The other day I was reading several posts on an MLM message board, allegedly designed to discuss Scams- one of which, of course, was about the network marketing scam. After reading several pages of posts, I decided that I had had enough with the trash-talking about how all MLMs or Network Marketing companies are scams.
Actually, less than 10% of network marketing companies are truly “scams”. The reason why this industry has such a bad reputation, I believe, is because of the marketing methods used by many of the industry’s leaders. What methods? The hotel meeting, the sizzle call, the glossy brochure or video that highlights people making six-figures plus, driving around in Ferraris, standing in front of their mansion. Telling people that all they need to do is talk to everyone they know about the business, take them to a hotel meeting to hear a guy talk about his millions, and that’s it. They talk about super duper bonuses when you get 1,000 people into the business. They tell you about how they got the super bonus in just 2 months. And if you get busy, you will too.
The truth is…this type of marketing doesn’t work out in the long run for a lot of people. I believe that the marketing style I mentioned is one of the main reasons why there is a 97% attrition rate in network marketing. Why? This form of marketing primarily appeals to people who: (1) are in a desperate financial situation or (2) want to make a quick buck.
Most likely, neither one will stay in the business for more than a year, here’s why.
Type (1) People in a Desperate Financial Situation:
Network Marketing is a business not a job. Businesses take money to grow. I don’t care what anyone else …
Keystone Resort, Colorado is home to world class skiing terrain, incredible dining, affordable cat skiing, three mountain peaks and it is one of the few resorts in Colorado to offer night skiing, making for one of the longest ski days around, offering visitors a huge bang for their buck. It is also home to Kidtopia- a festival where kids can have a blast, participating in fun activities geared just for them, including visiting and playing in a huge snow fort at the top of the Mountain! Not to mention the countless other winter activities to enjoy such as snow tubing, ice skating, fine dining, sleigh rides, live music, festivals, and more!
So you’ve made the decision to visit Keystone this winter, now comes the hard part, where to stay? Keystone is a small town, about 3 miles in length sitting in a valley at the bottom of the mountain. The mountain itself is made up of three separate peaks that line up from North to South; Dercum, North Peak, and the Outback, each offering it’s own unique terrain and features. Dercum Mountain is the furthest peak North and it’s front side offers the only two access points to the entire mountain, River Run and Mountain House.
Of the two base areas, River Run is the newer of the two and is known as the main Village, where both the gondola and the Summit Express chair lift pickup and take you to the top of Dercum Mountain. This village features a pedestrian-only walking area, with plenty of cute boutiques, ski rental shops, coffee shops and restaurants. There is an outside overnight ski check near the gondola and bathrooms and lockers inside the season pass and ticketing office. The only thing this base area is really missing is a central ‘ski lodge’, …
Umberto D. (1952)
Written by Cesare Zavattini
Directed by Vittorio De Sica

But writers and directors in other countries we're so inspired by Italy's neorealist legacy that it can be viewed as the beginning of Neorealism for the rest of the world. During the war under Mussolini, much like the country as a whole, the film industry was controlled by national fascist interests. Filmmakers either had to cooperate with the controlling government or make films which pleased the fascist regime which usually violated their own creative sensibilities. During this time many of the filmmakers vowed an "Italian Spring" where they would be free to express the truth of Italy on screen. Soon after Italy was liberated these filmmakers got their chance and Italian Neorealism was born. The subject matter was simple, present Italy in its most truthful sense. Screen writer Cesare Zavattini, who worked with De Sica on The Bicycle Thief and Umberto D explains that Neorealism was simply an attempt not to use style or creative film technique to obscure the reality of life in Italy at the time. "The task of the artist – the neorealist artist at least …

Vacation destinations that are far more sunny than where one lives, more often than not lead to painful sunburns. It’s just a fact. This is true despite the preponderance of public service announcements warning against the risk and imminent danger of skin cancers, and an overabundance of sun blocks and sunscreens available in almost every store to help prevent sunburn. Yet and still, the most frequent and unexpected souvenir brought home from a sun-filled vacation is, quite literally, a blistering sunburn. And of course, no sunburn is complete without unsightly peeling, flaking and itching skin as the epidermis recuperates from the damage.
Having grown up in Southern California, I happen to know a thing or two about sunburn ~ far more things, in fact, than I’d care to know. Specifically, I grew up in Los Angeles, where almost every Sunday and even some Saturdays of my childhood were spent at the beach. It was my mom’s thing to go to the beach and relax after a tough week at work, lying on the sand with a good book while soaking up the sun’s tanning rays. Our thing ~ my brother’s and mine ~ was to play in the waves and dig never-ending holes in the sand. We were often asked if we were digging to China. Nope, just digging. As a result, every Sunday we returned home exhausted, and sunburned.
