Doe Deere And The Creation Of Lime Crime Costmetics

Doe Deere is the founder and Chief Financial Officer or Lime Crime Cosmetics. To her cosmetics are all about what feels right in the moment and expressing that through freedom and self-expression. Deere, born in Russia and moving New York City at age 17, developed a line of cosmetics in 2008 that featured a line-up of cosmetics that were unique, colorful, and cruelty-free. Her company has now grown to have fans throughout the world who are attracted to Lime Crime Cosmetics bright, bold, and lively lipsticks, eye shadows, and nail polishes.

Deere has said that the idea for Lime Crime came about in 2004 when she was creating a do-it-yourself makeup line. She couldn’t find brands that were colorful and bright, even such a location as New York City. This inspired her to create her own brand which she modeled herself. She has also said that sometimes inspiration for new colors and features can take up to months to come to her, but once they do she moves quickly on developing the new product. She has also focused on eCommerce instead of brick & mortar stores. She was told that women wanted to try makeup on in person and her focus on eCommerce wouldn’t work but she disagreed. In order to women to know what the makeup will look like on them, she developed an “on-lip” lipstick swatch where you show them the color on actual lips instead of a piece of paper.

One piece of advice that Doe Deere imparts is to always trust your gut. She points out there will be times where you don’t have access to all of the information you need and so you have to rely on your instincts in order to move forward. She also says to treat your employees, partners, and vendors with the love and respect that they deserve. She believes she gets more accomplished by working with people and providing positive reinforcement than taking a heavy-handed approach.

With Lime Crime Deere has revolutionized makeup in a number of ways. In addition to the magical colors that form the basis of her line of makeups, they also are made at the highest standards for quality and performance. Lime Crime Cosmetics have also been certified Cruelty Free and Vegan by both People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and Leaping Bunny.

How CTRMA is Improving the Transportation System in Austin

The annual Williamson County Growth Summit was held last December at the Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel. The main topic of discussion at the summit was how the county would meet the transportation needs of the residents in the suburbs. The summit featured a panel of professionals in the transportation sector including Jared Ficklin who is a product designer at ArgoDesign, Mike Heiligenstein who is the Executive Director at CTRMA, and Leandre Johns who is the Texas External Affairs Director of Uber. The mayor of Round Rock Alan McGraw was the moderator of the panel.


Heiligenstein said that he was aware of the impact that autonomous cars would have. He cautioned against depending on them since the adoption rate was very slow. He stated that the suburbs would experience an influx of residents in coming years and the need to improve the capacity of the roads was high. He also called for the development of smart roads which would help to improve the driving experience.


Johns mentioned that ride-sharing apps such as Uber would deliver first and last-mile solutions for commuters. These apps could help people reach their destinations by covering the limitations of public transit. Ficklin advised policymakers to amend the building and land codes so as to ease the adoption of autonomous cars. This is because the parking garages for autonomous cars would be very different.


Mike Heiligenstein has served as the Executive Director of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority since it was founded in 2002. He worked as a public official in Williamson County for more than two decades before joining the authority. Mike Heiligenstein is currently the president of the International Bridge, Tunnel, and Turnpike Association. The authority was started to design and implement innovative transportation solutions in Williamson and Travis counties.


CTRMA developed the 183A road in Williamson County which was one of the first roads to incorporate an electronic tolling system. They also partnered with Metropia to develop a mobile app that recommends alternative routes to motorists. The app is integrated with the traffic system in the region. It analyses data to show which other roads commuters can use. There are approximately one million empty seats on cars in Austin each day. The authority realized that filling these seats would help in decongestion. That is why they partnered with Carma (a ride-sharing app) to encourage more people to carpool.

Oncotarget’s Struggle for A Cancer-Free World Bearing Fruits

Oncotarget is a peer-reviewed medical journal founded in 2010. Oncotarget is published on a weekly basis by Impact Journals and covers oncology research. Most importantly, Oncotarget focuses on research involving treatments and protocols deployed to enhance the well-being of cancer patients, potential therapy targets, as well as the clinical basis of all strains of cancer.

Oncotarget adheres to the principles of COPE (Committee on Publication Ethics) and is a member of the body. The impact publication project seeks to define the healthcare professionals and patient acceptance of new as well as existing drugs, treatment methods, and available forms of therapy. Oncotarget tries to improve the lives of cancer patients and to improve the outcomes of these procedures by discovering new information.

Oncotarget places emphasis on patient perspectives vis-à-vis satisfaction, adherence, and their quality of life. They employ certain treatment protocols, existing therapeutic agents, as well as the impact of management programs on the lives of patients. The journal’s recent success on the oncology front has led to the exploration of other medical fields.

According to Research Gate, Oncotarget is dedicated to the attainment of a world without disease under the leadership of a group of elite researchers and scientists from the world over.

The journal advocates for the use of basic clinical science to eradicate disease and break boundaries within medical specialties towards quicker discoveries and make scientific research widely and rapidly available.

On E-cigarettes and Alleged Damage to Gum Tissue

A recent survey on the effects of e-cigarettes financed by National Institutes of Health was published on Oncotarget. The research, which was conducted under the leadership of UR’s Department of Environmental Medicine professor Irfan Rahman (Ph.D.), was the first ever on the subject on molecular and cellular levels.

E-cigarettes are known to be the safer option, popular among people struggling to quit smoking and the younger generation. However, this particular study shows that e-cigarettes can cause multiple oral infections and cell damage.

The problem with e-cigarettes according to the study is the flavoring which damages the gums. The lead scientists urged manufacturers to disclose all the compounds used to manufacture the flavors so that more research can be carried out on the effects of e-cigarettes.

Apart from this specific study, a growing body of scientific data suggests that the chemicals found in e-cigarettes have the potential effects of adverse health conditions associated with convention smokes. Professor Rahman also published another study with similar findings on pollution and health effects of e-cigarettes in late 2015.
