Most credit card holders with debt pay nearly to 20 to 30 percent per year in interest rate. It is highly impossible to get risk free return on investment that is anywhere close to this interest rate.

Every month of you remaining in debt is the time moving in the opposite direction in terms of savings and reaching your financial goals. Debt elimination is one of the most important ways to start creating wealth.

It is important to strike a balance so that you can meet most crucial financial obligations through this way. CCMP Capital experts will show you how to do this and what you need to achieve your goals.

Politifact confirms George Soros has not donated to Kasich campaign

Campaign ads running during the Wisconsin primary accuse billionaire George Soros of backing the campaign of Republican John Kasich, former governor of Ohio, according to the Politifact website. Although the campaign has received donations from two people connected to the Democratic billionaire, Soros has not donated to the Kasich campaign directly on opensocietyfoundations.org. The political fact checking website rated the claim as false earlier this week.

With only three candidates left in the Republican primaries, the campaign attack ads on http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1997/02/the-capitalist-threat/376773/ have become more focused and more vicious. The candidates have not chosen to attack the party’s frontrunner. Instead, they are attempting to persuade the former Ohio governor to drop out of the race.

Representatives from the Donald Trump and Ted Cruz campaigns have asked Kasich to pull out of the race because he is taking away votes that could be going to either candidate. Some conspiracy theorists believe the former Ohio governor is remaining in the race in the hopes of causing a contested Republican convention.

Radio talk show hosts have accused the Republican establishment of wanting neither Trump sides believe that this year has seen a political rebellion against party establishment candidates. Trump leads the Republican side on Bloomberg, but pundits are still guessing about the outcome of the Democratic primaries. Clinton has the most delegates at the moment, but later races have gone to Sanders.

Both George Soros on politico and the Kasich campaign issued statements denying any connection between Soros and Kasich. Conservative media routinely criticizes Soros, and former Fox News Host Glenn Beck refers to him as “the spooky dude.”

Although George Soros donated to the Hillary Clinton campaign, he has not donated to any candidate since 2004. He donated heavily to the John Kerry campaign to prevent the re-election of former president George W. Bush. He is the founder Moveon.org, and he provides financial backing to the Media Matters website.

The 2008 Meltdown Is Over But Another One Is Coming According To George Soros

 

It was less than 10 years ago, but the remnants of the 2008 recession are still present is certain parts of the United States. That recession was the deepest, and the most all-encompassing meltdown since the 1920s and 1930s Great Depression. When the U.S. stock market crashed in 2008, investors licked their wounds and healing those wounds was a slow and painful challenge.

The S&P 500 index has risen by more than 92 percent since then. That increased seemed to be the new norm until the second half of 2015 sounded a wake-up call. The S&P index dipped by 9 percent at the beginning of 2016 and it has recovered, but George Soros says the recovery won’t last long.

George Soros is the guy other investors want to be. Soros is a billionaire 27 times over, and he made all that money investing. His hedge fund has returned 20 percent, year after year. Soros is known for his humanitarian efforts as well as for his investment prowess. Soros recently told Bollomberg.com that the economy of the United States may look like it will continue to grow in 2016, but it is going to hit a wall, and it may not get up for a while.

Even though recent unemployment figures show that almost all employable American are working that could change in the months ahead. One of reasons for Soros dismal outlook for the U.S. economy is the fact that most of the economic growth was fueled by government bailouts, huge injections of capital disguised as quantitative easing, and loose monetary policies. The expansion, according to Mr. Soros can’t continue because of central bank support and cheap money. The basic fundamentals of the economy must catch up with the stimulus that will create real economic growth. The real economy is covered in mirrors, according to Bloomberg, and those mirrors are going to break under the pressure of the current global issues.

Those issues are easy to see. The European Union is drowning in its own narcissistic behavior. The migration crisis coupled with the EU’s weak economic performance and the euro debacle has caused a major riff in the Union, and some members think it is not repairable. If the EU collapses, Europe will be thrown into a deep recession.

