London, United Kingdom – May 20, 2022 – There has been a lot of discussion within the SEO community about AI-generated content and whether it violates Google’s content guidelines recently.

The guidelines were introduced to ensure that content has a strong AET, which is essentially how Google delivers the most relevant, effective and highest quality pages to internet users.

According to Google Webmaster Guidelines and Google Search Advocate John Mueller, regardless of the AI ​​tools used, AI-written content could result in a manual penalty as it is considered spam. However, Google’s systems aren’t always able to detect AI-generated content – which is why there may be practical uses for AI writing tools, and why many reputable organizations use them. for many years for automating search and cross-referencing without any problems. But, Mueller clarifies that if the spam team were to see it, they would see it as spam. So action will be taken.

So, in order to avoid being removed from search engine results and losing your organic visibility, Google advises to avoid this method for now. However, the use of AI tools for auto-generated content is nothing new and has been used for fact-checking, identifying emerging trends, and even writing full-length articles.

Speaking about this increased use of AI-generated content in the digital marketing industry, James Speyer, Senior SEO Account Strategist at The Brains, says:

“Google doesn’t and never has liked shortcuts. They’ve gone to great lengths to reduce the number of people ‘gaming’ the system, from developing more advanced methods of passing link authority to the introduction of an optimizing semantic language to stop exact match keyword spamming AI-written content is simply another way to game the system – a quick and easy way to generate pages that allow websites to produce masses of low-level content without the need for credible research or editorial standards to produce. Lots of rankings, no effort. So, although Google has no legal power to prevent webmasters from using this content, it can clearly consider it unacceptable under its guidelines, removing websites from its index if detected.This is not a perfect method, and it will not deter everyone from practicing. ue, but for companies built on search revenue, it makes the prospect of using AI to produce content much less attractive and much more risky. – James Speyer, Senior SEO Account Strategist, The Brains

Background

Bob Katter grew up in Cloncurry, North West Queensland and worked in his family’s clothing businesses as a young man before taking jobs as a laborer and mine worker.

Her father was Member Kennedy from 1966 to 1990.

Mr Katter won the state seat from Flinders in 1974 which he held until 1992 before winning the federal seat from Kennedy. It split from the National Party in 2001 and remained independent before forming Katter’s Australian Party in 2011.

Main campaign issues: cost of living, job creation, housing, water

“One of the biggest challenges here is affordable living,” Katter said.

“I think airfare is a big part of that. We really need reasonably priced airfares. And I think we need to get unions involved in that.

“Restoring our jobs is also an issue. But to get people out of here, we need places to house them.

“Major water development is underway in North Queensland and this will help boost population growth. But these projects should not be aimed at fattening the pockets of ‘cotton kings’ and foreign landowners.

“We need a land ballot system where irrigation blocks have to be allocated to the local owner-operator, owner-occupied farmers. If you live in one of these towns, you will have a chance to own the one of the blocks and you will live on the block.”

Brice Macdonald | Liberal National Party (LNP)

Background

Bryce Macdonald was born and raised in the sugar and banana growing town of Tully. He worked on farms and as a driver in the interstate trucking industry before starting an agricultural and transportation business with his brother.

He was Councilor and Deputy Mayor of Cassowary Coast Regional Council and a member of the Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Services Advisory Committee.

Main campaign issues: roads, water, housing, digital connectivity

“It’s clear that Kennedy is not getting his fair share of funding back from the federal government,” Macdonald said.

“We’re providing so many resources to the rest of the state and the country, but we’re not getting our fair share back.”

“We need someone in Canberra to push for more funding for our patch and recognize the great work that local governments are doing. It’s about working with all levels of government as a team and then d to be in Canberra and to work with the National Liberal Party which is the biggest driver of the economy.”

Jen Sackley | Independent

Independent candidate for Kennedy, Jen Sackley.(Provided: Jen Sackley)

Background

Born in Cairns, independent candidate for Kennedy Jen Sackley said much of her upbringing took place at Mount Isa. She lives in Cloncurry. A former nurse, Ms Sackley was previously North Queensland Secretary of the United Australia Party. She ran for the seat of Hinchinbrook in the last state elections and for mayor of Cairns in the 2020 municipal elections.

Top Campaign Issues: Mental Health, Political Integrity, Advocacy, Elder Care

I was involved in setting up the Selectability mental health program and in that process I saw how we let services shrink,” Ms Sackley said.

“We also need to look at the integrity of our political leaders. The whole idea that we don’t have a governing body around integrity at the federal level that has real teeth, that’s not acceptable.”

“We absolutely need more investment in defence. I come from a family of veterans and I wonder how we let our defense drop to such a low level.”

