SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jason McDonald, an expert on search engine optimization and social media marketing, is proud to announce new website content focused on the complexities of being an expert witness in search engine optimization or SEO. As search engines such as Google, Amazon, and Bing increase in relevance for businesses across the United States, litigation is also increasing and hence the demand for expert witness services in how search engines operate and how content can be optimized for SEO.

“I have been working on SEO or search engine optimization for a very long time,” explained Dr. McDonald, Director of the Jason McDonald SEO Consulting Agency. “As part of my blog, I produce basic content that helps lay people, including businesses and marketers, to master the art and science of SEO. In certain instances, I can offer my services as an SEO expert witness.”

Persons interested in reading the latest content on SEO can visit the newest blog post at https://www.jasonmcdonald.org/blog/2021/04/local-expert-witness/.That post explains the nuances of local SEO, which is used for local businesses like florists, attorneys, and even dog sitters who want to rank for local searches on Google, Yelp, and Bing.

In addition, those who would like to learn more about the SEO expert witness services can visit the newly updated landing page at https://www.jasonmcdonald.org/seo-consultant/seo-expert-witness/. As that page explains, an SEO expert witness is a person well-versed in On Page and Off Page SEO. This means not only optimize the website itself for search engines but also engaging in external link-building and, as necessary, optimizing the user experience.


Here is background on this release. Dr. McDonald has a long history in SEO. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California in 1992 and began working in media in San Jose, California. In 1994, he founded eg3.com, one of the first Internet portals for embedded systems engineers, and by 2000 that company was an early practitioner of SEO technique to rank high on search engines such as Lycos, AltaVista, Yahoo, and even Google. By late 2008, however, Dr. McDonald returned to teaching, ultimately working for Stanford Continuing Studies teaching one of its first courses on SEO. With the rapid growth of online advertising and digital marketing in recent years, Dr. McDonald is seeing a dramatic increase in inquiries due to litigation over online advertising, SEO, and social media marketing. The new content helps attorneys figure out how to identify and hire a strong expert witness. It should be noted that Dr. McDonald has been certified as an expert witness in both federal and state court here in California.

TerraLab and the STA logger announce partnership with Esri

TerraLab and the STA logger announce partnership with Esri, the global leader in location intelligence.

MELBOURNE, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA, May 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — TerraLab, the designer and manufacturer of the STA logger announced Esri Partner Network partnership with Esri, the global market leader in location intelligence.

The STA logger (pronounced “sta”, not “S.T.A.”) is an automated GPS and data logging attachment designed to integrate with existing weed control tools in the conservation and forestry industries. Once equipped, the solution takes mapping and data handling out of the hands of the operator and automates it so that all there is left to do is view and analyse your data. The STA logger is used by government and private industry worldwide for conducting targeted weed control programs and mapping the location of trees that have been or are to be planted.

“We originally designed the system with the ambition of mapping every weed that was sprayed during routine conservation work. Not only would it create an efficiency in following up stubborn weed infestations, but the analysis of the temporal trends was expected to be insightful,” said Harley Schinagl, Director of TerraLab and designer of the STA logger. “But in addition to that, we saw it being adopted by the forestry industry for marking the location of their trees, and effectively giving them a stand count while conducting routine weed maintenance.”

Some organisations are also using it as a way of tracking and verifying the location of herbicide application on their land. “The data is so fine scale that one can determine the location and time of every trigger pull of the spray equipment,” Harley said.

Many will be familiar with Esri because of their ArcGIS system which has been the mainstay of the GIS world for decades. The STA logger system relies on ArcGIS for processing, hosting and serving data to its users. Users without a background in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can easily view and interact with the data through their browser or mobile device, while the more experienced user can add the data to their ArcGIS Pro project.

TerraLab is a leading geospatial and environmental services consultancy based in Victoria, Australia. As well as providing cartography, analysis, development and administrative services to its customers, TerraLab is also the developer of the STA logger; a weed mapping solution designed for the conservation and forestry industries and used by government and private industry worldwide.

