Livio Bisterzo, Creator of Hippeas

Why did the founder of Hippeas and the CEO of Green Park Brands. Livio Bisterzo, choose chickpeas instead of maybe lentils for his new snack? He said that the trend towards products based on plants and the fact that chickpeas are one of the hottest industry trends led them to focus on chickpeas as the “hero ingredient”. It took countless rounds of product development to get to the bite, crunch, taste, shape, and texture that they wanted.

Hippeas organic chickpea puff snack is vegan, gluten-free, kosher, has only 100 calories to a pack, has three grams of protein, is a good source of fiber, is low in fat, and comes in flavors including Pepper Power, Sweet & Smokin’, Herbs We Trust, and Far Out Fajita. These organic chickpea puffs are healthy and flavorful as well as being addictively delicious.

Launched on June 13, 2016, the original retail partners included Starbucks, Holland and Barrett, and Boots. Hippeas became the newest product in Starbucks’ grab-and-go snacks with the Vegan White Cheddar and the Far Out Fajita being available in over 7,500 Starbucks locations across the United States. The merchandising lead for Starbucks Retail Branded Partnerships, Carolyn Chinn, said that they are constantly seeking new food items that are enjoyable and which also cater to dietary needs.

The identity of Hippeas is geared toward a modern ‘hippie’ and millennial generation and also a partnering with Farm Africa on a joint initiative ‘Food for Good’ that gives back by supporting eastern African chickpea farmers.

The packaging, visual identity, tone of voice, and personality were created by Jkr, a food innovation company. Stephen McDavid, Jkr design director, said that the aim was to strike a balance between irreverent humor and being socially-conscious. The personality took inspiration from the smiling face of the original hippie era but is updated for today’s modern audience. The charismatic visual identity is a bold yellow face with a different colored tongue for each of the flavors in order to make the snacks stand out on the shelves, online and in the minds of consumers.

Livio Bisterzo, now 35, originated from Italy, attended the University of the Arts in London, and built businesses ranging from consumer goods to hospitality. In 2015, Livio Bisterzo combined years of experience with natural foods with a passion for living a healthy lifestyle. That led to creating Green Park Brands with a goal to manufacture healthy products and also create positive social impact.

With the game-changing Hippeas, chickpeas have been thrust into a spotlight and are on the way to becoming one of the United States’ fastest growing snack brands.

Former Hawks Owner Takes on Insurance Company

The New Hampshire Insurance Company is soon to be in some trouble if the Atlanta Hawks owners have their way.

The Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC, the group that once owned the NBA franchise, has decided to file a lawsuit against the New Hampshire Insurance Company over a breach of contract that involved a settlement of claims. This former group happens to include Bruce Levenson, a controlling partner although the lawsuit itself doesn’t make any mention of Tony Ressler, the group’s current principal owner. Only in June of 2015 did former general manager Danny Ferry reach a buyout agreement with the Hawks ownership, which according to an EPSN report ended a relationship that was originally supposed to be for six years and worth $18 million. The lawsuit claims that AIG, who was named in it, failed and refused to pay for the covered losses made in employee terminations in bad faith. All despite the fact that AIG was obligated to pay for them all.

A major figure involved with the Atlanta Hawks LLC franchise is former owner Bruce Levenson. Levenson is a native of Chevy Chase, Maryland but was born in Washington, D.C. He attended Washington University in St. Louis and then got a law degree from American University, using that to increase his overall business acumen. His first step was to found his own company called the United Communications Group (UCG) based out of Gaithersburg, and was mainly used for analyzing statistics involving oil prices, communication and technology. This came to a peak when he and his business partner Ed Peskowitz became majority owning partners of the Atlanta Hawks LLC in 2004, which is a group of businessmen who own the basketball team and Phillips Arena.

A Brief Overview of Fabletics and How It’s Taking on Amazon

Fabletics is a company that has dedicated itself to offering a high-quality gym, athletics and yoga wears for women. The company, which was co-founded Kate Hudson, has a goal of making women sexy. When it comes to high quality, most of the athletic wears are pricey, and many people cannot afford them. Fabletics products are of quality, but they have strived to offer them at affordable rates and in a convenient online shop. They offer a broad range of goods such as hoodies, tees, tops, sports bras and many others. The company has achieved a competitive advantage over competitors because of their twenty-four-hour customer service through an online shopping platform which is secure and friendly.

 

Getting Started With Fabletics

 

There is a short quiz that is offered at their platform to new users on lifestyles, and it just takes a few minutes. The aim of the question is to help the company’s stylists who are dedicated to knowing your taste on various items so that they can choose items for you based on how you answered the questions. Once you create an account, you can pick the items of your interest every month and complete the purchase effortlessly. However, you can also skip this when you do not feel like buying anything that month. Another option of becoming a VIP member is whereby you will be receiving the items on a monthly basis, but you will be offered a discount. Signing up on their website is free, and so it is easy to get started.

