George Soros on the Economy

Introduction

George Soros is one of the best people in the world when it comes to making predictions on the economy. Over the past couple of years, he has been one of the most accurate people on the global economic environment. This is one of the biggest reasons that many people are unsettle by his latest prediction. George Soros has said that this year is shaping up to be a lot like 2008. Over a long period of time, this could have far reaching implications on the overall economy. In this article by Bloomberg, George Soros makes it pretty clear that there is a lot of weakness around the world when it comes to the economy. Here are some of his biggest reasons for being bearish on the overall economy.

China

China has long been a nice engine for growth on the world stage. However, there has been a lot of weak data coming out of China in recent months. If this trend continues, it could signal a slowdown in China that the world is not expecting. There are many areas of the world that are experiencing low rates of growth. However, if the developing nations of the world are not growing quickly there could be a lot more issues than we were expecting. The world markets tend to respond very negatively when there is an issue they are not aware of. The weakness coming out of China is something that really took a lot of people by surprise.

Interest Rates

One of the biggest factors on the overall economy is the interest rates. This is essentially how much it costs to borrow money in the current economy. There is a theory that says the higher the interest rate, the slower the rate of growth will be in the economy over the long term. Anyone who is looking to make an impact in the economy can lower interest rates in an attempt to spur growth. However, low interest rates really punish the savers and those who have been trying to build up wealth. A low interest rate environment is difficult to invest in. Anyone who wants to try and earn a high rate of return in this environment is going to have a difficult time doing so.

George Soros

George Soros has been known to make a lot of economic predictions over the years. He is one of the few people who simply do not care whether or not people believe what he has to say. In 2008, he was one of the few people who were saying there was a lot to worry about in the economy. Over the long term, many people tend to follow what he has to say when it comes to the economy. George Soros is someone who has a track record of success when it comes to making economic predictions. This is one of the biggest reasons that so many people are worried about what he has to say on the subject.

Premium Dog Food Makers Cash In On Expanding Market

The trend toward healthier food choices is expanding from people to their dogs in a big way. A number of manufacturers, both small independent firms and big-time players, are ramping up production of healthier products that contain more nutrition, have more natural ingredients and resemble the finest people food. And, sales of these premium products are increasing, to the satisfaction of picky dog owners and the delight of company executives. An interesting recap of this trend can be found at http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20151122/business/151129983. These upscale products introduce innovations such as raw meat, fresh vegetable ingredients, probiotics, jerky, grilled products, whole grains (or, alternatively, grain-free formulas), refrigerated meals and special blends for older dogs. Upstart companies such as Freshpet and Blue Buffalo are finding their niche by tapping into this trend. Freshpet products, for example, sell for about twice the price of traditional canned varieties but have done away with nasty “dog food” smell. Major producers, including Purina, Smucker and Mars Petcare, have jumped in to the market by developing or purchasing their own boutique lines. One of these competitors is Beneful, produced by Purina. This brand produces a complete line of both dry and wet dog food products, featuring meat and fish ingredients, vegetables and wild rice. Their lineup also includes sub-specialties such as: Healthy Smiles, offering dental ridges and twists; Chopped Blends, a wet product packaged in resealable plastic; and Baked Delights dog treats in a variety of shapes and flavors. Beneful has been on the market since 2001. The name means “full of goodness”. In recent years it has become the number 4 overall brand in sales with annual volume of $1.5 billion. As dog owners demand better choices, the eat-like-your-owner trend is here to stay. Premium brands now account for over half of US dog food sales, and a growing army of food producers expects this trend to continue.

Coriant Just Hired The Great Shaygan Kheradpir

Shaygan Kheradpir is the new chief executive officer of Coriant, succeeding Mr. Pat DiPietro for the position. Mr. DiPietro stepped down because he and other executives had actively been looking for a new person with executive experience which they found in Mr. Shaygan Kheradpir. Coriant helps communications service providers and others who need network control systems to succeed as a business by implementing and helping monitor these systems. For example, customer service providers need to be able to pull a customer’s information in just a few seconds, or else that customer might not be happy. Coriant helps keep this wait time low, along with making the entire system easier to use.

Shaygan Kheradpir is originally from Iran, where he got his start. Mr. Kheradpir was urged by his father to move to the United States because many education opportunities were there, which he went through with. Shaygan must be very glad he did so, because he ended up earning three degrees in the study of electrical engineering, a discipline that is very hard to master.

Coriant has given nine of the top ten tier 1 customer service providing companies network systems of theirs to use, which have worked very well. No other company can compete with Coriant in regards to this sector. Coriant owns the rights to more than eighteen hundred patents that are technologically-related that are going to help Coriant in the future.

