Advertising targeting students will generate revenue for schools. Advertisers include local universities and trade schools.BURBANK -- If all goes as planned, the entrance halls to Burbank and John Burroughs high schools will soon be graced with the addition of a big-screen TV. But rather than sit-coms or soap operas, the pair of 52-inch plasma screens would help groups on campus fundraise through paid advertisements. "This was something innovative and different," John Burroughs Principal Emilio Urioste said.

Advertisements will soon be plastered onto Burbank's 28 buses as the city looks for untapped sources of revenue to recover costs for its cash-strapped transit programs. The City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved a yearlong agreement - which can be terminated at any time - with mobile-advertising firm Titan Outdoors to sell, place and maintain advertisements inside and wrapped around the city's buses. The program is expected to generate between $24,000 and $144,000 a year, or half of the profits the firm rakes in from the advertisements, city officials said.

Burbank is moving to ban advertising vehicles from city streets just months after brightly colored vans flaunting massage and topless maid services peeved local residents and business owners. The City Council on Tuesday directed officials to draft an ordinance banning vehicles whose primary purpose is advertising from public streets. If it's successful, Burbank could join Glendale, Pasadena, Los Angeles and other cities in kicking the roving ads off city streets. The ad vans that sparked the initial complaints are no longer parked on city streets, nor did they try to get a permit, Burbank officials reported Tuesday.

The roving advertising vans that were kicked out of Los Angeles and into Burbank may have to hit the road once again. The Burbank City Council on Tuesday is scheduled to consider amending the city's municipal code to ban mobile advertising vehicles. State law allows cities to regulate the vehicles provided their primary purpose is advertising. The issue came to the forefront last month after brightly colored vans advertising topless maid services for $99 and hour-long Thai massages for $40 infiltrated Burbank streets, peeving local residents.

In an attempt to generate extra revenue for Burbank's cash-strapped transit programs, the City Council has signed off on a plan to plaster buses with advertisements. The City Council last week directed officials to draft a two-year contract with mobile advertising services firm Titan Outdoors, just weeks after voting to pursue a ban on mobile advertising vehicles, which in recent months came in the form of brightly colored roving vans that were advertising topless maid and massage services.

The argument between believers and atheists has found a new and very public forum in recent years - billboards. Pro- and anti-religion advertisements and messages have been appearing on the sides of buses in places as diverse as London and Dallas, on billboards in Australia and California, and now in New York's Times Square. Paid for by the evangelical group Answers In Genesis, an electronic billboard there displays what the New York Times describes as “a friendly jab” at atheists: “To all of our atheist friends: Thank God you're wrong.” The battle of the billboards has also been used provocatively, as when an atheist group paid to have the message, “You Know it's a Myth: This Season Celebrate Reason,” about Christmas, put above the Lincoln Tunnel in New York.
