Android tv box adds HDR support, snags plenty of newly discovered apps

Android TV didn’t get much stage time at Google’s I/O 2016 keynote Wednesday, but based on the official Android blog, Google’s TV OS and streaming TV platform is growing its achieve into more TVs and hang-top boxes, and it has acquired a remarkable variety of new streaming application partners.

For televisions, The new sony is constantly use Android TV since it’s OS preferred by its 2016 Bravia TV line. The new sony will quickly be became a member of by RCA, that is likely to introduce its first Android TV models to U.S. clients later this season. In Europe, Beko, Grundig and Vestel will introduce Android TV models in June.

For set-top boxes, Sharp’s NetPlayer, in addition to Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi’s mysterious 4K set-top box, will run the Android TV platform.

Google has additionally added some key streaming service apps, namely CNN, Comedy Central, MTV, Freeform, Nickelodeon, Spotify, Starz, WATCH ABC, WATCH Disney Funnel, WATCH Disney Junior, and ESPN. Adding Starz was noted earlier Wednesday, if this seemed to be found that Starz would launch HDR programming through its over-the-top application first.

One might hope that will mean Android N would then allow Android TV to aid HDR, and, indeed, it will. Other additional features visiting Android TV include picture-in-picture for browsing around while a relevant video plays without anyone’s knowledge, and recording APIs for recording live TV programming.

Google Cast can also be making an expansion. The machine, which enables customers to “cast” happy to their TV without resorting to add-on hardware such as the Chromecast, first made an appearance in Vizio’s selection of P-series televisions. Now, Google Cast will apparently be visiting Magnavox, Philips, Polaroid, Toshiba, and Westinghouse televisions, thus putting some pressure on Roku-enabled TVs.

With Google Home coming, Bing is creating pretty compelling situations because of its home theater ecosystem – along with a strong option to Amazon’s Echo speaker – by permitting customers to produce programming on their own televisions or set-top boxes using voice instructions. What’s not obvious is whether or not Google’s new digital assistant may ultimately finish up enabled around the televisions themselves, or maybe customers will need to purchase a Home speaker.

What is Meditation – Total Relaxed State of Mind Guide

What is meditation?

Meditation Guide

There are many different forms and styles of meditation with all of them relating to the same point, awareness of oneself. The art of meditating seems easy at first to the beginner, after all, it is simply a matter of sitting or lying quietly and focusing on one thing to the point of inducing a deep and relaxed state of mind. However there is more to it than that and focusing and remaining focused on one thing is harder than it sounds.

Choosing the point of focus is relatively easy in itself, you may choose to focus on your breathing, a sound, a piece of music, visualization, a mantra or an object such as a candle flame. Keeping your thoughts from wandering is the tricky part, starting off for the first few minutes will be no problem but then before you know it your mind will lose interest and unwanted thoughts start entering your mind again.

The basics of meditating

Start off by making sure the clothing you are wearing is comfortable and not too tight, while you are performing your meditation you can remain sat upright in a chair, lie down on the floor or bed or sit in the classical Buddhist pose, cross-legged. How you choose to do it is of no real importance other than you should feel comfortable and relaxed, however, if you choose to lie down particularly on the bed you might just fall asleep.

The whole aim of meditating is to free your mind from the day to day problems and worries and allow your body to totally relax to the point of sleep without actually falling asleep. People who have practiced meditation for years strive to reach such a state of total relaxation which is termed enlightenment; this is the state of the body and mind being at total peace and harmony with itself, the body has reached the state of relaxation when breathing slows and is asleep even though your mind is fully awake and alert.

Mantra meditation

Mantra is a very simple but popular form of meditation which can be practiced anywhere; it involves the use of a single sound or word being repeated over and over again to help rid the mind of everyday thoughts and worries. The words most often used in this form of meditation are “OM” and “AH”. The words can either be said out loud or only be repeated inwardly depending on the circumstances.

Insight or breathing meditation

Insight meditation relies on the person concentrating on their breathing to rid themselves of thoughts and feelings, by sitting quietly and focusing your attention on the way your breath moves throughout the body and is inhaled and expelled will help the person to become one with themselves.

Visualization meditation

Visualization is another popular form of meditation for the beginner with popular variations being visualizing yourself on a quiet, white sandy beach with the surf gently lapping against the shore to how you see yourself in the future attaining all the goals you set out for yourself. Visualizations are only limited by the imagination; this form of meditation is particularly popular as your thoughts tend to stick more easily with the task at hand than they do in other forms of meditation.

It is used to maintain blogs that look for a steady income from the virtual world. WordPress is definitely one of those platforms that allow the blog pages to become more SEO friendly.

