year. Has the global recession really, officially ended? And if so, will the aftermath cause pains for years to come? Whatever the outcome, we find ourselves spotting more recession-proof opportunities than ever before. Why? Consumers, recession-stricken or not, still value innovations that are pragmatic, or exciting, or those that save them money, or entertain them.... oh well, you get the picture.Time to get busy again! As this is all about trends, and as 'trends' still mean everything from global warming to Spring 2011 skirt lengths, we need to clarify that: We’re tracking consumer trends. Not macro trends. ...

On the Fourth of July, we look forward to celebrating our nation’s independence with parades, fireworks, beer and barbecues. We’ll spout patriotic orations, some more drunken than others, each proclaiming how proud (and lucky) we are to live in the United States. We’ll set off sparklers, eat plenty of food and hope everyone enjoys the moment. This year is going to be different for me. When the U.S. State Department recently released its “10th Annual Trafficking in Persons” report, all I could think was how ironic the timing that we should be reminded of those still enslaved just as we are about to ... market research, surveys and trends
No Reason to Celebrate Just Yet.
In response to my question about how they might know whether their advocacy efforts on behalf of “factory farm animals” was achieving any results, I was directed to a webpage that offers this: “At Last – Number of Animals Killed for Food Drops!” Great News!! Or not. The “drop” in food animals killed is a one year decrease from 2007 to 2008, and it is only a decrease of 0.6% – that’s right, less than 1%, only in one year. Never mind that the USDA data shows that the total weight of “food animal carcasses” produced in 2008 represents an increase of almost 8% since the year 2000, or that the weight produced ... market research, surveys and trends

Getting it on in public
My experience of white middle-class South Africans is that we tend to be very wary of others. Whether tucked away in gated communities, encapsulated in our cars, or running in the gym with headphones on, we like to keep at a distance from others. Even when in public, at the shops for example, we are there for specific reasons, and not for the sake of being surrounded by other people. As such, when in those spaces we prefer not to engage with, or be disturbed by others. We seldom greet fellow shoppers, or chat to anyone in the street. We are polite, but seldom engaging. We assume that anyone who approaches us is either going to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How did the whole easter bunny thing get started? - Yahoo! Answers
The Easter bunny has its origin in pre-Christian fertility lore. The Hare and the Rabbit were the most fertile animals known and they served as symbols of the new life during the Spring season. The bunny as an Easter symbol seems to have it's origins in Germany, where it was first mentioned in German writings in the 1500s. The first edible Easter bunnies were made in Germany during the early 1800s. These were made of pastry and sugar. The Easter bunny was introduced to American folklore by the German settlers who arrived in the Pennsylvania Dutch country during the 1700s. The arrival of the "Oschter Haws" was considered ...
Slashdot | What Should Be In a Technology Bill of Rights?
Everybody knows cuddly Tux isn't ready for neck-space! They are still only good for you stuffed animal geeks who prefer their own hand-sewn plushies to mass produced teddybears and beanie babies. Open source sewing machines are helping, but there are still too many situations where hand-sewing is the only option, and that is just not acceptable. To be fair to the software publishers how about the right to remove and/or disable, and aid others to remove and/or disable, any DRM that in any way restricts the fair use rights of the user. I'd also go further and require that any software shipping with DRM that restricts ...
