Sassy City Girl reviews, Orphan Black. Watch it now on Crave TV. Tracy Gerhardt’s Love Winx Page.

Orphan Black .png

Orphan Black is a Canadian sci-fi TV series filmed mostly in Toronto. The fifth and final season started on June 10, 2017. I first came across this show in 2014 and it’s been my favorite ever since. It examines moral issues around cloning, has great characters, and is constantly surprising me. I’m sad that it’s ending, but I have seen what happens to shows that get dragged out so they keep airing. Besides, it will be an amazing season if the first episode was any indication.

Orphan Black centers around a group of female clones all played by Tatiana Maslany. The series opens with con-artist Sarah Manning witnessing a woman commit suicide. She notices that Beth Childs looks exactly like her and steals her purse. She meets several of her clones soon after. At first, Sarah is only interested in Beth’s money, but she grows to care about her sisters. They are fighting threats from the extremely religious Proletheans and the science institute DYAD. A few of the clones also develop a

A few of the clones also develop a mysterious life-threatening illness. The show examines the moral implications of cloning as well as how it affects each sister’s identity. Other clones include soccer mom Alison, scientist Cosima, Ukrainian assassin Helena, and “pro clone” Rachel. Each one has her own personality and struggles.

Sometimes I find it hard to believe they are all portrayed by the same actress. Maslany is extremely talented, doing many different accents flawlessly. The non-clone characters are fantastic as well. Sarah’s biological daughter Kira is very precocious and senses when things are not right. Her foster brother Felix and mother Siobhan have strong personalities yet are very loving. Cosima’s girlfriend Delphine does whatever she feels is best for her even if it compromises their relationship. Alison’s husband Donnie often provides much needed comic relief. I recall a scene where he accidentally killed an antagonist and I couldn’t help laughing.

Another thing that makes the show amazing is unexpected plot twists. I didn’t like Helena in the first season. However, she turned out to have a soft side and is now one of my favorites. Certain characters turn out to have hidden motives or be more involved in the conspiracy than I thought. The genetic original was not who I was expecting at all. There are many emotional moments. One scene in season four had me crying harder than I ever have during a TV show. I even tweeted that I wished I could kill a certain antagonist. However, there are many heartwarming moments too. I really enjoyed the ending of season three where several clones were having dinner together and reminiscing about recent events.

If you have not seen Orphan Black, I highly recommend it. The show deals with moral issues of cloning, has amazing characters with strong bonds, and always surprises you. New episodes air every Saturday at 10 PM on Space and are available on space.ca soon after. Past seasons can be watched on Crave TV. I am excited to see what transpires during the rest of the final season.

Ashton Deroy’s Beach Body & Max 30 Review

Ugly side of Beach Body .png

Beach Body.png

Ashton Deroy Writes: I have gone on record body shaming, speaking in disgust about people who don’t workout and making a parody of our nation’s obesity issue. My views on weight have drastically changed since then…

As you can tell this content is about the Beach Body Max 30 program. So what are the wonderful side effects from doing a month of this program? 

  1. Way too much work on my legs. I feel like half the weight I lost was in my legs. 
  2. I can’t wake up in the morning, My muscles literally hurt too much to get out of bed.
  3. I have no sex drive, I believe that is a result of the program’s over intensity. 

Beach body is dangerous.png

The video above discusses some other problems like the expensive nutritional products, the multi-level marketing setup of the company and the fact the videos are sped up! 

What are other people saying about Beach Body Programs? 

Beach Body is a scam, Ethan Vanderbilt suggests that you will never make the money back from your initial investment. The Business opportunity is that you get a company website duplicate that you sell products for them on. “Why do you have to pay to sell for Beach Body?” Ethan says. Plus you are not really qualified to be a coach of fitness & weight loss because they go to through no qualified athletic or dietary training.

Team Beach Body employees on Average make less than minimum wage. 

Better Business Bureau Complaints

Beatter Business Bureau Complaint.png

Leigh joined up just to be a customer, not even to try & get a wage but she was still pissed about how they went about her cancellation & refund. 

Kim S..png

So Kim canceled & was still getting charged. AKA she was being robbed in lamens terms and the company was not claiming responsibility from the customer service end as they should of. For those who don’t know… You can cancel most web subscriptions now by clicking a button. That is what I did when I canceled my porn membership! 

