Gay Talese on the state of journalism, Iraq and his life

Gay Talese on the state of journalism, Iraq and his life

Saturday, October 27, 2007

Gay Talese wants to go to Iraq. “It so happens there is someone that’s working on such a thing right now for me,” the 75-year-old legendary journalist and author told David Shankbone. “Even if I was on Al-Jazeera with a gun to my head, I wouldn’t be pleading with those bastards! I’d say, ‘Go ahead. Make my day.'”

Few reporters will ever reach the stature of Talese. His 1966 profile of Frank Sinatra, Frank Sinatra Has a Cold, was not only cited by The Economist as the greatest profile of Sinatra ever written, but is considered the greatest of any celebrity profile ever written. In the 70th anniversary issue of Esquire in October 2003, the editors declared the piece the “Best Story Esquire Ever Published.”

Talese helped create and define a new style of literary reporting called New Journalism. Talese himself told National Public Radio he rejects this label (“The term new journalism became very fashionable on college campuses in the 1970s and some of its practitioners tended to be a little loose with the facts. And that’s where I wanted to part company.”)

He is not bothered by the Bancrofts selling The Wall Street Journal—”It’s not like we should lament the passing of some noble dynasty!”—to Rupert Murdoch, but he is bothered by how the press supported and sold the Iraq War to the American people. “The press in Washington got us into this war as much as the people that are controlling it,” said Talese. “They took information that was second-hand information, and they went along with it.” He wants to see the Washington press corp disbanded and sent around the country to get back in touch with the people it covers; that the press should not be so focused on–and in bed with–the federal government.

Augusten Burroughs once said that writers are experience junkies, and Talese fits the bill. Talese–who has been married to Nan Talese (she edited James Frey‘s Million Little Piece) for fifty years–can be found at baseball games in Cuba or the gay bars of Beijing, wanting to see humanity in all its experience.

Pfizer and Microsoft team up against Viagra spam

Pfizer and Microsoft team up against Viagra spam

Sunday, February 13, 2005

New York –”Buy cheap Viagra through us – no prescription required!” Anyone with an active email account will recognize lines like this one. According to some reports, unsolicited advertisements (spam) for Viagra and similar drugs account for one in four spam messages.


Spamming remains one of the biggest problems facing email users today. While users and systems administrators have improved their defenses against unsolicited email, many spammers now insert random words or characters into their letters in order to bypass filters. The Wikipedia article Stopping email abuse provides an overview of the various strategies employed by companies, Internet users and systems administrators to deal with the issue.

Ever since pharmaceutical giant Pfizer promised to cure erectile dysfunction once and for all with its blue pills containing the drug sildenafil citrate, spammers have tried to tap into male anxiety by offering prescription-free sales of unapproved “generic” Viagra and clones such as Cialis soft tabs. Legislation like the U.S. CAN-SPAM act has done little to stem the tide of email advertising the products.

Now Pfizer has entered a pledge with Microsoft Corporation, the world’s largest software company, to address the problem. The joint effort will focus on lawsuits against spammers as well as the companies they advertise. “Pfizer is joining with Microsoft on these actions as part of our shared pledge to reduce the sale of these products and to fight the senders of unsolicited e-mail that overwhelms people’s inboxes,” said Jeff Kindler, executive vice president at Pfizer.

Microsoft has filed civil actions against spammers advertising the websites CanadianPharmacy and E-Pharmacy Direct. Pfizer has filed lawsuits against the two companies, and has taken actions against websites which use the word “Viagra” in their domain names. Sales of controlled drugs from Canadian pharmacies to the United States are illegal, but most drugs sold in Canada have nevertheless undergone testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This is not the case for many of the Viagra clones sold by Internet companies and manufactured in countries like China and India. While it was not clear that CanadianPharmacy was actually shipping drugs from Canada, Pfizer’s general counsel, Beth Levine, claimed that the company filled orders using a call center in Montreal, reported the Toronto Star.

For Microsoft’s part, they allege that the joint effort with Pfizer is part of their “multi-pronged attack on the barrage of spam.” As the creator of the popular email program Outlook, Microsoft has been criticized in the past for the product’s spam filtering process. Recently, Microsoft added anti-spam measures to its popular Exchange server. Exchange 2003 now includes support for accessing so-called real-time block lists, or RTBLs. An RTBL is a list of the IP addresses maintained by a third party; the addresses on the list are those of mailservers thought to have sent spam recently. Exchange 2003 can query the list for each message it receives.

6 Proven Ways To Fill Your Teleseminars

6 Proven Ways to Fill Your Teleseminars


Alicia Forest

Teleseminars are a great way to make some quick cash, or give one of your current offerings a boost in sales. Of course, in order for that to happen, you need to fill them!

Here are 6 ways to fill your teleseminars, each and every time you hold them, even if it’s on the same topic.

