Alexander was born in Elba, Neb., is one of 13 children. He played Semi-Pro Ball in youth, signing his first professional contract at age 20 in 1907 for $ 50 month. He had a good first season, but his career almost ended when he was struck by thrown ball, baserunning . The incident set his career back, he had already mastered in 1910, became a star pitcher again, and was sold to the Philadelphia Phillies for $ 750.
Alexander made his debut in Philadelphia before the season 1911 City Series. Alexander defeated five innings, no-hit, no run baseball against the Athletics. He wanted to make it an official Major League debut on April 15, 1911 . He will be joined on the Phillies in the same year spectacle Bill Killefer, who later became a favorite of Alexander the receiver, catching him in 250 games .
In his rookie year, Alexander led the league with 28 victories (modern-day rookie record), 31 complete games, 367 innings pitched and seven shutouts, while finishing second in strikeout and fourth in ERA. From 1912 to 1920, Alexander led the league in ERA 5 times (1915, 1916, 1917, 1919 and 1920), won 5 times (1914-17, 1920), innings 6 times (1912, 1914-17, 1920), , striking out 6 times (1912, 1914-1917, 1920), games, 5 times (1914-1917, 1920), and five times in shutouts (1915, 1916 [single season record 16], 1917, 1919). He won pitching’s Triple Crown in 1915, 1916, 1917 and 1920. In 1915, he played an important role in leading Phillies their first pennant, and he broke a 4-1 record beating.
After 1917 season, the Phillies have sold Alexander Cubs, allegedly for fear that he would have been lost to the army in World War I, but as Phillies owner William Baker later confessed, “I need the money.” Of course, Alexander was drafted, (citation needed) and spent most of the season 1918 in France as an artillery officer, where he suffered a concussion, partial hearing loss, and worse, and convulsions. Always a drunk, Alexander hit the bottle particularly hard after the war. He still gave Chicago several successful years, however, and grabbed another pitching triple crown in 1920. Finally tiring of his increasing drunkenness and insubordination, Cubs sold him to the Cardinals in mid-season in 1926 for refusing to price .
Cardinals won the National League pennant this year and met with the New York Yankees in the World Series, where Alexander was his best moment. He broke a complete victory in Game 2 and Game 6. By Bob O’Farrell team in the glory of his time, after the match 6 wins, Alexander was able to drink all night and still feeling the effects when he was sent into the field. Alexander came to the game in the seventh inning of game 7, after starting Jesse Hines has developed blisters with the Cardinals ahead 3-2, bases loaded and 2 out. Facing Yankee hitter Tony Lazzeri, Alexander hit him, and then held the Yankees scoreless for two innings to preserve the victory and give St. Louis the championship. He is one of the last 20-win season, the Cardinals in 1927, but his continued drinking, finally made it in. He left Major League Baseball after a brief return to the Phillies in 1930 and pitched for the house of David until 1938.
Alexander attended three games in 1950 in the World Series Yankee Stadium, where he saw the Phillies play the Yankees. He died less than a month later on November 4, 1950 in St. Paul, Nebraska, at age 63.
Alexander was born in the first term of U.S. President Grover Cleveland.
Newspapers often mentioned his full name when writing about him, just in addition to Grover. It is also sometimes referred to as “Alec”, as well as instances when he was in vogue (as in the 1926 World Series), they call him “Alexander the Great.”
The origin of the nickname “Old Pete” is a mystery. It is unclear how often Alexander was publicly known as a nickname during the playing days. In his 1940 baseball card Playball he called the “Pit-Ol ‘”. World Series Baseball, and major, in Lamont, Buchanan, published in 1951, when Alexander died, pp. 106-107, the author refers to “Pete Alexander” and “Ol ‘Pete” in the prosaic way, offering nickname was well known. When he won three hundred and seventy third game on August 10, 1929, a newspaper called him “old” Pete, pointing out that the nickname was in public circulation. (Notes of baseball history, according to Deutsch, Cohen, Johnson and oil, Bobbs-Merrill, 1975, p. 131).
