Wearing a tie on daily basis for someone of his taste may seem impossible but mark wore one for a whole year. When he was asked the motivation behind his goal he said, “I wanted to signal to the universe that 2012 was a serious year for Facebook.

I wanted to signal that Facebook was taking things serious, and it was a viable investment.”

Top 10 Shocking Mistakes Donald Trump Has Made In His Career /top-10-shocking-mistakes-donald-trump-has-made-in-his-career/people /top-10-shocking-mistakes-donald-trump-has-made-in-his-career/people#comments Sun, 24 Aug 2014 09:20:02 +0000 /?p=4102 Born on 14th June 1946, Donald trump is an American investor, television personality, author and a business magnate. He is also the President and chairman of Trump entertainment resort and the Trump Organization. His outspoken manner, extravagant lifestyle, and his role on the reality TV show The Apprentice have made him ranked no. 17 in 2011 Forbes Celebrities 100 list. Unfortunately, Trump thinks shittiness is synonymous to being rich. He rants racist comments, and tells people they are lucky that he did not rip them off harder. Here are the top 10 worst mistakes Trump has made in his career. Check them out.

10. He Has Ties To Organized Crime

He Has Ties To Organized CrimeDavid Sater, the son of the infamous Russian Mobster and CEO of Bayrock Group, is Trump’s royal partner in hotel and condo deals. In 2000, Sater was named a co-conspirator in a more than $40 million fraud case that resulted in the conviction of 19 mobsters, and 19 guilty pleas from the Gambino crime family and Russian Mafia.

9. Be Inconstant

Donald Trump Be InconstantIs Trump going to be running for the presidency or not? We don’t know. He says he can’t decide until after the coming season of his TV show, thus insinuating that his show is more significant than the US presidency. In the last three campaigns, 2008, 2004, and 2000, Trump purported to be running for the US presidency but in each case, it turned out to be a commercial for something else. This is despite that fact that the first principle of winning presidency we can learn from great Americans such as Ronald Reagan, the Bushes, Jimmie Carter, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton is that one has to commit to the goal after announcing it. They all said, “Constancy of purpose is the key to success.”

8. Pander to The Lowest Common Denominator

The Lowest Common DenominatorBuy Picking up an issue such as Barrack Obama Nationality, which no serious candidate or journal considers significant, Donald is appealing to the racist fringe of the republicans. Therefore, rendering himself prone to the taunts such as comedian Andy Borowitz suggestion that D. Trump is dogged by rumors that his hair is not from the US. Due to his racist taunts, serious minded and patriotic republicans look at trump with dismay.

7. Relying On Publicity Stunts

Relying On Publicity StuntsTrump fanfare about sending investigators to Hawaii to investigate Birther issue, which has already been exhaustively investigated by the press for years, comes along as being less about shedding light on the issue, and more about creating buzz for his candidacy. Such activities can generate negative publicity for his him while undermining trust and candidacy.

6. Leaving His Area Of Expertise

Leaving His Area Of ExpertiseLet us be clear here, Just because trump is a real estate tycoon does not make him an expert on mortgages. Maybe he should leave the mortgages to likes of Wells Fargo, Distilling to Grey, and policy making to White House. If you make all of your money from one investment opportunity, chances are you will not have the industry expertise to survive when you branch out into foreign policy. Think of it as an office supply firm opening a bakery next to the printers section. Maybe trump should keep within his area of expertise. He will realize the highest growth potential there.

9. The Dude Paid Bank For Kim’s Engagement Ring

News. “While growing up, Kim always had a passion for rings. And when Kris came in, he was aware of this but he wanted to make his decision.

