Jose Manuel Gonzalez and the Struggle in Venezuela

Jose Manuel Gonzalez is a Venezuelan politician who is speaking out against the current political and economic situation in his homeland of Venezuela. The entire country has been dependent on petroleum produced in Venezuela to fuel its economy, but with the price of oil at a 31 year low, the strain has been placed directly on the citizens of this coastal nation. Jose Manuel Gonzalez is a member of the party that is not in the position of power and is opposed to the socialist government in control. It is an age-old battle between the powers that be and the powers that wanna-be, the situation is made much worse by the near economic collapse of the country.
There is an election scheduled for December this year in Venezuela, but even a regime change will not solve the problems of an economy so dependent on petroleum. Governments around the globe are being controlled by a two party system vying for control of the government. It is seen everywhere and particularly venomous in the United States of America where Republicans seem to want to bring the country to a halt in order to stop the political agenda being proposed by the party in office, the Democrats. In this political condition there is no consensus on what is needed, there is only antagonism, distrust, and eventually hatred between the opposing factions.
Venezuela needs the price of oil to climb in world markets or face the continuing inflation and economic scarcity that has severely impacted this country for the past year.

History Will Mark Helane Morrison As a Pioneer

Helane Morrison has accomplished some law enforcement in an arena that seems to have too many crooks, too often getting away with unethical business practices: white collar investment scams.
She was instrumental in the investigation and prosecution of Bernie Madoff and other thieving investors on Wall Street in 2007. They were the unscrupulous operators that brought the whole nation’s economy down in that year.

At the time, Morrison was an agent of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), working out of her San Francisco office. She was responsible for SEC enforcement investigations in Northern California and some Northwestern states Region. She has long been an active promoter of firm ethics in the conduct of business. Some have pointed out that few women have accomplished as much as Morrison has in gaining equality for women in both the business world and in the area of government enforcement. She has genuinely shattered the so-called “glass ceiling.”

Helane Morrison left the SEC in 2007, after she realized how much more effective she could be in the private sector. She is the Chief Compliance Officer and also Managing Director at Hall Capital Partners (HCP). She has also become the company’s General Counsel. HCP is an all-woman managed business, headquartered in San Francisco, California.

Morrison spent eight years at the SEC. She was appointed to represent the SEC during their investigations of Wall Street. She answered questions from the press at briefings. She understands the journalists role, as her first career was in journalism. Then the Federal US government recruited her into the SEC. Helane is well known as a strong stand against any kind of thief.

Many businesses have benefited from Morrison’s counsel and work in cases of litigation for their companies. She worked hard at the law firm of Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin to perfect her science and craft. She had also clerked for U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Richard Posen.

Medicare Advantage Plans And InnovaCare Health

Medicare Advantage Plans are private Medicare health plans. There are several types including Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs). They provide Medicare-related services to members. These are private companies but are paid by the federal government.

All Medicare Advantage Plans include a limit on their out-of-pocket expenses for Part A and Part B. The maximum out-of-pocket amount for a HMO is $6,850. Cost-sharing that is higher than Medicare isn’t allowed; this includes co-pays or coinsurance for certain types of services including chemotherapy and dialysis. Medicare Advantage Plans cover vision or dental care, but Medicare doesn’t.

Medicare doesn’t cover everything. After emergency and urgently needed care, most Medicare Advantage Plans won’t continue covering expenses for hospice care. In fact, services that are medically unnecessary won’t be covered. To ensure that the services you need are covered, check with your provider.

There are prescription benefits available as part of the Medicare prescription drug coverage, also known as Part D and costs $104.90 a month.

Stephen Murray Showed Our Family Business A Better Path

The family business was founded by my great grandfather ages ago, and back then they did not do any kind of investing. They just did the best job they could do every year, and then it came to us to run the family business. Being so many generations down the line meant that I had to be the one that was going to make all the changes to the family business.

I figured that the only way to do this right was to make an investment, and that is why I called Stephen Murray on my own. I was really sad to find out that he was already sick, but he had a team of people that he trained who could help me.

I got to talking to them about what they thought we could do for the family business, and it made me feel really good to know that they had a plan that I thought we could follow.

We moved all our savings over to investments at CCMP Capital, and we were able to get into the investments in a lot of different areas. There was even a brand new hedge fund that had been put together by Stephen Murray CCMP Capital. He made it before he got sick, and I was sad to know that he did not get to see how helpful it was to us.

Our family business has been more prosperous than ever, and we can owe it all to what Stephen Murray and CCMP Capital have done.

They are really a nice company that has helped us to make sure that we could have a good time investing while also knowing that we were going to be able to pull cash out at all times. The whole thing works great, and we are thankful for CCMP Capital and Stephen Murray.
