Faith & Co. | Christian Work (Steve Bell)


(gentle music) – We were raised in
this dualistic theology that the highest and best
calling for any believer was to go into full-time
Christian service. If you really wanted to serve God, you became a missionary
or a pastor or a teacher, did something in full-time
Christian service. And I never felt called to that, and my parents were
actually quite disappointed because they thought of all of my siblings that I would be the preacher. But I felt called into business. I love the idea of being in business. (gentle music)

Open Office with Patty Darling


Our faculty here, the Jazz faculty is
amazing. It’s an honor to be working with them and and getting a chance to share
these new ideas and find ways that we can inspire and help our students really
find their unique path here musically Hi, my name is Patty Darling and I am an
instructor of music here in the Jazz department at Lawrence. Not only do we do composition and piano here but this is also the home of the Fred Sturm of jazz
library. It is an absolute treasure of big band music, small group music that we use for performing and sight reading and score study. This rocket Sturminator
has been here as long as I can remember I think that’s a bottle of coke in the
top. So this right here was the concert we just did this fall which was so cool.
It’s it was a huge collaboration with the Jazz Ensemble and studio Orchestra
and then we brought in faculty from the jazz department and we put together a
110 piece Orchestra jazz orchestra and we fit them on stage
and it was absolutely amazing. Feel free to stop by anytime. See you later!

Faith & Co. | Work Forms Us (Dan Kaskubar)


(uplifting music) – We are in the business of helping people discover
their God-given gifts and potential through the dignity of work. We really feel like work is formational. Work is something that helps people understand more about themselves and more about the
world that they live in. Work is also a way for
everybody to contribute to the greater good and to the needs of their community. You can see, in people’s eyes, when they come and they meet with us, and they’re discouraged about, either the type of work
that they’re doing, or the fact that they’re
only doing part-time work and they want full-time work. Or the fact that they feel trapped. We have heard people say that they are treated like
commodities in their jobs. That their supervisors tell them that they’re not important
and that they’re replaceable. We hear people, basically with a whole bunch of stories about what its meant for them to work, where it’s clear, there’s
a big hole in their lives, and really, in their hearts about what work can be for them. And instead of it being
a dignifying experience, it’s exactly the opposite. It’s like, if you have someone who’s not living into their potential, that’s a tremendous opportunity, not just for them but for all of society, to receive more from that person. Productivity is a function of technology, labor, and capital, right? And we talk all the time, in society, about technology and about capital. I think there’s a tremendous opportunity to talk more about labor and not just in a way of, of like formal education, but really in terms of potential and what can really happen when people who have more to offer are seen by their employers. That they can offer more. And that’s the kind of
aspirational approach that we wanna take to
our work at Activate. (uplifting music)

Pay For College | We Are Arizona


(upbeat music) Growing up, I was pretty inquisitive about how a lot of things worked, which is probably why that led me to do architecture. I’m just gonna take some model photos of this model I built for my capstone. That’s going to be right around there. When I was really into art and drawing and just creating things, so
it just worked out pretty well. I’m on my way to class or to work and then I’ll be hitting
a class right after, so it’s going to be
one of those busy days. Being in the financial aid office, I was also offered federal work study, which is how I was able to make money to actually pay for my
expenses while I was in school. I’m just starting my shift, ready to just help out
the next person in line. Hi, how can I help you? I have some questions
about my financial aid. I get a lot of incoming
freshmen who are like, “Oh my God how are we
going to pay for school?” Because, they come in either
with just student loans or maybe their parents
aren’t able to help them out, but they really want to come here. Even if you came to the U
of A without a scholarship from an out of state student prospective, if you put in the hard work, your college and your own dedication can actually create those
scholarship opportunities for you. Sophomore year, my college, actually, gave me a scholarship just
based off of how I was doing in my classes. That was a pleasant surprise because I wasn’t expecting that at all. I always encourage people
to use Scholarship Universe, which a place where a lot of students can apply for multiple scholarships based off of what they’re
most likely to get. Just thousands of scholarships, and a lot of it is, students
just need to apply for it and chances are you’ll get it if you put in the time and effort
to actually apply for it and invest in your education. For me I’ve had to do both, I’m taking out loans and I
also have my scholarships, but on the weekends and
even during school week I’m going to work and
putting in that effort to make sure that I can live comfortably while I’m going to school. I just got off work, and
now I’m heading to class. The work-life balance is pretty tough. Once you actually start
working and have school going, you can have a better understanding of what you’re actually
able to do realistically. Gonna be here, for the rest
of the day in the studio. Gets pretty hard, but
they’re also understanding that you’re a student first,
so it does make a difference. (upbeat music)

