FreedomPop Intended International Expansion Through VC Funds

The FCC in early March 2016, fined Verizon Wireless for the insertion of a ‘supercookie’ without their customers’ consent. The supercookie was inserted into their mobile internet traffic. Through this ads from Verizon and other third parties after a customer’s identification by the supercookie could be delivered. Before this fine, Verizon had earlier allowed its customers to disable the ads program after a probe was initiated by the federal government.

T-Mobile a United States parent company of Deutsche Telekom gained $ 2billion in financing as it prepares for its 600 MHz auction that is scheduled to take place later in the month. It has been predicted that T-Mobile could actually spend well over $10billion on spectrum license during the auction. T-Mobile CEO maintains that the carrier would be vigorous during the auction. This is because it will seek to bid on the spectrum that has for long been outside the reach of Verizon and AT&T.

The 75th Anniversary of that event will occur later this year, on December 7, 2016.

A New Statue

As a component of this year’s Pearl Harbor anniversary events, the U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit organizations, plans to erect a statue at the Pearl Harbor Memorial site in Hawaii according to a article. U.S. Money Reserve’s new commemorative coins relating to the Pearl Harbor attack helped to fund this project.

The Foundation President and CEO, a retired Naval officer, praised the commemorative coins as a fine tribute to members of the Greatest Generation. His organization appreciated the financial support provided by customers of U. S. Money Reserve.

A Timely Work of Art

The Lone Sailor pays a timeless tribute to the dedication of individual sailors who spent long periods of time at sea during World War II. It also seeks to pay respect to sailors serving on U. S. Navy vessels today.

The statue consists of 1700 pounds of bronze mounted on steel. The designer included metal from the U.S.S. Arizona as a part of the underlying base of the statue. During the early morning attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, warplanes dealt a devastating blow to the United States Navy, which had ordered many battle ships to anchor at Pearl Harbor, the home of the Pacific Fleet.

Random Acts Of Kindness And Skout Online Networking

Skout just recently conducted a fascinating survey that was about how people perceive kindness in their lives. The basic principle behind their survey was to get an idea of how we as a society feel about doing or receiving random acts of kindness. The reason behind the survey was to celebrate the International Random Acts Of Kindness Week. Skout wanted to remind its users about this week of kindness, and they wanted to share with the world how kindness is still relevant and important in our busy lives. Even when we are busy and on our phones all the time we can still find a few minutes to be kind to a stranger. We’ll talk more about the survey results that we published on Uloop’s website, and we’ll discuss what it’s like to use Skout to make friends.

Survey Results Are In

The survey results were published on Uloop’s website in hopes that the rest of the world would see how important kindness is to all of us. Kindness makes us feel special. If you see a random act of kindness taking place in front of you, it makes you feel like doing something kind for someone else. We see it, and we want to be part of it. Kindness feels nice to do as well. Have you ever committed a random act of kindness for a stranger?

The survey from Skout indicated some interesting facts about our society that you may not have already known. The survey group consisted of approximately 2,700 individuals out of the millions of people that use Skout to network and make new friends. The majority of the people surveyed for this project were college students, so keep in mind how busy and possibly stressful their lives are when you read the survey results. The survey results showed that 93 percent of the users in the project had already done something kind for a stranger without planning it out.

George Soros Apportions Blame As The European Union Moves Closer To Collapse

Since the first days of its establishment the European Union seems to have lurched from one problem to the next, particularly in terms of powerful leaders looking to force their will on the continent. In the 20th century, British leader Margaret Thatcher proved a thorn in the side of Europe, but her strong negotiating style pales alongside the issues currently being created by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Hedge fund icon George Soros has recently been providing his opinion on the crisis affecting Europe in an interview with his own Website, which explains the bleak future he believes lies in store for the continent.
George Soros has enjoyed a successful career that belies the difficult journey he embarked upon after surviving the Holocaust as a prisoner in a Nazi concentration camp. Soros has been providing his opinion on the current refugee crisis that is affecting Europe in a negative way by looking at all the angles of the problem, including comparing it to his own journey as a refugee to study in London and begin his financial career in New York. The European Union will face a major issue with rising debts and a population crisis being caused by the refugees flooding into Europe from Syria.

Russia has recently taken a lead in Syria, which George Soros believes has been a major miscalculation on the part of European and global leaders. The initial reasons for the Russian entry into the Syrian conflict remain unclear, but the need for a cautious approach in the fight against ISIS is tempered by the needs of Russia to avert its own financial collapse. Rising debts and European Union economic sanctions will combine to cause Vladimir Putin major problems in 2016 and 2017, which Soros fears the Russian leader will try to avert by driving more refugees into Europe.

The European Union is not only facing the issue of a rising refugee problem, but also sees the major nations of Europe looking to position themselves prior to the expected collapse of the single currency Euro zone. The British government are another cause for concern for George Soros, who believes a British exit from the European Union will occur and add to the economic woes of the continent. Soros explains British industrial leaders fear forcing the hand of the government and electorate in favor of the Union because of the backlash they could face if the planned referendum returns the expected no vote.

All these factors are combining in the view of George Soros to provide the perfect storm for an economic and social collapse within the European Union. Not only will Europe face the issues of collapse, but the shockwaves will negatively affect the global economy.

Yeonmi Park’s Tale of Survival and Finding New Hope

Yeonmi Park now enjoys life, living in Seoul, South Korea. She is in her early 20s and is already a well-known public speaker. When Yeonmi was 16 years old, she had lived a life that much of the western world only see depicted in a film. Yeonmi is a defector from North Korea.

Yeonmi was born in 1993, during the heart of a terrible famine and under the rule of the Kim dynasty. She lived in Hyesan with her parents and older sister, enjoying the modest life of an average North Korean girl. The Kim dynasty ruled the land with a hard fist, subjecting the country to great oppression.

