Worn Out Wednesday – Jason M. Peterson

first_imgToday we profile CCO of Havas and photographer Jason M. Peterson.I grew up in Phoenix Arizona, where I played in punk and hardcore bands and started taking photos, and my career in advertising started at the recommendation of a high school guidance counselor.I graduated from the University of Arizona at 21 and Andy Berlin hired me as Head of Art for Volkswagen. At 27 I became a Founding Partner and Executive Creative Director at Berlin Cameron, where I created the original campaign for Boost Mobile with Kanye West (early in his career), as well as working on the landmark NBA Campaign with Bill Murray. We also stole the Coca-Cola account from McCann-Erickson, who had had it since World War II—for Coca-Cola I worked on a campaign with Muhammad Ali, as well as a commercial campaign directed by David Fincher and starring Courtney Cox and Penelope Cruz, among other things.After selling Berlin Cameron, I was recruited by Jay-Z and Steve Stoute to be the President and Executive Creative Director at Translation, the marketing agency they founded, where I worked on campaigns for State Farm (the landmark “Can I Get a Hot Tub” campaign), McDonald’s (including the McDonald’s Super Bowl Spot Featuring Lebron James and Dwight Howard) and Target.Now I’m headquartered in Chicago as Chief Creative Officer for North America of Havas Worldwide, running the Chicago office. Because social media was this growing advertising channel then, I wanted to know and master it beyond anyone else in advertising. All our clients want to do is talk about Instagram, so I focused my passion and talent for photography on dominating personal channels, Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter (@JasonMPeterson on all).I like to stick to a specific aesthetic for my Instagram: monochromatic, with lots of aerial photography—usually showcasing Chicago and other urban centers. Black-and-white because it takes time out of the equation. I can shoot a great black-and-white image today and you wouldn’t know whether it was last week or 20 years ago. I’m always inspired by the photos Stanley Kubrick took of Chicago. Harry Callahan and Hiroshi Sugimoto’s work is also important to me.I love shooting Chicago from the sky, and I recently brought a few members of Soho House Chicago up in a helicopter to teach them how to shoot the skyline with their phones. I shoot with both an iPhone and a Leica Q—my work actually caught Leica’s attention so they sponsored me and used my photographs for the launch of the Q. Editors’ Recommendations My Instagram (@JasonMPeterson) has over half a million followers and has lead to opportunities (such as a short collaboration) with PacSun, shooting for Dom Perignon in Iceland, the Chicago Bulls, and ESPN. And last CES, Instagram hosted me as a featured speaker to top marketing executives in order to help explain Instagram as a branding tool for individuals and companies.In terms of style, my iPhone, Leica, and Polaroid Brightsaber (an LED lighting wand) are really my most important accessories. And clothing-wise it’s pretty much Jordan’s and all-Supreme-everything with a little bit of punk-rock edge. It’s about simple but curated style.As for my personal style:Jeans: Supreme Rigid Denim I think I have 20 pairs in various levels of fade, and I throw them out when they get too light or too beat up.Shirts: American Apparel black V neck, Jack Spade plaids, Seize Sur Vingt To me the V neck is classic, simple, and understated. The Jack Spade plaids are a little bit more unique than the average J. Crew plaid. I’ve worn Seize Sur Vingt since they first opened on Elizabeth Street, and I love the simplicity combined with the attention to detail in terms of fabric and cut.Pants: Supreme ChinosSee above.Suits: Tom FordI’d wear Thom Browne but I’m 6’4″ and Tom Ford accommodates my build. His suits are timeless. Shoes: Jordan 3’sI got my first pair of Jordans when I was 18—I had just gotten out of high school. I’ve been hooked since then.Accessories:Lexdray Mont Blanc backpackIt’s waterproof and the capacity is amazing. It works as everything from a day-to-day bag to a two-day travel bag.Outerwear: SSur hoodie, Moncler MontgenevreI love SSur because the brand mirrors my background, coming from punk rock to street style and photography, they make shirts that reference Suicidal Tendencies or Misfits, so it’s a cultural fit for me. The Moncler is just an amazing jacket, and it saved my life in Iceland.Favorite Cologne: Hermes Tea Tree. I use the deodorant and shampoo as well. Your favorite App: Waze, Instagram, StellerI’m obsessed with Waze because social influence when it comes to utilities really interests me. It’s a completely different platform, which influences a completely different audience than Instagram. Steller is a new story-sharing app where you can share a portfolio of images at once. I shot ASAP Rocky at Lollapalooza and it was great to be able to share 20-something photos at once.Favorite piece of technology: IPhone, Leica Q camera, Polaroid BrightsaberThe brightsaber looks like a lightsaber, but it has 5000 LED lights inside. It’s great for backlighting people at night. Next tech purchase: New Apple TV, Leica SL The SL is Leica’s new mirror-less camera. It’s the only serious Leica with autofocus, which I think will make it great for sports and music photography.

