Helane Morrison Unconcerned About DOJ Corporate Scrutiny

Helane Morrison Unconcerned About DOJ Corporate Scrutiny

I read with interest of the new scrutiny the federal Department of Justice (DOJ) has been giving corporations to make sure they are operating above-board and ethically. The DOJ has just appointed Hui Chen as their compliance counsel, a position that never existed before, to my knowledge. They also published an important document, called the Yates Memo, that reveals plans to start criminal prosecutions of those executives responsible for corporate crimes. Most prominent in the DOJ’s cross hair are the corporate Compliance Officers. It is more important than ever that these key people do there jobs ethically and completely to reduce corporate risks and blind spots that could end their corporations in hot water with the Justice Department.

As I understand it, a company’s Compliance Officer can be personally held accountable and even imprisoned for company misdeeds, even if they were not personally involved. To me this seems like the DOJ swinging a big stick to force good Compliance Officers to do their jobs. This is no problem for known good Compliance Officers, such as Helane Morrison, whose track record in business ethics is impeccable. Many people in such positions or that have been considering such as career path are quitting or losing interest in the job, because of the pressure they feel personally under such scrutiny by Hui Chen and her new department’s powers to have them help responsible, no matter what the actual cause of corruption in a company may be.

Hui Chen should probably thank Helane Morrison for her new position, in my opinion, because Helane is the SEC officer who was instrumental in bringing the rogue Wall Street robbers to justice when the unprecedented corruption there was discovered in 2007. She became a model for enforcing proper corporate ethics that Chen can learn from. After that horrendous mess that put our country’s economy in jeopardy, Helane Morrison left the SEC to become the Chief Compliance Officer at Hall Capital Partners.

Morrison began her law career as a clerk for Supreme Court Associate Justice Harry Blackmun. She had clerked for Richard A. Posner before that, who was a Judge at the U.S. Court of Appeals. She spent 10 years practicing law with the firm of Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin. Find out more on Helane Morrison.

George Soros Predicts Disaster for China

George Soros Predicts Disaster for China

George Soros was recently featured in an article by Bloomberg about his prediction that China’s current debt status is similar to that of the global economic crisis from 2007 through 2008. In the feature, Soros bases his analysis on the credit-growth figures for China from March of this year. Last month, the Chinese government poured $362 billion into the economy, which far exceeded the forecast. He explains that from the figures, it is evident that the Chinese government is currently prioritizing economic growth over keeping an eye on the country’s debt, which has been steadily on the rise. Because China is the second largest economy in the world on http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-04-20/soros-says-china-s-debt-fueled-economy-resembles-u-s-in-2007-08, Soros said he is keeping a close watch over the Chinese government’s decision to keep pumping money into losing enterprises to keep them afloat, while the number of loans made by the Chinese government continues to mount without the requisite amount of deposits to offset them. George Soros warns that this is a recipe for ultimate disaster, especially in light of the fact that international investors are growing weary of the unsustainable financial policy of the Chinese government.

Soros is widely consulted for his perspective on international markets and investment trends. His current fortune on http://www.biography.com/people/george-soros-20926527 stands at an estimated $24 billion, which he built up through taking risks on various international markets in part.

In 2011, the Open Society Foundations reported annual expenditures that exceeded $835 million in efforts to promote open societies, human rights and transparency throughout the world.

George Soros‘ incredible personal life story provides some insight into his strong commitment to philanthropic causes all over the globe. He was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1930 and survived the Nazi occupation of the country during World War II. Soros was forced to flee to England, where he studied at the London School of Economics beginning in 1947. After that, George Soros moved to the U.S., where he began his career in investing and would eventually go on to make a massive fortune based on his insight into the trends of international financial markets. Given his experience as an immigrant and sensitivity to the impact of authoritarian rule, Soros has been unwavering in utilizing his wealth and resources to prevent similar situations that he experienced growing up from taking hold around the world. Soros has published over a dozen books on a variety of subjects, including politics, social issues, economics and international investing.

Brian Bonar’s Bistro Bellamy’s is offering Exceptional Cuisine in Escondido

Brian Bonar’s Bistro Bellamy’s is offering Exceptional Cuisine in Escondido

Escondito, San Diego is an old-fashioned center of retail where there are many agricultural elites. It is also home to one of the best cooks in the country, Patrick Ponstay. Ponstay holds the title of Master Chef of France. He is one of two chefs to have ever earned the prestigious title in San Diego. Ponstay created a reputation while working at Rancho Bernardo Inn where he assisted Gavin Kaysen to become the star.

