Anderson: Hunting and fishing TV shows are still changing

Beginning in 1965 and continuing through 1986, “The American Sportsman” was broadcast on ABC, hosted by Curt Gowdy. Gowdy was an outdoorsman and broadcast journalist who stumbled across the show’s concept when ABC sent him to Argentina to fish with world famous angler Joe Brooks. The segment was slotted in an episode of ABC’s “Wide World of Sports.” “The public reaction was so strong a new series was born,” Gowdy, who died in 2006 at the age of 86, later recalled. At its core, “The American Sportsman” was a call to adventure that reflected and validated the interests of its viewers, while also transporting them, vicariously, to places they might never visit. In those respects, the show was a film version of American outdoor storytelling that began around campfires in the 1700s. So much has happened in the centuries since, particularly in the past 50 years, that Gowdy might not recognize the outdoors broadcasting “industry.” Now, as many Minnesotans settle in for a long winter of more “watching” than “doing,” they’ll see changes among hunting and fishing shows. Some hosts are handing their “star” duties to sons or daughters. And more outdoors viewing options than ever are availab...

Founded in 1993 by brothers Tom and David Gardner, The Motley Fool helps millions of people

Founded in 1993 by brothers Tom and David Gardner, The Motley Fool helps millions of people attain financial freedom through our website, podcasts, books, newspaper column, radio show, and premium investing services. I just went back and checked. In 2009, my family purchased two items. Since then, we’ve ordered roughly 2,000 more. Diaper deliveries alone have made Amazon a godsend. Its stock has also provided enormous returns. I called it my highest-conviction stock in 2012, and regularly pore over every word that founder and CEO Jeff Bezos utters. Shares have increased 1,300% over the past decade, making it a top stock to own. Full disclosure: I have sold Amazon shares before because they had grown to be too large a position in my portfolio. But now — for the first time ever — I’ll be selling shares because I’m losing faith in the company. This has nothing to do with valuation, or the potential expansion into other industries. It’s something much simpler — and in the long run, more important — that is bothering me. I’ve long said the only way someone from the 1990s could understand the evolution of Amazon is via its mission ...

13 Products Featured on Shark Tank That You Can Now Buy on Amazon

As an entrepreneur, you’re likely already familiar with ABC’s Shark Tank, the show where aspiring business owners pitch their products to celebrity investors. You may be vying to get on the show some day. Perhaps the coolest part of Shark Tank is that the products and services that are funded really do tend to take off. Even some that didn’t get investment on the show have realized degrees of success as well. The show rewards these hard-working innovators with brand recognition, but then the money from the sharks themselves allow business operations to scale to the point where you may see ads online or, in the case of these products, you start to see them all over Amazon.

Live music, colorful booths and a variety of products are featured at the Bethlehem Farmers’ Market

Live music, colorful booths and a variety of products are featured at the Bethlehem Farmers’ Market in Farrington Square. Organized by Lehigh’s Office of Sustainability, the market usually has between 12 to 15 vendors and is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursdays from May 2-Oct. 31. Deb Martin, the farmers’ market’s manager, said the purpose of the market is to “operate as a service to the community by Lehigh University, while also working to bring fresh, local, organic food into South Bethlehem — an area where these products aren’t commonly found.” Martin’s role as a manager is to help vendors get permits from the city to ensure that businesses are fully licensed to sell at the market, order signs to promote the market around campus, and book live musicians every week. One vendor at the market is Patriot Farms. Co-owners Brittany Pinter and Ansel Bachman quit their full-time jobs to pursue a dream of producing fresh, quality ingredients to share with others. Pinter said Patriot Farms chooses to sell food at the farmers’ market because she was “drawn to the location of Lehigh because of its gorgeous area,” while also wanting her products to “reach consumers who are interested...

After reviewing different parameters of the client’s requirement, the team of Magento developers came up with

After reviewing different parameters of the client’s requirement, the team of Magento developers came up with this innovation that is mainly related to item blocks featuring distinctive products or product mixes that can be programmed in various ways. For instance, items in the featured product block may contain a product name, custom photo, cost, and ratings as well as an “Add to Cart” button. The extension can display the products in blocks according to top vendors, a top product, and sorted by dates. At long last, Featured Product blocks can be incorporated into the sidebars or main content area of your website. The Key features included were: • Create an infinite number of blocks. • Insert blocks via CMS, layout, and widgets. • Select product pictures to display in the block. • Disable the extension when not in use. With all these aforementioned intuitive functionalities, the Magento extension turns out to be a robust thing offering the clients a leg up on the competition. On and all, the extension was designed and developed to cover almost all the needs of web owners.
