Estée Lauder stock has jumped more than 300% since Fabrizio Freda (on left) became CEO of the once family-run company. Next to him at the Waldorf Astoria in Shanghai in October (left to right): William P. Lauder, executive chairman; Leonard A. Lauder, chairman emeritus; Jane Lauder, board member and global president of Origins Darphin & Ojon; Ronald S. Lauder, chairman of Clinique; and Aerin Lauder, board member and founder of Aerin LLC.


There are places on earth so inhospitable that few non-natives can make them home: Commonwealth Bay, on the coast of Antarctica, where the frozen wind whips around at 150 miles an hour; the Sahel desert in Chad, where the dust storms almost never stop; Dallol, Ethiopia, where a break from the heat means a dip into the low 90s.
