“The Enviable SECRETS to Generating ONGOING ONLINE PROFITS!

If you’re already doing it, you will appreciate the value of the service we’re about to offer

…if you haven’t yet started, then this ESSENTIAL information is what you have been waiting for!

 

Most individuals would agree, a lifestyle career, sounds attractive.

…and living it is even better!

However, making it happen has VERY LITTLE to do with luck!

It’s about being in the know…

…staying motivated, and taking consistent positive actions!

You need to stay at the cutting edge and know what methods and techniques will generate you profits.

MORE IMPORTANTLY, what will waste your time and leave you disappointed and feeling frustrated!

The little tips and tricks that make the BIG DIFFERENCE in the level of PROFITS you’ll generate.

When you working for yourself, and probably from the comfort of your own home, you can never learn or know too much!

So, what follows will keep you at the cutting edge of online profit generation, without it breaking the bank.

I am not going to make a big pitch of this because the cost, as you will shortly see, is almost INSIGNIFICANT!

Who are we?

We’re a couple of good looking guys, and a lady, who are REALLY doing it. Stephen Henbie, Kevin Martyn and Dr. Deborah Swallow.

We’re all generating healthy livings online from a variety of different disciplines.

Talking the talk and walking the walk in the front-line trenches of the Internet.

Finding what works, and more importantly, WHAT DOESN’T.

 

We’ll share it all…

We’ll tell you about the mistakes we’ve made also, as often being aware of them is more important than the positive stuff.

So, without further foreplay, let me introduce the:

The Lazy Mans Profits Guide!

Its specifically for SMART marketers and profit seekers alike.

Whether you’re a newbie marketer, or a seasoned pro, you will receive loads of ongoing value from this unique service.

No more long and drawn-out time-consuming emails to trawl through.

We will be covering ALL aspects of online profit generating.

For convenience, every guide ‘UPDATE’ will be delivered by Face Book messenger bot and the messages will be bite-sized, and concise.

You will IMMEDIATELY know if the message is something you will have an interest in knowing more about, or not.

If it is, then there will often be a link which leads you to a short tutorial, video, or take you to a page which provides you with more information.

Other guide messages may just contain short a ‘AHA moment’ tips or motivation.

How many guide ‘UPDATES’ will you get each week?

This will vary depending upon the time of year, and what is happening online.

However, once subscribed, we will send you a minimum of 20 messages a month.

Then, if The ‘Lazy Mans Profits Guide’ is not for you can subscribe at ANY time!

Subscription is a GREAT investment into your future profit generating ability and potential.

So, after the BIG build up, you may find the price somewhat of an anti-climax.

Subscribe today and LOCK IN your cost of just £5 per month!

SERIOUSLY – just £5!

Why:

At this cost, I know from experience, when we’re providing ongoing value, VERY FEW people UNSUBSCRIBE!

Our aim is to grow the subscription to several thousand subscribers!

Let’s Get Real!

You may have already experienced this?

Just ONE IDEA or profit tip COULD be responsible for adding a ton of additional residual income to your bank account.

Or even start you a COMPLETELY NEW profit stream which could be worth thousands every month.

We will be providing a minimum of 20 such thought provoking tips, ideas and AHA moments EVERY MONTH!

240 a year! …perhaps MANY MORE!

To put the VALUE, you will be receiving into true perspective:

I am NOT a smoker, but today, £5 will buy you LESS than 11 cigarettes here in the UK!

I would also expect ANYONE who subscribes to generate AT LEAST 100 times their subscription cost in net profits, EVERY MONTH!

…perhaps VERY MUCH MORE.

Just so long as you use it and TAKE ACTION!

PLEASE NOTE: We seriously DON’T know where this is going, or what it may grow into.

It could become a MONSTER and far more expensive in a short time, so lock your cost in today…

Try us for the month, then if we are NOT you cup of tea, unsubscribe and we can still remain friends!

New Technique Delivers Secure Quantum Networks Over Long Distances

 

Researchers from Australia’s Griffith University have demonstrated a new approach to test whether a quantum communication is secure. This method could be very important in the construction of future quantum networks. 

