Department of Justice Website Hacked


(Image from

Anonymous has claimed responsibility via their official Twitter account for hacking the Department of Justice, Universal Music Group, and RIAA websites.
According to the tweets by Anonymous, the shut down of the websites is in retaliation for the U.S. federal agencies shutdown of the file-sharing site This shutdown was done due to piracy claims made by Universal Music Group.

This attack occurs while controversies about the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA), anti-piracy bills in the U.S. Congress are being reviewed.
Though piracy is detrimental to artists and writers of various media, the individuals committing the piracy should be dealt with. Shutting down services that are used ethically and legally by others because of those who are not, is like using an axe when a scalpel will do.

Using hacking to protest such actions though is also akin to terrorizing which is a group of mini-terrorists (Anonymous) against a big terrorist.(U.S. Justice Department) The fact that the website of U.S. government could be hacked shows the vulnerability of having one’s inner workings computerized and online.

There are ways to let one’s disagreement with governmental actions be known— petitions, telephone calls to Congressmen, discussions and voting and the one that works the best—boycotting or not buying products or services from those you disagree with. The public can voice their opinion without creating an atmosphere of more fear, uncertainty and collateral damage by hacking and shutting down websites. Anonymous may have won this battle but they are amiss the long-term vision to win the war.

Moon Eclipses…Are You a Sky-watcher?



You might not want to get up early but it’s going to be worth it if you live in the western portion of the US or Canada. This Saturday, December 10, 2011, will be the last total lunar eclipse event for the western portion of the North and South American continents until 2014. The eclipsed moon will be lower in the east during or after twilight on the evening of the 10th for the European and African continents. Sky-watchers in Hawaii, Australia, and East Asia, lucky you will see the whole eclipse happen high in a dark sky from start to finish.

Events such as these let us know how small we are in the vast universe. It also reminds us that where you are influences greatly what you see. Just as with the eclipse, some will see it all and some will see in parts and some will not see at all. Where we are in life influences how we see events in our lives. Are these life events opportunities to learn and discover or are they problems keeping us back? See events as opportunities to learn and overcome. Be a sky-watcher and pursue your dreams.

3 Reasons Why We Avoid Video

Video marketing is revolutionary

Video marketing is the revolutionary change in the market today. It is the wave of the future. Contact with clients and customers is important to create cred ibility and trust in your brand or business. One of the biggest hurdles to video marketing is that a lot of people are leary of being recorded on video.I am also one of those who avoid video for marketing for surprisingly one of the reasons mentioned by Steve Garfield.width=480

Three main fears of video

According to the video production expert Steve Garfield there are three main fears behind avoiding video. They are image, sound and memory. People are afraid of how they look on video, how they sound on video and they are also afraid of forgetting what they are going to say on video. Needless to say we must oversome these fears to effectively market our products or brand in this age of social media.

To overcome these fears, Garfield gives three practical steps to take.

Step # 1 – Scale down the size of your camera Equipment: In order to take a person’s mind off he looks on video, do your best to lessen the presence of the “looming” camera by using small equipment such as pocket HD video cameras and natural lighting. Pocket video cameras are small and less intimidating. Soon the person being videoed feels more at ease and will focus more on the conversation with the audience or the inteviewer. An example of an HD pocket camera is the “Flip Minio.”

Step # 2 For someone who doesn’t like the sound of his voice, make practice recordings before one actually shoots the video to be published for online viewing. Record oneself over and over until one develops a comfortable speaking tone and manner. You will feel comfortable like you are speaking to a friend when it is time to make the video.

Step #3 To prevent forgetting, prepare but don’t memorize. Have a bullet of things you want to say. Record each of your points and pause, think about what you want to say next and then just say what you want to get across to your audience just like you are talking to a friend. Your sincerity and honesty will come through. If you make a few mistakes, that’s ok, too because the audience will identify with you as someone just like them, not perfect but real.

Video marketing a must.

