Doe Deere- Article Recap

Doe Deere, CEO and founder of the makeup brand Lime Crime, is the self described “queen of unicorns” and she more than looks the part. Her hair color is an every changing array of shades from pale pink to bold bright blue. Her makeup is bold, and artistic. Doe Deere rocks these colors like she was born wearing them. The look she creates manages to be polished, as well as all about fun and fantasy.

 

Lime Crime specializes in bright, bold makeup colors with a healthy dose of glitter. Products include their Diamond Crusher Lip Topper, which is exactly what it sounds like: the boldest, most glittery lip color you have ever laid eyes on. Their Velvetine Liquid Metallic Lip Color has the soft, matte finish of rose petals. The colors range from the dusty lavender mercury, to the bold golden xenon. In addition to being eye catching and unique, Lime Crime’s products are 100% vegan and cruelty free.

 

Doe Deere moved to the US from Russia when she was seventeen. She lived in New York City from 1998 to 2012. While she lived in New York she worked as a musician. She met her husband, and business partner when they were in a band together during that time. She credits their unique ability to collaborate with the time they spent playing music together.

 

In 2008, when makeup trends were all natural, natural, and more natural Doe Deere went in search of something a little bolder, and more fun. When she discovered that her only options seemed to be different shades of beige lip gloss she started making her own makeup. She was surprised and how much other women gravitated toward her candy colored creations. That’s when she realized that a makeup brand specializes in exciting, fantastic colors could be a viable option and Lime Crime was born.

 

Doe Deere also has a background in fashion that has informed her understanding of makeup and hair. She studied fashion design at FIT in New York City, and while she was there she realized that makeup, hair, and clothing are all interrelated parts of creating a fashion statement. Many women view makeup as something that should be invisible, but Doe Deere views makeup as a vehicle for self expression. Her hope is that the women who buy Lime Crime are able to use the bold, unexpected colors to express themselves more fully.

George Soros Hires Wall-Street Hotshot to Oversee His Fund

One of the richest men on the planet and top ranked hedge fund billionaire, George Soros has made a major announcement regarding his fund management. According to a Forbes magazine article dated February 1 2017, Soros has named Dawn Fitzpatrick, the new Chief Investment Officer of Soros Fund Management (SFM), and a large family investment office that continues to operate as a hedge fund. Soros made the calculated decision to close his prominent hedge fund a few years ago, but the fund is still tasked with overseeing Soro’s $30 billion fund targeted at philanthropy, humanitarian and developmental causes. The areas of focus include Policy Reform, Democratic Ideals, Education, Economic Development and Humanitarian Assistance.

Prior to taking up the new position, Fitzpatrick held a senior position at the Swiss based hedge fund and multi-asset investment group UBS, where she served in the asset management unit. The position of Chief Investment Officer at SFM fell vacant after one of Soros staunchest confidants, Ted Burdick stepped down in 2016 after a few months in office. The position has had 6 officers since 2000. Burdick left the high ranking post in 2015 to establish Key Square Group, a private hedge fund. It is important to note that in spite of changes in the management and setup of the fund, Soros 86, maintains an active role in decision making. He regularly weighs in on important matters, including investment strategies and trading decisions.

Soros strongly believes in the promotion of democratic ideals and continues to support the Democratic Party and its causes. During the just concluded US general elections, Soros made his presence known when he announced a huge donation to support Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid and that of other democrats downstream. According to an excerpt published on Politico on July 27 2016, Soros made the comeback with a hefty $25 million donation after staying out of big money campaign for some time. The last time Soros made such a huge contribution was in 2004, when he donated an unprecedented $27 million to support the campaign to elect John Kerry as president against George Bush.

Although George Soros also backed the candidacy of Barrack Obama over that of Hillary Clinton during the 2008 presidential primaries, he felt Obama was not as aggressive in pursuing liberal causes as he had anticipated. In the recent installment, some of the other liberal groups that benefitted from Soros largesse during the election cycle included American Bridge 21st Century ($2 million); Priorities USA Action ($7 million) and Immigrant Voters, which received $5 million. Priorities USA Action is a Super PAC that supported Hillary Clinton election, while America Bridge 21st Century is an opposition Super PAC that has focused its attention on fighting Trump, the Republican candidates and their policies.

Securus Technologies Fights Prison Contraband Violations

Technology is a wonderful thing. It allows for us as a people to live a more comfortable life style, a safer life style, a more productive life style. Technology, to a large degree, is what has moved mankind forward throughout history. With that being said, technology can, like anything else, be perverted into a tool that can harm and even destroy our day to day living. Securus has branded an expertise that when used can in fact aide in the impeding of ill-used technology.

