Speaking of “Wonderful”, who do you think of?

Ma Weiwei who is frequently in the golden sentence ?

Qiu Chen, calm and calm ?

Summon Satan’s Huang Zhizhong ?

April 21, Qiu Chen, Ma Weiwei, Huang Zhizhong will surprise airborne New York, new original talk show debut, gathered in Manhattan!

As a singer of singularity, Qiu Chen, Ma Weiwei and Huang Zhizhong have become the ” power idols ” in the minds of young people with their excellent debating ability and distinctive style of debate .

However, the tickets for “Qi Yu said”, because they never sell, a ticket is rare. In order to see the true love of young people, they can only rush to grab tickets, and even on the salted fish, they have been fired for thousands of dollars.

Fortunately, this time, Xi Dapu Ben, finally no salt fish!

On April 21, everyone will get a rare opportunity to get close to the three great gods. The long-awaited official ticket is coming! This time, you must not miss it.

In this event, every big coffee will present a well-polished, personal style single talk show. White Dragon New York will also conduct an in-depth interview with the three great gods on the spot, from “Qi Yu Shuo” to entrepreneurial life, and all kinds of topics that you care most about!

About Qiqi

“The Wonderful Story” is China’s most popular talker (debate) talent show. It has set a myth that a single- click hit of 500 million hits and a single title sponsorship fee has broken 100 million. The program process and the contestants gossip on the hot search. The debates in each issue are discussed in a heated discussion.

The above data comes from “People’s Network”

Image from the web

Guest story first season BBKING Ma Weiwei

In the first season, BBKING Ma Weiwei , in the professional debate, is also the top logic, not talking nonsense, using the super popular interpretation and sensitive reaction speed to increase the level of debate, often bursting with golden sentences, making people clap their hands.

“You said that you need someone to accompany you, keep a dog!”

This sentence, which Ma Weiwei said five years ago, sounds classic now.

Domineering, sharp, and sharp, is the impression most people have on Ma Weiwei in the first season.

In the fifth season of “Qi Yu said”, there was a debate that made the audience cry, and the tough queen was crying, even called “the cruelest debate” –

If you have a bottle of water to eliminate sadness, do you want to drink?

At this time, Ma Weiwei was suffering from depression, taking medicine and getting good every day. My friends knew that Ma Weiwei was very painful.

This bottle of medicine seems to be a life-saving medicine for Ma Weiwei.

But Ma Weiwei said that she can’t drink .

Ma Weiwei explained in the next second, “If you forget you (friends), what is the meaning of my life.”

Then he couldn’t make a sound, and once he was stubborn, he was turned into nothing in the warmth of friendship.

Everyone discovered that Ma Weiwei has been changing and growing since the beginning of the five seasons.

The queen who never cries in the first season;

In the second season, I began to fall in love and gradually opened my heart;

The third season began to crap, and the friends began to make troubles;

In the fourth quarter, I shared my story and cried.

Ma Weiwei recalled the whole process. She felt that this was the process of slowly relaxing, and there was a feeling that life was getting better.

Such a queen seems to be fragile but more real.

Today’s Ma Weiwei is still the queen.

Her perspective is still unique, and her language expression still strikes the hearts of the people.

Her debate, like a sharp needle, pierces the real balloon and lets you see life.

Now she, after all the tempering, is still very sharp.

This time, she will have a unique expression, definitely worth looking forward to.

The second season BBKING Qiu Chen

The second season, BBKING Qiu Chen , nicknamed “worms”, is very calm. Qiu Chen also came to the scene in the last season of “White Stork”, which is our old friend.

Qiu Chen won the international college debate, and the winning international college debate was regarded as a lifelong dream by many Chinese debaters. In the past ten years of research, she has almost opened the universe and studied the logical deduction of thousands of arguments.

Different from Ma Weiwei’s sharpest style, Qiu Chen is rationally a pillar in the world of “The Wonderful Dance”. The powerful logic and knowledge reserve allowed her to win strength in the show, so that everyone can see the deep accumulation of this professional debater.

Qiu Chen won the second season of “Qi Yu said” –

Since then, this “Qiqi Youth” has added a glory symbol of “BB King” in addition to “the bottom line of the debater / the unreliable reporter / the editor who can’t do it / the half-way design . ”

This strange nickname is all Qiu Chen’s own description.

Saying that she has no bottom line / not reliable, but makes her look happy and funny.

Listening to Qiu Chen’s debate, there is no tension and no shock. Most of them are laughter, laughing and laughing. If you say something, you will listen to it.

