Skout Has Features That Go Above and Beyond

 

National Superhero Day has come and gone but that’s no reason that we can’t keep celebrating them! Superheros can virtually be anyone that helps to empower us and make us feel better about ourselves. No one celebrates Superheros better than Skout does. Skout is a popular dating and friendship app. Within the app, users have the chance to give virtual gifts to one another. It’s a way to facilitate conversations, impress someone, and form a connection. Those virtual gifts aren’t just good for the users, however. They actually benefit everyone. According to a PR Newswirearticle, those virtual gifts help out charities. For each virtual gift that is sent, Skout makes a monetary contribution to a charity. Those charities include ones like SF-Marin Food Bank, Muttville and Cat Town.

Skout has a lot of unique features that other online dating apps do not. For one, they have a travel feature which is like no other. Most other apps have it so that you can only strike up a conversation with someone who lives within a certain distance from you. That’s not the case at all when it comes to Skout. Skout wants you to branch out and make new friends. That’s why users have the option to pick a new city, state, or even country to visit. They can go as far away as New York or London. Here they can chat with new people they wouldn’t have met otherwise, learn about new cultues, and so much more.

Skout’s travel feature doesn’t just end with choosing a location. There’s another option for those who are adventurous. A user can shake their phone and they are connected with another user. This person can be anywhere in the world, that’s the beauty of it. It gives everyone a chance to branch out and learn new things while making new friends. It’s quite fun for those who rarely get to leave their house or travel much. It allows them to travel right from their phone.

Overall, Skout is great because it stands apart from the crowd. Skout is one of those apps that isn’t just about online dating. It has a community feel. Skout users can come together to talk about their lives, their feelings, and whatever else makes them tick. They can create statuses that share their feelings or they can post pictures of how they currently feel. It’s all about bringing people together.

Renowned Human Rights Activist Criticizes Socialism Yet Supports Sanders

Thor Halvorssen is a well-known human rights activist and a founder of the Human Rights Foundation. In a recent Fox TV interview, he openly criticized Socialism, yet admitted to supporting Bernie Sanders, a Democratic Presidential candidate known for Socialist proposal.

Mr. Halvorssen claimed that he would rather have him in the office than Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton, as he went on, has accepted contributions from Middle Eastern states known for totalitarian regimes, suppression of human rights, and banning of Christmas. So, support for Mr. Sanders was a result of opting out for a lesser evil.

It seems, though, that Bernie will not win the nomination anyway. Now, the choice will be between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

The problem is, as Thor Halvorssen portrayed, when a Socialist leader makes lots of populist promises to the people, but then ends up looting the country. An example that was given is Venezuela where the government froze prices of certain products and services, which then resulted in shortages and a humanitarian crisis.

Thor Halvorssen thinks that democratic Socialism can exist if there’s a rule of law. The problem is when the executive in charge decides to take control of everything.

Mr. Halvorssen’s family comes from Venezuela. His father was a political prisoner there, and his mother was shot. Presently, his first cousin is in prison in this South American country.

As this famous activist says, you don’t end poverty by redistribution of wealth. You need to create more wealth. But, not every Bernie Sanders supporter seems to understand that.