Top 10 Most Annoying Things About Kardashians You Don’t Know /top-10-most-annoying-things-about-kardashians-you-dont-know/relationship /top-10-most-annoying-things-about-kardashians-you-dont-know/relationship#comments Fri, 22 Aug 2014 08:25:24 +0000 /?p=4082 The E! Network, early this week, agreed to renew Kardashian’s reality TV series, “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” for 3 more seasons. The deal is rumored to be worth an estimated $40 million, making it the largest and most profitable deal in the history of reality TV shows. Winning this deal is an additional reason the Kardashians are the most annoying and hated family on earth. Sadly, they will be on TV screens irritating viewers for another 3 years. From Khloe’s big feet and mouth to Kim’s fake wedding publicity, let us examine top ten annoying things about the Kardashians. Here is the countdown;

10. Scott Disick Is A Proud Weasel

Scott Disick Is A Proud WeaselDelete the “Si” from his 2nd name, and that is what Disick is. Despised by everyone, including members of his family who view him as a loser, Kourtney’s husband is a supercilious, pompous D-list celebrity. The sole reason he is famous is because he is featured on the show due to his marrying a Kardashian. To make matters worse, he has the guts to brag constantly about how wealth he is, flaunting his Miami and Rolls Royce Vice-like clothing in people’s eyes. He is unemployed and still thinks he is the hottest thing since the microwave.

9. Short Term Public Relationships

Short Term Public RelationshipsAs of to-date, Kardashians have dated almost every celebrity in the planet. Their affairs always make top headlines, but rarely last more than a week or a couple of months. For instance, Kim is notorious for jumping from one male celebrity to another in just a snap of a finger. She has dated Miles Austin, NFL stars Reggie Bush, R$B singer Ray J. and of course you cannot forget her seventy-two days marriage to Kris Humphries, an NBA player. She is currently rumored to be dating K. West, but we all know the relationship will not last till summer.

8. Khloe Kardashian And Kris Jenner Are Kim’s Wannabes

Khloe Kardashian And Kris JennerWe already have 1 Kim Kardashian, and we do not need 2 more. Kim’s sister and mother try their best to outshine her, and force themselves to the spotlight. Recently, in honor of her son’s twenty-fifth birthday, Jenner posted a photo of her body semi-naked during her pregnancy with Rob. This nude pregnant photo came just days after Kim tweeted a topless photo of herself. Further, the 56 years old mum is not shy of putting on clothes that look like they were snatched from Kim’s closet. Her late Endorsements, TV appearances, and breast enhancements show how desperate she is of the attention her daughter is receiving across the globe. Similarly, Kholoe also tries very hard to impersonate Kim. Since she appears to copy all that Kim does, do not be surprised if you find yourself watching a six tape of her and Lamar soon.

7. Bruce Jenner Is Weird And Wimpy

Bruce Jenner Is Weird And WimpyBruce Jenner, grandfather of Kholoe, Kim, Rob Kardashian and Kourtney, is today a shadow of her former magnificent self. He lacks the confidence and courage that saw him scoop the medal for decathlon in Montreal 1976 Summer Olympics. In “Keeping up with the Kardashians” he is overruled by women on the show, and rarely has the final say or word on matters. Both his daughter and step-daughters disrespect him, and his wife Kris Jenner controls him.

6. They Are Stuck Up, Rich And FamousThey Are Rich And Famous

Ordinary people wake up each morning, head to work, and work from 9 to 6. However, Kardashians do not even know what work means. They arise each day, and they are given millions of dollars for allowing cameras to follow them around while they are buying clothes, rolling around in luxury cars, and going to clubs. They are spoilt and expect the world to revolve around them. They will do almost everything to gain fame like pose for nude magazine covers, date old men with billions, and hold TV wedding specials. It is too sad that Kylie and Kendall Jenner are following up on their sisters, driving around in range rover sports and generating much publicity using their jewelry lines.

If Jose Aldo wishes to stride up to 55 and fight Pettis, Dana white is set for it. However, J. Aldo would have to drop his current title to do so.

But if he does not like being at 55, he can move back and compete for the title again.” “I am not sure that is what he wants,” White added. “I mean we have never, and we have not talked about it, but if it were to happen that would be real fun.”

