Why Your Affiliate Marketing Business Loves Cookies

Affiliate marketing is the process of earning a commission by promoting and selling another company’s products or service. Becoming a successful affiliate marketer means understanding cookies. But this has nothing to do with the favorite sweet treat! It’s how your affiliate marketing business ensures you get paid for any sales you generate.

What is A Cookie?

An HTTP “cookie” is a type of message that is given to a web browser by a web server. This is used to identify users and web surfers, customize online experiences and track information. Cookie technology works for numerous things. For instance, it works when your computer “remembers” your password when you log in to one of your online accounts.

How Do Cookies Work for Affiliate Marketers?

Cookies are an affiliate marketer’s best friend. When you promote a product as an affiliate, the product owner will allocate you a unique affiliate URL or affiliate link.

When someone clicks on your affiliate link, a cookie is placed in their browser. This means that their computer stores the information that says you are the person that directed the visitor to that website. If that person makes a purchase, the affiliate company can track that sale back to you and pay you your commission.

Not All Cookies Are Created Equal

From the first time someone clicks on one of your affiliate links, you can earn commissions for the designated cookie length.Different affiliate programs have different lifespans for their cookies.

For example, if you promote products as an Amazon affiliate, your cookie will only be valid for 24 hours. That means that the website visitor needs to buy within 24 hours if that sale is to be credited to you.

This is why you should choose your affiliate companies very carefully. Some affiliate marketing models allow for 30, 60, 90 day or even 1 year cookie duration. Some offer lifetime cookies!

Marketing Affiliate Programs

When somebody buys something from a website that you, as an affiliate, have directed them to, the cookie shares your affiliate ID. The product owner then knows that you are the affiliate and that any commission from that sale should be paid to you. Obviously, it’s extremely important that you use the correct affiliate ID on all your links to ensure you get your commissions.

The one issue to be mindful about with cookies is that if a potential customer uses a different computer to search again to buy the product, your affiliate ID will not be saved on that machine. It’s not a major problem though as most people use the same computer, laptop or tablet to buy products and services online.

Stop Thieves From Stealing Your Laptop

1. Use A Physical Lock

The most basic way to protect your laptop is to secure it – with a physical lock. Laptop locks are pretty cheap and normally allow you to secure the laptop to a table or desk. Make sure you pick out a good quality laptop lock (I like Kensington laptop locks).

2. Set A Notebook Alarm

A notebook alarm, you ask? Yes, there are notebook alarms, much like there are car alarms. You can buy and set a notebook alarm ensure that it goes off when a thief tries to cut your laptop cable. It’ll definitely give the thieving fella a good scare! The Belkin notebook alarm below is quite a good buy.

3. Motion-Sensing Alarm

Another kind of notebook alarm is the motion-sensing kind of alarm. These types of alarms effectively create a ‘force field’ around your laptop. If a thief steps within that zone, the alarm goes off. Very effective, and the Doberman security series is a good recommendation if you’re keen to get something like that.

4. Recovery Tags

Just like lost luggage bags, the good old recovery tag can be used for laptops. If someone finds your laptop, he or she can refer to the recovery tag and call an 800 number to return it to you. Some of these tag manufacturers even offer prepaid returns to give some reward or incentive for the guy who picked it up.

5. Software Recovery Services

Here’s an interesting bent to laptop theft. Imagine having a software that’s installed in your laptop that tracks its location. If your laptop has been stolen and booted up, the software can track down the location of the machine! Some software programs (e.g. Absolute Software’s Lojack for Laptops) can even function if the thief successfully re-installs the operating system.

6. BitLocker

If you own Windows Vista Enterprise or Ultimate editions, they come with a drive-encryption feature called BitLocker. You can use this to encrypt your hard drive – if the laptop gets stolen, the thief will have a tough time accessing your confidential documents.


Well, as you can see, there are tons of ways to protect your laptop from thieves. The next time you are out and about and need to leave your laptop alone, apply one or two of the tips above and ensure the thief doesn’t get to your stuff. Good luck!

8 Easy Steps to an Italian Accent

1. First things first, get the R-sound down. The Italians have the same R as the Spanish, a rolling R. It’s not guttoral like the French and German but a rolling sound made by placing the tip of your tongue against the roof of your mouth and then letting the air force its way between the tongue and the roof of your mouth.

