JustFab and the Buyer’s Revolution

JustFab represents the new way of retailing. These changes are taking people away from the malls in America and putting them back with friends and family having fun together; not wasting gas and time shopping in brick and mortar stores.

JustFab was founded in California, which has always led the nation in things new and dynamic. The founders of JustFab are Adam Goldberg and Don Ressler have created a business with style, interest, and choices to suit the stylish woman of today. The fashion offerings range from cutting edge to mainstream and the shoes, boot, bags, and clothes are highlighted in fashion settings showcasing rising stars and the exotically beautiful Angie Harmon.

The business model is based on a subscription service which allows JustFab to offer low prices for products which are high quality and stylish. The photography is professional and enticing; some offerings beg to be purchased and worn by happy and stylish customers of JustFab. It might be impossible for any woman to look at the website without making a purchase.

This on-line consumer revolution is definitely affecting the retail industry. The days of the brick and mortar store may soon be over. There is evidence of some malls, built in advance of the era of the super malls, being turned into offices and even warehouses. These strip malls would become vacated by shoppers when compared to the variety and excitement of the super-malls, and the lure of having more choices thanks to the size and layout of the super-mall. Those behemoth affairs had multiple choices for dining and everything retail. The strip mall may have had one of each type of store but the mega-mall gave shoppers choices. However they required walking from the huge parking lots, sometimes in bad weather, to store entrances and ambitious shoppers even walked the entire loop inside the weatherproof malls. Some older nearby residents of these super-malls were using the enclosed malls for their own gym; for walking exercise.

JustFab, as a subscription on-line discount retailer, offers the fun of fashion shopping and the experience of imagining yourself as an Angie Harmon attending a gala opening. The lure is here and the presentation by JustFab on their website is spot on, accurate and formatted like a woman’s style magazine. JustFab has the idea, the website, and the formula for success.

The European Union is Crumbling warns George Soros

George Soros is Europe’s most successful billionaires and business icon. Born in Budapest Hungary in August 1930, Soros attended the London school of economics. He obtained a bachelor’s degree in economics and a master of science in the same field. Also, he holds a BSc. and Masters in philosophy in the same institution. George Soros holds dual citizenship for both Hungary and the United States.

He started his business career in the United States, where he rose to be the world’s notable economists. Also, George Soros’ prowess in investments, and writing of various books and articles on economics, politics and business earned him profound respect in the global economic platform. He is founder and chair of Soros Fund Management and Open Society Foundation. Additionally, Soros is a notable philanthropist; he established the Central European University. Furthermore, he financed the education of black students in South Africa during the apartheid regime.

European Economic Situation and the Refugee Crisis

George Soros’s vast experiences in economic and political issues are undoubtedly recognized globally. Consequently, he has addressed various forums and conferences on http://www.biography.com/people/george-soros-20926527 on socio-political and economic problems. Additionally, he provides solutions to some critical economic issues that help in sustaining world top economies including China and the United States. Furthermore, George Soros is seen as an economic prophet as he previously predicted various economic trends that came to pass.

In an interview with the CNBC, the top economist and investor warned of a crisis in the European Union that might lead to its collapse. George Soros stated that the European Union has to move fast and inject a significant amount of money to solve the refugee problem. Also, in an essay in The New York Times, Soros warned of unfolding humanitarian crisis in Greece

To adequately address the problem, European leaders need sufficient funding. Spending large sums of money at the outset would allow them to respond more efficiently to the refugee crisis. Civil wars and terror groups on http://www.nytimes.com/topic/person/george-soros have pushed over a million immigrants from Africa and the Middle East to Europe in 2015. Refugees are driven by hope for a better life, peace and economic restoration in Europe.

Currently, a deal has been struck that will see people coming into Greece illegally being sent back to Turkey. It is when their asylum request is rejected. Also, for every person sent back to Turkey, the European Union will have to take in one refugee from Syria currently in Turkish camps. Soros estimated the number of refugees that Europe can accommodate annually is up to 500,000. However, European countries should ensure that those genuinely seeking asylums would not be turned away.

For efficient operation on the crisis, the European Union requires an estimated £ 30 billion a year. Failure to fix the problem will cost the Union even more. It would be for example cause the collapse of the Schengen system on open internal borders among 26 European countries. To achieve the funding, Soros called for an amendment of Europe’s Multi annual Financial Framework and long-term financial plan to increase VAT contributions.

An Effort To Save New York’s Strays Is Underway

There is a serious problem in New York City with stray animals on the streets. Stray animals are forced to wander the streets with no permanent place to stay. In addition to not having a home, they also are often without other basic needs, such as healthcare, food, and vaccinations. This puts both the stray animals and human residents of the city at risk. While shelters in the city try to care for as many animals as possible, they can’t care for all the stray animals. The reason for this is that they don’t have enough funding. However, there is a solution to the problem. Bringing more funding to shelters would greatly lessen the problem. Ross Abelow plans to bring money to the shelters, which is going to lessen the problem in the city.

Winter is the worst season for strays of the northeast. The temperatures in New York City and other regions of the northeast dive far below freezing. In fact, they can dip far into the single digits. Temperatures this cold can make it impossible for many strays to survive. Sadly, temperatures were incredibly harsh this year in New York City. However, something different happened this year. The problem has not been ignored. Instead, an effort was started to bring the strays indoors. Ross Abelow, a well known lawyer, has worked to get the shelters funding. This funding is going to help provide for them in the shelters.

