Even though the Koch brothers have been involved in politics for a long time, they have only recently made the headlines during Obama’s term in office. As a result, there are plenty of myths that are believed about the Koch brothers. However, these myths can be easily exposed and fought. A lot of these myths are not flattering to the Koch brothers, but only because they are myths. One thing that Charles Koch is very passionate about is making sure the truth is known so that people can judge them more accurately.
Among the myths of the Koch brothers are five particular myths that are commonly believed about them. One myth is that the Koch Network has been formed in reaction to President Obama. The second myth is that only the Koch Brothers run the Koch Network. The third myth is that the Koch Network is just a front for their corporation. The fourth myth is that the Koch Network is merely a bank that funds conservatives.
Charles Koch, who is one of the Koch brothers believes in creating opportunity. Charles holds the belief that Welfare programs and other types of hand outs prolong the problems of poverty. Koch believes that welfare is a two-fold blow against progress for the unfortunate. For one thing, it takes away from the revenue that businesses generate which gets in the way of it providing wages to its workers. Koch instead hopes to inspire people to look for new opportunities and to think outside the box in order to bring forth better success to their lives. They also speak at events in order to talk about the importance of encouraging people to pursue financial independence.
OrganoGold is the brain child of Bernardo Chua. As the owner and founder of the company, he originally traveled the world and during his travels experienced some truly amazing beverages around the world. He was taken back by how many quality products were available outside of the United States yet not offered in the U.S. This is namely true with beverages. He has found that most beverages within the United States are now especially sweet and contain far too much sugar. The products, which might have started off desirable, now contains so much sweet elements to the beverages it no longer is healthy for those to drink. That is exactly why Bernardo decided to create his own beverage company in order to provide quality products to the rest of the world. This way, for individuals who are tired of just drinking sweet beverages every single day, there is a new option and one that is able to provide a quality offering that not only is healthy but comes with substantial health benefits.
Bernardo and OrganoGold focus on three main areas of beverage: coffee, tea and chocolate. When looking at offerings within the U.S., most people would agree there is a large abundance of sweetness injected into the products. Hot chocolate is made with milk chocolate, which has a large amount of sweetener added to it in order to make up for the more bitter flavor of chocolate. This is especially true with coffee. Even “black” coffee now contains flavored beans that have been soaked in a sweetener. Bernardo has a selection of products that provide a delicious and healthy option for those individuals who want the alternative. Bernardo talks what the brand has to offer on Facebook all the time.
There are several different coffee flavors available from the company. The coffee offerings are the best selling products form OrganoGold. There is the traditional Black coffee, although this actually is black. It is a strong flavored coffee that is designed for the true coffee lover out there. Naturally, not all coffee beans taste the same, so finding the right kind of coffee bean is important. Beyond all of this, there is the cafe latte offering, which has a more mellow taste, and then the cafe mocha, which comes with a hint of chocolate at the end. Check out this speech from Bernardo Chua to his employees for better insight into what motivates the man and his company.

Avi Weisfogal, the legendary dentist of New Jersey, recently announced his GoFundMe project with the Operation Smile as the final destination of all the funds collected. The latter organization is a massive charity project that began in 1982, courtesy of Bill Magee as well as Kathy Magee, with the aim to help the children all around the world for the surgeries upon congenital structural defects of the face, such as cleft lips. Apart from lip defects, the cleft palate defects are also very common. Weifogal has set a huge target of $2000 for his GoFundMe campaign.
This is not the first time Avi Weisfogal has been in focus for the media. For New Jersey, he is the master dentist with a revolutionary mind. In his early days, Avi studied at Rutgers University, later moving to New York for DDS.
Ever since he became a dentist, Avi has been interested in problems of apnea and the contributing factors. Unfortunately, apnea has not been taken as seriously as it should have been in the past years. Avi Weisfogel realized that it could have drastic effects on the behavior of a person and in turn the efficiency of work performance. Being a man who dealt with oral perfection, he came to a conclusion that one of the most important and common contributing factors for apnea are the defects in the development of the various structures of the face. He has already been conducting seminars to put forward his hypotheses and seek solutions, and to emphasize that apnea is a correctable disorder that should be corrected.
The GoFundMe idea is the result of the same philanthropic thinking that inspired Weisfogal to work through organizations he had himself established for the control of apnea. According to Avi, Operation Smile is a highly efficient and successful charity organization and therefore, would put the money to good use. At an age of only 34 years (approximately), the organization has conducted 220,000 operations for the facial defects of children completely free of charges. The organization brings together philanthropists from all over the world. At present, it proudly lists people who have come forward to help the children from 80 different countries.

Yeonmi Park is a courageous individual with a dramatic life story. Now in her twenties, Yeonmi Park was born in North Korea. Although the government North Korea was and is a brutal dictatorship, Park’s family enjoyed relative privilege when she was young because her father was a government official, and she has many happy memories of her earliest years. Then, her father fell out of political favor. The family had to endure the same misery as ordinary North Koreans and even had to eat grass and insects in order to survive during food shortages.
Park and her mother fled into China, but their situation did not improve, and they were forced into the sex slavery. Again, Park escaped, this time to South Korea, where she became a human rights activist. She courageously spoke out against the tyrannical regime of dictator Kim Jong-un and did what she could to let the world understand how bad conditions in North Korea truly are for most people. She talked about the food shortages, lack of personal freedoms and government intrusions into the lives of North Korean citizens, and she made many in the western world aware of the falseness of North Korean propaganda.
The North Korean government is reported by NK News to struck back with a smear campaign designed to make Yeonmi Park look like a liar, but this strategy has not been effective. Park continues to advocate tirelessly for her fellow North Koreans still trapped in that country and has traveled widely on the university lecture circuit giving talks and presentations. Yeonmi Park has not been intimidated by North Korean threats, lies, and false personal attacks aimed at her character.
In virtually any job, using excellent interpersonal and written communication skills is vital to keeping everyone on the same page day after day. By putting people at ease and being able to explain difficult concepts and regulations in ways everyone can understand, a company can find itself staying ahead of its competitors. When it comes to using various forms of communication in order to keep a company running as smoothly as possible, nobody has a better grasp of the concept than Sam Tabar. By being able to utilize his education in order to help his clients, Sam has proven just how important communication skills can be within the financial industry.
Having been trained as an attorney, Sam knows all too well the value of great communication skills. This was evident during his stay at Columbia Law School, where he spent time as the editor of the Columbia Business Law Review. Seeing just how powerful discussions of important topics could be to everyone, Sam always remembered this as he started his career. While beginning as an attorney with a leading law firm, he spent his time working with individuals and companies to develop contracts related to the structuring and formation of hedge funds. Along with this, Sam also advised clients on how to deal on Twitter with critical situations related to employment law and compliance issues.
However, in spite of the success he had during this time, Private Equity Wire shows Sam was prepared to go in a new direction and begin a new chapter in his professional life. Having made this decision, he left the law firm and instead chose to accept a position with PMA Investment, where he was given tremendous responsibility within the company. Hired to be the firm’s Lead Capital Strategist as well as its Head of Business Management, Sam was allowed to use his knowledge and creativity in unison to develop strategies that would work on a national as well as international scale.
Once he began moving forward in this position, word began to spread around the industry that Sam was an analyst who also happened to be the best strategist in the industry. Always knowing he had what it would take to make it big in the world of finance, Sam is always ready for the next challenge. Check out Mr. Tabar’s GoFundMe for a different angle on where he’s going next.
