According to the National Urban Technology Center’s website, a 2013
OECD study published in
the N.Y. Times cited that youth and adults in the U.S. are
fairing dismally as compared to 19 other countries in proficiency areas
such as literacy, math, and problem solving in technology-rich
environments. Urban Tech hopes to change that. At its annual gala earlier this month, TNJ.com interviewed its president.
Ford is the second-largest U.S.-based automaker and the fifth largest in the world. To promote its 2013 Ford Escape, the company has created a humorous
campaign called “Brand New,” which features TV ads, print, radio and
digital executions and targets multicultural consumers.
