Is Donald Trump Helping ISIS? George Soros Thinks So.

George Soros is well respected for his views on world economic events and policies. George Soros had an interesting journey from his youth to where he is today. He was a refugee from Hungary during World War II, first migrating to Europe, and then making his way to New York City. It was in New York City that he launched his investing career at F.M. Meyer and Wertheim & Co in the 1950s. “Migrants in those days were better treated,” George Soros said. He added, “now that I am a bit of a statesman, my loyalty is for the stateless people.”

In his interview with Bloomberg’s at the World Economic Forum Francine Lacqua asked George Soros, “How worried are you by the popularity of Donald Trump?” In his response Mr. Soros stated that Mr. Trump is doing the work of ISIS, and before that Al Queda, in playing on Western Civilization’s fear of death. Mr. Soros explained that Mr. Trump is playing on this fear of death by creating fear of Muslims within America. Through Mr. Trump’s plans to close the U.S. borders to Muslims for immigration or for visiting while on holiday, this stirs Americans’ fear of Muslims.

Mr. Soros acknowledges that Mr. Trump is compelling in what he says since it is “so elemental.” However, Mr. Soros went on to say that he knows this is wrong because it is wrong to do what your enemies want you to do. ISIS desires that we have a strong fear of Muslims and treat Muslims with great suspicion. When this becomes common practice, it sets up conditions, which then can create a generation of Muslims that are convinced that there is no other way than terrorism. When this happens, Mr. Soros explains, “it turns the young Muslim population into a breeding ground for terrorists.”

  1. Soros went on to say that, ISIS’ days within the Caliphate are numbered as the Iraqi and Syrian armies regain territories that had been lost to ISIS. This leaves as their big area of growth being able to exploit Western society’s fear of death to their advantage to further their power. Mr. Soros charges us to resist the fearmongering that is going on so that we do not do what our enemy wants us to do.

The Rise Of Marcio Alaor

Marcio Alaor is the vice president of BMG. He works to provide the bank with the best of the best and gives clients of the bank everything that they want. As an executive of the bank, there are many things that he is able to do, but this was not always the case.

As a young man, Marcio Alaor worked shining shoes for people who had high-paying and powerful positions. While he was just a shoe shiner, he still took a lot of pride in the work that he did. He made sure that he not only did the best job possible but that he also made the clients who came to him feel comfortable. He often made conversation and eventually started having a business friendship with one of the executive’s whose shoes he shined on a regular basis. This executive was someone who worked for the BMG bank.

The executive liked the work that Marcio did. While it did not take a lot of effort to shine a pair of shoes, Marcio put everything he had into doing it. The executive recognized that Marcio Alaor had a strong work ethic and he knew that he would be a great fit for the bank that he worked at. He also knew that it would be too much to put Marcio Alaor into a position that took a lot of experience or education. Since he wanted to give him a chance, he offered Alaor an entry-level banking position at the BMG bank.

Marcio Alaor did not disappoint anyone with the talents that he had at the bank. While he had no formal education, he managed to do better than some people who had a large amount of training. He remained extremely dedicated and never stopped working to be the best. Like he did when he was shining shoes, Marcio Alaor took a great deal of pride in the work that he did while he was working in the entry-level position. He remained dedicated despite the great deal he had landed.

After getting the banking position, his drive toward success never stopped. He made sure that he was always pushing to be better and to do more for the bank. He always took pride in the opportunities that he was given and made sure that everyone who worked underneath him was given the opportunity to succeed if they had the right amount of drive and dedication. Despite the fact that he is now the vice president of the bank, something he had only dreamed of in the past, he still strives to be better for himself and for the other people who are members of the bank. He will never give up the drive.

The Fat Lady Has Sung for the European Union

On November 9, 2007, the European Union’s Euro currency was at its peak exchange rate with 1.00 Euro equal to 1.47 United States Dollar. Investors were buoyed by the potential success of this amazing European Union of nations – declaring it as a model for the world. In 2016, George Soros is warning that the European Union may be about to collapse. So what has changed so dramatically in nine years?

“Money Makes the World Go Round”

Billionaires George Soros and Jim Rogers ran the infamous Quantum Fund, which enjoyed record profits for decades. For this reason, the financial community trusts all that Soros says. Soros has paid his dues and demonstrated his expertise.

Just like a business, nations depend upon money for their affairs. Police, soldiers, bureaucrats and politicians all depend on a government paycheck for their livelihood. Nations with healthy finances, naturally prosper.

