The Harpy Eagle

The Harpy Eagle

What is a Harpy Eagle?

harpy eagle is a large bird of prey. It is one of the world’s heaviest and most powerful birds. Imagine going a week without food! The harpy eagle has the ability to do this. Like many birds of prey, the harpy eagle is a patient hunter and can wait quietly in a tree before attacking prey.

The harpy eagle is a carnivore, which means it only eats meat. The large size of this bird allows it to easily attack and kill opossums, iguanas, and small deer, as well as tree-dwelling mammals such as monkeys and sloths.

Like all birds of prey, harpy eagles have sharp talons used for catching food.

What Do They Look Like?

Harpy eagles have grey feathers covering their wings, back, and head. They have a distinctive collar of black feathers around their neck, and their chests are white. Their legs are white with black stripes, and they can raise the feathers on their head when they feel threatened, similar to the way a cat raises its fur.

They are 35-41 inches tall. Females can be twice as big as their male counterparts, weighing up to 20 pounds, while a heavy male is around 10 pounds. While they might differ in size, males and females have the same color patterns, unlike males and females of other bird species.

Harpy eagles can tuft the hair on their heads when they feel threatened.

Where Do Harpy Eagles Live?

Harpy eagles live in the rainforests of Central and South America from Southern Mexico to northern Argentina. The early explorers to the rainforests of this area named the bird Harpyja, from Greek mythology, meaning half-woman, half-bird.

In Brazil, harpy eagles are called Royal Hawks, and they are also known as American harpy eagles in other parts of the world.

Because the harpy eagle eats mostly tree-dwelling animals, you can find this bird living in the canopy of the rainforest trees searching for prey and building nests.

Harpy eagles have very few predators, but they are experiencing the same loss of habitat through deforestation, poaching and hunting as other rainforest animals.

Harpy eagles live in the lower level of the rainforest rather than up in the canopy.

The harpy eagle (Harpia harpyja) is a neotropical species of eagle. It is also called the American harpy eagle to distinguish it from the Papuan eagle, which is sometimes known as the New Guinea harpy eagle or Papuan harpy eagle.[3] It is the largest and most powerful raptor found in the rainforest,[4] and among the largest extant species of eagles in the world. It usually inhabits tropical lowland rainforests in the upper (emergent) canopy layer. Destruction of its natural habitat has caused it to vanish from many parts of its former range, and it is nearly extirpated in Central America. In Brazil, the harpy eagle is also known as royal-hawk (in Portuguesegavião-real).[5]

Hyper Sonic Comprehensive Guide to Banner Ads

Hyper Sonic Comprehensive Guide to Banner Ads

Hyper Sonic Comprehensive Guide to Banner Ads

One of the most important pieces of any advertising initiative is the creative. Within digital advertising, there are some creative sizes that serve impressions better than others. Below are guidelines concerning any banner creative uploaded into Hyper Sonic IP Targeting system. All creatives submitted through Hyper Sonic are audited externally for sufficient branding, content restrictions, false advertising, and proper functionality.

File Size

Keep in mind that the most optimal file size is anything at or under 40KB. However, we can work with files up to 80KB in size. Anything over 80KB creates a heavy limitation on the serving capacity of the creative, and will most likely fail to generate impressions.

Branding

The brand logo must be prominently displayed on the banner ad and consistent through all assigned landing pages. Below are two creatives- one with improper branding, and one with proper branding. As you can see, it’s just as simple as providing the proper brand logo somewhere in the ad.

Most Common Display Ad Sizes

  • 250 x 250 – Square
  • 200 x 200 – Small Square
  • 468 x 60 – Banner
  • 728 x 90 – Leaderboard
  • 300 x 250 – Inline Rectangle
  • 336 x 280 – Large Rectangle

Creative Frames

The image below shows all the creative sizes we support, as well as a graphical representation of the ad frame. The dimensions below are in pixels.

