I remember bringing crayons and a coloring book on plane trips as a very young child. I recall one vacation to Canada when I brought my stuffed frog with me on the airplane. Froggy was a good travel companion and ...

The music stopped just after midnight Friday when State Supreme Court Justice Patrick McAllister certified new congressional district maps for New York after a few tense months of legal — and political — wrangling. For current electeds and their would-be challengers, it set off a chaotic weekend of scrambling for a swiftly diminishing number of chairs.

Unlike the deeply cynical and ...

First Days in a New Town

When I first graduated from college, I took a job teaching kindergarten in Providence, Rhode Island, my hometown. I taught for five years, then got married and soon became a stay-at-home mom. My husband, Al, was now getting out of the Navy and looking for his first job. That took us to New Jersey, followed by a stint in Massachusetts, and then on to New York. We luckily found paradise – ...

Tales of Ties and Tails

That headline-grabbing, delinquent supply chain has now wormed its wayward way into graduation ceremonies, of all things. In some cases, cases of caps and gowns and hoods (those sash-ish affairs that denote academic degree) are backlogged in production or in transit, leaving schools to scramble to ensure their alumni-in-waiting are decorously adorned, as tradition dictates.

Shortages of sashes ...

Drawing the Line Between News and Content Marketing is Key to Publisher Credibility and Success

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ — Publishers invest significant time and financial resources in building their audience. No one has the right to have their content placed in front of the audience you’ve built. Public relations firms and others say their content is newsworthy and they get paid a lot of money to try to make that case to publishers every day.

Drawing the line between news and ...
