Picture Search Engines As Your Tool to Find High Quality Pictures Online

Picture search engines aim to do the impossible: to read pictures. The problem is that search engines in general are only able to read texts. That’s why even big photo sites have to make use of clear descriptions of each photo, because without the text they will not be able to index the pictures and the photos will remain unknown for the web surfer.

You need to know these limitations of search engines if you search for pictures but also when you use pictures online yourself.

The special picture search engines are developed to make the most out of the impossible conditions when searching the web for photos and other pictures. Google and Yahoo and other big search engines (SE) have had to develop special search engines to cope with picture search.

The special search engines for pictures are making use of the file name of the pictures. It is easy to locate picture files. Firstly they are often located in a folder called images, because that is a widespread practice. Secondly and more important the pictures will have one of the special extensions for pictures of which the most common are .jpeg, .jpg, .gif, and .tiff .

So to locate the picture files is not difficult for the SE. The problem comes when the search engine algorithm shall estimate the content of the pictures that is what the picture is about.

If the picture has a filename like dog.jpg it is not difficult. But if the file name is snoopy.jpg it is not so easy. The SE make use of the ALT tag. In the ALT tag an additional text is provided that is coupled to the picture when it is inserted at the webpage. You can see the ALT text when you mouse over the picture, or if for some reason the picture is not being shown on the webpage.

The ALT text is a tool to help blind people to get information about the pictures. As the picture search engines are picture blind as explained they will also make use of the alt text to get information about what the picture is about. In reality only a smaller number of pictures are providing this additional information in the alt tag.

In addition to these approaches the picture search engines are using the text around the picture to estimate what the picture is about. When a caption is obvious it should function as a source of very useful information for what the picture is showing. In practice many captions are not so precise or useful.

You can try to take a look at a number of well visited websites and check if the pictures are easy to identify form their file name, from their alt text (if any) and from the text near to these picture. You will probably see many examples of how these aspects on the websites could be greatly improved.

Anyway the special picture search engines are becoming better and better, and the number of indexed photos and other pictures are immense in the special search engines for images like Google Images and Yahoo Image Search. These search engines for pictures are harvesting the pictures they find on websites and do their best to make them searchable.

You will get at mixture of thumbnail pictures of very low quality – probably the most common pictures online – and better quality photos and other pictures. The high quality photos and pictures in general are more difficult to find or at least more difficult to sort from the mainstream use of low resolution online pictures. High resolution pictures of professional high quality are rather difficult to locate with the picture search engines.

If you are simply interested in seeing a picture as a source of information, like you want to see a picture of an old car model, the picture SE are the first choice.

When you need to find pictures online by searching with the picture search engines you have to be aware of the limited quality of the files as most of the pictures are from amateur photographers, or even from school children. In addition to this limitation you cannot always count on the caption to the pictures. Maybe the car model is not the correct one stated in the caption compared to the car model shown on the picture, and so on.

Besides these considerations you have to be aware of the copyright problems you can get into. So please use a few minutes to update your knowledge with the information below.

Ed Hardy Flats – Super Stylish Ballet Flats For Women

In the fashion world, 2009 could easily be called, «The year of Ed Hardy»!  Ed Hardy Flats are no exception to this – they now are available in several different styles.  As long as you love the bold fashionable looks offered with this brand, there is likely one of these that you will love:

Chelsea – These flats have a quilted patent faux leather upper, each color having a distinctly different selection from the Ed Hardy prints.  Not only are the prints bold and gorgeous, there is a shimmery toe cap on the front of the shoe as well as a shimmering strip on the heel to truly set off the colors on the remaining part of the shoe.   Lovely!

Twisty – These have a similar general look to the Chelsea, however the toe cap is made from a solid color suede rather than a shimmering fabric.  The «Ed Hardy» logo is across the right side of the toe cap.  These flats have a more feminine appearance being closer to a pastel general shade and a fun bow tie on the outside-front of the shoe.  Even though these are a bit more feminine than the style above, there is absolutely no lack of bold patterns and style.

Sin City – Rather than having prints to set this style apart, these shoes feature bold silver studs on the left and right sides.  Colors are solid – there are some gorgeous bright shades to choose from as well as solid black.  The famous signature logo is printed on the sides of the shoe in the front.

Eye Candy – These truly live up to their name in terms of appearance!  They are absolutely gorgeous and are available in several colors and prints.  Suede toe cap with signature on the side – very colorful with bold and striking patterns.  However – from the reviews I have seen with these shoes there is a problem with the back of the shoe rubbing and being less than comfortable and more difficult to wear than the other shoes listed above.

There may be other Ed Hardy Flats in the months to come, but these four styles are perfect for ladies who love a style that could be said to be «out of the fringe»!

