What brands can learn about content and COVID-19 from #SNLAtHome

Posted by admin on

Live from New York, it’s Saturday night! This line, signaling the end of the Saturday Night Live cold open and start of a new episode, has marked weekends for 45 years. It’s also marked many laugh-filled moments for me personally as I watched reruns with my mom at a horribly inappropriate age. Unfortunately, as COVID-19 (coronavirus) took hold of the world — and especially of New York City, the home of SNL — production of the NBC staple came screeching to a halt. With social distancing orders in place, the SNL cast couldn’t be together, let alone welcome an audience,...

Earth has a new companion: a mini-moon called 2020 CD3

Posted by admin on

On Feb. 15, scientists discovered a small rocky chunk that was captured by our planet’s gravity. But don’t get too excited, because it’s likely only a temporary fixture. Our planet has only one natural satellite, our moon, but for the last couple of years, there’s been another lurking out in space.
