Upwork Providing Tips to Freelancers on How to Organize To-Do List

Making it big as a freelancer is not easy, but it is a trend that continues to grow with time. It is expected that over the next few years, the freelancers around the world would be around 40 percent of the total workforce globally. Upwork is one of the leading platforms online that provide freelancers with jobs. If you are looking for those high paying freelancing projects, then Upwork is the platform that would surely not disappoint you. However, if you want to be consistent with getting works on Upwork or any other similar platform for that matter, your professionalism, as well as diligence as a freelancer, would have to be top notch.

One way to achieve that is to ensure that you can maintain and follow a to-do list. It is necessary that you can develop a to-do list comprehensively as a freelancer, and Upwork gives out some tips to help freelancers stay up to date with their to-do lists. One way to make sure that you are more effective at work is to create a habit of writing all the pending works in place and organize a to-do list a night before. It helps you save a good amount of time when starting your next day and you know the works that are pending. Make sure you assign priorities as well as the deadline to all the tasks, so that you can complete all the works on time and that you know which work needs to be completed first.

A to-do list is necessary for a freelancer to help them stay in the loop of the works they have in hand. It can get hectic and chaotic at times because there can be some projects and clients that may be demanding their action. If you are not organized, the chances are that you would lose clients, reputation, and money. Moreover, it would lead to getting back feedback that would impact your future business as well. Keep re-evaluating your to-do list and make sure that you keep a lookout to ensure that you do not miss out on any particular task.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: Appealing to the President to Reverse the Pardon Granted to Joe Arpaio

Joe Arpaio recently announced his plans to run for the Senate, which was greatly opposed by Phoenix-based journalists and activists Michael and Jim.

According to them, Joe Arpaio does not deserve to be elected in the Senate, because of how he maltreated the migrants living in Maricopa County in Arizona. Serving as the county sheriff from 1992, Joe Arpaio enacted county-wide regulations that targeted people who are suspected of being undocumented and illegal immigrants.

His extreme measures in countering the rising problem of illegal immigration sparked protests all across the country, and he was accused of being a human rights violator.

Joe Arpaio was running for re-election as the county sheriff in 2016, but he failed to claim victory as his opponent had more votes than him, with the figures stating that he only got 45% of the votes. After he was stripped of his power, Joe Arpaio was plagued with hundreds of lawsuits, originating from the days when he served as the county sheriff.

In 2017, Joe Arpaio was arrested for contempt in court, and he was put behind bars. He was never threatened, stating that President Donald J. Trump will be pardoning him because they share the same belief. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were surprised after learning about the pardoning of Joe Arpaio.

They wanted to appeal to the president to reverse his decision, and according to the migrants’ rights activists, the former Maricopa County sheriff does not deserve any pardon because of how he treated the migrants living in Phoenix when he was in charge.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin believed that befriend President Donald J. Trump is one of the plans of Joe Arpaio to benefit from a Republican-dominated administration. He sensed that the man would win, and he gambled to show his loyalty to the president.

Earlier in the 2016 elections, Joe Arpaio has already campaigned for Donald J. Trump, and he was right in choosing the man as his president because the results in 2016 have shown that the Republican has won. Read more: Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund and Michael Lacey | Twitter

Despite the accusations about his infamy, many conservative and nationalist Americans see Joe Arpaio as a hero, and the president wanted to show these people that he is still loyal to them by giving him pardon.

After Joe Arpaio went out of the prison, he immediately stated that he would be running for the Senate in the 2018 United States Midterm Elections. Vice President Mike Pence endorsed him, and he is confident that he will be winning the Senatorial elections, as he has a substantial number of supporters in Arizona.

Meanwhile, Michael and Jim are now working with their fellow activists to mobilize their groups and campaign against Joe Arpaio.

They believe that once the former sheriff of the Maricopa County will be elected in the Senate, he will do everything to eliminate the migrants working in the United States, and deporting millions of people back to their home countries in the South. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin believe that it would cost the United States billions of dollars, and would cripple the national economy.

