Dating, Socializing, And Virtual Travel Is All On The Skout Network

Julie Spira has done it again. Every year Julie creates a list of the most popular dating applications, and she has created a new list for the year 2015, which is featured in TCPALM. The list includes many different applications, such as Tinder, Zoosk, Let’s Date, and Skout. Although Skout came in at #7 on the list, it’s still renowned as a great application, especially since it’s available in so many countries around the world. Skout is one of the earliest dating applications, so it’s amazing that it still can make it onto a top ten list that’s been around for years.

Dating has changed tremendously over the years, but it may just be for the better. Those who expected to meet someone through a friend or family member and then go on a date can now find dates on their own by going online to websites like Skout. Skout isn’t only a website, but it’s a dating application as well that mimics the website almost perfectly. Those who use the Skout application can get a lot out of it because they can easily find a date, find a friend, or find something fun to do. The Skout application, as well as the website, has been around for many years.

Those who are used to dating anywhere else but online may be shell-shocked when it comes time to use a dating application, but this generation is very used to dating online. It’s possible that older persons, such as those in their 40s or 50s may have a problem with online dating, but even they can get in on the fun on the Skout network.

Skout has different ways of entertaining their members as well as helping them to find who or what they’re looking for. Those who are looking for a place to socialize can easily use Skout, and they’ll conduct a search to find other people who have similar interests as them. Anyone who’s looking to find a date can choose from the millions of people on the Skout network to see if someone is compatible with them. Some people who join Skout like to travel, and the Skout Travel feature is a great way to travel virtually around the world.

Skout has so many things going on that anyone of any age can enjoy the network, and most of the features don’t cost a thing. Any features that cost money can be paid for by using what’s called Skout points. Skout points are purchased with a credit or debit card on the network, and then the points can be stored in one’s personal account. When the Skout points are needed for a purchase, then they are simply deducted from the account to use for a purchase, and the balance can be saved for later.

Mr. Dias has written ten books with many more on the way. He primarily works in the realm of Brazilian fiction, but he is a painter as well and his hard work and devotion has ensured that Brazilian literature has been become a more prominent component within literature as a whole.

Mr. Dias has won a variety of literary accolades for his works, and to a lesser degree what he’s posted to his blog over the years. One of the most prestigious honors he has received is the ABC Award for Brazil.

Kyle Bass, Hedge Fund Manager: How to Profit from Economic Disasters

Kyle Bass is a hedge fund manager. Hedge funds involve unusually risky investments, based on borrowed money. A more traditional investor can start off with $1 million dollars to invest, and might, if the investment is bad, end up with nothing. A hedge fund manager can start off with nothing, and end up $1 million in debt.

Kyle Bass graduated from Texas Christian University in 1992 with a BA in Finance, and has been immersed in the high stakes world of global finance and investment ever since. He started with Prudential Securities, then moved to Bear Stearns (where he got into hedge funds), then worked for Legg Mason, Inc., before he founded his own hedge fund, Hayman Capital, in 2006.

He soon burst into a global spotlight in the financial and hedge fund world by anticipating the subprime mortgage crisis in 2006 and 2007, investing millions of dollars in credit default swaps. When mortgage based securities went into default in great numbers starting in 2007, Hayman Capital made huge profits from those credit default swaps. It also profited from the economic difficulties in Greece in 2012, and Japan in 2013.

But recently Bass’ luck has turned bad. A major GM stock holder, he suffered when GM was hit by the scandal involving defects in its autos that disabled their airbags. Hayman Capital has placed large and possibly losing bets on the economy of Argentina, and the price of oil. He has become a major (and isolated) defender of the leftist and probably corrupt regime of Cristina de Kirchner in Argentina, for which (it is suspected) he has been rewarded handsomely by that regime.

In spite of those possible payoffs from de Kirchner, 2014 and 2015 have been bad years for Bass. To tide him over, he has formed the Coalition for Affordable Drugs. He short sells the stocks of pharmaceutical firms, that is, he places a “bet” of sorts that those stocks will become cheaper. Then the Coalition files law suits against those firms, claiming that their patents for important drugs are illegitimate. Voila!

Most recently, Bass claims that the China is in for a “hard landing” because of a looming banking crisis. China’s GDP is $10 trillion. There are $31 trillion dollars in its banking system. According to Bass, “emerging markets should never have 300% of GDP on their books.” What will happen to China as a result?
