Doug Levitt’s Eight Year Road Trip Across America

The Greyhound Bus line is not the first choice for many travelers seeking expediency or privacy, but it serves as a comfortable and safe solution for those unable to afford these conveniences. For Doug Levitt, the Greyhound Bus line served as an eight year creative experiment; a cultural magnifying glass on the lives and locales that animate the endless American road.

It was the tragic circumstances of his father’s death that anchored a powerful artistic motivation in Doug Levitt, particularly a passion for music, enticing him to join a gospel choir in his teens. Growing up in Washington D.C, raised by a pragmatically conservative mother, he also gained a sensitive political awareness early on.

Levitt spent the late 90’s in London, working as a foreign correspondent at several major news networks including NBC and ABC. In 2001, Levitt left London and moved to Kentucky to pursue singing and song writing. He met with music producer David Henry, a mutually fruitful partnership that would ultimately give birth to The Greyhound Diaries, an ambitious multimedia experiment combining Levitt’s journalistic talents with his musical passions. This gesture was largely inspired by the culturally significant efforts of the Works Progress Administration, a part of Roosevelt’s New Deal in the 1930’s. This program served to create jobs and fund artistic pursuits for many unemployed Americans.

Levitt found many historical parallels with the economic downturn in 2004 and felt that a unique opportunity was presented for him to give voice to the kind of folks traveling up and down the nation in Greyhound buses. Armed with a journal, a guitar, and a camera, he stepped on a Greyhound bus and kept going until he had put around 80,000 miles behind him, and a treasure trove of experience. Out of this, Doug produced two albums, over 10,000 pictures, a book, a web series, and several live performances. A profound takeaway from this experience, Levitt mentions, is how our need for stories is compelled by our need to connect with others, from whatever part of the road they may arise from.

Clinton May be Best Option Remaining

Charles Koch, half of the Koch brothers who own and control the conglomerate Koch Industries discussed the remaining options for President and indicated that Hillary Clinton may be the better candidate choice than the remaining Republican candidates stating that it is possible.

Koch also looked back on the Presidency of Hillary’s husband, Bill, and indicated that he may have done a better job than George W. Bush who greatly expanded the size and scope of the government by 2.5 times during his time as President. While he didn’t prefer Bill Clinton wholeheartedly over Bush, there were certain aspects of his time in office that he did appreciate.

Charles Koch has long supported conservative Republican candidates and the smaller role that he believes government should take and has put his money where his mouth is, supporting many conservative causes. Overall, Koch is looking for less of a centralized concentration of power at the hands of government and believes that it is the responsibility of individuals, rather than government, to take of their own interests.

While these beliefs are right in line with the conservative ideals that many Republican candidates undertake and support, the current remaining candidates, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, are not the options that Koch would consider supporting as he believes that their views and stances are monstrous on many levels.

Koch has indicated that he has yet to spend any of his Super PACs money on the 2016 election, despite spending almost $400 million during the 2012 election cycle. His hesitation in supporting a candidate is based on his lack of common ground with the remaining options for President and his opposition to creating negative advertisements denouncing a candidate like Donald Trump.

His major reason for not bad mouthing or creating negative ads is that he feels as if doing so is pushing one candidate against the other and not serving the role that they should be as role models for the people. To support Hillary Charles Koch indicated that he would need to believe that her actions would not follow her words before supporting her.

Koch is reported to have raised $900 million for the 2016 election cycle. While he is unlikely to use this money to support Hillary Clinton, he may not be inclined to support any specific Republican Candidate for the Presidency either. Instead the funds may end up being used on smaller key races or rolled forward to the next election cycle.

These birth defects are relatively common, but are easily corrected by simple facial surgery procedures. However, in many third-world countries, families do not have access to such medical interventions, with the result that many children have to learn to live with a deformity that isolates and alienates them. To rectify this situation, Operation Smile has not only provided more than a quarter of a million free surgeries to young people in more than sixty countries around the world. It has also established educational programs for training local physicians and set up student-leadership missions.

