Cool Recap of BMG CEO

Vice president and long time leader of one of Brazil’s largest and most influential financial institutions, Marico Alaor, recently discussed the events that took place at one of Las Vegas’ most anticipated tech events, the Consumer Electronics Show.

George Soros Donated Close To $500,000 To Major GOP Presidential Candidate

To the surprise of many, John Kasich, the current Governor of Ohio, is still in the Republican race. New Day For America, the name of Kasich’s PAC, recently received a donation that has both liberals and conservatives scratching their heads.
According to an article published on The Political Insider, Scott Bessent and Stanley Druckenmiller, the fund managers for George Soros, donated just under $500,000 to a soft money fund for Governor Kasich.

The reason this donation is so interesting is because George Soros has also recently donated $8 million to a super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton. He is also the same guy who has spent billions both creating and funding organizations that tend to be on the far left when it comes to politics.

George Soros is not the type of man who will keep quite when he has something to say. He made it very clear he does not agree with Cruz or Trump on the topic of border security. While both Presidential candidates believe more border security is the best solution, Soros couldn’t disagree more.

He was quoted on bloomberg.com as saying, “We must reaffirm our commitment to the principles of open society and resist the siren song of the likes of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, however hard that may be.”

Based on the donation, it is clear Governor Kasich has captured the attention of the billionaire investor. The question however is why? And unfortunately, no one can answer that question.

Who Is George Soros?

George Soros is now a Forbes billionaire who was born in Budapest in 1930. In 1947, at the age of 17, he fled his hometown and heading for England. Once there he enrolled in the London School of Economics where he would later earn his first degree.

After graduating he made his way to the United States where he would eventually become the billionaire he is today.

Since 1979 Soros has been one of the most active philanthropists in the world. He started by donating funds to young Africans who wanted to attend Cape Town University in apartheid South Africa.

Open Society Foundations, Soros’ philanthropic organization, is now operating in over 100 different countries. The goal of the organization is to promote human rights, transparency, and most importantly, an open society.

Besides being one of the most successful financiers in the world, George Soros is also the author of several dozen books including The Crash of 2008 and What It Means, and The Tragedy of the European Union which was released in 2014.

Learn how to dicpher between dengue fever and the zika virus with the help of Sergio Cortes

 
An article that is found on the R7 noticias website has revealed that recently it was discovered that, in addition to dengue fever, the Aedes Aegypti mosquito also has been responsible for the transmission of two other types of viruses: the zika and chikungunya. According to experts, the symptoms of the three diseases are very similar to each other, being among them: high fever, body aches, eyes, muscles and red spots on the skin, said Dr. Sergio Cortes.

With the emergence of these new viruses caused by the same mosquito, is very important to point out a few ways to differentiate each disease. The symptoms that stand out on dengue in relation to other illnesses are muscle pains and behind the eyes. Dr. Sergio Cortes says that still to clarify about the similarities between the symptoms of zika virus and chikungunya, the nurse Bruno Del War, representative of the epidemiological surveillance of Itapetininga (Sao Paulo), some signs as prevalent according to each disease. In the zika virus which predominates is the itching in the Cup and the redness in the eyes. Chikungunya in the joint pains are fairly intense.

Although associated with the current rate of microcephaly in newborns, these data are still being studied, making it difficult to establish the level of gravity of zika virus. The representative said that, on the other hand, in the case of dengue fever is already known of the possible consequences of the haemorrhagic disease, recalls Dr. Sergio Cortes. In addition, War still emphasizes the importance of seeking medical assistance in case of emergence of symptoms that may characterize some of these diseases. According to the nurse, Dr. Sergio Cortes, studies are underway to see if it is possible for an individual to host more than one virus at the same time.

It is known that there are no antiviral or any type of medicine to solve or prevent the disease. Sergio Cortes mentions that, according to the expert, the treatment for these diseases is in the process of studies. For now, the treatment must be done with oral rehydration serum base, or if necessary intravenously in health units. Hydration must be accompanied by complete rest for at least five days to restore physical strength. About four years ago, the Butantan Institute, in São Paulo, works in an attempt to create an effective antidote to combat the diseases. In the second stage of the research, the Institute is waiting for the medicine pass to the third stage and is manufactured on an industrial scale, says Sergio Cortes. Scientists have the hope that medicine is approved later this month by the national health surveillance agency (Anvisa) to begin the last stage of the research.

Relying on the monitoring of researchers, approximately 17 1000 volunteers will receive the first doses of the new medicine. For the experts, says Sergio Cortes, the vaccine developed will feature 80% efficiency and can fight the four types of dengue fever. However, there is still no date for the start of the last stage of the studies. According to Anvisa the release request is being reviewed. While there is no solution to these problems, there’s only the prevention and elimination of possible outbreaks of mosquito reproduction transmitter of disease, professionals in the field.

Dr. Sergio Cortes has made many contributions to the entertainment and medicine world. Many have enjoyed his impersonation of Michael Jackson while the medical community and his patients have benefited from his medical practice and research.

The European Union Lacks Democratic Legitimacy According To George Soros

The European Union’s mood of self-assurance is grossly misplaced, according to hedge fund investor George Soros. Mr. Soros expressed his thoughts about the health of the EU during an interview with a German Magazine recently. Mr. Soros told the Bloomberg interviewer that the EU was on a disaster course. The EU leaders have botched several issues lately, and the consequences of their dismissive attitudes is catching up with them. The European Union is in serious trouble, and the leaders are complacent enough to let the trouble continue, according to Soros.

When Soros posted the German magazine interview on his website, many American were shocked to learn how much trouble the EU was in. Most Americans know very little about the internal workings of the EU. The facts they do know are simple ones. Americans know they can travel through Western Europe without showing a passport or a visa, and they can use the euro instead of individual currencies on their trip. But most Americans don’t keep track of the EU’s economic performance or how decisions are made. It’s safe to say Americans don’t know who leads the EU, and according to Soros, the EU members question their own leadership. That is one of the main issues. There are too many leaders that have their own agenda.

Americans don’t realize the EU, the edifice of federalism, is disintegrating by its spectacular failures and contradictions. George Soros said the initiators of the European Union promised to bring prosperity and peace to Europe, but instead of those two promises the EU has delivered debt, disintegration and despair to the people of Europe. It is clear that the EU has become a dysfunctional group that would rather protect individual interests than work for the good of all people in Europe.

Soros thinks the migration crisis has brought out all the flaws within the EU that have been hidden from the rest of the world. It’s obvious that the EU lacks any sort of democratic legitimacy and that signals that the end is near, according to Mr. Soros. One only has to look at apartheid regime in South Africa to realize how sudden and dramatic a collapse can be. The Soviet Union collapse is another example of a failure that was predicted but was ignored.

The migration crisis may well be the event that brings the European Union down. Mr. Soros said that a leader must come forward to resolve the issues between the EU members. If German Chancellor Angela Merkel can’t get the EU under control, and come up with an effective solution to the migration issue then all the other issues that the EU is dealing with will be exacerbated. All those issues may finally create the radical separation of EU members.
