George Soros: The Ferguson Connection

The United States was forever changed in August of 2014. A young black male name Michael Brown was shot by a police officer and apparently left dead in the street for many hours. Members of the Black Community were outraged by the incident. Soon, many people started to gather outside and the incident grew into a national event that attracted millions of people from the country and around the world.

One person that was paying close attention to this situation was named George Soros. He is a leading liberal supporter that has helped the cause of minorities and immigrants in the past. Soros is known for making huge financial donations to various causes that he supports.

His work is very important because he is a leading contributor to various liberal organizations that work to keep government and local institutions in check. Without his funding, much liberal organization probably could not stay functional and/or relevant. Learn more about George at Biography.

Ferguson, Missouri became an international incident because of the ongoing police brutality crises within the black community. While this crisis is nothing new, certain situations that arise keeps brining this situation to the forefront. Back in 2013, a white man by the name of George Zimmerman was acquitted for the shooting death of Treyvon Martin which took place in February of 2012.

Many black people were outraged by this situation. Then when the Michael Brown incident took place; black people from this generation were fed up. That is when they decided to stand up and speak out about this ongoing problem.

Various African American protest groups descended into Ferguson to protest the death of Brown. George Soros had funded many groups who came into the area. He did not fund them to create problems or to cause chaos; he funded them so they could speak out against the brutality and injustice that was happening to blacks everywhere by the hands of the police.

Many different groups who are not necessarily involved in racial matters came to Ferguson to stand with the newly emerging anti-racial groups that were present. Groups such as the Drug Policy Alliance, Equal Justice USA, Sojourners and from the Advancement Project and Center for Community Change in Washington had all merged in Ferguson to help support the protest. These groups were supported by Soros. They came to show solidarity with the newly emerging Black Lives Matter organization.

Black Lives Matter was already in operation before the Michael Brown shooting. However, this situation catapulted them into the spotlight. Soros is known for his many great donations. You can check them out in his great book The Philanthropy of George Soros. He is a man who wants societies to remain open and free. He sees police brutality as a means to restrict this freedom. This is why he works hard to support liberal organizations and helps to form protests when they are needed. Know more on cnbc.com about George Soros.

Sheldon Lavin’s story began in the banking industry where he made investments for clients at several big banks back in the 1960s. In the 1970s he decided to go into business for himself by offering independent investment and finance management advice at a boutique consulting firm. It was here that one of his clients was Otto & Sons who was looking to grow their company to keep up with the demands their partner McDonalds had for them. Sheldon Lavin worked well with the Kolschowsky sons who owned Otto & Sons and soon the company was opening multiple plants.

In the mid 1970s the Kolschowsky sons planned to retire and promote Sheldon Lavin to CEO. Initially he didn’t want this because he believed his specialty was finance instead of food, but by and by he began to see how family embodied the company and he believed he could turn the company into something very big. So he accepted the nomination to CEO and in the 1980s started opening processing plants overseas. Lavin has since formed partnerships and led acquisitions of companies such as Baho Food and a Tyson Food plant in south Chicago.

Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. Offers Excellence to the Mortgage Industry

Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. is a post-closing document provider that works with retail mortgage companies, lenders and others involved in the mortgage business. They are the leading assignments provider and lien release company in the world. Eight out of the top ten retail mortgage companies rely on Nationwide for their closing documents.

 

Nationwide can reach into every county in the nation to order the proper records for any mortgage closing purpose, which accounts for over 3,600 locations. The proprietary technology that allows this has been developed after years of hands-on experience in the industry and maximum investment in the effort.

 

Headquarters for Nationwide is in Palm Harbor, Florida and the company has over 600 employees stationed in three different States. In Dallas, Texas a large data center backs up all of the systems of the company just in case an emergency should occur, there will be no gap in the coverage and the delivery of the product to the customers.

The critical issue in the delivery on a national scale of mortgage documents is huge. The complexity and volume alone are enough to expect massive mistakes and miscues. The key to the successful operation of such a massive effort is the accuracy of the documents being delivered and the speed at which the process occurs.

 

Nationwide has a compliance rate of 99.98% and a failure rate of only .78%, which is less than 1%. These figures mean that just shy of 100% of all Nationwide documents are delivered on time and with great accuracy.

 

Much of the success of Nationwide’s stellar results are due to the employees of the company and the training they receive. Nothing short of perfection is expected of employees, and work process is in place down to the smallest detail. When employees are trained properly, and they know the process at each station of delivery, high standards can be met.

 

Perfection can also mean that stress levels can be high as well. John Hillman, the CEO of Nationwide recognizes this, so measures have been put in place for employees to have recourse when they get stressed out. Short breaks and backups are the keys to getting through this potential problem, and Hillman says it works well.

 

The success enjoyed by Nationwide has been like no other company, and if the past is an indication of the future, the company will continue to lead the industry in production and its compliance with high standards.

 

How to be a good manager

Josh Verne, the owner of FlockU.com, gives his view on what makes a manager great. Below are some of the tips he shares:

Josh Verne draws a fine line between being a leader and being a boss. He insists that being a leader is the first step to building a good rapport with one’s employees. A leader, unlike a boss, doesn’t force his will onto others. He earns respect by putting the opinions of those that serve him first, before his.

– A manager understands that a win for the employees or the society is also a win for himself. With this, a leader then should try to make every situation a win-win for both sides.

– Fewer words come with more power. A leader wants to appear authoritative. This can only be accomplished if the leader is a man of few words. People will hence listen to you.

– Money is not everything. One can be a billionaire, but without a good home, they will suffer. Verne, therefore, encourages managers to balance their life, and have time for everything. Each working day is an opportunity to improve every aspect of your life. You should therefore work, not only on your business, but also on your relationships and health as well.

– Most importantly, one should venture into something they are passionate about. According to Verne, it rarely occurs that one emerges successful in a field he is not passionate about.

About Josh Verne

He is an accomplished entrepreneur. As at now, Josh is the CEO of FlockU.com. FlockU is an online platform that allows students, mostly college students, to exchange content. This is done through peer-to-peer connectivity. The platform was established in 2016 and has, since its inception, become popular in a short time.

Before FlockU.com, Verne was the founder and CEO of workpays.me, another online platform that worked to help employees to make purchases. The amounts were then deducted from their payrolls. He founded the firm with help from his long time best friend, Jon Dorfman. He later sold the company to Google Analytics Holding, two years before forming FlockU.com.
