In much of the world human rights simply aren’t respected. Across the developing world brutal dictators rule and use their power to suppress democracy, human rights, and other important basic needs any modern country has. Activists looking to fight against these injustices aren’t standing up to regimes that allow for dissent.
These activists risk imprisonment, torture, and even death as a consequence of their actions. With this image in mind it’s not hard to see why someone like Thor Halvorssen are such exceptional humans. Over the course of his 40 years, Halvorssen has led important organizations in the fight to advance liberty across the world. From the Foundation For Individual Rights In Education to the Children’s Peace Movement, Halvorssen has made a mark just about everywhere he steps.
One of the earliest but most important battles Halvorssen fought was against the slave labor camps of China. In 1999 Halvorssen led a movement to convince the corporation Lucent Technologies to adopt a strict policy against slave labor.

At the time he decided to take a stand against child labor in China the country had Laogai camps across the country with up to 8 million inmates held in these camps being used to make consumer goods. After convincing Lucent Technologies he moved on to focus on other important issues.
Halvorssen’s success in founding multiple organizations has produced many of the positive results he has become famous for. FIRE, the Foundation For Individual Rights in Education, he united both liberals and conservatives in order to advance personal freedom across the world.
While the company was successful in accomplishing this goal, its 5 year run came to a close. The next year Thor Halvorssen founded the Human Rights Foundation where he currently heads as it’s president. Through the Human Rights Foundation he continues to fight for individual rights across the world and for the establishment of free societies.

Guest of a Guest gives an interview to young-lady businesswoman in the cosmetics industry named Doe Deere about Lime Crime. Doe Deere comes to the USA from Russia at the age of seventeen. At first, the years start with a life in Manhattan and eventually she finds her Brooklyn as her turf. Deere admits to having imagination and ambition from an early age, even when she lived back in Russia. Deere does not know that she held on to a big dream though. She recalls having a desire to be musician and following through on that while in New York City. The experience as a musician holds as a learning model for long term thinking and commercial value. However, finding make up turns out to be a most beautiful thing for her. It kind of coincides with her time in Russia selling temporary tattoos as a novelty and for fun. It’s all about discovery and playing up a value. It is fourteen years of experience in New York City for Deere. This experience includes playing in a band. This I how she met her husband and business partner.
Her best advice for other ambitious young women is to follow their hearts she believes every person has something special about them and when they find their unique skill they tap into their truest potential and talent. “Go where you love.” Deere says. She advise to really explore that area where ever it is. For her, it is important to be in touch and know yourself to find the best value. This is the train of thought that ushers in the creation of Lime Crime. This is circa 2008. It is the result of her affinity for light and bright colors of make up in an industry that mainly focuses on natural colors.

Deere started making her own colors of make up after finding none of she wants available on the market. The results on her and the reaction of girls who saw her makeup is stunning. As a result, the company makes profit. Deere thinks make up gives her, and the women who use Lime Crime, more freedom of expression. She even has a little experience in fashion and design. She says the two go head in hand. Deere understands that hair, wardrobe and face are mediums of expression. All she has to do now is stay smart and light hearted. Being herself and expressing what is in her mind works well for Deere. When she sees a need for beauty and change she goes for the win. And that is the secret to her success in life, business and personal beauty. This advice is a good way to go for anyone, not just other ambitious young ladies.

