GapKids Collaboration With Ellen DeGeneres Encourages Positive Social EngagementGapKids Collaboration With Ellen DeGeneres Encourages Positive Social Engagement

first_imgGapKids has partnered with ED, Ellen DeGeneres’ new lifestyle brand to launch GapKids x ED, a limited edition apparel collection and campaign that encourages girls everywhere to be themselves, do what makes them happy and take pride in who they are.GapKids x ED Campaign ImageLaunching today in over 25 markets around the world, the collection, and supporting campaign, is rooted in the same core values that Gap brand has stood for over the past 45 years. Individualism and liberation that comes from confidently being your most authentic self are core values Gap shares with American comedian, talk show host, producer, writer and actress, Ellen DeGeneres.The GapKids x ED campaign features six young girls who have excelled at skateboarding, drumming, robotics and entrepreneurialism, by being true to themselves, regardless of naysayers or outdated stereotypes. These girls, Alexey, Relz, Ryann, Bellatreas, Torrae and Asia, ranging in age from 7 to 12, star in the anthem film and campaign images which all provoke a feeling of strength, empowerment and pure enjoyment. Whether it is the desire to help others like Torrae who builds robotic hands for kids who need them or Alexey’s love for music and her incredible drumming skills, the campaign celebrates girls of all talents for being who they are. The print ads, which launch in August across the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, China and Japan, as well as select international franchise markets, feature the hero campaign “selfie” image of Ellen with the six girls. In addition to print, the campaign spans outdoor, mobile, direct, social, in store and digital.Well beyond stores, Gap is aiming to create an environment of positive social engagement. Using the hashtag #heyworld followed by a name, a girl’s friend, mother, father or mentor can issue a call to action for social messages of encouragement and love to any girl in need of positive support, cheering her on through the power of positive words. In addition, there will be a texting opportunity to receive inspiring and encouraging messages from Ellen DeGeneres herself.The GapKids x ED collection is built on Gap’s most loved wardrobe staples, but with an impactful twist, for girls and a selection for boys and adults as well. The collection prominently features two pieces of iconography: the lightning bolt, a symbol of empowerment, and the speech bubble, a symbol of self-expression. Both the speech bubble and lightning bolt are inscribed throughout the collection including Graphic T-Shirts for Girl’s and Boy’s ($24.95), the Girl’s Quilted Speech Bubble Bomber Jacket ($49.95), and the Adult Zip-up Sweatshirt ($49.95), among other apparel and accessories. The entire family is invited to join in on the powerful dialogue and celebration of individuality.“I know from my own experience that nothing makes you feel better than being who you are and celebrating what makes you unique. I think if we shine a light on real girls doing incredible things, that’ll encourage other girls and boys to do incredible things,” says DeGeneres. “This opportunity to partner with Gap and my new lifestyle brand, ED, is the perfect way to celebrate girls just for being who they are; and to encourage them to unleash their passions; whether it’s math, soccer, singing, dancing, or simply singing while dancing in their bedroom.”In keeping with Gap’s long term focus on youth culture, and the commitment to supporting social causes that allow women to seek out their full potential, they are partnering with select girls’ organizations that share a commitment towards girls and women, including Girls Inc (North America) and CARE (UK & Japan).Further details on the campaign can be found at Gap.com.last_img read more

Kim Jong Un open to third summit with Trump KCNAKim Jong Un open to third summit with Trump KCNA

first_imgSeoul: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is willing meet with US President Donald Trump a third time if Washington comes to the table with the “right attitude”, state media reported Saturday. Kim also said he would wait until the end of the year “for the US to make a courageous decision” on another meeting, after his most recent summit with Trump in Vietnam broke down and both sides left without agreement. Washington has blamed the February deadlock on the North’s demands for sanctions relief in return for limited nuclear disarmament, but Pyongyang said it had wanted only some of the measures eased. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USIn a speech to Pyongyang’s rubber-stamp parliament Friday, Kim said the Hanoi meeting had made him question whether Washington is “genuinely interested” in improving its relations with Pyongyang. “We are willing to give another try if the US offers to have a third summit with the right attitude and mutually acceptable terms,” he said, according to a report by North Korean state media outlet KCNA. Kim added that his personal relationship with Trump remained strong, adding they could “write letters to each other” whenever they wanted. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls”We will wait with patience until the end of the year for the US to make a courageous decision,” Kim said. Pyongyang has been careful not to criticise Trump personally while attacking sanctions on North Korea as an attempt to “destroy modern civilisation and turn the society back in a medieval dark age”. Trump and Kim held their first landmark summit in Singapore last June, where the pair signed a vaguely-worded agreement on the “denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula”. But the failure to reach agreement at their second summit in Hanoi has raised questions over the future of the accord. Trump said Thursday he was mulling a third summit with Kim ahead of a meeting with his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in at the Oval Office — a move supported by Seoul. Moon brokered the US-North Korea talks and has been pushing for the resumption of inter-Korean economic projects, but doing so would fall foul of international sanctions imposed on Pyongyang. “Our government will do what we can in order to maintain the current momentum for dialogue,” Moon’s office said in a Saturday statement. The day before Kim accused Seoul of acting as an “overstepping mediator” and said the South should “speak up” for Pyongyang’s interests. On Friday, KCNA reported Kim was re-elected as chairman of the State Affairs Commission, the North’s most important decision-making body, to cheers and loud applause from the delegates.last_img read more

The judges in the trial of Col. Theoneste Bagosora and three other high-ranking military officers at the Arusha-based UN International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) made their decision in a closed session today after defence attorneys had argued on Tuesday they did not received the trial briefs from the prosecution in time and in both English and French, the Tribunal’s official languages.The four accused – Col.

