Dyne Expands Into Eyewear, Working With Fila

Christopher Bevans continues to spread his wings.
The founder and designer of Dyne used his skills working with technical fabrics that he applied to interesting sports-inspired silhouettes as well as complementary products such as eyewear, socks and bags.

In his spring presentation in New York earlier this week, Bevans offered a tight collection of T-shirts, anoraks, track pants and sweats all updated through the use of creative fabrics.

Case in point was a technical T-shirt created through a sublimation technique with a graphic design that Bevans said was “inspired by geometry and motion” and a pattern informed by tropical birds. A hooded anorak and lightweight pants with a drawstring waist sported the same pattern.

Bevans also showcased a fabric innovation he discovered in Taiwan that used recycled paper for short-sleeve shirts. 

The spring collection, called “Colour Theory,” included baby French terry sweatshirts and a raincoat in a reflective camouflage pattern.

Bevans revealed he’s now working with Fila on a special capsule using wool — the designer is a Woolmark Award winner — and has also jumped into the eyewear market. His line of glasses had acetate or metal frames, some with snap-on lenses. The glasses will retail for $ 220 to $ 325 and will ship in a

Anthem Is ‘Not Working Very Well’ Admits EA CEO

EA CEO Andrew Wilson has admitted that Anthem’s ambition to bring together story-focused gaming and looter-shooter mechanics is “not working very well”, but he vows that the publisher will stand by both the game and developer BioWare in hope of improving Anthem’s fortunes.

Talking to GameDaily.biz, Wilson said of the two player demographics Anthem attempted to bring together: “One was traditional BioWare story driven content, and the other was this action-adventure type content. About the 30 or 40 hour mark they really had to come together and start working in on the elder game. At that point everyone kind of went, ‘Oh, hang a minute.’ Now the calculation is off.”

Rip Up the Calendar: Men’s Show Weeks Are Not Working for Everyone

LONDON — Has the men’s wear industry outgrown its boots?
This is a golden moment for men’s wear, with flourishing sales, a fashion-loving generation of shoppers, and Instagram propelling sneaker-crazy young men into stores like never before. Despite it all, the seasonal men’s fashion calendars — with the exception of Paris — are shrinking.
The New York, London and Milan schedules have been shedding designers and brands for many reasons: Fashion houses have chosen the coed route, opted to show or present in different cities, take part in trade shows such as Pitti Uomo, or stage direct-to-consumer events, or digital shows.
Others have decided to take a step back and invest their marketing money elsewhere, refusing to be shackled to the runway — or the presentation space — season after season.
Christopher Raeburn, a longtime fixture on the London men’s calendar, has decided to pull out of the city’s spring/summer 2020 lineup, which runs from Saturday to June 10. He said he wants to explore new ways of engaging with his consumers and community.
“It is our job to disrupt, to capture and create a new mood,” said Raeburn, who last year was named global creative director of Timberland, and who continues to operate his

Remedy Was Working on Alan Wake 2 But “It Didn’t Pan Out”

Remedy was once working on Alan Wake 2, but the project never made it off the ground.

Talking to VG247 at PAX East, Remedy’s director of communications, Thomas Puha, said “We were working on Alan Wake 2 years ago and it just didn’t pan out.”

The studio has no plans to develop a sequel to its 2010 psychological horror game in the immediate future, either. “We’re just booked solid for the next couple of years, really,” Puha said.

Remedy is currently finishing up development of Control, which is due out this year. Beyond that, the studio has a team working on Crossfire, which Remedy has inherited from Korean developer Smilegate. Then there’s the ‘Vanguard’ team, who are laying the groundwork for Remedy’s next large-scale project. With all of this going on, there’s neither the time, money and resources to work on Alan Wake 2.

Valve Rumored to Be Working on Its Own VR Headset, Possibly for Half-Life VR

Leaked images and a new report suggest that Valve will soon unveil its own VR headset, separate from the HTC Vive it currently supports.

According to UploadVR‘s sources, leaked images of a VR headset posted on the photo-sharing site Imgur are, in fact, prototype versions of a future Valve device.

The headset will reportedly have a 135* field of view, putting it in line with the most recent HTC Vive display, and could come with new “Knuckles” motion controllers. Two cameras and integrated headphones also appear to be included.

