The U.S. Money Reserve for Collectors and Investors

The U.S. Money Reserve with its headquarters in Austin, Texas is a large distributor of U.S. Government issued silver, gold and platinum coins in the United States and around the world. Your text to link… Philip Diehl heads the operation with a tenacious dedication to customer service and satisfaction; traits Diehl learned while he was the 35th Director of the U.S. Mint. Diehl is a man whose insights have been proven successful by the implementation of various programs while at the U.S. Mint and as CEO and president of The U.S. Money Reserve. He is the man responsible for the very successful 50 States Quarters program according to goldnews and the introduction of the Sacagawea Dollar coin while he was in charge of the U.S. Mint.

U.S. Money Reserve appeals to two different factions, there are the coin collectors, numismatists, who enjoy having, holding, admiring and sharing individual coins and complete collections with friends and family. The other larger faction are those investors who wish to have silver and gold as a hedge against a possible economic crisis. In this worse case scenario, if our government is toppled there would be no true value to the American monetary system; our greenbacks wouldn’t be worth the paper they are printed on. But gold, which had been a standard for world economies before the dollar replaced it, would have value and would become the only tradeable currency in this catastrophic scenario. Investors who hedge their bets by buying gold, also, realize that the price of gold may continue to spiral upwards, further increasing the value of their gold items.
There is a new issue which the U.S. Money Reserve has been advertising on the PR Newswire website, it is a 75th Anniversary Commemorative of Pearl Harbor. The obverse (back) side of the coin shows two planes circling overhead as the harbor and an American Ships is being attacked. The face side of the coin shows a middle-aged representation of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, with the face value of one dollar (for the silver coin). The country of origin is Tuvalu, located in the South Pacific, it is an independent island nation within the British Commonwealth. Its 9 small islands are sparsely populated atolls and reefs with palm-fringed beaches and WWII sites. The currency in Tuvalu is the Australian Dollar and the Tuvalu Dollar, which is valued at par with the Australian Dollar and both represent roughly 74 percent of the value of the U.S. Dollar.

Breaking the Rules Is Second Nature for Doe Deere

Some people might tell you that every rule that one encounters in life must be followed to the letter while others will tell you that rules only exist to be broken. It seems like there are rules for everything. Even when the rules are not hard and fast laws or some other type of written regulation, there is still an entire culture that is filled with rules that people are expected to follow or face the consequences. These rules even exist when it comes to fashion, beauty and other issues that really should be personal decisions. It is a real shame that the majority of the public is not capable of allowing people to express themselves the way they choose to as opposed to expecting them to follow some set of unwritten rules they are somehow supposed to be familiar with, often without the help of anyone to guide them through the process or explain to them why these rules are so important in the first place.

Over the years, there have been a few brave souls who attempted to do their own thing. Unfortunately, many of them have been met with a great deal of criticism and some of them have even been singled out, largely so they could be picked on by everyone else. When it comes to the rules of fashion, some people practically pass out if a person wears white pants at the wrong time of the year or chooses to wear a jacket that is made with a plaid pattern while wearing striped pants. The truth is, there are relatively few individuals that have had both the courage to buck these trends and the success that may or may not come with doing so. However, there are a select number of individuals that seem to specialize in not only thinking outside the box when it comes to matters of beauty, but leading others down the same path as well. One such individual that has been very successful at doing both of these things is Doe Deere, the creator of Lime Crime.

In order to understand the importance of her accomplishments, it is important to understand a little about who she is. She is an individual that never understood why beauty and fashion had to have all of these rules, not to mention why everyone was expected to follow them whether they chose to or not. Because of her personal feelings, she made a decision early on that she was not going to follow any of these rules unless she wanted to. As a result, she created unique looks with her fashion choices and then expanded those ideas into creating an entirely new line of makeup that became synonymous with enjoying the process of being an individual.

Eventually, she made the decision to create her company, Lime Crime, so that others could also enjoy the same level of freedom that she had. She knew that there had to be a fairly large number of individuals out there that were tired of following these ridiculous rules of fashion and wanted something better. For the most part, she also knew that people really needed a role model to look up to and she served that purpose very well. Today, Doe Deere continues to be a role model for those who want to express their individuality through their fashion choices. That is what makes her such a unique individual.

