Winning the Prestigious PR Title

Darius Fisher has been named the Business Development Individual of the Year by PR World Awards. Fisher is the current co-founder and CEO of Status Labs, a rising online public relations firm. The Business Development award is a prestigious honor for those in the public relations sector, as it honors only the highest accomplishments in the communication realm.
Darius has quickly risen to the top tier of public relations professionals with his astounding leadership role at Status Labs. In the past four years, he has single-handedly propelled the success of the company with an over 900 percent increase in revenue. Such gains are rarely heard of, but Darius attributes much of the company’s success to his employee incentive program.
Since launching his revised employee incentive program, which offers employees generous awards for their hard work, Status Labs has seen a decrease in turnover and increase in revenue.
To his peers and colleagues, Fisher is seen as an innovator in a field that is often difficult to navigate. Long known as reputation managers, public relations professionals have a much more complicated job now that the world spreads the majority of its information instantaneously. Although the increased challenge does not seem to face Fisher’s team at Status Labs, as they have grown to handle the accounts of Fortune 500 companies and large personalities from around the world.
Fisher’s expertise allows him to control how a person’s story is told. While many people have worked to establish their reputation, most are not versed in damage control when something goes wrong. Fisher’s magic keeps people afloat. He is able to do the unthinkable, from doctoring a Google search to better reflect a person, to building unbreakable online fortresses for clients to rely on. Regardless of Fisher’s ability to fix what seems like literally anything. Fisher says that Status Labs is willing to reject seedy clients on ethical grounds.

Fisher and Status Labs are a tour-de-force worth keeping an eye on!

New Brunswick DEVCO Needs More Time To Pay Back $20 Million CRDA Loan

According to DEVCO’s About Us page, The New Brunswick Development Corporation was mentioned by the New York Times as being a “powerful engine for economic growth.” However, these days, the non-profit urban real estate development company is under fire for an alleged unpaid $20 million loan from the CRDA or Casino Reinvestment Development Authority.

In an article by the PressOfAtlanticCity.com, the loan was issued in 2005 to DEVCO for a constructive facelift to the run-down The Heldrich, a 235-room New Brunswick hotel and conference center. The 11-story facility is located at Livingston Avenue in the heart of the city’s cultural district.

The Heldrich re-opened in 2007, but has since struggled in trying to draw guests. It is reported that the hotel is only operating at about 63.5 percent capacity. Nearby Johnson & Johnson corporation was listed as The Heldrich’s largest client.

New Jersey attorney Chris Paladino put together the multi-million Heldrich loan. He admits times have been challenging for the hotel, but ensured the media that the CRDA will be paid back, but that might mean in “a couple more years.”

Meanwhile, PressOfAtlanticCity.com claims that DEVCO corporation has been forced to use $776,000 of its own money to handle the most basic capital expenses, like mattress and carpet replacement.

Even though DEVCO was in charge of arranging the financing for the hotel and conference center, the Middlesex County Improvement Authority was, formally, the borrower of the $20 million.

 Devco has a number of other completed projects sprinkled around the area, including the Rockoff Hall University Apartments, Gateway Transit Village/The Vue, Civic Square Public Safety Building, Middlesex County Family Courthouse and others.

In addition, DEVCO’s newest development is related to nearby Rutgers University. The New Brunswick Development Corporation has broken ground on a $300 million initiative for the university.

Whistleblower Program Helps with Attorney

As with anything, it can be difficult to tell on the problems that are going on in the SEC. This means turning in a boss who may have threatened you or who may have offered more money to stay quiet about the situation. It is something that most people do not want to go through alone and something that they should not have to do if they do not want to. They need someone who works as an advocate and who knows the expert advice on how to do the things that they need to do in order to blow the whistle on the SEC.

The Labaton Sucharow group is one of these advocates. They are a law firm that specializes only in SEC whistleblowers and they work to make sure that they know everything about the process. They want to make sure that all of the people who want to report the SEC are able to do so and that they do it the right way. Because of this, they make sure that they know everything there is to know about the SEC and how the whistleblower practices work for people who are a part of the SEC.

This law firm is confident that they are able to provide expert advice because they are business lawyers. They have worked in business for over 50 years and have been very successful in that time. They have made many different friends in the industry and have learned as much as they can possibly know about the businesses that they help. The SEC is one of the businesses that they used to help when they made the decision to switch to being one of the only whistleblower-only law firms in the country that stands as an advocate for these people.

Recently, they were able to help someone who wanted to blow the whistle on the SEC poor practices. They knew that this person was going to turn in a lot of problems for the SEC and that the reward would be good but they did not know that it was going to be the second biggest that the SEC had ever given out. This was a great deal for the whistleblower and something that allowed them the chance to improve their image and give them a client who was extremely satisfied with the outcome of the case that they started.

Keeping Families Together: Securus Technologies

That is to say that, specifically, there are times in which families will have to endure the hardship of a loved one being incarcerated for one reason or another. During the incarceration period of a family member or friend, time does not stop by any means and shows absolutely no mercy to those affected by such a tragedy; however, Securus Technologies has implemented a way beyond traditional inmate visitation for families and friends to remain in contact with their loved ones who are in jail. Watch this video on Youtube.

