Betsy DeVos Seeks New Ways Of Using Philanthropy To Help As Many As Possible

Posted by omeditors | Posted in Education, Philanthropy, US Politics | Posted on 27-02-2017

I first became aware of Betsy DeVos through her work as an activist for the education reform movement who have been traveling across the U.S. seeking to establish a range of new programs in different areas of school choice, vouchers and charter schools. The charter school campaigns have been a major part of the work of Betsy DeVos who has not only fought to establish and maintain the Detroit Charter School system, but also established the West Michigan Aviation Academy that provides a simple and effective way of educating young people from a range of backgrounds about the aviation industry; a secondary advantage of this form of school is the fact the local area of Grand Rapids will become a hub for the aviation industry in the region.

One of the greatest aspects of the work Mrs. DeVos that I feel is important has been completing in recent years is her attempt to develop a greater understanding of the school voucher systems she has championed for a number of decades. One of the main areas the newly installed Secretary of Education for the U.S. has hoped to change attitudes is in the way the public school system is operated, including a dedication to children instead of the unions that have a major say in how the youth of the U.S. are educated.

In the Grand Rapids area of Michigan, Betsy DeVos is well known for her dedication to the local community in many different forms. Alongside her husband Dick, the Calvin College educated daughter of industrialist Edward Prince has impressed me by playing a major role in making sure the local community across the state of Michigan have access to arts and education based opportunities to better every aspect of the state. Betsy DeVos served on the board of the Kennedy Center for the Arts under then President George W. Bush and used her role to make sure Michigan was given an arts based program that includes the ArtsPrize voted on by members of the public.

Alongside her work in education and as a philanthropist, which has seen she and her husband provide more than $11 million in support to different charitable groups in 2015 alone, Mrs. DeVos has also looked to develop her business career as an investor with The Windquest Group. I believe the interests of Betsy DeVos show her progressive approach to all aspects of life as she has not only looked to create a number of business opportunities in Michigan, but also found ways of backing new technologies such as boxed water supplies and green energy technologies.

Arizona Entrepreneur Jason Hope Fights Atherosclerosis Through Huge Donation

The root of all aging?

Mr. Hope is no stranger to medical research. Since he was a child, the entrepreneur and polymath has had an almost compulsive interest in medicine and how technology can enhance treatments and cures.

Always abreast of the latest trends in medical research, Mr. Hope knew that, increasingly, the consensus of the medical community is coming to the position that the same underlying processes that cause atherosclerosis, namely inflammatory damage and the immune response designed to repair it, are the underlying cause for many, if not most of the diseases associated with aging.

This insight has led Mr. Hope to the conclusion that, by funding atherosclerosis research, he’s killing two birds with one stone. Atherosclerosis itself is directly responsible for the most lethal diseases in America. Heart attack, stroke and even the worst sequelae of diabetes, such as gangrene requiring amputation, are a direct result of arterial disease. However, if the medical community can arrive at a complete understanding of the entire clinical processes behind atherosclerosis, the potential bounty is much more than just a severe reduction in the biggest killer diseases. It may be something akin to the Fountain of Youth.

Today, nearly every condition associated with aging, from wrinkled skin to arthritis to progressive reductions in organ function, are hypothesized to be related to inflammation and the body’s immune response to it. If sufficient insight into these processes can be gained, it may be possible to extend average life expectancy to much closer to the hypothesized maximum human lifespan of around 125 years. Such a scenario could see the average person living, in shockingly good health, until 100 years old or beyond, with total independence.

Recently, the SENS Foundation, a non-profit center for biomedical research, announced that it has received a $500,000 donation from Arizona entrepreneur Jason Hope. Hope gave the large donation with the stipulation that it be used for research into atherosclerosis and the underlying processes that lead to it. For its part, the SENS foundation said that Mr. Hope’s magnanimous donation would be put to good use, considerably enhancing the foundation’s ability to fund atherosclerosis research over the next couple of years.

Posted by omeditors | Posted in Beauty Products | Posted on 20-02-2017

You need to use lip balm daily, ladies and gentlemen. There is nothing worse than cracked, dry lips that ruin your day. Your lips cry out for nourishment, simply because of the way they are made in the human body. In other words, lips are uniquely thin in structure, lack protective oil glands and don’t have melanin.

That means, everyone’s lips are vulnerable, even if they are naturally full. Lips need moisture 24/7 and even protection from the sun. You can develop skin cancer on the lips, so when heading outdoors, arm yourself with a wonderful lip balm.

You might believe that all lip balms are the same, but really, they are not. A great lip balm would feature organic ingredients like jojoba oil, shea butter and protective vitamins like E.

Evolution of Smooth is made with all that goodness and shaped perfectly into a little sphere. That’s an intelligent design for several reasons, namely for its ability to cover the entire mouth, no matter what size or shape one’s lips are. It’s a genius invention that no one else has been able to duplicate.

In addition, it’s easy to find your EOS lip balm lost in the bottom of your big bag, ladies. It’s the ideal, inexpensive little beauty product to have in every room of your home, one in the car, at the office and anywhere else you might go.

Evolution of Smooth lip balms add wonderful moisture that seal your lips, and the flavors are so yummy and collectible. Britney Spears’ favorite is Pomegranate Raspberry, and she carries it with her everywhere.

The music and entertainment industry is a prime example of a dog eat dog world. One of the most important aspects of success is how aggressive and passionate one is going to be in order to make it through to the top level of success. While some people believe that all one needs is the connections in order to make it, promoters like Desiree Perez has shown that one has to be very tough in the music industry. She is able to pull it off because she has been through a lot of trials that have helped her realize that music industry opposition is nothing.