Suspected Naga militants on Tuesday gunned down Aboh, a sitting MLA from Khonsa West constituency, and 10 others, including his son and security personnel, in Tirap district of Arunachal Pradesh. The MLA was also seeking re-election from the same constituency on a ticket of the National People’s Party, headed by Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma. Aboh was on his way from Assam to his constituency, along with his family members, three police personnel and a poll agent, when suspected NSCN-IM rebels opened fire at their vehicles around 11.30am.last_img read more

MTVs VMA Awards helped by airing across several Viacom networks

MTV’s ‘VMA Awards’ helped by airing across several Viacom networks by David Bauder, The Associated Press Posted Sep 1, 2015 1:18 pm MDT Last Updated Sep 1, 2015 at 2:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – MTV boosted the viewership of its annual Video Music Awards, this year hosted by Miley Cyrus, with a little help from its friends.The Nielsen company said just over 5 million people watched the program on MTV on Sunday night, which would have represented a sharp drop from last year’s 8.3 million and the 10.1 million who watched in 2013.Instead, MTV’s corporate parent Viacom aired the show simultaneously on 10 separate networks. It was seen on MTV and its offshoots, but also on Comedy Central, BET, CMT, TV Land and Logo. Add in that viewership and MTV said the awards were seen by 9.8 million people, with the show still being seen in reruns or on DVRs.While that boosted the show’s numbers, critics of the strategy warn that if overused, it can muddy the focus of specific networks with programming that has little to do with their missions.NBC said its “Carmichael Show” debuted last week to 4.8 million viewers, the largest audience for any summertime comedy in eight years.CBS won the week with an average of 5.4 million viewers in prime time. NBC had 5 million, ABC had 3.4 million, Fox had 2.3 million, Univision had 2 million, Telemundo had 1.4 million, ION Television had 1.2 million and the CW had 1.1 million.Fox News Channel was the week’s most popular cable network, averaging 1.94 million viewers in prime time. ESPN had 1.8 million, the Disney Channel had 1.77 million, USA had 1.65 million and TNT had 1.58 million.NBC’s “Nightly News” topped the evening newscasts with an average of 8.4 million viewers. ABC’s “World News Tonight” was second with 7.6 million and the “CBS Evening News” had 6.5 million viewers.For the week of Aug. 24-30, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: “America’s Got Talent” (Tuesday), NBC, 10.34 million; “60 Minutes,” CBS, 8.53 million; “America’s Got Talent” (Wednesday), NBC, 8.46 million; “NCIS,” CBS, 8.39 million; “Fear the Walking Dead,” AMC, 8.18 million; Exhibition Football: Arizona vs. Oakland, NBC, 7.51 million; “The Big Bang Theory,” CBS, 7.25 million; “Big Brother” (Sunday), CBS, 6.73 million; “Big Brother” (Wednesday), CBS, 6.46 million; “Big Brother” (Thursday), CBS, 6.37 million.___ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Co.

