It was an historic and profitable day for George Soros and it became “Black Wednesday” for the United Kingdom. The day, September 17, 1992, when the British Pound Sterling lost 25 percent of its value compared against the American Dollar. While the entire economy of Britain was negatively affected by the drop in value of the Pound Sterling, the hedge fund of George Soros was reaping enormous profits from the transactions they were making; by betting on the decline of the Pound Sterling. In the history of investing and investors it was the day that George Soros, himself, made more than $1 billion. He and his hedge fund did invest $15 billion to be able to reap such a large return, but it remains as an investment that earned Soros, himself, a cool billion dollars in the course of one day’s trading. He, as director of his hedge fund, became a billionaire and his fund profited even more.
The machinations of the events leading up to this devaluation are detailed in a recent article in ValueWalk by the business staff, which is a shortened version of an article in Priceonomics. Read the Priceonomics article here.
Readers of these interesting and in-depth articles will more fully understand the movements of currencies and economies and how each country is connected to others. While readers may not know how to make a billion or a million from reading the story of George Soros, they will know some of the history of that investment and what led up to its becoming one of history’s most profitable investments on http://www.georgesoros.com/.
George Soros has lead a fantastic but dangerous life from his early experiences during the Second World War in his native Hungary to his times in England and then to his New York City experiences in investing, beginning in the late 1950s. George soros has amassed a great fortune and set up his Open Society Foundation in 1993 dedicated to helping democratic institutions around the world. He has little to do with his hedge fund now, and prefers to travel around the world lecturing at economic summits and writing books on economics and investing. Soros is one of the few billionaires who supports liberal causes on http://topics.wsj.com/person/S/george-soros/209, and as such the conservative media and especially Fox News often takes aim at this icon of the investing world. He is a man we should respect and cherish for his involvement in world economics and the work of his foundation. A man who will be 86 in August. We need to listen to him while we can.

Recently, it was announced that GoFundMe is aiming to care for homeless animals by providing resources to animal shelters. The campaign has a goal of $5000. Ross Abelow, the attorney of New York City, is the one who announced that Go Fund Me campaign would be helping animal shelters in New York. The campaign itself was announced in the beginning of 2016, January 13th. It’s said that cold temperatures have been quite troublesome and homeless animals would be at risk when they don’t have any shelter from the cold weather, which is why this campaign was started.
As a noted New York attorney, Abelow was elected to spread and support the campaign to raise money for those animal shelters in the city. Abelow has been working mainly in the entertainment and divorce law trade. He has years of experience in these fields. Additionally, he is a partner of Abelow & Cassandro LLP, a law firm. He also specializes in commercial litigation law other than entertainment and family law. He’s an active legal blogger, and he is very active on social media.
As stated above, the purpose of this campaign is to raise money for animal shelters located in New York City. The money collected will be used to pay for vaccines, food, blankets and medical care for the distressed animals. The numbers of distressed animals have been growing steadily; many shelters are unable to take care of them because of the lack of space and funds. Moreover, the additional funds that are collected through the campaign will be used to relieve the sufferings of those vulnerable animals.
If you are an animal lover, you can help with the growing needs of animals during winter. As a matter of fact, there are many animals that have to be left out in the cold due to the lack of funds and space.
The GoFundMe Campaign is a great campaign for animal lovers and people who want to help the animals. If you are interested in supporting this amazing campaign, you can visit their website for further information. Support this campaign and save the animals!

Sanjay Shah and many other people are entrepreneurs at heart. While he has worked hard and brought success to many of the companies that he has worked for, he has eventually pursued his own dream of having his own company. When it comes to being an entrepreneur, it takes a while for many people to find what it is that they are passionate about. However, when they do find their passion, then they are able to give it their all. Of course, it is not always going to work out for the person who is pursuing what he is after. However, just taking the risk and knowing for sure if it is going to work out is enough to bring peace to the pursuer.
Sanjay Shah himself has pursed something that fulfilled him. As a result, he has ran a hedge fund that has brought him a lot of success as an investor. The name of his firm is Solo Capital. Through Solo Capital, he carries out activities such as Sports betting, consulting and proprietary trading. Through his company has gained tons of money that he manages and even uses for charities.

The medical experts could come up with a more effective treatment for the developmental condition.
Sanjay Shah has been hit with a personal tragedy in finding out that his son was diagnosed with autism. This has inspired him to take action when it comes to funding treatments so that not only his son but others could receive treatment.

He is also spreading awareness on the condition and encouraging others to get involved with the funding of the research.
