Kim Dao Gets a Skin Treatment Injection

We get to see Kim Dao get a skin treatment injection in a recent video the blogger posted on YouTube. Before we see the treatment process, Kim Dao shares that this is the first skin care treatment that she has ever received. On the day of the treatment Kim Dao is sitting in the back of her cab fresh faced with no makeup on as she heads to the clinic. Once Kim Dao arrives for her skin care treatment appointment she speaks with a consultant who recommends that she gets a specific treatment for her dry skin. The consultant even gave Kim Dao a bag full of different goodies upon her arrival. This is a bag that the clinic gives to every one of their clients, and it even came with an adapter. For Kim Dao this came in handy since she forgot her adapter at home. Kim Dao then goes to a room for the doctor to take photos of her skin to decide the best method for treating her skin. After Kim Dao and her doctor have a full on consultation about her skin and the treatment, she goes in and they get to work. The process is intricate, but afterwards Kim Dao looks fresher and softer.

Waiakea’s Rapid Rise To Success

How One Man Defied The Odds

Ryan Emmons isn’t what most people would associate the bottled water industry with. He is a fairly young man who decided to create his company right out of college. He didn’t have much in terms of capital or experience. However, it isn’t hard to understand how he was able to succeed in the bottled water industry. Customers are hungry for something better in their bottled water and he is giving it to them.

The Success Simply Kept Coming

Forbes reported to them that the amazing success of Waiakea water is something that stands out even among the most successful startups of our time. There are so many out there that have made themselves into overnight successes, but how many have managed to grow by 4000% over 3 years.

That level of success is exactly what separates this brand from others out there. Emmons has certainly made a name for himself simply due to the ability to create a bottled water company, without much in capital, that manages to grow at such a rapid rate. Customers like what he is giving them so far.

What Customers Want In Water

Bottled water customers are a poorly understood demographic. So many people misunderstand what the bottled water crowd is about. Some companies believe you can simply label tap water “natural” and expect customers to flock to it. Companies that have tried this haven’t seen too much success in recent years, but Waiakea Water is an exception.

Ryan Emmons isn’t giving them something he himself would never drink. He derives the water he uses for his brand from Hawaii’s natural geysers. This water doesn’t just provide clean water. It provides nutrients that are essential to a healthy body in abundance.

The Future Of Waiakea

Ryan Emmons has made himself into a smashing success, but it doesn’t seem as if Waiakea water is headed in a bad direction anytime soon. The company is now expanding into philanthropy and is currently pursuing efforts to provide clean water for those in developing countries.

Emmons hasn’t just created another brand with his bottled water. He has made a movement that defies what so many in corporate America value most. People want to know that the brands they buy are giving back to the world and making the world a better place. That is exactly what Emmons is doing with his. Waiakea Water.

Mobility Remedies Offered to the Central Texas Regional Mobility

Mike Heiligenstein heads the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority in Austin (Texas), as the Executive Director. He is the President of the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association. Besides this, he is part of the Advisory Board of Texas A&M Transportation Institute. Before Mike’s appointment into the Mobility Authority, he worked as a public official for 23 years in the Williamson County.

The Texas-based Mobility Authority was created in 2002 as an independent agency with the sole aim of improving the transportation network in Williamson and Travis counties respectively. It oversees the implementation of innovative and integrated transport system remedies so as to ease congestion and encourage economic vitality. An Executive Director heads the agency led by a small sized professional staff. The agency contracts private firms to carry out its projects in the transportation system that includes roadways, airports, seaports, and transit services. The institution funds its projects and operations from revenue bonds, user fees, and taxes.

Traffic is the biggest problem for Williamson County in which transit experts have offered remedies during the Williamson County Growth Summit. The summit provided the opportunity to raise transportation problems. The discussion panel included Mike Heiligenstein (Executive Director, CTRMA), Joseph Kopser (RideScout LLC Founder), Leandre Johns (Uber Technologies External Affairs Director), and Jared Ficklin (ArgoDesign). During the conference held at Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel & Conference Center, they proposed an aerial gondola system for Central Austin. The best remedy to the mobility demands of the rapidly growing population especially in the suburb is to construct more and smarter roads, and also to invest in new technologies like driverless vehicles and ridesharing application.

The restructuring of the infrastructure has helped a lot, but the future needs expansion of Williamson capacity to make them smarter, more efficient, and more technically modernized. The policy makers also have to make building and land-use codes to remain flexible for future needs. For instance, the future parking garage doesn’t fit any of the current building codes. It is, therefore, necessary to restructure the ancient models to fit the description of a modernized country transport system.
