Linda asks…

How does heavyweight boxing decide on title defenses?

More specifically, how long can a champ go without defending his title? Lastly, why aren’t there more unified titles and which title is the most prestigious?

barry0912 answers:

The most prestigious of the heavyweight belts is probably the WBC title, but many fight fans don’t have much respect for any of the titles. Some even prefer the Ring magazine champions, even though they’re not an actual boxing organization.

I think most organizations require their champs to defend their titles twice a year–one of those times against a mandatory challenger. The following with more details is from the WBC rules linked below (section 1.21):
“All WBC recognized champions must defend their title at least two (2) times a year. Champions will defend their titles either in a voluntary or mandatory defense…. All WBC champions are obligated to make at least one yearly mandatory defense”

Each of the different boxing organizations is out to make the most money possible out of it, so they may be a bit lenient with who the mandatory challenger is if they see some extra cash on the table. I think it’s also a money issue that they don’t like to see the titles unified, but I don’t completely understand that. The WBA even has a “superchampion” that becomes their new recognized champion if their regular champion unifies other titles also. (This is one of the things that has turned many people away from the “alphabet” titles.)

Your Questions About Internet Marketing News

Mark asks…

What does this mean as a marketing plan?

So this guy is explaining a marketing plan for GM volt because they have been loosing money as we all know. but i do not get it what does he mean by a relationship with facebook. how can they help

“Speaking of engaging with consumers, reconsider your approach to Facebook. I find it hard to believe that GM marketers cannot partner with Facebook management to create both paid and unpaid solutions that engage consumers on what is unquestionably the most effective social-media platform.

I’m sure the Facebook leadership team values and understands the category. Seems pretty simple to me, and the amount being spent is minuscule as a percent of total measured media.”

barry0912 answers:

The link is to the website of Autonews, an auto industry magazine, and consists of a former GM executive giving marketing advice to GM. Facebook and other internet social media are simply part of any corporate marketing plan in today’s world. All companies do social media marketing.

Volt is definitely not losing money. The Reuters news article that proclaimed Volt’s losses made some very basic accounting errors. Developments costs of a car are typically amortized over the lifetime of a vehicle, not simply one year. Any car would look stupidly unprofitable if you did that. A rebuttal of the Reuter’s article by another former GM executive is below:

Richard asks…

should public library Internet be filtered?

barry0912 answers:

That delves into censorship of the independant information network. My opinion is no, only because it really won’t matter soon, at least in the US. The Internet in the US is being made to adopt the market standard soon, silencing independent websites, including independent news sources that up until now, have been free from the censorship of any governing body, or their controling interests.

Now if you are speaking about things such as pornography, is uppose that if the library was NOT a public one then ti could be done, though the nature of a library being part of a public institution sort of negates the possibility of it having the right to any OPINION regarding such materials, from a literal standpoint. Now, it has been done in some states in the US, as we are transitioning into a different form of government right now that will allow for this. A Federal Police State allows for the norms and social standards deemed acceptable by the ruling party/parties to be impressed passively upon the public body, as the public body would no longer be the ruling body. A voting system will still exist, but only because the appearance of choice is nessecary to maintain order in our “culture”.

So I guess the answer is yes, and no, and eventually yes. Hahaha.

Donna asks…

Anyone ever had Internet Marketing one-on-one coaching?

I’m very interested in this field, but I want to make sure I start my business correctly. I think if I hire someone who is already successful at this, then it will increase my chances of success. If you’ve had this experience then what can I expect from coaching, do they walk you though with easy steps, or is it going to be much more complicated than I think. Your opinions Please.

barry0912 answers:

In the Internet Marketing world or any industry it is about reputation. If you choose to do it yourself or choose someone to represent your company than you need to make sure you get published and brand the person that is give one-on-one coaching. It may be hard to find someone that is already a big name in the industry but if you start a blog and write articles for an Internet marketing magazine than you can promote that exposure. Good luck!

Internet Revolution???????

On the topic of Internet Revolution or Digital Revolution, is it possible if you can give me some internet sources? (links that talks about internet revolution through bbc, fox, mbc, ect)

I can find articles that explain WHAT internet revolution IS, but i can’t really find articles that talk about their opinions on internet revolution, like pros or cons. Thanks!

barry0912 answers:

Try a search like this using Google News:

“internet revolution” opinion

https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&gl=us&tbm=nws&q=internet+revolution+opinion&oq=internet+revolution+opinion&gs_l=news-cc.3..43j43i53.2755.6543.0.6825.27.10.0.17.1.0.147.1021.6j4.10.0…0.0…1ac.1.oYyXw4Gy97I#hl=en&sugexp=cpsugrccggmnoe&gs_rn=14&gs_ri=psy-ab&tok=_0bl2-O6mUsd9mEWNXQnCg&ds=n&pq=internet%20revolution%20opinion&cp=30&gs_id=40&xhr=t&q=%22internet+revolution%22+opinion&es_nrs=true&pf=p&gl=us&tbm=nws&sclient=psy-ab&oq=%22internet+revolution%22+opinion+&gs_l=&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.46865395,d.cGE&fp=55b25e68d9baa2dd&biw=1366&bih=643

Your other best option would be to use your local public or college library databases (such as National Newspaper Core [Proquest], EBSCO Newspapers, Opposing Viewpoints, etc.)

It may help your search of the open Web or of the databases if you can use additional related keywords in your search. Words that might signify the *kind* of opinions you’re looking to find.
Globalization
free markets
online generation
freedom
outsourcing
specific country names
censorship
the list can be extended as far as your vocabulary and time to search allows

For more ideas and/or sources open a chat with a librarian near you.

Donald asks…

Who owns CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, Wall Street Journal etc…?

and most other major purveyors of news that we digest here in the USA?

I am speaking of the actual people, the majority stock holders, the ones who have the power to shape an agenda or political leaning of a particular news source.

When you look at who the owners are, would you then say that the most such news organizations lean most towards being liberal or conservative….and what does this tell you about the news that we get?
