INTERVIEWER: Could you tell me about the passage in White Noise in which Jack listens to his daughter Steffie talking in her sleep, and she is repeating the words Toyota Celica?
DeLILLO: There's something nearly mystical about certain words and phrases that float through our lives. It's computer mysticism. Words that are computer generated to be used on products that might be sold anywhere from Japan to Denmark — words devised to be pronounceable in a hundred languages. And when you detach one of these words from the product it was designed to serve, the word acquires a chantlike quality. Years ago somebody decided — I don't know how this conclusion was reached — that the most beautiful phrase in the English language was cellar door. If you concentrate on the sound, if you disassociate the words from the object they denote, and if you say the words over and ove... Show more...
 

#Advertising Makes Us Unhappy

The University of Warwick’s Andrew Oswald and his team compared survey data on the life satisfaction of more than 900,000 citizens of 27 European countries from 1980 to 2011 with data on annual advertising spending in those nations over the same period. The researchers found an inverse connection between the two. The higher a country’s ad spend was in one year, the less satisfied its citizens were a year or two later. Their conclusion: Advertising makes us unhappy.

Advertising looks shiny but deals in misery. To sell something you have to make people dissatisfied with what they already have - and as the market saturates and the goal becomes to sell people things they don't even need the influence has to intensify. And it does:
Our analysis shows that if you doubled advertising spending, it would result in a 3% drop in life satisfaction. That’s about half the drop in life satisfaction you’d see in a person who had gotten divorced...

Tired Of Yelp? Alternative Review Sites To Yelp


Image/photo

The modern consumer thrives on information. Before making a buying decision, customers have long sought out the opinions and experiences of others to inform themselves as to whether a company is creditable or not. Today, this process is quick, easy, and accessible to anyone with a computer and internet connection.

There are few better sources of information for the consumer in the research stage than business review websites.

The biggest name in business review websites is Yelp. However, Yelp is far from the only reputable review site out there. Many others often prove to be even more useful for niche products or services.

These 14 review websites are worth looking into if you're in need of honest feedback about a business you're considering hiring.

Do you know how easy it is to remove and replace the advertising in tube carriages?

On most tube lines they are 60.8cm x 28cm (apparently) and leave anything important on your artwork at least 4cm from the edges coz that will get covered by the frame ;)

Amputee in France ‘betrayed’ by photograph of his disability found displayed on packets

A man living in France has lodged a complaint after claiming an image of his amputated leg was used as a health warning on tobacco packets through the EU without his permission.

The sixty-year old man, who lives in Metz, eastern France, was reported to be stunned after finding a picture of his amputated leg on a packet of rolling tobacco, alongside the message “smoking clogs your arteries”.

Transport ministry’s cycling helmet campaign called out by SPD’s women’s wing

An advertising campaign by Germany’s transport ministry to persuade cyclists to wear helmets has sparked accusations of sexism, as it features a model wearing just a helmet and underwear.

With the slogan “Looks like shit. But saves my life”, the advert features a profile-shot of Alicija Köhler, a competitor in the gameshow Germany’s Next Topmodel sporting a violet coloured helmet and a lacy bra.
