It's one thing to be an idiot but it's another to announce that you're an idiot.
Secretary of State John Kerry said in Vienna on Friday that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State.

Thunderous boos for Cruz for nor endorsing Trump. Cruz's missed opportunity may have killed his political career.

I don't "Guarantee Media, I just get it!"
Introduction
          I joined MAYO Communications in 1995, which has mushroomed into very successful international public relations agency based in LA, with offices in San Diego, New York. In my spare time, I currently write on LA Business Investment stories for the Examiner.com, about transportation, entertainment trends, TV shows, film and lifestyle news for Technorati.com. For the last decade I've written PR industry articles for the infamous Jack O’Dwyer PR Publications, http://odwyerpr.com, NY. I serve on the Silicon Beach Young Professionals (YP) Board of Directors, one of the fastest growing groups in SoCal. Since January monthly attendance of entrepreneurs, startup CEOs and Investors has jumped 500%. The mixers are sponsored by #GOOGLE and #GODADDY EXAMINER: (http://goo.gl/UOzOqa. I have scores of journalism, writing and photography awards, but the award I'm most proud of is the Medal of Valor, California State Firefighters Association for saving the life of a noted UCLA Medical Center doctor from his burning SUV following an early morning head-on crash. I was on my way to a crisis workshop in Century City, too. I enjoy mentoring buddy PR and media pros and speak at local universities such as USC, UCLA and Loyola Marymount.


I maintain dozens of blogs on every industry from business, entertainment to high tech and in social media, too. Some highlights are listed in the column on your right.

Only communicators can join. 

Before public relations, I carved out an award-winning TV and radio news career covering LA Riots, earthquakes, courts cops and LA City hall. I'm one of two of original writers on Today in LA Weekends, 1st 90 minute show on NBCLA. As a newsreporter my voice could be heard on KGIL Newstalk 1260 AM, on KFI 640 AM, KNX, CBS and NBC Mutual News. During the devastating earthquakes, wildfires and LA riots he worked as a news correspondent for NBC Mutual New, KNX, KRLA and KZLA FM radio stations.

I also serve as publicity director on the Silicon Beach Young Professionals Board of Directors (SBYP), which is the fastest growing hightech and young professionals group in SoCal.

I obtained my Bachelors in Mass Communications and Journalism (double major) at Western Washington University, Bellingham, WA.  I received  technical photography training as US Navy Photographer, (US Naval Schools of Photography, Pensacola, FL) and manned a military CIO and photo lab on base at  Oak Harbor, Whidbey Island, WA.

One of the most critical agencies in Los Angeles County making a difference in fighting Homelessness. Getting homeless families (children, too) off the street and into a home costs taxpayers less than 1/3 of the costs to pay for homelessness on the street. Think about it and take action.

If you want to get a good feel of the culture and energy of Buenos Aires at a real affordable price Mansilla, 3935 Mansilla Street, City of Buenos Aires Bed and Breakfast is a great option. It is quiet, relaxing, the rooms are nice and the hosts and employees are friendly and accomodating. We spent eight days there, which was very relaxing for my wife.The entire building and rooms are decorated with antique furniture. There is a common dining room for breakfast with a full table of goodies to eat with fresh coffee, orange juice and so many different pastries and cookies to choose from. It is in the heart of the city with taxis or buses nearby.I highly recommend walking, because every picture is postcard perfect. Bring layered clothing, sweaters, sweatshirts and gloves in the winter, because the weather can be down to near zero one night and warmer than Los Angeles the next day. BA is a city that never sleeps. Two thumbs up! George McQuade III, Los Angeles, California.

I attending Whisky a Go Go during a teen concert for my client Dance Moms and was amazed at the size of the place in Hollywood. It has a great stage for bands, huge floor and also a great balcony with seating for about 75 people. It has great light, access and parking and history with music giants in Hollywood.

I sat at the Counter (no pun intended here) so I could watch the bar tender, servers and customer reactions to the activity going on. I only had a hour for lunch, but as a first timer visiting I received the red carpet treatment. I felt so motivated I started tweeting and even posting my lunch plate online. The place is amazing. I had the signature Counter burger, which includes bacon, sunny side up egg on top inside a french bun (choose your own bread), but my mouth is so small, so I had a challenge just taking bite. It was delicious delicious. The frys were hot and yummy, too. Since I was working, I did not get a chance to try the dozen or so beer choices on tap, but I notice a sign that said you can have up to four sample taster tests (4 ounches each, which = 16 ounces of free beer) I will be back Friday night. Thx!

I attended an awards show and was wowed by the decorations and lighting. Very warm lighting for a nice evening dinner. Also the food is very delicious and served hot. The venue is perfect for funding raising events, red carpet celebrity charity events and it has a stage and PA system. If you need a dancing floor they have a wooden floor that is huge in the middle of the ballroom. There is also balcony seating for a spectacular view of everything going on in front of you. Nice place!
