George Soros and the Democracy Alliance

George Soros is an American business investor, philanthropist, political activist, author, and one of the richest people in the world. After the recent election of Donald Trump, Soros and other rich liberal contributors, who spent millions of dollars trying to elect Hillary Clinton to the Presidency, met in Washington DC for a three day meeting behind closed doors to bring together the big money contributors to fight against the new President elect.

The event was sponsored by the Democracy Alliance Donor club, at the Mandarin Oriental hotel. The Democracy Alliance was started in 2004 by Soros, Peter Lewis, and a handful of democratic mega-donors who spent millions of dollars trying to get then Senator John Kerry elected President in his challenge to then President George W. Bush. This conference on opensocietyfoundations.org featured leaders of many influential union and liberal groups. There was also appearances made by democratic leaders in politics like House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and Progressive Caucus Chairman Keith Ellison.

This meeting marks the first time that there had been a meeting of the liberal minds since Donald Trump’s surprise victory over Hillary Clinton. When looking at the agenda on Forbes, it seems that liberals are planning to go to war against Trump from day one of his presidency.

Soros himself had taken a step back from political donations in recent years. However, with this election, he stepped back in the political giving arena by committing twenty five million dollars to Clinton and other Democratic candidates and causes to try and defeat Trump and the Republican agenda. He also has not taken part in the Democratic Alliance meetings and proceedings in the past few years but decided to step back in and not only attend, but speak at this conference. This is an indication that George Soros is invested in opposing and stopping Donald Trump’s agenda.

On the agenda for the conference was a talk called “conversation with George Soros.” This talk focused on Soros’ personal experience with living through the Holocaust and Soviet Communism. This was put into context with a Trump Presidency, painting a not so rosy picture of what they believe the Trump Presidency will bring to America. George Soros has committed his foundations to protect open societies that are now being threatened in the United States. Soros banded with liberals and donors with plans to resist Trump and to take back power.

At the conference, there were sessions focused on protecting Obama’s legacy and the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, from Trump’s plan to dismantle all the progress that has been made. There were also panels on polling, rethinking how it is done and why it was so flawed in this election at http://www.politico.com/story/2016/07/george-soros-democratic-convention-226267. They also worked on how the left needs to change their approach in winning over the working class voters. An importance was also placed on giving resources and money to state legislatures for their policy battles and races, where the Republicans won large victories in the last election.

Chris Burch: The Future Of Technology And Fashion

Technology and fashion – they seem to go hand-in-hand as both industries grow together. Designers add technology to fashion, thus fashion becomes technologically fashionable. Chris Burch, founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital, explains that the introduction of mixing technology and fashion starts with looking into the past.

 

 

The Past Leads To The Present

 

Remember in the 70s when the youth of America walked around with boom boxes on their shoulders? They might add a little groove to their step and sing along as they listened to their favorite tunes and stations. As time marched on, the boxes had two cassette decks, helping the owner to play a tape on one side and create a copy on the other. Its use became more popular in the 80s as movie-watchers caught their favorite actors carrying boom boxes on the big screen. As the decades moved forward, the large boom box became personalized; people started walking around with or driving around with much smaller versions – first, the Walkman, then the iPod. Why did this happen? The popularity of technology comes through what the public deems fashionable.

 

 

What The Future Holds

 

Designers of high fashion keep looking for ways to sell, and technology looks promising both in functionality and innovation. For instance, a Dutch designer, Anouk Wipprecht, enjoys the experimentation of adding technology – she has actually created a drink-making dress and a self-painting dress. Technology also finds its way into protective fashion. Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin created a piece of protection for the neck: the Airbag for Cyclists. The airbag comes out of the neckwear, completely covering your head before impact.

 

Thus, we can see that technology has gained respect through the marriage of this industry with that of fashion. The two industries can definitely help each other gain in popularity. The use of technology takes fashion to the levels of beauty and function. The best part is that both industries can learn from each other.

 

 

The Wise Entrepreneur And Investor

 

Chris Burch likes to learn. He has gained the ability to know what his customers want intuitively. This, along with his entrepreneurial spirit, helped him to see more than 50 businesses rise in the 40 years of his investment career.

 

Mr. Burch has his hands in a variety of business industries, such as fashion, technology, and real estate. He began his career while an undergrad at Ithaca College, selling various items: hot dogs, pinball machines, and trips to Bermuda. He also invested $2,000 with his brother to start Eagle’s Eye Apparel, raised it to a cool $165 million, then sold it. The man certainly knows how to get and stay ahead.

