Why Everyone Should have a Website







We the team at JarusHub are passionate about the Internet and over time have demonstrated that we have not just interest but capacity to make a positive impact online.


However, we know that we cannot chase all the ideas by ourselves and implement them. Therefore, we got thinking: “what can we do to help many people especially the youths to begin to take advantage of opportunities online”?

Then it hit us, we should create a domain registration and hosting platform that is simplified and allows flexible payment plans with top-notch customer service.

This is our motivation for creating Hostdey.com, we believe every individual should own at least one domain –as a personal website to promote yourself as a brand, a personal or business blog or at the very least a website for your business.

Having an email address and phone number is not good enough these days. People want to see your digital footprint and there are fewer ways to achieve this than to have your own website.

So, whether it is a .com .ng .biz or other type of extension, the choice is yours. Let us start the journey to your online success together.

Visit Hostdey.com to get started.

Tips for Creating a Blog That Helps You Land a Position as an X-Ray Technician Faster




Many of today’s business owners and start-up entrepreneurs can attest to how useful a blog is for their company. A blog is able to help with branding, marketing, growing the business, reaching new customers, and targeting various segments. What people don’t always think about, however, is how a blog can be used to market their own self, their skills, and their talents.

As a budding x-ray technician, you probably took your time finding the best x ray technician schools Sacramento, New York, Miami, or any other area, and now you are busy putting in the hard work. It’s likely that you have high hopes of finding employment right out of school, so you can get a start in your chosen career. Unfortunately, when it comes to job hunting, the competition is stiff. Sure, you may have the best training, but that doesn’t guarantee you’ll find work right away.

This is where a professional blog can come into play. Just as blogs are used to market companies, you can use it to market your skills, knowledge, and experience helping you to land a job faster. Here’s a look at how you can create the perfect blog that gets you hired faster.

Start Blogging While You Are Still a Student

While you may not think a blog as a student will prove to be helpful, in reality, the earlier you start, the better it is for you. You want to be able to show potential employers that you are serious and passionate about your chosen field, and a blog can do just that. You aren’t getting paid to blog; you are doing it because it appeals to you, and this will, in turn, appeal to employers.

Always Keep It Professional

One important tip is to remember this is a professional blog, which means you need to stick to the topic at hand and keep things very professional. This isn’t your personal blog where you talk about your weekend, parties you attended, and recent dates. This is your chance to build a name for yourself in your industry.

Stay Consistent in Blogging

It’s also important that you are consistent in your blogging efforts. Create a blogging schedule and stick with it. This again helps to show how dedicated you are to your industry, plus it will help your blog get noticed in Google rankings.

Give People a Way to Connect with You

A blog is also a great place to include your social media and email details so that people can get in contact with you. You never know who may read it and be interested in talking to you further, so make it easy for them to reach you.

Look for Ways the Blog Can Work for You

When it comes to creating that perfect blog, it’s really about finding that perfect combination of giving people the information they want to read about, while making sure it offers you something in return.

Apply for the Nokia Bell Labs Prize Worth $100,000

 

 

The Brief

The Challenge

We are looking for game-changing and impactful ideas that have the potential to change the way we live, work and communicate with each other.

Stage One

In Stage One, you will be requested to formulate an idea (max 250 words) related to the field of information and communications technologies. You will have the option to attach 3 pages of text and/or images to illustrate your concept.

In the submission form we have outlined an indicative list of categories related to communications technologies. Please select the one that best matches your idea. The list is not restrictive and you are free to indicate a different category.

Categories: Web Applications, Cloud Services, Information Theory, Coding Theory, Computational Sciences, Cryptography, Distributed Systems, Data Privacy, Mathematics of Networks, Modulation Schemes, Optical Systems or Components, Communications Systems, Network Protocols, Security, Network Architecture, RF design, Sustainability, Wireless, Fixed Network technologies, Software-Defined Networks, Virtualization Technologies, Real-time Analytics, Search algorithms, Self-Optimizing Networks, Inference systems.

Stage Two

Finalists from Stage 1 will be assigned a Bell Labs researcher as a Partner (BLRP) to help them strengthen their idea and turn it into a robust proposal.

Your BLRP will help you develop each element of your idea – from your vision until initial thoughts on implementation through to description of context, risks and impact. The objective is to have a strong and complete proposal that selected finalists can present in person to the Bell Labs Judging Panel.

Evaluation Criteria

Ideas will be evaluated by Bell Labs researchers based on the following 3 criteria:
  • 10x Innovation Potential - How is your proposal novel – what has not been done before, what is the “out of the box” thinking that could result in a 10x change in performance (e.g., speed/throughput, distance, latency, cost, energy efficiency or simplicity)?
  • Technical Merit – How technically sound is your proposal? On what current principles and capabilities does it depend versus further/future advancements and innovations?
  • Feasibility – Can a proof of concept, simulation or demonstration be built in the course of the competition? What is required to do so? In order to build a commercially viable (revenue and profit-generating) solution, what more would be required?
The finalists who present to the Judging Panel will also be evaluated on a 4th criterion, which focuses on the commercial value proposition:
  • Business Impact – What is the magnitude of the new ICT-related business created by the proposal? How soon could it be brought to market and how differentiated/unique is the proposition?
