But what does the future hold for advertising? As the world of corporations and advertising charts its future, the search for new advertising venues goes on. Advertising has been very innovative in the past in finding ways to communicate promotional messages. As technology has evolved, it has revolutionized advertising techniques as well as changing the social landscape. There is no reason to suspect that advertising will not continue to reinvent itself, discover new media, and develop new techniques. Advertising as we know it may be at its end, but the culture of consumption is alive and well. contact MAMi Media at 856-637-2560 for more information on how we can help you deal with the fast paced advertising world.

2011 a s t o n m a r t i n r a p i d e


The 2011 aston martin rapide is a four-door sedan, which will be produced for Aston Martin by the Austrian Magna Steyr, since the company ’s own capacity is occupied by sports bodies. 2011 Aston Martin rapide family car Serial Rapide has undergone ver y mild changes compared to the prototype shown two years ago. The front is typical of Aston Martin, but the line of headlamps is highlighted by modern LEDs, which ser ve as day time running lights. Rea r car again in the style of the brand by muscular wheel arches highlight the potential of sport and luxur y sedan. 2011 aston martin rapide has full glass roof, merges with front and rear glass. Car doors are frameless, giving the four-sedan broadcasting as a sports coupe. Inside the interior there are four individual seats. More details a bout the 2011 aston martin rapide will be announced at its premiere in Geneva. However, it became clear that Kuwaiti investment fund Dar, which bought 50% of Aston Martin in 2007, is considering the possibility of selling part of its stake.

THE GIRL EFFECT

THE WORLD’S GREATEST UNTAPPED SOLUTION

LEARN MORE WHY GIRLS? u

THE GIRL EFFECT, n. --- The unique potential of 600 million adolescent girls to end poverty for themselves and the world. Adolescent girls are uniquely capable of raising the standard of living in the developing world.

Today, the world is starting to see that the cost of excluding a girl doesn’t just impact her. It impacts everyone.

It’s been shown: she will reinvest her income and knowledge back into her family and her community. As an educated mother, an active citizen, an ambitious entrepreneur or prepared employee, a girl will break the cycle of intergenerational poverty.

The ranks of girl champions around the world are growing, including the Nike Foundation, the NoVo Foundation, the United Nations Foundation, the Coalition for Adolescent Girls, the International Center for Research on Women, the Population Council, CARE, the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood, the Center for Global Development, Plan International, and the Global Business Coalition, among others.

That is the girl effect. Yet, despite her proven potential, she is more likely to be uneducated, a child bride, and exposed to HIV/AIDS. Less than two cents of every international development dollar is directed to her.

THE REVOLUTION WILL BE LED BY A 12-YEAROLD GIRL u FIVE GIRLS, MANY LIVES u WHAT GIRLS NEED u THE GIRL EFFECT DATA u

Progress has been made and solutions identified, yet more must be done. The 600 million adolescent girls in developing countries are ready to change the world.

GIRL EFFECT: MEDIA

WHY GIRLS?

Brent Stirton/Getty Images

INVESTING IN GIRLS HAS THE HIGHEST UNTAPPED RETURN IN DEVELOPMENT. IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT. She’s the economic backbone of her family: the chore doer, the caretaker, the insurance policy. She’ll be the mother oft the next generation. She will reinvest 90 percent of her income into her family, generating a powerful ripple effect. Her brother? Thirty to forty percent. When she’s educated through secondary school, she’ll bring 25% more income into her family. When she’s healthy, her community’s health will improve as

maternal mortality and child malnutrition drop, and HIV rates decline. She will drive 70% of agricultural production. She is an unrealized economic force, accelerating growth and progress in every sector. Exclude her and the world misses out on an enormous opportunity. Kenya would gain $27 billion in potential income per generation if its female secondaryschool dropouts continued their

education. Brazil foregoes an average of $17.3 billion per year as a result of girls’ joblessness. India sacrifices a potential of $100 billion over a lifetime due to adolescent pregnancy. There are 600 million adolescent girls in the developing world. Invest in their lives, and many more lives benefit.
