Cameron Diaz Receives a Spiritual Gift Providing Healing and Self-Balance


We were so honored to send a David Weitzman jewelry creation called the Genesa Crystal Necklace to the very talented Cameron Diaz.  We all know that Cameron is all about health and well being, so this jewelry perfectly reflects everything she embraces in her own life. 

The Genesa Crystal is actually a spherical cube octahedron. The idea of the Genesa Crystal was developed in the 1950's by Dr. Derald Langham, an agricultural geneticist. He found that thecrystal reflects the cellular pattern of an embryonic living organism:

"Genesa is the coded matrix of your own life force and is directly related to the living energy moving in spirals in all forms of growth, development, and change. Genesa is a 13-dimensionalprocess involving step-in-to crystals of simple geometrical forms similar to those that living energies spiral through in natural growth patterns. Through precise, meaningful movement within their energysms (life force fields), they learn to harmonize physical, emotional, mental and vital aspects of living and tune into their greater selves". - Derald G. Langham, Ph.D.

The engraving translation on the Genesa crystal is: "Three are paths of the soul - man, liberty,light," taken from the emerald tablet of Thoth.

The Genesa can purify any environment and can be used to amplify the Energy of the stone
inside (In the models with the stone bead). The Genesa crystal is an excellent tool for healing
since the structure draws in energy, cleanses it, balances it, positively charges it and radiates it
back out. It can be used not just as a pendant but also as an energy purifier for the house and

We know Cameron will love her necklace and all of the positive energy it will bring to her life!

Great Female Inventors of the Automotive World

Article provided by Eve Pearce - Writer and Journalist

 Female inventors have been making their mark in the automotive industry since long before the likes of Henry Ford burst onto the scene in the early twentieth century. Little-known to the majority of people, women were responsible for many vehicle features that remain essential to the modern day driving experience. Who knew that windscreen wipers were invented by a woman? In fact, Mary Anderson, from Alabama, applied for a patent in 1903 after she noticed drivers in New York having to open their windows in order to see during the rain. Less than 15 years later, windscreen wipers were standard on most vehicles all over the world.

Another female inventor was Helen Blair Bartlett, who dreamed up the simple invention of a spark plug. Then there was Marion Donovan, who was the first person to think of installing a cup-holder in a vehicle.

Growing influence
Fast-forward to the present day, and the influence of women in the automotive world is particularly pertinent. At General Motors, one of the world’s largest automotive manufacturers, Mary Barra is tipped to run the company when current chief executive, Dan Akerson, steps down. Also, in Formula One, Maria de Villota became the world’s first female test driver, after racing company, Marussia, signed her up.

What about car design though? Claiming the invention or design of an entire vehicle is something women have not yet been able to mark history with. In 2004, they came close; Volvo unveiled a concept car at the Geneva Motor Show that was “designed by women for women”. However, the car never made production and was thought by the female public, at the time, as being nothing more than a marketing gimmick.

High Gear, high impact

Now things might be about to change. A car with real street cred – the 2013 Ford Mustang GT High Gear SEMA Car – has been designed by a woman. Jennifer Seely won a nationwide competition ran by Ford to design the first ever SEMA Mustang. Inspired by jewellery, fashion and architecture, Seely’s Mustang is an invention like no other in the automotive industry. Known as ‘High Gear’, the car was designed to stimulate all senses by creating a fusion of power and luxury. It features satin black body paint, Rosegold chrome accents and quilted suede seats. However, the car doesn’t just feature cosmetic advances; it also comes with state of the art modifications to its engine, under carriage, drive train and sound system.

The build of the concept car is taking place throughout the summer by a team of female experts at the headquarters of Source Interlink Media in El Segundo, California, USA. The build will involve assembling all car parts, modifying the vehicle and carrying out the paint job. Anyone looking to buy cars on finance may have a long wait for this vehicle, though; the finished design is not expected to go into mass production. However, the car is instead going to be put to public auction to raise money for the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund.

The finished car will be unveiled at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, Nevada, which takes place between the 30th October and the 2nd November.

Female-focused businesses
It is actions like the above that are moving the automotive industry forward for women. There are already a host of other services and business inventions in the industry that have been tailored to women, for example, there are businesses offering female car care training after consistent surveys have found that women feel patronised in garages and car show rooms, and are leaving car servicing and buying duties to men. There are also a whole host of female-specific car loan companies and vehicle insurers in existence.  Women looking for guaranteed car finance can also expect to receive tailored deals through specially-formed companies, as the industry seeks to make the automotive world as accessible for women as it is for men. Men aren’t born with a car gene; however they have always had more access and exposure to cars, perhaps through working on the family cars with their dads in the garage.

