Let us make your weekend Entertainingly Educative. The words Lobby, Lobbying, Lobbyist and various other forms of this word (if any) have occurred in GRE quite often.
This weekend, I recommend a movie, based on lobbying. The movie is called "Thank You for Smoking"
It is a very humorous take on a serious issue of Smoking. It deals with "How the tobacco industry survives, in spite of public resentment." It also deals with the justification that the industry gives, for its existence.
I happened to stumble upon a debate on The New York Times, and it was about the importance of the texture of voice in a Digital Assistant.
