A Startup Takes On Giants
The lip balm market was dominated by just two major brands. Those brands, Chapstick and Burt’s Beeswax, were owned by Pfizer and Clorox respectively. Nobody dared to stand up to these brands because common knowledge taught that customers were loyal to their brand of lip balm and there simply wasn’t any room for competitors to enter the market. Sanjiv Mehra didn’t believe this and decided she wanted to make a stake in the market for herself. This is where she came up with the idea for Evolution of Smooth.
Taking A Risk For A Reward
The idea of marketing lip balm specifically to young women was considered a dangerous one. Lip balm was commonly regarded as a unisex product, but the research done by Evolution of Smooth (https://evolutionofsmooth.ca/) revealed otherwise. Overwhelmingly, women were the primary consumers of lip balm, but they had certain issues with the design of lip balm. They hated the way most brands of lip balms made them use their hands and wanted something they could use more easily. With that knowledge in mind Mehra set out to make a brand of lip balm specifically for these young women.
Taking Millennials Captive
Evolution of Smooth was an overnight success. Millennial women loved the spherical design and various flavors like the Amazon best selling Honeydew and other flavors the lip balm came in. They simply couldn’t get enough of it and bought so much that EOS currently sells 1 million units a week. This didn’t happen by accident or as a fluke. Millennial icons like Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus have featured EOS in their music videos. Beauty bloggers from around the net use Evolution of Smooth in their tutorials. Millennial women have fallen in love with Evolution of Smooth and it doesn’t seem like that’s changing anytime soon. EOS lip balm is now widely available in stores like Target and even online via Amazon all across the country. For more information, visit evolutionofsmooth.ca.
The Supreme Court of Venezuela has been requested to reject an referendum filed by the people of Venezuela as well as the opposition party to stop a recall vote to remove the current President of Venezuela, Nicholas Maduro.
The opposition has gathered over six hundred thousand signatures to petition a recall vote and if a vote takes place it is likely that Maduro will be recalled given the dire economic situation that Venezuela is currently facing. According to expert Danilo Diaz Granados,the Socialist nation is experiencing food shortages as well as an exodus of businesses and a lack of power as a result of various economic and environmental challenges it is now facing including a drop in oil prices which the company exports to finance their socialist programs, high inflation, and the ill effects of El Nino which has harmed the nation’s hydroelectric power source.
Long waits for food and other essentials have led to unrest in the country and the timing of the recall vote will be instrumental in deciding who will take over for Maduro, his Vice President (if after January 10, 2017) or a new election if before that date. The petition was filed in May and delays in processing it can lead too changes in the end result for both sides.
If a referendum is to oust Maduro from the Presidency, 7.5 million people will need to vote against him says Danilo Diaz representing an amount over what he received when he won the Presidency in the first place.
Kyle Bass has an investment history filled with ups and downs. That is the nature of the investment industry, so that shouldn’t be a surprise. But the Kyle Bass history is unique because it really started when the investment industry was the most vulnerable. The year was 2006, and Wall Street was flying higher than a 747 luxury liner. Bass opened an investment firm in Dallas that year.
His company, Hayman Capital Investments, was not on anyone’s radar back then even though Bass was a former Bear Stearns executive. Bass had to be creative to make the kind of money he knew he could make in the hedge fund world, so he made the riskiest bet of the century. Mr. Bass bet that the subprime mortgage bubble was going to burst, and Bear Stearns was going to collapse. And he was right. Kyle Bass walked away with billions from that bet while the rest of the world was holding nothing but a tube of toothpaste and an empty savings book.
Bass recently confirmed his role in the 2008 meltdown when he told a Fox Business news reporter than he told a CNN reporter that Bear Stearns had leveraged itself 33 times using worthless subprime mortgages. Bass also told the Fox Business news reporter that China could be in for a meltdown that will be worse than the 2008 financial disaster. Mr. Bass also said the United States could be thrown into a recession because of China, but there was only a 40 to 50 percent chance that will happen.
Most economists think the United States economy will slow down in 2016 because the China economic situation is going to create a global recession. But Bass goes by what he thinks, and that hasn’t always worked very well for him. Bass has been the center of several controversial situations. His relationship with Erich Spangenberg has been questioned. Spangenberg is called the world’s leading patent troll, and Bass is betting against the pharmaceutical companies that Spangenberg believes have questionable patents. Bass wins when the stock in those companies drop.
When General Motors was found guilty of putting faulty airbags and power steering mechanisms in certain GM models, Bass defended GM in order to keep the stock from dropping. Hayman Capital was the largest shareholder of GM Stock at that time.

RIP City to Seoul gathered that in the just concluded CES 2016, the drones proved to be a major attraction though none have been much appreciated as the Ehang 184. The drones have been specifically designed to be occupied by a passenger. It also provides us with the impression that the flying cars have finally arrived into the market.
All you have to do in a drone is to have the path preprogrammed, sit back and enjoy the trip. Currently, the flight is said to have a capacity of around 23 minutes and reaches a maximum height of 3.5 km.
According to Marcio Alaor, the main concern of the Chinese firm is security. Therefore, the firm is planning to come up with a control center which will be able to command the drone whenever there is need.
The Electronic Vehicles
The electronics cars used to be a major attraction in the electronic fair and are still considered to be the major trend in the automotive sector. The major forecast is that the car will be on sale at the endo of the year at a starting price of $ 30,000. You can get more information concerning the car at chevrolet.com

Another new innovation was the cameras which are connected to objects. For example when you are out in the market and want to purchase something which you are not sure is still in your home refrigerator, you can always receive photos of what is inside your refrigerator and have the problem solved.

Its net worth by the end of March 2015 was about 15 million Euros. It also had a total asset value of about 68 million Euros and a cash flow of 30 million Euros. Considering the little amount of time that this company has been in practice, we can say the achievements it has earned make it stay above par.
Solo Capital UK is controlled by the Solo Group Holdings, which is under Sanjay Shah. Shah also owns other companies across Europe which are all based on financial practices. Some of these companies owned by Shah include British Virgin Islands, Dubai, and Luxembourg. The offices of these companies are found in Europe and Asia. Solo Group Holdings took over Old Park Lane Capital, which is an invitation-only broker company. This company deals in natural resources whereby all the companies wishing to buy or sell their shares through it must be natural resource-related companies.
In an interview with the Global Citizen Magazine, Shah revealed that the financial investment sector which he has proved competent in was not his primary career. He said that he had gone to college to study medicine and after getting that degree in medicine is when he realized that he could not work as a doctor. He took to being a banker and worked for several banks and financial companies until 2009 when the financial depression hit the banks he had been working for. He went into self-employment when he found himself not being in a position to look for another job. This is where the conception of Solo Capital investment can be traced to.