Tap Into Your Power and Add EFT to Your Healing Repertoire

I have had the privilege to experience amazing results through the use of an energy healing modality that is so simple my children learned to use it at ages 6 and 8! Now is your opportunity to tap into your power!

Gary Craig is the founder of EFT, or Emotional Freedom Techniques. A tremendous amount of information is available at his website.

In April of 2006 I discovered EFT in response to my daughter's escalating health condition. Chelsea * had been on decongestants, antihistamines and steroid based medicines from age 1 to her then age, 6. She was diagnosed as a "chronic mucus producer." Chelsea would produce so much mucus while lying down to sleep that she would cough until she would vomit. This condition was persistent over the years.

Prescription medicines would provide relief at times. However, at night, while lying down she sounded as if she was drowning in her own mucus.

We reached a period when Chelsea had not slept for 3 nights. Our six year old had dark circles under her eyes and was completely worn out. In April 2006, the doctor put Chelsea on 45 mg. of prednisone. We gave her the medicine to relieve the struggle she was experiencing. Concurrently, I reached my limit with mainstream medicine for Chelsea's condition.

On the evening of her first dose of prednisone, I "Googled" "healing night time cough." To my great surprise, the response was, "EFT practitioner heals 6 year old son of night time cough."

I rushed to my bookshelf and found the bound copy of Gary's workbook I had downloaded two years earlier. I began to read and absorb the material. I then signed up for my first of several EFT Training Classes. By the time Chelsea completed the prescribed dosage of prednisone, I had begun to use the tapping techniques I had learned. We also eliminated dairy products from our diets.

EFT entails using your own fingertips to tap on 10 specific meridian (energy pathways) points on the body. While tapping, you remain focused on the condition that is ailing you.

I began to tap on Chelsea and she immediately went off all of her other medicines for mucus – for good! She is now 9 years old and has not had any prescription medicine.

One Pound Houses

The cheapest street in Britain. On Wednesday I watched a documentary on Liverpool’s housing scheme – the opportunity to purchase a dilapidated house for a pound and do it up. That sounds like a fabulous idea for those struggling to get on the housing-ladder, and several families had accepted the offer and were eagerly renovating their properties.

However a few problems came to light. Because the area the houses were in was a run down district, there was a lot of crime, vandalizing and even shootings, which was frightening for the new residence. There were only a few sales amid rows of empty houses.

The council had apparently had 2500 enquiries for the properties, why couldn’t they move faster at getting more families in thus creating a thriving community of like-minded people working hard at renovating their homes. A higher occupancy would probably lower vandalism.

Another problem the new purchasers had, was their lack of the skill-set required to repair rooves, flooring and completely renovating a shell. The work obviously had to be completed to a high standard and the new purchasers were working to a small budget and doing as much of the work as possible; also sometimes their work was being destroyed by vandalism.

Some may say why was the council selling off housing stock? They had previously been planned to redevelop the area but funding ran out – but there were benefits to the scheme:

Selling the houses for renovation would bring in council tax.

Homes would be provided.

The area would be tidied up and improved with new residents taking pride in their properties.

An improved district, once everyone had moved in, less crime etc.

It seems to me with a few tweaks the scheme could produce a win-win solution. By selling say 50 houses a month in due course the revenue from council tax could be:

50 houses X £100 CT = £5000 per month. Which isn’t being provided whilst houses are empty!

If council tax was halved for the first 6 months whilst the houses were renovated and tuition/support offered from a team of vetted builders, also doing work at a subsidised rate, this would encourage more people to purchase, and the uptake would be faster. (The revenue raised could help provide the services).

A thriving community would quickly develop, reduced crime in the area, some housing deficit satisfied and revenue form council tax for the future.

As this is only the first episode it will be interesting to see how the project develops, and how the council deal with the arising problems. The program returns next week.

History of Middlesbrough Football Club

Middlesbrough Football Club was originally founded in the late 19th century. The club had varying degrees of success but it wasn’t until the times prior to the 2nd World War that the team was in good enough shape to challenge for the major trophies. This team graced by the likes of England internationals like George Hardwick and Wilf Mannion although never winning a trophy, was said to have been capable of going on to win the league had it not been for the outbreak of the war.

It wasn’t until the 70’s arrived that the club had any degree of major success again. This team, containing the likes of David Armstrong and Greame Souness coached by the great Jack Charlton formally a Word Cup winner with England had been the best seen for a while. The promotions seen over this period although impressive produced no trophies to behold.

Into the 80’s the club almost went into liquidation, and if it wasn’t for the financial assistance of a consortium lead by the now chairman and successful businessman Steve Gibson then the club might has disappeared. A boost to the re-emergence of the club in 1986 was funds appreciated by the sale of a number of talented youngsters who had come through the youth system, including but not limited to Gary Pallister and Colin Cooper.

