With insecurity, Business people do not invest, but buy and sell

With insecurity, Business people do not invest, but buy and sell

Usually in an environment where there is no security, that also means any businessman who want to do business there is taking a high risk.

Nobody loves to go for a long drive on a bumpy road. It is true for investments as well. Conditions of severe political and economic insecurity, corruption, often underpinned by weak governance and high levels of poverty make the risk management of an investment almost impossible. In an unpredictable volatile situation, no wise investor would prefer a term investment, because although the chances of long term reward might be very high, there could be indefinite chances of downside too. However, there are investors who love to take benefit of these uncertain markets. They buy on dips and sell when it goes up and exit any time of their choice with profit-- it could be some stocks or some stakes in businesses. To them, short-term volatility is nothing strange; sometimes they wait to embrace unsecured uncertainty. They prefer to buy and sell business risks without blocking their fund in risky investments.

According to Haitian Parliament, Privert is no longer President

According to Haitian Parliament, Privert is no longer President

Here is copy of the note issued by the Haitian Parliament to announce that as of June 15, 2016, the Haitian Parliament is now in charge of the country and not Jocelerme Privert. The note was signed by Cholzer Chancy, President of the Chamber of Deputies Ronald Lareche, Vice-President of the Senate,

Haiti politicians and lawmakers are divided in opinions on whether Privert is still a Haiti's caretaker president. As per Emmanuel Jean Francois, the communications chief of the prime minister's office, there is no institutional vacuum until the lawmakers meet in a National Assembly and resolve the matter by deciding whether to elect a successor or extend Privert's term. Till that President Privert is Haiti's leader. However, as per Gary Bodeau, a lawmaker from the Lower House, Privert's term has unquestionably finished and Prime Minister Enex Jean-Charles has automatically become Haiti's top official by the midnight of Tuesday, June 14, 2016. It is illegal and unconstitutional for Privert to remain in the National Palace. Haitian historian Georges Michel said, as per Haitian tradition, only force can remove Privert from power before the election. However, as the country is passing through a peaceful phase, the chance of forceful expulsion is very rare. The Tet Kale political party of former President Michel Martelly called for a "popular mobilization" for Privert's expulsion while the Fanmi Lavalas faction demanded his stay. Earlier, Privert has repeatedly said that his future will be decided by the divided Parliament who put him into power.

He is the first Haitian to compete in the World Wrestling Championship. At 37, Castelly is a Division II wrestler at American International in Springfield, Mass., who wrestles in both Freestyle, and Greco-Roman style. While serving in the U.S. military, he passed last few months bouncing between U.S.A and Haiti, coordinating his functions as the head of Haiti's wrestling federation and arranging his participation in the Olympic, the lone participant from Haiti in the Rio Olympic. He worked hard to convince Haitian officials that he is not only an American, he is also a Haitian and he has the ability and potential to represent Haiti in the Olympic Games. When he was a kid, his mum used to get upset with his habit of fighting. Castelly realized he could wrestle when he watched Olympic wrestling on TV. Presently, he is an assistant coach at the Nieves Wrestling Club and also coaches Springfield Technical Community College and he's in training himself.
