Doe Deere – article recap

April 26, 2018 • fishcarolina

Beautiful and Bold Doe Deere exemplifies all that her cosmetic company Lime Crime embodies. She is bold and colorful. Her makeup line was created for people who are not introverts and are not afraid to stand out from the crowd. Lime Crime came on the beauty scene through a YouTube targeted ad campaign involving makeup demonstrations. Lime Crime was a big hit with beauty bloggers and gained a huge following. The beautifully packaged makeup and daring colors helped Lime Crime attain a cultlike following. The Lime Crime Cosmetics line branded itself as makeup for “Unicorns.” Unicorns being individuals who are not afraid to wear the bright colors, glitter, and metallic makeup that comprise the Lime Crime makeup.

 

Though recently Lime Crime Cosmetics has come under fire as some beauty bloggers have made allegations that Lime Crime is not vegan and cruelty-free, there is no denying that Lime Crime Cosmetics are well-made, attractive, and come in beautifully designed cases. The Venus Palette comes in an artistic case featuring the goddess Venus herself and the cute Pocket Candy Palettes were inspired by Polly Pocket. The Lime Crime Cosmetics line is characterized by daring colors, glamorous glitter, and futuristic metallics. Learn more: https://ideamensch.com/doe-deere/

 

Stylist Magazine recently interviewed Doe Deere prior to the London opening of the pop-up shop Feelunique x Lime Crime on the 27th of April. Where she shares her thoughts on her cosmetics line, the challenges of being an entrepreneur, and the importance of her commitment to a vegan and cruelty- free makeup line. Doe Deere believes that her creative and bold makeup line is what helped her attain a cult-like status. The daring colors, glitters, and metallics stand out among other makeup lines, and standing out is what gained Lime Crime a cult following. The importance of individuality is what defines her cosmetics line and what Doe believes helped her cosmetics line succeed.

 

On her road from a fashion designer to a cosmetics beauty brand creator, Doe Deere has made some mistakes along the way but believes that these were small hurdles. She learned from her mistakes, and as a result, her company became better. One decision that was not a mistake was her determination to create a cosmetics line and a company that was vegan and cruelty-free. Doe Deere went so far as to certify her cosmetics as vegan and cruelty-free by the animal rights organization PETA and the Leaping Bunny Program. The certification by both organizations demonstrates to consumers the Lime Crime Cosmetics dedication to vegan and cruelty-free makeup.

 

Doe Deere recommends that women interested in entrepreneurship follow their passion, watch the market, and focus on providing a product or service that consumers want. Doe’s passion was her love of fashion and then her love of cosmetics. It was this passion that led her to create a cosmetics line and watch it grow from a company that only offered a few products to a company with a large catalogue of cosmetics. The Lime Crime name and beauty brand has attained recognition worldwide.

Betsy DeVos a political fighter

April 12, 2018 • fishcarolina

Betsy DeVos was confirmed in the Senate in a 51-50 vote, with a tie-breaking vote that was cast by Vice President Mike Pence, which was the first ever from a cabinet officer. This has been the journey of Betsy, challenging the opposition and finding her way through politics. When Betsy was introduced to politics, she started out on a shaky ground which was witnessed through her shaky answers in her confirmation hearings.

 

After that, she was looked at as an ignorant politician, and she became really bored with the portrayal that she had in the eyes of the people. Although her friends say that she does not like the way the media portrays her, she does not show it, and she even states how the media have had fun with her. Additionally, in public forums, she just brushes off the mockery and even jokes about her confirmation hearings with the employees of the Education Department.

 

Once she was the Education Secretary, her first act was to plan a meeting up the leaders of the major teachers’ unions, Ms. Lily Eskelsen Garcia and Ms. Weingarten, the president of the National Education Association. Although Ms. Eskelse did not respond to Betsy’s invite, Ms. Weingarten decides to meet up with Betsy, and they planned out how they were going to visit schools together.

 

Mr. McNeilly supported the brilliant move made by Betsy because he knows that opposition to Betsy only channels her energy more into action. Betsy has always been a fighter when it comes to politics. Some people have stated that she has always been against regulation which contributed largely to the massive changes in public education. She has been at odds with people like John King, the former education secretary and founder of the charter schools because of her support of vouchers and opposition on regulation.

