Dating Site – PoF Fined under Anti-Spam Legislation

The CRTC says the fine was imposed after complaints alleged PlentyOfFish Media Inc. sent e-mails that didn’t have a clearly labelled or easy-to-use unsubscribe alternative.

The apparent violations happened between July 1 and Oct. 8 of last year.

Markus Frind in Vancouver created PlentyOfFish 12 years ago and now has more than one hundred million users around the world. The service sends its users occasional e-mails which highlight people who have similar interests and notify them of new messages from fellow users. The majority of them are sent from a central mail server based of unknown location but with a US IP address.

After they notified PlentyOfFish Media of the investigation, regulators say, the firm upgraded its unsubscribe procedure to obey the laws.

The dating website has additionally agreed to develop a compliance plan, including training for the staff and changes to match with the anti spam requirements.

“This case is a significant reminder to companies that they have to review their unsubscribe mechanics to ensure they’re clearly and conspicuously set out as well as may be readily performed,” said main compliance and enforcement officer Manon Bombardier in a release.

Before this month, the CRTC imposed the primary monetary punishment under the anti-spam law, which came into effect.

The organization has until the CRTC’s ruling to be contested by early April.

Discussion of the Law

 

What is the purpose of the law? Why do we need lawyers? Is there a better system available to society? Has the practice of law been corrupted by the greed motive? These are all vitally important questions that need to be discussed in a frank and open manner. The accessibility of an internet website makes it the perfect tool for hosting such a free ranging discussion on aspects of the law.

What is the Purpose of the Law?

“Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law, for it is the author and source of law; but in our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts.”
[Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 U.S. 356; 6 S.Ct. 1064 (1886)]

The sovereign makes the law in order to protect his, her or their “life liberty and property”. The mechanism for upholding the body of rules known as the law is first the police force. Since part of the law is the right to a trial, lawyers and legal professionals become involved in the law process.

The notion of sovereignty varies from country to country. In England the monarch is the sovereign. In the USA, following the model handed down from the French Revolution ‘the people’ are the sovereign.

Under the American system ‘the people’ therefore have the right to change the law. And yet their elected representatives often seem reluctant to enact the changes that many of the people want. A classic example of this is the legalization of marijuana. The people of California clearly want this but their sovereignty is undermined by the overriding claim of sovereignty held by the federal government.

Why do we need lawyers?

Essentially lawyers are a product of the inaccuracy of language. As more words are used the more there is room for interpretation. Words are a way of modeling reality. The model is not reality. Thus, lawyers are needed to find suitable interpretations for the words of the law.

Secondly, the constitution upholds the right for a man to defend himself if accused by the law. The law is complicated and this right requires lawyers. In civil law the right for redress against a perceived wrong also requires the services of a lawyer.

Finally, as a result of the slippery nature of language, lawyers are needed to write agreements that cannot be easily broken.

Therefore, lawyers are experts in the details of the law as well as the language of the law. The details naturally include the important body of examples set out in precedence.

Is there a better system available to society?

Some countries use trial by jury; in others judges decide the verdict of guilty or not guilty. Either way lawyers are used to expound the opposing points of view of the plaintiff and the defendant. Should we scrap the system of lawyers and let people directly plead their case to a judge? As in the case of King Solomon, a wise man could see clearly to the heart of the matter and reach a just decision, mete out justice.

People are dismayed with the ‘tricks’ lawyers use such as pleading that technical proceedings were not followed correctly. It is commonly perceived that those with lots of money can retain the services of lawyers who are adept at throwing up smokescreens of words by which they can make ‘black’ become ‘white’.

There are clearly problems with the legal system. They might, however, reflect inequalities and problems in society rather than in the theory of the law.

Has the practice of law been corrupted by the greed motive?

The last point naturally leads on to the relationship in America between money and the law. People can become rich from using the law in the USA, more so than in any other country. Not only can some lawyers command high fees for their services but they can also take a commission for damages they recover.

The culture of ‘ambulance chasing’ is seen by many foreign observers as being endemic in the USA. This does seem to be an unfortunate side effect of the sovereign right to pursue a grievance through the legal system. Other countries have basically the same legal system as the USA with little litigation. One definitely has to question the motives of many plaintiffs. Greed undoubtedly is behind many court cases. However, sometimes it is the desire to clear ones name, or the desire to challenge the law itself. Again, we have to look not at the law but at the society that uses the law in cynical and greedy ways.

These are just notes to get the ball rolling. www.nalpexchange.org is about an exchange of opinions connected to the law. It is often quoted that the future is a foreign country; well the law is also a foreign country. This website intends to explore the law in its widest sense and in its most far reaching applications and influences in order to make the law less foreign to us.

