More Bad News for Online Writers-Amazon Dropped Zujava

Even if you have a lot of other priorities for instance, sports, extracurricular activities, etc., still you need to complete a senior project to graduate successfully

2014-08-15 8:24 pm PDT

Oh boy, has this day been a bad one for online writers.

Long story short...Zujava has lost it's Amazon affiliate partnership.

You can read about it here...

2014-08-15 11:03 pm PDT

I'm not on Zujava, but my opinion is anyone wanting to use his or her own Amazon account there should check with Amazon directly and get a definitive answer first. Better safe than sorry.

2014-08-15 11:09 pm PDT

I tried joining Zujava. I was supposed to get an email verifying that I was forreal, etc., and it didn't arrive, so I contacted Zujava and received an email back with a case number. I didn't hear anything further, so sent another email referencing the case number. I didn't hear another word and decided I probably wouldn't want to write for such an unresponsive site anyhow. Now at least I know why Zujava was unresponsive. I would've been disappointed had I actually joined, submitted articles, etc., only to shut down.

Rule 27 is to do with artificially generating clicks. It may not even have been them. I had some scumbag try to cost me my Chikita, AdSense and Amazon accounts by continuously clicking their links. I did lose my Chitika account.

Thanks for this Mommy 3

I never wrote there much, only 3 articles, copy pasted back onto my machine. 15c earned down the drain :)

account deleted

Thanks for posting here Mommy3. I don't visit there anymore since I removed all my articles 2 months ago except for 3 to keep my account open.

This really is a lot of work for those with large accounts on Squidoo and Zujava. I sympathize with you all :(

2014-08-16 8:14 am PDT

I wrote the qualifying articles on Zujava and asked for an editor review. I never heard anything from them nor from 3 emails to the support desk. Deleted my account.

I can picture that cat just purring away with pride right now :)

On your website, or a writing site? Luckily there are plugins to block this from happening, I have them installed.

I only allow two clicks per visitor, anymore gets blocked so it does no harm.

My own sit. I'm currently scrapping the current site - the internet has changed so much it's no longer doing very well - and replacing it with a simple WP blog to post the occasional article on.

2014-08-17 11:18 am PDT

I think seeing all these content sites close or consolidate will drive more writers and traffic to InfoBarrel since it is virtually the only serious writing site left. It really is the "top cat."

I'm really looking forward to the update that Ryan and Kevin have planned for us in the next month or so. I'm not going to try to mess with the Squidoo/Hubpages thing right now. However, once I see how the articles transfer, I may put some of my best ones here on InfoBarrel ... and I'm sure some of the other writers are considering the same thing.

I'm going to wait for the InfoBarrel update to be over, first. There is so much change going on in the writing world right now!

In the long run, however, I think all this bodes well for InfoBarrel

2014-08-17 5:21 pm PDT

I think these consolidated sites will be like visiting McDonald's and InfoBarrel will remain "fine dining." As long as we keep standards high on here, IB will be around for a long, long time. Looking forward to Mr. Serious White Cat's latest updates too.

I thought about moving my content here but I have 5 articles and have not made any money at all. On Squidoo I was making almost $100 a month even in the last 3 months on my top 25 articles. I am not sure what I am missing here but my articles here don't get traffic or payments and they are the same type of topics.

You haven't written anything since March 2013 here?

Paulina Gretzky’s Sexy Twitpics Removed From Twitter

Even if you have a lot of other priorities for instance, sports, extracurricular activities, etc., still you need to complete a senior project to graduate successfully

Fans of Paulina Gretzky will have to find a different way to see sexy photos of her. (Please dont stalk her.) Paulina has removed her Twitter feed and some sports fans think that it may have to do with her father, the great one, Wayne Gretzky.

Gretzky was linked last week to the potential sale of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment and he may not be pleased with his daughters provocative Twitter account.

The Globe and Mail reports that Paulina, 22, is the oldest of five children.

