Richard Blair has been helping clients plan for retirement since 1994. Since he comes from a family of educators and is married to an educator, he believes that education lies at the heart of having a successful retirement plan. He says that too often when people seek out the services of an investment consultant, the consultant is only focused on what they can make in commissions off the client. Instead, he helps clients achieve a holistic approach to retirement because retirement looks different for each individual.
Some people choose to spend their retirement traveling to exotic locations like the Arashimaya Bamboo Forest in Japan or Anghor in Cambodia while others are content to putter around in the backyard at their own paid for home. Some willingly cannot picture a day where they will not at least earn a little bit while others choose to willingly never work another day in their lives. Understanding what a person thinks they want to do during retirement is the first important step in holistic retirement planning.
The next step is to consider all the assets that a person has to help fund their retirement. Just a few of the variables that Richard Blair may consider are estate planning, cash flow statements, net worth statements, savings, asset allocation statements, insurance and the amount of social security and pensions the person expects to receive.
Then, Richard takes time to consider how a person’s dream of retirement compares to their projected available wealth. If the person is a few years from retirement, then he identifies opportunities for building wealth by using conservative investment strategies such as 401ks and IRAs. If a person is close to retirement, then Richard can help a person decide when exactly to retire and help them plan for long-term care if needed. Finally, if the person is already in retirement, Richard can help the individual with estate planning.
Regardless of a person’s age, it is important to start planning for retirement with the right wealth manager. Too many managers simply try to sell the products that will make them the most commissions. Instead, sit down with Richard Blair and let him show you the holistic retirement wealth management approach.

Kyle Bass, the founder of Hayman Capital Management had a lot to say about China recently. Bass and his Dallas-based hedge fund is betting millions that the Chinese currency is going to depreciate against the dollar, and if Bass is right, he will make millions on that bet. But Bass hasn’t had the best track record recently. The Capital Management hedge fund is not performing up to expectations, and Bass recent predictions haven’t materialized. But he may be right about China. Other major hedge funds are making the same bet against the Chinese yuan, and the Chinese government is not happy about those bets.
China’s economy has hit a wall. The manufacturing sector is in a recession, and it is pulling the rest of the country down with it. China wants to convert to a consumer-driven economy, but the government can’t do it fast enough to prevent a major recession that will send economic shock waves around the world. Bass doesn’t think the United States will feel the impact of the Chinese recession, but economists say he’s wrong. Rather than a 40 to 50 percent chance of a recession hitting the U.S. economy, a 100 percent chance is the forecast that economists are predicting.
China has already sent some countries into recession mode, and the economy in Europe is getting worse every day. Bass thinks Europe will collapse before the United States, and he’s betting that will happen as well. But Bass isn’t the same guy that predicted the 2008 financial meltdown. Kyle made more than $590 million when he bet the market was going to collapse. He enjoyed genius status for that bet, but his genius status has been tarnished ever since then.
When Bass supported General Motors during the airbag and power steering crisis, he did it to protect his huge investment in General Motors, and that turned popular opinion against Bass. When Bass supported Argentina’s president Christina Fernandez de Kirchner when she defaulted on her debts in 2014, investors like Paul Singer who refused to settle with Argentina were outraged by his public comments.
Bass was interviewed by BusinessInsider.com recently, and he said his drug coalition was going to help lower the cost of prescription drugs. But the impetus for that coalition is more about Bass making money shorting drug company stocks than helping people get affordable drugs. Mr. Bass isn’t the investment genius he was eight years ago, but people are still listening to him. Despite articles like Kyle Bass The Frantic Investments of a Desperate Gambler exposing the reality of his life.
In a recent article in CNBC on http://www.nytimes.com/topic/person/george-soros, George Soros warned of the possible destruction of the European Union. He felt that the immigrant crisis has reached a tipping point throughout Europe, especially in the border countries of Turkey and Greece. Read the entire article here: Your text to link…
George Soros is a man who knows the immigration problems first-hand; born in Hungary, George Soros’ country was occupied by German forces during the early stages of the Second World War. Then the Russian Communist forces took control of the country from Germany as Allied Forces began to take control of the European theater. George Soros as a boy was fortunate to be able to migrate from Hungary to Great Britain.
Soros knows of Fascist, Communist and Constitutional Monarchist forms of governments. He completed his knowledge of different governments on http://www.biography.com/people/george-soros-20926527 by moving to the United States of America. It was here that he began his investing career, which has lead to his enormous success and the start of his philanthropy.
Before social reforms were implemented in America, England, and Europe, immigrants were looked upon as a necessary ingredient in a country’s economic success. The immigrants would work, happily, at low paying jobs and their efforts would add force to a growing, productive economy. Now social programs benefitting the poor and indigent are strained to the breaking point whenever immigrants flock to a foreign country’s shore.
George Soros’s solution is the influx of the equivalent of $34 billion every year to handle the immigrant crisis. He goes on to say that Europe must use its AAA ratings to borrow sufficient monies to manage the crisis. The additional monies would be used to absorb the immigrants into the European economy.
George Soros also states that the unity of all the countries of the European Union is necessary and voluntary. Without immediate and sufficient aid this crisis could lead to violence and the destabilization of countries in Europe.
Soros formed his Open Society Foundation when he had made his fortune and since its founding, he has written and lectured on economic problems around the globe. His insight and intelligence are needed by the world at this juncture in the immigrant crisis.

