Best Ski Resorts in California Connected

California is known to have some of the most iconic resorts in the United States. Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are considered to be the best in the state, and they are both found in north Tahoe. For many years, the resorts have had a special connection. They are close to each other, and when visitors are top of Squaw Valley, they can easily see the top of Alpine Meadows.

The two iconic resorts, however, are separated by distinct ski passes and two different cultures practiced in each resort. Squaw Valley is preferred by individuals who visit with their families. The resort offers the best sites for individuals who are still newbies in skydiving, although it has some areas where the experienced players can have fun. Squaw Valley attracts many tourists in the world, and at one time, the Olympics were held there.

Alpine Meadows is also a place full of activities. The resort has activities that will suit everyone, especially individuals who are looking for greater challenges in the skiing game. In 2011, things changed significantly in the two resorts when the owners of Squaw Valley, KSL Capital Partners decided to purchase Alpine Meadows. The acquisition idea changed the cultures of the two resorts, uniting them in to one ski resort. However, for the visitors to ski both mountains, they have to drive from one mountain to the other.

In the recent future, visitors will not have to drive from one parking lot to the other. Last Monday, the management at http://squawalpine.com of the two resorts announced that they will be constructing a gondola. The gondola will be the perfect way to connect Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. Once the project is completed, visitors will not have to drive from one mountain’s parking to the other.

The gondola is expected to operate in three parts: it will start at the base of Squaw Valley, going all the way to the ridge between both resorts. It will then go down to the bottom of Alpine Meadows. Many skiers have always wanted the two iconic resorts to be connected for many years. According to Andy Wirth, this will be a dream come true for many snowboarders and skiers who visit the area or live there.

The announcement to construct the gondola did not come as a surprise to the Lake Tahoe skiers. There have been rumors that the management was working on a plan to construct a life serving connection that will make things easier. The owner of the piece of land found between the two resorts, Troy Caldwell was one of the people who made the connection idea in to a reality.

Maybe I Can Make All My Income With Laidlaw & Company?

I never had designs on getting a job at Laidlaw & Company, but I thought that it would be a good idea to invest in a way that I was making a monthly income from investments. I am not someone who can just sign up online and do this myself. I had to find a place that could help me, and that is what Laidlaw & Company became when I found them the first time around. James Ahern and Matthew Eitner have trained all their brokers to help people like me, and now I get a check every month that acts as my salary.

 

I did not start out with the idea that I would be able to put all my money in at once and have an income. There was a lot of money that had to be put into the account first, and my broker told me how much I needed to contribute over the first year to get to a place where I could make money full time. I started following his plan, and then I was able to draw out checks after about 14 months. The plan worked because I kept my job, and I was able to resign when I had my accounts set up at Laidlaw & Company.

 

I think that a lot more people could do well as day traders if they were working with Laidlaw & Company. They are really nice people who understood my need to stop working, and they wanted to use their services to help. They set up something that made it easy for me to reach my goals, and I have told a lot of people to try them. I cannot imagine life without Laidlaw & Company, and I want other people to experience the joy of day trading the right way.

How To Bury Negative Search Results For Online Reputation Management

For many people, it is inevitable that there are going to be negative reviews. This is especially true for people that are honest about who they are. They will run into people that do not agree with them. As a result, they may say something negative about the person. In many cases, the negative review will appear on the front page of search results. As a result, the person’s reputation is damaged. This could result int he loss of business and support. To make things worse, this search result is going to stay on the front page for a while. So obviously, something must be done in order to get rid of this search result which is easier said than done. Fortunately, there is a way to achieve that for online reputation management.
The best way to get rid of the negative search result is to push it down off of the front page. One of the easiest ways to do that is to provide optimized content. Fortunately, there is no need to push it down too far. Search results on page two are rarely seen by people. Therefore, it does not take all that much to get rid of the bad press. It does take a lot to rank highly on search engines. This is where media outreach comes in. The best way for a business owner to do that is to get mentions and content about him form sites that are high in authority so that the content that is negative is pushed off of the front page.

One thing that is very helpful is adding optimized content on blogs and other authoritative sites. The good thing to do is to keep adding content over and over so that people will have a ton of positive content to read. Then the negative press will have very little effect on the business.

