No one can argue that internet marketing is really one of the fastest rising online industries today. Almost every opportunity online to make money is related in one way or another to internet marketing, so you can pretty much say that it is the biggest thing online as of recently.

Although, this may sound like a very good thing for a lot of people, it can also pose threats to the majority of the public, especially those who have just started making their way to cashing in on the web. Why? This is because with the almost unlimited number of people involved in the scene, there are also high chances that they are only scamming others.

The niqab flickered briefly for Sheema Khan as the logical next step in her effort to rediscover Islam.

The Muslim face covering, which reveals only the eyes, appealed to the then Harvard grad student as a symbol of piety and fidelity to the religion increasingly asserting itself in her life.

But Khan’s experiment with the niqab lasted only a few hours and she settled instead on the hijab.

“I tried it and I hated it,” says the author of “Of Hockey and Hijab: Reflections of a Canadian Muslim Woman.”

“I couldn’t breathe.”

Yet her own unwillingness to don the niqab hasn’t stopped her from offering a biting critique of the Quebec government’s proposed law that would prevent women wearing the covering from receiving government services.

“It’s abominable,” Khan says. “I can’t believe this is Canada.” Continue reading

Multi-level marketing is a business model in which a parent company markets their products directly to consumers by a means of direct selling and relationship marketing.

So many times, a distributor will begin a new network marketing business, and have no clue where to start. After their “warm market” runs out, they typically get stuck, wondering how to grow their business. The following are some multi-level marketing tips that a distributor can use to grow their business:

• Use Your Target Market, Not Your Warm Market

The Target Market is hidden in your “cold market”, and you can target your market in a number of different ways. If you want to start cheap, you can purchase a lead list, of people that have demonstrated interest in your type of product or service. You can usually purchase or rent these lists for less than $0.07 per name, and if just starting out, can be a very effective way to build your business. The downside is that it will take time to sort through and find those that are truly interested in what you have.

Belgium is known as the home of surrealism and it is certainly living up to its reputation.

 The proposal to ban the wearing of any kind of “full veil” in public approved by the House of Representatives should now in theory go to the Senate. But Belgium does not have a government at the moment so the procedure will begin again after elections next month.

So why did the vote take place at all? Because enough politicians wanted to be seen to approve this largely symbolic measure because of the impact they hope it will have on public opinion, especially a few weeks before elections.

 The proposal was initiated by the Liberals (centre right) and received backing from every political party, because it gave the kind of signal that they believe Belgian people expect. The general population is becoming increasingly anxious – if not downright hostile – to an expanding Muslim community and the supposed growth of fundamentalism. These fears are fed by headlines predicting that Brussels will be a “Muslim city” by 2030 or alleging that state schools are being corrupted by Islamic fundamentalism.

 This surge in hostility is in turn driving Belgium’s Muslims towards introverted ways of asserting their identity, and to a religious revival that can be observed by the numbers of females wearing head scarves. The hijab is a common sight on Belgian streets, but burkas and niqabs are seldom observed, another sign of the pointlessness of the ban. Belgian politicians have been arguing among themselves for a long time about banning Islamic headscarves from schools and other public buildings.

 Progressive forces are themselves sharply divided among those who favour the French model (banning all public expressions of religion and safeguarding the neutrality of public offices and servants) and those who prefer the Anglo-Saxon model of religious tolerance and would like to see a reasonable accommodation, of the kind we see in Canada.

 A real debate about the kind of model that multicultural Belgium should promote has yet to take place. Unfortunately, populist moves such as this week’s vote do nothing to build the atmosphere of trust among our different communities in which such a debate could take place.
