x3 + y3 + z3 = 33 has a solution in Z. And its big!

Consider the following problem: Given k, a natural number, determine if there exists x,y,z INTEGERS such that x3+y3+z3=k. It is not obvious that this problem is decidable (I think it is but have not been able to find an exact statement to that affect; however, if it was not solvable, I would know that, hence it is solvable. If you know a ref give it in the comments.) If k≡ 4,5 mod 9 then mod arguments easily show there is no solution. Huisman showed that if k≤ 1000, k≡1,2,3,6,7,8 mod 9 and max(...

Corporate Class – 5 Secrets to Polishing Your Company’s Image

The way in which people perceive your business can play a significant part in how prominent and successful it is. You can’t put your branding on a shack and call it a multi-million-dollar corporation. Nor can you bowl down a children’s orphanage then call yourself a corporation that cares about “the little guy.” Everything you do in the public eye is all for the sake of polishing your company’s image. If it has been some time since you pulled out the branding Brasso, then it might be time to che...

Infographic: Consumers Prefer High-Quality Imagery to Cutting-Edge Tech From Brands

There are so many brands online, but the majority of consumers follow fewer than 10 of them, according to new research from digital asset management platform Bynder. Maybe that's because brands have been laying it on a little too heavy; the latest data suggests brands should go back to the basics. Consumers say the most...

A brief (sort of) history of agencies

Ad Age just produced its 75th annual Agency Report, so we dug through the archives to see how the agency business has (and has not) changed. The result is an agency timeline capturing highlights from 1945, when we published the first Agency Report, to 2019. The timeline shows the rocket growth of TV from 1948, when just 0.4 percent of U.S. households had a set, to 1954, when TVs were in 55 percent of U.S. homes and TV ad revenue moved ahead of magazines and radio. We track the rise of d...

Ad Age Agency Report 2019: Growth slows, digital reaches a crossroads and agency companies regroup

U.S. agency revenue rose a tepid 1.7 percent in 2018, the weakest growth since the ad market emerged from recession. But there are positive indicators. Omnicom Group’s stock this month scored a multiyear high, a bet by investors that the big agency company will keep growing. Digital revenue for U.S. agencies increased a healthy 7.2 percent in 2018. U.S. ad agency employment last summer broke through its year 2000 peak to reach a new all-time high, though agencies have trimmed staff since then....

"Preserving" the Repubic of Statutes

David Super ends his post, "The legislative filibuster is crucial in preserving" the republic of statutes. The language of preservation is the language of the status quo.The implicit argument is this: Suppose we make it easier for progressive majorities to enact new statutes. Doing so will make it easier for conservative majorities -- when they exist -- to repeal existing statutes. And we have more to fear from the repeal of existing statutes than we have to gain from enacting new ones. This mig...

"A Canticle for Liebowitz" and the Supreme Court

Warren Miller's 1959 science fiction novel A Canticle for Liebowitz describes a world taken over by the forces of irrationality. A small group of monks retreat to their abbey with a collection of books saved by Isaac Liebowitz, the last repository of rationalism. The monks study the books for centuries and sporadically re-enter the world in an always-futile hope to re-establish a well-functioning social order guided by science and reason.Today many liberals who factor the Supreme Court into thei...

Why Critics of Court-Packing Proposals Aren't Watching the Whole Board of Politics

David Super's post on Court-packing properly sees Court-packing proposals in a larger political context. Rather than assuming that the proposals would be implemented in a politics-free world, he knows that they can succeed only if Democrats control the Presidency and both houses of Congress, and that Republican retaliation could occur only after Republicans regained control of all three (although that point gets a bit blurred because of his attention to the Senate -- Court-packing will stick as ...

Can You Look at These Wonderfully Evocative Coke Ads Without Hearing Them?

Sonic branding is a hot topic among marketers these days, but one might assume the idea of branded sounds (like the click of a Zippo lighter or the fading static of HBO's logo) is limited to ads that have, you know, audio. However, Coca-Cola's newest European campaign, "The First Print Ads You Can Hear," proves...

“The Twenty-Six Words That Created the Internet”

“No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider” (Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996). Those 26 words (and not a member of Congress) invented the internet as we know it. These words protect internet platforms from lawsuits based on user-generated content, allowing them to open their doors to a dizzying variety of sentiment and speech. Absent that sentence...
