first_img The interview of Melania Trump sure was interesting. Melania, when asked about her husband’s alleged affair or fling, or whatever you want to call it, responded by saying that her husband’s infidelity is not a concern of hers or her focus…..REALLY? Yeah, I bet. We have heard the phrase, “LOCK HER UP”, so many times referring to Hillary, so I say regarding Melania, “HOOK HER UP” to the lie detector!…lol, I don’t believe Melania, at all. What woman doesn’t care if her husband is messing around with other women??? She must be going solo to Africa to get away from him, and she won’t even hold his hand at times when he reaches to hold her hand……I think she looks stupid in that man outfit, the white pants, cream blazer, white shirt, skinny black tie, and what is that hat called? Light cream fedora, maybe? With the black band……looks really stupid!

Reply October 14, 2018 at 12:27 am The Anatomy of Fear This is why I won’t be voting for the likes of Trump (during the Presidential election), Rick Scott, and DeSantis, plus the likes of the other GOPs who share their same mindset….Why would anybody vote for someone as their elected representative, who votes on their healthcare issues, and votes to diminish their healthcare plans? Example: I was looking up what is on the lists and is considered “pre-existing conditions”….as I have diabetes, and also high blood pressure, among some other conditions. I couldn’t believe the list! Under Trump’s healthcare plan, rape, yes rape! is considered a “pre-existing” condition! Also pregnancy! And being a domestic abuse victim! People, this is not right! I hope women, especially, will take heed, and not vote for these scoundrels! Also, who knew, acne is on the list too, as well as many things, I wouldn’t consider would be worthy of denying someone health coverage. We need different leaders who aren’t number one, anti-women! And number two, leaders more compassionate for the people, and number three, leaders who represent the people, not the corporations, like the huge insurance companies! I am sick, yes sick, of these GOPS! I wonder if being sick of the GOPS, is a “pre-existing” condition?????? October 14, 2018 at 12:40 am October 14, 2018 at 12:56 am The Keanu West interview with Trump was interesting also. Trump finally kept his mouth shut and was decent acting. Why can’t he act that way all the time? People would respect him better if he didn’t act like a total idiot with his mouth, like he does most of the time. I think Keanu West was there to enjoy the limelight, hoping to get a position in the White House Trump administration possibly, or to help in getting someone a parole. However, I believe that he was very sincere when he stated to Trump that he didn’t have a father figure growing up, and now that he is married into the Kim K family, he isn’t around hardly any male figures. I believe him totally on that. It really is sad to hear him say that. Also, his mother died, not too long ago, from cosmetic surgery, is what I read, so he is doubly hurting. Yes, again, I believe him on the lack of having a father’s presence, or a male role model in his life. He could have done without the bad language at the WH, and calling the president, “bro” though…..

