Compassionate and Progressive George Soros

George Soros is a unique activist and philanthropist. He believes in freedom for all and advocates for freedom of expression, transparency, accountable government, and societies that promote justice and equality. He has spent his life fighting for these causes and to this date has donated over $12 billion dollars. Soros has based most of his charity work on helping people overcome discrimination based only on who they are. Read his profile at Washington Times.

Soros is unique because he has faced such discrimination that he fights against firsthand. Being born in Hungary and present during the Nazi occupation has contributed to his compassion for this cause. Experiencing firsthand the genocide of over 500,000 Hungarian Jews only strengthened his determination to make the world a better place. His own family had to resort to extreme measures to ensure their own survival. These included such things as securing false identity papers, concealing their backgrounds, and helping others in danger do the same. Soros recalls that his family, themselves, as well as helped others overcome an evil force.

After leaving Hungary for London, and London for the United States in 1956, Soros began to acquire his fortune. With his wealth, Soros created the Open Society Foundation. Through this network, Soros helped many in need and advocated his unique philanthropy. Some of his earliest accomplishments were sending aid to black South Africans and assisting the open exchange of banned books in the Communist Eastern Bloc.

After the Cold War, he expanded his efforts to include fighting for accountable, transparent, and democratic societies. He was an early opponent of the war against drugs; he believed that the drug war caused more damage than the drugs themselves. Soros also helped to launch the American medical marijuana program. Soros was also an advocate of gay rights. In the early 2000’s he began advocating for same-sex marriage.

Throughout George Soros career, he has fought for many things. But his progressive and compassionate nature have remained consistent. Soros has dedicated himself to fighting the for world’s most unfairly treated groups. Although he is getting older, he is still fighting to make the world a better place for everyone in it, regardless of their skin color, socioeconomic status, and origin. George Soros is a true progressive and philanthropist. Learn more about his profile at

Lacy and Larkin Frontera Fund a Loud Voice for the Oppressed

For a long time, humans have been known to discriminate against each other with excuses based on ethnicity, race, and even immigration and economical status. In addition, people in government have often used their power to veil their misdoings.

One of them is Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio who orchestrated the arrest of journalists Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin in the dead of night, and jailed them for showing evidence that grand jury proceedings seeking the notes taken by reporters about the Sheriff existed. Read more: About Lacey and Larkin- Frontera Fund

Going against the Sheriff’s wildest expectations, however, the arrest of the two journalists only served to strengthen their voice against oppression and discrimination of the weak. Lacey and Larkin sued the county and succeeded in obtaining a $3.75 million settlement. The money, nevertheless, did not go into their pockets.

A Selfless Dedication in Human Rights Protection

Before the lawsuit and the resultant settlement, Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin had been actively involved in advocating for human, civil and migrants rights. The settlement was, therefore, a godsend for the co-founders of Village Voice Media and Phoenix Times.

Foregoing the chance to enrich themselves, they founded Lacy and Larkin Frontera Fund. The organization has channeled the settlement money into the support of various groups defending migrants rights and the right of everyone to live anywhere in the world regardless of race or ethnicity. They include the Florence Project, Arizona Justice Project, Arizona ACLU, American Immigration Council and Puente.

Advocating for Freedom of Speech

Apart from the arrest of the two journalists, there were grand jury subpoenas seeking to uncover the identity of thousands of people who read the online articles about Arpaio. This only served to add insult to the injury of the two journalists who had spent their lives asserting as well as defending their First Amendment rights.

As a reply and in a bid to intensify the fight against any attempt to muffle them and others, Lacey and Larkin also dedicated the fund to advocate for freedom of speech along with human, civil and immigrants rights. One of the fund’s recipients is the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which advocates for free internet speech.

Bottom Line

The fight against racial, ethnic, and immigrant status discrimination is far from won. However, the increasing emergence of various groups and organizations joining it is encouraging. Above all, the dedication and selflessness of such individuals as Lacey and Larkin is inspiring and spells great hope for everyone who is at risk of being discriminated against for any reason.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Poised to Topple the Amazon Giant

Amazon has been comfortable sitting on top of the e-commerce fashion world for years, and with a 20 percent chunk of the apparel pie, they think they have nothing to worry about. Off in the distance there is an active-wear company that is beginning to grow at a record pace, and it Amazon is not careful, this company could dominate the space in record time. Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is that company, and record sales of $250 million in three years is quite an accomplishment considering who they are up against.


Hudson recently discussed how her company has been able to dominate a difficult niche in short order, and she simply credits the success to her unique membership platform and reverse-showrooming. This is something no other fashion company has attempted, but Hudson’s company is making the most of this unique strategy and women are simply loving it. To understand how the process works, we start with the Fabletics retail stores in the mall. Here is where women come in and sign-up for a free membership or take the Lifestyle Quiz to unlock member benefits unlike any other fashion site. Shoppers try on clothing and it is saved to their online profiles to consider later, and most women do just that.


How is Hudson making money is shoppers leave and shop online after they were already in the store?


