New Technology Helps Make Weddings Easier

Wedding etiquette, unlike love, is an ever-evolving creature that never remains the same. Time honored traditions are being tweaked and prodded making for new and better ideas that produce the desired results in less time using less energy and money. Nowhere is that more obvious than in the lucrative wedding registry business.

Wedding Registries
Traditionally, a gift registry is a list of things couples would like to have and the names of stores where those gifts are available. It connects the giver and the receiver of wedding gifts anonymously while taking the guess work and leg work out of the shopping process.

The old way of using a gift registry often resulted in duplications or an over abundance of one gift and little or nothing of another. Many saw the old way as impersonal because it removed the joy of giving a gift purchased simply because it reminded you of the person you’re shopping for. New technology restores that joy by letting you expand gift ideas and the way they can be purchased.

Consider the technology of Slyce. Shopping for wedding gifts and anything else that catches your eye will be as easy as Snap, Find, Shop. Visual search technology allows you to shop anywhere, while out on a date, while at home watching television, or while thumbing through a magazine at the doctor’s office. You can use your phone to tag a picture of the item, match it with a retailer, then purchase it. This innovative shopping experience is already being tried at Neiman Marcus.

Wedding Attire
Nowhere is coordinating what you will wear more important than at a wedding. The blissful search for “the dress,” however can quickly morph into an arduous shopping assignment.

The average cost of a wedding gown is a little over $1,357.00. That’s an expensive purchase especially when the dress is usually worn only once. That time worn tradition is being challenged, not so much by technology as by an awareness that the money could be better spent elsewhere. Now entering into the wedding attire business are boutiques that rent wedding attire at a fraction of the cost of a new purchase.

The purchase of a wedding dress is a personal and sentimental buy,technology will soon enable brides to create and customize the dress of their dreams while at home playing around on the computer.

Skout Helping People Find Friends and Food

The tech world is an ever changing place and one area that is changing the fastest is the of social media applications. Companies like Twitter and Facebook have certainly staked their claims to social media but applications like Skout are trying to put their own spin on this sector of the consumer business world as well.

Skout is an application that is meant to not only allow you to communicate with your buddies, but also meet new friends. The application is also changing the way social media applications actual compete with one another, considering you can actually sign into the service using your Facebook account. Once a user is signed up, they will see a kind of grid layout which displays a user’s information as well as their recent posts.

From inside the application, users can wink at other people that show up on their board and then if the other user winks back, a chat can actually be started. While some people will look at this as a kind of way to find a date, it should be pointed out that the grid isn’t set up in a way to only show people of the opposite sex. Truly this is an application that might be able to find you a date, but is much more interested in finding you a friend.

Interestingly, the developers of the Skout application aren’t just trying to help find buddies. near the beginning of March, the application started trying to get its users to practice a more well developed sense of social justice. On March 14, Skout encouraged users to send virtual gifts of a bag of potato chips to their friends. When this virtual bag of chips is handed off to a friend inside the application, the developers of Skout will be making a cash donation to the Food Bank of San Francisco. These donations will be made until the company hits the goal of being able to serve 20,000 people through the food bank has been reached.

This shows that the developers of Skout understand the social contract that people have with their communities. It’s great to find yourself a new friend, but there are things that are more important than hanging out with someone when you have a little free time. Some people are worried about where they’ll get their next meal and Skout is looking to answer that question.

$588,375, the total amount a Major GOP Presidential Candidate took From George Soros

John Kasich and his PAC “new Day for America” received a significant donation which has raised major eyebrows among the conservatives as he continues to remain in the Republican race.

The Soros fund managers Stanley Druckenmiller and Scott Bessent donated a total of $488,375 to the governor in what they referred to as small money fund. This is according to the records which have been provided by the Federal Elections Commission.
George Soros, who had already spent billions of dollars in coming up and funding far left organizations such as ACORN, MoveOn.Org, and the countless pro-amnesty groups. After Forbes billionaire George Soros had already donated an incalculable amount of money to the Congressional Democrats, he went ahead to hand a pro-Hillary Clinton PAC a sum of $ 8 million.
Soros had recently revealed about his expanded efforts in trying to oppose more border security. “we must reaffirm our commitment to the open society principles and attempt to resist the siren song from the likes of Ted Cruz and Donald Trump,” Soros explained on Bloomberg.
Kasich, representing himself as a Republican primary reasonable voice caught the left’s top donor together with his allies interested.
Bessent has been Soros chief investment manager until late 2015 while Druckenmiller has been managing George Soros investment money at the hedge fund. It should be remembered that Druckenmiller was Soros top fund manager when Soros successfully broke the England bank by devaluing the British currency in a move that profited him a total of $1 billion. People are now expecting Kasich to portray a strong showing in the Buckeye state. However, Senator Marco Rubio’s campaign has forced his supports to back Kasich in a move which will try keeping Trump away from winning more delegates.

Securus App Improves Communication for Inmates

Video visitation is something that is becoming very popular in the correctional facility community. I have witnessed firsthand how this has become something that is making life less stressful for people that have loved wants that are incarcerated. Many people do not know just how much this can change someone’s life. There are droves of family members of incarcerated people that have never had the opportunity to bond with their mothers, fathers and siblings that are locked away. Securus has a new mobile app that has given a lot of people that opportunity to do this.

