Cancer research has been experiencing a revolution in a sense. The industry has been producing many more powerful medications than in years of the past. These technologically advanced facilities are placed all around the world, but the United States is home to one of the leaders in this exclusive class. Located in Bothell, Washington, is Seattle Genetics, and it epitomizes the term revolutionary science. The biotech company has 20 years under its belt, and it has grown each and every year. CEO Clay Siegall is the captain of the ship, and he has at least 30 years of experience in the game.
Siegall is probably one of the most celebrated and accomplished professionals in cancer research. The guy has a resume that others dream about having, but he has always remained humble. Siegall is a published author, he has written up to 70 publications, and he holds well-over 15 patents. Yes, this guy is the real deal, but he isn’t completely satisfied with his success. In some form or fashion, everyone has seen cancer’s effects or has dealt with cancer in one way or another. Siegall has introduced some very strict rules and regulations for conducting business. When it comes to a person’s health, time is of the essence. Copious amounts of information is being recorded at a consistent rate and scientific innovation is the catalyst. When these two components are combined, great things are about to transpire.
Seattle Genetics has many distribution deals thanks to Siegall because he was able to secure multiple deals with top pharmaceutical companies. Pfizer and Bayer are just two of the high-profile names. The old-guard of cancer research has come full-circle, and it has saved many lives. Siegall uses every aspect of his educational background in Zoology and from Genetics. Cancer may not be totally eradicated, but’s has definitely seen better days, which is a good thing.
Dr. Clay Siegall is leading the new wave of targeted cancer therapies. Perhaps a few years from now we will be looking at the Seattle Genetics founder and CEO as a legend in cancer treatment.

Seattle Genetics is responsible for developing the first FDA-approved antibody drug conjugate. Even more impressive it has partnered with multiple drug manufacturers to roll out its impressive string of drugs. Its partners includes prominent manufacturers such as Bayer and Genentech.
When Dr. Clay first founded Seattle Genetics many professionals thought it wouldn’t make it past the startup phase. Although Dr. Clay and Seattle Genetics exceeded those expectations those who doubted all those years ago had reason. At the time it was just a tiny startup with a small team of researchers. Despite its humble beginnings Dr. Clay always had big plans for the company’s future. Seattle Genetics is continually expanding its list of drugs while simultaneously adding more to the development pipeline.
Dr. Clay founded came up with the idea to start Seattle Genetics after a family member was diagnosed with cancer and he was unsatisfied with the chemotherapy treatment. Because of this it is his belief that systematic chemotherapy is soon to be outdated and targeted therapies are the future.
Before founding Seattle Genetics Dr. Clay Siegall he worked as a researcher at various medical organizations. he worked at the National Cancer Institute for 3 years before departing and joining Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceutical Research Institute.
He graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.S. in zoology and George Washington University where he studied genetics.

A whimsical and intensely pigmented cosmetic line by Lime Crime, founded by Doe Deere, brings to life the essence of fairy tales along with beauty.
Meet Doe Deere, CEO and founder of Lime Crime, who started off with a mission to revolutionize makeup from the way you shop for it, to the way it makes you feel.
Lime Crime hosts a vast display of everything from iridescent, bold lipsticks, to semi-permanent hair dye and eye shadows, just to name a few.
What sets the brand in a league of its own is it’s all certified, cruelty-free and vegan products. You can be bold with your beauty and confident that it’s safe for your body.
Doe Deere began her career as a budding fashion designer, studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. In 2004 she embarked on a DIY online fashion site which featured her own designs and clothing, which she showcased by modeling them herself.
Realizing how difficult it was to find bright, bold shades of cosmetics, Doe decided to formulate them herself. Combining her love of fairy tales, makeup, and imaginative, vivid colors she began creating her own makeup, sowing the seeds of what was to eventually become Lime Crime.
By posting online makeup tutorials and hosting giveaways for her makeup and accessories, she noticed the feedback was more remarkable and considerably larger than it was for her fashion designs.
Discovering her niche, she never looked back.
In 2008 Lime Crime was founded, with a unicorn for a mascot that represents individuality and rare beauty. Doe Deere came up with the name from her favorite color, bright green, and cosmetics so vivid and bold that wearing them might be considered a crime! Talk about a fun way to brand the products!
The vegan and cruelty free makeup offers loose, pigmented eye shadows, liquid to matte lipsticks, iridescent lip sticks, semi-permanent hair dye, pop on nails, and much more.
The fan base call themselves unicorns as well, since it takes bravery and confidence to rock bright, shimmery colors, that defies expectations. The colors are innovative and usually hard to come by, so being a unicorn definitely means you’re going to stand out from the rest.
Lime Crime is sold online and also available in retail stores in the U.S and worldwide.
When asked what trend excites her the most, Doe Deere says it’s definitely Generation Z and their immediate social media feedback that keeps her in the know. She believes Generation Z, the first fully digitized generation who grew up with the internet and all things digital, are going to change the future of online shopping.
Doe Deere’s accomplishments also include being named one of the Top Inspiring Female Entrepreneurs by Self-Made magazine. She is an avid supporter of women ran businesses and animal rescue operations.

James Larkin was a labor leader. He organized trade unions and led strikes all over Ireland. Not everybody agreed with his methods of doing this, but at the end of the day he got things done. He achieved great successes by just holding his ground and not allowing workers to be maltreated.
His life goals all started back in 1876 when Irish emmigrants bore him in slums. He grew up there and got accustomed to living in slums. He even went to school and worked to support his father. After James Larkin senior passed on the family did not crumble, because it already had an industrious man in their midst.
He married Elizabeth Brown in 1903 and in the same year became a member of the Irish Labour Party. He also joined the National Union of Dock Labourers in 1905 as a trade union organizer. He was sent on his first duty on behalf of the union to Ireland. His work was to organize workers. James Larkin did so and even arranged strikes. Most of their demands were met and requests accepted.

However, something went wrong within NUDL in 1907 when James Larkin and James Sexton rubbed shoulders. This disagreement led James Larkin to go against the union’s directives by conducting a workers’ organization in Dublin. He was released in the same year.
In 1912, the Irish Labour Party was formed. The two that were behind this great formation were James Larkin and James Connolly. The Irish Labor Party led the strike in Dublin that came to be known as the Dublin Lockout.
James Larkin decided to go to the United States of America in 1914. He was arrested six years later for criminal anarchy. Two years later, after spending an incomplete term in jail, he was relieved of the charges and deported to Ireland.
Ireland was his parents’ original homeland. That is also where James Larkin first worked on behalf of NUDL. Ireland is where he was laid to eternal rest after he passed on in the late January of 1947. The milestone achievements he had made, however, can never be reputed.
