Radio spots should be broadcast every five minutes in order to hit the maximum audience.

The characteristics that the messages contain differ in amount of material presented, the speed of the presentation, the number of arguments, the repetition, style, clarity, order of events, forcefulness, specificity, accuracy and extremity of the position advocated. Some characteristics can be measured objectively as to effectiveness.

Hazard awareness programs in a community can have different themes. Some programs are designed to attract the attention, others designed to give additional information may have an animal or cartoon mascot or utilize celebrity endorsements.

The content of the messages attract differing audiences. When one wants to address adults, scientific information programs may give technical data about a hazard. This information is processed only by those familiar with the terminology used. Practical instructions on exactly what to do in case of an approaching danger, may focus more on protective…… [Read More]

From this point-of-view the PR campaign's objectives in this case are:

Increasing the company's market share up to 6%

Increasing the company sales up to11%

Identifying the target customer segments

Identifying different categories of public relies on identifying values, behaviors, ideals, expectations, involvement degree or possibilities of acceptance of the ideas promoted by the campaign. Basically, for the new line of products for summer use, L'Oreal is targeting the same customer segments that the company has always addressed. There are two main target customer segments for L'Oreal's products:

The first targeted segment of customers is consisted of women between 25 and 35 years of age, with high education, with medium to high incomes, and with a high social situation

Credibility in Journalism They Say

Words: 951 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 41925862

Up to this point, the media has generally been considered the arbiter of objective truth, with an obligation to "provide news and information that is accurate, fairly reported and untainted by diminished credibility" (Union-Tribune 2004). But this doesn't sem to be what we are asking for in other arenas, and frankly there isn't any media outlet, whether in print or on television or the Internet, that is completely "untainted by diminished credibility" -- everything has funding from somewhere, and money gets the message out. If news is going to be slanted anyway, why not make it open and outright? John Leo notes that overt examples of mixing fact and fiction in "journalism" already exist, and also notes that "society has its own truth troubles," listing "docudramas" as the first of these (Leo). We as a culture are obsessed with things that we can believe as truth despite the obvious slant,…… [Read More]

The ubiquity of online media has prompted the magazine to reduce its rate of print publications to 10 from 12 publications a year, and cut its print subscriptions in favor of digital advertising. This will also allow for greater segmentation, as it can more easily create "digital single topic editions, mobile applications, e-reader products and videos" of specific interest to segments of its core consumer base, and hopefully draw more advertisers who wish to target their publications online (Bell 2009). It can also feature general articles and condensed stories to suit the desire of readers still seeking the Reader's Digest compressed form that tells them 'everything they need to know.' Through the online website, searchers can select what stories interest them the most.

Symbolic Interactionism

Theoretical Treatments of Symbolic Interactionism

In order to develop a deeper understanding of sociological theories designed to describe the complexities of the cognitive process, it is essential to identify tangible examples of these as they are manifested in the real world. The concept of symbolic interactionism, while carrying varying connotations depending on the distinct school of sociological thought one embraces, is generally agreed to describe the empirical analysis of three simple premises, "that human beings act toward things on the basis of the meanings that the things have for them & #8230; that the meaning of such things is derived from, or arises out of, the social interaction that one has with his environment & #8230; (and) that these meanings are handled in, and modified through, an interpretive process used by the person in dealing with the things he encounters" (Blumer, 1986).

Investigating the viability of using the (EFQM) Excellence Model 2013 as a basis for introducing an Integrated Management System into a Print Media Company

The viability of using the European foundation for quality management (EFQM) excellence

An integrated management system (IMS) is a system of management that incorporates the entire organizations' processes and departments in one inclusive framework (Pardy & Andrews 2010). This enables the organization to function as a distinct unit that has integrated objectives and vision. An organization with an integrated system becomes a whole unit, which is genuinely coordinated with each specific objective in line with one major goal of the organization; significantly improving the overall performance of the organization.

An integrated system gives a comprehensible, holistic view of all aspects of your organization, how they have an effect on each other and their allied risks. It also reduces work duplication and hence, eases…… [Read More]

Knight Riders

What is your definition of innovation?

Innovation is seeing something with new eyes; finding the unexpected in the expected, and changing in an intelligent fashion with the needs of the environment.

Q2.Why is innovation important?

Without innovation, growth is impossible and products and ideas will grow outdated -- change is constant in life and without change a brand will quickly 'die.'

How would you evaluate the experimental process of Knight Riders?

Knight Riders' experimental process could best be characterized as one of trial and error. The initial experimental process was unsuccessful.

Yet, many ads lack such sensitivity and actually end up re-affirming every senior citizen's fears.

