Achievements of Daniel Taub as Israeli Ambassador to Britain

Daniel Taub served as the Israeli ambassador to Britain for four years before resigning in the summer of 2015. Being a British born Jew, he is one of the leading diplomats in the country. However, that never changed his beliefs as an Orthodox Jew, even for once.

After resigning, Daniel went back to Israel. It is hard not to note the big roles he played in improving the relationship between the two countries. Below are some of the things that the former ambassador will always be remembered for.

Doubling of Trade between Israeli and British

Just before he quit, it was noted that the trade between Israel and UK had doubled and so were the business, cultural, and academic ties between the two nations.

During Daniel’s time, the two nations entered the “golden era” with the Israel-Britain Chambers of Commerce reporting that over three hundred Israeli business operations were set up in Britain. The report further indicated that the annual bilateral trade between the two countries reached over $5.5 billion.

Promoted Unity of the Two Countries

In 2014, the then Bradford West MP George Galloway made a controversial comment stating that Bradford was an “Israel Free Zone”. This comment led to a social media outcry and Daniel Taub decided to pay a visit to the constituency, which he explained came after an invitation by the residents.

From the visit, Taub noted that the community’s view on having Israeli’s businesses and products in the constituency was different from what Galloway had said.

He went ahead to praise the people for accepting to live together in harmony regardless of their faiths and backgrounds. He also asked the people to join hands with the government in trying to create a better future for everyone instead of trying to pull everyone to the past.

Aloha Construction Set to Receive More Work as the Construction Industry Picks Up

The usually booming America’s construction industry, courtesy of residential segment, was slowed down by last year’s presidential election. The industry typically records over 18,000 jobs in some months of the year; however, 2017 has been tough for the construction industry with some months getting barely 6000 jobs created. Many companies in the construction sector including Aloha Construction, a company which focusses on roofing services, were dissatisfied with the few jobs that were available immediately after the election. However, things seem to be picking up well with many construction companies getting a handful of construction work.

The America’s construction industry is the pacesetter of the rate of activities in other sectors of the economy. Companies such as Aloha Construction buy their building materials from manufacturers. If a lot of materials are purchased from manufacturers, the manufacturing industry is considered to be booming. Again, a company like Aloha Construction needs funding to undertake its roofing services, guttering services, siding services, and door and window replacement services; banks are primary lenders to players in the construction industry. If banks are dishing out a lot of loans, the finance sector is deemed booming. If the construction sector is booming, it goes without saying that other areas of the economy are doing well; the opposite is also true.

Aloha Construction has created employment opportunities for some residents of Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. Also, the company has contributed to the local economies of the mentioned areas. Aloha Construction’s philanthropic foundation, Dave Farbaky Foundation, has donated to progressive courses in Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.Aloha Construction prides itself on being a unique home repair company. An average construction firm may deem some things unimportant when they are undertaking their repair services. However, Aloha Construction will not only provide quality, cost effective, and professional services but the company will ensure your pets are safe.

George Soros From Simple Beginning to Philanthropy

Most people have heard something about George Soros at least once in their lives. Many people don’t know much about this man. His personal story is quite remarkable, and it takes the reader from Europe to the United Kingdom and then to the United States in several decades. It is a story about a man who made a life and a future for himself. And his success helped him to start giving back to people and support those in need of a lucky charm. His humble beginnings make this man who he is today.George Soros was born in Hungary before the war. In the 1930s his family didn’t know that the World War II would change their lives forever. George comes from a Jewish background, but his family managed to survive the war, and in 1947 he immigrated to London. He worked different little jobs as a waiter and a porter while he acquired his first higher education degree at the London School of Economics. He wanted to work in finance, so after he graduated, George Soros started looking for a job.

It took writing letters to all the leading banks in London till he was invited to an entry-level position. This job was his first real experience in the world of finance and showed George that he had chosen the right career.In the 50s he moved to the United States where he started working as an arbitrage trader and later as an analyst. He never gave up even though it wasn’t the easiest of career paths to follow and eventually climbed the ladder becoming a vice president and investment fund manager. This job allowed Soros to start his foundation. The Soros Fund Management was born in the early 70s and is still in business.A career in finance allowed George Soros to start his philanthropy.

Coming from a simple background, he valued education first and foremost. He donated money to the countries in the former Soviet Union to help them create world class universities.One of them is the Riga Graduate School of Law and the Baltic Republic of Latvia. Soros also contributed to set up the Central European University in Budapest. He donated money so black students could attend university in Cape Town during the apartheid in South Africa.His efforts to promote education also go hand in hand with his support of equality, democracy, LGBTI and women’s rights. George Soros supports a democratic and free society that upholds equal and universal human rights. His philanthropy is a testament to these efforts. It is clear that his personal history shaped him into a man he is today and had an impact on his beliefs. He is a survivor, and he helps others survive and thrive as much as possible.
