Secret Meetings About Venezuela Take Place in the Dominican Republic

Those with experience are best suited to deal with specific situations. This is why ex-presidents and former world leaders are called out of retirement to try and negotiate an end to a tense situation. In Venezuela, the country is suffering immensely from economic chaos. No one in the current government seems to be able to reverse trends. The opposition party is seeking to gain power. To calm the situation, the former presidents of Spain, Dominican Republic and Panama met with government officials in a series of secret meetings. The meetings were held in the Dominican Republic, far away from the strife in Venezuela.
The strife between the government run by President Nicolas Maduro and the opposition party does more than cause chaos domestically. The problems in Venezuela according to expert Danilo Diaz Granados are not contained to just Venezuela. Coca-Cola and Lufthansa airlines are ceasing certain business operations in Venezuela. Troubles ripple through various other economies when international businesses are not able to recoup their investments in a country.

“The unrest in Venezuela could also spiral out of control” added Granados. A civil war situation could occur. No guarantees exist that any military action would be contained to Venezuela.

No one knows what went on during the secret meetings, at least not specifics of the meetings. In time, details will leak and the truth will come out. It would be a safe assumption to guess a lot of pressure is being put on Maduro to calm the situation with the opposition party. Venezuela and its neighbors do not need more strife.


Doe Deere’s Belief in Fantasy and Possibility Help Create Lime Crime Success


Doe Deere might not be your typical success story, because frankly, she loved dreaming of unicorns and other fantastical creatures. She stayed true to herself and created the Lime Crime makeup company, which maintains a dreamy, whimsical quality.

The young businesswoman was born in Russia and moved with her family to New York City, exploring various careers before settling into the competitive world of cosmetics. Doe Deere even sang lead in a fairy take rock band called Sky Salt. She met her husband Mark in the band where both collaborated perfectly, but unfortunately, Sky Salt disbanded in 2006.

Doe Deere stayed with Mark and began playing around with makeup development. Doe Deere always enjoyed wearing bright colors in hair, clothing and makeup but was finding it harder and harder to locate vivid cosmetics. So, the fearless entrepreneur decided to launched her own brand in 2008, and that is how Lime Crime was born.

Doe Deere’s many fans often ask for her advice in starting a company, and she offers simple but smart advice: Be yourself. Doe Deere believes that each of us are born with a special talent or two, and when we recognize our gift or gifts, to soar high and create a business.

Her Lime Crime makeup palettes symbolically stand for freedom, because Doe Deere’s palettes are bold and crazy beautiful in color. If you wish to wear green or bright blue lipstick or a red eye shadow, you will find your edgy makeup there. That is how different and modern her cosmetics line has become. It’s finally hitting the red carpet on stars like Katy Perry, and even the bigger makeup companies are now branching out and duping the vivid colors found in a Lime Crime palette. Suddenly, it’s really cool and okay to use makeup for self-expression without fear of judgment.

When it comes to the whole package of how we appear to others, we concentrate on hair, clothing and makeup. That’s what Doe Deere learned while taking classes at FIT in New York City. It’s self-expression, and some of us adore bright colors in all three areas of self-image.

Doe Deere believes that social media is the best way to connect to her fans and to keep her Lime Crime company relevant and growing. You can find Doe Deere and Lime Crime makeup on Instagram where her followers have just increased to two million plus.

George Soros Targeted By Conservative James O’Keefe

James O’Keefe is a well known conservative who is also known as a big time prankster. In May 2016 he decided he wanted to try and infiltrate Open Society Foundations, a charity network run by billionaire George Soros.

The problem is O’Keefe told on himself when he forgot to hang the phone up. Audio of O’Keefe’s call has him leaving a message and identifying himself as someone by the name of “Victor Kesh”. After leaving his message, not realizing he didn’t properly disconnect, he started telling an unidentified person about his plans.

In his message he mentioned he was an Hungarian-American and said, “would like to get involved with you and aid what you do in fighting for, um, European values.” The funny thing is, according to, O’Keefe was actually heard telling someone to not say anything until he hangs up the phone.

