  • Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, the 2012 GOP presidential presidential nominee, called the country to support the incoming administration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
  • President Donald Trump has still refused to acknowledge the results of the election, a day after most major news networks and agencies called the race for Biden.
  • Romney said that Trump “will accept the inevitable” once he has exhausted all legal avenues to contest the election results.

Sen. Mitt Romney on Sunday said that the country should support the incoming administration of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, adding that he hasn’t seen any indication of extensive voter fraud or irregularities, according to CNN.

On CNN’s “State of the Union,” the Utah Republican and 2012 GOP presidential nominee called for unity in the wake of the incredibly contentious presidential election.

“I think we get behind the new president, unless for some reason that’s overturned, we get behind the new president and wish him the very best,” he said.

While virtually ever major news organization has already called the race for Biden, President Donald Trump’s campaign has pushed lawsuits in a range of swing states and the president himself has neither publicly conceded nor reached out to Biden directly.

 

Romney, who was the first sitting Republican senator to congratulate Biden after the race was called, gave a frank response when asked why Trump continues to falsely claim that he won the election.

“You’re not going to change the nature of President Trump in these last days, apparently, of his presidency,” he said. “He is who he is, and he has a relatively relaxed relationship with the truth. He’s going to keep on fighting until the very end. I’m convinced that once all remedies have been exhausted, if those are exhausted in a way that’s not favorable to him, he will accept the inevitable.”

Over the years, Romney and Trump have had a tumultuous relationship, but it reached a breaking point in February when the senator voted to convict the president for abuse of power during his impeachment trial.

Romney had a final warning to those who are wondering how Trump will approach the impending presidential transition.

“Don’t expect him to go quietly into the night,” he said. “That’s not how he operates.”

Laat uw bedrijf nog sneller groeien met machine learning: deel II

Laat uw bedrijf nog sneller groeien met machine learning: deel II

Vorige week hebben we bij de Consumer Electronics Show gekeken naar de moderne consument die over uitgebreide mogelijkheden beschikt. Deze consument is nieuwsgieriger, veeleisender en ongeduldiger dan ooit tevoren en verwacht overal ondersteunende functionaliteit, zoals met hun eigen smartphone kunnen inchecken bij hun eigen hotelkamer.


Het is essentieel dat bedrijven aan deze stijgende consumentenverwachtingen kunnen voldoen. In de komende twee weken bespreken we enkele van onze favoriete AdWords-producten en laten we zien hoe merken dankzij machine learning aan deze verwachtingen kunnen voldoen en tegelijkertijd tijd kunnen besparen en de prestaties kunnen verbeteren.

Machine learning toepassen in AdWords

Onder campagnebeheer vallen allerlei tijdrovende taken. In plaats van handmatig duizenden zoekwoorden toe te voegen of advertentiekoppen te testen om te zien welke het beste werken, kunt u het machine learning-platform van Google trainen om dit voor u te doen.
Misschien heeft u recent nieuwe producten toegevoegd aan uw voorraad of meer content toegevoegd aan uw website. Dynamische zoekadvertenties registreren dit en vullen lege plekken in de zoekwoorddekking automatisch op zodat u mensen kunt bereiken die naar deze nieuwe producten en services zoeken.
Als u relevante advertenties wilt weergeven die overal op de miljoenen sites in het Google Display Netwerk passen, kunt u meer bestanden voor advertentiemateriaal uploaden naar uw Slimme display-campagne en automatisch relevante advertenties weergeven aan de juiste mensen. Dit alles wordt mogelijk gemaakt door machine learning.