“We need to look at health, aged care, pensions – all of this together. What are we doing to our seniors?”

Jennifer Cox | The Greens

Greens candidate for Kennedy, Jennifer Cox(Provided: Jennifer Cox)

Background

Raised in the Atherton Tablelands, Jennifer Cox worked for several major marketing companies in Sydney and Brisbane before returning to her hometown to raise a family. She runs her own home-based web design and marketing business.

Main campaign issues: corporate political donations, free education, housing

“I think the main issue for me that controls a lot of other issues that we face today is corporate political donations to parties,” Ms Cox said.

“It means the Australian people have less and less say in the running of the country and the political system and degrades democracy.”

“We have to deal with the housing crisis more than anything and the Greens want to build a million houses.

“We want to make TAFE and college free to address any skills shortages, especially for doctors.”

Jason Brandon | Australian Labor Party (ALP)

It also conducts risk assessments across all of Mount Isa Mines’ mining, processing and smelting assets. He previously worked as an aircraft sheetmetal mechanic at Qantas for 13 years. He moved to the northwest in 2019.

Main campaign issues: health, housing, childcare, electricity

“We are trying to facilitate the sending of doctors to the regions,” Mr. Brandon said.

“And we’re also funding 50 Medicare urgent care clinics to help people get through the system faster.”

“We have a plan for cheaper daycare that makes it cheaper and more accessible for 96% of Australian families.”

“We also plan to upgrade the electricity grid to make it more efficient and sustainable with the goal of reducing electricity bills by $275 per year by 2025.”

“We plan to build 30,000 new social and affordable houses, including 10,000 for frontline workers like police and ambulances and stuff like that. We will also implement a national housing and homelessness plan to help people buy homes and help rough sleepers get a roof over their heads.”

Background

Peter Campion, a retired firefighter and longtime resident of North Queensland, is also the father of Vikki Campion, partner of Australian Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce.

He stood as an independent for the seat of Hill State in the 2020 election. He currently resides on an acreage in Tolga in the Tablelands region.

Main campaign issues: cost of living, national debt reduction through higher export tariffs, banking regulations

“What is going to affect Australians more and more is the rising cost of living,” Mr Campion said.

“We can approach this in a two-pronged approach.”

“First, we will wipe out our national debt by placing a 15% export license on Australian iron ore. This means it has no impact on our cost of living.”

“The second part is that we need to limit the ability of banks to force people out of their homes with rising interest rates.”

Blue Mountains Tunnel option confirmed https://a1usarealestate.com/blue-mountains-tunnel-option-confirmed/ Mon, 16 May 2022 09:34:20 +0000 https://a1usarealestate.com/blue-mountains-tunnel-option-confirmed/

The NSW Government has confirmed the 11km toll-free tunnel from Blackheath to Little Hartley as the preferred option after an extensive feasibility analysis and investigation process. This Central Trunnel option will be the longest in Australia.

“This is a historic legacy project that will provide safer and more efficient journeys for residents, tourists and goods traveling between the mid-west and the east coast,” said the deputy prime minister and Minister for Regional NSW, Paul Toole.

“In May last year, we began to study plans to join the two to create the longest road tunnel in the whole country – and today we lock this plan in as the preferred option.

“This is a complex and ambitious plan, but we are on track to have the excavators hitting the ground on the east and west stages of the upgrade early next year as we tackle building a safer and stronger road network across all parts of the state.

“The design of the Blackheath to Little Hartley tunnel features dual carriageways for eastbound and westbound motorists in separate twin tunnels and a gentler grade to reduce journey times and improve freight efficiency.”

Regional Transport and Roads Minister Sam Farraway said the Blue Mountains Tunnel would deliver a range of benefits that would transform the connection between Sydney and western New South Wales.

“This tunnel project, as part of a major upgrade of the Great Western Highway between Lithgow and Katoomba, will help improve economic development, productivity and accessibility in and across the Blue Mountains, Central West and Orana,” Mr. Farraway said.

“It will improve the resilience of the state’s main highway corridor through the Blue Mountains during traffic incidents and natural disasters and will be built to accommodate future population growth west of the Blue Mountains.

“The straighter route will improve road safety through the mountains and the tunnel will help unlock the potential of western New South Wales, benefiting all residents and businesses in this important part of the state.

“Once the full upgrade of the Great Western Highway is complete, motorists are expected to save up to 30 minutes between Katoomba and Lithgow during peak periods.

It’s time to make the Western Highway Great again and that’s exactly what this upgrade will do.

Transport for NSW will continue its consultation program with the communities of the Blue Mountains and Central West and the communities of Wiradjuri, Dharug and Gundungurra through a series of online and face-to-face information sessions on the tunnel project in the coming weeks.

