Labeling women as crazy



I hate when men call women crazy. I hate when women call other women crazy. First, if we were suffering from mental illnesses, the term “crazy” would be insensitive. As we’re not, it’s just wrong.

It’s a way of saying: You have emotions and that scares me. You’re acting in a way that I cannot control, which makes me uncomfortable, so I’m just going to dismiss you by calling you crazy.

Crazy is so convenient. When you break up with someone, you don’t have to go into the nuanced complexities of the relationship. Nah, just say she’s crazy.

In my conversations with men, they never call their current girlfriends or love interests crazy. It's always the woman who gets this title after things turn sour.

Sometimes women turn into complete lunatics when dealing with the wrong guy, and there was always a common denominator in all of their situations.

All we want is for men to actually listen when we talk and to make an effort to please us.

Women may talk a lot, but none of our words are fruitless. There is truly a message behind our madness.

"Crazy" is defined as senseless, impractical and completely unsound actions — and that does not describe our outbursts.

The Five Deadly Words

There are certain words that are applied to women specifically in order to manipulate them into compliance: “Slut”, “Bitch”, “Ugly/Fat” and of course, “Crazy”. These words encapsulate what society defines as the worst possible things a woman can be. Slut-shaming is used to coerce women into restricting their own sexuality into a pre-approved vision of feminine modesty and restraint. “Bitch” is used against women who might be seen as being too aggressive or assertive… acting, in other words, like a man might. “Ugly” or “Fat” are used – frequently interchangeably – to remind them that their core worth is based on a specific definition of beauty, and to deviate from it is to devalue not only oneself but to render her accomplishments or concerns as invalid.

“Crazy” may well be the most insidious one of the four because it encompasses so much. At its base, calling women “crazy” is a way of waving away any behavior that men might find undesirable while simultaneously absolving those same men from responsibility. Why did you break up with her? Well, she was crazy. Said something a woman might find offensive? Stop being so sensitive.

Women are not crazy. I'm not in denial or defending absurd actions. I just think there's a more accurate word.

"Annoyed" is fitting. "Peeved" is even better. Crazy, though? Absolutely not.

Michelle Obama launches #62girls campaign


First Lady Michelle Obama said getting girls educated is the key to solving many of the world’s ills, lamenting the 62 million girls worldwide who are unable to go to school.

“For me, this is personal. When I think about those 62 million girls that aren’t in school, I think about myself. I think about my daughters,” Obama said at an event at Harlem’s Apollo Theater Tuesday hosted by Glamour magazine. I see myself in these girls. I see my daughters in these girls. These girls are our girls, and I simply can't walk away from them. So for me, this is truly a moral issue.

“If we want to end global poverty, if we want to improve the plight of our country, educating girls is the key to all of that. It just is.”


And Obama offered plenty of personal advice for the audience of American high school girls on getting through the travails of being a teenager - focus on school, don’t sweat the small stuff, and don’t go for boys who are “too stupid” to appreciate a smart woman.

“There is no boy at this age that is cute enough or interesting enough to stop you from getting your education,” said Obama, who recounted commuting three hours a day by bus to go to a public magnet high school in her native Chicago.

“If I had worried about who liked me and who thought I was cute when I was your age, I wouldn’t be married to the President of the United States.”

5 Techniques to get you prepared for the future of SEO

Techniques You Need to Know to Prepare you for the Future of Seo 

Change is inevitable and apart of our everyday evolution to become better, smarter individuals in our society.  The forever changing internet world is no different than the world in which we live and is subject to rules that will never change such as gravity, our need for oxygen, and water. Search Engines have been updated with new algorithms to safe guard spam and help people to find exactly what they are looking for online quicker and easier.  No one knows what the future is, but there are certain Techniques that will still apply in SEO that will reign supreme in the coming years over the outdated techniques that will become obsolete in the upcoming algorithm updates. 

After working with hundreds of customers, building their brand, social media presence, and optimizing their website content, our Tech contributor, Gerald Long II CEO of AdsManagerPro has created a list of 5 Techniques that he believes will still determine your rank in search engines in 10 years or more. 

