Shervin Pishevar predicts decline in US economy growth in a tweet storm

Shervin Pishevar is a business mogul in the United States. He is one of the experienced angel investors and venture capitalist who has supported the growth of some of the brilliant Silicon Valley startups. Recently, Pishevar went on a tweet-storm indicating why he thinks the US economy is losing. He also gave his views on other topics such as globalization, cryptocurrencies and the bond market among other finance-related issues. The storm consisted of 50 consecutive tweets, each one of them indicating why he thinks the economic decline of the US economy is inevitable.

Shervin Pishevar is not a person who can be ignored when he talks about matters related to the financial industry. He understands them better than many other people. When he says that the US economy is on the decline, he has sufficient facts to support his argument. Let’s look at some of the tweets he posted.

Shervin Pishevar pointed to an end of an era for cheap money. He says that due to increasing interest rates it is now very hard to get cheap money. After a few years of deflation in many countries, inflation is now starting to show and investors are in a panic. Inflation gives bondholders sleepless nights since it leads to a decline in the fixed-rate payments as inflation goes up to match the interest rates. The New York Times reports also support his argument by showing that there is massive sell-off in the stock market which has led to the drop in the market.

Shervin Pishevar was not done yet; he touched on underemployment as one of the glaring nightmares to the economy of the United States. Overqualified and well-educated employees are being forced to take up jobs that require minimal skills. The jobs end up paying them poorly. This phenomenon is familiar to many people since we have seen our family members and friends choosing jobs that pay less since they do not get jobs in their areas of specialization.

All these issues paint a gloomy picture of the future of the economy. Pishevar believes that unless something is done, the fall of the US economy is unstoppable.

Whitney Wolfe And Bumble See Exciting Year With Expansion To India

the world of online dating can be intimidating especially to women who are far more likely to be inundated with unwelcome attention. This is why Whitney Wolfe worked with a group of close friends to create the female-centered dating app Bumble. In the last year or so, Bumble has been expanding dramatically by entering into more networks like friendship and business as opposed to exclusively dealing with the dating world.

While there are many dating apps out there, Whitney Wolfe designed Bumble to be unique from the rest. When it comes to initiating conversation in most dating apps, it’s generally the men doing it. This leaves the women users in a rather uncomfortable position many times. With Bumble, only women can make the first moves when it comes to trying to find romance online. For updates connect with Whitney Wolfe on Twitter.

Currently, Whitney Wolfe is proud to say that Bumble has more than 40 million users around the world and this number is expected to grow as plans are made to introduce the app to India. Online dating in India has been around for a long time, but never in the way that Bumble provides. Bumble is currently working with Priyanka Chopra, a popular Indian philanthropist and actress, to develop the app in a way that meets the needs of women in the target audience.

As an Indian woman, Chopra knows the issues that many women face in the dating world. The number of male users on dating apps tend to far outweigh women which causes women to be inundated with sometimes aggressive messages and requests. Chief executive officer Whitney Wolfe is looking forward to what Chopra will be able to bring to the company as an advisor and investor to the project that is expected to be released in the near future.

Bumble and Chopra have been working together on this project for the last 9 months or so. Along with their expansion into India, Bumble is also preparing to bring it’s initial public offering to the market and are hard at work making preparations. Whitney Wolfe and Bumble have had a tremendous 2018 and 2019 looks just as great.

Jeffrey Aronin Provides Cure for Desiree Lyon’s Rare Condition

Desiree Lyon has been hospitalized for a large part of her life. When the rare disease stays untreated, she gets on a roller coaster ride that leads into an abyss of deep pain to the point that she almost dies. Porphyria is an unpredictable disease that is associated with abdominal pain which feels like flame throws that are directed at you non-stop. The disease is draining, and Desiree’s life has been with more than 100 attacks of these kinds of nature. She has had thirty intensive care stays, and she has experienced 2 total paralyzes that have been followed by months of recovery. (chronicleweek)

 

Lyon has stated that the disease does not even make sense to doctors because, at one point, Lyon experienced complete recovery and then in a week’s time, she was in deep pain as if nothing had been done before.

 

Lyon began exhibiting signs of Porphyria when she was 18. The medical condition is a group of 8 inherited disorders that form a chemical buildup in the body. The most common porphyria symptom is fragile skin that can form blisters in direct sunlight. Organs of the body such as the liver can also be damaged by the abnormal levels of the natural body chemicals. However, the Porphyria that Lyon was diagnosed with is known for extreme abdominal pain, and it can attack the CNS to the point of paralysis, coma, and seizures on all the 4 limbs.

