Daniel Taub was born in the United Kingdom and started his tenure as Israels Ambassador to Britain in 2011. He has expressed his concern over the fact that college campuses in Britain were beginning to show some anti-Semitic tendencies and explained that it is important that every person’s views and beliefs get equal representation in colleges. He commented that it is especially important that people can express themselves without having to feel afraid. Mr. Taub made history, of sorts, when he visited the city of Bradford after the city’s MP, George Galloway, called it an “Israel-free zone.” Everyone is now waiting to see who will succeed Taub as his time as Ambassador has come to an end.

 

Daniel Taub served for four years as the Ambassador of Israel to Britain, and he is also a lawyer as well as a writer. His articles about the Middle East and Israel have been published in the Daily Telegraph, the Huffington Post, The Times, and many other publications. His book, Parasha Diplomatit, has him offering his thoughts on biblical weekly sections, and he also uses humor as well as political angles to analyze the Torah. Many know Mr. Taub as the writer and creative mind behind HeChatzer, which is a drama popular in Israel that attempts to build bridges between religious ideologies.

 

Daniel Taub earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Literature while studying at University College, Oxford and he proceeded to receive a UK Certification for Lawyers while at

Chancery Lane School of Law. After this, Taub studied at University College, London where he received a Master’s Degree in Law, and he then earned a Master’s Degree in Public Policy while attending Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. He is ever hopeful that the bonds between Israel and Britain will remain strong and only get better going into the future.

 

 

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.

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.

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.

Lori Senecal to step down as the CEO of CP+B

It was smiles in March of 2015 when Senecal took over as the CEO of CP+B, but who knew her tenure would be that short-lived? She is now set to step down from the top leadership of the company in 2017. However, Lori Senecal will be remembered for great achievements by the company during her tenure. She will be remembered as the leader who shipped CP+B toward the American Airlines win.

Why Lori Joined CP+B

It is quite surprising that her departure from the company had been planned since she joined the company back in 2015. Nevertheless, she has contributed greatly to the success of the company and made lots of legacies. When asked, Porter said that he brought Senecal aboard so that she could redefine the company regarding leadership. She is such a genius manager who has great potentials to save a company from falling below its key objectives and plan. Porter went further to state that Senecal even performed better than he thought she would.

Major Achievements

When Senecal joined CP+B as the CEO, she had written a plan and some goals that she had to achieve no matter what come may. So, she ensured that her management is channeled toward unique achievements like winning the American Airlines. Lori also ensured the allocation of resources is done with the aim of enhancing the worldwide management and that one could not go unachieved. She also ensured that the communication platform is redefined so that it matches the latest technological innovations and hence the company can compete fairly with its core rivals.

Though it is now the time that she stepped down, Lori Senecal has proven to be one of the world’s best corporate leaders. According to campaignlive.co.uk, if the next CEO adopts the same leadership skills and even develop them further chances are that the company would record an unprecedented performance. All the credits would however still go to Lori for having manifested great aggressiveness regarding saving the company from going down the same road as those that fell off and disappeared. CP+B should focus on bringing more leaders like Lori so that it can be able to grow exponentially. It is worth noting that Lori Senecal will leave the advertisement sector and venture into other things of personal interest. Follow Lori on Twitter.