Perhaps most interestingly, however, is that the same report claimed the headset could come bundled with a Half-Life game. This would likely not be Half-Life 3, but a prequel game, instead. Valve has not released a new Half-Life game since Half-Life 2: Episode 2 more than a decade ago.

We Tried It: Working Out in an N.Y.C. Studio That’s So Cold, Gloves and Hats Are Encouraged

 

What It Is: The Brrrn

Who Tried It: Grace Gavilanes, PEOPLE.com associate editor

Level of Difficulty: 7/10 The workout moves themselves weren’t super difficult, but something tells me the class’ colder temps definitely had something to do with my ability to withstand the fatigue for so long.

I didn’t know what to expect when I got off the train and began walking toward N.Y.C.’s new Brrrn studio. I had received an invite the day before to try out one of their three class offerings: Yoga-inspired Strength and Mobility Series, Core and Cardio Slide Board Series, and Battle Rope Infused Hit Series. As someone who’s eager to get back into her regular workout schedule, I opted for the third, a 45-minute class designed to improve strength and conditioning with dumbbell circuit training and battle rope exercises. I was sure it would help jumpstart my fitness journey.

The only catch? Each workout takes place in a studio with below-average temps, depending on the level of activity the class requires. In fact, wearing beanies and gloves (which can be purchased at Brrrn) during class is encouraged. The class I was taking was set at 45°F, the coldest of the three. The others are set at 60°F and 55°F, respectively.

Naturally, I had a few questions beforehand: What do I wear? Will I catch a cold? Will this make me as uncomfortable as hot yoga had that one time?

I started doubting myself during my walk over. I questioned the thickness of my leggings, wondered if I should have opted for a cotton shirt (per the invite email’s recommendation) rather than the lycra one I was wearing, and asked myself if I was even ready to put my body through such an intense class when the most physical activity I had done over the past month was lightly sprinting to a table in our office, where cake was being served.

But it was too late. I had already made it to 20th street, and was just around the corner from the studio. I walked up the few stairs and made it inside, which was at a nice temperature. I was greeted by one of Brrrn’s cofounders, Johnny Adamic, who asked me if I was looking forward to the class. “I’m really nervous!” I said within seconds of being inside. He was understanding but also assured me that I would be “just fine.”

As I walked in to the class, I was a little taken aback. It wasn’t that cold. But to be fair, I do think my reaction went hand-in-hand with my initial freakout. I mentally prepared myself for freezing temps and was met with a super brisk fall day. I felt good as I switched between two stations: battle ropes and free weights.

With the benefits of burning more calories and delaying fatigue (and going even harder for the duration of your workout sesh!), exercising in a 45°F fitness studio has been a long time coming. “Cold has been the backdrop of the human experience for millennia,” Adamic has said. “But we’ve engineered cold out of our lives. Now we live in these climate-controlled environments of 72°F from the time we wake up until we go to bed, but routine exposure to cooler temperatures is actually good for us. We are reuniting the cold back with exercise — where it belongs.”

I wasn’t shivering in class. I felt the hairs on my arms slightly raise during short rest periods but since we were constantly moving, I was comfortable and motivated to complete the moves. I felt energized. I probably could have kept going an extra 15 minutes.

The studio also provides “dessert” in the form of a communal infrared sauna. It’s the same price and length of time as a workout class, but the only difference is you’re experiencing warmth. Its not suffocating, but a welcoming dry heat. “It’s a nice way to chill and make friends,” Adamic told me of the eight-seater sauna.

The Verdict: As someone who’s pretty paranoid about getting sick, I was initially nervous about doing countless jump squats and renegade rows in a cold room, voluntarily. Spoiler alert: It’s been three days and I’m feeling perfectly healthy. Just really sore all over, which is totally expected after all those bicep curls and lunges. While I felt cool throughout the class, I was still sweating. Mission accomplished.

Marina Abramović On Working With Iris van Herpen — and Possibly Riccardo Tisci

ARTS AND CRAFTS: With movement central to her work, experimental Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen has created 20 costumes for an opera dance production of Claude Debussy’s only completed opera, “Pelléas et Mélisande.” Choreographers Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Damien Jalet collaborated with performance artist Marina Abramović on the scenography of the show, which opens tonight at the Opera Antwerpen in Antwerp, Belgium.
Abramović, who attended the designer’s couture show in January, told WWD the set is “mostly black and skin color, along with this incredible metallic material that’s like quicksilver.”
“It gives these reflections like water with the light, so you really don’t know what the material is made of, which is so great in the opera setting,” said the artist, adding of van Herpen’s work: “Her creations are more like sculptures than fashion, and she has this way of taking one idea and stretching it to the maximum. She is dedicated, she has this burning inspiration and is so inventive.”

