Set Your Vacation Plans for the Best Ski Resorts in Lake Tahoe

Jul
24

In recent years, Lake Tahoe ski resorts have become top destinations for a winter ski vacations. Lake Tahoe has an average snowfall of approximately 250 inches every season with additional ‘fake snow’ added as needed during the season. Elevations on the mountains range from 7,500 – 9,000 feet.

But that’s not all. Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows also have a full schedule of events in the mountains and the pool during the summer months. The majestic mountains are open for incredible hiking and biking.

Squaw Valley Ski Resort is located on the grounds of the 1964 Olympic Stadium and Village, which has been managed by Andy Wirth since 2010. Wirth is a hands-on leader at http://squawalpine.com, and he immediately began a six million dollar renovation to make it an outstanding resort for skiing.

He rebuilt two ski lifts, improved the grounds and rebuilt parts of the lodge, but he didn’t stop there. In 2015, Wirth announced to the public that Squaw Valley was building a Gondola that would unite Squaw Valley to their new acquisition, Alpine Meadows Ski Resort, and this would be a huge attraction. Whether for the summer or the winter, the connection between the two resorts would increase the popularity of these two destinations.

This connection has been tickling the ears of Tahoe skiers since 2011. Wirth has actively been working on the development and plans as he is also drawing up plans to enlarge the base of the Village.

Wirth is continually improving the resorts. Squaw Valley was internationally known in 1964 when the resort hosted the Olympics, and today Wirth is improving the resort to create one of the best ski resorts worldwide with the best amenities of the Lake Tahoe Vacation Resorts.

Squaw Valley Holdings and Andy Wirth are not all about the tourists, though. Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Foundation or SAF is a 501C non-profit organization that is “paying it forward” for many young people with scholarships and education. The organization is supporting coaches and athletes in the community, too.

Donations are accepted so that it can reach more people in trail races, athletes who are performing on the mountains of Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, and those that are supported by scholarships. The skiing experience in Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows will excite every member of your family when you visit the spectacular mountains here in North Lake Tahoe.

Devco On the Hook Until Million Dollar Payments Resolved

Jul
06

When you consider the possibilities of any organization to conduct business, the first thing that they actually need is the capital and the cash to be able to do so. People need paid, whether in the form of salaries and insurance down to the suppliers and materials themselves. However, when you look into the recent questions surrounding a loan like the one on the Press of Altantic City, it starts to become very difficult to even conceive why a company would want to do business with an organization that falls multiple millions of dollars behind on a loan.

When you consider a company like DEVCO that is only trying to create a top of the line hotel and conference center, you also have to consider the events behind this situation. On the one hand it can be difficult to work with organizations that aren’t able to fulfill their promises and repay their debts. Then again, on the other hand how can you really assign blame to a company that may have been trying to create jobs and revitalize an area and just so happened to do so during one of the harshest economic times in recent history? The fact remains that Devco is a tremendous developer of properties and real estate investments. That being said, the current questions surrounding a loan of $20 million look to a major red flag for anyone who wants to do business with them.

It appears as though Devco is going to need to find out how to correct this current situation. As many people are trying to decide what this means for them, the fact of the matter remains that in this Devco deal and loan more than $1 million was just missed in a payment due, and more than $7 million is now in arrears on the loan that was originally $20 million.

The former London trader Sanjay Shah seems to always be looking to develop his skills to become the best they could possible be in a range of different areas, which has seen him conquer the London financial markets, boutique financial services, and in recent years the best in philanthropic giving. Sanjay Shah enstablished his own Solo Capital brand after spending a number of years as a broker on the London markets, but this was not the first time Shah has looked to change career focus as he seeks to find the best life for both himself and his family. Shah was originally a medical student studying in london, U.K. before finding his true career love as a financial expert.

The establishment of Solo Capital came about after Shah had seen the problems caused on the markets by the 2008 economic slowdown. Sanjay Shah was facing a career that would take him away from his young family because of long hours and the hours of research he would have had to continue as a broker in the City; Shah took a chance to follow a different path as the founder of Solo Capital, which offers a range of boutique services to clients in countries around the world.

Solo Capital has continued to grow from its base in London to open offices close to the home of Sanjay Shah in Dubai.

Jun

During the lifetime of any one person, establishing a legacy that lasts for many years is something that many aspire to do. Stephen P. Murray, the man behind CCMP Capital, would have been a good example of this in recent times.

Stephen Murray was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1962 but his youth was growing up in North Tarrytown, New York. He attended Sleepy Hollow High School and after this he enrolled in at Boston College, to which he graduated from in 1984 with a degree in economics.

After he had earned his masters in 1989, Murray then went on to join the MH Equity, a combination the work of Manufacturers Hanover’s private equity group with their leveraged financing unit. Over the years the company had gone through three mergers and eventually all of them formed into JP Morgan by the year 2000.

By 2006, Murray had made his most noted business move, which was being a founding partner of CCMP Capital, which grew out of JP Morgan. The company’s main goal was to handle leveraging, buyouts and equity and all of their respective investments. By 2007, Murray was eventually named to be the CEO of the company.

