The West Bell Street car park was built on an old cemetery in Dundee.

A series of new walking trails and coloring book have been created as part of a radical reboot of the Dundee Design Festival to ensure it can return in a format safe for Covid, Thursday through October 3.

The festival has already seen major showcases of the work of artists, designers and architects, held in a former printing house and shopping center.

It is hoped that this year’s edition will help locals and visitors to “look at the world a little differently and better understand the design process”.

The historic Dundee gas plant is to be transformed by the first Eden project in Scotland.

Pop-up design houses featuring activities, games and workshops are created amidst half-hour walking trails in four parts of town – Finlathen, Stobswell, Hilltown and the waterfront – while the festival will have also an online incarnation.

The new coloring book was created using images captured by photographer Kathryn Rattray and illustrations by artist Dana Ulama.

The festival will spotlight Bella Keyzer, a wartime shipyard worker who has been honored by the city for her fight for women’s equality, and the site of the Scottish Submarine Base, which was established on Dundee Docks in 1909.

The Bowbridge Works jute mill, which was once dominated by a huge stone camel, the former electrical substation now home to a pigeon racing club and the Morgan Academy, the castle-like school building dating from 1850, will also be celebrated.

Scotland’s first municipal housing estate, a ‘cordoned off’ car park built over a historic cemetery, a rocket-shaped water tower described as ‘like something from the war of the worlds’, the first savings bank in the Dundee town and historic customs house are all recognized.

Highly regarded Dundee institutions like the Forte Cafe, which dates back to the 1940s, the football fields at Dens Park and Tannadice, and the “DJCAD” art school building are all featured, along with the old factories. gas station, which has been allocated to the Eden Project attraction proposed by the city. The arctic research vessel Discovery and the city’s new V&A museum will be in the spotlight.

The festival will recall key moments in Dundee’s history, including an 18th century tsunami, a seven-year battle to build public toilets for women in the city, the construction of the ‘Hilltown Multis’ apartments, the disappearance of its tram network. and the creation of an aqueduct to increase its water supply.

Annie Marrs, Senior Manager, UNESCO City of Design Dundee, said: “When Dundee became a UNESCO City of Design in 2014, hosting a big design festival was high on the to-do list.

“We always intended to host a festival in 2021. The pandemic forced us to rethink the way we worked, the places we wanted to work and the people we worked with.

“Organizing a big event, in a space where many people gather, just seemed impossible.

“But we’re a design festival and a team of designers, so all we really needed to do was rethink what a festival was.”

Cedar Rapids City Council Member Ashley Vanorny speaks about the city’s redesigned flag, named ‘History and Progress’, during a ceremony at the Cedar Rapids Town Center Public Library on Saturday, September 18, 2021.

Cedar Rapids’ newly redesigned municipal flag, named “History and Progress”

CEDAR RAPIDS – The city’s redesigned new municipal flag represents both Cedar Rapids ‘roots and residents’ forward-thinking visions for the future.

The “History and Progress” design option rose to the top of the four options in a city survey asking residents to rank different blue, green and white design options for choosing the new flag as a symbol of community pride. The city received 2,624 responses to the online survey, which ended in August.

The revamped flag was unveiled at 10 a.m. on Saturday in the lobby of the Cedar Rapids Public Library at 450 Fifth Ave. SE.

The City of Cedar Rapids is asking residents to rank four final flag designs to help them come up with a new flag for the city. From left to right, the flags are titled: Embracing the River, Community United, History and Progress, and Resilience and Renewal. (Image from the City of Cedar Rapids)

“This flag is meant to be a symbol of pride in the community,” said Ashley Vanorny, member of Cedar Rapids City Council. “Our residents will now determine how it is used.”

The blue background represents the Cedar River running through town and dividing at May’s Island. On the left side, green comes to a rounded point in the center, representing the Isle of May along with the city’s green spaces and recreation areas. White symbolizes the homes, businesses and infrastructure of Cedar Rapids.

Along with the symbols, the white arc represents the progression and future of Cedar Rapids. Forming a boundary between the blue water and the green field, it also represents flood protection, which protects the community from the river while interacting with it.

