Amazon.com Review

Just when you thought Garmin had cornered the market on powerful, affordable, and effective wrist-mounted GPS devices, here comes the Forerunner 305. The release of this device is a major achievement from a design and technology perspective. This isn't just marketing-speak; the Forerunner 305 is the most accurate, most reliable wrist-mounted performance and GPS tracking tool we've ever tested. Yes, it's that good. While no device this compact can do everything (yet), the 305 pushes the boundaries of what is possible from something strapped around your wrist. The 305 model includes wireless heartrate monitoring and it can also be connected to Garmin's wireless bicycle speed and cadence sensor.

Gadhafi vows 'long war' after US, allies strike


TRIPOLI, Libya – A defiant Moammar Gadhafi vowed a "long war" after the U.S. and European militaries blasted his forces with airstrikes and over 100 cruise missiles, hitting air defenses and at least two major air bases early Sunday, shaking the Libyan capital with explosions and anti-aircraft fire.

Pressure rising in one reactor at troubled nuclear plant

Tokyo (CNN) -- Even as workers began to see some success in their battle to cool down reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, Japanese officials said Sunday that they would have to release some radioactive gas into the air.

The country's nuclear safety agency said releasing the gas was a necessary step to reduce mounting pressure in reactor No. 3's containment vessel -- the steel and concrete shell that insulates radioactive material inside.

Libyan ruler defiant as airstrikes by coalition forces enter 2nd day

Tripoli, Libya (CNN) -- Fighter jets zoomed across eastern Libya on Sunday as an international military coalition hammered air defense positions near the capital for a second day.

Some Libyans welcomed the American, French and British military forces carrying out air and missile attacks in the first phase of an operation to enforce a no-fly zone.

Gonzaga University: Gonzaga Gets Jimmered in Third-Round

Gonzaga has turned itself into a mid-major school that seems to only play the regular season to try and increase their seeding in the NCAA Tournament. That was not the case this year. Gonzaga went on a nine-game winning streak just to make it into the tournament.

They were rewarded with an eleventh seed and an opening game against St. John's. They also entered the tournament with very little buzz.

Gonzaga then created their own buzz with an impressive and complete 86-71 victory over St. John's.
That victory led many, including yours truly, to predict that they would advance past BYU and cruise into the Sweet 16. Jimmer Fredette had different ideas. Fredette came out a little slow, but he heated as the game went on.  He ended with 34 points, and he was an amazing 7-for-12 from behind the line.

Japan's Fukushima 50: Heroes Who Volunteered to Stay Behind at Japan's Crippled Nuclear Plants

They are the nameless brave men who are working as the last line of defense at Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plants. They stayed behind while everyone else was sent nearly 15 miles away and radiation soars to menacing levels.

There are 200 of them and they work in shifts of 50, earning the inaccurate nickname the Fukushima 50.

No matter what your Clickbank income is right now, you could be making a hell of a lot more with my system.
By the way just to show you that I'm the REAL DEAL, check out what 2 of the best Clickbank Marketers in the world have to say about me...Chris Mcneeney & Michael Rasmussen

"...these techniques work because I apply them myself..."

"Dylan has done a remarkable job simplifying the most important aspects of affiliate promotion. Many other guides waffle for one hundred pages, whereas here there was straight to the point techniques.
And I can confirm that these techniques work because I apply them myself, and yet most don't!
My advice is this: get a hold Clickbank Profit Machine Now, and make sure you listen to what Dylan says. It worked for me, its worked for him. And there's no reason I can think of why it won't work for you too!

"Dylan Loh is the real deal!"

"His screen shots say more than any testimonial ever could. Dylan Loh is the real deal! He's one of the few people who have pushed through the barrier, and achieved a level of success that an average person would think is impossible.

I'm a big believer in ONLY learning from people who are achieving the kind of success that I want to have. If you feel the same way, and you're looking to start your own successful business selling products via Clickbank, then The
Clickbank Profit Machine is the perfect place to start.

Michael Rasmussen
www.MiniSiteProfitsExposed.com
Listen up...
First of all, if you've never heard of Clickbank before and haven't earned a cent online in your entire life, then this isn't for you...
This 6 step approach may be easy as pie to follow but unless you're dedicated, switched on and willing to follow simple instructions, then you're just wasting your time...and mine!
You see, what you're about to find out isn't for some wet behind the ears newbie who faints at the sight of an affiliate link.
You're about to discover secrets that only the cream of affiliate marketing crop knows...
To put this knowledge in a newbies hands would be dangerous, unless you agree to follow the system exactly...
It took time for me to put together this ultimate affiliate marketing package and to just hand it over to some brainless wannabe...well, I'd be insulting myself!

