Kyle Bass has made some strange decisions, but some of them have paid off, and it’s understandable why he has adopted underhanded angles in a lot of his dealings. The fact is, it’s easy to point a gun at someone and demand money. Is it ethical or legal? No. But the individual who can transcend ethics through obfuscation can get away with things that are legal, but shouldn’t be. Consider CAD, the Coalition for Affordable Drugs. This is a pseudo-humanitarian organization run by Kyle Bass. This was first revealed by UsefulStooges in their article, Kyle Bass the Frantic Investments of a Desperate Gambler.
Its ostensible purpose is to help the infirm by lowering the cost of drugs. Its real purpose is to lower big-ticket pharmaceuticals’ stock value so Bass can short-sell his holdings when CAD’s work is done and make millions. See, CAD uses petitions, lawsuits, public sympathy and any means necessary to force the stock drops Bass is aiming for. It’s such an obvious scheme even Congress has looked into ways Bass may be shut down; and that in a bipartisan way. As yet, nothing can be done, as he isn’t technically breaking the law. But when big ticket pharmaceutical companies lose millions of profit due to a forced price drop, the net result is restriction of funding to departments in development. When all is said and done, the sick lose more than had they not petitioned for price drops, as future medical breakthroughs are lost.
With this in mind, now consider Bass’ statements about China. Kyle has said that there is a forty to fifty percent chance the Chinese debt bubble will burst by the end of 2016, lowering the US economy by 20%. He’s pointed to their freezing 3 trillion dollar bond market as evidence. As yet, this isn’t directly indicative–though it seems compelling. Bass has been preaching Chinese economic declination and subsequent currency devaluation since around the end of the fourth quarter in 2015. Now it’s August, and as yet his predictions have yet to bear fruit. Is he trying to manipulate investors into curtailing their investments to secure his own? That seems to be the case, but it’s hard to know. One thing is sure: Bass has some kind of ulterior motive.

When markets open, the trading floor is usually busy. However, when they close, Chopper Trading becomes a different room. The company’s 150 employees lift weights and wind down by playing poker and table tennis at the 3,000-square-foot space. After work, the employees spend their time together by going out or using the company’s season tickets to attend Blackhawks, Sox, Cubs and Bulls games.
The CEO of Chopper Trading, Raj Fernando, asserts that the nature of the company’s business is stressful. To this end, he ensures that the working atmosphere is favorable in order to counter the effects of stress and enable employees to get along. Fernando’s hiring process is distinct from that of his competitors. Most of his competitors enroll 30 potential candidates in their training program, only to hire 3 employees and reject the 27. Raj’s hiring process is lengthy and more engrossing. His objective is to recruit employees that will someday retire from the company. When founding Chopper Trading in 2002, he came up with one rule for recruiting employees. Raj said that he would not focus on the money that one would help the company make. He continued to contend that if an employee makes everyone miserable, he or she would be rejected. Raj enrolled at Beloit College where he pursued a degree in economics and history. He is also an alumnus of the University College London. Between 1991 and 2001, he worked for the Chicago Mercantile Exchange by starting as a volunteer. Raj worked his way up the corporate ladder at the company and later, at the Chicago Board of Trade.

Over the years, he has addressed different audiences on various forums. In 2015, DRW Trading Group purchased Chopper Trading. DRW is a trading firm based in Chicago. This year, Fernando established a start-up internet company, Scoutahead. This corporation was designed to augment professional and corporate growth and productivity in the form of advanced and secure communication systems.

I was looking for a new lipstick the other day to match this really bright pink dress that I have. I was having the most difficult time. I checked the local drug stores, super markets, and even dollar stores for this shade. I had given up until I did a google search for “brightest lip stick.” It showed me a bunch of results and I scrolled down to one company called Lime Crime. I clicked on the link and looked around. It really was the brightest make up I have seen. After more scrolling, I found my dream shade. It is a lip stick that truly stands out from the rest.
I was thrilled. It went with my dress perfectly. The packaging was attractive and caught my eye right away. They sent it super fast to me. I loved the fact it is also cruelty free. The problem sometimes with make up is that it doesn’t look the same on you as it does on the box. I did not have that issue with the Lime Crime lipstick that I purchased.
I got a color called Pink Velvet. It came in a liquid tube. I put it on and within a few minutes, it had turned into a bright matte color. I looked in the mirror and couldn’t believe how it looked on me. Bright lipstick sometimes looks tacky if it is not high quality. This lipstick was worth the $16.00 I paid for it.
I had ordered two more products to qualify for the free shipping, and loved those just as much. I got the lipstick featured on the front page called Teddy Bear and one called Rave. They were both exactly as described. I am so happy with my purchase, and will be trying more colors soon. Dolls Kill is where I usually buy Lime Crime, but there are stores on Amazon too.
