Handy Fine-Tuning Housecleaning Bookings

Since procuring $50 million Series C venture capital funding in November 2015, two Harvard Business School graduates and founders of Handy, formerly Handybook, have been busy perfecting their model, screening professional cleaning services, refining their ordering process and building support services. Receiving an unexpected boost when chief competitor Homegrown unexpectedly closed its doors, Handy’s founders Umang Dua and CEO Olsin Hanrahan, have focused on their 28-city service portfolio before broadening the company’s reach.

But, new refinements and services, such as new furniture assembly and shopping have complimented Handy’s existing NYC home cleaning services quite nicely. With more than 1 million bookings, the future looks bright for the Uber-like model that lists customer specifications, including rooms to be cleaned and other needs, before posting the job online for bids from approved contractors.

After ironing out support systems and improving technology to manage customer relations and screening their pro service providers, Handy now stands atop the online housecleaning booking industry. The future looks bright for the New York City-based startup even as the founders have resisted the temptation to widen their service areas.

One of the biggest advancements was implementing Handy’s robust onboarding strategy in January 2016 and improving customer service, including complaint processing. Since launching in 2012, the founders have acquired two former competitors, Mopp and Exec, and seen Homework fail while Handy’s market share continues to increase.

Like most housecleaning and home service businesses, Handy has experienced its share of growing pains while learning how to convert complaints to continuous profit centers. The founders turned the corner by outsourcing customer service and implementing its proprietary virtual onboarding on a city-by-city basis.

Demand has been strong and technology has helped reduce company overhead. Kudos to the founding entrepreneurs for their ingenuity, perseverance and for the resourcefulness to recognize the need for improvements and for then implementing new systems while meeting strong demand in the home service and housecleaning sector.

How Sujit Choudhry Is Building Constitutional Government

The Professor Of Constitutional Law

As a Rhodes Scholar and a graduate of universities throughout the Western world, Sujit Choudhry is well versed in constitutional law. This expertise has allowed him to work as a professor of law at several North American universities including the University of Berkeley and the University of Toronto. While serving as a professor. He has taught courses discussing constitutional governments across the world and the various ways they seek to solve their issues within their societies.

Lending Advice To Developing Nations

Outside of the academic setting, Choudhry has extensive field experience as an advisor to various developing nations aiming to create their own constitutional governments. South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Ukraine are just a few of the countries that he has advised. In 2011, during the Arab Spring, he advised a number of government reformers on how to create constitutions to prevent the former abuses suffered under totalitarian regimes. Choudhry’s work does end with advising nations. He is also an active member of various NGOs and uses the knowledge he’s acquired to help these NGOs develop a better world for all.

His Latest Projects

Currently, he is involved in 3 research projects. These projects focus on the various security issues surrounding emerging constitutional governments. As the Arab Spring has proven, movements to create entirely new governments are not always successful. At times, internal struggles and actos aim to either maintain authoritarian power or establish a new totalitarian government to replace the old one. Choudhry is using these projects to understand how to ensure that countries can safely transition to constitutional governments and what signs indicate there are possibly issues involved.

Choudhry As An Author

Sujit Choudhry is also an accomplished author with a number of books discussing constitution building already published. A particular strong area of interest for Choudhry is the development of new constitutional governments. Recently, Choudhry announced plans to release a new book under the Oxford University Press discussing the constitution of India. He intends for this book to serve as a handbook to help readers understand how the government of India operates.

Reputable Companies Like Devco Construction in New Brunswick Have Felt the Slow Economy

The Devco Development Company has been renovating the downtown district of New Brunswick since the 1970s. They remove the old, inhabitable, buildings and replace them with new construction.

In 2005, they built the Heidrich Hotel, a $105 million project, and today it is a beautiful hotel and convention center that otherwise would have been a dingy space. The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, CRDA, with other lenders, made a loan to of $20 million to DEVCO for the new construction.

