  1. Have you ever scrolled through YouTube Shorts and wondered how some videos get millions of views? Meet Jenny Hoyos, a young YouTuber who has figured out the secret recipe for viral success! She gets an average of 10 million views per video, that's like everyone in New York City watching her videos! 🤯 Want to know how she does it? Let's dive into her awesome tips and tricks! Turning Ordinary into Extraordinary ✨ Jenny believes that any topic, even something as boring as watching paint dry, can be super interesting if you tell a good story and add a little twist. It's like adding sprinkles and a cherry on top of your ice cream! 🍦 She also makes sure her viewers feel connected to her by sharing personal stories. For example, she made a video about cooking for strangers to raise money to fix her broken kitchen. It's funny because she had to cook to fix the place where she cooks! 😄 What Makes a Great Short? 🤔 There's no one-size-fits-all answer, but Jenny has some ideas: Strong Hook: The first image is like the cover of a book, it needs to be eye-catching and make you want to know more. Jenny even draws pictures of her hooks like thumbnails! 🖼️ Keep it Simple: Imagine explaining your video to a younger sibling. If they understand it, you're on the right track! Jenny uses special tools to make sure her writing is easy to read. Rewatch Value: A great Short is like your favorite song, you want to watch it again and again! This happens when the story is engaging and has surprises. 🎁 Jenny's Secret Weapon: Data 📊 Jenny doesn't just guess what works, she uses data to understand what people like. She studied thousands of successful Shorts, like those by MrBeast and Ryan Trahan, to see what makes them so popular. This helps her make her videos even better! One thing she learned is that keeping people watching is super important. She found that even cutting out one second can make a big difference! She also discovered that 34 seconds is the perfect length for her videos. Remember, the best length for your videos might be different depending on what you're making. Building a Viral Video 🏗️ Jenny follows a special recipe for her Shorts: Hook: Grab attention with a cool first image. Foreshadowing: Give a little hint about what's going to happen next. Smooth Transition: Move from the hook and foreshadowing to the main story without losing the viewer's interest. But & Therefore Storytelling: Add twists and turns to keep the story exciting. Payoff and Ending: Deliver on the expectations you set and end the video with a bang! 💥 From Idea to Action 💡🎬 Jenny has a huge collection of ideas, like a treasure chest overflowing with possibilities! 💎 She gets inspiration from her life, things she sees, and even AI 🤖. Once she picks an idea, she asks herself two questions: "Do I want to make this?" and "Will it go viral?" If the answer to both is yes, she starts working on the hook, the last line, and a rough plan for the video. Then it's time to film and edit! Know Your Audience 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Jenny makes videos with her younger self and her nieces in mind. This helps her focus and make sure her content resonates with her target audience 🎯 Different Platforms, Different Strategies 🗺️ YouTube Shorts, TikTok, and Instagram Reels are all unique, so Jenny adjusts her approach for each platform. YouTube likes longer videos with good stories, TikTok prefers short and fast-paced content, and Instagram benefits from strong visuals and subtitles. Unverified Theories 🧪 Jenny thinks that sharing and viewer satisfaction are also important for going viral, but she needs more data to be sure. Jenny's journey shows us that with careful planning, understanding your audience, and great storytelling, anyone can become a YouTube Shorts superstar! So grab your camera, get creative, and start making awesome videos! 🎉 Meet the YouTuber Who Solved Shorts (Jenny Hoyos Interview by Jay Clouse)

  6. For entry into the Philippines, you need: A visa if your country does not have a visa-free arrangement with the Philippines. This can be obtained at the Philippine consulate or embassy in your country. A passport valid for at least 6 months from the date of entry. A QR code from the eTravel electronic pass at https://etravel.gov.ph/ Important: You can fill out the form no earlier than 5 days before your flight, but you can also do it later, even an hour before departure; it only takes a couple of minutes. Just in case, don't leave it until the last minute and take a screenshot of your QR code, as it will be required at the airport for boarding. Children of any age also must have QR code. Your eTravel QR code can be checked at the check-in counter, and without it, they may refuse boarding. You can refill the form and get a new code if something goes wrong.
  7. Ситуация с получением вида на жительство (ВНЖ) в Грузии за последний год по информации от "помогаек": В последние годы Грузия стала популярным направлением для иммиграции из России и Беларуси. Однако в связи с большим потоком заявителей, процент отказов в выдаче ВНЖ остается довольно высоким и составляет около 35%.

Квалифицированные специалисты по программе трудоустройства в местных компаниях. Индивидуальные предприниматели со стабильным годовым оборотом от 50 тыс. лари и имеющие более 18 тыс долларов на банковском счету.

Срок фактического пребывания в Грузии, желательно более 90 дней. По статистике за последний год, процент положительных решений по различным категориям составляет: Рабочее ВНЖ - 40% Инвестиционное и по недвижимости - 80% Воссоединение семей - 72% Учёба - 42%
  8. Here is a super simple JavaScript code you could use on all websites which are using Cloudflare CDN. It allows you to quickly retrieve some connection data, such as IP, location, CF server, whether or not the user uses WARP VPN, etc. async function getCloudflareTraceJSON() { try { const response = await fetch(`https://${location.hostname}/cdn-cgi/trace`); const traceData = await response.text(); const traceEntries = traceData.trim().split('\n').map(e => e.split('=')); return Object.fromEntries(traceEntries); } catch (error) { console.error(error); return null; } } getCloudflareTraceJSON().then(console.log); Usage example: getCloudflareTraceJSON().then( traceData => { if (traceData.loc === 'US') { console.log('Location: USA'); } else { console.log('Location: Not USA'); } } );

  11. The Alien Certificate of Registration Identity Card (ACR I-Card) in the Philippines is a crucial document for foreign nationals staying in the country for more than 59 days. This card, about the size of a credit card or a driver's license, contains important information such as the holder's picture, full name, home country, place and date of birth, and biometric data stored in an embedded microchip. Foreign nationals who need to renew their ACR I-Card include those with expired cards, individuals who have turned 14, those whose visa status has changed, or in situations where a replacement is required under the Alien Registration Act of 1950. The renewal process involves submitting an ACR I-Card Application Form, a photocopy of the passport bio-page, visa implementation page, and latest admission with valid authorized stay, along with other documents depending on the type of visa held. Additional requirements may apply for specific visa categories such as immigrant visas, student visas, or Philippine-born permanent residents. In case of a lost, damaged, or amended ACR I-Card, a reissuance process is available, which also requires an application form and relevant documents depending on the specific situation, such as a police report for lost cards or proof of amendments. The steps to renew or reissue the ACR I-Card include gathering the necessary documents, submitting them at the nearest Bureau of Immigration (BI) office, and paying the required fees. The general application fees include a $50 I-Card fee and a ₱500 express fee. The processing of the digitized card with electronic security features may take a couple of weeks, and the BI will notify the applicant via text message when the ACR I-Card is ready to be claimed. Furthermore, the Bureau of Immigration requires foreign nationals to file an Annual Report (AR) to track their stay and immigration status changes in the Philippines. This report must be completed by March 1, 2024, to avoid delays or fines. Exemptions from the personal appearance requirement for the AR include individuals below 14 or over 60 years of age, those who are mentally or physically incapacitated, pregnant women, and unwell foreign nationals with a medical certificate.