The white star symbolizes the historic structures that stand tall on the Isle of May, and its five dots represent the city’s motto of the five seasons – spring, summer, fall, winter, and extra time for residents of Cedar Rapids to enjoy. of life and all the other seasons.

The flag redesign process began in 2019 after the North American Vexillological Association rated the flag as one of the country’s 10 worst in 2004, placing the flag on other “worst” lists in years that followed. In 2015, the city’s flag was called out at a TED talk about the importance of flags by American radio producer Roman Mars, a flag enthusiast.

The existing white flag represents industry, the cityscape, corn and churches in a series of scenes circled in blue. The words “Cedar Rapids” and “Iowa” are printed in capital red letters above and below the images, and the slogan “Proud of yesterday, progressive today, promising tomorrow” sprawls across a small banner. characters below the pictures.

This design was chosen in 1962 during a design competition among local high schools. The artist was Fred Easker, a high school student that year.

For the new flag, Cedar Rapids asked residents to submit design ideas, colors, shapes and symbols, with the goal of creating a flag that reflects the city and incorporates the ideas of citizens. The city suspended the effort in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and derecho before asking for the latest contributions to the investigation this summer.

“We think now is the time for some fun, good news and community pride,” Vanorny said.

Members of the North American Vexillological Association provided two sets of ratings, comments and suggestions on the submitted designs. A local committee used the association’s feedback and residents’ input to choose the four finalists.

The design followed the association’s five design principles:

  • Keep it simple
  • Use meaningful symbolism
  • Use two to three basic colors
  • No lettering or seals
  • Be distinctive or related

According to the city, this project totaled $ 687.73 for public engagement materials.

Digital files of the new flag will be available for printing and other community uses. To make it accessible to the public, the five seasons tree was not used on the flag as it is a trademark of the city and is used to represent the government entity.

Raygun has made t-shirts with the flag before – Vanorny was playing sports on a Saturday morning and said “we hope to see many other local vendors making flag items”.

Other companies interested in creating flag merchandise can contact the city at CityFlag@cedar-rapids.org.

Richard Neutra’s VDL House, which was originally built in 1932 and then rebuilt in 1965 after suffering extensive damage in a fire, has been a Los Angeles icon for good reason. Known for its recognizable glass structure, rooftop gardens and balconies, penthouse solarium and reflecting pool, the residence not only housed Neutra and her family, but also her architectural practice.

Since 1990 the house has been under the direction of the College of Environmental Design and the Department of Architecture of Cal Poly Pomona University, in honor of Neutra’s relationship with the institution, and transformed into a house-museum and a platform to cultivate art, architecture, culture and education. It has hosted several exhibitions and installations to explore new ideas in these areas, and is currently under the new curatorial direction of directors Noam Saragosti and Juhee Park, who took the reins at the start of the pandemic.

Richard Neutra’s VDL house

The exterior of Richard Neutra’s VDL house. Misa Chhan’s curtains are visible through the windows; the patterns of the curtains are inspired by the local vernacular wrought iron window gratin

This week, the house presents the first collective exhibition / intervention since the pandemic. Organized with the Marta art and design gallery and artist / writer Erik Benjamins, ‘Built In’ (September 18 – November 07, 2021) presents a collection of new and in situ works by 32 creators in the disciplines of the art, design and architecture that engages with the integrated and historical elements of the legendary house. All specially created for the show, the works, which range from lighting and furniture to curtains, perfume diffusers, cooling systems and ceramics, celebrate the dialogue between past and present while paying poetic homage to the intrinsic structures of the residence.

“When we first visited the VDL house, we were collectively and immediately struck by the integrated furniture elements of the house, which punctuated our visit at all levels,” recalls Benjamins. “Some were more expected – closed storage, built-in seats, wire shelves for books and sample materials – while others were more surprising; sometimes unexpected, sometimes hyper-particular or even idiosyncratic.

