How to Find the Right Hunter for Your Launch on Product Hunt.

2023.03.24 08:12 morgankung How to Find the Right Hunter for Your Launch on Product Hunt.

Hi, startups. 🤗 I’m Morgan Kung, a startup founder as well.
As a startup, we all know that Product Hunt is an influential product launch platform and I launched 3 apps there till now. A few days ago, I wrote a blog post about my experience of launching these 3 and be asked many times that how I found the right hunters and led over-expected launch results. So I decided to share why you need to find the right hunters to launch your products and how to find suitable hunters as well as how to invite them to publish your products.
Hope it's helpful to your product launch journey.
let’s get started. 🏹🎉
Benefits of getting a famous hunter to launch your product.
We have to admit that we are living in an era where traffic is king, which is why we better seek a famous hunter to help us launch our product instead of doing it ourselves.
Famous hunters are usually very nice, willing to help start-up teams showcase their work to the world, have a considerable number of followers, and are true technology enthusiasts. If a famous hunter launches your product,
What famous hunters can not do is make people like your product and become your users or clients, so makers should always note that spotlighting what specific issues your product can solve in your description box.
Now comes the question: how to find the right hunter for your product? There are a lot of factors to consider. Let me explain.
Find the Right Hunter 🎯
If we assume that every top hunter you contact agrees to launch, it’s not wise for a huntee without first determining if the hunter is a good fit for your product. Follow these steps to find the right hunter on Product Hunt:
Step 1. Searching for the Right Hunter 🕵️
An ideal hunter should fulfill the following 3 requirements:
  1. A high number of followers
  2. Several successful launches
  3. A few launches in your category
Where can you actually find them? You can do it manually or take advantage of hunter-searching tools.
  1. Click on the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner of the page.
  2. Type 'Hunter' into the search bar and hit enter.
  3. You will see three tabs above the search results then. Select the 'People' tab.
  4. This will show you all users whose description of their profile includes the word 'hunter'.
  5. Then follow them and find their contact information on their profile pages, them reach out.
Hunter searching tools
Step 2. Make an Effective Pitch 📝
As you might already have guessed, this part is the trickiest and requires most of your time.
The famous hunters get tens of emails and DMs every day, and if your pitch is not attractive, the chances of them replying are close to zero. You need to prepare a well-prepared pitch that’s precise and gives an overall idea of what your product is all about.
You can follow the following tips to create a pitch to reach out to the Product Hunt hunters:
Please note that keep everything as simple as possible, and show your sincerity. At last, don’t forget to ask for ideas to improve your product at the end.
Also, the following picture shows 5 common pitching mistakes you should avoid:
Step 3. Prepare a Hunter Kit 📦
When goes to pitching, it is important to provide the hunter with all the necessary information in a clear and organized format. This not only makes the posting process easier for the hunter, but also ensures that your product is represented accurately to the community.
Some hunters will send you their customized webpage, you only need to submit all the information and materials mentioned on the page.
Key information that should be included in your hunter kit are:
Provide all necessary information to the hunter for a better chance at a successful launch. The more details you provide, the better the hunter can evaluate and share the product with the community. Be comprehensive and feel free to include all the details in your hunter kit.
Step 4. Reach out 📤
Once you’ve prepared your pitch and hunter kit, it’s time to reach out to hunters. Email is usually the best way to contact them, but if you can’t find their email, Twitter DMs can work too. In some cases, hunters may have created a page like Chris Messina’s here, which makes it easier to contact them. By the way, Chris is the 🏆#1 hunter at Product Hunt currently, he’s the hunter of well-known ChatGPT as well.
Based on my experience, it’s better to reach out to around 4 hunters at a time, which means you send messages or emails to 4 hunters at the first and don’t start to contact more before they reply to you saying no. Thus, my suggestion is to start the process 4-6 weeks before the launch.
If your pitch gets accepted by a hunter, be sure to immediately post the first comment as soon as the product goes live on the launch day. I’d also suggest having a press kit ready in case any journalist or blogger wants to feature you in their story.
Final words
To successfully attract a hunter, keep in mind that they appreciate:
The more you understand the hunter and their interests in launching products, the smoother the process will be.
That’s it, that’s how I found the right hunter, hope it can help you to do so.
If you have any related questions, feel free to ask in the comments. 💬👇

2023.03.24 08:01 Archi_balding The more I (re)play RTS, the more I hate Starcraft 2.

Hi everyone. This will be a rant against the giant of the RTS scene. Not really because it is bad, it's still a good game after all, but for what it (IMO) did to the RTS scene.
I've played (and watched) a lot of SC2 since its launch and found it great, but that like getting used to Mcdonald, the sugar and fat make it taste good enough on the moment but you kinda forget what good food taste like.
Starcraft 2 have probably been the most hyped RTS of all time. It have an enormous competitive scene and Blizzard is making sure that no other RTS esport emerges by injecting quite a lot of money into the prizes and marketing.
The problem is that, while Starcraft 2 is a good game, it's IMO a mediocre RTS at best.
Blizzard ran with a lot of the problems that existed in Brood War simply by tradition. And those problems were things of the early 2000's when some things of game design weren't that figured out and that technical limitations were a big thing.
Brood war was truly awesome for its time. But merely creating a polished version of it and strangling the RTS scene in the same move was already not that great in 2010. 13 years later it's becoming unnacceptable.
One of the biggest gripe I have with it are the player adverse decision, even if I understand where they're coming from. A lot of things in Stacraft 2 exist solely to make your time playing it harder. And, to their credit, Blizzard tried to fix some of those. A good example of that is the "inject" mechanic of the zerg race. This race have a unit that must use an ability on their main building to allow the production of more units than normally (it creates 3 larvae which you can transform into other units, the main building only holding 3 of those at the same time normally, which you can transform into 6-9 with the inject mechanic). But coming back to all your bases and injecting each one every 29 seconds is a big pain in the ass and if you only take 3 seconds doing it, you'll spend a tenth of your game doing basically administrative work. Blizzard tried fixing this by making it automatic... and went back on this decision. Because the game becomes boring if you don't spend a tenth of it doing a mindless task that should be automated.
Another problem I have with it that is rarely discussed is that the objective of the game, the win condition, is almost never played. Why ? Well because it's boring. To win in SC2 you need to destroy all your opponent's structures. Do player go against each other's structure to win ? No. They clashes their armies and the one losing the fight is supposed to surrend. It is considered bad mannered to let the game play to its full extent. I repeat : it is considered bad manners to have to play the actual objective of the game ! This going unnadressed for 25 years is blowing my mind and something we should shame Blizzard for. Blizzard knows that the main objective of their game is so boring it isn't ever played and didn't adress it in two and half decades. Because of course this problem exist since the first iteration of Starcraft (and warcraft also but I'm giving it a pass due to engine limitations). And it's not like in the meantime other games didn't make alternative victory conditions. AoE 2 got both map objectives (relics), defense (wonders) and beating your ennemy to the last unit possibilities. With other game modes adding other conditions like assassination of destroying a key structure. One year after the release of SC1. Blizzard had those under their nose (from maybe their biggest competitor at the time) and never touched the idea in 24 years.
Add to that the focus on micro management, where decision making is second to quick execution. The relatively small maps and fast units. The extremely standardized maps. And you get a game that is about making big armies and clashing them together in small arenas until you get a big enough upper hand. Every effort a player put on is about delaying the formation of the opponent's deathball while building their own. At this point, you could just play a MOBA instead and skip the rather boring production phase where you expand and make your buildings in an extremely standardized manner. And being the bigger RTS out there it's exactly what it does. It teaches people interested by strategy games that they can find a more condensed version of the fun there is to have in one in other styles of games.
Starcraft is extremely surface level. And there's nothing wrong with it. After all a game being simple to handle is a good thing. But, as it tries desesperately to appear as the only RTS out there, it kills the whole genre. It's a nice introduction to a genre it wants dead.
Sure you may be tempted to tell me that those problems exist with all RTS. But that's simply not the case. Supreme Commander dodges all of those issues. The objective of the game, the assassination of the ennemy commander, is always the focus of the games. The focus on larger scale and map controll makes that there's no deathball problem. Micro can be done but is not the focus of the game and you're probably giving up some infrastructure building or map control doing so. It runs on all kind of maps and have a stellar team game potential (team games being incredibly boring and unbalanced in starcraft due to its single player standardization, which is a shame for a strategy game). All those problems have been fixed by other games, games that Starcraft wants to hide by its presence.
Top that with three completely lackluster campaigns more focused on one off gimmicks and (bad) storytelling than teaching you how to play the game. All scenarios being "kill off those three generic objectives defended by more and more forces" . You never interract with building an economy, raiding the opponent's one (they don't have one, just magically get troops) or basically anything beyond making a blob of units and clashing it into the ennemy held objective to unlock the next bit of story And don't expect SC1 drama, the story's just a Dragon Ball Z style "beat the evil guy and then the bigger evil guy..." without the self awareness.
Long story short : the biggest RTS and entry point for the genre is trying to kill itself and the entire genre with it by not adressing any of the numerous problems it have. And the more awesome RTS I discover or replay (you should play the C&C serie, the Age of, Total anihilation, Supreme commander, sins of a solar empire and my personal GOAT Zero K) the more I hate Starcraft 2 for hiding all those in its mediocre shadow.

