Your Questions About Anonymous Twitter

Lisa asks…

Is the fun over for Andy Anonymous on Twitter now…or anyone who’s misguided gossip is being taken seriously?

Of course it’s a bit too late for Angry Gigs (‘anagram’ 4/5) to get his solicitors to run to California and shout & scream, but will Twitter – and others who have (or might) jump on the name ‘n’ shame bandwagon act quickly?

barry0912 answers:

I feel terrible for Ryan Giggs, all he wanted was his secret kept hidden.

And the last person in the world you would expect to kiss and tell would be a Nuts Magazine topless model, low IQ fame hungry ex-Big Brother contestant renowned for making sex tapes and posting them online.

I mean, just who the hell CAN you trust these days?

Michael asks…

WTF. Did Anonymous “hack” Twitter?

Theres been a lot of talk about Anonymous “hacking” sites lately, and now twitter has been down for like 30 minutes, so I’m guessing they’re behind it. Does anyone know? What do they think this will accomplish?

And yes, I know they can’t actually hack sites, its just a DDOs or something.

barry0912 answers:

Stop putting ” at hack.

They do actually hack. And they have not hacked twitter yet.
It’s up to the government.

Your Questions About Low Cost Spay And Neuter

Mark asks…

Do the low cost spay and neuter vans do just as good as work as veterinarian office spay and neuters?

I convinced my friend with the chihuahua to spay her dog but she can only afford the low cost spay and neuter vans. She is worried they will not do as good of a job like if she had taken her dog to a vets office.
She is worried about it, any advise on easing her worries.

barry0912 answers:

Actually, in my humble opinion, a low cost spay and nueter van can do a better job then a vets office. Sound a bit strange? Consider this: Would you rather have a mechanic fix your brakes that has done a few brake jobs or one that has done a hundred brake jobs? Would you rather have a cake made by a baker that makes hundreds of cakes a day or a baker that makes a few cakes a week? NOw having made that point…consider this…

Most low cost spay programs are not attended by a “guy they found on the corner”. They are staffed with real vets and vet techs that have taken a day to do their part to lower the dog and cat population. Chances are whoever is in that van has his or her own practice somewhere that can be called and verified.

Donna asks…

Can anyone tell me where to find a low cost spay neuter clinic in Windsor Ontario Canada?

I have looked on the web and can not find an address. my brother needs to get his cats shots. Thank you for any information.

barry0912 answers:

HI Pamela…nearly most animal shelters worldwide will provide low cost spay/neuter and vaccinations services.

Here’s one:
Windsor/Essex County Humane Society
http://www.windsorhumane.org/about.htm
1375 Provincial Road
Windsor, On N8W 5V8
519-966-5751

If they don’t provide the services consider asking them who does so you are pointed in the right direction.

Think about the conversation between the systems development team and the people from Marathon Vitamin shop?

1.INTRODUCTION MARATHON VITAMIN SHOPS

Marathon Vitamin Shops was successful in getting its Web site up and running. The Web developers put the company’s entire catalog online and included a choice of skins so that each type of customers would enjoy using the Web site.

The analysts are meeting with owner Bill Berry and some employees to evaluate customers’ feedback as well as give their own reactions to the new Web site. They are meeting in a large conference room, where they have a computer with Internet access and a projector. As they sit down at the table, the entry screen for the Web site is projected at the front of the room. “The Website has attracted lots of attention, but we want to give the customers even more so that they keep coming back,” says Bill, gesturing to the screen.

He continues. “It’s not like we’re closing our retail stores or any thing. In fact, it’s just the opposite. When customers notice we’re on the Web, they’re eager to locate the store in their community. They want to be able to walk into store and talk to a trained expert rather than buying everything over the Internet. We need to tell people how to get there.”

“We think we can improve the site by adding special enhancements and features, ‘says AI Falfa, a member of the systems team, who originally developed and implemented the ecommerce Web site.

“Yes,” says Ginger Rute one of the other members of the systems development team, as she nods in agreement.” Blockbuster and Borders use a mapping facility from MapQuest, and Home Depot uses maps from Microsoft Vicinity, which also produces MapBlast!”

Vita Minn, another member of the original systems development team, speaks up enthusiastically, saying, “We know of a couple good message board service and chat rooms we can build into our Web site. We think they can improve the stickiness of the site, making people stay on the site longer and also making them want to return.”

“That’s a great idea, “says Jin Singh, one of the technologically savvy Marathon employees. “We can let customers talk with one another; tell each other about a product they liked, and so on. We could even let them start their own blogs.”

Vita continues by moving to the computer keyboard and saying, “Let me show you the sites at www.planetgov.com and www.worldviewer.com.” As she types in the first URL, the group sees the site projected. “They use chat systems from ichat and Multicity.com, respectively,” she continues.

