Dollars Versus Syrian Humanitarianism – Is There a Return on Investment?

14I strongly believe that allowing more refugees to move to the United States – a solution that would certainly work, would carry little in the way of short-term financial costs, and would likely provide a powerful boost to the US economy and drastically increase the living standards of Syrians who are able to relocate.

If we’re actually serious about helping Syrian people – both people who’ve stayed and refugees – it’s not enough to identify an intervention that seems like it could make things better and then declare that it’s the only viable solution. You have to compare it with alternative plans, and see which produces the most good at the least cost. And it’s very, very hard to argue that the kind of intervention that could have plausibly prevented the bloodshed of the past four years would have done more good, at lower cost, than simply issuing green cards to every Syrian who wants one – or even issuing them to just 1 million, or 500,000 – and providing airlifts to bring people here.

The potential benefits to Syrians are enormous. For one thing, we would avoid the huge humanitarian toll associated with existing refugee migration.

Obama Has Earned Our Respect!

13For the next week or so there’s going to be some rock ’em and sock ’em politics happening in Washington. The Healthcare Bill is now being pushed forward by both Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Obama. It has been around for a year or so without passage.

Obama has been a man of singleness of purpose for it’s passage. He knows that over 61% percent of Americans and some polls say 66% plus (a clear 3 to 1 margin) are against it’s passage in it’s present form of 1990 to 2074 pages long (it depends on what version, the house or Senate). Also, he is well aware that he’s shoving this down the throats of Americans for their own good. The commander in chief is a man of great tenacity. He said along the lines of that he would rather be a one term great president than a two term turkey.

And if elected that he would transform this country. Should anyone dislike his metamorphosis than they can in effect vote him out of office. Therefore he is willing to sacrifice his political office and those of his fellow democrats, the wishes of the American people, and even the U.S. Constitution if necessary to pass his platform (from which many of you rightfully and knowingly elected him upon). He is a man of destiny. No matter what one thinks of him (either pro or con) you have to respect his idealism. How many men have the Charisma to get other men in effect to commit political suicide (or end their political careers). What sacrifice these other men are willing to go through to pass this Mein Kampf (My Struggle) of a Healthcare Bill is astounding.

I could at long last declare, my earlier childhood days friend was true… Nintendo beats Sega. =)

I am a 33-twelve months-out of date millennial, top quality, who launched my own, personal investing advisory rehearse after years at Ameriprise Capital (AMPF) and UBS (NYSE: UBS ). We do not own any present generating online video media consoles nor do you ponder myself a online gamer. Another system I bought has been a Sega Dreamcast about 10 years in the past, on clearance. So whenever two or three days past my lovely wife asked if I read nearly anything about some Pokemon thing to do that her Fb timeline was littered with, I sincerely possessed no clue, replied “No” and moved on. On the upcoming 1 day I needed examined a lot of Pokemon Go content articles on television, radio stations and news paper; a multitude of articles or blog posts on Facebook; and testimonials in the real world from neighbors that I did so not know received played out computer games. What totally had me by wonder was statements as an example “Nintendo obtained virtually the whole business cap of Youtube seeing that creating Pokemon Go,” and “Pokemon applied as numerous users in five moments while it had Instagram across a season you need to do.” This type of immense claims have been too big to successfully pass up looking into and so i had the leap and obtain Pokemon Go and dedicated the other 2 days participating the game. Whatever I know now could be… it’s “Substantial.” I am going to talk over in future articles or reviews the key affects that this gameplay can aquire culturally, which include pushing health and fitness and emotive wellness around young children, but for now I wanted to target the monetization from the Pokemon Go, apart from in-application orders in mobile app development, of the fact that majority have disregarded or determined to disregard.

5 Monetization Variables Which Are Not Really being Thought Of

1. Sponsored “PokeSpots” and “Gyms”

The Politice of Military Life

12We must remember that our military is a microcosm of society so all of the quirks of society are also found in all branches of the armed services. Yes the military is different in many ways than the civilian world but it is composed of people, and people do the same things both in and out of the military. I for example have seen glowing news stories about how studies had been done to show that the military is less racist than the civilian world. To that let me say both yes and no at the same time. Racism permeates all classes, races, and creeds of people in our society. I have found that racism is less prevalent among lower ranking military persons and higher among senior ranking officers and NCO’s. Lower ranking enlisted personnel generally come from the strata of the civilian world which is known as the working class and below.

There is a larger mixture of races and ethnicities in the lower ranks of the military. Troops at this level are used to interacting and communicating with each other. They may have prejudices but they have fewer prejudices because they deal with people of other races each day. They are more apt to know what social barriers to interaction or communication are and how to work around them to get the job done. In addition many of them are not necessarily career soldiers so they are not competing for advancement. Many have joined the military so that they can take advantage of the benefits that it offers. They are not interested in punching the career ticket and are less likely to get involved in political gamesmanship.

Those in the officer corps and senior enlisted personnel are career minded and will do whatever they have to in order to keep their career intact. Therefore they are more apt to play the political games that they feel are necessary in order to progress. Usually the military has to get rid of people during the time immediately following a war or conflict. When this happens regulations get stricter which cause an increase in the political gamesmanship required to advance through the ranks. The military is a large and impersonal organization so the people who may have to make the decision on whether you are allowed to remain in the service or be eliminated don’t know you at all. They simply have your records to review. If you can get them to believe that you are worth keeping then you should have no retention problems.
