When Manchester United legend and current first team coach Phil Neville takes to the pitch in this summer’s Class of ‘92 friendly against Salford City, his energy may be even higher than it was when he helped lead the Red Devils to the Premier League trophy six times – and as he reveals in a brand-new video interview with PETA, that’s because he decided to go vegetarian.Video: Phil Neville: Why I Gave Meat the Red CardIn the interview, Neville credits his wife’s influence with prompting the switch. “My wife’s been vegetarian for about four, five years now”, he says. “I promised my wife that I would try it for two weeks. … I started to feel healthier, leaner. I started to feel great!” And he knows that athletes can get all the nutrition they need, including protein, from plant-based foods such as quinoa, seeds, soya protein and nuts. “It’s made me feel better”, he says. “And I read studies – I hope it makes me live longer.”Neville recognises that he is part of a growing movement towards plant-based diets as society learns more about the health risks associated with meat-rich diets, the damage that animal agriculture has on the environment and the suffering endured by animals raised and killed for their flesh. “I think people are understanding the benefits, not just for yourself but for … the environment”, he says. “2.5 million animals a day are being slaughtered. That is a damning statistic that we need to do something about.” And it’s easy to do something – as Neville says, “If everyone can even just do one day of not eating meat, then that … will mean that we live in a better world.”Neville joins a growing list of top “no-meat athletes”, including boxer David Haye, Olympic cyclist Lizzie Armitstead, strongman competitor Patrik Baboumian, squash world champion James Willstrop and ultra-endurance athlete Rich Roll.

Minister Bannister was speaking in the House of Assembly when he dropped the bomb about alleged malfeasance or bad money management of the Straw Market Authority under the previous government and minister.The new Minister in his remarks exposed that for years and years the financials were unaudited; a direct violation of the SMA Act 2011.“The incomplete Audits for 2013, 2014 and 2015 makes it difficult to commence the process for an audit for 2016 and 2017,” he said. The SMA kept no record of monies collected for the $25 per week government sponsored day care for the vendors, no copies or record of contracted service providers, the Straw Market accounts confirm that exorbitant cell phone bills were paid off to the tune of nearly $34,000, the SMA credit cards were used to rack up big bills, there is no up to date information on the rent status of vendors and over $14,000 in Christmas bonuses were paid out to the SMA executives for 2015 and 2016, one year the payment was not even made at Christmastime.Likely the worst of the news from the report given last Wednesday by Minister Bannister is that the Bay Street World Famous Straw Market is incredibly, still very susceptible to a destructive fire. The Minister said a report was completed by the Ministry of Works and Urban Development since June and the Fire Prevention Section of the Police also handed in a report in July – both warning of the potential for fire and deficiencies in the alarm system. Still none of the recommendations were carried out.A new chair has been appointed to the Straw Market Authority, described as a dynamo by the Minister and named as Kelli Ingraham.#MagneticMediaNews#Nassaustrawmarket Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp

October 11, 2017 Competing in the digital space is tough. There are a lot of websites out there, and rivalry for attention is fierce. Success in the digital landscape is reliant on a smorgasbord of factors, but being “found” ranks among the most critical. You may have great content or a unique interface, but if no one can find your site, you won’t gain much traction.Small businesses face budget limitations when it comes to competing for consumer’s attention and generating business from a website. Enterprises are spending millions of dollars a year to boost search rankings and purchase ads to increase user engagement. But luckily, search success is not reliant on money alone.Related: New Free Work Tools From Google Help You Think Like the Leader of a Billion-Dollar CompanyThe websites that succeed in search are those that adhere to the search algorithms and use the tools available to their advantage. Google offers a whole suite of them, and they all happen to be free. These tools are available to anyone, and yet simply not knowing about them puts you at a disadvantage. To level the advantages, you must start playing on the same field.There are five free tools that every small business should be using to improve the performance of their website:1. Page speed insights.This tool is straightforward and very user friendly. It tests the speed of your website and provides feedback on how to better improve performance based on a series of tests. Not only will this tool tell you how fast your site loads, but it will also tell you how to fix it.If you only have five minutes to use one of these tools, make it this one. It addresses a lot of problems in one quick analysis, and is one of the easiest ways to improve your site without sacrificing too much time. You want to aim to have your site in the 70/100 range and optimally above 85/100 on both mobile and desktop.2. Search console.This tool provides insight into how Google sees your website and what to fix to make it better. These insights are useful because they give you the opportunity to optimize your site and address any aspects that are negatively impacting its rank in search results.Search console will show you things such as how many pages Google has indexed, if you have any suspicious malware on your site and if you have any 404 “page not found” issues. If the tool is telling you to fix something, it means Google cares about it in their search algorithm.Related: A Step-by-Step Guide To Building Your First Mobile App3. Keyword planner.A website’s success on Google is based on one of two things: SEO and Google AdWords. The latter is a unique marketplace that has democratized the digital advertising world. Unlike TV, where ad buys could cost upwards of millions of dollars, Google AdWords empowers anyone with a few dollars to advertise their product or service.Keyword planner is the tool that helps hone your strategy. Taking advantage of this tool is as easy as typing in a few keywords and hitting enter. It will tell you how much a keyword is searched for each month and how competitive it is. 4. Structured data testing tool.Did you know there are more metatags other than title, description and H1 tags? Google is constantly trying to get more information from websites to make the search experience better. One example is “rich snippets,” which provides clues of data to help Google understand specific pages.Rich snippets can tell search engines if a page is about a recipe, hours of operation for a business or details about a video on a page. All of this is helpful to users and Google’s algorithm favors it accordingly. The structured data testing tool tells you if your site is using rich snippets and if any of them are broken or coded incorrectly — and thus not performing optimally.Related: Why You Should Launch Your Website Before It’s Perfect5. Mobile-friendly testing tool.Google rolled out its mobile-preferred search ranking algorithm last year, meaning your site’s rankings depends on your site’s mobile performance. As consumer preference leans towards mobile search — in 2016, mobile search topped desktop searches 51.2 percent to 48.7 percent — Google anticipates the continuation of that trend and requires mobile compatibility for sites ranking among the highest in search results.This mobile testing tool will run an analysis of your site’s capability on mobile devices and lets you know if it is playing friendly on mobile devices. If your site is not mobile friendly, the tool will provide feedback and suggestions on how to fix it.