Deception

Sharon was deceptively charged by the company which any first-year Business student can tell you directly violate the competition act here in Canada. She may have also been baited with one offer and then they proceeded to charge on another offer which legally is a Bait & switch. 

Commentary on findings. 

Obviously, a Multi Level Marketing company is going to have a lot of negative findings on their poor business practices. They are a business that runs 100% off of an unethical business practice! 

Why is no one negatively commenting on the exercise programs? They are military style exercises grandma could do eh! I’d tell Grandma to stick to her 1980’s Jane Fonda DVDs. 

The workout videos are too intense, they don’t have proper regulatory warnings, the after effects are tremendous pain. Also, you are told you can do these workout videos alone right… Well, what about someone checking your posture? Poor posture during exercises leads to back issues, joint pain and long-term injuries that can take years off of your life.

Like I said executing these videos has had adverse effects on my health. In the end, I think you should save your money. Do workout videos on YouTube & don’t pay for these dangerous videos!

The validity of Content Marketing & website information systems.

Seneca Library Macy's case study.png

If you were ever curious about who helped Macy find their digital marketing success for 2015. Look no further than Madras, the company has basically validated the effectiveness with their results for the digital marketing campaign for Macy’s in the United States and why it is important for a company to outsource  (hire external from the company)  digital marketing jobs. Why does this excite me? It validates Marketing beyond just sales generation. 

The Marketing agency executed the web listings for 300,000 products, executed delivery of 3,000 creative units, managed 100,000 assets on Macys.com CMS and maintained 15,000 search engine landing pages. This information proves the importance of setting up website information systems opposed to website advertising systems which only record short bits of information to generate quick sales or lead foot traffic to a store.

“Macy’s Case Study.” Seneca Libraries. N.p., n.d. Web. 15 May 2017. <Seneca Libraries database>. Macy’s Case study reveals results for their Content Management system campaign, digital marketing & digital selling. The article discusses how through the Content management campaign they were able to get 15,000 pieces of Macy’s content indexed in search engines. Basically, Madras took the brand from the digital perspective and made it a high functioning machine for their digital channels including social media, website blog, Search engine indexes & video content.

Why we aren’t currently social media marketing

Presentation1.png

Ashton Deroy writes: It is plain to see I still write Social media, website & SEO content. However I have not taken out any web based advertising in 2017 at all. Why haven’t I taken out any ad space? According to Marketline Instagram and Facebook are the best affordable mediums for a B2B targeted campaign.

What am I doing instead? I am relying on content to gain traction, I am reaching out in the community and utilizing the SEO tools with the WordPress.com Business package. Listen it is clear to see that within this year if I want to continue running my business I will need a new advertising + Sales campaign! It is just a matter of creating one that will bring in new contacts that I can convert in to clients. I am also going to hang up posters around Toronto.

It is also important to not here that it is great if Social Media Marketing boosts your idea! It is not great if your idea lives and dies with Social Media Marketing…

There is no conversion guarantees in Social media marketing. Some people like to think like, okay if I get in front of this ____ people, I will sell to 4% of the people! It is highly idealistic, but you a web based business, If you convert 1%, it is a miracle. Plus web businesses have the cliche flaw of being really under developed. I sold to my first client thanks to social media advertising, but it was a small sell.

Minimizing advertising to focus on development. Ironically, I saw Beaut doing this and I thought it was stupid as hell! It still kind of is, because my sales projects aren’t down just my advertising is down. Toronto Businessphere needs a new logo, we need to print merchandise & create a community relations plan.

Capital expansion. Ashton Deroy is going to be starting a job at Teleperformance in time to put a little capital in the business and keep fueling this little fire. Don’t let the internet fuel you, these businesses require a massive amount of capital to start, and a massive amount to keep going! Considering people that enhance Toronto-Businessphere get paid. The need is still present for full time employment to continue development of the brand.

My friend actually said “This is a good idea but I wouldn’t spend money on it until it makes money.” Having no business background she had no idea for an idea to make money you actually have to spend a lot of money. Business projects are long term investments that require capital to fund and can require increasing amounts of capital for five years before even approaching a break even point. This was something I learned through studying Financial accounting in school though, not from working telemarketing where her and I met.

