Doe Deere: A Pioneer in the Makeup Industry

Doe Deere founder of the cosmetic company Lime Crime was born and raised in Russia. She moved to New York at age 17 and lived there from 1998-2012. She currently lives in Los Angeles. She feels she has always been ambitious and dreamed of being a musician as a child. When she moved to New York she became a musician. After starting out in music she ventured into makeup. Her musical career helped prepare her for a career in makeup. She first got into business at the age of 13 by selling temporary tattoos. She met her husband when they were in the same musical band together.

 

She says the best advice she can give to young ambitious women is to follow your dreams and take advantage of your unique talents. Her company Lime Crime became very successful because it focused on bright and unusual colors in makeup that were not being produced by other companies. She feels her line of makeup gives women the power to express themselves. She also majored in fashion design in New York which helped her in the makeup industry.

 

Lime Crime was founded in 2008. The companies vision is to stay true to their core values while making customers happy. The origin of the company actually started on Ebay when Doe Deere opened an account to model her fashion line and overall look. The biggest success for the company was the introduction of liquid-to-matte lipstick. This new makeup doesn’t crumble or transfer. The entire line of makeup is also certified cruelty free with no animal products by Leaping Bunny, one of the most respected certifiers in the business (http://frenchtribune.com/teneur/25362-how-controversial-doe-deere-became-successful-entrepreneur). The line is also certified by Vegan. In 2014 the company fell prey to a cyber hackers and unfortunately some customer information was stolen.

Meet Dr. Cameron Clokie the CEO of Canada’s Induce Biologics Inc.

Manipulating bones to grow especially in adults seems like an impossibility, but regenerative medicine is capable of it. The field of medicine which is somewhat controversial is improving every single day, and it could soon be appealing to people who currently hold a different view courtesy of their religious beliefs.

For example, one Canadian doctor—Cameron Clokie—is at an advanced stage of scientific research aimed at the sourcing of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) from an alternative source than cadavers. The protein is at the heart of regenerative medicine. Dr. Clokie’s plans involve nurturing a human gene that produces BMP inside a goat’s body.

As a result, goats will dispense the protein in large quantities through their milk. If Dr. Clokie’s plans materialize, he will be one step ahead of making regenerative medicine widely acceptable.

Who is Dr. Cameron Clokie? He is the go-to professional regarding regenerative medicine. Part of his 30-year career in either in academic dentistry or clinical practice somehow focused on regenerative medicine.

Sawyer Howitt, Turning Heads In The Business World

At just 17 years old, Sawyer Howitt is already making quite the large splash in the ocean that is entrepreneurial commerce.

He is currently a project manager at the Meriwether Group and despite just getting his career going, he has already overseen many philanthropic organizations.

Sawyer Howitt is one of the rare examples of truly noble and selfless individuals. He is known for freely giving out tips and advice to other burgeoning young entrepreneurs, giving them a leg up with the knowledge he has gained through his own success.

Being born in the year that makes him a ‘Millennial’ has made it a bit rough for him as the stereotype of Millenial laziness is well propagated though based on no fact. It is very easy for young entrepreneurs to be intimidated by the bigger players in the financial world, he is combating this by showing the older professionals that him as well as other Millennials are more than capable of handling the challenges ahead of them.

Many of the young entrepreneurs of today’s age feel that their youth and inexperience makes it a bad move to start a business and this is somewhat true but there comes a point where nothing will be gained by waiting. Sawyer’s advice is to start working your passion right away, whether you need to find an internship or take some online courses to educate yourself.

Being a young entrepreneur like Sawyer Howitt, you may lack the workplace experience of the older age groups but what is lacking in experience is almost always made up for with energy and excitement to learn something new. Younger people also have a financial advantage over the older generation as they have no families to support and no overhanging mortgages, giving them a greater level of financial freedom.

According to medium.com, self-confidence is key as many people will easily and readily dismiss you based on your lack of experience and seeming lack of confidence in your own abilities. As a young entrepreneur, you are your own self-promoter. One way to practice boosting self confidence is to take ownership for both the things that you do that are successful as well as learning from the mistakes from the endeavors that are not successful.

