Shaquille O’Neal and Boraie Development Hosting “Believe in Newark” Tourney


NJ.com reports that basketball giant (both literally and figuratively) Shaquille O’Neal is returning to his native Newark, New Jersey to co-host a basketball tournament that is scheduled to take place right in front of City Hall. Along with Newark Mayor Ras Baraka, the 7’ 2” retired sports star will oversee the games. Both male and female high school players are eligible to register. Preliminary games were held at the JFK Recreation Center. O’Neal himself began his illustrious career on a Newark high school basketball team.

Newark was a really rough place when O’Neal was growing up here in the 70s. That is why his parents did everything in their power to keep him off the streets. They enrolled him in the local Boys and Girls Club. Although he left to pursue his fantastic basketball career, he has maintained a presence in Newark. Throughout the years he has put millions into its economy via various investments. Back in 2012, he partnered with real estate developer, the New Brunswick-based Boraie Development, to resurrect an old, run down theater in his beloved city.

That was only the beginning. Before it played out, a sport’s legend partnering on a real estate project was considered risky. Other stars have done it in the past and have ended up having to file bankruptcy. However, that has always been because the stars partnered with companies that didn’t really have what it takes. Boraie Development definitely has what it takes and O’Neal found that out from the first project. The theater turned out perfectly and has proven to be an enormous success. Since its opening, attendance at the venue has doubled every year.

Shaq and the real estate juggernaut continue to run Newark development projects together. The partnership has worked extremely well for both. It wasn’t long before the partnership began garnering quite a bit of public attention. This is not unusual especially considering O’Neal’s enormous fame and wealth. Because of his already enormous wealth, he is not really doing this for the money. His primary aim is to help his native home. That being said, O’Neal has also partnered with Boraie on real estate ventures in other cities.

He has several other business ventures but still remains a part of the planning process with Boraie. The vastly experienced and knowledgeable Boraie then handles all of the details of the operation.

I Used Skout For The First Time,And I Can’t Wait To Use It Again

I’m a person who likes to go online to several different websites and chat, but dating is not something that seemed realistic in my eyes. Although I would consider looking for a date online, at this time, I was not looking for a date. I started searching through the application store on my smartphone, and I came across the Skout application, and it did advertise it as a dating application. I was going to pass it up, except for the fact that it said it was a socializing network too, so I change my mind. I went ahead and downloaded the application.

It was my first time on the network, and I had to create an account. Creating an account was simple and easy, and it only took me a few minutes to put together a profile. I have some pictures on my phone, so I put them in my profile. I was anxious to see what the network had to offer, and I was very surprised to see how many fun things Skout had available. Skout allows me to chat with others on the network, I can send messages to others, and I can even send pictures if I wanted to.

Skout even has a section for comments, and it’s basically where a person can talk about different things that’s on their mind, and I have a lot of fun in this section. I’ve been known to spend several hours a day talking on the Skout network, especially since I always use it on my phone. Since I started using my phone to access the Skout network, I learned about “shake to chat.” Shake to chat is amazing because once I shake my phone using the feature, then I’ll see someone come onto my screen out of nowhere, and we can start talking.

I’ve had people come onto my screen, and they were all the way over in Africa or Asia, and I’m fascinated when I learn things about the different cultures that are out there. Although I live in the USA, I love using Skout because it lets me have access to people in different countries. I even decided to access the Skout Travel feature, which only costs 25 Skout points. Skout points are easy enough to get, and they are low in cost, and I can use them on Skout network.

Once I got points in my account, then I went ahead, and I used the points to access the travel feature, and boy did I have a lot of fun. I was able to take a virtual journey to Australia. I got to see some beautiful places that Sydney, Australia had to offer, and while I was there, I spoke with someone who actually lived in Sydney, Australia. The Skout network is amazing, and when I’m ready to date, I can’t wait to see what the network has to offer me. If I find a date, then I’ll have even more to praise Skout for.


