Relmada Therapeutics Seeks to Change Its Complaint Against Laidlaw and Its Executives

Relmada Therapeutics recently filed an amendment request to the Nevada District Court following its previous complaint against Laidlaw & Company. Relmada Therapeutics, which is a clinical company offering novel therapies for controlling chronic pain, apparently made an agreement with Laidlaw to provide it with investment banking services. It is accusing Laidlaw & Company of failure to honor the terms of agreement citing intentional breach of contract.

In its capacity as Relmada’s investment banker, Laidlaw allegedly released confidential information about the company. Consequentially, Relmada wants Laidlaw to pay for the damages caused by the oversight. Relmada also wants monetary compensation to cover the fees it used to respond to Laidlaw’s false proxy materials.

If the Nevada District Court judge agrees to the amendment, then Laidlaw will have to part with a lot of money to cover the breach of fiduciary duty. In its claim, Relmada noted that the court had already provided Laidlaw’s executives Mathew Eitner and James Ahern with an injunction.

The company was formed in London, but it later relocated to the United States with New York City becoming its main base of operation.

Relmada Therapeutics’ case is just one of many complaints the company has been mentioned in.

New Brunswick DEVCO Struggles to Meet Loan Repayment

The Middlesex County Improvement Authority did not have the funds to pay $1 million in principal and interest that it owed for a $20 million loan it got from the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority. It’s been five years now that The Improvement Authority had already been missing payments, totaling $7 million. The loan was originally made in 2005, which funded the construction of a New Brunswick hotel called The Heldrich. The hotel also has a conference center that the New Brunswick Development Corporation (a nonprofit) developed.
Stephen Sweeney, the president of the state’s Senate said that the corporation is a shining example of what can happen when public money is put towards the efforts of private firms and turned into large construction projects. The company is also being modelled by its sister company in Atlantic City, called Atlantic City Development Corp. They plan to raise over $200 million in financing (public and private) along with $19.5 of CRDA funds to develop a new project in the Chelsea section of the city called Gateway.

Chris Paladino is the attorney who put together both projects and oversaw the $20 million loan for Heldrich. The hotel has experienced low occupancy and has not attracted as many guests as it could have. The corporation had to use $750,000 of its own funds to fund certain basic costs. The CRDA loan was part of a $100 million package, including municipal bonds. The senior bond holders have been paid back with 5% interest on schedule, but subordinate bond holders have not seen a payment for a number of years.

DEVCO

Devco, also known as New Brunswick Development Corporation, is a private nonprofit development company specializing in real estate. It was founded in the 1970’s as a way to revitalize the city. It was named as a powerful engine of economic growth by the New York Times.

They focus on creating alliances with public and private partners. They finance projects that are of mixed-use. Their strategies often involve hotels and other large projects. DEVCO has handled over $1.5 billion of development.

This is a recap on an article originally written by Press of Atlantic City.

Marc Sparks Impresses With Spark Tank Initiative

I have been aware of Marc Sparks as a respected businessperson in the Dallas Fort Worth area of Texas for a number of years, but I have only recently discovered how impressive he is as an entrepreneur when I read about his Spark Tank initiative. As an entrepreneur and investment specialist I had followed the business career of Sparks for a number of years as he appeared to me to become one of the most respected business leaders in this field in the state of Texas; it was only with the announcement of the second recipient of the Spark Tank Award that I realized how important Marc had become as a local philanthropist.

Mark Sparks works alongside Lynne Sipiora to work through applications for the Spark Tank initiative to uncover a deserving project during each application period they believe will have a lasting impact on the Dallas Fort Worth area. The second recipient of the $5,000 grant is the not for profit Mommies In Need group that provides qualified nannies to aid families who are affected by a medical emergency, but cannot afford a specialist nanny to aid in their time of need.

The $5,000 grant will allow Mommies In Need to provide the help and support families require without any financial burden on the family in need. I was happy to read the Mommies In Need group were already working to put the $5,000 grant to good use with the employment of bilingual nannies, and those with specific medical training; I believe initiatives like the Spark Tank grant provided by Marc Sparks play an important role in helping the local community with providing support for those who require assistance in difficult situations.

I was pleased to see Marc Sparks and Lynne Sipiora have already opened up applications for the third round of funding for the Spark Tank grant, which will see applications close on Oct 1st 2016. In order to be eligible for the grant each organizations must be registered as a 501c3 non profit for at least two years at the application time; the Spark Tank panel allows applicant ten minutes to make a presentation detailing why they should receive the award before a question and answer session with the panel.

RWS’ New Reputation Management Software Has Just Been Announced

RWS provides services to retailers centered around certain independent durable goods. Sellers like RWS bring the public things like furniture, appliances, and mattresses. In short, the purchases are somewhat larger in scale than others, and so the demographic can be primarily a solid one.
On August 23rd, 2016, Retailer Web Services (RWS) announced their new software WebFronts Review. This software has been developed partially based on a consumer survey which was conducted among a group of 1,400+ participants. The survey concerned buying habits based on the information which consumers gleaned from reviews of products by other consumers. From that research six best practices were developed by RWS, which will be explored.

