The Beauty of Lake Tahoe Skiing and Excellent Resort Options

  • Posted on August 31, 2016 at 7:00 am

Skiing is a favorite winter hobby, and Lake Tahoe is one of the most attractive destinations with the Sierra Mountains providing the perfect background. Lake Tahoe ski resorts are some of the best in the world, and they offer a wide range of vacation options whether traveling alone or as a group. Whether you are looking for something simple or intend to splurge on a world-class accommodation, it is all available.

Something for Everyone

Lake Tahoe offers an abundance of events for snowboarders and skiers that will keep you occupied for a very long time with something different to try out each day. If you are a first-time skier, then there are forgiving slopes that will make the experience one to remember. Any snowboarder or skier will tell you that Lake Tahoe is one destination to try out when planning a ski trip. The mountains and the blue alpine lake give scenery that is worth any spend. With this environment, you get resorts that are fun all year round; whether it’s the snow or the beach.

The Squaw/Alpine Adventure

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are two resort options that you can pick from when skiing in Lake Tahoe on squawalpine.com. These are some of the most iconic resorts in the region and for a good reason. Squaw Valley became famous for hosting the 1990 winter Olympics and has been catering to different ski vacation needs. The area provides a few thousand acres that are covered by 270 trails and 42 lifts for skiers. The Squaw Valley village offers a European-inspired style with art galleries, restaurants, and boutiques lining the gorgeous alpine scenery. The terrain offers a little bit of everything for beginners, veterans, or intermediate skiers and snowboarders. Squaw Valley also prides itself on having the longest snowboarding and ski season with its average of 450 inches of snowfall.

Then just across it, there is Alpine Meadows perfect for family vacations. The resort that lies on 2400 acres of skiable terrain that offers wild adventures. It is the epitome of hospitality with lodges designed as chalets and beautiful playgrounds where children can spend time. You will find the resort village between Tahoe City and Truckee.

The two resorts have always been connected with two ski passes separating the two mountains. Even though the two became one resort after the purchase of Alpine Meadows by Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, skiers still have to drive from one to the other. Skiers get to experience a unique feel from each resort and enjoy different ski cultures that characterize any good ski trip.

Adam Goldenberg Building Great Reputation In LA

  • Posted on August 13, 2016 at 12:13 pm

When you list the top young CEOs in Los Angeles Adam Goldenberg is sure to come up. The CEO has seen a lot of success in his years in LA since his original business, Gamer’s Alliance. Goldenberg saw a market that was being ignored in gaming and created that gaming network to fill voids in the market. He grew the company until he sold it in 1999 to Intermix media for an undisclosed amount of money.

His next success came in 2006. This was when he added to his legacy as a great business leader with the company Intelligent Design. Intelligent Design was one of the top internet brand incubators in the country in the mid-2000s. He ran that business until Goldenberg founded his latest success story, JustFab.

JustFab may be his biggest success story yet. This business has a more direct goal compared to some of his previous companies. JustFab is a VIP membership-based company that is dedicated to clothing and fashion. People can join the membership service to gain access to fashion trends and get them at a lower price. The company received over $50 million in funding in the year 2010 alone. Adam Goldenberg says that there are two keys to his success as a leader in business; paying attention to metrics and great hiring practices.

Metrics

Adam Goldenberg is well-known amongst his staff to pay close attention to the numbers and facts that he is given about any aspect of his company. This could be information regarding how well a certain product is selling. It could also be information about effective a certain marketing platform is. Either way, Goldenberg will heed this information and react to it as quickly as possible. This is a great reflection of the lack of ego that Goldenberg has as a leader at http://www.builtinla.com/2014/01/18/3-la-ceos-you-need-know-now-adam-goldenberg-justfab.

Employees

The hot shot CEO also understands that great employees are the cornerstone of any great business on en.wikipedia.org. He is less apt to hire someone based on their educational resume or their work experience and is more likely to look at them as people and just their work ethic and energy about the company that they are working for when looking into hiring someone. He believes that these are the things that cannot be taught when it comes to employees. Everybody starts out with no experience at some point. You can’t teach someone to work hard or be excited about working on a certain project.

