Adam Milstein Believes In Three Things That Can Unify Israeli-Americans And Other Jews

Adam Milstein is excited about what young Jewish-Americans are coming to realize about Israel and their connection to it. He’s Chairman of the Israeli-American Council (IAC) and is connected with many other non-profits. After seeing the IAC’s annual conference this last fall, he noticed a lot of young people engaging in conversations about Israel and patriotism towards it. Most Jewish-Americans and expatriated Israelis weren’t usually giving much thought to Israel some 20 years ago because of distance and what they perceived as a major cultural divide between Israelis living in the nation and those abroad. But the IAC, AIPAC and others are starting to change that attitude through educational initiatives and activities that make Israeli-Americans and Jews feel they’re truly connected to the homeland again.

Adam Milstein says there are three things that bind him and his target groups to Israel and bring unity. He says the first is Israeliness, which includes a deep pride and satisfaction in Israel’s heritage and culture, but also the idea that all Jews and Israelis look out for each other no matter their differences. The second is supporting Israel unconditionally even if you don’t agree with all of its policies and taking a stand against anti-Israeli laws or organizations. The third is the idea that everyone can think outside the box and learn from each other on how life can be. It’s a two-way street with Israeli-Americans integrating into the established Jewish-American community, but also the Israeli-Americans bringing new perspective into it.

Adam Milstein has lived in both Israel and the US and did his military service while still in Israel and fighting in the Yom Kippur War which brought about a major defeat of the Egyptian forces. He has a bachelor’s degree from the Technion, a background in building framing and currently is in real estate at Hager Pacific Properties, a major luxury property broker. His career there has consisted of arranging the financing of property purchases and mediating deals between clients. Along with being Chairman of the IAC and it’s partners, Adam Milstein is also involved with StandWithUs and 12 Tribe Films which have started the annual Inspired By Israel video competition. He’s also an author for the Jerusalem Post and the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. His facebook page

Enjoy an Eventful Time This Week At Roberto Santiago’s Mall

One thing that gives the impression of a good mall is a mall that draws a crowd. After building a mall, the owner has to figure out ways to draw a huge crowd. One thing that he does is deal with the acceptance of the retailers that come to take over. Among the first retailers that are to be accepted in a shopping mall are the fashion retailers. They have to find what is known as an anchor for the mall. These are the large stores that bring in the crowd. At the same time, these stores have to have some kind of event going on a regular basis.

 

Roberto Santiago was tasked with not only building a large space for retailers, but also figuring out how to draw in the customers and keep them coming so that the mall will continue to grow. As the mall has grown, he has thought about what can be done to give customers more reasons to come to the mall. Among the new facilities that have opened up in the mall are arcades, movie theaters, concert halls and other areas where people can hang out and enjoy themselves.

 

It is now a time when online shopping is competing with the shopping mall. Shopping malls and the retailers in the facility are struggling to find ways to keep the customers coming. One thing that they can do is offer entertainment. Entertainment seems to be the future of shopping malls that manage to keep everything going. For one thing, shopping malls are opening places where people can play video games. There are also bars and lounges that are actually opening up in and around the mall.

 

Roberto Santiago knows that his mall has a lot of life in it. For one thing, he uses his creativity in order to find out what customers like and what would bring him to his mall. One of the most successful things about his mall is that it offers people a reason to stay there. Some of the most successful stores will have customers engaging in more ways than just buying a product and leaving.

 

Ian King, the authoritative voice in crypto currency

Ian King is an experienced trader. Before joining cryptocurrency trade, he was an expert in hedge fund and equities on Wall Street. Currently, Ian King is a contributor to Bayan Hill Publishing as an expert on crypto currency.

Crypto currency refers to a change in the medium of trade. Instead of having physical money, now there is digitals ‘smart’ money. Traditionally, there has to be a bank to validate the value of money and the goods and services it can buy. Cryptocurrency allows for two people to sell and buy digital goods using digital money and have their money safely transferred to them. The trade has been made possible in such a way that both parties know it happened and cannot dispute. This abolishes the need for banks since they are now not needed to validate the value of digital money.

When Ian learnt about cryptocurrency in 2012, he was intrigued about how it works. To get a hung of how this type of investment worked, he began to buy and sell crypto assets. With time he realised that cryptocurrency yields more profit that what he had investing in on Wall Street. However, even though Ian was realising abnormal profits in Crypto currency trade, every time he engaged friends on the subject he realised that not many of them had knowledge of the trade or its benefits. Many were believers of the traditional method of investing on Wall Street. Read this article at ZeroHedge about Ian King

This was his inspiration in starting up his own company where he educates people on crypto currency and helps people trade in it. Ian King says that crypto currency trade is not entirely different from Wall Street. Investor behaviours are the same, the situations to be judged are very much alike and timing is everything. The only thing that requires a lot of research and understanding is how crypto currency works.

Ian king says his job as a life saver at the beach is what prepared him for what he is doing now. When saving a drowning person, he says, the only thing you can rely on is your instincts and good judgement. This taught him to assess a situation and quickly decide on a plan of action. This has been his greatest asset; his ability to judge the market and decide on when it’s the best time to buy or sell. Even as a college student studying medicine with hopes of becoming a psychiatrist, Ian King followed the trends of the market and invested in dot-com stocks.

