A less than glamorous Tokyo red carpet at lunch time

With the lights, the drinks and the elaborately bouffanted hosts and hostesses, it was likely all very different the night before. In the decidedly less than forgiving light of lunch time the following day, however, the glamour had most definitely long gone.

Sunset

I think Paris has the best sunsets in the Autumn which has just begun. I like the light early and late in the day as well. Here are a few sunsets I saw in just a couple of days. Looking out my window. I wish I had been outside for this one. The hot air ballon (tethered) in Parc Andre Citroën and the back of the Statue of liberty in a soft sunset. Turning around to see the Eiffel Tower. A boat heading toward the Eiffel Tower which is sparkling but very hard to capture in...

Que vivan las chingonas, les Latinx y las celebraciones en bike rides!

A scene from Wednesday’s Brown Pride Ride. (Photos: Maritza Arango/BikePortland) A story inspired by the community that got together for September’s Chingonas bike ride.

Mark Sanborn on why culture matters: “Culture is a corporate immune system that protects against variance, decline, or abandonment by identifying and combating threatening forces like toxic partners, disjointed processes, and bad decisions.” Source: The Intention Imperative II.

REVIEW: Smartfood Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Popcorn

What is Smartfood Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Popcorn? Smartfood welcomes fall with a limited time cinnamon sugar doughnut-flavored popcorn. How is it? I had a sinking suspicion that this popcorn was last year’s Christmas themed-Snickerdoodle Smartfood with a new name and an earlier release date — and I was 100% correct. This red and shiny bag of delight tastes identical to 2020’s green and shiny bag of delight, and I love it just as much as I loved it last year; if anything, it might be slight...

How “The Facebook Files” Could Impact Social Media Marketing

The Fallout from “The Facebook Files” Has Begun. What Does This Mean for Brands? The recent announcement that Instagram has stopped the development of Instagram Kids (as we recommended back in March) was not some isolated incident brought about by spontaneous internal soul searching. Rather it appears to be the first chip to fall from the bombshell “Facebook Files” series released two weeks prior by the Wall Street Journal. This likely won’t be the last reaction we see to the e...