Susan McGalla Urges Women To Take Chances

Superstar corporate CEO Susan McGalla wants all women to know that they can achieve whatever they desire. All it takes is hard work and the right attitude. McGalla is in the sorority of female executives on BizJournals who managed to climb the corporate ladder all the way to the top. She has successfully run several corporations and left them in much better condition than she found them.

But as Susan McGalla will tell people, it hasn’t been all peaches and cream. “It’s been a very challenging ride sometimes.” Even in this day and age, women in the boardroom isn’t acceptable to some men. There is still a great deal of misogyny and backwards thinking. “Unfortunately, a few men who still think women should be barefoot and pregnant,” said Susan.

Susan McGalla learned her never say never attitude at a young age. She grew up in a family with two older brothers and a father, who was a football coach. It was her family’s philosophy – what didn’t kill you, simply made you stronger. Susan has taken that attitude everywhere she’s worked.

McGalla got her first taste of the corporate world right out of college at Joseph Horne Company. She worked in management and noticed there weren’t too many women moving up. That didn’t necessarily concern her, she just used it as a tool to work even harder. After 7 years, she moved on to American Eagle Outfitters. After proving herself to be a formidable asset, she was installed as CEO. Susan McGalla worked extremely hard to make the company the best it could be.

But she wasn’t done yet. After 10 years, she was named CEO of Wet Seal Inc. Although her tenure at the company was short, she learned a great deal. Susan soon realized it was time for her to spread her wings and run her own company. In 2009, Susan McGalla founded P3 Executive Consulting. She has a staff of professionals who help guide and shape other corporations.

Susan says she may delve back into the corporate world some day. But for now, she’s enjoys helping others cultivate their full potential. She urges all women to take that step. Regardless of how intimidating it may seem, it is a tremendous opportunity to help yourself and others around you grow.

Securus Exposes GTL in a Bid to Uphold Integrity in the Industry

As of June 7, 2016, Securus Technologies started releasing information to point out the shortcomings of Global Tel Link (GTL), a leading prison telecom company. Securus Technologies Inc is one of the biggest providers of communication for detainees, which primarily includes telephone and video visitation services. The company is also known for offering innovative technical solutions for government information management as well as parolee tracking. Securus takes its role in society seriously and believes that all players in the industry should serve customers with integrity.

GTL has been accused of shortchanging their customers when it comes to the quality of their services, and Securus believes that the public should be made aware of them. The proof that Securus has presented is highlighted in an investigation that was conducted by the Louisiana Public Commission into GTL’s conduct. From the Order, it is clear that the carrier was responsible for several violations, including overcharging call rates, illegal programming of call durations, and double billing calls fraudulently. GTL may have been guilty of these misdeeds 18 years ago, but it is something that keeps happening, according to Richard Smith, Securus Technologies CEO. As a customer, I expect that a communications company will take its responsibilities seriously in providing the services I pay for. Securus understands that, and it works on maintaining the highest level of veracity.

With over 1 million inmates to serve across the nation, Securus has to set the bar high to remain one of the industry’s largest contributors. The company received its BBB accreditation on March 14, 2016, meaning that it has met the necessary standards. This move by Securus is intended to prevent the violation of GTL towards its customers from marring the industry, which can lead to loss of faith from customers. Securus works in conjunction with local and county government and state departments of corrections across North America, making it responsible for a majority of the operations in the prison/jail system, which demands the highest levels of professionalism.

A Few Good Ideas for a Better Reputation

A person who gives his or her word and follows through to make sure all promises are kept is someone whose reputation is on track always going to be a good one. The same is true of those who are known for being consistently likeable. Everyone has their flaws and makes mistakes. Likeable people who go out of their way to help and support others, well, their transgressions are sometimes forgiven. Reputations remain positive ones as a result.

An engaging Forbes article delves into these and several other ways people can maintain a solid, proper reputation. Not everyone purposely chooses to do things that cause self-inflicted reputation harm. Purposeful or not, the harm ends up being done. Reading and rereading the Forbes article would definitely be a good start for persons hoping to keep a reputation positive and themselves in the good graces of others.

