Yeonmi Park to Speak At The Ubben Lecture Series in DePauw University

According to a story that featured on DePauw University’s website, Yeonmi Park will give an Ubben Lecture On the 5th of October at the University. She will be 22 years old after celebrating her birthday the day before. Park will share her exceptional story about how she and her family luckily freed North Korea, and passed through china to get to South Korea. Yeonmi is passionate about universal freedom after fighting to get her own.

The lecture will commence at 7:30 p.m. Park will then field questions from the audience, and then sign books later on. She will make history by joining other esteemed speakers who have graced the event over the years. They include Bill Clinton, Jimmy Kimmel, Tony Blair and Margaret Thatcher among many others. The forum was started in 1986 by Sharon Williams and Timothy H.

Park’s inspiring story of freeing North Korea, at a time when the regime was harsh as ever, has set her apart as a voice of those in captivity in North Korea and the rest of the world. BBC even featured her on their list of “Top 100 Global Women” for her great work as a human rights activist. She has also spoken in Dublin during the One Young World Summit and during the Freedom Forum in Oslo.

Park was raised in the city of Hyesan. While she was growing up, the regime in power was notorious for controlling every aspect of their lives. However, after watching the movie Titanic, which had been banned in North Korea, Park got to experience a new form of freedom. Although she had grown up knowing that there was nothing better than losing your life for the sake of the regime, the movie’s depiction of someone dying for love made her view the world from a different angle.

After Engaging in illegal smuggling to be able to provide for his family, the Guardian recounts that Yeonmi Park’s father was arrested, imprisoned and tortured. He got a medical release after contracting an illness, and decided that they had had enough of North Korea: it was time to flee the country. While Park and family set out to escape to South Korea, she didn’t have the slightest clue of what the journey had in store. In the course of the journey, she would separate and reunite with her sister, witness as her mother was raped, and later bury her father, who had finally succumbed to his illness.

Park has written a book, In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom, where she documents some of these horrific experiences. She wants the world to be aware of people like her, who are still in captivity and appear to have been forgotten.

Adam Sender Is Displaying His Art Collection

Art collectors are able to see something in pieces of artwork that the rest of the world is unable to see. Sometimes they will pick pieces that no one else would have deemed beautiful, but once they put them with the rest of their collection, they just fit. The pieces make everything else seem a little bit better, and they fit perfectly with what the art collection had envisioned. When art collectors have the money to purchase a lot of artwork they are able to put together some truly amazing collections. Some art collectors keep those collections to themselves for their own, private viewing, but some are a bit more generous with the art that they have collected.
One art collector who is willing to share with the world the beautiful pieces of art that he has collected and put together to form a stunning collection is Adam Sender. This man and his wife have been wanting to do this for some time, and now the opportunity has come for them to show off his collection. They have decided to put his collection on display in the Miami home that he had been trying to sell, and they are allowing people the chance to come and view it. Check out Adam Sender on LinkedIn.

While some art collectors would believe that the artwork that they have gathered and put together should be theirs and theirs alone, there are others, like Adam Sender, who feel that the beauty should be shared with everyone. Art is something so special, and when someone is able to put multiple pieces of art into a collection, why shouldn’t they share the collection with the world? Art was never made to be hidden away. It is something that should be put out to let the whole world feel a bit more inspired.

Christian Broda Says U.S. Dollar Still the Top Dog

The U.S. dollar has become weaker in global markets, yet world renowned fund manager Christian Broda says the dollar will remain the main currency of choice throughout the world. Mr. Broda’s view opposes the majority opinion of most economists, who gloomily predict a dramatic fall of the dollar and the subsequent loss of special privilege and power in America. Despite the many problems attending the U.S.’s actions throughout the world, Mr. Broda points out that the dollar has not weakened nearly so much as foreign currencies have, and in fact seems to have instead strengthened. So, while many financial experts have predicted the fall of the dollar, he maintains that it is actually situation normal, pointing out that many times in history the greenback was predicted to fall, but did not.

Christian Broda has published many academic whitepapers in the past that made uncannily accurate predictions. For instance, in 2009 he accurately predicted that forces in the marketplace would work to keep inflation low for a long period of time. This has indeed come to pass, with inflation remaining less than 5% for several years. His peers with the opposing view claim the days of America being super entitled and free from effects of crippling national debt are coming to a close. They believe as soon as the petrodollar alliance falls apart, so will the power of the U.S. Federal Reserve, reducing the U.S. dollar to fire-starting paper. This is the view taken by bestselling financial author James Rickards in his new book, “The Death of Money.” He makes several cases based on events in U.S. history, starting with the Civil War, where the dollar was destabilized by war and civil unrest, resulting in major damage to the whole world’s economy. Many other pundits agree.

Most expert observers of the world’s money markets are fearful of the Fed’s changes, with quantitative easing being the main concern. However, Christian Broda recommends that investors stay with their fluctuating dollar investments. He has stated, “Now that the Fed may actually exit, the natural conclusion is that the dollar should strengthen even further… Japan is still doing QE, Europe is opening that possibility in recent weeks. It seems wise to keep your investment in the US, and think twice about following the conventional wisdom that emerging markets is the place to put your money.”

The Expansion And Explosion Of Enterprise Networking Technology And Shaygan Kheradpir

As business and enterprise demands are growing and moving, it has been up to technology service providers to enhance their service capabilities to meet the waves of new traffic and ultimately grow their mobile field. Mobile is where the enterprise networks are trending towards and the developers in the communications industry are zeroing in on that field. All the way from traditional networking and computing in a server environment, and now integrating cloud-based networking and mobile devices, companies like Cisco, Verizon and Juniper Networks are moving ahead to new dimensions of data gathering, storage, analytics and keeping everything connected and up to speed.

One individual who’s been among the leaders in these developments is Shaygan Kheradpir, a networking guru and savvy marketing leader in the world of enterprise technology. Kheradpir started off working at GTE Labs as a network and software developer, working with routing and switching software. Perhaps the most well-known project he oversaw was the TONICS (Telephone Operations Network Integrated Control System), a revolutionary phone network management system that while not quite an early VoIP sysem, was somewhat of a forerunner to that. From there, GTE merged into the company now known as Verizon and Kheradpir became the CIO, and began developing the technologies that are now part of their regular service. Among those technologies is the FiOS service that includes lightning-speed internet and TV service. Just recently, Juniper Networks announced him as their CEO and will now look to his leadership to take them forward.

One area networking technology is improving and further increasing its priorities, is identity recognition and policy enforcement, and Juniper is no exception to that. This is becoming critical as enterprise networks face new threats every day, not least of which is false identity that can come from rogue machines. Developing user profile recognition tools based on behavior, application usage monitoring tools, and threat detection and thwarting is part of a majority of networking developers’ mission and leading into resource and session control protocols and applications.

Cloud-based switches are becoming more and more prevalent as servers housing data centers and virtualized networks are starting to fill up the bandwidth. As the traffic to these data centers increases, so must the speed and the capacity to house the data and application usage across the cloud, and cloud-based switches are being designed to meet these demands. Quality of Service is being integrated to match the usage of voice and video applications across these networks.