The new technique is called quantum steering and allows us to test whether two particles are entangled, even in real-life conditions where such a task would be intractable using current technology. As reported in Science Advances, quantum steering could be used to verify entanglement for up to 80 kilometers (50 miles) of telecommunication fibers.

Entanglement is a curious quantum phenomenon and a key player in the world

 

Researchers from Australia’s Griffith University have demonstrated a new approach to test whether a quantum communication is secure. This method could be very important in the construction of future quantum networks. 

The new technique is called quantum steering and allows us to test whether two particles are entangled, even in real-life conditions where such a task would be intractable using current technology. As reported in Science Advances, quantum steering could be used to verify entanglement for up to 80 kilometers (50 miles) of telecommunication fibers.

Entanglement is a curious quantum phenomenon and a key player in the world of quantum computing. We are used to imagining particles as distinct and independent objects, but that’s not exactly true in quantum mechanics. It is possible for them to interact in such a way that they need to be considered together. Such particles are considered entangled and even if they are separated by a great distance, when something happens to one particle it will affect the other.

Einstein didn’t like this at all since it appeared to violate the property of locality. He called entanglement “spooky action at a distance”, but it is nothing of the sort. And it will soon have a very important real-life application. An entanglement state is very delicate and this is what makes it useful for secure communications. It can’t be hacked without being destroyed.

But real-life cases are more complex. A huge number of entangled photons are being sent through fiber optics because only a small fraction will survive. So it might be possible to fake entanglement and get access to the network.

“As the length of quantum channel grows, fewer and fewer photons successfully pass through the link, because no material is perfectly transparent and absorption and scattering take their toll,” senior author Geoff Pryde, said in a statement. “This is a problem for existing quantum nonlocality verification techniques with photons. Every photon lost makes it easier for the eavesdropper to break the security by mimicking entanglement.”

Quantum steering uses another fascinating phenomenon to check if communication is secure, quantum teleportation. It removes some of the entangled photons from fiber optics and moves them to a clean and efficient quantum channel where the photons are assessed.

“Our scheme records an additional signal that lets us know if the light particle has made it through the transmission channel,” lead author Dr Morgan Weston added. “This means that the failed distribution events can be excluded up front, allowing the communication to be implemented securely even in the presence of very high loss.” 

Quantum technologies promise to revolutionize computers and communications over the next few decades, but there are still many challenges to overcome.

11 innovative ways to make money online

“Online work” used to mean “money grabbing scam.” You might find a job selling things online for a com

“Online work” used to mean “money grabbing scam.” You might find a job selling things online for a commission or writing blogs for money, but these rarely provided a living wage, or even enough spare change to justify the time commitment. Times have changed. The internet has finally become profitable, not just for startup entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley, but for regular people with everyday skills.

That’s not to say the scams are gone. In fact, you need to be more careful than ever as the fake opportunities have become more sophisticated in their marketing. Click here for 5 online job scams and learn how to spot them.

You don’t have to build your own website or incorporate a business (although these things certainly help.) You can enroll in a ready-made network and ply your trade among similar-minded craftspeople.

What are these services? How can you sign up? Here’s a list of side-gigs to get your hustle on.

5 Reasons It’s A Miracle That ‘Star Wars’ Got Made At All

You are an executive at a movie studio. A young director is coming off a hugely successful movie about teens in 1960s America called American Graffiti. For his next project, he wants more than ten times his previous budget to shoot a huge special effects feature with the catchy title Adventures Of Luke Starkiller, As Taken From The Journal Of The Whills, Saga I: The Star Wars. The original two-page treatment in which he outlines the concept begins: “This is the story of Mace Windy, a revered Jedi-bendu of Ophuchi, as related to us by C.J. Thorpe, padawaan learner to the famed Jedi.”

This, friends, is the inspirational tale of an objectively terrible idea that only got worse … until the finished product changed the goddamned world. The next time somebody calls your idea stupid, tell them how Star Wars came about.

