Doe Deere was born in Russia but her parents moved to New York City when she was still young and raised her there. She is known to many as the founder of Lime Crime Cosmetics and the current acting Chief Executive Officer. Lime Crime Cosmetics is known for its vibrant colors and was actually based on Doe’s favorite color which is Lime or bright green. The use of cosmetics to conceal imperfections is just the start and Doe Deere is out to show others that it is also more about self expression and freedom.

Her mission with the cosmetics line was to provide fans with vibrant colors as well as making the cosmetics cruelty free. So no animal testing of any sort. The company now makes a huge range of lipsticks, nail polishes and eye shadows. With the main focus on being as bright and ridiculous as possible.

All of the ideas that she comes up with Doe likes to try on herself to ensure the product feels right before going into production.

Doe Deere in a recent interview stated that its not sinful to break fashion rules. Just because you go against one trend does not make you a fashion recluse. She has provided us with some of her favorite fashion and beauty rules to break but still remain as stylish and up to date as possible. Number one is not to wear both bold lip and eye makeup together, focus on one bold thing at a time. Second thing to do is not to mix too many colors in one go. Third do not mix too many different patterns into one look. Fourth when wearing open toed shoes do not wear socks with them. Fifth if you have unnaturally colored hair you can only wear neutral colors or black to go with it. Sixth, you have to dress age appropriately and seventh rule one must stick to occasion specific dressing. These are the rules that you want to break if Doe Deere is your true fashion inspiration.

A Tiny Brazilian Mosquito Has Spread Fear All Over The World According To Dr. Sergio Cortes

Most North Americans and South Americans didn’t know what the Zika virus was until about nine months ago. But the Zika virus is not a new disease. Africans in Uganda, Tanzania and Sierra Leone have been coming down with the symptoms of the Zika virus for the last seven decades. People in Thailand and India have known about the disease since the 1950s. The sad news is, there has never been a vaccine made to prevent the disease from spreading.

Brazil didn’t report its first case of the Zika virus until 2015. Right around that time, cases of the rare birth defect microcephaly were reported in same Northern towns in Brazil. The Ministry of Health, under the leadership of Dr. Sergio Cortes, put the two conditions together and the government put an alert out that said pregnant women in Northern Brazil may be especially venerable to the Zika virus because of the extensive breeding grounds for the Aedes aegypti mosquito in that area of the country.

Dr. Cortes and his team went to work to prevent the spread of the virus. His team of researchers are trying to produce a vaccine. The World Health Organization also put out a travel alert that warned people to stay away from the Northern towns in Brazil. Dr. Cortes wasn’t convinced that the Zika virus and microcephaly were related. More studies got underway in order to stop the fear that was causing people in North and South America to panic at the mention of the Zika virus.

On his website, Dr. Cortes writes about the symptoms of the Zika virus and how long the symptoms last. He also writes about microcephaly and the potential cause of that disease. Cortes now believes that Zika and microcephaly are not as related as once thought. New information about crop-spraying with the Monsanto product, Pyriproxyfen, may be the cause of microcephaly. Pyriproxyfen causes a defect in new born mosquitoes, and that defect reduces the mosquito populations.

Dr, Cortes thinks there is a strong relationship between the Monsanto product and the increase in birth defects in the towns where Pyriproxyfen, is used to control the mosquito population, but more study is needed to confirm that theory.

For more information about the Zika virus and microcephaly visit the Dr. Cortes official site or his LinkedIn page. Facebook users can friend him on that social media site. And Twitter users can tweet Cortes.

Yeonmi Park Speaks Out Against North Korean Tyranny

Although only 22, Yeonmi Park has already experienced more of life than most people ever see, or ever want to.

Park was born in Hyesan, which is in the northern part of North Korea. She lived close to the Yalu River. On the north side of the river was China.

The Soviet Union used to support North Korea, but when the Soviet Union broke up, that support vanished. From 1994 through 1998, North Korea suffered a terrible famine.

Park writes of having just a frozen potato to eat. She had no idea cookbooks existed. To her, food was something to eat to live, not because it tasted good.

To feed his family, Yeonmi Park‘s father made money in the blackmarket, but was caught by the police. After the government sent him away to a forced labor camp, Park, her mother and her sister became even more desperate. They not only had lost the father’s income, but now the state considered them enemies because of their father’s crime.

