PR Trends That Will Shape Your 2021 After Pandemic

Edward Bernays conceptualized two-way communication between brands and the public in his book Crystallizing Public Opinion. Did he imagine how this concept would evolve to create a seismic stir in PR trends and marketing methods? With traditional channels like radio, TV, and print media, the audience had limited means to share their opinions. Brands communicated their messages without hearing the public. Then came a slight shift with the internet becoming a new touchpoint for the audience in the...

Here’s how Southern Californians would spend $600 vs. $2,000 stimulus payments

Daniel Jester, his wife and his four young kids have established a new tradition during the coronavirus pandemic: hanging laundry on a series of clothes lines he strung up behind their Riverside home. It’s not a quest to return to simpler times. It’s a necessity after their dryer broke several months ago. And since Jester was laid off in April from his full-time job as a production director for a studio in Los Angeles, money has been too tight to buy a new one. If Congress and President Donald T...

The Internet Archive is Saving Classic Flash Animations & Games from Extinction: Explore Them Online

Flash is finally dead, and the world… does not mourn. Because the announcement of its end actually came three years ago, “like a guillotine in a crowded town square,” writes Rhett Jones at Gizmodo. It was a slow execution, but it was just. So useful in Web 1.0 days for making animations, games, and serious presentations, Flash had become a vulnerability, a viral carrier that couldn’t be patched fast enough to keep the hackers out. “Adobe’s Flash died many deaths, but we can truly throw some dir...

Thanksgiving winds end, sunshine ahead for weekend

Pleasant weather is coming this weekend to Southern California, forecasters say, following 24 hours of powerful winds that arrived on Thanksgiving.

The stoppages, sometimes lasting as long as three days, are plain acknowledgements from the companies that their equipment and their maintenance practices are unsafe, inadequate to protect individuals from harm and possible death.
