Minoxidil: The Miracle Answer to Beardlessness?

first_img The Ultimate Guide on How to Shape a Beard Editors’ Recommendations 10 Best Beard Balms: The Secret to a Tamed and Tangle-Free Beard Patchy, beardlesslness bringing you down? Minoxidil, or a Rogaine-like solution for your beard, is a miracle hair growth solution that’ll help you grow the luxurious set of whiskers you’ve always wanted.It’s true that a persistent shave routine and avid grooming are both great methods to gaining a fuller, thicker beard. But sometimes, those strong, bare-faced genetics are tough to tackle.There are some products, such as Vitabeard and Beard Grow XL, which promote facial hair growth; however, when it comes to obtaining that brawny, brazen beard you’ve always wanted, FDA approved Minoxidil is going to be your best bet. Hell, it even has the science and the policy to back it up.Minoxidil also happens to be the active ingredient in Rogaine, the hair regrowth treatment, so you know this isn’t some ambiguous new medication. Nonetheless, the treatment can induce some side effects: which include a fast or irregular heartbeat, irritation of the skin, weight gain, and a few others listed on popular hypochondriac-creator, WebMD.(Note: It’s also recommended that you do not use Minoxidil as a treatment for hair loss on the scalp or sudden, patchy hair loss. Check in with your doctor to make sure you have the correct application methods.)Kirkland Signature is currently offering a six-month supply on Amazon for just $29. Or, if you want to hop face first into the beard life, they also offer a years supply of Minoxidil for $52.Alright, so what is Minoxidil all about? Simply, as we state above, it promotes hair growth that’ll transform you from bare-faced to beardsman. Seems easy, right?Yes, but also no. Minoxidil was not designed to magically create hair on your face as much as it stimulates the hair follicles you already have in your beard to promote more and better growth. This stimulation doesn’t happen quickly either, so don’t go entering beard styling competitions after a a couple months. Most men tend to experience substantial growth and major beard goals after six to nine months of treatment.And don’t forget, as most beard growers have experienced, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and grooming your beard is essential to obtaining a full, thick beard. Pick yourself up a quality beard oil to curb beardruff, a beard-balm to prevent skin irritation and redness, stay hydrated, and get your 8-hours of beauty sleep to ensure good results.

Mining company Xstrata recommends merger with commodities giant Glencore

Mining company Xstrata recommends merger with commodities giant Glencore AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by News Staff Posted Oct 1, 2012 5:48 am MDT LONDON – The board of Anglo-Swiss mining company Xstrata PLC said Monday it is recommending shareholders accept merger terms with Swiss commodities trader Glencore PLC — a deal that would create an industry behemoth with revenues of around $175 billion.Xstrata said in a statement it was supporting the offer of 3.05 Glencore shares for each Xstrata share. The deal values Xstrata at 31.9 billion pounds ($51.5 billion) on the shares’ closing price Friday. Glencore has a market capitalization of 23.5 billion pounds, according to data provider FactSet.Xstrata is the world’s biggest exporter of thermal coal and also produces copper, nickel and zinc. If the deal is approved by 75 per cent of Xstrata shareholders, the merged company would be one of the world’s largest natural resources firms.Glencore, one of the world’s biggest traders in raw materials such as coal, cotton and corn, went public with a $10 billion IPO last year.Its attempt to get hold of Xstrata has developed into a long-running saga. Previous offers were resisted by Xstrata shareholders, including Qatari sovereign wealth fund Qatar Holding, which holds 12 per cent of Xstrata.Glencore improved its original offer of 2.8 shares last month, leaving issues of management structure and executive remuneration the main stumbling blocks to a merger.The deal announced Monday would see Xstrata chief executive Mick Davis remain as CEO of the new company for six months, then leave the company to be succeeded by Glencore CEO Ivan Glasenberg.Xstrata said it had agreed to give shareholders a separate vote on bonuses for senior executives, a key sticking point to a deal. While Xstrata recommended that shareholders also vote in favour of the bonus scheme, the merger’s approval will not depend on it.Mike van Dulken, head of research at Accendo Markets, said the new deal was designed to remove the issue of retention payments as a potential road-block and “hurry up termination of the seven-month saga after major shareholders recently warmed to an improved share offer.”“The deal is not done — not just yet,” he said — though Monday’s 3 per cent rise in Xstrata’s share price suggests investors and traders “see an endgame being closer.”Davis said the strategic rationale behind a merger was “highly compelling.”“A merger will fuse the respective strengths of the two companies into a unique, vertically integrated natural resources group,” he said.Glencore chairman Simon Murray said the merged company “will have the scale to play a key role in meeting the growing global demand for commodities whilst helping resource holding countries create value from their natural endowments.”Xstrata, based in Zug, Switzerland, was formed in 2002 when it bought Glencore’s coal assets. The company mines copper in the Americas, zinc in Spain and ferrochrome and vanadium in Australia and South Africa.Glencore extracts, ships and refines raw materials from coal, to copper to corn. It is based in the Swiss town of Baar but has its main stock listing in London.Glencore was founded in 1974 by Marc Rich, the fugitive trader who was controversially pardoned in 2001 by then United States President Bill Clinton just hours before he left office. Rich sold the company to its employees in 1994, and the firm has been at pains to distance itself from its founder and any whiff of improper activity, though environmental groups have since targeted the company for its mining interests.Xstrata shares were up 2.9 per cent at 985.2 pence on the London Stock Exchange. Glencore shares were up 0.5 per cent at 344.95 pence. read more

