Keith Mann Knows What is Right and What is Wrong

In today’s society, it can be difficult for people to tell the difference between what is right and what is wrong. For someone like Keith Mann of Dynamics Search Partners, that has never been an issue for him. He has always known what is right and he has always done what is right. That is how he was bred and that is how he lives his life, each and every single day. That is why he has no regrets and does not second guess himself. He knows he is living his life the right way and the right way is by helping people.

Right now, he knows there are a lot of kids that want an education and want to do something special with their lives. They are not content to just sit back, take it easy, and relax. They know they have special skills and talents and they want to put them to use. That is a wonderful thing. So many kids today get in trouble and they do bad things. There can be any number of reasons for that, but Keith Mann wants things to be different and better for them. He wants them to have a chance to turn their lives around and really do something special with it.

That is why he held a fundraiser that raised over twenty-two thousand dollars for an upcoming school that will be opening in the district and will help fund it and pay for testing. He is a man of his word and his word is incredibly strong and carries quite a bit of weight.

4 Ways To Combat Dry Hair

Dry hair is every woman’s worst nightmare. Hair that is lacking in moisture looks dull, flat and unattractive. There are many causes for dry hair, from unhealthy hair products to poor beauty habits.

To combat dry hair and restore it back to its natural shine, follow these four simple steps and you will have gorgeous, shiny hair in no time.

  1. Keep Yourself Hydrated

We all know how good it is for your body to stay hydrated, but did you know that drinking water benefits your hair too? By drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day, you’re keeping your body healthy and your hair hydrated and healthy.

  1. Wear A Hat in Cold Weather

Dry, cold and windy weather can dry out your hair fast. The lack of moisture in the air and dry gusts of wind can steal much-needed moisture from hair. Fight back by wearing a hat every time you leave your house during cold winter months.

  1. Stop Using Heat Devices

Constant blow-drying and use of a curling or straightening iron fries your hair and robs it of moisture. The intense heat put out by these devices not only dries out your hair but burns it in the process. Only use these devices when it’s absolutely necessary, like when you are going to an event or out to dinner.

  1. Stop Using Shampoo

Yes, you read that correctly. Popular shampoos contain an ingredient called sodium lauryl sulfate which harshly cleans hair by stripping it of moisture. Instead, switch to a cleansing conditioner like Wen’s Cleansing Conditioner. This product cleans hair gently with natural ingredients.

Wen Hair Cleansing Conditioner both cleans and hydrates hair with ingredients that will keep your hair looking healthy and shiny. The unique formula of this product can actually undo years of damage caused by exposure to harsh chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate.

Every woman deserves gorgeous, shiny hair. By following these four steps, your hair will return to its natural shine and brilliance.

Securus Bringing More Than Video Chat To Prisoners

Video chat is a part of everyday life. You can log on to a variety of services and call one of your friends right now. Most of the time, it costs nothing. You can video chat so long as you have access to high-speed Internet. You can even video chat somebody all the way across the planet. With all of this in mind, it is high time that inmates and prisoners across this country have access to the same technology.

 

Inmates in over 178 different prison facilities across this country already have access to this video chat technology. But it is a little shortsighted to call it video chat. The technology, developed by Securus, does a whole lot more than simple telecommunication. The person trying to contact the inmate sets up an account on the Securus website. After logging into the newly created accounts, the user simply requests a video chat time. This request is sent to the prison facility and approved. Once approved, the user then logs back into the account at the appropriate time to start the video visitation. As you can see, this technology is a lot more complicated than a simple Skype session.

 

The applications of this technology are numerous, especially around the holidays. A stunning 110,000 visits per year happen on a smartphone. This means that more family members are getting mobile with their visitation. You can bring a smartphone into almost any venue, including the family’s living room, a sporting event, a play rehearsal, and anyplace else you can think of. This technology can really help the inmates communicate with their families, making reintegration into society a lot easier. Studies show that inmates who are well connected to their families on the inside of prison are much less likely to commit a crime when released from that prison.

 

EOS Lip Balm Creates a Sensory Experience

Sanjiv Mehra and Jonathan Teller are the co-founders of a company known as Evolution of Smooth. Their innovative EOS lip balm has revolutionized the oral care industry by crossing over traditional boundaries to enter the beauty market. Mehra had spent almost a decade in the industry of consumer packaged goods and Teller worked with start-ups. Together this team took a look at what was available in the lip balm industry before designing a product that would primarily appeal to women. In an online article on fast Company, Mehra recounts their initial discovery with lip balms as being virtually indistinguishable from each other.

Gaining New Insights

As veterans in the world of business, the co-founders of EOS lip balm understood the importance of using good marketing strategies. Since the packaging for the lip balms currently available was identical, they decided to focus their efforts on coming up with something new. In order to better understand what women found appealing they conducted a comprehensive survey. They wanted to get an idea of what women thought of using a product that came in a sphere shaped container rather than a tube. While women found the sphere easy to hold, they often had a hard time getting the product out of the container. This issue was resolved by making the lip balm a solid which could easily be applied to the lips while holding the base of the sphere.

Not only did the survey allow Mehra and Teller to design a container for their lip balm that appealed to women, but it also allowed them to make improvements on the balm itself. When women shopped for beauty products they were often drawn to items that appealed to all of their senses. Using this information, the team created a balm that came in different flavors and colors to engage more of the senses.

The Basics of Kabbalah

Kabbalah is a practice that derives from Judaism. It is mentioned in several religious denominations, but is not one itself. Kabbalah’s esoteric teachings have been passed down from generation to generation and were used to explain the complicated relationship between the finite universe, which included all of god’s mortal creations, and the eternal infinite universe called “Ein Sof”.

