"...From the left corner, panelist Doug Scott came out swinging with the idea that his company's game, the Hollywood Stock Exchange (which trades virtual movie stocks and star bonds), works effectively as "a retention tool" to keep players coming back. But what happens when the Web site itself is not a game? Let's say for a company like Saks Fifth Avenue? In that case, Tim Barber of Circumstance Design bluntly counters the possibility: "Games really can't attract traffic to a Web site." Instead, Barber advocates good old-fashioned marketing, widespread public relations, and advertising to increase click-through..."
"...A featured attraction of the event is a climbable 25-foot "mountain"(!), so you might actually get to take a crack at being King of the Hillel. Admission is free, so you'll have lots left over to spend at the Israeli-style discotheque, the Middle Eastern outdoor market (or "shuk"), the Turkish coffeehouse, and the concession stands featuring mouth-watering Middle Ezastern cuisine..."
"...They are also extraordinarily complicated contraptions that cost in the neighborhood of $40,000 apiece. Leininger got the idea for making and marketing the beds while he was running Baptist Health System's emergency department in the 1970s..."
"...Diamond is the first to hit the U.S. market with a Walkman-type portable player..."
"...Their 1998 A Christmas Affair is a series of events -- silent auctions, balls, ice cream socials, brunches, lunches, etc. -- which run Wed-Sun Nov 18-22, and range in price from $7 per person Market Days through the $100 per person A Winter's Eve black-tie ball..."
"...Of course without any Texas or Austin strings attached, if viewers aren't there, then Melchior has the wiggle room to go as national as necessary to try to draw them to watch. Melchior did assure the council, "We are really dedicated to keeping the local aspect," but what's the point of a local music channel that isn't required to broadcast local music? Will it become all Matchbox 20 all the time? No, but as a channel subject to an indifferent market, it could have less of a hand in helping local bands with little or no track record get the exposure they so desperately need...."
"...Shame on TV station KLRU (Channel 18)! In a very hectic week ending last Friday, where the stock market plunged drastically in the U.S. and over the globe, and the Russian government was in a state of imminent collapse, non-commercial station KLRU opted to cancel Friday evening's "Week in Review" and "Wall Street Week," for commercial purposes...."
"...The shows ran on PBS stations around the state last spring, including KLRU-2, cable channel 20. The new season of Guerra's program is being shot by San Antonio public television station KLRN in the kitchen of the new Broadway Central Market there, but will feature clips of life on the cattle ranch and other points of interest in the border region..."
"...That is to say, while there is an ample cost estimate for the expansion project, there's no real plan for construction, and while there's the usual assortment of market studies and industry opinion explaining why an expansion is essential, many Austinites are pretty confused about how a facility that's not yet six years old is already obsolete...."
"...Compare this album art to the 2-CD set of the soundtrack currently available on the market. First off, it's yellow..."
"...After audience members (about 1,800-2,000 at $30 each) were seated in the packed hotel ballroom, they were treated to an extended video commercial for Todd's new enterprise. Can you say niche marketing? - D.W..."
"...And also, I assumed that many of the people that I really want to hit -- middle-class, upper middle-class Latinos with at least some college or a very active kind of interest in the political process -- are probably online. I didn't do massive market research, I just used some common sense and experience....."
"...So what's the deal with cryptography? Sounds very technical and obscure, right? In wartime, sensitive communications are encrypted; one of the key tasks of intelligence agencies is code-breaking. What do ya do when encryption schemes hit the marketplace, with private companies competing over encryption strength? This gives security agencies the willies; however, privacy activists see strong encryption as the private citizen's right..."
"...Moya, 65, is field operations director with FirstTeam, a market research team and subcontractor to GTECH, the company under contract with the Texas Lottery. After losing his re-election bid 11 years ago, Moya worked for former Agricultural Commissioners Jim Hightower and Gov..."
"...Here's the other quote I read in the quiet of this morning, "Surprisingly, the city's antigrowth political climate helps investors sleep easily. Because developers face steep regulatory hurdles when they want to break ground, it's easier to monitor the growth of the market..."
"...UPS drivers' "wages are considerably higher than truck drivers earn on the nonunionized market; some drivers earn as little as $10 an hour to move oversize and unwieldy loads under worse conditions than UPS drivers," the Texan trio writes, as if the union should slide backwards towards poor conditions and be happy with it. "....."
"...These were weirdos, misfits, and outsiders who suddenly got validation, a license to wear their freak colors with pride, without fear of rejection. Sure, the world they encountered riding the bus or buying grapes at the market might still reject them, but the punk rock world was all-embracing; everyone in this community was just as much a freak as you were..."
"...I recently came back to Austin from a classless, nasty sewer, scam city, and endless traffic gridlock place called Houston. Because of the excellent job market and numerous other positives, I do plan to continue living here...."
