Skiers have enjoyed the Northern California’s ski slopes for decades. Back in the 1960s, the Lake Tahoe area was considered one of the top ski destinations in the country thanks to the popularity of the Squaw Valley Ski Resort. But a lot has happened in the ski industry over the last 55 years.

New ski resorts have popped up all over the United States, but the last three or four years were not the best years for skiers, although the 2015/2016 season was a good one. Lake Tahoe has enjoyed a surge in ski activity thanks to the scenic appeal of the area, and the hard work of residents like Andy Wirth.

According to Sierrasun, Andy Wirth is the Chief Executive Officer of the Squaw Valley/ Alpine Meadows Ski Resort. Mr. Wirth has been in that position since 2012. Andy serves on the board of other businesses in the area. He was just named the Chairman of the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board of Trustees. Andy has been instrumental in bringing more airline service to the area from New York and California.

Airport service is essential during the ski season. But Lake Tahoe has another issue that is more pressing, according to Wirth, and that is the congestion that plagues skiers during the winter, and causes anxiety for the local residents all year long. Just like other cities around the country, Lake Tahoe has a serious traffic problem, and Wirth wants to do something about it.

There’s a redevelopment plan in the works that will ease the congestion as well as make the Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows Resort a 12 month-a-year resort. Andy is an outdoorsman that likes to run, hike, ski, swim, and play outdoor sports, and he plans to offer all of those things to the guests that come to his resort.

The development process passed its first hurdle when the Placer County Planning Commission approved the plan. The redevelopment plan is a five-year project, so time is of the essence. Wirth has an excellent track record when it comes to getting things done, and the redevelopment project should go according to the proposed plan.

In an interview with Galore Magazine, “Unicorn Queen” Doe Deere shares with us her inspiration, some of the difficulties and doubt she has faced while shifting cosmetic sales from department store counters to an online storefront and the joy she finds in keeping her “Unicorn” followers happy. Mrs. Deere hopes to give guys and gals alike a means to express themselves artistically through her cosmetic company, Lime Crime. Lime Crime was founded in 2008 by this spunky lady to fill a need for more vibrant cosmetics to match her funky and vibrant clothing line sold on eBay. The interview with Galore can be found here: https://galoremag.com/lime-crime-creator-doe-deere-colors-haters/.

Doe Deere is illuminating, both metaphorically and literally speaking. An inspiration to women around the globe, her entrepreneurial spirit shines bright along with the color palette displayed proudly on her face and in her hair. Mrs. Deere tries all of her products herself before making them available for sale to the public. If it doesn’t feel right, she works alongside the chemist developing the product until it is perfect for her customers. All Lime Crime cosmetics are now certified cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. Above all, Mrs. Deere aims for her products to be fun and freeing. She encourages experimentation and acceptance and vows to help other aspiring entrepreneurs on their own journeys as well. She believes that positive reinforcement and respect for others are key to business growth and maintaining a positive work atmosphere.

Fearless and inspirational, Mrs. Deere has turned doubts about online cosmetic sales into a new way to display lip colors in an online storefront. She introduced the “on-lip” lipstick swatch which allows shoppers to see a lip color applied to lips as opposed to smeared on a piece of paper. Now this method is more common in cosmetic ecommerce than the outdated picture of a smear or crumbles.

Lime Crime cosmetics have provided a medium for customers to reinvent themselves time and again. The wild color palette provides a means of self-expression for many. What is the one thing Mrs. Deere wishes to see in the near future? Shoes to match the vivid colors of her clothes and makeup! Calling all aspiring entrepreneurs!

George Soros made a big splash on Wall Street when he “Broke the Bank of England” by successfully predicting the crisis they were going to have in 1992. This prediction made him one of the richest people in the world. He profited $ 1 billion just on that prediction, though he was going to have many more.

Some might assume that money drives George Soros, but those people might be surprised to find out that Soros is actually driven by democratic freedom. This impressive financial guru has loved democracy since he was a young boy when he suffered under Nazi rule. A lot of Soros’ money has been donated to democratic causes, including presidential runs.

The American businessman was so crushed when George W. Bush become president that he went into political hibernation, but Donald Trump has awaken the sleeping giant. He is finally returning to the world of politics on bloomberg.com. Many of his advisors say that he has been paying attention to the rise of Donald Trump, which is a rise that scares him. Soros began to make moves so that he could donate to Clinton’s campaign to defeat Trump and prevent him from becoming the president of the United States of America.

This is a significant blow to the Republic Party, and those who support Donald Trump, because Soros has deep pockets. Soros is determined to shine a very hard spotlight on Trump and help further Clinton’s campaign by contributing $25 million.

The financial giant said that Trump is only feeding ISIS by giving them validation to attack the United States. It is his fear that Trump will continue to create enemies by not giving much consideration to what he says. Soros was scheduled to go to the Democratic Convention this year to see Hillary become the democratic nominee at http://www.wsj.com/articles/a-bearish-george-soros-is-trading-again-1465429163, but he was unable to. Still, he believes in Clinton and trusts that she will steer the country in the right direction.

George Soros has been a champion of immigration reform, religious tolerance, and criminal justice reform for decades, but they are coming under fire with Trump’s ascendancy to the nomination. There definitely is a lot at stake during this election, and it seems it was enough to get George Soros back into politics.
