Nike debuts ‘Unlimited Courage’ film to celebrate everyday athletes

first_img Related ‘Unlimited Courage’ follows ‘Unlimited Future’ and ‘Unlimited You’, as part of a campaign that has already struck a chord with millions of consumers around the world, amassing over 260 million global views across multiple platforms to date. Unlimited Future quickly became Nike’s most retweeted film, and most liked film ever on Twitter.“We are connecting with consumers and narrowing the distance between elite athletes and everyday athletes,” explained Nike’s Chief Marketing Officer, Greg Hoffman. “We want to inspire athletes everywhere to dream bigger, break their own barriers and be the best they can be.”A release from NIKE adds that, in what will be an unrelenting 2016 of unlimited sport, the campaign will see a series of upcoming spots showcasing extraordinary athlete journeys and highlighting some of sports’ most iconic athletes.The films are one component of Nike’s global campaign celebrating athletes around the world across a year of sport. ‘Unlimited’ consumer activations are taking place in Los Angeles, London, New York, Paris, Rio, Sao Paolo, Shanghai and Tokyo, with Nike’s Unlimited Cross-Category footwear collection available at retail across the globe.www.nike.com NIKE has announced that its next film aims to celebrate a summer of sport and encourage athletes everywhere to ‘embrace their unlimited mind-set’.‘Unlimited Courage’ celebrates an extraordinary athlete, Chris Mosier, and his determination and spirit to become the first openly trans athlete to earn a spot on a US National Team. It is the latest instalment in Nike’s ‘Nike Unlimited Campaign’, which hails both the everyday athlete and the champion athletes who regularly push beyond the unimaginable.Chris Mosier’s story is one of staunch determination, inevitable struggles, and hard-won triumphs to showcase his full potential and compete at the highest level of his sport. At the age of four years old, Mosier became aware that his gender identity (male) and biological sex (female) didn’t align.Competing in female athletics, he didn’t feel as though he was competing as his authentic self. This has propelled Mosier on his journey to represent his country at the highest level in duathlon. “Being the first trans man on a US men’s National Team was a dream come true for me,” said Mosier.“Everything that I’ve done in the last five, six years since I started to transition, has been with a ‘Just Do It’ mind-set. I didn’t know if I would be competitive against men; I just did it. Every success that I’ve had since then has shown me that anything is really possible.”last_img read more

The best part of my job is reading the comment cards and seeing how appreciative people are of the Self Help Center. And the best part about it is that it does not cost the taxpayer any money.”The Brown Award honors programs and projects dedicated to matching the unmet legal needs of the middle class and those of moderate incomes with lawyers who provide affordable legal information, services, and representation.The award is presented annually to those who have made creative contributions to the delivery of legal services in ways that are exemplary and replicable.Although the Pinellas Clerk’s office is one example of a clerk of court showing excellence in providing pro se services, there are many clerks across the state who are providing ministerial assistance to the public when needed. The is another good example of how the clerks are filling a much-needed role.“The court system can be frustrating and confusing, but those who access the Self Service Centers have a completely different experience,” said Sharon Bock, Palm Beach County clerk & comptroller.“Not only can you get legal advice for a fraction of what it would cost elsewhere, but you can also save time by preparing select court forms online.”Many other clerks also provide self- help services online, providing citizens with another resource.

JH Kemp uses Enerpac gantry in ex-press move

first_imgThe press was being relocated within the same building, so JH Kemp used the Enerpac SL400 gantry to move the machine without dismantling and reassembling it. This saved the client – Salop Design & Engineering, a metal pressings and assemblies manufacturer in Telford, UK – three weeks’ downtime.JH Kemp said: “After some preparatory work involving removal of the press feed conveyors, a minimum amount of guarding, floor plates around the press and bolts holding the press in position, the press in its entirety was lifted off the its foundations using the gantry. It was then moved along the gantry tracks to its new position in the press shop.“Once in line with the new position the Enerpac SL400 gantry was re-rigged and the press uplifted and placed on to the prepared press foundation.”www.jhkemp.co.ukwww.enerpac.comlast_img read more
