Live and Breathe the Film Industry: Israeli’s Star Artist Eva Lanska’s take on the Film Industry and NFT Spaces

The NFT space is a haven for art lovers and artists all over the world. Our recent conversation with the Israeli star Eva Lanska provides an intimate understanding of her experience in the NFT space and the film industry. Being an Israeli film director and artist,  she sells and promotes her work in the NFT space while also working as a film director in her Tel Aviv studio. Eva claims that film direction and art have been her passions since the age of seven, but it has taken her twenty years to realize her dream. She discusses her struggles as a female director and artist, highlighting the challenges she has faced in the industry. “Art, film, this is what we choose, these are our lives, one day the door will open and we will become who we want to be, and we will take our place,” she encourages women in the industry. Eva reveals that she does not come from an influential family of Hollywood personalities and as such, she has had to work her way into the Hollywood family.

The story behind the exceptional woman reveals the reality in Hollywood. “If you do not come from a famous Hollywood family, you have to work extra hard to get noticed in the industry…because the Hollywood inner circle is a very small, closely knit family,” Eva states. “Before getting noticed, one has to live and breathe Hollywood,” she confesses. We all admire the stunning Israeli artist for navigating the difficult path into Hollywood’s inner circle. “Talent is simply not enough, knowledge is not enough; you must become one with the community,” Eva says, possibly the most candid advice she has for people trying to make it in the entertainment industry.

The conversation quickly shifts to the NFT space and what it means to artists around the world. Eva describes the NFT space as a platform that offers artists the freedom of expression. At first, she finds it intimidating, particularly as a woman new to the platform. It becomes even more intimidating for her when she meets award-winning scholars, but she overcomes her fears and eventually establishes a reputable name in the industry. Eva also expresses her dissatisfaction with the platform’s marginalization of women, claiming that their projects often take longer to be approved or funded. “We can only go forward, never look back, and we are gonna go till we achieve,” she encourages women in the industry. “Stopping, giving up is not an option,” she adds, “we have to keep going and moving forward.”

Miami Art Week is a celebration and appreciation of the world’s best art collections, it is no surprise that Eva Lanska’s collection is featured. The NFT exhibition will display some of Eva’s large-scale sculptures and paintings, along with Michael Benisty, WhIsBe, Noah Becker, Lauren Baker, Maxim Zhestkov, and more, at the Bagatelle Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Photographic works from Lanska’s Gematria collection and The Existential Choice are featured exclusively at the NFT event. For the opening event, Eva collaborated with SmartMedia to produce a special limited edition (1000) NFT from her Gematria series called Gematria 596. She proudly describes this piece as a symbol of purity. Eva’s art is celebrated for the messages it conveys, she has previously used art to address gender equality and societal injustices. This event serves as a reminder of the powerful woman Eva Lanska is and how her art will leave a lasting impression on the world.

How to Map Multiple Locations on Google Maps

Google Maps is one of the most popular navigation platforms, and for a good reason. It takes plenty of data from various sources, including websites, users, and businesses, offering it as an integrative platform for all users. Google Maps is reliable and easy to use, making it efficient for small businesses wanting to develop custom maps. Currently, Google Maps allows users to pin multiple locations simultaneously, although it’s a lesser-known functionality.

How to Pin Multiple Locations with Google Maps?

You’ll need a list of all locations to map multiple locations on Google Maps. The address file should include all individual addresses but can also include detailed information like latitude and longitude data. Your spreadsheet will need at least two columns of data, although the order of the columns doesn’t matter.

To start:

  1. Visit the Google Maps website by entering maps.google.com in your web browser.
  2. Sign into your Google account and select the menu icon in the top corner of the screen.
  3. From there, choose the “Your Places” button.

Locate the “Maps” tab to start building your map, and select the “Create Map” icon on the bottom menu. Give your map a name and add an adequate description. To locate the import button, click on the three dots and open the layer menu. Select the file that contains your spreadsheet data and choose to open the file. Google Maps will automatically plot all points onto the map.

Customizing Your Google Map

Unfortunately, Google Maps offers fewer custom options than third-party programs, but they present a few options. If custom options are essential to your company (for example, custom colors, design, and mapping options), consider purchasing a program like Maptive. This program allows complete personalization while integrating with Google Maps. After locations upload to the program and appear on the map, users can personalize the physical appearance of the map within the settings.

