Why Bumble Is A Good Dating Application For Women To Use

There are a lot of dating applications that women can use. Many of them however, do not focus on the needs of women. Often times, women are swamped by inappropriate messages, comments and solicitations on dating sites and apps. Women and men can also get bombarded by spam messages. Such problems are especially prevalent for female users.

One dating application called Bumble that was started by Whitney Wolfe has come up with a solution to this problem. Bumble does not let men send messages to women unless the woman has sent them a message. This eliminates the problem that most women face on dating applications. A man on Bumble can only respond to a woman if she messaged him first. This gives women the power to select who they will receive messages from and greatly cuts if not completely eliminates inappropriate and spam messages that solicit women for sex.

The dating application created by Whitney Wolfe has some very interesting quirks. For a woman to start a conversation with a man, he must like her and she must like him. This concept is similar to Tinder, where two people must both swipe each other before they can connect and chat. Connections last for 24 hours and then disappear. If a woman wants to chat with a man that she is interested in and that is interested back she must initiate a conversation in that period. Bumble currently lets a user extend one like for 24 hours for both a man and a woman to increase the chance that the other party will see this like and show interest back.

The founder of Bumble, Whitney Wolfe is also a co-founder of the dating application Tinder. Whitney Wolfe left Tinder, however due to sexual harassment at the company. For standing up to sexual harassment and being an innovator in the dating application world, Whitney Wolfe has earned much acclaim from fellow women and the tech industry.

According To Doctor Sergio Cortes Brazil Must Address The Neglected Tropical Disease Issue

Brazil has been inundated with the Zika virus. It is the first major attack of the Zika virus in Brazilian history, according to Dr. Cortes, the former Director and current medical advisor for the State Ministry of Health in Rio de Janeiro. Dr. Cortes told Extra.Globo.com that the Zika virus is just one of the Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) that impacts the poverty stricken areas as well as the wealthy areas of Brazil.

Millions of Brazilians come down with dengue and chikungunya every year, and some of those people die because there is no vaccine, and the mosquito population continues to increase. The healthcare system has advanced in terms of technology and drugs, but when it comes to controlling mosquito-borne diseases the healthcare system is still in the dark ages.

CrunchBase.com lists Dr. Cortes as the Chief Medical Officer and Executive Director of Rede D’Or São Luiz in Rio de Janeiro, but he is still very active in the development of a sensible healthcare system that addresses the mosquito-borne virus issue. Cortes wants to find a multi-faceted solution that can save the lives of thousands of people living below the poverty level. A Dr. Cortes official website post said the Zika virus has opened the eyes of the world to the ineptness in controlling mosquito-borne diseases.

The Zika virus is just one of the infectious diseases that are considered neglected tropical diseases. Billions of people around the world are infected every year NTD’s, and more than 30,000 people die every year from mosquito bites. In a tweet, Dr. Cortes encouraged nongovernmental organizations, the pharmaceutical industry, donors and the government to invest in the prevention and the control of mosquito-borne diseases. Dr. Cortes said that even though the symptoms of these neglected tropical diseases may be similar they react differently once they enter the human body.

The Zika virus has made a huge impact on the healthcare system in Brazil, but the virus has also affected the healthcare industry in every country in Latin America. Zika has demonstrated the uncanny ability to disrupt, confuse and intimidate health officials as well as the general public. Dr. Cortes believes the Zika virus will be the catalyst for change in healthcare systems in countries that didn’t take tropical diseases seriously in the past. Climate change is creating new territory for the mosquitoes that carry viruses that can be passed to humans. It not just the poor countries that are targets for mosquitoes anymore. The rich countries are being affected and infected too.

George Soros Warns of 2008 Style Crisis

A new year traditionally begins with lots of hope and optimism, but thus far 2016 is taking a different tack. Since this new year began, however, the financial markets are looking less than optimistic, to say the least. Since the start of the new year the market has dropped dramatically, with worldwide losses now at over $2.5 trillion globally. According to market guru George Soros on Bloomberg, all this indicates a possible crisis, one that could reach the proportion of the economic meltdown of 2008.

Soros is a voice market watchers listen to, as this hugely successful hedge fund owner, who’s been working since the 1950s, is worth over $27 billion, due to the success of his investments.

In a recent talk in Sri Lanka, George Soros’ observed that much of the instability we are seeing now stems from the changes occurring in China. China is going through what might be called growing pains, as it changes from a manufacturing and investment based economy into one that is geared more towards service and consumerism. This change hasn’t been easy, and the yuan is now going through major losses in value, all of which are taking a huge toll on the international market.

Since the start of 2016, the plunges in the Chinese market have forced it to close for trading on several occasions. The losses were huge and there is no solution in sight right now.

The Chinese authorities are acting swiftly to stem the losses, with the People’s Bank of China lowering interest rates dramatically and even the Communist Party pledging to let go of controls on capital by 2020. The authorities are also putting a lot of money into the economy, but thus far none of these moves has helped significantly.

Soros advice at this time is for investors to move warily in the new year to avoid major losses. This doesn’t look to be a time for major risk taking, to say the least.

She participates in activist programs including Freedom Factory Corporation and is a member of the Liberty in North Korea. This has earned her recognition from all over the world.

A Sneak Peek into Investment Banking and James Dondero

Investment banking is a complex sector of economics, and it has been in existence for a while now. An investment bank is a financial corporation that aids in raising cash for the government, people and companies. It does this through a number of ways – together or separately. One method is through the substitution of the client in the issuance of the security. The other one is through acting as the underwriter.

The United States divides securities into various categories, and each category contains its own subcategories. Debt securities are majorly comprised of elements such as bonds, banknotes and debentures. The others are common stocks that are a kind of corporate equity. Lastly, there are derivatives that are broken into more intricate economic concept and terms such as futures, swaps, forwards and options.

Each one country possesses its own distinct definition of a security, but the issuer remains the same for all countries. The issuer remains constant, and it is who the investment banks directly deal with. Securities are the traditional and most common methods for new corporations or companies to raise capital, and investment banks come in handy since they have the knowledge and experience of ensuring this does happen. Securities are far much better alternatives to bank loans, hence the best choice for governments since they often require higher debt ceiling rose so that they can issue securities. Investment banks handle such like transactions due to their vast experience and capability.

When the investment banks take up the role of being an underwriter, they basically offer insurance to the clients. By underwriting the bank or giving insurance, the bank will either acknowledge responsibility for complete or partial loss, or it will guarantee payment to the clients in case there are losses. Investment banks carry out all this through the raising of cash from several investors for whatever corporation or company they are in lieu of, as a result, investment banks would be forced to cover any losses through taking care of investors instead of getting it from the pocket of the corporation or company.

The other phase of it is that the investment banks will have to come up with whatever amount of cash the clients require if they are capable of raising the required cash from the investors it requires. The advantage of the aforementioned is the sharing of the profits of the company as well as having exclusive sales agreements. This is a very good transaction taking into account how investment bankers carefully choose their clients, and they have a good notion of what will eventually be successful.

James Dondero is quite knowledgeable in the field of investment banking. He is the co-founder and president of Highland Capital Management. He possesses over 30 years expertise in the financial institution having worked for prominent names as American Express. When he was employed at Protective Life’s GIC subsidiary, he steered the raising of $2 billion and managed it. He is highly appraised for his prowess in the investment banking sector.
