The financial crisis of 2009 and the real estate bubble are two events, which many Americans dread to relive. Retirements were destroyed. A baby boom generation poised to enjoy their glory years became lifelong employees. They cannot afford to stop working.
How would you feel if 40 year’s worth of retirement benefits disappeared? There are those who died from the shock. Then there are those who sought the services of Martin Lustarten. A double citizenship, a career in investment banking and a brilliant mind define the man.

Martin Lustgarten has a special place in his heart for retirees. Retirement is a goal. He believes ones needs help to achieve it. His financial and success model is simple; retirees need to become international investors. Diversifying across counties is frowned as spreading oneself too thin. However, he believes it can be done with a close financial eye.

His model of spreading wealth across many countries reduces risk. He makes money from having a clear birds eye view of where the economy is going. Things may be going wrong in one country, according to the residents in the country. Taking the same experiences through a different looking glass could unearth avenues to make wealth beyond the imagination.

A similar model was used by Sir John Templeton. The most famous international investor is George Soros. He borrows from the same book. He works very hard to make his clients rich. George Soros made a killing with the British currency. He read the signs right. According to Martin Lustgarten, a diverse global portfolio is necessary to expand your wealth.

For retiree looking for a mentor Martin is perfect for the role. Investors who do not know where to take their money can benefit by following his steps. For him, it is not about paying the bills, but about making money.

A recovering US economy is a source of more stability for the dollar. Martin has already identified the recent moves as fertile ground. The Federal Reserve Bank low-interest rate policy means you can get cash at very low rates. Martins’ advice is to get deeply into debt, while there is still a chance.

Martin Lustgarten is an investment banker. He was born in 1958, and he lives in Florida. The advice on the street is to follow each of investments closely. Follow Lustgarten on Tumblr to learn more.

Recently as reported by PR Newswire, Securus Technologies has released the new THREADS 3.1 which is the most advanced data analytical tool in the market today. I also learned that the release was announced by Securus last December 21, 2015.

What is the impact of this latest update?

BBB.org gives us a backgrounder, Securus is the number 1 provider of technological innovations designed primarily for security and investigation activities especially in the field of public safety and criminal justice. The company is known for its state-of-the art platforms one of which is THREADS.

This implies that Securus is not jut satisfied with being the leader in the industry. It shows that user satisfaction is its primary concern over its market position.

Why are the changes they have made?

n They enabled some features that can record the loading details as well as the search function.

n They improved the system navigation and other related functions in order to make the platform much more user-friendly.

n There were also several built-in functions that were no longer useful and necessary, and they have now been removed to make the system more efficient and effective.

n Web-based technologies have advanced over a certain period of time. Therefore, to keep up with the latest technology, they adjusted the platform to make it more compatible with all the latest web-based technologies.

n They also enhanced the user interface (UI) not only for aesthetic purpose but also for smart functionality.

Is there a big difference from the previous one?

As far as I can see, there is a big difference since some unnecessary actions have already been removed. Nevertheless, the powerful features which many of Securus clients got used to are still kept. What makes THREADS 3.1 far different is because of the improvements of existing functions and the addition of new features.

Additional Features

n Guided real-time analysis

n Context-sensitive reports

n Customized mapping and printing

n Capability of integration with other Securus products


In my own assessment, I am convinced that THREADS 3.1 is an improvement rather than a correction. The changes that Securus has made seem to be based on the changes in the field of technology in general. Even so, THREADS 3.1 has been released not only to keep up with the latest technology but to be introduced as the most advanced data analytical tool in the market today.

Lime Crime is a cosmetic company founded in New York City, New York by Doe Deere. They are now headquartered in Los Angeles, California. For those readers unfamiliar with Deere and her company, don’t get worry lines. Here is a bit of background on the subjects in question.

Doe Deere, legally known as Xenia Vorotova, is not only the founder of Lime Crime but also the CEO and the owner of the makeup company. She is a native of Russia but she grew up in New York City, New York. She started the company because she could not find makeup products that were quite colorful enough to go with the custom line of clothing she was marketing on Ebay.

The official Lime Crime company launch occurred in October of 2008. It began with several different brushes, eyeshadows, glitters and a primer. Doe followed these up with her distinct and unusual Unicorn Lipsticks the following year.

The company states that their original Velvetines line of lipstick, which they first put on the market in 2012, was what ignited the entire liquid to matte lipstick movement present today. Lime Crime products have always been cruelty free. Much of their product line has also been vegan since the company began in 2008.

