Artivist Shares Three Ways You Can Add Social Impact to Your Life

first_imgI must admit that the term artivist, while easily recognizable as a combination of artist and activist, was new to me when I saw it used in the title of a recent DELL EXPERIENCE at SXSW panel.Apparently, it is at least 10 years old, however, since it appeared in academic writing back in 2008 when M. K. Asante wrote, “The artivist merges commitment to freedom and justice with the pen, the lens, the brush, the voice, the body, and the imagination.”Five such creative people (pictured above) shared with us last week how they blend their artistic skills and passion for social good in the areas of fashion, photography and music; and, one had advice for how others can do the same.Old Becomes New FashionReduce, reuse, recycle is not always the mantra of the fashion-forward. But two young designers are looking to change that.“There’s so much waste. Anything somewhat old is automatically garbage,” Sloane Lenz said of the fashion industry. “I like to help people see things differently and that not everything is garbage.”This desire, along with a childhood spent in a rural area of Texas where there was no fabric store, built Lenz’s aesthetic for using unconventional materials. At 15 she created a dress out of 600 plastic bags to wear to a concert and today she creates custom pieces for musicians, artists and actors.Similarly concerned with reusing materials, high school student and designer Najai McKenzie-Robinson searches for old denim at thrift stores that she disassembles, paints and reassembles into 80s- and 90s-inspired pieces that fit today’s unique styles.McKenzie-Robinson’s one to watch as she grows her business. She is part of the Student Inc program featured in Inc. Magazine last year, and was one of four students chosen among 100 high school girls in the Central Texas area to participate the ChickTech Austin program.©Von WongUgly E-Waste Transformed“What I’m good at is convincing people to believe in stupid ideas,” Benjamin Von Wong joked when telling the audience of his journey from engineer to viral photographer. He shared that after his first financial success in photography, however, he realized that he wanted to do something with more soul.That led him to focus on conservation-related projects which brought him to the attention of Dell and an invitation to our Legacy of Good Change Maker Brunch at SXSW 2017. From there, he put his power to convince to work with an idea and some pencil sketches.“Let’s be real, e-waste is ugly. No one wants to talk about it,” said Sarah Gilliam, Marketing Consultant on Dell’s Corporate Social Responsibility >, as she explained that what she saw in Von Wong’s idea was an opportunity to make something ugly beautiful and speak to our hearts, as well as our minds.I gave you a preview of the results leading up to SXSW, but the final photos — and your chance to win one — can be found on Von Wong’s blog. It took a lot of “low-fi” tools to like chalk and a yardstick, and even a leaf blower, to bring them to life. Because he believes people are inspired by the process as much as the end result of this photography, Von Wong created this video to take you behind the scenes.Von Wong explained that this #RethinkRecycleRevive project all started with pretty humble beginnings, and that it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of many volunteers. Some even drove from as far as 12 hours away to help assemble the sets for these photos.“This idea that you could make a difference is something that people are really interested in and something they’re willing to put time and effort into,” he explained. For those who are interested leveraging their artistic skills to implement social impact Von Wong shared three tips:Make a commitmentFocus on you (not external things that could impede you)Take (little) risksWatch his full talk in the video below to hear him explain these more fully.Tourism Gives BackAnother photographer making a difference is Colby Brown. As his landscape and travel photography took him around the world, he came to realize that tourists never really know where our money is going. Are we supporting a local community with the dollars we spend there, or is it going to a larger corporation somewhere else?So he founded The Giving Lens, an organization that blends photo education with support for various nongovernmental organizations and causes spanning the globe.“I started giving lens with the idea of making it easier for artists to make a tangible difference in the world,” Brown said. They do this by taking teams of photographers of all skill levels on photo adventures to places like Nicaragua, Tanzania, Uganda, Morocco and Jordan.While trip participants get to see the world and improve their photography skills, they also partner with non-profit organizations to support the work they’re doing in the community. And The Giving Lens donates up to 50 percent of their profits to these groups doing incredible work.I’m adding one of these trips to my bucket list, even though my current photo skills are limited to my smartphone’s capabilities.Nature Sounds Become New MusicThe final social good artivist to speak at this event was the most surprising to me. I mean, would you expect to see the DJ at your favorite club use bird calls to make you move?That’s the unique way Ben Mirin blends his music producing skills with his love of the sounds of nature to inspire and teach people about the world.“My job as a producer is to be a vehicle for what is already singing around the world,” Mirin said. “We can use art to break down perceived barriers and allow anybody to get involved with saving the planet,” he said.A lifelong naturalist and musician, as well as a National Geographic Explorer, Mirin leads expeditions to record endangered wildlife sounds and samples them into his music to raise awareness.If you watch this replay of this event until the end, you can hear the results.last_img read more

