China is having a hard time in fighting pollution which has continued to worsen each day. The launching of $8.13billion environmental protection fund policy to curb pollution is one step ahead that the country has taken. Though these funds will be allocated to critical industries, there is no industry that has been specified yet. Analysts are anticipating that some of these funds will go to the water treatment industry. This policy has been welcomed because it is being viewed as a solution to environment protection because; the role played by pollution treatment industries will be boosted.

Pollution has been one of Chinas’ problems at hand that requires urgent action to be taken. The government has been able to come up with solutions which include: eliminating some high-polluting plants, installing pollution controls especially on coal-fired plants and altering requirements for particulate matter reduction. The government has also been able to come up with trial emission trading program in several cities. The program requires annual absolute emissions reductions in all companies in service and manufacturing sectors. Economists are viewing the market-based solutions as the best to curb external pollution. The solution will help both private and public actors to reduce pollution using price signals.

Although these policies have been enacted, there is a major problem when it comes to implementing them. Major stakeholders which include major corporations of the state, state owned enterprises among others have refused to comply or are reluctant to comply with environmental protection policies. State owned enterprises are supposed to be forced to comply with these policies if not; pollution will still be a major problem. The government of China has extensive environment regulations but the problem is implementing them. This is why even installing  air purifiers built for the whole house is a problem.

Despite having all these regulation on book, there are several steps that the government has to take. The use of coal which is being used widely with some major companies in China has to be regulated. Coal that has to be used is supposed to be used less than 2% and companies using coal have to install dust removal equipments. Let’s face the fact, China is one of the industrialized countries in this third world generation but it has more than enough to do to deal with pollution problem. All major companies both private and public and everyone have to come together and implement these policies if they have to win the war against pollution.

This lovely newlywed couple are now the proud owners of The Mill House. The Mill House is a lovely 17th- century manor that is on the River Thames in the British countryside and has an amazing nine bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The home is said to be fit for a king and queen.

This beautiful couple closed on their new home only nine days after their wedding. The Oscar winner and lawyer will be the king and queen over this beautiful estate with crystal chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling drapes. The entire house looks like something out of a dream.

The Mill House sits on a four-acre island in the Thames as it straddles the counties of Oxfordshire and Berkshire. They have a lovely garden with a wood-hewn footbridge over a peaceful stream along with outdoor patio furniture. The flowers are beyond beautiful, and the bushes are exquisite.

While we do not know how much this couple paid for the home, it had been listed at $16 million dollars. The home is beautiful and would leave anyone that entered entirely speechless. The marble and gorgeous central staircase are jaw dropping to say the least. There is also the drawing room that has a magnificent fireplace and a chandelier.

The upstairs master bedroom has a dressing room as well as a marble bathroom. The dining room is green and can fit at least twenty guests. The kitchen is not exactly attractive, but it does have state-of-the-art appliances. There is also a breakfast room, gym, steam room and library.

The lawn is amazing as it stretches out far down to the Thames. Besides for the beautiful footbridge that we mentioned earlier, there is also a greenhouse and a garden with mature trees and beds of flowers.

There is a boathouse with a covered dock. There are several moorings and landing points to bring the boat. Don’t forget about the guest cottage which is nothing to sneeze at due to its ability to rival many Hamptons mansions.

Clooney and his new wife were spotted over the weekend at the Bull Inn which was made famous by Jerome K. Jerome’s 1889 novel called the Three Men in a Boat.

Three Men in a Boat

Neighbors seem to be excited about the newbies that are moving in, but some do not believe Clooney will have much time to spend here since he will be working in America so much. It’s just a small hop across the pond though, so who knows how often Clooney will get to visit and spend time.

Some of the neighbors that are close by are famous singers, illusionists and more. When the banker who sold the house asked if he had sold it to Clooney and his new wife, he did not make a comment about it. He said that he couldn’t say, but he did not deny that he had sold it to the Hollywood elite.

Hopefully, we will be able to see some photos of the newlywed couple in their new home, but time will tell.

Internet surfing is no longer confined to desktops and laptops. Nowadays people use all sorts of devices to browse the net. It makes sense to design a website that is compatible across computers, smart phones and tablets. This is where Responsive Web Design comes to our aide. This technology had surfaced in the market way back in 2012. But in the last year it started creating waves and web designers started taking RWD seriously once they realized its benefits over traditional designing.

Earlier the norm was to have separate websites for mobile platforms and computers. After the user clicks on the URL they would be taken to a website based on the device of the user. Thus the websites had to incur separate development and maintenance cost for each platform dependent version.

RWD goes for an entirely new concept. It creates responsive or intelligent web pages that identify the device from which the request has come and present them in the compatible format. The cost is also reduced to a large extent once the RWD has been implemented.

Another very important point to check is whether RWD websites provide SEO benefits or not. You cannot afford to incorporate every new technology into your website unless it gives you SEO benefits. RWD scores high in this respect too. There are a number of SEO advantages that RWD websites provide:

 

  1. Google rewards RWD websites

In the Google dominated cyberspace we must keep in mind the way Google rewards or penalizes websites. Google favours RWD websites and in fact they encourage developers to use responsive web designing.

When there is segregation between mobile and desktop websites it means more work for Google search engine. On the other hand an RWD optimized website can be easily crawled on and indexed by the web spiders and results can be presented to the user within a very short time. Thus you can get in the good books of Google if you opt for RWD which is very important if you want your website to get a good rank in the search results.

 

  1. 1 to 1 mapping for Website to URL

Using RWD you can create 1 website for 1 URL. There is no need to customize a separate website for mobile devices. However in some cases a separate website might be useful. When the data volume is high a different layout is necessary to present all the information on the mobile screen. The same layout as that of the desktop version will become very strenuous to read for the mobile user. But then 2 different websites would mean you would need to bear double costs for the SEO features of both the sites. In case of RWD only one time SEO implementation will serve your purpose.

You will also get ease of sharing as a bonus. Whether the target traffic is a mobile user, or a tablet user or a laptop user is immaterial to you. 1 website will cater to the needs of all.

 

  1. Low Bounce Rate

A website featuring high in search results also often faces the issue of high bounce rate. To make a website suitable for viewing through mobile devices the designers often edit the content ruthlessly and the end product might turn out to be something totally different from that on the original website. This will result in a high bounce rate and Google will penalize the website ranking as a consequence.

 

bounce rate

A RWD website will take care of this problem. Since the website is presented across different platforms the issue of irrelevant content does not arise at all. This helps in keep a check on the bounce rate. The website is assured of getting a good rank from Google.

 

  1. Enhanced User Experience

The modern day internet users are as likely to view content through their mobile phones and tablets as through their laptops and desktops. So it is imperative that the content remains exactly same for both views. RWD websites can be easily used for information sharing. A person can send an interesting link from his laptop to his friend who could be viewing the same in his mobile phone. The sender would not need to worry about whether the intended information got lost in transit if the website has implemented RWD.
