  • Vulnerability Guru Brené Brown Is About to Become the Marie Kondo…

    first_imgBooksCelebrityTVVulnerability Guru Brené Brown Is About to Become the Marie Kondo of EmotionsThe TED Talk sensation goes international with a new Netflix specialBy Merle Ginsberg – April 19, 20193291ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItFor those who haven’t heard of Brené Brown, the five-time New York Times bestselling author/speaker/storyteller/professor at the Graduate School of Social Work at the University of Houston refers to herself as a “shame and vulnerability researcher.”“When I say that to someone sitting next to me on a plane, it stops the conversation,” she says. But here’s another way to think of her: She’s the Marie Kondo of emotions—crossed with Oprah, crossed with a standup comedian with a doctorate. In other words, wise and wildly funny.It all started with a TED Talk, 2010’s “The Power of Vulnerability,” which to date has been viewed more than 39 million times on the TED website (and countless more times on YouTube). Since then, she’s release five New York Times best-selling books, including 2018’s Dare to Lead, the culmination of years of research into the future of leadership.She’s about to be more than a TED Talk and self-help aisle sensation. On April 19, Netflix is releasing Brown’s first hour-long special, which one exec referred to as “a different kind of stand up.” In Brené Brown: The Call to Courage, Brown describes courage as “not bulldozing or being tough the way we think of it today—but leading with the heart, telling your story with all your heart.” The streaming service introduced us to the idea of Kondo-ing our lives by eliminating physical clutter—maybe undergoing an emotional overhaul will henceforth be known as Brown-ing.Earlier this week at Netflix HQ, Brown appeared for a talk with ultra-fan Laverne Cox, who could recite all of Brown’s books back to her. Two two women discussed the quest for courage, self-acceptance—and the power of vulnerability, which according to Brown, “is the only way to get to creativity.”We were able to snag some time with Brown at the panel; here’s what she had to say about becoming a TV star, how she got here, and her very regular life at home in Houston.You don’t grow up wanting to be a shame researcher—do you?Growing up in Texas I really wanted to be a cruise director—or a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. That’s how I was raised! Then I watched a PBS special on Eleanor Roosevelt. Then I said, “That’s what I want to be when I grow up.” I wanted to be like Eleanor Roosevelt.Why study shame and vulnerability?One of the thing’s about shame and trauma—one of the greatest casualties—it makes you vulnerable. It’s coded at a cellular level. But you’ll die under that armor. You need to take it off to grow into your gift. But we do live in a world where we have to keep it on right now—a day, an hour. Take it off, hang it up. You can self protect, but you can also take it off. Or you will never reach your gift. Everyone needs love and belonging. You can’t get it without opening up.“You can self protect, but you can also take [your armor] off.”How did Netflix approach you?We invited them to come to a talk about three years ago. I wasn’t sure about it; they said they didn’t have a category. So last year I told them, “I’m having a talk in L.A., why don’t you come?” And this is the result. They filmed it.You saw what happened to author Marie Kondo when she got a Netflix show. How do you deal with that? You’ve said you’re an introvert.I’m not sure yet. I don’t know. One day at a time right? I’m excited about my work going international. I’m going to Romania next week. This project is an opportunity to take the work broader. I only teach a class a year now. It’s shifted in the last five years. I want to be out there, talking to people. I think you have to live the work.Are you a big star at home in Houston?No. They just ask me if I’m bringing something to the bake sale. I just live my life, I try to live the work. On Friday night this week, I’m going to Seder with my friends. We’ll be singing these great songs, it’s a community.You’re going to get up in the morning on Saturday and there will be reviews. Does that scare you?It’s not the critic who count, right? I can’t care about the feedback of people who don’t put themselves out there, you know? The people opening up, doing the creative work, risking everything—I hope to hear from them.RELATED: What Happens After Marie Kondo Leaves?Stay on top of the latest in L.A. food and culture. Sign up for our newsletters today.