Igor Cornelsen: Good Information Is Important in Investing

Igor Cornelsen has a very keen eye for market trends that will have a big impact on the economy. This talent has led him to have a very successful career in the investment banking industry. After years of executive positions in other companies, he made the decision to start his own in 1995 where he still acts as an investment manager as well as handling his own investment portfolio.

For Igor Cornelsen, having pure data to base investment decisions and judgments on is one of the best ways to be able to have the best returns. This is why one of the main sources of information that he uses is Reuters, a completely unbiased news source that only posts information instead of opinion. Opinions, he believes, are something that young investment managers should avoid listening to in order to not be influenced by the biases of others. Instead, he thinks that they should make their decisions based on the information that they find themselves. In fact, he wishes that he would have known this when he was younger and just getting into the industry.

His career as an investment advisor was led to by being an investment banker for many years after graduating from the Federal University of Parana. While he may have wanted to be an engineer when he first started college, that changed after 2 years which led him to economics. Igor Cornelsen studies the economies of different markets, especially ones that are making improvements to their own but doing business with countries that are soon to be on the decline. One of the most successful investments he has made in his career involved predicting what actions Russia would be taking after they defaulted on their loans.

He knew that Russia would try to remedy their situation while most others did not. He bet for the future of the country’s economy and ended up coming out ahead a considerable amount. This is due to the fact that instead of letting the ideologies of himself and others affect his investment decisions, he only used pure data-driven information. To Cornelsen, Ideologies have no place in the investment world.

Stansberry Research Digest On The Fast-Approaching Trade War.

Stansberry Research LLC is a subscription based company based in Baltimore, Maryland and founded in the year 1999. Stansberry Research main aim is publishing of financial information and software updates that are mainly targeted to assist portfolio managers and individuals managing their own portfolios.

There have been several publications on financial and economic news on metals such as gold and copper as well as U.S. stocks as well as offering opinions on whether to buy or short stocks based on market forecast.

Over time, Stansberry Research has offered multiple opportunities to investors by giving profitable investment strategies that have paid off in the short run and long run as well. This has led to increase in consumers of its publications (Thedailyrecord). Stansberry Research’s affordable subscription plans have greatly contributed to its more than 350,000 subscribers in more than 100 countries currently.


The Looming Trade War

According to a recent publication by Stansberry Research, there has been surmounting pressure on the Bank of Japan’s Governor Haruhiko Kuroda to follow the lead of the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank to normalize the interest rates. This is in exact opposition to the strategy employed in an attempt to reach the targeted inflation rate of 2% by greatly cutting back on interest rates and increasing emphasis of quantitative easing strategies. The continued approach to inflation targeting using the current methods will lead to an eventual deflation; a scenario Haruhiko would like to greatly avoid.

This has not been made easier as it has become evident that the U.S. President Donald Trump announced the introduction of tariffs on steel and aluminum imports into the U.S. of 25% and 10% respectively. This is a serious issue because the steel and aluminum industry have seen an enormous shed of jobs since 1953 of 80% and an increased inclination towards outsourcing. This will therefore mean the prices of commodities such as canned food and beer will increase in order for the manufacturers to push the cost down to the consumers; that is an unnecessary tax hike to the American people.

In reciprocate; the European Union will impose a similar tariff on all U.S. consumer goods, a move that will be backed up by China pulling off a similar retaliatory tactic. Hence the looming trade war.

Jeff Schneider | Someone’s Got to Give

Charity is held in high regard. Yes, the value of charity transcends cultures, religions, socioeconomic boundaries, and the world over. People all over recognize and appreciate the social utility in helping one another. A famous Jewish proverb says, “Deeds of giving are the very foundations of the world.” Similarly, Muhammed said circa 620 CE that “A man’s true wealth is the good he does in this world.” Aristotle, widely studied philosopher born 384 BC who is known as the “first teacher”, likewise taught that, “the essence of life is to serve others and do good” and Jeff Schneider, CEO and father, seeks to reflect to do the same in his own life. The famous, American businessman and car manufacturer, Henry Ford is documented saying, “The highest use of capital is not to make more money but to make money do more for the betterment of life.” It’s apparent that humans hold charity in high regard, but how many humans are actually acting on that notion? Jeff Schneider is.

