Will Wen Conditioner Improve Your Hair?

If you’ve seen the commercials for WEN hair products, you’ve probably been a little curious about the effectiveness of shampoos and conditioners from Wen. While there are several celebrities who endorse the Ebay available brand, there are also some reviews out there from “everyday” women. Emily McClure from Bustle used Wen’s Fig conditioner for a full week, and here’s ( what she found.
McClure stated that her hair was moisturized and felt thicker after just one use. Each time she used the products for the next couple of days, she stated that her hair was free of frizz, but had a bit of a greasy feel to it. On the fourth day, when she didn’t have enough time to wash her hair, Emily said that her hair was still well-moisturized, but didn’t hold a curl for very long.

By the close of the week, Emily’s facebook friends noticed that her hair was shinier and had more body. That’s part of the reason McClure would recommend Wen conditioner to other women. She states that the product is ideal for women who have naturally thin hair, since the conditioner adds volume. McClure also says that the conditioner adds extra body and shine, and works well for women who wash their hair on a daily basis. Visit to access the gallery of Wen products.

Igor Cornelsen Makes Investing Fun

When it comes to investing in stocks there are some people that have a lot of fun with this. There are others that may find themselves dreading the thought of keeping up with their investments in their portfolio. I have found that Igor Cornelsen has been able to make it much easier for me to have fun with my investing. He has given me a different strategies to help me build a better portfolio quicker.

Igor Cornelsen has done a lot to help investors by letting them know about stocks and other investments in Brazil. Most people would not really consider investing outside of the United States, but Igor Cornelsen has stated that this type of versification has made it much easier to build a portfolio with higher returns on investment.

Igor has also stated that it pays to actually know what your companies are doing. There are a lot of organizations that people invest in blindly because the stocks are soaring at a particular time. They may not have any knowledge about the company or anything that is going on. What Igor Cornelsen recommends is for people to get a thorough knowledge of what the company is trying to accomplish. The investors research companies they should take some time to also discover what the company is planning to do several years down the line. Cornelsen knows that many companies that soar for a brief time. Even if there is no concrete game plan on is in mind. What he has realized, is that it will take a strong company with a plan of action to really secure good long-term investments.

Another thing that Igor Cornelsen has made mention of is the way that people should take hold of their own financial future. He warns against putting all of your investments in the hands of someone that is not going to be as passionate about your retirement fund as you are. I believe that investors on need to take some time to acquire knowledge in investing on portfolio investing picks. Cornelsen knows that the investor is going to be the person that cares about their portfolio of the most.

I agree with this, and that is why I have made it my duty to learn more about various financial issues. I know that I will have better control over retirement funds when I am presently involved in the different transactions that I make with my investments.

Helane Morrison: The Compliance Guru of San Francisco

The compliance bit of corporate transactions is increasingly gaining relevance. Firms avoid contravening regulatory statutes due to the risk of revocation of licenses and fines. Additionally, the presence of multiple regulatory bodies in every industry necessitates the formation of compliance departments.


Helane Morrison has become the mother of compliance issues in the San Francisco area over the current decade. Her expertise in this sector began while she served as an administrator for the Securities and Exchange Commission in San Francisco. She rose up the ranks and eventually became the pioneering female director of the department.


During her tenure, Helane developed a tightly knit compliance infrastructure for the SEC. She oversaw five States in the Northwest including California. Her main areas of operation included regulation and enforcement of securities exchange as well as litigation. She also has a background in Law thus her ability to discharge all these duties.


Helane attended the Berkeley School of Law at California University where she was an active legal affairs writer and editor. Before that, she had managed to graduate with a Degree in Journalism from the Northwestern University. She went on to build her career in law between 1986 and 1996.


Hall Capital, an investment bank in San Francisco has been the focus of Helane’s time since 2007. She assumes the role of a Managing Director in charge of Legal and Compliance issues. She works together with two other women at the helm of the organization and her time there has preceded significant achievement. An article on her professional undertakings can be viewed on Bloomberg journal.