“It was dark a lot,” Yeonmi recalled on Daily Mail. “There was, and remains, a single television station that is operated by the regime. We had no running water in our home, and we were often starving. We were once given a single bag of rice to feed three of us for an entire month.”

Yeonmi’s parents made the decision that the family would flee to China. Her father was arrested and imprisoned before plans were complete. Eunmi, Yeonmi’s older sister, fled before Yeonmi and their mother. The remaining two members of the Park family fled with the hired assistance of human smugglers, paid to guide them.

Yeonmi’s mother was extorted shortly after arriving in China. One of the guides threatened to reveal that the Parks were in the country illegally if Yeonmi did not have sex with him. Her mother intervened, offering herself in place of her 13-year-old daughter.

Years later, Yeonmi and her mother fled China. They made their way from China into Mongolia and from there managed to reach South Korea. The two since learned the true meaning of freedom and compassion.

“We did not know these things before leaving North Korea,” Yeonmi said on The Reason. “There are so many things that exist that we did not even have words to describe. We only knew what the regime allowed us to know. I grew up believing that Kim Jong-un could read my mind.”

Yeonmi wrote a memoir about her ordeal and speaks at human rights conventions around the world.




Bruce Levenson Supports Much More Than Basketball

It has been 10 years since Bruce Levenson engineered buying the Atlanta Hawks, a baseball team then owned by Ted Turner. He became the majority stockholder of the group that he organized to buy the team. He led the same group to also buy the Phillips Arena, the Hawks’ home stadium. Then they bought a hockey team: the Atlanta Thrashers. The group decided to sell the Thrashers in 2011. Forbes billionaire Bruce Levenson is the Hawks team manager and is also on the NBA Board of Governors.

Back in 1997 Bruce Levenson was honored by being inducted into the Software and Information Industry Association’s Hall of Fame. He once advised BIA Digital Partners, providers of private equity. He also started TechTarget, was on the Newsletter and Electronic Publishers Association’s (NEPA) Board of directors.

Flavio Maluf Is The Man Behind Eucatex Success

Eucatex is one of the largest wood products manufacturers in the world. The company, which started in 1951, uses raw eucalytus as a staple of its products. Eucatex began its operation primarily producing soft boards. Shortly after its inception, the company started manufacturing tiles and panels. Within 15 years, Eucatex went international and began exporting its products overseas. As Eucatex continued to grow exponentially, the 1980s ended with the company exporting to over 50 companies and splitting into 4 categories: Forrestry, wood, metallic and mineral.

The man behind the company’s extraordinary success is Brazilian business magnate Flavio Maluf. After receiving a mechanical engineering degree, he took a job with Eucatex in 1987. Maluf worked with the family company in several different areas and quickly moved up the management chain. By 1996, he was the lead manager of the industrial section. By 1996, he uncle, who was also Eucatex’s president, invited him to become part of the executive board of the Eucatex Group.

After several years of success under Maluf’s guidance, he was named president in 1997. One of his first initiatives was to revamp the company’s image and begin a new line of products. By 2010, the international market had grown to over 100 countries. Eucatex launched an operation in Salto, under the leadership of Maluf. As Maluf describes it, failure isn’t in his vocabulary. Flavio has spoken up many times about education, but he’s also been called upon for analysis of major business dealings like chemical mergers.

Now that Eucatex has celebrated its 65 years in existence, the company continues to be a global leader. The company is environmentally conscious and manufactures in a way to preserve the environment. The company now employs over 2,000 people and has manufacturing operations in Brazil and Argentina.

Sisterhood in the Soap Kingdom–Queens of Drama

In episode one of Queens of Drama, veteran soap actor Lindsay Hartley comments on the lack of roles for older women, older meaning out of ingénue age range. She is visited by her Passions co-star Chrystee Pharris, who is tired of getting “sidekick” roles, as she has distinct and creative ideas about the types of roles she would like to play.

At a networking party, the two friends meet up with Instagram celeb Crystal Hunt, who rocked the screen in soap roles such as Lizzie Spaulding on Guiding Light and Stacy Morasco in the hit soap opera One Life to Live. In both of these roles she plays a girl who is up to no good, and will do whatever it takes to get what she wants. She does not make a favorable impression on the two “Psssions” stars as she insults Lindsay about her going out for older character roles. This could be the beginning of a beautiful collaboration or the making of “frenemies” for life.

Once General Hospital and Las Vegas star Vanessa Marcil is added to the mix, the conversation takes a more constructive turn, with all of the women agreeing that there is a shortage of quality roles for women and that they have some ideas of the types of roles they would like to play. Vanessa confides that if a project is going to take her away from her child and her farm, it’s going to have to be fun.

After getting an audience with the big queen, Donna Mills, they have a table meeting attended by The Bold and The Beautiful star Hunter Tylo, at the request of Donna Mills, and the group realizes that this project may be more difficult than they thought to get off the ground. Ideas are pitched and squashed and emotions naturally begin to run high.

Not only is the premise interesting, but the characters drive this show with their range of personalities. Although Crystal has done tons of interviews where she refers to them as her friends as she introduces them to Vanessa. They have a common purpose and the strength of talent and experience to make a primetime project happen, the question is if their different styles and personalities will get in the way?

Crystal Hunt has also been on the big screen, in hit movies such as Sydney White, The Derby Stallion, and most recently Magic Mike XXL. She grew up in front of the eyes of soap fans, who are cheering for her and the other daytime drama favorites to succeed.  Crystal Hunt has a massive Facebook fan page following, and can be found interacting with her fans online.

There are only four soap operas left on television, and fans of this enthralling genre are excited to see soap actors back in the spotlight.
