Education, Faith, And The Arts Rise To The Top Of The Philanthropic Work Of Dick DeVos

A large number of us know the name Dick DeVos because of the many years he spent as the leader of the AmWay Group and because of the short, but successful period of time the Grand Rapids, Michigan resident spent as the President and CEO of the NBA’s Orlando Magic franchise. However, I have been impressed over recent years by the work of Dick himself and the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation in providing funding and support for various philanthropic causes and charitable groups; for myself, I was most impressed by the revelation that Dick and Betsy DeVos have provided charitable donations reaching over $139 million in the course of their lifetimes.

 

Just how does Dick DeVos divide his charitable giving over the course of a year; let’s begin with education, an area I feel I am not alone in already understanding Dick and Betsy DeVos have played a key role for a number of decades. In 2013 alone, Dick DeVos and his foundation provided over $3 million in support for education reform programs, and continued to back a number of groups supporting education reform across the nation. Education reform has always been a major part of the philanthropy of Dick and Betsy DeVos, but I was happy to read Dick has now looked to include his own children in the philanthropy the DeVos family continues to undertake that has led to a more diverse range of programs being backed by the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. One area I believe is close to the heart of Dick DeVos is his financial backing of the Willow Creek faith based religious charity the Northwood University graduate believes can play a key role in returning the U.S. to traditional values and promoting various leadership qualities among the people of the nation.

 

There are many aspects of the philanthropic work of Dick DeVos to admire, and I believe their are too many to list here, but an area of financial support I believe may be smaller than other contributions but remains just as important to the family as a whole. The Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital has been a major success in providing care for those children who are suffering with certain forms of cancer attending the hospital; Dick himself has provided a major level of financial support for the hospital in making sure top physicians and researchers are always employed on a full time basis to raise the success rate in battling some forms of brain cancers in children.

 

The Success of Sujit Choudhry

Comparative law is the study of the different forms of law that there are in the world and the analysis on their function as well as how they work in different societies across the world. Despite the fact that many legal systems come in the form of government policies, the study of comparative law also studies many religious laws as well as many cultural laws that are recognized in different countries around the world. Comparative law is often fascinated by early legal systems in the ancient times where laws created order despite the fact that the laws were often unconventional laws. The importance of this area of study has grown exponentially over the years especially as there have been an increase in initiatives to promote globalization all over the world. This phenomena has been popular for some time and gained recognition during the 18th century as more and more individuals from different countries from around the world were interacting with one another.

This form of studying legal systems has branched off into several disciplines that are currently growing in popularity. Of the many academics around the world that have continued this study, one individual stands out not only for his achievements in the field of research, but also due to his inspirational background as well as the way that he is able to inspire both peers and students to follow his path in research. This individual is Sujit Choudhry who is many things including an academic as well as an individual who is interested in the growth of globalization.

Sujit Choudhry is a renowned individual with several degree in law as well as the foremost expert in several disciplines that continue to grow in present day thanks to his passion and to his hard work.

Great Perks For Luxury Real Estate Deals

Investors who think the real estate industry is just a staid type of business have had a bit of a wakeup call of late. The reality is that as the luxury real estate market slows down (due in part to instability overseas that is tightening up access to funds, as well as stricter regulations on all cash, completely anonymous purchases) realtors are going to great lengths to lure in big investors.

Some crazy perks are finding their way into big real estate deals, and some truly defy any sense of logic. Some of the most wildly amazing perks we’ve seen for the purchase of luxury properties include a Roll-Royce Phantom (part of the deal for the Atelier condos in Manhattan), a yacht, and even a private restaurant inside a building. A luxury building in Miami Beach is offering chauffeur service via Tesla, and another home in Miami has its own art gallery. Other amazing perks to go with purchase of a luxury property include designer furniture, a water slide that goes directly from the upper story of the residence and into the pool, and a wall of floor-to-ceiling candy dispensers, all stocked with $200,000 worth of candy. Now that’s living!

In the midst of a crazy time in the luxury real estate market, what’s certain is that a firm comprised of top-level real estate professionals is the key to success. The professionals that manage TOWN Residential’s NYC properties are now very much in demand, as this firm has made a name for itself since its launch in 2008 due to the quality of its realtors and for their knowledge of the intricate New York luxury market.

Is it time to invest in a property that has everything you’ve been looking for? If it’s time, call TOWN.