Mossimo Giannulli loses bid to finish prison term at home

first_imgBOSTON (AP) — A federal judge has denied fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli’s request to serve the remaining three months of his prison term in the college admissions bribery scheme at home. Giannulli had argued he should be released to home confinement for the rest of his five-month sentence because he spent eight weeks under “extreme” conditions in solitary confinement after reporting to prison in November. But U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton said Giannulli failed to demonstrate an “‘extraordinary and compelling’ reason warranting his release,” though he noted that the quarantine was “longer than anticipated.”last_img read more

To be or not to be … paid: The debate over paying credit union board members with Filene CEO Mark Meyer

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr It’s a sticky issue for some, but it’s certainly a topic that has been debated over and over without resolve — yet: to pay or not to pay credit union board members.

Hey, credit union CEOs, time to put your money where your mouth is!!

first_imgOk, so now that I have your attention, we really need to talk about your priorities. It’s been a few years now that I’ve worked with only Credit Unions around marketing, and now sales, and I’m continually noticing one thing again, and again… there seems to be a desire from CEOs to shift your approach to growth, but a lack of real commitment to make this change happen.Let me be more specific. In a recent survey from my friends at CU Grow, they noted that the average Financial Institution spent $40k on their website, but the average branch construction costs well over $1 million, and this doesn’t even include annual maintenance costs!Now my agency doesn’t even sell website redesign services, so I’m not complaining here in hopes to line my own pockets. But my point is this… your website is: Your BEST sales person, Your branch that literally NEVER closes, and Your highest trafficked location, by a MILE!! So, what gives with these kinds of budgeting priorities? A website should be constantly tweaked, maintained and optimized; it should be designed out of the gate to convert leads, and sell, and this won’t happen with a measly budget and 3 years of stagnation until you touch it again! This shift is called growth driven design, and it works! (Google it!)And the website process is just the start of my complaints around Credit Union budgeting. What about marketing? I consistently see mid-sized CUs with only one person in the marketing department, or maybe two, if they are lucky. But these staff are constantly asked to do projects outside of their marketing area of responsibility. They often don’t have the time for or access to on-going training to stay up to speed on the changing marketing place, and they lack marketing budgets that are flexible and growing. Again and again I hear from CEOs that they want loan growth, member growth, member engagement, and to better connect marketing leads with conversions. But you can’t do all of this without making a real commitment to process, and that requires three main things: 1. Staff, 2. Budget and 3. Time! Here’s why…STAFFING CHANGES NEEDEDNow I’m not saying you need to go out and hire a bunch of new people, but there are two clear shifts happening within the FIs that I see having the most digital success. First, Cus need to train your teams around the changing consumer buying journey and how to better reach members and potential new members online and via mobile. This can include working with an outside partner for training or attending one of the many training programs put on by CUNA or other great national and regional conferences. I also firmly believe that you should encourage (require) staff to allocate 1-3 hours per week for online training of some kind, and then make sure they have the time available to make this happen. (And this means NOT over loading them with ad hoc requests of all sorts that fill up their days!!) Secondly, if I were a CEO at a Credit Union today, I would strongly consider consolidating marketing and sales staff under one departmental umbrella of business development or revenue growth. This is needed because marketing and sales teams MUST be more closely aligned to better coordinate the handoff of digital leads for sales follow up. And having revenue teams that work together to meet growth goals is the key! There should be absolutely NO competition between these two groups for staffing or budget. It must be a unified effort.BUDGET SHIFTS THAT WORKNow here’s where things get tricky for me, as I’m NOT a numbers girl, and would never claim to be. But I just know that FIs have the funds they need to make many of the changes I’ve already mentioned. The money is somewhere, it’s just about priorities. If branch walk-in traffic is down, then what are you doing to re-purpose your staff in those locations to better leverage their expertise and knowledge?Why not create a team of marketing and member service (sales) professionals that work as a unit, some in headquarters AND some in branches, and connect marketing and sales efforts with actual conversions? Give them a shared budget for digital ads, social media, a marketing tool or integrated CRM, and content creation, and then let them use these channels to bring in new members or launch campaigns to cross-sell to existing members?The FIs we see having the most success have done just this. They’ve created a large team that spans departments and brings talented staff members together in multiple locations. But this isn’t the status quo, it’s not easy, and it takes budget and time to develop.IT’S A MARATHON, NOT A SPRINTI was on the phone with a CEO last week and he and I had a great conversation about all of these shifts in digital priorities and approaches. And then he asked me, “well this is all great and I like it, but how can I grow loans now?” Truly, I was at a loss. See, I’m not in the business of driving short-term bumps in loan growth for an FI. That’s just not what we do, and that kind of short-sighted approach will not lead to long-term success.We are advocates of the long game, and do you want to know why? The average banking consumer takes 3 weeks to 6 months to make a new account or product decision! And they consult on average 8.9 sources of information along the way. These are big purchases for most people, and these kinds of decision don’t happen overnight.Furthermore, hawking special rates to get short-term loan growth won’t help your FI build a foundation for long-term success. In order to remain relevant in this age of Fintech and online-only banking opportunities, Credit Unions need to continue to build trust and rapport with their members. And you don’t do this with fly-by-night rate promotions. You do this by providing meaningful financial solutions and building real relationships with members. You do this by being understanding, and treating members with care and compassion. And these things can be highlighted digitally with great content, testimonials, and thoughtful campaigns.These are the characteristics that make CUs continue to stand out in today’s financial world, and these will be the foundation for building future success. But without proper staffing, budgeting priorities and a time commitment to the process, these advantages will be lost to big banks and ever evolving Fintech solutions.If you want to learn more or if we can help please get in touch!

