GM Contract Dispute Leads Bruce Levenson To Court

January 5th, 2017

The sale of the Atlanta Hawks NBA franchise to a consortium headed by the billionaire Tony Ressler for a reported $730 million by Forbes may have brought an end to the ownership of the team by a group headed by Maryland based business leader Bruce Levenson, but the head of UCG is still fighting insurance giant AIG over a claim made prior to the sale of the historic team. Former Hawks General Manager Danny Ferry is the subject of the claim after Levenson’s legal team stated an insurance claim made over the mutual termination of his contract had not been responded to by AIG since the completion of the sale of the franchise to Ressler.

Legal papers filed with a Fulton County court detail the timeline of the insurance claim, but do not reveal the level of financial reward being sought by the Atlanta Hawks Basketball & Entertainment LLC consortium; papers that have been made public do state the Levenson led group is seeking a 50 percent financial penalty against AIG and all legal costs to become the responsibility of the New Hampshire based insurance giant. AIG were notified prior to the termination of Danny Ferry’s contract about comments relating to a constructive dismissal insurance claim.

Over the course of his career Bruce Levenson has created a number of different businesses beginning in the 1970s when the former journalist established the United Communications Group alongside his business partner Ed Peskowitz. Beginning as a new form of oil industry newsletter the business has now become a supplier of real time information to industrial sectors from around the world; communications technology developed for UCG has been used by Bruce Levenson to create new business opportunities, including the TechTarget company and the popular GasBuddy app that provides information for general consumers.

Sujit Chouldry On Comparative Constitutional Law

December 16th, 2016

It is very important to know the law and the constitution. This is not just so one could avoid breaking the law. This is also so that people could protect themselves from violations of their rights. One thing that is certain is that there are people that are willing to violate the rights of others for plenty of different reasons. This is why it is important to know the law and have a lot of research when it comes to the constitution. One thing that is very frustrating is when people get their rights violated in such a ruthless and mean spirited way.

It can be very complicated to study the law. However, there is a source that people could learn from. This is Sujit Choudhry. He is someone that knows a lot about comparative constitutional law. He is also someone that is involved in the advice of building a constitution in countries such as Africa, Egypt, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Ukraine and plenty of other countries. One thing that a lot of these countries have in common is that they have come from a phase where human life was not treated with care and respect. As a result, people have found themselves faced with inhumane treatment from the authorities.

Sujit Choudhry addressed plenty of issues in the countries. Among the different issues that he addresses is the rights of the minority. Often times, the minority is treated as someone who is of lesser value than the ones that make up the majority group. This results in a lot of problems that the minority faces in society. This is why Sujit Choudhry works in this field. He wants to protect the rights of all people so that there will be equality.

As countries develop, there need to be regulations when it comes to the treatment of people. When people are given equal treatment, things are more likely to go very smooth in the country. However, discrimination and other forms of inequality are issues that need to be taken care of as soon as possible. This is so that everyone can have a chance in the country they live in.

Hippeas Bringing Tasty But Healthy Snacks To A Shop Near You

December 13th, 2016

Livio Bisterzo Launches HippeasIf you haven’t heard of Hippeas yet, expect that to change very quickly. This health food company, led by CEO Livio Bisterzo is relatively new, but the firm is already getting a rather large footprint in its industry.

Hippeas ( announced this fall it was launching a line of Chickpea Puffs that are not only healthy and tasty, but is also going to be working to give back to the less fortunate. In September, the company announced its new line of Chickpea puffs is partnering with Farm Africa, an organization that is working to end hunger and bring wealth to Eastern Africa.

Hippeas says that for each pack of these snacks sold, they will be donating a portion of those sales to Farm Africa. As far as the actual food goes, the firm is offering a number of different flavors that consumers can try out, such as Far Out Fajita, Pepper Power and others.

The firm has clearly gotten the attention from the American marketplace already, considering it recently signed a deal to be featured as one of the “grab and go” snacks that are at the checkout counter at Starbucks’ restaurants. It appears all of this is quite the success story for Livio Bisterzo, who first founded Green Park Holdings in 2015.

While the CEO considers himself an entrepreneur for his entire life, it is Green Park Holdings that allowed him to bring Hippeas to life. He has made it clear over the course of his storied career that he considers it equally important to make sure that the company isn’t just looking to make a buck.

Bisterzo has made it clear he wants to be a CEO that is looking out for other people, both through healthy snacks that aren’t going to cause the kind of problems we see from Snickers and potato chips and through being able to donate money to good causes that might otherwise fall through the cracks.

Bisterzo is working hard to make sure his company is leaving a footprint on the American public that is always a positive one. He wants his company’s products to leave that positive taste as well.

Markus Rothkranz Weight Loss Special Epic Finale

Markus Rothkranz has written a number of books on the subject of health. One book, “Heal Yourself 101”, tells a lot about the type of work and research Rothkranz is involved with. Checking out his YouTube channel brings all his brilliance to life in full living color. Markus Rothkranz simply promotes healthier living and does so by noting a few very simple steps people can take. Sadly, people interested in dieting and weight loss have a tendency to look towards more complicated approaches. Such paths have a tendency to lead to disappointment.

