I was blog hopping yesterday when I noticed my outstanding BHO green header on Red's blog. Wow, feels like Christmas! Green and red to match my happy mood.

Thanks Red for this wonderful blog review. Cheers!

Macys promotional codes are nothing new to Macys customers and online shoppers. Many companies use promotional codes as a means of marketing online. Companies such as Macys frequently offer these codes through affiliates for online shoppers. In many cases, shoppers get promotional codes through sales or advertising emails. Some people actually sign up with stores and online sites requesting that they be sent these offers. This strategy serves many purposes, such as:

• It increases sales
• It improves website hits for the companies whose products they promote
• It increases website traffic for the affiliate websites offering the promotional codes
• It generates income for affiliates
• It enables consumers to save while spending

What Macys Promotional Codes Offer

Macys offers some good deals to customers who use their promotional codes. Online shoppers using Macys promotional codes can save on shipping, get discounts on selected items, and have a set dollar value taken off others. Other offers are only valid after spending a certain amount of money.

Promotional codes are normally applied at checkout, after selected items are placed in a virtual shopping cart. Like other codes, Macys promotional codes tend to have a set expiration date. Sometimes the offer lasts until stock is finished. One word of advice for shoppers using promotional codes: always read the fine print. Aside from the code itself, there will be information on what makes the offer valid and what doesn't.

Buyers should be aware that some stores do not exchange or refund payments made on items purchased using redeemable promotional codes. Nonetheless, the value and savings gained from using Macys promotional codes are worth exploring. Just make sure to use the codes for items you want or plan to give as gifts.

Buying a house in a tough economy can be difficult for some residents of the United States to do, but with a home mortgage credit the purchase can become just a little bit easier. Anyone looking to buy a home that is new to them, whether it is brand new construction or used, should sit down and meet with a mortgage expert prior to making a purchase. The mortgage expert will be able to outline all of the buyer's options when it comes to acquiring and paying for a mortgage as well as financing a mortgage. Home mortgage credit depends on the shape that the buyer's personal credit is in at the time of applying for a mortgage.

A home mortgage credit can be refinanced after a couple of years if the homeowner needs to do so in order to lower their monthly payments, but there are some factors involved before this can happen. There are three main things needed; the state the property is owned in, the type of mortgage the owner currently holds, and the condition their credit is in at the time of refinancing. If all three of these items match up, then the owner will be able to refinance their home mortgage credit.

A prospective homeowner should always shop around for the best home mortgage credit rates on the market prior to choosing the one they feel is best for them. This means performing a thorough search on the Internet for rates, going to a bank to find out about their rates, visiting other banks to find out rates and talking with mortgage companies about their rates. A home mortgage credit does not need to be purchased from the bank the homeowner has an account at despite what some people might think. Mortgages can be purchased from almost any entity these days as long as the homeowner has good credit.

Online shopping has become one of the most popular and convenient ways to shop. You can find virtually anything, from household goods to clothing to toys to even bigger items like appliances or electronics. It allows shoppers to find the best deals from the comfort and convenience of their own home, and most sites make returns and shipping easy and fast.

Another great thing about online shopping is the wide range of coupon codes that are available to save you money on online purchases. In an effort to entice buyers to shop online, many sites offer special savings and offers that are exclusive to online shopping and only require you to enter coupon codes when checking out.

So, where is the best place to find coupon codes? Offers.com provides access to dozens of coupon codes for a wide range of websites selling things like clothes, shoes, books, and much more. Offers.com takes you directly to the most current top coupons online. You can search through categories like Best Offers, This Week's Top Ten, Most Recent, or by expiration date. Many of these coupon codes are also online exclusives that shoppers won't find in stores or even on other sites.

The list of coupon codes also features a link to other coupon codes and offers from the same store. So, let's say that you find a coupon code offer for $10 off a particular item from a store that you like. Even if you don't want that item, you can click on a link that shows you other offers from the site. You should find coupon codes for other items that you want to buy. This is a great feature that allows you to find multiple coupon codes for the same site in one location.

