Ryan Reynolds has been having a lot of fun with the role of Deadpool. “The Merc With A Mouth” is a weird superhero/vigilante. The movie is a R-rated tour de force that mixes equal parts laughs and hyper-violence. Reynolds is thrilled to get a second life as a superhero. Deadpool may put the lingering bad memory of Green Lantern in the distant path.

And Reynolds graciously thanks the fans of Deadpool for their help. Per the actor, if it was not for the tireless work (and hounding) by fans, a Deadpool movie never would have been made.

The same could also be said about the Animal Rescue and Adoption Society with respect to a benefit being run by Jon Urbana. Local cats need your support, and you can figure out how to help by reading the following article at DigitalJournal.com: Jon Urbana Launches Charity Drive for ARAS.

Deadpool languished in development for 11 years. While the character has a solid following among comic book readers, the violent and insane mercenary is hardly a known hero name among the public. Fox owns the rights to Deadpool as part of its licensing agreement with Marvel Studios. This is how Deadpool appeared in the Wolverine debut solo outing.

Likely, a supporting villain role is what Fox had in mind for the character. Sure, the idea of a solo film was repeatedly tossed around in development meeting. Nothing seemed to come out of those discussions. Executives wondered why they should produce a Deadpool movie when so many other better known names are out there.

And then along came the fans. Fans built a strong enough buzz that Fox decided to give in and produce a lower-budgeted Deadpool film. On the second weekend in February, everyone will find out if the film is a hit.

 

Recently, Philip N. Diehl, the president of U.S. Money Reserve joined Enterprise Radio for an interview with Eric Dye. U.S Money Reserve is one of the leading distributors of U.S. government issued platinum, silver, and gold coins. In the interview, Diehl talked about his leadership background as the 35th director of the U.S. Mint. He elaborated on how the position qualified him to be the president of U.S. Money Reserve.
According to Diehl, U.S. Mint introduced him to the world of legal tender coins. He also managed to roll out the operations of U.S. Mint to a worldwide network thus transforming the organization into an entrepreneurial agency. On what makes him an effective leader at U.S. Money Reserve, Diehl said that he is always in constant communication with the team at the firm in order to ensure that consumers are satisfied. According to Diehl, the rewarding aspect of that is seeing the commitment each day from both the front and back office staff and having a clients satisfied with the products and services.
When it comes to U.S Money Reserve offers that appeal to customers, Diehl gives the gold, silver, and platinum coins that are backed legally by the U.S government and major mints. Recently, the firm created a system, with the IRA, which allows its clients to use gold as wealth insurance. About U.S. Money Reserve’s competitive edge, Diehl attributes it to the firm’s commitment towards customer satisfaction.
On why people should own minted silver and gold coins from the U.S Government instead of owning gold bars or bullion, Diehl notes that gold bars and bullion are not legal tenders. In addition, they are not backed by the U.S government and economy. Diehl believes that the 2008 financial crisis did have a big impact on the gold market. This is because many people turned to it as tool of storing their value, a role that it has played for many years.
Diehl led the U.S. Mint to earn the second highest score in all federal agencies in his first initiative as the Mint director. He also managed to grow the profits of the Mint. In his first year, the profits were $450 million rising to $2.5 billion in his last year. His other achievement at the Mint include the establishment of the 50 States Quarter program that turned out to be the most successful coin program in U.S. history.

Experienced people in the gold market industry established U.S. Money Reserve. The veterans realized that there was a need to combine premier customer service with expert market knowledge and trustworthy guidance necessary in buying precious metals. Some of the products that U.S Money Reserve offers include 1 OZ Gold American Eagle, Common Date $50 Buffalo Bullion and 1 OZ Silver American Eagle.

On December 30, 2015, President of U.S. Money Reserve, Philip Diehl, appeared on CNBC’s morning Squawk Box. The discussion that day was our beloved “penny.” It is felt that the expense of producing the penny outweighs its use. Diehl claims that the penny is not used anymore.

In other words, the old saying, “A penny for your thoughts” will have to be rewritten. The price for our thoughts has just gone up .04 cents per “thought”. It will have to be changed to “A nickel for your thoughts.” Somehow it loses something as the price increases.

Diehl claims that if you bend down to pick up a penny on the street today, you are getting paid less than minimum wage. Economists believe that by removing the penny from circulation will distort prices and possibly press inflation. Diehl contends that 25% of purchases are cash-based, and approximately 75% of purchases are done electronically. Therefore, very few purchases are affected by the elimination of a penny. Diehl also feels that businesses would round-down their prices. This statement can only be proven if and when we say “good-bye to the penny.” Many shoppers feel the sellers would round-up the product price, rather than round-down.