Markus Rothkranz is a fan and proponent of the raw food diet. This type of diet is exactly what its name proclaims. Vegetables, for example, are not cooked in any way. Eating vegetables in their raw form is done for the purpose of maintaining the healthy nutrients and not ruining them by heating/cooking.

Rothkranz remains a great proponent for the raw food diet. In addition to looking healthy, Rothkranz is highly charismatic. A lot of people who otherwise would not be interested in the raw food diet, or healthy living in general, may be drawn to doing so thanks to the invigorating way Rothkranz promotes proper eating and living.

It would be hard to ignore the fact that Markus Rothkranz maintains a very impressive physique. He is extremely lean and defined. Amazingly, he looks far better now in his 50’s than he did when he was in his 20’s. Diet and exercise are the two main reasons for his incredible looks. Rothkranz does note that when he was much younger, he ate a lousy diet. The diet did not exactly contribute to a feeling of holistic wellness. Rothkranz did something that few people are willing to do. He reassessed his physical condition and lifestyle choices and made changes. Switching over to a raw foods diet was one decision he definitely does not regret making.

Living healthier and making various self-improvements definitely do lead to happiness. The raw food diet is about more than looking good. It really is about living better and that will make people happier. Markus Rothkranz is doing a wonderful job promoting this cause.

How To Be Limitless_ The Only Way to Freedom

Capitol Anesthesiology and You

December 7th, 2016

Following its 1973 founding in Austin, TX, the Capitol Anesthesiology Association

(CAA) is one of the country’s largest private practices offering anesthesiology services. In addition to providing patient access to over 80 physicians and 130 Certified Registered Nurse Anestesists (CRNAs), Capitol’s network of care extends to over 20 medical facilities in the greater Austin area including major trauma units, high-acuity hospitals, and numerous ambulatory surgery centers.

Capitol’s team of physicians are either currently certified or actively pursing certification by the American Board of Anesthesiology. In addition, many physicians have completed specialised training in technical areas such as pediatric, cardiothoracic, and obstetric anesthesiology in order to expand the range of services available to patients. The result is comprehensive, full-spectrum care that regularly ranks near the top of nationally accepted industry standards.

A critical component of the care provided involves the holistic, team approach of highly trained CRNAs that work hand in hand with anesthesiologists to provide a safe, comfortable experience. This also includes an experienced cohort of registered nurses, anesthesia technicians, and administrative staff that complements the care provided by Capitol’s MDs and CRNAs. The Capitol team works with individuals and families to address questions regarding anesthesia, insurance, or related matters throughout the process. The commitment to top-notch patient care is demonstrated by numerous patient testimonials and CAA’s membership in the Anesthesia Quality Institute (AQI). This allows CAA to not only be a leader in providing high-quality care for patients but also to help others to establish best-practice protocols.

Magnises: An Offline Social Network

December 6th, 2016

A Solution to the Isolation Millenials Feel

Most millennials tend to stick to their clicks. However, most of them also happen to be quite busy. Thus making weekend plans is not usually an option. In fact, most of them are never sure if they will be free on the weekend. It has led to a lifestyle where people rarely do anything fun on the weekends anymore. Billy McFarland saw this problem and realized he had to do something.

Billy McFarland formed Magnises that is based on a card. The card gives members the benefits of joining social media into the physical world. Essentially, a member of this club gets exclusive access to great places that are otherwise hard to access.

The club has been a major hit with young people. Over eight percent of all current members of Magnises are between 21 and 29 years. They are from all industries of life, which makes it easy to find new and interesting people outside what one is used to.

An invite-only black card for millennials

Some of the Perks
One of the perks is that members get access to an exclusive clubhouse. The interior of the clubhouse is beautifully designed with leather couches and contemporary art. It is a place where card holders can meet all day, watch sports or have a drink.

Most other perks available are social based. Magnises behind the card has gotten into over 50 partnerships with businesses, to give members great deals and access. For instance, members can access secret menus in hotels, members’ only events, access to private trainers and discounts.

One of the perks introduced in 2016 is the HotelPass. The feature allows members to access any of The Dream Hotels locations within NY for about $79 a night. A night at these places typically costs about $250 a night. Another perk introduced in 2016 is the WorkPass. The feature allows members to access co-working facilities at a location where they also host their offices.

About the Founder

Billy McFarland is a tech entrepreneur with an eye for the unconventional. He studied computer engineering degree at Bucknell University. However, he left after half a year and formed a consulting firm. Shortly after, he founded Magnises. He has always been entrepreneurial. He had already formed a company at 13 years of age. The company would match designers to clients.

Joining the Club

Club membership of Magnises is assigned via referral. Prospective members are invited to hand out at the clubhouse where they are vetted. If they do not make the cut, they cannot get a Magnises card. To remain part of the club, members have to pay a $250 fee annually. However, the small fee is totally worth all the benefits members get.

The Card is Not a Credit Card

The card is not a form of credit card. Rather it only transfers information on the debit and credit cards, thus facilitating payments. Embers’ debit and credit cards continue to work as normal. Millennials should capitalize on it, especially if their social life is failing.

