50 minutes ago

Will we ever really know how many people gained insurance because of the Affordable Care Act? A NEJM study published this week reveals that 10.3 million Americans are newly insured because of the Affordable Care Act. The report made a splash across in the news. (See Politico, Modern Healthcare, Boston Business Journal to get an idea.) According to the study: 10.3 million previously uninsured adults gained coverage during the Affordable Care Act's first open enrollment period The uninsured rate for working-age adults fell from 21 percent in September 2013 to 16.3 percent in April 2014 The biggest gains in coverage were for Latinos, blacks and adults ages 18-34 But how accurate are these numbers? Other organizations have crunched the numbers and come to different conclusions. A Commonwealth Fund survey, for example, found that 9.5 million more adults have insurance now than at the beginning of open enrollment, while the Urban Institute found 8 million more became insured. The NEJM stu...

Oh Dear, PR and Marketing 'Converging'

1 hour ago

Summary: We haven't had time yet to read Weber Shandwick's new report on what it sees as the convergence of public relations and marketing, but we intend to. The idea of PR becoming equated with marketing, if that's what "convergence" would yield, likely sends shivers through practitioners who understand the complexities of effective communication, not simply selling.

The NFL Shows How Much It Cares About Domestic Violence

With all the hubbub about civil unrest in the Middle East, Ukranian dissent and Comic-Con, you may have missed the slap heard ’round the world. No, not the one that Baltimore Ravens’ running back Ray Rice landed on his (for now) wife that knocked her out so cold that he dragged her unconscious body out of an elevator. We mean one the NFL delivered in response to that cowardly act by Rice: Suspended for two whole games. For those not in the know, if you smoke a joint and get caught in the NFL, you’ll be suspended for four games. See the problem now? (more…) New Career Opportunities Daily: The best jobs in media.

Will the YouTube/Michelle Phan Lawsuit Change the Influencer Game?

2 hours ago

In case you missed it: Michelle Phan, the “make-up demonstrator and entrepreneur” who became a prime influencer by posting short YouTube videos with titles like “Beach Beauty Essentials” and “How to Take the Perfect Selfie”–and earning nearly seven million followers in the process–got sued last week. The suit, which could be worth several million dollars, stemmed from the fact that Phan allegedly used music by Ultra Records artist Kaskade in her clips without permission. Phan is at the forefront of the social media influencer movement, earning more than $5 million in 2012 thanks to brand deals and appearing in ads for YouTube itself. The suit filed against her marks something of a first and raises some big questions about the future of one of the hottest trends in marketing. Will it change the way the influencer game works? Eric Dahan, the CEO of Instabrand.com, who spoke to us about using influencers to market to Millennials last month, has some thoughts after the jump. (more…) Ne...

Plagiarism

5 hours ago

One wonders why anyone would feel it necessary to copy another's work verbatim and claim it as his own.  But that is what this fellow did, and it could cost him his Senate race.  He is claiming Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome as the reason for doing it.  That seems to be a stretch. Other classmates at the US Army War College had been in battle as he was.  Granted that he has a history of depression and is still taking medication for it, but how does that contribute to copying without attribution?  Senator Walsh has created a PR problem for his campaign and reputation.  It will be interesting to see how he handles it.  It would be best if he comes clean, confesses to plagiarism and takes the consequences early on.  The more he tries to quash questions, the worse it will get for him, especially since the War College is investigating his 14-page paper and thesis.  He should be convicted of laziness.  It takes little time to footnote and only a little more time to write in one's own word...
