Armor Expert Michael Zomber


Over the centuries, people have found ways to create a means of protection during combat. One such way is with the use of armor that is made of metal. Metal has been used to create exterior body armor over the course of many cultures. One person who believes that such armor is not only useful as a means of self protection but also as a form of art is Japanese metal expert Michael Zomber. Zomber has done much to help provide people with an understanding of how metal can be formed into armor. In doing so, he has shown that it is possible to take all kinds of ordinary metals and create something that is quite extra ordinary and quite visually impressive at the same time.

So Much To Tell Us

Japan, as Zomber knows well, is one place where the world of personal body armor has a long and honorable history. It is in Japan during the period of the Samurai that the very possibilities of body armor started to come to life. This time frame was one in which people began to see that armor could be bent to help fashion many varied shapes that could be fitted to each individual person. Zomber has helped to show that the armor that was in use back then still has much to tell us about how metal can be used today in our world to create shapes that are pleasing to the eye and also help protect those who may fight.

His Own World

Historians of Japanese armor like Zomber are about complete accuracy and the love of this time frame. They know the importance a good accurate story about the many ways that the delicate and strong metals of this time were used. They have helped show that metal was a much valued commodity during this time and one that experts in Japan at that time knew quite well. This is why historians like Zomber wish to give credit to the world that fashioned such objects and help many other people appreciate how much craft went into creating them.  Check out his historical books on Amazon, or read more about Michael’s career on About.me.

Investor George Soros Offers His Opinion in Brexit Debate


The current talk of the whole of Great Britain is centered around Brexit, or the possible exit of Great Britain from European Union, and even George Soros has chimed in. Up until now, many high profile financial professionals have kept their opinions to themselves, but as the day draws near, economists and financiers are offering their opinions on the matter along with politicians and celebrities. Most recently, Soros made the news alongside football player David Beckham and his wife, Victoria Beckham, all coming out on the side of remaining with the European Union.

George Soros is a well known and respected investor, having made his mark in Britain and Europe over the past few decades. Not only does he work within the industry, but he has served as an analyst and published in many different forms on the history, trends, and implications within the financial world. Soros’ is basing his opinion about Brexit on his own knowledge of the financial history, and looking at where the British government and its financial health currently stands. Not only did he speak to the current state of affairs, but he looks at all the interests that Britain has and the many ties to the EU that would come into play in order to best set up Britain for economical health.

The Greatest Investors: George Soros

George Soros spoke of the financial ruin that has befallen Britain in the past, and how those situations were created by situations similar to the vote that is going take place. Soros, like Beckham, urges voters to think not only about the present state of economics in the country, but to consider the long term effects a split will cause. In leaving the Union, Britain would not only cause a huge wave of financial trouble for Britain, but for the youth of Britain that will inherit the problems created by the exit.

Every industry will be touched by the exit, but most profoundly the manufacturing industry, which is something that the country saw back in the 90’s. Export taxes and prices would rise faster than the industry could reasonably support, making it harder for local businesses to compete and still earn a profit. These difficulties would flow over into other industries, and it is these ripples that George Soros bases the large part of his argument on in a lot of the papers that he has been cited in. Of course, Soros has his critics and supporters in the opposition that cite other economic predictions of his that did not come to pass, but every point that Soros has raised is a concern.

Unmanagble Hair Transformed by Wen By Chaz


If you have ever been up late at night I am sure you have seen a Wen By Chaz Commercial. It was the product that was created by Chaz Dean for women with all different types of hair. It is also the commercial that you see with women who’s hair flows through the wind and looks flawless and almost unreal. It is the commercial that has you running to YouTube wondering how you can get hair that looks like that and it is also the commercial that makes you feel that all your hair goals are possible if you can get your hair on this product.
I have seen the Wen By Chaz ads on Amazon on several occasions and recently Emily Mcclure over at Bustle decided to take the Wen By Chaz challenge by highlighting her opportunity to use Wen By Chaz in the midst of the a large scandal. She tried the product for 7 days and took pictures each day to let readers see exactly how the product would impact their hair. The transforming power of the product was amazing and I was in awe as I watched Emily’s hair go from thin and unmanageable to beautiful and long manageable hair.

Brian Bonar: He Has All The Tools


Brian Bonar recently was awarded the highly coveted and prestigious Cambridge Who’s Who® Executive of the Year in Finance. This is an award that means a great deal to him and something he takes a lot of pride in, as he knows what he does, his employees know what he does, but respect from others is always a great thing.

