an audience (viewers, readers or listeners) to purchase or take some action upon products, ideals, or services. It includes the name of a product or service and how that product or service could benefit the consumer, to persuade a target market to purchase or to consume that particular brand .

The DNC's new John McCain 100 years in Iraq ad | Crooks and Liars
The media rushed to McCain's side to shower him with love and affection after he told an audience that he'd be happy to stay in Iraq for 100 years. He's tried to say that American casulties are his bench mark. Well sir, how many Americans do you consider expendable in Iraq? And how many Iraqi's should die in the process too. Not that they seem to matter in his mind. Heck, it's only their country. Over 60% of America believes it was a bad idea to invade them even after the Petraeus Propaganda Show. In the latestes ABC/WaPo poll 56% of Americans believe we should get out of Iraq even after the media blitz ... market research, surveys and trends

Positive Aging Newsletter » Positivity
We often encounter a poster featuring a wizened senior who says, "Growing old is not for sissies." One implication is, of course, that aging is a tough experience to endure. It is all about decline. And it is in this context that we so often find ourselves asking whether we are OK. Is my memory still ok? Can I still think clearly? Have I lost my stamina? Am I still attractive? The list goes on and on. These questions may seem natural enough, but they are not necessary and they are not good friends. As our family therapist colleagues say, "The problem is the problem." By this they mean that when we start to inquire into our ...

Did Obama take senate oath on Koran or Bible?
This is a good question because I’ve seen a lot of lies plastered around the internet about this. Of course he took his oath of office on a Bible (no matter what that stupid chain letter says). He’s a Christian, not a Muslim. If he was any other religion (Muslim, Pagan, Mormon, Buddhist, etc), he would have no chance of winning. In Minnesota, we elected Keith Ellison, a Muslim to Congress, the first Muslim Congressman ever. He took his oath of office on the Koran. The right wing hate/smear/lie machine figured one black looks just like another to ignorant racists, and Obama has a Muslim sounding name, so ...
