Good ROI

I have three younger people in my personal circle who wish like hell they ONLY owed $20k

These people owe nearly $200K each for advanced degrees or law school.

How on Earth EVER will they pay down these debts in their lifetimes and still keep a roof over their heads and food on the table?

Why go to med school if you're so indebted from it that you have to live in a 4-room apartment and buy used clothing your whole life even though your earnings place you in the top 5% of the population?

Because in a few years 200K will be like 200$ and the salary will be 100 times the actual one.
Nice return of investment...
The only question is: will they still have a job?

Where has all the money gone? Sag mir, wo die Kohle ist, wo ist sie geblieben ?

The money is the aggregate sum of all of the savings of all people worldwide: now consider this, most people in the world are heavy savers, they save much more than Americans and somewhat more than Europeans, the money is saved because most people worldwide are much "poorer" than Americans and feel "insecure", so they save knowing that they are a hickup away from starving, from layoffs, from large expenses for health care, for their future pensions if they reach the age, etc.

Now those countries also have large populations, like India, Indonesia, Brazil, Russia, Eastern Europe, India, JAPAN, South Korea, etc.

So that aggregate amount of money ends up being somewhere around 80 trillion dollars. Now the banks, all of them worldwide just add this cash all together, slice and dice it amongst themselves, play the stock market poker with it, do all kinds of creative things with it and occasionally put some money in "productive endeavors" (factories and "building" real estate). So this money needs a "return on investment", and the best return is to grab some more from the poorer people who are "forced" to buy a home, pay large mortgages and large interests to the banks.

And when nothing else works, they just print more money like the FED or simply write big numbers on computer screens and make the money pop into existence.

A tailored solution for small and medium businesses

This post is for a small medium sized business who needs a presence on the Net and cannot afford or doesn´t want to have its own server.
It would be too expensive, or may be just not suitable because the company is too small to afford an IT department in order to be on the Internet.
For them there are very good solutions like a dedicated server, for example a quite cheap linux server hosting including MySQL servers, e-mail servers, or application servers. It just depends on their requirements and level of expertise.
They can also consider using a control panel such as Parallels Plesk, or Cpanel. With a good hosting company they also get a free expert consultation with a free telephone service.
Or they can choose a more simple to handle managed hosting.
That leaves them the flexibility to focus on their business while the Managed Hosting partner takse good care of their servers.
For the web-based businesses who already own their servers, but want to place them in the right enterprise-class facility with adequate space, temperature control, and security, there is another option: colocation.
And prices can start from as little as $99 per month!
Whatever you choose be sure to look for the right company to fulfill your needs.

Why gamble with your life?

Don’t Be Lured Into a False Sense of Security by the Delay Between Cause and Effect
There is often a delay of several years to decades between science and public policy—a time period that is critical in preventing irreversible health damage. By waiting for government regulations to change, it is often too late. Just as smoking doesn’t cause immediate signs of cancer, the latency period for brain tumors from radiation can be 10, 20, or even 30 years.

It is still too soon for most cell phone-induced brain tumors to show up!

Cell phones have been widely used for only about a decade, so we haven’t even hit the tip of the iceberg yet in terms of the REAL effects of cell phone exposure. If the cell phone popularity continues at its current rate—or increases, which is likely—we could be headed for a brain cancer epidemic, the likes of which the world has never seen.

Just as people don’t get lung cancer a few weeks or months into their smoking habit, there is a delayed effect between cell phone usage and brain tumor development.

Of course, not everyone who smokes gets lung cancer, and not every cell phone user will develop brain cancer. There are many variables that contribute to susceptibility.

But why risk it? Why gamble with your life?

Public Health Déjà Vu
It took nearly TWO DECADES for the government to take action after accepting the evidence that smoking was linked to lung cancer. The government accepted the link between smoking and lung cancer back in the 1950s, but it wasn’t until the 1970s that warning labels were required.

How long do you think it will be before the government takes similar action with regards to cell phone radiation? Or maybe fructose?

Don’t hold your breath waiting for your cell phone to come with a warning on the box.

War can also be Cyber

"The United States is increasingly dependent on information and information technology for both civilian and military purposes, as are many other nations. Although there is a substantial literature on the potential impact of a cyberattack on the societal infrastructure of the United States, little has been written about the use of cyberattack as an instrument of U.S. policy.

