In the face of a global pandemic, Soren Dawody’s CBI initiative helps small island economies get back on track

The coronavirus pandemic has caused an unparalleled crisis with drastic consequences for small economies, which have fewer resources to ride out the storm. Key challenges include but aren’t limited to the devaluation of the national currency, the shutdown of small and micro businesses, and long-term social issues. Latin America, in particular, has been hit hard by COVID-19, with the Caribbean economies experiencing larger quarterly GDP contractions than in any recession. Tourism is moving at a slow pace, which in turn is significantly slowing down economic activity in the area. Things have been very disappointing until now, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Soren Dawody’s Citizenship by Investment initiative is helping the small economies of Latin America address the crisis and transition to recovery. Grenada, in particular, has been able to attract new investors, who haven’t failed to see the Caribbean country’s aquaculture potential and have greatly contributed towards improving the community’s livelihoods. The long-lived program, which was brought forward in 2013, makes it possible for the small island nation to compete in the global market in terms of shrimp and fish production. This type of agriculture supports the development of more sustainable and diverse income streams for Granada.

What does Citizenship by Investment involve?  

Citizenship by Investment (CBI) provides the chance to legally acquire a new nationality by investing in projects that are government-approved. Commonly referred to as the immigrant investor program, it’s practically a process by which affluent individuals can obtain a second citizenship without having to demonstrate years of residency. Investors enjoy business, security, and educational benefits for themselves and their families, besides the fact that they can leverage numerous tax advantages. In addition to Grenada, the countries with the most active economic citizenship programs are Antigua, Barbuda, and Saint Kitts and Nevis.

For those of you who don’t know, Soren Dawody is a sustainable development entrepreneur who constantly demonstrates altruism. To be more exact, he’s preoccupied with helping society rather than maximizing individual profits. Over the years, Dawody has facilitated public and private partnerships, encouraging foreign investment in small economies. The Grenada Sustainable Aquaculture, which represents his latest project, is a prime example of charitable leadership. It continues to spark the interest of individuals who keep on investing in the country, whose economic position desperately requires heavy investments.

In the face of a global pandemic, it’s necessary to maximize the amount of good that can be achieved. Entrepreneurs like Soren Dawody play a key role in helping small island economies recover by driving philanthropic decisions. The economic effects of foreign investments include increased productivity performance of domestic firms and, most importantly, economic growth. Shrimp farming, for instance, creates jobs, helps reduce unemployment, and equips the population with buying power. There is hope that there will be more social entrepreneurship initiatives similar to those of Soren Dawody creating favorable conditions for foreign direct investment.

To sum up, small economies have suffered as authorities are struggling to contain the coronavirus outbreak. Impossible as it may seem, they can recover from the global pandemic, yet it’s likely to be a long haul.

Below are the Burger Tips for Barbecue Success from Chef Adam Schihab

Summer and fall – and the long weekends in-between – are ideal times to fire up the grill and bring the family together for some outdoor fun.

Burgers, the quintessential barbecue fare, are among America’s all-time favorite foods. For variety, top them with unconventional fixings, such as avocado slices, arugula, salsa, and fresh basil.

For the best taste and optimum freshness, connoisseurs recommend organic ground beef.

“USDA-certified organic ground beef is made from animals that have not been injected with synthetic hormones or antibiotics, and that eat food free of animal byproducts and grown without pesticides,” said Michael Levine, president of Organic Prairie Family of Farms, one of the nation’s leading cooperatives of organic farmers and providers of organic meat.

Here are some burger-making tips from Organic Prairie.

* For best flavor, use 85 percent lean ground beef. If you choose leaner meat, add a splash of tomato juice or Worcestershire sauce to increase flavor and moisture.

* Finely mince any garlic, onions, or other vegetables that will be mixed into the meat. Larger chunks will make the burger fall apart on the grill.

* Wet clean hands prior to making the patties. The patties should be formed loosely, not packed or pressed, and should be about one-half-inch thick and slightly wider than the bun.

Try this Mediterranean-inspired burger recipe at your next family barbecue.