"...Toys in the Attic "I was beginning to think this conversation was going along a lot longer than I really wanted to deal with," says Koon of his first contact with Raney, who called Sound Exchange in 1994 to ask how he could market his homemade tapes Daniel Johnston-style. "We try to be helpful to customers, but after a while you're spending all day on the phone..."
"...Observer publisher Geoff Rips and editor Louis Dubose blame the paper's lackluster circulation figures on inadequate marketing efforts. However, former managing publisher Rebecca Melançon, whose job, before she was recently fired, was to market the Observer, says the problem lies with the journal's editorial content..."
"...WEEKLY WINE TASTINGS are held at Sun Harvest Market, 4006 S. Lamar. Saturdays, 11am-4pm..."
"...The result is River Under the Road, a debut masterpiece worthy of a songwriter decades worldlier than this mere 20-year-old soul. The title track rips and sways like an International flatbed on a Farm-to-Market road, telling of rumbling currents which lie beneath the surface; not so much eerie foreshadowing, as giddy anticipation and acceptance of the mystery which lies ahead (and below): "It goes much farther, deeper and darker than the road above could ever go...." Co-written with Brown and Jimmie Dale Gilmore, the tune sets the tone for the rest of this near-perfect CD, brimming and shimmering with similar revelations. Is it any wonder then, that players like Rich Brotherton, Mary Cutrufello, Casper Rawls, Danny Barnes, Paul Glasse, and producers Brown and Dave Sanger were drawn to this project? Egge insists that she's lucky..."
"...The fourth has been an EUD mainstay, and shows FAIR at 98% cost-of-production. Even under that scenario FAIR is a liability, but staff doesn't want to lose the $24 million annual income from the Selfish Six in the event of a competitive, deregulated market..."
"...Wheatsville's current troubles clearly stem from the fact that they now face competitors who surpass them on both accounts. If you were to ask Austinites to name their town's "trendy gourmet and natural foods supermarket" (an epithet Smith applies to a Wheatsville competitor), Wheatsville would be as good an answer as Central Market or Whole Foods..."
"...Green's chapter on "The Oil and Gas Industry in Texas" in The Texas Heritage history textbook, the Texas Legislature attempted to empower the Railroad Commission with a series of laws designed to favor Texas oil companies over the large, out-of-state national firms, but those laws were struck down by federal courts at the request of the majors. When wildcatters got the jump on the large oil companies on newly discovered oil fields in East Texas during the 1930s and began flooding the market with barrels of crude that severely depressed oil prices, the Railroad Commission enacted prorationing laws to limit production..."
"...Market Day in Blanco brings vendors, craftsmen, and garage sales to the old courthouse square, 10am-5pm, every third Sat., Apr.-Nov. The courthouse is open for free tours all day..."
"..."That's what we're going to try to do. We're asking ourselves, `What role can we play in this?' We don't want to duplicate other efforts that weren't successful in helping the industry grow." The first order of business is to study the local multimedia market; multimedia because, one, it embraces such a wide range of components that contribute to entertainment, and two, because the industry is easier to track than, say, a scriptwriter holed up at home..."
"...What of old Round Rock? The Chisholm Trail historic district has the requisite olde-towne street signs, but they point the way to vacant properties and for-sale signs, bowed lanes of vintage dog-trots, sheds, and Sunday houses being peddled in the booming Williamson County real estate market. The Main Street drag itself -- with its own nostalgic signage that confusingly (until you know the above bit of history) dubs the commercial district "New Town" -- does not look quite as forlorn, although there are some empty storefronts..."
"...The bottom falls out from under the majors; everybody freaks. The superhero speculators' market (in which the major publishers flooded the market with new titles and "special editions" to appeal to gullible collectors), chugging along like a freight train two years ago, dies like a dog when most of these collectors grow a brain stem and realize the cases of foil-embossed nonsense cluttering their closets aren't worth a plug nickel..."
"...This will help AMD to close the gap between themselves and Intel in developing PC central processing units. AMD will rely heavily on work done by NexGen engineers in getting its K6 chips to market by the end of '96, hopefully resulting in even cheaper and faster computers for all of us...."
"...The Hostelry would be a structure through which these disparate theatres could draw strength from each other. These "theatres that choose to operate under radar, below the market - the pushcart robbers, the fools for God's sake, the creeps, the busted alchemists, the trolls" - could then "build a national theatre from a foundation of ethics, of assembly, of no-money."..."
"...25, 2015). I bought the small house while in college here, well before the Austin market exploded, and intended the property as a nest egg..."
"...That's just one example of some of the exemptions or loopholes we have; I know a lot of people have talked about appraisals not being consistent throughout the state. Travis County does a good job of getting appraised property values close to market value, but I'm not sure that's true throughout the state..."
