From The Daily What:
A fun loving cartoon pig is turning out to be a very bad influence on a boy from London.
Amari Black, who has rickets disease and learning difficulties, got a new Peppa Pig learning tablet for Christmas, which offers a number of different educational games and activities.
But an apparent glitch in the toy has Peppa teaching Black a phrase that’s not exactly appropriate for a 3-year-old.
Instead of “find the odd one out,” it sounds like she is saying “fu*k you… odd one out.” You can listen for yourself in the video above.
Black’s parents said they were shocked when their son first shouted the word in front of them, and the couple has written a letter to the manufacturer InspirationWorks to complain. They have yet to hear back.
“Now he’s saying it constantly and he finds it funny,” said his father, Garfield. “I tell him swearing is wrong but he keeps saying it now.”
I guess the only reason I am applying is because I studied Journalism, originally am an Engineer and is right now studying in a Left Leaning institution (Masters in Sociology [redacted] University, New Delhi, India) which studies markets just to criticize them. I don't read much of the magazine that you mentioned in your job-requirement article buy yes I do have an analytical mind and I understand that one event in one country means to markets all over the world.
I know I am not tailor made for the job and I have just 3 months after May 5th before I resume the new semester here. Nevertheless, this looked interesting.
It was fun applying!
Thanks and regards,

From Huff Po:
After sitting through the first five unavoidable seconds of a YouTube preroll ad, most people don’t bother watching the spot till the end. But Geico is now hoping to change that with two new preroll commercials that promise to be “unskippable.”
Both Geico ads, created by The Martin Agency, cleverly place emphasis on the first five seconds, acknowledging that they only have those few moments to capture the audience's attention.
“You can’t skip this Geico ad,” the commercial says, “because it’s already over.”
If viewers choose to continue watching, however, they're rewarded with an unexpected and funny ending.
One of the ads features a family sitting around a dining table while another shows two friends enjoying a barbecue. Watch how the first commercial unfolds in the video above. The other ad can be viewed here:
