Huffington Post Writes About Slyce And Their Technology

Slyce Expansion Could Help Wedding Industry

The field is relatively new, but it is used by a large portion of the people who enjoy online shopping. Online shopping and the online retail industry have changed immensely over the last few decades. Online shopping itself is rather new, but it grew significantly once home computers became a staple in most households. Then, the invention of the smart phone created an online market place that did not have the same rough edges that the home computer placed upon it. The smart phone made it so that any person with an internet connection could conduct their shopping any place they choose.

Slyce takes the online shopping industry one step further by allowing consumers to search for their purchases without even typing a single word. The user can simply open up the Slyce application in order to conduct their online shopping purchases. The application allows the user to take a picture of any object in their immediate surroundings in order to conduct their search. The user has other alternatives to typing keywords besides just taking a picture of the object. The user can simply take a picture of a barcode or QR code, or the user can take a picture of an actual picture of the object. With all these options to choose from, online shopping just got easier and more convenient than ever before.

An article from the Huffington Post discussed what uses the visual search company Slyce could employ for the wedding industry. Folks who are about to get married often will set up a gift registry. This can be a fun experience, but it is often tiresome because most retailers that have gift registries don’t know how to use them.

If Slyce was able to enter the wedding registry arena, they could seriously upgrade this industry. Imagine going into a store to register for your event, and instead of getting a scanner from the front desk, you use your phone because it has scanning capabilities. It won’t be long until Slyce has entered this market, and they will surely make it better with their state of the art tech

I enjoy new products and ideas and this company has come to deliver. New techniques highlighted on their blog caught my eye immediately. Hairsplitting is a striking way to do hair. Color is everywhere and attention getting glitter is there to dazzle.

Aside from hair ideas, a makeup line to impress is on the menu. Lipstick in an array of colors allows expression in many different genres. Lime Crime’s Unicorn lipstick comes in some flirty, whimsical shades that dare to flatter. The sky is the limit with color this diverse. The Velvetines collection offers a marvelous gift set that is perfect for giving. They also offer a quality line of eye shadows in palettes to please. The liquid eye liner comes in colors I have not seen anywhere else.

Another great perk of this first-class company is that they didn’t just stop at great products. They go the extra mile to bring you products that are cruelty free and vegan. The Lime Crime Twitter is extremely proud of that fact. A company that shows some ethics and cares about living things is refreshing.

Soros supports liberal PAC to woo Latinos

 

A recent story in the New York Times. says George Soros will be giving $5 million toward a $15 million campaign by Democrats this fall to sway Latino voters. Latinos often do support Democrats, but liberals believe they have an opportunity to get even more votes after Republicans have taken stands this year that seem against them.

This comes on the heels of Republican front runner Donald Trump calling Latino immigrants rapists and thieves. He also called for a wall between the United States and Mexico, and he said he would force Mexico to pay for it. He has also upset many with his call to ban Muslims. Other Republican candidates have also taken anti immigrant stances.

The campaign will focus on Florida, Colorado and Nevada, which all have large Latino populations. Democrats believe there are enough Latinos in those states to turn the tide in the November elections. Those states were won by Obama in the last two elections, but Republican governors were elected. The campaign hopes to sway undecided voters and to encourage those already in the liberal camp to get out and vote.

Republicans have a PAC of their own aimed at Latino voters. They will spend $10 million, financed by the Koch brothers.

George Soros often donates money, and uses his Open Society Foundation to support liberal causes around the world. He was involved in a move to unseat Bush in 2004, donating several million, but he was not too involved in the next two presidential election cycles. He has donated $13 million in the current election cycle.

Soros said he finds the rhetoric of Republicans offensive, and particularly that of Trump. He said their bombastic talk is a threat to the national interest and to democracy itself as an institution. He said that has moved him to get more involved. He believes there should be consequences to such hateful speech. He does not want to ban anyone, but he would like to see voters reject them and vote for Democrats instead.

Support for Democrats is not automatic though, for Democrats even though Republicans may have offended them. Latino organizers said in the past Democrats were stingy with donations, limiting what they could do. They were also upset that Obama was not able to do an immigration overhaul.

