In the News: Any situation where someone complains about a problem, rather than act to solve it?

Question by xxOBLIVION: In the News: Any situation where someone complains about a problem, rather than act to solve it?
I need help finding some news, magazine, etc. articles about a real life situation where someone or some people complain about a problem, rather than doing something to solve it. They either start ignoring the problem or rely on other to solve it for them.

It’d be great if it was a deep, tragic story.

I also need an opposite story about when someone does act to solve a problem and something good happens, etc.

Thanks everyone.

Boone Pickens is investing a large amount of money in a wind project in a mid-west corridor. The idea is replace natural gas which meets the standards for a clean fuel by the vast majority of environmental people and generate electricity with wind. With nuclear power to follow to generate more electrical power. The nat gas will go to powering trucks, autos, so-called mobile energy. Pickens has set aside $ 58 million of his own money to advertise his plan which is at PickensPlan.com. T. Boone is an 80 year old man with no need for money and by a recent MRI study find Mr. Pickens has the brain of a 55 year old. He has the only practical plan. I feel his efforts meet your criteria for problem solving in a ocean of negativity.

Can someone explain why they would trust a news outlet that puts down all good economic news while taking?

Question by James E Lewis AKA choteau: Can someone explain why they would trust a news outlet that puts down all good economic news while taking?
the majority of their advertising money from “Precious Metals Funds” and “Precious Metals Providers” who make 30% profit before you get any Gold, Silver or Platinum, if you actually get anything but a paper certificate?

I don’t know.
Why wouldn’t they sue for slander if in fact economic news is being falsly aired by the network?
Makes no sense.

Why would someone want to advertise on a local news show that runs from 5-7?

Question by Queenie: Why would someone want to advertise on a local news show that runs from 5-7?
I work for a company where we are to sell advertising on a local news channel that runs from 5-7PM. Now most of my objections have been because of the time slot (and they feel that no one is in front of a TV watching at that hour), the cost (it costs more than adveritsing on cable) and the fact that it is still a very new show (meaning lack of engaged audience) the last and final problem is that the newscast runs from 5-7 like I said before but during the rest of the day all that runs on the particular channel is INFOMERCIALS. So, could someone please tell me why someone would want to adveritse on this channel and/or if they have any ideas to get people to advertise on this channel. Thanks.

Do you have to determine the best target market for your advertise? Who are the station’s targeted viewers? I would guess that SAHMs and the retired would be the most likely. I know I started watching local news when I became a SAHM, and most of the elderly folks I know watch local news. Some people may put on the local news when they come home. You could start with advertisers who would be relevant. Maybe carpet cleaners or other home services, taxis… You could also look for advertisers based on the content of the news program. Are there restaurant or movie reviews? Our local news has a green feature. Watch other local news programs and see who their advertisers are. Try to come up with some equation that makes the cost seem more palatable. X price per viewer or something like that.

I think that the sale of this product may be a process. You will have to call people and follow back up to generate the buzz for your station. The first call might just be inquiring if they are familiar with the news program. Ask them if they will watch it for you in the next week. Say you are genuinely interested in the program and people’s opinion and tell them why you think it is so great. Be sincere, if you can’t get a bit excited about the product you probably won’t be able to sell it. Find out what sets this news program apart from other local programs – is it the newscasters, in-depth features on local concerns?

Question by David_Geneva: Urgently looking for an article, someone could help please?
Hi, I am urgently looking for an article called “Language and cognitive processes from a developmental perspective”. The author is Karmiloff-Smith, and the article was released in 1985 by the “Language and cognitive processes” magazine. (ISSN = 0169-0965 ) The editor is Psychology Press. Lot of mentions for this article appear all over the Internet but I was unable to find the entire document. I have searched the web, usenet, using Google Scholar and private database such as Scopus. Thanks in advance for you help!