1. Super Content 
    Its called Super Content cause its supposed to be high quality and stronger than normal content than most people post on similar subjects. You want to make sure you content is engaging and offers learning material for your readers so they can grow with your business and learn from you.  You’ll get more visitors and (CTR) click through rate will be higher with higher quality content. If running running ads on your website this will generate more revenue.

    The SEO reason for Super Content is you need it to rank higher in the search engines based on clicks, searches, shares, and overall engagement with your content. The more people who engage with your content the higher it will rank regardless of how many black hat seo tricks they use one spam sites you will over come them in the algorithm changes, and its best not to focus solely on getting to the number 1 search rank slot but for you to make sure your content is searchable and delivers high quality content to your customers to build loyal customer base. 

2. Keywords
    Without being descriptive enough about your content and what its about will lead Super Content to being overlooked by your customers. There are better descriptive words that can be used to drive more search traffic and return visitors to your website.  When your building your website make sure you use the best keyword to describe the url link so that search engines will display your website in searches.  The keywords used in the content can also have a great impact on your CTR and drive more traffic to your website.
Using the wrong keywords will do the opposite, and bury your website urls and blog posts under the spam sites where no one can find them in the searches.  If this happens you’ll waste more money trying to build your SEO and your website will become ineffective in searches. 
3. Optimize Website 
    Websites have the same principals as a textbook of information in which there are table of contents, foreword, chapters, sections, and appendix sections to help people find what they want to read in the book better. To optimize your website build it like a textbook, and create a sitemap (table of contents) which labels all the pages (chapters) links and contents (sections) for people to easily navigate the website. Search Engine crawlers is what search engines like Google use to find content and determine what’s on a website to optimize the search. It will read your website like a table of contents and rank it based on engagement and clicks/shares to determine if the information is important to its readers before the post search results.  Make sure your url are in order on a sitemap and organize your website so you can gain more visitors and traffic leading to sales. 

4. Social Media Presence 
    It should be obvious but if you don’t have a social media presence your not going to have anyway to share your Super Content to. Your website needs an audience, just like a movie release needs moviegoers. Try to research and learn more about which social media services will help your business the most before you build your social media platform, but optimize it by adding your website link (back linking) back to your website which will create social media traffic. Each followers or like you receive can see your future posts about your content and decide to click to learn more about your business. Services like AdsManagerPro can help you grow your social media presence so that your rank will rise based on CTR and engagement.  People tend to trust services with higher follower rates or at least social media platforms with high engagement. You don’t want to lose business, because your social media account looks brand new or unprofessional. 

5. Google Webmaster Tools and Analytics
    Google Offers Free tools to help businesses, brands, and individuals build better websites using keyword search, term search, and many more SEO tools.  Keyword Research will help you find the best words to use in your blog posts, or content used on your website which will build your search rank higher.  Using Google Analytics will help you with choosing demographics for who to target your SEM when you incorporate paid advertisements into your SEO strategy. If a lot of your traffic is coming from a different area then intended you can make adjustments with your social media campaign to grow customers in the areas you actually want business. Its also helpful in keeping up with the CTR and return visitor traffic and also how long they are visiting your pages for to learn ways to keep them engaged longer.

    It’s a lot of work to keep your SEO rank high on search engines when algorithms change every few months. Utilizing these 5 Techniques will put you ahead of the spam killing updates and allow your site to benefit from the updates instead of suffer. If you have trouble with building your Social Media presence or SEO for your website reach out to to gain expert assistance and also check out their blog for tips on specific SEO topics that may help you in your DIY webmaster project.

Coca-Cola removes logo to encourage people not to judge each other

Coke has removed the logos from its packaging in the Middle East to encourage people not to judge each other


Coke wants to encourage people not to judge one another based on their appearance.


coke labels writing

The group members are then asked to reach under their chairs, where they pull out the Coke cans and their "Labels for cans" messaging.


In a statement, Coca-Cola explains the thinking behind the campaign: "In a time when equality and abolishing prejudices is a hot topic for discussion around the world, how does one of the leading brands like Coca-Cola join in the conversation? In the Middle East, during the month of Ramadan, one of the world's most well-known labels has removed its own label, off its cans, in an effort to promote a world without labels and prejudices."

