I have a psychology B.A. and an advertising and marketing A.A.S. I don’t know if political science would have helped, but perhaps marketing is suitable for campaigning.

As someone who has ran for senate and am about to again. my cousin is a senator. the best advise is to get your face out there as much as possible, it is not who you know either,it is who get there face out there the most knocks on enough doors,add on tv, news coverage, and say what people want to here.So when they go to the polls you are who is on their mind. Have fund raisers.

What program or service do you recommend for a usenet search engine?

Question by Freedom: What program or service do you recommend for a usenet search engine?
Hello,

I am very new to usenet. I’ve got a bandwidth limit (250 Gigabytes comcast) that I am trying to maintain, I’ve discovered that downloading the headers for newsgroups that I subscribe to can be massive. I discovered that there is a usenet search engine or two (hopefully more). The two that I have tried are grabit and usenet explorer. Both seem to do the job well, however I slightly lean more towards favoring grabit, their program seems faster, easier to use and their search seems more complete. I am hoping that there are more than these two to pick from, if you know of any, I’d love to hear about them.

Thank you.

There are several good search engines for usenet, some require a small fee (usually a few dollars a month), while others are free. There is a good list of search engines here: http://binarynewshowto.com/resources – this site also has good general usenet / newsgroups tutorials.

What is a good TV/DVD streaming service in Canada?

Question by po: What is a good TV/DVD streaming service in Canada?
I am looking for a service similar to netflix on demand where you can watch unlimited tv shows for a monthly premium, but for Canada. Does such a thing exist or are we still crippled with the licensing laws?

I don’t want a pay/episode service (like itunes) because the cost would be too great. I am totally sick of torrents, rapidshare, megavideo and whatnot. I don’t want a usenet account because I don’t want to deal with searching and downloading.

What are the differences between Public Service Announcements, News Stories, and Advertising?

Question by the “eggster”: What are the differences between Public Service Announcements, News Stories, and Advertising?

Best answer:

Answer by spotlite28
PSAs are free public announcements. Like the “The more you know..” spots on NBC. They usually deal with little bits of information like how much energy is saved when you just remember to turn off the computer.
News Stories are (Supposed to be) factual accounts of the events of the day. Information about the mayor’s speech, the findings in an arson investigation, the red cross blood drive. They tell you what happened and why most of the time.
Advertising is paid for. Commercials for Burger King or a furniture store. They’re commercials about products and services that you can buy.
Lots of stations also run promotions about things on their channel: their news, prime time TV programs and the like.
