Boraie Takes Part in Developers Panel, Discusses What’s Working For Newark

The City of Newark has been experiencing a renaissance the past few years; boosting revenue in the form of residents, businesses, and opportunities. The Newark Commercial Real Estate Summit brought together key players in real estate, urban development, investment, and city planning for a panel discussion where participants conveyed their ideas and feelings about recent positive changes to the blueprint for the reboot of Newark. Development firms that can build the kind of attractions that will bring traffic to a city have long had a bigger vision for Newark; but only recently found themselves with a city administration that was on the same page. As detailed here:, contractors are excited to be able to make a difference and have waited for the opportunity to work on a number of projects. Waseem Boraie, whose company Boraie Development plays a prominent role in the ongoing makeover of Newark, is one developer who approves of the city’s new plan for growth. In the past it was believed that a single ambitious project was all that was needed to jump start renewed interest in Newark. In green-lighting five to ten large scale projects to be ongoing simultaneously; the city administration is trying a new plan that in Boraie’s estimation will ultimately mean success of the new and improved Newark.

Other panelists concur with Boraie: allowing that the diversification of ongoing projects, and the increase in the number of large scale developments, will prove attractive to prospective residents, businesses, and capital from private investors. Richard Tucker of Tucker Development Corp. affirmed that his company’s successes, including the Courtyard by Marriott that opened in 2012, and the upcoming Springfield Avenue Marketplace, were enabled not by a single source but from a variety of investors and subsidies. Jose Cruz, a managing director with HFF Brokerage, sees the scope of projects finally in the works in Newark attracting capital from the kinds of investors who previously would never have strayed too far from Manhattan.

As vice president of Boraie Development LLC, Wasseem Boraie is no stranger to successfully revitalizing New Jersey cities. The oldest of company founder Omar Boraie’s three children watched father bring new life to New Brunswick starting in the 1970’s. From past experience Wasseem knows what’s necessary to build a city to its full potential, and the overall tone of the panel discussion falls in agreement.

Members of Venezuela Military Caught Stealing Goats

In a recent article, CNBC reported that six soldiers from the Venezuelan military were caught stealing goats. The soldiers freely confessed to the crime and noted that there are not enough resources in the barracks for them to eat on a regular basis. While this incident is alarming, it is simply one of the most recent occurrences to hit headlines as a result of the collapsing economy in Venezuela.
The country is currently experiencing massive power shortages as a result of a drought, which according to expert Jose Manuel Gonzalez has crippled the ability to produce hydro-power from the country’s main dam. With crude oil prices at a serious low and the country having to cut back on all sorts of production due to the lack of power, Venezuela is facing a serious crisis. As a result, its citizens are struggling to feed themselves and their families. Unemployment rates are also projected to continue to rise in coming months. There seems to be little strategy or response from the national government in confronting these issues other than cutting back on production and trying to ration out resources more stringently.

Experts are hoping that these headlines on Facebook are a wake up call to the rest of the world to start paying attention to the crisis in Venezuela. It remains to be seen which forms, if any, of international aid will be offered to the country to try to keep it from absolute collapse.


Allure Interviews Marlena Stell and Learns More About Makeup Underdogs

An interview between Allure and Marlena Stell of Makeup Geek offered some insight as to why beauty products that appear on Instagram are seemingly more popular than big makeup corporations. The founder of the unique makeup line discussed some key points for those attempting to promote their beauty products, and even why she believes that their success is radiating as much as their flawless foundations and color palettes. The beauty blogger turned makeup industry guru is an advocate for quality products that will never break your budget.

When asked why these underdogs are taking the top spots in the popularity contest, Marlena responded with the fact that they have a stronger online presence. Describing how taking to social media allows you to sell directly to customers on a global market, Makeup Geek’s founder also discussed how big name companies sell to other big name companies, rather than prospective consumers. Stell also discussed how big companies do not follow trends, and only rely on the basis that earned them their success. Essentially saying that famous makeup corporations become torpid.

