George Soros Contributes to Clinton Campaign

George Soros is an incredibly wealthy financier – his fortune is in the billions – who has long been a substantial contributor to liberal causes in general and the Democratic Party in the United States in particular. Politico has an interesting article on their website that details how he has recently made enormous contributions to the Clinton campaign on opensocietyfoundations.org. In fact, he’s given about 25 million to the campaign and to related causes, and this number is expected to rise as it gets closer to election day.

Soros appears to be motivated to give in this campaign because of two factors: his longstanding support of Hillary Clinton and his contempt for Trump, who has taken stances on issues important to Soros including religion and immigration that are very much in contrast to those of Soros himself. Because Soros is highly regraded by other wealthy liberal donors, his giving will likely inspire others to give as well. Trump, by contrast, has been ineffective in getting financial support from the wealthy conservatives who usually donate to the Republican Party and is pretty much financing his own campaign.

George Soros’ contributions are his first major donations since his record-breaking financial efforts towards defeating George W. Bush in the presidential election of 2004. In that presidential race, Soros was highly motivated to help Kerry try to defeat Bush because he was horrified by the U.S. invasion of Iraq and even went so far as to compare Bush to Hitler. After Bush won the election, the Hungarian-born billionaire transferred his contributions to broader liberal causes on nybooks.com as opposed to giving to single candidates.

George Soros has made statements to the effect that he doesn’t think it’s right for any one individual, including himself, to be able to throw too much financial weight around in a single election. However, as a result of his horror at the idea of a Trump presidency, he seems to have gotten over his distaste for massive donations in order to help Clinton.

Andy Wirth – Why Lake Tahoe Communities Love Him?

Andy Wirth is not your typical CEO that you often see on the front cover of Ski and outdoor magazines. Instead, he is a person who has worked his entire life in the famous Ski areas around Lake Tahoe region as a park ranger, manager and a high-profile executive. Perhaps, his love for the community enabled him to become a household name in the region.

According to Andy, his father moved to the area when he joined the ski patrol, in 1974. Six years later, he met Andy’s mom. The relationship developed into a strong family bond, which encourages Andy to serve the place he loved so dearly. Moving his way up the corporate ladder, Andy Wirth became the CEO of the world-famous Ski Valley Holdings. However, those who have known Andy, he is still the sort of down-to-earth guy that they met years ago in the Ski slopes of the area.

To deliver high expectations, Andy has crafted a number of community plans around Squaw Valley Ski area. These include expansion projects for the resort and several community initiatives. In fact, when a private group recently tried to incorporate the town, Andy spent cash from his own pocket to oppose the incorporation. Andy believed that incorporation would deprive the town of its identity by restricting corporation with other nearby communities in the Lake Tahoe region.

Just months earlier, he also announced one of the largest Gondola rides in North America, which will connect the base of Squaw Valley Resort and Alpine Meadows. The Gondola will help alleviate traffic congestion in the area. In the future, Andy has more plans to enable different Lake Tahoe communities to come together.

Perhaps, this is among the primary reasons, why he has been selected as a Chairman of Reno-Tahoe Regional Air Services. Already, Andy With has been instrumental in developing air services in several areas between Colorado and Quebec. He also played a pivotal role in initiating Jet Blue services between NYC and Reno-Tahoe. It seems that his appointment as the CEO of the air service is a perfect choice because there are few individuals who have contributed so much to the area as Andy.

Talk Fusion Is Video Chat For The New Generation

Bob Dylan once wrote that times are changing and that is most certainly the case here in 2016. It is truly amazing what technology can do and how it can change people’s lives in so many ways. It makes communication easier for people. Communication is something that a lot of people struggle with and have a tough time wrapping their head around. However, Talk Fusion makes it simpler for people. There is video chat, which allows someone to chat with someone face-to-face on a video format. It allows others to see the expressions of the people they are speaking to and really find out what is going on with them. A lot of people can’t hide their feelings. This allows people to see the true side of someone they might want to do business with in the future.

That is why Bob Reina started Talk Fusion. He wanted people to be able to start their own business and be more independent. Everyone loves independence and they love the chance to be in charge. It is not a control thing or anything of that sort. It is just feeling more comfortable in their skin and feeling like they don’t have to look over their shoulders or watch their back.

Talk Fusion also has video newsletters, which allows people to chat with a number of people from all over the world at one time. These types of changes are why they won the the 2016 Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award from Technology Marketing Corporation, according to the following article: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/talk-fusion-video-chat-wins-2016-communications-solutions-product-of-the-year-award-300315095.html?tc=eml_cleartime.

This is their second award from the company and as the article points out, they are considered one of the best when it comes to media. They have seen a ton of various products and they know what makes them stand out and what is different. They like different and they like companies that are not settling or just resting on their laurels. Once a company becomes successful, it can be easy to become comfortable since it has worked. However, in order to stay successful, they have to keep revamping the product.

Jim Hunt Could Make Anyone, Even You, A Millionaire

 

That statement may sound crazy, but Jim Hunt of VTA Publications claims that trading stocks is such an easy process that anyone could learn how to do it. Hunt has spent much of his career studying the stock market and learning the ins and outs of it, and he has many videos on YouTube about executing trades. Now, Hunt wants to show people just how easy it is to be a successful stock trader through two programs he’s setup. The programs are “Wealth Wave” and “Making Mum A Millionaire In Just 10 Trades.”, and news outlets have written extensively about both.

 

So how does anyone go about doing either of those two things? The wealth wave according to Jim Hunt, is what happens when a bear market comes. He explains how money is never really actually lost, but simply trades possession whenever losses come to stocks and other investment funds, and he says you can be on the receiving end when the wave of money trickles down to the other side, and the trick is just two phone calls. For his goal to make his mother a millionaire, Hunt says its all about just picking good stocks to buy and trade, and it only takes 10 trades to become a millionaire.

VTA Publications, the company that Jim Hunt runs is a source for investors and startup entrepreneurs to go to when they’re ready to make big financial decisions. The company publishes books that teach people how to read stock charts, or how to make trades in the futures and commodities markets, or how to plan their retirement as taken from the bible. But VTA Publications is also connected with some of the smartest business minds in the world, and they host seminars in which successful entrepreneurs come to give business advice. All of the materials, including the recorded seminars can be ordered by anyone in the world and found at http://www.vtapublications.co.uk.
