Assisted Living Facilities are Increasing in Quality as They Increase in Number


Twenty-five years ago there were very few options for senior citizens to receive long-term care. They had to choose between living in their homes with in-home care or going to nursing homes when they grew older. Nursing homes were used for everyone whether they required constant medical care or simply needed assistance in everyday tasks; clients did not receive individualized care.


In recent years, assisted living facilities have grown as the number one housing option for the senior housing solution for seniors who can otherwise live independently. For many, growing older can be accomplished gracefully with a minimum level of care that allows them to enjoy this new phase of life.


Differences in Assisted Living Facilities


Assisted Living Communities are not all alike because every state or province has different licensing requirements. Some ALFs are combined with a skilled nursing facility, and these types of communities are prepared to accommodate their clients from an assisted living situation to one that requires advanced medical care.


Assisted living communities focus on helping their clients with their basic daily activities, so their clients can live independently. Most ALFs provide hygiene, bathing, toileting, dressing, eating, medicine monitoring and using the telephone and shopping among the basic services, but, more can be added depending on the community.


The Manse on Marsh


The Manse on Marsh is a premier assisted living facility located in San Luis Obispo, and it is an excellent example for ALFs across the country. The Manse focuses on a healthy, secure and interactive environment for their residents by offering townhouses, condos and single family homes for their clients, according to OurParents.


This community has prime services including 24-hour security and supervision of the property, immediate response systems linked to professional medical care, chef-prepared meals, laundry, housekeeping, dressing, grooming, bathing, transportation to local businesses and many social events and programs that are incorporated into the daily schedule. The added benefit is that The Manse participates in a health care program that only charges clients for the services they require.



The Manse on Marsh has a warm family atmosphere that is stress-free and peaceful, so residents can enjoy their lives, and participate in many activities. The excellence and care of this facility makes a perfect model for future ALFs.  Follow the news on Twitter, or see how The Manse on Marsh is improving the lives of their elderly residents through their blog.

Dick DeVos’ Big Hand in Philanthropy

The DeVos family has a rich history of entrepreneurship as well as a generous hand that is visible in various charitable organizations. Dick DeVos as a separate entity is also as successful as the other members of his family. He is a household name in American business not only because of his family name.


His flagship corporate, The Windquest Group, is also a force to reckon with in various industries spanning from liquor to education. Dick DeVos formerly served as the president of the Orlando Magic NBA franchise and the Amway group. Other areas of operation include technology, clean energy as well as manufacturing among others. Community involvement that is in line with his family’s contributions has also contributed to his fame. Dick DeVos married Betsy DeVos, and they have four children.


Despite their busy lives, the DeVos dedicate a lot of time to philanthropy aimed at creating solutions to social problems. Betsy DeVos is the unseen hand that does a lot of management work. These roles are in her capacity as the chairperson of The Windquest Group. She is also the chairperson of the Dick and Dick DeVos Family Foundation.


This foundation separates their philanthropic work from the larger DeVos family philanthropy. However, their involvement in furtherance of education stands out due to its impact on the lives of many disadvantaged children. The desire to see education change peoples’ lives started early while their children were in school.


Their love for education has also seen Dick serve on the State Board of Education. In their capacity as a family, they initiated the Education Freedom Fund that has awarded over four thousand scholarships to date. With involvement in education, Dick DeVos has been an active contributor to arts and justice programs.


These and many other engagements have contributed to advancing their good name. Launched over thirty years ago, the foundation as an avenue for their philanthropic work. Both founders possess excellent education credentials that are partly the reason behind their interest in education.


The Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation is mainly intent on catalyzing partners or organizations. These organizations position communities both locally and internationally for viability as well as growth. With a belief in boldness, the DeVos are always ready to take the first step. Hard work is also a culture that they have adopted despite tutoring others into the business. However, they have a commitment to making a difference in whatever initiatives they are involved.

Vanity Fair Asks Kyle Bass “Why Things Fail”

Prognostication can be a tough business. The winning percentage is probably lower than a good professional baseball player’s batting average; but one correct prediction can go a long way. Just ask Hayman Capital Management principal Kyle Bass “Why Predictions Fail.”

“Annual Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit”

Entertainment and finance have merged with cable shows, Social Media and smart phones sharing predictions 24/7/365. In order to spark debate about topics, such as “Why Things Fail,” Vanity Fair has invited Mr. Bass, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell to its October 19th and 20th summit in San Francisco. Of course, Mr. Bass is an expert at why the global banking system failed during the 2008 Sub-Prime Crisis.

During this crisis, global Capitalists warned everyone that immediate bailouts were necessary to save the Too Big to Fail banks. For what would anyone do without JP Morgan, Citibank, Bank of America or Wells Fargo? The entire system would seize up faster than a Formula One race car without motor oil.

“Why Japan Will Fail by Mr. Bass”

Unfortunately, not all of Mr. Bass’ predictions have turned out as rosy as the United States one. Since 2010, Kyle Bass has been predicting the collapse of the Japanese economy. As of 2016, the Japanese economy was still one of the strongest in the world. So, what went wrong?

