NutriMost Taught Me to Cook, Too

I did want to lose weight when I saw the story on twitter about NutriMost, but I was not sure that it was going to do anything other than help me shed pounds. I was able to do that just like the people in the news story did, but I was not able to get my mind around how much I was going to learn from nutrimost.com. This is a really great thing for me because I am finally able to do a lot of things with confidence for the first time.
The first thing that I learned was how many calories are in all the foods that I eat. That alone was something that I needed to know, and now I am able to eat all these things knowing how much I am taking in. This made my life a lot easier, and it meant that I could go into the kitchen and get the results I wanted from all my meals. I am still losing weight even though I have learned how to cook, and I stick to the plan at Nutrimost to make sure that I am going to keep the weight off. I feel great in a bikini at the beach, and I like wearing that little black dress that makes me feel sexy.

NutriMost changed my life by teaching me what I needed to know about food so that I could eat in the right ways. I had the best time learning all about NutriMost, and I am still on the plan today. It helps me make sure that I am going to have the best time eating, and I am going to know what I am eating instead of just eating and gaining weight without thinking about it. I will always have a great figure because of NutriMost.

George Soros Explains the Theory Behind Open Societies

George Soros is known all over the world for his success as an investor and businessman. He is widely consulted for his advice on International markets and analyzing foreign currency trends. As the president of Soros Fund Management, George Soros is listed as the richest hedge fund manager in America. His ability to make a fortune off of investing in the right international market at the right time is unmatched by almost anyone. Educated at the London School of Economics, Soros has a claim as perhaps one of the most successful investors in history. Because of his incredible success in his profession, Soros has amassed an unimaginable fortune worth billions. He has the resources to contribute heavily to various liberal or progressive political campaigns and super PACs. In addition, Soros is the main contributor to countless educational programs all over the world. His involvement in philanthropy is in a league of its own. At the heart of Soros’ involvement in causes that defend human rights or protect the rights of immigrants in all corners of the world, is his belief that he should use his vast resources to actually make a lasting difference in the world. Soros recognizes that not everyone has the same access that he has to capital and influence, so he tries to make the most of it by funding initiatives that he thinks will serve the best interests of society in general and protect vulnerable segments of the population at the same time.

From this sense of international obligation, Soros established the Open Society Foundations, which now can be found in more than 100 countries around the world. This network of donors, organizations and private individuals works to promote the values of open society, which means freedom from government oppression and the types of political systems that work to only benefit the very few in power. These individuals tend to be the ones with the influence to control enough resources to get themselves in power and then manage to stay there. Soros thinks that there needs to be a real balance between principles of individual liberty, as promoted by true free market capitalism, and the common good of society overall, which he says that communism can take to an undesirable extreme. According to Soros, the free market is no the device by which to protect the rights of the few. Instead, there needs to be some checks and balances against the free market so that it does not trample on the rights of the most marginalized members of society. At the very heart of capitalism, the free market does not want to be restrained, according to Soros, so there has to be some sort of intervention from the government in order to make sure that the rights of the least represented population are protected.

Venezuela’s Economic Crisis Deepens as Largest Brewer Halts Production

Venezuela’s largest brewer of beer, and celebrity Norka Luque‘s favorite brand Empresas Polar, shut down last week. Empresas Polar was the largest private company in Venezuela and had produced nearly 80% of the nation’s beer. The company cited an inability to purchase barley because they lack the U.S. dollars needed to pay suppliers. A request to Venezuela president Nicolas Maduro for additional funding of U.S. dollars to help the company buy imported barley was rejected.
The Venezuela government strictly controls access to U.S. Dollars and Euros in the country. Without access to these currencies, the company doesn’t have a way to pay foreign suppliers for the raw materials needed to make beer.

The shuttering of Empresas Polar will cause a mass-shortage of beer in the country within the next few days added Luque, and will put roughly 10,000 people out of work. It is unclear how the Venezuelan government will respond, but in some action will be needed to ensure that the Venezuelan people have enough beer.

Grossly Substandard Care With Nurses Targeted By The Department Of Justice

There is a probability of many nurses who are operating nursing care forms on a lie are facing imprisonment in the near future.

The elder justice initiative will spearhead the act all over the United States considering the increased home care fraud to neglects of the nurse cares and home care facilities in addition to losing focus on such legal issues that matter greatly to old. The increased focus raised by the California’s Justice Department is meant to wipe out illegal nurses and nurse care homes out of the business in addition to ensuring proper service provision for the aged.

