The Final and Official Iteration of My Capstone

Well…. here it is folks! The final edition of my Capstone. After an intense 10 weeks of writing and then 4 weeks prior of writing the proposal, it is complete. Here is an excerpt from the paper – Abstract Social media and inbound marketing have been on the receiving end of much hype in the past five years. Due to the rapid growth of Internet usage, companies find themselves needing to stay current and develop new marketing tactics. This is especially true for companies whose product is the content they deliver electronically......

Family in all it’s glory

This past long weekend I visited my aunt, uncle, cousins, and grandmother in Kansas with my family. We wanted to squeeze a visit in to my grandmother before both my brother and I go off on our adventures. It was an incredible visit. I enjoyed seeing the younger cousins growing up and, as my aunt pointed out with the older ones, the age difference doesn’t see quite so huge as we get older (though 30 and 15 are still quite different!). Seeing grandma was heart-wrenching in the best way possible. In fact,......

The Early 1900’s in Color

I found this post just recently. My love of history is overwhelming but as I told a friend today, I always had an issue picturing the past in color. With all the images being in black and white, my young brain couldn’t fill in the colors. Well dear French-Jewish capitalist Albert Khan did that for me! He set out to capture images of the world. Ending up in 1929, at the time of the stock market crash with 180,000 meters of black and white film and 72,000 autochrome plates of color pictures......

Feeling Financially Nauseous

I just had to spend a lot of money… a lot of money I don’t totally have right now. I just bought my plane ticket to Israel. All $1400 of it. I feel like for $1400, I should get a sleeping pod with my own television and a maid… That was a lot of money. Add into that, that I am leaving my job to pursue more education overseas and well, I am having financial nausea. But there is a bright side here… I have found that my community, the people I......

So. Excited. Mad Men, Season 4 starts Sunday!

I just can’t wait. I love the time period. I love the clothes. I love the ad agency. I love it all! I am a total Maddict! AdAge had a great article about the new season. A nice little preview that does NOTHING to satiate my curiosity, intentionally. Which just makes me more curious. AHH! Read it here – ‘Mad Men’ Returns, Smoke Clears, and Things Still Aren’t What They Seem (Maybe) He has some seriously astute comments about the deconstruction at the end of season 3 and the reconstruction that may......

How do you Jew? What is your #ish?

In my family, we like to play with words. My dad is the undefeated MASTER of this. Alliteration, puns, obscure words, rhetorical fun, but of late, his favorite is to turn nouns into verbs. How do you Jew? How are you Jewing? Just Jew it! The Jewish Federation, nationwide, has started a campaign to ask: “What is your #ish?” Essentially, how are you Jewing in your life? What make you Jew#ish? So? What makes you Jew#ish? Tell me and tweet it with the hastag #ish or go to the Federation website and......

The Saddest Day in Jewish History

Today marks the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. It is Tisha B’Av. Tisha B’Av means literally, the 9th (tisha) day of the month of Av. There were many tragedies that happened on this day in Jewish history and commemorate them and remember the sadness, today is a fasting day. We began fasting last night around 8:20 (well, that is Denver time) and the fast will end 25 hours later at 9pm (again, Denver time). The fast of Tisha B’Av commemorates 5 tragedies that befell the Jewish people on that date: Moses......
