Packaging design is one of the most important marketing tools for many manufactured packaged goods. Packaging communicates brand and product values at point of sale, and continues to work long after promotional and advertising campaigns have run their course. The design of a pack and the surface graphics are the main features that differentiate a product from its competitors. For brands or products on limited budgets, a modest investment in redesigning the pack can reap substantial dividends in terms of increased sales, improved margins and greater product profitability But there are other reasons why there is a growing interest in packaging design: – manufacturers’ brands today have to fight harder, with less shelf space, against retailers’ own brands – the internationalisation of markets means packaging design must take into account national and cultural boundaries – new materials and technology are a continuous stimulus to innovative packaging in order to boost sales, reduce costs, and increase profits – public concern with the environment and increasing legislation is putting pressure on manufacturers to redesign packaging to minimise waste and use materials, which are biodegradable or easily recyclable.

Oct 15, 2010 ... Article: Lecture with Aygül Özkan. Newsletter Team. Hello my name is… Reminder Members Area. General Information. Planned Events in ... weather all the time but – by golly, do I have a few things to say about our summer!!! But, I will keep my word and shan’t say a word. From what I heard from many people it has been quite a busy summer for most of us. I hope that at least some of you got a bit of a rest and at least had time to enjoy the good weather while it lasted. Now the Autumn holidays are nearly upon us and it is time to review what we have been up to since June this year: News from the Cultural Heritage Circle 3 Tips for Kids Article: Historical Tram Ride. This event was run by an organisation called ‘Writers Ink’ and was held in English. We would like to thank this group for very kindly including us. It was a lovely and interesting reading. Our president, Marianne Wandt and her husband Adalbert invited us to their home for the opening match of the Soccer World Cup in South Africa between Mexico and South Africa. A huge group of 40 people from the IWA-BS followed their invitation and watched the match on their very large TV. Marianne and Adalbert had put up tables and chairs outside and offered us a splendid selection of cakes followed by a BBQ in great style accompanied by drinks and salads. This really was a fantastic afternoon and evening that was enjoyed by everyone who attended. Our sincere thanks to them both for hosting this event and for inviting all of us to share this with them.
As the result of an accident or illness, or because of old age, some people are no longer in a position to take care of important matters themselves. They need someone who can represent their interests and rights in dealings with doctors, for example, or public offices and officials. The basic principles of legal guardianship are explained in this advice brochure, and the duties and rights of the care-taking guardians described in some detail. You see, German guardianship law is complicated. And not all advice centres and facilities are adjusted to persons with a migration background. Migrants often don’t know which options they actually have, the main reason being that they are not familiar with German guardianship law. Then again, it’s difficult for them to understand the often rather complex legal regulations because their German language skills aren’t so good. This brochure is intended to be both a source of advice and a guide. It takes cultural differences into consideration, and tries to help you to understand the complicated system of German guardianship law. After all, as far as matters of your personal wealth and welfare are concerned, nobody can fulfil expectations better than you yourself. Which is why everyone should have the chance to check whether precautionary measures should be taken in good times – for bad times – if, indeed, guardianship is necessary at some point. As well as an illustration of the legal basics, the brochure also contains a detailed description of types of precautionary options, in the shape of advance directives on guardianship, living wills and powers of attorney. Moreover, it contains a list of the regional drop-in centres, like guardianship authorities and associations, which offer advice and support. The brochure is published in several languages so that migrants have access to all the information. Our thanks go to the Institute for Transcultural Support for developing and publishing this brochure, which bears in mind the growing need for legal support of persons with a migration background.
Modern Japan is a sad example of what americanization and it's "Against THE MAN!" (made by THE MAN!) cultural outlook does to ancient cultures.
Cantors World was founded by Cantor Benny Rogosnitzky and Charlie Bernhaut in January, 2003 with the goal of helping to revive interest in traditional chazzonus through quality and creative programs. Their concerts have drawn sold-out crowds with a varied audience, from the most religious or Chassidic background to the unaffiliated and extremely secular. It is this unique aspect of our religion – traditional chazzonus – that attracts Jews from across the religious spectrum to gather together for a mutual, Jewish, spiritual and cultural experience. A key goal of Cantors World is to continue to promote the role of the cantor in bringing inspiration, dignity and beauty to the prayer service.

Addition to the Release of this Report This report on robot anime was prepared based on information available through 2012, and at that time, with the exception of a handful of long-running series (Gundam, Macross, Evangelion, etc.) and some kiddie fare, no original new robot anime shows debuted at all. But as of today that situation has changed, and so I feel the need to add two points to this document. At the start of the anime season in April of 2013, three all-new robot anime series debuted. These were Production I.G.'s “Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet," Sunrise's “Valvrave the Liberator," and Dogakobo and Orange's “Majestic Prince of the Galactic Fleet." Each was broadcast in a late-night timeslot and succeeded in building fanbases. The second new development is the debut of the director Guillermo Del Toro's film “Pacific Rim," which was released in Japan on August 9, 2013. The plot involves humanity using giant robots controlled by human pilots to defend Earth’s cities from gigantic “kaiju.” At the end of the credits, the director dedicates the film to the memory of “monster masters” Ishiro Honda (who oversaw many of the “Godzilla” films) and Ray Harryhausen (who pioneered stop-motion animation techniques.) The film clearly took a great deal of inspiration from Japanese robot anime shows. The separate “Survey and Report on Japanese Tokusatsu,” which was prepared in parallel with this report, explained the deep connection between “monster-versus-hero" (tokusatsu) productions and robot anime shows. Seeing a major Hollywood production give this unexpected show of respect proves that tokusatsu and robot anime culture are far from being a closed book. All of this serves to remind us of the relevance of the themes explored in this report as they continue to develop, not only domestically but in the form of international cultural exchanges.
The research reports on results of an initial application of the Love Attitude Scale (Hendrick & Hendrick, 1986) in Serbia. The study was conducted on the sample of 127 respondents, mainly of adolescent age, from Subotica, Serbia. We explored the factor structure of the Love Attitude Scale, analyzed relationships between its subscales, and examined relevant correlates of its dimensions. We also performed extensive item analysis of the scale, and proposed several new items for the use in the revised Love Attitude Scale for Serbia. Correlates of the revised subscales correspond to those obtained with the original scale and in other countries. The results confirm cross-cultural stability of the six-dimensional structure of the Love Attitude Scale. It was concluded that the Serbian adaptation was successful, and that the translated and slightly revised scale can be used as a valid instrument for the assessment of the six love styles. Keywords: Love styles; factor analysis; romantic behavior; Serbia For many years academic psychologists had not been interested in research on love. However, the last two decades witnessed rising interest in this aspect of human psychology with many developments and research programs. One of the outcomes is a number of operationalizations of different attitudes to love, love styles, or dimensions of love. Some examples are Rubin's (1970) Love Scale, the Love Scale developed by Munro and Adams (1978), the „Erotometer‟ developed by Bardis (1978), and Sternberg‟s Triangular Love Scale (1986, 1987, 1997).
