Planning an Event Everyone Will Remember

Imagine a first birthday party designed to look like it was taking place at a cozy, picture-perfect farm. Themed events for children are always popular and many children love farms and country themes. These types of party designs make it possible to have something that is fun, bright and exciting for the young guests, but also visually appealing for the adults in attendance as well. With red and white gingham tablecloths and napkins, mason jar drink cups and apple barrel gift boxes for the guests, this is a theme that is incredibly versatile. This type of look would work easily for a little boy or girl or could even be used for an adult party with a few additional tweaks.

Farm Table

This is the type of creativity that clients can expect from 23 Layers, an event planning company in NYC.

Marc Sparks Creates Spark Tank for Social Change

One thing that you can say about Marc Sparks is that he is always keeping himself busy and now he has developed yet another interest. The concept of the “Spark Tank” is to encourage companies with an innovative social concept to have their executives present their entrepreneurial plan to create success in society. Representatives of not for profit organizations around his area of Texas were encouraged to submit plans and explain what they would do with $5,000 to significantly impact the lives of people in a positive way.

Round one of the Spark Tank has happened and through careful deliberation, three finalists were chosen. They were The House of Eli, a transitional living facility, Metro Relief, a mobile soup kitchen, and Dogs Matter, providing foster care for pets of addicts.

Each of the three was brought together to give their presentations to the Spark Tank Panel on April 27th. Each of the presentations was creative and unique but in the end, there could only be one winner and it was Dogs Matter. This was done after a long and detailed deliberation, and it was clear that there are a lot of great efforts to help others out there.  Read more: @msparks5010

Tools to Sweat-Proof Summer Makeup

Summer will arrive sooner than you think. Now is a good time to start practicing to make sure your summer makeup stays in place. Some of the world’s top makeup artists recommend these tips.

Always Use Primer
Apply primer after your moisturizer and before you add your foundation. Primer is a base for your foundation and it helps your makeup last longer. It is also a good way to help minimize pores, lock in moistures, smooth skin textures and prepare your skin for flawless makeup application. Try to pick up a primer with sunscreen if your moisturizer does not contain SPF.

Waterproof Concealer
It is hard to hide blemishes when your concealer melts away. Try using waterproof cream formula concealer that will stay on your face when you are running around in hot weather.

Lips that Stay in Place
To make sure your lips stay put try a silicone-based lip color. This lip formula does not seep into your lip creases. Unlike most lip colors, a silicone-based lip formula last longer and does not wear off within a couple of hours. Lip formulas that last longer usually helps keep your lips hydrated as you pucker throughout the day.

Use a Creamy Eyeshadow
Try applying a creamy eyeshadow over your primer, rather than a powdered eyeshadow. The good thing is waterproof creamy eyeshadows will not cake or display creases in sweltering weather. By using creamy eyeshadows, it provides a longer lasting vivacious look for your eyes and gives a smudge-free appearance.

George Soros teams up with the Libre Foundation to Stop Trump

George Soros finds the 2016 election as surreal as many of his fellow Americans. The Republican front-runner holds positions such as forcing Mexico to pay for a wall, placing a ban on Muslim immigration, and forcing Muslims to wear special IDs. Political commentators across the country cannot resist engaging in Godwin’s law and comparing reality TV star Donald Trump to a former German dictator. Soros, who has donated several million dollars to the campaign of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton decided to take the election more seriously when Trump won the Indiana primaries.

Soros hopes to stop Trump from gaining the presidency. He furthered this goal by meeting with members of the Libre Foundation, a Hispanic advocacy group. Over 80% of Hispanics oppose Trump and his anti-immigrant positions. The Foundation plans to use this money and donations gained from other sources to bring more Latinos to the polls in the November general elections.

Despite the fear over Trump winning the presidential election, likely Democratic voters do not seem to have the enthusiasm that Republicans supporting Trump have. None of the Democratic presidential debate gained the audience that the Republican debates had, and a smaller percentage of likely voters head to the polls in the primaries. Although Hillary Clinton is the presumptive nominee, Sanders could still win the popular vote as the California primary has yet to be held.

Soros chose not to donate to any Democratic campaign in 2008 or 2012 because he failed to influence the 2004 election of George W. Bush. Many Democratic candidates attempted to gain his support unsuccessfully during these campaign years. Markedly different circumstances mark 2012, however. China and Europe may be on the brink of another economic collapse that could send the world back into the Great Recession. The Great Recession occurred after the housing market collapsed, and it was eased when the federal government forced the banks to take millions of dollars. The phrase “too big to fail” entered the American lexicon at this time.

Venezuela Endures Worsening Electricity Situation

Many are working in Venezuela by candlelight these days, according to a recent Corporation Wiki report. The country is suffering from an extreme power shortage. Lighting candles is the only option for many since the government has mandated the cutting off of power. The rationing of electricity is done for one single reason: there is only so much electricity left. Once wattage is used, it is not being replaced.
In hindsight, Venezuela was overly reliant on hydroelectric power. A massive, sustained drought has brought the ability to generate electricity to a standstill. The nation now falls back over 130 years into the past (at times) when power is deliberately cut off.

To say this has created economic and political instability in the country would be a dramatic understatement. Things are only going to get worse until more power is produced. The “rolling cuts” of power only last for four hours. Once they pass, power returns. If additional electricity is not generated, the duration of those power outages is going to increase. Political and economic instability is likely to increase as well.

Even if the massive drought were to end, the memories of the current disastrous situation is not likely to fade from the minds of people like Norka Luque who’s experiencing it. In time, the drought and the power outages will end but Venezuela is not likely to be the same, politically, ever again.
