    (PRBuzz.com) April 30, 2013 -- A huge majority of those polled believe it will take the U.S. economy many more years to recover from the financial crisis, according to a new survey conducted by MoneyJournal.com. An astounding 40% of respondents to the poll say it will take six more years or longer for the economy to heal.

    The Global Financial Crisis, started on Wall Street with U.S. bankers making mortgages to anyone who could sign their name on a home loan application, will take four or five more years to overcome, 23% of those polled said. The two categories make up almost two out of three surveyed in the online poll taken by Money Journal, which regularly surveys visitors on important issues related to money to help consumers better handle their financial futures. For full details on the latest poll visit MoneyJournal.com

    Before the financial crisis more than 80% of U.S. households invested in stocks, bonds or other financial investments on Wall Street. A new wave of investing has returned since the stock market hit new record highs. Studies, however, show consumers grew weary over the markets and are holding back from investing in the greatest numbers since the Great Depression.

    Expert business journalists, including specialists in stocks, bonds, real estate and banking provide detailed reports and forecasts for consumers to better protect themselves in the world of finance and save money at Money Journal.com. There are lots of ways to save money on all sorts of products and services provided through the website on everything from a home mortgage to power bills to the price of a tank of gas.

    Gilbert, SC (PR Buzz) April 30, 2013 -- The It's Smarter To Barter Company launches it's new online trading platform. The company has been involved with industrial bartering for over 10 years with some of their most seasoned employees and staff having personally operated several Bartering Companies.

    The Bartering Idea has been around since the beginning of time. Yet since the arrival of paper and coin currency, direct trading in between consumers has greatly fallen by the wayside.

    Bartering between companies as part of a commercial trading platform is currently how most traded products are bartered. However if you didn't own a big firm with access to a lot of goods and or services to trade it merely didn't make good sense to become part of a "Barter Group" for that one-off type item you might have.

    So It's Smarter To Barter launched a website so that normal people, not just corporations could trade items or services for other products or services that they need. The company created an international trading platform but still individually friendly, fun and easy to use!

    When times are tough, like the times we are in now, people want to get creative in locating methods of obtaining the items or services they need without spending cash to do so. We are seeing this even in our popular culture with hit shows like "Pawn Stars" and "Barter Kings" on our TVs. Neighborhood Face Book trading groups have emerged in all the major cities.

    The It's Smarter To Barter trading platform allows someone to create a free account and list for trade items they are no longer using. Other users will see those items and offer something in trade for the item. Individuals then are able to trade items without having to exchange any cash.

    The platform makes it easy to trade anything from inexpensive consumer items to cars, boats and property. Services and vacations can even be traded.

    It's Smarter To Barter new web site is helping to make the art of consumer trading popular again.

    About Its Smarter To Barter

    The team at It's Smarter To Barter, with over a hundred years of bartering experience on staff, are dedicated to making an easy to use platform for trading and bartering goods and services between individuals.

    (PRBuzz.com) April 30, 2013 -- Prolexic, the global leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services, announced today that Distributed Reflection and Amplification Denial of Service (DrDoS) attacks have grown increasingly popular with malicious actors as the number of vulnerable network appliances and servers has grown.

    While DrDoS attack tactics have been used successfully for more than a decade, their popularity and effectiveness has increased during the past year. Specific DrDoS attacks target IP-based devices - printers, cameras, routers, hubs, sensors and other network devices - to take advantage of inherent vulnerabilities in standard network protocols, coopt the devices, and transform them into malicious bots.

    "Protocol reflection attacks are a serious problem, but system administrators can help protect their organization and the Internet community by taking steps to avoid participating in these types of DrDoS attacks," said Stuart Scholly, Prolexic President. "Unfortunately, the protocols were written with functionality, not security, in mind. The Internet used to be a safer place than it is now."

    DrDoS attacks using these protocols can be difficult to trace back to the malicious actor because they often involve spoofing, or faking, the origin of the attack.

