RPDR All Stars

Ahead of the highly anticipated seventh season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, the cast of all-winners took to the streets of New York City for a sickening week of fun events as iconic as the new season.

Jaida Essence Hall, Jinkx Monsoon, Monét X Change, Raja, Shea Couleé, Trinity The Tuck, Yvie Oddly and The Vivienne turned heads all over the city from the top of the Empire State Building to ringing the opening bell at NASDAQ and attending an iconic window display ruveal at Saks Fifth Avenue.

The cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7 took the competition to new heights on Monday, May 9 when they visited the iconic Empire State Building ahead of the season premiere. The queens were joined by Amit Paley, CEO & Executive Director of The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ+ youth, for a celebratory lighting ceremony. PARAMOUNT GLOBAL (Nasdaq: PARA), too, visited the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square on Tuesday, May 10th to have the cast ring the Opening Bell to open the markets.

In a first of its kind celebration in support of the iconic all-winners season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, a special event, too, was hosted at Saks Fifth Avenue, ruvealing exclusive window displays uniquely inspired by the season 7 queens. Each queen was on display in their custom designed window for the grand ruveal before walking the red carpet for photos and interviews. Check out each window below.

Finally, on May 10 in celebration of the upcoming all-winners season, an exclusive outdoor premiere screening event and panel discussion was hosted by resident judge Michelle Visage with each of the queens. They enjoyed the first episode under the stars, and then each queen discussed what it was like to join such a powerhouse cast and teased what viewers can expect with the season.

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars Season 7 premieres Friday, May 20th, exclusively on Paramount+.

Today we wake up with three important pieces of news for the residents of New York City.

LISC NYC’s Developer of Color Training Program

If you are a person of color and would like to learn how you can become a business developer, then read carefully and learn about LISC NYC’s Developer of Color Training Program:

The NYC Local Initiatives Support Corporation supports local champions to foster equal and equitable development of underinvested neighborhoods. The purpose of LISC NYC’s Developer of Color Training Program is to help minority-owned business enterprises expand their space and access projects related to home investment. As these city affordable housing projects grow, more market opportunities arise.

This program takes the long view and is aided by community assets through collective efforts that bring together the public, private, and non-profit sectors. Besides, the training program will help developers of color not only improve their networks or gain access to capital, but also extend their development capacity to expand existing businesses and contracts. This project serves to create and implement solutions that match financial resources and best practices to foster community development thrusts, using LISC’s extensive national network of programs and expertise.

This collaborative success story communicates the show’s vision for how they address the grief and challenges facing New York City neighborhoods nowadays. Visit HERE for further information.

Get Set Cannabis Workshops

New York regulators are putting plans in motion to start their first marijuana outlets and are set to pass a series of rules that will give preference to people with prior marijuana convictions or those whose family members have been affected by drugs and criminalization.

The average will put them in the first position of legal holders of cannabis sales licenses for adult use, above existing medical cannabis businesses.

Cannabis prisoners are being exonerated, but they must understand how to present the paperwork so that everything is done in a legal way in order not to have any problems or annoyance with society. Visit HERE for more information on how to register and apply for a license.

TaskRabbit Jobs without Certifications

Whether you’re tackling a home improvement project or need help with a challenging task like cleaning, hiring someone is often the best deal. When it comes to finding that help, TaskRabbit can be a trusted resource to turn to.

TaskRabbit is a platform that connects Clients with Taskers (members who work for the company). Although they have different categories to choose from, it is important to note that TaskRabbit does not offer licensed professional services.

If you think your job requires a professional, clarify credentials and licenses with your Tasker. The company does not offer no guarantees regarding the registration, credit, or professional license of any Tasker. Please note that if you want your Tasker to offer services that require a professional license, you are personally likely to ensure that they comply with the appropriate laws.

Polestar Precept preview in New York City via 360 MAGAZINE

Polestar Precept

Today, Polestar Manhattan invited us to preview their Precept, exhibiting design, technology and sustainability.

