The Rising of Women in The Financial World

During the year 2007 the United States experienced one of the most devastating financial disasters since the Great Depression in the 1930’s. I personally believe that this recent disaster was far more terrifying and lengthy than what had occurred within the time period of the great depression. For me, it was because of the thousands of foreclosed houses and the extremely high rate of unemployment that lead me to believe that this could just possibly be the most negative impacting crisis to have ever occured in our country. When the financial world took a turn for the worst, it was people such as Helane Morrison that stood out and made an impact on the financial crisis that was taking place in America.

Helane Morrison graduated from not only Journalism school at Northwestern University, but also the University of California Berkley School of law. To me, that makes for an amazing woman and an even better financial advocate. After Helane had proven herself worthy with her hands on experience as a clerk for the US Court of Appeals, she moved onto private practices, business ligations, internal cooperate investigations, SEC matters and many other suits that I believe helped Helane bring out her professional natural abilities. In some of these practices Helane was even given full partnership with the firm.

Currently, Helane volunteers for the American Bar Association where she sits on the hedge fund committee. Helane’s position at the Association is to ensure that the managers of hedge fund are providing all the necessary information as all other investment managers would for their practices. A lot of managers used to take advantage of the laid back rules of the hedge fund, which I find to be rather appalling as anyone should want to protect their practice, not put it at risk for selfish decisions. Helane currently works at Hall Capital as their Chief Compliance Officer.

Genetic Analysis Confirmed The Presence Of The Zika Virus In Women With Microcephaly Babies According To Dr. Sergio Cortes

The Zika virus has been getting a lot of attention lately. Brazil has put up a red flag and countries around the world are reacting to it. The issue, according to the top medical doctor in Brazil, is the relationship between the Zika virus and microcephaly. Microcephaly is a serious disease that damages brain functions, and the disease has an unusual impact on the appearance of babies with the condition. Dr. Cortes thinks there is a direct link between the two disorders, but the doctor also said that more research is needed to prove that theory scientifically.

Dr. Cortes and his medical team on Linked In have been dealing with an outbreak of the Zika virus since April 2015. There were a few cases reported on sergiocortesoficial in previous years, but the virus spread at an accelerated rate in the Northeast region of Brazil in 2015. The rapid spread of the virus prompted the Brazilian government to increase their Aedes aegypti mosquito breeding ground eradication program in that area. Brazil uses a chemical developed by a Japanese firm to alter the genetic process in the mosquitoes. The chemical, Pyriproxyfen, is a lethal mixture that is harmful to humans.

The extent of the damage Pyriproxyfen can do to humans in unknown, but some medical professionals in Brazil and Argentina believe that larvicide is responsible for the microcephaly cases. There is no evidence that Pyriproxyfen is the cause, but the doctors say, of the more than 400 cases of microcephaly reported, only 17 of the mothers had symptoms of the Zika virus. It is true that the virus did turn up in the amniotic fluid of two women during pregnancy, but that is not enough proof to list the Zika virus as the main cause of the condition.

Dr. Cortes has more information about the relationship between the Zika virus and microcephaly on his official website. Cortes thinks that more information is needed to link the two disorders scientifically, because scientists don’t understand the biological link between the virus and the deadly baby disease.

Professor Jim Whitworth, at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said that although the current research cannot prove the link, the study does strengthen the body of evidence that the Zika virus is responsible for the microcephaly outbreak.

Dr. Cortes has more information on his LinkedIn page. His Facebook page also has Zika virus information. And on Twitter, there are tweets by Cortes about the virus.

George Soros’ Predictions That The EU Will Fail

The European Union has done wonders for Europe’s economy and global economic system. However, this groundbreaking organization might become defunct very soon. There are currently problems with this organization, due to economic problems in Europe. There have been a series of events that have strained the EU. Greece’s economy has struggled, and this is causing problems with the economy of the Union as a whole. The Ukrainian economy also is floundering. This is putting a further strain on everything. England has an economy that is doing very well, but they may not be part of the EU any longer. Also, there’s a war that’s taking place in Syria. This war is causing massive droves of individuals to have to flee the country. All of these people are looking for a safe place to land, and that safe place is often in Europe. Due to this, Europe has seen an unprecedented surge of immigrants from Syria. This surge of people flooding in is beyond what Europe is able to handle economically. George Soros has recently been speaking about what he thinks is going to happen. It is not a good forecast for the stability of the EU. He feels strongly that the European Union could easily not survive these crises. The European Union simply has no experience in dealing with multiple crises of this severity at the same time.
Angela Merkel first began working on legislation to get the Syrian immigrants into the European Union. She holds an extremely lofty position as the Chancellor of Germany. She has a lot of influence in the politics of the European Union. Her lofty position enabled her to have a large impact on the political process of changing the laws to bring in the immigrants. George Soros and Angela Merkel both believe that she has to get legislation through to slow the flow of refugees. George Soros and Angela Merkel both are in agreement that this could save the EU from the fate Soros has forecasted.

