Bruce Levenson Led Atlanta Hawks LLC Sues NHIC

The New Hampshire Insurance Company has been sued by the Atlanta Hawks Baseball and Entertainment LLC for contract breach. They have sued them based on the bad insurance faith and breach of contract on the 13th of September at the Superior Court of Fulton County. The $18 million, six-year contract which started in 2012 came to an end on the 22nd of June, 2015 when the owners Hawk and Ferry reached an undisclosed buyout agreement. The Ressler-led group bought the franchise, which was approved after two days. The amount claimed was, however, confidential, according to court documents. The AHBE’s claim could be played based on the confidential limits of liability of the policy based on the lawsuits.


An additional 50% penalty is also being sought after by the lawsuit for the outstanding attorney’s fees, the loss incurred and the cost. However, AIF claims that despite the fact that Mr.Ferry triggered the AIF Policy, the claim falls within the coverage of the policy. Bruce Levenson is the former Hawks ownership group, and he is also a part of the team leading the lawsuit. He has served on the Board of Governors as the Governor of Hawks from 2004.

Martin Lustgarten – How Investment Banks Promote Growth of the Economy

Investment banks perform two recognized functions: trading and capital market intermediation. These functions are different and unique from those commonly carried out by commercial banks that accept deposits and provide loans. Investment banks are essential agents of capital generation and price setting. They are instrumental in coordinating the consumption of present and the future. The role of investment and commercial banks is well defined in the U.S. than other nations around the word.

The independent investment-banking sector in the United States

Glass-Steagall Act enforced by the U.S. Congress back in 1933, created a distinct legal line of operation between commercial banks and investment banks. This act restricted investment banks against accepting deposits or making loans. On the hand, commercial banks could not engage in the underwriting of securities. Fortunately, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 eased these barriers.

Capital formation

In the modern mixed economies, government institutions, large corporations, and individual investors depend on investment banks to develop capital. They match individual or firms selling securities with those willing to buy. These banks earn their revenues by linking producer to savers and facilitating financial development.

Controlling interest rates

Investment banks work in close cooperation with commercial banks to assist in determining predominant market interest rates. While the rates for investment and commercial products are different, all interest rate affect each other. For instance, interest rate determines the amount of interest a saving will generate and the cost of borrowing.

Indigenous People Making Their Way to Wikipedia

Have you ever heard of Esther Belin? What about the history and talent of other Indigenous people? Unfortunately, there tends to be a lack of Indigenous people listed on Wikipedia, which is one of the top resources when researching on the internet. The staff of the Indian Country Today media network claims that there is so few information regarding Indigenous people, that the foundation of Wikipedia is beginning to work with them to increase the information relating to their people and history.

Wikipedia is known by any person who has ever done research online, it is a staple for researching because it is believed you can find whatever subject you’re searching for. It also allows people to edit a Wikipedia page and add information or articles that they have information about as long as they meet the guidelines of submission. It allows people to get their businesses branded in a positive light, as well providing information about different ethnicities and cultures. For some reason, though, information and history related to the Indigenous people is lacking on the Wikipedia site, and Wikipedia and the people want to change that.

This past October Wikipedia held an event, Wikiconference North America that helps founders and researchers to brainstorm as to what should be included on their website. This past event, Indigenous people attended in hopes to weed out important articles about their history to put onto Wikipedia.

Why was this even an issue to begin with? It seems, that post people who spend time editing on Wikipedia, edit topics related to themselves and their culture, maybe because that is what they know most about. However, it was found that 63% of Indonesian land residents don’t have access to 25 Mbps/3 Mbps broadband. Meaning, they can not go online and edit or add their own information related to their history. And others may not know as much about their culture and not feel comfortable adding information about them.

Wikipedia is encouraging those who do have internet access and those who want to see ever part of history on Wikipedia help by going to the list of missing articles on indigenous peoples and begin doing research and adding important events and people related to the Indigenous people on Wikipedia. Remember, Wikipedia is an outlet for those who are curious about the world, whether it be for a paper, or just personal research so it is important that it has as much accurate information as possible.

