The European Union is Crumbling warns George Soros

George Soros is Europe’s most successful billionaires and business icon. Born in Budapest Hungary in August 1930, Soros attended the London school of economics. He obtained a bachelor’s degree in economics and a master of science in the same field. Also, he holds a BSc. and Masters in philosophy in the same institution. Soros holds dual citizenship for both Hungary and the United States.

He started his business career in the United States, where he rose to be the world’s notable economists. Also, George Soros’ prowess in investments, and writing of various books and articles on economics, politics and business earned him profound respect in the global economic platform. He is founder and chair of Soros Fund Management and Open Society Foundation. Additionally, Soros is a notable philanthropist; he established the Central European University. Furthermore, he financed the education of black students in South Africa during the apartheid regime.

European Economic Situation and the Refugee Crisis

George Soros’s vast experiences in economic and political issues are undoubtedly recognized globally. Consequently, he has addressed various forums and conferences on socio-political and economic problems. Additionally, he provides solutions to some critical economic issues that help in sustaining world top economies including China and the United States. Furthermore, Soros is seen as an economic prophet as he previously predicted various economic trends that came to pass.

In an interview with the CNBC, the top economist George Soros and investor warned of a crisis in the European Union that might lead to its collapse. He stated that the European Union has to move fast and inject a significant amount of money to solve the refugee problem. Also, in an essay in The New York Times, Soros warned of unfolding humanitarian crisis in Greece

To adequately address the problem, European leaders need sufficient funding. Spending large sums of money at the outset would allow them to respond more efficiently to the refugee crisis. Civil wars and terror groups on have pushed over a million immigrants from Africa and the Middle East to Europe in 2015. Refugees are driven by hope for a better life, peace and economic restoration in Europe.

Currently, a deal has been struck that will see people coming into Greece illegally being sent back to Turkey. It is when their asylum request is rejected. Also, for every person sent back to Turkey, the European Union will have to take in one refugee from Syria currently in Turkish camps. George Soros estimated the number of refugees that Europe can accommodate annually is up to 500,000. However, European countries should ensure that those genuinely seeking asylums would not be turned away.

For efficient operation on the crisis, the European Union requires an estimated £ 30 billion a year. Failure to fix the problem will cost the Union even more. It would be for example cause the collapse of the Schengen system on open internal borders among 26 European countries. To achieve the funding, Soros called for an amendment of Europe’s Multiannual Financial Framework and long-term financial plan to increase VAT contributions.

Brad Reifler And Forefront Capital Help Easter Seals

Brad Reifler and Forefront Capital want to make sure that veterans are cared for when they get home from war, and the Easter Seals Dixon Center is taking a huge gift from Forefront Capital. The partnership between the two has a total of $3 million involved, and the total that is given to the center depends on how much Forefront can do for the center. The initial donation is $3 million, and the center will earn more money with help from Forefront.

The Forefront Capital team wanted to invest in a charity, and they want to volunteer at the center when they can. The partnership is two companies coming together to help each other, and Forefront plans to help the veterans at the center with financial services and training. Vets who want to learn how to manage their money better can get help from Forefront, and vets who want to learn how to change jobs when they are discharged from the service can work with Forefront.

Forefront is giving their initial donation to help with improvements to the center, but they want to stay committed for a long time so that the partnership has real meaning. Brad Reifler is very interested in how veterans can be assisted once they are no longer in the service, and that extends a lot to the money that they have. There are a lot of veterans on pensions, but they do not know how to manage them. Brad wants to offer services that will show vets how to invest their money, and Brad wants to help vets get into the business if they are no longer in the military.

Forefront Capital is interested in helping regular people to get the help that they need when they want to be more involved in the community, and it helps veterans be stables when they need it. Families of veterans often spend a lot of money to stay well, and the money that Forefront Capital is offering will educate veterans on how to manage their money. There is even a special fund at Forefront that is perfect for the people who only have a small amount of money to spend. makes it abundantly clear Brad Reifler believes in helping people as much as he can with the resources that he has, and he has money to give for veterans. Veterans get a lot of services when they come to the Dixon Center, and Forefront Capital will make sure that veterans are helped with their money. Some of them could end up working in finances, and others could end up using education they get from Forefront to make more money with their pensions or settlements after their military service has been completed.  Follow Brad’s Twitter for further updates.

Human Rights Foundation Leader Warns Against Corrupt Government Using Socialism to Rise to Power

Bernie Sanders’s followers do not understand socialism, according to Thor Halvorssen. Halvorssen is a film maker who leads a group known as the Human Rights Foundation. Although he is politically liberal, he believes that socialist governments can be too easily abused by authoritarian despots.

