Doe Deere and the Fabulous Lime Crime

When it comes to being bold and beautiful, Doe Deere knows all about it. Not only is she confident and self-expressive, but she exudes that “I don’t care” attitude- the one we all hope to possess one day. Doe Deere is the creator of the popular makeup brand called Lime Crime. The line features bold, bright, metallic, glittery, matte, incredible colors. Basically, whatever you can dream up in your head, Doe’s thought of it. Her creativity really shines through her brand and speaks to so many people who want to express themselves through color as well.

 

Doe Deere is the perfect example of a woman who started at the bottom. She only began living in the United States as a teenager, where she even took a stab at her entrepreneurial skills by selling hand drawn temporary tattoos. Formally a musician, this woman has always been one of many creative talents and passions. From a small child, she adored makeup and anything in bright hues. Everything about it- the process, the colors, the application. She eventually decided that the cosmetics industry needed a bit more sass, and that is where Lime Crime came to be.

 

When the “in” trend was au natural, Doe Deere made her line outshine the rest with unique, crazy, incredibly bold colors that people just couldn’t resist. Overnight success would be an understatement. Not to mention, the impact that Doe had on her fans or “Unicorns.” This “Queen of her Unicorns” was expressing herself and her brand all over social media and encouraging other to express themselves through color as well.

 

Doe Deere’s confidence is so contagious, and her look is the envy of many. She goes bold in almost every aspect-hair, makeup, clothing and inspires others to be free to be themselves. She is a force to be reckoned with and a true business idol. Her line of Lime Crime cosmetics can be found in various stores and on her website, and you can get to know the fabulous Doe through her Instagram.

America’s Toughest Sheriff Brought Down

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, labeled as “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” had both Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin arrested ten years ago for allegedly disclosing facts about a grand-jury investigation.

The day of their arrest, Lacey and Larkin published a story in the Phoenix New Times regarding the grand-jury probe. Arpaio set these men up because of their constant coverage of his shameful crimes that culminated back to his 1992 election to office.

The incident is a literal recap of Arpaio’s actions while in office, from his notorious Tent City to the number of people who died in his jail cells in addition to the shackling of pregnant moms to their beds during deliveries and many other extralegal actions he ordered his deputies to perform.

His most significant crusade was against the two newspapermen because of his adamant dislike regarding issues of the Latinos and their rights throughout his jurisdiction.

The shocking arrest of Lacey and Larkin was clearly in violation of their First Amendment rights. The 1st Amendment states that there is no law against the freedom of speech or the press. Within five years, the careers of both men ended when paid a 3.75 million dollar settlement by the Maricopa County for the wrongful arrests. Lacey and Larkin used the money for the Frontera Fund, which is a nonprofit organization to support the rights of immigrants and migrants.

Jim Larkin is native to Phoenix, Arizona and studied at the Arizona State University. He dropped out in 1972 when he met up with Michael Lacey to work on the Phoenix New Times. The publication was a culmination of student antiwar protests. Michael Lacey Lived in Newark, N.J. until he moved west in the late 1960s, at which time he also attended the Arizona State University, dropping out in 1970.

Lacey published the Phoenix New Times along with a couple of other students as a result of ultra-conservative media coverage of campus issues. Lacey was the executive editor of the New Times with Larkin as head of the advertising aspect of the publication.

The two men worked hard to create the feisty, weekly periodical, covering a wide variety of political and social issues. Their careers were put on hold when arrested on October 18, 2007, initiated by anti-immigrant sheriff Arpaio of Maricopa County.

Arpaio was elected to the role of sheriff, service from 1993 to 2016, being labeled as “America’s Toughest Sheriff” due to a long history criminal actions in his jurisdiction. Arpaio, a former law enforcement officer, had been re-elected six times as sheriff until subsequently losing.

He announced that he would run for the Senate of Arizona. Eighty-five-year-old Republican Arpaio is an ally of Trump, and the report is that the President pardoned him after being proven guilty of criminal contempt. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

He denied a judge’s court order to cease traffic patrols targeting immigrants. Opponents of the former sheriff thought he would finally be made accountable for his crimes, but such was not the case.

Arpaio was an avid supporter of Trump, and that turned out to be a smart move on his part since the pardon by the President kept him out of jail. He will not face any consequences for his actions. Lacey and Larkin had much to say about this decade-long issue with the former sheriff, as one might expect!

A Deep Dive into Forex with Jordan Lindsey

We define gambling as taking a risk in the hope of a desired result. Therefore all forms of trading are a form of gambling. Speculating in the forex market is not an exception. However, there is a significant difference between games of chance and forex trading.

Not surprisingly, most casino games give the house an edge of anywhere from 1 percent as in blackjack, to 29 percent in the case of keno. The point is that if you enjoy Las Vegas long enough, you will be the one paying to light “The Strip.” The house always wins.

