Legal End Sought To Insurance Claim By Bruce Levenson

The sale of the Atlanta Hawks NBA franchise should have brought to an end the ownership of the historic team by Bruce Levenson and his business partners who believed an agreement had been reached with the insurance giant AIG that should have been concluded many months ago. The purchase of the Hawks for around $730 million in June 2015 came after months of negotiations over the mutual termination of the contract of General Manager Danny Ferry, who Levenson’s team feel triggered constructive dismissal clauses in a workplace based policy held with AIG.

The legal case will be brought in a Fulton County court by the legal team representing Levenson’s Atlanta Hawks Basketball & Entertainment Group where the group hopes to bring to a close its career as the owners of the franchise; Levenson himself was the face of the franchise and appears to be heading the legal case that will test workplace torts and the clauses of the insurance policy. Comments and actions made by Danny Ferry have been seen as constructive dismissal and Levenson’s legal team believe there is little for AIG to fight as the claim was agreed upon prior to the sale of the franchise.

Bruce Levenson has been one of the leaders of many different philanthropic programs that take place around the world; since leaving the Hawks in June 2015 the University of Washington graduate has headed an anti bigotry ball for the Kennedy Arts Center to raise funds. The belief Bruce Levenson has for bringing fairness to the world has even prompted he and more than 100 prominent members of the Jewish faith to openly call on the Israeli government to open communication channels to help bring peace to the Middle East.

Fabletics Takes Amazon By Storm

Since the establishment of Fabletics, the firm has displayed a remarkable performance in the fashion e-commerce industry. They have adopted a unique approach to fashion e-commerce which has set them apart from their competitors. Fabletics has thrived under the smothering conditions with Amazon controlling over 20 percent of the fashion e-commerce sector. This company was founded by JustFab Co-CEOs and the renowned actor and fashion icon Kate Hudson. Fabletics has been able to grow a business of over $250 million dollars’ worth in a short span of three years under very challenging conditions. They have adopted a subscription mechanism in selling their active wear clothes to clients across the globe. Fabletics is a brand that is remarkably inspirational and is complemented by the convenience and excellence of their customer relationships.

 

One of the major contributors to the unmatched success of Fabletics is their ability to utilize reverse showrooming. Reverse showrooming is a factor that has significantly suffocated a lot of fashion e-commerce companies, but not Fabletics. Their subscription membership service is remarkably convenient and integrated to the clients’ shopping. Fabletics has used reverse showrooming to get rid of the difference between online and physical shopping. Consumers who purchase their clothes in brick and mortar outlets have their transactions reflected in their online shopping cart. Due to this strategy, about 25% of Fabletics clients have joined membership at a physical store, while 30-50 percent of customers in the stores are already members through online subscription.

 

Fabletics has used strategies that have likened them to companies like Warby Parker and Apple. This is an approach that has proved essential for the fashion e-commerce service providers. Fabletics aims to open about 100 more brick and mortar outlets in the next 3-5 years. This will be an addition to the existing 16 stores located in prime locations such as Hawaii, Florida, Illinois, and California. One of the factors behind the success of Fabletics is the fact that they have built a brand which is modern, innovative and high-value right from day one.

 

Fabletics has been able to ride on the turbulent waves in the fashion e-commerce sector to their current leading position in the industry. They have turned reverse showrooming into their advantage making sure that there is no difference between shopping done online or at a brick and mortar outlet. They have successfully integrated their subscription service, helping them to utilize reverse showrooming as marketing strategy instead of it being a limitation.

 

Fabletics was founded in 2013; this was after Kate Hudson and her partners realized a gap in the athletic wear sector. The company was looking to offer unmatched quality and stylish clothing at an accessible price point. Just a year after their establishment, Fabletics expanded its services to Europe, providing services to clients in the UK, France, and Germany. That same year they made their way into the Canadian market. By 2015, Fabletics was shipping orders worth over 1 million. Later they expanded their services to Australia and Spain. Later in 2015 Fabletics launched their FL2 men’s line and expanded to Netherlands.

George Soros – the principled profiteer

Many successful business people, especially speculators, are derided as amoral seekers of profit. They’re denounced as rapacious rent-seekers whose motto is “accumulate wealth, forgetting all but self.” For strong critics of capitalism’s excesses, it becomes hard to grapple then with stereotype-shattering figures like George Soros who, rather than viewing wealth accumulation as a way to achieve their own vain goals, instead view it as the best way for the high-minded to implement their philosophies in the real world.

