ChatGPT Plugins the OpenAI ChatGPT plugins might just be the next big thing. ..... Google has been the undisputed ruler of the customer journey for years now, dominating both browsers with Chrome and search engines with They’ve even gone a step further by introducing their own suite of products to capture more data on the user and replace other websites, like Google Flights and Google For Retailer. It’s clear that Google has been playing the long game, but is it time for a new player to shake things up? ........ forget typing in a search bar, you can now talk directly to an agent and get the information you need. ........ until two days ago, ChatGPT was still “limited” because it didn’t have access to the latest information and the “internet”. ..... The introduction of the ChatGPT plugins has revolutionized the game yet again - ChatGPT now has plugs into the “internet” and can be fed with all the websites out there. This means that the traditional customer journey is about to get a serious shake-up. ....... What if OpenAI doesn’t need Chrome or any other browser? .

What if OpenAI doesn’t need Chrome or any other browser? What if they don’t need middle-men either? ..... they could allow operation providers to connect directly with customers through the ChatGPT interface........

After a few years, I discovered that the secret to being one of the biggest affiliate marketers in the world was simply having a VSL (video sales letter) that prints cash. ........ One of my VSLs selling foot insoles cracked my first $100k/day in affiliate sales. ......... Shorly after hitting over $200k in a day in rev with only $140k in spend. ......... I committed my life to VSLs. Built a team to specialize in VSLs and (along with a HUGE amount of failures) went on to create monster campaigns in all sorts of niches. Pillows, Bed sheets, Smart Watches, TV Antennas, all sorts of Supplements and pet supplements. .......... All this practice uncovered a formula to inspiring strangers on the internet to solve their problems today. So we could easily bounce to any niche. ..........

After a while, I’m thinking, “what am I doing selling other’s people products?”

.......... So we launched a skincare brand (Brand name withheld for legal purposes) Created 3 VSLs that took us from $0-$40M in sales in 12 months. ...... It was incredible. Were were doing $4m/month by month three. ..... $100,000 per day everyday for 8 months in a row. .......... Assuming all the foundation is in place, the only thing blocking you from a meteoric rise to success is that your ads sucks balls. ........ I am writing new VSLs every single day for the greatest brand on the planet. ......... I am brilliant. I am a genius. I am a marketing master. ......... We are selling a $79/month or $399/yr subscription offering the worlds greatest personal development courses. .......... Winning IS Swinging. Taking Epic Swings at Life is Winning. ...... So in December 2021 I decided to cancel my Christmas home to see my family. And spend 14–16 hour days of white knucking work so we could have a mountain of campaigns to test by the time everybody got back.......... BOOM! All of a sudden we transformed an old webinar campaign into a winning VSL just by editig the story to follow one of our winning VSL formulas. ....... After getting this on Youtube we surpassed the big 6-figure/day milestone and began soaring in the next level of success. ...... I have the phrase “God’s Plan” tattoo’d on my right forearm to help keep myself focused on getting my plans from a higher power.

मेरो जेल अनुभव र नयाँ पुस्ता गोलघरमा राख्नुको अर्थ मृत्युको फैसला सुन्नु मात्रै हुन्थ्यो । हामी गोलघरमा मृत्यु पर्खेर बसेका थियौं । आफूलाई मारिने दिन कुर्दै बसेका थियौं ।

ती तीन मृत्यु, जसले मलाई छोएर गए मैले जीवनमा एक दर्जनभन्दा बढी पटक मृत्युलाई नजिकैबाट नियालेको छु, साक्षात्कार गरेको छु । तीमध्ये तीन वटा घटना आज म सम्झन चाहन्छु ।

आठ मन्त्रालयसहित खड्काको नेतृत्वमा कांग्रेस सरकारमा जाने
मन्त्रिपरिषद् पुनर्गठनको तयारी, माओवादी केन्द्रका केही मन्त्रीको जिम्मेवारी हेरफेर हुने कांग्रेसले ८ मन्त्रालय पाउने सहमति भएको छ भने माओवादीले ५ र जसपाका साथै नेकपा एकीकृत समाजवादीले २–२ वटा मन्त्रालय पाउने गरी छलफल अघि बढेको छ । साझेदार दलका अन्य साना दललाई १–१ मन्त्रालय दिने बताइएको छ ।