George Soros Warns of Danger for the EU

George Soros was recently profiled in an article for CNBC. Soros issued strong words of caution on https://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/people/george-soros regarding the European Union (EU) and its stance on the current refugee crisis. Soros warned that if the leaders of the EU do not act cooperatively soon to address the EU crisis, then the entire region could be headed towards disaster. George Soros explained that the asylum seekers are incredibly desperate right now and that the numbers of refugees fleeing their civil warn torn home countries is on the rise. Soros penned an essay for the New York Review of Books in which he estimated that the EU should be prepared to absorb each year between 300,000 and 500,000 refugees. The estimated financial toll that this surge in refugee numbers will exact on the EU could be an estimated $34 billion annually, according to George Soros. Although Soros recognized that this number can seem staggering, the longer term consequences of not adequately preparing to deal with the refugee crisis could be much higher for the EU. In response to questions about where the budget for the refugee crisis should come from, George Soros pointed to the European Commission’s Multi annual Financial Framework and the triple-A credit rating of the EU, which he implored should be utilized immediately to surge funding for this crisis.

Soros has a long history of standing up for the rights of immigrants on http://www.nybooks.com/articles/2016/02/11/europe-verge-collapse-interview/ and speaking out in times of humanitarian crisis. Ever since he founded the Open Society Foundations, Soros has been widely recognized as a strong advocate for human rights and economic development in the poorest and most marginalized corners of the world.

He has been extremely generous in his philanthropic contributions to a variety of causes supporting human rights, freedom of speech, economic and business development, inclusion and integration. Soros was one of the strongest supporters of ending apartheid in South Africa through his generous contributions to provide educational opportunities to black students.

Soros is particularly knowledgeable about international financial markets and recognizing global trends. He has written over a dozen books on various topics ranging from economic and politics to social issues.

FIGHTING FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

Yeonmi Park was born on 4th October 1993. She is a North Korean human rights activist and a defector. She ran away from china in 2007 to settle in South Korea in 2009. She was born in a politically connected family and she was an educated lady. The reason why Yeonmi started to advocate for victims of trafficking and work to promote human rights across the world is because at one time her and her mother were victims of human trafficking.

Doe Deere Doesn’t Play By The Rules

In an era where feminism is becoming more and more mainstream it’s increasingly more important to know who the feminine icons are. Doe Deere happens to be one of them, but not in the way you might think. Fashion and beauty are important in our society, but that’s not going to make one worthy of admiration on it’s own.

Doe Deere is not only a fashion icon, but a business inspiration as well. Deere created the popular cosmetic line, Lime Crime. Make-up became a part of her life at a young age, and her skills really developed in her 20s. While her business began as an Ebay shop, it has certainly grown.

Deere began experimenting with looks in 2006, and developed her brand in 2008. She prides her brand on being different, breaking the rules, and thinking outside the box. As with any prominent figure, Deere does have her fair share of negative input. She deals with it simply by ignoring it; ladies, take note!

Deere pays special attention to live-out her company’s values. Bustle featured an article that outlines her best tips for breaking the most common fashion rules. The original article can be found here: http://www.bustle.com/articles/126827-doe-deere-of-lime-crimes-favorite-fashion-beauty-rules-to-break
Deere’s advice seems pretty simple, do the opposite of whatever the rule says.

Her best tips are:
DO try a bold lip with your bold eyeshadow, and DO mix your colors. It’s no fun keeping your make-up routine simple, and if you want to make a statement, why not be bold?! Who knows, breaking these two rules might give you a confidence boost.

Mix as many patterns as you want, and try wearing open-toed shoes with socks. There really is no wrong way to pair patterns, and as the old saying goes; the more, the merrier. Socks are not often thought of when putting a look together, but Deere says they can be used to make a statement.

If you have unnaturally colored hair try a neon colored shirt anyway, and don’t worry about dressing your age. While Deere believes in breaking the rules, she does say that it’s important to pay attention to the colors that are being mixed between hair and clothes. Certain color palettes just look better together. As far as dressing your age goes, Deere says that if you like it, then it’s appropriate to wear.

“True style knows no age!”
