Poet and musician Gil Scott-Heron was born in Chicago. His mother, Bobbie Scott-Heron, was an opera singer and a teacher, and his Jamaican-born father, Gilbert Heron, was the first professional black soccer player in the United States and the first to play on Celtic FC in Scotland.

His estranged father played for Glasgow Celtic, a Scottish soccer team. He met musician Brian Jackson when both were students at Lincoln University, Pennsylvania, and in they formed the Midnight Band to play their original blend of jazz, soul and prototype rap music. In , Scott-Heron had a minor hit with 'The Bottle', a song inspired by a group of alcoholics who congregated outside his and Jackson's communal house in Washington, DC. Winter In America on which Jackson was co-credited for the first time and The First Minute Of A New Day, the latter for new label Arista Records, were both heavily jazz-influenced, but later sets saw Scott-Heron and Jackson exploring more pop-orientated formats, and in they scored a hit with the disco-based protest single, 'Johannesburg'. During this period they began working with pioneering electronic producer Malcolm Cecil from Tonto's Expanding Headband, with the duo's musical emphasis naturally shifting to synthesizer-based sounds.

A publisher who has created a widget can upload the widget onto Clearspring and elect to which sites and formats e-mail, social networking sites such as Facebook or MySpace they wish to make the widget avail- able. The platform then manages code conversion and listing the widget in application directories.

Just as the widget and content is portable, so too is the advertising on the widgets. Generally, a publisher can elect to pay a usage fee to the platform distributor and sell the advertising or they can elect to have the platform distributor sell the advertising for a revenue share. Alternative to advertising in and around widgets embodying content, widgets can be the advertising message itself.

For examples of how advertis- ers are developing their own widgets, see section IV. The use of YouTube as delivery channel for a visual complement to the original audio track situates it within an unexceptional barrage of browser icons, banner ads and metadata clutter. The video - presumably brought into the world with few concerns for audience, form, context, or recognition - articulates a now-familiar. Linguistic and pictorial metonymy in advertising emotionally.

Actually, we think about social reality in terms of cultural models Lakoff and Turner, ; Dirven, Frank and Ilie, This large-scale cultural cognitive model ranges over the wide scope of forms of beings in the universe Lakoff and Turner, The Great Chain of Being is outlined as the following hierarchy of concepts: at the top of the Great Chain of Being hierarchy is the Supreme Being, while the Human Beings occupy the following level in the hierarchy.

Since this cultural model concerns not merely attributes and behavior but also dominance, higher forms of beings dominate lower forms of beings by virtue of their higher natures. Commonly, the Great Chain of Being is thought as background to works of art ; therefore, it is not surprising that advertisers make use of this cultural model in the creation of their advertising messages. The role of the Great Chain of Being cultural model in the process of creation of metonymies in e-business advertisements will be discussed more at length in the following section.

Beautiful Trash: Art and Transformation trashcan is full of rancid food mixed with wilted waste and rotten flowers. Pull the red string fast, tie a knot, and put in a new bag: empty, white and odorless. The paper bag with recyclables is filled with flattened cardboard, rinsed plastic containers, en- velopes and beer bottles. On the street, the public bins are lined up on the sidewalk— late at night comes the sound of glass and cans collected by people that sell them to make a living.

But, while everything gets emptied into the garbage trucks in the morning, the cycle of accumulation has already begun at home. We do not fear for our lives nor are we forced to do anything for those people at the moment.

It is precisely this freedom from the oppressing urges of immediate action that allows us to linger in this situation and focus on it, opening up a space where we can try to understand it and penetrate its nuances. This finding is explained by the fact that, in a conventional channel in which both the manufacturer and retailer advertise, advertising creates two non-trivial issues that do not exist in a vertically integrated channel or in a single monopoly.

The first is the existence of vertical externalities, including free- riding, which can prevent a channel member from investing in advertising or can lead to suboptimal advertising investments.

As a matter of fact, our findings show that the manufacturer can take an advertising break in the second period just to benefit from a very effective retailer advertising program Scenarios FP and M ; this is possible even when his own advertising does not generate any substantial carryover effect.

The second issue is the understanding of the long-term effects of both retailer and manufacturer advertising on sales. For instance, the first-period manufacturer advertising may not stimulate enough sales in the second period to justify a stop of retailer advertising in that period if the retailer main advertising goal is to increase current sales.

