Freedompop slated to arrive in Spain this summer

Originally reported in Mobile World Live, FreedomPop is bringing its MVNO service to Spain this summer by way of the application WhatsApp. Utilizing the technology, messaging and calling will be completely free regardless of usage. As it stands, users get up to 500mb of data free with upgrades ranging from $9.99 to $59.99.

Currently the company is only available in the US and UK, but 31 additional countries are set to be offered service with beta registration available on a first come-first serve basis. This is a result from the $109 million dollars in funding they’ve raised to expand in such markets as Asia, South America and Europe. A global hotspot is also planned to be unveiled in Europe sometime in the future.

According to a recent review, FreedomPop has said over 70 percent of mobile users in Spain use WhatsApp and accounts for 90 percent of the countries texting. Co-Founder and COO Steven Sesar stated the company has “completely cannibalized traditional mobile services in Spain and shaped a unique opportunity for companies looking to embrace the new OTT world we live in,”.

They estimate the amount of subscribers they will obtain in Spain to be between 500,000 and 1,000,000. This is already in addition to the close to 100,000 they project in the UK.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is conducting its search for its Woman of the Year for 2016. From across the country, candidates are nominated by their local chapters in honor of a childhood survivor of blood cancer while also raising awareness and funds for its research. The LLS’ South Central Texas Chapter has named Dr. Jennifer Walden as its candidate for 2016.

Walden, who works as a plastic surgeon at Westlake Medical Center will compete against other candidates for the LLS’ title of Woman of the Year by raising funds in an effort to rid the world of blood cancers, and has to do so between March 23 and June 4. Each dollar collected is counted as a symbolic vote for the candidate in question. Those with the most votes will be titled Woman of the Year for the South Central Texas Chapter of the LLS. The votes will be counted and the winner chosen at the Grand Finale Gala at the AT&T Conference Center on June 4.

Jennifer Lee Walden has been known for her expertise in plastic surgery, but she is well known for her media presence as well as her academic contributions to medicine. She is the founder of the Walden Cosmetic Surgery Center where she provides plastic and ambulatory surgeries from her private practice in Austin, Texas, and has staff who provide similar support as a satellite campus in Marble Falls.

Walden is member of noted plastic surgery organizations like the Modern Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery Practice’s Editorial Board of Directors as well as the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Board of Directors. Outside of her personal practice, arguably her biggest contribution to this field of medicine comes from the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery textbook she co-authored.

In order to conduct its operations, the LLS takes in donations in order to perform research and provide support and information to the public about all that they do.

Martin Lustgarten Show Clients How To Make Money

Investment banking can be a tricky business. You can win big – or, you could lose your shirt if you put your money in the wrong hands. Basically, investment banks create capital for companies, corporations or private citizens with deep pockets. The banks that offer investment services are usually offshoots or subsidiaries of larger banks. Besides investing, they provide a number of functions like underwriting debt, assisting in acquisitions or strategizing how a business should be reorganized.

 

During the 2008 banking crisis, a number of investment bank collapsed; some were saved by Congress. Notably, Lehman Brothers was one of the largest and most recognizable companies that went bankrupt. Several others such as Fannie Mae, Deutsche Bank, Merrill Lynch and AIG came perilously close. The ramification of the near collapse can still be felt today.

 

Hedge fund advisor Martin Lustgarten gives sound advise all of his clients. He invests his money both at home and abroad. “There are many places around the world where investing can be very profitable. There are some places where you could lost it all,” according to Lustgarten. When you open an new portfolio, finding the best place to park your money is the first goal, according to Lustgarten.

 

Lustgarten is considered a consummate professional and one of the most successful investment bankers in his field. He has extensive experience both in the U.S. and internationally. He has a good eye for investing and has made his clients a ton of money more often than not. “Keeping your clients happy is job one,” says Lustgarten.

HRF’s Thor Halvorssen Tells FOX News: Democratic Socialist Over Dictatorship Policies

The Human Rights Foundation founder is quick to assert to FOX News that socialism is a violation of basic human rights. Then many might ask, why did Thor Halvorssen just write the largest contribution allowable to the campaign of democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders?

 

To the HRF President and CEO, it’s quite simple, and he explained it to FOX’ Trish Regan duringThe Intelligence Report. Halvorssen has a larger problem with the two front-runners Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, because they both favor dictatorship policies, Trump for aligning himself with Russia’s Putin and Hillary accepting multi millions of dollars from dictatorships around the world.

 

“I would rather have a democratic socialist than a supporter of dictators in the White House,” Halvorssen stated.

 

Halvorssen believes that to end poverty, one must create more wealth by encouraging the rule of the free markets, but he also explains that democratic socialism can exist. As long as the branches of government are held responsible, there is separation of power and constitutional rights, then this aspect of socialism is alright. Halvorssen goes on to mention that countries like Denmark, Norway and Sweden with social or labor governments operate properly.

 

When countries exist under the mask of socialism, claiming to help the people but instead take over and loot the country, then it is unacceptable, Thor Halvorssen emphasized to Regan. He used the South American country of Venezuela as an example.

