Somehow it has come to pass taking care of American veterans is a hardship. Those military ex-troops who have contributed to the welfare of the nation have just plain been slighted as being a problem, a drain on society, and a pain. However Brad Reifler says it will not happen on his watch as Forefront Capital Advisor’s executive officer. His company is a successful worldwide financial firm. Instead of thinking of veterans as a burden, he believes it’s a responsibility. It is an accountability one undertakes with pride and he backs his belief with three million dollars.
As the Chief Executive Officer Brad Reifler proved his words are real with a partnership he created with Easter Seals Dixon Center. Together with his financial service company and its subsidiaries he up-fronted the funds to invest in veterans’ wellbeing by offering Easter Seals Dixon Center a generous endowment. He is very vociferous about helping vets; he says military soldiers and their families have served the nation altruistically.
Subsequently, he made the choice to donate to the Easter Seals Dixon Center. All parties are delighted. In a press article the Easter Seals Dixon Center’s chairman said both parties share the same philosophy about veterans and military families. He added saying the donation will provide for specific services. It will connect veterans and military families in a positive way within their centralized community. It will promote financial stability. Moreover and most pronounced is the fact this venture will amend attitudes cultivated from stereotyping vets in a less than favorable light. This new approach plans to reacquaint veterans and military families with real solutions. The plan is to make entry into jobs, universities, and healthcare obtainable.
So who is this guardian of the forgotten soldier? He is the legacy of industrialist Ray Friedman. Ray Friedman is Brad’s grandfather and originator of Refco. Brad Reifler was a dynamo trader in his grandfather’s firm showing promise right away. Hence entrepreneurial spirit is in his bloodline. The talent for starting profitable companies is his heritage; he co-foundered Pali Capital and also made Reifler Trading Company a success business. So he has a lifetime in business. Delving deeper into his persona shows he is an intelligent and down to earth man. Educated in economics and politics makes him a savvy magnate and an international powerhouse when it comes to global investments and trading. He is a multi-million dollar gold mine. For this reason bearing in mind his expertise he presently focuses exclusively on consulting high-end clients. His clients are the elite. For a man that has elevated himself to renowned mogul and done well; he makes it a duty to umbrella many other disadvantaged groups. In Brad Reifler’s opinion veterans and military families’ securities inures from day one and is not a burden, but an honored privilege and an investment for freedom. His official website has more on the partnership, and what Forefront will be doing next.

On April 1st, 2016, the autism research charity Autism Rocks is having a concert in Dubai where Flo Rida and Tyga are set to perform. Both artists have previously performed in the city of Dubai, so they are no strangers to the area. Since April is Autism Awareness Month, the organization has scheduled a family day filled with activities, games, music, and much more. The price to attend the function is 50 AED (Arab Emirate Dirham).
Autism Rocks was founded by British millionaire and hedge fund manager, Sanjay Shah. He and his wife Usha discovered in 2011 that their youngest son had autism and from there the couple decided that awareness needed to be made. Sanjay Shah was actually inspired to start Autism Rocks by Snoop Dogg, and created the London Based, invitation-only concert based charity in 2014. Snoop Dogg had visited the couple and their children, then invited them all back to his home where Sanjay knew the best way to get people noticing is to involve active musicians and other celebrities. Concerts he has held to raise money have included artists such as Eric Clapton, Snoop Dogg, Joss Stone, Prince, and other international musicians.
Sanjay Shah and his wife Usha have three children; one daughter and two sons. The Shah family currently reside in Dubai.

The Slyce Link technology released recently on November 25th 2015 is Slyce’s answer to proprietary retail technology. Image recognition technology provides users with visual product recommendations when using the retailer platform. This technology is purposely built in order to enhance sales in e-commerce applications. The technology has proven difficult to make and has therefore been in the development phase for longer than a year. Finally November 2015 saw it released for beta testing which is being done by a major retail outlet that has provided the solution to its customers on a testing basis. The online purchasing journey for the customer is a highly complicated one and there are strategic points within that journey where certain product recommendations allow for added benefits. These added benefits are the reduction in people abandoning the purchase journey due to the fact that they have not found the specific item that they are searching for.
This will also increase sales as more products can be purchased by the customer. It is a similar principle to the isle we walk through when we leave the grocery store. Strategically most grocery stores funnel customers into an isle filled with snacks in order to get them to purchase something on the way out. This is the same for Slyce Link but on an online basis. This technology is available in Java Script code and native software development kits as well as functioning on both Android and iOS platforms. The integration process is very simple as with most of Slyce’s technology it can be embedded within the existing platform with the simple copying and pasting of code. As well as making the user interface completely customizable to the clients specifications. Ensuring data consistency there is a product feed processing mechanism, search logic that ensures data consistency as well as an image match engine all placed on the back end of the system.
The celebrity conscious world we live in often sees public appearances made by music, acting, and sports stars with government figures from around the globe. The Human Rights Foundation has recently used the appearances by global stars in closed societies to publicize the issues facing the people living under a strict regime; in the past, the group headed by film producer Thor Halvorssen has raised awareness of trips made at the request of dictators from around the world by rapper Nicki Minaj and soccer star Lionel Messi.
Thor Halvorssen has been a major force in the human rights community for a number of years, and formed his own Human Rights Foundation in 2005 to bring awareness to the problems facing people in the 21st century. Halvorssen has developed a successful career as a film producer in Hollywood, but also works with a number of groups to assist in promoting the human rights of those who have had them stripped away.
The work of Thor Halvorssen has not been limited to his role with the Human Rights Foundation, but has also seen the activist take a leadership role in assisting young people in taking their first steps into an activism role. Following the launch of the Human Rights Foundation the Venezuelan also launched the Oslo Freedom Forum and the Children’s Peace Movement. The Oslo Freedom Forum has proven a particular success for the University of Pennsylvania graduate since it has been attended by global activists with established and growing reputations.
Thor Halvorssen has looked to use his position within the media to make people aware of the missteps taken by a number of celebrities; the film producer has written open letters to stars calling upon them to change their travel plans to known closed societies. A Christmas performance by Nicki Minaj in Angola is perhaps the best known event in the history of the Human Rights Foundation because of the stance the charity took over her performance for a well known dictator.
