Davos Real Estate Group, a sister-company also founded and led by Mr. David Osio, has cutting-edge experts to assist with all the legalities of the real estate sales process including rent, mortgage, new developments and investments. Osio recommends diversifying your portfolio with added real estate, because it has less of a risk, higher performance, and is naturally protected from inflation.

Osio began his career as a lawyer in 1988 and after two years, he took an intense interest in finances and real estate; he quickly established himself as a predominant and well-known member of the industry. He is presently Chief Executive Officer of Davos Financial Group, which prides itself as the very first financial advisory company in Venezuela and has now spread to several locations both inside and outside of the United States. Previous to this, Osio served as Vice President for Banco Latino International of Miami and Director for Escritorio Juridico MGO in Caracas, Venezuela.

In 1988, Mr Osio earned a law degree with honors from Universidad Católica Andrés Bello, one of the biggest, most well-known and prestigious universities in Venezuela. After receiving his law degree, he continued his education at Instituto de Estudios Superiores Administrativos and the New York Financial Institute.

Bury Bad News Without Delay August 23, 2016

Everyone should follow the basic advice of performing a self-directed Google search. People absolutely are advised to know what the search engines are showing about them. Business names should be run through the search engines as well. Finding out whether or not good or bad things are associated with the name is critical. Learning about the bad things is critical so steps can be taken to bury anything awful. To bury negative search results has to be a priority or else those results end up continuing to paint a very unflattering picture.

In very unfortunate instances, things end up spiraling out of control due to various unforeseen circumstances. Getting into trouble with the law would be a perfect example of how the search engine results become filled with bad news. Criminal and civil fiascos do drag good names into the press. The worst part of all this is the news makes someone look guilty or culpable even if he/she did nothing wrong. Taking steps to bury negative press is critical because the news about an exoneration is never going to be reported widely.

There just isn’t much interest in reading positive news as much as there is in reading about negative material. So, all that bad news ends up being circulated a lot more. The bad news could even come in the form of outrageous social media posts and more. Regardless of what the content is or where the source derives, to bury bad news has to become a major priority. As long as people are able to easily come across such things in the search engine results, negative consequences could – and likely will – result.

The only way to achieve a better search engine presence is to hire a legitimate online reputation management firm to handle these important tasks. Bury Bad Articles is one such company. The firm promises to drive down bad news, press, comments, and other items deep into the bowels of the search engines. By replacing the bad content with good content, Bury Bad Articles achieves this cause. Both businesses and individuals may get their untarnished names back.

Anyone who is dealing with the effect of bad news is advised to do something about it. Hiring valuable help is probably the best action to take. Only a skilled hand is going to know what to do to deal with the online mess.

The Films and Flair of Crystal Hunt July 21, 2016

Renowned actress, Crystal Hunt, has had a peculiar and interesting career which began in 1987. At this time Hunt, then only two years of age, regularly participated in youth beauty pageants specializing in, what else but acting. From there she quickly started garnering attention from various different corporate interests and, in the space of only several years began appearing on various different commercials. Some of these included acting slots for companies as prestigious as Walt Disney, specifically the fantasy companies 25th Anniversary Celebration commercial. During this time a young Ms. Hunt also appeared briefly alongside the, at the time, wildly popular Orlando based boy band, N’Sync in a widely displayed and marketed anti drug commercial.

However, Ms. Hunt’s most popular role, by far, is her portrayal of the spirited and mentally troubled, Lizzie Spaulding, a main character from the popular and critically acclaimed American soap opera, Guiding Light (one of the longest running television programs in television history). Her performance was so well received by critics and fans alike that she received the coveted Daytime Emmy Award from the National Academy of the Arts and Sciences in the category of Outstanding Actress in a Drama Television Series. After Ms. Hunt’s three year run as Spaulding on Guiding Light she moved on to larger budget mainstream production in such films as the 2005 Zac Efron headed drama film, the Derby Stallion as Jill Overton.

After this successful outing Ms. Hunt continued her performance in larger and larger scale films, starring in quick successions in such features as, the romantic comedy, Sydney White, then returning to drama in the daytime soap opera, One Life To Live. Most recently Ms. Hunt has appeared in the much awaited sequel to Magic Mike, Magic Mike XXL and currently runs a up-scale, pet boutique in Clearwater Florida.  Check out her official site for more about this tremendous actress.

