To support new business especially in real estate, construction, entertainment you need a back up of private investor funding. You also need to have fair to excellent credit score to obtain private investor funding. There are many known names in this business.

An individual who has done well financially and is ready to provide capital for a business is known as an Angel investor. Although Angels are thought of as individuals, the actual entity that provides the funding may be a trust, business, investment fund, etc.

Private investor funding basically lends you money against your private trust deeds, excellent business idea, and liquid rate of the land or business. As long as you have a plan and a proven track record, this is the main thing that these funding institutions look for.

This kind of funding comes with a high risk and therefore they demand a high return on investment. Individuals providing private investor funding have an exit strategy planned so that the original investment bring them more than five times the return in 3 to 5 years. The exit strategy could include IPOs or acquisition.

A private investor funding is done by reviewing the business plan. The funding institute or the individual then have an investment proposal that is both sensible and sufficiently attractive to investors. This funding can be raised by a group of investors as well.

Not just in the US but this type of funding can support new businesses in developing countries too. Venture capital and private investor funding work hand in hand for somebody who is setting up a new business. Companies use these funds to increase its R&D, sales and marketing efforts.

Private investors are now seeking to organize themselves, making a bigger entity than just working individually to receive small gains. Once they pool in their investments and form a network of private investors they can get bigger returns and this idea is very alluring.

The bottom line: even if you don’t have the money right now to invest, you can certainly find the money, whether you have to pool your money with others or obtain private investor funding from an institution. Don’t let a lack of funds hold you back; do your research, formulate a plan, and start investing and getting rich from the market.

Commonwealth Bank of Australia CEO apologies for financial planning scandal

Posted by on July 20, 2015

Thursday, July 3, 2014 

Ian Narev, the CEO of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, this morning “unreservedly” apologised to clients who lost money in a scandal involving the bank’s financial planning services arm.

Last week, a Senate enquiry found financial advisers from the Commonwealth Bank had made high-risk investments of clients’ money without the clients’ permission, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars lost. The Senate enquiry called for a Royal Commission into the bank, and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Mr Narev stated the bank’s performance in providing financial advice was “unacceptable”, and the bank was launching a scheme to compensate clients who lost money due to the planners’ actions.

In a statement Mr Narev said, “Poor advice provided by some of our advisers between 2003 and 2012 caused financial loss and distress and I am truly sorry for that. […] There have been changes in management, structure and culture. We have also invested in new systems, implemented new processes, enhanced adviser supervision and improved training.”

An investigation by Fairfax Media instigated the Senate inquiry into the Commonwealth Bank’s financial planning division and ASIC.

Whistleblower Jeff Morris, who reported the misconduct of the bank to ASIC six years ago, said in an article for The Sydney Morning Herald that neither the bank nor ASIC should be in control of the compensation program.

South African prosecutors charge ANC leader Jacob Zuma with corruption

Posted by on July 19, 2015

Saturday, December 29, 2007 

Corruption-related charges have been brought against Jacob Zuma, the newly-elected leader of the African National Congress (ANC), according to his lawyer. A trial is scheduled to begin on August 14, 2008.

The charges stem from an arms deal with a French company, which is alleged to have involved bribes and fraud. Zuma’s financial adviser at the time, Schabir Shaik, was convicted in 2005 of attempting to solicit a bribe of US$72,500 per year from the arms company on Zuma’s behalf and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Zuma was fired as deputy president in 2005 by South African President Thabo Mbeki due to the scandal.

Two-term ANC leader Mbeki recently lost an ANC leadership contest to Jacob Zuma, who garnered about 60 percent of delegate votes in his win.

Zuma had been charged with corruption in 2005, but the case was dismissed on procedural grounds. Michael Hulley, Zuma’s defence lawyer, indicated that they will strongly contest the new charges in court. Hulley also suggested that the South African government’s National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and its anti-organised crime division known as The Scorpions, have carried out a smear campaign against Zuma.

“These charges will be vigorously defended, in the context of the belief that the Scorpions (NPA) have acted wrongly and with improper motive calculated to discredit Mr. Zuma and ensure that he play no leadership role in the political future of our country,” said Michael Hulley in a statement.

Given that the ANC has been the governing party in South Africa since the end of apartheid in 1994, it is likely that Jacob Zuma could become the next president after general elections in 2009. Zuma has said, however, that he would resign if he was found guilty by the courts.

Project Management: The Contractor? Design Specification

Project Management: The Contractor’s Design Specification

by

John Reynolds

If, after serious consideration of the customer’s enquiry specification, a contractor decides to prepare a tender, the contractor must obviously develop technical and commercial proposals for carrying out the work. These proposals will also provide a basis for the contractor’s own provisional design specification. It is usually necessary to translate the requirements defined by the customer’s specification into a form compatible with the contractor’s own normal practice, quality standards, technical methods and capabilities. The design specification will provide this link.