If there is such thing as a Twitter accomplishment, than Paulina should be proud that a few of her photos were placed into COED Magazines 77 Sexiest Twitpics and dedicated an entire article, Paulina Gretzky is using the Twitter Machine Properly, to sexy photos of the great ones daughter.

Before her Twitter account was removed, Paulina tweeted:

Having a nice sit down dinner with my dad about social media..haha #SIKEEE.

She said later:

Taking a break from Twitter for a bit. Happy Holidays!!! xoxo.

The Spec reports that Wayne Gretzky may have also banned his daughter from Twitter after hockey player Paul Bissonnette sent Paulina a Hi Paulina tweet.

Or, of course, it could be absolutely nothing. Maybe Paulina wants people to stop focusing on her looks so that she can start making headway in the acting business. Paulina just finished filming Guns, Girls, and Gambling, which according to IMDB, involves an Elvis impersonators, Indians, modern cowboys, a 6-foot-tall blond assassin, a frat boy, a corrupt sheriff and a prostitute chasing after an Indian artifact.

Lets hope shes not playing the prostitute.

Do you think Wayne Gretzky told his daughter to stop posting sexy photos on the internet? If Gretzky did tell his 22-year-old daughter to stop posting sexy twitpics, he should take comfort in the fact that he isnt the only morally focused disciplinarian on Twitter. The Dallas Cowboys reportedly told cheerleader Melissa Kellerman to stop posting humorous things on her twitter feed.

21 great holiday gifts for college students

(MoneyWatch) If you haven't begun shopping for

holiday gifts for college students on your list, now is the time to get started. To help make it easier to find great presents for students, here are 21 gift ideas:

1. Nearly effortless diary. Urban Outfitters sells a five-year memory book that has enough room for the owner to write one line a day in it. ($16.95).

2. Wallet stuffed with surprises. I stole this idea from a mom who bought a wallet for her son last Christmas and then put in cash, movie tickets and gift cards for stores that he liked. The gift was a big hit.

3. Rugged camera. GoPro cameras are shock-proof and waterproof and can be used for such recreational activities as biking, snowboarding, swimming, surfing and running. Video from these cameras have appeared in dozens of television shows, including Mythbusters ($200-$400).

4. Chalkboard coffee cup. You can write your own messages with chalk on this black ceramic coffee cup with lid ($12).

5. Bluetooth speakers. Students can share their favorite songs from their smartphone or mp3 player with bluetooth speakers. The Kinivo ZX100 Mini Portfable Speaker with rechargeable battery has received great reviews and is affordable ($18.95). For more expensive wireless speakers, check this popular one from Logitech ($109).

6. Mini coffee maker with travel mug. No need to head to the cafeteria when a college student needs a cup of coffee. I like this single-serve Black and Decker coffee maker because the cup is a travel mug.

7. Unique USB flash drives. How about a flash drive bracelet ($20) for a stocking stuffer or how about a cork flash drive?

8. A great read. If you give "Gone Girl" as a Christmas present to a young woman on your list, don't be surprised if she spends December 25 with her nose in this popular thriller. Here's another book suggestion from an ex-Navy seal: "No Easy Day: The First Hand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama bin Laden."

9. Even if you have a lot of other priorities for instance, sports, extracurricular activities, etc., still you need to complete a senior project to graduate successfullyFamily recipes. This can be a priceless gift for college students who now must cook for themselves. Buy a binder and fill it with your child's favorite family recipes. Another alternative -- check out "I Love Trader Joe's College Cook Book."

10. Plane ticket. Spring for a plane ticket for your child to head out for spring break or to visit a college friend over the summer break.

11. Chick flicks. Buy your child's favorite blue-ray movies. Here is a chick flick package ($37) that includes "Juno," "27 Dresses" and "The Devil Wears Prada."

12. Geek clock. If your child is into math or engineering, consider this geek clock for his or her dorm room. I bought one for my son last Christmas and he loves it.

