3 Keys to Master Media Relations in Digital Age

3 Keys to Master Media Relations in Digital Age

In nightmares, CEOs and senior executives cringe about the companies they lead being devoured by the so-called Media Beast. These bad dreams are punctuated by banner headlines and viral stories exemplifying program or policy deficiencies, which are...

The art of communication is a bucket I relate to leadership rather than marketing and that is why I separate communication and journalism from branding and marketing. PR is the function stuck between the world of journalism and the world of marketing and so the question for any PR person is whether they recognize skills used by a communicator like David Axelrod or propaganda merchant like Edward Bernays. In this example we need an Axelrod or a George Lakoff to expose incredibly sophisticated propagandists like the "Father of PR" Bernays. Either way it is the road less travelled, I simply am not too interested in the mucky middle of the road marketer, this buzz brings insights that are found at the heart of these matters. What I read here shows me a communicator who has been on both sides of the communication divide, between the inward facing camera's and the firing line of communication and well honed media skills.

There should be no minimum wage. Here are 6 main effects each time wage minimum increases. One, Jobs are lost or hours are decreased. Two, some businesses would also close causing the lose of more jobs, this is most likely in restaurant. The third effect is young people will lose their entry-level job opportunity. These jobs teach youth important life lessons of teamwork, responsibility, and putting others before themselves. No one can get that better job until they get their first job. Four, the cost of all workers will have to go up. Five, fewer people will open business creating fewer jobs. Six, prices of everything will go up, as businesses pay the higher labor cost onto their consumers. This will result in two things. The consumers will either not pay the higher prices and the businesses will close, or the customers will pay the cost and just live at a lower lifestyle creating a drag on the overall economy. This may be hard for some people to understand and accept, but it's already a reality. For many business owners and workers in the cities and states that are raising their minimum wage. Without a minimum wage, labor cost decrease causes an opposite effect than above. Even if someone was pay less, with their cost of living at even lower percentage due to lower prices, they have a better lifestyle. Ask yourself this question, Would you rather have "Higher pay with higher prices and while working fewer hours" or "Full-time lower pay with much lower prices."

Deep in the heart of Switzerland鈥檚 Jura mountains lives anunassuming but extremely charismatic gentleman by the name of Philippe Dufour. It is quite possible, and highly probable that the name doesnot ring a bell. He has no need to advertise his...

Thanks Jena. As you may see from your time in Japan, there are quite a few parallels between the Swiss and Japanese. I have not had the pleasure of meeting Dufour, but I did catch up with another unique watchmaker and if you enjoyed this, you might enjoy: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dean-owen/exceptional-artisans-of-the-21st-century-martin-pauli

Javier, I particular love blueberries. But I tend to eat the entire box as soon as I buy them. No need for storing. I have, up to now, been washing them with water only but I will add the vinegar from now on. Great tip. Thx.