In contrast to the forex market, on the other hand, there is no house. In fact, when you become adept at reading the market you can play the role of the house. All you need is an edge or what experienced traders like Jordan Lindsey commonly referred to as “finding value” in the parlance of the forex trading world.

When Mr. Jordan Lindsey, founder of JCL Capital, proposes that 7 percent returns can be attained month after month, he is telling traders that they have an edge. Value is everywhere in the forex market. It is particularly apparent looking at price charts.

Concepts such as support and resistance represent one example of finding paths to value. For instance, knowing that price action tends to respect a return to previous levels of support and resistance (70 percent of the time when viewed in the one-hour time frame), we can exploit the market’s tendency to surrender pips to us. In fact, this situation represents a 30 percent edge in the trader’s favor.

Once identified, traders should always exploit their edge. There will be times when it does not pan out, and such “high-probability” trades lose money. However, once you have become knowledgeable about chart patterns and the statistic regarding their performance, you will be on the precipice of unlocking the vault.

Jordan Lindsey has said that achievable forex trading goals if adhered to, in the fullness of time can lead to multi-million Dollar success. The rungs in the ladder of a trader’s success consist of diligence and the ability to identify value when it presents itself.

Elysium Creates a Health Supplement That Maintains NAD+

Elysium Health, a consumer science company, is seeking to apply advances in science and technology into clinically validated products that work. Its first product is called Basis. Basis is a supplement that is clinically proven to increase levels of NAD+ in our cells.

Increasing NAD+ levels in humans works to support cellular well-being. NAD+ is a key coenzyme in our cells that is responsible for several key functions like DNA protection and circadian rhythms. But NAD+ levels decline as we age. Basis works to maintain higher levels of the coenzyme and support our cellular functions as a result.

Basis is a product intended for all healthy adults. Basis is also vegetarian, vegan, nut- and gluten-free, adhering to most dietary needs.

Elysium Health was founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente in 2014. He has conducted significant research on the genetic and molecular causes of aging during his career as the director of The Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT.

Basis is designed for long-term use and is third-party tested for quality. By taking two capsules of Basis daily you can begin to support your cellular health today.

Elysium Health sells Basis on its website. The supplement is available for individual purchase for $60. Each individual jar of Basis contains 60 capsules, which is enough for 30-days of the recommended dose of the supplement. Monthly subscriptions to the supplement decrease its cost to $40-50 per month depending on the length of the subscription.

Elysium Health is looking to increase the number of people it helps and is currently in the process of developing new products that focus on circadian rhythms, skin health, muscle function, and cognitive health. These are in various stages of pre-clinical and clinical trials.

Waiakea Water Benefits the Body, Environment, and Less Fortunate

Ryan Emmons founded Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water in 2012. Since then, the 27-year-old  has been a man on multiple missions. For Ryan selling water is a means to ends nobler than just turning a profit.

Protecting the Environment

Four hundred thousand pounds of plastic are among the pollutants that enter the world’s oceans every year. Waiakea bottles are fully recyclable and degrade completely in 15 years versus 1,000 years for traditional plastic bottles. An additive used during the production process is responsible for Waiakea bottles breaking down 97% sooner than other plastic bottles.

Improving the Human Condition

Appropriately, Waiakea has teamed up with the charity Pump Aid. The objective is to bring potable water to impoverished and developing countries like Malawi, Africa. Each liter of Waiakea that is sold equals a week’s worth of clean water for the poorest of the poor.

The Benefits of Alkaline Water

Waiakea (“broad waters” in Hawaiian) is alkaline. On the pH Scale water with a hydrogen ion concentration of 0-14 is alkaline. Waiakea’s pH falls in the middle of that scale at 7.8 to 8.8% alkalinity.

Because alkaline water is a base it neutralizes acid in the body offering a variety of benefits.

  • Contols acid reflux
  • Improves blood oxygenation
  • Muscle and joint lubrication
  • Improves metabolism
  • Promotes colon health
  • Improves skin health

Add to that, boosting the immune system, fostering skeletal health, fighting fat, and increasing energy levels.

Additional Healthful Benefits

The source of Waiakea is the snow and rain run-off from the Mauna Loa Volcano meaning Waiakea uses a truly unique filtration system. On its journey through 14,000 feet of volcanic rock Waiakea is infused with essential minerals.

Calcium- promotes bone health and has neurological benefits. It also assists muscle function and blood clotting.

Magnesium- plays a key role in 600 plus bodily biochemical reactions.

Potassium- essential to the proper functioning of organs, especially the heart. Potassium is also vital to cell and tissue health.