Labour expert honoured with Chancellors Chair for Research Excellence

She coined a key concept: “humane jobs.” She led a first-of-its-kind study on the working conditions of animal cruelty investigators. Her gender wage gap and retail research is widely consulted. She has been invited to speak to academics, advocates and practitioners around the world.These are among the accomplishments of Brock University labour expert Kendra Coulter. Recognized globally as a leader in the study of human-animal labour, Coulter was named the 2017 recipient of Brock University’s Chancellor’s Chair for Research Excellence.“I am happy to receive this prestigious research chair which will enable me to conduct a compelling multi-year project on horses and care work,” says the associate professor in the Department of Labour Studies.The Chancellor’s Chair for Research Excellence recognizes Coulter’s “outstanding contributions in her field and encourages her position as a path-breaking scholar in research about animals,” says Vice-President, Research Joffre Mercier.Central to Coulter’s research is the concept of humane jobs, which she has developed to highlight work that benefits — or may benefit — both people and animals.“Through this research, we can gain insights about how work is changing, but also about how it could be changed to improve both human and equine lives,” she says.Her books include Animals, Work, and the Promise of Interspecies Solidarity and Revolutionizing Retail: Workers, Political Action, and Social Change.Revolutionizing Retail won the Canadian Association for Work and Labour Studies (CAWLS) Book Prize in 2015.With the royalties from Animals, Work and the Promise of Interspecies Solidarity, Coulter created an academic award called the Promise Prize for Top Achievement in the Study of Animals at Work for students in her unique Animals at Work course.She also supports talented graduate students through humane jobs fellowships.Coulter is being inducted into the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars this year.With her Chancellor’s Chair for Research Excellence award, Coulter says she will deepen her expertise in human-equine labour by conducting a multi-faceted and multi-year project on horses and care work.“Despite the significance of horses to the past, present and future of this land we now call Canada, there is a shortage of research on equine cultures and human-horse work in particular,” she says. “There are also some popular misconceptions, including that horses are only for the upper class.”There are about a million horses in Canada and more than 150,000 direct and spin-off jobs related to equine activities.Coulter explains that her research will consider “a constellation of overlapping yet distinct areas of care work.”“Veterinary work is changing in noteworthy ways. The work done to care for horses every day in stables is crucial, yet is often undervalued, as well as understudied,” she says. “Equine-assisted therapy is a newer but growing field, and horses are often seen as co-workers. It has interesting challenges and possibilities.”She will be examining veterinary labour, daily work in stables and the expanding area of equine-assisted therapy.The Chancellor’s Chair for Research Excellence, open solely to Brock tenured and tenure-track faculty, recognizes the excellent scholarship of Brock University’s faculty members.Chair holders are active scholars who have demonstrated excellence and who will continue to make significant contributions to the advancement of their field.Recipients of the Chancellor’s Chair for Research Excellence can undertake a specific three-year program of research leading to a significant development in their scholarship, including a scholarly monograph, or a state-of-the-art review that might lead to a seminal series of scholarly lectures.Each awardee will give at least one public lecture on their research to the Brock University community. read more

