Yo! My name is Nikolas A. Draper-Ivey…This is cosplay as Cinematic Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider Man. This suit was made by 
Jesse Covington ( Writer and Costume Designer) and sewn by Sasha Williams ( Fashion Major graduate). Photos were taken by Pierre BL Brevard I specifically would like to thank Marvel Comics Artist Sara Pichelli for designing this character. I’m also very excited to see Olivier Coipel's work on Spider-Verse!

Building Brands & Running Retail — Ron Johnson and Tristan Walker - Break It Down “Unfortunately we are in a period where [physical] stores will become increasingly less important in the total distribution mix for brands,” says Ron Johnson, the man who built arguably the world’s most successful physical retail outlet — the Apple Store. “The challenge for a startup,” Johnson continues, “is given that physical retail is expensive, and knowing that it will be less important long-term, what’s the right mix? And how will it complement your brand?”

The challenge Johnson describes, and others around brand and retail in a multichannel world, are explored in this segment of the a16z podcast. Johnson is joined in the discussion by Tristan Walker, founder of the eponymous health and beauty brand Walker & Company. Walker is facing all the complex and vital issues Johnson describes as he builds his brand from scratch. Fortunately for Walker, Johnson is an investor in Walker & Company (as is a16z), so he gets to tap the smarts of the retail/branding veteran on a regular basis. In this episode we do too, as Johnson relates some of his lessons from Apple and the other parts of his career in brand-building and retail. And finally, why, according to Walker, the black barbershop will never go away.

Terrace Cafe Adventure

So this past weekend for my birthday I finally had the chance to go check out Terrace Cafe.  One thing you will find out about me is that I love food especially breakfast food.  I kept hearing about this place and seeing pictures of the food just never found time to adventure out that way to experience it so what better time then around my birthday.
