George Soros’ Mission of Creating Open Societies through His Philanthropic Activities

There is power in giving. The Holy scriptures state that it is more blessed to give than to receive. These words seem to augur well with the world-renowned philanthropists who have perfected the art of amassing wealth and then giving back to the less fortunate in the society. George Soros is one of the most talented givers having participated in numerous philanthropic activities.

Back in the days, George Soros was a teenage Jewish refugee who narrowly survived persecution by the Nazis. Following his humble background, the business tycoon has embarked on a humanitarian cause to support refugees from various parts of the globe and a liberal world order. Soros, who is currently estimated to be worth $25 billion, has given out more than $12 billion dollars so far to support various causes across the globe. Soros has been in the forefront in fighting for freedom of expression, accountability in governments, transparency, and societies that promote equality and justice. Soros giving has mostly focused on the oppressed in the society such as the refugees and those individuals who are most likely to face discrimination. Read more about George at The New York Times.

He has offered invaluable support to organizations representing Europe’s Roma people and other groups of individuals who are not considered part of the mainstream society such as the sex workers, drug users, and the LGBTI people. Having survived during the Nazi invasion of the Hungary that resulted in the killing of more than half a million Hungarian Jews, no one understands better what refugees undergo than Soros. Soros and his family survived persecution by faking their identity papers, concealing their backgrounds and helping other Jews to hide their identity from the Nazis.

As the war intensified in Hungary, Soros left the war-torn region for London where he began working part-time as a railway porter and a nightclub waiter to sponsor his studies at the London school of economics. Soros later moved to the United States and ventured into the world of finance and investments where a bright future awaited him. While in the United States, George launched his hedge firm, “Soros Fund Management,” a company that achieved a lot of success making him one of the most successful hedge firm managers in the history of United States.

Over the years, George amassed a fortune that earned him a slot in the list of world’s dollar billionaires. After achieving significant success, Soros then decided to give back to the society by establishing the Open Society Foundations. Open Society Foundations refers to a network of foundations supporting various causes, partners, and projects in more than hundred countries worldwide. Soros began his philanthropic work in the late 70’s when he helped victims of the apartheid regime in South Africa. Since then, he has been on the forefront in advocating for open societies through his philanthropic activities.

How Stem Cells Are Helping Emphysema Patients Live More Normal Lives

Stem cells are a type of cell the human body produces and form the basic building blocks of life. They are undifferentiated meaning that a stem cell can become almost any other cell in your body. When a cell is injured or harmed by disease, a certain set of signals go out and stem cells respond. At the site of the injury, the stem cells help repair or replace the damaged cells.

In the case of a lung disease like emphysema, a form of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the lung’s air sac are destroyed making it harder and harder to breathe. Emphysema can be the result of cigarette smoking. It can also be caused by a rare genetic disorder and by certain types of pollution. As the disease progresses, it causes holes to form in the alveolar membranes causing them to collapse. This prevents the membranes from exchanging oxygen and the person struggles to breathe.

The stem cells used in treatment from The Lung Institute are called autologous. This means they come from the patient’s own body. Aside from any ethical concerns, this also means that there is no danger of the body rejecting the cells.

To harvest the stem cells, doctors will draw some blood. In some cases, it may be necessary to harvest the stem cells from bone marrow. The stem cells are then separated from the other parts of the blood. The harvested stem cells are then injected back into the patient usually through an IV. After passing through the heart, the stem cells enter the lungs where they can begin to respond to the damage signals from the diseased alveolar. Their job then to is to rejuvenate, repair, or even replace those damaged cells.

The Lung Institute is at the forefront in delivering stem cell therapies to their patients. They operate clinics in Dallas, Scottsdale, Nashville, Tampa, and Pittsburgh. The Institute also offers several other treatment options. Each patient is evaluated to determine the treatment options with the best possible outcome.

The Lung Institute is led by Dr. Jack Coleman, Jr., MD. After graduating with his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati he completed his residency in otolaryngology at the University of Pittsburgh Eye and Ear Hospital. Dr. Coleman also obtained the rank of Commander in the US Navy reserve. He holds many professional certifications and has published several medical textbooks and authored many peer-reviewed papers.

How Securus Technologies is Keeping Streets Safer for Everyone

I used to work for our local jail, until I was transferred to the fugitives department this past year. Now my job is trying to locate fugitives before they can get into any more trouble at the expense of innocent people. This is a very rewarding job when you finally come face to face with a suspect who has been trying to hide right under your nose.


Part of the reason it can be so difficult to find these suspects is because they often have a close network of friends and family supplying them shelter, food, money, and even drugs. If this fugitive is a gang member, it gets even more challenging to catch them because their network of soldiers will do whatever it takes to keep us from getting close enough. In these cases, finding someone who will talk is near impossible.


One of the resources that I had while working in the jail was the inmate communication system. Often times, I could listen to these inmates talking on the phone about crimes they committed or were going to commit, they really were not concerned about me listening. When Securus Technologies updated that phone system, things finally changed for the better for law enforcement.


No longer could these criminals talk in code on the phone or use techniques to throw us off the trial. The software was able to identify times these inmates were discussing information related to our suspects. In the case of catching a very high-level gang member, these soldiers would rather die that talk to police. So when they feel they are talking on the phone in code, we finally catch a break they can not get around.


The new system alerted us a fugitive was not only on the move, he was going to be talking a large amount of drugs and cash with him over the border. We were able to nab him at 5am the day he was going to be leaving.
