Canada has a come a very long way to being well known nation for many things such as its cold weather, northern geographic location, for its love of hockey, maple syrup, beer, the wild and nature. Ultimately it is known well worldwide for its multiculturalism and safe-haven like environment that attracts many immigrants over. For the nation turning 150, it is a huge deal especially how Canada transitioned through the years and making the nation it is today. For the birthday of the nation, a logo was created to represent the big milestone and many other concepts of Canada historically. One of the concepts was representing the foundation of Canada and how it was created from the first 4 provinces Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. Prior to the logo’s creation for the birthday, there was a contest to seek the logo for the important milestone. It motivated and tested many people to bring out their inner Canadian ego to create the best logo. These people had to be creative and put their knowledge about the history, geography, environment, culture of Canada to the test to fulfill the best logo made for the occasion.

The following four marketing mix elements will be implemented by Target to reach the non-financial and financial goals of Target.
This advertisement shows a baby sitting next to a Michelin tire and there is a text saying, “Michelin. Because so much is riding on your tires.” This advertisement is targeting car owners, more specifically parents, and it uses pathos to make them think emotionally about the safety of their children. They want the safest tires so there won’t be any harm to their children. The use of pathos is good in the ad, but the lack of other components like logos and ethos make the ad overall not as effective as it could be. This advertisement does a poor job; it lacks evidence completely that having Michelin’s tires will keep the passengers safe. There are also different types of fallacies in the ad such as scare tactics, non sequitur, and generalization.

The main problem they were trying to solve with Keurig is making it easy to make fresh coffee anywhere, whether it is in the office or at home.
