Doe A Deere: One Girl Revolution

The creator behind Lime Crime, your favorite Instagram worthy makeup, is everything you would expect her to be. Doe Deere, 36, is undeniably pretty with a flawless icy complexion and candy-colored hair. Doe moved to the United States from Russia and studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. She had fun before deciding to go it on her own. She dropped out and began crafting and selling her own clothing designs on eBay. It wasn’t until she began to expiriment with makeup that Doe discovered where her true passion lay. When speaking of her days creating clothing she tells Inspirey, “I was in my experimental phase, exploring my creative side to discover what I really wanted in my career”(Doe Deere). But Doe didn’t just find her niche, she got far more than she was looking for.

Doe’s cosmetic design is all about fantasy and having fun. She has a love for fairytales and chose the unicorn to be the mascot for her brand. A couple glances at some Lime Crime lipsticks, or shadows and anyone can tell that this makeup is bold and unafraid to chase it’s inspiration. In fact, it’s Doe’s inspirations that make the brand so unique and cool. Her Alchemy collection was inspired by her daydreams of an alchemist and his boiling concoctions in shades of copper, noxious green and purple. Deere isn’t afraid to embrace glitter, princesses and mermaids. Her makeup encourages the wearer to create and be playful.

Inspired by fellow cosmetic pioneers Madame Helena Rubinstein and Elizabeth Arden, Doe Deere isn’t just a creative powerhouse, she’s a fierce businesswoman who won’t allow business to stand in the way of her ethics. Doe says one of the best things about her new-found success was being able to give back to the charities that are dearest to her. It’s fitting, because compassion comprises a major part of Lime Crime’s brand identity. Doe chose the unicorn as a symbol not only out of love for fairy tale, but also because he is a symbol of kindness. Every product that Lime Crime creates has been certified to be 100% vegan and cruelty-free. Fair labor practices are ensured as well as Lime Crime cosmetics are made in Los Angeles, CA. Deere has remained committed to keeping her cosmetics animal-friendly, and carefully selected a labratory that shared her vision.

There are many vegan cosmetic companies out there, and Doe was wise to focus on honing her niche early on. She realised that by providing something no one else could offer she would be meeting the demands of that niche market. That’s what led her to bring her fantasy flair to vegan cosmetics. While Lime Crime’s look is editorial and bold, she believes makeup should make you feel happy. This is an integral part of Lime Crime’s mission to revolutionize makeup. So far it has been successful as companies seek to duplicate Doe’s unique perspective.

Dr. Saad Saad Cares Deeply For His Patience

Taking on the role of pediatrician is one that requires a great many skills. Pediatricians are entrusted with caring for children. During the course of their day, a pediatrician may be called upon to assume many roles. The doctor will be asked to examine a newborn and see if that baby is meeting all milestones. A pediatrician will also be asked to examine a child and see if the child has a chronic illness. Many pediatricians also do surgery. Surgical procedures are one area where Dr. Saad Saad excels. During the course of his long career in the field of pediatrics, the doctor has performed many surgical procedures. As a result, he’s developed an impressive understanding of just how surgeries work. He’s also come to realize that surgical procedures can be improved.

Making Changes

 

As the doctor knows well, medical procedures have changed over time. In the last two decades alone, a great deal of progress has been made. He wants to see even further changes in the kind of surgery done. More specifically, he would like to see changes in the way that certain instruments are designed. This is why he’s proposing changes in two key instruments that are commonly used in surgical procedures today. His first proposed change is a change the catheter. He would like to see his easier to find version used. His second proposed change is a change in a particular type of instrument known as an endoscope. The endoscope is used for seeing inside of the body as the doctor works. He would like to see his own version of the endoscope used rather than the one on the market right now.

 

Caring Deeply

Securus Counters Prison Drones With New Detection Technology

For the past three years, many of our prisons have reported sightings of drones hovering back and forth to drop off illegal items to prisoners. These smuggled items could be anything from cell phones, drugs, pornography or weapons. This new way of bringing in contraband posing a much more serious threat for the correctional officers, prison guards, staff and other inmates within the incarceration environment. Drone usage is sadly the new reality for law enforcement officials to worry about and it’s becoming more prevalent in prisons across the United States and many other countries.

 

Securus Technologies has implemented and built many innovative technology solutions for our nation’s correctional and law enforcement agencies for over 25 years. Securus has serviced more than 3,500 of theses agencies and provided many updated communication solutions for over 1.2 million U.S. inmates. The company recently came out with a drone detection technology that was tested and proven to help combat drone smuggling. The company’s spokesperson shared that the detection technology will only get better over time. The drone detection and prevention program is already in full effect and a huge relief for correctional officers and staff alike.

