John Schwartz reports for the NY Times on an interesting bit of linguistic trivia concerning the history of space exploration: So which is it? How do you pronounce Gemini? In “First Man,” the new film about the Neil Armstrong and the moon landing, astronauts and NASA officials say “GEM-uh-knee.” But the first pronunciation in the Webster’s New World College Dictionary Fifth Edition, the standard work used by The New York Times to settle such matters, the first pronunciation is GEM-uh-neye,” whic...

NHL Rumors: Maple Leafs, Predators, Hot Seat Coaches, More

In today’s rumor rundown, the Toronto Maple Leafs have sent the message to William Nylander that they want him to stay, but left it up to him to make the next move.

Yamamoto: He’s Small, Tries Hard, and Has an Opportunity

Kailer Yamamoto scored his first goal of the season Thursday night against the Boston Bruins. It was also his first-ever NHL goal. While he’d proven himself capable in two preseason campaigns, there was no official tally on his NHL resume and it was good to see a young kid, who is small and tries hard, finally be rewarded. Yamamoto, he’s small and tries hard. It’s a phrase that sounds oversimplified when you say it out loud. That said, “tries hard” is the description of a player the Edmonton Oil...

Unlocking value with audio and DBW 2018

I haven't attended or presented at a major publishing event since TOC ceased operation in 2013. Over these past five years I've returned to my roots on a couple of fronts.

For the past couple of years though, I've been blessed to work with and lead a team of publishing professionals, similar to the vari...

NHL Prospect Watch: Boston University vs. Minnesota State

Last weekend’s series between Minnesota State and Boston University was a contrast in styles and philosophies. BU is a younger team that relies on big name prospects with high-end skill. They dressed 11 NHL Draft picks in the two-game series, four of which were selected in the first round. 11 of their players started their college careers as 18-year-old true freshman, including seven alumni of the US NTDP program. By contrast, Minnesota State is a much older team by necessity. The last ti...

Three Ways to Foster Community at Work

In college, I was one of those people that was always doing something with friends. I was in volunteer organizations. I was an RA and planned events for my residents. I would study at the library in small groups. In short, as a young adult, I thrived being in community with other people. I didn’t realize then that this lifestyle of working well with others and valuing friendship would impact my professional life after graduation. I met my future husband while in college (he lived in Nashville an...

Coyotes Weekly: Will Someone Please Score?

“Well, at least we can’t get off to a worse start this year than we did last season.” This was a common refrain amongst Arizona Coyotes fans during the lead-up to the 2018-19 season. Of course, the ‘Yotes went winless in their first 11 games last year before recording an overtime victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on the penultimate game of October 2017. It would indeed be pretty difficult to reach that level of ineptitude again this season. However, this year’s squad is threatening to c...
