Every decade has its list of favorite and fantastic independent movies. As fans, we marvel at the filmmakers who seem to get optimum mileage out of their efforts.
We know the stories of these determined artists trying to make their films. They’ve become folklore — as much as the films themselves, their legacy of an insurmountable journey.
The phenomenon is that these maverick movies come in all genres. There may or may not be an elixir for the hits and misses. Yet, many have more gravitas than the luck of the draw and expanding a shoestring budget.
It’s easy to…
I’m convinced that the cockpit images and video of flying objects recorded by U.S. Navy pilots are most likely extra-terrestrial. The technology displayed by these mysterious crafts seems too advanced. Especially when one considers the 15-year plus timeline of these sightings. Wouldn’t the purported technology have been more incorporated by now?
Could they be classified aircraft designed by the U.S. military? Possible. The proximity to both of our coastlines does support this claim.
I doubt the theories of Russian or Chinese origin. The reason is that Russia and China are always looking for a military edge they could both obtain…
It’s an age-old question that faces each pro sport in every era: How in tune are the current athletes with the history, culture, and future of their sport?
We know the fans are all in. Rooting for their favorite teams and players. No matter the success or failure of those organizations. Fans are like shareholders, investing capital into the enterprise. Tickets, merchandise, and media packages. All while embracing the past, present, and future of the sport.
Are TV ratings down? Viewership sliding? Eyeballs at an all-time low? Since streaming, handheld devices, and online gambling have entered the fold, it’s difficult…
“The teams that practice the best, play the best.” — Bill Belichick
It is estimated that upwards of 40–50 million children are currently enrolled in youth sports around the USA. Now that the Covid restrictions are winding down, registration levels are returning to and even exceeding pre-pandemic levels.
It’s always encouraging to watch children join and engage in youth sports. The conundrum is trying to keep children interested while finding enough quality coaches to support these youth programs.
Despite these numbers, today’s youth sports are in crisis mode. 70% of kids quit youth sports by the age of 13. The…
I’ve been fed up lately and tired of rolling my eyes. It seems like I’m seeing more and more how-to articles on Medium. How to get curated, how to go viral, how to pick and trick the algorithm codes like a safecracker.
The second part of this has also gotten beneath my skin. In lieu of the masters, a different breed of expertise: the literary snobs. Telling us all what to write and how to write it — by their standards.
I don’t know who gave these types the right to be above it all. CTA’s among their cliques and…
There’s an old saying: Actions speak volumes. The axiom tells us to remain alert. It warns us of fake news, noise pollution, and hidden agendas. Don’t listen to this guy’s BS. Watch him.
I’m not a conspiracist per se, but Covid-19 never added up. Not for this layman. Is it possible that the coronavirus is a biological agent that escaped by accident? The death, harm, and long-term implications seem too nefarious for a strain of unknown influenza.
It still begs the question of its sinister influence. If this were a natural pathogen, wouldn’t we have discovered its source by now…
Fans of the New York Jets haven’t been this excited in years. Engaged with the team’s process and off-season directives. From the hiring of a new head coach, the NFL Draft, and the OTAs. There’s something brewing at One Jets Drive in Florham Park NJ, the Jets’ HQ, and training facility.
From the sportswriters, podcasts, and social media platforms, there’s a buzz that’s gaining traction and momentum. It feels and looks as if the Jets could be taking their first steps to be a prominent NFL franchise.
All of this on the heels of the 2020 NFL Season — one…
The New York Giants are a storied NFL franchise. Established in 1925, the Giants won their first league title in 1927. After three more league titles and 16 playoff appearances, the Giants began to slide from 1964 through 1980 — the longest postseason drought in team history.
After moving into Giants Stadium in 1976, the franchise had grown more dysfunctional. Owned and operated by Wellington Mara (a son of the team’s founder) and his nephew, Tim Mara.
By the late 70s, the Mara’s were no longer on speaking terms. In turn, the franchise continued to suffer and lag. Despite these…
ESPN, the number one sports network had it right all along. Entertainment and Sports Network.
Since we’re on the Entertainment side, allow me to unveil my Fab Four. The men who are old school, 24/7 ’cause they know nothing else. It’s in their DNA. These guys didn’t just bring it on Any Given Sunday. They lived it.
Forget Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Joe Montana, and Johnny Unitas. Those guys have nothing on my guys. Three of my four have won the Super Bowl and are in the Hall-of-Fame.
Here they are:
Years before Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs Kingdom had their first…
A go-to manual with practical and helpful advice. A primer to assist managers, human resource departments, and small business owners.
In my experience, I found it much more feasible, profitable, and productive to cultivate and please repetitive business than chasing after every type of customer.
Time after time, I watch small business owners incorporate schemes and strategies to compete for customers. You have to have principles, values, and a vision. Corporate integrity and identity. It’s easy to become desperate and tempting when things slow down. So and so is doing it this way, let’s try it. …