If the collapse does happen, George Soros believes this could have severely negative impacts on the global economy. He believes that it would undermine trade between European countries. Of course, this would have disastrous impacts. Furthermore, it is likely that these disastrous impacts would spread even beyond Europe. This combined with the struggles the EU is already dealing with could cause very severe economic turmoil in Europe.

Soap Stars Team up for “Queen of Drama” TV Reality Series

The new show Queen of Drama premiered on April 26, 2015, and follows a few of daytime and primetime well known soap stars who have teamed up to form a new production company. The company was created to help these actors to take control of their careers by producing and developing a new pilot for television.

The five principal actors are Vanessa Marcil, who is best recognized for her roles on General Hospital and Vegas. Hunter Tylo from the Guiding Light. Lindsay Hartley from Passions, All my Children, and Days of Our Lives. Chrystee Pharris from General Hospital and Passons, and Crystal Hunt from Guiding Light and One Life to Live.

After the first three episodes aired, reviewers agreed the show offered plenty of drama and was very entertaining. To round off the cast of characters, they have also brought in an actress that can pull the cast together and lead. This is where Donna Mills comes in acting as a slightly similar version of her role on Knots Landing.

In Episode one, Instagram superstar Crystal Hunt, who is playing herself asks Donna Mills to assist the actors with creating a new primetime TV drama series. It is clear by the conclusion of episode one that not all the casts can agree on the same visual sense for what they want out of the show. By episode three, Crystal seems to have taken over the spotlight of the show as the cast attends the Sue Wong’s Fashion Show. Both Vaness and Hunter have to rein in their anger during the show.

Overall the first three episodes, Queen of Drama seems to live up to its title. The cast including Crystal Hunt really provides an entertaining reality show where they portray themselves as they struggle to find a niche for the show. Although the actors do play themselves, there is an air of togetherness among the cast, and a well soft style script that is easy for viewers to follow .

IMDb makes it pretty clear Crystal first became noted as a formidable actress when she was on Guiding light as a 17 year old troubled teen. She then went on to play a devious stripper on daytime soap One Life to Live. Hunt’s career started when she was only 2 years old where she participated in pageants and her talent of course was acting. Over her childhood years, she appeared in many commercials, anti drug promotional commercials until landing the role of Lizzie Spaulding on the Guiding Light.  Crystal’s body of work on Metacritic continues to grow, and she continues to be a stand out superstar of the industry at large.  Crystal Hunt’s facebook page, which she opened for fans, has more information about this popular actress.  Otherwise you can see acting reels, and even a cool interview with Crystal, on YouTube.

Friends In Real Life From Talking On Skout

It is truly amazing how much one learns about oneself while trying to meet people through social media and other applications. I use this one application to meet people, and I must admit that I have met some extraordinary people through it. It has some interesting features about it. Also, you can make all kinds of relationships through using it. Do you want to know what application I’m referring to? It’s called Skout, and it’s the newest secret in online dating and social media. It’s a fun way to meet people, and you don’t have to meet them in person or have a romantic relationship, but that option is always there for you if you choose to go through with it.

Learning About Yourself While Meeting Other People

When I first set up my profile on Skout, I made it quickly, and I didn’t put much thought towards what it was saying. I started reading other peoples’ profiles almost immediately, and I formed my own opinion of what should be written in a profile, what information is most interesting to me will be interesting to other people. I started writing my Skout profile to fit my personality. I put emoticons in it sometimes if I am feeling a certain way. I update my Skout profile frequently. Sometimes I’ll use lyrics of a favorite song or poem. It’s a great way to attract friends, which is what Skout is about for me.

Different Reasons To Use Skout

Everyone who uses Skout might have their own reason for using it because people are looking for different people to enter their lives. Some people on Skout are looking for romantic relationships, so if you are looking for friends, then you should make that clear immediately. I tend to talk to people who live near me because I like to think that we will one day meet. If that is for you, then you can change that in the search option in Skout.

Skout conducted a survey recently that was published in PR Newswire that showed some compelling statistics about what types of people use Skout. It was astonishing to read that 75 percent of people already have friends on the internet. Even more shocking was that a high percentage of people wanted to meet their friends in real life.

Investment Tips from Brad Reifler

The investment world is dominated by the 1 percenters in America as Brad Reifler notes from Twitter. The ones who strategize and invest in funds isn’t available for people with less capital like hedge and commodity funds. If you’re in the 99 percent of Americans who want to invest, but think you can’t—think again.

In a recent Reuters article, Brad Reifler, the Founder and CEO of Forefront Capital, offered advice for the 99 percenters who want to invest. Reifler understands the desire to grow money investing. In fact he’s seen both sides. He began his investment career in 1982 when he started Reifler Trading Corporation. Later, in 1995 he founded Pali Capital. Currently, he founded Forefront Management Group, LLC, a small boutique investing firm.

