1 Year Later: Communications in the Age of COVID-19

It’s been a year since COVID-19 turned the world upside down. Things once considered normal now seem odd, even outdated. Sitting in a conference room with co-workers. Dining in a crowded restaurant. Grocery shopping maskless. Shaking hands. We’re stressed out, Zoomed-out, burned out and drained by the whole pandemic. Teleworking has provided some obvious advantages — no commuting, no suiting up for work, more flexibility. But it’s also led to longer hours, increased angst, less camaraderie and m...

Why Language Matters When Communicating About COVID-19 Vaccinations

As the COVID-19 vaccine rollout continues across the country, the words that communicators use might influence public willingness to be vaccinated, a new study from nonprofit insurer EmblemHealth has found. In surveys, consumers generally understood that “vaccination” is a process intended to produce immunity to a disease or virus, whereas “immunizations” provide that protection, in both cases through the formation of antibodies. In medical contexts, EmblemHealth found, the public generally unde...

What Do Communicators Need to Know About Trust in 2021? Findings from the Edelman Trust Barometer

If it were another word “trust” might be considered a buzzword by now, but this is a word that is the very essence upon which the fabric of society is built upon.  There are some aspects of it that we take for granted, put into question, or underestimate. And never has the word been put into question, or tested, as much as it was in 2020 and continuing into this year.  Every year the Edelman Trust Barometer gives us a close up of the world’s current thoughts on trust, and the possible cons...

7 Rules for a New Era of Communications

During the pandemic, economic crisis, racial tensions and partisan arguments that have marked 2020, we have started communicating differently. We even have new words and phrases to reflect these times: We “doomscroll,” poring over bad headlines. We protect meetings from “Zoom-bombings” and give “elbow bumps.” We even write emails with more thought. A tossed-off phrase like “Hope you’re having a great summer” can sound tone-deaf to recipients who may be sick or have lost a loved one, or who may b...

From Regal to Get Real: Why Casual Communications Are Here to Stay

Twenty years ago, I was packing for England to begin a study abroad semester in Nottingham. This formative period exploring castles, village pubs and rock-walled rolling landscapes began my love affair with British television and film. The latest season of “The Crown” is no exception. In the midst of one episode, my husband Andrew pointed to the screen and asked, “Is any of this really necessary?” By this, I knew he meant the hallmarks of a monarchy: the pomp and circumstance, the formality that...

Two questions about cell phones

I was reading things about communication frequencies. I read cell phones are on 800 Mhz or thereabouts. 1. Does that mean cell phone frequencies are just regular frequencies like CB radio or shortwave frequencies except they're higher? Ex: About 27 Mhz for CB and 800 Mhz or so for cell phones, the same way the number 800 is higher than the number 27 but they're still regular numbers? 2. Are there people or entities other than government that eavesdrop on us?
