Venezuelan Government Launches New Program To Help Women Advance

In a report by open corporates, the South American country has vowed to invest more in efforts that alleviate stress caused by unequal opportunities in the workplace and has begun with a program called Soy Mujer.
Soy Mujer, translated in English by linguist Jose Velasquez as “I Am Woman,” has 100 initiatives that will help women who are underprivileged and underrepresented. The program addresses the areas of urban agriculture, textiles, and footwear in its quest to ensure that women are given equality.

Venezuela is one of several South American regions that oppresses its female population with stringent policies that inadvertently prevent women from obtaining loans for businesses and high-paying jobs. Soy Mujer deems its female population as the greatest contributors to the economy.

The Venezuelan government has contributed 138 million bolivars to Soy Mujer. The program was launched on Dateas, Wednesday, May 25, 2016.



James O’Keefe Caught Red-Handed Trying to Lie His Way into George Soros’ Humanitarian Organization

Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. In a hilarious twist of fate conservative activist James O’Keefe was caught red-handed trying to lie his way inside the Open Society Foundations (OSF). OSF is a progressive organization funded by George Soros. O’Keefe’s attempt was foiled when he failed to hang up the phone after leaving a hasty voice mail on OSF member Dana Geraghty’s phone while pretending to be the fictional Victor Kesh.

After dictating the voicemail O’Keefe can be heard snapping at someone else in the room about not interrupting him while he is on the phone. He then goes on to reveal his plan about infiltrating OSF. The recording also captures O’Keefe conniving to get more information about Geraghty by connecting to her through LinkedIn. He decided against that when he realized that she would have been able to see his profile as well. O’Keefe also directs disturbing language that has implied sexual innuendoes towards Ms. Geraghty as he refers to using her as a “point of entry.”

The fraudulent attempt was forwarded to OSF President Chris Stone. He commented that O’Keefe’s lack of intelligence regarding the proper use of technology and overall ignorance makes him look like a bumbling idiot. Stone was still very disturbed by it though because it indicates a lot of under-handed activity going on in the background.

OSF is a privately-funded grant-making institution founded by George Soros in 1993. Its aim is to advance initiatives in education, justice, public health, and independent media. It has spent over $11 billion towards these goals and has an endowment valued at over $1.5 billion. George Soros believes that the world’s issues need to be responded to as appropriate as they occur instead of trying to solve every problem with a standardized approach. His reasoning is that events don’t happen by themselves in a vacuum. They manifest organically similar to the way the financial markets operate. That is why he designed OSF to respond dynamically to needs around the world as needed.

George Soros is a well-respected billionaire business magnate and global philanthropist. His early encounter with the hate-mongering Nazis in his youth helped to shape his worldview that a capitalism-driven society is one of the best ways to preserve freedom for all. Through his formal education and natural business acumen Soros established a very lucrative career that has enabled him to become a self-made billionaire.

Why Does The CEO Of FreedomPop Have To Explain Himself To Mobile World Live?

Mobile World Live got a really good explanation from the president of FreedomPop about how they plan to keep their business operating. Most businesses would expect to have a lot of paying customers if they are going to keep the lights on, but FreedomPop is going to keep the lights on using a system that is going to go against everything that the cell phone industry knows.

The cell phone industry charges high prices in most cases to give people cell service, but FreedomPop charges nothing or next to nothing to give people what they want. The people who come to FreedomPop are spending no money at all on a free phone, or they are spending a small amount every month on a phone that has a simple plan. The simple plans save money, and the free plans give people phones when they cannot afford them.

People have accused FreedomPop of being crazy, and it looks like they are taking that to heart because they are going to keep doing what they have done. They do not want to be like the other companies in the industry, and they are going to bet on the fact that people appreciate that. They are going to keep their free plans, and they are going to make sure that they are expanding at their own rate. They want to send their networks to as many parts of the world as possible, and they are going to keep raising funds for that.

They are also going to enact a new kind of business plan that is going to focus on digital ads and other kinds of revenue that are not just about selling plans. They do have paying customers, but they also have people with them who do not pay at all. They can sell ads to make up for this, and they will have so many customers that they can afford to keep doing this for as long as they want.

Here’s a review of FreedomPop

Moving Time Forward To Save Energy

Venezuela is trying to come up with anything possible in order to save money in a country where the economy is in dire need of saving. Officials have decided to speed time up by about half an hour. Nicolas Maduro made the decision in the hopes that businesses would close early, workers like Norka Luque would leave their jobs early and schools would send students home early. If no one is open, then there won’t be any electricity to use, which would save on money that is spent as well as save on the electricity that is also running low. Since the time is moved forward Ms Luque said, “there will be more daylight in the evening, which will also decrease the amount of electricity that is used”. The change doesn’t take place until May 1. There is no word as to how long the change will be in effect, but there are negative responses to the decision.


