Halvorssen is the president of Human Rights Foundation that is based in New York. The foundation was launched in 2005. The 39- year old was born and raised in Caracas, and he speaks fluent American English without an accent. According to Forbes, Thor believes that human rights and individual liberty are not topics for discussion. He believes that they are at the table upon which other arguments rest.
Thor has practical knowledge on human rights. Thor exposed corruption by the government during his tenure in Venezuela’s drug czar. After the exposure, his father underwent torture in a prison in Caracas. His mother passed on after being shot during an anti-Hugo Chavez demonstration. Thor’s cousin is currently serving as a political prisoner in jail in Venezuela.
However, Thor does not spend his time playing the stereotypical activist sack. Thor does not produce sour world-weariness or become a gloomy person who loves humanity and hates people. Thor admits his love for people. He explains that he loves freedom troublemakers, defectors, and dissidents who blow at authoritarians who stand up against tyranny. Thor appointed Havel to serve as the chairperson of human rights foundation up until his death in 2011. After the death of Havel, Thor named Garry Kasparov.
The human rights foundation carries out its annual Oslo Freedom Forum. The forum has become the signature of Human Right Foundation, and it is widely referred to as a Can’t-miss event. Movers and shakers like PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel are one of the major donors of Human Right Foundation.

Jose Manuel Gonzalez is an agricultural businessman and a well-known Venezuelan Politician. He is the current representative for the Guárico State at the National Assembly. Jose also served as the president of the Venezuelan Federation of the Chamber of Commerce. He got the position as a result of his entrepreneurial talent and business prowess.He has been influential in Venezuela’s agricultural movement because of his distinguished success in the sector. Jose has talked about his experience as an entrepreneur who works as a public servant.
According to him, some government policies have led to the deterioration of the agricultural industry. He explained that the agricultural sector is in a precarious state since the country’s produce of rice and corn has declined sharply. This situation has led to a type of supply he referred to us a “roller coaster” supply since everything seems uncertain. Whatever is achieved is little and insufficient to cater for the needs of the people of Venezuela.
The Venezuelan National Assembly has failed to successfully manage the agricultural sector. Jose Manuel Gonzalez foresaw the food shortage currently happening in Venezuela and tried to inform the relevant government bodies. His efforts to raise alarm on the situation have been futile. He insists that the mismanagement practices are the reason why Venezuelans need to import food to meet the demand. Since farmers are unable to make a living form selling their crops, they prefer to export a large percentage of the produce.
The current situation has forced Venezuela to fix prices on basic commodities such as oil and flour. There is no actual incentive to produce the commodities since the producers (farmers) are underpaid by the government. As a result, farmers are opting to smuggle their goods to neighboring countries that offer fair market prices for the goods.
Jose stated that the country’s leadership needs to restore private property rights, justice and freedom. He also warned about movements that intend to increase the wages by around 50%. Such actions will destroy multiple jobs and ruin many companies in Venezuela. Jose Manuel Gonzalez also wants the government to combat the problems of extortion and kidnapping. He believes unity is the best way forward and has promised to fulfill his duty as a legislator.
Imagine living in a world where you need to pay bribes just to get to the grocery store. Sadly, the European country of Georgia had problems not unlike this one in 2004. The traffic police were hated for their seemingly arbitrary stopping of motorists to collect hefty fees and fines. Thankfully, Mikheil Saakashvili, the man who became the new president of Georgia in 2004, put an end to this practice. The result was a better country. Today, Ukraine is not unlike Georgia. There are bribes that need to be paid in order to possess a driver’s license. Ukraine needs a leader similar to Mikheil Saakashvili.
The stakes are high for a powerful leader to arrive in Ukraine. However, this leader must arrive through the Ukrainian democracy. Admittedly, the democracy in Ukraine is a slow moving one. However, if one leader or a collection of leaders can arise, they can counteract an aggressive presence from Putin. In Russia, Putin is on a countdown until he will be held responsible for Russia’s mounting economic problems. In this small window, he will strive to counteract any positive leadership in Ukraine. If Ukrainians can be convinced they are unable to solve their own problems, they will inevitably turn towards to Putin. To make matters worse, Putin is willing to help solve those problems in Ukraine with military force. Western powers will need to do everything they can to help Ukrainian leaders and to counteract any temptation for Ukraine to fall into Russia’s arms.