Cyberattacks- -actions intended to damage or adversary computer systems or networks--can be used for a variety of military purposes. But they also have application to certain missions of the intelligence community, such as covert action. They may be useful for certain domestic law enforcement purposes, and some analysts believe that they might be useful for certain private sector entities who are themselves under cyberattack. This report considers all of these applications from an integrated perspective that ties together technology, policy, legal, and ethical issues."

How to pay much less than what you get...

SEO is extremely important and you should always think about the level of search engine optimization you are placing into each of your websites.
If you properly SEO your site with good keyword phrases, and relative content, then you can get a ton of traffic from the major search engines.
And traffic IS money.
It is not worth to spend to have a website unless you can make the best out of it.
Do you know what it means do it yourself seo?
It means you can do the optimization of your own website ALL by yourself.
But how?
With the right seo software, which will allow you to submit your site to over 650 directories and search engines with a click of a button, will provide you the right tools to analyze your site for keywords, will teach you everything you must know to upgrade the Search Engine Visibility.
More visibility means more visitors, more visitors means more chances and more chances means more profit.
And the good thing of it is that it will cost you a very little money and even less if you commit yourself for more than one year.
Time is definitely money and waiting too long is also fewer chances to be among the firsts...

One of many ways to prevent cancer

The health hazards of wireless communications will become glaringly apparent sooner or later. But somehow, being able to say "I told you so" just isn't going to bring any satisfaction when that day comes. I'd much rather see intelligence, sanity, and sound science prevail to come up with solid solutions before the worst case scenario becomes reality.

There is still plenty of hope that we can make that happen as this issue is gaining ever more legitimate ground.

A sign of the times is the scheduled releases of not one, but two books on cell phone hazards, by conventional publishers.

The first, "Disconnect" by Dr. Devra Davis, is now available for pre-order.

The other is by Anne Louise Gittleman, called "ZAPPED -- Why Your Cell Phone Shouldn't Be Your Alarm Clock
and 1,268 Ways to Outsmart the Hazards of Electronic Pollution," which is also scheduled for release sometime later this year.

In addition, a new book on Dirty Electricity by epidemiologist, Sam Milham, MD, called "Dirty Electricity" will also be published soon. Dirty electricity means high frequency transients on electrical wiring and is an increasingly prevalent problem.

According to Camilla Rees of, "high electronics, and high RF, environments, and electrical circuits connected to Compact Fluorescent Bulbs, all contribute to increasing levels of dirty electricity in our midst, and dirty electricity has been linked to cancer.

It is especially important we learn about ways to minimize dirty electricity by using capacitors or filters that neutralize this phenomenon. Even solar panels create dirty electricity, but most people in the green building industry are focused on energy efficiency for the consumer, not on ways to address the health impacts of these new technologies."

Let the pixels do your talking

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of faceVsion Technology USA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have a very nice cousin in US: Jeannie.
I live in Germany ( at the moment) and we communicate very often.
We are very distant (she lives in California), but we are very close.
Because we share our thoughts and all what concerns our lives.
Using Skype and a very good video camera.
Never heard of faceVision on line store?
Or faceVsion?
Or FV touchcam N1?

If you do not have the processor power to manage all the pixels you would like to share FV ExpressCombo comes into your help.
The TouchCam N1 from faceVsion is the right tool you need, because includes dual unidirectional mics to ensure that your voice gets through loud and clear from any angle.
The faceVsion TouchCam N1 is the world’s first Skype- certified webcam capable of delivering full screen 720p streaming video over the Internet.
And what is that for? You will certainly ask...
I will explain to you in a few words.
When Jeannie there wants to cook Spaghetti Carbonara and doesn´t know how, here, in Germany, I buy the right ingredients, pancetta (affumicata) cream, eggs and the right kind of spaghetti.
Then I boil the right quantity of water, let it boil, cook the spaghetti and then...I show her how to make the exactly right dish of Carbonara...
May be you do not care, but her husband does...a lot...
So, to make the best dish of Spaghetti carbonara is not enough to have an Italian cousin, you also need the right technology...
I do not go further into details, I let you imagine WHAT kind of pixels you can send and receive of course...
Have fun!
