The Kims And Vietcong Taken To Task By Thor Halvorssen

He was in Seoul, South Korea, so Thor Halvorssen’s texts and emails were arriving in America during the wee hours of the night. So were his encrypted Wickr shares. It seems Halvorssen does not keep 9-to-5 hours. He is the president of the Human Rights Foundation (HRF), which he also founded in 2005. He is of half Norwegian descent and half Venezuelan and was raised in South America, in Caracas. His ancestry includes heads of state and possible pirates. The Venezuelan King’s government had Halvorssen’s grandfather, Øystein, who was Norwegian, as consul during World War II. It is in Venezuela ports that Øystein advised that all Norway’s merchant vessels be protected after the invasion by Hitler’s German troops.

Thor’s mother is the descendant of Cristóbal Mendoza, who was the first Venezuelan President. She also has some ancestry from “The Liberator”, Simón Bolívar, who was the masterful military and political leader that fought to successfully win Venezuela’s independence from Spain. It should be no wonder that Thor Halvorssen is a staunch believer in the basic rights of all humans as the basis for any good government.

He has very close knowledge of the wrong type of government. His father was persecuted and tortured in prison, in Caracas, after he exposed deep government corruption with the drug cartels of South America. His father was only able to be released after a very intense effort by world aid organizations and world-figure individuals intervened. Later on, at a peaceful anti-Hugo Chávez rally, Thor’s mother was shot, and barely recovered. Several other people were also shot and injured. One person actually died at the hands of the Venezuelan version of the Gestapo. Leopoldo López, Thor’s cousin, is still being held and harmed in a jail in Venezuela.

Thor never lets such challenges get him down. Not in the least. He is upbeat and acts boldly and with great strength to express his love for people and the need for basic human rights for everyone. Thor has also been severely beaten and in 2010 both his camera man and himself were arrested by the Vietnamese government, which has a poor human rights record and policies. They were beaten, but managed to escape after convincing the authorities there that he as becoming a Buddhist. They were able to get video footage of an interview out of the country in the camera man’s butt. It was of an interview with Thich Quang Do, the patriarch of the Unified Buddhist Church of Vietnam. His church has been condemned and banned by the Vietnamese communist authoritarian government.

The Best Ways To Protect Online Reputation

Recently Forbes.com did an article about the importance of reputation protection online. There are many marketing executives that do not understand how important it is to manage a reputation online. A poor reputation online can cost a company millions of dollars. Don Sorensen was interviewed and he is the president of Big Blue Robot. Sorensen had mentioned that he once consulted with a company that had a severe online reputation problem. The 7 Top, Google searches for that company were negative, and the company did not even know it. Because of the poor reputation of the company, that same company was losing almost $2 million a year.

Online reputation management has a huge impact on the revenue of a company; for that reason a company does well to strictly watch their online reputation. It is a good idea to consult with an online reputation management company, because businesses are generally not prepared to have online reputation issues. You can find a bunch of online reputation management company reviews located here. Many of such businesses do not even realize that they have a bad online reputation. Quite often those businesses wonder why there are individuals that are saying bad things about them in the first place. It can be difficult to realize that there are individuals or companies that are making defamatory remarks about a business online. The problem is that when a potential client goes and does a search for that business, the first thing that they will see will be the negative results that come up on the search. Those negative remarks will dissuade those clients from going with that business.

Since businesses are now becoming more and more aware of the importance of hiring online reputation companies, many of these savvy businesses are finding companies that will help them to keep their reputations clean, and help them to keep track of their online reputation management. Many top-level executives can have their names be synonyms with their company. Because of that fact, it is very important for high-level executives to also protect the online reputation of their names. Some key reputation management tactics are the following: own your own search engine results page, be social, blog, think outside the box, have an active public-relations strategy and develop an in-house department to tackle online reputation management issues.

Doe Deere: Making a Statement

 

In a recent article, the brand called Lime Crime was being reviewed. For those of you who haven’t heard of this brand, they feature colorful, vibrant makeup products on their website available to purchase. Doe Deere, the founder and creator of Lime Crime had a vision that she would create bold lip kits, similar to that of Kylie Jenners line, at a reasonable price.

Born in Russia, but raised in New York City, Doe had always had a passion for cosmetics. When she started Lime Crime, she made sure all products would be animal cruelty free, first and foremost. While, in the beginning, her products were mostly vegan free, she later changed that to meet vegan standards. Her inspiration for the line came about when she started making her own clothing- when she realized that there was no makeup bold enough or bright enough to march, she began brainstorming. Lime Crime cosmetics were actually the first on the market to introduce radical lip colors. Unicorn Lipstick, and Velevetine Lipstick are two of the brands most popular buys.

