Don’t Let A Few Bad Reviews Derail Your Startup

For startups to succeed, they have to gain consumer’s trust. Most entrepreneurs try very hard to deliver exactly what they’ve promised and go above and beyond with their customer service. It’s the ideal way to build brand loyalty and get current customers to rave about your product on social media. Unfortunately, you can’t please everyone; no matter how hard you try. A few decades ago, this didn’t matter much since the unhappy customers just complained to their friends, while many more consumers happily spread the word about your business and you gained new customers.

Today, however, a single disgruntled customer can quickly tell the world about their dissatisfaction. They can review your product on multiple websites or, if they are really vindictive, they can start a blog and trash your startup. One Internet-savvy hater can cause a lot of damage by attacking your business and your product under multiple names so it looks like you have dozens of unhappy customers.

Never get into an online argument with someone who is maligning your reputation or you will appear unprofessional. Hire a firm like SearchCleanup.com to clean up your company’s search results. They are experts in online reputation management so you don’t have to let harmful reviews and unflattering comments wreck your business.

As an entrepreneur, you should stay focused on running your business. Don’t refute negative comments and reviews, but do apologize if you made a mistake. Learn from constructive comments, but ignore people who seem intent on harming your business. Let SearchCleanup.com and the search cleanup team deal with bad reviews and damaging articles while you continue to build your brand.

George Soros Contends That The European Union Should Provide Assistance To Ukraine

George Soros posits that the economy of the new Ukraine has been adversely affected by the Russian aggression. This situation has seen Ukraine struggle in dealing with its creditors. However, as part of the International Monetary Fund condition, Ukraine has been negotiating with its creditors. In addition, the country has been renegotiating its debts in San Francisco.

It is imperative to note that Ukraine has no recourse to bankruptcy. In Ukraine, there is no chapter 11. This way, it is difficult for the sovereign borrowers to devise an agreement between the borrowers and lenders as well as arbitrate negotiations between these two sides and make decisions over the debts that need to be reorganized. In this situation, Ukraine’s only leverage is to issue a warning regarding its intent to default unless it is provided with debt relief. Soros contends that bondholders must be warning Ukraine that if it defaults in its obligation, no investor would be willing to invest in the country.

It is crucial to note that when a nation and its lenders devise a speedy deal, such a country is able to return to the market within a year or two. A country is not kept out of the markets because of the default but because of the economic problems that resulted in the default. It is for this reason that in 1989, Nicholas Brady unveiled the Brady Plan. Nicholas is the former U.S. Treasury Secretary. The Brady Plan sought to request banks to accept debt relief, especially for countries that are pursuing sensible reforms in Latin America. Brady understood that most investors would not focus much in the past but rather into the future in terms of lending to a nation that has defaulted on its obligations.

A New Policy to Rescue Ukraine

Sustaining Ukraine’s Breakthrough

George posits that the Ukrainian uprising had positive outcomes. This is because citizens armed with sticks and shields made of metal garbage can lids and cardboard boxes managed to overwhelm a contingent of police force using live ammunition. Soros contends that even though there were many casualties, citizens prevailed in the end. This uprising goes into the history books as one that left a lasting imprint on the collective memory of the society. In answering how such a thing could happen, George Soros asserted that the unpredictability of historical events such as the Ukraine uprising are highly correlated to the aspect of ambiguity in human identity.

People’s identity incorporates the individual elements as well as components of larger units where they belong. Soros argues that individual’s impact on reality is dependent on the elements that dominate one’s behavior. He continues to argue that when civilians launched attacks in Kyiv, on an armed force, their spirit of defending the nation outweighed their concerns regarding individual mortality. The objective of the attacks was to inspire a sense of unity to the divided society that was on a brink of civil war. To this end, Ukrainians have proved their allegiance to the European Union. This unity is dependent on Europe’s response.

Bridging the mountains, Andy Wirth’s plan to connect two of North Tahoe’s most iconic ski resorts.

