The age of persuasion : how marketing ate our culture by Terry Edward O'Reilly( Book )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Consider the culture of the twenty-first century: Each morning, you hear a half-dozen ads on the radio before your feet touch the floor. By the end of the day, hundreds, perhaps thousands, of marketing messages have targeted you. And yet little is understood about how marketing affects our lives and society. Enter the two authors of this book, the ad men behind The Age of Persuasion, the popular radio show broadcast on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and Sirius Radio. They have made it their mission to share the back-room story of modern marketing, entertaining asides and all: "Think of advertisers as millions of ants in a colony, each working hard and each with its own objective. Except that in this colony, every single ant is competing against the others. That is the ad business. Almost every ad you see, hear, and otherwise experience is competing for a piece of your imagination. And like any cross-section of humanity, the vast, worldwide advertising community is diverse: composed of geniuses and idiots, saints and buffoons, and everything in between." From the early players to the Mad Men of the 1960s and beyond, this book provides an entertaining and eye-opening look at a world driven by marketing
O'Reilly on advertising by Terry Edward O'Reilly( Recording )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Features the world's greatest ads from Australia, Britain, Canada and the U.S. and tells the stories behind them. This is a look at the history of advertising, how ads have changed, what is acceptable and how social norms have changed. It's a look at how technology changes ads and how ads use new technology. It's sometimes a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Other times it's shocking and often humourous. More than good, it's good for you. O'Reilly on Advertising is a great source of media literacy
I need your full cooperation by Kathryn High( Visual )

2 editions published between 1989 and 1994 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looks at the development of attitudes toward the treatment of women as inherently sick, requiring calming and coddling, making them unfit for work outside the home, and of value to society only for the purpose of reproduction, and dominated by the reproductive cycle. In 1892 Charlotte Perkins Gilman wrote "The yellow wallpaper" about a woman undergoing a rest cure for an unidentified ailment. Excerpts from archival films and scenes from "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman illustrate how these attitudes shaped the practice of medicine and influenced woman's place in 20th century society
Major League Shutout by Terry Edward O'Reilly( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"O.B. Benson knows that, as a gay baseball player, his only chance to keep from being shut out of the Major Leagues is to stay as far from the public eye as possible. His low profile is threatened when the team manager insists he take part in a TV interview to help boost lagging fan support. Reporter Avery Turner is handsome, fit, and definitely pushes O.B.'s libido into high gear. He's also out and proud -- something O.B.'s situation doesn't allow. Avery also believes in monogamous commitment -- something O.B. can't identify with. But when Avery delivers a curveball to the catcher, O.B. doesn't know how to handle it. When O.B.'s interview is aired, he's forced to evaluate his life of meaningless one night stands. Can O.B. and Avery work out their differences and build a winning team, or will O.B. strike out?"--Page 4 of cover

"Lee Masters, a handsome young cowboy, is fired from his cattle drive when his sexual orientation is discovered.

They strike up a friendship, which readily turns to love. Their family is completed when a young Indian, Sleeps With Dogs, insists they take him with them on their search for a home. Their quest to find acceptance in either the white man's world or the native population is a difficult journey.

Dreams by Günter Eich( Recording )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This controversial play, first broadcast in Germany in 1951, consists of five thematically related dreams, each one occuring on a different continent. Dream 1 (Germany) : A family has been incarcerated in a rolling boxcar, where they have lived for at least 40 years. The old man cannot give up his memories of the outside world ; but the others, having never known it, don't want to hear about it. When they do, finally, get a look at the outside world, it frightens them and they choose to ignore it. Dream 2 (China) : a young boy is sacrificed to restore the health of an old man. Dream 3 (Australia) : Fearful neighbors drive a young family out of town for being happy and carefree in the presence of a vague and unspecified "enemy." Dream 4 (Africa) : Two young men on safari -- in search of happiness -- become disoriented by the jungle and lose all sense of purpose and direction. Dream 5 (America) : Amid prosperity and plenty, a young American couple discover that they're being hollowed out from within. The performance is followed by critical commentary on Eich and his work

Not in the NFL by Terry Edward O'Reilly( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Adam Davis isn't gay! He can't be -- he's a super star NFL quarterback and gay men don't survive in the NFL. But along comes Brendan Fletcher, an outstanding, Super Bowl-winning linebacker who awakens something in Adam, something Adam hadn't known was there. And now it's wakened, the quarterback will never be the same. Despite the threat to their careers and their personal safety, Adam and Brendan find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other, starting something that grows from gratification of mutual needs to something more. Can these men of strength and power on the gridiron overcome the homophobia of their profession? Can they make what they have found stand for something more important than the fame and fortune of playing NFL football or even becoming Super Bowl champions?"--Page 4 of cover

Christians at war : a return to two families in Belfast( Visual )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Summary: In 1969, when traditional prejudice and hostility between Northern Ireland's Protestants and Roman Catholics erupted into violence, BBC film crews went to stay with families on both sides of the barricades. The result was a film entitled "Christians at war", a revealing look at the situation through the eyes of ordinary men and women with a strong commitment to one side or the other. Made a year after the original, this documentary pays a return visit to this area of Belfast. It renews contacts with the people the reporters spoke to before and listens as they tell of their recent experiences. It presents clear evidence of continuing recalcitrance and hatred and though both sides claim to regret the violence, neither sees an end to the apparent stalemate
