Heroes Wall

          The people who might find the Heroes Wall the most meaningful could be the person honored, their parents, or their children. The wall displays photos, short messages, and a brief narrative of what the service person did while they were in uniform.

          United States soldiers do amazing things. There is no way we could completely understand everything they do and have to go through. That also means that we are unable to completely thank them for everything they have done. The Heroes Wall is a good start to thanking our soldiers. It is also a way to immortalize the sacrifice that they made.

          The wall would be a great gift for the hero being honored. It would also be a good gift for their friends and families. The friends and families will be able to go to the wall for years to come to remember everything their hero did for them and for the country.

          One hero who made me grateful was Erica Green. She was a Blackhawk Medevac pilot. She was in the United States Maine Army National Guard from March of 1993 to August of 2007. She is also a combat veteran. Erica Green was in Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2003 to 2004.

          Although I didn’t know Erica Green, I still appreciate everything she did for the country and all the sacrifices she made. This is the whole essence of the Heroes Wall. It’s a place for people to go and appreciate the men and women who served for our country.

Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy did it again

FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) is an investigator with a long-standing reputation for over excelling. In contrast, foul-mouthed, Boston PD detective Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) goes with her instincts and street smarts to remove criminals from her hometown. Things get complicated when these complete opposites have to work together to capture a drug lord, but in the process, they become the last thing anyone expected — friends.

I have watched this film many times and I would recommend it to anybody who wants to laugh. It is definitely a movie with levels. There is the crime and action aspect, a funny aspect and also a bonding aspect. Throughout the movie we get to watch opposites become best friends. I rate this five out of five stars and think it is a must watch.

The director, Paul Feig, has directed many other successful movies, such as, Ghostbusters (2016), Spy (2015), and Bridesmaids (2011).

The producer, Peter Chernin is also known for his work in Hidden Figures (2016), Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), and Oblivion (2013)

With a cast containing Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock it is not hard to believe that The Heat has grossed a worldwide revenue of around 230 million dollars.

Inserted here is a brief trailer.

If you are interested in watching The Heat it is available on Hulu, Vudu, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, the iTunes store and more.

500 Year Old Mummies Discovered in Greenland

Recently, mummies which had previously been hidden in their private frozen tomb are now being discovered due to local hunters.

A group of hunters were looking for birds one day when they stumbled upon a structure made of rocks. One of the hunters took the rock off of the top and he was shocked to see the face of a 500 year old baby staring up at him. 

The mummies are 500 years old and are a family of eight from an old Inuit tribe in Greenland. They were in perfect shape despite being 500 years old, they even still had hair and fingernails. Their bodies were not embalmed like the mummies in Egypt. But due to the weather in Greenland their bodies were simply frozen.

Four of the bodies are on display at the Greenland National Museum in Nuuk. Many people go to the museum to see these mummies in such a spectacular condition. Before they were brought to the museum many scientists did tests to see how they were in such great condition.

The scientist’s conclusion was that due to the lack of humidity and due to the cold Greenland weather the bodies were able to naturally embalm themselves.

Thomas J. Hilfiger

In the 90’s the Tommy Hilfiger brand was growing at a rapid pace and was even described as “oversaturated” and “diluted”. In order for Hilfiger to change directions and slow down his pace he had to completely slow down in every aspect.

To start, he traveled abroad to open Tommy Hilfiger stores in Europe and Asia. Also to gain a different aspect. His strategy was to position his stores closely with other high end brands. After that he started studying demographics and sales numbers. He would watch his sales numbers go up and down depending on small details he changed on the clothes and which stores sold which items. 

Years later, he has reinvented his brand from a “preppy American luxury” to “affordable luxury for people all around the world”. Hilfiger continues to expand to more countries and expand his efforts. He adapts to the needs of certain regions, such as, making a Ramada collection for Muslim women in the middle east. This was a smart business decision because not many high end brands focus on a specific religion or region for a collection of apparel. Due to his amazing efforts and smart business decisions, he is now in the same league of luxury as Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Lacoste.
