Allegations between Atlanta Hawks, Danny Ferry


The Atlanta Hawks have filed a lawsuit against general manager Danny Ferry. The Hawks cited “wrongful termination” and “workplace torts” as breaches of contract on September 13, 2016. When asked about the civil action, a Hawks representative stated that the complaint and principal parties are under control. The issue began with a six-year, $18 million contract with ambiguities that sparked the dispute between both parties. In 2015, court documents declared that his actions were indeed in bad faith and that subsequent proceedings were to occur. The exact amount of the claim is confidential, and furthermore, the extent of liability is unknown as well. At last report, the Hawks plan to use judicial rights to recover the lost finances and settle all obligations. They do not want to unnecessarily commit to this allegation.

One major voice in the process has been Bruce Levenson, former owner of the corporation. Levenson has served on the NBA Board of Governors since 2004, operated the basketball team, and founded the media company TechTarget. Although Levenson is no longer directly involved with the athletic aspect of the team, he is still an active philanthropist (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/undergrads-and-graduate-students-mastering-philanthropy-300038081.html) with organizations such as the I Have a Dream Foundation. Under Levenson’s guidance, the Hawks are predicted to close the deal professionally and keep both their and Ferry’s reputations intact.

There’s A New Social Scene In New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago And San Francisco


The old way of hanging out just got more exciting, thanks to 24-year-old Billy McFarland. If you haven’t heard the name Billy McFarland before that’s okay. You will, soon. McFarland is tuned into the world of Millennials, and he is making a big impact on that generation. Millennials aren’t the only people that are impressed by McFarland.

The big corporations that are spending millions of dollars trying to figure out how to capture consumers in the Millennial market are impressed with Billy McFarland too. The reason Billy is all over the news lately is simple. He found a way to tap into the Millennial market in cities like New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

In order to understand how Billy does what he does, you must start at the beginning of McFarland’s business career. McFarland’s business career started at the age of thirteen in Short Hills, New Jersey. His parents are real estate developers, so they were very supportive of Billy’s business efforts. His first business was computer-based.

According to Fortune, Billy McFarland decided to study computer engineering at Bucknell University, but he didn’t connect with the school curriculum, so he dropped out and started his second business. He called that enterprise, Spling. Spling is an online ad platform that uses pictures instead of words to market products and companies. It didn’t take long for the concept to become successful. At 20-years-old, Billy was the talk of the online business world.

The Spling concept opened a lot of doors for McFarland. At dinner one night, with friends, the conversation turned to credit cards and how they are used. Most of the people around the table wanted a card that did more than offer credit, and that conversation turned a light on in Billy’s mind. A few weeks later, Billy raised $3 million in venture capital and started Magnises.

The name Magnises doesn’t mean anything, and Billy liked that. He wanted to give the word its own meaning. Magnises is a member only social club that offers perks to the Millenials that spend $250 a year for a black metal American Express looking membership card. More than 12,000 members in Chicago, New York, San Franciso and Washington, D.C. are carrying that card, and more people are signing up every day.

How to Improve Your College Football Betting Skills


Millions of Americans are huge fans of college football. This sporting spectacle has attracted a strong following in the U.S. In fact, most of the games get broadcasted on various TV channels. There is a strong case to suggest that a significant fraction of the people attending and following this matches are more into the gambling aspect that the actual sport itself. Whether you are gambling for the sake of having fun or as a professional, this article is a brilliant read.

Here are some of the proven and tested betting strategies utilized by the genuine professionals, according to the information posted on www.covers.com:-

Stake Everything

Do a thorough research and identify a sure win team. Place everything you have on that particular team. The best thing about this strategy is that when you are right, you earn a lot.

Go Martingale

The martingale bet works this way. Let’s say you bet $100 on team A winning. Before this bet even materializes, you go ahead and stake an extra $200 on team B winning. Suppose team A loses, and team B wins, you can recoup all losses and still walk away with some profits.

Spread Betting

According to Wikipedia, spread betting aims to create an active market for both sides of a binary wager. A spread bet is placed on a range of possible outcomes. To win with this bet, you have to be very accurate in the wager. There’s more to it than just selecting the favorites over the underdog and cashing in. It is imperative you look at the stop indicators so as to bring down the risk factor.

Over and Under Betting

This popular type of bet is very simple. Let us suppose that two college’s football teams A and B are playing. The bookies have a line setting the total at 45 points. Now, if you place an over type of bet and the score ends something along the lines of 35-45, then your bet wins. But if the total tally is below 45 then you lose the over bet.

Bet Responsibly

Bet the amounts you are comfortable losing. Avoid going overboard and spending all your money on a single bet.
