Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Brand Is A Powerful Force In The Activewear Market

A handful of young, successful singers and actors have ventured into the activewear sector of the clothing industry over the last few years. All of those stars have a recognizable look and name. Kate Hudson is one of those young stars. Hudson has made her presence known in the clothing industry by teaming up with JustFab, the billion-dollar player in the rag market. Hudson and JustFab combined forces and introduced Fabletics to the world in 2013. Fabletics offers trendy activewear to women and men that want quality at a decent price. The Fabletics model is simple. The company uses a subscription-based model to sell its brand to customers that want comfort, quality and the right look for them. Hudson’s exclusive designs and the attention to detail has made a huge impact in the marketplace. In three short years, Fabletics has been able to build the company into a $250 million powerhouse.

Most of the revenue has come from online sales over the last 36 months, but the recent addition of brick and mortar stores is changing the dynamics of the company. Fabletics wants to open 75 to 100 stores in malls across the country over the next three to five years. The company has 16 stores in Hawaii, Florida, California and Illinois now, and sales have been better than expected. The General Manager of Fabletics, Gregg Throgmartin, believes his company is building a modern version of high brand value. The membership model is giving customers personalized service, value, and up-to-date fashion at very competitive prices.

It may sound strange to some people, but building physical stores is a trend for big online retailers. Amazon is jumping into the brick and mortar business, and so are other recognizable online companies. But Fabletics has something Amazon and the other online retailers don’t have. Fabletics promotes reverse showrooming, according to a recent Forbes article. Browsing is a positive in Fabletics stores. Three to five people that walk into a Fabletics store are already members. And another 25 percent of the people that walk into a store become members. Customers that try on a particular outfit in the store, will find it in their online shopping cart when they get home. That means the customer has the option to buy the outfit in store or online at a later date.

There are other innovative things that make Fabletics stores a win for the company. Using online data to identify customer preferences in particular areas is a brilliant move. The company only stocks merchandise that appeals to that local market. Stock choices are based on local customer input from the database and from retail sales. The other thing Fabletics has going for its retail ventures is accessibility. The location choices and the smart distribution system, as well as fast purchase options, are the things that gain customer appreciation and more sales.

The executives at Fabletics know there are challenges in brick and mortar stores, but they believe their business model will eliminate many of the issues that have plagued typical retailers over the years. Plus, Fabletics has Kate Hudson. And she is a powerful marketing force.

Jason Hope Sees Sharp Changes In Future

Futurist Jason Hope has a strong fixation on the Internet of Things. After successfully predicting that IoT was here to stay in 2015, people are starting to take note of what he has to say about IoT. Currently, IoT largely takes place in the form of data collection and sharing in common household devices such as televisions. According to Jason Hope, this is only a hint of the true potential of where the Internet of Things will take us.

The Future Of Driving

IoT, according to Jason Hope, is going to change the way we drive. Thanks to a combination of self driving cars, mobile devices, and other technologies combining together we will see IoT take care of driving for us. Our cars will collect data to understand how to navigate traffic and take us to our destinations, but that data may come from a number of places. Our phones may provide our cars with our preferred locations and how to reach those preferred locations. Creating the synergy between devices will take center stage in the software industry as more developers search for ways to expand the use of IoT

The Tech Industry Changes

As IoT matures, the tech industry will change the direction of development. Right now, the most important thing in software development is the creation of new apps and sending them to market.

However, in the future software developers may find themselves seeking out ways to connect existing apps to take advantage of IoT software. For instance, a driving service may use your phone to connect to your car, and from that point on the app will deliver instructions to the car to tell the car exactly where your final destination is.

Finally A Cure For Aging

Beyond the Internet of Things, Hope is a major investor in anti-aging technology. He believes the Strategies for Engineering Negligible Senescence Institute will find the key breakthroughs needed to defeat aging.

From his perspective, aging is simply another disease and all we need to do is find a cure for it. The SENS Research Foundation goals are often met with skepticism, but actual progress in the fight against aging takes place there. SENS researchers have found ways to lengthen telomeres, discovered key factors in aging, and are on their way to developing anti-aging procedures. For Jason Hope, those treatments can’t come soon enough.

Securus Technologies corrects inaccuracies by GTL technologies

Securus Technologies focuses its services on provision of technology services to criminal justice and correction facilities. The company has availed its services for public correction facilities, public safety, and other industries. In recent news, the company received a rating of A+ by BBB. Such rating is an indication of the excellence in service provided by the enterprise. Global Tel Link, a competitor of Securus Technologies, has strived to tarnish Securus’ name by publishing false information. However, Securus has defended itself showing that such information is inaccurate and misplaced.

 

GTL went forth to publish information regarding Securus Patents, stating that most of their patents and licenses were out of date. However, Securus has been in operation for long compared to GTL. Securus has more patents than GTL’s. Securus went forth to insist that GTL should focus on having more licenses and patents instead of trying to ruin Securus. Securus CEO went on to insist that he will continue to defend the company regarding misinformation presented by GTL.

 

Securus CEO, Richard Smith, went on to point several malpractices conducted by GTL. He then noted that he loves the correction industry. It helps building a better community by connecting inmates with their family and friends. He was deeply offended by GTL’s misconduct in releasing wrong information and their recent activity where they acted below the integrity bar. To Securus, their business and mission is more than just to make money. The company has all of its customer’s interests at heart and focuses on providing the best services.

 

Concerning patents that GTL claimed they were seeking damages and injunctions, Securus went on to insist that the PTAB board has no right to give a ruling on such patents. Thes court is the only body that can make the final ruling on such patents. GTL has however spent a lot of money and time going to court just to disapprove Securus’ patents.

Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority Appoints Any Wirth as the New Chairman of the Board

Andy Wirth serves as the President and CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings located in Lake Tahoe. He is an avid skydiver, cyclist, and runner. He takes part in various environmental activities in Lake Tahoe area with the aim of making the environment sustainable for people across all ages. Andy was involved in a skydiving accident that almost claimed his right arm in October 2013. Luckily, the friends who had accompanied him in the activity sought medical attention in time and got his arm reattached.

During his recovery period, Andy Wirth made friends with a group of Navy SEALS training at Squaw Valley. One of the Navy Seals joined him as a swimmer in the IRONMAN 70.3 race, an old friend also took part as a cyclist, and Wirth was the runner. After the completion of the race, the three formed Special Welfare Warrior Support Team. The support group supports the Navy Seal Foundation through raising funds for the comrades who lost their lives or limbs in the battlefield.

The Alpine Meadows and the Squaw Valley are the subsidiaries of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings. KSL Capital Partners acquired Squaw Valley in 2010, and they purchased Alpine Meadows in the following year. KSL appointed Andy Wirth as the company’s CEO following his experience in the same position at Steamboat Springs, Colorado. In 2015, the Squaw Valley announced its plans to build a base-to-base gondola that will connect the two resorts. The gondola will run in three parts from the base of Squaw Valley, up and over the ridged between the two mountains and end at the bottom of the Alpine Meadows. Wirth claimed that the resort has contributed to lower environmental degradation in the Tahoe region by 15%.
