words "Bing" or "Facebook")

There you have it.  I hope this Search Engine Optimization (SEO) tip helps you internet marketers out there. The new Google algorithm should help decrease content farms, pig farms and give a direct karate kick to the face of Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg.  Hhhhyah!

Buying health insurance

I am glad I soon will be buying health insurance from the company I recently started working with.  Group rates make useful insurance doable.  Unfortunately buying private health insurance means paying lots of money for very little coverage in return.

My Doctor if I do not get company insurance soon
When I had a plan with Blue Cross Blue Shield I was paying close to $150.00 a month for coverage with a $5,000 deductible a year.  That was with me being fairly young (not in my 20s anymore, but not near 40 either), good weight, no smoking or drinking habits, no drug habits and no chronic health problems.    If I actually needed something other than a lung transplant the only doctor I would be able to afford to see is a Hooter's girl who practiced medicine on the side when not lifeguarding for the summer.  Seriously!

Why did I get the insurance you ask? It would be good were I to have some major accident or something.  So I will not say it was all bad.  Still, it was not something I could use for a regular doctor's visit if I had the flu or something like that.

I have heard many politicians say joining collectives would allow individuals the ability to pull their buying power together as a group (these same politicians are against unions though, hmmn).  Unfortunately I was unable to find one of these collectives.  They sound good in theory, but without a company behind them I have not found one that actually exists.

Another thing I read was that interstate laws for insurance needed to be broken up so insurers could sell across state lines. Why that would drive the prices down.  Unfortunately many of the same insurance companies, i.e. Blue Cross Blue Shield, operate in many states, just under different sub companies.  Therefore I am not so sure prices would be affected much.  Even when there are several choices of private insurance companies in a given state the prices are about what I mentioned previously.  Apparently those who think the private sector can always work everything out with deregulation (and before you think I am some socialist, I believe in the basics of the free market, but also believe it needs supervision unfortunately) forget the one big flaw with capitalism - collusion.

Sure one insurance company could suddenly drop prices and try to gain more market hold, but then the other companies would soon follow and then they would all be making less.  That or the other companies would dig up dirt and use their lobbyists to have that company buried.    After all, you do not see Sony undercutting the cost of Compact Discs versus the other CD manufacturers.  Nope.  Heck, in the music industry though they are separate companies, they get to meet as a group called the Recording Industry of America (RIAA).  Convenient isn't it?

So I guess what I am saying, is if all these so called conservatives really want people to go out there and start up their own individual businesses, they better find a way for these people to get individual insurance that is worth a darn and does not cost a fortune.  There simply has got to be a better way to buy health insurance.  Real health insurance!

Charlie Sheen - high on life...or coke

Charlie Sheen recently said he was high on life.  I guess "life" is a new way of saying cocaine, meth, heroine or some other sort of narcotic.  I think he is too classy for meth or heroine though.  No sir, none of that low street grade crap for Charlie.  Pure Colombian snow though? Certainly.  Only the finest for Mr. Sheen.

Then again maybe "life" means the feeling you get from smacking around a hooker.  Yes, that's it!
Charlie Sheen partying

Or better yet, perhaps it means both.  There you go! Charlie was high on some coke, slapping hoes, putting them in their place, and to him, that is what "life" is all about.

No, there has to be more.  Hmm...okay, high? Check.  Hooker...err, I mean escort? Check.

Now what else? Oh, I know, he was also downing a bottle of champagne.  Gots to have to have the champagne to celebrate.  What next?  Oh yes, a donkey. Why not? Every good party needs a donkey.  One donkey and female performer to go along with said donkey? Check.

So Charlie was powdering his nose, sipping on some Delphine Boutier, when some low class call girl stepped in his view of the Donkey Show, then, POW, he had to pop her one to put her into place.  She awoke the sleeping giant.  She better check herself before she wrecks herself.  Anyways, it all makes sense now.

So you see, Charlie Sheen really was high on life.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker - right or a douche?

What does everyone think of the Wisconsin governor, Scott Walker, right about now?

Do you agree with his battle with public workers or think he is union busting on behalf of rich corporate fat cats such as David Koch?

Leave me feedback.  Thanks.

Justin Bieber sucks

Justin Bieber sucks.

That is right.  Justin Bieber sucks lollipops, suckers and sweet tarts.

Oh, and when his throat is hurting he sucks lemons and honey, Halls and Sucrets.