1. Your list

The best place from which to fill your teleseminars is your own email list of potential clients and customers.

And just a tip here: People buy when it’s the right time for them, so just because you’ve offered a teleseminar before doesn’t mean that you can’t offer it again – as your list grows, you’ll have a constant flow of new people to offer it to.

2. Use teleseminar listing services

Use whatever listing services are available to you to promote your teleseminars. This is something you can have your virtual assistant do for you as part of your standard marketing procedures for your teleseminars.

YouTube Preview Image

Here are some of the ones that are the most effective at filling classes for teleseminars:

a. An offshoot of Coachville, this listing service is mainly focused on the coaches/consultants/personal development market. It’s $39 to list a single class (with one or two sessions) and you must be a certified teleclass leader to do so.

b. This listing service hosts a mix of both personal and professional offerings. It’s free to list a free class. If you want to list a paid class, they will take a small percentage of the fee.

c. niche announcement services Google for announcement services specific to your niche to find other locations where you can list your teleseminar.

d. Directly targeted at solo professionals, your teleseminar must be of value to that market. As a highly targeted listing service, if you are servicing solo professionals, I highly recommend this service (and please tell Terri Z I sent you :)).

e. Based on Coachville’s model at, this listing service is free. You can have a featured listing (which means you can have a longer description of your class, a photo, and some other features added) for a small fee.

f. Conference call University hosts this listing service, which has some heavy-hitters in the online world listing their teleseminars, and it’s free.

3. Joint venture with a person of note

To implement this strategy, you’ll want to find someone who already has a following in your niche and who has a specialty that complements your niche, and offer to interview them.

You’ll do all the work (set up the bridge line and recording, write the interview questions, etc.) and they get free exposure. You’ll want to ask them to promote the teleseminar to their list and networks as well, which will help you fill it.

Once the teleseminar is over, they can do whatever they want with their copy of the recording. For example, they can use it as another lead-generating tool or create a paid product from it.

4. Offer teleseminars through associations, organizations, and agencies for free

Contact those groups that are comprised of your target market and offer to hold a free teleseminar as a valuable benefit for their members. They help you fill it by promoting it as one of their member benefits. This is a great win-win strategy to use.

5. Post to discussion lists within your niche, with permission and on the appropriate day

Seek out those forums made up of your target market, join, listen in to the conversation and add valuable comments when you can. If the forum allows a short signature line for your posts, point people to your teleseminar there. And if the forum invites promotions on a certain day, take advantage of that by advertising your teleseminar.

6. Google Adwords – for fresh traffic

Running a Google Adwords campaign will bring fresh traffic to your teleseminars. Create a single page website where the only choice your visitor has is to sign up for your teleseminar, and point your Google ad to that page. This is a very effective way to fill teleseminars.

Now you have 6 very effective ways to fill your teleseminar. Put them into action for each class you hold, and you’ll increase the number of registrants for sure.

Report says modernizing and repairing US bridges to cost $140 billion

Report says modernizing and repairing US bridges to cost $140 billion

Monday, July 28, 2008

One out of every four United States bridges needs repairs and updating according to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO). The total estimated cost of repairs is US$140 billion, and will continue to rise if not dealt with immediately, according to the report published by AASHTO.

The necessity for bridge repairs has been just one of the infrastructure needs for which federal assistance has been requested by some state officials. Governor Ed Rendell of Pennsylvania said that, “we need federal intervention, and federal intervention at a big level.”

Additionally, Rendell stated that, “no matter how hard a state applies its efforts and its resources to this problem, it’s never going to make enough of a dent without significantly and radically increased federal help.”

“States are doing their best to improve them, but construction costs are skyrocketing … forcing states to delay needed repairs,” said Pete K. Rahn, head of the Missouri Department of Transportation and AASHTO president to Associated Press. “Without a national commitment to increasing bridge investment, we will see a continuing spiral towards deterioration and, ultimately, bridge closures in order to protect the traveling public.”

AASHTO’s report, titled “Bridging the Gap: Restoring and Rebuilding the Nation’s Bridges”, stated that nearly every one in five bridges is 50-years-old or older. Furthermore, of the 600,000 U.S. bridges, nearly 152,000 (about one in four) need significant repair. “Almost one in four bridges, while safe to travel, is either structurally deficient, in need of repair.” The report notes that the average age of American bridges is 43 years.

The report was released just days prior to the one-year anniversary of the August 1, 2007 I-35W bridge collapse, which resulted in the death of 13 people.

Carrefour’s Sick Business Model

By Jerri Lily

Standing on the streets of Carrefour stores in France, did not feel that the first large French retail business What are the advantages.

Is there a store to see the core competitiveness of the brand is not gullible or chain size, but by the store’s commodity prices, personnel structure, goods and other settings. From asset scale, Carrefour did more than Auchan, Carrefour store goods, but not cheap, such as certain fruit prices higher than competitors, 30% to 40%. High parity line walk the store for the industry is very fatal.