The New Age Of Economy

economyIt’s always fun when we hear about a developing economy. As a normal citizen, you would probably say that the economics, is in a new era of development. This year – is a time of expanding possessions, expanding business, expanding debt and expanding waistlines. This is also a time of fantastic and new innovation. If you are a gadget person, you would probably say that you are now living in a developing state. The economy is on its new stage of development. As you can see, US become one of the most renowned states as being a well-developed state. Economics in the US become trending these days. It is inside the news as being one of the wealthiest states when it comes on its economy. There were some suggestions blowing in the wind of the deviations to come. There are small businesses that were tightening their belts, home prices were down, home foreclosures were up, and a lot of baby boomers were beginning to experience health issues. When it comes on expansion, it becomes superfluous and carried a price. Wealth was now redefined through innovative economic times. An example of this is the EU business karnevalsshoppen, which is behind the project tyrolerudklaedning.dk, a website with focus on tyroler kostumer, tyrolertøj and oktoberfest kostumer. 2 years ago they couldn’t lend the money for the project anywhere. Today almost every bank in the area, are asking if they want to borrow money to get the project going.. Tyrolerudklaedning isn’t the only company who has experienced this. Actually a lot of small companies that was having problems getting a loan, a few years ago, are now having a much easier time finding money for their various projects.

We are already aware that United States of America is the world’s biggest national economy. Since from the late 19th century, US has been a leader in technological innovation and scientific research. Phone becomes an important tool when it comes on the mode of communication. When Alexander Graham Bell manifest for the telephone, the economy in the US had changed a lot. A lot of businesses in United States developed because they are able to have increase customers. Direct contact to customers provides the possibility of acquiring more and more customers and this is because of telephone. People can easily contact and make some transactions through it. Since we love entertainment, we usually spend time on watching movie. Way back from the past, people use phonograph to watch movie. Phonograph was developed by Thomas Edison and it is the first long-lasting bulb which is used as movie camera.

Try to see how the economy in the US developed. They have developed different tools. The high frequency power transmission to be used in radio and AC induction motor were also pioneered by Nikola Tesla. These were really a big contribution to the economy. With a lot of invention in United States, it clearly explains how their economy developed. When you study on the economy in the US today, you would find out they are really progressing. America has also highest average household income. If you are going to compare it into other states, you would be amazed on how it turned out like that. United States is the world’s largest manufacturer and leads the world in airplane manufacturing. The manufacturing sector of Unites States had experienced before of substantial job losses but has easily recovered. Even though United States agriculture compromises less than 2% of the economy, it is still a net exporter of food. If you get alarmed on how US have a developing economy, then you can read lots of sources online.

US Recovery Won’t Boost Global Growth

Even though the US market is growing more firmly compared to the International Monetary Fund anticipated in last October’s World Economic Outlook, that acceleration is not going to suffice to improve international economic growth.

Instead, the pickup in the United States emphasizes the undeniable fact that we have been within an age of economic bundles that are divergent, although some boats being lifted by the tide but leaving the rust pails put the underside.

statue-of-liberty-267948_640
Faced with that prospect, Europe and Japan are embarking on substantial monetary policy experiments, fuelling discussion of international “money wars”. To say that isn’t to deny the extent or value of the restoration that is based on American growth. But the increases to the economies in the rest of the planet from other areas shouldn’t be overestimated.

That change is portion of a broader tendency. From 1986 to 2000, as the planet market experienced a huge process each 1 per cent escalation in world GDP was correlated using better rise ensuring that commerce spread growth globally.

But that multiplier (which economists refer to as the “commerce elasticity”) has dropped to around 1.3, helping to clarify why markets go less closely in measure than they formerly did.   Just check out the news in these countries, you can use this tool to access national broadcasters from the USA and Europe like NBC, BBC, ABC etc.

In once, the decrease in the responsiveness of commerce to increase continues to be particularly marked in America, using the commerce elasticity dropping from almost 4 to of the American market.

The result will be to significantly muffle the direct spillover to the planet in general from a more powerful US restoration.  The prognosis for worldwide increase thus depends more heavily on each area’s own attempts — but the prospects are scarcely not worry in the heart as well as in its periphery of the planet market.

Teaching Guitar to Students Online

There is a huge market for students wanting to learn to play guitar and tutors are starting to meet the demand with online video courses and lessons designed to teach playing levels from beginners to advanced. This is an area that is steadily growing and has great potential for growing a persona service business in this line of teaching.

Of course there are already several well established tutoring programs already available online that provide full video and theory course material. But expert tuition is greatly sought after meaning there is plenty of room for more.

So what does creating such a tutoring program entail?

For starters, it is important the creator of the program has detailed specialized knowledge in the field of teaching and of music with particular emphasis on playing the guitar. The program of course could be created by a non-musician and even someone with no teaching skills in which case a qualified person would have to be enlisted to present the video tutorials and provide the necessary material for students.

