Flint MI – Ad Spots on Surveillance Cameras

a story crossed my RSS Feed on Flint, Michigan’s plan to sell advertising space on Surveillance Cameras. As out-of-place as it may seem, you have to give credit to the supplier and city officials efforts to off-set the cost of a project neither have the money to deploy.

$30,000 is the asking price. Don’t be discouraged they also have addressed a lower-rate scale for the more budget minded and thinking of adding a PayPal link to a web page for donations.

Advertising the Surveillance box does throw a twist to be looked at from a different angle. If a intersection has a McDonald’s, WaMU bank, & BP Gas station on the corner, would that influence the “placement” of such units? We’re talking Tax Breaks here….(no-one has signed on as of yet) One location on main street, where the city parades and festivals gather, could fetch this type of fee?

Is sponsorship limited to only “local” merchants? Flint’s sister city, Changchun China may want a camera?

Finding creative ways to pay for public services has always been a challenge. With Ad spots, you have to give some kind of ROI, associated with sponsoring cameras – that has got to be a world class sales pitch.

Im a very “devoted” christian and I guess I have a couple questions on my mind..
I’ve been thinking a lot about dating.. but im not sure where to get going.
My cousins have been telling me christian dating is the way to go.. so I’ve done a little research on Christian Single Events and found some stuff on google
Would be awesome to hear your input.

To many times we are filled with false promises of “fairy tail” relations that manifest from simple beginnings. There is a big difference between, dating (enjoying one’s companionship) and building, sharing a relationship.

The challenge of trying something new should be experienced, remember, humans are the only species on this planet that “cannot” live by itself. The least you may accomplish is securing a place of new friends. The cause alone may reveal a course of action that might lead to the result you seek….careful what you wish for…..

The explosion of “Dating” Services has now become a very competitive business. Almost to the point they have to promise some type of result. Even with their filtering service some do “slip” through.

Christian Singles – pretty much establishes the first criteria, they have some belief system. So you have a starting point to build upon.

Having a seeking spirit, to reach out too others is a natural extension of being human. It’s no fun being alone.