 

 

Also known as a “medium rectangle“. Tends to have more ad inventory available from advertisers, which can increase earnings when both text and image ads are enabled.

Also known as a “leaderboard“. Tends to have more ad inventory available from advertisers, which can increase earnings when both text and image ads are enabled.

Performs well if placed above main content, and on forum sites.

Sometimes referred to as a “half page“. This format provides a larger space for advertisers to get their message across and can offer users rich engagement.

The 300×600 is one of the fastest growing sizes by impressions and is indicative of a trend where publishers are offering more visually impactful ad sizes that are preferred by brand advertisers.

Also known as the “large mobile banner“. Can be used an an alternative to the 320×50 and the 300×250.

These ads offer advertisers twice the height of our standard “mobile leaderboard”.

Content Restrictions

Captivating WordPress Theme for Bloggers

So you’re just getting started on this new adventure and you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing?  Friend, you are not alone!  Many many people just like you walk this road every single day and the key is to just take it one step at a time.  It wasn’t that long ago that I was sitting right where you are, and have since learned everything I can get my hands on regarding design, code, and everything else involved in website creation.  I’m here to help guide you through this one baby step at a time. Imagine me sitting right along side you at my coffee table and we are doing this together… because my big fat God dream is to absolutely do that!

STEP ONE: LET’S DECIDE ON A NAME

Choosing a name for this big adventure you’re embarking on is no easy feat.  It takes time and patience to find that perfect name that fits your hearts desire.  It also takes time to find the perfect name that isn’t already taken!  That my friend, is the hardest part of this process.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve come up with some brilliant business name and then I go check to see if the name is available and sure enough it’s not.  Before you let your heart get too settled on a specific name, you’ll want to do 2 things: Google it, and search to see if the domain is available.

So what is a domain?  A domain is your address on the internet.  Just as you would give someone your mailing address for them to mail you a letter, you’ll want to give your friends a domain address to be able to find your online home. You can search domain names right here to see what is already taken and what is available.

Why do we need to google the name?  If you want to name your new business Gold & Silver, but you google these words and several other businesses come up, you’re not only going to be competing for google ranking alongside those people with the same business name, you also may run into trademark issues depending on the nature of the other businesses with the same name.  Trust me, you don’t want to get months down the road and get a Cease & Desist letter because your business name is conflicting with someone else. Think of a unique name and take your time!

Once you’ve decided on a name and have discovered the domain is available, it’s time to actually purchase that domain. You can use a service like GoDaddy to purchase your domain but more than likely you’re going to be ready to get your website started immediately, so I recommend moving to the next step and doing your domain and hosting all at the same time.

STEP TWO: PURCHASE DOMAIN & HOSTING

The next thing we want to do is secure that domain name that we’ve spent so much time thinking up.  There are a few hosting companies that allow you to get 1 free domain when you sign up for a hosting package, so I recommend doing this step all together.  If you’ve already purchased your domain elsewhere, don’t worry… I’ll cover that as well!

So what is hosting? Let’s think of this like we discussed above with your domain being your address.  If you give someone your address to your home, your home is sitting on a piece of land.  The hosting is like the land for your online home.  It consist of servers, files, and databases that keep your site visible and on the internet.  No website exist without hosting.

The two hosting companies that we recommend that give you 1 free domain name are SiteGround and Bluehost.  Both of these companies are great so you’re free to choose whichever one you’d like to work with.  For the sake of this guide, I’m going to be working with SiteGround because I’ve found that their process is very simple and easy to understand for someone just starting out, just like you!

When you go to purchase hosting, you’re going to be asked which hosting package you’d like to select. I recommend that since we are going to be using WordPress (more on this later) that we choose on of the WordPress Hosting Packages. These packages get you started for very little start up cost, and again, includes your domain in the setup process.

