Hell Pizza condom advertisements: complaints upheld
Aug 04

Wednesday, November 29, 2006

A record number of complaints, over 600, against the New Zealand restaurant chain Hell Pizza for its advertising campaign using condoms delivered via letterbox have been upheld by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). Family First “welcomes heavenly decision from ASA on Hells Pizza.”

Hell Pizza delivered sealed foil condoms in a cardboard box to households nationwide. On the outside of the box were the words: “Our pizza for meat lovers!” and the restaurant logo. The inside of the box included the condom and explicit instructions on how to use it. Hell Pizza delivered 70,000 condoms to households. An additional 100,000 were distributed to health and community groups who the chain said were “very supportive.”

Bob McCoskrie, director of Family First, said: “This is a victory for the protection of families from grubby advertising by companies like Hell’s Pizza, and is also a message to other companies who cross the line of what is decent and acceptable to our community. This is a pizza delivery company taking the moral high ground on sex education and telling parents how to give sex education to their kids, implying that all parents have failed at this, and kids as young as five should be exposed to this type of material.”

S. Nicholas filed a formal complaint and said in the complaint:” Any child can open the box take out these condoms and play with them. These are contraceptive devices, not playthings. The package also gave full instructions ‘how to use the condom’ in case some young person wanted to ‘experiment’! It shows lack of taste and is irresponsible.”

Other complainants said that it is inappropriate to promote food with a condom, the text “meat lovers” was offensive, that it undermined family values, and removed the right for families to teach sex education to their children. Condom use instructions that came with the advertising campaign were unnecessary and unacceptable and that there are health and safety issues if the condom broke during delivery.

The ASA said that three code of ethic rules were broken. They were basic principle 4, advertisements should follow a sense of social responsibility to both the consumers and society; rule 4, advertisements should not contain anything generally offensive and rule 5, advertisements should not contain anything that would cause serious widespread offence.

The agency Cinderella, acting on behalf of Hell Pizza, said that they “most certainly did approach this campaign with a due sense of social responsibility to consumers and society.”

Cinderella said: “From the very beginning, the company’s marketing activities were unconventional and memorable… HELL has built a successful brand by utilizing a limited marketing budget in ways that sought to grab attention and secure significant additional media coverage that would never have been able to be sustained using conventional, paid-for, advertising techniques.”

“LUST and sex are, in our experience, often found not far apart. One generally follows the other. And enjoying great food either before or after is also not such a stretch.”

Replying to the instructions that have to be printed, Cinderella said: “The terms are not really sexually arousing and the suggestion made by one hysterical complainant that they could then go and act out the instructions on the next door child is just not plausible and probably not even physically possible. It borders on insane to believe that this is a credible risk. …there has not been an explosion of sexual assault of children after being exposed to government health warnings.”

The ASA then considered all information given to them by both complainants and the advertiser.

The ASA agreed that the advertisements were in breach of basic principle 4 because: “Unsolicited, unaddressed delivery of a condom to letterboxes to promote a food brand did not meet [the basic principle 4] standard.” The standard “required all advertising to be prepared with a due sense of social responsibility to consumers and society.”

The ASA then reviewed whether or not the advertisement programme had breached rule 4 and rule 5. “The method of distribution was a key factor in considering whether or not the promotion had breached the Rules, taking into account the random context, medium, audience and product. The majority of the Board noted that it was difficult to target specific groups or ages using unaddressed letterbox distribution. In addition, it was concerned that such a method of distribution allowed any member of a household access to the advertising.” The majority of the ASA board did not find the instructions offensive but did agree that it would cause widespread offense. The advertisement programme is in breach of rule 4 and rule 5.

Some of the ASA board said: “…While the promotion had caused offence to some, this was offset by the possibility that the promotion had reached an audience that may not access the safe sex message via other media.”

The ASA decided to uphold the complaints, “complaints were unanimously upheld.”

“Our message to Hell’s Pizza is simple – stay out of the bedroom and get back into the kitchen,” Mr McCoskrie said.

Simple Tips for Furniture Care

When you have bought your handmade solid oak furniture, you should know how to care for it properly. Besides the obvious handle with care when moving your furniture, do not drop it from a great height and so on, here are a few tips that we mention to our clients to help them care for the furniture that we make for them.

