Your Questions About Anonymous Surfing

James asks…

What is a good program to use for anonymous Internet surfing?

A lot has happened in these past five years and although I don’t really feel any safer now than I did in 2001, I DO feel like Americans have more to fear from their government than from any terrorist. However, I don’t think that RIGHT NOW I have any real concerns about using the web, but who the hell knows what the laws will be in the future…?

Your Questions About Title Ix

Betty asks…

Why do people say it violates Title IX if college football athletes are given a stipend?

Based on all of these incidents by agents I believe college football athletes of all schools and a certain division should be paid a stipend about the same maybe about $100,000.

It is a known fact that college football brings more revenue to schools than any other male sports or female sports so I find it silly for some to say it would discriminate against athletes of all other sports to play football players more when their sport brings in more revenue.

barry0912 answers:

Technically it wouldn’t, if you also paid some women’s athletes as well, although that would be difficult to afford. Title IX requires funding to fit the “Three-Prong Test” which goes as follows:

1. Prong one – Providing athletic participation opportunities that are substantially proportionate to the student enrollment, OR
2. Prong two – Demonstrate a continual expansion of athletic opportunities for the underrepresented sex, OR
3. Prong three – Full and effective accommodation of the interest and ability of underrepresented sex.

Credit must go to Wikipedia where I stole those from because it was easier than rewording it myself. Anyway, if any of those can be proven a school is in compliance with Title IX. It’s often stated funding for men’s and women’s sports has to be equal, which isn’t quite true, though that probably helps a school be considered in compliance. Scholarships usually are equal, which is why women actually have an easier time getting scholarships in most sports compared to men, as so much money already goes to football and basketball scholarships there are very few left over for other men’s sports, whereas women’s sports generally don’t bring in much money at all and can be more evenly distributed among the sports. And that, I think, is where this would fail Title IX. It would provide more money to male athletes female athletes wouldn’t have access to. Money taken in per sport doesn’t matter, gender alone matters. If money taken in per sport was the deciding factor most sports would cease to exist at the collegiate level because most sports don’t bring in a single cent of revenue.

(By the way, “underrepresented sex” really should be written “women.” Women’s sports can outnumber men’s sports and in fact SEC schools are required to have at least 2 more women’s sports than men’s. Men can be underrepresented with no penalty at all. But perhaps that’s an entirely different discussion.)

There are so many issues with paying football players it’s hard to know where to begin. Besides the simple fact schools probably couldn’t afford it, it would finally finish off amateurism for good in college football. It would probably actually negatively affect men’s sports more than women’s. So much money would be going to football other men’s sports would have to be shut down in order to pay for it and still not wipe out women’s athletics. It would potentially be the end of college athletics as we know it.

I personally would quit watching college football the day they pay the players more than they already get paid. Besides scholarships, you ought to see some of the things they get for free from schools. I had a roommate in college on the track and field team who had all sorts of duffel bags, notebooks, backpacks, etc. He could get directly from the school for free. If track and field athletes are getting that when they bring in a minimal amount of money I can’t imagine what the football players are getting.

Charles asks…

How does the elimination of 171 boy’s wrestling teams (Thanks to Title IX) equal “gender equality”?

Of course it’s all supposed to be about ‘proportionality’. So if more boys voluntary take part in sports activities due to equal opportunity, to enforce ‘equal outcome’ the colleges are either sued, or the teams are disbanded, to allow more girls to enter these activities. Now isn’t that quota messed up? Equal opportunities should not lead to equal outcomes being mandatory forced by law.

barry0912 answers:

They should disband student governments in the same manner if it’s all about equality as they are primarily populated by females.

Really I don’t think they should do for either but if you are going to do it to one; it should be done to both.

Paul asks…

Internet Marketing general guides?

I need some general help and guides about Internet Marketing and Online Business
anybody can help ?!

barry0912 answers:

There’s a lot of free information on the various marketing forums like ewealth, warriorforum, wickedefire (add .com)

Some marketing gurus have a generous amount of free information on their blogs, try googling internet marketing, affiliate marketing.

