The Living Room Conference by Populus Coworking. A Free online conference with leading business speakers.

Three-time Grammy winning artist Kevin Olusola will be one of the many amazing guests at this live streaming event for Populus Coworking.

Like many small businesses, local startup Populus Coworking is struggling in a world of social distancing. Populus recently launched to gather people together and create a valuable community. Almost overnight, that entire business model disappeared. The momentum from seven months of rapid growth was no match for the Coronavirus economy.

Now unable to build community in a new 10,000 SF space, Founder Micah Yost quickly pivoted to find other value for small business owners. In just one week, Populus organized this virtual conference with leading names in music, business, and innovation. It's called the Living Room Conference. The entire event will be offered for free online this Friday, April 10th, starting at 11 AM CDT. Anyone is welcome to join on the Populus Coworking website or Facebook page.

Guests for the virtual conference include three-time Grammy award winner Kevin Olusola, Adobe Chief Product Officer Scott Belsky and Twitch Director of Creator Development, Marcus Graham. Additionally, author and speaker Todd Henry will join the conference as well as world-touring artist Roddy Chong. Several other experts will be present throughout the day.

After many conversations with Populus members and the community, Yost knew people needed hope. "Immediate solutions may be hard, but we can have hope in difficult times," said Yost. "This free, virtual, conference is intended to cast vision for entrepreneurs and creatives struggling with COVID-19."

All are welcome to attend this conference on April 10th. A suggested ticket donation of $49 can be made but is not required. All the details are on the Populus Coworking website at www.populus.co/conference.

Seoul unsure if North Korea will air World Cup qualifier

Jun 5, 2020

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Thursday it's unclear if North Korea will allow a live broadcast when it hosts the South's national soccer team for a World Cup qualifier in Pyongyang next Tuesday. Seoul's Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs, said the North has been ignoring South Korean calls for discussions on broadcasting the game live and allowing South Korean spectators to attend. "There has been no particular progress on the issues of (sending South Korean) cheering squads or providing broadcast coverage, so they won't be easy," since there's only a few days left until the game,...

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

Jun 5, 2020

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...

Chinese pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong Kong

Jun 5, 2020

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...

The Latest: Concerts canceled over Hong Kong airport protest

Jun 5, 2020

HONG KONG — The Latest on Hong Kong protests (all times local): 7 p.m. At least three concerts by overseas performers have been canceled in Hong Kong as protesters forced the city's airport to suspend operations for a second day. K-pop star Kang Daniel and Scottish band CHVRCHES both announced Tuesday that they are calling off upcoming events. American singer-songwriter Alec Benjamin canceled an upcoming concert late Monday. Kang's management office said the cancellation of a fan meeting scheduled for Sunday was because of safety concerns related to the protests, while CHVRCHES blamed "unforeseen circumstances." The airport protests are the...

China bans movies, actors from prominent Taiwan film awards

Jun 5, 2020

BEIJING — China said Wednesday it was banning Chinese movies and actors from participating in Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, one of the Asian film industry's most prestigious honors, as Beijing ramps up economic and political pressure on the island it claims as its own territory. The one-sentence announcement on the microblog of China Film News, a newspaper affiliated with government film regulator, gave no reason for the suspension, but it comes amid rising tensions over Taiwan's refusal to recognize being part of Chinese territory to eventually be brought under Beijing's rule. Even without the ban, Chinese artists might have found...
