Jun 22nd, 2016 by zuma

Sanjay Shah is a name known to many in the financial industry around the world after he spent a long and successful career working with some of the world’s best known companies offering financial services. Following the 2008 economic slowdown, Sanjay Shah decided he was in need of a change in lifestyle and career focus, which resulted in his family making a major move from London to Dubai, and the Solo Capital financial services company being established in 2011. The changes in life for Sanjay Shah have not ended with the establishment of Solo Capital, but have continued as he has become one of the world’s best known fund raisers for autism research.

In 2014, Sanjay Shah and his family were informed that his youngest son was affected by the neurological condition autism; Shah did not take this as a sign to wind down his career or activities, but instead looked to raise funds for research into autism in any way possible. Shah now works with researchers at Cambridge University to make sure the diagnosis of this condition can be completed as early as possible. The former medical student has also looked to aid other families by promoting techniques and options for getting help and coping with the issues autism causes for people across the world.

In order to raise funds for autism research Sanjay Shah developed the Autism Rocks charity that has been staging intimate concerts for a number of years by some of the best known artists in the world. Recently, Shah has added new members to the board of Autism Rocks and has seen a change of focus away from the staging of intimate concerts to the much larger first festival the charity will stage in 2016 in Dubai. The focus on philanthropy has taken up much of the time and effort of Sanjay Shah in recent times, which has seen him spend much more time on charitable activities linked to the Autism Rocks charity.

Apr 5th, 2016 by zuma

Social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram just to name a few, have contributed significantly to networking. People have the freedom to post a comment or status update in a bid to share their views with their friends or followers. In addition, most accounts allow the sharing of pictures and videos regardless of the content.

Kim Kardashian’s Naked Selfie on Social Media

Celebrities are known for setting most trends on social media like Instagram. Actions of various celebrities on social media have raised eyebrows such as a recent nude picture of Kim Kardashian on Instagram, which she shared with her 63.8 million fans or followers. Consequently, the photo triggered a myriad of controversy from the social media community as well as other celebrities such as Miley Cyrus and Bette Midler.

However, Kim’s case is just a tip of the ice bag when it comes to posting naked pictures on social media platforms. A study conducted on 2014 revealed that 54% of young people have taken part in sending and receiving explicit content with the largest share of the statistics being girls, who are the popular senders.

Numerous debate about women exposing their bodies has emerged with Danielle Galvin argument revealing another case of society’s double standards. She claims that plus-sized women are consistently urged to cover up their bodies since such bodies are not appealing to men. On the other hand, models who are scantily dressed are regularly posted on magazines without any criticism. Therefore, the debate about Kim’s nude picture does not hold major ground for such criticism since society has accepted the trend of women on revealing their bodies in other mainstream media platforms. However, the question still stands about whether exposing the body is a sign of female empowerment and freedom or a sign of wicked pressure by society. The original information can be read on ELLE

Rising Taxes Issue For Business And Investors
Dec 1st, 2015 by zuma

The Chicago council has created a new law that will allow the city to reassess the tax situation on all businesses in each of its districts once every three years. Before this, the tax reassessment was sporadic and could happen at nearly any time as a result of questioning from the area and also as a result of rising revenues in each of the areas. This new law is something that has increased the taxes and has proven to be somewhat detrimental to the people and the businesses in each of the areas that have seen the taxes rise in the past year.

Investors are also on edge about the increase in taxes. One of Chicago’s biggest grocery investors, Majeed Ekbal, has seen the increase and is anxious about what it will do for the businesses he has invested in. Many of the grocery chains he has invested in are growing exponentially due to to social media, and the taxes are constantly rising with the rise in revenue.

North Township 013 is one of the districts that has been the hardest with the increase in taxes. This is an area that is part of Chicago and has a lot of grocery chains within the area. It is a progressive area that has allowed investors to take part in growing businesses and industries, such as the delivery grocery services. These services may take a direct hit from the rising taxes in the area and may not be able to survive if the taxes continue to increase each year as it has been predicted they will.

When investors like Majeed Ekbal take on a property or investment opportunity, they do so knowing that there will be risk involved. Most of the time, they can assess the risk that is involved and make the decision whether the opportunity will be worth the possible risky outcome. With the rising taxes that are happening in the area, the risk assessment process may be more difficult and the investors may not see the benefits that come with the possible risk of taking on new and progressive business opportunities in Chicago’s areas.
