Equities First Holdings Takes Lending To A New Level

For over one decade, Equities First Holdings has been offering credit solutions to clients in various countries. The company, incepted in 2002, has specialized in alternative lending, which includes stock-based loans. Since few years ago, the company has seen an influx of borrowers. This shift can be attributed to new regulations that have changed the banking industry.

The new rules introduced have increased interest rates and the lending criterion used has become more stringent for average borrowers. Therefore, more people have been forced to go for alternative lending options, which include getting credit from institutions like Equities First Holdings.

Stock-based lending has regardless of the situation in the banking industry stood out for the different benefits borrowers are able to access. One of the reasons this is an option that has seen growth is due to the fact the regulations that are used are friendly to the borrower. Borrowers are allowed to access any amount depending on the type of stocks they hold. This may not be the case with banks, which require a lot of documentation and proof before they issue one with a loan.

Most importantly, stock-based loans offer fixed rates that do not change over time as would be the case with some banks. The inflation levels present in the market cannot affect the value of the interest rate specified while issuing a loan, so the borrower is able to enjoy repayment without suffering other costs.

Adrian Jose Velasquez Figueroa on the Panama Canal

In his interesting article on Panama, mentor Adrián José Velasquez Figueroa touches briefly on the Panama Canal. He says that currently the canal is responsible for approximately 33 percent of all income in Panama. He also points out that approximately 14,000 ships pass through the canal annually to get from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and vice versa. While all these facts are true, Adrián José Velasquez Figueroa fails to talk about the bright future for the Panama Canal, himself and those whom he chooses to help.

Exciting plans are in the works to greatly expand the canal. Currently, only small ships can pass through the canal. Therefore, larger ships must still take longer routes meaning their cargo headed to the United States is usually off-loaded in Long Beach, California. This bustling port often gets backlogged tremendously causing long delays on Crunchbase.

As more cargo gets unloaded in Panama and as more ships use the canal to pass between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, more jobs will be created. The offloading of ships in Panama also means that short-term new jobs on dateas.com will be created to spruce up the country’s infrastructure while long-term jobs will be created to handle these goods. When this occurs, trading in Panama will become stronger than ever.

If you are an entrepreneur like Adrián José Velasquez Figueroa, then this is very exciting news. Figueroa has the experience to make important business decisions while most people are still trying to gather the facts. Since he has never been selfish, however, he wants to share that knowledge with young people who would like to come to Panama to learn how to run a business.

Besides the Panama Canal, the country has much to recommend it including the Panama Railroad, lots of ecotourism opportunities and a capitol city that has a jungle inside the city’s boundaries. Contact him today and set up a time to meet and learn even more about exciting opportunities in Panama.

Lake Tahoe Skiing in Squaw Valley

Since hosting the Winter Olympics in 1960, Lake Tahoe’s Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows has remained the best and most respected ski resort in the world. This beautiful setting affords perfect areas for any level of skier and snowboarders, to those who are just learning to the most advanced in the pastimes. Lake Tahoe Resort is very easy to find. It is comfortably and conveniently located right between Truckee and Tahoe with convenient shuttle access to a wide range of other nearby areas. The staff at the resort are trained to make guests as comfortable as possible while they enjoy their stay in refined yet rugged Chalet-style lodges.

The resort area is huge with tons of space to have outdoor fun. Guests will find over the 2,400 acre area over 100 trails, countless chairlifts, and even more countless prime skiing and snowboarding slopes. The 2015-2016 ski season was a very good one. But Winter skiing is not the only time things are going here. Squaw Valley has a wide range of popular events the whole year around. But its Winter ski season does remain its most popular time and primary concentration. The coming 2016-2017 ski season promises to be a good one at Squaw Valley.

Although Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows were for many years separate resorts, but there has long been a connection and cooperation between the two. However, although they have long worked in connection with each other, the two close together resorts remained separate entities until 2011 when the owners of Squaw Valley bought Alpine Meadows and made turned them into one resort. The combined Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are also a giving organization. It often holds fundraising races and uses the funds to support Winter sports athletes and coaches.

Anyone can enter these races and anyone can purchase a ticket to watch them. There are also hoodies and other types of race-themed clothing available for purchase. But although Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are now one entity, you still have to drive a little bit to go in each resort separately. Moves are now being made to change that and in the near future the two will be joined into one whole.

Securus: Fighting for the Little Guy

Sometimes the little guy gets stomped on by the big guy and they can’t do anything about it and the reason they can’t do anything about it is because no one is in their corner and there is no one to stand up for them, fight for them, and help them. They can’t do it all by themselves. However, Securus prides themselves on fighting for the little guy and doing all they can to help the little guy. They believe it is their civic duty and they were born and raised that way. Quite frankly, they don’t know any other way to operate, as it is in their blood and in their DNA to do the right thing and help out the people who need help and don’t have a voice.

Right now, they need help against GTL, also known as Global Tel-Link, which is a leading communications provider for inmates. They know that inmates get a bad rap and not a lot of people are going to feel sorry for them or their families. Because of this, they have taken advantage of their customers who just want to speak to their loved ones. It is a big part of the recovery process, as it helps them get the help they need, feel better, and get on the straight and narrow.

Securus is fighting back by releasing press releases that will expose all of the ways that GTL has misled the customer, lied to them, and treated them poorly. They have taken their money from them and charged outrageous prices. With this press releases being exposed and being out there, I have a hard time believing they can deny the facts.

The New Age of ClassRoom Communication

In the upcoming age of Technology and Communication we have soared higher then ever before! Years ago our communication between our teachers, students and parents have always been hand written notes and parent teacher conferences. What if we had a new way in order to better communicate with our teaching staff as parents? Introducing, Class Dojo. This innovative and up coming Tech savvy computer application is a wonderful way to communicate with your child’s teaching staff and at the same time encourage your child. Upon entering the sign on screen of the application, you are able to see your child’s name, classroom teacher and how they are doing in that class. Your child will have a “positive feedback” score. For example if your child did very well with a project in class they may have a point for “working hard”. You child’s teacher uses the system for positive feedback for your child to help them with encouragement and empowerment. The application act as a digital portfolio that can grow over the year. The students can also post their artwork, class projects, reports, speeches, books, poems and more! The Application itself has many great features, one being, School Story, which allows school leaders to share messages, pictures and videos on day to day events in a secure and safe classroom setting. The Class Dojo is designed to share classroom information within the child’s family, it also has the capability for the school superiors to create an entire community within the school. The principals and leadership officers of each school can now create their own, School Leader Accounts, to share and help as a teaching tool. This new and important part of the Application was brought to the Class Dojo communities attention as many of the our schools leadership superiors were not able to access the Class Dojo to create their own accounts. Previously they were accessing the application to join as “teachers.” The company has and will continually expand and grown to maintain the school community platform in which we are able to learn and grow as Teachers, Students, Leaders and Parents.
