In 2002, the UAE issued a decree that opened up the owning of real estate to foreigners. Hussain Sajwani saw this as a great business opportunity to sell luxury real estate to foreigners. He founded DAMAC Properties which is now part of DAMAC Group.

His first development was sold out months before it was even breaking ground on the project. DAMAC Properties now employees over 2000 people and has built almost 18,000 homes and has another 44,000 in various stages of development.

In order to market his property developments to high net worth individuals, Hussain Sajwani has designed some over-the-top marketing techniques.

As an example, he offers a free Lamborghini or BMW to customers who purchase one of his homes in the month of January each year. He’s has also given free jet skis and, for a few months in 2016, he gave a free studio apartment away for the purchase of one of his villas or mansions.

Hussain Sajawni and DAMAC Properties recently completed a huge new property development, Akoya, which was done in partnership with Donald Trump.

The development encompasses almost 1,000 acres and has an 18-hole golf course that is named after Trump. He also partnered with other luxury brands in order to furnish the homes including Fendi, Versace, and Bugatti.

Another property is in development with The Trump Organization as well. this property, called Akoya Oxygen, will be on 1,260 acres with another golf course named after Donald Trump and designed by Tiger Woods.

Under Hussain Sajwani’s leadership, DAMAC Properties earned $2.3 billion 2015 and had profits of 50%. Hussain himself is worth an estimated $3.2 billion.

Trying Out WEN By Chaz With Wonderful Results

As a beauty blogger, it is safe to say I receive my fair share of products to review and sample, both from the companies that distribute the product and from fellow bloggers. Though when a fellow blogger gives me a product, I know they must have thoroughly enjoyed it enough to pass it my way.

This was the case for my trial with WEN Hair by Chaz. A friend and fellow beauty blogger had recently reviewed the product for her Youtube channel and as often happens when we get together, recommended I give it a try. My problems with my fine hair are well documented and she definitely knows more than most how often I struggle with keeping my hair manageable for more than a few hours at a time.

My First Date with WEN by Chaz

The first week of using the cleansing conditioner went perfectly. Within only two days I noticed that my hair was behaving and feeling softer well into the next day. My daily ritual of having to reapply product and re-style my hair by mid-afternoon was no longer necessary as I noticed my hair kept completely in place throughout the day.

At first, I must admit I was worried about not shampooing but after the first use, I realized that WEN Hair by Chaz cleaned my hair just as well, if not better, than my favorite shampoo and did not leave it feeling parched as it often does after I wash my hair.

Before the week’s end, I was already ordering my six month supply of the conditioning cleanser.

Wen By Chaz

My new favorite cleansing conditioner is the creation of celebrity stylist, Chaz Dean. Originally created for his superstar clients, Dean released his formula and allowed the public access to the same conditioner Brooke Shields uses!

Using Every Means Necessary to Fight Oppression is What Thor Halvorssen Does

Whenever the truth about speech suppression and terrible human suffering must be made known, you can bet the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) will be one of the groups involved with spreading the word whether that means sending video tapes through airmail or using good old-fashioned smoke signals. Human Rights Foundation has been inspiring people to defy cease and desist orders and tell the world what dictators and their surrogates have been doing in lands like Iran, North Korea, Venezuela and Russia. At the helm of the HRF is Thor Halvorssen, a young man who saw a lot of suffering growing up including in his own family and decided to take it on through using modern ideas and artistic methods.

Halvorssen is someone that you probably will never figure out with his political views being almost as unusual as his heritage. He is both Norwegian and Venezeulan, the grandson of a man who smuggled contraband during Nazi control of Norway in WWII, and the son of a man who gave Hugo Chavez’s regime problems during its occupation of Venezuela. Halvorssen really considers himself to be neither liberal nor conservative, though while he has condemned various forms of communism and socialism he actually supported the campaign of socialist candidate Bernie Sanders. Yet he has led efforts to expose communist suppression in nations like Cuba and China and read full article.

One of Halvorssen’s earliest efforts to lead human rights protests happened back in 1989 when he met up with a group of students in South Africa who were against the apartheid. More recent adventures include a time that he traveled to Vietnam to find out how authorities had silenced a Buddhist priest and his followers while a cameraman smuggled the tape out. Just a couple years ago he and a North Korean dissident sent DVDs and computer files across the border from South Korea to a group of citizens pretending to harvest crops. The HRF awards prizes to various individuals at its Oslo Freedom Forum, a place that’s like a secret meeting where people are given the opportunity to explain how they defied tyranny and discuss how they can change their countries and learn more about Thor.