 

The tech company has been praised by many in law enforcement for years. They have provided them with state-of-the-art technologies for monitoring, investigation, communication, emergency response, incident management and many other solutions. Securus Technologies’ reliability, response and professionalism has led them to win three prestigious Stevie Awards in 2018. Securus’ corporate escalations team won a Gold award for “Customer Service Complaints Team of the Year,” a customer service representative won a Silver for “Customer Service Professional of the Year” and their video visitation team were honored with a Bronze for “Front-Line Customer Service Team.” Over 2,500 nominations from organizations in various industries were thoroughly evaluated for the annual event.

 

Securus Technologies Opens With Wireless Containment And Is Quickly Spreading To New Areas In Prison Technology

Securus Technologies, a leading provider of civil and criminal justice technology solutions for public safety, investigation, corrections and monitoring, shared the nation’s shock and dismay as yet another Facebook Live video filmed by an inmate with a contraband cellphone circulated the Internet… The 3 ½ minute video filmed inside Evans Correctional Institution allegedly depicts 31-year-old Jose Ariel Rivera, an inmate serving a 10-year sentence for burglary, brandishing a knife.” (1)

 

What prompted this technology at Securus

“One of the present consultants of Securus Technologies once worked in a correctional facility, and he explained that he was one of the victims of those prisoners who have access to contraband cell phones. He stated that two armed male intruders went to his house, and assaulted him. The armed intruders revealed to him that they were instructed by a prisoner to harass and kill him because he keeps on confiscating cell phones inside the prison.” (2) “Robert Johnson, worked at Lee Correctional Institution in South Carolina. He’d been in corrections for 15 years and his primary job was to confiscate contraband.”(3) Obviously his last confiscation cost an inmate dearly. Using a contraband cellphone the inmate ordered a hit on the officer, his home was invaded and for $6,000.00 wired to a Greendot card by the inmate the officer was shot 5 times in the chest. It should have killed him but he survived and went on to make sure this could not happen to others. (3)

 

There are two sides to this issue. Danger vs Rehabilitation.

On one side you have career criminals. These folks commit crime and violence as an occupation. They know they will eventually do time and take steps beforehand to keep their business operational. They put money aside specifically to cover the eventual period of internment. They have associates that are partners or associates and career criminals that keep their presence (business) on the street, even when they are in prison. They know the prison phones are always monitored so they get contraband cell phones and use them to continue to run their business both on the street and often on the prison black market. Mr. Johnson is just one of a vast number of instances of crime and violence that were directed by prisoners while in prison. That is a problem that had to end. On the other hand there are a significant number of inmates that are not career criminals, desire rehabilitation and a new chance but face strong odds against success. They are surrounded every day by all types of inmates. The topic of conversation is crime, the social structure is tight, prison libraries are a joke and so are most funded opportunities to change while an inmate. Prison phones are often broken, and talk time is limited. I a single year of this type of seclusion from society most inmates will have been offered work in crime by another inmate. That could be the only choice they feel they have when discharged. The revolving door concept begins on the inside, not in the courts. These inmates should be allowed the chance to interact with others on the outside to begin their path to rehabilitation and a productive future.

 

This is where Securus threw me a curve. After reading things like:

  • “Securus’ WCS has already detected and prevented over 1.7 million illegal communication attempts from eight US correctional facilities” (1)
  • “Between July of 2016 and July of 2017, Securus’ WCS detected and prevented over 1.7 million illegal communication attempts in eight U.S. correctional facilities.” (1)

I visited their website, The first thing I saw was not about restriction, public safety, investigative technology, corrections technology, or even monitoring technology (all of which they offer). The first thing I saw was called “Friends and Family”(4) It appears Securus does as much to support communication with the outside for inmates as it does to prevent improper use of the same.

Securus Invests More Than $1 Billion in Products and Technologies That Improve Inmate Lives and Security”, Business Wire article titled: Securus Listens Carefully to Inmates and Friends/Family Members Before Making Investments in Technologies (5) In this article they cite a list of concerns and needs voiced by both inmates and correction officers equally. (5)

Then I noticed Securus took the initiative to produce an Electronic Medical Records system for prisons, complete with Televisits (the ability to have an online visit with your Primary Care Doctor at home). These are serious improvements in inmate care compared to the past. This shows a company dedicated to every facet of the field they chose.(4)

With “30 years of experience serving the corrections industry”. And now “serving approximately 3,400 correctional facilities and more than 1.2 million inmates in 48 states” combined with such a vast and equal array of services to both the Prison and each inmate (4), if I worked there I would go home each night feeling good about what I did for a living.
