I just graduated from school in OH, and I’m sure you’ll get in to almost any of those – depending on your scores of course. Honestly though, retakes of standardized tests usually results in lower scores. Maybe retake it once more if you’re really unsatisfied, but only after reviewing basic strategy techniques from books, online, etc. There are some really simple tips that can boost your score a couple points. For instance, many times, the longest answer on a reading comp problem is the correct one.

In the past five years, more than $ 3 billion of international capital have been invested into the U.S. economy through EB-5 regional center program, creating tens of thousands jobs in a variety of industries. The 2012 Dealmakers Conference aims to help domestic companies grasp the opportunity for foreign capital funding in order to create more American jobs and promote recovery in the U.S. economy. Top-tier EB-5 experts and service providers will be available at the conference for presentations and networking and ready to strike deals with clients.

More guest speakers will soon be announced.

“I am glad a delegation of 50 Chinese senior business executives is coming to join us and learn what EB-5 is all about!” says Brian Su, CEO of Artisan Business Group, Inc. The 2nd annual Dealmakers Conference will bring international EB-5 investment professionals, as well as those inexperienced with the EB-5 program, a great opportunity to learn more about foreign investment and network with field experts. Those attending will get the chance to make connections and develop strong relationships with some of China’s top EB-5 emigration agents.

Q&A: What political party am I?

Question by MZ: What political party am I?
I recently became interested in American politics since I am growing up, and looking to maybe transfer into political science. Since I am knew at this I do not know what I am, can you categorize me so that I know what political party I am?

Economics: I do not believe in trickle down theory, I oppose it. 2% should not be in charge of 98%. The money then stays at the top and barely trickles. So the wealth should be spread. And bonuses for high wages should at most equal to half of the persons salary, no more $ 25 million bonuses.

Government: I believe in lots of rules and regulations, with very clear guideline. The taxes on the wealthy should be heavy, and for god sake, so should the major corporations.

Education: We should be giving schools more money, not cutting the teaching force! Previous generations have screwed the up and coming, there is no reason they should have less opportunity then anyone else.

Religion: I am a devout Catholic, but lets be real here… complete separation of church and state! There should be no politician out there that believes in creationism, for lack of a better term, thats absolutely ludicrous.

Environment: America should go green, and really make a better initiative to. Costa Rica is 100% fuel independent, there is no reason we cannot get a high number of independence. We need to back away from these mass murdering dictatorships who have oil. If Saudi Arabia had an uprising, we would be there killing them off in a matter of seconds. We need to up our domestic drilling, especially where we have oil like in Alaska.

Abortion: Please ladies abort away, clumps of cells are not human, i scratch them off my skin every day. Teen pregnancy is on the rise because girls are keeping these bastard children. This only leads to poverty and more and more working class workers rather then people looking to achieve something. And with the school situation who would even want to bring a child into a low income area.

More economics: Let me embellish on spreading the wealth. Lets raise minimum wage to $ 10 an hour, and build our working class up so that we don’t outsource. Outsourcing should be taxed like crazy, because as of right now companies are not taxed on products in different countries, lets tax them no matter where they make their money. How about this, for every 1 outsourced factory, they need to build 4 American ones. We give away jobs to immigrants meanwhile our unemployment is through the roof, although we are rebounding.

Please let me know what this falls into, I would greatly appreciate it! =]

Why are so many developing nations, and less Developed nations?

Question by : Why are so many developing nations, and less Developed nations?
Why are so many developing nations, and less Developed nations?
If you look at the world map, you wil see that only usa, Canada, Japan western Europe are regarderd as Developed Nations, that really disturbs me, there are a lot of black Africans, and middle easterns who are smart,what is the reason according to you? In Europe there are many miggrants from North africa, Turkey, Pakistan…..
Many indigenous Europeans under estimate the foreigners in their countries and that really disturbs me

Best answer:

Answer by JBS
I believe it has to do with the government. If they are controlling dictatorships and do not allow the free market and capitalism to thrive they are limiting the economy of their nation. Many rulers are empowered to line their own pockets and don’t give a damn about their nation. It has nothing to do with being educated – it has to do with the control of their government and how they control the population. Socialism – Dictatorships – Communism has not worked in building a developed nation.

rapports with italy – trade with italy.

if you do come to USA, make sure you show ONLY your US passport at customs and immigration.

One other thing – I have recently read some horror stories of italians coming to USA. Just be careful what you say and how you say it.

Alex Jones Show for Sunday, February 12, 2012 (Full)

On this Live Sunday edition, Alex is joined by author and top researcher on the UN’s Agenda 21, Rosa Koire, a veritable expert on the creeping takeover of cities and states under the paralyzing guise of the buzzword “sustainability.” Koire’s book, BEHIND THE GREEN MASK: UN Agenda 21, not only deconstructs the agenda’s aims with solid facts, but is designed for use as a study guide and starting point for developing a strategy to defeat its effects in your area. Rosa Korie is Executive Director of the Post Sustainability Institute, where she studies the impacts of Agenda 21/Sustainable Development on liberty, and also runs the website Democrats Against UN Agenda 21. In the news, Alex tackles the tragic early death of singer Whitney Houston, and exposes the reality that prescription drugs are posing a greater danger to society than illegals drugs and many other public ills. Also, plans to release GMO mosquitoes in Florida to combat native populations mark a new beginning of actively releasing dangerously under-tested new species into the wild– with possible ramifications and consequences unknown. On the geo-political front, calls for the United Nations to put peacekeepers on the ground in Syria further escalate the possibilities for regional war, while Ron Paul supporters have cried foul over the Maine caucuses, where “official” results in the delegate-driven straw polls appeared to present Mitt Romney with a narrow win over Dr. Paul. www.infowars.com prisonplanet.tv

blogs.mccombs.utexas.edu We are at a strategic inflection point, a time in the life of a business (or country) when its fundamentals are about to change, says John Doggett, senior lecturer in management at McCombs School of Business, The University of Texas at Austin. Goldmans BRIC predictions were based on population growth, the rule of small to large numbers, which was previously ignored. As of March 2010, 42 percent of the worlds population are in BRIC, 22 percent of the worlds land mass and 24 percent of global gross domestic product. This is .2 trillion larger than Americas GDP. By 2035, Goldman Sachs predicts that China will be the largest economy in the world and that India will be tied with America for second. How we react to this opportunity and our new competitors will affect the standard of living for future generations. This is the greatest possible time to be alive and be a businessperson.
