The Path of the SEC Whistleblower

The Securities Exchange Commission is tasked with many important duties. The one most of the general public is familiar with would be the agency’s emphasis on insider trading. The motion picture Wall Street displaced the nefarious things dishonest people do to earn money via cheating on publicly traded stocks. Insider trading, while serious, is not the only thing the SEC checks into. There are untold scores of major financial regulations on the books. All of these rules and regulations must be followed. Unfortunately, the SEC is not always aware of what is going on in the financial world. This is why SEC whistleblowers are so important.

Whistleblowers not only help the government agency. They are helping their fellow citizens when they reveal wrongdoings being performed by dishonest persons who should know better.

Under the law, money accepted for a particular investment has to go into that investment. What if a broker were to take money from a client and use it for different purposes? What if money intended to be directed towards real estate investments was directed towards precious metals? The simple answer here is fraud has been committed. Sadly, people who are the victims of these types of frauds do not find out until it is too late. And they often end up losing a lot of money in the process.

Someone on the inside may know about the wrongdoing that is occurring. If anyone in the know speaks out, a lot of terrible things won’t be imposed upon those innocent persons who do not realize they are being cheated.

In the aftermath of the disastrous 2008 global financial meltdown, legislation was passed by the Congress. Dubbed the Dodd-Frank bill after its authors, the bill tightened up many rules related to the financial industry. The huge bill also contained additional protections for whistleblowers. Those who are seriously worried about recriminations after going public on things they report on can look towards this law as a protector.

The law could also be looked at as a means of becoming financially independent. Huge financial rewards are possible based on the legislation. Percentages of fines paid to the government would be “commissioned” to those who speak out.

Handling the duties of blowing the whistle may not be easy. The process may be both new and frightening. Through the help of a SEC whistleblower attorney, things could be easier to handle and become more productive.

Is Wen Right for Your Hair?

If you have ever suffered through a sleepless night watching  QVC infomercials, you are almost certainly familiar with Wen hair products by Chaz Dean, the deep-cleaning conditioner meant to replace your entire morning haircare routine. If you’ve seen these infomercials, you have almost certainly wondered about the efficacy of the product and how true-to life they are, or simply whether it would be appropriate for your hair type. Well, if you have fine hair like Emily McClure, her article on Bustle.com may help answer these questions for you!
Ms. McClure used Wen exclusively for a week and reported her results, with pictures! If you do not want to read the article, here is what she found:

When she used Wen, Ms. McClure’s hair had shine and volume comparable to a full shampoo, condition and style treatment. Not only did she notice this herself, but her hair’s shine was commented on by her friends! She even noticed that, after using Wen hair in the mornings, the shine and volume would continue into the night. These results were consistent, as long as she remembered to wash her hair in the morning, it would stay voluminous and bright throughout the day.

Wen advertises itself as being suitable for all types of hair, and this testimonial seems to back that up! The routine required by Wen might take some getting used to if you do not normally wash in the morning, but it seems to live up to its claims of being able to replace the entire daily routine that many people–men and women– go through to get their hair looking the way that they want it to. Whether your hair is fine or thick, greasy or dry, it can not hurt to give Wen a try, and doing so just may change the way you approach hair care

All You Need to Know About Thor Halvorssen

Thor Halvorssen is currently the president of the Human Rights Foundation. The foundation is based in New York City, and it was launched in 2005 by the lawyer. Halvorssen parents were Norwegian and Venezuelan. Thor was born and raised in a town known as Caracas and he speaks American English. His paternal grandfather was a Norwegian King during the Second World War. His mother is also a descendant of the president of Venezuela, known as Crisobal Mendoza.

Thor Halvorssen is respected for his knowledge in human rights. He has fought for the rights of people in different parts of the world, including his own country. While he was working in Venezuela as a drug czar, Thor was able to expose the corruption that was taking place in the government. However, this exposure made his father to be tortured in a prison in Caracas. A contributor for the Huffington Post, Halvorssen also lost his mother after she was shot during an anti- Hugo Chavez demonstration. One of his cousins is also serving his time in prison in Venezuela after challenging the Chavista regime.

Thor is quite different from the other individuals in the human rights docket. Most of them spend their time stereotyping their sad sack. He rarely spends his time talking about the sour world we are living in or the evils in the American hegemony. He doesn’t behave like his colleagues who pretend to hate people but love humanity.

The re-owned lawyer loves people. Most of the people he loves are the defectors, dissidents, the freedom trouble makers and those who like throwing blows to the authorities while ensuring that they fight for the tyranny.

Thor appointed Václav Havel to serve as the chairman of Human Rights Foundation up to 2011 when he died. After Havel’s death, Thor appointed Garry Kasparov from Russia. Garry is a well- known political activist and Russian chess master. Although the title is not too ceremonial, most of the individuals appointed were carried away after being beaten by the police during the protests.

In his position, Thor Halvorssen has also had a rough time. He has had his share of problems. He was once arrested and detained by the Vietnamese police when travelling to Ho Chi Minh City for an interview.

Many start ups are not as popular, but Just Fab keeps gaining steam. Some start ups have laid off employees and others have reported losses or even closed their doors. JustFab reported their first major profits in the first quarter of 2016.

If Just Fab stays on this track, they could make an upwards of 650 million, which is an increase of 505 million from the previous year. Adam Goldberg, co-founder, says the company is ready to take it to the next level. Some changes include a name change to be revealed in August, and the addition of Todd Tappin, who is known for taking companies public.

This company allows customers to choose if they will buy items or adjust membership as needed. The wide variety of clothes and brands is what has kept JustFab ahead of the game and still growing.

