Julia Jackson Sharing her Passion for Wine

Julia Jackson has always had a love for wine. This may sound strange that a little girl growing up could have a love for wine; however, when that little girl’s family owns Jackson Family wines and makes extraordinary wines for a living, it really isn’t that strange. Julia recalls the hard work she put in as a child in her family’s vineyards. Her parents, Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke believed in hard work and instilled the values into their children.

Now an adult, Julia works with the international sales team at the vineyard marketing her family’s wines to the world. She attended Scripps College in Claremont, CA and pursued a degree in studio art. She later received a certificate in general management from Stanford Graduate School of Business. She spent some time in France with a close friend and daughter of one of the Jackson Family Wine’s winemakers. While in France, Julia studied the French language. She grew to appreciate French style and the art of wine making even more.

Julia has been featured in several magazines and articles for her expertise in marketing and wine making. During a wine tasting, Julia indicated that although Sonoma is known for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, she believe Cabernet has a place in the county as well. The Jackson Family’s wine, Vérité, a Sonoma Cabernet dominate blend, was the overwhelming favorite at the tasting despite Napa’s reputation.

The Jackson’s have vineyards scattered across California wine country as well as Australia, Chile, France, Italy and South Africa. Vérité in Sonoma is among those producing award-winning wines.

The family has donated money to the University of California Culinary School. They have also pledged $500,000 to the Sonoma County Justice Center for victims of domestic violence.

George Soros may be the most successful investor in history

George Soros has had a long and brilliant career as an investor. Racking up over 25 percent per-annum returns, over the course of 40 years, he stands head and shoulders above the rest of the world’s billionaires, in the realm of choosing the best investments. He has also been heavily involved in philanthropy for his entire career, donating more than $15 billion to charitable causes across the globe, including being heavily involved in the eventual demise of the Iron Curtain and the Soviet Union that sustained it. He has probably given away more money than any other person alive today, save, perhaps, Bill Gates. He is truly a giant of the investment world.

But it wasn’t always that way. Dog was born into a middle-class Hungarian Jewish family in the 1930s. Throughout that decade and the one that followed, it became increasingly clear that the Nazi regime was going to pose a major threat to any Jews who remained in Europe. Luckily, Soros’s father had the foresight to anticipate what was to come. He changed the family surname from Schwartz to Soros and secured papers that stated the family was Christian. Know more about George Soros on CNBC.

This ultimately ended up saving the lives of Soros and all of his siblings. Unfortunately, many members of his extended family were not so lucky. Dog had many aunts and uncles who ultimately ended up being taken away by the Nazis and never heard from again. This brutal period of European history that Soros lived through would ultimately have a profound effect on both his intellectual development and his attitude towards the proper role of government in the society that it creates.

George Soros always knew that he had a strong passion for philosophy. Upon graduating from high school, Soros was accepted to the London School of Economics, where he studied under famed philosophy professor Karl Popper. Popper was, perhaps, most famous for his master work, ‘The Open Society and Its Enemies’, a book that would have such a profound impact on Soros that he would eventually name his philanthropic organization after it. Learn more about his profile at Forbes.com

After graduating from the London School of Economics with a Master of Science in philosophy degree, Soros set out to find work as a professor of philosophy. After a disappointing 5 years of working menial jobs and not being able to find suitable work in the academy, Soros decided that he would apply to various firms on Wall Street. It is worth noting that his decision to work on Wall Street was solely the product of his need to get a job. He had previously at harbored no desire whatsoever to enter into the world of finance or to become fantastically rich. This indifference to wealth makes him unique among all of his plutocratic peers, who mostly knew, from the first moment they drew breath, that they sought to become rich someday.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Has a Chance to Catch Amazon

The reason so many clothing companies can never catch Amazon is because the gap is so wide they simply fall short. Amazon has been comfortably raking in well over 20 percent of all the sales in the online apparel space, and the rest of the thousands of clothing sellers have to fight over the rest. Kate Hudson’s Fabletics has been quickly closing that gap faster than any other competitor Amazon has faced, pulling down a whopping $250 million in sales in the last 36 months.

 

Hudson talks about the success of her athleisure brand by saying it has to do with high-quality workout apparel, her unique customer membership plan, and the sales process known as reverse-showrooming. To see these components all in action, we first travel to the local mall and step inside the Fabletics retail store. Take a look around and you will see women filling out the Lifestyle Quiz to get enhancements to their membership, window-shopping with no pressure from the sales associates, and women trying on everything from leggings, tank tops, to yoga pants. The part of the equation that baffles many is that many customers leave the store without buying anything.

 

If sales are not exploding at the mall stores, how is Kate Hudson’s Fabletics able to rake in over $250 million in sales in such a relatively short amount of time?