The Middle East campaign ties in with Coke's global "Let's take an extra second" push, which encourages people to forget stereotypes and take the time to get to know people better.

Who says you can't get a second chance at life?  Hip Hop artist, Antonio Taylor who is better known as Eastside Boobie  is getting just that after experiencing all the hard knocks of growing up on the Eastside of Louisville.  Raised from the concrete of the Clarksdale Projects, Boobie always had a bigger dream than what Louisville could contain.  Despite the fact that he had a troublesome childhood he never lost sight of the bigger picture. After making a few wrong decisions that took him off his path, Boobie is now trying to show other young kids from the streets that they can rise despite their obstacles. "Im out here grinding and trying to make it cause I have to.  There is no other option or path for me, says Boobie  "Im really focused and learning from the mistakes that I've made being .  in the streets Ive lost friends in the game and I know what future I want and don't want.  I'm still affected by my friend Arlin White who got killed and I hope I can show people a different path.  Boobie's close friend, Whisper also got shot and is now permantely blind. "I've seen it all and I just want to be in a position to allow my music to take care of the people I love and care about. I want others to see there's more to life than the difficult times we experience." Boobie  is putting Louisville on the music map with his popular song "Had to"  featuring Ice WearVezzo.  "I was dealt with these cards for a reason and I'm going to make it anyway."     


SEO vs SEM? Which benefits your small business more.

So you have a small business but are not sure how to drive traffic to your website and business.  You probably aren't a techie and overlooked smart guys so you don't have someone you can call up to explain the difference between SEO vs. SEM but you need to know which benefits your business more. Well top SEO Specialist, Gerald Long ll is here to help and answer your question.


Which could Benefit your Small Business More? SEO or SEM?

SEO (search engine optimization) is similar to SEM (search engine marketing) in respect to how they help your business, but both have very different strategies in approach to how they are used to grow your business. 

In SEO we focus on driving organic traffic to your search results, whereas SEM is paid search result traffic from the search engines. Theres several debates on which is best for your business and I’ll explain a few differences and how they can differ in your marketing goals.

Both are good for attracting customers. SEO focuses on what the Search Engines are looking for to be inlined with their search results, Google and Bing focus on delivering results with TOP quality content with easy to navigate sites for quality search users.
SEM is more of a focus on quick paid advertisments and bidding on keywords in the search to help traffic find their way to your website.

When your business is utilizing both of these strategies simultaneously you find the best results, but there are still things to watch out for as a small business using either strategy.

TIP # 1 for SEO

The Google search engines and competitiors change their algorithms (which are the calculations that drive the engine) constantly causing SEO strategies not to perform as well. Throughout time you have to continuously adjust your strategy to make your page have high rank, and waiting too long to keep up with these changes, your page will fall 4-5 pages or more behind the competition.

TIP # 2  for SEM

The keyword Advertisements are constantly being sold to the highest bidder, and depending on current events certain days your bidding can be to low to gain traffic, or worse raise your lowest bids to a price non cost effective for your business costing you unexpected expenses which could damage your marketing budget. These price movements need to be monitored at all times to ensure your getting the best effective search results, and bidding price to keep your page in way of traffic.

SEO vs. SEM whichever you choose to use has to be balanced for the best results, and understanding how they both work will help in deciding which is best for the growth of your small business.

Dr Neha Patha researched urine test for HPV works well



Dr Neha Pathak led a team of researchers who discovered that many strains of HPV (the Human Papillomavirus which has been prove to lead to cervical cancer) can be discovered through a simple urine test. Currently 900 women a year die in the UK from cervical cancer. Her breakthrough research means that more women will opt in to regular testing, reducing the mortality rate. She was the rightful winner of Cosmopolitans ‘Ultimate Game-changer’ at their Women’s Awards 2014. Her work has also helped encourage more women to pursue science as a career.

A simple urine test can routinely spot human papillomavirus (HPV), which is linked to the risk of cervical cancer, a new analysis found.

"Our study shows that testing urine for HPV has good accuracy when compared to testing samples taken from the cervix for HPV," said lead researcher Dr. Neha Pathak. She is a resident in obstetrics and gynecology and research fellow at Queen Mary University of London, England.

The test could be done at home, and then interpreted by medical professionals, Pathak added.
