Sergio Cortes Explains the Transmission and Dangers of Zika Virus

The first evidence of Zika virus emerged in the 1940s, and was first identified in Uganda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and other African countries. According to Dr. Sergio Cortes, the virus also spread throughout Asia, reaching places like India and Thailand, over the years.
In 2015, the Zika virus began to circulate in nine Latin American countries, including Mexico, Colombia, and Brazil. The WHO (World Health Organization) was alarmed enough to issue a warning about the dangers of the disease. This summary will focus on the Zika virus’s origins and possible role in other diseases.

The first cases of Zika virus in Brazil occurred in April. Since then, the steady increase in the number of cases of the disease has health experts in that country worried.

The Zika virus is not contagious and cannot be transmitted from one person to another. An person can only get the disease through the bite of the mosquito Aedes aegypti. The problem is when an uninfected mosquito bites a person with the Zika Virus, the mosquito becomes contaminated. From there, the mosquito transmits the disease to those who are subsequently bitten, thus generating a hard-to-control chain reaction. Incidentally, mosquitoes transmit dengue fever and chikungunya by that method.

Overall, the Aedes aegypti prefers to lay her eggs in clean water and virtually any location serves as breeding. Even bottle caps with standing water, Cortes notes, can serve as mosquito breeding ground. However, it can adapt to different situations, and can reproduce in waters containing organic materials. Sergio Cortes cites a recent study that proves the eggs of Aedes aegypti can remain inert in a local dry land for up to one year, waiting for any contact with the water to develop.

While the symptoms of Zika virus can be quickly controlled and cured, what worries doctors is that there is a proven link between Zika virus and microcephaly. Doctors also speculate that the Zika virus may be connected with Guillain-Barré syndrome, a very serious neurological and autoimmune disease.

The Brazilian Ministry of Health confirmed the link between the virus and microcephaly at the end of August. The Ministry of Health found to the most affected regions with cases of microcephaly had Zika virus outbreaks months before. The link to Guillain-Barré syndrome comes from many cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome arising after viral or bacterial infection.

Soros Urges EU Leader To Turn To Hope, Not Fear In Face Of Refugee Crisis

Imagine being born Jewish in Budapest, Hungary, in 1930. At such a young age it would be difficult to see just how destructive the Nazis would be, but all the anti-Semitism would most definitely strike fear into your heart. Now imagine that your father has secured false papers and has changed your last name to avoid Nazi persecution. Then the inevitable happens. The Nazis occupy your home city and do not allow you to go to school. Your father narrowly fools the Nazis as they hunt for Jews in the city. After the war comes to a close, your family loses everything. Would you want to stay in Hungary?
That’s exactly what happened to George Soros, the world renowned hedge fund billionaire, when he was a young boy. His family decided not to stay and fled to the United Kingdom. He scraped pennies, put himself through college and found his success. Now the 85-year-old is semiretired and devotes his time to philanthropy, promoting progressive values and open societies around the globe. But you can understand why this most recent Syrian refugee crisis in the European Union is so troubling to him.

George Soros knows exactly what is at stake, in a humanitarian sense and an economic sense. That’s why he thinks that the European Union is on the verge of collapse. He knows that a tsunami of penniless refugees could tear down the economy of the European Union. After all, refugees need to be housed, fed and assimilated; and that all costs money. But he also knows that these refugees need to have a chance just like the chance he got after World War II.

The landscape in Europe has changed. Soros now sees German Chancellor Angela Merkel as the leader of the free world and he is pointing to her to show strong leadership in order to ease this humanitarian and economic crisis. The humanitarian crisis is obvious. Families escaping Syria pile into dilapidated boats in order to reach the shores of Europe. Boats have been known to sink in some countries in Europe have been known to turn refugees away. This puts their lives in danger.

But the economic crisis is also evident to George Soros according to NY Books. He sees the need for hope. These refugee families must be given the hope of a future, but all he sees his fear. After the terror attacks in Paris, Europeans are more likely to fear refugees than to take them in. It is now Germany’s turn to step up to the plate; to shine a light on the open door for people in need. If all the European Union countries work together they can vet and absorb refugees at a rate that will benefit the economy and strengthen the union. If they succumb to fear, the union falls apart.

The Unethical and Foolish Practices Of Kyle Bass

However, this wasn’t true of everybody. UsefulStooges identified that Kyle Bass successfully predicted that the 2008 stock market crash was on the horizon. He also predicted the subprime mortgage crisis. Due to this, he gained an extraordinary amount of credibility. However, he lost this credibility just as readily. Kyle Bass has now made incredibly foolish career moves that have caused him to be seen highly poorly by almost everyone. He also has been seen as extremely unethical. In fact, he became an ally to foreign politicians that are known to cause serious economic problems and suffering in their country.

First off, Kyle Bass tends to make a lot of predictions about the economy. However, these days, the predictions never seem to come true. He really has a lot of stuff to say, but it is essentially erroneous commentary about what is going to happen with the economy. He also has a way of frequently going on television. However, these appearances have included him giving incorrect predictions and presenting himself in a bad way. These appearances haven’t been very monetarily productive for him. However, he continues to go on television. Not only that, but he goes on television more these days. However, the total amount that he has made from his television appearances is on the decline.

Kyle Bass seems to support the Argentine politicians that are wrecking the Argentine economy. He even supports Cristina Kirchner. She is known to be causing economic pain to many Argentines. However, Kyle Bass appears to be a very strong supporter of her. It is strange that Kyle Bass would support her. He is not a native of Argentina, and he is a United States citizen. The fact that he would support a bad Argentine politician is truly mysterious.

However, among the worst of Kyle Bass’ recent career moves has been what he’s doing to drug companies. He essentially has a scheme set up where he essentially scams drug companies. His scheme has caused many people to die, due to lack of access to effective medical care. However, Kyle Bass ignores this. His interests are solely in making money off of this scheme.

