Plugging in through clothing: How children’s clothes influence perception and affective practices in day careThe Sociological Review - Elina Paju, 2017
Through the analysis of everyday practices of wearing clothing, clothes are seen as connectors. They enhance, diminish or expand possibilities for perception, action and affective practices in which children engage, thereby altering the children’s ways of being. The article proposes that the wearing of clothing plays a role in constituting selfhood outside of mere representations.

Minimum alcohol pricing plan 'may breach EU law' - BBC News
[MPU] legislation is significantly to restrict the market, and this might be avoided by the introduction of a tax measure designed to increase the price of alcohol instead of a measure imposing a minimum price per unit of alcohol." [...] /// Instead it says increasing the tax on alcohol tax could be justified as it would combat alcohol misuse and wouldn't restrict the market. /// [...] Alison Douglas, chief executive of Alcohol Focus Scotland [...] minimum pricing was a better measure than alcohol taxes, which are "limited in their ability to raise the price of the cheapest alcohol to a level that will actually reduce harm". [SWA] had "blocked the democratic will of the Scottish Parliament and sacrificed public health to protect their members' profits". [...] [BMA] "The case for minimum unit pricing has always been based on the fact that it achieves what taxation cannot[."] [...] "unhealthy relationship with drink". //&! bit.ly/1mglhVe

Conservatives should blame capitalism for the 'war on Christmas' | Steven W Thrasher | Opinion | The Guardian
consumption as with dieting, is not consistent. [...] The first battles of this war on Christmas are usually fought right after (and increasingly on) Thanksgiving Day, as Black Friday shoppers are whipped into a frenzy of buying garbage products we don’t need, built in ways that maim and kill the people who make them and produced by means that slowly kill us all.

Mobbing-Klage gegen Nestlé: Unappetitliche Einblicke - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Nestapo wurde das Qualitätsmanagement intern genannt. Sehr beliebt war es nicht. [...] je öfter sie sich bei falschen Vitamindosierungen oder mit Chemikalien verunreinigten Verpackungen einmischte, desto unbeliebter machte sie sich. [...] Im Sommer wurden in Maggi-Nudeln in Indien zu hohe Bleiwerte entdeckt und vorvergangene Woche musste Nestlé nach einer Untersuchung seiner Lieferkette sklavenähnliche Zustände auf thailändischen Krabbenkuttern einräumen - ein Vorwurf, den man allerdings schon seit zwei Jahren kennt. Beim Prozess in Lausanne geht es nicht nur um eine zerbröselte Karriere. Er gibt einen Blick frei auf das Innenleben des größten Lebensmittelkonzerns der Welt - und das ist nicht besonders appetitlich. [...] Doppelgesichtigkeit eines Konzerns [...] In einem Schulungsvideo sprach er vom WHO-Quakquak. // EVIDENCE THAT THOSE WHO DEAL YOU POISON WONT CHANGE THEIR BUSINESS!

Rezension ǀ Was wäre ein selbstbestimmtes Leben? — der Freitag
Rezension Michael Pauens und Harald Welzers Schrift "Autonomie" verteidigt den Mut, sich seiner eigenen Autonomie zu bedienen [...] Zwischen derartigen Gewissensfragen erstreckt sich der Handlungsspielraum, um den es Michael Pauen und Harald Welzer in ihrem Buch "Autonomie. Eine Verteidigung" geht: Selbstbestimmung trotz Gefahr für das eigene Leben und das der Liebsten, innere Unabhängigkeit und Mündigkeit trotz der Gefahr der sozialen Isolation. Diese Erörterung ist so notwendig wie schwierig. Denn so notwendig und wertvoll Autonomie auf der einen Seite ist, so schwierig zu begreifen ist sie auf der anderen. Zwei Beispiele unter vielen: Handelt ein Veganer autonom? [...] Autonomie, so die Prämisse von und Pauen/Welzer, sei erstens eine Errungenschaft und zweites als solche stets wiederherzustellen. [!!!Autonomy im Rahmen der Gesellschaft!!!: Job, pay tax, shop, etc] //&! youtu.be/NKAevgGvqjw << also on delicious. &! youtu.be/csIW4W_DYX4 - Human Virtues!

