Business Vs Brand

There is often a misconception between what a business is and what a brand is. Most people believe that when you open a business, then you have a brand; but that is NOT the case. By the book, a business is an organization engaged in commercial, industrial or professional activities. In other words, when you just open a business that is all you are going to get, a business. A brand serves as the identity of the company. With a branding identity, this is how a company will be perceived by its clients. What you need to understand is that when you open a business you are starting off unknown or ‘faceless’. Nobody will know your business or what it is that your business stands for. After you receive a brand for your business everything starts to come together and it all starts with a logo. Your logo is, in a sense, the initial vision for your company and once you get that initial vision then graphic designers can take your business to the next level in terms of branding. Your websites, yours advertisements, your shopping bags and even the way that you decorate the interior of your business will be given an identity. The people will come to know you and will be able to set you apart from other businesses. Why do you think that brands like Adidas, Apple, or even Google are so well known? It is because they have created an identity for themselves, they opened more than just a business they have created a brand.

A Sprain in the Pride

On Friday, October 13, during the dominating 57-14 win over Swansboro, our own Cameron Rogers was taken out of the game due to a blown out knee; but what exactly happened? A blown out knee, or an unhappy triad, occurs after a lateral blow to the knee, such as a tackle, which causes a rupture the the anterior cruciate ligament, collateral ligament, and the meniscus. According to Coach Knowles, the school takes precautions to make sure players don't further injure themselves and practice safe football techniques such as heads up football to decrease the chance of concussion among the players. Offensively and defensively the team has taken hits. We're down a receiver and a rusher and have to rely on the bench unit to fill in the spots, leaving us shallow in regards to depth. Player morale is affected when players see their teammates and good friends be carried off the field, but the coaching staff is confident that the athletes can handle the injuries with maturity and do what it takes to prepare for the next game

Volunteering is a way for individuals to change others’ lives for the better. Volunteering allows you to connect with your community in a positive way. Getting involved is amazing for all ages. When people volunteer it’s either for academic gain or just community gain. Most high school students volunteer for SAT hours. For more information about SAT hours click on the links below. Volunteering isn’t just a benefit for the place you’re helping, it can benefit you in a variety of ways as well. It can reduce stress levels, connect you to people who can help you in your career life, help you discover skills and create new skills, and it’s just beneficial overall. I will also attach a file of places that are in need of volunteers in Onslow County.
