The “Queen of Unicorns”, whom many call Doe Deere, is a Russian born entrepreneur, musician, and pop culture icon. She is the founder and owner of Lime crime, an extremely successful makeup company that is known for its strong social media presence, as well as modern-day marketing techniques. She is famously loved for being her own model, as she proudly wears her bold and flashy makeup herself (https://theweirdstore.net/blogs/the-weird-store/how-doe-deere-became-queen-of-the-unicorns). She first used this marketing strategy when she was just 13 years old when she first dipped her toes in the vast world of business and entrepreneurship. As a teenager, she started her first business in her home country of Russia selling temporary tattoos. At the time they were a hot item for Russian teenagers. Her classmates were quickly enticed to buy them after she used herself as a living model for the tattoos and showed her friends just how stylish and cool they were. Little did Doe Deere know, she would soon be using this same technique to successfully market and sell cosmetic products to thousands of young ladies via Instagram and the World Wide Web. A decade later she is the proud owner and founder of the widely loved and creatively brave cosmetic company, Lime Crime.

Doe Deere credits much of her career success and deep knowledge of marketing to the years she spent as a musician. Not only was she given the opportunity to meet her husband, but she was also able to learn a variety of skills that would eventually build her into the entrepreneur that she is today. Her husband is a big part of her life and she is thankful to have met him after she moved to New York when she was 17. Doe Deere met her husband when she began playing with him in a local band in New York City. Being in a band together not only grew there affections for one another, but it also taught them how to successfully collaborate and coexist in creative and business endeavors. They spent a lot of time in NYC marketing and enthusiastically promoting their band at the time. Doe Deere is happy for these years as she feels they equipped her with much of the skills and knowledge she needed to be a lucrative and prosperous entrepreneur.

She was first inspired to begin her a cosmetic company due to the lack of exciting and bright colors available in makeup during the early 2000s. While natural and boring colors were being heavily marketed, Doe Deere was actually searching for something more bold for her to wear herself. She began creating and compiling a variety of glossy, bright cosmetic products during this time and was shocked and excited to see how well-received they were. Although she began creating this makeup for herself, it eventually turned into a national trend, and girls all across the country were flocking to Doe Deere’s websites and social media pages in hopes of trying some of this new and trendy makeup for themselves. Lime Crime has become a monumental brand for women who desire to freely express their individuality without concern for others opinions.

 

PROTECTION OF CIVIL, HUMAN AND MIGRANT RIGHTS

The protection of rights of the groups is necessary for the society today. This brings out nationality and sense of goodwill. Fairness is what differentiates humans from an animal.

Humans have compassion. It is the reason why many organizations are playing an active role in the protection of these rights. Currently, there are many groups, recognized worldwide and celebrated for the achievements that they have made over the past.

International Migrants Rights Advocacy is an example of these groups. It was formed 20 years ago with the primary aim of helping others in the society.

They have concentrated heavily on migrants, having worked tirelessly to ensure that the migrants have their rights in whichever part of the world that they are going to. They have been participants in various important events involving their line of work. This includes the United Nations Summit on the immigrants.

The IMRA have worked in various protests that have been important in the getting the rights of particular groups realized.

The other group that is in the same line of work of defending rights of individuals is the Coalition for Human Immigrant Rights. This organization is California based and is not far much apart than the former.

This is because it also specializes in the rights of immigrant individuals and families. The group has striven hard enough to obtain a country that is united and fair to all people of whichever race, denomination or tribe. To have a society that accommodates everyone.

There is the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law which boasts of having over 50 years of successful functioning. The same cannot be said to many groups. The human right group was formed during the administration of John F Kennedy.

This was during a period where there was a lot of racial discrimination cases in America. The Principal goal of the group was to eradicate racism and promote unity among the society without ethnic or racial discrimination.

In the past years, there have not been many organizations that have been started by journalists. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin the co-founders of the Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media. It all started back with the reporting of the Sherrif.