  • Aberdeen Asset Management profits edge up after Scottish Widows acquisition

    first_imgAberdeen Asset Management (AAM) posted slightly higher profits as it said it had weathered a “volatile” year.Figures for the year to the end of September showed underlying profit before tax of £490.3m, up from £482.7m last year. Statutory profit before tax fell from £390.3m last year to £354.6m, partly because of the purchase of investment group Scottish Widows (SWIP) from Lloyds in March. The group said results had been affected by uncertainty in financial markets, adding that it expected conditions to remain uncertain given prospective changes in interest rates and the broader economic environment.The “volatile” year included clients pulling £8.8bn in funds earlier in the year, causing AAM’s share price to drop over five per cent.Nevertheless, AAM, which now has £324.4bn of group funds under management and advice, said it will recommend a dividend of 11.2p a share, making a total payment for the year of 18p per share. The figure is 12.5 per cent higher than last year.Martin Gilbert, AAM’s chief executive, said the company’s performance had been robust:We have delivered robust performance this year in a more challenging environment, underpinned by our long-term track record and also our transformational acquisition of SWIP, which has diversified the group. The first half of the year was particularly demanding, as investor sentiment turned sharply against emerging market economies. Recently, however, we have seen those concerns abate and outflows from our Asian and emerging market funds have moderated.Gilbert also said that the group’s acquisition and integrations of Scottish Widows was on schedule:Markets are likely to remain volatile given the uncertain economic and interest rate environment but our new financial year has started well with our broadened product range attracting interest from a range of clients. We will continue to apply our philosophy of long-term fundamental investing to meet the objectives of our clients.

  • Southeast Asia Aviation Market Well Positioned for Recovery

    first_imgSoutheast Asia Aviation Market Well Positioned for Recovery Boeing [NYSE: BA] anticipates airlines in Southeast Asia will need 4,400 new airplanes valued at $700 billion to support expanding demand for air travel over the next 20 years. The intra-Southeast Asian market will become the fifth largest in the world by 2039, and the vast domestic and regional air-travel network across the region positions it well for a post-pandemic recovery, according to Boeing’s 2020 Commercial Market Outlook (CMO).With low-cost carriers providing affordable service and added capacity, the CMO projects passenger traffic growth in Southeast Asia to grow by 5.7% annually throughout the forecast period. Through the period, Southeast Asia will become the second largest aviation market in the Asia-Pacific region after China.Boeing projects the region’s commercial airplane fleet will grow 5.3% annually over the next 20 years. In addition, demand for aftermarket commercial services – valued at $790 billion – will help maintain the fleet over the same period.“Southeast Asia’s fundamental growth drivers remain robust. With an expanding middle-class and growth in private consumption, the region’s economy has grown by nearly 70% over the last decade, which increases propensity to travel,” said Darren Hulst, Boeing vice president of Commercial Marketing. “In addition, governments in the region continue to recognize the travel and tourism sectors as important drivers of economic growth.”While near-term airplane deliveries are impacted as a result of the pandemic’s effects, Boeing estimates operators will need more than 3,500 new single-aisle airplanes in the region by 2039. Single-aisle airplanes like the 737 family will continue to drive capacity growth in Southeast Asia, where low-cost-carriers have the highest market penetration globally.Twin-aisle airplanes such as the 777X and 787 Dreamliner will remain foundational to Southeast Asia’s air travel industry. Over the next 20 years, nearly one in four twin-aisle airplanes delivered to the broader Asia-Pacific region will go to a carrier operating in Southeast Asia.Overall, Boeing forecasts regional demand for 760 new widebodies by 2039, enabling efficient replacement and versatile network growth for Southeast Asia’s airlines. While long-haul market recovery is expected to take longer, Southeast Asia’s twin-aisle fleet is slated to grow by 55% – to 780 widebodies – by 2039.The region’s commercial aviation services growth remains promising in the long term. Southeast Asia commercial services are valued at $790 billion over the next 20 years, a slight increase from last year’s projection, driven largely by growth in freighter conversions and digital solutions and analytics. The region is expected to require 183,000 more commercial pilots, cabin crew members and aviation technicians over the forecast period.Globally, Boeing projects the need for 43,110 new commercial airplanes and the demand for aftermarket services to be equivalent to $9 trillion over the next two decades. World air cargo traffic is projected to grow 4% annually due to solid industrial production and world trade. Freighters will remain the backbone of the cargo industry with the need for 930 new and 1,500 converted freighters during the same span.The complete forecast is available at https://www.boeing.com/commercial/market/commercial-market-outlook/.Boeing is the world’s largest aerospace company and leading provider of commercial airplanes, defense, space and security systems, and global services. As a top U.S. exporter, the company supports commercial and government customers in more than 150 countries and leverages the talents of a global supplier base. Building on a legacy of aerospace leadership, Boeing continues to lead in technology and innovation, deliver for its customers and invest in its people and future growth. /Public Release.
