Also in attendance were Larry King, a moderator for the forum and Michael Reagan, the son of former US President Ronald Reagan who delivered opening remarks on his father’s saying that every American should have the right to own gold.
According to Glassdoor, US Money Reserve has been in business for over 15 years showing customers why they should add gold and silver to their investments. Gold and silver coins are certainly a beauty to behold and are commonly collected by numismatic experts and dealers, but they have far more importance than that.
They are assets that could protect you from economic disasters and market fallouts. It can be tough to predict where the economy is going when there’s a high level of uncertainty, but if the time comes when banks start bringing in negative interest rates gold and silver are a safe place to store your money.
Gold coins have significant value since they are recognized tender and Philip N. Diehl, the US Money Reserve president knows a lot about them. He is the former US Mint director who led various programs in the 1990s including the Sacagawea dollar and the 50 States Quarters.
The US Mint also started an ecommerce website with live customer service support and the agency overall started becoming profitable. Diehl also was an expert behind the first platinum coin’s minting and even has had the notion to eliminate the penny.
The US Money Reserve has brand new photos in its new and improved website and visitors can get an in-depth look at all its prices and coin displays.
Those who need more information on investing and transfers can find it within the US Money Reserve’s library and live service representatives are standing by at all times.

The New Hampshire Insurance Company is confronted with a lawsuit filed against it by the old owner of the NBA franchise, the Atlanta Hawks, for a contract breach resulting from former general manager Danny Ferry’s claims. The current owner of the franchise, Tony Ressler is, however, exempted from the current legal tussle. The controversy pits AHABE Group, and Bruce Levenson, the Controlling Partner who were the previous owners against the insurer. Bruce Levenson is a Co-founder and Senior Partner of UCG (United Communication Group). He started out as a journalist for the Washington Star, and the Observer Publishing. Apart from that, he has been a director in organizations like Newsletter and Electronic Publishers Association, TechTarget.com, and the President of “I Have a Dream Foundation.” He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Washington University, and a J.D. from American University.
The civil litigation against Bruce Levenson and AIG Insurance Company was filed on Sept. 13th in the Supreme Court of Fulton, and it specifies insurance bad practice and breach of contract as the reason for the lawsuit. AHABE contends that despite being insured for losses against workplace-related policies such as misdemeanors, and wrongful termination, the insurance agency took no action to honor the claims introduced by Ferry on April, 2nd, 2015 as specified in the plan. The $18 million contract with the Hawks and Ferry over a period of six years ended abruptly two days before there was an undisclosed buyout arrangement on 22nd June 2015 between the group led by Ressler and the franchise.
So far, the total amount of money claimed remains confidential, but according to documents in court, the liability limits of the policy taken out by AHABE is sufficient to cover the cost of the application although AIG denies any knowledge of the policy being triggered, or that a claim was filed. Discussions between Ferry’s counsel and the Hawks have failed to yield a settlement despite the fact that the claim is covered by the policy. The refusal to pay the losses has no justification, according to AHABE, and it is a sign of bad faith by AIG.
Securus Technologies is a private company that offers communication solutions to correctional centers in the United States. The company uses state of the art technology, and this is why it has earned the respect of many people in the country. Securus Technologies headquarters are found in Dallas. The institution serves one million individuals at the moment.
For some time now, Securus Technologies has been receiving positive feedback from its clients in the law enforcement and correctional industry. Last year in October, the company released a report showing some positive reviews from its customers. The private company has more than two hundred patents in its portfolio, and its latest services are helping detectives and other officials in solving crimes.
One of the correctional facilities using the products from Securus Technologies wrote that it had managed to successfully retrieve incriminating information from the phone calls made by the inmates. Using this information, the detectives were able to obtain a search warrant.
Another facility wrote a letter to the company, praising it for assisting it in monitoring the calls the inmates were making to their friends and family. The facility used the monitoring software to detect and at the same time prevent some illegal activities such as selling of drugs in the correctional centers. Thanks to this service, many activities that were illegal were stopped.
During the December holidays, Securus Technologies surprised the inmates by introducing the video visitation application. The application was used by the prisoners who were being forced to spend time behind bars serving their sentences. Thanks to the service, parents, and children got an opportunity to spend some time together. The prison officials, on the other hand, were able to monitor all the activities closely with a lot of ease. These products have easily identified corrupt individuals in the correctional centers.

