I was charmed just now, because UK YouTube makeup artist Lauren Luke was on my Channel 11 news. Lauren is so talented that her YouTube videos have launched a big career as a makeup artist, and selling products that are currently featured at Sephora (where else!).
You have to go to Lauren's website, not just to see the makeup tutorials, but read her adorable commentary. She said she was super-scared when she made and uploaded her first makeup video, but soon she was a success. She is the cutest ever, commenting on her younger sister and family. She's a very down-to-earth person, and this approach is perfect for showing women how to apply makeup to get the effects they want.
So, here's a completely "homegrown" internet-based success story. Lauren's making her own videos, she came up with idea, and she obviously has a lot of creativity in all aspects of her business.
My question is: does the President want everybody to stop wearing makeup? Because there's been a bill floating around since this spring that, if passed, would give the Executive branch the power to cut anybody off the internet.
The now-55-page bill will "permits the president to 'direct the national response to the cyber threat' if necessary for "the national defense and security." The White House is supposed to engage in 'periodic mapping' of private networks deemed to be critical, and those companies 'shall share' requested information with the federal government."
Like, totally cool or what? There's some freedom for ya. Next election, if we vote the "wrong way," maybe the'll cut our fingers off too. Seems to me this "bill" began around the time that news was coming out of Iran via Twitter, and the Iranians were fighting hard to keep people from getting messages out, or back in, via private networks, like Twitter.
