If it is about hair, it better not be a joke. The prime of the beauty products lies across the range of hair care products, and with thousands of companies hassling and endeavoring to create the ideal shampoos and conditioners, the war out there has gone from huge to insanely brutal. The height of concern for the consumers centres upon the chemicals used in the products. Is there sulfur in it? Is ammonia included? Is the chemical too strong for repeated use? Is it okay for certain hair types and disastrous for others? Needless to say, a dire need of a hero has arisen in this industry.
WEN by Chaz Dean might just be that long awaited superman. Educated in cosmetology at Los Angeles, the now Hollywood-based hair stylist caters to the hair needs of celebrities and therefore, sports tons of experience when it comes to hair and hair products. The product line of Chaz stands unparalleled with the conspicuous absence of the harsh chemicals that are now only too common for the beauty products.
Wen hair products combine shampoo and conditioners in one bottle and promise the revival of natural hair beauty instead of artificially inducing it. They do not occlude the natural oil production of the hair, allowing them to gain strength from within.
The launch of Wen hair products on ebay has created gigantic waves in the market. Bustle recently reported a volunteer’s experiment on her hair. Within a single week, the volunteer, Emily McClure, found her hair visibly shinier and easier to manage, while grabbing quite a few compliments from her friends as well. WEN, according to her, is a product of daily use, and effectively cleanses your hair and scalp to give it a healthy look that lasts the entire day. The entire experiment, recorded day by day, can be read here: http://www.bustle.com/articles/136320-i-used-cleansing-cleansing-conditioner-on-my-fine-hair-heres-what-happened.

Billionaire Dick DeVos of the prestigious DeVos family recently announced his endorsement of the republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio. The entrepreneur’s support of the presidential candidate for the republican primaries comes at a time when Marco Rubio is in great need of powerful financial support. The Senator’s campaign is in vital need of support and the the DeVos family’s endorsement of his campaign could mean a revitalization for the Rubio camp.
DeVos listed as one of his reasons for backing the Florida senator the focus and commitment Marco Rubio shows in the educational field and his focus and commitment to improving the educational system as a whole. The businessman first gained knowledge of Marco Rubio when the presidential hopeful was the speaker of the house of the Florida House of Representatives in 2006. Devon stated that Rubio showed impressive leadership skills even as a young congressman and that he was impressed with Rubio’s ability to implement change a state level during their campaign for enhanced school choice reform in 2006. The businessman sites these among the many reasons that he and his family decided to endorse Marco Rubio for president.
Dick stated that the decision to back presidential candidate Marco Rubio came just after republican nominee Jeb Bush decided to leave the presidential race following his disappointing results in the highly anticipated South Carolina presidential primary.
The former Florida governor finished fourth in the race following presidential candidates Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio. After Bush’s concession, DeVos decided that his endorsement would go to the candidate that he believed could win, Marco Rubio. Devon announced that through his endorsement of Marco Rubio, he would like to help the candidate to gain the momentum necessary to successfully win the nomination for the republican candidate for president. The businessman relayed that he had high hopes for Rubio’s campaign and expected the senator to do well in the remaining primaries.
Dick DeVos is a member of one of the wealthiest families in the country and has contributed to a number of republican presidential and politically affiliated campaigns. Dick accumulated his wealth during his time at Amway (see MLIVE article) where he made the company successful on a global scale before leaving to found his own business. In addition to the many campaign contributions made by DeVos, his charitable contributions through his family foundation include donations made to artistic, educational, and religious organizations to name a few. DeVos also created an educational initiative along with his wife in order to provide private school funding to low income individuals. Devos and his wife have created several educational initiatives, including a scholarship for students in developing nations to receive M.B.A. degrees at university (find his resume on New Netherland Institute).
Betsy shares her approach for creating more quality educational opportunities for children in Detroit.
In 2006, DeVos ran for governor of Michigan. Although his campaign was not successful, DeVos continued to contribute to local and national political campaigns and create successful programs around the world. Dick’s endorsement of Marco Rubio will contribute to the campaign’s revitalization and will help the campaign to gain endorsement by other businessmen and organizations. For more information regarding Dick DeVos’ contribution to the Marco Rubio campaign the original article can be foundhere.

When you are running your business and looking for tools to help it operate smoothly, you should be on the look out for which companies you can trust. Part of the research that I conduct is to see what type of leadership each company has by looking at their founders and CEOs. I recently picked up on a leading video communication company that I want to work with, and I thought I’d share what I found about the company and their leader.
Leadership That Matters
Talk Fusion is a video communication company that is lead by a very charismatic and courageous man named Bob Reina. Bob didn’t start off as a CEO and founder of a company. He went to school at the University of South Florida, and he enrolled in training at the Tampa Police Academy after graduation. He actually worked as a police officer for quite some time before being introduced into the world of direct selling. He would soon open his own company which prompted him to look for a better video communication service.
Bob Reina was trying to send videos over his email by using America Online. He had a technology advisor that helped out with the problem, and he opened Talk Fusion to provide a solution to other people.