Een nieuwe ontwikkeling voor apps

We weten dat de concurrentie groot is voor app-ontwikkelaars en -marketeers: het aantal ontwikkelaars met meer dan een miljoen installaties per maand is met 35% gestegen ten opzichte van het voorgaande jaar.1 Er zijn meer apps en functies dan ooit die om aandacht (en het geld) van uw gebruikers concurreren. Ook op dit vlak kan machine learning u ondersteunen.
Dankzij Universele app-campagnes (UAC) kunnen merken zoals Rappi, een bezorgservice in Latijns-Amerika, hun meest waardevolle gebruikers met één campagne bereiken via Google Play, Google Zoeken, het Display Netwerk en YouTube.
De marketeers van Rappi uploadden alle bestanden voor advertentiemateriaal die ze hadden. Daardoor kon het machine learning-platform van Google elk bestand rouleren, inzicht krijgen in welke bestanden het best presteren in elk kanaal en vervolgens advertenties weergeven die de grootste kans hebben om gebruikers aan te trekken. Al na één maand vertienvoudigden de conversiepercentages van Rappi en kon het merk uitbreiden naar Brazilië, Mexico en Argentinië.
AutoGravity, een aanbieder van autoleningen en -leasing, wist in slechts vijf weken tienduizenden autokopers te bereiken en de gebruikersbetrokkenheid met 120% te verhogen. Het merk is van plan 200% meer te investeren in UAC om meer van hun meest waardevolle gebruikers te bereiken: mensen voor wie de kans groot is dat hun kredietaanvraag wordt goedgekeurd.
Hoe slagen UAC’s erin deze typen waardevolle gebruikers te bereiken? Het machine learning-platform van Google gebruikt insights van Google Zoeken en Google Play, webgegevens en andere signalen in combinatie met informatie over uw app. Deze gegevens worden geanalyseerd in elk kanaal waarin AdWords uw advertenties weergeeft en worden in realtime geüpdatet. Op die manier kan AdWords snel trending zoekwoorden rond actuele gebeurtenissen en feestdagen oppikken en ervoor zorgen dat uw advertenties aan de juiste gebruikers worden weergegeven.
AdWords kijkt vervolgens naar mensen die de door u geselecteerde actie hebben uitgevoerd (zoals goedkeuring voor krediet ontvangen) en mensen die dat niet hebben gedaan, plus gebruikerssignalen die uniek zijn voor elke veiling. Apparaattype, besturingssysteem, netwerk, geïnstalleerde apps en andere signalen vormen samen patronen waarmee waardevolle gebruikers kunnen worden geïdentificeerd. Deze patronen worden gebruikt om toekomstige veilingen te voorspellen en te bepalen waar en hoe moet worden geboden en welke advertenties moeten worden weergegeven (en aan wie).
Merken kunnen met behulp van machine learning niet alleen op grote schaal betere prestaties genereren, maar kunnen ook hun meest waardevolle bedrijfsmiddel vrijmaken: tijd. 
Paul Teresi, Growth Manager bij de reis-app Skyscanner, zegt dat UAC’s hem veel tijd besparen. “Ik kan me nu echt verdiepen in onze gebruikers en statistieken, en kan mogelijkheden voor groei en uitbreiding ontdekken.

Volg onze nieuwe cursus voor meer informatie over hoe u met universele app-campagnes uw meest waardevolle gebruikers kunt bereiken.

Volgende week sluiten we dit onderwerp af met een blik op hoe machine learning wordt toegepast om biedingen te optimaliseren, met onder andere een interessante casestudy van het in-house mediateam van Google.

Shacking up with my parents: Why I decided to move back home after college, and my advice for young adults considering the same

Shacking up with my parents: Why I decided to move back home after college, and my advice for young adults considering the same

Darian Dozier

  • Darian Dozier is an osteopathic medical student who lives in Houston, Texas and runs the blog Melanated and Meducated, a medical school advice and wellness hub.
  • After graduating college in Oklahoma and unexpectedly losing her job, Dozier decided to move back in with her parents while she prepared for grad school.
  • Moving home came with growing pains, she says — from not being able to go out late with friends to having to keep her music down and gatherings to a minimum.
  • Still, moving back home was a great decision: It allowed her to save on rent and expenses and gave her a chance to spend more quality time with her family. 
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

When I graduated college with a BS in psychology, I knew I wanted to go to medical school. I just had to take a couple of years off, work, and then go back to school. For the first year, I did exactly that, while living with a couple of other girls, and had a blast. But then in 2019, my job unexpectedly closed, and we were all laid off. I still had a year before grad school, and my lease was almost up. I talked with my mom about it, and moving back home made the most sense. 

