The YouTubers Kim Dao and Sunnydahye have great fun together in both Japan and South Korea. Luckily for the world, Kim Dao often vlogs her experiences with Sunnydahye and posts them online. In one video, which Kim entitled “Osaka to Tokyo | Karaoke | Vlogmas #13 | KimDao ft. Sunnydahye,” both Kim Dao and Sunnydahye take us on a Japanese journey from Osaka to Tokyo.

 

At the start of the video, Kim Dao says she just woke up and it’s almost 12:00pm. Both Kim Dao and Sunny went to Universal Studios Japan yesterday, so they’re very tired from their adventures around the park. Kim says she and Sunny are going to take the bullet train from Osaka back to Tokyo today.

 

Before she leaves Osaka, Kim Dao’s host family gives her a cooling patch for her butt. Kim Dao says she fell down the stairs yesterday and bruised her buttocks.

 

A few minutes later, Kim Dao heads off to Osaka Station to take the bullet train to Shinjuku Station. When Kim arrives back at her Tokyo apartment, she says she feels completely exhausted from the trip.

 

After freshening up a bit, Kim Dao and Sunny go out to eat in Tokyo. Both Sunny and Kim share a yummy cheese pizza and order a few pasta dishes.

 

The video closes with Kim Dao and Sunny singing a bunch of songs at a local karaoke bar. A few songs they both sing include “Anaconda,” “Let It Go,” and a Japanese Christmas song. Both girls are incredibly tired by the end of their karaoke session and decide to call it a night.

A Smart Investment Plan

When it comes to investment, Warren Buffett puts his money where his mouth is, quite literally. The guy invested $1 million dollars in an S&P passive index fund – a charity fund, for a better return. He is set to know the outcome this year and the way things are going, he’ll likely reap large profits.

Buffett’s secret to success is minimizing cost. Mutual funds offer mediocre, poor returns due to the high management costs of running them. However, Buffett agrees that there is an exception to this. For example, if two people invested $10,000 each, 40 years ago, one in the S&P fund and the other in the five best active funds, the latter would get more money today.

Ultimately, it is not about passive or active funds. What’s important is the ability to receive long-term returns from an investment option, and Tim Armour agrees with Buffett on this.

Soon after graduating from Middlebury College, Tim began his career at the Capital Group Companies in the associate program. After rising through the ranks, he has assumed the chairmanship of the company, after the death of its chairman – Jim Rothenberg.

If you look at the strategic partnership between his company and the Samsung asset man agent that he helped form, Tim comes out as very strategic. He wants to achieve a better solution to Korean investors by supervising the resources through all market cycles and see them get a better savings and retirements plan.

In short, Tim’s leadership of America’s oldest asset management company is a success story. The company is growing and flourishing more than ever before. Tim is clearly the real deal.

George Soros – A Smart Businessman With Great Concern For The Society He Lives In

George Soros is one of the most noted philanthropists, opinion leaders and political contributors in the United States today. He has been an active supporter of Democratic Party for years and in the recent elections, did everything he could in his power, including raising funds for Hillary Clinton and directly and indirectly supported Clinton’s Campaign more than $24 million personally. George Soros is of the opinion that Trump’s policies would ruin the growth momentum that the United States is witnessing today, and in fact, would paddle the country’s growth backward. Read his profile at Forbes.

Moreover, he feels that the policies and attitude of Donald Trump would make America insecure and unsafe, especially when talking about the social fabric of the country. George Soros completely disagrees with the Trump’s take on immigrants and refugees, because he started in the United States as an immigrant decades ago and feels actually for the refugees and immigrants.

In a recent announcement, George Soros committed to provide $500 million to support the business ventures started by the members of refugees and immigrants’ society. He believes it would help them take their business to another level and give many of the entrepreneurs with the funds they need to start their business. George Soros has been influencing the political sphere of the country for long, especially through his donations and views. Visit projectsyndicate.com to know more about George.

He has contributed generously towards many of the Democrat Super PACs for many years, including during the recent U.S. Presidential Election Campaign. He feels that Trump’s victory would put many of the Democratic causes in the backburner. However, to ensure that it doesn’t happen, he and other Democrats met as soon as the election got over to decide what to do with the remaining funds in the Super PACs and how to take ahead the causes they feel for under Trumps’ Presidency.

