How to successfully use shame and guilt in advertising

Thu, 2014-11-20 11:05

Shame and guilt have different effects on consumer buying habits, new research from the Desautels Faculty of Management in Canada finds.

In September, the Quebec government announced that McGill’s operating grant would be almost $15 million less than what it had proposed in the spring — and warned that a second wave of cuts were to come. On Nov. 12, Quebec’s universities and CEGEPs were hit with that new round of cuts, amounting to $31.6 million. McGill’s share is close to $5 million. Provost Anthony C.

EduQuarium space offers public computers, tranquility

Recently reopened to all students in the Faculty of Education, an enclosed area on the Education building’s 1st floor offers state-of-the-art computers for private use without reservation, ideal for those who wish to work efficiently in quiet solitude.

As a result of its transparent glassed walls, the room has already earned the friendly sobriquet “EduQuarium”. Outside of those rare hours posted by the entrance, in which it is earmarked for examinations or class use, the new computer lab is open at all times for public use.
