  • Media impact on children and teens

    This may not surprise most people: children and teenagers in the U.S. spend more time engaged with various forms of media than any other single activity except sleeping.
    A recent study of 2,000 youth aged eight to 18, found that they spend on average seven hours with media each day. The “media” referred to includes TV, movies, video and computer games, the Internet, music lyrics and videos, magazines, books, advertisements and, yes, even the newspaper you hold in your hand.

  • So, what are your thoughts?

    Welcome to interactive media, albeit a bit old school.
    Earlier this week, I was at a meeting where we discussed what ties you to your school. The question isn’t rhetorical. I really want to know.
    I don’t care if it was when you were in school or now that your kids or grandkids are in school, what is it that makes you fond of the place?
    I really want the answer and will give you several ways to tell me. I would also like to know if you don’t have that tie or fondness and what caused it to become that way?
    I don’t want to tell you my thoughts, but I’m interested to know if they are similar.

  • Lady Gaga was 'Born This Way' and endured

    The stadium is dark, with the exception of the glow of phones and cameras ready to take her picture. The crowd is hushed with anticipation and excitement. Then, the beats echo over the speakers and the crowd starts screaming. Lights start to flash and huge screens flicker on. She steps out onto stage and her powerful, phenomenal, perfect voice rings around the stadium. The crowd is illuminated and thousands of people are jumping up and down in outrageous costumes, all inspired by her.
    That’s right, Lady Gaga is performing at Madison Square Garden. Her fans, including myself, were able to see it on television.

  • Hair health is vital for the right look

    The frizz, the tangles and the split ends. Ugh. Hair can really be a mess.
    A bad hair day can be one of the worst days ever and looking like a lion’s mane on a special occasion is no fun. There is a way to fix frizz, tame tangles, and save split ends, though.
    First of all, hair must always be kept healthy. Split ends must be cut off by a hairdresser when they emerge. Whatever you do, do not pull the split end apart.
    Do not constantly dye your hair different colors. It may seem fun when you are a teenager, but it leaves your hair looking unhealthy after a few years, especially as you get older. Straightening your hair every day or every other day dries it out and causes split ends.