Nutrimost takes aim at Healthy Living with a federal lawsuit

A federal lawsuit was filed against Healthy Living for the unauthorized use of a promotional video Nutrimost was using to promote their latest weight loss program. In fact, the video was stolen. The lawsuit claims Healthy Living stole the video from the Nutrimost website, modified it, and used the video on their own site.

The video stolen is eerily the same as the original. The only content that was modified was any references to Nutrimost being replaced with the “Can’t Lose Diet”, from Healthy Living. The ripped-off video was being played on can’tlosediet.com.

The claims that the Nutrimost Program used on its video showed up on the video Healthy Living was using, like losing 25 to 45 pounds in 40 days. In addition to that, the claims of never having to exercise or feel hungry were the same for both videos.

Healthy living was served by the federal courts with a cease-and-desist letter to get them to stop showing the video, but the order was ignored as Healthy Living continued to play the video with a slight modification, it being just a little shorter. To this date, the video has never resurfaced on the Healthy Living website.

Nutrimost wanted Healthy Living to be punished more for the theft, asking for over $300,000 in damages, and, asking the court to never allow the video to be shown by Healthy Living again.

Dr. Ray Wisniewski is the principal of the program for Nutrimost. He is a practicing chiropractor from Pennsylvania. He studies “pastoral medicine”, a combination of science and spiritual health wisdom and understanding.

The weight loss by Nutrimost is the most advanced of its kind. Those using the program will lose 25 to 40 pounds in 40 days while never having to exercise or feel hungry.

Kyle Bass’ Predictions And Failed Investment Gambles July 14, 2016

Recently, Kyle Bass appeared on FBN’s Wall Street Week to give his thoughts regarding the world economy and the presidential elections in the United Sates. One of the notable remarks he made during the interview was that there would be a possible minor recession in the next one year.

During the interview, Bass criticized the negative interest rates in the United States. He claimed that although negative interest rates are great ideas on books, in real life practice, they make no sense. Bass believes that having over 8 trillion dollars on negative interest rates is a recipe for disaster that should be stopped before it destroys the economy. The owner of Hayman Capital Management also pointed to the increased interest in gold. This is because people are running away from banks where they are being charged to deposit their hard-earned cash. Gold does not carry such costs in addition to the negative interest rates.

The hedge fund manager also believes that Hillary Clinton was the right president for the current market situation in the United States. However, he pointed out that some policies proposed by Hillary would hurt the market. He gave the example of her policies on drugs and taxes.

Numerous critics and analysts that believe Kyle Bass was a desperate gambler criticized his interview. Although his TV interviews have increased ever since he correctly predicted the economic recession of 2008, his investments are doing badly. The analysts also pointed at the scrupulous trades that he has been making in the recent past. Many people at Wall Street accuse him of shorting pharmaceutical companies. Such moves have seen delayed release of drugs that hurt many patients across the globe.

About Kyle Bass

Kyle Bass is the founder and principal of Hayman Capital. He was born on September 7th, 1969. His prowess in diving earned him a scholarship to Texas Christian University, where he studied finance and real estate finance. After graduating in 1992, he joined Prudential Securities before moving to Bear Stearns. At Bear Stearns, he served as a senior managing director at a tender age of 28 years. Later, he moved to Legg Mason before quitting and founding Hayman Capital.

How Does Skout Help People Connect? July 13, 2016

People get connected on Skout in a lot of different ways, but they all do so through the pictures that they take. These pictures are going to be placed on every person’s profile, and they are used to show what every person is like. The users who come to the app will place their own pictures on the app, and then they will have a look at all their other users to see who they want to talk to. It all depends on what the user wants to see when they have gotten in touch with a new friend. https://techcrunch.com/2014/05/05/skout-nixter/

The pictures that are placed on profiles on the site are going to help people look their best, and they will advertise what people have to offer. There are a lot of people who are going to pick out their friends just based on the pictures, but they will also be able to pick out people who offer certain services through certain businesses. That is what helps travelers who get on the app, and it also helps people who are trying to make a new friend or even find a new love interest. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/skout-reveals-the-top-10-friendliest-college-towns-in-america-300141309.html

The app is set up for people who want to share their pictures, and it provides something that people will want to see. That could be part of a business, or it could be something that people post when they are trying to just share what they love. It is a way for people to share their hobbies, and their hobbies might not even be for pay. It is just a way for people to post on social media and make new friends without any real commitment. However, it could be a place where people make friends based on what their interests are when they see their pictures.