The video visitation app that this company has offered gives people an app that they can download quickly. They can fund their accounts and log in. From this point they can utilize the app to communicate with people that are imprisoned. The app is quite effective because it allows people that download it to keep up with the schedules for visitations.

Securus is getting a lot of recognition because this app has been downloaded over 65,000 times. It is available through Google Play and the iTunes Store, and it is gaining a lot of attention from people that are drained of the long prison visit routines. I have witnessed myself how this app has saved me a lot of time because I siblings that are confined in different states. I would never have the time to physically visit everyone that I knew that was incarcerated, but this app has allowed me to defy geographical boundaries. Even if the prison is not within my area I still will have the ability to communicate through the Securus mobile app.

I appreciate what Securus has done. I can use the Securus software on my desktop with my webcam but I was elated to find that this company had developed an app. I rarely used my computer, but I am always on my phone. The Securus mobile video visitation app just allows me to set up visits easier. I can do this during lunch when I am out in the park. I can connect and visit while I have other friends present. I think that it provides a lot of motivation for the inmates that get the chance to rent the tablets. They get the opportunity to feel connected to their families and friends again. This is an upgrade that is much better than traditional inmate phone calls and conversations.

Soros donates to court Latino votes

George Soros is getting involved in politics again. Soros, a billionaire financier who often supports liberal causes, George Soros has said he will donate $5 million towards a $15 million campaign to sway Latino voters into voting for the Democrats in November, according to a story in the New York Times.

Democrats plan to focus the effort on Florida, Colorado and Nevada, three states with significant Latino populations. Organizers believe there are enough Latino voters in those states to provide a victory in November. The campaign seeks to get those supporting Democrats to get out and vote, and to court swing voters who are not decided.

Republicans also have a campaign going to try to reach Latinos, spending $10 million that was given by the Koch Brothers.

Republicans may have a steeper climb though, as Republican front runner Donald Trump has insulted and angered Hispanics already and other candidates have also taken stands against Latinos. Trump was the most bombastic though, calling Latino immigrants rapists and thieves. He also called for a wall between Mexico and the United States, and he said he would make Mexico pay for construction.

Democrats may also have to mend some fences with Latinos, according to the article. Organizers in the Latino community are disappointed that President Obama has not been able to deliver a promised immigration overhaul, and he deported a lot of people. Organizers have also complained that Democrats have not funded campaigns well enough in the past, so the new money may help in that regard.

George Soros supported a major campaign to try to unseat President Bush in 2004, but has since supported less blatantly political campaigns. He has a foundation called Open Borders Society that promotes human rights as well as transparency. He has donated a total of $13 million in this election cycle.

He said the rhetoric of Republican candidates caused him to get concerned. In addition to Trump’s insulting of Hispanics, he has called for banning Muslims, which Soros has called offensive. Soros said such talk is against the national interest and a danger to democracy. Soros said there should be consequences to such hateful talk, and he hopes voters will provide those consequences this coming November presidential election. Learn more about his profile at

Soros is now one of the world’s most wealthy men and spends most of his time now running the Open Society Foundation. He grew up in Hungary, and his Jewish family was in hiding during Nazi occupation and during World War II. After the war, in 1947 he moved to England where he went to school at the London School of Economics. In the early 1950s he moved to America where he started his international finance company that also managed hedge funds.

Sanjay Shah and the Solo Capital Strategy for Long Term Wealth

While the world seems to be more and more chaotic all of the time with respect to business, economics, trade, and the financial markets, people know deep down that they cannot let their fear prevent them from planning for the future. The fact of the matter is there will always be both good and bad times ahead when you consider the markets. However, if you cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel then it becomes a lot more difficult to actually invest for your retirement. After all, who wants to willingly throw hard earned money after investments just so that they could wind up evaporating overnight?

The important thing about dealing with investments is that you need to find a professional who can help guide you around, through, or over the worst and the best of times. Making money is an importing part of investing and obviously everyone wants to save as well as generate additional wealth through their investments. However, even if you are able to understand the long term importance of investing early and investing often, just throwing money at the markets won’t necessarily yield the results that you want (and need).

When people think about what they can expect from the investing world, and then they compare that with what they would actually like to see from investments, the two aren’t necessarily correlated. One such icon that has started to turn heads and has become one of the fastest growing firms in the financial field simple due to the reputation. That financial beacon of hope is Sanjay Shah and the Solo Capital organization that he represents.

Sanjay Shah has created not only a lifestyle for himself, but a place for anyone who understands the importance of investing. Not everyone is of a mindset with numbers, interest rates and payments. That being said, even if it is not your priority, you also know just how important it will be to look deeply at your strategy and make sure that it makes sense for you. That’s where a financial professional comes in.

The importance of investments is dealing with global citizen, and when you think about the fact that you are only in the investments game to try and retire (which everyone does), then it can make so much sense why there is such a need for people who both understand the markets and also understand how to communicate well with others as well. By that logic, if you are planning on retiring then you can either try to specialize in financial investments and the markets in general, or you can choose to work with someone who truly does understand the markets on their own account, and who is also an excellent communicator.
