Sam Boraie teams up with Shaquille O’Neil on rebound development

Sam Boraie, vice president of operations with Boraie Development (see, bloomberg.com), has teamed up with basketball legend, rap star and Hollywood A-lister Shaquille O’Neil to construct the first high rise in Newark since 1962. The building, a stunning, 23-story tower with heavy Art-Deco influence will be a mixed-use space. It will feature hundreds of condo units, apartments and over 7,500 square feet of retail space.

An all-star team

Shaquille O’Neil is one of the most successful American professional athletes. The Newark native has shown incredible aptitude for other pursuits, beginning with his acting and music career, while he was still playing for such teams as the L.A. Lakers and Orlando Magic. But it’s been in business where O’Neil has really come into his own. He’s gained a reputation as an astute entrepreneur and a staunch advocate for the economic betterment of his struggling hometown.

Sam Boraie is likewise well-credentialed. According to crunchbase.com, his firm, Boraie Development is widely credited with almost single-handedly turning the downtown New Brunswick, New Jersey area from a festering slum into one of the state’s most sought-after real estate markets. This ongoing project was started by Sam’s father, Omar, and has been continued by Sam and his brothers.

PR News says what makes the Newark development so special is the fact that it may not have been capable of being pulled off by anyone on the planet besides Shaquille O’Neil and Sam Boraie. That’s because no traditional financier wanted to touch it. Boraie was literally laughed out of meetings with bankers when he told them he wanted to build a luxury condo complex in downtown Newark. It was after a few of these encounters that he had the idea to go to O’Neil, who has the reputation as a sharp investor as well as a dedicated activist for Newark urban renewal.

The two quickly melded and drew up an agreement. For a large part of the initial financing on the $60,000,000 project, O’Neil would get a sizable ownership stake and rights to the penthouse suite. Boraie Development financed much of the rest of the project with its own capital, taking a sizable risk. Today, construction is well underway. The project should be completed by spring of 2018.

Get Immediate Effects With Wen By Chaz Cleansing Conditioner

Typically any beauty product takes some time to show its impact. It needs some time to get absorbed by the skin in order to let the effect say.

Hence it is a pleasant surprise to come across Wen by Chaz cleansing conditioner which shows its impact after the first wash itself. Even if the hair is really dirty, messy, brittle or very thin, Wen by Chaz cleansing conditioner takes care of it. And there can never be a better feeling than soft and silky hair bouncing on one’s head.

As compared to any other hair care product, a higher amount of Wen by Chaz cleansing conditioner is to be used on hair while washing. The reason behind this can be that it is one product that is doing the work of many other products. Hence there is no need for another shampoo, conditioner or even a styling gel while using this product. This may be the reason for using a higher amount of this product while washing hair.

The impact can be felt even while washing hair with it. Hair becomes soft to touch while rubbing the product in the scalp. Immediately after the first wash, there would be a shine and bounce to the hair. This will last for the entire day. In fact, it would be difficult to resist the urge of passing fingers through the hair all the time.

In the beginning, it may be important to use Wen by Chaz Dean (http://chazdean.com/) cleansing conditioner on a daily basis. This is because the impact does not last too long. After waking up the next day, hair may get back to their normal condition. But slowly this will go away. The impact of Wen by Chaz cleansing conditioner will remain for a longer duration, and daily wash will not be required.

Securus Technologies Packages Safeguards In Proprietary Software

Securus Technologies, based in Dallas, Texas, is a provider of communications services for correctional institutions, safety organizations, and law enforcement and police establishments. The primary purpose is to provide a platform for inmates and their families to communicate with each other and stay in touch.

 

There are instances, however, when the communications are used for things other than just chit-chat among family members. Criminals are criminals, and if they have the chance, they like to practice their trade whether they are inside or outside of the penitentiary.

 

Securus has developed a technology called LBS technology, or Securus Location Based Services. This works by apprising the approximate location of a cell phone which can help to track down calls that are coming into or going out of an institution. It does not depend on GPS tracking which can be blocked easily. The technology shows the cell phone location as well as the location that the call is originating from or going to. In this way, the location that inmates are calling from or receiving calls as well as where an incoming call is coming from is recorded.

 

Recently an accolade came into the Securus home office from a facility where one of the employees of the prison was helping to bring in drugs and alcohol to the inside of the prison. The technology helped to provide evidence that led to his arrest and incarceration.

 

In another instance, a conversation was recorded between an inmate and a younger sibling located outside of the prison facility. The prisoner was advising the younger sibling, who had never been in trouble before how to speak to the police about a recent shooting. Due to this conversation, enough evidence was gathered to solve an important outstanding criminal case.

 

Thanks to Securus, many crimes are prevented and solved, and law enforcement and correctional facilities can keep their facilities and jurisdictions much safer than they would have been before.

Calm as Squaw Valley Resort Handles the Water Situation

Water is among the most useful commodities in the world for human beings, animals, and plants. It’s ,thus, a life supporting and lifesaving drink that can get one going for days without having anything else to eat. That being said, water should be the most protected drink, and should always be in a safe state if it is open for people to drink.

