Happy Sunday, America!
I’m headed down to San Diego today for the Christmas holiday. For the fourth year in a row, I’m treated to another sunny Christmas in Southern California with my relatives and their extended families. From following the same annual traditions to seeing all the old faces again, I enjoy this time of the year the most.
Let’s take a look at this week’s #Read3 and what I can expect for the week ahead.
- What “The Incredibles” Taught Me About Inequality – Jon Negroni has a fair-minded take on what the Disney film The Incredibles can teach us about inequality in the United States, regardless of your political persuasions.
- Why SeaWorld PR is Doing *Everything* Wrong with the #Blackfish Scandal – Lauren Gray details how SeaWorld is poorly handling the backlash against its brand after a CNN documentary exposed how the company mistreats its whales. SeaWorld even went as far as deleting negative comments from critics and blocking them on its Facebook page, which is a terribly bad strategy for any brand facing negative publicity.
- IAC’s PR Chief Apparently Tweeted a Bizarrely Tasteless Joke About AIDS and Africa – You’ve probably heard about this enough times to know how deplorable this person’s actions were. If you don’t know, read on and judge for yourself.
- Christmas – Needless to say, I’m looking forward to spending this time with my relatives. Amid all the challenges I have endured this year especially as far as my job search is concerned, I hope this coming week will cheer me up a bit. It always does.
Have a wonderful Christmas and a happy holiday season, everyone!
