Missed Repayment on Devco Hotel Project

The Middlesex County (New Jersey) Improvement (MCIA) recently missed a $1 million payment on a $20 million loan provided by the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority. The MCIA took out the loan on behalf of Devco, the New Brunswick Development Company, to fund a revitalization project in an economically depressed area in Middlesex County. The project involved the development of a hotel and convention center called the Heldrich, which opened in 2007. The loan was part of a larger financing package that Devco put together from various funding sources.

Despite the positive effects of the Heldrich on the community, such as over 200 union jobs, more than a million dollars in real estate taxes, and the economic boost gained from over 100,000 visitors per year, the MCIA has been in arrears on its payments for years. CRDA is a subordinate lender, meaning it has a lower repayment priority than other creditors. However, Devco has said that with the healthier economic climate, the loan will be repaid within a few years.

The New Brunswick Development Company, better known as Devco, is a non-profit organization committed to urban revitalization and economic development in Middlesex County. The company has secured $1.6 million in funding for various projects through innovative public-private funding solutions. Devco is especially well-known for its mixed use developments.

Equities First Points Out Changing Pattern

The global economy is more volatile than ever. As the United States economy continues to struggle in the wake of the housing collapse of 2008, the exit of Great Britain from the European Union has only made the atmosphere worse. Traditional investment vehicles such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are more volatile than ever. This is important for Equities First, who has noticed a growing trend among people looking for a loan.

Equities First is a global leader in financing solutions. They have noticed that more investors are using stocks as collateral when taking out a loan. Equities First believes this is because many banks are enforcing stricter criteria when it comes to handing out loans. While this is understandable given the economic collapse in 2008, people looking for loans are using stocks as collateral to qualify for these loans. Using stocks to back loans is a new alternative for people who need more capital to qualify for a loan. This can help people either qualify for a new loan or receive a lower interest rate on an existing loan. Typical interest rates on loans backed by stocks are coming in at between 3 and 4 percent. Furthermore, there aren’t any restrictions on these loans. This gives borrowers a wider range of options for the money. Of course, these loans also carry risk. For people who miss payments, it is important to make sure their stocks retain their value. In this unpredictable economy, that can be problematic.

Equities First Holdings has been around since 2002. They specialize in helping clients find other ways to finance difficult projects. They also help supply clients with capital against many different publicly traded stocks. With extensive financial expertise, Equities First Holdings has developed an impressive track record of happy and satisfied clients.

Over the past 14 years, Equities First Holdings has been involved in more than 650 financial transactions with a total worth exceeding $1.4 billion. This allows Equities First Holdings to offer high-value loans at low-interest rates. Equities First Holdings has offices in 9 countries spread across the United States, Australia, and Asia.

Venezuela’s Election Board Pushes Referendum Vote Back To 2017 According To Assemblyman José Manuel González

The clock is ticking for Venezuela’s president, and the president keeps changing the cadence, so he has more time to turn one of the world’s major oil producers into a complete economic and social disaster. President Nicolas Maduro is Hugo Chavez’s successor, and he has done a miserable job as the leader of this Latin American nation. The opposition party is trying to force the socialist president to resign, but Maduro is determined to stay in power. The majority National Assembly is made up of people those oppose Maduro, and they have been trying to form a national agreement to get the economy moving again, according to the Deputy of the National Assembly from the state of Guárico, José Manuel González.

José Manuel González is a well-known agricultural entrepreneur, and he has been trying to get the government to increase domestic food production, but Maduro has refused to listen. Tons of corn and rice could help the starving people, but in states like Guárico the crime and the idleness have ruined a lot of the farms. González is a well-respected businessman and gubernatorial candidate. He is dedicated to getting Venezuela moving again. The Chavismo socialist government has outlived its usefulness, and González wants a democratic government to take over. And, he’s not alone. More than 1 million people jammed the streets of Caracas recently demanding a recall referendum vote. The people of Venezuela need help but Maduro has another agenda.

Even though more than 80 percent of the people in Venezuela want to remove Maduro from office, the government-run election board just pushed the referendum vote back to 2017. That means the socialist party could stay in power to at least 2018, according to González. Most assemblymen believe the country won’t last that long under the current leadership and government policies. González wants help from other nations and so does more than 50 percent of the National Assembly.

