ADPSR Statement of Support for the Occupy Movement

Since September 2011, the Occupy Movement has sprung up in cities and university campuses around the world, calling attention to the economic inequality and injustice under the current global financial system and institutions. In keeping with its mission of working for peace, environmental protection, ecological building, social justice, and the development of healthy communities, Architects/Designers/Planners for Social Responsibility (ADPSR) stands in support of the goal and cause of the Occupy Movement. Specifically:

1. We support the right of citizens to peaceful protests and freedom of expression.

2. We support the principle of non-violent actions for social change.

3. We support the use of public space for political expressions and dialogues.

4. We stand in solidarity with communities and activist organizations around the world seeking democracy and economic, environmental and social justice.

5. We call architects, designers, landscape architects, and planners to support the Occupy Movement through individual and collective actions.

We believe that public space is fundamental to our democracy. Public space should serve not only as a place for social gathering and recreation but also as a space for active political expressions and dialogues. Article 20 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights supports the right of every individual to freedom of peaceful assembly and association. The First Amendment to the US Constitution also guarantees the right of people to peacefully assemble. With citizens engaged in peaceful protests being evicted from public space in cities around the United States and students and faculty being intimidated and attacked by campus police, we call for actions and measures to safeguard the function of public space for peaceful assembly and political expressions.

Balance. When considering the design of an interior space, it is important to achieve some sort of balance. In other words, you must find a pleasant and appropriate spread of different furniture or items in a given area.

Expect to be sore after the first few sessions. That soreness reflects your body's efforts to repair and rebuild muscles, adapting them to their new workload, making them stronger.

We all know that having a prison next door drives down property values. So what do Jean Nouvel and Frank Gehry know that we don’t? It turns out that their widely celebrated recent projects in Manhattan’s trendy Chelsea neighborhood are next door - See more at: http://adpsr.org/blog/entry/3629013/prisons-as-a-good-neighbor#sthash.v1ita4LP.dpuf

The configuration of the Hertzberger’s Montessori school allows for gathering spaces at multiple scales, from a small group of children to an entire class with teacher, as well as providing multiple spaces for single students to retreat from the group. The balance is achieved because neither type of space dominates the building. Also, the spaces of different size are arranged so that an easy transition between space for the individual and that for the collective is achieved, further enhancing the balance.

There are many affiliate networks available on the internet. I'm sure this is not a difficult job for you to start this business, try browsing to the site Clickbank or CJ or Shareasale. Quite simply sign up to their network, then you can join as an affiliate. If you are a beginner, it is better to join with Clickbank as a first step. Clickbank has a lot of products in almost any topic and you can choose the product with ease. The process is very simple, both in terms of choosing a product, promote it, and of course make money as commission. That's why I suggest to go to Clickbank as a first step.

Choose Profitable Products
After joining the Affiliate Network, you need to choose a profitable product. Generally, products that have high demand in the market is favorable. Determine the market first and then select the product of a particular market. For example, the market and the forex trading is automated forex trading software products (say, Megadroid software). Do not recovered as the market is so full of health care (eg, weight loss). You should choose the market in which you already have the basic knowledge, it will help you to better understand the market and affiliate products. In the case of Clickbank, choose a product that has a good Gravity and Popularity

Get Visitors
The hardest part of course is how do we get visitors. Besides, you also have to present your products to people so that they are willing to buy the products offered. It is recommended, that you present the product to people who are relevant to your affiliate products, because in this way you can increase the likelihood of purchase.

Build A Blog
The most powerful method to get traffic in the long term - that is the way to build a blog. Then try to write articles related to your product (say 2-3 articles per week). Make an article that directly addressed the issue of visitors to your blog and show affiliate product as a solution. Thus your blog will slowly attract visitors from the search engines are really people who are looking for your product (they have a real problem that can be solved with an affiliate product). In this way, you are directing traffic and possible buyers make more sales, and ultimately of course you get a commission per sale.

Slowly, you will build a blog authority by issuing useful articles on a regular basis. Join in the forums related to market and connect the link to your blog. Do not forget to write comments on other related blogs One surefire strategy to build a blog and get targeted buyers are using: http://ruangkeluargaku.blogspot.com/2013/07/cari-uang-lewat-ekioskucom.html
1. Google Adwords to get traffic.
2. Creating a Facebook page and a product page link, directing traffic via Facebook Ads
3. Develop a Facebook Fan and Twitter Follower you, and spread your affiliate link to a variety of networks.
4. Try Google Plus too.
5. Advertise on other blogs (purchase monthly banner ads or text links).

If you are already successful with a 1 and 1 market blog, please go to another market and follow the same steps. Do not forget to avoid previous mistakes and do the best approach. In this way, in a short time (eg, 6-12 months), you will have a profitable affiliate blog. You just sit, doing maintenace and generate money for the long term.

Good luck and success in the affiliate business! http://ruangkeluargaku.blogspot.com/2013/07/cari-uang-lewat-ekioskucom.html