my. fucking. GOD.
what did i just listen to?
Peggy outdid himself with these beats man. I am so impressed & baffled by how amazing this project is. Danny & Peggy did amazing & brought amazing energy on all the tracks. I don’t care about mixing, this project is INCREDIBLE! here are my thoughts on the tracks, along with my favorite moments.
Lean Beef Patty - “I Need A Girl Pt. 2” sample goes dummy throughout, i will always love this single a lot. Hard, hard song.
Steppa Pig - Sample goes absolutely DUMMY. I love this beat so much & it’s grittiness. The keys/synths (?) bring me such joy.
SCARING THE HOES - Man, this single was on replay ALL week. The saxophone throughout always makes me smile. Those drums along with it are something I didn’t expect when I first heard the single. The dude screaming throughout the track “I see you walking in” “work it” “NOW WATCH THIS SHIT, WOO” really brings this track together.
Garbage Pale Kids - reminds me of “XXX” Danny Brown. That guitar solo in the middle is so fucking SEXY. My favorite part of that entire trick. Peggy’s energy is amazing as always. Danny brought it in too. “Eating ya ass like i’m Canibus” LOL.
Fentanyl Tester - I got so hyped when I heard the beginning of this track because I first heard it from a snippet Danny had shown while on Instagram Live. This track did NOT disappoint me. I love the use of the “Milkshake” sample on this track. That beginning part of Peggys verse will forever be my favorite part of that track. The ending breakdown was amazing.
Burfict! - Where do I even begin with this track? Some Super Bowl ass instrumental that I fucking LOVE. Top 5 song on the album. The reason I say this is because that build up to Peggys verse was NUTS. Danny had amazing energy. Danny has brought amazing verses/. I love that mans voice on all these songs. 20/10 track man.
Shut Yo Bitch Ass Up - Some old school cypher beat man. I cannot describe how I reacted when this song came on. My toes curled, my neck veins popped out, sweat was running down my forehead, this beat is NASTYYYYY. Danny did his shit on the first part.
Muddy Waters - Peggy. Peggy. PEGGGYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!! FUUUUCKKKKKK!!!! “And post they wanna-be Black ass on Say Cheese TV” , this line was funny as fuck LOL.
Orange Juice Jones - this track seems like something off of “L.I.S.A”, reminded me of the “Hot Pockets” track. (Chopper)
Kingdom Hearts Key - I am not lying when I say this track made me tear up. This track is actually so beautiful. So So SOOOOO fucking beautiful man. The sample, the drums, the 808s, fuuucckkkk. Peggy & Danny did amazing & gave an amazing performance. Redveil did great with his feature. I loved his vocals coming in with his verse I love redveil man, happy to see how far he has come.
God Loves You - SO FUCKING GROOVY. I DANCED & REPLAYED THIS SONG SO MUCH. Everything about this track makes me nut uncontrollably. “Call me Moses cause I’m about to part the red sea”... brah WHAT LMFAOO. 1:11 was so satisfying. Ski Mask sample was random as shit, but I love it. That sample man… GROOVYYYYY.
Run The Jewels - Nice little short track, I love the trumpet in the beginning. Build up to the groovy beat & Dannys verse is satisfying as shit. I really loved Dannys verse on this track.
Jack Harlow Combo Meal - the title is so fucking funny. Made me think he sampled “Solace” by Earl at first LMFAOO. “Man i can’t fuck with y’all *****, y’all let jack harlow sell your chicken” Peggys singing on 1:35 - 1: 50 makes my ears wet. I love when this man sings on tracks.
HOE (Heaven On Earth) - TOP ONE!!! TOP FUCKING ONE SONG!!!! These fucking samples man. GODDDDDD!!!! 0:47 - 0:50 , Peggy high note is so sexy man. That shit was so satisfying. Danny did his thing, holy shit. The outro is crazy & outstanding man. So fucking groovy with this keys.
Where Ya Get Ya Coke From? - Those drums & horns introducing the track & running throughout are NUTTSSSS. This beat worked so well, Peggy brought it. Energy on this track is UNMATCHED. “You fuck my bitch, i fuck your bitch, that’s an assist” LMFAO.
Overall man, this album was fucking amazing & such an amazing & trippy ride. I loved it & is my immediate top one album of the year & it’ll remain top one of the year. Danny deserves many flowers, he did fucking INCREDIBLE on this album. Peggy amazed me with his production, this shit was so so beautiful man. He’s always doing crazy shit with his production & samples. I still can’t process what I’ve just listened to. The wait did not disappoint, none of them disappointed, god. I love you Peggy, I love you Danny, y’all did some dope & sick shit. This will definitely scare all the hoes. I will have this on replay ALL year. FUUCKKKKKK. THIS SHIT IS SO FUCKING AMAZING. I can't wait for Dannys album & Peggys other two albums.
what are y'all thoughts on this album?