Fight against child labour moving in right direction but not quickly enough

“We are moving in the right direction but progress is still too slow. If we are serious about ending the scourge of child labour in the foreseeable future, then we need a substantial stepping-up of efforts at all levels,” said Guy Ryder, Director-General of the International Labour Organization (ILO). “There are 168 million good reasons to do so.”The agency’s new report, “Marking progress against child labour,” comes ahead of next month’s Global Conference on Child Labour in Brazil. It shows that most of the progress was made between 2008 and 2012, when the global number fell from 215 to 168 million.More than half of the 168 million child labourers worldwide are involved in hazardous work. This is work that directly endangers their health, safety and moral development. The current number of children in hazardous work stands at 85 million, down from 171 million in 2000.Among other findings, the report says that the largest absolute number of child labourers is found in the Asia-Pacific region (almost 78 million), but Sub-Saharan Africa continues to have the highest incidence of child labour in terms of proportion of the population, at over 21 per cent.The incidence of child labour is highest in poorer countries but middle-income countries have the largest numbers of child labourers. Also, child labour among girls fell by 40 per cent since 2000, compared to 25 per cent for boys.Agriculture remains by far the most important sector where child labourers can be found (98 million children, or 59 per cent), but the problems are not negligible in services (54 million) and industry (12 million) – mostly in the informal economy.The report identifies a number of actions that have driven progress in the fight against child labour in recent years, noting in particular policy choices and accompanying investments in education and social protection. Other actions include the political commitment of governments and the increasing number of ratifications of the two ILO child labour conventions.“No one can take sole credit for this result, as many have helped draw attention to the negative impacts of child labour on economic growth, the future of societies and the rights of children,” said Constance Thomas, Director of the ILO’s International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC).“However, the ILO’s role in leading the fight against child labour, through its standards and supervisory system, advice, capacity building and direct action, deserves special mention.” read more

Lit candle falls setting Washougal mobile home on fire

first_imgA woman was treated for smoke inhalation Wednesday night after a mobile home caught fire in Washougal.Around 7:30 p.m., firefighters responded to 4501 Addy St. and saw flames shooting out one side of the home, Camas-Washougal Fire Battalion Chief Allen Wolk said. The fire was extinguished within 15 minutes.Two women and two children were inside at the time but were able to escape, Wolk said. One of the women was treated for smoke inhalation.The fire started when a lit candle fell off of a shelf. Occupants tried to subdue the blaze with water, but the flame set fire to a mattress, Wolk said. Flames mostly damaged one side of the home, but smoke damage spread throughout.“Junk” inside the old, dilapidated residence allowed the fire to spread more easily, and the home will likely be considered a total loss, Wolk said.East County Fire & Rescue aided Camas-Washougal at the scene.last_img read more

Moyses Stevens Flowers gains living wage accreditation

first_imgLuxury florist Moyses Stevens Flowers has been accredited as a living wage employer by the Living Wage Foundation.The organisation has committed to paying its 45 direct employees and any third-party contractors who work across its seven London-based sites at least the voluntary living wage rate of £9.75 an hour. This will include staff who work in both production and delivery service roles.Moyses Stevens Flowers is the 3,500th organisation to be accredited as a living wage employer in the UK.The living wage is an independently set hourly rate of pay that is calculated according to the basic costs of living. Employers pay the living wage on a voluntary basis, and the rate is updated annually. The living wage is currently set at £8.45 an hour for employees working across the UK, and at £9.75 an hour for staff based in London. The higher London living wage reflects the increased living costs associated with residing in the capital.The voluntary living wage is distinct from the statutory national living wage, which is paid to employees aged 25 and over. The national living wage rate is currently set at £7.50 an hour.David Cohen, director at Moyses Stevens Flowers, said: “We are proud to be the milestone 3.500th employer to implement the London living wage across our branches to boost each staff member’s annual salary and acknowledge the cost of living in the capital.“It’s a win-win for us and not only helps our employees afford to live with dignity but also helps our business by improving motivation, and retaining and attracting a quality workforce.”last_img read more

