If you’re new to search engine optimization (SEO) you might not be sure where to start when looking for a suitable agency to fit your needs. Usually, clients and customers expect a reliable and experienced agency to appear right at the top spot of search engine results (SERPs). This sort of thought process is logical in nature, but being placed at the top spot does not necessarily mean that the agency is competent, reliable or even trustworthy. The market is filled with hundreds of SEO agencies, and only so much room at the top of the SERPs. This makes it unreasonable to judge the capabilities and experience of an SEO Agency by simply reviewing their position in the SERP’s for certain keywo...

Going to be a parent soon? You may want to think twice before putting your baby to sleep with an infant sleeping machine. A new study suggests that sound-generating devices might help them sleep but it could be harmful to their hearing. .
Canadian researchers have found that when noise machines are used on a regular basis, they can produce sound levels dangerous to infants' ears. This may lead to hearing, speech or learning problems in the future.
"I'm not saying that these devices will cause hearing loss — I'm just saying that they could," said Dr. Blake Papsin, a study author and otolaryngologist-in-chief at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.

China's Deepest Diving Sub Will be Getting New Eyes
Believe it or not, we're still on a quest to look for creatures of the deep. That's why, China's deep-diving Jiaolong submersible will be getting some new 3D cameras to spot undocumented species in even pitch black waters. The cameras were devised by a team from the Second Institute of Oceanography in Hangzhou. It snaps a series of three-dimensional images to build up a composite image of sea creatures. The system utilizes two separately mounted lenses to provide the stereoscopic perspective. This will allow researchers to accurately measure the dimensions of sea life without having to collect samples. Will we eventually be able to uncover the deep dark mysteries from the bottom of the ocea...
Color Solar Panels Will Let Stained Glass Windows Produce Power on the Cheap [VIDEO]
Solar panels were designed to accumulate light and they are typically very dark in color. The reason for this is so they are more efficient. But the problem is that they look bad. An eyesore. To make it cooler looking, researchers from the University of Michigan have developed the world's first semi-transparent colored solar panels.
The colors weren't created by adding dyes or a film, but instead were produced by the mechanical structure of the solar cells themselves causing them to reflect different wavelengths depending on the thickness of the semiconductor layer. Finally, solar panels that won't make your home look ugly. [University of Michigan]
Check Out the Amazing Cinematography of House of Cards [VIDEO]
Have you finished binge watching season two of House of Cards? If so, then you'll know how beautiful the cinematography in it is. In an interview with Go Creative, the Igor Martinovic, the show's cinematographer tells how he crafted the show's unique visual style.
The show is made up of composed shots, dark lighting and subdued colors. It is a deliberate strategy formulated by the show's directors together with Martinovic. Martinovic also talks about how the camera is very still throughout the series, and there is not a single steadicam shot. It never pans and tilts at the same time and there is a stark conrast to the rpevailing filmic style of fluid motion and dynamism.
The series was sh...
South Korea's Biodomes is Noah's Ark for Endangered Species
The list of endangered species grows every year because us humans are bulldozing into their territory. And then, we're creating more and more greenhouse gases too. What can we do to save the Earth? South Korea's answer is to build a biodome. It is their part of a broader effort to protect its native endangered species. They unveiled new designs for its National Research Center for Endangered Species that will be built in Yeongyang-gun, one of the cleanest pats of the Korean peninsula. The idea, from Samoo Architects & Engineers (SAMOO), is to blend the three-part compound with the surrounding nature. The biodome will have a couple of areas, and the main area is known as the Core Zone. I...
