Avi Weisfogel Involvements in Music and Sports

Avi Weisfogel spends much of his time diagnosing and treating patients with Sleep Apnea and other disorders in his Health Heart Sleep care center. Nevertheless, did you know what he does when he’s not working? Avi Weisfogel is a long-time classic rocks fan particularly those done by musicians Pink Floyd and Billy Joel.

Both Billy Joel and Pink Floyd were the forerunners of Arena Band and Rock that summarized both the progressive and psychedelic rock eras and featuring great songs such as ‘We Don’t Need No Education’ in the famous album ‘The Wall’. These songs reflected the oppression and war-related forces that endangered the human freedom during the 20th century. They reminded Avi of the connection between the many casualties of wars in the earlier centuries and the passion and power that the great leaders like Waters showed when they visited their grandfather’s grave and memorial.

Avi Weisfogel also enjoys following the successes of the New York Rangers Hockey Club. As such, he often hosts a youth hockey camp every year for the club’s smallest fans in what he like to call the Go Skate Program. This program is meant to educate the children between the age of 7 and 15 years about the game, inspiring them to take an interest in the sport.

This year’s program is expected to bring together more than 10,000 regional kids who will be exposed to weekly training between the month of July and September. The program will be hosted in the NY Rangers official playing facility and will be running from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Learners will be engaged by trainers from Rangers’ coaching staff, alumni and other professional hockey players recognized across the United States.

New York Rangers has been a huge part of Avi Weisfogel life helping him hold fundraising for children facing challenges or illnesses. Last year, the team participated in the annual Hockey Flight Cancer Campaign that held an awareness event in a game in Arizona Coyotes, raising a lot of money for the Garden of Dreams Foundation. Garden of Dream Foundation was a charity that funded cancer patients in Phoenix, Arizona.

Thor Halvorssen Reveals How Socialism Affected His Own Life

The 2016 U.S. Presidential election cycle has been one of the most bitter and hardest fought in the history of the country, but the rise of so called anti-establishment figures has continued to shock seasoned political commentators. On the Republican side of the election the rise of Donald Trump has sent shock waves through the GOP, while Bernie Sanders campaign for the nomination of the Democrat’s has grown into one of the largest grass roots campaigns in the history of U.S. elections.

 

Thor Halvorssen recently completed an interview with Fox Business host Trish Regan, during which he revealed just how socialism has affected the lives of his family members in their native country of Venezuela. Halvorssen based his Human Rights Foundation in New York to avoid issues with freedom of speech like those he has witnessed in Venezuela. Under the rule of the late Hugo Chavez and his successor Halvorssen revealed his own father was imprisoned and tortured for his political views despite holding diplomatic status in the country. This is merely the first in a series of events that showed how socialism can be used as a disguise for darker intentions in the view of Halvorssen, who went on to reveal his mother was shot by suspected government forces as she attended a political rally.

 

According to this Reddit thread, despite the fears Thor Halvorssen has for the future of Venezuela under socialist rule he revealed his decision to back Bernie Sanders came after a large amount of research into the backgrounds of the other candidates. Halvorssen explained he has already made the largest possible financial donation to the grass roots campaign of Bernie Sanders; this decision was reached because of the problems Halvorssen sees with the connections Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump have with restrictive regimes and dictatorships around the world.
