Equities First Opens New Office07.16.17

Equities First is one of the fastest growing specialty finance companies in the world. In a time when most lenders have cut back on providing loans to consumers, Equities First has greatly increased the amount of money that they provided to consumers. As opposed to giving an unsecured loan with a high interest rate, Equities First focuses on providing loans to borrowers that are looking to use the money to leverage their investment portfolios.

When Equities First gives a loan to a customer, they will able to take a lien on the investment portfolio. In the event that the loan goes into default, Equities First will be able to liquidate the stock portfolio. Since they have a strong type of collateral, the company is able to provide high leverage at low cost.

There are a variety of reasons why this type of loan is a good idea for a borrower. Some borrowers use the loans to leverage their portfolios, which allow them to earn a higher investment return. Others will use the loans to liquidate the stock without actually selling it, which can have big tax and investment management benefits.

Equities First was initially only focused in the United States, but the company has grown a lot in the past few years. Today the company has a major presence in countries all over the globe, including in Australia. The company recently announced that they are looking to make a major expansion in Australia, which will include opening a new office in Melbourne.

The new expanded office space will provide the company with the ability to hire more staff to support the future growth of the company. This will include a lot of asset management, operations, underwriting, compliance, and sales professionals that will be needed to ensure they grow and continue to succeed.

Talos Energy Successful in Historic Offshore Oil Discovery07.15.17

For the first time ever, a successful offshore well was drilled by Mexico’s private sector. Talos Energy LLC and its two partners Sierra ad Premier struck oil in an offshore well in late May of this year prompting praise from all in the oil and gas sector. Tim Duncan, the President and CEO of Talos Energy calls this feat both “historic” and “significant” and went on to praise the cooperation of both the United States and Mexico. Duncan also notes that projects like this are exactly the kind of results the industry was hoping to see come out of recent energy reforms inspiring the innovation necessary to make this landmark event possible. These energy reforms have sent optimism soaring in the oil and gas industries due to their incentive for the private sector to join both the exploration and acquisition markets in the US and Mexico. Going forward Talos and its partners will be drilling down over 14,000 feet in order to complete further testing on the surrounding offshore reservoirs. To ensure environmental safety, Talos has put a liner in place to protect both the discovered oil reservoirs and the surrounding aquatic life. Two contracts for production sharing have been carried out to partner with Mexico’s upstream oil and gas regulator, the National Hydrocarbon Commission. This discovery has reaffirmed the hypothesis that over 162,000 gross acres in this area off the coast of Mexico is rich with oil. It is thought that this is just a drop in the bucket for Talos Energy from the previously untapped area of oil recovery.

Talos Energy and the Zama-1 Oil Well Partnership.07.12.17

Talos Energy has been growing exponentially over the last few years. It even joined forces with a Mexican company and a European country to back in 2015 to bring a government run monopoly in Mexico after 80 years. If the company’s amazing track record, especially in how it treats its employees is anything to go by, then Talos Energy LLC is headed towards a very lucrative feature.
Talos Energy is a privately held company that has its head deep in the oil and gas industry. The company is actually just a profile company with the real players behind it being the Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE: APO). Talos Energy, hence, is just an affiliate of the Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE: APO) and benefits from their mother company through funding and management. The company is based in Houston and has already drilled and produced over 16, 000 barrels of it. It also has a consolidated human resource over 120 employees, with the advantage of being able to seek support from more of the Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE: APO) human resource pool.
The Zama-1 Oil Well Partnership
Talos Energy LLC was shrewd enough to team up with Premier Oil Plc and Mexican Sierra Oil & Gas to convince the people of Mexico to allow privately held entities to mine oil and participate in their energy sector. They were awarded mining rights through voting, but the deal stipulated that the drilling of the new offshore oil well would be under the oversight of the Mexican. Previously, the government had been drilling oil within their territories as a monopoly. The trend had existed for over 8o years, and the private sector was not welcome to participate due to geological concerns since most of the drilling is done under the Mexican seas.
The drilling expedition of the Zama-1 oil is estimated to take the three companies about 90 days to complete. The new offshore oil well, which is estimated to hold about 300 to 500 million barrels of oil, will present Talos Energy LLC one of the most lucrative opportunities it has ever come across. Considering just how motivated and efficient Talos Energy LLC’s employees are, the drilling is expected to be a big success.

Maryland to unveil another Kabbalah Center07.10.17

For all the students of Kabbalah teachings, a new Kabbalah center established in Maryland is here to make their lives even easier. Maryland residents who are avid followers of the Kabbalah teachings will cut their trips to Los Angeles as they will be able to access the pool of resources and knowledge associated with Kabbalah in Maryland.

The Center will open its doors to those who want to quench their thirst for spiritual guidance on September 29th. During the opening ceremony, the center shall offer a beginners’ guide on the basics of the Kabbalistic practices.

