Former Hawks group sues an insurance company

Sept 2016 the Atlanta journal constitution.

The former ownership group of NBA Franchise, the Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC (AHBE) filed a dispute against New Hampshire Insurance Company. The AHBE sued the company for breach of contract which involved the settlement of claims indicated by Danny Ferry, the former general manager.

The AHBE included Bruce Levenson who is the controlling partner. Nonetheless, the lawsuit does not involve the current leadership of Hawks which is led by Tony Ressler who is the principle owner.

On 13 Sept, the suit was presented to the superior court of Fulton County against the insurance company also referred to AIG. The AHBE claims insurance bad faith and breach of contract. The AHBE appeals that it was insured under a policy that covered particular losses related to employment practices, including, but not limited to various acts of “wrongful termination” and also “workplace torts.” The court documents indicated that the group notified AIG on 2nd April 2015 about the claims asserted by Danny who was believed to be covered under the policy.

The presented lawsuit shows that the confidential liability of the policy is satisfactory to play AHBEs allegations. The documents show that AIG refused to approve that the claims were made and declined to acknowledge that the policy was triggered. The lawsuit, therefore, claims a breach of contract and failure to pay particular covered losses under the policy.

Bruce Levenson is an American entrepreneur, Forbes billionaire and a philanthropist. Levenson has established various companies including NBA and Atlanta Hawks LLC which was formerly known as Atlanta Spirt LLC. He also co-founded United Communication Group. He graduated from law school at American University. Levenson is an active participant in different philanthropist organizations including Foundation of Washington and Hoop Dreams Foundations.

Inside Brian Bonar’s restaurant that is fit for a queen

Scottish entrepreneur Brian Bonar decided to build a restaurant in the small empire of North County. For a start, he began small with the bistro, which is Bellamy’s current home. It has been a while and there a lot of progressive work to say about this bistro. At Bellamy, you are not welcomed by mermaid-hostess on the streets asking you for dinner.

Bartenders here sport moustaches and suspenders; it is only because they have done this for decades. For this place, it is the classic cars that bring people together.

Bored teenagers flock the mall food courts with a cranky look and tons of jewelry with them, it seems like every part of the city till you meet the small difference. There is a grandfatherly police at the view of such suspicion. Well, leave the noisy teenagers, her Majesty the Queen recently made a grand entrance to this restaurant too.

At one Tuesday evening, within the company of Princess Royal, she made an entry to the executive eatery. She would tell you that many factors make the choice of a place for a dinner; venue, the ambience, the food, the wine list and perhaps the décor and lighting.

For people that want to see and be seen, then charm your way into Brian Bonar restaurant. You will get past the doorman and find yourself in Berkeley’s ladies, be sure to drive into shoals of them. This was the restaurant too where the queen was headed to celebrate the 90th birthday with one of her oldest friends. The former lady-in-waiting Lady Penn celebrated her birthdays here. The distinction with this restaurant is in its high society and aristocracy that brings the highest form of difference.

Social Media For Online Reputation Management

Perhaps the easiest way to manage online reputation is to use social media. Social media is where the business owner and other types of people interact with society. When one uses social media, he will present more of himself to the audience. Social media is how people learn more about any given person. This is also how they interact with the user. The important thing is to exercise wisdom in using any platform. Of course, sometimes people will say unkind things about your company or brand and in this case you will have to exercise crisis communication tactics. Among the things that one should do is keep the content that he is presenting mostly positive. He must also avoid any long drawn out arguments. Even discussions can get a little messy on one side or the other.

While it is a little easier to manage social media accounts, it is still a good idea to hire the help of professional online reputation management companies such as Reputation Management Fixers. They are good about handling the many different aspects of online reputation management. For one thing, they have a lot of time to manage reputation since that is their job. Business owners as well as other types of clients tend to not have that much time for online reputation management. This is why they are better off handing the job to others like Reputation Management Fixers.

Social media is also good for bringing a website to the front page of search results. If the user learns about all of the different features of the social media platform he is using, then he could effectively bring a lot of attention to his company. He could also present a positive image of himself and his company. This would also help bury negative search results so that this is not the first thing potential customers see. When one takes the time to build a strong reputation and a loyal circle, then he will be better able to avoid any pitfalls that come with online reputation crises.

The Dangers of Petroleum Based Lip Balms

Petroleum is one chemical that you will want to avoid when purchasing your next skin care or lip balm product. This substance appears to be extra moisturizing and skin nourishing, but it is actually a byproduct of refined oil. Not to mention that it is not eco-friendly nor biodegradable.

Lip balms that contain this crude oil will clog the skin and lock in dirt. It will also be easier to swallow since it is close to the mouth. If the manufacturer does not use extra pure and refined petroleum, there is a chance that it may become carcinogenic.

The Evolution of Smooth lip products are 100% petroleum-free. Their products provide skin repairing properties such as vitamins, such as A,C and E. The moisturizing comes from an array of all natural oils such as olive, coconut and jojoba. These oils are completely natural and are excellent for the skin.

Olive oil is one of the main ingredients in EOS formulations and for a good reason. It is one of the most concentrated, all natural forms of vitamin E. Vitamin E acts as a potent antioxidant and helps the skin to retain natural moisture. Frequently providing the skin with topical vitamin E can encourage cell turnover and healthier lips.

Beeswax is another prominent moisturizer in EOS balms. This substance, like petroleum, has a thick consistency and a high-water resistance. However, beeswax is all natural and nourishing for the skin. Being a source of vitamin A, it can assist with collagen production in skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and can speed up wound healing. Check out for the list of EOS balms.

It is always best to check the ingredient list on your favorite lip care products. Opting for lip balms with all natural ingredients will be better for your health, body and the environment. Always remember to avoid products containing petroleum if possible. For more info, visit the company’s Linked In page.
