Sunday Tidbits

For all Sundays starting today, I would be (re)posting a few good reads here and there which I've shared during the entire week in my other social media sites. These may be of interest to marketing people, to social advocates, or to those who simply love to discover new things and learn about new stuff out there.

Now that the formalities are done, here's the roundup of all links that caught my eye in the week that was:

On Gender and Sexuality
"Now there's a headline I thought I'd never get the chance to write. Turns out that while Pope Benedict XVI has gone around the world campaigning against the rights of gays and lesbians to get married, he's overlooked the fact that his own ship isn't really in order", says Michael A. Jones in The Pope's Gay Sex Scandal.

"What does having a set of ovaries have to do with directing a film? It's through her eyes that she sees, not through her mammaries or anything else", says Jeremy Renner, quoted by the Philippine Daily Inquirer in Women directors face 'celluloid ceiling'.

On Politics and Governance
"Administration candidate Gilbert Teodoro on Thursday balked at calls by the Catholic Church to ban condom ads, saying it is a form of censorship and is in violation of the Constitution", reports the Philippine Daily Inquirer in Condom ads ban a form of censorship, says Teodoro.

On Marketing
"As a marketing tool Twitter gets much more interesting and useful when you can filter out 99% of the junk that doesn't apply to your objectives and focus on the stuff that matters", says John Jantsch in 7 Insanely Useful Ways to Search Twitter for Marketing.

"Social marketing budgets are constantly going up, according to 'The CMO Survey' from Duke University's Fuqua School of Business and the American Marketing Association", reports eMarketer in Marketing Budgets Spiral Towards Social.

On WTF is Wrong With This Picture?
"Police said the parents had become so addicted to the life they were leading online, and the daughter that they were raising there, that they appeared to have not taken seriously their responsibility to their real daughter", reports The Sydney Morning Herald in Couple let baby starve after becoming obsessed with raising a virtual daughter online: police.
