What did I think of the solar eclipse

What did you think about the solar eclipse? How did you feel about all of the "hype" around it - people traveling to see the best spot to view it? Your thoughts/opinions?

Seeing a solar eclipse happens once in about 100 years. In thirty years, I will be able to look back on that day and remember exactly when and where I saw the solar eclipse of 2017. It was one of the most beautiful sites I have ever laid my eyes upon, and I feel so lucky to be able to have seen it. I think there should have more "hype" for the eclipse in our area. We should have been able to do a project on it since it was so rare. I'm very upset because at the end of the day they took away our eclipse glasses and that would have been something that I could have called a treasure later on in life. I also wish we could have seen it when it was in other phases. Traveling to see the eclipse would have been a great adventure.

Hulu, NHL, TNT

Daily blog post: "Two days after inking a partnership with the NHL to stream the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Hulu announced Friday a marketing push that will feature its logo splashed across TNT’s broadcast of the NBA Playoffs.
Hulu’s ad spots will begin airing this Sunday and will last through TNT’s First Round, Conference Semifinals and Western Conference Finals coverage of the NBA Playoffs, during which Hulu will serve as TNT’s presenting sponsor.
As part of the deal with Turner Sports, Hulu will produce exclusive branded content featuring NBA on TNT’s on-air talent, who will highlight the breadth of Hulu’s live TV service."
Question - How does Hulu benefit from this arrangement? How does the NHL benefit? How does TNT benefit?

Hulu, NHL, and TNT all get advertising.

Ticket prices

Daily blog: In recent years the prices charged for tickets have skyrocketed:
Major college football games, such as Alabama vs Texas A&M, can cost $770 each.
New York Yankee fans can pay as much as $500 per seat.
Tickets to see singer Taylor Swift in concert range from $258 to $1358 apiece.
Why do you think tickets for concerts and sporting events cost so much?

I think that tickets cost this much because it takes a lot of money to put on these shows and for everyone to get paid and make revenue then the prices have to be more expensive. The more you pay the better the show you will receive.

Worst/Least effective promotion

Blog: Look at the promotions featured in the article linked below. Which promotion do you think is the worst/least effective? Why? 

The promotion that was least effective would be the brittany spears one because she was an advocate for being a good parent but then was caught driving with her daughter on her lap which is not safe and illegal. She went back on everything she was trying to tell people to do. The Newark Bears made fun of the incident and many people got into the game free.
