OMAHA WORLD-HERALD: Is Buffett bullish on newspapers or just having fun

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Warren Buffett just bought his hometown newspaper the OMAHA WORLD-HERALD, reports Keach Hagey in POLITICO.    So, the question we all have is: is Buffett bullish on the newspaper industry or just having some fun?    Two years ago, notes Hagey, he was a bear on the industry, claiming it had lost touch with readers. Buffett  Buffett told the media that the WORLD-HERALD delivers solid profits.

Gordon Brown Creates A New Beach

Can You Hear Me Up the Back?

With all that on his mind, it was kind of inevitable that he would re-name Omaha Beach: The speech itself was competent enough, though rather emotionless, like reading aloud from a history book rather than telling a story.

Kraft Heinz, WW, and Other Old-Line Players - That Dog Don't Hunt

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  That's why we wonder if Oracle of Omaha Warren Buffett and VSM (very smart woman) Oprah Winfrey are losing their understanding of capitalism. Sure, old-line players can turn themselves around, even in a globalized digital era. Just look at how The New York Times Company pulled itself out of a near-death experience. in general, when we look at one-time BigBrand companies from the 20th century we think:  That dog don't hunt.

An aha moment

Speak Schmeak

I love this series of commercials for Mutual of Omaha. They're about people's "moment of clarity. a defining moment where you gain real wisdom -- wisdom you can use to change your life." I like this concept both as a speaker and as an audience member. As a speaker, I look for aha moments to help me improve as a speaker and coach and to grow in my career. As an audience member, I look for aha moments provided by speakers with great insight and passion.

Warren Buffett - Seemingly So Over & So Not Liking That At All

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Combinations and permutations of Dr. Gloom/Doom and Black-Swan sage Nassim Nicholas Taleb have replaced the Oracle of Omaha.    Yeah, the era of Warren Buffett, at least in the financial media and maybe even in the equities market, seems to be over.    And Buffett doesn't seem to like that at all. Instead of going quietly into the night of overville, Buffett is popping up just about everywhere in the media, from CNBC to NEW YORK Magazine.

Newspaper Industry: Smart moves by The New York Times Co, questionable ones by Berkshire Hathaway

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  Has the Oracle of Omaha lost his touch?  In all the buzz, including in NEW YORK Magazine, about why Janet Robinson might have been canned, the media have been missing the good-news story about the progress The New York Times Company has been making in surviving.    Pieces of that story include the success of the paywall, paying off Carlos Slim's high-interest loan, and the creation of Ricochet which bundles advertising packages somewhat like Google does.

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).

Facial Expression

Humor Power

I did that when I lived in Omaha. What does public speaking, sign language for the deaf, dancing and singing have in common? When you receive training in any of these, you’ll be taught the importance of facial expression. Public speakers know the importance of showing what you mean through gestures and facial expression. Of course this is easier said than done. I am not a master of expressiveness. Because I need help, I stretched myself taking some classes out of my comfort zone.
