This beer is also amazing because it is standard to drink it while eating pudding. This makes Nutcracker Porter great for holidays, college parties, and more (WeeklyOpinion).


Perhaps people also take for granted freestyle beers that come out of Canada. The most known brewery for freestyle craft beers is Steamworks. Eli Gershkovitch is the founder of Steamworks. After hiring dozens of world-leading engineers to create steampipes that could be used to brew craft beer, Eli Gershkovitch wanted to master the art of freestyle craft beer. Every month, Eli Gershkovitch has a specific beer that is geared towards that specific month. Eli Gershkovitch does the same thing for all four seasons of the year.

Fabletics understands that their customers want transparent and honest marketing. Shoppers are no longer influenced to buy solely on gimmick advertising. This fashion-forward athletic company knows that if they can utilize the crowd’s opinion in their marketing strategies, they can increase the chances of dramatically boosting their sales. Fabletics utilizes crowd leverage to entice customers to purchase their product. The company posts real customer reviews where potential customers can access them. Today’s saavy shopper wants to know what other consumers think about the product that they are considering for purchase. It would seem that this translucent sales strategy works.


Since 2013, Fabletics has grown upwards of an astonishing 200%. This is almost unheard of in the business world. This innovative company now has revenue worth a whopping $235 million. Fabletics understands their customer’s reluctance to trust in generalized sales promises. Instead, Fabletics promotes their rave customer reviews to further describe the benefits of their finer athletic wear. This strategy is paying off dramatically. Consumers appear to be more willing to trust another peer consumer’s word on their experience with Fabletics. Like peer pressure, consumer crowd pressure is proving to be a major factor in selecting purchases. Smart businesses are incorporating customer input into their sales approach.


Kate Hudson is the face behind Fabletics. She is credited with the overwhelming success of this company’s sales. A recent “Forbe’s Magazine” piece touted Kate’s fashion journey as “Almost Famous to Fabletics.” Indeed, Kate is the ideal candidate to promote this line of women’s high-end athletic gear with extremely reasonable prices. Kate Hudson has a successful career as an actress, and her lifestyle is active. Women can believe that Ms. Hudson wears Fabletics herself, and Kate only delivers products that she fully embraces. Though she doesn’t have a business background, Kate is a natural in the fashion arena. She stays involved with every aspect of the company, and others describe her approach as “hands-on.”


TechStyle Fashion Group, the parent company of Fabletics, noted that there were limited options for women’s leisure/athletic clothing. Most of these boring gray or black garments were way overpriced, and were often of poor quality. Kate Hudson took the realm, and the rest is history. Using her celebrity background, Kate was recently seen on the Red Carpet promoting the, (pop-star sensation), Demi Lovato for Fabletics collection. Fabletics stands for women empowerment, and customers are sold on this athletic-wear line.


Consumers are loving the freedom of Fabletics’ chic athletic/leisure-wear collections. Never have women had this many choices for clothing so comfortable, ladies want to stay in them all day long. Indeed, these garments are so appealing, many women wear them to shop, lounge at home and run errands. These are not the average, and often baggy, sweats that flatter no-one. Fabletics clothing is beautiful, fits perfectly and come in an array of gorgeous colors. Ladies can feel terrific in Fabletics active-wear selections. It is truly freeing for women to wear athleisure clothing that looks spectacular, yet remains luxuriously comfortable.

No one has more influence in getting global “back seat” issues into the mainstream than George Soros and his Open Society Foundations. He has founded and developed a network of organizations, created partner relationships, and projects that assist minority causes in over 100 countries. The type of projects includes assistance to marginal groups of people that are members of the LGBTI community, sex workers, drug users, and Europe’s Roma people just to name a few. George Soros was born in Hungry in 1930 and a survivor of World War 11 including the Nazi invasion and occupation. He and his family were able to secure false papers of their identity and helped other Hungarian Jews in the same plight obtain the same. When the Communist gained control after the war, he moved to London in 1947, to study at the London School of Economics. He earned his way to pay for his education by being a railway porter and as a nightclub waiter until he relocated to the United States in 1957.

He made his fortune by entering the financial world of investments and by 1970 he opened Soros Fund Management, a hedge fund company, that made him one of the most successful investors in America’s history. While in London, George Soros studied the philosophy of Karl Popper. Soros was greatly influenced by the premise of the book Open Society and Its Enemies and the ideology that societies can only thrive when there is democratic governance of the people, freedom of expression as a basic right, and individual rights are considered in all cases of conflict. This philosophic ideology became the Open Society Foundations mission globally.In 1979, his first venture was an educational scholarship program to black South Africans under the apartheid regime.

