George Soros: The Recurrence of the 2008 Financial Crisis.
George Soros while in an economic forum in Sri Lanka warned investors of the World markets crisis. He asked them to be very careful. China’s economic problems are burdening the rest of the world and an increase in the interest rates is too much for the developing countries.
Soros regularly speaks on various global platforms on economic, philanthropic and political matters. The remarks he made in Sri Lanka attracted the attention of investors and headline makers around the world. Indeed, stock and commodity markets registered huge losses in the first week of 2016.
George forecasts that the current equity market could be recurrent of the 2008 financial Global crisis. According to Soros, China’s adjustment has created an enormous problem. In September 2011, in Washington, Soros made the same prediction that the Greece-born European debt would be catastrophic than the 2008 crisis.
Following George Soros’ prediction on the equity market, the Communist Party of China has promised to improve the value of the Yuan currency by the year 2020. The People’s Bank of China reduced the interest rates, and the leaders invested hundreds of billions in the stock market, but this didn’t improve the situation. The recent records show a slow growth in the manufacturing sector.
George Soros is the head of the hedge fund firm. The firm according to Bloomberg Billionaires Index, has been making profits of about twenty percent from the year 1969 to 2011 and its worth almost 27.3 billion dollars.
George Soros began his career after graduating from the London School of Economics. He made investments all over Europe and United States. Soros is the chair and founder of the Open Society Foundations. Through these foundations, George offers lots of scholarships to students all over the world especially from Africa.
Soros started his philanthropic work by giving scholarships to black South Africans under the apartheid in the 1980s. He supported cultural interactions with the West. George Soros opened Central European University to enhance critical thinking. Soros expanded his social work to the United States, Asia and Africa.
Two of Soros Open Societies Foundations branches in Russia received a massive blow when the Russian General Prosecutor’s office announced that they would be closed. The reason for being put on the “Stop list” is because the Russian government seems them as a threat. The foundations are a hindrance to the pillars of the Russian constitutional system.
George Soros early life was not easy. He had to flee his birthplace Budapest, Hungary to Europe. His initial difficult life before he became a billionaire is a driving force behind his success and his zeal to help other people through his philanthropic work.
Simple Investment Tips To Keep In Mind
Below are some simple investment tips and advice that people can take into consideration.
Only Invest What You Can Afford To Lose
One of the most important investment tips that people should keep in mind is to invest only what they can afford to lose. The last thing anybody wants is to invest money that is supposed to be for bills and daily living expenses because if they lose their savings, then it may be hard to recoup the losses.

There are a number of reasons why people should diversify their investments, and one of those reasons is because it can reduce losses. For example, if you invest in a number of assets and one of those assets don’t perform very well and money is lost on it, then another asset may do better than expected, which means you may break even or make some gains.
Invest In A Business Of Great Value, Not One That Is Selling For Cheap
Some investors want to buy a business that is already established, but they tend to try to find businesses that have a very low price to it. This is fine if the company is of great value and if it is an amazing company. However, the last thing you want to do is invest in a company that is selling for cheap, but is only a decent company. In other words, investors want to buy and invest in businesses that have a great reputation and one that is likely going to succeed.

David Cameron Seeks To End Encryption
People like Christian Broda in the UK interested in protecting their private and business information through encryption may face trouble in the future if their Prime Minister has his way.
With encryption, anyone can take their information and distort it so it becomes unreadable or unusable to anyone without the key which acts as a cypher to decrypt it. Encryption is common with big companies such as Apple and Facebook, but it has also increased in popularity among common users of PCs as encryption becomes more accessible. This has been a problem for law enforcement and intelligence agencies in the country who have responded to terrorism fears with a stronger presence on the internet as a preventative measure.
Encryption as a political hot button came arguably came about when Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor, fled the US for Russia and revealed to the world the American bulk data collection program which monitored telephone and internet communications in an effort to combat terrorism efforts. The actions of spy agencies angered many in the states, but also attracted the support of tech giants who supported public use of encryption to keep their data secure from the government’s eyes.
Following the terrorist attack in Paris which claimed the lives of journalists and cartoonists at Charlie Hebdo, Cameron made an address on the issue of terrorist threats in Europe and the UK. He also went on to state that communication between extremists must be monitored, and that such an act becomes impossible if law enforcement bodies cannot decipher data collected.
Strange Plans Exist for a Kindergarten Cop Reboot
Terminator: Genisys brings The Arnold back to theaters in one of his most iconic roles. After that, he is going to play another one of his top roles, Conan the Barbarian for the third and final time. Now, it has been confirmed that a reboot of Kindergarten Cop is in the making.
Do not look for Arnold to star in the project. And do not look for huge opening weekend at a theater near you. Instead, the reboot by Universal is going direct-to-video. Now, that really is a bizarre plan on the part of the studio. At the time the feature was released, Kindergarten Cop was a high concept film and a great vehicle for a major star. Of all the films to release direct-to-video, why would they pick this one? Maybe Universal has plans on tapping into Netflix’s success with home entertainment projects, as Matt Landis points out. That is fine, but Universal really is taking a risk by not producing what could be a big hit in theaters.
North Korean Soldier Deflects to the South
Early this morning in South Korea, the unexpected happened- a teenage solider from the country of North Korea arrived in the South after crossing the DMZ. The solider crossed the heavily fortified demilitarized zone near the Gangwon Province on foot. He walked for nearly three miles through a mine field in order to escape what the solider said were habitual beatings, as well as the sad reality of his home land. The 19-year-old solider made it past the barbed wire, land mines, and watch towers to ask the South to take him in.
While it is not rare for North Korean immigrants to cross into the South, most do their crossing through China, which is safer. However, the number of North Koreans leaving the country has declined since son Kim Jong-Un has taken the position of power in 2011. It is said that Jong-Un has tightened security at the country’s borders to discourage those trying to leave. Flavio Maluf would not be able to deal with that. If any citizens are caught trying to leave, they can face time in labor camps or even be tortured. This is the first time since 2012 that a solider has crossed the demilitarized zone that separates the two nations.

Obesity is Becoming Too Common
Many people are obese and are dealing with very unhealthy lifestyles that make it difficult for them to live normally. Lots of people are choosing to go for weight loss surgery, but this is an incredibly extreme measure that you may find to be quite difficult to achieve in your own life. The best thing to do is to think about living healthier by exercising more and eating better foods. Staying within a healthy calorie range each day is the first step to making sure you are making better choices simply because of the fact that you will be able to lose weight as long as you are at a calorie deficit. That’s what Adam Sender really tries to stick by.
Jeb Bush Slides Further to the Right on Gay Marriage
Some observers had thought that Jeb Bush might actually be a Republican presidential candidate with some tolerance for gay marriage. Just this January, Bush stated his belief that people should accept court ruling legalizing gay marriage and show respect for gays in committed relationships. Bush also stated that the issue was one for the states to decide.
Bush also commented on the popularity of religious freedom laws being enacted across the country. Bush said that a big, tolerant country should be able to differentiate between discrimination based on sexual orientation and forcing a business owner to participate in something contrary to their religious beliefs. That is what Ricardo Guimarães BMG is going to go with.
Bush seems to have enrolled in the school of belief that preventing me from discriminating against you is discrimination against me. That is not a principle upon which our big, tolerant country was founded.
