The Advertising Council, in partnership with the National Crime Prevention Council, U.S. Department of Justice, and Crime Prevention Coalition of America, joined today to announce the launch of a new public service advertising PSA campaign designed to educate tweens and teens about how they can play a role in ending cyberbullying.
We are delighted to be joining the National Crime Prevention Council to launch this new campaign to help teenagers combat cyberbullying, said Peggy Conlon, president and CEO of The Advertising Council. This is a serious issue in our communities and we believe these PSAs will inspire young Americans to stop cyberbullying.
Bullying is a widespread problem for our nations youth, and with the rapid rise in electronic communications, cyberbullying using the Internet or mobile devices to send or post harmful or cruel text or images has become a serious issue. According to the National Crime Prevention Council, 43 percent of teens 13 to 17 years old say they have experienced cyberbullying in the past year. Furthermore, studies show that teen girls are the biggest perpetrators. The study also found that nine in ten teens who had experienced cyberbullying 92 percent reported that they knew the person who was bullying them. Additionally, teens are twice as likely to talk to a friend about the incident rather than their parents or another adult.
Created by volunteer ad agency Saatchi & Saatchi, the multimedia campaign includes viral videos directed by Joe Pytka as well as radio and web advertising. A few of the radio and online banner PSAs feature an appearance by McGruff the Crime Dog an icon tweens welcome as a reassuring presence in the advertising telling them to delete damaging emails or text messages and not to forward them.
Our work is based upon a simple insight If you wouldnt do it in person, why do it online? said Matthew Atkatz, Executive Creative Director, Interactive & Media Convergence at Saatchi & Saatchi. He added We chose to focus on the web rather than TV to speak with tweens and teens in the medium where cyberbullying takes place we hope kids will watch these hard-hitting vignettes and share them to spread the message.
The PSAs direct audiences to the website www.ncpc**** to learn more about cyberbullying. The website also includes a special downloadable document for parents.
NCPC has been a leader in bullying prevention education since the late 1990s, so it is fitting that we expand our efforts to address cyberbullying, said NCPC president and CEO Alfonso Lenhardt. Online bullying can have the same debilitating effects on a young person as face to face bullying depression, a drop in grades, loss of self esteem, suicide, and other violent acts. We simply must do something to stop this devastating problem.
Per the Ad Councils model, the ads will air in time that is donated by the media. PSA messages from the McGruff Take A Bite Out Of Crime public service advertising campaign have been the beneficiary of more than $1 billion in donated media advertising since the campaigns inception.

The Most Iconic Eyewear Brand in the World Celebrates in New York's Times Square.
Ray-Ban, the world's best selling eyewear brand, is launching "Never Hide," their new strategic platform and advertising campaign aimed at building on the brand's 70 years of history.
The effort kicked off on the night of March 7 in New York with a celebrity party attended by Spike Lee, Petra Nemcova, and others. Spike Lee is a global talent who expresses the values of U.S. independent cinema -- values which are shared by Ray-Ban. Ray-Ban is also one of the sustaining partners of the Sundance Film Festival.
On March 8, there was an interactive experience where consumers worldwide submitted their pictures to be posted in the campaign template on 12 screens in Times Square. The ceremony attracted thousands of onlookers.
The courage to express your true self - your thoughts and your personality genuinely - and staying faithful to the values of authenticity and uniqueness have, in fact, made up the DNA of the Ray-Ban brand from its beginning in 1937 to today. The "Never Hide" campaign encourages Ray-Ban wearers to act like their maverick selves -- 'Never pretend. Never be afraid. Never give up. Never hide.' From Audrey Hepburn to James Dean; and JFK to Tom Cruise in Top Gun, Ray-Ban remains one of the most iconic brands in the world.

Survey finds women more likely to share excitement over bargain finds than extravagant purchases!
In shopping and fashion, there is the thrill of the hunt, and then comes the pure, unmatchable exhilaration of the "find." The bargain find that is! There is nothing better than uncovering an amazing piece of designer fashion at an incredible price. A recent survey by Caravan Opinion Research found that 15 % of women who responded loved nothing more than to share that exhilaration with everyone around them, while only 2% are inclined to talk about their extravagant, high end purchases. Inspired by a woman's need to divulge her amazing find, national off-price retailer, T.J. Maxx has launched a new marketing campaign, and a new phrase into pop culture-the Maxx Moment.
WASHINGTON, April 19, 2007 – After three months in preview mode, Revolution Health today formally launched RevolutionHealth****, a comprehensive health and medical information site, specially designed with the family’s Chief Health Officer – busy moms and other caregivers – in mind. Revolution Health also announced the acquisition of TLContact, Inc., the company that provides CarePages, the leading Internet service for building online communities that support communication among family and friends when someone is receiving care.
“While Revolution Health will be a journey over many years to come, we are excited today to launch a site that is the cornerstone of our efforts to revolutionize health care,” said Steve Case, co-founder of AOL and chairman and CEO of Revolution Health. “There is a lot of great health information and tools on the Internet, but nobody has assembled them in a way that is compelling and useful for consumers who want to take more control of their family’s health. We’ve scoured the landscape to find the very best health tools and content, and we’ve put them together all in one place – and made them all free. We will continue to work to build – in partnership with dozens of organizations and millions of people – the Internet’s leading health site.”