If you are as busy as most people you are always looking for ways to feed your family in convenient, fast, yet not-too-expensive ways. Here he is giving ten tips to prepare a delicious meal:

1. Cooking several meals for the week at one time. It may take a few hours of your time upfront but will pay off in the long run when you come home each evening and have a meal ready to eat in a short amount of time. Try cooking a roast and using part of it as a main meal and then using some for sandwiches, beef stroganoff or as part of a stir-fry. Fry several pounds of hamburger and make a casserole, taco meat and chili to freeze for use later in the week.

2. After you return home from the grocery store clean all the fruits and vegetables you can. When it’s time for a meal all you will have to do is cook them or add them to a salad or soup.

3. Get ideas from the cooking shows on T.V. There are great shows that show you how to make a healthy meal in a short time.

4. Develop a revolving recipe file. If you get bogged down by the idea of having to plan 30 meals a month the recipe file is for you. Let family members choose some of their favorites and put the recipes in a monthly file. Flip to day five or fifteen and there is the meal just waiting to be cooked.

5. Enlist the help of the members of your family. As soon as the kids are old enough divide up the cooking responsibilities. Let everyone take turns with specific tasks or the whole meal. Pair these meals with fruit and veggies that have already been washed and cut-up and you are ready for dinner.

6. Share the cooking with friends or neighbors. I’ve known people who cook four or five of the same meal and then trade with four or five other people. This works best when people share the same basic ideas on what they like and don’t like. It’s a great idea though for a very easy week of evening meals.

7. Save coupons for those convenience things at the grocery store. They have entire entrees and dinners either fresh or frozen. Sometimes they are rather pricy but with the coupons, they are good to have on hand for an evening when everyone is running in different directions and time is of the essence.

8. It’s O.K. to eat out from time to time. Clip coupons for these occasions and if you have kids keep a look-out for the places that have special prices for children. Some of the fast-food restaurants are trying to offer item choices that are a little more healthy.

9. Many larger cities have businesses that prepare food for the evening meal. They seem expensive at first but are so convenient and available for one person or entire families. There are many menu choices and meals cooked for special diets. When you calculate the groceries you buy and the times you eat out each week, this may work for you.

10. Combine several of the above ideas into a plan that is best for you.

It is possible with a little planning to cook meals that are quick and easy without spending hours in the kitchen every day.

Entrepreneurship … A Leap of Faith and how Abdullah Almanna wants to take your 1st leap

Entrepreneurship is a multifaceted adventure that, without a doubt, closely resembles a roller coaster ride.  When you begin an entrepreneurial journey or “ride,” you are aware of the gamut of experiences, both disappointing and rewarding, that you will encounter as you undertake this challenge.

Entrepreneurial challenges are not unlike most challenges in life.  Hard work, long hours, and anxious moments are just a few of the characteristics of the journey to most successful outcomes.

Reoccurring questions often roam the business mind, and—although they may be phrased in a variety of ways—are basically centered on these four primary issues: more sales, more cash, more time, and more of the “right” people.

However, for every success, there are hundreds of failures.  The statistics are not only sobering, but downright frightening. More than half of all businesses started today will fail. The failure rate is astounding.  Take a look at recent U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data, and this is what you will discover:  After two years, across all sectors, 44 percent of all new businesses are no longer in business.  After four years, 66 percent no longer exist.  And, these survival rates don’t vary much by industry.

There are three basic ways of earning money which include trading time for money, trading money for money and trading expertise/value for money.

Society and the formal education system promote the first method of earning money which involves trading time for money.  In other words, you work for someone else for a specific amount of time and then they pay you.  Working for someone else drains your energy and you don’t make much money.

The second way to earn money is utilized by a small portion of the population and involves trading money for money.  In other words, you are earning money through investing.  Investing can be risky because if you lack additional funds then how can you invest any money in the first place?  Therefore, many people can’t even try this option because they only have enough money to pay their bills.

The third way to earn money is the best option.  This entrepreneurial option involves trading expertise/value for money.  This is the strategy of entrepreneurial experts.  You have a flexible schedule, work less, and earn more.  You can make thousands of dollars a day in this option.

In order to earn money through trading expertise/value for money you need to first figure out who you are and what you can give to others.  What information do you know that could help others?  You can find value from previous work experience or even from your hobbies.  From this you can create your intellectual property.

