viBe Theater Experience Names New Co-Executive Directors Beryl Briane Ford and Michelan Le’Monier

viBe Theater Experience

viBe Theater Experience’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Beryl Briane Ford and Michelan Le’Monier as the organization’s new Executive Co-Directors. The organization has been under their interim leadership in this capacity since November 2021, and viBe’s Board unanimously approved their permanent appointments in March 2022. Ford and Le’Monier are well suited to lead viBe in its next chapter, having lived, institutional experience and demonstrated success in growing the organization’s operations, budget and programming. They are poised to shape, manage and inspire viBe's advancement as collaborators and in partnership with its talented staff and deeply committed Board of Directors and Junior Board. “I’m very ecstatic to be co-leading this organization with Beryl Briane! Ever since my participation in the viBeApprentices program in 2017, I knew that I wanted to contribute something to this community of artists and being in this position really brings my experiences as a participant and as a staff member full circle. As Co-Executive Director, my vision is for abundance to be a lifestyle, not a privilege for Black girls, young women, and femmes through art and wellness. viBe has grown immensely over the past few years and it’s my goal to continue to guide that growth with the support of our Board and Staff."- Michelan Le’Monier “I firmly believe that investing in the leadership of Black girls, young women, and gender expansive youth is one of many critical pathways to liberation. I am eager to build and sustain these pathways in my new role as Co-Executive Director. I came to viBe in October 2020 from The Museum of Modern Art with a desire to support viBe’s larger mission of creating safer spaces for youth to make art that’s deeply rooted in their lived experiences. It’s an honor to be amplifying their work alongside Michelan, viBe’s Staff & Board. I am thrilled to be co-leading an organization that’s responsible for nurturing the artistic & professional praxis of emerging artists, administrators, and educators. I look forward to continuing this legacy.”- Beryl Briane This shared leadership model is a living manifestation of viBe’s ethos of investing in and activating leadership opportunities for young people. So much of viBe’s work uniquely positions the organization in the larger nonprofit sector, cultivating pathways for program participants to become arts practitioners in the field, and leaders in their own right. In fact, the co-executive leadership model is not new to viBe – the organization was co-founded and led by Dana Edell and Chandra Thomas when they were both under the age of 25. Ford and Le’Monier look forward to continuing the organization’s nearly 20 year commitment to centering the voices of young Black women. Both Ford and LeMonier have tenured histories as leaders within viBe Theater Experience, having been trained and mentored by former Executive Director, Toya Lillard, as Development Associate and Operations Director respectively. “As Board Chair, I couldn’t be more proud of viBe’s growth and impact — and our new co-leaders are proof positive that our way WORKS! Inclusive and dynamic programming, an unwavering purpose, implicit trust in Black women, centering lived experiences and cultivating leaders from within is what we practice and preach.” Cheryl Overton Ford and LeMonier are committed to continuing viBe’s impact within the theater community both locally in NYC and nationally, bringing greater visibility and supporting more young people who seek to share their artistic genius with the world around them. They’re committed to deepening the organization’s advocacy work in its core areas of focus: racial equity, gender & healing justice, youth and women’s empowerment, and financial equity. Together, they will strive to ensure that viBe’s at the forefront of these issues through key partnerships with individuals, community and impact-oriented organizations, and mission-aligned corporations. With a clear vision for the present and a larger vision for viBe’s future, their appointment will preserve viBe’s historical impact while also leading the organization into a new era of growth. Their appointment demonstrates a deep commitment to centering Black women’s leadership in the arts. As an organization, viBe is dedicated to building pathways for the professional and artistic advancement of Black women. This appointment not only exemplifies this investment, it‘s also a clarion call to the larger community to consider and build up the systems and structures that will ensure the success and advancement of Black women in the arts. viBe Theater Experience produces original theater, music and media written and performed by NYC teens, young women and nonbinary youth of color about their lived experiences.

