If you are diagnosed with Internet addiction (and social media addiction is synonymous for that matter) you can now join a voluntary, 10-day in-patient treatment program supposed to cure your brain – not that I believe in miracles, but it doesn’t hurt to try, especially if you believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the like. Please note that you are more likely to develop Internet and social media addiction if you are an intelligent biped. In other words, if you are dumb as a brick, you don’t need to worry. The real question is, if you are dumb,... Read More >

International, inter-governmental and business communications especially, are so important for the economies of the EU and worldwide to emerge from recession. A recent apparent mis-communication in between low cost air carrier Ryanair, and the Turismo de Portugal would seem a perfect example of barriers to business.

It doesn't take much these days to make a story it seems, At least this is true for those willing to consume their bait fish hook-line-and-sinker, just because you're a potential mayor or Business Insider. Speaking of Business Insider, Deputy Editor Julie Zeveloff was flown off to misty Mobile the other day just so a would-be mayor could emboss a political campaign - oh, but ostensibly too, to polish the tarnish off the great southern city's name!

Google Turns Googlo for International Women’s Day

Google's International Women Day doodle.

To make women all over the planet take note of a colorful logo designed to honor them on their special day, Google took a bold step, rebranding as Googlo for a day. The logo features the universal female symbol for letter “G” – no surprise here – while the second “O” and last “E” are surprisingly similar – two red circles. In all fairness, this is a stylized logo. However, the last letter makes us sheep believe that the designer was either drunk with love, or in a rush. Regardless what reasons are behind this relatively puzzling rebranding, the logo... Read More >

My hero is, and always shall be the indefinable Dr. Seus. There, I admitted it. The venerable "smarty cat" turns 107 on Wednesday, if you can believe it. Seussville has already announced a plethora of activities aimed at celebrating our multi-colored, and faceted friend too. My only question is; "When are my fans going to create Sheepville? Okay, I cannot help but be jealous. I know, you are picturing the sheep here looking up at those grapes and muttering; "They must be sour, or else I would have already devoured, but sour - sour - they are, it's true." Yeah,...

Starbucks Girl Scouts

As you probably already know, Starbucks has recently announced a bold branding move - eliminating the words Starbucks coffee from their "iconic" two-tailed starry-crowned kinky mermaid. Naturally, this unexpected marketing/branding/PR move puzzled many media illuminates. Fortunately, we have obtained an exclusive statement from Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, explaining more than enough: "We could enumerate many goof reasons for the change, one of which many experts have already guessed: 2010 was a bad sales year for Starbucks. But coffee is again hot this season, so no worries there. However, we have received an offer we couldn't refuse from Hilo Fish, which... Read More >

Power to the people, my beloved quadrupeds. From all the strange things I was blessed to report upon, this one takes the cake. Elizabeth Robinson, founder of a company with a very resonant name - VolumePR - has decided to explore new pastures. But instead of running to peaceful fields, the PR virtuoso decided on marijuana crops. In the true spirit of modern PR and communications, she opened a Grow Room (Communications) where she tenders to companies in the field of medical marijuana. Grow Room is a subsidiary of VolumePR, with only three employees, two of which are MMJ patients.... Read More >

Michael Sitrick Tiger Woods

The news today has nothing to do with Tiger Woods, except that he is mixed in the soup by association. TMZ just sent us a report concerning the company that manages the quadruped, and the famous Swiss tennis player Roger Federer. IMG is being sued by a printing company, which allegedly served as a gambling go-between and even provided escorts for the owner of IMG, Theodore Forstmann. TMZ obtained exclusive information from an L.A. County Superior Court that Agate Printing, Inc. claims it made millions of dollars in bets on Forstmann's behalf, and that Forstmann covered some of his losses... Read More >
