Waiakea Water Delivers Clean And Healthy Water As Promised

More and more people are turning to bottled water in lieu of tap water to satisfy their water drinking needs. The reasons for this are many and they include taste, access, and quality. However, it is important to understand a few things about the choices in bottled water before making a decision.

The first thing to know is that not all bottled water is necessarily a better alternative than tap water. In fact, more than a few consumers have been surprised to learn that the water they purchased in a bottle is tap water that has been bottled from municipal water sources.

Waiakea Water is a company that stands firmly behind the quality of its bottled water. Customers that choose water from Waiakea can rest assured that they are receiving exactly what is being advertised.

One main feature of drinking water bottled by Waiakea is the water’s alkalinity. Substances much have a score of 7 or more on the ph scale to be considered alkaline and this is an important factor in maintaining health. Many consumers mistakenly assume that all bottled water is alkaline. This is not true. However, water by Waiakea scores and 8.2 on the ph scale.

Waiakea Water is Hawaiian volcanic water that is filtered through 14,000 feet of rock at the Mauna Loa volcano. The natural water is one of the first to be bottled from the area where rain falls 360 days a year.

Waiakea makes good use of the earth’s natural resources by filtering water through the Mauna Loa volcano and the volcanic water benefits to the health of those who drink water from Waiakea is substantial.

About Waiakea Water

Waiakea Water was founded by Ryan Emmons in  2012 who also acts as the company’s CEO. Emmons grew up close to nature and lived as a child in both California and Hawaii.

Emmons’ got the inspiration for starting Waiakea Water one day while sitting at the base of a volcano that was located not far from his uncle’s home in Hawaii. There was a water source at the base of the volcano and when Emmons took a taste he felt that it was the best water he had drank in his life. His plan to go into business selling bottled water was based on the belief that the world would agree with him.

The History Of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, The Brazilian Banker Who Spent His Entire Career Working For Bradesco Bank

In the current times, it is difficult for an individual to serve in one organization their entire career. However, the case is different for Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi who has spent the last forty-seven years working for Bradesco bank in Brazil. It is human nature to seek greener pastures when opportunities arise. But for Luiz, he decided to stick with his employer through thick and thin. But it seems to have paid off since he was promoted to the top-most post in the institution.

Who is Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi?
Luiz isn’t your typical banking professional. He is a revered banking expert and leader in the banking industry. He has spent the last five decades sharpening his skills at one of the largest banks in Latin America. In fact, he joined the second largest lender while he was only seventeen years in 1969.

With his current massive success, many people would assume that Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi scored straight (As) in the banking course. The surprising thing is that he did not even have any background training in banking when he applied for an internship at Bradesco bank.

Luiz attended a college in Brazil where he earned a certificate from the Faculty of Sociology and Politics. While working for the bank, he earned a scholarship to study psychology, philosophy, and letters from Fundacao University. Luiz never thought he would seek a job in the mainstream career. He was passionate about football and thought that he would get a chance to play for the big teams in the world of football. However, his father, who was a banker, convinced him to consider a career in banking. As Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi narrates, after joining the industry in 1969, the rest is history.

He put a lot of effort into his work that earned him one promotion after the other. He started as a Director in the marketing department, then Managing Director of the bank, executive vice president, the CEO of Bradesco Seguros, President of the bank and now he is serving as the chairman. He assumed the current role after the former chairman resigned late last year, paving way for young leaders to take over the banks leadership.

When he was tapped to become the chairman, Luiz needed to step down from his role as the president since the Brazilian banking rules don’t allow an individual to serve in the two offices at the same time. During the race to succeed Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, seven highly qualified vice presidents presented their application to succession committee for consideration. All the eyes were on the recruitment to see whom they would consider to take over as the president of the second largest lender in Latin America.

Many people, including analysts, believed that Mauricio de Minas had an upper hand in succeeding Luiz. However, to their surprise, Octavio de Lazari was considered for the position of the president of the bank. When commenting about Octavio’s appointment, Luiz Carlos Trabuco noted that it was done in accordance with the company’s succession regulation. He continued to note that Octavio was the most qualified to take over from him owing to his immense experience in the banking industry.