Introducing Biebs Brew! The much-anticipated next collab between Justin Bieber and Tim Hortons is a co-created French Vanilla-flavored Cold Brew coffee

Tim Hortons

The wait is almost over – starting June 6, Tim Hortons guests across Canada and the United States can try Justin Bieber’s next Tims-inspired creation! The first part of the Tims x Justin Bieber collab was focused on Justin putting his own spin on his favorite treats at Tim Hortons: bite-sized Timbits donuts. This time, Justin and Tims developed a new twist on what the iconic brand is best known for: brewing the perfect cup of coffee. In product brainstorms with the Tims team for the second collab, Justin shared that he prefers his coffee on ice, which led to working on a new flavor of Tim Hortons Cold Brew, which is made with 100 percent premium Arabica beans and is steeped for 16 hours to enhance the bold and smooth flavor. Also inspired by a slight sweet tooth and his love for hints of delicious vanilla flavoring in his coffee, Justin and our beverage innovation team developed a creamy French Vanilla flavor to go with our Cold Brew. Biebs Brew is the perfect blend of those two beloved Tims flavors. "We couldn't stop at Timbiebs, we needed a Biebs Brew too. And we are bringing both to Tims next month,” said Justin. "Doing a Tim Hortons collab had always been a dream of mine. I grew up on Tim Hortons and it's always been something close to my heart." All three Timbiebs flavors – Chocolate White Fudge, Sour Cream Chocolate Chip, and Birthday Cake Waffle flavors – will return to Tims restaurants in Canada and the United States along with Biebs Brew on June 6. Guests in the US can get a $5 Biebs Bundle*: a large Biebs Brew and a 10-pack of Timbiebs for $5 when ordered through the Tims app. In the US, Tims restaurants will also be bringing back limited quantities of Timbiebs merchandise for guests, including the beanie, fanny pack, and tote bag that were developed in collaboration with Justin. When guests buy any Tims x Justin Bieber merch they get 50% off a second item**. “Timbiebs was a huge success – truly beyond all of our expectations – and what made it so great was the authenticity of the partnership,” said Hope Bagozzi, Chief Marketing Officer for Tim Hortons. “Even before the Timbiebs collaboration, Justin had often shared with fans how he’d grown up with Tim Hortons and was obsessed with the brand. His commitment to working with us to develop a natural and authentic twist on the Tims experience is what made Timbiebs a hit and we know guests are going to love Biebs Brew and his take on Tims Cold Brew.” * No substitutions. Valid on bundle only, if items are added à la carte, promotional price will not apply. Ends 7/5/22.

AppYea expands its SleepX patent commercialization portfolio with a non-diluting agreement.

Appyea

AppYea (OTC: APYP) announced that its subsidiary SleepX, which focuses on the development of accurate wearable monitoring solutions to treat sleep apnea and snoring – has signed new commercialization agreement for two additional patents by Ben-Gurion University. The new patented technology enables the innovative detection of sleep apnea and hypopnea through speech analysis using only a smartphone and with no physical contact. This is compared to traditional technologies that use physical sensors to detect apnea in overnight sleep labs. "In recent years we see a growing number of major players taking development efforts in the field of sleep monitoring and sleep apnea”, said Boris (Bary) Molchadsky, chairman & CEO of AppYea. “We are developing our own products that cater to this market while increasing our patent portfolio and examining synergistic technologies as part of our strategy to become a leading player in the sleep health market while also offering licensing agreements for leading smartphone manufacturers.” SleepX is a research and development company recently acquired by AppYea. The company had developed a unique product for monitoring and treating sleep apnea and snoring. The technology is protected by several international patents and the company plans to start serial production in 2022. SleepX focuses its activities on the development and commercialization of its flagship product SleepX PRO solution which is designed to diagnose sleep apnea using only a smartphone and with no physical contact. The company recently announced that it has applied to the Helsinki Committee for approval to begin its planned clinical trial on the SleepX PRO application. This trial is intended to take place at a hospital sleep lab as the first step toward applying for an FDA approval under the first-of-its-kind medical device category for “contactless detection of sleep apnea to be performed through the Artificial Intelligence (AI) analysis of breathing during sleep”. As far as SleepX is aware, the global sleep apnea devices market size is valued at USD 3.7 billion as of 2020 with a 6.2% CAGR, reaching USD 6.1 billion by 2028, according to Grand View Research’s report.