“These integrated moments honor Neutra’s intense pursuit of a home’s potential for programmatic use; the daily rhythms of the inhabitants of the house – in this case not only the architect himself, but his family, his employees and his collaborators. ‘

The integrated seating in the living room has been replaced with heated cushions created by Brody Albert. The designer explains: “The gesture is inspired by a Duchampian concept called“ infrathin ”. When asked to define the term, Duchamp replied: “We can only give examples… the warmth of a seat that has just been left is infra-thin. »The coffee table is an Alex Reed reproduction of the Neutra design

“The house is an exemplary work of vernacular Modernist architecture, but the fact that the building was both Neutras’ personal home as well as the site where Richard Neutra led his practice inevitably creates a number of interesting architectural moments, from spatial transitions and specificity of the program within the house, ”adds Heidi Korsavong from Marta.

“Some rooms, for example, can be further defined by sliding partitions that allow a guest, collaborator or apprentice to create a personal space for themselves for a short or long stay, as the famous architect did. of LA Gregory Ain at the beginning of the life of the house.

‘Built in’ by Marta and Erik Benjamins

From left to right, Noam Saragosti, Erik Benjamins, Benjamin Critton and Heidi Korsavong

Benjamins continues: “The participants in ‘Built In’ operate within, alongside and well beyond the design profession: the show welcomes new works of visual artists, designers, architects, writers, olfactory artists, practitioners of food, media artists. The diversity of types of creative work paints a picture of how we guided responses to the show’s brief: softly and openly.

“Of course, thinking about the tangible built-in elements immediately encourages the physical means to respond creatively, but we also wanted to encourage responses that recognized something that we have come to call the ‘built-in element’; a response less concerned with the dimensionality and physicality of these architectural facts, but rather with their spirit, poetry and symbolism. In the end, the common thread that unites this house party with a show is a thoughtful response to the design of the site, to the rhythms, to the history and to the inhabitants (past, present, future).

The exhibit notably only features practitioners based in the Los Angeles area, “because we knew we wanted this personalized introduction to the physicality and history of the house to inform the works of artists and designers,” explains Korsavong. ‘In this way, there are projects that humbly respond to the intangible spirit of the house and the echo of its past inhabitants.’

“This has in fact become one of the common points: works that speak less to the author and the original architect of the house, and rather quietly commune with the members of the Neutra family,” concludes Benjamin. Critton, co-founder of Marta. “A sound work by Jeremiah Chiu which occupies the speakers integrated into the ceiling of the house mixes the audio found from Dione Neutra’s voice with field recordings taken in the house. A bench from the architectural firm TOLO pays homage to the Neutral son, Frank, whose severe autism had previously excluded him from several important stories surrounding the house.

“The site of the VDL house in the context of its neighborhood has also proven to be fertile territory for several contributing artists: a fountain by Charlap Hyman & Herrero activates the intrinsic water characteristics of the house and dialogues with the Silver reservoir. Adjacent lake, simultaneously drowning the sounds of nearby traffic with the white noise of the steady trickle of water. “Integrated” expands the definitions or parameters of the architectural and historical significance of the house, opening up the readability of the site itself. »§

Throughout September, the 11th Detroit Month of Design will showcase the best in design, from fashion to architecture, in venues across the city. And this year, Central Michigan University Merchandising and fashion design students, alumni and faculty are among the featured designers.

CMU’s exhibition ‘Fashion Future’ seeks to answer questions about the future of fashion and explores concepts related to diversity, equity, inclusion and sustainability.

Michael Mamp, professor of fashion and design merchandising at CMU, is leading the university’s first-ever participation in Detroit Month of Design as curator of the exhibition. Mamp invited all current merchandising and fashion design students, as well as notable staff and alumni, to submit pieces for the collection.

“We hope the exhibition gets people thinking about what the future holds for them, as a fashion designer and consumer, from a process and product perspective,” said Mamp. “We not only want people to see the inspiring work of our current students, but also how our alumni are transforming what they have learned in our program into successful businesses and entrepreneurial careers.”

CMU Fashion Merchandising and Design is one of only two higher education sponsors for this year’s event. The sponsorship was made possible thanks to a grant from the CMU President and Rector Fund for Program Innovation and Excellence.

Impact by design

LaDyra Lyte, senior from Detroit, and Pablo Covarrubias, junior from Grand Rapids, Mich., Are two of the designer students featured in the exhibit.

