Yeonmi Park is one of the most famous human rights activists in the world. This young lady frequently speaks out against the atrocities that happen in North Korea. Park’s Amazon released book tells about her defection from North Korea is similar to a Hollywood movie. It is loaded with danger, expense, drama and lots of twists and turns.

When Park was born in the early 90s she grew up in a educated and politically involved family. This all changed a few years later when North Korea collapsed within a short time period after Yeonmi was born.

Yeonmi’s father spoke out against the government which was then headed by Kim Jong-il. Soon he turned to smuggling to support his starving family. Soon afterward he was imprisoned. While Park’s father was in jail he realized that he had to get his family out of North Korea. Since he knew other smugglers; it was not going to be that difficult for him to accomplish.

Yeonmi’s father was released sometime during mid 2000’s and by 2007 he was ready to take his family out of North Korea. Right before the family was ready to leave, Yeonmi’s sister, Eunmi, had disappeared. The family did not know where she was at. So, they had to start the journey without her.

Yeonmi’s father had decided to send Yeonmi and her mother on ahead of him. He would then join his wife and daughter at a later date. Yeonmi and her mom began the long trek to freedom on their own. The journey was difficult and full of danger. The ladies survived and were eventually joined by Yeonmi’s father. He died from untreated cancer shortly after arriving. That’s when the real horrors began.

Yeonmi and her mother suffered all sorts of horrible things during their journey to freedom. They had to evade all kind of enemies that were looking to send them back home and stay out of the clutches of evil smuggler with bad intentions. The ladies eventually made it to South Korea and to freedom. Yeonmi (and her mom) eventually found her sister in South Korea.

Doe Deere Talks Fashion Rules to Break

Doe Deere was recently interviewed by Bustle for her take on the traditional beauty and fashion rules, which women seem to follow religiously. As the founder and CEO of her very own cosmetics line, Lime Crime cosmetics, Deere certainly knows a thing or two hundred about dismissing rigid standards and rules, especially when it comes to her personal expression through clothing and makeup. While the full article includes ten groundbreaking tips from Deere herself on traditional makeup and fashion rules to throw out, one of the most intriguing ones was that despite popular opinion to the contrary, mixing different prints and patterns on clothing items is definitely acceptable in creating a unique outfit. Deere implores readers to choose clothing items that reflect their personal sense of style and expression rather than avoiding wearing something awesome because of a silly rule that different patterns cannot be mixed in the same outfit. One of the hints Deere gives readers is that for a more aesthetically pleasing ensemble, it can be a good idea to mix patters that are within the same color family, such as pink and purple.

Deere has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for fashion. She definitely views it as a vehicle for self expression and as a way to brighten your day. This is part of the reason why she began designing her own clothing line and manufacturing it to be sold on eBay for fashion adventurers looking to make a real statement with their fashion choices. All of her designs are inspired by a love of fashion and expression of the authentic self, which Deere says she hates to see impinged upon by silly fashion rules seeking to limit self expression.

While Deere was creating and selling her own clothes, she realized that she could not really put her finger on any makeup lines that matched her unique sense of bold expression. This led her to create Lime Crime cosmetics, which she is proud to help keep ahead of current cosmetic trends and true to the most fun means of expression. This means that the cosmetics line features bold colors and unrestricted combinations of daring elements to pair together. Deere encourages all of her followers, whom she refers to as unicorns for the individualistic style and daring spirit, to choose clothing and makeup items that make them feel happy to wear them and embrace it.

Why Hair Styling is Important for Hair Maintenance

When trying to create a health hair regimen, many individuals neglect the importance of hairstyling. Washing and conditioning according to Wiki.com have often been highlighted in the effort to develop healthy hair patterns (and rightly so), but often, hair styling can be equally as important in promoting growth and strength. It is important to understand the role hairstyling plays in the development of strong and health hair in order to initiate proper styling techniques and ensure maximum results. Proper styling techniques can increase hair volume, strength, and growth retention by up to 45 percent in most cases and can be utilized to be both beneficial and eye catching.

