Over the last few years, there have been dozens of initial coin offerings, also known as ICOs. While many of these have shown short-term explosions in value, a large number of them have subsequently collapsed, leaving investors who were unlucky enough to escape in time with nothing. In fact, the entire history of cryptocurrencies, starting with Bitcoin, has been one of stomach-wrenching volatility and fortunes being won and lost overnight. Within this backdrop, the rash of dozens of ICOs has added an increased element of Wild West wildcatting to an already extremely risk-soaked market.
But risk itself doesn’t make an entire industry inherently illegitimate, although there is an argument to be made that risk that is not widely understood by the investors can amount to ipso facto illegitimacy. Shervin Pishevar, one of the most renowned venture capitalists in America and an expert in the financing of high-tech ventures, has stated that the world of cryptocurrencies, while not fraudulent by its nature, is skirting the line between outright fraud and outsized risk. The problem, Shervin Pishevar says, is that, in many cases, that line is clearly being crossed.
Shervin Pishevar points out the most obvious example of this: Over 10 percent of all ICO proceeds have been flat-out stolen by hackers. In addition to that theft, billions of dollars in cryptocurrencies have been stolen from exchanges. In some cases, the people overseeing those exchanges have been implicated. Shervin Pishevar says this has cost crypto investors billions of dollars and is evidence of outright fraud.
But he points out that it is in the areas that are harder to discern where the real risk of being caught up in a bona fide fraud investigation becomes an issue for investors. Shervin Pishevar says that ICOs themselves are likely non-compliant with current SEC laws. He says that this is a major problem, in itself, for investors in those offerings. But he says that in ICOs where obvious fraud is coupled with major investor losses, the chances of SEC action is high. This, he says, is likely to lead to claw back of all investor profits.
To simply get straight to the matter at hand, Waiakea water is some of the purest water on the planet. This particular water derives from mother nature herself, and it goes through an extensive filtering process. The Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii is ground zero for receiving this special water. Rainfall in this particular area of the globe is generally at 360 days per year. That’s right! Rainwater that travels through the Mauna Loa volcano is manifested into Waiakea water. Did I mention that this water is vigorously cleansed? Well, Waiakea water shuttles through more than 14,000 feet of porous rock, and this rock exceptionally cleans this fluid very thoroughly.
The CEO and founder of Waiakea water is Ryan Emmons. Waiakea water has been around for only six years, but it has made a huge impact on society. The water is actually sustainably sourced by the company, and the company does a wonderful job of donating fresh water to its local community. In addition to that Waiakea is working with other companies to provide fresh water across the globe. This company is definitely giving back to society and water just so happens to be the key to life. Emmons grew up in California and Hawaii. At the location to where the water is actually sourced, his grandfather’s house is in very close proximity. Once he tasted the water for the first time, he knew that this was the best tasting water of all-time. Though that statement is just an opinion, many people have agreed to it.
Waiakea water is actually volcanic water because it travels through a mountain. The water absorbs some of the finest trace minerals that are known to man. Waiakea water is electrolyte-rich, and it has a very high alkaline state.
Robert Deignan is part of a small group of people that have achieved financial freedom and independence through the means of creating their own business venture. Robert is the CEO and co-founder of ATS Digital, a digital support company. The company helps its customers solve a variety of technical problems through the means of remote assistance. He was born in Fort Lauderdale and has attended Purdue University on a football scholarship.
Robert managed to play professional football. He played for the Miami Dolphins and the NY Jets in 1997 and 1998. His first business venture was the founding of Fanlink, Inc. The inspiration for ATS Digital came from one of his old jobs as a technician that helped people solve malware issues. Malware products were blocking the Anti-Malware products that Robert was using and so they decided to solve the issue by remotely connecting to the customer’s machine and remove the Malware that was blocking the Anti-Malware. Robert took the remote strategy and applied it to his own business venture. ATS Digital had great success through the implementation of this strategy.
According to Robert Deignan, the one strategy that has helped him grow his own business is the discernment of business partners. He warns to not just look for an investor that can provide money but to look for an investor that also has influence on other businesses that can help benefit your own. An entrepreneurial challenge that he has learned to overcome is the hiring of certain employees. If an employee does not fit in with the company culture, he has learned to let them go.
As a business owner and entrepreneur, Robert does not like to micromanage but prefers to let the people do their job. If he has to micromanage, then they are not a good fit for his company. His company is full of people with positive attitudes and people that actually want to make a difference. Robert has filled his company with hard workers that he knows will get the job done. He has learned that just because a person is qualified to work for him, it doesn’t mean that they are a good fit for the company culture.

