16-Year Old Wants To Be The Youngest African-American Chess Grandmaster

There were plenty of signs that 16-year-old Joshua Colas was a chess prodigy. "He told me one day, 'Daddy, I can play you blindfolded,'" his father Guy Colas recounted to The Huffington Post. "And I said, 'You sure? I've never seen you practice.'" Joshua was right; he could not only match his dad but beat … Continue reading 16-Year Old Wants To Be The Youngest African-American Chess Grandmaster

Toolkit: How to Make a Proper Introduction for a Collaboration

#PhoenIIXSistahs™ || CultivateCurateCommUNITY

Own Your Content

This toolkit is a growing library of wisdom that highlights the hurdles of owning your content and building your platform. We not only curate the wisdom from creative leaders and artists, but also from the community—a balance of both, like cheese and wine—so that you’re supported and empowered to build your home on the internet.

In the last decade, many different platforms and methods for connection have influenced the way we communicate. And yet, email is still the most effective, prevalent tool that opens possibilities and sparks relationships. Nowadays, a thoughtful email is an art. When done well, it is a delight to read and creates an impression about the sender.

Thoughtfulness takes time and effort. People have become attuned to feeling emails that lack warmth, personality, or clarity. Like a stranger that bumps into you without saying ‘excuse me,’ weak emails are the cold shoulder of the internet.

‘The Gentrification Game’ Puts Boston’s Stark Changes In Sharp Relief

AiLiRox on AiLiWeb

Young Artist, Tory Bullock’s interactive game idea to help people understand the issues around Gentrification at the former Citizen’s Bank in Upham’s Corner, Dorchester. 

The mission of the project is to spark discussion around the city’s current housing crisis. As Boston’s burgeoning population demands additional affordable options, lower-income residents struggle most with high rents and displacement. In August 2018, the median rent, according to a Zillow survey, for a one-bedroom apartment in Boston was $2,366 — an exorbitant price for many. Mayor Marty Walsh’s housing plan calls for the preservation and construction of affordable apartments and home ownership opportunities to relieve renters and would-be owners. By 2030, the city aims to bring the total number of income-restricted units from 54,000 to 70,000.

Check out Tory Bullock’s “Gentrification Game” continues on Thursday, Nov. 1 and Friday, Nov. 2 from 4 to 7 p.m. at 572 Columbia Rd. in Dorchester. Admission is…
