BILLIONAIRE GEORGE SOROS FUNDING DEMOCRAT CAMPAIGNS

 
United States billionaire George Soros is reported on The New York Times to have been funding campaigns and other activities that seek to enable the Democrats to retain power. This was noticed after the billionaire made a $15 million cash out in a bid to sensitize the Latinos and all the immigrants in the United States to vote the Democrats party. Currently, it is not yet clear who amongst the party candidates will come as the billionaire’s favorites. It is just known that he is all interested in the party’s win, and that is the reason for his massive funding of the party’s activities. Many other liberal donors have joined George Soros in the funding and support of the Democrats. They are interested in having the Democrats win the 2016 election and would do anything within their power to help realize this win.
The grievances shared by the Latinos and other immigrants appear to be more addressed by the Democrats party than their counterparts, the Republicans. The Democrat party has been seen as being the party of the marginalized groups in the United States, and this is the reason most of its campaigning activities are directed towards these groups more than any other groups in the country. The Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders, have also made a significant funding of $5 million. There have many donations that are seeking to boost the Democrats campaigning and have all amounted to 175,000 in number. These donations might be used as an indication to show the amount of support that the Democrats have in store.
The Democrat party has been targeting many sections of the United States populations in its campaign. The party is much anticipated towards a win and is, therefore, putting the many donations given to them to better use. In the previous elections, most of the Latinos and the immigrants in the United States have been inclined towards the Democrats. It is the party’s manifestos that seem to protect the rights of these immigrants. However, the motive behind George Soros’ funding of the party is not apparent to many. His unwavering support directed to the Democrats has been questionable to some political analysts in the United States.
The Latinos are very influential and have always had an impact on the politics of the United States. They make a bigger percentage of the voters in the United States. Therefore, anyone who would need a win in the elections must consider seeking their support. Targeting the Latinos and all the other immigrants might bring an awesome result to the Democrats.

Doe Deere Promotes Bold Colors and Fashion Rules to Break

When it comes to fashion and makeup many people play by the rules to look their best, but sometimes breaking some rules will make a person stand out to their advantage according to a Bustle article. The Bustle interview with Doe Deere of Lime Crime goes over some rules that are meant to be broken when it comes to makeup. Doe Deere herself is an advocate for creating your own fashion and makeup rules. Lime Crime, dubbed make up for unicorns, comes in some outlandish colors.

Deere created Lime Crime out of a need to stand out. She felt like colors just weren’t bright enough, and as someone who adores a whimsical look, Deere decided to create her own line in 2008. Deere has amassed quite the following online with people who have very similar tastes to her own. Deere was born in Russia, but grew up in New York City.

Lime Crime started out by selling the brightest and most unique lipsticks on the market in 2009 and has since grown to selling all sorts of eye makeup and lipsticks including their very popular Velvetine lipstick in a matte finish. All products are cruelty free and were adapted to vegan standards. Deere is very dedicated to the products her company sells and oversees all production.

As a very influential person in the beauty industry, Deere provided her expertise to Bustle. Some of her favorite beauty rules to break include don’t do bold eye liner with bold lipstick. Of course Deere is against this rule, pairing bold colors anywhere she can. She suggests whatever colors make you happy is what’s important. A unicorn has to work in some great colors, so the rule of mixing too many colors is out, according to Deere. When it comes to fashion, Deere claims she is tired of the expectation of being neutral and tidy. Many fashion rules suggest not mixing too many patterns and wearing neutrals if you have bright colored hair. It is easy to incorporate many patterns and colors together without it being too much. Deere suggests to just pay attention to how colors interact with each other. A big tip Deere has is to not dress your physical age, but the age you feel. When it comes down to it, Deere thinks it should all be about your own personal style and you shouldn’t give up styles you love because of aging.

Sam Tabar Finds That Heavy Coffee Consumption May Reduce Risk Of Multiple Sclerosis

It’s okay to have another cup of coffee or even the whole pot. Research appearing in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry shows consumption of coffee reduces the chance of getting multiple sclerosis. Individuals consuming a large volume of coffee were 30 percent less likely to develop multiple sclerosis.

Research team leader Sam Tabar commented on Twitter, “We observed a significant association between high consumption of coffee and a decreased risk of developing MS.” The researchers assessed two case studies which had 2,779 MS-afflicted individuals and 3960 without MS. The study showed individuals consuming five or more daily cups of coffee had a lower risk of MS than non-coffee drinkers.

Tabar and his researchers stressed the study shows an association, not a cause-and-effect, of coffee consumption, with a reduced risk of MS. They speculate caffeine offers a protective response to the spinal column and brain. MS is a degenerative disease that erodes nerve fibers protective shield. Once the erosion occurs, the brain has difficulty functioning, causing muscle pain, unfocused vision and coordination problems.

Tabar’s research team concluded, “Although it remains to be shown whether drinking coffee can prevent the development of MS, the results of these thorough analyses add to the growing evidence for the beneficial health effects of coffee.”

A beverage maligned for decades, coffee is now associated with lowering the risk of early mortality, cancer, heart attack and liver disease.

The Collapse Of The European Union Soon To Come, Reports George Soros

The hedge fund manager George Soros who has proven so successful over the course of the 20th century and into the 21st century that he has amassed a fortune of more than $24 billion. The survivor of the Nazi occupation of Hungary in 1944 has recently been giving his opinions on the dangerous position in Europe in an interview with his own Website. Over the course of the 21st century George Soros has been increasing his interests in Europe and looked to expand the role of his charitable Open Society Foundations on the continent.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has been singled out for particular criticism by George Soros as he studies the effects the many different problems Europe faces from both a political and economic standpoint. The increasing problems in Europe are largely being caused by the inability of European leaders to be proactive in their efforts to halt rising levels of debt and the issues caused by the influx of refugees. Unfortunately, for European leaders the issue of rising refugee numbers entering Europe from Syria is being exasperated by Russian military officials who continue to target civilian buildings in their bombing campaign.

The problems facing Russia have left the country with little option but to use an aggressive foreign policy in a bid to make sure the country has the best chance of averting a major economic collapse in 2017. The lowered oil prices and high levels of economic sanctions introduced by European Union leaders following the Russian aggression against Ukraine have combined to make the downfall of the Union one of the last options open to Russian President Vladimir Putin. An economically strong Poland only adds to the barriers Russia faces between further expansion into Europe, which could be removed with the collapse of the Euro zone single currency.

Over the course of the 21st century the rise of the European Union has stalled with major debts rising in Greece and Ukraine, which German Chancellor Angela Merkel is reported by Soros of handling badly. Coupling these problems with the refugees entering the community from Syria means the borders of many European nations have been closed, reducing the effects of the open society the European Union was established to encourage.

Starbucks Takes Off In Italy

Italians love their coffee. They don’t drink it the same way we do, instead preferring a quick shot of strong espresso over our monstrous cups of caffeine. Italy also already has a local coffee bar on every corner, so people are wondering how this will work out for the giant coffee company Starbucks in this new arena.

Already many Italians and Dan Newlin’s law firm have spoken out for their dislike of the coffee from Starbucks, often citing their love and loyalty to their favorite local coffee bar, often owned by friends and family. With plans to open their first store in 2017, Starbucks may need to make some changes for the Italian market.

CEO of Starbucks Howard Schultz remains positive however, stating that he was originally inspired to brew coffee by his early trips to Italy, and that he wants to approach this new business venture in Italy with “humility and respect.” Italian developer Antonio Percassi is also optimistic, pointing out that Starbucks has worked in many other countries with a strong preferences regarding coffee.