In addition to high prices, Carrefour store staffing is also different. According to incomplete statistics, journalists, typically a store of about 500 staff members, accounting for 20% of the promoters to 30%, while in Carrefour, the ratio is as high as 50%.

These two seemingly irrelevant details reflects the characteristics of Carrefour’s profits – mainly depends on channel fees and cost savings.

Reflect the number of suppliers, many of Carrefour markets in the world to take “charge is king” strategy, although most of the stores also have some slotting allowance, but Carrefour is the largest events and the highest price tag. Carrefour has served as the management staff revealed that, from the profit structure, a single store Carrefour has a considerable proportion of income from fees.

According to some suppliers said the charges in this mode, Carrefour, Wal-Mart-style does not use purchase cheap, low-cost marketing strategies, but do not suppress the purchase price, only for high fees. “Raise a few points of each charge, our gross profit to sag, after all, small businesses, which can withstand high charges? Do not pay will be facing the risk of dismantling the store exit, and can only raise its offer, but Carrefour long as the charges can be, they will improve and as we increase the price quoted. so we know yourself that some of the prices of goods not low in Carrefour, but they use part of the low purchase price of goods at high prices overshadowed strong sales of goods sense the difference. “supplier of a snack food frankly.

Second, many stores Carrefour staff structure is also more rare in the industry, that heavy use of promoters. “Because the promoters of the salary paid by the supplier, and independent stores. But they need help to move cargo, cargo handling, like stores to use the zero-cost labor, so 50% of Carrefour with a high proportion of promoters in order to save costs.” Carrefour was the manager of a store’s one industry sources.

Highly dependent on the fees and the profitability of savings in staff cost way to make Carrefour into a vicious circle, that is, its only to the relatively immature market, Japan, Europe, some countries and regions are all suppliers and labor costs higher strength the market is not only difficult to from suppliers to obtain high slotting allowance, but also not low expenditure of manpower and other costs.

Japan’s retail market still has a feature that is very long and stable supply chain. Is simply a goods to enter the store, you must go through several middleman, these suppliers may operate for decades are like this, who was not allowed to jump, there is no direct supply vendor to speak of. Since each broker are required to increase profits and can not be replaced, thus creating a Carrefour in Japan, there is no advantage at all prices and fees.

So many developed Carrefour retail market in the world are difficult to maintain its fee-based earnings, coupled with less than a certain extent on the scale of the high cost, large shareholders will naturally be more inclined to do this type of stop loss or sell off stores to Operation .

Mode pain

If you say shut shops in Belgium, the withdrawal of Russia, Japan and others are stop-loss behavior, then known as South-East Asia profitable sale of dozens of stores has been valued at some seemingly incomprehensible.

Many people think that this is the major shareholder of Carrefour, after frequent replacement due to capital operation, this may be one thing, but the fundamental mode is a major hidden Carrefour – Basic does not hold property, full range of leasing. In addition to the many rental stores Carrefour renewal after the expiry of the problem exists, there are hidden cost model.

A store’s operating costs can be tens of millions of dollars, I remember a few years ago, we RT-Mart and Carrefour, and compete for a second-tier cities of the property, the last significant advantage of RT-Mart to victory, become the final winner. The reason is simple, RT is the most willing to throwing money at the.

Carrefour is totally typical of the financial figures of foreign retail companies, start-up costs are too high and therefore unacceptable to Carrefour, Carrefour will therefore be more inclined to lease, buy property because of the high initial cost, initial cost of the rental model will be cheaper However, the long term, the rent increase is huge, only you can really cost to hold property and do property preservation and appreciation.

The annual rent increase is that people can not imagine, for example basement rental price per square meter per day from a few years ago, rose to 2.6 yuan to 0.6 yuan, or more than 400%. However, commodity-based hypermarkets operating profit is not high, commodity prices rose much less the rent increase is far greater. Therefore, from the long term, the purchase of the property in fact, cost-effective than leasing, and a more stable and value-added.

The reason I think that Europe is still the core of global competitiveness is better than Carrefour, another important reason is that shop model, the store to buy the property business for some time despite the number of stores may be behind the opponent, but plenty of room for long-term value-added . Auchan, Metro and the same industry tend to buy a property, such as the Metro in China, almost all of their property holding.

Currently more than 100 Carrefour stores in China are basically leasing model, its overseas markets were mostly taken in the rental model, with rents rising, long-term earnings pressure to Carrefour.

The industry believes that in the Chinese market, as Carrefour also has no small scale, so it can be diluted to balance other costs, but not too large in scale in Southeast Asia or other overseas markets, it is difficult to resolve the long-term problem in this way. Therefore, even if a loss is still not present, but the rents rose too high for some time in the future will significantly affect the profit, once the largest shareholder of Carrefour in the region find long-term “additional investment” too high, then select “Enough is enough” development, such as stores leave off, or sale of stores to return the funds.