Two of North Tahoe’s iconic ski resorts, Alpine Meadows, and Squaw Valley, have a long history with one another. Both resorts are so close together that they are visible from the other’s mountain. Learn more about Andy Wirth: http://www.ironman.com/triathlon/news/articles/2014/09/andy-wirth-squaw-valley.aspx

Despite the close distance, these two ski resorts have been divided by different cultures and slopes. That is soon going to change. Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Alpine is planning open a gondola to connect both resorts together. Although, this news comes alongside a controversial push to expand Squaw Valley’s village.

Andy Wirth says in an op-ed published through Powder Magazine that “connecting Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows is something skiers and snowboarders both who live here and who visit have dreamed of for decades” and promises that his group plans on “seeking with this announcement lots of community input and involvement.” He says the gondola project “originated with the founder of Squaw Valley, Wayne Poulsen’s vision decades ago” and its a goal he plans on fulfilling.

When asked about the resistance he has met from local skiers, afraid of the effect on he Granite Chief Wilderness Area and Five Lakes. Wirth, a wilderness ranger in his youth, points out the fact that his grandfather helped write the Wilderness Act of 1963, so he is well versed in the effect his construction would have and how to minimize it. Learn more about Andy Wirth: www.kcrw.com/people/andy-wirth

Andy Wirth also contributes a lot to various environmental and community service organizations in the local area. His grandfather and ranger background aside, Wirth is an interesting character on his own.

In 2013, he was injured in a skydiving accident. This near fatal disaster changes his perspective on life and led to the founding of the ‘Wounded Warrior’ Ironman Team. The team raises money for the Navy Seal Foundation. Wirth is a man that knows how to follow his dreams.

Following his near-fatal accident, he had to work hard to make a full recovery. This drive for success is what pushes Wirth forward in pursuing the goals of Wayne Poulsen, and many skiers and snowboarders around the world in creating a link between these two prestigious ski resorts.

George Soros Makes a Very Generous Donation to Hilary Clinton

George Soros is one of the leading names when it comes to the financial world. Soros makes the top of lists when it comes to investing and top net worth holders in the world. Soros is a very influential individual not only in the world of business and finance but in the world of politics as well. Politico has reported that Soros has recently donated $8 Million dollars to Clinton’s campaign. This $8 Million dollar donation has raised Hillary Clinton’s total contributions to over $41 Million dollars. This gives Clinton a great deal of financial power in her campaign over Sanders.

In the past, George Soros has been known to be one of the most generous democratic contributors. This can be seen back in 2004 when Soros donated $20 million dollars to try to see George W. Bush be defeated. He didn’t really care who was going to be elected into office, as long as it was not Bush. This set the bar high for other contributors who normally aren’t willing to drop 8 figures on their party or candidate of choice. However, when it is needed, Soros is willing to spend the type of money that he feels is necessary for his political voice to be heard.

Soros has a voice that resonates across the globe. When Soros has something to say, people are ready to listen in the financial industry and all other industries alike. Soros has stated that there are current market conditions that are looking very similar to those right before the crash of 2008. Soros has stated that the current economic growth model in China is one that is not sustainable at its current rate. If China fails to grow over the next few years, it could be very detrimental to the global economy. It is important that individuals, business owners, and investors all look for proper ways to prepare for similar market conditions in the near future.

QNET Uses Social Media to Boost International Charity

Music can make a positive change in the world. This is exactly what RYTHM Foundation aims to do over a four week period. Through this new initiative, the campaign invites individuals to engage their communities and encourage them to become a part of their new exciting campaign. This campaign, the Positive Thoughts Project, centers on a platform we all know and appreciate: social media. This campaign is the creation of HomePure! How does it work? One simply leaves a positive thought as a comment on a Facebook Post. After the campaign receives 500 comments, QNET has pledged to do their part by donating HomePure RED to Taarana, a special learning needs school for children. In the event that an additional 500 comments are received during phase 2 QNET has pledged to give a HomePure RED to UAE center for disabled children, Rashid Centre. These two campaigns will give children access to pure water within regions where this resource is not readily available.