His nickname amongst old friends of the family in Nebraska, was “Dod”. (See “Alexander Grover and bride People Home Visit”, Paul Phonograph, St. Paul, Neb., April 24, 1919)
Alexander was dedicated in 1952 biopic Winning Team, in which he played Ronald Reagan. Baseball commentator Bill James called the film “a terrible movie, the movie Reader’s Digest”, a reduction in events in the life of Alexander in clichés. “Nevertheless, Alexander honored to be a namesake of the president of the United States and as depicted in the film actor who later became president. At Warner Bros. ‘insistence, the word “epilepsy” is not mentioned in the film.
The block-letter “P” in 1915 the form of the season, was sacked Phillies in 2001 to honor Phyllis Alexander’s career.

Before we start, let me tell you the way it is:
Everybody can't make $5,000 to $10,000 a month doing affiliate marketing. There is too much competition.
There is no easy money that will fall into your lap without you doing anything. (And in case there was any easy money I would keep that information to myself and not write it in an article read by thousands of people.)
You will find the best working affiliate opportunities only by finding them yourself, either through testing and research or networking and business development.
With all this said, let me give you the three high-level keys to making money with affiliate programs on the Internet.
1. Google and Overture rock!
The days of free traffic are not completely over, but certainly fading away at a rapid pace. Sure, you can work hard to create pages that score high in the search engines and build sweat equity into a site.
But by paying for clicks and focusing on Google and Overture you will have the top three positions on all search engines that really count on the Internet.
If you want to generate traffic from Yahoo, you need to be on top of Google, it's as simple as that. Overture and especially Google are the best key drivers of qualified traffic on the Internet. Pay-per-click search engines let you quickly test different affiliate offers and new landing pages on your site. When it works, you can scale. Stay away from top competitive keywords for $1 to $2 per click. Niche marketing on Overture and Google works.
2. Do you have your own email list yet?
Sending offers to your own email list is the true way to build freedom and residual income. Instead of just sending traffic away and hoping for the best, you should have your own email list to which you can send multiple offers.
Use subscription forms on your web site.
Use co-registrations or co-op marketing campaigns.
Buy email lists.
3. Consider starting your own affiliate program and/or your own unique offer.
If you know that each filled out form on your web site generates $0.50 in revenue, would you be willing to pay someone else $0.25 to generate that lead?
Identify companies that pay well for co-registration leads and bundle 3-4 offers together with your own subscription form (for your own email list, remember?).
Find a successful company and recruit new affiliates for them and make a commission on their sales. Brokering deals (unique deals) can make you quite an income.
The bottom line:
What do all these three techniques have in common? It involves paying for traffic in one shape or another. To accelerate your income, you need to invest smartly in advertising. Spend limited amounts of money to test offers. When you find something that works - scale it. And repeat.
To your success!
The importance of usabilityUsability is measure of how easy a website (user interface) is to use. High usability is absolutely crucial for any site to survive. If your site is hard to use, the visitors will leave. If they don't manage to find what they are looking for, they leave. If they get lost on your site, they leave. If it is hard to grasp the information on your site, they leave. And you don't want your visitors to leave do you? At least not until they have done what you want them to do.
A site with good usability will dramatically increase your conversion rate, which means that you send more traffic to your partners and make more money. It is therefore well spent time and money to work on improving the usability on your site.
Improve the usability of your siteThe easiest way to improve your usability is by user testing. You need to find a few users representative for your target audience. An easy way is to ask a few friends to test your site. Once you've found some users you ask them to perform representative tasks on your site. Watch them do it and see what they do easily and what they have problems with. Be careful not to influence the users when they perform the tasks, it will contaminate the results.
After the tests you will probably have identified some problem areas. Fix them and let the users perform the same tasks again. And do this over until they easily can perform the tasks you want them to. In order to avoid having to do a major redesign of your site it is important to start these tests at an early stage, not when you have already built the whole site.
Increased usability gives increased conversionWhen you make your site user friendly, your conversion rate will increase. You produce more leads to your partners and your revenues increase. Thus, working to improve the usability of your site will definitely pay of.