"...Gender Unbound Winter Art Market Austin's trans and intersex art festival Gender Unbound is upping the ante this holiday season with a market filled with visual art, jewelry, apparel, and more made by – you guessed it – trans and intersex artists. Not only is it a great way to support the community, it's also perfect for gifting or keeping..."
"...• Is Sendero going to make it? The decision to meet the needs of more county residents by providing low-cost, nonprofit health insurance, though ambitious and altruistic, was never without risk. Despite seeing 50% growth in the first years of the Obamacare exchange, when its IdealCare plans were the lowest-cost in Travis, Sendero abruptly exited the market for Medicaid managed care and Children's Health Insurance Program plans earlier this year..."
"...The oils slowly extract, forming a thick syrup, with a bright and zesty flavor. Pool Burger makes theirs with lemon, grapefruit, and orange. Sour Duck Market: Nitro Cory's Coffee..."
"...Fuego ATX It's back and hotter than ever. Regal People and Chorizo Funk make you move whilst you're buying wares from the QTPOC artisan market..."
"...Fri., May 18, 7-10pm. The Market, 4300 N..."
"...The store is upfront about using "conspiracy" to describe its beliefs, which include government-involved false flag terrorism, 9/11 truthism, and efforts to combat global, totalitarian, and dictatorial governments. Libertarianism, the shop's most easily referenced ideology, delves into anarchism as it approaches an embrace of free market and stateless society...."
"...When I moved to Austin from New York 13 years ago, I went to great lengths to bring certain foods back to Texas after visits home. I've smuggled fresh farmers' market corn and tomatoes on board from Jersey; I carried a box of Doughnut Plant goodies like a lap child..."
"...Fuego ATX: Holigayz Edition A QTPOC holiday market meets dance party with Chulita Vinyl Club, DJ See Jane Spin, and more. Thu., Dec..."
"...Artist and jewelry maker TK Tunchez remembers how difficult it was when she first moved to Austin from San Antonio to be a woman of color in mostly white spaces. The pop-up markets here were usually expensive to attend, and the clientele did not always appreciate her work, so she felt pressured to change her creative style to conform to mainstream jewelry-making...."
"...Several bright yellow bunches of bananas crown a parcel loaded with shiny apples; cartons of berries commingle with sweet potatoes, asparagus, and bunches of herbs. Schroeder isn't preparing for the farmers' market, but rather his weekly delivery to Casa Marianella, an East Austin shelter housing 50 recent immigrants and asylum seekers. [inset-3-right]..."
"...The Plaza Saltillo area first saw organized occupation in 1992 via Olé Mexico, a coalition of East Austin business owners who wanted to drum up tourism east of the highway. Cap Metro bought the rail-line ground in 1995, and two years later leased an acre to the city so Olé Mexico could build today's rail station and the community outpost that hosts the HOPE Farmers Market..."
"...Green's Sausage House is the shopping mall of Zabcikville. The long, low, ranch-house-style building surrounded by fields on TX-53 is a cafe, bakery, meat market, deer processor, grocery store, and if you include the gimme caps, a haberdashery...."
"...After a decade writing about this, I've learned something: tech entrepreneurs love cliches. Abstract verbs like "hack" and "disrupt" are used when new gadgets enter the market; talented coders are described as "ninjas" or "gurus," and disingenuous claims about how some new innovation will change the world are peddled all the time..."
"...Nick Virden Occupation: Market analyst at a real estate finance firm Experience: Former intern at the Texas State Capitol Issues: Wants to increase affordability, lower property taxes, reduce zoning restrictions, improve public transportation, support ridesharing, foster tech innovation, and improve infrastructure Treasurer: Nicholas A.

"...Drag lovers can also expect live podcasts including Feast of Fun, Nina West’s DragCast!, and The Gayest Channel on Earth! Starring Jonny McGovern and Lady Red Couture. This year’s Drag Market will feature vendors from all over the country who will be selling wigs, costumes, small trinkets, original art, and gifts...."
"...They began operating without adhering to existing Austin ordinances; they drafted and then accepted a temporary, pre-“pilot” ordinance they now insist was permanent; and they’re in the midst of the massive funding of a petition campaign and vote-buying, combined with threats of departure and extremely dishonest promotion and advertising to persuade Austin voters to confirm their domination. Despite all claims to the contrary, this campaign has little to do with “fingerprinting” (the public safety standard) and nothing at all to do with either libertarian principles or the “free market.” Uber and Lyft want a playing field heavily tilted to their advantage, so they can eliminate the local competition and monopolize the ride-hailing market – after which they will resume squeezing drivers and riders as they have persistently done elsewhere...."