first_img You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here … And how advertising shaped the holiday as we know itBy Dr. Samantha N. N. Cross, and first published in theconversation.comI have always been intrigued by Thanksgiving – the traditions, the meal, the idea of a holiday that is simply about being thankful.For my family, Thanksgiving is all about the food. Some foods, like turkey and mashed potatoes, may be familiar. But there are a few twists. Since I grew up in the Caribbean, I’m allowed a Caribbean dish or two. The reliability of the menu – with a little flexibility sprinkled in – seems to unite us as a family while acknowledging our different cultural backgrounds.Chances are you and your family have similar traditions. Filipino-American families might include pancit. Russian-American families might serve a side dish of borscht. That’s what makes Thanksgiving unique. It’s a holiday embraced by people regardless of their religion or ethnicity.Yet despite this adaptability, there’s a core part of the meal that almost everyone embraces. How did this come to be? Although few appreciate it, advertisers have shaped the meal as much as family tradition.A uniquely broad appealWhen Sarah Josepha Hale, the editor of Godey’s Lady’s Book, first advocated for Thanksgiving as a national holiday in 1846, she argued that it would unify the country. In our research, my colleagues and I have been able to show that Hale’s vision for the holiday has been largely fulfilled: Inclusivity of people and traditions has been Thanksgiving’s hallmark quality.A reason for its broad appeal is that it lacks any association with an institutionalized religion. As one interviewee told us, “There is no other purpose than to sit down with your family and be thankful.” And after interviewing a range of people – from those born in the U.S. to immigrants from countries like South Africa, Australia and China – it became obvious that the principles and rituals they embraced during the holiday were universal no matter the culture: family, food and gratitude.But as a relatively new holiday – one not tied to a religious or patriotic tradition – a shared understanding of the celebration and the meal is crucial to ensure its long-term survival.While there might be subtle variations, the Thanksgiving meal is the lodestone of the holiday, the magnet that brings people together. Today, familiar items constitute the meal: turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, gravy, alcohol, salad, apple pie and pumpkin pie. Many of our interviewees tended to serve some version of this list.But why these items and not others? What makes turkey, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie so special? My colleagues and I studied 99 years of Thanksgiving ads in Good Housekeeping magazine to find out.Marketing a ritualStarting with Thanksgiving’s early champion, Sarah Josepha Hale, the history of Thanksgiving is rooted in marketing. Marketers not only helped create many of the rituals and cultural myths associated with the Thanksgiving meal, but they also legitimized and maintained them.Aladdin Cooking Utensils advertises its double roaster in a 1920 issue of Good Housekeeping. Good HousekeepingInitially, the Thanksgiving turkey competed with other meats, like duck, chicken, and goose, for the centerpiece at the Thanksgiving table.But by the 1920s, turkey had become the only meat advertised. Early ads would focus on how to prepare and present the perfect bird, promoting branded tools like roasters, ranges, pop-up thermometers and oven-cooking bags.Iconic Swift’s Premium turkey ads focused on the sacredness of the meal by featuring families at prayer, giving thanks before the meal begins. The importance of the turkey to the Thanksgiving celebration dominates, helping to perpetuate the Thanksgiving turkey tradition.Meanwhile, early ads for the Eatmor Cranberry Company positioned their whole cranberries as a perfect complement to any and all Thanksgiving meat dishes. This brand dominated until the 1930s when another brand, Ocean Spray, entered with its canned gelatin cranberry sauce.Eatmor Cranberries – which used to be the king of Thanksgiving cranberry sauce – advertises in a November 1926 issue of Good Housekeeping. Good HousekeepingAds for both brands implied that cranberry sauce has been around since the first Thanksgiving dinner, which was highly unlikely. However, the brand positioning war successfully promoted cranberry sauce as the natural condiment for the Thanksgiving turkey. Ocean Spray would triumph and, to this day, promotes whole cranberries and canned gelatin.Considered by many to be the quintessential Thanksgiving dessert, pumpkin pie also wasn’t present at the first Thanksgiving meal. (The Pilgrims lacked the butter, wheat flour and sugar to make the pastry.) Nonetheless, beginning as early as 1925, a range of brands – for example, Borden’s, Snowdrift, Mrs. Smith’s and Libby’s – have competed fiercely to connect pumpkin pie to the season, the holiday and the meal. It’s a rivalry that continues to this day.The role of the consumerNot every product category or brand succeeded in becoming a core part of the Thanksgiving meal.A Swift’s Premium Turkey ad from 1964. WishbookA Welch’s ad from the 1960s implies that the first Thanksgiving meal included juice made from grapes. In 1928, Diamond marketed their walnuts as an accessory to dress up Thanksgiving dishes. Despite vociferous ad campaigns, few associate Welch’s grape juice or Diamond walnuts with Thanksgiving today.But those early 20th-century ads for turkey clearly resonated: Today, nearly 88 percent of U.S. households have turkey on Thanksgiving, and approximately 20 percent of the turkeys consumed in any given year are consumed at Thanksgiving. This is a testament to the enduring influence of marketing on the holiday. For brands like Butterball (formerly Swift’s Premium), Thanksgiving is big business.Whether you’re a turkey fan or not, prefer apple pie to pumpkin pie, enjoy canned gelatin over whole cranberry sauce, by celebrating Thanksgiving, you play a role as well. Marketers may have shaped many of the rituals of the holiday. But all Americans – from all backgrounds – certainly do their part to maintain them.After all, brands need customers to survive.Dr. Samantha N. N. Cross is an Associate Professor of Marketing in the Debbie and Jerry Ivy College of Business at Iowa State University. Her research examines how diverse entities, identities, perspectives, and beliefs co-exist in consumers, households and society. She incorporates innovative multi-method approaches in her research, which has been presented in several national and international forums. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The Anatomy of Fear As for giblet gravy, now really I could do without the giblets in my gravy. My mama, and also my grandma, would always add giblets to the Thanksgiving gravy, but I would pick out those nasty little giblet parts. Gizzards, livers, and hearts pieces…..oh no, thank you. Mama would always fix the dishes I liked, for Thanksgiving for me, her amazing fattening macaroni and cheese, and my other favorite, her fruit cocktail salad with marshmallows, sour cream, and coconut flakes. She also would make sure she had my husband’s favorite dishes on the Thanksgiving table too, and his was turkey dumplings, and sweet potato yam casserole with marshmallows on top, along with the other standard Thanksgiving dishes, of course. Oh, I really miss my mama and grandma, and their wonderful cooking.

While the hurricanes did cause a dip in payroll employment in September, the unemployment rate did continue to drop, it noted. The positive picture the FOMC is painting is leading industry insiders to speculate that the committee will raise rates in December.Household spending has been heating up at a moderate rate, while growth in business fixed investments has been expanding in recent quarters, the FOMC noted. Gas prices pumped up in the wake of the hurricanes, magnifying overall inflation in September. By contrast, inflation for items other than food and energy stayed soft. On a 12-month basis, both inflation measures have diminished this year and are hovering below 2 percent, the committee reported.Market-based measures of inflation compensation continue to lay low, while survey-based measures of longer-term inflation expectations are little changed, on balance, the FOMC said.Hurricane-related troubles and related rebuilding efforts will continue to affect economic activity, employment, and inflation in the near term, the report said, but the storms are unlikely to materially change the course of the U.S. economy over the medium term. As such, the committee continues to expect that economic activity will widen at a moderate pace, and labor market conditions will strengthen a bit more. Inflation on a 12-month basis is expected to remain somewhat below 2 percent in the near term but to stabilize around the FOMC’s 2 percent objective over the medium term. Near-term risks to the economic outlook appear roughly balanced, but the committee is watching inflation developments closely.In other Fed news, President Donald Trump is slated to announce his nomination for Fed chair tomorrow. Fed Gov. Jerome Powell is considered to be a shoo-in for the job, sources close to the proceedings say. If so, Powell will replace outgoing Fed Chair Janet Yellen when her first term ends in February. Subscribelast_img read more
