Can you Afford a $170 Hamburger?

Motion pictures and popcorn or a shake and a hamburger are luxuries now that Venezuelans cannot afford anymore. According to Open Corporates, the stores are empty, no one is buying anything but food and necessities, even if they can afford it.
A 21-year-old man named Jose Figueroa, who makes a salary of approximately $35 a week, was waiting in line at a pharmacy with his family. They were waiting to see what was going to be deliverd because that was there only chance of getting what they needed, and they had no idea what the delivery trucks were bringing.

This family, like all of the others in the neighborhood, have been doing this once a week for as long as they can remember. There is no end in sight.

This is the option for the middle-class locals unless they buy from the black market. That is really out of the question for the common people, though, because the price is typically 100 times the normal cost.

Visitors to the country during this time will find that they cannot use a foreign credit card in all of Venezuela, so prices in foreign currency is going to be extravagant!

A sign on the street sold a hamburger at 1,700 Venezuelan bolivares or $170. This price is based on the going rate of 10 bolivares for a U.S. dollar. More information posted on

You could have the strength of a thousand men, or maybe you could have the power of immortality. All of the superpowers are interesting to imagine because your life would be entirely different.

Yeonmi’s Harrowing March To Freedom

No-one could doubt the sincerity of Yeonmi Park or the harrowing experiences she had. Details are unimportant because the truth of her story is the way she portrays it. The fact that her father died only months after finding freedom, and the price her mother paid, using her body to protect her daughter are self-evident in the telling. While it’s somewhat unclear just exactly happened during her flight to freedom, the heart of Park’s story seems undoubtedly true. Of course there are detractors from her story; there are so many that could benefit from discrediting her.

But the descriptions of passing into China, and the fear that Yeonmi would be deported are the experiences that so many people have when they try to flee from such an oppressive environment and history such as hers. Thus when she talks of ‘paying off’ the border guards, and the many other hells she suffered crossing the Gobi Desert, it’s not so important whether the details have changed or not. She is helping others all over the world seek and find freedom; something she says she had never really ‘tasted. To her freedom meant an abundance of food. Like her many members of oppressed nations feel the same.

Thus, like so many who have suffered abuse the tendency to make the story palatable to readers, Youtube viewers and listeners, can be very important. What matter that there is some variance in a story of grossly abused peoples. The important part is that members of developed countries can never sympathize, they can only empathize with the plight of subjected peoples to harsh regimes that exist in various places in the world.

So, when her interviewer on doubts the veracity of parts to her story, it doesn’t matter. No-one could ‘fake’ the sincerity and truth that is hers to tell the world. It makes you want to read her book and support her efforts to help others throughout the world obtain the freedom she so cherishes.

Qnet Meets My Standards

As a long-time vegetarian, and a person who cares about the things that lie behind products I buy, I have been searching for quite some time for a source of nutritional products. I also wanted them to be available online. I have grown tired of the conventional marketplace, with the frustrations inherent in finding what I need. I also grow tired of the endless hustle and bustle of fellow consumers and the sales pitches.

A friend of mine developed an ambition to do some direct selling of products such as those I was interested in, and informed me of the comparatively new Qnet. I write this not so much to sell their products, but to let people know that I found what I was looking for with them. Their concern about health and safety, and strict adherence to vegetarian practices, struck a chord with me. More tellingly, their community involvement and eagerness to be humble in service to humankind, has made me a loyal devotee.

Their product line includes more than nutritional products. They also meet wellness needs, sell skincare, and market fine Swiss watches and jewelry. What sets them apart, however, are their high moral standards and ideals. Everything they brand is tested. They ensure no animals are used in this testing. Their edible products are purely vegetarian, which suits me perfectly.

Qnet’s philosophy is to better yourself to better those around you. But unlike the fine words spouted by many others, they take their social responsibility seriously. They are loyal supporters of the Rashid Centers programs to advocate for and benefit special needs children. They serve international and local communities to enhance quality of life for everyone. Recently, they partnered with the Lions Club to establish a kidney dialysis unit at Shirdi Sai Hospital in Bangladore.

It is a member of the United Nations Glob al Compact (UNGC) Network, the worlds largest corporate sustainability initiative. All of this social effort trickles down into the approach I have found they use with their products. The quality is high, the materials are tested, and I always get something out of the assurance I have that their standards equate with my own. I also believe in giving back, and do all I can. I haven’s decided to buy a Swiss watch yet, but I would turn to this new, Asian based, company were I to invest in one.

How Class Dojo is Revolutionizing Education

Class Dojo is a revolutionary platform for connecting teachers, students and their parents. It allows for empowering students to showcase their best qualities and do their best work. Teachers love using Class Dojo because it allows for a proactive approach in establishing a positive environment and culture both in the classroom and the school as a whole.

The Class Dojo system encourages students to make contributions to class discussion and stay highly engaged. By using a point tracking system where students are able to see their point totals in real time, it provides a solid level of motivation for students to improve. Teachers love how easy the platform is to use. Class Dojo has an interactive app for tracking student performance that is available for smart devices. It is also accessible through the Class Dojo site.

Imagine a classroom filled with students that are each able to monitor their point totals at any given time. The teacher keeps a class list pulled up on the interactive board where students can see their points attached to their individual avatar. When a correct answer is given, or a positive contribution is made to class discussion, a positive and pleasant sound is heard. Everyone now sees that a point has been awarded and to whom. This is a great positive reinforcement of good habits that is so important for establishing the classroom culture and climate that teachers desperately need on a daily basis.

Class Dojo offers customizable and detailed reports to show each student’s strengths and areas that improvement may be possible. It is easy to follow and a wonderful method of communicating with families exactly what their child is doing to contribute to the class and the school each day. It most definitely takes the effort of every child to make a class and even an entire school achieve success. Through platforms like Class Dojo, managing these efforts becomes much easier. Giving a structured and detailed method for encouraging students and communicating with families is the goal of every school. Class Dojo has become the gold standard of platforms that work to accomplish these goals.
