Can Devco Help Rebuild An Older Community?

Devco can rebuild older communities with loans that are offered by their financial department. They work with cities that are in need of development cash, and they have a way of planning all these developments to make the cities look that much better. They are trying to help these cities in New Jersey to change old areas that have high crime and high unemployment. The Press of Atlantic City has an article about this, and they have shown that DEVCO is a good way to make this work. They know how to raise tax revenue, and they know how to handle the planning for the development.

“There are many things that have to be done in order to make sure that these communities can come back from the dead” says Devco’s Chris Paladino. They need to have new jobs, and they need to have a large beacon that is going to attract other businesses. The only way to make sure that this is going to get done is to come to Devco and ask for help. Devco is very good at this work, and they can plan exactly what will happen when the development is done. Someone who is in need of a new job will find one either in the casino or in a surrounding business.

The community will start to rebound because all of its people will have jobs, and then they will be able to get more jobs for other people in the family. Families are going to be able to have jobs for everyone, and the schools will start to improve along with all the services just because they have been put together with tax dollars earned by the development. That is the magic of the Devco plans, and it is why they offer loans along with their planning services to make sure cities in New Jersey will recover.

Lightning Research In Venezuela Open Doors To Safety

Lightning research in Venezuela is the subject of an article and video from the Telegraph, and it shows how much needs to be done to help improve weather safety around the world. There are a lot of things around the world that happen because weather researchers do not understand how weather patterns formed. They cannot warn people, but they are learning a lot from the weather in Venezuela around Lake Maracaibo.
The lake has a lot of lake effect lightning every year because of the air that is coming off the mountains, and even the locals are being questioned about how it impacts them. This lightning happens 300 times a year, and it could happen up to 200 times an hour. There are so many strikes every year that they are hard to count, and there is a lot to look at when researchers like Norka Luque pull up by the side of the lake.

It is very important that the Venezuelan government is keeping the door open for more research, and the people who live around the lake are there to help the researchers understand what it means to live with such a weather system. The nice people and the openness of the government are important for weather safety around the world, and anyone who wants to learn more can come to see the lightning for themselves. Checking out the the Dateas video will be enlightening for many.

A Well Known Billionaire Sells Equity, Buys Gold

A billionaire investor and trader, George Soros, who is known for making a $1 billion dollar profit from a single trade in 1992, has recently been reported by The Wall Street Journal to exit his stock positions and enter into gold and gold-miner indexes. His fund manages upwards of $30 billion, which makes the move into gold ripple as a warning sign to other investors.

Moving funds into gold is seen as a “defensive” trade and is usually done when the state of the market or economy becomes uncertain or when investors believe something bad is on the horizon. The investment into gold indicates that currencies are likely to lose value and that the stock market is going to become volatile or even crash in some sectors. To protect investments investors move money into precious metals, like gold or silver, because they tend to retain their value and are “safer” investments in times of uncertainty. In fact, over 1/3 of the stocks held by the Soros fund were moved into gold.

A Bearish George Soros Is Trading Again

The billionaire fund manager’s bearish thesis is based partly on distrust in the Chinese market as well as uncertainty in the European Union. George Soros even believed that the collapse of the European Union is possible; highlighting the financial stress of Greece, the migration crisis, and the possible exit of the EU by the UK.

Less recently, Soros has been largely quiet, allowing other officials in the Soros fund to manage the investments. This makes his personal involvement in the move into gold more noteworthy, as he usually only actively trades when large losses are made, or large economic changes are being foretold. One of Soros’s former chief strategists, Stan Druckenmiller, was also reported from Bloomberg to be bullish on gold and had the majority of his currency allocation in the precious metal.

With the FOMC meeting coming out Wednesday, we may see a bullish increase in gold and gold miner indexes as uncertainty and speculation rise as investors have eyes on the Federal Reserve rate hike.

Together with George Soros’s move into gold and uncertainty spreading through the US and global economy, we may expect a large volume of the market and other investors to follow suit. If true, this would drive gold prices up, likely passing the $1300/oz highs of the year.

Food Shortages Creating Problems For Venezuelan Families

The severe food shortages are creating a major problem for Venezuelan families. The regime of Hugo Chavez implemented a program where schools would serve meals to children. These schools would serve government subsidized foodstuffs and would be funded by the government. With subsidized foods now becoming increasingly scarce and schools having their funding cut drastically, many more children are now going hungry.
Parents like Jose Manuel Gonzlez, are now faced with a difficult choice. They can send their children to school and have them hungry. Or they can leave them at home where they might be able to feed them themselves. Other parents meanwhile are just choosing to let their kids sleep at home and relax because there is no food found at the school nor at home.

Many children are now being left at home instead of going to school, and a lot of them are going hungry. Even the ones that do have access to food many are not getting enough calories. Parents are being forced to share their limited food among their children and among themselves. Many of the poor people in Venezuela are not consistently not eating three times a day. Gonzalez says “we do not have enough food for three meals a day”.

One mother describes that her child has not drunk milk for almost three years now. A staggering statistic shows that almost 3/4 of the population cannot afford to buy and eat eggs on a regular basis. Meat is now considered a luxury in the country.