 

The water condition at Squaw Valley had been compromised due to heavy rains and storms that had affected the region. Some of their water storage facilities got contaminated. The water was reported to have the E. coli bacteria and coliform bacteria. Since the case was reported, water has been treated and the wells that supply the upper part of the Ski Mountains is now improving. There are no instances of medical emergencies that have been reported. The skiers are advised not to drink any water from the resort until the safety of the water is approved by the relevant authorities. Skiing activities are still going on as long as the people observe the warning of avoiding the contaminated water.

 

In its statement, the Squaw water resort management said that the storm was responsible for contamination of the water facilities, specifically the High Camp and the Gold Coast storage. The contaminated water was only confined to these storage, not the entire facilities. There’s also no point when people used water from these two facilities.

After the ski management had gone through their regular check and inspection, they noticed the contamination and reported the matter to the relevant authorities. The two authorities in charge were Placer County Environmental Health and the Squaw Valley Public Service District. Other top experts on water safety have also been contacted to help in making the water safe for consumption.

 

Squaw Resort prioritizes on the safety of their customers, and the affected sections will remain closed until the issue is completely resolved. Meanwhile, the ski facility is offering all guests with bottled safe water for drinking. The resort is very grateful for the support they have received from the Placer County and the Squaw Valley Public Service District in handling this delicate matter.

 

 

Financial Executive David Giertz Addresses Elephant In The Room: Social Security

In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal financial firm executive David Giertz addressed social security and the reason why so many financial advisors don’t discuss it with their clients. The main reason he gave is that social security is a very complex issue that includes over 2,700 rules and regulations. Giertz explains on Instagram that financial advisors need to address this issue with their clients if for no other reason than because of two issues. The first issue is that social security makes up to 40% of the average retiree’s income so it’s simply too big of a financial issue to ignore. The second issue is that the results of research his firm, Nationwide Investment Services Corporation, has shown that many clients are willing to switch financial advisors if theirs does not discuss this all important issue.

EOS Revamps What We Think of When We Think of Lip Care

In saturated markets many product names become synonymous with the product they make. On example of this is Chapstick. Chapstick sells lip balm and everyone is familiar with their tubes of cylindrical lip care products. EOS (Evolution Of Smooth) decided to take the plunge into this market in an attempt to change the norm and streamline it into something more desirable to its target user.

The first step would be to figure out who exactly the Target was. Research provided important insight into that aspect. It showed that though Chapstick and other lip care companies tried to create a unisex product, the target market was dominated by women who use lip balms as part of their daily beauty regimen. They also interviewed women to find which aspects they liked, disliked, and what they would enjoy in a new product.

Utilizing this important information, EOS lip balm chose to appeal to the women who would likely be the ones using their product. To do this they revamped the boring tube for a more whimsical orb shape that is fun to apply and can more easily be found at the bottom of a purse. Couple that new visual appeal with fabulous new flavors and natural ingredients. EOS had created a winning combination- a $250 million dollar winning combination. https://evolutionofsmooth.ca/

They quickly rose to second place, just behind Burt’s Bees, as best-selling in the industry. This is a great accomplishment considering the staple of companies that have been around forever had become household names. They have solitarily transformed and driven growth in the oral care industry pushing it to new levels and in a new direction.

EOS can now be seen on Walmart stores,  splashed across fashion magazines and in the hands of celebrities. They currently sell over one million units a week and look forward to more success as the market is expected to increase steadily in the next few years. Part of that increase is due to the demand for more natural products. That is good news for EOS since natural is their specialty.

 

Auditing Fort Knox: Does US Money Reserve Have the Last Gold in America?

Regular financial audits are a normal thing for most corporations. Of course, Americans also want to know how much they have in their treasure chest: Fort Knox. This is run by the US Mint and is the nation’s official precious metals depository.

 

As a part of a Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request, the US Mint released its “Fort Knox Audit Documentation.” Was there any gold left in Fort Knox or is the US Money Reserve, the only place in America, which still has gold?

 

“Plenty of Gold at US Mint”

 

The “Financial Times” had said on February 11, 2017 that “much of the world’s excavated gold is thought to be in Fort Knox, but nobody can be sure, since the US government will not allow the auditors in.” According to the aforementioned released document, the “2016 US Official Gold Reserves” included 147,341,858 troy ounces of gold. That is quite a lot.

 

When the “World Gold Council” totaled all of the gold on Planet Earth on February 2, 2017, it showed that the United States had about 20% of the gold. The good news is that the US Mint has access to this and sends it products to the US Money Reserve for sale.

 

“Increasing Gold Demand”

 

All of this interest in the precious metal is great for those who own gold. Do you own gold? Would you like to own gold, like Fort Knox does?

 

Well, you can find numerous gold coins on the improved US Money Reserve website. The company realized that due to high demand, they needed to provide an easier way for investors to add the precious metal to their estates.

 

“Former US Mint Director Runs US Money Reserve”

 

The US Money Reserve is run by a former US Mint Director. Thus, they receive regular coin shipments from the US Mint. It might be one of the top retailers of these gold coins, with 500,000 satisfied customers.

 

There is plenty of gold in the hands of the US Mint. You can also check the user-friendly US Money Reserve website to add gold to your wealth portfolio.

Due to these reasons, John Hillman, NTC’s CEO, insisted that revising documents to check for the above mistakes is important before selling property. With tax status reports, tax status (plus) reports, assignment-verification report services and current owner reports available online, NTC will have provided solutions to the evolving mortgage industry.
