Breaking All the Rules

Don’t wear a brown belt with black shoes. No, acid wash jeans are not okay. Yes, neon pants with a pastel top will look insane. When it comes to fashion, there is a set of unspoken (and some spoken) rules that we are supposed to live by. But when it comes to makeup, we throw some of these silly policies out the window thanks to Lime Crime’s front woman Doe Deere.

Though she may not quite be a household name, Doe Deere has definitely made a place for herself in the cosmetics world. Creating her own line of lip and eye products, Doe has been an entrepreneur to watch and learn from. She sites her brand Lime Crime as being a symbol to break the rules, color outside of the lines, and most of all have fun, and never take yourself too seriously. She takes her advice to heart, creating looks that don’t bend to what society deems appropriate makeup.

One of Ms. Deere’s favorite rules to break is a bold lip paired with a bold eye, and that is easy to see when taking a gander at her photos on social media sites. The girl is all about going big or going home! Another rule Doe says is simple not for her: mixing too many colors. Practically a walking rainbow, she does not shy away from a bold blue and lavender top with some lime green hot pants, and she does pull it off. Also wearing open toed shoes with socks, the Lime Crime founder wears whatever she wants unapologetically.

Named one of the female entrepreneurs on the rise, Doe’s unique sense of style and empowerment sets a great example for young women to be themselves. Obviously this young lady has the right idea, as her business is booming. A force to be reckoned with, Doe will surely be captivating us all for years to come, as her line continues to grow.

The use of Online marketing options has been a major area of concern for many experts who feel the best options are often ignored by businesses and groups of all sizes who are hoping to create successful email marketing campaigns.

In this case, Talk Fusion founder and CEO Bob Reina simply wanted to add a short video to a personal email for friends, but was told by America Online in 2007 this was impossible; from this small seed grew the Talk Fusion brand that was created to offer business experts and individuals the chance to add a short video to their emails. Talk Fusion has now grown to include more than 1,000 templates for clients to use with ease to complete their video marketing options, but also allows clients with a little experience to create their own templates to create video marketing email campaigns.

The Mystery Source Behind Bear Stearns Collapse was Kyle Bass

comdon
April 12, 2016

A recent Wall Street Journal article disclosed the inside story of why in March 2008 David Faber, a reporter for CNBC, asked Alan Schwartz of Bear Stearns about reports Goldman Sachs would not accept its counterparty risk. Up until that point, the financial crisis was termed the subprime mortgage crisis and, though it certainly was having a wide impact on the real estate and financial services industry, it was not dramatic.

Before long, one of the great old investment banks of Wall Street was being sold to JPMorgan Chase for a highly discounted price. Its exposure to “toxic” subprime mortgage securities was no doubt the root cause of its demise, but that one question by a reporter was the trigger.

That made Bear Stearns the first Wall Street institutional victim of the crisis, but not the last. The most dramatic period came in September when Lehman Brothers, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, American International Group and Merrill Lynch went down like a line of dominoes.

According to the Wall Street Journal and just released government Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission records, Faber’s source for the information about Goldman Sachs not accepting the risk of dealing with Bear Stearns came from Kyle Bass, owner of the Hayman Capital Management hedge fund. He is also a former Bear Stearns executive.

Bass became famous for making a large fortune during the subprime mortgage crisis. He was one of the few financial managers who shorted mortgage securities, and therefore became famous as a commentator. However, his record since 2009 is not so admirable. Along with Erich Spanganberg, he has been working as a patent troll. The two of them pick out a large pharmaceutical firm, short its stock, then use their front organization the Coalition for Affordable Drugs to make bogus challenges to the company’s drug patents. The news of those challenges drives the company’s stock down, making the short trade profitable. Never mind that such patent challenges drive up the cost of pharmaceutical drugs that sick people need to get well. Therefore, everybody in society pays the cost of higher medical insurance premiums. Despite this, his hedge fund continues to lose money. Perhaps because every year since 2010 he’s predicted Japan’s economy will crash, and it hasn’t happened yet.  UsefulStooges has more information on Kyle Bass, and the shady dealings he’s had in the past.
