Philanthropist Bruce Levenson Brings Legal Claim Against AIG December 9, 2016

The former ownership group of the Atlanta Hawks NBA franchise, headed by Bruce Levenson may have sold the team over one year ago, but they have failed to find a resolution to an insurance claim lodged with the insurance giant AIG. The insurance claim was brought following the mutual termination of the contract of former Hawks General Manager Danny Ferry who agreed to the termination just two days before the sale of the franchise was announced; Bruce Levenson’s legal team had already discussed a claim with AIG prior to departure from the team because of comments and actions they believed amounted to constructive dismissal.

Bruce Levenson played a major role in the NBA community for over a decade after he and his consortium took control of the franchise and led the Hawks to become the number one seed during their final season as owners. As the head of The Hawks, Bruce Levenson spent much of his time seeking to protect and enhance the NBA brand through a dedication to joining the NBA Board of Governors, and a decision to lead the Hawks into various philanthropic pursuits. UCG Founder Levenson’s own career shows his skill as a business leader, which includes his development of new technologies used in the TechTarget and GasBuddy brands.

According to ESPN, the legal team for the Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC consortium have stated the financial settlement being sought is confidential, but the failure of AIG to respond to the insurance claim in any way has led the the case being brought in a Fulton County Court. Bruce Levenson’s legal team has stated they are bringing a case for breach of contract because of the failure of AIG to communicate with Levenson’s consortium over the status of the claim.

Handy Saved My Dinner Party By Cleaning My Home Beforehand

Having a dinner party was something that was my idea, but I didn’t think of everything that needed to be done beforehand. Home cleaning is what I completely forgot about, and there was a lot of cleaning that had to be done. I told my husband to clean the home while I was away at work, especially since he had the week off, but he doesn’t listen so well. I thank goodness for my friend who told me about Handy because they really saved me, especially since it was only a couple of days before my dinner party.

I went on to the onthesceneny.com website, and it was the first time that I had ever been seen so many services in one place. I made sure to read all the details that I could find as well as some reviews, and to say that I was impressed is really a big understatement. I found that a lot of people were very satisfied with the cleaning services that Handy was providing them, and many stated that the workers were some of the best professionals that they’d ever seen. I was sold, so I created my account and made payment for the cleaning services.

Those workers are no joke because they were supposed to be at my home by 12 PM and were there by 11:50 AM. I was so delighted that they were early, and I had to go off to work by 1 PM, so having them there early was great for me. My husband stayed to supervise, but I came home to an exceptionally clean place, and I hadn’t seen my place that clean in years. I couldn’t believe that within the few hours that the Handy workers were my home that they made it cleaner than it’s been since I first moved in.

I know my home is very clean because some of my guests that came to my dinner party a day later were very impressed and notated how beautiful the place looked. I absolutely couldn’t thank Handy and their workers for everything they’ve done for me, and I’ve decided that making a regular appointment with Handy is something that I will do. I would always recommend a company like Handy to those who need their home cleaned quickly for any type of party or because they don’t have time to do the cleaning on their own.

Queen of Unicorns Doe Deere Shares Her Success Story October 26, 2016

Doe Deere, the cute and colorful founder of the cosmetics line Lime Crime, has a very unconventional success story. This “Queen of Unicorns” proves that people from all places and upbringings can achieve their dreams if they try hard enough! Now she shares her love for fun and makeup with the world.

Doe Deere was born in Russia and she moved to the US when she was 17 years old. She came into her own in New York (first Manhattan, then Brooklyn) and now lives and works in Los Angeles. Her imagination has always been big and still runs wild in the creation of her cosmetics today. But she wasn’t always in the makeup industry. When she first arrived in New York, she actually worked as a musician, her childhood dream. This career in the music industry taught her how to market herself and show appreciation for friends and fans who support you. She even met her husband through music, as they were in a band together; working together in the band helped establish their trust as business partners as well.

Doe’s first business venture was when she was only 13 in Russia. She bought temporary tattoos (which were a novelty) and sold them to her school mates. She marketed the tattoos to her classmates by wearing them herself and insisting they were cool. Her advice to girls is to “follow your heart” and find the thing about you that is unique. If you explore what makes you uniquely you, you will be able to achieve your fullest potential. Though she felt weird and alone as a child, Doe learned that there are other people out there like her, which is how Lime Crime was born.

Doe says she has always loved bright colors but could not find them in the cosmetics market. So in 2008, she decided to create her own makeup in the colors she desired. She soon found out that other people craved the same type of cosmetics, which is how Lime Crime became successful. Doe says she uses makeup, fashion, and hair to express herself without fearing that people are judging her.

Bruce Levenson Engaged In A Contentious Court Battle With AIG October 14, 2016

The Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment (AHBE) sold the last of their shares to Tony Ressler’s group back in 2015, but the story isn’t quite over for them yet. Now this group, led by chief owner Bruce Levenson is seeking damage compensation against AIG, the insurance company that covered them. AHBE decided to buy out former GM Danny Ferry’s contract when they sold the team so that he would get paid, and according to the policy they had with AIG all losses in such a situation were supposed to be covered. So far AIG has refused to accept the claims made for losses on the policy, and AHBE says they will seek payments not only for this, but also for court costs.

Bruce Levenson is a businessman, Forbes billionaire, political activist, and board member of several charity groups. His business career started in journalism, a side profession he undertook while he was attending law school at American University. He decided to go into full-time news publishing and his first publication was Oil Express, a journal about oil production and developments. This was where his media conglomerate company, Unified Communications Group (UCG) got started. UCG focuses on several industries, and later developed the GasBuddy app.

Levenson spent 11 years as the Atlanta Hawks owner from 2004 to 2014, and also purchased the NHL’s Atlanta Thrashers. While owner of the Hawks, he also helped fund several non-profit groups including Hoop Dreams and the Holocaust Museum. Levenson’s mother-in-law is a survivor of the holocaust, and the cause has led Levenson to start up programs teaching young people the importance of the event, and they can also become tour guides at the museum. Bruce Levenson is also patriotic towards Israel, and he once asked Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu to meet with US Secretary of State John Kerry to try and find initiatives for peace in the region.
