Balenciaga launches its beaten-up Paris Trainer - RUSSH
Demna Gvasalia is at it again. Inflaming the internet and with only a pair of particularly destroyed-looking canvas sneakers in his arsenal. Known for fusing fashion with clever social commentary, the Balenciaga creative director has left a ferocious trailer of conversation in his wake after launching a limited edition run of its Paris Trainer. Move over fresh white kicks, these tattered sets are here to burp in your face and ash all over your carpet.

Balenciaga is no stranger to the so-called ugly shoe. It's famed Triple S trainers launched the dad shoe trend and we've all long admired/loathed its myriad interpretations of the humble Croc. This time around, the Paris Trainer is getting a violent makeover, arriving in a limited run of 100 pairs and with gashes all across the canvas outer and "Balenciaga" stamped on the toe. Although, the most destroyed styles you're probably seeing circulate on the internet, are not in fact, for sale. Rather, they're an exaggerated version forming part of Balenciaga's current campaign. All of this is simply to say that the Paris Trainers "are meant to be worn for a lifetime". A philosophy that is both sustainable and nonetheless achievable if my past history of …
Billionaire Ken Fisher's 10 Favorite Tech Stocks - Insider Monkey
In this article, we will discuss billionaire Ken Fisher’s 10 favorite tech stocks. If you want to skip reading our comprehensive analysis about Fisher’s history, investment philosophy, and hedge fund performance, you can go directly to Billionaire Ken Fisher’s 5 Favorite Tech Stocks.

Tech stocks continue to face a bloodbath amid a rising interest rate environment. However, long-term analysts believe that the current rotation out of tech stocks is bound to end in the near future and currently there is an opportunity to buy solid technology stocks that have long-term growth catalysts. Some of these stocks include Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) and, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN). Goldman Sachs tech fund manager Brook Dane recently said in a program on CNBC that the current selloff in tech stocks has created an attractive buying opportunity.

Perhaps what differentiates an average investor from legends like Ken Fisher is the latter’s ability to not give in to the temptation of daily news. Despite the huge selloff, a cursory glance at Ken Fisher’s latest holdings reveal that the billionaire investor is holding huge stakes in notable technology companies.

Let’s analyze the Q1 2022 holdings data of Fisher’s hedge fund and find out which stocks Fisher likes the …
Jupiter In Aries 2022 Will Affect 4 Zodiac Signs The Most - Yahoo
If haven’t heard the hype surrounding Jupiter in Aries 2022, have you been living under a rock? In all seriousness, the largest planet in our solar system will leave the emotional lagoon of Pisces and enter the fiery realm of Aries on May 10, where it will remain until October 28. Aries is known for evoking new beginnings and encouraging you to take the initiative, making this a great kick off to summer 2022. Plus, Jupiter governs travel, business, wealth and abundance. If you have been feeling detached from reality the past few months, I give you permission to blame it on Jupiter in Pisces. Now that Jupiter is marching forward in Aries, it will bring you a surge of creativity and action, making this the time to think less and do more!

Rethinking Talent, Technology, and the Shape of Post-Pandemic Schooling (Opinion)
Until March 2020, American schooling looked much like it had in 1920. Despite new technologies, ever-increasing outlays, and wave after wave of reform, the rhythms and routines of America’s schools were little changed. Students set out from their homes to school in the early morning, sat in front of a teacher in primary school or a series of teachers in secondary school, sporadically used the latest technologies, and then headed home. Dress codes, popular pedagogies, the number of adults in the building, and the technology may have changed, but what students and teachers actually did had not.

Then came COVID-19. Schools shut down nationwide, forcing educators to think differently about educational delivery. The sudden shift to remote learning spurred new practices, leading teachers to discover new skills and strategies. It created unparalleled transparency for parents regarding what happens in the classroom and upended how tens of millions of parents interacted with their children’s schools.

The disruption born of this once-in-a-century pandemic could yield a once-in-a-century opportunity to rethink K-12 schooling. Closures rattled public confidence in local schools. Familiar routines were shattered. Interest in home schooling and other alternatives has exploded. All of this loosened the status quo’s grip on school norms, parental …

Canon and VCCP go big on creative flow in new pan-Euro ad

VCCP’s latest campaign for Canon, “Never break your flow,” is all about demonstrating how easy it is to capture dynamic, moving content thanks to the Japanese brand’s new camera technology.

As you might expect, there’s also a partnership with a photography influencer (Kai Wong) and a competition, as the camera brand does its best to see off competition from smartphones by positioning itself around “creativity and content.”

Susie Donaldson, European marketing director at Canon said: “We take pride in enabling our customers to create content which feels like an extension of themselves. ‘Never Break Your Flow’ is a true embodiment of our human centred design philosophy.”

Monty Verdi, ECD at VCCP London said: “Canon’s ‘R System’ allows modern content creators to enter that instinctive state of action where things move seamlessly, creator and camera shooting as one. We’ve brought the iconic Canon red line to life for the first time to dramatise this flow state, and the connection between a creator and their subject.”

The campaign will run for two months in the UK, France and Germany, with media by Merkle.

Only 157 days Opened out of 828 days, How Is This Church Now? - China Christian Daily
Since January 23, 2020, when in-person meetings were suspended for the first time due to the "COVID-19" pandemic, a Chinese church has gone through 828 days. During this period, the church keeps switching between the two modes: "double suspension of opening and all collective religious activities" and "resuming in-person gathering", with only 157 normally opening days. This is a church with more than 1,000 believers. Over the past two years, more than a dozen co-workers have been serving, and the offering is enough to pay the wages of the co-workers, and there is almost no loss of believers. How did they do it? Recently, Gospel Times, an online Christian newspaper, contacted the senior pastor of this church to share the story. A few years before the pandemic, the church had been busy building the place because of relocation, but the co-workers felt exhausted and in need of spiritual refreshment in the following years. Since the outbreak in early 2020, church co-workers owned many opportunities to improve themselves. The church trains co-workers from three aspects: spirit, soul, and body. The staff engages in spiritual practices by reading scriptures, praying, listening to God’s words, studying theology and reading spiritual books. Recently, they …