How to Find the Right Investment Firm to Work With

Whether you have recently made the decision to start investing in stocks, mutual funds and other types of investments or you want to switch investment firms for any number of reasons, you may be wondering what to look for in your investment firm. While it may seem at first glance as though all investment firms are the same, the reality is that they are actually quite different. By focusing on these important points as you research the options, you may be able to more easily find the right investment firm to work with.

The Types of Investments Available to You
First, analyze the types of investments that you will have access to through the firm. Most will provide you with the ability to purchase stocks, but some give you access to hedge funds, IPOs and other types of investments. In addition, some have minimum investment amounts, and others have no limit. If you are an experienced investor with a significant pool of assets, a minimum investment amount may not be a concern. However, if you are new to investing or otherwise have limited funds available to invest, a sharebuilder account or a similar type of account with very small share purchases available may be more ideal.

The Transaction Fees
The fees will also vary from firm to firm. Some are so high that they are not well-suited for investors who want to make smaller investments. Firms with higher per transaction fees are typically only affordable for investors with larger sums of money, but some firms have more affordable fees that are well-suited for investors who make smaller investors or frequent investments.

The Resources and Tools Available
Another important difference relates to the types of resources and research tools available. Some may have significant charts and graphs with links to news stories related to the stocks. Others may have calculators and other analytical tools that can help you to determine when to buy as well as when to sell. Some will also analyze your investments up to this point so that you can monitor your efforts.

The Management Team
A final point to consider when researching investment firms relates to the management team and their experience. The best firms are those that have experienced, knowledgeable management. For example, Brad Reifler, a Partner at CIFCO International Group, has experience successfully starting and managing several top financial management firms, and he also has a significant education in finance.

The investment firm that you choose to work with will impact the types of investments that you have access to, how well-informed you may be about your investment decisions and even the cost of the transactions. With this in mind, it is important to carefully research the investments firms you may be thinking about working with so that you make an informed decision. While this can take time and effort, it ultimately can help you to generate a better return on your investments over time.

I Found Running Partners On The Skout Network

I’ve been on the Skout network for years, and in the past I used it to find a boyfriend. Although things didn’t end up working out between us, I still loved the Skout network, especially the Skout dating application because I was able to take the application anywhere I went. As far as dating on the network goes, I would recommend Skout to everyone, but I figured that the Skout network could be used for other things besides dating, especially since I like to exercise.

I was looking for a running partner because I was training for an upcoming marathon. I see some people running in the park during the weekdays, but on the weekends I don’t see as many people around. It seems as if people like the party on the weekends, and they don’t really mind doing extra jogging during the weekdays. I wasn’t sure that I would be able to find someone to train with but I asked around. Most people were private, and they didn’t want to exercise with anyone else. I decided that it was time to go to social media to look for what I needed.

I just needed someone who had done a marathon before, and maybe they could give me pointers on how to keep up with all the miles that I had ahead of me. The marathon was going to be 20 miles, and I really wanted to finish the entire thing. The most I’ve ever run in the past was 10 miles, so I knew I had an uphill battle to get to 20 miles. I am a member of Skout, and I’ve always used it in the past to socialize with others. I didn’t think anything was wrong by going to the Skout network to look for a running partner.

I went on Skout one day, and I started advertising on my page that I was looking for someone to run with. I also put up information that I was going to be running a 20 mile marathon, so I needed someone who was experienced and reliable. What I love about Skout is that it has locations of other users, and the network shows people who are close by, based on where you. I couldn’t find someone that I jog pass in the morning train with me, but I found a lot of random people on the Skout network who wanted to train with me.

I had so many people responding to me that I had to be selective on who I chose to exercise with. I chose three people that had run marathons before, and their marathons were longer than the marathon I had coming up. I met with them all in person, and we all made out a schedule so we could train together. Not only has Skout helped me to find three new friends, but they trained me so well that I’m now able to go up to 15 miles without stopping to long, and I hope to be able to reach my 20 mile marathon goal.


