Under his supervision, many people were able to benefit from his counsel and his advice. His passage will be mourned by all those who were lucky enough to work with him in some capacity.

He was able to start his own division within the bank where he put together important deals that he personally oversaw.

How a Skeptical Hair Enthusiast Fell in Love with Wen by Chaz June 22, 2016

It is hard to believe what is seen on television, especially when a product is claiming all these benefits. Being incredulous is not inconceivable since an advertisement is meant to sell a product to the public. So, of course, some people tend to be a little skeptical. One fashion and hair enthusiast talked to Bustle about her experience with a product she was sort of skeptical about, which was WEN hair by Chaz.
Not many people know about Dean Chaz who is the founder of Wen by Chaz. The formula was something he promote on guthy-renker and used personally and on his most precious clients. Chaz has been in the hair industry for years. He has been able to style stars and other socialites. Chaz has definitely made a splash in the hair styling world, which is the reason many people have admired him and why people were interested in his hair product. The product promised to combine everything from a shampoo, hair conditioner, deep conditioner, and an overall natural beautifier.

Those claims on a QVC ad caught the interest of the hair enthusiast who spoke to Bustle. Her trial was to be a whole week, nothing more and nothing less. She followed the directions as stated on the product. This was a bit strange to her because she was asked to use a lot of the product, which was more shampoo than she would use normally. Of course, she did not want to alter the results, so she followed the directions. The immediate results did come out great. Her hair did look good but only for a day because the next day it was greasy and unappealing. Not a great sign, but she stayed the course. After the third and fourth day, she started to see lasting results. Her hair started to look great, and by the time she was done with her experiment, she was ready for more Wen hair by Chaz.

Compliance Officers are becoming increasingly important June 17, 2016

What does a compliance officer do? The title sounds incredibly important, but very few people actually know what a compliance officer does. The job has only been around for a short amount of time, but the field is growing. The role of a compliance officer is to implement a program that prevents regulatory and ethical problems, and to find and then solve the problems that have already occurred. Compliance officers use several tools to ensure that everything is done properly. They use audits, educational programs, investigation, and risk assessments. The compliance officer field emerged just twenty years ago, but it is rapidly growing. When it started there were basically no compliance officers and now there are thousands of compliance officers around the country. The job will only keep growing as more government regulations pile on. Heavily regulated industries like banking will need extra compliance officers to navigate through this incredibly difficult regulatory environment. Businesses are going to look for experts that know how to prevent problems from occurring, so they can stay focused on their business. There are many extremely qualified compliance officers throughout the business community, but one of the most talented names in the field is Helane Morrison. Helane Morrison has had an extremely long and interesting career. Helane earned a B.S. in journalism from Northwestern and she then received her law degree from California Berkeley. Her backgrounds in both journalism and law allowed her to become extremely successful in the business world. During her career, Helane has worked in several different roles. She started her career as a lawyer. During this time, she represented many clients who were in trouble for not following the proper regulations. Many of these clients were sued by the SEC and had to sink serious resources into defending themselves. In 1996, Helane started working for the SEC. Working for the SEC allowed Helane to witness even more cautionary tales. She knew that many issues were completely preventable. Helane was offered a job at Hall Capital Partners, and she jumped at the opportunity to change the company for the better. Today, Helane is the Chief Compliance Officer for Hall Capital and she works constantly to prevent any issues from occurring at the company. She does a great job, and Hall Capital has had almost no trouble with the SEC. Compliance officers are a major asset to any company. They can prevent issues from happening, so companies can focus on reaching record profits.

Playful Colors And Designs By Jessica Boskoff June 16, 2016

When it comes to color coordination, Jessica Boskoff knows how to pair the right colors together for a beautiful look at a wedding or any other event. She is the owner of Twenty Three Layers and believes in a playful approach when working with colors. A recent photo shoot shows just what Jessica sees when she imagines colors blending together as she has an eye for pastels and delicate arrangements. http://www.theperfectpalette.com/2016/03/stylist-spotlight-jessica-boskoff.html

Fun colors were used throughout the shoot to highlight the brand’s new look. There are also a few sweet treats and props with a bit of style incorporated into the shoot. From a silver chest to a vintage yellow chair, there is a little bit of everything in the picture that comes together for a beautiful setting. Displays of donuts with pink icing and sprinkles and cupcakes with mint green icing adorn a small table as they sit on white pedestals. It’s no wonder these colors are used as Jessica’s favorite colors are aqua and mint green. However, she does enjoy almost any pastel color as they are fun to work with.

In the shoot, you can see a small stool beside the chair that captures these colors in the form of pillows in yellow, pink and aqua. To add a different kind of pattern to the shoot, a pair of black and white high-heeled shoes are placed in front of the stool with the pillows. When Jessica decorates for events and photo shoots, she uses a touch of playfulness and whimsy to bring out the fun of the event. Pink peonies are used on a table along with a vase of white flowers. Jessica enjoys being a designer because she’s able to express herself through unique styles. Decorating and styling work in all aspects of her life, such as entertaining family and friends or decorating her home.

A Brief Synopsis of the SEC Program June 7, 2016

After the Great Depression, the Congress saw the need to overhaul the financial regulations of the United States. This was done through enactment of Consumer Protection Act and Dodd-Frank Wall Street Restructuring in 2010. The whistle blower platform is among the major reforms initiated by the Doll-Frank Law.

Main motives of the SEC Program

Basically, the program was introduced to provide protection to the employees and offer a financial spurs for employees. Following the financial incentives given to individuals, they could now report all incidences of violation to the Securities and Exchange Commission. Again, the Federal Security law was given the mandate to deal with cases of employment violation.

