The pressure to be thin has never been greater. Unfortunately our daily food choices have made this goal practically impossible!
The average American, adult and child alike, are bombarded with corn-fed beef, high fructose corn syrup, refined sugars and starches and dangerous transfats. Even that ubiquitous jar of peanut butter is guilty, harboring a hefty dose of hydrogenated fats.
The trouble with these foods is they sabotage even the most dedicated dieter because they encourage the storage of body fat by being pro-inflammatory. Maintaining a healthy weight is not about your daily intake of fat - and it is not about cutting out the carbs. It is about something most people have no conception of - the connection between inflammation and body fat (and the fact that one is never present without the other).
The U.S. mobile advertising sector is likely to continue to grow as adoption of mobile handsets, particularly smartphones, rises according to "Going Mobile: The Mobile Local Media Opportunity," a report released by The Kelsey Group's new mobile local media practice, which includes forecasts for local mobile advertising through 2013.
Advertising revenues for U.S. mobile are expected to grow from $160 million in 2008 to $3.1 billion in 2013, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 81.2 percent. The ad spend for the mobile category is divided in three categories. In 2008 the split was $21 million on display advertising, $39 million on search, and $100 million on SMS. By 2013 a shift will occur with a bulk of the spending dedicated to search. The report projects $567 million will be spent on mobile display ads, $2.3 billion on search, and $270 million in SMS.
Expect significant growth in this sector, eMarketer says - Published July 2, 2009 on AdWeek
NEW YORK.- The U.S. Hispanic Internet population is young, vibrant and growing -- in numbers, broadband connections and time spent online.
In 2009, there are nearly 23 million Hispanics online, about 51 percent of the U.S. Hispanic population, according to eMarketer estimates. Hispanics make up about 12.3 percent of the U.S. Internet population in 2009, and will increase to 13.9 percent in 2013.
Like its offline counterpart, this group of Internet users is young -- 63 percent are under age 35 -- and mobile. Some 81 percent of Hispanics own a mobile phone, according to the Pew Internet & American Life Project, and for 25 percent of these adults, their mobile device is their primary phone. Hispanics use more phone features, including Internet access, at higher rates than other mobile subscribers.
