Third World To Benefit From New Andorra Aid Policy

Helping write off Africa's debts and increasing financial assistance has increased in recent years, with awareness being raised throughout the developed world by Sir Bob Geldof.

The campaign to write off Africa's debts has been led politically by Britain's new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, who as Chacellor of the Exchequer used his position to influence other G8 countries to follow Britain's lead.

But smaller countries have joined in with increased assistance, and notably the world's second smallest country, Monaco, has not only taken her UN responsibilities seriously, but led by Prince Albert has tried to persuade other countries to do the same.

One country that has followed Monaco's advice is fellow European tax haven Andorra.

Fifty years ago Andorra was one of Europe's poorest countries, but now counts among the wealthiest, thanks mainly to her tax haven status, but also her ski industry, which has seen as many as ten millions visitors in a year - pretty impressive for a country with a 70,000 population.

With the same tax benefits as Monaco, Andorra has also seen interest from UK high earners for her tax haven status, and are attracted by the property prices which average a quarter of Monaco's - a shrewd decision for those who are prepared to sacrifice Monaco's image for a tax haven that is well known for her winter sports activities between December and mid April.

Buyers from the UK in particular were out in force during April, May and June, with many spending twice as much on full time homes as the average ski apartment buyer.

One of the first moves Andorra is making is to have more diplomatic relations with countries in Africa, currently they only have them with South Africa, Morocco and Egypt.

But rather than have one ambassador for each country, they will have one to cover two or three countries, depending upon their geographical size and population. And rather than be based in Africa, they will be resident in Andorra, visiting the respective countries when necessary.

Believing that with new technology the new Ambassadors can effectively stay in Andorra will save money, money that can be used towards development rather than on salaries, expenses and embassy buildings.

Andorra has started already with her new development programme, and is helping to finance a safe water project in Mali, with more similar projects to come in the near future.

As well as financial and development aid, Andorra is keen too to encourage cultural links. Earlier this year Andorra played host to Senegal musician Ismael Lo, which was received enthusiastically in Andorra.

Although Andorra is a small European country, she is acknowledging her world responsibilities in a positive way.

Don't let spam bots grab your email address!

Do you want to protect the email address used on your website from being harvested by spambots?

You want to use your email address so that your viewers have a way to contact you if they have any comments or questions. So you need to put a "mailto:" link on your webpage.

But if you put your email address on your webpage, this is an invitation to the robots used by spammers. These bot are programmed with one goal: find email addresses. All they have to do on your website is look in your HTML code -- the code that tells your browser what to put on the page. And they will easily find your address right there in the "mailto" link.

The old-school methods for "hiding" an email address:

* Munging. In this technique, the viewer must type in the address to send an email to the website. That's because real words are used instead of the usual symbols. Example: harold AT aol DOT com

* Encoding. The most common code used is standard ASCII code. Each letter or symbol in the email address is replaced by its equivalent. A simplified address a @ b.com would be coded as:

& #97; & #64; & #98; & #46; & #99; & #111; & #109; ( spaces were put in to prevent the browser from printing the actual address )

One can still use the mailto: link, since the browser recognizes this code, and prints out the actual address on the webpage.

But these methods no longer work.

These methods may have worked when they were first introduced, but one should never underestimate the intelligence of the hackers who program the spambots. There are new bots that can decode both of these email encryption techniques.

These two methods by no means exhaust the possibilities. A Google search on "hide email address" turns up over two million results. Even discounting duplicate methods, there are undoubtedly quite a few ingenious techniques available.

So what can I do now?

Without going through all of the Google entries, I can predict beyond a reasonable doubt that the method I use myself does a better job of protecting your email address than any other. How can I be so sure? Because I doubt that any hacker would have the time or skill to write a bot that would allow him to grab my email address -- it's that well hidden!

My method has the email address in the middle of a javascript, which is in turn located off the webpage itself, in a file that's located in a different folder. So the robot would need to discover both the name of the folder and the name of the file. Yet even though the address is not located anywhere in the HTML code of the page, it DOES appear - almost like magic - on the page itself. But a robot doesn't have eyes to see it!

I hear you saying, "But that's impossible!" Well, it's not. Just visit the website in the paragraph below, and you can find out how it's done.

How Much Money Is Spent On The Game, Users Of Social Networks

Browser Game manages computer genius dearly: he decided to become president of Russia and the virtual spent on the presidential campaign this impressive sum.

The history of the largest virtual world game - World of WarCraft: Sword superpowers son of a wealthy Muscovite purchased for 10 thousand dollars. In this way, many gamers and earn prosizhivaya day at the computer to get the artifact "honest" way, and then sell it to rich impatient player. Particularly active this business mastered in China, where human time is not so expensive. And it is time - the main product in the virtual games.

Game developers have caught the trend, and specially created virtual weapon and a virtual real estate that can not be purchased without having to pay for it is not real money. Little by little, become a virtual game of this industry. Industry, which has already earned, even in Russia.

Foreign experience

Was recently published report Digital Goods Report 2010, compiled by members of the marketing agency VGMarket and development company solutions for the monetization of social networking PlaySpan. It says that about 64% of virtual games make at least one purchase per month. About 9% of the players makes them every day. In total, the study was interviewed 2,221 respondents aged 13-64 years. The survey was conducted in the U.S. and showed that the average American spends on online games 23.7 hours per week. Some have brought this figure up to 50 hours, that is, play more than work.

But a true oasis for the development of online games have become social networks - since Facebook opened up its code to developers in 2007. Average user games in Facebook now spends on them about 50 dollars a year.

