Marketing, Website, Birds & More

-- Quote of the Day -- 

“The three furies of marketing – the first one is Humor, which is a distraction; Sex is a huge tool in marketing, and it is a matter of undermining our sexual adequacy our sense of attractiveness, and our gender identity. …Fear is the third one; fear is a huge motivator and marketers use it all the time. - So what happens to a whole society when they are constantly having these bullets (the furies) fired at them every 30 seconds? The society gets anxious, depressed, non-functional… we will react instead of responding intelligently. The problem with modern marketing is it has become trauma… we are traumatized by marketing, with devastating results.”

~ Lynn Serafinn

Today's quote was excerpted from the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio show titled: Is Marketing Making Us Ill?

This resource was sent our way from Candace Williams:

The Stat-My-Web website provides detailed stats about websites like - when it was created, where is it hosted, how much is it worth and where does it rank on the web. These detailed stats are displayed in both graphical and text formats. Besides this , there are also over 15 tools which help in specific analysis of the website. All this is provided for free in a clean and professional layout.

And this next resource is for bird lovers:

Dyer Island Conservation Trust (DICT)

The DICT helps protect the threatened African penguins on one of their important breeding islands.  You can help save the African penguins on Dyer Island by purchasing nesting boxes or contributing to the rehabilitation of oiled and injured birds there.
