The Top Video Chat App in the World: Talk Fusion

What does it take to become the number one video app in the world? A lot of innovation. In places like Indonesia, Talk Fusion is the most used video chat app on the Android App store. In places like Japan and Switzerland, it is also very popular. The reason is that it provides easy video chat services, among other things. With Talk Fusion, you can send videos in emails, create newsletters, conduct live video meetings, and more.

With the email part, for example, you can select from hundreds of top quality templates to send an email to one or many people. This is all done from one central app. No worrying about switching back and forth between many applications. You simply upload the video from any smart device, such as a tablet, smartphone, or computer. The brand can be Apple, Android, or Windows. Then, you load the video into the email that you want to send. You’re ready to send after that.

In addition to being easy to use and multi-functioned, Talk Fusion is also more affordable than other apps. This is due to their Direct Selling Association membership, which means they sell directly to friends and family through their associates who are all around the globe (over 140 countries). They adhere to the highest ethical standards when selling as well.

The reason that Talk Fusion is so ethical and useful for customers is because of the founder: Brad Reina. He started the company in 2007 by scratching his own itch. He was annoyed that it was impossible to easily send a short video clip to his friend via email without linking to an outside source. He wanted to embed it. AOL, his email service at the time, said that it could not be done. Reina is a former police officer and knew that he could solve the problem, so he got the help of his IT partner and started innovating.

Highland Capital Management Is Investing Billions In Argentina, According To President James Dondero

Now that the UN has declared that the Falkland Islands sit in Argentinian waters, and the country has elected a pro-democratic president, investors like Jim Dondero are excited about a possible economic turnaround. James Dondero has been watching Argentina go through some pretty dramatic economic times over the last 20 years. When Dondero was involved with American Express, he watched Argentina sink well below its potential because of government mismanagement. Dondero continued to watch the country when he opened Highland Capital management in 1992, but there were too many other countries that offered better investment returns then.

Things got worse when Christina Fernandez Kitchener took office fourteen years ago. Before she was elected Argentina defaulted on $82 billion worth of debt, and she did very little to rectify the situation with the hedge funds that bought the debt. Dondero was happy he stayed away when he heard about the lawsuit brought against Argentina by those investors, and the other defaults that would keep Argentina on the “Do Not Invest List.” But Dondero told Bloomberg.com recently that he still believed that Argentina had potential, but it was hidden under poor government management.

In 2014, Highland Capital decided to invest in Argentina’s debt. Highland Capital needed to recoup some of the losses the company was experiencing due to energy sector investments. The 8 percent yield that Argentinian bonds offered was enticing, so Dondero decided to allocate a large part of the company’s Global Allocation Fund to Argentina bonds. That decision turned out to be a good, according to Dondero.

Now that Mauricio Macri is president things are changing in Argentina. Maci has reorganized the central bank and the country’s finance ministry. He made an agreement with the old bondholders, and those hedge funds agreed to accept reissued bonds. Macri is also offering an additional $12 billion in debt related bonds to other foreign and local investors. Jim Dondero told Bloomberg.com that Highland Capital’s Global Fund will invest in those new bonds.

Argentina is not out of their problematic economic times yet. But the country is getting support from investors and potential customers around the globe. Even the Chinese are offering Argentina a trade package now that Macri is calling the shots. Dondero thinks Highland Capital investors will benefit from the risk of dancing the economic tango with Argentina, but other investors are still siting this dance out, according to the Bloomberg.com article.

High Tech Food Delivery Apps Struggling To Breakthrough In India

 

India has had hundreds of food delivery applications spring up during the past few years. Some of them have been extremely well funded and had leading businessmen and marketers at the helm. Despite having access to a large amount of capital and spending a great amount of money and effort on advertising to try and win over customers, most new food delivery apps and companies have floundered in India.

Why have hundreds of food delivery applications and companies have gone bankrupt in India after getting large investments from venture capitalists? According to Marc Sparks, the answer lies in the fact that most of the new startups are unprepared for the ground game, or getting deliveries to hungry customers. Hundreds of thousands of meals are delivered each day by by bike riding, train riding and cart pushing delivery main called Dabbawalas. Though they may lack the technology that new startups have, they have experience and know what it takes to get the food delivered to customers on time.