With all his success, he’s seen the other side of investing. Years ago he invested in a 529 college plan for his children. By the time they reached college age, the investment was worthless. He actually lost money on the investment. Another life lesson he learned was when his father-in-law wanted him to invest his entire life savings. Reifler soon discovered how limited the investment options were for people in the 99 percent.

CrunchBase indicates how Reifler has worked hard to change how the majority of people in America invest their money. For years his focus was on the accredited investor making $200,000 a year and a net worth of at least $1 million—excluding their house. He’s now focused on non-accredited investors by specifically planning an investment plan designed for them.

Any investor looking for a safe returning with a good investment should follow these tips:

• Be careful about how you invest your money. It’s important to think about expenses, risks and charges associated with each investment. In fact, take inventory of your assets, then create goals.
• Focus on the safety of your money.

• Know and trust your investment manager. You have to know who is taking care of your investments to actually know how well they are doing.

• Know why you’re investing in the first place. This means you must consider you investment objective. Always be careful with how much money you invest. Be on the lookout too. If something is working, add to it. However, continue to diversify.

Unfortunately for those in the 99 percent who want to invest, they are often overlooked. They are considered too high risk to help. Reifler knows that’s wrong. The investment world has room for everyone—regardless of income level. The tips he gives majority of the 99 percenters will help jumpstart their investments and grow them in the long- and short-term.

Why Being On Wikipedia Can Benefit Your Brand

Wikipedia is known for being the place to learn just about anything and everything. The site is home to millions of content and articles, and it’s the place to search online if you need factual content on anything. The rankings for the site has shot up over the years by improving and further developing the rankings of website owners and brands. This is why so many people want to be on the site.

The problem that most people have to deal with regarding Wikipedia is that more than 90 percent of the Wiki writers are all men. This makes it incredibly easier to be a slightly more sexist place to be in. Less women write on this site, making it more than possible that the site most likely has more male views that oppose women’s rights and thoughts on different subjects. While there is little opinion added in to most articles, there is still a tendency for the writers and staff on Wikipedia to undermine the woman’s role in content and completely taking on their male views. This is why staff writers who are women are trying to reach out to gaining more female Wikipedia writers to become volunteer writers. The additional information and new articles on women’s rights is also going to help get more women to join in.

It’s true that Wikipedia is still a growing platform despite the 44,000+ writers already on the site and the millions of content already produced on the site. It is vital to consider using the site and having your own page if you want to further develop your brand or individual presence. Wikipedia is the place to be to grow online since it helps amp up your search engine marketing while also improving the authority you have over people and the world.

The one thing you will love about Wikipedia is that they have all volunteers, so you can actually hire Wiki writers to make a Wikipedia page for you and have them submit it to Wiki for approval. For example, Get Your Wiki is the best writing service out there. They have tons of Wiki writers for hire who have written content that have been accepted by the entire company in the past, proving that they do know what they are doing. Get Your Wiki has been in this industry for many years and they understand every aspect of business via Wikipedia.

State Secretary of Health Sergio Cortes Surveys The Capivari River Flood In Xerém

More than 255 people lost their homes, and one person died during the Capivari River flood in Xerém. Xerém is in the district of Duque de Caxias, 31 miles north of Rio de Janeiro. More than 8 inches of rain fell in 24 hours in the mountainous region, and a state of alert is in effect because of the mudslides that have killed hundreds of people in the past, according to State Secretary of Health Sergio Cortes.

Dr. Sergio Cortes visited the region immediately after the tragic event, and he urged people to donate food, and especially water to the survivors of the flood. The area is in desperate need of drinking water, according to Dr. Cortes. But along with the clean water issue, there is a mounting garbage issue. Garbage is accumulating, and that is creating a breeding ground for infections. Water-borne diseases could create another major crisis for the residents of Xerém, according to Cortes.

The Cortes medical team is passing out antibiotics, and the group is trying to disinfect the water supply in order to prevent an outbreak of dengue, leptospirosis, or the Zika virus. Those diseases are spread by mosquitoes. The team is also training the residents, so they become aware of the symptoms of those diseases, according to a recent post by

Clean water is a priority. The Cortes team is using more than 10,000 bottles of sodium hypochlorite to disinfect the water in the city. City leaders want another calamity kit sent to the region according to the Extra article, and Dr. Cortes believes the city needs one. The first kit is helping but a second kit will certainly compliment the effects of the first kit, according to wikipedia. The city does have a hydration center in place, and it can serve more than 300 people.

This is not the first flood to hit the Xerém region. Because of the city’s location, natural disasters happen in the area frequently. Xerém has a history of adjusting to the natural disasters that occur in the area. But citizens of Xerém always appreciate help from their fellow countrymen.

Dr. Cortes and his team are doing all they can to stop the spread of disease in the flooded area, but donations are needed to get the city back to normal. Donors can read about Dr. Cortes on his LinkedIn page. But a hundreds of people follow him on Twitter.