The savings to the American people when the coin is eliminated is $105 million dollars annually. The penny was once made of copper, but today the formula for this coin is 97.5 percent zinc. The penny blanks are outsourced, and of course, the actual stamping of the pennies are stamped by the United States Mint. It will be interesting to hear what will happen to all the jars and piggy banks full of pennies all over America? Containers full of pennies sitting in closets, collecting dust in the basements of homes?

Bernado Chua has a reputation as one of the top names in the direct sales industry. Chua focused his time and efforts into tea, coffee, and other products to introduce people worldwide to ganoderma. Chua has produced many successful business ventures, most notably Organo Gold.

Organo Gold was founded in 2008 in Richmond, British Columbia. Chua saw the demand to create a company that could take the ganoderma lucidum products to a higher status. After noticing the success ganoderma products have in Asia, Chua wanted to expand into the Western World. Organo Gold has a million distributors around the globe. This has allowed Organo Gold products to spread to over 35 countries. Chua is always looking for ways to improve and grow. That has allowed Organo Gold to stay ahead of the competition and expand into new territories.

Chua believes that Organo Gold’s location in Canada, a country that has a reputation for having very strict laws concerning products or businesses, gives customers comfort. All products are tested before being distributed to eliminate any risks. Chua loves educating people about the products. Chua believes that this helps forge a better relationship with consumers and distributors. Organo Gold’s products are designed to help suit many different lifestyles. The products are designed with ancient Chinese herbal remedies that have been used for centuries.

The second movie in the Magic Mike franchise is another hit from film producer and screenwriter Reid Carolin. After grossing just under $120 million on a budget of merely $14 million, it seems like most Hollywood studios would agree with that sentiment. But is the franchise’s continued success a result of just Carolin? Absolutely not! The movie’s casting was done by Carmen Cuba, would absolutely deserves just as much acclaim.

Not only did Carmen secure Channing Tatum’s return, she also signed big-name comedian Gabriel Iglesias and award-winning actress Elizabeth Banks. All three played their roles phenomenally – Channing continues to impress as the titular character, “Magic Mike.” Gabriel Iglesias returns as Tobias, a funny, larger than life frozen yogurt truck driver whose character gets into all sorts of drug-related antics. Award-winning actress Elizabeth Banks joins the cast too, immediately following her portrayal of Effie Trinket in the Hunger Games series.

It is not always the big signings that define the casting – Carmen brings great talent to the film through her signing of Crystal Hunt to play Lauren. Although a fairly niche role, Crystal portrays her Myrtle Beach goer character fantastically, as her acting lineage would certainly suggest.

Crystal has acted in a litany of acclaimed soap operas throughout her career, from Guiding Light to One Life to Live. In the former, she played the long-running character Lizzie Spaudling for three years. IMDb shows that she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy and recognized by Soap Opera Digest as a result of her consistently outstanding performance. She followed one successful soap up with another, played bad girl Stacy Morasco in One Life to Live., which won four daytime Emmys during her tenure.

Crystal definitely proved in Magic Mike XXL that she is not defined by her successful soap opera career, but she has sought to do more in her film career, highlighted by her work in an upcoming Bev Land film. Dubbed Talbot County, Crystal is given producer credit for the tribute to Hitchockian horror that is currently in post production.  Crystal can be found on Instagram, as well as her CrunchBase profile which has more information.

So who is responsible for Magic Mike XXL’s success, exactly? Though Reid Carolin certainly deserves credit, it is highly unlike he could have achieved much without the head of casting, Carmen Cuba. Only an elite few can bring in such a diverse, critically-acclaimed, and experienced cast.

 

Billionaire financial guru George Soros recently dusted off his crystal ball, peered deep inside its dark interior and predicted it looked like 2008 all over again. In his view, global markets are facing a renewed crisis similar to the financial collapse of 2008, and investors need to be very cautious. In other words, it’s déjà vu all over again.

Soros was speaking at an economic forum in Sri Lanka last week when he made his dire prediction. The first week of 2016 mirrored his words as global currency, stock and commodity markets were all trending downward. China especially was showing weakness in any sustained growth looking forward. Its sinking yuan currency only added to the concern about the strength of the world’s second largest economy.

To those who have forgotten, on April 11, 2008, Soros was quoted in the New York Times as saying. “I consider this the biggest financial crisis of my lifetime, a ‘superbubble’ that has been swelling for a quarter of a century is finally bursting.” He proved correct when the global economy did collapse later that year, triggering years of depressions and the loss of jobs among the world’s most developed countries.

Now, nearly 8 years later, Soros is warning the world that the bubble could burst again as Chinas shifts away from investment and manufacturing toward consumption and services. On Wednesday, Jan 6 of this year, nearly $2.5 trillion was wiped from the slate of global equities. Loses deepened the next day across the Asia and China was forced to halt stock trading in the middle of the day.

This isn’t the first time since the 2008 call that Soros has voiced his concern about the global economy. Speaking to a panel in Washington D.C. on September 2011, he warned the Greece-born European debt crunch was even more serious than the crisis of 2008. Only drastic action by Greece and the EU members averted a total collapse of the Greek economy.

