I own guns, don't have a problem with background checks, but don't think it was good legislation. Wouldn't address the issue, but it would let everybody breathe a sigh of relief and say with self-satisfaction, "Yep, we fixed that" Then nothing REAL would get done.Guns aren't the problem, violence is the problem. Criminals aren't concerned about obtaining guns legally. Trying to solve gun violence with background checks is like fighting drunk driving by making it harder for so

Last night (April 12, 2013) I attended Jay's masterful WAbinar "Ultimate Marketing with Video and Audio".Anyone attending will remember the search term "how to develop your own iphone app"I just Googled that term and found page after page of results like this: wsls.com is a television station in central North Carolina. Am I getting different results than Jay because I am also in NC and so Google thinks this is relevant to me? How did MakeGamesWithUs get that meta description inserted i

Hey everybody,I just ran across this article on Slate about the possibility of charging senders to have email reach your inbox.http://goo.gl/2vNYPI think the technology exists, or will. Don't know how commonly used it would be.Think about it. Would you spend 5 bucks, 10 bucks a month to manage email and avoid unwanted solicitations. Or charge advertisers to put their ad in your inbox?And, of course, think of the ramifications for email marketing. Although, recipients do have to opt in.I thin

Perennial contender for Worst Company in America - PayPal - has quietly (I didn't use the word sneaky) changed their terms of service in the event of a dispute.

I am struggling with a submission to Street Articles. I have searched the SA site as well as WA and can't find ANY reference to explain what I THINK would be a fairly common process.On Wednesday I submitted an article to SA. I included an image from Free Digital Photos.net.Their TOS require a simple acknowledgement or rather an attribution.

I just logged into my Adsense account and much to my surprise I have EARNINGS! Yay! I don't check the account often because I haven't been ranking. One site climbed to #15 on Google, stayed for 10 days, then dropped completely off the radar. Another site has been up and down, but never above #100. It's about #40 on both Bing and Yahoo.
