Enriching Lives One Dish at a Time

Everyday life is demanding, and making proper eating choices is one of the challenges that gets pushed aside in favor of greasy fast food or pre-packaged meals. This is especially true when it comes to more urban areas, whose location and distance from fresh food producers make it hard to obtain healthy and garden pure produce. This encourages the consumption of undesirable fats and harmful chemicals added to the mass produced elements of those “fast” meals.

 

Nathaniel Ru is one such individual who sought out healthy fresh food., but was unfortunately left without options. Instead of shrugging the disappoinment off and turning back to the over-processed, pre-packaged meal plan, Ru decided to make a change. Nathaniel and his cohorts found the perfect location, and after a massive amount of tenacity and determination, were able to secure the backing and support necessary to create Sweetgreens. The creators of this cornerstone restaurant wanted to be more then just an eatery, they sought to share a deeper purpose. Sweetgreens and Ru desired to be a lifestyle brand that promoted physical health and a real life approach to food.

 

Sweetgreens also takes a different stance in the marketing and development department than many other businesses. They offer yoga classes, cross promotions with other fitness communities, live music, and speakers. Ru and his partners strive to make Sweetgreens a unique experience for their customers at each and every location. The business personalized marketing plan and special outlook on food make this farm to table restaurant a truly noteworthy experience.

 

Nathaniel Ru is a graduate, with a degree in Finance, from Georgetown University. His forethought, tenacity, and passion, as well as that of his business partners and friends, has worked to ensure the success and integrity of this company. These characteristics also attributed to the creation of a massive food and music festival that attracts a large number of attendees, as well as top of the line chefs and musicians.

The Democratic Alliance Plans after Shocking Trump Triumph

George Soros has been a household name in the US due to his various contributions to politics and society. His name is widely mentioned in Democrats politics as one of the founders of the Democratic Alliance (DA).

Soros is Hungarian-born American. He is a businessman, an investor, philanthropist, author, and political activist. He strongly values the family setup. He has a wife, children, and grandchildren. He is a self-made billionaire and currently chairs Soros Fund Management. George Soros is very philanthropic as he donates funds to organizations and individuals fighting against oppression and violations of freedoms of expressions among others. He is committed to spending his money in fighting against an oppressive and unaccountable government besides funding promotion of justice and equality in the society.

Soros is an ardent member and supporter of the Democrat Party on Time. He has been giving his social and financial support to the Democratic presidential and other positions candidates during their campaigns. He is on record as a chief financier of the Democratic candidates in the previous elections.

During the just concluded election, he was one of the chief financiers of the Hillary Clinton campaigns as well as other Democratic candidates on project-syndicate.org. He spent millions on Hillary campaigns with the hope of taking to the white house. However, she did not win the elections.

The shocking win by Donald Trump prompted George Soros and the other member of the Democratic Alliance to convene a meeting to discuss the way forward. The Democratic Alliance members at http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1997/02/the-capitalist-threat/376773/ felt that they should do something to challenge the election of Donald Trump. The aim of doing this is to protect and safeguard the Obama legacy that Trump had promised to discard. One of the legacies that DA feels the Trump regime might assault includes the ObamaCare.

The meeting was held at Mandarin Hotel in Washington. The meeting was sponsored by the Democrat All Donor Club. The meeting brought together member of the DA, union leaders, and liberal groups on nytimes.com.

In this meeting, Soros together with other Democrat diehards and liberals discussed the reasons for losing the elections. They noted that Hillary lost as the Democrat failed to capture the entire working class whites vote which Trump did. Besides, the money and climate were not a major factor in the just concluded elections. They realized that majority of the liberal activists resided in the coastal cities and did not connect with the working class whites.

Therefore, the DA decided that to retrace this working class votes, the alliance should invest in training the officials and come up with state policies. The activist should also win the confidence of the working class whites. The DA donors should invest in the formulation of and implementation of the state and local strategies that would prevent assault to the Obama legacies.

Soros and his fellow wealthy donors and Democrats just want to ensure that Trump regime respects and upholds the immense work that the outgoing president has done. The meeting was not bound to challenge the decision of the majority, but to make sure the incoming regime will not oppress the citizens.

NFL MVP Award for Matt Ryan of Falcons’

The betting market of NFL MVP is very entertaining because the players can grab the game’s top honor. Players like Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady go up and down on the board due to their performance in the field. However, players like Derek Carr and Matt Ryan frequently toss a touchdown. The players of Dallas Cowboys’ Dark Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott perform very well despite being not very young. Things get difficult there for a sportsbook that takes money for MVP odds due to exposure of all those players on the list. There are some players whose odds moved since last year.

Last week Ryan started with 90/1 and moved to 100/1 for MVP. While talking to Covers.com in November, risk management supervisor Peter Childs said Ryan was not there for long, but several bets at 100/1 can lead to liability. During Week 2 and 4, Julio and Ryan were very visible on the scoreboards as they moved Atlanta to 8-5 record win to Week 15. Surprisingly Ryan’s odds were behind Elliot and Brady although they were at +450. The ESPNpoll and 4-0 victory made Ryan the most valuable player according to all writers. At -400, he became the top MVP for odds makers. Childs said it did not stop money from coming in little by little on Ryan. It was continuously going higher on him. Only Covers.com provide such information which makes it easy and effective to place bets on Super Bowl odds, Football odds, and NFL odds.

The overall favorite of the season was Rodgers who opened at +450. However, suspension of Brady for four games changed the situation. Green Bay lost consecutive four games with a record of 4-2 which changed Rodgers’ price to 8/1. After that, Cheeseheads won ending six games which earned them a postseason ticket. Now Rodger is giving a very good value at the present price as his opening odds are back. Childs praised Rodgers saying that no one could do it but Rodgers did it for his team despite injuries, losing players, and other struggles. The second overall favorite was Brady who claimed third MVP in 2016-17 at 6/1. The price raised to +1500 when Patriots were banned for four games by NFL at the beginning of the season. The price jumped to +2000 as New England defeated SU 3-1. At that time, Bettors got the discount price on MVP odds for Brady. Super Bowl Odds, Football odds, and NFL odds are fun to know.