NFL Betting Final Week and Thrilling Moments

There are lots of thrilling moments, twists and turns when teams playing show different types of performances. A lot is going around in this type of situation. Despite all that, I saw consistency with Week 17 total for the last few seasons. Since NFL season for 2013, Week 17 games ended with Over/Under count of 17-31 which means playing under the number over sixty percent of the time. The average of points was 41.89 for those forty-eight games while 45.05 was the total for average closing betting. During the last season, I noticed that eleven out of sixteen contests were played under the total in Week 17 with an average of 42.93. The total closing average was 44.25.

There could be many reasons or this situation. I believe it could be bad weather, resting starters, lack of effort, or playing backups on offense. Whatever was the reason, Under was more prominent in Week 17. In the decade of nineties, I saw the final week games were 186-202-6 Over/Under. At the counter, the Under cashing was fifty-two percent of the time. I realized that Week 17 games for the last six seasons are 39-58-3 Over/Under. For fans, it means the fifty-eight percent of low-scouring football.

The average betting total for season finales of 16 NFL was hardly over forty-four points. In 2016, NFL teams have combined for over forty-five points. Since 1922, it is the seventh top scoring season. This year, I saw NFL games were 125-112-3 Over/Under; it means a lean of over fifty-two percent to the Over.

I was surprised that at Cincinnati, The Ravens opened +2.5 which was a meaningless game. Both teams are now missing out the tournament. Sharp money is with the road team in Week 17. The biggest line move was CG Technology’s The Ravens-Bengals spread. Offshore openers like Patriots started with -6 and now they are at -10. From -6 to -4, Tampa Bay suffered a big drop. Carolina had a money line wager of $10,000 on the Panthers.

To my surprise, the regular season’s final game was Packers at Lions. It was a Sunday nighter for Week 17. On Green Bay, it also drew three times more bets than Detroit. From Packers, it also pushed the line where hitting was most of the action. The lightly-bet Week 17 board will be determined by the finale of the regular season which is on Thursday. I believe that money is one-sided on the Cheeseheads. Majority also agrees with it. I strongly recommend covers.com as the right place to bet on football odds or the Super Bowl.

Why Working With OSI Is A Great Idea

As a restaurant owner of supermarket owner, you need to get high-quality and inexpensive food from somewhere. You’ve been burned by your past food providers more times than you can count and you’re getting sick of having to change. Thankfully, excellent companies like OSI are available to help you out of your food supply doldrums.

What Is The History Of OSI?

OSI differs from other large food providers because it has its roots in small-town and family-oriented businesses. Starting in 1909 in Chicago as a single family meat market, OSI has since expanded to provide food to companies and communities all around the world.

OSI Group acquired other companies and has grown significantly, bringing them into the fold to offer high-quality food at fair prices.

Another interesting facet about this company is that it remains privately held. This means it does not suffer from the whims of a large group of investors or a disinterested board of directors who only want to maximize their bottom line.

OSI is still family-owned and operated and believes that helping the little guy is just as crucial as boosting big business.

As a result, people who work with OSI are always surprised at just how friendly they are to those who work with them. Working with the same few people for years is a common occurrence with OSI, and you’re likely to be on a first-name basis with most of them.

This creates a “small-business” feel that is unique to OSI and which can’t be faked. They are the real deal and they appreciate their customers on a highly personal level.

The Commitment To Sustainability

OSI is also different from other food providers in that they focus heavily on sustainability. They know that there’s only so much room on the planet to grow food and that millions of people are starving every day.

As a result, they work hard to minimize their environmental impact and focus on sustainability in a way you don’t see in other companies

The benefits of this approach are multi-faceted. For example, it allows OSI to have a steady supply of food to provide you. As a result, you’ll rarely have to wait long for your order.

It also helps ensure that their supply is never lower than their demand, decreasing operating costs and passing on savings to both OSI and to you as a consumer.

Even better, OSI focuses on helping its suppliers (such as farmers and others) better understand sustainability and how to maximize their farming efficiency. The benefit translates to you by decreasing OSI operation costs, increasing their efficiency, creating high-quality food, and helping to save you money on investing in their operating costs. It’s a win-win for all sides!
