Brave brands take center stage

first_img 14SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Kristiana LockmanI’m used to brands chasing me. Like the maker of the sparkly shoes I abandoned in a cart, the one that stalks me as I move around the Internet. Reading an article, there they are. Checking out my friend’s vacation pictures? Sparkly shoes are winking in the sidebar, like little actors determined to audition for a role in my closet. Even the other pair of sparkly shoes, the ones I DID buy, are tailing me.That’s the reality of the world we live in. Brands aren’t sitting back waiting to be discovered. They’re trying to get in front of us, working up a sweat as they audition for the spotlight in our heads.But you know who doesn’t have to work so hard? You know who walks right up and takes the stage? The brand that bravely starts a conversation about something that matters.Dove has been doing this for over a decade with Real Beauty, a campaign that started as a research project and ended up tapping into a deeper, more meaningful conversation about what it means to be beautiful. This brand was able to elevate itself with a message that doesn’t feel like advertising.  Really, I don’t have the bandwidth to remember why their product will make me look softer and smoother than someone else’s product. But why my girlfriends, my mother, my co-workers, and I all feel we have to look softer and smoother? That’s a pretty interesting topic. continue reading »last_img read more

Brisbane seeing an increase in super-sized garages

first_img“It’s probably almost one of the biggest selling points in areas like Ascot and Hamilton. People there have quite a few cars and roads can be quite narrow,” he said. The majority of Zephyr Industries projects are in those suburbs and on blocks that required excavation. Mr Larkin said as they were already digging down, it made sense to create a luxury area in what would have otherwise been dead space.“In the case of Noir (the basement) is essentially all underground anyway, so we wouldn’t put living spaces down there.” The Zephyr Industries’ renovation of 15 Towers Street, Ascot, included a six-car garage.Mr Larkin said while Zephyr Industries had the machinery and expertise to build these types of garages, not every builder had the same capabilities and a super garage didn’t work on every block. “You can do it on a smaller scale though with a four-car garage and the type of technology we use,” he said. Ray White New Farm principal Matt Lancashire agreed that super garages were on the rise in the river city and there was nothing bargain about these basements.“It’s a growing trend as the market has started to perform,” he said. “You tend to see as a market is doing well, the number of cars increase. If you look around the streets of Brisbane you tend to see more high-end cars – Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Mercedes – than you used to see.“People who are passionate about their cars are also passionate about the accommodation for their cars.” The property at 33 Debussy Pl, Mount Ommaney, has a nine-car garage. Picture: supplied.The Brisbane-based agent said the increase in families with adult children, and their cars, at home was also driving demand. Mr Lancashire said it was “very rare” to find a city property with an oversized garage, as not every homesite could accommodate such an extravagance, but those that did come on the market generated high interest.

And these modern super garages aren’t just about space. Mr Lancashire said buyers were also keen on technology and security. “In garaging, you’re seeing sound, ambient lighting to complement the cars and technology as far as voice control,” he said. “And most high-end homes are big on security already.” A James Bond-inspired home at 558 London Road, Chandler has a basement garage with wine cellar, tasting room and parking for up for 16 cars.

There is also a modern masterpiece at 33 Debussy Pl, Mount Ommaney, with a nine-car, high clearance garage on the lower level, along with a self-contained unit and a home cinema. The five-storey home at 9 Prospect Tce, Hamilton has a luxurious 300sq m basement level that incorporates a 12-car garage and a bar. “Because we were doing such a high-end house, the basement had to become a feature as well,” he said Developer Brayden Larkin of Zephyr Industries was determined to create a garage in keeping with the high end luxury of Noir. Photo: supplied.The garage includes Batcave-like lighting that turns on in increments as a car enters the basement level, as well as the latest in home security and technology that can be controlled from a smart phone or tablet. A glass-bottom pool on the second level also sits above the basement. Mr Larkin said too often the garage was an afterthought but it could be a real estate highlight, especially for buyers keen on a mancave.

Cricket News Virender Sehwag suggests THIS Indian legend as chief selector to replace MSK Prasad

first_imgNew Delhi: Former skipper Anil Kumble’s ability to boost confidence of the players makes him an ideal candidate for the role of chairman of selectors, said Virender Sehwag, who also advocated a hike in remuneration for the job.Never to mince his words, former opener Sehwag said BCCI needs to pay more for heading the selectors’ committee. The current selection panel, led by MSK Prasad, has faced a lot of flak for it being a lightweight with a cumulative experience of 13 Tests.”I think Anil Kumble could be the right candidate for the chairman of selectors post. He is someone who has interacted with Sachin (Tendulkar), Sourav (Ganguly) and Rahul (Dravid) as a player and with youngsters as a coach,” Sehwag told reporters during launch of a new app ‘The Selector’.”When I made a comeback (Australia series 2007-08), captain Kumble came to my room and said you will not be dropped for the next two series. That’s the kind of confidence a player needs,” said Sehwag.However, Sehwag also said that he doesn’t think that Kumble will agree to do the job right now since the chairman gets Rs 1 crore per annum.”BCCI needs to raise bar as far as pay is concerned. Then a lot of players will be interested,” said Sehwag.Asked if he would also be interested in this post, Sehwag said that he doesn’t like too many restrictions. “I write columns, appear on TV and being selector will mean a lot of restrictions. I don’t know whether I would like so many restrictions,” the Nawab of Najafgarh said.Sehwag, who had lost the race to be India’s coach in 2017 to Ravi Shastri, said that he did not apply this time. “In 2017, the BCCI secretary and (late) Dr MV Sridhar (GM Cricket Operations) asked me to apply so I applied. This time no one asked me, so I didnt apply,” said Sehwag when asked if he was amused in the manner Shastri was re-appointed the coach.Sehwag also said he finds it difficult to comprehend the conflict of interest rules.”I can understand that I can’t run an academy if I am a selector but if I am the national coach I don’t understand why I can’t run an academy,” he said.As the talk veered towards playing XI for the first Test against West Indies, Sehwag’s vote went to Ajinkya Rahane if India played five bowlers.”Ajinkya Rahane has been batting at No 4 (No 5) so if it is a case of five bowlers then he should play. Rohit Sharma comes in only if you go with four bowlers,” Sehwag reasoned.He also felt that “Mahendra Singh Dhoni should have batted at number five” in the World Cup semi-final against New Zealand.”…players like Hardik Pandya, who can play big shots should have come in at number seven towards the end,” said the former India captain.He also expressed his happiness at S Sreesanth’s life ban being reduced to seven years. “I am very happy for him. He now needs to play domestic cricket,” he said.Sehwag was amused when he was asked about suggestions on wearing neck guards in the wake of Steve Smith recent injury. Smith took a blow from England pacer Jofra Archer in the second Ashes Test and has ruled out of the third Ashes Test due to concussion.”Why do you need to show your neck to the bowler? You have a bat and you are wearing a helmet. In my entire career, I never used chest pads,” Sehwag said.A member of NADA’s anti-doping appeals panel (ADAP), Sehwag said filling the whereabouts clause was a real problem that bothered the Indian cricketers. BCCI recently agreed to be NADA-compliant after years of resistance.”I have appeared for many dope tests. Even in domestic cricket when I was out of the team, during IPL. The problem with whereabouts is I can’t pinpoint where I will be at a specific hour of the day on a specific date. I may mention it initially and then I might have a change in plan,” he said.