When his breath is kickin' he sucks on Mintos, Tic Tacs and Altoids.

Tony Goldwyn - is he always the bad guy?

Is it just me or is Tony Goldwyn always the bad guy? I can name three just off the top of my head:

  1. Ghost - plays Carl, who betrays his best friend Sam (Patrick Swayze) and tries to get with Sam's wife Molly..mmmm...Molly (Demi Moore)
  2. The 6th Day - plays..ummm...I forgot, and it is not really worth looking up..some evil dude, who gives Arnold Schwarzenegger's character (also too lazy to look up) a reason to kick butt, as usual.
  3. The Mechanic (remake) - plays Dean, who betrays a long time business partner and tries to get with..oh, no wait, he did not try to get with anybody's wife, but gives Arthur Bishop (Jason Stathom) a reason to kick butt, as usual.

Granted I have not seen lots of movies or shows he has been in, but when I have seen him he has been the bad guy, or in the case of the remake of Last House on the Left, he was not the bad guy, but he was still had a mean streak to him (understandably so for the character I suppose).

I wonder if directors just look at this guy and go, "Gee, this guy gives me the creeps.  I am gonna cast him as the bad guy," or perhaps, "Wow, I can just look at this guys and picture 'jerk.' Quick! Somebody have him read the part of the guy who betrays his best friend for some money."  That or he is just not good looking enough to cast as a good guy.  Who really knows.

Any actors or actresses that you always seem to see portraying a villain?

High search engine ranking optimization

This blog is about high search engine ranking optimization.

Search engine rank optimization is very important for today's bloggers, especially those who do not have much of an advertising budget.  To traffic to grow organically some things fellow bloggers can do:
high search engine ranking optimization
  1.  Keywords tool - use a keyword analysis tool, such as the Google's Adword Keyword Tool. Find combination of words to form key phrases that show will bring some traffic, but not so much that it will bury your page in the search engines' results.
  2. Keyword placement - Place one of your best keyphrases in your title.
  3. Search engine copywriting - Place some other related keyphrases in your text near the top of your blog entry.
  4.  Asset tags and labels - If your blog allows tags or labels, use more of your keyword phrases, or some of the previous ones here as well.
  5. Optimizing graphics - Add images to your blog. Make sure that they have captions containing the best keywords.  Image placement is also important.

The Rock back on Monday Night Raw

The Rock was back on WWE Monday Night Raw and he is still the most electrifying man in entertainment.

In front of the millions, and millions of the Rock's fans, the Brama Bull, the Great One,  the jabroni beatin', pie eating, trail-blazin', eyebrow raisin' People's Champ said he is finally back.

The Rock returns to host this year's Wrestlemania.  Not only that, but he has called out The Miz and John Cena.  He said what many in the crowd already knew, that since the days of "Austin 3:16" and "If you smell what the Rock is cooking", the WWE has been lame.

It took long enough, but finally, the Rock has come back home.

Guitar Hero gone

Guitar Hero franchise is finished
RIP Guitar Hero!

The hit video game franchise has ended. For anyone who likes to play Guitar Hero this is a sad day, but one we knew would inevitably come.

With the copy cat games, along with so many Guitar Hero games themselves, the trend was bound to grow old quickly.

Now if only there were no more new Zelda games.

Egypt latest news

Mubarak resigns - Egypt's new ruler
Cario - Egypt has a new leader.  Hosni Mubarak has stepped down.

After Mubarak resigned many have wondered who would take control.  The answer now seems clear.

The new group taking control had heavy influence on the nation during its long history, but in recent years has largely been out of the spotlight.  They felt the time was right to step in and make their presence known once again.

The new rulers wasted little time in getting to work. The first order of business was to change the national anthem, to the popular 80's dance tune, Egypt, Egypt, by the Egyptian Lover.

They were also scouting new land for possible annexation.  Footage can be seen here.

More to come as the news breaks.

Keith Olbermann move puzzling

I wonder if Keith Olbermann left MSNBC on his own or was pushed out.

Keith Olbermann fired
Though MSNBC was not a powerhouse in the ratings, it dwarfs Current TV.

Of course Olbermann was one of the more popular draws on the now Comcast owned cable network may have fired him, though nothing is real clear as to if they did or gave him some ultimatums about his show.

Does he think he can really make a difference with an audience of less than 25,000? Perhaps Olbermann believes his addition will get Current TV picked up by more cable companies.  As left leaning as MSNBC is though, they are not headed by Al Gore.  Plus they have the power of NBC behind them.  Thus I do not see Olbermann helping Current TV going big time.

