I’m Sure Fox News Regrets Interview With Thor Halvorssen, Founder Of Human Rights Foundation

There was this really strange interview with this wicked smart guy named Thor Halvorssen on Fox News the other day. It was really strange because it seemed that he thought he was invited onto the network to talk about something completely different. But it was clear that Fox News was trying to use the interview to tear down Bernie Sanders, instead of talking about authoritarian dictators and their human rights violations around the globe, something that Thor Halvorssen is an expert in.

Thor Halvorssen founded the Human Rights Foundation in order to take down dictators, expose corruption and help those who have been victimized by political crimes. It makes sense. Thor Halvorssen’s father was once falsely imprisoned by the dictator of Venezuela and tortured. His release was secured by human rights organizations and that had a profound impact on Thor. So it seems that Thor Halvorssen thought he was on the air to talk about his area of expertise.

Instead, the conservative news network decided to steer the interview toward presidential politics. They showed Bernie Sanders, said that he wanted America to be a socialist country, that his views were so extreme that even far left Democrats were slamming him, and that his version of socialism is a violation of basic human rights. Now, Thor Halvorssen doesn’t care what side of the political aisle you are from, he only cares about spreading open societies full of accountability and equality. So he’s visibly stunned at the questions. He attempts to sort it out.

He tries over and over again to qualify that statement — socialism is a violation of basic human rights. He keeps trying to separate the two, saying that socialism itself does not violate human rights but the people powering any form of government, including socialism, are capable of violating human rights. But when the Fox News anchor grows irritated at the fact that Thor Halvorssen won’t help her tear down Bernie Sanders, Thor swings his hammer — he proclaims his support for Bernie Sanders. It’s a jaw-dropping moment and one that, I’m sure, the Fox News network regrets.

Coriant Expands its Cloud Based Netowrking technology

The name Coriant may not be one on the lips of the general public, but this new entrant to the networking and optical data transfer market has recently been making a splash in the industry with its major technological achievements. Coriant was established from the optical networking department of Siemens, but has recently looked to develop new areas of technology for customers to enjoy; these new technological areas include the major advances made in cloud networking through its Groove developments. Not only will this new cloud data storage technology assist clients in storing larger levels of data, but will also offer major energy savings of up to 70 percent on existing cloud systems.

The release of the Groove Cloud technology coincided with the appointment of new CEO Shaygan Kheradpir, who has a long history of technological innovation for the many different companies he has worked for in a three decade long career. Kheradpir is an expert in developing new technologies after he spent a large amount of his early career working in research and development for GTE Labs and Verizon.

Shaygan Kheradpir could have spent the entirety of his career working in research and development, but instead looked to challenge himself with a move into the business side of the industries he has worked in. Kheradpir looked to develop his business skills by conducting a review of the IT department of Verizon, which resulted in lowered costs falling far below the industry average. Kheradir also developed a number of new areas of business during his time as a board member of the financial giant Barclays, which included one of the first mobile payment options alongside many other technological innovations now used throughout the banking industry.

Coriant have grown quickly over the course of their life since being spun out of the Siemens company, but has developed to employ around 3,000 employees. The company is looking to develop itself as a major competitor for the traditional optical networking companies working throughout the world, which the parent company of Marlin Equity Partners believes can be achieved under the leadership of Shaygan Kheradpir.

A Global Recession Is Almost Certain According To Investor George Soros

The economists that spend their days tracking the health of the world’s economy don’t usually agree with each other. The Wall Street elite try to explain the chaos in equities and global currencies that has been going on this year by throwing numbers and facts at investors. But there is one economic genius that doesn’t sugar-coat the fact that all the economic signs point to a global recession. That genius is George Soros. The eighty-five-year-old Soros is the guy that predicted the British pound would have to be devalued back in 1981. Soros was right and pocketed a cool 1 billion dollars when he shorted the pound against the dollar.

Mr. Soros is predicting on Bloomberg another major economic disaster, and once again, there are economists that agree with him, and economists that claim the sign Soros is seeing won’t turn into a bubble-bursting financial fiasco. Those economists say the economic turmoil in China doesn’t compare to the 1997 Asian debt crisis, but Soros thinks those soothsayers are sweeping the signs under the rug. They don’t like to predict a downtick on Wall Street, and they certainly don’t want to tell the world of market mayhem and the impending global recession.

Bur George Soros is not one to paint any picture but the real one. The S&P 500 began 2016 with the worst performance in its history. Mr. Soros said the United States goes into a recession about every five years. It has been seven years since the last recession, so the U.S. is overdue. The economic forecasters are saying the U.S. GDP will grow by 3.5 percent or more in 2016, but they aren’t reading the signs correctly. The main contributor for the next recession has been setting the stage for it for the last two years. China’s faltering economy has sent Brazil and other trading partners into recession mode already, and Soros believes the other countries are one step away from calling their economies stagnant.

China is trying to build a gigantic fixed asset bubble that isn’t contributing to the country’s GDP growth, according to Soros. He also said China’s currency is overvalued, and he is betting it will depreciate in 2016. Shanghai equity prices are down 40 percent over the last two years, and Chinese rail freight volume keeps dropping by 10.5 year after year. China is telling the world that their economy will grow by 6.5 percent over the next five years, But Soros says the Chinese government will have to pull a financial rabbit out of a black hat in order for that to happen.

