Velocity Publishing Interview about Randy Rhoads on Gibson.com

Posted by Levine Communications Office on October 25, 2012

 

(Article Preview)

What kickstarted the idea to write a book about Rhoads?

“I was working on a different project with Peter M. Margolis, who was a good friend of Randy’s. Randy was Peter’s guitar teacher. We decided to do this together through that association. I was very familiar with Randy’s story. I’ve been obsessed with him since I was 12, so I knew I could write a book, although I didn’t know if it would be any good. When we finished, we were pleased but we knew it could be much better. That’s when I was introduced to Steven Rosen, who’s a brilliant writer, someone who’s seasoned and experienced. He helped me express myself, and he brought the book up to a much higher level. It became what it is, thanks to him.”

Check Out 10 Inspiring Steve Jobs Quotes:

Posted by Levine Communications Office on October 25, 2012

Steve Jobs not only changed the way we interact with technology, but also inspired a loyalty that went beyond mere branding—he created a lifestyle for Apple customers. And, as NPR points out, helped shape popular culture.

Along the way, Jobs also provided inspiration on a variety of other topics. Many of these quotes come from The Wall Street Journal, which compiled them in August when Jobs resigned as CEO of Apple.

Conformity is boring. 

“It’s more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy.”

[from Odyssey: Pepsi to Apple, 1987, via The Wall Street Journal]

Sweat the small stuff. 

“This is what customers pay us for—to sweat all these details so it’s easy and pleasant for them to use our computers. We’re supposed to be really good at this. That doesn’t mean we don’t listen to customers, but it’s hard for them to tell you what they want when they’ve never seen anything remotely like it.”

[via Fortune, January 2000]

Sometimes, focus groups aren’t the answer. 

“For something this complicated, it’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.”

[via Businessweek, May 1998]

What it means to be a creative person. 

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.

[via Wired, February 1996]

Can you say this about your workplace? 

“We’re just enthusiastic about what we do.”

[via Playboy, February 1985]

The importance of strong managers and coaches. 

“What’s reinvigorating this company is two things: One, there’s a lot of really talented people in this company who listened to the world tell them they were losers for a couple of years, and some of them were on the verge of starting to believe it themselves. But they’re not losers. What they didn’t have was a good set of coaches, a good plan. A good senior management team. But they have that now.”

[via Businessweek, May 1998]

Take note, small business owners.

“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It’s not about money. It’s about the people you have, how you’re led, and how much you get it.”

[via Fortune, November 1998]

Traditional media remains vital. 

“I don’t want to see us descend into a nation of bloggers. I think we need editorial oversight now more than ever. Anything we can do to help newspapers find new ways of expression that will help them get paid, I am all for.”

[D8 conference, via All Things Digital, June 2010]

Don’t. Settle. 

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

[Stanford commencement speech, June 2005]

Words to live by. 

“Stay hungry, stay foolish.”

Look to Steve Jobs to give you inspiration to make you fearless in your career. You need to live off inspiration.

The Farrah Fawcett Foundation Gives Women With Cancer A Day Of Beauty

Posted by Levine Communications Office on October 18, 2012

www.latfusa.com

What a difference a day of beauty can make. The Farrah Fawcett Foundation (FFF) recently collaborated with The Glamour Project in conjunction with Jose Eber and Jaclyn Smith to create “A Day of Beauty” at the City of Hope hospital.

Thanks to donations from Senna Cosmetics and Armani Beauty, who contributed the make-up for this event, women of all ages felt and looked beautiful. Jaclyn Smith provided wigs personally styled and cut by Jose Eber’s team. Together, they created a tear-filled and moving day. These amazing women allowed themselves to be transformed from the outside-in to bring out their inner beauty. Smiles and some tears were had by all. Patients ranged in age from a 9 year old girl suffering from leukemia to an 82 year old woman. All make-over patients were gifted their wigs and make-up to help celebrate their ‘feelings’ better.

Dr. Tony Nakhla discusses hair loss in women in HerCampus Magazine

Hair Loss In College Women: What Causes It & How To Stop It

According to Dr. Tony Nakhla, dermatologist and author of The Skin Commandments: 10 Rules to Healthy, Beautiful Skin, “Hair loss, or alopecia, can be divided into two types, scarring and non-scarring. Scarring alopecia is permanent where as non-scarring may be reversible.” Luckily, scarring alopecia is rare, diagnosed in less than 3% of people experiencing hair loss. And don’t worry: none of the causes of hair loss previously covered in this article—with the exception of chronic lupus—lead to permanent loss, so regrowth is possible with time, medication, or the lifestyle changes described above