So Who The Heck Am I?


(Mark Joyner & Me)
I'm one of those guys that's been pocketing huge affiliate checks every month while you've been out scrounging around the internet trying to make the minimum $100 a month you need to get an AdSense check.
My name is Dylan Loh and it gives me great pleasure to know that I hold the keys to the future of your internet business...
If you have the guts and are willing to follow simple instructions that'll pay off big for you, I'll reveal the entire system from A to Z in an easy to follow manner... it's so simple only a dimwit could mess it up.
This isn't some system that I just stumbled upon either. This is the result of over two years of fine-tuning and tweaking my affiliate process until it's been boiled down so much, it's a damn near perfect, well-oiled Profit machine...

And Now It's Time To Get Deadly Serious...

This isn't a game, this is a real business and you have to treat it like one by arming yourself with the right tools and knowledge... otherwise you'll be even more broke than you are right now...
You can only lose so much on Adwords before you realise your methods have to change.
It wasn't until some highly sought after "underground" Clickbank secrets were revealed to me that I began to make staggering amount of money everyday - like the $2069.52 I made in a day...(proof below)

Dylan, How Do You Do It?

We'll get to that in a second, but first, here's what one lucky person has to say about my Clickbank Profit Machine:

"...I was blown away"

"I've read good numbers of ebooks about Google Adwords and Clickbank. Books like Google Cash and Google Profits.
But I always felt things weren't really clear. It's like I couldn't wrap my head around the concept or something like that, or it might be I'm a bit thick in the head....lol
Anyway, when I found 'Clickbank Profit Machine' it all became clearer to me how simple and easy it was. I was blown away.
This ebook is written in such a way that you could be up and running in an hour. Yep, you read that right, in one hour.
Dylan makes it so easy to follow along simple baby steps and you could be up and running in no time. If you like things that simple and easy to follow you're going to appreciate these action steps a lot...
..And no I'm not pulling your leg in anyway!
So hurry up and run don't walk..."

Dylan, Show Me The Way
To Massive Clickbank Cash

"...anyone who has the opportunity to watch what you do...is a very lucky individual indeed"

Dylan, you blow me away. I just finished reading "Clickbank Profit Machine." Your Internet marketing knowledge is superior. I cannot believe you're 22 years old! I'm amazed!
I use Clickbank for several digital products of mine and anyone who has the opportunity to watch what you do and learn how you do it - is a very lucky individual indeed.
If I could recommend ONE book for the person who'd like to start an Internet-based business, I would tell them to buy "Clickbank Profit Machine"

Wonderful job Dylan!

Jimmy Sweeney,
President and Founder
www.HONESTeOnline.com

So you see, Clickbank Profit Machine is all you really need to join the ranks of the super affiliates - to make a hefty profit from other people's products...
I hope you can see the logic and potential in that concept!

Getting A Car Is VERY Expensive Where I'm From...

The taxes on getting a car are crazy over here in Singapore and owning a car is one of the most expensive luxuries here...but that doesn't really bother me because Clickbank practically paid my Suzuki Swift 1.2L A for me...
...hey, it's not exactly a Porsche but it still set me back around $24,000 (in USD). Oh and I paid for it in full at one shot. A car is just an example of a small little treat you can buy for yourself and your loved ones when you're making money off Clickbank.

More Proof...

I don't get these once a month, I get these twice a week. And you will be getting these fat juicy checks too - I absolutely guarantee it with my money-back safety net system in place.

Wouldn't it be nice to receive money in the mail instead of bills for a change?

OK, OK Dylan, What's It Gonna Cost?

If you bought something you knew (as long as you took action) had the power to change your life for the better, how much would that be worth to you?
A few thousand dollars?
If it meant you could earn as much each month as you do an entire year in your day job... you'd happily pay $4000-$5000, wouldn't you? How much would you pay to get your Clickbank accounts looking like this...everyday?
But I'm not charging anywhere near that for my course. However, these methods could easily sell for at least $197, maybe $297...
Actually, $197 is the price I was originally going to charge for Clickbank Profit Machine, but since there are so many other marketing products out there competing for what's in your wallet, I thought "Why not be different and give you a break by over-delivering and under charging you?"

