The Consumer Electronics Show, an annual event that takes place in January in Las Vegas, revealed the current and future of technology for the next four decades. What’s most current and advanced is there, and as reported by the website CNET, CES 2016 did not change the world, but showed how much change there is in the world. According to executive of Banco BMG Marcio Alaor, the event this year was headlining a drone with room for a passenger, electric cars, and cameras attached to everyday objects that will change the way we interact in our homes.
The Drone Ehanng 184
Drones were the main attraction at CES 2016, but the most acclaimed was the Ehang 184. The drone is designed for a passenger and gives us the belief that flying cars have finally arrived. Because it is a drone, it is not necessary or possible to fly it. Just pre-program the path, sit back, and enjoy the trip. “For now, it has the flight capacity of only 23 minutes,” said Marcio Alaor BMG, “and reaches a maximum height of 3.5 kilometers.” The drone is manufactured by the Chinese corporation Ehang, which continues to work on the invention. “Your biggest concern is security,” said Marcio Alaor, executive of Banco BMG. “Therefore, the Chinese company is working to set up a control center to take control of the drone when needed.” Watch the video made by the company: http://bit.ly/1ITJrj0
Electric cars were also an attraction at the electronics fair and apparently the trend of the current automotive sector. Confirmed by Marcio Alaor of Banco BMG, the company General Motors introduced the Chevrolet Bolt in 2017 in its final version. The car will be available by the end of this year at a starting price of $30,000. See more about the car at the chevrolet.com website. Ford and Volkswagen are also putting stock into electric cars and showed prototypes, confirming the increased number of these vehicles on the market in years ahead. Ford has announced plans to put 13 hybrid cars on the market in 2020, while Volkswagen decided to reinvent its classic Kombi with an electric prototype. Imagine never having to search for a gas station. It may happen.
Also new were cameras connected to objects. They are attached to everything. For example, in the refrigerator. “If you’re in the grocery store and don’t remember if you have to buy milk, your refrigerator will send a photo of its interior and the problem will be solved,” says Marcio Alaor, executive of Banco BMG. The Samsung brand refrigerator will cost about $ 5,000.
The first CES took place in New York City in 1967. Since then, many devices used by us were presented first hand at the event. Some examples include: the VCR at CES 1970, the Compact Disc Player, presented in 1981, the DVD in 1996, plasma television in 2001, and Blu-Ray DVDs in 2003. The CES 2017 already has a date and will be between January 5-8 next year again in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Thor Halvorssen, the founder of the Human Rights Foundation, recently gave an interview on Fox News where he sits above the graphical banner “Socialism Violating Rights”. But that banner belies the content of the interview itself. During the three minute interview, the founder of the Human Rights Foundation explains that socialism is not bad and does not violate human rights. Socialism is simply a form of government that human beings can use for the good of all people or that authoritarian dictators can use to perpetuate crimes against humanity. It is not, itself, a bad thing despite the attempts of Fox News to slam socialism and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
We are fortunate that the interviewee was Thor Halvorssen. The man’s own father was a political prisoner of the socialist dictator of Venezuela. Human rights groups had to negotiate the release of his father but not before his father was tortured by the dictators government. It seems that Fox News believed Thor would hate socialism unequivocally, but Thor is smarter than that.
Thor Halvorssen repeatedly tries to make the distinction between socialism and human rights to the hostess throughout the interview. When she doesn’t buy Thor’s argument, he goes for the coup de grace, telling her that he supports Sen. Bernie Sanders bid for the White House. He even tells her the exact amount that he is donated to the campaign — $2,700, the most allowable for an individual under US law in 2016.
The human rights activist then aims the interview at the proper targets, namely those candidates that support dictatorships, such as Hillary Clinton.
He continues to explain that he does not agree with everything that Bernie Sanders stands for, but he’d rather see a democratic socialist in the White House than a supporter of dictatorships, especially someone who is taken money from said dictators. You’ve got to wonder if Thor Halvorssen will ever be invited on Fox News again. Connect with Thor on Facebook to keep up with news and events he is involved with.
We are living in a time where many women around the world are enjoying more opportunities than they ever have before. From women like the educated and beautiful First Lady Michelle Obama to mega pop star Beyonce and the inspiring education activist and Nobel Prize nominee Malala Yousafzai, many women are getting the chance to live their dreams and break down important barriers. One of the exciting things about the progress that women from a wide variety of backgrounds are making is knowing that it will have a huge impact on making things better for women and girls in the future. This will mean that young women will have an even greater ability to dream in the future than they do today.
The First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama has recognized that in order for girls to grow into women with bright futures they must have access to the opportunity to become educated. Last year the First Lady and President Barack Obama launched a pro-education campaign known as Let Girls Learn. The Let Girls Learn campaign seeks to promote women’s empowerment by ensuring that the educational needs of the estimated 62 million girls who are not enrolled school are met. According to the campaign, education is incredibly vital to the wellbeing of girls around the world. The campaign posits that when girls are not educated they can fall victim to life-altering circumstances such as early marriage and HIV/AIDS. They can also have a much harder time getting access to avenues for economic advancement.
As campaigns like the American First Lady’s Let Girls Learn initiative show, it is vital for girls to have access to educational opportunities. QNET believes that it is not only important for girls to have educational opportunities but that it is crucial for them to have employment opportunities to look forward to when they complete their educations. QNET seeks to be a provider of such employment opportunities by offering women in a large number of countries the chance to own their own businesses. QNET believes that promoting female entrepreneurship is a vital part of promoting women’s empowerment. In an article published on the website Gulf News 24/7, QNET Regional General Manager Khaled Diab cited the fact that nearly three-quarters of the people employed in the direct selling business are women. QNET offers its female employees the chance to become business owners and the chance to sell products that improve the lives of female consumers.