 

One thing that people have to look out for in the music industry are wannabes and studio creations. Often times, there are people that have so much to prove. While there is nothing wrong with that in and of itself, it does result in some aggression that is fueled by insecurities. While a lot of the proven stars are above that, they may have to fight through some of that in order to remain relevant in the constantly changing music industry. Desiree Perez is one of the people that have actually been in the belly of the beast and conquered it.

 

One thing that Desiree Perez has is a really thick skin and a sort of aggression that is necessary to make all of the needed events happen. For one thing, she is not easily intimidated. She is self assured and actualized in her life. She is someone that others can admire not just for the thick skin she carries with her, but the ability to get her artists connected with the people they need. She is also able to bring the best out of her artists so that they will be able to handle the music industry as well.

George Soros Shares His Thoughts On Donald Trump And The Future Of Democracy

0

Posted by omeditors | Posted in US Politics | Posted on 06-02-2017

The world’s political atmosphere is tumultuous, at its best, right now. First came the United Kingdom’s unprecedented decision to exit the European Union. Then Donald Trump was elected to serve as the 45th president of the United States of America.

Brexit on Politico caused stock and currency markets all over the world to plummet, the pound to drop to its lowest value in more than 30 years, and American corporations to consider leaving London. Meanwhile, in the United States, Donald Trump was making a mockery of the electoral process, encouraging misplaced hate, and relying on fear mongering to further divide a nation.

In a recent essay, George Soros shared his fears for the future of democracy and the European Union. The 86-year-old Holocaust survivor was quick to point out the fact that one world leader, Vladimir Putin, played an active role in influencing both the U.S. election and the Brexit vote on Forbes. Russian President Putin is a direct threat to the open societies that George Soros has spent his life trying to protect.

The United States is resilient and democracy will prevail in the end. Unfortunately, while the world’s leading democracy is distracted by President Trump’s unqualified cabinet on opensocietyfoundations.org, unconstitutional policies, and social media outbursts open societies in the rest of the world will suffer. The fate of the European Union is weighing heavily on George Soros’s mind. If President Putin continues to gain momentum in Europe, he’ll achieve dominance over the continent, and the damage will be irrevocable.

In another recent essay, George Soros called Donald Trump a con man that will fail. Soros shares a popular theory that Trump never intended to win the election, he simply wanted to prove his prowess as a business man, and to further his brand. President Trump is now expected to influence business regulations to favor his personal business interests. Soros considers Trump to be a volatile, unpredictable would-be dictator.

George Soros is a Hungarian-born hedge fund manager who has donated more than $12 billion to charities around the world. Witnessing the horrors brought on by the Nazi regime first hand has clearly shaped the philanthropist that Soros became. He focuses his generosity on organizations that support social justice, freedom of expression, and open governments.

In 1993 George Soros founded the Open Society Foundation. The foundation has since spent nearly $3 billion defending the rights of women, minorities, and members of the LGBT community. The open Society Foundation has also spent billions of dollars on education, criminal justice reform, developing democracy in Europe and the former Soviet Union, immigration, public health issues, and equal rights.

UNDERSTANDING COMPARATIVE LAW: A SUJIT CHOUDHRY PERSPECTIVE

0

Posted by omeditors | Posted in Constitutioal Law | Posted on 03-02-2017

Comparative Law attempts to describe the comparison of various laws. It functions as a discipline which seeks to understand a range of legal systems in their entirety and their relationship with one another without suppressing the difference between them. Comparative law does this by working on three important elements. The first element is the actual comparison of legal systems which includes the discovery, elucidation and assessment of similarities and differences. The other element concerns looking at the influence between the legal systems, most important being the reception of law regardless of it being of individual legal institutions or of entire legal systems. Lastly is development of a general theory of law. Sujit Choudhry; a Professor of Law who is established in Comparative Institutional Law, defines comparative law as “A legal field that studies the similarities and differences among the laws of different nations by looking into the world’s legal systems which take account of civil law, Hindu law, Chinese law, Canon law, Socialist law, Jewish law and common law.”

 

 

Born in 1970, Choudhry studied biology at McGill University before proceeding to University of Oxford for a B.A. in law and University of Toronto for his LL.B and there after an LL.M. from Harvard Law School. Choudhry is an internationally recognized authority on comparative constitutional law. He not only has an extensive research experience addressing a various issues in comparative constitutional law but also an in-depth field experience where has worked as a consultant in constitution building processes of various countries as stated in constitutionaltransitions.com. Professor Sujit is an author in books about Canadian constitutional law and has close to a hundred articles, book chapters, working papers and reports in his name. He is also an editor of various books most on comparative constitutional law.

 

 

Choudhry has served as a professor of Law at NYU School of Law and University of Toronto where he also held leadership positions. He was a member of the Governing Toronto Advisory Panel and was a Dean from 2014 to 2016 where he propagated strategic agenda with pillars of Access, Innovation, Service and Globalization. Choudhry was awarded the Trudeau Foundation Fellowship for his efforts in post-conflict constitutional law and was also the practitioner of the Year from South Asian Bar Association in Toronto. He is a founder of an organization which generates and mobilizes awareness in support of constitution building known as Center for Constitutional Transitions. He holds a record in Charkaoui (security certificates), and Khadr 1 and Khadr 2 (Guantanamo detainees) before the Supreme Court of Canada; and he was one of four Canadians to receive the Trudeau Fellowship. He has been proactively involved in the fight for same sex marriage. Check his awards here: http://www.law.nyu.edu/news/choudhry_award.

Under his supervision, the office recorded several 100 million dollars production units which were more than expected.