It’s a big field, asking a more specific question might help focus your direction.

Most people who venture into internet marketing fail, often dropping a plan just as it was about to pay off, marketing with paid advertising requires a lot of fine tuning, testing and more testing in order to see a profit.

If you were a successful brick and mortar business I would suggest looking into stompernet a training facility with a vast library of internet marketing information, (and some decent freebies) once priced at $800/mo, I think membership is now $197, still only cost effective for a serious operator needing to get up to speed quickly.

Your Questions About Internet Marketing Jobs

Steven asks…

Any real jobs out there my dad can do from home on Google or Yahoo?

I see these kind of jobs advertised sometimes but they seem bogus? He’s okay at home but doesn’t get around much anymore. Still sharp and etc. Needs extra cash.

barry0912 answers:

Perhaps the majority of money making offers on the internet are scams of some sort. Most people who try to make money on the internet fail, the worst may be the surveys, paid to click, shopping rewards thing that I doubt anyone can make a living from. That one fake new blog showing the mom making some $10k part time, used to say posting links for Google before they sued 50 such sites.

If you can write you can find web site article writing freelance jobs that mostly pay $3 to $5 though a writer qualified to write for as an expert for major sites might get more like $10 – $75 per 500 word article.

Someone with unique knowledge might be able to write a blog that eventually, it really has to be an exceptional site with regular new additions to get search engine ranking and enough visitors to earn a bit of advertising revenue. One can start with a free blog host like Blogger.com

A small percentage of people who try affiliate marketing actually succeed, some do quite well, having web development knowledge, sales experience and good management skills would have a better chance.
Many Internet Marketing rookies hang out at Warriorforum.com member written WSO tutorials sell for relatively little money.

I am always suggesting the one looks into freelance marketplace sites as a way to earn money more immediately, these include freelancer.com and odesk.com, while more geared for technicians, you also can find writing projects and simple seo tasks, while there is worldwide competition, a native English writer has a big advantage. One of the easiest to get into is freelancer.com it’s also prone to having lower paying projects and wild west lawlessness, older established sites like elance or vWorker have tighter standards and may have membership fees to keep out the riffraff.

There are also micro task sites that pay small change for a few minutes work, popular with 3rd world countries, some in the U.S. Do them instead of crossword puzzles, the original was created by Amazon, the online store to ‘automate’ tasks a computer couldn’t do, like pick the better of 2 pictures, they named mturk.com after the 18th century Mechanical Turk chess playing machine that had a man hidden inside, shortTask and microworkers have similar micro tasks, some individual jobs are a bit shady, like signing up for product trials, doing surveys, but you get to choose which tasks to perform.

Your Questions About Title Insurance

Mandy asks…

What value does a real estate lawyer add on top of title insurance?

If title insurance already protects against:
– survey errors
– legal description errors
– negligence
– forgery
– liens

and negates the need for:
– zoning compliance certificate
– tax certificate
– hydro/water/gas certificates
– law society levy

what value does a real estate lawyer add on top?

Is it just for wading through the legalese in the Offer and the Agreement?

barry0912 answers:

Depends on the transaction, if it’s a refinance, I would tend to agree with you even though I don’t understand what you mean by stating title insurance negates the need for tax and water certificate. I’d also be cautious of the legal description errors. I had a situation in NY, purchase, where the deed to the property did not contain a legal description at all. The previous title company would not give us a letter of indemity for our title and then come to find out our title underwriter would not accept it, the original deed had to be found and re-recorded, no exception, so I guess it depends on what you mean by “errors” On a purchase transaction, they usually add more value due to the purchase contracts and drafting of deeds, etc. To be bluntly honest, most attorneys usually dont even touch the file unless there is a major problem, their paralegals handle the day to day operations

Lisa asks…

Who is responsible for selling a bad title insurance policy?

I had property line dispute with my neighbor and my title insurance policy(First American Title Insurance Company) does not want to pay my $7k attorney fees for preparing the claim . They did not cover my out of pocket legal fees. I was sold a crappy policy 10 years ago when I purchased my residence. Who is in charge of choosing the title insurance company? Escrow company or the agent?

barry0912 answers:

Normally the real estate agent or the escrow officer select a title company they are accustom to working with. This is prevalent throughout the mortgage and real estate industry.