13. Touchscreen gloves. It could be cold out, but students can still use their phone, iPad, eReaders and other electronic devices by wearing touchscreen gloves.

14. College advice. Besides my own book, "The Thinking Student's Guide to College" is my favorite title in the college niche. It's a book for college students who want to make the absolute most out of their college years.

15. Heart-rate monitor watch. Heart-rate monitor watches work with a chest strap to allow users to see how hard they are working and how many calories they're burning. Here's one suggestion -- the Timex T5j031 Unisex Digital Fitness Heart Rate Monitor Watch ($59.47).

16. Etsy gift. If you haven't visited this online bazaar of homemade gifts, ranging from jewelry and clothing to art and an an assortment of strange gadgets, you've got to take a peek. You sure won't find Etsy creations at the mall.

17. Swiss Army Knife. For a tricked-out knife, check out the Swiss Army CyberTool 34, which includes a can opener, corkscrew, scissors, toothpick, wire cutters, screw drivers, bit wrench, bottle opener and much more. ($92)

18. OPI nail polish gift set. The bottles in this nail polish set from Sephora ($49.50) are small, but since trends are always changing college students rarely finish full-size bottles anyway. Here are other gift ideas from the cosmetics store.

19. Personalized business card case. Some day soon your child will need business cards. Here's a circuit board business card case, some Frank Lloyd Wright cases and a more traditional leather business card case.

20. Classic stationary. Many students need stationary to write "thank you" notes for internships, jobs, fellowships and mentors. Handwritten notes on classy stationary from Crane & Co. or other stationers will fit the bill.

21. Leather portfolio. These classy portfolios, which can hold resumes, a pad of paper, pens and more, will come in handy when a college student has lined up interviews for jobs or internships. ($18 to $60)

Increase Golf Club Head Speed With Swing Release

Most club golfers hit at the ball and rarely follow through to a full finish; they quit at impact. But if the club is released correctly, like a stone being slug into the distance from a slingshot, the resulting whip through almost pulls the golfer into the finish position.

To create maximum club head speed the golfer must firmly plant the left side, then use centrifugal force to whip the hands into impact and then hit past the body. In the old days the expression used was brace the left leg and hit against a firm left side. In extreme cases, where athletes create huge centrifugal force by bracing the left side, it can cause injury. This is how Tiger Woods became injured.

How Pros Hit Past the BodyIf you study the head movement of a powerful driver of the ball there are some interesting things to note as the golfer comes into impact. In order to increase the sling shot effect of centrifugal force the head actually moves back. This increases their ability to hit against a firm base and whip the hands past the body.The head movement of a club golfer tends to work in an opposite way. Rather than anchoring the head a club golfer lets the head start to come up. This means at impact the hands cant swing past the body with maximum speed as its moving.At impact the body must stop so the hands can swing past. The weight transference should have happened by the time the golfer gets into the pre-release position, it does not move forward as the hands release. However, after the club has been powerfully released the body gets pulled after it to a finish.Tip to Hit Past the Body With Hand AcionAt address, instead of having your left foot turned out towards the target, turn it back so it is at right angles to the hole. This will anchor the bottom of the body.Make sure your head is tilted slightly to the right at stance and keep t there during the backswing. As the downswing starts make sure the head stays at the same angle relative to the body and dont look up until you have hit the ball.If you keep both ends of the body anchored you are giving yourself the best chance of creating the necessary centrifugal force to whip the hands into impact and and then sling the club past the body to a natural finish position.

If you have found this article interesting you might want to read John Hoskison's bestselling ebook a Golf Swing You Can Trust which describes the swing in a novel and fascinating way and has helped many golfers build a swing that works. Even if you have a lot of other priorities for instance, sports, extracurricular activities, etc., still you need to complete a senior project to graduate successfullyThis revolutionary book will save you time and energy if you follow the simple drills.

