A talk with Sean Penn on his interesting work: “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”

Sean Penn sat down with Vogue to discuss how he has no intention to act anymore, pushing his new book “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”. He also sat down with Trevor Noah, to discuss his book as well. Penn who has always been politically vocal, told Noah that the book is meant to look at “the dark nature of humans” and how democratic values can fall quickly to fascist tendencies. The story tells of Bob Honey, an angry american, who feels left behind, and has a side job of killing older citizens with a mallet. Bob seems to justify these murders because these senior citizens stand in the way of “progress.”

The book may be a satire, that Noah had a hard time giving words to describe, but Bob seems to be aligned with the current events that have occurred in the U.S.. For example, Bob witnesses the U.S. election in 2016, and even writes an angry letter to the current U.S. president, who he says is unfit for the office. Penn tells Vogue that this book lies on a parallel plane to the issues of the #METOO movement. He also tells Noah that Bob is a symbol for the citizen that is compelled to serve his country, but lacks any purpose of direction. Bob seems to be lost, and still has a need. This seems to reflect Penn’s critique of fascism and democracy.

Aside from just the book, Penn talks of his reasons for writing it. He loathed Trump’s comments towards “sh*t hole countries” in which he feels there are racist undertones. He also discusses his relationship with Hugo Chavez, and its current downfall into political turmoil. He also discusses the bad outcome of the war on drugs in Mexico and how is interview with El Chapo was crucial. Penn seems to have a distaste for American’s current state, and it seems that Bob symbolizes where Penn stands on American affairs.

Dr Walden: A Review of Her Career in a Male-dominated Cosmetic Surgery Industry

In the world of medical business, the experts and professionals need to be at the top of their game. They need to either shape up or ship out. Sure, people can cut the doctors and surgeons some slack by not increasing the pressure on them, but that is the price of being in the medical field. This is the challenge that is being faced by plastic surgeons like Jennifer Walden who are always confronting the big challenges of complaints from their patients. Cosmetic surgeon might not be as hard-stakes as being a clinical surgeon, but it is still one of the most challenging and in-demand medical areas today.

The Woman Doctor from Austin

It’s already a granted that Jennifer Walden is a known and reputable plastic surgeon today, but what most don’t know is that he actually graduated from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. She has been striving since then to be able to offer the best practice that she can in the cosmetic surgery field. For eight years, Ms. Jennifer has served many clients with different cosmetic needs, such as nose jobs, face-lifts, breast augmentations and eyelid lifts. She’s also served her expertise in offering clients the rhinoplasties that they need. She has also served people with their liposuction needs, including inner thighs and arms.

The Male Domination

In the article from Texas Monthly, we hear a lot of interesting stories about the career and journey of Jennifer Walden in her cosmetic surgery practice. However, one interesting thing we learned is about her opinion on the domination of male doctors in the cosmetic surgery field. There may be a lot of operational factors why male physicians dominate the field, but according to Jennifer Walden, the fact that men dominate it right now doesn’t discourage her to prove herself day in and day out that women can do better.

She also shared that the fact that cosmetic surgery for women could mean that they could delay bearing children because it adds an extra challenge on them. Fortunately, Dr. Walden knows the importance of persistence and continues to do her best to make sure that she can still offer the best service she can to her clients.

Jorge Moll Explains the Moral Brain

Dr. Jorge Moll’s groundbreaking work at the National Institute of Health validates what many people know about helping others. Dr. Moll and his research team used complex brain technology to evaluate subjects’ responses when they engaged in charitable giving. Using fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging), he was able to pinpoint where the urge to give originates in the brain. This work supported the existence of “warm glow” giving: the experience of a warm glow when people help others. In his groundbreaking 2006 paper entitled “Human fronto–mesolimbic networks guide decisions about charitable donation,” published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, Dr. Moll interpreted this as the “joy of giving.” An increase in the levels of dopamine, the pleasure transmitter, followed the action of giving. The increase occurred in areas of the brain that correlate with feelings of delight: the same parts of the brain that respond when we enjoy a favorite food or receive an unexpected gift.

Dr. Jorge Moll obtained a degree in medicine from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 1994. He completed his medical residency in Neurology at the same university in 1998 and obtained a PhD in Experimental Pathophysiology at the Medical School of São Paulo University in 2004. Dr. Jorge Moll is the founder and currently the head of the D’Or Institute of Research and Education (IDOR) in Rio de Janeiro and the head of the Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience Unit (CBNU) of the Institute. Dr. Moll has published extensively, with more than one hundred thirty-five books, book chapters and scholarly articles to his credit. He is fluent in English and Portuguese.

Dr. Jorge Moll has shown that there are multiple brain mechanisms that select for moral behavior over selfish behavior. Looking into the future, Dr. Moll predicts far-reaching impact of his research on psychiatric disorders such as anti-social personality disorder and depression, where the individual sometimes has difficulty behaving in an altruistic manner. Understanding the brain is the key to understanding ourselves.