Soros is one of the world’s richest men. He made his fortune in the international finance and hedge fund businesses. He moved to the United States in the early 1950s and started building his empire. Soros studied at the London School of Economics in England. Soros grew up in Budapest, Hungary. His Jewish family had to hide from Nazi occupying forces, and they lived through World War II there.

Doe Deere’s Take on Fashion Conventions

Doe Deere is best known as the CEO and creative voice behind Lime Crime cosmetics. The company is named for Doe’s favorite color (lime green), and features vivid hues of eye shadows and lipsticks that are all-natural and vegan. Deere, who is also a musician and makeup artist, is also pretty outspoken when it comes to fashion and style. She follows her own rules and definitely turns heads no matter where she goes.

It’s common knowledge that most fashion and beauty magazines release an issue each September, giving readers pointers on what to wear for the upcoming season. Doe Deere says that these fashion rules don’t necessarily have to be followed. For instance, she doesn’t believe that you have to wear nude colors or black when you dye your hair a bright shade. Deere often wears her hair in vivid shades of green, pink or blue, and pairs these outgoing hair choices with colorful outfits all the time.

Doe Deere also shares that wearing several different patterns at one time is completely acceptable. It’s a great way to show off your personal style and send the message that you’re a fun and upbeat person without having to say a word. Deere is also a fan of wearing socks with open-toed shoes. This is normally considered a fashion no-no, but Doe says it’s just one more way to add more texture and color to an outfit.

As far as makeup rules go, most fashion magazines advise against wearing a bold lip and eye at the same time. However, Doe Deere says that it’s OK to wear a brightly colored lipstick with a smokey eye. There are several ways to do this, and Lime Crime provides a variety of colors for makeup lovers to experiment with their look.

Finally, Doe shares that people shouldn’t be so stuck on wearing clothing that is occasion or age-appropriate. What’s most important is that people wear what they’re comfortable in. This can serve as an instant confidence booster.

George Soros Predicts Another Economic Crisis

 

Many investors are wondering if they should be nervous about the current economic situation in China. The value of the yuan is decreasing at an exceptionally high rate. In just the first couple of days of January 2016, over $2 trillion was wiped from the value of global equities. On January 6, 2016, the losses deepened in Asia and caused trade for the rest of the day to come to a complete stop.

George Soros has warned that the current economic situation echoes what happened in 2008. He has advised investors to exercise caution. He mentions that part of the problem is that China has gone from investing and manufacturing toward services and consumption. Steps are being taken by the Chinese government to rectify the situation. By the year 2020, China’s Communist Party has pledged to increase the convertibility of their currency. Also, the People’s Bank of China has been cutting interest rates in an effort to boost the economy. In fact, interest rates are at an all-time low. Billions of dollars to have been pumped into the economy by a local authorities. There’s a chance that things could improve, but George Soros is sure an economic crisis is on the way.

George Soros has been right in his predictions in the past. For example, in September 2011, he said that the economic crisis that was going on in Europe was worse that what happened in 2008. Many would agree with this. Some of his predictions have earned him a lot of money. One example of this is what took place in the year 1992. He bet that the United Kingdom would have to devalue the pound. He proved to be right and walked away netting $1 billion.

Besides turning to him for financial advice, many admire George Soros for the outstanding work he has done in philanthropy. Not too long after starting his career in New York City in the 1950s, he began doing philanthropic work that benefited people in many countries. One example of this is how he gave scholarships to black South Africans living under apartheid. He also took an interest in the Roma of Europe. He is responsible for the most concerted and largest effort in history to bring them to the mainstream. He provided educational opportunities not only for young Roma who were outstanding students, but also for refugees and young individuals from marginalized groups.

George Soros is well known for his work with the organization Open Society. This organization promotes the idea of living in an open society where each individual’s rights are respected and the government is accountable. George Soros feels that his financial success obliges him to take a stand on controversial issues and to do good for others.

Changing Your Coffee for Healthier Choices and Bernardo Chua

Who is Bernardo Chua?

Bernardo Chua is a businessman from the Philippines. He has worked for years to develop a brand of coffee that is healthier to consume than other coffee brands. His vision: people that want to drink coffee can do so while staying healthy and active in the process.