“Customers also need to search for more information about a product or manufacturer,” AI adds. “Let’s make it easier for them. Let’s look at www.Cincinnati.com for an example. They use Atomz to search for information. “

After listening intently, Bill speaks up. “Medical information could also be useful” he says. “I’ve notice that www.medpool.com has medical news from NewsEdge. I’ve seen people on the treadmills at my health and fitness centre watching the financial channels while they exercise.”

“While we’re at it, why don’t we add news and financial information to the web site?” Ginger asks. “I notice that www.nmmm.com has market news from a company called Moreover.com.”

Think about the conversation between the systems development team and the people from Marathon Vitamin shops. Some of the enhancement suggestions involve taking advantage of free service; others required payments ranging from $1000 to $5000 annually. Although some were good ideas, others may not be practical or feasible. Perhaps some of the ideas just do not make sense for the company.

For each of the following, review what you know about the mission and business activities of Marathon Vitamin Shops. Then make a critical and analytical recommendation regarding each option the analyst and client have made and defend it:
Mashups using Google Maps
Chat rooms and message boards
Blogs
Search engines
Medical information
News feeds and financial markets information.

Subsequently choose any 4 suitable options based on your critical analysis and recommendation and develop the sites to value add Marathon Vitamin Shops.

Dubbed the F458 Italia this new Prancing Horse is often a actual beast. Ferrari have offered the green lights to release the first official pictures with the 570 horsepower Italian beast and it really is a actual badass Yes the F430s major brother can have a four.5L V8. Thank God they didnt go for any turbocharged V6 approach. The F458 Italia will hit sixty two mph in 3.four seconds and get to a peak of 202 mph Not poor The outdated F430 was caught during the 190s and in many cases the Scuderia could not hit 200. Here is the actual be troubled – these are the figures for an entry stage product. Ferrari will definitely acquire ways to grant it additional electrical power better aerodynamics and give it bigger overall performance. But will they sacrifice inside comfort and ease as they did with many of the previous high-performance designs
The F430 alternative is speculated on for more than a 12 months now and just after viewing some in depth entire body do the job suspension and also the engine bay we can easily now look into the whole point. Sexevideo It is really a shocker to say the minimum. The initial matter I seen is the headlights have now got the seems to be that may eliminate even the toughest of your hard. And it doesnt appear to be a two-mouthed frog now that the front bumper is back again to typical. Oh and it jogs my memory on the Aston Martin One-77 with all those enormous wheel arches Good design and style Ferrari Investigate a frontside see of your mighty F458 Italia Here.

The style is now sleeker and shares some style cues while using the Enzo. The F430 was a little more civilized in its looks but the new F458 Italia is mad Oh now that I outlined the title I need to consult what the hell was wrong with F450 I understand its a thing to do with its four.5L V8 but precisely what is the 8 carrying out in there Most likely stands for V8 simply to make certain individuals understand that it is just a V8. Think about if it had 10 or 12 cylinders. I think the math gurus more than at Ferrari would entirely eliminate it.
One more problem the tail lights. It seems to be very similar to the 599 GTB the California plus the Scalieti. Youll find it acquired just one round light sticking up and out on each side. Just take a examine this photograph. I liked it way more when there was a pair of lights on each side like they did during the F430 as well as Enzo.
Alright considering the fact that Ive hated Ferrari permanently until finally they released the F430 how will this affect my views on Ferrari Perfectly I am going to be straightforward. Im getting progressively more of a Ferrari fan. Im confident the Lamborghini along with the Porsche side of me will fight honestly tough to see wholl release much more of their precious space for this new Prancing Horse. Sexevideo

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Strategies

Nancy asks…

Which of the following marketing messages are consumers most likely to trust?

A TV commercial
An article about the company in a city newspaper
An Internet advertisement
A phone conversation with an employee of the company

Which of the following can help you evaluate the performance of your ads and other marketing strategies?

Asking competitors what they think of your advertising strategy
Collecting secondary data about your target market
Asking customers how they found out about your company or product
Sending out a press release multiple times

barry0912 answers:

Theres no better trust than 1 to 1. But, your question depends on the power of the advert. Plus, phone conversations are next best thing to 1 to 1, but only if they know you are calling. We all expect a sales call dont we, and we all hate em. To evaluate performance of ads? Ask the people who bothered to react why they bothered? Ask as many people as you can what they think of you ads and put the info together to get an idea.

Robert asks…

Describe several B2B technologies and applications?