Institutional Investor Sahm Adrangi Explains Why He Is Negative on QuinStreet

On April 11, 2018, institutional investor Sahm Adrangi issued a negative report on QuinStreet, Inc. In this report, he explained why his company, Kerrisdale Capital Management, LLC, had taken a short position on this firm. QuinStreet is an internet marketing firm headquartered in Foster City, California. Their stock has quadrupled in recent times and he says his analysis shows this is very unjustified. This company hadn’t been doing well for a long period of time but investors believe this company has been turned around and is doing well. Sahm Adrangi says this is an illusion as QuinStreet has a lot of fake web traffic.

QuinStreet’s business model involves being in the middle of the transaction between a website and online advertisers. Someones go to one of these websites, such as to shop for a new credit card, and QuinStreet manages the ads they see while doing so. However, Sahm Adrangi says they have an outdated business model and this company is very unlikely to survive as how online advertising is managed is rapidly evolving. He also pointed out that almost all the money QuinStreet is generating is coming from just one of their clients, something that the management of this firm doesn’t talk about.

Sahm Adrangi says that his research and that of his company’s analysts show that their recent increase in revenues has been faked. He says QuinStreet has been using malware redirects, bogus leads, and other sketchy ways of generating traffic to their client’s websites. To find out his information he and his team talked to people who used to work for QuinStreet who revealed what was really going on at this company.

Sahm Adrangi, a Yale University graduate, and been in the financial industry for over 10 years. He started out as Deutsche Bank where he worked in the leveraged finance investment banking department. He then moved to Chanin Capital Partners where he was an analyst in their restructuring investment banking group. Just before opening his own investment firm he had worked for Chanin Capital Partners where he was also an analyst.

Lacey and Larkin Discuss Joe Arpaio and His Pardon

Susan R. Bolton is a woman who serves as a judge in the United States right now. She works for a district court located in the Southwestern state of Arizona. Bolton’s actions essentially alarmed no one in the fall of 2017. She gave her OK to Joe Arpaio’s pardon by the current President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. Arpaio was Maricopa County’s sheriff before.

He got a July 2017 conviction that was part of the “criminal contempt” classification. This was for dismissing a command from a federal judge. The command was associated with a lawsuit that took place in 2007. It focused on racial profiling. Arpaio got his pardon shortly before his sentencing was to take place. It was a matter of weeks.

Bolton’s choice ends the newest phase of Arpaio’s story. One big part of his story revolves around the contentious arrests of two people who used to own the Phoenix New Times. These people are Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey.

Larkin and Lacey headed the publication as it published many pieces that discussed the sheriff. Arpaio had been the sheriff for approaching a quarter of a century. Lacey made his opinions regarding the whole situation crystal clear. He agreed with Rex Tillerson and concluded that President Trump isn’t wise.

He stated that the President’s Arpaio pardon only functions to confirm that to the world. He added more by indicating that the situation was the ideal union of a pair of people who are unprincipled and dishonest. Lacey called Arpaio a sheriff who promoted racial prejudice and the harming of human beings. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

He listed a number of things that took place while Arpaio was the sheriff. He talked about severe prison settings. He even mentioned something that was called a “tent city.” People compared it to something that was straight out of a grisly war scene.

Larkin is certainly no Arpaio lover. He remarked that he was horrific as far as imprisoning individuals went. He remarked that he was equally horrific in his sheriff position. He did say, though, that Arpaio had political abilities. He even expressed that he thinks that he paved the way for President Trump’s current position.

Lacey thinks that President Trump completed the pardon as a means of getting the approval of the people who appreciate him in the United States.

Larkin and Lacey got a total $3.75 million from Maricopa County for their settlement. They did a lot with this money as well. They employed it to set up a group that’s called the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. This organization offers grants to groups that focus on the rights of migrants in the region.

It assists groups that are based in all different parts of Arizona. Larkin and Lacey have not left the journalism world permanently in any way. They’re actually diving deeper into it by putting “Front Page Confidential” together. This is a site that delves into things that interfere with the First Amendment and freedom of speech in the United States.

