According to recent reports, the Russian economy is experiencing problems. Alexei Beltyukov has made suggestions that he believes can help the Russian economy bounce back. Beltyukov is the advisor of the Skolkovo Foundation, a government endorsed organization. It promotes business, technology, and innovation in Russia.
The Russian economy had a sharp decline even before the Crimean standoff. Many investors pulled their money out of Russia. Alexei Ulyukov, Russia’s Economy Minister announced that the country had a growth of 0.8 percent during the first quarter of the year. It was minimal considering the growth projections were set at 2.5 percent. The start of the Ukrainian conflict shook the Russian markets. In March 2014, billions in market capitalization were wiped out with the main stock index dropping by 10 percent. Additionally, the cost of imports increased after the ruble lost against the dollar by 9 percent.
Xrepublic points out that Russia’s economy slowed for a fourth consecutive year in 2013. The decline was as a result of a fall in consumer spending as well as a weakening investment and demand for energy. The Crimean tensions added to the list of things that contributed to the economic slowdown. As a result, capital and entrepreneurial talent left the country.
However, all is not lost. Alexei Beltyukov notes that for Russia to restore itself, it needs to prioritize its entrepreneurs. Therefore, the Russian government has to set up systems that support small business along with entrepreneurs. Alexei Beltyukov is one of Skolkovo Foundation’s founding fathers. The Skolkovo Foundation was established in 2010. It was created with the objective of supporting small business owners and steer in a new age of entrepreneurship.
The foundation provides consultation on business strategies, tax breaks for the business community in Russia, and technological incubation. These services have helped many Russian entrepreneurs. Most importantly, the foundation gives grant money to entrepreneurs that invest in new ventures. To date, over 13,000 jobs have been created through the assistance provided by the Skolkovo Foundation. It is committed to having a broader economic growth in Russia. Alexei Beltyukov believes Russia can benefit more from entrepreneurship.

Educational advocacy has long been the one thing that people know about Eric Pulier, and he has really impressed me because he is helping people get resources that make their lives easier. He has done a lot of educational advocacy, and I have seen the educational tools she has helped bring to the public with my own two eyes. He was one of the first people to work on assistive technology that is good for kids with disabilities, and he put so much of that in the schools that people are still using it to this day.
It is also important for these people to remember that they are going to get even more from Eric Pulier in the future as he helps people with disabilities and chronic illnesses. Every person who challenged with an illness and something of the sort will need to make sure that they are turning to better technology, and they need to see what it is that Eric Pulier is working on next. He is a brilliant technician who has been able to change the lives of a lot of people, and he is working with the X Prize committee to bring out more good technology for the people of the world.
The kids who are in the schools today are seeing new technology come out from work on things like spaceships, and that is what is making their lives easier. I am so grateful for Eric Pulier and his desire to pull technology into the schools.
There are a lot of people benefiting from this technology, and I know it because I am one of them. I teach kids every day that are using the same basic technology that Eric Pulier came up with when he started his first foundation at People Doing Things. He then started work with Starbright World, and we still do something like that with kids today so they can talk to other kids who having problems with their health. I have to see it every day, and I am glad that Pulier was willing to fight for kids to get this kind of help.

Venezuelan Defense Minister Vladamir Padrino Lopez spoke in favor of a series of military exercises that are scheduled to take place in Venezuela Saturday, May 22.
“Venezuela is threatened,” Padrino Lopez said. “This action is strategic and is the largest military exercise in our country’s history.”
President Nicolas Maduro announced the plan for the operation last weekend. Madura accused the U.S. of sending spy planes into Venezuela’s airspace. Political tension within the country has been on the rise in recent months as Venezuela’s economy continues to sprint toward a complete collapse. The crime rate has skyrocketed since the government began to ration out food, utility services, and other necessities such as toilet paper, soap, and even diapers.
Economic expert Adrian Jose Velasquez Figueroa predict that Venezuela’s inflation rate will continue to rise to more than 700 percent by the end of 2016.
Dateas researcher Rocio San Miguel made a grim statement concerning the current military mobilization in Venezuela.
“The government is looking to create victims,” San Miguel said. “The government wants to victimize the international community just as it has its citizens. They want to create a distraction, and there is no better way to do it than to use the military.”
Bernardo Chua, a businessman from the Philippines, has come a long way since starting out in his career. He has worked closely with two major businesses: Gano Excel in the past and now the largely successful marketing company, Organo Gold. He and his company, which he started in 2008, have risen to fame in the last few years and were granted several honors and awards in early 2015.
Chua’s company Organo Gold mainly sells tea, coffee, vitamins, and other personal care products. The main difference between his company and others is that his products contain Ganoderma Lucidum. This is a mushroom found in Asia that has anti-oxidant and other healing properties. According to researchers, it may even be helpful for treating some types of cancer. By selling his products with Ganoderma in them, Chua has been working to increase awareness of this herb in the West.
LinkedIn tells us Chua has many branches of his company open in over 35 different parts of the world, including the Philippines, the USA, Canada, Germany, Greece, and many others. His most recent opening took place in Turkey, which is the country credited for the establishment of the world’s first coffee house. According to Chua’s Facebook , this new branch is beneficial to the company as a whole because it brings the Asian, African, and European branches together.
Organo Gold is one of the first companies to find success in selling Ganoderma products outside of Asia. In 2015, the company won two People’s Choice Awards, while Chua himself and two of his coworkers also earned Dangal ng Bayan Awards. Chua’s award named him an “Outstanding Global Entrepreneur,” as his company is currently one of the fastest growing around the world. His hope is that Organo Gold will continue to grow over time and become a part of customers’ healthy lifestyles. Follow him on Twitter at @OGBernie.