But everyone smiled and laughed. Most people didn’t pay attention to the identity of Qiu Chen’s slash youth.

The identity of the slash youth is the source of Qiu Chen’s unique views.

This person who is arrogant in the debate field suffers from “late lazy cancer.” In the fifth season, “Qi Yu said,” Qiu Chen said frankly about his own cancer. That kind of optimism and relaxed warmth and impress many people

Even if he got cancer, Qiu Chen joked, “I am really sick.”

If you get cancer and see death, you can better face life.

Become “mournful” and see the tragedy in order to better embrace joy.

Qiu Chen, who is “fascinated” to “extremely”, can always see different scenery.

If we are finally exhausted by the sharpening of life, Qiu Chen tells us that funeral can also be a wonderful life.

As Qiu Chen said, “Since there are cracks, then you break it, rush out and look for light yourself.”

Let us join Qiu Chen to see how it shines.

The third quarter BBKING Huang Zhizhong

In the third quarter, BBKING Huang Zhizhong , nicknamed “Young Master”, is a squad of God.

Mu Xin said that talent, heart and mind are indispensable, doing everything. Huang Zhizhong just happened to be all three.

He is very passionate and he is motivated.

He is called “the god of debate”, “the treasure of the island”…

In the debate, he can completely immerse you in the scenes when describing the story, constructing a vivid new world for you, and your emotions will fluctuate closely following his language.

His expression of the level of arguments is often not at a certain level, but rather a statement of the perspective of God who constructed the world, both in the overall situation and in the rich.

Huang Zhizhong, who is known as “Satan” in the debate, can always tell the truth of the world that we have never noticed in the story, let us rush to the top.

“A happy pig that is infused with a nutrient solution and intoxicated in a fantasy can have the best happiness. A sober person is often painful.”

Whether awake or fantasy, you would be willing to enter the world of Huang Zhizhong, follow in his footsteps, think together.

Huang Zhizhong has too many stories to tell.

A child who has never spoken to others, a man who can see the hidden truth of the world.

Talking to Huang Zhizhong may be an opportunity to influence your life.

Certified (Smart) Scrum Product Ownership (CSPO®) – New York City – April 2… by Jeff Gothelf & Jeff Patton @ Center for Social Innovation, http://nyc.socialinnovation.org/ 601 West 26th Street, #325 New York, NY 10001 United States
Apr 22 @ 9:00 am – Apr 23 @ 5:30 pm
Certified (Smart) Scrum Product Ownership (CSPO®) - New York City - April 2... by Jeff Gothelf & Jeff Patton @ Center for Social Innovation, http://nyc.socialinnovation.org/ 601 West 26th Street, #325 New York, NY 10001 United States | | |

Certified (Smart) Scrum Product Ownership (CSPO®)
Jeff Patton and Jeff Gothelf, have teamed up to deliver an honest, irreverent, and extremely useful 2-Day Certified Scrum Product Ownership course. This is a course with a deliberate and unapologetic product-centric and Lean UX bias. If you’ve learned Agile and Scrum basics elsewhere and felt that product and user experience concerns were missing, we’ll fix that.

Put a brain on your Scrum process
Scrum, or common Agile practice, as it’s commonly taught, isn’t enough to create successful products. In the worst of cases Scrum can lead smart, well-intentioned people into doing stupid things all in the name of building more faster. While building software isn’t easy, the hardest part is making good decisions about exactly what to build.

This workshop puts a brain on your Scrum process. In it you’ll learn how to build up from an Agile and Scrum foundation by knitting Lean Startup, Lean UX, Design Thinking, and effective Product Thinking into more holistic product design and development process. The result is an approach to product development that let’s you and your team focus on creating products your users love.

What you’ll learn:
This course will spend a little time on Agile and Scrum essentials and moves quickly beyond. In this class you’ll learn:

How to structure a Holistic Product Development process that leverages Scrum for delivery and brings in the best of product, design, and lean thinking

How Product Owners, UX Designers, and Engineers collaborate to lead Cross-Functional Product teams

Effective Collaboration Skills that help build shared understanding

How to frame product improvement ideas using a simple Opportunity Canvas

How to use the Lean UX Canvas

Characterizing your users and their needs using Proto Personas

Exploring how users work now, and with your future solution using User Story Mapping

Collaborative ideation using the Design Studio practice

Identifying a Release Strategy built from small viable releases

Validating product solutions using MVP Tests

Reducing the risk of late delivery using a Development Strategy

How User Stories really work, and how to use Story-Driven Development throughout your process