Published book for digital nomads, Abdullah is sharing what he considers the number 1 trait for success and living the lifestyle of your dreams. Also in his new book includes a 5-question action plan to get people on the path to choosing where they want to go. This can often be the most challenging for up-and-coming business owners as well as full-time employees that want to change their path in life. Answering these fundamental questions and getting very specific about where you want to go, and taking on acting on it, can make all the difference.

And with his background in public accounting and investing, Almanna’s new book covers the important steps people can make towards their own financial freedom – applying the methods he has used to get to where they want to be.

Don’t let societal beliefs stop you.  The intellectual property market is wide, diverse, and ready to fill your pocketbook.

The Sultan in an interview about “Monsters”, his love for Halloween and integration through music

Dear Music Lovers,
With Monsters the Hamburg singer The Sultan released his latest work in style of the spooky season. The single is not only a must-have for every Halloween playlist, but also convinces between the lines. As an oriental sultan in a turban, he sings and dances like a Western pop star and thus unites two cultures that are particularly close to his heart. We have now spoken to the Sultan of Pop in an interview about his new single Monsters and why his art contributes to inclusion and integration. We are happy to make the interview available to you royalty-free.


Video: The Sultan – Monsters

As pop sultan you have created a unique music project. What does it mean to you to combine Eastern and Western influences?
The Sultan: It’s about combining the best of both influences into one positive concept. I have always been good at finding common denominators. At home we used to live oriental values, among friends and at school I adapted to the Western culture. That’s how I got to know and love both sides and therefore I know exactly how to convey this feeling of unity in an entertaining way. The Sultan of Pop is supposed to make people curious – I mean, a guy with a turban who sings and dances like a Western pop star?Through my unique modern oriental style I want to bring people of different cultures and different ages together. The whole thing is presented with a big wink, so that my art stands for inclusion and integration. In the long run I want to make The Sultan an experience and thus a kind of paradise world, where everyone can dive into and be motivated. My music is like a flying carpet that takes you there.
Your new single is called “Monsters” and is the Halloween hit par excellence. What was your motivation for making the song?
The Sultan: In the style of the 80s and 90s, such as Michael Jackson’s legendary thriller mini-musical, I wanted to create a Halloween song that would put people in a good mood and carry them away. In the music video we playfully deal with the topic of fear: After all, the biggest “monster” we can encounter in everyday life is our own insecurities, nightmares and “one’s weaker self”.
Do you have a soft spot for the creepy season?
The Sultan: I have always celebrated this day, even though the American trend has long gone unnoticed in Germany. I’m terribly happy that Halloween also plays a significant role in Germany today. In fact, the Sultan of Pop was also created at a Halloween party. I dressed up as the Sultan like in Aladdin and became the star of the evening.
You’ve created a great music video with zombies. How was the production for you and what is behind the idea of the video?
The Sultan: I‘ve had pictures and ideas for the realization of the video right from the beginning of the song and wanted to combine the coolness of the 90s with today’s technology and quality. And the focus is on The Sultan as a modern oriental figure. The music video was produced very elaborately: We worked on different sets and shot almost 24 hours in a row. Nevertheless, all team members were fully motivated and after each scene it was a great pleasure to see the first pictures on the camera monitor, close together. The team was simply great!
With your music you are mainly in the pop sector. Are there other genres that influence you in your songwriting?
The Sultan: I’ve completed my Master of Arts in innovation studies, so thinking outside the box is in my blood. I grew up with pop, RnB and gospel, but I know no boundaries in music genres, and I get inspired by all influences, such as classical, rock or EDM.
How does the development process from a song to the final release look like for you?
The Sultan: It is totally different, I don’t have a fixed schedule. Sometimes I just play a note or a chord on the piano and continue to develop the sequence. For “Monsters” I first had a melody in my head, then I spun a chorus to it, very intuitively. The rest of the song was created around the Halloween theme.
How do you continue after “Monsters”? Do you already have new songs in planning?
The Sultan: I do have new songs and themes in the pipeline, but I don’t want to give too much away yet. Of course, I want to produce a new music video for every project. I’m pretty sure that you will like the next songs as much as “Monsters”.
The single “Monsters” by The Sultan is available on all download and streaming portals. Purchase link:: thesultan.lnk.to/monstersFurther information about The Sultan (Bio, cover, press photos) can be found in the press lounge: www.macheete.com/presse/the-sultan and on www.thesultan.com

Former Asset Management Owner Charged for financial issues

In a case involving a generous client and a “$10 million yacht,” federal prosecutors unsealed an indictment accusing a former hedge funder of fraud, conspiracy and obstructing justice.

