When it comes to technology and fashion, both have a wow factor in them. Together they have grown over the years bringing on board newer selling ideas. Taking a look at the technology end and it unfolds the music experience and its growth from the boom box in the 70s, the cassette player in the 80s, the Walkman experience enjoyed in the 90s and fast forward to the iPod wave. The change never stops. Such is the case in the fashion world and some designers have worked the idea of literally fashioning technology in their designs. One such designer is Anouk Wipprechyt, a Dutch national who through her playful experiments, is recognized for her avant-garde masterpieces. Some of her works include, self-painting dresses, drink-making collections, the DareDroid as well as the Psuedomorphs.
Away from the literal merging of fashion and technology and enter the world of protection and alternative use of clothing. Terese Alstin and Anna Haupt have designed a cutting-edge safety invention, the cyclist airbags. The neatly crafted neck-wear design is fashioned to promote safety. In the same spirit, one Kevin Cannon and Ashwin Rajan have developed the Frontline Gloves meant for use by firefighters as protective gear. Interestingly, there are some creators who have stepped out to redefine clothing as more than just an outfit. Soledad Martin is one such designer. Her latest work, in the prototype stage, shoes that generate energy to charge a mobile phone while running or while walking. Truly such creations are inspiring. Imagine a world where both industries work together and the possibilities are endless.

Investment banking is a private brokerage firm that provides various financial-related services to individuals, organizations, corporations, and governments. Investment banks are responsible for helping companies raise capital and serve as the intermediary in the issuance of publicly traded commodities. Moreover, investment banking also provides advisory services to companies during amalgamations and restructuring. They also offer supplementary services such as securities trading.
Unlike commercial banking sector, investment banking does not accept deposits. Upon the endorsement of Glass-Steagall Act of 1993, the U.S. upholds a separation between the banking segments. However, some industrialized nations have traditionally not supported the separation between the two sectors. As part of Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, the Volcker Rules assumes some functional separation between the two banking segments.
Investment banking is categorized into the sell side and the buy side. The sell side trades securities for other securities and cash whereas the buy side provides financial advice to institutions. Buy side entities include unit funds, life insurance companies, hedge funds, and private equity funds. Furthermore, an investment bank may also be split into the public and private sectors. While the public sector deals with publicly disclosed information, the private segment deals with insider information. Importantly, the United States requires that financial advisors must subject to the U.S. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority and must be licensed as a broker-dealer.

One of the reasons Kyle Bass has been down on China since October of 2015 is that he’s got millions and millions tied up in short-selling ventures betting against the Yuan, China’s version of the “dollar”. Bass thinks that poor credit decisions among China’s banks are going to force the country into a currency devaluation that will happen in the next three years, with–according to Bass–a forty to fifty percent chance of happening this year. If there are other funds or investors who would have put money in Asian markets, they’re likely to refrain from doing so considering Bass’ predictions.
Kyle Bass did s short-sell investment like this prior America’s 2008 financial meltdown, and became famous for it. He bet that the poor financial practices of US banks would result in collapse, and was proven correct when the sub-prime lending bubble burst. Is Bass correct about China right now, or is he scrambling to push people from a public place into restraining investments based on his own ideals? Bass points to the 3 trillion dollar investment bonds market which is currently freezing up, according to him. Is he right about that, or is he just trying to further incite investors into restraining their investiture?
He’s in collusion with Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, as referenced by his inability to criticize even her worst financial decisions. De Kirchner is the president of Argentina, and by most accounts a socialistic tyrant. The woman has defaulted Argentina twice in only thirteen years; yet Kyle Bass always supports her decisions. That in itself is suspicious; but not nearly so suspicious as Bass’ organization “CAD”, the Coalition for Affordable Drugs. CAD uses public sympathy, petitions, and lawsuits to force big-ticket pharmaceutical companies into dropping drug prices which destroys their stock, and allows Bass to short sell it. If Bass isn’t above stealing opportunity from the infirm, why would he stop at hoodwinking investors such that they invest according to his ideals?