Center for a Humane Economy Applauds Dropping Charges Against Local Fire Chief for Trying to Protect Bear Cub

bear cub

The Center for a Humane Economy reacted to news from Jackson County District Attorney Fire Chief Gene Davies won't be prosecuted for helping a young bear.

ASHLAND, OREGON, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Center for a Humane economy reacted to today’s announcement from the Jackson County District Attorney that Greensprings Fire Chief Gene Davies will not be prosecuted for rendering aid to a young black bear on April 7th. Chief Davies was cited on April 8th by Oregon State Police (OSP) for his role in rescuing the animal from a busy public highway.

“We applaud the Jackson County District Attorney for not pursuing charges against fire chief Davies,” said Scott Beckstead, director of campaigns for the Center for a Humane Economy. “The man deserves a medal – not a citation — for coming to the aid of an animal in distress. The Oregon State Police bringing charges against him was akin to filing vandalism charges against a man breaking a window pane on a car to pull an injured man out of a burning car.”
On April 8, the day after the chief rescued the bear from the roadway, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and OSP officers arrived at the Chief’s his residence, seized the bear, and issued him a citation for criminal negligence and possession of wildlife without a permit. Despite being informed that licensed accommodations had been located for the bear, ODFW shot and killed the bear cub.

Despite public statements by ODFW that the bear was “emaciated,” photos and witness accounts depict the animal as small, but otherwise healthy.

“We are thrilled that the District Attorney understands Chief Davies’ good intentions and his desire to do the right thing by everyone involved, especially the bear cub,” said Beckstead continued. “This is not, however, the end of the conversation. This case underscores the need for fundamental reform in how our state agencies respond to wildlife in need and the good-hearted people who step up to try and help.”

Beckstead said a hearing will be held before the House Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources on Thursday, May 6, to discuss the incident and propose a path to begin efforts at reform. Chief Davies is expected to testify at the hearing.

The Center for a Humane Economy does warn citizens to refrain, except in extreme circumstances, from ever taking animals from the wild. Often times, juvenile animals are only temporarily separated from their mother, and it’s best to stay clear of healthy wild animals of any age.

Las Vegas Attorney Jack Buchanan Offers Serious Advice to Protect Yourself Against Criminal Proceedings

Jack Buchanan of Las Vegas, president and criminal defense attorney at Buchanan Law Defense, addresses key advice for those grappling with criminal proceedings.

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — With his years of experience, defense attorney Jack Buchanan knows better than most what harms or helps defendants. He has represented individuals accused of every imaginable crime, giving him professional insight into how people accused and on trial can protect themselves during criminal proceedings. If you feel ill-prepared to face the legal process, start with these four key pieces of advice.

Handle Police Interactions With Care
Interacting with the police during an arrest, investigation or trial can cause distress and frustration. Anytime they speak to the police, Jack Buchanan insists that people should have a lawyer present to protect themselves against unfair questioning or treatment. You want to avoid saying anything that could negatively affect your case.

Often the best course of action when addressing the police involves declining to answer their questions. Offering limited information until you feel confident in what to say and how it will affect the case protects you in the long run. When you do tell your story, never lie, since lying can land you in as much trouble as saying too much.

Land Seasoned Defense Attorneys Like Jack Buchanan
A strong criminal defense attorney serves as your best form of protection against criminal proceedings. You want a lawyer with extensive practical experience who understands cases like yours. Attorneys like Jack Buchanan in Las Vegas offer free consultations, which can help you identify a lawyer you can trust.

A criminal defense attorney provides invaluable services to defendants of all kinds. You can speak openly to your attorney without the fear of retribution for your words. Attorneys help navigate your conversations with police, structure what you want to say, how you can say it and will prepare you for court. 

The prosecution in a criminal case must prove beyond reasonable doubt that you committed the crime. Through the information exchanged at your consultation, your attorney will understand just what the prosecutor must do to prove your guilt. This means they know how to build your case to combat any allegations made against you. 