Alex Ojjeh, 33, headed United States operations at the publicly traded AOAM management, according to the 10-count indictment filed under seal on August 2020.

The hedge fund has been under scrutiny for several months by federal prosecutors. In September 2020, AOAM agreed to pay $100 million to settle allegations that it bribed officials to get an edge on mineral oil rights in Africa. In that instance, the SEC requested an additional $199 million.

In an email Friday, an AOAM spokesman said: “The charges in the case against Alex Ojjeh do not pose any new problems for the firm, he has been excluded from the firm that has settled the matter.” An attorney for Ojjeh was not immediately available for comment.

Ojjeh was in charge of setting up two ventures to invest in Africa gas and oil interests.

In the United Kingdom, an unnamed private foundation decided to invest $200 million in one of those trusts.

Some oil company shares were sold to an unidentified co-conspirator who owed $10 million to Ojjeh for a luxury yacht. According to the 21-page indictment, the co-conspirator was to use the proceeds from the selling of shares in Ltd. to pay off Ojjeh, who failed to report that.

Prosecutors said that Ojjeh and the co-conspirator backed a document to cover up the deal, and last year Ojjeh confessed to law enforcement during grand jury hearings. Ojjeh and others are being alleged, of an extensive corruption scheme to win business in Dubai.

A cease-and-desist order imposed against Ojjeh and the bribes involved assistances from the autonomous wealth fund of the Dubai Investment Authority and attained arms and mining rights in Africa.

CEO Alex agreed to pay $1.2 million as part of that settlement, and the prosecution said it would assess a drawback against Frank at a deferred date.

Without granting or denying that they turned a blind eye to the red flags and threats involved with the deals, both consented to the subpoena, refused to ensure proper accounting of the sales, and refused to put measures in place to avoid the occurrence of any bribes.

Frank Moen is charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and investment advisor fraud, wire fraud and investment adviser fraud, conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruct justice, and materially false claims in the 10-total indictment unsealed on Thursday. It wants felony penalties, as well.

Key tips that will help a rap artist be successful

Every struggling rap artist dreams of being talked in the same bracket as Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Tupac among others. But what those struggling rap artists don’t know is that you cannot be successful overnight. Those rappers that you see today bragging about their money, they have gone through immense struggles to get to where they are today. However, what every rap artist should know is that the duration it takes for them to reach the top can often be determined by the provisions that they have. Most upcoming rappers don’t even realize that such things exist.

Here are some of the key tips that will help you accelerate your career in music so that you can become a successful artist over time.

  1. Arrange a studio

If you’re an upcoming rap artist, you will need a place where you can practice and hone your skills. Now you don’t need any fancy commercial studio as you see in movies. Even an isolated room or a soundproof bedroom with a microphone and a laptop will be good enough. Make sure you have got yourself some good rap beats. Practicing in isolation will help you concentrate and sort out your mistakes. Additionally, you can also practice at your own pace and decide your schedule.

  • Find a mentor

Succeeding in the rap industry can be a challenging task unless you have someone to guide you. A mentor will help you overcome obstacles that are normally experienced by rappers. They will make things easier for you since they’re well connected in the industry and have connections with producers and record labels. In fact, it is advisable to seek mentorship from someone who is already successful in the rap industry.

  • Network and get in touch with a promoter

If you’re a rising talent, chances are you don’t have too much time on your hands to promote yourself. It is advisable that you improve your connections and get in touch with a reputable promoter. They will know the industry thoroughly and will help you hunt for gigs. Your promoter will handle everything from organizing your gigs to keep a performance diary to negotiating for fair pay.