Should the US ban TikTok? Can it? A cybersecurity expert explains the risks the app poses and the challenges to blocking it ........ What data privacy risk does TikTok pose? What could the Chinese government do with data collected by the app? Is its content recommendation algorithm dangerous? And is it even possible to ban an app? ....... every few years a new mobile app that becomes popular raises issues of security, privacy and data access........ most apps collect data that the companies use in part to fund their operations. This revenue typically comes from targeting users with ads based on the data they collect. The questions this use of data raises are: Does the app need all this data? What does it do with the data? And how does it protect the data from others? ........ what makes TikTok different from the likes of Pokemon-GO, Facebook or even your phone itself? ......... Overall, the company is not particularly transparent about its practices. .......... If most apps collect data, why is the U.S. government worried about TikTok? First, they worry about the Chinese government accessing data from its 150 million users in the U.S. There is also a concern about the algorithms used by TikTok to show content. .......... The Chinese government is known for playing the long game, and data is power, so if it is collecting data, it could take years to learn how it benefits China. ....... The Justice Department is investigating TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, for using the app to monitor U.S. journalists. The Chinese government has an extensive history of hacking U.S. government agencies and corporations, and much of that hacking has been facilitated by social engineering –

the practice of using data about people to trick them into revealing more information

. ........... TikTok and most social media apps have algorithms designed to learn a user’s interests and then try to adjust the content so the user will continue to use the app. ......... The algorithm could be biased in a way that influences a population to believe certain things. There are numerous allegations that TiKTok’s algorithm is biased and can reinforce negative thoughts among younger users, and be used to affect public opinion. It could be that the algorithm’s manipulative behavior is unintentional, but there is concern that the Chinese government has been using or could use the algorithm to influence people. ............ an absolute ban will be tough to enforce. ........ By some estimates, the Chinese government has already collected personal information on at least 80% of the U.S. population via various means. So a ban might limit the damage going forward to some degree, but the Chinese government has already collected a significant amount of data. .......... The Chinese government also has access – along with anyone else with money – to the large market for personal data ............ the most significant risks are to people in power, whether it is political power or within a company. Their data and information could be used to gain access to other data or potentially compromise the organizations they are associated with. ........... families should have conversions about TikTok and other social media platforms and how they can be detrimental to mental health. These conversations should focus on how to determine if the app is leading you down an unhealthy path.

Xi and Putin pledge to shape a new world order as the Chinese leader leaves Russia with no peace in sight for Ukraine The White House said China’s position was not impartial and urged Beijing to pressure Russia to withdraw from Ukraine. ....... as Xi departed he told Putin: “Now there are changes that haven’t happened in 100 years. When we are together, we drive these changes.” ...... “I agree,” Putin said, to which Xi responded: “Take care of yourself dear friend, please.” ......

He’s the World’s Most Popular Leader. Beware. With approval ratings at home of about 78 percent, Modi is far and away the most popular major leader in the world today ....... Sweden’s V-Dem Institute, in a new report, listed India not as a democracy but as an “electoral autocracy” ranking 108th among 179 countries in its electoral democracy index. ...... India used to be a correspondent’s dream, echoing with the sound and fury of strongly held opinions. But today people often clam up when I ask about Modi. Reporters Without Borders now ranks India a dismal 150th in press freedom among 180 countries worldwide. ....... in 1977, Gen. Mohammad Zia ul-Haq seized power and engineered a wave of conservative Muslim nationalism that still tears Pakistan apart. ........ India still has a federal system that gives power to the states, and that constrains Modi. ......... Modi’s extraordinary popularity rests not just on demagogy but also on real accomplishments ....... A national survey in 2020-21 was released this month and found that 21 percent of rural households still had no access to any toilet — but that’s a significant improvement from almost 60 percent having no access in 2012. ........ some 600,000 Indians die annually from this indoor air pollution ........ Modi has pushed a digital identification and payment system that brings villagers into the banking system. ........ he is very good at economic development and infrastructure projects ........ the state of Gujarat. There he was a pro-business leader who oversaw strong economic growth .

