Searching Through Trash For Food

June 20th, 2016 by admin

There should never be a time when residents of a state or a country have to dig through trash just to find food to eat or to sell for money, but those who live in Venezuela are doing just that because of a food shortage and an energy crisis. Even business owners like Norka have to dig through the trash just so they won’t starve. This is something that people aren’t accustomed to doing. According to the Latino Show Magazine, the food that is found is being hoarded or sold for a substantial amount of money because of the demand. People who are unemployed are searching high and low for just the smallest morsel. In a state that is rich in oil, digging through a dumpster should not be an option. However, food banks don’t have enough supplies to keep up with the need, so they are turning people away, forcing them to look for other options.

A recent article on BitsyLink was discussing Bernardo Chua, and how he started up his own company called Organo Gold. He started out as a manager with a company in California. The young man had a dream and a vision to be successful. After working with the company for many years he took his dream and vision and ran with it. With the help of a mushroom and some good advice, Chua started a coffee and tea business that is becoming big around the world. The mushroom herb is creating a healthy drink that helps with swelling, joint pain, cholesterol, diabetes, and memory.

The company began in 2008 in Canada. Organo Gold sells widely on the market. Many individuals are taking this product and introducing it to their own market online. The Ganoderma Lucidum is simply added to liquids such as hot tea, cold tea, and instant coffee. The health benefits of the herb can help Americans like it has helped people in the Philippines for centuries.

According to LinkedIn, Bernardo Chua began as a young man. He worked in the Philippines and then moved to California. Being born in the Philippines gave Chua the knowledge and experience he needed to make this magic herb successful and part of the beverage market. He began his marketing career with Gano Excel out of California. After working there for several years he began to see the benefits of owning his own company. After careful testing and a lot of thought, Chua started his own business using the healthy herb. Organo was introduced and Chua was an instant success. Chua has won several awards.

Anyone that is wishing to start their own business can take a lesson from Bernardo. Starting your own business takes products that you believe in. The products need to have proven track records. Products such as Organo Gold are making the news daily. The few people that started out with Chua are amazed at how fast the product grew. This CEO/Business owner is happy to contribute to the United States and Canada.   The award winning Bernardo is really making things happen, and it’s truly impressive.

George Soros Backing Out Means Bearish Warning to Investors

June 14th, 2016 by admin
0

When you think about who George Soros is, you not only have to consider what he is doing but also what he isn’t doing when it comes to the market. Because of his general intelligence he already understands what could be happening in the markets. However, when you also throw in what his influence can do, it means there is a much better chance he is aware of something on the horizons when he acts and makes a major change with his portfolio. Right now is one of those possible times and the actions of George Soros are sending ripples throughout the markets.

George Soros is not only one of the most wealthy individuals on the face of the planet, but he also built his wealth based upon smart decisions. This means he wasn’t just throwing money carelessly at any opportunity he came across; he was able to judge and evaluate any given investment and know when he should keep his money out of certain investments as well. He has also demonstrated time and time again that there are good economic times to invest, and there are times you must reel everything in so that you can protect your assets and portfolio. The fact that George Soros is currently reeling everything in and going to cash and bond positions might be a fluke, but it might also mean something major is about to hit.

The Greatest Investors: George Soros

George Soros – The New York Times

The thing to remember about the markets is that while you cannot fully predict them, there are absolutely more than enough individuals who have found what types of signals should be paid attention to. It isn’t just about what will or won’t happen. It is about understanding the given odds at any time and then trying to make the best decisions based off of what those odds say. As George Soros is starting to pull back his positions it doesn’t mean he isn’t intelligent or even that he is one hundred percent correct for doing so. What it does mean is that there could definitely be some signs that are not just telling him to be careful, but those signs are strong enough to force him to miss out on potential earnings and gains while he does pull back.

At the end of the day any given investor needs to know what their risk tolerance is. And, for someone who has had enough common sense to make major moves in the past that were almost all proven true, this could be a very telling decision to pull back right when markets should potentially be heating up. The most important thing in this situation is for all of the other investors out there to consider what George Soros is doing and whether or not they should follow suit.

