Assorted Canned Beverages (various Manufacturers) - Assorted canned beverages (various manufacturers) Beverage marketers have long recognized the value of a proprietary bottle shape when forging a brand’s identity. Coca-Cola’s familiar contour glass bottle, the classic case in point, has become so synonymous with the brand that its communicative oomph rivals that of the product’s script lettering. But how does a company maintain that sense of package-driven equity when selling its product in aluminum cans, which don’t lend themselves to unique shapes....   [tags: essays research papers] 782 words

Analysis of Little Girl Lost by Blake - Analysis of Little Girl Lost by Blake "A Little GIRL Lost" from Songs of Experience is one of Blake's most important poems. Though judging the aesthetic value of a poem is nearly impossible, I would contend that "A Little Girl Lost" is "better" than "The Little Girl Lost" found in Songs of Innocence. Perhaps because "A Little Girl Lost" was composed as an afterthought to its original counterpart, having been first written in "Innocence," it acts as a conclusion to the original poem. The two poems both observe a young girl as she encounters a world filled with innocence (in "The Little Girl Lost") and a world of experience ("A Little Girl Lost")....   [tags: Poem Poetry Analysis Poet Essays] 987 words

Culture of Critique - Americans have embraced debate since before we were a country. The idea that we would provide reasoned support for any position that we took is what made us different from the English king. Our love of debate came from the old country, and embedded itself in our culture as a defining value. Thus, it should not come as a surprise that the affinity for debate is still strong, and finds itself as a regular feature of the mainstream media. However, if Deborah Tannen of the New York Times is correct, our understanding of what it means to argue may be very different from what it once was; a “culture of critique” has developed within our media, and it relies on the exclusive opposition of two conflicting positions (Tannen)....   [tags: American Culture]

The Masses - ... 537) In mid-1916, John Sloan and several other artists decided to quit working for The Masses. The magazine continued on without them for another year and a half. Besides this problem within the magazine itself, the atmosphere outside The Masses was changing. World War I had started in 1914, and even though the U.S. had not entered the war, there was a growing fear of Bolsheviks and Socialists. The Masses was no longer allowed in many college libraries and bookstores. In New York in 1916, the distributors Ward and Gow refused to sell the magazine in subway newsstands because parts of the magazine were "unpatriotic" and "blasphemous." The Canadian government even banned The Masses from Canadian mail, and in Boston and Philadelphia, large magazine distribution companies boycotted the magazine....   [tags: Sociology ]

Multimedia and the Mass Communication of Science - Scientific studies are published for the scientific community. More specifically, they tend to be written with the expectation of being read by peers. This may seem obvious, and yet it shouldn't be. The style of writing that occurs when writing to peers cannot help but alienate a portion of the audience that should be informed. This also results in increasingly isolated divisions of the scientific community and widens the gaps between disciplines in terms of interests, language, and knowledge.
