QNET And The RYTHM Foundation: Providing Clean Drinking Water For Children

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

The RYTHM Foundation is the charitable arm of the internationally known marketing organization QNET. Through the RYTHM Foundation QNET has been able to offer a host of free services and programs in the communities where they do business. Their latest program is called the Positive Thoughts Project. The Positive Thought Project is a program designed to provide clean drinking water to learning disabled children. Participation in the project is open to everyone. All people have to do to participate is to visit the QNET/RYTHM Foundation FaceBook page and post a positive thought. When 500 or more people have left positive posts, a school for learning disable people will receive a free 7-stage water filtration system.

QNET has long been associated with creating jobs and economic opportunities throughout the developing world. The company has helped to lift untold numbers of communities out of poverty and improved the quality of life for hundreds of thousands of people. It does so by offering quality products at affordable prices and giving the local people the opportunity to market the products themselves as independent representatives of QNET. Many of these positions are offered in communities with some of the world’s highest rates of employment. Often a QNET job is the only thing preventing families from sinking into poverty, destitution, and hopelessness.

Safe drinking water is often scarce in these communities as well. Drinking dirty water can hurt the developing minds of young children. That is part of the motivation behind the creation of the Positive Thoughts Project. This is just one small way for QNET through the RYTHM Foundation to begin to address the problem of unsafe water that plagues many poor communities around the world. Through the Positive Thoughts Project the average person can help to provide clean water for leaning disabled youth by simply visiting the FaceBook page and saying something positive.

The problem of unsafe drinking water facing large portions of the world’s population is a serious matter. The Positive Thoughts Project being run by QNET and the RYTHM Foundation is just one way the company is raising awareness of the problem and helping to provide a solution. QNET and the RYTHM Foundation understand that awareness is the first step towards finding a solution. Through the Positive Thoughts Project the company will provide HomePure RED 7-stage premier water filtration systems for the students at the Taarana School and the Rashid Center.

Soros says Chinese economy can’t sustain growth

Saturday, April 23rd, 2016

George Soros became one of the world’s wealthiest men by understanding world economies and making the right moves at the right time. So when he speaks of economy on marketwatch.com, he knows what he is talking about and the world listens. Recently he told an Asia Society meeting in New York that there are many similarities between the current Chinese economy and that of the United States in 2006, when it fell into a major recession that affected economies around the world. The Chinese economy is second only to the United States in size.

China’s March credit growth figures were the most troubling George Soros said. The figures showed new credit at 2.34 trillion Yuan, which was nearly double the predicted 1.4 trillion. Soros said this signals that the Chinese government is putting growth ahead of restraining a growing debt. George Soros said banks are lending money to cover debt instead of real investments, and banks are lending to other banks, which are also problems. He said that is what the United States was doing that led to its recession in 2008. The housing market is also booming in China, just as it was in the United States before the recession.

For its part, the Chinese government says Soros has made similar predictions before on georgesoros.com, and they dismissed them as over stating the crisis that looms in China for the economy. Still, George Soros has often been right in his assessments. In 1992 he made $1 billion by taking a gamble on the British economy when he thought they would be forced to devalue the Pound.

Soros says the growth is artificial, held afloat by debt, and that is not sustainable. He said that is why he is betting against the Chinese economy. He predicted the Chinese economy on http://www.nybooks.com/contributors/george-soros/ will suffer a “hard landing” in a year or two, just as the United States did when its economy was in the same situation.

George Soros has been in the investment business since the early 1950s when he moved to the United States and started an international finance company. His hedge funds were also very profitable, sustaining a 20 percent profit average for about 40 years, which is how he amassed his $24 billion fortune.

Soros was born to Jewish parents in Hungary, and they were under Nazi occupation in World War II. They survived by staying in hiding and with fake identification papers. After the war he went to England and studied economics. From there, in the early 1950s he moved to the United States.

Soros has been active in politics, and supported liberal or democratic issues for years. he has supported democratic candidates for president as well, and worked against the re-election of President Bush after his first term.

Clocks To Help Combat Energy Crisis

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

Venezuela has gone ahead by 30 minutes as President Maduro declared that the move would come into effect from 1st May 2016. The reason for this time travel is simple – the energy crisis in Venezuela has become worse than ever before.

With this move, Maduro hopes that the energy usage would go down as it is during the evening that most power is used. This move will reverse the turning back of clocks by 30 minutes by former President Hugo Chavez who wanted children to wake up for school during daytime.

Venezuela is currently being crippled due to power shortage and critics of the government like Norka Luque also reveal that the crisis could be a result of lack of management and investment by the government in this sector. Apart from the clocks, Maduro also urged women to restrict the use of hairdryers to only special occasions since electricity is hard to come by these days.

CorporationWiki has reported on the country already dealing with economic and political crisis and this energy crisis is not going to help matters at all. With the Amnesty bill issue and the rising inflation rate making oil more expensive in Venezuela, people are finding it difficult to even handle day to day activities. Medicines, transport, and even basic amenities like food have become markedly more expensive in Venezuela.
The energy sector was offered longer weekends as Maduro recently made Friday a non-working day in Venezuela for some time.

Helane Morrison Proves Gender is a Non-issue in the Male Dominated Compliance Sector

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Today, as markets continue to become more liberalized and free from government control, the role of compliance officers only gets more important. According to me, compliance officers need to be empowered to be able to adequately keep order and ensure ethical business practices. As I look at the wonderful work done by compliance officer Helane Morrison at the San Francisco based SEC, I cannot help but feel awed by the true power of a woman.

Need for Ethical Compliance Officers

After the 2007/2008 economic recession that was caused by unregulated markets driven by selfish interests, my appreciation for strict officers like Morrison grew tenfold. The talented lawyer accepted a position at the SEC after she was plucked from private practice. Her unique background in law and journalism allowed her to investigate and prosecute unscrupulous individuals guilty of fraud and other malpractices.

In addition, she had previously defended individuals accused of various malpractices by the SEC. This gave her enough experience and qualification to take on the role of regulation and compliance. She was able to bring down executives from major conglomerates like NextCard Inc, Google, HBO and Hewllet Packard. She also protected senior citizens from fraudulent activities, fought against market manipulation as well as insider trading.

At Hall Capital Partners, Morrison is currently the company’s Chief Compliance Officer and runs a team of highly professional individuals. Furthermore, she sits on several boards most notably Regional Parks Foundation.

About Helane Morrison

Helane Morrison is widely seen as the beacon of hope for strong women everywhere. Today we surely need women of character and strict ethics who can challenge men in their own fields. Helane Morrison is a respected lawyer working for Hall Capital Partners LLC. She is a senior counsel, Managing Director and the Chief Compliance Officer for the privately held firm. Prior to joining Hall Capital Partners, Morrison was the Regional Director of the United States SEC office in San Francisco.

Morrison holds degrees in Journalism and Law from Northwestern University and Berkeley School of Law respectively. After law school, she secured a law clerk job for judges Richard A. Posner (Appellate Judge) and Harry A. Blackmun (Supreme Court). In 1986, she joined a law firm from San Francisco called Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin. In 1991, her position at the firm was elevated to partner. She stayed at the firm until 1996 when she joined the SEC in San Francisco as its Head of Enforcement.
