Protests in Venezuela Stopped by Security

Venezuelan Security Forces Block Government Protest
No matter how bad the situation in Venezuela is, it seems as though it can always get worse. It also seems that not everyone is going to stand idly by.

On Tuesday according to Aserne, a large number of opposition protesters came together to rally and demand a recall referendum to remove president Nicolas Maduro. However, Venezuelan security forces were around to block them, having to resort to using tear gas in order to do so.

The opposition coalition of Manuel Gonzalez and co., has vowed to have Maduro removed from power this year, after winning control of the National Assembly legislature elections this past December, which immense public outrage due to the economic crisis being a big help. Inflation has risen to a staggering amount, oil prices have been reduced and many well known food companies have cut back or ceased their operations entirely.

Despite the oppositions’ efforts, the Socialist Party, who has the office, has stated that there simply isn’t enough time this year to organize a referendum due to it being incredibly complicated. Officials added that the opposition should have started this process back in April and also used fraudulent signatures on petitions to try and sway more people into the referendum process.


Desiree “Des” Perez: The Woman Behind Tidal


Rumor Mill: Who Is Des Perez?

Desiree “Des” Perez is certainly a woman of mystery. For the past twenty years, she has been a valued confidant and close friend of recording artist and business mogul Jay Z and his wife, Beyonce. Her nickname among this set of recording greats, who value her counsel, is “Babe Ruthless” and she is frequently seen in the company of Jay Z and Beyonce. Des is married to Juan “OG” Perez, the head of Roc Sports.

Jay Z is worth a cool $500,000,000. and has continued to venture into areas of interest in business, music and art. He recently acquired shares in Carol’s Daughter, a make-up and beauty products company. His greatest past business success was when he and Damon Dash founded Rocawear, a clothing and fashion line; he bought out his former partner and eventually sold the company for more than $200,000,000. Jay Z, also, owns a half share in the 40/40 Clubs, a nightclub franchise, which has plans to expand into the entertainment scenes of Las Vegas and Tokyo. But his pet project is Tidal, a music subscription service company similar to iTunes. Sixteen performers have recently been added to the list of existing performers recording for Tidal. Tidal is an endeavor to share partial ownership of Tidal with the performers themselves.

Des Perez continues to be an important person in this unique and fashionable dynasty, bridging the glamorous worlds of music and entertainment with the more down to earth and mundane but profitable world of business.

Personalities like Jay Z and Beyonce and even Des Perez represent the new hip popular culture. They are symbols of success for young people around the globe. Years before this new dynasty became spotlighted there was a music presenter of a popular ethnic TV program, Soul Train, that offered cool entertainment to young people with a smooth urban edge to it.  His suicide in 2010 highlights the difficulties faced by those people whose business efforts create opportunities for others, but may add unnecessary burdens to other aspects of their already busy life.
