Making trouble

The funny thing about the reason that anti-birth control advocates have for protesting the morning-after pill, that teenage girls don't know enough to take it without a doctor's help, is that they have only their own sorry asses to blame if in fact teenage girls don't know what it is or how to take it. Kari Lydersen on Alternet confronts the fact that teenage girls may in fact be too stupid to handle the pill correctly.
Okay, I'm overstating her case for comical effect. In fact, teenage girls' ignorance of sexual matters is all the more reason to make the pill available. If they don't know enough to handle birth control before they have sex, maybe the morning after pill will help a few of them out. And what they don't know could fill several volumes the size of the O.E.D.

High school students I've talked to also have a lot of other bad information about contraception and STDs – that HIV and AIDS are two separate viruses, that married people can't get STDs, that herpes is a fatal disease.

Yeah, when I was in high school, it was believed that you got syphilis from animals, that you could douche with Mountain Dew as a spermicide, and that if a guy smoked pot, it meant he was sterile. The funny thing about the last one is we learned it in school! They were trying to convince the boys not to smoke pot. If that's not proof that people who teach need to spend a little more time actually thinking about how their students might perceive things, I don't know what is.
How did kids get so dumb? Well, my last example is a good indicator. Disinformation and miseducation is how they get so dumb. Conservatives have infiltrated our schools and turned them into propaganda camps to spread disinformation that supports their political futures. You know, like abstinence-only education? And then they have the nerve to squall that their childrens isn't larnin'.

Last week I told you about Google Site Targeting -
putting your AdWords ads on specific websites
instead of targeting by keyword, and how this
slices the world in a completely different way.

Now you can pay to have your ad shown, rather
than paying per click, and you can more easily
advertise products that people wouldn't necessarily
think to search for.

Google started out selling this space for $2.00
per thousand impressions ("CPM"). Then they
dropped it to $1.00.

On Monday they just dropped it again, to 25 cents.

(Now we're talking!)

This now puts those clicks in the ~5 cent neighborhood,
and in some cases less. It's a fun thing to play with.
But before you do, though, make sure you:

-Set a low daily budget so you don't make a big mistake

-Track conversion rates (Very important! Without
sales conversion, nothing else matters.)

-Delete sites with horrible Click Thru Rates - Hey, if
you're not getting any clicks, you shouldn't be paying
them for the impressions.

Want to increase the clicks on your adsense ads? Of course you do. This means more money in your pocket.
For FREE Information. That will for sure make you more money by the end of the week.

Hello Amanda, I am forever bewildered at how many people simply disregard all the sexuually transmitted diseases about STD's. If one recollects about how long the warnings regarding general STD's have been around, and how fast they are spreading, particularly in the africa, and that is not even not even mentioning genital herpes lesions picture, then the value of sites like Making trouble become obvious. The proliferation of STD's such as genital herpes lesions picture must be stopped. Just my two cents worth. Keep up the excellent work I enjoyed your site and will visit it again soon.

Interesting web site. I've found whenever you're dealing with residual income opportunity, people might sign up but do nothing. That's whats so disappointing about trying to make a living online. You work your butt off on promoting, but if you don't have a product that sells itself folks won't do jack. Ahhhhh.....the life of an internet junkie.

Good luck,

Hoodia Diet is the solution for safe weight loss. Hoodia Gordonii contains a natural active ingredient, P57, which has only recently been identified. The P57 works as an appetite suppressant.

Taking Hoodia Diet Tablets when you are hungry alleviates the feeling of hunger and so makes you less likely to snack between meals due to hunger.

The Hoodia Gordonii Cactus has been used by the San indigenous people of South Africa for hundreds of years as an appetite suppressant and thirst quencher.

Extracts from this succulent have shown in clinical trials on obese subjects to reduce caloric intake by 30% to 40%. Significant weight loss has resulted from such a drop in caloric intake.

Therefore, Hoodia is one of the best and most powerful natural appetite suppressant available, if used in conjunction with any diet. Hoodia will help you to stop snacking between meals. It will also help you to reduce the amount that you eat at meal times.
