Hey Chris Guthrie here I run a blog called EntrepreneurBoost.com and I’ve been using Amazon’s affiliate program since January 2009. In late 2009 I actually got fired from my job, but fortunately by then I was already generating a full time income from Amazon’s affiliate program and I’ve been self employed ever since generating well over $1 Million in revenue from Amazon’s affiliate program and earning tens of thousands of dollars from other sources. I love helping people succeed so I’ve created a quick companion study guide of some of the best tips I’ve learned in the past several years with Amazon’s affiliate program: Top Ways 17 Ways To Make Money With Amazon Associates: 1. Niche Selection Is Crucial I’ll get to the actual methods I use on my websites in the next tips, but the first thing I want to say is that the niche you choose is the absolute most important decision you can make. This literally will make or break everything you do. So if you want to make money with Amazon’s affiliate program You must target physical product focused niches and keywords It’s much easier to make money using Amazon’s affiliate program if the people coming to your website are looking for a specific product that your website discusses. No matter how many times I say this, I still see people with completely unrelated blogs trying to make money with Amazon. 2. Link To Products Inside Your Content Roughly half of my Amazon income comes from basic text links posted inside the content body area of a blog post or page. Example: Check out this cool helicopter. I’ve been covering these RC helicopters for months and I’ve never seen this one priced for under $30 well off its $129.95 list price. Amazon Tips Companion Study Guide written by Chris Guthrie Simple text links in the content of an article are the most effective way to get web visitors to click. People trust the body of the content on a page more so than any other area of the website and I know this because the tracking data I’ve collected. 3. Make Product Images Clickable Affiliate Links: The second best thing I’ve found next to a simple text link is to use images of the product you’re talking about and make them clickable like this cool usb missile launcher: Roughly 15% of my total Amazon income has come from simply making all of the product images on my websites clickable affiliate links.
Card fraud was up 16 per cent to $304 million in 2013, and the number of transactions on lost or stolen cards rose 26 per cent to $34 million. The vast majority of the fraud was done online, accounting for $219.7 million, up 20 per cent on 2012, according to the latest figures from payments industry body the Australian Payments Clearing Association. But since 2010, the number of fraudulent transactions for smaller amounts on lost or stolen cards appears to have jumped dramatically. The total number of transactions made on Australian lost or stolen cards rose 94 per cent in 2013 to 162,896. Since November last year, Victoria Police have maintained that data they have compiled shows the explosion in the use of tap and go cards in Australia is to blame for a rise in break-ins and bag snatching to steal contactless cards. However – after extensive consultation with police – internet security experts, banks and card companies say they don’t agree.
Vast quantities of "big data" are posing major challenges for today's computers. But there are some potential answers, inspired by the human brain. They are described in a new article published in the journal "IEEE Access".
In an effort to keep consumers more informed about the reliability of the products they buy, over the past year and a half, SquareTrade has taken a look at the failure rates of many types and brands of laptops, cell phones, and game consoles. This time we turn our attention to digital cameras. In this reliability report, SquareTrade examines digital camera reliability from a few different angles. We start with an overview of digital camera failures, both from manufacturer defects and accidents. We then compare camera reliability by brand and price point. This analysis examines customer reported failure data from a sample of over 60,000 new digital cameras purchased by SquareTrade warranty customers (see Appendix for sample details). SquareTrade offers warranty plans that cover accidental damage as well as hardware failures, and we consider malfunctions from normal usage (“malfunctions”) separate from accidents (“accidents”) in our analysis. We refer to “total failure rate” as the sum of failure rates due to malfunctions and accidents. Among our conclusions, we found that almost 11% of digital cameras fail over the first 2 years of ownership, with 6.6% of failures coming from malfunctions and 4.1% from accidents. We also found the least expensive point-and-shoot digital cameras to be the least reliable, while expensive DSLR cameras tended to be the most reliable. This correlation between price and reliability was also found in SquareTrade’s earlier research on laptop computers as well. When we break the reported malfunction analysis down by brand and price, Panasonic clearly emerges as the most reliable brand of point-and-shoots. For example, on inexpensive point-and-shoot cameras, Panasonic had a malfunction rate of just 5.3% over the first 2 years. On the opposite end of the spectrum are Casio and Polaroid, with 2 year malfunction rates of 13.0% and 11.9% respectively. Now let’s delve into the data and take a look at the numbers. Please note that this study only includes digital cameras. Whenever we use the word camera, we are only referring to digital cameras.