When the Chinese economic fiasco is added to the EU debacle, the result will likely be a global recession, according to Soros. Soros told Bloomberg.com that China’s economy is not going to grow by 6.5 percent in 2016. Soros believes the growth might be 3.5 percent at best. China has already put Asian and South American countries into the recession mode, and the next target is the rest of the world, according to Mr. Soros.

All Things Public with Darius Fisher

Darius Fisher is the president of Status Labs, a firm that focuses on online reputation management, public relations and digital marketing. The firm is well-known for the damage control of one’s online crisis situations. Darius is a mastermind with high profile clients as well as your everyday person. He is known as the Olivia Pope of the online marketing world. Not only does he specialize in fixing what is broken, he also helps business owners rank on the first page of Google to maximize their bottom line, and assists individuals – who may be entering the workforce – create a positive image for potential employers.

Being that Darius Fisher has previously worked as a consultant to political figures, and having a firm that handles public relations, his advice is one to adhere to when it comes to reducing turnovers by increasing employee satisfaction in the workplace. Darius has laid out a few solutions to tackle this matter, in order to cut down the cost of turnover rates.

First, it is important to have a goal for employees to work toward. If you incentivize people in the workplace, you make for a more production-driven and healthily competitive atmosphere. People just don’t want to show up for work, but they want to be rewarded for it too. You must know what makes them happy, in order for the incentivizing to be effective. Give them a free vacation, spa package or dinner and a movie.

Next, don’t overlook your employees. Workers appreciate being praised for their accomplishments. Acknowledging them in front of the team or even through a simple email blast will bring their confidence up to a new level. There’s nothing better than going to a job where you feel like you’re more than a worker bee. Positive acclamation will take your company a long way.

Lastly, it is very important to have consideration for your staff. Though some may not express it often, they really do want to know what changes occur within the company. The way to cut down the number of disgruntled employees is to keep them in-the-know when it comes to new hire potentials, new developments, hot topics and highlights, and new services that the company may be offering. This can be done by holding meetings every week or every month. One may also consider starting a company newsletter to take care of these same topics.

Brenda Wardle and Woke Twitter analysis of Racist Online Statements

Racism is one of the biggest challenges that have been facing South Africa. With a large number of the white settlers still living as citizens of the country, the problem seems far from being sorted. The issue of whites terming blacks as an inferior race in the country remains a stumbling block to a free and equal South Africa as envisaged by Nelson Mandela.

One incident that has since attracted public uproar is that of Penny Sparrow, a real estate agent in South Africa. Through her social channels, she referred to the black race of South Africa as monkeys. When people learned of the statement, a public outrage followed, both from online and beyond. She lost her job since the statement was greatly publicized and greatly criticized.

A twitter community, Woke Twitter criticized Sparrows statement after they caught the racist rant she posted online. According to Woke, the idea of racism is a thing of the past and only occurring in exception is false. Racism is real and exists largely. Woke recognizes and tries to respond to racism existence, in a way that will promote consciousness as well as social action. Its representatives do their best to expose racist comments that are posted on social channels like twitter and face book. Woke fights for transformation of South Africa to a racism free country, and says that very drastic action should be taken against those who will stand in the way of this transformation.

Sparrows’ rants also caught the attention of a legal analyst in South Africa, Brenda Wardle. According to Wardle, every person has the right to free speech. But the right should not infringe on other people’s humanity and dignity.

Brenda Wardle has been known for her passion in legal analysis. She loves interpreting the relationship between law and people’s daily life. Wardle holds three law degrees: in Criminal Justice, a Bachelor of Laws and Masters of Laws Degree in forensic medicine. She is also an author and has written a book called ‘To Kill a Fragile Rose.’ The book is an analysis of the state trial against Carl Pistorious. Her analysis on several matters including the Pistorious issue never falls far from truth.
