George Soros’ Plan for Solving the Refugee Crisis

In his latest opinion piece for MarketWatch, philanthropist and business magnate George Soros comments on the refugee crisis wracking Europe. Soros criticizes the lack of a unified plan asylum policy in the European union, and states it is one of the main reasons that the once-manageable refugee problem transformed into an international incident.
“Each member state has selfishly focused on its own interests,” remarks Forbes billionaire George Soros, “…this precipitated panic among asylum seekers, the general public and the authorities responsible for law and order.”

Soros urges readers to remember that protecting the Syrian people should be the first priority of all nations, and that all other considerations should be secondary to humanitarian concerns. At the same time, we mustn’t forget the many other displaced peoples and asylum-seekers from other nations abroad.

The answer, according to Bloomberg, is maintaining potential asylum-seekers in designated areas close to their current countries. Ideally, this would allow Europe to absorb any prospective refugees at a more controllable rate, which would remove much of the strain from the process.

George Soros believes the best way to help these refugees adapt to life in Europe is to provide subsidy for settlers in the form of 15,000 Euros annually for the first two years in order to cover health, education, and housing. The European Union member states should also accept one million refugees per year at the very least, and the duty of caring for the refugees must be distributed fairly among member states of the European Union.

Since countries like Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey have already taken the lion’s share of refugees, Soros argues that Europe must step up to the plate to support the four million plus refugees currently living in those countries. European countries should provide enough aid to ensure that the basic medical needs of refugees are cared for. The systems of these volunteer countries are under incredible strain, and financial aid is most certainly needed to avoid exacerbating an already catastrophic humanitarian crisis.

George Soros also advocates for a singular agency handling asylum and migration in the European Union, along with an international EU Border Guard. He also believes safe paths of travel should be organized between Syria and destination countries in order to reduce the widespread panic.

Soros believes the secret to successfully integrating these millions of asylum-seekers is to swiftly mobilize the private sector, encouraging churches, businesses, and non-governmental organizations to take an active part in solving this international incident.

As one of the most well-known philanthropists in the modern world, Soros has remained a sound defender for the cause of freedom, helping the Soviet states peacefully transition into modern democratic systems in the latter half of the 20th century.

Dr. Sergio Cortes Says Zika Virus Blindsided Scientists

Despite initially being touted as a harmless disease, Dr. Sergio Cortes, Brazilian medical expert says the Zika virus can cause severe health issues. Formerly reported on R7 Noticias, the Zika virus was primarily ignored which made it difficult to establish the severity of the virus. With over 1.5 million cases in Brazil, and several thousand elsewhere, Dr. Cortes warns about the risks. A study performed by a team at John Hopkins hospital and Florida State University have discovered that the Zika virus is capable of infecting the neural stem cells, which lower skull formation and damage intellectual development. As Dr. Sergio Cortes has reported, traces of the Zika virus in fetal brain tissue has confirmed the link between microcephaly and Zika.
The Mysterious Virus

Dr. Cortes says on Noticias, “We were really blindsided by this outbreak of the Zika virus,” and “the virus had its sights on Africa and Asia and then went rogue, spreading into South America.” Transmitted by the bite of a mosquito, Zika closely resembles the chikungunya and dengue virus, but the Zika virus has pretty much remained a mysterious infection for decades. Even chikungunya was pretty much unknown, up until a little more than a decade ago. Symptoms are similar among all three viruses, yet with Zika, symptoms appear and disappear before the person knows they’re infected. “The good news is that Zika is not fatal. In most people, the disease is milder than chikungunya and dengue,” says Dr. Cortes.

What Are The Signs of Acute Zika Infection?

Around four out of five infections appear asymptomatic. In other cases, the persons concerned have rather mild discomfort. Three to twelve days after being bitten by the Aedes mosquito they feel feverish, headaches, joint pain, sometimes conjunctivitis. It is also characterized by a nodular-patchy rash and itching. The symptoms normally disappear after a maximum of one week

Discovered in 1947, Zika sporadically reared its head in Africa and Asia. For half a century the virus kept quiet, until it raged in the Pacific islands. Last May it reached Brazil, and a little later Colombia, and by early 2016, the virus had infected more than 30 countries. Unfortunately, scientists are just beginning to pay close attention.

To date, no cure has been found, but according to Dr. Cortes, the Butantan Institute in Sao Paulo has been working on an antiviral antidote, and hopes the National Health Surveillance Agency approves the drug later this month.

My Full WEN Experiment On My Own Hair


Ever desired a more ravishing head of hair? Of course, you have. Everyone wants their hair to look it’s best. My hair is becoming very thin. I began to notice the hair in the shower every time I washed it. I was up to trying anything to thicken my hair up and give it more life. I heard about a product called WEN by Chas. After watching Chas Dean wash and style some ladies hair on television, I ran out to buy me a bottle to give it a try. I made a pact to try it for one week to see if I could notice any differences. Below is my full account of my week of trial.

Day one I woke up and jumped in the shower. I began reading the bottle of Wen for directions. The directions for use of the bottle leads me to use a lot more product. I was curious until I remembered that I was using only one product, not the 3 I usually used. I washed my hair with the product and dried it with the blow dryer. Yes, my hair had the bounce and silkiness that I was promised. 

Day two I woke to extremely oily hair. I think the oiliness means I am giving my hair something that it needs. I rewash my hair with the WEN and went out for the day. Day three gives me the same results. Each day I wake, my hair is oily. Each day I have to rewash my hair. WEN by Chas promises me thick hair and it is delivering. 

WEN is a wonderful product that gives your hair the shine and silkiness you desire. The hair will have more strength and endurance. The product offers a healthier approach to hair care without having to purchase on Guthy-Renker several more products. Check out for yourself my account of WEN on

Premium Dog Food Sales See Big Increase In Sales


Sales of premium dog food sales are seeing a big increase and major dog food manufacturing companies are taking notice. The sales of specialty, all natural and premium dog foods are rising at a rapid pace and reveal a trend that is growing among pet owners. There has been a shift to eating more healthy food with less preservatives and artificial ingredients for people. It seems that the same healthy trend is growing among pet owners.

With sales steadily increasing year after year and projections forecasting more growth ahead, companies like Purina, Mars and other specialty brands are churning out new products in order to get a piece of the rapidly growing market segment. Premium dog food brand Freshpet is marketing its latest batch of newly developed dog food that they claim will taste just like your favorite Thanksgiving dinner. Fresh ingredients, no preservatives and excellent taste are the hallmarks of Freshpet’s premium dog food sales strategy.

There is no question, that there is a large amount of pet food companies offering an assortment of premium dog foods nowadays. A premium dog food that stands out to me is Beneful made by Purinastore. The reason that Beneful brand dog food stands out is due to quality and pricing. If you have lots of dogs you know how important an affordable dog food is to your bottom line.

With Beneful by Purina you get the best of both worlds. It is priced very reasonably and affordable for the average dog owner, even if you have many dogs like myself.
