Angelina Jolie Stuns Crowds with a Softer Side

The fashion industry can only keep its edge and glamor by changing each day. Fashionistas understand this rule, and adjust accordingly whether it be for the industry or their own personal interests. Regardless of the reason to demonstrate change, some celebrities just look fabulous in whatever it is they are wearing. Popsugar had some breaking news pertaining to Angelina Jolie’s new, soft, and feminine look.

The public often affiliates Jolie with having an edgy style. Often adding a smidge of class to and otherwise casual outfit, the star will add a suit jacket. Rarely wearing a lot of jewelry, and often rocking semi-masculine attire, the actress stuns crowds with her fashion statements. As she was spotted heading to dinner in London, however, she was seen wearing an outfit offering contrasting gray hues. Wearing a classy wool dress, peep-toe heels, a statement-making cashmere shawl, a monogrammed satchel, and diamond jewelry, she certainly looked elegant. Why the change, though? Could Jolie be turning over a new leaf? Did the restaurant have a dress code? Regardless, the public greatly enjoyed viewing Angelina in this new light.

As previously mentioned, the fashion industry is subject to common change. Some things, such as diamonds, are timeless, but others are out as quickly as they came to the market. Regularly updating your wardrobe is key in order to maintain a current, trendy status. Luckily, some fashion retailers and etailers have the public covered.

QNET: Positivity Is Possibility

These days, sadly, the world is filled with negative thoughts, negative energy, and too many negative people. All you have to do is read the comments section of any article or go on a message board, and you will see people leaving negative feedback on the even the most positive articles. It can be very depressing and sad when there is so much negativity in the world. Instead of lifting each other up, we are tearing each other down. We could all use a little kindness and it truly does go a long way. You can brighten someone’s day or put a smile on their face.

Just imagine how much better your day would be if you filled it with positive thoughts instead of negative ones. We all have bad days and we all have things happen to us that we would prefer didn’t happen. We wake up on the wrong side of the bed or everything turns out poorly for us. Because we are human beings, we make mistakes, screw up, and are going to have bad days. No one is immune to them. The folks at QNET are looking for ways to turn those bad days into good days.

Top Venezuelan Brewery Has To Shut Production Down

Those who love posting instagram pics of a good brew in Venezuela are going to want to stock up now, because Cerveceria Polar, the largest brewery in the country announced that it will halt its beer production. The company stated that it did not have a choice because they are short on inventory and their necessary ingredients will not arrive until April 29th. However, this is there last scheduled delivery at this moment.
Polar produces most of the beer that is consumed in Venezuela, but in order to continue it needs some vital ingredients that would have to be imported into the country such as barley and hops. Both of these crops cannot be grown in the climate of Venezuela, however, the government has not authorized the brewery to pay foreign suppliers.

An anonymous source at the brewery stated that he hopes that Polar will not have to stop all of their production lines, and that another brewery like Regional might offer them a loan on the much needed ingredients.

Expert Danilo Diaz added, that even if the government allows the brewery to pay a foreign company it would take at least four weeks for the ingredients to make it into the country. Polar also produces sauces and food, but they would lose billions if they are unable to continue to produce beer and malt beverages.

In Remembrance of CCMP Capital Pioneer Stephen Murray

The developmental history of CCMP Capital and that of its pioneer Stephen Murray are intertwined. It all began three decades ago when Mr. Murray started out a career as a credit trainee at Hannover Trust Co. in New York City. Before this bold career move, Stephen Murray attended the Boston College for a degree in Economics.

Five years later and armed with a Master’s degree from the Columbia Business School, Stephen Murray joined the leveraged group of the Hannover private equity. The firm would undergo several mergers and takeovers over the next decade ushering in the new millennium. The whole time, Stephen Murray moved up the ranks of administration and played a crucial part in negotiating the terms of the mergers.

The year 2005 marked the breakthrough for Stephen Murray whose administrative expertise saw him assume the executive buyout duties at Chase Capital Partners.

A year later, he founded CCMP Capital together with a few of his colleagues and took charge of the firm as its Chief Executive Officer. Stephen Murray’s tenure marked one of the most progressive periods for the company as they transacted huge business in the Healthcare, Energy, Consumer and Industrial sectors.

Stephen Murray individually molded the company policy that strategically invested between $100- 500 million in rewarding ventures across the specified sectors. Stephen Murray also gave back to the community through his involvement in philanthropic initiatives such as the Make-a-wish Foundation.

At one point he served on the Chairman’s Council of the Foundation. Murray also maintained a close relationship with the Boston College, who made him the vice-chairperson of the board of trustees.

According to Wikipedia, Stephen Murray’s social status and reputation also earned him appointments to the board at Pinnacle Foods, Warner Chilcott, Aramark and AMC Entertainment.

It’s also important to acknowledge that Stephen Murray left a legacy of a family man who dedicated a lot of his free time to his wife Tami Murray and their four lovely children. He was a community mobiliser and a role model to upcoming investment bankers and even the youth. His untimely demise left the CCMP Capital fraternity, family, and community at a huge loss.

However, it is the dedication, love and kind gestures that will act as guiding principles for all that he knew. Stephen Murray exited the stage with his legacy intact (read more about him on Crunchbase), and he will be remembered for many years to come.