Solid wood furniture needs to be waxed with natural beeswax regularly. The traditional thick paste lightly applied with a soft rag (old towelling) is best, or a natural spray on is quite adequate, but silicon spray is not suitable as it does not feed or nourish the wood, but merely puts a slippery shiny surface on the wood.

Timber should be dried as closely as possible to the moisture content of the room that it is going into, minimizing movement in the timber. Cells will expand or shrink across their girth (not length) as they take on or loose moisture until they balance with their surroundings, and reach ambient (this is why doors stick in the winter). The British standard for kiln dried timber is 12%, plus or minus 2% (that s the timber merchants job). If the room is very damp, then the wood will swell, blowing joints apart, while too low and the wood can shrink causing tension in the timber and possibly splitting.

Hot coffee cups, red wine rings, watermarks from vases which mark polished surfaces are often repairable, while cigarettes and sharp edges can often cause irreparable damage. Highly skilled furniture polishers can remove small marks and scratches, wine rings and water marks and it is best to hunt for a local polisher in the yellow pages, than attempt removing the mark yourself, and ending up with a bigger problem. You should ask your furniture maker how durable the surface finish he uses is, or what else he would like to use to increase the durability to make it more suitable for your purpose. Although not as durable, we have noticed a recent trend going back to the natural finishes, such as oils and waxes, rather than the manmade lacquers, which tend to be sprayed on.

Furniture should be kept away from direct sunlight, as it will cause to wood to fade (or even shrink). A table left in direct sunlight with a fruit bowl in the centre for sometime will end up with a darker area under the fruit bowl. If a sideboard is put in front of a window, then it s worth drawing the curtain or blind during the worst part of the day.

Inevitably your furniture will age, taking the odd knock and dent as it becomes an antique, gaining patina from a build up of wax polish mixed with dust, creating darker areas in the corners and lighter areas in the high spots. You should also be aware that over time, light woods darken, and dark timbers lighten, so you natural English oak four poster bed will darken to a Tudor oak colour, and your deep brown, almost black English walnut dining table will gradually turn into a honey colour.

Stephen Edwards has been making furniture for 25 years, and has settled into making four poster beds and oak country furniture. He does this from the English/Welsh border county of Herefordshire, in an area as rural as it gets. For more information and other articles, please visit

President of Guinea-Bissau assassinated
Jul 28

Monday, March 2, 2009

According to officials, João Bernardo Vieira, the president of Guinea-Bissau, was shot to death on Monday in his palace by renegade soldiers.

“President Vieira was killed by the army as he tried to flee his house which was being attacked by a group of soldiers close to the chief of staff Tagme Na Waie, early this morning,” Zamora Induta, a military spokesman, said to Agence France-Presse, insisting that “this was not a coup d’etat.”

“We reaffirmed our intention to respect the democratically elected power and the constitution of the republic,” he said. “The people who killed President Vieira have not been arrested, but we are pursuing them. They are an isolated group. The situation is under control.”

Induta also said that the president was “taken down by bullets fired by these soldiers,” and that afterwards they looted his home. “They were taking everything they could carry, his personal belongings, the furniture, everything,” Induta said.

The assassination is believed to be a revenge for a bomb blast that killed one of Vieira’s rivals, the army chief of staff General Batista Tagme Na Waie, just a few hours earlier.

The constitution says that the nation’s parliament chief, Raimundo Pereira, is to succeed Vieira in the case of his death.

Jean Ping, the chief executive of the African Union, said that the assassination of the president was a “criminal act”.

Guinea-Bissau, located on the western coast of Africa, has had a history of coups, and is one of the world’s poorest countries. It is notorious as being a transit point for the cocaine trade between Europe and South America.

João Bernardo Vieira, born in 1939, came to power in Guinea-Bissau during a coup in 1980, but was forced out in 1999 when a civil war started. In 2005, he returned from his exile in Portugal to participate in the nation’s elections, and won the vote.

