Thor Halvorssen, Political Pot-stirrer

At only 39 years of age, the vigorous and vociferously outspoken and opinionated Venezuelan, Thor Halvorssen has made quite a name for himself, both in America and all around the world. Mr. Halvorssen is primarily known for his political commentary on various news outlets and platforms such as Fox News, MSNBC, CNN and TED Talks as well as his creation of The Human Rights Foundation, a nonpartisan group which works internationally to protect free societies from tyrannical and despotic rule and draw attention to fundamental human rights violations.

Mr. Halvorssen has a great deal of personal reasons to be a detractor from politically extreme and authoritarian governments, for instance his great grandfather was a vehement detractor from the Nazis. In addition, Thor Halvorssen’s father, during a 1993 money laundering investigation, was arrested on very questionable charges, subsequently imprisoned, then beaten and tortured. Halvorssen’s mother, Hilda Mendoza, a vocal political activist, was shot by the regime of Hugo Chavez whilst attending a non-violent protest of the Venezuelan recall referendum – thankfully she was not fatally wounded and made a full recovery. Lastly, his cousin, a man by the name of Leopoldo Lopez, is currently serving time as a political prisoner in Venezuela.

Thor himself has not remained entirely unscathed in his battle against tyranny either. For instance, during a 2010 trip to the city of Ho Chi Minh for a interview with a local Buddhist leader whose church was being suppressed by the local government. Thor was able to covertly set up a interview but was eventually found out by the local police, beaten and detained until he could convince them he was a Buddhist seeking guidance.

Because of this visceral and very personal experience Thor Halvorssen believes that if you want to change the world you have to do more than simply complain about it online, one has to roll up their sleeves and get down in the muck. Finally, his stand against dictatorship extends across all political aisles, as he was a vociferous detractor of the ardently right-wing Augusto Pinochet every bit as much as he a detractor from the far left, Hugo Chavez. Because of Thor Halvorssen’s belief that what is truly important is not the particular ideology which breeds intolerance and tyranny but merely the emergence of intolerance and tyranny itself, he works tirelessly with both liberal and conservative individuals and organizations to spread awareness about myriad political problems facing freedom loving peoples the world over.

Trump’s Online and Offline Reputation is Spreading Beyond Borders

With a reputation of insults and a bombastic nature, Donald Trump’s arrival on the political scene has disrupted the political scale and has managed to confuse many. As Americans seem to vote in his favor, one must wonder why with his recent scandals and his constant insults.

Trump’s reputation as a business person was always a shady one, but there was no denying his sense of marketing and promotion. That is what has gotten him this far. Self-promotion has been his best friend and in doing so, he has garnered a group of followers but also a group of protestors.

Insults, half-truths, and lies are what Trump is known for and has been for years. He has yet to lay out actual plans of action. He would rather mention the topic without giving his audience the information. But in some circles, that seems enough to keep his numbers high and attendance to his speeches full.

The media jumps on the wagon every day. When Trump speaks, the news cycle repeats his words until they each is ingrained into the memories of Americans. Whether bullying Hilliary Clinton or making wild claims of deportation of Muslims, the media is right there to report it repeatedly. Not even an expert online reputation company can compete with that nonsense.

As Trump’s insults go beyond the borders of America, his reputation has suffered in other countries as well. From the Mexican President to Chinese leaders of commerce, the reputation of Trump is not kept within the borders of the United States. But the mixture of reviews keeps everyone at the edge of their seat to catch what he says next.

Athleisure in the Nightlife

Athleisure has become a hot fashion trend that people are embracing for their active life, casual days and even as work attire. Now athleisure is taking the next step out —while clad in a stylish athletic shoe- into being a part of the nightlife.

In an interview with the magazine for fashion and beauty minded people -Marie Claire- Kate Hudson details how her own line of active wear has began to branch into selling athleisure nightlife style.
Read the full interview on Kate Hudson Fabletics Interview 2016

Kate Hudson is affiliated with the popular Fabletics active wear company. Fabletics is a branch off from the JustFab fashion membership retail company. Likewise Fabletics has a membership option for their customers to get the best deals from them every month. They do however offer customers to shop as guests from the Fabletics webstore or brick and mortar locations.

The company just launched their first ever designed dresses on April 1 of this year. They have so far been earning praise from athleisure trendy ladies.

