UC Davis provides college students cash to not journey throughout spring break

Students staying in Davis can apply for a $ 75 scholarship to be spent on-site.

March 9, 2021, 9:47 p.m.

5 min read

Since universities try to keep students on campus during the spring break, an institution provides a financial incentive.

The University of California at Davis is granting $ 75 to students staying in the northern California university town during the spring break later this month.

“UC Davis urges all members of the university community to avoid all unnecessary travel during the spring break,” wrote Chancellor Gary May in one Update for the school community last week that highlighted the partnership between the city and campus.

In this file photo dated February 28, 2020, students in Davis, California, pedal past Kearney Hall on the UC Davis campus, where a student lived who has shown symptoms of COVID-19.

The first 750 students to qualify will receive the $ 75 scholarship redeemable at select Davis companies during the school’s spring break, March 22-26.

Applicants must be currently registered UC Davis students living in Davis full-time. You must also stay in town throughout the spring break and have a scheduled COVID-19 test during this.

Students have until Wednesday, 5:00 p.m. PST to apply for the scholarship.

The response so far has been “overwhelmingly positive,” UC Davis spokeswoman Melissa Blouin told ABC News. The school will have more information on how many students applied after the deadline, she said.

There are approximately 5,900 students on campus.

UC Davis students and staff are urged to avoid all non-essential travel in general. For those planning to travel during the spring break, the school has recommended getting tested for COVID-19 every three to four days for the two weeks prior to their day of departure and after they return. Students leaving the state would be required to quarantine for 10 days upon their return, as per state guidelines.

“It is vital that asymptomatic students, especially those who have traveled, are tested regularly.” School officials said.

The “staycation” incentive comes a few weeks after Yolo County, where UC Davis is located, transitioned to the less restrictive “red tier” of the state’s coronavirus reopening plan, allowing some non-essential businesses to reopen with changes.

Some schools have canceled the spring break entirely this year to reduce the risk of the spread of COVID-19 on their campus and the surrounding community.

ON study last year The spread of COVID-19 supports concerns about the trip. Looking at GPS smartphone data from more than 7 million US college students, a June study Ball State University and Vanderbilt University found that spring break travel may have helped fuel the spread of the coronavirus in March as the pandemic worsened in the US.

How Black-owned magnificence manufacturers break billion-dollar obstacles

Mahisha Dellinger, Gründerin der Haarpflegelinie Curls, startete ihre Schönheitsmarke im Jahr 2002 und sagte zu dieser Zeit: “Trotz großer persönlicher Kredite konnte ich keinen Kredit für kleine Unternehmen bekommen, um mein Leben zu retten”, sagt sie.

Locken Beauty Brands

Mahisha Dellinger fühlte sich von ihrer Erfahrung als Marketingmanagerin in Corporate America entrechtet, als sie beschloss, ihre persönlichen Ersparnisse zu riskieren, um Unternehmerin zu werden. Sie begann ihre Haarpflegelinie Locken im Jahr 2002 nach dem Kampf um natürliche Optionen in den Regalen zu finden. Dellinger hatte auch Schwierigkeiten, eine Finanzierung zu finden. Am Ende startete sie Curls mit 30.000 US-Dollar an persönlichen Ersparnissen.

“Trotz großer persönlicher Kredite konnte ich keinen Kredit für kleine Unternehmen bekommen, um mein Leben zu retten”, sagte sie. “Das ist eine Herausforderung, die Frauen mit Farbe und Menschen mit Farbe noch heute erleben.”

Schwarze Unternehmer beginnen mit durchschnittlich 35.000 US-Dollar Kapital im Vergleich zu 107.000 US-Dollar für ihre weißen Kollegen McKinsey Bericht. Der mangelnde Zugang zu Kapital belastet langfristig auch die schwarzen Unternehmer. Der Zustand des schwarzen Unternehmertums in Amerika Ein Bericht der Black Caucus Foundation des Kongresses aus dem Jahr 2019 ergab, dass schwarze Unternehmer fast dreimal häufiger negative Auswirkungen auf ihre Gewinne haben, da sie keinen Zugang zu Kapital haben.

Trotz der Herausforderungen gelang es Dellinger. Die Marke Curls ist jetzt landesweit in den Verkaufsregalen erhältlich, darunter Walmart, Target, CVS und Kroger sowie bei Amazon. Obwohl Dellinger keine Verkaufszahlen bekannt gab, verzeichnete Curls jedes Jahr ein Wachstum.

“Ich wollte unbedingt die Kontrolle zurückerobern”, sagt Dellinger. “Unternehmer zu werden und mein Schicksal zu besitzen, war meine Gelegenheit, diese Erzählung zu ändern.”

