Ellipse USA Co-Founder Jon Urbana Releases Creative Videos

Jon Urbana, co-founder of Ellipse USA and founder of Next Level Lacrosse Camp, has released a number of creative videos online to share his artistic ideas. Jon’s videos share his interests with his followers and give the world a look at his life outside of business. His interests include flying, travel, skiing, and video editing as well as photography. Jon lives in Denver, CO and many of his videos feature the nearby area. Most of them are posted to his official website at jonurbana.com.

Four months ago, Jon posted a video to his Vimeo page that shows his passion for the great outdoors. The video shows Rocky Mountain National Park and snow covered mountains from a wide angle that includes many peaks and tree covered mountainside. The video also features close ups of a flowing creek and waves of overgrown grass fields. Jon contrasts clips of the mountain peaks with the valley floor and the slow moving water that travels through it. He titled the video, “A Fall Morning at Rocky Mountain National Park.”

A video from Rochester, NY featuring the Kodak tower was made by Jon Urbana and posted to his About.me page in December. The 30 second video shows shows a static view of the top of the 19 story Kodak tower which is part of the larger Rochester skyline. Clouds pass by the tower in a time-lapse style video with a bright blue sky in the background.

In a tribute to Jon’s love for the outdoors and one of his fundraisers, Jon recently posted a close-up video of an adult black cat. In the video, a full sized black cat lays in the sunlit grass relaxing on it’s stomach and meowing gently. The video is a tribute by Jon to the Animal Rescue and Adoption Society which primarily benefits orphaned cats in the Denver, CO area. Jon currently has another related video up which details how the ARAS can be supported.

Jon Urbana’s passion for flying is shown in another video posted to his Vimeo, a scene from a recent flight with clouds and an airplane wing silently passing through the sky. In the video’s caption Jon says, “There’s no better view than from the sky.”

Tough Road Ahead: George Soros On The Economy

George Soros is known for his philanthropic and investment work. He has created a dynasty in both worlds. Soros started out in investment and was then able to turn to philanthropy because of his success in investments. Soros first worked as a traveling salesman and sold goods in Welsh seaside resorts. He then got a job in London with Singer and Friedlander. He credits getting this job to the fact that the managing director was, like Soros, from Hungary. Soros worked at the merchant bank for 2 years. First he was a clerk and he then was transferred to the arbitrage department.

In 1956, Soros decided to move to the United States. He got a job with a former co-workers father at F.M. Mayer. Soros served as an arbitrage trader and specialized in European stocks. 3 years later, he moved to Wertheim and Co. Soros served as an analyst of European Securities. Soros then moved on to Arnhold and S. Bleichroeder. He served as a vice president at this investment firm and during this time he also started developing what became the 12 million dollars that Soros Fund Management was based on. It was 17 years after he moved to the United States that Soros decided it was time to found his own investment fund. During his time at the helm of Soros Fund Management, George Soros was able to create record breaking results for himself and for his clients.

Because of all of this success, the opinion of George Soros is taken very seriously by investors and analysts alike. When Soros recently stated his concern for the global economy, Bloomberg dove further into the story to see what exactly Soros was saying. The article summarized Soros’ concerns that he shared at a Sri Lankan economic forum. Soros stated that investors need to be cautious because the global markets are facing a crisis that is very similar to the one that happened in 2008. Soros went on to explain that because of China’s recent struggles, it is causing a strain on the global economy.

The article went on to show startling numbers from various volatility indexes. The index that measures the cost of protections on shares in Japan showed an increase of 43 percent in 2016. There was a 13 percent increase in the Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index. And treasury bonds are expected to increase in price by nearly 6 percent. The article then went on to explain how the situation in China is only causing the numbers to worsen. The weakness in the world’s second largest economy is continuing after the government cut interest rates.

George Soros Predicts European Union in Danger

Change is an inevitable and constant force in all aspects of life and it is no different for the European Union. This is a political union which is known as the EU was originally established to provide common foreign, economic, Justice and security policies. Economic giant George Soros provided opinions in an interview that the EU may actually be experiencing its last gasp as Russia invades the Ukraine the peace of Europe is now being threatened more than any time since the Cold War.
There are other challenges that Soros sees and stated on Bloomberg.com to the European Union and the mass migration of people from the Middle East into Europe is testing the system of open borders and it is harming the common market. Soros called Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany the “Chancellor of the Free World”, because of her role in directing the reaction of the European Union in the challenges they face today. She assumed this position by resisting Russian Aggression.

Due to these reasons the European Union is on the verge of collapse. Soros believes that it is not just one issue but a slow steady stream of challenges and the leadership never really dealt with any of them in a decisive manner. Now there are five or six significant problems facing EU at the same time they are seemingly becoming overwhelmed.

