    By Serhat Pala Most of us begin our days by checking for messages on Twitter, Facebook or Snapchat. Then we end our days posting updates and catching up with friends and family on Facebook and the other social media networks. Over 54 percent of Americans use social media on a daily basis. Some users check their accounts more than 10 times per day, according to data from Deloitte. But social media is not just Facebook. While Facebook still rules the roost, social media comes in all shapes and sizes: From photo and video sharing sites to social bookmarking to instant messaging to social…

    With the good comes the bad, and in business this means dealing with difficult customers every now and again. Often, this is due to things you cannot avoid, such as a shipping issue that a third party has immediate control over or a vendor item defect that you had no idea existed. Other times this may be a direct response to something you or someone from your company did - including responses to your behavior, communication or lack of it. Either way, the tips below can help navigate the drama some difficult customers may deliver.

  • Doomed Air Algerie Flight Asked to Turn Back Before Crash

    Shortly before ground controllers lost contact with Air Algerie Flight 5017, the airliner’s crew requested to abandon its journey to Algiers and head back to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, eyeing foul weather on the radar. The plane crashed in a remote corner of Mali shortly thereafter, killing all 118 passengers and crew members onboard. Its black box flight recorders arrived in Paris on Monday, AFP reports, offering investigators insight into the July 24 tragedy — the third airline disaster in just over a week, coming after the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over the Ukraine and…

    (DAKAR, Senegal) — No one knows for sure just how many people Patrick Sawyer came into contact with the day he boarded a flight in Liberia, had a stopover in Ghana, changed planes in Togo, and then arrived in Nigeria, where authorities say he died days later from Ebola, one of the deadliest diseases known to man. Now health workers are scrambling to trace those who may have been exposed to Sawyer across West Africa, including flight attendants and fellow passengers. Health experts say it is unlikely he could have infected others with the virus that can cause victims to bleed from the eyes,…
  • Family of Georgia Teen Found Dead at School Files New Lawsuit

    The family of a Georgia teenager found dead in his high school gymnasium last year has sued school officials, accusing them of ignoring patterns of harassment that some believe culminated in his murder. On Jan. 11, 2013, a group of students at Lowndes High School in the south Georgia town of Valdosta discovered the body of Kendrick Johnson rolled up in an exercise mat in the school gymnasium. His death, local police investigators determined, was an accident — he had climbed into the center of the mat to fetch a shoe and got stuck — but his parents, Kenneth and Jacquelyn Johnson, were not…

    Russia is violating a treaty that bans medium-range missiles, the U.S. has stated, adding further tension to a relationship already strained by Moscow’s backing of separatists in Ukraine. “This is a very serious matter which we have attempted to address with Russia for some time now,” an administration official told TIME. “We encourage Russia to return to compliance with its obligations under the Treaty and to eliminate any prohibited items in a verifiable manner.” The revelation comes as U.S. and European leaders agreed Monday to impose wider sanctions on Russia’s…

    When I was a kid, I had a pretty clear vision of the future. And all of my ideas about what the future would hold came directly from television and movies. Perhaps I wasn’t a terribly imaginative child … but I digress. I figured we’d all have flying cars, a la the Jetsons, by the time I was grown. And I figured kids of the future would ride hover boards instead of boring old skateboards. TV and movies also gave me the impression that we’d all have a lot more robots in our lives. I, personally, was looking forward to fewer chores thanks to my own Rosie. While I haven’t heard much in…

    I had a realization while looking at photos taken on a recent cross-country road trip to Oregon. There were typical “standing happily next to road sign” photos, some “standing looking not-so-happy next to cars loaded down with luggage” photos, and, I’m ashamed to admit, more than one photo of me and my 19-year-old niece standing (or sitting) side by side, both staring at our iPhones. I guess you could say we’re both addicted. I’m not rude about it—at least, I don’t think I am. I don’t keep my phone on the dinner table. I don’t glaze over and scroll through my phone when…
  • The Real Truth About SEO Success

    15 Jul 2014 | 12:32 pm
    Let’s be honest, on the ladder of trustworthiness, search engine consultants fall somewhere between lawyers and members of Congress. But nobody seeks us out at parties for our stories or makes Netflix shows set in the world of SEO. No, instead you have two choices when it comes to SEO. You’re either the nerdy Poindexter, sitting alone at his computer, muttering about meta descriptions and H1 tags, or worse, a snake oil salesman, promising the world that if you’ll just spend thousands of dollars on some magic formula that never quite seems to be finished, you’ll win the Internet.

But hard as it was to watch, they deserve our attentionYou might think the timing of Children of Syria (BBC2) is unfortunate, given that the world's focus right now is on the children of another conflict, a little to the south. Not a bit of it. This simply further rams home the terrible, terrible sadness of children caught up in conflict. A "war on childhood", Lyse Doucet, the BBC's chief international correspondent, calls the war in Syria, though she might easily be…
