End Citizens United Feels That Cory Booker Did A Fantastic Job

Cory Booker declined corporate political action committee (PAC) money. End Citizens United (ECU) felt that the senator made a perfect decision. Booker joined the ongoing trend of candidates rejecting corporate PACs. ECU encourages candidates to turn down funds aimed at special interests.

Rejecting the PAC money showed his leadership and desire to stop the system that leaves behind many Americans according to votesmart.org. He demonstrated his interest in fighting for the people’s rights, and not corporate special interests.

Through its president, Muller Tiffany, ECU expressed its gratitude to Cory Booker. Members were assured that he would help mend the broken system and create one that promotes democracy.

With an endorsement from ECU, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand declared during her re-election campaigns, that she would reject PAC money. ECU already had a list of more than 70 candidates who supported this initiative. Some of the endorsed candidates are Andy Kim, Elissa Slotkin, Beto O’Rourke, Conor Lamb, Christina Hartman, and Dean Phillips.

Washington’s policies frustrated most voters. As such, they felt that any candidate who supported ECU was committed to fighting for their rights, against the corporate special interests.

ECU is an organization that gives voice to American families. It also seeks to eradicate BIG Money from politics. This way, Congress will focus on every American citizen and not the special interest donors.

Boraie Development Provides a Solution to New Jersey’s Housing Crisis

If you have been keeping up with the housing market in New Jersey, chances are you’re well aware that the garden state was significantly impacted by the recession. In fact, during this time, New Jersey reportedly surpassed nearly every state in the U.S., in terms of foreclosures and delinquent mortgages. Although every state in the union was impacted by the recession, which lasted from 2007 to 2009, New Jersey was hit particularly hard, resulting in a calamitous downturn in state’s real estate market. However, as the U.S. began to climb out of the recession, and New Jersey saw an upswing in their local economy, a new housing problem arose.

Although a rebounding economy may sound great, it revealed a new set of real estate challenges for New Jersey. In fact, several studies have pointed to New Jersey’s strengthening economy as the impetus for the state’s current housing shortage, and according to Lawrence Yun, a chief realtor economist with the National Association of Realtors, the gap between the state’s available housing and consumer demand is expected to increase. So, how will New Jersey avoid, yet another, housing crisis? It’s simple, build new homes.

If you’re unfamiliar with Boraie Development, they are a leading real estate development company based in New Brunswick, NJ.

The project is said to be in the neighborhood of $81 million, in terms of development cost, making it one of the largest modern-day apartment projects in the state of New Jersey. Needless to say, local government officials are ecstatic; Aaron Randolph, Atlantic City’s first ward city councilman, expressed his enthusiasm for the project and is pleased to see years of planning finally come to fruition.

Israeli’s former Ambassador, Daniel Taub

Due to the perception that the British had on the Israelis, some constituencies and campus had declared themselves Israeli free zones. One such constituency was Bradford West which was spearheaded by its MP, George Galloway. Nothing associated with the Israeli was accepted in such regions including business activities.

From his observation, David Taub found that the people of Bradford were not actually keen on George’s ban but they were warm and ready to welcome diversity. This meant that George did not actually represent the people’s opinions but his own.

In his wise words, David Taub commented that the past of the Israeli people should not be taken to their future since they are in a process of making a better future for themselves. Although George Galloway has been an anti-Israel activist since time immemorial, David was never hard on his statements but he was able to reason uprightly.

WAX Token


WAX (Worldwide Asset Exchange), is a platform enabling anyone to be in the virtual gaming assets marketplace by reducing the transaction costs while creating market for games that were not previously not possible for asset transfer. It would also fractionalize player’s profits and allow virtual asset ownership and pioneer an accessible economy that may be expanded into physical assets.


WAX and Virtual asset bonds


The greatest challenge to tokenization of assets is monitoring and ensuring block chains are constantly tied to their asset. This WAX sorts by creation of a governance approach which is multi-layered to create a regulatory oversight by those who hold tokens. There are supervisory committees (Guild) and rating systems plus an algorithm that is used for proof of stake.

This ensures security since if a rogue transfer agent fails in their duty, the Guild has to step in to protect its reputation by taking action on the agent otherwise token holders will not allow them governorship of their game. This loop of economic feedback ensures that WAX tokens will perpetually be connected onto the virtual asset


Fractionalization of items and value enhancement


Guilds will authenticate items and monitor ownership as the agents deal with asset delivery by ensuring all WAX tokens are in connection with their rightful owners. Those Guilds with high reputation will then increase their products value which will deter sellers from selling without updating the WAX token in the on-chain. This means that value increases in tandem with a networks reputation and its credibility. The question still remains how soon will this move onto the physical asset ownership world?
