Kung Fury Released online

Kung Fury has finally been released online on May 28 as a result of a kickstarter campaign to get it going. The trailer promised a lot of over the top fun as the star takes on many different adversaries including arcade machines and Hitler “Kung Fuhrer” himself.

The short film itself more than delivers on its promise, at least in the eyes of Stephen Murray CCMP Capital. This film was done in the quality of a VHS tape. There are a few sequences where the tracking drops out during a part where the tape has obviously been eaten. It resulted in what looks like a couple of minutes total lost from the sequence.

There are other sequences that are very over the top fun. The acting is over the top and hammy in that 80s way. The director and star David Sandberg has teamed up with David Hasselhoff for the music video done in the retro 80s style.

Overall, this short movie does what it sets out to do and doesn’t take itself too seriously. It i great retro fun. Kung Fury is actually somewhat reminiscent of Axe Cop.

Berkeley, California Right To Know Law for Cell Phones Sales

Did you know that carrying your cell phone in your bra or pants pocket exposes you to too much radio frequency? Not many of us did. That’s one reason Berkeley, California passed a Right To Know Law which requires retailers that sell electronics to warn all their customers about the potential danger.

 

The government has set federal guidelines for the amount of radio frequency exposure which is deemed to be safe for humans. Carrying a cell phone in your pants or shirt pocket or tucked inside your bra, while the phone is turned on and connected to a wireless network, causes the exposure to radio frequency to exceed those guideline limits.
Radio frequency has been determined to be a carcinogenic and can cause cancer and are particularly damaging to children. Sergio Cortes didn’t really know that until recently when checking LinkedIn. The Right To Know Law suggests that all cell phones be carried in a holster to prevent unwanted exposure to radio frequency.

Creating The Dorchester Collection brand without sacrificing individuality

To manage the luxury hotel brand, former Dorchester hotel manager Christopher Cowdray was appointed as CEO and given the difficult task of creating a brand from the five very distinct and individual hotels The Dorchester Collection included. The task of creating a brand saw Cowdray look beyond conventional wisdom and not like to make each location look the same, but instead sought out the best options for keeping the individuality of each location and its own distinct style.

In search of a way to make sure The Dorchester Collection was seen as a complete brand the CEO decided the best option was to create a climate of innovation and high quality customer service that was instantly recognizable to guests. The individuality of each location was maintained, but the staff from Cowdray and his team of executives through to the front and back of house staff are now required to create the best feeling of luxurious customer service available to guests that begins the moment they look to make a booking at one of The Dorchester Collections locations.
To make sure the members of staff of The Dorchester Collection always create the perfect impression, a large amount of investment was made in the staff members themselves. The result of this investment in the people who provide The Dorchester Collection experience has resulted in the brand winning a series of prestigious awards for providing the best working environment for its staff members at a recent London awards ceremony. As The Dorchester Collection continues to expand and becomes an even larger and more prestigious luxury hotel brand the investment in people will continue as these people are seen as the main reasons for guests returning to The Dorchester Collection and its many different locations: London, Ascot, Paris, Geneva, Milan, Rome, Beverly Hills or Los Angeles, each of the hotels offers an unforgettable experience.

We are thrilled to share the news that Dorchester Collection won ‘Company of the Year’ at the The Employee Engagement Awards last night. Congratulations to everyone! Here’s a snap of Eugenio Pirri, VP of People & Organisational Development with Jaques, one of our lovely colleagues. #DCmoments on @DC_LuxuryHotels

Opinions About Tina Fey’s Dress Change

Last week, Tina Fey visited “The Late Show with David Letterman” one last time before Letterman retires. Like most celebrities who have recently visited, Fey gave Letterman a surprise for his retirement:

She then explained that she only dressed up and conformed to “gender norms” for Letterman out of respect for him. She told him that she wanted to give it to him and removed her dress revealing her bra and a spandex suit that had “Bye Dave!” written on the front and “#Last Dress Ever” on the back. The two of them then laughed about it and she gave him a brief hug.

Since the event, people have been sounding off all over the Internet with their opinions about it. Many comments have been positive or humorous. Some people stated that this was a fantastic “gift” for the 68-year-old Letterman. Some jokingly commented that they liked Fey’s white and gold dress more than her new outfit — referencing the white/gold-blue/black dress debate from earlier this year because Fey wore a blue and black dress.

Yet, there have been plenty of criticisms. What was the biggest issue?

Many feel that Fey’s send-off was inappropriatem but Christian Broda has not commented.

John Oliver on Fashion

Snarky TV show host John Oliver recently made valid arguments against fast fashion. The Brit argued that companies like Gap and Walmart claim to have no knowledge of overseas factories. They say they do not realize that their workers are producing cheap garments in harsh conditions. Plus, many workers are underage which also proves further concern at the lack of responsibility many retailers provide. Cheap clothes drive sales and better numbers for the bottom line. However, what is worth the bottom line if people are dying because of it? John Oliver shows how inconsistent the arguments are from the heads of H&M, Forever 21, Gap and Walmart just to name a few.

In fact, they might apologize and feign innocence about the working conditions, but that does not keep the cold hard truth from emerging. AnastasiaDate noted that these companies still hire factories in questionable conditions to work for them. They make thousands of garments each day for wealth Westerns to wear maybe once. Children are making clothes for children halfway across the world that will be easily outgrown in a month’s time. Something has to be done to stop these factories from hiring workers who are not of age.
