    1. "The First Amendment and Supreme Court decisions protect the news media in their reporting on matters of public interest, so you really have to show actual malice and disregard for the truth that would be very blatant and very provable," said Gene Policinski, senior vice president of the First Amendment Center.

    1. Increase in alcohol-industry funded research is a cause for concern, study suggests
      • Since 2009, alcohol companies have been funding increasingly more research - evidenced by almost 13,500 studies funded by the alcohol industry.
      • There are many legitimate fields for research, however there’s a group of these studies that claim health benefits of alcohol, or that substance abuse is a choice.
      • Another problem is that the alcohol industry funds this research through affiliate organisations, and the funding source is often not shown in those papers.
      • Researchers believe that the alcohol industry is too deeply involved, and certain studies should be conducted by independent academics.
    1. Almost every major technological advance of the last two hundred years has taken place with the aid of large amounts of public money and under a good deal of government influence. The technologies of the computer and the Net were invented with the aid of massive state subsidies.

    1. a) Spend ahead of your market shareWe should avoid the temptation to rush into developing work until we know what the budget levels are. If businesses are not investing ahead of market share then the chances of growth are significantly diminished, putting an unfair burden on creativity to make up the shortfall.Equally, we should avoid signing up to Performance By Results contracts without knowing what the investment behind our work will be. As Peter Field has reminded us, brand targets cannot be divorced from the communications budget: “A target that is realistic with one budget level can become unrealistic when this is lowered.”b) Treat creativity as essential, not a nice-to-haveCreativity isn’t an indulgence. Aside from optimal investment levels, it’s the biggest lever of growth available to a business. c) Seek fameContent that gets talked about, shared, played with is demonstrably more powerful than content that simply gets viewed. Though people still need to know about it for those effects to take place.
