Guest Post

It is the aim of every company to be projected in all spheres and dimensions, and one way to do this is to properly keep track of the blogs on your site. Guest post guidelines are designed to serve as a check to poorly written or irrelevant blogs, such that your blogs will always be at the standard you expect.

It is a positive thing to make your website receptive to the views of your guest, as it is a means of building a very good rapport with your guests. It also gives you the opportunity to tap into the ideas of your guests by getting suggestions from them that can help the progress of your company. But that notwithstanding, this progress has to be done with great care and diligence.

In the hypothetical case, it would be expected that all the submissions on your blogs would be made by experienced people who are familiar with your blogs, but in reality this is far from the truth. You would have to spend endless time reading through a series of irrelevant posts before you will come across the relevant ones that are fit for publishing.

But with a well-created guest post guideline, you would not have to go through these hectic moments, as it will provide a systematic guideline on all the things your guests have to be accustomed to before posting their contents on your website.

First of all, you need to have an opening message on your site that clearly spells out the fact that you readily accept the posts of your guests, but the contents should be limited to only a specialty. It gives your guests the chance to know who you are as well as what is entailed in your contents, so they will be aware of the nature of contents you require.
You are very likely to be under the impression that anyone visiting your site knows your contents, but you will be marvelled to know the nature of posts you will receive if you don’t have a clear-cut opening message that spells out your specialty.

It also gives a description of your target group as well as the specific audience you wish to serve. This will not only prevent irrelevant messages, but will also ensure you get the right writers. Another significance of the opening note is that is explains the aims, objectives, vision and mission of your company to the outside world.

Furthermore, make it a point to make a clear statement as to the calibre of people that can write on your blogs so that the posts you receive will be right on point. For instance, if you only accept posts from doctors, lawyers, lecturers, etc make it known so that your posts will be well-guided.

Also, if you provide remuneration for the contents of your guests, that should also be stated. Even though this might attract irrelevant posts from unqualified personnel, it will also serve as an incentive for serious-minded writers who have the potential of giving your contents a facelift.

Flooding

Tirunelveli has faced some of the heaviest floods over the years. These floods has caused the district huge losses. The land, which is networked by a lot of water bodies, needs proper drainage systems and controls to manage water flow. The major river in the district which usually overflows its banks during heavy rains is the Thamirabarani River. It originates from the hills of the Western Ghats where its most extensive catchment area also lies and discharges into the sea at the Gulf of Mannar. The river is perennial, enjoying the full benefit of the Northeast and Southwest Monsoons. It is heavily recharged by rains from these winds. The floods usually occur when the Northeast Monsoon blows. The river together with its tributaries drains a total area of about 4400 km2.

The Thamirabarani River, though beneficial for power generation and irrigation, has caused a lot of havoc and destruction through floods over the years. One major flood that hit Tirunelveli in 1992 claimed hundreds of lives and destroyed a lot of property. Heavy rains caused some of the dams built across the river to rise above their safe levels, hence had to be released suddenly. Channels created for the river could not hold the overflow.

In July 2005, torrential rains in the Western Ghats caused heavy floods in Alanthuraiyar and Panagudi destroying about 100 houses. Officials attributed the flood to the opening of the shutters of some irrigation tanks. Heavy rains in the village of Kanyakumari also caused serious havoc. All waterfalls at Courtallam and the Kuththarapaanjan falls also overflowed that month.

In November 2006, another flood hit Tirunelveli destroying over 500 acres of paddy field. Heavy rains caused a breach of 6 irrigation tanks in Melaneelithanallur and Kayathar Unions causing this destruction. The villages of North Chezhiyanallur and Keezha Pillaiyarkulam were also badly hit. The village of Vaasagasaalai was totally cut off from mainland.

In November last year (2014), torrential rains in the Western Ghats caused some of the waterfalls to flood catchment communities. The waterfalls that caused the flooding included Manimuthaaru and Paana Theertham falls. The Agasthiar falls also flowed with fury but did not cause any havoc as people were advised not to go near the area. A breach of the Pambankulam tank near Nanguneri occurred, flooding the village of Krishnaputhur. Rainfall recorded in the area during this period was about 165 mm. Other places recorded as high as 190 mm.

Can these floods be stopped, or their effects minimized? Yes. The natural causes of the floods will always be there, but there are proactive ways through which it can be prevented or its force reduced. The first is to ensure proper management and maintenance of flow channels. Also, all encroachments on the channels must be cleared for free flow. Dams, tanks and reservoirs must be assessed before the monsoons, and weak walls/barriers maintained and fortified.

When floods occur, low-lying areas are mostly affected. People living in such areas must be sensitized and advised to move out to higher grounds when rainy seasons approach, to prevent loss of lives and property.

movie

Birdman, the best movie of 2014, scooped up 4 Oscars in this year’s Academy Awards. The well rated movie won the Best Picture Award, Best Cinematography and Original Screenplay. Alejandro González Iñárritu, the director, co-producer and screenplay co-writer also won the Best Director award for the movie. The movie had 9 unprecedented nominations. Alejandro’s input for the success of the movie was immense.

IMDb rated the movie 7.9 out of 10, Rotten Tomatoes 93%, Roger Erbert 4 out of 4 and Metacritic 88%. The movie also won other awards including the Outstanding Cast in a Motion Picture at the 21st Screen Actors Guild Awards. It also won the Best Screenplay, and Michael Keaton won the Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Award for his role as leading actor of the movie at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards.

It took 2 years for the writers to complete the script and the movie was meticulously and painstakingly shot. The camera work depicts most of the film as one continuous take. Alejandro’s idea for doing this was to immerse the protagonist in an unavoidable reality, while at the same time pulling viewers along with him. Experts who heard of this clearly said the idea was suicidal. It was a step with two feet in unknown waters. However, Alejandro was able to execute it successfully. The movie is 119 minutes long and in English.

The sound quality, musical backing and visual effects are good. The plot is excellent and reflects on the realities of life. It is about a drowned Hollywood actor, Riggan Thomson (Keaton), who wants to pick himself up by writing, directing and starring in a new movie by Broadway. Riggan is picked for the leading role. He has a difficult start especially in the previews. Along the line he chanced upon his daughter, Samantha (Emma Stone), a recovering addict, using marijuana. He criticises her but she revolts with some harsh remarks.

The situation becomes worse when Riggan also finds out that his daughter is flirting with Mike Shiner (Edward Norton), the brilliant but volatile method actor he brought in to replace Ralph (Jeremy Shamos). Videos of Riggan in his underwear walking through Times Square go viral and it tears him apart. He had accidentally locked himself out of the theatre and the only way he could get inside was to walk out there.

The influential critic, Tabitha Dickinson (Lindsay Duncan), also tells Riggan she will give a bad review of his play once it comes out. He cannot contain it and drinks himself to stupor, passing out on the street.

On the opening night of the movie, in a role in which Riggan’s character is supposed to commit suicide, he shoots himself on stage in the head with a real pistol instead of a fake one. He is rushed to the hospital as the audience give him a standing ovation. It is later revealed that he just messed up his suicide by blowing off his nose. Even his worst critic Dickinson is impressed by his performance.

Birdman really deserves all the awards it won for the year. It is a good movie that teaches true lessons.
