Brad Reifler and the Forefront Capital recently announced its latest initiative, the […]
Cortes and government officials are hoping for the best, but they are expecting the worst when it comes to the spread of diseases such as Dengue, Chickenpox, Hepatitis, and issues with diarrhea. Dengue can be a big issue after a flood because there are large amounts of accumulated garbage that are cleared away. Garbage can be a huge attraction for mosquitoes and since Brazil has many Dengue carrying mosquitoes, it is obvious why the health department is concerned. Since there are many individuals that are living with family or in shelters because of the flood, the concern about the spread of communicable disease is also very high. In order to prevent the spread of leptospirosis the government has given out 3000 antibiotic pills to local shelters and aid organizations that are working in these infected areas.
Since water is essential to health, it is important for the residents of Xerém to have safe drinking water. Water sources have been contaminated after the flood, and for that reason the state is giving out water disinfectant kits to individuals that are in need. They have already been able to deliver over 10,000 kits. Even though there have already been much aid delivered to the people of Xerém, there is still much that individuals can do to help. Cortes is asking those individuals that want to give aid, to try to donate bottles of water. Cortes wants to help individuals by forming different relief teams. These are teams that will be deployed in times of disaster. They will be able to identify those people that are showing signs of disease. Cortes continues to try to come up with methods to control disease proliferation after natural disasters in order to better serve the communities in Brazil.
Prior to that, he had been sponsoring kids in India through Plan International but with a son with autism, he got an urge to do something better in helping out other kids with the condition as well. In his thinking process, he managed to meet Snoop Dogg and his passion to help became even bigger only that this time round, he felt that he needed to help through organizing musical concerts for charity.
Shortly after his meeting with the superstar, he started brainstorming about how such a concert would be held. Through his wide network of friends from different sectors of the entertainment industry, Autism Rocks was able to stage its first charity concert in 2014. Since the first one, it has held a few others that have proved successful and that have helped boost the autism research kitty.
He plans that in the future, the concert will be making even more money and helping in its goal to fund autism research all over the world. He also foresees Autism Rocks compiling a joint celebrities album by various artistes who donate a track each that would in itself, sell millions of copies and raise a lot of money in the process.
Sanjay Shah is a risk taker. Many only know his success story but they do not know his struggle to get where he is. He first of all went to medical school and studied medicine. After graduation, he felt that he was not cut out for the career and chose accounting instead.
He started his accounting career by working for major banks and in the financial crisis of 2008, he was left redundant and in the desperation to get a stable income, he stated Solo Capital. He managed to grow it and five years later, he had managed to grow it to have offices in London, the US and Dubai and with a personal net-worth of over $280 million.
Bass gained notoriety for his singular prediction of the 2008 financial crisis. Since then, Bass has gained further attention for what most of the economically literate community would call ridiculous and irresponsible decisions. Foremost on the list of Bass’s irreconcilable decisions is his support of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. Kirchner is a politician and lawyer in Argentina.
Another example of his questionable integrity is his defense of General Motors’ lack of functional airbags and power steering. Bass defended the company by proposing that the deceased victims were somehow to blame for the faulty vehicles.
Even with his questionable past, UsefulStooges shows that Kyle Bass continues to make predictions for the economic sector of the global community. The first recent catastrophe Bass noted is the Operation Carwash debacle which took place in Brazil. The government-run oil producer Petrobas was investigated for illegal inflation of prices. The profits of these activities are suspected to have been used for the personal use of executives as well as the corruption of the political Workers Party. Dom Philips of the Washington Post claims, “some of the biggest engineering and construction companies in Brazil – including the Camargo Correia group, OAS, UTC, and Queiroz Galvão,” were arrested in a single weekend. Bass said the situation in Brazil will not be resolved until all the corruption is removed from the system.
Bass further cited Vladimir Putin’s recent antics as problematic for the emerging markets. Putin has been involved in closed-door meetings with the leaders of Syria and the U.S. with unknown motives. Bass claims that Putin is involved in a “game of global chess.”
Also, China’s yuan is expected to undergo a depreciation within approximately one year, Bass claims, making him “very interested in the currency.”
Due to his decisions which are often considered irresponsible and self-serving, the motives and reliability of Bass’ predictions should be perpetually questioned.
In 2015, New York City real estate saw significant increases in both volume and prices, particularly among the higher-end of the market. As investors and owners look forward to 2016, there have been many predictions made that the forthcoming year could also be very prosperous, but it may be more challenging than in the recent past.
One factor that will influence the upcoming year is rising interest rates. As interest rates increase in 2016, it could limit the amount of people that will qualitf for a new home. As a result of this, it could take longer to get a deal to close and buyers may end up spending more time shopping around as they may find it harder to find a quality home that they will be able to afford.