Doe, a significant, sometimes celebrity-like figure in her field, supervises all product development and is said to be very sensitive to her customer base. In 2012 she oversaw the reformulation of the remainder of her product line in order to conform with vegan requirements.

The Lime Crime cosmetics product line can now be found in retail outlets across the globe in countries such as the U.S., the U.K., Australia, Indonesia, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, Russia and Thailand. Lime Crime products are also available online through the official company website and many other internet retailers.  Check out their tips on Tumblr for great looks, or follow them on Instagram @LimeCrimeMakeup.


Wikipedia should never be overlooked as a fantastic resource for promoting a name or brand. Businesses looking to establish their credibility or individuals interested in building up their online reputation may find a friend in Wikipedia. As long as a contributor follows the rules of the online encyclopedia, problems should not arise. “Should not” does not mean “will not” as editors may make calls contributors disagree with.

And this, as Tech.Mic reveals, leads to contributors getting a bit angry with the editors who reject each and every Wikipedia revision. An unsettling number of contributors have a tendency to be abusive to editors in their communications with the volunteer Wikipedia staff.

Editors have been known to be a little harsh in responding back to contributors. Sometimes, editors may be a little too enthusiastic about flagging content as being inappropriate.

This is not to suggest Wikipedia is rife with nothing but problems. The overall process of submitting content to Wikipedia is easy. Things commonly go smoothly. With 80,000 contributors and a small number of editors, some confusion may arise here and there. And the massive size of Wikipedia edits means things may not work out perfectly all the time.

Those in charge of the Wikipedia Foundation, the entity that runs the online encyclopedia, is committed to promoting clear and effective communications between editors and contributors. Those running the Wikipedia Foundation do take the situation seriously and do not want to see editors dealing with abuse. Apparently, a hire-than-desirable number of editors quit prematurely. The Wikipedia Foundation would like more than anything to reduce turnover among editors.

To the person hoping to make Wiki page for promotional purposes, the perception of the online encyclopedia as a giant bureaucracy is off-putting. No one lines to deal with a lot of extra and unnecessary effort. Nor does anyone want to contribute enormous resources to the process.

Get Your Wiki takes all the worries, hassles, and extra effort out of getting really excellent content onto Wikipedia. The primary function of Get Your Wiki is to create a Wikipedia page for the site on behalf of clients. The content will adhere to all the rules of Wikipedia to make sure the content does not suffer from unwanted or unwelcome edits. Get Your Wiki, of course, can re-edit content to guarantee the original vision is maintained.

Get Your Wiki delivers another benefit. Clients don’t have to deal with any extra concerns or duties from Wikipedia editors. It’s easy to get published on Wikipedia with Get Your Wiki.

George Soros has long been considered one of the best speculators in the world when it comes to global currencies. He has made billions of dollars by being able to accurately analyze various markets and make moves with large amounts of money when George Soros thinks there is going to be a fluctuation in a currency. He came to the fore front in terms of market prediction in 1992, when he bet that the UK was going to have to devalue their currency. ValueWalk has recently put out an article that depicts his strategy during this time frame, as he knew that the UK was going to have to devalue their currency, putting his own hedge fund on the line.

1992 was an interesting time in terms of monetary systems on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soros_Fund_Management during the early 1990’s, and Britain wound up trying to do some things that put them in hot water. They were a part of the Exchange Rate Mechanism, or ERM, which basically was a system to handle the many monetary systems that were present in Europe. When you have countries that are in close proximity that are exchanging currency frequently, this type of exchange rate system is essential in order to ensure that the exchange rate is fair. The UK had very high inflation rates during the time and took action to try to boost the pound. They basically raised their interest rates in an attempt to attract people in Europe to invest in the pound. George Soros was one of the people that recognized that this was not going to work and decided that he was going to short the currency. The UK eventually had no other choice but to withdraw from the ERM, as they were spending way too much money trying to artificially boost the pound. 

The end result was that Soros accurately guessed that the pound was going to drop in relation to other currencies and put his chips in a position to increase in value. He made over a billion dollars in this move alone on www.valuewalk.com/2016/05/george-soros-broke-gbp-trade-century/, which is why so many people took notice and still to this day consider him to be without a doubt one of the best speculators on the planet. After Soros did this and the UK was forced to devalue their currency, the hedge fund that Soros possessed increased from fifteen billion to twenty two billion dollars over a few months, although it jumped drastically on the first day. Since this time, George Soros has continued to accurately forecast what is going to happen in various markets and has increased his net worth significantly since the early nineties, but this was one of the biggest money makers over his career thus far.
