We want to find the souls and passions of the students on campus and see what drives them and keeps them moving or walking forward. We will be including images of people’s shoes to further our metaphor of the “sole” of the student which is his or her’s backbone driving force. Shoe help you keep moving forward to your dreams and are unique to each person. To break the ice and get at the not as in depth part of the interview I asked Andrew about the shoes he was wearing. I asked him to tell me why he was attending WSU and he responded with,” I am attending classes to major in Business Marketing. I hope to get a degree in four years so then i can go on to work for a professional sports organization” I learned that Andrew was very driven by his education in business and thinks of his career every day. I asked him what makes him to get out of bed every morning and at first he jokingly said his alarm clock but then changed his answer to, “Future career opportunities. He commented that he is interested in this career because of his, “passion for sports and my enjoyment interacting with other people and being in a social environment. Andrew also has other motives and passions in life that keep him moving forward, many of which involve family.
I have done my fair share of traveling this semester so far, but now that one of my two spring breaks have started, the big trips have begun. My friends and I spent this past long weekend (Thursday-Sunday) exploring our new favorite city in the Czech Republic. We had a very early flight Thursday morning (my alarm was set for 4:15am), and a long layover in Barcelona before we landed in Prague. Thursday was a long travel da y but we did get to enjoy some traditional Czech food before calling it an early night. Friday we got our day started navigating the bus system from our hostel (we paid significantly less for staying about a 10 minute bus ride outside of the main part of town) and making our way to Old Town. We took advantage of a free walking tour that took us around the main sights of downtown Prague, including the historical Astrological Clock, Charles Bridge, Jewish Quarter and Rudolfinum Theater. On the other side of the river we made our way to the Lennon Wall, a part of a wall covered in graffiti, messages of peace and lyrics from the Beatles (I’m still not completely sure of the significance or why Prague was commemorating John Lennon,... To finish the day, we climbed to the top of the Astrological Clock for a beautiful view of Old Town,.
In branding, especially in the branding video, marketers are the storytellers and their job is to turn the audience into heroes (Reed College of Media, 2015). Simplifying a brand comes down to three key words which describes the brand position... Commercial 1: “Puppy Love” by Budweiser. “Puppy love” tells the heartwarming story of an adorable Golden Retriever puppy waiting to be adopted along with his brothers and sisters. Day-after-day he manages to escape to be with his new best friend – a Clydesdale horse at a neighboring farm. Over time, the puppy and the Clydesdale build a delightfully strong, unique bond. However, to the audiences dismay the puppy is taken back home after every time he escapes. “The commercial aims straight for the heart of the audience and hits the sweet spot” (Wayshak, 2014). This is a great example of how a brand does not have to showcase its products to emotionally connect.
Kim Kardashian's lost luggage, Kelly Osbourne's black eye and a Game of Thrones actress barred from the business lounge: Why celebrity travel isn't as glamorous as we think
Why can we travel alone but not use the lounge? It makes no sense.' British Airways then explained it was because the business class lounges offer a self-service complimentary bar stocked with alcohol which is not monitored by staff round the clock.

What I will and won't miss about Dubai
Each has a unique vocal style; some being far more melodic than others. One of my Palestinian friends lived right next to a mosque and got woken up every day around 5am – at least he didn’t need an alarm clock. I’ve come to love this soothing all ...