Andy Wirth’s Goal: Make Squaw Valley Number One in the World

Squaw Valley is known for its terrain. Unfortunately, people stop visiting the area in the springtime and business slows down. To make matters more difficult, the mountain destination marketplace has become more competitive over the years. Resorts around the U.S. are creating different activities year-round in an attempt to attract tourists.

With public input, the ultimate goal of Squaw Valley is to make it an attractive destination in the eyes of tourists, according to Andy Wirth’s op-ed. Another goal is to create about 1,400 jobs at the resort. A third objective of the project is to generate more than $25 million in annual tax revenue. This will benefit the entire county and will help fund various important public services. Read more: Interview with Squaw Valley CEO Andy Wirth | Tahoetopia

Some of the year-round opportunities that will be created include a Squaw Creek Interpretive Park that offers unique educational experiences and miles of new trails for biking and hiking. There also would be a Mountain Adventure Camp that features world-class training facilities for athletes, all while preserving the mountain landscape community’s values. Some of the activities included would be zip lines, rock climbing, and many other adventure activities. Learn more about Andy Wirth: http://andywirth.com/and http://www.auburnjournal.com/article/10/28/15/another-view-community-input-shaping-squaw-valley%E2%80%99s-future

Since the project idea was introduced, it has been reduced by 50 percent. Greater than 90 percent of the project will be completed on 82 acres of asphalt parking lots. Buildings may only be built up to 30 feet in order to preserve the mountain views. Read more: Just Breathe: Andy Wirth on the Upswing in Tahoe

According to the plan, extensive restoration of Squaw Creek and contributions of over $1 million yearly to environmental initiatives will be necessary. Over 50% of the area for the project has been dedicated to open space. Also, more than 3,000 acres of mountain land are going to be used in the project.

Andy Wirth, who is the CEO of Squaw Valley, has worked tirelessly to make Squaw Valley the number one tourist destination worldwide. Wirth is also a huge contributor to environmental and community service organizations within the vicinity of Lake Tahoe. After nearly dying in a skydiving accident, Andy co-founded an Ironman team called “Wounded Warrior Support.”

Yeonmi Park’s Escape And Depiction Of North Korea

Yeonmi Park, the author of In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom notes that she did not know what the word freedom was and its concept. She had also never heard of it. To her, having food was the happiest thing.
Her story begins on March 31, 2007. That is the time she began her journey out of North Korea. Yeonmi and her mother crossed the icy Yalu River in the middle of the night. She arrived in China without a clear plan of her next course of action. At the time, Yeonmi was only 13. It marked the start of a distressing journey of several years. She went across China, through the large Golbi desert before eventually reaching South Korea using a plane via the Mongolian border. This information was originally posted on reason.com. More details can be found through this link https://reason.com/blog/2015/11/15/yeonmi-parks-north-korean-defector-story

Yeonmi’s journey was characterized with starvation and constant abuse. Suicide was never far away. She survived the journey due to her remarkable strength and desire to live at the time. Yeonmi’s father joined them in the journey. However, he died within a few months due to untreated cancer. Speaking to Reason TV, Yeonmi noted that her father died without knowing the kind of democracy that exists in the world as well as the food that is available. She added that if she could have had the kind of items American throw away, she would have no reason to run away from North Korea.

Her story has charmed thousands of readers and propelled her to stardom across the world. However, she has had her detractors led by Pyongyang that accuses her along with her mother as agents of the US. Other critics point out that they have established inaccuracies on how she depicts North Korea and discrepancies in her life narrative.

Yeonmi insists that she knows the facts to her story. She notes that some of the details were changed to protect her family members that reside in North Korea. Other incidents like the sexual abuse have been covered in shame. She says she did not want to disclose that she was raped at 13. According to her, other misstatements have been caused by her bad command of the English language. Yeonmi points out that she has the facts on North Korea and the oppression cannot be silenced.

The Healing Magic of Shea Butter

All it takes to see products advertising shea butter as an active ingredient is quick trip down the lotion aisle of the local drugstore. But what is shea butter, really? Shea butter is actually a fat that has been extracted from the nuts of shae trees that grow in Africa. The butter is usually an off-white color with a distinct smell similar to that of cocoa butter. But what does this have to do with the lotion aisle? Well, shea butter contains Vitamin A and Vitamin E, both important vitamins for the healing of scars and reduction of stretch marks. Shea is also a hydrating product that can be used to help soothe or heal dry skin. Shea butter can also be used as a light sunblock, as it does offer some U.V protection. Shea butter is a healing wonder for dry, cracked, scarred, or blemished skin.

EuGenia Shea is a company that produces and sells shea butter that promises to contain 95% Shea content, much more than your average shea butter product. And, with their commitment to working with female-owned cooperatives in Ghana, they may be helping to heal more than just your skin. EuGenia is the brainchild of Harvard graduate Naa-Sakle Akuete who wanted to help her mother grow her business using a humanitarian, female-oriented, sustainable approach to the typical business model.

EuGenia Shea comes beautifully packaged and ready to use. But the best part of purchasing the product, aside from the fading of that pesky scar you’ve been using cover-up on for years, is knowing that by purchasing it, you are directly supporting women in Ghana. Portions of the profits for EuGenia’s sales go directly to the cooperatives and help pay for schooling and other necessities for the families of the women who harvest this healing butter from the nut of the Shea Tree. So, shea butter may have the magic to heal in more ways than one.