At the Frontline of Innovation with Malcom CasSelle

Malcolm CasSelle has always been at the forefront of technological innovation. In 1995, the Stanford graduate in computer sciences co-founded NetNoir, the first outside company to receive investment from the AOL Greenhouse Program. He served as CTO until 1998, transitioning to the role of senior vice president for Pacific Century Cyberworks. Over the next decade he held major management position in numerous web-based investment firms. Following the progression of technology as it quickly took over. He was a major player in Groupon’s joint venture with Tencent, and served as vice president and CEO for the first major companies to handle online monetary transactions. Now CasSelle is at the forefront again, and this time his focus is on cryptocurrency.

Cryptocurrency is a digital unit designed to operate like actual currency in an exchange medium. It utilizes cryptography so that transactions can be kept secure. Such assets are alternative forms of actual currency and can be traded for other digital assets or in some cases physical objects. Bitcoinsare the first type of cryptocurrency to be decentralized, allowing many people who made an investment in the assets to cash out. One such person was Malcom CasSelle. CasSelle is currenty the CIO of OPSkins, a company focused on sales of in-game currencies and assets for video games. OPSkins is also the largest bitcoin merchant around. In tandem with OPSkinsCasSelle is the president of Worldwide Asset eXchange, or WAX, a player-to-player decentralized marketplace for the sale and trade of digital assets. Both companies have played a large part in the rise of cryptocurrency, and CasSelle has been firmly at the helm.

Centralized cryptocurrency provides too many limitations. It restricts players and keeps everything digital. There is no opportunity for an investor to transfer their assets to actual cash. Decentralization allows for that, as players can trade or sell digital currency. However, it can be dangerous. Decentralized networks run risk of fragmentation and fraud. WAX offers the first solution with the use of blockchains to keep the network secure. When WAX eventually launches, Malcom CasSelle will once again be at the forefront of innovation.

Ted Bauman reveals how investors can make money off the tax cuts

Just the other day, Ted Bauman wrote an article predicting the implications of the tax cuts passed by the House of Representatives recently. He goes further to reveal how investors can benefit from this action and make some money off of it. R. Bauman begins the article with a personal account of his younger years more than 30 years ago when he landed in South Africa. In South Africa the United States dollar was far much stronger than the South African Rand back then, Ted immediately spotted an opportunity and consequently bought an asset which has paid off all through. In the article, Ted recommends this move to his readers encouraging them that they could never go wrong. Ted goes further to elaborate reasons as to why he finds this to be the most pertinent time to strike by saying that he predicts a weakening of the US dollar in most financial markets in the near future in the wake of the recently passed tax cuts by the house of representatives. Visit crunchbase.com to know more about Ted Bauman.

Ted took his time to break down the financial market dynamics and how they relate to different economic indicators of any given country. A strong dollar is beneficial to Americans traveling abroad especially to countries where their currency is weaker compared to the dollar as they find stuff there to be really cheap and hence affordable while on the other hand, products made in the US find it hard to penetrate such markets since the products seem to be highly priced. This in effect hurts the US manufacturing sector and therefore increasing the rates of unemployment given that the industry is one of the country’s top employer. On the other hand, a strong US dollar means that imports from countries with weaker currency when compared to the dollar seem cheap and affordable to most American consumers hence their preference which also, in turn, hurts the manufacturing and industry and balance of trade. Read this articles about precision profits, click here.

Analysts predict that the tax cuts will cause a $1.5 trillion federal deficit which will, in turn, lead to a weakened US dollar making it the perfect time to invest in foreign assets that are priced at local currencies which are weaker compared to the dollar. When the dollar starts dropping, the value of the foreign assets will thus be higher in US dollars than when you bought them.

Ted Bauman is an experienced financial expert who specializes in asset protection and low-risk investment.

Several Tips that Brazilian Investors Need to Know About, Courtesy of Igor Cornelsen

Included below are four of the best investing tips of Igor Cornelsen for Brazil’s marketplace.

Investors need to trust their assets in reputable institutions

Igor Cornelsen states that there are roughly ten large, reputable banks currently operating in the South American nation of Brazil. Since PR Newswire release this story in 2015, one of the top ten, HSBC Brazil, has been acquired by Banco Bradesco, leaving only nine banks worth their proverbial weight in salt.

Investors shouldn’t trust just any bank in holding their assets, as smaller banks generally don’t protect investors’ investments and securities as well as large, established financial institutions.

Brazil and China are more interconnected than most think

Brazil imports more raw materials from China than any nation on planet Earth. Many of these inputs are sent to Latin America in the form of finished goods. Similarly, many Chinese exports end up in Latin America. This web of interconnectivity means that investors need to keep a close watch on what’s going on in both countries, as well as each of their relationships with countries in Latin America.

Brazil’s real isn’t worth near its exorbitant price tag

The real is widely known to have flopped in recent years. The central bank of Brazil has offered tons of currency swaps since 2014 in efforts of keeping the real’s value from dropping further. Whenever a country’s central bank engages in currency swaps, it’s almost always a bad sign for their respective currencies.

Changes in politicians and policies they enact are important

The past two finance ministers in Brazil, Joaquim Levy and Guido Mantega, haven’t done great things for the financial position of Brazil. However, whenever they were appointed, there were immediate effects in financial markets. Similarly, whenever there are elections, it’s likely that financial markets will get shaken up.
