This unit is designed as a resource for counselors and teachers collaborating on classroom guidance. It is structured as a series of workshops integrated into core and elective courses, and aims to improve emotional behaviors and attitudes of the students. Supporting what guidance counselors refer to as the self-actualization process, the guidances address several identity issues confronting the culturally diverse population of African American students attending University City High School. The first identity issue is cultural misrecognition among the students. The term “African American,” used to describe ninety percent of the students in official school demographics, is misleading, for it underrepresents the cultural diversity of a student body that includes many second and third generation immigrants and refugees from African, Caribbean and Asian countries. A second identity issue relates to the transformation of the neighborhood known among older residents as “the Bottom,” and more recently as “Black Bottom.” Over the past century, this community has been encompassed and subsumed into the expanding corporate world of the Universities of Pennsylvania and Drexel. Community members who have been displaced continue to celebrate the Bottom through an annual reunion at Fairmount Park. Community members who remain in the dwindling patches of what was the Bottom find themselves living inside of a foreign corporate entity now known as University City. In this context, the impending closing of UCHS in 2009 amplifies the sense of displacement.

Business Situation and Campaign Objectives Background and Business Objectives Within the African-American consumer market (AACM), the midsize passenger car segment is a fierce battleground. This category includes the best-selling Toyota Camry as well as two wellknown rivals – Nissan Altima and Honda Accord. The launch of the redesigned 2007 Camry was seen as an opportunity to steal share from the competition but the buyers Toyota hoped to steal did not see a reason to test drive the new Camry. Before even seeing it, African American buyers who were interested in Altima and Accord had stereotyped Camry as a “boring car for boring people”. The challenge was to convey that the new Camry was the opposite of “boring”; to position Camry as just as surprising and unexpected as the buyers themselves. Marketing Strategy The marketing objectives were to: Generate awareness for the Camry’s styling and technological advancements. Change perceptions of Camry among African-Americans intending to buy competitive brands (“conquest intenders”) by delivering a surprising experience that would cause the target to reconsider Camry (Increase consideration). Budget The total budget for the assignment (“If Looks Could Kill” campaign) was approximately $2-5 million, spread out over media, production and promotion/PR.
The Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Alejandro Mayorkas announced an “Entrepreneurs in Residence” (EIR) initiative to promote business needs and job creation. The Obama Administration has been very positive encouraging immigrant entrepreneurs. This program is designed to encourage entrepreneurship and international investment in American start-ups. The U.S. government’s commitment has been shown at the highest levels, to fit foreign entrepreneurship into the existing immigration framework. While the initiative does not create new visa categories, entrepreneurs that bring capital to the U.S. to start new job-creating businesses are seen a more positive light. The following is a brief discussion of current nonimmigrant (temporary work visa) and immigrant (green card) visa options for South African entrepreneurs.

This report attempts to assess al-Qaeda’s presence in Libya. Al-Qaeda Senior Leadership (AQSL) and al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) have sought to take advantage of the Libyan Revolution to recruit militants and to reinforce their operational capabilities in an attempt to create a safe haven and possibly to extend their area of operations to Libya. Reports have indicated that AQSL is seeking to create an al-Qaeda clandestine network in Libya that could be activated in the future to destabilize the government and/or to offer logistical support to alQaeda’s activities in North Africa and the Sahel. AQIM has reportedly formed sleeper cells that are probably connected to an al-Qaeda underground network in Libya, likely as a way, primarily, to secure the supply of arms for its ongoing jihadist operations in Algeria and the Sahel. This report discusses how al-Qaeda and its North African affiliate are using communications media and face-to-face contacts to shift the still-evolving post-revolutionary political and social dynamic in Libya in a direction that is conducive to jihad and hateful of the West. The information in this report is drawn largely from the Internet and Western and Libyan online publications. Particular attention has been given to AQSL and AQIM sources, especially propaganda videos featuring their leaders and a written essay from ‘Atiyah al-Libi, an influential...