Selbstfinanzierender Erfolg

Ihr Erfolg wird durch ein wachsendes Peer-Netzwerk von schwarzen Unternehmern im Schönheitssektor ergänzt, die die Finanzierungsherausforderungen bewältigen, um einen milliardenschweren schwarzen Verbrauchermarkt zu erreichen, der in der Vergangenheit von Einzelhändlern unterversorgt wurde. Laut Angaben der Afroamerikaner verfügen sie über eine Kaufkraft von 1,2 Billionen US-Dollar Nielsen Allein die Schwarzhaarpflegeindustrie erwirtschaftet laut Wesen.

Persönliche Finanzierung ist auch, wie Melissa Butler, Gründerin und CEO von Die LippenstangeWie Dellinger startete sie die Kosmetikmarke mit rund 30.000 US-Dollar ihrer persönlichen Ersparnisse, angetrieben von der Frustration über eine Schönheitsindustrie, die sich auf einen einzigartigen Archetyp konzentrierte. In den ersten drei Jahren stellte Butler jedes einzelne Produkt von Hand her.

“Mit jedem Cent, den wir verdient haben, haben wir wieder in das Geschäft investiert”, sagte Butler (Dellinger tat dasselbe). “In den ersten Jahren habe ich mich selbst, meinen Kreativdirektor und Geschäftspartner, nicht bezahlt”, fügte Butler hinzu.

“Sie dachten, dass die Schönheitsindustrie wirklich nur den Traditionsmarken wie den L’Oréal’s und Maybelline’s der Welt gehört”, sagt Melissa Butler, CEO von The Lip Bar, über die Schwierigkeiten, eine Fremdfinanzierung zu erhalten.

Bre’Ann White

Ein entscheidender Moment für beide Schönheitsunternehmer waren die Geschäfte mit Target. Curls konnte sich nach einem Käufer mit Target namens Dellinger im Jahr 2009 auf eine breitere Kundenbasis ausweiten. Der Käufer wollte das Angebot des Geschäfts überarbeiten, nachdem er bemerkte, dass chemische Relaxer nicht mehr aus den Regalen flogen, da immer mehr Frauen die natürliche Haarbewegung annahmen.

Curls wurde zusammen mit drei anderen Marken in 105 Zielgeschäften einem Test unterzogen, um zu sehen, wie sie sich entwickeln würden.

“Dieser eine Schuss gab uns tatsächlich die Möglichkeit, zu den anderen Einzelhändlern zu gehen”, sagte Dellinger. “Das hat den gesamten Geschäftsweg verändert.”

Butler sagte, ihr Vertrauen in die Suche nach Kapital sei erst gekommen, als The Lip Bar 2018 zu Target expandierte. Die Marke startete auf Target.com, bevor sie einen 44-Store-Test durchführte und dann in Hunderte von Stores expandierte. Obwohl The Lip Bar bei einem der größten Einzelhändler des Landes verkauft wurde und wusste, dass ihr Unternehmen für Wachstumskapital bereit war, hatte es immer noch Schwierigkeiten, die Finanzierung zu sichern.

“Ein Teil davon ist, dass die Leute, die diese Schecks ausstellen, besonders zu dieser Zeit, wieder weiße Männer an der Spitze waren, die wiederum nicht der Endverbraucher des Produkts waren”, sagte Butler. “Sie dachten, dass die Schönheitsindustrie wirklich nur diesen Traditionsmarken wie den L’Oréal’s und Maybelline’s der Welt gehört.”

Sie konnte schließlich mit dem Geld sammeln New Voices Fund, ein Fonds, der von Richelieu Dennis, dem Gründer von Shea Feuchtigkeit, das sich auf Investitionen in farbige Frauen konzentriert und 2018 2 Millionen US-Dollar aus dem Fonds erhält.

Während der ehemaligen First Lady Michelle Obama tat sich mit der Marke für einen Lippenstift zusammen die Wählerregistrierung und die aktuelle First Lady Dr. Jill Biden zu fördern machte einen Besuch im Flagship-Store des Unternehmens Butler sagte im vergangenen Herbst in Detroit, dass eine Zielerinnerung die bedeutendste auf ihrem Erfolgspfad bleibt. “Meine Nichte war zu der Zeit in der 5. Klasse und sie ging in einen Target-Laden und sie sah mein Gesicht auf unserem Target-Display”, erinnerte sich Butler. “Also macht sie Fotos damit und für den Karrieretag sollten sie sich alle als jemand verkleiden und sie hat sich als ich verkleidet.”

Bootstrapping eines Unternehmens zum Risikokapital

CurlMix Die Gründer Kim und Tim Lewis haben die Marke zu Beginn selbst finanziert im Jahr 2015 als DIY-Abo-Box-Unternehmen für Verbraucher, um ihre eigenen Haarprodukte herzustellen. Im Jahr 2018 wurden sie jedoch zu einer Haarpflegelinie. Im selben Jahr konnten sie 25.000 US-Dollar an Finanzmitteln erhalten Backstage Capital, ein von Arlan Hamilton gegründeter Risikokapitalfonds, der sich auf Investitionen in Frauen, Farbige und LGBT-Gründer konzentriert.