Kyle Bass used to be seen as one of the greatest investment experts. However, he’s seen in a completely opposite way now. He is seen as one of the most unethical and foolhardy businessmen. He’ll likely continue to be seen badly by the world. However, there are indications that his image will continue to decline. His profits are likely to decline over the years, as well.

What Brad Reifler Recommends Doing To Get Involved With Investment

Money is something we all deal with. Money is something that can bring us both good and bad times. The idea is to bring out more of the good times. This is exactly why we are here today.

Brad is CEO of Forefront Capital. He sat down for an online interview recently to give a refresher course on money.  Wikipedia shows that Brad has a ton of experience in the business world.

“Money is something that you always have to pay attention to. Money is like a relationship with your partner. You constantly have to know what is both right and wrong. You have to work at it. Otherwise, it’s something you just throw down the drain.”

There is a right way to handle money and investments and a wrong way as Brad Reifler’s Reuters investment tips showcases. Today, we are here with Brad to discuss the right ways. We asked Brad about the stock market. We wondered how good of an idea it is to put all your money into it.

“The stock market can be pretty destructive. It can work for you and against you. This is why it’s a good idea to have other plans. The stock market is good for some things, but you still need a backup plan.”

“I tell my clients they need to have a game plan. They need to know what they want to achieve within a certain time frame. It’s not good enough to come in and say that you want to make money. This is too simple. I need to know how you want to achieve this. I also need to know how much money a client is willing to invest in their dream. I also try ti impress upon my clients the value of diversification. You can get more flies with honey. It’s time to apply this to investments and money.”

We asked Brad about the direction of his own firm. We wondered if he was worried, given the state of certain financial institutions.

“It’s something I worry about, yes. This is why I have decided to go in and restructure everything. We always had this idea that using accredited people was the only way to go. These are the people who pull down at least $200,000 + a year. We realized that we were leaving lots of options off the table. Other people want to get involved. We are just looking to find a way to make this possible, even for those who aren’t making lots of money.”  He’s said on many forums, including from Brad Reifler’s Twitter.

“I think it’s wrong to keep the 99% out of the loop. These people have something of value to offer. I am looking to reinvent the wheel so that those without money can get the same rewards.”  There’s more information about Brad Reifler available on his About.me page.

Sergio Cortes Speaks Out About The Flooding Situation in Xerem

At certain times of the year, rain can cause a problem. Even in nations that are used to heavy rains, officials may face problems that result from a long period of heavy and continued rain. Rain that stays in a given area may cause problems that make it very hard for those living there to carry out their daily activities. People may even be unable to live in their houses because such homes have been flooded from the problems with rain. Those who face such problems may also face other issues such as lack of access to potable water and even the possibility of contracting a serious disease.

This issue reported by Atanews has been a problem in an area of Brazil in recent weeks. Xerem, a part of Brazil located near Rio, has been subject to a great deal of rain. Many residents have been startled by the intensity of the rains here. They have also been caught unaware of the rains and have needed help them cope with their problems. Health officials in the region such as Sergio Cortes have rushed to provide for the needs of those residents who may not have access to important basics here such as clean water and a dry place to sleep. Reporters at Extra have sought out his thoughts on the current crisis and what he and other health officials are doing to provide for the needs of those who live in this area.

Cortes is a medical doctor who has been part of the efforts here. He is a health official who knows what kind of steps are needed to make sure that no additional problems from the floods in this region. This is why he and other officials here caution that it is important to provide the right kind of aid to residents. One of their aims at this point in time is to make sure all residents have access to water that is clean. This is why officials have helped bring bottled water. Water that is contaminated as a result of floods can have problems that may include the spread of dangerous and contagious diseases. Niteroi reports that Cortes and other officials urge those wanting to donate to help flood victims to consider donating bottled water to help in such efforts. They urge residents to use such water at all times.

Compliance Officers Must Be Trained To Get Rid Of Corporate Scandals

Recently, compliance officers have filled the market. However, despite their growing numbers, they have not been able to end the many problems facing corporates concerning scandals and frauds. In a recent report by a famous consulting company called Sterling Management, consulting officers are not doing their job perfectly. Sterling Management is located in Los Angelis.

The CEO of Sterling Management is Mr. Kevin Wilson. According to Wilson, the problems faced in organizations as a result of fraud and other scandals cannot come to an end because the officers in the field do not have the right skills, knowledge and power. These officers have no idea what to do when these problems occur. They are supposed to identify the problem before it gets out of hand.
According to Mr. Wilson, these compliance officers’ positions are held by individuals who have not been trained, lack authority and some of them do not even fit for the department. In most cases, the compliance officers are too busy handling other duties and this makes them forget the real problems and this can make the organization can collapse.
The salary offered to the compliance officers is quite worrying, and this affects their work a lot. Just recently, there were some problems faced by the Volkswagen manufacturing company. The software cheating led to a lot of damages to the brand, and this could have been avoided if the officers were well paid. In 2013, they were getting only $64340 every month, and this made them cheat just to get bonuses. The problem would have been detected early by the compliance officers if they really wanted to.
Helane Morrison is a reputable compliance officer who is respected by many in the industry today. She has other important positions too. She is managing director, general counsel and much more. Today, she is the chief compliance officer for Hall Capital Partners. She has been very successful in the male dominated career, and this has been possible because of the skills she possesses. Being a compliance officer is quite challenging, but she always performs her job well.
She has worked in other places before joining Hall Capital Partners. She was working for the United Sates Securities and Exchange Commission found in San Francisco. She held that position from 1999 to 2007. Helane had a lot of duties in that position, but she executed them perfectly. she has won several award in the industry too.
