Jeunesse Global hits record sales numbers with Instantly Ageless

Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis were already known as some of the top entrepreneurs in the North American direct-marketing business when, in 2009, they decided to found health and beauty company Jeunesse Global. Ray and Lewis had spent a lifetime building some of the top companies in the industry. But the couple finally decided that they wanted to try retirement in 2009 as they approached their 70th birthdays.

For the innately industrious duo, retirement only lasted a couple of weeks. Ray and Lewis simply couldn’t adjust to the lack of stimulation and absence of purpose that retired life entailed. They founded Jeunesse Global out of their garage as a means to pass the time. Soon, they were spending up to 60 hours per week on their new company.

The growth that ensued was phenomenal. By the end of its first year, Jeunesse Global had done nearly $1 million in business. This exponential growth continued for the next five years. By the time that the company had been in operation for eight years, Jeunesse Global was valued at more than $1 billion, an almost impossible rise from a company that just eight years prior had its global headquarters next to the couple’s gas can in the garage.

The secret behind the company’s rapid and stunning success has been its ability to spot underserved market niches and deliver top products that are able to effectively address those needs. One example of the company’s ability to quickly develop highly useful and in-demand products is its Instantly Ageless micro-crème. Developed for busy professionals who may not have the time or the money to invest in salon care but who need the same level of quality, Instantly Ageless is able to hold its own against the best competing brands.

But it is in the area of anti-aging where the micro-crème really stands tall. Made with the company’s patented APT-200 molecule, Instantly Ageless is able to diminish current wrinkles, prevent the formation of new ones and give skin a healthy, youthful glow that only Jeunesse products can deliver. Instantly Ageless is available exclusively through authorized Jeunesse Global distributors.

Contraband cell phone use in prisons is a nationwide issue being dealt with by Securus’ WS Technologies. As of last month, data by Securus Technologies suggested that nationwide occurrences are as serious as it is getting. From July of 2016 through July of 2017 , WCS detection systems prevented millions of illegal communication attempts by prison inmates; it is a safety concern for experts in the department of corrections.


Robert Johnson is an ex-police officer who works to resolve gun violence in prison. “Inmates having access to cell phones, being able to use them is a danger to the community. ” For seven years now, Johnson has been addressing device violence since he was strategically attacked by an inmate with a contraband weapon.


WCS resolves conflicts of interest with precautionary measures preventing contraband cell phones from being made to connect wirelessly.


WCS takes initiative by resolving network security concerns, like this “We are literally putting up a cell phone network,” a Securus spokesperson asking not to be identified, said “Once the phone attaches to the network and a number is dialed, we get to choose what to with that number”. They also work with facilities management to curb stolen cell phone use by reducing red-tape of government laws, and by passing a requirement for wireless carriers to work with device tampering prevention.


“While still disturbing, fortunately this latest news is just about a video,” said Captain Johnson. I pray to God every day when I open the newspaper that I’m not going to read another story like mine or Kendarius Edwards Jr’s, the nine-month-old whose violent murder was orchestrated by an incarcerated gang member with a contraband cell phone”.


Johnson works for Securus Technologies as a paid consultant now, providing service to the community where he deems fit.


WCS Securus Technologies is committed to activities such as information management, incident management, public broadcasts, and emergency response. Technology serving civil and criminal case episodes may be found on.

The Multi-Layered Approach Of Rocketship Education

If you watch the news long enough you might start to lose faith in American society. School shootings, drug crime, a seeming lack of morals, ethics and political leadership all seem to be par for the course these days. But if you dig a little deeper into what is going on in the local levels of society you will start to find more positive happenings.

Take Rocketship Education for example. This is a local charter school based out of California whose curriculum is a breath of fresh air in the education system. This is more than just a learning environment, it is a learning experience. What is learned is very important, obviously, but how children learn is just as important. It gives them a baseline on which they will learn many other things outside of school without really trying.