It Only Seems Like A Sure Thing After The Fact

When it comes to blockbuster movie franchises, Star Wars feels like cheating. A simplistic story of good and evil told against the backdrop of the greatest special effects ever filmed and featuring a smirking Harrison Ford in his prime? Shit, how can you lose? Add in the fact that everything you saw on screen could be turned into a kickass toy or action figure, and it seems like the Hollywood version of an infinite money cheat code. That’s how it looks now.

But at the time, even George Lucas didn’t really want to make Star Wars. He wanted to give us a 1970s reboot of the 1930s sci-fi adventure series Flash Gordon. But the rights to that series had already been purchased by Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis, so Lucas had to build his own version effectively from scratch. His own expensive, totally incoherent version which still stole so many elements that it’s a wonder they didn’t get sued. Hell, the live-action Flash Gordon episodes would even open with that slanted crawl, stating the “chapter” and giving some backstory:

Columbia Pictures

Lucasfilm“Use the flash, Luke.” – Obi-Wan in early drafts

 

And what reason did anyone have to think that Lucas could make a world-changing fantasy blockbuster? The only thing remotely similar on his resume was 1971’s THX 1138, a bleak, weird film that had been dismissed as incomprehensible by the studio and bombed at the box office. So imagine being the studio executives when this bearded guy brings in his 200-page script that’s a confusing mishmash of insanity and “borrowed” ideas. Even personal friends of Lucas admitted that they couldn’t understand what the script was about.

The Original Story Was A Confusing Trainwreck

So the whole thing had started with The Journal Of The Whills. It left everyone totally baffled, so Lucas wrote a new treatment, this one 13 pages long, then eventually expanded that into a full-length script called The Star Wars. This first draft is sort of like Star Wars, in the same way that getting run over by a bus is sort of like driving a car. The right elements are there (wheels, road, etc.), but they aren’t doing what they’re supposed to.

The story follows a fat teenager named Annikin Starkiller. Annikin’s dad drags him to the planet Aquilae, where they meet General Luke Skywalker. Almost immediately, Aquilae is attacked by the New Galactic Empire for reasons that we couldn’t explain without a flowchart and an advanced understanding of post-Jedi-Rebellion economic policy. Two or three more flowcharts deconstructing Aquilaean politics would be needed to explain how General Skywalker loses the war, but Annikin and the General do manage to sneak away from the planet with the last remaining members of the Aquilaean Royal Family. By “sneak away,” of course, we mean “get chased and shot down over Wookiee country,” which leads to General Skywalker training a squadron of Wookiee fighter pilots to shoot down the Death Star. Actual line from the script:

Lucasfilm

And just between you and us, we think there’s something seriously wrong with this Annikin kid. Another quote:

Lucasfilm

 

Yes, you read that right. He SOCKS PRINCESS LEIA IN THE FUCKING FACE. Now, since you’ve probably seen movies before, you may have guessed that Leia falls madly in love with young Starkiller. This draft’s version of Leia is 14 years old, by the way. Just thought we’d mention that.

Also, we already knew that Lucas likes to make up funny names, but we doubt that’s much consolation for the unlucky Sith knight Prince Valorum. And it probably doesn’t make the Emperor feel much better, either, seeing as he has to go through his fictional life with the unfortunate name of Cos Dashit. As a side note, we’d like to recommend that if a woman named Beru ever offers to cook for you, say no.

Lucasfilm

A lot of the characters are there in that first draft, at least by name. Han Solo is a Jedi and, quote, “a huge, green skinned monster with no nose and large gills.” Meanwhile, Chewbacca “resembles a huge, grey bushbaby with fierce baboon-like fangs.” This thing had the potential to be amazingly bad.

3

Once Production Started … Things Only Got Worse

Sure enough Universal Studios passed on the project. But 20th Century Fox stepped in and gave Lucas $8.5 million, maybe because they were afraid of what he might do otherwise. So Lucas flew off to shoot in Great Britain and Tunisia, while in the U.S. a team of untried special effects artists gathered to start making movie magic. After a year, that team had blown half their budget and had exactly three usable special effects shots to show for it. Lucas and some Fox executives dropped in on them to find out what the hell was going on, and found the crew standing around, having a refrigerator lifted and dropped on the concrete in front of them because “everyone kinda wondered how it would sound.”