The World Bank has taken note of the problem and cuts its forecast for 2016 global growth from 3.3%t to 2.9%. The US manufacturing ISM indicator is below the crucial 50 level at 48.2. A fall below the 45 would indicate a pending recession. China’s manufacturing PMI has fallen to the same U.S. level over the past year as the result of sluggish world trade. In short, as China turns inward as a consumer nation, the world can no longer look to the Asian economic powerhouse to fund and support their economies.

China’s Communist Party has pledged to gradually dismantle the capital controls that artificially oversee their markets and cause wide fluctuations and panic in their stock markets. Even after the People’s Bank of China cut interest rates to record lows, Chinese authorities continued to pump hundreds of billions of dollars into the economy.
Soros is not the only one forecasting a rocky road ahead for 2016 but his record of spot-on predictions that went against conventional thinking in the past has the world listening to him with a much sharper ear.

North Korea has been threatening the Western World for years. North Korea has a formidable army and has nuclear capabilities thanks to their close relationship with China. South Korea has turned into a military state in order to protect itself from the evil that exists in what North Korea calls a Democratic People’s Republic. There is nothing democratic in North Korea and the word freedom has no meaning there.

Escape is a rare event in North Korea. Those that try are usually caught and executed, but a few people do make it out and drop out of sight without saying a word about how they lived in one of the most barbaric nations on the planet. But young Yeonmi Park escape and lived, and she wanted to share her story with the world. Park recently released her book, In Oder to Live: A North Korean’s Girl Journey to Freedom. In the book, Yeonmi Park goes into detail about life in North Korea and how she was treated on a daily basis. She describes events that should never take place in any country, but as she explains horror is the norm in North Korea.

Yeonmi Park’s escape from North Korea sounds like something Hollywood would love to reproduce for the big screen. Her escape has all the elements of a nightmare that few in the order would want to live. Sex traffickers, a journey through the Gobi Desert, the death of her father and the disappearance of her sister are all very real to her, yet Park says she had to pretend they weren’t real in order to survive them.

It took two years for Yeonmi ParkYeonmi Park on theguardian and her mother to reach South Korea. During those two years she was subjected to mental and physical abuse that kills weaken people. But Park and her mother made it through the dark times.

Yeonmi Park is now a human rights activists and travels extensively to spread the word about North Korea, sex trafficking and the abuse that millions of people endure every day. Yeonmi says she will never stopping talking about her experiences because she knows her story will help others break the ties that bind them.

Urban areas and cities like Newark, New Jersey need a boost and aid after decades of urban decline due to sub-urbanization and loss of manufacturing jobs. The Newark CEDC or Community Economic Development Corporation was created to revitalize the city of Newark and attract people back to this once prosperous industrial hub.

As a non-profit organization, the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation is less concerned about corporate profits and more concerned about the people and communities it impacts in the city of Newark. The goals of the company are broad but all of its objectives have one thing in common, to improve the quality of life of the citizens who reside within the city of Newark, New Jersey.

Newark CEDC aims to revitalize Newark by bringing jobs back to the city. Manufacturing jobs may have been lost overseas, but that does not mean that new kinds of jobs in the rapidly growing healthcare, technology and energy sectors cannot replace them. The Newark Economic Development Corporation aims to bring jobs back to the city by providing businesses willing to relocate to Newark incentives such as low interest funding. Small businesses too can benefit from working with the CEDC. Programs in place include special financing and discounts for small businesses who may be struggling financially in tough economic times.

A major figure in Newark CEDC now is its newly appointed chief financial officer, Kevin Seawright. He is a leader in the minority community and has worked in both government, education and private business. His insights into these sectors and experience there can help the city of Newark progress and move forward towards a new age of prosperity for its citizens. As a leader in the minority community and being able to reach them, Mr. Seawright can also address the needs of Newark’s large minority community.

Not only is the CEDC’s newest chief financial officer highly qualified for the position, but he is very motivated to make a difference. He has completed graduate leadership programs entirely based on his own decision that it will help him and the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation achieve their objectives. Having the drive, motivation and qualification, and a career’s worth of experience to back up his decisions, makes Kevin Seawright a person to watch at the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation. It is expected that he will help the city achieve new milestones in the future.

With men like Kevin Seawright and the backing of the city government as well as other stakeholders, the Newark Economic Development Corporation is poised to transform Newark into one of the least desirable urban areas in the country to a desirable and safe community to live in. Already companies are moving to Newark and new housing is being constructed to accommodate a new influx of residents. As long as there is hope and a will to achieve something, it can be done and that story is unfolding right now in Newark, New Jersey.

If you’d like to know more, you can follow Kevin on his Twitter account, or even keep up with his career and the work of the NCEDC on his Mashable account.
