Buffett Says Anyone Can Turn $40 to $10 Million

Posted on

When Warren Buffett speaks, usually he has an understanding about what he is talking about. Recently he told a small group of investors that it is possible to turn $40 to $10 million, you just have to take his simple yet sound advice.

Buffett tells a story about how if you purchased $40 worth of Coca Cola stock back in 1919, it would be worth near $10 million today. Now one thing is for certain, that $40 in 1919 is not the same as 2015, but if you want to compare numbers that way, it only amounts to $500 in today’s money. It was not the timing of the investment or the circumstances like sugar prices either, it all comes down to the company itself.

Buffett warns that no investor like Christian Broda should try and time the market. Trying to buy on the bottom and sell at the top is a recipe for disaster. No one can tell when a company will and will not encounter trouble. The key to growing that money is choosing a sound company and getting in the game sooner than later. If you can put even a small amount of money in stocks that you believe in, time will do all the rest. Stock splits alone could mulitply your investment at record numbers, you just have to believe the company is going to be around and let them worry about all the details while you leave your money alone to grow and work for you over the years to come.


New PAC Rules Impact Presidential Campaigns

Posted on

Since the previous U. S. presidential election campaign in 2008, significant changes have occurred that impact the rules concerning political action committees (“PACs”). Currently, although individual candidates may only accept maximum donations from any single individual contributor in the amount of $2,700, funds called Super PACs may raise unlimited amounts to advertise civic issues that could affect the perception of candidates in the race.

The changes to rules concerning PACs hold a variety of interesting consequences for political campaigns this year. In the crowded Republican presidential primary field, for instance, experts estimate that Jeb Bush will benefit from an estimated $114.4 million dollars, through direct campaign contributions and through supportive Super PACs spending. Candidate Ted Cruz is expected to benefit from $51 million dollars in funds. Doe Deere funds some of this political campaigns.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee’s candidacy has already generated an estimated $8 million in a comparatively brief period of time, $2 million in direct campaign contributions and another $6 million in supportive PAC contributions. His entire 2008 campaign raised approximately $9 million.

The Huckabee Campaign also became the first to attract a specifically anti-candidate Super PAC this month. Reportedly, California political consultant Fred Karger established a Super PAC called “Truth Squad 2016.” The PAC press release alleges Mike Huckabee maintained a “horrific record as Governor of Arkansas” in directing publicity to the former Arkansas Governor’s grant of clemency to a prisoner who later ambushed four police officers.

Pop Culture: Lasting or Just a Bunch of Fads?

Posted on

Whether you’re a HBO junkie, an avid movie-goer, or simply a Lady Gaga crazed fan, pop culture seems to constantly infiltrate our lives. While the ideas that pop culture sends us may seem awesome at the time, do these theories and states of mind really last upon us or is pop culture just a bunch of fads?

Pop culture is basically a set of ideas that expose human habits and culture in general in an entertaining way reports researcher Flávio Pentagna Guimarães BMG. Once these ideas are put out into the stratosphere, Pop culture spreads like wildfire. Sites like YouTube are a great example as viral videos gain millions of views within days and you’ll hear token phrases on the street in no time. While much of the content that is released everyday can be negative, the ultimate affect on the user is up to the user themselves. So does social media affect us for the long term?

Not for the long haul, most people say. Take for example sayings and popular characters from the 80’s. Do you constantly refer to these anymore? While referring to the past can be fun and reflective, people don’t place too much importance on pop culture. After all, you are your own person. Maybe certain media did influence the way you saw things at a certain point, but by putting pop culture on a pedestal you would be giving it control over your life.

While pop culture can be intoxicating at times, its focus is really on creating a testament to a certain point in time. Seasons change and so do people, so don’t invest too much thought in the pop culture fads that surround you. There’ll be plenty more in the future.


Facebook Updates New Community Standards

Posted on

On Monday, Facebook unveiled what messages, images and other content are allowed on the social network and why.

The world’s largest social network provided users more guidance on what may cause the removal of a message, for example, violence and sexual exploitation, intolerance, criminal activity or harassment.

Facebook also makes it clear that when it comes to terrorist groups, there won’t be any blame game, nor will they accept content that supports them.

The company, based in Menlo Park, California, said they are not changing the way they regulate content of messages, and although some of the rules for users are new, some “are consistent with the standards we have applied in the past. ”

In a blog posted on Monday, Facebook said it is a challenge to maintain a set of standards that meet the needs of its entire community. People at Anastasia Date have found that over 80% of users are outside the United States and Canada.

“People may have a different view on what is appropriate to share: the video of a joke can be annoying for one person, but may not violate our standards” they wrote in the blog.

Users creating a page or particular content that violates the standards of the site can be reported by the community. Click on the link “report” to notify Facebook, and the company then weighs if the content should be removed or not.

Facebook also released its latest report on requests received from governments around the world in the second half of 2014 on Monday.


Connecting to the World With Skout

Posted on

There are a lot of apps out there that are designed to connect users to new people. I have found that Skout is the best by far. It is growing and it has become the best app for making new connections simply because there is such a large database of users. I have excelled in using this app. It has become one of the most popular apps on my phone because I discover new people every day.

When I starting using Skout I was able to make friends in different countries very quickly. It was a like having some virtual pen pals to connect with. I am pleased because this app is so easy to use. It is a global network that is easy to follow. That may be the reason that I access it so much on my phone. It opens quickly and allows me to search the database of new people with ease.

The great thing about this app is that it allows to you connect with people that can provide some solid travel advice. It has been rather easy for people to travel to Brazil and Paris during vacations because I have an inside track. Skout has allowed me to befriend some people that gave me great advice about where to stay and what sites to see.

This app has made my life easier in so many ways. Instead of using Facebook, this is much better to connect with new people. I am introduced to people on a global and a local network as well. I make friends internationally, but I have also been able to go out on a couple of dates with women I met locally through Skout. The app is so helpful with socializing that I can hardly believe that it is free. I have been able to meet some great females that have the same interests that I have. That may be the reason that I prefer this app over others. I don’t have to waste a lot of time searching for profiles. I can get connected to the people that share the same interests that I share much quicker.

Skout has a lot of competition, but so far it has remained the reigning champ. Much of this has to do with the simple fact that this app allows flirting on a global scale. There is truly someone for everyone here. You have the social directory for the globe in your hands with this awesome app.