2023.03.24 07:53 Ok-Chocolate-4906 First GP appointment help

Hi all.
I have finally secured a GP appointment to potentially discuss a diagnosis. For the last 6 months or so, I have increasingly felt like I might have inattentive ADHD. The more I read and explore, the more I recognise myself. On Monday I nearly crashed my car as I had a panic attack. I believe this was caused by stress and becoming overwhelmed. I think the stress comes from my work, where I struggle to say no to things (I'm a teacher) and I struggle to focus on getting things done. This means the to do list gets very long, very quickly. Outside of school I struggle to maintain a routine and find myself in doom scrolling spirals often as there's so many chores I just can't start any. When I do have the energy for chores, I jump from one thing to another almost randomly, rarely finishing any of them properly. This includes cooking, where I once nearly burned the kitchen down getting distracted from oil on the stove. There are other things too, but I think these are the root cause of the stress.
I suppose my question to you lovely folks is this: what do I say to the GP so that I can start a genuine path to diagnosis, and not just get fobbed off with "you're stressed, get signed off for two weeks"?

2023.03.24 07:52 itaicool W key (As in walk forward key in wasd) stops working randomly for a short time only when playing the game valorant

So I have an issue with my W key randomly stopping to work in the middle of the game for a short period of a couple seconds, most of the time it works but it will happen about every 1-2 games consistently.
It's not general input issues as when it happens every other key in my keyboard still works (I can still use asd to walk sideways and backwards just not W for forward) and my mouse keep working aswell, also this issue never happened to me in any other game so I don't think my keyboard is the issue on a hardware level.
I also made this post on the techsupport subreddit for valorant specifically but got no response so I'm making this here in hope of getting some help.

2023.03.24 07:50 Other-Borderlands J♣️ : Robin Hood [Capture the flag]

J♣️ : Robin Hood [Capture the flag]
J♣️ : Robin Hood [Capture the flag]
This game is part of a series of games, where I am writing games for all 52 cards for a borderlands in the UK. Each one includes a story of how I imagine the game playing out. You can find all entries here.
Venue: Castle
Player limit: Four
Rules: The castle is split into two sections, The jacks side, and the Player side. The Jack starts with 80% of the gold. Across two hours, players must steal gold from each other’s treasuries. Each team also has a jail, and if a player is caught in the wrong half, they are sent to the jail. If all players are caught, they get one free release. If it happens again it is game over for the team. If a player can get to the jail without being caught they can free one of their team members. Each team also has five keys. Keys can be given one each to each player, in total each team has an A, B, C, D, and M key. These can be used to lock and unlock doors of the same class throughout the castle. M can unlock any door.
While in the treasury players cannot be caught.
The Keys not used are stored in the base and can be stolen by an attacking player, instead of gold. Only two players may be left on defence, one at the prison/safe zone and one at the treasury. Players may only carry one gold item.
Violence is prohibited and punished by a shock from the bracelet.
Sixth Day of Exhibitions