DIFFERENCES IN THE PLANS:

StartUp – This package is good for one site and up to 10,000 visits a month and is the most basic plan they offer.
GrowBig – With this plan you are able to host multiple websites within one account, get a free SSL Wildcard for 1 year, and their Backup and Restore service which I find to be very very important especially as a new site owner. Another great benefit that starts at this plan or higher, is their SuperCacher option which will greatly increase the speed of your site.
GoGeek – This place includes all that you see above, as well as more storage space, allows for more site visitors,  and offers 1-click WP staging which is also a helpful feature if you’re one to change your site often.

The next predicted appearance of Halley’s Comet is 28 July 2061. How old will you be?

Halley’s Comet

or Comet Halley, officially designated 1P/Halley,[3] is a short-period comet visible from Earth every 74–79 years.[3][10][11][12] Halley is the only known short-period comet that is regularly visible to the naked eyefrom Earth, and the only naked-eye comet that might appear twice in a human lifetime.[13] Halley last appeared in the inner parts of the Solar System in 1986 and will next appear in mid-2061.[14]

Halley’s returns to the inner Solar System have been observed and recorded by astronomers since at least 240 BC. Clear records of the comet’s appearances were made by ChineseBabylonian, and medieval Europeanchroniclers, but were not recognized as reappearances of the same object at the time. The comet’s periodicity was first determined in 1705 by English astronomer Edmond Halley, after whom it is now named.

During its 1986 apparition, Halley’s Comet became the first comet to be observed in detail by spacecraft, providing the first observational data on the structure of a comet nucleus and the mechanism of coma and tailformation.[15][16] These observations supported a number of longstanding hypotheses about comet construction, particularly Fred Whipple‘s “dirty snowball” model, which correctly predicted that Halley would be composed of a mixture of volatile ices – such as watercarbon dioxide, and ammonia – and dust. The missions also provided data that substantially reformed and reconfigured these ideas; for instance, it is now understood that the surface of Halley is largely composed of dusty, non-volatile materials, and that only a small portion of it is icy.

IP TARGETING

IP TARGETING

IP TARGETING

IP Targeting is the digital equivalent of direct mail, only much more efficient. The process involves converting household physical addresses to Internet Protocol Addresses (ie. 100.2.100.101). Ads are then served to the home’s ISP aggregator (WiFi router) and placed on any device, mobile or desktop, using that home’s WiFi service.

STEP 1: IDENTIFY

YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE

We begin the process by identifying the physical addresses of YOUR TARGET CUSTOMER. Our lists include consumers segmented by demographics, interests, profession, even by what type of car they drive. We then convert their physical addresses to the IP Addresses (ie. 100.2.100.101) of the WiFi routers in each customer’s home.

STEP 2: INFLUENCE

CUSTOMERS AT KEY MOMENTS IN THEIR PURCHASE JOURNEY

With our IP Targeting solution, you can finally connect face-to-face with your best potential customers. We utilize cross-device technology within a household to deliver your advertisement across all devices that are actively connected to the in-home Wi-Fi service. When the customer visits any one of the millions of publishers in our vast network of ad exchanges, your ad will be triggered to display – engaging them to visit your site.

STEP 3: MEASURE

SALES RESULTS

Our Matchback reporting is performed post-campaign enabling us to compare the IP recipient list to your customer sales report. This report is a great metric to help you measure the influence your IP campaign had on purchasing decisions, providing quantifiable results. When we find a match between a customer’s physical address and a targeted IP address, we call that a Matchback. We also offer campaign insights including observations, strengths, and weaknesses to help you evaluate your IP Targeting performance. With our leading expertise in digital marketing, our team will provide you with professional feedback and suggestions to help improve your future IP Targeting campaigns.

REAL-TIME REPORTING – HYPERBASE™

Our private platform, HYPERbase™, will provide you with 24/7 access to real-time reporting allowing you to view your site’s traffic and monitor your campaign’s performance daily. You will see instantly how many people are visiting your site while they are at home or on-the-go.
