If you watch any TV, you've seen the barrage of advertisements for prescription medications. They always start by showing someone in distress—from insomnia, allergies, erectile dysfunction or other medical condition. But after taking the drug, the person is either sleeping soundly or running through the fields, depending on the original ailment,  while the announcer reads a scary list of side effects in a voice so soothing that they almost sound fun. The problem with such "direct-to-consumer," or DTC, advertisements is that they may generate excessive demand because people go straight to their doctors asking for this ...
" (that is, homosexuality) is apparent from an early age. She finds love with Mary Llewellyn, whom she meets while serving as an ambulance driver in World War I, but their happiness together is marred by social isolation and rejection, which Hall depicts as having a debilitating effect on inverts. The novel portrays inversion as a natural, God-given state and makes an explicit plea: "Give us also the right to our existence". The Well became the target of a campaign by James Douglas , editor of the Sunday Express newspaper, who wrote "I would rather give a healthy boy or a healthy girl a phial of prussic acid ...

Robert Hughes, 1986--1990
Since the end of the 18th century, America has produced any number of competent sculptors, even a few first-rate ones, but perhaps only two that brought authentic greatness to their own genres: David Smith and Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Smith's work was the climax of a tradition of open, sheet-metal sculpture that began in 1912 with Picasso's tin guitar; Saint-Gaudens, at the end of the 19th century, epitomized the academic tradition of public speech through bronze casting, whose roots wound back to Donatello and Verrocchio. The idea that one was as good as the other would have seemed macaronic 20 years ago, when ... market research, surveys and trends


Poll shows surprising strength by Tea Party's Debra Medina in GOP ...
Nobody -- well, hardly anybody outside perhaps the Medina household -- expects the small business owner and anti-Washington crusader to be the next governor of Texas. Heck, until recently she wasn’t even much of a factor in the shoot-'em-up between the two leviathans of Lone Star politics, Gov. Rick Perry and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison .    Then again, up until a couple of weeks out, nobody thought Brown -- a little-known state senator and ex-Cosmo model -- stood much chance of swiping the Massachusetts Senate seat held for almost a half century by the late Edward M. Kennedy . That said, a poll out Tuesday is ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
FiveThirtyEight: Politics Done Right: Wisconsin Senate: Feingold ...
I posted an article that questioned whether polls -- and in particular, the polls released by Rasmussen Reports -- were disproportionately representative of a very small segment of very high-information voters: people whom we might think of as political junkies, or even political activists. This afternoon, we got an interesting example of that. Rasmussen released a poll suggesting that Ron Johnson, a businessman from Oshkosh, is running just 2 points behind Democratic incumbent Russ Feingold in Wisconsin's Senate race. Have you ever heard of Ron Johnson? I hadn't until about three days ago. And it seems unlikely ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Sudden Drop Down In Ranks
Is anyone noticing a ranking problem on Google this weekend. We are usually number 1,2 or 3 with the majority of our keywords. Suddenly we are number 6 or 7 and other competitors that are usually very low are now number 1 or 2. Seems like everything has been reversed. Anyone else with the same problem? Thanks, NF From what I've picked up from this thread, I'm seriously thinking about AVOIDING the whole Google thing as an advertiser. It sounds to me like they've got a program that's so screwed-up that it would take someone with the cumulative mind of three Albert Einsteins to figure it out. Or an advanced ...

I do a lot of things, and all of them intentional. I spend a certain part of my day just surfing the Web. StumbleUpon is great for this, and you can focus your targets a bit. I'm also part of several social networks, like Facebook, just to see what silliness pops up now and again. Lurk in gaming newsgroups (computer and online gaming), and any groups where the younger tech-savy groups meet and babble about what new gadgets are out there. You never know when you find yourself saying, "At first that sounded stupid, but I could use it a different way on my site..." posted 4 months ago Electrical Engineer at Green Cycle ...
