Soros vs. Trump: Soros Wins

There is such an extreme juxtaposition when you compare George Soros to Donald Trump. They are both American billionaires, but that is where the similarities end. And for a variety of reasons, I really love George Soros.

Let’s start with the superficial stuff. George Soros is worth more than $25 billion. He is on Forbes top 10 most wealthy in the world list. Donald Trump is not on that list. He is one of the world’s wealthiest individuals yet he is incredibly humble. The man is not trying to change anything with a tweet or trying to get anybody’s attention. He stays behind the scenes and allows charitable organizations to do his intended work.

Donald Trump is a total attention whore. The childish US president cannot go a day without tweeting. He is also obsessed with his inauguration crowd size and the ratings of his reality television shows. In fact, it seems as though he is more obsessed with himself and the attention that people pay to him than the operation of the United States of America.

George Soros is 86 years old and was born in 1930. He was Jewish, born in Budapest, Hungary and had to endure Nazi occupation. He was able to dodge detection with the use of false identification papers that his father procured. But this did not mean that the teenaged George Soros did not witness terrible things. Over 500,000 Hungarian Jews were exterminated during World War II.

Donald Trump, on the other hand, grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth. His father was worth well over $100 million by the time Donald Trump was a teenager. He was able to attend very prestigious private high schools and his wealth allowed him to dodge the Vietnam War draft due to “bone spurs”. Donald Trump, the self-proclaimed businessman, inherited his wealth from his father. He did not make it, did not grow it and only lost some of it.

George Soros is a completely self-made man. His family was able to evacuate mainland Europe in 1947 when they moved to London. Soros somehow got his way into the prestigious London School of Economics. He would turn that education into an empire worth more than $25 billion.

After graduating, he took a job at a merchant bank where he made connections that allowed him to raise over $12 million for a hedge fund. He immigrated to New York City in order to set that hedge fund up and to make incredibly daring trades. George Soros shorted the British pound to pull in over $1 billion in a single day. That’s when his empire started. Read more on Snopes about George Soros.

George Soros is the self-made American success story. Donald Trump is not. Yet somehow, right-wing politicians and pundits still make an enemy out of Soros.

Jason Hope Of Scottsdale, Arizona Discusses The Evolution Of The Internet Of Things

Jason Hope is the founder of Jason Hope Business Consulting. It guides inventors, entrepreneurs and investors in the fields of technology. Mr. Hope finds technology fascinating and he closely follow trends in the tech world especially when it comes to the IoT.

The following is a brief synopsis of an article Jason Hope has published on Tech.co in the opinion and analysis section of the website.

One of the forecasts that Jason Hope has for the internet of things is that it will probably evolve and change over time into something completely different that what it is today. Hope used the analogy of a web browser of the past to the web browser of today and how they have evolved. Today web browsers look vastly different than they were 10 years ago. The same can be true for the internet of things in the future.

Read more on Crunchbase.

Another forecast given by Jason Hope for the future of the internet of things is that it will provide increased value to all sectors of the economy. Right now the IoT is most famous for providing value for entertainment, gaming and fitness. There can be a shift away from these categories and into retail and industry. The supermarket chain, Kroger is already utilizing IoT technology to help cut down of food waste in its freezers.

As the internet of things becomes more common and prevalent in our society, the internet of things should stop being called a thing. Jason Hope compares the IoT to the world wide web. People used to say I am getting on the world wide web. Now they don’t because it is so common and part of our lives now. The same should occur for the IoT in the future. It won’t be a thing but just a part of our daily life.

Squaw Valley Ski Resort Handles Water Contamination With Extreme Diligence and Care

Squaw Valley Ski Resort recently reported that a problem in the water supply on the upper mountain and as a result, the system had to be shut down. Placer County Environmental Health Department was called, and on Nov. 8th, they investigated and found small amounts of E.coli and coliform bacteria in the system.

 

Andy Wirth, CEO and president, has handled the situation very professionally and kept the entire resort under observation even though only the upper mountain was affected. When the Health Department was called, Wirth also contacted several other water specialists to obtain second opinions on correcting the problem.

 

Since then, the restaurants have been closed on the upper mountain and bottled water is being furnished for all of the guests throughout the resort. Upper Mountain has remained open for skiing from the top to bottom every day, and there have been no reports of anyone getting sick or affected anywhere under these precautions.

 

Andy Wirth Authorized a Public Statement

 

On Wednesday, Nov. 30, Squaw Valley Board of Directors authorized Liesl Kenney, the Public Relations Director of Squaw Valley, to make a public statement about the cause and the progress that was being made.

 

The water experts united in defining the reason for the coliform bacteria entering the upper mountain water system. During the summer, a new system was installed at High Camp and Gold Coast. Then this fall unusually heavy rain led to the inundation of the upgraded water system. At that time, all of the water systems were tested, and the bacteria was found to be limited to the upper mountain system. The contaminated water was never available to the public.