How Louis Chenevert Took UTC into the Stratosphere

United Technologies Corporation is now a force to be reckoned with and is highly regarded all throughout the world. While the company was already a significant entity before his arrival, once Louis Chenevert ascended to the position of Chief Executive Officer, an incredible emphasis on forward-thought, as well as investing in the people who make the company go, increased exponentially, and today, this school of thought lives on. Louis Chenevert received his degree from HEC Montreal, the business school of the University of Montreal, and later worked for General Motors, where he stayed for 14 years before joining Pratt & Whitney. After only six years with Pratt & Whitney, Louis Chenevert would become its President, and by 2006, he was the Chief Executive Officer of United Technologies Corporation.

When Louis Chenevert arrived at United Technologies Corporation, he brought with him a school of thought that championed innovation, while also investing in his own employees. While he was well aware of the importance of creating an environment that produced immediate results in the short-term, he also focused on the overall trajectory of the company in order to ensure that it would continue to experience success for the foreseeable future.

One of Louis Chenevert’s greatest achievements was bringing with him an avant-garde GTF engine, which was a holdover from his time with Pratt & Whitney Canada. This new engine soon became the primary focus of United Technologies Corporation, and after investing upwards of $10 billion in its development produced an engine that would change the course of travel throughout the globe. The GTF engine was able to use sixteen percent less fuel while cutting hazardous emissions by fifty percent. Today, over fourteen major airlines utilize the GTF engine, and it is available in over 70 different aircrafts. Since his retirement, the company that Louis Chenevert helped to bring to worldwide prominence has continued its winning ways, and due to the number of successes that he has acquired on his resume, he has received a myriad of awards and recognition; recently being named the “Person of the Year” by the prestigious Aviation Week and Space Technology magazine.

Jeunesse Global Sees Trajectory of Fantastic Growth

When serial entrepreneurs Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis decided to retire for the third and final time, they had convinced themselves that, this time, it would be different. But it didn’t take long for the couple to begin feeling the restlessness that comes with being idle for hours each day.

Both Ray and Lewis had been responsible for building dozens of successful businesses over the course of their lives, many of which had been in the health and beauty industry. The couple had long been financially successful, having multiple homes and not needing the money that employment provides.

Yet they still were not able to steer themselves away from the siren call of the business world. At first, their most recent foray into direct marketing began as just a small operation run out of their garage. But before long, the competitive nature of the couple began taking hold. Jeunesse Global was born.

Today, Jeunesse Global is one of the most rapidly expanding direct marketers of health and beauty supplies anywhere in the world. With a huge presence in East Asia, the company has benefited greatly from the increased economic freedom that has begun to take hold in that region of the world. With billions of potential clients across China alone, Jeunesse has not seen the end of its growth.

The company has a portfolio of over a dozen products. Many of these are exclusive to Jeunesse Global, not being available for purchase anywhere except from the company’s certified distributors. The company also represents one of the best business opportunities for those living outside of the developed world. Jeunesse reports that many of its independent business owners are able to make wages that would even be considered excellent by Western standards. Some of its distributors are able to make in excess of six figures per year, even in countries where the average yearly wage is less than most Americans make in a week.

On top of this, Jeunesse has developed one of the best product lines in the business, with patented products that are available exclusively through the company.

Jeff Yastine: He’s known the investment world longer than you

Jeff Yastine wrote an article a few days ago on Medium.Com about the apparent failure of Amazon’s merger with Whole Foods. In the article, he notes that Amazon’s mission and methods are different than that of Whole Foods, and the prioritization of Amazon’s methods (high bulk, low cost, low innovation) could cause Whole Foods to lose market share. Yastine points out that the promised lowering of food prices has not occurred, produce has deteriorated in quality, and Amazon’s stock dropped in December where Wal-Mart’s rose steadily. Yastine predicted in June 2017 that the merger would not produce a profit, and he believes that the results are shaping up as he expected. Follow Jeff Yastine at stocktwits.com

Jeff Yastine has been a stock market investor and financial journalist for two decades. In addition to acting as an editor for Total Wealth Magazine and Banyan Hill Publishing, he was an anchor at PBS Nightly Business Report from 1994 to 2010. In that two decades, he was able to foresee the dotcom bubble and the collapse of the housing market. Jeff Yastine reported across a wide variety of investment sectors, and even branched out into reporting on the state of America’s crumbling infrastructure.

His current articles for Medium.com reflect the breadth of his knowledge on investment sectors, covering such topics as food, retail, technology, foreign investment, and cybersecurity. The greater portion of his recent articles are about cybersecurity, partly because he feels that it is a sector for substantial growth, and partly because he feels that a lack of security puts American business at risk. In his article “Hack Attacks are Corporate America’s Worst Nightmare”, he notes that a big American business seems to be hacked every week, and foresees a substantial rise in Cybersecurity profits as businesses realize they need to protect their data. He makes the same point in his article about the recent attack on the central bank of Bangladesh: as more hacks happen, the Cybersecurity industry will only grow. Most of his articles about cybersecurity combine the fear of being hacked with his optimism for the growth of the Cybersecurity industry.
