The Unjust Demonization of George Soros

Billionaire philanthropist George Soros is the chairman of the Open Society Foundations, a network of organizations dedicated to supporting education, public health and a free press throughout the world. Electronic missives from these network agencies were among the most recent emails illegally obtained and released by Wikileaks.

Soros’ support of progressive causes such as prison reform, transgender rights, harm reduction and the legalization of recreational marijuana are no secret and have earned him the ire of right-wing political conservatives throughout the United States. In particular, Soros’ funding of human rights groups in Israel and Palestine has led to what can only be described as a wholesale demonization of his character by demagogues on the right. These demagogues, however, cannot make up their minds whether George Soros is acting against the interests of Israel, the Jewish state, or whether he’s part of a vast labyrinthine Jewish George Soros conspiracy that’s determined to take over the world.

Lies and Innuendoes

The attacks on George Soros emails are the latest round of lies and innuendoes that have targeted this prominent businessman. Soros was born in Budapest in 1930, and thus, he had the opportunity to witness two totalitarian regimes at an early age: Nazi domination and Communist dictatorship. His family was able to elude the concentration camps because his well-connected father disguised the family’s Jewish origins. After the War, Soros immigrated to the U.K. and attended the London School of Economics. Following his graduation, Soros immigrated to the United States and began working on Wall Street where he accumulated a fortune.

Glenn Beck’s Attacks

The conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck seems to bear a particularly strong malice toward Mr. Soros, which dates back long before the George Soros emails. In 2010, Beck produced a television show called “The World According to Soros” in which he characterized Soros as an evil “minence grise” whose Machiavellian manipulations are designed to bring about the fall of the United States and the rise of a New World Order. In portraying Soros this way, Beck seemed to be taking his cues from one of the most notorious pieces of anti-Semitic writing ever composed, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.”

Beck can’t seem to make up his mind, though, whether George Soros is intent upon subverting the world to a secret Jewish agenda or whether Soros is a Jew who hates other Jews. On Beck’s syndicated radio show, he accused Soros of having sent other Jews to the death camps at the height of World War II despite the fact that Soros was a boy of 13 at the time.

The conservative press’s reaction to the George Soros Wikileaks demonstrates that the far right still has the financier in their gun-sights. It’s inconceivable to them that a man might want to accumulate a fortune so that he could use the power that comes from that fortune for the betterment of mankind. The George Soros Wikileaks show that there is no George Soros conspiracy; there is only one man who believes it’s his responsibility to try and make a positive difference.

Michael Zomber Shows The World Japan

Japan is one of the world’s most important destinations. This group of islands lies off the coast of China, in a region that has fierce waves that can be hard to navigate. As a result of such waves, Japanese rulers were able to seal off their society for many centuries. They unilaterally declared that foreigners were only able to visit this land in very small numbers. While some have questioned this decision, the result is that the island was able to develop a unique and fascinating culture that has attracted much attention in recent decades.

He can also speak out about Japanese history in general, a history that he has long learned to admire both from a distance and from close up. His interest in this time frame remains one of passionate intensity and love of detail of all kinds. He aims to help others share just how much this time frame and this particular culture has to offer to all those who search it out.

A Life Of Passion

It was with love and admiration that Zomber approaches the world Japan. He knows that this world is one that people today can learn from and enjoy. His passion is one that has drawn him time and again. He wants to help people explore it and learn from it as much as he has in life.

How To Handle Bad Reviews

When people post bad reviews or write negative articles about your business, the consequences can be disastrous. In fact, negative information coming up about your business online has the power to sink your reputation and destroy your profits. Luckily, you aren’t a helpless victim of negative reviews or articles. There are ways that you can protect your business. However, it is important that you take the appropriate measures, if negative information is posted online about your business.

One thing that is very important is to remain professional. Do not argue with dissatisfied customers. This will not help to bolster the image of your business at all. Instead, it will only reinforce the negative impression that the bad reviews create.