Conversations with the Chancellor: Innovation at Work


[Silence] Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano:
We’re pleased to have John Hayes, the CEO of Ball
corporation with us today at our new aerospace building. Ball
corporation is the world’s largest supplier of recyclable
beverage cans and it’s the parent company of Ball Aerospace
and aerospace industry leader. CU and Ball have a long history
of partnership and today we’re talking with John Hayes about
innovation. John, thanks for being here. It’s great to be
with you Phil. What goes into creating an innovative
organization by Ball? John Hayes, CEO Ball Corp.: Ball
has as such, a long and rich history, it’s 140 years old.
We’ve been in more than 45 different businesses over that
time and I’d say if there’s one thing that differentiates Ball,
we hope and dream and desire that every single person at Ball
feels like they’re part of the ownership of the company and
that’s what really creates the power. Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano:
That’s terrific. And what are, what are some key areas for
innovation? John Hayes, CEO Ball Corp.: If
you’re a company that’s been in 45 plus different businesses,
you’re always being innovative and even though we’re a big
company, we have two or three startups as we speak right now.
As you know with the University of Colorado, we’re launching a
brand new, infinitely recyclable aluminum cups business, right,
ah starting at the football stadiums and we’ll be spreading
in this. We can make production from that and so you know what
creates that, that innovation if you will, giving people
autonomy, authority and giving them the aspiration to actually
be different, be something important because we want to be
around for another hundred and 40 years and that’s how you do
it. Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano:
So what leadership qualities ah should or an organization look
for when hiring? John Hayes, CEO Ball Corp.: I
would say a couple things. Number one, find people who are
curious that have a passion for learning and intellectual
learning because those are the people they’re always going to
try a little bit harder and look a little deeper and really look
and see what’s different. You have to find people you share a
common set of values with that is infinitely important in
today’s world. Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano:
Well that whole issue of curiosity, I talked to the
faculty about that because that’s what makes our faculty
great is their curiosity. John Hayes, CEO Ball Corp.: The
curiosity on college campus is far greater than you find it
everyday walk of life and it just gives you a rhythm. It
gives you an energy, it gives you a motivation. It’s a lot of
fun. And it’s created by the faculty. Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano:
Exactly. Uh, what advice do you have for our graduates? John Hayes, CEO Ball Corp.: So
this is very cliche, but I truly believe it. Find what you do and
find the people you want to do it with. I worked for a company
that we make everything from satellites to beverage cans. If
you thought that I was 18 years old, a freshman in college,
thinking that’s when I didn’t want to do, when I grow up. Of
course it was. And I had no idea. I’m 53 years old. I still
have no idea what I want to do when I grow up. Trialing
different things, not being afraid to make a mistake, not
being afraid of failure when you do have a failure, learn from
it. Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano:
That’s terrific. So CU and Ball where we’ve talked about, we’ve
been partners for such a long time. What value does Ball bring
or Ball get, I should say from partnering with us, John Hayes, CEO Ball Corp.: You
know, we hire over 50 people out of the University of Colorado
each year. Many of them want to stay here. We’re headquartered
here. I really do think the longevity and the sustainability
of our relationship has as much to do with we’re, we’re very
symbiotic and share similar values as I talked about
earlier. And at the same time we push each other. I think about
this, the things we’re doing in sustainability and diversity and
inclusion in STEM education, all of those things are from a
for-profit enterprise perspective and investment and
investment in the community. Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano:
Exactly. And you know, for us, um, I think that our students
really benefit from the work that they do with Ball – uh – as
interns. They get that real world experience that they’re
not going to be able to get in the classroom. And you mentioned
diversity and inclusion, and Ball has been a terrific partner
with us and making sure that underrepresented students had an
opportunity not only to go to school here, but to work and
intern with the corporation like Ball. John Hayes, CEO Ball Corp.: When
the community has a vitality and is thriving, we all win. And
that’s critical. So John, I want to thank you for
your leadership, for your insights, and for being such an
important partner to CU Boulder. Yeah, thank you very much. I
appreciate it. And thank you all for watching and go Buffs.