Shaygan Kheradpir has worked at Verizon Communications, Barclays, and Juniper Networks, all of which are great players in the technological fields. Shaygan Kheradpir is truly one of the premier technological business executives in the United States, or around the world for that matter.

Healthcare Companies of 2015

As the year of 2015 is wrapping up, Russell Stanley aka an analyst of the Mackie Research Capital says that due to a comprehensive and extensive report done dedicated to the top companies in healthcare of the fourth quarter of 2015, his top pick is Nobilis Health Corp. (NHC-TSX). On September 23rd of this year, the healthcare company announced that they organically acquired a whopping 60% stake and management control of the former Freedom Pain Hospital located in Scottsdale, Arizona for only approximately $3.2-million. Nobilis as a whole, owns and operates both surgical centers and hospitals in certain popular regions of the United States, with a reputation of very high and fast growth, all organic. Russell Stanley came out with a statement, “We view (Nobilis) as an undervalued play on increasing demand for surgical procedures flowing from an aging population and the prevalence of obesity.” According to the popular website fastcompany.com, Medivation is their number one choice as an innovative healthcare provider in 2015. The San Francisco-based company is speeding through FDA approvals at an increasing rate and is already at a net worth of $338 million in sales. CEO of the company, Lynn Seely discusses her company’s goal of finding a better way to treat men’s prostate cancer, explains, “Our Company is focused on taking down serious diseases, and wanted to take down the risk.” The second most innovative healthcare company to date in the last quarter of 2015 is Beijing Genomics Institute for resulting DNA sequencing as a mass-market. At the end of the day, the institute spends more time using cutting-edge genome-sequencing hardware and in turn training more analysists to make sense of the reams of output of data; more so than any other university in the world. BGI as a result has turned themselves into a major go-to destination for scientists to seek and collaborate- as well as exchange ideas with each other regarding ambitious projects regarding the DNA of plants, animals, and humans. Third on the list would be Partners Healthcare, by providing an answer when urgent medical attention calls. By the final quarter of 2015, Partners Healthcare has already invested a high billion dollars per year in the following fields: drug discovery, information technology, and genetics. Brigham, Women’, and Massachusetts General Hospitals are also all affiliated with Partners. They currently stand out for their work on translating genomic advances into the field of building the relationship between medicine and the peoples’ personalization with it.

Doe Deere Breaks All The Makeup Rules

Doe Deere is the founder and CEO of the highly successful makeup business Lime Crime. Many people are familiar with the makeup products itself, especially those that are makeup enthusiasts. That’s because Lime Crime has quite a following and it’s a makeup line that has been turning heads for a while now. A lot of people don’t know much about the founder, though. They may have seen pictures of her, but there’s so many fascinating layers to Doe Deere.

Deere sat down with Bustle to talk about how makeup rules are meant to be broken. That philosophy is exactly what has made her company so successful. There are is an extensive group of people that look to Deere for not only makeup products but advice as well. One of the first makeup rules that Deere said needs to be broken is don’t wear too much bold makeup at once. Deere is the perfect example of rocking a variety of bold colors and making it look good. That’s why she sells lipstick, eye shadow, eyeliner, and much more. She believes that all of these products, in whatever color the wearer chooses, can be worn together.

Another rule that Deere breaks is don’t mix too many colors. Anyone who knows Deere knows that colors are her thing. She is constantly rocking bright lips, eye shadow, liner, and hair. She never skimps on the colors and her flawless skin helps to pull her look off. Deere understands that other people want to rock the colors too. That’s why she offers such a variety when it comes to her makeup line. Deere sells lipsticks that come in shades of orange, purple, blue, red, and so much more. She also sells eye shadow and liners of the same color.

Finally, Deere broke the rule of wearing different patterns. Deere wears whatever she wants and she makes it look good. Just like colors, Deere feels that the patterns can be diverse as well. Deere likes to put together others who have broken these same rules and show them off. Deere has a look book section of Lime Crime where photographs of users are displayed. Here others can draw inspiration from them.

Overall, Deere is a woman who knows exactly who she is and isn’t afraid to show it. She wants others to be able to express themselves as well. That’s why she has put her whole heart and soul into Lime Crime makeup. Her makeup line is more than just products, they help people to form a lifestyle. Deere sees makeup as an art form and wants all of her followers to be able to express themselves, be bold, and turn heads. That’s what Lime Crime makeup is all about.