Remaining Games
James sat outside the castle, a bracelet on his wrist, awaiting the opening of the gates. Next to him sat three more bracelets, in front of a sign, reading ‘take one. Four players are needed to begin.’
He sat for a few hours, watching the art of the card hanging from the blimp. The Jack of Clubs. He looked at the castle, it’s architecture, marvelling in a way he had never done before.
He heard someone approaching, and looked down to the familiar form of Ben walking up.
James looked at him, calling out “Looks like you’ve lost your security force!”
Ben walked up to the table, putting on a bracelet.
“I’ve lost a lot since we last met.” He said quietly, and quite uncharacteristically.
“Well there are two more chairs, you can tell me all about it while we wait for the other players.” James said.
Ben recounted his encounter with the Jack of Hearts, and James told Ben about the King of Diamonds.
It was clear Ben had been to a new low after losing the school, and had built his way back to some semblance of his former self’s confidence.
They waited until about three in the afternoon, before three figures approached.
“That’s… not possible…” Ben said.
“What a group of familiar faces!” James said, as they watched Mia, Alex and Ellis approach.
Ellis got there first, nodding to Ben, who nodded back. Mia walked up with Alex, and they explained their ordeal with the King of Spades.
“Well, it looks like we’ve all been through a lot. Maybe we can put the past behind us, and play one more game…” James suggested, holding up his wrist with the bracelet.
“There ain’t no way I’m playing another game after that.” Alex said.
“Well, if you ask me, I’m down for another crack at a face card game.” Ellis said, his familiar smile plastered over his face.
“Well, have fun waiting, cause I’m with Alex. There is no way you’ll catch me playing a game again, especially not with him.” Mia said, pointing at Ben.
“Come on Mia, remember how well we worked together in the nine of spades, and the oh aren’t getting out of here if you don’t beat this guy.” Ben said, pointing up at the picture of the Jack above them.
“Fuck off Ben. I’ve heard about the shit you’ve pulled since I ran off. I’m not joining the game.” Mia said.
“Look, trust me, I’m different now. Reformed if you will. Please, Just this one.” He said, offering her a bracelet.
“Fine. But just know I don’t think of you any higher than previously. I’m just joining to win.” Mia said, clicking the bracelet around her wrist.
The doors began to creak, opening.
They approached, cautiously, watching the sunlight streaming out from it.
Four figures approached, James estimated they weren’t much older than them.
“Look who’s come out to play….” The Leading one said.
“Jack!?” Mia said, in disbelief. “That’s not possible… You’re in hospital… The Crash…”
“Looks like Jack’s the Jack. And also here and recovered from his coma.” James noted, looking at Jack.
“Well, looks like I missed something.” The Jack said, before beconing them in.
“Ben, I’ve been watching your group intently for a while now, and seeing how you led. See, you and I took a different approach. While you chose to lead by force, I chose to lead with equality. Your approach ultimately failed, and you have only managed to gather a group to try and defeat me by humbling yourself. However, your efforts will likely be in vain. As you have learned, and we learned a few years ago, its kill or be killed. One of either groups lives must be sacrificed to continue the lives of the others. We thank you for the sacrifice you will likely make today. It’s nothing personal, don’t worry.” He said, walking in front, towards the centre of the courtyard.
Mia turned and looked at Alex, as the gates shut, obscuring her. It could likely be the last time either of them saw each other.
The Jack began to explain the rules as James surveyed the area, seeing a large screen with ‘player’ and ‘citizen’ written on it, with a large dividing line running down the centre, as well as through the castle.
The layout of the game showed the castle split into two halves, and He knew he was on the player side. He looked at his bracelet, flashing up five images of Keys, one labeled A, B, C, D and M.
When the Jack finished the rules they were told they would have five minutes to plan before the game began.
“So, the way the game starts, it’s impossible to win for us by playing defensive. We are forced to play offensive, but the Jack can only have two full defenders, slightly levelling the playing field. However, this means that the Jack, until we have around equal values of gold in our treasury, can just keep his team on their side as defence.” James said, drawing out a little diagram in the courtyard floor. “We are forced into playing offensive at this point, so that means we have to figure a way around the defence. Because defenders need to escort the people they catch to the prison, we could all run at once and make it past the first defenders here.” He pointed. “Then we arrive at the limited section of defence, where one player needs to run from where the prison is, as that will not yet be guarded. Because someone is running that way, those who are caught should try and stall for time. Then, one person should be able to make it into the treasury, and they simply need to sprint back to get us some gold. Then they can be caught, releasing everyone wit the free release. We can then think more carefully then with a levelled playing field.”
“But what about Keys?” Ben countered.
“Well, for us to need keys there must be locked zones. So, if we assign someone the M Key, and give the other person no Key, they can block a capture from the other team by stepping in front. SO If we give either Mia or Ellis the M key, I’ll take no key and go with them, leaving the other two with designated keys and two keys left at our base.” James suggested.
“Seems like a decent plan.” Ellis said, and they assigned keys, lining up at the centre line, watching the other two walk along it. He recognised them from his school. Ben wondered how they had gotten from the crash to here, they had been in critical condition when he went o the theatre, and now they were claiming to have been here for years… Perhaps it was aliens.
“The Game Has Begun.” The Voice droned, and They enacted their plan.
Ellis and James ran over, and one of the defenders tried to tag him. James jumped in front, getting sent to the prison. Ellis raced towards the door at the end of the courtyard, and he ran into the inside of the castle. He looked around, running through various passageways, before seeing a guard, and he quickly turned tail and ran. He watched Mia run in from the other side, into the room he was guarding, and pick up something large and golden. He kept racing, catching sight of her outside the window.
Ellis quickly jumped through the window to his right, landing with a shoulder roll, and sprinted towards Mia. He watched another defender running for her, and he pushed him out of the way. He was led to prison, and Mia cleared the line.
The gold total on the screen now changed, showing the player team now had 378 gold in their treasury, the citizen team having 622.
Mia took a deep breath, seeing that that incident had taken one sixth of the time, now having fifty minutes left. She was also the only uncultured member of her team. Getting caught would use up their only jailbreak, so it may be worth trying to free them.
Also, Mia knew that she could get to the prison with the Key she had, but wether they had changed the keys they had locked the doors with was unknown.
She walked up to the line, looking at the two defenders who were in the courtyard with her. She made a run for it, note vent making it to the courtyard wall before she felt a hand on her back. Her bracelet indicated she had been captured, and the screen announced that their whole team had been captured and that they have used up their one Jailbreak. All of their team were returned to their half.
“We can’t afford to do that again.” James said. “Because even if we manage to get an item of the same value to put us in the lead, we would only have one defender. No, we need to think of a stealthier strategy.”
“Well, the castle windows are quite close together. Someone with good arm strength, say Ellis, could climb around the outside, and into the treasure room. Then they could climb back with an item without the team realising.” Ben suggested.
“I recon I could do it…” Ellis said, walking over to look out the window.
“Well, good luck then.” James said.
Ellis climbed out the window, putting his feet on a lower ledge, keeping his hands on the ledge. He scaled his way around the outside, carefully moving one point of contact after the other, first his foot, then his hand, repeat. As he got further and further around the castle, the higher the gap between him and the ground became. He arrived at what he thought was the treasury, and pulled himself up, climbing in, and grabbing an easily carrialble item that seemed to be valuable.
He dropped back out of the window, alone of the defenders opened the door, and he began to climb around the outside. He heard someone running, and continued around the outside.
He stopped, feeling a pain on his hand.
“Hello Ellis. I’ve always wanted to do this.” The defender said, bringing his foot into Ellis’ face. He repeatedly did so, until ellis let go of the ledge.
Ellis fell, and the defender shot backwards, electricity coursing through his body. He lay there, and coughed a little, before getting up.. He hated Ellis. He had bullied him for years. Good riddance, he thought.
Ellis crashed down into the floor, has bones cracking, before the laser put him out of his misery.
James and the others watched as the screen showed the words ‘Elimination’.
“A player has been eliminated for leaving the game area.” The Voice announced.
James looked at the screen, showing their score hadn’t changed. 378 - 520.
This meant that Ellis must have been the one eliminated. James hung his head a moment.
He walked up to Mia and Ben, who were defending the base, informing them of the discovery.
They were sad, and they knew that they were now at a severe disadvantage. One player down, and in second place in scores.
James discussed a third plan with them.
“Well, we are at a serious disadvantage. We are one player down, and they can afford to play full defence. We have very few options.” James said, “I think we can try to use Mia to try and draw out the defenders, and then Ben can run in and grab the flag. It is risky, as it is four on one or two, but it seems like the only option.”
“Well, we don’t have many other options.” Ben said, looking at the timer on the screen, 20 minutes left.
Mia walked up to the line alone, as James and Ben walked their way through the castle, using their A and D keys to try and get through the castle. They arrived at a locked door, locked with a B key.
“Damn!” Ben said. They had to find another way around, and turned and walked up a flight of stairs.
Mia was on the line, talking to one of the defenders, asking for Jack.
Jack walked out, and one of the others walked back, taking his place.
“Well Mia. How nice to see you. We’ve not had a proper chance to talk yet, have we?” Jack said, and Mia looked at him.
“I wish I could say it was nice to see you, but the circumstances don’t allow for it.” Mia said. “So, why are you here?”
“Well, I am here because I am the Jack of Clubs, but that doesn’t sound like what you meant. In truth, I’m only here because I don’t want to die. Sounds a bit ironic, but in this world, we know life isn’t worth much. That means there is no god, no afterlife. Nothing. I can’t afford to go yet. I still have so much more to do with my life. I’m sorry we will have to sacrifice your life for ours.” The Jack said.
“I’m very sorry that I’ll have to politely decline.” Mia said, racing across the line.
Jack ran after her, followed by the other defender. She looped around, doing out of the way of his swipes, and rolled past him.
While this was happening, James and Ben had gone up a few floors, and worked through various locked doors. They arrived at the top of a staircase, guarded by another of the Jack’s guards. He didn’t seem to notice them.
Ben stepped out, shouting to him, “Catch me if you can Dustin!” Before bolting down the corridor, as James hid behind the door.
As they ran past, James ran through the door, locking it behind him. He continued down the corridor, towards the treasury of the Jack’s team.
He slowly descended the stairs, seeing a guard stood in front of the door. James knew it was a risk, but he climbed over to the window, and crawled into the treasury.
He grabbed a bag of small jewels, and climbed back up again, quietly. His arms hurt from pulling himself up, but he continued out towards the windows to the courtyard.
He spotted Mia still dodging attempts to catch her, and she caught his eye. She lead them as far away from the window as she could, before James jumped out, wincing as he landed badly. He got up, and was running.
He saw himself getting closer and closer to the line, and he jumped across it, before sprinting back to their treasury, gasping for breath, bent over, hands on his legs.
Mia came in later, informing him he had tipped the balance in their favour. Now all they needed to do was wait for the attack from the Jack’s team.
Mia was left guarding the treasury, while James went to guard the prison. There were five minutes left, when the Jacks team made a last ditch effort for the lead.
They ran all at once, trying to make it to the treasury. James and Mia managed to catch them all, and they sat together in the prison of the player team, as the last few minutes ticked down.
The Jack had turned to the wall, and was crying into his arms.
“I can’t die…” He said, tears streaming from his eyes. “Please, let us live. Please-“
His team mates tried to comfort him, but this was a difficult task in the face of death.
James spoke to their three captives as the time ticked down, James told him as well what he meant about the crash. "20 dead. 19 left in critical condition. Was on the radio as I left for school. We tried not to think about it, but..." He trailed off.
Jack changed the subject, ad they continued to talk, and James even managed to make Jack and the other laugh. It was as it was before. Before the crash, before they arrived here. But the laughter was hollow. The people who he were talking to were as good as dead.
“Well, I hope you use your well earned life w-w-isely.” The Jack stuttered.
James looked at him sadly.
The Laser ended the game, as the voice announced the game had been cleared by the players.
Ben, Mia and James walked out of the castle, as the blimp exploded behind them. The face burning and peeling, and they looked at the remaining games.
The King of hearts.
Ben told them he would go out and try to clear it, and James and Mia agreed to help him.
As they walked towards the Church above which the King of hearts blimp hung, an announcement rang out over the city.
“There is only one game remaining. The Game is the King of Hearts. To join, please make your way to the venue.”
James looked back one final time, seeing the crushed body of Ellis lying at the base of the castle.
He turned, watching the King of Hearts blimp in the distance.
The deck was almost complete.