DHL and Mykke Hofmann Launch Sustainable Fashion Capsule: Forever Pieces

DHL

Six (6) winning designs from an international competition with 2,375 entries from 80 countries available as a limited collection as of May 16, 2022. Clothing designed to be timeless, with an NFT warrantee certificate on a the blockchain to extend the garment’s wearability and lifespan. Arjan Sissing, Global Head of Brand Marketing at DHL: “Our vision of positive fashion unites sustainable logistics, circularity and fair production conditions with long-lasting quality”. All profits from the sale of the Forever Pieces collection will be donated to SOS Children’s Villages. DHL and Mykke Hofmann (the socioecological fashion label based in Munich) are jointly launching a fashion capsule entitled Forever Pieces, where the design boasts a span of a lifetime. The unique collection will be available from May 16, 2022, on www.MykkeHofmann.com. The Forever Pieces collection was created from a design competition announced last fall on social media by DHL and Mykke Hofmann. A total of 848 fashion enthusiasts from 80 countries entered, and 2,375 designs were submitted. Of the submissions, six designs were selected to create the collection which includes a trench coat, a blouse, a pair of trousers, a dress, and a top and bottom as a co-ord set. Forever Pieces represents everything we associate with our vision of positive fashion,” explains Arjan Sissing, Global Head of Brand Marketing at DHL. “This competition stands for sustainability and thus unites themes such as sustainable production, circularity and fair production conditions with long-lasting fashion.” Participating in the competition were many up-and-coming designers and fashion enthusiasts who welcomed the opportunity to bring their sustainable fashion ideas to life. “The feedback from the competition exceeded all our expectations in terms of both quantity and quality,” explains Jelena Hofmann, founder and CEO of Mykke Hofmann. “The response shows how deeply the concept of sustainability is anchored in the up-and-coming fashion community.” The main prize awarded to competition winners was 1000EUR in prize money, and the opportunity to bring to life the garment as a Forever Piece. “It is important to design fashion in an environmentally friendly way, and this competition offered me a way to do that,” says winner Marta Soloducha, explaining why she decided to take part. The fashion student from Warsaw designed a trench coat whose versatility makes it a Forever Piece. The garment can be worn not only as a coat, but also as a blazer or skirt separately when detached. Micaela Clubourg, an up-and-coming designer from Argentina, now living in Spain, submitted a co-ord set like no other to the Forever Pieces collection. The pair of trousers features a non-waste design, with no fabric wasted in production, while the top represents an eternal design. The other winners are Gaia Stollo from Italy who contributed a classic pair of trouser, Yolanda Patricia Cabarcas, a native of Colombia now working as a freelancer in Milan, who submitted a timeless blouse, and Camilla Pane from Italy who designed a transitional little black dress. Like the rest of Mykke Hofmann’s collection, the entire Forever Pieces collection is produced at a factory in Serbia in which women are given a stable job with fair conditions. All workers are paid 50 per cent above regulated wages and are provided with professional equipment – with health and safety as top priorities. The Forever Pieces are designed to be timeless pieces that go beyond trends and accompany their wearers for a long time. When customers purchase the product, they receive a warranty certificate in the form of a climate neutral NFT to extend the wearability of the clothing through certain repairs. The NFT is stored in a digital wallet on the blockchain, which means the warranty certificate cannot get lost or be inadvertently. All proceeds from the sale of the collection will go to SOS Children’s Villages, the world’s largest non-profit organization focused on supporting children without parental care and families at risk. DHL is part of Deutsche Post DHL Group, who has been a partner to SOS Children Village since 2010. DHL is the fashion and retail industry’s leading global logistics partner.