Location will continue to make a major impact on the real estate market in 2016. Many experts believe that Brooklyn and Queens will see continued improvement in both the residential and commercial real estate markets. The high-end real estate market in Manhattan will also continue to appreciate as more luxury projects come on line.

Coffee has becoming increasingly not healthy in recent years. Companies have taken over the coffee industry and have started to infuse inferior coffee with all sorts of sugar, fats, creams and just about anything else you can think of. This is all designed to increase sales in a market that requires almost all of their foods and beverages to have a certain degree of sugar and fat. Coffee, in its purest form, is a healthy beverage. it is made by passing water through the grinds of coffee beans which in turn passes on the flavor of the bean into the water. It does not absorb any kind of fat and very little, if any calories. However, companies have taken this once healthy beverage and turned it into a calorie bomb for consumers. That is why Bernardo T. Chua, the owner and head of OrganoGold, has decided to take back coffee and offer up new, healthy coffee that consumers are sure to love and not find the need to dump calories back into the beverage.
Bernardo does many public speeches, and has spoken about how he has spent much of his life searching for new products that simply are not able to be found in other areas of the world. He has always wanted to share the fine products of other cultures with the United States. However, he has also seen the desired taste buds of consumers change. This is nothing new, but it does mean that he needs to compete with the large coffee chains who are topping coffee with whipped cream, chocolate and other sweets. Bernardo Chua has won many awards, and therefore understands the importance of maintaining the impeccable nature of a coffee’s true flavor while also making it enjoyable to consumers. It is why the brand new healthy coffee he is selling with OrganoGold is sure to make both true believes in original coffee and those with a bit of a sweet tooth enjoy the coffee.
There is no need to suffer a large intake of calories while drinking coffee. All that is necessary is finding the right kind of coffee. It is what Bernardo has been striving to provide and now he can. Follow Bernie on Twitter, and he also has a Facebook fan page.
Why You Need a Wikipedia Page
In the modern world, having and maintaining an online presence is critical to the success of an individual, business, or non-profit organization. Having a dedicated Wikipedia page can set you above the competition by providing a place where those interested can find current information. Trying to compete from an offline position is a severe disadvantage that prevents you or your company from reaching the top. Research from reliable sources, such as Forbes, indicates that an online presence will eventually replace the standard resume. It is also well-known that small businesses that don’t branch out into all aspects of the online community are not maximizing the possible benefits.
Creating a Wikipedia page, can be a challenging endeavor that detracts from the daily operation of your business. There is the technical aspect to learn. This includes the actual creation, formatting and presentation, as well as the behind the scenes work of uploading and linking. Visibility and search engine ranking will also need to be accounted for, or the page will never even be viewed by the public. Then you’ll need to worry about content monitoring and reputation protection to ensure the page isn’t attacked or subverted by malicious pranksters, referred to online as trolls. If all of that weren’t enough, the information displayed will also need to be regularly edited to keep it free from error, current and up to date. This is why so many people choose to hire Wikipedia writers to take out the headache of the process.
With so much to keep track of, it is usually best to let competent professionals, like the expert Wikipedia writing service, Get Your Wiki, handle the tedious task of creating and maintaining a Wikipedia page. They’ll take care of all the complicated details, so you can concentrate on your business. This is, by far, the preferred method of growing and maintaining an online presence.

There are some who believe that the economic crash which occurred in 2008 was worse than the Great Depression. Many people lost jobs, and the home market took a swift fall downward.
Since then, it would seem that the economy is on an uptick, and can only get better from here. However, billionaire international investor George Soros thinks differently.
During an economic forum that was in held in Sri Lanka, Soros predicted that the global marketplace is on the verge of a crash that will rival the one that happened in 2008. He bases much of his prediction upon the devaluation of the Chinese form of currency, the yuan. Because China is such a major player on the global scene, any changes in their economy yields effects that ripple throughout the world. Therefore, if their currency loses value, the entire global marketplace is affected.
George Soros believes that the Chinese yuan has decreased in value because of the change in production in that country. What was once an economy that was largely based on exporting manufactured products that were created within country lines, has become one that consumes more imports and is service based. Because production naturally has more value than consumption, Chinese currency has lost some of the value that it once had.
The prediction made by Soros should be taken seriously. He’s a man who has spent decades studying the global marketplace, learning which areas to invest in. As a result, he has amassed a great deal of wealth and knowledge.
If a crash is on the horizon, it’s best to take measures to protect yourself as soon as possible. Whether that involves cutting back on spending so that you produce more than you consume, or speaking with a financial professional, who can give you advice concerning where best to invest your money for the highest likelihood of return.