Extra steps such as being involved with the local community’s charitable causes are worth the investment. And it never hurts – ever – to act with integrity all the time. Forbes covers such points and more. The article, however, does not delve into the troubles one may run into when the search engine results go south.

Entrepreneurs do have to put effort into crafting a business’ online reputation. People who worry about their personal status are wise to do so. Miserable things published on the internet could cause a lot friction in someone’s personal life. Changing the appearances in the search engines has to become a priority in personal and professional lives. If not, then a reputation is going to suffer. A lot of misery in personal and professional circles could occur as a result.

Requesting a free assessment from Better Reputation might be the best road to travel down when hoping to fix a search engine calamity. Better Reputation helps improve what people see when they traverse the search engines. The company’s goal is its namesake. The work done by the firm is intended to improve the reputation of a client whose Google, Bing, or Yahoo! rankings are filled with bad content. Producing and distributing new online material should help with this outcome.

How Did Securus Help Us Connect?

I started my prison ministry when I did not have digital technology, and it was hard to get into all the jails to do visits. We have been keeping up with the times, and we want to make sure that we are using the best technology to get in touch with the people we help. We have spent a long time ministering to the people in the jail, and now we can check on them better because we have access to Securus. Securus is a great company that has helped us just download on app to talk to all of the inmates that we are working with.
We wanted to be sure that we were checking in with everyone face to face, and the only way to do that was to use Securus. They are providing a very secure connection, and I am happy to report to PR Newswire that I have had a lot of good conversations with the inmates over Securus. It is a video call that is very clear, and we can get connected to the jail at any time. We have all made a commitment to working with the inmates, and I think that this is the best way to help people who are in need. They need connection, and Securus helps us give them that.

I have it on my phone and tablet, and it is secure no matter where I call from. I get connected to a video call with the inmate I am calling, and sometimes it is the only thing that the inmate can look forward to. They will learn a lot about how to manage once they get out, and I am proud to say that a couple of my former inmates are now helping other people using the same technology to minister to the jails. My story was published on PR Newswire.

George Soros Invests In The Bearish Market As He Predicts Global Market Turmoil

George Soros has returned to bearish investments lured by opportunities of what he sees as coming economic troubles. Soros is worried about the global economic outlook, predicting an imminent significant market shift may be at hand. Soros Fund Management LLC, which currently manages about $30 billion of funds on behalf of Soros and his family, sold stocks to buy gold and shares for gold miners in anticipation for weaknesses in the various markets in the economy. It is custom for investors to view gold as a haven during economic turmoil.

Soros is the founder and chair of Open Society Foundation and Soros Fund Management. He gained fame in 1992 when risked $10 billion of his money to a single currency speculation when he gambled the British Pound. George Soros bet was that British Pound had to devalue its currency and no matter how much intervention they try would not avert the devaluation of the currency. He turned out to be right in his gamble and a single day; the trade generated a profit of $1 billion in profit. As a result, he is referred by many people as “the man who broke the Bank of England”.

Billionaire Investor George Soros Sees Economic Trouble Ahead

Soros is not new to controversy as he was cited as a key trader behind the Asian financial crisis in 1997 having large bet against the Thai baht. He has also criticized the China’s economic outlook saying that the strategies being implemented by the China’s authorities are focusing more on growth and failing to recognize the importance of debt control. Chinese authorities have been angered by Soros comment saying that Soros has been making such baseless prediction without any facts reflecting the real economic outlook of China.

One of the reasons Soros believes the world economy is headed in the wrong direction is the fear he has that China’s debt is going to cause havoc in the global economy. George Soros believes that if the China’s debt problem is imitating the U.S. debt surge in 2007 which later led to the world economic crisis. According to Soros, China will not avoid a hard landing especially at a time when the authorities are focusing on stimulating growth instead of controlling the level of debt.

To benefit from the imminent global economic slowdown, Soros has decided to sell stocks and buy up the gold investments. One of the world’s top investors is now investing in gold betting against equities. Again, He appears to benefit from his decisions since the S&P rose about 20% from 2013 to 2014. It is a strategy that Soros has made much of his wealth. Investors believe it is a good plan because buying puts a portfolio from tail risk especially if one can afford it.
