The ownership group of Atlanta Hawks is working in order to finalize selling of their team. This will be sold to a group that is owned by equity and investment fund manager, Antony Ressler, who is a billionaire.

There is no formal announcement as yet about the deal as the sale is still not complete.

The Antony Ressler-Grant Hill group includes Grant Hill who is a former NBA player. It also includes Jesse Itzler who is the co-founder of Marquis Jet. They would be buying this team from Bruce Levenson, and Michael Gearon Jr., and the other investors. According to Forbes.com, they are going to pay $850 million for it. All the NBA owners have to approve of this sale of the team. No one is expecting any kind of disagreement in this.

Antony Ressler has already announced that he is feeling thrilled as well as honored in becoming the new stewards for Hawks. He will be following the approval process of NBA. This is why he did not wish to disclose anything further. But he did say that he was incredibly excited with the success of the Hawks and wished them luck for the playoffs.

This sale price for the team is going to have a major impact on the market. It reflects how strong the NBA product is right now. It will also depict how the market is going to become in the near future. There will be a number of other factors that will be playing a role here. This would include various national as well as local media deals. Next is the trend of increasing the valuations of NBA teams. Hence this sales price for the team is going to reflect the true picture of the market. https://www.nsf.gov/staff/staff_bio.jsp?lan=blevenso

Keeping Drugs Out of Jail with the Help Securus Technologies

Perhaps the biggest problem we officers face in jail each day is the inmates being able to get their hands on drugs. When the inmates are under the influence, not only do the behave irrationally, they can put us officers at risk. One inmate that may be able to be controlled by two officers may now need a half-dozen or more. This is a very dangerous situation and possess a risk to officers and inmates alike.

 

My job as an officer of the jail is monitoring the drug traffic, and it can be brought into the jail a number of ways. Although a corrupt officer could be on the take, it was not the case in our jail. My first course of action is to monitor the visitors to the jails. Many of the visitors will put their own life at risk to be able to help the inmates to get their hands on drugs. Although I have been able to find decent amounts through inspections at the jail entrance, it was a fraction of the amount circulating in the jail.

 

Next, I monitor the inmate phone system and listen carefully for information on how the drugs are being brought into our facility. Even though I have a decent success rate, it was not until we update our system and Securus Technologies trained us on the new system, did we see our biggest success to date. I was learning the LBS software and discovered that I could easily spot instances where an inmate was talking to a family member about getting heroin into the jail.

 

With the help of this new technology, I can now spot tell-tale signs when drugs are coming in, and it has dropped our success rate of nabbing huge drug deliveries to over 75% this month alone.

Benefits of a Partnership between the Government and Private Firms on the Country’s Basic Sanitation Services

Just recently, the government announced its intentions to make concessions by partnering with the National Bank for Economic and Social Development. During an interview, the president of Trata Brasil, Edison Carlos explained a few things about the initiative while expressing his confidence that the services offered will go through major transformations with respect to management, structure-wise, and in the resource areas – as reported by Felipe Montoro Jens, an infrastructure project specialist.

According to Edison on executives.findthecompany.com, 90 percent of Brazil’s basic sanitation services are performed by public power. While noting that the state organization serves approximately 70 percent of the users, Edison argued that the presence of private project does not justify public exclusion because the two types of management can complement each other. He also added that the government organization has extensive experience that can be leveraged through its partnership with the private firms.

Felipe Montoro Jens mentioned water wastage as one of the major things affecting the flow of financial resources. While responding to this, Edison explained on odebrecht.com that private enterprise possesses more resources than state organizations, and the more reasons it is a crucial ally in the war against water wastage. Edison also cited advancement of technology as yet another strategy that can help to prevent wastage of water especially if more investments are made in the sewage networks.

While commenting about the equality of private and public organizations with respect to their ability to offer adequate services at http://www.bloomberg.com/research/stocks/private/person.asp?personId=113457657&privcapId=45984138&previousCapId=45984138&previousTitle=Energipar%20Capta%C3%A7%C3%A3o%20S.A., Edison said that the efficiency of a company is not measured by its administration – but rather by its ability to meet the needs of the users, and manage costs effectively.