One of the nation’s highest paid executives is Anthony Petrello, the leader of oil drilling contractor Nabors Industries. With the constant demand for oil despite it’s fluctuating value, and the fairly steady stock values for Nabors shareholders, it’s no wonder Petrello is compensated pretty well for his leadership.
As of the last year his base salary was $1.58 million a year, but he also has earned $7.7 million in bonuses, $16.86 million in stocks and an additional $1.34 million in miscellaneous compensations making his total value at $27.5 million. As CEO and Chairman of Nabors, Petrello manages the strategic planning and technological initiatives of the company from hybrid drilling equipment to proprietary software for operations.
Petrello was hired at Nabors by former CEO Eugene Iseberg due to his knowledge of corporate law and ability to solve problems. The problem solving skills of Petrello actually started when Anthony Petrello was a young man in middle school. His passion was mathematics and it wasn’t uncommon for him to be working on highly complex problems in his free time. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in the field at Yale, but then went to Harvard law school to get his J.D. His practice in corporate law lasted for 13 years at Baker & McKenzie including 6 years as Managing Partner at the law firm. During this time he specialized in tax laws, employment issues and business structuring.
Anthony Petrello is married to Cynthia Petrello and they are parents to a young girl named Carena who has cerebral palsy. One of the hardest things for the Petrellos was not being able to provide healing treatment for Carena and being told no cure existed for her condition. But they then joined a new endeavor to join the medical world in researching cures for neurological diseases. The Texas Children’s Hospital has benefited from a $7 million gift from the Petrellos to the Dan & Jan Duncan Neurological Institute and the Petrellos hope the business world will join them in recognizing how important the work at the institute is.
An ongoing insurance dispute between the former ownership group of the Atlanta Hawks NBA franchise and the New Hampshire based insurance giant AIG that has been in play since the Summer of 2015 looks set to end in court after the Bruce Levenson led former consortium filed papers alleging breach of contract on the part of the insurance provider. The papers have been filed at a Fulton County Court by the legal team for Bruce Levenson and his fellow former owners of the Hawks franchise who believe a constructive dismissal claim should have been completed as part of an insurance policy held at the time former General Manager Danny Ferry agreed to a mutual termination of his six year $12 million contract.
The legal team for Bruce Levenson has stated an initial claim was discussed as early as April 2015 by the then Hawks owners as negotiations were taking place with potential buyers for the franchise over comments made by Danny Ferry. The legal papers go on to state Ferry’s actions prompted AIG to agree in principle to the insurance claim; however, Bruce Levenson’s legal team has stated the insurance provider has cut off all contact with the Atlanta Hawks basketball and Entertainment consortium headed by Bruce Levenson since the sale of the team to Tony Ressler’s group was announced in June 2015 according to ESPN.
Bruce Levenson (brucelevenson.com) has a number of interests in life, including the continued development of the UCG company he founded with business partner Ed Peskowitz in Washington D.C. Providing a better life for communities ion Maryland and Washington D.C. has been a major part of the life of Bruce Levenson and is reflected in his financial backing for the Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at the University of Maryland where he continues to provide support for awards given to worthy causes nominated by students across the campus.
Securus Technologies was established in 1991 and is headquartered in Dallas, Texas. Securus provides state-of-the-art communications services to correctional institutions, law enforcement facilities, and safety organizations all across North America. They serve over 2,200 correctional facilities and over 1,200,000 inmates.
Securus offers several phone services and methods of payment such as direct billing, debit billing, collect call billing and prepaid calls. One of the more popular services is the video calls which in many cases negates the need for a family to travel and have to wait in line to see their loved one. Jail voicemail, email, and money transfer are other services that are offered.
In recent months, GTL a competitor of Securus made outrageous and untrue claims about how the services and pricing of GTL were superior to those of Securus. On a point by point comparison, Securus far outperforms GTL, so Securus offered to have a head-to-head challenge just to set the record straight, to be judged by an independent party.
For a few weeks there was silence from GTL, and then they politely declined to participate in the challenge. It is very difficult to continue to make false claims with the facts staring GTL in the face. Former GTL customers who have switched to Securus favor their experience with Securus as highly positive in comparison on a 3 to 1 basis.