This is often the case when retailers want to clear unwanted stocks or maximize seasonal sales by investing in promotional advertising activities. The implementation of each of the three equilibrium advertising schedules in a conventional channel should therefore effectively cope with these two issues. Georgi Lozanov, a Bulgarian doctor and psychiatrist who studied the link between perception and learning developed an approach to teaching foreign languages based on new insights into how the human mind really functions.

By creating a pleasant, relaxing, and stimulating environment, where all information has a positive emotional content, the teacher can help students to create networks of pleasurable associations. Lozanov suggests that the incorporation of music, art , role — play and games into the curriculum allow language to emerge faster than other methods.

By activating the right "creative side" of the brain, a much larger portion of the intellectual potential can be tapped, thus drawing out long-term memory. In the process of learning, the students discovered previously hidden capacities and talents, which Lozanov called the reserve capacities of the mind. Strategy Toolkit If you had endless amounts of money and time, there would probably be no need to figure out how best to allocate your resources.

But, in reality, we all have to prioritize our investments — particularly in difficult economic conditions. When faced with this challenge in your organization, how do you decide which product groups to continue, which market segments to focus on, or which business units to sell? To make that decision, you must first understand your business portfolio — and you start by determining the benchmarks to define your portfolio.

Ansoffs Matrix Basic Concepts One of the biggest dangers of this strategy is the risk of alienating your current custom- ers. For example, the tools made by US company Snap-on are widely regarded as the best in the world and are used by almost all professional automotive racing teams.

Snap-on tools are only available through a tightly controlled network of franchisees and the company has resisted the temptation to develop any markets outside of professional mechanics.

This strategy has allowed Snap-on to maintain its position as the number one supplier in this highly competitive market. They are constantly seeking more understanding of the world they live in, and they often challenge their customers as well.

This restless pursuit is like honey to a bee for many consumers who like to take a challenge head-on. Online advertising and Small and Medium Enterprises SMEs in Kuwait Email marketing was a new concept two decades ago when the world was experiencing an increase in online shopping when more and more people prefer e- commerce. This led to the rise in the online world all over the world.

However, email marketing was introduced as a spam email to check if this was a successful idea Mora and Rocamora, It took over the online advertising by storm. Many brands still use it to personalize and interact with the consumer. However, the most interactive ads via emails which are published newsletters to let the consumers know that the brands are thinking about them Ha, This also led to the advent of online banking and the bank statements to be emailed rather sent via post.

This meant more reliance on emails as the internet worked on more secure ways to protect consumer and user information. The Google Gmail is considered highly secure with the methods and security measures taken by Google to ensure the security Gross, Same pattern can be identified in recent U.

S presidential elections. In such case the democrat candidate, Hillary Clinton, not only appeared to have quadrupled the amount of media investment reported on the campaign when compared to her republican contendor, Donald Trump Allison et al. However, advertising companies also have to deal with the existence of diverse cultural settings in the several countries and communities that they target as potential consumers, and these require the implementation of cultural adjustments in their advertising campaigns.

The latter demand often involves translation in one form or another. Changes in media consumption and its impact in modern advertising: a case study of advertising strategies in Ecuador Traditional marketing should not be neglected in advertising budgets as it is still risky to just rely on a new marketing trend. Traditional marketing has had a high success rate over decades and there are still millennials that consume mass media channels. Costumers are smarter than before and as mentioned they could end up placing add blockers in their computers and mobile phones to avoid excessive advertising ads.

Even though there is more internet access in Ecuador, millennials are not willing to see advertising on social media. Ads that interrupt a customer online can create negative feelings towards the brand, while these interruptions are expected on traditional media.

On the contrary traditional mass media needs to make most of their content online if they want to still be relevant to this market niche in five to ten years. Manufacturer defensive and offensive advertising in competing distribution channels We have simplified this model with several assumptions to allow us to derive meaningful insights.

Some of these assumptions limit the generalizability of our findings. For instance, we have considered that whether advertising is offensive or defensive, it does not directly change customer preference for any of the two brands. This is consistent with the view that advertising is mainly informative e. Therefore, our findings may not apply to cases where advertising is persuasive.

Also, we have considered in this study that retailers set an identical price for the two market segments to focus exclusively on advertising strategies. Full differentiated strategies that combine both targeted pricing and advertising decisions simultaneously could also be investigated e. Finally, this work could also be extended to integrate local advertising at the retail level.