Why Carrie Underwood Went from Working Out 6 Days a Week to Just 1 or 2: ‘That Just Kind of Has to Be Okay’

Only made it to the gym twice this week? Then you and Carrie Underwood have something in common.

Though the superstar singer is known for her sculpted legs, she admitted Thursday that she isn’t working out as much as she used to.

“I used to work out six days a week,” Underwood, 34, told E!. “But now that’s a little rare, sometimes it’s one or two times a week and that just kind of has to be okay. And it is okay because whatever I’m doing that’s keeping me out of the gym is important.”

And the Nashville crooner certainly has plenty on her plate. Along with her music, Underwood has her Calia by Carrie Underwood activewear line and a busy life with her husband Mike Fisher, who just retired from the NHL after making it to the Stanley Cup Finals, and their 2-year-old son Isaiah.

Underwood says she makes family time a priority over the gym, but when she does get in a workout, it often becomes a family affair — especially when Isaiah crashes her workouts.

“He probably will, 90% of the time, wander into my workout session,” she said. “But it’s nice to be able to stop and give him a kiss.”

Fisher will join in too, but even the former professional athlete can’t keep up with Underwood.

“Mainly, when we work out together, we’re just working out in the same space,” she said. “But I will say, the other day I was doing the ab wheel … and later on that day, Mike said something like, ‘I’m not ready for the ab wheel yet.’ ”

And along with her ab routine, Underwood will do sprints and lunges in her hilly neighborhood.

“I do a lot of squats, I do a lot of lunges, I do a lot of curtsy lunges, I do a lot of goblet squats, I use the leg press machine,” she said.

Gwyneth Paltrow on Working Out Almost Every Day: ‘I Definitely Don’t Always Feel Like Doing It!’

Gwyneth Paltrow has credited her near-daily workouts for looking young and feeling strong, but admits she’s not always in the mood to hit the gym.

“I like feeling good, and I know I feel my best when I exercise. But it depends on the day — I definitely don’t always feel like doing it,” the actress and lifestyle guru, 44, tells Women’s Health in the April issue. “I’ve made it a habit, just like brushing your teeth. That’s how you have to look at it.”

Paltrow swears by the Tracy Anderson Method for keeping in shape.

“I’ve been a Tracy Anderson fanatic for over a decade, I’m an investor in her company, so yeah, I go every morning,” she says. “I drop the kids at school, work out, go to work.”

RELATED VIDEO: Gwyneth Paltrow’s Favorite Things

In addition to a disciplined workout regiment, Paltrow sticks to a pretty clean diet to stay feeling her best. However, she lets herself indulge when she wants to.

“I have a pretty healthy diet, so when I’m eating processed foods and not watching my alcohol intake, I feel it. But at the same time, you want deliciousness, you want a fun — pleasure!” she says. “You’re going to have a baguette-and-cheese-and-red-wine frenzy sometimes, but you want it to be a choice you’re awake to: ‘I know this might not make me feel great, but today I’m choosing it anyway.’ ”

Paltrow also spoke to the magazine about how she deals with being judged.

“When someone doesn’t like something you do, or doesn’t share your interest in something, that doesn’t have anything to do with you,” she says. “One of the best things someone ever said to me was that the only time criticism hurts is if you have a judgment about yourself about that very thing.”

Jeanne Gang Designs ‘Working in America’

It’s been 40 years since Studs Terkel published “Working,” a book packed with 150 people explaining what they do all day – and why.

Jane Saks – whose father was Terkel’s friend – hasn’t forgotten it. In fact, she’s celebrating it by updating it for the 21st century. To do that, she assembled a star-studded team consisting of Chicago architect Jeanne Gang, Pulitzer Prize winner photographer Lynsey Addario, and National Public Radio.

2016-11-11-1478874765-1119228-WorkinginAmerica_CopyrightTomHarris_002.jpg

“My work is about using art and culture to collaborate and create new models of cultural participation that have social impact,” Saks says.

