Brilliant ad from Salvation Army uses "The Dress" in domestic violence PSA

Brilliant ad from Salvation Army uses "The Dress" in domestic violence PSA | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
“Why is it so hard to see black and blue?” reads the headline in a public service announcement advertisement from the Salvation Army. The ad uses the popularity of last week’s viral dress illusion with copy that reads “The only illusion is if you think it was her choice. One in 6 women are victims of abuse. Stop abuse against women.” Brilliant! http://geekslop.com/2015/ad-salvation-army-the-dress-why-is-it-so-hard-to-see-black-and-blue

Google AdSense employee launches accusations claiming Google purposely rips off website publishers

Google AdSense employee launches accusations claiming Google purposely rips off website publishers | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
As all website operators know, Google can be a bit iron-handed (and vague) when it comes to AdSense ad policies. Website’s must follow strict guidelines on content, placement of ads, and adhere to agreements prohibiting them from running certain competing ads on their sites. And if something goes wrong or Google perceives the website owner has broken the rules, AdSense accounts are shut down – permanently. There is no resolution for the “kiss of death” either. Yesterday a self-proclaimed disgruntled AdSense employee released a bombshell, claiming that Google purposely rips off its AdSense clients through program policies designed to shutdown accounts with opportune timing (for Google). Google swiftly denied the claims. http://geekslop.com/2014/google-adsense-employee-launches-accusations-claiming-google-purposely-rips-website-publishers
