Website

A website is a collection of web pages and related content, identified by a common domain name and published on at least one web server. Notable examples are wikipedia.org, google.com, amazon.com. All publicly accessible websites collectively constitute the World Wide Web. There are private websites that can only be accessed on a private network, such as a company's internal website for its employees. Websites are dedicated to a particular topic or purpose, such as news, commerce, entertainment, or social networking. Hyperlinking between web pages guides the navigation of the site, which starts with a home page. Users can access websites on a range of devices, including desktops, laptops and smartphones; the software application used on these devices is called a web browser. The World Wide Web was created in 1990 by the British CERN physicist Tim Berners-Lee. On 30 April 1993, CERN announced. Before the introduction of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol, other protocols such as File Transfer Protocol and the gopher protocol were used to retrieve individual files from a server.

These protocols offer a simple directory structure which the user navigates and where they choose files to download. Documents were most presented as plain text files without formatting, or were encoded in word processor formats. Websites can be used in various fashions: a personal website, a corporate website for a company, a government website, an organization website, etc. Websites can be the work of an individual, a business or other organization, are dedicated to a particular topic or purpose. Any website can contain a hyperlink to any other website, so the distinction between individual sites, as perceived by the user, can be blurred; some websites require user subscription to access content. Examples of subscription websites include many business sites, news websites, academic journal websites, gaming websites, file-sharing websites, message boards, web-based email, social networking websites, websites providing real-time stock market data, as well as sites providing various other services.

While "web site" was the original spelling, this variant has become used, "website" has become the standard spelling. All major style guides, such as The Chicago Manual of Style and the AP Stylebook, have reflected this change. A static website is one that has web pages stored on the server in the format, sent to a client web browser, it is coded in Hypertext Markup Language. Images are used to effect the desired appearance and as part of the main content. Audio or video might be considered "static" content if it plays automatically or is non-interactive; this type of website displays the same information to all visitors. Similar to handing out a printed brochure to customers or clients, a static website will provide consistent, standard information for an extended period of time. Although the website owner may make updates periodically, it is a manual process to edit the text and other content and may require basic website design skills and software. Simple forms or marketing examples of websites, such as classic website, a five-page website or a brochure website are static websites, because they present pre-defined, static information to the user.

This may include information about a company and its products and services through text, animations, audio/video, navigation menus. Static websites may still use server side includes as an editing convenience, such as sharing a common menu bar across many pages; as the site's behaviour to the reader is still static, this is not considered a dynamic site. A dynamic website is one that changes or customizes itself and automatically. Server-side dynamic pages are generated "on the fly" by computer code that produces the HTML. There are a wide range of software systems, such as CGI, Java Servlets and Java Server Pages, Active Server Pages and ColdFusion that are available to generate dynamic web systems and dynamic sites. Various web application frameworks and web template systems are available for general-use programming languages like Perl, PHP, Python and Ruby to make it faster and easier to create complex dynamic websites. A site can display the current state of a dialogue between users, monitor a changing situation, or provide information in some way personalized to the requirements of the individual user.

For example, when the front page of a news site is requested, the code running on the web server might combine stored HTML fragments with news stories retrieved from a database or another website via RSS to produce a page that includes the latest information. Dynamic sites can be interactive by using HTML forms and reading back browser cookies, or by creating a series of pages that reflect the previous history of clicks. Another example of dynamic content is when a retail website with a database of media products allows a user to input a search request, e.g. for the keyword Beatles. In response, the content of the web page will spontaneously change the way it looked before, will display a list of Beatles products like CDs, DVDs and books. Dynamic HTML uses JavaScript code to instruct the web browser how to interactively modify the page contents. One way to simulate a certain type of dynamic website while avoiding the performance loss of initiating the dynamic engine on a per-user or per-connection

Serbia in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015

Serbia participated in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Sofia, Bulgaria. On 20 August 2015, their participation in the 2015 contest was confirmed. Lena Stamenković was selected to represent Serbia with the song "Lenina pesma". Serbia finished 7th with 79 points during the final. On 21 September 2015, it was revealed that Lena Stamenković would represent Serbia with the song "Lenina pesma", she was selected internally by the Serbian broadcaster RTS. Lena Stamenković was born on June 1, 2004 in the city of Zaječar, not far from Serbia’s border with Bulgaria. “Lenina pesma”, which means “Lena’s Song”, is a song by Serbian child singer Lena Stamenković and it will represent Serbia in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Bulgaria. It was written by Lena alongside Leontina Vukomanović, who co-wrote “Beauty Never Lies” for Serbia’s 2015 Eurovision representative, Bojana Stamenov, as well as “Lane moje” for Željko Joksimović; the arrangement was coordinated by Dušan Alagić. At the running order draw which took place on 15 November 2015, Serbia were drawn to open the show on 21 November 2015, preceding Georgia.

The song begins with Lena staring intensely down the camera as she describes the world we live in, with spotlights on her as the stage lights up in red and blue. A red puff of some from the back wall brings in the chorus, as the song draws its close the back lights change to warmer red and yellow colours. Lena performed the song with light fog around her on the floor of the stage, a wind machine adding to the drama as the fog moved around the performance area. At the end of the voting, Serbia placed 7th with 79 points; the voting during the final consisted of 50 percent public televoting and 50 percent from a jury deliberation. The jury consisted of five music industry professionals who were citizens of the country they represent, with their names published before the contest to ensure transparency; this jury was asked to judge each contestant based on: vocal capacity. In addition, no member of a national jury could be related in any way to any of the competing acts in such a way that they cannot vote impartially and independently.
