Pay 2 Play Pasadena Screening @Pay2PlayTV

Thursday, November 13, 2014 at 07:00 PM

Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, CA
Armory Center Pasadena

PAY 2 PLAY follows filmmaker John Ennis’ quest to find a way out from under the Pay 2 Play System, where Politicians reward their donors with even larger sums from the public treasury — through contracts, tax cuts, and deregulation. Along the way, he journeys through high drama on the Ohio campaign trail, uncovers the secret history of the game Monopoly, and explores the underworld of L.A. street art on a humorous odyssey that reveals how much of a difference one person can make. PAY 2 PLAY: Democracy’s High Stakes is the layman’s guidebook to taking back our democracy.

Pay 2 Play will be screened by the Conscientious Projector monthly film series, in association with the Armory Center and sponsored by Sustainable World, a Peace and Justice Ministry of All Saints Church.

Google Inbox – Invite New Email Platform #googleinbox Invites in eBay

Google is introducing something new. It’s called Inbox. Years in the making, Inbox is by the same people who brought you Gmail, but it’s not Gmail: it’s a completely different type of inbox, built to fit your life.

If you have a Gmail account, send an email to inbox@google.com to be put on a list.

Inbox by Gmail is a whole new experience designed by the Gmail team to help you stay organized and get back to what matters. Learn more on the Official Gmail Blog.

If you’re a new user of Inbox by Gmail, welcome! If you haven’t already, take a look at some of the key features:

Bundles: Do you spend a lot of time organizing your emails? Inbox automatically bundles related emails (like Promotions) together so you can review and deal with them all at once. You can bundle your own labels too.

Highlights: Inbox highlights what you need to know without even opening the message. This includes photos, events, flights, purchases, and more.

Reminders: Have you ever sent an email to yourself to remember something? Now you can add your own Reminders to the top of your inbox to help you get things done.

Snooze: Inbox lets you Snooze emails or Reminders until you want to deal with them: next week, when you get home, or whenever you choose.

Inbox works with Gmail, so your messages, labels and filters (to name a few) will all be there. Inbox is not a replacement of Gmail, it’s a completely different experience to help you tackle the problem of how to manage your inbox.

Also, you can search on ebay as there are invites being sold ranging from $15 to $200.

City governments around the world have started to release public datasets that can help communities and businesses address issues in areas such as transportation, healthcare, and economic development. This informal convening will give city officials, application developers, thought-leaders, residents and academics in greater Pasadena a chance to learn and share what’s in progress and to explore questions that need to be answered to move forward together.

Come join us for lunch on Saturday during Connect Week to help us answer these questions:

  • Which City datasets are the most important?  How are they being used? How should they be used?
  • What are the elements that define transparency?  What is the difference between transparency and open data?
  • What “machine readable” standards exist?  What needs to be done to standardize formats both within a city and across cities?
  • How useful are comparisons of open data progress across cities? (e.g. the US City Open Data Census.)
  • What are the pros and cons behind a developing a regional Open Data Portal?
  • What is a successful hackathon? Should the City host another hackathon next Spring?
  • What could be the role of a city-based Open Data Meet-Up?

Audience:  Anyone interested in Open Data and its potential impact.  Don’t know much about Open Data and Civic Hackathons?  Come learn over lunch. The topic is relevant for anyone in the greater Pasadena community and beyond.

Co-Hosted By:  City of Pasadena & Open DataLA, a Project of USC Annenberg Center on Communication Leadership and Policy and the USC Sol Price School of Public Policy.

Citi, Live Nation and Yahoo Introduce New Backstage with Citi Interview Series Featuring Katie Couric

Web Series on Yahoo Music Kicks Off With Conversation With Lady Antebellum on Friday, October 24

NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – Oct 23, 2014) – Citi(R) Private Pass, Live Nation Entertainment and Yahoo today announced Backstage with Citi, a new exclusive behind the scenes interview web series on Yahoo Music (https://music.yahoo.com/live-nation-presents/backstage/). Citi is now an official sponsor of Yahoo Live, a pioneering music experience on Yahoo, including the Live Nation Channel which offers fans a live concert everyday for a year. The new series Backstage with Citi is an extension of Citi’s long-standing relationship with Live Nation.

For nearly a decade, Citi has offered thousands of live events annually to their cardmembers through the Citi Private Pass program. Now, Citi is offering behind the scenes backstage access available anywhere, anytime and segments of the interview will be exclusively available on www.citiprivatepass.com for 48 hours before it posts on Yahoo.

“Our customers love the access that we offer across live music and entertainment, and with Backstage with Citi we are able to pull back the curtain even further putting our cardmembers in the room with artists when they sit for a comprehensive interview with one of the nation’s top interviewers and on one of the most popular media platforms,” said Jennifer Breithaupt, Citi’s SVP of Entertainment Marketing.

Yahoo News Global Anchor Katie Couric will interview a select number of artists who will be showcased as part of the series, giving Citi card members and music fans a glimpse behind the scenes with in-depth, compelling, interviews with some of the biggest names in music. Yahoo Music editor Lyndsey Parker will also bring Citi customers up close and personal with some of their favorite entertainers.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Citi as a presenter of this unique interview series on Yahoo,” said Darin Wolf, Executive Vice President, Live Nation Media & Sponsorships. “Throughout our successful partnership, Citi has shown a commitment to providing its customers extraordinary access to the best musical artists in the world. Backstage with Citi is a natural extension of that commitment, giving fans access to see and hear their favorite artists in perhaps their most comfortable setting — backstage.”

“We’re excited to debut Citi’s new behind the scenes interview series as we continue to bring high quality entertainment programming to our passionate audience,” said Lisa Licht, SVP, Marketing Partnerships, Yahoo. “As a sponsor of Yahoo Live, Citi will share this exclusive video content with millions of music fans on Yahoo and also leverage targeted advertising across our network.”

Grammy(R) Award-winning superstar country trio Lady Antebellum will kick off Backstage with Citi when part of their interview with Katie Couric premieres Thursday, October 23 on Citi Private Pass. The band will be discussing their fifth studio album, 747, which was released September 30, 2014 by Capitol Records Nashville. The album captures the speed and spirit of its critically acclaimed live show. O.A.R. will be the second interview, the first with Yahoo Music editor Lyndsey Parker and will premiere in early November.

“Katie is so good about digging in and really asking about the stories that inspire the music — from the studio to the stage,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “We always love chatting with her and think it’s a fun way to complement the concert experience for the fans!”

Citi offers Citi credit and debit cardmembers access to tickets to thousands of live events annually through Citi Private Pass, the bank’s entertainment access program. In 2013, Citi offered cardmembers more than 5,000 music events, ranging from preferred tickets and early access to top concert tours to curated special events with Grammy(R) award-winners and VIP experiences including pre-show performances and Q&A. Last year, Citi sponsored the Rolling Stones’ 50 & Counting Tour mobile app. In addition, Citi presented “Katy Perry’s: We Can Survive” benefit concert and exclusive cardmember pre-show experience at the famed Hollywood Bowl. Other experiences have featured artists such as Lady Gaga, Band of Horses, John Mayer, Lady Antebellum, and more.