Ross Abelow has made use of one of the internet’s most well known ways to get funding. He has gone through Go Fund Me to get the money. This website allows users to create a goal for the amount of funding they seek. Then, people on the internet can donate money electronically to the campaign. Ross Abelow has worked to get several thousand dollars to give to the shelters. The amount of money is not massive, but it is likely to help a significant number of animals out. Shelters will be able to accommodate a larger number of stray animals.

Ross Abelow has the advantage of already having his name out there. His legal practice has a good reputation, and many people in the city have heard of him. Due to his widely known status, people will be more likely to find his campaign and donate. His law practice has benefited many people, as he has worked to win cases on both business and family related legal issues.

It seems there’s always a new hair product on the amazon and ebay online market these days. More and more companies are including natural ingredients int their shampoos and conditioners, but Wen is perhaps one of the most well-known names when it comes to hair care. Bustle’s Emily McClure tried Wen hair conditioner for seven days, and had some pretty interesting things to say about it. If you’re on the fence about trying the product, this review may help.

According to the bottle instructions, individuals with long hair need to use up to 32 pumps of conditioner! After using the product for the first time, Emily noticed that her hair felt thicker right away.

Over the next few days, McClure said that her was was oilier, especially at the roots, but her hair was smooth. She did notice that her tresses lost their volume a little sooner than normal as well. By the fourth day, she was in a rush, and didn’t get a chance to wash her hair that morning. Her coif was greasy, and when she added curls to her hair, they fell flat pretty quickly.

Near the end of the week, McClure went out with friends, and they commented on how shiny her hair was. Overall, she recommended WEN hair conditioner for women who wash and style their hair daily. McClure also says that the product is ideal for naturally dry or thin hair.

 

 

Dick DeVos: Maintaining Bonds and Strengthening Ties

Dick DeVos has thrown his support behind Senator Marco Rubio of Florida. With the departure of former Florida Governor, Jeb Bush, from the race for the Republican nomination, Sen. Rubio seemed to be the best choice for Mr. DeVos to endorse, as he and his family have been a part of the Florida community for many years. While Michigan is home to the DeVos family the Orlando Magic basketball team are also part of their family and they maintain homes in the Vero Beach, Florida area.

Mr. DeVos’s endorsement of Marco Rubio is a continuation of their relationship going back to the mid-2000s when they met while trying to open the way for a larger school choice for people. While he waited to give his endorsement, Mr. DeVos felt that Marco Rubio was the right choice, and this seems to fall in line with the families philanthropic principles as shown by their most recent reports of giving.
According to an article in Michigan Live, the DeVos family, including patriarch Richard Devos & wife, as well as Dick’s brothers, having given a lifetime total of $1.2 billion not including their political donation. More recent totals include $94 million for the year 2014 and close to $91 million for 2013. The article states that “In total, the DeVoses donated $90.9 million in 2013, with 48 percent going to education, 27 percent to health and community services, 13 percent to churches or faith-based organizations, and 12 percent to arts and culture.”   Dick weighs in on the House of Cards episode here in an exclusive interview to tell his portion of the happenings.
With his support of Marco Rubio for President, Dick DeVos has continued a tradition of leadership that he has continued to show throughout his lifetime. From helping the family business, Amway, in its humble beginnings in his childhood basement, to diving head first into the thick of things for the company when most young men would be enjoying the first years of college, to becoming a vice-president at 29 with a responsibility that covered 18 countries as this Amway heir has done, Dick has had an impressive career. He was even offered the position of ambassador to the Netherlands by George Bush, which he graciously declined to focus his efforts on his business at the Windquest Group and his dedication to making the state of Michigan as successful as possible.

Glad to see the Grand Rapids area make another “best of” list! Thank you all for your role in making our city great.

Wikipedia Editors Are Quick To Flag Anything That Violates the Guidelines

Wikipedia is the website that almost everyone heads to when they want to know something; 500 million people visit the site each month. Thousands of volunteer writers and editors contribute to Wikipedia, in a cooperative effort to maintain an unbiased repository of knowledge. There’s no qualification or test required for Wikipedia writers and editors; anyone can submit an entry or edit an existing entry, so occasionally, edits that don’t follow Wikipedia’s best practices slip through, such as recent changes to actor Leonardo DiCaprio’s Wikipedia filmography page. An overzealous fan was so excited that the actor finally won an Oscar that he or she edited the page with text that violated Wikipedia’s language and neutrality rules. While the fan didn’t harm the actor’s reputation, and the edits were quickly removed, the incident illustrates the fact that Wikipedia editors quickly remove anything that violates the site’s guidelines. 

While Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t need a Wikipedia page to appear more prestigious, most businesses do. A Wikipedia entry is a non-promotional online mention that usually ranks in one of the top three spots in searches for the business’s name. Despite Wikipedia’s policy of allowing anyone to create an entry, some people have a problem following the strict formatting and style guidelines required so that editors won’t flag the page for removal. Business owners or public figures that need to make a Wikipedia page can have Get Your Wiki create an expertly written page that matches the style of other Wikipedia entries. 

Professional Wikipedia business page creation done by Wiki experts for hire provide a valuable service for business owners who don’t have the time to learn Wikipedia’s formatting and citation rules and then write an unbiased article about their business. It’s a time-consuming and often frustrating process to create a business page on Wikipedia; that is why quite a few entrepreneurs hire Wiki writers to create their Wikipedia entry or update a Wiki page for their company.