    In the new DrDoS white paper, the Prolexic Security Engineering & Response Team (PLXsert) explains how malicious actors leverage three common network protocols inherent in network servers and devices:

    • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), used to communicate with IP-based devices, such as routers
    • Network Time Protocol (NTP), used to synchronize time and date information across the network
    • Character Generation Protocol (CHARGEN), used to test and debug network connections

    The white paper, second in the DrDoS series, explains the protocol vulnerabilities and how they are used in DDoS attacks. It also identifies actions system administrators can take to reduce, or mitigate, the vulnerability of their network devices and servers.

    The SNMP, NTP, CHARGEN Reflection Attacks white paper by PLXsert is available free of charge at www.prolexic.com/drdos.

    About the Prolexic Security Engineering & Response Team (PLXsert)

    PLXsert monitors malicious cyber threats globally and analyzes DDoS attacks using proprietary techniques and equipment. Through data forensics and post attack analysis, PLXsert is able to build a global view of DDoS attacks, which is shared with customers. By identifying the sources and associated attributes of individual attacks, the PLXsert team helps organizations adopt best practices and make more informed, proactive decisions about DDoS threats.

    Details of Prolexic's DDoS mitigation activities and insights into the latest tactics, types, targets and origins of global DDoS attacks are provided in quarterly reports published by the company. A complimentary copy of Prolexic's most recent Global DDoS Attack Report is available at www.prolexic.com/attackreports.

    About Prolexic

    Prolexic is the world's largest, most trusted Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation provider. Able to absorb the largest and most complex attacks ever launched, Prolexic restores mission-critical Internet-facing infrastructures for global enterprises and government agencies within minutes. Ten of the world's largest banks and the leading companies in e-Commerce, SaaS, payment processing, travel/hospitality, gaming and other at-risk industries rely on Prolexic to protect their businesses.

    New York, NY (PRBuzz.com) April 30, 2013 -- Military Gun Supply, a company dedicated in providing various military firearms, surplus guns, magazines and ammunition, is now offering a bump stock for the AR-15 the Slide Fire SSAR 15. The company is currently offering the exclusive stock in two models the original OGR and a new SBS design. Bump firing stocks are often demanded amongst recreational shooters however these specific stocks require precise designing and advanced security features. This latest bump stock designed by Slide Fire Solutions has been complimented by many consumers and critics alike, some of whom have even stated that the technology behind the stock's creation is groundbreaking.

    The media spokesperson of Military Gun Supply quoted on the provision of their latest bump stock for AR-15 rifles, "Bump firing or rapid firing without making a rifle fully automatic is a completely different form of shooting and is often considered as the most exciting style. However there are 2 main reasons why creating a bump stock for rifles is often difficult. One of them is the quick burst of recoils that come along with it which requires a sophisticated design that focuses on safety. The second challenge is the loss of precision, usually aiming down the sight while bump firing is very difficult and most of time not at all possible. Slide Fire Solutions have come up with a one of a kind bump stock for AR-15 rifles which tackles these two challenges. The Slide Fire SSAR -15 allows the shooter to bump fire safely and accurately."

    The company is offering the bump stock at a manufacturer's life time warranty covering defects in material and workmanship. Bump firing is usually a style where an individual shoots from the hip. However the Slide Fire SSAR 15 now adds another dimension to bump firing by making aiming down the sight a possibility, which is the main reason why the bump stock design is considered revolutionary. The stock is available for both right handed and left handed shooters and an upgrade to new SBS model is also possible for additional $10.

    Machine Gun Supply has gained immense popularity amongst shooting enthusiasts mainly due to their comprehensive provision of guns, stocks, accessories and ammunitions. The company is also one of the first providers of latest products, such as the Slide Fire SSAR 15.

    Maroochydore, QLD (PR Buzz) April 30, 2013 -- Technology virgin overcomes cyber confusion to self publish a novel and reveals what works and what doesn't for getting noticed on-line.