Securus Technologies offers the unprecedented options of live video visitation and “jail voicemail” to friends and family of inmates. This is invaluable to inmates who have children and/or wives and the families thereof, because there are times when physical visitation at a jail is simply impractical or altogether impossible. These families who are unable to visit their loved ones are now able to not only hear the voices of the people they care most about, but also to see their faces and surroundings outside of jail. In many ways, Securus Technologies has developed possibilities only before tangible in the dreams of homesick inmates.

A demonstration video depicts an inmate utilizing Securus’s video visitation service to see his family at home in their living room singing “Happy Birthday“. The fact that the inmate is able to participate in the occasion feels momentous simply in viewing. The inmate proceeds to vocalize that he is utterly “overwhelmed” by being able to see and hear his family even though he is in jail.

The possibilities stemming from the work of Securus Technologies are endless; however, it is logical to believe that the ability to participate in occasions such as this over video visitation with family, friends and other loved ones will serve to invigorate inmates with the feelings of love and happiness, thus promoting good behavior and overall functionality as a result of the profound incentive of being physically present with those same loved ones sooner than later.

Services offered by Securus Technologies have changed and will continue to forever change the stigma and overall reception of incarceration and the visitation and communication associated with it. Inmates will never feel as separated and distant from those they love and cherish while in jail or prison as long as Securus Technologies is present to care for their emotional and mental health by offering what has for so long been denied to them.

The SEC Whistleblower Award That Has Applauded The Effort Of Labaton Sucharow

As a leading law firm, Labaton Sucharow has for a long time worked with clients to help them present their cases about securities violations. The company is working with their SEC Whistleblower attorney Jordan Thomas to see that all the cases presented by clients are handled professionally to help them get their deserving compensation for exposing securities violations to the SEC.

The SEC recently announced the second largest payout they ever gave to a whistleblower since inception in 2010 and it came as good news since the whistleblower was a Labaton Sucharow client. The law firm has made notable strides in the industry by first establishing a body that reviews the case to ensure the concerns presented are valid and would not amount to wastage of time at the courts.

According to Jordan A. Thomas, also the head of the Whistleblower Representation Program at Labaton Sucharow, the client was brave since the kind of information he exposed was crucial and many other people in the industry with the details could not share because of fear of exposing the investors and seniors. This is not the only case Labaton Sucharow has handled in the past since they have been working with whistleblowers since the SEC Whistleblower Program was incepted in 2010.

SEC Whistleblower Program
As a part of the 2010 amendment to the Consumer Protection Act, the Dodd-Frank provisions led to the introduction of several bodies that are tasked with championing the fight against securities violations. One such body is the SEC Whistleblower Program, which made it possible for whistleblowers to share information about securities violations from any part of the world. Through the program, thousands have presented their cases and have shared information that has helped to streamline the business world.

There are several provisions that came with the birth of the SEC Whistleblower Program and one of them is the introduction of the international whistleblower provision. This means one with information about securities violations can share regardless of the jurisdiction from which the individual comes. Through this provision, more than 11 percent of the cases reported in 2011 were from other countries.

Also a factor that has motivated whistleblowers to share information is the presence of the whistleblower protection. A whistleblower is protected from any kind of intimidation or getting fired when he/she reports about securities violations perpetrated by their employer. Having these changes in place has motivated more people to report wrong doings in different industries.

A Review Of The SEC Whistleblower Program And Labaton Sucharow’s Achievements

In the pursuit of violations perpetrated by individuals in the business world, Labaton Sucharow has helped many of their clients to get high rewards from the SEC. They have a team tasked with the review of cases and evidence to determine whether they can pass for compensation by the SEC and they also advise their clients about how they can present the case to command more recognition and rewards.

Their achievements include the latest awarding of their client by the SEC Whistleblower Program. The client received more than $17 million for sharing information about the violations that have prevailed in the financial services industry for many years. As Labaton Sucharow SEC Whistleblower Attorney Jordan Thomas cites, this is one of the cases where witnesses fear to present information to the SEC because it involves influential individuals.

However, this Labaton Sucharow client was brave enough to come out and through the support of the law firm, his case was able to earn the second best amount since the SEC Whistleblower Program was started in 2010.

There are still many cases pending at the Labaton Sucharow desks concerning securities laws violations and the firm has promised great service that will ensure the clients get assistance to pursue the issues seamlessly to completion. They are optimistic about the achievement of this kind of success in more of their clients and in curbing the violation of securities violations.

Learn about the SEC Whistleblower Program
The SEC Whistleblower Program is a product of the effort that was applied by the federal government to help curb the violation of securities laws. In 2010, the Consumer Protection Act was reviewed and several amendments made to allow better reporting capabilities among whistleblowers. Through this amendment, several bodies were formed, one of them being the SEC Whistleblower Program, which has been championing the fight against wrong doings in various industries.

