The Latest in Cell Phone Service

FreedomPop has been making waves as a cheaper, more fester alternative to cell phone plans with major companies such as Verizon and AT&T. A recent FreedomPop review outlines the unique structure of the company, in addition to the different plans offered and the benefits of switching to this service.

The most basic plan offered is the ever popular Free Plan. The free service includes 200 voice minutes, 500 text messages and 500 MB of data. This is a perfect introductory plan, and many users who enjoy their experience soon choose to upgrade to a paid (yet still extremely affordable compared to other companies) plan.

One such plan comes in at only $5 per month. This is the wi-Fi plan, connecting users to 10 million wifi hotspots in the country. That way, instead of paying for data, text, or voice minutes, the user is paying for connectivity that will give them access to all of these services. However, the one caveat is for those who live in more rural areas where wi-Fi hotspots are more infrequent. In that case, they would not have access to service unless they travel to a more metropolitan and urban area.

Finally, FreedomPop has a $19.99 plan that offers unlimited voice, text and data. Not only is this ore affordable than most major carriers, it is perfect for those in cities or in the suburbs, as users are covered no matter what.

FreedomPop’s service has been rated as fairly strong. It streams all its data, voice and text through Sprint. Sprint is itself one of the major carriers in cell service, and is popular for its reliability and speed.

FreedomPop offers affordable phones for those in the market, but also allows customers to stream through their personal devices. Additionally, they have tablets and the option to purchase lower priced old Sprint devices on eBay, which may facilitate the streaming service. For those who truly enjoy FreedomPop, home Internet service is the newest addition to its lineup.

For those tired of paying too much for products they don’t use, FreedomPop is an alternative that is swiftly growing in popularity.

Maluf’s Take On UK Exiting The EU

After the announcement of the exit of the UK EU (European Union), elected by a referendum at the end of June, the immediate effect was a large drop in stock markets across Europe, experts point out that this output can generate lasting impacts on the global economy, says the executive Flavio Maluf.

According to numbers released by the European Union for the year 2014, the UK has contributed substantially to the organization.

However, Flavio Maluf notes that, according to the director of FN Capital operations, Paulo Figueiredo, the UK’s isolation block will result in a considerable drop in investment received by the country.

Among the EU member countries, there is a union that allows free trade without tax application and extra quotas on products from other countries. With the block output, the UK will have new rates in relation to what was practiced before, which is likely to harm the country’s foreign trade with the EU. On the other hand, says Flavio Maluf, according to the expert Otto Nogami, this output can also bring further benefits to the UK, as from now, the country may enter into bilateral agreements that were not previously reachable.

With the exit of the United Kingdom of the European Union, Brazil can benefit because it will have the chance to enter into bilateral agreements with the country.

The departure of the British EU is a great loss to the block, because it had as core countries Germany, France and the UK itself, and much of its structure is established in these three countries. Currently, France show signs of weakness and fatigue in its economy, thus it is up to Germany to sustain, in economic terms, the block. According to the president of Eucatex, Flavio Maluf, it is a great uncertainty due to the impact that this output can generate positioning of other countries that are part of the block.

Flávio Maluf is a Brazilian Businessman, mechanical engineer, graduated from the Armando Alvares Penteado Foundation (FAAP).  Check him out on Twitter here.

He is president of the company Eucatex and group GrandFood and eldest son of politician Paulo Maluf.

George Soros: Why Helping Ukraine should be Europe’s Top Agenda

Billionaire’s hedge fund manager has been a staunch advocate of the reestablishment of Ukraine’s economy. Recently, he wrote an article on Project Syndicate, highlighting why the European Union will benefit from helping the troubled country. Basing on this, he explains that Ukraine should be Europe’s topmost priority.

George Soros is of the opinion that the Ukrainian crisis largely resulted from Crimea’s annexation by Russia. The full blown crisis that has resulted from the annexation is threatening the unity of the EU. The union has been hesitant to act because numerous crises are almost crippling it. According to Soros, the European Union needs to put its house in order so that it can address the crises bedeviling it.

Why Ukraine Should be Saved from Further Turmoil

The hedge fund billionaire opines that on formation, the European Union wanted to promote individual sovereignty among member countries whilst enhancing the common good of the entire bloc. For years, this acted as the guiding light of the union, which was regarded as the archetype of good governance. Unfortunately, the crises faced by the EU in the course of its existence, have weakened it instead of galvanizing it. The euro crisis in particular, has wedged a significant rift between debtor and borrower countries.

Many citizens currently perceive the union as a relationship of convenience between rich nations and poorer nations. The former have been incessant in imposing their ideologies on the latter. This is the situation that is currently facing Ukraine. The annexation of Crimea is a pointer of neocolonialism and tyranny. The occupation happened at a time when the EU was faced with the Greek crisis among other challenges. It was therefore unable to act decisively.

