Unpardonable Sin Exposition

The following is a exposition on the unpardonable sin. It was more of a detailed email with the staff at Bibleinfo on the meaning of unforgivable sin. This was from a while back and not at all out of the blue but from my own familiarity with the concepts of Christianity. What follows is a raw email exchange and not a annotated or work prepared for any presentation, though that is where it is going.

The 3 Best Hybrid Laptops of 2016

Looking at the market, so after researching some indepth reviews, I categorized what I believe to be some of the best hybrids on the market as of Oct, 2016.

The three best hybrid laptop/tablets are

  1. HP Spectre x360
  2. Samsung ATIV Book 9 Spin
  3. Lenovo Yoga 900

When you go for a laptop for this category, you’ll want to take a look at a comfortable screen size, and less heat so you won’t burn your hands while holding it. The 13inch is probably most relevant and appropriate in display size. The Spectre is said to have the best build and design, while heat issues, and sturdy has stood out as common issues (for tablet mode). The Samsung Spin has been said to be a great contender, but graphics card seems to be a limiting factor. Yoga 900 while it may not have a attractive build, it certainly has a well known brand with great build form factor and size perfect for tablet mode.

The biggest things to watch out in this market is Optane-equipped laptops (faster than SSDs) with Kaby Lake (the new processor with a margin of minor performance gain). These are expected to hit the market in 2017.

WordStream Keyword Tool Scam

WordStream‘s Free Keyword Tool, unlike other keyword suggestion tools, does not return a virtually unlimited number of keywords, including multi-word long-tail keywords, and is definitly not easy to find long-tail keywords with this free keyword research tool. Why? Because I tried it.

I used the tool here: http://www.wordstream.com/keywords

Entered my email after searching the term “places to visit austin”.

All I got in the email was an auto-generated .csv file for excel with no result, just absolute auto-generated premade text as shown in the screenshot. It does not even make any sense, some empty fields and I gave my email away.

If this is a preview of what is more to come, just stay far from them. Just harvesting another email address for their seo and business.
