If you’ve ever heard of Wen hair care products, you probably know that the company is known for providing items that are free of parabens, sodium lauryl sulfate and other chemicals that can cause dryness and breakage. Wen creator Chaz Dean asserts that all the products in the hair care line contain natural extracts and plant oils that nourish and restore the hair. This may sound especially appealing to you if you’re looking for products that are both effective and all natural.

If you think you may want to try Wen hair, check out this Bustle review from Emily McClure to help you decide if Wen is right for you.

One of the first day of the week-long experiment, McClure noticed that the conditioner had a nice consistency and scent. She shared that it took lots of product for maximum effectiveness, but she did see a feel a difference in her hair after only one use.

Halfway through the experiment, McClure styled her hair with a curling iron. However, since the conditioner made her hair heavier, the curls didn’t stay for very long, but her her hair still looked moisturized and healthy.

Overall, Emily says that the Sephora endorsed Fig conditioner from Wen is a great buy for women who have thin hair, or women who wash and apply heat to their hair on a regular basis. More product information available on the Wen Wikipedia page.

Brazil is a former Portuguese colony. Consequently, the South-American country largely borrows from Portugal regarding language, culture, and even constitution. Long before law schools were established in Brazil, Brazilian lawyers used to train from Portuguese universities such as the University of Coimbra in Central Portugal.

Brazilian Law Schools

The first faculty of law in post-colony Brazil, Academies of Law, was established in 1827 in Sao Paulo and was quickly followed by Social Sciences in Olinda. The law professors of those days had gone through the Portuguese system, and therefore Brazil had to adopt the same system. Today, the legal industry in Brazil has grown tremendously with thousands of law schools distributed all over the country and hundreds of thousands of law students. By 2010, there were more than 500,000 practicing lawyers in Brazil. Sao Paulo, where Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho practices, has the highest number of lawyers.

The Constitution

The Brazilian Federal Constitution, promulgated in 1988 and amended in 2004, is the supreme law of the land. The constitution defines the country as a federal republic made up of 26 federate states. Each federate state is given the freedom to formulate a constitution of its own, but this constitution must follow the provisions of the Federal Constitution. The judiciary arm of government is mandated with the responsibility of interpreting the Constitution, with the highest of them all being the Supreme Court.

The best way to change in the world is to get people behind you. After all, political change only happens when millions of people come together to demand change from their leaders. Change does not happen from the top down. Rarely in history has major change come about because a person in power dared to take a country in a new direction.This is one of the famous rally cries of Senator Bernie Sanders, and he’s right. That’s why Thor Halvorssen, an ardent Bernie Sanders supporter, works so hard to educate the public about human right violations. His hope is to focus the world’s attention on atrocities in an effort to enact change. He hopes that change will benefit the rights and safety of all human beings across the planet.

It’s common sense that the internet is a great educational tool. When used well, information can spread across the planet in the blink of an eye. But for that information to spread quickly, people need to share that information. So, Thor Halvorssen used viral content to promote his human rights agendas around the world.The movie The Interview made news around the world. Two American comedians made a movie about the assassination of the dictator or North Korea. It created quite a stir inside the People’s Democratic Republic. To keep a hold on his power, Kim Jong-Un needs to appear infallible to his people. A popular movie about his assassination would weaken his standing. So he ordered the hacking of Sony, the production house responsible for The Interview movie.

The hacking was successful. It came with threats of violence at any theater playing the movie. The makers of the movie canceled the public debut and were forced to release the movie online. It was a victory of North Korea and it created quite a stir.In conjunction the release of the movie, Thor’s Human Rights Foundation to the southern border of North Korea. He released balloons filled with money, informational pamphlets and DVD’s into North Korea. His actions made the news, educating the world, and the balloons educated a few lucky North Koreans.


Succeeding in an industry where a single retailer controls 20% of the market cannot be easy. However, Fabletics is proving all the naysayers wrong. It has managed to grow into a brand worth more than $250 million in spite of tough competition. It has done this by being able to exploit the ‘activewear’ movement and provide customers with what they want. Besides that, it uses a subscription model that encourages more sales to its customers.

The old way of doing business involved high-end brands that were defined by expensive attires and quality. However, that method of doing business just does not work in the modern era. In a time of economic downturn, pragmatism is quite important. For a company to be considered valuable, it must concentrate on things such as customer experience, gamification, exclusive design, last-mile service, and brand recognition to win over customers. Fabletics has managed to open physical stores in places such as Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, and California.

According to Gregg Throgmartin, the General Manager of Fabletics thinks that the company’s ability to re-imagine what a modern high-end clothing brand is what has kept them ahead. Besides that, he says the membership model designed by Fabletics has allowed them to offer on-trend fashion pieces at half the price of their competitors.


Reverse Show Rooming is working for Fabletics


Unlike its competitors who are being destroyed by showrooming, it is working for Fabletics. In other places, people browse for items but end up purchasing cheap knockoffs elsewhere. Fabletics has managed to re-engineer the model so that it leads to high conversion. When a customer walks into a Fabletics store, 30-50% of the time, they are already a member. Additionally, the company has a strategy to ensure that another 25% who walk out leave as members. When a customer is shopping for an item at the store, it is added to their online cart. Fabletics has developed a model where the online store and the physical store have been merged.


Online Data Combined with Culture is Spurring Growth


Fabletics understands the value of showing the right content to the right people. Thus, Fabletics collects data on its customers and stocks its stores with the corresponding clothes. However, that is not the only way Fabletics grows its brand. It also uses people such as Kate Hudson, to give the brand a human face.
