Not only does Geoff Cone’s firm focus on this, but is the only firm in New Zealand to specialize in just this type of law practice.

With such an extensive education and knowledge of tax and trust law, it may be in ones best interest to take Geoff Cone’s opinions. Recently, Geoff Cone has shared his point of view on New Zealand and its foreign trusts. Geoff has openly communicated that New Zealand is not a “tax haven” and will not be considered one in the near future. Geoff suggests that in order for New Zealand to ever meet the qualifications of being a tax haven, there would have to be many changes in both laws and business. Laws involving information exchange between governments would have to become stronger and the banking industry would have to become moe secure and secretive. Although Geoff does not believe New Zealand is a tax haven, he does share that New Zealand is making progress in this area. The rules placed in this area and the way foreign trusts are handled make a great starting point. This gives New Zealand the ability to create and hold up tax exchange agreements with many other countries. So even if New Zealand is not a tax haven, it is making progress and is building a great reputation in this field of business.

Talk Fusion is having a banner year in 2016 and for good reason: they are always working around the clock.

Emily McClure Puts Wen by Chaz to the Test

Wen, is a hair care cleansing system developed by Chaz Dean, a renown stylist. Many celebrities have touted the brand as a sensation. It’s a conditioning shampoo that works thoroughly cleansing hair from root to end and it doesn’t have to lather. That’s how powerful and effective this brand is. It comes in a pump and looks a lot like a light foam. The appearance doesn’t do it justice. It also comes in some beautiful natural fragrances that are also functional. In this case, the Fig formula was the choice of the day for Emily to review.

Emily McClure is a professional hairstylist. She’s also a blogger and did a review post on WEN hair cleansing system for Bustle Magazine. Here was her process and results. First, it’s important to note that she has fine hair with a tendency to an oily scalp. She also uses a lot of hair styling product so that her curls stay up and happy.

She began the process by reading the instructions. At first, she thought it a bit much to use 13 or so pumps for shoulder-length hair. But, she followed faithfully. She immediately noticed one that that made her very happy. The amount of breakage was significantly lower. She could see that there were far less broken hairs in the tub.

Then the clean she felt, despite the lack of lather was amazing. As the days went by she noticed that her curls were not as perky for as long as normal. But, this was the adjustment period for her hair and the fact that her styling product, possibly for the first-time-ever was stripped clean from the hair so thoroughly that this was the cause. There was no residue, just virgin hair.

The bottom line is that it’s definitely worth the wait. Wen is Sephora available and can also be purchased online via

Understanding the Ancient Wisdom of Kabbalah

The concept of Kabbalah has been hidden for millenniums and as a result, it has been clouded in confusion, misrepresentation, and myth. It has been considered a secret teaching which tries to hide something from the people learning it. Kabbalah is the teaching of the secret. This means that kabbalists teach students to open up in order to realize the secret.
Life is filled with mysteries like: What is life? What is existence? What is love? How do they exist? What is the soul, the inner person? These mysteries are experienced every time and the more you gaze upon their depths, the complex their understanding becomes. Kabbalah plunges into these secrets of life and unveils their depths into the open. It offers parable, metaphor and understanding to the mysteries of life. It encourages and guides us to use the Kabbalah principles and wisdom for healing and growth in our daily lives.

The essence of the Kabbalah wisdom is that there is an inner, comprehensive force or “the Creator” that controls everything in real life. All the world’s forces come from this force. Some of these forces are common to us while others of a higher level remain mysterious to us. The best way to understand the Kabbalah wisdom is to learn it. So where can you learn authentic Kabbalah?

The Kabbalah Centre is an international non-profit organization that provides courses on the Kabbalistic teachings and Zohar. The Centre provides its students with wisdom and the tools that can help in improving their lives. Learning is done at their regional and city-based centers and online through lectures, books, downloads and prayer services.

The Kabbalah Centre’s technique of teaching is to orient students with methods that do not require a previous understanding of Jewish or Hebrew texts. The Centre views the religious and spiritual beliefs as merely specific branches of universal wisdom. As a result of this belief, The Kabbalah Centre presents itself as a supplement to religion as opposed to an alternative to it. One should be concerned with their relationship with the nature of God rather than God himself as he is beyond understanding.

Finding Inmates Through Their Voice: Investigator 4.0

Investigator 4.0 by Securus Technologies makes it possible to identify a criminal by his voice. Voices have a quality to them which is as unique as a fingerprint. Just like there are no two fingerprints alike, there are no two voices alike. The differences can be hard to determine, however; and that’s where technology comes in. The right kind of computational software can analyze a voice for similarities and identify said voice being used in disparate locations. Even criminals that try to hide their voices can be foiled by a computer that is looking for characteristics which can’t be consciously downplayed or ignored.


Securus Technologies provides communications solutions for inmates of over 2,600 correctional facilities. In total, Securus caters to some 3,450 public safety institutions, correctional facilities, and law enforcement agencies. Additionally, they deal with 1.2 million inmates on a regular basis. Those inmates often communicate with individuals who are not incarcerated. Despite such a ubiquitous prison system, organized crime in America often deals with the incarcerated. Sometimes, for example, the leader of a criminal organization will be incarcerated and operations from that criminal enterprise don’t cease. Why? They are being conducted from the inside. This can be done through a variety of legal visitations and telephone conversations. With Investigator 4.0 by Securus subsidiary JLG Technologies, it’s easier than ever to identify who may be coming or going as a visitor at a prison. Their voice can be matched against other criminal voices whose phone calls have been recorded. This makes it easier to arrest criminals involved in hidden activity, and curb the tide of criminal behavior that is conducted from within a given facility.

Jose Manuel Gonzalez; Politics is Important

Jose Manuel Gonzalez, an agronomic entrepreneur, was the leader of FEDECAMARAS and is the current deputy of Guarico State National Assembly. He gives us two qualities in one person. Jose Manuel Gonzales has perfect experience from two complementary areas. He is an active business person borrowed into politics.

Agriculture, like three remaining sectors, is in a waiting situation. The country stopped producing 500,000 tons of rice. Only 300,000 tons of maize are produced annually. However, the country does not have enough foreign exchange for imports. This situation has condemned to a roller-coaster type of supply system where anyone guarantees nothing. We do not counter either with spare parts and supplies, the little that achieved is unsustainable.

Since the assembly tries to comprehend the situation in agriculture, it has failed to implement necessary policies to attain sustainability. It has always been an unsuccessful management. A closed-door state pointing its weaknesses and flaws, but turns a deaf ear to development. Jose have always urged that things will be better with proper understanding and cooperation among the citizens and government. They continue to loot public funds by overpricing imports. They have made it cheap to steal government money, overbilling citizens, and the remaining money goes to unsustainable imports. Such distortions are the culprits that smuggle bi-national business. If you remove these impurities from the government, Guarico State will be a better place to live.

Insecurity affects the outcome of production in any producing state. This factor is well understood in agriculture. The state of security in Giarico is poor. Numerous farmers are paying criminal gangs to have their products sold in the markets. There are more than 20 kidnappings every week. Carjacking has become rampant. There is no municipality in Guarico State where the situation is different. The general government is spending more money on imports that providing the farmers with a conducive environment to conduct productivity and business. The money paid to criminal gangs can be used in production. The situation will not grow any better even if the government increases on imports. The shortage of foreign exchange is a clear indication that the food situation may prevail longer than expected.