Face-to-face information sessions for all community members will be held at Hartley Community Hall (Wednesday, May 18, 6-8 p.m.), Katoomba Cultural Center (Wednesday, May 25, 4:30-8 p.m.) and Blackheath Neighborhood Center (Saturday June 4, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.).

The online sessions will take place on Monday May 23 and Thursday June 9 at 6:30 p.m.

Participants can register for all sessions through the online web portal at nswroads.work/gwheastconsult.

These initial briefings precede the formal consultation which will take place later in 2022 when the environmental impact assessment of the Blackheath to Little Hartley tunnel will be set out.

At that time, the community will have another opportunity to explore the design, review the benefits and impacts of the proposal, and make formal submissions which will be responded to in a submission report.

Public improvements spurred a construction boom in Olmos Park https://a1usarealestate.com/public-improvements-spurred-a-construction-boom-in-olmos-park/ Sat, 14 May 2022 18:17:23 +0000 https://a1usarealestate.com/public-improvements-spurred-a-construction-boom-in-olmos-park/ I live in Olmos Park Terrace in an HC Thorman house. As a builder he was known for his signature on these rock houses by surmounting all exterior door and window frames with a large five-sided stone in the center and smaller pentagons on each side – usually five wide, seven s it’s a big window. and three on a small.

This house was built in 1938, and I found a few other “signatures” as I updated. The best was when the original kitchen cabinets were removed about 15 years ago. On the floor, under the sink cabinet, I found (playing cards) – an ace, king, and queen of hearts spread out in a fan like a gambler would hold them; a green marble and a 1938 nickel laid out for someone to find! Hmm, was it the cabinetmaker or maybe the plumber who left them? Unfortunately the cards fell apart and I couldn’t save them, but I will always treasure the nickel and marble! I would like to know if this has been done in other houses in the neighborhood.

—Laura A. Thomas

Last Sunday’s column looked at what appears to be a plumber’s signature (“…S. Zettner/1933”) carved in stone at the Huebner-Onion Homestead at 6613 Bandera Road in Leon Valley.

Builder Herman Charles “HC” Thorman (1884-1954, covered here July 26, 2015) was already the developer of several other parts of San Antonio, large and small, grand and modest, by the time he turned his attention to this which is now Olmos Parc. After starting in the construction business in his native Ohio and California, he “entered the home building business in San Antonio in 1907,” says his entry into Southwest Texas, a business reference published in 1952. Thorman began here as a mason; thanks to a lucky oil investment, he made rapid progress in building houses.

A few years after his arrival, he already called himself “HC Thorman, the house builder” with an office at 426 Navarro St. “I’ll build you a house anyway (,) anywhere”, he said. he announced in the San Antonio Light, November 16, 1913, “and you pay as you can.” Come in and talk about it; it will cost you nothing. He started by building small white-framed houses, one at a time, and worked his way up to neighborhoods of a few streets each and eventually to entire subdivisions.

According to an infomercial in the real estate section of the San Antonio Light, on August 18, 1940, it was in 1903 that Thorman “built his first row of cottages on Devine Street, just off South Presa”, followed by other houses on Cincinnati Avenue and Highland Park, where he built on Highland Boulevard and Kayton, Rigsby, Drexel, and Peck Avenues. He first moved north with his Country Club project on Pershing, Allensworth, Carnahan and Thorman Place and went even more upscale with his first proper housing estate.

Thanks to the Olmos Dam, built from 1925 to 1928 to control floods (and discussed here on December 8, 2011 and May 23, 2015), Thorman purchased a “large property just west of the dam… as soon as it was learned (it) would be erected,” say Char Miller and Heywood T. Sanders in “Urban Texas: Politics and Development.” The new road built through the dam connected the existing suburbs of Alamo Heights and Laurel Heights, and would “make accessible (and profitable) land that had not previously been developed” for residential use.

First advertised as Park Hill Estates in 1926, the new Olmos Park Estates would form the nucleus of a new community (now part of the independent municipality of Olmos Park). It was designed to be an exclusive enclave, with large lots, masonry requirements and ornamental iron fencing, as stated in a restrictive covenant which also prohibited non-Caucasians and set a minimum price of $7,500 for any house to be built there, although most cost considerably more.