“America’s newest MVP of the EV game, breaking records and necks!” – 360

Polestar revealed the Precept in February 2020 as a declaration of intent. Showcasing the future direction of Polestar’s design, sustainability and technology, the concept makes a strong statement about the brand’s intent. In October 2020, Polestar confirmed that the Precept will be put into production in the future. Polestar is documenting this journey in a YouTube series, “Precept: from concept to car.” In November 2021, Polestar confirmed that the production version of Precept will be known as Polestar 5.

Polestar continues to believe in collaborating with experts to accelerate development and provide customers with the best available technologies. Precept’s interior is defined by sustainability and offered an opportunity to work with new materials and processes. Similarly, the evolution of the HMI builds on current partnerships which maximise the integration of expertise.

Sustainable new interior materials balance modern high-tech luxury with reduced environmental impact. These sustainable materials include recycled PET bottles, reclaimed fishing nets and recycled cork vinyl. A flax-based composite developed by external partner Bcomp Ltd is featured in many interior and some exterior parts. Polestar’s ambition is to bring much of this sustainability into production.

The next generation HMI, powered by Android, builds on Polestar’s close collaboration with Google. An enlarged, portrait-oriented 15-inch centre touch screen complements a 12.5-inch driver display, and the two are linked by an illuminated blade that encompasses the entire interior. In this execution, the unique Polestar emblem floats holographically inside a solid piece of Swedish crystal between the rear seat headrests.

Supporting the advancement of a personalised and dynamic digital interface, the instrument panel also hosts an array of smart sensors. Eye tracking will allow the car to monitor the driver’s gaze and adjust the content of the various screens accordingly. Proximity sensors also enhance the usability of the centre display when driving.

The sculpted form of the Polestar Precept sets the tone for future Polestar vehicles. The vehicle’s proportions define its presence with restrained surfacing and a focus on aerodynamic efficiency.

The front grille is replaced by the Polestar SmartZone, representing a shift from breathing to seeing. An area which once channelled air to radiators and the internal combustion engine now houses technology for safety sensors and driver assistance functions. Purposefully gathered behind a transparent panel dedicated to intelligent hardware are two radar sensors and a high definition camera. The LiDAR pod, mounted atop the glass roof, is given optimal visibility as a next step towards increased driving assistance. The Thor’s Hammer LED headlight signature evolves with separated elements, taking on a dynamic, more robotic and brand-defining interpretation.

Precept features an integrated front wing above the SmartZone which accelerates air flow over the long bonnet. This allows air to attach itself to the surface earlier, which improves aerodynamic efficiency and thus improves the vehicle’s range. At the rear, the wide light-blade spans the entire width of the car, extending into vertical aero-wings – another aerodynamic feature and a nod to light-weight design.

With product development now underway, Polestar has confirmed it will produce Precept in China, where a new production facility will be established. The aim is to ensure the facility will be climate neutral and one of the most intelligent and connected automotive production facilities in the world.

Woodstock Music × Art Fair

The Museum at Bethel Woods calls for 1969 Woodstock attendees to offer oral histories for upcoming exhibit

The Museum at Bethel Woods, the National Register Historic Site of the 1969 Woodstock Music & Art Fair, is working on compiling an archive of oral histories of Woodstock from the people who experienced it firsthand. The Museum is asking festival alumni to connect, and arrange for their stories to be heard and recorded. The goal is for these combined narratives to tell the untold story of the festival, preserving them for generations to come.

“Realizing the average age of Woodstock attendees is 75 years old, now is the time to find the lost stories of the festival and save their place in history,” said Neal V. Hitch, Senior Curator, The Museum at Bethel Woods. “In order for the impact of Woodstock to be felt 100 years from now, collecting oral histories of this iconic festival is critical. It is our goal to find as many attendees as possible and document their firsthand experiences, which will also inspire the next generation of young artists, musicians, and music lovers.”

