Your Privacy on the Web, The positives you don’t know.

Privacy on the web.png

Ashton Deroy Writes: So I watched the The Terrifying Cost of “Free” Websites, by College Humor .

I have to say this a bluntly common designed entertainment video, that this content  deliberately instills a technophobic reaction in the general ignorant masses. What is wrong with this video? It misleads, it does not include protection facts, prominent solutions for less invasive advertising & tools being created for product users. 

Misleading 

Most of Facebook targeting is done by pages you like, Statuses you post & searches you made. In fact jokingly after posting gay statuses you can see the advertisements on Facebook’s side ads change to LGBT targeted ads. 

Advertisers are not going to Facebook & Google buying target customers. In fact sometimes all advertisers are doing is putting out the message and learning more about their user that maybe they didn’t know. For example Toronto-Businessphere is a English speaking Web Publishing business, that did not realize at first that our specific benefit was our language services in delivering a marketing product.

Facebook encourages protection of your Facebook passwords and accounts from employers.

Posted by Facebook and Privacy on Friday, March 23, 2012

From a modern day stand point this is good that Facebook has made this communication because in the modern day employers are granted way too much allowance in regards to your personal communications. They are now able to monitor what you say publicly, gag you from publishing anything about the company & companies honestly would like access to employee private communications. However Facebook stands on the side against your employer being able to have full control over their employee relationships & privacy.

Do not sell personal data.png

Google does not sell your personal profile. They sell your data algorithms to advertisers who might be relevant to your interest. This is a common practice by Publishers prior to Google. Google just revolutionized the process. Sadly what people think is Google has a picture of you and they are selling you to people. Which is not the reality of what they are doing. 

After analyzing the services, you can actually see Google is protecting their proprietary information at a much higher level than Facebook. 

Prominent solutions for less invasive Marketing

Okay after doing some research I can say maybe we do take too much information from users on tools like Google & Facebook. The general feeling for users of those tools can even sometime be that they are getting too much of their proprietary information out voluntarily. 

Banner ads – These are a bit of an older method for digital marketing but publishing ads on related websites, common interest websites of their customers. Make sure these ads are set up by the website creator though & not an automated system as that still uses data mining tools to target ad campaigns to specific users based on inputted or mined data that the user submits. 

Video Marketing – Creating video content and growing your community around that on YouTube & WordPress.

Point of sale print outs -This can include flyers, Coupons, business cards & signage. All of which can help boost your sales on location and are not invasive ways of marketing. Refer to Vista Print

.com setup – This is all the user data I get from my .com here on the Businessphere. None of it was involuntarily obtained &  It has no user specific interests. Rather it allows me to see my highest rated content, where click through come from and where the website has the most hits geographically. Data.png

Tools from Search Engines & Social media 

Social media customer service

Social media based customer service is going to make the contact center world better for the workers & the customers. No longer will you have to sit on a telephone to wait for your resolution. You will be able to get your resolution on your time with Social media based customer service.

Not sure which cab company to use? Or what $700 PC performs the best at its price point? You are going to Google it for the information to see which is the highest rated product in the price point.

Collaborative technology.png

Google Drive offers data to back up files, share leads and collaborate on research or creative work. This software has basically made Microsoft obsolete from work from home marketers, publishers, researchers & shop owners. This will probably be the staple software of the future work from home people.

Marijuana, not the smoke-able hero we think it is.

 

Marijuana, not the smoke-able hero we think it is. (1).png

We underestimate the effects of smoking Marijuana. 

Ashton Deroy writes:Is smoking marijuana really healthy for your? Or is it the same evil as cigarette smoking?  It goes without saying if you smoke anything it emits CO2 which is bad for your lungs. “You could have someone with grade 8 science explain this to you.” 

Since becoming a valid medical treatment pharmaceutical companies have been trying to find preferred ways of delivering THC to the blood stream without inhalation or smoking it. 

Some social cultural problems with marijuana are what most people say about Marijuana “It works better than a controlled narcotic.” Then in the same breathe they will say “Oh and it is not addictive.” That makes no sense, however you can’t rely on the community of toque wearing stoners to provide you with your daily fix of common sense.” 

Community dialogue

This is the dialogue I had with a smoker Mariah Elise who believed if she smoked it could improve her lung function. However there are produced medical publications provided prove otherwise. 

“Smoking marijuana is associated with chronic bronchitis symptoms and large airway inflammation.” Joshi, Manish, et al. “Marijuana and Lung Diseases.”