Securus: The Time is Now to Stop GTL

  • Posted on August 9, 2016 at 3:25 pm

In life, time is of the essence. You can’t wait around to do something. You have to do something sooner rather than later and the reason for that is that the longer something goes on, the longer it will continue to go on. When it comes to someone doing the wrong thing or behaving in a shady fashion, it can’t go for a second or a minute longer. The time is now to put a stop to them and not allow them to get away with it. The time is now to speak up, stand up, and do something about it. If it goes on for a single day longer, that is one too many days. That is why Securus is taking this so seriously when it comes to GTL, Global Tel-Link, an inmate communications provider.

They have seen the damage they have done to other people and they have seen all of their wrongdoings. Because of this, they are not just going to sit by and do nothing. They are releasing a series of press releases that will highlight a lot of very interesting information that I’m sure GTL wishes people didn’t know about, as they are ripping off customers left and right with no regard for the damage they have caused.

Once these are released, people will read them and the right course of action will be taken. There will be no more hiding and there will be no more shying away from this. They will have to answer for themselves and they will have to do something about it. I’m hoping this is the end of GTL and they pay for their actions. They knew what they were doing and they did it anyways, which makes it all the more disgusting and the all the more revolting in my eyes.

George Soros Revamps His Market Strategy

  • Posted on July 20, 2016 at 2:44 am

The world can be a highly volatile place. This has been particularly true in recent years as many changes have been noted across the world. Governments have fallen in places such as the United Kingdom and Germany. Those leading China seem to be unsure what should be the best way to help their people find peace and prosperity today. This has helped lead to potential instability in the financial market. One person who has been relied on for leadership in making sense of the markets is investor George Soros. Soros is one of the world’s richest men. He has a vast fortune that he has been able to amass as a result of being able to read the markets of the world quite accurately. Those who follow the markets know that they can rely on his judgement and his reading of the way the world’s markets interact with each other.

His Latest Move

As revealed in the Wall Street Journal, Soros has decided to return to the world of market trading. His efforts in recent years have been largely directed towards the promotion of causes that he cares about such as the presidential campaign of Ms. Clinton. It has been noted by market observers that he has chosen to stay out the market in the last few years. This is why many close watchers were startled to see that Soros has made the decision to back to the world of trading. Many people were even more startled to note that George Soros has chosen bearish investments based on his clear expectation that the markets may suffer some reverses. His investments have largely been of a conservative nature. His investments have been in commodities such as gold. Gold is one of the most common places for bearish investors to move to when they are concerned about falling markets. Such investments are often perceived as safe havens that help investors avoid losses.

One Of The World’s Most Respected Investors

A native of Hungary, Soros is noted for his vast understanding of markets around the world. He currently divides his time between many places including the United States and Europe. As a result of his work in this field, he has enjoyed tremendous success and a great deal of respect from those who know that investing can be tricky and confusing. His best known success came from a series of educated guesses about the path of the Pound, the currency used in the United Kingdom. He is currently clearly concerned about the recent decision in Great Britain to leave the European Union and go forward as a potentially isolated place. This may be influencing his decision to invest in gold and gold mining stocks.

Madison Street Capital’s Co-Founder Anthony Marsala Receives Another Industry Award

  • Posted on July 11, 2016 at 3:46 pm

Chicago-based Madison Street Capital is known for putting merger and acquisitions together. Madison Street Capital was co-founded by Charles Botchway and Anthony Marsala. Those two seasoned financial experts saw a need for a company that could put small and medium size companies together and produce a profitable offspring. Marsala as well as Botchway have been honored for their work in the financial industry. But the latest honor goes to Tony Marsala.Tony was recently honored by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts. Tony was given the 40 Under Forty Recognition Award for 2015.

