The Promise of America is Liberty

George Zimmerman is NOT GUILTY!

This verdict in no way means Trayvon's death isn't a tragedy. Indeed it is. But the State of Florida versus George Zimmerman wasn't about the tragic death of a teenager, it was about whether free men can 'stand their ground' and defend themselves if they are in imminent danger of losing their lives.

This verdict reinforces free men can!

The promise of America is the promise of liberty. The promise of liberty requires that free men be able to stand their ground and defend themselves.

Against criminals, and government.

The right to bear arms is the constitutional guarantee so men can stand their ground, use their arms, and live free.

Zimmerman is free.

Liberty is intact.

The curious oddity is that the criminal background of George Zimmerman was conveniently ignored. I do not dispute the right of an individual to defend himself as it is clearly impossible for the police force to prevent crimes at all places and at all times- they are earthlings and not men from the planet Krypton.
the abforementioned link shows that the background of zimmerman was ignored- seems too surprising that these facts were overlooked. one would have anticipated a more fair trial
later zimmerman was seen supposedly rescuing some people from an overturned vehicle
makes one wonder how though- the same man had been pinned by one man days before

the right to defence is a fair right and needs to be enforced but such miscarriages of justice need to be avoided
america had been a land of promise but now it seems to be one of promises- just the way brittania ruled the waves and then later started waving the rules

Situational Involvement of Consumers

There are two types of involvement that consumers have with products and services, Situational and Enduring. Situational involvement as the term suggests, occurs only in specificsituations whereas Enduring involvement is continuous and is more permanent in nature.

Decisions to buy umbrellas in India are driven by the onset of Indian monsoon. Monsoon rains arrived in India over the South Andaman Sea on May 10 and over the Kerala coast on May 28, three days ahead of schedule. But then, after a few days of rain, South India is witnessing a spate of dry weather. Temperatures are soaring in the north of India. The Umbrella companies in the state of Kerala are wishing for the skies to open up. So is the farming community and manufacturers of rural consumer products whose product sales depend totally on the farming community. The Met. department has deemed this dry spell as 'not unusual'.

India's monsoon rains have been static over the southern coast since last Tuesday because of a…

Prior Hypothesis Bias

Prior Hypothesis bias refers to the fact that decision makers who have strong prior beliefs about the relationship between two variables tend to make decisions on the basis of those beliefs, even when presented with the evidence that their beliefs are wrong. Moreover, they tend to use and seek information that is consistent with their prior beliefs, while ignoring information that contradicts these beliefs.

From a strategic perspective, a CEO who has a strong prior belief that a certain strategy makes sense might continue to pursue that strategy, despite evidence that it is inappropriate or failing.

Wearing Cuba means Walking Cuba

There's something ethereal about wearing 'Cuba'. Suddenly its the streets of Havana, smoke filled and lit by the groovin', more than the lights. The bars are packed to hilt and dreamy women seem to glide by. The feeling's beyond magical.

How did I get there?

Before I explain, I gotta tell you about the power of brands to take you places. Brands bring with them an ability to prompt you to conjure up the unreal. They can transform your reality into fantasy. And consumers are more than willing partners to brands as the drudgery they face in everyday life begs an injection of fantasy. Brands that operate in a zone of the unreal do the conjuring act as there's nothing else that consumers can call for, while making judgements. For instance, what should I be judging the lip paint on? Its colour and tone or its ability to turn me into a diva?

Cuba's a perfume. The moment I wear it, I am traipsing the streets of Havana. Its smoke filled bars I see. Its music I hear and…
