A Video Product Brochure

I spend a large % of my waking hours in the B2B digital world. While it's nice to see more and more companies embrace web video as a way to engage their customers I am amazed at how many still are slow to take that step. My production team, CNPG Media is top notch. The example shown here is what we call a Product Brochure video. Think of it as a printed brochure brought to life. I like it.

It's the debt Stupid!!!

Came across this on Zero Hedge and it explains in a sentence or two why none of our government stimulus activity is showing any results at this point. You don't need a PHD in economics to understand. Hat tip to David Rosenberg and Zero Hedge

U.S. consumers have 30% more credit card and other revolving debt on their balance sheet than they did just a decade ago. While outstandings are down 6% from the peak, there is still considerable contractions to go before household debt levels revert to the mean relative to both income and assets.

Releasing Strategic Petroleum Reserves.... Why?

I often lament the lack of leadership in both our government and corporate world. The story out today about us releasing oil out of the SPR for the summer driving season takes the cake. Another example of short term expediency instead of thoughtful planning and leadership. The SPR by name is supposed to be strategic. A little cheaper priced gas at the pump just doesn't fit the bill.It's just a cheap political stunt. Something I would expect from Chuck Schumer, not the President. So sad to see utter incompetence.