Marsala was one of the recipients because he made great strides in categories like business valuations, litigation consulting, financial forensics and expert witness testimony. If those categories sound like legal descriptions they are, according to the Executive Staff of the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts. The Executive Staff takes their nomination process seriously, and so does the financial industry. According to the NACVA judges they were overwhelmed with the results that Marsala produced in 2015

Receiving the 40 Under Forty Award is not taken lightly by the nominees. The nominees are a select group of outstanding performers from different industries. The National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts and the Consultants’ Training Institute are rooted in superior quality, excellence, and the pioneering spirit of visionary leaders like Tony Marsala. The 40 Under Forty Recognition Award gives recipients a voice and more opportunity in their perspective industries. Brien K. Jones, the Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President for NACVA and the CTI, said the nominees are the best of the best, and they are experts in their industries.

But the Madison Street Capital team knew that Marsala was an expert long before he started receiving awards for his performance in the accounting and financial industry. Marsala is responsible for putting mergers together in all parts of the world. There is a lot of talk about the government putting more restrictions on mergers and acquisitions, but that hasn’t stopped Marsala from putting medium size companies together in a room and working out the details of a merger or an acquisition that could change their future. https://network.axial.net/a/company/madison-street-capital/

Marsala appreciated the recognition by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts. Tony also said that 2016 is shaping up as another excellent year for Madison Street Capital’s M&A division. Even though there is a recession in Europe, Asia, and South America and the economy in the United States is slowing down, the merger and acquisition business is better than ever. Marsala said companies in Europe want to merge with companies in the United States because of the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.

Sugar The Shih Tzu Is A Very Happy Dog Thanks To Beneful

  • Posted on June 18, 2016 at 12:49 am

I have a Shih Tzu named Sugar. As many people know Shih Tzu’s are a very spunky, gentle, playful, and alert dog breed. Shih Tzu’s are also one of the smaller dog breeds out there. Sugar is, in fact, a spunky, gentle, playful, alert, and small dog just like other Shih Tzu’s out there. Sugar was not named Sugar because of the color of her fur but instead named Sugar because she is tiny like a grain of sugar is. Sugar was definitely the runt of her litter which means she was the smallest one out of all the puppy’s. We choose Sugar because the fact that she was smaller than the rest of her litter made her unique. Sugar eats Beneful dog food by Purinastore on a daily basis to keep her spunky, playful, and alert. I buy Sugar 3 different types of Beneful dog food and one type of dog treat that Beneful makes. The 3 different types of Beneful dog food that I give Sugar are Beneful incredibites dry dog food in the beef flavor, Beneful chopped blends wet dog food in the turkey flavor, and Beneful incredibites wet dog food in the salmon flavor. Beneful incredibites comes in both dry and wet dog food and the reason I give Sugar both types is because she likes the salmon flavor and it is currently only offered in a wet dog food [https://www.beneful.com/products/wet-dog-food/] version. Beneful incredibites extremely easy for Sugar to chew because they are bite size pieces of dog food made for little dogs instead of big pieces of dog food. Beneful chopped blends in the turkey flavor has not only turkey in it but also has brown rice, sweet potatoes, and spinach in it which makes it like a Thanksgiving feast all in one container for Sugar. Sugar especially likes the Beneful chopped blends in the turkey flavor dog food because she loves sweet potatoes. The one kind of dog treat that I buy for Sugar is the Beneful dental ridges in the mini size because they help to not only keep her teeth clean but also make her breath smell better and she has stinky breath when I don’t give them to her. Beneful is available online, visit their Amazon page.

Supporting Ukraine is EU’s Greatest Hope, Soros Insists

  • Posted on June 8, 2016 at 2:21 pm

As the British referendum to withdraw from membership in the European Union looms ever closer, concern over the fundamental health of the EU is increasing. Europe faces a number of crises. The Greek debt problem promises no quick solution; the euro appears more fragile and embattled than ever; the crisis across the eurozone posed by asylum seekers from the Near East both destabilizes and chips away at EU member-states’ confidence in their leaders. And as confidence wanes, demands for change become more radical.

