Daniel Burrus: The Future of Advertising Sales -- It's all About Integration
One of the reasons ad dollars are falling for newspapers, as well as traditional media, is that they don't fully understand the new realities of marketing. Two key shifts are taking place that media companies can no longer ignore.
First, media and marketing have always been about storytelling. Advertisers have a story to tell, and the media is there to help tell it. Today, however, media and marketing go beyond mere storytelling; now it's about storytelling and dialogue. That's why social...

The contributions of western education to development in Nigeria.
If a man is born blind, he may not appreciate what it means to see the light, but ones his sight is recovered he would definitely not want to be thrown back into perpetual darkness. Darkness, blindness or ignorance are terms that could be interchangeably used to describe the state of Nigeria before the advent of western education. No matter how beautiful or promising an environment may be, it would neither be seen nor appreciated in darkness. Light is needed to appreciate anything good, amend anything that is not good enough or throw away anything that is bad outright. Western education came with light appreciating...

Corruption in “In the Shadow of War”
There are many people that possess a clear sense of good and evil. However, in many cases there is no good or evil in decisions: one must base their decisions on chances of survival. Over time, enough suppression of moral can lead to corruption: this can happen whether it is willing or unwilling. In Ben Okri’s “In the Shadow of War”, there are characters that have been forced into these decisions in order to continue living. The theme of corruption is evident throughout the story; this is seen most clearly though the vicious actions of soldiers, the apologetic actions of the father, and the depraved actions of the government.
An example of the...

Also, people's interests are increasingly changing and aligning with the art attractions of the latest century like metal music over classical or carnatic, plastic decorative furniture over ancient terracota for their homes and so on.