In the 80’s he provided the Eastern Europian Block with photocopiers to reprint banned literature and texts as well as start a think tank based university.He has been a high profile supporter of same sex marriage and denounced the war on drugs.As opposed as George Soros is to the restriction of individuality that is a basic understanding of Communism governance, he has written about a new fear that addresses extreme individualism considered as Capitalism. He believes that competition may win out over cooperation once again drowning out the voice of the individual and their need to be heard. His foundations are his contribution to a level playing ground so that individual rights of representation are assured.George Soros exemplifies the win-win societal and political theories that promote a sustainable global community. He takes on issues that could lead to a peaceful world and is willing to put his money into causes that could lead to that world.

Todd Lubar’s analysis of smart home technology

The pace of the world’s movement is an indication of positive development. There have been technological inventions which can help the society in a way it has never been seen before. In a report by Geeks News, the smart home technology is a type which helps people to operate their homes using a remote. The technology has been embraced in several places in Baltimore where people can control their homes using remotes. The benefits of the smart house technology have already been seen in different places. Lubar gives an example of Todd Stabelfeldt who is an accident victim. After injuring his spinal cord, he could no longer make movements, and for this reason, he has directly benefited from the smart technology. Todd can control his garage doors, his house doors, and windows without any struggles. Smart house technology is the future of the world. There are certain challenges that Todd Lubar poses on this technology, but their effects can be countered if more sophisticated systems are sought.

The background and career life of Todd Lubar

By 1987, Todd Lubar was already done with his university studies. These years were a bit lucrative since it was easier to land a job immediately after graduation. Todd studied speech communication from the University of Syracuse. He became one of the few graduates who excelled in their studies before getting out for their job hassle.

The employment history of Lubar

After graduating in 1987, Todd Lubar landed his first job. He was employed at the Crestar Mortgage Corporation as an advisor. This is one of the positions that gave Lubar a milestone based on his exemplary performance. Todd held this position for five years before he quit for a more lucrative position. Later the same year, Todd Lubar landed another job at the Legal Financial Group as an advisor. In his new place of employment, Todd had an opportunity to talk to different clients. Through this interaction, he gained the knowledge of what the clients need and how to meet their wants. It was through this experience that the entrepreneur started his TDL Global Ventures where it could meet the needs of the clients without an employment limitation.

The name George Soros has almost become synonymous with philanthropy in the area of justice and equality around the globe. Some quarters have estimated that Soros has donated over ten billion dollars to individuals and organizations involved in human rights, civil and migrant rights. His funding has been instrumental in advocating for change in governments and societies at large. In the developing world, Soros funding has allowed civil groups to push for policy change, and promotion of social justice and equality which is was previously elusive.Through financial support from Soros, organizations have been able to advocate for mainstreaming of gender and other discriminated groups like sex workers. To an extent, this has facilitated promotion of cohesive societies in different areas in the world where peace and justice were far from the reality.

One thing about George Soros is his interest and active participation in advocacy and strengthening of organizations. In fact, he has traveled to many areas to take part in various initiatives. His presence has also been a motivation for groups and individuals to continue their push for change. This has been crucial in the emergence and sustainability of grass root organizations. Some of the groups have grown into global entities bringing change to diverse geographical and socio-political areas.George Soros’ interest in universal human rights may have stemmed from his background. Born of Jewish descent in Hungary, he witnessed various challenges experienced during the occupation by Nazi Germany. His parents changed their surname to Soros to survive the harassment by the Nazi. He migrated to England where he attended the London School of Economics.

After working as a porter and waiter in London, he moved to the United States. His dream to work in finance came to pass as he worked his way through the ranks to become a vice president and investment fund manager.By 1970, he had become an accomplished investment manager in the United States. He established the Soros Fund Management and further made a fortune from the hedge fund. He gradually began to donate funds to various individuals and entities with the aim of enhancing their quality of life and activities towards an equitable society. The funding involved scholarships for students particularly for students from South Africa which at the time was experiencing Apartheid. By the 1980s, he had become increasingly involved in facilitating a healthy exchange of ideas between European countries as well as with the West. His funding programs are mainly channeled through Open Society organization. Although he may not have personally been involved in pushing for change in some areas, George Soros through his funding is an epitome of what contribution corporates and wealthy individuals can make in advocating for a just and equitable society.