 

The Placer County Health Department has been testing the levels and will continue to do so until the water has returned to normal. Then all of the guests will be informed concerning the water usage at High Camp and Gold Coast, and when it will be reinstated.

 

All of the other facilities will offer full access to all of the guests in the resort. Squaw Valley takes safety issues extremely seriously, and until everything is restored, we will continue releasing updates.

Hospital Copa Star Conserves Energy

Hospital Copa Star is known for a number of things, but mainly for its building. Even though it is concrete that has been used here, but there have been a lot advances in technology that have made it better. The Copa Star has made use of the Penetron System. In this, crystalline technology is used in order to enhance the overall performance of the concrete being used and increase its life span.

The hospital Copa Star aims for energy efficiencies by carefully selecting its building materials. This way the hospital is able to accumulate savings through power consumption throughout the facility. In its Sustainability Report, it cites the connection of energy consumption throughout the hospital system of which the Copa Star is an example of excellence.

As per this report, the energy consumption in hospital plants will be linked to the operation of all its systems. This is because energy usage in a hospital will be occurring through heating, air conditioning, lighting in addition to water pumping, medical equipment besides elevators. There are a lot of direct energy consumption parameters. These would include the fuel being used in supplying of electric power generators. There is a lot of indirect energy being provided in the form of electricity to the public utilities.

Hospital Copa Star has an efficient design that contributes to reducing its energy usage. This happens through a number of processes that are aimed towards reducing energy consumption.

The architectural beauty of Copa Star is through its ventilated façade. This contributes to its aesthetic value as well as to the beauty of its surrounding community. This is also a highly practical function in terms of energy conservation. Creating an air cavity inside this façade has led to a ventilation system that helps to limit gain in thermal heat. Simultaneously it also helps to expel hot air this way. This also helps to reduce the demand on HVAC systems in order to treat outdoor air. This helps to contribute significantly towards energy savings. Read more at SSC Magazine about Hospital Copa Star.

Concrete has a tendency to crack in certain circumstances. This can lead to an intrusion of water inside the porous material. Using of Penetron chemicals helps to strengthen it by offering an alternative. This product is able to trigger a reaction with minerals that are present in concrete and form chemical structures which contain insoluble crystals. The product seeps into the concrete and strengthens it from deep inside. It also allows the building to breathe. Any buildup of vapor pressure tends to get avoided this way. The underground structures of Copa Star have made extensive use of this crystalline technology of Penetron.

This material has been able to meet challenges in this five-floor project. These challenges include having a tight space for construction as there are limitations regarding the height of the building.

How End Citizens United is Transforming its Campaign into Reality

End Citizens United was established on March 1, 2015, as a Political Action Committee. Its goal is to raise funds for Democratic candidates vying for House or Senate seats all over the United States of America. Now, it desires to transform what was once a slogan and campaign into a reality.

 

Formed in 2015, the Committee wanted to grow and play an integral role in the 2016 US Elections. It took this decision as a way of ensuring that politicians do not have to rely on billionaires to fund their political campaigns. The group’s desire is to give control and power back to the electorate.

 

Supreme Court decision inspired its formation

 

The group’s formation took place after the Supreme Court ruling of 2010. The decision, which has come to be known as Citizens United, opened the way for Super PACs and dark money to enter politics. The group hopes that its campaign will lead to a constitutional amendment. As at August 2015, more than 325,000 individuals across the country had signed the group’s petition.

 

During the same period, End Citizens United endorsed 11 Democratic Party candidates.

 

One Among Many Groups Fighting a Similar Battle

 

It’s worth mentioning that End Citizens United is not the first group or organization fighting for campaign finance reform. However, what makes this group different from the rest is the fact that it supports or endorses candidates who want to change the laws governing campaign funds. The team has identified the Koch Brothers as one of the sources of dark money.

 

Some of the strategies it identified for backing candidates who support its objectives include direct mails, TV ads, and polling. To achieve this, it set up an expenditure arm that would operate independently. The expenditure arm would study ways of spending the money raised from the public to support each candidate’s election campaigns.

 

Facing an Uphill Battle

 

Several campaign finance experts have been skeptical about End Citizens United objective. They doubt if the group will succeed with the petition asking for a constitutional amendment of the Citizens United decision the Supreme Court made in 2010. The experts say that the bar for getting the support needed for passing a constitutional amendment is too high.

 

Currently, two-thirds of members of the Senate and the House must consent to any amendment. Apart from this, three-quarters of the states in the country should also ratify the petition. Sunlight Foundation’s policy director, John Wonderlich, says people who choose a path similar to the one End Citizens United has taken face “an uphill battle.”

 

The battle will not be easy since the last constitutional amendment America passed was in 1992.