The Maidan Revolution gave birth to a new Ukraine, which is resolute in its efforts to oppose Russian ideologies. This explains why Moscow has been relentless in its efforts to destabilize Kiev. So far, Ukrainians have managed to stand up against Russian advancement. This is the right time for the European Union to offer its support to Ukraine. For a long time, Ukrainians have shown their willingness to be part of the EU. The union should lead the way in showing them that they have its support.

Europe’s Ukrainian Lifeline

Strategies that Can Help Ukraine Stabilize

According to Soros, there is need for the European Union to draw a raft of measures, which will help bring things back to normal. Problems that bedeviled the old Ukraine such as massive corruption and tyranny, should be done away with. Political reforms must be put in place so that public institutions become accountable to the public.

Economically, the EU should help Ukraine market its products to a wider market. Providing the country with the necessary management expertise will similarly go a long way in helping its economy to recover. Investors should also be lured to the country because it has a massive potential. All investments made in Ukraine should be guaranteed by bodies such as the World Bank’s Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency. This show of goodwill will spur Ukrainians into working towards the economic recovery of their country.

Entering Tradition: Exploring the Kabbalah

Kabbalah, or The Kabbalah, is a branch of ontological metaphysics (the philosophical examination and contemplation of reality and being) derived from the early roots of the Judeo-Christian tradition. The Kabbalah is not a religion in and of itself but rather a methodology and esoteric discipline that is primarily concerned with discerning the connection between the finite and the infinite realms of being as well as disentangling their hidden meanings and mysteries. Like most other esoteric traditions, Kabbalic teachings seek to explain the nature of man, the universe and their relationship.

The foundation of most Kabbalistic thought comes from collection of test works known as the Zohar, which means, “Radiance.” The Zohar focuses on three main topics, mystic psychology and inner knowing, a investigation of the esoteric messages contained within the Torah and lastly, a deep reverie on the origins of the universe via cosmogony models. The Zohar was originally written in a old version of Aramaic, thankfully, however, the book has been translated into numerous languages for readers to peruse the world over.

One of the foremost institutes for the study of Kabbalistic thought is the Kabbalah Centre International, a religious non profit organization based out of Los Angeles, California. The Kabbalah Centre International provides a extensive list of courses revolving around the intensive study of the Zohar and other associated texts. Most of the information is disseminated via study groups which can be attended by wisdom seekers the world over, either through the institutes brick and mortar gathering points or through the internet. All of the courses, along with the Centre International itself, was designed and organized by the American rabbi, Philip Berg alongside his wife, Karen Berg. For those interested in learning more about the teachings of the Zohar, the Kabbalah Centre Internal is a excellent resource.

Incorporate Olympic Valley Sets Sights Forward

 

According to the Reno-Gazette-Journal, Andy Wirth, the chief executive officer of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, has been fighting a two-front war, battles dealing with the drought in California and Olympic Valley incorporation.

For many years, the ski resorts and hotels in Olympic Valley have had a lot of business prosperity. Squaw Valley Ski Resorts, the parent company of Squaw Valley Resort and Alpine Meadows, is currently one of the most prominent ski resorts in the United States, and this resort was the one that hosted the Winter Olympics in 1960. But according to Wirth, things have not been the same for more than five years.

Squaw Valley Resort and other similar businesses near Tahoe benefited from the storms and constant precipitations that would allow winter resorts to do business for longer periods of time. Now, Squaw Valley opens late in winter, and each year, mother nature has become harsher. Such climate changes are also affecting other businesses, such as bars and cafes, which depend on the clientele of Squaw Valley Resort as well.

But Wirth also had to deal with the possible incorporation of Olympic Valley, home to Squaw Valley Resort. Fortunately, this problem was under the control of the chief executive officer. And after spending hundreds of thousands of dollars fighting the incorporation, those supporting the incorporation seized in their efforts. For the successful business man, this fight actually meant something greater.

According to Wirth, if Olympic Valley would have been incorporated, every single business and local resident would have been affected as well. Taxes would have incremented, increasing the prices of products and services offered by businesses. The local residents also depend on certain services, such as road maintenance. Other communities also utilize resources provided by Olympic Valley, and they depend on them too. Now that Wirth has dealt with the incorporation attempt, he wants to help the local communities in regards to transportation services.

Wirth has been in the mountain resort and hotel industry for almost three decades. He was been the president and chief executive officer of Squaw Valley Ski Holdings since 2010. He holds a degree in science from the University in Colorado, and for many years he has been involved in philanthropic acts. He is the founder of Special Warfare Warriors, an organization that provides support to the Navy SEAL Foundation. Last year, he organized a team for the IRONMAN at Lake Tahoe. He did it in order to honor Navy SEALs. More information can be found about Wirth at https://about.me/andywirth and https://www.crowdrise.com/wwsupport.
