Funding Autism Research through Music Concerts

Autism is a brain disorder that delays the developmental milestones of a child. The number of people affected by the disease increases yearly since science is yet to discover a cure for the condition. For instance, one in every one hundred people in the UK is affected by Autism.

Sanjay Shah Denmark is the CEO and Founder of Autism Rocks, a charity foundation that raises funds to financially support research organizations that are interested in improving the management of autism. Besides funding research, the foundation also holds music concerts to increase autism awareness. With more people aware of the condition, they are expected to change their perceptions towards the people affected by autism.

The donations have already boosted the medical understanding of the causes of autism. Researchers have already established a set of guidelines helping people with the management of autism. The research centers have also established that autism affects different parts of the brain and that girls living with autism may have needs that are different from boys living with autism.

The music concerts usually feature popular music artists like Flo Rida, Tyga, Michael Buble, Prince, Lenny Kravitz, and Drake. They are invited since they have the power to influence people on various issues. Besides music, the concert incorporates fun activities like horse rides and face painting.

Funds raised in the concert are directed to support autism research. To date, Autism Rocks has succeeded in donating close to £600,000. Sanjay’s philanthropic efforts have seen him being honored to be named one of Autism Research Center’s trustees.

The idea to incorporate music concerts and fundraising was arrived at after a meeting between Sanjay Shah and world’s top rapper, Snoop Dog. Sanjay Shah learned that famous artists usually attract immense admiration from the public and people are often eager to attend their shows. For this reason, he contacted Done Events Promotions Company with propositions of how they could be organizing charity-themed events featuring music icons.

Sanjay Shah is a passionate entrepreneur and business person who laid aside his academic qualifications as a doctor to start up his first investment venture, Solo Capital. The company offers financial services on brokerage and investment management. It is a profitable company that employs more than 100 business experts.

Reifler Offers His Best Investing Advice

The investing world is highly complicated if you are unsure about what you are doing. It is easy to feel overwhelmed and quickly get into trouble if you do not know what you are doing. Luckily, those of us who are not as adapt at investing can rely on those who actually know what they are talking about.

Brad Reifler is the CEO and founder of Forefront Capital. This is an investing firm that he established as a way of providing more people with the ability to get invested and start to see the types of returns that they long for. He has been in business for more than 30 years and therefore knows what he is doing when it comes to business.

YahooFinance writes about how Brad cares about helping the average person get invested in the markets because he knows from personal experience how some are left out of the rain when it comes to investing. The step-father of Brad Reifler was restricted from getting involved with certain types of investments simply because he was not an accredited investor. Brad Reifler wanted to change that, and that is what motivated him to create Forefront Capital.

He also encourages people to not put all of their money with any one money manager. No matter how well one thinks they know someone, it is all too easy for that person to take advantage of that trust and manipulate it. Bernie Madoff is just one example of this.

Secondly, you should understand what it is you hope to gain from your investments in the first place. This means that you must have a precise strategy for what you want to get out of the markets. You cannot just throw money in with the hope that it will increase in value. You should be certain about what kind of return you are hoping to get.

Consider all of this and work towards your own investment growth by following the advice of Brad Reifler and others who know what they are talking about.

Venezuelans Want To Defeat Hunger Crime Inflation And Corruption According To Agricultural Entrepreneur José Manuel González

José Manuel González, the Venezuelan agricultural entrepreneur, and former President of Fedecamaras in Caracas is on a mission to change the direction of the country. González is currently the Deputy to the National Assembly of the state of Guárico. Mr. González has been trying to turn the country around through a national agreement, but President Nicolas Maduro wants to do things his way. His way is to bring the people of Venezuela to their knees through food deprivation, land and business seizures, electricity shortages and high inflation. The country with the richest oil reserves in the world has no money, and all fingers are pointing to President Maduro as the source of this economic disaster. Venezuelans are living their worst nightmare, and they want it to stop, according to González.