    Have you pitched your book to dozens of publishers and have nothing but a drawer full of rejection letters to show for it?

    Creative writer, Robin Storey, author of the newly released How Not To Commit Murder overcame her aversion to technology and her own self-doubt to tackle the on-line world and can now claim independence from the soul-destroying route of traditional publishing.

    Robin, who has been writing novels for over 10 years commented "I will no longer have to dread waiting for the mail only to read yet another rejection letter. I can't tell you how liberating that feels".

    In following the self-publishing route, Robin taught herself:

    1. How to write for the growing on-line readership market
    2. Why your own skills and self reliance are your greatest assets
    3. What you need to know about marketing on-line before you write word number one
    4. The one thing you should never do (and it's not what you think)
    5. How to format your work for Kindle, Createspace and Smashwords
    6. Why technology is your friend and how to make it your best friend

    The novel is about an Australian conman, Reuben Littlejohn, who's determined to go straight until he discovers a plot to kill his parole officer, with whom he is madly in lust. In writing this novel for the on-line market Robin found she could exercise greater creative writing freedom while at the same time maintaining the integrity expected of traditional publishers. As far as Robin is concerned, this is the best of both worlds.

    About Robin Storey

    Robin Storey is a freelance and creative writer living on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia. Robin has published a number of short stories and her novel How Not To Commit Murder is currently available on Amazon. Robin's next novel, Perfect Sex, a comedy romance, will be available on Amazon in August 2013. She is an active member of the Sunshine Coast Literary Association and in her spare time can be found in the gym or strolling along the Mooloolaba waterfront.

    (PRBuzz.com) May 1, 2013 -- Travel and tourism in Argentina accounted for 10.5% of the national GDP and 9.9% of the country's total employment in 2011. In terms of domestic tourism, 2012 proved to be an excellent year recording 48.2 million domestic travelers - an increase of 8.3% over 2011. International departures also increased by 11.6% in 2012 over the previous year. One of the key reasons for the increase in domestic and outbound volumes was an increase in overall spending power as the country's economy continued to recover. A high inflation rate within the country and the exchange rate of the Argentine Peso has also made it cheaper for Argentina's residents to holiday abroad.

    Key Highlights

    * Tourism is expected to be one of Argentina's best performing sectors over the next decade, with its contribution to the economy growing at 2.5% per annum. Tourism will play an important role in the economic development of the country by developing wealth and generating employment. Consequently, to promote tourism, the government has launched a new tourism marketing plan for 2012-2015.
    * During 2012, Argentina welcomed 5.7 million overseas visitors, a decline of 1.2% on 2011 figures. However, inbound expenditure in 2012 registered growth of 10.0% over 2011. Over the forecast period, the volume of inbound visitors is expected to increase at a CAGR of 4.19%.
    * In 2011, an ash cloud from a volcanic eruption in Chile led to the cancelation of many flights, which resulted in disrupted volumes of inbound and domestic tourism in Argentina.
    * Sports tourism is an important contributor to the tourism industry in Argentina. Various sporting events are organized both in Argentina and its neighboring countries which attract a large number of tourists. For example, Brazil's hosting of the Football World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016 is expected to have a knock-on benefit on Argentine tourism.
    * The level of capital investment in tourism has increased during the review period. In 2008, investment in tourism valued ARS119.9 billion (US$38.2 billion); this increased to ARS217.4 billion (US$47.5 billion) in 2012 as a result of measures taken by the government to promote the tourism sector.
    * With the legalization of same sex marriage in Argentina, the number of couples visiting the country has increased, and is providing a new customer base for the tourism sector.
    * Well developed and extensive transport infrastructure is one of the most important reasons behind the growth of domestic tourism in Argentina. Reduced travel time and low transportation costs play a key role in spurring domestic tourism growth.
    * Tourists from South and Central American countries accounted for 74.6% of total inbound tourist arrivals in 2012. European countries accounted for the second-largest share of arrivals with 13.0%. The large number of sporting events, festivals, and conferences organized in Argentine cities attract huge numbers of leisure and business tourists to the country.
    * Ministro Pistarini International Airport, also known as the Ezeiza International Airport, is the largest airport in Argentina based on the number of passengers handled. It handles the majority of international traffic, and caters to more than 30 air carriers from around the world. The airport serves as the hub for two of the major airlines of the country: Aerolineas Argentinas and LAN Argentina.
    * In order to attract customers and gain market share during tough economic conditions, Argentine airline companies introduced low cost carriers. The airline industry's total revenue during the review period recorded a CAGR of 7.34%, but the revenue of low cost carriers recorded a higher CAGR of 19.09%.
    * The car rental market increased steadily during the review period. The market recorded its slowest growth rate of 7.1% in 2009 due to a decrease in domestic and inbound tourist volumes. The value of the car rental market increased from ARS194.9 million (US$61.9 million) in 2008 to ARS370.9 million (US$81.9) in 2012, primarily driven by an increase in the number of business travelers.
    * The hotel market in Argentina was negatively impacted by the financial crisis. In 2009, total revenue, including room revenue and non-room revenue, declined at a rate of 18.4%, while revenue per available room (RevPar) declined at a rate of 22.8%. However, the market recovered quickly with an improvement in global economic conditions. Total revenue increased at an annual rate of 27.1% in 2010 due to an increase in domestic and inbound tourist volumes, which in turn increased the demand for hotels.

