Weddings have gone through major revolutions throughout history, and the past fifteen years are no exception. As reported by Yahoo! recent years have brought about a host of new technologies that make the process of planning and executing a wedding easier than ever.

The first breakthrough has been with gift registries. Instead of scanning items in store and dealing with the hassle of duplicate gifts, slow websites, or settling for what is on shelf at the moment, The Knot Registry and MyRegistry consolidates lists from different stores into one place, allowing users to share the items through a website or a mobile app. Additionally, Honeyfund is a new kind of registry that allows guests to purchase trips and experience for the newlyweds. While these are new solutions, they are expected to really take off in the future.

One website that can act as a gift registry or can be used on a daily basis is Slyce. Slyce allows users to capture a picture of an item in real life or in a magazine that they would like. Slyce then is able to find where the item is available (brick and mortar Orr online store), send coupon codes, and let the searcher make a purchase right then an there. Sometimes with registries, the couple cannot find exactly what they are looking for in a specific store. Slyce reverses the process: the couple finds the item, and Slyce provides all the details.

Slyce was founded in 2012, with headquarters in Toronto. In subsequent years, Slyce has partnered with some of the largest retailers in the United States, including Nieman Marcus. Nieman Marcus now integrates Slyce into its mobile app, allowing users to scan through ever Nieman Marcus store quickly to find what they want based on color, style, price, etc. It’s exponential growth has allowed Slyce to acquire other app and technology companies, keeping its software at the forefront of the online search industry.

Along the same lines, apps and online retailers now have special sites for brides, grooms, and the wedding party to rent dresses. Cheaper and easier, the online process also cuts down on the time and energy spent gathering friends from across the country, visiting multiple stores, and inevitable disagreeing with one of more people. And when the wedding is over, the bride can return or sell the dress again.

The concept of a wedding website is relatively new in an of itself, but the innovations made to creating one are another wave of improvements quickly growing in popularity. Technology now allows couples to create online photo albums, matching invitations, and personalized apps that guests can download for all the latest information on the event.

Evidently, technology has come to be an integral part of society. From weddings to birthdays, from shopping to selling gifts and clothes, the latest technology is working to revolutionize every aspect of life.

During the election campaign period, the activities of contenders and their close cronies are usually closely followed and documented by the media and other interest groups like Bloomberg. Any negative publicity could spell doom to the candidate and his or her whole set-up. During the ongoing US presidential party primaries, Ohio Governor John Kasich who is a Republican hopeful received a donation from an unlikely quarter; Forbes billionaire George Soros.
The donation was made through two of George Soros’s trusted fund managers, Scott Bessent and Stanley Druckenmiller. It amounted to 448,375 US dollars, which is meant for the candidate’s “soft money” funds. This is can be proved by Federal Elections Commission reports.

Why the Donation Raises Eyebrows

Many analysts are speculating that there is a lot more in store than what meets the eye. Mr. Soros has spent large sums of money forming and backing pro-Democratic groups. He also supports libertarian organizations such as MoveOn.org and ACORN and therefore, his move has caused quite a storm. The organizations often support anti-Republican policies, a party to which Kasich belongs.

In addition, Soros recently made another grant amounting to 8 million dollars to Kasich’s likely opponent Hillary Clinton’s campaign kitty. Donating to Kasich has made analysts ask questions about who he really supports. He is also opposed to Republican candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, who have made insistent calls about tightening of border posts, a move likely to lock out immigrants.

The Ohio Governor’s reasonable and seemingly non-partisan stance on issues has clearly won him support from donors across the political divide. However, most people think it is a way of stopping Trump.

A brief history of George Soros

Soros made his money through wealth fund management and is currently ranked among the richest people in the world. Born in Hungary in 1931, he fled the country when the Nazi forces occupied it, moving to the United Kingdom and later to America. He is a citizen of both Hungary and the USA. Soros worked in various institutions in London after completing his studies at the London School of Economics. He embarked on his career at Singer and Friedlander, a commercial bank in 1954, where he worked as a clerk.

George Soros moved to New York in 1956, where he worked as an arbitrate dealer for F.M Mayer. His role was advising the firm on European stocks. He also worked at Wertheim and Co. before branching out to found Soros Fund Management in 1970. He has led the firm through a period of great accomplishment for over four decades, and still remains its chairman.