At this point, the only choice is massive demonstrations orchestrated by the democratic opposition, according to Mr. González. Civil disobedience may be the only answer for Venezuela, but José Manuel González still wants to settle the issues through a national agreement.

Sanjay Shah Denmark family is personally affected by autism. He has a son named Nikhil who was born with the disorder and he wanted to create a world where people do not treat his son like he is different. People with autism need special support from those close to them at times. If there is greater awareness and exposure of autism people will not feel alarmed at their different behavior. Also, it would be valuable for the scientific community to do more research into autism. If the cause of autism can be identified then families will be better able to manage and care for their autistic member. Sanjay and Usha Shah worked together to put Autism Rocks together and are happy with the results they have accomplished so far. In total, 600,000 British pounds have been raised for autism awareness.

Autism is officially defined as a developmental disorder that makes a difference in how a person communicates and interacts with the world they live in. It has no cure but if a person with autism is misunderstood it can have devastating consequences for them and their family. Every 1 in 100 people suffers from autism.

Sanjay Shah who organized Autism Rocks for his son is the CEO and founder of Solo Group Holdings and Solo Capital Group. He has earned more than $280 million over the length of his career in financial banking. He was at one time a medical student but he found his true calling in the world of investment and banking. He is considered to be retired now and he spends his days engaged in leisure and enjoying quality time with those he loves the most.

DIY Lip Tattoos?!

In this video, Wengie compares a ‘Do it Yourself’ to a ‘Just Buy It.’ This means that she tries both and determines which is worth more: doing it yourself or simply buying the already ready to use product.
Subscribe to her chanel on YouTube for more ‘DIY or BUY’ videos.

Items Needed:


  • 24-hr Lip Tint Tattoo Bottle (BUY)


  • and


  • Elmer’s Glue


  • Food Coloring


Follow these simply steps to create your own ‘DIY’ Lip Tint Tattoo.


  • Squeeze Glue into a small jar


  • Mix in the food coloring into the glue (10 drops of red, 1 drop of blue)


  • Stir well!


  • Gently Paint onto your lips with a soft makeup brush


  • Let it dry, then peel it off to see the final product!

    Wengie goes on to compare the two by doing a half and half look and found that the DIY was a lot thicker, but also sticker than the store bought one. The store bought was runnier, but easier to apply because it was not as sticky.
    Once dry, though, it was all able to peel off very easily and Wengie was very satisfied with both results!
    The final word was a big thumbs up for the DIY lip tattoo color! It was true to it’s mixed color, no weird change when she peeled it off, and it lasted well, just like the store bought one.
    So, there you have it! Try this DIY on your own sometime! The best part? You can make it any color you want!


Kyle Bass: Where Does He Draw the Ethical Line


Kyle Bass is an American hedge fund manager and the founder of Hayman Capitals Management; L.P. He is the principal of the Dallas-based firm which primary focus is global event-driven opportunities. Kyle Bass successfully predicted a bet against the US subprime mortgage crisis in 2008. He had bought the subprime securities credit defaults swaps and after the real estate bubble had burst he made a 212% return on the bet. Bass has also made other bets in recent times including the Japan, China, and the European sovereign debt. Without a doubt, he has had success in predicting subprime mortgages but has also had plenty of criticism for poor performance in some of his investments.



Many people who understand the financial world will tell you that Kyle Bass has lost his magic touch. Many believe that Bass is making bad call after bad call. He does seem to like being in the public eye as he is always doing interviews on different televisions. In the case of Argentina, every financial expert will tell you that Cristina Fernandez is economically illiterate. The country’s economy has suffered a lot from her bad decisions. This, however, did not stop Kyle Bass from making friends with Cristina. Worse he never stopped praising the woman despite leading her country to default on the sovereign debt for the second time.



Ethically, Kyle Bass has lapsed several times not just in the case of Argentina. At one point he blamed the victims of the GM cars that had non-deploying airbags and faulty power steering just to protect his investments on General Motors. Bass also targeted some pharmaceutical firms and challenged their patents to make their stocks go down and in turn made millions.



The recent oil Glut of crude oil has seen Bass go through the worst streak since he founded Hayman Capital. Mr. Bass in 2015 begun buying oil shares after it was reported by investor T. Boone Pickens that the country would be able to handle the oil glut. The energy prices in the recent days have dropped immensely, and Bass is suffering. Hayman mini fund in 2016 fell by about 7%. Consequently, the company will be ending another year in losses.