From academia to Wall St.
Unlike most who fill the ranks of high finance, George Soros never had any particular ambitions of lucre. In fact, he had originally sought to become a social philosopher instead. He was quite elated when, at age 17, he was accepted to the London School of Economics and began studying under the renowned master Karl Popper. Soros was deeply swayed by Popper’s ideas on open societies. In his book, Open Society and Its Enemies, Popper lays out the vision for which he argues all societies should strive in order to maximize freedom and well-being for all. These ideas arguably formed the intellectual foundation that would guide Soros, not just through his academic career, but through his financial one as well.

Exigencies of survival
Upon graduation, Soros did not have any immediate job offers. He worked for a few years as an itinerant salesman to make ends meet. He did not enjoy that line of work and around the age of 25 resolved to go work on Wall St. Even holding a prestigious degree, George Soros was serially rebuffed by the hyper-competitive hiring climate.

Finally George Soros landed his first job as a financial analyst at the little-known firm Singer and Friedman. Over the next 15 years, he would work for a string of Wall St. trading firms with an uneven output. Even as he eventually made his way to vice president at a major investment house, he was described as being far more interested in expounding on his philosophical treatises than tending to his job. Throughout this time, he continued to work on his theories of reflexivity, heavily derived from the work of his teacher Karl Popper.

Eventually he branched off to form his own investment fund, Soros Fund Management. By all accounts, including his own, he did not do this to make money. On the contrary, his primary goal was to test the now multiple theories of markets he had elaborated over 15 years of his own philosophical studies. The almost singular strangeness of this driving impulse almost cannot be overstated: At no point in his financial career was George Soros ever to any significant extent motivated by outsize personal gain. This is a crucial point to understand for anyone who wonders why one of the most successful speculators in history has spent the vast majority of his latter years exclusively on philanthropic activities.

Today George Soros runs his Open Societies Foundations. These are charged with finding practical means to implement the theories laid out by Karl Popper and later expanded and refined by his most notable protégé. To understand George Soros one must know that he isn’t so much a fantastically rich businessman as he is a fantastically rich philosopher.

The Emergence of EOS

In just seven years, EOS has been able to insert themselves as a major player in the lip balm industry. How they were able to do so is an interesting story and a lesson for new startup companies as well as existing companies in any industry. The full story of EOS’ emergence is detailed out in a story in Fast Company.

The lip balm market was long neglected by those companies that dominated it, namely Pfizer w its Chapstick brand, Blistex and Carmax. While their lip balms sold well, customers were not excited about their products and did not have any real allegiance to their brands, which is unusual for an industry that has been in existence for such a long period of time. Lip balms had not been innovated on for years and many of the brands had not changed their formula for lip balm for almost a century. Instead, the major lip balm brands would differentiate themselves by their product prices and would increase or lower prices to capture additional sales.

EOS lip balm entered into the market and interviewed potential customers and highlighted women as a market component that they wanted to appeal to. These women shoppers were not enthralled with many aspects of the lip balms that they bought including their medicinal flavors, unnatural product ingredients, and their bland flavors. As such, EOS re-engineered their own brand of lip balm using custom equipment and developed a lip balm that had exciting flavors, a unique applicator orb, and which used higher quality ingredients that worked better than their competitors. To cover their higher costs they charged a premium price, but customers were pleased with a more exciting lip balm like EOS and bought it in droves. See, http://intl.target.com/p/eos-organic-lip-balm-sphere-summer-fruit/-/A-13352556.

EOS’ emergence is one of listening to customers and developing a product for their needs. Existing players in markets should take heed of new competitors to their industry. EOS lip balms quickly grew in popularity and online retailers like Ulta and Lucky Vitamin began selling them.

However, they have come back to the NFL North this year with player who are more prepared to face any opponent on the football field. As a matter of fact, the writer is suggesting that since the Lions have a home-game advantage during their match against the Chicago Bears, the fans should be placing their bets on the former now.

Meanwhile, the NFL odds remains undecided for both the Baltimore Ravens and the New England Patriots, the two teams that will be going up against each other next. The latter has always been known to possess powerhouse athletes, but the first-mentioned has shown in the recent years as well that they are not to go down without a good fight.

