Sam Tabar Pushes Up On Investment Plans

10/26/2016 Updates:
Sam Tabar is now writing for the Huffington Post, as a financial contributor. Sam will take on topics ranging from personal finance, to hedge funds, and what the average investor can do to help their money grow. Drawing on a lifetime of legal, and financial experience, Sam will help provide expert insight into a field that continues to confound many.

Investment expert Sam Tabar has officially moved on up in the financial industry, by way of gaining new positions on the job.

Tabar, who is already the current chief operating officer of FullCycle Energy Fund, has also been awarded with the honor of being named the new chief financial officer of Awearable Apparel. Both of these developments mark another note on the impressive resume of this particular New York based strategist.

With the new role in mind, Sam Tabar could already be considered of the more up and coming leaders of the new generation, and his previous background and work only give more way to that idea. This makes sense, given that CrunchBase lists that Tabar earned his education from Oxford but earned another degree from the Columbia Law School and used what he learned from both high-ranking schools to make a name for himself in the years afterward.

Even after his collegiate and post-graduate career, Sam Tabar was ensuring that he was someone to take note of, when he was working as a legal counsel for a law firm as well as a capital strategist for an investment firm, such as being an associate for Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher and Flom LLP. Here, he counseled clients on how to form and manage their own hedge funds, as well as any regulatory issues that were related to hedge funds to each of his many clients.

By 2004, Sam Tabar had decided to move on from being an associate at Skadden, despite his prowess at the position, and sought out a position as a financial strategist at PMA Investment Advisers. While there, Tabar was tasked with managing all aspects of a $2 billion hedge fund and did so by first developing his own marketing plan that would let his fund be ranked among the best in the business. As a result he ended up producing a list of well over 2,000 different potential investors and then set up a rolodex that included another 400 people who he thought would be intriguing and worthy enough to start investing in the fund.  Contact Sam on Thumbtack, for questions about his services.

Chris Burch Provides A Creative Side to the Entrepreneur Industry

Just like the technology industry, the fashion industry has seen a lot of changes throughout the years. These two industries do have one thing in common: They tend to grow and change together.

In the past, technology has grown with the popularity of what a person considers fashionable. In the 70s, the boom box was not only a technological advance but also a fashion statement. In the 80s, they were added to movies which increased the popularity. In the 90s, a personal experience came about with the Walkman. Later still, the experience changed again with the iPod. As the technology changed, the popularity of the products became more and more fashionable.

Fashion designers, by definition, crave giving consumers what the desire. Technology can help them do that. People find innovation and functionality fashionable. Fashion can advance through technology.

Fashion can even protect us. It’s not necessarily fashion to wear bike protection, for instance, but fashion designers can create fashion that has a job. The Airbag for Cyclists, which is an airbag that pops out of neckwear to protect the head, or Frontline Gloves, that allow information to be sent between firefighters, are just a few examples.

Sometimes fashion can even help technology. Glasses haven’t exactly had a great fashion reputation until very recently. Technology was helped by fashion, as some designers use them as a trend, allowing more people to accept them as a fashion statement.

Fashion can be created by recycled materials, killing two birds with one stone: Creating fashion and helping the environment. Fashion and technology can also be used together to create energy. New clothing can capture the kinetic energy to power things.

These views are shared by Christopher Burch, founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital. As an entrepreneur, he has a vision for market opportunities, imagination and creativity helps create businesses that have a positive, lasting impact on their consumers’ lives.

He has over 40 years of experience in the industry and has been a part of the growth of over 50 companies. Burch Creative Capital’s portfolio includes the likes of Poppin, Cocoon9, Voss Water and ED by Ellen Degeneres.

Burch’s company is currently undergoing the support of developing consumer product brands from retail to apparel and home furnishings. Also included in that list are organic foods, technology and hospitality, with companies like Brad’s Raw Foods, Chubbies, Soludos and BaubleBar.

Choosing the Right Planner

New York City is one of the largest cities in the world. Living there, or in the surrounding area, you have access to just about anything that you want. This includes event planners. There are many event planners in New York City and one of the best is Twenty Three Layers. Twenty Three Layers was founded by Jessica Boskoff and she has years of experience. She prides her business on making sure each event is special and that no two are alike. There is a reason why Twenty Three Layers is the event planning company in NYC and many satisfied customers can attest to their service.

When looking for an event planner, there are some things that need to be considered to ensure that any event is a success. Before even setting out to choose a planner, you need to decide why you want to hold an event and why you want an event planner. Are you celebrating a special person or a milestone? Do you want to get a certain theme across but are unsure how to do so?

One more thing to do before finding a planner, a budget needs to be decided on. Once a budget is established, the search for a planner can begin. Word of mouth is a good way to get started but that should not be the only reason. Do some research on anyone you are considering. Check out their previous work and any certifications they may have. Interview at least three planners before choosing the one you want to work with.

