I bet you’ve read a lot of historical ‘facts’ about Victorian Age and its restraint. For example, that showing an ankle was unacceptable for a woman. There is a legend that Queen Victoria gave her daughter an advice before her wedding night with her husband. She told her to lay on the back and think about England. There is a joke about Victorian Age sex, like even if two people decided to have sex, they would have to deal with so many layers of clothes that the whole act wasn’t worth bothering.
“Who is going to win the elections this November?” I think most of us do not even ask this question, because most of us think the answer is pretty obvious. As the answer to the question “Will Obama be re-elected?”
I can assure you, the situation for example in Russia is pretty similar. And Putin did get re-elected. It looked like Medvedev was a temporary replacement. People say: it is the illusion of choice, because well, do people actually have it?
Of course Russia and America are very different and it is not right comparing them like this. But still.
The participants of the party where the Prince Harry was present aim to sell the private photo of the Prince to the media agencies as reported by BBC website. The BBC public relations consultant Max Clifford claims that two women applied to the agency with the request to buy the photos from them independently of each other. But Max Clifford refused to purchase these photos. He admitted that the reason for his firm “no” was the active participation of the prince in welfare work and his military service in the British army.
Thailand is a wonderful place to stay and live. Some westerners who lost hope of finding a good job over there decide to start their own businesses. Well, it is quite difficult as Thailand is the country of absolutely different culture and traditions. So starting your own business in Thailand first of all you should get acquainted with its laws and regulations. As the rule foreigners arriving in Thailand do not speak Thai, have no idea of specific aspects of local market and sector they are going to invest in. So these aspects are extremely important. At the same time if you are a good specialist in a sphere it doesn’t mean you would succeed in Thailand. Well, I’m not trying to discourage you. My aim is to warn you. It is wonderful to travel around Thailand. But it has nothing in common with reality of living there and doing business.
It seems that advertising becomes bigger and bigger every day not only in terms of its popularity but in terms of the size itself. In order to attract the attention of consumers advertising companies make promo constructions nearly the size of the Moon. These giant constructions are interesting not only due to their size but to the creative approach as well. Every major company is eager to occupy the leading position on the market by creating some vivid and unforgettable advertising product.
Probably, the biggest advertising in the world was grown by the promo agency Betfair.com to greet the tourists on the Football European Championship 2008. It took four months to grow an inscription “No. 1 in football and still growing” which is made of wheat, cotton and flowers and occupies the square which is equal to fifty football fields.
The development of technology provides us with new means of sharing news and staying in touch. Twitter which was originally developed as a version of popular social networks has soon become a popular and powerful news resource. There is no need to watch news blocks on TV or read newspapers any more if you are sitting in Twitter. However, this method of getting informed has both its advantages and disadvantages.
Twitter can provide you with news as fast as can be imagined as the users post information practically the same instant the event is happening. Though twits usually do not contain the full account of the events it may be viewed as an effective alert system by the news reporters.
Celebs have everything a mere mortal can dream of: fame, money, love of the public, success… but apparently, modern celebrities are to be noticed on the political arena every now and then. What do they do it for? More money? Power? Appreciation? Or maybe it is all about popularity? Remember Madonna and her criticism of McCain’s political strategy? Or George Clooney who was the most devoted supporter of Barack Obama? Moreover, celebs’ political activity sometimes spreads far beyond criticism or support and they join the ranks of politics.