Consider Your Courtroom Presentation
Jack Buchanan strongly believes that how you present and conduct yourself during criminal proceedings can make or break your case.

Think About Your Appearance
In court, you want to make an excellent first impression to rally people on your side. A neat, professional appearance with business-like clothing goes far in helping your reputation. 

Manners In Court
People should also consider how they behave during and outside courtroom proceedings. Discussing an ongoing case with family, friends or on social media can prove detrimental to a defendant. Without proper counsel, anything or anyone could become evidence or a witness. Conducting yourself with respect for the case and people in court, no matter what you feel about what’s being said, can give you the upper hand.

Know Your Rights
Above all, Jack Buchanan believes defendants in criminal proceedings should understand their rights. Critical examples include but are not limited to the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendments of the United States Constitution.

Fourth Amendment
The Fourth Amendment protects citizens from unreasonable search and seizure. When police begin investigating a potential crime or respond to a tip, people should stand firm on this right. 

Fifth Amendment 
From the initial arrest and questioning, the accused can use their Fifth Amendment right to avoid self-incrimination. The Miranda Rights read to arrested persons falls under this amendment, and police must declare this if they intend to question someone. The Fifth Amendment also extends to trial, where Jack Buchanan and other attorneys ensure the judge and prosecutor cannot force the defendant to testify against their wish. 

Sixth Amendment
The Sixth Amendment guarantees accused persons counsel during criminal proceedings, but it also includes other important factors. The defendant has a right to confront witnesses who testify against them, as well as obtain witnesses in their favor. The support offered by character and regular witnesses immeasurably boosts the defendant’s credibility.

The Defense Attorney You Can Trust
If you need a defense attorney, look no further than Buchanan Defense Law’s unmatched reputation. Since taking over his father’s office in 2009, Buchanan has dedicated himself to protecting the rights of residents and tourists of Las Vegas accused of crimes. With a diverse range of experience, Buchanan has fought against everything from traffic offenses to accusations of violent crimes with passion and open communication.

The People Behind the Brand: Brand Ambassador

Jay and Jennifer Etheridge at Scottsdale Barrett Jackson

2021 Wraith in Raw Aluminum

Rear-view Perfection

2021 Combat Knight Wraith

Combat Motors

Jay is much more than his mere qualifications. He is a brand ambassador.”

— Ernest Lee

BIRMINGHAM, AL, USA, April 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — If you decide that a Combat Motorcycle is in your future, you will likely need to speak to one guy… and one guy alone. Seriously. He’s not a salesman, the title is demeaning to a gentleman of this nature. He’d better align with being the best man in your wedding. Someone you trust to deliver on the expectations you’ve set in your own mind. His name is Jay Etheridge.

Anyone can sell these things, right?! No. Combat Motors creates some of the most elite class machines in the industry. The machines built by Combat Motors, the P-51 Combat Fighter, F-117 Fighter, the FA-13 Combat Bomber and the all new Wraith, do not fit any form or adjective of a “typical” nature and neither do the support staff of Combat Motors. The Combat Motors brand rests on the shoulders of someone that upholds the ideals and expectations of each of their patrons. Enter Jay Etheridge, Brand Ambassador, the person that Combat Motors has entrusted to connect every client to the machine of their specific requirements – fine – “dreams”, the term is overplayed but these bikes are dreamy.

Jay is a Pennsylvania native that relocated to the great south to escape the brutally cold winters of the north. Starting his career in 1995, he is a tenured corporate accounting professional with a finance degree that he initiated at The University of Phoenix and completed at The University of Alabama in 2009. Combat Motors wholly trusts that the numbers he provides our clients are as close to accurate as they can be. However, Jay is much more than his mere qualifications. He is a brand ambassador.

