Kendrick Lamar won the Pulitzer Prize in music for his album “Damn” on Monday afternoon. He is the first nonclassical or jazz artist to win the award.

The award is given “for distinguished musical composition by an American that has had its first performance or recording in the United States during the year,” according to the Pulitzer Prize Board.

Released on April 14, 2017, “Damn” was described by the Pulitzer committee as a “virtuosic song collection unified by its vernacular authenticity and rhythmic dynamism that offers affecting vignettes capturing the complexity of modern African-American life.”

5 Ways the Ad World Has Changed in the Last 10 Years

When Verizon Wireless wanted to drive more foot traffic to its retail stores last winter, the brand supplemented traditional advertising an onsite program called Stop Motion Studio.

Customers could create short, animated videos, decorated with tiny snowmen, reindeer, Santas and other props, to use as their holiday greeting. While they were playing mini-movie mogul, they were also learning about their phone’s capabilities, accessories and add-ons.

This wasn’t your typical telecom commercial. Engineered by ad agency SapientNitro, it touted Verizon’s shop as a cool, fun destination. In so doing, it promoted the brand in ways that a 30-second TV spot never could. Of the consumers who participated, 95% said they learned something new about their phone, and would return to the store for more workshops. A whopping 100% posted their videos to Vine.

Candice Ashby, Angela McRobbie and Exclusivity

When I was completing the third year of my undergraduate degree in Media and Modern Literature, I remember listening to the lectures of one of my professors like a wide-eyed school girl.

Angela McRobbie, one of the most prominent cultural theorists and feminists in the UK, was the epitome of self confidence and female empowerment as far as I was concerned.

I’m sure she had no idea that I was hanging on her every word though being a mature student myself, I did in fact find the courage to talk to her from time to time.  Yet, what struck me as mind-blowing about McRobbie was her unrelenting effort to identify and discuss the damaging effects of social exclusivity.  As an African American woman, exclusivity was not a subject I was unfamiliar with.

When The Media Treats White Suspects And Killers Better Than Black Victims

FROM

Huffpost Black Voices

.
On the afternoon of Aug. 9, a police officer fatally shot an unarmed, black teenager, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri. Details remain in dispute. Eyewitnesses have said that Brown was compliant with police and was shot while he had his hands up. Police maintain that the 18-year-old had assaulted an officer and was reaching for the officer’s gun. One thing clear, however, is that Brown’s death follows a disturbingly common trend of black men being killed, often while unarmed and at the hands of police officers, security guards and vigilantes.

Five TED Talks That Will Change the Way You Work and Think

Question

“I like my job, but I do the same things every day, exactly the same way. My colleagues don’t seem particularly interested in how to think or do things differently. I need to get the lead out and get inspired again. Can you help?” –  Caitlyn from Boston, MA

Answer

Sometimes we get so ingrained in our day-to-day efforts that it becomes hard to see how to shake it up and break out of our routines. Whenever I find myself feeling stuck in a rut in my personal or professional life, I seek out the perspectives of others to get my thoughts and energy moving again.

Getting this kind of input can take place through face-to-face conversations; however, it can also transpire through reading books or watching videos where people share experiences and lessons learned.  One of my go-to resources is TED.com (TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design) which hosts videos of speakers from around the world talking about inspiring topics and ideas.

The site hosts more than 1,400 talks – below, check out five talks that might inspire some new ideas.