Keeping discovery work visible in Scrum

Facilitating common Scrum Ceremonies that place equal focus on discovery and development

Balancing continuous discovery and development using Parallel Track Development

Who should attend? (All key members of your team, that’s who)
This workshop isn’t just for product owners. One of the biggest misconceptions in Scrum is that the product owner is the “single ringable neck” solely responsible for building the right product. In fact, it takes a whole team focusing on product success. This workshop is ideal for:

Product managers, product owners, or producers

User experience practitioners

Engineers and testers

Scrum masters, agile coaches, and project managers

Business leaders

And anyone else on your team motivated by creating products your customers love

You should bring your team. Otherwise you’re just going to have to try to explain all this stuff to them when you get back to the office.

It won’t be boring
This workshop is fast-paced and collaborative. We’ll teach with a mixture of hand-drawing, slides, videos, storytelling and humor. You’ll get your hands dirty getting a taste of the many practices we teach.

Yes, you’ll receive Scrum Certification, and lots of other stuff…
This is a Scrum Certified Product Ownership course, and you’ll receive certification from the Scrum Alliance after attending the course.

You’ll also receive a workbook, quick reference guides, and access to electronic versions of all the resources used in class. And participants will receive a copy of Jeff Patton’s User Story Mapping, and Jeff Gothelf’s Lean UX and new Sense & Respond.

Lean UX 2nd Edition

Mahalia Presented by Move Forward Music ALL AGES @ SOB's 204 Varick St New York, NY 10014 United States
Apr 24 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Mahalia Presented by Move Forward Music ALL AGES @ SOB's 204 Varick St New York, NY 10014 United States | | |

An intimate evening with Mahalia, at the legendary home of music, SOB’s, presented by Move Forward Music.
About this Event
Leicester native Mahalia enjoyed an incredible 2018, quickly becoming one of the year’s most exciting UK female artists. She rode fast in her own lane, winning YouTube’s inaugural ‘One To Watch’ list and soon after became the only musician to be tipped for the BRIT’s Critics Choice Award and the BBC Sound Poll shortlists in the same year. Mahalia found success via her uncompromising, buoyant songs such as ‘One Night Only’, a single which was taken from her hotly acclaimed 2018 EP ‘Seasons’.

Following the release, Mahalia graced the Berlin online platform COLORS, where her performance of ‘Sober’ went viral and has since accumulated over 24 million views!

At 12 years old –the age most of us are aimlessly riding bikes or trying to avoid homework –Mahalia was cradling her guitar and penning love songs. With her entrancing, soulful tones, wise-yet-relatable wordplay and intuitive sense of melody, it quickly became clear that she had an innate musicality and that she’d be doing this for the rest of her life. In the time since she first picked up that guitar she’s dropped a scattering of releases –from 2012’s indie-flecked acoustic dream ‘Head Space’ to 2015’s gorgeously understated 4-track EP ‘Never Change’–and 2016’s genre-flipping mixtape ‘Diary of Me’. But for Mahalia, it feels as if she’s just getting started.

Art World Conference is a business and financial literacy conference that includes panel discussions, conversations, and in-depth sessions addressing many of the opportunities and challenges faced by visual artists and arts professionals who work closely with artists.

The emphasis of all programming is on personal development and empowerment.

Old School Vs New School Brunch & Day Party - Mother's Day Edition by The Alumni Group @ MIST Harlem 46 West 116th Street New York, NY 10026 United States | | |

Remember when MTV actually played music videos instead of all those ratchet reality TV shows? At one time, music videos were a really BIG DEAL! C’mon… you know you used to race home after school to watch The Box (“Music Television You Control”), and Video Soul or Rap City on BET. If you were in NYC back then, you remember how we lived for Video Music Box with Ralph McDaniels and The Bobby Simmon’s show. But no matter where you grew up, chances are that at some point you spent time watching music videos – imitating the dance moves, learning the lyrics, and copy the fashion trends… Man, those were the days! Well, The Alumni Group is taking you on a trip down memory lane at our Video Music Brunch. Along with our delicious brunch food specials, we’ll not only be spinning the classics, we’ll also be showing off the visuals that go along with them. Enjoy our dope music video playlist, featuring your old school favorites as well as the new-new hotness, as you sip on unlimited brunch cocktails. The song says that “videos killed the radio star”, but at this brunch we’ll celebrate the role videos have played in shaping our culture over the years. Trust us, you won’t want to miss this visual, audio, culinary experience!
