In the spring of 2017 flood water rose in San Jose California when a river teeming with water spilled out onto its banks and beyond. The rising waters caused rescuers to order residents from their homes. Following orders and fearing for their lives many families abandoned their homes and with nowhere else to go, were forced to seek haven in shelters. Many of these families struggled long before the water washed away their homes and all that they owned. However, after the crisis abated these families found that their previous troubles were nothing compared to what they faced. Making rent was a ritualistic source of anxiety in the days past but now they were unable to even produce a security deposit.
Situations of this nature cause many families who were at risk for homelessness to fall into it head first. Without Clothing or stable housing parents find themselves unable to work only exacerbating the already critical situation. Despite the best efforts of the parent’s children feel the strain of this economic pressure. Unsuitable living conditions or instability take away from their ability to learn. While it may not seem like such a travesty in the story term, in the long term it can be devastating to a child’s ability to achieve their goals.
Being such a strong advocate for closing the achievement gap and aiding in the success of these unfortunate communities, Rocketship Education felt compelled to step in. The staff took it upon themselves in the earliest days, delivering hot meals and trying to supply families with anything they had available. Very little time passed before the school took a more formal and concerted action. Realizing the value of partnership in this endeavor they contacted local nonprofit organizations. After rallying together the school and Catholic charities in the area were able to raise $62,000 to fund the relief. These funds were received with gratitude as families realized they would be able to pay deposits of deductibles on insurance policies. Many parents had no idea their child’s school would be their savior. Rocketship Education, however, was happy to be able to support the community they believe in passionately.

The new real estate development is being welcomed by the citizens of Atlantic City, and they are hoping that it is the beginning of the city’s economic boom. Atlantic City’s economy became stagnant for more than a decade, after its casino industry was crippled by rising entertainment cities nearby. The people are hoping that the project would generate jobs that can benefit families living in the city. The vice president of Boraie Development, Wasseem Boraie, stated that after they finished the project, they are looking forward to build more housing projects in the city. The Beach at South Inlet would have several facilities which the residents can enjoy, including a swimming pool, fitness center, and a lounge.

In this world, the movers and shakers control everything with their massive influence. Such influence terrifies their enemies and leaves them begging for these influencers to go away. The Republican Party certainly feels this way about George Soros. His name is whispered in halls and back rooms alike. Fear sweeps through the GOP whenever he shows his face. He is the boogeyman of the right and Republicans have good reason to fear him.George Soros has sat as an extreme leftist ever since he experienced the hardships of working as a waiter, as well as a rail porter, to put himself through school at the London School of Economics.After leaving those jobs, he founded and grew the Soros Fund Management. Having successfully run this fund; it would bring his total net worth to over $25 billion. George Soros used this money to become a royal pain to the Republicans.
In 2004, Soros committed to stopping George W. Bush from remaining in the presidency by any means necessary. Soros turned heads when he donated $27 million (a record-breaking amount) to the Democratic Party, which was, at that time, run by John Kerry’s campaign. After Kerry’s lost, Soros began brainstorming ways to stop the Republican agenda.After George W. Bush left office, Soros decided he would back Barrack Obama. Originally he wanted to back Hillary Clinton, but after he saw Obama’s meteoric rise, he thought the people were ready for his liberal agenda. Unfortunately, after Obama took office, Soros felt he failed in pushing a strong liberal agenda and refused to back him when he ran for the White Hours again in 2012.
In 2016, Soros returned to his longtime friend and backed Hillary Clinton. His commitment was solidified when Soros realized that Trump had a good chance to win the election. Because Soros hates Trump, he swore to do what he must to keep the lunatic out of power. Soros donated $25 million to Clinton to keep the whole legislative and executive branch from becoming red.Once the dust had settled, and Trump was declared the winner, Soros was infuriated. However, Soros could play the long game and did not give up. Instead, he changed tactics and began organizing events and protests that would make Trump’s presidency difficult.
One event that Soros planned and then financed was the protest march for women’s rights. To honor this cause, everyone marching wore pink hats. This movement grew beyond just this country and included women from all around the world.Soros has been known to give money to supers such as Pac Planned Parenthood Votes and Immigrant Voters Win.George Soros has continued spreading the left’s message through the Open Society Foundation. This Foundation supports any group outside of the United States that long for Democratic processes to come to their country. The Open Society Foundation has supported women’s rights in foreign lands, as well as promoted LGBT rights where they are not currently accepted and vehemently denied.

Aging can be one of the most beautiful experiences for a person because with age usually comes wisdom and a deeper appreciation of all the things that are most important in life. In fact, in many countries across the world people who are older are treated with deep reverence for their wealth of knowledge of life. This usually begins by the time a person reaches their late middle age years of their 50’s and 60’s as they are usually in the prime of their careers and family life has grown out of early parenting. It is usually a time where there is greater satisfaction in looking forward to a time that is less stressful for people when they start to prepare for at least a partial retirement.
As most people know however, not all aspects of aging are rosy and cheerful. The more difficult part to aging is that what happens to a person when they reach their late middle age years of their 50’s and 60’s.