Most women have hectic lives, and window-shopping has to be done on breaks or in between errands. Once home that night, they now see all the items that were perfect for them, and they can buy or add more similar items to the cart. Knowing what size is flattering means the guess-work is eliminated from the buying process. Not only is Hudson’s athleisure brand high-quality, members enjoy super low-pricing and even free shipping. Unlike shopping at Amazon where you aren’t sure about whether a new style will fit or not, at Kate Hudson’s Fabletics, you can try everything on in the stores and get your size down to a tee.


The benefits keep on coming for those who took the Lifestyle Quiz, as you are assigned a personal shopper who will select a new item each month they thing will go perfect with your prior purchases. Keep the item, reject it, or buy something else, Hudson says there is no pressure to buy at her company, and it has resulted in women lining up to grab more of this athleisure brand than she ever dreamed possible.

Black Friday week is still going strong! Shop the sale in stores and online. (Link in bio)

One Woman’s Journey with Wen by Chaz

For those who haven’t heard of Wen by Chaz, get ready to be intrigued. The product line has been out for years, known for its commercials where the cleansing conditioner transforms women’s hair from dry, fried strands into gorgeous bouncing locks that seem to drip with shine. Founder Chaz Dean’s hair is an absolute picture of glowing health and I must admit, I would trade my lion’s mane of hair for his smooth hair.

While the Wen hair line is quite expansive, it is known best on Twitter for the revolutionary cleansing conditioner. This is one simple jar of product that is touted as a 5-in-1 system. The Sephora endorsed cleansing conditioner is able to add deep moisture to your hair while simultaneously gently cleansing it with no harsh chemicals or sulfates. It is known to be able to replace your shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, detangler and even your deep conditioner! It also doesn’t hurt that the products smell absolutely delicious! recently showcased one of their writers’ experiences when she tried out Wen by Chaz for 7 days. The article was fascinating and the writer mentioned in several places she struggles with very fine hair. While I have the opposite problem of extremely thick hair, her journey still intrigued me. While she went through the inevitable ups and downs of using a new product (especially on fine hair which can be extra sensitive), her overall recommendation was that it was a great product for people that wanted to take the time to have truly gorgeous, healthy, nourished hair.

The writer’s actual 7-day journey can be read here on

She provides an excellent, highly detailed recap. She also posts photos along with each day, which I found very helpful and to make her review a little more tangible as to what her hair naturally looked like.

A Rare Woman of Many Talents, Trends, Statements and Colors – A Unicorn


Doe Deere stands among the rare lines of self-taught fashion and beauty female entrepreneurs under 40 years old. She has been to numerous parts of the world selling her cosmetics and had even met Prince once. She stands as both a pillar and a model to follow for all young women who seek fame and a following. She is known by many as Queen of the Unicorns; she likewise calls every bold young follower of hers a Unicorn.


Mrs. Deere claims that true success does not always offer an easy path, but that anyone can make it happen with both time and dedicated persistence, and so can you. She now sits as the founder and owner of Lime Crime, a cosmetics business that has sold to millions and continues well in the business today with efforts to further expand into the market as of 2018 and beyond.


Beauty Does Not Lie in One Color or Look, for Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder, and It is Everywhere


Mrs. Deere is known well for making the statements that beauty may come in many colors and that everyone may define beauty differently; she has successfully done so through her sale of multiple styles, trends and colors that are available for viewing online or in-store. She even dyes her hair in multiple unique colors at a time or one by one, showing the world that she simply doesn’t care what other people may think about her and that everyone should be bold and write a new standard for what defines “normal” and defy it time and again. Any young woman can be beautiful, and the most important beauty is the one that lies inside; this fact is often stated but not often taken to heart or remembered for its worth, so here’s a healthy reminder.


Beauty should never be limited to one color or standard, for different people see things through different lenses, and that’s perfectly acceptable. We do, after all, live in a globally-connected world in which we all must love and respect one other to survive and thrive, and that’s the message that Mrs. Deere promotes every time she is publicly interviewed; it lies at the core of her being, and that’s what drives her and Lime Crime to success and even greater things to come.

Jason Hope And The Internet Of Things

When it comes right down to it, the Internet of Things is the future of the world. We don’t mean to say that with any hyperbole, and you probably aren’t sure what the Internet of Things is in any event.

The Internet of Things refers to the connectivity between every day items and the internet. Think of automated vehicles, keyless security systems, and refrigerators with televisions on them. Does this all start to sound familiar? For Jason Hope, an entrepreneur and philanthropist behind the SENS Foundation, the Internet of Things represents the future.

Before your mind leaps to some sort of “Jetson Family’ type future, Jason Hope has a few words of caution. Hope believes that current technology leaves the Internet of Things as little more than a ‘convenient option’ at the time of this writing. However, Hope does believe that there is a bright future for the technology as a whole. In fact, pushed on the subject you can tell that Hope believes that the IoT is going to be a life changing movement within the tech world. Hope believes that the major players across the corporate landscape would be wise to start investing in the IoT.

One of the biggest perks for the IoT, according to Jason Hope, is how it will streamline the life that we live. Imagine waking up in the morning and brewing a cup of coffee simply by pressing a button on your phone. Imagine roads with fewer cars, fewer accidents, and less waste. That is the Internet of Things in a nutshell.