The Solo Capital business started because Sanjay Shah had no choice, but now he is running one of the best business empires in the world with one of the best charities. He is so adept at doing this work that he wanted to share his wisdom with other people. He talked to a magazine about what it would be like to start a new business, and he had some advice for the people who were reading.
He starts off by telling these people that they need more money than they think to start a business. He knows that these people have a budget, but he is wondering if they know how much extra money they will need. A lot of people lowball this number because they think it will not be that high, but it can be pretty high just to get the business going.
The people that are trying to make sure that they have good businesses will need to keep putting money into those businesses until they get fun. That could take some time, but it is worth the wait if people will just wait for a while. Those same people can start charities to raise money for something that they believe in. That is something that they can do with a small foundation, or they can start something huge like Autism Rocks.
Sanjay Shah loves music and helping kids, so he put the two together into a charity that is raising millions a year to help kids with autism. He had to use cash to start the charity, and it needs money so that it can put on all its concerts. Everyone who sees the charity do good work does not realize how much money goes into each concert. That also means that these people do not know that every dollar helps. Autism Rocks raises money all over the world to make sure their concerts go well, and they continue to do so so that they can have more concerts. Sanjay Shah wants all his readers to remember how much money it will take to get their big idea going.
Michael Zomber is a man of passion. He has a passion that burns deep within his being to preserve and protect the past for all who come into the future.

His works do not just include books on Japanese history, but also on the rich history and substance of the American Continent.

Each piece is based on extensive research about not only the era they take place in, but also about the people that the work centers on. Zomber further goes into depth in explaining and detailing the weapons and things in the person’s life and times.
Zomber has had to work through his fair share of trials also. There was a time when he was implicated in wrong doing surrounding the sale of some antique guns. He was exonerated as the situation was a total miscommunication of the parties involved. Despite these accusations Zomber has continued to do his work and offer more historical insight into the growth and development of America.
Michael Zomber has given great knowledge and insight into the history and fiber of both America and Japan. He has won a number of different honors for his work in both the written and the film formats.

There’s a great video where Michael breaks down Bushido, and what it meant to the ancient Samurai.
Coriant is a telecommunications firm under the telecom industry. It is held independently and privately. The independence arose from its connection with Nokia Siemens Networks both of which belonged to the mother company called Marlin Equity Partners. It uses borrowed technology from Tellabs, Sycamore Networks and also from Siemens Optical Networks. There has been a lot of merging going on between Coriant and other firms including the aforementioned; Tellabs, Sycamore Networks and with Siemens Optical Networks from which it borrows technology as mentioned earlier on.

Shaygan Kheradpir was formally chief Executive Officer of Jupiter Networks Inc. Prior to joining Coriant as now new boss, he was working closely with the senior management team of the same company in the docket of Operating Executive to Marlin Equity Partners. He is a man of reputation, which precedes his name as well. He has had much recognition in the technology, financial services and the telecom world industries. Kheradpir’s strategic insights and proper guidance on focused operational executions are all phenomenon, something that I would say is rather plausible- worthy of approval and acceptance.

Organizations that help take care of homeless animals, and also do trap-neuter-release, and otherwise care for pets who have no one else to care for them, are indeed doing very good work. Often times, however, they experience budgetary shortfalls and private citizens are needed to help bridge the gap. New York City attorney Ross Abelow has done just that by setting up a GoFundMe page to raise $5000 to benefit animal shelters in the city. There have been record low temperatures in New York City this year, so the need is that much greater.
Ross Abelow started this campaign to raise funds for medical care, vaccines, blankets, and food for shelters. With the record low temperatures, shelters are packed and they are suffering from a shortage of space, and a shortage of supplies. Without additional funds, shelters must turn animals away, and they are then left out in the cold. Those who care about the welfare of animals can support Mr. Abelow’s efforts by donating at https://www.gofundme.com/ross-abelow-pets.
Mr. Abelow joins the ranks of many in New York City who are great philanthropists when it comes to the welfare of animals. In fact, the Mayor of New York has an Alliance For New York City’s Animals. The Alliance was established in 2003, and has been working to organize care for animals in New York City ever since. Ross Abelow is joining the ranks of so many who are concerned for the welfare of animals at a time when the need could not be greater.
Ross Abelow is an attorney who currently lives and works in New York City. A graduate of New York University, Mr. Abelow is committed to making New York a better place to live. A lifelong resident of this city, he is very familiar with what the needs of the city are. He is also a graduate of Brooklyn College of Law. Currently he specializes in matrimonial, commercial, family and litigation law. He has been licensed to practice law in New York City for over 20 years.
A longtime proponent of animal welfare, Ricky Gervais once said something to the effect of “in the end we will be judged by how we treated our animals.” If this is true, Ross Abelow is in good stead.
