Quick, call in the cameras, send out the press releases, watch closely and notify the neighbors: Los Angeles’ elected officials are doing … their jobs! For all the pomp and circumstance surrounding the filling of the city’s 80,173rd pothole Tuesday, you’d think that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and City Council members Wendy Greuel and Tom LaBonge have forgotten that this is the sort of thing they were elected – and get handsomely paid – to do. Don’t get us wrong: After years of neglect of the city’s roads, we’re thrilled that elected officials are finally taking potholes seriously. But let’s get real – this is no heroic effort. The politicians were merely using tax dollars that L.A. residents have paid for just that purpose. It’s great to see public servants actually serving the public. But it’s disheartening to see them act like this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

How Women Are Changing Our Worldview, One Ad at a Time

first_imgTrends Driving the Loyalty Marketing Industry I’m frequently an “only.” I’m often the only woman in a boardroom, speaking on a conference agenda, or attending an executive meeting. And I work in a field that’s often considered female-led: Media, PR, and advertising tend to have a higher percentage of women. Even so, at the most senior levels, women are left behind.According to the 2018 Women in the Workplace study by McKinsey & Company and LeanIn.org, a measly 4 percent of Fortune 500 companies have a female CEO. Further, only 19 percent of senior management positions are held by women. Similarly, in the advertising industry, only 11 percent of creative directors are female. And the CEOs of women’s lifestyle media outlets like Bustle, Refinery29, PopSugar, and PureWow are all men. Women are underrepresented at every level in corporate America, despite obtaining more degrees, even at the doctoral level.So why does this matter? Because if a company’s people don’t look like the society surrounding the business, how can products and services — and, by extension, their marketing — be expected to meet society’s needs? Diverse teams generate better ideas, and better ideas improve the bottom line. Similar to the insufficiency of female directors in Hollywood, our society is robbed of the ability to hear stories in advertising that accurately depict life from women’s perspective.How a Lack of Representation Hurts CompaniesThis lack of representation impacts business in two ways. The first is quite simple: Stereotypes in advertising are bad for business. Compared to gender-balanced brands, male-skewed brands are valued, on average, $9 billion less. This suggests that too many brand marketers maintain an antiquated view of who buys their products, both now and in the future. This fallacy results in losing market share to brands with broader gender appeal that are liked by both men and women.The proof is found in Kantar’s AdReaction study, “Getting Gender Right,” which recently discovered that females are over-targeted in categories like laundry and household products and under-targeted in areas like automotive. Being “progressive” these days can be as easy as challenging outdated assumptions that only women buy laundry detergent and dish soap.Change is happening, but not fast enough. In our research at Exverus Media, alongside Nielsen AdIntel, we found that several traditionally female-targeted brands like Huggies, Pampers, Kotex, Tampax, and Tide have all recently begun shifting their media mix, perhaps realizing that men buy diapers and women watch sports. Advertising investments for these products on ESPN increased by more than 32 times over the past 10 years, even when accounting for inflation.On the flip side, businesses can be positively impacted by ensuring gender equality, first on their boards and subsequently in their media and messaging. The brands that most quickly disrupt the status quo will have the most to gain: Valuation growth of disrupter brands is 165 percent higher than incumbent brands, according to Kantar.How Brands Can — and Should — AdaptWith the rise of online-based direct-to-consumer brands like Glossier, Birchbox, Stitch Fix, and ThirdLove — all women-founded — the traditional thinking by old-school male-led brands is being shaken up. These D2C brands cater to the explicit needs and desires of their target audience — women — and, therefore, deliver a superior experience to those women while old-guard brands are flat or in decline.In response, we’re starting to see incumbent brands employ female directors like Kim Gehrig, who took on the recent controversial Gillette ad. The ad’s anti-toxic masculinity TV spot delivered “unprecedented levels of both media coverage and consumer engagement,” according to P&G CFO Jon Moeller.“Only” women aren’t waiting around for change — it’s happening now. One example can be found in an organization called WIMMIES (Women in Media), a 501(c)(6) nonprofit networking group for women in the Los Angeles area working in digital media. “Wimmies’ mission is to empower women to ascend the ranks in the media and marketing industries. We do this through networking and educational events. We’ve all heard the oft-referenced quote, ‘It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.’ As a woman, you have to cover both,” says Amy Halvorsen, Wimmies co-founder and digital account executive at Disney Interactive.She goes on to explain, “Women drive the world economy, and it’s a financial miss to exclude their voices. In this era…it’s risky for media companies and brands not to include women at the highest echelons.”Other organizations dedicated to increasing women’s visibility in executive roles include She Runs It and The Female Quotient, which hosts women-inclusive embedded series at events ranging from Cannes to SXSW. By expanding the number of women who have decision-making power and influence over the advertising produced, women are far less likely to be marginalized within ads themselves.It’s a strong call to action, not only for women in the marketing industry, but also across the country. When women’s voices aren’t being heard — whether it’s in meetings or in the media — we need to take it upon ourselves to seek them out. It’s not just about leaving money on the table; it’s also about our responsibility to each other and our shared future.

Van with 140m of meth smashes into police car

first_imgSydney: Australian authorities have uncovered a USD140 million stash of amphetamines after an alleged criminal’s run-in with the law saw his drug-filled van crash into an officer’s car outside a police station. Security camera footage released on Tuesday showed a white van ploughing into the front of a vehicle parked outside a suburban Sydney police station before speeding off down the street. Police said the alleged 26-year-old driver was pulled over about an hour later, less than a 10-minute drive away from the accident scene. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USThe van was said to be packed with moving boxes containing 237 kilograms of methylamphetamine, an illegal drug commonly known as “ice’, with a total estimated street value of AUS 200 million. Australia has a growing problem with meth, with a government report released last year showing the country has proportionally more users than most nations. The van driver has been charged with large commercial drug supply, negligent driving, and not giving particulars to police. He was due to appear in a Sydney court later on Tuesday. No one was injured in the incident.last_img read more

One Metric by Which the NBA Is More Popular Than the NFL

One Metric by Which the NBA Is More Popular Than the NFL

We often hear about the NFL’s dominance in the mindshare of sports fans, and it’s hard to argue with the facts and figures floating around to support this notion. Pro football has been No. 1 in the annual Harris Poll survey of Americans’ favorite sports for three consecutive decades, and the NFL’s television ratings routinely trounce those of other sports. But, curiously, I was fooling around with Google Trends, and there is at least one area in which the NFL is not crushing the opposition: Google searches.The NFL is trailing the NBA by about 5 percent since Google’s Trends search data became available in 2004.There are a lot of factors that can cloud these results, including the possibility that not all search terms are being correctly attributed to each league. This is a particular issue for “football,” which is, as you probably know, what everyone outside the U.S. calls soccer. Recent improvements to Trends make this issue less problematic, but it’s still worth mentioning.The numbers also include worldwide searches; the NBA has a large global presence (particularly in Asia), and Google is, by definition, biased toward countries with a greater number of Internet users. For what it’s worth, the NFL is still tops by quite a bit within the U.S.Even so, it’s an interesting data point about the relative global reach of America’s biggest sports leagues. If we look at things from an international perspective, the NFL is not the behemoth it usually appears to be stateside. read more