Protect Your Familys Legacy Register Now for ASA Succession Planning Workshops in

first_imgA note from eLegacy’s Kevin Spafford.Having just completed the third of six succession planning workshops for ASA, I’m keenly aware of both your need to and your hesitation for initiating the succession planning process. Yet waiting doesn’t make it any easier. In fact, time is your ally as well as your nemesis. As the latter, time gives us false hope and causes us to think there’s always tomorrow…As the former, the more time we have to plan and implement, the more opportunities we have to ensure the outcome generates the exact results you want. Succession is affected by everything, family dynamics, economic cycles, land values, tax law, and environmental regulations, just to name a few. There’s no way to narrow it down to a single issue or prescribed standards of solution.Without a plan the odds are severely stacked against the long-term, multigenerational, success of the family and the operation. In considering the process and involving the family, consider the following questions:• Do our goals include continuing the family farm and passing the reins to a well-prepared next generation?• Do our goals focus on preserving our farming legacy and using the family’s land to provide financial security for future generations?• Do our goals include growing family wealth and providing future generations with career opportunities in farming?Use The Ultimate Harvest assessment provided below to focus your thoughts and encourage the family to share their desires.last_img read more

Honda finally says how much power the electric E hatchback will make

Honda The Honda E electric hatchback looks awfully promising, even though it’s not coming to the US. The automaker hasn’t exactly been forthright with specifications thus far, but on the eve of its Goodwood Festival of Speed debut, we finally have an idea of how much power the darn thing makes.Honda on Tuesday unveiled a few more tidbits of information about the E. Its single electric motor on the rear axle produces about 148 horsepower and torque “in excess of” 221 pound-feet of torque. Given its diminutive dimensions and 50/50 weight distribution, that means it should rock just about any autocross course it comes across. The automaker also said that, because the rear wheels deliver the power, it was able to add extra steering articulation on the front axle. Its turning diameter is pretty small as a result, requiring a little over 28 feet to complete a full circle. Its four-corner McPherson strut layout means it should be both comfortable yet solid.Honda also said that the E will sport a one-pedal driving mode. Single Pedal Control, as Honda calls it, will allow the vehicle to accelerate and decelerate with just a single pedal, using regenerative braking to slow the vehicle, presumably to a stop. It’s unclear if this will be a default mode, or if it will require a button press to activate. Other EVs have similar systems that can be bypassed if a driver prefers it.Preorders for the Honda E are already open in Europe. It will sport standard camera side mirrors, further distancing it from the US market, where such tech remains illegal. We’ll get a good look at it this week at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where we hope it will take a run up the famed hill climb course.

