  • The Future of Self-Knowledge

    Arts & Culture, Audio/Visual Design

    The main thesis to my work is entitled The Future of Self-Knowledge and looks at the possible future forecasting design opportunities between the methods used in corporate futurology, ancient divination and predictive gene testing. The link to my research blog (http://www.fateinstitute.org) documents a range of future forecasting methodology research that was used as a sketchbook for me to create The FATE INSTITUTE and all of its service offerings.

  • Ganas de escribir de moda y dar a conocer el diseño emergente chileno y latinoamericano, me motivaron a crear mi blog de arte, moda y decoración Quinta Trends (http://www.quintatrends.blogspot.com/) hace casi dos años. Un espacio que se han transformado en una vitrina para más de 70 de diseñadores de Chile y Latinoamérica.

    Uno de los fuertes de mi blog, además de ser escenario de los eventos de las marcas emergentes, es su contenido periodístico asociado a entrevistas con los mismos diseñadores, lo que permite posicionar marcas y dar a conocer a grandes creadores de nuestro continente desde una mirada en primera persona.

    Hace unos meses cada vez me he abierto más a las propuestas latinas. De esta forma, he publicado entrevistas a importantes diseñadores argentinos, mexicanos, colombianas y peruanos. Porque no cabe duda que Latinoamérica la lleva. Con paso lento, pero seguro, se hace escuchar con propuestas intensas y novedosas, que traspasan su identidad cultural y muestran su esencia latina, vibrante y radiante. Este amor por mis raíces y la atracción inevitable por este movimiento que revoluciona la moda, me ha llevado a realizar un giro editorial en los contenidos del blog y a comenzar a investigar sobre sus nuevas promesas o "viejos" consortes. Mi idea es ir ampliándome a otras latitudes, no sólo con la idea de llegar a más público, sino también, porque creo que podemos aprender mucho de la experiencia de nuestros vecinos (cercanos y lejanos)”....

  • If there is a part in the area, or community you live in that is clean, chances are that it discourages or make people think even more if they want to litter. Have you noticed that some people have this same experience at work if the area is clean the customers won’t even touch it that much. So then I mess the area up, I come back in 20 minutes it looks like world war 3 just broke out.

    I have when to other stores that is connected to mine and asked the store manager if I could try my little experiment there. They said that it would be o.k. I had did the same thing a again but in a different community. Some actually cleaned you what they did one individual actually came to the front of the store and alerted one of the sales floor people. Which I thought was interesting.

    I had when to one more store tried my experiment one more time, and while I’m doing this I have no name badge for this one. A customer had dropped her drink and she stared and the associate I was standing next to. Then she said, “You are the one that will have to pick it up.” she put down what ever she was buying and walked out the store. And all I could say is, “wow?”

    So do you get my story. People tend to litter because they feel no sense of personal ownership. If it was their area or own personal space they would be jumping down your throat, or if they were at somebody's house they would respect it I would guess.

    So Think about it.

  • I'm a student at the Art Institute of Atlanta. My major is Graphic Design. I had a student come up and asked if he can see some of my work because he is looking for someone (a graphic designer) to do two logos for him. I said sure. About a week later I sent him some of my work. He email be back saying what he need for the logos. Later he called and asked about his logos. Now, Many people (Graphic Designers) told me never do work for free, unless for charity. So I asked him what his budget was on the logos. He said that he needed me to do samples of the logos before anything was set. I said that I can't do that. I explained to him that I can't do the work because if you don't like it, I wasted my time. That's why I sent you samples of my work. Long story short....He basically told me that I was scared and I didn't even like my on work. He said it was the way of the business and he need the samples first. Then he was going to let me know the changes and then pay me. I haven't talked to him since....but I just wanted to know what do I do in a situation like that?

  • There are several government and non-government institutions working in the Shey Phoksundo region at the district and village levels. Many more are emerging which provide technical support for the formation of community and village-based institutions and organizations such as Eco clubs, Mother Groups, Youth Clubs and so forth. Management skills and capacity, however, are inadequate. The traditional leadership structures of the region have changed over time and political leaders have overtaken the traditional roles of social, institutional and religious leadership. However, in some areas, religious leaders are still influential.

    The forests of the region are gradually being degraded as a consequence of uncontrolled grazing and overexploitation. Livelihood pressures and poverty have resulted in this unsustainable use of natural resources. There is a heavy dependence on NTFPs such as leaf litter, fodder, incense, wild food and herbal medicinal plants in the region. Resource degradation is increasing at an alarming rate with very low awareness on issues related to natural resource management. Interest in forest restoration programs is consequently low, further exacerbated by insufficient support and incentives.

    Alternative energy sources are gradually being utilized which require more institutional support and incentives from external conservation and development organizations. There is a need for more concerted efforts at exploring these alternative energy sources with the go...