It is important to remember that only positive comments will be considered for the charity donation, and individuals can submit a maximum of 3 posts in total throughout the length of the campaign. The more comments, the more generosity. So it is important to begin commenting today. People that have fulfilled their comments quota will then need to spread the word around. This campaign is so extraordinarily easy to participate in that thousands could essentially participate! Both these special needs centers have contributed significantly to education of special needs children, but now need help to continue doing so.

QNET is known for its advanced water filtration systems. They understand that water is substantially polluted with contaminants because of industrial and environmental upset. The people who are most at risk often live in poorer areas where sewage and waste are disposed of. These types of wastes make people sick and susceptible to liver damage, cancer and other long-term health conditions. Organic contaminants such as disease-carrying microorganisms, rotten material, and animal waste can also infiltrate water systems.

Rhythm Foundation has celebrated its 28th season of outstanding entertainment in the in South Florida. It specializes in providing the best of international music, and will continue to engage the community through its festive concerts and charity events. Their focus on international music makes them especially popular at festivals and events held in South Florida. A multi-cultural state, much like California, this foundation will continue to involve itself in world-wide charity efforts.

Thor Halvorssen Stuns Fox News

Thor Halvorssen is a human rights advocate and the founder of the Human Rights Foundation. His foundation brings together fellow advocates of human rights to speak out against oppression and the lack of individual freedoms in governments around the world. Halvorssen was born in Venezuela into a connected family who suffered under the socialist government of Hugo Chavez. His father was held as a political prisoner, and his mother was shot while attending a peaceful demonstration against the Chavez government. He has condemned not only Chavez but Che Gueverra, and many who know of Thor Halvorssen would assume that he is opposed to any socialist government or socialist candidate.

Fox News wanted to practice their anti-socialist leanings by criticizing the candidacy of the socialist democrat, Bernie Sanders. They offered Halvorssen an opportunity to be interviewed live on their cable network. The plan seemed simple enough; Halvorssen would appear on the program and criticize socialist governments along with Bernie Sanders and his supporters. The interview began, and Halvorssen appeared relaxed and ready, but as the questioning began there was a distinct change of direction for the interview. Halvorssen was not going to sabotage the Sanders campaign; instead, he said that socialism can work in a democratic system. There are excellent socialist governments in northern Europe, and he even said that socialism can work in the United States of America. The interviewer tried to get Halvorssen back on track, but he was resolute. He was opposed to any government that represses its people. He felt that the socialist government in Venezuela was repressive, he had proof; both his parents were victims. He went on to condemn Hillary Clinton because she has accepted campaign contributions from dictatorial regimes that viciously oppress their citizens. The Fox host looked perplexed. And then Halvorssen landed the knock-out punch by saying that he had just given the Sanders campaign the largest campaign donation allowable by law. It was game, set, and match for Halvorssen as the Fox host quickly ended the interview.

The interview has become a popular YouTube video.

Companies such as Purinastore’s Beneful and the Freshpet Inc. factory have been blending their dog food with lamb and salmon for years but now that the Freshpet factory is pumping out a gourmet style food for the dogs it’s hard to beat their products.

Beneful has been in the business of dog food for a very long time and when they get hooked on selling a product online: http://www.amazon.com/Beneful-Food-Originals-Real-15-5-Pound/dp/B001VJ0B0I like this you know that it means that that product is something major. They have developed serious competition in the Freshpet and Blue Buffalo companies with the new dog food being created has been leaps and bounds healthier for dogs and they seem to love it considerably more as well. The dogs are eating more and more of it because they now have access to something so good.

The recent surge in the dog food trend has been called an eat-like-your-owner trend where the dogs are going to eat food similar to what their owners would eat for a meal. The higher proteins and the better quality foods are making a big difference in the happiness of the dogs. The sales of dog food have gone up almost 45% in the past few years and continue to be on the rise. With the big name companies moving to make this trend a more common and positive thing there is nothing that will stop the move and the dogs couldn’t be happier with it.

A happier dog means a happier life and with the new dog food trend you get just that. There’s no doubt that this trend will continue to be at the head of the market and make waves for years to come.
