Consuming Kids throws desperately needed light on the practices of a relentless multi-billion dollar marketing machine that now sells kids and their parents everything from junk food and violent video games to bogus educational products and the family car. Drawing on the insights of health care professionals, children's advocates, and industry insiders, the film focuses on the explosive growth of child marketing in the wake of deregulation, showing how youth marketers have used the latest advances in psychology, anthropology, and neuroscience to transform American children into one of the most powerful and profitable consumer demographics in the world.

Excellent reminder.."buying and selling, we waste our precious lives." At the time of the Protestant Reformation, we began our break from religious authority which sought to control us through a monopoly on our spiritual proclivities, now it's time to throw off the yoke of the marketeers who took the place of the religious authorities and manipulate our material proclivities. This manipulation is putting our very future of life on our planet in jeopardy. As Chris Jordan relates on Ted.com, "our unconscious behaviors are adding up to catastrophic consequences." http://www.ted.com/talks/chris_jordan_pictures_some_shocking_stats....

We're all been manipulated by the market place. If we wish to help our kids, we must begin deprogramming ourselves.

This is an amazing doco... well worth watching. Maybe the understanding the use of these psychological patterns can be transformed to more positive ends.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.

Charleston has an exhibit opening up with pieces of old african art and sculptures. Every piece of art, quilts and dolls, is beautiful and engaging in their own way… Many of them address the mermaids that followed the slave ships to return the souls…
