So you pre-pick the brand of soap your going to buy?

Uh, yes.

All the more reason advertisers want your eyeballs-- you're loyal to your brand. One day you're going to need to buy diapers, or ointment, or any of a million other things you don't currently purchase. They want you to have some pre-existing knowledge of their brand. All other things being equal, it'll make it more likely you'll pick them. And become a customer for life.

After spending all their money on cell phones, kids cannot afford to buy products advertised to them on Facebook.

What? Parents buy the phones most of the times and pay for the minutes/data as well, which leads to point #2: kids have no bills. Every single dollar they have is disposable. Advertising gold.

You don't have to approach them as if you are blowing the whistle on your boss. Just tell them you are concerned about your personal liability should you get caught breaking the law.

Remember, the lawyers are there to protect the company, not you. Seek your own counsel first.

the point of this "Science of Interrogation" is exactly that-- using existing scientific research to improve how to interrogate detainees (i.e., no torture). You'd be surprised how little they know about the topic-- they've mostly been winging it.

I met with two very nice and non-tortuous ladies from the FBI who were quite interested in our research on question-asking. They wanted to know, among other things, what type of question gets a certain type of response.

And as to your question about MA in interrogation, the FBI does have a post-doc position available to research the subject. I was encouraged to apply, but I declined, for personal reasons. But it's all above board.

If you do something right once, someone will ask you to do it again.
