The U.S. Money Reserve Continues To Serve The Public

Published / by FitGuru

In recent years the demand for gold has exploded. In a recent article by the Gold News Network Fold Survey in 2014 wrote that the demand for gold from 2004 to 2013 has increased dramatically by a total of 70 percent. In 2013 according to a prnewswire.com article the ETF Holdings liquified 881 tons of gold in 2013, this resulted in a decrease in the price of gold which was the perfect opportunity for prospective buyers. This was especially true for those individuals that live in China as well as all those who live in the United States that were aware of this incident. You might ask yourself where is all this gold going? The answer is simple, the demand for gold is massive currently and all the gold is being used up by the pure physical demand. This will allow for a shift in the market making the ownership of gold just that much more profitable.

It has been seen in years past that global unrest has typically seen an increase in the price of gold. During difficult times many people seek the proven stability as well as safety of the precious metal, gold. There are many current international issues that we need to be aware of and that effect the price of gold directly. These are the current ISIS terrorist threat, tensions between Japan, China, Russia and the Ukraine as well as the nuclear threat imposed by North Korea and Iran. This uncertain climate has people looking for safe choices for the future. Every member of the public should prepare for an uncertain future and make the wise decision by investing in physical gold. The idea is to move away from paper currency as these have shown in the past to be very unstable as the governments that print them can crumble at any time.

The U.S. Money Reserve is glad to help all customers wanting to make the transition to precious metals for their personal portfolios. There is the availability of a free gold information kit which will provide the customer with all the necessary information to make a step in the right direction. The U.S. Money Reserve has had a proven track record for over a decade of helping clients diversify their asset securely and safely.

GoFundMe Campaign for Stray Animals

Published / by FitGuru

Unfortunately, there are more and more stray animals that need our care and support. These animals are walking the streets hungry and in need of shelter. Many shelters that are providing these services do not have enough funds to treat the animals with the care they deserve. For that reason Ross Abelow has started a GoFundMe campaign to benefit stray animals.

Ross Abelow has set a goal of raising $5,000 to benefit shelters around New York city. The funds will be used for medical care, vaccines, blankets and food primarily. Many shelters are running short and critically need new supplies to protect dogs, cats and other stray pets. This is especially important in the winter time when many stray animals are left in the cold to die. Unless shelters act quickly and have enough resources to keep these animals, more could perish.

Mr. Abelow has an impressive record helping the community and of legal work. His practice primarily focuses on the entertainment law, family law and commercial litigation at his firm, Abelow & Cassandro LLP. Due to his record both as a lawyer and in helping the community, Mr. Abelow’s reputation continues to improve.

Entertainment law concerns areas such as much, video and intellectual property of these assets. Entertainment lawyers focus on ownership of intangible assets such as movies, television programs and music videos. They help to negotiate distribution agreements and ownership. Family lawyers represent different family members in custody disputes, estate disputes and child protection among other jobs. Commercial litigation runs the spectrum of business disputes including contract disputes, anti-trust complaints, product liability, trademarking, copyrights and a number of other issues. They tend to end in a financial settlement between the parties but can also go to trial. Mr. Abelow competently performs all of these types of law.

His distinguished career has made him one of the most well-known lawyers in the New York area. He also comments regularly in online publications such as Mashable and his personal Facebook page. He will continue to help New Yorkers through his legal work and community service. Mr. Abelow hopes to reach his $5,000 goal on GoFundMe and protect as many helpless stray animals as he can.

Who Does George Soros Support?

Published / by FitGuru

It’s no surprise that the name George Soros is popping up in relationship to the donations given during the 2016 presidential election. He is well known for his financial prowess, and for his 1992 bid against the British pound where he made almost $1 billion. It’s no secret that he has a knack for knowing what is going on in the financial and political worlds.

This year politico.com reported, he’s keeping an eye on the donation rotation for the presidential race. Inn the early part of 2015, he donated $2 million to two different political action committees – or PACs – that support Hillary Clinton. One remains nameless, but the other is named Priorities USA Action. In the latter half of 2015, he donated an additional $6 million to Priorities USA Action. Overall, he has donated $8 million to support Hillary Clinton.

Soros is one of the biggest donors to the democratic campaigns. In past years, he has donated much more than the $8 million he’s donated so far this election season. When people were attempting to oust President George W. Bush in 2004, Soros donated well over $20 million to help in the cause.

When that campaign failed, he dialed his spending way back. Instead of giving large eight digit contributions, he’s given much smaller contributions. In 2008, he gave $1 million to support democratic candidate Barack Obama over Hillary Clinton. That year, he wanted to support Hillary Clinton for one particular reason over Obama: he liked that Clinton was open to talking about policy with him, whereas Obama was not up for that.

Between then and now, he’s given very little to support anyone in the elections. Now that he has donated $8 million, he should be watched carefully. Whom he supports is as important as how much he gives.

Plastic Surgery Basics

Published / by FitGuru

There are a lot of reasons you may choose to have plastic surgery, but you should look at the different options available to you. This way you can make a choice that will be best for you.

Where to Start

There are a lot of things you should think about. One of the most important is to choose a Dr that is going to fit you. This means you should ask questions. These questions can be simple enough. The biggest question you want to ask is what they do for a specialty. If they are like Dr Jennifer Walden, they will walk you through everything that you may need to know. They will give you a consultation that will help you understand what you are going to be going through.

Another thing you may want to do is research. This way you know what the Dr has already done and what they do well. You can also find out if there are any reviews for the Dr and clinic you will be working with. Dr Jennifer Walden is one of those that use their clinic for everything they may need to have done. She has seen it all and done everything at least once, but she enjoys what she is doing. That makes a huge difference in how a patient feels.