8. Dana Is Appalled With How Julianna Pena’s Knee Injury Happened

Julianna Pena’On Wednesday evening, Dana tweeted that Julianna Pena should leave her current camp Sikjitsu. During the Pre-fight scrum, Dana explained why Pena’s injury is the most tragic thing he has ever heard off. He said, “It is the worst injury I have ever heard off in UFC 169. These types of injuries happen in football.” He said, “Apparently this is what transpired; she just won the Ultimate fighter trophy, she was ranked #10 across the globe, and she was in the gym training, while one of her partners, a man, came saying to her, “You are wearing the Ultimate Fighter shirt. We are scared.” He jumped on to her, started cracking her neck, she fell on her knee and it blew out. “It’s the most disgusting this I have heard in my life, “Said Dana white. “For about a year or one and a half she will be out of the game.” I advised her to vacate that disgusting gym and go somewhere with new training partners, new coaches, whatever.

6. Roy Nelson And D. White Have Applied For The NSAC Executive Director Position

Roy Nelson And D. WhiteD. White and Nelson rarely see eye to eye on most things. Dana’s reaction on learning that UFC Heavyweight Roy Nelson had applied for Keith Kizer’s position as executive director at the NSAC was very brief. “I mean what is there to say about that? It is just it, I guess it is Roy seeking some attention.”

Top 10 Things You Should Know About Mark Zuckerberg /top-10-things-you-should-know-about-mark-zuckerberg/people /top-10-things-you-should-know-about-mark-zuckerberg/people#comments Wed, 20 Aug 2014 07:25:29 +0000 /?p=4063 Born on May 14th, 1984, Zuckerberg is a philanthropist, internet guru, computer programmer, and entrepreneur. He co-founded Facebook when he was still a teenager. He inspired one of every seven people on the planet to use his social media. Here are top 10 things you should know about Mark Zuckerberg.

10. He Spent Over A year Eating Only Meat He Killed Himself

Mark Zuckerberg Eat MeatZuckerberg normally sets himself self-improvement goals each year. His goal in 2011 was to eat only meat he had killed himself. The idea behind this goal was to enable him to move more towards Vegetarianism. He said, I feel blessed that I have such an awesome life. I like consuming meat, and prior to this year I ate it almost daily.” He said. “in order to show how grateful I am, I plan to be eating only meat I have killed myself. This will help me connect more with the food I consume, and the animals that give up their life so that I can eat them.”

9. He Designed His Wife’s Wedding Ring

Designed His Wife’s Wedding RingMark himself designed his wife’s wedding ring, which is a ruby endowed with diamond on both sides. However, the rings has ever since been a strange target of criticism, with Daily Mail criticizing the size of the germ, and stating that it is not anywhere close to what a woman would expect from a billionaire.

8. Fear Of Public Speaking

Fear Of Public SpeakingIt has been stated that Mark has a deep fear of public speaking or at a minimum he was not great at it. For instance, does any of you recall the Wall street Journal D8 conference held back in June 2010? Mark floundered throughout the entire interview. Well, we do not intend to knock mark down; some individuals just seem to have that charisma where they can become a rock star when addressing a crowd. However, the problem is that Mark was just too scared of having to sit and speak to a group of people. If you don’t agree with this, then fast forward to July 2011, although Mark did dramatically better than he had in the 2010, a lot remained to be desired in respect to his public speaking skills. During the speech, which announced Facebook collaboration with Skype, Mark was materially poor compared to his colleague from Skype. However, we noticed more improvement while he was on Charlie Rose in Nov of the same year.