Rights of vulnerable groups must be focus of new development agenda SanRights of vulnerable groups must be focus of new development agenda San

The post-2015 development agenda must heavily focus on providing opportunities and protecting the rights of vulnerable populations including women, children and persons with disabilities, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of San Marino, Pasquale Valentini told the United Nations General Assembly today.“Today, women are still the victims of discrimination and violence in many parts of the world, also in the most developed countries. In the poorest regions of our planet, maternal mortality remains a challenge,” Mr. Valentini said.“The advancement of women’s rights, the elimination of all barriers to their full participation in the political, economic and social life must be top priorities for the United Nations, along with the promotion of their economic opportunities and equality in all sectors.”Children are also extremely vulnerable to violence, abuse and exploitation, Mr. Valentini said, noting that in poverty-stricken areas of the world, infant mortality and chronic malnutrition rates are unacceptable.He expressed his hope for universal ratification of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, its Optional Protocols, and their full implementation. The Convention is a universally agreed set of non-negotiable standards and obligations, providing protection and support for the rights of children. Its three Optional Protocols deal, respectively, with protecting children from trafficking, prostitution and child pornography; prohibiting their recruitment in armed conflict; and allowing children to bring forward their complaints to the UN if their rights are being abused.The international community must also strive to protect persons with disabilities as well as ensure they can fully participate in the life of their community. While important steps have been taken on this front, much remains to be done for the implementation of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in terms of adopting national policies to advance this issue, Mr. Valentini added.In addition to protecting the rights of minorities, countries must step up efforts to deal with natural disasters. “Member States must do more and give rapid and effective support to populations in emergency situations, both by investing in the most vulnerable regions to build the capacities necessary for preventive actions, and by providing them with the moral and financial backing necessary to cope with disasters,” Mr. Valentini said.He added that peace is an indispensable condition for the achievement of the development agenda, rendering dialogue efforts among nations a vital element for success. read more

…sentencing deferred to June 26Vishwantie Ragnauth and her reputed husband Nyron Thakurdyal who are accused of murdering, Ragnauth’s uncle, 39-year-old Sunil Ramsundar, at Patentia, West Bank Demerara (WBD) on Boxing night in 2014 have been found guilty of the murder at the High Court on Friday.The duo stood in the Courtroom of Justice Sandil Kissoon and had the unanimous verdict read.However, sentencing will be heard on June 26, following the presentation of a probation report requested by Attorney for the accused, Nigel Hughes.On that fateful Boxing Night, at Patentia, West Bank Demerara, Ramsundar was killed after he allegedly attempted to settle a dispute between his sister, his niece and his niece’s reputed husband.According to Police reports in 2014, the incident occurred at about 22:00h where it was alleged that Ramsundar’s sister was reportedly being assaulted by her daughter Vishawantie and Vishawantie’s reputed husband Thakurdyal.At that time, reports stated that the now deceased man enquired from his sister why she was crying, and upon learning that the couple had physically assaulted her, the man approached his niece for an explanation.Dead: Sunil RamsundarHowever, this reportedly turned into a heated argument, during which Ramsundar was stabbed about his body.He collapsed on the spot and was pronounced dead on arrival to the West Demerara Regional Hospital.The couple were later arrested and both slapped with the murder charge. However they continue to maintain their innocence giving unsworn statements to the Judge and Jury on Tuesday last.Ragnauth, called “Shelly”, confirmed that her uncle was indeed cursing her and that their fight got physical.

During his unsworn statement, the defendant expressed that after he saw Ramsundar holding his reputed wife, he went over and grabbed his hands.“I told him to let her go and when he let her go, he ended up falling towards the fence…we jump in the car and [Vishawantie] holler out to drive to the station,” he noted.“Next thing the Police told me go in the lockup… then a few days later, they brought this allegation of murder against me,” Thakurdyal, also called “One Eye” added.