What to Ask

Once you have found a Dr that you feel comfortable with, you can start asking the questions that are important. The first one is obviously if they are licensed. If they are not, then you don’t want to waste your time on them. You do better with Licensed Drs because they have been through the training. It is also illegal for Drs to work in the industry without it.

Another thing to ask is about the surgery itself. This way you know what to look for and you know the risks. A good Dr will walk you through everything including the risks you may be dealing with. They may also be able to give you an idea of what the completed surgery will look like.

Take all the time you need in order to find the Dr that is going to be right for you. This way you will be happy with your work and the way you look after. Visit her website for news and appointments.

The New Batch of FreedomPop’s Funding

Published / by FitGuru

As a startup, FreedomPop has had to do a considerable amount of fundraising. This is natural for a new company looking to expand its services. However, FreedomPop has made a major dent in its industry rather quickly. The startup based out of LA has been working in the mobile phone industry for only three years now, and yet it is starting to change the world and how consumers look at their mobile phone bills. Most customers who look at their mobile bills monthly and who use a major service provider would agree they are paying way too much money for their services. FreedomPop has set out to change that, first within the United States, and secondly outside of the U.S. to an international market. That is what the last batch of fundraising has been about for FreedomPop. The company wants to offer inexpensive international calling services, which is exactly why it is doing everything it can to make sure customers can find the right service at the right price.

Recently, FreedomPop brought in $50 million through its fundraising. It has been able to take this money and invest it back into the company by working with international service providers. With the deals, FreedomPop can offer individuals some rather inexpensive services when they travel overseas.

While the services work in 25 countries now, it is the plan to extend this beyond 40 countries by the end of the year. There are two different service plans put into place for this. The first is a global Hotspot service. By paying $49.99, individuals have access to this Wi-Fi connection. When hooked up through Wi-Fi, they are able to access unlimited text, voice and data. Of course, an individual is not always going to be able to connect to the Wi-Fi while they are traveling. When this is the case, for just $10, an individual can purchase an international SIM card from FreedomPop. This SIM card gives them access to 200 MB of data throughout these 25 (soon to be over 40) countries. If they need more data, they can purchase 500 MB increments at $10 a pop.

George Soros Market Strategy Baffles Investors

Published / by FitGuru / 1 Comment on George Soros Market Strategy Baffles Investors

 

Billionaire George Soros is an extremely influential person in the world of business. This Hungarian-Jewish businessman is one of the richest men in the world. When Soros does something within the market, many people follow his movements. In January of 2016 The Street reports, Soros had his fund company dump all of their shares of Chevron, NRG Energy and Cheasapeake Energy in February of 2016. When Soros had his company make this move many business insiders began to speculate. They somehow wondered if Soros could see some type of problem starting to form within the energy industry.

Fuel prices have been at an all-time low since 2015. Consumers might not mind the low prices but energy companies are suffering. An energy company cannot survive over a long period of time when fuel prices are low. The reason being is that low prices drives down demand. Once this happens, consumers will get use to spending less on fuel and a company will not be able to earn a profit.

When fuel prices are set to normal rates, energy companies can make steady profits. Consumer demand will be optimal and companies will be able to competitively adjust their prices. This will fuel more competition and keep consumers searching for the best prices on fuel. A few companies will then emerge over the rest in terms of fuel sales. This will happen because they are offering the best rates on fuel prices within the market.

Do not forget that at least 9% of all people are employed in the energy field. Also, nearly all workers are dependent upon energy field for transportation and heating needs. If the energy industry starts to fail then other sectors of the economy.

Here is something else to consider about Soros’s actions. Back in 1992 when the British pound was in trouble; Soros did a short sale of British pounds and made 1 billion dollars. He sold 10 billion to get back that one on the short sale. The point is that Soros knew when to dump his stocks and took the price cut. He still came out on top in terms of the deal. So, many critics are wondering if Soros is taking the same approach with the current situation regarding energy.

People can find out more information about Soros activity by reading the article Week Ahead in Energy: Does George Soros Know Something We Don’t?. It will give some insight into Soros’s reasons for taking this action with energy stocks. After reading the article people should be able to speculate and draw their own conclusions.

Fabletics Expanding IRL

Founded by world famous actress Kate Hudson, Fabletics offers a line of wearable, stylish activewear for women of all ages and body shapes. Fabletics has filled the need for affordable sportswear that has been previously lacking from the fashion industry. Not only are the clothes available at a reasonable price, they look and feel as luxurious as the more expensive brands on the market. Since its inception in 2013, Fabletics has grown and expanded into an international success.

As reported by Racked, Fabletics has plans to add to its seven brick and mortar stores now in operation. The company reports growth of 75 to 100 new stores to open in the future. In addition to the wide array of products customers can browse when they purchase from Fabletics, the company includes a monthly subscription service. Each month, discounted outfits will be sent to those apart of this service, giving shoppers access to the latest trends designed by the company.

Fabletics isn’t just for women, either. In June of 2015, the company launched FL2, the activewear line designed exclusively for men. Modeled along the same lines of the original line, Fabletics is devoted to providing clients with functional clothes that people want to wear. The online website begins with a pop quiz to build a shopper’s profile. Stylists then select pieces that match a shopper’s personality, lifestyle needs, and individual style. If the first purchase is just a test, the customer can check out as a guest. Otherwise, they can sign up for the VIP program and subscription service, getting up to 50% off items of clothing. Kate Hudson herself also provides her top picks for customers to see and potentially buy.

Male of female, Fabletics encourages everyone to “Live Their Passion”, and hope their clothes can makes this goal a little easier to achieve.