Why is Pawan Kalyan not bringing in star campaigners for Jana Sena

first_imgJana Sena Party chief Pawan KalyanTwitterPower star Pawan Kalyan has not brought even a single star to campaign for Jana Sena Party (JSP) in the upcoming Assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh. It has become topic of debate in the state.The celebs from the film industry are one of the biggest attractions of election campaigns and their presence is said to be a crowd puller for political parties. Hence, most of the political parties vie their hands to bring the most popular star on board to campaign for them during elections in India.Andhra Padesh is now witnessing a triangular battle among Telugu Desam Party (TDP), YSR Congress Party (YCP) and Jana Sena Party in the impending Assembly elections. All the three parties have adapted innovative methods of campaigning and one among them is age-old traditon of bring star campaigners.The YCP has an upper hand with Jagan Mohan Reddy bringing over 15 star campaigners on board. The rulling TDP also has some celebs. But the JSP has utterly fallen back in this direction and many in the film industry are wondering over why Pawan Kalyan being No 1 Tollywood actor, is not willing to opt for some.The JSP has been a one man show and Pawan Kalyan is bearing the whole brunt of electioneering on his shoulders. He has good capacity of crowd pulling, but he can not cover the campaigning for all the candidates of his party in a short time. Bringing in some stars would boost the morale of his party workers.Pawan Kalyan hails from the mega family, which boasts of 10 popular celebs, but all of them have distanced themselves from the party activities. His brother Nagababu joined the JSP and is contesting the Lok Sabha election from Narasapuram. He revealed that along with the power star, he had gone to invite his brother Chiranjeevi, but he declined to compaign for the party. Pawan Kalyan and ChiranjeeviTwitterRam Charan, Allu Arjun and Varun Tej, the popular stars from the mega family, are all eager to campaign for their uncle, but Pawan Kalyan has not invited them. Several young actors including Nithin, who have made their career in the industry with his support, are also excited to return his favour, by campaigning for the JSP. But the actor has stayed away from taking their support.Pawan Kalyan is not able to address rallies in all the constituencies. He is said to be limiting his campaigning to some candidates, who have fare chances of winning the elections. Hence, there is a growing demand for star campaigners in the party and the workers are said to be requesting bring in some celebs, whose presence might help them to attract more voters. Pawan Kalyan inducts his brother Nagababu in to Jana Sena partyTwitterBut sources from the JSP claim that Pawan Kalyan, who is a shy guy, does not have a habit of requesting or inviting anybody. Though many celebs are interested to campaign for him, they can not start campaigning without an invitation. Some party leaders are apparently urging Nagababu to take initiative and bring in some star campaigners. With a week away from the polls, it should be seen whether he would make an effort.last_img read more