The blame for distorting our view of women doesn’t lie just with advertisers | Lucy Mangan | Comment is free | The Guardian
If we objected strongly enough to warped views of female bodies, women would take our custom elsewhere. But we keep buying the brands that offend us [...] But the lack of change in this area suggests consumers are not changing their spending habits. And as most of the consumers of the brands and products these advertisers are selling to are women purporting to hate this kind of thing, we have a conundrum: why are we still doing this? Why aren’t we putting our money where our mouths are? And then, obviously, in further solidarity taking our mouths off for a pizza somewhere? [...] Asking, or compelling by legislation, advertisers to do this runs counter to almost every prevailing ideology and trend. It asks that moneymaking ventures act for the greater good instead of the bottom line. It asks government to chip away at a cornerstone of the free market. It conceptualises women as hapless victims of intangible forces.

Did David Cameron’s conference speech manage to capture the centre ground? | Politics | The Guardian
The prime minister stood up before his party in Manchester – and then studiously ignored heartland Tory topics. He dwelled instead on social justice, poverty and prison reform. It was an audacious attempt to reset British politics, move to the centre and consolidate his party’s grip on power. Will his move succeed, and how it might reshape the political landscape?

American Apparel: a trip from the height of cool to lows of bankruptcy | Business | The Guardian
[ your edgy and PR storm/press differentiation can become a liability to future growth especially if you use that kind of marketing to grow, clickbait is not sustainable. stupid. should have stayed private and nimble! wall street and the numbers call it a bluff of the founder, cant be bigger & more than it was pre-ipo. no growing endlessly as edgy brand ] American Apparel has faced growing competition in the US from cut-price overseas competitors such as H&M, who have effectively replicated the brand’s fashion for a lower price. [...] recorded a loss for ten consecutive quarters, which was unsustainable given its debts. [...] American Apparel is the country’s biggest manufacturer of clothing and it is based in downtown Los Angeles. The company claims to pay experienced factory works more than $30,000 a year, compared with $600 a year for workers in Bangladesh factories.

Hysterical consumerism ruins food. And holidays. And books | Emma Brockes | Comment is free | The Guardian
[ Brand dilution (because there is a queue of brands waitng to be exploited and sold out, although millenials don't see sell-outs as bad anymore ...) vs ] Brand extension, the capitalist form of mission creep, has been around for a long time and, although it’s hit or miss – Richard Branson’s Virgin Brides springs to mind – it makes a certain amount of commercial sense. More depressing is what it says about consumer appetites, a sugar-in-everything infantilization of tastes that suggests if you love something, you must have it infused in your tea or printed on a blanket so you can drag it around with you everywhere. [...] This transference of one good thing to another, unrelated good thing is part of the peculiarly American urge to satisfy all appetites at once and it’s eroding the idea of pleasure as context-specific.

fat shaming (does not help, ultimately) is not enlightenment (public education and personal self-education, reading up how you harm yourself and people from high up & ur parents have poisoned you since your inception (epigenetics, pollution)), medical intervention, helping someone when you were in their shoes and found help and or helped yourself. Only YOU YOURSELF can be of true interest about YOUR health, because it is your life, your health, your well being, happiness, your disposable income not to spend on medical care. Not food multinational conglomerates owned by a handful shareholders! Theyre not interested in ur health or the nations exploding health care spending. They are interested in maintaining the status quo. Dividends. Profits. Less regulation & oversight. Rising share price. Share buybacks. As child ur indoctrinated, by those people.

What is Angela Ahrendts doing at Apple? - Fortune
“She motivates people. She inspires people. And she is the sort of person who wants to see things succeed as a team. It’s a rare quality.” [...] Ahrendts believes the key to the company’s future is not just marvelous products, but also engaging and energizing its nearly 100,000 employees, 60% of whom now work in retail division. “If you’re going to employ people anyway,” she says, “why not make them the differentiator? They’re not a commodity.” Now that there are 459 Apple stores in 15 countries, many people have their first Apple experience inside a store—a first impression that could forever tarnish the brand if it’s not good. “Burberry was about building a relationship,” she says. “But it was always about selling an amazing product that you would have forever. Apple is just a deeper relationship with a much broader constituency. Because it’s everybody.” // apple positioned itself just above everyone else it competes w [having a margin!], but not too far up to be douchy, off-setting

Back in 2007, Kara Swisher (who now runs Re/code which, like Vox.com, is part of Vox Media) expressed astonishment that Facebook could be worth $15 billion. A year before that, a Slate headline read "$1 Billion for Facebook? LOL!" (Facebook is now worth $260 billion.) [....] A company's early ad revenue just doesn't tell us anything interesting about its long-term earnings potential. It takes a while for a company to hire a sales team, settle on an effective advertising format, and build awareness among potential customers. [...] But while it might take time for Snapchat to build a successful advertising program, there's little doubt that it will be able to. Every day, 100 million people open up the Snapchat app. As long as that's true, advertisers are going to be willing to pay top dollar to reach them.

