More people are recognizing it as it grows and transforms the cosmetics world.
Doe Deere is well aware that she is different from the mainstream, and this is what she embraces. Few people have been able to make a name for themselves by duplicating the formula that everyone else created. Doe Deere recognized this, and she has made it her goal to let people know just how different she is from the mainstream. This gives people a completely different way to look at how she is evolving with products that may not be found anywhere else.
Few people are able to say that they can find a cosmetics company that also sells hair dye. For most companies this would not seem like a good combination. For Doe Deere, however, it makes perfect sense for people to consider this type of combination because many of her unicorn lipstick colors match the hair diet products that she is bringing to the market. All of this allows Doe Deere to expand the brand and reach a whole new customer base. There are some people that may have never been interested in the Lime Crime cosmetics. There are some people that may not have known about this at all. The fact that she has been able to add hair dye is going to eventually give her a chance to also attract those consumers that may not I have a need for lipstick. This is the best benefit of this type of company with an expanding line of products.
Doe Deere has managed to secure quite a large amount of customers because she has never wavered when it comes to her dedication for creating a brand. She has the ability to attract customers from many different walks of life and this is no coincidence.
There are a long list of products, and this is what gives her a chance to attract many different customers. She has promoted her boyfriend ferociously through her blog and YouTube videos. She has also brought in other guests to give people a better idea of how the product will look if someone other than herself was utilizing these products. All of this has given Doe Deere the ability to change perspectives when it comes to cosmetics. She has shifted forward and really taken ownership of her role as a cosmetics leader. She did not always have this type of power, but in time she became someone that others look to. Her confidence and being different has allowed her to lead without the fear that she is not doing what others are doing. She is someone that has her own ideas and theories so that makes it easier to attract customers.

March 28, 2018
Architecture is a complicated field that most people can’t fully wrap their heads around. People understand that it’s engineer-based and revolves around the concept of new buildings.

Thanks to organizations like the American Institute of Architects and people like Robert Ivy, regular people can learn about architecture.
Robert Ivy is the current Editor in Chief of the world’s most popular architectural journal, Architecture Record. The journal is that popular because of Robert Ivy’s brilliant leadership. His leadership and creativity earned him dozens of awards and honors throughout his career.

The evening of October 18th 2007 was very interesting for Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin. They were forced to leave their house in handcuffs and thrown into the back of an unidentifiable SUV that held Mexican plates. There home was located in Arizona Phoenix area where Jim had grown up. After all this happened they were booked apart and held in separate jails.
Arpaio; who claimed he was America’s Toughest Sheriff was the one who lead the arrests of these two. Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin were detained for writing a story in the Phoenix New Times the story was about Arpaio and his allies. Needless to say Arpaio hit his breaking point and felt he wanted to get even he had the two arrested and tried in court. Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin’s detainment made the whole nation roar, they were not too happy with this ending. Inevitably in the end the “dangerous” duo were released and set free in less than 24 hours after they were detained. According to the Ninth Circuit Court the detainment of these two was illegal and it went against their first amendment rights and abuse of power.
Even on top of all of this other illegal activity it was noted that the subpoenas served upon these two were actually invalid as well. This was the case because the prosecutor had skipped a step or two in the required legal procedures. Also it’s simply put that Lacey and Larkin were both arrested without a provable reason.
Soon after all these events took place the duo both received settlement money for the unjust actions taken against them. They use the settlement money most to help the Hispanic community when they receive the brunt of racial happenings. Claims have been made by these two that Arpaio has played a big part in giving Mexican’s a bad wrap. The two ended their interview by saying that of course they would stand by the Mexican migrants because they’re migrants as well.
Why did Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin Create the Frontera Fund?
Michael Lacey, son of a construction worker, first met his business partner Jim Larkin in college. When their school began voicing conservative views on student anti-war protests, they created their own voice in the form of a school paper. After the success they had with their college publication, they dropped out to create a real newspaper.
As owners of The Phoenix New Times, they were able to not only make a change in their local area, but raised public awareness on the immoral behavior of Maricopa County sheriff, Joe Arpaio. When Arpaio arrested the two journalists for content they published in their paper they all made national headlines. All over the country people were reading about Arpaio’s illegal actions in papers like USA Today, The New York Times and The Washington Post.
The public outcry lead to Lacey and Larkin being released almost immediately. After their release, they filed a multi million dollar lawsuit against Maricopa County and sheriff Arpaio, which they would go on to win. Nearly 4 million dollars richer, Lacey and Larkin decided to create two new organizations.
The Frontera Fund
The Frontera Fund provides money for charities such as the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona, which fights for rights and liberties for Arizona citizens. Their primary target are the Hispanics of Arizona that were targeted by Joe Arpaio though. The Frontera Fund website provides information for those who may be concerned with the Dream Act or other immigration laws. They also provide resources to the Arizona DREAM Act Coalition, American Immigration Council and many others.
Their New Publication
Along with The Frontera Fund, Lacey and Larkin have created a newspaper called Front Page Confidential. The intention of the paper is to raised awareness of political corruption: primarily Joe Arpaio.