I am not worthy of Nobel Peace Prize Imran

first_imgPakistani prime minister Imran Khan attends talks at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, 2 November 2018. Photo: ReutersPakistan prime minister Imran Khan, addressing calls by his countrymen on social media and in his government to award him a Nobel Peace Prize for “de-escalating” tensions with India, on Monday said that he is not worthy of the honour.”I am not worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize. The person worthy of this would be the one who solves the Kashmir dispute according to the wishes of the Kashmiri people and paves the way for peace and human development in the subcontinent,” he tweeted.Supporters and officials of Khan’s administration started lobbying for a Nobel Peace Prize for him following his announcement to release Indian Air Force (IAF) officer wing commander Abhinandan who was captured by Pakistan on 27 February after his MiG-21 crashed inside Pakistani territory. He was released on 1 March.Soon after the Indian pilot was handed over to the Indian authorities, the hashtag “#NobelPeacePrizeForImranKhan” started trending in Pakistan on Twitter. Until Sunday, over 300,000 people had signed online petitions seeking the Nobel for Khan.A resolution was also submitted in the country’s National Assembly Secretariat last week for the same. The motion stated that Khan played a “sagacious role in reducing tension between Pakistan and India which was created due to warmongering attitude of the Indian leadership”.Meanwhile, the Pakistan Peoples Party, which had earlier questioned the timing of the release of the Indian pilot, expressed its sorrow over the ongoing campaign for the award.last_img read more

Blown Bubble Method Disperses Nanostructures Over Large Areas

first_img Explore further This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Researchers from Harvard University and the University of Hawaii at Manoa recently announced a new method for organizing nanowires and carbon nanotubes across large areas: blowing bubbles. Bubble blowing, or blown-film extrusion, is a well developed technique used in industry, such as in plastic-film manufacturing, where polymers are melted and inflated into balloons that can be collapsed and cut. However, this is the first time that this approach has been used in nanoscience research. The scientists suspended each type of nanostructure in a polymer-based liquid and created large bubbles using a circular die and controlled pressure. The very thin wall of each bubble (a few hundred nanometers thick) contains an even, well organized and aligned distribution of nanostructures. When an expanding bubble is placed against a surface, the bubble wall is transferred to it. This allows a thin film with a controllable nanostructure density and pattern to be deposited onto relatively large wafers, plastic sheets, and curved surfaces.“This ability is necessary for many proposed optical and electronic applications for nanowires and nanotubes but, so far, other methods cannot be extended to the large-scale assembly of nanowires and nanotubes on both flexible and rigid substrates,” said Harvard scientist Charles Lieber, the paper’s corresponding author, to PhysOrg.com.Lieber and his colleagues worked with two types of nanowires – silicon and cadmium sulfide – and both single- and multi-walled carbon nanotubes. In each case, they were able to produce bubbles with diameters greater than 25 centimeters (cm) and heights greater than 50 cm. The films were transferred to various surfaces: a silicon wafer 20 cm in diameter, a flexible plastic sheet with dimensions of 22.5 cm x 30 cm, and a half cylinder 2.5 cm in diameter and 6 cm long.The researchers say that by using larger dies and learning how to gain greater control of the expansion process they could potentially create bubbles up to a few meters in dimension as is achieved in today’s plastic-film industry. This means that films larger than one meter across could be produced and transferred, opening up the potential of new large-area electronics applications using nanowires and nanotubes.Lieber and his colleagues illustrated this potential by using a silicon-nanowire blown-bubble film to create a large array of nanowire-based transistors on 7.5-cm-diameter plastic sheets. The transistors’ properties and performance compare to, and often exceed, those created using other assembly methods. By using higher performance nanowires, the scientists expect that significant improvements are possible.“Our method has the added advantage of being a more straightforward and efficient approach than other techniques in terms of making functional nanodevices over large areas,” said Lieber.The scientists do concede that the nanowire density and wire-to-wire distance of the silicon-nanowire film currently achieved are “modest,” but can be further increased by preparing a higher concentration polymer suspension of nanostructures. However, they say, those values are still useful for some applications, such as biological sensor arrays and display screens.This research is discussed in the May 27 online edition of Nature Nanotechnology.Citation: Guihua Yu, Anyuan Cao and Charles M.