Lyte’s collection, titled “Killing Me Won’t Make You King,” aims to educate observers about the adversities experienced by black and brown individuals and the unjust systematic teachings that have spread through the generations. Lyte said she hopes the coins will plant the seeds necessary to inspire communities to be more responsible and engage in behaviors of change.

“The future of fashion depends on how many of us designers are willing to stay true to ourselves and produce at an increasing and innovative level, not just predictable and incessant,” said Lyte.

The Covarrubias collection addresses the sustainability of fashion, especially upcycling: using discarded materials to create new products. Covarrubias used fabrics found in thrift stores and pieces of fabric from other projects. One item of clothing is made from denim from old, worn jeans.

“My goal was to create clothes with what I had on hand and to force myself to follow these guidelines in order to reduce waste,” Covarrubias said of his collection. “I think going back to a slow fashion, the fashion industry’s ‘less is more’ format in the future is the way forward and will allow people to enjoy and buy more thoughtfully. . Craftsmanship is the key.

Contemporary Chinese artist Ai Weiwei has designed a series of limited edition masks honoring Hawaiian culture.

In partnership with Hawai’i Contemporary from Honolulu, “The Way Follows Nature” is a series printed by local printmakers and sold to support the upcoming Hawaii Triennial, which runs from February 18 to May 8, 2022, and is supported by The Nature Conservancy Hawaii and Palmyra Chapter and Conservation International Hawaii.

The 10 mask designs incorporate symbols of Hawaiian culture, including local flora, fauna and marine life. The work draws attention to climate issues directly affecting the Hawaiian Islands and beyond.

“The masks are representative of one of the most traumatic events of our lives – a period that tempered human exploitation of the Earth’s natural resources,” Ai Weiwei said in a statement. “This collection allows us to help the islands of Hawaii, a community that is directly affected by growing environmental concerns globally.”

Masks are sold individually and are priced at $ 100 each. There are also exclusive sets of three masks for $ 350 and 10 for $ 1,150. All masks include a signed letter of authenticity from Ai Weiwei.

The collection will be available online exclusively through Hawaii Contemporary’s EBay page for charities and will run until October 2021.

CNN

One of the tricky things about organizing a shelf or bookcase is that we use them to hold more than just books: our shelves showcase memorabilia and picture frames, house board game collections and photographs, and often end up becoming a place where odds and ends like glasses and remotes are stored.

To help you tackle these library challenges, we enlisted the help of home planning experts Pam Meluskey and Larisa Bright, founders of the luxury home organization service, Installed, and interior designer Lindsay Pumpa. We asked these experts to help us pick 20 of the best items for organizing and styling a shelf or book collection – plus something for those cobwebs! – all under $ 20.

Amazon

Crystal Allies Gallery Pair of Polished Agate Geode Halves Bookends

“It may be obvious,” said Pumpa, “but bookends! Bookends are probably the best way to show off your style, as they come in so many varieties. For a natural look that covers a variety of styles, Pumpa suggests a set of geode-style bookends. Look for different colors to match your decor or personal style.

Design Ideas Hidden Bookends

Amazon

Design Ideas Hidden Bookends

Pumpa points out a very specific problem that bookends can help solve: how to put away books that have seen better days. “If you have older books that are ‘sweetly loved’ and may need a little help standing, try invisible bookends,” she says. Pumpa likes invisible bookends to create what she calls “a cleaner library atmosphere” because they don’t compete with other decors you might be trying to showcase.

Clear acrylic bookends

Amazon

Meluskey and Bright also like an “invisible” bookend for collecting unruly books. “Nothing spoils the design of a shelf like sliding books! Keep your items straight and secure with acrylic bookends, ”they say, adding that bookends are“ also great for making sure nothing falls off the end of the shelf ”.

Heavy-duty EasyPAG magazine rack.

Amazon

Heavy-duty EasyPAG magazine rack.

Like bookends, magazine racks are an essential part of shelving organization and come in just about any color, material and style imaginable. This metal magazine rack has a carved floral design and is available in black, white or gold.

MDesign Clear Plastic Magazine Rack

Amazon

MDesign Clear Plastic Magazine Rack

Acrylic organizational solutions can be found for almost any problem, and magazines are no exception. Buy a few of these clear magazine racks to house a one-title collection, which will direct the eye to the uniformity of magazine spines rather than the magazine rack itself.

