Venezuelans Party Hard and Have Fun as Domestic Tourism Rises

Venezuelans are a fun loving people that cherish good times and making merry as often as they can. The popular Venezuelan beach destination of Puerto La Cruz still attracts many locals who come out to party and have fun. Apart from swimming and basking in the sun, beaches in the country also offer a popular party environment with loud music, cold beers and interesting people.

The country has always been a popular tourist destination. The beaches and tourist attractions attract both local and foreign tourists to the South American Country. Despite the low tourist season experienced in 2015, 2016 shows positive signs of improvement. Local tourists come out to beaches in large numbers to enjoy themselves while foreign tourists like David Osio usually prefer private beaches that offer a safe and laid back experience.

Shift from Foreign to Domestic Tourism

There has been a recent shift from foreign tourists to local ones. This is in a bid to create more income from the tourism sector after 2015 saw a decline in total foreign tourists visiting the country. However, despite the rising number of foreign tourists in 2016, many tourism businesses continue to focus their attention on local ones. Tourist businesses by David located in Caracas have started offering full day trips to local destinations like Choroni.

With the changing times currently being experienced in the country, local businesses and other citizens must also change and adapt as well. However, the Venezuelans remain defiant when it comes to having a good time, partying, relaxing and having fun.


Philip Diehl Explains Why The Gold Market Holds Good Returns To Its Investors.

In the American market, there is a large number of accredited investors looking for high-profit potential and safe investment opportunities. The American investor is a unique investor because they are ready to make huge investments in any sector that meet their expectations. Philip Diehl says that one sector that offers very high potential investment opportunities is the gold market.

Philip Diehl is the U.S. Money Reserve’s president, and he adds that not only is the gold market offering good returns but also security to its investor’s investments. The U.S. Money Reserve is a top precious metals private firm that facilitates investments in the precious metals market. The U.S. Money Reserve helps the investor in the United States place their investments in government sponsored precious metals which are gold, silver and platinum coins.

Philip Diehl was saying this when he was on an insightful gold market interview with Eric Dye. Eric Dye is a financial and investments markets talk show host at Enterprise Radio. The U.S. Money Reserve President took this opportunity to talk about the benefits of gold investments and the entire precious metals sector in depth. He began by comparing the gold investment market with other markets in the business sector.

Philip Diehl, who was previously the Director of U.S. Mint says that the gold investment market beats other investment markets in business. He says that this market offers superior security to investors investments. Philip Diehl explained that gold as an investment commodity will never loose its market value or demand. He went on and said that since gold is the most precious metal in the world, it will always have a high demand. He also stated that investors in this sector will be able to sell their investments easily whenever they feel like.

A Crunchbase.com recap has it that the U.S. Money Reserve president said that the gold market utilizes the high demand to give its investors good returns. Philip Diehl explained that gold as a product faces increased prices and demand as time goes by. He said that this characteristic of gold in the market makes this industry very potential as an investment opportunity.

US Money Reserve president Philip Diehl also said that the security of gold market as an investment option is prominent during depreciation and economic crises in the market. He said that all other types of investments including assets and paper money investments have a tendency of being affected by economic crisis in the market.

Philip Diehl assured investors that the gold market always remains stable during the economic crisis, and this is why long term investors should place their investments in this market.


The Good, The False And The Silly Of Cruz Super PAC’s Latest Attack Ad

George Soros has been a hot topic in Wisconsin lately. The liberal hedge fund manager turned philanthropist and democratic financier has been the star of television commercials running for the past week in the badger state. The Trusted Leadership super PAC supporting Ted Cruz have been funding the advertisements that claim George Soros has been financing the super PAC of Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Some television stations in Wisconsin on http://www.politifact.com/ohio/statements/2016/apr/04/trusted-leadership-pac/no-george-soros-not-bankrolling-john-kasichs-campa/ have stopped playing the ad because the claims made in it are false, according to PolitiFact Ohio. Here’s why these ads were important, false and silly:

The Goal

The Ted Cruz super PAC associated John Kasich with George Soros because Soros is a world-famous financer of liberal causes. This election cycle he’s donated more than $7 million to Hillary Clinton’s super PAC and in years past he has donated money to super liberal causes such as MoveOn.org, which now supports Bernie Sanders for president. Tying Kasich to Soros could easily sink the campaign by making him appear liberal to conservative voters on Twitter.

