Support Animal Shelters in New York City

The latest press release from Ross Abelow discusses his latest venture: fundraising for animal shelters. With GoFundMe’s resources, the donation covers food, medical care, and blankets for the lonely animals in New York City. When the shelters have adequate resources, they can assist animals in their care. It is definitely a start; however, he encourages everyone reading this to assist in his cause.

Since Mr. Abelow runs a law firm in New York specializing in family and matrimonial law, supporting a member of the family – the pet – comes naturally to him. His noble cause keeps animals alive in shelters and off dangerous streets. He also specializes in commercial litigation and entertainment law. Prior to opening his law firm, he defended clients for a living at Abelow & Cassandro, where he was a law partner for 26 years. Before the partnership, he earned his law license in 1990. A year before that he earned his law degree from Brooklyn Law School. Prior to that, he earned his bachelor degree in Political Science from the State University of New York at Albany. A long-time New York resident, he uses his law expertise to share his knowledge on guest blogs and his personal blog. He is also very active on social media.

As a result, more animals are on the streets. Homeless, sheltered, and vulnerable animals need your help. If you want to assist in the fundraiser or learn more information about this, go to the GoFundMe page or Ross Abelow’s website. He is speaking up for the animals that cannot speak for themselves, so let this motivate you to donate to your local animal shelter.

Human Rights Foundation Founder Thor Halvorssen Helps Those In Closed Societies

Closed societies are not the thing of the past we would all like them to be as dictatorships and criminal governments continue to oppress the people of the world. The Human Rights Foundation now seeks to publicize the plight of the people of the world who remain trapped in closed societies, usually operated under the iron grip of a dictator. Unlike many human rights groups the Human Rights Foundation is taking a proactive approach to the problems facing the people of the world by bringing their plight to major news organizations under the motto “To ensure that freedom is both preserved and promoted”.

Venezuelan author and film producer Thor Halvorssen established the Human Rights Foundation in 2005 after working with a number of human rights groups throughout his adult life. Halvorssen had originally been inspired to enter the charitable work surrounding the promotion of human rights after seeing various members of his own family have their human rights taken away for their political opposition to the ruling Venezuelan government.

Alongside his commitment to the Human Rights Foundation the top Hollywood film producer also finds the time to promote and organize the Oslo Freedom Forum; the forum was originally meant to take place as a one off event, but proved such a success it has been held each year since. The success of Thor Halvorssen’s event has seen events take place away from Oslo in cities across the U.S.

The Human Rights Foundation has been looking for the best ways of publicizing the issues of lost human rights since the group was formed in 2005; Thor Halvorssen has remained steadfast in his conviction to creating a politically independent group filled with those who are dedicated to the fight for freedom. The board of the Human Rights Foundation sees religious leaders like Archbishop Desmond Tutu sit alongside former political prisoners, and respected politicians as they work together to bring about change in the field of human rights.

Sam Tabar: The Keys to Strategic Planning

When it comes to strategic planning, there are many factors that come into play in order to achieve success. A thorough knowledge of finance and economics, along with an understanding of global marketing, all come together to ensure a firm successfully reaches its target core of investors. While in most firms there are many people in charge of strategic planning, there is often one member of the team who has an ability to think outside of the box and make things happen. Sam Tabar is one of those people, and over the years he has been able to develop plans for numerous companies that have resulted in enormous success.

As he continues to ascend to the top of his profession, Sam has said on Instagram he realizes it will take not only hard work and determination, but also a strong commitment to investors and their goals.

Charles and David Koch Refuse to Support Trump

On Tuesday, February 4, 2016, “Vanity Fair” writer Daniel Schulman published details from a recent conversation with billionaire Charles Koch that outlined a growing concern by the Koch Brothers about Donald Trump making headway in the presidential race. The article, titled “Can the Koch Brothers Stop Trump?,” outlined long-standing issues that the Koch Brothers have had with Trump and their reasons for not supporting him.

Although self-described as a classical liberal, Charles supports a Republican candidate as POTUS. He and his brother have been using their money steadily recently through a variety of fundraising and other campaigns to influence the outcome of the presidential race by aiding Republican efforts against Democrats. The Koch brothers do not support Trump because his world views differ so drastically with their own. In fact, Charles told Schulman that America’s free society would be destroyed if Trump’s “Muslim Registry” became any sort of reality. The brothers have even stopped inviting Trump to their political fundraising events.

As pointed out by Schulman, there are several problems with their attempts to influence the race and Trump:  Now there are billionaires everywhere backing different candidates with no clear winner coming out on top. Trump is preventing other Republican candidates from getting the support needed to win again Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. The Koch brothers could influence the race by putting all of their money to use attempting to block Trump’s campaign by pointing out through advertisements the many ways in which he has failed in business, but they risk Trump turning on them. On August 2, 2015, Trump made a jab at the brothers on Twitter when they refused to invite him to a fundraiser by wishing luck to other Republican candidates going to the Koch Brothers, as he put it, to “beg” for financial support.

At this point, Charles Koch and brother, David, are still debating how they will proceed going forward.

Charles Koch is the co-owner and CEO of Koch industries. He is a graduate of MIT with a General Engineering Bachelor of Science degree and two Master of Science degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Chemical Engineering, respectively.  In January of this year, Charles Koch’s net worth was $43.3 billion.