During the re-opening, the center shall also offer discounts of 40% on purchase of books and literature that they will be selling. The center will also give teachings on the relationship of the practice to astrology. Kabbalah shares close ties with astrology; many Kabbalah leaders have even published books on astrology. Preaching to the converted: how Kabbalah keeps on growing

Since the building was acquired, it has remained closed to facilitate renovation and construction of the spaces that shall be used as lecture halls and study areas where books shall be availed. Through its headquarters, the center shall attempt to make the study of its traditions universal.

Kabbalah Center’s popularity in USA and across the world has been on the rise. Dr. Rachel Glick, a Clayton counselor, credits the Kabbalah Center with helping her overcome her fears, grow professionally, and build stronger relationships.

What makes the practice more attractive is the fact that you don’t need to be of any precise religion to practice it. Because of the scientific advancement and discoveries that are made, many people have shifted from the mainstream forms of worshiping and are trying to find something that is more “real” to them.

Kabbalah has also been adopted by celebrities. Madonna was reported to be an active member and even went ahead to reserve Fridays for visiting a Kabbalah center. Other stars, such as Ashton Kutcher and his soul mate Mia Kunis, have also shown their association with Kabbalah publicly. Click Here for more.

For instance, Mr. Kutcher and Mia Kunis were spotted in Israel for the funeral service of Rabbi Philip Berg. The Kabbalah Center was established with the aim of spreading its teachings on unity and charity throughout the world and providing a platform where people can come and learn about it.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics on Pace to Pass Amazon07.07.17

Amazon has been the dominating force in online clothing sales for many years. If you want to see how big a force, just look at how many thousands of competitors are fighting for the same apparel dollars, and how Amazon is taking in 20 percent of all those sales. One clothing company is not sitting idly by and allowing the giant to keep making all the money, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is actually breaking sales records as they are working hard to actually pass Amazon in the very near future. When you are bringing in over $250 million in workout apparel sales, you must be doing something right.

 

Hudson speaks of her athleisure brand this way, it all comes down to a very unique membership platform and the sales process of reverse showrooming. To see the whole process working in real-time, we need to take a look at how things are going at the Fabletics stores inside the local mall. This is certainly not your average clothing store, women are enjoying the laid back relaxed atmosphere for sure. You will not see pressure from sales associates trying to make commissions, it is all about pampering the customer at these stores in the mall.

 

Inside the stores at the mall you find women who are requesting membership, enhancing the membership by taking a lifestyle quiz, window-shopping, and trying on all the clothing that they want while inside the store. Part of the perks of membership include items tried on in the store being uploaded to the Fabletics online store. This means that once these women have time to relax, they can log into their account and see everything they had already tried on inside the store waiting for them to complete that purchase. Knowing your size allows you to shop online and add many pieces you could not find at the mall.

 

Compare this shopping experience to one at Amazon or eBay. There you choose something you want and hope that the size is correct. Since all clothing manufactures cut their clothing differently, a medium in one brand could be much smaller in other. So you pay to have your workout apparel shipped, and when it is wrong, you have to ship it back and order again. By the time you finally get the right pieces to your home, this process may have taken several weeks and certainly become tiresome at this point.

 

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics members also get free shipping for their online orders, unlike other clothing retailers. Members enjoy discounted clothing deals, and even the assistance of a personal shopper. Your shopping assistant picks a piece of active-wear based on your lifestyle quiz answers, placing it in your cart for future consideration. When you are shopping at Fabletics for yoga pants, tank tops, or leggings, you are getting the lowest possible prices, fastest shipping, and best quality, not to mention pampering like no other clothing retailer. Amazon may not be enjoying that top spot for very much longer if things continue like this.

Join the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund to fight for Migrant Rights of the Hispanic Community07.02.17

Different non-governmental organizations work to support the civil rights of people who have been victims of discriminatory hiring practices, racial profiling, and other forms of bias. The organizations enlighten victims about their rights and help them pursue legal recourse. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/immigration/2014/12/16/proceeds-arpaio-suit-fund-asu-journalism-chair/20480479/

One such organization is the Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund that has been on the forefront in the fight for civil, human, and migrant rights for the Hispanic community. Most migrants face a lot of challenges trying to cross the eighteen-foot border fence when traveling to the US from Mexico.

Travel

Geography plays a huge role in reaching the US-Mexico border. Poor migrants from Central and South America have to ride atop a freight train that runs north through Mexico to cross the border. They are faced with dangers such as robbery, theft, and arrest by the Mexican police.

Lack of money

Numerous migrants are crossing the southwest border unlawfully come to the U.S. to look for work and who have a limited amount of cash. A coyote who helps you cross the border may charge lots of money, yet he does not guarantee a successful trip.

Health

The California Border is heavily guarded, which forces migrants to cross via the remote parts of Arizona. Those who get injured along the journey are left behind since they can’t keep up with the group.

About Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

Formed by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, the organization was established to help the Hispanic community that has borne the brunt of racially discriminatory practices and civil rights abuse for years. Jim and Lacey started off as journalists where they co-founded the Village Voice Media, an alternative weekly newspaper in Phoenix Arizona in the 1970s.