  • Develop a website

These days, it is important for any brand to have a website. Music is a business and you are your own brand. Developing a website will help you reach more people and get your music across more people. Additionally, you can also alert your fans that you have upcoming events and tickets are for sale. You can either learn to develop a website or you can hire a trusted web designer to develop a website for you.

  • Don’t stop practicing

As an upcoming rapper, you should never stop practicing. If you don’t practice regularly, you’ll find it hard to improve your performances. Practicing daily helps build up confidence and also improves the flow of lyrics. You can be more creative and experiment with new flows. Experimenting while practicing is good because people love artists who have a unique identity.

Miss Fafah – Entrepreneur, Creator and Visionary

My name is Clemence N. Famen, or as everyone likes to call me, Miss Fafah. I’m an entrepreneur, motivational speaker, creator and visionary. My passion is to empower and inspire women to break free from fear, complacency and expectations in order to make their dreams a reality.

As a young girl growing up in Cameroon, Africa, I never had a voice. In our culture, girls are taught to keep quiet and hide our feelings, even if they’re suffering internally. We couldn’t share our stories and we couldn’t talk about our dreams, goals or hardships. Growing up with this suppression I felt so worthless and lost, but I was about to learn and face my true potential.

In 2007, when I was just 21 years old, I moved to the U.S. and saw how free people were to live their dreams, discover their passions and share their stories. Everything felt limitless and I was ready to take full advantage of every opportunity presented to me.

I was ready to build my empire.

By 2010, I started a service-based company specializing in makeup artistry and hair braiding. In 2015, I went back to Cameroon to train women as makeup artists to support themselves and give them freedom to express themselves. I was one of the first to bring makeup and artistry to the women of Cameroon. I had the pleasure of coaching 600 women in far more than just makeup — I taught them how to run their very own business and advocate for themselves.

It wasn’t something I had planned — it was pure passion.

Finally, in 2019, I launched my own vegan makeup line. With my Affirmation Eye Shadow Palettes, I want to remind women to speak life into themselves every day as they put on their makeup!

Today, I am continuing to spread the message of confidence and empowerment to as many women as possible. I believe that with positivity and determination, we can do anything we put our minds to!

Expert Author Patrick Ratchford – Building Courage to Improve your Personal Life

Congratulations for finding this article. If you follow the 3 simple keys that will follow, your journey through this adventure we call life will be quite rich and fulfilling. So let’s get right to it, shall we? Something to do, something to love, something to hope for.

How do we define something to do? A job, business, career, a hobby you decide for yourself how you define that in your life, and in many ways it may be forever changing. That’s fine, remember we said this is a journey.

Something or someone to love and we’re not talking about that business or job either. We are discussing someone or something separate from that area of your life. A friend, relationship, or pet and identify what suits you at this stage of your life. Develop and refine that love, from right where your at this moment.

Lastly, Something to hope for. A better or more interesting job, business, career, hobby, and perhaps even love.Because remember this is a journey, which means the landscape will change throughout the trip in many areas of your life. But also it means that your hopes can be fun as well as practical. Be bold and go for that ideal relationship, car, house, vacation, or business. Just remember your hopes! Not the hopes of others. This is not to say that a relationship can not share these three keys or if willing compromise these keys if all are in agreement. But for this segment, we are discussing you as an individual and just you. May your journey continue.

When you build courage, you start to improve your personal life. Building courage will help you take risks to a brighter future that you ordinarily would not take. When you build courage, you put fear behind you. courage is the process of admitting that you have fears, yet you are willing to find a way to defeat those fears and not allow these fears to take control of you. It is ok to experience your fears at appropriate times. For instance, if a bus is heading in your path, swerving you have a right to fear. There is nothing wrong with healthy fear. The problem is you have to put healthy fear in its place and unhealthy fear out of your life.

Once you build courage, you will learn to self-direct you in life. You will learn to accept punishment and rewards gracefully. A courageous person will often feel motivated to accept blame and responsibility while reviewing their actions and using what they learn to move forward. Courageous people will step to the front, rather than stepping back when opportunities come their way. On the other hand, a courageous person will step back and take a view at his or her mistakes gracefully.

