    Affiliate Marketing

    Affiliate Marketing

    When people hear about affiliate marketing, they initially think of an online version of businesses such as Avon or Mary Kay: you receive a product and sell it for commission. Over the years, affiliate marketing became popular and many’s main source of income. As Nicola Smith puts it in her article "Affiliate Marketing: A Good Deal”, “affiliate marketing has long been established as one of the most effective ways of driving sales online, with anticipated sales reaching around 4.6 billion last year, according to eConsultancy". Researching into it dispels initial conceptions - it is not just about directly selling products. It also requires many other skills, such as being able to connect with people and possessing writing skills that were captivating but honest. The best part was that there were millions of markets to choose from. You could essentially make money from writing about anything you liked - whether it was art or fitness. In 2017, affiliate marketing continues to generate revenue for many people. Since it is a concept that is constantly developing, there are certain trends that affiliates need to consider to not only continue making money, but to grow their market - condensing your niche, constantly researching new products and services, mobile technology, and creating your own product or service to compliment your market.

Such an algorithm can recognize a disguised person with an accuracy of 79 percent.

    Old Worlds of Nature  vs. The Future of Trash and Technology

    Old Worlds of Nature vs. The Future of Trash and Technology

    The definition of nature is constantly changing. The word itself conjures up many different feelings, thoughts, and images. It cannot be pinned down into one simple definition. Critical theorist, Raymond Williams, once wrote about nature as “the most complex word in the language(p. 216).” Nature is often defined through our re-creations of it, because most of us live in cities. Some of these re-creations come in the form of parks. These spaces are an invented form of nature, reflecting our ideal versions of it. The city park acts as a reminder in all the urban chaos that we can still preserve nature. This all sounds reasonable, except that the park is not a preservation, it is a creation, just like nature itself. The same thing goes for wilderness conservations, with their ties to a settler past and frontier mythology. We continue to assume there is some kind of nature out there, and that we are truly connected to it. There are representations of that idea everywhere:

    Investing Smarter, Together with Rapunzl

    We share advice on everything from our diets to our clothing, but why do we keep our investment decisions to ourselves? Buying clothes can be costly, as well as finding the perfect organic diet to accent your gym membership and smoothie obsession. But investing actually makes you money rather than forcing you to use it. So why are humans inclined to listen to friends when it comes to spending money but are hesitant when it comes to earning it?

    Technology in Education

    The range of electronic devices that can be used for teaching and learning has blossomed dramatically since the start of the twenty-first century. Touchscreen machines such as smartphones and tablet computers can fulfill a wide variety of educational functions. For example, a science student can physically manipulate a 3-D model of an atom or molecule displayed on their tablet with a series of gestures, learning about the structure of each. A student in a music class can play the notes of a classical composition on his or her tablet by using it as a full piano, with visuals and sound to match.
