FOCUS ON SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY : THE "HOMELESS" BILLIONAIRE ....

The New World of Nicolas Berggruen





He arrived in the United States as a teenager and grew up to make billions. Now he’s giving away his money to rebuild America—and the world.











By Richard Bradley




→ Nicolas Berggruen leads an unusual life. The part that grabs most people’s attention, at least at first, is that he is a very wealthy man, reportedly worth over $2 billion, but he doesn’t own a home and has very few material possessions. 



What may be more unusual about Berggruen is what he has decided to do with his life and his wealth: undertake a global campaign to reform democracy and promote economic prosperity.







Interesting people often have interesting parents, and Berggruen’s were fascinating. His father was a journalist who fled Germany in 1936 when his editor informed him that, due to his Jewish surname, he could no longer use his byline. Settling in San Francisco, Heinz Berggruen started writing art criticism for the San Francisco Chronicle, then enlisted in the American military and was…

EURO MARKET : Costco iniciará su implantación en Europa continental desde Sevilla ...

| 08.04.2013




De la mano de Bogaris Retail, Costco Wholesale abrirá en Sevilla su primera tienda en Europa continental, pues ya tiene presencia en Reino Unido. La apertura está prevista para diciembre del 2013 en el parque empresarial Ciudad de la Imagen e irá acompañada de los proyectos de McDonald’s y de Bricodepot en Sevilla (ver información aquí). La tienda tendrá una superficie de 13.500 m2.





En el artículo de Europa Press del 7 de noviembre del 2012 (aquí) se expresa cuál será la actividad que Costco ejercerá en esta tienda:


 “...se dedicará a la distribución minorista de productos de calidad y naturaleza diversa”. Pero la actividad real de Costco y única hasta ahora es la distribución al por mayor, es un cash and carry, bajo el modelo de Club de Precios. Digamos que su actividad es similar a la de Makro, una tienda para profesionales (autónomos y sociedades), donde además de las compras para su negocio se pueden adquirir productos para consumo particular. Las diferencias iniciales …

William Li: Can we eat to starve cancer?

Speakers William Li: Cancer researcher




William Li heads the Angiogenesis Foundation, a nonprofit that is re-conceptualizing global disease fighting.




Why you should listen to him:

Many of society’s most devastating diseases -- cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s, to name a few -- share a common denominator: faulty angiogenesis, the body’s growth of new capillary blood vessels. Given excessive or insufficient blood vessel growth, serious health issues arise. While researching under Harvard surgeon Judah Folkman, who pioneered the study of angiogenesis, Li learned how angiogenesis-based medicine helps patients overcome numerous diseases by restoring the balance of blood-vessel growth.





Li co-founded the Angiogenesis Foundation in 1994. The foundation’s Project ENABLE -- a global system that integrates patients, medical experts and healthcare professionals -- democratizes the spread and implementation of knowledge about angiogenesis-based medicines, diet and lifestyle. Som…

ALBA : THE TOTALITARIAN EXTORSION RACKET OF THE AMERICAS ....

Sean Penn Biting the Friendly Hand ???

Posted by Editor on May 30, 2013

In an important turn-around, the famed actor Sean Penn has called for the country of Bolivia to be excluded from the Dakar sports racing meet if American citizen Jacob Ostreicher is not allowed to leave Bolivia. 



The normally pro-leftist Penn pretty much defends some of the shannigans of so many leftist regimes like Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Cuba. 


But in this instance he may be having a change of heart because of what happened to Mr. Ostreicher.






And what happened to Mr. Ostreicher was truly criminal and anti-yankee prejudice at its most base. 




Jacob Ostreicher went to Bolivia with the best of intentions. He wanted to help the people of Bolivia by investing in a rice agricultural venture with some Bolivian business people. 




Then he was arrested by the Bolivian authorities for extortion. 




The Bolivian government claimed that Ostreicher had embezzled the money from the project he had invested in.

FALSELY ACCUSED : An American Held Hostage in Venezuela ...

Posted by Editor on May 16, 2013

By: Daniel Nardini







It seems that there is a growing number of rogue countries that are using U.S. citizens as hostages, as bargaining chips against the United States. There is Cuba holding Alan Gross. There is North Korea holding Kenneth Bae. 




Now Venezuela is holding a man named Timothy Tracy on the ever ambiguous charge of “fomenting post-election violence on behalf of the U.S. government. 



Timothy Tracy, a documentary video photographer, lives in California and was educated at Georgetown University. 





Among his documentaries were “American Harmony” about competitive barbershop quartet singing, and “Under Siege” about terrorism and smuggling across the U.S.-Canada border. His whole style is based on people telling their stories as part of the big picture.






This is what he was trying to do in Venezuela as well. 



He wanted people to tell their stories from both sides of the recent presidential election. Tracy had no real interest in siding with the government n…

EL MASBURRO LLAMA AL CONEJO OREJON : ¡ Qué ironía ! ... MaMaduro habla de traidores ...

Posted: 01 Jun 2013 08:19 AM PDT


Por Carlos Vilchez Navamuel



El pasado 31 de mayo el periódico colombiano SEMANA titula una información con unas palabras sacadas de un comentario pronunciado por el presidente venezolano impugnado, Nicolás Maduro que dice: “El que admire a Colombia que se vaya para allá”





En su cantinflesca forma de hablar dijo: 
“Colombia es el paraíso que debería ser Venezuela… Venezuela es Venezuela y punto, a la venezolana y Colombia, que sea Colombia.” 



Añadió posteriormente: 


“El que quiera irse a vivir su modelo neoliberal y lo admire mucho que se vaya para allá”. 


Dijo que le daba “repugnancia” que la oposición venezolana hubiera llegado “admirada”
http://www.semana.com/nacion/articulo/el-admire-colombia-vaya-para-alla/345030-3








La información nos dice que también amenazó a Capriles y a la oposición venezolana y que manifestó que aunque él no era la Fiscalía y el poder judicial, las personas que habían viajado a Bogotá y que ahora querían viajar a Lima habían cometido ev…
