Crop Kestrel provides complete agriculture management solutions using a combination of survey drones, multispectral sensor and cameras as well as powerful analysis software to interpret the data. Our agriculture packages include everything needed to collect, analyse and incorporate drone data into your crop management practices to ensure the yield can be as efficient and healthy as possible. Areas of the field that require attention can be easily identified and then addressed by the Farmer or Agronomist. This information is collected using the most up to date and specialist multispectral NDVI sensors. When these sensors are combined with our software, Crop Kestrel can really begin to support the farmer to maximise yield, health and quality of their crops as well as having a positive impact on the environment and increasing efficiencies in Crop fertilisers and sprays.

#Business website navigation #madeinengland

Crystal Set - who needs the internet? by This Window

How the visitor to your business website navigates around your pages influences their decision on whether to visit a competitor or purchasing your goods or services from your website. If the site is too difficult to navigate the potential customer might never return again. You need to make your navigation links (text or images) as obvious as possible and it is imperative that there is a degree of continuity of colour and form so that the user can easily get what they want intuitively. These simple steps will help you to achieve your goals.

Information = Power.

Knowledge is derived from experience. New innovations appear for all things Internet – just get noticed and become visible.

Spanish based business trying to attract UK clients #madeinbritain

Reflection - Tias in Lanzarote

There are inherent problems with writing content for websites that are not written in your native tongue – how do you know what to say?

If you have Spanish based business and are trying to attract UK clients contact North Devon Web and ask them to have a look at your site to see if you are getting your message across.

The language you decide to communicate your thoughts and product details in on a web based medium must be of a standard that enables the viewer to understand what you are trying to say. Human language is highly complex and is based on a set of rules where symbols, expression and sound have meaning. Business keywords are simply created by creating an infinite number of possible descriptions from a combination of different expressive elements.

Are you an English speaking web site owner or a Spanish speaking business who require a website written and optimised for UK clients? …

The image above was taken in Lanzarote using a Pentax P30, 35mm film camera, which uses manual focus lenses with the K-mount bayonet fitting. The lens used to take this photograph was a Rikenon 1:2 50mm, which was originally off a Richo KR-10 (super). At about 510 grams, the camera is easy to carry and handle and has shutter speeds from 1/1000 of a second to 1 second. The automatic mode on this film camera chooses the best shutter speed and aperture setting, giving the novice photographer a better chance of taking a good photograph. It also has a semi-automatic mode as well, which chooses most of the settings but allows for more creativity. There is also a totally manual setting for the brave.

The film used was Fujicolor C200, a budget-priced film (expire date April 2014) processed by Jessops in Barnstaple. The negatives were scanned using an Ion Pics 2 SD.

My heroes have grown old with me or they have died – maybe their death has been a way to freeze time, stop the ageing process – not only for them but for me also?

‘Peter’s exhibition was inspired by iconic images he used when he was at art school in the 70s on the theme of Beauty and the Beast – inc Sid and Nancy and Guy the Gorilla! – and I think the results are really bold and impactful.’

I have always been a hoarder, newspaper clippings, postcards etc. It is only now that I have decided to recycle them.

Old #drawing found in box – worth millions? 

Well to be honest this drawing is probably worth nothing but it was a pleasant surprise to rediscover it. I did this drawing around 1981 – I’m not sure why I did it but I’m glad it wasn’t lost.

Drawing: Common tools for making marks include graphite pencils, pen and ink, inked brushes, wax color pencils, crayons, charcoal, chalk, pastels, markers, styluses, and various metals (such as silverpoint). An artist who practices or works in drawing may be called a draughtswoman or draftsman.

It could be argued that photocopying machines and printers can create drawings.

The most common support for drawing is paper, although other materials, such as cardboard, plastic, leather, canvas, and board, may be used. Temporary drawings may be made on a blackboard or whiteboard or indeed almost anything. The medium has been a popular and fundamental means of public expression throughout human history. The relatively easy availability of basic drawing instruments makes drawing more universal than most other media.

A good SEO expert needs to be a Spiritualist Medium

Looking into the future

 I wish I had a crystal ball so I could predict what will be the next trend - will Facebook and Twitter crash and become last year's news? To be successful in marketing your blog, product, website etc. you need to have intuition, to guess successfully and predict the stampede of the herd.

I believe...

Spiritualists believe in communicating with the spirits of discarnate humans. They believe that spirit mediums are humans gifted to do this, often through seances. Anyone may become a medium through study and practice. They believe that spirits are capable of growth and perfection, progressing through higher spheres or planes. The afterlife is not a static place, but one in which spirits evolve. The two beliefs—that contact with spirits is possible, and that spirits may lie on a higher plane—lead to a third belief, that spirits can provide knowledge about moral and ethical issues, as well as about God and the afterlife. Thus many members speak of spirit guides—specific spirits, often contacted, relied upon for worldly and spiritual guidance.

Horoscopes in newspapers are based on star signs and birth dates; these predict the day’s events. These predictions are based on the laws of probability and chance. You could read your daily horoscope and make the prediction into a self-fulfilling prophecy, you could go out and find that ‘Tall dark handsome man’ or go on ‘A long journey’. Alternatively you could read your horoscope late in the evening and interpret the day’s events and adapt them to the mystical words. "Yes I did meet someone important today".

The interesting thing about prediction is that you could meet a tall dark handsome man, go on a long journey and meet someone important and never read your horoscope. Does this mean the day’s events were not predicted? Similarly you can use these basic ideas and apply them to Search Engine Optimization. You can interpret the statistics about your website using all the probabilities used in horoscopes. You could be number one in Googgle searches without doing anything. You could be high ranking and claim it is all due to your expert's SEO techniques. In reality it will probably be a combination of both. Can you, however, afford to leave everything to chance?
