[Handspinner] from Wikipedia
With the rapid increase in the spinner’s popularity in 2017, many children and teenagers began using it in school, and some schools also reported that kids were trading and selling the spinner toys.
As a result of their frequent use by schoolchildren, many school districts banned the toy. Some teachers argued that the spinners distracted students from their school work. According to a survey conducted by Alexi Roy and published in May 2017, 32% of the largest 200 American public and private high schools had banned spinners on campus.
When fidget spinners rose in popularity in 2017, many publications in the popular press discussed the marketing claims made about them for people with ADHD, autism, or anxiety. However, there is no scientific evidence that fidget spinners are effective as a treatment for children with autism or ADHD.
After the death of my mother, I inherited a sofa and two Nogaret armchairs and as I need to start my project of new social media, I propose for sale, to the best offerer these two pieces of a rare value.
Counterfeiting! how to fight them!
I have a method, simple and efficient, to fight against counterfeitings. It is part of my know how, and I don’t want to explain it without making a profit out of it. So you are always welcome to contact me and explain your problem, and I’ll be happy to tell you more!
In this post, I just want to emphasize the damages caused by counterfeitings, from an extract of an article from Wikipedia. Many other sources are available to show the huge losses in the econanmy due to counterfeitings. But you know it better than me if you read this article!
The spread of counterfeit goods (commonly called “knock-offs” or “rip-offs”) has become global in recent years and the range of goods subject to infringement has increased significantly. Apparel and accessories accounted for over 50 percent of the counterfeit goods seized by U.S Customs and Border Control. According to the study of Counterfeiting Intelligence Bureau (CIB) of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), counterfeit goods make up 5 to 7% of World Trade, however these figures cannot be substantiated due to the secretive nature of the industry.
A report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development on counterfeitings indicates that up to US$200 Billion of international trade could have been in counterfeit and illegally copied goods in 2005. In November 2009, the OECD updated these estimates, concluding that the share of counterfeit and illegitimate goods in world trade had increased from 1.85% in 2000 to 1.95% in 2007. That represents an increase to US$250 billion worldwide.
In a detailed breakdown of the counterfeit goods industry, the total loss faced by countries around the world is $600 billion, with the United States facing the most economic impact. When calculating counterfeit products, current estimates place the global losses at $400 billion. On November 29, 2010, the Department of Homeland Security seized and shut down 82 websites as part of a U.S. crackdown of websites that sell counterfeit goods, and was timed to coincide with “Cyber Monday,” the start of the holiday online shopping season.
Some see the rise in counterfeitings of goods as being related to globalisation. As more and more companies, in an effort to increase profits, move manufacturing to the cheaper labour markets of the third world, areas with weaker labour laws or environmental regulations, they give the means of production to foreign workers. These new managers of production have little or no loyalty to the original corporation. They see that profits are being made by the global brand for doing little (other than advertising) and see the possibilities of removing the middle men (i.e. the parent corporation) and marketing directly to the consumer. This can result in counterfeit products being virtually indistinguishable from original products, as they are being produced in the same company, and in damage to the parent corporation due to copyright infringement.
Certain consumer goods, especially very expensive or desirable brands or those that are easy to reproduce cheaply, have become frequent and common targets of counterfeiting. The counterfeiters either attempt to deceive the consumer into thinking they are purchasing a legitimate item, or convince the consumer that they could deceive others with the imitation. An item which makes no attempt to deceive, such as a copy of a DVD with missing or different cover art or a book without a cover, is often called a “bootleg” or a “pirated copy” instead.
Most counterfeit goods are produced and manufactured in China, making it the counterfeit capital of the world. In fact, the counterfeiting industry accounts for 8% of China’s GDP. Joining China are North Korea and Taiwan. Some counterfeits are produced in the same factory that produces the original, authentic product, using inferior materials. Another strange new trend in counterfeiting, especially seen in consumer electronics, is the manufacture of entirely novel products using poor quality materials or, more often, incorporating desirable features not present in a brand’s authentic product line and then including prominent and fake brand names and logotypes to profit from brand recognition or brand image.
An example would be imitation “Nokia” and “iPhone” cellular phones with features like dual SIM slots or analog TV, which are unavailable in authentic originals, or cosmetically-identical clones of high-end smartphones such as those from Hong Kong-based Goophone, using off the shelf system-on-chips from MediaTek and the Android operating system, often with user interfaces made to resemble the devices they imitate. Another example would be imitation “iPod” MP3 players whose power cells or batteries are removable and replaceable, whereas in authentic originals the power cells or batteries are permanently installed.
