George Soros: Breaking the Bad in Russia

 

 

The world has seen many successful business moguls. However, not many can pride themselves in breaking a bank like George Soros can.

 

George Soros was born in Budapest in Hungary. He fled Hungary has led to London, where his life changed. Soros has led a great life filled with various achievements. He is a human rights activist, an investment banker, an author and a philanthropist. Among his works and achievements, Soros has talked and condemned the asylum crisis going on across the European countries.

 

He then relocated to New York where his career flourished over three decades. He rose through the ranks at three prestigious global firms. Eventually, George gathered the courage to go into business alone. He established the Soros Fund, an investment bank that reaped enormous profits and benefited from his leadership and insightful input.

 

George Soros is a well-travelled man. He has business links with many firms and moguls across all continents. These relationships add value to his business and personal life. Mr. Soros came to appreciate the diversity of culture and ideology. He has since developed the concept of an open society that resonates with thinkers and humanitarians across the world. In his thesis, a free society arises from our cognizance of factors that make us different. We must embrace diversity and accommodate all our differences instead of applying a scattergun policy.

 

Soros remains vocal on various global issues. In his admission, the success he enjoyed in financial markets allows him the independence to venture into the social sector. The Open Societies have for decades made a huge difference in many parts of the world. For instance, they facilitated cultural exchange between the west and the east after the fall of communism. Also, numerous scholarship programs have been rolled out to promote literacy in poor communities around the world. During the apartheid in South Africa, Soros aided the oppressed blacks by paying legal fees to solve their detention and taking children to school.

 

The involvement of George and his networks in Russia has courted controversy and criticism in many occasions. The situation if further compounded by his criticism of Russia’s foreign policy that has led to a conflict with Ukraine. As a result, the Open Society Foundations were banned in Russia earlier last year.

 

Local authorities declared security risks emanating from the inferior democratic principles introduced by the foundations. A series of events have since taken place including the confiscation and destruction of library books donated by Soros to colleges in the Komi province.

Monitor Your Teen’s App Usage

Phones are a big deal. Teens like phones and they likely have one of their own. While there isn’t much that you can do about your teen having a phone, there are some things that you need to be aware of when looking at their apps. Apps on teen’s phones can be distracting at best and dangerous at worst.

Apps like Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr are all made for teens to be able to express themselves. They are social media sites and are essentially made for teens to be able to express what they are feeling about a situation. They are not meant to be private and most teens understand that these apps allow most people in the world to be able to see them. The major downside to these apps is that they are distracting and they can occasionally encourage bullying.

Texting apps and picture texting apps are generally made to be used for teens who might not want their texts to go through the regular venues. Many teens use these to ensure that they don’t have to give out their actual phone number. They may also use the apps if they do not want a parent to see what they are texting. Apps that can be used for these purposes include Kik and Snapchat, both which encourage teens to stay anonymous and may risk the teen engaging in sexting or other behaviours that are generally considered to be somewhat risky.

Dating apps are a big deal to teens and Skout is one of the most popular. As the original dating app, it has come a long way since it was first introduced. It allows teens to find other teens in their area and even people across the world. This is one positive and benefit of the app. Teens can choose to find people on the app who are close to home but they may also be searching for people who are far away in other countries. While this app is regarded as safe, it is still important to monitor your teen’s usage of the app.

Another benefit of using the Skout app is that it has an area that is specifically designed for teenagers. The chat rooms are made for teens and the teens can choose to find only people who are teenagers.