Obsidian Energy: Harvesting Western Canada Resources
March 7, 2018
Obsidian Energy, formerly known as Penn West Petroleum, is making a comeback in the oil and petroleum industry. The rebranded company was unveiled in June 2017, and since their reveal, Obsidian Energy has been taking advantage of the oil and petroleum wells that they left behind in the western part of Canada. The company shrank after the oil and petroleum price crash, and the company which has more than thousands of employees are now only looking after a hundred. The new CEO of Obsidian Energy thought that it would be a great idea if they would be salvaging the remaining oil and petroleum wells that can be found in Western Canada. He believes that there is still an abundance of resources deep within the abandoned wells.
Obsidian Energy sent a team to verify if their oil and petroleum wells in the province of Alberta can still produce the resources that they need to bounce back. They had to test the soil and see if traces of oil and petroleum are present. The new management of the company is convinced that there are still oil and petroleum remaining deep within the wells and ordered their team to search for it. After weeks of testing the oil and petroleum wells, the team sent by Obsidian Energy found oil. They started to extract the remaining oil and petroleum in their abandoned wells, and they managed to get 31,000 barrels of oil in just a small area. Obsidian Energy knew that it would signal their rise in the industry once again, and ordered for more teams to extract the resources. View More Information Here.
Today, Obsidian Energy manages to extract 31,000 barrels of oil from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. They also grew to become a middle-sized oil and petroleum company. Obsidian Energy believes that their achievements are still considered small, compared to what Penn West Petroleum has accomplished. However, the company stated that they would continue to extract oil and petroleum in their wells until they managed to pay off all of their debts and the company poses real revenues and profits. Obsidian is optimistic that they will bounce back after the oil price crisis hit them.

Keep Calm and Make Capital Investments: Gregory Aziz and National Steel Car
March 3, 2018
National Steel Car was established in 1912 under the name Imperial Steel Car. For more than a decade NSC has been recognized by the TTX SECO for supplier excellence. Furthermore, NSC is the only railcar manufacturer in North America to obtain a 9001 certification by the International Organization for Standardization.
When a company starts to stray from its mission and business strategy, the management team is supposed to start steering the company back in the right direction. What happens, however, when the management team completely abandons their company and leaves it to die? For National Steel Car, this was almost a reality that they had to face. Luckily, entrepreneur and businessman Gregory James Aziz came to the rescue before the company went completely under.
National Steel Car had its share of problems in the 1970s and 1980s. As a manufacturer of railcars and rolling stock for freight trains, much of the success of the company depended on the economic environment of the railroads as a whole. When the trucking companies started to move in on the customers that had traditionally gone with rail traffic as their main source of transportation, the railroad industry started to suffer. They gradually declined and started to merge with each other to stay afloat. For suppliers, this meant there were fewer customers to sell to.
Any normal management team would see this and decide to change their strategy. Instead of doing that, however, the management team of National Steel Car decided to jump ship. They started stripping all of the capital out of the company to earn their returns. They thought there was no way that the company would be able to survive a blow like this, so they refused to invest any more money into it. When it seemed like National Steel Car was about to be gone forever, Gregory J. Aziz purchased it from the owners in 1994.
Greg Aziz knew exactly how to handle this situation. He worked with management to come up with a new business strategy that focused one engineering and design of a new, high-quality car instead of one that was just low-cost to build. The market had been wanting higher-quality cars, and the low-quality ones that had previously been built by NSC were causing issues for customers, driving them away. When they got wind that National Steel Car was starting to increase their quality again, customers started to come back. To keep up with the new demand, Gregory Aziz put more money into the company and purchase new machines and equipment to increase production capacity. Get More Information Here.
In the end, National Steel Car survived this period of uncertainty because the new owner and CEO, Gregory J. Aziz, kept a cool head and did not abandon his post. Management teams in every industry could learn a valuable lesson from the actions of Greg Aziz.

The Knowledge and Know-How of Gregory James Aziz
February 27, 2018
Businessman and investor Gregory James Aziz has had a storied past. His experiences have helped him build up several industries and save several companies from utter destruction and bankruptcy. His ability to make connections across borders and strategize ways out of conundrums makes him a valuable asset to any company that hires him. Greg Aziz truly is a titan of industry.
Greg Aziz was born in Ontario, Canada and attended the University of Western Ontario until 1971. From there he went to his family’s food company, Affiliated Foods. The first few years of his career were rather uneventful. Once he was in charge of making strategic decisions, however it became clear that he was a step ahead of the rest. He worked tirelessly to expand the supply network for Affiliated Foods from just intracontinental suppliers to suppliers from Europe and South America. He brought in new and exotic foods that customers wanted, and with this attracted more customers from different parts of the globe. When he left after 16 years at Affiliated Foods, the company had been completely transformed into a leader in the foods business.
In the 1980s, Gregory Aziz decided to get into investment banking. Always one who was curious with how businesses worked, he worked with several clients to determine the best needs for their business. However, his heart was not in this business, and he decided to save up his money and purchase a new business to get back in the management game. His target was National Steel Car.
In 1994, Aziz purchased the company, a producer of railcars for railroads and private companies. NSC had been in a slump in recent years. The previous management team did not know how to handle a worsening business environment and left a shell of a company without much capital or value. To keep the company alive, Aziz poured cash into new capital projects and the hiring of additional personnel.
Aziz decided that the old way of doing things would no longer work, and that the company needed to focus on what the customers wanted in order to succeed: quality. Aziz hired new engineers and designers to work with customers and get them the best, safest, and highest-quality railcars that ever came out of National Steel Car. Now NSC is one of the only rolling stock companies left in North America. It had contracts with every major railroad and is doing extremely well. This is all thanks to the knowledge and know-how of Gregory James Aziz. View More Information Here.
