Celebrities and More Enjoy the Contentment of Kabbalah

The Kabbalah Center has been growing in popularity as more and more people are looking to find a way of exploring the content feeling and the sense of happiness that comes from exploring this ancient form of Judaism. The original teachings of Kabbalah have been in place for centuries as the Rabbi’s of the Jewish faith spent a large amount of time looking for students they felt would be able to handle the study of this ancient form of teachings written in Hebrew; the ancient rules of only males above the age of 40 studying Kabbalah have been removed in recent years as many different groups have sought to explore this ancient form of esoteric teaching.

The Kabbalah Center is one of those modern groups that is looking to bring the study of Kabbalah without the need for an understanding of Hebrew and ancient Jewish texts. The Kabbalah Center takes a different approach to teaching this ancient series of texts to traditional Jewish groups, including the teaching of various Bible stories being steeped in codes reflecting the life intended for all to lead in terms of finding the essence of God and happiness.

Among the ways followers of The Kabbalah Center mark themselves out is by wearing the red string around their left wrist, which is designed to be seen as a way to keep evil away from the individual; some celebrity followers of The Kabbalah Center have even gone so far as to refuse to perform on a Friday evening when the Jewish Sabbath begins.

There is much to explore in the teachings of Kabbalah that take in aspects of the Bible and other areas of Jewish teachings that can be explored as individuals explore their own relationship with God and the universe around us. Many followers of Kabbalah are drawn to the teachings of this Jewish tradition as groups, such as The Kabbalah Center, do not require the individual to leave their own religious group as they study Kabbalah.

George Soros Drops Biotech Stocks Amid Pricing Reports

Knowing which investment specialists we should all follow in terms of buying or selling stocks and shares is something of a mystery, but following the most successful hedge fund manager in history does not seem like something difficult to do. George Soros has been known to those on Wall Street for decades after his hedge fund had an average increase of 30 percent in value annually across three decades. In the last few months, the now retired Soros has been making waves with the choices he has been making in terms of the stocks bought and sold for his own Soros Fund Management group.

Bloomberg reports George Soros has recently sold all his stocks in three biotech companies amid the scandal growing on Capitol Hill over pharma executives pushing up prices at high levels far above the rate of inflation; George Soros has not made any announcements about the reasons for dropping the stocks, but he has made other investors consider whether to follow suit. A short term dip has been seen in the value of these stocks, but they are expected to rebound following the 2016 Presidential election when the powerful biotech lobby is expected to block any pricing reform.

Surely It’s Shea Butter for the Most Luxurious Cream on the Planet

If you’ve ever applied rich, natural shea butter on your face or body, then you know it’s a very enjoyable experience. Not only is the texture smooth and luxurious, but it melts nicely into each pore, sending incredible nutrients and moisturization to the skin as well as providing excellent healing and anti-aging properties.

Whether your skin is oily, dry, combination or super sensitive, shea butter can help all these complexions and does not clog the pores.

Shea butter actually comes from the African shea fruit tree (karite) which grows in the wild from Senegal to Ethiopia, producing a tasty thin-skinned fruit with a large nut or kernel inside. It is from that nut, that shea butter is harvested then cracked, grilled and pounded to extract the butter. Next, it is boiled in water for a number of hours until the fresh shea butter rises to the surface. These steps are all performed without the use of chemicals.

There are all kinds of wonderful shea butter lotions, creams and serums available to choose from. We happen to think that EuGenia Shea’s line of shea butter products are sinfully decadent, and the perfect way to pamper your face and body. Even the New York Times has boasted about the brand’s beautiful range of shea butter items and the company’s many efforts and good will to help women in Ghana who work for Eu’Genia Shea. The company also donates 15% of their profits back to their female employees in the form of an education fund. We like that Eu’Genia Shea is a family business with roots in Ghana and America, extending their reach across the globe.

Eu’genia Shea shea butters come beautifully filled and packaged into bright, colorful little tins. These rich, gorgeous shea butter formulas are available in three strengths- Everyday, Pregnancy and Dermatological (strongest, 100% pure).

The company even offers a wonderful subscription program, where customers can automatically purchase any Eu’Genia Shea shea butter product on a monthly basis and receive free shipping.

Eu’Genia Shea’s shea butter products can be stored at room temperature and used within two years of purchase.

Really Loving Lime Crime

If you’re a cosmetics fanatic and love experimenting with pops of bold color, then Lime Crime is the best product line for you to check out. You’ve never seen lip and eye colors this unique and vibrant. Doe Deere is the creator of this funky, wild line and has been experimenting with color since she was a mere child. In a recent article, it features Doe Deere and her successful line of cosmetics, where she talks about inspiration, her fans and of course, her love of beauty.

Doe Deere is an inspired young woman, referring to her fans as “unicorns.” Only unicorns love and know so much vibrant color, so why not give her fans a fun name? Her business took off in an eBay store originally, when she was only selling makeup as a side hobby. It quickly turned into a phenomenon, so she had no time to revise the name. It just stuck! With lime green being her favorite color, it was her first thought to include it in the lines name.

As a child, Doe always got into her moms makeup. At her first sleepover, she decided to experiment with her friends and has loved the idea of cosmetics ever since. It was always in her to work with color and cosmetics. Bold and beautiful, she is. It’s inevitable that she isn’t the only one that loves to be unique- this line has become such a success! She was even named one of the Top Inspiring Women Entrepreneurs this year. Though she never expected her hobby to turn into a successful career, she sure is glad her passion for cosmetics gave her just that.  Be sure to check out Lime Crime on Facebook, and be sure to follow the Tumblr to join the conversation, and share your creations.

Why Are We Using Securus Instead Of Some Other Company?

We decided to use Securus because we wanted to lock down all the communications that came out of our office. We have been trying to make it as easy as possible to talk to the families that we are working with, and we had to pick a company that helped with prison calls. I am personally not that technically inclined, but I know that we have to have secure calls or we are hurting the people we are trying to help. We talk to the families on one end, and then we relay information to the inmates on the other end.

We are doing this for people who cannot afford to have these phone plans, and we even get information and pictures from families that we can share over the video calls. That means these inmates get to see pictures and other things that we get from their families. I like the way it feels to show them this stuff, and we do it all from the office.

I am also able to record parts of the videos to send messages back to the families. They do not have access to the video calls that Securus does, but they are going to get information from us that tells them how their inmates are doing. We stepped in as a third party because we knew that we could help all these people get the information they needed.

I feel really strongly about helping people when they know that they are not going to be able to talk to family. It is pretty nice to see the smiles on the faces of the people that we work for. We are trying to give them a good feeling in a sea of bad. We share information over Securus video calls to make their lives easier.