She’s created a three-part, multimedia experience designed to travel the nation’s public libraries. “Working in America” tells 24 stories of as many individuals – a veteran-turned-urban-farmer, a high school principal and a professional escort, among others.


2016-11-11-1478874939-8401470-WIA2016_22937.JPG

Working in America

“It’s museum quality but accessible to the people,” she says. “It’s not to be nailed to the floor or walls – it’s for multiple spaces.”

And it’s about issues of economics and equity – the widening wealth gap, access to quality education and the impact of globalization on people trying to make a decent living. “It’s about the social inequalities of our time,” she says.

Among the three parts is the exhibit designed by Studio Gang, currently on display at the Chicago Public Library’s Harold Washington Library Center and designed to travel to libraries nationwide.

2016-11-11-1478875022-8220567-WIA2016_000921.JPG

Working in America

“They’re very large photographs of individuals in their workspace – it really draws you in, because the photography is stunning,” Gang says. “There’s a library shelf for books related to work or labor – and that brings reading and history into the exhibit.”

The displays are designed also for a desk element to be inserted, so viewers can actually sit down and get engaged with the story of the people and their photographs. Each birch-wood display folds up for flexible transit – with soft leather handles that won’t bruise a librarian’s hand when it’s unfolded and assembled.


2016-11-11-1478875111-4242490-WorkinginAmerica_CopyrightTomHarris_005.jpg

Working in America; Copyright Tom Harris

It’s that kind of thoughtful work, driven by clients, users and viewers alike, that sets Studio Gang’s architecture apart from all others, even in a library exhibition on the nature of labor.

“I’m interested also in how work has changed today – with people working anywhere and all the time,” Gang says. “It’s so strong to put that in a library, where people are going to search for work today – we thought that would be very impactful.”

In addition to the exhibition, there’s also a radio series, co-produced by Saks and Joe Richman and featured on NPR’s “Morning Edition” and “All Things Considered” this fall. At working.org., members of the public can upload their own stories and photographs to an online archive called “Your Working Story.”

“It’s about participation – what you take away and what you give,” Saks says. “The more participation, the more alive it becomes.”

Surely, Studs Terkel would approve.

Artist Shot Dead While Working On Oakland Anti-Violence Mural

SAN FRANCISCO — An artist was shot to death Tuesday while working on a public mural in Oakland, California, sponsored by a group trying to reduce violence in the troubled and changing neighborhood. 

An argument broke out between the artist and shooter beneath a highway overpass around 10:30 a.m. as the artist worked on a painting called “Self as Superhero,” authorities said. The work had been designed as a collaboration between West Oakland middle school students and area muralists. Students were scheduled to work with artists at the site on Wednesday.

The gunman fled after the shooting and remained at large. The victim’s name wasn’t released, but police described him in a statement as an adult man. Police didn’t release a description of the shooter. 

“All they were doing was painting, trying to beautify a neighborhood that has seen its challenges,” Oakland police Lt. Roland Holmgren told the Oakland Tribune.  

The shooting took place in West Oakland, beneath Interstate 580 on West Street. Violent crime in the area historically has been above average. Recently, the neighborhood has experienced rapid changes from gentrification. 

Oakland has had 71 homicides in 2015, compared with 56 at this point in in 2014. 

Plans called for a 4,000-square foot mural. Portions that are in progress show children on an a tree-lined street of homes. according to the Oakland Tribune. It’s supposed to be the third in a series of six murals by the Attitudinal Healing Connection.

“The murals serve as a constant reminder of the importance of dreaming big,” says a description on a fundraising site. “Its long-term impact on our youth and community is something Oakland can celebrate.”

 The online fundraising campaign underway before the shooting sought to raise $ 10,000 for supplies and some compensation for the artists working with the middle schoolers.

Working Parents and the Welfare State: Family Change and Policy Reform in Scandinavia

Working Parents and the Welfare State: Family Change and Policy Reform in Scandinavia


The mass entry of women into the labor market, the decline of the male breadwinner norm and the rise of the dual-earner family have all profoundly transformed the societies of the Western industrialized world. This book argues that childcare has become increasingly defamilized or collectivized as mothers have joined the labor market, causing significant impact on welfare policies. As a result, the complex relationship between family change and policy reform calls for a rethinking of the relationship between the welfare state, labor markets and working parents. Rather than concentrating on the changing models of motherhood, Leira advocates the need to consider the effects of the gendered division of work and welfare on fathers'' opportunities to be supported as carers for children.