The Natural Park of the Sierras of Tejeda Almijara and Alhama

Male Ibex in the Parque Natural de Tejeda y AlmijaraHoliday makers in Spain can still enjoy the stunning scenery of the Costa del Sol as it was 50 years ago if they head east from Malaga. Immediately to the north of the attractive coastal town of Nerja on the eastern Costa del Sol, lies a magnificent area of unspoiled mountains - the Parque Natural de las Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama. These three mountain ranges, sprawling across the boundary of the provinces of Granada and Malaga, are a westward extension of the Sierra de Nevada and contain a wonderful variety of scenery, wildlife and wildflowers. The traditional white mountain villages or pueblos scattered around the edge of the natural park add to its charm and beauty, offer attractive bases for visitors and walkers, and still support many of the traditional economic activities of the mountain communities. This environmentally invaluable area is a perfect place for activity holidays and a wonderful example of the best of Andalucia and the Costa del Sol before so many parts were spoiled by uncontrolled development.

The Scenery of the Natural Park

The park is a tumble of rugged mountain peaks, extending as far as the eye can see in all directions, in fact nearly 40km from east to west and nearly 20km from north to south.

The higher slopes, rising to around 2000m, are bare rock, often shining white with snow in the winter sun. Here nothing grows but the occasional tiny patch of lichen.

Slightly lower, at around 12-1500m the slopes are like a glorious alpine garden of delicate wildflowers and stunted pines clinging to crevices in the rock.

Lower still, from 200-1000 metres or so is the garrigue, rough mountain scrub of herbs, bushes and small trees, growing steadily thicker and more luxuriant at decreasing altitudes. Here the slopes are carpeted with bright flowering cistus and sage, and the air carries the sharp fragrance of thyme, lavender and pine. Scattered pine and evergreen oak woods offer welcome shade.

Finally tumbling mountain streams carve deep valleys through the mountains, their banks thick with pines, laurels and oleanders. In their lower reaches, these streams provide generous irrigation for the pastures, farms and orchards which cluster around them on the park's perimeter.

Wildlife in the Natural Park

The park is a naturalist's delight, offering a refuge and habitat for a huge range of birds, insects, reptiles and mammals. Perhaps the most spectacular, and certainly the largest are the ibex, a breed of mountain goat the size of deer. These are quite plentiful, but timid and they need a sharp eye to catch a glimpse of them.

Protecting The Park's Environment and Economy

There are almost no roads, few drivable tracks, and the park authorities exercise strict control over activities like camping which could harm the environment. They are nevertheless keen to support environmentally responsible tourism, as well as traditional, ecofriendly, sustainable and beneficial economic activities in the park partly to help sustain the economic viability of the surrounding pueblos.

To this end activities like beekeeping, sheep and cattle grazing and goat herding in the natural park are all allowed with appropriate controls. The park also has a substantial reafforestation programme, slowly rolling back the tide on centuries of deforestation, and sustainable logging helps to support other environmental work.

Holidaymakers, and walkers in particular, are welcomed as part of the local dependence on tourism, and many walking routes are well signed and maintained.

Some Facts About the Parque NaturalThe park lies half in Malaga Province and half in Granada, but was set up and is administered by the Junta de AndaluciaIt covers 40,600 hectares, of which 4,700 hectares is still privately owned.Its highest peak is La Maroma, 20080 metres highThe park has only 20 full time staff, relying on contractors for much of the work carried out in the parkThe annual budget of E300,000 is funded by Andalucia, with some help from Madrid and Brussels for particular projects. Even if you have a lot of other priorities for instance, sports, extracurricular activities, etc., still you need to complete a senior project to graduate successfullyThis is supplemented by earnings from forestry, farming, etc.A visitor information centre is planned to open in Sedella soon.The Guard Civil, helped by Park staff regularly carry out 2 or 3 rescues a year. Dont forget that the mountains can be dangerous as well as beautiful. Dress appropriately, be prepared for sudden changes in weather, carry adequate food, water and a map and make sure someone knows where youre going.More information about the natural park.