Steel Mill & Co. Magazine rack

Amazon

Steel Mill & Co. Magazine rack

You can, of course, go in the opposite direction and let your organization solutions line up with decorative elements to give visual interest. These pretty floral magazine racks add a pop of color to a shelf and can be used to store files, as well as magazines.

Record dividers from A to Z

Etsy

Record dividers from A to Z

These alphabetical dividers are designed to organize vinyl records, giving a personalized look to a large collection and bringing a design element of their own. But they can certainly be used for other types of collections, like board games, which are usually stored in a library.

Eyewear organizer box

Amazon

Eyewear organizer box

People who wear “cheaters” – those non-prescription reading glasses that are typically sold in drugstores – know that these cheaters seem to proliferate at night, like gremlins, leaving pairs scattered haphazardly around the house. A storage box designed specifically for glasses (with a clear lid to remind you what’s inside!) May be the key to organizing these cheats and finding them easily.

Bookmarks holder

Etsy

Bookmarks holder

Like reading glasses, bookmarks tend to proliferate; you get one in a bookstore here, another as a gift there, maybe you pick up some souvenir bookmarks when you travel? If you are a person with a lot of bookmarks, it is worth considering spending some money to buy a nice bookmark holder to live on your shelf.

Acrylic Lidded Boxes

The container store

Acrylic Lidded Boxes

Books aren’t the only thing we store on a shelf: photo albums and collections are often housed in bookcases. Pumpa recommends this acrylic lidded box, which she says is “a great way to store memories and photos, while adding another layer of style.”

Eclipse Elegance Bowl

Amazon

Elegance Eclipse Bowl

“Another great storage idea for items that you may need to grab a little more often, but still need a home, like keys, remotes or a matchbox,” Pumpa says, “ try an open bowl or tote. ” Pumpa chose this stylish bowl because, she says, “it also serves as a great decorative decoration for a stack of larger books.”

Threshold Wrapped Rope Decorative Basket

Target

Threshold Wrapped Rope Decorative Basket

“If you have higher lower shelves,” Pumpa says, “and you have little storage for larger items like extra blankets, toys, or seasonal items, I recommend trying a basket or trash can. . ” This is her choice for a neutral basket, and she offers this tip for choosing your own neutral storage: “The key is to make sure the baskets blend in with your decor and don’t detract or attract much. Warning. You also want to make sure they find a home on a lower shelf, so that they don’t upset the balance of the bookcase.

Acrylic display cube

The container store

Acrylic display cube

Meluskey and Bright especially like clear acrylic accessories to tidy up a bookcase. “When you style your bookcase, many objects can quickly battle for visual attention,” they say. “That’s why we like to use clear acrylic items when possible, to keep the focus on your collection. They recommend this display cube, which they say is “great for highlighting or highlighting a specific item.”

Acrylic risers

The container store

Acrylic risers

Another way to use acrylic organizers to decorate a shelf is to purchase a set of risers. Meluskey and Bright say these well-priced risers are “perfect for using different heights when styling – a successful shelf design incorporates items at different heights.”

Umbra Hidden Floating Bookcase

Amazon

Umbra Hidden Floating Bookcase

Libraries are not the only place where we store books. If you are a person who tends to have a big stack of books on your bedside table – where they occupy valuable real estate needed for a box of tissues, glasses, remotes, etc. – a wall mounted floating shelf will be a life and space saver for you.

Royal Duster ostrich feather duster

Amazon

Royal Duster ostrich feather duster

Well, we promised you something for spider webs and here it is: a good old fashioned feather duster! Even if your book storage isn’t plagued with cobwebs, it’s almost certainly dusty – the shelves are getting very, very dusty! – and keeping it clean can be a frustrating task. A feather duster solves this problem by allowing you to regularly dust the books, knick-knacks, and the shelves themselves without having to pick up every item.

