PromotionalCodes.com Predicts What Will Catch the Eye of Consumers in 2014

Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2014

The 2013 holiday season has shown that consumers are adapting methods of making purchases to modern times, as evidenced in studies by the National Retail Federation that show fewer shoppers relying on credit (31.8%) and more doing at least some shopping online (77%). By acquiring a better understanding of how consumers spend, the question becomes what shoppers will decide to buy in 2014.

Advances in mobile technology will be one of the biggest influencers in consumer spending this year, says PromotionalCodes.com Savings Expert Regina Novickis. Consumers will want to find better ways to use the products they already have, both in terms of utility and safety. Likewise, products and services that improve quality of life will be popular this year, and not just those that make life simpler. People will want to tackle the physical and mental health issues discussed so much in modern media and that means more than just going to the gym.

The ubiquity of mobile technology will serve as a platform for innovative companies to create products that best address the needs of todays consumer needs that have grown less superficial and more constructive, from dealing with stress-related ailments to becoming a more well-rounded individual. Yet consumers understand that increased usage of mobile devices leaves their personal information more vulnerable and want to be assured of their privacy accordingly. The experts at PromotionalCodes.com have addressed these developments in their outline of consumer buying trends for 2014:

Social Media Agency fishbat, Inc. Comments On NYPD Using Social Media To Catch Criminals In Brooklyn

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) February 14, 2013

On February 14, social media agency, fishbat Inc., releases a statement commenting on the New York Police Department’s use of social media to track down gang members in Brooklyn.

According to the article published by the NY Daily News, police officers from the 73rd Precinct in Brownsville, Brooklyn have confiscated more guns than any other precinct in the city. The article said these police officers took 199 guns off the streets last year over 40 more than 2011. It was the highest number of firearms confiscated in any precinct last year. The department’s success was achieved by simply scouring social media for clues related to weapons or gang activity.

In the article, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said last month that nearly 60 percent of the murders in the city involved handguns. The article also said that 92 people were shot in Brownsville in 2012 the highest of any NYC precinct.

Deputy Inspector Joseph Gulotta said social media has changed how police look for criminals. Officers perform routine Facebook searches using gang slang to single out people who might be involved in major crimes. Experienced cops familiar with gang-related lingo can easily recognize references to illegal activity on social media. For instance, the article said if a search result lists a variation of OccFam, that page or profile probably refers to the violent gang, the Crips.

Justin Maas, VP of Client Relations for social media agency fishbat, Inc., comments, saying that social media is not just for friends or marketers. Most people think social media is a tool used for stalking old friends or catching up with family members, he said. However, the NYPD is showing how social media which is, from one view, simply a body of aggregated, raw data can be used for all kinds of research about human activities. A simple non-invasive search gives the police clues as to whos involved in specific gangs and what they might be planning to do. Who knows what other kind of cool, anthropological applications we’ll find for social media in the future? Maas concludes by saying more precincts should be using social media to crack down on crime or illegal activity.

So far, the 73rd Precinct has confiscated 25 guns this year, more than twice the number they’d confiscated at this time last year, the article said. If you gather intelligence, you will get the guns off the street, Gulotta said in the article. Its about targeted enforcement. Its about focusing on the guns and the crews.

fishbat, Inc. is a full service online marketing firm. Through social media management, search engine optimization (SEO), web design, and public relations, fishbat strives as a marketing firm to raise awareness about your brand and strengthen your corporate image.

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
Event on 2013-06-07 20:00:00

Based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story that inspired it, CATCH ME IF YOU CAN is the high-flying, splashy new Broadway musical that tells the story of Frank W. Abagnale, Jr., a teenager who runs away from home in search of the glamorous life. With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer – living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. But when Frank's lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, Carl chases Frank to the end…and finds something he never expected.

This delightfully entertaining musical has been created by a Tony Award®-winning "dream team," with a book by Terrence McNally (The Full Monty, Ragtime), a swinging score by Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman (Hairspray), choreography by Jerry Mitchell (Hairspray, Legally Blonde) and direction by Jack O'Brien (Hairspray, The Full Monty, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels).

Don't miss this big-hearted musical adventure based on an astonishing real-life story of being young, in love… and in deep, deep trouble!

Playing Catch and Juggling with a Humanoid Robot

Robots in entertainment environments typically do not allow for physical interaction and contact with people. However, catching and throwing back objects is one form of physical engagement that still maintains a safe distance between the robot and participants. Using an animatronic humanoid robot, we developed a test bed for a throwing and catching game scenario. We use an external camera system (ASUS Xtion PRO LIVE) to locate balls and a Kalman filter to predict ball destination and timing. The robot’s hand and joint-space are calibrated to the vision coordinate system using a least-squares technique, such that the hand can be positioned to the predicted location. Successful catches are thrown back two and a half meters forward to the participant, and missed catches are detected to trigger suitable animations that indicate failure. Human to robot partner juggling (three ball cascade pattern, one hand for each partner) is also achieved by speeding up the catching/throwing cycle. We tested the throwing/catching system on six participants (one child and five adults, including one elderly), and the juggling system on three skilled jugglers.