Stuart Weitzman Shares How Blissfully Amazing It Is Working With Gisele

Stuart Weitzman is so devoted to Gisele Bundchen as his campaign star that news about her retiring didn’t make him flinch for an instant.

“I think it was pretty clear that she was referring to runway shows, and since we had engaged her in a contract, we knew her retirement wasn’t taking into account the kind of work she was doing for us,” he told Glamour. “We didn’t need to make a phone call for clarification on that one.”

stuart-weitzman-with-gisele-on-set

Weitzman with Gisele on-set

Phew, right? The designer also made it sound like we don’t need to worry about the bombshell disappearing from the brand’s sexy-sophisticate black-and-white ads any time soon.

“I’m not sold on the principle that you should change your model every year and a half or so. We haven’t gotten to the point where we think our products don’t look good on Gisele, especially in the winter season when we believe very strongly in fashionable boots,” he said. “I’m sure there are other gorgeous legs out there, but we don’t know them. She shows those boots off so beautifully, there was no decision; it was like, ‘OK, let’s keep going. This is working out very well.’ Evidently she likes working for us, [and] she makes things very easy for us.”

Weitzman previously revealed to Glamour that it was Gisele who predicted the runaway success of his flat over-the-knee-boots. The super asked to take the pair she shot in home, caused a paparazzi frenzy three days later, and promptly reported back that he better stock up.

gisele-stuart-weitzman-over-the-knee-boots

To hear him tell it, shoe hits are less about luck than thoughtful prediction and expert naming. “I probably spend as much time thinking about the name as I do designing. That’s why the Nudist is called the Nudist,” he said while discussing the new super-high style Gisele wears in the fall 2015 ads: the AllLegs. And if shoes were a betting game, the world would do well to place some money on the new guys. Gisele has given them her endorsement.

“She loved this new boot that was about six inches higher up the thigh, so it was almost like a pair of leggings,” he explained about the super and the new boot. “They hug and stretch on the legs like a pair of leggings. Women are so used to that kind of attire these days that it was not radical to put on a pair of boots that felt like leggings. [Gisele] loved the new one that goes up a little higher.” He referenced shoe-selling 101—”the higher the boot the more limited the sale”—but said that universal appeal isn’t always the top priority.

“I like to get confirmation from the kind of customer for whom I’ve designed a certain kind of product. When we go to shoots with a lady like Gisele and before that Kate Moss, I’m trying to create a product for a specific kind of lady. ‘Is that model or actress that kind of girl?’ I like to hear what they say when they see it. Gisele loves clothes, she loves fashion, but she’s not a crazy fashionista. She loves new, clean, sexy products that girls can wear that way.” Where his recent tall-boot hits have designed with a woman like Gisele in mind, he pointed to the equally successful knee-high flat gladiator sandals as being done for Moss.

gisele-fall-2015-stuart-weitzman-campaign

Gisele in the fall 2015 campaign

Across the fashion-editor and consumer populations, Weitzman is revered for creating stylish shoes that are actually comfortable, no small feat when you think of the gorgeous shoes you might have painfully paraded around in. It’s something he thinks about frequently, with staffers sharing a favorite office tale of how he’s been known to stop women on the street wearing his shoes to ask how their feet feel.

“I’ve recognized for a long time that the final vote of anything I design is cast by you, as the consumer,” he said. “We can love it, we can make as many samples as we want and put it in the stores, but if the woman doesn’t say ‘I’ll take these,’ we didn’t guess right.”

‘Gilmore Girls’ Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino Is Working On A Musical

Attention Stars Hollow: “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has announced that she is working on a musical and a show for Amazon.

“I’m writing the book to a musical right now,” Amy Sherman-Palladino told moderator Danielle Nussbaum during her ATX panel on Saturday morning. “It just happened.”

She didn’t provide many details, only telling the crowd that it’s “based on a movie nobody would have seen.”

“I’m just going to say it’s original,” she said, stopping herself from revealing to much. “It’s original. Fuck it.”

