May 2017 Member Newsletter


COVR is extending the deadline for entering the Product, Jewelry, and Electronic Awards until May 15. From what we’re hearing, quite a few of you got caught up in tax deadlines (and politics, we suspect) so the awards schedule came at a bad time. You have our apologies for not thinking about that when we were planning the awards year.
Enter the Visionary Awards at the COVR website

If you didn’t have any new products in 2016, why not enter the Iconic categories? These categories are for products that have consistently performed well for you. Or consider one of the new Internet Radio, Blog, and Podcast categories.

Sacred Geometry Activations Oracle Deck
by Lon Art

Plato referred to sacred geometry as the language of the soul. For thousands of years, sacred geometry has been a part of every culture. It is the bond that connects us all to the cosmos; it is the true design of our soul. Sacred geometry is the blueprint of creation at the core of all form even at the core of you. Quantum artist LON has created 44 Activations that encourage your analytical mind to step aside so you can enter the domain of the subconscious and the soul, and connect to the quantum field the space of infinite potential. Working with these cards on a daily basis will help you to think outside the box, create a deeper sense of peace in your life, and become a powerful conscious creator.

About the Author:  LON was born and raised in Holland, where she attended art school and worked in the advertising and graphic arts industry. She now lives in San Diego, CA, and creates sacred geometry art images that are visual meditation tools, or Activations, that help people to navigate these changing times. She offers lectures and workshops and intuitive counseling to support a new way of thinking and activate people toward becoming fully multidimensional human beings.

Few of us felt anything short of sheer horror after seeing video and media reports of a bloodied United Airlines passenger being forcibly dragged off a plane by armed security guards.  How could any major brand, much less one of the largest brands in the world, allow such a thing to happen?

According to industry experts around the world who specialize in public relations crisis management, United Airlines biggest mistake, after the manhandling of a paid passenger, was not to speedily and immediately apologize. Whether the airline was within their legal right to remove a passenger from an overbooked flight, how the removal was handled was possibly not as bad as United’s horrible and terribly tardy response, accusing the passenger of being the problem and failing to apologize until many, many days later.  When the apology from CEO Munoz finally did come, following a decline in United stock value, many felt it was ‘too little, too late.’