John McAfee Says Blockchain Will Upend Business as We Know It in

first_img Politics, race and religion could all be fair game for dinnertime conversation with John McAfee, but if you’re a blockchain skeptic, you might want to keep your mouth shut.McAfee, the computer programmer and businessman behind the once-multibillion-dollar software company that bore his name, fiercely believes that cryptocurrency — as well as blockchain, the technology that allows most cryptocurrencies to work — will completely upend life as we know it.Blockchain is a platform that can securely verify transactions and identities through a network of multiple decentralized records. It’s a new way to interact with others because the platform can both securely verify who you’re doing business with and track the origin and path of whatever it is you’re exchanging. This is true whether you’re exchanging cryptocurrency (such as bitcoin), trading commodities such as soybeans or authenticating designer handbags.Over the past decade, a string of bizarre events shrouded McAfee in controversy — from murder allegations in Belize to a short-lived U.S. presidential run. He’s now propelled himself full-force into the blockchain world, and he charges $105,000 per tweet to promote different cryptocurrencies. McAfee has advised or worked with about 17 cryptocurrency companies, but his most recent project is Docademic, a company aiming to provide free virtual access to doctors worldwide using artificial intelligence and blockchain.Entrepreneur spoke with McAfee about cryptocurrency, blockchain and what he believes entrepreneurs should know about the future of business.This interview has been edited for length and clarity.Why do you believe in the future of cryptocurrency?Generally, the crypto field is on the leading edge of everything. It’s not just medical science, but you name it: social media, self-help, everything. I was even contacted by a collection of professional sex workers who founded a company called PinkDate who wanted to create their own currency just for prostitutes and sex workers. I thought, “Well, that’s a great idea,” so I’m working with them. Every field of life is being enhanced, bettered, made cleaner, safer, more convenient and cheaper with cryptocurrency and the blockchain.In five years, there will be nothing that’s not on the blockchain. This is equivalent to when the internet first came out and companies started getting their own websites. People said, “This is a fad. It’ll never last.” Show me a single company today that doesn’t have a website. It’s going to be the same thing with cryptocurrency, but cryptocurrency, rather than enhancing existing businesses, will totally transform them.In this potential new space — no matter what industry you’re in — what are some ways that you can stay ahead of the curve instead of just following in other people’s footsteps?First and foremost is educating yourself. Unfortunately, the blockchain and cryptocurrency is so new that we don’t have a “crypto for dummies” or a “blockchain for dummies” that actually works. But we do have the internet, which is the fundamental source of all information on this planet — where you can learn anything you want if you’re willing to take the time. Once you’ve obtained the essentials, there are thousands of groups — blogging groups, investing groups, you name it — that you can join, and the people are more than happy to advise you, answer your questions and point you in the direction to enhance your knowledge. That’s number one.My advice is this: Don’t start a business saying “I’m going to build a car-washing thing.” Forget it. You’re going to fail, because in this day and age, people are going to come up with that concept through the blockchain without even knowing that’s what they were doing, and they will be a 100 years ahead of you. Their car-washing will be insanely more efficient. You don’t just sit down and say, “I’ve got a great idea for a new carburetor, let’s build it.” Forget it. You will fail because the competition will have the new carburetor automatically pop out of this new process. And they may think, “I hope we wind up building sailboats because I love sailboats,” but instead, a carburetor pops out.You get to build whatever comes out of the process. And what comes out of the process is going to be dependent upon the people you choose to join in this process. So you get a bunch of really smart people together, you start and you don’t know where you’re going to be building a new car or a rocket to the moon or a new set of loafers, but you have to be a willing to build whatever the synergy comes out with. If you cannot accept that — that you’re no longer in charge of your business life — then you won’t succeed in the cryptocurrency/blockchain world.In your eyes, the “business idea” is dead?Even in the old world, an idea is worth exactly what you put into it, which is nothing. Do you know how many ideas people have come to me with? “Here’s my idea … Give me a piece of the action.” It’s like, “Have you lost your mind?” Every man, woman and child has a great idea 100 times a day. The ideas don’t mean anything. It’s the implementation, the organization and the work towards that idea, and even then, what you come out with sometimes is nothing close to what you originally intended. That should give us a clue. But with the blockchain, you don’t have an idea. You simply get the people together and see what comes out.Do not start a business thinking you’re going to create something, design it, give it to people and then have them implement it. That’s what happens now, but if you do that you will be the last in the competitive line. The people who understand there is no boss, central authority or central design will be making hundreds of millions of dollars, and everybody else will fail. If you still have the concept, “I’m going to start a business and tell people what to do,” don’t start it. Go out and shine shoes. You will fail because there are competitors like me who understand it fully. Nobody works for me. Nobody works for anybody. “Oh, I have an idea, let’s implement it” — scratch that shit. That’s not going to work anymore.Related: How Blockchain Will Help Small Businesses Challenge Even the Largest RivalsCan you elaborate on what you think blockchain will do to existing power structures?You have to unlearn everything about “I’m the boss, I make the rules.” In the blockchain world, nobody makes the rules. The rules evolve from the process of distributed interaction. This is a hard pill to swallow because the mind can’t conceive how that would work.The blockchain is taking the existing power structure of a top-down organization and distributing it throughout the world. I’ve never met most of my full-time employees — I’ve forgotten where some of them even live. You must be prepared to forget everything that you have ever learned about business, money transfer and marketing — and the process of building products, selling a product or supporting a product. Because this is all changing, and there is no central control.Now, if you don’t understand that and fully grasp that to your heart, don’t even try to get into crypto. You will end up like everybody else with a hat on the