Many entrepreneurs have created hugely successful businesses in areas they have no personal expertise by bringing on board the necessary people with the right skills and experience to make them work. The same goes for teaching programs whatever the field happens to be.

In the field of online guitar lessons, to make the program sell and become popular with musicians would take a well respected expert guitar player and teacher to present the course material on video. Better still would be to bring on board a popular guitarist that has enjoyed success in the music business and a name that many would know straight away.

Of course getting hold of the right person can be difficult and costly depending on the level of popularity and respect the person holds in their field. However, no business should ever be limited by maybe’s and what if’s and with the right determination and connections, a clever business person could obtain the services of a high profile player to present the material while also using session musicians to assist in providing the technical demonstration material.

Succeeding in this particular business model can be challenging but for the right person with the right attitude and ability, anything is possible. Teaching new and experienced guitarists alike can be highly rewarding especially when the business grows through word of mouth recommendations from students that were highly impressed with the course and learned a lot from it in relation to the price they paid for it.

Teaching goes more and more online

Have you noticed that there are hundreds of different websites where you can take various courses and learn new skills? It coveres everthing from law, how to sew your own tyroler kostume to dancing lessions. You can find online classes for just about anything these days.

Here is an example of a place offering online lessions for money  – http://www.galehusetagf.dk/oktoberfest-tyroler-kostumer/

But is this a good thing or are we shifting to much of the focus from traditional learning to online classes? This is a hard question to answer. Some people don’t do well when sitting together with many other people, they would often gain much more from just sitting alone in front of the computer and learn the stuff without anyone to bother them. These people would learn more with an online teacher instead of sitting in a classroom. Other people are having a hard time concentration unless they are in a group with other people and taking online classes would only make things harder for them.

The quality of these online lessions varie quite a bit. I recently took 2 different classes online, one was a baking class, where you learn to make good tasting Italien bread (a really good class). The other was a sewing class, where we had to sew our own Tyroler kostume for the upcomming Oktoberfest. The first class was actually really good, because it was easy to see how the teacher did it and to follow her recipes. The other class, being a practical class was a bit harder. Sewing Tyroler Kostumer without any real help was actually pretty hard. Of course I could see what the teacher did on the screen, but as soon as something went wrong (and it does quite often in sewing), then it was hard to get the proper help. I guess what I am saying is that some subjects would work really well when it comes to online teaching, other stuff would be best suitet for offline lessons. Personally I think that it’s great that we have both options. I wouldn’t want to take all my classes over the Internet, but I don’t like sitting with 20 people most of the day either. For me the perfect solution would be something like 5 hours in school, and 3 hours with online classes.

Next month I have already planned 3 new online lessions. One is another practical lession, a little bit similar to the one where we had to sew a Tyroler Kostume. The other one is a language class called Italian for beginners (yes, just like the movie) and the final class is a cookie baking class, which will come in handy for christmas.So no regular classes in the traditional classroom style for me this time, but that doesn’t mean that I won’t go back to using those in the next year.

One thing is certain though, we are going to see many more different kinds of online teaching and it will be something that gets more and more integrated into our school system in the future.

Home Education – Is it Really an Alternative?

Multiple varying approaches regarding the way home education ought to be performed are out there. You can find various theories and methods, some of which we’ll be discussing in this article. In the final analysis, however, it’s up to you to decide what techniques will work best with your kids. Sometimes you may want to combine two or more approaches, and come up with a home schooling method of your own.

When you start home schooling, you must set up a schedule. Every family has a routine they normally go through, so that will need to be taken into consideration once the schedule is made out for the home schooling. It is a good idea to be as consistent as possible to the schedule you set up. It can be tempting when home schooling to be casual about time and schedules, since there’s no one supervising you and you can be a little flexible. To make sure your children are able to keep focused, it is important that you have a consistent schedule for individual subjects. It is necessary to have a schedule in place, even if it is changed over time.

Home schooling your kids can be very rewarding for both you and your children; you can provide some things that public schools are unable to. Not only will your children be able to see life in reality, but will also be able to experience places and people in reality. You have the opportunity to give your child a look at the real world when you decide to home school them; instead of sending them off to school where you know little about the curriculum. These lessons will be more defining to you child. Depending on where you live and what you do on a daily basis, will certainly have an impact on what sort or experiences your child may or may not be able to take part in.

There is a lot more flexibility of course than schools and professional teachers are allowed. You can focus on different subjects and use methods which are not practical in a classroom environment for instance. My friend uses the internet a lot to teach her two girls, they are both learning French and watch a lot of French TV online to help. It’s actually quite easy to if you change IP address you can access most of the French and French Canadian TV stations online.

