During his tenure as the CEO of the company, Trabuco greatly improved the workings of the company and the services that they provide. The company is one of the few that stands out for offering excellent customer service and the improvement of that can be attributed to the plans that Trabuco instated.

With the ideas and developments that Trabuco brought along, the bank was finally able to rise up and reach the number one spot it had been hoping for. Because of this, Trabuco is widely considered to be one of the most notable Presidents of the company.

Doe Deere on how her makeup comes from her soul

Trendsetter and fashionista Doe Deere is changing to world of makeup one happy customer at a time. She launched Lime Crime her cosmetic line in 2008 and was one of the first ever to sell it exclusively online. She was born and raised in Russia but flew over to New York City to pursue a music career and also studied fashion design. Lime Crime offers a number of products including “criminally coveted” lipsticks, loose pigments, eye-shadow palettes, glittery lip gloss, nail polish, and rainbow-colored liquid liners. All of their products are vegan and cruelty-free certified by Leaping Bunny and PETA the well known animal activist group. Ms. Deere currently lives in Los Angeles, CA with her husband and cats. It is also where the Lime Crime offices are located.


Her makeup line was inspired by her creative spirit. She was starting her own fashion clothing line and could not find makeup to match her outfits. The makeup at that time was all about looking natural and did not suit her vision, that is why she created her own brand. It combined her two loves, makeup and fairy tales. The official Lime Crime mascot is a Unicorn, and Doe is called the “Unicorn Queen.” It is bright, colorful, imaginative, and supports her love of animals by being vegan and cruelty-free. The Founder and Chief Executive Officer has experience a lot of success with her cosmetic line, inspiring people from all walks of life to express their individuality in the cosmetics they put on their face. With a little help of good publicity and online makeup tutorials, Doe got her business off the ground and running. It was a huge hit and continues to grow tremendously. When she was attending the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and starting her own line creating her own makeup came forefront instead of the fashion line, it wasn’t what she thought was her first passion. It was a time of self exploration for Doe. Luckily for her it was a very smart choice and has worked out very well.


One marketing strategy that Doe Deere suggests is always listen to what people have to say about your products and try to improve them. She also says to follow what you are passionate about. She loves to inspire up and coming female entrepreneurs reach their potential. Deere has attended Vegas Nay’s Stardust Tour and PHAMExpo where she can mentor and inspire these women to reach for the stars. When asked what makes her successful Doe says living by the motto that beauty should make you feel beautiful is very important. She wants her makeup to inspire, empower, and bring out the best in a person. She also focused on a niche that was not so readily available at the time. Being a cruelty-free and vegan fit that niche and was at the core of her value system. Doe Deere looks forward to the future by creating new lines of makeup with Generation Z in mind. They are the fully digital generation and will be purchasing makeup online more so than any other group of people.

Robert Ivy On Architecture And Its Role In Promoting Public Health

“We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us.” Winston Churchill
Robert Ivy, CEO of the American Institute of Architects, in recent posts, advocates for what Winston Churchill suggests in the above quote.

Ivy maintains that how buildings are built can improve our well-being and public health. His stance is that architecture has such a profound effect on our health that it needs to be incorporated into medical and public health education. He has a few examples to validate his position.

AIA is a non government organization in US that focuses on developing and improving the architectural industry. They are combining public health with architectural designs that needed in US. In founding this organization, they created a huge amount of development in this sector. With almost 90,000 members, they headquartered in Washington DC.

Reducing Obesity Through Design
The Center for Disease Control has an article on its website entitled “Healthy Eating Design Guidelines for School Architecture.” These architectural recommendations were used in the construction of the Buckingham County Primary and Elementary School in Dillwyn, Virginia. This pilot project, a collaboration between architects and public health scientists, promises to lead to new national strategies to address childhood obesity.

Follow AIA on Twitter

Promoting Healing Through Design
Proponents of biophilic design advocate that buildings designed with biophilia concepts in mind (the love of life and living systems) can reduce stress, improve well-being, and promote healing. The recently completed Seattle Children’s Hospital expansion integrates biophilic design elements. There are expansive views of the Puget Sound, curvilinear walkways, and colorful nature scenes throughout the building. All of it was designed to promote well-being and healing for the patients and visitors of the facility.

Alzheimer’s Care Through Design
An element of biophilic design is an abundance of natural light or full spectrum artificial light sources. The School of Architecture and the School of Gerontology at the University of Southern California paired up to assess the effect of natural lighting on patients with Alzheimer’s. It is expected that the full spectrum lighting will have a positive impact on their sleep patterns and will improve some behavior problems. This research is expected to spur the development of design recommendations for elder care facilities.

Design and Well Being
With these examples of a school designed to prevent obesity, a medical facility designed to promote healing, and Alzheimer facilities using natural light therapy, Robert Ivy is an articulate advocate for the role of architecture in public health. “Design has played an integrated role in public health throughout the course of history…” said Robert Ivy. When asked about building designs that can improve a person’s health, he answered, “It opens up a whole new understanding of what design professionals should be doing….in terms of well-being, health, and potential, design and architecture can be very powerful.” For more information on Robert Ivy and role of architecture in sustainability and public health, please go to

How Sahm Adrangi Has Made Money Shorting Firms In The U.S. And Abroad

Kerrisdale Capital Management is a hedge fund firm located in New York City. It was founded by entrepreneur Sahm Adrangi in 2009. After graduating from Yale in 2003 he worked for three other firms in the industry over the course of four and a half years. He wanted to work on his own, though, so he put together $1 million including his parent’s money, his own, plus some other people he knew and launched his own company.

