Kaylie Snow has always been the fun, flirty, pretty sister. Now her burgeoning baby bump, hormone-infused emotions, and faltering singing career are sending her into an unexpected identity crisis. Watching her older sister, Danica, glide through a major career change and a new relationship with the grace of a ballerina, Kaylie's insecurities rise to the forefront - and her relationship with fiancé Chaz Crew is caught in the crossfire. Chaz Crew has everything he's ever wanted: a lovely fiancée, a baby on the way, and soon the film festival he owns will host its biggest event ever. When he's called away to woo the festival's largest sponsor - and the lover he's never admitted to having - secrets from his past turn his new life upside down. With her baby shower around the corner and her fiancé's big event looming, the pressure is on for Kaylie to pull herself together - and for Chaz to right his wrongs. In a few short weeks, the couple who had it all figured out will learn things about life and love that may change their minds - and their hearts. Sisters in Bloom is part of the Love in Bloom series.

The first significant book on the history and impact of the ADA - the "eyes on the prize" moment for disability rights. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the widest-ranging and most comprehensive piece of civil rights legislation ever passed in the United States, and it has become the model for disability-based laws around the world. Yet the surprising story behind how the bill came to be is little known. In this riveting account, acclaimed disability scholar Lennard J. Davis delivers the first behind-the-scenes and on-the-ground narrative of how a band of leftist Berkeley hippies managed to make an alliance with upper-crust, conservative Republicans to bring about a truly bipartisan bill. Based on extensive interviews with all the major players involved, including legislators and activists, Davis recreates the dramatic tension of a story that is anything but a dry account of bills and speeches. Rather, it's filled with one indefatigable character after another, culminating in explosive moments when the hidden army of the disability community stages scenes like the iconic Capitol Crawl or an event some describe as "deaf Selma", when students stormed Gallaudet University demanding a "deaf president now!" From inside the offices of newly formed disability groups to secret breakfast meetings surreptitiously held outside the White House grounds, here we meet countless unsung characters, including political heavyweights and disability advocates on the front lines. "You want to fight?" an angered Ted Kennedy would shout in an upstairs room at the Capitol while negotiating the final details of the ADA. Congressman Tony Coelho, whose parents once thought him to be possessed by the devil because of his epilepsy, later became the bill's primary sponsor. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Stillwell.

In the United States, National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) is the largest spectator sport, has the largest event attendance, and is the most popular form of automobile racing. NASCAR generates over $2 billion per year in revenue and corporate sponsors provide significant financial investments to the racing teams. According to NASCAR s President, Mike Helton, NASCAR is a way of life It becomes a lifestyle because the fans are so loyal to whoever their favorite driver and team are. Fans are also fiercely loyal to the sponsoring companies of their favorite driver or team, and this devotion has been documented consistently in the sport sponsorship literature. NASCAR sponsors hope that their financial support of the sport will generate the same level of loyalty toward their brands from the fans, and this loyalty will result in increased revenue generation. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine if personality fit between NASCAR drivers and their major sponsors affected the sponsorship outcomes of consumer attitudes toward the sponsor, attitudes toward the brand, and purchase intentions during a NASCAR event.
Sports sponsoring has become one of the most used marketing tools for corporations. Due to branch exclusivity clauses and limited high profile sponsor opportunities, a practice named ambush marketing emerged. Ambush marketing refers to the non-sponsor's attempt to create a connection with an event to benefit from its media attention and image. As a result, official sponsors and market researchers are trying to find an effective remedy to diminish the effects of ambush marketing. This study explores the effects of humorous and educational anti ambush campaigns as well as the influence of the communicator of these messages, to determine which approach is most effective in reducing the effects of ambush advertisement, while improving the brand image of the official sponsor.

The Booz Allen Classic was a regular golf tournament on the PGA Tour from 1968 to 2006.Perhaps more so than any other "regular" PGA Tour stop, the event wandered about, not just from course to course within a given metropolitan area, but along the East Coast. Originally known as the Kemper Open, the inaugural event was played in 1968 at Pleasant Valley Country Club in Sutton, Massachusetts, before moving to the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina the following year, where it stayed through 1979. (The Wachovia Championship is now held in Charlotte.) The event moved to Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland in 1980. In 1987, the tournament moved to the TPC at Avenel course in neighboring Potomac, Maryland. The "Kemper" name was dropped after the 2002 tournament, which then became the "FBR Capital Open" for a single year in 2003. Booz Allen Hamilton was the main sponsor of the tournament from 2004-06. The event returned to Congressional for a year in 2005 to accommodate renovations at Avenel.
