Former Atlanta Hawks Management Sues AIG and Its Partner For Breach Of Contract

The former Atlanta Hawks ownership group, the Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment Group LLC, has filed a lawsuit against the New Hampshire Insurance Company for a breach of contract. According to the official reports, the former ownership group of the NBA franchise claims that the insurance company has not responded to insurance requests made by the former General Manager of AHBE, Danny Ferry.

The former management of ABHE insist that New Hampshire Insurance Company and its partner AIG are responsible for the payment of coverage of certain losses related to the employment practices. As such, the claim suggests that the former management of Atlanta Hawks was covered by its insurance company regarding clauses related to “Wrongful Termination” and “Workplace Torts”.

Actually, the former general manager of ABHE, Danny Ferry, ended the relationship with ABHE in June 2015 that had started with an $18 million contract for six years. However according to ESPN report, the resale of Franchise to a Resller-led group led to a loss for AHBE regarding Ferry’s terms of employment. To recoup the loss, ABHE filed a claim with AIG stating that the loss was covered under the agreement of insurance. According to the former management of ABHE, AIG has not only refused to accept that a policy claim has triggered, but it has refused to accept that a claim was made by ABHE.

Interestingly, the court document also state that AHBE gave notice to AIG on April 2, 2015 to settle such claims. It is also notable that Bruce Levenson (see, brucelevenson.com), the former owner of Atlanta Hawks is among the claimants. Just before the notice to AIG in April, Bloomberg broke the news that Levenson has finalized a deal to sell the franchise to Resller for $730 million. At the time, analyst claimed that the winning bid was significantly less than what brokers for Atlanta Hawks had told Levenson. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/undergrads-and-graduate-students-mastering-philanthropy-300038081.html

Bernardo Chua Puts a Unique Spin on Coffee

The OrganoGold brand of coffee, tea and healthcare products have become quite intriguing to the mainstream. There are a lot of people that love this brand, and Bernardo Chua is the reason for this. It has become one of the most profitable direct-selling brands around, and much of this has to do with the way that this brand has evolved.

When Bernardo started working on this brand it was obvious that he would come to the market with something that was completely different. He pushed his way into the stream of beverage consumers with a product that contained the Ganoderma mushroom.

This is something that has been deemed a healing mushroom. It makes the OrganoGold product that Bernardo Chua is promoting much different than anything else that is out there. This product would become the cornerstone of the brand that would eventually evolve into coffee, tea and healthcare products.

Bernardo Chua has managed to take things to another level and give customers access to a line of products that are unlike anything else that is on the market. The majority of people that are coffee drinkers are actually trying to limit the amount of coffee that they have.

They have become worried about their health, but this OrganoGold product is much different. This is the type of product that has made it possible for more people to actually maintain their health. The healing agent that is here in this coffee is a real game changer.

A good number of people will agree that OrganoGold is one of the more popular brands for people that are looking for a unique blend of coffee. There are millions of people that are fine with the basic brands of coffee that are on the market. This is not the crowd that OrganoGold is trying to target.

George Soros and the Black Lives Matter Rumors

In the past year the Black Lives Matter movement has been in the news constantly at http://foreignpolicy.com/author/george-soros/, as several police shootings brought the issue of black rights to the forefront of society. As the presidential election has heated up, these two issues were brought together as black activists from the group were seen protesting against Bernie Sanders as well as Donald Trump. All of this brought up the question of who, if anyone, is funding the movement.

In the midst of all of this activity, a rumor began swirling that suggested that billionaire philanthropist and liberal activist George Soros was behind the Black Lives Matter movement, to the tune of $33 million in contributions. This rumor, though unsubstantiated, took hold and was repeated in several major media outlets, including a story on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Report.” Even with all this coverage, the rumor has never been confirmed, and in fact, a spokesman for George Soros’ Open Society Foundation has now come out saying there is no truth whatsoever to the rumors.

An article in The Daily Beast quoted Ken Zimmerman, who is the Director of US Programs at the Open Society, which is Soros’ liberal leaning charitable foundation, as saying that while he really can’t speculate on the rumor, he does know for sure that it is “wrong.”

Zimmerman pointed out that even beyond the unlikeliness of George Soros’ funding activities during protests (“we don’t fund protests, per se”), the assumption that the group has given $33 million to Black Lives Matter is just wrong. “I don’t know where one begins to reconstruct something like that,” he said.

Black Lives Matter is an amorphous protest group at this time, which includes blogs and in person meet ups to protest rallies and Facebook pages. The decentralized nature of the “group” makes it impossible to put a finger on where $33 million would even be given.

George Soros has given support to the Hillary Clinton campaign, however, helping her PAC raise $2 million. It’s this and the protests against Sanders that are part of what lead to the rumors.

Again, Soros Open Society Foundation has given over $826 million to broad-base charities domestically and abroad. The Black Lives Matter group, however, is not one of the groups on that list.
