Knowing extra protection from the sun is necessary, certain flavors contain an SPF.
According to the makeup blog Catcher in the Style, during her makeup tip Monday, this blogger praised the Evolution of Smooth products (http://catcherinthestyle.com/evolution-of-smooth-lip-balm-review/). She states that this lip balm is long lasting and its egg-shaped packaging has made it easier to keep up with. Although winter time is usually hard on her lips, after a month of using the EOS lip balm, she noticed her lips stayed moisturized without a weird build up that occurs with many other products.

Petroleum-free, in addition to other health and beauty products, EOS lip balms can be purchased via the Evolution of Smooth website. They are also available on most online retail sites like ulta.com and  luckyvitamin.com as well as supermarkets nationwide and Canada.

Jose Manuel Gonzalez: A Statesman Who Listens

September 28, 2016 // by VideoIPOtv

Jose Manuel Gonzalez is a full-time deputy senator of the state of Guarico. He takes his responsibility seriously and so he spends most of his time playing an active role in committees and meetings. He wants to see his constituents face to face. That is why Jose Manuel Gonzales is so well respected within Guarico. All of the major caucuses want to work with him. he has the best interest of the people in heart whenever he speaks and he is concerned about the future of Venezuela.

Jose thinks that politicians are not fit to be in charge of the nation because their policies have ruined it. People have submitted to the temptation of corruption and so there was massive smuggling, overpricing, and outright theft of government property which has resulted in an economic crisis for the nation. Some politicians tried to approve a 50% increase in wages at a time when the people could not even find work. A policy like this would only force businesses to cut back on employees further. The people are fed up with the method of using band-aids to cover up its gaping wounds. they want real change that will feed their families and restore life to normal.

Jose says that the best way to fix the current problems is through the nation coming together. People must make tough decisions and put their own interests aside to help future generations. The government should be where this occurs but politicians have ignored their duty thus far. Venezuela requires economic growth and peace. There needs to be social inclusion so that people can escape the devastating effects of poverty. Jose also wants to bring about an end to populism. He says that the nation needs to emphasize freedom and the return of justice so that people believe in their government again.

Jose Manuel Gonzalez says he believes in the core values of respect for property rights, respect for civil order and opposition to warlordism and a rational approach to government that tries to include as many people as possible. He does not want to return to the days of the past.

Relmada Amends Lawsuit Against Laidlaw to $20 Million

September 16, 2016 // by VideoIPOtv

Early this year, clinical stage development company Relmada Therapeutics announced it had filed a lawsuit against Laidlaw & Company (UK) Ltd. in the state of Nevada. In accordance with this action, they also recently implemented an 8-k filing, increasing the damage amount to $20 million.

The new filing amends the original papers to include breach of fiduciary duty, injunctive relief, defamation and business disparagement, tortious interference with prospective economic advantage and several violations.

For years, Laidlaw served as Relmada’s primary investment banker. They were the company’s placement agent in Relmada’s May 2014 and December 2011 offerings. The firm also served as Relmada’s financial adviser during their merger with Camp Nine, Inc., after which Relmada became a public company.

The therapeutics company has alleged Laidlaw violated a number of federal securities laws, including disseminating misleading and false proxy materials that hurt Relmada’s stockholders and reputation. While a prestigious firm in its own right, Laidlaw has a history of noncompliance with securities laws. The firm has also been noted for consistently hiring compliance officers, brokers and other executives from less than reputed brokerage firms with histories of FINRA violations.

Relmada argues that the law firm’s recent behavior has incurred significant expenses as a result of Relmada’s efforts to protect their stockholders from Laidlaw’s negligent actions. Further, Relmada attests their NASDAQ standing was adversely and materially affected. As evidence, Relmada has referred to a decline in the company’s stock price. Between October 2015 and January 2016, Relmada’s stock went from $4.03 to $1.65 per share. This drop took place despite noticeable positive results in the company’s research for treating opioid dependence indicators and chronic pain. There was also the completion of its study of d-Methadone for neuropathic pain.

Both companies have issued letters to stockholders and other pertinent parties about these action(s).

Many similar organizations target a specific class of people. However, George believes trying to help all people will lead to helping the people other foundations leave in the dark. This was his initial goal when starting this organization.

That is why his initial approach to the field of philanthropy was helping South Africans get scholarships to great schools.

The Agricultural and Political Sectors on Guárico

August 29, 2016 // by VideoIPOtv

About Jose Manuel

Jose Manuel Gonzalez is an agricultural business person. Jose was the president of FEDECAMARAS. Currently, he is the deputy of the National Assembly by Guárico state. Jose is a good example of people who can succeed in two complementary areas. Jose proves that by doing well in the agricultural sector and the political sector simultaneously.