Before styling, it is important to wash and condition the hair with a product that is gentle and effective. An example of a product like this that consumers all over the world have had success with is the Wen hair care line. This line combines organic, beneficial ingredients to cleanse and condition the hair in a manner that supports hair growth and strength. Several excellent customer reviews on sephora.com have been written about the hair care line, including this one, which was published on Bustle. Cleansing and conditioning the hair with quality products creates the ideal condition for the hair styling process.

WEN Hair also offers a variety of styling creams and sprays. These products moisturize the hair, an important step in preventing dry and brittle styles. After moisturizing the hair with Wen hair by Chaz Dean it is important to find styles that protect the ends of the hair. This is vital to individuals wishing to restore the health of the hair and promote growth because the protection of the ends of the hair prevent breakage. The ends of hair are significantly weaker than the hair towards the root because the end hair is the oldest hair on the head. It has sometimes been around for over 10 years, making it the prime target for breakage, heat damage, or damage from insufficient products. In an ideal protective style, the ends of the hair should be properly tucked into the head. Styles like buns, french rolls, and hair tucks make fantastic protective styles.

 

Yeonmi Park Releases Book, Strikes Back at North Korea

Life can change in the blink of an eye but not always for the better. Yeonmi Park has lived more hardship in her young life than most people can even speculate. Yeonmi Park, if you haven’t heard of her, is the tiny voice rising up to drown out one of the most oppressive nations on Earth: North Korea. Yeonmi Park is the latest, and most widely known, defector from the secretive and oppressive North Korea. Park escaped the country when she was just a small girl and now she is becoming a leader on the global scene for human rights, as reported by Reason.com.

Yeonmi Park was born and raised in North Korea until she turned 13 years old. Over those 13 years Park learned to keep her voice quiet and never do anything to attract attention to herself or her family.Yeonmi Park tells Daily Mail reporters, “I didn’t know what freedom was,” and she expounds n the concept saying, “I never heard of that word”. For Park happiness was simply having food at the end of the day. Yet, those days were filled with hardships that seem pulled straight from dystopian fiction. Children were taught never to sing or wear nice clothing. They were told never to even whisper about the regime for fear that the “birds and bugs were listening”.

Yeonmi took a long and harrowing journey out of North Korea that spanned several years before she found safety in South Korea. She was sold into human trafficking, forced to work as a child bride, and she had to watch first hand as her was assaulted by human traffickers. Yet she survived and she kept her strength. Now Yeonmi Park is stepping onto the global stage as she releases on Amazon her book, “In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom”. This book seeks to tell Park’s story in all of its details so that more and more people will become aware of North Korea’s oppressive abuse toward their people. With the reaction that Park has gotten from Pyongyang we can tell that the country is starting to worry about her words.

 

The Commitment of Securus Technologies in Providing Inmate Solutions

Securus Technologies, which is the best company providing exceptional solutions in civil and criminal justice for such things as investigation, public safety, monitoring and correction, was successful in pushing for its stand that Federal Communications Commission (FCC) did not have the power to charge inmate phone calls rate caps on intrastate rates. The issue was being heard by the United States Court of Appeals. In the recent past, the company together with its competitors have been successful in the two key issues they had taken before the court concerning the rates of inmates. The first issue before the court concerned the grant of a stay on the decision on Inmate Rates and Fees that was supported by the majority in FCC.

In the United States, the threshold for the court to grant stay in any matter is generally very high. It is amazing how Securus Technologies was able to win the two issues. The company is doing an incredible job in pushing for the development of the right policy concerning inmate communications. The company has negotiated a balance of safety, jurisdiction and costs together with FCC, the federation and the courts for sixteen years now. That is pretty long time of tireless efforts. The company seeks to have FCC meet all the CEOs in the industry to come up with the best solutions for inmates, their families and friends, witnesses, victims, the industry and the society at large.