It is well known that there are often several different design approaches (proposed solutions) by which the desired end results of a project can be achieved. There are therefore likely to be considerable technical differences between the proposals submitted by different companies competing for the same order. Since the contract has been awarded, however, the number of possible design solutions should have been reduced to one: namely, that put forward by the chosen contractor. But within that general solution or concept there might still exist a considerable range of different possibilities for the detailed design and make-up of the project.

Taking just a tiny element of a technical project as an example, suppose that an automated plant is being designed in which there is a requirement to position a lever from time to time by automatic remote control. Any one or combination of a number of drive mechanisms might be chosen to move the lever. Possibilities include hydraulic, mechanical, pneumatic, or electromagnetic devices. Each of these possibilities could be subdivided into a further series of techniques. If, for example, an electromagnetic system were chosen, this might be a solenoid, a stepping motor or a servomotor. There are still further possible variations within each of these methods. The device chosen might have to be flameproof of magnetically shielded, or special in some other respect.

Every time the lever has been moved to a new position, several methods can be imagined for measuring and checking the result, including electro-optical, electrical, electronic, or mechanical. Very probably the data obtained from this positional measurement would be used in some sort of control or feedback systems to correct errors. There would, in fact, exist a very large number of permutations of all the possible ways of providing drive, measurement, and positional control. The arrangement eventually chosen might depend not so much on the optimum solution (if such exists) as on the contractor’s usual design practice or simply on the personal preference of the engineer responsible.

Without detailed design specifications, there would be a danger that a project could be priced and sold against one set of designs solutions, but actually executed using a different, more costly, approach. This danger is very real. The danger is greater when the period between submitting a quotation and actually receiving the order exceeds a few weeks, allowing time for the original intentions to be forgotten. Thus, it is important to develop quality design specifications when the project is first proposed and be able to stick close to those specifications through the life cycle of the project.

Yahoo! News

Posted by on September 25, 2014

Yahoo News originated as a pure Internet-based news aggregator by Yahoo. It categorized news into “Top Stories”, “U.S. National”, “World”, “Business”, “Entertainment”, “Science”, “Health”, “Weather”, “Most Popular”, “News Photos”, “Op/Ed”, and “Local News,” a format it still largely uses today.

Articles in Yahoo News originally came from news services, such as Associated Press, Reuters, Agence France-Presse (AFP), Fox News, ABC News, NPR, USA Today, CNN.com, CBC News, Seven News, and BBC News.

In 2001, Yahoo News launched the first “most-emailed” page on the web.[1] The idea was created and implemented by Yahoo software engineer Tony Tam.[2]

Yahoo allowed comments for news articles until December 19, 2006, when commentary was disabled. Comments were re-enabled on March 2, 2010.[3] Comments were temporarily disabled between December 10, 2011, and December 15, 2011, due to glitches.[citation needed]

In June 2011, Yahoo News was rebuilt using an internal content management system called the Yahoo Publishing Platform.[4] The same platform now powers Yahoo News in the following regions and languages: Argentina,[5] Brazil,[6] Canada,[7] English,[8] Chile,[9] Colombia,[10] Mexico,[11] Peru,[12] Spanish (US),[13] English (US),[14]], Venezuela,[15] Hong Kong,[16] English (India),[17] Marathi,[18] Tamil,[19] Indonesia,[20] Malaysia,[21] Philippines,[22] Singapore,[23] Taiwan,[24] France,[25] Germany,[26] Italy,[27] Spain,[28] and the United Kingdom.[29]

Since 2011, Yahoo has expanded its focus to include original content, as part of its plans to become a major media organization.[30] Veteran journalists, including Walter Shapiro and Virginia Heffernan, were hired, while the website had a correspondent in the White House press corps for the first time in February 2012.[30][31] Alexa lists Yahoo News as one of the world’s top news sites.[32]

On August 29, 2012, Yahoo News fired Washington bureau chief David Chalian after he made a disparaging comment about Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his wife Ann Romney during the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida. With Hurricane Isaac entering Louisiana, Chalian suggested that “They’re not concerned at all. They’re happy to have a party with black people drowning”.[33]

According to an interview with Yahoo’s CEO Marissa Mayer Yahoo News will start displaying Twitter updates alongside news on both Desktop and Mobile in the United States in May 2013.[34]

In November 2013, Mayer announced Yahoo had hired former CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric as Global Anchor of Yahoo News.[35]

Yahoo! developed an application that collects the most-read news stories from different categories for iOS and Android. The app was one of the winners of 2014 Apple Design Awards.[36]

In April 2009, Yahoo News ranked second among global news sites in terms of users from the United States, after msnbc.com and ahead of CNN, according to Nielsen Ratings.[37]

Head of US Minerals Management Service resigns following BP oil spill response

Posted by on September 22, 2014

Thursday, May 27, 2010 

After reports that US President Barack Obama has fired the director of the Minerals Management Service, Elizabeth “Liz” Birnbaum, the Interior Department revealed that she instead resigned “on her own volition”. The resignation occurred amidst growing criticism of the federal government’s response to the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig explosion and the agency’s oversight over offshore drilling. 