Ponstay’s present home is at the Bellamy’s, a bistro established by Brian Bonar. He acquired the best staff in the industry for the Bellamy’s after El Bizcocho located at Rancho Bernardo Inn announced an overhaul of the restaurant. Brian Bonar hired Trevor Da Costa and cook Mike Reidy (more can be read at Dalrada page). The team in addition to marquee chef, Ponstay, turned Bellamy’s into a remarkable restaurant. Bellamy’s interior has plush seats, Coppertone-brown partitions and a smooth jazz work of art that brings out a model home style.

The cuisines offered at Bellamy’s are prepared using the high standards in order to satisfy the utility of the consumers. Corn soup is blended with cream along with espelette peppers to give it a basque treatment. The soup is served cold over a scallop ceviche that has ginger, lime juice, cilantro, and olive oil. Additionally, the parsley-cream risotto is exceptional. It is offered with a shaved summer truffle, poached salmon and sea salt, which helps to make it crunchy.

Bellamy’s is among the few restaurants that serve a mille-feuille. The mille-fauille made by Ponstay and Reidy is prepared using bruleed apple portions on top of smoked eel as well as liver and cooked slowly in pork fat. A mouth-watering beet salad comes with red and golden bulbs over a dried porcini mushroom powder, cocoa nibs and pistachios. Often, beets go with sugar and a number of chefs use candid nuts.

However, Ponstay prefer a red beet ice cream that he differentiates with a warm goat cheese pie. The mushroom ravioli is also excellent. Bellamy’s has employed a committed and dedicated team. From chefs to the servers that describe each meal’s intricate details in the most effective way, Bellamy’s has become the favorite restaurant for many people.

HOW WE AT WHITE SHARK TAKE THE BAD AND TURN IT INTO SOMETHING GOOD

It’s not secret that there’s always going to be a complaint with someone. You are never going to make everyone happy. You can’t spend the rest of your life chasing after someone, trying to make them happy. Either, they person is happy or they are not.

This sort of logic can definitely be applied to those operating a business too. Today we will be speaking with the company White Shark Media. Some of you might be familiar with this company, while others might not know White Shark exists.

We wanted to know how a company like White Shark deals with customer complaints: https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/White-Shark-Media-Reviews-E1046701.htm. After all, it can’t be easy maintaining a successful business, while trying to fight off the skepticism.

“It’s not easy, no. We just try to maintain a level head. We try to focus on the bigger picture. As long as we are keeping the majority of our customers happy, than a few criticisms are not going to hurt us. We do try to do something about it though. We do try to figure out a way to turn that negative into a positive. Sometimes it takes a little extra effort, but it does pay off in the end.”

–Rep from White Shark Media

We asked this rep how they do deal with the criticisms. Is there a “plan of action” in place to try to keep the skepticism at bay?

“Actually, yes there is a plan of action. We sit down and see what is working for us at the moment and what is not. Sometimes a customer is responding negatively to a product or plan of action we tried long time ago. Unfortunately, sometimes we don’t have the time to get rid of those things that aren’t working right away. This is where the problem is coming from.”

“So we have employed a special group to help us out with this. Their job is to look through everything, all our products and services. Their job is to get rid of the old and bring froward the new.”

What about the ads? Do they play a role in how the customer receives what you are offering? Do the ads cause more complaints, depending on the content of the ad?

“Actually, we do have someone looking at the ads right now. Some people do respond negatively to some of our ads. Sometimes the end up being too behind the times. Other times the ads tend to strike a negative chord within the person. What we are trying to do is create a balance. We want to spring forward and move with the times. This is where some of the negativity comes from. Some don’t like change. Our team is in charge of all these goals.”

3 Reasons You Need To Invest In Gold Right Now

3 Reasons You Need To Invest In Gold Right Now

Throughout the course of history gold has been known as one of the best assets to own. This is because no matter what’s going on in the economy on retailmenot.com, gold never loses its intrinsic value. As a matter of fact, the value of gold continues to rise according to US Money Rserve in the midst of economies all over the world struggling.

Here are just three of the many reasons you should invest in gold right now:

Reason #1 – The Demand For Gold Continues To Increase

Between 2004 and 2013 the demand for gold increased by 70%. This according to the GFMS Gold Survey 2014. To prove this point even further, according to CNBC, over 800 tons of gold was liquidated from EFT holdings in 2013.

Reason #2 – Gold Is Becoming Harder and Harder To Find

When it comes to gold its all about scarcity. This is because no one really knows just how much gold there is in the earth. And due to the rising costs associated with mining deeper, there is a good chance it will remain a rare commodity.

According to SNL Metals Economics Group, the amount of gold discovered fell sharply over the last 10 years. That means gold is becoming harder and harder to find with each passing year based in US Money Reserve. That also means now is the time to get on board.

Reason #3 – Global Unrest

Sadly enough the price of gold is greatly affected by war, terrorism and nuclear threats. During times of turmoil people seek out precious metals such as gold as a way to protect their wealth. When this happens the price of gold increases due to the demand according to US Money Reserve.