There is an abandoned Toys “R” Us in nearly every community across the country. This iconic company finally fell after decades of being the most important toy store in America. The company collapsed under $5 billion in debt after 70 years. It simply could not make payments on the $400 million in yearly interest so it finally filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The company initially struggled to bear the weight of this financial burden to continue operating, but a federal judge ordered the toy company to liquidate assets. It seems that the Internet killed one of America’s largest companies.
Stansberry Research believes that the fall of Toys “R” Us is just the first of many giant corporate bankruptcies. The investment research company believes that the Internet has fundamentally changed the game for brick-and-mortar companies and that these massive companies lack the dexterity to change.
All of this information comes from Stansberry Research. If you are at all interested in the stock market or money-management then you should begin taking advice from them. They bundle all of this knowledge into highly entertaining articles that read like blogs. It’s like your best buddy is giving you money advice.
But the last one I read was pretty grim. One by one, Stansberry Research believes all of our beloved big box stores will simply crumble under the weight of the Internet. These companies will fall like dominoes to create a cascade of financial difficulties throughout our economy. Stansberry Research says that it could cause the next great economic downturn which will be much worse than the economic collapse of 2008.
The stock market is a place to invest in large companies. The largest companies command the most respect and eat up the majority of the market share. The collapse of a massive company sends a title wave throughout the market. Vultures descend to invest in the demise of massive companies which transfers a great amount of wealth to new hands.
It looks like the next economic downturn could be the biggest transfer of wealth in the short history of our complex stock market system.
Science and philosophy finally found common ground after discoveries from research. Philosophers always stated that altruism is the path to self-betterment. Giving is more rewarding than giving, but most people never put much thought into it. Jorge Moll conducted a study that confirmed the statement. He is a neuroscientist who studies methods of improving life.
Jorge studies the human brain through MRIs. His aim was identifying the effect of altruism to the bodies and brains of people. In particular, Moll and his colleagues were looking for visible and physical changes in the brain when people give. The investigators asked volunteers specific question about giving and observed the reaction in their brains.
The study revealed similarities in the brains of these volunteers. Their brains were rewarding them for their decisions of giving. The volunteers expressed signs of pleasure in their brains. This research should change the perception of people about giving. People feel giving is a burden, but in actual sense it offers gratification. Life is not just being on the receiving end. When we give it fulfills part of our cause in this life.
When other doctors were choosing different paths in life, Moll decided to help people through research. He believes people need knowledge and education to live a high-quality life. This knowledge can only be acquired through research. Apart from studying behaviorism, Jorge Moll is involved in inventing and developing technological solutions for improving healthcare. Patients deserve top quality services and treatment in the shortest time possible.
A degree in medicine and Ph.D. in experimental pathophysiology was the starter pack for Jorge Moll’s career. He established the D’Or Research Institute and began studying various topics. Moll has numerous ideas but finds it difficult to choose one. After careful analysis and discussion with other associates, they narrow down on one decision. Research work in neuroscience is vital to Moll. That is why he is also a director of different research institutes in neuroscience. His mission is to make life exciting and better for all people. Every day, people should have many options for enhancing their lives and enjoying it.

According to the letter by Eucatex president Flavio Maluf, the company and Duratex have entered into a partnership to carry on business together. The deal includes Duratex acquiring Eucatex’s farm Capão Bonito, while Eucataex will in exchange gain from the acquisition of a production line of wood fiber sheets in Botucatu. Eucatex will not leave the Capão Bonito farm wholly as they will stay for production of raw materials but have entered into the deal since it is near to a Duratex unit in Itapetinga. This is part of the Duratex resumption of production in the area which became official in April. Read more about Flavio Maluf at Wikipedia.
The Botucatu production plant has 280 workers with an annual production of approximately two hundred thousand cubic meters per year. The deal is awaiting CADE approval. Once finalized, Eucatex production will increase by 40% for paper printing, 70% for fibrewood, and 30% for paint capacity. The company is seeking to strengthen its local and international business, and this is some of the initial efforts. According to Flavio Maluf, the acquisition will place the company in a better place to manage and plan its sales, maintenance, and reduce process losses.
Flavio Maluf follows in the theories of David Pinto, the founder of the School of Entrepreneurship Longitude, saying that business missions are difficult unlike what is expected, but people have to be firm. He says that individuals should aim to always be focused. Losing focus can lead to accumulation of work delaying delivery time of tasks, this invokes panic, despair, and unprofessionalism. He advises his workers to set timely goals for example, weekly, monthly, or daily and try to follow the plan as much as possible.
Moreover, Flavio Maluf discourages coffee and snacks breaks as they tend to encourage unnecessary conversations that take time and draw employees’ attention from work. He says such breaks though not prohibited should be short to avoid the temptation on random conversations.
Additionally, one should be open to new methodologies as a way of keeping productivity ongoing by coming up with new ways of handling tasks. Research on current and developed methods in productivity help to reach maximum work rate and incomes.

Before he became famous across the country Ryan Seacrest had a local radio show in Los Angeles, California. It was this show that led to him being chosen as the host of American Idol in 2002. He has since gone on to have a great number of jobs all going on at the same time. He hosts many events, has a production studio, has a radio and tv show, has made a movie appearance in “Knocked Up” playing himself, and he released a line of formal wear for men among other things.
Ryan Seacrest says that his impatience serves him in keeping up with all of this activity. He says he gets things done quickly and then moves right on to the next thing. He says his day is very efficient, such as his never having a lunch meeting. He doesn’t like to waste his time traveling to a restaurant. Instead, he eats where he is which either comes out of a plastic container or he eats a shake if he feels like he looks too heavy that week.
His clothing line is called Ryan Seacrest Distinction. He says that for years he had Burberry’s Christopher Bailey crafting his suits. He decided to start his own line of men’s formal wear which Bailey helped him out on. Ryan Seacrest partnered with the retail chain Macy’s to sell this clothing.
“On Air With Ryan Seacrest” started in February 2004. This radio shows broadcasts lives and people around the world listen to it. It is on from 6 am to 10 am Pacific Time each weekday. He covers news and entertainment on this show along with a couple of co-hosts who are Sisanie and Tanya Rad. These are assembled into podcasts with some of the latest ones being “Is Venmo Dating a Thing?” and “A Listener Had A Good Idea For Our Baby Bet” (his co-host Sisanie is pregnant). He taped this show in a studio in Burbank just outside of Los Angeles for several years. Now that he has moved to New York City he now uses a radio studio located in Manhattan.
