In addition, Washington state lawmakers last year approved a measure directing school districts to develop ...

because kids that age don’t understand that advertising isn’t “real.” Bogusky, whose red-hot agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky handles Burger King (BK)’s account, wrote a surprisingly thoughtful essay on his blog that will be greeted by howls of rage at child specialist agencies such as Wonder Group , C3 BrandMarketing and The Geppetto Group (yes, Geppetto was the puppetmaster in Pinocchio ). One of the things you will absolutely never hear ad agency folk talk about is the age at which children are finally able to understand the difference between advertising and entertainment; and that ads are ... market research, surveys and trends

McDonald's Lawsuit: Using Toys to Sell Happy Meals
Dangle a toy in front of a child's eyes, and you can bet the child will do just about anything to get it. And that's exactly what McDonald's (and other restaurants) do, using everything from TV commercials to signs in windows to the Internet in order to get kids to pester their parents to take them to the restaurant. It used to be that parents warned kids to run away from strangers offering candy, but companies have made an end run by laundering their perfidy through electronic media. Now kids absorb countless commercials touting premiums based on their favorite characters -- Shrek, Batman, Barbie, Beanie ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Effects of junk food - Yahoo! Answers
Junk food is food that is unhealthy and/or has little or no nutritional value. The term is believed to have been coined by Michael Jacobson, director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, in 1972.[1] The term has since come into common usage. Junk food contains high levels of refined sugar, white flour, trans fat and polyunsaturated fat, salt, and numerous food additives such as monosodium glutamate and tartrazine; at the same time, it is lacking in proteins, vitamins and fiber, among other healthy attributes. It is popular with suppliers because it is relatively cheap to manufacture, has a long shelf life and may ...
New rule? Quality Violations => Adwords ban
The email mentions that I have submitted several ads for landing pages that are considered to be of a poor quality and that the landingpage does not comply with the 'landing page and site quality guidelines'.

Now, that is a problem. A bit strange? Also because I�m using Adwords more then 4 years and then I ...
