Unsolicited Commercial Email and other forms of spam have become so prevalent as to have become a major nuisance to users of these services, as well as being a financial burden on internet service providers . Advertising is increasingly invading public spaces, such as schools, which some critics argue is a form of child exploitation.

The Peculiarities of Beer Advertising and Major Le - Sports Law Blog
The ad has drawn some attention since Major League Baseball does not allow its players to endorse alcohol domestically, although that rule does not apply to international markets. (also, and not relevant to this post: the ad would not be allowed in the U.S. because industry actors voluntary refrain from televised images of persons consuming alcohol). The basic thinking behind MLB's domestic ban is that beer is a potentially dangerous product and MLB doesn't want its players to promote it--particularly because young persons watching beer ads are more likely to drink , and MLB doesn't want to exacerbate the problem. market research, surveys and trends
Unplug – Don't Drug Policy Initiative

FDA attempts to douse industry efforts to market tobacco to kids with smoking ...
I am showing my age, but I’m old enough to remember—and have tried—candy cigarettes as a child. I even liked them. And in my hometown, mammoth Marlboro billboards used to peer down on the highway like a modern-day Dr. T.J. Eckleburg sign, beckoning passers-by with the iconic cowboy in all his contrived and smoldering coolness. Thankfully, kids today do not have the same not-so-subtle cues to begin a life of smoking. (Unfortunately, a whole new portfolio of ploys is used by tobacco companies.) Despite increased efforts by the government over the years to regulate tobacco use, industry bigwigs and tobacco ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

In a poignant and witty memoir, the NPR commentator uses a series of interlinked stories and anecdotes to describe growing up as the daughter of an alcoholic traveling salesman and a mother who made bombs for a living, her colorful adulthood, her offbeat and unusual friends, and her career as a radio commentator and flight attendant. 2- Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs. It is the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her psychiatrist, a dead-ringer for Santa and a lunatic in the bargain.

Question: How has technology and modern society changed how kids ...
I need a healthy amount of research around the topic of how technology and modern society changed how young people learn. For instance: -- How does television affect kids' overall cognitive ability? -- Are kids multitasking effectively, or it is hurting their ability to learn? -- Does taking notes in class using a computer help or hurt learning? -- In a world where two thirds of kids spend more time in front of a computer than they do a television set, are we unknowingly re-shaping the learning patterns of children? -- What are the five key things our networked world has already taught young people behind our back? ...