Spreading the Good Word

Bob Reina has played a rather large role in my life the past the year. Bob is the creator of the video communication software called Talk Fusion, which is the same software I use to contact my husband overseas. If it wasn’t for Bob Reina, there would be a good chance that I would still be fighting with other software’s just to get a clear picture of my husband on the screen.

With Talk Fusion I can hear his voice clear as day and see his face as if he was standing directly in front of me. At first I was not willing to pay for video communication, but after trying numerous free software’s, I went right back to Talk Fusion. It is absolutely worth every single penny spent. I would honestly spend way more than they charge just to use their services because of how reliable they are.

Bob Reina definitely hit the hot spot with this program and how well it works for me and thousands of other users. After I signed up to talk with my husband, I got five others in the family to sign up for Talk Fusion so that they could talk to husband as well. I have yet to hear one single complaint from any of them on how the program works. Every time I talk to them they just mention how great it is to see his face and talk to him while he is over there. Him being in Iraq is very nerve wrecking for the entire family.

Every time he is shipped out, we all sit on the edge of our seats until the day he is sent home. Talk Fusion lessens the stress of him being so far away, but it does not take away the longing for his touch. The day I am able to wrap my arms around him is the day that I will stop feeling so sad and lonely. I really do give everyone credit who has gone through this before. I just wish I could spread the word of Talk Fusion to all of them so they could share the same experience as me.

George Soros Provides Economic Leadership

 

George Soros has built his entire fortune on the skill of understanding the economic challenges that face an economy and properly predicting the reaction to that and how it will come into reality. He has built a self worth in the billions so when he starts to look at a particular area of the world and see an issue with their financial situation, intelligent investors will stand and take notice.

China has become a significant country in world economic markets over the past 15 years and that means that more and more the economy of China becomes tied to that of the rest of the world. When the Chinese currency starts to lose its value the world will take notice. George Soros sees the economic problems that are appearing in China and starts to think of 2008. When the economic problems in one area spread across the world and the crisis became quite a bit bigger.

The problems of China are fundamental as their economy moves from a base of investment and manufacturing toward one of consumption and services. The falling value of the Chinese yuan all combine to create an economic horizon that is difficult to predict at best and that is frightening to potential investors in all areas. They need to see the light of optimism in order to encourage economic growth in all areas. This is the crisis that Soros is identifying and comparing to 2008. Just being aware of the potential crisis can be enough for people to avoid them.

Soros has not only contributed to the economic wellness of the world, he also has been a major factor in developing the ideas of freedom. It began in 1979 as he developed a special scholarship opportunity for black South Africans being discriminated against by the apartheid government. He then put his focus on Europe and established European Universities that are designed to teach critical thinking skills. That has led to the development of a network of partners, foundations, and projects in more than 100 countries called Open Societies. They are devoted to protect the rights of all people and holding governments accountable for their decisions.

Even though there is a major concern economically in Asia, Following the leadership of George Soros and his keen economic advice will allow the world to avoid the economic catastrophe that occurred in 2008. There simply needs to be a lack of panic and some sound financial choices. With every challenge comes the opportunity for growth and that is definitely true in economic matters. The most important thing is to avoid panic and rash actions because those are the ones that are going to push a small crisis in Asia into a worldwide calamity.

What It Takes To Become A Plastic Surgeon In Texas

It is a long and grueling process to become a plastic surgeon in Texas. It takes commitment, determination and a strong desire to succeed. There are hundreds of doctors to choose from, and the majority of them are men. However, there are female cosmetic surgeons who have included this hectic schedule in their own busy lives and attained their career goal. Only ten percent of all the plastic surgeons in the United States are female compared to 90 percent of cosmetic surgery patients being women.

The cost of schooling to receive a degree in this field can get into the thousands. The requirements to become a plastic surgeon include obtaining a Bachelor’s degree from a four year college and a Doctor of Osteopathy or Doctor of Medicine degree. Post graduate training in a five year residency program is also needed as well as three years of specific plastic surgery training. Once all of this is achieved, the applicant must be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery by passing the oral and written exams.

Dr. Jennifer Walden is one female plastic surgeon who has achieved all these requirements and more. Born and raised in Austin, Texas, she graduated from Anderson High School then attended the University of Texas and earned her Bachelor of Arts degree. She achieved her Medical Doctorate from the Medical Branch of the same university then completed an externship with Plastic Surgery Associates in Miami. From there she did a fellowship with Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital in New York. Needless to say, she passed the certification exams with flying colors. She remained in New York for eight years until she returned to her roots in Austin, Texas in 2011. There she established the Walden Cosmetic Surgery Center.

