There are many celebrity impersonators in the world today. This profession has turned into a very big business for the people who are good enough to get hired on a regular basis. Elvis is the most commonly impersonated celebrity. However, the number of Michael Jackson impersonators has risen dramatically since the singer passed away. Sergio Cortes is widely considered to be the best of the best as far as impersonating the king of pop is concerned. Cortes has come a long way since his very humble upbringing. He is now famous around the world for impersonating one of the world’s most beloved entertainers.
Contrary to popular belief, it was not the life ambition of Cortes to become a Michael Jackson impersonator. In fact, he has admitted that he did not even know people made a living impersonating celebrities until he was around 20 years old. Cortes has admitted to being a fan of Jackson’s music as a youth. However, he would never imagine in his wildest dreams that one day he and Jackson would be linked so closely. Cortes grew up in Spain. He learned English by listening to American pop music. As time went by, Cortes noticed that something very strange was happening. Cortes was slowly beginning to look like Jackson. This was as a result of the treatments Jackson was undergoing to lighten his skin. Eventually, people began to confuse Cortes for Jackson when he went out in public.
Cortes was surprised by all of the attention at first. He knew that he had been blessed with a very unique opportunity. It was now just a question of finding out the right way to take advantage of it. Cortes began to get requests to show up at various parties and public events dressed as Jackson. He did this part-time and made a very good living in the process. He eventually decided to take things to the next level and become a Michael Jackson impersonator full-time. However, he knew that simply dressing and looking like Jackson would not be enough to get people to pay top dollar to hire him. He then began to take singing and dancing lessons. He learned the complex choreography to all of Jackson’s most legendary videos. After many months of practice, Cortes began to perform concerts where he would sing and dance like Jackson. These concerts have been a huge hit and made him internationally famous.
There have been a lot of big changes in the dog food industry lately. I’m referring to the work that the premium pet food companies have been doing to meet the high demand for their products. It seems that pet owners have finally became keen to what their pets should eat. Practical pet owners are doing what is right for their pets by choosing to buy the premium pet foods. They are no longer feeling guilty for settling on the cheap brands of pet foods. The cheap brands are carelessly putting terrible ingredients in their foods. On the other hand, premium brands regularly pay close attention to what ingredients they are using.
In a recent article from Twitter on premium pet food company practices, a CEO of a major premium pet food company talks about what he sees in the industry. He tells the reporter that premium pet foods are finally becoming more common among pet owners. This is great news to hear because that means that people have finally started to see how important a proper diet and nutrition is to their animal’s life.

Philip N. Diehl recently finished his term as the 35th Director of the U.S. Mint. It was here that this innovative man developed the 50 States Quarters program, which was a numismatist’s dream. Anyone who loved collecting coins as a child can appreciate this brilliant concept by Diehl. He also introduced the Sacagawea gold tone dollar coin which far surpassed the Susan B. Anthony dollar coin in popularity and common use. The Sacagawea dollar coin, again, a favorite of numismatist of any age who felt that the image of a Susan B. Anthony was not iconic in the style of Lady Liberty, an image gracing many American coins, whose graceful classical form could be admired by all.
Diehl has gone from the U.S. Mint to his home state of Texas where he is president of U.S. Money Reserve located in Austin. He brings to U.S. Money Reserve his commitment to outstanding customer service and his innovative and able mind which should propel U.S. Money Reserve to the heights of the after market gold and silver coin industry.
Diehl was recently interviewed by Eric Dye from Entrepreneur Podcast Network. In the interview Diehl stated that gold has always been a valuable hedge against an economic collapse, and he encourages investors to have gold and silver in their portfolios as a hedge against any economic downturn.

Diehl continues to stress the importance he placed on customer confidence and satisfaction which was his mantra when he served as director of the U.S. Mint. He also warned against the purchase of gold bullion instead of coins, stating that some bullion has been adulterated and the purity and governmental guarantee does not exist for bullion in the same way it exists for the coins sold by the U.S. Money Reserve.
Investors who feel that gold may not be a good investment should look back to 1972 when the price of gold was $63. an ounce.
Understanding the role of Russia in the continued Syrian conflict with ISIS has been something I have found difficulty in doing, but an article by George Soros for Project Syndicate makes clear the economic goals of Vladimir Putin from the conflict. The article by Soros reveals the problems facing Russia and Putin personally in the coming months, which the 86 year old financial expert states are now the driving force behind the bombing of Syria. Economics were not the original reason for Russia’s entry into the Syrian conflict, but the short term nature of the foreign policy strategy of Vladimir Putin has seen him take a chance to ease the potential financial problems of his country.
Putin is currently seeing his own position called into question within Russia for the first time since his rise to power because of a falling standard of living within the powerful country. One of the major issues facing Russia is the base of its power as an oil producing country is being attacked by lowering prices for oil seen around the world. Further issues Forbes billionaire George Soros sees as facing the country of Russia include a national debt that will reach maturity in 2017, which will see repayments made for the first time that will create issues for the economy and Putin personally.
George Soros has seen his own charitable Open Society Foundations recently hit with problems for its work in Russia, which included much of its work being banned because of the work completed to bring democracy to the people of eastern Europe. Soros made his name as a hedge fund specialist establishing his own fund that saw high average growth each year from 1969 to 2011, which has given the financial expert the chance to fund the work he sees as important in maintaining democracy around the world.
The role of Vladimir Putin in the Syrian bombing campaign comes at a time when his personal group of allies in Russia are facing the strain caused by economic sanctions imposed by member states of the European Union. The invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces has not been handled well by German leader Angekla Merkel, who George Soros sees as the leader of the free world after the beginning of the refugee crisis in Europe. The weakness of Europe has been played upon by Putin as he sees the chance to destroy the Union under the weight of refugees flooding the continent from Syria. Continuing to target Syrian civilians is something George Soros and I agree on as providing the best chance for Russia to halt a financial slide by prompting the disintegration of the European Union.

