Tiger Wins Masters!

The last time Tiger Woods had won a Major, George W. Bush was the U.S. president. This year’s low amateur at the Masters, Viktor Hovland, was 10 years old at the time. All of which is to say that it’s been nearly a decade and a half since Woods triumphed on golf’s biggest stage. But now Tiger is back, having carded a 13 under to win the 2019 Masters at the age of 43, completing a career comeback which at times seemed impossible. Woods went into the last day of the tournament trailing reigning British Open champion Francesco Molinari by two strokes, and history seemed against Woods, who had never won a Major after trailing through three rounds. Yet Woods battled through a tumultuous final round in which the lead changed multiple times, eventually emerging with a two stroke lead heading into the final two holes. Runner-up Brooks Koepka had…

Paine Field Opens for Commercial Flights

The opening of Paine Field Airport in Everett, Washington may have been delayed by the recent government shutdown but there is little to be annoyed or stressed about when you enter this impressively small airport. Paine Field has been designed much like a boutique hotel to offer a unique and appealing experience when you make your way to the airport for any of its 18 daily scheduled flights. You may enjoy the possibilities offered by air travel, but do any of you really enjoy the experience of navigating the large airports we spend our time in as we travel the world? The point of Everett Field is to create an airport where the passenger is placed at the heart of the travel experience.

The Shock & Awe Of PR Stunting

A PR Nightmare or The Golden Goose?. . . The Shock & Awe of PR Stunting. A company's relationship with the public decides its customer base, and while that can decrease or multiply with time, a good way to kick it forward is to increase their public relations in a meaningful way. Food drives for the poor, raffles for hospital drives, or being all the angels on a Christmas tree are great but often slow, rarely generating the buzz to get people talking. And since everyone knows the best advertisement on Earth is word of mouth, they decided to generate that extra buzz by pulling off an entirely unexpected stunt. Stunts are defined as displaying spectacular skill and daring, or something unusual done to attract attention. They exist to make the news, no matter how large or small the impact happens to be, and make those performing into household names.…

Seattle's Snow is Finally Melting

Seattle's Snow is finally melting. . . but its only the beginning of more problems. For the second Tuesday in a row, snow hit Seattle. Governor Inslee was correct in ordering a state of emergency late last week in expectation of the weather severity. The snow of February 12th was wet and heavy, causing power outages and damage to cars and homes from collapsing tree limbs. Schools continued to be closed and road conditions continued to be dangerous. At least threats, if not the reality of flooding and landslides loom in the minds of residents. This is the snowiest month Seattle has seen in over 50 years.  Storm Damage Caused by Trees  The trouble with heavy snow on tree limbs besides the limbs collapsing and causing extensive damage to landing places like cars and roofs is that if they don’t collapse, when more supple, younger limbs are suddenly relieved from…

Seattle Experiences Travel Issues Due to Looming Snowstorm The season’s very first snowfall can both be a joyous moment and a dreadful one. For Seattle, their first glimpse at snowfall this winter season was a dreadful one as they brave the streets for their icy commutes. The entire region was left enveloped in an arctic mass.