For those who love a good bargain and love to shop online, coupon codes are a must.

A company's sales and marketing force is a crucial tool for getting the word out about the company and helping it grow while also retaining current customers. Many companies have decided that sales force automation will help make their sales processes more efficient and will maximize customer satisfaction.

How DoesSales Force Automation Work?
Sales force automation systems are software programs or websites that help sales teams carefully track the progress of the sale or potential sale that they are working on. Sales people record their progress in the sales force automation system from start to finish. For example, sales professionals make calls and record the date and outcome of the calls. They note in the system any follow-up that is required.

What Are the Benefits of Sales Force Automation?
Sales force automation benefits the sales staff by helping them to be more organized and better track their customers and the progress of the sale. These systems can help with order management. It becomes easier to identify and target the customers who are the most beneficial to the company with sales force automation programs. They also keep all information in an easily accessible program.

The customers and potential customers benefit from sales force automation because they are less likely to be irritated or inundated with repeat sales calls. They will get better service from a sales team that's more organized.

What Types of Sales Force Automation Exist?
Omniture Genesis offers a sales force automation product that can assist companies with their sales and marketing efforts. This specific tool works to automate the company's digital marketing tools, such as applications and data, in one easily accessed location.

Together, the sales team and the sales force automation systems work to gain customer loyalty by making the most of their relationship. It's a recipe for success with any business that wants to see strong sales.

Conservation is now a necessity, not a simple request. The environment needs to be protected, not abused. And no company shall deny their role within the world of carbon emissions. Liability is no longer hidden. The John Hardy company understands this and seeks to rectify it. Championing a cause beyond jewels, the brand is no longer content with the minimum. Instead they wish to reinvent not only their image, but corners of the globe itself.

In 2006 the Sustainable Advertising Project began. Through this John Hardy created a way to defend against greenhouse gases and their complications: the company shall return what it takes. This philosophy may seem to be an easy one but it is no less effective because of that. Due to the brand’s unusual usage of bamboo (a tribute to their Asian influences), acres are now being planted in reverence. The islands of Bali and Nusa Penida will receive this reward and the effects will be soon felt.

John Hardy: Customers Unite

There is more to this than simply providing bamboo to barren acres, however. The efforts rely instead on consumers. Each piece purchased within the collection will offer donations to the cause. It’s through the funding and support of John Hardy's clients that miles can now be restored.

And all of that support has led to even more attempts at environmental consciousness. Since the program began, efforts have been made to stifle carbon by reducing plane travel. Meetings have been conducted wirelessly and paper usage has been cut by over 70 percent. Such gestures help to offer balance and a promise of hope. John Hardy is not simply a jewelry brand. It is instead a new beginning and customers can follow their lead.

Dante's Inferno is the anime adaptation of the game with the same name, both developed by Visceral Games. It is originally based on the first part of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, "The Inferno". Just like in the game, it tells the story of Dante, a war-worn christian crusader and his quest to save the soul of his betrothed, Beatrice, who was abducted by Lucifer. The story starts with Dante returning home and discovering that his family slaughtered, along with his wife, Beatrice. As he held the body of Beatrice in his arms and watched her soul goes up to heaven, Lucifer suddenly appeared and wrenched Beatrice's soul to be taken to hell instead. Enraged, Dante ran in pursuit of Lucifer in an attempt to save Beatrice, until he reached the gates of hell where he met Virgil, the poet who then became his guide in his quest. Similar to the book, Dante journeyed through the seven circles of Hell, overcoming several obstacles like the judge of the dead, King Minos, the great worm, Cerberus.