 

Market America Believes In UFOs

Market America, founded in 1992, is changing the way we shop and as a result, they are building our economy’s future. Market America has a simple mission. They want to give entrepreneurs a platform in which they can find success and at the same time, give consumers from around the world the best shopping experience possible. How do they plan to complete these tasks? The answer is technology and people power.

The entrepreneurs associated with Market America are called Unfranchised Owners or UFOs. The UFO uses what is referred to as one to one marketing to make a sale. Most contacts are made through social media platforms. It is up to the UFO to make relationships with consumers. These relationships are directly responsible for enabling a UFO to grow their business.

Today we shop more than ever with our eyes and this is what Market America banks on. We see celebrities wearing a new outfit on Instagram and we all have to have it. We watch a mop demonstration on Facebook and we need to purchase that mop because ours does not clean that well. One to one marketing takes this a step further when we form a relationship with someone who takes the time to get to know us. They understand the products that we need or desire.

Market America does have their own website called SHOP.com. The website is considered one of the largest global online retailers. Their site has over 35 million different products and services available to consumers. The products range from exclusive brands to products from top retailers based around the world.

Their success is based on social media shopping and one to one marketing. Not only are they changing the way we shop, but they are changing the way we earn our money. UFOs, themselves, have earned over 2 billion dollars in commissions and retail profits. That is something worth believing in.

Shervin Pishevar Sees the US Behind the Eight-ball

After graduating from the University of California, where he majored in molecular cellular biology, Shervin Pishevar embarked on an entrepreneurial journey which has earned him a number of accolades and awards. Today, he is the co-founder of Sherpa Capital, as well as Virgin Hyperloop One, and has a number of formidable companies as a part of his portfolio, including Dollar Shave Club, Tumblr, Warby Parker, Rap Genius, and Uber. Because of his expertise regarding investing and entrepreneurship, Shervin Pishevar often takes to social media to share his perspective regarding upcoming events, generally to a very substantial audience. He recently took to his Twitter account in order to discuss a number of issues pertaining to globalism, entrepreneurship, and the future of our monetary systems.

The stock market has garnered support from a myriad of prominent figures in the wake of its success throughout 2017, but as the new year has gotten underway, many of those gains have been reversed, and if Shervin Pishevar is correct, more are sure to follow. Inflation, credit account deficits, corporate tax cuts, and rising interest rates have all signaled talk of a market reversal, but despite this, and to the chagrin of many of his detractors, President of the United States, Donald Trump, has continued to campaign for the stock market. During the tweetstorm, which lasted for 24 hours, in which 50 tweets were posted, Mr. Pishevar disclosed his belief that the stock market will fall by thousands of points in the very near future. Immediately following his projections for the stock market, it proceeded to lose 1000 points, inciting panic throughout all of the markets.

Shervin Pishevar also discussed the condition of the infrastructure of the United States, citing its decrepit state, which has gone unaddressed for a number of years due to a government that is stuck in short-term thinking. While the United States has, for many years, been the epitome of modern innovation, the American infrastructure, when compared to direct competitors such as China, is sorely lacking. These zones of competition continue to excel in areas that the United States has failed to address, putting the country squarely behind the eightball.

Stansberry Research: The U.S. Inches Closer to War

In the Stansberry Research Center’s article called “The U.S. Inches Closer to War” Justin Brill of the Stansberry Digest discusses the changing world stock markets and the possible effects of a growing world trade war. He first begins by describing the changing Japanese market, mentioning how the Bank of Japan has discussed ending the bank’s massive stimulus plan; this would be a first time in history for this to happen. Brill says that this could exemplify a slowing boom in Japanese stocks, in which they are running out of steam. However, he argues it is not crucial to pull out yet, as these stocks are one of his favorite options. However, the world market could be changing since president trump’s creation of tariffs on steel and aluminum which could begin a new trade war. They argue that the plan is unlikely to work, as less than 0.1% of the U.S. population actually works in Iron and Steel. Evidently, this will not help workers and instead will just raise costs for companies that use iron and steel. Orrin Hatch, a Republican in Utah, says “it is a tax hike the American people don’t need and can’t afford (Americasjubilee).”

Other than just hurting working Americans, it could trigger more sanctions and tariffs in other parts of the world. The E.U. has already proposed a levy of 25% on American steel and agricultural products, and the author argues it could get even worse if China is included in this U.S. trade war says Stansberry Research. The author concludes by mentioning that more uncertainty in the stock market is likely to follow, but Dr. David Eifrig will be discussing how people can benefit and use this uncertainty in their favor.

The Stansberry Research Institute is a private American publishing group that specializes in investment research, it has monthly and bi-monthly newsletters. The Newspaper has followers in over one hundred countries. It was founded in 1999 as an independent firm, and from there has grown into more of an advisory research center. Porter Stansberry is the founder of the newspaper, and before founding it was involved with editing the oldest English language newsletter: The Fleet Street Letter.
