“Media Buying is a sub function of Advertising management. Media Buying is the procurement of the best possible placement and price of a piece of media real-estate within any given media. The main task of Media Buying lies within the negotiation of price and placement to ensure the best possible value can be secured.”—An unpleasant sounding job.
“The banner Don’t Californicate Oregon became the symbol of James Cloutier’s line of “Oregon Ungreeting Cards”, which carried sentiments such as “Tom Lawson McCall, governor, on behalf of the citizens of the great state of Oregon, cordially invites you to visit… Washington or California or Idaho or Nevada or Afghanistan”.”—
“While gefilte fish isn’t one of the symbolic foods on the Passover Seder Plate, it is a traditional part of the meal in many households. Part of its popularity lies in the cultural significance underlying its preparation: Since one can buy it deboned, it doesn’t require work at the table, which means that it can be eaten during the Sabbath when work is forbidden. Another benefit is that fish is parve, so kosher consumers can eat it on the same plate with either meat or dairy foods. Another reason for the aqueous critter’s lingering popularity lies in its economy. Originally developed in Europe’s Ashkenazi Jewish community, gefilte fish balls incorporated cereals and fillers to stretch the fish itself. The fish was class-free — accessible enough for the poorest member of a community, yet glitzy enough for the most wealthy.”—
The best explanation I could find (in about 5 minutes of research) as to why Jews eat gefilte fish on Passover.
MPDGs are usually static characters who have eccentric personality quirks and are unabashedly girlish. They invariably serve as the romantic interest for a (often brooding or depressed) leading male protagonist.
Nice look at the process of getting an approved poster design for a Broadway play (musical?). It’s actually kind of sad…some really unique and beautiful pieces rejected in favor of something that feels much more generic and unoriginal.
“[V]ote-Auction“ is a relatively old project from 2000 just before the first election of President Bush–it was a platform for the buying and selling of individual votes in the American election. A user could go to the site and register his/her vote for sale, which was tagged to the user’s respective state, and other people could buy votes from a particular state. That was the basic routine of the platform. ”—
Rather nice project by MIT’s Richard The. It’d be nice for more trains to officially implement this kind of thing and showcase art commissioned work inside the tunnels. I also think that it’s kind of amazing someone was able to do this in post 9/11-NYC without being immediately arrested or tackled by streetwise commuters.
Interesting project. I preferred what I originally understood it to be - a pool of networked cameras that all exchange their images to one another. So if you and another user both take photos at the same time, you get their photo and they get yours.