If you have the option to move back home, it can be a wise choice

The thing about being in your early 20s, balancing a job search and trying to continue your education, is that your life is constant chaos. 

If you get a degree in the humanities, like I did, or you want a job where you can help people, then you may not have a plethora of $60,000 jobs lined up either. You’re almost in a state of limbo, waiting for someone to send you that “You’re accepted!” or “You’re hired!” email. That was me, for a whole year. 

To prepare for my acceptance and transition into medical school, the best choice was for me at that time was to move back home. Moving home had plenty of pros: no rent, no lease, free food, constant family time, and in my case, my own “apartment,” i.e. the basement.

I hadn’t lived with my family for about five years, so moving back home came with some growing pains

As great of a tool as the Ring Video Doorbell may be for safety, it is the arch nemesis of young adults coming home from a night out partying. Considering I knew my life would change once I entered med school, I was trying to live my best life until then. That meant wineries with my girls by day, and hitting the bars of Westport in Kansas City by night. 

When I lived by myself, coming home whenever was just something I did. Normally my friends and I went to a bar or party, grabbed some food on the way home, and ate it in our beds until we fell asleep. 

When I moved in with my parents, I was still trying to live my same life, but my parents had different rules. They worried about me when I was out late, and I normally disturbed them if I came back in the early hours of the morning. It took a few conversations here and there for me to develop a new awareness of what time I should make it back home. 

Also, hosting the pregame for a night out was definitely out the window. When I had an apartment in college, it was the designated pre-outing venue to get ready, listen to loud music, and get warmed up for our festivities. Plus, I could wear whatever I wanted to on a night out, because I looked great and you don’t keep a Bentley in the garage (if you catch my drift).  

The opposite couldn’t be more true being an adult kid in my parent’s basement. If my music got too loud, I would quickly get a text saying to turn it down. If my friends came over, they were on their best behavior. I also had to keep in mind “Can I walk out the house looking like this without raised eyebrows?” If the answer was anything other than yes or maybe, I was changing, regardless of how cute my outfit was.

Going from being a young adult with free reign, coming and going as I pleased, to being a “free” young adult having to abide by my parents’ rules took some adjustment. There were some bumps in the road as my family and I got used to each other again. 

Despite the shaky transition, moving home was the best decision I could have made

I truly am blessed to have had the opportunity to move back home. Not everyone has that option, and if they do, they may not have had the luxuries I did. 

I may have complained about not being able to live life the way I was used to to, but my parents made things pretty comfortable for me. I didn’t have to worry about anything, and they gave me a place to figure my life out without worrying about my next meal, or paying bills. 

Plus, nothing beats family time. Not only did I move back in with my family, but I got quarantined with them as well. Talk about too much togetherness. 

We found ways to mix up how we all hung out, from  the Jeopardy games we played, to shows we watched, video games we tried out, and food we enjoyed. We may butt heads because we share a lot of the same qualities, but for the most part, we love being around each other. Even when we’re mad at one another, we still find ways to come back together and smooth things over.

Moving back home with your parents isn’t easy and comes with its fair share of complications

But for me, it wasn’t bad at all. Did I have to make some major adjustments? Sure. But being in school now, and not having that same sense of togetherness, is actually something I miss. I’m very thankful to my mom and dad for their openness and generosity in letting me move back home during this time.

A good majority of my friends live with their parents, and we all have the same complaints. It can be weird and frustrating going from doing your own thing to having to abide by someone else’s rules or ways. But we can all agree on one thing: The fullness from spending time with your loved ones is unmatched. Not only that, but being able to work and save money helps prepare you for when you’re finally ready to move out.

Anything that helps you get a leg up in this expensive, scary adult world is worth it.