Events in this market develop now rapidly: Google, according to some sources, has invested $ 200 million in the largest developer of online games Zynga, Disney bought the company Playdom for $ 763 million (or even earlier - the largest children's online game Club Penguin - for $ 700 million) and the world's largest game publisher Electronic Arts has invested 275 million in the second-largest developer of social games - Playfish.

Yahoo has already signed an agreement with Zynga that will enjoy their gaming services. Only in the first half of 2010, this developer has received proceeds of $ 350 million and in 2011 expects to receive 1 billion revenue. Incidentally, this is exactly Zynga made "farm" of the game the most money in the direction of modern social networks, although they have come up in China.

Most of the average user spends on the game in Facebook ($ 50 per year), less - to turn-MMO (40), the same amount - small fans to buy "casual games".

For comparison: the average player of traditional PC-gaming spending on them only $ 37 a year, and a fan of consoles and even less - $ 20. Women spend more: $ 55 on average, compared with 30 - for men.

In the world of online games played by some 200 million people, and this number is growing rapidly. In total, these people spend to participate in them in 2009 about $ 3 billion

Main, winning in the market model of monetization of social games - shareware. That means you can play them for free but to gain additional opportunities to accelerate processes, etc. - is paying real money.

Most often, the real money is spent on virtual currency, for which buys weapons, ammunition or pigs for the farm - a perfectly normal and sometimes necessary thing.

Russian Virtual

The Russian market of online gaming has grown and is growing without regard to the crisis: an increase in 2009 was 70% compared to 2008. The main directions of growth in the gaming industry: games for social networks and client-side game. Growth gradually slows down browser-based games.

Daily Russian army of gamers in the opinion of experts broke the bar in 4 million.

The fact that the business of selling virtual goods in games in earnest and will work in Russia has proved a Russian company i-Jet Media, the success of which "Chaskor" already written. The company has adapted the Chinese game to Russia, and released "Happy Farmer" to graze on open spaces facebook. In the first year of real revenues of $ 20 million, half goes to the very social network, the rest is divided with a Russian publisher kitayvskim partner.

The fact that the market is large, and growing, evidenced by a fresh scandal: social networks "My World" and "Classmates" refused to cooperate with the game developer Game Insight. The reason - use in games Game Insight software code that is copied from the products Mail.Ru. We are talking about the games "secret society" and "Miracle Farm." Program codes are identical to those used in games, once purchased, the company Mail.ru Astrum. "Classmates" opposed in solidarity. "This decision does not affect our further cooperation with other developers: we are ready to support and promote fair created applications, and hope for a counter-understanding on your part," - said in a statement. Why steal the code - if it actually took place - it is easy to guess: the market is developing rapidly, and soon it will have little room for new entrants, but because everyone is trying to catch as quickly as possible.

On average, real money games in the Russian social networks pay about 10% of active players. "Average ticket" from one such player, which is oriented company i-Jet Media, as reported by "Chaskoru" her partner, Alex Kostarev: "about 100 rubles. And we no longer need. "

The producer company Playnatic Entertainment Ruslan Shelekhov "average check on a player who pays (eg - about a tenth of the total) - depends on the type of game. In the client gaming - Russian player spends an average of $ 50 and sotssetevyh - about $ 6.

Half a billion pounds

Incidentally, the British newspaper The Sun earlier this year conducted a similar study. It is estimated that to non-existent virtual goods inhabitants UK alone spent 500 million pounds a year - is an order of magnitude greater than in Russia. Moreover, the British took into account not only the money from the games, but also from the sale of ordinary "gifts" in social networks. The average purchase is 20 pounds.

A simple example: Playdom - portal, engaging in such online trading, sold pictures of pink Volkswagen Beetle car for a total of 123 thousand pounds just for the day of the day. Only for the purchase of weapons for World of WarCraft only Brits are spending 2 million pounds each month. Among the users of games from Zynga has 56 million people who were doing them a virtual shopping. And that's good - the material needs of people worried about running out.

Residential Real Estate Markets Crumble from the Bottom Up

The real estate market can be visualized as a massive pyramid. There are very few multi-million dollar properties at the top of the pyramid, and a large number of relatively inexpensive entry-level properties forming the base. Like any structure, if the foundation is weakened, the structure may collapse. In the same way, housing markets collapse from the bottom up due to problems with affordability.

The foundation of a residential real estate market is the entry-level buyer. Entry-level buyers are generally young people starting to form new households. When homeowners want to sell their house and move up to a nicer one, someone needs to buy their house. If you follow this chain of move-ups backward, eventually you come to an entry level buyer. If there are no entry level buyers pushing the sequence of move ups, the entire real estate market ceases to function.

The entry level market was initially boosted the moment 100% financing became available because many more people were enabled to purchase; however, it was imperiled at the same time because of the change in savings incentives. This market was subsequently destroyed the moment 100% financing was eliminated because few entry-level buyers had a downpayment and very few people were in the process of saving to get one.

In the past, people would rent and save money until they had the requisite downpayment to acquire a house. The barrier to home ownership was not the ability to make payments; it was having the necessary downpayment money. When downpayment requirements go up, the number of people capable of buying a house declines considerably, particularly for entry-level buyers who must save this money rather than transfer it from a previous sale. Since few potential entry-level buyers were saving money during the rally, sales volumes suffered dramatically in the wake of the bursting real estate bubble.

The weakness in the base of the housing market is going to serve as a drag on sales and pricing for many years to come. The government will likely come up with some artificial stimulus to encourage sales, but once the stimulus wears off, the same underlying problems will resurface. We must rebuild the base of the housing market through savings and stable financing. This will take time because the bad incentives and practices of the Great Housing Bubble.