"Dylan can show you how to realistically make a full time living on the internet working only a few hours a day"

"As a search engine optimization professional, writer, and internet marketer, I understand how important keywords are. Use the wrong keywords for your site, and it doesn't matter how good your product is. No one will find you.
Dylan Loh understands this very well, and his ebook, "Clickbank Profit Machine", shows you exactly how to find the right keywords you need to promote affiliate products. He also shows you how to choose the right Clickbank products to sell. I've read a lot of products like this one, but none of them explains keyword research and product selection as clearly as this one does.
He makes it too easy.
He will also show you how to quickly and easily build a quality website, and there're no tricks involved at all. This is just solid, common sense information that will help you succeed. Dylan can show you how to realistically make a full time living on the internet working only a few hours a day.
It's not often I get an opportunity to review, or JV, on a product like this. Dylan really did his homework, and he's got the stats to prove it. If you're serious about getting out of the rat race, get this product."

 Excellent results from Edmund after applying the concepts taught...


"...for anyone serious about making money online but don't want to create their own products."

"Hey Dylan,

I had a ClickBank account for quite some time... except that I never logged in. Zero. Nothing. But that was until recently.

I had the privilege of checking out your guide and thought to myself, 'Hmm... I'm probably missing out a lot and leaving lots of money on the table simply by excluding myself from Clickbank. Oh well, I'll give it a shot!'

ClickBank Profit Machine guide is written in layman terms - the way I wanted it because I admit I'm no expert much less familiar with ClickBank.

Your guide has helped seed a strong interest and desire in me to do affiliate marketing - the fun and profitable way... like this:

Health Effect of Radiation Exposure Poisoning (Sickness): Questions and Answers

(Adds comparison with Chernobyl, mechanisms of radiation spread, cesium risk.)

March 15 (Bloomberg) -- The danger of radiation leaks from Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant is rising after explosions at the site caused by Japan’s earthquake and tsunami, Prime Minister Naoto Kan said today.

As of 10:22 a.m. local time, radiation as high as 400 millisieverts was detected at the plant’s No. 3 reactor, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said at a briefing. That’s 20 times the annual limit for nuclear industry employees and uranium miners, according to the World Nuclear Association, a London-based advocate for the nuclear energy industry. A radiation dose of 100 millisieverts a year is the lowest level at which any increase in cancer is evident, the London-based WNA said on its website.

Radiation levels spike at Japanese nuclear plant

Japanese authorities trying to stave off meltdowns at an earthquake-damaged nuclear power plant reported more grim news Tuesday as radiation levels soared following another explosion at an overheating reactor.

The risk of further releases of radioactive material from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant remains "very high," Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan said Tuesday. In addition to an explosion at the No. 2 reactor, the building housing the No. 4 unit -- which had been shut down before Friday's earthquake -- was burning Tuesday morning, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano announced.

Mortgage Rates, Pi Day: Hot Trends



"Mortgage rates" is a trending search topic following the release of Freddie Mac's(FMCC_) weekly survey which showed that the mortgage rates held steady below 5%. The 30-year fixed rate came in at 4.88% on Thursday, up slightly from 4.87% one week earlier, and down from 4.95% a year ago. 

"Pi Day" is a hot search topic because Monday, March 14, is the day that we celebrate the mathematical constant Pi, which is equal to roughly 3.14.

Physicist Larry Shaw created Pi Day in 1989 at the San Francisco Exploratorium. Shaw and his fellow staff members made a tradition of marching around the building and eating fruit pies.

US Aircraft Carrier Ronald Reagan passed through a radioactive cloud from stricken nuclear reactors in Japan

The Pentagon was expected to announce that the aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan, which is sailing in the Pacific, passed through a radioactive cloud from stricken nuclear reactors in Japan, causing crew members on deck to receive a month’s worth of radiation in about an hour, government officials said Sunday.

The officials added that American helicopters flying missions about 60 miles north of the damaged reactors became coated with particulate radiation that had to be washed off.

There was no indication that any of the military personnel had experienced ill effects from the exposure. (Everyone is exposed to a small amount of natural background radiation.)

Fresh blast at Japan nuclear plant (Second blast)

SENDAI, Japan: An explosion rocked an earthquake-hit nuclear plant Monday, as Japan struggled to avert a catastrophic reactor meltdown caused by a quake and tsunami feared to have killed more than 10,000.


At least 11 workers are missing and seven are injured as new explosion rocked Japan's stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex, sending a plume of smoke into the air.

After Monday's blast, Japan's nuclear safety agency said it could not confirm whether or not the hydrogen explosion at the plant's No.3 reactor had led to an uncontrolled leak of radioactivity.

9.0 Japan earthquake shifted Earth on its axis

Scientists in Pasadena say data from the temblor will show how Earth is deformed during massive earthquakes at sites where one plate is sliding under the other, including the U.S. Pacific Northwest.

Friday's earthquake off the eastern coast of Japan was upgraded to a magnitude 9.0 by the Japan Meteorological Agency, the Kyodo News agency reported Sunday.

