Keith Mann and the NYPD

Police brutality has made many national headlines in the past few years. From the killings of innocent people to how they have handled peaceful protests around the nation, there have been many who have paused to question, ponder, and look for ways to explain what our police have done. However, many find themselves pushing the blame to the police – not those who have been hurt, and those who may have done what they should have to avoid it.

Keith Mann lives in New York, and has been working as a hedge fund compensatory for over 15 years. In this tumult of charges against police, and many beginning to distrust their own police squads, Mann has decided to do something good for the police in the New York Police Department. In February of 2015, he decided to get the police in the 54th Street precinct lunch.

Mann has a reason for being so vehemently nice to the police when everyone is avoiding them. His wife’s uncle is a cop in the New York City area, and he doesn’t want to see the family be hurt in anyway. He notes that, despite what’s going on in the world and in people’s heads, cops are trained to handle situations that many civilians will never voluntarily be in. They are not trained to handle the stress that the cops face on an every day basis.

This gesture is more touching when it comes from someone like Kieth Mann. When it comes from a person who has gone through trials, tribulations, and has had tough encounters with the police, a gesture of kindness in this time where everyone seems to be against cops is certainly welcome. Follow Keith on VimeoTwitter, and Facebook to stay up to date on his charitable contributions!

The First Week of 2016 Closes Higher

In the first week of 2016, the U.S. Stocks have closed higher than they were at the beginning. This is looking like good news for investors. Among the factors that have contributed to the higher closing of stocks is the recovery of oil from the multi-year low. One thing that raised the prices of oil is that there was hope for an overseas stimulus. Overall, the US stock market has closed at a higher price than it opened. There are other stocks within the U.S. market that have closed higher than before. There is a lot of attempts to try to explain away the higher prices in the close.

One person who had something to say was Joe Sowin, who has attributed the results of the higher close to short covering. Joe Sowin runs the department of global equity trading at Highland Capital Management which was founded by James Dondero. Jim Dondero himself has plenty of experience when it comes to making the most profitable investments. He also knows how to analyse the market in order to come up with an accurate prediction of where the price action may go. With more than 30 years of experience, it is no surprise that Jim Dondero is able to make the wisest investments.

Among the types of trading that Jim has focused on was High Yield investing. For one thing, having high returns is one thing that many people dream about when investing. It takes a lot of homework and experience to be able to pull it off. Along with his work as an investor, James is also involved in philanthropic activities. He helps out with charitable causes in areas such as veteran’s affairs, education, and public policy. He also works in other industries and is chairman of companies like MGM Studios.

The stocks have shown a lot of promise in the first week. However, it is very important to learn about the recent troubles that the stock market have been facing and all of the factors that cause it. For those to be able to profit greatly from stocks it involves knowing the history of the company or the asset that one is going to invest in. For one thing, even with the higher close, stocks were still at a yearly low. One area that seems to be thriving in the market is the home market which has risen as high as 14.7 percent.

Skout Releases New Year’s Survey

  • January 25, 2016
  • Apps

Skout has recently released the results of a survey of almost four thousand of its users. The survey analyzed the role that friends play in a variety of pursuits. It found that friends are a major factor in meeting a variety of goals and that they can be a significant factor in determining success of failure.

In particular, it found that friends played a major role in weight loss, romance, and finances. The survey shows that friendly encouragement does more encourage success in weight loss than gadgets or programs do. It also found that people are starting to favor blind dates over more open relationships, and that introductions from friends are the best source of those dates. Skout also found that people who have more friends are more likely to be promoted and work and that friends often encourage each other to save money.

In short, the survey discovered that the best way to succeed with a New Year’s resolution is to have supportive friends. They can make it easier to meet essentially any goal, and in some cases they’re almost a requirement. People who are looking for beauty, wealth, and love are all in the same boat: they all benefit from a helping hand from their friends.

Skout is a popular mobile application that helps people meet new people and make new friends. It works like a social network, but unlike most other social networks it is designed to make introductions between strangers rather exclusively helping to keep existing friends in touch with each other. Users sign up and fill out a profile to help Skout match them with people that they will probably like, and then they can view other profiles and make contact with people who look interesting.

There are a few bonus features that make it even easier to find new friends. Skout users can filter their list of potential matches to only show people who are near them in order to ensure that they only chat with people that they can meet in person. It also offers a random matchmaking feature starts a chat between two random users and only reveals their names and profiles after they have been chatting for forty seconds. It’s a good tool for making new friends, and as the survey has shown, that can make all the difference when it comes to keeping a resolution and succeeding with life goals.

These Pictures and Videos Are Hard Not to Love

Being a great photographer takes more than a good camera and the right equipment. Great photographers have a special talent, and it’s not taught. There is an element of creativity in great photographers thats hard to explain, but everyone sees that creativity in their work. Jon Urbana is one of those great photographers that brings inanimate objects alive through his lenses.

Jon Urbana’s photographs can be seen all over the Internet. His videos especially show the depth of creativity that Jon possesses. Whether Urbana is shooting a scene in a tropical paradise or one cup of tea in a garden, viewers share the excitement of being where Jon is through his pictures.