7. He Says He’s Not That Interested In Money

Mark Zuckerberg Is Not Interested In MoneyThis is a popular fact, but one that continues to astonish. In almost all his interview, Zuckerberg has stated that his interest is not in accumulating wealth but in connecting the world. He said, “We make money not to make money, but to offer quality products to the world.” “Simply put,” he said, “We do not offer services to make money, we make money to allow us to provide better services to the world.” Mark said the same in the firms S-A filing to go public. To further show his strong disassociation with wealth, Mark has signed the giving pledge. This is a promise by him to donate 50% of his wealth to charity and humanitarian causes during his life or after his death. He joined the list of his fellow billionaires Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey and Mark Cuban. To date, 122 billionaires have signed the pledge.

6. He Commenced With Facemash

Commenced With FacemashWhile mark was still a student at Harvard university, he designed a website called Facemash. The website requested users to vote and judge attractiveness of other students on the basis of their directory photos. Unfortunately, the site did not go well with the majority of the student and the administration, and it was pulled down after a short time. Later on Feb 4th, 2004, Mark launched The Facebook.com, a social media platform that enabled users to create basic profiles. Initially, Facebook was supposed to be a networking website for University students but it was thrown open for the general public on 2006.

Top 10 Trait To learn From John D. Rockefeller – The Richest Man Who Ever Lived /top-10-trait-to-learn-from-john-d-rockefeller-the-richest-man-who-ever-lived/reviews /top-10-trait-to-learn-from-john-d-rockefeller-the-richest-man-who-ever-lived/reviews#comments Tue, 19 Aug 2014 06:53:57 +0000 /?p=3892 John D Rockefeller is famous as the wealthiest man who ever lived on earth. He owned the world’s largest oil supply company called standard Oil, which was later broken up by the American government to form Chevron Conoco, Amoco and Exxon mobile. He was the first man ever to accumulate wealth amounting to 1 billion US dollars. You can rightfully argue that John paved the way for modern billionaires. He inspired the universe and proved that accumulating billion worth of wealth was an achievable target. Luckily for you, we had done the homework and gathered the top 10 John D. Rockefeller traits that led him to such mind blowing success. Just check them out, and you will have all it takes to make billions.John D. Rockefeller

10. Make Your Life Fun In Every Area

Of course, you must have heard it being said that attitude is everything when it comes to success, and according to Rockefeller this is true. He says, “Your look on life is important, you should characterize our life with pleasure in order to always have a clear mind that can gear you toward success.” In simple terms, people who wake up every day and fill themselves with positivity are more likely to overcome barriers that come between them and success than negative minded people. He said, “I cannot think of something more pleasurable than a life devoted to pleasure.”

9. It Is Much Easier To Become Successful With The Help Of Others

He said, “I would rather have a mere 1% of a 100 individuals than to have 100% of my personal effort.” In the modern world, people worry too much about their pride that they do not want to seek help from others. According to Rockefeller, you will have to swallow your pride and seek help when you need it. He says, “It is easy to make it to the top of the hill called success when you have somebody running along with your to push you up whenever you stumble. You only have a limited amount of energy by yourself each day, and you can only spend such much.” Simply put, learn to delegate your tasks and spend your limited energy on the most serious aspects of your business.

8. Create Your Own Path

Rockefeller once said, “If you want to attain success, strive out on new paths rather than travel on the already worn out paths of accepted success.” Yes, this is the cold reality of things, if you ever wish and dream of achieving real success in life, then you will have to move out and create your own path. You will have to be the 1st travelling down on your set path.

7. What Do You Want Out Of Life?

Rockefeller stated, “Singleness of purpose is one of the main essentials for success in life, no matter what maybe one’s aim.” You will never attain success if you do not define what it means to be successful to you. He said, “If you do not have a purpose, then your body will be pulled in every possible direction, and you will never be pinpointed towards a single goal.”

6. He Had A Knack For Numbers

Another success tip you can learn from D. Rockefeller is sharpness with numbers. Immediately after high school, he attended a 10 weeks business course on bookkeeping. His ability with numbers was exceptional. Later he said, “For any idea to succeed, number must be right.” Mr. Rockefeller used nothing but numbers to amass such great heights of wealth. “I charted my course using figures, nothing more than this.” He said.
