Taste of an Elegant Home

 

 

Richard’s dedication to design has made his design highly sought-after. Richard lived in the fifth avenue overlooking the Central Park for 18 years. Together with his wife Marcle Rofle Mishaan, they used to decorate their home. A quick glance at his house would reveal the artistic designs that Richard Mishaan Design firm had incorporated. His wife said that their apartment was like a Lab to Richard; he was always trying new things in the house.

Sold Out to Queen Anne

 

 

One of my favorite projects that Richard Mishaan Design has worked is the Queen Anne home located along the New York’s island drive. The home is unique and outstanding. The house is characterized by navy blue and white shades and glass jute accents. The most stupendous artwork in the house is a fiberglass and rubberized paint statue, which was done by a graffiti artist known as KAWS. The house also has a ceramic Swedish stove. Richard Mishaan Design redid the house in 2009.

Vijay Eswaran says he’s learned that having the right people is the most important thing when building a great company. And the team at the QI Group has not only prospered economically, they have enabled the company to build a university in Malaysia and make plans for a green-energy powered, environment-friendly city to be built within the next few years.

One of the things that has been helpful to Vijay Eswaran as a leader and enhanced the work of his staff and the company and enabled them to grow is the concept of ‘Service above Self’. It’s something is father taught him as a child.

And he constantly shares that message with his staff. He remains humble because he understands that interacting with customers, listening to the stories they share and working hard and smart to meet their needs and improve their lives is what makes the QI Group successful.

Vijay Eswaran says another key to the QI Group’s success is continuing to maintain a small company soul even as they work to become a global enterprise. Taking the actions necessary to ensure each customer gets the personal attention they need to make them happy is what will help the company to grow exponentially.

It’s an understanding that they must be motivated by making a positive difference in people’s life and always be willing to innovate and try harder.

The Mornings for the Founder of Lime Crime

The daily routine for the founder of Lime Crime, Doe Deere begins at 8:30 am. She awakens automatically without the use of an alarm after nine hours of sleep. A morning person, she revels in her morning routine. She drinks a full glass of water to start her day off fully hydrated. She notes that staying hydrated is a necessary focus, because Los Angeles, her home is very dry.

 

She starts the day off with stretches. Her favorite ones are the cat/camel exercises that loosen up her back. After stretching, she likes hot cereal for breakfast, preferably grits. She enjoys eating it in front of her kitchen window, where she begins planning her day. Oranges grow in her yard, so she’ll enjoy a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice as well as some yogurt and fresh fruit for breakfast on many days.

 

Always the business woman, Doe Deere checks her phone calendar first thing in the morning. She keeps communication lines open with her company’s teammates through the internal company chat, so she’s aware of business matters at all times. Admittedly, she also checks Instagram and email throughout the day, preferably not in the morning.

 

Before she gets ready for the day, she likes to have music playing. Right now, she’s been obsessed with the Beatles. While listening to the vinyl recording of Abby Road, she does her makeup. She loves washing her face with Glossier face wash, because it smells like roses. Next, she moisturizes her face with Murad ‘Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essence’. She begins by applying L’Oréal’s True Match Foundation, followed by MAC’s ‘Studio Fix’ to remove the shininess. Finally, she sets the makeup with loose powder. Doe Deere uses other brands of foundation now, but Lime Crime will be releasing a foundation very soon. Doe Deere is currently working very hard to bring it to market.

 

After filling in her eyebrow with pencil, she applies pink or red blush to her cheeks and then does her lips. Her favorite lip colors are Lime Crime’s Rustic, Red Velvet and Pink Velvet. These bright splashes of color bring life to her face and are the part of applying makeup she loves most.

 

She showers at night, preferring to start the day with dry hair. Using a curling wand, she adds her shiny waves that set off her long purple hair. Before she heads off to work, she spends a few minutes with her two Persian cats, Puffy Fluffles and Chester Von Battingham. She enjoys petting and kissing them as well as making sure they live a royal existence in her home.

 

From there, she starts her workday at the office around noon and works straight through till six or much later, if needed. She’ll work until midnight if it’s necessary. Doe Deere starts her day focused and ends it the same way. That’s how she has gotten Lime Crime off to such a great start.

The one and Only George Soros

George Soros is a very influential man who is well known for doing two things, which in a way are completely connected to each other beyond the obvious. He is really good at making vast amounts of money and understanding the dynamics of business relationships in strategy. And, he is equally good at strategically giving his money to those who need it in order to keep the wheels of political justice spinning in the right direction. But, there is so much more to fully understanding the man, and a lot of that has to do with knowing his history.

The story of George Soros has its origins starting in Budapest, Hungary 1930. Life is reasonably good for him until the age of 14. That is when the Nazi occupation of his homeland makes life a series of serious choices for survival concerning him and his family. After it all finally ends, his family immigrates to London, England, where his life starting with work, training and education begins.