 

Fabletics Taking on Amazon

 

Amazon controls 20% of the online market in the fashion niche making it difficult for new entrants to penetrate. However, Kate Hudson has gone against the odds achieving a business growth of $250 million in just a period of three years. Fabletics has established a large online customer base within a short period using a subscription mechanism and selling their products directly to the customers. The trick perhaps is that Fabletics provides products that motivate their customers thus pushing them a little further than their limits. Another powerful tool is the convenience of online shopping coupled with a membership plan making them unique and reliable.

 

In the past, many brands which were of high quality were pricey. Today, for a new company to carve a niche in the competitive market and hard economic times it has to come up with a different strategy so as to achieve success. Some of the factors that a brand should look into are customer experience, fashionable design, and brand recognition among others so that they can cater for the current clients.

 

The company is expanding rapidly and has plans of establishing itself in various locations and opening more stores apart from the ones in California, Florida, Illinois and Hawaii. This shows that their strategy is working and paying as well. Fabletics believes their dedication towards making their customers happy and getting what they what is what has made them successful in a business that is highly competitive.

George Soros Is Funding Political Reform Groups

George Soros, who is in favor of immigration reform, has contributed over $2 million in campaign funding to remove County Sheriff Joe Arpaio from office. This is the most amount of money Soros has ever spent in a local law enforcement political campaign. His PAC group Maricopa Strong has received funding from other like-minded individuals like Laurene Powell Jobs and John Arnold. Soros had previously been involved in political campaigns to reform criminal justice by replacing local prosecutors.

In September of this year, George Soros had been reported to invest more than $500 million in funding migrant businesses in the United States and Europe. He hopes to spark a movement of investors to also support migrant businesses. He believes that governments are not completely covering the needs of immigrants and the private sector needs to pick up the slack. Immigrants often suffer periods of idle despair and struggle to fully integrate socially and financially.

In January, George Soros donated $8 million to boost the campaign platform of Hillary Clinton. This is his largest political donation since the Kerry versus Bush election. In December of last year, he donated $6 million to super PACs that supported Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

George Soros was very shocked by the loss of Hillary Clinton. Soros had read President-elect Trump’s 100-day plan to change the country, and he sees it as a step backwards for the progressive movement. Soros plans on banding together with other progressives to go against Trump and his policies the upcoming year.

The super PAC that Soros had favored is named Priorities USA. Including the $6million by George Soros, they had raised over $25 million in total in the second half of 2015. Their total donations for the year totaled to $41 million.

During the Kerry campaign in 2004, George Soros donated a total of $20 million towards the campaign and super PACs. Soros also donated $1 million to Priorities USA in 2012 to support President Barack Obama. He also supported Barack Obama during the 2008 primaries over Hillary Clinton.

Alex Soros, the son of George Soros, created a super PAC for Jewish voters in the United States. Bend the Arc PAC is the first Jewish super Pac to focus on local Jewish issues. The group directly contributes towards progressive political campaigns that support inequality, marriage equality, social justice and immigration reform. Alex Soros had previously backed candidates that promoted social justice, donating over $1.2 million of his own money.

Using Wen by Chaz on Natural Bleached Hair

After decades of using harsh shampoos to cleanse my hair and then following up with extra thick conditioners in the hopes of restoring what I just stripped away, I finally decided to try Wen by Chaz Dean (https://chazdean.com/store.aspx). After one use, I fell in love. I’m African American with natural hair. My hair often feels hard when it’s been washed with a harsh shampoo. After using Wen, it felt normal. Not too soft or too hard.

I believed I had finally stumbled upon a product that I should continue working with. Now after six months, I haven’t changed my mind. I’m still in love with Wen by Chaz.

When I first started using Wen, my hair was a natural salt and pepper. A couple of months later I decided to go try something different. I choose to dye my hair red using henna. My hair turned four colors: red, brown, black and gray. I didn’t like the mottled look, so I decided to try something more extreme. I was determined to bleach my hair light blonde.

I’d read all kinds of frightening stories on Twitter about bleaching hair. I’d heard my hair would fall out; I would burn my scalp with the bleach or I simply wouldn’t get good coverage doing a “dye job” at home. None of my fears were realized, the dye job was perfect. When it was time to wash my hair after applying the dye, I became a little nervous.

The hair washing had to stop the action of the bleach. Wen stopped the bleaching action. I hoped my hair wouldn’t feel dried out and brittle after bleaching. After washing with Wen and then using the Wen conditioner, I didn’t notice a difference in my hair’s texture. Overall, I’ve been completely satisfied with Wen by Chaz. It’s given my touchable hair that’s easy to manage since the day I first started using it nearly six months ago.

I love my hair now and one of the reasons I do can be directed a Wen by Chaz. I love the way it looks, although it’s DIFFERENT. And, I especially love the way it feels every day, but even more so after it’s just washed with Wen by Chaz. Wen hair care products are available on eBay and Guthy-Renker, try a bottle for yourself today!
