Bruce Levenson’s Involvement in the Lawsuit against New Hampshire Insurance Company

The New Hampshire Insurance Company is facing a lawsuit which was filed against it by the Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC (AHBE). According to the Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC, the insurance company has failed to honor a contract. This lawsuit, however, involved the previous ownership of AHBE. According to Time Magazine, Bruce Levenson is among those who are involved because he was under the previous management. The current group is under the leadership of Tony Ressler.

According to AHBE, the insurance cover from the New Hampshire Insurance Company covered the employees against some practices. These include wrongful termination among several others. The previous management gave notice to the insurance company, but nothing has been done about it.

The change in the management at AHBE resulted from a buyout. The owners had been partners since 2012 before they acquired the franchise. The current spokesperson of AHBE said that since the lawsuit did not involve the current management, they were not in a position to speak about it.

The previous management said that the lawsuit against the New Hampshire Insurance Company was their last option. The insurance company failed to act on the claims and did not even acknowledge that the claims were made. The insurance company ought to have covered the loss incurred by Ferry and his team. If they win, the insurance company will not only pay the claims but also all the fees incurred during the lawsuit.

Bruce Levenson had been among the owners of AHBE since 1997. During the sale of the AHBE Levenson and his group is said to have made a lot of profit, read: http://www.forbes.com/sites/mikeozanian/2015/04/23/bankers-for-levenson-oversold-atlanta-hawks-by-27/.

Fashion-Tech: The Future

According to Christopher Burch, every decade has its own technological symbols or accessories. The 70s saw the birth of the double cassette player, the 80s brought the carry-on boom box, the 90s saw the intimate personal Walkman, and the new century brought the iPod. When technology becomes fashionable, it becomes trendy to wear that technology as an accessory. But there are designers on both sides of the aisle who are actively changing the world.

Recent years have seen some interesting marriages between technology and fashion. Anouk Wipprecht, the Dutch avant-garde designer, has created dresses to combine fashion and engineering. Her DareDroid dresses make drinks, and her Pseudomorph dresses are painting canvases that change with time. Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin created an inflatable bike helmet that looks like a scarf and detonates on impact to become an air helmet. It is a wearable technology that can save lives. Kevin Cannon and Ashwin Rajan has created the Frontline Gloves for firefighters that allow wireless hand gesture communications in hazardous low visibility and high noise situations. Recycling is another trend in fashion technology. SegraSegra used recycled bicycle tubes to make stylish clothing. Emma Whiteside made a gown out of recycled radiator copper. Tech-wearables can be good for the environment. Soledad Martin’s kinetic energy converting shoes can charge accessories like watches and cell phones.

Just like technology experts have stepped up to create wearable fashion, fashion designers have stepped up to make tech-wearables more trendy. Google Glass came with the stigma of wearing glasses. American fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg tried to help out with the situation. Her models wore them on the catwalk like any fashion accessory. A gesture like this can help the latest wearable technology gain wider acceptance. With more cooperation between the world of technology and fashion, functional tech-wearables can create an aesthetically-pleasing safer world in the future.

Brokers Go Ape over Town Residential Real Estate High End Sales

Entrails do not hamper the fast paced growth in the meatpacking district. Town Residential has become so impressed with the attraction to this area blossoming with new residential neighborhoods. It could be the banks of the Hudson or the price ranges but the brokerages are doing back flips with how excited buyers are and how many keep closing deals with them.

 

Andrew Heiberger describes the tendency of brokers to show potential buyers around in the “High Line.” Since 2010 the tendency has spurred on more of the same with purchases of spaces that are in the common vicinity of story-high park. Confidence in the growing trend resulted in the setting up of a brokerage office up on the second floor of a 7,100 square-foot office space on West 14th street. The lease will end in fifteen years so this Town Residential brokerage really has bought in to this area down by the Hudson meatpacker’s old jaunts. No one will boast as much about the airy sixteen foot high ceilings where thoughts of hanging puffy pillows for a cloud effect might cross the minds of visiting buyers. They are also made very comfortable in agent client meetings on the private office under the sky up on the roof deck. This deck is situated atop a three story office structure where surveying the landscape is a natural thing to do.

 

Andrew is making the brand he calls ‘Town,’ and easy feeling phrase when combined in its Town Residential brand name while being associated with the high sticker price tags on the homes that are being sold from this brokerage in the district. Agents, brokers and clients will fit right in as they convene to find the most attractive deal in housing. “This is the kind of space that really differentiates us from other firms,” says Heiberger. The outdoor space for meetings is the pride of this agency that feels its atmosphere sets it apart by far from other competitors in the greater New York West Village area. With that in mind, the plans into the future involve bringing in the West Village sales offices that exist as Thomas & Ingram brokerage. Teh merger is also taking place in offices from Horatio Street as Andrew is closing that office and reopening it under the same roof of the new lofty Town Residential at 446 W. 14th Street.

 

The vision at Town Residential according to Andrew Heiberger is one that has the entire West Side neighborhood banded together with the brokerage seated slap in the middle like an ant hill where the activity is determined, prosperous and refreshing. Agents are very up on the area surrounding them, known as the Hudson Yards all the way to TriBeCa.