After passing his formative years and coming out the other side with a plan in mind, George Soros sets sail toward the Unites States to end up on the shores of New York, NY. Twenty years of patiently sticking with the script and rising to the top pays off for him, and he has a mind to make his mark in the world. To this end, he creates the Soros Fund. The investments flow in while successful agendas, policies and campaigns flow out. Read more about George’s life story at biography.com.

It is this very strategic and deliberately designed cash flow surplus that leads George Soros to the way of establishing his Open Society Foundations. With more than twenty years of serious profits gains, a world class education and a personal triumph that carries with it such responsibility, being the head of these organizations just comes naturally for him.

The reach of his foundations and the benefits they provide to the world stretches across the globe, stopping in places like Russia, Eastern Europe or New York City. Those in need can also count on his help in places where natural disasters strike. The names of the people and organizations he lends a hand to actually add up to 500 pages. Know more about George Soros on CNBC.

George Soros is a maverick of philanthropic goodness. And, some people attempt to question his nature. While no one, as yet, can point to a moment in time as to when he has played outside the rules. But, as he can affirm, you cannot please everybody. Perhaps, it is best not to please everybody and it is necessary to fight against some. But, you can give everyone a fair warning as to how things should be. This is exactly how George lives his life for others these days.

Securus video visitation creates strong value for all customers

Perhaps more than any other industry, prison contractors in the United States have been heavily vilified by leftist organizations that deem them to be an inappropriate addition to the United States criminal justice system. To be fair, in some of cases, the critics have a valid point. There are built-in perverse incentives where companies are making their money primarily off increased incarceration levels and stringent laws of a society.

 

But many of the prison system’s contractors have absolutely no dog in any political fight. Many people underestimate the extreme challenges that prison contractors face on a day-to-day basis, just in order to carry out their business. For example, Securus Technologies, one of the nation’s largest providers of inmate communication services, has a dual customer base, with often diametrically conflicting interests, that can make their job extremely difficult.

 

On the one end, Securus must keep phone rates low, so that inmates are happy and continue to use the system with regularity. On the other hand, it also must take into account the concerns of corrections officers, who the inmates often view as the enemy. Securus manages to do this through keeping rates extremely low, using VoIP-based communications technology and other proprietary systems that the company itself has developed.

 

On the other hand, it also deploys an industry-leading security suite, allowing corrections officers total control over the communication systems and what goes on over them. By implementing state-of-the-art artificial intelligence solutions, including military-grade voice recognition that can instantly identify any banned party or any flagged individual that is known to be a security threat to the institution, Securus enables corrections officers to focus on only the most pressing cases, dramatically increasing efficiency and maintaining an extremely high level of institutional security.

 

These are just some of the ways in which Securus is delivering big value to all of its customers, no matter their position within the U.S. carceral system.

Ms. Eva Moskowitz is the founder and CEO of Success Academy Charter Schools and a former City Council member for the Upper East Side in New York City. Reports of widespread of cheating by students and a cover up by principal by New York Magazine during her early life and education transformed her into a lasting critique of the New York public school system. She graduated from University Pennsylvania with B.A. with honors in History and received her Ph.D. in American history from John Hopkins University in 1991.

 

Ms. Eva Moskowitz has a successful career as teacher, administrator, an entrepreneur, and politician.

Eva Moskowitz expresses her candid and divergent views about the inadequacies of the American basic educational system. She bemoaned the abysmal falling standards in education stating that the highest performing students in America are worse than lowest performing students in other countries. She attributes the nonperformance of students due to the educational structure, curricula, and methods of teaching. She does not support public non-charter schools for middle-class and affluent districts because they are not effective as parents think. Moskowitz called for more concerted efforts to assist struggling students by improving school programs and identifying and helping students with learning disabilities earlier. She argues that the public elementary school curricula are not challenging enough for students making many students bored at school. She and Arin Lavinia wrote that the math syllabi are taught rather at low pace as if time was of no essence and argued for a much speedy teaching. 

Bruce Bent II: the Brilliant Mind behind Money Market Funds

Money market funds have become one of the most popular ways of saving money, and for good reasons. First off, they provide higher returns than bank deposits yet the level of risk involved is believed to be just as low as the risk involved in bank deposits. However, the returns they provide are relatively low compared to more risky investments such as stocks and long-term debt. The risk inherent in money market funds is low because the funds are highly liquid as the securities invested mature in a few months.

The securities invested include short-term bonds, such as treasury bills, repurchase agreements, and commercial paper among others. Both individuals and corporations can have money market fund shares, and these can be purchased through brokerage firms, mutual funds, and even banks. Bruce Bent II is the brilliant mind that invented the first money market fund in the world in 1970.

Money market funds ensure that investors receive, at the very least, the amount of money they invested. This prevents them from losing their money. Money market funds are now used all over the world.

Anyone seeking higher returns on their savings without taking on too much risk should consider purchasing money market fund shares. For more than 4 decades they have been in use, they have proven to be one of the safest investments an investor can make.
