The District Attorney for San Francisco is George Gascon. He is also the chief of police in the city, and this makes him be very close to the police union. However, in the recent past, George Gascon has been criticizing this police union a lot. He claims that the union is an obstructionist. Before this, the district attorney did not have any interest in the police, but he made some disparaging remarks recently. The comments were made when the chief of police was out drinking with some of his friends in the union.
Former president of the Police Officers Association known as Gary Delagnes declared this information in a sworn declaration. Gascon set up a force referred to as the blue ribbon, and this is where the sworn statement was made. The force was created mainly to investigate the allegations that had been issued about racism and homophobia in the police department.
Before Gascon appeared on the blue ribbon panel, Gary Delagnes made the declaration. In his testimony, Gascon said that the department of the police was affecting the ability of the chief to effectuate reforms, and it was not affecting the department positively.
Gary Delagnes is very experienced in the police department. He has served in the department for more than two decades, and this has enabled him to have a lot of experience and expertise. He was in charge of the POA presidency for a duration of over nine years, and he retired from the position in 2013. While in the force, Delagnes was also a very famous person. He would throw verbal punches to the individuals in the department, all the time. This was also evident when he was making the declaration to the blue ribbon force.
In the year 2010, Delagnes was invited to a dinner where Gascon was also attending. The current president of POA, Mr. Martin Halloran was also attending. There were also several union representatives. The main reason for the dinner was to attend a union leadership forum that was organized by Harvard Law School.
During the 2010 dinner, Gascon got too drunk, and this made him lose control of himself and he made some statements about his tenure when he was working for the police department in Los Angelis. The remarks he made were disparaging the minorities, something that did not go well with many people. Many people have criticized the comments, and they have put the attorney in a lot of trouble.

A recent announcement that gasoline prices are going up in Venezuela on CNN was not much of a surprise. It was however, hard to understand just how much because the exchange rate between the Dollar and the Venezuelan Bolivar changes a lot and there is more than one rate.
Along with the announcement, President Nicolas Maduro also announced a change in the official exchange rate, which makes a Bolivar worth about 10 cents in U.S. currency, which is up from six cents in the old system.

There is another system as well, for Venezuelan citizens to use. This is called the SAMADI rate, and according to this rate a Bolivar is worth only about one cent.

Making it even more confusing is the fact that most people like Norka Luque in Venezuela, and many tourists, use the black market to exchange currencies. One U.S. dollar on the black market goes for 1,045 Bolivars. To show how inflation is out of control in that country, the rate on the black market a year ago was 190 bolivars to a U.S. dollar.

There is also a fourth exchange rate that Maduro recently announced. This rate allows Venezuelans to legally buy U.S. dollars for investment purposes, but Norka says its sad cause there is a limit on how much they may get. This rate changes, or floats, depending on a variety of factors.

Venezuela is currently in a financial crisis due to tumbling oil prices.

 

Women in film have been leading ladies for a long time, but they are getting more and more into production every year. Queens of Drama is a show about actresses who want to make their own show as a change from what they normally do. There are many women on the crew of Queens of Drama, and they include photographer Crystal Hunt. They are all daytime actresses who want to make a change, and they will be able to work in front of and behind the camera. The idea behind the show is that these women are trying to create and pitch a program that is going to get a pilot order.

The show has all these women playing their different roles on the team, and Crystal Hunt is the one with the most Hollywood experience. She has acted in the Magic Mike movies, and people around America know who she is because of other appearances she has made outside of her daytime TV show. She is a great actress who makes the group look more youthful, and she is participating in writing and production for the show.

Queens of Drama takes place in real time as the women try to do all the different things that are needed to make their show work. They are trying to sell their show to a network while developing it at the same time. There is a lot to be done to help get the show going, and all the women are doing different things that contribute to the group. They are all working toward a common goal, and they are all going to be able to benefit from it when the show gets picked up. They have a goal of getting picked up by the end of their season.

There are a lot of people who are trying to make sure that they are getting ahead in Hollywood, but the women of Queens of Drama are doing the most about it. They include Crystal Hunt who is going from daytime and movie star to production, but she will still be on screen when they finally get started filming their show. The show is a look at what it is like for women to get ahead in Hollywood, and it is a look at how hard it is to get any TV show going because there are so many hoops to jump through every day.  See Crystal and the ladies in their most recent interview.

The American billionaire, Mr. George Soros said that there is a similarity between the current debt-field economy in China and the United States’ economy in 2007-2008 that was powered by credit growth. China should view the growth of its credit figures in March on as a cautioning sign. The country had new credit worth 326 billion dollars (2.34 trillion yuan) in March, which was greatly beyond the Bloomberg survey’s average prediction of 1.4 trillion yuan.

According to Mr. George Soros,’ the banking system of China has fewer deposits and more loans, and it is also having difficulties in the assets and liabilities side. Some banks are struggling to an extent that they have to lend each other and that leads to unpredictability and insecurity. China keeps postponing the problem for years, but it keeps growing the more it is deferred.