Under his guidance, CUES … Web: Details Spotting an exceptional brand is easy. (Think Apple, GE, Zappos and Nike.) But building an exceptional brand can be one of the most overwhelming and elusive challenges organizations face, according to author and consultant Denise Lee Yohn—who will keynote at CEO/Executive Team Network in October in Las Vegas. Successfully building a brand takes leadership from the top. Here are four key steps you and your leadership team can take: Understand the importance and impact of a brand. Make sure your team gets the idea that a strong and differentiating brand is a crucial element to organizational success.Know your target audience. Define who want to serve and what those members and potential members want and need. Communicate this information to your entire team.Believe in process-driven action. Good leaders for strengthening brands see road maps, strategic planning and data-based decision-making as the pathways to a strong credit union and brand. Have passion for what you do. Employees who want to live a company’s brand look to leaders for motivation and guidance in doing so. If top leadership doesn’t endorse the brand and live it every day, staff members will be hard pressed to deliver it to members.I have a lot of background with brands, having worked on Procter & Gamble’s Downy, Kraft’s Ritz and Kellogg’s Special K. As COO at CUES, a brand refresh was among my chief undertakings. Today, as CEO, I’m focused on living CUES’ brand of helping credit union leaders learn and grow so they reach their fullest potential.For me, living our brand includes continuous learning. Look for me in the audience at CEO/Executive Team Network in October, listening to Yohn present “Brand Leadership: How to Build a Rock Star Brand.” I’ll be saving you a seat.last_img read more

