The World According To George Soros

In true George Soros style, the billionaire offered his opinions to Forbes in a recent interview. These opinions ranged from the collapse of China, to the strength of the EU, the rising rates of the FEDs and political agendas. Specifically, Soros was very candid about his thoughts on Donald Trump and his immigration policy.

Mr Soros himself was a refugee during WWII. He received his primary education in London and then went on to New York to work for major financial firms in the 1950’s. He feels a genuine connection to those who are “stateless”, and feels that Trump’s closure of the US borders will only predicate more violence towards the country.

On the other hand, Mr Soros feels that Hillary Clinton will will by a landslide in the primaries. He feels that she is the best candidate by far in the Democratic pool and strongly supports her campaign. This comes as no surprise for Mr Soros has always been closely associated with the Democratic Party and liberal agendas.

The outlook given for the current estate of financial affairs in the United States is not so bright and cheery. Overall h states that this is not a good time to start investing, and that those who hold investments should strongly consider selling them. He thinks that a downturn in the system will cause some hardship, but for those who heed his advice they will come out of the whole thing ok.

Soros is world reknowned for his accuracy in predicting market conditions and making quite a nice nest egg for himself through international investments. He has published a number of books and is quite frequently seen in magazines and newspapers for his articles and opinions.

Soros holds a degree of Finance that he acquired in London. He came to the United States shortly thereafter and began his career in financial management and wealth generation. A gifted portfolio manager and respected for his views and predictions, George Soros has made very good on the American Dream.

The Forbes  interviewed concluded with his statement that while China may experience a hard drop in their financial standing in the world, they are not poised to crash. They will fall hard, but it will not be the complete crash that others are predicting. They will take a hard knock or two, but they will regain their stature and even come out of the situation a little better off than when they started.

The whole thing will depend on slow and gradual regrowth. That goes for the United States as well. The Feds took too long to institute a rate hike,and that hurt the US economy a bit. Changes should be brought into the financial picture slowly so that they have time to be fully embraced and make the changes they are meant to make.

Shaking Up The Home Selling Process With Greg Hague

Most people are familiar with the basic home selling process. A seller will work with a real estate agent. The agent puts the house on the market for them. The agent sets up a sign outside, typically tells the owner to do some painting and then holds an open house now and then to bring in buyers. In the view of entrepreneur Gregory Hague, this process is one that does not work well at all in today’s changing market. Hague points out that people have changed the way they sell many kinds of items to customers, yet the basic process of selling a house has not changed at all in a long time.

In his view, sellers and agents need to challenge this process and help figure out a better way of selling their homes. He argues in a recent article in Forbes Magazine that the current selling process can actually actively work against the needs of many sellers. Many sellers may have a sudden flurry of activity once their house goes on the market. If this activity does not result in offers, the net result may activity work against the seller by forcing them to keep their property on the market and letting it appear to buyers that buyers do not want to purchase it. A buyer may tour the house after it has been on the market for a few months and decide that the only offer they want to make is one that not even close to the price the seller hopes to get.

He wants to help them. In his company, Real Estate Mavericks, the seller’s needs are front and center. He wants to show agents how they help short circuit this process and assist buyers and sellers in coming together. His process is aimed at offering a structure that is all about showing off a property to best advantage. In doing so, his primary aim with any property is to make sure the property will not sit on the market for a day longer than necessary.

This is why helped created a detailed plan that is all about speed. His 29-Day Fast Sale Program is centered around providing help to bring in buyers who see a property and want to buy it as soon as they can. He knows that a home seller must aim to generate as much excitement as possible the moment they think of placing their house on the market. Excitement is what helps drive real estate sales. Buyers who see a property as something that is likely to sell fast are buyers who will often help drive up the price of the property even further and even start a bidding war.

Yeonmi Park Talks About the Daily Horrors of Life in North Korea

“When you grow up under the Kim regime, you know only what they teach you,” Yeonmi Park murmured, speaking of her friend’s death. Young Yeonmi had been raised to believe that dying for the Kim regime was among one of the most honorable things a North Korean could do. Yeonmi, however, could not erase the sound of the gunfire that claimed her friend’s mother’s life. The woman’s only crime had been watching a contraband James Bond film. Yeonmi was born in 1993, a time when famine swept through North Korea killing millions. Like many, her father turned to the smuggling of illegal goods to help support his family. A civil servant, Mr. Park turned to trading metal to save money. It was his wish to relocate his family from North Korea to China. He was arrested and imprisoned, leaving Yeonmi’s mother to support herself and two children on just a nurse’s salary. Yeonmi’s family was now faced with starvation. Yeonmi and her mother were led by human smugglers from North Korea into China. They were sold into slavery where Yeonmi was forced into marriage and sex slavery. “It is hard to speak of being raped,” Yeonmi Park recalled. “North Korean women are taught to value their virginity. Without it, the world ends. My world ended.” The two were freed years later and eventually made their way to South Korea. “I did not know what freedom was,” Yeonmi recalled. “We could not comprehend it. I believed having food was freedom and the happiest thing.” Yeonmi studied criminal justice in college and became a human rights activist on youngvoicesadvocates. She began to speak at summits across the globe about the horrors of life in North Korea. “My mother would tell me not to speak my mind. She warned me that the birds always watched and would hear me,” Yeonmi said. Yeonmi’s anger and hatred of men overwhelmed her during her first year of college. The hatred faded, and she learned compassion as she studied about Nelson Mandela and Gandhi. Yeonmi and her mother were separated from her sister, Eunmi, shortly before leaving North Korea. They were excited to learn that Eunmi had also made her way to South Korea. The family has since reunited.

Shopping with the HAL 9000

Everyone remembers the movie 2001 A Space Odyssey and the on board HAL 9000. HAL’s job was to pilot the ship to Jupiter in order to inspect a monolith similar to the one found years before on the moon. The movie was excellent and gave some of us a look at what may be the future for AI and computers. Now, fast forward to 2016 and we can see that many of the current tools offered by our small hand held computers are in line with the HAL 9000. That being said, there is a fast growing technology called ‘Visual Search’ developed in an MIT think tank that could in fact have us shopping with HAL.

Slyce technology offers retailers an opportunity to take a potential client and offer them choices for their merchandise. In an act as simple as taking a picture with your smart phone a retail customer could in fact be pointed to your online store to purchase an item. ‘Visual Search’ can easily bring new customers to your merchandise and be bringing in business simply because your product looks much like another.

As an example, you may be using some form of public transit and notice someone wearing a pair of sandals that you really like. Instead of annoying another person with several questions about their apparel in order to find out where they bought the sandals, how much were they, so on and so forth, you simply take a quick snapshot of them with your smart phone and use the Slyce interface to query the literally billions of images stored in their vast database. After a few brief moments you are given several choices as to similar sandals. You choose one that is similar and then you are presented with an even closer match to the sandals you are looking for. After just a minute or two you have found a pair of sandals that match the ones you are looking at and are presented with options to purchase the sandals. A simple, quick, and effective way to shop and ultimately get exactly what you want.

Slyce and ‘Visual Search’ are fast becoming a method to search and shop for items that you really want. Items that you may forget about if you don’t look them up right away. This technology offers the next step in customer service and satisfaction before the item is purchased and will be a real boon to those retailers that see the benefit.