street corner begging for money, because seriously, it is changing the world that much. There are no more bosses. What a nonsensical concept. How can one man make decisions in a universe where the questions are infinite?This weekend, we had people from Chicago, Ecuador, not enough room for people to sleep, and yet we did more business in a 48-hour period than any company in the world in a one-year period because we came in knowing there’s no boss or decision-making process. When we started, nobody had a clue what we were going to do, what the outcome would be or what the process would be from moving to point A to point B would be. That’s because we didn’t have a point A and a point B. We are using the mindset of the blockchain to distribute the decision-making process, the planning process and the strategy process among all of us. Our day-to-day operations give the “boss” title to the person most appropriate for the process.How do you think the world of blockchain will affect social media and the tech giants that just released their earnings reports?They’re going to have to realize that Mark Zuckerberg is no longer a CEO. He is just like a janitor. He makes no more decisions. He gives no more orders. End of story. That’s number one. Do you think he’s going to do that? No. So Facebook will disappear. The same thing with Twitter. There are very few companies with the self-awareness and the courage to abandon what we have lived with for 5,000 years of human development — to abandon that and realize that there are no bosses.The other thing about cryptocurrency and the blockchain? It’s accelerated. People go, “Oh my God, cryptocurrency! You’re getting 5,000 percent gains per year!” Well, of course we are. We’re in an accelerated universe. In five years, there will be no Facebook — not in its current form. CEOs like Mark Zuckerberg who have not abandoned their positions and restructured their companies so that there is no structure — they will be out of business because someone is going to come along with a blockchain version of Facebook and Twitter.Five years from now, you believe cryptocurrency will have taken over. What will everyday life look like as far as purchasing power?There will not be a single bank. The U.S. government and every government will have had to figure out how to maintain their nation without getting income taxes because you won’t be able to collect them because you will not know where the money is, who has it and where it’s been transferred to.You don’t have to go down to the bank to do a wire transfer. You open up your wallet, and 30 seconds later, you’ve done it. You don’t have to do anything related to a bank because your wallet does it all now. It astonishes me that people put up with these banks — to go into the bank, to drive two miles, stand in line for five minutes and drive back home to send money to another country. Do you realize how insane that is in a world where I do it in 30 seconds while I’m still in bed? Number one: Life is going to be easier. Will there be cards and things? Of course not. Why deal with that stuff when all I do is take my wallet and scan it? Everybody will pick a cryptocurrency that they like; however, the transfer between them is going to be instantaneous and virtually free.What will retirement look like?There will not be such a term. The difference between business and personal life has already disappeared for me. If you live the blockchain, personal life and business life are the same thing. Retirement is a concept that means nothing — it merely means that, as things are happening, I don’t feel synergistic because you guys are trying to get money, so I’m going to go next door where they’ve got a blockchain about golfing. Maybe tomorrow it’s going to change into shooting and the next day sailing. You might want to call that retirement; I don’t know. But nothing changes. It’s just the collection of people that you choose to hang with.For someone with a general understanding of the concept of blockchain who hasn’t been able to dive deeper, how could they dig into this?Someone gives a demonstration for a new design for a rocket. We all think about it in the middle of the presentation. All of a sudden, it’s “Forget the rocketship. I have a new design for a rocket engine.” Then someone says, “It’s not a rocket engine. It’s the fuel system.” So now we’re building a fuel system, and someone else says, “You know what? It’s actually not the fuel system. It’s the special fuel that we have to use.” Someone says, “Wait a minute — it’s not the special fuel. It’s how you refine it.” We went from a rocket ship to an oil-refining business. You get your friends together and just see what happens. And instead of just doing that, think: Who are some really smart people in this world that I could sucker into working with me? You contact them, and you invite them over. Then, they have smart friends. Then maybe the smart friend you thought was smart isn’t smart and doesn’t contribute because they’re still in the old mindset: “I have an idea. Let’s do it.” That’s not going to work, so you throw him or her out and get somebody else.You don’t start a business going, “I’ve got an idea.” That’s nonsense. You start a business saying, “I know some clever people.” We have been in business here for less than a year. We have changed our focus so many times I cannot count. From supporting coins to creating a better coin market cap system to creating a better wallet — I never had this idea when I started. These are things I would never have thought up, and yet that’s what we’re doing.Related: 15 Crazy and Surprising Ways People Are Using BlockchainIf you’re continuously changing the focus of your company, how do you ever have a new product or something new to offer the world?So we’re building a rocket, and in the process it changes to the rocket engine, which changes to a fuel system, which changes to an oil refinery, whatever. It happens in real time. You don’t think of it in advance. We are enormously successful. It’s embarrassing how much money Team McAfee makes. It’s embarrassing.There is no final product. You don’t really have a direction. You have nobody who’s in charge. We’re talking. Everything that happens at every moment in your life is the blockchain. And if you don’t snatch everything that happens or follow it, then you’ve lost out and you should not be in business in this new world. It’s not ideas — it’s the willingness to drop your ideas and simply see what is happening here and now and to be part of it. And the “here and now” is constantly changing. Once we say, “We are an oil-refining business,” we’re back to the old mindset, and we will die. We’re following the present moment as the present moment evolves. There’s no past. The past is just a memory in your mind. There’s no future. That’s merely an anticipation of what you think might happen. In the business world now, there’s no planning. There’s just now as applied to the blockchain, which is that element that takes the “here and now” and creates an immutable ledger of that. 14 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals May 8, 2018center_img Register Now » Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.last_img read more