To get started with Google Maps, here are a few customization options available:

Adding Individual Markers

If you’d like to add an additional marker to the map, click the “Add Marker” button on the page and select the location you’d like the marker. Users can personalize the marker color if they want the new marker to stand out.

Changing the Style and Color of Pins

When you’d like to change the style and color of your pins, simply click the “Uniform Style” button and choose another styling option available.

Adding Additional Points of Interest

Adding points of interest to your map can connect users with additional components to your map. These items might include restaurants, hotels, businesses, etc. To add a point of interest, perform a simple search for the location in the search bar. Select the location you’d like to add from the drop-down results. Choosing a location will focus on the point of interest on the map, with the option of adding the site as a marker on your map.

Adding a Custom Google Map Style

Users can change how a map looks by choosing the “Base Map” button. This button will create a menu where users can change the map style. Choose the map style that works best for your business, or return the map to default settings by clicking “Reset to Default.”

How to Search Through Your Markers

Google Maps currently offers a built-in search function that allows users to search by category, label, or location name. Use the main search bar at the top of the application to search for your marker’s name, address, or category.

How to Navigate Between Markers

Clicking on a marker within Google Maps will bring an option “Directions to Here” icon. Selecting this icon will start creating a route within the map. To create a route between two markers, click on another marker icon. Users can also add custom directions to the map by choosing the “Add Directions” button at the top of the software.

How to Share or Embed Your Map

When you’re happy with the map, sharing is relatively simple. Start by clicking on the “+ Share” button. If you’d like to add your custom map to a professional blog or website, choose the “Embed” button and pick the size you want. To embed the map, copy the text in the box and paste that code into the HTML.

How to Find People Online

There are many reasons why you’d want to try and find a person online. For example, you may want to reconnect with long-lost relatives or friends from school or college, or there may be some new business contacts you’d like to make. 

These days it’s easier than ever to find a person if they want to be found, that is.

With the help of the internet, numerous people search tools are available to you. Here are a few different options.

Google

As obvious as it may sound, start your search with Google. You’ll need to be a little savvier than just typing in a person’s name and hitting enter, though. 

The person’s name and city, school, or employer (if known) will narrow down the search results.

Google also has advanced boolean search options that you can use to limit the results.

Social media

If a person wants to be found, they’ll almost always have a social media presence. Globally nearly 40% of the population have a Facebook profile, and 82% of North Americans do.

Don’t despair if you can’t find them on Facebook. Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, and TikTok are gaining the users that Facebook loses. So spread your social media net further, and you’ll have more success.

School search sites

Finding former school pals is slightly more manageable as you already have more information. For example, you know the years they were there and possibly even clubs and associations they may have been in. 

There are sites dedicated to school searches. Alumni.net and Classmates.com are two of the biggest and have been around almost since the internet began.

Family trees

To find a long-lost relative, there are resources available there too. If a family member has put the time and effort into compiling an online family tree, that’s an excellent place to start.

Ancestry.com is the biggest of these sites. Take it a step further with AncestryDNA. A simple DNA test could discover relatives you didn’t even know you had and the one you’re looking for.

MyHeritage.com is a similar site that claims to have 1400 genealogical databases to search from.

Reverse searches

Reverse searches are gaining in popularity. If you already have some contact information or even a photograph of the person, a reverse search could get you more details.

If you have a phone number or an email address, there are websites where you can enter the details. They’ll provide you with further information on the registered owner.

Photographs are an excellent way of finding someone online. Even Google has a reverse image search function. So if that photo has been uploaded online, you’ll be able to match it and gain more data about the person.

LinkedIn

Making business connections is easier if you have a LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn makes it very clear they are not to be considered social media

Yes, they are a social network, but their role isn’t to entertain. It’s to form business connections, a social sales tool and claims to be the best and biggest referral engine on the planet. 

The difference between LinkedIn and social media is that you connect via other people. It’s based on the 6 degrees of separation concept. You may not directly know the person you want to contact, but someone you connect with does know them. 

Public records

Unless a person really doesn’t want to be found and is an expert at covering their tracks, they’ll have some form of public record.

An excellent site to use is BeenVerified.com. It’s primarily used to run background checks on people. 

Unlike many other sites mentioned, you can’t actually connect with the person from here, but contact information may appear in search results. Therefore, this site is beneficial if you only have vehicle or property details.

Get online and get searching

Narrowing down how to find someone online depends on how you know or wish to connect with them.

Always begin with a Google search; this may negate the need to try anything further. Social media is your next stop, especially if that person wants to be found.

