George Soros and his Battle for a Liberal Society

by Chris Holden - August 19th, 2017

George Soros, one of the biggest billionaires in the world, was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1930 and went to London to study before amassing a fortune as an investor in the United States.

The man later went on to establish the Open Society Foundations in 1979 when he felt he had garnered enough riches from his career as a successful hedge fund manager, with the core aim of helping governments transition from communism to an open form of democracy that would involve the common people. George Soros did this stating that his financial independence obliged him to take a stand on controversial issues “because others cannot.”

The Open Society began its support of a more inclusive and transparent system of governance worldwide by providing scholarships to black students to attend the University of Cape Town along with opportunities to Eastern European dissidents to study in foreign institutions.

George Soros’ support for causes such as ending racism and easing restrictions on migrants has continued over three decades to the present day, with the protests following the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August 2014 being organized on a country-wide scale by organizations funded by Open Society. In all, about $33 million had been provided by Soros to social justice groups already on the ground, with the sole aim of transforming the local tragedy into a national concern with the power of news as well as social media at hand.

In fact, the #BlackLivesMatter movement, that had catapulted the series of attacks on black, unarmed civilians (including Michael Brown) without cause by the American police into the global spotlight, was offered help by local organizations based in Ferguson that were funded by Open Society, and Colorlines, an online news platform that reported tirelessly on Black Lives Matter, was published by a company that was also aided financially by George Soros. Offering substantial amounts to this broad range of interlinked human rights groups to help them get their message across is the cornerstone of Soros’ philanthropic career, all with the goal to diversify communities globally and assist people in power to govern with open minds. George Soros summed it up nicely when he said, “…our understanding of the world is inherently imperfect. What is imperfect can be improved.”

As an influential and life-changing philanthropist, magnate and billionaire, George Soros has changed the future of many nations in the world, including the United States, being an active charitable personality and a big role-player in political disputes including the Hillary and Clinton Presidency competition. Read his profile at Business Insider.

Ranked on Forbes’ list of most prominent billionaires in the world, with a net-worth that surpasses others by miles, George Soros is continuing to support many communities with necessities through the use of his funding and the Open Society Foundations.

Correction Imminent On California Housing According To Nick Vertucci

by Chris Holden - August 13th, 2017

Nick Vertucci, a self-made real estate investor and housing expert has been recently tweeting about the housing crisis in California. It’s been discussed in various national news outlets and publications about where the future of the state’s housing will be if action is not taken. It’s expected that legislators will pass a bill regarding affordable housing in the coming days that may allow for contractors to build units in areas where zoning laws don’t currently permit it, but it certainly won’t come without opposition from high profile homeowners who are already established in those areas. Yet with homelessness on the rise and the average housing cost at half a million dollars in California, the trend cannot go on forever.


For those who may not be able to afford expensive housing but are willing to learn how to enter the real estate world, Nick Vertucci may just be the person they want to see. He’s the CEO of Nick Vertucci companies and is the founder of an institute known as NV Real Estate Academy. This academy offers training courses that make the basics of real estate simple to understand and allow people to get started at a fast pace. The academy will even put people out in the field ready to take on the challenges in the market. The courses consist of teaching investors what to look for when buying property, how they can take a house in poor condition and flip it for a high price, and even entering the commercial markets.


Nick Vertucci himself started out like many people who enroll in his academy. His family was very poor growing up and he even lost his father while he was quite young. He couldn’t afford college education, so he was living out of his vehicle by the time he turned 18. Vertucci was determined that he would start his own business, and the opportunity came after he learned how to repair computers. He built a fairly successful company and even became married and had several children during this time, but unfortunately this dream didn’t last forever when the dotcom bubble burst. Once again in need of starting over, Vertucci found out about a real estate seminar from a friend, and upon attending it learned quickly how he could invest in homes and make money. Since then he has found unparalleled success at his company and has been proud to help change others’ lives through the NV Real Estate Academy.

Where will you go when you personal cyber security is compromised?

by Chris Holden - August 7th, 2017

At one point or another, we’ve all encountered those lengthy articles about the growing threats to personal cyber security; I myself have read more than a few. I’ve seen the rise of statistics throughout the years and didn’t care. That is until I became a statistic myself. Suddenly, the “WannaCry Attacks” of May 2017 (involving over 300,000 computers in at least 150 countries) and the astounding costs of cyber attacks from 2013 to 2015 (estimated to be in the range of $400 to $500 billion) became very real to me.

According to a cyber security article by Investing News, the threat of cyber attacks on medical devices will reach around $101 billion by 2018. I couldn’t bear the thought of any of my relatives falling prey to vulnerable personal cyber security during a medical emergency, among other things, so I took action.

“Rubica” was my answer. Being a digital security and privacy company I was glad to see that Rubica was not just for large businesses but could be used on any and all the devices in my home, from laptops to smartphones. With experts who’ve worked at Scotland Yard, the NSA and even the Navy, I can trust that they know when, where, and what to look for. With over a decade of protecting big businesses and small people, my personal cyber security is assured with Rubica (Yahoo News). It was simple, quick, and secure, so I didn’t wait. Will you?