3T Conference: Tourism and IT industry in Croatia need to cooperate more

first_imgTourism and IT as two growing and most successful sectors in Croatia should cooperate more, complement and use innovative solutions and products of startups, which will be more important in the future due to trends in the use of technology in travel and vacation, said the conference 3T – Tourism, Travel and Tech, held in Zagreb, organized by the media house Bug.The 3T – Tourism, Travel & Tech conference was held for the second year in a row, bringing together more than 220 domestic and foreign participants from tourism and IT and the IT sector, with the aim of uniting and strengthening cooperation.”With the conference, we are trying to connect the two most successful sectors in Croatia, tourism, which accounts for 20 percent of GDP, and IT, which is also growing and is increasingly contributing to economic growth, especially exports. Technology is the key to optimization and success in the tourism business, and the 3T conference provides answers on how to make the best use of modern technology and make business in tourism more efficient and better”, Said the opening director of the conference, Oleg Maštruko, adding that in the second edition, the conference is about 30 percent larger than last year, which means that the conference has found fertile ground.One of the starting points of this year’s 3T conference is the announcement in the Financial Times that Croatia ranks seventh in the world in terms of attractiveness for investment in tourism, which we consider good news, but also an incentive for stronger cooperation between IT and tourism, because no investment in tourism it cannot happen without investing in IT and communication platforms.Martin Reents, 3T ConferenceMartin Reents, an expert and entrepreneur from Germany, spoke at the conference about various ways of doing business and the possibilities that technology offers to tourism, but also what tourism expects from technology. modern tourists are increasingly mobile in communication and travel, using a number of applications to easily navigate destinations, find content that interests them, book accommodation and transportation, buy tickets and more.”In the world today, we have more than two thousand applications only for the hotel and accommodation industry, which invests and uses IT solutions for business. It is also interesting to see how the hotel offer changed from the 19th to the 21st century, from being only for accommodation and food, to the fact that today hotels are specially designed with a lot of content, and even technological capabilities that provide guests with certain experiences. , experiences and emotions, and what they, along with quality, are most looking for”, Reents pointed out.He added that hotels and other segments in tourism that invest in technology can achieve higher prices and revenues than those that do not, and that today there are almost no hotel operations that do not use some of the many applications to improve the performance of each individual department, which also contributes to competitiveness. “In tourism, and hotel industry, as well as in many other sectors, more and more for business and achieving the best possible results in marketing, promotion, sales, reservation systems, prices, revenues and others use technologies such as big data analytics, artificial intelligence, magnified and virtual reality, machine learning or ‘machine learning’, voice and corneal recognition, robots, digital keys and moreSaid Reents.He told Croatia, which he had visited several times before, to use the best of both sectors, predicting success after the coastal development in the development of urban tourism, especially in Zagreb, while asking if he saw a trend in tourism like ‘without internet’ in the future. ‘or without the internet, replied that it is difficult to expect more on a mass scale, but that it is possible that destinations or facilities will at some point offer that too, but more as a break from everyday life, and for a short break, .The 3T conference also talked about seasonality in tourism, emphasizing that technology can help in this big problem of Croatian tourism, especially in attracting tourists outside the summer through social networks and various online marketing tools, and presented the first electric car expedition across the desert. at the beginning of this year, Croatian travel writers and entrepreneurs Oleg Maštruko and Saša Cvetojević ‘did it’.last_img read more