Chua began working in marketing when he worked with his adviser Leow Soon Seng,where he was introduced into the world of health and physical and mental wellness. Together, they founded the Gano Excel Philippines in July of 199. Chua worked there for a few years, expanding the company from the Philippines to locations in Hong Kong, Canada, and even the United States in a span of less than four years. His hard work at this company and working with Seng earned him the title of President of Gano Excel in the United States in the year of 2003. However, he later decided to start up his own company, so he packed up at that company and started Organo Gold.

Chua is known for earning various award nominations for his business endeavors. His most well known award was his receiving of the Dangal ng Bayan Award for Business Industry that he won during the 22nd Annual People’s Choice and National Consumers Quality Awards in the year of 2014. It was the development of his company, Organo Gold, that really got him started in the career of coffee that has earned him his success today.

Organo Gold Coffee

Chua founded the company Organo Gold in 2008. Providing healthier choices for coffee, the company has been majorly successful since its founding. They don’t just provide coffee either, as in recent years, they have expanded to many other hot beverages for customers to enjoy while staying active on their lives. They have been so successful that in 2013, the Direct Selling News ranked Organo Gold as the 55th largest marketing company in the entire world!

Making healthier choices

Chua has a method to making his coffee so healthy for many to enjoy. At the beginning of 2016, Organo Gold started to mix their beverages with a certain herb, titled by the Chinese over 4,000 years ago as the, “Kind of Herbs.” This name sounds a whole lot better than its more commonly known name, Ganoderma Lucidum. This delicious tasting herb adds a unique flavor to the beverage, and it has its own unique health benefits as well. Nutritionists claim that it has so many benefits that it is no wonder how it got its nickname. From providing the body with necessary alkali to adding the amount of oxygen delivered to the body, many see the benefits of this herb essential to their daily lifestyles. Organo Gold has provided the herb in a wide variety of their products to increase the amount of people that would want to try it without having them drink something that they don’t prefer, as customer happiness is something that is very important to the success of any company.

The European Union Must Find An Equitable Solution To The Migration Crisis According To George Soros

In a recent interview, George Soros wasn’t afraid to tell the world that Europe lacks the leadership it once had. Leaders like Adenauer, de Gaulle and Thatcher had the vision as well as the stature to make necessary changes for the good of Europe and for their countries. But the current European leadership is caught in the mud of immigration issues, economic stagnation, and high youth unemployment. George Soros, the hedge fund genius, and open society promoter, recently told a German magazine that the optimistic scenario for revitalizing the European Union is fading faster than invisible ink.

The New York Review of Books posted the interview, and readers got to know Soros. His thoughts about the current political and economic issues that are creating an incredible amount of tension in the world are right on the money. Even though the overall population of Europe is declining, and the median age of workers is rising, most EU members are closing their borders to immigrants from the Middle East. The influx of refugees has turned into a tension-filled nightmare and the nightmare keeps getting worse.

The European Union is following a recipe for disaster, and most of Europe’s leaders are condoning that recipe. Nationalism is the mating call of the day, and if that mentality continues any chance for the EU to resolve its political issues will disappear. Soros thinks the European Union has three possible futures. The first one is EU leaders could find a creative way to resolve the migration crisis. The Soros premise is, determined leadership will develop a strategic plan that will support some asylum-seekers. That determination will also build institutions that support the euro, and adopt reforms that produce more economic growth.

That future will also be based on relying on economic boosts from China and the United States. Soros said on Bloomberg TV he thinks that EU could stay in business but growth will be stagnant, and support for the EU will continue to disintegrate. Europe’s influence in the world will continue to wane as well.

The third future possibility is the one Soros thinks could be the most damaging. Greece might leave the Eurozone; nationalism will become the norm and politicians like Hungary’s leader might gain more power. Some EU members will call for help from Russia and social unrest will be widespread through the European Union. The third future is not good news for the United States. Slow European growth means slower American growth, according to Soros. If the third future becomes a reality, there is a pretty good chance that world will enter another recession that could rival the 2008 meltdown.
