Arkansas, You Got a Problem - Contact Julie Roehm

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Tip to Wal-Mart: Arkansas, you got a problem.  We weren't the only ones who knew that Wal-Mart was going to face serious challenges  once the economy picked up, even a little.    After all its ambiance is non-Experience Economy.    Three cheers for Target.    Our heart breaks for the employees who, we have learned from the proliferation of lawsuits, allegedly are treated poorly.    Items are often out-of-stock.

Cloudy, With Lots of Green - There's No Place Like Home

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

I got caught in the highway traffic jams from hell in Arkansas. My journey from Tucson, Arizona to my new home in Ohio near the Pennsylvania border was, well, to use that cliché, the perfect storm. For example, I left my laptop and attache case at a Motel 6. Two hours out, the manager called me. Of course, I had to drive back. I got a flat. But, I knew it had been worth it when I was driving and the sky was overcast. Not sunny as usual as in AZ. And there were green trees. I am home.

The Judge and "the boys" - A Sad Tale of Corruption

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Eastern District of Arkansas Judge Kristine G. Baker, one might put it, "threw the book" at former judge O. Joseph Boekmann, Jr. He had been district judge for the First Judicial Circuit of AK. Although the prosecution sought a bit over 3 years, she sentenced him to 5. Over a 7 year period he used his position as judge to pressure young men to trade sexually related behavior in exchange for dismissing their cases.

Monicagate - Harvey Weinstein a Donor to Bill Clinton's Legal Defense Fund

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  In 1998, Bill Clinton's pal from Arkansas started a Legal Defense Fund for him. In terms of sex scandals, the Monica Lewinsky one seems so 20th century. Which it was.  It was to help with the expenses of defending himself for lying about having a sexual relationship with his intern. Matt Drudge broke that story about The Intern. His digital-only conservative news site is still highly influential. Among the donors to the fund had been Harvey Weinstein.

New York Post Puts It Out There: Why Can't Clintons Go Away

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

They will only find sanctuary in the Clinton Library in Arkansas. There's no more elephant in the room regarding the Clinton dynasty. The New York Post brought the issue to the surface. It posed the question: Why Can't Clintons Go Away. Here is the article. The answer is that they won't go away. And they will be able to hang on as long as there is oxygen. That is, media coverage, paid speaking engagements and hope invested in Chelsea as savior of liberalism.

65+ - The New Nomads

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Fort Smith, Arkansas. The BigUncertainty for the aging in relocating for a lower cost of living is this: That might not last.    For example, cities in southern Arizona had represented Paradise for retirees and the semi-retired. Then the middle class throughout California could no longer afford the state. They migrated to nearby states, including AZ. That drove up costs, especially rent.

The End of Human-to-Human Communications

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

in Arkansas.  Research by LinkAKC found that more than 80% of us humans depend on our dogs for our mental health needs.    And, in this era of extreme narcissism when we need someone, anyone to listen, more than 80% turn to our dogs. Here is the coverage of that survey. These findings should be no surprise. Human-to-human communications has been on the decline since the PC went mainstream. First professionals, then ordinary people became addicted to the screen.

Mixed in with the Snow, Some White Witchcraft

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Everything had gone wrong, ranging from having to drive back two hours to the hotel to retrieve the laptop and attache case I had left behind (they called me) to a flat tire at 10 PM on a highway in Arkansas. Seven white candles. Olive oil rubbed on them. Seven deep breaths. Prayer for help to Mary, Fatima and Michael. 15 minutes of meditation. Repeat for seven days. That was the white witchcraft spell I was instructed to perform. I had consulted a brandname psychic.

The New Nomads: Cheap Becomes the Holy Grail

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  What MarketWatch comes up with are: Bella Vista, Arkansas. A 73-year-old - J.R. contacts MarketWatch about a retirement destination.    The specifications include: Gun-friendly. Affordable (at least more so than California where J.R. is currently located). Moderate weather.  Silver City, New Mexico. Gainesville, Georgia. What MarketWatch doesn't tell J.R., though, is that what constitutes retirement paradise for now might not stay that way.

Talk - Listen for Emotional Content

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

That included a flat in Arkansas at 10 P.M. From the get-go, we speechwriters know that talk is about communicating with the audience's emotions. During pre-speech research, we ask the sponsoring organization what's in the hearts of the members of audience. What keeps them up at night?    What brings them inner peace and hope? If it's flat property values, we don't make the talk data-heavy with statistics and projected increases in residential real estate.

What America Reads…

I found this post from Brian Solis very interesting – a list of the top media outlets, by circulation, as well as the 25 most popular blogs in America, as compiled by BurrellesLuce. . Marshall McLuhan is famous for stating “the medium is the message&# and with the introduction of a newer medium (online, web) there is constant debate as to its effect on older mediums (print, broadcast).

Women in the U.S. Senate. 17 Strong…and Hopefully Growing

DeFinis Communications

It wasn’t until 1932 that a female graced the senate floor again, when Hattie Caraway of Arkansas became the first woman to win election to the Senate. Many bloggers (including myself) often lament the dismal number of women in corporate executive leadership positions. And while those figures are low, have you ever noticed how few women represent us in the United States senate?

The AAA Brand - Not What My Father Described to Me

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

That included a flat in Arkansas on my way from Arizona to OH. According to Nerd Wallet , maintaining a car puts us back, on average, more than $700 a month. Late last September, I decided to eliminate that fixed cost. Yes, I plowed the funds into my retirement account. The car I donated to Kars4Kids. And that was that. Since 2014, my two boutiques had operated totally on a telecommuting basis. Who needed four wheels?

Mamas, Don't Let Your Daughters Go To Bentonville

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Marketing powerhouse Julie Roehm arrived  at Bentonville, Arkansas with the 21st century equivalent of the counterculture flowers-in-her-hair.    She was hired by Wal-Mart to make it more competitive against emerging usptarts like Target.    Roehm was different, at least for Bentonville and Wal-Mart.    She had to be to turn around its prosaic branding.

Mindfulness  has been encouraged for stressed professionals. Research and experience show that the process of regular meditation can rewire the brain. However, research and experience also show that other tools can be as effective. One is running.

Vanity Fair - Message Bill/Hillary Send By Attending Inauguration

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Bill could raise more money for his presidential memory bank in Little Rock, Arkansas. The new New York Magazine in terms of sizing up what is, Vanity Fair focuses on Bill/Hillary at the Inauguration. The fact that they will be there, hammers Vanity Fair's Hilary Weaver, sends the message of bipartisan support for the conservative Trump Administration. That's almost required in a civilized society - even though The Donald's style breaks all the old-line rules of civility.

Famous Speech Friday: Michelle Obama's "Enough is Enough"

The Eloquent Woman

Well, Hillary has been a lawyer, a law professor, First Lady of Arkansas, First Lady of the United States, a U.S. This is the speech I've been waiting for, in more ways than one. In a year-plus of misogynistic insults and slurs aimed at our highly qualified first woman candidate for president, this is the speech I've been waiting for. In a month when we heard it was okay, even fun, to force yourself on women, uninvited, this is the speech I've been waiting for.
