Sorry Google!

Recommended Posts

Just too much shifty stuff and censorship going on these days at g€€gle. I'm changing my default search engine to https://duckduckgo.com/

I'm sick of doing a search on some product them being bombarded with junk ads for months afterwards, and if you are daft enough to use gmail it's obvious they are scanning everything to see what you had for breakfast!

One which promises to respect your privacy, and (after a little bit of testing) seems to have little or no bias!

Search engines are an interesting phenomenon. The problem with those that promise keep things private is that they are not quite telling the truth. I'm sure you're aware that there is no such thing as true privacy on the internet these days, even if you use a VPN. The second problem is that businesses are quite happy for information to be harvested, analysed and shared by Google; smaller search engines who do not offer this advantage - and it is an advantage commercially as it helps target the right sort of customer - are of no interest to those with products and services to sell. Bear in mind that 95% of online transactions begin with a search engine, and 95% of those are Google searches. The future is, I'm afraid, Google-led.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
