Kate Hudson’s Fabletics About to Hammer Amazon

Amazon has not been concerned about any other clothing retailer catching them in the crowded fashion e-commerce market. The reason being is that Amazon has been sitting so far in front is because they are making 20 percent of all the sales in this market. Now all of a sudden we have to add Kate Hudson’s Fabletics into this conversation. In a little less than three years, we see Kate Hudson’s Fabletics emerging from the pack in the clothing niche and selling nearly $250 million in women’s workout clothing and active-wear.

 

The success of this unique athleisure brand may come as a surprise, especially to those in this niche who have been struggling just to tread water all these years. Hudson says she can credit the success of the brand to only two sales components, her membership program dedicated to loyal customers, and her reverse showrooming sales technique. Just take a look for yourself the next time you are in a Fabletics retail store in a local mall. There are women all over that store searching for the newest releases in yoga pants, trying on all the active-wear in the store, and even taking time to fill out the Fabletics lifestyle quiz.

 

In order for Kate Hudson’s Fabletics to be able to sustain the growth that it is going to take to catch Amazon, they need to really dazzle this fashion e-commerce market. That is exactly what they are doing to their loyal customers. Each time a member is in the store, regardless how busy they are, each piece of workout apparel that they try ion will be instantly uploaded to their online account. That means they can continue the shopping experience when it is convenient for them. Since they know exactly how these pieces fit, the concern of sizing is gone, they are free to go impulse shopping fr as long as they like.

 

All of Kate Hudson’s Fabletics members enjoy things like the help of a personal shopping assistant, discounted pricing on women’s active-wear in the stores, and free shipping for any order that is placed in the e-commerce site. This is a huge contrast to how members at Amazon are being treated, where they get a discount on shipping but have to pay Amazon $79 each year for that perk. Hudson’s Fabletics is about to change the way these women shop online, and they could be growing faster than they even anticipated.

Karl Heideck’s Analysis On Why Philadelphia’s New Salary Law Won’t Be Halted

A new law was passed on 23rd of January 2017 in Philadelphia prohibiting employers in the private sector from inquiring into applicant’s salary histories. It was signed into law by the City’s mayor, Jim Kenney. Philadelphia’s Chamber of Commerce went to court to challenge the law. The legal grounds were that it was unconstitutional and should, therefore, be declared null and void. The law was intended to close the wage gap between the males and females in Pennsylvania by barring employers from:
ü Independently obtaining an individual’s previous salary data without his or her knowledge or permission
ü Asking for information of job applicants regarding their previous salaries
ü Blackmailing prospects to reveal their former salaries to gain employment
ü Punishing and retaliating candidates who decline to disclose their salary histories

It will impact employers outside Philadelphia’s headquarters. It will also affect anyone doing business in Philly, directly or through third parties. The fines for violating the law stand at $2,000 for all the parties. The Chamber of Commerce received leave from the court to amend its complaint. It is, therefore, natural that the Chamber will file a new suit, but the complainant will have to identify the companies that ask for such information during interviews. The development could harm their PR. Many business leaders have shown a belief in wage-equality and intended to support the principles behind the laws. The most important part is the implementation by the enterprises and complying with the hiring and governance structures.

End Citizens United Works to Combat Big Money in Politics

End Citizens United, a non profit organization developed to financially and politically oppose the 2015 Supreme Court ruling allowing corporations to advertise for documentaries produced during political campaigns, has recently become the topic of media speculation for its participation in advocacy efforts. The organization’s founder, Ron Barber, recently discussed ways in which American citizens could actively participate in the process of getting the Citizens United ruling overturned and effectively restoring the electoral process to the American people.

 

History

End Citizens United was developed in 2015 as a direct response to the ruling of the Supreme Court in the Citizens United vs. Federal Election Committee case. Citizens United is a conservative non-profit organization that produces a wide variety of right wing documentaries and literature in an effort to influence voters during election seasons and high ranking news cycles. The Citizens United Supreme Court case revolved around the conservative non-profit’s release of an anti-Clinton documentary detailing the criminal activities of both Bill and Hillary Clinton. The legality of the development of the documentary was not in question in this case. The Federal Election Committee argued that End Citizens United should not be allowed to promote their documentary and other political material because of the corporate status of the organizations. Since the development of Campaign Reform Act of 2012, corporations had received very strict regulations on their contributions to the campaigns of various politicians. The court ruling of the Citizens United case effectively limited the power of the Campaign Reform Act and maintained that corporations could market their own products even when the products were politically associated. End Citizens United was developed as a tool to ensure that limits be placed on campaign contributors. It is vital to this organization that average citizens receive the same level of power in the electoral process that large corporations do, if not more.

 

Affiliated Programs and Impact

Since its inception in 2015, End Citizens United has actively engaged big corporations and lobbyists to end what they see as the detrimental effect of the Citizens United Supreme Court Ruling. End Citizens United has employed several notable politicians and government workers to expand the mission of the organization. Democrats like Jessica Vanden, Christopher Massicotte, Lanae Erikson, and Simone Ward all work to promote the welfare of American citizens with regard to the United States electoral process. To date, the political organization has become responsible for the initiation of several advocacy programs and legislative measures aimed at the destruction of corporate involvement in the electoral college. The company’s founder related the expression that it is incredibly evil for American corporations to be considered as individuals in the process which chooses the people who will govern them and the American people.

Keeping in mind these other companies have been around for so much longer such as Burt’s Bees, shows just how popular this Costco marketed product has become. EOS was co-founded by entrepreneur Craig Dubitsky and Jonathan Teller in 2009, with Sanjiv Mehra joining the team shortly thereafter. All-though Dubitsky helped get EOS where it is today, the company is doing just fine with co-founders Mehra and Teller as Dubitsky had stepped down to create his company known as Hello.

Securus Technologies Helps People Take A Proactive Approach to Fighting Crime

While we are still in the stage of solving and punishing crimes, there are actually forms of technology in development for preventing crimes. Securus technologies is especially working hard on the development of such technology. For one thing, people are realizing the importance of being proactive. One of the best things to be able to do is prevent crimes. With Securus Technologies, they will be able to achieve this level of justice. For one thing, they have the ability to track all of the phone calls made from the inmates. This allows them to get information about who they are talking to.

 

One of the reasons that this is a good thing is that it enables crime prevention. Often times, inmates have connections to gangs on the outside. Therefore, they often call their gang members in order to talk about other things that need to be done. The officers use this information that is gained from the technology used to tap calls so that they will be able to figure out ways to make sure that any criminal activity is stopped. This goes a long way towards making the world a lot safer for citizens.

 

However, Securus goes a lot further than just preventing crime. They also try to make sure that the inmates are getting rehabilitated. In most cases, they are not going to be in prison for life. Therefore, it is important for them to learn some skills and take care of what they need to do for when they eventually get back out into the world. One thing that could happen for people who are in prison or other correctional facilities is that they could become so used to life in prison that they need to learn how to adapt back into the real world. This could be made easier for people with programs put in prisons.