Agriculture

Just like other sectors of the economy, agriculture is essential. Gone are the days when Venezuela would produce 500,000 tons of rice and 300 thousand tons of corn. Today the country has the foreign exchange to import. According to Jose, the action condemns the country to a roller coaster type of supply because no one has a guarantee for anything. People do not count with spare parts and supplies, so they do not attain much.

The assembly has been trying to comprehend the situation of agriculture. However, it has not yet managed to understand the situation. The closed-door government clearly pointed the downsides; however, nothing was done about it. The coalition government was fragile. Imports tend to distort as a result of the persevere organization of exchange rates. Jose Manuel Gonzales explains that the distortions are the culprits that are smuggling and causing inequalities in bi-national business. Manuela explains that if the government can get rid of the distortions, then the issues will end.

Insecurity is another factor that affects the productive outcome. Guárico is not a safe state. There are about ten kidnapping cases in that state every week, not forgetting the high rates of carjacking. It is advisable for the municipality in Guárico to do something about the situation. The government can import food and avoid bad economic policy since it is causing impunity.

Political balance

Jose explains how much people are tired of the current situation where political parties own the country. In most cases, the interests of political party overcome those of the country. It is important for the country to come up with an agreement to get out of this crisis. It will also ensure that people are not in poverty anymore. It is also important for the assembly to make decisions that ensure there is a democracy. However, Jose still feels that the country should have unity and that he aims at fulfilling his administrative duties.

Evolution of Smooth Lip Balms Nourish And Protect All Year Round

August 13, 2016 // by VideoIPOtv

There are tons of lip balms out there, but not every brand is a winner. Just because a lip balm smells good doesn’t mean a thing, because a balm must do more than carry a scent. That is why Evolution of Smooth, known as EOS, takes the simple lip balm to a whole new plateau and delivers on every beautiful detail.

First, let’s look at the science and structure of our lips. The fullness of your lips has little to do with how much sun they can withstand. All lips at every age need constant nourishment and protection from the elements, but especially out in the sun during those searing hot summer days.

Our lips lack protective oil glands, which means they dry out quicker than other parts of your face. Lips are also thinner in skin structure and are quite sensitive. If you enjoy soaking up the sun without lip balm protection, you’re taking a big chance. The skin care experts say to never go out with bare naked lips, or you risk developing skin cancer. Arm yourself with an excellent, organic lip balm like the line-up from Evolution of Smooth.

The proper lip balms contain moisturizing and soothing ingredients with a good dose of broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. They also feature great blends of Vitamin E, jojoba oil and shea butter, formulas Evolution of Smooth have carefully created for the ultimate balm.

Even nicer is the unique shape of EOS lip balms. The sphere ball of buttery balm glides smoothly over your entire lips, delivering the nourishment and protection you’re looking for. Best of all, the flavors are impressive and long-lasting with choices like Vanilla Mint, Blackberry Nectar, Pomegranate Raspberry and Strawberry Sorbet [https://www.amazon.com/Organic-Smooth-Strawberry-Passion-Honeydew/dp/B009QTDYYA]. EOS products are also available on luckyvitamin.com.

Evolution of Smooth lip balms maintain healthy, moist lips that are always kissable soft.

Class Dojo School Communication Revolution

August 8, 2016 // by VideoIPOtv

An article in the 74 Million announced the inception of a revolutionary application being used in classrooms. Theis new concept is an application which tracks the day to day responses of children in public schools. ClassDojo is an innovative communication technique being used by 2/3 of the schools in America. It is an application that allows for communication between students, teachers, and parents. It is intended for the primary grades and the response by teachers has been overwhelming. It allows teachers to keep track of their students whenever they deserve a compliment or if they require further effort or better behavior for development.
There are a number of YouTube videos available which explain how the Class Dojo system works.
This is an educational concept that assists with work inside the classroom itself and allows for more communication between parents and their children in school, and if the parent signs up, they are able to have communication with the teacher. Although the concept calls for an Ipad or Iphone, it is hoped that students without such devices still have access to the program.
One of the added benefits of the Class Dojo system is that the parents can have access to how their students did during their class day. For example, positive behavior can be recorded by the system and conversely negative behavior can also be noted for the benefit of the parents. Now parents have another question to ask their children about their school day; how many positive or negative marks did they received today. Now instead of asking your child aimless questions about their day in school you can say, “What happened in math class, today?” In this case, you would know that your child received a positive or a negative mark, and your child having a reference point to think about would have to come up with an answer. The parents can now further reinforce the positive by praise or with ice cream. The student is proud of the achievement and praise and learns to like the system responsible for this interaction.
This Class Dojo system is the best news for public schools since the introduction of computers to the classroom. It is a complex system, which will make good students great and it can change bad students into more responsible and better students.