This current generation of female automotive inventors and entrepreneurs has a duty to inspire the entire population and take advantage of the many opportunities that are available to them in this sector. It is these influential female inventors that will go on to pave the way for greater equality and opportunity for the next generation of women looking to make their mark on the automotive industry.

The Growing Influence of Female Inventors must be Recognized

Back in March this year, the National Women's Business Council released data that suggested a significant increase in female inventors in the USA in 2010, and that this number has doubled since 1990. 

The data showed that female inventors accounted for around 18 per cent of the total number of issued patents and trademarks in the country in 2010 - a 35 per cent increase on the previous year. The total number of patents issued to women in 2010 was around 25,000, compared with around 17,000 in 2009. Significantly, the study also found that women received a third of the total number of trademarks awarded to individuals. The NWBC said that, although not all of the patents and trademarks awarded developed into commercial products, they did indicate that more women were becoming entrepreneurs and were choosing starting their own businesses over working for large corporate companies. 
National Women's Business Council spokeswoman, Donna James, confirmed at the time: "An increase in patent ownership may indicate growth in women-owned companies."

Women grow in STEM
Fast forward to July this year and it is apparent that not only is the overall number of patents awarded to women increasing dramatically; it also appears that women are  becoming increasingly prominent in industries that have always been dominated by men. The STEM industries (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), which see the largest number of patent applications, are now home for many pioneering female inventors, entrepreneurs and leaders. A recent report in technology journal,, looked into how it was becoming more commonplace for female inventors to make their mark in industries such as computing and technology. Hack Manhattan, which is a "hackerspace" meeting for people interested in collaborating on software programming and hardware writing, has previously consisted mainly of male members. However, the group is seeing an influx of female inventors keen to aquire funding and insurance to share their ideas and achievements. 

Mood-reflecting clothing 
One such member of Hack Manhattan, Crystal Butler, is one of the creators of an innovative new game called Pong. Pong is controlled solely through the power of the mind; users wear a headset that can detect their brains' activities and can apply them to the aims of the game through analyzing computer data. Crystal joined the Hack Manhattan community to not only share ideas, but also to showcase her own invention - wearable electronics. At present, she is working on a  clothing project that lights up and displays different colors and patterns that are dependent on the wearer's mood. Her collection includes an LED studded belt and a T shirt. These are hooked to a headset that detects brainwaves. The waves are then fed to the electronics in the clothing, which adapt colour and patterns accordingly.  

Groups for 'tech girls'
Not only is the number of women in entrepreneurial technology groups increasingly, but the number of groups specifically catering for women is on the rise. Txchnologist lists several organizations that have recently been created as support networks for those female inventors working within the STEM fields. Girls Who Code is one that particularly stands out, as it has recognised the future empowerment of women in the STEM entrepreneurial field. Aimed at encouraging 13 to 17 year old girls to pursue opportunities in engineering and technology, Girls Who Code "has developed a new model for computer science education, pairing intensive instruction in robotics, web design and mobile development with high-touch mentorship led by the industry's top female developers and entrepreneurs."

Creating opportunities for women
While the data released by the National Women's Business Council represents a huge step forward for female inventors, groups such as Girls Who Code recognise that the country has a long way to go in terms of ensuring that female STEM inventors have adequate training and opportunities in place in order to become equal to their male counterparts. The group claims that by 2018, there will be 1.4 million computer science jobs available. However, US universities are expected to only produce enough computing graduates to fill just 29 per cent of these jobs and less than 14% of these computing degrees are awarded to women. The group also claims that technology companies with women on their management teams have a 34% higher return on investment. An increasing number of businesswomen are taking on these board level positions as a result of their management success. Many are then going that step further; women, like men, are seeing their jobs as a personal investment are and buying shares in their organisations. The level of personal investment among women in business is fast growing and the country needs to take note.

The conclusion to draw from these recent studies, figures and statistics is that the influence of women innovators is drastically increasing - perhaps at a faster rate than the country is ready for. The country now has a duty to play catch up with this new generation of female inventors and to ensure that adequate opportunities for them are in place.