If anything, I think this move may bury Olbermann for now.  At least until he realizes it is a mistake and takes a bigger contract elsewhere.  He might realize it is not a big move and just be trying to keep his name out there for now.  Only he really knows.  Personally, I think he should get back to sports and leave the political talk to others.  That is probably just me though.

Was Ronald Reagan a great President

Was Ronald Reagan a great President?

That is a question I pose. I would like whoever reads this to share their opinions about why or why not.

Ronald Reagan Presidency
Do you believe he helped end the Soviet threat of spreading communism and bring down the Berlin wall, yes or no?

Do you believe the Iran-Contra Affair marred his Presidency and should have caused him to be impeached?

Was he a great communicator or great manipulator?

Did his negotiating with terrorists and raising taxes contradict the legend many have created for him?

Please share your thoughts.

Packers win Super Bowl 31- 25

Packers win Super Bowl
 Dallas - The Green Bay Packers have just won the Super Bowl.
Well not really! Not yet anyways.

I predict the Packers will win won Super Bowl 45 though, 31-17 25.  Pittsburgh will give gave them a fight.  Green Bay will pull away by a two score lead and hold hung on in the second half though.

Movie remakes I would like to see

Hollywood loves remakes.  Sometimes they turn out nearly as good, or even better than the original.  Often times they fail to be as good though.  Below are some movies I would like Hollywood remake.

Valley Girl - I know, I know, it will be hard to replace Nicholas Cage, but it can be done.  There are still some good young actors and actresses out there.  It is just hard for casting directors to find them when they focus so hard on model good looks for every role.  Times have changed since this film came out, and it is definitely starting to look dated.  I was tempted to put Fast Times at Ridgemont High on the list, but unlike VG, it would require replacing more than just one good actor, and not sure it could be pulled off as well.

Revenge of the Nerds - Again, finding capable people today of giving life to the characters could be a question mark, but this definitely needs to be brought into the modern age.  Just think of all the nerdy things that have come around since 1983 that they could make fun of.

Used Cars - Kurt Russell was great, but I think if you put someone like a Vince Vaughn or even Callard Harris from TBS's Glory Daze in there and polish it with some new tweaks it could turn out well.  It was pretty wild for its time, so now they could amp it up even more. Besides, it is not considered a classic by most so there would be few who complain about this one being redone, and even if there were, Hollywood would care less, as usual.

Re-Animator - since there seems to be a lack of originality lately, the least they could do is remake some crazier films than Halloween and Friday the 13th. Those slasher films gain little by remakes, but movies that have dated special effects might be worth the effort.

Cannibal Ferox, aka Make Them Die Slowly - The original had no deep redeeming values so no one should care if it is redone.  They could find, or at least try to find, ways to make it more gruesome.

Poltergeist -  If you think this is untouchable, watch it again.  You will definitely notice it is slow paces, and nothing thrilling by today's standards.  This one would need changes to the story to keep today's audiences captivated unfortunately.

Clash of the Titans - Just think how great this could be with modern day special effects really being pushed to the limit, and keeping true to the original screenplay...oh wait, they already remade this, and did not keep true to the old film.  No, instead they thought Perseus should have a crew cut, be like a bull headed action figure like any other action movie. At least they salvaged it with their 3-D version...oh, no, that is right.  That screwed that up too.

Police Academy -  I am not sure if this one, like Poltergeist, just doesn't seem as great by comparison to what has come out since, or if the jokes were lame even back then.  I was a child when I saw it after all.  Still, I think they could somehow remake this into something new.

Nightmare on Elm Street - see Clash of the Titans above

What are some movies you would like to see remade? What changes would you like to see done, if any and what actors/actresses would you possibly like to see in the main roles?

Kim Kardashian silver paint cover

Kim Kardashian was upset over some photo of her that shows a nipple and butt crack.  Wait, isn't there a home made sex tape of here floating around out there?
Kim Kardashian silver picture
Later she came out proud of the pictures? Maybe she is bipolar.  

Kim needs to relax.  I mean millions of males across the world would line up to tap that. A few funny looking photos is not going to take that away from her.  She is still a strong object of sexual desire.

As for respect, well she had nothing to lose there to begin with.  Kim, we never respected you to begin with.  We still want to play tune in Tokyo with you though, and one out of two ain't bad.
