Compliance officers’ job is to make sure that the good folks at Wall Street are not just doing their job, but that they are doing it right. They must make sure that nobody is violating the law in the course of doing their business. Well, that is what they are supposed to be doing. There is no real way of knowing if the makers of the law are actually the breakers of the law. That’s why Governor Cuomo wants to have the power to prosecute these compliance officers. These officers are now very scared according to an Efinancial News article. They say that they are being unfairly singled out and held responsible for wrongdoings that are not their fault. They say that they are being fired because companies just can not fire their CEO.
Many companies have hired compliance officers after the financial crisis to make sure that everything is being done correctly and that all transactions are being done legally. JP Morgan boasted that they had hired an additional 8,000 compliance officers and Goldman Sachs has also boasted of their increase in compliance officers. These are just some of the companies that have started hiring compliance officers. However, regulators now want to make sure that these compliance officers are actually doing their job and not simply giving the go-ahead for everything that comes to their desk.

People that have been born and raised in a democratic society don’t understand what it is like to live in a country where freedom does not exist. Yeonmi Park, the North Korean woman that wrote the book, In Order to Live: A North Korean’s Girl Journey to Freedom tells the free world what agony really is. Growing up in North Korea was a jail sentence without bars. Most people that live in the restricted world of a tyrannical leader never understand the meaning of freedom. They don’t even know what the word means.
Yeonmi Park knows about freedom now. She learned what freedom is the hard way. After watching the movie Titanic in 2007, her family knew there was more to life than hard work and sacrifice. Park’s father arranged for his wife and daughters to escape from the country by way of traveling merchants. Her father didn’t know they were sex and slave traffickers. Park’s sister escaped weeks before Yeonmi did, but she never heard from her sister again.
The trip that Park describes in her book is an agonizing journey through the Gobi Desert into China. Yeonmi and her mother were sexually abused and starved along the way. In an interview with Reason.com, Park admitted that some of her story was not as accurate as it could have been. Her memory of some of the pain she endured was too hard to write about. Her memory of the abuse was tainted by the shame she carries with her.
Park’s book has made her an international celebrity. Fame always produces skepticism in some people. Some readers have questioned the story, and the North Koreans say she is a puppet of the United States. But Park’s story is real. The events she describes happened the way she remembers, and that’s okay. It is her story to tell, and she is telling it to help the world understand what life is like in North Korea.
Yeonmi is free now. Her story on The Reason has been told, but she hasn’t stopped fighting for human rights. She is a true survivor that wants to help others survive and know freedom.
YouTube has exploded since it launched in 2005, becoming a platform for a new generation of celebrities.

She draws her inspiration for her work from everyday things and people and has been interested in beauty since her time primary school. Despite her mother having no interest in beauty and fashion to teach her to ropes, she was obsessed all the same.
As a beauty guru, Wengie believes that natural beauty starts from the inside out. She begins her days with ginseng tea and soy coffee to fill up on antioxidants, as well as eating as much skin healthy foods as she can to keep her skin clear and glowing. Wengie is also an avid YouTube viewer herself, often looking to videos when she wants to find something out. Whether she is looking for professional makeup artists or everyday inspiration, it can all be found on YouTube.
Though she started it all as a way to vent and keep herself occupied, her dedicated work on YouTube has taken off and branded her as a YouTube Celebrity. YouTube stars are just like everyone else and in Wengie’s case, she takes pride in providing tips and advice and loves to get feedback from her loyal following. She is as down to earth as it comes and it shows in her videos.
Many people have heard the expression, “You only get one chance to make a first impression.” But what happens to long lasting businesses that inevitably flub the second, fourth or sixth? Be it representatives with strong beliefs or the government finding out about cut corners, eventually companies gain marks against them that can’t be erased. And yet erasing them is exactly what one man does for a living.
Darius M. Fisher is president of Status Labs, and on PR Week’s 2015 Innovation 50 roster. Status Labs is an online reputation management company that specializes in online crisis management and search optimization. Since its launch four years ago, Status Labs has attracted over 1,500 clients ranging from politicians and public figures to Fortune 500 companies. In its short four-year stretch, Status Labs increased its staff size to 30 and opened offices in Sao Paulo and New York.
Fisher attributes the company’s success to its employees’ experience as well as the market’s need for reputation protection. “As an executive or a business, what shows up in your search results affects your bottom line,” Fisher explains. “And while you can’t completely control your digital footprint, you can positively impact your online presence.” In addition to crisis management, Status Labs also offers search engine optimization; which involves focusing on making a company’s listings stand out on search engines like Google.
Despite its affiliation with executives and corporations, Fisher notes a personal and ethical element to the relationship between Status Labs and its clients. “A lot of our business is referral-based,” Fisher explains, recalling an instance where he met a client at a cocktail party. While Fisher claims they’ve turned down clients for ethical reasons, he also says it’s important that clients get the benefit of the doubt. “…there’s always two sides to the story,” Fisher claims. “Whenever we’re speaking to a client, we’re always trying to give them a second chance.” That second chance is one many are taking, giving Status Labs its own chance to build a reputation.

George Soros is a semi retired hedge fund manager, and he made his name by looking at the dark side of the market. He believes there is great opportunity to make money when the markets look their worst and he is right, at least, if you are looking at the man’s daring trading record. Once nicknamed “the man who broke the Bank of England,” Soros saw great opportunity and had the courage to strike during the British economic crisis of 1992, short selling the British currency to make $1 billion in profits.
The brilliant economic mind also correctly targeted the Greek debt crisis as a more dire situation than the collapse of 2008. And he also correctly predicted the Global Financial Collapse of 2008. And through all of this, Bloomberg’s Soros and his hedge fund management team have managed to continue making money and grow. Now he warns of a new crisis, much like the one in 2008, but this time anchored by a weak economy in China.
China’s recent economic slump has dragged a lot of the world’s currency values with it. China consumes a great amount of Australian raw materials, so now Australia’s economy is sagging. When Australia’s monetary value plummets, so does the New Zealand dollar; and so on, until it reaches almost every economy around the world.
Despite efforts to invigorate the economy by the Chinese officials, growth looks bleak. Soros just doesn’t see where the economic growth will come from, despite the pumping billions of dollars worth of Chinese Yuan into the economy and the reduction of interest rates to an all time low. He cites the worldwide trading markets as a reason for the sluggishness, comparing the current situation to the one in 2008 that nearly collapsed the world’s economic structure. And this is all coming from a man who is worth over $25 billion; a man who has made his money by correctly predicting these kinds of crisis and either taking advantage of them, or avoiding the calamity altogether.
To compound the confusion, the current refugee crisis in Europe is wreaking havoc on economies throughout the continent. When George Soros, a former refugee himself, pans back to see the big picture, it looks very bleak. And now there are measurable markers for Soros’s prediction. Volatility is surging, with the VIX and Nikkei Stock Volatility index surging by over 40%. One can only hope that counties get out ahead of this crisis before it is too late.