When asked why women like the idea of athleisure dresses Kate Hudson immediately identifies the reason to be a desire for comfort while still looking stylish. She says that all of the Fabletics dresses are made from the same material as the rest of the athletic wear from the company. The material allows ladies to stretch, bend, walk, and relax comfortably. It isn’t difficult to get in and out of a car with a Fabletics athleisure wear dress on. The dresses are form-fitting so spanx aren’t necessary to wear underneath them and a few of them have bras built in. This makes the dresses all the more comfortable.

Kate Hudson also mentioned to Marie Claire information about the other new products from Fabletics. They just released swim wear this year. The secure design of the swimsuits with cute, feminine designs make these swimsuits a match made in heaven for your summer if you don’t want your swimsuit accidentally falling off or slipping from your body.

Andy Wirth was instrumental in combining Squaw Valley with the adjacent ski facility, Alpine Meadows, into a combined mega-ski resort connected by a new gondola that allows skiers from Squaw Valley to ski the trails at Alpine Meadows and vice-versa. Along the way Wirth spearheaded an opposition drive to incorporate the ski area that would have taken control away from Wirth and the ski area itself.

Marc Sparks Advice For Entrepreneurs

If an individual went through a lot of struggles as they were progressing through their life, he or she will want to pass on wisdom to others going through similar trials. There is much that can be done to avert struggles.

A man who suffered embarrassment while dating or in some other context in high school may want his son to avoid that, so he will share his wisdom. In his about.me page, Marc Sparks has done something similar. Since he has gone through a lot throughout the course of his journey (as narrated in his book They Can’t Eat You), he actively labors to share his wisdom with people who are going through something similar. In this article Sparks shared a bit of his wisdom so that young entrepreneurs would be able to take steps toward success.

Focus

If we apply ourselves, we can accomplish anything. Marc Sparks believes that the key to success is internal rather than external. It is about focusing one’s mind and inclining oneself to achieve what he or she has always wanted to.

The reason that people fail is that they give in to a negative mental disposition, which informs them that they will fail and that they should quit. But Sparks believes that focus is the key to success and through that, one can accomplish anything.

Presentations

Communication is central to everything that we do. If you are going into a job interview, you need to be able to relay to the potential employer the reasons that you would be an ideal candidate.

Even if you do have strong skills in your industry, you will not succeed if you cannot communicate those skills to other people. An unskilled person can even convince a potential employer to hire them on the basis of their communication skills. A proper presentation can define success. Sparks believes that there are three ingredients to a good presentation. Read more: Marc Sparks – President @ Timber Creek Capital and Spark Tank DFW

A Real Story Theories will only get us so far. Rather than focusing on what might work, Sparks believes that it is important to focus on what has worked. That is what captivates an audience.

Good Images It can be easy to zone out during a presentation. People often have a very short attention span when reading a big blog of text or listening to somebody drone on for a long time. An well-constructed image will keep the attention of the audience.

Simplicity You have a lot of knowledge.

But technical jargon can be overbearing. Explain it in simple terms. Use The Team Everybody on your team has different skills. Bring them in to the presentation so that the audience can see what everybody is contributing.

Fabletics will now offer swimwear

Originally announced on Elite Daily:

Fabletics made public that they will be offering a swimwear line. The swimwear line will make a debut on April 12 and it will be available in sizes XXS to XXL. Fabletics is also expanding their clothing line with summer dresses. Kate Hudson, who is the co-founder of the brand, says that she loves summer and she is exciting about this new line of clothing. The material of the swimwear is created from recycled fabrics. The muse for the design of the swimwear comes from tribal designs, tropical designs, and nautical designs. UV Protection is built in the swimwear.

Fabletics was established in 2012. The clothing line started because Kate Hudson, Don Ressler, and Adam Goldenberg saw an opportunity in the active wear clothing world. They wanted to offer active wear at a much affordable price without skipping on quality and style. In 2014, Fabletics expands to Germany, France, and the U.K. Later that year, they expanded to Canada.

By January 2015, they had shipped out one million orders. A month later, Fabletics started shipping in Australia. In June 2015, the clothing line added a men’s clothing line called FL2 and expanded to Spain and the Netherlands. In September and October 2015, they opened six physical stores. On the website, customers can see each month what Kate Hudson likes in the clothing line. They can order what she likes too.

In a Youtube video, Fabletics offers a VIP membership. The VIP membership is where you get a hand picked choices of clothing every month in an email. You can look at the clothing until the fifth of every month. If you don’t like the clothing they picked, you can skip the month. But you have to skip the month before the fifth unless you want to be charge for the clothes. With the VIP membership, you can get forty to fifty percent off the clothing line, reward points for free gear, and for orders over 49 dollars free shipping.