Founded in 1927, Olmos Park Terrace is the more down-to-earth, affordable cousin of its hillier, perhaps cooler, neighbor the Estates, home to the city’s “business elite,” according to Miller and Sanders. Construction on the more popular priced subdivision between McCullough and San Pedro avenues began in 1930, and homes sold slowly until the 1934 establishment of the Federal Housing Administration, or FHA, which offered mortgage-insured loans. the federal government that made buying a home more secure and affordable with lower down payments. The homes there — built at a rate of 20 to 30 a year during the 1930s — were all built to FHA specifications (to meet required housing standards) and represent the latest in design and home building,” Thorman told The Light on May 19. 1940, the year the neighborhood expanded with the addition of El Monte and was annexed by the city of San Antonio.

A comparison of two Thorman home advertisements in the August 11, 1935 San Antonio Express highlights the two neighborhoods of Olmos. At 125 Mandalay Drive (Estates), “a fine English fieldstone home”, buyers are offered four bedrooms, 2½ baths, a “glazed porch”, a breakfast room and “servants quarters with bath”. At 257 W. Hermosa Drive (Terrace), a “new stone cottage,” there are two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a screened-in porch, for a total monthly payment of $42.50 per month “on the terms of the FHA”. (If you have to ask for the price on Mandalay Drive, you probably can’t afford it. Many of the estates’ earliest residents moved from Monte Vista, at equal elevation.)

Thorman’s terrace houses were nice too; they and the states differed more in quantity than in quality. They tended to be single-story “bungalows” rather than the two-story “mansions” of the older neighborhood.

Now a historic district, the Thorman Houses in Terrace tend to be English-style cottages built of stone veneer over reinforced concrete, as described in the Office of Historic Preservation section of the City of San Antonio website.

It’s possible that Thorman would have been okay with the workers leaving playful signs of their presence on his property.

Five of his six siblings moved to Texas with him, his great-nephew Walter D. Thorman said in a November 23, 2005 interview, and three brothers worked for him – Bill as a carpenter and August and Walter (Sr .) as salespeople, so he literally fraternized with some of his workers. He also had long relationships with contractors, particularly electrician Milton Uhr and plumber John Albert. He’s been through ups and downs on his bike – “he’s gone bankrupt several times in his career,” the young Walter said, and once paid Uhr with property instead of cash.

Thorman’s style could be laid back, even for a recurring mogul. He drove second-hand cars to better communicate with the men who worked at the construction sites he visited, and “on Saturday afternoons HC would provide a keg of beer to his workers, and they would go to the park and drink”, his grandfather said the nephew. (Thorman has been married three times and divorced twice.) He looks like someone who might not mind a hidden hand of playing cards too much.

Were the tokens of these traders therefore a tradition or a unique piece? Readers who have made similar discoveries at other houses in Olmos Terrace or other houses built by Thorman can write to this column to share their experiences of finding treasures from another era.

Triangle Strategy Review (for Nintendo Switch) https://a1usarealestate.com/triangle-strategy-review-for-nintendo-switch/ Fri, 13 May 2022 17:54:45 +0000 https://a1usarealestate.com/triangle-strategy-review-for-nintendo-switch/

Subtle and sublime are the descriptors that best match the $59.99 Triangle strategy. Subtle, as the strategy RPG’s highly accessible gameplay elements, impeccable balance, and narrative integration aren’t immediately apparent. Sublime, as the sum of its parts elevates the game, producing one of the finest titles for the Nintendo Switch. On top of that, excellent combat, gripping story facets, and divergent campaign routes keep you enthralled for over 50 hours of gameplay. It’s just a shame Triangle Strategy has such a mundane name, because the game is anything but.


talk between houses

Triangle Strategy is set in a realm called Norzelia and focuses on three realms – Glenbrook, Aesfrost, and Hyzante – which form the titular Triangle. These nations have formed an alliance after the devastating Saltiron War, but the armistice falters as the game begins. You assume the role of Serenoa Wolffort, heiress to the most important house of Glenbrook and friend to the prince of the kingdom, Roland. It doesn’t take much for the powder keg to ignite, and what follows is a winding political adventure that touches on religious manipulation, manufactured fear, discrimination and the ignorance of a generation alienated from ravages of war. These themes come through in the varied combat situations; rich playable characters; and branching, player-influenced story.

Our experts have tested 23 Nintendo games category products over the past year

Since 1982, PCMag has tested and reviewed thousands of products to help you make better buying decisions. (Read our editorial mission.)

At key moments in the story, you’ll find situations that force you to make a critical choice. It’s not as simple as simply selecting the appropriate text box; your party also has its own interest in the decisions. You influence party members by talking to them, sharing information you’ve learned from exploring, or reasoning with them based on their personality. The story diverges depending on who votes for you, so Triangle Strategy has surprising replay value. The story can change and pivot significantly based on these decisions, which in turn depend on what you’ve learned through the story. This gives you a surprising capacity for action, because you feel like you are establishing real relationships and making decisions for those around you.

