Queens of Drama: Soap Reality

There was a time when soap operas dominated daytime TV. However, as Reality TV has grown in popularity, soap operas have waned. One thing to notice is that Reality TV does have something in common with soap operas. There is a lot of drama. One show is made that is geared towards bringing back the soap opera. This show is called Queens of Drama. It has debuted in a ten episode first season that started with Donna Mills taking on the lead role. There were other stars that included Crystal Hunt. However, her role was very small at first. As the series progressed, Crystal Hunt’s character has grown more in what she has to do on the show.

Crystal Hunt plays a fictional version of herself in which she works along with other women on starting up a production company. She was a bit closer to a background character until later in the season when she was pitted against Joan Collins, a British soap opera star. So far, she has shown a bit of promise in her role. However, Crystal Hunt has also done some memorable roles outside of Queens of Drama.

Among the roles that Crystal Hunt played was a role in Magic Mike XXL. One of her most memorable roles was that of Lizzie Spaulding in Guiding Light. The character was a troubled daughter dealing with the issues of Philip and Beth Raines and their troubled relationship. She has done such a good job that she has won an Emmy Award for Daytime TV. She has also starred on One Life to Live for a little while as Stacy Morasco. After leaving the show, she has made a couple of appearances in later episodes. Even though she has taken a few roles at the start of her acting career, she has taken on quite a few roles in the previous year, highlights of which appear on YouTube.

China Thinks George Soros Is Dreaming When He Says China Is The Catalyst For Another Great Recession Read more

China Thinks George Soros Is Dreaming When He Says China Is The Catalyst For Another Great Recession

The Chinese don’t like bad press. That’s one of the reasons the Chinese news agency is controlled by the government. The Chinese really don’t like billionaire investors betting against their currency either. In fact, in a rare show of annoyance, the Chinese recently told George Soros that he was playing with fire if he bet against the yuan. Soros is not the kind of guy that is intimidated by foreign governments. In fact, he has more money than some of the governments in the world today. The Chinese want him to stop talking about them, but that’s not going to happen


.

George Soros is a man on a mission. As a former refugee, waiter, Wall Street newbie, and Hungarian-born human rights advocate, Soros has experienced the highs and lows that come from climbing the ladder of success. Mr. Soros is now considered one of the wealthiest people on the planet, and a social activist that has spent $6 billion during his lifetime to promote democracy and open societies on facebook.com. But Soros is also a philosophy major that dabbles in world economics, and his dabbling has made him famous as well as controversial.




Mr. George Soros has been studying what has been going on in China as well as in other emerging markets over the last eight years, and he believes the world is in the beginning stages of a global recession. Countries like Brazil, Russia, and South Africa were the first to feel the strain of the Chinese meltdown, according to an article on the Bloomberg.com website. Then Greece, Spain, Portugal and Asian countries were next. The European countries that are in a recession or depression mode didn’t get in that mode because of China, however. They put themselves in that mode by poor government choices and free-spending when they joined the European Union.




Even though George Soros told Bloomberg.com that China’s weak economy is the main reason for another global recession, he also said the European Union is to blame as well. The European Union is on the verge of a collapse, and if that happens, Europe will be in serious trouble. Europe is already feeling the symptoms of a recession, and if the EU breaks up, those symptoms will become a serious illness. 




When CNBC.com wrote about Soros and his humanitarian efforts around the world, the article also mentioned the Soros prediction that a global recession is imminent. Soros said the global recession is unavoidable, but the consequences can be less if the world reacts fast enough. But Soros said that reaction is based on the United States recognizing the signs, and it seems the Federal Reserve doesn’t believe in a global recession or they wouldn’t be considering raising interest rates.

He is the founder and Managing Director of Dynamic Search Partners. This is a recruitment firm that sources highly skilled and competent executives to work in hedge fund management firms. It has been recognized as the largest staffing organizations in the wedge fund business.

Handy Contractors Have the Right Touch

Handy Cleaning Services has emerged as one of the most successful companies for the home cleaning industry. In 2012, Handy Cleaning Servicers founder Oisin Hanrahan had an idea that they brought to light. He didn’t invent anything new, but he certainly captivated a lot of people with a service that would bring a lot of contractors from different parts of the world together for a common mission.

These are contracted workers that are on the same page when it comes to cleaning homes and providing super service for employees. This is the pattern that has been the same as the business grows. One might compare the services rendered to that of Uber. There are contracted Uber drivers all over the United States. These are independent workers, but there is a universal thread of quality service that these drivers will respond to. They want to do the best job in order to earn the repeat business. This is the same concept for Handy Cleaning Services. The workers want to earn repeat business from customers.

Handy caters to the homeowners that is too busy to clean. The contractors also cater to those that need furniture assembled. There are also clients that are going to need televisions mounted. The contracted workers have different skills, but their mission is the same. They are on the job to provide quality service. This is what keeps the business brand strong. This is also the thing that makes Handy the type of company that can compete successfully with other local cleaning companies.

The business is changing, and the founder of Handy is trying to make sure that the customer satisfaction element stays the same. Hanrahan knows that this is what has taken the organization this far. This will be the thing that keeps the company on top.

Argentina Bonds Back, Better Than Ever Read more

Argentina Bonds Back, Better Than Ever

At the end of 2015, there were big developments occurring with Argentina in the financial world. These developments were predicted by James Dondero of Highland Capital Management. Jim foresaw that Argentina was a very attractive investment opportunity and their standoff with hold-out creditors would eventually have to come to an end. The reason for this foregone conclusion is that Argentina had a staggering $95 billion default in 2001 and in 2014 they defied U.S. court orders to settle with their creditors. Since that point in 2014, the country has been barred from international credit markets leaving it unable to raise capital for normal government functions.

James Dondero knew this would come to an end and with the election of President Mauricio Macri, the country began to take a path to re-enter the international credit markets. President Macri achieved this by undoing the policy decisions of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner who defied U.S. courts and caused Argentina to be excluded. The country is aiming to release $12 billion in new bonds ranging from 5, 10, and 30-year issuance as well as servicing their outstanding debt. While some speculate that many holdout creditors would take their profits and run, the opposite is true.

Highland Capital Management is one of the largest holders of outstanding Argentina bonds due in 2033. With the recent U.S. Court ruling lifting the ban on re-structuring the Argentina debt, the management firm stands to win big. When Argentina settles with creditors to re-enter the international credit markets, the management fund will likely earn 20% interest annualized which more than covers their losses up to this point. They intend to invest heavily in Argentina after they reap their rewards even going so far as to set up an Argentina Fund for investors to do so. They are not the only ones either.

Several other investment banks have commented on the level of interest Argentina has gained despite its recent financial woes. It is considered to be very promising when compared to other latin American sovereign debt options and with the bonds being issued under New York law there is a possibility for rating upgrades. These upgrades would provide even more investor confidence for the country which it will need given the size of funding they are hoping to achieve with their issuance at roughly $12 billion.