If you or someone you know was one of the almost half a million people who stood in the crowd of Max Yasgur’s farm listening to Santana, swam in Fillippini’s Pond, left a note on the Message Tree, or got stuck in traffic on 17B, The Museum at Bethel Woods wants to hear from you. With the goal to gather at least 4,500 oral histories, every perspective is valuable in rounding out the picture of the greatest festival of all time.

The award-winning 7,000 square foot Museum at Bethel Woods sits on the 800-acre campus of the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts–the site of the Woodstock festival. Its permanent collection and special exhibits are a window to the 1960’s and the music cultural phenomenon. Bethel Woods is dedicated to preserving and presenting that history in a way that captivates audiences across generations.

IAM NYC Opening

IAM is the inverted experience of the self as reflected through the eyes of established and upcoming local and international artists. The museum’s mission is to showcase the various facades of New York City through an inverted perspective, forcing audiences to re-envision the city’s topologies and structures in a new and creative light.

The inverted museum welcomes its guests in the heart of Soho, one of New York City’s best-known neighborhoods for fine art and culture. The museum’s lobby acts as an orientation point, a place where individuals can gain more insight into various art installations and their historical relevance to the city. The IAM Inverted Art Museum encourages individuals to tap into the complex spectrum of human emotion while they traverse through an array of vibrant exhibition rooms. As they are guided through these thematic rooms, time halts, and guests become fully immersed in the singular moment of time as the visual storytelling of each exhibition unravels in front of them.

The uniqueness of IAM comes from the museum’s ability to capture a visual record of history, igniting feelings of nostalgia, happiness and curiosity in its audiences. Each room acts as a different urban landscape unfolding the various personalities of New York City. From the gritty to the luxurious, the uptown bound trains to the empty apartments in Billionaires Row, the unexpected nature of the inverted rooms can be described as physical surrealism, showing off the unanticipated and often illogical juxtapositions of the city’s identity. 

IAM recognizes that each unique piece of art acts as an entryway to the artist’s cultural, political, and socio-economic circumstances. Culture and art are created by ordinary people, and their collective experiences shape the perception of the world around them. Similarly, New York City’s art scene is multifaceted, a melting pot of artistic expression that transcends any physical bounds dictated by borders or bodies of water. The museum wishes to highlight each artist’s unique perception of the world through an inverted lens, encouraging its viewers to pause and digest each and every little detail that surrounds them. IAM hopes to be a place of inspiration for artists and visitors alike, allowing artists to create work as their full unique selves while promoting tolerance, respect, and equality.

Our exhibition rooms

  • IAM Statue of Liberty
  • Oversized Kids Bedroom
  • Authentic New York’s Antique Shop
  • Plasma Room inspired by Nikola Tesla
  • Diorama inspired by Stan Lee
  • LEGO® Bathroom

Exhibition rooms of New York Artists’ work

Staying true to its mission of visual storytelling, the IAM Inverted Art Museum is also prioritizing work installations by Ukrainian artists in the hopes of aiding those who are affected by the unjust war. A percentage of ticket purchases go towards rebuilding schools and helping kids in Ukraine. IAM works directly with a number of charities to ensure that all donations are going towards rebuilding Ukraine and aiding families in need. The museum will also hold an auction for a large-scale Ukrainian flag built out of lego blocks and 100% of the profits made from the auction will go towards war relief efforts in Ukraine.

The IAM Inverted Art Museum is also proud to be supporting Ukrainian artists seeking to come to the United States Under the O-1B visa, otherwise known as the Artists Visa. Selected artists will receive assistance with navigating through the O-1B petition process. Please note that we do not cover the cost of application fees or lawyers, rather we help applicants fill out their petitions as an alternative route to hiring a lawyer. Our team members have first-hand experience with applying for the O-1B visa and can help applicants with the completion of their own Visa application.

Although artists from all around the world are welcome to apply to this initiative on our website HERE, we are currently prioritizing Ukrainian artists.
