Bruce Levenson Isn’t Yet Finished In The Sale Of The Hawks Aftermath

Atlanta Hawks Basketball & Entertainment (AHBE) is in the middle of a court case regarding the sale they made back in early 2015. Bruce Levenson, along with the rest of AHBE decided to sell the team to Tony Ressler and several others, a transaction that was completed without any hitches, but they also had elected to buyout the contract for Danny Ferry, their former general manager. AHBE was enrolled under AIG insurance company at the time, and according to the policy they had at the time, the event of the sale entitled AHBE to file a claim with AIG to cover losses related to this buyout. But AIG is not honoring the claim so far, and Levenson and AHBE have decided to pursue legal action against them.

He is a graduate of Washington University as well as American University’s law school, as well as a former contributor to the now defunct Washington Star. He started his main business, Unified Communications Group right from his own apartment in 1977 when he published their first newsletter, Oil Express. The company grew into quite a large conglomerate of industry news, including energy, real estate, and technology.

Forbes billionaire Bruce Levenson bought the Atlanta Hawks in 2004, along with the Atlanta Thrashers who he sold off in 2011. He also has sat on the boards of many philanthropic organizations and non-profit groups, including starting the Center for Philanthropy and Non-Profit Leadership at the University of Maryland. He’s been most passionate about the Holocaust Memorial Museum, to which he has donated and been active in its education programs, in part because his mother-in-law is a survivor who has told her story to others.

 

The CRDA Unpaid $20 million loan is raising questions about New Brunswick Development Corporation

This past month, Middlesex Regional Development and Expansion Authority failed to pay back $1 million in interest and principle on the received $20 million loan from the Casino Reinvestment Development and Expansion Authority. For five years now, the Improvement Authority has already been in arrears, racking up more than $7 million in skipped payments.

The loan, made in 2005, took a long way in financing the construction of the Heldrich, the New Brunswick hotel and conference facility that was developed by the non-profit organization by the name New Brunswick Development Corporation. Read full report on pressofatlanticcity.com.

The Senate president, Stephen Sweeny, has continually touted the corporation as an example of what is usually done when public funds are channeled through private companies for large scale construction execution. The outfit for New Brunswick is also the very model of the Atlantic Development Corporation that is a sister company expecting to oversee over 200 million in private and public funding – including the $19.5 million private and government funding- for the development of the Gateway project in the Chelsea section of the city.

Both companies are headed by the same attorney, Chris Paladino, who arranged for the transfer f the $20 million Heldrich loan. “CRDA will be eventually paid in full, but this will take longer than we expected,” he said this past week.

The Heldrich building, which was opened in 2007 at the beginning of the global economic crisis, is still struggling to attract customers. This past year, it had an occupancy rate of 63.5 percent, and its largest tenant was Johnson & Johnson, whose executives are sitting on the board of directors of the New Brunswick Development Incorporation. The hotel is struggling with raising enough money to run itself and pay for its debt.

Billy McFarland Is The Millennial Man

Billy McFarland is the millennial man. He has been able to fashion the perfect platform for millennials to come together as a force and receive discounts and perks via his Black Card program with his company Magnises.

Formed in 2013, the company is designed to provide special perks and discounts at various restaurants, clubs, bars, fitness centers, travel opportunities and events. Members can also schedule meetings and special events on a local basis for their businesses, organizations and even for general purposes.

The program is similar to that which American Express offers, except it is geared more to a local setting, which millennials love. Millenials also love networking together, as they gain valuable information and connections which help them in their businesses and careers, as well as politically.

The Black Card is the key, as people carry their debit and credit cards with them all of the time, the Black Card is a simple addition. Designed to hold all of the original card’s information, the Black Card is then used for discounts and perks at various venues on a local basis. Perks may include a free bottle at a restaurant or special seating at an event.

For example, Tesla recently hosted a test drive for members at a race track where new prototype cars were made available for an afternoon.

As of year end 2015, Magnises had over 10,000 members in the New York City and Washington DC areas, with plans to expand soon to Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and London. A recent infusion of cash of $3 million from venture capital is going to fuel the expansion plans.

According to Bloomberg, Billy McFarland is no stranger to successful business startups. At the tender age of 13 he started his own company which matched a local service company with qualified clients.

As a freshman student at Bucknell University, he formed Spling, a firm that uses a unique approach in the redesigning URLs into a graphic mosaic, making the URL more distinctive. The company is still in business, and Billy McFarland is the CEO.

The future is bright for Magnises, as millennials are wildly enthusiastic about the Black Card.

Securus Has Given Me An Easy Way To Serve The Community

I am the guy in the community who checks in with all the young people who are in jail. They end up in jail because it is something that is happening right now, and I think that using Securus was the smartest thing I have done. I am calling these boys on Securus almost every day because they need to have an adult that will talk to them, and I think that the only way to make that work is to be sure that I have spoken with people who will be able to learn from their mistakes.

 

They need to know this stuff because it is the only way they can call in and get in touch with people, and I think it matters more than anything that I teach these boys that we have not forgotten them. They are less likely to go back to crime if they know that someone cares, and that is why I am trying to get them on the line with Securus all the time. This is a lot more healthy, and it helps them be sure that they are more than just a number.

 

These people will have better lives because I have interacted with them on Securus many times before. They are learning about what I think will make their lives better, and I know that a lot of people will start to see the difference it is making. Everyone who is in need in the community should make sure that they are talking through Securus because they might just find someone who need to be supported because their life has gone sideways due to crime.
