It is happening again, McDonald’s is under fire for their food ingredients. They struggling fast food chain has had negative publicity about their beef, chicken, and now, their mozzarella cheese sticks. A small class action lawsuit has been filed claiming that McDonald’s is engaging in false advertising.
The group led by Jon Urbana and his campers at Next Level Lacrosse camp claims on Bloomberg.com that the sticks do not contain 100% real mozzarella cheese as is advertised, but rather includes other ingredients such as starch as a money-saving filler. Naturally, the company is denying these claims and is prepared to fight for their, semi, good name.
It seems like McDonald’s just cannot stay out of the news lately it is always one thing or another. After last year’s dismal numbers close to 700 stores were closed worldwide in 2015.
The dating app world has not always been what it currently is. The apps that people see in their phone-specific stores have been curated and cultivated to the point that they are the perfect option for people who need to find a new date. They are ideal apps for people who are lonely, people who need friends and people who just want to connect with others. They have always been present on the app stores, but they have not always been successful as what they currently are because of other apps that have been more important to smartphone users.
In fact, just a year ago apps were not as popular as what they are now. People were more interested in tracking their daily calories and focusing on what they did throughout the day than they were in finding a new partner. They also liked to focus on other social media platforms where they could connect with people that they already knew. Dating apps have always been popular, but they are more popular now than they ever have been. The first quarter of 2016 is expected to be one of the biggest times for people who are looking for dates to get what they want out of their app.
Skout is one such app that is doing the trick for many people. The app works with people around the globe to ensure that they are getting what they need out of the experience. These people can come to the app, put in their information and find someone anywhere in the four corners of the world that they can have a connection with. People are not limited to their geographic area, but they can choose to limit themselves within five miles of the spot that they are in at the time.
The app also focuses on things other than location. Skout allows you to choose what you are interested in and make your pick of people who are interested in the same things as you. You can put your own information in about yourself. Things like height, interests and relationship status can be included. Choosing a broader geographical area will give you a better chance at finding someone who will match perfectly to your needs no matter where you are at.
By giving you the opportunity to find exactly what you are looking for, Skout gives you the ability to find a great date that fits all of your needs. You will be able to connect with all of the people who are using the app and you can make the choice to make them your partner or not. You can even use the features that the app provides to block people who are pesky or who just don’t suit your needs.
While many beauty and fashion magazines believe that there is just one “right” way to look, or one fashionable trend in vogue at any given moment, the iconoclastic Doe Deere firmly believes that every woman should feel free to choose their own look. In a recent article, Deere posted her version of several fashion “rules” that can – and should – be broken without recrimination.
Don’t Wear Bold Lip Colors with Bold Eye Make-Up
While many fashion experts recommend not having two bold areas on the face, Deere believes that it is perfectly possible for women to wear both bold colors on the lips as well as strongly emphasized eye make-up.
Don’t Mix Too Many Colors
Deere is synonymous with advocating a funky application of multiple bold colors, so it is no surprise that she goes against the countervailing wisdom not to wear too many different colors. Regularly dressing in a riotous rainbow, Deere believes that every woman should feel free to express themselves with a full gamut of bright colors.
Don’t Mix Too Many Patterns
Just as she firmly believes that wearing multiple colors is a good thing, Deere likewise believes that that women can dress using multiple patterns to great effect. For beginners to the concept of mixing patterns, Deere recommends starting out with muted or monochrome patterns.
Don’t Wear Socks With Heels
A self-confessed “tights addict”, Deere believes that any woman can wear socks or tights with heels and still look wonderfully stylish. For added flair, Deere recommends wearing socks with a different color than the shoes.
Wearing Black is Only for People With Strongly-Colored Hair
While many fashion experts advocate wearing black on nearly any occasion, Deere knows that many style guides recommend against the wearing of too many neutral or black-colored clothes unless one’s hair is unnaturally colorful and bright. Deere, a strong advocate for wearing a riot of bright colors, is firmly in the camp of wearing black clothes for women with any hair color, including more muted tones of brown and ash blonde.
Originally from Russia, Doe Deere quickly became a New York City native, bringing a funky new approach to cosmetics and the fashion world in general. The founder and CEO of Lime Crime Cosmetics, Doe believes that make-up should be used as an expression of personality and style, and that no woman should ever feel that they have to dress in muted or neutral colors.
As a female entrepreneur running a small business, Deere knows what it’s like to struggle to find a toehold in the competitive fashion market. An enthusiastic supporter of women-owned businesses, Deere markets her products to women as a way to achieve liberation and freedom from the constraints of what society deems as the proper or correct way to look.