Solving the Greek Refugee Crisis

As seen on The New York Review of Books, investor and philanthropist George Soros explains that there are four fundamental flaws of the asylum policy on that has come from recent EU-Turkey negotiations. Soros states that the policy is not European as it was too heavily pushed by the German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Another crucial flaw with the plan is that it is underfunded and financially unstable from the start. It also forces different states to take refugees that they do not want to shelter as well as taking away the choice from fleeing refugees on what country they want to live in. This creates a cultural clash on as immigrants are forced to live in countries that are not welcoming. Finally, the negotiations force Greece into the go-to waiting zone for refugees even though Greece does not have the required resources to hold them.

George Soros argues that all of the flaws of the proposal can be corrected and that the European Commission has acknowledged that there are some serious issues. George Soros continues to state that there is an impending humanitarian crisis in Greece. These refugee policies will only make matters worse. One of the most effective things that EU leaders can do is ensure that sufficient funding is in place to handle the mass surge of refugees. Most importantly, leaders need to understand that there will be an initial surge of refugees and this cannot be handled with limited funding that was meant to address the ongoing issue. A large amount of initial funding is needed in order for shelter countries to adequately place the refugees. Visit Open Society Foundations website to know more about George Soros.

Another key issue in the refugee crisis is ensuring that newly placed refugees are able to establish themselves in their new countries. Adequate funding of the project is key in assuring that the newly placed refugees have all of the resources that they need to get their feet back on the ground. The countries that are housing the refugees must be given adequate financial support to bear the burden. Furthermore, forcing refugees into countries that do not want to house them creates additional barriers for the long term financial success of refugees. In order to have a truly sustainable plan for the refugee crisis, these barriers need to be reduces and individuals must feel welcome in their new countries.

George Soros support for progressive and humanitarian policies has helped millions of people all across the world. He was key in ensuring the peaceful change from Socialism to Capitalism in Eastern Europe. To date, George Soros has donated more than $11 billion to various different causes that are aimed at improving the lives of individuals living in all corners of the earth. One of the things that makes Soros a dynamic and successful individual is his ability to understand the market around him.

Dog Food Takes a Turn for the Healthy

The Daily Herald explains the recent facebook trend towards innovation in the pet food industry to produce healthier, more nutritious dog food in a recent article about the drastic changes to the pet food market. The $23.7 billion pet food industry in the U.S. has been increasingly dominated by pet food producers advertising the healthy recipes behind their dog food brands and educating customers about the benefits of their natural, healthy ingredients. At a time when the American public is more aware than ever of the food being served on its table and the ingredients being purchased at the grocery store, it should come as no surprise that families are eager to feed their dogs the top of the line dog food that they can find on the market. Companies are in cut throat competition with each other to keep pace with this trend and to continue to find ways to keep production costs down while incorporating more expensive healthy ingredients in their formulas, such as lean chicken.
One of the dog food companies that has been able to exceed expectations and distance itself from the competition on this healthy dog food trend is Beneful, which is owned by Purina. Beneful has gained incredible respect and loyalty among customers for standing behind its product with a customer satisfaction guarantee and providing transparent information about its formula and ingredients so that puppy parents are well-informed about what they are feeding their precious pets.

Besides providing top of the line ingredients, Beneful offers a wide range of options for dog food varieties. In addition to offering eight dry food varieties, Beneful has made its mark on the dog food market by providing 20 wet food options and 11 dog treats. Its packaging is also extremely innovative in allowing pet owners to heat the Beneful wet food directly in the container and serve it up right on the spot.


A New Dog in the Neighborhood

A few days ago I took a walk to the store to get a gallon of milk for dinner. Because of what I found on my way to the store, I had to change my grocery list around a little bit. Instead of grabbing milk and a pack of cigarettes for my husband, I came out with those items plus a large bag of Purina Beneful. The reasoning behind my purchase of Beneful is because on my walk I found a small, docile dog just laying on the sidewalk. She wasn’t hurt at all, but you could tell she was lonely and very hungry. Instead of turning my cheek I patted my upper thigh so she would get up and follow me to the store. Once we got there she waited patiently for me while I picked her up some dinner.

On the shelves of the walmart store they had a new brand called Freshpet, which I had just recently heard about online. This dog food uses fresh meat and vegetables so that the food tastes just as delicious as the meals I prepare at home. Just because I felt bad for this poor dog, I made sure to pick up a few containers of Freshpet as a treat. I also knew that the fresh products in the food would help her get back to good health quickly. Anything that does not have a bunch of additives in it will surely make anyone healthy.

When I brought the dog home to my husband that night I was rather surprised at his response. Instead of becoming flustered, he welcomed the dog with open arms and asked if we were going to keep her. As soon as he asked the question, I held up the bag of Beneful dry dog food and shook it. As soon as the dog heard the shake, she immediately started wagging her tail which made us both smile ear to ear.