2023.03.24 07:48 Brophorism I saved a man’s life today

Hello, I just want to get this off my chest because I’m pretty traumatized. I’m not looking for accolades.
I was packing tools to leave for work when I heard some (low volume) shouting from my neighbor’s house. I ignored it for a minute because they often shout at each other. After about a minute, I could hear that he was saying “help me.” I ran over and he was trapped under his car. He had been working under it (without blocks, on a sloped driveway) and it fell on him.
I frantically tried to get him out and saw that his buddy who I guess was “helping” or “watching” was asleep in a truck behind the car he was working on. I shook the guy awake and we tried to lift the car onto the ramps. Car wouldn’t go, keys were in the dead man’s pocket.
I ran back and got a car jack and started lifting it. He had stopped making noise by now. It took forever it seemed to lift it enough. I got it high enough to pull him out. His friend was sobbing off to the side and no help. My wife had been on the phone with emergency services since I ran over and started helping him.
I pulled him out and he was unresponsive. Eyes open, bleeding from the mouth. Dead. I did chest compressions on him for several minutes (felt like 15, I think it was only 5) until the medics arrived. They took him away. I thought he was dead.
My neighbors came over later and told me he was alive. They had checked their camera to see who had pulled him out. Apparently he’s breathing and responsive with nothing more than a few broken ribs.
I don’t feel like a hero. Just traumatized. I keep crying. That was such a terrible thing. I know it’s worse for him, I just feel terrible. Also, I spent most of the day thinking he had died. I was so glad when they gave me the good news.
Thanks for reading. Just had to get it off my chest.

2023.03.24 07:44 ThrowRARK friendship advice?? 22F and 23F

okay so this is my first post and probably my only one. I have primarily made this post to get some feedback on a situation in which i’m very torn in. a few months back i 22 F got into a huge argument with my best friend 23 F. we both met through work and since the first time we hung out we were inseparable. she was truly someone i loved so dearly and couldn’t have imagined my life without. we both were in a time where we were both single and probably getting into trouble we weren’t used to getting into. i ended up in a situationship where i knew nothing was serious and it was plainly just for the sex. no feelings no attachments. he did know both my best friend and i but we never made it awkward where we couldn’t all hang out together. one night my best friend and i were hanging out and my situationship had texted the both of us to hang out. we weren’t up to much so we decided to all link up. i didn’t think much of it because we had all hung out before with no trouble. as the night is going on we all began to drink at his house and decided to just hang out inside until i could sober up to drive my best friend and i home. as time passes by we all headed up to his room to just chill until it was time to go home. during this entire time my best friend is continuing to drink which didn’t bother me. as we’re all hanging out in my situationship’s room we all laid on his bed to watch tv. as we’re laying there he begins to kiss me which didn’t bother me but out of the respect of my best friend i didn’t want to make her feel awkward having to endure seeing any of that. i turn away from him and start watching the tv again and i’m watching tv i start to hear mumbling. as i turn around to look at what i was hearing i see both my best friend and situationship making out. i sat up as quickly as i could and sat at the edge of the bed trying to figure out what was going on and what i was gonna do. i ended up walking out and going to my car. i had debated leaving her there because i was so hurt at the fact that this was happening but ended up deciding to stay and at least take her home. eventually she comes out and starts to cry and ask why i left. i could clearly tell she was pretty drunk and i should take her home. i start to drive to her house as i’m literally shedding tears down my face because never did i think i’d ever be in a situation like this. we get to her house and she stumbles to look for her keys to open the gate but eventually ends up managing. she got out and i had watched her walk towards the door and close the gate and thought nothing else of it. come to find out the next morning she got in her car and tried driving and ended up messing her car up by running into the gate. i found her the next morning passed out in her car because she had left her phone in my car by accident and when i went to drop it off she had no idea what had happened because she said she had blacked out. we didn’t really talk the rest of the day because i had gone out with family and my mind was everywhere. she calls me the next day crying not knowing what happened and why i was upset so i told her what happened and i wasn’t too sure how to move forward. i was willing to move past in with time and decided i didn’t want this to be the end because i truly loved her. i just think we both needed time apart. we talked a few days later and the conversations didn’t go as i had thought it would. she told me she didn’t think what i did (leaving her home by herself the night that everything happened) was okay. in return i told neither what she did was okay either. i had apologized and said that i think i could’ve responded differently but was upset i couldn’t just willing taken care of her. we both took our time apart and i was willing to let go of the past because she meant so much to me and a situationship shouldn’t stop me from having my best friend. come to find out her mom went to my old job looking for me and complained to a supervisor about what happened and was looking to get me fired. since then i’ve only talked too her a few times because i was truly more upset about the way things were handled after more than the situation itself. i just want to know what should i do friendship wise??

2023.03.24 07:42 Novus-Logics 7 Proven React js development Methods to Increase & Optimize App Performance

7 Proven React js development Methods to Increase & Optimize App Performance
No user will want to waste their time on a web application that requires excessive patience from them. Time is a valuable resource. React is a well-liked framework that programmers trust for fast rendering. React js development is used by well-known companies like LinkedIn, DropBox, CSDN, Baidu, and others because of this.
During React js development Service, developers can intelligently and actively ensure React performance optimisation approaches by taking a few key measures into consideration and indicating them. React, however, even renders many irrelevant components resolving such speed concerns.
To get around the expensive DOM operations, there are excellent React speed optimisation approaches that we suggest. Discover how.

1. Virtualizing lists or windows in React applications

The performance of many React applications that use or display lengthy lists is frequently problematic. The complete list will be rendered in the DOM prior to loading the app, significantly slowing down the React.js app's performance and generating UI latency.
List Virtualization or Windowing is one method for getting around this problem. Here, we only permit a limited list of objects to be rendered on the DOM as much is visible, as opposed to presenting the entire long list of components on the app screen.

2. Coordinating the keys for list rendering

While working with lists in react js Services, you can give an element important property that will aid in rendering the following elements.
If the developer incorrectly assigns component keys to list elements for dynamic lists, it becomes useful for the user and slows down the speed of the React app. Here, it is unnecessary because the new list entry will immediately recommend the prior list entry.
To address this bottleneck, you must give each list component a distinct key value. Use Key={ } to improve the efficiency of your dynamic lists in a React project.

3. Slow image loading in React

There is a good probability that your React app's performance will suffer if it has a lot of photos. This occurs because the DOM renders each image individually before presenting the user interface. Therefore, we advise employing lazy loading images, which only render that specific image after waiting until its turn has appeared on the user's screen.
Similar to how windowing prevents extra DOM nodes from being created, lazy loading of images does the same. React-lazyload and react-lazy-load-image-component are the two widely used libraries for lazy loading to improve React speed.

