It’s time to show the world the beauty on the inside, and Lime Crime can help.

Lime Crime was founded in 2008 by make-up artist Xenia, better known as Doe Deere. Doe’s quest to find make-up that reflected her personality fell short, so she opted to create makeup in a spectrum of colors that can’t be found at the local drugstore makeup display. Lime Crime offers the shopper luminous lip colors with names like Great Pink Planet, Cosmopop, and Airborne Unicorn. The names themselves conjure up visions of a world where colors are only limited by the constraints of the imagination. Anyone can tap into the spirit of the universe through the Zodiac Glitter eye shadow, available in all twelve of the Zodiac signs. Not to leave the nails out, there are a variety of Lime Crime nail polish colors available in rich colors to match anyone’s mood.

Lime Crime has earned the Leaping Bunny Cruelty Free Certification and only works with manufacturers, who are willing to provide sworn statements as to the origin of their ingredients.

Lime Crime’s website seems more like a girl’s fun night out rather than a cosmetic store. There are real people, rather than generic models, wearing Lime Crime products. The Blog will educate you on how to create new custom colors using multiple Lime Crime products, and bring back some pop culture memories in the process. The LookBook has a playlist to put the shopper in the mood to be daring and allow their wants to overcome their needs. Take a chance, be brave, and choose a new color, and be amazed at the changes a little color can make in the world.

Slyce Has Improved Image Recognition Shopping

Technology has really changed the way we currently do things. Just a few years ago, things were being done differently. Currently, it is possible to use smartphones do so many things. Someone can take pictures and use them to match products in the internet. Image recognition shopping has been made possible, especially when the idea was brought in to the market by amazon. Slyce has come up too, hoping to bring more changes through the use of better improved image recognition modern technology, and right now, they have the funding to do perfectly.

When using Slyce, clients who are shopping will use their smart phones take photos of a product they are interested in a certain retailers stock. Unlike the previous technology created and developed by Amazon, Slyce will allow its users to take photos of items in real life and in any form. The kind of packaging doesn’t matter, so it is possible to take even a photo of a dress you see a friend wearing, and see if a certain retailer has the dress. Retailers are able to integrate this new technology in their native mobile phone apps, offering them the chance to match thee competitor items with something they can offer.

In the year 2011, Amazon introduced the Amazon Flow, an important app for iPhones that has really utilized augmented reality to give individuals to scan a photo of a particular product in the real form. It can actually be a book, a dvd, and when you do that, you are able to get information about the item using the app. This actually enables a shopper to compare the shops. Many people have not been able to realize this. And for the few who might have been aware about it, they probably haven’t noticed that there are more utilities that have been currently brought by the amazon flow. At the moment, Flow’s features are believed to have been integrated into the Amazon’s major mobile device platform, and this is actually a good and exciting thing taking into consideration its limitations; this is because the technology depends a lot on optical character recognition and the logo identification; the image recognition shopping through Amazon is actually limited to the products that are in their original packs.

When we consider Amazon’s disadvantages, it’s very easy to realize just how Slyce’s new modern technology can offer incredible changes in developed picture recognition experience. Fortunately, it actually seems that many people have started to realize the change.

Just the other day, the company, which is actually based in Toronto, managed to raise approximately $10.75 in their first round of the funding. This would be added to the initial capital funding of around $3.75 million which had been raised previously in May.

Antony Ressler Purchases Atlanta Hawks

The landscape of the NBA can change in the blink of an eye. Whether a team is suddenly relocated (Seattle Supersonics) or given a new name (Hornets) there is always something to keep an eye out for. Of course, there is also the much more common form of change in the NBA: ownership. While owners are looked at as the big suits in the world of professional sports, they still do manage to jump around quite a bit. Last year we saw two NBA franchises get sold in the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Clippers. These sales skyrocketed the values of all other NBA franchises along with the coinciding new television deal. The owner of the Atlanta Hawks, Bruce Levenson, saw an opening to make a nice chunk of change on his investment and he quickly cut a deal with Antony Ressler according to brucelevenson.com.

Before the Bucks and Clippers were sold the NBA had valued the Hawks at around $400 million. After the sales the value of the Hawks skyrocketed to close to $900 million. Obviously Levenson would want to cash in on this value jump and there were buyers ready to grab onto the reigns. Antony Ressler is a billionaire who has been trying to get into the NBA for a little while now. He was initially priced out of the competition for the Los Angeles Clippers but the man didn’t turn tail from his dream of owning a team. When the Hawks went up for sale Ressler was there with a group of buyers including Grant Hill at his side. While many believe that Ressler overpaid for the Hawks, the man still is looking like a genius as he scores a team that seems poised for long term success in the NBA.

Antony Ressler made his fortune with an investment firm by the name of Ares while also working as a real estate developer. His commitment to converting his billions into an NBA team was finally realized and we can’t help but think that his passion and enthusiasm will pay off. So far what we have seen appears to suggest that the team will continue to be aggressive in their pursuit of another division banner. With Ressler willing to pay big money to get the team are we surprised that he was ready to spend money this off season?

The Hawks made it a priority to pick up the contract of their star power forward Paul Millsap. Millsap was coming off of an All Star year where he set career highs in a ton of offensive categories. Ressler handed him a 3 year contract with a built in player extension that included max money, effectively prying him from the pursuing Orlando Magic. A team looking to keep its payroll under wraps would have opted to pass on Millsap’s contract, effectively shrugging their shoulders as he moved on to a different roster. Yet that isn’t what Atlanta did and because of it we think the Hawks are looking to make another deep run.

