Russia Curbs George Soros’ Influence.

 

 

George Soros is perhaps one of the most selfless and dedicated philanthropists around. He is the Founder and presiding chair of the Open Society Foundations. If you are not conversant with this group, it’s a network of partners and community-based organizations that do charitable work. These charitable organizations have spread around every continent gaining influence in over a hundred nations.

 

George Soros is also a respected scholar, thinker, and influencer of public opinion. He came up with the idea of an Open Society after observing and intervening in cases of oppression on various occasions. By then, Soros was a hedge fund manager with a growing career. He was making headlines in New York, and London and investors rushed to him to receive advice and make deals.

 

George Soros counts himself lucky to have achieved tremendous success in life. Five decades ago, he was an active student at the London School of Economics. A premier institution that produced the best brains in the world at the time. Some years before then, Soros was a young man in Budapest with a passion for education and a big dream. The struggles he encountered in his early life taught him great life lessons.

 

Soros acknowledges the need to accept the truths of life and the fact that nobody can understand all aspects of life. As a result, one must have a free thinking mind. A collection of such thinkers in society enables the people to appreciate diversity and, therefore, offer equal opportunities to all. Such ideological views form part of philosophical tenets behind the Open Society Foundations.

 

Furthermore, George realized the need to spread the idea across the world hence his retirement from hedge fund administration to philanthropy. He made substantial gains in establishing open societies around the world. However, it comes at a price that is controversy and criticism. For instance, his involvement in condemning the communist order in the Eastern bloc haunts him till today.

 

Being a pro-democrat, many of his projects in Ukraine and Northern Russia have been achieving monumental success. However, the Russian government does not support these ideas hence a conflict of interest. In 2015, the government had seen enough and acted by listing two of Soros’ projects as security threats.

 

The ban has recently forced authorities to start operations to wipe out any signs of the organizations. The latest victim was the library at Vorkuta Mining and Economic College where books donated by Soros were put on fire.

Friendship Wanted With Active Seniors

It was another long day of doing nothing all by myself. Sure, I could read or wait to see what the mailman brought. This was getting so tedious, though. I finally admitted to myself that the time had come. It was time to move on.

Ted, my husband of 40 years, had passed away two years ago. I realized that I was through mourning. I still wanted to live. Ted would’ve wanted me to live. So, I decided to make a move from our house that we had shared and raised our children in. I wanted to be around other seniors who were enjoying life. I wanted the Manse on Marsh after browsing the blog a little bit.

At the Manse on Marsh, located on California’s sunny coast, I would have my own place. No sharing a room with a stranger for me! I could choose between a studio, a 1-bedroom, or even a cottage if I liked, and other reviews showed that too. Turns out, the studio was perfect for me. The furnishings were beautiful and the decor was tasteful.

Here, in the new place, I am now enjoying getting to know my neighbors. These lovely men and women wanted the independence that I have. They found out that a full, active lifestyle with the security of a knowledgeable helpful staff is the perfect combination for living. Horseback riding, shopping excursions, yoga, trips to the beach- we enjoy it all at the Manse on Marsh. If we need a little help with dressing or medications, it is there for us at the touch of a button.

The friendly staff come and clean for me once-a-week. Bed linens are changed and the place is spruced up. Daily, they come in and make my bed. My laundry is done. Trash is taken out. Everything is handled for me. All I have to do is enjoy my new life in my new home with my new friends.

Meals are wonderful at the Manse on Marsh, too. Professional chefs prepare tasty options that are served in the elegant dining room or at the Bistro. Enjoy fresh-baked pastries, coffee and fruit throughout the day. Sit and talk with your friends. Sip some wine with your meal.

Come and see if The Manse on Marsh meets your requirements for a full, active lifestyle. They have a Twitter that’s easy to follow, and a website where they can be contacted at just about any time.

According to Sam Tabar, investors should conduct adequate research before investing in commodities and stocks. The right decision would depend on exploring the history of a specific commodity, in order to predict its performance in future. As an experienced strategic investor, Sam is definitely informed what should be looked at when deciding the right commodity investment. He advises investors to avoid poorly managed funds because they are not favorable when focusing on your return on investment.

To avoid such instances, Tabar is asking investors to conduct proper due diligence and foresight, so that they can avoid making losses in future. The only way investors can make safe investment is by investing in commodities that are properly managed. Sam believes that the more research an investor performs, the better it would be for him/her.

Kyle Bass Speaks Out Against Patents

In the news as of recently, there have been several scandals that have involved the high and low cost of pharmaceutical drugs. As this becomes an issue, hedge fund managers such as Kyle Bass continue to address this issue as well as the importance to get rid of patents on pharmaceutical drugs, though some of them continue to be just as scandalous themselves. Kyle Bass is a hedge fund manager who founded his hedge fund, Hayman Capital Management in 2006. His hedge fund firm earned a fortune in 2008 after he correctly guessed the financial crisis of 2008 that involved the plummeting prices of real estate. His knowledge of the industry has made him a force not to be underestimated.

Kyle Bass has recently begun to speak out against pharmaceutical patents that have made generic drugs overpriced and therefor less available to the public. Mr. Bass, by mid-November of 2015, filed 33 separate reports that requested a review of the patents that have been placed on the pharmaceutical drugs. Specifically, Mr. Bass would like 13 specific drugs to be reviewed that company from 12 different companies.  Although he has been accused of taking advantage of the same loopholes.

Mr. Bass has been labeled as an expert within the investment industry. Mr. Bass, along with his associate, have bought several stocks that are patented. He believes that only products that show true innovation should be patented. Otherwise, it is a waste of time of government regulation and spending.

One of the patents that Mr. Bass and his associate, Mr. Spangenberg, are opposed to the most is for Propofol. This particular drug is an anesthetic drug. This particular drug is used in 80 percent of nation-wide operations. Despite the fact that it is a highly demanded drug, the patent on the drug makes the price abnormally high for the popularity of it. The patent approval for the drug was extended in 2013 to extend for 12 more years.

Mr. Bass comments on the fact that patents are for the most part extended when the product is about the expire. When the door is about to generic makers, this is when the drug is most likely to be patented in order to keep the price of the drug high. Mr. Bass also notes the irony in the fact that a pharmaceutical drug company is offering drugs to better the lives of the public, but the pharmaceutical company wants to keep the price of the specific drug as high as possible.

With Mr. Bass’ mission of eliminating the patents on certain drugs, he has launched a new campaign to do so. Mr. Bass’ new campaign is non-profit and is funded through his own pocket. In return for his funding, the only desire that Mr. Bass has is to end the unjust patents that are given to generic pharmaceutical drugs.