The agency's scientists probably had access to new data, said U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Susan Hough. "If they've upgraded, I expect USGS might follow suit," she said, adding that it was not unusual for magnitudes to move up or down by 0.1, because large earthquakes can be tricky to measure.

"It's not surgical precision," she said.

Other details are emerging. The quake probably shifted the position of Earth's axis about 6.5 inches, said Richard Gross, a geophysicist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Canada Flintridge, in an e-mail.

The temblor also should have caused Earth to rotate somewhat faster, shortening the length of the day by about 1.8 microseconds, he said.

Another Japan nuclear reactor fails



Another nuclear reactor at the Fukushima No. 1 facility in Japan has lost its emergency cooling capacity, according to the Associated Press, bringing to three the number of reactors at that facility to fall prey to Friday's magnitude 8.9 earthquake and tsunami. Added to failure of three reactors at Fukushima No. 2, the count is now six overall.



So far, the only reactor that seems to pose an immediate risk of widespread danger is one of the two shut-down reactors at Fukushima No. 1, also known as Fukushima Daiichi, which was disabled by an explosion overnight that destroyed the building housing the reactor and the backup cooling system.

However, officials with Tokyo Electric Power Co., which owns the facilities about 150 miles northeast of Tokyo, reported to the International Atomic Energy Agency on Saturday that the reactor containment vessel, which houses the radioactive core, remained intact and that they were pumping seawater into the vessel to cool it.

Tsunami approaches 19 Philippine provinces (Map of Philippines)


A tsunami caused by a magnitude 8.9 earthquake in Japan has entered Philippine territory threatening coastal communities in 19 northeast and eastern provinces.


Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) Director Renato Solidum said the tsunami or series of waves dissipated in strength as it crossed the Pacific towards the Philippines.

He said the waves could rise to up to a meter or less, and would hit Philippine eastern shorelines between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.

"May ugong yan at malakas ang current. Along the shoreline, mayroong current. Kapag may ilog, pumapasok sa ilog," Solidum told reporters.
He added: "The stronger waves are going to Hawaii. We are on the side but we will still be hit. Definitely, the wave is coming here."

Solidum reminded the public to steer clear of the eastern coastline of the country until Phivolcs gives the all-clear. He said the tsunami reached 53 centimeters when it hit Taiwan.

MalacaƱang earlier ordered the mandatory evacuation of residents in coastal areas in 19 provinces expected to be affected by tsunami waves.

The 19 provinces under Tsunami Alert Level 2 are:
  • Cagayan
  • Ilocos Norte
  • Isabela
  • Quezon
  • Aurora
  • Camarines Norte
  • Camarines Sur
  • Albay
  • Catanduanes
  • Sorsogon
  • Northern Samar
  • Eastern Samar
  • Leyte
  • Southern Leyte
  • Surigao del Norte
  • Surigao del Sur
  • Davao Oriental
  • Davao del Sur 

Tsunami warning issued for at least 50 countries after earthquake (Map of Japan, Ring of Fire, Pictures, Videos)

The threat of a tsunami prompted the U.S. National Weather Service to issue a warning for at least 50 countries and territories after an 8.9-magnitude earthquake struck Japan Friday.


The wide-ranging list includes Russia and Central American countries like Guatemala, El Salvador and Costa Rica and the U.S. state of Hawaii. The weather service's bulletin is intended "as advice to government agencies."

The National Weather Service list includes Japan, Russia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Australia, Fiji, Mexico, New Zealand, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras, Chile, Ecuador, Colombia, Peru and the United States.

Numerous Pacific islands, including some U.S. territories, are also on the list.


Friday's 8.9-magnitude temblor in Japan was the largest earthquake since a 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck the Banda Aceh area of Indonesia on Dec. 26, 2004, causing a massive tsunami that killed about 250,000 people in 14 countries and washed away entire communities. The tsunami caused nearly $10 billion in damage and more casualties than any other tsunami in history, according to the United Nations.

The earthquake, initially reported as a 7.8 earthquake, was upgraded to an 8.9 quake.

Here are 'All By Myself' lyrics:

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And making love was just for fun
Those days are gone
Livin' alone
I think of all the friends I've known
When I dial the telephone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself
Anymore

Hard to be sure
Sometimes I feel so insecure
And loves so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself
Anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
All by myself
Anymore

When I was young
I never needed anyone
Making love was just for fun
Those days are gone

All by myself
Don't wanna be
All by myself
Anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live
Oh
Don't wanna live
By myself, by myself
Anymore
By myself
Anymore
Oh
All by myself
Don't wanna live
I never, never, never
Needed anyone
