Covers.com: The One Stop Shot

 

I don’t know about you, but I like websites where they have everything on them at once. It just makes things a heck of a lot easier for myself and for others. I don’t have to have multiple tabs open or multiple websites. I like knowing I can go to one website and get all of the information I need, no matter what that information is or what it requires. That is how college football bettors like it, and that is why they go to Covers.com. They know they will have everything they need on one website. This is a website that was built with the people in mind.

 

They wanted people to feel comfortable using it and have it be easy to use. In order to be taken seriously, they knew they had to have experts on the website. After all, no one wants to take college football predictions, point spreads, or covers from the average sports fan.  They have watched a lot of football and they know certain things that other people might not know or might have overlooked while scouting and betting on a game.

 

They also knew they wanted to add videos to their website. Everyone loves to watch a quick video and really dive right into it and hear straight from someone how they feel about a game and why they made the prediction they made. It is very reassuring and very fun to watch also, as you get to see them break it down from all angles and all aspects. They also wanted columns that would give them plenty of room to write about games and how they feel about them from many different angles.

Dick DeVos is Richard DeVos’ eldest son. Richard DeVos co-owns Amway Corporation with Jay Van Andel. The Amway Corporation sells its health, household, and personal care products through network sales. Amway’s dealers recruit second level distributors, who in turn recruit next tier dealers with the final dealers being the customers.

 

DeVos began his career at Amway Corporation in 1974. Here, he held various positions in different company’s departments. In 1984, Amway named DeVos as its Vice President in 18 countries to probably gain extensive experience in international investment. Leveraging his immense knowledge in global-level investments, Dick DeVos left Amway Corporation in 1989 to start a new venture, The Windquest Group.

 

In 1991, Dick DeVos’ father, Richard DeVos acquired the Orlando Magic Basketball and appointed DeVos as its manager. While serving as the director of National Basket Association, Dick DeVos would also manage the operations of the Windquest Group. However, two years later, in 1993, Dick DeVos succeeded his father as Amway’s president. With an extensive experience in management, DeVos initiated the restructuring of Amway Corporation in 2000.

Under the umbrella company, the Alticor Corporation, Amway expanded its addressable market to over 50 countries and territories in six continents.

 

In 2002, Dick DeVos stepped down as Alticor’s president to concentrate on his private business venture, the Windquest Group, and political causes. With a distinguished track record in business leadership, Dick DeVos decided to contend for the governorship in Michigan State on the Republican ticket. By then, DeVos was considered as the wealthiest Republican to vie for the governorship in the State of Michigan. Although wealth seems instrumental in political campaigns, in DeVos’ case, money proved to be of little help. Unfortunately, Jennifer Granholm, the Republican, won the election by a 14 point margin.

George Soros – A Favorite Target of Conservative Media Attacks

It’s not hard to figure out what it is about George Soros that attracts the ire of the conservative media pundits. Soros wasn’t born wealthy, instead he immigrated alone to England in 1956, where he sought an education. He attended the prestigious London School of Economics, where be developed a passion for finance. After completing his studies, he moved to New York, where he earned his money on Wall Street. He championed anti-communist causes, donating large sums of money to efforts aimed at defeating several communist bloc governments in eastern Europe on Forbes. After the fall of the Soviet Union he began to turn his attention to liberal and anti-fascist causes at home in the US. All of these facts would seem to paint picture of a conservative media darling.

But it wasn’t until he donated to the presidential campaign of Barack Obama in 2008 that he earned the disdain of Fox News and the conservative radio clique.

In November, 2010, Fox News bloviator Glenn Beck aired a series of 3 one-hour programs in which he railed against George Soros. He accused the investor of being anti-semitic. He claimed that Soros was actively working to manipulate the markets in the US so that he could reap enormous profits, of controlling the liberal elite and the media. On his radio program, he went so far as to accuse Soros of collaboration with the Nazis. Of the then 13 year old George Soros, Beck said “Here’s a Jewish boy helping send the Jews to the death camps.” Soros and his family actually hid from the Nazis using documents forged by Soros’ father, and there has never been any indication that Soros’ or his family collaborated with the Nazis.

Beck may have been the voice of those statements, but the direction, and responsibility, no doubt can be traced back to the recently ousted Roger Ailes, as well as Rupert Murdoch. Beck’s program has been positioned by Fox as “infotainment.” That means Ailes and Murdoch would have been given a great deal of editorial control. Control which they wouldn’t be able to wield on a newscast without losing credibility. Despite the Fox stance that pundits such as Beck and Sean Hannity are offered as entertainment, their programs are often presented as news broadcasts, an image reinforced by those in the conservative media, who often quote them as if their opinions were actual facts.

Yet through all these baseless attacks, innuendos, and outright lies, George Soros remains positive and upbeat. He continues to donate to liberal causes and candidates.

It’s clear that Soros will continue to be a favorite target of the conservative media, but it’s equally clear that he will continue to rise above the despicable attacks on him by the fact-immune talking heads such as Glenn Beck. George Soros has taken to heart one of the single most important lessons one learns about social media: don’t feed the trolls.
