Skout Wants to Share the Love of Comedy

Skout Wants to Share the Love of Comedy published on 1 Comment on Skout Wants to Share the Love of Comedy

The only dating company Skout is always looking to find out more information about its users in order to make the experience better for everyone involved. There are many different forms of comedy out there and Skout wants to know not only what people find humorous, but how it can affect them personally. That is why it created a survey for individuals using the application to fill out. The survey took place with over 3,000 individual users within the United States in order to share their particular feelings and thoughts on the topic.

For starters, it is important to show some sort of humor inside of a photograph on the dating application. Those who have a picture of themselves laughing are 404 percent more likely to make connections over someone who is not laughing or smiling on their profile.

Of course, the survey did not look into what percentage of people someone might think is funny (although it is likely far below the 75 percent level). Those individuals who link themselves to having a witty sense of humor are more likely to consider themselves funny. Individuals who like to laugh with friends and who like to make other people laugh is one of the largest groups in the survey. 94 percent of people said they enjoy making other people laugh. Those individuals who say slapstick is their go to form of comedy are the individuals who are more likely going to try to make someone else laugh (this sits at 98 percent).

People who like to play practical jokes and who say bathroom humor is their favorite style is more likely to have at least five close friends, while people who use a sarcastic or self depreciating form of humor are less likely to have five or more close friends.

Clowns originally came about to make people laugh and to perform in front of others with exaggerated movements. However, 30 percent of people said they not only fail to see clowns funny but are actually afraid of clowns. People with a sarcastic sense of humor (you know, the individuals who are less likely to have close friends) are those who are more likely to be afraid of clowns.

US Money Reserve President Argues Against The Penny

US Money Reserve President Argues Against The Penny published on 1 Comment on US Money Reserve President Argues Against The Penny

In an interview on CNBC Squakbox the US Money Reserve president, Philip Diehl, argued his case against keeping the penny in circulation . Despite the fact that there are those who are strongly invested in keeping the penny around, Diehl asks the audience to consider all the disadvantages of keeping the penny.

The US Money Reserve president first began by arguing that no one uses the penny any more. He went on to claim that a good portion of the American population passes up pennies that they see on the street rather than making the effort to pick them up and save them. He goes on to point out that around 75% of all transactions in the United States happen electronically in the modern era.

That leaves only approximately 25% of financial transactions to be completed with cash and with the market the way it is, Diehl argues that the penny is completely irrelevent. He also points out that it costs far more to make the penny than it is worth. With the penny taken out of circulation, nearly $100 million could be allocated elsewhere annually, according to his Facebook page.

There are, however, opposing forces to the US Money Reserve president’s efforts to eliminate the penny. One of those forces would be zinc. There are also economists who speculate that perhaps removing the penny from American currency will drive up prices and press inflation. Diehl argues that the impact would be minimal and that he believes the market will balance itself with very little effort.

Lobbists interested continuing to include the penny in American currency make arguements that it will change the market if it is removed. The US Reserve, however, could not be more clear on its position about the penny being an irrelevent and overly expensive piece of outdated currency.

Forefront Capital Partners For Military Support

Forefront Capital Partners For Military Support published on 1 Comment on Forefront Capital Partners For Military Support

Forefront Capital CEO, Brad Reifler announced his company’s partnership with the Easter Seals Dixon Center to aid veterans and military families with a variety of educational and outreach efforts. “This partnership is indicative of Forefront Capital’s commitment to serve the ever changing needs of today’s military community,” said Reifler on Twitter. As part of this partnership Forefront Capital will also advance Easter Seals a $3 million donation. This innovative collaboration will provide the military community with professional development and job training, healthcare, and educational resources.

Easter Seals, a 100-year old charitable organization, has been a leading provider of family-centered services, working every day helping individuals overcome their barriers. The non-profit provides a wide array of free training and resources to the less fortunate, and the goal is to provide veterans and their military families with the knowledge and tools needed to secure meaningful employment. “Through our collaboration, we seek to empower motivated individuals and create economic opportunity for military families,” said Forefront Capital CEO, Brad Reifler.

Brad Reifler: Quiet Revolutionary

For financial investment experts, like Brad Reifler, it’s not always about wealth creation, but also about giving back. For more than 30 years, Reifler has been a cerebral champion in the finance industry, founding not one, but three successful companies, including Reifler Trading, Pali Capital, and the global family of Forefront Capital. His sharp focus and operational efficiency has confirmed his reputation as one of the best in the business.

Making Innovative Changes

Last year, Brad Reifler’s company, Forefront Capital created a new investment vehicle, Forefront Capital Trust, targeting middle-class investors. This fund allows non-accredited investors to consider funds once only marketed to the millionaire crowd. After SEC changes, this closed market has been opened up to the middle-class. According to Reifler, “it was not only good business sense but it was the right thing to do.” Reifler has found new success by redefining the market and including a new subset of investors. “Look for those unexpected new markets and read broadly to learn where new opportunities may lie,” says Reifler.

Slyce has proven to be one of the great success stories to come out of the tech startup world. Slyce was founded in 2012, and the Toronto company debuted an image recognition app in 2013. The app proved to be a solid hit with retailers and consumers. With image recognition software, the ability to search for merchandise was made a lot easier. At the end of the fourth-quarter of 2015, Slyce released a report detailing the major year-ending events. The report is impressive. Slyce truly made major inroads towards exceptional growth during the year.

