THE Brazil’s Nestlé Molico Explores ‘Humanity’ in Short Film Series/strong>
In a major storytelling and branded entertainment effort, Nestlé Molico in Brazil has produced and launched 12 short black and white documentary films with real people telling their stories. The theme presents a debate about humanity, and values frequently considered “feminine” in the modern society.
The topic arose following a research study that found Brazilians consider the values of understanding, caring, listening, trusting, sheltering and sensitivity as essential to being human—today, more than ever.

COLORADO DEMOCRAT ADVOCATES FOR GUN CONTROL BY PEPPER-SPRAYING HIS EYEBALLS IN NEAT NEW AD [WATCH]
A Democrat running for a seat in Colorado’s sixth congressional district is taking an unorthodox approach to getting the vote out.
Levi Tillemann, a progressive candidate running for a House seat this year, released an ad last week that he hopes will shine a light on alternative approaches to gun control in schools and other soft-target areas.
“I’m calling on Congress to stop talking past each other and try something new,” he says in the video. “Empower schools and teachers with non-lethal self-defense tools, like this can of pepper spray.”

Dennis Rodman and Potcoin: How Crypto Gatecrashed a Historic Summit
With all eyes on Singapore this week, was it any surprise crypto would make an appearance?
The historic summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un got the crypto community’s attention – and held it – thanks to Dennis Rodman and the notorious cryptocurrency that funded his travel to Singapore, potcoin.
CoinDesk reported on June 7 that retired basketball star Dennis Rodman was headed to Singapore for the Summit with the help of the marijuana-themed cryptocurrency. As a celebrity who have visited North Korea several times, Rodman’s trip was considered as “a celebrity twist” to the historical geopolitical event.

Watch Sony’s PlayStation E3 2018 press conference
This is going to be an interesting year for Sony with the PlayStation 4 nearing the end of its lifecycle, but another console being at least three years away. It’s possible that we’ll get price drops on the existing hardware, but there likely won’t be other announcements in that area. We don’t expect to hear the Vita even mentioned this year, in fact.

Op-Ed: Why Brands Should Create ‘Invisible’ Experiences
Most marketing meetings, conferences and publications are dominated by talk of technology, and for good reason. But while we race to put tech front-and-center in our strategies and creative approach, a seemingly contradictory phenomenon is taking place on the consumer side: the need not to see or acknowledge tech as people go about their lives.
Tech has never been more visible, but consumers have never had a stronger desire—for their productivity and peace-of-mind—to make it invisible.