Dress to impress No we dont

first_imgHow do you define sexiness? What is sexy?, ‘From an infectious smile of  Madhu Bala to the poised grace of Zennat Aman; dancing swirls of Madhuri Dixit and to the zero figure of Kareena Kapoor, everything is sexy! It has nothing really to do with how they dress up,’ said fashion critic and journalist, Reena Dhaka during a discussion in Oxford bookstore.‘Is being sexy anti-sexist?’, ‘Does dressing up in a sexy manner define a woman’s mindset?’ were some of the pertinent questions that were raised during the engaging conversation. An audio-visual presentation seeking responses from various women with different backgrounds attempted  to answer these questions. They all were asked one question and that was, if they dress-up for others? The unanimous answer was an outright ‘No’. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The discussion attracted quite an ethusiastic crowd who were of the opinion that they dressed-up for themselves and no one else.The key speakers of the conversation,  fashion designer, Rina Dhaka and Vinita Dawra Nangia discussed how dressing-up sexily does not really mean that one is easy or available. Nangia further said, ‘To even ask such a question would hint at sexism.’ The rape victims in this fairly sexist society are often slapped with a counter-argument as to how they deserve what hapened to them because they asked for it. When you ask them how? They will promptly reply with, ‘Of course, because of the clothes they wore.’ No one asks for violence, no one wants to get beaten up or raped, no matter what you wear. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixDhaka said being a woman she has to confirm to various roles in a day and is expected to dress aprropriately for all the ocassions. She asked, ‘How can you expect a woman to dress appropriately throughout the day for varied ocassions. Isn’t that hectic? To dress three to four times a day? Just because people think it’s inappropriate to step out in a dress outside in the public?’ She said that dressing-up has nothing to do with sexiness. The definition has changed. It’s all in one’s attitude and the way they feel they are, not the way they dress. However, Dhaka’s ‘When in Rome, do like Romans’ comment did not strike well. She said, ‘In India,  it is very important to select a dress according to the place and environment. There is no harm in carrying a shrug or a scarf, which you can easily take off once surrounded with a like minded people.’ The question this comment raises and remained unaswered was,  why does one need to carry a scarf around? Instead of being preventive, why can’t we strive to change the mindset which compels us to carry a scarf with us?last_img read more

MonnetJindalTata JV wins Odishas Mandakini coal mine

first_imgMandakini block alone would contribute Rs 18,712 crore. “Mandakini Exploration and Mining Ltd bids the highest,” tweeted Coal Secretary Anil Swarup. As per a spokesperson of Monnet Ispat, Mandakini Exploration is a joint venture between Monnet and Jindal Photo. As per officials, the bid closed at Rs 650/tonne.Bidding for Mandakini block, meant for the power sector and having one of the largest extractable reserves at 287.88 million tonne (MT), began at 11 am at Re 1 and continued till 7.35 pm with highest bid coming at Rs 650/tonne. The auction mode was reverse bidding for this mine.

