Impersonation is a skill that takes a long time to learn. Many people have taken time to look and act like famous celebrities, with the most intriguing acts being that of the late Michael Jackson. Renowned and hailed as the king of pop, MJ, as he was widely known, had many followers. Some of these followers just enjoyed his music while others decided to make money out of his legacy. While the impersonation of MJ comes naturally to some people in terms of physical appearance, some have to undergo extensive surgery in order to resemble him. One example of a natural is Sergio Cortes.
This Spanish national comes across as MJ, not just in the way he looks, but also in the way he sings. He performs in Brazil under the support of Destiny Projects, an institution which focuses in identifying, nurturing and managing art. Cortes has created an artistic niche for himself with many people traveling from all walks of life just to see him performing. Those who have witnessed his skills can attest to the fact that he puts in a lot of time and effort to recreate and perform MJ’s songs, although his looks and vocal abilities make it a lot easier for him.
Watching Cortes on stage, one would think that it is MJ doing his act. He capitalized on these unique features in teenage years when people realized that he looked and sang a lot like the pop star. Since then, he has been hired to appear in many acts and concerts, with the most memorable being the tribute show in Madrid in 2012. During the event, he performed for two hours, showcasing the life and times of MJ through the star’s songs which he recreated.
Cortes stands out as the best MJ impersonator, not only because of how he looks and sings, but also because of how he dresses and dances while on stage. He has gained fame among lovers of the genre and has attracted people who want to meet an MJ impersonator. Needless to say, he has inspired many while advancing the legacy of the legendary musician. At least, for many who never got to meet the musician while he was still alive, they can get a taste of what he used to offer.
Indeed, the love and passion Cortes has for MJ has inspired many to believe in the power of art, and has attracted a lot of support from different corners of the earth.

Ever since his service as the Director of the United States Mint, Phillip Diehl has offered innovative ideas and insight regarding our nation’s currency and how the American Dollar stacks up against our competitors, as well as the once popular gold standard.
Selected personally by former President Clinton in the 1990’s, Mr. Diehl has implemented the 50 states quarter program. Because of this unique idea of making currency distribution more interesting, many different forms of United States quarters with different engravings pertaining to each of the fifty states, as well as other designs representing many aspects of America’s rich history.
Phillip Diehl has recently issued advice about how the American people should effectively invest their money. Mr. Diehl and George Soros, a multimillionaire, a renowned businessman from Budapest, both concur that with the collapsing economies of the BRIC alliance (consisting of the countries of Brazil, Russia, China, and India) and other nations worldwide, all of the global currencies are risking more susceptible to volatility and instability. In the event of complete economic failure on a global scale, gold is a precious metal that always has and always will hold a universal standard of value. More of the United States Mint director’s insight and suggestions can be heard in a recent interview with the Entrepreneur Podcast Network.
A piece from the Jaws Youth Fund revealed that Hungarian businessman George Soros has withdrawn most of his investments in bank stocks and shares. In the past two years, he has gradually moved his funds from big banking into shares and stocks for oil mining companies. While this is a risky investment which requires a lot of money to initially take on, the payout has the potential to be exponential compared to what was invested to begin with.
Another piece of investment advice recommended by the director of the United States Mint is that Americans should invest in coins. They hold a more structured value, which is pre-determined by the US Mint based on weight and the composition of precious metals within certain coins. This is an especially more advisable monetary commitment, especially if you can’t afford to buy top-karat gold by the ounce.

The Human Rights Foundation was formed by Thor Halvorssen in 2005 to provide an independent body capable of working with oppressed people in the world, under the leadership of the Venezuelan film producer. Halvorssen has sought to establish one of the most impressive boards in the history of human rights activism to make sure the Human Rights Foundation provides the best options in helping those trapped in closed societies. The dictatorships of the world are being placed under threat by the campaigning completed by the Human Rights Foundation, which has recently been aiming to publicize how corrupt governments are keeping resources from the people they rule.
Thor Halvorssen has a long history of working in the realm of human rights activism, inspired by the problems members of his own family had in having their own human rights limited or denied. The Human Rights Foundation is only the latest in a long line of charitable organizations Halvorssen has worked for as he sought out the largest level of experience available to him. The Human Rights Foundation founder is now one of the best known and respected members of the activism community in the world.
There is much to admire in the history and life of Thor Halvorssen, particularly in the way the leader of the organization has led the activism industry.

