Diamond Producers Association Appoints Managing Director for North America

The Diamond Producers Association, or DPA, has appointed Kristina Buckley Kayel as its North American managing director.
Buckley Kayel previously served as vice president of communications, North America for Van Cleef & Arpels. She has also held marketing and public relations roles at Bottega Veneta, Ferragamo and Baccarat.
Beginning her new role on Feb. 4, Buckley Kayel will be responsible for creating new marketing strategies that further the organization’s “Real is Rare” motto.
“Kristina’s experience in the fine jewelry sector, along with her comprehensive communications expertise, business acumen and creativity, gives her a unique industry perspective. We are excited to have her join the Diamond Producers Association and work with us to strengthen and build upon our mission in the United States,” DPA chief executive officer Jean-Marc Lieberherr said of the hire.
The DPA was founded in 2015 by seven of the world’s biggest diamond-mining organizations as an industry-saving measure. Lab-grown diamonds are on the rise and Millennials have proven averse to the diamond tradition — weary of their conflict-riddled past and high price tag. Thus, the mining companies sprung to action, looking to reingratiate themselves with younger generations.
The DPA’s ‘Real is Rare’ campaign was launched in 2016 with the goal to teach Millennials

Sports News in Brief: NBA Players Association Calls For Increased Referee Presence In High-Foul Areas

NEW YORK—Noting that the rampant problem has devastated rosters across the league, representatives from the National Basketball Players Association demanded an increased referee presence in high-foul areas, sources confirmed Friday. “Something has to be done to crack down on all the foul-ridden sections of the court, and the only solution is having more referees out there to combat this issue head-on,” said NBPA executive director Michele Roberts, adding that the league must immediately position additional officials in the low post area, which has become a hotspot for personal, technical, and flagrant fouls. “We can’t let this situation get any worse than it already is. We’ve seen too many instances of power forwards and shooting guards getting hacked out there, and there are certain parts of the paint where players are too scared to even drive. It’s absolutely unacceptable.” Roberts added that the NBA needs to implement …

Muscular Dystrophy Association Ends Jerry Lewis Telethon

LOS ANGELES, May 1 (Reuters) – The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) said Friday it will end its long-standing Labor Day telethon, aired on the ABC network, to focus on more digital fundraising efforts after the success of last year’s ALS Ice Bucket challenge.

The organization’s annual telethon, hosted by comedian Jerry Lewis from its inception in 1956, has seen its broadcast cut from its standard 21 and a half hours, last seen during Lewis’ final hosting stint in 2010, to just two hours last year.

“In the last few years, the show was adjusted to reflect changes in viewership and donor patterns,” MDA’s president and chief executive, Steven M. Derks, said.

“Last summer’s Ice Bucket Challenge once again affirmed for us that today’s families, donors and sponsors are looking to us for new, creative and organic ways to support our mission.

The MDA aims to raise awareness and improve the lives of people suffering from muscular dystrophy, a rare muscle-wasting genetic disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and other related diseases. So far, there is no cure.

The ALS Association, which funds research into ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, found a surprise fund-raising hit last year when it launched its Ice Bucket Challenge.

MDA’s telethon, most recently named “Show of Strength,” raised $ 56.9 million over the 2014 Labor Day weekend.

But the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a viral phenomenon that drew everyone from average citizens to celebrities nominating each other to donate to the cause or pour a bucket of ice over their heads, raised $ 100 million in just a month last year, the ALS Association said.

The MDA said it will be investing in digital and mobile platforms to engage with the public, and will continue sharing stories of families living with muscular dystrophy on Labor Day.