George Soros – Project Syndicate
This commitment from Western powers won’t be cheap and won’t come easily. To promote investment and to help Ukraine defend itself militarily, at least $15 billion will need to enter the country. This amount of money certainly can’t come from one individual. Even George Soros, an individual with wealth and a massive amount of generosity, can’t make that happen alone. However, a man like George Soros can be a leader through drawing attention to Ukraine’s mounting plight. This is something Soros continues to do, and he often puts his money where his mouth is. The question is whether or not other individuals and governments will follow his illuminating example.
The fate of the European Union is also at stake. Ukraine must be convinced to accept the economies and cultures of Western powers. If Ukraine is lured away to Russia through better offers of support or a perception of indifference from Western powers, it will hobble the European Union. Remember, Putin is no friend to the European Union. He can and will turn Ukraine against it.
Those living in Western powers should consider how much they would chafe to live in a country that required bribes to obtain a driver’s license. Afterwards, they should consider how much they would be willing to escape such a situation. People are willing to accept good and evil liberators. That is why it is so important to to invest in Ukraine. This will let those people know the good liberators are prepared to truly help and defend Ukraine.

Dick DeVos Jr., the oldest son of Mr. Richard DeVos, Sr., is, along with Jay Van Andel, the co-founder of the Amway Corporation. The Amway Corporation is a network sales company that sells its goods and services through various levels of dealers, with the final-level dealers being the consumers.
Mr. DeVos began work for the company in 1974, slowly moving up the ranks in many positions of responsibility in the company’s operating departments. In 1984, he was promoted to vice president of the company’s operations in 18 different countries, and in 1989 he left the firm to start a new business venture, the Windquest Group. Dick was involved with this company while at the same time selected by his father to manage the National Basket Association’s Orlando Magic Basketball franchise (NBA OMB franchise), which had been acquired by his family.
He returned to Amway Corp. two years later in 1993, succeeding his father as president. Under his leadership, the company would go through a restructuring in 2000, and the establishment of an umbrella firm, Alticor Corporation, which comprised of and merged the Amway Corporation, the Quixtar Corporation, and the Access Business Group into one organization. Under the Alticor Corporation, the firm prospered and expanded its operations all around the world to more than 50 countries and territories in six different continents. Mr. DeVos would retire his presidency over Alticor in 2002 to devote full time to the Windquest Group as president, and to political endeavors.
In 2006 Dick DeVos entered politics, and elected to run for governor for the state of Michigan for the Republican party. At the time he was considered the wealthiest man ever to run for Michigan governorship. He decided to use his massive reserves of wealth to his advantage, and used his own personal wealth, spending a whopping 40 million dollars, to fund his campaign. However, despite the powerful and pervasive influence of money and wealth in the political arena, it wasn’t enough to secure his spot as governor. He lost the election to Democrat Jennifer Granholm by a 14 point margin.
Mr. Devos is married to Elizabeth Prince, daughter of president of Prince Corporation’s Edgar Prince. The Prince Corporation is based in Holland, Michigan. The couple have 4 children, Rick, Ryan, Andrea, and Elissa.
Beauty writer Emily McClure with the fine, frizzy hair, had heard all about the power and popularity of the WEN hair no-lather shampoo system, and she was hoping to achieve Hollywood hair by trying it out.
So, Emily kept a daily hair diary with hair selfies to show readers how the QVC advertised WEN hair system would work for Bustle.com.
Popular LA stylist Chaz Dean had developed WEN hair, so that women and men could have another choice when it came to cleansing their hair. Regular shampoos contain harsh detergents like sulfates found in the lather that weaken strands.
WEN is a no-lather shampoo with natural, healthy ingredients that quickly restore the vitality and strength to every type of hair found in the world, it is soldon most sephora stores . Emily happens to have medium length, limp hair that gets greasy and unmanageable.
WEN advises not to skimp on their unique cleansing conditioners when using the product. The more, the better, to thoroughly nourish and cleanse the hair. Emily, however, believed that 16-24 pumps of WEN product was too excessive, so she only used the 10-pump minimum for short hair.
Would that play a role in her 7-day challenge? We are not sure.
Even with using the bare minimum of product, when Emily later blow-dried and styled her hair, her selfies show a mane of gorgeous shine and bounce. Emily’s friends also were also blown away by the gloss and movement of Emily’s hair.
During the 7-day challenge, as long as Emily kept to her daily AM WEN wash, her results were fantastic. If she skipped a wash or switched up the routine, then her hair fell flat and got a bit greasy.
Emily is a very busy woman and a bit lazy when it comes to a hair care routine and feels that WEN is a more disciplined method. Wen hair is available on Amazon.