In addition to this, he even battled his corrupted and monstrous father, Alighiero and those closest to him like Francesco, Beatrice's brother and ultimately, Lucifer himself. The animation is rendered by a number of renowned animation studios such as Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell), Dong Woo (Akazukin Cha-Cha), Film Roman( Garfield and Friends) and more. Because of this, the character designs as well as the backgrounds are inconsistent. There would be scenarios wherein Dante was portrayed as a long-haired crusader while there would be parts where he wears a helm. Though the adaptation is not that bad, it is not that impressive as well and people familiar with the video game would likely prefer playing the game since there are numerous scenes omitted from the animation which are available in the video game. A good example of this is when Dante ventures off in the circle of Lust. In the game, he battles the guardian of the circle who is Cleopatra and her lover Anthony but in the animation, they are totally removed. In addition, the circle lacks the detail compared to the game in itself. A possible reason for this may be because of the sensitivity of the scenarios since the actual design of the Circle of Lust based on the game contains graphic animation as well as genitals of both genders present as background dressings. Moreover, Minos' illustration was half-done compared to how he appears in the game. In the game, he is able to maintain a regal appearance despite his monstrous form. Though he was portrayed the same way as the one in the animation, the rendering was not done with the same quality as the one which appears in the game. Other than this, the pacing of the story is a bit off in comparison to how the story was narrated in the game. It's like watching a video game without you needing to press any buttons to hack the enemies. In fact, the PS3 game rendition appears to have more depth when in comes to the story compared to the animation. But then again, this may be due to lack of screening time since the animation was not made to be a series but rather, to be a one-sitting movie which is limited. The best compliment that I could probably say about it is how impressive they were able to adapt the Divine Comedy's description of hell, and how each circle of hell looks like and the story itself. It is unique in every aspect.

Overall, as mentioned above, Dante's Inferno is not a total let down. It just so happens that the rendition and attention it deserves was not given to it. It would have been more promising if the character designs were consistent and if the animation was serialized rather than released as a movie.

When you are building an online marketing campaign, you must spend some time on search analytics if you want the campaign to be successful. Search analytics is a very important step in building an online brand because it will give you a starting point for any gaps that you can fulfill in online searches and any weaknesses in the campaigns of your competitors that you can use to your advantage.

At this point, you may be wondering what exactly search analytics is and if it is really necessary before you begin marketing your company online. Put simply, search analytics shows what online users are searching for, what search terms produce too many results and any gaps that exist between search demand and search results. For example, with search analytics, you can discover which search terms are gaining in popularity and use this to your advantage to drive more traffic to your site.

Optimizing your site for search engines is called search engine optimization. This is a process that strategically uses key words to improve your search engine rankings. There is a great deal of work that goes into this process so it is a good idea to hire an optimization company to assist with your online marketing efforts if you truly want your site to be a success. Search analytics will be used by any company you hire to ensure that your online marketing campaign is conducted in a way that produces the best results and search engine ranking.

The days of simply publishing a website and making this the extent of your online marketing efforts are over. If you truly want your company to be successful, you must have a multi-tiered online marketing campaign that exceeds the efforts of your competitors. This marketing campaign begins with search analytics.

I might get hooked to scrap booking again after getting these cool stuff from 'Salad Bowl of Thoughts'. Yay! Got this a day ago, just too busy to post it and upload the images.

Thanks A-Sy! Hehe! *wink*

I just found out that Adgitize is in the process of changing their forum. I was about to post something there regarding my missed advertiser's points when I stumbled upon this message at http://www.adgitize.com/blog/forum/

Though this is inconvenient for me, it still makes me feel better knowing that I can contact them through the Contact Us link. I haven't heard anything from them yet after sending my inquiries.

Got a reply!
Hi Liezl,

We will review your points and correct and update earnings as appropriate. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

Most of you might noticed that I have been moderating comments for weeks now. It is because I have been seeing a lot of spam comments on my posts. Interestingly, one of the most spammed posts is the one entitled "Cruising Together".

Of course it pissed me off. I'm so busy with lots of things and deleting such comments is consuming my precious time. So I decided to MODERATE all comments for this blog. Comments are very much appreciated here but if they are SPAM, there'll be no way for them to reach the public. Another good thing about moderating comments is that I won't miss any of them. So rest assured that all of your inquiries will be answered and more attention will be paid to your comments.

