Betsy DeVos, the current Secretary of Education, has made it a point to push herself harder than she ever has in her new role within President Trump’s cabinet. Contrary to popular belief she has always been a fierce and cunning political fighter, not the subordinate employee she has been portrayed to be. She comes with her own thoughts and ideas about what should be done with the education system, she is not ignorant of the needs of the country’s children. While some believe she is stepping into the political ring outmatched, she may, in fact, be a ringer when it comes to many educational issues.


The New York Times article “Betsy DeVos is Publicly Polite, but a Political Fighter”, published on their website, discusses the depth of the education leader’s experience. While in Michigan, her home state, DeVos created quite a name for herself in the political arena. Not only was she a large donor to the Republican party, but she also served as a chairwoman for the Michigan Republican Party. There she also started her advocacy campaign for school choice. She is an instrumental member of several organizations such as the Foundation for Excellence in Education, the Alliance for School Choice, the Acton Institute, and the All Children Matter PAC.


When it comes to her policies, DeVos will not roll over very quickly. In fact, she made recent headlines when she publicly disagreed with the repeal of a former mandate that would allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that they identified with. She fought hard against the nullification of this mandate and even warned those that would be most effected by it (http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2017/10/devos_family_stryker_heir_make.html). Just because she lost; however, does not mean that she is not formidable. In fact, that is quite the opposite impression that she leaves. It has been predicted that as DeVos makes connections and becomes familiar with her office, she will be able to make decisions that promote real and lasting change for the students under her charge.


One thing that people can be sure of is that DeVos will continue to have a special interest in charter schools. She believes that the school system is behind that of their international counterparts, even the charter schools, and that more attention should be paid to bringing them up to par. Not very long ago, she even visited many charter schools in Florida with the first lady and Queen Rania of Jordan. For DeVos, the future of education is up.

Reno, Nevada’s Josh Smith has been an entrepreneur for 17 years. During this time he has created many startups in various industries.

When asked in an interview what causes him to create and start companies, he replied that it is because of necessity. This means that when he sees a need and a problem, he thinks of a solution and creates a company that provides such a solution. Smith is often astonished when he looks around Reno, and elsewhere and sees the lack of opportunities and services for various needs.

Smith explains that as an entrepreneur, he is very busy. He has a lot of passions but not a lot of time to do all of them. That is why he tries to only do things that are the most productive. Not only that, but he tries to do things that serve more than one purpose so he can get more than one thing done at once.

Josh Smith is excited about technology. He is also excited about the home gardening and organic gardening trend. He is involved in that industry as an entrepreneur. He also excited about the 3D printing trend and how we can create various objects through it.

Smith’s advice for entrepreneurs:  If you want to be productive, you always have to have something that fuels your passions. You need to do something that you are excited about, something that you will do regardless of whether you have the time or money for it. This way, you will always be excited and have a meaning in life. This will help you be more productive.

Smith believes in the importance of taking into account the raw reality of a situation. You cannot delude yourself with something that is not the reality. He also believes that college will become obsolete.

Josh Smith believes that he has only been successful because of his ability to adapt to his situation. As new information comes in, and as you learn more data about your customers, you need to change your strategy according to the new situation. If you cannot adapt and you are too rigid, you will never succeed.

George Soros is one of the wealthiest people in the world, being also considered one of the smartest and most experienced investors alive today. He is quite old, and have made a fortune with his skills in investing and using the money to his advantage. However, because of his extreme amount of wealth and his role as an investor, entrepreneur and business developer, some people believe that he has vile intentions when it comes to how George Soros uses his money.

Recently, however, the fortune of George Soros just suffered a significant downfall. Many people were quite surprised to see the legendary Soros falling down through the ranks of Forbes’ Wealthiest Billionaires list.

That downfall was not an accident, but was the result of something that George Soros decided to do on purpose, acknowledging that he would lose a big chunk of his stored wealth.

George Soros donated, in October of 2017, more than $18 billion from his personal family office, the Soros Fund Management, one of the biggest funds that are present in the world. That was a considerable percentage of what George Soros had acquired through his last years of investing and developing businesses, and Twitter.com.

That big amount of money went straight to the philanthropical organizations called Open Society Foundations, which would then use the money of the investor to fund a series of noble causes and organizations that are helping people in need.

Oh, and, by the way, did you know that the Open Society Foundations were created and founded by George Soros himself?

Yes, George Soros is, monthly, supporting and funding these organizations that he created back when he was just a few billions worth in the list of billionaires. Right now, there are dozens of Open Society Foundations in the world, scattered across different territories, and each of them receiving money from the legendary investor, to then fund other initiatives and organizations with charitable purposes.

Although the wealth of the investor fell by a big margin, George Soros said that it was no big deal. According to the entrepreneur himself, the number that is portrayed in his net-worth is not relevant to his life at all. During his first years of working as an investor, he was earning his money to survive and to pay for his existence in the U.S., since he had traveled a long way from his homeland, Budapest, Hungary. Nowadays, most of his investments, which, many of them turn out to be highly successful, are to pay for the philanthropical activities that he endorses every single month. According to Soros, more than fifty percent of his wealth goes to the Open Society Foundations to keep the cycle running.

Most of the world was surprised by the action of George Soros for donating such a big chunk of his wealth to his philanthropical foundations since he had a $23 billion fortune before the event. However, the close relatives of George Soros are not surprised at all by the actions of the philanthropist, as they know that the man has a kind and gifted heart by nature, and learn more about George Soros.

Malcolm CasSelle, the Chief Executive of WAX or Worldwide Asset eXchange, recently explained about the benefits of the decentralized platform for virtual world payments. He says that WAX is an important option for people to actively participate in the marketplace of online gaming assets using the effectiveness of tokenizing in-game items. Interestingly, the new platform will significantly reduce the transaction costs, design and create a marketplace for gaming assets, and choices to fractionalize the gamer profits from the centralized exchanges.

CasSelle continues that tokenization system in the virtual payments creates a more accessible economy to the people with even chances of extension towards physical assets. While most virtual payments are failing to convince monitoring the tokens, WAX network put forward a multi-layered administering approach that helps the token holders to create regulatory oversight by themselves. The transfers of virtual assets are conducted by a set of specialists called Transfer Agents. Interestingly, the TAs have supervisory committees to ensure smooth dispersal called Guilds. Interestingly, when TAs could not complete their work accurately, it hits the Guild’s financial stake and reputation.

Therefore, Guilds take action against the TAs who could not do their duties. The Guilds who could not initiate action against underperforming TAs would not get reelected by the token holders to govern their game. This type of economic feedback loop created in WAX ensures smooth flow virtual transactions. Similarly, the new system encourages people to own a fraction of an important asset like the Aston Martin drove by James Bond in a movie. Malcolm CasSelle adds that fractionalizing physical assets open countless options and opportunities for people, including fans and collectors.


Malcolm CasSelle is known as a serial entrepreneur and technology executive. He started his career after earning post-graduation in Computer Science from Stanford University. Earlier, CasSelle completed his engineering graduation from MIT in Computer Science.

Before his WAX bid, Malcolm CasSelle led tronc, Inc. as the CEO. In the role, he took care of the digital assets and rapid growth properties. He also worked as the General Manager and Senior Vice President of Digital Media division of SeaChange Int’l. CasSelle also collaborated with MediaPass, Xfire, Groupon, and more.
