Shea Butter has slowly but surely made its way to the list of “must have items” for nearly everyone. Gifted to us from the motherland, Shea butter is a fat extract from the nuts produced by the African shea tree. Because of its potency in stearic acid and oleic acid, shea butter is widely used in cosmetics and as an active ingredient in skin moisturizers. The possibilities for using shea butter are seemingly endless due to the abundance of vitamins and fatty acids that are vital to healthy skin and hair. Shea butter is a great solution for dry and brittle hair, by locking moisture in and creating a barrier against your tresses to protect from heat and other elements. Applying a small amount of unrefined shea butter to your hair each time you wash or apply heat could help significantly reduce heat damage and frizziness.
People all over are discovering the many benefits of shea butter, putting into use in more ways than one. Healthy skin and nails are dreams nearly everyone share. Both men and women alike dream of having smooth, even skin and strong healthy nails. Aside from providing moisturizer and protection to your hair, shea butter also has the ability to help strengthen your nails and promote healthier skin. Thats right, kiss your face wash with the lengthy list of ingredients goodbye! Shea butter provides natural moisture and protection for your face or entire body, without the use of harmful or toxic chemicals, dyes or fragrances.
After watching her mother treat pregnant patients skin with raw unrefined shea butter, EuGenia Akuete was inspired. With the help of a few friends and supporters, she began to grow and produce her own shea butter, eventually establishing her own brand, Naasakle. When she was diagnosed with cancer in 2000, her daughter decided she had to do something to help see her mother’s dreams come true. She wanted to help improve the lives of Ghanaian women through the use of Shea butter, just as her mother-Grandma Sunshine. Here is where she found her inspiration for what would become Eugenia Shea.
With the guidance and knowledge of Grandma Sunshine, the mother-daughter tag team took on the world of business with a goal of bringing awareness to the benefits of shea butter, and building more economic and employment opportunities for women in their home town. In 2014 EuGenia Shea was born using her mother’s past experience and her knowledge of the wonders of shea. Currently, EuGenia Shea offers products for pregnancy, dermatological and everyday needs.
Dallas-based hedge fund manager Kyle Bass has been asked to be a speaker at the upcoming Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit, which will be held at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The Summit is presented by Conde Nast and the Aspen Institute. Bass will join Amazon C.E.O., Jeff Bezos, best-selling author Walter Isaacson, co-founder of the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative, Priscilla Chan, Chobani CEO, Hamdi Ulukaya, U.S. secretary of the interior, Sally Jewell, and Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice-president as a guest speaker.
Bass is often asked to speak about the economy and financial news, but he is also asked to speak about politics and an assortment of other issues that don’t really fall into his wheelhouse. But that doesn’t faze Kyle Bass, despite what UsefulStooges.com writes about him. Bass likes the limelight and the Vanity Fair Summit is another venue to keep Mr. Bass in the public’s eye. But over the last eight years, Kyle has made some questionable choices. He’s not the same person that made a fortune betting that the subprime mortgage industry would fall apart in 2008. He’s not the same guy that bet that the European Union would have to bail Greece out of their financial debacle, either. Bass has stepped on several important toes in the financial industry, and he has made himself look bad in the public’s eye.
When Argentina defaulted on debt bonds a few years ago and left four hedge funds holding a lot of worthless paper, Kyle Bass, the hedge fund manager of Hayman Capital, blame the hedge funds for trying to take advantage of the people of Argentina. When General Motors installed steering devices that malfunction and caused the deaths of the drivers of those vehicles, Kyle Bass blamed the victims, not General Motors. Hayman Capital’s hedge fund was the largest shareholder in GM at the time.
The most recent news about Bass is his bet that drug stocks will drop when his partner, Eric Spangenberg, brings allegations about pharmaceutical companies overcharging for life-saving drugs.

Michael Zomber has come a long way from his college days. He did his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois. He worked very hard and took on the very difficult challenge of a double major. He graduated with bachelor’s degrees in English and psychology. He wanted to do this because he always loved to challenge himself. However, his education did not stop there. He felt that he needed a graduate degree to make him more desirable on the job market. Therefore, he enrolled in UCLA where he studied English literature. He eventually earned a master’s degree in this subject.
Michael was not certain what type of job he wanted to get when he finally finished his education. He made a trip to a gun show with a friend. It was at this show that he became interested in antique guns. He knew right away that he wanted to make these beautiful works of art a major part of his life. He soon started to teach himself about the history of guns to the point that he quickly became an authority on the subject. His collection of guns has grown considerably over the years.

Doe Deere is the newest person to be regarded as a phenom in this social media and crazy world we all call home. She is a genius of self-promotion which wouldn’t have been possible if she were not equal parts charming, mysterious, and beautiful. She has the unique ability to make otherwise bizarre makeup and fashion look quite good, even to the traditional among us. Recently a fashion photographer from England used Deere and a doll in her likeness as an oversize portrait which sold for $90,000. Deere is not your ordinary young woman transplanted from Russia. She is a force to be reckoned with. A Sophia Lauren or a Bridgette Bardot for our times. The fashion magazine, Galore, goes on to report that Deere and her makeup product line, Lime Crime, have reached a new level of success; she has been named as one of the top inspiring female entrepreneurs selected by Self-Made magazine.
Deere and her product line, Lime Crime, became an Ebay success owing in large part to Deere’s artistic sense and her business acumen. She has created not only a successful business, which is hard enough to do, but a brand, a phenomenon, and a mystique as well. Deere has the image, the status, and the visual quality of an actress or a popular singer combined with the smarts and business sense of a Steve Jobs or Bill Gates.
Deere and her brand, including the official Lime Crime blog curated by Doe Deere, have created a growing following of girls and young women who want to express themselves differently in our copycat culture. Perhaps some of her audience have been left out of the mainstream by our culture’s demands for beauty and body weight. But Deere’s impact on popular culture is having a pronounced effect and her further presence as a makeup and fashion visionary should continue well into the future.