Slyce was able to receive $7 million in additional investment funding. The company has had a great deal of good fortune when it comes to raising capital. The funds raised by the company have been put to solid use developing and acquiring new image recognition technology and software.

The report does go into detail over a number of those new developments. A content management system made its debut in the fourth-quarter, and so did a special program designed to make strategic recommendations to consumers surfing through an online retail site.

Among the most important developments during the fourth-quarter were the deals signed with top online retails. As long as Slyce continues to enter into partnerships with companies such as Shoes.com, the company will be primed for success.

Organo Gold: Making Healthy Coffee

Organo Gold: Making Healthy Coffee published on 1 Comment on Organo Gold: Making Healthy Coffee

Addictive, energizing, and a staple in the diets and lives of billions of people around the world, coffee has always been a favorite drink of the tired and worn out. But it is healthy?

The latest healthy coffee and tea product, Organo Gold, is making waves as a drink that actually improves or mitigates a variety of health issues. Drinkers of Organ Gold have seen benefits affecting asthma, diabetes, migraines, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and other problems in a positive way. The secret of Organo Gold is its incorporation of Ganoderma Lucidum, a 4,000 year old Chinese herb that acts as an antioxidant and adaptogen.

Organo Gold is popular for its taste as well as health benefits. Available in a wife range of favors, former non-coffee drinkers have actually begun to indulge thanks to the taste appeal of the drink.

So who is behind this revolutionary new product? CEO Bernardo T. Chua founded the company in 2008, motivated by his desire to sell a healthy alternative to the mass produced, generic coffee drinks. Originally from the Philippiens, CrunchBase indicates that Chua began his career in 1999 as the co-founder and General Manager of Gano Excel. Under his direction, the company expanded international into the United States, Hing Kong and Canada. He moved to California to take on the role of president at Gano Exxcel USA. It was at Gano Excel that Chua learned about infusing products with ganoderma and saw its numerous health benefits in action.

While at Gano Excel, Chua was awarded the Dangal ng Bayan Award for Business and Industry. He used his years of experience and knowledge to start Organo Gold. Thanks to his business acumen and the success of his products, Organo Gold is sold in over 35 countries spanning 6 continents. Chua was able to expand operations and open Organo Gold Singapore in 2015. Now, the company is ranked 55th in Direct Selling New’s Top 100 largest network marketing company.

It’s possible to now have the best of both worlds: a daily cup of joe and the knowledge that it’s a healthy choice.  There is a great speech from Bernardo Chua on YouTube about the benefits of Ganonderma and how his company has grown from his philosophies.

Skout Finds Out How Their Users View Kindness published on 1 Comment on Skout Finds Out How Their Users View Kindness

What are you going to do when you get to the coffee shop today to get your coffee and scone? What if you did something more than stuff your face with a delicious danish and up your intake of caffeine? If you are thinking about doing something more for the world when you do these little things, then you are thinking about things that lead to random acts of kindness. What if you bought the person behind you in line a cup of coffee in addition to your order? The cashier would certainly notice that you are being kind, and they might feel the need to share this with their coworkers or customers. Other people in the coffee shop might notice or overhear the conversations that take place during this, leading others to see kindness. Kindness spread quickly. The person who gets the free cup of coffee will likely feel a special appreciation that could lead them to other great things in their day.

What does this have to do with Skout? Actually, Skout has just celebrated a fun week long engagement called Random Acts Of Kindness Week.

Dick DeVos Enters the Liquor Industry

Dick DeVos Enters the Liquor Industry published on 1 Comment on Dick DeVos Enters the Liquor Industry

 

In my opinion, one of the most prominent and selfless families in the United States is the DeVos family that has profited from the family business of Amway Corporation. Despite the large profits, the DeVos family has used their wealth to give back to the community in order to share their wealth rather than keep it. Dick DeVos, a member of the family is especially interested in making considerable donations to his community in Michigan through his family foundation. One of his biggest donations go towards education as a way of making it available for all individuals despite financial situations or hardships. Mr. DeVos is a firm believer that a child from a low-income family should have the same opportunities with the potential they show.

DeVos has many interests besides his business endeavors and philanthropy efforts. He is an avid sailor and an accomplished pilot.

Congratulations to the recent Melges 32 Gold Cup participants and winners—what a thrilling race against incredibly talented sailors!

In recent news, as a new hobby, Dick and his wife, Betsy have become involved in the liquor business. Dick and Betsy have become large investors to the Coppercraft distillery and have enabled the distillery to expand. 

The current owner of the distillery is Walter Catton III who open this distillery in 2013. The new investments made have enabled him to expand the distillery to a new 9,000 sq-foot facility which includes both a tasting room that can seat over 50 people as well as a brand new kitchen.

Coppercraft Distillery is currently building the company’s inventory due to the Tulip Time Festival that is up and coming in the Lakeshore area. The distillery currently ships their product to over 100 different locations that are located in Colorado, Illinois, as well as in Michigan.

With the new expansion of the distillery, Dick DeVos and Mr. Catton are accepting more experience part-time and full-time workers. The products that are currently produced include whiskey, vodka, rum, as well as gin. With the expansion of the distillery, the company will now expand to include both handcrafted beer as well as wine. This, in Mr. DeVos’ eyes will broaden the market of alcohol drinkers. With the new changes in the distillery, Mr. DeVos and his partner are pleased with the expansion and are now focusing on new possible projects to improve the company even more. With Mr. Catton’s expertise in liquor, and Mr. DeVos’ skill with business, the distillery will continue to flourish.