Away from business, Soros’s has extensive political connections globally. He supports the Democratic Party’s policies. He founded and chairs the Open Society, which acts as a springboard for the promotion of democracy. He is a dedicated humanitarian and has given more than 11 billion dollars for philanthropic activities during his life. He has five children from his past marriages, all of whom have made great milestones in their careers.

Billionaire George Soros has recently reported by The New York Times to gave a huge sum of money with other fellow liberal donors for securing the Latino vote in the coming 2016 elections. Soros is a wise businessman and analyst who is very in tune with the economic and political landscape in America. He is currently working with other liberal individuals who want to help get Latino voters to the polls.

Starting in 2015 Soros has been active for helping democratic candidates to elected to the White House. He recently gave Hillary Clinton a $6 million donation to support her campaign and now he is giving to the Immigration Voters Win Super PAC. This particular political action committee has been created to keep Republican runner Donald Trump out of office.

The Immigration Voters Win Super PAC will be targeting the Latino population to sign up all voting age residents. This organization will especially focus on voters between the ages of 18 to 25. Signing up Latino-American voters is crucial to keeping Trump out of the White House. The fact is that Latinos are now a huge political force in the U.S. and democrats want to use their power to help win the election.

Soros is not just going after the Latin-American population for the wrong reason. He and other super PAC supporters really do believe that it is time to use this particular segment of the population to help improve the conditions of Latinos and immigrants entering the country. Soros also knows that when the Latino population is enfranchised they can help to make the country better for all people and not just their own communities.

The Immigration Voters Win Super PAC is going to appeal to Latino voters by sending out information and going door to door to get people registered. Latino voters typically stand behind Democratic candidates and Soros is hoping that they will go and vote for Hillary Clinton. More information about Soros’s donation and the activities of the Immigration Voters Win Super PAC can be viewed in the New York Times Article article, Soros and Other Liberal Donors to Fund Bid to Spur Latino Voters.

Wikipedia’s website has become the premier place to be on the internet. By having a page on the site, individuals or businesses get a massive amount of free advertising and reviews. The only major downside is the editing that biased viewers do to pages. On Wikipedia, anyone can update a Wiki page. It seems like a good thing at first because if there are any misspellings, they can be easily fixed. Unfortunately though, that isn’t all viewers change on the pages. There have been many cases of vandalism and unfair editing that is quite upsetting. 

A recent case of this hit the news lines when editing was done to listings of women authors. Every Wikipedia page is classified in to a category. One of the categories is called “American Novelists”. Some Wikipedia viewers changed the list to remove women from it. They were separated out in to a subcategory called “American Women Novelists”. Only male novelists were left in the original category. There was no separated subcategory created for men, just the women. One of the women who happened to be on the list came across the editing and noticed that she had been removed as well. She contacted other female Wikipedia writers to create Wiki pages, and soon, there were many who were quite furious in regards to the blatant example of sexism.

A Wikipedia writing service called “Get Your Wiki” can help fix the changes though. Many people hire Wiki experts through them to look out for their pages in case something like this happens. Wikipedia has rules against biased viewpoints being reflected in editing or articles that are written, so the Wiki writers for hire would be entirely within their rights to change the editing so that it reflects their accurate stance in literature. Get Your Wiki follows all Wikipedia requirements and will only do editing that falls in to their guidelines.

As the product of mergers between Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) Optical Networks, Tellabs, and Sycamore Networks, Coriant is a force to be reckoned with in the telecommunications industry. Formed in 2013 and boasting over 35 years of experience from its parent companies, Coriant serves leading network operators in over 100 countries. With all this going for it, it became to be an instantaneous mainstay of backbone networks across the globe. And now, with the appointment of its new CEO and Chairman, Shaygan Kheradpir, it is poised to innovate and blaze trails like it never has before.

Kheradpir has been working in the field of telecommunications since 1987, after receiving a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Cornell University. As Chief Information Officer at GTE Corporation, the Wall Street Journal reported that he “earn[ed] respect for delivering new products on schedule,” and he delivered these kinds of results consistently throughout his career.

