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.