Kyle Bass also defended General Motors when it was facing lawsuits over faulty air bags and power steering. Mr. Bass decided to “blame the victims.” This questionable behavior has even led to a lawsuit by the American Sniper widow.

“Don’t Cry for Bass, Argentina”

When Argentina came a’knocking on Kyle Bass’ door, he supported their decision to default on its debt for the second time in 13 years. American bankers fumed over this traitor. Argentina has struggled and its economy is floundering.

So why is Kyle Bass, so popular? In the 24/7/365 “cookie-cutter” infotainment media world, the contrarian view is quite valuable. Mr. Bass avoids the “crowded trade” that is modern infotainment.  See just why this happens to be the truth on UsefulStooges, through the following link: https://usefulstooges.com/2015/08/24/kyle-bass-the-frantic-investments-of-a-desperate-gambler/.

An Anonymous Contributor Defaces the Wikipedia Page of the host of The Trend show, Larry Madowo

With the onset of the internet, marketing and advertising trends have changed a lot. The internet is growing at a fast pace, and this growth has opened different unique avenues for high profile individuals, brands and businesses to market their products and services. Wikipedia is a heavily used website; in fact, it is the seventh most visited website in the world.

The free online encyclopedia is based on a model of openly editable content. It does not rely on content writers to create posts but relies on anonymous volunteer Wikipedia writers who create content without pay. Anyone with internet connection is able to add or update a Wikipedia page freely. However, there are exceptions e.g. in cases where copyright restrictions limit contributors from editing.

In May 2014, Ed Summers created a Twitter account dubbed CongressEdits. The automated Twitter account tracks all changes made to Wikipedia content originating from IP addresses that are within the ranges allotted to the U.S. Congress. CongressEdits has led to the creation of similar accounts around the globe.

On August 30, 2016, NTV’s anchor Larry Madowo woke up to find a fresh biography on his Wikipedia page. The new biography was edited to insinuate that Larry was a politician born in 1889, and he attempted a coup in Kisumu to take over as head of The Girl Guide Movement. The edited version of the page was shared on Twitter, and Larry Madowo loved it. He stated that: “Someone defaced my Wikipedia page, and it is awesome.”

The hilarious version that included the Wiki edits describes the host of The Trend show as:

“Kenyan politician who was the leader of the Kazi Party.”

The anonymous Wikipedia editors go on to describe Mr. Madowo as the

“Chancellor of Kenya from 1933 to 1945, and leader of Kazi Kenya from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Kazi Kenya, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and was a central figure of the Holocaust.”

The anonymous contributor further adds to the Wikipedia revisions:

“He moved to Kenya in 1913 and was decorated during his service in the Girl Scout in World War I, selling cookies. He joined the Kenyan Workers’ Party, the precursor of the Kazi, in 1919 and became the leader of the Kazi in 1921. In 1923, he attempted a coup in Kisumu to seize power of the Girl Guide Movement.”

“Larry Madowo is currently a news anchor, with suspicions that he might be a vampire.”

The contributor finishes.

An International Trading Solution From Jim Hunt and VTA Publications: One Million Dollars From One Thousand

VTA Publications is a group that caters to some 1,000+ clients across the globe. The services they provide have to do with finances. Specifically, Wall Street Trading. The Stock Market. Through a proprietary solution, there are methods that can be taught which are designed to regularly yield quantifiably on investment. To that end, VTA Publications regularly publishes a variety of financial and economic non-fiction. Additionally, this group provides booking services for seminars and special events. As a provider of long-distance learning, VTA Publications definitely has a ubiquity of recommendable qualities underneath its infrastructure. Part of the reason for this strong underbody is Jim Hunt, a financial advisor and trader who has developed a method that can reportedly turn a thousand dollars into a million using just ten trades.

Jim Hunt works with VTA, and would be the first to admit that his system isn’t nearly so complicated and spurious, or ambitious, as it may seem offhand. It’s just compounding. The goal with the trading is to double investment with each trade. Ergo $1,000 becomes $2,000, becomes $4,000, then $8,000, $16,000, $32,000, $64,000, $128,000, $256,000, $512,000 and finally $1,024,000. The key lies in finding which stocks should be traded, and this is where Jim Hunt’s revolutionary method comes in. He plans to use it to make his mother’s $1,000 expand into $1,000,000. Furthermore, his idea is to get the whole thing on YouTube.com so it can be visually demonstrated.

One of the advantages of Hunt and VTA’s financial materials is ease of use. All of them have been put together with a specific ideal of simplicity in mind. The common man needs to be able to invest his money accordingly, and use it to increase his own standing as a citizen. To this end, Jim has even been called sort of a whistle-blower for the every-man; and it makes sense: when a person can turn moneymaking into a simple process, that goes a long way toward casting off the binds of poverty. Many are going to be watching Hunt’s YouTube.com channel expectantly, and should he pull off what he claims, it may just be historic.  Follow Jim’s Twitter for more information as well.
