By web gangsta | Published:

We all grew up on Looney Toons, Tom & Jerry, Saturday morning cartoons – and old amusement park owners saying that they would have gotten away with it, if it weren’t for those meddling kids!

And if you were to sit down and watch those classic cartoons today – you’d see a rash of violence bestowed upon the characters to each other: faces blown off, coyotes plummeting to their deaths, anvils falling from the sky.

Hunters on a mission to kill. Coyotes on a mission to kill. Yellow parakeets on a mission to kill. Giant roosters on a mission to torture a dog. Continue reading IT’S TRUE: ANIMATED CHILDREN’S FILMS ARE MORE VIOLENT THAN FILMS FOR ADULTS

A company lives and dies by its reputation.

Some companies never recover from a problem, while others openly address the issue at hand and do everything they can to win back customers. Coca-Cola has done it, others have as well.

It’s easy when you’re perennially at the top of the list of MOST REPUTABLE COMPANIES, like Amazon, Coca-Cola, Apple, and Disney tend to find themselves every year — but it’s those struggling at the bottom of the list that really have a rough time at it.

Top 10 Happiest Places to Work


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has said it before and we’ll say it again: if you’re not happy at work, then you need to find a new opportunity.

Of course, there are always exceptions to this rule.

If you know that what you’re doing now is merely temporary, then no need to rock the boat and jump ship before you’re ready to do so. And there are different ways to measure happiness – sometimes the job you’re doing now may not be making you happy per se, but it allows you to do other things that do.  Like that overnight shift may not be ideal, but it frees up your daytime hours to spend time with the kids or attend school to be able to advance to the next career choice.

Issues with Disney’s new GAC disability pass program


By web gangsta | Published:

By now, you’ve likely heard about the alleged scam being run by some enterprising business-oriented folks who would use their disability to a tourist advantage by renting out their services — and ability to go straight to the front of the line — as a Disney tour guide to rich families.

It’s been a long common “trick”, where anyone with a wheelchair could go to the handicap entrance and board a ride at a Disney park immediately.  But due to those aforementioned business transactions, because of the actions of a few Disney had to make dramatic changes to their policies and procedures.

By web gangsta | Published:

Building a global brand is the ultimate goal of any major business.

It’s one thing to be successful on a local or hyperlocal level.  It’s quite another feat to take that same local presence and expand that to a larger stage.  Many have succeeded, but even more have failed at doing so.