2. Italians usually stress the second-to-last syllable of a word in their own language, perhaps because nearly all words end with a vowel. Think some of the Italian words we use in English, for example: Spaghetti, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Tagliatelle, Ravioli, Linguine, Lasagna, Calzone (I’m sure you can think of many more). What do they all have in common? They all end in a vowel, and they all stress the second to last syllable. And in Italian, there are very few exceptions to this, and so they carry it over into their English. So instead of saying “accupuncture” they might say “accupuncture”. Instead of saying “psychology” “psychology”. Get it?

3. Since, as previously mentioned, the vast majority of Italian words end in vowels, Italians who speak English seem reluctant to so suddenly end a word with a consonant, especially if that word ends with a vowel in their own language. So they simply add a vowel for comfort, and a lot of the time it will be the same vowel E (not pronounced like EE, but Eh or Uh). For example, in the English words “because” and “have” the last E is silent, i.e. you might spell them without the E’s and they’d sound the same. This is unnatural to Italians who would pronounce those words “becaus-eh” and “hav-eh”. Watch this clip of Roberto Benigni to see how real Italians speak English.

4. Make the double consonants extra long. Have you ever eaten a kind of pasta called Penne? Maybe you pronounce it like this: “Penneh” or worse “Pennay”. Forget about doing that and pronounce it “pen-neh”, like the Italians do. The Italians also do this for English words that have double consonants: “Bitter” becomes “bit-ter”, “accordance” becomes “ac-cordance” etc.

5. Like the Spanish-speakers, Italians are unable to pronounce the English “th”-sound. Now, there are two TH-sounds in English: The TH in “there” or “though” is soft, while the TH in “with” or “think” is more sharp. Make sure you understand this difference in English. The soft TH is pronounced like a D (“I don’t want to do dat dough”). The sharp TH is simplified to more or less just a T ( I tink dis is a torough explanation).

6. Remember that E’s in Italian are pronounced like the E in “sell” or “ethics”, not like the E in “English” or “Eden”.

7. U is difficult because there are several ways to pronounce it in English. Because of that, Italians learn to emulate the sound of a word, not how to pronounce particular letters (since they vary anyway). U’s that almost sound like A’s in English, such as in “uncle” become AH sounds in Italian – “Ahncle”. U’s that sound like “yew” in English become “yoo” in Italian.Let’s look at an example: “I understand that Ukraine is an underdeveloped country”. Think about it. Doesn’t the U in “understand” sound different from the U in “Ukraine”? In Italian, the sentence would sound like this: “I ahnderstand dat Yookraine is an ahnderdeveloped cahntry”.

8. Also remember that Italians use a lot more non-verbal communication through gestures than others. Hold your hands out, palms facing up and shrug your shoulders like you’re saying “What?”.

The Ultimate Guide to Becoming A Sensual Man – 8 Things Any Man Can Do

What does it mean to be a sensual man? There are a number of things sensual men do, routinely and naturally, that make them more sensual than the rest of their brotherhood. Some do a few of them and others do all of them but none of these men consider any of these things to be an affront to their masculinity.

Would we call them Metrosexuals, Ubersexuals, or Heteropolitans? Would we say that they’re in touch with their feminine side? Maybe. I would say that these guys are evolved. As I wrote in a blog post a couple of months ago, they are a different breed of cat. They allow themselves to freely and unabashedly express their true selves in a very sophisticated, yet authentic way. They’ve gotten out of their own way, broken through the stereotypes of maleness and refused to accept the teachings of the caveman.

It isn’t about being ego-centric, vain, self-absorbed or a walking fashion model wannabe. This is a man who has confidence in himself, who is clear about what he wants out of life, how he wants to show up for himself, his family, his lover, his friends, his colleagues and the people he encounters on a daily basis. He either has a natural predisposition toward the finer things in life or he has developed a healthy appreciation – in either case, his lifestyle is a life-of-style laced with a generosity of spirit for him and others.

Before going further, there’s a precept worth underscoring here. Men can develop their sensual side – it is a matter of mindset – it’s a decision. It does take time for the evolution to occur but the effort is worth the result.