Finding a Reliable Dating App

There are tons of dating apps to choose from for people that are looking for romance or a fun night out. As with anything else, not all apps are equal. Some apps are better than others. While some apps can provide a great experience and is reliable for bringing people together, there are other apps that are more trouble than they are worth. This can cause people to wonder what dating sites are good to join. In some cases, this can also cause people to be discouraged and give up on dating altogether. Fortunately, there are ways to find a good dating app to download.

For one thing, everything is reviewed on the Internet. This includes dating apps. Therefore, one just needs to look up reviews of the apps that they are interested in downloading to their mobile device. It is important to look up all types of reviews. The reviews that hold the most weight are the ones that describe the many different features. These reviews are thorough and will go into the advantages and disadvantages of using the app. This way, one could know better what to expect from an app. Of course, one wants to join the site and download the app with the best reviews.

One of these apps that are well reviewed is Skout. Skout has plenty of features as a dating app and will protect one from many issues that can come with dating apps. Also, Skout is not limited to dating. One can also participate in other activities. Among these activities is socializing. As a matter of fact, Skout is also a social network with the option of finding a date. As one participates on Skout, he will gain points that he can spend to use on different activities which include sending gifts and finding out who has checked out one’s own profile.

Skout is one of those apps with a lot of care put towards it. This gives it a high quality that is not matched by other apps. It is one of the highest grossing apps that people could use to socialize and set up dates. It is also good for setting people apart based on their age categories. For instance, teenagers are not put with the adults. This gives them a little more safety and protection from unfavorable circumstances.

It is important for one to look closely at the dating apps that he is interested in so that he could be sure that he is joining a reliable app. After all, no one wants any nasty surprises. Some apps are very good at protecting users from any of those types of surprises.

FreedomPop Manages to Raise $30 Million

FreedomPop is an L.A. based tech start up that first got developed back in 2012. Since then the new telecom company has been growing astronomically thanks to their unique twist on what it means to get customers in with ‘free products’. FreedomPop focuses on giving their customers an essentially free cell phone plan: free mobile, talk, and text and then they upsell to those same customers in hopes of actually making their initial sale. The product plan has been working despite some leery investors and now the company is coming off of a $30 million investment weekend.

For FreedomPop on fortune much of their recent company drama has been focused on whether or not the company is ready to sell or merge with a bigger telecom giant. The current economic climate for telecom companies has made FreedomPop, who recently turned the corner on one million subscribers, something of a market phenomenon. With AT&T and Comcast purchasing up any promising young companies it seemed like a lock that FreedomPop was on the block. This rumor, however, ended up being just that.

CEO Stephen Stokols broke the radio silence regarding a possible M&A agreement by saying that FreedomPop was not going to be sold. Stokols admitted that he saw at least six offers for the company with one of those offers broaching the $250 million mark. Stokols passed on all of those offers as the head of the company citing that it would be a “premature time to sell”. With M&A rumors completely put to rest it was now time for FreedomPop to focus on their next big push in the telecom world. Through a round of Series B investing FreedomPop was able to bring in an additional $30 million in support through various venture capitalists including Partech Ventures. Partech Ventures has back 50 companies since 1982, including 21 that went public.

The reason for FreedomPop’s success comes down primarily to their ability to be the first peer-to-peer data sharing telecom company on the market. The reason they are able to afford doing this is because they purchase data from Sprint wholesale. The savings they are then able to pass on to their customers are so large that the company is able to eat the expenses of the nearly 50% of their customers who end up never purchasing a thing. Though the business plan is slightly whacky it has been working to a supreme degree and now the company is looking at an expansion into European markets.

Right now FreedomPop is focusing on soft launches in the United Kingdom as well as Asia and new deals with companies in those markets should clear the way. FreedomPop’s goal is to become the next big telecom company.