Doe Deere’s obsession with unicorns also inspired this colorful cosmetic line. She wanted to make a line of cosmetics that made a statement and that used all the colors of the rainbow- and she did just that! Lime Crime is significantly less expensive than other lipsticks or lip kits. Since Kylie Jenner went bold with her lips, there are more and more products to give bold lip color, but nothing compared to the colors of Lime Crime! There is much to be said about Doe Deere‘s generosity also- she has donated sixteen thousand dollars to multiple charities.

You can follow this fabulous line of cosmetics and Doe Deere herself, on the Lime Crime Facebook and Instagram for fashion and cosmetic tips, and to see any new products. If you’re looking for bright lip color, Lime Crime is the best route to go. It’s affordable, beautiful and vibrant. They also feature other cosmetics in the line, just as colorful and reasonably priced as the rest. Lime Crime is sure to become one of your favorite cosmetic lines once you give it a try!

Most women have seen the early morning/late night infomercials and facebook pop-up ads about WEN by Chaz hair products. The no-rinse 5-in-one cleansing conditioner is touted as one of the best hair care products to come along in a good while.
Bustle Magazine health and beauty editor Emily McClure decided to test the sephora marketed product for 7 days to see if the product lived up to its reputation. At the end of the 7-day test run, Emily’s verdict was mixed. Pros: the product made her fine hair more manageable. It also added more shine and bounce. The Cons: her roots were left extremely greasy if attempted to skip a day between washes.

Emily says although she had a love/hate relationship with Wen, she would use it for the volume and extra shine it added to her hair.

Chaz Dean hair care products are a revolutionary way to cleanse, moisturize, condition, detangle and strengthen your hair. Created by stylist to the star, Chaz Dean, WEN can be used on all hair types and lacks the harsh elements that are found in regular shampoos.

George Soros Explains the Refugee Crisis in Europe

Billionaire George Soros knows that the current refugee crisis in Europe is wreaking havoc on the EU and the rest of continent. Refugees began a mass exodus from Syria starting in 2013 and by 2015 millions of Syrians have over flooded European borders. Greece is the primary nation on http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-01-07/global-markets-at-the-beginning-of-a-crisis-george-soros-says that is responsible for holding the refugees. However, the EU and the rest of Europe must find a solution to help alleviate this problem. George Soros clearly revealed that European leaders must be proactive with dealing with this current crisis. According to Soros, EU governments must spend billions of dollars right away to get the problem under control and then shift to maintaining the current system on http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/2016/03/10/billionaire-smackdown-george-soros-funds-effort-to-stop-trump-mobilize-latinos/ that they will establish from this effort. George Soros also points out that the current policy set in place by the EU was worked out with Turkey but only enforced by the EU. The currently policy is also seriously underfunded which means that it will be ineffective for combating the problem with Asian and African refugees. The other reason that George Soros gives for the failure of this policy has to do with the fact that very few European countries want it in place. European countries who are required to take in refugees really do not want this problem. However, they must deal with it since they are a part of the EU. Also added to this conundrum is the fact that refugees do not want to reside in just any European nation where they are forced to relocate. Soros also points out that when refugees cross the border they have a tendency to settle into a society and drain it of resources. This has to change. Soros encourages the EU nations to set systems in place that will help immigrants to enter the country and to become contributors to the community where they reside. The key to taking on more immigrants is to have a growing economy that will sustain them. This is the ultimate message that Soros is trying to send to EU governments. Soros’s views on this particular matter is available online at The New York Review of Books. You can access this story by clicking on the previous link. People who are not aware of George Soros, he is the 30th wealthiest person on the Earth. His net worth is in the billions and he is a rare magnate that has immense influence in business, economics and politics. Soros has been around for many years helping to fund political causes, governments and charitable organizations.

VTA Publications Offers Real World Advice And Strategies To Readers

What are the odds that you will be become a success in your lifetime? There are actually many things that play a role in success. Yes, luck is one of them. Inheriting a great deal of money can also increase your chances significantly. However, there are many people who came from nothing to achieve a great deal of wealth and success. Despite how overwhelming the odds may seem, you may be able to beat them.

One of the greatest examples is the 1980 U.S. Hockey team at the Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. They were overwhelming underdogs in the game against the Soviets. Undaunted, Head Coach Herb Brooks didn’t let the expectation of a colossal beat down lower his spirits. Instead, he changed his strategy. Sportscasters and so-called experts berated him for his approach. By sticking to what he knew, Brooks orchestrated one of the biggest upsets in sports history. His team beat Russia 2-1 purely by changing the strategy.

The morale of the story: ignore the odds. Even if the odds against you are seemingly insurmountable, ignore those odds. Change your strategy to stack the odds in your favor. The law of averages is what most people believe. But, you don’t have to be most people. Never let the odds bother you.
