The Rise and Rise of George Soros

George Soros, the politically inclined philanthropist who spent a whopping $27 million to support Democratic candidates in 2004, has resurfaced. Soros had taken a low profile since 2004 as he cut back on donations for the Democratic candidate in the US elections.

The billionaire investor is back with a bang. He has donated more than $25 million towards Clinton and other Democratic candidates for campaigns. They are hopeful that Soros, the man who amassed a mind-boggling $24.9 billion via risky currency businesses, to provide even more financial support as the D-day for the US election approaches.

On the back of his 25-year long relationship, the 85-year-old New Yorker who traces his roots to Hungary planned to attend the Democratic Convention that would have him watch Clinton give an acceptance speech for the presidential nomination. However, according to a close associate, George Soros had to cancel the trip to attend to more pressing matters relating to the European economic situation.

There is no love lost between George and the Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, whom he regards with suspicion, as does most Americans. He has led the way for other affluent benefactors who are already dreaming about a possible Clinton presidency. The result has been a massive financial mobilization for the Democrats, which has helped them, put together a well-oiled campaign machine.

The New York-based philanthropist is keen on a Clinton victory. Federal Electoral Commission (FEC) reports indicate that Soros has contributed $3 million towards a project called Immigrant Voters Win which aims to bring on board many Hispanic voters to help Clinton clinch victory in swing states. He has also pumped $5 million into a nonprofit group, the Voting Rights Trust, to fight conservative tendencies of restrictive voting.

According to Vachon, a close associate of Soros, a further 2 million has been channeled to America Votes, a campaign mobilization groups that keep its benefactors secret. George, the political philanthropist, has also given out another $1 million to several state-based groups that are not required by law to publish details of their sponsors.

George Soros has not only been directing his charity activities towards politics alone. He has made immense contributions on the international front, donating more than $13 billion to nonprofit organizations that look into the state of human rights and democratic process in the whole of Eastern Europe. He has also made philanthropic inroads into the health and education sector in the US and throughout the world.

Not even his son, Jonathan Soros, can explain his father’s sudden surge in political spending. However, George Soros’ recent writing about Trump may shed some light on the issue. The philanthropist suggests that to effectively fight terrorism, voters would do well to avoid the Republican presidential nominee whose approach to the problem was less than satisfactory.

There is a consensus that Soros has a soft spot for Hillary Clinton, something he may not have felt for the outgoing president. This could explain his long absence from the political front. However, not that Clinton is running for the presidency on the Democratic ticket, it is his time to flex his financial muscles.

Gooee Looking To Create A Seamless Retail Experience

Retailers are already advertising to consumers through smart phone apps and are able to save them money and deliver what the consumer wants while at the same time investing less money into their marketing initiatives. By tracking what people are buying and anticipating what they might want in the future, they are able to offer them deals they will actually want and in turn buy the product being offered. Consumers also respond to this because they are getting a deal on what they really value, want, and need.

Using these apps as hubs of information that actually work for vendors and consumers is begging the question, what comes next? If consumers are loving this individualized coupon experience made seamless through their smart phones, how can it be made better? The answer lies in light bulbs. Though this sounds absurd, hear us out.

Smart light bulbs created by Gooee, have the ability to connect to WiFi and Bluetooth and they can also detect human movement. When installed in a retail setting, the bulbs can detect when a customer is in a shopping aisle, and then connect wirelessly to their smart phones, delivering real time coupons and deals on the products that are sitting right in front of them on that particular shelf or rack. This enables consumers to have an individualized coupon service right at their fingertips without having to sort through weekly ads and information they don’t need. Seeing this on the horizon, retailers are exited about implementing Gooee LED bulbs.

Help With An Event

If you feel like planning an event is simply too much work or you find that you want to spend more time with the guests than you do in planning, consider hiring an event planner. This is someone who can ensure that every aspect of the event gets taken care of, such as the food, decorations and locating the venue. There are a few things that you want to keep in mind when it comes to hiring an event planner. First, think about what you need help with. Make a list of the objectives to give to the planner. If you only need help with minor details, then make sure the planner knows that assistance might not be needed with everything. This can sometimes cut back on the costs that are associated with hiring an event planner.

 

Look at the qualifications of the planner. You don’t want to hire someone who is just getting started in the business if there are a lot of intricate details that you need worked out. However, you don’t necessarily want someone who will be too expensive to afford. Do a little research by reading reviews that are posted online or talking to someone you know who has recently dealt with an event planner. You can find out how each person deals with stressful situations and how the planner communicates with you before and during the event. Give the planner as many details about the event as possible, such as how many people you plan to invite, the age of the guests and the guest of honor and any specific details that you want included.

 

Twenty Three Layers is one of the event planning companies in NYC that takes care of every detail for you. All you need to do is give the company your information and let the dedicated staff do the rest. The company is among the event planners in NYC to work with vendors across the world, such as musicians and decorating companies, in order to deliver the best results possible

Waiakea Water

The water you drink and put in to your body as a direct effect on your health. Not all drinking waters are created equal, and in fact many drinking waters can actually be dangerous to your health, while others can really boost up the health of the human body with all of the natural minerals found in the water.

Some waters are alkaline, meaning they keep the body basic instead of acidic. The more basic the body, the less susceptible the body is to developing conditions like cancer. Other waters like tap water can contain chemical additives that can be harmful to human health, like fluoride and chlorine.

Some filtered waters, like the water found in the kitchen that is filtered through a plastic filtration system is not the same as the water that is filtered through volcanic sediments. According to Specialty Food, Waiakea water is filtered through volcanic sediments meaning that it has the chance to pick up mineral sediments that are actually very healthy for human consumption.

The sediments dissolved in the water include silica which is famous for giving the water it’s silky taste. Other dissolved minerals essential to human health include potassium, calcium, iron, and magnesium.

Forbes said that the water coming from Waiakea spring takes very little time for it to get to it’s bottling source from it’s origin. This means that the water’s vintage is very young so the mineral taste in the water is there, but not extremely detectable in it’s taste.

The water is therefore crisp and light tasting, and it doesn’t overwhelm the palate. This water is great for drinking on it’s own, or for consuming with any type of meal because it is so refreshing and balanced. Because the water spends so little time traveling from it’s origin to it’s bottling destination, it is also very low in unhealthy Nitrates.

Nitrates are collected as the water moves through the soils and picks up these unhealthy additives that are existent in the earth due to human pollution. The low level of Nitrates in the water combined with it’s healthy mineral composition make it an ideal water for drinking every day.

In addition to this water being very healthy to consume, it is also bottled eco consciously using recycled bottles, and at a facility that that uses 1/3 renewable energy sources. The material used to make the bottles also uses 90% less carbon emissions than traditional plastic bottles and the bottles are BPA free.