September 14, 2021 has been an exciting day for everyone in tech! Apple had its long-awaited event, and in the end it left us with some pretty amazing launches. Apple has unveiled the iPhone 13 models, the Apple Watch Series 7, the new iPad and the iPad Mini. The leaks that have been pouring in for almost a year have left us with great expectations. Some have been met, others have not. This year’s iPhone has a smaller notch, bigger battery, better chip, and not too many major changes. While the iPad Mini features a modern, flat-rimmed design, ultra-wide front camera, TouchID in the power button, support for Apple Pencil, USB-C and 5G, which makes it an absolute monster even for its size. As we explore what Apple has given us this year, we can also fantasize about what it hasn’t! We’ve curated a collection of ingenious conceptual designs that we wish Apple launched this year. From an Apple device that merges AirDrop with an external flash drive to an iPod Classic concept that celebrates its 20th anniversary – these are the designs you would have loved to see at the September event!

The iPod officially turns 20 this year, and we wonder if Apple released a newly designed iPod Classic to celebrate its 20th anniversary ?! Andrea Copellino took the iPod classic and gave it some modern touches: thin edges, curved edges and lots of glass! It retained the iconic click wheel, however, but incorporated it into the magic trackpad concept, so you don’t have to click anything. He wanted to create an iPod design that seamlessly integrates the old and the new… a design that celebrates everything we loved and enjoyed about the iPod while adding some much-needed futuristic improvements. I wish I could have seen it launched during the September 2021 event!

Incorporating Apple’s design and technical language into its product, Taiseer created Drop to make it even easier to transfer and store files between Apple devices. Drop works as an external USB Type-C and offline wireless flash drive and AirDrop file transfer and Thunderbolt 3 data transfer device. Drop is an Apple-inspired standalone device that works as a flash drive, device storage and a file transfer cable. Users can drop AirDrop files from their iPhones or MacBooks to Drop where the files can be stored or transferred to another Apple or non-Apple device. Alternatively, users can store files offline using DropDrive, a feature that creates a folder on the user’s iPhone for storing media files, where the files remain until Drop is brought back to normal. line.

The three drastic changes to the Apple Watch Loop include A. its circular body and B. the concave screen and C. the watch band, which forms a bumper around the main hardware of the smartwatch. Designed to provide a compact yet rugged experience, Duarte has equipped the watch with an extremely user-friendly concave display that cannot be damaged when you accidentally hit your hand on a surface. Likewise, the large rubber bumper around the hardware component of the watch provides similar shock absorption characteristics (although this results in an inevitably large physical bezel around the screen).

Copellino’s “Peak iPhone” remains attentive to certain things. He does not use innovation for fun. No cascading screens, no foldable screens, no fingerprint sensor in the Apple logo, no headphone jack to make Apple look like it’s backing up. The elements of the Copellino iPhone Peak are simply external hardware features that take the original iPhone experience and amplify it. There are also a few internal hardware considerations that I’d like to see in the iPhone, but they’re no different from what MKBHD always talks about, like much longer battery life, higher refresh rate display, possibly migration. to USB -C charging, and possibly the possibility of adding a memory card to your iPhone.

Circular concept Apple iPod Nano by Andrea Copellino

As Apple started phasing out the iPod, it started to look more and more like the iPhone (in fact, the iPod Touch was almost indistinguishable from previous iPhone models) . Copellino gets around this problem by completely updating the iPod and making it circular. The new iPod Nano charts its own course with an all-new design that instantly sets itself apart from the iPhone. It sports a circular user interface that Copellino also designed from scratch, borrowing elements from the Apple Watch. It also comes with a circular display that looks slightly smaller than the one used on the HomePod Mini.

Apple iPhone 14 Jon Prosser Rendersbyian

Apple iPhone 14 Jon Prosser Rendersbyian

Prosser decided to drop a pretty big bomb. His leak, he reiterates, does not concern the iPhone 13 … but rather the iPhone 14, which is not expected until 2022. Prosser says he has been in contact with employees of the chain of supply who shared with him pictures of the new phone. and then used those images to create renderings that do full justice to the design. The design in question celebrates the 10th anniversary of the popular iPhone 4, with a similar flat-rim design, a flat camera module under a glass back, and a metal rim along the sides. One notable upgrade, however, is the presence of 3 rear camera lenses and the disappearance of the notch that divides, which plagued iPhone design for almost 5 years if you count the notched iPhone 13. which falls next week.