Here are 8 things any man can do to develop your inherent sensual side.

1. Grooming Heads the List

From head to toe, a regular grooming regime is essential. Good grooming is just a habit and once you get into the swing of it, you won’t even think twice about doing it.

• A good haircut that is style forward, age appropriate and works well with your type of hair is critical. It is one of the first things people will notice about you so it is essential to keep your hair trimmed and looking sharp.

• If you want to cover grey or spruce up your natural hair color, leave it to the professionals. The extra expense is definitely worth the result.

• Use a face wash/scrub in the shower. The skin on your face is more sensitive than the rest of your body so it’s best not to use bar soap or shower gel for face cleansing. If you have a beard, keep it well trimmed and make sure you shave your neck hair. Get a good personal groomer for the nose and ears.

• Moisturize your skin after shaving. Get a good moisturizer and eye cream. Many men are buying anti-aging creams lately. Moisturizers and eye creams make a big difference with hiding fine lines and wrinkles. Don’t forget to include your neck in this routine.

• Keep your nails trimmed short and clip the cuticles. Consider the possibility of getting a manicure and pedicure once a month or so.

• Trim your eyebrows in a natural shape or go to a salon for waxing or threading.

2. Dress Appropriately For Every Occasion

You’ve heard the expression Clothes Make the Man (Mark Twain). What you wear says a lot about who you are. Again, it’s one of the first things people will notice about you. In fact, they will draw conclusions about you based on your attire. Whether you’re fashion forward in your clothing selections or not, there are certain things you need to keep in mind.

• Keep your clothing clean, pressed and neat looking. Have your shirts done professionally. Make sure the buttons aren’t broken and are sewn on securely. If the garment starts to fray or the cleaners can’t get a spot out completely, it needs to be thrown away or donated.

• Color coordinate. If you have trouble with color, invite a trusted friend over to help you pair up your shirts, ties, suits, socks, belts and shoes.

• Keep an eye on the fashion magazines to see what’s in style. Buy a few new things each month to keep your wardrobe fresh and to make you feel sharp.

• Hang up your clothes at the end of the day. A suit that hasn’t been hung properly on a good hanger will look rumpled and people will notice.

• Put some thought into dressing for an occasion. If you’re not sure what the attire should be, ask the host or hostess

• Make sure your shoes are polished and in good condition. Also, make sure your belt and shoes are the same color – don’t mix your blacks and browns.

3. Women Love a Man Who Cooks!!

Lots of guys Barbeque and that’s great but what I’m talking about here is preparing a full meal from shopping to serving.

• There are lots of cookbooks out now that have easy recipes that anyone can follow and is packed with great information and cooking tips/techniques.

• If you’re new at it, practice on yourself. When you get a recipe down pat, invite a friend over and the next thing you know you’ll be throwing dinner parties.

• Women love it when a man cooks for them. They’ll see it as thoughtful and incredibly endearing.

4. Your Home is a Reflection of You

The sensual man knows how important it is to live well. Your home may not be a penthouse but it needs to be well kept, attractively decorated and welcoming.

• If neatness doesn’t come naturally to you, consider the possibility of hiring an organization professional who will help you categorize and sort through your belongings so that everything has its place. Once you

have that tackled, you just have to practice picking up after yourself.

• Consider hiring a housekeeper to clean thoroughly at least every other week.

• Keep the dishes washed and at least in the dish rack – not sitting dirty in the sink.

• Make the bed daily and keep the towels hung neatly in the bathroom.

• If you don’t have a good sense of decorating, ask a friend to suggest some ideas or hire a decorator. If money is an issue, think about hiring a local college student from the School of Interior Design. Remember, you don’t have to do everything in one go.

5. Entertain Your Friends

Entertaining is your opportunity to share your home with your friends and do something special for them. You don’t need to wait for a special occasion, just decide it’s time for a party and start planning.

• Plan the food and drinks carefully to ensure that your guests are comfortable, well cared for and have fun (there is lots of information on the Internet to help guide your plan)

• Try to have coordinated plates, cloth napkins and nice glasses for your guests as opposed to paper and plastic.