The best practices used for this demographic rely in a high quotient of review sharing. Basically, Monitoring, Alerting, Responding, Soliciting, Showcasing and Sharing is the process around which WebFronts Review has been developed. When online reviews from multiple websites can be monitored from a single location, it’s easy to alert users that a new review–positive or negative–has been produced. From there, responses can be sent out either automatically or directly. There are templates for such responses designed to streamline response time, as well as that spent composing an answer to a good or bad review. Solicitation comes in the form of actionable feedback requested either from negative or positive reviewers. Negative reviewers are encouraged to say what they disliked. Should that be something fixable, a company can fix it. Positive reviewers are prompted to say what they did like, and which aspects of products actually worked. When a positive review is gained, it should be showcased on the main website of the company; and this shouldn’t be an hours-long process, but the click of a mouse. Additionally, good review is a good way to Brand Yourself and should be shared on social media so disparate consumers and long-time regulars can be made aware.

Using these best practices, RWS has designed a new software which is part of an increasingly integral quotient of retail operations in modernity. Protecting reputation through cogent online marketing and management really can’t be understated in today’s world, and opting out of such programs isn’t an option anymore.

Doe Deere: The Face of Women Business Owners With Hopes of Success

For some women, makeup boost their confidence and enhances their personal appearance. for them, makeup is used to express themselves and re-create their image in a fun and feminine way. For women like Doe Deere, makeup is the epitome innovation and ambition. The creation of her cosmetic line Lime Crime was less about supply and demand and more about carrying a childhood ambition into a profitable business entity. Surprisingly enough, Deeres’ message provides invaluable advice that is as simple as make up but as complex as the industry.

Doe Deere encourages women to pursue their passions by exploring their gifts. Lime Crime is an example of identifying that gift by analyzing your underlying talents and then selecting a vehicle that utilizes utilizes talents exquisitely. Deere was not an expert at applying makeup when she first got started. Infact, she believed that she was not very good at it. it was not her expertise and cosmetics that influenced the startup of her company, it was her strong desire to be unique in her fashion expressions and her passion for introducing her unique creations to her peers.

Doe Deere took the time to learn how to make lipstick, eyeshadows and mascaras using her own ingredients. This allowed her to create colorful products that were not available anywhere else because they otherwise did not exist. Once she debuted her creations to the world, the momentum from her ambition merged with fate, and her business became extraordinarily successful overnight. As one can see, once women discover their deepest ambitions and identify their hidden talents, the obstacles that would normally hinder the progress will become nonexistent.

Another message Deere emphasizes is the concept of avoiding self place limitations. Because Lime Crime is a cosmetic brand, it would be expected of Deere to consider expanding the brand by incorporating additional cosmetics. while the concept indeed makes sense, it does not represents a complete assessment of the possibilities. makeup is not only part of the cosmetic industry, it is also one of the many pieces of the fashion sector. Makeup is just as much about fashion as it is cosmetics, so Lime Crime is a fashion brand that has the capability of expanding by taking the main color palette and using it to create fashion brands that produce purses, jewelry, shoes and other accessories. Deere has embraced that notion, having attended fashion school in New York and is making progress in adding clothing and accessories to her line up. She still plans to incorporate the distinguishments that make her brand what it is which is bold, vibrant colors. But since that style of boldness is applicable in various areas of the fashion industry, Deere plans to monopolize her uniquely colorful concept and expand it into other revenue streams.

Considering that cosmetics as a whole is a $62.46 billion dollar a year business sector that has permitted women like Doe Deere to accomplish their ambitions and reach a status of extraordinarily wealth. In offering motivation to women who may want to follow in her footsteps in business, her message of encouragement for women entrepreneurs to follow their inner ambitions and remain open minded is not only a direct reflection of her own success, but a testimony of how effective her methodology is.

Shine With Botanical Oils: WEN

How could any of us have missed the television commercials for WEN by Chaz Dean? The models with the flowing manes, rich with color, tangle free and silky looked almost too good to be true.
We have been conditioned to believe that ramping up the hair to such finesse requires a multitude of products. Hair magician Chaz Dean has been able to pull off the same effect with just one product. This product doesn’t push and pull the hair either which way, it repairs the hair and allows it to shine from within.

Bustle writer Emily McClure trial tested the product for all those doubters out there who would trust a first hand account. Along with descriptions of how the product change her hair she also included photos so readers could see the difference in her hair with their own eyes.

It is easy to see through the progression of photographs that Emily’s hair did drastically change with the use of WEN cleansing conditioner. The natural botanical oils in the cleansing conditioner kept her own natural hair oils intact and added moisture and a mega watt shine. Emily felt that her hair was heavy at first but only because she was used to very lathering and stripping shampoos. This effect was felt not right after washing but after sleeping on her hair, so she simply changed her washing routine to the morning instead of before bed.

Overall Emily’s experience with Wen took some getting used to. She felt as if she were using a lot of product at once in her hair per cleansing session. However, it also ended up being that she streamlined her washing routine and did not need to use as many products to get her hair where WEN did with just the one product.
