Alset Supports Feeding America's COVID-19 Response Fund

Los Angeles, Jun 2, 2020 ( - Alset, the world's first bartering, favors, and gig app has announced a new initiative in response to COVID-19. Alset will donate $0.10 for every new download of the app and $0.90 for every gig created on Alset during the month of June in support of Feeding America's COVID-19 Response Fund.

"We at Alset are more than thrilled to support Feeding America's COVID-19 Response Fund in any way possible," says Lo. "Our whole team is excited to help during this very trying time."

Alset's support of Feeding America's COVID-19 Response Fund was inspired by Alset user, David Boettger. Upon completing a survey, Boettger asked Alset product manager, Ian Tyack, to send his compensation as a donation to Feeding America. "I spoke with Ian about how I didn't want to keep my survey compensation. He asked me if I wanted to donate to a charity or non-profit instead and I immediately thought of Feeding America. I'm very fortunate to live a life with the privilege of food security and Feeding America ensures that people have meals on a national level. I'm so proud that Alset and its users decided to donate to help Americans during this time of need."

Other users followed Boettger's lead and a spark was ignited with Robert Lo, Alset's founder. Founded in the autumn of 2017, Alset wants its users to invest in themselves and their communities. By joining Alset, people can develop new skills for customers who need their service.

Users on the Alset can barter their services, offer them as a favor, or charge an hourly rate to potential customers. Alset allows anyone to purchase or offer a service, regardless of their ability to pay or expertise. "I took the gig economy tech predecessors and vertically integrated them to democratize the way we work in the twenty-first century," says Lo. Unlike other gig working apps, users can use the barter and favors features for free. Additionally, Alset charges a flat fifty cents ($0.50 USD) for every gig booked through the paid service feature to ensure a level playing field for its community.

Users can download Alset from Google Play and Apple App Store.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jul 8, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Muslim hajj pilgrims ascend Mount Arafat for day of worship

Jul 8, 2020

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims. One of...

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Jul 8, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The Latest on the tensions between the United States and Iran (all times local): 10:45 p.m. U.N.

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Jul 8, 2020

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...
