George Soros Reveals Why The FED Interest Hike Was Wrong

George Soros is a Democrat die hard. When he dismissed Trump as a war monger, people took note. George Soros has gone ahead and accused Trump of promoting the activities of ISIS by giving them fodder. The current drive by Trump to ban Muslims from the US is both illegal and counterproductive. It is only going to radicalise more youths.

When George Soros speaks of global issues, you better listen despite your political stance. He was, after all, a refugee for 15 years and is a Holocaust survivor. Soros says the current political rhetoric by Trump and Ted Cruz is wrong and should stop. The time of America hiding behind its insecurities of race and privilege should take a back seat.

George Soros is of the opinion that Angela Merkel can and will save Europe. He was happy she recently opened Germany to more than 1 million refugees and expects them to adjust to the new reality well. It was a divisive move but Germany is today a regional power in Europe and needs to act that role.

The Eurozone is currently faced with more than six issues that need attention. The Ukrainian issue according to Soros should be addressed 1st.The country is still under a civil war and has seen tens of thousands die and millions displaced. Its economy has come to a standstill and people are clamouring for change.

George Soros has said the migrant crisis can be solved by a unified approach to the crisis. European countries need to come together and have a plan on how to handle the refugees. Assuming they won’t come is naïve as the Syrian crisis shows no signs of abating. It is a war that was started by the West and they need to take responsibility.

 

According to Soros, Eurozone should have one asylum processing centre if it wants to survive the current crisis. It must abolish the 28 patchwork of centres as it is very easy for outsiders to take advantage. The Paris attack as a result of laxity in handling refugees. They have felt unwanted and have resorted to other ways to announce their presence.

George is of the opinion that Brexit is not a good idea. He has criticised the European leaders calling fro Britain to leave terming them as misleading. According to Soros, Britain depends on the Eurozone for exports and is better off politically and economically in Britain.

George started his forays into the stock market in the 50s straight from London. He founded Soros Fund Management in 1969.It has become known as the best performing hedge fund of all time with a 30.30 ratio. He is today retired and runs his charity work.

Charles Koch and The 2016 Campaign

There are many issues happening in the US today, yet many of the most pressing issues of our time are not being addressed by the candidates in the 2016 Republican campaign. That’s a fact that troubles billionaire businessman and philanthropist Charles Koch, of Koch Industries. Koch recently gave a rare interview to The Guardian in which he spoke to those issues as well as to his role in the campaign.

Koch, who is prepared to contribute $9 million to the republican campaign, wants to make it clear that he is not the “evil guy” he is sometimes portrayed as in the media. He is, rather, a liberal in the classical sense, and one of his heroes is the 19th century British politician William Gladwell.

So where does Koch come down on the views of the republican frontrunners? Koch is taking a dim view of Trump’s recent pronouncements on the place of Muslims in the US. Trump has suggested that Muslims here must officially register with the US government, but Koch points out that such an action is in opposition to the the role of the US as a free society.

The other republican front runner, Ted Cruz, has even more extreme views on how to handle Islamic terrorism. Cruz has been quoted as saying we should carpet bomb every ISIS location, hitting them hard until the sand “glows in the dark.” According to Koch, such an action is not a solution. Given that there are 1.6 million Muslim people in the world, bombing everyone would be a highly extreme action and utterly unreasonable as a solution to the problem of terrorism.

Another issue that Charles Koch pointed out is missing from the current campaign discussions is the role of the US in Iraq and Afghanistan. He discussed the fact that while the US has had a presence in these countries for years, we have seen little in the way of real progress as far as terrorism and a peaceful solution to our problems goes. Yet there is little mention of these major issues in the campaign, and that, according to Koch, is a real problem.

Given all this, it’s a measure of Koch’s concern about US politics that he is still planning on endorsing one of the candidates as the campaign continues. Whoever that ends up being, we’ll all just have to wait and see.

Avi Weisfogel’s Tips On Avoiding Having A Baby With Cleft Lip And How To Help Others With The Condition

Cleft lip is one of the most common birth defects, affecting over 4,000 babies in the U.S. alone. Less common, but more devastating, the cleft palate can lead to a host of issues. Babies can be born with a cleft lip, a cleft palate, or both, depending on the severity of the situation. And there is no known cause. This defect can strike any family at any time, but there are some precautions you can take to help avoid this condition in a newborn:

Don’t smoke. Women who smoke carry a higher rate of cleft lip with or without cleft palate than women who do not smoke. Doctors have not figured out the link between smoking and cleft lip, but they know it exists.

Women with diabetes have a higher chance of having a baby with cleft lip. Know your family history. You may be at risk of Type 2 Diabetes with weight gain.

Certain medications also make it more likely to have a baby with cleft lip. If you are on medication, consult with a doctor to know the risks.

Babies born in the U.S. are lucky because they have access to surgery that can help the condition. Dental surgeons can attach the lip and the cleft palate in order to avoid a host of problems associated with the birth defect. But surgery is recommended within the first 18 months of life, meaning that many babies born with the condition in impoverished areas around the world do not have a chance of getting the surgery.

That is why Avi Weisfogel is stepping up a Go Fund Me campaign. The successful New Jersey dentist knows about the birth defect all to well, and he wants to help those in need who may otherwise miss out on the opportunity for surgery. Avi Weisfogel runs a very successful practice in Old Bridge, New Jersey, where he helps patients every day. But his reach is limited in New Jersey, so his GoFundMe benefits Operation Smile.

Avi Weisfogel takes hours of continuing education every year in order to help his patients with the newest information. That’s why he knows that cleft lip and palate surgery is incredibly beneficial to those with the birth defect. He knows that Operation Smile uses the latest innovations to help those afflicted with the condition around the world, donating surgeries to those in poor communities worldwide. Follow Avi on Twitter and Facebook to stay up to date on his campaign.
