Media Or President? Fox’s Heather Childers took exception to President Obama’s use of the term “YOLO” (you only live once) in a healthcare.gov promotional video by responding with “Well, you know who’s not alive? Kayla Mueller.”

Silence Cheapens Us All Brian Williams, the deposed NBC news anchor, was recently crucified upside down on the cross of conservative obscenities.

New Downtown Living

Features Patrick Sullivan Petoskey’s downtown is also built out, and prices of old homes close to the center are going up, even if they aren’t in great condition. A red hot market for in-town real estate and a lack of space to build has taken away a lot of what builders or remodelers can do, said agent Lori Jodar of Lori Jodar & Company.

The New Social Hour

Experts, Users Speak Out About Social Media

Features Ross Boissoneau Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Plus, Foursquare, Snapchat, Digg, YouTube, and a host of other sites and technologies have come and, in some cases, gone (anyone remember MySpace?).

Not many women are brewers in the burgeoning world of craft beer, but that doesn’t mean there couldn’t—or shouldn’t—be more. An early pioneer on the Traverse City brewing scene was Kim Schneider, head brewer at North Peak several years ago. Schneider moved on and currently crafts beer at a downstate brewpub.

Now, brewer Tina Schuett has taken the beer-making baton and run with it.
