The Creatives: Meet Singer/Songwriter Aaron Camper (Video)

first_img Aaron Camper’s early memories of the Philly music scene came from being an eager, talented 18 year-old roaming the halls of Larry Gold’s “The Studio,” — now Milk Boy The Studio — when the collective energy of artists like The Roots, Bilal, Musiq Soulchild and Jill Scott were just beginning to bubble over into mainstream music. Camper recalls seeing all of these artists pushing the limits of soul and R&B music, as well as their own sounds to the next level. Turns out, Camper was right at home amongst these musical giants.  Since those days, Camper has gone on to tour the world alongside of many of music’s biggest stars, including Chris Brown, Jill Scott and Justin Timberlake. Now, the world is about to find out that the voice behind these powerhouse artists is a star in the making as well. Not only is Camper a talented vocalist and performer,  but he’s also creative and sought-after songwriter. He’s composed songs with artists like Dirty Money and Jason Nelson, and even pens many of his own records. In 2011, Camper made a bold step and dropped his mixtape Welcome to My World with friend and business partner, highly-acclaimed musical director, Adam Blackstone. The mixtape was released under Blackstone’s label, BASSic Black Entertainment (BBE) and garnered its own buzz as Camper traveled performing shows between his background gigs with major headliners. The project showcased his songwriting and eclectic musical taste which ranges from The Winans to Phil Collins. If you’ve seen Aaron live then you know that something special happens when he steps on stage, whether he’s the forefront or holding it down on background. His voice is full of emotion and his live set is fun and always tells a story. He takes you back to your 90s hip-hop favorites and transitions seamlessly into his songs like “Breaking My Heart” and “Madness.” Philly 360° caught up with Camper while on break from touring with Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience World Music Tour. We followed along as Aaron performed alongside of  powerhouse lineup that included Eric Roberson, She Is Phoenix, Astronauts Really Fly and Kontraband 215 for the hit music showcase Aaron Camper & Friends.  Check out our recap here.  This Maryland native and adopted Philadelphian has deep Philly ties and continues to remain connected to the Philly music scene — even if he just drops in town for a few weeks between tour dates. Aaron recently collaborated with West Philly emcee Chill Moody for their song “So in Love” and is currently cooking up some goodness with music producers Dilemma and JoeLogic. We’re pretty sure that there will be some new music coming from the Aaron’s camp very soon.  A genuine spirit and incredibly talented artists, it’s time everyone in Philly, and beyond, gets to know Aaron Camper.

5 Skills You Must Acquire Before You Can Lead

Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Register Now » I often help others find ways to “level up” in their lives and start moving toward their passions. One surefire way that I’ve found to increase anyone’s forward momentum is developing the individual’s leadership potential.But it takes some skill and hard work to pull off being a leader.Chances are, you’re already leading in some area of your life, even if not at work. Whether you love leading or feel reluctance in that role, here are five skills I’ve found essential for being the pathfinder in any area of your life:Related: Why Being Self-Critical Can Make You a Stronger Founder1. Practice self-reflection.One of the keys to being a good leader is having the ability to reflect back on decisions made and look at situations, whether good or bad, as lessons.Once you’ve done so, you can actively apply what you’ve learned. Taking mistakes or failures in stride and moving forward is an essential part of becoming a leader of integrity. Many of these lessons are useful to share with staff and strategic partners. In my case, I’ve found they often apply even to my children.2. Be proactive rather than reactive.Successful leaders come to the table prepared for a variety of scenarios and know how to behave when situations fall apart or don’t go according to plan. Preparedness ensures that you’re never in a situation where you can’t offer value or assist in problem solving as needed.This is simply being proactive. If you’re in a reactive state, chances are you’re not operating from a place of calm; your emotions are leading the charge. The best decisions, however, often result from when your thoughts and emotions work in tandem.You must always consider not only what’s favorable for the company’s bottom line but also what’s best for the team and the overall morale of the company.Related: 8 Keys to Being Identified as a Leader3. Find an unshakeable “why.”Effective leaders know their “why” and live it always. If you lack a clear vision about what you want personally and professionally, your commitment and focus will be inconsistent and you’ll fail to inspire those you lead.The greatest leaders have the drive to ensure that their vision comes to fruition even in the face of adversity. It’s this can-do attitude that gives rise to the most successful and most rewarding leadership experiences. Great leaders have a clear vision that starts from within. It’s drawn from their understanding of their natural gifts and desires.4. Feel passion for what you do.If you don’t have a deep burning in your belly for success in your venture, it will be difficult to maintain the consistency you need to lead your team to victory.The bigger the impact you want to have, the greater your influence must be. And nothing stirs the pot more than having a passionate leader who’s not only committed to the success of the company but also to that of each employee.5. Be prepared to do what others won’t.As the old adage goes, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” Great leaders know that for them, failure is not an option. Even if everything seems to be falling apart, a great leader has the self-discipline to stand up to failure or it crumbles the business like a house of cards.This means resisting the urge to make excuses and always doing the hard work, even when it seems like sheer agony. It all comes back to the need for crystal clear vision: Sometimes picturing the end result and the satisfaction of the challenge being behind you is the only way to make it through the rough spots.Related: Join the League of Extraordinary Bosses: 4 Habits to Cultivatelast_img read more