“Für die meisten Leute, die ein Unternehmen gründen, sind 25.000 US-Dollar nicht viel”, sagte Kim Lewis. “Aber weil ich und Tim so viele Fehler gemacht hatten, wussten wir genau, wie wir sie ausgeben sollten. Diese 25.000 Dollar waren damals wahrscheinlich eher 100.000 Dollar für uns.”

Die CurlMix-Gründer Kim und Tim Lewis haben ihre Marke selbst finanziert, aber letztendlich Startkapital vom ehemaligen LinkedIn-CEO Jeff Weiner erhalten.

Nach der Finanzierung erzielte das Unternehmen 2018 einen Umsatz von 1 Million US-Dollar.

Der wachsende Erfolg führte dazu, dass die CurlMix-Gründer es auf “Shark Tank” schafften und schließlich ein Angebot von Robert Herjavec über 400.000 USD für 20% des Unternehmens ablehnten, was sich als kluge Entscheidung herausstellte.

“Nachdem wir auf ‘Shark Tank’ gegangen waren, erhielt ich einen Anruf vom CEO von LinkedIn und seinem Partner und sie sagten:” Können wir eine Million Dollar investieren? “Lewis erinnerte sich an das Gespräch mit dem ehemaligen CEO von LinkedIn, Jeff Weiner.

CurlMix sammelte in einer Startrunde 1,2 Millionen US-Dollar – das Start-up hat derzeit einen Wert von 12 Millionen US-Dollar – und erzielte 2019 einen Umsatz von 5,5 Millionen US-Dollar und 2020 einen Umsatz von 6 Millionen US-Dollar. Die Gründer sagten, die Pandemie habe sie veranlasst, ihre Werbeausgaben zurückzuziehen letztes Jahr, aber insgesamt blieb das Geschäft stabil.

Covid-19-Pandemie und Geschäftsrisiko

Gemäß McKinsey58% der Unternehmen in Schwarzbesitz waren finanziell gefährdet, verglichen mit 27% der Unternehmen in Weißbesitz vor der Pandemie, und die Pandemie hat diese Lücke vergrößert. Zwischen Februar und April 2020 schlossen 41% des Geschäfts in Schwarzbesitz. Die Auswirkungen der Pandemie auf schwarze Unternehmerinnen sind noch stärker. Ein Bericht vom Mai 2020 von digital unterteilt zeigt, dass 98% der schwarzen Unternehmerinnen angaben, dass ihr Geschäft direkt von Covid-19 betroffen ist, und 82% gaben an, Umsatzverluste zu verzeichnen.

Aktuelle Daten aus der CNBC | SurveyMonkey Small Business-Umfrage für das erste Quartal 2021 zeigen, dass die Sorgen um das Überleben unter den schwarzen Geschäftsinhabern weiterhin höher sind. Die CNBC-Umfrage ergab, dass die Befürchtungen einer dauerhaften Schließung bei schwarzen Kleinunternehmern hoch sind. 37% geben an, dass sie unter den gegenwärtigen Bedingungen mehr als ein Jahr überleben können, gegenüber 59% der weißen Kleinunternehmer und 55% der hispanischen Kleinunternehmer. Unternehmen in Schwarzbesitz, die nach einer vorübergehenden Schließung aufgrund der Pandemie noch nicht wiedereröffnet wurden (25%), stehen 8% der Kleinunternehmen in Weißbesitz gegenüber.

Ich denke, manchmal geraten wir in den Kopf und leiden unter einer Analyse-Lähmung, und manchmal muss man es einfach tun.

Undefined Beauty Gründer

Vor der Pandemie veranstaltete Curls mit seinen Curl-Botschaftern persönliche Veranstaltungen wie Messen und Pop-ups im ganzen Land, machte aber den Online-Pivot. “Sie haben angefangen, viele großartige, kreative digitale Events zu veranstalten, und das war ein schneller Dreh- und Angelpunkt, den mein Team sehr schnell und sehr erfolgreich gemacht hat”, sagte Dellinger, und sie fügte hinzu, dass die Verkäufe von Curls stark geblieben sind und die Nachfrage ist sogar höher als vor der Pandemie.

“Die Leute wollten mehr mit ihrer Haut anfangen und ihre Haare verwöhnen”, sagte Dellinger.

Die Lip Bar hat ihre Marketingstrategie geändert, um sich mehr auf Verbraucher zu konzentrieren, die zu Hause festsitzen, aber nicht so aussehen möchten, als würden sie in ihrem Bett arbeiten, und auf Online-Termine. Butler sagte, dass trotz mehr Menschen, die zu Hause bleiben, das Unternehmen von 2019 bis 2020 ein Umsatzwachstum von 80% verzeichnete.

