Scholars in the field of public relations have been focusing on stealing thunder as an potential crisis communication strategy to understand how it could affect the image of an organization after a crisis. The idea of reaching the public with the crisis information first before the third party has many potential positive outcomes, including controlling the pipeline of the crisis information and showing the organization as a reliable source of information. Social media has been a helpful medium to reach the public fast and without a third party's interference like the media. However, perceived reach of the crisis information messages on social media could influence the crisis communication message. The current study investigated the effectiveness of stealing thunder messages and their perceived reach via social media (i.e., Twitter.com) on the public's satisfaction and the perceived credibility of the organization using four different organizations from different sectors. The study employed a 2 (crisis communication strategy: stealing thunder vs. thunder) x 2 (the public's perceived reach of the message: high vs. low) between-subjects experimental design. The four industries chosen for the experiment were auto, airline, food and beverages, and the manufacturing industry. For each company, a hypothetical crisis scenario was created with four different conditions (tweets). Stealing thunder was represented by a tweet from the company itself. Thunder condition was represented by a tweet from a media organization (New York Times) with tweets representing either a high perceived reach or low perceived reach. Results were calculated based on the respondents' perceived reach of the crisis messages. In total, sixteen different conditions were used for the study (n=940). The findings confirm that stealing thunder leads to better satisfaction, credibility, word-of-mouth communication, and purchase intentions. In addition, the public's perceived high reach of social media messages could lead to better satisfaction when organizations decide to steal thunder. This study opens the door for further investigation into the influence of perceived reach of crisis communication messages using stealing thunder strategy.

From the author of the Masters Unleashed series, Sparrow Beckett revs things up with two lovers on a collision course in the first Masters of Adrenaline novel. Nothing gives Addison Kennedy a rush like stealing cars. The Lexus was the perfect target, but before she can get its engine purring, she's cold-cocked unconscious. When she comes to, she finds herself on a bed with a blonde, tattooed god standing over her. Fox Larson is shocked to discover the thief he knocked out is actually a hot girl. Bringing her home may not have been the smartest move, but he wasn’t about to leave an unconscious and defenseless woman in a parking garage. Besides, if she’s part of an auto theft crew infringing on his territory, he needs to pump her for information. However, Addison has personal drive that won’t be denied and she’s desperate to prove Fox’s group needs her skills. Submitting to his kinks in the bedroom is a hot yet complicated bonus.

Ten years after escaping from Cretacea, Jordan and Jason are forced to return there as the hostages of a militant group of Native Americans. There, they discover that the United States government has turned the subterranean prehistoric world into its own private laboratory. When Jason and one of the Sioux braves become infected with Organism Alpha, the group must reveal its presence in hopes that the researchers have a cure for this lethal disease. Fortunately, they are correct. Inside the huge complex which has been constructed next to Lava Lake, they begin to learn the scope of the military's agenda. They are only told part of the whole story though, the part that's ingenious and acceptable. The engineers have concluded that Jason's father, Nathan, was correct and Cretacea is unstable. They are involved in an effort to rescue the many endangered species which live there. There is, however, one species for which there is no place on the face of the Earth from which mankind would be safe; the Chill, the giant arachnid predecessors to the subphylum Chelicerata. Their plan is to transplant them to Europa, a moon of the planet Jupiter. It has previously been determined that a liquid sea exists beneath its frozen surface. The scientists intend to create an ecosystem like the one in Cretacea around the hydrothermal vents which have been discovered at the bottom of the alien ocean. In order to be sure that the Chill can survive in this extremely hostile environment, they have experimented with the Chill using gene-splicing. They've taken the most dangerous predator ever to exist on Earth and attempted to improve it. Unfortunately, by using genetic material from a highly classified source, they've more than succeeded.

Two couples, one older and one younger meet while each are going through a difficult time. One of the couples is able to minister to the other and lives are changed. This touching play, though about the serious subjects of trust and care and the inclusion of God in a marriage, contains some light humor. The waitress brings her own flawed perspective to the situation, providing more depth and character to the play. Only five people are required: one older couple and one younger couple and one female. Little staging is needed for this production. The play is approximately ten minutes long. Included with the script is a charming story about a life-changing event a couple experiences that comes from the author's book, "Hummingbird Wars."