 

“The government decides prices are going to be a certain way. Because they set the prices, what ends up happening, massive lay-offs. What you have now coming up is a humanitarian crisis,” Halvorssen stated.

 

Halvorssen knows plenty about Venezuela since his father was taken in as a political prisoner there. In addition, his mother was shot by the Hugo Chavez regime, and a first cousin is currently jailed in Venezuela under similar circumstances.

 

A human rights advocate and film producer, Halvorssen founded the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) in the spring of 2005.

Helane Morrison Shatters the Glass Ceiling While Staying Ethical

Helane Morrison is a true rarity in the government . Despite all the corruption arround her, this capable government worker and rising star who started off in the world of journalism has not only shattered glass ceilings but has not wavered from the moral path she has set to follow. Today she works tirelessly to end the gap that exists between men and woman in the financial sector.

Helane Morrison began her career as a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun and the Hon. Richard A. Posner of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit . After passing the bar, she started her career in private practice, where she quickly became an expert in the Securities and exchange commission (SEC) in the San Fransico office. Helane Morrison holds the distinction of being the first woman to hold this office. After serving for several years as the securities and exhange comsissioner’s enforcer she is back working in the private sector as Managing Director, General Counsel, and Chief Compliance Officer of Hall Capital Partners LLC. 

Helane Morrison’s career is one that has breaks boundaries and made great changes. Morrison is proud that she was able to do so while remaining ethical and upholding the laws of the United States. Morrison was attracted to Hall Capital in part because of her drive to bridge the gap between men and women in the finacial sector. 

While more women are entering the workforce, and the gap is getting smaller, Morrison realized that there was still a big gap in the financial and legal sectors of the economy. She discovered over the course of her career that there were financial groups that held seperate meetings for women, which she felt was detrimental to the careers of her peers because it kept them from participating in the boardroom with the men.

Hall Capital is a firm that is run by women, which is why she wanted to be a part of this firm. She felt that it was an important way for her to continue to shatter the glass ceiling and break barriers in her field of choice. By supporting and being a part of an organization where women held all of the executive offices and positions of power she could provide opportunities for younger women to break the same barriers and get ahead in their field. 

Morrison uses her expertise that she has gained through her years as a lawyer and at the SEC to be an important part of Hall Capital.

Women Learn To Break The Rules From Doe Deere

Doe Deere is more of a fashion outlaw than she is the traditional CEO. She runs a company called Lime Crime that makes the most outrageous colors for cosmetics anyone can find. Doe Deere makes cosmetics to help women shock everyone around them, but she is also a girl who does not play by the patriarchal rules that have governed fashion for a long time. Doe tells women to do things that do not seem kosher, but she is not telling all women to break all the rules all the time. It would look a little strange for a woman to go in public with peep toe shoes in the middle of winter with patterned hose and four different bright patterns on.

Doe starts with suggesting that women start adding patterns to each other. Fashion designers today love to mix patterns, but a lot of women think they are not cleared to do something that is so brave. Wearing one pattern on top and one pattern on bottom is a great idea for any woman. There is nothing stopping a woman from wearing all her favorite patterns at the same time if she wants to.

Mixing bright colors is a major faux pas in most fashion circles, but the rules are not what they used to be. A woman can wear a bright lip and bright eye at the same time, or she can wear her bright yellow jacket with her neon orange skirt. No one can tell women what to wear anymore, and there is a possibility that a woman could wear her brightest clothes with her brightest makeup.

Women have shoes that they have to pull out of the back of their closet when they are working on their summer or winter clothes, but there is no reason to segregate all their clothes and shoes. Winter and summer shoes are not a thing anymore, and a woman who loves her peep toe shoes should wear them when she wants. Men get told to not wear sandals with socks, and women get told to not wear peep toes with stockings.

Telling women to dress their age is probably the most patriarchal thing that has ever been done. Doe knows that men want young women to dress like young women and older women to dress like older women. She knows better than that, and she wants women to wear the things they love to wear. A woman with great legs should wear mini skirts if she wants to, and a woman who still loves her long hippy skirts should wear them. Telling a woman to dress her age is more like a challenge for Doe.

Having hair that is a strange color is something that women have been discouraged from doing by being told that they are only allowed to wear neutral colors. The neutral colors that women have to wear because of their blue or purple hair wash them out, and Doe thinks that is ridiculous. Women can wear any colors they want no matter what kind of hair they have, and that is the heart of her philosophy. Do whatever makes a girl feel beautiful.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s Wikipedia Page Vandalized After Oscar Win

Leonardo DiCaprio has recently been in the headlines for finally winning his first Academy Award, after a long and celebrated film career. DiCaprio was the favorite for Best Actor after his role in The Revenant earned him a Golden Globe and a BAFTA, but the win is still a milestone as DiCaprio was nominated five times without winning. Since the victory, his fans have been abuzz with celebration, collectively fangirling over DiCaprio’s long-awaited big moment. However, one fan seems to have taken their excitement too far. While former teen heartthrob Leo was busy enjoying his Oscars evening, someone took to Wikipedia to spread the news. Since Wikipedia is a source that can be edited by anyone, they was able to add the phrase, “FINALLY HAS A GODDAMN OSCAR” over and over throughout DiCaprio’s page, turning his filmography into a testament of just how dedicated his fans are. Seems like it’s time for DiCaprio to hire someone to clean up his Wikipedia page!