According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, “The volunteer rate declined by 0.4 percentage point to 24.9 percent for the year ending in September 2015.” Most people in the United States complete a majority of their community service in life for a high school or college requirement. After reaching the designated number of hours, people quit and go back to living their lives as they did before, but this is where Jeffry Schneider stands out in a crowd. He’s outstanding as he didn’t quit volunteering after it stopped being required of him. He integrated it into his routine and specifically continues to make time for it without having to. He volunteers his time at all kinds of charities including Austin Pets Alive!, the Gazelle Foundation, and LifeWorks.

Jeffry Schneider seeks out a variety of unconventional ways to give back and contribute to the bettering of the community. He tries to find fun and creative ways to contribute to society as a means of spiritual growth, happiness, and personal development. Mark Twain is quoted saying, “The best way to cheer yourself is to try to cheer somebody else up” which Jeff identifies with on a deep, personal level as Jeff Schneider’s mission is all about helping others. He volunteers his time at all kinds of charities including Wonders and Worries, the Gazelle Foundation, and the Cherokee Home for Children. He hopes that by doing so he improves the lives others while inspiring them to contribute to humanitarian efforts.



Recapping recode’s The RealReal recent post

Recode recently did an article on The RealReal getting investments before obtaining an IPO.

The RealReal’s CEO is Julie Wainwright

The company The RealReal has made 170 million in 7 years. It has potential to make more and is interested in investors to target a brick and mortar store which is in the works now.

Wainwright is pitching investors for a 100 million. It is speculated by recode that the new investments might be due to the new attitude in second hand high fashion luxury clothing, jewelry, art and home decor is changing to a more positive one as in the recent past. The investors might see the potential for sales in this market as something new and up and coming. The fashion industry is on both sides and retail sales are always trending and no need to rethink investing in Gucci or Louis Vuitton. But what about these companies that want to sell those brands secondhand? Those brands as stated before like the idea now because they have seen repeat customers to their home brand as well as the second hand business that are trending now as well. Wainwright does all she can to build a reputation for quality and they will collaborate with the companies to get repeat customers. Wainwright makes sure to authenticate the luxury items before they are listed on the website. Previously, it was thought that companies that sell secondhand luxury items were the enemy but that is not so evident anymore. There have been a handful of other companies who have tried to sell secondhand luxury clothing and items, but some have sold out or are no longer in business. The brand companies like to see sellers wanting more of their products and this type of purchase power allows the buyer to try the item at a lesser cost and eventually want to replace it or buy new product.”

With New Altruism Research, Jorge Moll sees Psychopaths’ Days Numbered

People have been accused of their diminishing empathy causing scientists to look for a way to manage the situation. Using brain scans and traditional biofeedback techniques, scientists have managed to increase individual’s feelings of responsiveness and affection. This can be helpful to the treatment of people with mild autism, postpartum depression or even complete psychopaths. According to Jorge Moll, the Director of the Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience Unit at IDOR in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the study of complex emotions linked up to empathy in the brain is the first one.


Study of Altruism

Though the idea is not wholly new, they are aiming at emotions that lead to altruism, making up for mistakes, and the quest to be better persons. Jorge and his team are mapping these emotions and training people in them. Jorge Moll explained that societal cohesion is tied to the “empathy box” saying just like Android, technological advances in computer science and neuroscience have made it possible.


Measured by fMRI

Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and a brain scanner, real-time brain activity could be measured when people thought about tender times. Also, people were asked to recall a moment when they felt pleased following something good that they did as well as think neural thoughts. The study showed that people voluntarily improve their brain signatures of affection and tenderness making possible to come up with new ways of endorsing pro-social emotions while minimizing antisocial behavior. With fine tuning, Jorge Moll hopes they can help people get a hold of their anger and violent emotions. The research provides resourceful insight on dealing with a condition such as antisocial personality disorder, autism, and other unwanted feelings.
