Those who live in Venezuela have turned to a new low. In a report by Corporation Wiki there is a food shortage in the state, and since it has been hard to find food, residents are starting to dig through trash cans just to find items that will nourish the body. Some of the people who dig through trash cans are those who recently owned businesses. Since the government has started to limit the number of hours that public officials can work and has started to ration the electricity, expert Ms. Luque says it has been hard for business owners to make any money to provide for their families. People aren’t helping others as they want to keep everything they find to themselves. No one wants to part with even the smallest amount as it might not be replaced.
In the year 2010, Congress introduced the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. One of the key highlights of the Act is the establishment of the whistle-blower program. The creation of the program was for the sole purpose of providing incentives and employment protection to people who report any violations of federal securities laws. The Securities Exchange Commission is the recipient of these reports.
The first ever law firm to incorporate this practice was Labaton Sucharow. The firm was at the forefront in protecting and representing Securities Exchange Commission whistleblowers. The firm through its Whistleblower Representation Practice provides what they call unparalleled representation for whistleblowers. The team at Labaton Sucharow is made up of forensic accountants, financial analysts and investigators who dedicate their time and effort in defending the whistleblowers and ensuring that their rights are protected. The former Assistant Director and Assistant Chief Litigation Council in the Division of Enforcement at the Securities Exchange Commission leads this practice. The method ensures the whistleblower protection from unlawful termination from employment.
Under the Act and rules, the Securities Exchange Commission is expected to pay any whistleblower about 10-30% of the total sanctions that they collect for any enforcement actions. The practice of representing whistleblowers has been on the rise, and many law firms are diversifying their services to provide this. Some of the top whistleblowers law firms in the United States are Phillip & Cohen Partners with their lead attorney being Erika A. Kelton. http://www.secwhistlebloweradvocate.com/program/program-overview
Other law firms are Bernstein Liebhard LLP, Zuckerman Law, Latham & Watkins LLP and Katz Marshall &Banks.
Whistleblowers attorneys have learned to create solid relationships with the Securities Exchange Commission to ensure institution of enforcement actions against violators of federal laws and rules. The whistleblower program also makes it possible for the awarding of additional awards to whistleblowers. Sanctions in the monetary form that may result from an enforcement action are the basis for these awards. Employers of any whistleblowers cannot take any actions against them. Anonymous reports of securities violation are also allowed under the law, and one can do this through an attorney.
Accountants and corporate lawyers are the typical whistleblowers since they are those usually exposed to vital information about companies and businesses.

Hedge fund managers have a certain glow about them, and that glow is the reflection of the money they stash in their mirrored money vaults every year. Hedge fund managers are considered super-rich and not all of them earned that wealth the American way. The American way is working hard, staying out trouble, and being respectful toward other humans and the planet. Some hedge fund investors don’t play by those rules, and if the American people have their way, hedge fund tycoons could become extinct in the future.
But in the present, men like celebrity investor Kyle Bass are able to sit down with the news media and give their opinions about the economy, the political area, the European Union’s situation, and the Chinese financial debacle that is in the process of creating a global recession. Bass is the former Bear Stearns executive and investor that bet the sub-prime mortgage scheme was going to explode in 2008, and he made millions on that bet. Bass become a rock star, and he has stayed in the limelight for the last eight years. But not all the press about Bass has been positive. Bass has been involved in a number of shady transactions, and his image has been tarnished by those questionable deals.
But that doesn’t stop Bass from speaking about the American election. Kyle recently told Buisnessinsider.com that he believes Hillary Clinton will be the next president and that Trump has made an impact on the political system. But Trump is just not suited to be president, in his opinion. Bass also talked about China and the hard landing the Chinese are experiencing because of the enormous amount of bad debts the Chinese banks are carrying, and the fact that there is a migration out of the urban areas created by the government. Bass also said the Feds won’t raise interest rates, and the United States will only experience a mild recession.
Kyle Bass isn’t the only hedge fund manager that gives his opinions to the press. George Soros, Ken Griffin, Daniel Loeb and Renaissance Technologies founder James Simons are constantly in the news for one reason or another. But Bass seems to be the bad-boy of that group, according to an article published by Usefulstooges.com. Bass is currently trying to cash in on some of the drug companies that are being investigated for price gouging.

Sanjay Shah was recently featured in an interview with the host being Eric Dyer for a podcast. This podcast is known as Entrepreneurial Podcast Network’s Enterprise Radio. The podcast provides its listeners with business advice, motivation, inspiration, information as well as event coverage. The interview shed light on Sanjay Shah’s business background and his founding of the brokerage firm known as Solo Capital. This brokerage firm is based out of London, England. Sanjay Shah also has a number of other business spread throughout Malta, Dubai, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands and Luxembourg. Sanjay Shah started out his college years studying medicine but soon realized that this was not the career path for him. He soon switched over to a business degree in accounting. This was his passion and soon after leaving college worked for major companies like Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch and Stanley Morgan. In 2009 when the financial crisis hit Europe, Sanjay Shah was made redundant and found it difficult to find a new job. As the future seemed difficult he decided to start his own company in the very sector that he had worked in. This was the humble beginning of Solo Capital which is also known as Solo Capital UK or Solo Capital Limited. The brokerage firm focuses its attention on professional sports investments, proprietary trading as well as consulting. In January 2016, Sanjay Shah is speculated to have a net worth of 280 million dollars. He is now retired and focuses most of his attention on his charity organization Autism Rocks. This charity was founded in 2014 after his son was diagnosed with the neurological disorder. The charity raises funds for the research of the disorder as well as creating awareness. All this is done through concerts which feature prominent artists. The first concert featured the artist Prince and many more followed including Drake, Michael Bublè and Lenny Kravitz.

Beneful is one of the most popular and high selling dry dog food brands in Wal-Mart and they have been that way for over a decade now. Beneful made their way to market back in 2001 and since then the company has quickly established themselves as one of the few reliable and reputable dog food companies around. Over the past several years consumers of dog food have begun to get more and more focused on feeding their animals the best possible foods available and this, shockingly, has caused a bit of noise around the Beneful brand — eventually leading to a class action lawsuit. While the case is still technically pending we can show how misinformation and an ill informed consumer base has gotten it wrong about Beneful.
For starters, Beneful paved the way for the usage of organic and real meat products in their dog foods — something that has since become standard in the industry of ‘like owner, like pet’ products. As more and more customers are carefully looking over their pet food ingredients you will start to see some more scrutiny. Propylene glycol is one of the ingredients found in many of Beneful’s dry dog foods and it is an FDA approved, completely safe ingredient. However, many people on Facebook confuse propylene glycol with ethylene glycol, an ingredient that is commonly found in anti freeze.
Despite the public class action suit there have been numerous scientific studies done on Beneful’s products and not a single one has ever found anything wrong or unhealthy about the product. Since the class action lawsuit was first publicized more than one third of all people pressing charges have withdrawn those charges. Continued studies and publicized materials have made it very clear that there is no basis in reality for any of the presumptions. We expect to see more and more people withdraw from the case as continued evidence piles up in favor of Beneful.com and their brand of dog food.