To respond to this momentous legislation, The Labaton Sucharow law firm was founded shortly after the enactment. This law firm was formed to ultimately focus on providing protective strategies and finding justice to the Securities and Exchange Commission whistleblowers.

The SEC foundation comprises of high profile professionals who have a vast experience and skills in different fields. For instance, the support team is made up of competent financial analysts, skilled accounts, and forensic investigator equipped with unsurpassed knowledge in state and federal laws. This team works together to offer unparalleled legal representation to all whistleblower members.

The former Assistant director, Jordan A. Thomas, who is also the Assistant Chief Litigation council in the Enforcement division at SEC leads the entire Practice team. During his tenure, Mr. Jordan saw the development of this program by leading the process of proposal drafting and implementation of final rules.

How the Legible Whistle Blowers Benefit From this Program

For all successful Securities Exchange Commission Actions, sanction exceeding $1 million, 10 to 30 percent of the financial sanctions collected should be paid to all legible whistleblowers. This is according to the rules provided by SEC program. On meeting the above threshold, whistle blowers become legible to get extra rewards that are mainly based on the collected monetary sanctions. All the additional rewards are also given in relation to other sanction actions that are reported by respective law enforcement bodies.

Since some whistleblowers are very aggressive, the Dodd-Frank Act has formulated some strategies to protect such whistleblowers from unfair acts of employers. With good representation from experienced attorneys, whistleblowers can now report securities violation anonymously. Normally, initial case evaluations and consultation is free and highly guarded by attorneys to protect the interest of clients. Mostly, whistleblowers are discouraged to disclose details related to the personal identification of the convicted violators. Since this is an international foundation, whistle blowers can get translation assistance upon request. http://www.secwhistlebloweradvocate.com/program/program-overview

Learn more about Andy Wirth: http://www.sierrasun.com/news/business/17254546-113/squaw-valleys-andy-wirth-appointed-chair-of-reno and https://www.facebook.com/FriendsOfSquawValley/posts/10152191670133708

In the interview, he said that the company he is CEO of, Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, made it through fine, but they were down just over 20 percent from last year.

He stated that the company was in such solid shape financially that even if they achieved the same results as this year for a prolonged period, they could survive indefinitely. He seemed to be very confident in his companies ability to withstand the volatile and unpredictable weather patterns that have been predicted for years to come.

He is actually the grandson of Conrad Wirth, who is the former US National Park Service Director. He has been the recipient of many awards for his contributions to the industry.

Venezuela Sells Gold Reserves May 27, 2016

Venezuela has been crumbling before the eyes of the world, and it seems each day the situation worsens says expert Adrian Jose Velasquez Figueroa. Another business, another food, another industry disappears as the economy continues on a roller coaster that seems to have no end. People wait in line for endless hours to get food, barely enough to get by for a day. Parents hope to find a way to feed their children, people hope to survive. The country is starving, and as the situation worsens, no one can seem to put an end to the struggle.

As the citizens line up for their rations they are surrounded by military and police in riot gear, unsure if they will have to contain a dangerous situation. A facebook netizen recently posted a series of pictures that outline the dire situation and put faces with the images that have been conjured by all the recent media, they can be viewed here.
While the country puts all its hopes in a rise of oil prices, the resource they have an abundance of and depend on to generate a steady income, they are lining store shelves with whatever they find available and doing what they can to simply stay afloat. Recently, they sold $1.7 billion of their precious gold reserves to attempt to repay debts that are mounting. Between February and March they sold roughly 40 tonnes. They are still deep in debt and it is expected that by next year inflation in the country will rise to 1,642 percent. Venezuela sits on more oil reserves than Saudi Arabia, but even with the price of oil on a slow but steady climb, it won’t be enough to see any difference for years and years to come.

George Soros Philanthropic Efforts Provides Good Karma

It is better to tell the truth from the start. Lies have a way of catching up to you. Apparently this simple life lesson was never taught to conservative activist, James O’Keefe. He when he tried to infiltrate a group led by George Soros called the Open Society Foundation.

The entire incident was all caught on a recorded message. O’Keefe, using the alias “Victor Kesh,” forgot to hang up the phone before revealing his entire plan to his cronies. This shocking and pathetic scam was easily discovered due to O’Keefe’s carelessness. His guilt was not hard to prove.

The recording identified O’Keefe using the name “Victor Kesh” to disguise his identification. He originally stated he wanted to get involved with Soros’s Open Society Foundation and help fight for European values. “Kesh” identified himself as a Hungarian-American.

“Kesh” ended his message by requesting a return phone call. Once “Kesh” thought he had hung up the phone, Soros’s recording machine continued to record “Kesh’s” conversation on the other end. He was over-heard saying, “Don’t say anything before I hang up the phone.”

O’Keefe proceeded to talk about his plan, which included recruiting other people to make approximately 100 phone calls similar to the one he just made on http://www.georgesoros.com/philanthropy/.

He also planned to use Soros LinkedIn page to use information there against them. “Kesh” then realized that if he did that his own LinkenIn page would be revealed to Soros. His knowledge of technology made him look foolish besides revealing his devious plan. Chris Stone, the president of Open Society listened to the recording. Stone was appalled by their attempt at this scam. She also stated she couldn’t help but find the humor in it.

George Soros, founder of Open Society, is well known in over 100 countries. This unique philanthropic organization began in 1979. Since then Open Society has helped cover the cost of education for thousands of refugees and people from marginalized groups.

George Soros also was involved with an international effort to bring to light natural resource extraction companies who used under the table payoffs to tyrants who were violent and led to world political unrest. George Soros’ independence and compassion has been used for positive goals. This must have insulated his company with good karma against O’Keefe and his plan to ruin Open Society.
