Questions Arising After New Devco Deal Developments

According to the Press of Atlantic City article, the recent dealings about a deal involving Devco has started to face additional questions and scrutiny. Any time a real estate deal is brought to light there are many questions that can arise, but the one involving Devco starts to look like there are potential failures as well as consequences that no-one can quite put their finger on. Even though not all of the details have yet to be released, this is an issue that needs to be taken care of as quickly as possible. If not, the price tag to the tune of millions of dollars already is only going to further balloon and have additional negative consequences and reprecussions.
To make a long story short, the problem being faced is that the Middlesex County Improvement Authority failed to pay out $1 million on a loan of $20 million for a new hotel and conference center. The problem isn’t just that $1 million is currently in question, it is that there are already $7 million in arrears on a loan that was originally made in 2005. Any time that much money is up for grabs, it can be a very questionable deal indeed. When you consider the position that Devco is now in as a result of these missed payments, people are starting to worry on both sides of the coin.

The biggest questions for Devco is that when will the actual payments occur? In the meantime, the bankrollers of the project, the contractors, and the suppliers are all out money until the promised payments come through. When you put down your word and actually want the other party to come through and work with you, it can be hard to succeed when you back out of the deal and the original terms. Devco is now on the hook until this issue is resolved and then Devco can move forward.

 

George Soros Argues For EU Action in Ukraine

George Soros Ukraine, the chairman of Soros Fund Management and a well-established figure in the hedge fund industry, has repeatedly come out publicly in favor of decisive EU action in Ukraine. Soros believes that EU action is necessary to counter the ambitions of Russia in Eastern Europe, and particularly in eastern Ukraine and Crimea. Russian president Vladimir Putin has proven that one of his major foreign policy goals is to destabilize Ukraine and invalidate the revolutionary government attempting to reform the country’s civil service and federal governance. The European Union, as the other powerful state organization in the region, must act to ensure that Ukraine has the freedom to decide its own future.

The new government in Ukraine is in desperate need of financial assistance, and there are few potential sources for this monetary infusion other than Europe. Soros argues, in forums such as the New York Times and other major news sources, that without this financial windfall, Ukraine will be unable to combat Russia’s destabilizing influence. The loss of Ukraine could lead to an advanced Russian presence on the world stage or even a general reconstruction of the Soviet-era “iron curtain” sphere of influence in Eastern Europe. Allowing Russia to coerce its neighbors into trade agreements and pacts by using overt force sets a dangerous precedent in the region, and could diminish the ability of the EU to influence its eastern neighbors.

George Soros also talks extensively about the need to transform the perception of the Russian population. Although the ability of outside actors to do this is questionable, largely because of the outsized influence of Russian state-sponsored news and television programs in the country, Soros claims that the Ukrainian situation can be used as a signal to the Russian populace by the West.

George Soros – Business Leader, Philanthropist

If, he argues, the EU provides Ukraine with the stimulus package that it needs in order to survive and combat Russian military and political aggression, it will be more difficult for Putin to demonize the West to the Russian people. Russia is currently in the midst of a financial crisis and a capital flows drain, and Putin is effectively claiming that this calamity is the result of Western political strategy and banking collusion. If the EU demonstrates its financial commitment to Ukraine, the Russian people will be forced to confront an example of active Western financial assistance right at their doorstep.

Transforming Russia from a foe into a friend is, of course, sure to be a difficult task, but the short-term goals of Soros’ strategy are not nearly so far-fetched. Ukraine is utilizing democratic elections and tools to attempt a massive transformation in its society — the European Union is obliged to encourage and abet this transition into truly democratic rule. One of the best ways to do this, as George Soros and others have repeatedly said, is to give the fledgling government the financial freedom to focus on nation-building. The future of the EU project and Russian-Western relations may hang in the balance.

Goettl Invests in Vets Job Futures

Originally published in PRNewswire, Goodrich has made the news for their new opportunities to help vets get the education and job training to help the transition home easier. Goettl Air Conditioning in Nevada is making sure to train the top talent and help veterans out at the same time. Many veterans have a difficult time finding employment or knowing what to do when they come home.