In today’s global economy and society saturated by celebrity and social media, video marketing is a must do to survive. The biggest block to engaging in video marketing is the fear of not being accepted by our audience because of how we look, sound and communicate our message. Utilizing these three steps in combination with a great system of video resources such as TalkFusion’s suite of video products is the key to success with video marketing. With so many products such as video email, video conferencing, live broadcasting, video autoresponders, and more, utilizing Garfield’s practical tips and TalkFusion can launch your take off into the video marketing world.

Make Money Online for Beginners–Avoiding Scams, Rip-Offs and Other Headaches

Make Money Online for Beginners–Avoiding Scams, Rip-Offs and Other Headaches


~ A half truth is a whole lie. ~ Yiddish Proverb



(Click on image for free report)

Networking with people from all over the world is great and is full of  promise. We come across many business opportunities and information about home businesses. Since we have that entrepreneurial spirit, we check these many opportunities  and visit websites and say uhmmm..that looks good. Is it for real? We are looking for that pivotal opportunity or information that can help us start a business and make money online. But what we discover is that there are so many “half truths“ out there. To make money online for beginners, we have to always be alert to avoid scams, rip-offs and other headaches.


At the same time, since so many of us have not had success or have been burned by offers and companies that were the opportunities of a lifetime,we are very skeptical. We have been told that we weren’t successful because we just didn’t try hard enough or we haven’t captured the vision. Sometimes this makes us cynical about everyone and everything in network marketing and  we give up on our quest to make money online.. 


What we should remember though is always stay cautious and check out the backgrounds of the opportunities presented to us. I have come across this website during my many researches in the wee hours of the morning that gives information on how to examine a MLM opportunity in respects to its legitimacy and avoid rip-offs and scams. These articles are written by Kevin Thompson, a lawyer and a fellow entrepreneur. Check out his site and articles.


Thanks to the Internet, today, home-based businesses are increasing in numbers.  With a home computer and a great idea, we can market and sell almost anything from the comfort of our homes. When familiarizing ourselves with internet marketing tactics, we may start to feel overwhelmed because there are so many ways to market a website, product, or service online. 


When it comes to starting a small business, there are many other individuals out there who have similar goals and dreams.  Unfortunately, not everyone is able to accomplish their goal of starting their own business or turn their dream into a reality.  Many actually give it a try, but find that their small business ends up costing them much more money than it made them.  They also fall prey to the scammers, and others in the marketing arena without integrity who literally rip-off those “make money online beginners.” And they suffer from lack of direction and information overload which is the number one headache of beginner marketers.


To prevent yourself from being one of those small business owners, ones that often can’t make it and give up; you will want to make sure that you carefully choose which type of small business you want to open. As mentioned above, one has tobe cautious and get information from very reliable sourcesof  well-known successful marketers, or step-by-step guides on how to begin your business from well-known marketers and avoid  scams, rip-offs and headaches of being a beginner marketer.

The Magic of Article Marketing for Your Business

It’s no secret that articles are hot right now.  Articles are a great way to promote products you are selling, helping you build your business and reach a broader audience.  Articles should be full of information, easy to read and understand, and provide readers helpful information towards their topic of interest.  In most cases, articles will include a link to a website, which is designed to sell products or services that relate to the article.
Normally, articles are submitted to websites, article banks, directories, and sometimes used with ezines as well. 

There are many uses for articles. They are one of the best ways to promote products and services online.  Although you can find many different uses for articles, one of the best is with an autoresponder.  If you combine informational articles with an autoresponder, you’ll get results that you can be proud of.  You can do this by setting up each one of your articles with your autoresponder.  You should ensure that each article has its own address, meaning that you’ll need to use an autoresponder that allows you to it.  Once you have an autoresponder that allows you to do this, you should make a master list of every article you have, putting the address of the autoresponder beside of the article title.

After you have organized your articles and distributed them through an autoresponder, other ways to get your words out and distributed over the Internet that in timely and cost effective ways are:  register your articles in article directories, place your articles in bookmarking services and use an automated article submission system. Automation is the best way to get your articles out on other blogs and ezines for more readers to see. It saves you time and automation reaches so many sites at one time. Your articles will attract readers which will drive traffic to your websites and your blogs and driving quality traffic to your website is the key to creating success for your business.