To have an umbrella organization oversee the whole process is what a lot of parents find as the best approach of home schooling. If home schooling is a new experience, this can work well for you. This works really well because your children are at home, you are doing the teaching, and all of the educational materials, subjects and curriculum are supplied by the umbrella organization. If you’re unsure of how to get started or not confident in your ability to create your own curriculum, this may be a solution worth looking into. On the other hand, if you want the maximum amount of independence, the umbrella organization is probably not your best bet. There will be more ways for it to be done, once home schooling becomes more popular. There are other people doing home schooling also, and their experiences might help you a lot, if you will listen. However, when it comes down to it, you should do what you think is best for your own children.

Important Legal Concepts About Professional Joint Ventures

Joint ventures are an exciting and lucrative way to earn nice profits for your online business. Despite their potential, only a small minority of internet marketers take the initiative and seek out joint ventures. No one has to do this, but it’s definitely a way to take an existing business to another level. You can gain access to skills, investment capital or other resources that you might not have on your own. Leverage is an essential principle in the business world, allowing you to benefit from another business’s resources. The fact is, anyone can learn to manage JVs, even if you’ve never created one before.

The success you reach with your joint venture is also going to depend quite a lot on the primary rules of etiquette. Along with being completely professional, you should be polite and friendly as well. Try hard to create a positive impression as best you can but you aren’t in business with them to be friends. Be friendly as much as you can, or as it is called in business: be cordial to your coworkers. Never come across like you are mistrustful of them, and people will tend to trust you when you give them the same courtesy.

It is imperative that you find a way to create a positive business relationship with your fellow JVers. Communicate with them online and promptly, if you’re in a country where there are restrictions then learn how to change ip address online so that you can use tools like Skype. It’s important to do this so that you’ll have an easier time setting up joint ventures in the future. Matching potential partners to your level of contribution is what you can do when looking for JVs. A major corporation, for instance, will probably not want to work with a solo marketer or a small business. Another example would be a midsized business ignoring a smaller business.

This is just the hard facts of the business world and you have to accept it. Serious money can still be made through IM, even though businesses operate like this. Gaining interest from a larger potential partner is possible if you can present a killer idea that will make them money. Although most of it is based upon negotiations, JV opportunities to follow some general guidelines.

Before you start contacting people about your JV, make sure you’re fully prepared. The larger the company, the more challenging it will be of course. Sending emails to other solo entrepreneurs is quite an easy task. With a larger business, though, you first have to get a list of names so you know who you have to get in touch with. Once you have the people you need, then send all of them your JV proposal. It’s best to arrange it so all of them receive your proposal together. Don’t be afraid to do some research, either online or by phone, if you aren’t sure who to approach at the company. You see the results of joint ventures every single day and multiple times. Each business has something to offer. They are linked by what they do together. What is happening is that both businesses promote each other in a positive way. So even if you have a one-person IM marketing business, invest in the tools like these – Buy VPN online, make the right contacts and you can still make this work.

Did the NSA Monitor Your Data?

Over a four year period, the US National Security Agency (NSA) intercepted the online accounts of various foreigners in a highly targeted investigation. Except it wasn’t that targeted at all and an investigation by the Washington Post has suggested that for every one legitimate target the data of 9 innocent individuals was swept up at the same time. These people were both Americans and non-Americans, there was little specific details that could tie these people together, it looks like just random people who got swept up in the investigation.

The surveillance files created consisted of some fairly detailed information, there were names, email addresses and full transcripts of messages for example. The investigation was a success including information about double agents, secret nuclear projects and the identities of some foreign hackers who had broken into US computer networks (although that could mean anything!). However the 90% who were not targeted had no protection against this federal snooping unless they had encrypted their communication using some VPN software.

It could be said that the results justified the intrusions into innocent internet user’s privacy. The tracking is said to have resulted into the capture of a Pakistan bomb maker in 2011,who is suspected to be involved in the Bali 2002 bombing. There were other examples apparently how the report was asked to withold those on the request of the CIA as they may compromise ongoing investigations.

So how many people were affected who were not supposed to be targeted were involved? Well the number is estimated by the Washington Post at approximately 10,000 individuals all who had their data catalogued and recorded. These were real people with real stories and the information read included ‘stories of love and heartbreak, illicit sexual liaisons, mental health issues, political and religious conversions, financial anxieties and disappointed hopes.’

In addition to this, more than 5000 personal photos and pictures were collected. These are of course what we know about, remember this information was only revealed because Edward Snowden provided the Washington Post with the details. This is likely only one of many thousands of investigations taking place across the planet by the NSA and a variety of other National Security Agencies in other countries.

It’s worth thinking about doing something to protect your privacy unless you fancy your personal online details appearing in agency catalogues across the internet. The cost of a simple high speed VPN won’t make you 100% safe from the security agencies, but will stop your data being harvested and appearing there by mistake. These 10,000 people included in the leaked document are likely to be the tip of the iceberg, the wide spread network tapping is designed to harvest the data from millions of transactions so it’s highly likely the real figure is many times higher.
