Blogging To Provoke Thought

Clay Siegall, the CEO of Seattle Genetics, has put together a blog where he publishes links to articles, most of which seem to come from the National Public Radio (NPR) website, of interest largely on scientific topics. The articles are very interesting, and in fact, the most recent item published on his site is based on speculation as to whether Neanderthals and humans actually kissed.

The point of this story is that Neanderthals, with their very limited life expectancy, did not floss, or otherwise clean between their teeth. That in mind, recently Neanderthals were uncovered at a site in Spain, and because of this lack of flossing, there is fossilized plaque on their teeth and gums that is being studied for clues as to how they lived.

The research revealed that they ate rhinoceros, sheep and mushrooms, but there was something far more telling in their findings. A genome, which is associated with human gum disease, was detected. This has led some leading researchers and scientists to conclude that humans and Neanderthals likely kissed.

Perhaps Clay Siegall did not intend for this to happen, however, the next article on his blog, which links to another story on NPR, has the “mouth” as a central them once again. In this story, pictures from the Cassini spacecraft, that has been orbiting Saturn for some 13 years, has sent back photos of what some say looks like a ravioli.

The title of this article includes the word “mouthful” because this tiny moon looks like a ravioli. The depiction from the spacecraft is actually that of a tiny moon Pan, which is a satellite that orbits quite close to the planet, and completes a full rotation of Saturn every 14 hours.

Another recent link to an NPR article was to that of an article by Ruth Chang about how making tough choices can be empowering. Ms. Chang, a professor in philosophy at Rutgers University, posits that one choice is not always better than another, and once this fact is accepted, the decision-making process becomes a better-understood form of choosing among what well could just be difficult options. Her contribution was introduced through a special episode called “Decisions, Decisions, Decisions.”

Mr. Siegall uses his position and notoriety to create a blog that links to great topics offered by those that are arguably in the top of their fields. His blog represents an eclectic mix of thought-provoking topics.

Softer, fuller hair with Wen by Chaz Dean

Any girl – or guy for that matter – with long hair knows the struggles. It is either fine hair that gets greasy easily, or thick hair that frizzes the minute you use a styling device on it.

If you are one of those people in the market for new hair products, one of the ones worth checking out is Wen by Chaz Dean. The reviews have been terrific, and one woman even tried it out for several days and documented it for Bustle. Emily McClure, or the guinea pig in this hair experiment, tried WEN for a full week and took pictures every day of her progress and posted them on Twitter.

Wen by Chaz Dean is an all-in-one product, including shampoo, conditioner, and styling gel, which took some getting used to. Emily followed the instructions on the bottle which included using much more of the product than she was used to with her previous hair routine, but she reported out that it felt healthier and fuller almost immediately.

While Emily found that she had better results when she used the product when showering in the morning (rather than her preferred routine of showering in the evening), she quickly got used to the routine – and the compliments. Friends noticed her hair was fuller and healthier, and her hair was not greasy, but rather soft and bouncy.

Take a look at Emily’s progress, and maybe give it a try to see how Wen by Chaz Dean can help your hair be its softest and fullest.

The Many Styles of Wengie

I started by going to youtube and searching for Wengie. She has so many different types of videos out there and such a huge following. When you put in Wengie hair into the search bar there are several videos that come up about hair hacks. I chose the first hair hack video titled “10 Hair HACKS every LAZY PERSON Should KNOW!!! AWESOME LIFE HACKS FOR HAIR!“. The first thing you notice is how colorful Wengie is and how lively she is. She starts by talking about her fans and how grateful she is, and that because of that she is giving away a laptop. After a couple of minutes and a skit involving eating unhealthy food, she begins explaining that a good diet will is a key step towards having great hair. She seems very knowledgeable and even goes into detail about which vitamins are needed for healthy hair. The next hack is an easy braid that can be done by pretty much any person. The hack after involves using shampoos that are sulfate free, because sulfate is harmful to your hair and your hair color. Wengie gives different ideas on how to keep track of your bobby pins by using a tic tac container or magnetic strips you can put anywhere. She also describes using a metal utensil as a curling iron when you do not have one. She is quite genius. Wengie even uses a bobby pin to keep braids from coming loose. There is a section on hiding roots by changing your parting line, how to use your hair dryer while you are doing your makeup, using hot glue to keep a hair clip from slipping, and using an unused clean sock to help create a perfect messy bun. Wengie ends the video with a very bubbly conclusion and thanks her followers again. Each hack is easy and possible for any person who does not have much time or is just to lazy to spend an hour doing thier hair.


I Trusted My Gut, and Now I Am a Trendsetter, Says Cosmetologist Doe Deere

She discovered that she was not cut out for the insurance industry. On this account, she decided to try out something that had always been on her mind. Her heart was into cosmetics. She had seen the loophole in the cosmetics market, being a consumer herself, and she plunged right into it. She chose the road less traveled despite a fair share of warnings from marketing and other ‘experts.’ Her cosmetics company Lime Crime is now flourishing online business that delivers assorted and quality cosmetic products to a large client base in New York and elsewhere.

The journey picked up in 2008. Lime Crime now develops lipsticks, eye shadows, nail polishes and other cosmetic products. Together with her husband, Mark, an intelligent and humorously witty individual who also serves as president of the company, plus the talented team at the company’s disposal, Doe Deere has grown to achieve what most startup entrepreneurs dream about; brand recognition.

She attributes the recent upsurge and success in the company’s business to her ability in trusting her gut. Without which, she says, the idea to start a cosmetics company would never have seen the light of day.

Doe’s daily challenge is to navigate along with the clients. The company has developed good communication policy both for internal and external purposes. Selling products online requires terse and speedy messaging. Unlike the traditional over-the-counter marketing where a customer can try out the lipstick brand, online sampling and purchase is a radical way of engaging a customer. This is done by constant and helpful information dissemination. Doe Deere is active on social media platforms where she shares helpful information and messages. He is quite an interactive person.

Doe Deere is a very positive person. She is addicted to the bright side of life. She infuses energy in the people around her. She is also an avid reader, having read among other book titles, Donald Trump’s Think Big & Kick Ass. She reads extensively in a bid to gain new perspectives on investment and life in general.

Apart from cosmetics, Russian-born, New York-raised Doe Deere cannot hide her mad love for pets. She has three beautiful pet cats. She regularly donates to Bide-A-Wee, a pet rescue organization based in New York.
