The idea was born in Los Angeles, California in 2004. Deere speaks candid about the birth of her unapologetic Lime Crime Make-Up Line: “In 2004, I registered a new account on eBay – “limecrime” – for my new DIY fashion line. I modeled everything myself and wanted my whole look to be on-brand, so colorful makeup became my staple. The idea for a makeup brand originated back in my sewing days – part inspiration, part necessity because I found that bright and unusual colors were hard to come by! I launched Lime Crime in 2008.”

About

Kyle Bass Makes Poor Choices, Pays For It

There are plenty of articles that one can find that praise various hedge fund managers and the like. However, there are not as many articles that one will find about the mistakes that some of these managers make. That being said, Kyle Bass is the perfect example of someone who has made some terrible investment choices and has paid heavily for it.

If he was ever a good investor, that good period has long passed for Mr. Bass. His investment strategies have been tanking all the while he seems to accept more and more media requests for interviews. This is truly an odd situation, but it appears to be the route that Bass wants to take.

The associates that Bass keeps company with are not people that are too impressive in the world of business either. The fact is that some of these people have terrible records in the business world, and others are simply seen as not being all that important to making good investment choices.

A lot of the ties that he has are the Argentina, but this does not seem like a very sound thing to do. There is a lot of speculation about why Bass has these connections in the first place. That being said, there are not any hard connections that are known for sure which can explain all of this.

Lately he has been in the news for buying up prescription drugs and jacking up the prices on those drugs. The sad part is that these are drugs which patients need badly in order to remain alive. However, it seems that Bass cares only about his own profit line and how much he can rake in for his companies. He does not seem to care about the patients that purchase his product.

UsefulStooges show that he has tried to say that the reason for the price increase is so that more money can go into funding a better drug. However, industry experts have refuted this saying that the current drug is perfectly fine for getting the job done. They also don’t see why one would have to raise the price of the drug in order to pay for new research. Why not just fund the research they say?

There are certainly a lot of questions about this character and they are likely to only continue to rise as time goes on. Those who have ever considered doing business with him ought to steer clear at least for the time being. There are far too many question marks about this man.

Yeon-mi Park: The Voice of Freedom for North Korea

21 year old Yoenmi Park on youtube has become a national hero or a feared political enemy depending on who you listen to. Born in 1993 in Heysan, North Korea under the oppressive regime of Kim Jong-Il, one of Yoen-mi’s earliest memories is of seeing her best friend’s mother being shot by a firing squad.

When Yoen-mi was only 9 years old, her father was arrested and sent to a forced labor camp. He had been smuggling precious metals into China as a means of keeping his family alive during a crippling famine. There, he was beaten brutally and eventually fell ill. Yeon-mi’s parents realized that if they wanted to survive, they were going to have to escape North Korea somehow.

The only way out was across the river into China and the only time this was possible was in the dead of winter when the river was frozen. Yeon-mi’s sister, Eun-mi, was chosen to go first, and Yeon-mi and her mother soon followed. Once in China, they lived in constant fear of being tracked down by authorities tasked with rooting out defectors and sending them back to North Korea. Yeon-mi’s father eventually made their way to them, but he died before making it out of China and Eun-mi became lost and was feared to be dead.

After two long years of unimaginable hardships and atrocities, Yeon-mi and her mother made it across the brutally harsh climes of the Gobi desert into Mongolia. There, they sought refuge at the South Korean embassy.

But far from sitting back and simply enjoying her newfound freedom, Yeonmi Park has taken on the arduous task of seeing her people set free of the oppression of Kim Jong-Il’s brutal regime. Her quest is aided by Western media which is spreading the message of capitalism to the young people of her country via the black market, for which the current “Black Market Generation” is named.

Yeon-mi has been asked to speak at prestigious International Events like the One Young World Summit in Dublin last fall, where her message went viral and she became the face of North Korea’s violent oppression.

At first, there seemed to be discrepancies in her story, until it was discovered that what she was trying to hide was the painful fact that she had been trafficked while in China, which filled her with deep shame. Now, however, she realizes that this is part of the story that will help shed light on the reality of just how brutal the conditions actually are in her home country. Yeon-mi is currently working on a book about her experiences and she is determined to share her story as honestly and factually as possible.

The North Korean government has made it very clear that they do not want this book written, as they have both engaged in multiple smear campaigns against Yeon-mi, as well as sending threats to the author working with her on her book.

Nothing But The Best for My 4 Dogs: Beneful

I have four dogs. I know it is a bit much for my small house, but I love my animals. I never wanted to marry or have children; I always said I would have a house full of pets. Well, I have accomplished my dreams. However, being a mother to a pet is just as hard as a child at times. We are responsible for their car, which includes both food and veterinarian expenses. I get so upset at people who take animals but can’t afford their care. Anyway, my dogs range from a St. Bernard to a Chihuahua. I wanted to be able to buy one kind of dog food to fit all, but I just didn’t think that would work.

