Sanjay Shah, who is the owner and founder of the charity, will be bringing on his longtime friends to the industry to help affiliate and assist in the fundraising events. Shah has known the brother duo since his college university days and believes they will bring immeasurable experience and expertise to the industry. Autism Rocks is a charity based out of London that helps aid in raising money for the cause and research of autism.

He was two years old at the time of his diagnosis, and Shah wanted to be able to help him as much as possible and in a sense “fix” it. After finding out that he just can’t fix it, he wanted to do the next best thing, which was to find out as much as possible about it and aid in the research.

Shah spent a number of years in the accounting industry before pursuing his passion to help with autism. He ended his accounting career when he started his own business, called Solo Capital. It’s a proprietary trading and investment firm that has grown tremendously in the past few years, allowing Shah to retire. His success with Solo Capital and his exceptional management team had lead him the freedom to continue his success with Autism Rocks.

George Soros And Others Team Up To Get More Votes For Democrats

There is starting to be a tug of war over immigrant voters. The New York Times covered the story. The article discussed how the remarks by many of the republican candidates, especially Donald Trump, have led to a move of immigrant voters. The democrats have won over millions of new votes.

One of the leaders in the effort to bring more voters to the liberal side is George Soros. Soros has been known to spend big in political campaigns. He is arguably the most generous liberal donor and has already committed 5 million dollars to a super PAC that will help convince immigrants to vote democrat. Soros has also committed another 5 million dollars to pay for a legal team to fight restrictive voting laws in several different states.

The main reason that Soros got behind this effort to increase the number of democrats voters was for two reasons. First he was shocked by the comments that were coming from various republican candidates about not allowing muslims to enter the country, and so on. The second reason was because democrat voters did not turn out in high numbers to the primaries and republican voters did. This is cause for major concern.

The article then continued by giving a little bit of background on George Soros. It described his upbringing in Budapest. He had lived under both communist and nazi regimes and, at the age of 17, he finally fled and pursued a career in finance. He studied and worked in London for a few years and then moved on to the United States. He worked in several New York City firms over the course of 2 decades and was very highly regarded by his colleagues. It was in the 1970s that Soros went out on his own with Soros Fund Management. He brought in returns for clients that had never been see before. One year he was even able to create a 100 percent return for himself and his clients. Because of all of the success he had in the financial world, he was able to leave it and pursue creating his own charity, the Open Society Foundations.

The Open Society Foundations aligns closely with why Soros wants to support democratic candidates. The charity concentrates on making societies more open and more accepting to outsiders and outside ideas. It also wants to increase the human rights that are offered around the world. He believes everyone should have all of the basic human rights and that all governments should be forced into transparency so that the people who elect officials know what the officials are working on.

It is a pretty well-known fact that the incorporation date for the Solo Capital company happened in 2011. Being a company with such a great reputation, it is easy to see how the company was able to earn so many nick names, such as Solo Capital UK and also Solo Capital Limited.

The Reality Of Queens Of Drama!

Lights, camera, action…..three little words that the cast of Queens of Drama have been hearing and craving for most of their lives. Queens of Drama was the brain child of several well known daytime and Primetime actresses, who seeing the writing on the wall, got together to create their own reality show. The cast actually work behind the scene as well as in front of the camera and spend their time fighting, gossiping about one another, and generally creating havoc with each others lives.

Queens of Drama is a who’s who of well known actresses like Donna Mills, Joan Collins, Crystal Hunt, Lindsay Hartley, Vanessa Marcil,and Chrystee Pharris, (who is probably the only down to earth star among all the starlets). The theme of the show is how they are all supposed to be “working” together to promote the show, thus promoting themselves, and getting a slot on PrimeTime TV. The show consists of a lot of star power and huge egos all wanting their time in front of the cameras.

One of the starlets, Crystal Hunt, has been on Queens of Drama since it first went into production on April 26, 2015,in Los Angeles. She actually plays herself and is one of the key players that makes the series so interesting and keeps the Queens fans on their toes.

Metacritic indicates that Crystal started working in the public very early in her life. Her mom enrolled her from the tender age of 2 in beauty and talent pageants, and she was able to star in many commercials as she grew up. Crystal began her soap opera career on the Guiding Light as Lizzie from 2003 through 2006. She quickly became a favorite of the soap opera audience as the mixed up and always in trouble teen. This role gave her an Emmy nomination.

Crystal was then cast in a few movies and soon moved up to the big screen where she played opposite Zac Efron in The Derby Stallion and Amanda Bynes in Sydney White. She then decided to go back to daytime and starred in One Life To Live for another three years as Stacy Morasco, a stripper with a love for her sisters fiance.

Crystal continued with her movie career with NYC Underground and Blast. Hunt has most recently co-starred in Magic Mike XXL with an all star cast including Channing Tatum,Matt Bomer,and many other leading men.

Hunt has diversified her talents and has produced a film with her best friend, Dania Ramirez, called Talbot County.

Crystal Hunt stays busy with her acting career and continues to look into other projects that might be of interest to her to produce. Catch her on Queens of Drama!

George Soros: The Billionaire Oracle

Earlier this year, Forbes billionaire George Soros caused ripples in the economic sector when he stated that an economic crisis is looming. He said that the current environment resembled that of the 2008 global crisis and the situation in China should act as a cautionary signal to investors. China devalued the yuan a few months ago and in an effort to reassure investors, kept up its price by starving offshore markets of the currency. The hedge fund manager warned of a similar crisis a few years ago when the Greece debt crunch came into play. Even though some people had written him off, he correctly predicted the economic crisis of 2008.

