He knew what he was doing, though, and he tried to make sure that he was doing everything that he could to help his clients get the best experience possible. When he was working to provide people with the information that they needed, it was something that allowed him the chance to experience all of the options that he had. He also wanted to make sure that people could get a better experience from the businesses that they were a part of and that they would all be able to make sure that things would work for the company. While Bruce Bent II was working to help build Double Rock back up into a viable company, he knew that he would have to make some changes to the options that he had available at that time.

He wanted to show people what they needed and what they could get out of the experiences that they had. While it was something that could impress people, it was also something that made it hard for the businesses to succeed and hard for them to have a positive revenue period. Bruce Bent II changed that all through the Double Rock Corporation.

End Citizens United Working Towards 2018 Elections

When discussing campaign finance reform, it is impossible to do so without mentioning the 2010 Supreme Court decision known as Citizens United. The decision allowed for corporations to be treated as people and allows for special interest groups to contribute money to United States elections. As the corporate money is not possible to trace and does not have the same limits as private citizens, it is a decision that allowed for elections to be bought.

 

The group leading the charge to overturn this decision is End Citizens United. As of April 2017, the group has amassed more than $4 million for the year, and projects that going into the pivotal 2018 mid-term elections they will raise more than $35 million. This is a dramatic increase from the $25 million raised for the 2016 election cycle, which was the group’s first election season since being founded.

 

Over 40,000 people contributed for their first time to any Political Action Committee as part of the overall estimated 100,000 contributors to End Citizens United. With average giving around $12 per person, it is truly a grass roots effort for citizens to impact the way in which their government is run.

 

Tiffany Muller, the president and executive director of End Citizen’s United, states the group is focusing on helping champions of campaign-finance reform win elections in the House and Senate. She also states the primary reason most donors cite for giving is they feel the current political system to be unfairly biased against them, and that those “who can write the biggest checks get the biggest say. This is their way of fighting back.”

 

The Trump victory was a blow which the PAC is working to fight against. A recent benefactor of End Citizens United work is Democrat Candidate Jon Ossoff, running in his first election for a Georgia congressional seat. Ossoff surprised many political pundits by raising over $4 million in his campaign to win the April 18 special election to fill a then-Republican House seat in an Atlanta-based district recently left vacant by Tom Price accepting the position of Health and Human Services Secretary.

 

The group is also planning to back 2018 elections for Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Jon Tester of Montana. Operating as a traditional Political Action Committee (instead of a Super PAC), the group is limited to receiving a maximum of $5000 per donor; End Citizens United ability to achieve the amount of fundraising it has accomplished has sparked renewed interest among other grassroots organizations devoted to campaign finance reform.

What you need to know about Kabbalah

Did you know that originally, kabbalah was thought t be so complicated that it could not be taught t anyone else apart from men who were at least 40 years of age? The main aim of these teachings, which have their origins in Judaism, is to try and explain the relationship between the unchanging, eternal and mysterious infinity and the universe as we know it. Most people have the misconception that Kabbalah religion, however, these teachings are not a religion, but are used by many religions.

Origins of Kabbalah

The origin of the teachings was within the Jewish tradition. This is why it is not uncommon to hear Kabbalists making use Jewish sources in their attempts to explain and make sense of esoteric teachings. It is however believed that Kabbalah may have existed even before all other world religions. As a matter of fact, it is believed to have formed the blueprint that formed creationist philosophies, political systems, religions and arts. Currently, the teachings are used by Judaists to try and explain the innermost meanings of the Hebrew bible and other rabbinic teachings.

Why kabbalah is a grossly misunderstood doctrine

This is probably one of the most misunderstood parts of Judaism. The misunderstandings started occurring when Christians, occultists, and mystics started defining the teachings warping them to fit their dogma. Recently, there have been people that try to use the teachings in activities such as tarot card reading, which distorts the true value of the teachings. The fact that celebrities are adopting this magic-like form distortion of the teachings does not make the case any better.

Is Kabbalah a belief in Magic?

Most people think of magic when they hear the word kabbalah. While it is true that the explanations original kabbalah gave about the universe and how it works contain some connection to magic, there is more to the explanations than that. There have been accounts of rabbis that performed acts that could be described as magic in the modern context. For instance, there was an account of one rabbi that created a man (golem) from clay and brought him to life by simply reciting the various names of God. While there may not be any evidence to show that this is no more than a legend, it is great to recognize that not all religions are willing to have faith as deep as the ones that adopt kabbalah related beliefs.