I had to do a lot of research into finding good food with great nutrients. Many times I stood in the aisle of the grocery store looking at the ingredients in the bags of dog food. For me, it was just as important to find a good food that tastes good as it was to find a reputable company behind that food. There are so many new products that have come up on the market in the past few years claiming to be so good for the dog. However, I don’t take their word for it. Look at all the companies who have failed in the past.

They have many products lines, but the one that was most intriguing to be was the Beneful on multivu foods section. They have food varieties come in both home-style and kibble. Did you know that Beneful created a Dog Goldberg Machine? It’s not the first time that a company has used such a scheme for advertising, but Beneful used real dogs in the action. It is simply fascinating and no wonder this company gets such good revues, they really care about the dogs they feed. It was simply amazing to watch and the fact that they trained these dogs was spectacular.

So while Beneful looked good to me, it was really all about the dogs and what they wanted. Just like children, every dog seems to have a taste all their own. I have two that eat the Beneful prepared style meals and the other two prefer the kibble. So, I purchase a variety and leave it out for them to enjoy during the day. They are all healthy and that is all a pet mother could ask for. None of them have any health problems and they have shiny coats and great teeth. So, whatever Beneful is using in their products seems to work miracles. I am thrilled to have found these products.

Andy Wirth Sees The Clean Power Plan As good For Both The Economy And The Environment

 

The environment has recently been having a large impact on the economy of California in the view of Squaw Valley CEO and President Andy Wirth, which has led to him throwing his backing behind the Clean Power Plan being considered across California. In an article printed in the Reno Gazette-Journal the former volunteer firefighter and Edinburgh University graduate has expkained why he believes the plan will be of benefit to the Olympic Valley region. In his article, Wirth explained that by accepting the Clean Power Plan the Reno area would see a boost to its economy and improve the environment that is vital to the tourist industry.

Andy Wirth arrived at Squaw Valley Ski Resort in 2010 as CEO and President of the group after a successful resort management career that included time in North American and Carribean resorts. The German born executive has been a major supporter of many community based programs in Olympic Valley, which include working for the Lake Tahoe Winter Olympics Committee. Following a skydiving accident that saw Wirth almost lose an arm the tourism expert has also been working to raise funds for a number of groups, including the families of Navy Seals.

Andy Wirth believes the Clean Power Plan can benefit the Reno region as a whole in a number of ways. Firstly, a switch to burning less fossil fuels should see the quality of air in the Olympic Valley region improve and see a return of greater numbers of tourists. The area remains popular, but Wirth believes any action to aid the environment of the Reno area will be a positive in bringing in new visitors and adding an extra aspect to the economy.

Make Up for Men and Women

Time for a Change

Perfect appearances have long been the social norm. Much of society has declared that anyone daring to step outside of polished gray suits and tucked in shirts was considered an outsider and made to feel unworthy for their uniqueness. Those with dreams and aspirations to have a little fun and freedom to be themselves and look the way they want to look should be able to do just that. When it comes to makeup, men and women have both
been repressed for way to long. Yes, I really did say that men also like makeup. They want to feel gorgeous and sexy just like every girl does. They should be able to do that without fear of judgment or ridicule.

Incredible Colors

A new makeup line by Doe Deere on ideamensch is for both boys and girls. No one is left out. The makeup comes in many colors of the rainbow. That could be why one line of her makeup is called “Makeup for Unicorns”. Bright blue, purple, and orange lipsticks throw caution to the wind. No more settling for just boring mauve pinks. Even the eye makeup is colorful.
Eyeliners come in choices that include bright yellow, and there are eye shadows with glitter. Everything comes in gorgeous packaging, so your makeup bag is full of pretty things.

Color for Men

Going out wearing makeup when you are a man can be considered too risqué by some people. If you love the way it makes you look and feel though, don’t worry about what anyone thinks. Just go for it. Anything goes when it comes to makeup. Some men think that the only time they should wear makeup is when they paint on their favorite sport’s teams colors at the game. This isn’t true. Guys can have color all of the time. You can keep it subtle, and just add a bit of black eyeliner for intensity if you want. Go for a gothic look, and add black lipstick too. For something new, try drawing designs on the skin. If heads turn when you walk by, just remember that its because you look fabulous.

Accentuate Your Best Features

Makeup for girls has always been a given. Little girls start dressing up and getting in to their mother’s makeup at an early age. They paint on colors any way they want, and when they look in the mirror, they feel beautiful. That is what makeup should do. It should lift your confidence and highlight your best features while playing down the ones that you don’t like so much. Try experimenting with different colors until you get the look that you feel confident wearing.