Aspiring to the SEC Golden Whistleblower Status

Becoming an SEC Whistleblower greatly enhances the bank account and life afterward. This is how life was changed for one former company employee who cooperated with the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Whistleblower Program. There are specific legalities to be aware of when working in the world of investments. Since the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, there have been dedicated efforts for the Washington insiders on the regulatory side of this to ban together to create a template that will be very lucrative to follow when on the side of those who can expose the ‘dirty capitalists’ behind the walls of Wall Street. The boondoggle that is now a new career for so many great lawyers starting with Jordan A. Thomas.

When many of the legal magazines that recognize great lawyers write articles that recognize accomplishments they will certainly be writing regularly about the rise to the top of the SEC Whistleblower lawyer. Jordan A. Thomas is one such lawyer who was a former Assistant Director and Assistant Chief Litigation Legal Expert in the Enforcement Department of the SEC. He lead the effort to write the rules and regulations for this program so that sanctions could be appropriately placed on violators. Of course, to have violators, the ones who perform the expository endeavors must be guided so that the claims they will be making will be accepted as bonafide evidence in a legal court. As well, the person or persons who will be risking their reputations, careers and livelihoods for the rest of their lives will be protected. Without the proper protection from the program, no one would ever aspire to lose their ability to earn a living after being blackballed by employers who typically would retaliate against rats who expose them as has happened as a rule in the past.

This protection that is laid out by the SEC Whistleblower Program. It is essential for promoting this new occupation that is somewhat high risk although pays off very very well as commissions range from ten to thirty percent of the violator’s sanctions. These are well over the tens of million of dollars. In fact a commission alone as mentioned earlier is just under $20 million dollars. This is after the legal team gets their share which is much more than thirty per cent. What is certain is that life is good for the SEC Whistleblower attorney and for the whistleblower.

Glenn Beck’s ‘Anti-Semitic’ Attacks against George Soros Backfires on Him

Glenn Beck, a commentator at Fox News, accused billionaire investor and philanthropist George Soros as a thorn in the American way of life. His baseless claims that George Soros, one of the most prominent figures in the world is running a cabal shadow government that has taken down governments and is planning to destroy the American political system.

This anti-Semitic talk is well too known. The Hungarian far right has been dishing out the same claims for years. It is sad to listen to Beck’s promos on opensocietyfoundations.org because clearly, they are lies propagated to portray Soros as an anti-Semite – an enemy of the Jews. Soros, record as a Democrat, an anti-totalitarian and a funder for liberal movements speaks for itself.

Soros has done more than any other person in the West to fight European Communism has. On his 80th birthday, Lord Mark Malloch Brown toasted Soros on his birthday as among the quartet consisting of greats like Ronald Regan, Pope John Paul II and Margaret Thatcher that worked to bring down communism in Europe.

George Soros was born to a Jewish family in 1930 in Budapest, the capital of Hungary. The 1930s marked a difficult period in Hungary’s history on Biography. The country was in an economic turmoil and was forced to form trade treaties with polarized fascist Italy and Nazi Germany amidst the great depression.

These left the Jewish community in the country in a no man’s land. A communist dictatorship took over Hungary and terrorized the Jewish community forcing them to hide or flee the country. George Soros was no exception. As a young boy, Soros and his family forged documents and disguised themselves with fake identities to survive the dictatorship.

The false identity allowed George, a 14-year old boy at the time to act as a messenger of the Budapest Jewish Council. As a teenager, Soros traveled to England to pursue his college education. He enrolled in the London School of Economics where he discovered his passion in financial markets. In 1956, Soros traveled to New York where he took a job at Wall Street. His parents who had become refugees after the Soviet Union’s attack on the Hungarian Revolution later joined him in New York.

While on Wall Street, he made his wealth in a typical fashion of Wall Street folk through stock speculation. Soros is currently ranked in the top 20 of the world’s wealthiest man on Forbes. Soros has spent a large chunk of that fortune on philanthropic agendas and financing Democratic presidential candidates including John Kerry, President Obama and now Hillary Clinton.

Despite his actions, which are clear to see by anyone, Beck, with his misguided agenda is trying to paint Soros as an all-evil man to the world. Soros, however, showing his moral high ground and wanting his record to speak for itself did not take the bait put forth by Beck, a bottom feeder. Beck is a liar attempting to discredit Soros by suggesting that a teenage Soros, working as a messenger for the Hungarian Jewish Council was colluding with the Communist in persecution and execution of Jews. However, Beck’s cunning plan to take advantage of his audience’s naivety completely failed him.
