Best for mobile content

Wix

Wix has loads of templates and features that make it easy for beginners, and a special mobile editor as well.

All businesses — no matter how big or small — need a strong and compelling website if they want to stand out from the crowd. 

Whether you’re starting your own business or simply thinking about it, looking to create an online shop or just boost your client list, it’s important to consider what your online presence is going to look like. Without a website, you might as well not exist.

There’s a common misconception that developing a website takes hundreds of hours, or the work of a team of professionals. These days, you can create your own website through one of many website

Wix and WordPress are two of the best ways to build a website. However, on balance, we think that Wix is the better way to build a website, thanks to its greater level of customization and the ease with which you can add extra features to your site. WordPress does have the advantage when it comes to building blogs and journalism websites, but Wix is ultimately a more versatile builder, and has regular deals and discounts to help it compete..

Right out of the gate, Wix is a notably powerful website builder. Using

How To Create a Blog in Seven Easy Steps 2020

How To Create a Blog For Free

You can create a blog for free – but you probably wouldn’t want to, for a few reasons.

Ads on Your Site

Firstly, you’ll be lumbered with adverts for whichever blog platform you use. This might be simply a line at the bottom of your page telling people which platform you use, or it might be banner adverts along the top and sides of your page. Either way, it doesn’t look great. And these ads won’t be making money for you, either, but for the website builder platform you’re using.

Storage Restrictions

Secondly, you’ll be restricted on storage. We’ve mentioned this before, but it’s a critical flaw with free website builders – with restrictions on storage ranging from 500mb to 3GB on free packages, it’s going to be extremely unlikely that you could store your photos, videos and other assets on your site.

AiDash Taps UP42 Earth Observation Platform to Create Vegetation Management System

Noble Horvath

AiDash, a satellite analytics company based in Santa Clara, Calif., has launched a predictive vegetation management product for utilities that leverages the UP42 Earth observation marketplace.

AiDash’s satellite-powered intelligent vegetation management system (IVMS) has reduced outages and reduced vegetation management costs for a Fortune 500 electric utility.

“Easy access to satellite data using UP42 formed the backbone of our IVMS solution,” said AiDash CEO Abhishek Vinod Singh. “The archive of historical high-resolution satellite imagery, which is hard to find elsewhere, is readily available from UP42.”

Keeping vegetation trimmed near power distribution lines is an expensive and time-consuming – yet critical – task for electric utilities. Encroachment by bushes and trees can cause wide-spread outages and spark devastating wildfires. Energy utilities worldwide spend billions of dollars each year to continuously monitor vegetation in their powerline corridors from the ground and the sky, often using manned and unmanned aircraft.

Ypsi-area residents create website, grassroots organization to encourage civic engagement

Noble Horvath

When Ypsilanti resident and community activist Gail Summerhill hears a politician tell constituents, “Register and go vote,” she says it makes her feel like cussing.

 

“It’s like a knife every time I hear it. All you ever hear is ‘register and go vote,’ but you’re assuming that a person’s life is like yours when you make that statement,” she says. “It’s like saying to someone, ‘Take the keys to my car and go to Kroger and get a loaf of bread and bring it back.’ And you find out it’s a stick shift and you’ve never driven a stick shift.”

 

Empowering Ypsilanti-area residents with the building blocks of civic education is the goal behind the grassroots organization and website Summerhill and a team of friends created: Ypsi, Can I Share?

 

The website “is filling a communication gap most people and groups involved in community activism and politics ignore,” says Ypsi,

Undergraduates create Nooks web application to rival Zoom

Noble Horvath

Daniel Lee ’21 M.S. ’22, Rohan Suri ’21 and Andrew Qu of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) teamed up to create a new video conferencing software called Nooks, with new features that attempt to outdo Zoom’s capabilities. The platform has been adopted by some colleges and Stanford classes, with the developers hoping Nooks will become more widely adopted nationwide.

Zoom Video Communications, Inc. has seen an unprecedented increase in popularity in the past year as the majority of events and interactions have moved online, even as the company has faced criticism over privacy and security concerns. Google Meet, FaceTime and Skype have not been able to match Zoom’s hundreds of millions of users.

Suri said the biggest advantage of Nooks over Zoom is its user-friendly interface. The app’s landing page boasts that Nooks is “the easiest way to host engaging and interactive workshops, classes, conferences and more.”

Within a Nooks session,