Many process plants have an outdated Distributed Control System (DCS) currently in place. As a DCS reaches the end of its useful life, an upgrade to a new automation system is required. One of the main factors determining when to upgrade is the expected superior performance of a new automation system as compared to the old DCS. Superior performance results in lower overall plant operating costs, less downtime and lower maintenance costs—providing sufficient return on investment to justify an upgrade. This white paper will focus on the specific ways in which a new automation system can deliver superior performance as compared to a typical older DCS. Areas that will be covered include but aren’t limited to Advanced Process Control, integration with other manufacturing-related software and hardware systems, remote access, data analysis, PID loop control, and alarm and event handling. For each of these areas, this white paper will show why a new automation system is better than an older DCS. End users should expect much more from their new automation system than from their old DCS, and this white paper will show them how to fulfill those expectations, thereby justifying the decision to upgrade from an old DCS to a new automation system. Superior Performance A new automation system will outperform an older DCS in a variety of ways as listed in Table 1, and as discussed below. One of the main advantages will be superior process control, which confers a number of benefits. Table 1: Advantages of New Automation System over Older DCS Superior PID loop control and auto tuning Improved Advanced Process Control Improved alarm and event handling More reporting options with easier implementation Easier integration with third-party software systems Easier integration with smart instruments, analyzers and valves Better remote access Lower support costs Better access to new features and functions Easier to find personnel familiar with the system...
Optimal Implementation of On-Line Optimization Xueyu Chen1, Ralph W. Pike1, Thomas A. Hertwig 2 and Jack R. Hopper3 1. Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA 70803 USA, 2. IMC Agrico Company, Convent, LA 70822 USA, 3. Lamar University, Beaumont, TX 77710 USA Abstract Results from a theoretical and numerical evaluation of on-line optimization algorithms were used to recommend the best way to conduct on-line optimization. This optimal procedure conducts combined gross error detection and data reconciliation to detect and rectify gross errors in plant data sampled from the distributed control system. The Tjoa-Biegler method (the contaminated Gaussian distribution) was used for gross errors in the range of 3σ - 30σ or the robust method (Lorentzian distribution) for larger gross errors. This step generates a set of measurements containing only random errors which is used for simultaneous data reconciliation and parameter estimation using the least squares method. Updated parameters are used in the plant model for economic optimization that generates optimal set points for the distributed control system. Applying this procedure to a Monsanto sulfuric acid contact plant, a 3% increase in profit and a 10% reduction in SO2 emissions were projected over current operating condition which is consistent with other reported applications. Keywords: On-line optimization; data reconciliation parameter estimation; process optimization...

Mountain Home, Idaho recognized that the water supply system was no longer able to keep up with the demands of growing population and an expanding business area. In particular, communications had become unreliable between wells, storage facilities and operators. The Public Works Department wanted a water system controls upgrade that was both easily expandable and offered automatic responses to occasional power failures. The solution created by Advanced Control Systems of Boise Idaho, combined Omron controls and InduSoft software for data management with radio communications and Win911 for emergency notification. The Mountain Home, Idaho, water/wastewater control system was reaching the end of its useful life and was no longer able to cope with the demands of a growing population and an expanding business area. In particular, communications had become unreliable between wells, storage facilities and operators. The Public Works Department planned a water system controls upgrade that would be easily expandable and offer automatic responses to occasional power failures. After years of service the communication and data reliability had become a major concern for the local municipality. Intermittent interference, hours of lost communication and crossover caused by use of older frequencies were the main contributors to the data reliability issues. Based on a board level customized product, the current control system made it difficult to find general support and was not easily upgraded from the current platform. The Mountain Home Public Works Department contracted with Advanced Control Systems (ACS), an experienced integrator for water/wastewater treatment plants, to develop a control system that addressed the current needs with greater communications reliability, and allowed for easy expansion to respond to growing numbers of residential and business users. Occasional power outages made it necessary to equip the system with emergency generators to maintain water service.