Questioning the purpose of one’s existence and the nature of the universe as both a large and small picture to attain spiritual realization is at the core of Kabbalah. Its teachings are believed by its traditional practitioners to be thousands of year old. Kabbalah is considered to be the building block for several religions, sciences, philosophies and political systems around the world. More recently, Kabbalah has made a resurgence outside of Judaism which has attributed to a renewal of Jewish culture.

The Kabbalah Center International is located in Los Angeles, California. It is a non-profit organization that offers to teach Kabbalah to those who want to learn. The practice, which was once very selective and only available to those who proved their devotion, can now reach those who have access to the Kabbalah Center and its several city-based locations. It can also be reached online. Its teachings are presented by an international group of educated teachers who have been practicing or studying Kabbalah for several years.

The Kabbalah Center was established in New York City as the The National Research Institute of Kabbalah in 1965. The original founders were Yehuda Tzvi Brandwein and Philip Berg. Mr. Berg traveled to Israel with his wife, Karen Berg, and lived there for several years before returning to update the Kabbalah Center and add a handful of new locations across the United States. The Los Angeles location opened in 1984 and quickly became the headquarters of Kabbalah knowledge. The location in New York was also re-established and updated by the couple. Both Philip and Karen Berg act as teachers and spiritual leaders at the California location. With their guidance, The Kabbalah Center has expanded to over fifty locations and thousands of students all around the world.

Waiakea Water | A Naturally Delicious and Healthy Bottled Water Brand

Waiakea Water has positioned itself as a brand to reckon with amongst other major bottled water brands. The Waiakea water story can be traced from 2012 when the brand was founded as the first Hawaiian volcanic water, according to Gust. Since its inception, the brand has been operating under an outstanding platform of sustainable, healthy and ethical/ charitable initiatives and attributes.

Last year, the company proudly revealed a 5000 % growth since its inception. It also announced that its water product was also available in an additional 2000 stores in about 30 states around the United States.

Where does Waiakea get its water

Waiakea sources its water from Mauna Loa’s snowy peak. Maua Loa is globally renowned as the largest subaerial volcano. The water formed from the rain on the peak and the snowmelt undergoes a natural filtration process through porous volcanic rock, which is thousands of feet. The finished product after filtration is not only rich in essential minerals but also electrolytes. The Waiakea water is also naturally alkaline. This combination gives the water a unique sweet finish before emerging at the source. Rich forest preserves engulf the Waiakea spring.

Environmental Conservation

New You says that Waiakea water ensures all its operations adhere to the Hawaiian notion and practice of “malam i ka aina”, which means to respect and care for the land. The brand also boasts of close ties with the Ecometrica and The CarbonNeutral companies, which are two of the globe’s premier emissions consultants. By working together, Waiakea has managed to measure and minimize the environmental impact of its business and product to zero.

The Waiakea water company has also adopted and implemented various environmental initiatives. Some of them include using only 100% RPET bottles, drawing water from the most sustainable fresh water sources in the globe, actively taking part in regional reforestation initiatives and using low emission shipping. As such, Waiakea is the first Hawaiian bottled water brand to be certified CarbonNeutral®.

Philanthropic Initiatives

Apart from its naturally delicious and healthy water, The Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water company is also renowned for its altruism. In August 2016, the company unveiled a successful sponsorship of about six elephant pumps in rural Malawi. Waiakea instituted this initiative through its collaboration with Pump Aid. The pumps were donated with the aim of assisting marginalized communities to get clean water. Since the pumps were donated, they have brought several positive impacts including fewer water-born illnesses, more school going children, increased local employment and more nutritious food.

Billy McFarland Gives People a New Experience with Magnises

According to Business Insider, Billy McFarland is the founder of Magnises. Billy was 23 years old when he founded Magnises with the aim of helping people to build the perfect network. Magnises is a one-in-a-million social club that offers deals and special events that people can only access with the club’s black card. You can link the black card to your credit card or bank card for the sake of making payments. However, its main draw is the perks.

The Magnises card is made of metal and heavier than you may think. You just need to flash the card to get discounts at clubs, restaurants, and bars and reserve experiences like luxurious gateways and private concerts. Billy told Business Insider that they intend to come up with a complete platform that connects new businesses, with millennials online and offline. Billy noted that since people always carry their credit or debit card, they tied their black card to that.

Several New York City businesses like spin studio Cyc, Restaurants La Esquina, and Catch, and clubs Finale and Goldbar have signed on to be partners with Magnises. Members will enjoy discounts on helicopter trips to Hamptons with Blade as well as attend private shows by rappers Ja Rule and Rick Ross. Magnises was established a few years and currently it has over 6,000 members, who pay $250 annually for the black card. You can pick an activity through their mobile app that is tied to Magnises membership and get instant access to the best deals.

McFarland says that the card targets working professionals between the ages of 21 and 35. He adds that most of these professionals work in the technology, finance, and fashion industries. People who want to be members are required to fill out an online application and wait for approval by the Magnises team before they can be members officially. McFarland said that they want to incorporate businesses into the Magnises experience.

Therefore, they seek members who can give back. However, McFarland added that they are selective about the brands they select to partner with them because they want to build a brand that their members can trust. The firm relocated their home base to a Penthouse at the Hotel on Rivington on the Lower East Side from a West Village townhouse. Magnises holds most of its events there, and members can use the office to work or hold meetings during the day.
