Unlike today, the past allowed people to walk around the streets carrying their favorite stations and radio tunes. Most people walked around with radio cassettes while playing music as the other side of the tape recorded songs. In the 80s, the radio cassette trend became prominent with an added movie story line, which made the recording trend popular. The invention of the Walkman in the 90s demonstrated how individuals enjoyed music privately. A decade after the 90s, an iPod was invented. This is a clear indication that technology grows with the mass of what an individual considers innovative.

The definition of fashion and technology is currently ongoing with fashion designers providing custom-tailored goods and services through the existing innovative technology. The symbiotic relationship offers a high standard of technology use and functionality. According to a Dutch fashion guru, Anouk Wipprecht, who is prominent for her Avant grade designs, technology is like a playground. It is a place of experiment because as you explore deeper into the innovative ways, you acquire various incredible skills to empower your creativity. Anouk Wipprecht has tailored creative designs including a drink making dress, self-painting dress, the Pseudomorphs, and the DareDroid.

The Future of Fashion and Technology

Other fashion trends develop through technology to protect the users. Although wearing a bike protection may not be trendy, Terese Alstin and Anna Haupt designed a fashionable protector to be worn around the neck. The system has a popping airbag from the neckwear to offer head protection from impact.

Unless it is opened, the user has a clear visibility of the surroundings, which brings in the negative element of wearing a helmet. Through wearing Frontline Gloves tailored by Ashwin Rajan, firefighters can achieve massive protection as they can pass valuable information to their teammates through hand gestures.

Not to be confused with the actress of the same name, Crystal Hunt is a 1991 martial arts motion picture. It was shot in Thailand probably back to back with the 1992 martial arts movie known as Cheetah on Fire. Both fighting feature films featured much the same cast.

Specifically, it stars Donnie Yen, Sibelle Hu, Carrie Ng Ka-lai, Lau Ka-fai, Michael Woods, John Salvitti, Ken Lo Wai-kwong and Fujimi Nadeki. The kung fu film was directed by Tsui Fat. Numerous online movie reviewers report that the motion picture was good because it was a bit different then most martial arts movies of that time.

The movie has an Indiana Jones-like storyline. It focuses on a hunt for a gold crystal with magical healing powers. (Hence the title-duh-Crystal Hunt.)

Each character has a motive. Lisa (played by Carrie Ng) wants the crystal to heal her sick father. Smugglers want it for more monetary motives.

Joyce (portrayed by Fujimi Nadeki) is searching for the crystal because it is a way to find her father the archaeologist who disappeared while hunting for it. Meanwhile, the authorities are also looking for it too in that they are trying to capture the smugglers.

Chi Liang, (played by Donnie Yen) is an ex-cop with issues. He teams up with his old partner (portrayed by Sibelle Hu) to assist his ex-ladyfriend in locating her dad. Michael Woods reportedly became a celebrity in Africa, Asia and Europe just for playing the bad buy here. Also praised for its blend of brutal action and comedy, Crystal Hunt had nothing to do with it.

Crystal Hunt, of course, is an American actress and burgeoning movie producer born on February 5, 1985. She has appeared in numerous commercials including an anti-drug advertisement with *NSYNC. She portrayed Lizzie Spaulding on the show Guiding Light from 2003 to 2006.

Her resume also includes playing Stacy Morasco from 2009 to 2010 on the show One Life to Live. Hunt also worked in the 2005 movie The Derby Stallion, and played Demetria “Dinky” Rosemead Hodgekiss two years later in the motion picture Sydney White. Crystal Hunt also produced the 2014 movie Talbot County.

The internet has become the great equalizer when it comes to the employee – business relationship. Now with the click of a button a customer can go online and leave a potentially damaging review that could smear the reputation of a hard working business, even if it’s untrue. As an entrepreneur your goal in the industry is to build a reputation. How do you respond when that gets threatened? There are a host of ways to respond, but this advice rings particularly true and effective.

When it comes to dealing with an online war of words your best bet, as a business, is to simply stay uninvolved. To succeed in a war of words you are better off taking the high road, avoiding the mud slinging, and focusing on your message and those that matter to you, namely the ones who can attest to your character. So when you see that first bad review pop up don’t respond to it with fire. Take a deep breath and follow the advice we are about to give.

The first thing that you’ll want to focus on are the customers that have, thus far, been happy with your business. Make assurances that your work will continue as it always have and that your high quality of service won’t change despite the difficult situation that you appear to have been put in. From there you can go ahead and show yourself to be as valuable as your work clearly demonstrates. Offer more content, more products, more services, and more of yourself to those that are already working with you. If you show yourself to be steadfast and reliable then all of that bad gossip won’t matter.

Finally you’ll want to keep your eyes down and stay focused on what it means to be an entrepreneur. Seek advice from loved ones or people whose opinion your cherish but otherwise stick to your job. You can also seek reputation rehabilitation through companies like searchcleanup.com as they’ll clean up your online reputation and help to get rid of the false gossip from your search results. From there you’ll just have to keep plugging away, offering your customers what they need.
