New Bob Marley & The Wailers’ “Easy Skanking” Music Video Captures Jamaica’s Natural Beauty [Watch]

first_imgToday, the Marley family, Island Records, and UMe have released a brand new music video for the late Bob Marley & The Wailers‘ “Easy Skanking”. The new video aims to capture the aesthetics and vibe of Marley’s homeland of Jamaica, presenting viewers with snapshots of various walks of life “taking it easy” around the island.Musically, the video mainly stays true to the original Wailers recording—aside from a sonically submerged break which excuses the video’s subjects while they light their respective spliffs (“Oh god, I gotta take a lift…”).As the Marley camp notes in a statement announcing the new video, “With its breezy vibe, tropical rhythms and easy-going decree, ‘Easy Skanking’ is one of the most indelible songs from Bob Marley & The Wailers’ acclaimed March 1978 album Kaya, which was recorded in London concurrently with the material that ultimately comprised 1977’s Exodus. The classic song is also featured on Marley’s greatest hits compilation Legend, which holds the distinction of being the world’s best-selling reggae album of all time, with over 15 million copies sold in the United States and over 28 million worldwide.”In today’s hectic times, the new “Easy Skanking” video serves as a carefree reminder to celebrate the ongoing global legacy Bob Marley and take a moment to slow down and appreciate the beauty and the joy that surrounds you.

Joint Task Force-Bravo Assists Honduran Families in Remote Areas

first_imgBy Dialogo April 07, 2015 “The chaplain’s office worked together with JTF-Bravo’s intelligence office and civil and Military operations office, along with Joint Security Forces and the 1st Battalion, 228th Aviation Regiment Unit Ministry Team to scope out and select a village,” said U.S. Air Force Captain Samuel McClellan, JTF-Bravo command chaplain. Participants in the 59th Chapel Hike — a longstanding tradition of delivering supplies to underserviced communities in the mountains — departed on February 28 for an 11-kilometer round-trip hike to the remote communities of La Brea and La Laguna, both in the Department of Comayagua. There, they delivered more than 2,040 kilograms of food to Hondurans in need. Collecting donations, buying the food, and delivering it requires a high degree of planning and coordination. Just before Service Members distributed the food, the community representative of La Laguna, María Pinera, expressed her gratitude to the volunteers of JTF-Bravo. “Humanitarian aid allows the Armed Forces to maintain a social bond with the more vulnerable communities,” said Eugenio Sosa, a security analyst at the National Autonomous University of Honduras (UNAH). “In the communities, activities of this type are widely accepted. The residents have great admiration for the Honduran Armed Forces and JTF-Bravo due to the efforts of both institutions to help them.” Currently, JTF-Bravo’s Medical Element has two full-service visits scheduled for 2015. First, the Medical Element plans to support a Honduran-led Medical Partnership Exercise in Comayagua Central Parque on June 6. In addition, there will be a two-day Medical Readiness Training Exercise outside Comayagua, scheduled for June 24-25. “Humanitarian aid allows the Armed Forces to maintain a social bond with the more vulnerable communities,” said Eugenio Sosa, a security analyst at the National Autonomous University of Honduras (UNAH). “In the communities, activities of this type are widely accepted. The residents have great admiration for the Honduran Armed Forces and JTF-Bravo due to the efforts of both institutions to help them.” The task force’s primary mission is to encourage unity and conduct and support joint operations, actions, and activities in the joint operations area in order to provide security, stability, and regional cooperation. After delivering the provisions, the members of JTF-Bravo spent time interacting with the residents and playing with the children, who broke open three piñatas the volunteers donated. Also donated were 24 soccer balls by the Kick for Nick Foundation, a non-profit named after the late Private Nick Madaras that fulfills his dream of U.S. Troops giving soccer balls to children overseas.

But the hard work pays off when Service Members demonstrate their commitment to helping the civilian population. Just before Service Members distributed the food, the community representative of La Laguna, María Pinera, expressed her gratitude to the volunteers of JTF-Bravo. “In addition, we worked with the governor of Comayagua [Ana Valenzuela] since she wanted to support La Brea and donate 65 bags of food she acquired from the Permanent Contingency Commission (COPECO) [the Honduran equivalent of FEMA in the U.S.]” In addition to providing food, JTF-Bravo Service Members also provide medical care to the people of Comayagua on an annual basis. “Every year we carry out strategic planning with the members of JTF-Bravo, not only for this hike, which is also known as the ‘Hike of Love,’ but also to plan for health issues,” Governor Valenzuela said. “Our friends, our neighbors are visiting us today, but they are not coming empty handed. They are here with nutrition for the people,” Pinera said. Since the tradition began in 2004, about 9,800 service members have donated more than $173,800 and delivered more than 214,000 pounds of food to villages. It’s not an easy journey; the homes are difficult to reach by vehicle, and for more than 5.6 kilometers, each member of the Joint Task Force climbed more than 457 meters of mountainous terrain with nine kilograms of food in their packs. JTF-Bravo is one of three joint task forces operating under the United States Southern Command (SOUTHCOM). JTF-Bravo manages a runway that can handle C-5 aircraft, the largest airplane flown by the U.S. Air Force, according to the JTF-Bravo website. More than 170 members of Joint Task Force Bravo (JTF-Bravo), which operates out of the Soto Cano Air Base in Honduras, recently delivered humanitarian aid to 230 families in need.