He Levenson pursued a bachelor’s degree in Arts from Washington University and a J.D. from American University.

He has involved in different charities in U.S and served as the President of the I Have a Dream Foundation.

Bruce Levenson, Ed Peskowitz, and Tore Foreman purchased the Atlanta Hawks LLC (formerly known as Atlanta Spirit LLC) from Turner Broadcasting on 2004. Since inception, Mr. Levenson worked as the Hawks Governor, the Managing Partner, and a member of the NBA Board of Governors.

According to ESPN, Antony Resler-Grant Hill Group won the bidding and purchased Mr. Levenson’s, and other investors stake at $850 million.

Danny Ferry, the former Hawks General Manager, made the claims. AHBE had an insurance cover of losses related to employment including wrongful termination and workplace torts. The lawsuit states the “insurance company did not acknowledge that it had triggered the policy and they also refused to accept the coverage of the same.” The lawsuit seeks to give an additional 50% penalty for unpaid losses and the coverage of the attorneys’ fees. The current Hawks ownership spokesperson claimed that they were aware of the complaint, but they have did not intend to get involved with the case.

Markus Rothkranz on How to Eat Healthy When Eating Out

November 19th, 2016

This is a fun and interesting, yet still useful video, on eating out. People enjoy eating out. And sometimes your social life demands that you eat out. How can you stay on a healthy raw food vegan diet when you go to a normal restaurant, not a raw food restaurant? To demonstrate, Markus Rothkranz and Cara Brotman go to The Cheesecake Factory. That’s not the typical hangout for raw food vegans.

The key is in the menu. It will list the main dishes, the meat, chicken and seafoods. Don’t look at that, look at what’s next to it. All those entrees come with side dishes. Therefore, you know all those healthy foods are in the kitchen, so you just order the side dishes. You can order a large plate of salad, together with the various side dishes.

For example, on The Cheesecake Factory menu he finds artichokes, olives, garlic and pine nuts under a pasta dish. A chicken entree has fresh asparagus. From the pizza section, he orders the healthy toppings such as pineapple and red onion, not the crust.

Cara orders a salad with mango, cashews, avocado, tomato, onion, pepper and macadamia nuts. He orders arugula salad with Marcona almonds, lemon, golden raisins, endive and olive oil. Those orders are not on the menu of course, but they put everything together on their plates. You know the kitchen has it, because the menu does list them as side dishes or as the food that goes with the main entrees.

Rothkranz points out that some of the vegetables Cara ordered were steamed by the restaurant, but said that wasn’t enough to get upset about. Just stick with eating things found in nature, not bread or pasta, and no pizza.

He also advises taking a small pill container to the restaurant with you. It should contain in one section Celtic sea salt. In the other section, bring cayenne pepper. That will help bring out the flavor in the foods you order. Also, take plenty of digestive enzymes.

Because your meal isn’t part of the menu, the restaurant has to figure out the price, but the fancy restaurants are willing to do that. And it’s actually cheaper because you are not eating the meat and seafood. Therefore, your meals will be less expensive than the usual entrees.

Eliminating Secret Food Additives With Markus Rothkranz Cleansing Techniques

November 17th, 2016

The weight epidemic in the modern world is visually noticeable, and presents plenty of challenges. There are innumerable ways in which people develop inaccurate ways of thinking about weight gain, weight loss, and general nutrition. The fact is, true healthy eating is illusive. Markus Rothkranz is working to illuminate the public to the falsehoods in food advertising and fitness marketing. His radical, but healthy methods help all people change the ways they think about eating, exercising, and planning a healthy modern lifestyle.

Unnatural additives in food products create degrees of physiological stress. These additives range from food preservatives, to plastic chemicals that leach into drinking water when a person uses standard water bottles. Juices that claim to be all-natural have industrial chemicals and sugars that counteract fat loss efforts. Low-fat foods have substitutionary fats that create unhealthy conditions in the blood, while claiming to have healthy benefits. The fact is, healthy eating and dietary plans can be sabotaged with hidden factors that can cause greater health concerns than obvious advertised factors.

Food addictions are real, and they have a definite role in the way modern people shop, eat, cook, and think about health. Sugars, trans fats, and flavor chemicals are added to foods to produce addictive responses in consumers. This includes foods that are marketed as healthy, or fat-busting. Markus Rothkranz has created a series of informative dieting and healthy living tutorials that expose many of these hidden food strategies. Learning how companies manipulate consumers to believe that these foods are healthy is a powerful way to eliminate their negative effects.

As an example, refined sugar is exposed by Markus Rothkranz as a powerful substance that is used by food producers, and plays an extremely powerful role in negating fitness and health efforts. Sugar is highly addictive, yet is used in almost every processed food. It is labelled in various ways, but has the same dire effects on health. Sugar, and other common additives, work in contrary ways to real health goals. The only way to avoid these additives is to learn from a candid and honest source like Markus Rothkranz. Great fitness goals and plans have wonderful motives and strategies, but they are incomplete without a revealing survey of the true ways foods are produced and marketed to consumers.