In August of 2006, the Human Rights Foundation opened its office in New York, and has since been hard at work in promoting individual liberty and freedom around the world. The Foundation is without bias or political affiliation, and bases its work on the 1976 International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. The document represents the ideals of the human rights movement, including (but not limited to) freedom of speech, worship, property, and equal treatment under the law.
The founder of the Human Rights Foundation is Thor Halvorssen. Having worked in human rights since 1989, some of Halvorssen’s motivation stems from personal experience in injustice. His diplomat father was falsely imprisoned and tortured in Venezuela. After human rights organizations secured his release, his mother was gunned down by members of the Venezuelan government. Then, his cousin was taken a as a political prisoner in Venezuela as well. Instead of seeking retribution, Halvorssen’s foundation is committed to a non-violent approach to diplomacy.
Thor Halvorssen’s graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in political science and history. In addition to his work in human rights, he is also an accomplished filmmaker. After college, Thor Halvorssen went on to work for human rights organizations, and founded the Oslo Freedom Forum and a children’s peace movement, On Own Feet. He has been a contributor to the New York Time, TIME, and many other publications, as well as appearing on television programs such as Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC.
HRF works on many fronts to spread liberty around the world. It participates in campaigns to free prisoners and produces films about the subject. However, it also moves to educate the global community on the issues at hand. They bring education to closed societies, set up informative events and releases educational materials. The HRF does not aim to simple get the attention of politicians: they believe in informing the general public of the problem of human rights and encourage everyone to take a stand for freedom around the world.
The powerful industrialists, the Koch brothers, were supposed to be at the head of the race to become the President of the United States in 2016; however, one of the most difficult to predict races in recent memory has left the participation of the brothers in the upcoming election in doubt. Initially, the race looked set as an election between Hilary Clinton and one of the Republican candidates, but the rise of Donald Trump has left the Republican race in a unique position with no clear front runner emerging.
The Koch brothers have been looking to make an impact on U.S. politics since the 1970s when they joined with a number of other people unhappy with the political situation in a bid to form a third party. In the 21st century, Charles Koch and his brother found themselves pushed forward when the limits on donations given to political parties were removed. Charles Koch has looked to use the success and wealth he has achieved to assist people in living a better life, which has included the chance to provide funding for educational and political institutions across the southern states of the U.S. In 2011, Charles Koch saw his wealth estimated at over $25 billion as he played an important role in the shift in focus for Koch Industries from oil refining to a range of business opportunities.
The need to fund political change was increased for the Koch brothers in the 1980s and 1990s when Democratic President Bill Clinton led a call from regulators to fight the power of Koch Industries. This battle with the Clinton family has led to Charles Koch seeking to push forward Republican candidates for the Presidency, but has yet to find one to reflect the political beliefs of he and his brother in the 2016 election cycle.
Donald Trump had sought the backing of the Koch brothers and their powerful Super PAC prior to the race beginning in January 2016. However, unsure of the real estate mogul’s business skills and his conservative beliefs the Koch brothers failed to respond in a positive way, and prompted something of a feud between the powerful business groups. A Donald Trump win in the race for the Republican nomination could lead to the Koch brothers backing out of the 2016 race completely.

Imagine having a home that is so out of order that the person considers taking a day off work, simply to clean their home. Some have a home that’s messy or out of whack because of the fact that they just moved into their home, and they haven’t been able to clean up their place the way they wanted to. Some may even be in the process of moving, and that’s why their home is a mess. There is help that a person can get if they need their home to be more organized and cleaned, and this help can come from Handy.
For those who’ve never heard of Handy before, Handy is an all in one company that has many services that are provided by professional workers, who are also trained and work directly with Handy. These workers are able to clean a home, do plumbing services, assemble furniture, help a person move, do electrician work and more. Imagine going to a store that has every service a person could ever need for a home in one place, and that’s what Handy is.

Another plus about Handy is the fact that it doesn’t take long to get a worker out to the home, compared to some other cleaning services. If a cleaning service is full, it may take days to get a person out to the home.
Handy is different in the fact that they are connected with many cleaners and other workers, so there’s never a long wait for a cleaner or any type of service person coming from Handy. It’s possible that a service person from Handy will come out the very next day, and this means fast and reliable service can be provided to the customer.
