Larkin and Lacey Took it right to Tyranny

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have won my respect. And let me be the first to tell you, that is not an easy thing to do. You see, I hate evil. I hate tyranny. The problem is, we see far too much of it here in the United States of America. It is mostly shown toward immigrants who have crossed our border looking for a better life.

The reason Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have won my respect is because they actually empower people who believe that immigrants should have the same rights that you and I have.

Michael Lisa and Jim Larkin have created the Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund so that they can continue mentoring those who believe and civil liberties, as well as the right to free speech, and the immigrants right to come and start a better life.

The reason that this fund was able to start is that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin won a lawsuit against the Maricopa County. This happened after Sheriff Joe Arpaio tried to silence them for using their right of free speech.

You see, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin found out some incriminating evidence about Maricopa County’s beloved Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

They discovered, and reported, that Sheriff Joe Arpaio had systematically profiled Latinos and rewarded his police force for bringing in people of that ethnicity. To show his cruelty, Sheriff Joe Arpaio with lock these Latinos and cold and unhealthy and unsanitary jail cells.

Some Latinos suffered so horribly underneath his treatment, that they died in the custody of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin made this known, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio wanted to silence them. Learn more about Michael and Lacey: https://about.me/michael-lacey

Sheriff Joe Arpaio was able to secure a search warrant for the homes of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. His one goal was to get there and acquire the data of their reports concerning his illegal activities.

He wanted to destroy them so that they could not prove what he had done. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin did not give that data over to him. In response to this, Sheriff Joe Arpaio arrested them.

This illegal arrest would be the grounds for the settlement and lawsuit that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin brought to the Maricopa County. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would win a little over three million dollars and use that money to start the Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund.


Imran Haque is One of North Carolina’s Top Doctors for a Reason

Imran Haque is one of the top doctors in North Carolina, having served the rural areas of the Tar Heel state for more than fifteen years. Dr. Imran Haque owns his own practice, Horizon Internal Medicine, from which he operates in Ramseur and Asheboro. Haque specializes in cosmetic procedures, although offers a wide range of preventative care options and treatment of everyday illnesses.

The Caribbean islands were the first place where Imran Haque learned medicine, enrolling in Universidad Iberoamericana in 1994, from which he graduated with a medical doctorate in 1998 with honors. Although many recent graduates of Caribbean medical schools have problems finding open residency spots, Imran Haque secured a position at the University of Virginia’s internal medicine residency program quickly. In 2001, he completed the three years of residency necessary to become a free-standing doctor, immediately moving to rural North Carolina.

Dr. Imran Haque first became interested in internal medicine because he enjoyed seeing individuals and families over extended periods of time, rather than specializing in a niche area in which there weren’t many repeat patients, at least over the course of several years. After landing a position practicing internal medicine at another practice, he soon created Horizon Internal Medicine, within months expanding to two locations.

In addition to the many cosmetic services Dr. Imran Haque provides his trusting patients, he offers weight management and medical weight loss regimens, diabetes management, and annual wellness exams.

Diabetes is one of the most popular diseases in the United States, although managing diabetes correctly results in a largely normal lifestyle. Imran Haque provides this comfort to his diabetic patients, offering a unique blend of prescription medications, insulin administration methods, and exercise plans. Weight management procedures closely follow suit, including exercise, medications to keep hunger at a manageable level, and tender love and car from Imran Haque himself.

Don Ressler Taking Fabletics To New Heights Of Success

The athletic wear segment for women has always been a highly competitive sector with many new brands coming up to woo the consumers. However, even with the presence of so many brands in the market, the athleisure segment always had a wide gap between style and affordability. It is where Fabletics, one of the leading athleisure brands in the market today comes in. Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg, two of the most successful serial entrepreneurs in the United States, have been looking for a new niche to venture in when they noticed the rapidly increasing athleisure segment. It is how the Fabletics came into being. The primary aim of launching Fabletics was to ensure that the women have a brand they can trust with both the quality as well as the pocket pinch. Don Ressler wanted women to be able to buy athletic wear without having to spend a fortune, and thanks to his years of experience in the fashion industry, he was able to do so with high accuracy.

