Hugh Jackman Receives “Wolverine 3” Script

The end of an era in superhero cinema is soon to arrive. Wolverine 3 is slated to be Hugh Jackman’s last appearance as the violent mutant anti-hero. The script for the final film in the trilogy has been completed and sent to Jackman. No details on the plot are confirmed, but most indications are the narrative is based on the “Old Man Logan” mini-series.

“Old Man Logan” features an aged Wolverine approaching his passing. The bittersweet tale takes place in the near future, a future in which Wolverine takes part in one last adventure before departing the earth.

Hugh Jackman will forever go done in geek history as the quintessential Wolverine. His first appearance as the character in the original X-Men film made the Australian actor into a worldwide superstar. A solo series was spun from the X-Men features with the second Wolverine film receiving more acclaim than the first.

Originally, Fox was going to recast a young celebrity like Jon Urbana in Jackman’s part in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Jackman ended up keeping the role. 20th Century Fox likely worried about an audience backlash due to unnecessary (and unwanted) recasting.

The X-Men cinematic universe is slated to get a total reboot after the release of X-Men: Apocalypse. Rumors suggest Jackman has a cameo in the new film.

Phillip Diehl From US Money Reserve Speaks About The Penny

It may come as a surprise to you, but the President of US Money Reserve has announced some major changes in the line up of currency that is used within the United States, and it is fascinating news that will have a great effect upon our society. Have you heard of US Money Reserve? You probably have already heard of them, but if you haven’t, here are some quick facts about them.

It is really important that you hear about the information that was revealed by the President of US Money Reserve, Phillip Diehl. Mr. Diehl spoke about the changes in the currency line up on a special report on CNBC’s hit television show, Squawkbox. He basically says that the penny is the one piece of currency that the United States market needs to do away with because of its high cost of production. Apparently, the smallest piece of currency that the United States currently uses also costs more to produce for the market than it holds in its value. This would, of course, be a major change for the US economy. Mr. Diehl says that the penny isn’t even worth picking up from the city streets at this point.

The President of US Money Reserve took some time to respond to an interesting comment that was given by Andrew Sorkin. Apparently, Sorkin believes that the penny is important to the US economy, and Sorkin believes that taking the penny away from the market will cause some changes in inflation that could not be foreseen. Sorkin also believes that the penny leaving the US market will cause prices to become distorted. It was an interesting point, but Phillip Diehl had an impressive rebuttal that put Sorkin’s point to shame. President Diehl pointed out the stunning statistics about the way our economy works currently. According to Diehl, who has credible sources, the majority of our country’s transactions are not done with currency. 75 percent of our transactions are done by means of electronic transfers, so the changes from taking the penny from the market would be minimal.

Will the Ukraine be the next big financial crisis?

George Soros began his philanthropic work according to fortune.com in 1979, first by providing scholarships to blacks in South Africa under apartheid and has grown to be a part of ventures in over 100 countries. The Open Society Foundations have sought to work towards more democratic governments around the world, better conditions for all citizens, and better transparency within governments. On the Open Society Foundations website (2016) Mr. George Soros is stated as considering “open society—where rights are respected, government is accountable, and no one has the monopoly on the truth.”

Within the United States economy there were many factors that together led to the Great Recession. Some of these factors were investment banks were not held to the same regulatory policies that depository banks were, banks were borrowing short and lending long, and in the attempt to stabilize and save the economy money was diverted from business investment to share buy-back for executives. Shortly after this in 2009 Greece had their great financial crisis. The Greek government had spent beyond its means for many years, borrowing more money than it was collecting in taxes, and presenting its financial situation as much better than it was in order to join the European Union. Things got so bad that it was too expensive for Greece to borrow money to pay off its debts. Due to expansiveness of the situation if Greece declares bankruptcy all of the countries that have extended loans to Greece will not get their money and most likely will not be able to pay their own debts. This has led to the creditors’ not being willing to disclose the amount of the loans that Greece has with them.

The Ukraine in recreating itself is looking to the European Union for some assistance in this process and to stave off aggression from Russia. However, the European Union seems to be looking at the Ukraine as the Greece crisis all over again. Mr. Soros (2015) postulates, “the new Ukraine is one of the most valuable assets that Europe has, both for resisting Russian aggression and for recapturing the spirit of solidarity that characterized the European Union in its early days.” There was a large mismanagement of the crisis in Greece through loans at punitive rates and micromanaged reforms from outside of Greece that has wound up creating another string of problems. . With the current situation in the Ukraine, there are two choices according to Mr. Soros, either repeat the mistakes that were made in the Greek crisis, or treat it as the great asset that it is for the European Union by preserving the new Ukraine and assuring its success with Ukraine’s allies doing whatever it takes to enable Ukraine to survive and introduce far reaching economic and political reforms.