Modi’s Final Assault on India’s Press Freedom Has Begun. has already put severe pressure on India’s once-rambunctious press, with journalists surveilled and jailed and the government using strong-arm tactics against media outlets to ensure favorable coverage. But in January, draft amendments to digital media guidelines were introduced that would essentially allow the government to block any content it doesn’t like. ........ In other words, the rest of India may end up looking a lot like Kashmir. ........ Journalists are routinely summoned by the police, interrogated and threatened with charges such as income tax violations or terrorism or separatism. Several prominent journalists have been detained or sentenced to jail terms. ......... In late 2021, I spoke to a young journalist, Sajad Gul, who was being harassed for his reporting. Fearing arrest, he told me that he slept fully dressed each night and kept his shoes at his bedside — unusual in Kashmir, where shoes are customarily removed before entering a home — in case he had to make a quick getaway. He was arrested in January of last year and remains in custody. Many journalists self-censor or have simply quit. Fearing arrest, some have fled into exile overseas. The Indian government has put at least 20 others on no-fly lists to prevent them from leaving the country. ........ At least 19 journalists were killed in Kashmir between 1990 and 2018....... Still, Kashmiri journalism flowered. Newspapers and news websites proliferated, and a new generation of talented young investigative journalists brought a fresh eye to Kashmir’s problems with well-researched public-interest reporting that often boldly took on the government.

Chaos Breaks Out as Imran Khan Makes Court Appearance Supporters of the former prime minister of Pakistan have repeatedly clashed this week with the security forces, keeping the country on edge. “Show you can fight,” he told supporters. ....... The court allowed Mr. Khan, who claimed he could not enter the judicial building because of the chaos outside, to register his appearance from inside his vehicle. ....... is facing dozens of court cases on charges that include terrorism and corruption. Several arrest warrants have been issued against him after he repeatedly refused to appear in court in Islamabad. The court hearing he attempted to join on Saturday involved accusations of illegally profiting from accepting state gifts, and of concealing his assets. ......... angry crowds of Mr. Khan’s supporters that have camped out outside his home and effectively taken on the role of his personal body guards. ........ The political scene has become a game of clashing dynasties that take turns falling in and out of favor with the country’s powerful military establishment, with the victors wielding the country’s justice system against their rivals. ............. the state has brought dozens of court cases against Mr. Khan. He and his supporters have characterized the accusations as a misuse of the justice system by the government of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif and by the military in order to sideline Mr. Khan from politics.

The Lessons Not Learned From Iraq Twenty years on, the war still shapes policy—mostly for the worse...... “War is a stern teacher,” Thucydides wrote nearly 2,500 years ago. Since then, great nations have often sought to learn lessons from the wars they waged, especially bad or stupid wars. But the same can’t really be said of the United States, which invaded Iraq 20 years ago as of Sunday. (March 19, 2003, marked the start of the “shock and awe” air war.) ........ Considering its long-term effects, the Iraq invasion amounted to one the most consequential strategic misdirections in U.S. history. Yet there has been very little discussion about why that is—and why what happened two decades ago is not a history lesson at all but rather part of an ongoing class in current events. ........ The hubris and excess of the Iraq invasion—a later iteration of the “reckless audacity” that Thucydides, the Greek historian, ascribed to the warmongering Greeks in the Peloponnesian War—are still with us today, shaping our times. The aftereffects of Iraq dramatically reduced the position of the United States in the Middle East, most recently opening the way to China’s brokering of Iran-Saudi Arabia rapprochement. The unnecessary diversion into Iraq—and the drain on U.S. resources and attention that resulted from it—set the stage for Washington’s 20-year failure in Afghanistan, which left U.S. President Joe Biden humiliated when he precipitously withdrew all U.S. troops, declaring in August 2021 that he was putting an end to U.S. efforts “to remake other countries.” .