Many of the benefits that employees enjoy in the United States today are similar to what the great James Larkin fought to have put in place for workers in Ireland so many years ago. In fact, he is famously known for his saying “a fair day’s work for a fair day’s pay.”

Born in 1876 in English slums to Irish parents, Mr. Larkin did a number of manual jobs by the time he started to rise up and become a trade unionist, fighting on behalf of workers in Ireland to have fair working conditions.

Though he had not much education, he had great drive and dedication, was widely considered a socialist, and he was committed to improving working conditions for laborers.

He would eventually join the National Union of Dock Labourers (NUDL) and by 1905, he was a full-time organizer for this labor union. With a goal in mind to protect all Irish industrial workers, both skilled and unskilled, and have them belong to a union, eventually his agenda would dwarf the limitations he was experiencing at the NUDL.

In 1907,after the NUDL, upset with his propensity for striking, relocated him to Dublin. It is here where Mr. Larkin would move on to establish the Irish Transport and General Workers Union (ITGWU).

This would be a far more inclusive union than the NUDL as all industrial workers could join, not just dock workers. James Larkin could fight on behalf of all workers through the ITGWU.

At the top of his agenda was a legal eight-hour workday and pensions for workers when they reach the age of 60.

This political program of the ITGWU stated that their aim was to fight for the “land of Ireland for the people of Ireland.” By 1912, in partnership with James Connolly, the Irish Labour Party was formed.

There were strikes as the Party fought to gain rights for laborers, and the biggest of these strikes was the 1913 “Dublin Lockout,” which started because unskilled workers were treated very poorly and had very few rights during these times.

This storied strike waged on for several months and eventually James Larkin and James Connolly guided these workers to a better set of circumstances and the right to fair employment.

It has long been said the Irish are good with “the word,” and that said, James Larkin was absolutely no exception. He was a powerful orator by all accounts, and anyone who was ever in his presence when he addressed his growing crowd of laborers, felt as if they were in the presence of someone very special.

Not everyone was a fan, but this is ultimately inconsequential, and all-but-guaranteed, when one is executing a mission to make the lives of the masses better. He was very passionate about the work of the Irish Labour Party.

He never used violence against firms or strike-breakers as the goal was not to ruin business, but rather just to make sure if his workers were going to be in the employ of that business, that they would not be toiling away in awful circumstances. Learn more about Jim Larkin: and

William Butler Yeats, a fan or Mr. Larkin, wrote a poem about the Dublin Lockout, so the Irish Labour Party did enjoy its share of powerful supporters.

The most important thing, however, is he had the support of the people for whom he was fighting. Even today, workers do not like striking, but without striking and unions, workers would have never gotten any rights in the workplace.

Divide and conquer, so many years later, is the clear mantra of many corporations as they fight against the unions. James Larkin, all those years ago, joined a fight that is still in progress over 100 years later.

The concern is that workers today are blissfully, or unwittingly blissful as it were, unaware of what precipitated the rise of labor unions, yet the pendulum will likely swing, and this world will see a rise in organizing workers to gain protections in the workplace once again.

When running a business, there are a few approaches that need to be considered. Among the common approaches people take when it comes to running their business is working with short term goals. Another common approach with business is working towards long term goals. Both of these approaches are necessary in order to maintain and achieve success. However, it is important for people to make sure that they do not choose one at the expense of the other. For one thing, they each have their disadvantages. Therefore, it is important to put them together so that the success of the company will be maximized.

Among the people who keep their eyes on short term and long term success is Louis Chenevert, former CEO of United Technologies Corporation. UTC is involved in the development of high technology products. Among the products the company puts together are aircraft engines, elevators, escalators, and HVAC. For one thing, they are involved in technology that is going to make life easier for people. During his time as CEO, Chenevert prioritized the technology that UTC developed, ensuring that it not only helped people in the short term, but also provided long term benefits for people.

Chenevert also believes that it is important to look to the next generation when finding new people to work for. After all, it is the younger generation that have the greatest ability to adapt to the coming changes in the market. This is one of the reasons that UTC and Louis Chenevert is always looking to new talent. He is often looking for talents that have the same type of mindset when it comes to the work and plans of his business, regardless of which business that is.
