Pennock is the author of "Advertising Sin and Sickness: The Politics of ...

We shall be at the mercy of the shopkeepers… What is more we must pay dearer for all these ... market research, surveys and trends

A New Ad: Norton Defends Against Potential Sexism
On Thursday, Jane Norton released a new ad responding to Ken Buck’s statement that Colorado voters should support him because he does “not wear high heels.” While it seems that Buck intended the statement as a joke, news outlets began to take it seriously, and the Norton campaign has decided that it should fight back. Norton’s new ad plays Ken Buck’s slip up twice, for emphasis. It quotes Buck at the Independence Institute's Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Party, as responding to the question, “why should we vote for you?” with “because I do not wear high heels.” Buck ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

WikiAnswers - How does drugs affect the families in america
With more single mothers and an absent father and more divorces this is difficult enough on children. Some children feel they are responsible for the divorce and often parents don't take the time to explain to them that it is not their fault. Children to teens have more peer pressure and magazines, movies, TV, the Internet don't always help their self esteem or, in many cases confuses the teen as to how to act and how to look rather than the truth. Some teens start out with lesser drugs such as Marijuana, but what most teens or parents do realize is that Marijuana is much stronger than it use to be or could be laced ...
Should I quit Americorps? | Ask MetaFilter

The reason for taking a VISTA position, therefore, is not the pay, but rather the job experience and the opportunity to do meaningful work to help the poor. Unfortunately, I am not getting much of that experience or doing much of that work, and I am disrespected to boot. The projects I have been assigned are poorly thought-out, and the people in my ...
