Turmoil Continues In Venezuela As Rioting And Looting Increase

With over 400 individuals arrested for looting and inciting riots, civil unrest continues throughout Venezuela. Turmoil continues to plague the country nationwide as failed economic policies, political chaos, and energy disruptions tighten its grip on the frustrated population. The murder rate is increasing as government security forces seek to control crowds engaged in political demonstrations, violence, and looting.
Several social media sites like Twitter report deaths in the Sucre state capital of Cumana, but local officials dismissed the deaths being associated with widespread looting. Interviewed by a local television station, regional governor Luis Acuna remarked, “There were only 400 people arrested and the deaths were not linked to the looting.”

Jose Manuel Gonzalez, a prosecutor in Merida, started an investigation into the death of a 17-year-old teenager during looting rampages in the western state of Andrean. The civil unrest is not limited to just civilians, with a law enforcement official and soldier arrested in two separate murder investigations. The local Socialist Party office came under attack, with furniture destroyed.

As Venezuela continues to endure rolling blackouts, food shortages, and political anarchy, looting continues, according to the Venezuelan Observatory of Violence, a monitoring organization, overseeing the nationwide chaos.

Political opposition leaders point the finger of blame, for the current state of the country, at President Nicolas Maduro. They claim that socialist economic mandates are driving the country into depression and are demanding a referendum to recall Maduro from office.

George Soros Cites Imminent Global Economic Crisis and EU Collapse As The Main Reasons Of His Increased Bearish Investment

George Soros has affirmed his worries about the world economy with bearish investments. Before the recent investments, he had taken a long break from trading according to people close to the matter. Currently, Soros Fund Management manages about $30 billion dollars on behalf of George Soros after he had refunded all the third party investors share and left Soros Fund Management to manage only his investments. The most recent bearish investments include selling stocks for buying gold and shares in gold miners citing future economic crisis caused by the current China’s problems.

Before going bearish, George Soros cited that China was going through hard economic times and the problems have just started for China. As the government of China implements modalities to drive the next economic giant, Soros cited adjustment problems experienced by the authorities due to the rising debt problem. China’s government is trying to change the growth of the Chain’s economy from manufacturing and investment generated by the growth driven by consumer spending and service industry.

With many of the industries using debt to finance their start-up companies and businesses, the debt problem according to Soros is a serious concern for China and the world as a whole. He believes that The current debt problem in China significantly reflects what caused the economic crisis of 2007/2008 in the U.S., and China cannot avoid a hard landing when the bubble bursts. China’s has however been angered by remarks by George Soros saying that Soros has no basis on his comments and that he had predicted similar economic crisis before that never happened.

The Simple Reason George Soros Is So Bearish Today

A Bearish George Soros Is Trading Again

The point is, Soros may not be perfect but considering his most predictions in the past, one cannot ignore the fact that he might be right in China and then he ends up making a fortune out of the global economic problems. In a recent interview by email with Wall Street Journal, George Soros expressed particular concerns over capital outflows from China as well as how the China’s government are ignoring the rising debt problem in the country.

Soros is also very concerned about the state of Europe and the pending Britain referendum to stay or exit the European Union. He has in the past expressed concerns that, if Britain exits from the European Union, the stability of the Union will be affected and prompt other countries to follow the exit. Soros has even written an article about Britain’s coming referendum urging the country to unite with other European countries and avoid a messy break-up.

According to Soros, the EU is a project of European states that have sacrificed part of their sovereignty to form an ever-closer union based on shared ideals and values. He believes that those shared values are under attack and its time for Britain to realize that. Reflecting on the problems facing Europe such as Russian aggression and refugees, Soros believes it is time to unite.

Emily McClure Reports on WEN Fig

Not everyone has the same hair type, and we won’t all react the same way to a certain hair product. This is why beauty editor and Wikipedia content writer Emily McClure decided to try it for all the fine hair ladies so they didn’t have to.
WEN Hair by Chaz Dean [http://www.wen.com/chaz-dean.html] is known as a great cleansing conditioner that cuts down on hair styling time because it is three products rolled into one. WEN cleansing conditioner includes a cleansing agent like a shampoo, a conditioning agent like a hair conditioner, and contains a magical mix of ingredients that makes it unnecessary to apply a styling product.

WEN Fig is the moisturizing version of Wen hair cleansing conditioner and when used on fine hair was ultra moisturizing. Emily found that the amount of moisture in the WEN Fig not only imparted a shine and vibrance to her hair that was unlike any she had ever experienced, but also imparted some weight to her hair that she was unused to.

Regular shampoo contains sulfates and lathering agents that can strip hair of it’s natural oils. The sulfates strip hair of dirt and yesterday’s leftover styling paste but also strip away the natural oils that impart shine and keep strands healthy. Emily was used to washing her hair at night and waking up for the morning with freshly washed hair. When using WEN she simply found that she needed to switch up her routine, washing her hair with Sephora Fig in the mornings, so that the natural oils in her hair didn’t weigh it down through her slumber.

Overall, using WEN was a great experience for her and she was starting to see some of the benefits of using WEN after only one week. One tip for the fine haired ladies out there was to wash in the morning for full volume.