Where to Stash That Cryptocash This Man Put It Under His Skin

first_img Hear from business owners and CEOs who went through a crippling business problem and came out the other side bigger and stronger. November 13, 2014 4 min read You’ve heard of hiding money under your mattress. How about stashing it under your skin?That’s what Martijn “Mr. Bitcoin” Wismeijer just did. Apparently the early Bitcoin adopter likes to keep his cryptocash, ahem, close at hand.The virtual currency diehard had a pair of xNT near-field communication (NFC) microchips injected into the backs of his hands last week, right into the fleshy webbing between the thumb and index finger. So, yeah, he’s officially a cyborg now, a walking crypto-geek fantasy (and promotional machine) come true.Related: The World’s Newest Lie Detector Could Be a Sensor Implanted in Your MouthRT @paulbuitink: coffee with cyborg @MrBitc0in who has chip implants inhands to store #bitcoins under the skin 🙂 pic.twitter.com/avO1Qfs44I— Martijn Wismeijer (@twiet) November 12, 2014The handlebar-mustached Dutch programmer, who runs a global Bitcoin ATM collective, told CoinDesk he’s using the miniscule skin-deep caches not to store just Bitcoin. He’s holding other cryptocurrencies in it, too, including Darkcoin, Dogecoin and Litecoin. Because of course he is.The chips are compatible with devices containing an NFC antenna, like smartphones, tablets and other gadgets. They can be used to wirelessly share contact details, log into computers, unlock doors — and, yes, to store cryptocurrency. Right inside your paws. Um, how handy is that?Tinier than a single grain of rice (2 mm x 12 mm) and encased in a glass cylinder, the radio frequency identification-enabled (RFID) chips are a bit like the implants pet owners have veterinarians insert into their furry friends to follow their whereabouts. Like pet trackers, they’re powered by the gadgets they’re paired with, so no batteries are required.Related: Skin and Bones: Oh, the Body Parts You Can Make With 3-D Bio-printersBut there’s one big difference: Wismeijer’s implants are dangerous. They put him at risk of infection and his body could reject them altogether. He knew that going in, though. He bought the chips for $99 each from a freaky online biohacking/DIY body modification store aptly called DangerousThings. The site sells all kinds of freaky, potentially injurious non-FDA approved “biohacks.”The embedded cryptocurrency chips — yep, actual dangerous things — come complete with injection syringes and other “medical” supplies that no licensed doctor would probably touch. That’s why body piercing “artist” Tom van Oudenaarden was called in for the job. You can watch the whole crazy injection go down in Wismeijer’s video below. Heads-up: It’s not for the squeamish.  Even if it’s not as painful as the injection part, storing cyptocurrency on the 888-byte capacity chip sounds like a pain. First, to set up a password on the device, users have to download a free, Android-only companion app. Then, to enter their private Bitcoin keys into the chip, one long line at a time, they need to download NXP’s TagWriter app. And it gets more complicated from there.  Related: A Tiny, Whip-Tailed Robot Can Administer Meds Anywhere In the BodyYou’d think, for all that work, embedded people should also be able to use the chips to make and take cyptocash payments in the wave of a hand. Not so. At least not yet.  Wismeijer told CoinDesk that he thinks some 3,000 people are already implanted with a chip “like his.” How about you? Would you wear one on your insides?    If you are brave enough to biohack your bod with one (or two or more), Wismeijer says you should resist the urge to try the chip too soon, even if he didn’t.Related: The U.S. Military Wants to Inject People’s Brains With Painkilling Nanobots That Could Replace Medicine“Don’t be like me,” he told CoinDesk. “I wanted to try it out even before the blood dried up. Everyone wants to try it out right away…but you should leave it alone until it is no longer swollen and healed.”Blood. Swelling. Risk of infection and rejection.

Meet the Hover Camera Passport Your Personal Selfie Drone

first_img Selfie drones are a thing. We’ve seen a few models with the sole purpose of following you around, taking video and snapping pictures of you when you’re adventuring or doing something as banal as grocery shopping.The Hover Camera Passport, on display at CES, is another of these small, portable aircraft. It has some design advantages when compared with others we’ve reviewed, including the Dobby, in that its rotors are protected by a plastic cage. This prevents them from getting damaged in flight, and prevents you from inadvertent injury.It sports a camera that can capture stills at 13-megapixel quality and video at 4K resolution. And, because of it small, lightweight design, no FAA registration is required. The Passport is controlled via a smartphone app (Android and iOS are supported), and can track your movements based on the location of your phone, or track a subject using facial recognition.The folding design is a big plus for folks who want to own a drone, but not a serious high flyer like the DJI Phantom 4. It can fly at speeds up to 17mph (about a third of what the Phantom is capable of), but while you can take a big drone and fly it up to a mile away from home base, Hover Camera recommends that you keep the Passport within 65 feet (20 meters) of your phone. A short battery life is a big reason for that — you can expect it to hover in place for just 10 minutes on a fully charged battery.It’s on sale now, but you may balk at the $599 price, which is a lot to ask for a personal selfie drone. You can get a very capable DJI Phantom 3 Standard for less, after all. But if you love capturing your own image, and want to put an aerial spin on your selfies, the Passport looks like a promising option for narcissists with deep pockets.