That's it! Thank you for the usual support.

We have the freedom of speech, but use it accordingly. Speak if you must, but not to defame others. It's saddening to hear derogatory remarks from a foreign news icon. Thanks to Ariel Driz for speaking in behalf of the Filipinos. You can read his response below but the actual post and podcast is on ChannelAPA.
To: Adam Carolla, CBS Radio

Dear Mr. Carolla,

On behalf of the Filipino and Filipino American community, we are writing with disappointment and disdain in your choice to verbally slander Manny Pacquiao, the Philippines, and the Filipino American community. Your words were unnecessary, hurtful, and erroneous. When you insinuate that Filipinos “pray to chicken bones” or that the Philippines only has “Manny Pacquiao and sex stores,” you fail to recognize the millions of Filipinos and Filipino Americans who have contributed significantly to the United States and to the entire world. We do not pray to chicken bones. We are Catholic, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, and other religious and non-religious people who are civilized, educated, and successful. We are not sex workers. We are doctors, nurses, teachers, professors, artists, community organizers, writers, politicians, journalists, engineers, activists, fashion designers, accountants, entrepreneurs, researchers, social workers, public health advocates, athletes, chefs, and post office workers. We have taken care of you in the hospital. We have taken care of your children. We have taken care of your elderly. We have worked hard to achieve our American Dream, and you have no right to denigrate us like this, merely to get attention.

This is not the first time you have gotten into trouble for your racist remarks. You’ve called Native Hawaiians “the world’s dumbest people,” “retarded,” and “in-bred.” You’ve later insulted a Korean American actor by mouthing “ching-chong, ching-chong.” And now you apparently are trying to gain attention by insulting Filipinos and the Filipino American community. You apologized to the Asian American community before, but it seems that you have not yet learned your lesson.

It seems that time and time again, “celebrities” and “comedians” feel that it is acceptable to degrade Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in public forums. You would never have said such things about African Americans, as you recognize that your career would plummet, as exemplified by the falls of Michael Richards and Don Imus. What you need to recognize is that racial hate and ignorance about any group is wrong and unjust. And what you also need to recognize is that your hate towards Asian Americans, the fastest growing racial minority group in the United States, can also lead to your career’s demise too.

You say that the Philippines has “nothing better going on for it” because of their support for Manny Pacquiao. What you fail to recognize is that the Filipino American community has strength in our unity and our ability to mobilize, particularly when we are blatantly mistreated or belittled by people in the public eye. There are an estimated 3 million Filipino Americans in the United States, with millions of other Filipinos across the diaspora. We are projected to become the largest Asian American population in the United States, and we have allegiances with many communities of color. We will boycott your show and all of your parent companies unless you offer a public apology to Manny Pacquiao, the people of the Philippines, and the Filipino American community.

I have been dressing up my browser with Firefox Personas and now I am changing it to Easter Birds! So cute and timely!

Advance Happy Easter Sunday!

Congratulations to all the 2010 graduates! It’s time to face the new world of reality. Job hunting, parting time with close friends, practicing full independence, and other sort of things you can think off outside the university premises.

When looking for a job, consider your interest and field of specialization. Though, it can’t be denied that remuneration package and future working environment can greatly affect one’s decision. It’s not a bad thing as long as it can guarantee your happiness and leads you to a promising career path.

With the rising call center industry, we must be thankful that it can accommodate more job-seekers from different fields of education. The past years have been more challenging to fresh graduates when job applications were done on-site and there were limited job opportunities. There were no online interviews yet. Among the few options are just office works and industrial jobs. The good thing about the latter is that there are some companies who are advocates of compensation on a no win no fee basis. Though accidents are not good in every sense of the word, the fact  that they are inevitable really requires this type of injury compensation. This may not guarantee industrial safety, but still, it sets your life at ease. No worries, no heavy obligations on both sides.