Jay goes far beyond his accounting services for Combat Motors. His dedication to clients’ needs also goes beyond just fielding the calls and completing orders. He also personally delivers each machine to its new owner. Do you remember that saying where someone “eats, sleeps and breaths this stuff”? This is why Combat Motors uses the term ambassador. Jay goes above and beyond for every Combat Motors’ client by exuding the company’s founding principles.
Jay is driven to excellence because he has been empowered to do so. Ernest Lee, owner of the brand, in recognition of Jay’s innate ability to make those around him feel welcomed, has encouraged him to do nothing less for his clients. Even if you’re not in the market yet, Combat Motors encourages everyone to stop by the shop or at their booth at a show to say hello to Jay. You’ll find these words are given substance when you see just what kind of gentleman Jay Etheridge is.

Combat Motors is dedicated to excellence. Whether it is a simple inquiry to the price and availability of a pre-owned machine or something that is destined to be as unique as your one-in-a-googolplex personality, you will never feel pressured by Jay. Combat Motors is shaping the company to be unlike anything you’ve experienced in the past; from “Follow My Build” features that showcase your actual motorcycle being constructed, to the personal involvement of Jay’s assurances and support during the sales or service process. One call to Jay Ethereridge is all that it takes to become a part of history in the making.

Influential Lifestyle Brand Entrepreneur Brad Pyatt Hints at the Next Big Trend

The industry thought leader is behind recent trailblazing ventures, and he's nearly ready to launchsomething he predicts will be huge

DENVER, CO, USA, April 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Having an agile, strategic mindset served Brad Pyatt well as an NFL athlete. These attributes continue to power his career as a successful health and wellness entrepreneur. Once named among the Top 50 Successful Athlete Entrepreneurs of All Time and among the Top 100 Influential Leaders in the Food Industry, Pyatt has a reputation for upending traditional thinking to create multi-million dollar brands.

Cracking the difficult codes

"My strength is being able to peek around the corner and find the trends before they become trends," comments Pyatt, whose track record off the field has been filled with big wins. He and wife Stephanie amassed numerous celebrity endorsements when they formed Tru Brands, Inc. and launched TruWomen, 100 percent plant-based protein bars with fun, playful names targeting the women's nutrition market.

An easy route might have been just capitalizing on the plant-based trend. But that's not how Pyatt does business. "We're dedicated to cracking the difficult codes. It took us two years, and hundreds of renovations, before we were ready to debut TruWomen to the market in 2018," Brad Pyatt recalls.

"Our challenges were texture and taste. We were not satisfied with just coming out with a plant-based bar. We focused on disrupting the category with the best-tasting plant-based product and the best-tasting protein bar. We solved the challenge with a coated bar, which hides a lot of the protein within the coating."

Marketed as indulgent nutrition, TruWomen is a taste-based candy bar alternative. The product line won Vegan Protein Bar of the Year in 2020, and the UK's Nourish Award for plant-based ingredient products. Its fans include Halle Berry and Megan Fox. Brad Pyatt negotiated for TruWomen to be distributed by Target, Whole Foods and Costco Canada, among other locations.

"My success with TruWomen caused me to dig deeper into ingredient technologies and how these products are produced," he reflects. Pyatt sold Tru Brands in 2019 to focus on his next creative venture.

Pyatt next helped introduce the world to citrus-based CBD

Ever the disruptor, Pyatt founded Tasty Idea, LLC in 2018 to use his imaginative ideas to accelerate growth for food and beverage companies. To date, Pyatt and his team have launched more than 500 products and won 20 industry awards.

But the idea that turns the most heads lately is Peels, the only company in America selling citrus-based CBD. Brad Pyatt is one of the founding shareholders. "I like to bring solutions to categories with new ingredient technology. We didn't want to be part of the hemp dialogue," he explains. "With Peels, we can make CBD even more accessible and worry-free because it's not from hemp, is 100 percent THC-free and it is not governed by the same legal restrictions."

Peels CBD is made from orange peels and marketed as citrus-derived wellness. It is molecularly identical to the CBD produced from cannabis plants and offers the same holistic effects. "It alleviates most of the consumer concerns about CBD products: There are no toxic impurities. It is FDA Standards and GRAS certified. And there are no concerns about positive drug tests."

