Sports reporter, Hickory Daily Record, Hickory, N.C.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes, but never for work.

How is social media changing news?

Social media is making news personal and sharable, which encourages people to become immersed in stories.

Watch and listen: B.B. King’s best collaborations over the years — Blues legend B.B King, who died at 89 yesterday, will always be remembered as the "King of the Blues." While he - and his guitar "Lucille" - became famous for a solo career that won him a record 15 Grammys in the blues category, he was equally well-known for his collaborations with other artists through the years.

At WMA, The Times, They Are A-Changin’ — I had a fantastic time during this week's World Millwork Alliance (WMA) plant tours of three diverse companies based in Houston. I met another group of engaging, funny, down-to-earth people who are passionate about their work. I learned a lot about another part of the construction industry.

WDMA Literally Knows its Way Around Washington — The Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) spring meeting and legislative conference that wrapped up this week in Washington, D.C., gave this fenestration newcomer more great opportunities to meet and interact with some of the top people in our industry.

Fred Durst is filming an eHarmony commercial — Maybe this time, Fred Durst did it all for the 29 Dimensions of Compatibility. From Instagram comes the surreal photo below. It's '90s rap-metal superstar Durst of Limp Bizkit arm-in-arm with eHarmony CEO Neil Clark Warren. Huh? According to Us Weekly, Durst recently directed a commercial for the dating site, whose ads frequently feature Warren, 79.

After 60 Years, Miami’s Dash Door Still Open to New Ideas — In 2015, Dash Door & Closer Service Inc. of Miami celebrates its 60th year of success in South Florida, but don't expect these company employees to spend a lot of time reminiscing. They're far too busy for that. "It's been fun, but in the past seven years we've gotten our act together," says COO Steven Sanko.

AAMA Aftermath: Takeaways from a Major Industry Gathering — by Trey BarrineauFebruary 23rd, 2015 February 23rd, 2015 by Trey Barrineau I just got back from sunny Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and the 78th annual American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) conference, which stands out in my mind for more reasons than the amazing weather. First of all, it was another great educational experience for this fenestration newbie.

Building Safer Schools After Sandy Hook: An Architect’s View — Sunday marked the second anniversary of the horrific and tragic mass murder at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., where 20 young children and six adult staff members were shot to death by a mentally disturbed young man.

Has it really been 10 years since ‘Since U Been Gone’ came out? — On Nov. 16, 2004, Kelly Clarkson's Since U Been Gone, one of the all-time guilty-pleasure records, was released. The original American Idol winner had already enjoyed success with her first album, 2003′s Thankful. But 2004′s Breakaway really launched her into the stratosphere of fame, and Since U Been Gone was the rocket that shot her there.

The funniest Twitter reactions to Kim Kardashian’s bare butt — If you haven't seen the latest nude Kim Kimkardashian photos yet (including the new, full-Kimmy ones), you will. The gravitational pull of that rear end can bend time and space; do you honestly think you'll be able to escape it?

Listen: The Ramones’ earliest demo recordings — Long before they became Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and the fathers of punk rock, The Ramones made fast, simple music that packed a visceral punch. Nowhere is that more evident than on the earliest demo recordings for their debut album Ramones, which came out in April 1976.
