Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, you have undoubtedly heard of the WEN hair by Chaz system; either you’re watching TV at 3am, you’re seeing ads while you’re browsing the web, or your coworker is gushing about what it did for her locks. The element that sets this product apart from its competition is the fact that no part of it is a shampoo – it’s a cleansing conditioner system that is derived from natural ingredients, promising a light, supple, moisturized volume that will swear you off of ordinary shampoo and conditioner forever.
The creator of WEN, a stylist by the name of Chaz Dean, seems to understand and relate to the skepticism of his clients when they approach the product at first – he claims he was a little unnerved initially at the concept of eliminating what was thought to be the tried-and-true shampoo/conditioner combo. He stands by the idea that shampoo breaks down and ultimately damages tresses, however, and the masses seem to agree with him. He sells his products on high end stores and online sites including Ebay and Guthy-Renker.com
Fine-haired ladies may be concerned at the concept of conditioning without a shampoo counterpart, as excessive moisture tends to weigh down thinner strands and make them flat and sticky. If you’re curious about WEN but are nervous about taking the plunge for that very reason, fear not – the good folks over at Bustle have got your back. Emily McClure, fellow fine-hair bearer, used the product for 7 days and documented every step of her routine, from noting her shower time to posting pictures of the finished look. Overall, her experience with WEN was really positive; in addition to feeling as though her hair was thicker and more voluminous, she also states she received compliments on her shiny, healthy looking locks from friends. Looking good!

George Soros posits that Europe and America may not be willing to provide Ukraine with financial support because of two factors. One is the ongoing financial crisis in Greece, which has not set a good example for the EU to follow in Ukraine. The crisis in Greece was precipitated by the Euro crisis. The second factor is the Minsk agreement, which induced authorities in the EU to maintain a tight financial leash on Ukraine. The euro crisis has occasioned a shortage of resources for various budgetary purposes. EU’s budget stands at Û145 billion. This is about 1% of the member states’ GDP. With Europe stagnating in terms of growth, member states are not willing to increase their contributions to the EU budget. In the euro zone, there is shortage of funds because the zone lacks a budget of its own.
George believes that European authorities, especially the German leaders, are responsible for mishandling the Greek crisis. These leaders agreed to provide Greece with emergency loans. However, the interest rates were punitive. In addition, the authorities brought forth their own reform programs. They also micromanaged the reform agenda instead of letting Greece take ownership of the reform process. George Soros posits that even though Greece should be blamed for the financial crisis, the largest blame lies with the German leadership because they were in charge of the reform and micromanagement of the same. He continues to say that the national debt of Greece is unsustainable but authorities in Europe are not willing to write off their loans to the country.
Soros contends that Europe and IMF have disputed over writing down their loans. The European authorities have been correcting their mistakes and are now insisting on bailing in instead of bailing out bondholders. The essence of bailing in is that bondholders write down their bond values. However, the authorities repeat other mistakes. Soros contends that the biggest mistake made by the European authorities is to treat Ukraine in a similar way as Greece. Soros continues to assert that the new Ukraine is seeking to be better than Greece. Even though the country is not a member of the EU, it is actively defending the same against Russia’s political and military threat.
George argues that the future of both the European Union and Ukraine are at stake. The loss of Ukraine would make Russia more superior, thus become an alternative to the EU through the rule of force instead of the rule of law. According to Soros, if Europe resolves to provide Ukraine with the finances that it require, President Putin will have no choice but abandon his aggression. George agrees that Putin can easily say that the economic troubles in Russia have been caused by Western hostility. He continues to say that the populace of Russia will agree with Putin’s arguments. However, should Europe generously assist Ukraine with finances, the people of Russia will blame Putin for the country’s financial troubles. This way, the Russians may force him to follow the economic reforms in the new Ukraine.
Status Labs is an online reputation management firm located in Austin, Texas. The President of the company, Darius Fisher, has been becoming more and more of a public name as he has taken up the stance for privacy rights and other just, social causes. It’s hard to believe that Status Labs, who currently is one of the premier reputation management companies in the world, once had their own reputation issues to deal with. Fisher decided to talk a little bit about what it took to get his company back on the right path.
The first thing that Fisher did with his company was to attempt to change the culture from within the office. When the company feels like its employees are all on the same page then outbursts and problems are less likely to happen. So, Fisher decided to implement a few key ways to get team morale up. Status Labs started doing catered lunches on Fridays and they even opened up the office to well behaved pets so that employees didn’t need to leave their animals home alone all day. From there it was a short leap to doing company activities outside of the office such as kayaking or BBQs.
After taking care of the ‘inner politics’, Fisher focused on getting Status Labs a better reputation in their home town of Austin. The reason that controversy was so easy to leap onto Status Labs was that they didn’t have a real anchor to the community. So, Fisher started engaging Status Labs with more and more local charities such as Dress for Success and The Capital Food Bank of Texas. Dropping roots down deep into your home town leads to more people believing and backing you up and eventually giving you the benefit of the doubt in the future.
Finally, Fisher and Status Labs seemed to be ahead of the curve when it came to dealing with their crisis. The next key is to prevent it from happening again by maintaining all of these positive aspects that they worked so hard to implement. Public relations crisis can happen to anyone, so it is best to be prepared.

It may have even been today or yesterday, but chances are good that it hasn’t been that long. Recall the furrowed brow that information caused, or how quickly you dismissed any consideration of using that item, company or service.
