Imagine being able to communicate with staff and customers via video with no effort at all. Talk Fusion makes it possible to do just that. Bob Reina, CEO of Talk Fusion, made the choice to offer the free trial period because he knows that when customers have the chance to see what a huge impact video marketing has on their business, they always end up buying.

Bob Reina, the founder, and CEO of Talk Fusion had a dream to change the way that people communicate with each other. Though the journey to get to build Talk Fusion up to the point where they could offer a free trial wasn’t always easy, Reina stayed the course and worked closely with his friend and IT specialist, Dr. Johnathan Chen until it was realized.

Talk Fusion is offering new users the opportunity to try out everything from the original video email, to the video newsletters and live meetings all without a commitment to buy. New members will also get to experience the award winning video chat during their free trial period. The company has gone to a lot of effort to make a full line of training videos available for any new member so that they can get the most out of their free trial period as well. The best part of the trial is that it is available in 9 languages, and in 140 countries.

If there is one thing that sets Bob Reina apart from the competition, it would be his consistency and persistence toward identifying where the needs exist for real-time communications, and then creating the solutions to fill those needs. Because of his vision, Talk Fusion, it is possible to be anywhere and still be able to communicate with others via video.

If being at the front of the pack in video marketing wasn’t enough, Mr. Reina also possesses a strong sense of commitment toward philanthropy. He is always looking for ways to give back to his communities and takes pride in being able to help not only people but animals alike.

Venezuelan President Calls for Three Day Weekends to Save Energy

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has declared three-day weekends for April and May, in an attempt to slow energy use in the face of a drought that is drying up the reservoirs that are used to produce electricity. Several months of drought are wreaking havoc in the South American country, and one of the results has been a strain on the energy supply.
Maduro wants to lower the usage of electricity, so he says everyone should take Fridays off to keep the country from having to start rationing electricity. Maduro said the 60 days of three-day weekends will get the county through a rough period. He is also asking large users like shopping malls and hotels to generate their own electricity for some part of the day each day.

Heavy industries will have to cut power usage by 20 percent. The industrial areas are already down to 50 percent of normal usage. Raw materials are also scarce, which has cut down industrial usage.

Norka asked people to cooperate, from industries down to individual families. This action according to her dateas review will apply to all government related jobs, but it is not clear whether it will be required of private company jobs.

Venezuela gets most of its electricity from water power, which is being negatively impacted by the severe drought. The county has one of the world’s largest oil reserves, and lowered oil prices has had a severe impact on the economy. Many objected, including some who support the socialistic regime.

Europe’s Refugee Crisis Considered By George Soros

The refugee crisis spreading across Europe on http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-01-07/global-markets-at-the-beginning-of-a-crisis-george-soros-says is something nobody has been able to ignore as images of people in need have flooded news channels and Websites around the world. In the New York Review Of Books, the former refugee and hedge fund billionaire George Soros took aim at the problems he sees in the latest plan to address the crisis created by Germany and Turkey, a plan the Hungarian born Holocaust survivor describes as not European in nature. Alongside detailing the problems the latest deal to address the crisis has created George Soros also gave his own opinion on how the plight of refugees could be handled in a more humane way.

George Soros has also looked to use his own experiences on http://www.nybooks.com/contributors/george-soros/ as a refugee to bring the facts about democracy to those he hopes to help through his Open Society Foundations, which he formed in a bid to assist those trapped in closed societies around the world. The story of George Soros saw him held in a Nazi concentration camp during World War II before he embarked on his own journey as a refugee to complete his education and start his own hedge fund.

During the ongoing European refugee crisis George Soros has looked to use his own skills in finance to provide a distinct plan on how to handle the issue. Soros created his own hedge fund in the 1960s and saw annual growth of more than 20 percent for his fund across more than three decades; Soros now has a personal wealth of more than $25 billion based on the skills he developed as a hedge fund manager.

The European Union is being placed at risk because of both the latest plan to handle the refugee crisis and the influx of refugees onto the continent; George Soros believes it is important for the European Union to develop a consistent plan that can be put into place for a number of years. Using the extensive credit worthiness of the European Union Soros believes a loan that rates around one quarter of one percent of GDP will see many issues pushed aside. Among the issues the continent faces is the use of debt ridden Greece as a holding ground for refugees amid the poverty the nation already faces; Soros believes making a continent wide policy and basic cost of living for each refugee would limit the issues member states of the EU face.

Wikipedia Turns to Crowdsource to Add Text to Speech Capability

They are going all the way to Sweden to seek an open source solution from the speech synthesis specialists at KTH Royal Institute of Technology University in Stockholm. The lead professor on the project, Joakim Gustafson, has been giving interviews about the process and the expectations along a time line. The professor states that the open source modules for text to speech (TTS) capabilities in the English language are well developed, but that is not the case in other languages. Wikipedia’s site in Sweden, Wikimedia Sweden has already had a pilot of the new platform operating. So far they estimate that near 25%, or 125 million people each month have indicated that they need or prefer the text in spoken form. Whether it is for reasons of visual impairments or literacy issues is unclear, but what is clear is that it is making the Wikipedia site more accessible. The next step is to develop the platform for the English language Wikipedia sites, and to develop a proof of concept capability in Arabic.

One thing that isn’t new is the high traffic drawn to Wikipedia sites and their sticky nature. Part of what makes the sites so sticky is the wealth of hyperlinks contained in each of the pages. Regardless of what topic you select, reading a Wikipedia page is filled with hyperlinks to other pages offering more information, hence it has become the largest encyclopedia in the world. But what about applying these same characteristics to commercial pages? Business pages are available for both sole proprietors and businesses that can brave the waterfall of requirements Wikipedia demands from its submitted pages for publishing. Beyond the perfect English, punctuation and grammar, there is the burden of proof required to substantiate any factual information. While it would certainly be enough to make most businesses shy away from attempting such a feat, there are Wikipedia editing services that for a fee will create a Wiki page on your behalf. Get Your Wiki is just such a service.

Not only does hiring Wikipedia editors from Get Your Wiki construct the perfect page in the format and within the platform that Wikipedia demands from its submission, it also monitors the page activity on your behalf after the page has gone live. This means that your page will receive Wikipedia revisions if any inaccurate information is present and that if there is new information about your company, these writers will be sure to update a Wikipedia page with all the relevant information. And as far as going live, Get Your Wiki offers a 100% no questions asked money back guarantee if your page isn’t published.
