This man was holding up this sign in Martin Place, Sydney, trying to get the sign seen on the Seven Network’s program ‘Sunrise’. The rest of the sign said ‘Sunrise 4th of July’ and a website which I will not advertise here. The stars of the show David Koch, Melissa Doyle, Natalie Barr and Mark Baretta were out with fans taking photos and signing autographs as the police attempted to stop the man showing his sign.
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.
Answer by mamakin 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 nemo: I want to subscribe to a USENET group called alt.security. How to do it ? Can I subscribe using Thunderbird?
Please explain to me clearly. I always find it difficult to know more about USENET groups and tired reading FAQ about USENET groups.
Answer by peace maker You need to have a news reader program on your system to read the USENET news. An example of such a program is Microsoft Outlook Express (not Microsoft Outlook). This is a NNTP client and a news reader. Then you need to connect to an NNTP server (There are thousands of them, search for some of them). When you connect to one of the servers, it will show you which all USENET groups it can support. Your alt.security will be there most probably. And then you can use it to read the news.
I know I am not sufficiently clear but right now I do not have more time to write about it.
Then there are some servers which allows only reading but not posting whereas some are there which allows both. This whole thing is actually very simple but takes a while to understand.
The easier solution is go to groups.google.com and navigate to alt.security and read it online.
Using a usenet client and an easy to use indexing web site you can download an unlimited number of files. This is a better alternative to bittorent. Go to the site and read the FAQs to see why. www.nzbidx.com Video Rating: 4 / 5
Question by skeeter: I DOWNLOADED MOVIES FROM USENET.NL WHEN I BURN A MOVIE TO DISC IT WANT PLAY IN ANY DVD PLAYER. WHY?
IT ONLY PLAYS IN MY COMPUTER
Answer by Mr.Main Becuase the movie is probably in avi format, you need to change it over to mp4 or what ever other format your dvd can play (use Nero), AVI format is not supported on most DVD players yet, im not even sure if it is going to be supported in order to stop copying movies…Its a crime !!!
