Researchers have recently discovered gamblers like money, scholars spend lots of time reading and fishermen are often on boats. That kind of thing happens a lot, actually, if you actually look at the ads. Mind you, keyword matching has never yet given me a single ad I was interested in, but I still occasionally look at the ads because of gems like these: - I'm looking up the lyrics of a goth kinda song, you know, about death and suicide, and it mentions eternal sleep. An ad on the side dutifully offers to sell me sleeping pills. (Not only morbid, but I really don't think that they want to become known as the company ...
in 1952. Launched as a comic book before it became a magazine, it was widely imitated and influential, impacting not only satirical media but the entire cultural landscape of the 20th century. The last surviving title from the notorious and critically acclaimed EC Comics line, the magazine offers satire on all aspects of life and pop culture , politics, entertainment, and public figures. Its format is divided into a number of recurring segments such as TV and movie parodies , as well as freeform articles. Mad' s mascot, Alfred E. Neuman , is typically the focal point of the magazine's cover, with his face often ...
The Vainglorious Atrocity: Strings, Brands, and Unhealthy ...
scathing criticisms, gleeful exhortations, and overwraught self-indulgent drivel from a modern rock guitarist poking the proverbial beehives of contemporary life. Are  you seeing it? When I wrote about Strings last time I began a somewhat embarassing but elucidating stroll down Memory Lane. I discovered for myself that I had a brain full of subliminal branding messages from major string brands, and tons of subsequently unfounded opinions about their products. I had, there is no doubt, been brainwashed in that most American way - advertising. I suspect I'm very much not alone here and many of us feel the same way. So I ... market research, surveys and trends
Jared Harris knows to stick to the script - - July ...
The British are staying! The British are staying! One of the most interesting, and welcome, developments in the fourth season of “Mad Men,” which starts Sunday, is that Lane Pryce, the foreigner who appeared last season as a rotten olive in the advertising firm’s martini, has partnered with his former nemeses to form an upstart group that must prove themselves all over again. The same needn’t be said for Jared Harris, who plays Pryce. Instead of coasting on the name of his famous father, Richard Harris, the actor has been celebrated for his Shakespearean work on stage as well as his diverse characters in more than 40 films, ... market research, surveys and trends


ANA/Forrester Survey on TV Advertising: Nobody Goes There Anymore ...
A special note on Forrester: I’m biased to not think much of their research:  since the early 1990s they predicted Microsoft would win the online wars (but somehow initially ignored AOL, then Google) and also basically predicted that by now DVRs would completely destroy television advertising. Universal desires: less clutter, more relevance!  Just like you and me, advertisers want the same thing. I’m shocked. SHOCKED! On the good news front, only 19% of the respondents believed the 30 second spot would be dead in 10 years.   It’s nice to know that 81% of the respondents aren’t  dumbasses. As long as ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Survey: Teens' Cell Phones Indispensible - CBS News
Cell phones have become almost as important to American teens as the clothes they wear, according to a nationwide survey of teenagers released last week. The wireless trade association CTIA and Harris Interactive surveyed some 2,000 teens across the country and learned that teens feel that cell phones have become a vital part of their identities. They also believe that they can gauge a peer's popularity or status by the phone he or she uses. Findings of the survey were presented on Friday at the CTIA Fall 2008 trade show in San Francisco. Trip Hawkins, CEO of Digital Chocolate, a mobile games publisher, moderated a panel ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
A funny thing happened on the way to a post-racial America
Whoever came up with the insipid term "post-racial" ought to be forced to sit down and read aloud the vile commentary that pours into any newsroom after it publishes or airs a story on race. That would quickly cure the urge to insist we've finally reached that harmonious other side of the rainbow. We certainly saw no such evidence in recent days, even in the actions of Barack Obama's White House, which is supposed to be living proof that Americans are "over" race. Administration officials acted as discreditably as the nation's most storied civil rights organization, the NAACP, in its ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Twitter and Facebook - the new way to communicate with large corporations
Many of these stories end up being resolved either through a Tweet to the company concerned or a message on Facebook.  It's quite funny how many "complaints" are Tweeted or posted on Facebook pages. The sad truth is, calling large corporations no longer works - customer service reps all too often follow their book of rules rather than using their initiatives.  This is why I believe having a Twitter or Facebook account is beneficial.   To large corporations, social networking is a wonderful way of advertising for next to nothing.  It can also backfire if their standards are not up to scratch. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

In Search of African America: One Collector's Experience. An ...
The experience of the James Hicks collection is a journey of the heart and mind into the history of the African American race. The collection tells the story of the indoctrination of racism into American culture. Expect the exhibit to be uncomfortable because of what it reveals and the emotions it evokes. This is the importance of the collection. The rare historical pieces document the first hand experience of the Negro condition while the images on the memorabilia introduced into White society demonstrate the stereotypes used to perpetuate racism. The collection records the material culture that grew out of the history of ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Funny stories. What makes a perfect candidate? | LinkedIn Answers ...
We recently had a Russian guy living in The Netherlands (at a 1 hour commuting distance) on offer at a large international company. In the final stages some emails were exchanged between the candidate and our recruitment company. I have copied parts of the last three emails below. _______ Dear Logical People, Your client's position looks only in part as a dream job to me. The technical stuff is very much there. Would the team be able to make use of my oversized ambition and somewhat primadonnish attitude - only time would tell. The compensation offered is as I said only solid. I will (probably futilly) seek an exceptional one.
