Christopher Burch Pushes Technology and Fashion Closer Together

A recent article by Chris Burch, describes how technology and fashion feed off one another. He claims technology becomes fashionable, and vice versa. He uses devices like the Walkman and how they were fashionable to carry around in the 90s or how boom boxes were fashionable in the 70s.

 

He states that currently fashion designers are using the newest technology to make new fashion designs, because technology is so important, and this is what people want. Together the two bring a higher standard to innovation. He mentions Anouk Wipprecht, a designer who designed a drink-making dress.

 

Another designer, Terese Alstin made a system to protect bikers from injury by wearing a device around their necks that would pop open to prevent their heads from impact in an accident. When it is not open, it allows for a clearer view of the surroundings than a helmet does. He points to the fact that movement can become energy, so new clothing can harness this kinetic energy to power watches, mp3 players and more.

Burch stresses that fashion and technology can grow together and help with each other’s development. The benefits of one can be used to enhance the other. Technology can help create beautiful fashions that are also functional.

How Will End Citizens United Achieve Political Justice

The nature of American politics had changed from what it used to be when the United States of America gained its independence. Power to elect leaders has shifted from the patriotic citizens to a few wealthy individuals who use their money and influence to sway American politicians at their bidding. The change has come about due to critical changes in the United States of America Constitution back in 2010, something that is threatening American Nationals. For this reason, some members of the public have formed a pact by the name End Citizens United that seeks to oust politicians who do not have the agenda of the citizens in mind.

 

With the political action committee (PAC) being led by a five-member bench, it has gained momentum by seeking financial aid from everyday citizens, finances that will then be used to propel the agenda of the group forward.  By supporting many self-conscious leaders, the End Citizens United plans to decrease the power that most political billionaires in America wield today.Besides, the political action committee believes that it is its elected representatives that will help the association change the constitution so as to suit the needs of the American people better. Although the above mentioned is easier said than done, it might come to fruition when a vast majority of elected leaders have some sort of affiliation with End Citizens United. Presently, End Citizens United is only interested with leaders hailing from the Democratic Party, mainly because this society believes that it is the politicians from this political power that have the interest to alleviate the plight of low-income Americans in mind. PAC also has partnered with some good, wealthy and influential leaders to see to it that the 2010 constitution amendments are re-done.

 

Some months before the just concluded 2016 American national elections, PAC had raised not less than two million dollars with its aim being a whopping ten million dollars. PAC used its money to assist a select few aspiring senators, and House leaders advance their campaigns. Apart from individual donations, End Citizens United relies on polling, TV advertisements and direct mailers as a way of raising funds.

 

Also, PAC has presented its agenda to the courts time and again, a move that has not borne much fruit. However, End Citizens United is determined today more than ever to bring down American leaders who allow wealthy billionaires push their agenda through them. From the on-going onslaught, it is only a matter of time before the power to elect leaders comes back to members of public of the United States of America.

 

Ordinary items create unique gift boxes for Wengie

Wengie has a number of examples on how to create a unique looking gift wrapped package including using a scrap piece of cloth, empty oatmeal box, straws, and knitting yarn. The scrap piece of cloth can be used to make a good looking ribbon. Simply take the ribbon and tie the corners from end to end. Repeat again only tying the other corners. Continue the process until the ribbon has no loose ends. The bow created will fill the top of the package. Add a plastic flower by simply sliding it inside of the bow to finish off the gift box.

 

Use a hole punch on both ends of the newly created gift box so that one can add a ribbon through each of the holes. The ribbon will create a handle to carry the gift item. Wengie adds that using previously discarded boxes is great for the environment.

 

Gift wrapping can take the look of a 3-D effect using straws and yarn. Cut straws into smaller pieces and pull them through some strong. Take the straws and create an original looking designer box. Glue it into place when one is satisfied with their creation. Try using yarn on a box by wrapping it around and around on a box. Once the yarn is in the position one wishes, simple use glue to secure it to the gift box.

 

 

Waiakea Grows 4000 Percent

The competition in the water bottled industry is fierce. There is no doubt about that. Ryan Emmons, apart from being one of the youngest entrepreneurs in this popular field, was only 22 when he Waiakea springs. His first year, he barely sold 1500 cases of water. Last year, however, he sold over 2700 cases with ease.

Crunchbase reported that by 2015, WaiakeaWater had a growth of at least 4000 percent, which is incredible. In order too to celebrate what Waiakea spring has achieved, the beverage company will launch new manufacturing facilities in Hawaii.

Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water has a value of more than $10 million. Also, according to Forbes, the beverage company has a yearly growth of more than 170 percent. And thanks to such capital gains, Emmons will be able to continue with his philanthropic donations.

According to Forbes, since WaiakeaWater was founded, Emmons has donated over 500 million liters of drinkable water to poor African communities.

One of the policies of Waiakea Water is to donate about 600 liters of water for every liter that it sells through Pump Aid. For several years, Waiakea has been working with Pump Aid in order to help Sub-Saharan African communities.

What has made Emmons so successful? For starters, Emmons founded his beverage company on a triple bottom line platform, something very unique in today’s business world. This explains why Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water was one of the first companies in the bottled water industry to be recognized by The CarbonNeutral Company. Waiakea also only utilizes RPET for its bottles.

Not only that, but this water is said to come from the Mauna Loa. The water passes through thousands of feet of volcanic rock, which explains its mineral content.

Due to high demands, Waiakea Water will start doing business in two new continents. Currently, about 30 American states carry this company’s products.
