Website helping Berks job-seekers find employment | Berks Regional News

READING, Pa. – Pennsylvanians are getting back to work. The unemployment rate is at its lowest point since the COVID-19 pandemic began. In Berks, about 10% of the county’s workforce is unemployed, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry.

Pennsylvania’s Americana Region, the visitor’s bureau in Berks County, might just have a lead for those looking for work. Just before the pandemic hit, it partnered with the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance to develop a Berks County-focused career board. Seven months later, and the demand is greater than first expected.

“It’s been highly successful to date. We only started it in March,” said Crystal Seitz, the visitor’s bureau’s president. “If you’re living in Berks County and you’ve worked here and you find yourself in that unfortunate position of being unemployed, it’s a way for us to help you find that next position.”

Seitz said about 5,000 people visit the

Bulk Condo Deals Website Launches Due To Pandemic

Richard Swerdlow and Bruce Goldstein 

Richard Swerdlow and Bruce Goldstein

Miami-based Condo.com founder Richard Swerdlow and South Florida developer Bruce Goldstein are partnering to launch an online platform for bulk condo deals, The Real Deal has learned. They’re betting on the growing distress of condo markets across the country and developers’ desire to keep their offers confidential.

Swerdlow and Goldstein are rolling out their nationwide website, BulkCondoDeals.com, so that developers and other sellers can post their bulk deals – defined as more than one condo unit – on the site with detailed financial information. That will include annual cash flow, fixed costs, cap rates, discounts, building information and projected returns.

However, the listings will exclude building names and addresses, so that developers won’t compete with their own existing retail inventory. The venture will act as a broker for the deal, taking commissions ranging from 1 percent to 5 percent, co-founder Swerdlow said.

OPINION: If you have a service business, you already have a website.

But is that website really working for you? Does it attract customers, or does it send them away?

If your website is not generating leads, then it’s not truly working.

Worse, it could be sending potential customers into the arms of your competitors.

8kun, QAnon’s Favorite Website, Lost Its Host but Found a New Russian One

QAnon—an unhinged conspiracy theory falsely accusing President Donald Trump’s foes of Satanic pedophilia and cannibalism—has become so enmeshed in the GOP that at least one Q-loving Republican is expected to win a congressional seat this year.

But in more level-headed industries, the theory is so toxic that few U.S. companies want anything to do with it. That includes an Oregon-based web services company that severed ties with the main QAnon-associated website on Sunday night, temporarily taking the site offline.

8kun, a seedy forum previously known as 8chan, is the current ground zero for QAnon. The site is home to Q, a person or group of people who claim to be a high-level government insider dropping hints about an impending pro-Trump revolution. (The site is also home to white supremacists, including some who have used it to publicize mass-shootings.) The site’s reputation made it anathema to web services companies, with internet

Asus Website Lists Laptop With Intel’s First Dedicated Graphics Card

(Credit: Asus)

Intel’s first dedicated graphics card for consumers will apparently end up in an Asus laptop. 

The VivoBook Flip 14 was recently unveiled on Asus’s website, and according to the features list, the laptop convertible will carry the “First Intel Discrete Graphics” unit inside. 

If you dig into the Asus website code, the PC vendor also names the GPU the “Intel Iris Xe Max graphics,” which caught the attention of Twitter user @momomo_us.

Strangely, Asus hasn’t been talking up the 14-inch laptop on social media or through its public relations channels. Nor has Intel. So we’re not sure why it isn’t getting more fanfare. Asus simply told PCMag the company will release more details in “late Q4” when the product is expected to launch.

Still, the laptop does fit into Intel’s timeline for its dedicated graphics card. In August, the company’s head of graphics, Raja Koduri,

What is a website builder?

A website builder is exactly what it sounds like — an online or an offline app that helps you build a website. Back in the day, building websites involved quite a bit of coding, choosing a web hosting provider and constructing something complex like an e-commerce portal was out of bounds for many. Those days are long gone thanks to website builders, which are perfect for individuals and small businesses to put together a website without hiring the services of a web developer.

Why use a website builder?

Even experienced web developers these days prefer to start out with a website builder. That’s because these web development tools can help build websites in a fraction of the time it requires to hand code one. 

Even if you are well versed in the languages of the web, namely HTML, CSS, JavaScript, using a website builder reduces the chances of making a