The modeling industry is very exciting. There are a ton of men and women that come through the industry, but there are only a few that have the longevity to stay in the industry. Naomi Campbell is one of those people that has managed to stay relevant for a long time. She has been able to survive in an industry where a lot of people do not last for more than a couple of years.
I think that she has had the staying power because she continued to be versatile. She could have easily become this supermodel that got stuck with runway modeling, but she branched out into magazines. She could have let other younger women in the modeling industry threaten her and she could have lost her confidence. She did not let anyone threaten her though. She has remained very confident in her various fields of work. She has gotten into acting and this is another area where she has excelled. Naomi Campbell has been able to explore different positions on television in the United States and the United Kingdom. Her ability to split her time and energy between two different countries has made her an intriguing supermodel with international success.
I think that there are a lot of models that look up to Naomi Campbell and what she is doing. She has been able to stay in shape and shine as a supermodel for so many years. This has to be an inspiration for lots of women. There are young girls that are looking up to her because she has stayed in such great shape for so many years. I can hardly believe that she is almost 50. This means that she has been modeling almost as long as I have been alive. That is unbelievable. She was on the cover of magazines when I was a little girl, and she is still gracing the cover of magazines right now. That is something that is unbelievable to me. I even see her acting on television shows that I watch. Campbell has been successful because she works very hard.
John Goullet earned his Master’s degree in Computer Science from Ursinus College in 1983. He began his career as an IT Consultant. After spending several years in this role, he moved into IT Staffing and has made this his primary goal. In 1994 he founded Info Technologies. He used his innovative talents to build his company into a leader in IT Staffing. By now he was placing clients with Fortune 500 companies and had a net worth of $30 million. Info Technologies was cited in Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest, private companies in the IT Staffing field.
In 2010, John merged Info Technologies with DIVERSANT and became Principal Executive. The firm is a leader in IT Staffing for Mid- Market and Fortune 500 Companies. John’s specialties include: Info Systems Staffing, Application Development, Mobile Development, Network Engineering and Solutions Architecture.
John is an entrepreneur and innovator. The field of IT Staffing is changing constantly. New IT programs are being born by the hundreds, requiring new skills and knowledge. John is always looking to get ahead of the curve. He fosters creative thinkers, requires the highest ethical standards, respect and discipline. Unlike many firms that see their role as simply placing a candidate in a desired position, John fosters long term relationships and views his placements as business partners. He uses the Consultative Approach to solve decisive issues. We must remember that IT Staffing is no longer just placing a candidate in a position at a given salary. Now a final decision is based on the company, company’s philosophy, location, a wide range of benefits, salary and workplace. For example: Will the company allow employees to work from home? How much travel time will be required? It takes a unique talent to work through all of these issues and help the candidate make a final decision. John Goullet has that special gift.
According to New You, Waiakea Water is sourced through the most pure and natural filtration processes that there is. Waiakea Water is derived from Big Island’s Mauna Loa volcano. In 2012 this company was started by a team that had a mission to promote healthy living locally and all across the world through Waiakea Springs. Every step that this company takes reflects this mission.
It starts out with the volcanic filtration process to the local bottling that keeps the nitrate levels at just at a low point. The filtration process enhances the great taste of the water. The presence of silica and trace minerals gives the water a smooth and silky feeling and taste in your mouth.
A virginality rating in water determines how safe the water is from the environment where it was sourced in. Traces of soil from underground water sources may carry the contaminant nitrate. This can come from fertilizer, septic tanks, decaying plants, etc. The volcanic filtration process keeps those nitrate levels exceptionally low.
The length of time it takes to arrive from where it originates from the Mauna Loa volcano takes 30 days. According to AquaGrade, This short space of time gives Waiakea water the distinction of being ‘young water.’ There is hardly any time for the water to come into contact with harmful contaminants and minerals. The water is much cleaner and fresher this way.
Every bottle also comes from recycled materials. It is significantly more sustainable and better for the environment than traditional plastic bottles. Waiakea water bottles use 85% less energy in the manufacturing process. These BPA free bottles also use 90% less water to make and they reduce carbon emissions by over 90%.
Waiakea is definitely a brand that shows the good stuff you put in the bottle should match the good stuff that it takes to make the bottle.
The shipping method used is even resourceful. For bottles of water coming all the way from the Pacific to the US, the company frequently uses low emissions carriers. These are cargo vessels that would be coming to the states with empty space that can be filled with Waiakea shipments.
Doing this makes the flight much more worthwhile for the carrier. Waiakea also uses regional reforestation to counter their shipping methods. Learn more about Waiakea water: https://gust.com/companies/waiakea
The final, and possibly the most impactful of their efforts, is their global water initiative. Waiakea partners with Pump Aid to deliver clean, essential water to rural villages in Africa, namely Malawi, and other areas across the world.