It may seem strange that someone like Leonardo DiCaprio would be concerned with his Wikipedia page, but Wikipedia is actually a very useful and important tool for branding and promotion. Wikipedia is a collaborative internet encyclopedia, which means that instead of hiring writers to create its content, Wikipedia allows its community of users to write, edit, and update Wiki articles. When used correctly, it is a great source of information that can be utilized to help build a brand and achieve the level of prestige and authority that comes from being associated with such a trusted site. Wikipedia can also help increase web-traffic and sales with enhanced visibility in search results, thanks to Wikipedia’s high Google rating that translates to an SEO boost for your company. It is essential that every business establish an effective online presence, including proper Wikipedia business page creation. 

That “well-built” part is key! Wikipedia has strict guidelines against posting biased or promotional content, and pages that don’t follow the writing guidelines can be flagged or removed. Creating an effective Wikipedia page can be challenging, which is why many businesses turn to outside services to avoid the headache of creating, editing, and monitoring their page. In particular, Get Your Wiki is a trusted company of knowledgeable Wikipedia experts for hire who can enhance the benefits and opportunities of Wikipedia by giving you a page created by professionals at a Wikipedia editing service. Why risk putting anything but your best face forward?

Empowering Women To Feel And Look Their Best

The desire to look and feel your best is one that everyone can relate to. In an age where technology provides us not only with instant access but also instant images it can be tough to maintain that best ideal. Time has a tendency to catch up to all of us, where we once had tight curves and gentle laugh lines, we now face growing mid-sections and deep set wrinkles. Exercise and eating right can only go so far and eventually the decision to take control of our changing bodies is needed. This is when one looks to aesthetic surgery. Whether it is something to help get rid of that stubborn area that doesn’t respond to exercise or a lift against gravity. Wanting to feel and look good is an important part of life. Having the confidence to know that you look your best is priceless.

The Texas lifestyle is one where we work hard and play hard. In order to be our best sometimes we need a little extra. This is when the award-winning, fully accredited Dr. Jennifer Walden can help. A Texas native she studied not only in her home state, but also had an Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship with the Manhattan Eye, Nose and Throat Hospital; the premier “hands-on” clinical training for Aesthetic Surgery. She has returned to Texas to open a clinic and to raise her boys around their family.

With a focus on making women feel empowered, Dr. Walden is one of the best Aesthetic Surgeons in the state. A noted philanthropist, Dr. Walden is part of numerous child related agencies; working Austin Smiles to provide corrective surgery for children born with cleft lip and those in need of palate surgery. She also continues to improve her community by helping to serve with the Junior League of Austin’s program to provide underprivileged elementary school children with food that they can take home over the weekend. Doctor Walden continues to support women’s health and is a member of the Executive Leadership Team for the Go Red program, seeking to raise awareness of heart disease in women.

Ross Abelow Saving the Homeless Animals of New York City

Many New Yorkers dread the impending winter months. The bitter cold temperatures and several feet of snow, sometimes bringing the city to a halt. Many New Yorkers curl up in the warmth of their homes and ride out the storm. What happens to those less fortunate? The cold lonely streets of New York city is home to several thousand stray cats and dogs. How many times have they been chased away while looking for a bite to eat or a place to get warm? The cold hard reality is that many times these poor defenseless creatures were tossed out of their warm safe homes. Their owners tired of the responsibility or just not getting their pet spayed or neutered and casting off the poor babies. Many of these helpless animals won’t make it through the winter months without help. One of New York City’s finest attorneys, Ross Abelow is trying to help. Ross Abelow has begun a Gofundme campaign to raise money for the local animal shelters.

Mr. Abelow’s goal is to raise enough money to provide these animals with a safe place to stay until a forever home can be found. With extra funding the local animal shelters will be able to expand space, provide blankets, food and medical care to these animals. Most of which are malnourished or desperately in need of medical attention. Perhaps if more people had big hearts like Ross Abelow and donated to his campaign we could save these poor creatures from a harsh and painful death. Most animals who are not adopted are destroyed. More people need to support their local animal shelters, like Ross Abelow.

Protecting the vulnerable comes easy to Ross Abelow. He graduated from the Brooklyn School of Of Law in 1990. He has spent 27 years protecting his clients. Whether they are facing the break down of a marriage, the loss of a family member, bitter custody dispute or protecting his entertainment clients best interests. Ross Abelow has dedicated his life to protecting the underdog.

Ross Abelow is licensed to practice law in Connecticut and the eastern and southern federal districts of New York. He has represented many of New York City’s famous and wealthy residents during his career. He can defend as well as prosecute many cases. However, the ones he finds most difficult are the cases involving small children. A family oriented man he spends his free time coaching his three daughters while they play basketball and softball.