Things weren’t going any better in Europe, where Lucas’ British crew began to openly mock and rebel against him, taking breaks without permission and refusing to work the long hours they’d need to meet the deadline. The production soared over budget. Corners were cut at every turn — many of the film’s dazzling effects were thrown together using discarded ideas, old dolls, toy model kits, and a coat of shitty paint. If you watch the original trilogy on Blu-ray, you’ll see how many of the stormtroopers look like they’re wearing mismatched, poorly made Comic-Con costumes. Not even the San Diego Comic-Con. Like, Cleveland’s.

Via Star Wars HelmetsEast Cleveland’s.

 

That’s because when Lucas ordered up an army’s worth of fancy space soldier duds, the costume department rightfully shit their pants. They simply weren’t equipped to crank out something on that scale, so they needed someone who was. And since people who specialize in the large-scale manufacturing of space armor don’t exist, they turned to the next best thing: Andrew Ainsworth, a man who made fish ponds and canoes for a living. Ainsworth went straight to work, pretty much making shit up as he went along. Ainsworth vacuum-formed stacks of stormtrooper helmets out of high-density polyethylene plastic, then blasted them with a thick coat of white automotive paint. This would’ve been a fine solution if it weren’t for the fact that absolutely no kind of paint whatsoever will bond to HDPE.

Via Star Wars HelmetsThen he handed them over to a class of finger-painting kindergartners for detailing.

The original stormtrooper helmets were so poorly finished that collectors can spot the original props by matching up their glaring paint flaws with their screen appearances.

Everyone had to make do with what they could find. To create the human figures occupying the miniature of Luke’s landspeeder, 98th-level visual effects wizard Lorne Peterson looked for a quick and dirty alternative to sculpting wee versions of Luke and Obi-Wan. He found it in the form of two Steve Austin (OG Six Million Dollar Man, not the Stone Cold one) action figures, which he mildly disguised with tiny Luke and Obi-Wan robes and stuffed into the vehicle. Although it looks downright ludicrous from the front, it totally worked in the film because the prop was shot only from far away or from behind, and for only short amounts of time. Which is a good thing, because miniature Luke isn’t wearing any pants.

Artoo/Sideshow CollectorsAnd Obi-Wan doesn’t have any damned legs.

 

The ships were born from a process Hollywood model makers call kitbashing, wherein they plunder store-bought model kits (typically tanks and military aircraft) for high-tech-looking plastic bits, which they’d then glue together into even more high-tech-looking plastic bits to make a good-looking model for the film. (This process would oddly come full circle when, years later, the team would buy an officially licensed X-Wing model off the shelf to use in a Return Of The Jedi effects shot.)

Oh, and the iconic Meridian Trench that wraps around the Death Star — you know, the setting of one of the most thrilling climactic sequences in cinematic history? That’s due to a totally accidental flaw in model maker and spaceship designer Colin Cantwell’s model. The material Cantwell used to form the Death Star’s iconic “that’s no moon” shape had a tendency to shrink, which caused the two dome-shaped halves to not quite meet up in the middle, leaving an unsightly gap around its equator.

via Kitbashed#StopBodyKitShaming

Rather than, you know, fill it in, he called up Lucas and suggested that he rewrite the final battle scene to include a thrilling sequence in the giant crack in his model which was totally part of the original design and in no way a mistake that he didn’t feel like fixing. Cantwell pitched the idea of a “ditch” around the Death Star which the heroic Rebel pilots had to dive and swoop and swish their way through, breathlessly avoiding heavy armaments on their way to the final attack point. Prior to that, the now-famous exhaust port was an obvious but well-guarded hole that the Rebels would swarm around like flies at a picnic table. Lucas agreed that Cantwell’s pitch sounded way better (because, Cantwell’s motives aside, it was), at which point Cantwell presumably wrote “DONE!” on a sticky note, slapped it on his model, and went out to get hammered.

