Keeping Your Online Reputation Intact

The advent of modern technology has made it harder than ever before to maintain a good reputation. The internet is a free realm where anyone can post whatever they like about a person or business. In a way this is good, because once there is negative information out there, it is possible to push it down with more of the positive. When there is bad information out there about a company, business or individual it is important for that entity to take control of their reputation online. Online reputation management is a key and very important part of maintaining a good look in the public eye.

Fortunately, there are experts who handle these situations and they can be found for hire. Online Reputation Reviews experts know how to use search engine optimization to push down the negative information by providing a glut of good information. Search engine optimization allows key words to be used in the articles and web pages of good info so that they appear first in a search. Proper positive web content that is dotted with key words in the right spot can land a web surfer on 100 pages of positive content before they find one word of negative information. Though the internet is a free market, anyone can post what they want, and the negative cannot be erased, the positive pages that can be written will flood out the negative and this information will be much more difficult to find.

Even the best companies, people, and businesses can get a bad rap due to one or two bad customers who had a negative experience. If 2 out of 100 customers are unsatisfied, don’t let their negative opinions ruin it for everyone else. Flood out their negative content with positive SEO and their negative reviews and opinions will be forgotten forever. It can cost a little bit of money to get positive SEO flowing into the search engines and have it done by a professional, but the money saved by attracting good future customers, business partners, and clientele cannot be emphasized enough.


Soros Takes The Charge In Fighting Fake News

“Fake news” has become a hot-button topic after the surprising 2016 presidential election, in which Donald Trump won. Many on the liberal side have stated that people sharing “fake news” stories on Facebook swayed the election by spreading deliberate lies that painted Hillary Clinton and other liberal causes in a negative light.

However, many conservative officials have been just as concerned, as “fake news” spread by liberal people have also painted them in a negative light.

To combat this flood of problematic posts, George Soros, the liberal billionaire and Hungarian financier, will help fund a fact-checking initiative on Facebook that will flag “fake news” and help protect people from misinformation. There are many people praising this idea, though many are worried about what it could mean for the future of Facebook.

What Is Fake News?
“Fake news” comes from stories posted online on questionable sites or those that are either making up stories or reporting rumors and conspiracy theories as true news. This is different from sites like “The Onion,” as they explicitly label themselves as a parody or satirical site. These are typically sites with a specific agenda that report stories that have no grounding in reality.

Examples of this from both sides of the political fence are “Pizzagate,” which includes allegations that Hillary Clinton and other Democrats are committing sex crimes in a pizzeria, and reports of Donald Trump saying things he didn’t say. For example, many people still share the meme of him saying that he would run for president as a Republican “as they were stupider” and easier to manipulate. He never said anything like this.

How Soros’ Initiative Can Help
George Soros’ funding will help Facebook implement a non-profit and apolitical fact checker that will automatically gauge each piece of content posted on the site. It will then let users know whether or not the stories have passed fact check. For example, stories will be checked out by both ABC, Snopes, and other groups to ensure they are real.

The Capitalist Threat

The idea is to create a positive and truthful environment on Facebook that will help stem the tide of harmful “fake news” that has spread so much wrong information. People tend to do very little research before posting a story from a preferred news site, and this may help stem that tide.

There Are Some Complaints
Some conservative commentators, particularly those of the “alt-right” movement” have claimed that Soros’ involvement with the project shows a liberal bias and they are worried that conservative content will be censored and removed in favor of liberal ideas.

George Soros has stated multiple times that it is a bipartisan effort and that conservative fact checkers will be included to help balance the fairness of the process.

Whatever the complaints, it is important that somebody do something to help eliminate the negative cycle of “fake news” that is misinforming so much of the American public. Continual denial of reality could put them in a state to be more easily manipulated or cause them to turn further away from their government and the culture around them.

Focus on the Exodus of Constitutional Ideas

The area of comparative constitutional law is fast changing according to some top legal scholars. Top scholars among them Sujit Choudhry are developing a new framework that will attempt to explain the practices that are considered cross-constitutional and influence their direction development. Their aim at this juncture seems ambitious and there are some quarters that tend to disagree with them. There are some people who do not believe that that this area of law requires a certain reorientation.






A number of debates in North America have failed to place any controversy on the use of foreign law judicially in the broad framework that brings around such debates. Currently there is no methodology that matches the standard of performing a good constitutional analysis that combines both the descriptive and normative elements. The contributors to the debate are aiming at getting a standpoint that will be the best available to bridge the gap that exists between practice and theory of the comparative constitutional law. The standpoint is comparative law, which interestingly forms the primary field for researching how the legal ideals travel in the arm of private law. The project aims at changing the framework that is existent and has frowned upon the use of the term “borrowing” for “migration”.

Madison Street Capital’s Annual Report Forecasts More Hedge Fund M&A Deals

Recently, Madison Street Capital released its annual report on hedge fund industry merger and acquisition. The report shows that the performance of the hedge funds was above the industry average. The transaction volume of the M&A was 27 percent more than that reported in 2014. AUM seeks to measures the size of transaction. According to Madison Street Capital, the increase was reported in the fourth quarter of the year. During this period, there was a stronger wave of transactions. Moreover, the company believes that the wave portended that 2016 would have the highest number and volume of M&A transactions.

According to the report released in December, the value of hedge fund assets was at its highest point. This is particularly surprising since the performance of most hedge fund strategies had been average throughout the year. This lag prompted many hedge fund managers to look for new ways to generate revenues. To this end, hedge fund investors are allocating money to alternative asset management sectors in hopes of keeping their businesses afloat.

For small hedge fund managers, the poor performance made it difficult for them to make profits. These firms are finding it harder to generate the minimal capital needed to maintain optimal portfolio levels. This situation has seen them accrue more liabilities. Operating costs have been rising despite the overwhelming pressure from clients who are demanding for lower fees.

Speaking during the release of the annual report, Madison Street Capital’s senior managing director, Karl D’Cunha, pointed out that the stronger deal environment in hedge fund industry has been improved by the availability of deal mechanisms. He added that these deals accommodate both sellers and buyers.
