Yeon-mi and her mother had to make the initial departure on their own. Park Jin Sik had stayed behind but would later reunite with Yeonmi Park and her mother.
Yeon-mi and her mom endured many hardships in the quest to freedom. They were traveling with smugglers and had to keep free from the horrible conditions that presented themselves from these people. Even though the journey was long and dangerous the Park’s eventually made it to freedom in South Korea. Yeon-mi’s father had died along the way. She was also reunited with her sister as well.

In today’s society, most live with the constant, never ending battle of losing weight and keeping the weight off. Along with being overweight, come many health concerns that eventually require prescription medications to treat conditions such as diabetes and high cholesterol.
While there’s many “magic” diet pills and “lose weight quick” advertisements out there in the fitness industry, hardly any diet works for long or the weight just comes back. It’s unhealthy and discouraging altogether. However, despite any hopelessness, there is one system that continuously proves to be a fast, effective AND healthy way to shed the weight for good.
Nutrimost works with a technology called “Resonant Frequency”, which according to Dr. Rob Vasquez, is key in measuring “the biomarkers in the body to specific metabolism”. This aides in customizing a unique weight loss plan for each individual, as everyone’s body is different. Afterward, staff assists the patient to understand which foods are beneficial and which foods would hinder any progress in weight loss. The diet consists of organic foods and alot of vegetables.
For those patients who began NutriMost for the reason of concerns with health, such as sleep apnea and even chronic pain – after they lost the weight, they soon realized that one or all of their health issues were resolved, and could even stop their prescribed medications.

Solo Capital Markets is a boutique financial services corporation that handled just under £68 million in assets by March of 2015, with an excess of £30 million in cash flow. This may sound like just another successful boutique financier but when you learn that the firm only began in 2009, the members become that much more impressive. Solo Capital did start as a solo mission, a mission of one man, Solo Capital Markets CEO, Sanjay Shah.
Sanjay Shah began his education at King’s College as a medical school student, but deciding part way through that it wasn’t a track he’d enjoy he changed directions in a sharp pivot and became an accountant. Yet that financial background would be the solid footing upon which he would once again career pivot and go into investment banking. Going to work first for Merrill Lynch, then to ING, Dutch Bank, Credit Suise and lastly Morgan Stanley he came up through the trenches of every major bank in Europe. He learned the financial services market from the ground up from the best firms in the continent, only to find himself unemployed after the crash settled in 2009. It was then he went “solo” and opened Solo Capital Markets.
By the end of March 2011 Shah had taken home over £19 million in earnings and he went forward to open over another three dozen companies spanning over England, Dubai, Luxembourg, The Cayman Islands, The British Virgin Islands, and Malta. Later that year he opened one of those businesses with the head of Solo’s foreign exchange, Mankash Jain, who had come over previously from Barclays. Today, there are two managing firms that have control over Solo Capital Markets, Solo Capital Partners, and Solo Group Holdings. Today Shah considers himself “retired” and spends most of his time involved in philanthropic pursuits.