Louis berger took the current square-shaped Mac Mini and turned it into a futuristic, pill-shaped design. Called The Mac Pill Mini, Berger integrated it into a Touch Bar. Although one might wonder, is such a change more for aesthetic than functional purposes? Aesthetically, this would contrast with the current designs of Apple, which lean towards the sharp and avant-garde! Whatever the reason for this redesign, it is sure to be refreshing!

This year, the new Apple MacBook Pro is expected to feature the biggest design overhaul since the 2016 design. The laptop will feature a flat-edged design, removing the curved edges for a more iPhone-like form factor. 12. The designer here turns away from thought and envisions the identical design to how we’ve come to recognize the MacBook Pro in recent years, and it’s gorgeous nonetheless. The most noticeable difference this year should be the display. The MacBook will have brighter panels, supposedly with mini-LEDs, the first for the MacBook. The mini-LED display means there will be a significant improvement in image quality, contrast, and screen brightness. Marc’s vision suggests thinner glasses.

Chau is a wireless charger that can be mobile or stationary. Like the wireless chargers already on the market, Chau comes in two parts: a wireless charger and its charging station. The charging station can be plugged into any outlet and has two charging stations for Apple products. The raised charging station holds the auxiliary charger in place so users can either let their phone charge on the docking station or dislodge the auxiliary charger from its magnetic port and charge it on the go.

Conceptually, the presence of an Apple Pencil in a MacBook is confusing but also potentially exciting. The minute you pop a pencil into the MacBook, you’re single-handedly killing the top edge of the iPad Pro, but the more you think about it, the more it feels like it might work. A Mac “Book” and a “Pencil” instinctively go together, like a notebook and a pencil, don’t they? Also, it creates a synergy between the two products, and I can imagine Craig Federighi dragging files from the iPad Pro with a pencil to the MacBook and transferring them from one device to another, thus expanding the user experience. of Apple’s universal control function. !

Pinterest accused of not paying a female “co-designer” https://myrumah.net/pinterest-accused-of-not-paying-a-female-co-designer/ Mon, 13 Sep 2021 19:02:34 +0000 https://myrumah.net/pinterest-accused-of-not-paying-a-female-co-designer/ SAN FRANCISCO – When Pinterest went public in 2019, friends of Christine Martinez sent their congratulations.

SAN FRANCISCO – When Pinterest went public in 2019, friends of Christine Martinez sent their congratulations. She had worked closely with the founders of the digital bulletin board in its early days, and her friends believed she would grow rich alongside them.

But as Pinterest’s stock price rose, turning its founders into billionaires, Ms Martinez realized that she would neither be paid nor credited for her contributions, she said.

On Monday, she filed a complaint.

In a lawsuit filed in Alameda County Superior Court, Ms Martinez accused Ben Silbermann and Paul Sciarra, two of Pinterest’s three co-founders, of implied breach of contract, theft of ideas, unjust enrichment and unfair trade practices. Ms Martinez created Pinterest alongside Mr Silbermann and Mr Sciarra, the lawsuit said, bringing in ideas that were “basic organizing concepts,” such as organizing pictures on boards and creating possibility of electronic commerce.

Ms Martinez, 40, has never been officially employed by Pinterest and has not applied for a contract. She did not receive any stock, although she said the founders of Pinterest verbally agreed to compensate her on several occasions.

Ms Martinez argued that she and the founders had an implied contract, based on their discussions. Pinterest even named a section of its source code in his honor, according to the complaint. And she was such a close friend of the co-founders that she brought them both home for Christmas and was a bridesmaid at Mr Silbermann’s wedding.

“I always expected them to do this when they could compensate me,” she said, adding that she had been naïve. “There was never any doubt in my mind.”

Pinterest did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The lawsuit renews the question of whether Pinterest, which primarily targets female users, is hostile to women and minorities in its workplace.

Last summer, Ifeoma Ozoma and Banks Aerica Shimizu, two former Pinterest employees, wrote on Twitter about wage disparities, retaliation and racist and sexist comments they had suffered at the company. Shortly after, Françoise Brougher, former COO of Pinterest, sued the company, citing gender discrimination and retaliation.

