It used to be that shopping was a fairly simple activity - you went to the supermarket, picked up what you needed, paid for it and left. But in recent years it's become a lot more complicated. Supermarkets in the UK now sell much more than food: you can get your insurance there, pay bills and a variety of other services. In many ways they've become a one-stop shop for lots of life's daily chores. 

You can also get 'rewards' - join up and get a 'loyalty card' and every time you shop you'll get points and discounts. And just when you thought supermarkets couldn't offer anything else, they turned into mini-banks, offering you cash when you shop. Go into any UK supermarket, pay for your shopping, and you're more than likely to be asked if you want 'any cashback with that?'

The Bradley Effect :
Bradley 指從前洛杉磯市長 Tom Bradley (1917-1998), 他是非裔美人 (African-American), 但聲望很高, 所以 Bradley 做過市長後, 想更上一層樓, 遂在 1982 年競選加州州長。事前的民調說 Bradley 穩操勝算, 而結果竟是落敗, 那表示民調有問題, 最大的問題出在接受民調的人沒有說實話, 而這些撒謊者又全是白人, 這即是所謂 Bradley effect。