NCAA Makes Big Bucks By Denying College Athletes A Salary


University of Wisconsin is trying to argue
that paying student athletes is gonna destroy their athletic program. I am so tired of the NCAA. The NCAA has been able to push themselves
around for so long. They start off with this discussion, well,
we don’t really wanna pay. Listen, these kids are going to college. A lot of them can barely make ends meet. They’re practicing every day, they’re bringing
in millions, hundreds of millions of dollars to the university. Look at the University of Alabama. My God, they’re making more money than third
world countries. The players on the field are making the money
for them. Now, here’s the problem. Most of those kids playing are never gonna
make it into the big money. Right, you have maybe four or five from that
Alabama team. Exactly. One or two from every other school. Exactly. So, they’re never gonna make it into the pros. They’re out there fighting through injuries. A lot of them are actually having to get welfare
checks just to live. They’re having to get loans to live. But, the NCAA created this, well, we really
care about these scholar athlete. It was nonsense. There’s some great documentaries that have
been done on how corrupt the NCAA is. This is always at the top of the story, isn’t
it? It is. The argument that the University of Wisconsin’s
chancellor is trying to make here is that, well, we just can’t compete with the big money
that other schools could offer so we need to scrap this idea entirely. The way you fix that is that the money should
be coming, if you pay student athletes, from the NCAA and it should be standard. A quarterback at Alabama is gonna make the
same as a quarterback at UNC. Exactly. Make it standard across the board. Don’t give anybody a financial advantage to
get better players. I solved your problem right there, University
of Wisconsin. Solved. We’re not talking about making these athletes
rich. Right. They’re talking about paying them a stipend
that is in addition to the scholarship that they might have. I know we’re gonna get the this is gonna corrupt
athleticism in the university. That is absolutely nonsense, because the answer
is, as you say, there’s a norm. You’re not paid more in Alabama than you are
at Topeka University. It all works the same way. But, the NCAA has used this argument for decades
now, and they’ll always have some front guy. Who’s the front guy here? University of Wisconsin chancellor. This is the guy of the day that they’re gonna
use to pitch this idea that oh, gee whiz. It’ll bankrupt our school. You’re making millions every season for ever
sport, and you can’t give these kids out there who, in the case of many of them, they’re
risking their future out there, with concussions, CTE permanent leg, knee, arm injuries. And, they get nothing out of it? Brain damage. We’re talking about brain damage that affects
them in later years. NCAA has got to be brought under control. This is the best way to do it, to take some
of that power away from it. People watching this, we can’t cover all the
details of this story, but it’s an important story because it starts developing every few
years. Now, it’s back out there. We know exactly what they’re gonna do because
they do it every three years. Here it is. Gee whiz, we have to really preserve the idea
of amateurism. The term amateurs. That’s the first argument. The second argument, the argument that you
talked about, is it’s not fair. This university A can’t afford to pay what
this university B pays. So what? NCAA is the person that’s the equalizer. They’re the people that are the equalizer. The problem is that if we start handing out
money like that, you’re gonna have athletes in one sport that aren’t gonna be paid the
same as an athlete in another sport. Well, that’s reality. That’s how life works. Yeah, and that might be unfortunate for athletes
there, but if you get something, isn’t that better than nothing? Also, you could base it on a percentage. If football brings in 50% of the money, you
go there. If it’s basketball or baseball, as it is at
other schools, it goes there. This finally has to prevail. The NCAA has gotta be slapped around. There’s too many smart ways to do it for it
to not have already been done. Right. North Dakota voters could soon legalize marijuana,
but state republicans are pulling out all their dirty tricks to stop it. You know what? Yeah, I get it’s state republicans. You know who the money is behind the state
republicans? It’s always been pharma. The pharma. Yeah. Big pharma. We saw it in Florida. Big pharma pumped in gazillions of dollars
to try to slow everything down. They’re doing it state by state because it’s
really affecting their sales. You know who else is behind it? The alcohol industry. The alcohol industry has actually taken this
position, oh, this is terrible. We’re gonna get people addicted to drugs. Really? Like you haven’t addicted them to alcohol
for the last 100 years? Pick it up. What’s happening now in North Dakota is exceptionally
disgusting because the Office of Management and Budget there … Well, to back it up a
second, there’s proposition 3 on the ballot this year with legalized marijuana. The OMB comes out in North Dakota and says
well, hold up. This is gonna cost you about $7 million. Are you prepared to pay that? Because when they did their analysis, they
didn’t consider any of the money they would make off legalizing marijuana, they only considered
the cost. And, they have $2 million allocated, they
say, just to going through and expunging criminal records. $2 million to go through a computer program. We’re short on time here, but this is what’s
so interesting about this story. They did the same thing on medical marijuana
there, and they made the same kind of claim, oh, it’s gonna be $8.7 million. Well, at the end of the day, it was $360,000
was the real cost that was attached to that. It’s just that big pharma is feeding them
this information. They have lobbyists all over North Dakota,
selling this stupidity to legislators who most of the time are pretty stupid. They’re pretty easy to sell. But, it’s always big pharma, always the alcohol
industry trying to stop medical marijuana or just the broad use of marijuana. I’m Mike Papantonio with Farron Cousins. You’re watching Ring of Fire, and we’re gonna
be right back.

