Connecting to Tech | The Gazette

Launching new outreach initiatives is challenging, especially for non-profits that are strapped for funds and manpower. But inclusiveness cannot be left for another day. Access to tech and educational resources is increasingly vital to career development. Co-working spaces and incubators have a unique opportunity, perhaps even an obligation, to ensure that those opportunities are available to anyone who seeks them. That includes people of all races, genders, abilities, ages, and economic backgrounds.

CoLabs create a community of leaders | The Gazette

Leadership is woven into the coworking concept, as the communities that develop around these spaces foster innovative thinking and empower members. They’re entrepreneurial hubs that can spur economic development.

Coworking spaces attract both tech professionals and creatives, which creates an atmosphere ripe for collaboration. Designers, marketing technologists, programmers, and writers can “partner up and get to know one another,” Tominsky says. Independent freelancers can refer one another for client projects, expanding their own networks and boosting the entire community.

“That happens far more in a coworking space than if you were working alone in isolation,” Tominsky says.

Supercharging the U.S. Power Supply

Environmentalists often herald electric vehicles as the cars of the future. They’re less costly to own in the long run, and they reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

Enter Nissan’s partnership with Green Charge Networks, a California company, to give Nissan Leaf batteries a second life. Japanese corporations have become leaders in green energy storage technologies and are partnering with U.S. companies to create sustainable power solutions across the country. Nissan and companies such as Toyota, Hitachi, Sharp, and others have brought their emphasis on smart, green innovation to the American communities in which they operate.

Hillary's Iowa Supporters, Both Young And Old - garnetnews.com

Healthcare is another core issue among Clinton supporters. Moore and Bellonci said they’d like to see her build on Obama’s work with the Affordable Care Act.

“I think she can progress what President Obama has started,” Bellonci said. “I think she can continue to tweak the Affordable Care Act. I don’t know how it all functions [in Washington] but she does, and I think that’s essential to make progress.”

But Clinton will also carve out her own legacy, they said.

“I don’t think anyone’s going to say she’s just an Obama clone,” Moore said. “They’re going to say she’s Hillary Clinton.”

Susan Sarandon Stumps for Sanders in Iowa

The Iraq War marked a turning point in Sarandon’s politics, she recalled. She decided then that she would not back candidates who supported the invasion and who would “be sending us off time and time again to solve problems in an unimaginative and violent way.”