My Month Using WEN By Chaz

As a beauty blogger image is everything, I would not be able to give tips or accurately review products if I show up everywhere I go with a style that screams hot mess, some pull it off though not me. So when my hair started to turn into a frizz ball and mornings became less of a pleasant experience and more of a battle against the frizz, I knew I had to do something quick. Let me preface this by saying my hair was not always this way, before I left behind the beautiful sunny beaches of Hawaii, my hair felt almost as soft as the falling waterfalls that dotted my backyard. But after a move to a new place and an introduction to low humidity, the hair I was once proud to show off had become permanently frizzy and banished to whatever beanie or hat I could find.

That was until I tried WEN by Chaz, the cleaning conditioner made by celebrity stylist Chaz Dean. I was more than happy to jump on the opportunity to try a product that was designed, used, and vouched for by celebrities so I decided I had nothing to lose but time so I gave it a try.

The first week was a learning experience making the switch to only using a conditioner instead of my regular shampoo but after I got used to my new routine it was simple. Surprisingly enough after one week, I started to notice a change in my hair, no more battles with an untameable beasts in the morning and finally a softness returned.

It wasn’t until the second week though was I completely sold on the organic and naturally sourced cleansing conditioner. That’s when the compliments started pouring in.

After one month, I love my bottle of WEN by Chaz and don’t see myself ever going back.

Dick DeVos Has An Estimated $139 Million In His Non-Political Gifts

Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy have really put in a lot of work in not only business, but philanthropy and public service and have been one of Michigan’s most well-known education reform activists. The DeVos’s have also given their money to local hospitals, museums, libraries, universities, churches and other special non-profit venues. They’ve never felt it necessary to disclose how much they’ve given over the years, but in light of Betsy DeVos’s nomination to Secretary of Education they finally decided to make the amount known, an estimated $139 million in lifetime giving. That amount is largely exclusive of political campaigns they’ve contributed to over the years.

 

Dick DeVos is the Chairman of The Windquest Group, a company he and Betsy started back in 1989. This company specializes in investments in alternative energy, locally-owned retail shops, clean water bottling and even recently the acquisition of Coppercraft Distillery in Holland, MI. Prior to founding The Windquest Group, Dick worked at his family company, Amway Corporation. This company was co-founded by his father, Richard DeVos Sr. who is also the current owner of the NBA’s Orlando Magic. Dick worked at Amway for over 20 years starting off as a department manager, then later moving up to vice president in 1984 and eventually CEO in 1993. Dick stepped down from Amway and turned the company over to his brother Douglas in 2002.

 

Dick and Betsy started the Dick & Betsy DeVos Foundation in 1992 through which most of their giving has been channeled. Their giving has primarily been for scholarship programs to help underprivileged families afford private schools, but they’ve also helped fund charter school aid as well. They have even established a charter school that’s open to the public called the West Michigan Aviation Academy. This school is hosted at the Gerald R. Ford Airport and has a specialized curriculum in aviation and aircraft mechanics.

 

Dick was a leader of Grand Action Committee, a board of business and civic leaders that led a commercial and entertainment venue building project for downtown Grand Rapids. Dick and Betsy also helped the Kennedy Center complete its Art Institute building project with a donation over $20 million, and the institute was promptly renamed in their honor. Dick and Betsy are staunch Republican Party supporters with Betsy having served as the Michigan Republican Party chairperson, and Dick ran for governor in 2006 though he came up short. They also led the effort that saw right-to-work legislation get passed in 2012. Dick has given to conservative think tanks and institutions such as Heritage Foundation, the Constitutional Foundation, Hudson Institute and Action Institute. He’s also the author of a 1998 New York Times bestseller on constitutional ideology titled Rediscovering American Values.

 

The Lung Institute Is On The Forefront Of Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy is quickly becoming the go-to treatment for a variety of serious lung diseases.  For patients with these serious lung issues, stem cell therapy can save lives and help to give them back their lives. Stem cell therapy is a relatively new treatment process that is saving lives all over the world.

The process of stem cell therapy, see lunginstitute.com, involves the use of the patient’s own blood. Once the blood has been drawn it is then separated and the stem cells are collected. Stem cells can also be collected from the bone marrow of the patient. The stem cells are then injected back into the body. Stem cells naturally collect in the lungs when introduced back into the body. Once in the lungs, the stem cells help to begin the healing process as well as cutting down on inflammation in the lungs.

They have knowledgeable doctors and staff that have made effective treatment of lung diseases their primary focus. They walk the patient through every step of the process and ensure that every measure has been taken to ensure a safe and effective treatment for the patient. Most people respond to stem cell therapy with excellent results. Stem cell therapy is saving lives and The Lung Institute is on the forefront of this incredible treatment process.
