how retailers are making use of Pinterest and Instagram - Direct Commerce magazine - covering every channel from every angle - By Miri Thomas | Publication date: 08/02/2012 | Category: News We’re all familiar with Facebook and Twitter and increasingly more retailers are dabbling with mobile apps to communicate with consumers “on-the-go”. But there are two relatively new kids on the block, at least as far as retail is concerned, and they are Pinterest and Instagram. Pinterest bills itself as an “online pinboard” allowing users to browse images and “like” or “repin” them, they can also comment on other’s pins and pin items of interest to their boards from other websites. Pinterest has been a hit with investors, raising $27 million in its latest funding round this past October, reportedly valuing the start-up at $200 million.
Men spend more when women are scarce MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Men make more impulse purchases, borrow more money and save less when they think they outnumber women, a study by the University of Minnesota found. The study conducted by the university's Carlson School of Management asked men to read news articles suggesting their local population had either more men or more women, USA Today reported. When articles suggested a surplus of men, the savings rate among study participants fell 42 percent and the men indicated they were willing to borrow 84 percent more each month. Lead researcher Vladas Griskevicius said real life evidence of this behavior was found in the state of Georgia. When the study was conducted there were 1.18 single men for every single woman in Columbus, Ga., and the average consumer debt was $3,479 higher than in Macon, Ga., which had 0.78 single men for every woman.
Wan direction. THERE was a time when pop was raw. Music made by people who had something to say, who were angry or witty or sad, and there were so many people doing it that you could choose which genre you wanted your angst delivered in. There was operatic drama courtesy of Freddie Mercury, thrashing rage from the Sex Pistols, poetry by Bob Dylan, drugs and sex and heartbreak and hating your parents by everyone from Suede to Eminem by way of Oasis and the Rolling Stones. None of it was played, interminably, on telephone helplines and in lifts and supermarkets because it was the only decent thing anyone had produced for ten years, to the point where hearing a few bars of something you used to love made you scream and claw at your own ears. But that's the point we've arrived at - from pop that was red in tooth and claw we now have the occasional Adele, producing lovely heartfelt songs we all like listening to right up until the 75th time you've heard it from a car insurance company.
Ford GPW Jeep 1942 British Airborne I acquired my 1942 Ford GPW in 2003 as a wreck, I paid too much for it and I bought it on a whim because I did not touch it for another 7 years! Whilst watching a repeat of the Goodwood Revival on the TV over New Year 2010, my wife mentioned that she would like to go to the Goodwood Revival. I stated that I did not have a suitable vehicle only to be told "why don't you restore that old jeep?" Like a fool I said great idea. The vehicle was dragged out from the back of our storage unit and totally dismantled. She was in a bad way! Apple tribute logo a Web hit Credit: Jonathan Mak Long When Steve Jobs resigned from Apple in August, 7,000 miles away in Hong Kong, graphic design student Jonathan Mak Long, "shocked" by the CEO's departure, did what he knew best: He created a design to honor the Apple co-founder. The 19-year-old posted the image, the Apple logo with the bite changed to a profile of Jobs, to his Tumblr blog. Known as Jonathan Mak, he initially received about 80 notes on the image. Then word came this past Wednesday that Jobs had died, after a long battle with cancer. Mak reposted the homage, which this time caught fire on the Web, attracting an almost immediate response of 10,000 likes and reblogs on his Tumblr site and surging to 180,000 -- in one day.

Facebook Photos of Drunken Students May Indicate Real Alcohol Problems, Study Says <br/><a href=" US News</a> | <a href=" Business News</a> Copy College students who post the details of their drunken nights on Facebook can end up with a few problems on their hands – embarrassment, regret or explanations to mom and dad. But a new study from researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison suggests those Facebook postings may also signal that a student is at clinical risk of having a drinking problem. Dr. Megan Moreno, the study's lead author and a pediatrician, said she often talks with teenage patients and parents who are worried about college students they know who post status updates on Facebook about drinking.
Castro takes charge of Italy Leicester prop Martin Castrogiovanni will captain Italy against Wales in Rome on Saturday in a team featuring four changes. Castrogiovanni, who wins his 94th cap, takes over from Sergio Parisse for the game at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. Parisse is serving a 40-day ban - 10 days of which were suspended - after being sent off playing for his club Stade Francais in a French Top 14 game against Bordeaux-Begles last weekend. Castrogiovanni, who skippered his country in last season's Six Nations game against Scotland, takes over the leadership reins, with Manoa Vosawai packing down at number eight instead of Parisse. Kristopher Burton takes over from Luciano Orquera at fly-half while Edoardo Gori starts ahead of Tobias Botes to form a new half-back combination.