Marissa Mayer - The future of technology - YouTube
how you gonna make money, on mobile. Facebook is able to do it, enabled by data it has (targeting) and has a unrivaled competitive advantage (eats more than 70% of social media adversing budget). It's about execution now and new products - for Yahoo! Focus on Mobile, reorientate (right the ship in other direction, while still keeping tab on yahoo.com which is still sizeable business for yahoo) the company, management, team, employees. And acquisitions that help it make Yahoo! a mobile app company, relevant in the ecosystem (see Flurry acquisition, Brightroll, ... ad network/platform). Yahoos one disadvantage is that it doesn't have as much context to serve relevant - re-targeted ads to customers compared to FB, Twitter, Google. Same with Yahoo.com, its a bland/blunt page. No contextual, personal content nor advertising apart from cookies data derived. [...] "User data belongs to the end user." [...] "Portable" [...] "Standardized." [...] "Companies live and die by people/talent."

American Apparel: at first arty and subversive, then it got creepy | Business | The Guardian
The US retailer broke new ground when it first hit the British high street, but its edginess and internet porn aesthetic ended up tarnishing its image [...] So many of the attributes that were once unique to American Apparel – unisex clothes, ethical production, athletics-influenced designs and brilliant basics – remain important trends in fashion today. But now that everybody else is offering these too, all that differentiates American Apparel is its tarnished reputation. // what would Seth Godin recommend? Wall Street demands more than niche. Brand w 1000 True Fans, special identity, Tribe ... // sex sells is the easiest thing you can do, and Ryan Holiday (author) was behind it with AA. ... // It got the Hype cycle. it grew with it. now it has to live with the ramifications that it painted itself into that corner.

Spotify says sorry after privacy policy anger - BBC News
The new terms included access to pictures, contact phone numbers and sensor data stored on the user's smartphone. Mr Ek apologised in a blogpost for the "confusion" the changes had created. He promised an "update" to the new policy in order to clarify it but did not suggest that the terms themselves would be changed. "We should have done a better job in communicating what these policies mean and how any information you choose to share will - and will not - be used," Mr Ek wrote. He said Spotify would not access or import people's photos, contacts, sensor or GPS data without their permission. [ but you agree that they can, by accepting the TOS. what they should have included was clear why. even if it would reveal future products and product features/changes ] // &! bit.ly/1TXXhFN // &! on.recode.net/1NDtOMh // &! bit.ly/1K9Wxr1 - its about collecting data, and selling this data, and showing you more targeted ads based on this data.

Why an Instagram Tweak Spells the Beginning of a Multibillion-Dollar Industry | Re/code
Last week, Instagram — the image-based social network with more than 300 million users — made a change that barely received notice outside the tech world. It officially switched on its API, or application programming interface, for ads. [...] On a practical level, it means that the Internet’s newest advertising behemoth is officially open for business. Thanks in part to the new API, Instagram’s current mobile ad revenue of $595 million a year is expected to rocket to $2.8 billion by 2017 — leaving even giants like Twitter and Google in the rearview mirror in the U.S. market. [...] Ads can now be purchased by just about anyone, using online ad-buying tools offered by official Instagram partners. [...] businesses can now log onto third-party sites to create, target and place an ad — self-serve style. [...] In June, Instagram opened up ad-targeting tools that tap into user data from Facebook profiles.

Vlogger guidelines published by advertising committee - BBC News
New guidelines for video bloggers who enter marketing relationships with brands have been published. The rules encourage "vloggers" to label advertising content and explain when they have been asked to feature products sent to them by companies. The Committee of Advertising Practice (Cap) has issued its first guidance since a landmark Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruling last year. The ASA said several vlogs praising Oreo biscuits were not clearly marked.

800-Pound Publishing Gorilla Facebook Barges Back Into Blogging With “Notes” | TechCrunch
Facebook’s advantage is its distribution. The same weapon it’s used to barge into web publishing with Instant Articles and video hosting with its auto-play clips could help it invade blogging. It’s similar to how LinkedIn used its natural traffic to launch a professional-minded publishing network. People will write where they get an audience. If that’s Facebook, they’ll publish there. And while Twitter doesn’t discriminate, showing every post to everyone, Facebook’s filtered feed shows you what it thinks you’ll actually consume [and what's in their best own interest, keeping you on FB, favouring native content of link-out content]. [ step by step, FB is productizing - offering more to advertisers how to reach their user base, leverage its huge user base, Big Data, users data, the ceiling for FB earnings is far off! and thus its market cap (valuation). could nearly double again from its 250bn. it doubled in 5 years from IPO slump. ] // &! wrd.cm/1Pw2v5w