She also (fleetingly) mentioned that she is working a new show. Since her run “Bunheads” like “Gimore Girls” ended abruptly and far too soon, getting more TV form Sherman-Palladino is great thing.

“I’m working on a pilot for the delightful Amazon company,” she said, before launching into a story about getting caught in the door on her way into their offices. “That’s what I’m working on right now.”

Humble Plumber Wins $136 Million Lottery, Still Wants To Continue Working

NEW YORK (AP) — A Staten Island plumber who won a $ 136 million Powerball jackpot said Thursday he wants to keep working — but also plans to “relax a little more.”

Anthony Perosi, 56, left his March 14 ticket pinned to the wall behind a basement pipe for six weeks.

anthony perosi
The winner, Anthony Perosi, on right, and his son, Anthony Perosi III.

A friend had told him where the winning ticket had been purchased, but she thought a teacher had won. So he took his time checking the numbers, which he’d chosen randomly.

“When I saw all the numbers matched up, I panicked,” Perosi said. “I immediately called my son and asked him to come over right away!”

Anthony Perosi III did what he was told.

“I couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” said the 27-year-old. “I checked the numbers on my phone and it has been surreal ever since.”

The cash value of the ticket came to $ 88.5 million. The father decided to share his winnings with his son, split 70-30. So dad gets a net lump sum of $ 38.6 million after required withholdings, and son pockets $ 16.5 million.

“I honestly don’t know what my plans are right now,” said the elder Perosi. “I want to continue to work, but will be able to relax a little more and not have any worries financially.”

“I don’t have words for it,” said the son. “It’s just unbelievable and a big relief; like a big weight is off my shoulders. I’ll probably pay some bills, take a vacation, and then really take some time to think and plan for the future.”

Bringing out the best in others is good business. When we bring both respect and interpersonal savvy to our work relationships, we do more than make people feel good. We enhance personal and organizational performance. And as the workplace grows more complex and competitive, managing our work relationships becomes even more essential and difficult. Now more than ever we need to work people smart. Working PeopleSmart describes the six core strategies used by people-smart individuals and shows how to apply them in the toughest workplace situations. Individuals who are people smart know how to open others up rather than make them defensive or resistant. They have a knack for diffusing tension rather than creating it. They set a good example through their own behavior on the job and can inspire and influence others with less developed skills. Working PeopleSmart can serve as your virtual coach to guide you through difficult work relationships skillfully. How do you deal with a critical colleague? Make your boss listen to you? React to an offensive joke? Get the resources you need? The authors look at over 50 real-life situations and offer people-smart prescriptions for handling them effectively. They provide coaching tips for each scenario and describe exactly what a people-smart response sounds like. As two psychologists with both organizational and clinical expertise, coauthors Mel Silberman and Freda Hansburg are highly qualified to deliver the message that we can emerge from even the toughest interpersonal moments on the job with dignity and grace. Where other books rely on typologies that categorize people according to their interpersonal styles and then offer advice on how to deal with each type, the strategies described in Working PeopleSmart are straightforward and universal. They can be used immediately to deal with any type of person or any situation, no matter how difficult or sensitive.

Where other books rely on typologies that categorize people according to their interpersonal styles and then offer advice on how to deal with each type, the strategies described in Working PeopleSmart are straightforward and universal. They can be used immediately to deal with any type of person or any situation, no matter how difficult or sensitive.

Rape Survivor: Working On A Sexual Assault Documentary Helped Me Heal

Ari Mostov says she was bitter that she felt pushed out of her “dream school” in 2013, after campus officials didn’t take her report of rape seriously.

Now, the 22-year-old is channeling her energy into “It Happened Here,” a documentary about campus rape — work she said makes her feel like she is making an impact and has also helped her heal.

Mostov filed a complaint in May 2013 against the University of Southern California that resulted in an ongoing federal investigation of the school. In the complaint, Mostov detailed that the university’s Department of Public Safety had told her she had not been raped because her assailant stopped and did not orgasm.

Records later obtained by The Huffington Post showed that the DPS had also labeled Mostov’s report as an “injury response” rather than rape, which she believes shows how the school kept sexual assault statistics low.

The increased scrutiny on USC began to subside in 2014. Some of the complainants graduated, while others said they became too stressed to continue speaking about their cases in public. Mostov was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and clinical depression. She had found university employees’ responses to her report of an assault to exacerbate her mental anguish, so she left USC behind.