Long lost school friends or relatives may be able to be reconnected via alumni or ancestry sites. And you can make business connections successfully via LinkedIn.

If people don’t want to be found, for whatever reason, that’s their prerogative. However, somebody they know may be able to provide more details about them. Don’t give up.

Former Harvard Business School Professor Steven S. Rogers pushes his book A Letter to My White Friends and Colleagues via 360 MAGAZINE.

A Letter to My White Friends – Steven S. Rogers

What You Can Do Right Now to Help the Black Community 



From the life, professional experiences, and research of former Harvard Business School professor Steven S. Rogers comes his boldly stated, A Letter to My White Friends and Colleagues. This informative epistle investigates the causes of racial wealth disparity in the United States and provides solutions for addressing it. Through extensive data and historical research, anecdotes, teaching, and case studies, it presents practical ways White people can work with and help the Black community. It teaches readers that eliminating the $153,000 wealth gap between Black and White people is the solution to over 75% of our problems and offers solutions to help improve Black-White racial relations in the United States. 

In straightforward language, filled with facts, stories, advice, and sometimes even humor, A Letter to My White Friends and Colleagues encourages every White person to share his/her wealth with the Black community—plain and simple. This book recommends that you spend a portion of your annual household budget with Black-owned companies. If more money is spent on Black-owned businesses, those companies can grow and create more jobs for Black people. Rogers also proposes White people make large savings deposits into Black-owned banks. These are the financial institutions that are the backbone of the Black community that provides loans to the Black community for businesses, education, automobiles, and home mortgages. 

And finally, he resolutely encourages White people to support government reparations to Black Americans who are descendants of Black men and women, who were enslaved from 1619 to 1865. 

During our introspective conversation, Rogers educates our audience on the following: 

  • Disrupt the societal norms that have been so pervasive and implement simple changes to close the racial wealth divide.  
  • Understand the root causes of racial disparities in America 
  • Discover how they can personally contribute to reducing the inequality between Black and White people in the United States today 
  • Understand why it is important to redirect their spending to Black-owned institutions to help decrease the racial wealth gap 
  • Understand the politics of financial apartheid by sharing real-world examples of why simple things are made unnecessarily difficult because of skin color 
  • Why many in the black community are feeling racial fatigue and how to help turn this around 

“Steven Rogers is a brilliant and courageous thinker who makes us unsettled in order to get us to be real forces for good!” 
Cornel West 


“Steven Rogers brings a unique perspective to America’s long-standing challenge over the issues of race. Educated at Williams and Harvard Business School, he has leveraged his education, his intellect, and his ambition to achieve great success in both business and academia. From his professional perches, Rogers offers highly valuable advice to help diminish, if not erase, racial bias in our society. We can and need to do better, and Rogers’s prescriptions for the privileged among us is a solid roadmap to do just that.” 
John A. Byrne, former Executive Editor of Businessweek magazine and Editor-in-Chief of Fast Company magazine, currently CEO and Editor-in-Chief of C-Change Media 


“This book is a comprehensive accounting of the ongoing effects of racism. Rogers brings his finance and business expertise to explain the legacy of systemic exclusions on the current gaps in wealth. Not only does he cover the facts and the history with meticulous care, but he also proposes solutions for businesses, individuals, and governments focused on tangible remedies. This book is a must-read not just for Rogers’s white colleagues, but for anyone interested in being a part of the solution.” 
Mehrsa Baradaran, author of The Color of Money and Professor of Law at UC Irvine School of Law 


“Steven S. Rogers established the act without hesitation in plain language. Not surprisingly, I and many of our marginalized advocates will take action, calling for the well-deserved reparations to be made. It is time for our ancestors to receive justice for all the financial burdens that systemic racism in America has created. I am literally in contact with Congressman Ritchie Torres as my thumbs firmly press on the smartphone glass.” —Vaughn Lowery, President of 360 MAGAZINE, an NGLCC certified LGBT business enterprise.

Seven celebrities that are changing the world through charity 

Knowing where to look for help with the various issues you’re facing is one thing, but having access to actual resources that are available to you is another. Awareness tells you where to look, but it’s charity that ensures there’s something of benefit to you when you get there. 

To inspire you to make a difference in your own personal way, we’ve put together a quick list of seven celebrities who are doing more than their fair share to help make the world a better place, each one using their time and energy to make a difference.

