Doe Deere and Lime Crime Becoming Icons

Doe Deere has become a fascinating figure in the world of popular culture. She is neither an actress nor a singer but has a popular following and an engaging appeal and presence. She even has a mystique about who is the real Doe Deere. She is a savvy business woman who has either hidden her true self behind extreme makeup, hair color, and gaudy clothes or is the personification of her quirky dynamic and colorful makeup and wild and mismatched clothes. She does all this in the name of fashion while she is destroying fashion convention with each outrageous new look. The fact is that despite all this she endures. Is she this cosmetic and fashion maverick of the caliber of a Coco Chanel or is it all a facade? Deere, the person, is far from unattractive, and recently a renowned photographer used her as a model for an oversized portrait photograph, which sold for $90,000. Deere was pictured with a ceramic doll created by an artist in her likeness. The portrait photograph was asking the same question that many of us including Leonardo DaVinci asked with his famous painting of the Mona Lisa. Who is she?

In a recent interview conducted by Galoremag.com, questions were asked about Deere. She admitted to being an artistic child fascinated with makeup and color. Deere recounted having friends over for slumber parties and playing with makeup. One personal insight and a confession by Deere was that she wasn’t very good at makeup until into her early 20’s. A quick Wikipedia search gives us a little concrete knowledge but no insights and includes a photo of a younger less dynamic Doe Deere. From Russia, she moved to New York City and currently resides in Los Angeles. She studied fashion in NYC but dropped out early to pursue riches via Ebay. It was on Ebay when she began personally modeling her products and soon morphed into the creature she has now become. Deere is diminutive in size but not in impact. She is in her middle 30’s, and well on her way to creating a brand, Lime Crime, and a fortune. She is married, but her husband receives little mention by Deere, herself.

Besides her physical charms, Deere is to be admired for the tenacious control she exerts over her business, Lime Crime. She is inseparable from Lime Crime, and while men have no interest in makeup, they are fascinated by this unique and unusual woman. Will more knowledge and exposure of Doe Deere decrease the hold she has over her customer base and others who find her mysterious, befuddling and fascinating?

Lovaganza Says Unite To Eradicate Hunger

Lovaganza, a humanitarian project aimed at showcasing modern-day heroes and heroines from around the world, says we should support, unify, and preserve humanity, and this all-nations campaign is raising awareness for everyone to become more involved.

“Lovaganza is an initiative aimed at achieving peace, unity and eradicating suffering among countries,” say co-founders of Lovaganza, Jean-Francois and wife, Genevieve Gagnon. They travel around the world, and take to the streets to tell the stories of unconditional love. “It is a showcase to inspire, create and share a vision of what the world of tomorrow could become,” adds Gagnon. One such focus is eradicating childhood hunger. Hunger and concern for ingesting daily food are as old as mankind, and one of the most important topics of our future.

According to No Kid Hungry on Facebook, nearly 16.2 million U.S. children experience food insecurity, and approximately 800 million people worldwide. It’s become the one of the most pressing problems in the world. Chronic malnutrition in childhood leaves lifelong negative effects, and many can remain hidden. The consequences of hunger and malnutrition influence a child’s life for years. Childhood hunger can increase hypertension, produce a reduction in body size, and affects mental acuity. It also results in limited development opportunities for many kids. Children may not grow properly afterwards and it can leave hereditary characteristics.

By working together, Lovaganza believes that cities can promote innovative ideas and partnerships to help the poorest people in the world. “It is not just about altruism,” and “There’s a blind double burden when it comes to hunger. There are social and economic consequences of chronic malnutrition,” says Lovaganza co-founder, Jean-Francois. Good nutrition is essential for the well-being, health, fitness and performance of people and societies. Without appropriate nutrition, it all begins to crumble.

What Are The Solutions?

There is no bullet to solve hunger, but Lovaganza is bringing and keeping the problem in the forefront. According to the United Nations, enough food can be produced to reduce world hunger, if we handle it correctly. On one hand, we need more food supplies, and to boost incomes of the poor to increase productivity.

Another approach is to simply improve agricultural production. Environmentally friendly farming techniques and educational programs that help the poor grow food are not innovative, yet it’s so simple.

Lovaganza has a self-enduring promise to bring people together and focus on improving performance of communities, and delivering on unity.

Securus Technologies Is Keeping Things Straight

Securus Technologies is a company that gives criminal justice technology solutions. This is a company that prides itself on working for public safety. They perform investigations that have shed light on a lot of fraudulent companies. Recently Securus Technologies published an article on their website about a company called Global Tel Link. Global Tel Link is a company that gives telephonic solutions to many institutions in the state of Louisiana. They had complaints made against them about fraudulent activities that came to light because of Securus Technologies. Global Tel Link had been involved in unlawful and unauthorized behavior. Global Tel Link had be able to prove that Global Tel Link was charging these correctional facilities a rate that was higher than the amount that was permitted. Global Tel Link was adding an additional 15 or 36 seconds to the end of each call in order to get more money from these institutions. Global Tel Link was found to bill a single call more than once, and by doing this they were getting double payment from these facilities.

Even though a few seconds may not seem like that much time, these practices have been going on ever since 1998. Since that is the case, the taxpayers of Louisiana are the ones who are getting overcharged. The investigation found that in total Global Tel Link has cost the citizens of Louisiana about $1,243,000.

It is sad to see that this company was able to wreak havoc on these correctional systems for so many years. Their tactics were dishonest, but they helped them to reach their goal of getting more money out of the system. It is good to know that there are faithful companies such as Securus Technologies that are established to monitor fraudulent activities by these companies. There is no doubt that they will get there just desserts for the injustices that they had caused to the Louisiana correctional facilities.