Sometimes the courageous person is spontaneous. It is never good to plan each day because no one knows what the next day will bring in. Think about it. How many times have you planned something all to see it shatter in your face the next day? For instance, I plan to go to the ballgame tomorrow. Come tomorrow a blizzard, hurricane, tornado, wind storm, or rainstorm could change your mind. You planned, but did you plan for the weather. Did you make a backup plan in case your first plan failed? As you can see, planning is not always in your favor, which is why courageous people are sometimes spontaneous.

A person willing to improve their life will relax. This person will relax even when plans fail. For instance, if it stormed the next day the person will find something else to occupy his or her time and feel just as happy about joining this adventure.

To become successful and improve your life you will need to learn how to trust you. When you trust you, you can trust others as well. Unfortunately, we live in a world where trust is hard to find, yet when you trust you, you can’t blame others when things go wrong.

Improving your life includes using your creative and critical mind. When you can create new ideas, you are off to the road to success. You have many options in this world, it takes you to pull up resources to find those options.

Sometimes in life, we feel uncomfortable. In fact, this is common. Are you willing to accept your discomforts? Perhaps at an interview, you feel misplaced. Are you willing to accept this discomfort and find a way to deliver a good speech to impress the interviewer? Alternatively, are you willing to allow negative energies to cost you the job?

Do you accept it? 
Do you accept the things you cannot change? Do you accept the things you have control over? Do you accept other people regardless of how these people act? Do you accept you for who you are? Do you accept the changes that life brings your way?

Acceptance is your key to happiness. When you can learn to accept the good with the bad, you can learn how to live happier and improve your personal life. If you cannot accept, however, well, reread this article again. 

The Treaty of Westphalia has Been Breached

How has a virus, only 100 nano-meters in diameter, disrupted our world? In America alone, almost over “114,148 deaths and ten trillion dollar losses?”

The goal of this text is to provide answers for all of the people, so that they may “ask why their government, didn’t take this more seriously?” Every citizen has a right to ask “why did you fail me”.

Due to clearance issues the source cannot be named, personal information will not be documented; however, all the information that will be managed is available for the public, meaning that anyone can find it.

In 1648, the Treaty of Westphalia was signed, achieving peace in Europe, ending seasons of war and terror. “The government is the only thing in your country, that can apply violence to the people. But in exchange to applying violence, it has a role to protect the people from violence. It failed to do that. The government loses its right to govern.”

“The primary role of your own Government is to protect its own people, and when it does not protect its own people from something like this, it has failed.”

The U.S. Government failed to protect its people by not supporting the National Health Service. A health care system that is broken. “If you do not invest in your National Health Service, you are going to end up like you are right now, with thousands of people dying from COVID-19.” “If you end up in the Intensive care unit, you have a 50% chance of survival, but if you survive, your lung function is essentially destroyed the rest of your life along with the possibility of your brain function being impaired- that’s not being publicized.”

It is important to state that the source gained knowledge and experience in this field because he  was assigned in 1999 by the U.S. Government to cover pandemics like this one.

This story is about why certain governments responded based on the first SARS1 pandemic of 2002-2004, and how they saved their populations, whilst others ignored it and let thousands of their people to die. “In 2003, a businessman contracted SARS, he recovered completely, and then, three months later, he got it again, which meant it was a new strain. He then died.”

“These viruses mutate so rapidly that even if you recover from the first episode, there are probably more than eight strains out there and if the first strain does not kill you, the next will. That information is from 2003.”

We get up every day, in front of our American Government, which tells us what we want to hear, but it turns out it is all a lie…

The source worked for the U.S. Department of Defense for more than 20 years. In 2011, he wrote a report regarding brain battlefield injuries suffered by U.S. soldiers. It showed that approximately 40% of U.S. soldiers that went to war returned with brain injuries. “The public needs to understand that. The public needs to tell the Government to do what they are supposed to do, which is, to protect its people.”

Facing the 2014 Ebola outbreak danger, the Obama administration already demanded the U.S. to be prepared for future outbreaks and assess threats before they became epidemics. Obama somehow stressed that the best way to face future pandemics is to prevent them by being ready for them, not just in the U.S., but also globally, allowing them to see the danger quickly, as well as isolate and respond to it quickly.

