At first glance, online marketplaces like Amazon and eBay seem to be a creation of mutual benefit. Ecommerce store owners gain increased exposure for their products, and the marketplaces gain an expanded product range without having to increase inventory.

On closer inspection, the mutual benefits remain, but the reality is more nuanced. Should you expand your presence beyond your online store and start selling your products on Amazon and eBay?

The answer is… it depends. A marketplace strategy may be a boon for some retailers and a bust for others. There are a lot of variables that need to be taken into consideration, including the type of products you sell, the intensity of competition in your category, marketplace fees and restrictions, and so on.

espionage

China’s military sent a signal to Secretary of Defense Robert Gates when it unveiled its new J-20 stealth fighter rolling up and down a runway just before his visit. We do not actually know how stealthy the J-20 is, but aviation experts were generally surprised that China was able to develop this advanced an aircraft as quickly as it did. Some immediately suspected that China had illicitly acquired U.S. technology to help accelerate its own programs. The Chinese, of course, deny this.

The denial counts for very little. We cannot expect a black and white case where close examination of the J-20 would reveal parts stamped “made in USA” on the aircraft. But we can compile a set of suggestive incidents that point to China’s use of U.S. technology.

This is not the first time China has moved more rapidly in building advanced weaponry. It took the United States and the Soviet Union several decades to achieve reductions in the noise emitted by their nuclear submarines, while China achieved similar results in roughly a half the time. Since China does not show similar stellar performance in efforts to develop other advanced technologies—in fact, it tends to be somewhat slower—it is reasonable to ask if China was able to acquire the necessary submarine technologies, which neither the United States nor the Russians would share, through espionage or other illicit means.

home security network

Getting the external security camera consign have a better thought because you should know exactly who came to your house when you were not in. Security cameras are right now available to make available low – cost surveillance systems, and not only used in mansions and more shopping malls. When people install security cameras risk of becoming victims of robberies in the cells decreases with a huge scare to leave the likely culprits. For homeowners who live in areas where there have been several robberies, with the use of security cameras can be of assistance.

In the past, monitoring systems used to cost a fortune, but today they are available in electronic retail department stores at low prices. It costs about one hundred dollars to get a waterproof camera with a night – vision monitor, which is quite reasonable. In addition, obtaining security camera can also help in reducing insurance rates you pay, and this could be bare useful, as it covers the cost of purchasing security cameras.

as this is not a post that is promoting something it seems to me that is reliable because it doesn’t say something about BUY NOW! or something like that.

Climate Change

The climate is changes in a very negative way, the world is being contaminated and we dont now how the future will stand. The air contamination is changing the climate, the rain fall, the desirtification, the nutrients of the soil and other stuff.

Climate change is a fundamental threat to sustainable development and the fight against poverty. The World Bank Group is concerned that without bold action now, the warming planet threatens to put prosperity out of reach of millions and roll back decades of development.

online political campaing

A campaign benefits immensely if most individual donations, even the big ones, come in online rather than as paper checks. First, money collected via credit cards is available instantly, allowing a candidate to take immediate advantage of an overnight surge of income. Plus, online donation details automatically end up in a database, simplifying accounting and reporting. By contrast, physical checks present a logistical burden, since each has to be processed individually whether it’s collected at a fundraising dinner or arrives in the mail.

As the Obama campaign found, online fundraising also lets a campaign tap the vast number of politically interested people who can’t donate hundreds or thousands of dollars at time but whose smaller donations can add up to a princely sum. Obama’s grassroots donors tended to send relatively small amounts repeatedly, which in turn shows why a small-donor list is such a valuable resource — it’s the gift that keeps on giving, quite literally. Unlike traditional big donors who often reach their quota for a given candidate with a single check,small donors can contribute again and again, providing a financial consistency that’s useful in a short campaign and priceless in a long one.

for me this link is reliable because it shows a real life example that names the actual president of the US and its resultst

Resource Depletion

The use of non-renewable resources for the manufacturing of components it is a very effective way of manufactruring the components. But the big problem is the impact that the non-renewable resources have on the enviroment and the bio diversity. It is a big issue the way in which we are using the resources because this are scarce. We should be able to start using renewable resources so as to take care of the planet.

Many of the technologies we use every day consume a lot more resources and power than they need to, and using and manufacturing them can create a mess.
