American CIA U2 spy pilot Francis G. Powers (Austin Stowell) is shot down and captured by the Soviet Union. Meanwhile the KGB intelligence spy Rudolph Abel (Mark Rylance) has been arrested under the suspicion of espionage. James B. Donovan (Tom Hanks), an insurance lawyer, is assigned the unenviable task of defending Abel in court during a volatile time in post-war history. While Abel is considered guilty, Donovan finds a way to convince the justice system save Abel’s life from a U.S. death sentence so that he can be used for a prisoner exchange. That exchange would take every ounce of the lawyer’s negotiating skills, as his own life has also been put in danger.

I wasn't sure I was going to watch this, but five minutes in, I decided to record the series.

Watching the pilot for the new TV series #Pitch was more emotional than I thought. The reason was a combination of the thought of the first woman in a professional male sport. The other was reminiscing my time working for a Triple A baseball club.

The production is really a well done and it is exactly the dynamics a woman would face in any male-dominated profession. At first, I expected the character to be named Mone, the same as the pitching phenom that donned the SI cover two years ago: http://mashable.com/2014/08/19/mone-davis-sports-illustrated-cover/#0yygFxJOaiq0

I could see this happening for #MoneDavis  but I guess she has turned her eye towards basketball for now.

Like the first sales call for many business people, nervousness throws you well off your game. Once you settle down and focus on what matters, then your skill set takes over. :)

Fernando González Molina beautifully directed this captivating story about love and family. Palm Trees in the Snow (2015) will hold your heart through every scene. This international drama was written by Sergio G. Sánchez, based on the novel by Luz Gabás.

Mario Casas is Killam, who leaves his homeland of Spain in 1953 to work at a cacao plantation in Spanish Guinee, on the island of Ferdinand Poo. He is accompanied by his father and his brother. While he is there, he falls in love with Bisila (Berta Vázquez) — a taboo affair.

Digital and Media Publicist. Marketing and Transmedia Strategist. Writer.
Introduction

Debbie Elicksen has many years' experience as a project manager, direct client service, and created and maintained project schedules -- especially with regards to publications and websites in an agency environment and in the private sector.

Her strengths are writing, editing, and digital media strategist/manager. She writes blog posts, articles, emails, proposals, and social content to fit any medium. She knows what to share, how to share, and when to share. She is able to manage multiple projects and platforms and is a natural networker. She also teaches others how to adapt to digital media and help them get comfortable using the tools that will guide them to creating their best digital footprint.

When it comes to digital media, she walks the talk. She has a good collective following in her digital networks, a strong tweetreach, and a Klout score from 65 to 67.

Her understanding of media basics and concepts are at an expert level. She has had many years experience both in front and "behind a camera" in video, print, and audio. She wrote advertising features for over five years for the Calgary Herald and Source Media, and covered the National Hockey League as a sportswriter. Keeping abreast of industry trends in media is a regular task.

Her resume is best found on LinkedIn: https://ca.linkedin.com/in/debbieelicksen and you can find links to her digital networks on the Google+ About page. 

There are three current blogs that showcase some of her writing skills:


Sports.

Debbie has been a professional sportswriter and covered the National Hockey League for over 20 years for several publications, including NBCSports.com, Sportsticker, and Fischler Sports Service. Having worked in both amateur and professional sports administration, she is the first woman to ever headman a football conference in Canada and was also the Public Relations Director for a California Angels Triple A team. She has worked directly with a number of high profile athletes, including Jarome Iginla, Gordie Howe, Dante Bichette, Hurricane Carter, and more.

Virtual Newsmakers.

Along with Cynthia K. Seymour, Debbie has created and hosted Virtual Newsmakers, an Internet web show that interviews thought leaders and those who are bridging traditional and digital communications. Guests have included R2D2 Creator Tony Dyson, U.S. Olympic bobsleigh gold medalist Steve Mesler, author and co-host of the Fat Doctors Braxton Cosby, United Breaks Guitar singer/songwriter Dave Carroll, and Internet thought leaders: Erik Qualman, Chris Brogan, and Martin Shervington, to name a few.

Media/Training.

Debbie has worked both in front and behind the traditional and digital microphone strategizing, producing, and managing media, public relations, and marketing campaigns. She has been a member of the Canadian Association of Professional speakers and has delivered keynotes, facilitation, and training to schools, universities, teachers’ conferences, speaking associations, and career development organizations.

Business Cyberbullies.

Debbie fought back against her own cyberbully by authoring a book (Business Cyberbullies) and creating www.businesscyberbullies.com to empower adult targets of cyberbullies. 

Other.

She also has a coffee distributorship where you can change your health by changing your coffee: http://smoothandeasycoffee.myorganogold.com/.

NOTE: Without exception, all trolls and cyberbullies will be banned, blocked, and may be reported.
