let me clarify what I mean

They are using the idea of donating to AIDS research with the money you used to buy X. Now some people who were not planning to buy X will see this and think "oh look, they are donating for AIDS on everything we buy today, we should buy something to help!"

On the other hand people who were going to buy, but maybe not on friday see it and say "oh boy, if we buy this a few weeks early, we will be helping support AIDS research!"

This is nothing more than using social engineering to get more buyers by tugging at the heartstrings. In no way is apple to be singled out by doing this is happens all the time, im just surprised more people dont understand this technique

I wonder if this is where all the anti, and all the pro AGW "studies" are done

What I mean is has anyone actually sourced out all the sources on both sides of the isle? does one side use these shady journals to "prove" the other side wrong? Do both do it? or do the studies we get side come from mostly reputable sources

With all the fancy scientists in the world, why can't they just once build a nuclear balm?
