Of all the new audio video entertainment technologies that have become commonplace in the recent years, none have progressed as far and as quickly as video displays. With the advent of High Definition displays in 1998, the format has evolved and grown more capable ever since. We look back on TVs that could extrapolate twice the resolution of a standard DVD as nearly ancient history. Transitioning from 640x480 lines of resolution to 1280x720 and 1080x1920 seemed amazing in its day, but now screens with 4096 x 2160 (4K) and 7680 × 4320 (8K) resolutions are becoming the standard. Content is never far behind, and in some cases is actually the driving force behind the emergence of these standards.

Advertising is a form of marketing communication used to promote or sell a product, service or idea. This covers a lot of ground, from companies that use it to make their products desirable, to politicians that want you to buy into their views. It can be positive or negative, such as explaining the health benefits of a particular food, or smearing the reputation of an opposing political candidate.

Trapshooting is a sport of movement, action and split-second timing. It requires accuracy and skill to repeatedly aim, fire and break the 4.25 inch orange discs which are propelled through the air at high speed. Each time a disc is launched it flies at a different angle and trajectory, with mere seconds for a shot to be taken before it is out of range or hits the ground.

The world is far from a peaceful, stable place. Geopolitical tensions seem to increase, and then subside, but most every storm has been weathered to some extent or another. Those that believe this to be as cyclical as the weather will allude to the fact that every generation has faced its own set of crises, many of which may have been worse than current events, only to have prevailed and come out stronger as a result. And although this is true, if one examines the broader story arc of where things are going, the big picture does raise some concern.
