Brad Reifler Knows the Game of Gains

 

 

Brad Reifler admits in his Huff Post article that it is a bold claim indeed to know how the plans of presidential candidates Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump may affect the economy. But with a refined inside perspective as a serial entrepreneur and a hedge fund manager, he takes a bird’s eye view of the options presented. His informed assessment and take away is fair and pleasant about the possible outcomes.

 

Both Clinton and Trump start with from a point of making the tax laws more simple and accessible to the average person. For the most part, the shape of Clinton’s tax plan affects those in America that are making a million or more. However those making less are set to see benefits in some of Clinton’s tax changes as well. She want expertise where capital gains taxes are calculated. In her new tax plan the amount of time capital gains are held factors into how they are to be taxed.

 

Trump, on the other hand, wants to compress the existing tax brackets and making a few basic tax groups. Trump also wants to put a limit on the number of deductions that both and double income families can make. Trump also wants to repeal some existing tax law that are designed to only help the upper class. Of the two candidates, Trump is the closest to actually revealing what he has in plan, by posting some information online.

 

Brad Reifler might have his eye very closely on the presidential election as the CEO of Forefront Capital Management. It’s kind of his job to know these types of things. He knows about them because thirteen years of being Founder and CEO of Pali Capital brings experience with it. He is very good about letting others know as well.

Premium Dog Foods Providing Human Like Food

Certified organic, no preservatives, and high quality ingredients are all terms that you are more likely to expect hearing about from your own food rather than your dog’s food. However, premium dog foods have been improving the quality of their offerings in the hopes of appealing to pet owners who are increasingly concerned with the well-being and health of their dogs. Man’s best friend indeed. The market for these foods has grown significantly in recent years. The overall pet food market is worth approximately $23.7 billion in annual sales. Pet owners are spending more on higher quality food items for their pets to a significant degree as the premium dog food market has increased by almost 45 percent to now command $10.5 billion of the total market. In the dog food industry, this has been commanding some high valuations and significant acquisitions. J.M. Smucker has acquired Big Heart Pet Brands for almost $6 billion and now has access to their jerky and treats that are made without additives and colorings, which is increasingly attractive to pet owners who are looking for more natural alternatives. Nestle’s Purina line, which owns powerhouse Beneful, bought Merrick Pet Care who is an organic producer of dog food and one of the leaders in organic dog foods. Nestle appears poised to add Merrick Pet Care’s strong organic products to Beneful’s already high quality and near dominant array of products. Beneful isn’t stopping there and is now offering a website that allows dog owners to offer personalized dog food blends using special small batch nutrition. This allows dog owners to create a diet that is right for their dog without having to adhere to the sizes and ingredients that fit other dogs. Imagine from your own perspective being forced to eat a sized meal with nutritional quantities that fit other sized people. Beneful is looking to change this and offer more specialty foods that are just right for your pet. Consider their Bright Minds food that has medium-chain triglycerides included in it that are specially designed for older dogs who have problems processing foods. These food items are more closely emulating human foods and with good reason; people are increasingly concerned with their pets and treat them just like part of their family.

I’m Wearing A Red Prom Dress. Which Makeup Should I Wear?

Here are tips on wearing makeup with a red prom dress. For those wearing red dresses with orange undertones, coral colored makeup complements them well, especially for women with darker skin tones. Red lipstick still works with most red dresses but consider a rose shade to offer a contrast to your red dress. If you’re wearing a deep red dress, black eyeliner goes well with it. The smokey eye look can also be worn with your red dress. If your dress is burgundy, light colored makeup keeps you from looking too punk rock-like at your prom.

Makeup To Complement Pink Prom Dresses

If you’re wearing a bright pink dress, it’s best not to rock a lot of bold pinks in addition to the dress or you’ll look like Barbie. Instead choose makeup with beige, taupe or slight gold undertones so that the focus will be on the way you look in the pink dress. Neutral colored eyeshadow also works for bright pink dresses. Also look for makeup that is based on your skin tone so you’ll have a blended yet not too matching style to the dress. If you’re wearing a deep pink dress, go for bolder and even darker shades. Those with brown or gray eyes can get away with blue or lilac eyeshadow with a deep pink dress.

Don’t Forget Basic Skincare

Before you put on the makeup, you need basic skincare applied to the face. Start by washing your face with a high quality facial cleanser and then apply facial moisturizer to it. Let your face dry before putting on the makeup. If acne is a problem for you, use a strong anti-acne cream in place of regular moisturizer and never pop the pimples since this makes acne worse. Use some natural skincare remedies such as olive oil, mashed bananas, honey, lemon and aloe vera gel for the face since they contain vitamins that improve your skin. With these steps, you will look fabulous on prom night.

When you consider that the outcry against gold has been ongoing for some time, savvy investors are slowly purchasing their stake while gold is down.

It is at the time when selling slows and the bear market kicks in will people begin to see huge gains in the gold market from their earlier purchasing plays.

Experts believe that over the next two quarters gold will rally significantly because of a drop off in bearishness. When it is all said and done, many believe that gold will sell for $1100-$1300 per ounce in the market.

Moreover, Jared’s exemplary performance in the University and his remarkable career went in line with his great desire in sharing a piece of his mind with people looking for employment especially in the field of investment banking.

Jared shares his insight by explaining the essence of composing an appealing resume whenever people are applying for a job. He starts by asserting that devoting a resume to an actual career achievement is the most prudent decision that one can make in their lives. This is because of the fact that, it is much more essential to highlight your prospective significance to any potential employers, and one can do this by displaying whatever they have achieved to the those employers.