“I knew returning to school, it was going to be absolute hell again,” Mostov said, so she took time off to address the aftermath of her assault on her own terms.

Mostov was a film and screenwriting major at USC, and was able to find some short-term production work after leaving school. Then she was introduced to Marjorie Schwartz Nielsen in November 2014, who agreed to hire Mostov to help work on the “It Happened Here” release and subsequent campaign and promotions. The film debuted on the cable channel Pivot earlier this year and began being screened on college campuses in conjunction with the White House’s “It’s On Us” anti-sexual violence campaign. It will be released on iTunes and Google Play on May 12.

Working on the film, Mostov said, has been “one of the most amazing experiences” of her life.

“For the longest time I wasn’t able to think about what happened, I wasn’t able to grieve,” Mostov said. “Not being able to return to the school of my dreams and all of this hurt and pain I was putting off — I was finally able to put it to work.”

Nielsen said the survivors she has worked with and interviewed came forward for various reasons — that their assailant attacked someone else, that they felt their school’s atmosphere was getting worse, that they were tired of hearing stories similar to theirs — but what has kept them involved is a desire for “not letting the momentum die.”

“None of them pursued civil suits against their attackers,” she said. “They took up activism because they wanted it to change things.”

Neilsen said the social activism component is critical because to actually eliminate sexual violence, awareness isn’t enough — advocates need to address actual solutions.

At each screening, Neilsen said she explains campaigns some colleges have hosted on their campuses to inspire copy-cat demonstrations, and asks students in attendance to take the White House’s “It’s On Us” pledge.

The “It Happened Here” team has had more than 130 screening requests for the film, including some from organizations in France, Canada and Bangladesh. It’s stretching beyond college campuses, getting screened at several California high schools. On March 30, Mostov and Neilsen spoke about sexual assault at a TEDxYouth event in San Diego. Over the summer, the team will plan for more screenings at schools in the fall. They said they are particularly hoping to get more high school students to see the film, so they can start engaging young people before they arrive at college.

“This affects everyone, and really, in order to stop the cycle, we need to get ahead of these behaviors,” Mostov said. She envisions a day when asking for consent is as routine as asking for a condom.

“We’re really hoping to help to teach people, especially the younger generation, that they have a right to advocate for themselves,” she added. “It’s personally something I really struggled with because I didn’t know.”

Mostov wants to send the message that “I am brave.”

“I am doing this, this happened to me and I’m not going to be silent about it,” she explained. “My story matters too. This is what happened. I don’t care if you don’t believe me, I don’t care. This is what happened to me.”

Since it’s his company and he signs our paychecks, we decided to let him take credit for all the great ideas we have. We kind of “hint around the edges” until he has the idea we want him to have.Did we get credit for it? No. He has no idea we do this. But it makes him feel smart, so we’re okay with not getting the credit. So, when he gets what we’re hinting about and tells us what he wants, we let him live in his own little world. We just smile and say, “Great Idea!” So far, it’s been working great. But don’t let on that we said anything – it’s almost review time. It’ll be our little secret.This gift certificate opens up the door to a world of Carhartt Boots, Cowboy Boots, Designer Knives by brands like Spyderco, Lone Wolf and Benchmade, and even top-of-the-line Computer Case Luggage by Pelican Why not add a message when you buy a 0 Online Gift Certificate?

Working With Awareness

As the new working year starts many of us are highly energized by our well-being focused New Year resolutions , typically involving less eating, more and frequent exercise and greater spiritual engagement and awareness. The corporate world has been slow to recognize that employee well-being accelerates productivity as well as benefitting the bottom line and whilst engagement and well-being are increasingly important to organizations, our current work practices engage our head only but typically ignore the mind/ body connection. We often still see well-being as an escapist idea; in order to feel well you need to get away from the office and everyday life and escape to a retreat or spa. So can we create a culture of well-being at work?

In a recent report on Wellbeing in the Workplace by the British Council of Offices more than a third (35 percent) of participants accuse their employer of not valuing their well-being at all. The report comes up with three starting points to help employers create a culture of wellbeing: care; control and collaboration:

Care
Nine out of ten (94 percent) employees feel a greater sense of well-being if they believe their job has meaning. From showing employees the impact their work has on customers or colleagues to proving their company is at the cutting edge in an exciting field, it has never been more important for companies to help employees understand what they do and why.