One of the best ways to combat negative reviews is to reinforce a positive image of your business. Make sure that you provide the same quality of services or even better. If you are able to provide higher quality services, it is good if the public knows about this. This will help to continue to attract customers. Furthermore, it’s important that the public knows that they will continue to have access to your high quality services. You certainly don’t want people to falsely think your business is on the decline.

Finally, negative reviews can create a very stressful situation for business owners. It is important to focus on your own well being. You should speak with someone about the situation, and this can help the situation to not get the best of you. Furthermore, affirm to yourself that you went into the business you did for a reason. Continue to remind yourself of why you enjoy being in the business that you are. Doing this can prevent you from becoming angry or depressed about the situation.

Chaudhary Uses ClassDojo to Impact Classroom Community

Sam Chaudhary has had a passion for education for quite some time. The CEO of ClassDojo, Chaudbhary wants to see the classroom be a place where everyone thrives. Before creating his product ClassDojo, he did a lot of research by talking to teachers, parents and students. For years he felt like the culture of the classroom was not effective and he had a desire to see that change.

Seeing the need for change, Chaudhary along with his partner Liam Don started ClassDojo, a website that helps teachers track student behavior by awarding or deducting points for a variety of skills. Now in countries all across the world, ClassDojo has raised millions in funding.

Chaudhary recently shared his thoughts about technology in education. He mentioned that most ed-tech tools are purchased by the district educators are forced to use it. Dojo is a product that teachers are using and no one is making them do so. He firmly believes that a classroom is a community not a competitive environment. Everyone helped each other, regardless of what level they were on. Chaudhary is convinced Dojo will move beyond a communication tool in the next 10 years. “The mission and strategy of this company is to give teachers, parents and kids the power to change education from the ground up. I think growth mindset hints at some of that future,” he said.

ClassDojo is becoming a worldwide application used in almost every school. The program has raised more than $20 million for educators. The application connects educators to students’ parents allowing them to ommunicate consistently. The uses for the app are endless. Teachers can make a schedule of activities to show parents. For those parent that are tech-savy, teachers can use the program to take and send pictures or videos and send them to parents showing off a student’s latest work. A great way to communicate and ensure that parents are informed.

As the application continues to grow it continues to get better. The app now has transactional features that enable parents to pay school fees via their phones. ClassDojo is impacting the community of the classroom in a very positive way.

George Soros Trading Again

He has always strictly observed his firm’s venture. But in the last few years, he hasn’t done much capitalizing off his own. At the start of this year, that changed when Mr. Soros began going to the office and spending more time guiding trades. He has also been maintaining contact with the executives more than before.

Mr. Soros also claims that there stands a good chance the European Union will breakdown due to the pressure of the migration crisis, current challenges in Greece and a possible departure by the United Kingdom from the European Union.

Mr. Soros’s bearish investments have had mixed achievements.

Wengie Has Plenty of Diet Tips, but What’s inside Her Kitchen?

There is no denying that Wengie is an advocate for fashion, beauty, and diet advice. While everyone loves looking good on the outside, a lot of people still prefer to feel great inside, too. Alas, Wengie takes to YouTube to discuss some healthy meal options that keep her so trim, but her viewers cannot help but want to know what her kitchen looks like. Well, the day finally came, and those who are a little Wengie crazed can see just where she keeps her diet-friendly ingredients.

The second you walk into Wengie’s apartment, you are greeted by very bright, white walls that allow her decor to stand out on its own. The first room is the entire point of the curiosity: the kitchen. Plenty of cupboards, drawers, and a sleek, white counter make for a sophisticated yet modern look that screams, “Wengie!” To the right is a pretty impressive shoe rack (do not worry; it is away from the cooking space), and the front view looks out into her spacious living room that doubles as a sunroom.

Plenty of appliances sit atop the counters and, of course, a red teapot accents the stove. Unfortunately, we did not catch a glimpse of what the fridge has in it, but one can only assume that it has lots of fresh fruits and veggies. The best part of the brief kitchen tour, though, was Wengie’s statement exclaiming just how much she loves her simple kitchen, and that it serves its intended purpose. Plenty of windows light the room during the day, and simple lighting works wonders at night.
