The creator and CEO of Equities First Holdings is Al Christy, Jr. and he wanted to find a way to fill the dilemma that consumers are currently stuck. He is allowing consumers a way to secure loans that are secured by stocks as a different way of assisting individuals to obtain money for their businesses. Stock-based loans allow for a higher loan-to-value ratio than other loans, but they have a fixed interest rate. This allows borrowers to feel confident when accepting these loans. He has clarified the difference between traditional loans and stock-based loans. A person can’t get a traditional loan before first being pre-qualified. After being approved, he or she can only use the funds for the specific reason. Also, conventional loans have variable rates, and the loan-to-value ratio can only be expected to be between ten and fifty percent.
If there is a margin call, the borrower’s collateral is in danger of being dissolved.
Incoming Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is keen on a young, upstart wildcatter based in Houston — that would be Talos Energy founded in 2012 by CEO Timothy Duncan. Talos is now operating in Mexican waters in cooperation with Pemex and two other international partners.
Talos Energy was among the first foreign operators allowed into Mexican sovereign territory in some 80 years. Mexico nationalized its oil industry in 1938, but a long-standing slump in production and income from oil-based resources has prompted a new approach.
Talos Energy, working with Britain’s Premier Oil and Sierra Oil & Gas, a Latin American entity, dropped a shallow-water well off Mexico’s Tabasco coast in 2017. The well was dubbed the ZAMA-1. It appears to have been a significant find. Estimates are that ZAMA may harbor up to two billion barrels of crude oil equivalent. Talos Energy will enjoy a 30% share in the project. It may deliver as much as 100,000 to 150,000 barrels per day by 2023.
Talos CEO Tim Duncan recently met with a group that included President-Elect Obrador as a deeper and more involved partnership develops between the American company and the Mexican state-owned Pemex. Obrador expressed great enthusiasm in working with Talos — a feeling which is mutual. Duncan says he shares the “urgency” Mexican officials hold over kick-starting that country’s underperforming energy exploration industry.
Pemex plans to drop another well in the block adjacent to ZAMA-1 with solid expectations that more oil will be found. An appraisal plan for the cooperative project between Pemex and Talos was approved by Mexican authorities in September.
Brining the ZAMA and adjacent wells online as quickly as possible carries a certain sense of urgency since industry analysts have widely predicted a looming oil shortage in perhaps five to seven years — largely due to expected sanctions on Iran. Pumping 150,000 barrels a day from ZAMA and other shallow-water Gulf strikes would be timely and welcome.
Talos Energy is aggressively pursuing numerous other sites across Gulf of Mexico waters, boldly going where many other oil exploration firms today are unwilling to go.
There’s nothing more exciting than growing your business. In addition to the excitement that accompanies this growth, there is also the crippling fear that it might fail. Businesses fail all the time. This is especially true in the technology business where products are constantly changing. Alex Hern has made it his life’s work to keep up with the frequent changes that plague the technological community of the business world. This has earned him a lot of success in that arena and he recently gave an interview to Ideamensch that elaborated on why he believes he has been so successful in the field.
His interview with Ideamensch covered how important he believed that some degree of focus was to the process. Alex Hern believes that focus is indicative of a good businessman. He takes 4 to 5 hours a day to focus on one of his projects at a time. This allows him to approach the problems of that project with a clear head. He uses that clarity to make informed decisions about the future for these projects. It has been a habit that has worked out well for him for some time now. In fact, this habit has been so successful that Alex Hern recently announced the launch of his new project Tsunami XR.
Tsunami XR is important because it will essentially be on the forefront of writing new programming and software applications centered around the future of computation. Computation is making a shift toward the GPU’s in the future. More companies are looking at the power of GPU usage. While it does take them longer to retrieve a memory, they are able to retrieve larger amounts of it. Additionally, the GPU’s are able to be stacked in larger amounts. This means that they can queue up the information and provide a constant stream of data. The unloading process ensures that there will always be a line of data. CPUs are simply not capable of this process and are not able to be stacked in such a number. Many CPUs can only be stacked in pairs of two. Tsunami XR is it going to be part of a massive change in the future of computer processing.
One thing about being successful in business is that there is a risk factor that comes with it. As a matter of fact, the largest part of being successful is being known. People have to know about a certain company before they can do business with it. Therefore, being successful means that one has to put herself out there. This is exactly what Whitney Wolfe has done. However, she has done more than just let people know that she exists, she has let people know the cause she is fighting for and what how she intends to fight for what she believes in.
Given that Whitney Wolfe has chosen a noble cause and has been very wise and assertive with how she intends to fight, there was bound to be some all kinds of attention. Among the attention she has gotten has come from a new-Nazi website. This has caused Whitney Wolfe to hire some bodyguards and travel with them. It has gotten to the point where the FBI has intervened. One of the reasons that Whitney and her brand was targeted was that she was a feminist. Another reason is that she has become one of the more famous feminists. This has caused more people to pay attention to her. Fortunately, the neo-Nazi website has been taken down. Billion-Dollar Bumble: How Whitney Wolfe Herd Built America’s Fastest-Growing Dating App
This is just one example of how success can bring forth vulnerability, especially for people that fight for a cause. Even beside fighting for a cause, Whitney Wolfe has brought forth something that is of great benefit for both men and women. The Bumble app tries a new configuration that can make things a lot more effective for both men and women. This configuration makes it so that women have to initiate with men. This makes it easier with some men as well.