Tony Petrello Has A Longtime Broadway Star Visit His Home

Even though Broadway star Tommy Tune has spent much of his professional career up in New York, he’s still very popular in his hometown of Houston, TX. He was given a warm welcome home when upon the announcement of a performance at the Miller Outdoor Theatre, and the reception was hosted by Houston oil magnate Tony Petrello, the Chairman of Nabors Industries. Petrello has been a fan of Broadway performances having grown up in Newark, NJ near the Broadway scene, and Tune was honored to visit with Petrello and his family at their beautiful Houston home. Both men have been involved in philanthropy in their communities with Petrello extending his hand to numerous charities.

Tony Petrello is a graduate of Yale University with bachelor’s and master’s degrees in advanced mathematics, and while he was there most people thought he would become a mathematics professor like his mentor Serge Lange. But instead he went on to complete law school and decided to help clients with tax and overseas accounts management as an associate and later partner at Baker & McKenzie. Petrello passed the bar exam and became quite a reputable lawyer at the firm, and it was Nabors Industries who he closely guided on accounts management that they reached out and offered him the position of Chief Operating Officer. So in 1991 he left the familiar northeast corner and headed down to Houston.

Petrello served as Chief Operating Officer for 21 years, and in 2011 took over as CEO and Chairman of Nabors. Through various shareholder negotiations and heated meetings, there was an agreement to change things in Nabors governance that paid out Petrello additional bonuses making his compensation for 2013 $68.7 million and earning him recognition as the highest-paid CEO of that year, a feat that’s not since been repeated by him. Throughout his time at Nabors Industries, he’s built up a large portfolio of advanced offshore and modular drilling technology.

Anthony Petrello is the father of a young girl named Carena, and due to premature birth and an illness she suffered, she’s had to struggle with cerebral palsy. It took a tremendous toll on Petrello personally when he learned of the struggles his daughter would always face, but he decided to dedicate his resources to helping her and other children like her. So he became familiar with the Texas Children’s Hospital’s Dan and Jan Duncan Neurological Research Institute and decided to help them out. Through a fundraising party he hosted, Petrello dedicated $7 million to funding new research technology.

Doe Deere & Lime Crime – A Match Made In Heaven

When I ran across an article about this “new” cosmetics company that was certified vegan and cruelty free by PETA and Leaping Bunny, I had to find out more. Thus, I learned about the CEO and founder, Doe Deere. Now, I’ve got a girl crush! Ms. Deere is not only beautiful, smart, and creative, she’s inspiring!

 

Doe was raised in Russia, immigrating to New York at age 17. She attended FIT in New York majoring in fashion design, so creativity and style are part of her natural chemistry. She met her husband when they were in a band together and learned to collaborate as songwriters and promoters. He is now her also her current business partner. They have learned to work well together.

 

In 2004, Doe created and sold her own fashion line on eBay under the account name limecrime – named for her favorite color. She modeled her clothing herself and wanted vivid cosmetics to go with it. At the time, in 2008, the natural look was in – all shades of beige. She started making her own colors for herself and was surprised at the interest she received from other women. It was a natural step to move into creating a cosmetics line to share with them as well. That’s truly what her company is about: using fashion, cosmetics, and hair as forms of self-expression. As written on her website, www.limecrime.com, “As one of the first digitally-native beauty brands, Lime Crime has become a cult favorite and leader in the social + digital space.” She has proven that cosmetics can be sold successfully online. Learn more: https://www.limecrime.com/pages/our-founder

 

It is an inspiration, to all women, to see a woman start small doing something she loves and turn it into a big success. Doe Deere enjoys sharing her experiences and knowledge with other women through occasional speaking engagements. She is an avid supporter of female owned businesses and entrepreneurship. She welcomes female entrepreneurs to contact her for advice through her Instagram.

 

One thing I admire about Doe Deere and Lime Crime cosmetics is how they test their products. No animals! Before a product goes on the shelf, Doe and her staff wear it to see how it performs. Doe is very hands-on in all departments. As CEO, her job is to keep things running smoothly. One day may be spent working on new products, the next with marketing, and the next brainstorming what is new with her Creative Director. Never boring at HQ!

 

Whether you want it for every day, special occasion, Halloween, or just for fun, every woman should have some to play with. The colors are amazing! I love this response she gave in an interview when asked if she had had a failure and how did she overcome it, “Who I am is defined by what I do – which is support and employ women, minorities, and helping those in need.” Words to live by for everyone.