They made a report without fear that exposed the individual who was covered at the grand jury proceedings. Later on, they were jailed due to the report that they had handed out. They were later released, and they sued the government. Fortunately, they won the case and were paid an enormous amount of money.

This capital that they garnered was then used in the formation of the Frontera Fund. This has been of great assistance to those who are looking to have their rights defended.

The two have come from a humble background and have gone an extra mile seeking to protect the rights of inmates. This can be seen as an extremity of justice among the two individuals. The Fontera Fund having successfully served for years, is now the face of human and civil rights.

How Boraie Development, LLC is improving the New Brunswick Skyline

There is a new Skyline being created in New Brunswick, and developers claim that the area is starting to look like New Jersey’s version of Cambridge. New Brunswick has been the home of the main campus of Rutgers University for some decades now. It was expected that being the headquarters of Middlesex County would help the Coty grow and expand. Unfortunately, for the past three decades, the City has been in some inexplicable stagnation regarding real estate development. The challenges have been a little overwhelming, for the City.

Some issues are common in all American Cities such as an increase in the population of foreigners. These could be people from other states or even other countries. Typically, a city develops when these people come in because they rent and buy real estate, boost the local markets and increase the cash flow. However, the situation seemed to be a little bit different in New Brunswick. People claim that there has been some level of neglect by the local authorities, a challenge that has led to the stagnation.

According to Rutgers, the decision that transformed the City was made in 1975. A local company, Johnson, and Johansson chose to stay in the city even after becoming profitable. It is the single decision that made all other local businesses that were up and coming realize that they did not have to run away from all the negative connotations that came from being in this city. The company did struggle for a while, but by the mid 80’s, they had stabilized.

Many people still feel that the progress being made by the City is slow, and this is changing, all thanks to one new addition to the game, Boraie Construction LLC. This company has been working on imaging and restructuring the entire commercial landscape of the town. The projects include the playgrounds, commercial buildings, and other recreational facilities. The development company’s management feels that even though the city has come a long way in development, there is still a lot that needs to be done to improve it. They are taking advantage of projects such as the renewal of the buildings, the expansion of Rutgers and the student population that it brings to the city, especially the millennials looking for academic and sports excellence.

Betsy DeVos is a Lady on a Mission

Many people who are successful in business tend to give for charitable causes, and Betsy DeVos is no different. She comes from a family that boasts of business success. Her husband, Dick Devos, used to be the CEO of Amway and her father-in-law was the founder of Amway. Her father, Edgar Prince, is the founder of Prince Corporation, a highly successful automotive parts dealer. These are impressive bloodlines indeed and Betsy herself is the present United States Secretary of Education. She has been active in politics since the early 1990’s. She served as the Republican National Committeewomen in her home state of Michigan, and as chairwomen of the Michigan Republican Party.

The other hats she has worn include chairwoman of the Alliance for School Choice as well as the All Children Matter PAC. Born and raised in Michigan, she grew up in Holland, Michigan and graduated from Calvin College with a B.A in Economics. Even in those early years, she showed a talent for politics by taking part in campus related political matters. After she married Dick DeVos she continued her interest in politics by either taking part in various causes or donating to the Republican party. In fact, she and her family are one of the largest contributors to the Republican party.

 

Philanthropic Work

It is not only in politics that Betsy has shown her generosity in fund raising as well as giving. She has shown equal enthusiasm for charitable causes also. Along with her husband, she founded the Dick & Betsy DeVos Family Foundation, which has given away millions of dollars towards many charitable causes. The areas in which donations are given are the ones the couple feels strongly about. These can be categorized into five main areas, mainly education, arts, leadership, community, and justice. To date, the foundation has given close to $140 million in donations.

Out of all the different types of causes, it is perhaps education that the DeVos Foundation has given the most to. This is not surprising because education has been close to their hearts even going back several decades. Therefore when she joined the federal government as Secretary of Education, it came as no surprise to those who knew her history and involvement in this field. We can also expect more and more good work from her in this very important area.
