Julia Jackson: A Model For Women Everywhere

Julia Jackson is one of the amazing women behind Jackson Family Wines, which is located on the western ridges of the Mayacamas Range. She has always had an interest in wine and can still remember picking and sorting grapes in 100 degree weather as a kid. As the middle daughter of Barbara Banke and Jess Jackson who founded Jackson Family Wines in 1982, she revealed that, “My dad always made sure we appreciated what it took to become successful — I’ve never forgotten that.” To carve out her own path before coming aboard with the rest of the family at the winery, Julia Jackson graduated from the Stanford Graduate School of Business in 2010 and attended Scripps College between 2006-2010 where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art.

Julia believes that while Sonoma is known for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, its Cabernet Sauvignon is the best around. Jackson Family Wines also produces some of the best Pinot Noir with its Champ de Rêves, which is a deep, aromatically-charged winebrand that is based in Mendocino County. Part of the secret of the Champ de Rêves brand is that the grapes are harvested ripe, the yields are kept low, and the lots are separated until the final blend is influenced by new oak.

Julia is also a known philanthropist who works with and founded the Cambria Seeds of Empowerment program in 2014. The program offers $100,000 in grant money to nonprofit programs that are dedicated to the empowerment of women. Julia has stated that, “To fit into the corporate world as a woman, you’re often told to act other than yourself. We want to celebrate those who exemplify great success but are also authentic.” It has been to this end that Julia Jackson has supported women and the Cambria Seeds of Empowerment program.

George Soros, One of the World’s Most Important Men

Everyone likes to be awed by certain types of people. People like to talk about filthy rich people, and people with whom they disagree. Or, they might like to talk about people who awe them and make them wonder. Then, they like to talk about people that have done much more than others have ever done.

George Soros fits all those categories. Love him or hate him, George Soros is a man who says what he does, and does what he says.

According to Forbes, George Soros is one of the ten richest hedge fund managers in the world. With his own fortune listed at over ten billion dollars, and managing another 25 billion dollars in funds for others, it is plain to see that George Soros is a man who knows exactly what he is doing.

One has to stand in awe at someone who ran and hid from Nazis during World War Two, and then left Hungary and went to England. There, he went to school. No, he didn’t dilly dally around while in school, he earned degrees in economics. Right out of school, Mr. Soros joined an investment firm. Visit projectsyndicate.com to know more about George.

He always held a passion for the rejected people of the world, for those who, like him, have been devastated by tyranny and oppression.

It is this hatred of oppression and care for the oppressed that has fueled Mr. Soros’ ideology for years and years. He was very helpful to Eastern Europeans during the communist regimes that ruled those countries until the collapse of the Soviet Union. After that, he started an organization that helped the former oppressed people adapt to a new way of life under a democratic form of government.

He has always helped the poor, the oppressed. He has single handedly given to more charities and given more money to those charities than any single person, living or dead. Yes, Mr. Soros makes a lot of money, but Mr. Soros is a philanthropist. His desire is to help people and further his causes of democracy politically and economically.

George Soros has stood up to some rather strange dislike by others, and he stands very tall and very straight. He has been accused of being a very powerful political figure. But then again, maybe that claim by others is brought on by the fear they feel when they think about a man of Mr. Soros’ background and action.