 

Don Ressler noticed that most of the athletic wear brands in the market offered products at overpriced rates and the brands that offered at a meager price didn’t provide quality products at all. It made it difficult for the women with a budget to buy quality products that they wanted. Fabletics, from the very beginning, focused on not what the competitors are doing, but on what the customers are looking for. Focusing on the customers’ need helped Fabletics to come out with a range of athletic wear for women that were attractive, made of quality fabric, and was affordable at the same time. Don Ressler knew that making a mark in the highly competitive and saturated fashion market; it is important to have a familiar face that would represent the brand. Thus, Kate Hudson, one of the most celebrity actresses in Hollywood, was asked to join Fabletics as a co-founder. It helped the brand to become aspirational for women as well as popular among the masses.

 

Kate Hudson brought with her tremendous experience in public relations, communication, and fashion. These are the qualities that Don Ressler was looking for to help Fabletics reach out to a wider audience and make Fabletics, a major brand in the athleisure market. The company also used online marketing and data analytics technologies to help build a brand that can target the audience in an efficient manner, which in turn, would assist in improving sales and revenue considerably.


The Two Guys Behind the Fabulous Brand TechStyle

Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler founded Techstyle Fashion Group, the company behind JustFab, Fabletics, and ShoeDazzle. Both guys didn’t know much about fashion but they did have the determination to succeed. With their past knowledge of consumer needs and wants, they weaved that into the fashion industry.

 

Adam Goldenberg’s first company was called Gamers Alliance, a company he started when he was just 15-years-old. Goldenberg was able to sell the advertising hub for gaming websites. He was able to sell the company to Intermix Media in 1999, where would eventually he would become the V.P. of strategic planning. He left high school to take that job and by 20, he was the C.O.O. of Intermix.

 

Similar to Goldenberg, Don Ressler also sold his business to Intermix in 2011 and then joined the Intermix company. Ressler sold his website, FitnessHeaven.com to Intermix and by this time, he was already well-versed in raising capital for online companies, According to Ressler, this is what led him to the fashion industry.

 

Naturally, Ressler and Goldenberg developed a friendship while working at Intermix together. Their natural entrepreneurial spirits led them to start Intelligent Beauty, an e-commerce company, in 2006. From there they continued to create successful brands. The started thinking about a new way to for consumers to shop online and with their current experience with trends, consumer insights and fashion, they saw a need for finding personalized fashions.

 

JustFab was Techstyle’s first company. The membership based company gives members the option to switch which clothing items they have delivered to their homes. Venture capitalist Matrix Partners funded JustFab, along with Intelligent Beauty. A rebranding period in 2016 caused JustFab to go from JustFab to TechStyle. Goldenberg and Ressler based this decision on their knack for merging fashion and technology.

 

TechStyle stands out from the competition because of this reason. TechStyle also pays attention to its social responsibility. The company takes a moment to think about how it can improve the lives of everyday women by creating clothes and accessories that aid in healthy, confident lifestyles.

 

In addition, TechStyle is active in the community by having a hand in various projects and charity events. One charity event is right up their alley, the Cinderella Project is a charity group which donates gowns, dresses and accessories to low-income students who would like to attend their prom fabulously.

 

Ressler and Goldenberg continue to focus on making TechStyle a leading brand for clothing and accessories. TechStyle brands include JustFab, FabKids, ShoeDazzle, and Fabletics. Their 4 million members are in 10 countries. TechStyle’s mission statement is to make members feel and look great in active wear. http://www.hudl.com/profile/4913266/adam-goldenberg

Kim swung by her local beauty supply store in Japan and picked up a few products to put to the test. One product that she purchased is the face roller. This face roller is supposed to be used on a clean face. The user is told to roll it across freshly cleansed skin for about ten minutes. Kim admits that if feels similar to a face massage that it goes between relaxing and slightly annoying. Kim Dao did not feel as though this product would really make a difference in her appearance or in relaxing her facial muscles (https://www.crunchbase.com/person/kim-dao). The next product that Kim Dao reviewed is an eye brow template. You place the template on your eyebrow and use an eye shadow brush with your desired shade of brown or black to dust product along your exposed eye brow. When Kim Dao removed the template she had a perfectly darkened and enhanced looking brow. Kim actually liked this product and felt as though it worked well. Kim admits that for people who are not great at darkening their eye brows this product works well. A third product Kim used was a double sided eye lid tape. This gets applied to the crease of the eye to help make the eyes appear larger. Kim did not like this product, she said it was rather annoying and uncomfortable and she would not use this every day.