Socialism is an economic system where the people own the means of production, and the Scandinavian governments of Northern Europe, like many other countries around the world, use a hybrid system that mixes elements of socialism and capitalism. Corporations and businesses are still privately owned, but high taxation rates support many social programs.

Halvorssen believes that countries with a long, stable tradition of democracy can benefit from socialist policies, but unstable countries, such as Venezuela, can be taken over by authoritarian despots. He believes that many Sanders supporters do not understand how easily socialism can be manipulated by unscrupulous leaders. Many dictators come into power promising to improve conditions for the people. Many of these leaders fail to live up to their promises after they win the president or the prime minister’s seat.

Despite his criticism of Sanders and his followers, he has no love for Hillary Clinton, the current Democratic front-runner. Clinton and her husband have a history of taking donations from foreign powers known for habitually violating human rights.

Halvorssen’s cousin currently resides in a Venezuelan jail, and he started the human rights foundation to raise awareness of human rights abuses. He made his comments on the Fox Business Network show The Intelligence Report early in March 2016. The host interrupted him briefly to insert her own definition of socialism, but Thor Halvorssen did not let her derail the conversation.

Doe Deere Wants You To Express Yourself

Before falling in line with popular fashion trends, consider the uniqueness of your own ideas and play with the clothing you have. Sometimes, the best outfits can be created from what seems like a silly expression. Unusual combinations can emerge from experimenting with your closet, and you can become a fashion expert like you have never imagined from seeing the value of being an individual.

Doe Deere is the creator of quickly rising cosmetic business, Lime Crime, and she is definitely a female entrepreneur with the power to stay relevant among the competition. In a world overran by trends, she has managed to stand out among the creatives. She likes to rock unnatural hair colors and compliments her intriguing style with bold and powerful make-up. Her personal experiences with designing faces have lead her to implementing her favorite looks among the Lime Crime products. Now, you can receive some direct advice from the fashionista herself.

  • Go Bold –
    Many designers say too much bold at one time can really overwhelm a look. Doe Deere begs to differ. When used correctly, bolds can intensify an outfit and add an extreme layer of depth that captures the attention of onlookers everywhere. Bolds can exaggerate on the details of a pattern or just enhance a washed out appearance.
  • Mix-and-Match
    Different patterns and colors can compliment each other surprisingly well in particular combinations.
  • Wear Socks
    Putting socks on with open-toed shoes is not off limits, and as a matter of fact, Doe Deere loves it. She thinks socks can make shoes feel more comfortable while also giving color to those hard to reach places. Plus, they keep you warm during the winter, so your favorite fashions can stay alive all year round. Slip on patterned or texture socks to really make an outfit zing. Leg warmers are also easy accessories.
  • Rock Neutrals
    There is more than one occasion to wear neutral tones like black, white, gray and beige. Pair neutrals with a bright item to have a contrasting splash of excitement. Although neutrals go great with bright hair, having bright hair does not require wearing neutral colors and neutral colors do not require having bright hair. The two can be combined to create dynamic outfits that provide areas of interest to the viewers eye.

Regardless of what anyone says, Doe Deere wants you to follow your heart in designing, so you can be the best you everyday. Although she has advice to offer, she does not want it to limit your fashion decisions in any way. Wear the quirkiest thing you can just to stand out, or follow the rules to blend in with the crowd. When you are reaching to the closet, change it up a little and add a special touch of your own personality.

YouTube Provides New Entertainment

One of the main advantages to YouTube is that it offers a diversity of entertainment. Almost anyone can become famous without having to go through some kind of industry. With YouTube, all people need is a little bit of creativity and some marketing skills. The fame that is achieved is slow unless they know how to create viral videos. However, the chances of making and releasing such a video is very small. Instead, most creators have to work hard in order to gain subscribers and continue to create content that people enjoy. The content can be entertaining, educational or both.

One YouTube marketer that has achieved fame is Wengie. Wengie runs a channel that is dedicated to style and beauty. She provides not only advice on how to find the greatest style, but also how to be creative and build one’s own style. She does not believe in the rigid standards that society often places on people when it comes to style and beauty. She is also very entertaining and creative in how she presents her videos. This has gained her the attention of not only her subscribers, but some interviewers who want to know more about her channel.

She could wear the same clothes every day and be about it. However, Wengie became interested in style and beauty at a young age and wanted to look for ways to bring out her own beauty. As she developed her channel, she didn’t stop at just the normal standards of beauty. She began to experiment more in order to find new looks that she could enjoy. Many people love the looks that she achieves as well as take inspiration from her example.