Once you have chosen your planner, have a face-to-face meeting if possible. Lay out your vision and be sure to ask a lot of questions. Settle on a plan and a budget and work out all of the fine print. Once all of that is settled, work closely with your planner throughout the entire process. Communication will be key to ensuring a good result.

Choosing a planner can be a tough event but putting in the time to research will pay off in the end.

Goettl Air Conditioning Offers its Services to the Elderly

Jean Jackson lives in Los Vegan. She is ninety four years old. Not long ago, she used to rely on two tiny window conditioners to ensure that her house was cool during the hot summer. The air conditioners currently worn out and most of the time, they do not function. She had some good air conditioners in the past, but they got old and could not be replaced. The air conditioners are no longer available in the market. She has been living in the house for over three decades, and it requires rewiring so that it can support the new air conditioning systems.

Jean depends on the Social Security for a living. Purchasing a new system in the modern times is impossible for her. For the senior people living in Las Vegas like Jean Jackson, the summer can be a dangerous time without the air conditioning system. According to CDEP, the elderly have a difficult time adjusting to the changes in temperature compared to the young. These individuals are more likely to suffer from various chronic conditions that mostly change the way the human body responses to heat.

In the past, Jean Jackson was hospitalized due to a heatstroke. When her two tiny systems collapsed and stopped functioning, paramedics in the area advised her to relocate to a nursing home to avoid the risk of getting a heatstroke. The summer heat is too hot for jean Jackson.

Not long ago, Goettl Air Conditioning partnered with its sister organization, known as The Sunny Plumber to help Jean Jackson. The company, led by Ken Goodrich, thought that it was a good idea to look after the elderly individuals in the community.

The plumbing company managed to fix the water line in Jean Jackson’s house, while Goettl Air Conditioning, helped by a company known as Daikin-Goodman Global set up a good system that is able to warm the house in winter and cool in during summer. The cost of the whole project was too high for Jackson, and she could never have afforded it on her own.

Goettl Air Conditioning was started in 1939 by Adam Goettl and Gust. The company brought its services to Les Vegas in 1986. The 2007 recession affected the company, forcing it to move to Southern Nevada. In 2015, the company returned to Les Vegas. The company is currently led by Ken Goodrich, and it has experienced a lot of success. The company offers consumers new units, repairs and maintenance of residential air conditioning systems and heat ventilation.

Video Visitation Technology by Securus Technologies is Helping Bridge the Gap between Prisoners and their Families

For several years, Securus Technologies has been at the forefront of providing telecommunication technology to U.S. State prisons. The company is actively serving more than 3,400 institutions that includes prisons, correctional facilities, intelligence agencies and various criminal justice organizations. According to recent estimates, nearly 1.2 million inmates are served by the company in prisons across the United States. Perhaps, the development of advanced prison technology can be attributed to ongoing research and development activities at Securus. For instance, Securus Technologies also holds the largest number of patents in the industry, numbering more than 140. Similarly, every month the U.S. patent office continues to receive applications for new patents from Securus Technologies.

Still, one of the most innovative technologies that the company has ever presented is video visitation suite. As the name suggests, video visitation allows families of prisoners to contact their loved ones inside the various U.S. prisons using video transmission. It is also true that video conferencing is nothing new as almost anyone can make video calls using numerous video software. However, in the context of U.S. prison industry, the high-speed video visitation is an extraordinary effort. Unlike regular video calls, it is usually very complicated to bypass various security layers to transmit high-speed data packets inside the prison complex. However, the innovative solution by Securus Technologies is able to rectify traditional shortcomings of similar applications.

The power of video visitation is evident from the claims of Securus Technologies that children of incarcerated prisoners can easily share their homework with their parents. As such, the user-friendly video interface allows prisoners to contact their loves ones easily just like anyone outside the prison walls. Due to the high streaming video, prisoners and their kids can also enjoy special moments including birthdays, weddings, family reunions and graduation ceremonies. According to the management of Securus Technologies, video visitation will allow prisoners to strengthen bonds with their kids. As a result, prison officials and developers of the application hope that regular video contact with kids and their families will increase the rehabilitation process. Hopefully, these prisoners will feel it easier to integrate with the society upon their release.

Despite the advantages, what caught the eye of industry experts is the potential use of the video visitation technology using popular applications like iPhone, iPad and Smart phones. Due to advance mechanics, video visitation software allows users of these devices to seamlessly connect with the hardware used in the prison. The application is particularly interesting considering that many prison facilities are opting for the use of iPad facilities that they can offer to prisoners who show good behavior. If prisons continue to adapt such technologies, new updates and development in video technology will be very interesting.
