About Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time”: Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time” is an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.

Tiffany Haddish Joins Hands With Method To “Fight Dirty” in a New Comedic PSA ...

Tiffany Haddish Joins Hands With Method To "Fight Dirty" in a New Comedic PSA 

 tiffany haddish, radiofacts
Method, the pioneer of premium planet-friendly and design-driven home, fabric and personal care products, today launched "Fight Dirty," a tongue-in-cheek PSA starring America's newest favorite funny woman, Tiffany Haddish. Debuting at the height of cold and flu season, the two-minute spot is designed to raise awareness of the importance of washing your hands. "Who better than Tiffany Haddish to help method fight dirty?" asks Doug Piwinski, Chief Marketing Officer of People Against Dirty. "She's culturally relevant, super funny and one of the most sought-after comedic talents today. One would think that washing your hands after using the restroom is a no-brainer, but Tiffany has turned this seemingly simple act into something memorable, impactful and shareable." Named "the funniest woman alive" by VanityFair.com, Tiffany Haddish most recently starred in Universal's Girls Trip alongside Jada Pinkett SmithQueen Latifah, and Regina Hall. In addition to bringing her comedy to stages around the world, Haddish can be seen on her new Showtime comedy special, "Tiffany Haddish: SHE READY! From the Hood to Hollywood," as well as alongside Tracy Morgan in the upcoming TBS show, "The Last O.G." "Although some people say I have a dirty mouth, I actually love the feeling of being clean," said Tiffany Haddish. "It was so much fun partnering with method on this PSA to make the world a cleaner place, one hand wash at a time." As funny as Tiffany Haddish is, the fact remains that not washing your hands is no laughing matter. Consider the following:
  • Eighty percent of common infections are spread by hands, according to the CDC.
  • 111 million workdays will be lost, costing nearly $7 billion in lost productivity between October and May.
  • Hands can host more than germs. A recent study in London found 1 in 6 people tested positive for fecal bacteria on their hands or mobile devices.
The CDC also notes that talking on your phone may spread germs from your respiratory system onto the screen, some of which can cause the flu. Those particles can live on the surface of your devices for up to 24 hours. Once there, the viral particles are easily spread by you or anyone else's fingers after touching the screen or buttons. In addition to the "Fight Dirty" PSA, method's mini seasonal campaign consists of other digital content – including :30, :15 and behind-the-scenes videos – as well as a dedicated Tumblr page.  To see more, visit methodhome.tumblr.com.

Smart Speaker Industry May Breathe New Life into Commercial Radio

rfocus.orgA new white paper focusing on the growing smart speaker trend indicates that devices like Amazon Alexa may bring commercial radio back into homes. People have not listened to commercial radio in their homes in over 20 years but the report states the digital concept of smart speakers may change that. Some feel the smart speaker concept is a bit TOO invasive and they are not trusting of what ELSE the device can do, like turn on at will and record conversations, but that may (or may not) fade with time. Here is a copy of the report. Radio once occupied a central space in American homes and created a shared listening experience. Mobile devices and the rise of personalized listening have undermined that dynamic. However, the rising popularity of smart speakers and voice assistants like that of Amazon Echo and Alexa are offering radio broadcasters a new opportunity to bring radio back into the home. Xappmedia-10-best-practices-white-paper.png Our new Amazon Alexa Radio Report takes a data-driven look at the market. The report includes 23 charts and 16 pages of analysis based on 10 different studies related to smart speakers and answers questions including: Why consumers are buying smart speakers How people use their smart speakers The listening habits of smart speaker owners How radio broadcasters are taking advantage of the new trend And more…