“Not all medicinal marijuana is created equal. That’s what some experts are saying as they warn about the health risks and curtailed effectiveness associated with smoking medicine.” – GEORDON OMAND, The Canadian Press

http://www.health.harvard.edu/mind-and-mood/medical-marijuana-and-the-mind

“Inhalation is the fastest way to deliver THC to the bloodstream, which is why patients may prefer smoking an herbal preparation. But while this method of drug delivery works fast, smoking marijuana exposes the lungs to multiple chemicals and poses many of the same respiratory health risks as smoking cigarettes.” Health.Harvard

 Do I think Marijuana inhalation, smoking is good for you?

No, marijuana smoking is as bad or worse than smoking cigarettes. It causes a psychoactive reaction, it numbs pain with more strength than a narcotic.

While smoking marijuana may be a better alternative to a narcotic for benefits of appetite increase, mood changing and the inability to have a fatal overdose. It looks like oral consumption is the safest way to consume marijuana.

Should Toronto Privatize Waste collection?

Should Toronto Privatize Waste Collection- .png

City staff recommend looking into privatizing garbage collection in Scarborough – Toronto Star`

Click the blue above to read more on this pressing issue!  

Dear Toronto City Council: 

Are you guys stupid? It is plain and simple that Toronto should not privatize waste collection. However it seems like I may need to go into deeper detail as to why! 

My three reasons are participation in private waste collection, Participation in waste collection will go down, this will impact this the environment and lastly what this activity will do to our economy. 

First of all when you privatize waste collection you are going to lower participation. Why is participation going to go down? We are going to drive heavy costs for garbage collection rather than taking it from city taxes. Then we are going to see people not pay for stuff like garbage tags, garbage removal or cleaning. It is a simple business principle. When you put cost where none was you lower the demand for the service. 

Secondly people stop participating in removing waste. What do you think this does to our environment? When people stop disposing of their garbage properly the streets become littered, property values go down. Then when property goes down the economy of Toronto is affected negatively. 

How is the economy going to go down with a street full of litter? Do you think wealthy people like to go to garbage filled streets to buy goods or services? The answer is no. So that results in people avoiding certain areas, people losing geographic foot traffic and businesses losing once positive atmospheres. 

Is privatizing waste collection going to lower taxes? Absolutely it will lower taxes. Is it worth the impact on the environment, community and economy? No, on the market we do not need the government to retract right now. As the government is one of our most useful institutions in Canada we need them to keep expanding their reach within our communities. Until institutions can deliver the effective programs the government has.

To conclude,

John Tory

Do not privatize our waste collection! If cutbacks are the goals, do something else!

Dating with Diana

dating-with-diana

This article was written and expressed solely for the basis of entertainment.

Today on the Toronto-Businessphere Diana Skye is going to answer some questions around first dates, online dating and what you should allow to happen. Diana Skye is in a long term relationship with her boyfriend Josh and she couldn’t be happier.

 

  1. “If I meet a guy off TindR and he didn’t look like his picture what should I do?” – Anonymous

 

People usually want to make the best impression on dating sites. They might use their best photo instead of one of their everyday self. Stick around and see how the date goes. He may not be as stunning IRL, but maybe he has a great personality. That being said, if it’s obvious he used another person’s photo that is a problem. It’s almost like stealing somebody’s identity. Call him out on his cat fishing. He will probably have some crazy excuse. Either way, he is definitely not worth your time.

 

  1. “I met a guy for a date and I suggested a StarBucks coffee. He said it was too expensive and pitched Tim Hortons. Is it right to dump him?” – Anonymous

Not necessarily. He could be having financial struggles, which does not mean he’s not a great guy. It would be petty to lose interest just because of coffee preferences. Try to reach a compromise. Perhaps a small local coffee shop would work well for both of you? If all else fails, Tim Hortons does have good smoothies.

  1. “A random guy on the street asked me for a blowjob. I was freaked out, what I should do in the future?” – Ashton Deroy

Turn him down politely, but firmly. Then get as far away from him as possible. If he keeps following you and won’t take no for an answer, try to get to a crowded place. I once lost a creepy follower in a mall this way. If you feel unsafe, contact the police once you get rid of him. You might not be his only target.

 

  1. “A guy on a date said something racist… What should I do next?” – Anonymous

Sometimes people don’t realize their comments could be offensive to others. If you aren’t okay with it, say something. For example, he might have said something offensive about black people. You can respond with something like “Do you really think they are all like that?” If he says yes, tell him it’s just a stereotype and you don’t believe in those. Maybe he will rethink doing it again. If he is rude to you about it, then he is definitely not the right person.

Ad Narrative: It is not that hard to get started, just send us an email! 


Who wouldn’t be freaked out? You are in Toronto’s worst neighborhood and your date is discussing illegal and dangerous activities. Do you really want a boyfriend who is into those things? If the answer is no, get the hell out of there and do not call him back. If you are completely okay with dating a gun-loving drug addict, I would suggest re-evaluating your life choices. It might be thrilling now, but it will not be worth getting hurt (or worse) in the future.
