Inside the life of Dusit lead terror suspect : The Standard

Guago Estate, Muchatha, Kiambu that was cordoned off as a crime scene where one of the terrorists was residing. [Jenipher Wachie/Standard] The terrorist who participated in the killing of at least 14 people at DusitD2 complex in Riverside Drive, Nairobi, lived an ordinary life in Kiambu and loved listening to blaring Kenyan urban pop music from his Toyota Ractis which had a muffled exhaust system that gave its engine a loud roar. Ali Salim Gichunge alias Idris or Farouk did not cut the image of a militant. He was homegrown, ordinary and loved a fine life. His neighbours at Guango, a gated estate in Mucatha, Ruaka, described him as a regular guy who had no definite routine but his presence was easily recognisable due to the loud music from his car. Guango is a middle income estate...

An idea, original, crazy some would say but which gradually, for more than 6 months, is making its way. How could a simple website help fight global warming? To understand it, you have to immerse yourself in the world of the Web, search engines and how they work. Every day, new websites appear on the Internet that contribute to enriching, regardless of the content, the information available online. Thanks to search engines, whose mission is to crawl & index content in order to make it accessible online via simple requests, anyone, no matter where in the world they are, can access the most varied content, on their computer or cell phone. This is the beauty of search engines, of which Google is the most effective representative. However, the process of crawling a site, which, it...

A leading figure in the Australian music industry is pleading with the government to shut down illegitimate ticket resale sites like Viagogo. The Swiss-based company uses computer bots to buy up huge amounts of tickets to concerts and sporting events and then re-sells them at incredibly inflated prices. There have been many cases of Viagogo-sourced seats being sold twice and others that have been cancelled before the event, leaving customers hundreds of dollars out of pocket. Many unsuspecting people mistake Viagogo for the official ticket seller because the site has paid to appear at the top of Google searches. The site has been banned from using Google to advertise in the UK, after it broke advertising standards. Frontier Touring’s Michael Gudinski tells John Stanley acti

While generational labels are nothing new, the term “snowflake millennial” is one of the most acidic. It might roll off the tongue, but it is anything but informed.     From the baby boomers of the mid-1940s to the early ’60s, to Generation X yuppies who came of age in the 1980s, labelling generations is nothing new for as early as 1839, French Philosopher Auguste Comte wrote about the gradual and continuous influence generations have upon each other and how generational stereotypes hold firm. For today’s millennials, who came of age around the early 2000s, the charge of “snowflake” has been attached to criticise their perceived sensitivity. The British Army even used the name recently to address young people in a recruitment campaign. One of the soldiers featured in the cam

Why should marketers be more strategic about the way they approach Search? Jordan Koene, CEO of Searchmetrics Inc, shares some practical ways to leverage search as a strategic part of marketing in 2019. Search is always hiding in plain sight. We all know it’s there; but its esoteric and keeps evolving, and typically left to the ‘search expert’ – either inhouse or the Agency. While no marketer will ignore Search in their strategy, they also shy away from getting completely involved or even treating it as a strategic part of their marketing efforts. Let’s face it - once your team or Agency has managed to hit page one of Google for your ‘focus keywords’, just how much attention do you focus on search? While marketers have been faced with the specter of Google’s ‘changing algorithms