Dr. Jennifer Walden and her all-female staff meet and exceed the expectations of women searching for cosmetic procedures. Their facility provides numerous services targeting the face, breast, skin and other areas of the body. The latest procedures and equipment are used to make patients look and feel younger and more alive. Although most of her patients are female, she also has male patients who rely on her expertise in the field.

George Soros Energy

 
Headline: http://www.thestreet.com/story/13465588/1/week-ahead-in-energy-does-george-soros-know-something-we-don-t.html “Soros Fund Management in the last quarter dumped all of its shares in Chevron (CVX), Chesapeake Energy (CHK) and NTG Energy.”

The oil market has been is a state of chaos with the price dropping from $110 per barrel in mid summer 2014 to below $30 per barrel. This is a drop of 73%. According to Goldman Sachs the energy sector makes up 1/3 of S & P Capital Expenditures and 25% R & D. spending.

Last week we saw a glimmer of hope when Saudi Arabia and Russia agreed to cap output at current levels. However, Iran refused to go along with the deal. Iran produces 1/5 of world supplies.

There is speculation on The Street about what motivated Soros to sell his oil shares. We may never know the details of his decision. We can, however, get a sense of his style of trading.

Early on in his career he made an in depth study of the markets. His concepts are discussed in his 1988 text entitled “The Alchemy of Finance.” He started by analyzing the traditional system of the day called Fundamental Analysis. This is an analysis of such documents as Balance Sheets, Price Earnings Ratios etc.
George Soros found this approach to be flawed. It did not account for random events such as weather disasters or miners’ strikes that caused instant disruption in the markets. He then analyzed Technical Analysis. This is where you buy or sell a stock based on a series of indicators such as Moving Averages, Relative Strength or Stochastic. He found this also to be flawed, citing the collapse of Long Term Management. Two Nobel Prize Winners founded LTM. They developed a formula to price options. However, they nearly went bankrupt when they suddenly got caught on the wrong side of their trades when Russia defaulted on their bonds.

Soros noted that traders act in herds following one another. He identified which way the herd was headed (up or down) and jumped on board. Yet his instincts told him that any trend does not last forever. He looked to signs of a change in direction and took positions opposite the herd. This is where he made a good deal of his profits. http://www.investopedia.com/university/greatest/georgesoros.asp

Soros is quoted as saying: “I rely a great deal on animal instincts.” He says when his back hurts its time to get out of a trade. When his mouth waters he follows the trend.

In the 1980s Soros retired from active trading and spent his time and energy on philanthropic endeavors. He has written several books, many essays and has spoken out as a critic on world affairs. He is a macro thinker. He looks at the big picture. Perhaps he sees something on the world energy markets that prompted him to sell his oil shares.

The Blessing and Curse of Social Media

Social media really is a blessing and a curse. It is able to provide all sorts of benefits and give individuals the ability to interact with others around the world. However, it can also be a curse as one wrong post can cause all sorts of problems. That is exactly what Melissa Click discovered as she lost her job at the University of Missouri after one encounter online. It is also just one other reason why the team at Status Labs wants people to understand why it is important to think twice about not only posting anything online but when acting out in front of other people, as they may post videos online.

Melissa Click worked as an assistant professional at the University of Missouri. During a student protest, she wanted security to “strong arm” the protesters and have them removed. She was vocal about it but didn’t cause any physical harm to the students. Despite this, her “strong arm” comment was recorded by a student, who then posted the video online. Once heads of the university heard about this they fired her on the spot. Now, Melissa Click is stating it is not right to fire someone for making one, seemingly minor statement, in front of a camera that she did not expect to be posted online.

Whether people agree with her statements or not, Status Labs uses this as an important lesson for individuals to learn. They need to understand that anything and everything they might say can be posted online. It is why people who are in a public position need to remain extra cautious when they say just about anything online. As long as individuals take this into account and make sure to play it cautious and simply assume anything they say and do is going to be posted online, they will be better off.

Darius Fisher, the head and cofounder of Status Labs, wants to do everything he can to help both employers and employees to understand exactly what they should be doing about their online reputation and how they can avoid negative content from affecting their lives and other personal attributes.