In successive years after the take-over ‘Boro’ as they are affectionately know by their fans cemented themselves as a side good enough to get out of the 2nd tier league but not quite good enough to stay in the top league for very long. An example of this yo-yoing nature being the inclusion of Boro in the very 1st year of the ‘Premier League’ but relegation the year after.

In 1994 Boro attracted probably their highest profiled manager to date in the shape of former England and Manchester United captain Brian Robson. Using the crutch of the squad left to him by his predecessor Lennie Lawrence swell as some good decent professionals like Nigel Pearson and Steve Vickers, who had been brought in, he took the team back into the Premiership. A new season in the top league and the moving into a brand new 30,000 all seater stadium saw a new sense of belief and optimism around the town. This sense of belief was backed with funds and with the captures of the likes of then England international Nick Barmby and the magnificent Brazilian international Juninho the club had one of the best teams in a long time. Boro were to retain their premiership status in the years following, and with the captures of the likes of Champions League winner Fabrizio Ravinelli and the Brazilian powerhouse Emerson football fever was taking over the town. Riding this support the team went on magnificent runs in both the League and FA Cup. Disastrously heartache would soon follow though and Boro fell at the final hurdle in both cups and as if to add insult injury a deduction of 3 points for failing to turn a team out against Blackburn saw the club relegated back to the 2nd tier.

Although the relegation would see the team lose Juninho and Emerson, they were able to capture the high profile Paul Merson and with hope still high the club was dominant in both the League and League Cup seeing them win promotion straight back into the top league and reach the final of the League Cup. The successive season would see boro retain their premiership status but seasons after saw results getting progressively worse culminating in the decision by the board to bring in the experienced former England coach Terry Venables to work alongside Robson. The decision bore fruit and the club was to avoid relegation. Support for the club was dwindling though and change was wanted. The upshot of this being the reluctant sacking of Robson and the bringing in of the then Manchester United assistant manager Steve Mclaren.

Mclaren would bring solidarity to a haphazard team with his strong work ethic and love of professionalism. The football was boring to watch but the team was never to look like relegation material. With this new professionalism and continued financial backing the club would cement their position in the top league, putting behind it the yo-yoing years. Another cup final soon followed and this time Boro were the victors leaving with their first ever major trophy in the shape of the League Cup. This victory would see Boro’s first ever qualification for Europe. The following season would see Boro qualify again for Europe with their best ever Premiership position. The season following this would see Boro push all the way to the EUFA Cup Final, making McClaren the most successful manager in the club’s history.

McClaren though, on the back on his triumphs has recently left the club for the dizzy heights of coaching England. The club has now a great set of players, a great setup, as well as top class youth and reserve teams. With this and recent successes, and the likelihood of continued financial backing, a new manager with worthy credentials I would have thought is only around the corner. And whatever future this brings for the lowly north east football club is yet to be written.

Sammy McIlroy – The Young Veteran

Five Manchester United players featured in the Northern Ireland starting line-up for six matches in the late 1970s: Tommy Jackson, David McCreery, Chris McGrathand, Sammy McIlroy, and Jimmy Nicholl. Former Manchester United favourites Trevor Anderson and George Best also featured.

Samuel McIlroy was born 2 August 1954 in the much troubled city of Belfast in Northern Ireland. Being brought up in the very heart of Protestant East Belfast, he was steeped from an early age in a marinade of politics and religion. Nonetheless, East Belfast has produced a great number of immensely talented Manchester United players up through the years including household names such as George Best, Eric McMordie, David McCreery, and Norman Whiteside. After being discovered by famous United scout Bob Bishop while still a schoolboy player, McIlroy was advised by his family to seek his footballing fortune in the calmer climes of Lancashire as Northern Ireland was tottering on the brink of Civil War.

The last youth player to be signed by legendary Manchester United manager Sir Matt Busby, Sammy McIlroy arrived in Manchester as a modest, fresh faced 14 year old in the summer of 1969. Finding the net on his United debut against fierce rivals Manchester City in November 1971, the gifted youngster quickly became a massive hit with the Old Trafford faithful. Eventually establishing himself in the Manchester United first team during the 1974-75 season, McIlroy proceeded to make a total of 391 appearances for the Reds. The young veteran also played an important part in United’s nothing but fantastic revival under Tommy Docherty in the mid 1970s, winning the Second Division title with the Reds in 1975 and the FA Cup two years later.

Finally deciding to leave Manchester United at the end of the 1981-82 season, Sammy McIlroy went on to appear for Stoke City, Manchester City, Bury, Preston North End, and Northwich Victoria. The hard working Ulsterman also had an extraordinary international career, gaining a total of 88 caps for his beloved Northern Ireland between 1972 and 1987.