In response, Pinterest employees staged a virtual walkout in August last year, demanding that the company increase the number of women and minorities in its senior ranks and provide more transparency on promotion levels, retention and compensation.

In December, the company agreed to a $ 22.5 million settlement with Ms. Brougher, including a $ 2.5 million donation to charities for women and minorities underrepresented in tech. Pinterest shareholders then sued the company and its board for its corporate culture.

Ms. Ozoma helped sponsor the Silenced No More Act in California, which will expand protection for employees who report discrimination or harassment in the workplace. It was recently passed by the state legislature.

Ms Martinez said she wasn’t surprised to see the headlines on Pinterest’s culture and was frustrated by the disconnect between the company’s male founders and its female users.

“I spent many years getting really confused as to how people believe these three men created a product like this for women – that they understood women pretty well,” he said. she declared.

Starting in 2008, the year before Pinterest was founded, Mr. Silbermann and Mr. Sciarra sought advice from Ms. Martinez on a wide range of concepts, from her name and features to her marketing strategy and spreadsheet. route produced, according to the lawsuit.

Ms. Martinez had studied interior design, created a lifestyle blog and founded LAMA Designs, an e-commerce start-up. Even though LAMA’s business model was working and showing promise, venture capitalists did not take her seriously and she said she had struggled to raise funds.

Still, funding Pinterest, based on little more than an idea and the credentials of Mr. Silbermann and Mr. Sciarra, was easier. Ms. Martinez said she was eager to help her friends.

“They had no marketing training or expertise in creating a product for women,” she said. “My role has always been to educate them.

According to the lawsuit, Ms. Martinez gave the co-founders the idea of ​​organizing the images into “boards,” a key feature of the site; created his call-to-action phrase, “Pin it up”; and established its main categories including home decor, fashion and DIY. She also helped Mr. Silbermann persuade top design and lifestyle bloggers to use and promote Pinterest. She took him to conferences, gathered feedback from the community and refined the speech for them, she said.

Ms Martinez said she realized she wouldn’t be compensated until after Pinterest published in 2019.

Soon after, she said, a death in the family made her reflect on her life. This encouraged her to talk about Pinterest.

“I couldn’t take this to my grave,” she said.

Farmhouse style homes have a moment.

A 2020 survey of Homes.com interviewed more than 5,000 adults across the United States about their favorite home style from a list that included a bohemian craftsman, mid-century modern ranch, French chateau, and Tudor, among others. The modern farmhouse was the big winner, as participants from 42 of the 50 states rated this simple and comfortable style as their favorite.

Home improvement projects can help homeowners put their own mark on their home, and such projects can be both aesthetic and functional in nature. Here are some farmhouse design elements homeowners can consider when looking to transform their home’s interior with this popular style in mind.

  • Visible beams : Exposed beams instantly evoke images of a farm. Home renovation experts at BobVila.com note that this rustic remodeling project can use real wood or faux beams that look like the real thing. Decorative beams that have nothing to do with the structural integrity of a home can be installed by skilled handymen. However, even false beams are heavy and BobVila.com recommends that homeowners have their existing structure evaluated by an engineer prior to installation.
  • Aged wood finishes: Distressing is designed to make something less than perfect. Distressed wood finishes can be found in many farmhouse style homes. Furniture and photo frames can give the aged look that farmhouse fans are going for. This is a relatively inexpensive project that many homeowners can tackle on their own after watching tutorials online that recommend the right tools and techniques to get the job done right.
  • Kitchen sink : Many components combine to create a truly classic farmhouse kitchen. But perhaps no component is more essential than the classic farmhouse sink. HGTV home improvement experts note that a classic farmhouse sink has a deep, wide basin. Farmhouse sinks are large enough to handle all the dishes that come after a big family meal. Old-fashioned porcelain sinks are worth considering by homeowners who want their kitchen sinks to evoke a traditional farmhouse feel.
  • Counters: HGTV recommends Butcher Block Countertops for homeowners who favor the European farmhouse style. Homeowners who are renovating their kitchens to create a farmhouse feel should consider installing a large island with a walnut butcher block countertop for an authentic farmhouse feel.