Juicy fresh mangoes, a delicacy in many parts of the United States, are helping solve the Venezuelan food shortage by providing some relief for people who cannot find enough groceries to buy. The sweet fruit does not have enough nutritional value to replace a proper diet, but according to some Linked In nutritionist lush mango trees dot the land, providing free, fresh food. Coconut and papaya trees also grow in Venezuela, and people are enjoying the tropical fruit now that it is in season. Mangoes, coconuts and papayas also offer a way for the enterprising to earn extra cash. Roadside vendors are seen almost everywhere, selling the fruit to people who are tired of waiting in long lines to get into supermarkets with almost bare shelves.
Local committees are going door-to-door handing out staples, such as oil, sugar and rice, but meat is scarce. In Caracas, the wealthy like Jose Gonzalez, 55, are not having much difficulty finding food to buy, but most of the people in Venezuela are forced to supplement their diet with tropical fruit that they pluck from trees.

Venezuelan Food Shortage may Lead to Long-Term Health Risk

May 26th, 2016 by admin

Venezuelan citizen Jose Manuel González reported in a recent statement that when he went to the butcher not long ago, he would buy himself steak and get cow lung for his dog. Now, Gonzalez says, if he can get meat at all he is getting himself the cow lung.
There has been for some time in Venezuela a shortage of basic foods, so citizens have had to resort to whatever they can find.

Milk, meat and beans are sold at very high prices, if they can be found at all, and so many have resolved to eat pasta and rice, or cornmeal, which people report doesn’t have the quality of nutrition that the others have.

In a recent poll done by 3 top universities in Venezuela, 12% polled said they weren’t eating even 3 meals per day, and in a sample of 4,000 school children, 30% were polled as malnourished.

Due to the country’s reliance on oil, the dropping prices have reduced the import of food.

Rafael Camacho, originally from the countryside in Barlovento, has tried to use the farming skills he learned on his farm as a child to grow food and feed his 9-member family. He has grown corn, squash, bananas and beans to name a few, as well as herbs.

Shea Butter: A Little Something for Everyone

May 17th, 2016 by admin

Born from the nut of the shea tree that grows in the savannas of Western and Central Africa, shea butter has been used for thousands of years for its skin nourishing qualities. Its use was first recorded among the ancient Egyptians where it was the beauty secret of Egypt’s most admired royalty. Demand for the product was so high that caravans would travel from thousands of miles away to deliver it to nearly every corner of Africa.

Shea butter is packed with a rich cocktail of nutrients. Its five essential fatty acids make it an excellent daily moisturizer. Vitamins A and E, along with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, have been demonstrated to alleviate a variety of skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, dermatitis, as well as helping to treat insect bites and minor cuts and burns. Its concentration of vitamin A has also been shown to boost collagen production in the skin, diminishing the appearance of stretch marks and wrinkles, leaving skin with a youthful and radiant glow.

Eu’Genia Shea brings this treasure from West Africa to you. Started by Former Wall Street analyst Naa-Sakle Akuete, Eu’Genia Shea is named after her mother, Eu’Genia, who uses the recipe of her mother, a Ghanaian midwife who went by the nickname Grandma Sunshine. This raw and unrefined shea butter is supplied by all-female cooperatives in northern Ghana, where the women are given opportunities to earn above-average wages and job training.

Eu’Genia Shea has three different formulas you can choose from: Everyday Shea Butter, Pregnancy Strength Shea Butter, and Dermatological Strength Shea Butter. All formulas come in your choice of two sizes: 1.6 oz. and 12 oz. tins.

Why Venezuela is in economic crisis

May 13th, 2016 by admin

Venezuela has been in a financial crisis for some time. According to figures it released recently, the nation’s economy shrank seven percent in just one quarter last year, and has gone down each quarter since 2014. Inflation has been skyrocketing and may reach 200 percent by the end of the year according to a story in CNN.
Of course the opposition party wants to blame President Nicolas Maduro, and Maduro blames the opposition for causing instability. But the CNN article gave five reasons for the crisis.

The number one reason according to economic expert David Osio, is also the most obvious reason, which is tumbling oil prices. Venezuela’s economy is based on oil, and it is a major exporter of oil. When oil was $100 or more a barrel, it was good times there, but now that oil has fallen to $30 or below, they are in hard times. Money from oil exports has fallen from $75 billion to $27 billion over the last two years.

The second reason is t hat the Bolivar has shrunk drastically in value because the government has printed so much money.

Political power struggles are another reason. Maduro is a socialist in the mold of Hugo Chavez, and the right wing opposition now has control of Congress.

A fourth reason is that the country has so much debt it may go into default.

The final reason is that the country depends so much on oil it has ignored other things. Little food is grown there, and imports get expensive. for more info visit Sliadeshare.com.
