Thor Halvorssen’s Focuses on Freedom

No Comments »

Thor Halvorssen has parents from well-known lineage. His mother, Hilda Mendoza, is a descendant of Venezuela’s first president. His father was an ambassador for anti-narcotic affairs as well as a special oversees investigator and his grandfather was a Venezuelan representative for companies such as Dunlop. These things have allowed him some freedoms that others may not have and yet he is still a grounded person.

After his education at Bryanston School, he went to college in the United States at the University of Pennsylvania with degrees in both Political Science and History. As a freshman, his father was arrested and beaten almost to the point of death for almost seventy-four day.

During that time, he spear headed the campaign to have his father released working alongside multiple international organizations. Despite a set back like that, Halvorssen went on to graduate magna cum laude with his degrees. He was also a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

In April of 2005 he started the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) in New York City. The company began as a result of his mother’s shooting just a few months before. She was attending a peaceful protest when she was shot and wounded by the Venezuelan government security. When he resigned his position as the Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation for Individual Rights, his dream for HRF was to focus on freedom from self-determination and tyranny. Naturally, his company does not support violence as an answer. Read more: Thor Halvorssen | LinkedIn

According to IMDB, four months after starting HRF, Thor Halvorssen founded another human rights focused organization called Moving Picture Institute (MPI). Their slogan is “Promoting Freedom through Film”. The goal of MPI is to help film makers that are focusing on equal rights through grants, scholarships, promotions, and marketing among other things. One of the movies they helped produce was Freedom’s Fury which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.

In 2009, he started an annual conference that focused on equal freedoms. The Oslo conference focuses on bringing the powerhouse in different industries together to collaborate and think of ways they can help bring freedom to others. The conference’s success helped him receive the presidential silver medal to commemorate the ten year anniversary of the Romanian Revolution. The founder put it so eloquently when he said, “We shall never feel free as long as other people are not free.”

George Soros Reignites His Interest in Political Lobbying

posted by: tra4

No Comments »

After over a decade away from political lobbying, Mr. Soros is reported to be more politically active over the past one year. His last political contribution where he gave an unprecedented sum amounting to $27 million is believed to be in the 2004 election. His aim was to help John Kerry defeat former President, George W. Bush.

Guilty of being a passionate man, Mr. Soros described overcoming Bush in the 2004 election as “a matter of life and death.” He even compared Bush’ Administration to that of the Nazis, which prompted personal attacks from media outlets as well as Political conservatives. The unsuccessful bid to defeat Bush ate at George Soros and brought the concerns that political financiers had too much influence in politics.

Sources close to the 85-year-old Hungarian-born investor claim his renewed interest in political lobbying is due to his faith in Hillary Clinton as well as his lack of trust in Donald Trump and his misguided philosophy on Forbes. Earlier in the year, Mr. Soros accused presidential aspirant, Donald Trump and Texas senator, Ted Cruz of fear mongering by spreading fear in the US, something he likened to the terrorist group, ISIS.

According to George Soros, ISIS uses ‘fear of death’ as a weapon to destabilize Western Civilizations. He further claimed that that fear pushes people to do irrational things, which tend to be more harmful than helpful. Therefore, he has emerged as a leading funder for Democrats. According to Mr. Soros’ associates and the Federal Election Commission records, George Soros has contributed well over $25 million to Hillary Clinton and other Democratic causes.

Mr. Michael Vachon, a political adviser to Mr. Soros, made a statement claiming that political stakes in the coming election were high owing to the hostility and opposition of issues Mr. Soros had supported for years. Mr. Vachon added that issues such as criminal justice reforms, immigration reforms, and religious tolerance are some of the contentious issues causing friction between the Democrats and the Republicans even before Mr. Trump became the Republican nominee.

The huge contribution made by Mr. Soros is seen as a good sign. General belief by the political candidates is that it has the potential to spark more contributions by rich lobbyists on In addition to Mr. Soros’ contribution, other rich liberal donors such as Tom Steyer, Don Sussman, Haim Saban and Fred Eychaner have contributed to Hillary Clinton’s cause

This mobilization of the elite benefactors to Clinton’s campaign has led to a massive financial advantage Trump’s funding committee. This has allowed Clinton and the Democrats to build a political campaign that trashes Trump’s campaign.

During his time away from political involvement, Mr. Soros directed his efforts in his philanthropic duties where he has donated over $13 billion to non-profit organizations over the past three decades. The non-profits he has donated to have objectives close to his heart such as defending human rights, facilitating healthcare and education up to the grassroots level around and shaping democratic processes around the globe.

posted by: tra4

No Comments »

Are you gearing up to plan a wedding, or a birthday? Is the thought of planning this event so daunting that it’s time to call some backup? Well, here’s a few simple suggestions to choosing the right event planner for you.

First you must figure out the objective of the event and what role the event planner will play in the whole process. What is goal of the event/celebration and what will the event planner do for you to make this possible? If you know what you want from the planner, then there will be less miscommunication and things will run more smoothly.

