Evolution of the PSA

A New York Times article today about TV shows that are receiving funding from Gates Foundation to develop television programming through Viacom to influence the publics view on education and healthcare. While this has been going on for a long time the interesting part is that we are now talking about advocacy placement just like product placement. Get a TV show character to not only talk about the war on H.I.V. or donate a kidney but to have it affect the main story line intrinsically.

The efforts of philanthropies to influence entertainment programming is not new, although viewers are probably less aware of it then obvious marketing tie-ins in which, for example, a can of Coca-Cola shows up in a character’s hands. The Kaiser Family Foundation, which focuses on health issues, has been doing such work for a dozen years. It has worked story lines about H.I.V. and AIDS into programs on CBS and UPN (now known as the CWnetwork), including the reality show “America’s Next Top Model.”

Alpha Percival is a common humanoid new Vestroia bakugan who uses his cape for invisibility and shoots plasma bullets from his head and his gauntlets. I like it because of its hair extensionsdesign. Its not a very complex bakugan. They come in great colors like black and red. We have a black and purple one with 720G. It is in great shape, opens and closes very tight. prom dressesIt has a working jaw similar to Abis Omega's, and a short tail. Its main attribute is Darkus, owned by Ace. wedding invitationIt is easy to close and opens, but it does not have a good chance of winning in battle if it has less than 600Gs. We got ours for free from a friend, but on eBay,prom hairstyles a good price would be around $2.50 with no cards included. In stores, it sells for about $6.50 with 2 cards.

Alpha Percival is the evolved version of Midnight Percival when he showed up in episode 27, hair extensionsdue to the attribute energy of the "six legendary soldiers of Vestroia". This made him even more powerful and later took on Mira and Gus. Percival won (not a surprise) and was able to help out Dan. Percival used totally new abilities. He is a powerful fighter, and is very fast.human hair extensions Plus, it has many good abilities. It is often confused as a 3-headed dragon, cheap hair extensionsbut the two secondary "dragon heads" are actually gauntlet designs; what look like his wings are in fact his cape.