Scenario:

Your brother owns a gourmet food company named Grandma’s Treats, and he is faced with an interesting decision. He inherited your grandmother’s recipe box and adapted the recipes to accommodate his wife’s diabetes. You, your friends, and relatives couldn’t tell that his creations were low sugar, and word of his delicious baked goods spread throughout the community. Last year, he left his full-time job to produce and sell his creations to the public, caterers, and restaurants. Recently, one of his restaurant chain clients approached him to supply all of their locations. They also suggested that he could attract more customers and operate his business more effectively if he creates a website, advertises, and sells his “treats” on the World Wide Web. You have more business experience than your brother does, so you’ve offered to help him investigate this opportunity. Starting an e-business, or expanding a current business into the Internet, involves as much planning and risk
as starting or expanding a traditional business. Some of the things that you have to consider include:

The cost of the technology.
The design of the website.
The marketing strategies you will use.
The choices of what to sell and how to sell it over the Internet.
The advantages of online communication with customers and suppliers.
The risks of doing business on the Internet.
You start exploring alternatives and seek the advice of experienced e-business professionals. There is a lot to learn, and you have heard many stories about people who have started e-businesses (or traditional businesses) and end up failing because they did not have or follow a solid plan.
You will strive to understand some of the basic principles of e-business in addition to understanding traditional business strategies so you can make wise choices as you bring your brother’s business into the Information Age. The varieties of tasks you will pursue are the development of an e-commerce plan, the exploration of different technologies that are used competitively in e-business, Internet marketing strategies, security, and ethics.

QUESTION:
Describe several B2B technologies and applications, as well as describe several applications or ways B2C can use technology that Grandma’s Treats could utilize as part of an e-business strategy. Search the Cybrary and provide at least two research citations that illustrate examples of companies that are utilizing e-business strategies (e.g., B2B, B2C), and discuss how Grandma’s Treats could benefit from employing similar strategies.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Association

Thomas asks…

Should We Expect a Rise in Co-Op Based Personal Economics?

The alternatives would seem to be trying to fix a broken system, that is on fire, and totally dysfunctional, and utterly unable to receive any information from outside it’s broken self.

or

We can just do nothing and slide down the drain as the whole US economy and all US power in the world slides down the drain, so at least we didn’t waste any effort trying to do anything to save ourselves ..

or

We could start building personal networks of Co-Op based economics.

There are 1000 kinds of Co-Ops (food, clothing, toys, books, tools, fuel, vitamins, whatever).

A sovereign individual who is in some way productive could join one or several co-operatives and make it a policy “I never buy anything from anybody that doesn’t buy anything from me.”

These would all be considered restraints of trade, under the Sheman Act, the Clayton Act, the Robinson Patman Act etc, but with the government collapsing under its own weight and into it own corruption and filth, it is very unlikely that they will send a team of DOJ lawyers to your house to monitor and convict you of the crime of economic survival. Remember you have a right to a jury trial. The other folks on the jury might be doing the same thing or getting ready to.

So, the sovereign individual, by necessity, operates maybe not so much in accordance with each and every rule that was popular in 1940. Necessity is often a legal excuse, and sometimes even a justification.

Trading communes could link up, so many specialized communes can trade through hubs. This is on a members only basis. Membership is protected by freedom of association guarantees in the First Amendment, that’s why some country clubs still get to pick and choose their members. Trading communes are like clubs not like public markets. They are more like intra-nets or LANs than they are like the Internet.

To stay viable they need two things — They need legacies — fairly large ones — help defray their very frugal but unavoidable administrative and legal expenses. There are tons of rich people in USA. Some believe in the sovereign inidividual concept. They want to see more of it, instead of a sluide into socialism and finally into anarchy. So legacies are a possibility. If PBS and NPR can get them, why not Economic Self-Reliance Communes?

The other thing that’s needed is exports. But not exports to China. Just to outside the Commune. Stuff has to be created within the commune and sold to outsiders for gold, or cash that is immediately converted into gold. This is called Merchantilism — and it was the entire basis of the economic success of USA during the period 1787 till 1887. It does work. And the exporting is easy — just take the stuff down the block, sell it at a farmer’s market, sell it on Ebay, or Craig’s list. It’s exporting because it is merchantilist trading with an outside economic actor.

Hard cash is needed even by sovereign individuals because they can’t make their own patent pharmaceuticals. They have to trade with the world for that. They can’t do their own surgical operations. They can’t build their own computer chips. So, for some things there has to be disposable hard cash. That means the Commune must have a source — Legacies and Exports.

Three basic choices (1) fix an unfiaxable system (2) passively go down the drain with it or (3) unplug from it and start an alternative economics — a new reality, when the old one won’t do.

In management this third option would be an example of the Blue Ocean Strategy, first made popular by the Boston Consulting Group.

It’s for smart people.

So thank goodness for the First Amendment — not every highway has to be a public highway.