The companies in race for Mandakini mine on Thursday included Adani Power, Adani Power Maharashtra, GMR Mining and Energy, Jindal Power and Wigeon Commotrade.Earlier in the day, Trimula Industries Ltd bagged Meral mine for non-power sector in Jharkhand quoting Rs 727/tonne which in turn will fetch the government Rs 921 crore. Also Read – Lanka launches ambitious tourism programme to woo Indian tourists“Meral coal block closes at (Rs) 727 (per tonne),” Coal Secretary Anil Swarup tweeted. Trimula bagged the mine by outbidding two companies — Easternrange Coal Mining Pvt Ltd and Usha Martin Ltd. Meral mine, earlier alloted to Abhijeet Infrastructure Pvt Ltd, is in Palamau district of Jharkhand and has extractable reserves of 12.67 million tonnes. The amount of proceeds has been calculated based on extractable reserves and highest bid price. Both the mines were put on auction on the second day of the second tranche of bidding. Adani Power, Usha Martin and JSW Steel bagged a total four mines in the second leg of auction that began on Thursday.Under the second leg of auction, the government has put at least 15 blocks, which are under ready-for-production category. The auction proceeds from the first lot of 19 mines is over Rs one lakh crore. The auction follows the Supreme Court’s decision last year to cancel allocation of 204 coal mines. On account of Holi on Friday, there would be no auction of the mines. But on March 7, three blocks — Tara (for power sector) and Nerad Malegaon and Dumri mines (for non- power sector) — would be on offer. The firms vying for Tara mine in Chhattisgarh are Adani Power, Adani Power Rajasthan, Adani Power Maharashtra, Athena Chhattisgarh Power Ltd, Jindal Power Ltd,JSW Energy Ltd, KSK Mahanadi Power Co Ltd, Lanco Amarkantak Power Ltd and RattanIndia Nasik Power Ltd. SBICaps to make presentation on auction rulesSBI Capital Markets is scheduled to make a detailed presentation early next week before senior officials of the Centre and the states about proposed rules for auction of mines and bidding parameters for selection.The government roped in the investment banker around 15 days after President Pranab Mukherjee promulgated the Mines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) Amendment Ordinance, 2015, in the second week of January to suggest the rules for auction and bidding parameters.The ordinance paved the way for introduction of the auctioning route for allocation of mines. “SBI Capital Markets will make a presentation about the salient features of proposed rules for implementing provision MMDR Amendment Ordinance, 2015 next Monday at the Quarterly meeting of the Coordination-cum-Empowered Committee (CEC),” a government official said. The Ordinance, which has already been passed in Lok Sabha in the form of a Bill, prescribe the Centre to stipulate the terms and conditions and the procedures subject to which the auction would be conducted for allocation of all mines.

first_img CoreLogic Forecast Home Prices 2014-07-01 Tory Barringer in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Headlines, News Share July 1, 2014 459 Views center_img One of the country’s leading home price measures continued to push up in May, though gains have now slowed to a single-digit annual pace.Property analytics firm CoreLogic reported an 8.8 percent year-over-year increase in its May Home Price Index (HPI), marking 27 straight months of annual improvement. Taking out distressed sales, the HPI was up 8.1 percent year-on-year.May’s figure represents another slowdown in the annual rate of home price gains, which are now down almost 3 percentage points compared to only a few months ago.”The pace of home price appreciation is cooling off quickly as the weather warms up,” said Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic. “The influences of modestly rising inventory and less-than-expected demand are causing price growth to moderate toward our forecasted expectations.”As of the latest report, half of all states and the District of Columbia are now at or within 10 percent of their peak home price appreciation, CoreLogic reports. Meanwhile, 10 states have reached new peaks, including Alaska, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Colorado, Texas, and New York.Looking ahead, the company anticipates home prices (including distressed sales) will rise another 6.0 percent from May 2014 to May 2015, with a 0.8 percent monthly bump predicted for June—down from 1.4 percent in May.The slowdown in price increases isn’t all bad, says CoreLogic CEO Anand Nallathambi, especially as affordability becomes a greater concern.”While the rapid rise in prices over the past two years has lifted many homeowners out of negative equity, it has also become a negative factor in buying decisions for prospective purchasers weighing affordability concerns,” Nallathambi. “As we move ahead, a moderation in home price increases over the next twelve months should help cool things down a bit and keep the housing recovery going.” Home Prices Pick Up Another 8.8% in Maylast_img read more