4. Interaction of Components and Functional Components

By leveraging functional components, React.js applications can be performed more efficiently. The easiest and tried-and-true method for quickly creating effective and performant React apps, despite its cliched sound.
React components, such as the React Devtools (extension), provide the following benefits:
· Less code is needed
· Simple to comprehend
· Components are stateless
· Easy to test
· Flexibility to extract smaller components
· Interactivity

5. Recognize how to deal with "this" binding

While 'this' binding is not necessary for functional components, you may want to use them whenever possible. React will not automatically bind your functions within components if you are using ES6 binding, though. You can still manually achieve the binding, though. You can bind your components and functions in the following ways:
· Rendering with binding
· Embrace the arrow function in rendering
· Binding to the function Object() { [native code] }
· Attach the class's attribute to the arrow function.

6. Cut JavaScript Bundles

Learn how to trim your JavaScript packages to get rid of redundant code. Your React application's performance has a greater chance of succeeding if you eliminate redundancies and pointless code. You need to evaluate and decide on the bundled code.

7. Client-Side Rendering (SSR)

Consider using SSR deliberately and determining whether your application genuinely requires SEO. If you can avoid utilising SSR when it's not necessary, you'll be in luck. SSR consumes a tremendous amount of load.


We hope you will follow and put into practise the React app performance optimisation advice that we have offered in this blog now that you have a clear understanding of React performance difficulties and React performance techniques. Improve the efficiency of your current React application by working with the top Reactjs development company like Novus Logics, which can offer experienced advice and best practises. ReactJS developers at Novus Logics implement best practices to deliver robust results for your Reactjs app development.

How much does it cost to hire a ReactJS Developer?

Hiring a ReactJS developer can cost between $20 to $38 per hour. The average hire rate of ReactJs deveoper depends on the size and complexity of the project. Hiring an expert develop from a reputed ReactJS development company is affordable when compared to recruiting an in-house developer. Recruiting an in-house developer can incur additional costs such as infrastructure, training and HR compliances.

What is ReactJS used for?

Facebook created the open-source React.js framework and library for JavaScript. As comparison to using pure JavaScript, it is used to create interactive user interfaces and web applications quickly and effectively.

Is ReactJS coding?

You don't need to be a skilled programmer to start with React, despite the fact that it has its own distinct ecosystem and development methodologies. Your general understanding of web development best practises will serve you well. Your ability to learn React will increase as your web development experience grows.

Which company is best for ReactJS?

There are many companies that offers robust Reactjs development services. However, you should consider the company that understands your project requirements and help you deliver quality projects within your determined budget.

2023.03.24 07:39 RulerWink Super jump bug?

Here's one I haven't seen posted anywhere, why is this sometimes a super jump and other times not?
For Context, all tutorials will tell you a super jump is simply pressing the interact key (E), and then immediately pressing jump (scroll wheel down). I've been doing some experimenting on this, and I don't know if it's just me, but there are a lot more complexities into this.
I started to think that "immediately" jumping wasn't cutting it, so I delayed when I jumped, and it seemed to work a bit better. Upon further experimenting, I started thinking perhaps it isn't the delay that makes it a super jump, but the number (or rather the speed) of jump inputs. I could super jump with one scroll wheel down click consistently, however when I did a rapid burst of around 7-9 it would not register it as a super jump.
This I have no idea about why it's happening or how to combat it, and honestly, I don't care for the knowledge of super jumping because I can do it more consistently now, but with mantle jumping it is the super jump aspect that halts me from completing it (as the rapid inputs of jump, S, E, and jump again seem to mess up my super jump).
Any input or thoughts would be extremely appreciated as I have not seen any threads pertaining to this.
The following clip is played at 0.5 speed to show just how miniscule the changes can be.

2023.03.24 07:28 Panaceaservice Staffing Contracts: Minimizing Risk

Contracts Staffing services are an essential part of any business that hires temporary or contract workers to support their operations. These contracts provide the framework for the employment agreement between the company and the worker, outlining job duties, compensation, and other important details. While staffing contracts are a necessary component of many businesses, they can also present risks if not properly managed.
One way to minimize risk when using staffing contracts is to ensure that they are drafted correctly. This means taking care to include all necessary details such as job description, pay rate, and duration of employment. It's also important to clearly define what happens in case either party wishes to terminate the contract early.
Another strategy for reducing risk with staffing contracts is to work with a reputable Contract staffing services in Bangalore. Staffing agencies have expertise in managing these types of agreements and can help ensure that both parties are protected throughout the process.
Troubleshooting Contract Staffing Challenges
In today's fast-paced business environment, contract staffing services in Chennai have become increasingly popular. Companies are turning to temporary workers to fill skill gaps, meet project deadlines and manage fluctuating workloads. However, managing a contract workforce can be challenging, especially when it comes to issues such as compliance, productivity and turnover. In this article, we will explore some common challenges associated with contract staffing and offer solutions for overcoming them.
One of the biggest challenges with contract staffing services in Hyderabad is managing compliance. Many companies struggle to comply with government regulations related to employment taxes, worker classification and benefits administration when dealing with temporary staff. This can result in costly fines and legal penalties that could harm your reputation and bottom line. To avoid these risks, it's important to partner with a reputable staffing firm that understands the complexities of labor laws and regulations.
Another challenge facing companies that use contract workers is ensuring optimal productivity levels.
Identifying Right Fit for Your Team Through Contract Staffing
Contract staffing is a popular trend among businesses in today's economy. It offers companies the opportunity to hire skilled professionals on a temporary or project-based basis, without the long-term commitment of employment. However, finding the right fit for your team through contract staffing can be challenging if you don't know what qualities to look for.
One of the key benefits of contract staffing is flexibility. Contract employees have specific skills that are required for a particular project or task, and they can be quickly brought on board when needed. When looking to identify the right fit for your team through contract staffing, it's important to consider their level of expertise and experience in your industry.
Another important factor to consider when identifying the right fit through contract staffing is culture fit. You want to ensure that any temporary staff you bring on board will integrate well with your current team and work effectively within your organization's culture.

2023.03.24 07:23 Vegetable-Cobbler734 Federal Reserve in the "big gamble"? Wall Street warns: It's too late to cut interest rates later this year