The next important theme is that of enjoying retirement. This message is portrayed once again largely by banks selling various bank products. However, recently companies promoting travel packages, and other types of consumer products have become another major facet of such reoccurring themes. This plays on the idea that each individual has worked hard his or her whole life, and should therefore be rewarded with freedom in retirement. This type of thematic representation has also occurred in major motion pictures and literature for years. Unlike the previous theme discussed, this theme represents a much brighter view of the lives of senior citizens. This gives gerontological social work a much different perspective of a life outside of normal middle age working experiences. It also represents a shift in consciousness to a more youthful and free type…… [Read More]

Watching Television Shapes Our Views

Race was not an issue in the shows I watched and I cannot imagine how race would ever been an issue or portrayed in a show where decorators and families decorate homes.

In one of the shows the homeowner left instructions that they wanted an African theme and they were an African-American family, but that was not the show moving the minds of the viewers, rather it was the homeowner's having a preference.

The subtle stereotypes were confined to watching Amy Winn handle all of the sewing work while the male carpenter was given the wood work projects to handle.

The most interesting thing about this show was the lack of stereotypes. It shows men hanging curtains, women moving furniture with no concern toward gender or race. I have never chosen to watch the show because I am not yet a homeowner so there was no need for me to…… [Read More]

Diane Sawyer

Women in the U.S. have played exceptional role in variety of fields and done a great deal of service to their gender by attracting attention to what women can achieve. Diane Sawyer is one such remarkable American who rose to fame when in 1987, she was refused entry into Kremlin in Russia because she was a woman and instead of succumbing to the rules, she had the courage to say that she wasn't a woman but an American journalist. We can only imagine the power of those words because they were enough to grant her an entry into one of the most well guarded places in the world in a land that has the staunchest laws.

Since then Sawyer has not looked back. Diane was brilliant on CBS as an investigative reporter, a newsperson and an exceptional interviewer. She interviewed some of the most well-known people like Saddam…… [Read More]

Business Course Retrospective

Comment on how journaling activities helped you recognize the real or potential impact of stakeholder biases as well as your own biases. How do biases or differing perspectives influence the media, public opinion, and decision-making in business and society? Use example from your activities to support your commentary.

The Journaling process provided direct examples of individual bias and of the degree to which pre-existing beliefs and perception color the perceptions of individuals. For example, journaling revealed that people with predominantly conservative political views maintain fundamental beliefs that differ substantially from the views maintained by people with fundamentally liberal points-of-view. I learned that one aspect of modern media consumption is that people tend to seek out editorial opinions that are consistent with the ones they already espouse and that only reinforce them. They do not seek out objective opinions and critical review of the reports they consume and…… [Read More]

Media executives not journalists were in control at Fox and determined the on-air content. Demonstrating that no news is free from engineering by the production team, the documentary revealed that Republicans made up of 83% of the interview subjects on Fox, and only weaker liberal voices were asked as guests, to serve as punching bags rather than as advocates of an alternative point-of-view.

As a final indignity, during the 2004 Presidential Campaign, the Fox network openly campaigned for Bush, daily attacking John Kerry's positions and presenting Republican-generated questions about the Democrat's character and war service without any question of their veracity. Even if someone does not watch Fox News, in short, they may have to suffer in a nation governed by a man elected under a dubious electoral system, where partisan news is presented as real news, without disclosure of the network's biases. The network even declared Bush the winner…… [Read More]

Societal Impact of Modern Communication

Words: 1558 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 38797826

Ultimately, it is quite clear that modern communication technology has changed the world. There are very few entities that can viably make that claim, but the last several decades have, without a doubt, permanently and universally transformed the way people communicate. Unfortunately, along with these new technologies come fears; fears of the unknown impact that all of this change will have on society. This causes critics such as Rosen and Postman to attribute many of the world's evils to modernization. However, as we look back through time, every single advancement has instilled these same types of fears, none of which have ever wholly come to fruition. At the end of the day, the written word is not going anywhere. People may choose to get their news online instead of from a newspaper but they are still reading words that have been written.

video, three different forms of bad statistics were mentioned. The first was bad sampling, the second was bad use of measures of central tendency and the third was leading questions. Leading questions are a form of sampling error, in which survey respondents are led to specific conclusions. Their responses are calculated in the results, the context in which those responses arose was not noted. The context, however, played a significant role in framing the responses. There are many ways to lead people with questions. I think a lot of times the leading questions are emotional in nature, to put somebody in a specific emotional state that frames their response. The question about Santa Claus in the video was a good example of this -- "Do you really still believe in Santa Claus?" But this happens with all types of surveys.

John Rawls' philosophical theme centers on the topic of "justice as fairness." It's hard not to relate this to one of the growing topics of discussion, namely the importance of digital deception which might well include the idea of airbrushing photos and images. Technology has the capacity today to provide us all with a Veil of Ignorance (Freeman, 2009) that even Rawls did not see coming and one that has the capacity of wiping away the honest elements of rationality and reason that he believes is necessary for people to be able to work together toward a balanced and honest society that works well for everyone.

