n the future, shopping will be greatly influenced by a combination of localization issues, mobile internet at the point of sale, and use of social networks. This book focuses on the SoLoMo synergies that arise from this paradigm shift in future shopping, which also promises new and effective marketing options for traditional retailers. It also reflects the current status of research and business practice, analyzing the basic factors of SoLoMo in detail. The importance of Location-based Services (LBS) is elaborated and analyzed in an empirical study using a market based case of kaufDA - a leading German online shopping network. The evidence shows that customers see LBS as an attractive tool and are prepared to change their buying behavior. Though LBS is still in its early stages and its professional longevity remains to be seen, it also promises tremendous potential for the future.

A man who tried to bring welfare and justice to a playground of gang culture and destitution while everyone around him drew guns and partied. It’s a captivating tale of gold hunters and evangelical pastors, bent police and rich-kid addicts, quixotic politicians and drug lords with maths degrees. Spanning rainforests and high-security prisons, filthy slums and glittering shopping malls, this is also the story of how change came to Brazil. Of a country’s journey into the global spotlight and the battle for the beautiful but damned city of Rio as it struggles to break free from a tangled web of corruption, violence, drugs and poverty.

Urbanization of the Earth: Urban geography is a lively and almost unlimited field of research. Supported by its neighbouring disciplines such as demography, sociology, economics and technologies of construction, traffic management and communications, it seeks to recognize trends and principles, and with regard to the future, to facilitate structured action. Entitled ´´Urbanization of the Earth´´, this series provides a platform for critically investigating a crucial junction in the relationships between man and the Earth. Humans as individuals or society as a whole, have proved to be a powerful force for shaping the surface of the Earth, almost equalling natural phenomena. Many more urban phenomena await study and analysis - generating a great deal of material, at least for further studies within urban geography and the observation of this lively interface between humans and their environment. Large investments in the real estate and tourism sector, as well as rising numbers of tourists and immigrants, have led to a sustained boom in Dubai and Las Vegas. At the same time, and against the background of an urban governance and the transfer of competences to private and semi-state actors in both metropolises, a brisk urban transformation has been embarked upon, with the creation of countless entertainment, shopping, and artificial worlds. This development is primarily characterised by the theming of everyday life, but above all an ´´Economy of Fascination´´. The casino and hotel landscapes simulating various scenes from Ancient Rome to modern New York, artificial islands in the shapes of palm trees or whole world maps as well as other superlatives in the form of themed shopping malls and sports arenas are the most visible results of these rapid changes. This paper develops guidelines for a research perspective called ´´Economy of Fascination´´ and turns to Dubai and Las Vegas to exemplify the approach. An analytical understanding first builds on general trends and development lines against the backdrop of urban governance, entertainment orientation, and commercialisation. They form the starting point for an analysis of the mechanisms of attention and fascination, which are considered to be the main aspects of an ´´Economy of Fascination´´.

Feminism has hit the big time. Once a dirty word brushed away with a grimace, feminist´´ has been rebranded as a shiny label sported by movie and pop stars, fashion designers, and multi-hyphenate powerhouses like Beyoncé. It drives advertising and marketing campaigns for everything from wireless plans to underwear to perfume, presenting what´s long been a movement for social justice as just another consumer choice in a vast market. Individual self-actualization is the goal, shopping more often than not the means, and celebrities the mouthpieces.But what does it mean when social change becomes a brand identity? Feminism´s splashy arrival at the centre of today´s media and pop-culture marketplace, after all, hasn´t offered solutions to the movement´s unfinished business. Planned Parenthood is under sustained attack, women are still paid 77 percent,or less,of the man´s dollar, and vicious attacks on women, both on- and offline, are utterly routine.Andi Zeisler, a founding editor of Bitch Media, draws on more than twenty years´ experience interpreting popular culture in this biting history of how feminism has been co-opted, watered down, and turned into a gyratory media trend. Surveying movies, television, advertising, fashion, and more, Zeisler reveals a media landscape brimming with the language of empowerment, but offering little in the way of transformational change. Witty, fearless, and unflinching, We Were Feminists Once is the story of how we let this happen, and how we can amplify feminism´s real purpose and power.
