George Soros’ Opinion on How to End the Asylum Problem

George Soros is a sharp entrepreneur and philanthropist. He is the founder of the Soros Fund Management LLC, which is a very profitable business. He witnessed his birth country being occupied by the Nazi and how the Battle of Budapest made his Jewish family fear for their lives. George Soros’ political stand of being a capitalist was shaped by his childhood experiences. Soros attended the London School of Economics and was a student to Karl Popper, the philosopher.

Mr. George Soros moved to New York to commence his profession in finance. He was very ambitious and could not be satisfied with working for other people, and he, therefore, founded the Soros Fund Management, which has since been very successful. Mr. Soros has been involved in charity activities since the 1970s, and George Soros established the Open Society Foundation to endorse political activities, social and economic transformations.

George Soros published an article on the Marketwatch about a solution to the asylum problem. He suggested that the fact of the European Union not having a joint asylum policy had transformed the growing number of refugees from a controllable problem to a political crisis. Member states focus more on their individual interests thus substantially affecting asylum seekers. The EU should have a comprehensive emergency response strategy that goes beyond the borders of Europe to manage asylum-seeker numbers and the absorption capacity of Europe. It is less costly to manage possible asylum seekers close to their current location.

Syria is currently in a crisis, and the Syrian population needs to be given priority, but without forgetting other refugees. The European plan should be supplemented by a worldwide response that would deal with the refugee problem and distribute the burden over many states under the power of the United Nations

The comprehensive plan had six sections according to George Soros’ opinion. First, the EU needed to admit at least a million refugees per annum by distributing them equitably, to have a predictable future. The asylum-seekers should also be offered 15,000 euros each by the EU to cover their basic needs in the first two years.

Secondly, sufficient funding must be provided to support 4 million refugees living in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. The EU should help in creating jobs for the refugees by setting conducive trading environments that can attract investors. An annual 8 to 10 billion euros pledge to the frontline nations, should be made by the EU with the rest being contributed by the US and the rest of the world to support refugees in Europe.

One Asylum and Migration Agency should be built by the EU, and eventually, a solitary EU border guard to do away with the current incompetent 28 independent asylum systems. The agency would make a joint rule for entrepreneurship and employment. An efficient return strategy that respects human rights will be created for refugees who do not need asylum.

Proper means of taking asylum-seekers to their destination countries from Greece and Italy should be set up to calm the panic. Safe avenues should then be spread to frontline areas to reduce the number of migrants who cross the Mediterranean Sea unsafely. There should also be global criteria of treating migrants and refugees made from the EU’s financial and operational arrangements.

The EU should finally mobilize private institutions such as churches, NGOs, and businesses to sponsor the programs of settling asylum-seekers. This program will require adequate funding, human and IT capabilities to balance the refugees and benefactors. An authentic European policy should be created to end avoidable panic and human suffering.

There Is No Vaccine For The Viral Infections That Plague More Than 100 Countries A Year According To Medical Advisor Sergio Cortes

The viruses carried by the Aedes aegypti mosquito have a lot in common, according to one of Brazil’s top medical advisors, Dr. Sergio Cortes. The viruses that infect millions of Brazilians every year usually produce symptoms that last 2-7 days after an incubation period of 4-10 days, according to a Dr. Cortes website post. The two most common viruses, dengue and chikungunya cause a fever that can reach 104°F, and the severe headache, pain behind the eyes, and nausea and vomiting can last for days. Some infected people usually complain that their swollen glands and joint and muscle aches and itchy rash seem to last longer than 7 days.

In 2013, Dr. Cortes went to Xerém, Duque de Caxias to see how dengue spreads after a major flood. Xerém was destroyed by the flood, and the Aedes aegypti mosquito was hard at work breeding in the pools of water that were everywhere. According to a post by Extra.Globo.com, State Ministry of Health Director Cortes and his medical team helped stop the spread of the virus by providing antibiotics and bottles of sodium hypochlorite to the survivors.

In 2015, Dr. Cortes was the acting Chief Medical Officer and Executive Director of Rede D’Or São Luiz in Rio de Janeiro, according to a Cruncbase.com post. Dr. Cortes was asked to visit the Northeastern region by the Ministry of Health to assess reports that the Zika virus was spreading in areas around the city of Recife. Dr. Cortes and an emergency medical team discovered a small outbreak of a virus that hadn’t been a health issue in Brazil before 2015. Not much was known about the Zika virus. Some local doctors were misdiagnosing the virus. They thought it was the dengue virus because the symptoms appeared to be dengue symptoms. The doctors in that region knew that severe dengue can cause deadly complications due to fluid accumulation, plasma leaking and respiratory distress.

But Dr. Cortes had done research on the Zika virus and knew there was no vaccine available. Cortes knew that the people around Recife were being infected with Zika instead of dengue by the Ades aegypti mosquito and there wasn’t a cure. Dr. Cortes sent a tweet that the Zika virus was related to a spike in the number of microcephaly cases in the same area. The threat of babies being born with underdeveloped brains and skulls was turning into reality in that region of Brazil. More than 745 confirmed cases of microcephaly were reported from August 2015 to February 2016.

Igor Cornelsen: Brazilian Stock Market Executive

Igor Cornelsen currently works with the Bainbridge Group that deals with investing in the stock exchange. They also deal with foreign exchange markets and commodity trading. He is an avid investor and had been a career banker for a long time before retiring. He is renowned in the financial market all over the world. However, he established himself as an expert in the financial markets back at his home in Brazil. He rose to the position of being a prominent top banker in the industry. During this time, Igor Cornelsen managed some of the biggest banks in the country. In doing so, he was also indirectly responsible for maintaining a substantial percentage of the nation’s entire gross economy.

At the moment, he lives his retirement in South Florida a location that complements well his golfing hobby that he relishes. However, he dabbles back into the investment world from time to time to give advice and guide newbies into the market. He also offers financial advice to people through different media platforms. When he is not playing golf, Igor consults for the banking industry as well as stock market investments. He performs these tasks with ease and eloquence Owing to the vast experience that he draws from working in financial institutions throughout his entire career.

According to interviews that were given to news outlets like Brand Yourself and DisQus, Igor indicates that having an understanding of the market needs in a sound economy and the forecasted outlook is crucial in weathering the turbulent storms. The advice to banks that want to weather the storm is to narrow their focus and understand the dynamics of the market they are operating. There are few pointers given the number of big player banks that matter and the consideration of the China factor. The trade relations with China are inartistically tied as a stronger economy in China means better prices for raw materials being sourced from the country.

Apart from advising banks on where to put their money for better returns and growth in the long term, Igor also encourages individual and corporate investors in the manner they should navigate the financial, stock and commodity markets. He gives three specific pointers to the need to invest in passive incomes that are seen to come from stock and commodities markets. For the starters, there is no direct involvement on the part of the owner. Second, if the right choices are made, there is an assured continuous flow of income. Lastly, there are minimal resources that are required in the beginning.