I do see other people online begging for their projects to expand so it can become full time work. I actually don’t think that is what I want at this time… I think I am glad this project is still small because if it was big it would be out of control a bit. I also think I miss the working world and I can’t wait to go back in to it and develop more professionally.

Article 1: Keys to team work success, Article 2: Anything Dark?

Shaun Vollick Seneca

Podium

 

March 27th 2017, Ashton Deroy was in the Senacentre to learn about success, teamwork and project management from Shaun Vollick MEd, PMP.  This was an event organized by the Seneca College Business group which had free pizza, coffee & discussion amongst Business, Human Resources and Engineering students.

Team work agile approach Shaun Vollick proposes that the new methodology for team work should be approached with an agile approach. Constantly adapting the team to the changes of economics practices, competitors and demands of the client/customer. He does suggest this ideology is not idiot proof as it requires management to eventually produce end products to projects!

Success keys , work to not specialize, from what I gathered there needs to be more focus put on showing up communicating and delegating. A project can change in a heartbeat, think of the variables in play with any project, who is it for? What is the desired outcome? What is the research? With all of these factors projects can change in the blink of an eye. So if you can’t show up for them, you won’t succeed in them! 

Project management three general guidelines 

  1. Delegate – It is better if you don’t try to do everything yourself. Make sure everyone knows their role and its purpose. 
  2. Document – Produce minutes or record keeping of all team team meetings. 
  3. Ask for help, Give help – For school & work projects you may be learning like everyone else. Don’t be afraid of being a little lost! It sounds cliche but give help to your peers, everyone has a different learning curve.

Anything dark-.png

Written by Ashton Deroy

Gay, Atheist and Business person

Commentary: I wrote this essay for myself because I really have not written anything creative in a while. I wanted to write something against the fake optimism we as a society are expected to conform to every day. The tone of this article is very dark. I feel that is because “Smiling” is not the key to making all of your problems go away. I consider the benefits of fake optimism more false promises than useful guidance for a higher quality life. 

I truly achieved some of my best writing, accomplishments, and attention through negative, dark & satirical works. Not from writing happy stories & articles meant to satisfy everyone. 

Instructions to operate in life: Stand to the right or left single file, use a good posture, and smile! No matter what is going on let them all see you smile because not smiling is a negative thing. You can engage in conversation with the people to your right & left but make sure they follow our “code of conduct.” Also, remember to smile because everyone likes it when you smile! Remember you live to serve and please and nothing more.

If you are in the service industry in Ontario Canada for over one year. Hopefully, you have learned to submit, be passive and compartmentalize your personal life from your professional life. Make no mistake you are a slave, you will work when you are told, follow rules and guidelines and you may not request a day off or salary increase, that is non-negotiable! Answer every inquiry with a happy to help attitude and if you are not a passive to confrontation, you better learn!

“Stop worrying about what’s scary or stressful” they will tell us!

The little Things. Toronto: Anything Bright, 2016. Print.

Once you believe that lie you are almost ready to believe the other lies of optimism to. Lies that include consuming your way to happiness, while in the same breath they will tell you to accept earning less at work because money does not equal happiness. All because this is society that would rather push two contradicting beliefs of operation rather than accept there is a real issue upon us. To be optimistic though this is to accept not being entitled to a better job, a nicer place and a more exciting romance! 

Ever sit there and wonder why are mental illness rates keep shooting upwards?

Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S.—43.8 million, or 18.5%—experiences mental illness in a given year. Approximately 1 in 25 adults in the U.S.—9.8 million, or 4.0%—experiences a serious mental illness in a given year that substantially interferes with or limits one or more major life activities.”

NAMI. Mental Health By The Number. N.p.: National alliance on mental illness, n.d. Print. This article is to write about the prevalence and rise of mental illness in North America. Ashton Deroy is using this statistic to make a direct connection between mental illness and the type of work society does. Ashton Deroy asks When you look at this statistic, does being blindly optimistic seem logical? Or do you maybe think if something is bothering you it might be time to talk about it. That is might be time to be a little negative, hurt and just maybe it is time to feel used!