Federal Reserve in the
Yesterday, the Federal Reserve decided to continue to raise interest rates by 25 basis points and its Chairman Powell's press conference, the biggest point is that the market once again chose to "not listen to the central mother": traders bet on the Fed to cut interest rates by at least 75 basis points before the end of the year, while Powell said this year will not cut rates.
Some investment strategists pointed out that Powell is just "tough talk" on the issue of interest rate cuts, Fed officials are "betting" that the banking liquidity crisis and the resulting contraction in the credit environment is finally under control and will not unduly endanger financial stability and economic "soft landing".
But just as the Fed ignored inflation began to rise in 2021, in March 2022 only "too late" to open the interest rate cycle, the Fed may have misjudged again this time. Even if the interest rate cut this year may be too late to relieve the pressure of debt-ridden businesses.
  1. U.S. Financial Conditions Tighten to Worst Since May 2020 as Banking Sector Begins to Tighten Lending Standards Across the Board
Even if the Fed cuts interest rates, credit spreads will widen and, more importantly, credit may not be available, making it difficult or costly for companies, including those in Asia, to roll over their U.S. dollar debt, according to Redmond Wong, a strategist at Saxo Capital Markets.
According to media reports, a key indicator shows that U.S. financial conditions deteriorated to their worst level since May 2020 earlier in March, following the U.S. regional banking crisis and UBS's "pick-up" of Credit Suisse. In the latest Federal Reserve Senior Loan Officer Survey, the U.S. banking industry disclosed that it is tightening lending standards across the board. In other words, the impact of the current banking crisis should not be underestimated.
Jay Bryson, chief economist at Wells Fargo, believes that Fed officials are taking calculated risks and may believe that the recent banking turmoil, while slowing economic growth, will not evolve into a broader financial crisis, and that the Fed believes it has the tools to contain banking system turmoil and can deploy them efficiently and quickly. But given that regulators such as the Fed misjudged the situation in 2007, it cannot be ruled out now that the Fed's internal consensus that interest rates will not be cut this year was not wrong.
  1. The Fed chose to "raise interest rates and wait and see", mainly because the subsequent impact of the banking crisis has not yet fully emerged
From the Fed's FOMC resolution statement and Powell's remarks at the press conference, it is clear that the Fed is still focusing its decision-making on curbing hyperinflation at this stage, Powell said bluntly that this is because "it is difficult to judge how the banking crisis has caused a change in expectations for a soft landing of the economy" and therefore "it is too soon to judge It is still too soon to judge how to respond to the banking crisis through interest rate policy".
According to some analysis, the Fed's approach is called "hike and see" (hike and see), with nearly half of the market participants before the meeting betting that the Fed will "hold off and wait and see" (wait and see) to form a contrast. contrast.
But the financial markets can't wait, it seems. Futures contracts on the U.S. benchmark interest rate bets for December this year fell to near 4.20%, combined with traders believe that the Fed will raise rates by up to 25 basis points in May, which means traders believe that at least 75 basis points of interest rate cuts this year.
This constitutes a dramatic shift from market expectations before the banking crisis erupted, when hotter inflation and employment indicators even had some talking about raising rates to as much as 6%, and bets on a 50 basis point Fed rate hike this week had been "nail-biting".
3.why the market is contrary to the central bank's interest rate path expectations? Because of greater fears of a credit crunch and recession risks
To sum up, traders, market participants and analysts believe that the risk of a credit crunch, and the ensuing downward pressure on the economy, has spiked bets on a Fed rate cut.
Chetan Seth, Asia-Pacific equity strategist at Nomura Holdings, then said that pressure on the U.S. banking sector has accelerated the tightening of lending standards, which could lead to a recession:
"Tighter lending standards in the banking sector could put downward pressure on credit creation and U.S. economic growth in the months ahead, accelerating the process of a possible U.S. recession."

In fact, the Fed itself is also highly concerned about the potential impact and severity of banking stress. the FOMC statement deliberately added a new paragraph in the front position to warn of bank failures dragging down the economy: "recent developments could lead to tighter credit conditions for households and businesses, and put pressure on economic activity." Powell also said bluntly at the press conference that a credit crunch could replace policy rate hikes.
Only, Powell's remarks emphasized the uncertainty about the spillover effects of banking sector problems on the credit environment. On the one hand, the reduction in lending may lead to a decline in consumer spending and demand, "which means monetary policy may have to do less work". At the same time, banking sector stress may also have a very moderate impact on the economy, and inflation will continue to be strong, in which case more rate hikes are not ruled out.

2023.03.24 07:18 Pooja-12 7 Amazing Benefits Of Data Science For Digital Marketing

Data Science leads to a process that works with enormous amounts of data to extract data and essential information using different research approaches and algorithms. With the emergence of this interdisciplinary field in contemporary life, data can be sophisticatedly structured and applied to various application fields.

Power of Data Science

The ability of data science has grown dramatically over the last few years, making it possible to keep customer cooperation and more effectively interact with the target audience. For digital marketers, data science plays a role that is nothing short of a blessing. (Know what tools are used in digital marketing by joining the best data science courses in India).
A significant amount of knowledge is required to recognize your audience's behavior and interests, which can assist you in changing your marketing strategies. As a result, in the current and anticipated scenario, providing digital marketing without data science would hardly be a serious error.
But how can this data science knowledge assist digital marketers in carrying out their daily tasks? How does data science fit into the world of digital marketing?
What is the goal of data science, what does a data scientist do, and how can digital marketers use data science to design their digital marketing strategy to increase sales and profits? In order to better understand how several positions will complement one another to advance a business's foundation, let's first look at some of their particulars.

Use of Data Science in Online Marketing

Data science is essential to digital marketing processes. It offers information about the preferences and requirements of customers. The client base is recognized by the gathered data, which motivates one to customize ads based on consumer spending, behaviors, and preferences. Some of the most popular advantages of incorporating data science into digital marketing have been outlined below. With this helpful information, you can improve the campaigns' effectiveness and attract more customers.
The first benefit of using data science in marketing is the ability to organize commercial campaigns more effectively and efficiently. The data obtained from the website, ongoing business activities, or social media platforms will show when, why, and how customers interact with the brand.
It appears that you will compile client information in bulk and track the results of each campaign. Yet, you can base your existing or planned digital marketing activities on real-time data, signaling you won't investigate the behavior of faraway ex-lovers but instead concentrate on business operations and selling patterns.
This is a brand-new area of digital marketing to work in, and the data science that is currently in use can tell you everything about market trends, timing effectiveness, as well as consumer behavior, and buying habits.
It is imperative to stay ahead of your competitors and see the newest prospects and spending patterns. Also, you'll be prepared to reach out to devoted customers and deliver the best material to them at the ideal moment.
In the end, a high-quality customer experience and a delighted client base start off with returning local customers. Do a local marketing campaign to learn where, why, and how people buy so you can meet their needs.
Give customers a truly personalized experience by implying that they must feel valued to contemplate purchasing your goods. Your customers won't just be happy when they leave the store; you'll also witness increased customer loyalty.

Advantages of Data Science in Digital Marketing

Despite the two characters' seemingly unorthodox personalities, their skill sets can work incredibly effectively together to sell a brand's support line. The use of data is changing how sales and marketing are done.
The amount of data people create today is enormous, as a greater proportion of the population works online. You can customize your operations to match each consumer's spending and action patterns by using the accumulated data.
Here are a few ways expert digital marketers can implement data science into their operations to gain advantages.
  1. Budgeting for optimization in marketing
Budget restrictions apply to digital marketers. Each marketer strives to maximize their ROI from the budget they have been given. Usually, it is difficult to accomplish this. Effective budget utilization is not always achieved, and figures don't always match the plan.
A data scientist can develop a spending plan that more effectively uses the budget by looking at a digital marketer's asset data and spending patterns. Many experienced digital marketers would profit from using this strategy to distribute their budget among various initiatives, channels, tools, and processes to maximize key performance indicators. For a detailed explanation of these demanding tools, refer to the domain-specialized data science course in Bangalore, developed by industrial experts.
  1. Identifying the Right Channels
Data science could be utilized to identify the channels giving digital marketers enough revenue. By utilizing a time series approach, a data scientist can analyze, study, and identify the different lifts observed across multiple channels.
Also, this may be quite advantageous as it shows the digital marketer exactly whichever channel or sign generates accurate and suitable income.
  1. Boost traffic using a tool for Search Engine Optimization
One approach to increasing website traffic is through search engine optimization (SEO), and data science is quickly transforming how people increase website traffic. Data scientists use search engines' capabilities to gather, analyze, and provide feedback on data. Data science is being used in this SEO to eliminate speculation.
Data experts theorize what's giving them the desired outcomes and how they may conceal their success, in addition to speculating how things work and how a specific activity influences the company's goals.
  1. Making Customers and Marketing Policy Compatible
Digital marketers must meet their customers appropriately to get the most out of their online marketing operations. In order to do this, they can develop a model for estimating the lifetime value of a consumer that can categorize consumers according to their presence.
These models can be used for a certain type of its use crisis by digital marketers. For instance, they may provide discount coupons and even referral cards to their most valuable customers while enacting retention strategies for those likely to depart their clientele.
  1. Outstanding Lead Scoring
Not every lead a marketer obtains converts into a paying client. The sales traffic and ultimately the department's performance will improve if a digital marketer can segment their customers according to their needs.
Marketers may create a scary lead score system using data science. This system uses an algorithm capable of estimating the probability of transformation and appropriately segmenting the lead account.
  1. Sentiment Analysis
To execute sentiment analysis, digital marketers can use data science's assistance. They will have more trustworthy information on their clients' beliefs, concepts, and opinions as a result. Additionally, they may track whether customers are sticking with their brand and how they react to marketing campaigns.
  1. Extending Beyond Those Word Clouds
Marketers frequently use word clouds to analyze social communications. Nonetheless, word clouds were helpful when there was a lot of social action.
Marketers frequently stop utilizing unsuitable keywords when there is a lower degree of social activity. They can overcome those word clouds by using data science, which includes
natural language processing techniques.
This can be accomplished by contextualizing the use of language and redistributing relevant content to draw in customers.