One voice offering EU leaders rational and constructive advice is that of George Soros, financier, chairman of Soros Fund Management, and head of the Open Society Foundation. In a recent article for the New York Review of Books, Soros identified the current situation in the Ukraine as deserving the highest priority for the European Union. Europe must support the Ukraine by continuing sanctions against Russia and by providing increased financial support. If the problems posed by the Ukraine are correctly dealt with, Soros insists, the EU stands to gain a valuable bulwark against Russian military and economic aggression as well as a renewal of its own morale. If ignored or mishandled, however, the Ukrainian situation threatens to strengthen Vladimir Putin’s stand and to further destabilize the EU.

Soros has posited the existence of a “new” and an “old” Ukraine. The latter was controlled by moneyed oligarchs who put self-enrichment before the welfare of the state; the old Ukraine was led by former president Viktor Yanukovych and his party, driven from power during the Maidan revolution in February, 2014. The “new” Ukraine is determined to carry out reform and to right the wrongs of its political past. It is strong, vibrant, and willing to sacrifice its own current interests for a better tomorrow. If the EU can bolster the new Ukraine, not only with sanctions against Russia but with direct financial assistance, it promises to become a valuable and capable ally. But if the new Ukraine is allowed to stagnate and lose heart, it will take at least a generation to rebuild the spirit of reform that it currently demonstrates.

A New Policy to Rescue Ukraine

Sustaining Ukraine’s Breakthrough

The European Union, Soros insists, has been treating the new Ukraine like Greece when it comes to being willing to invest in the country’s future. Many EU member countries strongly oppose further financial bail-outs for Greece. But to treat the new Ukraine like Greece and to hesitate to invest in its financial security and growth would, George Soros Ukraine maintains, be very wrong-headed. The Ukraine needs a lot of cash to stabilize its economy and to help it build upon its strengths. Irrespective of how the EU should deal with Greece, one of its own members, it certainly should be willing to bolster the Ukraine with financial assistance at this crucial moment. To do so would not only gain Europe a valuable ally; the Ukraine’s successful recovery from recent trials would serve to discredit Vladimir Putin’s policies, causing further financial stress in Russia and weakening Putin’s popularity among Russian voters.

Getting Your Obese Dog Down To Size

  • Posted on June 7, 2016 at 4:23 am

You’ve probably heard doctors and other health professionals talk about obesity in humans on TV, but did you know that obesity can be a big problem for pets too?

 

While a roly-poly pug or a saggy, baggy shih tzu may seem cute and cuddly, overweight dogs could easily become very ill or even die because of the extra fat they are carrying. Dogs who are overweight or obese can develop severe health conditions, such as heart disease and high cholesterol, just as easily as humans can.

 

If you are concerned about your dog’s weight, first you should take him to the veterinarian to determine if your dog is overweight or obese. If he is, one of the best ways to help your dog lose weight is to feed him a healthy diet that is designed for weight loss or maintenance.

 

Beneful.com offers a great dog food variety called Healthy Weight that is specifically designed for dogs who need to lose weight. This dog food is made from real chicken, vegetables and whole grains and offers a flavorful, filling food for your dog with 10% fewer calories than normal dog food varieties. It’s designed to fill your dog up and give him energy while also helping him get down to size.

 

Of course, another way to help your dog lose weight is to ensure that he gets plenty of exercise. If you can, walk your dog regularly or play Frisbee or catch with him in the yard. If you are keeping your dog active for weight loss and good health, you may want to feed him Beneful‘s Playful Life dry dog food. This blend is designed with extra protein from real beef and eggs.

 

Once your dog has reached a healthy weight, you can switch him to any number of other dog foods. Beneful provides many choices in both wet and dry foods for puppies and adult dogs. Their popular Originals dry food line on Amazon comes in beef, chicken and salmon varieties. You can even mix these dog foods with the Healthy Weight food if you want to slowly transition your dog to the weight loss diet.