It can be hard to achieve respect from others. As they say, respect and trust are hard to gain and easy to lose. All of the work he has been doing for over thirty years has paid off and this is just validation of that.

When it comes to this award, they look for three things: professional accomplishments, academic achievements and leadership abilities. When it comes to professional accomplishments, I would say almost thirty years in Finance sticks out to me.

The world of Fiance isn’t for everyone and there is nothing wrong with that. However, Brian Bonar has always been right there in the field, working hard, and putting his nose to the grindstone. He gives it his all and doesn’t give up when the going gets tough. He just keeps pushing, keeps fighting, and keeps looking for new and innovative ways to keep the Fiance world afloat, surviving, and thriving.

When it comes to academic accomplishments, Brian Bonar has always taken school and education very seriously. He knows that it gives you all of the tools needed to succeed. The minute you think you know everything, you are in serious trouble. Read more: The New Frontier and Brian Bonar Receives Professional Networking Community’s Highest Honor

There is always something out there to learn and more information to be gained. Brian has always been willing to learn from anyone that has something to offer him in terms of knowledge and school. He holds a Ph.D as a matter of fact, so that shows you his level of education.

Finally, there is leadership. As the CEO, you are the leader of your team of men and women. They look to you for guidance, support, and help. He has always been an honest, fair, and reliable boss. He knows what to look for in employees and how to get the best out of them.

He is not a yeller or a screamer. He doesn’t want his employees to walk on egg shells around him. He wants them to feel at ease, comfortable, and ready to take on the job with confidence. He believes in building them up, teaching them, and working with them, and then letting them do the job on their own.

He trusts his employees and knows they can handle it. He lets them go to work after showing them how to do it and stays out of their way without hovering over their shoulders every second.

Thanks For The A+ Beneful!


Mrs. Neily was always trying to get us more interested in class. I remember working on all sorts of weird projects and still watching the clock after a few minutes of class time had passed. All that changed when we got Pup. Mrs. Neily brought in a rescue puppy for our class to learn and grow with and put us into groups, each responsible for getting information about a different part of his care. Stacy and I got nutrition. Easy? No! After abut 15 minutes of surfing the internet, we were overwhelmed with information about food options that seemed more like mysteries than real food. “People feed their dogs this stuff?” Stacy nudged me. I shrugged, thinking the same thing. Then, we found Beneful on Wal-Mart supermarket. Yes! We turned in our assignment explaining what we’d found and why we wanted to choose Beneful for Pup.

Beneful Puppy – 0 of nutrients; it’s calcium rich and has DHA to help with brain development and vision. Perfect for him while he’s a puppy, without any extra stuff we found in the other dog food we researched.
• Beneful Healthy Weight – 0 of nutrients but with  fewer calories than the other flavor options. This one is a smart choice to have if weight is an issue for Pup later on.
Beneful Orignals With Real Beef – 0 of nutrients; antioxidant rich. Exactly what Pup will need when he gets old enough to stop eating Beneful Puppy.
• Beneful Originals with Real Salmon – 0 of nutrients plus Pup will have a shiny coat.
• Beneful Incredibites With Real Beef – 0 of nutrients and has bites that are just right for small dogs. Just in case Pup doesn’t get really big, he’ll still have tasty, healthy food. Our source is the Beneful amazon page.
Mrs. Neily read over our report and gave us a huge smile. “Great work you two! Guess what dog food we’ll be feeding Pup?” “Beneful?” we asked in unison. “I trust Beneful for my dogs at home and I know with Beneful, Pup will get the best possible nutrition throughout his entire life.” Thanks for the A+ Beneful!

Coca-Cola Stops Production in Venezuela


Add Coca Cola products to the list of things that Venezuelans will soon be going without. FEMSA, the largest Coca-Cola bottler in the Latin America, will be suspending production in Venezuela due to the shortage of sugar. On Thursday, FEMSA issued a statement saying, “Ninety percent of the production requires sugar. We are not going to shut our central office right now. We are not leaving Venezuela,” reports La Patilla Daily.
FEMSA Coca Cola is not the only company to suspend production according to expert Norka Luque. Most foods and ingredients needed to manufacture necessities are imported. With the economic crisis worsening, imports and food aren’t coming in to Venezuela. Because of this, manufacturers across the country are shutting their doors. In April as reported by Dateas, Polar Group, Venezuela’s largest private company, shut down production of beer citing a shortage of barley. In response to the high amount of companies suspending production, last week, President Nicolas Maduro again threatened government seizure of closed factories and to imprison their owners.