 

The majority of the revenue coming in at Fabletics is occurring at the e-commerce site. Now since these shoppers have been at the local mall and trying on all the different pieces of apparel, they eliminate the guesswork of having to assume if a pair of yoga pants or tank tops will flatter their frame. When shopping at Amazon, you assume it fits so you buy one piece to make sure, and when it arrives you ship it back until you get the perfect fit. With Kate Hudson’s Fabletics, you already know it fits you perfectly, so you simply focus on adding new exciting colors, fun new releases, without the worry things are going to be needed to be sent back time and time again.

 

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is all about spoiling their customers, so you get free shipping for all those online orders, you get discounts on many of the apparel in the store, and you even are given your very own shopping assistant. Since you took the lifestyle Quiz, your answers are analyzed by your assistant and once a month they will select a new arrival they think you will love.

End Citizens United Aims To Combat The Injustice In Political Systems In The Country

On the twenty-first of January 2017, the law was passed in the United States that has affected the course of politics in the nation to a grave extent. Citizens United V. FEC was a precedent case that was passed by the Supreme Court which allowed organizations and companies to be able to donate large amounts of money to political campaigns and parties without question. Through it seemed like a move to get more people into politics, it ended up with adverse effects on the state of governance. The ruling gave way to copious amounts of corruption in the system, whereby prominent industrialists and company owners started to use political parties as their money laundering tool. By not having their money being questioned, these people began to partake in the form of tax evasion that somehow found a way to be legal. When a person donates to a political party or a charity, they are exempted from that amount tax, thus lowering the amount that they would have to pay. However, since a lot of this money was just staying in frozen funds under the pretext of donations, only to make its way back to the donator, the ruling started backfiring on the system and the people who were affected collaterally by it.

 

That wasn’t the only downside of the ruling. Because of Citizens United, big and powerful people started donating enormous amounts of funds to the political parties in exchange for favors or positions in governance. Political parties, therefore, had to adhere to the notions put down by these people, for fear of their funds being taken away. This caused political parties and their candidates to start passing legislatures according to what these influential people wanted, and not necessarily what was in the best interest of the population of America.

 

End Citizens United is an organization that was formed to help combat these problems created by the ruling of Citizens United. A grassroots level organization, End Citizens United believes that there should be a certain amount of transparency maintained in politics, and the ordinary people should have as much say in matters of governance as people who own large corporations but don’t work for the government. They believe that individual members of the current administration have been elected solely because of this law in place. The organization is, therefore, working towards overthrowing those people and putting new qualified individuals in those roles, to better lead the political systems in the country. The issue of not having their voices heard because they aren’t rich is something a lot of people in the country face. Because of this mutual feeling of unrest, the organization has received a lot of support since it’s inception.

 

 

 

Hussain Sajwani’s Relationship With Donald Trump

When Trump won the elections, it was a pleasant surprise to see that among the invites to his celebration were Muslims, the Hussain Sajwani Family. Even when he has openly declared his hatred for Muslims by swearing to restrict immigration of people from 7 Muslim nations, he still is willing to partner with them in business. This move might be in some way a strategy to make people forget what he said about Muslims.

So, who is Hussain Sajwani and why has he captured the attention of US president Donald Trump. Sajwani is one of the wealthiest Arabs in the world. He is the owner of Damac Properties, one of the world’s most prestigious property brands.

His recent development, Damac hill was an initiative to construct Dubai’s own Beverly Hills. For this project, he contracted Trump’s company to develop the 500 hectare golf course. He wanted everything to be stately, including the golf course. In fact, this golf course is of the largest in the world. It was overseen by Tiger Woods himself.

Damac continues to develop properties in Dubai and beyond. As of today, the company has operations in a number of regions including Abu Dhabi, London, Jeddah, Amman and Doha. The company also employs 2,000 employees to coordinate its projects.

According to the Damac Owner, he would not be anywhere is he had feared to take risk. He vividly remembers when he quit his luxurious job at an esteemed company, only two years into the job. He decided that he wanted to follow his own path and make as much money as he would see contractors get paid. Learn more about Hussain Sajwani: http://www.gulfconstructiononline.com/news/story/4267

To this date, Sajwani does not regret a thing. He has been very happy with what he has achieved. Today, he boasts of a catering company that provides over 150,000 meals every day to people in Africa and Middle East. He also has a catering contract with the Central Intelligence Unit.

Sajwani is a true inspiration to entrepreneurs. His wealth has gotten him a seat with some of the most powerful men in the world. His current business relationship with Trump is hoped that it will in some way restore the trust that Muslims have in this president.

However, Hussain is adamant that he his friendship with Trump is not political, just another chance to do business to do business with a big brand.
