Louisiana News & politics focus on Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and Louisiana legislature

Walking around the halls of New Orleans’s Ernest Morial Convention Center this week for three days was hard on the feet , but indeed, more than pleasing to the mind.

What is the future of media?
How can America Online (AOL) come back from the dead to take more of the market share?
America Online is now owned by Verizon which means more smart phones, internet connection (which is where AOL initially made its intro into this space).  However, Facebook and Google ow roughly 85 percent of the advertising dollars.  So, how can AOL and other media companies compete?

 

I’m confused.
Is Donald Trump now, presidential? Is he more presidential, than before?  Will he be even “really, really” more presidential, should he actually become President?  
My answer: No to the first two questions and I doubt it to the last.

Just How far are attorneys, their prospective and actual clients, willing and ready to go to connect online?
This is one of the questions that will be explored this week in New Orleans, as a new online app focused upon the legal profession shares its story, and product, with thousands of investors, potential customers, other startups and technology advocates, exchange ideas and information at the city’s first Collision Conference.

Much has been written about the impact of the confederate monument issue and the defeat of the recent New Orleans millage for police and firemen.
The argument goes like this—Mitch Landrieu is unpopular among whites in New Orleans especially due to his recent actions in trying to remove the confederate statues, such as Robert E. Lee, at Lee Circle.

Music, tech startups, investors collide at Collision New Orleans, April 26-28

If you love the collision of music, technology, boosting startups and investing in the future, New Orleans is the place to be, the week starting Tuesday April 26.

For the most part, the Lewandowski-Fields-Trump appears to be history.
What’s left will likely morph into a civil lawsuit or an apology or both.

The magic number is 14.
On Thursday April 14, 2016 the gang at Politics with a Punch (Jeff Crouere and yours truly), will present its 14th Anniversary Show and you can bet it’s going to be a “classic” and might we add, "hysterical".  

 
Lisa Lloyd, Shark Tank first-season alum, recently featured on the show's epilog, Beyond the Tank, new resident of New Orleans, licensing expert, a consultant for Daymond John, resident for entrepreneur accelerators and business-owner, just won't take defeat.  

The song goes, “if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere”.

All five candidates for President are singing it, one way, or another.  Republicans Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich and Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are firmly engaged in their own renditions of the song that Liza and Frank made so famous.
