What is wrong with my website?

what is wrong with my website (please don’t be rude)
why isn’t it a good affiliate marketing website for

please give me helpful tips and pointers


I'm 16 why can't I get a job?

I am 16, I live in Ontario, Canada. I have had several online business ventures, have considerable experience in customer satisfaction and solving problems. I have strong computer and communication skills. I don’t have much experience working under someone, just lawn cutting for a company that I can’t get a reference from. All of that is on my resume.

On the rare occasion that I get an interview, I always show up in business clothing such as dress pants, shined leather shoes, dress shirt and tie. It seems the harder I try, the less likely it is for me to get a job.

I would start a full time summer business but I am lacking capital. I don’t have anyone that can lend me money and can’t get a loan.

I just got turned down today for another job that I had an interview for on wednesday. I watch all of my friends around me getting jobs from doing next to nothing. I try so hard but no one will cut me some slack. I can’t even get a job at a damn grocery store for crying out loud.

I think it has to be something wrong with my resume. Can you please critique it and make annotations?

What do you think of Amazon suing the state of North Carolina over customer data?? (taxing online purchases…?

Last year, North Carolina passed a law that required out-of-sate retailers to collect sales tax in the state if they have marketing affiliates within the state. Amazon responded by ending its affiliate program in North Carolina and currently doesn’t collect sales tax in the state.

Amazon contends in the suit that it routinely provides the Revenue Department with "voluminous information" about its sales to North Carolina as part of routine audits of the company’s compliance with sales and use tax laws. The information includes the date and total price of each transaction, the city, county and ZIP code to which each item was shipped and Amazon’s standard product code for each item, which allows officials to see the description of every product purchased.

In March, however, the Revenue Department threatened to hold a civil contempt hearing for Amazon if the company doesn’t also turn over the names and addresses of anybody in North Carolina who has purchased goods off its website since August 2003, according to the suit. The company said that amounts to nearly 50 million purchases.

"If Amazon is forced to comply with this demand, the disclosure will invade the privacy and violate the First Amendment rights of Amazon and its customers on a massive scale," the suit states. "The (Revenue Department) does not need personally identifiable information
about Amazon’s customers in order to audit Amazon’s compliance with state tax laws. All it needs to know is what items Amazon sold to North Carolina customers and what they paid, and Amazon has already provided that information."
