    News: Lords of Dogtown Release

    Finally, a movie for the skaters. Considering the prevalence and popularity of Extreme sports, we think it is about time producers and screen writers take notice. Hopefully, this will lead to more quality films.

    Talk about Extreme ! You will be exposed to around 6,000 promotion messages of some type today, according to advertising research workers in the field. Extreme  marketers work hard behind the scenes to ensure they know everything about you and your purchasing habits. It has grown substantially worse as time and technology have evolved, and is continually changing with the use of algorithms, and your tendencies.

    By monitoring every website you visit, every show you watch,  every stroke of your keyboard in some instances. what  you browse for, and look at, they want to know everything about so they can refine there ads to entice you to purchase there product. Market research and advertising used to be quite straightforward. You simply set the new a new before a bunch of individuals and had them fill out a survey inquiring if they enjoyed it, what level of enjoyment it gave them and what aspects they did not enjoy it. They could then revise or refine the product to individuals likings.

    So for instance, your digital recording allows you  to watch-on demand television and skip all the crap advertising, but also monitors what you view, right down to which scenes you replayed over and over and rewound. But of course the net is light years ahead of TV in monitoring your browsing customs. Google is already working on customizing its search results based on your own private browsing history, which needs simply that it keeps an extensive database of each thing you have ever attempted to locate online.

    Websites, Facebook pages, message boards, chat rooms, Usenet groups--everywhere the web denizens can post their talk-filled views--are being tracked. The dialogue is subsequently fed into software that compute the present buzz or tendencies. If You Believe It Is Terrible Now ...


    ESPN's X Games announces the first wave of athletes who have been invited to compete at X Games 11 in Los Angeles. The event will air live on ESPN, ABC and ESPN Deportes.
    All athletes receiving invitations to compete at X Games are chosen by a sport-specific selection committee. Criteria and timing of invitations varies by sport and discipline, as it is based on the state and event schedules of that particular sport. The only exception is each gold medalist from X Games 10 (2004) receives an automatic invitation to compete.
    Information on each committee and its sport's invitation process can be found on each X Games sport organizer website (links listed below). The sport of Surfing is the only sport in which the athletes are selected by each team's coach, not by a committee.
    Athlete lists are subject to change at any time.

    Overview:
    In the 1970s, a group of teenage surfers from a tough neighborhood known as "Dogtown" in Venice, CA pioneered a revolutionary new style of skateboarding. Riding the waves at the Pacific Ocean pier, the Z-Boys, known for their aggressive style and hard street attitude, combined the death-defying moves of surfing with the art of skateboarding and became overnight sensations and local legends. With empty pools as their canvas, the Z-boys paved the way to what is now referred to as "extreme sports," and created a lifestyle that spread infectiously to become a worldwide counterculture phenomenon. But all of this fame would take its toll on the friendships that they thought would last a lifetime as the sport that started out as an afternoon hobby turned into big business.

     

    The magazine industry is getting off to a rocky start in 2014. While magazine ad pages declined in large part thanks to weakness in two key advertising categories, the tide also appears to have turned for tablet advertising, one of the lone bright spots in recent years. Print magazine ad pages fell 4 percent in the first quarter of 2014, according to the latest report from the Publishers Information Bureau, a division of the MPA--

    The Association for Magazine Media. Tablet ad units across the 56 magazines with digital editions measured by the PIB fell 7 percent. (Half of that decline, however, was due to a decline in tablet units at a single non-MPA member title.). MPA president and CEO Mary Berner said that most of the ad page loss-- nearly two-thirds in total-- was driven by a steep decline in tech and retail advertising, and much of that decline was due to three particular companies' changing advertising strategies.

    Microsoft, which had inflated the tech category's 2013 numbers with its major advertising push around a product launch, pulled back significantly this year, while on the retail side, both Target and J.C. Penney have slashed advertising budgets. "There were pockets of strength and pockets of challenges," "When you look across 196 magazines, one of the biggest declines, in retail, was due to two accounts pulling back. There's a lot of noise underneath the numbers both bad and good.".

    Women's service magazines, many of which have undergone recent redesigns in an effort to maintain relevance with modern readers, were hit hard. Good Housekeeping, Better Homes & Gardens, Redbook, Family Circle, Woman's Day, Ladies' Home Journal and All You all saw ad pages decline around 20 percent or more. The more lifestyle-oriented titles weren't immune, either: ad pages at Martha Stewart Living dropped a steep 35 percent. While fashion magazines have been a relatively strong category in recent years (in ad pages, at least; they've had some well-documented newsstand troubles), this quarter was a mixed bag. Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire,

    InStyle and Glamour all increased their ad pages (the latter by 12 percent, a testament to the success of Glamour's recent Anna Wintour-led revamp), while category stalwarts Vogue and Elle both saw slight declines, as did W and Allure. Harder hit were Teen Vogue (down 17 percent), Lucky (down 20 percent despite having received its own Wintour makeover last year) and People StyleWatch (down 22 percent). Even the food category suffered. Bon Appetit, Cooking Light, Saveur and Food & Wine all saw ad page declines in the single digits, while Food Network magazine dropped 16 percent. Shelter magazines appear to be experiencing a resurgence thanks to some significant growth in home furnishings advertising. Architectural Digest, Traditional Home, Veranda, Coastal Living and Dwell all significantly boosted their ad pages, while the fast-growing HGTV Magazine was up an impressive 24 percent. Print magazine ad pages fell 4 percent in the first quarter of 2014, according to the latest report from the Publishers Information Bureau, a division of the MPA--
