Avaaz has Millions of Voices to Share

Traditionally speaking, democratic parties and organizations are all about seeing one thing happen, and that is permanent social change. The hope is that these changes are worldwide or at least far reaching. The only problem standing in the way is that most oppressed people exist as a minority demographic. And in this circumstance of being outnumbered, these groups tend to isolate themselves instead of networking to start some kind of political momentum. For the many global communities that are in desperate need of cohesion, there is the organization Avaaz (the world in action).

Hearing the collective voice and deciding together in which direction to take action is the modus operandi for this activist community. The key ingredient to the NGO’s (Non-Government Organization) operation is technology. With every leap and bound within the world of technological communication, Avaaz grows stronger and stronger. Starting in 2011, the number of members continues to grow to more than 10,000 in just half a decade. It is all about seeing the forest for the trees. The chance to make a real difference within a nation or state only comes about two or three times a year. However, when you work to change the minds and attitudes of millions of people in more than six continents, there is lots of work every week of the year.

That is where unity and accountability play very distinctive and important roles in the lives of Avaaz members. But most of all, unity is the cornerstone on which all other things rest. That is why the organization operates in more than fifteen different languages with understanding free-flowing between causes. You may never know where your most powerful ally lies in wait to meet you. With this format, the side of justice now has a new weapon against oppression and indignity. And, it is here to stay.

Chris Burch – Leading Visionary on Tech Fashion Trends of The Future

Chris Burch is more than just a successful designer, as he is also a leading visionary on all of the future fashion and technology trends of the future. He seems to have his mind set on pointing out the advances in the field of technology. One article references some of the many current advances in the combination of technology and fashion, referencing some great new ideas.


One idea referenced in the article is a airbag bike helmet which is designed to look like a scarf. It’s a fashion innovation which was created by Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin which is a better alternative to a traditional bike helmet. Traditional bike helmets are difficult to wear, so this alternative is designed to reduce the impact to a woman’s hair while still providing the same protection.


Another example of the combination of fashion and technology is that of recycling bicycle inner tubes to make shirts. This removes waste from the landfills, and re-purposes it for something more useful. Also included in the discussion of intelligent use of landfill wastes is a large gown from radiator copper. Top fashion designers and other technologists combined their skills and insights together in order to produce a great application of technology.


Christopher Burch is an investor in addition to being a designer. He is currently the CEO of Burch Creative Capital, which is based in New York City. He has spent his career pursing industrial design and disrupting traditional industries. He has invested in VitaminWater, and developed a hotel in Buenos Aires called the Faena Hotel+Universe. This was a $100 Million investment designed to re-invest in the hotel and turn it into a five star property.


His origins are much humbler: he built a career while still a student at Ithaca College. He started his path to success by selling sweaters door to door, at which he was able to successfully expand this small operation to a $140 Million global business. This success expanded to a fashion label with his wife, and finally an apparel company. All of his successes have built on one another, at which point he was able to successfully build and grow his career.

Sports Lawsuit

The Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC, or AHBE for short, has decided to pursue a lawsuit against the New Hampshire Insurance Company, who they are at odds with because of a contract breach made by their former general manager Danny Ferry. The AHBE reports that they were the victims of “Wrongful Termination” and “Workplace Torts”, as well as other things and that is what they were supposed to be covered for. They had a buyout agreement in 2012 which the insurance company refused to pay, which ultimately led to the creation of the lawsuit. According to the article “Former Hawks ownership sues insurance company over Ferry Settlement”, it states that “The lawsuit is also seeking an additional 50 percent penalty of the unpaid loss and attorney’s fees and costs.”

A man by the name of Bruce Levenson used to retain ownership of the Atlanta Hawks. He came to an agreement with several investors to buy the rights to the team for 850 million dollars. This price reflects on just how well the sorts economy is doing right now. Originally. Levenson bought the team for 250 million in 2004. The team went on to win 60 games, which was a new record and became one of the best teams in the eastern United States. Check out and for more info on Mr. Levenson.


Joseph Bismark of QI Group Talks the Daily Grind.

If you work in the field of big business then you no doubt know what it is like to feel the daily grind wear down on you day after day. Career business workers feel all of the stresses that big decisions, long hours, and short nights sleep can leave on a person and they no doubt wish it wasn’t the case. That’s why we were surprised to see the life of Joseph Bismark, founding director over at QI Group, and how he manages to fend off stress while handling a ton of duties. Bismark landed an interview with asPire Magazine, as reported on Reuters, where he dished out what makes his day to day grind so unique.

When Joseph Bismark was just nine years old he lived the life of a monk in the mountains of the Philippines. It is here where we assume that Bismark got a large part of what makes his life so special. The quiet simmering strength and spiritual backbone that Bismark uses in his day to day routine had to have come from his upbringing. However, this simple way of life was not what he wanted from the world. Instead Bismark launched into a career of marketing at QI Group and here he is spreading those similar vibes.

A day in the life of Joseph Bismark will likely start on a Yoga mat. Thanks in large part to his upbringing, Bismark has fallen in life with the art of Yoga and what it does for both his body and his mind. Yoga is a contemplative art form that subtly pushes the body in new ways, incorporating mindfulness and wellness all at once. Bismark is a Yoga Master at the Singapore School of Meditation and Yoga. He teaches students while also operating as a student himself, always yearning for more. He practices his different Yoga forms by listening to a pre-recorded selection of chants and mantras that help him to hone in on his thoughts.

When he isn’t working himself on the Yoga mat, Bismark is training his brain. Bismark believes that a busy mind is a sharp one and that if you don’t constantly push your brain it will become dull. So Bismark plays scientifically geared games on the website Luminosity for at least 15 minutes every day. These games keep his mind sharp and busy while also allowing him to lower his stress and anxiety.
