The following events are scheduled for today. Television coverage in the United States is via NBC and NBCSN. U.S. skier Mikaela Shiffrin is scheduled to run in the giant slalom sometime this week, but a firm schedule has not been confirmed due to high winds that have hampered the entire Alpine skiing program.  We’re also waiting for the debut of Lindsey Vonn in this Olympics, in the downhill. Also on hold. Check your local listings.

Alpine Skiing (scheduled but tentative)
Biathlon
Cross Country
Curling
Figure Skating
Ice Hockey
Luge
Nordic Combined (don’t miss this one)
Skeleton
Snowboarding
Speed Skating

Remember: The nightly prime-time telecasts will feature the most popular events; if you want to see some of the more unique/esoteric events, check out NBCSN, which is available all day on air, online, and streaming. Some events at this Olympics have been delayed or postponed, especially the Alpine Skiing events, due to high winds, so NBC’s programming will shift accordingly. We follow everything via NBCSN since they tend to show it all.

The Nightshift: 14 February 2018

Good Morning, it’s Wednesday, 14 February 2018,  and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.

Once again–no slalom or downhill for the men or women at the Winter Olympics. We still have not seen Mikaela Shiffrin or Lindsey Vonn run. The alpine competitions were rescheduled again due to high winds; next projected run days for Alpine skiing are Thursday and Friday.

There was great news for America in snowboarding however, as Shaun White, who had previously won two  gold medals in the sport, picked up his third with a dazzling, high-risk, dangerous final run that scored a jaw-dropping 97.75. With this Olympic gold,  White has crossed the line from top competitor to legend. He has hinted that he might show at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, where………skateboarding will be a medal sport for the first time. The New York Times did a massively terrific piece on White’s half-pipe run; you should read it. Use our direct link: Shaun White in the Times.

You can see the running medal count with this direct link.

Those guys in Washington are just that–those guys in Washington. Out-of-balance economic programs, poorly vetted employees, avoidance of responsibility and prone to inaction.  The best of America is at the Winter Olympics. You can draw your own conclusions about what’s in Washington.

Today is Valentine’s Day. You know what to do: flowers, maybe some candy (or power bars for the athletically inclined) and certainly a nice dinner. Hop to it….you do not want to mess this one up.

The Metrics

Point of Information

For those who keep track of such things–and that’s one of the things we do in The Media Bunker–the metrics behind a blog like this one can get very interesting. Here’s a breakdown of what’s been published and what’s in the pipeline to this point in time:

Articles Published: 1613

Drafts: 310

Private Articles: 25

Total Articles: 1948

That’ s over 1600 articles published and another 310 in the pipeline, ready to go up on the site or in progress for publishing.

Twenty-Five articles have “private” status, which means they’ve been published and then retired from view.

Interesting, if you’re a  blog metrics type of person.

The Nightshift: 13 February 2018

Good Morning, it’s Tuesday, 13 February 2018,  and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.

Weather continues to be a factor at the Winter Olympics as winter storms and high winds hamper Alpine events. Yesterday, the action centered around qualifying for the men’s half-pipe, where veteran Shaun White put on a show with huge air and signature tricks. Also yesterday, the men’s Alpine combined (downhill and slalom) was staged despite difficult conditions. Marcel Hirscher of Austria won Gold in the event. Curling continues to rack up a lot of network coverage as more and more people get the “I can do that” feeling” while watching. You can see the running medal count with this direct link.

The Rob Porter alleged domestic abuse mess (what did they know, when did they know it) continues in Washington.

Overseas, a Russian Airliner crashed after takeoff in Moscow, killing all on board.

Today is Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday (and Valentines Day). Eat what you want and enjoy it.

The Nightshift: 12 February 2018

Good Morning, it’s Monday, 12 February 2018,  and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.

The Nightshift is moving to a more streamlined format to accommodate a slate of new  Media Bunker  projects.

The games are on in PyeonChang and America is doing well. Chloe Kim took the Gold in snowboard halfpipe and the U.S. Figure Skating Team took Bronze in the team figure skating competition. Congratulations to all the American athletes who made the team and are competing. Once again, high winds have postponed skiing, with the women’s Giant Slalom also delayed; earlier the men’s downhill was postponed. So far, we have yet to see American medal hopefuls Mikaela Shiffrin (slalom, GS) and Lindsey Vonn (GS, downhill) ski. Events are tentatively re-scheduled for Thursday but the weather is a big factor. You can see the running medal count with this direct link.

President Trump is taking cultural heat for his “tone deaf” position on the resignation of former White House staffer Rob Porter, who was forced out of the White House due to accusations of abuse by both of his ex-wives . That is background noise this week, however, because the Olympics are in progress.

Today is National Clean Out Your Computer Day. Find all those old and duplicate files and….delete them.
