Helium and Haiti Relief Scams

Just catching up on what might be happening at Helium these days and found a number of articles are being written to support Haiti relief efforts.

I'm really concerned that this is just another grab by Helium to bilk unsuspecting writers out of their time and effort, for little or no payment at all. All this under the umbrella of relief for grief stricken Haiti survivors.

Even just by clicking on these articles, Helium makes a bunch of money from advertising. Judging by how much they pay their writers, I suspect less than a single penny for each article goes to rebuild the devastated country.

About Me

Bread and pastry baking is an art which requires the freshest ingredients, exact proportions, proper techniques and strict attention to the rules of food chemistry. For example, using pastry flour (low in gluton) to bake bread (which requires high gluton to rise) will result in failure. Dry ingredients should always be weighed, so you'll have to invest in a small (4 lb/1814.4 gram) kitchen scale.