Why Has Apple Been Poaching Fashion Execs? | Fashion-Tech | BoF
Apple does not fight on Windows nor Google (Android) turf. It created (fact) a new category. Redefined the category of the Gadget, of the Phone. Of the Laptop. Of the Workstation. This (newest phone/better technology) is not just for the Geeks or Nerds. This is a status symbol you are seen with every day (Apple Watch, iPhone, MacBook (2015 version) at the Coffee shop and elsewhere). That person made a deliberate concious or not decision to buy the Apple product at that price. -vs- GNU/Linux or Windows or Android whatever for the same basic utility at a much affordable price. Who ever came up with that should be highlighted in the next Apple Book about Apples chapter post-Jobs.

NBCUniversal Buys Big Chunks of Vox Media and BuzzFeed | Re/code
[ independent outlets vanish from media landscape as the big ones invest or buy outright strategic (in their view) assets as they ponder the way forward into a future where they seem irrelevant (attributed at al by Facebook, Google, Twitter, dying newspaper, Appstore - the (smart)mobile phone, ... ] // Vox Media CEO Jim Bankoff — again, my boss — says that in addition to the NBCUniversal investment, the two companies now have a commercial partnership. That means, among other things, that they will collaborate on digital advertising, will work together on video advertising and video programming, and that you will likely see Vox Media employees more frequently on NBCU-owned networks like CNBC. (Re/code already had and continues to have a news partnership with CNBC). [...] Buzzfeed [apparently has] a revenue goal of $250 million in 2015. [...] NBCU more or less ignored digital for quiet some time. Still TV dwarfs digital publishing in real-terms $ ads spend, but TV is declining steadily.

Pando: “Video is an unfair advantage you either join or lose” [SPONSORED]
your Newsfeed in Facebook became 50% video over night, and those videos started to autoplay, grabbing all of your attention. I think the change was dramatic, and it changed social media from being this static journal to something where everything is moving all the time. [...] Video is not even remotely close to photos when it comes to complication, but it’s also 1000 times more powerful. [...] Just to give you an example, consider, autoplay video. It has different requirements. It needs to capture your attention very fast. When we design for autoplay video, how do we create the first few seconds to capture your attention? [ GaryV does edit his videos between YT and FB differently! ] [...] We expect the market will penalize someone who is not prioritizing video. [...] Photos and text are just becoming more and more invisible. // Snacking, Entertainment, Escapeism, - or - Utility (here is a 20% coupon)

Do You Trust Larry Page? - Stratechery by Ben Thompson
Given the fact that Alphabet née Google is the second most valuable enterprise in the world, it’s striking to consider Larry Page’s 2014 assessment of the company he co-founded with Sergey Brin: I think we’ve not succeeded as much as we’d like. [...] Even Google’s famously far-reaching mission statement, to “organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”, is not big enough for what he now has in mind. The aim: to use the money that is spouting from its search advertising business to stake out positions in boom industries of the future, from biotech to robotics. [...] Googles non-social approach to advertising vs Facebook and everyone else ] [ ad world begins finally to shift away from TV & other legacy forms & FB/Google are main beneficiaries coming years of changing ad spend ] [ Page/Brin want 2 lead the org 2 a new frontier. A new Google Search. &they think they a near it, ie self-driving car, that they think the timing is right NOW ]

Berlin’s Zeotap Raises $6.4M To Let Telcos Sell Customer Data To Mobile Advertisers | TechCrunch
[ the small print, its not free, ] Apparently, telecom operators are sitting on a huge amount of unique customer data that could provide much-needed revenue by being packaged up and sold to mobile advertisers and content providers to help them better target users. Or so says Zeotap, a startup that provides technology to enable telcos and marketers to unlock this potential treasure trove of user data. [...] for mobile advertisers the problem Zeotap is attempting to solve is the “severe shortage” of high-quality targeting data.

Facebook Brings Auto-Play Video Ads To Apps In Its Mobile Ad Network | TechCrunch
[ it doesn't disrupt (well, less) the experience, flow, ... like a washing powder ad on TV during GoT episode, after somebodies head was cut off ] Facebook’s making a killing with its native, in-feed, auto-play video ads, and now it’s going to let other developers earn money off them too. Today Facebook announced that it’s opening up its own best-performing ad units to publishers that show Facebook’s Audience Network ads to monetize their apps. Facebook says Audience Network publishers using its native ad units get 7X better performance than on their traditional banner ads.