Next, come up with a reasonable budget. This way you know the reality of what things really cost. Most people expect they will get every luxury available, when in reality, they can’t afford all of it.

When looking for a qualified event planner, do your research! You can talk peers in the the industry like professional affiliations, or meet with hotels and the local chamber of commerce to find out how reputable and professional a planner is. Getting an educated opinion in this matter usually is better than asking someone who knows nothing about it.

After you talk to people who know the event planning business you can interview multiple event planners, so you can see who best fits your needs. Once you choose the right event planner, let them know the details of your event. If it’s possible, meet your planner in person. This way you can get a feel for them, something you cannot get over an email.

Another important step in finding the right event planner is checking their references. You don’t want to hire someone who lied about their qualification do you?

Now that you have chosen your event planner, see what they envision for your special event. Does it coincide with what you want? This should include a detailed budget of every expense, including fees, deposits, etc.

Don’t leave every detail to the planner, get involved! This way you can confirm what’s happening and not be disappointed with the results. If it’s not working out you can give them the boot.

Why Labaton Sucharow’s Clients are Winning Huge SEC Whistleblower Awards

posted by: tra4

No Comments »

Labaton Sucharow has carved a niche for itself by having one of the most comprehensive SEC Whistleblower programs in the U.S. Recently, the Securities and Exchange Commission awarded over 17 million dollars to an informant who was represented by Labaton Sucharow. This represents the second biggest grant awarded to a whistleblower by the SEC. The award is currently in its sixth year and recognizes whistleblowers whose actions lead to fruitful prosecution.

Whistleblowers stand to receive between ten and thirty percent of any monies recovered. In this case, the client furnished the SEC with detailed information, which helped unearth massive corruption at a major financial services firm. The whistleblower chose to report anonymously to avoid getting blacklisted. Normally, the Securities and Exchange Commission does not make disclosures concerning specific cases, and the role played by the informants. This helps conceal their identities.

Courageous Whistleblowing

In the past, potential whistleblowers opted to remain silence for fear of being victimized. However, the enactment of the SEC whistleblower attorney program signals the advent of courageous whistleblowing. There are provisions for financial rewards, anonymous reporting, and protection from any form of retaliation. Hopefully, these incentives will spur more insiders to come out and make revelations about fraud in the financial services industry.

Labaton Sucharow’s head of whistleblower representation, Jordan A. Thomas asserts that it takes courage for one to report fraud. He further points out that his client came out at a time when many insiders are turning a deaf ear on financial fraud. Thomas is a renowned SEC whistleblower lawyer, and has successfully represented tens of clients. SEC recently received a major boost after the Investor Protection Fund was replenished by the Congress to a tune of 400 million dollars. This will help provide all the necessary funds.

Labaton Sucharow in Brief

The firm has established itself in the legal field by offering unequaled representation to its clients. It mainly represents institutional investors and private businesses in complex business and securities lawsuits. Labaton Sucharow gained prominence after being the first American legal firm to establish a whistleblower protection program.

The whistleblower attorney program has been hugely successful. This success has been based on the firm’s comprehensive securities litigation program. It boasts the services of in-house financial analysts, forensic accountants, legal practitioners, and investigators. Since its formation over 50 years ago, Labaton Sucharow has been consistently profiled by notable legal publications such as The Legal 500, Chambers & Partners, Benchmark Litigation, and The National Law Journal’s Plaintiff’s Hot List.

Doe Deere: On Making Your Dreams Come True

posted by: tra4

No Comments »

Most people associate Doe Deere with the brightly colored hair she favors and the bold colors of her make-up line, the recognizable Lime Crime. But most people aren’t familiar with how she got started in such a tough business and how she managed to make it to the top.

Deere is known as the “Queen of Unicorns” in the business and has become quite an unusual success story in the cosmetic world. She is always willing to share her story as an example to let others know that they can do anything too.

Deere was actually born in Russia. Perhaps she was always meant to be a businesswoman because at 13 years old she started her first business, selling temporary tattoos. She relocated with her family to the states when she was only 17 years old. Her creativity wasn’t always understood and she was thought to be a little odd. She discovered a love for music and thought that was where her path would take her. Music helped her to understand marketing and other aspects of business that would become very important to her later.

Deere initially lived in Brooklyn and Manhattan and she continued to perform on the music scene with a band. That experience paid off in a big way because while in the band she fell in love and met her husband. She says while performing and promoting the band that the couple realized that they worked together incredibly well. She also says she learned all kinds of things and that all of those experiences helped her become the successful businesswoman she is today.

Deere says to follow your heart if you want your dreams to come true. Sometimes when you make brave decisions they definitely pay off. She says her motto is “go where you love” and that its one she’s always followed herself. If she hadn’t believed in herself Lime Crime would have never existed.

She has always favored bright, bold colors and says when she looked at the make-up world beige and muted colors ruled the market. She bravely decided to do something out of ordinary and take her own advice and followed her heart. Early on she realized that there were a lot of other girls who were looking for something different too. The next time you see someone with green lips, orange hair and yellow eye shadow, they are most certainly a customer of Doe Deere.