Business Marketing


(delightful music) There are a lot of different opportunities in marketing, which is why I think it’s such a versatile degree. I love to work in fast-paced, creative environment, which is why I think it’s perfect for me. The Business Marketing degree, here at Rio Hondo College, prepares us for sales, advertising and promotion. And it is especially helpful for someone who is already working in the marketing field, and wants to become more competitive. So the cool part, is that we get to choose our own electives. So, whether I wanna work on the creative side, or the management level side, I get to pick the classes that will help me get where I want to go. Marketing is a creative and exciting field to be a part of, and Rio Hondo College is preparing me to jump right in. (delightful music)

Distinctions: Marina Girju – Assistant Professor, Marketing


I’m Marina Girju. I’m Professor of Marketing
at DePaul University. I started with a background in computer science. However, for me, the value comes from actually
having the business knowledge. I worked for one of the biggest companies
in the US and the leader in the snack industry also for one of the biggest research [companies]
in the US market. The whole work was about finding a story—why consumers do what they
do and therefore what should the company do? It helps me approach teaching and presenting
the material from a more practical—much more practical angle. Given the experiences in the work place, I
can come up with problems and scenarios for students that are not theory based, rather
application of the theory. Our students get programming skills in addition
to business skills—marketing skills. In our classes—Big Data classes, analytics
classes—I have the students focus on programing and also business strategy, analytics, and
how to put the two together. We work together on doing research and then
the goal is to actually write a research paper and publish it in various journals. In that process, students acquire these skills
and they have this real life experience that they can use when they look for a job.