 

Lyon went undiagnosed for 10 years, and most doctors had never seen a patient with her symptoms. The condition has no way to screen it as it has to be suspected and taken through tests uniquely. There are various medications that doctors tried out with Lyon not realizing that they were bad drugs. Put aside the indescribable pain and poor prognosis, one of the worst moments that Lyon has gone through was when she was diagnosed to be hypochondriac.

 

Lyon, later on, found a new drug that provided her with relief, and she became a crusader for Porphyria patients. This relief is thanks to a doctor who she credits for helping patients like her to experience life in a way she had never experienced before.

Hussain Sajwani and How He Runs DAMAC Properties

Hussain Sajwani has recently been ranked among the 100 most influential Arabs worldwide. This can be attributed to the great success he has experienced in terms of career. In the year 1981, he started his career at Abu Dhabi Gas Industries (finance department). He then founded the company that is currently Global Logistics Services. It started as a catering service for the U.S. military. In the year 2002, he pioneered a company in real estate, DAMAC Properties. It has consistently grown over the years and was recently (2015) listed on the Dubai Financial Market. He currently holds a position as the founder, chairman, and CEO of the DAMAC Properties.

The DAMAC owner, deals with an extensive assortment of buildings and projects. There are residential as well as recreational facilities that he has foreseen construction of. For instance, the Tiger Woods Golf Club owned by Donald Trump, luxury villas (Versace) and the Paramount Hotels and Resorts.

One of the most notable connections and networks that he has created during his career is that with the president of USA, Donald Trump. It all springs up initially from the fact that the two have invested in real estate. However, their relationship extends to even a personal level. They constantly have social interactions, such as lunches and dinners together. It is also very evident, from his comments, that Ivanka Trump (Donald Trump’s daughter) and his wife are friends and even constantly communicate with each other. His vast knowledge of the way the Trump business empire is being run, especially being handed over to the younger generation (his children) shows how involved he is in their dealings.

According to celebfamily.com, The DAMAC Properties has its success mostly attributed to the networks created by the CEO, right from the initial years when he worked for the US government (catering services). This networking has aided the development of the company. Initially, during the inception of the DAMAC Properties, his objectives were to reach out to the middle-class customers in real estate. However, during actualization, this was not the case. They ended up having construction projects of very high class and standards, which were aggressively marketed. These have survived consequent economic blows and depressions, virtue of the discipline they reflect in terms of costs and expenses.

Tony Petrello Shows How Even Tough Businessmen Have Hearts Of Gold

Oil magnates are sometimes viewed as greedy and aggressive business deal makers, but if you did get to know their personal life and saw the philanthropy some are involved in, you might change your mind quickly about them.

Such is the case with Tony Petrello, the chairman of one of the world’s largest oil drilling companies who even once took the title one year for America’s highest-paid boss. The Texas Children’s Hospital has been honored to have the support of Petrello because thanks to his millions in charity to their facility, chronically ill children have been able to receive quality care and some may one day have a cure for diseases that were formerly untreatable like cerebral palsy.

Tony Petrello himself has a daughter named Carena who has cerebral palsy caused by a seizure she had at birth known as periventricular leukomalacia. He considers the hours and days he spent struggling with the news that she would never have a normal life to be the lowest point of his life. While it was a personal struggle for a while for Petrello, he came across some friends in Dan and Jan Duncan, two entrepreneurs who had dedicated their own wealth to helping young children at TCH. In talking with the Duncans and telling them Carena’s story, Petrello discussed with them how he could make a difference by giving to the hospital and helping their neurological research department there. More and more research into the causes and effects of cerebral palsy and other issues triggered in the brain can now get underway thanks to a $7 million check Petrello wrote to TCH, and he also is on their Board of Trustees.

Tony Petrello has been CEO of Nabors Industries since 2011 and two big acquisitions he led the company through were Tesco Corporation and a Saudi Aramco venture. He came to Nabors Industries as their chief operating officer back in 1991 but took over his current role when former Nabors Industries chairman Eugene Isenberg passed away. Petrello holds a JD from Harvard University’s law school, and he practiced finance law with specialties in tax compliance, audits, underwriting, divestitures and other major transactions at a New York City firm. Prior to that he grew up in Newark, NJ and attended Yale University where he received his bachelor’s and master’s in advanced math. Other side facts about Petrello include studying under mathematician Serge Lange, and being married to former soap opera star Cynthia Carrafa.
