George Soros is the busiest person on the planet, according to right wing extremists. According to people who love right wing conspiracy theories, George Soros has been hard at work pulling the strings of various organizations and marches. They blame him for a lot of things. They blame him for the Women’s March and for Black Lives Matter. They blame him for the white nationalist rally in North Carolina, wildly accusing him of setting it up in order to make people think that there are more white nationalists than there really are so that more people will support the Black Lives Matter movement. The reason people hate George Soros is that he stands by his principles and continues to donate money to the causes that he sees just. Ever since George Soros decided that he will give away billions of dollars to help the world advance, people have been demonizing him for no reason at all. Many people on the right hate him, because he has been supporting various candidates on the Democratic side of the aisle. In fact, he donated twenty seven million dollars to help the effort to stop President Bush from getting reelected, because he thought that President Bush would have a detrimental effect on the country.
The truth is that people on the right hate him because of his philanthropic donations, not just his political support for Democratic candidates. George Soros has been donating money to various causes that are pro-democracy and which promote freedom in the United States and around the world. Some of these causes are opposed by people on the right, especially by right-wing extremists. He is giving more money now than ever. In fact, he just donated 18 billion dollars to the Open Society Foundations. He will donate billions more in the years to come. People on the right wing side are getting very scared. Perhaps they do not want to see our freedom to bloom. That is sad. Breitbart, an extreme right-wing news site, realizing that the Open Society Foundations are now the second largest charitable network in the world, has called the Open Society Foundations the death star.
According to the Atlantic, this characterization, that of George Soros as the ultimate boogie man, is a result of the vast political division in our country. People on both sides of the aisle regard people on the other side as suspicious, especially if they are so called Elites, in which case they start blaming those few individuals for everything that they think is going wrong. It is a terrible path to go down, because it only leads to more division in the country. It will make it harder for people to work together.
It is important for us to unite behind people like Soros who donate money to philanthropy and support them in their efforts. George, who was born in Hungary, has donated billions of dollars in his lifetime to various charitable organizations.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has steadily been making more of an impact in marketing for the last several years. Sentient AI has proven especially useful to businesses for the area of personalized merchandising. The technology uses algorithms to read and anticipate what a given customer, or demographic of customers, enjoys looking at and buying. This technology can then bring to the forefront simplified lists of products that the customer may wish to purchase, and therefore drives sales by showing consumers what they want.
The advantages of AI in personalization manifest in multiple ways. Companies often employ some form of AI to streamline their operations where it comes to the customer’s experience. A frequent use of AI is in the often-clicked “More Like This” bar. Nearly every online retailer has some form of this personalization method. Amazon, the world’s current largest e-commerce retailer, lists both personalized recommendations as well as “top” and “trending” sellers on the home page. The goal of these personalized ads is to show the consumer items similar to what they seem to like, and encourage them to purchase more by bringing up their favorite styles and trends. Many AI systems have been developed to send automated emails to customers who sign up for the service. These emails often market trending, seasonal, sales, and especially “More Like This” items that the customer has previously purchased online. Retailers such as Ebay often use emails to call to customer’s attention items that they may wish to buy. These methods are proven to be effective in leading consumers to the products that they want.
Another increasingly popular use for AI in personalized merchandising is in customer service bots. Automated customer service representatives are growing ever more intelligent, some even seeming to be sentient as they are developed to sound more and more human-like. ShopDirect, a major online retailer based in Liverpool, England, is in the process of developing an automated customer service system that uses an extraordinarily intelligent chat bot. Their work with IBM aims to develop an AI system that can understand customers’ emotions and react accordingly.
As technology grows more advanced, AI systems grow more refined and their algorithms more streamlined. It becomes ever easier for retailers to sort out which items their individual customers want. Personalized merchandizing is a big step towards bringing e-commerce into the limelight as online shopping gets easier and smarter. Visit fundacity.com to know more about Sentient.

The Brown Modeling Agency is a company that is bringing a highly niche and very specific brand of talent to the global fashion industry. The Brown Agency is headquartered in Austin, Texas and has a satellite office in Los Angeles but also has a true global reach. Their talent have been seen on walking the runways of every major fashion week as well as jet setting the world to work with every major brand in the fashion industry.
The Brown Agency is unique because of the fact that they see the incredible potential of Texas based women and men in a variety of friends. This includes not only models and actors, but talented individuals that work in media, market networking, photography, entertainment and beyond. Dallas and the Southern region of the United States has long been known for having some of the most successful actors and models and overall just beautiful men and women that come with some top talents.
The Brown Agency came to fruition in 2015 after modeling company Wilhelmina Austin’s leader Justin Brown acquired the already successful and well known Heyman Talent South agency. The acquisition was part of his specific vision to bring a Texas based agency that could truly call itself a full service agency.
The terminology “full service” is often a buzz word in the world of modeling and the agencies that represent their talent. However, a multitude of these agencies are not truly full service, but work with a wheel house of outside freelancers or other agencies, causing communication that is often not streamlined and not in the best needs of the clients these agencies serve.
With the acquisition of Heyman Talent South and the re branding of Wilhelmina Austion as The Brown Modeling Agency, Justin Brown sought to change all that. He wanted to put the incredible talent located in Texas on the global map and over the last two years the company has done just that.
Prior to the acquisition, Wilhelmina was already successful. Yet by growing their service offerings they have become the most well known and respected agencies in Texas. They are best known for providing top modeling and acting talent in a streamlined and efficient manner to their clients. They also build on these relationships by representing more niche services like photographers, designers, artists and more.
While Justin Brown still holds the position of Chief Executive Officer at the Brown Modeling Agency, he kept on the well known Michael Bonnee (formerly with the Heyman Talent South agency as its founder and leader). Bonnee now focuses his time on pushing the Brown Agency’s actors to greater heights in their careers and continuing to help them land top roles for some of the largest studios in the world.