The U.S. Government was not ready for a pandemic. Why was it not ready? It did not prepare ahead of time.

As stated above, the source of this information worked for the U.S. Government to study pandemics like the SARS1 one and help prevent them.

In 2016, the source asked the U.S. Government to run a pandemic simulation as an exercise to demonstrate what we needed to do. “That was four years ago and the answer was no.” Now, four years later, we are facing what is called “an existential pandemic, which means that not only thousands and thousands of lives will die, but that it will cost the economy trillions of dollars.”

“Governments have given up their need and ownership to protect their own people and their economies even though they were warned. “

“Italy, has lost thousands upon thousands of people, by not approaching this as past lessons learned.” Take the UK as another example, only when the Prime Minister got sick, they acted accordingly. “He finally changed his mind and stop being like Trump and he finally said it’s real.”

How many people live in the UK? Approximately 67 million people; compare it with Vietnam, which has a population of about 96 million, but it only has 332 cases and not one death. “They are not hiding what’s going on. ” What did they do differently?

This existential pandemic could geopolitically change the earth. Other countries ignored SARS and now they are paying for it, somewhere near a trillion dollar loss. “It’s going to be huge before this is over and especially in the U.S., because we haven’t paid attention to it.“

So, what we see today is the result of a Government that ignored all the warnings, not doing what was recommended several years earlier and condemning the actual situation to absolute disaster. Governments, have given up their need and ownership to protect their own people and their economies even though they were warned. “The government should be held responsible.”

A CHAT ABOUT CHRISTINE’S NO. 1 BEST SELLER, “GET THAT JOB!”

Job interview sessions are crucial life moments. It is literally a few hours of the interviewee’s lifetime dedicated to displaying the very best of himself to hit the price -the dream job!

Beyond doubts, this process can be pretty tricky and technical at the same time. One minute, you’re sure you’re prepared to face a ‘hungry’ panel, and the next minute, you wonder how things suddenly began to go south and awry.

Most times, the truth isn’t that we were ill-prepared, not confident or sure of ourselves. It could be that we were under intense pressure to make a good impression or, most importantly, we had left out vital information pertinent to making that job ours.

Did you know that handling a standard in-person job interview requires a technique way different from handling a telephone or video interview? Also, you probably didn’t realize that no two interviews are the same, and refusing to tailor your preparation strategically to suit each organization would ruin your chances of being picked.

If you find yourself thoroughly doubting your knowledge on the above rhetorics, then Christine Reidhead did have you in mind when she wrote her best-selling book, “GET THAT JOB! Ace Your Job Interview -Every Time!”

The book is a gold mine and a go-to reference for fresh college graduates and millennials who are having a hard time building confidence and navigating the professional career world. The second session of the book answers pretty much all questions pertaining to the actual process of an interview, how you should prepare for it, and what you should do afterward.

Sometimes, interviewees come out of a session all stressed out or nursing a terrible headache due to the effects of general nervousness. As normal as we might try to make it seem, Christine’s book assures a healthy way around it. You can stroll out of a session as seamlessly as you strolled in, and yes, there’s a technique as well.

The third and the fourth section of the book, which is perhaps the most exciting and mind-blowing, addresses common interviewee mistakes you never thought existed. You never thought existed?! Well, Yes! Most times, we’re so carried away with the heat of the moment or are overwhelmed with much confidence that we commit blunders absent-mindedly.

Remember that last interview you attended where you absent-mindedly swung from side to side on the swivel chair? Well, that said a lot to the panel, for your information.

This short but explicitly written book holds the key to unlocking the job of your dreams. The author’s expertise in the corridors of professionalism birthed the need for this book, which is now a No. 1 best seller. The delectable author, Christine Reidhead, worked in the academia from 2011, after which she took a role as an Accountant with Navajo Technical University.

At the same University, she became the Director of Athletics, Wellness Center Manager, and Contracts, and also Grants Manager. Christine is currently the University’s Assistant Professor of Business and Program Manager for the Department of Transportation Grant. She is also a Business and Education Department Chair and Faculty Vice President

Now! You know Christine knew what she meant when she said, Get That Job! Don’t you?
