Favorite Finds

November 23, 2016

It was a short week but one full of interesting reads. 

  • The Fake News Battle is On. Remember when The Onion and “Daily Show” were the only “fake news” outlets around? There has been a rise of fake news publications. Both Facebook and Google announced policies to restrict those outlets on their networks. 
  • Black Friday Madness. The holiday shopping season starts in earnest on Friday (or tomorrow, depending on who you ask.) While there are many bargains to be had – Patagonia is taking a different route to get attention. the company has pledged 100% of its Black Friday sales to environmental groups. So you can shop well and do good at the same time!
  • Showing Thanks. As we get ready to feast on Thanksgiving, this article ponders using thank you notes to enhance your communications career. 
  • Celebrating with Friends. How will you celebrate Turkey Day? Fabulous feast or quiet day at home? Family and football? Or fun run to start the day? If you find yourself in need of entertainment, this ranking of Friends Thanksgiving episodes will guide your holiday-themed Netflix pursuit. For me, Monica with a turkey on her head wins every time. 
As we head into Thanksgiving, we at LCWA are giving thanks for our great team, wonderful clients and the exciting projects we get to work on every day! Happy Thanksgiving!