Soros expects more stress on corporate earning as the global economic growth continues to slow down. He also thinks real estate values and equity prices can no longer be supported by incomes and GDP. All the signs are there for a 2008 type recession. Soros says it’s time to believe them.

OrganoGold is Something Special for Healthy Coffee Drinkers

Organo sells Organo Gold gourmet coffee and tea. It suffuses these beverages with Certified Organic Ganoderma Lucidum, better known as reishi or lingzhi mushroom. Chinese healers have used Ganoderma for at least 2,000 years, and it has many beneficial health effects, as documented by modern medical studies. That led the Chinese to call Ganoderma the “King of Herbs.” According to prominent nutritionist Dr Bob Rakowski, Ganoderma strengthens the immune system, lowers inflammation, helps rid the body of toxins, promotes akalization and increases the amount of oxygen delivered to body cells. Therefore, everybody can benefit from taking Ganoderma.

Bernardo tells us that healthy Organo Gold coffee comes in the flavors: Black Coffee, King of Coffee, Cafe Supreme, Cafe Mocha and Cafe Latte. Tea drinkers can choose from Green Tea, Red Tea and Black Ice. For people who don’t enjoy either beverage, Organo Gold also offers Hot Chocolate.

Founded in 2008, Organo is the latest company created by Bernardo Chua. Chua grew up in the Philippines, and learned of the health benefits of Ganoderma there. Prior to founding Organo Gold, he worked with Gano Excel, running the branch in the Philippines. It also focused on promoting products with Ganoderma. He helped expand Gano Excel into Hong Kong, Canada and the United States. He now serves as the CEO of Organo. Organo is based in Vancouver, Canada.

In 2015, the National Consumer Affairs Foundation in the Philippines gave Chua its prestigious Dangal ng Bayan award, which reognizes Filipino businesses bringing world-class products to the global marketplace. They described Chua as an “Outstanding Global Entrepreneur.” The Napoleon Hill Foundation gave Chua its Gold Medal.

Organo Gold currently sells its products in 44 different countries, and has over 400,000 active distributors. In 2013 Direct Selling News said it was the 55th largest network marketing company, with sales of $215 million.

Ganoderma has a listing in the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia and Therapeutic Compendium. The mushroom produces ganoderic acids with a structure similar to steroid hormones. Medical science has documented various beneficial health effects. It contains beta glucans and various polysaccharides that promote immune function. It’s also an anti-inflammatory with positive effects on asthma.

The mushroom grows readily in both temperate and tropical forests. It tends to grow at the base or on the stumps of trees, especially maple. It’s grown commercially on logs or beds of woodchips. It has a bitter taste, and so is usually prepared as a tea or a soup.

George Soros Predicts That The European Union Is On The Road To Collapsing.

George Soros is a famous business person and philanthropist, who claims that his success in business makes him obliged to speak out on sensitive matters that others fear talking about. George Soros was born in Hungary, where he fled to England due to government oppression before he moved on to America. George Soros is usually called upon by international media to give his economic analyst view of different situations and was recently interviewed by Gregor Peter Schmitz of the German magazine, WirtschaftsWoche. This interview was mainly about the current state of the European Union and the possible outcome. According to George Soros, the European Union is on the verge of collapse due to the many problems the union is facing at the moment.
George Soros identified on Bloomberg.com that the Syrian crisis as one of the major issues the European Union has to deal with if it wants to stay afloat. The war in Syria is generating a lot of refugees who are looking refuge in other European nations. Despite nations like Germany, whose chancellor, Angela Merkel, is the chair of the European Union welcoming the refugees into their countries wholeheartedly, there are some like Hungary and Poland, which have resorted to a no refugee policy. This brings back progress though the only real solution is to bring lasting peace to Syria.

The issue of increased Syrian refugees is backed up by another problem of immigrants. For many years, Europe has been a hot cake to illegal immigrants from the third world and developing countries. The increased number of immigrants recently has even posed a challenge to the economy of European nations as it is currently. With the current unstable economic state, most countries and can not cater for all the immigrants entering their countries. For this reason, Angela Merkel, the chair of the European Union introduced an asylum seeking a policy that allows a member of the union to receive a sustainable number of immigrants from time to time.

Another major issue is the instability of the European currency, the euro. With the current Chinese instigated global crisis, the euro is affected. Its value has significantly reduced in the recent past. With Britain trying to pull out of the union, the value of this currency is will even be under more threat. The European Union has no option but first to solve its internal crisis like that of Syria, to at least try and save the euro.

But that will not be enough, the Russian inversion to Ukraine is even more threatening and needs to be addressed first. Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, seems to be taking advantage the situation to want to take control of the Union and all European leaders should be cautious of him. Internal conflicts affected the economy of the Union as a whole as it cripples regional trade. Greece also has to be saved from its economic crisis so that it can join hands with other European nations to fight the other problems and prevent the collapse of the union.
