It is safe to say we all have a few apps installed on our iOS devices that haven't received an update in a very long time. These apps can be problematic, as they slow down your device or clash with the latest version of iOS.

There is no doubt that Google is a multidisciplinary company. It ranges from the internet search engine, with which it started, until the manufacture of smartphones and tablets. A diversification of businesses that, in the end, has a positive impact on its reputation as a company.

Recently it was known that Google was starting to stick its nose in the food business, today we tell you that Google wants to get into the business of job portals and for that, it is preparing to launch Google Hire.
Google Hire, the portal where Google wants you to find employment.

It seems that the US company is in the process of creating a service called Google Hire. This would be a job portal where you can search and offer work. It will facilitate contact between companies and potential workers.

There is still no official confirmation from Google, but this service could see the light soon, since the website has been operational for a long time. Although at present it is impossible to know any details about it with complete accuracy.

This idea of the job portal is not new as we can find similar services as LinkedIn and InfoJobs, which have been operating for some time. This project is part of the company’s business division, led by Diane Green.

Despite this, we have our doubts about Google Hire, since experience tells us that Google does not like copying. When the company borrows ideas from others, it always tries to go a step further to differentiate itself, so it would not be rare to see some Artificial Intelligence implemented in Google Hire.

At the moment, we will wait for more data to know, is there something special about Google Hire or would it be simply an employment portal.

Search and big data analytics have evolved significantly over the last few years, and organizations are increasingly using these technologies to meet their mission-critical needs.

At the beginning of 2016, we were talking a lot about machine learning and semantic search and how they would be key developments in this space. 

Those have certainly been hot topics and continue to be areas that companies are seeking to exploit for their data-driven applications. 

But what will we be talking about in 2017 as it pertains to this space?

Here’s a look at five areas you can expect to hear more of this year and beyond.

Open Source Rises to the Top

Open source technologies are becoming more prominent in a wide range of use cases, from traditional enterprise search to log analytics, e-commerce search, and even government document search.

In fact, current data shows open source search engines have gained significant popularity because of flexibility, cost and features. According to DB-Engines, Elasticsearch and Solr — two open source search engines based on Lucene — top the list of leading commercial and open source search engines.

Just last month I discussed the features and limitations of Elasticsearch and Solr in this article.

With its growing use in the commercial and government space, the move to open source will continue to be a hot topic as organizations seek greater features, costs savings, and more flexibility with their search and big data analytics solutions.

Life Without Google Search Appliance

In early 2016, Google announced its end of support for the Google Search Appliance (by March 2019) as part of its strategic move to a cloud-based platform. Since then, many have begged the question: What now?

In my article last summer, I provided some tips on moving from the GSA and looked at some of the replacement options available at the time.

As we enter 2017, there are still no concrete details from Google about a new cloud-based search solution, so users are forging ahead with seeking out and comparing their existing alternatives.  With the March 2019 deadline getting closer, we’ll be hearing a lot more about the alternatives, and maybe even get word on Google’s cloud-based plans. 

Analytics Powered by Enterprise Data Lakes

Enterprises have a lot of data but how well they use it to derive insights is key to success. Over the last year, we’ve been hearing a lot of hype around enterprise data lakes (or enterprise data hubs) to bring together data silos and make the right data available to the right users at the right time. 

There is a wide variety of structured and unstructured data in enterprise data lakes. That said, search engines are the ideal tool for storing, processing, accessing, and presenting this data because they are schema-free and can scale to billions of records.

Data lakes’ search and analytics capabilities are nearly endless when we combine search engines, big data techniques, and visualization dashboards in groundbreaking use cases such as bioinformatics, precision agriculture, and precision medicine.

As data lakes continue to gain popularity as a way to store massive amounts of data and analytics, we’ll see organizations continuing to have the conversation in 2017 about how to best exploit this.

Search Engines Become 'Insight Engines1'

Just like Google, Cortana and Siri, search is becoming much more than just keyword matching.

We’re now heading into the age of search results personalization. Search engines are becoming personal digital assistants or as Gartner calls it, Insight Engines. This was made possible with big data analytics techniques like machine learning and predictive analytics.

It’s pervading the modern business world in a multitude of use cases from intranet search, to e-commerce search, recruiting, medical research, media and publishing, and many others. Organizations are just beginning to skim the surface on how real-time personalization is significantly enhancing their operations so we expect a lot of talk about how to implement this in the coming year.

