The political right would like the world to believe the liberal billionaire philanthropist George Soros is a one man political machine who has been leading the direction of left wing groups for years. However, Politico reports George Soros has not been politically engaged in direct action for a number of years, but has recently returned to political action in 2015 and 2016 as he became concerned about the direction being taken by right wing groups who were rising to power across the U.S. and parts of Europe; Soros did make his name in the U.S. as a political donor with a dedicated push to elect Democrat John Kerry as the President of the U.S. in the face of the possibility of a second term for President George W. Bush. Soros had described Bush as being a danger to the security of the world and held similar views on the work of President Donald J. Trump during his election campaign and first few months in office in 2016 and 2017.
In 2016, George Soros began developing his political ambitions once again for the campaign of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Soros was described by his advisors as rarely being as politically motivated as he has been in 2016. Soros did not quite match the political giving levels he reached in 2004 for John Kerry’s campaign that reached more than $27 million, Clinton’s campaign and supporting groups benefited from around $25 million in support that was used in her bid for The White House. After the election of Donald Trump, the Holocaust survivor has remained an active member of the Democratic Party for whom he plays a key role in the development of policy and financial donations that are designed to drive the Democrat’s back to power in the next round of elections in 2018.

On January 22, 2015, Marc Sparks of Timber Creek Capital L.P. announced that the firm will be moving to a new location. After more than 10 years in its present office location, Timber Creek Capital L.P. will be moving to an environment that is more conducive for collaboration and startup incubation said founder and CEO Marc Sparks. Mr. Sparks is the owner of Timber Creek Capital L.P. and a highly successful serial entrepreneur in his own right. Timber Creek L.P. helps fund entrepreneurs to start profit generating companies.
Marc Sparks says that to develop a successful and profitable business one must first have a business model in place and then acquire the resources needed to build up that business using the model one has created. Timber Creek Capital L.P has three different companies in its office location. Each one can help entrepreneurs and startups build up their idea in the crucial “incubation period”. The owner of Timber Creek Capital L.P. also added that as an entrepreneur himself, he understands how important a quality, conductive and collaborative work place is to building the success of a new business. It accounts for at least a quarter of the successful outcome of a company if not more said Mark Sparks.
The Texas entrepreneur Mark Sparks also made an analogy to how important work environment really is to the successful outcome of a business and its effect on employees. He asked that would you work harder and thrive in an office that had blacked out windows and was in a sketchy neighborhood or one that was in a prime location such as Fifth Avenue in Manhattan with lots of windows and many successful people walking past the office? While he admits he has given an extreme example, Marc Sparks says that it is important to realize that where you work is just as important as how you work. If you cut corners on the location it can be just as bad as cutting corners in the business process.
Besides investing in entrepreneurs and startups through Timber Creek Capital L.P. Marc Sparks is involved in philanthropy. He supports organizations such as Habitat For Humanity that builds affordable homes for low income families and the American Can! Academy that works with at-risk youth. Mr. Sparks recently donated over a thousand laptops to the American Can! Academy. He has also been involved with The Samaritan Inn, which is a shelter for the homeless that accommodates up to 160 people each night in the Dallas Fort Worth area.
Mark Sparks is also a published author. He has written the autobiographical and business book called They Can’t Eat You. It uses examples from Sparks’ own life to illustrate how tough the road to entrepreneurship can be and discusses ways to overcome obstacles.

This could be anything from a child’s toy to your kitchen toaster. Essentially allowing devices to connect and increase their efficiency. The Internet of Things stands to change the way that all people and businesses work and interact with each other.
For 2017 this technology might just be convenient for its users, but Hope thinks that it will be the only way towards the future in the years to come. While most only envision the internet as being accessible from their smartphone or their computer right now, soon companies will be vying for the greatest tech that can bring these all together into one single app that spans multiple devices and scenarios. Transportation is one example of an industry that has benefited from the IoT, Hope declares. Smarter technology has allowed for better monitoring and maintenance for buses and real-time route information to increase travel times and avoid dangerous conditions.
Jason Hope’s confidence in the Internet of Things seems well placed and will hopefully lead to a brighter, safer, and smarter future for us all.
