Autism Awareness Month starts on April 2. A devastating developmental disorder that affects millions of children worldwide. On April 1, Autism Rocks will hold a festival to raise donations for research and awareness for this disorder. Autism Rocks is the organization started by Usha and Sanjay Shah Denmark because of their son and a desire to help those afflicted. These popular festivals raise money for research and awareness.
Shah feels like there is a great deal of support for children with special needs. He wants to increase exposure for these children and help to encourage research as to why this disease happens and what can be done to help those afflicted. Since 2014, he has raised 600,000 E with charity concerts, featuring the likes of Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Michael Buble, and Drake. These concerts took place in London and Dubai. This year the line up included Tyga and Flo Rida to help rope in the youth.
This family event to help autism includes live music and fun events, like laser tag, crazy golf, zip line, horse rides, inflatables, petting zoo, and a barbecue. This event will surely raise the donations for this cause and help increase awareness and research.

Goettl, an air conditioning company that services Nevada, has released some pet safety tips for the hottest months of the year. Pets can be especially vulnerable at this time. First customers need to keep those delicate paws off the pavement. One surefire test to see if the pavement is too hot is to hold your hand to the pavement. If you can’t hold it for ten seconds without feeling heat, then it is way too hot for them. Many owners don’t realize this fact, but dogs need sunscreen applied to their ears and noise. Two areas that aren’t fuzzy.
Other tips and tricks include getting groomed to keep the air moving and to keep them hydrated. The heat can harm their little bodies. A fun and creative way to keep them cool is to have a doggie pool. They can splish splash in the yard and avoid the summer heat. Also, keep the garage secure, because common summer dangers like fertilizer and antifreeze are tempting to little doggies. With these tips, you are sure to keep your dog safe and cool for the summer.
Goettl Air Conditioning was founded in 1939 by Adam and Gust Goettl. They came to Las Vegas in 1968 but left in 2007. Ken Goodrich acquired the company in 2013 and brought it back to Las Vegas in 2016. Goodrich remembers the nights holding the flashlight for his father when he went out on service calls. He brought that love of HVAC and dedication to his customers to his business.

Who is Des Perez?
Maybe you have heard of her or maybe you haven’t yet, but either way she is a name that is fast gaining recognition. Desiree’s name has been associated with Jay-Z recently and with good reason; she is one of the executives behind much of Tidal’s recent success.
She is the kind of leader and boss that you love to see on the front lines of major music productions and star-studded singers. She is responsible for a number of big deals that have shown what she’s made of and she doesn’t back down from negotiations. She knows the music world and is an expert at navigating it. With her kind of confidence and her experience, she is someone that makes people sit up and take notice.
One of the ways that she has helped to propel her career and that of others forward is through her involvement with Tidal, a music streaming platform that recently acquired big names like Kanye and Rihanna putting it up against other popular music apps like Spotify and iTunes.
Tidal wasn’t so well-known until recently. While it always offered high-fidelity streaming, the added help of a strong-handed negotiator who is an expert at making deals has it becoming a staple on music-lovers the world around.
What Tidal offers that sets it apart from other music streaming apps is its option for top quality listening. Users can go all out for $19.99 a month for perfect audio or choose a more affordable price at $9.99. While the lower price may be cheaper, Tidal executives make sure that customers still get to listen to great music, just maybe with less of the clear and lossless quality that the high-fidelity option provides.
Tidal is the first musician-owned streaming music app available these days and maybe due to this factor is one that offers the best rate for musicians. This is a positive for Tidal and for Desiree Perez as musicians, singers, and performers are definitely in it to win it and getting paid a fair amount for their talent is sure to bring more musicians to the Tidal music platform.
Enterprise Radio features intriguing interviews with a host of different people from the world of business. Philip N. Diehl, the President of U.S. Money Reserve, visited the program to discuss a topic dear to his heart: gold coins. Specifically, he talked about the value of gold coins as they relate to investing. PR Newswire summarized some nice highlights from the interview. Listening to the entire interview is strongly suggested.
What makes Diehl’s interview so engaging is he does not try to make a huge sales pitch for gold. Instead, he discusses a number of reasons why gold investing is so popular. One reason is people are (wisely) worried about the policies of the Federal Reserve. Weak monetary policy could lead to currency devaluation which, in turn, means a loss of net worth. Gold acts as a hedge against weak currencies since gold is a precious metal. Ironically, gold coins produced by the U.S. Mint are legitimate currency backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government.
Diehl, a former Director of the U.S. Mint, suggests gold coins make a good investment when they are backed by a government. Obviously, legitimately minted U.S. coins are not going to be deemed lacking in any claimed value. Diehl reveals imports of bars and bullion, sadly, are sometimes counterfeit. People paying thousands of dollars for these dubious assets eventually found out they are worthless. And they find out the hard way.