Oscar Pistorius known for being South African runner, who doesn’t allow his disability to prevent him from competing at a superior level. The 2012 Paralympic Games of the Summer Olympics, where Pistorius once again showed that a disability doesn’t need to keep you from what you love. Pistorius shot his girlfriend by mistake in the early morning of Thursday, February 14, 2013. She was killed at Pistorius’ home in Pretoria. Confessing to shooting Steenkamp, mistaking her as an intruder. He was arrested and immediately charged with murder of Steenkamp on February 15, 2013 in a Pretoria court.

Since its founding in 2010, the California-based online fundraising site GoFundMe has provided a means for a myriad of causes to receive funds sourced over the internet. Among these causes, there is none surely so deserving of attention as that of autism research. Autism, a neurodevelopmental disease, manifesting itself in early childhood, needs much further research to determine its causes and treatment. Over twenty million people around the world are believed to suffer from autism. And while an early diagnosis of autism and effective treatment have been on the increase in the past thirty years, there are still many families around the world utterly bereft of adequate care. If the effects of autism are to be confronted, further research is absolutely essential.
Responding to this need, GoFundMe is currently hosting Autism Rocks, an extraordinary charity organization that promises to make a real difference in the current state of research into this disease. Autism Rocks takes its name from its principal form of fundsourcing: private concerts on an international basis.
Autism Rocks is the brainchild of British businessman Sanjay Shah, whose own experience with autism is close and personal. Shah, whose background is in investment management and banking, is himself the father of a child with autism. Spurred on by his son’s condition and eager to find a way of helping, he had already committed himself to giving regular donations to the Autism Research Trust, a UK-based organization that funds research at Cambridge University.
Inspired by this brush with the world-famous celebrity, Shah determined to inaugurate a series of concerts the primary purpose of which would be the raising of money for autism research. And so Autism Rocks was born. The wildly successful concerts have hosted such world-class performers as Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Joss Stone, and Elvis Costello. Venues have included Paris, Dubai, and London. Shah has plans not only to expand the range of concerts offered, but to market albums featuring his stars. Clearly, the sky’s the limit when the impresario is himself an inspired and committed entrepreneur like Sanjay Shah.
The Human Rights Foundation along with its founder, Thor Halvorseen, did everything it could in order to prevent Nicki Minaj from performing in Angola. However, it did not block her plane or detainee her. The foundation wanted her to make the right decision on her own. However, the musician decided to not do what was best for humanity and instead do what helped out her pocket book instead. Some people might ask what was wrong with performing in Angola and why the Human Rights Foundation should care. Thor Halvorssen pointed out exactly why it is a very important matter and why everyone should care about it.
The nation of Angola, a West African nation, is led by a dictator. This dictator rose to power due to the discover of both diamonds and oil. Many of the world’s blood diamonds come from Angola. These diamonds are unearthed by individuals forced to work, often at gunpoint. The majority of these workers are not paid at all but instead forced into it, being given just enough food and water to survive. It is more or less a concentration camp, with the profits going almost exclusively towards the ruling family. This ruling family takes the money it makes from the diamond and oil industry and buys services for itself in order to enjoy life fuller while making life especially devastating for millions of people living within the country.
The rulers of Angola requested Nicki Minaj to perform for them during the Christmas holidays and offered to pay her $3 million in return. Thor and his Human Rights Foundation instantly saw that Nicki would not only be directly receiving money from the sale of blood diamonds and blood oil, but she would more or less be supporting the dictator and his family by performing specifically for him. Thor educated Nicki and her management team on this as well, requesting her to cancel her performance and instead to not support such an evil dictator.
Human Rights Foundation is the brainchild of Thor who has worked with several other non profit organizations in hopes of improving the lives of others around the world. With his help, millions of people have received shelter, food and clean water.

That is where clients work out their nerves and go in to see a plastic surgeon. Sometimes the reward is worth the risk. Many times what stops the client from going is the fear of being judged. If they are lucky enough to pick, Dr. Jennifer Walden as their surgeon they have just won the lottery in terms of doctors. She is someone that relieves a patients fears, the moment she walks into the office. She is not judgmental or someone that anyone should ever be afraid of. In fact Dr. Walden is a leader in her field, picked as one of the top surgeons by Harper’s Bazaar.
Success has not changed the way Dr. Walden is as a person, which is what everyone wants in a doctor. She is down to earth and truly cares about her patients. She went in to the field to help people. The fact that she has been so successful is because her depth of compassion.
Plastic surgery is not something that should be scary. It is something people should be comfortable with. If a client goes to a doctor and does not get the same compassion as someone like Dr. Walden, then they should probably see someone else.
