Anything for Imran

Aamir Khan launched his nephew Imran in the hugely successful Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na. His fondness for his favourite bhanja has been pretty evident since then.

Looks like, the demanding producer is now leaving no stone unturned for the success of his latest venture starring Imran. So much so, that he has made his wife Kiran Rao cut short her trip with her parents in France.

Aamir had planned a success party for their yet unreleased film Delhi Belly. That's a first for sure. However, to celebrate the success of the song DK bose, in a unique marketing venture, the producer thought of throwing a party.

Unfortunately for him, the shoot for Reema Kagti's untitled film had to happen at the same time in Pondicherry. But trust Aamir to make sure everything works smoothly. The actor has called his wife, Kiran Rao back from France where she had been holidaying with her parents to play host for the do.

Our source revealed, "Aamir is aggressively promoting his film Delhi Belly. He came up with this unique idea of having a success party for the song. This is a first in Bollywood. The party is scheduled for Friday.

However, since he is going to be in Pondicherry shooting for Reema Kagti's film, he wanted his wife Kiran Rao to be around to host the party along with UTV. But Kiran was in Europe with her parents. She was supposed to come back next week.

When he called her and asked her to be here for the party, she had no option but to cut her holiday short and return. Aamir himself might just attend the party too for some time."

The source further added, "Bhaag DK Bose, the irreverent number from Delhi Belly is a huge hit with the youth. Aamir wants to cash in on that and promote the film and that's why he came up with this unique idea. Ram Sampat who has composed and sung the song in a grunge rock style, which is again very unique to what we have seen in the recent years in Bollywood, will be seen singing live at the party."

When contacted Aamir Khan confirmed and said, "It is a unique celebration; we are used to celebrating films but not songs. So for the first success party of DK Bose, I wanted one of us to be there for sure. Since my schedule is erratic, I requested Kiran to attend."

Now that's what we call hands-on production. And that, mind you, is a family trait with this particular Khan, it seems.

Sony gets targeted by hackers again

Sony has been hit by a second massive data breach, hackers claim, another potential embarrassment for a company that is struggling to restore its image following the loss of millions of credit card numbers through its PlayStation Network.

The hackers, who call themselves LulzSec, said they pulled off what they described as an elementary attack to highlight Sony’s “disgraceful” security.

“Every bit of data we took wasn’t encrypted. Sony stored over 1,000,000 passwords of its customers in plaintext, which means it’s just a matter of taking it,” LulzSec said in a statement. “They were asking for it.”

 Sony Pictures, a subsidiary of Sony Corporation of America, said it is aware of the LulzSec statement.

“We are looking into these claims,” said Jim Kennedy, executive vice president of global communications for Sony Pictures Entertainment.

The data which includes passwords, email addresses, phone numbers, home addresses, dates of birth was posted to the LulzSec Web site and appeared to be genuine.

Sony is already is facing questions over why it did not inform consumers more quickly after a massive cyber-attack in April targeted credit card information through its PSN and SEO network, compromising more than 100 million user accounts. At the time, experts warned the attack emboldened hackers and made them more willing to pursue sensitive information.

It is unclear who the members of LulzSec are, or where they’re based. The group didn’t immediately reply to emails sent to their Web site’s administrative and technical accounts or to a Twitter message posted to the Web.

The group’s Web site which has a pared-down, 1990s look was only registered on Wednesday, according to an Internet records search. The site’s registrant is listed as being based in the Bahamas. LulzSec recently claimed responsibility for hacking the website of the PBS television network to post a fake story in protest of a recent Frontline investigative news program on WikiLeaks.

For the past two days, the group has been mocking Sony via Twitter and alluding to a hacking operation.

Posts on the microblogging site through an account linked to the group at times chastise “silly
Sony” and “You Sony morons,” saying “everything we have will be published in multiple ways to ensure maximum embarrassment and exposure for (Sony) and their security flaws.”

Keys To Network Marketing

1. Simplicity
The network marketing opportunity must be simple in design so that it is easy to understand and easy to follow.

2. Time efficiency
The network marketing opportunity must facilitate work on a part time or on a full time basis so that one may work on his or her business as much or as little as he or she can and still earn a profit.

3. Net gain
Although some money may have to be invested in order to make real income, a home business based on network marketing must be feasible even for those with very little money to invest.
Everyone knows that money can be made for those who already have money. An internet home based business can provide an opportunity to people in any income bracket provided that he or she has access to a computer

4. Easy for anyone to do
An online home based business should require some basic computer knowledge, but beyond that a home based business based on network marketing must be comprehensible. Even a child should be able to make money with the right home based business.

5. Personal
To run a home based business online is no different from any other business: you must sell yourself if you want to make money. The more you can sell yourself, the more money you can earn and the best way to sell yourself is to be personal with your clients.
Although you can not reach out and shake hands with your clients, there is still a large window of opportunity for you to get to know your clientele on a personal basis through follow up letters, congratulatory letters, phone calls and regular emails to show your continued interest in his or her business.

6. Positive experience
In order to attract potential network marketers to your down line, you must ensure that their business experience is a positive one. Essentially you must sell someone on the idea of becoming a network marketer, but instead of money the individuals in your down line will invest time.
If the experience is negative, surely the individual in your down line will not continue to invest his or her time in your business.

7. Understandable
A network marketing business must be understandable. It must be easy to see why one could make money in such a business. Just as understanding the mechanics of a car makes learning to drive a car virtually effortless, understanding the idea behind network marketing makes it easy to profit in your home business, therefore the idea must be easy to understand.

8. Jump start
Starting anything is slow and network marketing is no exception. Before your car can drive it must overcome an initial force, which requires gas. Once your car has started going, it can continue to travel with no gas input.
Initially a home based business requires time; time to learn how the system works to generate clientele and to generate a down line. Once you understand this, you can keep adding to your clientele list and your down line with very little time input.
To help your own down line overcome this you must help them to jump start their business, offer your support and provide them with leads. Remember when they succeed you to will succeed!

9. Proof
Attracting people to your business requires that you provide proof of the potential to earn. Without proof, you are no more convincing than any other online home business. Provide success stories, report your income and your time invested and don't forgot to tell your down line about your own down falls. No one became successful without a few set backs along the way; that's how we learn.

10. Web page
The obvious way to market you online home business is to design a webpage with free access. Though this may take time, a webpage provides access of your business to people all around the world and it is an inexpensive way to advertise.

11. Feeling of accomplishment
Just like any other job network marketing for your online home business must provide the network marketer with a feeling of accomplishment. People in your down line will rely on this to ensure them that they have made the right choice by choosing to become a network marketer, without this your down line would likely quit.
Make sure that you hand on tools of success that worked for you and provide your down line with good leads. The feeling of accomplishment will always leave your down line hungry for more business, which in turn adds to your income stream.

12. Join
Once you find the most successful network marketing online home business, join it! Start your business today for a better tomorrow because once the power is in your hands and not your employer's your own apathy is the only thing that will hold you back from your dreams.