Since the turn of the century, he has held executive positions at Verizon, Barclays and Juniper. At Verizon, he became known for his ability to simultaneously cut costs and improve upon technology and processes. At Barclays and Juniper, he demonstrated this same ability, playing a key role in contributing to successful restructuring efforts. His appointment to the Coriant team this past September is a clear indication that they are preparing for something big.
Optical communications technology is an ever-evolving field, and even large the largest and most stable companies must continually develop new and improved processes, hardware and software if they are to remain in their positions. Thus, according to Coriant’s website, “The Coriant portfolio of SDN-enabled, edge-to-core transport solutions enables network operators to reduce operational complexity, improve utilization of multi-layer network resources, and create new revenue-generating services optimized for the evolving demands of business and consumer applications, including video, mobile, and cloud.” With such a large arsenal at their disposal, it would seem they are intent on becoming synonymous with expertise and ubiquitous throughout the industry. Since September, and especially since the beginning of 2016, their press releases have become distinctly more frequent as they have added numerous major clients and unveiled new hardware and software solutions. Under the leadership of Shaygan Kheradpir, Coriant is the telecom company to watch this year.

Many like to follow fashion trends and rules but at times, those rules tie ladies to things they would not want to, at times make them leave garments they would love to see themselves on. Fashion rules over time have taken away women’s happiness and the ability to decide what to do to avoid breaking them. However Doe Deere, a famous fashion icon, advises that rules are there to be broken. That fashion is about whatever makes a person happy. Those clothes are there to be enjoyed not to be saved for special occasions because at times those special occasions take too long to happen. It is wise not to save clothes for special occasions while one can enjoy it at a regular time. Like that one outfit, a person looks good on they should wear it when they are dying to.

Fashion rules give distinct clothes for even people’s age something that doe does not agree on it, one can wear garments at any age what matters is not the color nor the pattern but our preference and conscience. Bright colors too look great with mixed patterns and what distinguishes is not the fashion rule but what garment one is free in and dying to wear. Doe’s success cannot be ignored because it is breaking of fashion rules that brought her into founding her own cosmetics company known as Lime Crime Cosmetics. Since she was 10 years old, she loved to mix different makeups, and she found from it the great business. Doe has inspired young women from being kept in the closet by rules to standing for themselves and running businesses.

Does favorite color is lime green, which is the name for her store which she founded through Amazon before it became a company in 2008. Lime crime is a company that deals with intensely pigmented, colorful, bold and animal friend cosmetics. Doe goes with the fact that beauty is not about being natural or best looks, but it is what one feels right in at that moment. Cosmetics from Lime Crime have done more to many, women especially they have brought back freedom, self-expression and the ability to hide imperfections. Doe is a great mentor to women because she started small on her own and came to succeed through her ambition. She also worked magic through the internet and managed to sell her products even more. Doe Deere has been to public expos like PHAME expo and Vegas Nay’s Stardust Tour.

The chairman of Soros Fund Management LLC, George Soros was born in 1930 in Budapest shortly before the beginning of world war 2. He grew in the midst of a war-torn country and extreme oppression of the people by the Nazi government. After the war, his country Hungary was taken over by a pro-Nazi communist government and things did not get better for them as citizens. There was widespread suffering and high mortality rates especially from internal conflicts, diseases, and starvation. Luckily for him, in 1947, he managed to escape to Britain, where he completed his education. After he was done with school, die migrated to the United States to start his career in business which turned out to be very successful.

Due to his experiences in Hungary during and after the cold war George Soros was inspired to always try and make a change in the political arena. He believes that people deserve a good leader who cares about them. Since he has now made a fortune out of his business career, he uses his money to support good political courses. He donates funds to support campaigns of leaders he believes are good and will bring a good change to the world. For a long time, George Soros has been donating to fund political campaigns, but his breakthrough came in 2004.

In 2004, John Kerry was a presidential aspirant who stood up in a race to White House against George W. Bush. Bush was running for a second term as the president of the United States. During this campaign period, George Soros donated over $20 million to support John Kerry’s campaigns. He also supported other minority groups that were fighting against President Bushs’ reelection. In 2008, he took a break and did not support any candidate. When it came to 2012, George Soros showed signs of a major comeback with a donation of $1million to support President Obama’s Reelection Campaign.
This is 2016, and it is another election period in the American history. 2015 was the year of rewriting history books for George Soros. In this year’s election, Soros has chosen to support Hillary Clinton, who is a Democrat party president aspirant. At the beginning of 2015, George Soros donated a total of $2 million to groups that support Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The money was shared in the ratio of 1:1 between Priorities USA and American Bridge 21st Century.

In December 2015, George Soros donated a whopping $6million to Hillary Clinton’s super PAC, Priorities USA Action to help fund their campaigns. This figure is the biggest yet in this campaign period with the second best standing at around $5 million. From Soros history in 2004, he is expected to donate more money and beat his then total donations. But even as it currently stands, George Soros is the biggest political funder in the history of American politics.
