George Soros Has A Plan To Solve The Refugee Crisis

The refugee crisis in Europe is growing more dire by the day with governments trying to figure out how to deal with the influx of people seeking asylum. Billionaire financier, George Soros, says he has a solution.
In a recent opinion piece published in MarketWatch, George Soros laid out his six-point plan for dealing with the refugee crisis.

1. Soros calls for each country in the European Union (EU) to accept one million refugees per year for the foreseeable future. He also calls on each government to supply each refugee with $16,800 per year to cover housing and health care and education costs. He states that each country can pay for this by issuing bonds to cover the costs.

2. He states that the EU must lead a global effort to supply funding to Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey as these are the countries where most of the Syrian refugees are now residing.

3. The EU has to create a single Asylum and Migration Agency and a single border guard to deal with the influx of refugees. Soros believes that many countries are acting in their own best interest and, often times, directly against he interests of neighboring countries.

4. Soros calls for “safe channels” to be created that will transport refugees from Italy and Greece to their destination countries.

5. A global standard of care must be adopted for the treatment of refugees, Soros writes.

6. The EU governments must enlist the help of the private sector. Soros believes that government alone will not solve this problem. He states that NGO’s, church groups and private businesses need to be involved.

By adopting these six points George Soros believes that the panic and human suffering currently experienced by refugees will be eliminated and they will more easily be assimilated into the EU countries.

George Soros is best known on NY Books as an international financier that caused the Bank of England to devalue its currency but currently he is the chairman and founder of the Open Society. The organization works to build vibrant democracies and to protect the rights of citizens around the globe.

Brazilian Women Are Left To Raise Microcephaly Infants On Their Own According To Doctor Sergio Cortes

The Zika virus is taking a heavy toll on Brazil and the other countries that have a Zika virus outbreak. Millions of people in Brazil have the virus and millions more don’t know they have it. The unknown factor related to Zika is spreading the virus at an unprecedented speed, and there is very little anyone can do to stop the outbreak. Brazilian Dr. Sergio Cortes has been involved in Zika virus research for the past 11 months. Dr. Cortes knows more about the symptoms and the complications than most doctors in Brazil. Dr. Cortes sat down with the online magazine R7.com and explained some of the complications that manifest once the initial symptoms disappear.

Dr. Cortes told R7.com that the number of microcephaly cases in Brazil has increased four thousand percent since the Zika virus outbreak. Microcephaly is the medical term used to describe underdeveloped brains and retarded skull growth in fetuses. More than 4,100 cases of microcephaly have been reported in the last eight months. Many of the women that give birth to microcephaly babies are left on their own in Brazil. The fathers are leaving because they don’t want ot be associated with a baby that has a small, odd shaped head and brain damage. Most of the men that are leaving these mothers live in poor neighborhoods. The men have little education and no money, according to a Dr. Cortes LinkedIn post. Many of these men have other children and they leave them with the mothers as well.

Marriages and agreed unions are breaking up because of the Zika virus, according to Dr. Cortes. But that is only one of the complications caused by the virus. On Facebook, Dr. Cortes said the autoimmune disorder known as Guillain-Barré syndrome is another concern. Cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome have also increased since the Zika virus outbreak. Dr. Sergio Cortes said Guillain-Barré syndrome is the name for the immune system attacking the nervous system. The internal attack cause temporary paralysis and breathing issues. Guillain-Barré syndrome is not fatal in most cases, but five in one hundred people could die from the disease.

There isn’t a cure for Guillain-Barré syndrome or microcephaly. Dr. Cortes sent a tweet that said even though the two diseases aren’t new, there isn’t a medical treatment that can stop the paralysis cause by Guillain-Barré syndrome or the brain damage caused by microcephaly. Medical laboratories in Brazil and France as well as other countries are working on a vaccine that can help prevent the spread of Zika, but that vaccine won’t stop fathers from leaving their children or women from having the painful duty of raising a baby that has special needs.

A Good Hair Day with WEN

Chances are, the name WEN By Chaz Dean brings to mind late-night infomercials featuring stylish ladies with even more perfect hair. Recently, Emily McClure, a Bustle contributor, decided to put the WEN line to the test. Could this line of celebrity-approved hair care products really help an ordinary girl create the luscious locks of a supermodel?

 WEN’s cleansing conditioner and hair care systems differ from other hair care products on the market. Simply put, celebrity hairstylist Chaz Dean set out to create a line of products that not only helped users achieve the beautiful hair of their dreams but was free from all harmful chemicals.  Wen helps users maintain more of their natural hair oils, leaving hair strong and more manageable. 

The cleansing conditioner, WEN’s signature product on Amazon, is a 5-in-1 product designed to replace your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler and leave-in conditioner. With one simple step, hair is healthy and beautiful. In a three week trial, WEN users reported hair that was more manageable, held color better, was shiny and healthier.

So what happened when Emily McClure gave WEN a try? As reported to Bustle, McClure used WEN’s cleansing conditioner for seven days and recorded her experience in a series of before and after photos. Almost immediately, washing with WEN made her hair feel stronger and thicker. During her week long trial, friends remarked on how shiny her hair looked. 

Overall, Wen did help Emily create her dream hair, but it was not without trial. Emily noticed her locks looking greasy the morning after a shower, though the oiliness did decrease over time. For best results, WEN also required Emily to style her hair daily. When all was said and done, she highly recommended WEN cleansing conditioner, especially for those that already blow-dry and style regularly.
