George Soros and other wealthy liberals who committed or donated millions of dollars in order to ensure that Hillary Clinton gets elected are attending a closed door meeting in Washington. The gathering will take three days and its agenda is strategizing on how to take on the new president-elect Donald Trump. The conference taking place at Mandarin Oriental hotel is sponsored by the Democracy Alliance donor club on Forbes that is very influential. Notable figures expected to make appearances include sen. Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi (House Democratic leader) and Keith Ellison (Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chairman). This was according to some documents and agenda of the meeting acquired by POLITICO.
First Major gathering since the Polls
This would be the first ever major gathering of George Soros and other DA since Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in the November 8th U.S. elections. The liberals plan to put up a full fight against Trump from his first day in office. According to the agenda, there are some sessions that will discuss how the liberals will gear up for the 2017/2018 elections. There are other sessions dedicated to thwarting the new President-elect’s 100-day plan on opensocietyfoundations.org. The 100-day plan is viewed by many as an assault to be leveled against the achievements by president Obama and the progressive vision for a just and equitable nation.
Lessons from the 2016 Election
According to an operative in the conference, the liberals are keen not to take the wrong lessons from the past election. Their preferred candidate Hillary Clinton, will clinch the popular vote and that Trump got fewer votes than Mitt Romney, the last GOP presidential nominee at http://time.com/4581137/george-soros-donald-trump-hate-crime-minorities-election/. The operative stated that for them to win, they must find a candidate who will inspire voters to come out and vote in large numbers. Gara LaMarche, the DA president, told the donors at Mandarin that losing an election that they were poised to win and with so much at stake was not without some huge mistakes. These could be in form of assumptions, tactics and strategy. LaMarche had earlier sent emails to the donors informing them that the meeting would start with strategizing on how to take power back in the states starting from 2017 and 2018.
About the Democracy Alliance
The DA was launched in 2004 by George Soros, the late Peter Lewis and a number of Democratic mega-donors, after the elections. The donors had come together to support the then senator John Kerry challenge to President George W. Bush. The alliance funds several recommended groups annually that act as Democratic Party’s think tanks and advocacy groups to protect the politicians.

For the early portion of 2016, Oisin Hanrahan, CEO of Handy.com, dreaded coming into work on Tuesdays. It was on Tuesdays that the company had its weekly team leadership meetings, where Hanrahan would be subjected to a seemingly never ending array of slides demonstrating the errors in the business strategies he had vehemently supported, all while his fellow co-founder. During this time, the company was going through a major transitional phase, finding new ways to hire its cleaners. Hanrahan wished to roll out an online on boarding process in each of the company’s 28 markets. His co-founder, Umang Dua, resisted the plan for fear that qualified workers would not complete applications without the assistance of another person. They agreed to a limited test run in order to see how the idea would work. Starting in January 2015, the first markets tested were Miami and Washington, D.C. While they were still questioning whether or not they should implement the idea in all of the company’s markets, the company closed its $50 million Series C venture capital funding. This provided a bit of a financial safety net for the company, but also caused new stress ,as the tone of the meetings began shifting more toward whether or not businesses like Handy would be able to survive in the future. With few options, the company decided to go through with the online onboarding process, https://www.handy.com/services, which was predicted by Hanrahan to save the company millions every year. However, Dua turned out to be right, successful on boarding decreased by over forty percent and the company had to cancel thousands of bookings due to a lack of working pros. Eventually though, the company was able to pan out many of these problems. Today, Handy’s economics are looking up, but the future may hold more surprises.

There are new tech companies that are popping up every day in just about every industry you can think of. The amount of these startups makes it difficult for them to succeed. This is especially the case in industries where there is a lot of competition. However, the amount of competition has not seemed to bother an American by the name of Eric Pulier. He has been responsible for creating a wide range of startups. He seems to have no shortage of ideas for tech companies. His success has attracted the attention of some of the most powerful venture capitalists in the world.
One of the biggest problems that people encounter when they are trying to launch a startup is getting the money together that is needed to finance all of the things that the business requires. This was difficult for Eric in the early days of his career. He would need to make a presentation to potential investors in the hopes of getting them interested enough in his idea to give him some money to make his idea become a reality. He ran into a lot of people who did not share his vision. However, this changed with the successful launch of his signature cloud computing site called ServiceMesh. Eric found that there was no longer a shortage of venture capitalists who wanted to work with him.
Eric graduated from Harvard in 1987 with a bachelor’s degree in English literature. However, he quickly realized that life as an English literature professor would not be ideal for him. Eric wanted to be involved in technology because he liked the way it was always advancing and getting better. He knew that there would always be a need for people who were able to design innovations in the tech world. Therefore, he has devoted his life to coming up with tech startups that provide services that there is a large demand for. This formula has allowed Pulier to achieve amazing things throughout the course of his remarkable career. He has been interviewed by some of the most respected technology publications in the world.

The Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC (AHBE) recently filed a lawsuit against New Hampshire insurance company. In the lawsuit, the former Atlanta Hawks ownership group claimed that the insurance company breached a contract established by them and Danny Ferry who is the insurance company’s former general manager. The lawsuit excludes Tony Ressler, the current principal owner of Atlanta Hawks.
AHBE filed the lawsuit in Fulton County Superior Court on September 13, 2016. The former ownership group also claimed that New Hampshire insurance company provided them with an insurance policy that covered employment losses, workplace torts, and wrongful termination. Ferry assured AHBE one year ago that his insurance company covered the employment losses.
The lawsuit’s court documents stated that AHBE’s claim is confidential. The documents also stated that AHBE’s claims are valid because of the insurance company’s policy on confidential limits of liability. The ESPN report pointed out that New Hampshire insurance company refused to agree that they breached their policy. AHBE accused the insurance company of refusing to take part in the defense of the claims when Ferry’s counsel held discussions with the former ownership group of Atlanta Hawks.

Unusually heavy rainfall in October was the cause of the E Coli and Coliform bacteria contamination in a statement released by Liesl Kenney, PR director of Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows. Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows released the statement on November 30th. During routine testing they detected the contamination and contacted the authorities immediately.
The water system was upgraded earlier in the summer at the High Camp and Gold Coast. These new water systems were flooded by over 9.5” of rain in a seventy-two-hour period and led to the water contamination. However, the contaminated water was never available to the public. Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows took quick action, working with the Squaw Valley Public Service District, Placer County Environmental Health, and consulted with water safety experts. Together they worked on a plan to address the issue and are taking the steps necessary to solve the problem.
Since November 8, the water has been treated and so far, three out of the four wells are showing no traces of E. Coli and only low levels of Coliform bacteria. With continued treatment, before too long at least three of the four wells should be usable. Entering the winter season, freezing conditions should help to kill the bacteria.

Testing continues on a daily basis. Once the tests come back negative, normal operation will go back to normal. The current treatment in place involves flushing and rinsing the system with chlorine. In addition, sodium hydrochloride is also being added to the water.
Guest safety continues to be a top priority at the resort. The Squaw Valley Resort continues to stay open throughout the ordeal. The resort worked out a plan with Placer County Environmental Health that allows skiers to still use the facilities and keeps them safe. While the restaurants at Gold Coast and High Camp are closed, prepackaged food is still available. So far, the plan has been working, and no guests or employees have reported any health issues from the water supply.
The resort won’t return to regular water usage at High Camp or Gold Coast until the authorities declare that the water is safe. In the meantime, free bottled water is being provided for all guests. Guests continue to have full and normal access to the facilities at both locations. Thanks to the assistance from Placer County and the diligence of the resort, full operation is in the near future.The resort will continue to update the guests and will let them know when the issue is fully resolved.
