Can Venezuela Ever Draw In Foreign Investment Again?

The local news courtesy of Atodomomento is filled with salacious reports about the impending collapse of Venezuela’s economy. The one and only silver lining to this catastrophe is the country would be able to rebuild in a manner that avoids many of the mistakes done previously.
The rebuilding process, however, is hardly going to occur in an expedient amount of time. A lot of money has to come into the country in order to reverse the effects of the long-lasting horrific economic depression.

In order for the economy to rebuild itself, foreign investment is crucial. A serious question is going to be asked among many corporations throughout the world. Is it safe to invest in Venezuela asks expert Danilo Diaz Granados? Considering the disaster that has befallen the country, many investors are probably going to be more confident taking their money elsewhere.

Currently, Coca-Cola has had to shut down a large part of its operations in Venezuela. Revenues immediately slowed due to a sugar shortage. Coca-Cola can still sell Diet Coke, but no company wants to deal with such outrageous, money-losing volatility. Trying to get foreign dollars into Venezuela is going to take a long time. The country needs hard currency and investment capital now.

Regardless, foreign companies and governments have to think of their own well-being. It is no one’s primary concern to bring money into Venezuela solely to give the country’s economy a slight boost.

The Comical Plot to Sabotage Open Society Foundations

The bad news is that a group of far-right conservatives led by activist James O’Keefe recently attempted to infiltrate and sabotage Open Society Foundations, a charity founded by liberal billionaire George Soros. The good news is that they didn’t get very far in their plot. As a Rawstory article details on http://www.rawstory.com/2016/05/busted-conservative-prankster-james-okeefe-exposes-his-own-sting-on-george-soros-group/, Open Society Foundations officials discovered O’Keefe’s scheme for a simple reason – he forgot to hang up the phone after calling the foundation.

O’Keefe called up Open Society Foundations and used a fake name while asking for more information about the group and its mission. Then, not realizing every word he said could be heard on the other end of the phone on http://www.georgesoros.com/philanthropy/, he stayed on the line as he discussed his strategy for messing up the foundation with his fellow conservative extremists. Essentially, their plan was to gain as much information as possible about Open Society Foundations through pretending to be sympathetic with its charitable cause and then to use what they had learned to somehow hurt it.

In the course of the conversation, which was taped by Open Society Foundations, the conservatives revealed their almost total ignorance of how the Internet works and how a modern organization conducts business online. At the end of the day, while they may have had malicious intentions, the would-be saboteurs came across pretty much like harmless clowns. The New Yorker Magazine was the first major media outlet to break the comical story.

About George Soros

George Soros was born in Hungary and, in his childhood, escaped his native country after it came under Nazi rule. He was later educated in London, then became a highly successful hedge fund manager and ultimately moved to the United States. After amassing an enormous fortune, he retired from finance to focus on philanthropy and writing.

George Soros is generally on the liberal side of the spectrum in his political views and has given considerable amounts of money to progressive politicians and causes. He has written extensively on a number of contemporary issues, and he is a highly regarded expert and a much sought-after speaker on a number of topics including finance, the developing world, and immigration.

About Open Society Foundations

George Soros is the leader of Open Society Foundations, a vast group of organizations in many countries that share the broad goal of creating a world where all people enjoy freedom and opportunity. Soros has a long history of activism that goes back to the 1970s when he worked to end Apartheid in South Africa. Open Society Foundations has been highly effective in its continued efforts to improve the world through activism of many types on behalf of the underprivileged and downtrodden.

SKOUT Celebrates National Superhero Day by Creating Real-life Superheroes

 

In case you weren’t aware of it, National Superhero Day was April 28th, and SKOUT created a way for all of their users to be Superheros for a day. Christian Wiklund, co-founder, and CEO of SKOUT, developed a way for his Scouters to have an entire day where they could send virtual gifts to their friends, and SKOUT would support this by donating each time to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

The chain reaction was set off by the members’ taking a moment to think of their friends and letting them know. All of the profits would be sent to the Make-a-Wish Foundation in San Francisco reported the PR Newswire.

Mr. Wiklund is overjoyed with this way to use his app for good like any dynamic superhero would. During a survey by SKOUT, the members who answered said that the main characteristic of a superhero was that they helped others. The users liked that idea, so they participated in SKOUTs virtual gift concept that allowed them to “act” like a superhero on National Superhero Day. Donating to the Wish Foundation was a fantastic idea.

Favorite Superheros

SKOUT also asked America who their favorite superhero was. The answer was divided between the sexes: women chose Batman and men chose Supermen.

Almost half of those who were surveyed chose the Batmobile as the coolest superhero ride. and coming in second, at 20 percent, was the Wonder Woman’s Invisible Plane.

Almost unanimously, the Scouters said that what makes a superhero super was that they helped people, and over 80 percent said that they would like a chance to be a real-life superhero. This was the inspiration that Mr. Wiklund needed to prepare the special program For National Superhero Day.

How the SKOUT Superhero Program Worked

The Superhero Program offered every member a chance to send a virtual gift, which is already a part of SKOUT, which would allow the member to meet new friends and enhance the ones they already had while helping the Make-a-Wish Foundation. SKOUT donated every time a virtual gift was sent, and Mr. Wiklund said they would continue until the fund was met.

This global app played with National Superhero Day while allowing people from all around the world to be a real-life superhero for a day.

To help contain the energy crisis and trying to prevent a total energy collapse, President Nicolas Maduro’s announced on television that he has now set a temporary two days’ work week for public office works and employees like Jose Manuel Gonzlez, a docotor, will see no changes in salary. However, school will be on a four days’ schedule with Friday offs.
For many Venezuelans this news was shocking. New Phase

Many of the public workers like Manuel Gonzalez that were granted time off from work said that they will use this time to stand in the long food lines. As a result of the energy crisis, it is not uncommon to see long food lines throughout Venezuela.