Sahm Adrangi directs the hedge fund at his company as its chief investment officer. His first big score came when he was just 30-years-old. He says that he didn’t have any grand insight into Chinese companies but looking at a number of them that were trading on U.S. markets there was something with them that just wasn’t right. He researched the companies and came to the decision to short a number of them. After he published his research on his blog and some investment-dedicated websites other investors read what he had to say. Once they confirmed his opinion these companies stocks dropped like a rock, making his hedge fund a lot of money.

As an example of one of these companies, Sahm Adrangi researched China Education Alliance and discovered that this company, then worth $150 million, was nothing but a hoax. They claimed to have 1,200 students and 17 up-to-date classrooms but in fact they were all empty. They also claimed to have many online students but their website was a broken link. Once other investors saw this the value of the company plummeted to less than $25 million in value and was delisted by federal authorities.

Today, Sahm Adrangi is shorting companies in an industry he has a lot of familiarity with, biotechnology. He’s presently shorting Prothena because he says that their AL amyloidosis drug candidate is a big failure without any promise. Earlier in 2017 he took a short position on Bavarian Nordic as well, a cancer drug researcher. Adrangi says their long-running study on a cancer vaccine was essentially garbage with no chance of working.

Elysium Health’s Outlook on Health Science

Elysium Health is new health startup in the supplement industry. Founded by the MIT research professor Dr. Leonard Guarente, Elysium Health seeks to instill confidence in the public through its evidence-based dietary supplements that help people live healthier, longer.

Elysium Health collaborates with world-class scientific experts to guide its research. These scientists come from prestigious universities such as Harvard and Cambridge. Dr. Guarente himself has significant experience researching the genetic and molecular causes of aging.

Elysium Health’s first product is a daily supplement called Basis. The supplement used two ingredients, nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene, to raise levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is an essential coenzyme to energy creation, DNA protection, circadian rhythms, and many other critical cellular functions. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline naturally and those functions break down. Basis restores higher levels of NAD+ and supports cellular health as a result.

Basis is clinically proven to raise levels of NAD+ by 40%. A clinical study in 2016 involved 120 people who were divided into three equal groups. One group took the daily recommended dose of Basis, another took double the recommended dose of the supplement, and the third took a placebo. After several weeks, the group which took the recommended daily dose of Basis had their NAD+ levels rise by an average of 40%.

Basis is vegan, vegetarian, nut- and gluten-free.

Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website and the supplement comes in several cost packages. A single jar of the supplement costs $60, containing a month’s worth of Basis. A monthly subscription to Basis costs $50. And prepaid twelve-month or six-month subscriptions reduce the price per jar to between $40 and $45.

Jordan Lindsey Forex: Losing Does not Make You a Loser

Success and failure are like fraternal twins. They share the same origin yet have different characteristics. In many of life’s endeavors, the outcome will be either one or the other. However, forex traders must not view their trading results in this way. Forex trading is a business, not a contest. Your objective is to make money, and you can still do that even if you have more losing trades than winning trades.

Your win-loss ratio is secondary to your profit to loss ratio on any given trade. By programming into your trading plan a rate of 1.5 to 1 favoring your profit margin, you can ensure that your losses will always be half the size of your wins. In other words, a trader could lose two trades for each winning trade, yet manage to break even.

Mr. Jordan Lindsey, the founder of JCL Capital, advises every forex trader to trade with a plan which works. At the very least your trading plan should respect the fundamental truth that you cannot be profitable unless your winning trades dwarf your losing trades. It does not matter how often you win if your wins are tiny, and your losses are gargantuan. You will lose money until you correct the leak.

Jordan Lindsey has shared with traders for years a straightforward approach for taking a $1,000 forex account and trading it up to a million dollar account within ten years. It all starts with a plan which first requires that traders learn to trade profitably. Once you achieve 7 percent monthly growth and continue compounding those earnings, you will double your account year over year. After ten years you will be sitting on $1,000,000.

Achieving profitability requires that you refine your trading methodology. If you can detect your edge in the market, and continuously exploit it, you can not help but join the club of consistently profitable traders (CPTs). One piece of the puzzle is to contain your losses. Keep them small and let your wins be as huge as possible. Even the most successful traders have losing trades, but they trade to win by limiting their losses. Jordan Lindsey has emphasized execution and follow-through as the keys to success. You can trust that he is correct.

Waiakea Water: The Change the World Needs

The water bottle has become the leading industry in the contribution of destroying the environment. It is hard to have fun on the beach if all there is, is used up water bottles lying on the ground. Did you know that a survey in the USA showed that among the 50 billion water bottles that were used last year, only 12 billion were recycled? This means that more than 38 billion bottles are out there degrading the environment.

Despite the constant campaigns on conserving the environment, many individuals still lack the discipline to dispose of the bottles in the bins. Waiakea water, a bottled water industry based in Hawaii has come up with a long-term solution.

The firm is launching degradable plastic bottles. These bottles are said to decay in 15 years’ time. Although this may seem non-effective, in the long run, it is very powerful as it is going to reduce the accumulation of water bottles in the environment. Some years to come the environment will have recovered from this problem permanently. The Waiakea water brand also uses vehicles with low emission of gases to distribute their water.

The Waiakea water is also involved in humanitarian activities. For every liter of water that is purchased, they donate a week’s supply water in Malawi. This is not all, approximately 3% of the company’s revenue goes to the humanitarian work.

The Waiakea water has unique minerals due to its filtration process. It is purely volcanic, and many customers find that factor very cool. The pH of the water, as well as its electrolyte, are also well leveled. Another feature that has led to the popularity of the water is the fact that it is manufactured in Hawaii. Many people associate the Hawaii products with natural products.

Final Verdict

The water bottled companies are valued at $100 billion. This shows the extent that the industry will affect the environment if no action is taken.

It is the responsibility of everyone to take care of the environment. The best way to do this is by consuming Waiakea water and encouraging others to do the same.