The company at the time was known as New Times Inc. while the publication was called New Times. By 2001, New Times Inc. had grown to publish 13 newspapers in the major states in the US. However, in 2006 Michael and Jim acquired the Village Voice group, thus re-launching to become the Village Voice Media Holdings.

Though Village Voice Media had borne their fair share of battles, Lacey and Larkin were the only journalists arrested for what they published and advertised. In 2007, they were jailed for allegedly violating the grand jury secrecy act by Joe Arpaio, a Maricopa County sheriff. The case would have ended their long careers and company had the County Attorney, Andrew Thomas not dropped the charges against them.

However, Larkin and Lacey moved to court to sue Thomas, Arpaio, and Dennis Wilenchik, the special prosecutor for the violation of the First Amendment Rights and misuse of power. In 2012, the 9th U.S. Circuit of Appeals ruled that there was no probable cause for the arrest since the prosecutor did not consult the grand jury. The County of Maricopa settled the case in 2013 by awarding Lacey and Larkin 3.75 million, which they used to establish the Frontera Fund.

The Fund

Larkin and Lacey Frontera Foundation aims to support groups that advocate for civil, Human, migrant rights, the freedom of speech, and civic participation of the minority Hispanic community in Arizona (including the Mexican Border).

Kabbalah University Increases the Number of Kabbalah Students Worldwide07.02.17

Studying the principles of Kabbalah is the foundation of the 40 Kabbalah Centres around the world. These Centres are physical locations where seasoned instructors in the ancient Wisdom Kabbalah hold classes on its practical aspects. Kabbalah is not a religion, as some may think, but it is a spiritual wisdom that has been passed down from generation to generation. It originated in the times before Abraham and was particularly studied among the priests and spiritual leaders.

The First Kabbalah Centre is Founded

In 1922, the first Kabbalah Centre established in Israel, and for several decades it was the only Centre. During the 1960’s, Rav and Karen Berg, who were Americans, became students, and they studied there for 10 years.

When they left, they came back to the United States and founded the first Kabbalah Centre in America during the 1980s. They translated many of the ancient docs of Kabbalah into English and as many languages as possible. Their translations were significant in the Kabbalah Centres because more people were able to study.

Kabbalah Goes Online

Kabbalah means “to receive,” and Kabbalah Centres allow individuals to study spirituality in a practical way, so they can receive wisdom on how to live their lives better. Instructors focus on the Creative Light, and students aim at becoming closer to its life-giving force.

Volunteering is the main activity for students at the Centers. Karen Berg believes that it is significant for the student to give to the community so that the community benefits of Kabbalah as well as the individual.

The Internet has allowed Karen Berg and her son to start Kabbalah University where people are able to study wherever they live. They no longer need to live close to a Kabbalah Centre established. Kabbalah University comes out of the Los Angeles Centre where students are taught online in virtual classrooms.

Meditations and videos are posted daily and it is a central location for events such as conferences, dinners, and study groups to be announced. Since Kabbalah has been on the Internet, students or interested parties can now participate in Kabbalah Wisdom classes online in their own homes or meeting rooms.

Mexico Loosense Eenrgy Monopoly, Talos Starts Drilling06.28.17

The Talos energy company announced that after the Mexican government announced that it would consider allowing private entities to invest in its energy resources, that it has secured first-drilling rights in their waters.

Since 1938 the Mexican government has had an enduring ban on private money venturing into its territories to drill for oil. For nearly 80 years private money, whether domestic or foreign, was prohibited from threatening the existing monopoly. Tat changed in 2015 when the Mexican government announced that, for the first time in nearly eight decades, it would consider allowing private investor to lobby for rights to drill. Talos, along with partners Premier Oil and Sierra Oil, lobbied the government back then and managed to secure the first-drilling rights.

Talos and partners started drilling in May of this year. The $16 million agreement allows them to continue their operations at the Zama-1 well, off the Sureste Basin near Tobasco, for 90 days. In that time Talos expects to extract somewhere between 100 and 500 million barrels of crude oil.

This first step for Talos and Mexico is being talked about as one of the biggest stories to come out of the energy industry in 2017, but it also points towards the future. Market speculators see this as an opportunity to bring in even more competition into Mexico’s resource market. This will prove beneficial for the Mexican economy and energy prices abroad, but it may increase global competition if other countries see the benefits that Mexico is receiving from this initiative and decide to do likewise.

About Talos Energy:

Talos Energy, based out of Houston, Texas, is an American oil and gas company that manages shelf and deep-water assets in the Gulf of Mexico. Since 2012 Talos Energy has increased its development of offshore exploration, spearheading efforts to discover wells in challenging waters.

With an intrepid corporate culture, Talos Energy has applied new techniques and made use of emerging technologies to excel in energy production. By expanding its influence in just five short years, Talos Energy has been able to cultivate lasting relationships in the industry as well as break into new territories with cautious nations.

Being named the Best Franchisee in the World was an honorable fete for Omar. However, he attributes his success to the more than 400 workers who run the Sushi Itto franchises in Mexico.