Search Engine Scoring

We know that analyzing statistically valid scores helps increase search engine relevancy over time. But, while this method can significantly increase business value and the bottom line, not many organizations have started engine scoring or are implementing it effectively.

With that said, we are observing proven success with newer, better algorithms used in the scoring process, some of which are discussed in this article.  This is, without a doubt, a solid technique that will continue to grow and be discussed in the coming years as organizations seek to improve their user’s search experience.

In conclusion, with the rise of open source, massive volumes of structured and unstructured data, and the need to do complex analytics, we will continue to hear a lot on these topics throughout 2017 as search and big data continue to converge.

In today's world, standing out among a sea of qualified job candidates includes establishing your own personal online brand that speaks directly to potential employers.

According to CareerBuilder's annual social media recruitment survey, 60 percent of employers use social networking sites to research job candidates, and 59 percent of hiring managers use search engines to learn about prospective employees. These numbers are supported by research conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management: Its 2013 study revealed that 77 percent of responding companies use social networking sites to recruit candidates for specific jobs.

The challenge is to create an online presence that is polished while remaining genuine and reflective of who you are as a person and an employee. Given that spring is a season of renewal and rebirth, this may be the perfect time to start anew and upgrade your online image by following a few key tips. 

Upgrade your profiles

Regardless of your career choice, Mark Babbitt, CEO and founder of internships website YouTern, advises that you have profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. From there, make sure your presence on each platform is consistent, productive and positive, he said.

Your profiles should be clear and concise, and include a semi-professional headshot. This allows you to create a cohesive look across all your online platforms. Use your profiles to offer recruiters a glimpse into how you live your commitment to your career.

"Demonstrate your value through social proof of your expertise," said Babbitt. "That may come in the form of a testimonial from a former boss, colleague or customer. Or it could show up in a (picture) of you at your last volunteer effort or at a major industry conference."

Publish content

Writing about what you know allows you to showcase your unique talents, skills and experience while distinguishing your voice and creating "instant credibility," according to Susan Peppercorn, executive career coach and CEO of Positive Workplace Partners. This can include maintaining a blog, writing guest posts for websites, or contributing articles to the online forums of professional or industry organizations.  

"Writing about what you know gives employers insight into your thinking and communication abilities and gives the job seeker an advantage over those who haven't taken the time to put their ideas in writing," said Peppercorn.  

Prospective employers may find your articles on sites where they are published, but they may also stumble across them during a Google search. This offers job seekers another way to get noticed and stand out. If you are not the blogging type, you can become a curator of great content that you then share through social media.

Create a website  

Your personal website is like "your digital calling card," said Matt Sweetwood, U.S. CEO of beBee, a business social networking platform. If available, snag a domain name that includes your full name. You can help hiring managers get a feel for who you are by creating a website that showcases your professional skills and highlights a bit of your personality. The site can include your resume, a visually appealing portfolio, samples of your work or articles you've written, contact details, links to your social media profiles, and even video entries.

When designing your website, don't attempt to be creative just for creativity's sake, suggests Valerie Streif, senior adviser with Mentat, a platform for job seekers.

"If you decide to create a supplemental video about yourself, but have no skills or experience in creating or editing film, it's likely that a video as an addition isn't going to help you much," said Streif.

But if done well, "fearlessly putting your thoughts, voice and face out there is a great way to attract the attention of your next employer," said Babbitt.

Establish a presence on employers' preferred platforms

Make sure you are sharing and creating content on the social networks and websites that employers in your industry prefer.

"Determine where your potential employers are active most often," said Babbitt. "That may be Snapchat, Pinterest or Instagram. It could be YouTube or Reddit. Whatever sandbox your target employers play in most often, you play there too."

For example, if you are interested in a job with a graphic design company based in San Francisco, author and life coach Danny Zoucha suggests grabbing the employer's attention by posting links to the latest trends in graphic design on your Twitter account, sharing images of you designing on Instagram, and posting photos of archetypical San Francisco imagery for good measure. 

"If your social media is a reflection of your life, then it should reflect the type of business (you want to join)," said Zoucha. "Show potential employers that you're passionate about the things that make their companies go."  

Build a network of references and recommendations

Growing your list of connections on LinkedIn allows prospective employers to identify people within your network circle whom they know and trust to validate your qualifications.

The most straightforward way to get recommendations is to give them to others.

"Like, comment (on) and share other people's content," said Tomas Ondrejka, co-founder of the job search app Kickresume. "The more people you engage with, the more connections you get, and your online presence will grow."