George Soros Making Major Moves in Current Market

Jun

If you have never heard of George Soros then you could be in for a major shock in the near future. Not only has George Soros been one of the top influences in many different aspects of society, but he has also risen towards the top of the list of the wealthiest people in the world. George Soros is someone that is known by many, but it is the actions of George Soros that investors are paying attention to as of recently. The reason for all of this is fairly simple. When someone who as as much wealth as George Soros does makes moves in the market then others will watch. However, when someone near the top of the wealth list starts to move major portions of their entire portfolio into different asset classes then there is a good chance heads will turn.

George Soros has taken a tremendous position in gold which is not only a major investment strategy that signifies he is afraid of the current markets, but because of the major portion that he put into a safe class such as gold, you have to start wondering what could possibly be on the horizon. Simply by moving his position and investing heavily and significantly into a specific set of investments such as gold, George Soros is essentially saying he is so scared about what could happen to stocks that he doesn’t even want to ride out the potential bad times or deal with any of the hardships that could be hitting the economy in the near future.

When you think about where you could potentially put your money to hide from any possible downturns in the economy, you have to consider why gold is such a tremendous class. People not only come after it because it has scientific properties that make it much better than other metals, but when you consider the natural supply and demand factors then you know gold is always in high demand. Furthermore, when you think about all of the potential jewelry options involving gold, there are certainly a significant amount of options that instantly come to mind on where gold could be. Gold has value because people want to be able to show that they have it.

In short, gold is a resource that is scarce and people will definitely want it in general. However, if you can buy low and then sell high (when the economy may turn bad), then you could completely capitalize just because you are prepared. If you are considering what George Soros’ gold strategy is and how it could effect you, perhaps it’s time to check into Philip Diehl and the US Money Reserve and see what your options are.

Oil Production on the Decline in Venezuela

Jun
17

Venezuela is seeing the biggest drop in oil production in a decade. The crippling month of May was shown in a Linked In report that the already weakening economy of Venezuela is getting worse by the day. The decline of oil production is down to 120,000 barrels a day, to 2.37 million barrels a day, according to data from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries. With Venezuela facing an economic hardship, major oil companies cut back on operations as the country is failing to pay multi-billion dollar debts with partners.
Venezuela relies heavily on the income from oil. Expert Manuel Gonzalez says that over spending being a major problem, they can no longer bring in the millions of barrels of oil per day that they were longing for. The last time oil production was this low in Venezuela was in 2003, when it was completely halted due to a strike led by PdVSA workers who wanted then-president Hugo Chavez discharged from power. The price of oil has impacted the revenue of Venezuela so much so that they can no longer afford the cost of a barrel of oil per barrel to turn a profit, or break even for that matter.

 

Alexei Beltyukov Figuring Out Ways to Make Economy Boom

Jun
07

When you think about the many different business owners, economists, politicians, or just theorists in general who understand how the economy works, the fact of the matter is there are many opinions on how to approach progress. However, one such individual is start to preach some economic strategy that seems to be turning heads the entire time. While not everyone has heard his message yet, it is the ideas of Alexei Beltyukov that are starting to make rounds as a possible solution and not just another idea.

The basic idea of the original article not only went into the ties of Alexei Beltyukov and small businesses, but it focused on Alexei Beltyukov stressing just how important small businesses are. When you continue to have individuals devoting their time, effort, and energy towards their own personal goals then you are able to bring the greatest number of opportunities to all due to the incentive. However, it just doesn’t matter how much focus is placed on the academic teaching of small business ownership being important if the political climate isn’t prepared to create an economy to support small businesses.

When a general area is able to focus their efforts on producing economic opportunities for all, then there is a much better chance anyone will be able to actually create a small business. At the end of the day it isn’t about taglines or about trying to fix the entire economy all in one fell swoop. The point of any small business is to help generate enough income and wealth so that the original owners and stakeholders of the business are able to provide themselves with a living. When you don’t have a landscape in place to actually allow those business owners to be be incentivized, then they simply won’t risk their time and effort. That’s why Alexei Beltyukov says the focus now is on incentivizing the business owners. Read more about Alexei on About.me.

Lake Maracaibo Is Officially The Lightning Capital Of The World

May
25

Lake Maracaibo gets 297 lightning nights a year, and it will likely never go down according to RT. The lake has long been a place where lightning happens more than most places, but scientists have figured out that they get 297 nights of lightning a year. There could be 200 or more lightning strikes a night when this happens says expert Dr. Jose Manuel Gonzalez, and it is all over the lake. The lake has been an intensive hotbed of lightning for a long time, but scientists have been trying to figure out why it happens so much over the lake.
The mountain wind and the valley that the lake sits in all help make lightning, and the tropical climate makes it just warm enough all year for the lightning to form. This is very important because it is going to help make the lightning come up more often. There is not this combination in many other places in the world, and Lake Maracaibo happens to be the most active place for lightning.

Venezuela is a natural wonder that has many things that it can credit itself for. The lightning capital of the world over Lake Maracaibo is something that everyone needs to see at least once. Scientists are still learning about the lightning, but they are also getting pictures that are truly amazing to behold. Anyone who is ready to see a wonderful sight should make their way to the lake.