They found a man to guide them across the frozen Yalu River, but they didn’t realize he had a hidden motive. Once they were all in China, he raped Park’s mother. He sold them both.

After two years in China, Yeonmi Park learned Mongolia would send her to South Korea. But to reach Mongolia, she and her mother had to trek across the Gobi Desert, withstanding frigid temperatures. In Mongolia, however, officials wanted to send the two women back to China. Park and her mother pleaded for their lives. China would send them back to North Korea, which would kill them.

In 2014, she made a speech at One Young World Summit that went viral, getting seen on NK News more than two million times.

Penguin published her book, In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom, in September 2015. It tells a horrible story, but one of hope. Park of the youngvoicesadvocates survived her journey to freedom, and is now sharing even the shameful details with the rest of the world. Because she refuses to remain silent, the North Korean government’s propaganda has targeted her. Park survived, and will not rest until all the people of her country are free.

Helane Morrison contributions in the corporate world

Helane Morrison is a popular and successful lawyer. For some years now, she has held the position of managing Director at the Securities and Exchange Commission based in San Francisco. She is very optimistic that she will be able to perform her duties well while holding the position of Office Administrator in the same office. Her promotion was announced just recently by the organization’s chairman, Mr. Arthur Levitt. She will actually be the first woman to work in the position of district chief.

During the time she worked with SEC, Helane says that she has always made a good team with her fellow workmates in order to strengthen their presence and also make a good impact in the organization. Now working as the person in charge of the office, she has to ensure that the office momentum keeps going.
Helane Morrison is 46 years old, and she will be managing the enforcement and the examination activities in the San Francisco office and its jurisdictions. Some of the places under her include northern California, Washington, Montana, Oregon, Alaska and northern Nevada.
Helane Morrison succeeded David Bayless, the person who was in her position for over 5years. He had resigned from his job to become a partner in the Morrison and Foerster Law Company based in San Francisco.
Morris joined SEC in 1996, and since then, she has managed to supervise major investigations. Three of these investigation resulted to the enforcement action on republic securities of New York, The Dean Witter and auditions performed on California Micro Devises.In the market today, there are very many compliance officers. However, very few can match the compliance standards set by Helane Morrison. They lack the knowledge and skills she displays in her work, hence failing terribly in their work. According to the CEO of Sterling Management, fraud and scandals happening in the corporates cannot end.

According to a report by Sterling Management, compliance officers should have enough power, knowledge and expertise to detect and put an end to any fraud or scandal before it blows out of proportion. Morrison has been able to perform very well in the male dominated office because she has all it takes. Most compliance officers are too busy in other activities, and this makes them forget their important duties. They are also not well paid, and sometimes, they have to cheat in order to get good bonuses.

Dog Food Good Enough to Eat? Maybe…

It used to be considered better to feed your dog table scraps than the food sold in the store. Today’s dog food is being made from fresh ingredients that are good enough for humans to eat. The gourmet dog food market has grown 45% since 2009 and continues to grow on Facebook as pet owners are demanding better tasting, nutritious foods for their dogs. Today’s foods are no longer made from the scraps left on meat cutting floors. Gourmet dog foods are blended foods from premium cuts of beef, chicken, lamb, and even duck. Gourmet, or premium dog foods, used to be a specialty item produced only by small companies. But larger corporations have seen the benefit and profit potential of producing their own specialty dog foods. An example of this is Purina’s healthful dog food Beneful. Beneful is a line of dog food produced especially for the discerning pet owner. Purina begins it’s production by inspecting every ingredient that is put into Beneful. Purina is also a member of the Association of American Feed Control Officials(AAFCO), a voluntary group of organizations who work to ensure only the safest of ingredients are used in animal food. To make their commitment to producing safe and healthy dog food, Purina has instituted strong safety and tracking regulations. From the moment the ingredients are approved by their buyers, the feed is tracked and monitored by an on-site team of quality assurance and safety testers. The testing includes constant screening for multiple toxins, and to make sure the food is kept as fresh as possible. The product is tracked until it reaches the grocery market shelf. The painstaking work done is why the gourmet dog food market continues to grow. By placing a greater emphasis on producing a quality, healthy product versus large quantities, dog food producers are developing loyal followers. Premium dog food now accounts for about half of the total market and it appears there will be continued, significant growth in the coming years.
