During the Hundred Years' War, England had a centralized, state-controlled organization for manufacturing arrows in bulk. These were then issued as required to the soldiers on campaign.
It would make perfect sense for Mad Men to win its record-setting fifth Best Drama Emmy. And it's high time for Jon Hamm, after eight nominations for his masterful performance as the iconic Don Draper, to finally take the Best Actor prize.
Other #MorningWins include last night's ESPY's awards ceremony. Jenner makes big news there, but my favorite is Ronda Rousey's Floyd Mayweather commentary after accepting her award for best fighter.
Might want to start stockpiling those down jackets: The sun could nod off by 2030, triggering what scientists are describing as a "mini ice age."
If we actually think about it, Game of Thrones is more of a fictional historical show than it is straight-up fantasy. Sure, magic, dragons and White Walkers appear in the story, but these are not what drives the plot.
I shoulder my pack and begin the hike upwards. Stopping at an overview I feel like I've been slipped a mild tranquilizer. I swallow a set of tears. Is it the wind, or the view? The air is the freshest I've ever breathed, a salt wash for the soul.
Fashion is fickle and comes in waves, rushing up onto the shores of consciousness, soaking the landscape so it becomes more than a trend, before receding to be re-invented, a decade or two later.
ew leadership transitions trigger a more immediate sense of uncertainty and risk for most of us than the replacement of the CEO at one's organization. The less clear the criteria, the more widespread the intrigues. The less managed the process, the greater the ensuing commotion.
I can't in good conscience, feminist and otherwise, continue watching a show that is so blatant -- so over the top -- in its sexism and misogyny and makes no apologies for it. As a human being, I agree with Tyrion Lannister: "There's always been enough death in the world for my taste: I can do without it in my leisure time."
While most Game of Thrones fans are mourning the loss of treasured characters, as a longtime admirer of George RR Martin, I wonder how the great man would have written the wedding the fans have been cheated of -- Jon Snow and Ygritte.
Changing the way your therapists deliver customer service at your spa through training is no easy task. Game of Thrones shows us that the road to success may be rife with drama but in the end for your customers, brand and team, it will be worth the journey.
Although Game of Thrones is fantasy based, so many topical issues are portrayed through its story and I, for one, am grateful the author, writers and actors are willing to not only tackle the hard storylines, but willing to do it all the way, no holds barred.
Last night, another season of "Game of Thrones" ended in bloody, punishing, somewhat dispiriting fashion. (Don't worry, no spoilers here!) Of course, it's nothing you're not used to already if you're a fan of the show.
Game of Thrones fans are mad as hell and we aren't going to take it -- after a season full of twist, turns and terrifying deaths, the fifth season finale hit fans where it hurt with perhaps the most gut wrenching death yet.
After last week's Game of Thrones episode, "Hardhome", I wrote here that we were basically tricked into seeing the White Walkers as villains, which they are probably not. Well, after episode 9, "Dance with Dragons", the opposite should be said about the dragons.
We know a thing or to about breakups, and a thing or two about Game Of Thrones. Put it together and you have the Game of Exes. After a breakup, a queen like oneself must protect her heart, or throne, with an iron fist.