You can also make yourself visible to industry leaders by joining LinkedIn and Facebook groups, professional social media sites or industry-specific groups, participating in discussions, reading and posting articles, and celebrating the accomplishments of others. Babbitt recommends researching the top five blogs in your industry and following them consistently.

Always take the high road

Let's say you share a friend's slightly inappropriate Facebook memes, or write a scathing review on Yelp. For some hiring managers and recruiters, these seemingly innocuous acts are enough to raise a red flag and disqualify you from a position. Babbitt recommends avoiding any activity that might be perceived as "insensitive, polarizing or overtly sexual in nature," as well as not commenting on or sharing posts that might be considered inflammatory or inappropriate. 

"Think of all people on social media in your industry who get followers for the 'right' reasons, and see what they are doing and posting," said Diana Joya, a human resources professional with 20 years of experience. "Be yourself, but be professional, kind and respectful, always."

Our Telegraph video series, How It Works, breaks down the basics of everyday technology, revealing how the products we use on a daily basis actually work.

The video above reveals how WiFi internet connectivity works, connecting to a computer by converting electronic data into digital signals via an internet router.

The basis of wireless internet technology is much like a traditional radio transmission, where an electronic current is passed from one antenna to another via an electro magnetic wave. However, WiFi uses a digital signal with a much more complex pattern of modulation to transmit the data in binary code.

This is the final episode in our How It Works series. Previous episodes have focused on how GPS connectivity works, the science behind how a battery works and exactly how a touchscreen works.

Since most of us spend a great deal of our lives working, it is inevitable that work plays a key role in shaping our levels of happiness. In a recent chapter of the World Happiness Report — published annually to coincide with the United Nation’s International Day of Happiness — we look more closely at the relationship between work and happiness. We draw largely upon the Gallup World Poll, which has been surveying people in over 150 countries around the world since 2006. These efforts allow us to analyze data from hundreds of thousands of individuals across the globe and investigate the ways in which elements of people’s working lives drive their wellbeing.

Subjective wellbeing – often loosely referred to as happiness – can be measured along multiple dimensions. We look primarily at how people evaluate the quality of their lives overall, something Gallup measures according to the Cantril Ladder, an 11-point scale where the top step is your best possible life and the bottom step is your worst possible life. Gallup then asks respondents to indicate which step they’re currently on. We look at this rating, and also investigate the extent to which people experience positive and negative affective states like enjoyment, stress, and worry in their day-to-day lives, as well as analyzing responses to more workplace-specific measures such as job satisfaction and employee engagement.

Which jobs are happiest?

Eleven broad job types are recorded in the Gallup World Poll. The available categories cover many kinds of jobs, including being a business owner, office worker, or manager, and working in farming, construction, mining, or transport. Which groups of workers are generally happier?


The first thing we notice is that people working blue-collar jobs report lower levels of overall happiness in every region around the world. This is the case across a variety of labor-intensive industries like construction, mining, manufacturing, transport, farming, fishing, and forestry. People around the world who categorize themselves as a manager, an executive, an official, or a professional worker evaluate the quality of their lives at a little over 6 out of 10, whereas people working in farming, fishing, or forestry evaluate their lives around 4.5 out of 10 on average.

This picture is not only found for overall life evaluation but also for the specific, day-to-day emotional experiences of workers. White-collar workers generally report experiencing more positive emotional states such as smiling, laughing, enjoyment, and fewer negative ones like feelings of worry, stress, sadness, and anger.

These descriptive statistics represent the raw differences in happiness across job types.  Of course, there are likely to be many things that differ across people working in these diverse fields that could potentially be driving these happiness differentials. Perhaps surprisingly, much of the picture remains similar even once we adjust our estimates to take into account differences in income and education as well as a number of other demographic variables like age, gender, and marital status.


Self-employment is complicated

Being self-employed has a multifaceted relationship with wellbeing. When we look at global averages, we see that self-employment is generally associated with lower levels of happiness as compared to being a full-time employee. But follow-up analyses indicate that this very much depends on the region of the world that is being considered as well as which measure of subjective wellbeing is under consideration.

In most developed nations, we find that being self-employed is associated both with higher overall life evaluation and with more negative, daily emotions such as stress and worry. It will most likely come as no surprise to anyone who owns a business that being self-employed can be both rewarding and stressful!

Being unemployed is miserable

One of the most robust findings in the economics of happiness is that unemployment is destructive to people’s wellbeing.  We find this is true around the world. The employed evaluate the quality of their lives much more highly on average as compared to the unemployed. Individuals who are unemployed also report around 30 percent more negative emotional experiences in their day-to-day lives.