Goodrich started this scholarship to help ensure those who are looking for employment can get the training they need and be able to buy the tools for the job. Not only does he help to fund their education, Goodrich provides a fund that allows them to purchase the tools needed for their new jobs. The scholarship is provided to students at the College of Southern Nevada who are enrolled in the two year applied science in air conditioning technology program. The other is the Post 9/11 veterans tool award, which allots money to vets to help them start their careers in HVAC.

Goodrich fully believes those who come out of the armed services make good employees, and he wants to help anyway he can. Dennis Soukup and Goodrich worked together on this scholarship and award out of experience. They both remember starting out in HVAC, having the tools deducted from their checks. They wanted vets to start out on a good note with their new careers.

Goettl Air Conditioning originally started servicing the Las Vegas community in 1968. Due to the recession, the company left the community in 2007. Once it was purchased by Goodrich in 2007, it came back in 2016. Goodrich, originally from the area, was excited to come home. He went out with his father on those late night calls and remember holding the flashlight. His father was his inspiration in starting the vets scholarship and tool award.

Skout Does Survey About Colleges

Social media networking and communication app Skout has compiled a list of the top ten most friendliest colleges in the USA. The list was compiled based on data the company researched among users aged 18-24 years old. The main criteria used to determine the friendliest college town in the survey was how frequently users communicated with other new users through its app. Skout analyzed a full year of information to get a complete picture and not just a “monthly” snapshot of a college town.

Here are the results for the top ten most friendliest college towns according to a year’s of research done by Skout. At first place, was Madison, Wisconsin which is famous for its large public university as well as several small other ones. Number two, was surprisingly the metropolis of Los Angeles, California. Taking third place, was the big apple in New York, which came as a surprise as the city is famous for its coldness. Number four and five were Ann Arbor, Michigan and Chicago, Illinois. The inclusion of Chicago at number five was a big surprise as most big cities are not known for being particularity friendly when compared to the smaller college towns.

Towards the bottom of the list came San Francisco, California at number six, followed by Boulder, Colorado and Phoenix, Arizona at number seven and eight. Finishing at number nine, was Philadelphia, Pennsylvania which is well known for its large amount of higher education institutions. Number ten was Dallas, Texas.

Skouts research and surveys also revealed other interesting insights. The city with the most colleges in and around its area in the entire country was Boston, Massachusetts. It finished number twelve in the list of the all time most friendliest college towns. According to Skout the friendliest college age men are found in Boulder, Colorado. The friendliest college age women are in Madison, Wisconsin. Los Angeles, California was the city that was deemed the most generous. Young adults in that area sent more gifts to each other than many major cities combined.

Skout also asked questions to current and prospective college age students. More than 50% say that making a friend at a university is easier than while being in school. At the same time, over 50% of incoming freshman say they had concerns about being able to make friends when they arrive at campus. The fears of the freshman are allayed by the fact that Skout found almost three quarters of all new students make a close friend within a week of their first semester at college.

Skout is an app that connects people from all over the world and lets them communicate with each other and share photos. It is available as a free download and works on the iOS, Android and windows devices. The app was developed in 2007 and has steadily grown in its user base and capabilities.

Venezuela News

Professor Alejandro Velasco Provides Insight on the Economic Disaster in Venezuela

Socialism seems to be ineffective to prevent and control economic disasters in economies around the world. My Space expert sees the causes of troubled economies have been blamed on old government policies, bad leadership, and corruption. Global economists and professionals are asked by the media, concerned citizens, and governments the reasons behind economic downturns. According to Huffington Post, Alejandro Velasco, author and professor at New York University was asked by the WorldPost his expertise about the economic crisis in Venezuela.

 

Mr. Velasco believes the reasons behind the Venezuela downturn are “historical and contemporary.” The historical reason is because of the country’s dependence on one commodity, which is oil. He explained, the government is too dependent on imports and overspends when the oil industry is favorable. Another reason, the government inability to control its currency. Lack of control causes corruptive activities, such as production disincentives, purchasing incentives, and hoarding, Mr. Velasco stated.

 

The economic crisis in Venezuela is worsening says expert Danilo Diaz, and expected to get even worst by the end of 2016. The people are left with power outages, lack of food supply & basic products, and very low water supply, due a drought in the country. Venezuelans and the government are going without electricity in their homes and governmental buildings. Professor Alejandro Velasco believes the historical and contemporary reasons for the country’s economic disaster has caused the country to suffer for decades.
