The Local General Election is set for Saturday, November 15, 2014 to elect one (1) Mayor and eight (8) Councilllors to City Council and four (4) School Trustees to the Board of School District No. 23.

"I have the experience to lead our city of Kelowna to being the best, most beautiful mid-sized city in North America. During my 3 terms as councilor and 2 terms as Mayor I pursued the needs of our community relentlessly and diligently. With a number of new faces poised to join city council and facing a number of crucial initiatives, such as the revitalization of City Park, the development of the various town centres in Rutland, Glenmore and South Pandosy, the protection of our lakefront, the continued success of our business community, the growth of our technology sector, and the importance of our air and water quality, it is vital that we have leadership with the experience necessary to navigate the difficult waters ahead."

LinkedIn Groups: The lack of exchange and interaction

A question for LinkedIn Group members: Why are you a member of a group?

"LinkedIn Groups provide a place for professionals in the same industry or with similar interests to share content, find answers, post and view jobs, make business contacts, and establish themselves as industry experts."

The REAL members of a group are the ones sharing incredible articles, and trying to share valuable information with you. Where are you? Are you just reading the articles? A feedback is always appreciated. How do you feel when you are trying to do something and nobody tells you how good or bad you are doing whatever you are doing? Do you know that there is a bottom below the article that you can use to make comments about it? YES, you can make comments, 'like' the article, and even 'share it'.

Are these actions the reflection of the local business communities? Is there an actual local business community? Don't complaint when you receive the same treatment out there.

Ever wish that you could use your tablet as a monitor for your camera?

All you need is a compatible mobile device, a compatible camera, and the right USB cable.

The foundation of your online business. The pillars that you can not underestimate - Does your website have a title, a description, and a keywords tag?

There are different ways to check the html code of your website, but let use a generic method available in the major browsers. Open your browser, and go to your website. Once your website is fully loaded, right click on the body of that page (I recommend to use the left or right section of the center of the screen).

Depending of the browser, a pop-up window will be displayed in the center of the screen. Click now on View source, or View Page Source. The message is different depending of the browser you are using.

Once the coding source is display, press the keys: Ctrl and F (Keep the key Ctrl pressed, and then press the key F). Now, you will be able to search on that page. Search for: 'title'. All the words 'title' will be highlighted. Do the same for 'description', and 'keywords'. If you can find these words, you will be able to read the information that your website is actually using for those tags, and sharing with the Search Engines.

Whatever you can find between <title> and </title> is the title of that page, the 'content' of <meta name="description"... is the current description of that page, and the 'content' of <meta name="keywords"... are the keywords of your website. The keywords should be separated by commas. If any or all of these tags are missing, or showing incorrect information, then it's time to call whoever created your website.