One of the largest recall rallies in the history of Venezuela is underway. Millions of people filled the streets with signs that said, “We are going to bring down Maduro,” and “This government will fail.” Those messages and more like them popped up in cities across the country. The opposition Democratic coalition expected one million people to join the rally in Caracas, but according to the reports the total was much higher than that.

Maduro is calling the rally “a violent, fascist ambush,” Maduro ‘s henchmen have been rounding up activists for days, according to González. Maduro is telling his supporters that his quick response has stopped the rally from becoming violent. Maduro will do anything to stay in power, and that includes using tear gas on the protestors. Maduro used extra police to block the streets of Caracas, and there were roadblocks on most major routes into the capital from the surrounding provinces.

Jose Manuel González has been trying to find a political solution, but Maduro believes the rally is backed by the United States. No one is sure what will happen next in Venezuela, but according to some reports, the outside world is not going to get a realistic version because Maduro has expelled all the foreign reporters. Maduro was hand-picked by Hugo Chavez, but he has destroyed everything Chavez accomplished.

Three Cheers For Freedom Fighter Thor Halvorssen!

There are several despotic governments in this world that falsely claim to be socialist democracies. Thor Halvorssen calls these countries out directly, on their hypocrisy and level of oppression they levy against their own citizens. He says people in America correctly condemn the vicious, self-serving, tyrannical governments of Venezuela, North Korea, and some countries of Africa. However, he thinks they are mostly ignorant if Americans think all democratic socialism has proved evil. The countries that most Americans believe are socialist in structure cannot seem to see past that simple facade to the despot and his cronies pulling the levers behind the scenes. Those are not socialist governments at all, it turns out in the final analysis.

While he agrees that those countries must be reformed. They deny people there the most basic of human rights. While on a trip to South Korea, in the central city of Seoul, for a world conference on human rights, Halvorssen made clear his passionate stand for the oppressed peoples of the world. He was calling people all over the world during his days at the conference. Of course, many of those receiving these calls and texts in Europe and all of the Western Hemisphere were still in bed.

Thor Halvorssen is a tireless freedom fighter, in the fight that can actually change minds, in the press, television media, and with peaceful demonstrations. He points people to the freedom loving, but certainly socialist democratic countries of Northern Europe as examples of healthy governments. He has been trying hard and with valor to bring the kind of sane, representational, socialist democracy that is found in Sweden to his native Venezuela.

Halvorssen’s family is no stranger to the effects of a despotic, terrorizing central government. After a coupe, decades ago, the new Venezuelan government arrested, imprisoned, and tortured Thor’s father. It took a great deal of world wide humanitarian effort to secure his release. Later his mother was shot by a government goon squad while she was attending a peaceful meeting in public. She recovered, but of the 11 people shot, one did die.

Securus Technologies Shames Unethical Telecom Company

Securus Technologies is based in Dallas, Texas, and provides technology solutions for civil and criminal justice and public safety systems in the area.  Recently, Securus Technologies announced that it would be releasing a series of articles highlighting ethical wrongs committed by Global Tel Link (a.k.a. “GTL”), a telecommunications company in the industry that has long been a provider of telephone service to prison inmates. Securus hopes to shame GTL into adopting higher standards and more ethical business practices, and I have to say that it is about time.

The first article released by Securus highlights a 1998 report from the Louisiana Public Service Commission (LPSC), in which the LPSC finds that GTL was guilty of fraudulently altering telephone clocks to add extra seconds to calls, charging higher rates than the law permitted, and double-billing for calls, among other things. Securus acknowledges that these transgressions were committed 18 years ago, but makes the salient point that the Enron and Bernie Madoff scandals are also dated, and the passage of time has done nothing to reduce the seriousness of those matters. Today, no one would do business with Enron or Madoff.

That experience has allowed me to realize that inmates cannot be lumped into a category, labeled, and then left behind. Many inmates are good people who have made bad decisions. The families and friends who visit them and call them are their lifeline, and for a company defraud one of society’s most vulnerable populations by taking advantage of that lifeline is inexcusable. I am glad that Securus is taking steps to shine the light on GTL’s business practices. If you’d like more information on Securus Technologies, you can find it here and here.