An excellent resume is supposed to have half of its content dwelling on work experience that has relevance particularly if one is seeking a high profile position. This is due to the fact that it is quite important to have a well narrated and illustrated working experience when searching for big jobs. Wide experience in certain jobs is the key aspect that is sought after whenever one is looking for employment opportunity that has a handsome remuneration, provides endless opportunities and the deserved job security.

These helps in supporting your candidacy for the employment position on offer.

Boraie Development Sees Potential In Upgrading New Brunswick

Just a few short years ago, the New Jersey real estate market was on the verge of imploding. Now, there are many reasons to believe its on the cusp of a comeback. A stagnant economy, high taxes and the aftermath of back-to-back hurricanes, put a huge load in the upwards of $30 million on the citizens of New Jersey. 

In a surprising turn of events, the federal government is cooperating with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to get potential homeowners affordable down payments. Many real estate agents are finding more work than they can handle, as their phones are ringing non-stop. Other factors are contributing to more people looking for housing including real-time apps and smart technology for agents who can streamline the entire process. 

New Jersey real estate mogul Omar Boraie, owner of Boraie Development LLC., is a visionary who sees the potential of building more housing. His latest project is a high-rise luxury apartment called the Aspire. This residential unit was built in an effort to breath new life into New Brunswick, which has been deteriorating for some time.

The 73-year-old builder recounts how bad the area was several decades ago. “The area had many dilapidated units and abandoned houses,” says Boraie. While many criticized Boraie in his attempts to upgrade the area, he saw it as an opportunity to do some good. Boraie has also built two plaza towers over the years that have both commercial and residential renters. “The are is beautiful now and should bring more wealth back to town,” says Boraie. 

Although the New Jersey Shore isn’t quite back to its pre-hurricane condition, the areas are slowly getting back to its original state. As the devastated areas continue to get upgrades, more and more people will take advantage of the new and improved middle-class housing.

Alexei Beltyukov: An Angel Willing to Help

Alexei Beltyukov started to study medicine, but then decided to pursue business and received his MBA at INSEAD Business School. A true entrepreneur, he has launched several successful businesses including A-Ventures, New Gas Technologies and Mechanicus. He has led projects in transportation including a venture in rail car leasing, known as Brunswick Rail. Two years ago (2013), he formed Endemic Capital in Russia as a resource to provide angel investing for Russian start-up companies.

AN ANGEL INVESTOR

As an angel investor, Beltyukov not only provides financial backing and capital needed to begin a business, but may provide advice and guidance as well. Angel investors are usually family or friends, not just uninterested lenders. They see the personal value and purpose behind the business and they want to see it succeed. It may be money to jumpstart a business, or it can be ongoing support to help the company get through a tough spot.
Investing his own money, Alexi Beltyukov also provides counsel where needed to the company. Angel investments can be high-risk, so he looks for a great team and a good market. The outcome is always desired profit and productivity, but Beltyukov mostly wants to see the business succeed.

A HUMANITARIAN WHO LOVES TO HELP PEOPLE

Beltyukov is a committed humanitarian. Several organizations, such as A-Ventures Ltd and Skolkovo Foundation, have been formed to help other Russians looking to start businesses, or attend business school. A-Ventures Ltd was founded to help Russian businesses with underperforming assets.

PHILANTHROPIC GUIDANCE

As Vice President of the Skolkovo Foundation, Beltyukov helps provide economic guidance and support through grants for startups and entrepreneurs who want to expand their prospects throughout Russia. He also helped establish an alumni scholarship from his alma mater, INSEAD University, which provides support to students accepted into the University. The long-term goal is to see recipients return to Russia or the Ukraine and be successful there. So far, seven have done just that.

NEW VENTURES

Beltyukov is an “angel” in more than one way. Seeking to help students and teachers alike, he introduced SOLVY in the San Francisco Bay area this past April. SOLVY is an online homework space for high school students which allows teachers to create and administer customized homework assignments. Launchingnext.com listed it as “One of the World’s Most Promising Startups.” Beltyukov hopes to make it a household term in math education.

Joseph Bismark: Marriage of Spirituality and Business

One thing that is common in business is mergers. Many companies merge together due to either a partnership or one company buying out the other company. In many cases, one company policy dominates the other. It is not as common for concepts to merge together. One such merger of concepts that has occurred is spirituality and business marketing, according to an article I read on the WordPress blog under the name of We Don’t Love These Hogues. This merger has occurred thanks to Joseph Bismark. For many people, this merger is quite surprising and strange. However, when one reads more about Joseph Bismark as I did, he will understand how that came about.

Joseph Bismark has merged these two concepts together in order to bring out a dynamic way of running business. He has also shown some of the non-believers that business and spirituality can be merged successfully. This has brought forth a level of success that many people did not figure was possible. Joseph Bismark has achieved this successful run of business due to his assertiveness and diligence in marketing. As a result, he has won the approval of many people globally. He has also inspired many people who have dealt with him and have read about him.

His success can be traced back to when he was nine. He has spent almost ten years in the mountains as a monk where he learned some of the most valuable lessons about life. He has learned the value of mindfulness, humility and spirituality. He has spent a lot of time in meditation until he has reached enlightenment. He has also discovered his true purpose which is to help others realize their true potential and purpose. He has also figured out a way to generate income with this pursuit. He started several businesses with the purpose of bringing out the best in every aspect of others lives.