The rate of economic growth in China on  rose in March as the availability of new credit facilitated the recovering of the property sector. The value of houses in the first class cities has increased, whereby, there is a 62 percent annual increase in the price of new homes in Shenzhen. The real estate sector in China may however only be stable for a short time similar to that of the United States in 2005 and 2006.

The Chinese credit has attracted the attention of Andrew Colquhoun, who works at Fitch Ratings as the head of Asian Pacific Sovereigns. George Soros thinks that China’s economy is likely to be wrecked later by what is currently powering it since they are substantially accumulating debts. China’s sovereign debt is rated A+ by the Fitch Ratings.

China’s anti-corruption campaign pushes capital outflows on, and this makes investors nervous hence motivating them to withdraw their money. Despite the country’s reserves growing by 10.3 billion dollars to make it 3.21 billion in March, in has decreased by 517 billion dollars over the past year. According to George Soros, diversification needs to exist for wealth to come out. A good example of the China’s capital controls is the withdrawal of a 14 billion dollars offer that the Anbang Insurance Group Co. had for the Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide Inc.

Soros supports the foreign exchange policy of China whereby they link the yuan to an expansive basket of currencies and not just the dollar. The system reduces the danger of competitive devaluation. He also suggests that the chaos in the markets have been calmed by the increasing coordination between China and the United States. The Chinese services sector is becoming stronger, but it is harder to increase its productivity than in manufacturing.

The Life of George Soros

James Dondero is a special kind of investor. Dondero has been traveling around the world for the last 25 years building a a company that is now one of the top investment firms in the industry. Dondero started Highland Capital Management with partner Mark Okada in 1992. The two men knew enough about collateralized debt and risk management to leave their cushy investment jobs and venture into the world of high stakes investing. James Dondero and his partner have accomplished what they planned to do back in 1992. Highland Capital Management has more than $19 billion in assets under management, and the company is on the verge of increasing that number thanks to a recent investment in Argentina’s debt.

Highland Capital Management has offices in New York, Seoul, Singapore and Sao Paulo. The Dallas headquarters serves as the home base, and the more than 100 employees around the world keep the company operating like a well-oiled machine. Jim Dondero made the announcement that Terry Jones, the former Goldman Sachs portfolio manager, and Former CEO and founder of Battersby Capital, will become president of Highland Capital’s Industrial Products Division. Jones is a graduate of Columbia University and a former Genworth Insurance Company board member.

Mr. Jones is familiar with risk asset management, and he also is an expert in working with clients that need help identifying the opportunities as well as the risks involved in today’s investment market. Terry will be responsible for expanding the company’s sales platform, and he will also work with clients that want to increase their investment portfolio. That’s a challenge for any hedge fund manager in the market today. Hedge funds are not producing the returns that attracted investors to hedge funds seven years ago.

James Dondero is well aware of the challenges facing hedge funds. The economic situation in Europe and the potential collapse of the European Union isn’t helping hedge funds produce the yields that investors demand. The Chinese financial debacle is another concern for Dondero and Highland Capital Management. The consensus is, China is in a recession and it is only getting worse. According to an article posted by PRNewswire.com, Jim Dondero thinks the United States is dangerously close to a recession. Mr. Dondero also said Terry Jones will help Highland Capital navigate through the rough economic times thanks to his experience and his ability to work with clients that need help investing when the market starts to change.

Operation Smile was founded in 1982 by Bill and Kathy Magee. At first, their organization was just in the Philippines, but over the years, their network has spread and they have funded over 220,000 medical operations, so far. Operation Smile is an international medical charity providing free surgical procedures for children. They also have services for young adults with cleft palates or cleft lips.

Now, Operation Smile works with thousands of volunteers from 80 nations. The charity builds long-term sufficiency through training local medical professionals and working with hospitals, governments, and other organizations to provide patient care in their own cultural and language and to create various surgical care models. The goal is to find the most effective solutions which will reach as many people as possible. Specific missions may require importing equipment or medical expertise, depending upon the on-site resources.

Recently, a GoFundMe campaign was launched by Avi Weisfogel. “My passions and background led me to select Operation Smile as the beneficiary of the GoFundMe campaign, I’m running,” stated Avi, born and raised in Highland Park, New Jersey. He is a practicing dentist, who graduated from New York University College of Dentistry in 1997 and, later, a residency program at Robert Johnson Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ. He bought his first practice in Edison. Later, he bought two more offices in Old Bridge, NJ.

In New Jersey one is required to take 40 hours of continuing education every other year. Avi exceeds these requirements.
“I am a continuing education enthusiast; I want to know the best stuff that is out there in dentistry. If there is something that’s being done that can make life better for my patients, or make my job easier, I am going to learn it. Routinely I take about 200 hours of continuing education every single year and I do learn the latest stuff with the treatments and the procedures I do,” Avi proclaimed.

On top of starting the campaign, he donated $2,000, to get it started. “Operation smile believes that every child deserves exceptional surgical care and that all children deserve to be treated as if they were our own. The organization wants to ensure them, they will always have hope,” Avi Weisfogal‘s GoFundMe campaign description. Check out his educational YouTube Video below.