Mr. George Soros is a Democrat and has used his wealth to back Democratic candidates that he believes will make a difference. Soros most ambitious political project to date was during the 2004 election where he backed John Kerry. Soros had expressed his dislike for George Bush and wanted to ensure that the Republican candidate did not become president for a second term. He gave more than $20 million to Kerry’s campaign but, unfortunately, Bush was re-elected. In the 2008 election, Soros wasn’t heavily involved, but he gave to Priorities USA, a Super PAC that backed Barrack Obama. Anticipating the 2016 election, Soros has backed Hillary Clinton, a candidate that he considers competent and open to suggestions. He recently made the news when he presented a 6 million dollar check to Priorities USA, in addition to another million he had given before.

George Soros is of Hungarian descent but fled the country after the Second World War. He went on to England to study at the London School of Economics, graduating with a Bachelors degree and a doctorate in philosophy. As an economist, his breakthrough into the elite circles came when he sold 10B pounds making a profit of 1 B pounds.

Apart from business, he is a devoted philanthropist and one of the most charitable billionaires we have today. He started philanthropy in the 70s when he sponsored South African youth to attend the Cape Town University. He has started the Open Society Foundation, a cause which seeks to improve civil life and encourage transparency in governance all around the world. He is currently a member of the top 30 richest people in the world with an estimated value of around $28 B even though he has given more than a third of that in the past to charity.

Soros is the author of a number of books such as The Tragedy of the European Union, Open Society and the Age of Fallibility. He is also an avid writer and writes pieces for reputable media organizations such as the Atlantic and the Wall Street Journal.

Wikipedia, Spamming, and Monitoring Explained

Leonardo DiCaprio finally received his long-awaited Best Actor win. Taking the Oscar for the film The Revenant was big news. All of the entertainment news sites covered the big result. The actor’s Wikipedia page was quickly updated. Unfortunately, the Wikipedia page was also ridiculously spammed by someone who got a little bit carried away in adding the news. A rude sentence “heralding” the actor’s success was repeatedly written on the Wikipedia page.

Someone who is thinking about Wikipedia business page creation for personal branding or business promotional purposes might not think a movie star’s lament has much relevance. The situation is illustrative of what can happen on an open source website community. The situation also shows what can be done when a spammer adds unwanted material to a Wikipedia page. 

DiCaprio’s people did not allow the content on his Wikipedia page to remain marred. They went right into action, and scrubbed the website of all the offending content. The Wikipedia page was returned to normal, and the content serves the original purpose once again thanks to a Wikipedia editing service. The content provides valuable and accurate information about the actor.

Businesses and individuals in needs of online promotions should always look towards creating a Wikipedia page. The site may not be designed for direct marketing or promotional appeals, but the restrictions are a good thing. Sometimes, the best thing to do is to get solid informational content out there. A good biography can help develop a brand or fix a reputation. Wikipedia is a nice resource for publishing a short or lengthy biography. And that content can be added to at any time. If a great actor such as Leonardo DiCaprio believes a Wikipedia page should be taken seriously, other should follow his lead.

They should also follow his lead to make sure the content reads well. Selecting professional Wiki experts for hire capable of writing perfect content would definitely help ensure the page is great. Get Your Wiki is one such professional service, and their Wiki writers are capable of doing solid writing and editing work. Get Your Wiki is also available for doing all-important monitoring tasks to update a Wikipedia page.

Monitoring revolves around keeping tabs on a Wikipedia page for spamming and other unwanted content, and making edits to the page when necessary. To make sure a Wikipedia does what is necessary to be effective from a promotional perspective, the content has to be free of unwanted material.

How Talk Fusion Makes Life Easier

In recent months I discovered a company called Talk Fusion that combines words and video together for better communication. I think that this is one of the coolest companies around because it allows people to provide a much more personalized form of communication. This is the type application software that works well for anyone that may have a business. The founder of Talk Fusion is Bob Reina, and he’s done phenomenal work with this business.

Talk Fusion also provides people with the ability to conduct video chat sessions. This is another thing that I have found extremely valuable as a business owner. It saves me a lot of time and travel because I now have the ability to connect with customers without going to their physical locations.

I definitely like the concept of the video email because it proves to be a lot more effective. Email was the staple business decades ago, but it became replaced by a lot of the video conferencing applications. Email is making a comeback with customized application software like the programs that were created by Talk Fusion. This is a company that allows business owners like myself to actually get pre-recorded messages that can be inserted into emails. This is much better because it presents the opportunity to personalize messages while displaying valuable content in text form.

The great thing about the video email is that there are many different templates to utilize. Once I purchased the software I discovered that there were as many as 1000 different templates to consider. I think this is great for business leaders because it gives them a chance to customize their emails for their clients.

Video chat concept is also a lot better because people have the ability to chat with others that have a computer without the annoying things like plug-ins and other software downloads.

I know that there are a lot of business leaders that are holding online seminars through this software. I certainly think that it is one of the most efficient ways to communicate. It is definitely something that is affordable and easy to use. I believe the combination of these two things will inevitably drive people to Talk Fusion.
