George Soros, New Movement

George Soros, one of the greatest investors of all time, has recently come back into trading on the stock market. Whenever he lays down his hand on the stock market, everyone listens, so this news has woken people upon the state of the economy. At one point George Soros bet against the housing market, which ended up netting him one billion dollars in profit. Now, his move was to buy gold and shares in gold miners, and this means that he doesn’t believe in the current economy and rather put his money into gold which will keep its value.

Here’s How George Soros’s Latest Predictions Have Played Out

That move doesn’t say anything good about the future of the economy, as George Soros is usually right where he puts his money. George Soros previously stated that he felt the current financial market situation reminds him of 2008. That statement is something that puts everyone in a state of alert. He sees the problems coming from overseas this time, though. He has said to the Wall Street Journal “China continues to suffer from capital flight and has been depleting its foreign currency reserves while other Asian countries have been accumulating foreign currency. … China is facing internal conflict within its political leadership, and over the coming year, this will complicate its ability to deal with financial issues.”

With so much trust in his movement, he is a leader regarding where to put your money in this economy. Only time will tell if Soros is right this time, but in his previous venture, he has proven himself a rather trustworthy person to follow, a real leader of the stock market.

New Challenges With Energy

Due to the recent economic crisis in Venezuela, residents are facing desperate times. According to Open Corporates, energy is being rationed. Residents can only use electricity at certain times of the day and for a certain period of time.  However, if this were true, then how are government officials able to provide electricity to their homes and offices? Granted, there are many public offices that have been asked to close for a few days during the week in order to save electricity. Even if the offices are closed, there will still be electricity used as the people will simply use it at home, predicted Adrian Jose Velasquez. Many people can’t imagine living in a country that has a large oil supply and dealing with some of the difficulties that the people in Venezuela are facing on a daily basis.

Hit the Beach with JustFab Swimsuits

A bathing suit is the most controversial piece of clothing, and has been throughout history. Women used to receive tickets if their suits were too revealing, and nowadays, it is a fashion crime to be too covered up when on the beach or by the pool. This is also the most tolerant time in the history of the world, and all body types are not only accepted today, but appreciated for what they are. Basically, if you got it, flaunt it in a swimsuit! JustFab marries the idea of flaunting it with the appreciation for all body types, and has created a swimwear line that will have you dread the end of summer more than ever before.

Crochet One Piece

A lace-covered stomach and an open back allows for women to feel sexy yet comfortable in their own skin. An edgy black color tends to be the most popular for this piece, but it is also offered in a delicate white, too.

Mesh Halter High Neck Two Piece

By only covering you in the necessary places, this suit is ideal for sunbathing. The mesh additions allow for the freedom of movement and swimming without the worrying associated with a lack of support. Hot coral is the best seller, but that beloved black falls closely in line.

Mesh High waisted Bikini

Cutting your skin off at the waist creates an elongated appearance that will have people asking you which gym you belong to. This piece screams sophistication while maintaining a scandalous vibe, and is equipped with removable straps perfect for when you are feeling reserved or a little dangerous.

Banded Halter Bikini

A little sporty and a lot of fun, the banded halter bikini by JustFab is ideal for the beach. Volleyball, surfing, and a dive into the ocean are no match for this sturdy swimsuit, and the dual ties further validate that theory.

In a recent PR Newswire report the actions of Kevin Seawright and the RPS Solutions LLC. in the Baltimore real estate market were examined. Seawright and RPS want to see the Baltimore area on equal footing with the rest of the state’s percent of ownership of properties.

Kevin Seawright is a professional located in Baltimore diligently working in the fields of accounting and project management. He is experienced in the workings of local government and the complexities of the real estate markets in Baltimore and the Washington, D.C. areas.

He stated that it is his firm and long held belief that homeowners provide a stronger sense of commitment to neighborhoods and communities than renters, and by increasing the number of homeowners in any area he is helping to make that particular area in Baltimore safer and better suited to survive the numerous problems connected with city and inner city life.

RPS Solutions LLC. was co-founded by Seawright and coordinates and connects families or individuals seeking a home, often for the first time, with the appropriate mortgage lenders who can provide the necessary financing.