Sanjay Shah found a way to combine his love of music with his love for his son Nikhil, who happens to have autism. As founder and CEO of Autism Rocks, Shah started a Go Fund Me fundraiser for his charity. All funds raised by this campaign go to the Autism Research Trust, of which Shah is a trustee, which in turn funds autism research at Cambridge University. These projects are not looking for a cure; they are investigating intervention programs that offer the greatest benefit to children with autism. This will help parents, like Sanjay Shah and his wife, understand how their autistic child is feeling and what he or she needs.
Shah came up with the idea for Autism Rocks while entertaining rapper Snoop Dogg at his Dubai home. He decided to invite wealthy friends and business associates to private concerts with big names from the music industry. Shah knew that people in London and Dubai wouldn’t mind donating to a worthy cause by buying a ticket to see Lenny Kravitz or Prince in an exclusive setting.
Autism Rocks is the latest endeavor in wealthy businessman Sanjay Shah’s illustrious career. Born in 1970, Shah is widely known as the founder and CEO of Solo Capital Partners, a private investment firm, however, after moving from London to Dubai, he says that he is semi-retired. After studying medicine at King’s College in the U.K., Shah decided that his real interest was accounting. After holding several jobs at prestigious trading firms, Shah, like so many others, found himself out of a job during the recession. However, his redundancy was a blessing in disguise, since it pushed Shah to open Solo Capital Partners, which made him a millionaire.
Currently, Shah is living in Dubai with his wife and three children. He’s said to have a net worth of $280 million, enough to provide his youngest son with all the therapy he needs, nevertheless, Sanjay Shah understands that other parents with an autistic child are not as fortunate. He’s made several personal donations, besides raising money for research, to help wherever it is needed the most.

When you get a dog, everything becomes clear that you need to pay close attention to what they eat. My dog isn’t too particular when it comes to what his food tastes like, but I have surely heard of dogs that have particular tastes. Usually, I recommend to the to try to buy premium foods for their dogs because premium brands employ people to taste test their foods before they find the perfect combination of high quality ingredients. I prefer to buy premium dog food because of the fact that the companies that make it know what they are doing, and they actually care about the food that they are making for dogs.
Premium Brands That You Can Trust
Purina is a well known brand, and they came up with a great food that they call Beneful. It is a combination of high quality and nutritious ingredients that every dog needs in their diet. These types of ingredients give your dog more energy to perform at its best, so you will have better walks, and your dog will have more energy because of the food it is eating. I found this article on the subject that is published by the Daily Herald. It talks about the types of procedures that high quality, premium brands have in place to keep their food a step above the rest. Beneful is one of the brands that I trust to feed to my dog. I love to see the package of Beneful because it sounds like something that my dog should be eating instead of the cheap foods that are shameful.
Beneful has a special blend of meats, vegetables and rice that they call Chopped Blends. It is sold in a plastic container, and it comes in 20 varieties. They even have real meats and real vegetables in their foods, unlike the cheap brands that have imitation products and meat flavoring. Beneful provides my dog with the nutrients that he needs to get up and go, and we go everywhere together. You can check out the article for yourself by going here.

Philip Diehl has had an interesting career. He is one of the very few people in American history whose resume notes “Director of the U.S. Mint” as previous work experience. In the present day, Diehl is acting as president of U.S. Money Reserve, one of the top providers of gold coins in the world. With such an interesting career history, Diehl makes a great talk show guest. Recently, he was asked to talk about gold coins on the EPN podcast network.
The popularity of investing in gold grew dramatically over the past ten years. Not all gold assets are the same. Yes, they do have to maintain a certain level of purity to be legitimate investment items. Gold coins are different from bullion and bars. Coins produced by the U.S. Mint are legal tender. A coin’s value is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, and this makes them appealing to investors.
According to prnewswire, Diehl points out his tenure at the U.S. Mint opened his eyes to the great value of precious metal coins. Under Diehl’s tenure, the U.S. Mint opened a host of distribution channels all throughout the world. Previously, the U.S. Mint dealt mostly with distribution channels exclusively in the United States. Meeting the strong demand for gold coins throughout the globe left Diehl with a better understanding of what buyers are interested in. He also knows how to logistically sell and move gold throughout numerous markets. Bringing such experience to U.S. Money Reserve definitely helps the company growth in the precious metals sales market.
U.S. Money Reserve is based in Austin, TX and has facilitated hundreds of thousands of gold, silver, and platinum coin sales. The research department puts a great deal of effort into acquiring only high quality coins for resale. Sales representatives work carefully with customers to make sure those customer by the coins best suited for their needs.
In the podcast, Diehl mentions he makes good customer service a guiding principle employees and executives should follow. In doing so, the company can meet its mission and help investors build up their portfolios.
