Published / by Logan / 1 Comment on Wengie Recap: Late Morning Routine Hacks

YouTube beauty blogger Wengie gives viewers “life hack” ideas for when you are late to work or school in the morning. She shows how to get ready to leave in just 15 minutes.

 

Her first idea is to drink lemon water. This helps detox your body and make you feel more awake. Next, Wengie suggests framing your favorite motivational quote and putting it in your bathroom to see when you are getting ready. This will give you a more positive attitude when you are in a rush.

 

Next, Wengie suggests using dry shampoo to make hair look fresh and using a blow dryer to blast away the white bits. Then she shows how to make a fool-proof high ponytail. First tie the top half of your hair into a ponytail at the top of your head, then tie the rest of your hair to it with another hair tie. Wengie’s next hack is to roll up an outfit you will always be comfortable wearing and place it in the corner of your closet so you can grab it on rushed mornings. It can even include socks, underwear, and accessories.

 

Wengie’s next hack is to make smoothie bags ahead of time and keep them in the freezer. Then just throw them in the blender and you have an on-the-go breakfast in minutes. She then suggests making your sandwich for lunch the day before. Just put parchment paper between the fillings and the bread to keep it from getting soggy. She also suggests cutting round sandwich fillings in half, then putting the straight edge against the edge of the bread so your whole sandwich has meat on it.

 

Wengie then suggests packing your bag the night before. Finally, she suggests sticking a checklist to your door so you never forget essentials like your keys, phone, or lunch.

Equities First Holdings: Specializing in Innovative Lending Options

Equities First Holdings: Specializing in Innovative Lending Options

Equities First Holdings isn’t just a leader in global lending and financial services. They’re also a leader in alternative lending options, specifically where stock-based lending is concerned. The financial market has changed drastically over the last several years, and few financial institutions have tried to keep up. Because of this, many potential borrowers who need working capital are forced to go without or to take on more risk than they’d like to. Equities First Holdings has bridged the gap with innovative solutions that help borrowers obtain the capital they need while minimizing the risk that credit-based options typically carry.

Stock, Not Credit

Most loans are offered based on credit. Borrowers who need working capital have to apply through a bank or credit union, and if they’re able to pass the strict qualifications, they still have to take on high interest rates. It’s a difficult situation that most borrowers would rather not be in.

Not a Margin Loan

Some people think that margin loans and stock-based loans are the same thing. However, there are distinct differences in the way that each operates. Margin loans require that borrowers be pre-qualified, just as they would have to be with traditional credit-based loans. Additionally, margin loans might come with restrictions dictating how the money can be spent. Finally, the loan-to-margin ratio is only around 10 to 50 percent. With a stock-based loan, however, borrowers can enjoy a fixed interest rate somewhere around three to four percent. Additionally, the loan-to-value ratios seen with sock-based loans are around 50 to 75 percent. There are no restrictions on how the loan can be spent, and since most sock-based loans are non-recourse, the borrower can walk away at any time.

By specializing in an innovative financial service that answers a growing need among borrowers, Equities Financial Holdings has created options for their client base that didn’t exist previously. Borrowers find these options attractive since they carry less risk, and Equities Financial Holdings are seeing the benefit of offering these services in the form of an increased client base.

 

Personal Experience Pushes The Work of Human Rights Activist Thor Halvorssen

Published / by Logan / 1 Comment on Personal Experience Pushes The Work of Human Rights Activist Thor Halvorssen

For the majority of people in the world the image of human rights activists can often be a negative one filled with preconceptions about worthy ideas often not backed up by the correct actions. Thor Halvorssen of the Human Rights Foundation has been looking to change this image of the activism community with a major push to bring his own experiences to the work he completes that is often based in some of the world’s most dangerous countries.

Thor has never been afraid to take on the major figures in business and government after seeing the strength of character shown by members of his own family in the face of terrible experiences. Both parents of the Venezuelan born University of Pennsylvania graduate saw their human rights stripped from them because of their actions in their home country; Thor’s father was given the role of drug czar and uncovered corruption throughout the law enforcement community before he was imprisoned and tortured in a bid to seal his silence on the matter.

Thor Halvorssen has since continued the family tradition of fighting for what is right no matter what kind of harm the individual faces, which dates back to his ancestor who controlled the Norwegian Merchant Navy during World War II fighting to keep the fleet from falling into the hands of occupying Nazi forces. The work Thor has completed with the Human Rights Foundation has made him one of the most respected members of the human rights activism community because of his commitment to areas of the world often ignored because they are difficult to access. In the past Thor Halvorssen has entered countries and used drones to bring information and vital equipment to dissidents in countries like North Korea that are difficult to access without a great sense of ingenuity.

Technology has brought the consumers a long way. In the 70’s the boom box was born. Allowing the consumer to carry it around while listening to their favorite music. Then cassette decks came in two’s. That meant you could listen to the one music on one deck, while the other deck recorded songs. Jumping ahead to the 90’s, their was a walkman in almost everyone’s pocket. The Walkman gave listeners a more personal experience while listening to music. Currently, iPods are taking the market by storm. The iPod is smaller in size, allowing the user to gain access to thousands of apps as well as play music.