Control
The study found that nine out of ten (87 percent) workers feel their well-being diminishes if they don’t have control over their day-to-day activities. In addition, they want the flexibility and control to mix collaboration with colleagues with quiet moments of concentration to help them get ‘in the zone’. Nine out of ten (92 percent) workers claim that working ‘in the zone’ helps them perform better as well as feel better. However, currently over three quarters (77 percent) of people feel they are hampered by a noisy open-plan environment and a further quarter (27 percent) are frustrated by a lack of privacy, while more than two thirds (69 percent) would like to see relaxation areas in their workplace. Companies can meet this need for control by offering employees flexibility and choice in how and where they work and trusting them to decide their own working patterns.

Collaboration
Nine out of ten employees believe that support from colleagues enhances their wellbeing and makes them more productive. But building a collaborative environment as remote working grows means companies need to embrace connectivity to ensure that employees have the tools to work, discuss and innovate together no matter where they are. Contrary to many schools of thought, the survey reveals that virtual connectivity actually contributes to wellbeing according to more than half (58 percent) of workers surveyed.

The office environment can play a key role to support our wellbeing goals by mediating the way we undertake the day to day required tasks and activities. People undertake a variety of tasks and activities throughout their working day so having awareness and choice is paramount to effectiveness and wellbeing. People work best when they can move freely between quiet and more social spaces and have choices.

When deciding on the most appropriate space — including physical and virtual ‘places’ — in which to carry out a work activity, a variety of factors must be taken into account but it all starts with awareness of what you need to do and how you feel.

Awareness, Choice and Behavior is a dynamic relationship.

Working with awareness and intentions to engender certain workplace attitudes and behaviors, will in turn engender greater awareness. For example, at the start of the day asking the question ‘what is it that I want to do today? And in what manner do I want to do it?’ Starting the day with supportive intentions for the task at hand and avoiding the autopilot of going straight for email will impact the quality of what you do as well as improve the experience.

Having awareness of what spaces can best support the activities / tasks to be undertaken and determine the appropriate boundary, acoustic and visual control to support those activities is paramount.
Process Tasks: can sit anywhere, cranking stuff out, fine to chat; open work area
Focus / Concentrate: minimize interruptions, disruption; enclosure and quiet
Contemplation: cocoon or sense of space, views, greenery and outdoor options
Collaboration: face-to-face or virtual — size, formal or informal to determine type of space, level of enclosure and necessary collaboration tools
Social: ad hoc or planned and necessary amenities, catering etc

A practice of mindfulness can significantly improve our awareness and there are now simple and accessible tools to help us take a few minutes to step back, clear our head and decide who we want to be, what we want to do and where and how we want to work. I personally like the simplicity of the Headspace app but any practice where we consciously take control and choose to be in the moment, will enable us to work with greater awareness and create a culture of wellness at work.

Awareness of who we are being, what we are doing, where we are doing it and how we are doing it at every moment is the key to workplace engagement and effectiveness

Working Out in Japan

Working Out in Japan


Beer, ice cream, and socializing; thighs, abs, and pecs-Japanese fitness clubs combine entertainment and exercise, reflecting the Japanese concept of fitness as encompassing a zest for life as well as physical health. Through an engaging account of these clubs, Working Out in Japan reveals how beauty, bodies, health, and leisure are understood and experienced in Japan today. An aerobics instructor in two of Tokyo’s most popular fitness club chains from 1995 to 1997, Laura Spielvogel captures the diverse voices of club members, workers, and managers; women and men; young and old. Fitness clubs have proliferated in Japanese cities over the past decade. Yet, despite the pervasive influence of a beauty industry that values thinness above all else, they have met with only mixed success. Exploring this paradox, Spielvogel focuses on the tensions and contradictions within the world of Japanese fitness clubs and on the significance of differences between Japanese and North American philosophies of mind and body. Working Out in Japan explores the ways spaces and bodies are organized and regulated within the clubs, the frustrations of female instructors who face various gender inequities, and the difficult demands that the ideal of slimness places on Japanese women. Spielvogel’s vivid investigation illuminates not only the fitness clubs themselves, but also broader cultural developments including the growth of the service industry and the changing character of work and leisure in Japan.