Larkin & Lacey

Black Lives Matter is an organization that champions for Black rights. BLM puts a refreshing twist on previous Black liberation movements by placing extra emphasis on demographics within the black community that have been marginalized and set aside by male, cis-gender leaders.

Historically, females, LGBTQ people, disabled people, a mix of the last three things or all of the above have been ignored while cis-gender males took the front seat. However, in the 21st century, it is the time for others in the black community to shine and to be given a chance to show their presence and their voices.

Black Lives Matter actively seeks out news about injustices that have been committed against blacks for racial reasons, and communicates these injustices with the rest of the world so that they are never forgotten. BLM also engages in social justice action to make people aware that, yes, Black lives do matter.

EURO is an organization that is all about the rights of people who are of European descent and identity. The philosophy behind EURO’s existence is that yes, there is discrimination against “whites,” it is wrong and people are needlessly suffering and having their rights impeded upon because of it. The existence and rhetoric of this organization go against the rhetoric of organizations like Black Lives Matter.

This is because according to organizations like Black Lives Matter, there is no such thing as racism against white people; there is only racism against nonwhites, and whites are automatically guilty of racism while nonwhites are automatically the non-racist victims.

In the eyes of organizations like Black Lives Matter, the existence of an organization fighting for the plight of “whites” is invalid, and constitutes as a contemptuous attack of hate against everybody else in the world.

Unidos Us is the new name for the National Council of La Raza. Unidos Us has been around for several decades. It has been fighting for the rights of Hispanic Americans through litigation and social action. This organization has come under fire for the harsh words of some of its members, including it’s founder. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey:  http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/

However, in American society, it would be considered more politically correct for a person to be a part of this organization than for an organization that fights for the plight that EURO fights for. The goal of Unidos Us is to help Hispanic people to achieve in society, and to have their hard-earned achievements recognized. The issues that they take on include health, youth, immigration, voting, economy, criminal justice and civil rights.

Due to injustices that were committed, Maricopa County paid $3.7 million to two men—Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. Instead of squandering their money through selfish means, they decided to put their money to the best of use by starting a fund for local civil rights organizations.

The name of this fund is the Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund, and it exists in the border-state of Arizona. The Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund focuses on the rights of people in Hispanic communities, as well as the rights of immigrants; though it also focuses on a wider range of issues.

Waiakea Water: on a Mission to Save the World

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to not be able to easily take a warm shower or get a drink or water? Sadly, that is a major struggle people in many parts of the world face; more than 650 billion people, worldwide, do not have access to clean water and 37% of those people live in Sub-Saharan Africa. As a result of dirty water, every 20 seconds, a child dies. Waiakea water plans to change that. For every liter of Waiakea water purchased, they will donate a week’s worth of clean water to Africa and other places throughout the world.

Waiakea partnered with Pump Aid, in part, because they focused some of their efforts on Malawi. In Malawi, water consumption is a mere 15-20 liters per day; to put that into perspective, the average American uses over 660 liters of water per day. In Malawi, the leading cause of death in children under 5 and the second leading cause of death in adults is the lack of clean water and poor sanitation.

Pump Aid has installed more than 4,230 water pumps, helping more than 480,000 people, in Malawi alone. Overall, throughout the world, Pump Aid has installed enough pumps to help more than 1.35 million people have clean water and basic sanitation. Together, Waiakea and Pump Aid want to expand their efforts through Sub-Saharan Africa.

Waiakea’s water is filtered through roughly 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock. This filtration process gives their water a unique blend of life-sustaining minerals. Waiakea’s water is found more than 2,400 miles from the nearest industrial land mass and is surrounded by 10 million square miles of ocean. The water comes from snowmelt and rain from Mauna-Loa, an active volcano and one of the purest environments on the face of the Earth.

Waiakea holds the resources the land has to offer in high regard. Therefore, they hold their sustainability efforts in utmost importance. One thing the company does is use 100% recycled polyethylene terephthalate (RPET) to make their water bottles. RPET is post-consumer recycled plastic and has environmental advantages that, when compared to virgin plastic bottles, include: using 85% less energy to manufacture, reduces carbon emissions by more than 90%, and uses 90% less water.
