A few years ago Andy Wirth didn’t know if he would live to see another day. On a beautiful fall day in October of 2013, Wirth and a couple of friends went skydiving. This is something Andy Wirth loved to do and had done many, many times throughout his life. This day however was a bit different – http://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/person.asp?personId=36030954&privcapId=7911768.
As he was landing he realized he was going to have to land in a vineyard. This of course is not the ideal place to land when you are skydiving. But unfortunately he had no other choice. As he was making his final maneuvers to land, Wirth’s arm was taken off by a pole that was holding up the vines.
According to TahoeTopia, Andy Wirth quickly realized things weren’t looking good. The good news is he had experience with trauma in remote areas after working as a backcountry ranger many years prior. He knew the most important thing to do was stay calm so his body wouldn’t go into shock.
Wirth was in the vineyard for 15 minutes before being rescued and taken to the nearest medical facility for further treatment.
Wirth spent 3 months in the hospital and was able to go home with his arm back. To say thats a miracle is an understatement. His desire to live should be a testament to us all.

VTA Publications writes that every day is different and that’s a fact. Each day is so different that literally anything new and different could happen. But does anything that different ever happen? Well, the sad truth is it used to but nothing that new and exciting seems to ever happen much anymore. When I was a young boy, I vividly remember waiting for each new day. Every day was like Christmas to me because nothing was ever the same and there was always something new always happening. But all that newness and excitement seemed to stop at some point. It’s not that way anymore though and it’s not just me, it’s like that with just about everybody. I think it all stopped when I was ushered into life as an adult. Think about your life as an adult now. You get up, you eat breakfast or something that you pass off as eating breakfast, and for most of us, we then head to some job we probably wouldn’t miss if the building it was housed in burned to the ground. When I was a kid I always thought that being an adult would be such an adventure. But to many people, if not most people, it’s turned into a kind of a mindless brain numbing waste of time. There’s nothing new or exciting in being an adult and it’s not because there’s nothing new and exciting to do or learn or read about. It’s just that many of us have turned our brains off. Here’s an example of what I’m talking about and how life could be. Prince just died recently. There was a man who how to live life. He was constantly creating, constantly pushing himself to new heights. Every day was an adventure for him. Can’t you be that way too? You could if you wanted to.
I want to get back to my life as a child for a minute to show you how different it was than my life as an “Adult.” One of the things I remember vividly as a kid was going to grade school. Everything I learned there was new and amazing and then there were the school lunches. Lunch was exciting because I was introduced to foods that I never saw at home. It was like being on an ocean cruise. It was truly a gourmet experience. But what about today? The operative thing today seems to don’t learn anything, don’t talk with real people, and for goodness sake don’t ask questions. If you find that hard to believe, take a stab at how uninformed most people are today. Ask them a simple question. How bout this one, who won World War II, better yet who were the axis powers in WWII. You’ll be surprised at how many people won’t have a clue what you’re talking about much less what the answers are.
They don’t know any of this because they’re too busy, playing video games, or talking and texting someone about some useless piece of information on their cell phone. But life isn’t at all like that. Life is, in fact, special, wonderful, and a great gift and you’re just plain stupid if you squander it. So get up and go out and do something creative, build something new, learn something amazing, be good and be creative and don’t just sit around collecting callouses.

Life is too short to have boring hair. Wen is a cleansing conditioner living up to this standard. Their shampoo is a wonderful conglomeration of 3 things in one. It is a shampoo, a conditioner and a hair treatment. It is formulated for all hair types and comes in different scents. The sephora fig version is a popular one because it provides extra moisture and gives the hair a sought after sheen.
One girl in particular wanted to test out this infamous product and she embarked on a 7 day journey documented on Bustle, to see if the results held true. Emily’s first day started off with skepticism. She was using double or more the amount of WEN than she normally used. Her first day results were noticeable. Her hair felt thicker, less hair fell out when she showered and after blowdrying she noticed a lot more sheen and bounce.
By day three Emily noticed her hair was a little bit greasy. She followed the process again and noticed that her was flatter than usual. She was okay with that result and was impressed at how healthy and shiny her hair looked. On day five she tried a different look and decided to curl her hair after washing and rinsing it with Wen. She found out that after she curled her hair, the waves fell a little more quickly but it still looked and felt amazing.
By day seven she continued to have consistent results. She noticed that WEN is a product that has to be used daily to have great results. Consistency is key. One’s hair suffers in between washes. When using the product she noted that her hair was healthier, manageable, shinier and looked great. It is not for the lazy. Staying on routine is the key to success.
A recent article appears online about a local attorney launching a go fund me page for stray animals. On further review of the article, you will find out that Ross Abelow is starting the campaign for local animal shelters. He is a New York attorney that completed law school in New York. He later took a job working in family and corporate law. Ross is listed on the Lawyer lighthouse listing for attorneys in New York. After more research of the article, you will learn that Abelow is launching his campaign as a community volunteer project. He wants to help the hundreds of dogs and cats around the city that have no home.
To understand the life of a homeless dog you must first understand where the dog probably came from. One stray dog may have been part of a liter of ten. He or she may have been the one no one wanted or he may have run off from the pact. After finding himself on the streets of New York, the homeless dog will have to learn how to stay warm. No longer is his mom around to keep him warm by cuddling up with him. NO longer is the other pups around to roll up in a ball with him. He is all alone. The big city and the cold winds is his life now. The lonely pup finds a dirty back alley where it seems to be safe from cars. He searches the ground for any piece of food. He finds a left over piece of bread and calls this dinner. Now the pup needs to get warm so he crawls up behind some busted out trashy door. He rolls up in a ball and closes his eyes.
This is the life of the stray. Hopeless and sad, these animals either die of cold and starvation or they end up at a shelter. The lucky ones get a chance in a shelter but most shelters are too full to accommodate. Ross is hoping to help by raising money through a go fund me page for shelters. All proceeds will help the animal shelters provide more relief for these animals. Ross Abelow knows that it takes one person to start something. this is why he is starting the campaign. He hopes to raise the $5000. dollars necessary to put a dent in the homeless dog and cat problems in New York. Check out the go fund me page for Ross Abelow to see how you can help.

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.
Helane Morrison has been in the news recently for her slow ascension in her career. Project Eve recently wrote an article that gave some of her background and told her story. The article started out by giving some background information about Morrison. It discussed how she has worked for both the public and private sector. It also discussed that in both, she holds herself and those who work around her to high standards. The article then went on to say how refreshing this is in an industry that has been uncovered for being extremely corrupt and underhanded.
The article then went on to explain how dangerous investing could be because of this dishonestly. It then explains Morrison’s place in helping to make the world of investments a better place. The article described her early career and how many waves she was able to make. Because Morrison has been able to make a positive difference wherever she goes, she has been quickly given one promotion after the next. And because of her good work and her honest way of getting the work done, the SEC made Morrison the Regional Director and Head of Commission.
Helane is now a Chief Compliance Officer, General Counsel and Managing Director at Hall Capital Partners Limited Liability Company, as well as serving on the executive committee of the firm.

Morrison then went on to work in a variety of different positions with her various degrees.
Her first job was clerking for Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun and she also worked for Honorable Richard Posner, on the seventh circuit court of appeals. Morrison then went on to private practice. During the 80s and 90s, she worked at Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk and Rabkin in San Francisco. In the mid-90s, Morrison switched over to the public sector and worked as the head of enforcement at the SEC in San Francisco. It was after 3 years of this that she was given a promotion to head of the whole SEC office in San Francisco which she thrived in and was noted as one of the most influential people in the industry in this WSJ article.

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. 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).
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.
