Waiakea Water? Yes Please!

Waiakea water is naturally filtered by running through many layers of the Mauna Loa volcanic rock until it flows out at the base of the volcano. This natural process has made this water some of the purest on earth.

Ryan Emmons, the founder of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water, realized that the water was something special, since his family had started using it as a water source years ago. In fact, this volcanic water has been tested and scientists found a naturally perfect alkaline composition (7.8%) with a rich amount of electrolytes (calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium) and the ideal level of silica, perfect for keeping the body’s health at a maximum level of wellness. Silica has the extra benefit of reducing Alzheimer’s risks as we age.

Since Waiakea has been founded in 2012, sales of the water have grown more than 5,000 percent from bottling several thousand cases to over 120,000 cases yearly. The water is loved so much that Ryan and his team are building a new manufacturing facility in Hawaii to keep up with production. Waiakea can be found Wawa, Whole Food markets, and 300 other locations across the nation. Waiakea’s website offers several different home delivery plans that offer the convenience of delivery.

In keeping with the renewable spirit of the company, the founder goes as green as possible. The packaging for Waiakea is made from all recycled plastic with no BPA present. The Waiakea spring is a renewable resource and one of the purest sources of water on the planet. Waiakea also works with Pump Aid, an organization that brings water to villages and installs water pumps when appropriate so that villages can have their own renewable water source. To date, Waiakea donates 650 liters of water for every liter of water Waiakea sells. They committed to partnering with Pump Aid to keep the water and wells for villages supplied.

Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic water is worth a taste and the ethics of the company are enough to show some support. After all, everyone should drink to their health.

Amazon Might Be Seeing More of Kate Hudson’s Fabletics

In recent years, Amazon has enjoyed sitting all alone at the top of the fashion e-commerce market. When you are raking in nearly 20 percent of all the sales, despite there being thousands of clothing companies all fighting for the same customer, you don’t have too many competitors nipping at your heels. Things may be changing as far as who is fighting for that top spot, as Kate Hudson’s Fabletics begins to separate themselves from the pack. In a little over three years, we see that Kate Hudson’s Fabletics has already taken a huge bite out of Amazon’s lead, scoring $250 million in sales of women’s workout apparel.


If you were to sit Hudson down long enough to find out why her athleisure brand is gaining popularity, she will tell you it all comes down to the membership package she offers loyal customers and the sales technique call reverse showrooming. If you want to see how these two work in tandem, we need to begin our quest at the local mall inside one of the Fabletics retail shops. The women shopping in these stores are browsing the new releases hitting the racks, taking the Fabletics lifestyle quiz, even trying on every piece of active-wear that they can get their hands on.


To dominate the fashion e-commerce market, your website sales have to be out there. The reason Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is seeing online sales increase is because each customer that tries on a piece of clothing inside the mall stores will find that piece waiting for them in their online account. By uploading the workout apparel instantly to the customer’s account, it gives them the chance to continue shopping at their own pace in their own free time. What winds up happening is that these women go cray impulse shopping now because they already know how the pieces fit.


Your quiz answers allow your assistant to pick a piece of apparel each month they think the customer will love, then they add it to the cart for consideration. This is a shopping experience not to many clothing retailers are offering, and one reason that Amazon may find out sooner than later that they have some real competition for that top spot.

Jim Larkin

Between his birth on January 28, 1874 in Liverpool, England, and his death on January 30, 1947 in Dublin, Ireland, James Larkin lived a life dedicated to improving working conditions. He fought for temporary work for all unemployed, eight hour workdays, pensions at age 60, compulsory arbitration courts and the nationalization of all transit.

Having joined the National Union of Dock Labourers (NUDL), Larkin became a trade unionizer in 1905. NUDL sent him to Dublin. There, Larkin formed the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union, the basis of the modern Irish labor movement. Ten percent of workers were unionized. They believed the British-based unions had no regard for them.

The goal of the ITGWU was to establish an Irish-based union that included all industrial workers, both skilled and unskilled. Irish to the core, James Larkin aligned the union accordingly. Later, along with James Connolly, he created the Irish Labour Party. Read more: The Definite Biography of Big Jim Larkin

Larkin utilized a method of nonviolent strikes. In 1913, he led the Dublin Lockout, a strike that involved over 100,000 workers for almost eight months. The right to fair employment was established with this strike.

In Dublin, Larkin staged an antiwar demonstration when war broke out in 1924. Charging Irishmen to resist involvement, he wrote in the Irish Worker, “Stop at home. Arm for Ireland. Fight for Ireland and no other land.”’

Larkin left for the United States in October 1914. His aim was to both start a career as a public speaker and raise money to help fight against the British. He joined the Socialist Party of America and the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW). Larkin was convicted of communism and “criminal anarchy” and sent to Sing Sing in 1920. He was deported to Ireland in 1923.

Through the 1930s and 1940s, Larkin’s actions became moderate, concentrating on the WUI and angling for a seat on Dublin Corporation and solidifying his standing in the Irish Labour Party.

Throughout his life, James Larkin fought for what he believed was right for the Irish and for all workers, ultimately, by establishing the basis of the modern union.