What the real estate agent or escrow loan or loan officer fail to tell their clients is that they may select the services of their choice.

Even if your title was not in excess of 10 year the title company only guarantee that liens against the property after your purchase would be paid and you would be getting a clean title to the property. You did not get a crappy title insurance policy.

I have used First American Title Insurance and have found them to be a competent title company over the years.

In most states and counties a property has been assigned a lot and parcel number with the dimension recorded at the county court where the property is located. If there is a dispute about the property as to where it ends and how much is yours, then you would have to hire a survey company to complete a survey to determine property lines.

I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.

barry0912 answers:

Cable broadband Internet service.
In large subscriber surveys, Cox receives the highest scores for performance, customer service and reliability among cable broadband ISPs. A cable modem is included for free if you install it yourself. Download speeds top out at 4.0Mbps compared to dial-up (50Kbps) and DSL (generally 1.5Mbps or 3.0Mbps). Subscribers to other Cox services can get a discount of $10 to $15 per month. Cox isn’t available in all markets; in that case, Earthlink cable also gets high scores.
• Earthlink cable
(*est. $42 per month)

>> Where to buy
Cable broadband ISP.
Earthlink ties with Cox as the best cable ISP, and is the best choice if Cox isn’t available in your area. Earthlink also gets high scores for overall customer satisfaction and reliability, though its technical support ratings have slipped in the last year. Earthlink includes a highly regarded spam filter, along with other security features. Speed is rated at 5.0Mbps, and a modem is free with self-installation. If neither Cox nor Earthlink is available in your area, Road Runner and Optimum Online cable services are close runners-up.
• SBC Yahoo DSL Pro
(*est. $22 for the first six months, $35 thereafter)

>> Where to buy
DSL Internet service.
Reviews say cable Internet service is faster than DSL, but DSL is usually less expensive. DSL is also available in several speed classes, so you can choose to sacrifice some speed for a lower monthly bill. Among DSL service providers, SBC Yahoo and Verizon get the highest ratings for reliability and overall customer satisfaction. Yahoo’s standard DSL gets up to 3.0Mbps downstream — comparable to most cable ISPs — yet Yahoo DSL costs less. Availability depends upon your local phone-service provider, since DSL works through existing phone lines. (SBC will soon change its name to AT&T as it completes a merger with that company.)
• Verizon basic DSL
(*est. $15 per month, 768Kbps download speed)

>> Where to buy
Budget DSL.
While most cable and DSL services reach download speeds of 3.0Mbps, Verizon’s new budget DSL has a maximum downstream speed of just 768Kbps. While much slower than other broadband, basic Verizon DSL service is still 15 times faster than a dial-up connection. And because it is DSL, your connection to the Internet is always on and it doesn’t tie up your phone line. While reviews say Verizon’s basic DSL service is nowhere near as fast as other broadband, its low cost makes it a compelling alternative to a slower dial-up ISP like AOL or Earthlink dial-up, both of which are more expensive.
• Earthlink dial-up
(*est. $22 per month)

>> Where to buy
Dial-up.
Earthlink tops nearly every review we found for dial-up Internet service, and it’s available just about everywhere. Reviews say Earthlink dial-up is easy to set up, has thousands of access numbers, and has a low call and Web-page failure rate. Its cost is average for an unlimited dial-up ISP, but if Verizon’s basic DSL is available in your area, Verizon is faster and less expensive.
• NetZero or Juno dial-up
(Up to 10 hours of free usage per month)

>> Where to buy
Free Dial-up.
If your needs amount to occasionally checking your e-mail or a little Web surfing, NetZero and Juno (which are owned by the same parent company) offer a free dial-up Internet connection for up to ten hours each month. In exchange for a free ISP, you’ll have to contend with permanent advertising on your computer screen. Once your ten hours are up, you’ll be charged about $10 a month for ad-free access.
