On my drive into work last Friday I was listening to KTAR and they mentioned that swimmer Ryan Lochte had issued an apology via Instagram and Twitter, for “confusing”the details of being robbed in Rio during the Olympics. I’m not really concerned about the fact that he “confused” the details of what happened but I […]

A Seniors’ View of the Newsroom

A Seniors’ View of the Newsroom

 |  June 15, 2016

I was having dinner with my folks over the weekend and casually asked them what they had planned for the week.

Thanks to Facebook, we get a daily reminder of our friends’ upcoming birthdays. When I glanced at the list late last week I realized I have quite a few friends in the communications industries whose birthdays fall under the Libra astrological sign (including three of us here at HMA).

When Sports Players “Meltdown”

 |  Jan 23, 2013

I was watching the Australian Open last night and I all I can say is that I am highly disappointed. In what started out as a great match between Serena Williams and Sloane Stephens quickly turned into something that Serena should be ashamed of.