 

The Future holds endless possibilities as technology continues to advance. Protective gear is always evolving. Terese Alstin created an airbag for cyclist. Its a system worn around the neck so that it doesn’t lack the visibility that a helmet gives. Kevin Cannon and Ashwin Rajan created Frontline Gloves for Firefighters. This allows firemen to communicate with each other through simple hand gestures.

Technology and Fashion can be combined and create energy. Movement can easily be converted into electrical energy. Now items such as mP3 players and watches can be powered by kinetic energy.

 

Technology and fashion can come together. Google Glass is intriguing. The only problem there is the ignominy of wearing glasses. Another is the cost. The average person wouldn’t be able to afford them. Top fashion designer, Diane Von Furstenbery, had her models wear the glasses on the catwalk. This paved the way and the popularity with the glasses amongst other fashions. This shows the consumer how technology creates beautiful and functional fashions.

How to Attain Long Thick Hair Within a Short Time

Published / by Logan / 1 Comment on How to Attain Long Thick Hair Within a Short Time

Most women dream of having long, lush, and thick hair. This is often perceived to be a standard of beauty. Many are often in a dilemma, more so when it comes to whether they should condition their hair, or not, and whether or not they should oil it. There are some basic tips that can help women to maintain healthy and lush hair.

When combing wet hair, caution should be exercised since water causes hair to become fragile and susceptible to breakage. To prevent substantial hair loss, it is advisable to use broad-toothed combs. Hair needs to be trimmed regularly since this helps you get rid of rough and brown split ends. Trim one-quarter of an inch every two months so that split ends do not grow out substantially.

Shampoos and Conditioners

Some even cause skin irritation besides harming the scalp in the long run. You should avoid buying shampoos and conditioners that contain sulfates. For you to have silky and smooth hair, consider using WEN by Chaz conditioners.

About Wen by Chaz

This is a highly celebrated hair product line, which is synonymous for its high end conditioners. It was founded by Los Angeles based celebrity hair stylist, Chaz Dean (http://chazdean.com/). The stylist was driven by the desire to create high quality and safe conditioners, which have the ability to not only cleanse, but also hydrate hair.

Its cleansing conditioners are particularly unique since they incorporate five elements in a single package. They similarly contain safe ingredients such as chamomile extract and rosemary extract.

Michael Hartweg Gives Up Leonteq To Join Mike Baur

Published / by Logan / 1 Comment on Michael Hartweg Gives Up Leonteq To Join Mike Baur

Leonteq is a derivatives specialist that has been losing a surprising number of people in the last few years. One of its most recent dropouts was Michael Hartweg, a huge name in the financial and technological world.

 

This specialist decided to quit the company that he helped found to join Mike Baur and his Swiss Start Up Factory. Just what does this mean and what kind of impact could it have on the business scene?

 

What Is Hartweg’s New Role?

Hartweg quit Leonteq to become an investor in Swiss Start Up Factory. The idea here is that he will no longer be functioning in a day-to-day aspect with a company, but will instead coach companies within this unique startup.

 

Hartweg, who had quit his operative role at Leonteq years ago and sold his shares, is looking to make an impact in a new role.

 

Essentially, he will help those working with Swiss Start Up Factory learn how to properly run a business and how to expand their fintech industrial presence. He will carefully invest in various startups within the factory and earmark ones that have potential.

 

From there, he’ll discuss the businesses with investors, evaluate their progress, and gauge their development. The idea is that he will help identify startups that have the best chance of success and do what he can to help them reach that goal.

 

Just Why Did He Do This?

Hartweg sees a lot of potential in this little up-and-coming business, started by Mike Baur as a way of supporting entrepreneurs in the digital technology field. As this field expands and more people continue to invest in it in a large way, advice and guidance is often needed.

 

Swiss Start Up Factory will work a bit like a talent show, finding intriguing startups and helping them succeed.

 

Swiss Start Up Factory provides that for him by creating a unique environment in which he can exercise his skills. This is especially true with the new accelerator program the company is launching.

 

This is designed to focus on various fin-tech accelerator groups to help expand the possibilities of this subset of the industry. Hopefully, Hartweg and Baur can succeed in their goal and create a whole new world of intriguing startups.

White collar crimes and compliance

Because it is so strong in the area of litigation, the office is also highly recognized in the area of criminal litigation. In a recent major international money laundering case, the firm has been persuading Brazilian courts to overturn evidence provided by Swiss authorities; Mauricio Silva Leite and Jorge Nemr have argued that the evidence violated current co-operation agreements of the prosecution. The case is underway in the Supreme Court.

 

Environment

Brazil is a litigious country with extremely rigid and contradictory environmental laws, so there is a great demand for lawyers with more skill and specialization in the area. The partners Paulo Guilherme de Mendonça Lopes and Tiago Mackey live very busy in the Milk, Tosto and Barros, for example, succeeding in the defense of a hydroelectric plant against a public civil action in which the Union sought injunction to stop the construction of a plant in the region Southern Brazil based on an incomplete environmental assessment. The second instance decision was favorable to the client and the hydroelectric plant is still in operation.

 

As you can see, Ricardo Tosto and his firm are able to get the results you want. You can surely rely on his mentorship of younger lawyers to show you that he means business, both in and out of the courtroom. His younger lawyers are also able to work with you to get the results you want from the process of litigation. He has been named one of the best lawyers in Latin America, and this is a fine honor.
