  • The art of publicity

    Professional publicists recommend press releases to deliver business news to the media for broadcast to potential customers.
    Publicity of this kind is free and can often be done by a business owner or someone who works for her company.
    If the media publish the story, the business stands to gain the goodwill of existing customers and attract new ones.
    The result can be increased sales at a cost of only the time it takes to write and distribute the release.
    But the average newsroom receives hundreds of e-mails and faxes every day, only a fraction of which are published.
    Competition for print space and airtime means press releases need to be creative, factual and informative.

  • Anthony Casino far from sure thing

    The Jemez casino at Anthony doesn’t look nearly as sure today as it did a month ago when the Bureau of Indian Affairs issued a very rosy draft environmental impact study of the proposal.
    Evidently the draft was prepared by the Jemez Pueblo for the BIA’s consideration. The negative side of the proposal was not mentioned. But now it is coming out.
    The Jemez Pueblo wants to build a casino at Anthony, south of Las Cruces to attract the large population in the El Paso and Juarez area, which don’t have casinos.
    Jemez has the misfortune of not being located on a major highway. So it has petitioned the BIA to allow it to locate a casino on land it would purchase almost 300 miles to the south.

  • Football: Owners, players will meet again Tuesday

    NEW YORK (AP) — Reaching a labor deal soon is hardly a done deal in the NFL.
    Team owners will be updated on recent negotiations with the players when they meet in Chicago on Tuesday. They’ve been told to prepare to stay an extra day because of the complexity of the proposals both sides have discussed in sessions over the last three weeks.
    Getting the required 24 of 32 owners to agree on anything can be difficult, let alone something as complex as a new collective bargaining agreement. And there has been enough pushback from owners that progress made recently might not lead to an agreement in the next few weeks.

  • Bible Answers 06-17-11

    “The president said recently, after the death of Osama bin Laden, that ‘justice has been done.’ From a biblical standpoint, was this truly justice or simply revenge?” —Terry

    Bear in mind that biblical ethical content is prescribed primarily for religious reasons; i.e., it is directed toward people who desire to be faithful to God and to reflect His purposes in the world.
    This means at least two things: legal codes and notions of justice appear differently at different periods of biblical history; and, “faith-based ethics” are more readily practiced by individuals than by groups — especially governments and nations.
