Daddy’s Hangout 2019 NCAA Tournament Prediction

It’s that time of year again and that’s March Madness of course. Honestly, this is my favorite time of the year because anything can happen, and it usually does. Coming into the tournament, Duke is the overwhelming favorite and deservedly so. Zion Williamson is the phenom that everyone talked about and then some. In the ACC tournament, he became the first freshman since Kevin Durant to average 30 points and 10 boards in a conference tournament. There are quite a few other teams that have a gre...

'We shouldn't be inviting bullies to our neighborhood': Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defends her criticism of Amazon HQ2 in surprise Queens appearance (AMZN)

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke out about criticism of the opposition she took to the deal New York struck for Amazon's HQ2. At a community-board meeting in Astoria, Queens, in New York, she answered a constituent's question with a lengthy response in which she emphasized that her problem was with the process of how the deal was made, its lack of transparency, and a lack of enforcement of how promises made by Amazon would be kept. Amazon abandoned its plans for HQ2 in New York City in Febr...

Six Women Who Are Revolutionizing the World of Fly Fishing

To the casual observer, the world of fly fishing may look like a totally male-dominated endeavor. Dig a little deeper, however, and you will inevitably discover the long-held and enduring legacy that female anglers have imprinted on the sport. It was Joan Wulff who changed the sport forever. In 1943, at the age of sixteen, she walked away with top honors in the national dry fly accuracy championship. From there she would go on to rack up twenty-one additional casting titles before ultimately win...

5 Unsung Word of Mouth Marketing Examples

Word of mouth marketing is — and has always been — the most effective (and cost-effective) way to generate customers and grow any business. But for a long time, word of mouth marketing has been mostly ignored in favor of outbound and inbound acquisition efforts, plus a big shift toward social media. The truth is that social media and word of mouth marketing are NOT THE SAME THING any more than toothpaste is the same as a toothpaste tube. Word of mouth is the toothpaste; social media is the tube...

Federal water proposal decimates pollution protections

Now is the brief window to join the battle against a Trump administration proposal to radically shrink the nation’s number of streams and wetlands protected by the Clean Water Act. This proposal is a gift to polluters that would threaten millions who depend on clean water and streams for drinking, farming, recreation, and economic development. It only takes seconds to register your opposition at protectsouthernwater.org. “This would be the biggest rollback in the history of the Clean Water Ac...

Inside Nunes’ Absurd Suit Against Trolls Acting As His ‘Mom’ And His ‘Cow’

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) got his feelings hurt on Twitter. That’s the gist of the arch-conservative’s lawsuit against Twitter, a Republican operative and two parody Twitter accounts, which was filed in Virginia late Monday. Nunes has positioned the suit as an effort to stand up to supposedly liberal social media platforms, companies that many conservatives — like the President’s son — agree are out to get far-right thinkers. From memes illustrating a “Human Centipede”-style relationship betwee...

Voting Rights Primer: Ross Declines To Answer Key Questions About Census Citizenship Question

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was grilled Thursday by the House Oversight Committee about his move to add a census citizenship question. Many of the explanations he gave about damning 2017 emails — emails that contradicted his official justification for adding the question — didn’t pass the smell test. He also refused to say whether he spoke to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions about adding the question, or to anyone else at the White House besides Steve Bannon. Ross was not the only admin...

Virginia Woolf & Friends Name Their Favorite and Least Favorite Writers in a Newly Unearthed 1923 Survey

Celebrity Twitter can be fun… sometimes…. Tabloids still have mass appeal, albeit mainly on the web. But for those who want to see the introverted and bookish caught off-guard and off the cuff, times are a little tough. Writers can more easily control their image than actors or pop stars, naturally. Most aren’t nearly as recognizable and subject to constant pop culture surveillance. Literary scandals rarely go beyond plagiarism or politics. Sometimes one might wish—as in the days of mean drunks...