Birnbaum, who became director in June 2009, was expected to testify before a subcommittee of the House of Representatives today with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar. She was not present when Salazar began to speak, however. Salazar said in a statement: “She is a good public servant. She resigned today on her own terms and on her own volition. I thank her for her service and wish her the very best.”

News agencies had reported that Birnbaum was forced out of office, and Obama was expected to officially announce the supposed firing later today in a news conference along with discussing an Interior Department report on the explosion. Birnbaum observed in her letter of resignation that Salazar “will be requiring three new leaders for the Office Natural Resources Revenue, the Bureau of Energy Management and the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement” as the entire Minerals Management Service is reorganized.

CIA contractor released from Pakistan

Posted by on September 21, 2014

Thursday, March 17, 2011 

Raymond Davis, a contractor for the CIA, has been released from Pakistan after a ruling by a Pakistani court. He was detained after killing two citizens carrying weapons on January 27, 2011. Davis was freed after agreements to pay “blood money” as compensation for the two lives were handled.

Blood money, defined as compensation paid by a murderer, is required under Islamic law. CIA official George Little said, “When issues arise, it’s our standing practice to work through them. That’s the sign of a healthy partnership—one that’s vital to both countries.” John Kerry, a Massachusetts senator, said, “This was a very important and necessary step for both of our countries to be able to maintain our relationship.”

After the ruling, a group of protestors demonstrated against the release in Lahore, Pakistan, and the United States government flew Davis out of the country. Asad Manzoor Butt, the attorney for the victims, said that the money was paid after hours of discussion with Americans.

According to a US official, the Justice Department will investigate the incident. Anonymous sources said that Pakistan’s government footed the bill, although the United States may be required to pay them back. He reportedly shot the two armed men as they attempted to steal from him in Lahore. Davis was accused of two accounts of murder and carrying unlawful weapons; the trial took place early Wednesday. The presence of international operatives in Pakistan has angered many citizens, resulting in protests around the country in the past weeks.

United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in Cairo, Egypt that the U.S. did not pay the compensation. After being asked by reporters who or what paid the families of the victims, she responded, “The families of the victims pardoned Mr. Davis and we’re grateful for their decision.”

Instant Traffic To A Website And Free Advertising : Traffup.Net

Instant Traffic To a Website and Free Advertising : Traffup.net

by

traffup.net

As someone who find new ways to increase website traffic effectively (by effectively I mean useful traffic), I keep on finding new programs and initiatives in the market which could increase my website s traffic quickly and effectively.

I recently used the current heartthrob Twiends . It is a very popular application on the web and is considered a very effective way of increasing your twitter followers. I loved the simplicity of that website and the ease with which Twiends increases your followers. They also have a section for websites and facebook where you can increase your website traffic and boost your facebook page likes respectively.

YouTube Preview Image

I was blown by Twiends twitter and facebook section, but the website area seems to be there just for the sake of it. No matter your website get a lot of hits, but these hits are not effective, as opening a website for just a few seconds count. The people don t open the website, they don t navigate it, they don t care about the category of the website which they are about to view. All they care about is the credits. And no one else but the twiends team is responsible for the thing. People buy credits and put their website so that people can view them and appreciate the work you have done by navigating the website further. But twiends doesn t make it possible.

This weakness is not present in Traffup. A website, completely dedicated to boost your website traffic. Its design is more sophisticated and solid than twiends and gives you a very simple user interface with speedy registration. There is no confusion with the website concentrating only on increasing your website traffic.

When you sign up to Traffup, you get 100 free points which you can use to advertise your website and showcase it. The person viewing your website gets some point for viewing it and thus can utilize those points to promote his website. But you have to wait for the website to load completely in order to get the points, which is a welcoming sign as the main purpose of bringing traffic is to make sure maximum people view the contents of your website and if people don t view the website completely, then the analytics figures are just numbers and cannot be put to any use. This is where Traffup scores. It lets you view the website. You can browse the websites as per your taste and preferences, as websites are placed in different categories.

One more thing about Traffup.net, that I want to point out, is the quality of websites added in traffup.net. Professional developers register on traffup in order to showcase their website. Getting cheap traffic is not a long term approach and I am happy to see that Traffup.net is not going for it.

So what you get at Traffup.net is the high quality traffic and that too in abundance. The website is just concentrating on the website section, which is both good and bad. But I am sure with the coming time, they would expand their working.