Meanwhile, everything that could be recycled, was. Rebel troop helmets are the same helmets the Death Star gunners wear, painted white with the face shield removed:

Orignal Stormtrooper

Via Star Wars HelmetsAfter Jedi, two of them would put aside their differences to form Space Daft Punk.

 

Extraordinarily bored Star Wars fans have even made a sort of Where’s Waldo? game out of figuring out how many times the head of unintentionally hilarious robotic bounty hunter IG-88 was reused as a background prop.

Making Star WarsSpoiler: It was a lot of times.

Oh, and after spending who knows how much time and money on an elaborate model of the Millennium Falcon

Lucasfilm

… they realized it looked too similar to the Eagle, a ship from the television show Space: 1999:

ITVIt’s co-piloted by a giant wolf named Bitefronta

So the effects crew had to start over from scratch. (The original model got recycled as the briefly seen Tantive IV.)

 
2

But Finally, The Movie Was Done! And Everyone Still Hated It

So once the actual movie was completed, everybody realized what a work of genius it was, right? Nope. No theater chain wanted it. The science fantasy adventure was completely out of step with the sci-fi hits of the era. (They were all dark, adult films like Soylent Green and Logan’s Run.) To avoid having to sit on this expensive turkey, Fox resorted to underhanded means to get it in front of audiences. They told the theaters they couldn’t have a surefire upcoming hit (The Other Side Of Midnight) unless they agreed to take this Star Wars turd along with it (a practice that is totally illegal, by the way).

 

Thus, Star Wars was booked into a whopping 39 theaters for its grand opening, in the hopes that it would at least make a little bit of its money back. All but one of those theaters saw this weird little movie break their all-time attendance records. At the end of all that, the crazy bearded guy was right. Within a couple of years, approximately 96 percent of the world’s children were dressing up as a Star Wars character for Halloween. The era of the high-concept sci-fi blockbuster was born … and with it, the era of building films around franchises and merchandising potential.

No, It Was Not Originally Conceived As A Nine-Part Series

So the first film says it’s “Episode IV” right in the opening credits. That’s what makes Star Wars different from, say, Transformers, or even the Matrix trilogy — it was a single grand epic spawned in Lucas’s possibly deranged mind long before cameras started rolling on the first film.

Lucasfilm“There’s no way the first three are anything but gold!”

The legend goes that when Lucas began writing the story, it got too big for one movie, so he decided to split it up. Shortly after releasing the first film, Lucas claimed he already had an idea of what all nine parts of the saga would be about. Obviously, he would only go on to make six films (Lucas now says there were always supposed to be just six). But the truth is that when they released the first film, he had no idea it was anything other than a standalone movie. Most fans now don’t realize that the famous “Episode IV” isn’t anywhere in the original opening crawl — it was only added to later prints. The idea of numbering the episodes came up with the second film, which was originally announced as Star Wars II.

Let’s look at Darth Vader, for example. The prequels make it clear that the overall saga is supposed to be the story of Darth Vader’s corruption and final redemption … but Lucas didn’t even know who Darth Vader was until the second draft of Star Wars II (that is, The Empire Strikes Back). In interviews, Lucas has claimed that he came up with the name “Darth Vader” as a variation of “Dark Father,” implying that it was always supposed to be a clue of his relationship with Luke. But in the early drafts, Lucas gave the name “Darth Vader” to a completely normal Imperial general who had nothing to do with Luke.

In all likelihood, Darth Vader’s real name was supposed to be … Darth Vader. That’s why in the original Star Wars, Obi-Wan calls him “Darth” instead of “Anakin,” the name he would have known him by. In fact, in Lucas’ early notes, Vader and Luke’s father are supposed to appear together onscreen. Though we’re saying all of this to avoid the obvious: If Lucas had planned for Leia to be Luke’s sister all along, this probably wouldn’t have happened …

LucasfilmProbably.

None of this should diminish Star Wars in your mind — it should do the opposite. All of that chaotic, slapdash bullshit came together to create a cultural phenomenon that will probably inspire generations of children long after we’re dead. After the apocalypse, scavengers will dig up our Star Wars merchandise and trade it as currency. With this comes a lesson none of us should forget: The line between madness and genius is very thin indeed.