 

Betsy is seen as someone who has played a huge role in decimating public education through policies. Thomas Pedron, a Wayne State University professor agrees with this statement commented that Betsy is a strong figure when it comes to the choice movement, and he hopes that she will form an opening for a new focus on democratic public education. Since in the current setup, charters are funded by the public although they are privately operated, and around 80% of the charter schools in Michigan are for-profit.

 

Betsy has been a champion of educational choice, but her vision has always been to break down the mindset of students being discouraged from attending to some schools on a diffrent zip code. Betsy’s approach has always been to offer parents the freedom of taking their children to any school they saw fit. In the long term, Betsy would like to see how technology will favor the educational choice approach. She has seen that technology will break down the barriers or the restriction of education to facilities. If the right legislation is put in place, freedom will be more healthy for the education of the kids.

Securus Technologies helps prisons fight battle against illegal cellphones

April 5, 2018 • fishcarolina

There’s no doubt that cellular communications have been one of the most revolutionary transformations to the way in which ordinary people communicate. Cellular telephony made it possible for levels of productivity that had never before been seen. And they increasingly made it possible for people everywhere to stay in nearly constant touch with work, friends and family, no matter where they are or what they are doing.

 

With the ubiquity of modern cellular devices, it is easy to forget that, not so long ago, cellphones were primarily restricted to use by the rich, successful and famous. The first cellular devices were extremely bulky and expensive. When cellular telephones first began becoming widely available in the mid-80s, they were primarily limited to car installations. The components required to allow the high-power transmission systems to operate often took up a significant portion of a car’s trunk space and weighed up to 100 pounds. These phones may have been mobile, but they certainly were not easily portable. The upside to the bulk of these systems is the surprising fact that many of the first cellular telephones had nearly the range of modern devices. This was because they had up to 10,000 times the transmission power of modern cellphones.

 

But as the 80s turned into the 90s, cellular networks became more robust. Phone towers began a period of rapid expansion that wouldn’t drop off until the 2010s. By the year 2000, cellphones had gone from being 100-pound monstrosities that could only be contained in the trunk of a car to weighing just a few ounces and being able to fit literally almost anywhere. At the same time, the costs of both acquiring and using cellphones had dropped precipitously. Now, anyone could afford their own cellphone.

 

These developments were great for the economy as a whole. But the U.S. prison system would quickly realize that not all technological advancements are universally good. Starting around 2000, contraband cellphones began flooding the nation’s jails and prisons. These phones were used to circumvent secure prison communications platforms. But the real danger came from the phones quickly falling into the hands of the sophisticated and highly organized criminal gangs operating within the nation’s prisons.

 

Such gangs used the illegal phones to intimidate witnesses, conduct drug deals and even order hits on prison staff and prosecutors. The problem continued to escalate through 2010. Something needed to be done.

 

Then, in 2015, Securus Technologies began rolling out what it termed the Wireless Containment System. The system quickly racked up an impressive record, stopping nearly all illegal cellular calls from within prisons where it had been installed.

 

Now, the company is ramping up efforts to spread awareness of the system. With increasing adoption of the WCS, Securus estimates that, by 2020, illegal cellular calls will be virtually eliminated from the U.S. prison system.

Rocklage, along with Sanofi Ventures, Novartis Venture Fund, and Kleiner Perkings are helping Expansion Therapeutics secure Series A financing. The group has already raised over $55 million toward finding a cure for this disease.

DM1, as the disease is called, occurs when certain RNAs inside of cells rise to toxic levels which cause the heart, muscles, and central nervous systems in the body to break down. This disease is hereditary and has been known to infect entire families, becoming more debilitating with each generation. There is no cure or even an effective treatment for this disease.

There has recently been a breakthrough in the treatment of DM1, which was discovered by Dr. Matthew Disney, and it can now be treating with small molecule medications. The only problem is the laborious process of getting these treatments to market. That is where Scott Rocklage and his team come into play, raising millions of dollars to help get the treatment into the hands of those who need it.