Prior research has demonstrated that teens play a critical role in helping establish the motivational atmosphere of their sports teams. Motivational environments with supportive peers have a greater association with behavior patterns in teen athletes than individual ego orientation. Therefore, the type of training climate facilitated by the coach can help determine the team's success.

Hypotheses / Research Questions

This internal reflection may reveal a problematic absence of ethical orientation, a core lack of accountability, a flawed set of procedures or a misapprehension of the company's best competitive advantages. Naturally, the scale and scope of the company will determine how much media attention a given crisis receives. For instance, a company such as retail-giant Walmart has faced constant speculation over its unethical labor practices and, as a result, has worked to improve the internal culture within which store employees are frequently mistreated.

In contexts where broad organizational growth, as opposed to crisis, has prompted the need for a reexamination of internal culture, time is usually needed to observe patterns requiring change. In other words, in the face of rapid company growth, consistency and procedure are often lost in the shuffle. A period of leveling out from growth is required, within which the company's culture may be refined and redefined.…… [Read More]

Prevention for Power and Privileges under Social Contract:

While social contract provides power and privileges to all members of the society, ordinary people are usually prevented from executing the power and privilege that they are entitled to through various ways. Some of these ways include the state's legitimacy claims and excess governmental control that interfere with certain rights of ordinary people. Through its claims of legitimate authority, a state enacts regulations that citizens must obey despite of their danger of disobeying.

The claims to legitimate authority are mainly based on the fact that governments are elected by the people they rule and act as people's voice. The claims to legitimate authority by states result in governmental control, which is the other way with which ordinary people are prevented…… [Read More]

Television, the four powers of television are characterized as the power to entertain, the power to socialize and educate, the power to inform, and the power to create community and consensus. The four are not mutually exclusive and can be found operating in pairs or larger groupings on individual shows.

The power to entertain is understood by everyone and is the primary power for most people. The television networks have played to this power from the beginning, carrying over what they had been doing on radio into the new medium to create programs that would gather large audiences around comedies, dramas, variety shows, and the like.

Annual Public Relations Strategy for

When you really think about the PR blunders over the past 25 years, it strikes me that more accurately we should be calling them failures in management, not failures of PR," says Professor Broom, co-author of the books, "Effective Public Relations" and "Using Research in Public Relations." Surely, the failures have the effect of damaging an organization's relationships with its publics but the PR function often is not part of management," says Broom (Garcia, 1990)."

These stereotypes are communicated to a higher number of people, and because it is the perceived correct manifestation of womanhood and manhood, people will just start embodying these characteristics in their lives. Thus, women who believe they are expected by society to act submissive and domesticated would behave the same way to be socially accepted. However, a woman who does not believe in these stereotypes might not be empowered to uphold her true feminine characteristics because her actions, behavior, and beliefs are negated by the highly influential popular/mass media.

Another concept relevant to the discussion of sexuality is heteronormativity, which characterizes heterosexuality as the "natural" gender identity (Weiss, 2001:132).

Labor Organizations

Discuss the similarities and differences between at least three labor organizations discussed in Chapter 3.

The Knights of Labor was a standard labor union comprised of individual workers across the nation. They were inclusive in terms, employing both skilled workers in crafts industries as well as unskilled laborers such as coalminers. (Rayback, 1966, p. 168). They had limited political objectives such as the eight-hour workday and the prohibition of child and convict labor. Their broader objectives were social: to improve the image and social status of the working man.

The AFL was not a labor organization, but a federation of affiliated labor unions. (Dubofsky & Foster, 2004, p. 138).

Words: 638 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Case Study Paper #: 21908388


Old Navy has gone through many evolutions of marketing campaigns in the last decade. The mannequin approach needs to be retired in exchange for something more fresh and exciting; especially for the target demographic of young males. It is recommended that smartphone advertising be utilized as the delivery platform to reach this demographic.

The common idea about men is that they do not like to shop. However, this isn't quite the case. Rather, they just shop differently. Reaching out the men in the twenty-five to thirty-five demographic requires new skills as marketers.

Journalistic news media tend to present themselves as objective entities within out democratic society that ensure that citizens remain informed of important public issues and events, however, also as guardians who keep public officials honest. Ideals integrity, objectivity, and truthfulness are often cited as standards that govern how journalists, with respect to news stories, do their job. However, editorials are a whole different story. There is no claim of fairness or impartiality here. Instead of a reporting of substantiated facts, figures, and events, editorials are predominantly the opinions of writers (with the political slant of the publisher determining much of the content of what appears in editorial pages). This is not to say that editorials have no positive qualities. Editorials are often entertaining, and many individuals tend to favour a particular editorialist or editorial page that reflects their own beliefs, principles, etc. However, editorials are often characterized by the presentation…… [Read More]