Under the derivative of elder justice initiative, most care homes for seniors will undergo thorough checkups and more attention raised on the whistles already blows. The nurses are now forced to review their long-term plans to improve their practices and ensuring compliance. Apparently poor facilities, understaffing and poor catheter are some of the factors that will make some of the senior home cares go out of business in addition to facing imprisonment. Also, this has come as a legal jurisdiction in America to ensure that home care facilities hire qualified nurses and take care of the seniors well enough just as in their homes. Already ten legal task forces were released in March for the whole of the nation.

Senior care homes are areas of legal jurisdiction regularly ignored but affecting a greater live of the majority in the society directly or indirectly.

Kyle Bass Is Undermining America’s Economy

Socialists the world over do underhanded ratty things for the purpose of undermining their enemies. It’s been their MO since Lenin in Russia. Stalin was literally a bank robber before he waltzed that mustache into a position pushing papers as a bureaucrat, and eventually managed to wheedle his way to the top. Kyle Bass is no different.

Kyle Bass started his career away from the public eye, but he very soon became centered in it. Bass used to work for Bear-Stearns; until 2008, one of the top five investment banks on Wall Street. Between the time Kyle Bass left Bear-Stearns, and the CSPAN interview that ended up collapsing the company so bad that J.P. Morgan Chase ended up absorbing them, Kyle Bass let loose some volatile information likely responsible for the bank’s demise. Bass told a journalist about a novation refused by Goldman-Sachs from Bear-Stearns. Novations are basically the transitive property of mathematics applied to legal or financial situations. “A” and “B” are the same thing. “B” and “C” are the same thing. So “A” and “C” are also the same thing. Mortgage-backed securities come from cash, which is then traded on Wall Street; so why not just trade with the securities themselves? This is basically a novation, and what all the big-ticket investment banks were doing before 2008’s meltdown. The thing is, the mortgage-backed securities were based on mortgages that had no real value, as those who had taken them out didn’t have the ability to pay them back. Still, the practice of novation was common, and not worth noting on the news. When Bass broke the story, though, it imploded Bear-Stearns.

Bass later predicted that the American economy would collapse due to the sub-prime lending market. After that he began using his human interest organization CAD, the Coalition for Affordable Drugs, to force pharmaceuticals into lowering their stock value via political pressure to drop drug prices. When their value plummets, Bass short-sells and makes a fortune.

To top it all off, Bass is involved with Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, socialist despot of Argentina, a woman so bad with money and leadership that she’s defaulted Argentina twice in only thirteen years. Yet Bass praises her every financial move. Why? Because he’s a socialist stooge posing as an economic assassin in America, and very successfully gutting the country of millions. But that’s what socialists do, essentially: they steal from banks.  There are more articles of what Bass has done on ZeroHedge.

President Of The US Money Reserve Wants The Penny To Be Dismissed

CNBC’s Squawk Box featured an interview with Philip Diehl who currently serves as the President of the US Money Reserve. The interview covered the demise of the penny, and Diehl is the perfect person to speak on the topic given his history. This article explains how Philip Diehl rails against the pro-penny lobby, and the video of his interview is below for your viewing reference.
#1: The Penny Is No Longer Necessary

Philip has noted many times that cash transactions represent just 25% of the money people spend affect the U.S. Reserve negetively. The cents are often taken care of by credit cards or debit cards, and a penny is no longer needed in large portion of sales. The penny could be phased out easily while retailers change their prices to meet the needs of an economy with no pennies.

#2: The Penny Is Too Expensive

The penny costs nearly twice its value to produce, and the Gold News Network is losing money every time a penny is pressed. Philip served as the director of the US Money Reserve, and he has seen money fly out the door with the pressing of every penny. Philip knows the only people who benefit from the penny are the blank makers, zinc suppliers and stamp makers.

#3: The Government Must Update Itself

Nearly every modern country in the world has made changes to its currency over the years to meet the needs of the public. The US government is holding on to the tradition of the penny that could be replaced with something equally-meaningful, but the pro-penny lobby is very strong. Any time the penny seems to be ready to die, someone comes up with a reason to keep it.

The writing has been on the wall for the penny for many decades. Philip served as the director of the US Mint long ago, but he remembers moves to eliminate the penny from production. The penny is still alive because people do not want to progress with the rest of society, and Philip wants the government to make the right decision for its budget and the majority of its population.