Fahrradwelt

Das Fahrradwelt-Spiel ist ein 3D PC-Spiel, mit dem Kinder im Alter von 8 bis 12 Jahren ihre Radfahrkenntnisse prfen knnen. Das RMS-Projekt wird am Fachgebiet Technische Informatik der Universitt Kassel entwickelt. Ziel des Projektes ist eine bessere Verkehrserziehung zu ermglichen.

Im Spiel wird dem Schler ein virtuelles Fahrrad zur Verfgung gestellt, mit dem er durch die Szenen fahren kann. Er kann rechts und links Handzeichen geben sowie nach rechts, links oder hinten schauen. Der Spieler beginnt mit der bungen danach die Hauptszene mit Fragen spielt.

Weitere infos unter http://rms-fahrradwelt.de

Beim Spielen einer Szene werden alle Ereignisse in einer Datenbank gespeichert. Mit der Ereignisanzeige kann der Lehrer alle Spielsitzungen seiner Schler anschauen. Die Ereignisse zeigen die Bewegung des Spielers in der Szene sowie seine Blickrichtung. Der Lehrer hat auch die Mglichkeit, seine Bewertung fr jede Sitzung abzugeben.

Die Ereignisanzeige zeigt dem Lehrer die Bewegung des Spielers whrend der Sitzung. Dadurch wei der Lehrer, auf welcher Strae der Spieler gefahren ist, welchen Weg er gewhlt hat bis zum Ziel und ob er die Strae verlassen hat. Desweiteren werden die Bewegungen der Autos und der anderen Verkehrsmitteln aufgezeigt, sodass der Lehrer ein komplettes Bild ber die Situation erhlt. Somit ist es mglich, sich zu jeder Zeit einen berblick ber alle Verkehrsmittel zu verschaffen.

Ein Ereignis ist eine Handlung des Schler, die positiven oder negativen Einfluss auf das Spiel hat ( ein Handzeichen, ein Unfall, und ein erreichtes Ziel). Angezeigt werden die Position, die Zeit, und die Beschreibung des Ereignisses.

Im Spiel wird dem Schler ein virtuelles Fahrrad zur Verfgung gestellt, mit dem er durch die Szene fahren kann. Er kann rechts und links Handzeichen geben sowie nach rechts, links oder hinten schauen. Der Spieler hat die Wahl, eine der bungen bzw. eine freigegebene Szene von seinem Lehrer zu spielen.

Durch die bungen kann der Spieler die Grundkenntnisse des Fahrradwelt-Spiels lernen. Am Anfang jeder bung, erscheint eine kurze Anleitung, welche die bung erklrt. Der Richtungspfeil zeigt dem Spieler, wo sein nchstes Ziel liegt. Fehler vom Spieler werden angezeigt.

Der Lehrer kann seine erstellte Szene fr seine Schler freigeben. Die Freigabe erfolgt durch Szene ID und einen Schlssel. Sobald diese beide Nummern eingegeben werden, wird die Szene aus dem Internet heruntergeladen und ist sofort spielbar.

Der RMS-Editor ermglicht es individuelle Szenen und Verkehrssituationen fr das Spiel selbst zu erstellen. Der Lehrer kann diese durch wenige Schritte mit Straen, Verkehrszeichen, Gebuden und Verkehrsregeln aufbauen.

Schritt 1: Straen zeichnen

Im ersten Schritt zeichnet der Lehrer alle Straen, die er in seiner Szene integrieren mchte. Es stehen 8 Straentypen und eine Straenbahnlinie zur Verfgung, welche horizontal bzw. vertikal eingesetzt werden knnen. Kreuzungen werden automatisch erkannt und erstellt.

Schritt 2: Verkehrszeichen hinzufgen

In diesem Schritt kann der Lehrer verschiedene Verkehrszeichen bzw. Straenmarkierungen hinzufgen. Es ist zum Beispiel mglich, Zebrastreifen und Zone-30-Markierungen hinzuzufgen. Vorfahrt- und Vorfahrtgewhren-Zeichen sind Beispiele der Verkehrszeichen, die der Lehrer hinzufgen kann.

Schritt 3: Wege bearbeiten

Die Fahrtrichtung des Verkehrs kann in diesem Schritt verndert werden. Jeder Weg hat eine Hchstgeschwindigkeit, eine Fahrtrichtung und eine Liste der erlaubten Verkehrsmittel auf diesen Weg.