In fact, the use of WordPress allows the website as well blogs to become more attractive without any inside look at the coding aspect. Very basic knowledge on coding is sufficient to utilize the benefits of WordPress. WordPress is very easy to setup. The implementation process is very easy.

 

top secret

WordPress definitely provides a very solid framework plugins and themes that determine how the user’s functionality and content are presented towards the others. In fact, there are plenty of ways that can highlight the extreme SEO friendliness of WordPress blog. Let’s discuss some of them:

Title Tag

Title Tag definitely plays a very crucial role in the world of blogging. While writing an article, it is very important to consider the content (texts, presentation, images, and links). However, most of us forget to include a very appropriate title to the content. A catchier title can be very effective in getting the attention of viewers. This can result in improving the number of visitors. An appropriate title can help in creating a positive impression at the first look. So, always try to be innovative in creating the title for a content. Remember, it is the title that will only appear in the search engine page.

Right Keywords

Use of the right set of keywords is very important for an online content. Without the inclusion of the targeted keywords, a web post will remain invalid. The right set of keywords is required for both the article/blog content as well title. While forming the tag title, ensure that the length doesn’t exceed 70 characters. Anything more than this is considered a very long title and hence fails to attract visitors.

Meta Description

Meta description also plays a very crucial role in making the WordPress blog much more SEO friendly. In fact, the meta description concept is very important while we plan to write blog posts. Meta description simply means a very brief description about a blog post. It should include subtitles, keywords, as well the post title. When we search for articles in Google or any other search engine, the title appears along with a very brief description of the content. This brief description is known as Meta Description.

5 WordPress Plugins that You Shouldn’t Do Without

blogging tips and toolsThe idea here is not to overwhelm you with plug-ins, however in building successful niche blogging sites, I use most, if not all of these. Each one plays an important role. Depending upon your server, too many plug-ins can definitely slow you down, so be careful. My recommendation is to download them now so that you’ll have them when you need them.

Advanced Category Excluder
This plug-in enables CMS like functionality in WordPress. If you’ve ever wanted to write to a category but not have it appear on your front page, in your sidebar, or in your RSS feed, this is the plug-in for you. ACE hides unwanted categories from defined parts of your blog.

Why would you want to do this?  Maybe you are operating a niche blog that focuses on news events. On a news blog, you may post 10 – 30 stories a day. The stories are all relevant and each brings

traffic but you don’t want to overwhelm your subscribers with a feed that’s a mile long or clutter up your front page with 30 stories.

Here’s what you would do:

Create two categories. Call the first one ‘Featured News Stories’ and in it, post your best 5-10 stories each day. Your second category might be called ‘Miscellaneous News Stories’ and that’s where everything else goes. Problem solved.

There are as you can imagine many uses for this if you’re using WordPress as a CMS or Marketing Platform.

All In One Seo Pack
If I could only use one plug-in on any of my niche sites, this would be the one. The All In One SEO Pack allows you to optimize each post on your site as well as the pages. It defines your title, description, and keywords easily and efficiently. This is THE MOST IMPORTANT plug-in you can use.

Privacy Policy
Earlier this year, Google started requiring AdSense publishers to display a privacy policy on sites that displayed AdSense. If you’re running Adsense and don’t have a Privacy Policy posted, now would be a good time. Don’t underestimate the importance of having a Privacy Policy legal pages on your blog.

Google Site Map Generator
A Google sitemap can do wonders for your site. When you have a site map, Google knows what your site is about and will establish a regular and consistent ‘crawl’ or ‘spidering” schedule. Having a valid sitemap is critical to the success of your niche blog. Google Site Map Generator makes this task easy to maintain.

RSS Footer
If you gain any notoriety at all with your niche blogging site, you will eventually run into one of blogging’s greatest nemesis… The ‘Scraper”.  This is the guy (or gal) who steals your hand-crafted posts and through various scripts, posts it to their sites as if it were own. What has a hard working blogger to do?

Enter, the RSS Footer plugin, this plug-in places a small footer message at the bottom of each post you write and publish. The automated scraping programs won’t notice it and when your content is illegally copied elsewhere, your footer message will also be included with a generous link back to your site.

WWSGD – What Would Seth Godin Do
On one of my niche sites, it took over a year to grow to around 1500 RSS subscribers. However; that number tripled over the next 6 months thanks primarily to this plug-in. By default, new visitors to your blog will see a small box above each post containing the words “If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!” After a pre-determined number of visits, the message disappears. You can easily customize the message, the number of visits when it appears, and its location. If you need to grow subscribers, add this plug-in.
