It’s also water-resistant and has a headphone jack, a rarity among premium phones.”LG continues to deliver innovative features that our customers enjoy,” said US Cellular’s Mark Vitale in a release. “The LG G8 ThinQ incorporates multiple forms of biometric security features, touchless controls, along with its industry-leading camera and sound technology that make this device a very strong smartphone in our lineup.”While CNET reviews editor Lynn La says the LG G8 ThinQ is an “objectively great phone,” she found it doesn’t quite measure up to more affordable competitors like the Samsung Galaxy S10E.

Harris County Offers FirstEver Voter Registrar Training In Vietnamese And Chinese

first_img 00:00 /00:47 Share Elizabeth Trovall/Houston Public MediaVietnamese-Americans in Houston learn how to register voters at a Harris County deputy voter registrar training.Harris County is offering volunteer deputy voter registrar training in Vietnamese and Chinese for the first time ever. More than 25 people attended the first training in Vietnamese this week to become certified to register voters in the county.  To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:center_img Listen Those deputy registrars will be able to register voters for the upcoming elections on November 5. “We have a large Vietnamese community and there’s a lot of language barriers. To be able to have it in Vietnamese, really helps a great deal to really understand the importance of voter registration,” said Janette Diep, executive director of the Vietnamese-American non-profit Boat People SOS, which hosted the training.Houston has one of the largest Vietnamese populations in the country, with some 91,000 people. Elizabeth Trovall/Houston Public MediaVolunteer deputy voter registrar training is now offered in Chinese and Vietnamese.Diep said she’s seen how language barriers can get in the way of voter registration. “A lot of times they [Vietnamese-Americans] get the card in English and they’re afraid to fill it out because it might be incorrect and then they don’t submit it. With this, when you have someone to assist you and to also hand it in to the registrar’s office, means this person’s going to be registered and they’re going to get a voter card,” said Diep. The push for training sessions in Vietnamese and Chinese came, in part, from the civic engagement group Houston in Action. “Earlier this year, Houston in Action members, as part of our Take Action Houston report, identified a gap in training opportunities for non-English speaking volunteer deputy voter registrars,” said Frances Valdez in a written statement.“Members of the Empowering Constituencies Initiative helped bring voter registration opportunities to Harris County’s Vietnamese and Chinese speaking communities, communities who have the right to vote, but who have, historically, not had the same access as others,” she said.Community organizer AJ Durani, said the next step is to have registrars start registering voters ahead of the next election. “We will take volunteer deputy voter registrars and identify locations where community members gather and register voters on a regular basis,” said Durani, who is chairman of civic engagement group eMgage. He said he believes this could be the first-ever voter registrar training in Vietnamese in the state.  Xlast_img read more

Searching for the Perfect Website Builder Heres What Matters

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 6 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. December 8, 2016 Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Thanks to an influx of website builder tools on the internet, anyone can build a website without any prior web development or design experience. However, choosing from the tools in front of you may not be that easy. Which features matter most — and is there a right way to choose?Related: Build a Website for Less Than $500Five features you should compareEvery business has its own process of vetting tools and partners, but when it comes to the choice of website builders, the proposition is pretty clear. Examine the following features and you’ll end up finding the right platform for the job.1. Price People like to say things like, “Oh, don’t worry about price. It’ll all work itself out.” But this is bogus advice. You have to consider the price when considering any business tool. If the price doesn’t work within your budget, then there’s no sense even looking at it.Start with price and begin reviewing the cost of various site builders. Some don’t charge an up-front cost but do require monthly service fees after launch. Others charge a large up-front fee but don’t require additional service charges. It’s important that you know what you’re getting into.2. SimplicityYou’re using a website builder because you don’t have web design and development skills. In other words, the goal is to simplify the process. With that in mind, consider how intuitive a platform is when you’re evaluating the options.Many of today’s leading website builders feature drag-and-drop functionality. If you can find a builder with this technology, go for it. You never know when you’ll need to go back and change something later on. Easier is always better.Related: 4 Ways to Build a Profitable Website From Your Own Experience3. Customer supportIssues arise and problems come out of nowhere. How strong is the website builder’s customer support? Can you reach the company via phone, email and live chat? Are these people available 24/7 or only during business hours?Hopefully, you won’t need customer support often, but when it’s necessary, you want it to be easy and available. Thankfully, customer support is a very competitive value-add feature right now, and many website builders are steadily improving these services.4. Client testimonialsWebsite builders can rant and rave about how great they are on their own website and sales pages, but how do you know they aren’t just puffing themselves up to grow their bottom line?This is where client testimonials matter. When you get down to two or three options, visit review websites and start reading testimonials. What do current and past clients like about the builder? Do they live up to their claims? Many do — but you don’t want to take everything at face value.5. SEO featuresSomething as technical as SEO may not be on your mind when you’re selecting a website builder; but don’t ignore this issue. Having a website builder with SEO-friendly web design technologies built in can really give you a head-start over the competition.You’ll want to look at both on-page and off-page features to really understand what exactly it is that different site builders are offering. A look at the top website buildersNow that you know exactly what to look for, you’re ready to start evaluating some of the options in the marketplace. and Weebly are considered the web builder giants, so we’ll start with With, you know exactly what you’re getting: exceptional website building features and responsive support. The service doesn’t charge any up-front fees, but you will have to pay a monthly maintenance fee that includes hosting, advertising and general upkeep.Weebly. Businesses love Weebly because of its thousands of templates and incredibly user-friendly, drag-and-drop format that makes building web pages a total breeze. You pay an up-front fee for the site and then choose which monthly features you want to invest in. Here’s an example of a website using Weebly. Notice how clean and smooth it is. These are characteristics that most people use to describe this site builder.There are other options, of course. If you’re willing to look around, you’ll notice that there are at least half a dozen other practical options worth considering. These include:Wix. You’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn’t like Wix. It’s widely recognized as one of the leading website builders and features great responsive templates and a rather deep app store. Here’s an example of a website designed using Wix. Notice how smooth and responsive the site is, with a variety of content formats and high-resolution elements.eHost. While it doesn’t get discussed as much as some other builders, eHost is a tremendous platform. It has fantastic customer support and gives businesses free domain names with registration.Bigcommerce. Need ecommerce capabilities? While Shopify gets a lot of attention, Bigcommerce is arguably a better solution. It has a nice POS system that really sets it apart. Here’s an example of a site design with BigCommerce. It’s the perfect picture of how this platform allows you to incorporate a bunch of different elements without appearing overcrowded.It all comes down to the features you need and the level of comfort you have with building a website. Definitely consider these five options, but know, too, that there’s a long list of other builders available.Buying a domain nameFinally, it’s important to touch on the topic of buying a domain name. Before you’re able to build a website, you need an address that directs people to your site. While you can buy a domain name from a number of different providers, most website builders and hosts now offer deals when you sign up for one of their services. Some will even give you free domain name registration.But even if you can’t get a domain name for free from your host, there are plenty of names that cost only a dollar or two. Be forewarned that if you want a one-word domain or one somebody else already owns, you may have to spend thousands of dollars. Something to think about.Related Offer: Visit the hassle-free way to register a domain.Take your time.Don’t rush. When looking for a website builder, take your time and look for the features that matter to your business. With a little bit of patience, you’ll eventually find the right solution that’s functional, intuitive and cost-effective.last_img read more