Introducing the SEC Whistleblower Program came as a relief to many issues that were ailing the business world. It opened up avenues through which whistleblowers could use to share information about the violation of securities laws. One of the notable provisions that have motivated many to report violations is the fact that whistleblowers are entitled to compensation amounting to at least 10 percent of the sanction collected from the offender.

There is also a protection package that entails allowing whistleblowers to report anonymously and also ensures an employer cannot in any way intimidate an employee who reports violations to the SEC.

How the Life of George Soros Has Influenced His Stance on the Ukraine

A Glimpse Into the Life of George Soros
George Soros was born in Hungary in 1930. He is best known for being an immensely successful, wealthy and influential Hungarian investor and business mogul. He is also a generous philanthropist, author and a globally engaged activist. He currently resides in New York, and he contributes to many financial and left-leaning media outlets. The article being recapped below was written by him for one such outlet known as the Washington Post. His life has been more than interesting. Being born a Jew in Hungary, he had to learn to survive during the war, and he was always clever and avoided prison and deportation. In addition to his citizenship in the United States, he also holds citizenship in his native Hungary.

The Career and Passions of a Billionaire
George Soros is perhaps the wealthiest and most influential supporter of progressive and left-wing policies in the United States and European Union. He frequently funds liberal candidates and uses his influence to urge liberal political causes to come to fruition. In addition to his campaign spending, he is a well known philanthropist. He has given an estimated $11 billion to a myriad of causes between 1979 and 2015. The major piece of evidence backing this up was his influence and aid during Eastern Europe’s transition to capitalism in the 1980s. He is just very generous, and has a big political heart, which is why he is urging a bailout of the Ukraine by the European Union.

George Soros on the Ukrainian Debt Crisis
In the fall of 2015, George Soros wrote an article for the Washington Post, which he titled, centered around and made the case for a Ukrainian bailout. The Ukraine is having trouble paying off its loans to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the private investors of the National Bank of Ukraine. The central bank prints the currency used by the citizens. When the money is printed, it is loaned to the citizens with interest attached to each unit of currency printed. The money is paid back through federal income taxes. The IMF is a global bank comprised of financial delegations from each country, and when it gives a loan out, the loan money comes from the income taxes of the citizens of the member nations loaning the money. Unfortunately for the Ukraine, it has undergone some serious strife with Russia’s power on the rise, and it has been unable to repay its loans, primarily to the IMF. George Soros wants the matter resolved because he is fond of the country.

George Soros Has Faith in the Ukraine to Put Faith Back in the EU
He loves the idea of the European Union, free trade and positive globalism with open borders. He has openly stated this many times, and during the election for the European Parliament and the elections held in the Ukraine in 2014, the Ukraine supported the EU and how it was being run. He has a vision of the Ukraine joining the EU and becoming a peaceful, productive member far away from Russia and its nationalism.

How The SEC Whistleblower Program Has Been Instrumental In Reporting Securities Violations

Whistleblowers from different walks of life are reporting several security violations to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Back then in 2010, the Congress enacted two acts to guide whistleblowers across the country. These include the Consumer Protection Act and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform act. The Consumer Protection Act was effective during the Great depression of the U.S economy. On the other hand, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street act developed a whistleblower program aimed at providing employment protections and financial incentives. Under this act, people were required to report any violations regarding federal security laws to the SEC.

The Whistleblower Representation Practice

Labaton Sucharow law firm was the first firm in the nation to establish a law practice focused exclusively on advocating and protecting SEC whistleblowers. The SEC’s Whistleblower Representation Practice was built on the firm’s securities litigation platform.  These experts provide unconditional representation to whistleblowers.

The practice is headed by Jordan A. Thomas who previously held the position of Assistant Chief Litigation Counsel and Assistant Director in the SEC’s Division of Enforcement. Jordan played an executive role towards the establishment of the Whistleblower Program throughout his tenure at the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC). He contributed in documenting the proposed legislation and implementing rules. The SEC is focused exclusively on helping whistleblowers to make important decisions on whether, when and how to report securities violations without professional or personal regrets.

How Whistleblowers Are Paid

According to the program’s rules, the SEC is mandated to pay qualified whistleblowers 10 to 30% of the revenue generated as a result of SEC enforcement sactions. Whistleblowers are also entitled to additional awards if a threshold of $1 million is met during monetary enforcement sanctions. Consequently, the Dodd-Frank Act prohibits any retaliation by employers leashed against whistleblowers who comply with the program’s rules. Whistleblowers can report any securities violations discretely when represented by a lawyer.

The Whistleblower Representation Team

To learn more about the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) Whistleblower Program or request case evaluations, one can contact the Whistleblower Representation Team via phone or email. One can also find more information on the SEC’s website. All case evaluations and initial consultations are confidential, free and protected by the lawyer-client privilege. When consulting the Whistleblower Representation Team, one is not required to disclose personal information or names of people who have committed securities violations. Translation services are also available upon request for international whistleblowers.