Wen by Chen Gets Good Report for All-In-One Hair Care Product

The market is literally inundated with hair care products, promising magic and beauty in moments. Now what if a reporter of a story personally evaluated one of these products? What if that individual would compile daily reports of the results, complete with pictures? This is exactly what happened when a reporter from Bustle decided to report on one of these products, http://www.bustle.com/articles/136320-i-used-cleansing-cleansing-conditioner-on-my-fine-hair-heres-what-happened.

That product is the WEN Hair Cleansing Conditioner, promising to deliver cleaner, shiny and thicker full hair, especially designed for those with thin hair. The woman reporting the story even took pictures every day, including one before she even began using the product.

The Wen by Chaz Dean line is not unknown, it is in fact a quite famous and popular long running line of hair care and beauty products. Not unlike many of these types of products, Wen by Chaz is that combination product, a all-in-one shampoo, conditioner and in this case styling treatment.

The line of product the writer chose was called the “Fig” version, promising shine, bounce and moisture. The results were impressive, and watching (literally, via the photos) the progress and change of her hair condition was eye opening. The writer herself was obviously pleased with the results, and declared the Wen Hair Cleansing Conditioner to be, “…great”.

The only potential consideration was the expected issue of such soft and shiny hair holding a curl as effectively, aside from that one concern it seems this product is a winner. The only other noteworthy point from the writer’s view was that this product needed to be used appropriately, so a less motivated person might prefer a different product for daily use. That’s hardly criticism, in any event this is just another product that speaks as to why Wen by Chaz continues to find success, and brings smiles to many consumers – and some good looking hair too. Wen hair products are Sephora available and can be ordered online via Amazon.

Investment Lessons To Consider Before Investing In Brazil by Igor Cornelsen

Investing is a long-term bid for investors which involves risks but with the probability to gain significantly. On the other hand, if you are the type of investor who want to play with the market through speculation it will be hard for you to find success. According to Igor Cornelsen, most investments are not suitable for speculation and the current perception that you can play with the stocks to gain is one Cornelsen calls “pretty ridiculous.”

Igor Cornelsen is a long term investor who plays the game of investment to make profits that last a lifetime. According to Cornelsen, investing is a career move something you should be prepared to do for many decades if you are a person looking for legitimate returns that can last. It is possible to get returns that go up to 500 percent when you are committed to playing the game for life. The stock market is not a place where you make quick cash and get away from it; it is a place where you invest your money intelligently to get returns that will shape your entire life.

The strategy is to make many small investments and not a large one. It is usually another mistake new investors make because they want to get big returns. It is a fundamental rule to refrain from committing to one particular stock. When you commit your money to many investments, you limit the extent of the losses you potentially take. Also, there is a higher chance you may get successful with some of the investments.

Igor Cornelsen – Colorado, Bainbridge Investments

Whether you’re investing in commodities or foreign exchange…

This theory of investment can be applied by the Brazilian banks who are experiencing hard economic times since Dilma Rousseff started implementing her populist policies. Igor Cornelsen believes that the secret to survive in the market lies with having the knowledge about the market, and the right experience during the turbulent years. The reason private bankers have not been affected greatly by the environment is the fact that they lend to borrowers who are worthy of the credit. This strategy has helped them to streamline costs and improve a sense of security going forward.

Regarding the country’s development, this is a challenge, but it is the responsibility of the Brazilian government to make the investors feel secure and instill more market-oriented reforms. Brazil has good opportunities for investors and all the government need to do is provide the appropriate climate for investors to thrive. Before an investor considers to invest in Brazil, it is important to take note of the basics of Brazilian banking. Some of the basics include; take note of the ten major players in the banking industry, monitor the real value of the currency, and pay attention to China.

The Broader Appeal of Compliance

Compliance, as a subject, likely elicits two universal truths. First, there are too many rules for most businesses to adhere to, and second, few individuals in a corporate setting generate as much dismay as the companies compliance officer.

In some of the more free-wheeling eras of loosened regulatory oversight and decreased emphasis on playing by the rules government agencies put in place, compliance was nowhere nearly as important as it is today. Regardless of political or social views, nobody could deny that the increasing connectivity of the information age has allowed a number of government and regulatory agencies far greater abilities to actively check for any misdeed by a company.

The result is simple: compliance is no longer an after thought or a some scolding headmistress who raps ill-behaved children on the wrist. Compliance has become a critically important component of a successfully run business.

Given the enhanced abilities of the regulators at this point in time, compliance officers are actually gaining a great deal of authority and influence in modern workplaces. In fact, the new ‘brand’ of compliance at work is going beyond simply obeying the rules – in some cases, compliance officers are tasked with guiding companies towards an ethical set of guidelines. This is the sort of value-added position that requires companies to hire impressively credentialed individuals for a job that used to be seen as little more than internal control.

Consider the case of Helane Morrison, for example. Morrison had been a chief regulator in the San Fransisco of the SEC. Morrison went a from steely-eyed regulator in a major SEC office, to being poached by a prestigious financial firm that installed her as the chief officer of compliance. A lawyer by trade, Morrison is at least notable enough to have a quote of some moderate fame, from the famous case of Metropolitan Real Estate.

Given the rigorous regulatory requirements of financial markets, it makes sense to hire someone from a regulatory agency to look into compliance. Should other industries be as compliance conscious as finance?

Considering fines levied against energy companies, such as new fines in Colorado, for example, it seems plausible that compliance might become an increasingly important aspect of corporate governance. Also consider that government regulations might change at any moment, causing industry leaders to fail.

It seems obvious that compliance officers are more important than ever. Now that the office both maintains regulatory compliance and functions as an ethical compass, it is clear that the broader appeal of compliance will only grow in influence in the future.