Tabbys star dims againTabbys star dims again

first_img Alien megastructure not the cause of dimming of the ‘most mysterious star in the universe’ Citation: Tabby’s star dims again (2018, March 28) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-03-tabby-star-dims.html © 2018 Phys.org The team of astrophysicists studying KIC 8462852, more well known as Tabby’s star, has reported that the star recently dimmed again, and did so quite dramatically. The group, led by LSU’s Tabby Boyajian who discovered the odd behavior of the star back in 2015, has been documenting their findings on their web site. Explore furthercenter_img Tabby’s star has been under study for many years, as one of a group of stars known to dim—space scientists are interested in such stars, because in most cases, they have planets transiting them, dimming their light. But KIC 8462852 is different, Boyajian noticed—it dimmed a lot more than other stars did—at one point, as much as 20 percent. That was too much to chalk up to a planet blocking its light. Also, the star tended to stay dim for longer periods of time than other dimming stars. So she and others wondered what could be causing the dimming.Researchers advanced many theories, such as aliens building a Dyson sphere, but most were shot down. The most likely explanation, Boyajian has suggested, is dust. She and her team found earlier this year that the light that makes its way to us from the star is of different wavelengths at different times, which, she notes, suggest that it is passing through something translucent, casting serious doubts on the Dyson sphere theory. She and her team have proposed several theories regarding the nature of the dust, most involving the idea of planets or other objects colliding. One notable exception is the possibility of a comet that was torn apart as it approached the star.In this latest report, the star was seen to dim on March 16—a dip that Boyajian reported was the largest observed since 2013 (she and her team went back and looked at old Kepler data after the star was found to dim abnormally). By the March 22, the star was nearly back to its normal brightness. In the same blog post, she reminded readers that the observation was made possible by donations to the Kickstarter campaign set up for just this purpose, and while that project has ended, she is still requesting donations.

9 Essential Tools for Agile Product Development Teams9 Essential Tools for Agile Product Development Teams

first_img The primary weapon for entrepreneurs building game-changing tech to take on large competitors is an efficient, productive development team. The big advantage of startups taking on a Goliath is the ability to go from concept to market faster and more efficiently. On the flip side, startups are often working with smaller budgets, fewer resources and shorter runways, which means the difference between failure and success can balance on the performance of a dev team. Either way you look at it, the pressure is always on to deliver.For your development team to be as productive as possible you need to invest in the right tools. These are the digital platforms our product development team uses to innovate, create and ship.Related: The Best Software Tools to Run a StartupProduct development.Communication and managing projects are big deals but sooner or later work has to get done. Here are the tools our dev team uses to get the day-to-day work done.Tmux: This tool allows developers to switch between multiple tasks in one terminal., which helps productivity and general sanity. Tmux one of the best session tools out there. Think of this as multiple Chrome tabs on a single screen.Sublime Text Editor: Since developers spend a majority of their time writing code, a high performance and customizable text editor is an essential piece of tech. Sublime Text allows your team to build beautiful, functional code, with plugins to hack increased performance and speed at writing code, down to inline Guard tools.New Relic: Your software won’t change the world unless your users have a good experience. New Relic gives your team a way to track how your software is performing in real time. That allows you to troubleshoot issues and look for ways to improve your software every day.Wercker: To avoid bottlenecks in the development process you need to test early and often. Werker allows your dev team to setup automated testing and deployment of new features.GitHub: This gives your development team an easy way to store code in the cloud. It’s also used for in-depth code reviews and discussions.Related: 16 Entrepreneurs Share 16 Tools They Cannot Live WithoutWorkflow management.Is your team being productive and getting things done? An efficient development squad has a process for managing projects and ensuring that features ship on time and on spec.Trello: Based on the Kanban method adopted from Toyota, Trello allows you to visually track projects as they move from idea to shipped. Trello provides a lot of functionality for dev teams that are trying to ship features faster. One of those features is a communication thread specific to a project. A dev team not using some kind of software to manage and communicate about each specific project isn’t as efficient as they could be.Google Docs: Google Drive is an easy way for your startup to build an internal wiki. Our dev team has a standard operating procedure for testing features before they go live to users. This ensures that they don’t have to answer the same question over and over again about testing procedures and allows them to ship updates faster.Communication.Communication is always a challenge, especially when you have some dev team members working remote. As long as you have the right communication tools in place your dev team won’t skip a beat.Slack: There’s a reason Slack has experienced amazing growth; it’s easy to use and allows teams to communicate easily no matter where team members are working. They can quickly and easily bounce ideas off one another and ask for help if they’re running into issues with a particular feature or bug.Screen Hero: This screen sharing software works well with Slack (who recently bought by them). Screen Hero allows members of the team to share their screen in real time, and to allow multiple cursors so you can actually pair program on someone else’s machine.Talk to your dev team to see what tools they need to work efficiently and communicate with each other better.

His song “Old Town Road” was a viral hit that got online shout-outs from Justin Bieber, Meghan Linsey and Jake Owen. It’s got a trap beat, a Nine Inch Nails banjo sample, and references to cowboys and the video game “Red Dead Redemption 2.” While “Old Town Road” had debuted at number 19 on the Hot Country chart, Billboard says in a statement that upon further review, the song does not merit inclusion in that chart anymore. Billboard says while “Old Town Road” does refer to country and cowboy imagery, “it does not embrace enough elements of today’s country music to chart in its current version. Lil Nas X tweets that while the song has funny lines, it’s not a parody and he put effort into that song.SOUND:059080-r-510:48-(Sound of Lil Nas X, performing “Old Town Road”)-“(music fades)”-Billboard removes rapper Lil Nas X from country chart (28 Mar 2019)< read more