Talk Fusion is constantly updating their products in order to offer the freshest and most compelling products in the video communication industry. They have been around since 2007, so they really have built up a lot of trust in the video communication market.

The name Human Rights Organization should speak for itself, but for those who do not know what they are and what they do pay attention. First and foremost, the Human Rights Organization was is a nonprofit nonpartisan organization. They have built a foundation of beliefs and morals based upon the International Covenant On Civil and Political rights in 1976. The organization was founded by Thor Halvorssen. They have a mission that states that every human should have the right to do a number of things such as freedom of speech, freedom of self- determination, the right to acquire property, freedom of association, the right to equal and due process under the law along with a few other things that you may feel you are entitled to anyway. The reason Thor Halvorseen and company feel they need to fight for rights we feel like we have is because there is discrimination and privilege all over the world and the United States. There is unequal rights in the legal system, civil rights have been compromised and the people sometimes feel like victims of the government. They also offer programs that teach people about freedom and the importance of a free society and teaches those who do not know that other peoples freedoms are taken away from them that that is the case and is happening all over the world. Thor Halvorsesen is a film producer and has been a long time advocate for the Human Right Organization. The 39 year old Venezuela born college graduate of the University of Pennsylvania has also founded the Moving Picture Institute.

This article explains how GoFundMe is helping Autism Rocks create better fundraising opportunities at every turn.
#1: Why Open The GoFundMe Page?
A GoFundMe page may be left open in perpetuity, and the user may share the page anywhere they like.

Kyle Bass was first raised to the spotlight in 2008 when he purchased millions of dollars in credit-default swaps against the United States home equity market, essentially a bet against the well-being of the overall mortgage market. In layman’s terms, Bass predicted the 2008 financial crisis and earned a lot of money. Very few people earned money through the 2008 recession, but nobody earned as much as Kyle Bass UsefulStooges reports. Despite his potential, Bass has surprisingly made tons of terrible decisions throughout his career.
Bass has been featured on a number of financial-related television programs as a featured guest and inadvertently provided viewers with loads of inaccurate or misleading information. He incorrectly predicted Japan’s economy to collapse throughout 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, to no avail. Those naive enough to take Bass’ advice have all lost money on the suggested investments.
General Motors was forced to issue a mass recall about a decade ago when many of their new vehicles’ power steering systems and airbags failed to work properly, causing several GM consumers to lose their lives and many more peoples’ permanent injuries. While GM assumed full responsibility for their faults, Kyle Bass, a longtime stockholder in General Motors, decided to lash out against the consumers who purchased the vehicles and drove them while they wrecked.
Most recently, Bass made headlines around the world for filing a lawsuit against Acorda Therapeutics for charging too much for their drug Ampyra, which was developed and patented by Acorda. Kyle Bass caused so much damage that thousands of multiple sclerosis patients were separated from their medicine because of the lawsuit by Bass.
Kyle has ties with Argentina, a country most recently known for defaulting on the entirety of their sovereign debt without arranging any payment plans. Bass backed up Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, an Argentinan lawyer closely associated with the government, although she should have been avoided at all costs. When will Kyle Bass ever get his head on straight?
When a financial firm has a hedge fund worth more than $2 billion, it takes a special type of professional to properly manage it and help it grow. Having a willingness to take numerous calculated risks, along with using an in-depth knowledge of various financial markets around the world, tend to result in a hedge fund that will grow in value over a period of time. When Sam Tabar found himself in charge of a hedge fund worth more than $2 billion, he viewed it as a challenge that he needed to take on and conquer rather than one that was fraught with chances of failure.
Determined to see it grow by leaps and bounds, Sam set out to make investor relations his top priority. Building a network composed of high net-worth investors, Sam immediately began to see the fund grow in value. Meeting with investors all over the world, Sam was able to build up a personal file of more than 2,000 investors with whom he could consult with on a regular basis. As for the hedge fund, it grew in value from $2 billion to more than $3.5 billion, turning it into one of the world’s foremost hedge funds.
Even though his position with PMA was based in Hong Kong, Sam was nevertheless able to still connect with numerous voters in the United States as well as other countries. Taking full advantage of his education from Oxford University and Columbia Law School, Sam used his experience with international affairs to build his investor network. Along the way, he also began to focus on global marketing strategies that would eventually lead PMA to the top of the financial world. Due to his success with the hedge fund, from LinkedIn Sam found himself promoted to Managing Director and Head of Business Strategy. In this position, Sam was able to implement many of his ideas and watch them make the firm more successful than ever. As he continues to explore new and innovative business ideas, it’s expected Sam will introduce one idea after another that will have others sitting up and taking notice of day after day. Check out Sam Tabar’s Instagram feed, and he’s also got a GoFundMe account to help support African children.
