AIG Sued Over Ferry’s Settlement By the Atlanta Hawks Basketball And Insurance LLC

A charge against New Hampshire Insurance Company has just been made. The lawsuit was filed by the Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC for breach of contract in the settlement of Danny Ferry’s claims. He was the former general manager for the NBA franchise under the former ownership group (AHBE) that comprised of Bruce Levenson as the controlling partner. The lawsuit filed does not involve Forbes billionaire Tony Ressler’s group that currently owns the Hawks.

The civil action lawsuit filed in the Superior Court of Fulton County was against AIG. The action for insurance bad faith and breach of contract was made on September 13. In the Claim, AHBE notes that it was insured under a policy covering several losses related to employment practices. The practices include certain acts of wrongful termination along with workplace torts. Additionally, the practices are not limited to the two acts. According to the court documents, AIG was given notice by AHBE on April 2, 2015 that it believed the claims made by Ferry were covered.

Prior to the approval to sale the NBA franchise to Ressler’s group, Ferry and the Hawks ownership had reached an agreement two days earlier on June 22,2015. Their agreement brought to an end a relationship that began in 2012 following the signing of a six- year contract worth $ 18 million.

According to the current ownership spokesperson, they are aware of the lawsuit. The spokesperson noted that since the parties involved no longer have ties with the organization, there will be no further discussion on the matter. According to court documents, the claim’s amount is confidential. The charge states that AIG has refused to recognize that a claim was made as well as the policy has been triggered. Additionally, it states that AIG has failed to accept coverage or participate in the said claims’ defense.

Being Involved In Educational And Business Projects

Update February 10th, 2017:
Alexei Beltyukov has some ideas on how to get the Russian economy restarted. With the US sanctions, and world turmoil, things haven’t always been the brightest for Putin’s nation. But Alexei is putting his expert entrepreneurial insight to work for Russia’s business leaders.

Alexei Beltyukov is one of the key people involved in the development and launching of a new online learning platform called Solvy. This new learning program lets teachers assign different math problems to their students based on their needs and interests.

Instead of everybody receiving the same problem to work on, one group of students can receive a problem that focuses on a specific subject matter. Another group, meanwhile, can receive problems that focuses more on a different concept. This individualized learning approach helps students learn more effectively and strengthen weak areas.

Teachers also benefit. They can see where students struggle through Solvy. The software will alert an instructor if students perform poorly on math assignments online and if they need additional help.

Teachers can see the work done by students as they prove how they solved an equation. This lets them see where students struggle and they can adapt their lesson plans to address these issues in their students.

Solvy also saves teachers time. Selecting problems from a program and grading them online is easier than coming up with problems all on their own and manually grading each assignment.

You can expect to hear more about Solvy in the future. Right now it is free software available to all students, teachers and schools in the United States. Teachers can now use it to help teach algebra in the classroom.

Hedge Fund Giant George Soros Brings Major Democrats Donors Together To Checkmate Trump

In 2004, Donald Trump asked billionaire and Democratic donor, George Soros for help. Trump was putting a deal together to build a Trump Hotel in Chicago, and he needed funding. Trump asked Soros to invest in the $161 million hotel project, and Soros agreed because Trump was considered a Democrat back then. But things have changed over the last 12 years. George Soros donated more than $8 million to stop Republican Trump’s bid for the White House. George also said Trump and Ted Cruz were guilty of aiding Isis with their political rhetoric, according to an article published by politico.com. Trump wasn’t happy that his old investor was bankrolling his adversary, but there wasn’t much he could do about it. George Soros has been donating money to Democratic candidates for years. In 2004, he spent millions trying to stop George W. Bush.

When all the smoke cleared, George Soros spent more than $25 million to help elect Democratic candidates. Soros was especially concerned about district attorney races in six states. Reforming the criminal justice system on Politico is one of George’s passions, so he bankrolled Democrats with reformation ideas like his. The Soros investment in the Democratic Party didn’t help Clinton beat Trump. The Democratic Party has some deep rooted flaws it has to address. Soros and other major donors met in Washington, D.C. recently to address those flaws, and to develop a strategy to keep Trump from turning the country into a racist and bigoted nation. Mr. Soros and Democratic leaders at http://www.forbes.com/profile/george-soros/, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, union leaders, liberal groups, and Keith Ellison, the Congressional Progressive Caucus co-Chairman, and other Democratic donors attended the meeting.

The Washington meeting on NYBooks.com was the first organized gathering of Democrats since their defeat. Soros and other Democrats want to make sure that Trump’s first 100 days in office doesn’t turn into a national fiasco.

George Soros knows a lot about fiascos. He escaped Nazi-occupied Hungary when he was a teenager. His father was able to hide George’s Jewish heritage by getting phony documents made that used the name Soros instead of Schwartz on The Atlantic.com. George attended the London School of Economics and earned two degrees. He went to work for a London investment firm, but in the 1950s, he found a job on Wall Street. His investment skill has made him one of the wealthiest people alive. George is known for his humanitarian, philanthropic, and political efforts. He has donated more than $6 billion to various causes that promote Democratic principles over the last 50 years.