Die Zukunft der Finanzierung schwarzer Unternehmer

Laut digitalundivided’s ProjectDiane Berichten zufolge haben 93 schwarze Frauen im Jahr 2020 eine Million US-Dollar an Investoren für ihr Geschäft erhalten, verglichen mit nur 38 schwarzen Frauen im Jahr 2018. Die Zahl der schwarzen Frauen, die Risikokapital erhalten, liegt weiterhin unter 1%.

Im letzten Jahr haben sich Einzelhändler verstärkt, um einige der Unterschiede zu beseitigen, mit denen Unternehmen und Marken in Schwarzbesitz konfrontiert sind. Einzelhändler wie Sephora und Macy’s haben sich bei der 15 Prozent Versprechen Erstellt von Aurora James, die mindestens 15% ihrer Regale für Unternehmen in Schwarzbesitz bereitstellt. Der Beauty-Händler Ulta gab kürzlich bekannt, dass er dies anstrebt Verdoppeln Sie die Anzahl der Marken in Schwarzbesitz in seinen Läden bis Ende 2021.

Schwarze Unternehmer brechen auch in einigen der neuesten Nischen des Verbrauchermarktes Barrieren.

Dorian Morris lancierte die Marke Beauty and Wellness Undefinierte Schönheit im Jahr 2018 nach dem Erkennen der Notwendigkeit einer Schönheitsmarke mit “Pflanzenmagie” wie CBD.

Dorian Morris ‘Wellnessmarke Undefined Beauty wurde als Teil der neuen Kategorie inklusive Schönheit von Nordstrom ausgewählt, die im vergangenen Oktober eingeführt wurde.

“Wellness hatte ein Gesicht und sie war dünn, wohlhabend, blond, weiß und wir alle verdienen Zugang zu Wellness. Bei Undefined geht es also wirklich darum, diese Erzählung zu ändern, Wellness zu demokratisieren und es auf unterhaltsame, frische Weise zu tun”, sagte sie.

Die Produkte von Undefined Beauty wurden als Teil von ausgewählt Nordstroms neue inklusive Schönheitskategorie im letzten Oktober gestartet.

“Ich möchte anderen Gründern gerne sagen, dass man manchmal von der Klippe springen und auf dem Weg nach unten Flügel bauen muss”, sagte Morris, der das Start-up selbst finanziert hat. “Ich denke, manchmal geraten wir in den Kopf und leiden unter einer Analyse-Lähmung. Manchmal muss man es einfach tun. Testen Sie die Nachfrage und drehen Sie sich dann entsprechend.”

Morris sagt, ein Teil des Grundes, warum sich ihr Geschäft immer noch selbst finanziert, ist der zusätzliche Druck, den sie als schwarze Unternehmerin empfindet, um sicherzustellen, dass ihr Produkt ein Erfolg ist, bevor sie nach externem Geld sucht.

“Ich wollte sicherstellen, dass dies tatsächlich Traktion hat und dass dies tatsächlich etwas sein wird, das erfolgreich sein kann”, sagte Morris. “Weil ich finde, wenn ich ein weißer Mann wäre, der Geld sammelt und mein Geschäft scheitert, würden sie sagen ‘Es ist okay, Chad, du wirst sie das nächste Mal bekommen.’ Aber eine schwarze Frau zu sein, wenn ich Geld gesammelt habe und es gescheitert ist, bedeutet das aus repräsentativer Sicht viel für andere schwarze Unternehmer, die hinter mir stehen. “

Morris plant, noch in diesem Jahr Spenden für Undefined Beauty zu sammeln.

Winter escapes: Take a break out of your quarantine routine | Leisure

Treat yourself to your creative self

On February 6th, Virginia Arcadia: The Natural Bridge in American Art opens at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, exploring the artistic heritage of this iconic natural wonder.

Featured artists include Frederic Church, David Johnson, Edward Hicks, and many others who depicted Virginia’s Natural Bridge, one of the most popular sites in 19th-century American landscape painting that, according to VMFA, was probably only surpassed by Niagara Falls.

Remember, this is an indoor activity and face covering is required. The VMFA uses a time card system to ensure removal.

The rock formation is more than 400 million years old and was gradually formed when the waters of Cedar Creek caused erosion, resulting in a large arch.

In 1774 Thomas Jefferson bought the property from King George III. As part of 150 hectares, and his family owned it seven years after his death.

If you’re feeling inspired to create your own rendition of the bridge after watching the show, Natural Bridge State Park is great for visitors of all ages. The natural wonder is just under three hours away. Once there, it is easy to reach via the Cedar Creek Trail, which leads under the 21 meter high limestone arch. There is more to discover there, as well as activities for children and self-guided nature tours.
