That's not how it works anymore. You used to have to be invited to be a partner. Now anyone can be a partner and monetize their videos.
As someone who puts a lot of effort into making videos, thanks a whole bunch for adblocking away the tiny bit of money we get for our labor. I don't bother with doing any techie type twist to a video to appeal to that demo because you all block and the ads so it's worthless to do anything for you. Getting shared on Reddit gives you lots of views and zero money.
I still use yahoo email as my I don't care what happens to it address. Spam filter works well so I haven't seen a need to change.
Once she took over they redid the my yahoo homepage and broke literally everything about it. The sports feed has mostly become functional again but the weather... my god the weather... completely and utterly useless. The widget on the homepage can't keep track of where I am or even what day of the week it is. Everything else is more likely to give you a gateway timeout or other error than actual information.
Wolf PAC is working to get the states to call for a convention to pass an amendment saying that corporations do not have the rights of people and limiting the amount of money that a politician can raise from any person or entity.
Also 18% of the Senate. They know it has to pass, but they also know there's enough votes to pass it without them. So they get to vote no which is what they think will play the best back in their home district. Sometimes they will even vote yes if it's close and then when there's enough to pass they go back and change it to a no once it's safe to do it.
In the same way, Ted Cruz was all about the filibuster when doing so was completely meaningless but tonight when given the opportunity to actually filibuster he instead just whined for a minute and then made a completely meaningless no vote, like the little bitch that he is.
Not a one of them actually cares about the debt or health care (okay, maybe Rand Paul), only their own careers.
You mean the paperbacks that come out long after the hardcover? They make as much as they can off the hardcover first. GRRM's "A Dance with Dragons" came out in July 2011. The paperback still isn't even out yet. If the paperback was released at the same time it would cost much more than it does.
The pricing problem is that eventually the printed version becomes much cheaper than the e-book price which stays artificially high, just like with music. Amazon will often ship you a cd (with free shipping) for less than they'll sell you the mp3s.