    (PRBuzz.com) May 1, 2013 -- Emerging Opportunities in Finland's Cards and Payments Industry: Market Size, Trends and Drivers, Strategies, Products and Competitive Landscape

    Despite having one of the smallest populations in the Eurozone, Finland is ahead of the rest of Europe in terms of card awareness and usage levels. It has the highest usage of card payments in terms of transactions per inhabitant, with the average usage per capita exceeding that of the UK and the Netherlands. Younger consumers are more comfortable with various types of electronic payment methods, and typically use more than one payment method when paying at the point of sale (POS), although debit cards are the predominant method. The overall card industry exhibited nominal growth during the review period (2008-2012) at a CAGR of 3.86%, rising from 13.7 million cards in 2008 to 15.6 million in 2012. The industry is expected to register slight growth over the forecast period with a CAGR of 1.64%, rising from 15.9 million cards in 2013 to 17.1 million in 2017. Growth in the Finnish cards and payments industry is expected to be driven by growth in the retail industry, increasing demand for prepaid cards, a better regulatory framework, an increasing market for online and mobile commerce, and a positive economic outlook

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Key Highlights

    * The increasing capabilities of smartphone devices, an exponential rise in mobile device applications and falling prices have been instrumental in driving mobile commerce. According to a survey conducted by AddValue on behalf of operator DNA in 2013, 60% of Finns own a smartphone, 76% own a laptop and 18% own a tablet. Factors driving growth in m-commerce are lower prices, improved search engines, price comparison sites and the rising penetration of smartphones, leading to the growth of the cards and payments industry in Finland.
    * Contactless and NFC payments are also being introduced in Finland. K-Plussa, the largest and most-diverse loyalty program to provide benefits to customers, launched a contactless card in February 2012. The card has, thus far, been used by more than 300,000 K-Plussa customers.
    * Elisa, one of the largest mobile networks in Finland, in association with MasterCard and the student-owned benefit and discount card Lyyra, issued prepaid NFC stickers to students in the third quarter of 2012. These stickers were issued to more than 100,000 students and can be used in college canteens and at other stores where contactless terminals are installed.
    * The growing market for online trade in Finland is one of the primary factors responsible for the expansion of the country's cards and payments industry. E-commerce sales increased from EUR8.85 billion in 2009 to EUR10.4 billion in 2011. This growth can be attributed to benefits offered by online retail such as low cost and convenience, and promotional offers and discounts, and is expected to further increase debit and credit card ownership.
