Since most of us are already pretty "Media Savvy" - Perhaps now we should applying our collective smarts to becoming more "PR Savvy" as well...Since that's the "Medium" where the most subtle and pervasive messages now exist!
Here's a great example of how powerful well constructed PR can be...and the risks that this now represents to all of us....

Summer 1937. What could be more fitting in the cool afternoon of an English country lane than a group of cycling tourists steadily pedalling their way from one historic site to another, stopping to camp overnight in fields along the way.
The only problem was, that summer, some of those groups of teenage boys were Hitler Youth.
Imagine if this was now, would a load of taliban members be able to get in the country for a bike ride?
...actually they probably would!

People wonder why the UCI is loathed by the community they govern. Here is proof.
For some history see the Jonny Lee Miller Movie, The Flying Scotsman. Good illustration of one man against a sport's governing body. Now the UCI is being heavy handed with bike manufacturers.
It takes some time for the tech to get down to the consumer, but when it does, life is good. Unfortunately, in addition to competing with other bike makers they need to walk a tightrope with the UCI. As a Triathlete, in the end it benefits me because bike fabricators, like the swim suit makers, place more energy in the sport that is growing without heavy handed legislation.People wonder why the UCI is loathed by the community they govern.

Tour de France champion Alberto Contador insists the thought of having seven-time winner Lance Armstrong as his main rival in this year's race is not keeping him awake at night. The Spaniard, Tour champion in 2007 and 2009 and Tour of Italy and Spain winner in 2008, believes he will have more than the American to deal with.
Contador overcame tensions within Astana, the team Armstrong joined last year to make his comeback to the sport, to win the 2009 edition thanks to crushing performances in the mountains and final time trial. Armstrong battled to finish third, and then promptly announced the creation of a new team, RadioShack, that he hopes to lead to victory in 2010.
Although an outright Contador v Armstrong clash is mouth-watering, the Spaniard said he believes it may not be the only one on the horizon. At Astana's team presentation here Saturday, Contador said he believed there could be up to 10 real challengers for the race's prestigious yellow jersey.
"Of course Lance will be one of my rivals this year but I'm more relaxed," said the 27-year-old, who finished last year's race over four minutes ahead of Luxembourg's Andy Schleck. "I'm not the only big favorite. There's a group of around eight to 10 riders who could throw their hat in for a victory at the Tour."
Armstrong, third at 5:24 last July, boosted his chances of an eighth Tour win by taking the bulk of last year's Astana team with him to RadioShack, including American Levi Leipheimer and German Andreas Kloden.
Although an almost unrivalled climber and a strong time trialist, the big question supporters of Contador will want to ask is whether his team, which now includes disgraced Kazakh star Alexandre Vinokourov, are up to the job.
Vinokourov returned to cycling last year following a two-year ban for doping. He and the entire Astana team, when it was under different management, were thrown off the 2007 Tour de France. Vinokourov said there was only one objective on the team's mind: "The aim is to win the Tour de France for Astana and show that, with Alberto Contador, we are the best team in the world," he said. "I think that with his talent and my experience, I can count on him to succeed.
"Former Tour winner Oscar Pereiro, who was on the brink of retirement before he joined Astana with five other Spaniards, said there is no doubt who they will be racing for. “When Alberto is in this team, all riders work for Alberto, this team is Alberto... and others," Pereiro, the 2006 Tour de France winner, joked to journalists.
"He's the best rider of the world and for the other riders, it's a motivation." From a total of 27 riders Astana counts 13 Kazakhs, seven Spaniards, three Italians, two Australians, as well as one Ukrainian and a Slovenian.
Contador has one year left on his contract with the team, which he unsuccessfully tried to leave after his second Tour triumph. For now, he is giving nothing away about possible future destinations. "It's only January. There's a big possibility that I will stay longer with Astana. But there are other possibilities," he said.Tour de France champion Alberto Contador insists the thought of having seven-time... more
Two young men caught cycling with no clothes on have escaped charges of offensive behaviour, but received a warning to wear protective headgear.
Local policewoman Cathy Duder was unfazed when she came across the two nude men, both in their early 20s.
"They were more shocked than I was, trying to cover up their bits and pieces with their hands," she said.
The men were riding around the Coromandel seaside resort of Whangamata on the north-east coast of New Zealand.
When asked for an explanation, the pair replied that "they wanted to experience total freedom".Two young men caught cycling with no clothes on have escaped charges of offensive... more

Ultra endurance events don't need to be high budget. Some teams have enormous budgets and can afford mobile homes and the like.

In this article (part 4) he rides the Tour de France prologue and watches the Grand Depart.Ultra endurance events don't need to be high budget. Some teams have enormous... more