«The Protestant people in Northern Ireland were used and abused by the British. How could you have working class people living in poverty voting Tory? You looked at two working class people shooting each other and you asked how was that possible. It was divide and conquer, the British trait from the year dot.»

Paddy Crerand quote.

Manchester United Under Malcolm Glazer

Manchester United is a term which is known to football fans all over the world. It is a football club, an English football club to be precise. It is based on Old Tafford, United Kingdom. They are also known as the «Red Devils» of England. It is one of the most famous and popular football club with more than 300 million supporters all over the world. 300 million can be roughly estimated as 5% of the total population! They are the most successful and influential club and ever since the 1990s they are rumored to be the richest clubs in existence. The club had a humble beginning during the initial stages and was even closed down on number of occasions due to mounting debts.

Being initially called the Newton Health Y&R, it was said to be sponsored by a health club. Five European trophies have been credited to them ever since the club came into existence. This included one international cup, one European super cup, two European champion’s cup, one cup winner cup. They were bestowed with 12 domestic cups and 16 premier league cups too. They were also relevant in finding and establishing Europe’s G-14 football club. Malcolm Glazer who was an American businessman had invested on Manchester United in 2005. He had paid a staggering $1.47 billion just for a 28.7% share on the team. It was after a year long battle in the courts that he could ultimately get his hands on the team.

He had faced difficulties in claiming the club, due to the facts the takeover had made the club poorer by $850 million. Also he being a businessman, fans did not like the idea of a business man holding the reins of one of the most successful football clubs of the world. They had hoped for someone who had adequate knowledge about the sport to invest on the club. Escalating prices of the tickets also angered the fans as the club often received hefty sums from advertisements and sponsorship dealings. A vast majority of the fans even went to the extent of not renewing their season tickets for the forth coming matches of the Manchester United. Songs disrespecting Glazer and his sons can still be heard on many matches played by Manchester United.

Fans worldwide have been largely discontent by the takeover of the club by Malcolm Glazer. He had played significantly no role in the upcoming of the football club. His children were the ones who enjoyed director posts of the club for sometime. Despite these shortcomings, the club has surged forward under his guidance. He had spent quite large sums of money on the club and even more in roping the world’s best football players into the club. The club had won two major cups in 2008 itself, the English Premier League and UEFA Champions League. It is to be noted that the Glazer group does not interfere with the daily business dealings of Manchester united and have left such activities to David Gill, the chief executive of Manchester united. Steep increase in the prices of the tickets had prompted many faithful followers to stay away from the club matches.

Sir Matt Busby – The Godfather of Manchester United

Sir Matt Busby was the manager at Manchester United from 1945 to 1969, taking the club to both League and Cup honours during his long and distinguished career at Old Trafford.

Sir Matt Busby took over the reins at Manchester United in October 1945, although his contract had been signed the previous February. From the moment the 35-year-old demobilized company sergeant-major arrived at the club things would never be the same again. The former Manchester City and Liverpool player immediately put his mark on the club and he demanded powers over the appointment of personnel and the buying and selling of players. Busby’s socialism no doubt transformed Manchester United into one of the giants of English football and during his first three years in charge the club finished First Division runners-up three times in a row as well as winning the FA Cup in 1948.

In 1958 tragedy struck when a British European Airways Elizabethan plane hit Munich Airport’s perimeter fence during its third attempt at take-off. After winning the Championship in 1952, 1956 and 1957, Busby’s immensly gifted Manchester United side were tragically destroyed. However, the legendary manager continued his search for the Holy grail and he will always be remembered for the European Cup Final in 1968 when Manchester United went on to trash Benfica 4-1. The memorable victory at Wembley Stadium was fully recognised as the long serving manager was most deservedly knighted in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List shortly after.

When Sir Matt died on the 20th of January 1994, a vast amount of dedicated Manchester United supporters turned out to pay their last respects to the Scottish manager. On the 27th of April 1996, Manchester United Football Club unveiled a bronze statue at the Scoreboard End of Old Trafford in honour of the great man who was simply known as Mr. Manchester United. Sir Matt Busby had a second spell as Old Trafford manager during the 1970-71 season and he continued to be involved with the club for several years after his retirement.

«Resting in Interlaken, Germany was one thing and facing Old Trafford another. When I approached the ground and moved over the bridge along which our supporters had squeezed fifty abreast in there tens of thousands to shout for us I could scarcely bear to look. I knew the ghosts of the babes would still be there, and there they are still, and they will always be there as long as those who saw them still cross the bridge, young, gay, red ghosts on the green grass of Old Trafford.»

Sir Matt Busby quote.