Nobilis Health Expresses Track Record 3rd Qtr Results

Northstar Healthcare, as part of their planned expansion of services and facilities has changed their name to the Nobilis Health Corporation. President of Nobilis Health Corp, Harry Fleming explained the name change as an avoidance in confusing companies and organizations using the Northstar name for services and products in the United States. The stock symbol TSX is used for trading. Northstar/Nobilis owns, operates, and manages at least five surgery centers in Houston, TX, Dallas, TX, and Scottsdale, AZ. Northstar/Nobilis also owns and oversees an acute care hospital in Houston, TX, two imaging facilities and an urgent care clinic in Houston, TX. Nobilis has a strong track record in mergers and acquisitions, recently acquiring 60% of the former Freedom Pain Hospital in Scottsdale, AZ. Investment analysts are quoted as saying, and Nobilis is viewed as an undervalued investment in an arena that is constantly growing in demand. The third quarter results indicated a rapid growth with record revenues of $17.2 million. Nobilis Health is building on their marketing campaigns through website expansion of information, local marketing, improved in-house call center, combining professional marketing tactics, Facebook and recruiting professionals to drive each of the programs to success.

Quest Ventures Issues Acquisition Proposal To Slyce, Inc.

In 2014, a Toronto based startup called Slyce, Inc. raised more than $10 million in capital to develop a new visual search on slyce.it technology for retail use. The algorithm they developed collects a mountain of data regarding minute features of almost any product or object and then matches it with millions of online images to create a match. Obviously visual search technology is not a new thing, but Slyce’s revolutionary algorithm takes it to a whole new level.

Slyce’s algorithm allows it to measure and sift through a mountain of individualized features to come up with an exact product match – from the length of a belt loop to the distance between two buttons. Slyce technology relies on features that are fixed and do not change on a product, and yet are unique to that individual product. In 2014, they tested their product with 6 of the top 20 retail chains in the US and are reported to have contracts with as many as 10 of the top 20 chains.

But retailers are not the only ones showing an avid interest in what Slyce has to offer. In mid-November 2015, Slyce, Inc. Board of Directors received a letter from James Beals, CEO of Quest Ventures – a private venture capital company – offering 85 cents per share, in cash, to acquire the company. That price represents a premium of greater than 485.17% over the unaffected common stock price of Slyce, Inc. as of the day before the letter was sent.

Beals has made it clear that his intention is to grow the Slyce, Inc. valuation as a private company and to further invest $35M for R&D. He believes that Slyce offers unique applications for both commercial and defense based use. After a number of unsuccessful attempts to reach Slyce CEO Mark Elfenbein, Beals issued a letter directly to the Slyce, Inc. Board of Directors stating his intentions to acquire Slyce, Inc. and what it was he had to offer. He stated that his preference would have been to be able to work with Slyce on a “confidential and cooperative basis” but had been unable to open meaningful channels of communication with Slyce, Inc.

As of yet, Slyce, Inc. has not responded to Quest Venture’s offer, but it’s not hard to envision the many military applications that could be developed from Slyce’s technology. While there has been no direct indication of this, that could potentially be the reason for reticence on the part of Slyce, Inc. to respond to Quest Venture’s offer.

Improving Wikipedia Writing and Editing Skills

Everybody who has ever contributed to Wikipedia in one form in another already knows that it is difficult to have edits to be accepted some times, and much more hard to get an entire new article written and approved. Moderators always have to look over new submission, and many people feel like they shouldn’t try writing on Wikipedia anymore.
This common rejection and revision is because the writers are probably not familiar with the format on Wikipedia or all of the rules. Here are a few tips that everybody should know before they start writing Wikipedia articles.

Always be short in writing. Never try to extrapolate on things that do not directly adhere to the topic at hand. People want Wikipedia articles to be short so they can readily access the information that they are looking to access.

Learn the format that an encyclopedia should be in because all of the articles on Wikipedia are supposed to be similar to an encyclopedia. Either a writer can look at Wikipedia to learn the correct format, or they can look at a modern encyclopedia to learn what the correct format of a Wikipedia work.

Get Your Wiki writes and translates articles for people who need an article written but simply do not have the time to write or maybe their time would be better served elsewhere. Most all people can afford Get Your Wiki, especially people who run businessesd or websites and need content for their page on Wikipedia so more people can find more about it.

Images should be near the text that is being portrayed or depicted by the picture. Do not put a picture in an area where it does not make sense to put it. If you are putting the picture in the article to educate readers, make it near the text that it correlates to.

Get Your Wiki is great for people who are not very familiar with the format of Wikipedia. Clients are even able to write their own articles and send them to Get Your Wiki for approval. Get Your Wiki can be contacted at www.getyourwiki.com and is guaranteed to give you a free quote in no more than one business day.

The Wikipedia Manual of Style is very important to read. Many writers do not look over the rules, guidelines, suggestions, and tips that all Wikipedians need to look over. This is a very important part of learning the correct form.
