Financial Capitalist Brad Reifler Partners With Veteran Service Center
The Easter Seals Dixon Center happily accepted a partnership from the esteemed ForeFront Capital earlier this month. Brad Reifler, co-founder and CEO of ForeFront Capital, and his advisers announced their partnership and sizable donation of $3 million dollars to help the center continue its work with veterans and their families. The Easter Seals Dixon Center works with veterans and their families locally and nationally by giving them access to programs as well as employment, education, and healthcare as they readjust to life outside of the service.
Reifler stated that the company’s partnership with the Easter Seals Dixon Center was an easy choice because of the center’s positive impact and focus in helping returning veterans lead successful lives after serving their country. From his Twitter it’s clear Reifler has given the generous donation to help make a difference in veteran’s lives, but he’s also aware that in order to live a successful life veterans must have financial stability. The $3 million has been designated to help programs like job training, health and wellness, caregiver training, education and advocacy.
Brad Reifler has been an open and outspoken advocate about finance and the importance of financial stability. He’s also openly discussed the unfairness of investment options for the low and middle class families of America and his opinions have even been picked up by finance news outlets like Yahoo!Finance and Reuters News. He’s given financial and investment advice to the public and explained how to successfully and smartly invest money so they can create college fund and save for retirement. High return investments are only available to ‘accredited investors’ that have a net worth of over a million, so Reifler created a subsidiary of ForeFront Capital which is focused on helping non-accredited investors gain access to these high return investment opportunities.
Reifler is well known for his financial genius but he’s also a well established and respected businessman. Wikipedia indicates that after graduating from Bowdoin College he founded his first company in 1982 which focused on global derivatives. The Reifler Trading Company eventually grew to be so successful the biggest global derivatives company in the world ended up buying them out in 2000. After selling his first company Reifler opened up Pali Capital which is said to be his most successful company. Riefler ran Pali Capital for thirteen years and earned the company over $200 million in profits. Reifler now acts as CEO of ForeFront Capital and its multiple subsidiaries. Reifler also provides investment tips through Reuters, who picked him up after his original story about his company’s expansion into middle class investors.

White Shark Media Uses Customer Reveiws to Improve Their Service
White Shark Media is a Digital Marketing Agency. They provide their clients with online marketing solutions that are designed specifically for the small to medium sized businesses. Their rate of growth has acknowledged them as one of the fastest growing digital agencies in the United States. This growth and success is a result of their reputation for engineering the most cost-effective Search Marketing campaigns. It is also attributed to their first class customer service they provide.
Even though they are known for providing top customer service, they still receive their share of complaints. They are now at a place in their business where they feel they have become a better company as a result of those customer reviews that were less than favorable. Using both compliments and complaints have built their business into one of the best in the industry.
One of the complaints received made White Shark Media take a closer look at how they handled reporting procedures. They changed how they communicate with the small business owner by explaining all the ins and outs of their campaign. This allows the owner to see where to go if they want to see performance of specific keywords or ads.
Another communication error they found was not making the contact person in the company available to clients when they felt they needed to talk to them. Knowing that customer service is just as important as results they set out to change this error. They now schedule monthly status calls with client and their SEM Strategist. This allows the client to find out how their account is doing as well as ask any questions they may have.
They are also given direct phone extensions to call and talk with their contact person whenever questions arise between times of the monthly reports. Needless to say this has given clients a lot of relief and White Shark Media a lot of compliments.
Another complaint White Shark Media learned a lot from was a client saying they did better with a previous provider. To improve success for their clients they now have increased the importance of many policies:
* The make sure to use any successful aspects of the clients previous campaign. They aim to make a better campaign for them and not attempt to re-build and re-start every time. If a campaign is working, they’ll use that platform to make it better.
* They assign an experienced supervisor to every three to five strategists. This makes sure they have the time to oversee all campaign performances and are there if the strategist needs help.
White Shark Media has received other great customer service insights through the years. They take all comments from their clients very seriously and make adjustments to improve their service to meet those reviews.

