Advertising watchdog tackles three companies for misleading ads

first_imgHome » News » Advertising watchdog tackles three companies for misleading ads previous nextRegulation & LawAdvertising watchdog tackles three companies for misleading adsDeveloper and two agents picked up for ASA code breachesNigel Lewis25th October 201601,088 Views Three different property firms including two agents and a developer have made it on to today’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) naughty step after complaints were made against them for publishing misleading ads.The most serious is against London-based agent Harper Brooks, whose website for a 98 unit, £18m new-homes development in Manchester called Grove House was investigated by the ASA following a complaint.Its website for the development, www.grovehousemanchester.co.uk, claimed to offer two-bedroom properties for rent from £650pcm but the complainant said no properties were available at that price, and that no “manned concierge desk” was available, as claimed.The ASA upheld the complaint but also heavily criticises Harper Brooks – which trades as Cambourne Properties Ltd – for not responding to the ASA’s enquiries quickly or adequately enough, which itself is a breach of the ASA’s code. When The Negotiator visited the website earlier today the advert had yet to be amended.The other complaints about misleading ads were less serious and were informally resolved. Hybrid agent YOPA was reported for failing to make it clear that VAT was not included within its ‘savings’ calculator, which shows potential clients how much less they might pay using YOPA compared to a traditional high street agent. YOPA has now amended the copy on its site.Lastly, there was a complaint against developer Springfield Properties in Glasgow for using the ‘Help to Buy’ scheme logo on property photos for developments where the scheme was not applicable. The company has agreed to amend its website, which it has now done.Harper Brooks misleading ads ASA Springfield Properties YOPA October 25, 2016Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

The genius of Dr Allinson

first_imgAre your staff lethargic? Are they difficult to motivate? The solution is simple: wean them off the workplace booze and cheese binges.Hints to shop assistants: “To get good work out of anyone he must be properly fed. An assistant suffering from indigestion, due to heavy meat food, cheese, and ale, cannot properly attend to business. Assistants have told me again and again that they do not have the energy to attend properly to their duties, and many have asked what they shall do to get more vigour as they fear dismissal. Parents will do well to enquire into the food served at large places of business before sending their sons and daughters there, or they may cause them to acquire the beginnings of disease which result in chronic illness or death.”Next week: life and deathlast_img read more

Sloan Foundation and Arcadia Fund Announce Funding for the Digital Public Library of America

first_img Read Full Story Washington, DC—The Sloan Foundation and Arcadia Fund today announced a major contribution for the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) in the form of combined $5 million in funding. The DPLA Steering Committee is leading the first concrete steps toward the realization of a large-scale digital public library that will make the cultural and scientific record available to all.Doron Weber, Vice President, Programs at the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and Peter Baldwin, Chair of the Donor Board at the Arcadia Fund, made the announcement at the DPLA plenary meeting today in Washington, DC. The funding—split equally between Sloan and Arcadia—will support an intense two-year grassroots process to build a realistic and detailed workplan for a national digital library, the development of a functional technical prototype, and targeted content digitization efforts. Sloan has previously committed one million dollars towards the establishment of a DPLA Secretariat at the Berkman Center and to support the legal workstream of the DPLA initiative by developing solutions to copyright law obstacles facing public digital library initiatives.“We are delighted to join with the Arcadia Fund in giving the DPLA a major boost towards its intensive, two year effort to create an open, distributed digital public library system,” said Weber. “This is a grand vision for a network of comprehensive online resources, tools, and services that will inform, educate, and empower everyone in the United States and eventually link us with the rest of the world. But we cannot do it alone and invite other funders to join us in this historic undertaking.”“What Carnegie did for public libraries a century ago, the DPLA could—if successful—accomplish for our era,” said Baldwin. “We are delighted to be part of launching that effort.”“We are excited to begin work on the DPLA as a full‐blown, hard‐driving initiative that promises to transform the world of libraries and the way that we meet the information needs of communities in America,” said John Palfrey, Chair of the DPLA Steering Committee. “We are deeply grateful to the Sloan Foundation and the Arcadia Fund for their support.”The DPLA is a collaborative effort that relies on inputs from a diverse range of stakeholders and community members.
