Hi Ana! So glad you liked the video. Yes, it is refreshing! And I feel like you do -- women do need to be mentioned as speakers and movers and shakers instead of just characters. In fact women in the field of story work need larger voices. Thanks for the comment!
Tommy Walker's comment, March 8, 2013 11:19 AM
Wow, thank you so much for sharing this! Ana, to your question about not having women speakers, we've only just started this show, and this was the second episode. We do plan on having women panelists for future episodes, and some very influential ones at that. There are some really big plans for this format for the future.

THIS POST HAS MOVED! HERE IS THE NEW LINK: https://designingliteracy.squarespace.com/literacyoftheimagination/the-valuable-links-between-stories-and-our-co 


Ahhh -- really good insights and points here in this article by Gunther Sonnenfeld that expands our typical ways of working with stories in business (transactional storytelling), and how we need to shift to transformational storytelling.


Stories provide meaning and purpose, as the above text says. Even when told for transactional purposes. But there is no reason for organizations not to also claim the higher ground.


This is a thoughtful article that touches on a few fundamental truths about storytelling, and calling us to think/act more deeply about the story work we do.


And I like the visual chart that comes along with it also!

We talk about how to spread our influence and how to build audience for our message.  Story seems to me to be one excellent way for doing that.

Food Fraud: 10 Counterfeit Products We Commonly Consume

Food Fraud: 10 Counterfeit Products We Commonly Consume | Deals Oakville | Scoop.it

Coffee, olive oil and fish are just some of the adulterated and intentionally mislabeled foods regularly passed off as something they’re not.

 

In a country where we have relatively strict labeling regulations, many food manufacturers still manage to swindle shoppers by adding fillers or diluting the real deal with less expensive ingredients, without the knowledge of the consumer. And in fact, it’s become so prevalent that the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention, a nonprofit that sets standards used by the FDA, set up a database to track the infractions. Called the Food Fraud Database (FFD), it describes food fraud as the "deliberate substitution, addition, tampering or misrepresentation of food, food ingredients or food packaging, or false or misleading statements made about a product for economic gain." It has a shocking number of entries.

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, April 7, 2013 1:13 PM

Good catches. Best advice: be discerning when you shop. Read labels carefully. Buy organic. Do research on brands you're not familiar with. Purchase fresh foods as often as possible. You can make your own orange juice.