As soon as digital marketing is successful and digitalization continues to rise, data science will become increasingly valuable.
If you want to keep one stage ahead of your competition and profit, combining machine learning and digital marketing will be essential in the future.
Those were some of the fascinating ways that data science approaches may be incorporated into digital marketing strategies to increase sales and the bottom line for the company. With data science's pervasiveness, amazing digital marketing strategies are possible. Because of this, a firm knowledgeable in data science will be able to take advantage of the best chances and lead a healthy lifestyle in the digital age.

2023.03.24 07:16 Woodwickward My Journal over the past yearish

My brain is a rampant bull on the loose. When i take the pills, I get a lasso, and sometimes i hook the bull, but it always comes undone within seconds, and soon the rope breaks.
My brain is a star meant to shine bright, and orbit the planets of life, but instead was set on a crash course with nearby astroids.
Focusing for me is like driving with a small child. You try to play one radio station (focusing on one thing) but the child reaches from the back seat and changes the channel. You keep trying to turn the channel back, but the child grows, and grows until its impossible, and the radio is broken.
I know that when I am doing something other than what im supposed to is wrong. I want to do my work so much, but my body has autopilot, and takes control, leaving me like a battered prisoner, locked in a cell.
My mind is a cardboard box with nails hammered inside. I try to function normally, and act like a normal human, but my brain moves around, causing more damage to itself over time.
Sometimes i laugh even though nothing was funny.
Im jealous of those born into wealth, and layed back parents. I want consistency. I want peace, and quiet, and a small room to sit. What everyone else wants is to pull me out of my hole like a snake, and extract my joy and life like the fangs of a cobra.
I have told myself 3 times now to do my homework while typing these. Nothing works
Sometimes I make promises to god that i can almost 100% always complete. Today was the first time i failed.
Im stuck in a loop, and it will not end unless acted on, but my exit key is locked out.
All i have been smelling lately is my own dead braincells. I havent stopped to smell the lilacs, or appreciate nature
Over the day, the world around my brain gets pulled away, and by 5:00 pm, my brain is like a white void with a blank box inside, containing only essential things. My brain fries throughout the day.
If a cog in a machine is not working, you dont reforge it in the same mold. You try something new to shape it differently, to function in society. The same goes for people
Every single day, my brain falls further into the chasm of insanity.
Sometimes I find myself forgetting simple tasks. The dough of my mind is beginning to grow stale, and misshapen.
I want to write a song about my daily struggles, but i cant even focus enough to fucking do that. My brain’s cord is corroded, and nothing will ever be able to fucking fix this bullshit.
The world around me always rotates, and i want to move with it, but my truck’s battery is stuck is depleted, and nobody bothers offer me a pair of jumper-cables.
Music changes the world.
My brain is always divided into 2 parts. One telling me to do things that arent good, and the other telling me to do them, but the evil one always wins. Sometimes my brain works like jeckel and hyde. Constantly contradicting one another.
Music keeps me in check.
Society isn't fair. Those who are flawed aren't able to get to the top. Those at the top do not have flaws. They cannot understand how to help and they cannot sympathize.
Every day is the same thing over and over and over and over. Going on a roller coaster once is fun, but every day numbs your initial joy. Over time, you stop enjoying the consistent, never changing loop that keeps growing more dreary.
I like antique shops. They hold many rare treasures to fill your room with. I prefer these unique items with spirit put into them, rather than a cheap piece of plastic found in every walmart. I like the idea of rarity. Something special to only you. Something to prove to others.
I should really start adding dates. This has spanned over half a year so far…
1/16/23 Sometimes, when i have dreamed in the past, or even when I am really high, i see a delphox, for whatever reason. When I was around 9, I had a little bit of insomnia for a while. During that time, I think my brain just tried to create something to comfort me, so (as stupid as it sounds) I started talking to a delphox in my head about my troubles. Recently I have seen it again, when high.
Im losing my fucking mind
Im becoming a worthless piece of shit. I piss in a bottle 2 times a day, I zone out almost the entire school day, get home and since my brain prohibites me from doing homework, I spend hours on my computer. Often I will venture to sold4u auctions and attempt to buy shit I cant afford.
What if I am trapped in a test created by some advanced group and my whole life has been a lie. Maybe
Whenever im stressed, have a little anxiety, or any trouble doing something, music will play in my brain and it wont go away.
1/24/2023 I really want to write a good song, or make a good film. When i listen to sad music, my soul may be touched or inspired to do this. If i listen to hyper music I get high adrenaline. Sometimes my problems keep me as a prisoner within my own dark and desolate mind.
This is all going on a flash drive from now on. It WAS on a drive, but I need insurance that my journal won't be lost, and that It will be preserved for me.
1/29/23 I sometimes like to almost trick my mind into laughing at like gore on livegore, as if im laughing at it ironically, but then i actually laugh at it.
2/9/23 I like to (try) to draw. I get high, I draw goofy things. Today, my dad dropped me off at home before my mom and grandpa were there, and it was the first time in almost a year that I felt genuinely really calm. Lately I have felt kind of stressed with grandpa here, but with nobody here, the peaceful serenity inspired me for the first time in a while, and i was motivated to DO things. I went out to get sticks for a project, I began to draw, but the second the car rolled up, my stress came back. I like calm, not the scattered heptic that grandpa brings to the house. He needs to go to a nursing home.
3/23/23 Im starting to lose it for real. I like to smoke pot, but i doubt thats the cause. My mental strain is too much for my brain to handle, so its begun to crack under the pressure.

2023.03.24 07:14 zphead Bad Turo Host

Do not rent from Paula Sweet in Fayetteville AR. She tries (not very hard) to rent her BMV I3 but she pulled a 5-day rental from me the night before traveling. Very unprofessional and a lame excuse about a key not working.
If you could only rate hosts that cancel on you I’d give her 1-star. But it favors the people who rent their cars rather than people who try to book them.
Anyway steer clear of this person unless you want to get stuck renting a last minute car with someone at the airport.
