Unfortunately, this has only moved the focus for predatory lenders to small businesses. Desperately seeking a cash cure, these owners are now at risk of borrowing money for their companies and not fully understanding the terms of their loans. The subprime lending industry has exploded to $3 billion. These loans are still unregulated and are not protected by the same laws that cover individual borrowers. Mark Pinsky of…
  • Are Your Competitors Stealing Your AdWords Budget?

    29 Jul 2014 | 12:30 pm
    A new kind of click-fraud seems to be emerging. If your business is advertising online through a service like Google AdWords, your competitors could be employing an underground service that actually clicks your ads repetitively without giving you any traffic or sales. This isn’t the kind of click-fraud where a site owner intentionally clicks on the ads on his or her own site to generate additional revenue. Instead, it’s the kind where competitors click on your ads just to deplete your ad budget…and maybe replace your ads with theirs. It’s a new twist on an old trick.

    Solar power cells need to stay relatively cool for the sake of both efficiency and longevity, but active cooling (like ventilation) isn’t practical; it’s expensive, and may block the very rays the cells are supposed to collect. To tackle this problem, Stanford University researchers have created a new form of solar cell that cools itself. The technique embeds a pattern of very small cone and pyramid shapes into the collector’s silica surface, bouncing hot infrared wavelengths away while letting in the visible light that generates the most energy. The result is a heavily…
