Compassionate and Progressive George Soros

George Soros is a unique activist and philanthropist. He believes in freedom for all and advocates for freedom of expression, transparency, accountable government, and societies that promote justice and equality. He has spent his life fighting for these causes and to this date has donated over $12 billion dollars. Soros has based most of his charity work on helping people overcome discrimination based only on who they are. Read his profile at Washington Times.

Soros is unique because he has faced such discrimination that he fights against firsthand. Being born in Hungary and present during the Nazi occupation has contributed to his compassion for this cause. Experiencing firsthand the genocide of over 500,000 Hungarian Jews only strengthened his determination to make the world a better place. His own family had to resort to extreme measures to ensure their own survival. These included such things as securing false identity papers, concealing their backgrounds, and helping others in danger do the same. Soros recalls that his family, themselves, as well as helped others overcome an evil force.

After leaving Hungary for London, and London for the United States in 1956, Soros began to acquire his fortune. With his wealth, Soros created the Open Society Foundation. Through this network, Soros helped many in need and advocated his unique philanthropy. Some of his earliest accomplishments were sending aid to black South Africans and assisting the open exchange of banned books in the Communist Eastern Bloc.

After the Cold War, he expanded his efforts to include fighting for accountable, transparent, and democratic societies. He was an early opponent of the war against drugs; he believed that the drug war caused more damage than the drugs themselves. Soros also helped to launch the American medical marijuana program. Soros was also an advocate of gay rights. In the early 2000’s he began advocating for same-sex marriage.

Throughout George Soros career, he has fought for many things. But his progressive and compassionate nature have remained consistent. Soros has dedicated himself to fighting the for world’s most unfairly treated groups. Although he is getting older, he is still fighting to make the world a better place for everyone in it, regardless of their skin color, socioeconomic status, and origin. George Soros is a true progressive and philanthropist. Learn more about his profile at businessinsider.com.

The Success of Doe Deere

Doe Deere is a makeup business owner. She is originally from Russia, but she moved to New York when she was a teenager. She had ambition to become a musician, which was why she decided to move to the United States.

As a musician starting out in New York she learned a thing or two about business that would prove to become exceedingly helpful when she would start her own makeup business. She learned how to market oneself. How to brand oneself. And she picked up on how creativity is necessary to get the attention of people. She lived in New York from 1998 until 2012. During that time she was a musician, just starting out her makeup company and met her husband. Her husband was one of her bandmates in New York.

Doe Deere’s advice to young women who are entering their professional lives is to always follow your heart. Be ambitious. Work hard for what you seek out of your career. When you are content in your work, then you are complete and far happier.

Lime Crime was something that Doe Deere had to achieve by following her heart. She loved bright colors, stage makeup and costumes. She started off Lime Crime as an eBay company that mainly sold costumes and fashion she created.  This led to many women and girls buying her makeup products. She halted producing fashion, to focus on her makeup products instead. She does still create fashion though. She attended FIT in New York and majored in fashion design. It is part of her creative process to create fashion. Doe Deere still works on music from time to time as well. Her main goals right now are focused on creating new and interesting makeup products and colors for Lime Crime.

Her purpose and goal with creating Lime Crime makeup is to encourage people to be themselves. She seeks to inspire people to be creative and to create the beauty they seek with her products.

Kyle Bass Gets It All Wrong On Oil

 

Kyle Bass has a hedge fund in Dallas that he used to bet really big on oil, and that is something that a lot of people were not sure would work. He wanted to be invested in oil because he thought that the technology for other kinds of energy was just not viable yet. He wanted to be as big and splashy as he could with his investments, but it did not work. That is something that people are not surprised by, and they have seen him as a gambler for a long time.

 

Kyle Bass has always been pretty good with betting money because he is rich enough to do it, but other people who follow what he does know that he is just not the right person to work with. He has taken a big stance on a lot of different things that have not panned out, and sometimes it looks like he does not do his research. Other big investors already pulled out of energy because they knew that it would be a bad investment, and that is where Kyle Bass misses out.

 

The investors that want to get the best results should probably go with other investors, and they need to try out what the analysts are saying about Kyle Bass. He is wrong for a lot of people who need information, and his hedge fund is actually down about 7% just because of the oil losses he took. That is dangerous for people who want to make more money from investment instead of just guessing at how to manage their money.