Is your brand a carnival house of mirrors?

first_imgIf you’ve been to a state or county fair you’ve probably seen the “house of mirrors” attraction. The one that features row after row of mirrors all stacked at angles designed to give a different view or perspective no matter which way you look. They are confusing and disconcerting (on purpose). Apply this idea to your brand. A few weeks ago while working with a client during a brand workshop, an employee noted “we’ve got so many different brands our members are bound to like at least one of them.” While she said this in jest (and knowing a better and more unified brand was on the way for her credit union as a result of the workshop) the point hit home.House of Mirrors? Flavor of the month? So many brand personalities they’re bound to like one of them? This is not the way to run an effective brand. At best it will confuse consumers and at worst it will turn them way. Neither are good options for your bottom line. While building a relevant and lasting brand, many factors come into play but one of the easiest to remember goes back to the Three Cs. When analyzing the state of your brand, ask yourself if it hits on these three key points:Clarity. Your brand must be clear about what it is and what it is not. This helps distinguish you from the competition. Disney is all about family fun and a wow experience. Harley-Davidson empowers a lifestyle of freedom and self-expression. What does your brand say about you?  Consistency. Your brand must always be what it claims to be. Does your brand promise speedy loan decisions? Then you’d better deliver speedy loan decisions. Friendly staff? They’d better provide that. World peace and a fresh minty taste? Then you brand must deliver on those claims.  Constancy. Your brand must always be visible. This isn’t to say you must buy and own every media outlet in your markets (that’s impractical and unwise). But your brand does have to be visible in front of both staff and your consumers in the way they live it. While a great deal goes into building a successful brand, the Three Cs are a good starting point of reference. They can help ensure your brand covers the basics and doesn’t drift into “hall of mirrors” territory. No one likes a creepy carnival, anyway.     11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Mark Arnold Mark Arnold is an acclaimed speaker, brand expert and strategic planner helping businesses such as credit unions and banks achieve their goals with strategic marketing insights and energized training.

first_imgAs Amazon elevates the importance of delivering highly sought products amid the coronavirus pandemic, the eTailer said independent merchants would not be able to send merchandise to its warehouses except for household staples, medical products, and other items in high demand until early April, The Wall Street Journal reported. A spokesperson for the eCommerce retailer said per the report, “We are temporarily prioritizing household staples, medical supplies and other high-demand products coming into our fulfillment centers so we can more quickly receive, restock, and ship these products to customers.”Individuals globally are tapping into digital platforms as governments put forward new limitations on moving around and set social-distancing procedures to stem proliferation of the coronavirus.

COVID-19: Villagers forego traditional ‘lockdown’ for PSBB in S. Sumatra

first_imgMeaning “medicinal offerings”, he said that the sedekah obat ceremony was held for four days.”The first night involves tolak bala,” a ritual for “casting out threats”, explained Adi. “All the villagers gather in an open field. Then, a group of youths place memali [agarwood] logs around them. They are forbidden to leave the circle until the ritual is over.”Read also: National COVID-19 task force chief urges public to obey PSBB to pave way for ‘new normal’A customary leader and the youths then sprinkle each villager with water that has been mixed with papaya leaves. For the residents of Jermun village in Ogan Komering Ilir regency, Palembang, South Sumatra, the physical restrictions imposed in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak are nothing new.Long before the coronavirus emerged, these villagers have relied on a ritualistic form of lockdown called bekunci to protect them against infectious diseases.”Bekunci is part of a traditional ceremony called sedekah obat to prevent the spread of a plague,” Ogan Komering Ilir spokesperson Adi Yanto said on Wednesday. On the second day, the villagers are all barred from working their farms or paddies. They are also forbidden from wielding any sharp implements.On the third day, the villagers may not engage in any strenuous physical activities.”They believe that if they break any of the rules, great misfortune will befall them,” Adi said.On the first three days, the sons or the heads of every family must burn coconut husks to ward off danger.They must also place lengths of yellow bamboo on their roofs to symbolize courage and prosperity. The number of bamboo poles represents the number of sedekah obat that the family has participated in.“No villager dares to go out at night during the three days,” Adi said.On the fourth and final day, the villagers are released from the log circle and hold a celebration. They make traditional cakes like kolak dawet, gulo puan, lemang and sagon and feast on them in a field.Read also: COVID-19: Govt to tighten security at ‘mudik’ ban checkpoints as Idul Fitri approachesAdi said, however, that the villagers of Jermun did not perform the four-day ceremony for the COVID-19 outbreak.”They followed the PSBB [large-scale social restrictions] and the physical distancing policy as advised by the government,” he said.Jermun village head Abus Roni said that none of the villagers had contracted COVID-19 to date.”To prevent COVID-19 transmission, we set up health posts to check every visitor entering the village. The residents take turns manning the posts, and our midwives [examine] the visitors,” he said. South Sumatra has the third largest number of COVID-19 cases outside Java and Jakarta, and the seventh largest nationwide as of May 21, with 674 confirmed cases and 21 deaths.
