His Political Climb

Trump also considered running for president in the years 2000, 2004 and 2012. He also had desired to run for office of the Governor of New York in 2006 and 2014.

In December 2011, Trump became an independent for a mere five months before making the decision returning to the Republican Party where he pledged to stay.

Trump has made contributions to campaigns of both Republican Party and Democratic Party candidates, with the top ten recipients of his political contributions being six Democrats and four Republicans but as of 2011, his contributions favored the republicans more.

In 2012 February Trump openly endorsed Republican Mitt Romney for president.

In the year 2015, Trump openly expressed interest in running for office of the president and republican leaders were hesitant to support him because they thought he had limited chances of becoming the president of the USA.

He officially became the Republican nominee to run for the office of the president after he beat the other candidates to clinch the seat. In late 2016, Trump faced off with Hillary Clinton in their first ever presidential debate.  He later went ahead to beat Hillary Clinton and became the oldest and wealthiest person to ever become president without ever having military or government experience.

Some have turned into drugs, nervous breakdowns and even in cases, perishing, all in the name of celebrity. Some, however, have managed to avoid the stereotypical fate and have shaped out to be inspirational figures in the society and the world at large. Here are five of them in a random order:

Neil Patrick Harris:

This guy! Where do I start? After playing Doogie Howser, M.D. on Doogie Howser, M.D., Harold and Kumar, Dr. Horrible and How I Met Your Mother, NPH came out and subsequently joined the gay-rights activism. He is a celebrated Emmy Awards winner and is the first openly gay man to host the Academy Awards.

Mayim Bialik:

Ah, brainy ladies. Here is another one. After finishing up her role as the precocious heroine of TV’s Blossom in 1995, Bialik largely disappeared from the screen. Behind the screen, she went to UCLA, where she finished her PhD in neuroscience in 2008. She is now known for playing a neurobiologist on The Big Bang Theory, making her one of very few actors who can say that she’s a doctor and plays one on TV.

Macaulay Culkin:

He really turned his life around. He rose to fame through Home Alone but then began to fade away in the mid-90s. He got estranged from his father, he was hanging out with Michael Jackson, he was getting married at 18 and he really went went down. He returned to public life in 1998 with an appearance in the video for Sonic Youth’s “Sunday”. Later, he appeared in other films and even dated (but broke up with) Mila Kunis and these days, he works on his own terms and according to his taste.

Alyssa Milano:

Alyssa is one of the few actors who has been consistent with her career, moving from Who’s the Boss? to Melrose Place to Charmed, with a recurring role on My Name Is Earl and scads of film credits to boot. More to her professional work, she is also well known for her philanthropic work, for many organizations including UNICEF, where she’s been a brand Ambassador since 2003.

Seth Green:

He was adorable in Party Monster, Can’t Buy Me Love and Pump Up the Volume. He went on to work on other productions and other than voicing Chris Griffin on Family Guy and other TV and film works, he has devoted himself to Robot Chicken, a stop-motion Adult Swim staple that he co-created.

Wisdom, Knowledge and Money are Important https://mycelebrity.blog/wisdom-knowledge-and-money-is-important/ https://mycelebrity.blog/wisdom-knowledge-and-money-is-important/#respond Fri, 28 Jul 2017 16:06:22 +0000 http://mycelebrity.blog/?p=92 Warren Edward Buffett is an American business magnate, investor and philanthropist. He is one of the most successful investor in the world. As of March 2017, he was named the second wealthiest person in the United States and the fourth wealthiest in the world.

20160427160707-5-warren-buffett

Buffett developed an interest in business and investing in his youthful days. Due to this, he has been referred to as ‘’Wizard’’, ‘’Oracle’’ or ‘’Sage’’ by global media outlets. He is known for his adherence to value investing and for his personal frugality despite his immense wealth.

Despite being a prominent businessperson, he is also active in contributing to political issues. In 2016, he endorsed the Democratic Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton in the U.S. presidential elections and he has publicly opposed the policies, actions and statements of President Donald Trump.

How I wish, everyone could learn that today doesn’t define tomorrow; our interest, focus and goals are what drive us. Buffett’s interest in business began in his early age where he went a mile forward and worked in his grandfather’s grocery. As young as he managed to invest in assets and stock markets.

Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting

Warren Buffett, chief executive officer of Berkshire Hathaway, drinks a Cherry Coca-Cola as he tours the exhibition floor prior to the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting in Omaha, Nebraska, U.S., on Saturday, May 1, 2010. Buffett, the Wall Street critic who invested $5 billion in Goldman Sachs Group Inc., said he supports the bank’s Chief Executive Officer Lloyd Blankfein ‘100 percent’ after the firm was sued by regulators for fraud.

Warren Buffett once said that the basic ideas of investing are to look at stocks as business, use the market’s fluctuations to your advantage, and seek a margin of safety. That is what he was taught by Ben Graham. This is the reason Buffett is famous for investing in companies such as Coca Cola, Wells Fargo and IBM.

“An investor needs to buy the stock as if he is buying the whole company down the road.”

A hundred years from now, they will still be the cornerstones of investing.

120729-biz-buffett-slide4-1121a.today-ss-slide-desktop

Throughout the years, Buffett worked and improved his career and managed to marry and purchased a house, which he still lives in to date. I guess that is why most of us refer to him as frugality.

Adam West’s career as an actor spanned for 63 years. I would be would be right if I said dreams are what make us to be who we are, since Adam became the best actor from the words he said to his father in his days of youth, that he intended to go to Hollywood after school.

At the time he picked his stage name as Adam West, he had already married and with two kids, a perfect example that nothing or no one can hinder your achievements. All the effort West made, he managed to make a living from personal appearance as Batman. Though, difficulties must come along in a success journey.

West made every appearance and became a success story. He has been to television shots to animated series to films and so much more. In 2010, a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs Walk of Star was dedicated to him. West received the 2,468th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on April 5, 2012. His star is located at 6764 Hollywood Boulevard in front of the Guinness Museum in Hollywood, California.

In 2013, he was interviewed in a series called Pioneers of Television and also, he was the subject of the documentary, starring Adam West. In 2016, West guest-starred as himself on the 200th episode of The Big Bang Theory. Also in the 17th episode of The Big Bang Theory’s Season 3, Penny happened not to be aware of Adam West and this made Sheldon very furious.

 

In June 2017, Hollywood suffered a big blow when Adam West passed on in Los Angeles, California, following a brief battle with leukemia. West died at the age of 88. This was a terrible and unexpected loss and he will forever be missed.