Diehl does note some of the interest in gold is due to buying and selling on the part of speculators. Diehl does caution about following in the steps of a trader. He feels gold is best served as an investment put away for many years. Diehl is not into trading or flipping gold for a quick profit. He feels such an approach is just a bit too risky.
Whatever the reason one chooses to invest in gold, buying from the right seller is always a good idea. U.S. Money Reserve sells a host of U.S. Mint-produced coins and this should put customers at ease. Additionally, U.S. Money Reserve puts a lot of emphasis on good customer service. Everything from the initial inquiry to the eventual shipping is done with a sharp emphasis on making sure the customer is happy. Read more: US Money Reserve TV Commercials – iSpot.tv
Diehl notes he was one of the few Directors who really pushed customer service while at the U.S. Mint. Under his leadership, the U.S. Mint achieved an exceptional amount of distribution growth. Diehl brought his deep commitment to keeping customers happy to U.S. Money Reserve. Things are working well and customers are thrilled.
The interview is an intriguing one. Those wondering about how the gold market works definitely should give it a listen.
At least 400 people have been arrested by Venezuelan state police after the latest scourge of looting and rioting due to the country’s persistent food shortages. The Venezuelan Observatory of Violence reported that at least 10 episodes of looting happens on a daily basis in the country. And according to Aserne, a handful of people have been shot and killed by police and soldiers in this week alone.
Amidst the chaos President Nicolás Maduro is accusing opposition parties of waging an economic war against him in an attempt to overthrow his regime. He has made similar grandstanding claims in the past, but so far for expert Manuel Gonzalez has done virtually nothing to quell the violence that is spreading like wildfire across the country. Even if voted out of office, his vice-President would take over, meaning the political party in power now would still remain in power even after being symbolically ousted by the voice of the people.
It has always been safer to invest in Gold especially when risks for other investment options are escalating. Most economists say that if you want to sit turbulence, do it with gold. In an article that appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Billionaire investor George Soros is reported to have taken a bet on gold of US$264 million. George Soros bought the shares in the Canadian gold miner hence increasing to 1.7% his stake in the gold miner company.
George Soros is known for taking investment risks and making crazy bets. Though not all his bets pay off, most of them have paid off and making him so much wealth. In him growing his stake in Gold investment, George must be up to something, and that is what every person keen on investment trends wants to understand. George Soros historical interest can be traced to the fact that he is Hungarian born. He fled Budapest just before the start of World War II to London. Some people have interpreted his bet on gold as betting against the Euro and the European Union unraveling.
From his recent comments, Soros seem to believe that the American economy could have a repeat of the crisis experienced in 2008. There are already risks threatening to take the economy back there like the Chinese Yuan revaluation and Italy leaving the Euro. According to Soros, the situations remind him of the 2008 crisis. George Soros could be safeguarding himself from the losses that can be brought about by such risks.
George Soros | The New York Review of Books
The big question remains whether Soros is betting on a decline in the United States stock market, or he is just trying to hedge his portfolio by use of these options. The market is also watching to see whether he will reduce his Stock investment further. According to Todd Salamone, Schaeffer’s Investment Research senior vice president of research there is not such a significant risk in the stock market. He says that either Soros made a significant bet against stocks or if his aim is a hedge Soros doubled his caution.
Born in Hungary and holding two citizenships (Hungarian and American), George Soros has been known to make money whether markets are going up or down. His market observation is therefore trusted, and many investors give an ear to his market interpretations. He rose to fame in September 1992 when he risked $10 billion speculating on a single currency the British pound. On a single day, he generated profits of $1 billion. Due to this, he is famously known as “the man who broke the Bank of England.”
George Soros is also known for running the Quantum Fund, which generated an annual return of over 30% when he was at the helm. Apart from being a renown investor, George Soros is an author and a philanthropist. He has fourteen books to his name advising on investment and challenges facing the European Union. Soros philanthropic activities started in the 1970s when he began funding black students in South Africa to attend the University of Cape Town.