Most of the new companies that have failed have been unable to create a cost effective delivery solution. Others have spent too much too quickly on advertising and expansion, and have seen all their capital dry out, leaving them bankrupt. The few companies that have been successful have used the Dabbawalas effectively, while integrating some aspects of modern technology. For food delivery companies to be successful in India they must use whatever works and slowly win over customers that Dabbawalas have served for well over a hundred years now.

Music for Autism Awareness

Autism Rocks is organizing a major event in Dubai in April this year. In order to mark the Autism Awareness Month, the association is planning a family day. The range of activities planned for the day include golf, petting zoos, face painting and camel rides. To top it all, there will be performances by two international rappers. The good news is that to enjoy all this, you only need to pay a small price.

 

Autism is a condition which affects someone’s ability to develop social relationships. It also affects their communication skills. Autism has been known for being a lifelong disability that makes the person develop unusually narrow yet strong interests. It is also characterized by repetitive behavior. People suffering from autism can lead a relatively normal and independent life but some may need specialist care and support.

 

When talking about autism, one cannot ignore the fact that there needs to be awareness around the area. There are many people suffering from autism and they are treated differently. This is the main reason why there are initiatives such as Autism Rocks to create awareness and encourage research in the area. It is with this in mind that Sanjay Shah decided to start an association called Autism Rocks.

 

Sanjay Shah, a British born philanthropist, has keen interest and passion for music. His son, whom he loves dearly, was diagnosed with autism when he was four years old. This is what inspired him to come up with the association. He began by organizing a music event and inviting performers. The performance was held in London. So far, Sanjay Shah has invited Drake, Prince and even Lenny Kravitz.

 

This year, Sanjay has decided to take Autism Rocks to Dubai. On his performance list is Tyga and Flo-rida. The two rappers are not new to the Dubai scene. In fact, they have performed there before. The event will be held at the Autism Rocks Arena at the Dubai Outlet Mall. It is organized by 117 Live, the team which is organizing Nicki MInaj’s performance in March. The tickets are going for 50 AED and there are many activities planned for everyone. Check out this YouTube video of Sanjay to get a better feel for what he’s all about.

Jon Urbana’s Blog Never Ceases to Be Great for Photo Art

Jon Urbana’s blog is a lot different than most blogs. Lengthy prose is not found on the blog, and the entries are much more visual in nature. Jon Urbana, a former professional lacrosse player who founded a yearly summer camp called Next Level Lacrosse, where Urbana coaches and mentors high school athletes, does enjoy the arts. Photo arts appears to be his favorite. Urbana’s variety of tweets reflects this love for all things visual.

Urbana is also one of the most active members of the Denver charity scene. Jon supports entities like Earth Force and ARAS. Read more on FoxCarolina.com about his work with ARAS.

Ripe Red Cherries on a Black Wooden Background” is a title that tells all thanks to its descriptive nature. The actual artistry of the photo has to be viewed to be fully appreciated. The way the cherries appear in the foreground is mesmerizing. The contrast between the bright red cherries and other items in the frame is stunning. This image reflects some of the best work on Jon Urbana’s blog.

Cocoa in Cup” is a lot simpler in design, but no less artistically brilliant. Anyone who checks out this particular image may not only be impressed by the artistry, the person might end up being motivated to pick up some cocoa on the next trip to a store.

Jon’s photography videos are commonly posted on the blog. The videos usually have a nice mix of music and visual splendor. Promotional videos are not usually presented on the blog, but “Nike by Spacetime” is not so much promotional as it is artistically relevant. The music on the short video is accompanied by a collage of images on Jon’s About.me that truly capture the pop cultural brilliance of the Nike brand. Despite the short running time, Urbana’s Tumblr posts can have a great impact on the viewer.

Urbana is an esteemed airplane pilot and recently got written up in the Aviation Business Gazette (FAA Recognizes Jon Urbana). You can see footage of him in flight at www.jonurbana.com.

Coffee” is not an image designed to promote the actual coffee as much as the cups and other items in which the coffee is served. The cups and pots appear to be made of brass, and they are impressive. The dark, lack of lighting in the photo does bring out an interesting degree of ambiance.

Sometimes, an unfinished product is worth checking out. “Ingredients and Equipment for Dough” presents wheat flour, egg, cream, and more in a deliciously sloppy manner. The process of making dough can be a fun one, and the various ingredients do make for nice photo art.
