If there’s any player in the NBA more universally loved more than Steph Curry right now, then please bring him to our attention. Curry, it seems, can do no wrong. He’s got the game, the innocent look, the cute kid, the gorgeous wife, and a pair of all-star parents, as well. In fact, it’s those parents who have gotten him to where he is today.

Giving Credit to Steph’s Parents

Steph Curry had an upbringing that most NBA players would have loved. Thanks to his father, NBA-star Dell Curry, Steph was given the chance to grow up in the shadows of NBA arenas, bright lights, and stardom. But, instead of learning all of the wrong things about what life as an NBA player can look like, Steph learned all of the right things.

For years, Steph watched and followed his father over the course of more than two decades in the NBA – spending time in Charlotte, Milwaukee, and Toronto. And as a result of seeing how his father interacted with fans – particularly kids – Steph has tried to take a similar approach.

Data loss is a significant and costly issue for businesses and individuals alike. According to a study conducted by Pepperdine University in 2003, the last year for which comprehensive statistics on data loss are available, there were over 76 million computers in use, and data loss cost businesses over $18 billion dollars a year. Today, it has been estimated that the number of computers in use has rapidly grown to over 2 billion worldwide, so the cost of data loss to businesses has likely increased to staggering proportions.

Data loss is not only expensive for businesses, data loss is often equally devastating to individual users as well. Whether the data loss is caused by malware and other viruses, or even actual hard drive failure, folks that suffer a data loss can end up losing access to important images such as family photographs, as well as other files that contain links to important documents and other information that support their ability to work and live.

Google is the world’s largest and most popular search engine. In fact, it is now a central hub for online marketing, social media, mobile advertising and other essential SEO tools. With its domination across several platforms and verticals, Google has reshaped the way businesses communicate with customers. This is particularly true when a business is marketing their products and services, which is vital to brand awareness and credibility. 

With this in mind, Google’s recent algorithm updates demand the following from all businesses:

  • High quality, industry specific, relevant website and blog content for readers and visitors.
  • All blogs and websites must be optimized for mobile viewing. This enables pages to be accessible via wireless, remote and digital devices.

Social Media Impact

While algorithm changes have helped businesses secure higher page rankings and visibility, there are drawbacks when it comes to social media.

Many experts believe it does and they are recommending ways to help users control the content they see each day.
