“Believe it or not, advertising on the Super Bowl can be downright economical,” says Bridges, an expert on branding and advertising. She gives eight reasons the Super Bowl is a unique opportunity for advertisers:
1. Exposure to nearly 100 million viewers of the game itself and to an attractive demographic.
2. Extensive publicity before and after the event in a variety of media and media channels.
3. Engagement levels of the audience in the ads are incredibly high (no zipping or zapping; people want to watch the commercials).
4. Excitement of game day can lead to positive feelings being associated with/transferred to the ads/advertisers.
5. Employee morale can be boosted, especially at a time when workers are looking for a reason to feel proud.
6. Evangelical word-of-mouth after the game (around the office water cooler, on the subway, in the checkout line, etc.) about favorite ads.
7. Extended ad life and exposure via airings on Internet sites devoted to Super Bowls ads, including YouTube and advertiser Web pages.
8. Elite image associated with Super Bowl stimulates an "eagle effect" -- if a brand can fly high with the other eagles, it must be good.
“The bottom line…watching Super Bowl commercials is an event in itself,” Bridges says. But, she warns advertisers to steer clear of messages related to the bad economy. “Viewers want ads that make them smile, laugh or get choked up, not those that make them feel depressed,” she says.
Bridges has followed Super Bowl commercials for years and is available to analyze Super Bowl XLIV’s winners and losers.For interviews contact Kerry M. King, email@example.com or

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Scientists developed specially coated nanometer-sized vehicles that can be actively moved through dense tissue like the vitreous of the eye. So far, the transport of nano-vehicles has only been demonstrated in model systems or biological fluids, but not in real tissue. The work was published in the journal Science Advances and constitutes one step further towards nanorobots becoming minimally-invasive tools for precisely delivering medicine to where it is needed.
Researchers of the “Micro, Nano and Molecular Systems” Lab at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, together with an international...
