So, why not use our phones for dating? That only seemed right given everything else we rely on our cell phones for. Sure enough, online dating apps started popping up.

Online dating apps are great for those who are busy and might not have time to date otherwise. They allow a person to meet others all over their city, state, and possibly country. They discuss common interests and see if there is a spark. No longer is a person wasting time and money on physical dates. This is a perfect way for two people to decide if there is a connection before they go and meet one another.

There is a large variety of online dating apps out there. It can be hard for a person to decide which one is right for them. This is especially true because a lot of these apps are specialized. For example, there are ones for different ethnicities and for different religions. The best app I have found is Skout. That is because Skout encompasses a little bit of everything.

Madison Street Capital, Global Marketplace Visionaries

Starting or growing your business in our modern society can be a daunting task. In a segment on Today in America TV with Terry Bradshaw, he discusses the fact that business loans are harder to obtain because even well-rooted businesses have a hard time establishing credibility. Bradshaw explains that you can no longer just walk into a bank and walk out with an instant business loan or capital funds to keep your business healthy. In order to be competitive in the global marketplace, Bradshaw suggests that businesses turn to a third-party company to help stay ahead of the game. That company is Madison Street Capital.

Madison Street Capital, also known as MSC, is a company that specializes in financial advisory services including mergers and acquisitions. They help their clients by educating them on what drives the value of their businesses. They are willing to discuss with clients why their business fails or even fails to start. Most business men are reluctant to discuss success, much less failure these days. With that said, the type of transparency, tough love, and honesty that MSC offers to their clients is a rare commodity in today’s market place. Hearing what needs to be heard may be hard initially, but initiating proven solutions could be the saving grace for many businesses.

Have you ever had an outstanding idea for a business venture, but really don’t have all of the business know how to make that idea take off and be successful? Hiring a company like MSC would be beneficial because they are at the forefront of change and know what key services are available that you may not be aware of. They work with each client individually. They first learn about your particular business model and then become your strategic partner. This level of personalization leaves each client with the best possible solutions to their respective business issues.

Helping an individual or a CEO with business solutions is beneficial to the business, the individual or CEO, all the employees of that company, and their families. The effects of smart business solutions are wide-spread and long-term. So, it is a wise investment to work with professionals who have middle-market focus.

Makeup Executives Like Doe Deere Are Rare

It is nice to see someone like Doe Deere in the presidential role within a company. She’s young and she has remembered not to take herself too seriously. This can often be the danger that unravels a lot of business professions. Doe Deere has realized that you can run a company and still have fun while you are doing it.

It amazes me to see the fullness of this Lime Crime company come to light. It is like watching a beautiful flower bloom. I remember when I was seeing this brand for the first time. Someone on Facebook told me about it. I saw some products when I went to the website, and I searched for the person behind this brand. I discovered Doe Deere early on, and I wondered if she would come into the mainstream. Doe Deere didn’t waste a lot of time with (what appears to be worthless) print media advertising in physical magazines. To the contrary, she put her pocketbook aside and focused on making the time to connect with her audience through social media. The dividends for this investment have been tremendous. Her fan base is growing, and I believe that it is all based on her ability to really stay true to herself. Her makeup may not be for everyone, but she certainly knows how to pull her target crowd into her midst. She tweets on Twitters, posts on Facebook and continues to upload videos on YouTube.

There are teenage girls that are really embracing this makeup because Doe Deere is speaking to the new generation. She isn’t someone that is simply seating behind a desk with no knowledge of what her fan base is doing. There is not a long chain of ranking executives that are getting input from lower level workers. Doe Deere has her ear to the street, and she knows what is happening.

Yeonmi Park; No Resting Until Humanity is Respected in North Korea

Yeonmi Park gained global recognition after giving a moving speech during the One Young World 2014 Summit held in Dublin, Ireland. She recounted her experiences of defecting from North Korea. Her video went viral and within a short period, it had attracted over 2milion views. She has appeared on popular television shows to tell her story including Women in the World Summit. The challenge she has endured at only 21-years has strengthened rather than breaking her. She has turned into a vocal activist ready to condemn any oppression leveled against her people. According to the UN report released in 2014, the North Korean government was leading in regard of disrespect of human rights. Over 300 refugees and defectors recounted inhuman torture they had to go through under the brutal and tyrannical Kim Jong-II regime. According to Park, Kim Jong has turned against his people, and he is out of control. She called on North Koreans who were supporting him to open their eyes and demand quality leadership. Yeomni Park interest in activism was enhanced after watching a pirated copy of the 1997 Titanic movie. She learned the importance of love and humanity, which was lacking in North Korea. She has acted as a role model to many by publicly speaking and writing about her life in the Washington Post and The Guardian respectively. She is a volunteer for Freedom Factory Corporation, a community organization in South Korea dedicated to creating a population of open-minded people. Yeomni Park is a member of NYtimes and Liberty in North Korea, a non -profit organization that resettles refugees hiding in China to either the United States or South Korea. During 2014, Link’s summit held at Pepperdine University, Park and other activists hailing from North Korea such as Seongmin Lee and Joo-yang spent their time enlightening participants on the harsh conditions in North Korea. In addition, they educated them on various means through which LiNK was supporting refugees. Various propaganda such as tourists bowing to the Statues of previous and current Korean leaders slows the liberation agenda of the country. Some have been designed to silence her, but she always rises to the occasion. She discusses topics and life of the refugees on the popular talk show known as, ‘North Korea Today.’ She volunteered in this program to publicize the struggles and oppressions encountered by refugees and residents of North Korea. She was born on October 4, 1993, in Hyesan North Korea. After successfully defecting from North Korea, the South Korean diplomats assisted her family to settle in Seoul. She joined Dongguk University in Seoul, where she is currently majoring in Criminal Justice. She is positive that North Korea will stop oppressing her citizens once leadership changes. She trusts that Korea is one united country, and there are neither southerners nor northerners. She encourages fellow activist, refugees and forward thinking citizens to continue spearheading the human rights campaign and North Korea will be liberated from cruel and unjust leaders. Despite much propaganda to portray the suffering of the citizens as a mere exaggeration, the UN report provides evidence that justify the allegation.

Give A Dog Beneful To See How Much They’ll Love It

There’s a great way to determine if a dog likes the dog food that they are eating. Pour the food into the bowl and watch to see how quickly the dog eats the food.

While they are eating, engage their reactions, and see what they do during and after they eat the food. Dogs that like the food they are eating may continue licking the bowl, even after the food is gone.