“Government Sovereign Bonds”

The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is an estimate of the value of an entire nation’s productivity. Wealthy investors, institutions, businesses, banks and other nations invest in the sovereign bonds of a nation. When a country is successful, it can attract more buyers who will naturally want to enjoy higher profits.

Nations with poor productivity must offer higher interest rates to encourage more investment. In 2008, a number of European Union nations – Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Italy – faced serious financial problems. As of 2016, Greece, Spain and Portugal still remain on “financial life support.”

“Why Does Soros Predict Impending Collapse”

When a company has higher debits than credits, it might file for bankruptcy. Greece has basically done the national equivalency of bankruptcy by defaulting on its debt. Greece simply stopped paying the investors of its sovereign debt.

George Soros has warned viewers of CNBC that the European Union may collapse. The nations of the European Union are no longer acting in concert. Refugees, economics and the environment are just a few of the issues causing serious division.

Unemployment rates are very high in the European Union as debt continues to increase. At a certain point, nations will face an impossible debt load, from which they cannot escape. George Soros believes that these high debt loads are one of the many reasons why the European Union will fail.

Andy Wirth And Squaw Valley Alpine Looking to Turn Corner

In recent years, the economy hasn’t been all that kind to the Lake Tahoe community of ski resorts. Now, all of this is not on the shoulders of the resorts themselves. Extensive droughts have drastically reduced the amount of snow falling on the regions. Falling snow is the lifeblood of these communities. While areas such as Squaw Valley do offer spring and summer activities outside of skiing, the majority of business comes from vacationers looking to hit the slopes. With a lack of snow, this has handcuffed the industry a bit. Andy Wirth, the CEO of Squaw Valley Alpine Ski, knows this all too well.

In an article originally published in December, 2015 by the Reno-Gazette Journal, it points out the problem has not only been due to the lack of snow, but also political issues through the form of incorporation. This has made it difficult for many towns and lodges to go about business as usually. Andy Wirth though now sees light at the end of the tunnel. He stated that while it has been a rather tough four years for the company, it nows looks as if snow storms are starting to pile up new, fresh snow while bringing in tourists and visitors to enjoy the winter wonderland.

Beyond the fresh blankets of snow, backers of incorporation have started to lay off the civic climate and are no longer pushing to incorporate what is known as Olympic Valley. Andy Wirth and Squaw Valley spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to oppose this incorporation, as it would have resulted in drastically higher taxes on both residents inside the valley and businesses. This would have put local businesses out of work and would have cost the industry potentially millions of dollars annually.

Andy Wirth has been the CEO of Squaw Valley for several years now. He has spent almost his entire professional career in the hospitality business. He received his education in hospitality so he understands not only the business aspect of it but the industrial aspect of it as well. While working his way up, he has also spent the majority of his time within get Colorado Rockies area, so not only does he understand the business and industry, but he understands the region, which makes him that much more valuable of a CEO.

While the last several years have proven challenging for the industry, Andy Wirth sees bright skies ahead.

Visual Search and Ai Will Allow People to Have a Virtual Shopping Assistant

The Internet has changed dramatically over the past few decades. What was once a strange piece of high technology has become commonplace. In fact, an entire generation has now grown up never having lived in a world that wasn’t digitally connected. During that time it’s gone from a system that was little more than small personal pages to something that functions as both library and mall. But through all of the changes there’s been some things which have remained the same. But a recent article in the MIT Technology Review points out that this might be changing. One piece of legacy technology is finally making way for something new. The old is traditional text based search engines, and the new is AI based visual search engines.

The article brings up the fact that people typically browse by sense of sight. Few people choose items based solely on a list of features. Instead when people look for a variety of items, they tend to do it by contrasting and comparing based on sight. They find something they like the looks of and then compare it to other items with similar traits. This helps them to refine their idea of what they’re looking for. But search engines up to this point have been based more along the lines of a checklist.

But several companies are changing how this is done. There’s a few in particular which are ahead of the rest. But one of the most noteworthy is a company called Slyce. One of their biggest breakthroughs has come about through the use of distributed networking in relation to deep learning algorithms. Deep learning is a subset of the AI field. And the combination of AI and Visual Search has proven very successful. But it also requires extremely powerful hardware that’s beyond the scope of both desktop computers and smartphones. But Slyce has created a system of powerful servers within their own network.

Slyce’s servers wait for a signal from devices that make use of their API. This might come from a smartphone, or from the website of someone who has a catalog of products to sell that have visual components. Slyce’s powerful learning servers are then able to process the images and make decisions based on the results. For example, it might notice someone’s interest in boots that have a certain visual style to them and then offer suggests about similar boots or even outfits at the same store.
