Doe Deere’s Work Has Been Copied Without Attribution

 

Artists have long sought the ability to express themselves to others. Many artists know that they are able to show to others what it is that they are thinking in a highly powerful way. Such is the case of Doe Deere. Deere is someone who is capable of demonstrating how she can take her own ideas about color and create images of startling power and intensive beauty. Her many fans have been able to see what she does. One apparent fan is Richard Price. Price is a fellow artist. He came across an image that she placed on her own account. Unlike some of her other fans, however, Price decided that he could literally take her image and use it for his own purposes. Price brought her image into his own world, changed it a bit, then sold it his own fan without telling them that she had been the person to create it in the first place.

Her Own Voice

As an artist herself, Deere has been all about using imagery in her own way. She has been able to take a personal vision and turn her own voice into a company that is one of the most successful on the net today. Her voice has been translated into a company that is all about selling makeup products to those who like what she has to offer them. She is about being able to take an idea and turn this into products that look great. She has taken these ideas and make an entire makeup line from them. Her makeup ideas are entirely original and very much about being able to use all kinds of color at the same time.

Makeup For A New Society

In creating Lime Crime, Deere wanted to help investigate the kind of makeup that she could use in her own life. She knew that it was possible to take ways of seeing the world and then use such ways to make her own kind of fine makeup products. Her products are all about being in color and bringing that color to every area of life. She wants everyone to enjoy color as much as she done. Her fans know they can work with her as much as possible to have their own makeup that is all about their own use of color. This is one of many reasons why she is so popular today.

George Soros position on Brexit

George Soros is a billionaire currency trader who is pledging support for the United Kingdom to stay in the European Union. He says that British exit from the European Union could affect the living standards and trigger a plunge in the British pound.

George Soros is afraid that the pound might fall by at least 15% and possibly to 20%. He argued that this might be a repetition of what happened in September 1992, when Britain exited from European Exchange Rate Mechanism ended up with the currency losing 15% in its value. David Beckham, a soccer star together with his wife Victoria has supported Soros.

George Soros says Brexit from the European Union can likely bring a decrease in manufacturing exports. He explains that if the pound falls to this rate then 1 Pound will be worth about 1 Euro and no one in the Britain would want this. George Soros says in 1992 British government broke down Exchange Rate Mechanism and led to devaluation which proved helpful to the British economy. This devaluation was healthy because the government relieved of its obligation to defend an overvalued pound. He predicts, this time, such devaluation will not be favorable to the Britons.

George Soros states that he would expect this devaluation to be bigger and disruptive since the pound is likely to fall at a high rate if there is a vote to support Brexit. He calls upon people to first consider the consequences of leaving the European Union before they cast their votes. The reason being many of Britons think that there is no effect on their personal financial position.

How Billionaire George Soros Profited From Brexit’s ‘Black Friday’

George Soros | Open Society Foundations (OSF)

Soros says that citing estimates from multiple authorities including the Bank of England and the International Monetary Fund, the average income loss per household due to the fall in British currency will be around $4,400 to $7,335. He understands the fluctuations in the British currency from the experience of 1992.

He argues that the bank of England cannot cut rates from already low levels simply because the United Kingdom has a massive current account shortage and it’s hard to see another cash inflow. He says today there are speculative forces in the markets much bigger and powerful. These forces will be much eager to exploit any mistake made by the British government. He warns that a vote for Brexit will make some people richer but most of the voters poorer. Soros give the Britons a piece of advice to be wise in making their decision on Britain’s exit from the European Union.

George Soros was born in Budapest in 1930 and is the chairperson of Soros Fund Management LLC. He is a successful investor in the currency market.