Devco hotel project struggling

The New Brunswick Development Corp. (Devco) project, The Heldrich, a hotel and conference center in New Brunswick, NJ, continues to falter. In April, the Middlesex County Improvement Authority (MCIA), missed its scheduled $1 million principal and interest payment to the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority for a $20 million revitalization loan made in 2005. The loan partially financed The Heldrich’s renovation, part of a $107 million package.

MCIA fell behind in payment five years ago. It’s now behind in repayment by nearly $7 million, according to an April news article in The Press of Atlantic City.

“CRDA will be paid, but it’s just going to take a couple more years,” said attorney Chris Paladino who heads Devco and its Atlantic City sister organization.

The 235-room hotel, open since 2007, has failed to draw the expected number of guests with a 63.5 percent occupancy rate in 2015. Devco financed $776,000 for essential capital expenses for the hotel including replacement of carpet and mattresses, said Paladino.

“We continue to be engaged in the project, and we want to make it healthy,” he said.

Founded in the mid-1970s, the private non-profit DEVCO, marshals urban real estate developments to further revitalization of New Brunswick and foster the city’s economic growth. The non-profit organized $1.6 billion in investment for the city, so far.

Paladino said Devco continues to support the Heldrich project for its numerous positive impacts like the 235 unionized workers it employs, its annual $1.2 million in real estate taxes and its 100,000 visitors in 2015.

“We took a really crappy block and turned it into something special,” Paladino said. “Will I be happier with the project once it pays all its debt? Yes.”

 

Lime Crime’s New Website Upgrade

During the years of 2015 and 2016, the hair coloring game changed tremendously. Pastel and multicolored neon hair became insanely on trend. Some of the people who have jumped on the pastel and neon hair train have began to notice that their makeup does not look as great as it used to. Because of this struggle that many men and women are facing, a very famous makeup brand called Lime Crime has worked up a solution. On the Lime Crime website, there is a new widget addition that allows for customers to select products that go along with their hair color perfectly.

The widget focuses mainly on two products, which are lipsticks and eye shadows, since the lip and eye area have such a great effect on one’s overall facial appearance. Whenever one goes to the Lime Crime website and selects the new website addition to figure out what makeup colors will look good with their complexion and hair color, they will be required to do two things. First of all, the person will obviously have to select their hair color or the closest thing they can find to it since there are so many different hue options whenever it comes to the neon and pastel hair trend. After the hair color and hue has been selected, next the potential customer will select their skin tone, which is the final step. Whenever these two simple steps are completed, the person will click the submit button, which will trigger the generator to start searching for lipstick and eye shadow colors that will compliment each of the components.

Whenever asked about this new website feature in a recent press conference, Lime Crime said that they were very excited to finally be able to offer something to their clients that will help them select colors that are perfect for them. There are so many lip and eye options out on the market today, but many of them are not produced with this new pastel and neon hair trend in mind. That is why Lime Crime is extremely satisfied in knowing that their unicorn and mermaid hair colored customers will be taken care of and introduced to colors to keep their style alive.  Doe runs their official blog which has up to date information about what Lime Crime is doing next.

Eric Puller–the Man that Keeps Giving

The name Eric Pulier will not ring a bell for most people. He’s one of those uunspoken heroes–after all, he isn’t a celebrity like Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise. Yet, this is a man who achieved great things before he even hit his prime. At the young age of 48, Eric Pulier has founded many organizations, authored columns, and helped those who really needed it.

Eric Pulier is the founder of People Doing Things–also known as PDT. This innovative company, which got its start after Pulier moved to Los Angeles, California from his home in Teaneck, New Jersey in 1991, uses technology addressed such issues as education and healthcare. Just three years later, he also created an interactive agency called Digital Evolution, which did so well that in 1998, it successfully merged with US Interactive LLC. He also led the revolution of Starbright World, which was a social network specifically designed for chronically ill children.

And that was just the start. Since the 1990’s, Puller has been the founder (or sometimes co-founder) of thriving businesses such as: Media Platform, TM Forum (formerly known as Enterprise Cloud Leadership Council), Akana, ServiceMesh, and Desktone. All of these utilized technology in some form or fashion, whether it be things such as media presentations (MediaPlatform) or virtual desktops (Desktone).

His philanthropy wasn’t left behind in the 90’s, either. Since then, Pulier has also invested in charities such as Trident Capital, Monitor Ventures, e-companies, as well as another firm that has yet to make its debut. He is also an active member of the board of the Painted Turtle–a summer camp designated for children with chronic illnesses, as well as the board for the XPRIZE Foundation.
