Sixteen years old is a landmark age for many teens. It is the age when many seek employment and learn skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, high rates of unemployment is recent years have made it difficult – if not impossible – for teens to get a job. One man who is trying to change this is Kevin Seawright.
Seawright is the Chief Financial Officer at the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation. The Newark CEDC has gathered together city figures and organization’s to create the Summer Youth Employment Plan in New Jersey. This year, 2016, is the first time applicants to the program will be able to apply online. The summer program seeks to give gainful employment to teens in the city. Additionally, members of the program will have access to onsite training, lectures and lessons on finances, and courses to prepare for college.
Thanks to the online application, teens are able to sign up for the program in a shorter amount of time than in years past. Seawright therefore hopes to raise the number of teens employed from 3,000 to 3,500. Shortly after opening the application, 350 students had already signed up, and Seawright anticipates the number to rise even more.
The employment program is lucky to have found partners in Santander and TD Bank. The banks hope that students will use their earnings from summer jobs to open checking and savings account and learn financial responsibility.
There are many benefits to holding a summer job during the teenage years. Newark hopes that employing teens will positively affect college admission and graduation rates. Holding a job teaches teens responsibility and people skills that are valuable lessons to have during college and in professional situations after. Seawright told LocalTalkNews that he believes in the value of the Summer Youth EMployment Plan, and hopes it will educate and empower the next generation of working professionals.

Have you ever seen those commercials for Wen hair? You know, that product that claims to be an all-in-one shampoo, conditioner and styling treatment? If that doesn’t ring a bell, what about the commercials that feature beautiful models tossing around their luscious locks?
Well, last week I had the opportunity to try out this awesome product. While at first I was a little hesitant about putting this product I’ve never used before on my fine hair, I’m so glad I did. WEN hair had a way of turning my thin hair into something so much more than that. After using Wen hair care, I was left with such voluminous hair. I honestly could not believe what happened.
For those who don’t know, Wen was originally created by Chaz Dean. Dean is a professional in the hair care industry that everyone looks up to. This man knows what he’s doing and it shows in this product.
Remember, Wen hair is perfect for those individuals that love to shower and style their hair every morning. However, if you prefer to wash your hair the night before a big event, you may want to look elsewhere for a hair product. Instead of leaving you with the look you desired, consumers tend to feel that this product makes their hair look oily.
Personally, I could not be any happier with my decision to use Wen. For so long, I have been ashamed of my fine and unmanageable hair. Now, I don’t have to be. I can be truly proud of the way my locks look.