Changing the image of Kabbalah

The many misconceptions about the teachings are perhaps the reason why the true followers, rabbis and devout Judaists are coming up with Kabbalah centers around the world. These are non-profit organizations that provide courses about Zohar and other Kabbalistic teachings. The courses are available both online and through some of the regional centers that the founders have put up around the country. The headquarters of the school are in Los Angeles, California. There are other Kabbalah centers around the world, with another one being located in Europe.

About the founders

The founders kabbalah center are Philip Berg and his wife, Karen Berg. The two opened the center in 1984 and it has been growing ever since. The need to set the record straight about the true nature of the Kabbalistic teachings is what motivated the two to start the center. However, the original American center was founded in 1965 in New York City. This was after the death of the founder of the original center in Israel.

In order to understand the true nature of Kabbalah teachings, it is recommended that one familiarizes themselves with the center. If not able to get there physically, there are online classes that the centers offer. Their aim is to make sure that Kabbalah is used for its intended purpose only.

Doug Levitt Travels By Bus For “The Greyhound Diaries”

Few modern artists have shown such a dedication to the work they are creating as that shown by Doug Levitt to “The Greyhound Diaries”, a project that has been ongoing for more than a decade and has seen the former journalist and broadcaster travel by bus to various parts of the U.S. In recent years, the work conducted for “The Greyhound Diaries” has seen Doug Levitt asked to appear at various iconic locations across the country, including the Woody Guthrie Center and the Kennedy Center for the Arts; the influence of Woody Guthrie and his fellow 1930s artists has been easy to see in the work of Doug Levitt who sees the influence of the federally funded WPA broadcasts of “The Great Depression” as inspiration for his continued dedication to the project.

 

Doug Levitt is a thoroughly modern performer who has looked to many different avenues of media to get across the social points he is looking to make with this work that has a definite folk influence; Levitt has recently created a YouTube channel that is used to display the images and music created for the project. “The Greyhound Diaries” has seen Doug Levitt bring to light many of the stories of real life hardship caused by the 2008 economic slowdown, the effects of which Doug Levitt states are still being felt throughout many financially disaffected areas of the U.S.

 

Outside of the artistic work being created by Doug Levitt, the singer and performer has become a major campaigner for the rights of the disaffected across the U.S., including many homeless groups Levitt performs for when he travels to different areas of the nation. Before becoming involved in “The Greyhound Diaries”, Doug Levitt had been largely unaware of the problems facing members of society who were failing to be supported by many government agencies; born in Washington D.C. economic life was always something ignored by the residents of the U.S. capital who have rarely felt the effects of recession and economic troubles.

Talos Energy and Mexico Strike a Deal for Drilling

Energy has always been big business in Mexico. More specifically, it’s been a monopoly for decades, restricting investment in this economic sector from private and foreign money. So when Talos Energy entered the market it rightly caused a stir in the global energy industry.

In 2015 the Mexican government announced that it was looking at ways to open the country up and invite more private investment. This was when Talos Energy, in partnership with Sierra Oil and Premiere Oil, decided to lobby Mexico’s leadership for first-drilling rights in its waters, challenging a standing policy concerning their energy resources. More than a year in negotiations, and a $16 million agreement later, Mexico eased its policy, in place since 1938, to allow Talos Energy to drill.

The lift of this investment ban has speculators in the energy industry talking. Some are already arguing that it could wind up being the biggest energy news story of the year, not just for what’s happening because of this deal but because of what it can make possible. If Talos Energy is successful in its drilling operation and can form a positive working relationship with the Mexican government, they may be more receptive to letting more players into the country. similarly, other countries that have kept foreign companies away from oil reserves may see this as an opportunity to question existing policies.

Talos Energy an its partners have been drilling in the Zama-1 well, just off the Sureste Basin, since early May of this year. Projections from the company put production at somewhere between 100 and 500 million barrels of crude oil. But they’ll only have 90 days to complete their drilling efforts.

About Talos Energy:

Talos Energy is an oil and gas company in Houston, Texas. Since 2012 Talos Energy has managed shelf and deep-water drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico.

Talos Energy continues to be a leader in offshore exploration, developing efforts to discover wells in unexplored waters. This intrepid business model has attracted new technologies and innovative methods in energy production. Becoming a leader in the energy industry has allowed Talos Energy to become a leader in oil and a welcome partner to many international economies.