The importance of having a job extends far beyond the salary attached to it. A large stream of research has shown that the non-monetary aspects of employment are also key drivers of people’s wellbeing. Social status, social relations, daily structure, and goals all exert a strong influence on people’s happiness.

Not only are the unemployed generally unhappier than those in work, we find in our analyses that people generally do not adapt over time to becoming unemployed.  More than this, spells of unemployment also seem to have a scarring effect on people’s wellbeing, even after they have regained employment.

The experience of joblessness can be devastating to the individual in question, but it also affects those around them. Family and friends of the unemployed are typically affected, of course, but the spillover effects go even further. High levels of unemployment typically heighten people’s sense of job insecurity, and negatively affect the happiness even of those who are still in employment.

Job satisfaction around the world

So far, we have discussed how people evaluate and experience their lives as a whole. But what about more specific workplace wellbeing measures, like job satisfaction?

The Gallup World Poll asks respondents a yes/no question as to whether they are satisfied with their jobs. The percentage of respondents who reported to be “satisfied” (as opposed to “dissatisfied”) were higher in countries across North and South America, Europe, and Australia and New Zealand. Specifically, Austria takes the top spot with 95% of respondents reporting being satisfied with their jobs. Austria is followed closely by Norway and Iceland.  We see a moderate correlation (0.28, where a perfect correlation would be 1.0) between job satisfaction responses and life evaluation for individuals in the Gallup World Poll.

To find out why some societies appear to generate greater job satisfaction than others, we turned to the more fine-grained data from the European Social Survey. This can give us more information on job quality by revealing particular workplace characteristics that relate to employee happiness. As might be expected, we find that people in well-paying jobs are happier and more satisfied with their lives and their jobs, but a number of other aspects of people’s jobs are also strongly predictive of varied measures of happiness.

Work-life balance emerges as a particularly strong predictor of people’s happiness. Other factors include job variety and the need to learn new things, as well the level of individual autonomy enjoyed by the employee. Moreover, job security and social capital (as measured through the support one receives from fellow workers) are also positively correlated with happiness, while jobs that involve risks to health and safety are generally associated with lower levels of wellbeing. We suspect that countries that rank high in terms of job satisfaction provide better quality jobs by catering to these non-pecuniary job characteristics.

High degrees of job satisfaction can hide low levels of engagement

The Gallup World Poll asks whether individuals feel “actively engaged,” “not engaged,” or “actively disengaged” in their jobs. In contrast to the relatively high job satisfaction numbers, these data paint a much bleaker picture. The number of people noting that they are actively engaged is typically less than 20%, while being around 10% in Western Europe, and much less still in East Asia.


The difference in the global results between job satisfaction and employee engagement may partially be attributable to measurement issues. But it also has to do with the fact that both concepts measure different aspects of happiness at work. Job satisfaction can perhaps be reduced to feeling content with one’s job, but the notion of (active) employee engagement requires individuals to be positively absorbed by their work and fully committed to advancing the organization’s interests.  Increased employee engagement thus represents a more difficult hurdle to clear.

Although we’ve focused here on the role of work and employment in shaping people’s happiness, it is worth noting that the relationship between happiness and employment is a complex and dynamic interaction that runs in both directions. Indeed, an increasing body of research shows that work and employment are not only drivers of people’s happiness, but that happiness can itself help to shape job market outcomesproductivity, and even firm performance. Being happy at work thus isn’t just a personal matter; it’s also an economic one.

As the leading search engine on the web—and as a major technology company, in general—Google is now adding a special fact-checking tag that improves search results across the globe. This, of course, is the latest initiative to help reduce the spread of “fake news” (misinformation), the company explains.

These new tags will be available in all languages so that all users, worldwide, can use third-party fact-checkers to let others know if the news they have read, submitted, contributed, or found is true or false (or maybe even a mix of both).
In a blog post, Google said, “For the first time, when you conduct a search on Google that returns an authoritative result containing fact checks for one or more public claims, you will see that information clearly on the search results page.”

The blog post continues, “The snippet will display information on the claim, who made the claim, and the fact check of that particular claim.”

Now, this new information will not necessarily be available for all content on the web, not present in every search result, but the attempt is quite a noble one. There may also be conflicting conclusions in some cases, Google advises. After, all, Google is not performing the fact checks themselves.

Still, the company commands, “Even though differing conclusions may be presented, we think it’s still helpful for people to understand the degree of consensus around a particular claim and have clear information on which sources agree.”