Apparently, Helane Morrison’s extensive knowledge and experience mean that she can easily influence the practice of compliance. She, therefore, shares her experience through writing. Together with her colleagues and practitioners, they have published several journals on compliance. An example of such materials spoke on compliance in marketing and fundraising and was the result of a conference held in 2012.


Helane and other practitioners are now gaining recognition from far and wider and they are beginning to assume bigger managerial roles in business enterprises. In Helane’s case, envious eyes are cast on her illustrious career and now wait to see the next big move she could make in future.

They Can’t Eat You by Marc Sparks

How does a man with only a high school degree (and a C+ grade average in school) go on to become a highly successful business entrepreneur with over 60 business startups to his credit? That’s the story told by business maverick and self made man Marc Sparks, in his book ÒThey CanÕt Eat You.

Sparks is one of those truly unique people who decided to go his own way and forge his success on his own terms, not society’s. One of the unique aspects of his story, however, is that it is not a repetitive story of great success after great success.

This book is not an ego trip. ItÕs the life story of a man who graduated from high school in Texas in 1973 and went on to start up an insurance company in his back bedroom. His company went on to wild success, but then he lost the entire thing.

He did recover and went on to create many more successful businesses, including, which he still manages today.

According to his page, the point of Marc Sparks’ story is that he learned from his failures as well as his successes. Part of his work strategy is that he believes in placing a high value on customer service, because happy customers are the key to keeping a business running.

He also believes in taking action (like having meetings immediately to solve problems, instead of waiting two days to set up a conference and check everyone’s schedule) and in being bold and listening to his gut.

If you want to learn about business from a successful man who’s faced down failure and met with incredible success, read They Can’t Eat You by Marc Sparks.

Food Shortage Inspires Citizens to Grow Vegetable Gardens

In February, the opposition to Venezuelan law makers declared a food shortage. There’s a widespread shortage of such staples as bread, milk, meat, and more. It’s even getting hard to buy powdered milk. At least one for every 10 people eats at least two meals per day. President Nicolás Maduro is encouraging citizens to take care of some of their food needs by growing Urban gardens. Josefina Requena began growing cucumbers, green peppers, passion fruit, salad greens, and more in the front yard of her slum neighborhood in Caracas. Ms. Requena has also started raising chickens for eggs. Requena and one of her neighbors named Danilo Diaz Granados recently went on a hike into the mountain area, looking for soil for their balcony and rooftop gardens.
Last month as posted on facebook, some foreign missionaries from 12 South America nations had told Caracas citizens they wanted to help Venezuelan citizens with the food and medical shortages. It’s helpful for Venezuelan citizens to grow vegetable gardens and raise chickens, but they cannot provide for the staples.

Chefs in Venezualan restaurants are trying to handle the food shortage problem. A chef in a local sushi bar is attempting to make tempura with cornstarch and ground oats to make up for the wheat flour shortage. Some dishes such as grilled corn pancakes have decreased a little bit in size to stretch out the supplies. People who want to eat fish and have cocktails are out of luck.

The Importance of Being a Giver for Business

If there is one thing that is important to know about business, it is that the business owner has to have a giving mindset. In other words, he has to have something to offer. One thing that running a business can be compared to is making a try on a rugby game. For one thing, if one person successfully makes a try on a rugby game, then he achieves financial freedom. There is the red team and the blue team, then there are the neutral players. It is the job of the team to sway the neutral team to join them.

This article mentions the common occurrence of running into people who are neutral who haven’t chosen a side yet. Often times, these are people who are n the path to success. The one thing that people often do to the neutral and undecided people is that they criticize them. This often comes as an instinctual and unconscious doing of many people. However, there are plenty of effects that this can cause. Among the effects criticism causes is resentment and a resistance to the way of thinking. The better thing to do is to take an interest in other people’s lives.