Make decisions, big and small, for the fate of the kingdom.

Between combat and story scenarios, you can explore the scenic locations or watch events unfold in other regions that affect other factions. Still, the story exclusively follows Serenoa and her house, which keeps the plot concise. There’s a lot of dialogue in this story-driven game: when you’re not making decisions, you’re watching lots of cutscenes. This is especially true early in the game, when Triangle Strategy is still establishing its world and characters. This makes the pacing a bit slow, especially if you just want to move guys around on a grid. The action picks up as the plot progresses, but this slowness does not entirely dissipate.


Take up arms

Conflict is inevitable, and once the wheels of war begin to turn, Serenoa and her team must navigate increasingly difficult and dangerous skirmishes to progress. Combat is a standard turn-based affair, at first glance. You can take 10 units into battle, configure their position on the map and use their special attacks and abilities to eliminate the enemy threat. The grid-based maps are reminiscent of the maps you find in Final Fantasy Tactics and Fire Emblem. Triangle Strategy shakes things up by adding additional layers of mechanics to this standard combat framework, while also giving you a suite of tools to create enlightened stratagems on the fly, making encounters thoroughly engaging and addictive, yet still devilishly difficult.

Triangle Strategy offers a simulation mode at the start of the round. This allows you to play moves without committing to them, so you can see the damage they will do. Like Fire Emblem, Triangle Strategy has brightly colored grids that indicate movement and attack ranges, so you can clearly and easily see what each unit is capable of delivering in battle.

Simple but effective visuals.

You will rely on all the classes offered by the game, thanks to the excellent gameplay balance of Triangle Strategy. Roland, for example, is a cavalry unit with excellent range. His spear attacks have a massive range that spans two tiles in front of him, essentially allowing him to hit two targets in one turn. Anna, on the other hand, is a highly mobile assassin who can scale any elevation with her special ability, backstab for critical damage, and go untargeted for multiple turns. Each unit you recruit has unique abilities and perks, and all of them are incredibly useful.

Unique terrain features enrich combat. Height gives units an attack advantage, so archers who rain down arrows from above are incredibly powerful. Special abilities can create unique combos or environmental hazards. For example, you can set a tile on fire with fire magic, then trigger a wind-based ability or spell to spread the fire in your favor. There are many combinations like this in the game, which really opens up the strategy.

Triangle Strategy is generous with information. Hovering over a tile shows which enemies can attack it, for example, minimizing the chances of a stubborn decision that could cost you the unit, or potentially the battle. The game even suggests party members to take with you into battle and lets you buy supplies or rank up units before heading into a proper battle. These are wonderful and very practical advantages, but they do not diminish the overall challenge.

Gorgeous visuals and accessible action.

As your roster and abilities grow, so do the challenges each scenario presents. A fight might limit you to a heavy platforming stage with spike-riddled traps, for example. A later step may land you on a set of highly flammable tiles. Another can put you in a tough battle, where you fight a gauntlet of enemies as you make your way to the top. The combat experience is excellent. The only real missed opportunity is the lack of touchscreen controls. As a Nintendo Switch title, I wish it had selected and moved units with the touchpad when playing the game undocked. Triangle Strategy is fine without them, but the feature would be extremely handy when playing on the go.


Classic visuals, modern aesthetic

I’m a big fan of the high definition 2D look used by Triangle Strategy, already seen in Octopath Traveler. The sets are packed with detail, despite their seemingly pixelated facade. Each colorful diorama has eye-catching visuals to match the deliberately dated sprite work, like the soft glow of light from windows at night, the shimmer of running water, or the slight flutter of fabric in the wind.

Likewise, the music is fantastic and dynamic, to boot. The orchestral score matches the flow of battle, so it’s triumphant and upbeat when you’re in the lead, and much more dramatic and dire when the going’s dark.

Triangle Strategy runs at 30 frames per second on Nintendo Switch, and the frame rate remains fairly consistent throughout the game. but this is not too frequent, fortunately.


A winning strategy

Triangle Strategy is an engaging strategy RPG with top-notch combat, an engaging story, and a huge cast of characters to familiarize yourself with as you determine the fate of Norzelia. The story scenes and dialogue-heavy interludes can slow the pace of the game, which can make the game feel like a drag if you’re not enthralled with the plot. On the other hand, if you’re engrossed in the story, the decision-driven plot and excellent characterization are a huge plus. Combined with excellent combat mechanics and charming visuals, Triangle Strategy delivers a winning formula and easily stands alongside established franchises such as Fire Emblem, Disgaea, and Final Fantasy Tactics.
