A Look At Climate Change, What It’s Doing, and How To Fight It

Greenhouse gas emissions are destroying our environment, one degree at a time   (Northport, NY) With the phrase “green” in recent years growing far beyond its original designation as merely a color and crossing over into a byword for anything and everything having to do with environmental activism and saving the Earth, global warming – the century-scale rise in the average temperature of the Earth’s climate system and its related, often negative effects – has become a hot button topic in the media. But how serious of an issue is global warming – or climate change as it is also referred to – to the environment and the planet that we all inhabit? Some contend that this phenomenon is a hoax concocted by left-wing activists, but global warming is indeed a very real thing, and it’s something that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later for the sake of our children and our children’s children.   Climate change – blamed mostly on the emission of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere over the years – has, and potentially will, continue to affect people and the environment in a variety of different ways; it can range from minor and potentially beneficial aspects, such as a longer growing season for farm crops, to devastating and destructive aspects, such as an increase in the frequency and strength of violent weather patterns, including hurricanes, tornados, and heat waves.   Global temperatures have been on the rise and are anticipated to continue doing so, according

With Yellow Pages Steady Decline In Overall Traffic for 2016, Is It Still Worth Running Ads on Them?

EAST NORTHPORT, NEW YORK — Back in the old days before the internet became popular, most people had to rely on the yellow pages for their information. They used to check out job ads and other ads in the yellow pages and also look for people or companies’ contact details. Nowadays, the yellow pages are becoming less and less popular since everything can be access through the internet.   Even though it is apparent that the internet has already trumped the yellow pages, there are still a lot of small, traditional businesses that stick to the traditional yellow pages ads and refuse to have a website. Here are a few reasons as to why this is a bad idea and what should be done instead.   The Internet Allows You to Access Information Faster   In the old days, you had to scroll through thousands of pages before you can get a phone number or an address. This was very practical back then but things are very much different today. In 2002, the world already saw a decline in the use of yellow pages since the internet was becoming more accessible. This decline in 2002 all the way to 2010 lead to a drop in the international yellow pages industry from $15 billion to $10 billion in those 9 years.   You Can Get Access to More Features at Your Fingertips   Since the internet allows for more than one function in a website, you get to have a lot Announces Results of Ongoing Four-Year Survey; Online Yellow Pages Continues to Trump Print

NORTHPORT, NEW YORK —, a massive business directory website at the forefront of the environmentally-conscious “Green“ movement, is proud to announce results of its ongoing four-year survey to determine the growing consensus of the public at large as to the choices they make when it comes to accessing telephone directories; are they going with print or online, physical or digital? And, according to a completely impartial and factual survey conducted by YellowPagesGoesGreen (YPGG), the trend established by our 2013 survey continues as the public’s reliance upon outdated print telephone books has diminished even further as the masses embrace the speed and efficiency of online directories such as YPGG to get the information they need to procure the goods and services that they want.   Conducted over the course of one year on YPGG’s home page and participants carefully screened to ensure that only one vote could be tallied per IP address to ensure a fair and impartial outcome, the survey’s results were quite conclusive- out of a total of 2963 votes asking which version of the Yellow Pages do they use the most – paper or online – only 36 percent (1061 votes) of users indicated paper; the remaining 64 percent, making up 1900 votes, overwhelmingly indicated online sources such as YPGG. Compared to our 2013 survey, this represents an increase of four percent in terms of consumers who utilize online phone directories and, likewise, a corresponding four percent drop in paper directory use overall. The obvious conclusion that

New Hiya App Seeks End to Cellular Spam, Scam and Telemarketing

EAST NORTHPORT, NY – It’s becoming the bane of the digital age…you’ll be in the middle of something and you’ll feel a familiar buzz in your pocket. You reach in to retrieve the source of said buzz – your trusty cell phone – expecting a call from a friend or family member, only to find an unfamiliar number greeting you, a number inevitably belonging to a robo-caller, spammer, or outright scam artist looking to separate you from your money. In 2014, 54 percent of all customer complaints made to the Federal Communication Commission were in regards to robocalls, illustrating how prevalent this issue is to the public at large.   It’s bad enough when you get unwanted calls on your landline – especially when they’re from someone attempting to possibly rip you off – but on an allegedly private cell number whose individual minutes you’re paying for? It’s infuriating to be sure, and Whitepages is looking to end this vile practice once and for all with an exciting new app known as “Hiya.”   Whitepages, founded 19 years ago, is best known as the company that compiles public record databases on people and businesses; its former caller ID operations and app – previously known as Whitepages Caller ID – have recently been spun off into a new business model: Hiya Inc. It’s free eponymous app pulls from seeks to help users with address book management by pulling from a national phone number database of 1.5 billion individual users that enable End of 2016 Marks End of Print Phone Book Era

NORTHPORT, NEW YORK – by Yellow Pages Directory Inc., a massive website at the forefront of the environmentally-conscious “Green“ movement, is preparing to enter 2017 by ramping up efforts to convince the American public of the ease and effectiveness of web-based directory solutions and the hazards posed to the environment by outdated print phone book publishers.   An innovator in digital business and telephone listings and an advocate for staunch environmentalism, is a cutting-edge website that delivers over 200 million up-to-the-minute listings of people throughout the United States. Whereas print directories are often out-of-date within months of their publication and use up valuable natural resources in both their creation and disposal, is a fast, convenient, and easy way to access the information you need.’s listings are updated constantly, always ensuring users with the most accurate information all times; meanwhile, print directory users have to wait 365 days before they get any form of an update dropped onto their doorstep, which in turn will be useless for yet another year, and so on. In addition, users not only have the ability to search listings, but to add and maintain their own as well.   An article published on the Blog (now only archived) entitled “Five Reasons You Don’t Need Phone Books” cites statistics such as the fact that 615 million volumes of phonebooks equates to 100 million tons; obviously, a fair percentage of that staggering sum will end up in landfills, as according to