Dr. Walden Came Home to Where the Heart Is

In 2011, after almost a decade in Manhattan, New York establishing a very successful practice as a plastic surgeon, Dr. Jennifer L. Walden decided she must move back home to Austin, Texas. In November 2010, Dr. Walden had just become a single mother of twin boys and thought them being around her large extended family in Austin was more important than her New York practice. In 2011, she closed her office and established her new office in Austin.


It has paid off. Her boys, Rex and Houston, along with her cosmetic surgery practice are thriving in Austin. In April 2014, Dr. Walden was named one of the top 24 best beauty plastic surgeons in the United States by Harper’s Barzaar magazine. She is currently serving on the on the board of the directors of the American Society for Aesthetic Surgery. She is the second woman ever to serve on it.


Dr Walden is highly regarded in her field. She is an accomplished author being published numerous times over the last ten years in the area of plastic and reconstructive surgery to include textbooks for future surgeons. Because of her expertise, she can be seen as an expert commentator on television giving advice on ABC News, Fox News, Dr 90210 etc.


With all this on her plate, to include a long waiting list of patients wanting to see her, she always seems relaxed and calm. No one ever complains about being rushed when visiting her office. She is still that hometown girl from Austin, giving all to her patients.


Why Do Shoes And Lip Balm Go Together At EOS?

Shoes and lip balm might not seem like a natural pairing because they cover the head and the toe respectively. However, they are a very good combination with EOS lip balm. The lip balm company wanted to make sure people knew that it was different. The best way to do that was to show everyone how different it was. They started out with a lip balm that came in good packaging, and they noticed that they had a very large youth following. The next thing they did was partner with Keds to create shoes that would match their lip balms.

EOS lip balms are made with specific coloring that everyone will enjoy. The user gets the same kind of lip care in each package, but they get a color that excites them. The kids who started using EOS lip balm made it into more than just a fad, and they were just the kind of people who would enjoy wearing shoes that came in the same vibrant colors that their lip balm came in. It is not the most standard combination, but it looks really good when a group kids pull out their lip balm to show their tube matches their shoes.

EOS knows how to reach kids, and that is why they are now catching up to the old guard in the lip balm industry that has been there for a long time. They want to be sure that they could do something that would put them outside the traditional mold of a cosmetics company. This move to be in the fashion world has changed the lives of kids who would have never used lip balm, and it will be just as much fun for adults who know they want to be a little bit different. EOS lip balms are available on local Walmart supermarkets and can also be purchased online thru

Wengie’s YouTube Smoky Bold Eye Makeup Tutorial

Asian beauty and YouTube viral personality Wengie gives us an in-depth tutorial on how to create a smoky, sexy look for the eyes. Wengie is the digital ambassador for the New Shu Uemura in collaboration with KYE cosmetics collection. Mainly, this tutorial appeals to those with Hooded eyelids.

Many well-known celebrities with Hooded eyelids include Jennifer Lawrence, Taylor Swift, Paris Hilton, Blake Lively, and Renee Zellweger just to name a few.


Wengie walks you step by step showing you to create the perfect face. But today we are focusing on Wengie demonstrating her smouldering, smoky eye look for us. On the eyebrows, Wengie uses the Hard Formula Brow Pencil in order to finely shape and clean the arch of the brow. Wengie goes on to transform and darken the eyebrows by adding a punch of burgundy pearl color by using Limited Edition Rose & Cappuccino Brow Pallette and Limited Edition Rose Brow Manicure Mascara. Wengie suggests nothing but a matte application featuring the Shu Eyeshadow Pallette to enhance the crease of the eyelids and contour the nose bridge. Applying beautiful earth tones such as medium brown and dark matte colors bring out more of the burgundy tones in the eyebrows. Making sure you are blending in the colors is imperative.


Wengie applies The Black Calligraph Ink Eyeliner in a bold thick manner of a wing shape which creates an almost nostalgic look. She then layers with Limited Edition KYE Black Drawing Pencil along her lower lash line for a thicker look that will not smudge. Lastly, to further bring out her eyes, Wengie enhances her smoky look with a Limited Edition KYE Navy Drawing Pencil by tracing on top of the thick black wing shape making it much darker.