Joel Friant knows how to follow the market. Since 1995 the serial entrepreneur has been at the forefront of many major changes. Friant, an avid proponent of free markets, is a sparkling example of what entrepreneurship can be. Numerous times he has joined a fledgling market, learned the field, and then set up his own business within it. Every time that business has been successful. Most people believe his career began with his flagship product, the Habanero Shaker, but the truth is it started with a fast food restaurant.
In 1995 Friant created the original fast food Thai concept, earning him the moniker the “Thai Guy”. The business would ultimately lead him to develop his most known product, cementing fast food Thai as an eternal footnote. But the truth is, the restaurant is the reason the Habanero Shaker exists. Being exposed to Habanero peppers through the restaurant Friant began developing an idea to transport the taste anywhere. Most shakers at the time used very little actual pepper, something Friant took exception to. So, after traveling around to find the best versions of the pepper, Friant created the Habanero Shaker. This would be his second time cashing in on a new market.
Many people throughout the 90’s started focusing on healthier eating. Getting products that with less additives and more natural ingredients. Friant’s Habanero Shaker contained nothing but natural ingredients, it was 100% Habanero flakes. It did not take long for the shaker to become a successful product. Friant was named a “foodpreneur”, an example many companies began to follow. Although he would eventually move on to other markets, the Habanero Shaker would be the one product he would be remembered for.
The Shaker left the market for many years. During this sabbatical Friant excelled in many other markets. He founded a mortgage lending firm, created revolutionary business concepts, and even started giving back with professional development seminars. Finally, he would follow trends into the business of online sales. It is here that Friant, upon learning the ropes from eBay and Amazon, would bring the Habanero Shaker back.
Formally known as the Wilhelmina Austin, The Brown Modeling Agency came to be in 2015 as a result of the merger with Heymen Talent-South. It combines all the best aspects two of the largest talent agencies in the region. This union of agencies provides the greater-Austin area with a powerhouse full service modeling agency.
The Brown Agency is the clear leader for modeling placement in the greater Austin, Texas area. The agency has a wide diversity of offerings. They assist in taking models from still print to film and beyond. Brown represents models and actors with a wide breadth of talent pursuits including; print ads, commercials, film, television, industrial style videos, catalogue stills, audio-voice over, trade show and convention modeling and more. They also have an impressive do sea of brands which clients have an exposure to and the potential of work with. These brands include well-known brands such as L-Oreal, Louis Vuitton, Toyota, Dell as well as many other popular and familiar companies.
In a report by Market Wired, under the direction of President Justin Brown, the agency promotes that modeling is no longer exclusively reserved for the tall and thin “beautiful people” – but welcomes the individual who wouldn’t normally give modeling a second thought. There are of course still those high standards for runway and super models, but there is certainly modeling needs where an ordinary look is desired. Take a moment to look at the less thought of areas of modeling.
There is obviously a large need for “ordinary” people in the vast array of marketing general products. Advertisers seek to reach the average consumer and that target audience clearly doesn’t relate to the 5’8″ to 5’11” super runway model. Whether the marketing is in magazines, newspaper ads or billboards on the highway, the target audience is someone more like you – an average Joe or Jane. It’s always essential to have a friendly smile and approachable appearance, but being the height and size of a super model is what they aren’t looking for in this modeling assignment.
Large and Plus Size Models
Use of larger models is on the rise. The world of fashion now recognizes and embraces the fact that the average women are actually a size 12 (not the teeny size 3-5 most women dream of being). The Brown Modeling Agency accepts large size models from US size 10-16, but for runway models – you must be at least 5’8″ tall.
Extras on Television or Commercials:
Marketing steers toward the back drop of everyday people as their extras in TV and commercials. There are so many instances where a common look is more marketable. No harm in contacting The Brown Modeling Agency to see where you might fit.
A company that has facilities to manage needs to find someone like IAP Worldwide to manage each building. There is a lot that can be done with a building when it is set up the right way, but every building needs to be given a chance to run the best way possible with help from someone who does this every day. IAP Worldwide does these things often, and they want to be sure that client has a building that actually operates in a way that works for them. There is no need to waste time, and there are a lot of resources that can be saved in this way.
Someone who hires IAP Worldwide should make sure that they are going to have a way of getting the building in shape. They cannot always be around, but they can trust IAP Worldwide to do the work for them. IAP Worldwide is going to send in people to run the building, and they are going to provide the assistance that is most needed for these situations. That means that everyone who is going to work the building is hired just to do this work. The people in the building care for it like it is their own, and the owner does not have to worry about it.
There are many other small things that can be handled IAP Worldwide, and that frees up the owner to do what normally needs to be done just to manage their business. Someone who is trying to make changes to the way they manage their business can get IAP Worldwide to help, and then they will not have to do a thing. IAP Worldwide can also handle the technical services for these systems, and they will make it much simpler for people who are not sure what to do.
The idea is to make sure that all owners of property are able to protect their buildings and care for them. Someone who is hiring IAP Worldwide for help will feel much better because they do not need extra help. IAP Worldwide can actually do everything that needs to be done.
