Help me find my TV commercial!

I appeared in a TV commercial (as a child) in the late 70's. I received some residuals for it showing on TV somewhere, but I never saw it myself. How can I track it down to view it?

Suppliers to the trade

What sorts of items do individuals commonly buy for personal use from "B2B" catalogs or suppliers that primarily sell to industrial or commercial customers, or to professionals in particular industries? "Tactical clothing" is an example that comes to mind. And what are the reasons?

Help me find an animated TV ad from this past summer.

Where can I find a (preferably downloadable) online copy of a recent TV commercial advertising a nuclear power company? I saw the ad all summer on CNN (United States) and I'm not sure if they're still running. The ad is a quirky animated piece showing the step-by-step process of nuclear energy, from mining to usage. It's presented in a 3D isometric perspective, similar to eboy/pixel art. I'd like to present it to a class I'm teaching, as the ad style liberally borrows from a Royksopp music video from a few years back. Thanks!

"Hate... you only hurt yourself." Boom!

Searching for info or video of a 1960s-1970s animated US-televised public service announcement against 'hate.' Angry man approaches viewer, head swells and three-pronged arrows whirl in his heart. Head swells and turns red and bursts as narrator says '[when you] hate, you only hurt yourself.' Possibly American Heart Association? Will donate $10 to charity chosen by first person to point me to correct online video. Many thanks.

Where can I find this BITTER BEER FACE commercial online?

Where can I find a digital copy of this beer commercial: It starts out with our protagonist (I think it's Joey Slotnick) walking, and a voiceover -- "You're at a party. You've got a cold beer, and a brand new shirt. You're . . . a tiger." Then, he takes a sip of the beer and his face shrivels up, and a couple of girls cringe. "Whoa! Bitter Beer Face!" Then, that's solved by drinking Keystone Light, and then the scene switches to noir; he's in a white tux with his hair slicked back, both of the girls on his arms, and he says in a David Niven accent, "Pack your bags -- we sail TONIGHT!"

Television commercial data wanted for cool research!

Does anybody know where I can get at a timeslot database for television commercials? (Preferably free or cheap). I'm not interested in viewing the commercials; I'm more interested in constructing bipartite co-occurrence networks between television programs. For example, I want to analyze what commercials are paired up with what other commercials (in that they air for the same shows), how many commercials share a given pair of programs, etc. -- and then making some inferences from the network.

Commercial with Modern Romans?

I'm trying to get my hands on a TV commercial from a few years ago for some financial or business company, with a vision of a modern Roman Empire. What I remember: Caesar steps out of an SPQR limousine, illuminated by flashbulbs and surrounded by black-suited, earpieced Praetorian guard, then an image of a Roman New York, with a statue of Caesar instead of Liberty. Any pointers on finding this commercial? Also, are there any fictional works that deal with the what-if subject of the Modern Roman Empire? Thanks!

Price Lists for Computer Services (Not Products) to Commercial Customers

Need to find price lists for computer services or tasks. This is proving tough to find via Google. More specifically, I am NOT looking for prices for products, such as software or hardware products, e.g., Windows XP or a Mac computer (for which I can find millions of price lists). Computer services would comprise, for example, help desk, software programming of any kind, network configuring, network administering, database tweaking, etc. [more inside]

Another soccer/football question

I've played soccer my whole life, compared to my European brethren I know very little about the sport (and its stars). Anyone know a good book about soccer/football that will allow me to speak with authority when someone references Michel Platini, Franz Beckenbauer, or even Cisse or Ronaldinho?

Also, if you've been watching the World Cup, you've probably seen this great commercial (different from the question below). Does anyone know what the song is?

How do you acquire a business line of credit using equity in a commercial property as collateral?

I have recently acquired a commercial property. I want to obtain a line of credit against the down payment I put on the property. Obviously, I have not done this in the past. But, I envision the transaction being similar to a home equity line of credit. Is there anyone out there that can point me to the right direction. FYI, the commercial property was acquired via a new LLC of which I own 100%.