Bono founded ONE 

Deciding you want to be the driving force behind a global project to eradicate extreme poverty and preventable disease is great, but setting a deadline of 2030 to do it is really stepping up to the plate. Bono has done exactly that with his foundation and is continuing to raise awareness as one of the world’s best known philanthropists. It’s not just about the amount of money he donates personally — he’s someone who has lent his voice to so many good causes over the years that the world cannot help but sit up and take notice whenever he speaks. A true inspiration for anyone looking to make a real difference in the world. 

Miley Cyrus heads to Haiti 

The poorest country in the western hemisphere has never recovered or managed to rebuild after a devastating earthquake that rocked it to its very core. The fact it lies so close to the world’s richest country, and yet seems to be living in a completely different world, is a sad indictment of the state that humanity finds itself in right now. With pop superstars like Miley Cyrus lending their fame and fortune to raise awareness of the plight of an entire nation, we can have a little renewed hope that things will not remain this way forever. 

Oprah Winfrey is empowering South African women 

Oprah is known for her generosity with time and money, helping with things as diverse as giving away new cars and raising awareness of responsible gambling. But nowhere is her generosity more acutely felt than in South Africa. This is a country still very much coming to terms with the economic reality of moving beyond apartheid, and it’s a country where whole sections of society are still being left behind in their droves. By empowering the next generation of black women, Oprah hopes to massively improve literacy rates, reduce teenage pregnancy, and show women that they can be anything, and anyone, they want to be. 

John Cena is the king of the Make-A-Wish Foundation 

The superstar wrestler and Hollywood movie star is a busy man, not least because he’s long held the record for the most wishes granted by the incredible Make-A-Wish Foundation. His work schedule never gets in the way of his time reaching out to children who deserve something to smile about and a memory they can hold onto. His down-to-earth demeanor and flexibility have already been written about widely, and we’re definitely in agreement with those who spoke about him before us. 

George Clooney co-founded ‘Not On Our Watch’ 

Sudan may not be the place you’d expect to find this Hollywood icon in, and yet he’s been making regular visits for years. Clooney’s humanitarian work often flies under the radar, with many not even realizing he’s actually a co-founder of Not On Our Watch. This charitable organization is passionately committed to ending the suffering and misery of an entire nation, one step at a time. Civil unrest, natural disasters and widespread famine have all contributed to one of the lowest life expectancies anywhere in the world. The sooner that changes, the better. 

Taylor Swift reads to sick children 

Something as simple as using your voice to tell a story is sometimes all it takes to change someone’s day, which is exactly what Taylor Swift does. By spending time reading, she’s not only helping provide motivation and strength to children in need, but she’s also using her profile to raise awareness of the importance of these types of community outreach projects

Katy Perry raises awareness for Vietnamese children 

Last but not least, this pop queen and media personality can often be found helping raise money and awareness for the plight of the children of Vietnam. This is a country still recovering from a war with the U.S. more than 50 years ago, and it’s a country in which young people can only dream of having the types of opportunities in life that so many of us take for granted. 

Thanks for reading this far. We hope this list inspires you to do your bit on helping others. Whether it’s as simple as raising awareness on social media or raising money with an in-person sponsorship activity, you really can make a difference.

DOCTOR STRANGE #1 by Jed MacKay & Pasqual Ferry via 360 MAGAZINE.

DOCTOR STRANGE #1

THE MASTER OF THE MYSTIC ARTS RETURNS TO RESHAPE YOUR REALITY IN NEW DOCTOR STRANGE SERIES!

Jed MacKay and Pasqual Ferry launch a new DOCTOR STRANGE ongoing series this March

Jed MacKay’s acclaimed work on the Doctor Strange mythos has captivated readers over the past year, and this March, a thrilling new chapter begins. Spinning out of the character’s terrifying demise in Death of Doctor Strange and Clea’s time as Sorcerer Supreme in Strange comes an all-new ongoing series for Stephen Strange where he’ll resume his duties as Marvel’s Master of the Mystic Arts!

This time around, MacKay will be joined by superstar artist Pasqual Ferry, known for his stylish work on recent titles like Namor: Conquered Shores and Spider-Man: Spider’s Shadow. These two talents have devised a grand plan for Doctor Strange centered around a shocking mystery that strikes at the very heart of Strange’s legacy and purpose. The journey that follows will harken back to the iconic hero’s psychedelic and otherworldly storytelling, taking readers to places only Strange would dare to go and introducing enemies only he could hope to defeat, including a brand-new threat that Strange shares a personal connection with. In honor of this new saga, Doctor Strange will be donning a revamped costume designed by the legendary Alex Ross, who will also be gracing the series with breathtaking covers! 