 

To quote one article, “Cell phone accessibility has become a serious problem for prisons — in addition to the crimes that inmates are known to commit over the phone.”, alerts us that there is an almost unfettered use of cell phones in the current prison system. These phones are smuggled in either through friends, family, or fellow inmates, and used to perform tasks such as update Facebook pages, call gang members, call other inmates in different facilities , discuss court strategy with potential witnesses. All of this is done under the supervision of an overworked prison security staff who average one guard per 128 prisoners. It would seem to be an insurmountable problem that has gotten out of control. Until now.

 

Securus Technologies offers to all of its clients the LBS technology (Location Based Services) which allows for the monitoring of cell phone location and usage activity. The facilities gain such capabilities as discovering when a cell phone is being used inside the facility and where, as well as the location of the connected cell phone as well as its geographical area. Allows the facility to receive alerts when a call is made to an area that has become a point of interest regarding an inmate. As an example, if an inmate calls a known associates residence. In addition, the technology is not reliant upon smart phone GPS being active since most inmates turn off that capability to escape detection.

 

The technology is sound and is based on the close working of Securus and the local cell phone providers to monitor the end points from the moment of initialization until termination of the communication. Geographical area, time, and duration, are just some of the data being collected that can later be analyzed and used in court if necessary.

 

Securus Technologies has always been a leader in bleeding edge monitoring systems. The LBS monitoring adds another tool in the safe supervising of your facilities population.


Tammy Mazzocco Sells Residential Properties In Pickerington, Ohio

At the beginning of her real estate career, Tammy Mazzocco was an office secretary for various real estate firms in Central Ohio. She learned a lot about the administrative part of the business during that ten-year period, but in 1999 she decided to get into the sales end of the business, primarily because she had seen the income potential for herself, that can be found on her about.me page.

Tammy joined the Judy Gang Team with RE/MAX in the Pickerington, Ohio area which also encompassed the four-county area around Pickerington. Today she enjoys a thriving real estate practice that has enabled her to help hundreds of families to find the home of their dreams in the area.  Read more: https://www.crunchbase.com/person/tammy-mazzocco#/entity

Tammy has learned that success is not an accidental event and that to get it and maintain it one has to devote time and energy and work at it. She arrives at her office early and gets the office duties of paperwork, emails, and other similar duties out of the way. She then gets on the phone to schedule appointments to show houses to prospective buyers.

Most of Tammy’s new business comes from referrals and repeat business, which amounts to about an 85 percent mix. She likes some of the new sources of new customers such as the leads that come from real estate sites like Zillow and Realtor.com, as these leads are usually live on the phone and consist of people who are actively looking to see some homes.

When asked just how she views herself today, Mazzocco replied that she doesn’t take herself too seriously, but refuses to live with any fear of failure and that she doesn’t settle for mediocre results.

The one trait where she focuses with an ironclad determination is to treat clients’ in the same way as she would prefer to be treated herself. This is especially true when it comes to the clients’ time and finances. People sense when you have their best interest at heart, and they will want to do business with you because of that. It is surprising how many sales and service people just don’t care, and they and their clients suffer because of it.

Tammy takes her work a day at a time, and she knows what brings the results. She has seen fellow real estate agents get a big sale, and sometimes it nearly ruins them because they get lazy. That is why having a routine and sticking to it is what brings results that last through any financial situation.

Why First Impressions Are Very Important

When it comes to businesses and careers, the best chance that one has is in the first impression that he makes on everyone. This is one of the most important principles to business and career success. The same can be said for online reputation. It is important for one to make sure that his online reputation is in good condition so that he can actually make a lot of progress towards his career goals. When one has a good online reputation, then he is going to have an easier time making a good first impression. One thing that is certain is that a lot of people don’t have time to look past their first impressions.

One of the best things a business owner can do is make sure that he is not only making a good first impression, but that he is also making an first impression that represents who he is. One thing that is not good is if one gets others to like and trust him for the wrong reasons. The worst thing he can do is get people to think that he is something that he really is not. This can cause a lot of trouble for the user.

Fortunately, the best thing one can do is make sure that he is getting the right message and image across to his potential customers so that they will know who they are doing business with. One thing that customers and audiences want is to do business with someone that is real. Even in the case that other traits are not really liked, if one shows that he is honest, then that shows that he is trustworthy. Fortunately, one can do a ton of things that can influence the first impression that he gives to people when they first discover him and his business.