In the United States, a federal crackdown on counterfeit imports is driving an increase in domestic output of fake merchandise, according to investigators and industry executives. Raids carried out in New York City resulted in the seizure of an estimated $200 Million in counterfeit apparel, bearing the logos of brands such as “The North Face,” “Polo,” “Izod Lacoste,” “Rocawear,” “Seven for all Mankind,” and “Fubu.” One of the largest seizures was a joint operation in Arizona, Texas and California that seized seventy-seven containers of fake “Nike Air Jordan” shoes and a container of “Abercrombie & Fitch” clothing, valued at $69.5 million. Another current method of attacking counterfeits is at the retail level. Fendi sued the Sam’s Club division of Walmart for selling fake “Fendi” bags and leather goods in five states. Sam’s Club agreed to pay Fendi a confidential amount to settle the dispute and dismiss the action. In the case Tiffany v. eBay, Tiffany & Co. sued auction site eBay for allowing the sale of counterfeit items, but lost on all claims. Gucci filed suit against thirty websites in the United States and is currently in the process of suing one hundred more.
A number of companies involved in the development of anti-counterfeiting and brand protection solutions have come together to form special industry-wide and global organisations dedicated to combating the so-called “brand pirates” such as the International Hologram Manufacturers Association. Other companies and organisations have established web-based communities that provide a framework for crowd-sourced solutions to counterfeiting. One such free community, Collectors Proof enables manufacturers and users alike to associate unique identification numbers to virtually any item so that each new owner can update its chain of custody. Because quality counterfeit items are often difficult to discern from authentic goods, this approach enables potential customers to access an item’s current and previous ownersÂ â€“ its provenanceÂ â€“ prior to purchase.
To combat counterfeiting, companies may have the various parts of an item manufactured in independent factories and then limit the supply of certain distinguishing parts to the factory that performs the final assembly to the exact number required for the number of items to be assembled (or as near to that number as is practicable) or may require the factory to account for every part used and to return any unused, faulty or damaged parts. To help distinguish the originals from the counterfeits, the copyright holder may also employ the use of serial numbers or holograms etc., which may be attached to the product in another factory still.
Counterfeitings! You know now what it costs. So how much would you spend to stop it? Or how much did you already spend to stop it without success!

It is December and Time to prepare Christmas diner. So instead of a “business” post, lets enjoy a culinary post with some recipes.
Let start by the end of the meal, and a Christmas cake. (you can find full recipes here).
“This cake is a rich, dark, moist fruit cake, very flavorful at Christmas. Try icing with almond paste for a more festive touch. This recipe is started in October or November so as to let it mellow before the holidays. I remember very well my mother storing her fruit cake in an old butter churn that belonged to my grandmother and great grandmother. I wish that I had that old crock.”
Now for the wine to come with the Christmas cake, I recommend

GetMyAds? Another black box?
I have been using this Platform now for sometimes (over 6 months), and I can say that I am surprised by its simplicity and its performance!
It is a Dutch friend who almost beg me to listen to their presentation, to start investing in this system. I did it and so many question arose. Is it a Ponzi scheme, which is so in each head of French people after the failure of Madoff! All these exotic investments!
I shorten the presentation of GMA in 2 mn, that you can Watch below.
To invest in GetMyAds is clearly a decision outside the “traditional” authority, like a bank, but in a changing world it is a decision “out of the box”, that can generates for you a great wealth! Just remember bitcoins at its beginning. Here are some thoughts about it:
Is GetMyAds an MLM system?
I discovered with my different interviews that people do not like MLM, because they are not sure to have a constant energy to place to run the downline. Here the downline is just to accelerate your growth, but not a way to generate more revenue, and if people stop working their downline, it doesn’t cut your revenues. There is no obligation of a downline! So here also, the risk of lost revenues because of “no downline” does not exist. I am always reaady to share screen on Skype to demonstrate how it works.
How much time does it take?
10 mn when you buy token, depending on your rythm of Investment. Just the time to introduce the website to advertise. So it is not a time consuming occupation.
I just repeat what my Dutch friend said : “If you believe in it, do it. Life is a risk and there is Nothing without risk downthere on earth. It will last the time it last, but what is done is done”.
They are done!
I did it and I am happy having done it!
Here are the links for the long presentation in the different languages!
Since the first publication, this passive revenue sharing disappeared.
Conclusion: This type a revenue sharing is giving good result at the beinning of its life! After, nobody knows …
