As a young man, Ted Bauman relocated to South Africa in order to pursue postgraduate degrees in History, as well as Economics. After garnering both degrees, Mr. Bauman became involved with South Africa’s nonprofit sector as an executive, working to secure housing for those living in low-income areas around the country. One of the most prominent initiatives that Ted Bauman was involved with, was Slum Dwellers International, which has helped millions of people around the world since its inception.

In 2008, he returned to the United States, immediately gaining employment with Habitat for Humanity, acting as Director of International Programs.

In order to bring his ideas to life, particularly dealing with topics that can become mundane to his audience, he often weaves in real-world examples in order to make the material more accessible. In order to ensure that he is giving his readership the most up-to-date material, he constantly immerses himself in the events of the day, searching for viable information pertaining to the topics that his readers are most concerned with. His emphasis on time management, and utilizing the most productive period of the day, are keys to his continued success despite career changes.


Stream Energy Focused on Philanthropy than Ever with the Launch of Stream Cares

Natural disasters, climate change, poverty, etc., are just but a few problems afflicting the world, and America is no exception. While governments grapple with such issues, it is becoming apparent that input from businesses and even individuals go a long way in assisting authorities to alleviate human suffering. Stream Energy’s philanthropic efforts demonstrate a company determined to make society conducive to everyone.

Stream Energy targets homeless people, the less fortunate veterans and their families. The Dallas-based firm, in collaboration with other like-minded firms, organizes fun activities for the homeless children of Dallas. Such events in addition to making the children feel loved are essential in extending both monetary support and basic needs to the less fortunate. The less fortunate Dallas-area veterans have a reason to smile as Stream Energy occasionally sponsors fun days for them and their families.

Hurricanes are not new to America, especially Texas. In fact, the state suffered one of its deadliest hurricanes in 2017—Hurricane Harvey. The state is home to thousands of Stream Energy’s clients and business associates. It made sense for the company, therefore, to be actively involved in both healing and rebuilding efforts meant to restore the Greater Houston area to its former state. Stream Energy started by donating $25,000 to the American Red Cross. The company then announced it was accepting donations on behalf of Red Cross and finally announced it would forgive its clients in the affected areas who would service their utility bills late than expected. The efforts portrayed Stream as an understanding partner, sticking with its clients through thick and thin.

Stream Energy announced the launch of Stream Cares, an entity that will be responsible for the firm’s philanthropic giving. The body is likely to consolidate Stream’s charitable activities, and America is yet to witness a more vibrant stream, regarding philanthropy.

More About Stream

The company was established in 2005 as a retail electricity firm. Its business model follows that of multi-level marketing firms, but Stream’s reward system is ingenious. The firm’s energy, wireless, protective, and home services are available in seven U.S states. As it embraces corporate social responsibility, Stream is likely to exponentially grow as Americans tend to associate more with charitable brands.


Can The Venezuelans State Of Guarico Be Saved By Jose Manuel Gonzalez

The Venezuelan state of Guarico has been beset by crime and unemployment for quite some time, and their assembly is finally changing their ways in light of recent economic conditions. Jose Manuel Gonzalez is a business owner from the region, and he is currently serving on the local assembly. This article explains how a change in government may make a change to the economic state of Guarico.

#1: Why Are Finances So Poor?

Jose blames much of the trouble on socialism used in the 21st Century. He looks upon people who have been politicians for some time, and he believes that poor politicians have not been punished as they should have. Jose works quite hard at his job as an assemblyman, but he cannot affect change alone. Politicians must take their jobs much more seriously.

#2: Hard Work Will Pay Off In The Community

Hard work if assemblymen such as Jose will pay off in the community, but there must be a solid plan for bringing commerce back to the Guarico state. There are quite a few people without jobs, and several youngsters have turned to crime. The rates of crime and unemployment are so high that the entire region must be redeveloped. The only way to save the people is with swift action in government meetings and assemblies.

#3: Jose Fears More Socialist Policies

Jose fears more socialist policies will bring more crime and poverty to his region. He is deeply-concerned about how food will be shipped to his state, and he wishes to see new businesses opened in the area to help grow and supply food. Guarico is quite dangerous today, but it may become a much better place to live when it has been improved with basic government programs. Shipping in food does not help the people when they may be growing food themselves.

Jose is a committed assemblyman who prefers to bring his people more jobs and less crime. He sees the problems in his community every day, and he wants to hold bad politicians accountable for the problems they created in Guarico with poor policy.
