Wild Ark is a company that is working hard at making sure the environment is as diverse as possible. Biodiversity is more than just a buzz word when it comes to the environment. There is a very real need to make sure as many animals as possible are thriving. There need to be as many environments thriving as well. Only if we can rebuilt what has been damaged, in a variety of ways, will the world really be able to have a shot at bouncing back.

 

That is why the CEO of Wild Ark has made biodiversity such a central focus of his mission. Mark Hutchinson isn’t someone who just enjoys the great outdoors and what the great outdoors can offer. He understands what makes the great outdoors so great because he’s spent a good portion of his adult life getting to know it.

 

Hutchinson has spent a year in Australia working as a Jackaroo. For those not familiar with Australian lingo, that basically means he worked as a ranch hand, though that particular position has a bit more of the great outdoors than ranch hands have in this country.

Hutchinson spent a great majority of his adult life camping and fishing and living outdoors, looking up at the sky. At the tend age of 22 he set up his own outdoor travel company that allowed him to show off his talents and his knowledge to people who wanted to be able to get to areas of the world they had never been before. After a brief stint in the corporate world, the still young businessman decided it was time to find a way to reconnect with nature and Wild Ark was born.

Bumble: The Dating App That Puts Women First

     In the next few minutes, we are going to explore the dating app Bumble, it’s creator and CEO Whitney Wolfe, and the departure from traditional dating apps and sites.

In a society where men are expected to make the first move when it comes to dating, Bumble flips this gender expectation and puts the initial contact in the hands of women. Similar to a Sadie Hawkins (girls choice) dance where the responsibility of inviting a boy to the event lies solely with the girls, Bumble at first appears like many dating apps swiping left to move on or right in an attempt to make a connection, but with Bumble the female always makes the first move and she has one day to say something and make a connection before it’s gone.

According to the Bumble FAQ ‘Men can’t start a conversation with the female users but they can show special interest in a match by extending just one per day to remain in the queue for an additional 24 hours’.

Whitney Wolfe was born in 1990 in Salt Lake City, Utah and attended Southern Methodist College. In addition to being the founder and CEO of Bumble, Wolfe has also been involved with launching Cardify, Tinder, and has worked orphanages while traveling in southeast Asia. She now resides in Austin, Texas.

So is Bumble an empowering app for single women or just a dating site within a more specific niche similar to Christian dating or Farmers Only dating? Either way, Bumble takes a step forward in making women feel safer online and filtering out a lot of unwanted advances.

The Bumble app is currently available on the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, and they are planning a Windows phone version as well.