Schritt 4: Umgebung und Ziele

Wenn die Straen fertiggestellt sind, knnen Gebude und Bume hinzugefgt werden, um eine naturgetreue Umgebung fr das Spiel darzustellen. Der Lehrer kann auch die Start- und Ziel-Positionen fr den Spieler auswhlen. Dem Lehrer ist es ebenfalls mglich, weitere Ziele zwischen Start- und Zielpunkt auszuwhlen.

Schritt 5: Kreuzungen bearbeiten

An jeder Kreuzung in der Szene kann der Lehrer die Wege der Kreuzung bearbeiten. Er kann zum Beispiel die Vorfahrt ndern, Wege lschen und neue Wege erstellen. Fr die Wege mit gleicher Vorfahrt gilt die Regel rechts vors links.

Schritt 6: Ampeln bearbeiten

Am Eingang jeder Kreuzung kann der Lehrer Ampeln fr den Kraftwagenverkehr und auch fr Fugnger einrichten. Mit Hilfe des Editors ist es mglich, die Zeitachsen der Ampeln zu vergleichen. Dies erleichtert die Entscheidung, welche Ampeln gleichzeitig grn anzeigen drfen.

Schritt 7: Simulation

Der Lehrer kann ber diese Funktion den Simulator starten, und seine selbst erstellte Szene berprfen und danach fr die Schler freigeben. Die Anzahl von Autos, Fahrrdern, Straenbahnen und Fugngern wird vom Lehrer whrend der Simulation festgelegt. Whrend der Simulation kann die Anzahl der Verkehrsmitteln bzw. der Fugnger verndert werden. Der Simulator steuert die Ampeln und kontrolliert damit den Verkehr.

Volvo announces all new car models electric or hybrid from 2019
Jul 16

Friday, July 7, 2017

On Wednesday, automobile company Volvo announced all of its cars to be released in 2019 onwards are to use some form of battery-powered engine, leaving conventional petrol-only vehicles altogether. The decision comes after Volvo announced in May their intent to cease production of diesel vehicles.

The chief executive of Volvo Cars, Håkan Samuelsson, said, “People increasingly demand electrified cars”. Volvo aims to release five new electric vehicle models between 2019 and 2021. While little has yet been revealed about them, the company has stated two of them are to be high-performance electric vehicles, branded as Polestars.

Other car models from 2019 may be plug-in hybrid or 48-volt “mild hybrid” systems. Audi and Mercedes-Benz are also releasing mild hybrid cars for the European market.

“This announcement marks the end of the solely combustion engine-powered car. Volvo Cars has stated that it plans to have sold a total of 1m electrified cars by 2025. When we said it we meant it. This is how we are going to do it,” Samuelsson said. Volvo is owned by Chinese automotive giant Geely, and China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has said by 2025 they want new vehicle sales to be 20 percent “new energy vehicles”.

Employees of Mumbai’s bus service BEST announce indefinite strike
Jul 16

Friday, April 21, 2006

At least 45,000 employees of the BEST, Mumbai‘s public transport provider, are going on strike indefinitely. Workers are unhappy with changes made to wages and are concerned about their working conditions. Union leaders say the strike will end when the company rethinks its decision.

Nearly 3,300 buses will be taken off the road since talks with union leaders have drawn an inconclusive response; at least 450,000 commuters are expected to be affected by the strike. Another round of talks is expected to take place later today. An Industrial Court has termed the strike call illegal. BEST has warned employees participating in the strike that they would be faced with disciplinary action.

Sharad Rao, General Secretary of BEST’s workers union, said that “the management took this decision arbitrarily without even coming to the negotiating table. They moved to the committee to change the wages and other conditions on their own, and that is absolutely illegal. Three days ago, they have again moved to the BHT committee asking them to freeze the dearness allowance which no worker is going to tolerate”. Dearness Allowance is an inflation-linked component of wages.

“I have been on the road for the last one hour. Normally I would have just hopped on to a bus,” said commuter Mukul Chandan. Commuter Janki Patel reported, “I travel by bus everyday, but today because of the strike I have had to take an auto and its going to cost me Rs 200 just one way.”