But there’s more to Jon that good photography. Jon is a star Lacrosse player, and he shares his love of the sport with other Lacrosse lovers through his Next Level Lacrosse Camp in Denver. Lacrosse players have the opportunity to work with lacrosse pros and learn the fundamentals as well as advanced knowledge of how to play the game.

Urbana also loves to help others. He recently founded the Animal Rescue and Adoption Society to help abandoned cats find a home. The Animal Rescue and Adoption Society is a non-profit organization in the Denver area. So far, Jon’s organization has found homes for hundreds of cats that would have been destroyed. Urbana also started a CrowdRise campaign to help fund his non-profit and the response has been better than expected. Cat lovers all over the country (like PJ Tortorello) are donating money to save stray cats.


Being a cat lover and environmentalist keeps Urbana busy. Jon is a big supporter of Earth Force and he recently open a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to help save the environmental. The GoFundMe campaign is another Urbana that contributes to the world good.

When Jon is not raising money or playing and teaching Lacrosse, he is piloting a plane and taking pictures. His photos of clouds bring a sense of peace and tranquility to those that watch his videos. There’s no better way to connect with inner peace than to watch Jon watch the clouds moving through his lenses.

George Soros Open Society’s Fate in Russia.

 

 

The latest news coming out of Moscow presents a big blow for the free society movement. George Soros must be devastated. Local authorities in the Komi province in Northern Russia have targeted, confiscated and burned libraries donated by two Open Society Foundations in Russia.

 

It all started in 2015 when the state banned pro-democratic charities affiliated to George Soros. The ban came in the wake of a country release by the Prosecutor’s office claimed that these groups posed an enormous security threat to Russia. The threat emanates from Soros’ criticism of Russia’s aggressive policy towards Ukraine. Also, his foundations are accused of spreading ideas that do not conform to the government’s plan.

 

Experts see the move as retaliation for Soros’ comments. Indeed, George Soros is an influential global figure. George Soros’ relationship with eastern European states goes way back to the 1930’s. He was born in Budapest, Hungary during the antagonistic era leading up to the Second World War. Growing up in Budapest, George understood the need to travel far and wide in search of a better future.

 

The determination and passion he showed early in life led him to new opportunities in London. He attended the London School of Economics for a degree in Political Science and Economics. During his duration at the University, George engaged in the economic and political debate of the time. Upon graduation, he ventured into hedge fund management with upcoming companies in London.

 

George was always a smart investor whose skillful administrative techniques endeared him to investors and other companies. The career growth path took him to New York City in the US. At the time, all the largest hedge funds and investment banks in the world were based in the U.S. After decades of excellence, he established Soros Fund, his investment bank today rebranded as Quantum fund.

 

During the same time, Soros’ remained true to his background. He would be touched by the plight of the suffering and oppressed societies around the world. George made individual contributions for courses such as the Apartheid struggle by blacks in South Africa. The support came in the form of legal representation and scholarships for children from black communities.

 

Eventually, Soros became a philanthropist and formed the Open Society Foundations. As the leader, George coordinates networks, projects and partners in over a hundred nations across the five continents. The uniting factors among these foundations include accountability, transparency, democracy and truths of life.

Handy to Corner Home Services Market

  • January 11, 2016
  • Tech

What has been an unsuccessful venture for Homejoy Inc., may be a windfall for Handy. Both companies are start-ups in the new home services booking app market. Homejoy announced in a blog post on its website, five months ago, that it would cease to provide it’s home cleaning and repair service app. More recently, they have made the final move by filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy in San Jose. While it appeared the company was expanding from not only offering home cleaning services, but also home repairs and carpet cleaning, they have stated that “unresolved challenges in the home services space” was creating significant obstacles for the company.

The fall of Homejoy may lead to the rise of Handy Technologies Inc., which is an already established home cleaning broker service. Handy has garnered $50 million in backing from several investors including Fidelity Management Co., Highland Capital Partners and others. As a matter of fact, Handy hitting a milestone of one million dollars in bookings in a week solidified confidence from potential investors. It seems as if co-founders, Hanrahan and Dua have found the right formula for success in this emerging market. The idea was birthed when they themselves had a need for a handyman to assemble furniture, and found how difficult it was to quickly find and schedule basic in-home services.

For both client and employee, Handy offers reliability and efficiency. Freelance workers who would otherwise be unemployed have found decent pay and control of their own destiny by signing on with Handy. Earnings range between $15 and 22$ per hour, and you have the freedom to choose only the assignments that best fit your schedule. This is perfect for parents who prefer to schedule work around the running of their household. For the client, Handy offers employees who have been thoroughly screened with not only background checks, but also references. New services are being offered to potential clients, which include interior painting, moving help, hanging of light fixtures and assembly of IKEA furniture are all being tested as future offerings. Handy will likely continue its upward growth well into the new year by avoiding the pitfalls that Homejoy experienced.