What's next for this driven athlete-turned-entrepreneur?

Brad Pyatt gives a small glimpse into where he'll next apply his energies. "I am intrigued by sports nutrition innovation. There are ingredients that have been around for decades, but that doesn't mean there isn't something new to bring to market with some smart technological re-imagining. My ‘what's next' will be what I call a cool, T-shirt worthy lifestyle brand: a name and logo consumers will want to wear.

"Stay tuned because I'm about to usher in a new era of sports nutrition."

YMHConference feels it is very critical to confirm that racism and discrimination of any form has a profound debilitating traumatic impact on the Mental Health of Black and diverse students, which is why educational success for marginalized groups living below or close to the poverty line is lower.

YMHConference believes in and provides comprehensive, responsive and race-specific mental health services from mental health professionals with lived experiences in order to break this cycle.

YMHConference serves EVERY demographic and has for many years provided race specific mental health services to black youth who continue to be counselled by black counsellors with lived experience.

Our Advisory Board consists of health experts, doctors, educators, counsellors and most importantly YOUTH.

With the partnership between Voice of Men 360 and National Collaboration for Youth Mental Health, NCYMH CBC, the organizations believe they can insure more boys and men stay in school, reach their full potential and learn the coping skills needed to withstand the pressures of life.

Bernardsville New Jersey Unveils Charming Mural of Historic Borough

Community comes together to make Bernardsville New Jersey more beautiful

BERNARDSVILLE, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bernardsville, New Jersey is pleased to announce the completion of the Bernardsville Mount Airy Road Mural Project, with an unveiling of a new and long-anticipated mural depicting the historic borough. The mural is a permanent installation and attraction that covers both sides of the bridge on Mount Airy Road, a main thruway for downtown Bernardsville. The mural reads “Welcome to Bernardsville” on one side of the bridge, and on the other side: “Small Town, Big Community”. The unveiling is on Memorial Day, May 31, 2021, free and open for the public to drive or walk by, or attend virtually (more details at https://downtownbernardsville.org).

The Mount Airy Road Mural Project is a collaborative project with the Borough of Bernardsville, the Somerset Hills School District, and Downtown Bernardsville. It is made possible by funds from community donations, sponsorships, and two grants (in 2020 and 2021) from the Somerset County Cultural & Heritage Commission totaling $8,500 through the Commission’s Local Arts Program Grant. Sherwin Williams donated all of the paint and materials. Additional sponsors of the mural are Melilo Equities, Wavelength Audio Video, Gary’s Wine & Marketplace, Jersey Central Power & Light, Advance Realty, Bernardsville Print Center, Borough of Bernardsville, and notable donations from Greg and Mary Jane Canose, Jack and Bonnie Frost, and Diane Greenfield.

To date, approximately $20,000 in funds have been raised of the total $25,000 goal. Additional donations are needed and may be made online here.

The mural was designed by renowned artist, Caren Frost Olmsted. Olmsted involved the Bernardsville community in the creation and painting of the mural, a process that began in October 2019. Olmsted provided guidance to Bernardsville residents of all ages as they painted the mural together in carefully planned sessions in the Bernardsville Train Station over the past several months. Olmsted, a Bernards High graduate, is also the artist of the mural on the Bernardsville Cinema.

“We are thrilled to finally install and celebrate this beautiful mural of Bernardsville,” said Mayor of the Borough of Bernardsville, Mary Jane Canose. “Installation was delayed by a year due to the pandemic, but creative measures were taken to bring it to fruition this year. Bernardsville has never done a beautification project of this scale before. We plan to do more. We want to thank the community, our sponsors and artist Caren Frost Olmsted,” added Mayor Canose.

“The excitement and feedback from the community has been tremendous,” said Olivia Manning, executive director of Downtown Bernardsville. “Beautifying this area is inspiring the community to improve all of Bernardsville. Creative Placemaking projects like this are based on a community-led process that help revitalize downtowns. This is what we hope to accomplish with this project, and more with Downtown Bernardsville,” added Manning.