Did you think about why mental illness rates are shooting up? They aren’t, they just went unrecorded while society conformed to the comforting lies of blind optimism, god and the cloudy beautiful place we go when we die. As an atheist, I equate the belief in god as the same stupidity as blind optimism. So you can bet one of the first things I want to ask a blindly optimistic person when I meet them. “Do you believe in god?” If I were them I would be too optimistic, because I am high. My drug is religion, religion & conformity.

Religion & conformity isn’t a drug you have to shoot up, it isn’t going to give you the shakes if you go without it but it is quite mentally powerful never the less. Just look at the body count of people dying every year due to nationally enforced religious laws…. What should you think about instead of religion? Well, what is real? Are you getting paid enough? Are you getting laid enough? Are you respected to your exact liking in your place of work? Of course, these are not the fixations society wants you to have because they might just make you too uppity.

Thank you for reading this, I know this was not a comforting piece to read. However, I wanted to write it to challenge the blind optimism that encouraged time to time. Is there anything wrong with being happy? No there is nothing wrong with it. Is there anything wrong with presenting as happy all of the time? Yes, it is unauthentic and fake!

Achieving a sales revenue & profit in a non-essential business is becoming increasing difficult.

Achieving a sales revenue & profit in a non-essential business is becoming increasing difficult..png

Written by Ashton Deroy

Do you run a human interest website? Or sell knick-knacks, antiques, collectibles, accessories, knitted clothing and etc. Well bad news sales revenue & profit is becoming increasing difficult for micro business & small business. For this essay I am going to look at three mandatories for profitable business.  That include being Marketable, using clear positioning and leveraging high reach.

Marketable

Just because you want to sell doesn’t mean the customer wants to buy in a way where you break even, and forget profiting!

Sandals, Leah. Canadians Spending Less Time on Arts and Culture. N.p.: Canadian art, n.d. Print.

In this article there is a discussion about how Canadians are spending less money on arts & culture.

In fact the connection has been made clearly with the recession in 2008 to Canadians spending less on leisure period.

The same economic principles applied for this can also be applied to Custom T-Shirts, Knick-knacks, entertainment. In B2B apply this economic principle to Advertising, Graphics Design & media. It gets worse if you are not pro-actively seeking leads, direct selling & creating content.

 

Clear Positioning

This may come as a shock but even though I am a writer for a recreational student forum. I have thought about the positioning of Toronto-Businessphere advertising clearly and I have made my messaging consistent in Facebook ads used to generate leads.

Toronto Businessphere Positioning Statement: We are a Business Student and graduate business forum that offers free articles to readers on the 6 Environments of marketing & we offer marketing solutions to middle to large sized businesses & organizations.

I’ve worked two separate publishing jobs where I had no comprehension of sales positioning because it literally was no thought out.

High Reach

You don’t know if a product or service is going to sell unless you utilize a high reach system like Facebook or Instagram, paired with a direct selling strategy to leads generated.

This is where we come into play, for $300 hire Toronto-Businessphere & Ashton Deroy for Social media Advertising strategy. 7* 12 = $84, $16 is overhead expense. The rest goes to social media ad space and lead generation which will be capitalized on by an expert sales person.

Roma Rorssf Seneca Student Federation President statement

 Campaign poster.jpg
What are your qualifications? “My qualifications are that I’ve been on the recreation council, varsity softball team, I’ve been a mentor to two Seneca freshmen student via the SMILE program and I’ve even founded my own business. I’m very passionate about leadership and involvement and this suits me well for the position.”
What are the duties of the Seneca Student Federation President? The duties of SSF president are student advocacy, both at the school and at a provincial level. Duties include the general managent of the SSF. It’s up to the president to be a voice of guidance to the SSF for the benefit of students. 
What do I plan to accomplish? This answer varies from campus to campus, and group to group, but overall I intend to improve the level of customer service that students recieve, the marketing for events so that people are more aware of events, and better customization. 
Food statement: Many people are interested in better food options at their campus, more mental health awareness and a reduction of a $40 fee to early childhood education students who are mandated to pay for a booklet offered by the ministry that they could have printed off the internet for free. These are just some of the challenges that I’ll look at tackling as president. 

Thank you, and I hope to meet many of you on campus!
