Daily BR!NK is always on the lookout for extraordinary individuals with boundless creativity and remarkable projects. Those pioneers of all ages and industries, with passion as their common denominator, are some of the most inspiring people we have had the chance to meet. Since we often feature them as they are about to embark on yet another journey, we thought it thought would be interesting to revisit some of our former interviewees and find out how well they have fared since they were featured on the site. These updates (a third necessary round) will also hopefully remind you of how diverse our site is, with fresh news ranging from job opportunities to triumph over immigration policies!

 

 

 

Jennifer Lilya

 

is currently looking for ambitious, well-writen, and well-spoken summer interns with a love of fashion/illustration to expand her online presence by promoting her work to fashion/trend blogs and magazines. Feel free to send her your resume and/or your blog links at jenniferlilya@gmail.com. Here is one of her latest fantastic pieces:

 

 

 

Remember Nicholas Smith? The young entrepreneur…

 

founded Sporting Sails, the first multi-purpose parachute-like device that can be attached to the human body for application in various action sports, mainly those involving downhill trajectories. Since we featured him on Daily BR!NK, the company has been featured in TIME Magazine and the New York Times.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Scott Ballum‘s online magazine, Sheepless

 

which features radical small businesses, is still going strong and actually highlighted ProFounder — the company started by Kiva’s Jessica Jackley, who was our BR!NKer a couple of weeks ago. Follow? If you need a refresher on Sheepless, check out the new trailer they released last month going over the basic concept of their online publication.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Marc Maron‘s twice-a-week podcast…

 

WTF with Marc Maron is still as popular as ever (check out his newest episode with the creator of Everybody Loves Raymond, Phil Rosenthal), and his dark humor and refreshing honesty attracts tens of thousands of listeners every Mondays and Thursdays. Well, turns out that as of last week, WTF with Marc Maron is being moved to public radio. And  it should come as no surprise that our very own other BR!NKer and Public Radio International’s Jesse Thorn is behind that decision: “We’ve taken the hundreds of episodes of the WTF podcast and boiled them down to what we think is ten hours of exceptionally compelling radio. We’ve chosen the best stories and the best guests and made a ten-episode public radio series […]”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lastly, husbands Josh Vandiver and Henry Velandia

 

might have made the biggest headlines since their interview was published a month ago.  Just as a refresher, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) currently prevents Velandia, originally from Venezuela, from getting a green card and staying in this country — a right offered to heterosexual couples. In a remarkable move, an adjournment was granted in Newark’s Immigration Court to allow Velandia to stay… at least until the end of the year. As Josh underlined, “We came very close to having our marriage destroyed. The judge could have issued a deportation order on that day. If Henry had been deported, we would have been separated for a minimum of ten years.” Check out the recent covering in the New York Times and CNN.