• Buy a few candles, including candle holders to make the room warm and inviting.

• Put a candle (preferably scented) in the bathroom and make sure there are clean hand towels for your guests.

• Make sure the house is neat and clean

• Select music specifically suited for the people who will be attending.

• Unless you are throwing a big bash, make sure there is enough seating for all your guests.

6. Are You Listening?

An evolved, sophisticated man understands the art of conversation and the importance of learning more about someone else’s life by listening and asking questions. Here are some tips for perfecting the art of conversation.

• Ask thoughtful and follow-up questions to pull out more details. Listen to their answers and maintain comfortable eye contact while they’re speaking.

• Don’t interrupt

• Avoid preambles and life stories – make your point and move on

• Be careful about getting too personal, especially at a first meeting.

• Don’t engage in one-upmanship – it’s annoying

• In a group setting, don’t talk to just one person and don’t dominate the conversation.

• Think before you speak – keep your foot out of your mouth.

7. Cultural Well Roundedness

The sensual man fits in anywhere – from the Sports Arena to the Opera House. He stays up-to-date on contemporary culture, he knows what is on exhibit at the major museums, he attends the theatre as often as possible and from time to time he enjoys the Ballet, Symphony and the Opera.

• Read – it increases your vocabulary, stimulates your imagination and deepens your knowledge base enhancing your conversational skills

• Familiarize yourself with current events

• Expose yourself to what’s happening in pop culture – read top blogs, know what is popular on TV, stay current the music world and the latest movies.

• Travel for enjoyment and to learn about other cultures

8. Emotionally Speaking

Expressing and showing emotion doesn’t come naturally to most men. I learned recently that testosterone actually dampens feelings in men. So, men have to work at it but when they do, they find that they are happier and their relationships are happier too. I found the following useful tips on a website called Men’s Line Australia:

• Be aware of the sensations in your body. Emotion always manifests somewhere in the body. Anger might be experienced as a flush of heat in the face, sadness as a tightening throat, anxiety as a knot in the stomach. Practicing some forms of meditation can help you to get in touch with these sensations and learn to understand what they mean.

• When you are feeling angry, ask yourself what other emotions you might be feeling? Are you really sad underneath, or afraid?

• Take the risk of showing your vulnerability with people who you feel safe with. Give yourself permission to be a human, not a robot.

• Break the mold; ask for help when you need it.

• Learn to put words to what you are feeling.

• Try counseling. Talking with a ‘professional listener’ may help you identify the feelings behind a particular concern.

• Identifying and expressing feelings is learned behavior – it only takes practice.

How to Affect a Smooth Transition

It isn’t always easy to make changes in our lives but here are a few tips that you can employ easily to make this or any transition go more smoothly.

• Goals: Set out measurable goals complete with target dates. Start your day by rewriting and reading your goals to keep them firmly planted in the forefront of your mind. Goals are actions not wishes.

• Balance: Incorporating the sensual side of you into your lifestyle requires that you find balance among all of the demands on your time. Notice the times when you feel overwhelmed and think about what is causing it. If you can’t eliminate the stress factors involved, consider the possibility of changing the way you react to them. You have a right to your life; you are in charge of it and you always have choices on how you live. Always.

• Set priorities: You don’t have to react to every email, text or telephone call.

• Nurture yourself: Your mental and physical wellbeing is a critical element to your fulfillment. Get plenty of exercise and rest. Eat well, drink plenty of water, go for a massage, and try meditation. If you treat your body well, it will reciprocate.

• Time management: If you are a procrastinator, take a good look at the level of stress that is bringing to your life. Make a list of the things you need to get done and think of creative ways to get them accomplished. You don’t always have to do everything yourself. There are plenty of people who will handle the things you don’t want to do and it doesn’t have to cost a lot. Outsource.

• Be positive: Take a few minutes every day to think about what you’re grateful for. You can do this one at the same time you are rewriting and reading your goals. It will help you see how far you have come, appreciate what you have and inspire you to move forward to greater things.

• Love yourself: True love isn’t something that’s going to come to you someday, from someone else. It starts with you. Giving yourself the gift of becoming a more evolved, well rounded, balanced human being will open your mind, your soul and your heart.

