By one expert´s prediction, within 20 years half of Americans will have body implants that tell retailers how they feel about specific products as they browse their local stores. The notion may be outlandish, but it reflects executives´ drive to understand shoppers in the aisles with the same obsessive detail that they track us online. In fact, a hidden surveillance revolution is already taking place inside brick-and-mortar stores, where Americans still do most of their buying. Drawing on his interviews with retail executives, analysis of trade publications, and experiences at insider industry meetings, advertising and digital studies expert Joseph Turow pulls back the curtain on these trends, showing how a new hyper-competitive generation of merchants - including Macy´s, Target, and Walmart - is already using data mining, in-store tracking, and predictive analytics to change the way we buy, undermine our privacy, and define our reputations. 1.

Learn the history of Stonehenge with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Five thousand years ago, at the same time as the pyramids were being constructed in Egypt, another monolithic structure was being built in the English county now known as Wiltshire. This structure, a complex series of earthworks and towering standing stones, is one of Europe´s most famous prehistoric sites. But while we know quite a lot about who built the pyramids, and how and why they were constructed, we know very little about Stonehenge. Was it an astronomical observatory? A place of magic and ritual? A burial ground? A place of healing? The debate still rages. Part of the reason why Stonehenge remains such a mystery, is that it was constructed by people who had no form of written language, so there are no records, other than the stones themselves. So who were these mysterious stonemasons?