Argentina sits below Brazil on the map. Brazil has been an international superstar for the five of the last seven years, but the Brazilian star has lost some of its glow thanks to a three-year-long recession. The recession is turning the Brazilian economy into a shadow of its former self. Argentina, on the other hand, has been struggling with high debt, rampant unemployment, and a government that seem to know what it was doing, but didn’t. Argentina took a back seat on the global financial marketplace, and the country wants a front seat now.
James Dondero, the CEO of Highland Capital Management, based in Dallas, has been investing in assets that appear to worthless for years. Dondero got his feet wet in the investment industry when he worked for American Express. When fellow investor, Mark Okada talked to Dondero about opening their own company in 1992, Dondero jumped at the chance. That partnership produced Highland Capital Management. Highland Capital now manages more than $19 billion in assets all over the world.
Argentina has been on Dondero’s radar for several years. He knew the country was a prime investment even though debt continued to strangle the country. Dondero decided to buy some of that debt in 2014. James didn’t hesitate when he got the chance to buy $4 billion in Argentine debt, according to an article published by Bloomberg.com. When Highland Capital bought that debt Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner was president, but Dondero had a feeling that even though she didn’t have what it takes to get Argentina back on track financially, her opponent Mauricio Macri did.
One of the first things Macri did when he was elected was to start a program that included selling bonds filled with Argentinian debt. That was good news for Dondero. His $4 billion investment in Argentinian debt was already producing a 20 percent return, so buying a large chunk of future Argentinian bonds made a lot of sense. Macri has reversed some of the policies the former president enacted that kept Argentina down on the world stage. Macri also has the international connections to turn the country around, according to Jim Dondero. Dondero told Bloomberg.com that a turnaround is already happening.
Highland Capital Management plans to start a fund that invests in Argentinian debt and equity. Other investment companies will do the same thing, according to Dondero. Argentina is a good risk, and the big investment firms and hedge funds don’t overlook good risks.
Picking the one country that is going to be perfect to invest in is hard unless investors know someone as good as Martin Lustgarten. Mr. Lustgarten has been making sure that people are making money in countries outside the US for a long time, and he knows that there are some people who will not know where to start.
The countries that people pick have a lot of different attributes that will range from their politics to their current economic situation. Some of the people that are investing like they want to cover a lot of countries at once, but Mr. Lustgarten thinks that people should start with just one country when they start their investing. All the investors who have great success will know which countries are more beneficial to them, and that investors who pick the right countries can park their money there for a long time.
There are some other people who think that they need to get better results by making sure that they are investing in something specific in just one country.
There are even more people who have no idea at all what they are going to do to get the results that they want, and it makes more sense for people to ask Mr. Lustgarten what he thinks they should do. He does a lot of advising, and he makes sure that he will give people the best advice possible when he talks to them. Nothing can be very effective unless investors get the right advice, and Mr. Lustgarten is the perfect person to go to for advice. He is also someone who knows that he is going to make the right choices more often than not.
The simplicity of his own investing system is such that people will be able to get the results that they want, and they will be able to live on profits that come from international investments or commodities. Lustgarten also is involved with a Gofundme campaign to help animals.
FreedomPop is a mobile virtual network that runs on Sprint’s network. As of recently they have took money gathered by venture capitalists and are looking to further expand. FreedomPop’s plans to expand could have not came at a better time. The biggest company in the industry, Verizon, recently was fined $1.4 million dollars for planting targeted ads within customer’s phone without their consent. This fault by Verizon will hopefully allow FreedomPop to gain some of those customers lost by Verizon due to the bold move of planting targeted ads in their phones.
The CEO and co-founder of FreedomPop, Stephen Stokols was recently interviewed by RCR Wireless. In the interview he discussed FreedomPop’s business model and just how they plan to compete with top companies like Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T. FreedomPop allows it’s customers to have free service based on it’s business model. How they actually make money is by selling virtual numbers, and customer’s paying to roll over their unused data from the previous month. They make their money also by selling extra data when needed. This unique business model allows FreedomPop to pass on their wholesale prices of data to the customer therefore creating value for the customer. With this business model FreedomPop is sure to gain more venture funding and just might be able to compete with top tier companies domestically and also internationally.
A question that most women with fine hair find them asking – will X product work for my hair? In a week-long experiment, Emily McClure tested out popular haircare brand WEN hair to see if the product’s cleansing conditioner would really work on fine hair.

The Koch brothers especially Charles Koch and David Koch have not been in the media and political limelight for a long time; since back in the 1980s when David vied for a political position but lost. Their open agenda has now been analyzed to coming up with myths about their political side of life. The Koch especially Charles Koch were noticed not long ago because of funding political campaigns for the Republican supporters with huge sums of money. This was an aspect that has been facing lots of criticism from the Democrats especially Bernie Sanders, who does not like the fact that politics is being materialized financially. Charles Koch has since 2010 been attending television interviews and writing his op-eds in the Washington post. His recent opinion was in support of a Democrat, who is against the inequality in America.
Myths about the Koch brothers have been made; these myths are technically not all right because of the anonymity of the Koch brothers for a long time. For example, the myth that the Koch brothers are a recent network formed in reaction to the Obama’s presidency. The Koch brothers have for a long time been trying to come up with reformations of the American politics since 1973. They have been giving to minority political parties but expanded to funding lobby groups who push for policies they see as right and preferable. In 2003 during the era of Bush, the Koch were in support of Medicare care policies after they saw the activities of Bush and decided to get involved in politics.
The Koch brothers support policies regarding environmental sustainability hence the myth that they push for policies favoring their business with oil since they are a major distributor of oil products. Unfortunately, the truth behind their agenda is to reduce taxes, loosen government imposed rules and regulations that may hinder the activities of the unions of workers. Koch has over time seen the burden behind the common person and middle incomes to the imposed policies by politicians and top business persons.
Charles Koch is the chairperson, chief executive officer, and a board member of the Koch Industries one of the largest corporations in America. He has overtime advocated and funded groups supporting environmental policies that are favoring environmental sustainability. The system he says should favor rehabilitation of the incarcerated back to the society by not limiting their opportunities.