To make this happen, Google has collaborated with 115 fact-checking entities all over the world; and the announcement came only one day after Facebook added new tools to its news feed feature that would help users discern whether the shared stories on their timelines were true or false (or, perhaps more accurately, to what degree).

It is no surprise that “fake new” has become quite the serious issue, particularly when you look at stories covering last year’s presidential election race; a time when very clearly fraudulent stories circumnavigated the globe via social media.

Glenn Kessler writes “The Fact Checker” column for the Washington Post and he said, in an email, that Google’s efforts should, at the very least, “make it easier for people around the world to obtain information that counters the spin by politicians and political advocacy groups, as well as purveyors of ‘fake news.’”

SELCO (Southeastern Libraries Cooperating) has announced that patrons can now view catalog records via basic browser searches.

Patrons using popular search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo, can find library item records in search engine results when they search for a title and include “SELCO” or library name.

This new tool makes library items more readily accessible to patrons in their homes or on mobile devices and to those who are not active users of SELCO libraries.

Previously library catalog records could not be found on search engines because library records, known as MARC records, cannot be read by search engine crawlers. BLUEcloud Visibility is a tool created by our library software provider, SirsiDynix. This tool transforms detailed library MARC records information into a new type of library record that is compatible with search engines.

If you search for a title plus SELCO, you might find that your library results are not at the top of the search engine results returned.

Library records are late in coming to the web, so it will take time for SELCO records to make their way through the ranks and land at the top of your results list. Search engines like Google prefer reliable sources like libraries and sites that people visit more often, and over time we can expect to climb up the list.

Eventually the engines will be able to deliver library catalog records without requiring that “SELCO” be included in the search. Patrons will be able to simply search for a title and a search engine will pair a searcher’s geo-location with result data, to deliver the same catalog results.

You can help SELCO improve search engine relevance by searching for us. Search for titles and follow the links to find and request your items. As more people show SELCO resources to be popular and useful, search engines will respond by giving our results preference.

When you go online to search for something you either go to search engines such as Google or Bing. You probably think that if it doesn’t show up on these search engines, then it doesn’t exist, wrong! Believe it or not, there are things on the web that will never show up on your tradition search engine, no matter how hard you may try.

Why? Well, because a password is needed or the site belongs to a private network of organizations. I’m sorry to disappoint you if you thought that Google and Bing were the powerful search engines that have it all. If those tech giants had everything, neither the deep web search engines nor the hidden web would have existed.

Google and Bing follow one hyperlink after another and as a result doesn’t get everything you would want in the results. To be able to find the hidden things of the web, you have to dig a little deeper than usual, but I will show you how to do that and where to look. Hopefully, you can find what you need in the following deep web search engines.

What is the Hidden Web?

When you hear or read about the hidden or deep web, it’s anything behind a paywall, something with a password, or dynamically generated content on the fly and didn’t have a permanent URL. These are the things you are not going to find with a traditional Google search. So, where can you look? Thankfully, there are deep web search engines available on the web.

It might seem counterintuitive, but Google—the kingpin of Internet search engines—is adding a new search service to its cloud platform.

The company is working with Elastic to add a new managed search and related analytics services to the Google Cloud Platform, the business that rents out computing, storage, and networking power to corporate customers.

The services being added include Elasticsearch search and Kibana data visualization tools. Elastic's technology is open source, meaning that the software code is freely available for anyone to download, examine, and use. Elastic makes money selling a supported version of that software with additional commercial features.

Google launched Google Cloud Search in February to handle content created and stored in its G Suite desktop applications to meet the need for document search for business users. Elasticsearch, however, opens up a broader set of applications for corporate IT professionals.

"My biggest beef, historically, is that search has been devalued to mean just enterprise search, like the technologies offered by Endeca, Fast, and others," Shay Banon, co-founder and chief technology officer for Elastic, tells Fortune. (Endeca and Fast Search & Transfer were two search companies acquired years ago by Oracle (ORCL, -0.70%)and Microsoft (MSFT, +0.26%), respectively.)

He argues that there is much more to search than finding documents. Many customers use Elasticsearch to examine computer logs—the esoteric files that are generated any time a computing action takes place—to find out quickly what's happening in their IT infrastructures. Or they use it to examine the logs from their Web servers to see how people are using their Internet sites. In those cases, Elastic competes with companies like Splunk (SPLK, -0.25%) more than it would with something like the Google.com search engine that consumers use or Google Cloud Search.