Slyce Mobile-Commerce Application

Slyce is a smartphone mobile application that lets users take pictures of what they intend to buy and in an instant they are presented by similar items on the internet about the product in the mobile application. Amazon Flow was a previous similar mobile application that used to perform similar functions. In Amazon flow, the mobile used to scan for barcodes to match with those on the internet and bring results for similar products. It was constantly ignored by many people because it just did the simple thing that anyone can do by simply searching online for whatever you want. Amazon flow also had a limitation in that you could get proper results if the optical bar codes on the product or items were spoilt. It brings out the superiority of Slyce which can be able to scan just a picture of the product in place and brings out searches for related items.

Slyce features, however, heavily relies on optical character product recognition and also logo identification on the products, makes it superior to Amazon which is limited to the packaging of the product in their original packet. When you compare the two applications, you will be able to see how slice technology is wonderful and inventive to bring a better shopping experience to the world. Currently, retailers need to be updated or adapt rapidly to the dynamic ways in which customers are choosing to do their shopping. Slice technology tries to link customers with retailers on an online platform thereby reducing the world into a virtual showroom.

In an instance where you like a product, take a picture of it and open the app. Upload the picture on the app to recognize the product and directs you to a web page where you can purchase that product online. Concurrently the retailer is notified that a client is interested in purchasing that commodity. Slyce will act as an independent app that lets one identify commodities from specific retailers or it shall be integrated with other retailer apps to make the dream a success.

Mobile commerce has been the primary goal of Slyce as it tries to focus on marketing as it tries to develop partnerships with leading consumer brands and providing the technology as a mobile commerce solution. Mobile commerce has in the recent past become one of the leading sources of income and revenue for most retailers. Mobile shopping has accounted for over 30% of online web traffic during holiday and festive season. Slyce strives to make the both consumer and retailer by taking on both consumer position and of the enterprise solution. By offering visual search recognition technology, the vision of slice is to achieve the ultimate goal of becoming the leading mobile commerce globally.

Frank Guerra New Co-Lead Counsel in Syngenta Litigation

PR Newswire reported this week that Frank Guerra has been appointed Co-Lead Counsel in the ongoing litigation against Syngenta Corn. Of course, the news is not surprising given the fact that his firm, Watts Guerra LLP, has been collecting claims against Syngenta for quite some time. In fact, they are estimated to have over 2,100 claims against Syngenta who is being held responsible for the drop in corn price in America. According to the litigation, the problem stems from the use of Syngenta’s genetically modified corn which was mixed into seeds. The issue caused corn prices to drop wholesale across America leaving many farmers that depend on their corn crops out in the cold.

Frank Guerra’s law firm has a long history of working to help bring justice to American workers and businesses. His partner Mikal Watts is known for closing a very impressive injury and death lawsuit against Pradaxa in federal court and was able to get all of the affected parties an astounding $650 million resolution. Watts has an equally impressive history of working hard to help American workers and he no doubt supports Guerra’s appointment as Co-Lead Counsel as the firm takes on another case.

According to the PR Newswire article where the appointment was announced, Guerra was appointed to his position by a judge in Minnesota and it is likely that the action will help to coordinate with other multi-district litigation that is also pending against Syngenta in Kansas.

Guerra commented that he is honored to have the chance to represent and bring justice to farmers in America that have been hurt by the actions of Syngenta. He explained that he worked on the family farm when he was a youth so he knows firsthand what the price in the corn market can do to a farm. He added that his law firm will work hard to make sure that every farmer harmed by Syngenta receives the appropriate financial reparations.

Taking The Big Slyce Of The Tech Pie

If you are somebody who is up on the current technology trends then chances are that you have heard of “Slyce” a Visual Search company with big plans. Many people are aware of Amazon and “Amazon Flow” a technology with largely the same concept. Yet the execution still leaves a lot to be desired. If you like things to work correctly anyway. That is where Slyce comes into the picture. The Visual Recognition Picture.

They are not looking to be just another app to compete with. They want to be the app that is commonplace for this tech. Probably the most practical and separating feature of the two is that with Slyce you can take a picture of any object. It does not need to be a package of any kind for recognition. Your buddy wearing some sweet kicks? Take a picture and find them in your size. It is really that simple. These are then matched up with competitors items for you to decide.

It is really the limits that are impressed upon the Amazon app that make it far less practical to use than Slyce. It is a welcome evolution of tech. There is also Amazon “Firefly” for Amazon Fire smartphones but it only allows you to browse Amazon for results. This giving Slyce the edge here as well.

Slyce is even raising the bare here by making it so that you can scan a barcode of the item and pay for it that instant. This is made possible by many deals and partnerships made by the company.

On this same note their answer to Amazons Firefly is “Pounce”. A consumer app that will make it possible for one click purchases on real in your hands items. This will surely be stiff competition if it gets rolling properly for them. There is even a sound recognition tech that will allow you to recognize and purchase music as you hear it in the real world. Awesome news for music fans.

Coming from a small startup in Toronto this company is sure firing on all cylinders as it stands now. Who knows what is next for a company as ambitious as this one is. One thing is for sure. If they continue to innovate in the ways that the company promises to deliver then success is imminent. This will be a technology that can and will change the face of commerce and the way we purchase goods and services in general.