Advertising and television content for children in Argentina their, apparently, opposite goals: while the first one is part of a private channel, the second one is embedded into the kid's public channel "Pakapaka" , which is managed by the National Ministry of Education.

What we try to understand here is which mechanisms and strategies are used by the television when communicating with multimedia children in a constant communicative environment.

Also how commercial and hidden advertisements are interspersed. The results show how the television uses kids to connect with them and constantly leads them to other media —the web— and new screens where additional content of the same product can be consumed, and where advertising content becomes more evident. This offers the audience the opportunity to continue consuming once the designated time frame is over and at the same time it ensures their fidelity 2.

It also depends on the brand, but small and medium business can benefit considerably from it. However millennials are a hard niche to persuade because they are a generation that is well informed and before buying a product they search it online. Campaigns need to be interesting, short and creative to attract their attention.

Brands need to be careful with their online strategies because a pop up ad can be intrusive and , it could generate a negative perception of the brand. Millennials are a generation that wants everything faster, so an interruption could do the opposite that is expected. In other parts of the world millennials are implementing ad blockers to avoid excessive advertising , so cross marketing is the most effective form for advertising in this new era because in the end we are living in a physical world, so traditional and digital are as equal as important and they need to work together for better results.

Advertising , Children, Family and Education This study also clearly found that the primary role of family is the care, protection and education of children, a role that is fulfilled by all types of existing family and all stages of history.

In order to fulfill this function the needs of children should be define, and as we have seen, they remain the same as in earlier times, because they correspond to true human nature, which allows us to confirm that these needs are permanent despite how rapidly and deeply social contexts change.

Now and Then...

Он думал, что сможет обойтись без ее участия - принимая во внимание ее склонность к самостоятельности - и сам найдет этот ключ, но уже столкнулся с проблемами, пытаясь самостоятельно запустить Следопыта. Рисковать еще раз ему не хотелось. - Сьюзан, - в его голосе послышалась решимость, - я прошу тебя помочь мне найти ключ Хейла. - Что? - Сьюзан встала, глаза ее сверкали. Стратмор подавил желание встать с ней. Он многое знал об искусстве ведения переговоров: тот, кто обладает властью, должен спокойно сидеть и не вскакивать с места. Он надеялся, что она сядет.

Она хорошо понимала, что в отчаянной ситуации требуются отчаянные меры, в том числе и от АНБ. - Мы не можем его устранить, если ты это имела в виду. Именно это она и хотела узнать. За годы работы в АНБ до нее доходили слухи о неофициальных связях агентства с самыми искусными киллерами в мире - наемниками, выполняющими за разведывательные службы всю грязную работу. - Танкадо слишком умен, чтобы предоставить нам такую возможность, - возразил Стратмор. Сьюзан испытала от этих слов странное облегчение.

Беккер терпеть не мог говорить с автоответчиком: только задумаешься, а тот уже отключился.  - Прости, не мог позвонить раньше, - успел сказать. Подумал, не рассказать ли ей. Но решил этого не делать.  - Позвони коммандеру. Он тебе все объяснит.  - Сердце его колотилось.

АНБ пригласило Беккера, потому что имелось подозрение, что оригинал был написан на мандаринском диалекте китайского языка, и ему предстояло переводить иероглифы по мере их дешифровки. В течение двух часов Беккер переводил бесконечный поток китайских иероглифов. Но каждый раз, когда он предлагал перевод, дешифровщики в отчаянии качали головами. Очевидно, получалась бессмыслица. Желая помочь, Беккер обратил их внимание на то, что все показанные ему иероглифы объединяет нечто общее - они одновременно являются и иероглифами кандзи. В комнате тут же стало тихо.

Беккер убрал руку. Парень хмыкнул. - Я тебе помогу, если заплатишь. - Сколько? - быстро спросил Беккер. - Сотню баксов. Беккер нахмурился.

Его темные глаза выжидающе смотрели на Сьюзан.

 Я же сказал. Возвращается домой, к мамочке и папочке, в свой пригород. Ей обрыдли ее испанская семейка и местное житье-бытье.

 - Я люблю. Я люблю. В этот момент в тридцати метрах от них, как бы отвергая мерзкие признания Стратмора, ТРАНСТЕКСТ издал дикий, душераздирающий вопль. Звук был совершенно новым - глубинным, зловещим, нарастающим, похожим на змею, выползающую из бездонной шахты. Похоже, фреон не достиг нижней части корпуса.
