    Get Your Book Published

    Earlier this year we teamed up with Kazoo Independent Publishing Services and the RTE Guide, to give you the opportunity to publish THAT book you’ve written but may not yet have had a chance to get published. It’s a prize worth 5,000 euros.

    We had a fantastic response and the winner will be announced at the end of August.

    Branding

    Minister for Health, James Reilly, last week reaffirmed his intention to strip all cigarette packs of their branding next year. He’s following the lead of Australia where all cigarette packs have been branding-free since last December. And the early research from Australia is very interesting: it’s found that smokers find their cigarettes much less satisfying when they come in plain packets. Some smokers have even complained to the manufacturers that the flavour of their favourite cigarette has actually changed.

    We often think of our five senses - taste; smell; touch; hearing; and
    sight – as being somehow objective or impartial… but, in fact, they’re really very malleable and suggestible.

    Consumer psychologist, Colm Carey, from TheResearchCentre.ie explains what’s going on.    http://theresearchcentre.ie/