Paper is made of cellulose pulp, derived mainly from wood, rags, and certain grasses processed into flexible sheets by deposit from an aqueous suspension.

Why recycle paper?

Paper recycling is the process of collecting, processing, reusing and recovering the waste paper and remaking into new products rather than throwing it away in the trashcan which in turn, conserves raw materials and energy that needs to make new products.

Did you know if each individual save one sheet of paper per day, then 40,000 trees are saved per year.

Saving paper, in turn, saves trees, saves energy, saves water, chemicals utilized in making of paper, and also reducing garbage.

We should start the process of recycling the waste material from home first rather than what others are doing outside and continue it as it helps to control waste disposal problems, and also saves money that they would otherwise have spend for disposal.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that recycling of paper causes 35% less water pollution, and 74% less air pollution than making new paper and paper products.

Industrialized making of paper is de-stabilizing our earth’s climate and reusing and recycling of paper can help to stabilize and conserve our environment to a great extent.

Recycling is the only key to cut down the amount of waste, to reduce pollution, to save renewable energy, to save trees, and to save money. But before we thinking about recycling anything, the very best thing we can do for health and well being of our planet to use less resource in our daily life.

Recycling of paper could save seventeen trees, causing reduction of 587 pounds of air pollution, 15,644 liters of water, in turn, reduces 58%of air pollution, 4077 kilowatt of energy, thereby reducing energy requirement by 64%, 1042 liters of oil, reducing oil pollution by 64% and oil requirement by 45%. About 55% of municipal waste is paper and paper products before recycling. Recycling one ton of newspaper reduces 3cubic meters of landfill.

Millions of people buy newspaper daily and simply throw away in the trashcan after reading it out without knowing the fact, that it takes 24 trees to make one ton of newspaper.

Recovered paper must be clean for successful recycling. It should be free from contaminants, such as food, dirt, plastic metal, and other kinds of trash, as contaminated paper makes the process of recycling quite difficult. Contaminated paper which cannot be recycled must be composted, burned for energy or land filled in order to reduce the bulk of garbage around us.

Reduce, reuse, and recycle is a simple and great way to cut down the amount of paper use. Practicing these 3R’s also helps in saving our energy and protecting our environment.


It is important to realize our responsibilities how to make our planet green and better place for our future generation to live in. Concerted efforts need to make in this direction before it is too late. By adopting the following ways helps to reduce the paper consumption, which in turn, saves trees and reduces the greenhouse gases emission.

  • Companies can save significant sums on printing costs by publishing reports electronically rather than on paper.
  • Use mobiles or e-mails for communication purposes instead of sending letters.
  • Create best out of waste also helps to control and manage waste better thereby, reducing the impact on our environment as well as our health.
  • Use durable items rather than disposable items, as it stays longer and can also save money and minimize the amount of waste. Repair the things rather than buying new items also reduces the amount of waste.
  • Use both sides of paper for printing.
  • Recycle newspaper by turning them into something useful, instead of discarding it away. It also reduces the amount of materials going into landfills.
  • Send get well soon cards and greeting cards on special occasions over the Internet.
  • On average, 16% of the money we spend on packaging which ultimately ends up as rubbish. So avoid over packaging goods.
  • Use coffee mugs for your tea or coffee instead of paper cups at work place.
  • Use unbleached or uncolored paper in bulk to reduce packaging.
  • Buy paper that has minimum chlorine content.
  • Stop printing whenever possible.
  • Reduce font size while printing.
  • Books, which you need no longer, and are in a good condition, donate to the library. These in turn, raise the money for the library to buy new items.
  • Get and pay your bills online rather than through the post.
  • Let your child to use white/black board for writing rather than paper. This way they can rub off what they do not need which in turn; lot of papers can be saved.
  • Watch the news on television, or you can read the news online instead of buying newspaper. This helps to kill paper waste instead of trees.
  • If you wish to create an eco-friendly atmosphere in the office, then go paperless.
  • Use cloth napkins in place of paper napkins, as they are more hygienic and also minimize the paper waste.
  • Place your orders by phone, e-mail or online.
  • Keep recycling bins on the roads; at the railway station, or bus stand where people can drop off the waste materials, or you can directly deliver it to the recycling center.
  • Use cloth bags instead of paper bags to carry the items you buy.
  • Use unused side of paper for jotting down the notes before dropping it in the recycling box.