Kate Hudson Speaks to Elle Magazine About Fabletics
The most important thing that one has to do for a new business is get the word out about the business. It doesn’t matter how good the products are if no one knows that this product line exists. Kate Hudson has spoken to many different magazines, and Elle is one of the sources that she has utilized to help her promote this brand.
Hudson is no stranger to consumers. She has created a life on a big screen with a plethora of movies that have shown many people just how talented she is. Hudson made a decision to walk in her mother’s footsteps and become known as an actress, but the Fabletics brand is a passion that she developed all on her own. She has an active family that likes to work out, but no one had gym gear on the brain. Kate Hudson, however, was finding herself in a position where she wanted to get some clothing that would be very comfortable for working out.
As someone that was highly active she would prove over time that she was interested in working out and building a brand that was very stylish. She wanted to look cute while she was working out. Hudson didn’t believe that this was too much to ask for. She also believed that a lot of other women would feel the same exact way. Her desires helped her transition into a person that is putting new gym garments into the spotlight. That is one of the most exciting times for people that are interested in getting some athletic gear that is fashionable and affordable. Hudson has celebrity fans that are tweeting about the brand. She also has a website that gives people all over the world access to the brand. That is really a big part of her growth, but that really is just the beginning.
There are more than 100 stores that are opening up in the next 5 years. This is a big deal for the company that only has 6 physical stores right now. The stores will help Hudson push the subscription service because there will be more workers in place to inform customers about how the service works. The addition of more stores will also introduce more people to the brand that are currently unfamiliar with how this brand works. This all has become a strong labor of love for Kate Hudson.

Europe’s Migrant Crisis is causing the EU Problems and Economic Trouble
When certain nations constantly experience instability and turmoil within its boarders its people begin make an exodus out of the chaos to find a better life. This has been happening inside of Mexico and many Central American countries and it is also taking places inside of Syria, Afghanistan and Eritrea. Starting in 2014 millions of migrants began to make their way into Europe. The main reason why they have been leaving their homelands on a mass scale has to do with war and bad government. People who reside in this part of the world had enough and are ready to move on.
Most of the migrants who enter Europe have been traveling from Syria. This nation is currently locked in a fierce civil war and many people there are fed up. They risk their lives and health to make a 1000 mile journey to Europe just to escape appalling conditions back home. The people of Afghanistan have to travel a further distance of 2500 miles just to make it to Europe’s boarders.
Most of these migrants make the journey by foot and they face many different hazards along the way. The European Union (EU) is doing everything they can to stop the inflow of migrants into Europe. Many EU member states have closed their boarders and not allowed any more migrants to cross over.
As of March 2016 close to 2 million people have arrived inside of Europe. These people come into Europe without anything other than the clothes on their backs and the governments where they are located must provide them with resources. Governments have to care for these people and set up temporary shelters to keep them housed and safe. This is costing the EU millions of dollars. Some member states cannot afford to provide this type of care.
One nation in particular that is experiencing the brunt of the migrant crisis is Greece. Most of the people that are entering into Europe are being settled into this nation. Greece’s leaders are steadily protesting this predicament but they have to deal with it because they are in dire straits as a nation. The EU has been bailing out Greece for years. So EU leaders decided to send the immigrants there and then provide them money to care for these people.
Keep in mind that the current migrant crisis in Europe is the biggest humanitarian problem that this country has faced since World War II. The US has offered to help absorb the cost of the incoming migrants. President Obama has decided to take in 10,000 Syrian migrants. These individuals are usually housed and given an education so that they can become productive members of the societies where they are located.
Ultimately, EU leader Donald Tusk clearly told migrants not to come to Europe. The boarders of most EU countries are closed and the US is not accepting more than what it has promised. The migrant crises is straining countries in terms of finances but it is not bankrupting them. Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair states that the only way to stop the migrant crises is to resolve the problems in Syria. The article Migrant crisis deepens: Do not come to Europe will provide more information to readers about this issue.

Tabar Says That Flint Unveiled a Problem of Failing Water Infrastructure in the U.S.
Who should we believe in the Flint situation? No one, claims Sam Tabar. The water situation in Flint, Michigan has brought attention to the water that citizens in the United States are drinking. Tamar, who spent many years with Merrill Lynch and then Schulte Roth before becoming a key figure at Full Cycle Energy fund, says that Flint switched their water system to the Flint River in April 2014, the homes of this city began to detect lead-tainted water coming from their taps, and the situation still has not been amended. Researchers say that there are six million other service lines across the country that could also lead to lead poisoning. So the question is, “Do you trust your tap water?”
Every city is required to provide quality reports to consumers, but Tabar asserts that very few cities offer a map of the pipes that have been replaced and those that are still hazardous. It’s a known fact that those in wealthier neighborhoods feel better about the quality of their tap water while those in low-income areas are unsure or they are 60 percent more concerned about their water.
In many areas, Tabar believes the water infrastructure is decades old and deteriorating and poses the risk of unsafe water. Healthy adults, for the most part, are able to drink all tap water, but pregnant women, very young children, people with chronic illnesses, the elderly and people living with weakened immune systems are more vulnerable to “bad” water. In these cases, Tabar recommends that a high-quality bottled water should be used in place of drinking poisoned tap water. To find out the quality of water in your town, contact the company that supplies water to your home. It is your right to know the condition of the water you are drinking.