Stell was also asked what sets these underdog products apart from drugstore makeup. Her answer being that, though drugstores have stepped their beauty games up, products shown on popular social media are of higher quality. She also stated how they offer more than the generic colors found in the drugstore. By lacking vibrancy, you lose an entire audience of people, which can truly be detrimental to a company. While this interview offered some stellar insight into the makeup industry, it also allowed readers to validate their reasons for relying on top makeup bloggers for their beauty advice.

Her passion for blogging is just an added bonus to her love of anime, Vampire Diaries, and Dexter binges. Offering the public an insight into her daily beauty rituals, favorite products, dieting secrets, and general lifestyle, the beauty blogger will only continue to grow in global popularity.

His love of music went together with his love for his son in creating Autism Rocks. With it, he partners with the music industry to present celebrations that also serve as a funding stream for research into this heartbreaking disorder.

Before his son became ill, however, he had successfully launched Solo Capital. The company is a boutique financial services firm located in London, and is fully licensed and regulated to operate there. It focuses in proprietary trading, consulting and professional sports investments.

No Power For Hours

Venezuela has hit an all-time low when it comes to its economic and energy crisis. While the country can’t control the amount of rain that it receives, which leads to the water that it needs to provide electricity, it can determine the amount of power that residents have. In recent days as per slideshare report, the country has decided to ration the amount of electricity that residents use through the week. This is from one of the richest countries in oil supplies in the world. Households won’t have access to power for at least four hours each day. Residents who like to drink could also have to give up beer as one of the largest breweries goes without power as well. This is a decision that many people like David expected, but it still came as a surprise when officials made the announcement. There is no indication as to how long the restrictions will last.

George Soros Reveals Solutions to the Refugee Crisis in Europe

George Soros is known globally as an Open Society philanthropist with the mission of supporting freedom & human rights, democracy, and social justice. He wrote the book, Open Society: Reforming Global Capitalism on and discussed the need for alliance of democracy among world countries that should be governed by open societies principles.? Mr. Soros is recognized as a bestseller author and has written other books, including The Crash of 2008 and What It Means, The Alchemy of Finance, and The Bubble of American Supremacy. He recently wrote an article, Europe: A Better Plan for Refugees that was published by New York Review Daily on April 9th, 2016 and spoke about the refugee crisis in Europe and the problems with the asylum policy, which was created in February of this year. George Soros provided solutions to help resolve the problems and discussed deficiencies with the European asylum policy.

The first thing Mr. George Soros pointed out was that the policy negotiations didn’t include enough funds to accommodate the refugees. He wrote in the article that the policy has caused hundreds of asylum refugees in Greece to return to Turkey. Turkey is presently hosting more than two million refugees and has a backlog of over 200,000 applications for asylum. He also stated that policy isn’t of Europe, but negotiated with Turkey and imposed on the country by Angela Merkel, a German Chancellor. The refugees aren’t permitted to enter Europe and are being forced to return to other countries.

George Soros believes the deficiencies in the asylum policy are correctable. Even the European Commission recognized some of the deficiencies in the policy during the first week of February. As Soros said in his article,
“there are insufficient facilities to accommodate the number of asylum refugees in Greece and the proposal by the Commissioners doesn’t help the refugees nor cooperative states with its compulsory quotas.” To rectify the problems in the policy on, the European Commission’s vice president, Frans Timmermans opened a debate to present arguments and solutions.

One of the first solutions George Soros suggested was that the policy should include a reasonable clause which allows refugees to enter their desired European region. He emphasized that there aren’t enough funds required to efficiently respond to the crisis of refugees. The funds are needed to assist member states with the problems and the refugees in Europe who are in Greece and countries in the Middle East. The refugees in the Middle East are desperately in need of housing, work and schools for the children. Mr. Soros said that Europe needs approximately $34 billion yearly to maintain the escalating population and accommodate refugees in Turkey and supporting countries.

George Soros founded the New York Open Society Institute in 1993 and opened the first office in Moscow in 1987. He is bold in his belief that world governments are responsible to their citizens, a concept introduced by Karl Popper. Currently, there are Open Society offices in more than 70 countries. He has written several books and articles about democracies and humanitarian relief for refugees.
