Former Uber Backer, Shervin Pishevar, goes on 21-Hour Tweet-a-thon.

Shervin Pishevar is an entrepreneur and philanthropist currently residing in San Francisco, California. He was formally employed with Menlo Ventures, where he led the company in making investments in Tumblr, Uber Series B, and more.

One of his most recent jobs was working for Sherpa Capital, which he co-founded with Scott Stanford. This company, much like his last, works to invest in promising companies and adviser start-ups. The work done with Sherpa Capital has been reported on by Fortune magazine.

Shervin Pishevar recently took to Twitter to share his ideas on the future and share some legal advice, some of which teeters on the fine line of crazy. During this Twitter rant, Pishevar said he believes the stock market will drop 6000 points in the coming months and bitcoin will fall to a stable 2000-5000.

Nearly everything that Shervin Pishevar mentioned during the 21-hour Twitter rant was negative. He also thinks the days of California’s hold on tech development is over. He said that entrepreneurship is borderless and will ultimately lead to other locations evolving to great heights than California.

He considers big tech giants like Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, and Amazon to have monopolies in their respective fields. This could be the primary factor in his hypothesis of the downfall of Silicon Valley and California.

“These 5 giants have too much power,” Pishevar wrote in a Tweet. “{They stifle] startups. Uber might be the last giant to eke out before it was too late.”

Uber was a company once backed heavily by Pishevar, he even worked for the company for a brief period of time before creating his own venture firm.

Shervin Pishevar doesn’t only believe California will fail, he also believes America will take a backseat to China in the coming years.

“Last week China built a train station in 9 hours,” Pishevar wrote in defense of China’s efficiency.

Doe Deere’s Pot O’ Gold

So, who is Doe Deere?

-Only one of the most successful young women at the turn of this century able to commit a crime and get away with it! Introducing “Lime Crime,” a line of vegan cosmetics hatched from the secret chambers of Doe Deere’s vastly creative mastermind. This female phenomenon is guilty of being in love with two things: fairy tales and makeup! She would certainly be shamefaced if deeply colorful, magically inspiring, and cruelty-free products (in shades of pinks, purples, and greens) could be outlawed.

 

This Russian native is the beauty world’s “Unicorn Queen” of colors, attracting Generation Z consumers like little leprechauns with her fanciful eye-shadow palettes, loose pigments, and whimsically colored nail polish which glimmer and flash as if they were coveted pieces gold found in the pot at the end of Lime Crime’s rainbow.

 

Growing up in New York City, Doe Deere started her creative endeavor in 2004 after attending the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. There she had an epiphany and dropped out, realizing she was still in an experimental phase and had not yet discovered her niche. However, ever since she got into makeup in 2008, she’s never looked back. Deere’s Lime Crime lineup then evolved from her earlier days of online product giveaways and Vlog-style beauty tutorials to currently holding a solid fan base of 3 million followers on Instagram.

 

Lime Crime’s primary goal is to make people feel happy in their own skin. Doe Deere is motivated by her incredible desire to stimulate and transform people as if a magical fairy just waved a wand over their heads! She fully embraces the feelings that come from new impressions based on different fantasies and interesting mythical creatures. -Not surprisingly, she chose a unicorn to be the Lime Crime mascot. Her latest color palette collection, aptly named Alchemy, was inspired by envisioning swirling potions in shades of burning coppers, vivid purples, and intoxicating greens, all of which brought Alchemy to life.

 

Today the trendsetter works from sunshiny Los Angeles, California and dedicates herself to creating cruelty-free and vegan cosmetics. This allows her to generously give to her favorite charities for animal-rescue operations, women, and children. Currently, Lime Crime supports a myriad of charities like Girls Inc., HOLA for kids in LA, Sanctuary For Families, the Bideawee animal shelter, Adopt NY and the Red Cross. Clearly, Doe Deere has a heart like the pot o’ gold she created at the end of her Lime Crime rainbow.

How Roberto Santiago Developed Two Dynamic Malls In Joao Pessoa

Roberto Santiago is a well-known entrepreneur in the state of Paraiba, Brazil. He owns two shopping malls in the city of Joao Pessoa which are Manaira Shopping Mall and Mangeira Shopping Mall. He opened Manaira Shopping Mall in 1989 and Mangeira Shopping Mall in 2015. Prior to this he owned a company which built cardboard display boxes for other businesses. This company was hugely successful and counted among its clients some of the biggest companies in Brazil.

As the chief executive officer of both of his malls, Roberto Santiago guides them through his leadership and strategic vision. He says that if you’re going to run a successful mall you’ve always got to give shoppers a reason to come in. Because of this, his malls have many dining, shopping, entertainment, banking, working out, and educational reasons for people to visit it. The educational part comes into play because Manaira Shopping Mall includes a small college in its premises.

Manaira Shopping mall is a really big mall, the biggest in the state of Paraiba in fact. It contains 280 stores and a huge food court which offers food of all price ranges. Roberto Santiago says that he purposely keeps the mall as versatile as possible so that when new trends appear he can take advantage of them. One hugely popular addition he made was that of Domus Hall. Roberto Santiago said that he wanted to start attracting some of the big musical talents of not just Brazilian musicians but also those on the international stage. To this end, Domus Hall was built on top of Manaira Shopping Mall. It can hold 10,000 people for live concert events. Keeping true to his vision of versatility, it can also be easily modified to hold other types of events like trade shows, business conference, theatrical productions, and art shows. There have also been many graduation ceremonies and weddings plus receptions held in Domus Hall in recent years, he says.

Roberto Santiago wants people of all ages to feel welcome when visiting Maneira Shopping Mall. He attracts younger people with arcades, a bowling alley, concert, movies, and some restaurants specifically catering to children’s tastes. He also attracts older people by offering more nuanced cuisines at this mall, upscale shopping options, and plays and theater in Domus Hall.

Between his two malls in Joao Pessoa, Roberto Santiago, directly and indirectly, has provided employment opportunities to thousands of people in this city. Additionally, the areas around his malls have had an economic revitalization with new housing, retail, and office space being built around them. Even during the recent Brazilian recession his malls continued to grow both physically and when it comes to revenues and profits for both him and the businesses that have decided to open their stores in his malls.