Networks of Trading Communes linked together by quality control, well designed goods, and free flow of information — everybody in the system gives good weight — liike Bob Dylan said — when you live outside the law you MUST be honest.

This does not bring down capitalism. It does not bring down socialism. It bypasses both with harm to neither. It’s inherently convivial — live and let live. Exercise your liberty or you don’t merit its continuance!

barry0912 answers:

I respectfully differ with Bored Goblin: if employee ownership can work in a company as large as Publix Supermarkets, and it works well enough that Kroger tends to avoid going head-to-head against Publix, the only Krogers left in Florida being standalone drugstores, then I see no reason that hospitals and manufacturing firms cannot follow the cooperative model.

Some years ago on MacNeil/Lehrer instead of doing the usual Hallmark Card boilerplate Thanksgiving story an economist did a report on the economic history of the Pilgrim and Puritan colonies: They failed as Corporations because the workers did not achieve their maximal productivity for the benefit of absentee owners, they failed as collectives because the free riders floated along at the expense of the producers, but succeeded as cooperative ventures where the rewards of productivity were more equitably portioned, thus giving the workers greater incentive to work hard and well.

Does this news article about textbook piracy make any sense?

A textbook case of piracy
By Alex Beam
Globe Columnist / September 9, 2008
I was heartened to learn that college kids are wielding the same Internet piracy tools they used to bring down the recording industry to download textbooks. Although the textbook oligopolists are fighting back mightily – the Association of American Publishers uses Covington & Burling, a take-no-prisoners law firm in Washington, D.C., to hunt down malefactors – there are at least two sites still around offering books: Textbook Torrents tends to be shut down, and moves around the Web, but the last time I checked, thepiratebay.org was offering such books as – well, you’ll see.

As a writer, how can I support this? I should be an absolutist on copyright protection for all books, magazines, and newspapers. But I’m not. The publishers have disgraced themselves, and they are paying the price. Three-hundred-dollar textbooks in the hard sciences are not unusual, and the companies are selling to a captive audience. Hundred-dollar add-ons, masquerading as digital workbooks, or problem-solving sets, are not uncommon.

Publishers love to put out bogus “new” editions to drive a stake though the heart of the used textbook market, which was gaining its second wind at online auction sites. It’s not as if calculus changed since Newton invented it, is the rallying cry you hear from student activists.

How do I know textbook publishers are nothing but pirates in pin-striped suits? Because when the fast-buck artists take over a company like Houghton Mifflin, they never talk about how proud they are to be publishing Philip Roth and J.R.R. Tolkien. They know they are going to make a killing in the profit-choked textbook division, which gorges on the goodwill of parents who want their children to be properly equipped for college courses.

Now most textbook publishers are going digital, and Amazon is promising a larger-format Kindle reader for the student market. The publishers say that iTexts, which often cost less than $100, save students money. But their opponents, led by a coalition of Student Public Interest Research Groups, point out that the password-protected digi-texts put the sword to the used-book market so despised by the publishers.

Congress has gotten into the act, legislating more “transparency” in textbook pricing in the just-passed Higher Education Opportunity Act. It looks like a jumble of half-measures to me. If it had any teeth, the publishers would be squawking madly.

A young Northeastern University student named Shawn Fanning wrung billions of dollars of excess profits from the record companies when he invented Napster. Yes, it’s true that recording “artists” now gouge young people 10 times more aggressively at the concert turnstiles than they ever did at Tower Records stores, which no longer exist around here. But Steve Jobs found the right price point for music at iTunes. Between the pirates and the publishers, we’ll find our way to the right price point for textbooks, too.

Now it’s time to arbitrage . . . tuition.

Don’t steal this book
Inevitably, a reviewer will call John Hanson Mitchell, author of “The Paradise of All These Parts: A Natural History of Boston,” a latter-day Henry David Thoreau, not necessarily a compliment. Call him what you will – in real life, he edits the Massachusetts Audubon Society magazine Sanctuary – he is a smart guy, walking around, paying attention. I’d name his genre nostalgic realism; Mitchell certainly knows where this city and its many peculiar institutions come from, and he understands modernity as well.

I love that his brother owns a boat named after Richard Henry Dana, and that it doesn’t have an engine – there’s Boston in a nutshell. I think this book will take its place next to Walter Muir Whitehill’s “Boston,” with engravings by Rudolph Ruzicka, as one of the treasured Hub tomes of our time.

Able was I . . .
Ere I saw Alaska? Send in your Sarah Palin-dromes! A palindrome is a phrase that makes sense read forward and backward – e.g., “Madam, I’m Adam.” I think there’s a lot to work with here: Is Levi vile? Close, but no cigar. I’ll buy the winner a used copy of the kind of book that Governor Palin wanted to keep out of her local library – “Huckleberry Finn,” perhaps.