10 types of hunger and how to control them

first_imgHealthLifestyle 10 types of hunger and how to control them by: – September 17, 2014 210 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring! Tweetcenter_img Share Share What your hunger really means?Is the rumbling in your belly for real, or are you bored, stressed, or just eating out of habit? Learn to decode the types of hunger so you can reach your weight loss goals.Your hunger is a mystery. Some days you eat what’s on your plate and move on, while others it’s like your stomach is an empty pit. Yes, it can be confusing. That’s because you’re grappling with your hunger (a physical need to eat) and your appetite (a desire to eat). Often, one can be mistaken for the other—and that can make all the difference if you lose, gain, or maintain your weight. To help you decode what your body and brain are really saying, you’ve got to learn the difference between the types of hunger—from real to boredom to stress. Here’s how.Real hungerReal hunger is the most important type of hunger—it tells you when you must eat! Real hunger makes you feel physical signs like shakiness from low blood sugar, a headache, low energy, or a grumbling stomach, says Susan Albers, PysD, author of Eat. Seems simple enough, but often we wait to eat until a hunger emergency rises and we scarf whatever is in sight. So be prepared: keep snacks in your bag, glove compartment, or in your desk. Need some ideas? Here are the best snacks for weight loss.TV hungerWhat goes better with The Bachelor than a bag of something to munch on? Too bad you’ll be elbow deep before you realize it. Call it eating amnesia. One 2013 review of studies in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating when distracted prompted people to consume more calories in the moment—as well as hours later. Albers suggests thinking about how hungry you are before you turn on the TV. As you watch, busy your hands doing something else (like knitting or paying bills), and skipping past commercials so the ad for Papa Johns doesn’t bring on a pizza craving.Bored hungerWhat to do? Well, let’s see what’s in the fridge, you say to yourself. “Boredom eating is something we all do,” Albers says. “One thing we have to work on is being able to better tolerate boredom instead of a knee-jerk reaction to try to fill our time with something.” Reframe boredom into relaxation time. If you need help figuring out what to do, list five easy ways to relax (read a magazine, pet your dog), five places you can go that you feel at ease (your porch swing, a quiet room), or five people you can connect with (your sister, a best friend), she suggests. When boredom strikes, pick one on your list—and find your zen.Hangry hungerIf you’re not familiar with the term, it’s a combo of being “hungry” and “angry.” It happens when your blood sugar takes a dip, causing fuzzy-headed thinking and irritability. And it’s worth getting control of: recent research form the Ohio State University found that married people who had lower blood sugar levels were more likely to act aggressively toward their spouses. When you’re hangry, you might reach for a sugary snack, since it’ll give you a quick pick-me-up. But for the sake of your relationship and your waistline, recognize what you’re feeling and then eat a healthy carb, like a piece of fruit or a few whole grain crackers, to restore blood sugar levels.Afternoon hungerHere’s a thought: 3 p.m. should be renamed “vending machine” hour because it’s the time we’re starting to think about how those Reese’s would be so good. “Your energy’s dipping and you’re anticipating the end of the work day,” says Michelle May, MD, a mindful-eating expert, not to mention you may actually be a little bit hungry if it’s been a few hours since lunch. The best thing you can do is plan for it. Make a snack drawer at work filled with protein-packed choices, since one study in Appetite found a higher-in-protein snack helped tide people over longer until dinner and reduced the amount they ate at their next meal. Try nuts or cheese and crackers, or stash a few Greek yogurts in the office fridge.Stress hunger“We’re less picky about what we eat when we’re stressed,” says Albers. So it’s more likely that you’re dipping your hand into a bag of Skittles than reaching for a container of Greek yogurt. One trick that can help: stop and focus on the future health benefits of your chosen snack, like losing 5 pounds or lowering your blood pressure. That can help your brain “override” its natural urge to make indulgent choices when in a bad mood, according to 2014 research in the Journal of Consumer Psychology. And while finding a different go-to stress reduction technique, like exercising, is a smart move, don’t worry if you feed your feelings on occasion. Another study in 2013 found that stress eaters may eat more when times are tense, but they naturally tend to eat less when things are good. The end result? No weight gain. So take a deep breath and relax.PMS hungerYour resolve to follow a healthy diet gets knocked on its head when you’re PMSing, a time a few days before your period where hormone changes may ramp up appetite and cravings. “You don’t have to deprive yourself. If you have PMS it makes perfect sense that you may want more to eat,” says Dr. May. Pay attention to hunger cues and eat a bit more if they’re actually there. “Soon, the symptoms will fade away and you’ll find balance again,” she says.Head hungerYou don’t feel hungry or tired, but you want to eat something. “Ask yourself, ‘what am I asking the food to do for me?’” suggests Minh-Hai Alex, RD, of Mindful Nutrition Seattle. Maybe you’re actually trying to procrastinate on a work project or you want to take a break and eating at least feels productive, she says. Use that eureka moment to decide if you really do need to snack on something.Eye hungerAlso known as “because it’s there” hunger. You walk into the break room and there’s a tray of cookies left over from the lunch meeting. Might as well take one, right? The key, says Alex, is to pause before you do anything. This short-circuits the automatic habit where you take a treat and eat it without thinking or enjoying. Then make a decision: skip it or eat it. If you do take one of those break-room cookies, give yourself permission to enjoy it. “Feeling guilty often makes us eat things really fast to get it over with—and then we want more to soothe those thoughts,” she says. Remember: one cookie won’t make you gain weight, but scarfing down three out of shame on a regular basis may.Celebration hungerEating with friends and family for a dinner out or a special occasion is a good thing—birthday cake, pizza, and all. “There’s nothing wrong with that! Food has an amazing ability to connect us with others,” says Dr. May. You only get into trouble when indulging is the sole way you celebrate a win. Instead of automatically meeting a friend for happy hour where you drink wine and share appetizers, plan a walking date and window-shop your way through your town. Celebrate your sister’s birthday with a pedicure instead of a big meal out. You’re feeling better already!Healthy Livinglast_img read more

Kanu wants Ighalo to fill Lukaku’s vacuum at Man Utd

first_img Loading… Former Super Eagles skipper, Nwankwo Kanu, believes  that his Nigerian compatriot, Odion Ighalo, can fill the void left by Romelu Lukaku in Manchester United’s attack. “Despite playing in the Chinese league, Ighalo is not a player you would look down on and say he is not a good player. “I believe in him and I know he can deliver if given the chance. Bringing him to Old Trafford means that those in the club believe in his ability, and we have to respect that. “I don’t think he will not disappoint because he will give them value for their money.” Despite missing United’s warm-weather training camp in Marbella due to concerns over the coronavirus outbreak in China, Ighalo is in line to make his debut when United travel to Stamford Bridge to face Frank Lampard’s Chelsea.
