Monday morning news
Seems to be a slow morning...but here's a few things I've found so far.
Proposal to end misleading or vague claims in advertising. "A Commission proposal due to be adopted this Wednesday (16 July) could spell the beginning of the end for well-known advertising slogans and claims used by food and pharmaceutical companies across the EU. The proposal will harmonise rules concerning vague or misleading claims used by advertisers in the food industry such as "this product combats stress" or "helps your mood". The Commission is angling to ban such claims because they are not only too vague, but they are also difficult to verify scientifically and confusing for consumers."

Art exhibit at The Milwaukee Art Museum will feature the Industrial Strength Design: How Brooks Stevens Shaped Your World, June 7 – September 7, 2003. The exhibition, organized by the Milwaukee Art Museum, highlights one of the most influential industrial designers of the 20th century and one of the most significant artistic personalities ever to work in Milwaukee. Virtually all Americans have been affected by Stevens’ creations, ranging from the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile and the Miller Brewing logo to the wide-mouthed peanut butter jar.