Alexei Beltyukov’s Solution To The Stagnating Russian Economy

The Russian economy has stagnated due to a number of factors. One of the key factors is the conflict in Ukraine in which the west accuses Russia of supporting rebels who wish to breakaway from Ukraine and join Russia instead. The supposed support of Russia to rebels has resulted in crippling sanctions that have harmed the economy. Investment has dried up and actually flowed out of the country.

One figure states that up to $70 billion dollars had left Russia in the first quarter of 2014. That compares with $63 billion dollars leaving the country for the entire previous fiscal year of 2013. Clearly the beginning of 2014 has not been good for Russia. Dipping oil prices have also hurt the economy and a falling Russian ruble has made even ordinary Russians feel the sting of the stagnating economy. The ruble is the currency of Russia.

Russia’s ruble has already dropped by about 9% compared to to the dollar in the first quarter of 2013. The dropping ruble, conflict in Crimea and the Eastern Ukrainian cities of Donetsk and Lugansk have further dampened the economy of Russia.

Trouble is looming for Russia’s economy but Russian entrepreneur Alexei Beltyukov believes he has a solution. Alexei Beltyukov believes that Russia’s entrepreneurs and startups are the future of the country and the cure for Russia’s economic woes. Mr. Beltyukov is one of the founders of the Skolkovo Foundation, which is a government sponsored organization that promotes entrepreneurship throughout the country. It provides assistance to Russian entrepreneurs in the form of business consultations, funding, networking, tax incentives and technology development.

Mr. Beltyukov is an entrepreneur himself and has started numerous ventures in Russia. His startups include a car repair shop chain called Mechanicus, a fuel production company called New Gas Technologies and even a financial investment company called Endemic Capital. Alexei Beltyukov believes that entrepreneurs will drive Russia’s economy back to a boom instead of the stagnation that country finds itself mired in. He believes that the government should do more to support entrepreneurs particularly in the fields of technology and computer science. Mr. Beltyukov believes that providing assistance which he lacked when he was growing up can help spur economic growth, create jobs and make Russia more competitive and stronger on the global front.  Read more about Alexei’s illustrious career at CrunchBase, and read more about his new initiative Solvy right at the source.

ClassDojo Disrupts the PTA

 

Until recently, school was an important part of the lives of students that, for the most part, did not include parents. Parents might drop their kids off at school and pick them up. A few parents might serve as monitors and helpers. Once a month or so, there was the traditional meeting of the PTA, and parents could meet with teachers then. However, they were otherwise excluded from their children’s day-to-day experiences in the classroom. ClassDojo changes that.

The mobile application ClassDojo is a communication platform that connects students, teachers and parents. During the school day it helps keep parents up to date on their child’s activities, academic or social. This might include pictures, instant messages, announcements and videos. It can translate into 35 languages.

When Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don co-founded ClassDojo in 2011, other applications were focusing on strictly educational approaches. Now their app is being used by teachers in over 85,000 schools in the United States, and by teachers in 180 more countries. That includes publlic and private and charter schools, usually from kindergarten to the 8th grade. The app helps to create a positive culture within school classrooms. With the parents knowing what is going on during school hours, that evening they can ask specific questions of their children, to help them deal with issues.

Although ClassDojo has yet to make any money, they have raised a total of $31 million in venture capital. They raised $21 million late in 2015 in a series B round. They are using this money to expand their team. Teachers receive ClassDojo free. It works on any iOS device, Android, Kindle Fire and all computers.

ClassDojo has partnered with Stanford University’s Project for Education Research That Scales center to produced five video animations on growth mindset. The videos will contain the ClassDojo characters students are already familiar with.

Growth mindset comes from research showing that when students are taught their brains are able to develop and grow, expanding their capacity to learn, they accept learning as a challenge. Teachers want to use this research to encourage their students, but don’t have established procedures for making growth mindset an intrinsic part of their classroom teaching. The aim of the five ClassDojo videos will be to serve as a resource to help those teachers while encouraging the students.
