BACK TO SCHOOL
Before our weekly Monday morning team meeting, I walked into a local McDonald’s to grab a cup of coffee. At a time of day that is typically busy for the fast-food restaurant, I was greeted by no other customers and, even more strangely, no workers at the counter.
Almost every business now uses social media in some capacity. But just because “everybody is doing it” certainly doesn’t mean that everybody is doing it well.
First off, what the heck is a cookie anyway? No, they’re not the chocolate chip-filled pieces of goodness your grandma made you. (Well, they actually are, but cookies are something else, too.)
I’ve adopted Pittsburgh’s North Side as my second home over the past year since EM-Media opened up its James Street office. One of the things I love most about our neighborhood is its eclectic style, and one of the biggest contributors to that style is the annual Deutschtown Music Festival, which will take place this year July 13-14.
When you think of traditional media, what do you think of? Television, radio, newspaper, and billboards, right?
We’re excited to share that we have won two Telly Awards for our work with personal injury firm Gold, Khourey & Turak and Mid-East Ohio Regional Council (MEORC). The Telly Awards were created in 1979 to showcase “excellence in local, regional and cable television commercials with non-broadcast video and television programming added soon after,” according to their website.
More than a week has come and passed since my May 30 post about the poor decision making by the Pittsburgh Pirates ball club. At that time, I wrote that our team had won only 2 of its last 11 games. Since then, we have only won 5 of our last 20. That statement about the organization’s questionable decision making has proven more and more credible within the past several days.
Having been a season ticket holder for longer than many Pittsburgh Pirate fans have been alive, I’m invested in this team. I sometimes question whether or not the passion that I carry for the club is reciprocated by the organization.