After thinking he hung up the phone, O’Keefe engaged in a 10 minutes conversation, all of which was recorded on the voicemail, about what he plans to do to infiltrate the organization. He said that someone other than himself would need to make a hundred calls just like he made.

At one point during the 10 minutes conversation, O’Keefe said he would be opening Dana Geraghty’s LinkedIn page to get as much information as he can to use it to get closer to George Soros. Dana Geraghty is a Senior Program Operations Specialist within the Open Society Foundation organization.

The problem with O’Keefe’s plan is that once he opened Geraghty’s LinkedIn page, his own LinkedIn page was revealed to her. Geraghty was quoted as saying, “It was a little chilling to hear this group of men talking about me as a ‘point of entry’.” She also said it was very obvious the men weren’t very savvy when it came to technology.

After hearing the voicemail Geraghty immediately forwarded it to Chris Stone, the president of the foundation. Stone wasn’t pleased with O’Keefe’s attempt to scam Geraghty on While you can’t help but laugh at O’Keefe tripping himself up, the reality is what he was trying to do is no laughing matter.

About Open Society Foundations

After George Soros had become a billionaire, he decided it was time to start giving back and do what he could to help make the world a better place. In 1979 George Soros started Open Society Foundations as a way to do just that. Soros was quoted as saying, “Open society is based on the recognition that our understanding of the world is inherently imperfect.”

He started the organization by helping black students at the University of Cape Town in South Africa study abroad. George Soros believes that his success has given him a level of independence that very few people have.

He also believes it has given him the ability to stand up and speak out about controversial issues which he frequently does through his foundation.

Is WEN a Win for Fine Hair?

The claim of 5 steps in 1 has had me very curious recently about WEN hair Cleansing Conditioner. Time saving is a passion of mine and this product is said to act as a shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, and leave-in conditioner all in one bottle. According to the website,, it thoroughly cleanses hair without lather or sulfates found in many shampoos and leaves hair strong, moisturized, and manageable. Can all of this be done with only the five ingredients listed on the bottle? According to the results of a 3-week user perception survey of the Sweet Almond Mint formula published on the sephora website, it can.
I was excited to read Emily McClure’s article published in the Fashion & Beauty section of on February 8th. McClure’s piece is titled I Used Cleansing Conditioner on My Fine Hair and Here’s What Happened and it chronicles 7 days of using Wen. You can read the article here:

At the beginning of the article,  McClure talks about how much more of this product was required per use than her regular shampoo. The bottle recommends 16-24 pumps for medium length hair. Throughout her trial, while she enjoyed the feeling of soft bouncy hair immediately after washing, within 24-hours, the product left her hair greasy and flat. She also found that her hair did not hold curl as well after washing and drying because it was left so soft by the product. Ultimately, McClure recommends this product for those with fine hair that have time to shower daily in the morning. She doesn’t recommend WEN for those “lazier” people that do not want to wash their hair daily. Visit for more info.

Two Day Work Week

Venezuela is in an extremely bad situation, as they have been hit from seemingly every angle possible over the last several months. According to a MySpace article, food, water, energy and medical supplies are all in short supply and the government is frantically trying to come up with solutions to handle the problems. About two weeks ago they made the decision that they were going to cut the work week short, by cutting a day or two off of the regular five day work week. This was done to cut the energy needs of the country, while the government was hoping that taking these measures would help to restore some of the energy crisis that the country is experiencing. However, the move proved not to be as effective as they had hoped and even more drastic measures have been taken says Danilo Diaz Granados.

The work week is officially being cut to two days, meaning rather than having two days off of work and five days working, for the next few weeks, and until further notice, the country of Venezuela will be working for two days. Those days will come on Monday and Tuesday, and the government is hoping that by cutting the week down to these two days of the week, there will be a drastic reduction in the amount of energy that the country needs to power itself, while they are hoping and praying that rain will be coming in the near future.
