George Soros Unveils His Vision For The EU’s Asylum Policies

Multi billionaire and political bellwether George Soros and Open Society founder has never been a man to keep silent about his opinions. For a very long time he has been extremely outspoken about a wide range of political topics but nfew more so than the recent immigrant crisis. In a recent article in Market Watch George Soros laid out his fairly extensive plan for the EU’s immigration policies.
First and foremost, George Soros believes that the European Union absolutely must accept a minimum of no less than one million refugees every year for as long as is possible. Naturally, this will be nearly impossible to do properly without a proper, planned budget which is adequately shared. Next the EU must allocate fifteen thousand euros to (which equals sixteen thousand eight hundred US dollars) for every refuge seeker. This funding will be used primarily to fund necessary and additional housing, doctor care as well as education. Soros also believes that the EU member states should allow the asylum seekers to be able to choose where they are going to be placed, geographically to better facilitate societal integration.

Secondly, Soros says on NY Books that the EU must take the lead and spear head a large scale funding campaign for the refugees currently residing in countries such as Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey. Even though there are already similar funding campaigns in place these efforts have not yet been able to raise even a fraction of the total money necessary for the facilitation of the refugees basic well being. According to Soros, his country funding initiative would cost around five thousand euros per refugee. Thus total support would be around eight to ten billion euros with EU allies such as the US making up the rest of the balance.

Thirdly, the EU must begin, as soon as possible, to synthesize and consolidate the disparate and patchwork refuge systems which currently are counted as 28 in number with the goal of creating one centralized asylum agency which would oversee all refugees. Fourthly, the EU should take decisive and extensive action to plot out and create a single, optimal pathway for refugees traveling between Greece and Italy as well as other surrounding regions to mitigate the dangers posed by the treacherous Mediterranean sea passage by allowing asylum seekers a better route. Not only would this calm panic from human rights activists and asylum seekers alike, it would also save countless innocent lives.

Lastly according to Bloomberg Business, the EU must stimulate and mobilize their private financial superpowers to sponsor the effort as it would both foster general goodwill and lessen the financial burden carried by the member states.

Doe Deere’s Fashion Innovations

Fashion comes and fashion goes, and there always seems to be plenty of experts around who love telling women what they can and can’t do. While women historically have been somewhat “enslaved” by the dictates of the fashion rulers from New York and Los Angeles, today’s more liberated women know that it’s ok to break the rules and even make up a few of their own.

One of the women who knows how to break the rules is Lime Crime Cosmetics CEO Doe Deere. Deere has made a name for herself and her company by breaking the rules in ways that are colorful, fashionable and fun.

Here’s a few of the rules Deere loves to play around with.

1.Don’t Use Bold Colors on The Eyes and The Lips.

This is a rule Deere loves to break, as her Lime Crime line has so many incredible colors for both the eyes and the lips, it’s a shame not to take advantage of them. Deere’s approach is to finesse the eye and lip color so they coordinate with each other beautifully. She also like to use a soft palette on the rest of the face to draw attention more fully to those gorgeously made up eyes and lips.

2. Don’t Wear Anything But Neutrals With Unnaturally Colored Hair.

Some fashion experts warn against wearing colors if your hair is dyed purple or pink, but Deere feels it’s fine to play up bold hair color by wearing clothes that work with the colors. Shades of purple, pink and brown can look great with pink hair, so why just stay with black and white?

3. Don’t Ever Wear Socks With Sandals.

Really? This is one rule Deere loves to break. She goes all out to choose socks that work fabulously with her outfit, and that look fabulous peeking out from her sandals. If you can rock this look, it can work like a charm to play up a cute dress or skirt ensemble.

4. Don’t Wear More Than One Pattern.

This is a rule that was always set in stone, but in our modern “break the rules” era, it’s one that can be played around with to great effect. Deere points out that the key is to find a coordinating theme in patterns, like colors or shapes, and work with them to create a great look.

These days, fashion can come from all kinds of looks. As long as a woman knows what works for her, and she is able to focus on tying several elements together effectively, she should know it’s okay to make her own rules. Just ask Doe Deere!

Dynamic innovations in dog food driving demand

 

The dog food market may not seem like a dynamic field that has a lot of money invested in new technologies but there have been significant investments in new dog foods mainly to fill the demand for higher quality products for dogs. People are increasingly concerned with the health and well-being of their dogs and are spending more money to make sure that they receive the adequate food and nutrition that is available in higher quality foods.

Companies are investing in developing both higher quality and unique products that are attempting to capture the customers’ eye and earn a share of this growing market. As higher quality dog food costs more both for customers and to produce, the market share of these products have increased significantly and have led to record increases in sales, increasing by almost 45% in gross revenue in just the past six years.

Some of these product offerings are quite unique. Freshpet, which is a fledgling company that has just reached $100 million in annual sales and has yet to earn a profit though they are expecting to in 2016 has launched a dog food product that has no preservatives and therefore needs to be housed in a refrigerator. Since many pet food stores don’t have refrigerator space available they installed them in stores and incur the added cost of doing so to capture this premium dog food market.

The innovations are not limited to small start-up companies. Beneful, one of the giants of the dog food industry and owned by Nestle, has launched an ordering service where customers can design their own dog food blend and order it online through the Beneful website. This gives them control over what their dog eats and allows the dog owner to have a fully custom designed food.

Beyond these more novel product offerings, companies are also simply improving the mix of their dog foods and launching premium and organic dog foods. Beneful has acquired one of the leading organic dog food makers and many other companies have followed suit by introducing their own organic food blends. This has contributed to the higher quality dog food products in the market and has let both the dog food makes, and the dogs, flourish with higher quality food.
