George Soros, Trying To Help People towards a Better Future

George Soros is a name that has been echoing across countries as a man who has pioneered various political movements across the world. A hedge fund investor by profession, George has made quite an impact on the world of politics through this great involvement with political parties to try and shape the course of governments and justice in countries. When George was a young boy, he grew up in a part of Hungary that was under the rule of the Nazi’s which caused quite a problem for George’s family considering they were all practicing Jews at the time. It wasn’t long before George began to realize the repercussions of the political turmoil that was happening around him and all the political unrest that his country was facing. This was one of the main defining factors that led George on the path to helping people all over the world fight for justice.

Through his life, George has always tried his best to mitigate corrupt parties and prevent them from coming into power. George was also a large investor for the Democratic Party in 2004 when he was against President Bush and the Republican party’s ways. He invested almost $26M into the party for its presidential campaign and all the organizations they support. However, when those efforts turned out to be unfruitful, George decided to back away from the American Political scene and focus on his organizations and foundations which he built to help people.

In 2016, George Soros started an organization towards the aid of refugees and individuals coming from war-torn countries. The organization invested into these refugees business, especially the ones who were seeking exile in other European countries. The group benefited many refugee lives and helped them rebuild their careers and help their families out in this time of need.

George has been mentioned on the Forbes top lists for numerous years now; with the most recent one being him featured on the richest hedge fund investors lists. When George’s family has moved out of Hungary, to go to London, George enrolled in the London School of Economics, where he lay his foundations for what he would need when he would set up his company. When George came to New York, he began working on Wall Street where he invested in his first hedge fund which set him on the road to success.

In spite of deciding to stay away from the American Political Scene, George decided to re-enter and re-invest into the Democratic Party due to his allegiance to Hillary Clinton and his tremendous faith in her to lead the country in a preferable direction. Last year, George donated over $25M towards the Democratic Party and the numerous organizations they support. Read this story at Politico.com about George Soros.

TIDAL Surges, Backed By Desiree Perez

TIDAL, the streaming music service co-owned by top-tier recording artists, has seen major hits recently with albums by some of the co-owners, namely Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Rihanna. Since the third week of February 2017, the app has added a million trial members and charted its highest position in iTunes Store sales. Read interesting article on  m.tmz.com.

To cut costs, Tidal has de-emphasized an extensive catalog in favor of focusing on hot new releases. Its Tidal X live performance streaming, Tidal Rising emerging artists section, and Tidal Discovery, the curated section, will be the service’s main focal points moving forward.

See this related link.

The service owes its recent success, in part, to the behind-the-scenes moves of executive Desiree Perez. A business associate of Jay-Z for over 20 years, Perez’s background includes running SC Enterprises. With her husband, Juan “O.G.” Perez, Desiree Perez also runs Roc Sports Nation, the American sports management agency.  Hop over to hitsdailydouble.com.

With a reputation as a hard-as-brass negotiator, Desiree Perez played a critical role in Rihanna’s recent deal with Samsung. She also mediated the terms of Beyoncé’s Formation stadium tour. Ms. Perez forms part of Jay-Z’s inner Hova Circle along with Mr. Perez, Jana Fleischman, Chaka Pilgrim, Ty Ty Smith, and Jay Brown. Together, these talented executives manage the Roc Nation properties.

The streaming music market is a highly competitive one, and one in which major players Apple Music and Spotify dominate. Still, even swimming in this shark tank, Tidal manages to keep its head above the water, appealing to millennial music consumers.

Few artists have such a deep understanding of the business side of the music world as Jay-Z. Mr. Carter has consistently shown his superior skill in surrounding himself with high-performance execs. With Desiree Perez in his corner, Tidal can expect more success on the horizon and less of a hard knock life.  Read more articles, visit Dez’s tumblr.com.

NEW REFORMS IN THE AMERICAN CAMPAIGN FINANCE COURTESY OF END CITIZENS UNITED

Anyone who was keen enough during the period preceding the 2016 United States Presidential election would have noticed the ongoing concern about the huge amounts of money that went into supporting various candidates. This has been the trend since 2010 thanks to the Supreme Court’s decision in the End Citizens case. More black money cartels such as the Koch Brothers and other individual and corporation billionaires have flooded the United States politics with money which is interfering with the voice of the Americans. These billionaires are leading to the election of their own people who will support their personal agendas as opposed to representing the interest of the common American.

 

 

In March 2015, a few more concerned people among them Jessica Vanden Berg, Christopher Massicotte, Lanae Erickson and Ron Barber came up with a Political Action Committee (PAC) called End Citizens United. These four form the board of directors of End Citizens United and thus work with their staff to make most of the major decisions in the organization. The aim of this PAC is to create a campaign finance reform that will control the amount of funds channeled into campaigns. The founders realized that the only way to achieve this reform is supporting House and Senate leaders who will push for it once they are elected. These are mainly Democratic candidates since most Republicans in Congress oppose the reverse of the End Citizens decision.

 

 

During the month of August, 2015, End Citizens United endorsed 11 Democratic candidates among them Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado and Sen. Russ Feingold of Wisconsin. In their support for these candidates in the 2016 elections, End Citizens United funded their television adverts, polling and direct mailers. One could wonder how an organization that had been only operation for one and a half years managed to pull this off. The organization has many grass root supporters; people who would want the US elections reformed. These supporters fund the organization. By the time of its official launch in August 2015, it had managed to raise over $2 million. It anticipated to raise up to $30 million by the 2016 election. By then the group had received about 136,000 donations.

 

 

End Citizens United also seeks to use grassroots membership to show political power on this issue. They have developed a petition that demands congress to pass reforms on the End Citizens United decision. Over 325,000 people had signed the petition during the official launch. Also, more were going to sign before the elections especially given the collaboration of End Citizens United and “Ready for Hillary”. The reforms will restore the long gone accountability, transparency and sanity surrounding money in US politics. The actions of the End Citizens United show that through unity, Americans can bring about the change that reflects their common interest and reduce influence of a few billionaires.

EOS is a lip balm company that has relatively recently given the lip balm world a major overhaul. It’s been a big force in the lip balm universe for roughly seven years now. People began seeing EOS’ distinctive lip balms in stores everywhere slowly but surely. These products were available in Walmart, Target and Walgreens locations. They became tough for shoppers to ignore. People responded extremely well to them. Top national beauty writers couldn’t resist them, either. They frequently waxed poetic about EOS’ exciting and diverse flavors. Grapefruit and honeydew lip balms were particularly beloved. Celebrities also took the cue. People noticed big stars like Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus making use of EOS lip balm products.

EOS’ (Evolution of Smooth) items were all the rage. Readers saw them grace the pages of popular magazines. EOS quickly became a major phenomenon. The company’s leadership division is only now discussing its impressive business approach. EOS’ seemingly meteoric rise to fame has been quite a mystery until now. EOS’ team members established an enormous $250 million business that doesn’t look to be slowing down any time in the near future.

Burt’s Bees is actually the only brand that beats EOS. Although Blistex and Chapstick have been popular lip balm manufacturers for many decades, EOS has actually managed to surpass both of them, interestingly enough. EOS is a lip balm giant.