Queens of Drama and Drama Queens

In this drama-filled show, six women come together to accomplish something unique: to produce a fresh prime time drama. After tiring of being told what roles they should play by mainly male-dominated production companies, they decide to write their own show in which they construct the characters they will act. However, these powerful women struggle to get along as they fight over the hierarchy that begins forming. Tensions rise as loyalty turns into betrayal and bonds are both created and broken.

The show gives a realistic twist to dramatic soap operas. It allows people who do not work within the television business to have a peek inside the workings behind a show while still maintaining a fascinating plot. The relationships portrayed are highly genuine; there is just the right amount of tension that someone would find in a workplace similar to the television industry. Although some of the scenes feel too dramatized to be completely authentic, the show feels more original than many dramas, convincing its audience that they are watching the makings of a soap opera in real time.

The cast consists of a few big names, including Vanessa Marcil, winner of a Daytime Emmy in 2003 for her role in General Hospital, and Donna Mills, three-time winner of “Best Villainess” for her role in Knots Landing. Another actress that has made an impression in the show is Crystal Hunt.

In Queens of Drama, Hunt plays herself. She is very opinionated and willing to stick up for her beliefs. However, some of her behaviors come across as offensive to the others and stress the budding friendships in the group. After Donna finds out about her past, Crystal is almost rejected from the crew. She then goes out of her way to mend her relationships within the party while helping the group to pitch their idea. During the filming of the show, Hunt split her time between Queens of Drama and Magic Mike XXL.

Crystal Hunt is both an actress and producer. Her most well-known part was “Lizzie Spaulding” in Guiding Light which lead to an Emmy Nomination. Hunt costarred alongside Amanda Bynes in the movie Sydney White and was cast as “Stacy Morasco,” a stripper in the daytime series One Life to Live. She was also the executive producer of Talbot County, a horror film inspired by a true story.  Crystal Hunt has an official Facebook page for fans.   Otherwise, see Crystal branch out into Photography on her official site.

The Harmful Investments of Kyle Bass

Kyle Bass, the founder of Hayman Capital Management, L.P., has had many highs and lows in his career of investments. He was able to predict many mortgage and debt crises and was able to make a profit from them. The problem lies in some of his investments that have been criticized my many.
According to Useful Stooges, Kyle Bass has lost a good amount of credibility due to his many unpleasant alliances. His strongest connection, Argentinian despot Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, has let her country default on its sovereign debt multiple times. Each time Kirchner’s irresponsible economic policies put Argentina deeper into debt, Bass defended her. Bass also tried to blame the victims of GM cars’ non-deploying airbags in order to protect his investments. He claimed that all the victims who lost their life must have been drinking or not wearing their seatbelt. He even went on to harass pharmaceutical companies and challenge their patents in order to make a quick million.

Bass’s harassment of pharmaceutical companies started when he founded the Coalition for Affordable Drugs (CFAD). The CFAD’s main purpose is to challenge pharmaceutical patents. Before challenging a patent, Bass would short-sell their stocks so when he challenged the patent and the stock prices went down, he would make a profit. The loss of stock prices caused those pharmaceutical companies to raise the cost of their drugs. When asked about this strategy, Bass stated that his plan was to encourage competition between the companies in order to bring down the prices of drugs. Everyone saw through this claim and this process rightfully angered many companies.

One company targeted by Bass in his blog, Celgene Corp has been fighting back by asking the patent agency to hold Bass accountable for his abuse of the patent review process. The patent office has disagreed with Bass countless times for his claims that many patents were not new or were from other cases. As a result many pharmaceutical companies have asked congress to prevent hedge funds, like the ones owned by Bass, from launching patent reviews.

Overall, Kyle Bass has been making most of his money from unethical investments. He started off on top with predicting many national debts and making a profit off of them however, his 15 minutes of fame were very short-lived. The longer Bass has tried to stay on top, the worse he gets and more people are affected. Perhaps one day Bass will climb back to the top; but that will not happen any time soon.  Read more about his career in UsefulStooges’ Kyle Bass The Frantic Investments of a Desperate Gambler.
