Deere Doe, Queen of the Unicorns

Doe Deere started out from humble means…and from very far, far away. Deere is originally from Russia, born and raised. She later relocated to New York City, U.S.A where she attended FIT, majoring in Fashion Design. She spent time in both countries, growing up. She has an amazing story of how she developed from a business minded teenager, to one of the largest makeup moguls that owns a make-up brand that is known around the world. Doe Deere is the creator and owner of the popular indie makeup brand, Lime Crime.

At the start of her branching out into the career world, Deere began her entrepreneurship as a teenager who sold temporary tattoos to her friends and peers in Russia at just 13 years of age. She did what every other retail salesperson would do to meet their quota: make them look cool and necessary, and sell, sell, sell! She later moved to New York City and became a musician.

Doe states that being a musician allowed her to appreciate, and be thankful for, small things. Such as being happy for people showing up to your shows, and for learning how to market herself and handle her own career. Deere met her husband in the band she was a part of in New York City, and later, started creating her own makeup. Deere says that she created her own makeup, about a decade ago, because she yearned for bright colored makeup. Lime Crime is known for being one of the first indie makeup brands to create lipstick in bright colors, such as shades of green, blue, and purple. Deere states that she created the brand during a time when having a natural look was in style, late 2000’s. She wanted something to be a unique as her personality.

She soon realized that other girls were interested in the same style and look that she was interested in. From there, Lime Crime was born. Lime Crime has touted itself as makeup that was “made for unicorns”. Meaning that this line of makeup is for people who live to stand out from the crowd, who are bold, and who beg to differ. Apparently, there are a lot of “unicorns” out there, as the brand has been a success for several years. Lime Crime is well-known within the makeup industry and among many renowned makeup artists.

Deere states that her passion behind Lime Crime comes from the need of the “freedom to be herself.” She understands that women are now, more than ever, on a mission to be different and unique, and be unapologetic about it. She advises other women who are ambitious or want to find their place in the world to “tune in to who they are” and that once that has been accomplished, they will be led to their mission and individual purposes in life. Being that this philosophy is what Doe Deere built her brand upon, it makes Lime Crime all the more respectable and gives potential consumers all the more reason to support this company.

The Effects of Contraband Cell Phones in Prison with Robert Johnson

Securus Technologies is a high technology company that is based in Texas. Despite the emerging designers and the competitors in the field, there is none of them that have been able to take its position in the market. The company’s role is to connect the inmates with their loved ones in the free world. They also have a role in protecting the public from getting hurt by the convicts in jail.

Securus Technologies uses the Wireless Containment System to help stop the use of the contraband cell phones in the facilities. The option of eliminating the signals around the cells would have been perfect, but the federal law restricts jamming or blocking of signals from any area. What Securus Technologies is doing is providing a mobile system in the facilities. All the calls that come from the cells pass through them, and they have the power to do what they want with the calls. For the years that the firm has been in the market, they have managed to block 1.7 million inmates.

Convicts having contraband cells in the correctional facilities is a major hazard especially to the officers working in the prisons. It is equally hazardous to the public. Recently a baby was shot in his mum’s arms following an order from the facilities. They said that they were not pleased with the actions of the uncle of the nine months old baby.

Robert Johnson has vowed to keep working towards eliminating all the illegal phones in the cells, following his incidence with the issue at hand. Robinson remembers the fateful morning, which he thought was a normal day like the rest. He had woken up to go to work, but he never got to work on this particular morning. He heard a loud bang on his front door, and he called out to the intruder to come to the hallway to ensure his wife was not hurt.

Sure as he thought, the man came and after a little struggle they were joined by other men, and at this juncture, all he remembers is loads of guns pointed on his head and waking up in a hospital bed. Robert Johnson says that the doctors kept telling his wife that he couldn’t make it. His wife assured him that his purpose in life had not been fulfilled and he wouldn’t die. It must be this faith that held him back.

As his wife predicted, Johnson has been serving to eliminate the contraband cells that are in the facilities. He says that the inmates began the battle and he is the one to end it. Johnson has undergone more than 23 surgeries since the accident. He lives in pain every day of his life, but this has not stopped him from exercising his duty as the Securus Technologies consultant.