To help clarify this, Rocketship has core values that they actually teach the children. Most schools will have their values listed on their websites, but Rocketship Education puts those values into action. Last year for example, one of their schools brought upon a project for their students that centered on gratitude. In this project, the students were to simply write down what they were grateful for in regards to a fellow student.

While it sounds like a very simple thing to do, which it is, the lesson it teaches is a social-emotional one. This is more than just teaching math, English and the other core lessons of a school. This teaches the character one needs to actually get along with others in a positive manner. Doing this also fosters a positive environment which is conducive to learning the core lessons much easier.

Rocketship Education takes a multi-layered approach to learning. They do much more than just teach to a test. They teach children the basic and advanced knowledge they will need in the real world, and the social skills to implement that knowledge successfully.

Jed McCaleb Expands Financial Service Options

When Jed McCaleb created Mt. Gox for the players of Magic: The Gathering Online to use as a stock exchange for their cards, he never expected it to blossom into the world’s first bitcoin exchange. When McCaleb created eDonkey2000, he never expected to provide the peer to peer file sharing industry with the protocol they would still use to this day.

With the unorthodox success of his previous companies, it makes one wonder what exactly his new company has in store for the near future. In 2013, along with Joyce Kim, Jed McCaleb created Stellar – a new technology for financial institutions.

The intention of the technology is to provide a cleaner path of communication between banks and other financial organization. By utilizing such technologies, Jed hopes to provide financial services for individuals he calls the unbanked: those with no affordable options for financial services.

Jed claims he got the idea for Stellar after he realized the potential of Bitcoin and understood exactly which problems could be solved by using Bitcoin in the correct way. Instead of creating his own cryptocurrency, he decided to create a system that would allow companies to make easy use of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in a seamless manor.

Jed hopes that his newest innovations will lower the costs of expensive fees that financial institutions are known for. He says that this will enable individuals who could not previously afford financial services to now have them. He hopes to not only provide these services for low and middle class Americans, but to those in developing and third-world countries that have no options what so ever for banking and financial services.

Whether Stellar remains in its current role or not is unknown at this point. If Jed’s previous business tactics are any indication of the future, it is hard to say what exactly the intention of Stellar will be in a few years. Mt Gox. started as a resource for video game players and evolved into something truly special.

While Stellar isn’t one-hundred percent unique technology at the moment, Jed McCaleb has the potential to create something truly unique.

The Original Habanero Shaker Joel Friant’s Innovative Spice Creation

Joel Friant is a free-spirited entrepreneur and small business owner who lives with enthusiasm stemming from his creative ideas being a financial investor. Starting out in real estate working in sales, Friant then transitioned into the restaurant business, creating the concept of fast food thai. While using his creative mind, Joel Friant came up with the Original Habanero Shaker, which contains the Habanero pepper from China, containing the highest capsaicin amounts. This is one of the hottest peppers known to man when it comes to comparing the natural heat level to other peppers that are recognized already for being some of the hottest peppers anyone has discovered.

Habaneros, according to the Scoville heat scale, they have 200,000 heat units, comparing to the average, it’s fifty times higher. Today, Joel Friant is using the invention of his Original Habanero Shaker to revolutionize the spice industry with the goal in mind for the person tasting the food, to have a rememerabal experience. You can describe the Habanero Shaker as a spicy, buttery, and tasty spice that blew Joel Friant away first trying out the pepper in high school. What makes his invention stands out is, most spices are mixed with cheap spices and salt, so what he wanted to do is create an original Habanero spice.

One thing that has been key for his success has been the way he prepares the peppers before even using them. What he does is harvest the Habanero peppers before reaching maturity, which is the process when they start reaching their hottest point, so Friant prefers them to be ripe. When you have a perfect pepper that has been harvested to perfection, it’s a taste among peppers that exceeds the rest. Some of the health benefits that come with the Original Habanero Shaker is being a natural pain killer, and also enhances the body’s immune system, with the pepper being rich in Vitamin A & B with no artificial flavors, preservatives, or additives.
