Jeunesse Global ranks among the fastest-growing businesses in the health and beauty industry today. Founded in 2009, in just 9 years, the company has gone from a garage-based hobby business to being one of the most important global distributors and manufacturers of health and beauty products in the world.
The company’s founders, Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis, had long been well-known stalwarts of the North American direct-marketing business. They had been behind the formation of some of the most successful companies in the industry, making them millionaires by the time they were 30. But as the couple approached their 70s, they decided that they wanted to spend more time with their grandkids and with each other. They thought they would try the retired life.
But reality quickly asserted itself. Ray and Lewis simply weren’t cut out for hours of boredom and not having a concrete purpose to wake up to in the morning. They quickly started selling a few products out of their sprawling Florida home as a way to pass the time. Soon, their fledgling new company, which they were now calling Jeunesse Global, had taken off. Just a few weeks after taking the plunge into retirement, Ray and Lewis were once again spending 70 hours per week building a business.
From the start, Jeunesse was focused on finding niche markets and creating both messaging and branding that was highly differentiated from competing brands. One of the ways in which they have accomplished this is through the creation of the Youth Enhancement System, a basket of more than a dozen of the company’s finest and most groundbreaking products.
The Youth Enhancement System is a cohesive lineup of products that allows customers to get all of their health and beauty requirements taken care of in one comprehensive package. The Youth Enhancement System contains groundbreaking products, like the company’s Luminesce anti-aging lotion and its AM PM Essentials productivity-enhancing multivitamin. It can help nearly anyone start feeling younger and healthier within just a few minutes.
Through the Youth Enhancement System, Jeunesse Global is helping bring about Generation Young, the first generation in history with the tools to stave off aging indefinitely.

End Citizens United has confirmed a list of 20 political “targets” for the upcoming 2018 mid-term elections. The group, a PAC (political action committee) is founded on the principle of eliminating “big-money” from wielding influence in elections.
With the release of its Senators and Congressional Representatives who have previously benefited through special interest funding, End Citizens United has singled out those termed “the worst of the worst in Congress” by executive director Tiffany Muller.
With the subsequent announcement by Speaker of the House Paul Ryan that he would not seek re-election the list of names is presently reduced to 19. Listed below are the incumbents dubbed “Big Money 20” by End Citizens United. They are considered to have favored big money special interests over their own constituents. This may have been in one or more ways — by accepting large donations, by supporting legislation that favored their big-money benefactors, or by opposing campaign reform.
Like End Citizens United on Facebook
Leaving Speaker Ryan off the list, these are the 19 Republican incumbents who End Citizens United will work to defeat in the upcoming elections:
Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas
Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada
Rep. Mike Bishop of Michigan
Rep. Rod Blum of Iowa
Rep. Mike Bost of Illinois
Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado
Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen of New Jersey
Rep. Ryan Costello of Pennsylvania
Rep. Duncan Hunter of California
Rep. Will Hurd of Texas
Rep. Darrell Issa of California
Rep. Tom MacArthur of New Jersey
Rep. Pat Meehan of Pennsylvania
Rep. Erik Paulsen of Minnesota
Rep. Rob Pittenger of North Carolina
Rep. Dana Rohrbacher of California
Rep. Peter Roskam of Illinois
Rep. Claudia Tenney of New York
Rep. Mimi Walters of California
To support opposition candidates End Citizens United is estimating it will need to raise $35 million. Adhering to the strictures of a traditional political action committee, no donation will not exceed $5,000.
We need to treat the cause not just the symptoms. Our campaign finance system has loopholes that allows countries like Russia to meddle in our elections. https://t.co/Y7d1g560ns

OSI Group is a food processing corporation based outside of Chicago, IL. They are the largest privately owned company in their industry and provide food products, processing, and research and development needs to customers in both food service and retail industries. OSI got their start in 1909 when a young, enterprising German immigrant named Otto Kolschowsky opened a family-run meat market and butcher shop in what would become the suburbs of Chicago. From those humble beginnings, Kolschowsky first put the company on the map in 1955 when he went into business as the sole provider of Roy Kroc’s burgeoning McDonald’s corporation, and from there moved into new markets offering customers great products. In 1975 Sheldon Lavin took over as CEO and under his leadership has expanded OSI to international shores with more than 50 facilities located in 16 countries. They have more than earned the title as one of America’s top 100 companies in the food industry.
Lavin has helped guide OSI Group to success, but their real strength comes from the core values they possess and through the implementation of those values, what they can offer customers. First of the values is the commitment made to the customers. OSI is not as interested in having customers to serve as they are in building long-lasting business relationships with the companies they supply. To achieve this OSI strives to not only supply customers with the very best quality products that can be produced, but also to work with customers in developing their own unique products, but more on this in a moment. The second value OSI Group holds to is its commitment to its employees. This is and always has been a family oriented company. Kolschowski, Lavin, and the rest of the executives promote this idea, and it comes through again and again. On multiple occasions OSI Group has won awards for safety in the workplace, they are generous to their employees and expect concerns or questions to be raised to keep the organization in check. These two core values of commitments to the customer and employee ensure that the company operates with integrity and respect.
In order to help customers of all shapes and sizes have products that are unique to their own brands, OSI Group has a well-funded research and development department to take customer concepts down the line from design to production and ending with logistics. They have special test kitchens in every major facility and a staff that is innovative and can create solutions to unique problems.

After Dr. Clay Siegall graduated from high school he attended the University of Maryland. He had a strong interest in animals and so he pursued a degree in zoology. During this time a family member was diagnosed with cancer. He saw first hand that oftentimes the treatment of cancer is pretty crude and can be just as damaging as cancer itself. His family member almost died from the chemotherapy. He decided that there had to be a better way to treat cancer and that he would be part of the solution.
Dr. Clay Siegall went on to attend George Washington University in Washington D.C. He graduated with a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in genetics in 1988. His first professional position after graduating was at that National Cancer Institute which is part of the National Institutes of Health. He says that while he worked here, from 1988 to 1991, it was partially an educational experience and partly professional research and development. He says he learned a lot during his three years of working for the federal government.
Bristol-Myers Squibb hired him and he moved to Washington State to work at their Pharmaceutical Research Institute. He worked there until 1997 but he chaffed working in their research and development department. He says that he had two issues, one of which was a lack of autonomy. He also really didn’t like that he had a number of patents but he didn’t personally see anything out of them. The executives of Bristol-Myers made bank off his patents but he saw nothing of any material benefit.
In response, Dr. Clay Siegall partnered with a business associate and launched Seattle Genetics. He chose to stay in the Seattle area and so opened his office in a suburb called Bothell. His company works to cure cancer using antibody drug conjugates which have shown enormous potential in targeting individual cancerous cells while not harming healthy cells at all.
In order to make money, Dr. Clay Siegall says that his company releases their own proprietary drugs. They also license their technology to other companies in order to bring in additional income so that they can continue their research and pay employees.