2011 BRIT Awards highlights

2011 BRIT Awards highlights

Friday, February 18, 2011

On Tuesday, the 2011 BRIT Awards were presented from The O2 Arena in London, England. This is the first time that the awards ceremony has been hosted from this venue; previously, the regular location for the show was the Earls Court Exhibition Centre, which is also located in London.

The BRIT Awards, presented by the British Phonographic Industry, is an annual ceremony that awards music artists for excellence in music. The BRIT Awards started in 1980; this year’s event is the 31st BRIT Awards. ITV1 broadcasted this year’s programme from 2000-2200 UTC, with British actor and presenter James Corden hosting it.

The ITV1 programme contained performances from various artists, many of which had been nominated for BRIT Awards. The performers and the performances are displayed below but are not in chronological order. They are as follows:

  • Take That – Kidz
  • Adele – Someone Like You
  • Rihanna – Only Girl (In the World) / S&M / What’s My Name?
  • Mumford & Sons – Timshel
  • Plan B – She Said / Prayin’
  • Tinie Tempah, Eric Turner and Labrinth – Written in the Stars / Miami 2 Ibiza / Pass Out
  • Arcade Fire – Ready To Start
  • Cee Lo Green and Paloma Faith – Forget You

British rapper Tinie Tempah was nominated for most awards than any other artist, with ‘Best British Album’ and ‘Best British Male’ included amongst his four nominations. He was given two BRIT awards – one for ‘Best British Single’, which was Pass Out, and the second for ‘Best British Breakthrough Act’. Upon receiving what would turn out to be his first award of two, Tinie Tempah proclaimed: “I want to big up God and my family for sticking by me when times are hard.” Canadian indie rock group Arcade Fire were also successful in achieving two BRIT Awards, one for ‘Best International Group’ and the other for ‘Best International Album’; their album is entitled The Suburbs.

Dermot O’Leary presented an award to British pop group Take That for ‘Best British Group’, the first time the group have ever achieved such an award. While the group received the award, member Mark Owen looked at Robbie Williams, who had recently rejoined Take That, and said: “Can I say thanks for coming back mate. Appreciate it. It’s a real pleasure for the five of us to be up here.” The group had a second nomination for ‘Best British Album’ but were unsuccessful in winning the award.

Cee Lo Green, a member of the group Gnarls Barkley, received one BRIT Award for ‘Best International Male’. In his acceptance speech, he commented: “I’m so excited. Thank you so much for this honour. Such a pleasant surprise.” Cee Lo was also nominated for ‘Best International Album’ but failed to achieve the award.

Roger Daltrey, lead singer of English rock group The Who, humourously commented that “[i]t’s good to see the British music industry still has enough money for a good booze up” before giving the award for ‘Best British Album’ to Mumford & Sons for their album, entitled Sigh No More. Marcus Mumford, of the group, said that “[t]his is very bizarre, very strange. Thank you very much indeed. We are very honoured, very humbled.”

Mark Ronson and Ellie Goulding awarded the ‘Critics’ Choice’ to English singer-songwriter Jessie J. Backstage, Jessie J – who is currently at number one in the UK Singles Chart with her song Price Tag, featuring American rapper B.o.B – remarked that “[p]op stands for popular. I want to be a pop icon and take Britain across the world.”

Having expressed thanks to various family members, friends, his record labels and the people he had worked with, he concluded his speech with the line: “Thank you, everybody. That’s all.”

Dravs was nominated for his work in relation to Arcade Fire album The Suburbs and Mumford & Sons album Sigh No More. “You could hear it in the lyrics and in the commitment in the demos,” he commented. “I really wanted to get involved and see if I could help make the record.”

During the BRIT Awards programme on Tuesday, Cheryl Cole presented the ‘Best International Female’, which was won by Rihanna. The Barbadian pop and R&B singer exclaimed during her acceptance speech: “Britain, I love you! This is so exciting. I want to thank everybody at my label, Mercury […] all my fans here. You guys are the best! I love you so much. This is…this is big. It doesn’t get much bigger than the BRITs, so I love you guys. Thank you so much. This means a lot. I’m the only girl in the world!”

The award for ‘Best International Breakthrough Act’ was given to Justin Bieber, a Canadian pop music / R&B singer. Upon accepting the award, Bieber commented: “I want to thank all my fans over here. You guys are amazing. I want to thank the label over here”. Laura Marling was subsequently awarded ‘Best British Female’. After being presented with the award by Boy George, Marling said: “Thank you. My name’s Laura and there you go, mum. That’s for you and thank you very much to Adam and Laura and everyone at Virgin. This is really weird.”
