Keith Mann: Uncommonly Kind12.28.16

It is interesting that Keith Mann is fighting for the Uncommon School Districts, which is something that means the world to him. It is interesting because it takes uncommon people to do uncommon things in today’s world. That is how results happen and that is how change happens. If people did things the regular way or the ordinary way, things would stay the same. As the old expression goes, insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Keith Mann knows it takes an uncommon approach to get to where he wants things to be for the young adults that wish to attend a four year college.

 

First and foremost, it is great that kids that come from lower-income situations want to better themselves. In many cases, kids find themselves on the streets or in prison. The fact they don’t want to fall down that path and they want to pursue an education speaks volumes about the type of kids they are. That is why Keith Mann has no issue helping them and being there for them. He knows they appreciate it and he knows they are not going to let it go to waste.

 

Since Keith Mann is with Dynamics Search Partners, he has some power and some influence. Unlike some people, he uses that power and influence for good. He holds fundraisers that raise over twenty-two thousand dollars for an upcoming school to be opened in the Uncommon School Districts and for testing. He knows this will make a real difference and really set these kids off on the right path.

 

That is why Keith Mann is uncommonly kind. It is not every day that someone hears stories about people doing things like this. The thing about Keith Mann is he does not want to make it about himself and he does not want people to praise him or shower him with attention. His focus is on the kids and it will always be on the kids. That is what matters and that is where his sole focus lies in making sure they can have that education.

Chris Burch on the Intermarriage between Fashion and Technology12.17.16

Fashion is merely an avenue for one to express themselves creatively, through clothing and accessories. But when fashion merges with technology, it opens a door to untapped opportunities according to Chris Burch.

 

The world has seen several trends come and go, but two avenues that will always stay in the limelight are fashion and technology. And now for the first time, fashion designers have found a way to borrow from technology to provide more from our normal clothes or accessories. Today, we can talk about fashion as a way to protect human life, provide convenient energy sources or even make communication easier.

 

As Chris Burch observes, fashion can apply science to tap into the energy of movement (kinetic). We have already seen sneakers that are self-lacing and even adapt to the wearer’s foot size for maximum comfort. Now there is a future possibility that your training shoes will be charging your iPod as you take your morning jogs.

 

How about safety? Can fashion be employed to protect lives? It’s a big yes as Burch affirms. Some fashion designers have already designed a neckpiece that will soon replace the cyclist’s helmet. This neckpiece conceals a self-launching airbag that protects the head during a fall. Or we can have gloves that glow to give specific signal directions whether in foggy or smoky conditions.

 

As fashion continues to find relevance in trending technological advancements, Chris Burch is confident that the relevance of technology will always be certain. But it won’t always be a one-way street, technology will also require the help of fashion to make some of its discoveries acceptable to the public. We have seen the trend with smart watches and the Google glasses.