George Soros is the 19th richest person on the planet today with the wealth of over $25.2 Billion. His company, Soros Fund Management, is one of the most profitable hedge funding companies on the globe and has been consistently delivering returns over thirty to forty percent annually, which is huge. He fled his home country Hungary when he was small to avoid Nazi’s Holocaust and went to London, where he studied business at London School of Economics. After completing his studies in London, he eyed his growth in the United States and thus, went to New York and started working at one of the many financial and investment companies on Wall Street. It is what marked the beginning of his career.

Today, he is the tenth highest earning hedge fund managers. As an active philanthropist as well, he is known to have given over a billion dollars in aid towards charity and social causes through his foundation named “Open Society Foundation.”

Betsy Devos Proud & Worthwhile Legacy

Betsy DeVos is inspiration for us all for many reasons. She is the United States Secretary of Education, an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and is happily married to her husband, Dick DeVos, of over 30 years. But what makes her stand out even more is that through her personal and professional achievements, her family and her still make time to give back to others. And because of this, she has been widely honored and recognized through a recent interview with Philanthropy Roundtable about her family’s philanthropy especially in regards to the education reform movement. Read more about their foundation at dbdvfoundation.org.

Interview Recap

First, she expressed her how pleased she was that 250,000 students were in 33 private choice programs within 17 states and in DC that were publicly funded. She has been concerned in how the public schools have been failing, and thus, she has been involved in the radical movement for children’s education reform. Even when her and her husband’s children were school-age children decades ago, she saw the struggle of many parents trying to make sure their children are safe, are loved, and are learning. It touched their hearts so much that the DeVoses started to assist financially with that one school. Afterwards, they broaden their giving a lot further: She served on the board of the American Education Reform Council and the Children First America in the 1990s, her and her husband were involved in passing the first charter school bill for Michigan in 1993, she has been serving as the Michigan Republican party’s chairperson for 1996 to 2005, she started the Great Lakes Education Project after the proposed constitutional amendment was defeated, and then she began getting involved with the American Federation for Children (AFC) in which she is now the chairman. She is also the chair for the Alliance for School Choice. Other than that, she has been doing more lobbying and other political involvement for educational reform for all children regardless of their zip codes. Betsy DeVos spoke highly of charter schools in that interview, and she said that homeschooling is another great education option. However, digital learning is still in its infancy stage, according to her. And she expressed how bipartisanship is needed in education.

Dr. Coleman Presents State of Stem Cell Therapy in the U.S.

Dr. Jack Coleman, M.D. recently talked about the state of stem cell therapy in the U.S. at the International Congress on Stem Cell Research in Italy. Dr. Coleman is with the Lung Institute and works to find new ways to improve the quality of life for people with various lung diseases. He claims that stem cell therapies are becoming more popular with treating lung diseases, however, in the U.S. the process of introducing a new medicine or medical procedure takes too long to reach the market. Medicines are bogged down by regulations, making them very expensive, if they every do make it to patients.

In a report by Hawaii News, Dr. Coleman looks at the way the U.S. functions versus other countries, to see how things may be improved. He talks about how the intense regulations and expense of introducing medicine in the laboratory through trials and getting it to patients is outdated and antiquated. Dr. Coleman and other speakers at the event talked about various aspects of stem cell therapy and research including the ethical implications and the various groups close to the stem cell issue. Some of these include researchers, the Catholic Church, physicians and patients.

The recent theme was “From Cells to Cell Products. Development of New Therapeutic Tools.” Dr. Coleman emphasizes the fact that most stem cell research is funded by biotechnology companies and the U.S. Government. Much of the research is therefore under government control. These expenses are then passed on to consumers and insurance companies. Dr. Coleman stresses that the costs may not be passed on fairly. This causes patients to look for treatments in areas that are not under so much regulation and may not be as safe or effective. He claims that researcher’s responsibility is to give the best, safest treatment to patients to relieve pain and provide a good quality of life.

The Lung Institute promotes stem cell therapy (https://lunginstitute.com/treatment/) for lung diseases like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pulmonary fibrosis and other lung diseases in the U.S. The Lung Institute has treated over 3000 patients with various lung ailments. A study showed that most patients treated showed an improvement in their quality of life. The Institute opened in Tampa, Florida in 2013. There are currently clinics in Nashville, Scottsdale, Pittsburgh and Dallas. For more information, visit lunginstitute.com.
