George Soros and EU Asylum Policy

In an interview released on CNBC, there were many topics discussed in relation to the EU. It is established that the EU is getting ready to collapse and there is also the decision for Europe to take in refugees from countries. One thing George Soros has advocated was the development of an asylum policy in order to ensure that the refugees reach the country in an orderly manner. Not only does this keep the refugees safe, but it also allows Europe to absorb them into the country. There is also plans to keep the migrants out of Europe. However, there are concerning issues about the proposal.

One thing that is disturbing is that Orban is winning the conflict with his plan to keep the migrants out. In fact, it was an easy victory for him. He is also winning the battle in Europe. Right now, he is gunning for the leadership of Europe by taking it away from Angela Merkel. He has launched a campaign in September of 2015. He has received assistance from Horst Seehofer. One tactic that he does is to launch an attack on the values which originally formed the European Union from a multitude of angles.

Putin, who works with Orban is even going further to advocate some kind of rule that has been outdated for a while. This is the rule of force. The good news is that Angela Merkel is fighting this battle with a sense of seriousness and heaviness which will give the refugees a chance. George Soros is also working in her support. He believes not only in advocacy, but also in making contributions. Soros also has a plan to help with the financial contribution to the campaign with the use of long-term bonds and other resources.

As one could see when reading the interview about the issues that Europe is facing and the situation with the refugees, there is a heavy battle being fought for the lives of these refugees. A lot is being sacrificed in the face of harsh adversity on account of those refugees. The EU is about to collapse as well as the principles that held it up. With Angela Merkel putting in a lot more effort in her fight against the opposition to the open society and asylum policy, George Soros does feel a little bit of comfort about the situation. However, he does know that it is going to be a hard battle to win.

White Shark Allows Clients To See AdWords Campaign Process Every Step Of The Way

If you are really good at what you do then you don’t have anything to hide. Take an artisanal baker, for instance. If you are a great baker and you use only the freshest, most inviting ingredients then you may want to make your baking a display in your store. Putting up viewing windows or installing an open kitchen in your bakery would allow people to watch. They would star in mouthwatering awe as you decorated a cake or whipped up the ingredients for a delicious frosting. The baking process itself would be a draw and help your bakery’s sales. You are good at what you do and you don’t have anything to hide.

But now think of a processed foods plant that creates cakes in a factory. The giant vats and the chemical laden, processed foods aren’t all that appetizing. That company would now want customers touring their plant and that company would fight against food labeling laws in a effort to hide certain ingredients. They definitely have something to hide.

Both of these vendors are trying to sell you cake. One would love to show you how it is done and the other tries to hide the cake making process from you. Which would you chose? I think the choice if pretty clear.

That type kind, friendly, transparent business practice is what White Shark Media offers to its clients, but instead of cake they are selling effective AdWords campaigns to small- and medium-sized businesses.

Instead of hiding behind the confusing technical jargon of the internet, they offer an “open kitchen” type of customer service. They give you the keys to your own tracking software that tells you in real time just how well the campaign is going. They give you a communications representative with their own extension that is always available for questions, recommendations and criticism. They communicate to you in laymen’s terms the intent of their campaign strategies before they implement them so you know exactly where your business is headed online. And they update you every month through a virtual meeting.

This has all come about over the years as White Shark Media has listened to criticism from clients. Instead of getting negative about it, the Adwords company turned the criticism into a positive business model with full transparency, and this serves the client well.

You essentially get to see your campaign being made. White Shark Media hides nothing from you so you see every ingredient that is put into your campaign. And when you know all the ingredients, you know if the product will be worthy of your business. Some companies create their campaigns in secret behind closed doors, but White Shark puts their good work on display.

Shopping Made Easy with Image Recognition Technology- Snap, Search, Purchase

Have you ever seen someone wearing an item that you just fell in love with, but had no idea where to go to find the item? A new technology is entering the mainstream on technologyreview.com that will make it easy to find that shoe, dress, vase or even lipstick shade.

Nieman Marcus, Shoes.com and others are experimenting with the technology that could help them boost sales, while helping consumers shop for the products on their wish list. The technology has been in the works for years but previous versions didn’t live up to expectations.

Slyce is an image-processing technology that was developed by artificial-intelligence startup Sentient, that enables consumers to snap a photo of the item they’d like purchase, information then comes back that matches the product along with information on where the item can be purchased. For instance, let’s say you see someone with a unique purse, but you don’t know the person and are hesitant to ask where they got it. All you’d have to do is snap a photo of the item and information will pop up showing print catalogs, magazine ads and online stores where the product or similar products can be found.

Slyce’s visual searches can utilize 1, 2 and 3-D images which may include real world scanned actual product images as well as product tags, print materials, bar codes, QR codes and even coupons. When using product image, the consumer will get product matches as well as similar products. Print materials and product tags will return product matches and where the items can be purchased online while barcodes, QR codes and coupons will connect the buyer directly to the product and product information.

With the ever evolving use of computers, cell phones and other technologies developed to make consumers live easier and enhance the purchasing experience, new visual search technology is the next generation of purchasing in the evolving retail environment. With more and more retailers adopting this new technology, soon all buyers will have to do is snap, search and purchase.