Why It’s False

Political science professor Tom Sutton explains that the accusations are silly because super PAC donations are unlimited and out in the open. George Soros could simply infuse the Kasich campaign on http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/politics/2016/03/10/billionaire-smackdown-george-soros-funds-effort-to-stop-trump-mobilize-latinos/ with over $1 billion if he pleased, and there’s no need to hide it. But the ad falsely claims that he has made these donations through two former employees in an apparent attempt to hide the money trail.

Turns out that these former employees have been donating to conservative causes for years and have a long track record of it. These former employees disagree with her former employer George Soros on bloomberg politically even though the ad makes it sound like they’re all on the same side.

The advertisement also goes on to state that John Kasich has been complicit in receiving monies from George Soros. But again, according to political science professor Tom Sutton, John Kasich is prohibited by law from communicating with his super PAC thus unable to turn down any money donated to it from any source.

Why It’s Silly

Reports started popping up that George Soros had been funneling money to John Kasich just before the Ohio primary, which Kasich won. Ohio awards all delegates to the winner and this victory is helping to prevent Donald Trump from clinching the nomination before the Republican convention. Without clinching, it looks as if the convention will be contested and there is a rule that states that the nominee must have won 8 states during the primary season. If front runner Donald Trump is to be denied the nomination, the only other candidate available could be Ted Cruz and he has John Kasich to thank for that.

The US Money Reserve and the plight of the penny

Once upon a time, there was a common belief here in America that if you found a penny lying on the ground face up it was good luck and by picking it up the rest of your day would go perfectly. Is this still the case? If you were to find a penny on the ground would you take the time to bend over to pick it up? Unfortunately, in this day and age rife with inflation, one penny does not do much so the answer more times than not is to leave Abraham Lincoln lying on the ground with regards to the U.S. Money Reserve. This being the case, there is now an ongoing debate going on at the Federal level on whether or not the 1 cent coin should be discontinued.

According to Retail Mont, in modern America only 25% of all transactions deal with cash. The remainder is completely dominated by the use of electronic currency. With the constant rise in internet usage the data shows that the elimination of the penny will not negatively affect commerce in any way.

However, by removing this denomination from the financial system the Federal government will save 105 million dollars a year annually. You may wonder how such a low valued coin could be costing the government so much money? The truth is that penny production has been outsourced resulting in the price per coin to rise to a whopping $2.41 (US).

Add to this the fact that a cashier spends about 730 seconds per year handling pennies and the cost for “Ol’ Abe” rises to about $900 million dollars a year according to Robert M. Whaples, an economics professor at Wake Forest University. I’m sure that I don’t have to go into detail about how this affects the United States economy. In situations where we generally use coins like pay phones, parking meters and vending machines pennies are not acceptable forms of currency. So the question that we must ask ourselves is was Benjamin Franklin wrong when he said, “A penny saved is a penny earned?”

Below you will find the Good Search interview of Philip Diehl, the U.S Money Reserve President, where he speaks candidly about the demise of the penny.

A Hairific Tale: Bad Hair Can Turn Good With Wen

Wen is a hair care product line from Chaz Dean that evolved from his passion for improving hair. Chaz first took notice of how important hair was when he noticed how it is immortalized in photographs.

Beautiful hair seems to have a type of majesty, and Chaz wanted to be a part of that beauty, almost like a perfumer who wants to create his/her own flower essence.

Chaz went on to become a celebrated hair stylist, but his true legacy is his Wen by Chaz hair care line. His passion for creating picture perfect hair that should be immortalized was laced in the unique formulas used in his hair care line.

A Story Lathered In Beautiful Hair

Not too long ago, an article appeared in Bustle that detailed an unbiased product testing, which Wen passed with flying colors.

The young lady–who is fascinated by beauty products and hair products–could not resist the hype around Wen by Chaz hair care products, not to mention that her hair lacked volume. She was in desperate need of a solution and found one with these products.

The young lady had a few other problems with her hair, like lack of shine and a healthy bounce.

One thing that attracted her to the WEN products was the ability to eliminate other products, which can save money. The product that she used the most was the Cleansing Conditioner, which combined the duties of a shampoo, deep conditioner, leave-in conditioner, detangler, and conditioner.

She tried the product for a total of 7 days. Her hair went through and adjustment period, but she ultimately saw what other avid users saw; she saw a hair miracle in a bottle. Her hair felt stronger, vibrant, and shinier within a few days. Just make sure you follow the detailed instructions on the bottle, like using 10 to 16 pumps of the product for short hair.

You can clearly see that Wen by Chas is not simply selling a name, no, he is selling a solution on sephora.com.