George Soros has been a founder of the philosophy of the open society in Eastern Europe which supports human rights and democratic ideals in a society once controlled by The Soviet Union. That makes it difficult to understand why these countries present so much resentment and opposition to the current refugee problem. Soros believes that it is due to the lack of diversity in the country to begin with. Therefore, those who arrive with different cultures and religious beliefs do not fit in well and problems have erupted.

Soros believes that two of the countries that are threatening the EU are Hungary and Poland. Each has adopted leadership that is reminiscent of democratic leadership between World War I and World War II. They are based on religious unity and nationalism which can lead to a destruction of the democracy in those countries. Even though the countries have been successful both economically and politically, they do not favor participation in the European Union they would rather be operating independently. The rules of the EU can be viewed a binding and limiting to some countries.

George Soros has been involved in developing democratic thinking in Europe and the fact that he can see the collapse of the European Union as a distinct possibility should be an alarm to the rest of the world. With a lack of cooperation comes the potential for conflict and with that the potential for war. Sorros advocates a united immigration policy that would bring the leadership of Europe together, rather than a policy dominated by the nationalism of individual countries.

Joan Collins Returns To TV As One Of The “Queens Of Drama”

TV nostalgia has brought many famous faces back to the small screen in roles in returning classic shows or through reality TV. A group of top soap opera stars have recently returned to our TV screens in a bid to bring the genre back to daytime TV in a major way through their scripted reality show “Queens Of Drama”. Each episode features a core group of female stars of the soap opera genre who have returned to the screen to produce a new show. These women will be joined by “Dynasty” legend Joan Collins who is set to make her small screen return as a guest star with the “Queens Of Drama”.

One of the fun aspects of the “Queens Of Drama” is the use of scripted scenes within the show, that allow the all female cast to show off their acting skills replicating the characters they played in iconic roles. One of the those who has seen her former roles used as the basis for her character in “Queens Of Drama” is Crystal Hunt found here on Metacritic, who made her name with Disney before taking her career to superstar level in “Guiding Light” and “One Life To Live”.  Ms. Hunt also has an acting reel on YouTube highlighting her talents.

Crystal Hunt has always refused to stand still in her career as she looks to embark on roles that take her into many different areas of the entertainment business. IMDb shows that Hunt began her career as a child star with the Disney Corporation before moving into the soap opera genre to push forward her career in more adult roles; the performances of Florida’s Crystal Hunt in soap operas were interspersed with roles in successful movies. Before returning to television screens as one of the “Queens Of Drama” Crystal Hunt had been focused on a movie career in front of, and behind the camera. Hunt made a big screen breakthrough with her performance as the character of Lauren in the critical and box office success, “Magic Mike: XXL”.

Joan Collins is best remembered in the U.S. for her iconic role as Alexis in the much loved soap opera “Dynasty”. Upon accepting the role Collins was given the task of saving the show after it had struggled during its first season, which is a role she fulfilled during her successful stint on the prime time soap opera. The stars of “Queens Of Drama” are looking to use the skills they have developed over the years both in front of and behind the camera as they look to produce a new drama for a major TV network.

Igor Cornelsen Investing Tips

Igor Cornelsen is a great investor that gives good advice, but many investors that are looking for good advice have never heard of him. I have seen his advice posted online, and I will say that he is among the best when it comes to giving out simple advice that will help the average investor earn better returns on investment. I love what he has been able to do for the common investor that doesn’t have a ton of money at his disposal.

He has been able to give stellar tips on newsvine because he has spent a large majority of his life investing. He has given a lot of advice for Brazilian investments, and I know that was foreign to me before I discovered his advice. Cornelsen has the ability to tell me about this type of international investing. I was intrigued to know that the Brazilian market was something more profitable than the American market.

Most investment gurus that are on American soil do not have the insight to tell investors about any type of international investing. Cornelsen, however, has worked heavily outside of Brazil. He knows about more than the American stocks. That was one of the main reasons that I have given him so much attention. I have heard a lot of different investors talking about different investing concepts, but he was the first to mention the possibilities of stocks outside of the United States.

Another thing that I have grown to like about someone like Igor Cornelsen is his ability to actually tell people on bizjournals.com about the need to spread out the investments. So many investors try to pick the hot stocks and see what is going to be the most profitable. They take the risk and push all of their money into a handful of stocks that may not be as profitable as they thought. I have found that Igor Cornelsen and his commonsense wisdom of investing a little bit in a lot of different things to be the best thing to do. This is what I love the most about his tactics.

I think that all investors that are new to investing should hear what Igor Cornelsen has to say. He is certainly one of the most influential forces on the web even though he doesn’t have the same type of expertise that some other top notch investors have He may not have the books and talk shows, but I like Cornelsen better because he has years of proven experience. This alone makes him a valuable force in the investment arena. I think that people could learn a lot from him. He has an investment firm in Florida where he continues exhibiting his knowledge.
