In an NFL season FILLED with negativity and controversy this is one of the nicest, most sincere, positive moments I’ve seen on T.V. in a long while. This video reminds us of what the NFL is supposed to be about. It’s also just nice to see an actual honest positive moment on television that isn’t “set up” or planned or reeking of artifice. I’ve always been a Deion fan. You couldn’t be from Ft. Myers Florida and not be a Deion Sanders fan. He was a legend there before he ever strapped on a Seminoles helmet. But I’ve never been a Hester fan before, mostly because he ran back a large chunk of his 20 return TD’s on my beloved Minnesota Vikings… but after this video (and now that he’s out of the NFC North) I’ll be quietly rooting for him each time he takes another one back to the house…  except when he does it against the Vikings of course.

"Here is how the internship scam works. It’s not about a “skills” gap. It’s about a morality gap.

1) Make higher education worthless by redefining “skill” as a specific corporate contribution. Tell young people they have no skills.

2) With “skill” irrelevant, require experience. Make internship sole path to experience. Make internships unpaid, locking out all but rich.

3) End on the job training for entry level jobs. Educated told skills are irrelevant. Uneducated told they have no way to obtain skills.

4) As wealthy progress on professional career path, middle and lower class youth take service jobs to pay off massive educational debt.

5) Make these part-time jobs not “count” on resume. Hire on prestige, not skill or education. Punish those who need to work to survive.

6) Punish young people who never found any kind of work the hardest. Make them untouchables — unhireable.

7) Tell wealthy people they are “privileged” to be working 40 hrs/week for free. Don’t tell them what kind of “privileged” it is.

8) Make status quo commentary written by unpaid interns or people hiring unpaid interns. They will tell you it’s your fault.

9) Young people, it is not your fault. Speak out. Fight back. Bankrupt the prestige economy."

I pretty much hit reblog on this after point 1 alone.

While I personally think this list tries to make the unpaid internship issue “black and white” when, like most things, is more grey. I can get on board with the overall point and opinion that internships are a big problem. As it stands, it’s become an incredibly flawed system that needs heavy regulations and protections for students. I believe the internship program as a system had some benefits and potential good in the beginning stages. However, like most things that go unregulated in the corporate world, the system has been distorted, mutated, and corrupted in an effort to “rig the game” for corporations and their benefactors at the expense of everyone else. Internships now, in general, have grown out of control and are hurting the “many” WAY more than they’re helping the “few”.

Erik Jones, “Motion.”

Opening this Saturday, July 5th at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco, California is artist Erik Jones (Interviewed) very anticipated solo show, “Motion.”  Featuring a multitude of brand new portraits in Jones’s signature, colorful style.  Jones looks at his works as conceptual fashion design where the color becomes the clothing.  As Erik put it when I interviewed him, “The viewer is capturing a random moment where the forms are consuming the figure. Not in an aggressive or obtrusive way but more like wearing clothes that are alive. Clothes that revere you, they breathe with you.”

Erik’s work is expected to sell quickly - if you’re interested in purchasing a piece please contact Megan at hashimotocontemporary@gmail.com.