Stephen Strange is back! Reunited with Clea and Wong, it’s back to business as usual for the Sorcerer Supreme. Have your children fallen into a deep nightmarish slumber? Are demonic refugees invading your home? Is your husband possessed by a satanic entity? Then call Doctor Strange! But when someone else begins to issue their own dark justice on Strange’s mightiest foes, Strange embarks on an interdimensional search for answers, only to discover the culprit may be closer to home than he thinks…

“After Death of Doctor Strange, after Strange, we open the next act in our ongoing saga of the Sorcerer Supreme in DOCTOR STRANGE #1!” MacKay proclaimed. “It’s been really exciting to have the opportunity to not only continue exploring the magical side of the Marvel Universe with the inhabitants of 177A Bleecker Street, but to follow the lives of the Stranges as the last year and a half has put them through the wringer. Pasqual has been putting together a truly magical book, and I’m super psyched to show people what’s in store for Stephen and Clea Strange- and of course, we won’t be giving them any time off after recent events…”

“When I started working for Marvel, there were three comics I had always wanted to draw:Fantastic FourSpider-Man, and Doctor Strange,” Ferry said. “Why Doctor Strange? Because his stories include all the elements I love as an artist—the fantasy, science fiction, and imagination. Above all, the fact that I could look at Steve Ditko’s work as a reference really motivates me! When he drew Doctor Strange, all the utopian and imaginary sceneries were incredible. So this is a very special moment in my career, and I’m looking forward to seeing where the character is going to take us with this new narrative. I know a lot of artists, including myself, consider Doctor Strange a challenge, like there is a need to add something new to the character because it offers you that possibility. For me, Doctor Strange is a big challenge, but I embrace it.”

Enter a new reality alongside comic books’ greatest magical hero when DOCTOR STRANGE #1 hits stands in March! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

Lectra extends its software offer to material traceability
and reinforces its position in Industry 4.0

Lectra announces the signature of an agreement to acquire 51% of the capital and voting rights of the Dutch company TextileGenesis. As a major player in the fashion, automotive, and furniture markets, Lectra contributes with boldness and passion to the Industry 4.0 revolution by providing software, equipment, data, and services to brands, manufacturers, and retailers.

Founded in 2018, TextileGenesis provides a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that enables fashion brands and sustainable textile manufacturers to ensure a reliable, secure and fully digital mapping of their textiles, from the fiber to the consumer, and thereby guarantee their authenticity and origins. This solution ensures the traceability of TextileGenesis’ customers’ entire sustainable textile supply chain in order to meet the demands for transparency, driven by changes in legislation in a growing number of countries and by growing consumer awareness, thereby encouraging sustainable development.  

Its innovative traceability mechanism, which addresses both ends of the textile value chain, as well as its network of partners for material certification, and its technology platform guarantee the exchange and tracking of reliable and secure data throughout a material’s life cycle.

Several of the world’s most prestigious fashion brands as well as leading sustainable fiber producers are already convinced of the value of TextileGenesis’ innovative offer, which enables the connection of multiple actors of the sustainable fashion ecosystem on this platform.

“Fashion is one of the most fragmented industries due to its long and complex value chain, which makes it opaque to brands, suppliers, subcontractors, and consumers” says Amit Gautam, founder of TextileGenesis. “Today, only 19% of fashion industry actors have visibility of their value chain, and this visibility is often partial. Many brands, especially those that have set ambitious sustainability goals, face a real challenge in terms of supply chain transparency. If they cannot track the life cycle of certified materials, they will not be able to justify the sustainability of their products,” he adds. 

“Having the highest ethical standards, guaranteeing the well-being of our employees, and preserving the environment are embedded in Lectra’s DNA and guide our daily decisions. Through our technology, acquisitions, and partnerships, we aim to empower our customers to work in a more socially and environmentally responsible way,” says Daniel Harari, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lectra. “We look forward to joining forces with TextileGenesis’ talented teams to accelerate the development of their sustainable material traceability solution and deepen our knowledge of the textile value chain in the fashion industry,” he concludes.

At the beginning of January, Lectra will acquire 51% of TextileGenesis for 15.2 million euros. The acquisition of the remaining share capital and voting rights is expected to take place in two stages, in 2026 and 2028, for an amount that will be calculated based on a multiple of the 2025 and 2027 recurring revenues.