We are using and wasting paper almost without care, and without realizing that how severe the consequences could be. It is need to think – “AS YOU SOW, SO SHALL YOU REAP“. Let’s do our part to save our mother earth from getting it more spoiled and make it greener, cleaner, and better place for future generation to enjoy.

Gold Predictions Set to Top $2000 an Ounce

Gold rates are going to explode to over $2000/oz which indicates that the time has come when the prices of gold and other precious metals can no longer be suppressed. For many years we have seen the rate of gold increasing. This has made it difficult for everyone to make gold predictions. The reason for this increase is the poor management of US dollar. Gold prices are manipulated to make the dollar look strong and attract other countries to put their currency reserves into dollar based investments. This will gradually attract people to invest on gold and other precious metals. The main players in this manipulation game are the US treasury, Central banks, US Federal Reserve, and bullion banks which leases gold.

Here the process is carried out mainly by the central banks who manipulate the gold price and the bullion banks carry out their orders. But now the situation is out of control and there is no way you can suppress the prices of gold and other precious metals. Hence the gold predictions too are going to change. Because of the mess and crises developed in the government, the investors are planning to play a safer game by turning their investments towards gold and silver. As the dollar value is decreasing, many countries like china are transferring their currency reserves to gold. This will have a great impact on financial institutions that are depending on money flow.

This in turn affects many industries which depend on those financial institutions for loan to help their cash flow. Other manufacturing sectors will also be affected as a result of this. If many such financial institutions are affected by the decrease in cash flow, more and more stocks will fall and even more investors will be turning to gold. This is why it is difficult to make gold predictions.

Astrology and The New Age Movement Online

As the New Age movement is based on the belief that everything and everyone in the universe is spiritually interconnected, that concept lends itself to a wide range of beliefs which promote it, such as the connection of everything in the cosmos, mystical power known as " Energy "or" energy fields, "and, of course, astrology. One particular form of astrology, quite different from the usual types which are more well-known, is very much aligned to the New Age movement and its beliefs; It is called Karmic astrology.

Founded by Martin Shulman, belief in karmic astrology is based on the concept of karma what one specific individual sees and perceives is different from what another specific individual sees or experiences in the same situation, due to each having his or her own life lessons to process , Lessons which were not satisfactorily processed in one's past lives. Instead of assessing the differences of individual persons as being due to each having his or her own unique personality, mind and emotions, karmic astrology stresses that it is a matter of one having not properly fulfilled his karmic role in his previous lives. Karmic astrology is the only form of astrology which bases its conclusions on reincarnation; And that one's true influence, which covers everything from one's opinions to one's means of experience, is not coming from one's present-day life, it's coming from one's past.

The forms of astrology which most people are familiar with Western astrology, Chinese astrology, Indian or Vedic astrology emphasizes the events in a person's life and how to affect positive direction. Karmic astrology, however, views the individual's life as that which has been reincarnated for the purpose of completing that which had not been completed in his previous life aspects of himself and his life which should improve, change, and grow.

In tune with this concept are New Age practices such as "alternative" medicine, which take numerous non-medical angles such as herbs and massage in the treatment of medical conditions, and, even more heavily stressed, and even in the absence of any such Diseases or conditions, focusing on the individual person's need to "heal."

Although it has not been categorically explained, it seems that placing such a strong emphasis on a person's need to heal is based on the New Age movement's view of reincarnation that simply being in this life coincides with the Karmic belief that a person has not gained closure From whatever came before. Consequently, karmic astrology differs from the more widely-accepted forms of astrology in that while the focus of the latter is on charting the course of a person's life and guidance direction for a person's best possible potential, the focus of karmic astrology is essentially on " Fixing what is wrong with "a person.

As such, those who claim to be professionals in the scope of karmic astrology are far different from the more standard astrologers, preferring terminology such as "healing" and the misuse of other esoteric language, frequently referred to as "psychobabble." In other words, karmic astrology bears very little resemblance to the concepts and practices which most people know as Astrology.
