The Circus, reserved for only the Greatest Show on Earth, started in the spring of 1871 and officially dies today with the final show.
I have my own thoughts and memories, as do so many people around the world.
When I was a kid the Circus was magic, as was the parade of circus wagons every year in Milwaukee. A neighbor or my Lynch cousins build a full replica of the three ring circus flea size (I never saw and flees) all hand painted and assembled.
Then as an adult I met Nevada SAG and now SAG-AFTRA member Earl Chaney, at one time the lead clown and billboard face of The Circus. His face is famous as the copyrighted pattern was purchased by McDonald's to be Ronald McDonald. Earl rode the rails, lived circus, has two unpublished books on...Read more

Concentration of media ownership (also known as media consolidation or media convergence) is a process whereby progressively fewer individuals or organizations control increasing shares of the mass media.
6 Corporations Control 90% Of The Media In America. Follow Business Insider: This infographic created by Jason at Frugal Dad shows that almost all media comes from the same six sources. That's consolidated from 50 companies back in 1983.
This means that most of US consumer spending on entertainment goes to these six companies. and more important editorial decisions and the key role of the Four Estate fall under an increasing low number of corporate entities.

Media is both singular and plural. It means the way information is transmitted. On television that would be sound and video to a mass audience. Media can be transmitted from one person to one receiver but in common usage it means (usually used with a plural verb) the means of communication, as radio and television, newspapers, magazines, and the Internet, that reach or influence people widely:It has no value, point of view, judgement. The content being transmitted has those things, not the media used.
Journalism is a profession of gathering information, investigating that information, reporting that information and correcting or updating the information as needed.
Media companies are businesses, usually part of groups of media publicati...Read more

Try to understand where others are coming from.
When you speak, debate or post on a blog keep in mind that there are others who have screens/filter, life experience, views or even tramas you may not be aware of.

People's opinion is based on what they see and hear.
It could be a crisis situation that brings you rapid and vast attention or a corporate announcement or press conference. You could be acting in your own commercial or giving an interview. Whether in person or using Skype or other services you need to be at your best.
The way you work with media will affect how you and your message are received.
The Internet is a global visual communication tool. Various forms of media are used for entertainment, education, infomercials, employee and client communications, training, documentaries, college courses, community meetings, and so much more. If you have not yet been on a screen, you likely will be.
First of all, know how to look, move and talk...Read more

Are we in a new Golden Age of Television or a transition where reality TV and fast cancellations confuse and alienate potential audiences?
Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Google and the networks themselves (including cable networks) have gone into original motion picture and television production as well as streaming video.
NCIS remains the top watched television drama in the world. But how long can that show go on? Will NCIS LA continue, and will NCIS New Orleans have a leg to stand on? How long can networks survive on "franchises" instead of great new shows.
Part of the problem may be the networks themselves.
They do not give shows a chance.
Had they been launched today "Cheers", "Friends", "M*A*S*H" and other long running hits would never have...Read more

Put aside the media, put off the thing you are doing with friends. here are cold hard facts about being an actor.
1. Make it to class and make it on time. If you cannot make it let te coach or teacher know well in advance. Not only is that good practice for the industry or any business. but for a class to progress you need to commit to scenes or other outside homework and being in class to work with or share with your class, your fellow actors.
2. Read. A good starter list and link to others is attacked. It is necessary to learn from the best, cut your teeth on quality time tested material and to have an educated feel for the news, issues and events, even politics. The more we know about today, and history, the more we can bring to the t...Read more