Because Devco has been working downtown for over 40 years, the loan was not a risk. Throughout the decades, Devco has used $1.5 billion in their renovations, and it has always been repaid. How else could they still be working in the same city? They have been working on the entire area and will continue to work towards the beautification of New Brunswick for years to come.

This New Brunswick Company is non-profit and has a vision and a passion for urban development. The Heidrick Hotel was built and finished, and the hotel opened its doors for business as scheduled. Due to the economic crisis of 2008, the hotel has never had full capacity, which is what it requires to make a profit and fully repay the loan.

This is why they are having to repay the $20 million to Casino at a much slower rate than expected. Their lawyer, Chris Paladino, announced that certainly, they will repay the loan, it will just take longer.

In the past 10 years, Devco has already paid $30 million in bonds back and made payments up until last year. On previous renewal projects, they have repaid over $1.5 billion. They have put great effort into the renewing of New Brunswick and has been very successful in transforming empty street blocks into gorgeous hotels, shops and convention centers.

Former Atlanta Hawks Chief Owner Takes AIG Insurance To Court

Bruce Levenson has sued the insurance company, AIG, on behalf of his investment group that had previously owned the Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC. The claim he is litigating is that AIG has committed breach of contract and bad faith in their responsibility to cover the settlement of a lawsuit brought by former employee, Danny Ferry. Levenson is holding AIG in default in making payment of the legal settlement ordered in 2015.

This lawsuit is after-the-fact, as Levenson’s group no longer owns the team. This means that nothing in the lawsuit affects the Hawks or their current owners, the Ressler Group, in any way. This all started after former managing team employee, Danny Ferry, won a judgement from his wrongful termination lawsuit. Bruce Levenson has a legal insurance contract to prove that AIG is responsible to pay for such a judgement. AIG refuses to even acknowledge the issue, much less pay their contractual obligations. The public has never yet learned that actual judgement amount that was privately awarded by a court to Ferry.

Bruce Levenson became involved in publishing early on. He remained steadfastly in that industry until fairly recently. Now, he’s a Forbes billionaire and  invests in many businesses outside of publishing. He has started several restaurants and gotten involved in owning and managing professional sports teams. This is what led him to such an intimate investment in the Atlanta Hawks. After buying the Hawks, his investment owner group also bought the local hockey team, the Atlanta Thrashers. While they were at it, they went ahead and bought the Phillips Arena stadium.

 

Securus Technologies Fights Back In GTL Battle

In June 2016, I became aware of a battle between two competing video visitation for inmates over the technology each uses as they seek to dominate the industry. I believe Securus Technologies decided to fight back after a series of claims were made by the Global Tel Link organization that Securus states in a PR Newswire press release are untrue and have misled those who read an earlier GTL press release. There are a number of inaccuracies identified in the GTL article that Securus has been at pains to discuss and correct to make sure its own customers and investors get the truth about the claims made in a patent dispute between the two civil and criminal justice technology companies.

 

I have followed Securus Technologies for a number of years and I have noticed the company has been at the forefront of the development of video visitation technology for inmates in a range of prison environments, which are designed to provide a more secure and safer way of completing inmate visitations for a range of inmates, according to information I found on Vimeo; the dispute with GTL finally made its way to a review by the United States Patent Trial and Appeals Board that Securus believes has brought the case to a temporary halt as a Texas Federal Court has placed a stay on either side moving forward with any claims. I was happy to see the security features that form the basis of the battle Securus Technologies believes it is wininng were not permitted to be patented and some aspects GTL hoped to patent were not included in a definite judgment. I was pleased to see Securus Technologies is preparing to return to court sometime in 2017 to fight for the justice the company believes will be served in the coming months.

 

Bruce Levenson Looks To Bring GM Insurance Case To A Close

Ever since the 2015 sale of the Atlanta Hawks NBA franchise to a consortium headed by Tony Ressler was brought to a successful completion former owner Bruce Levenson has been concentrating on the philanthropic work he has been involved in for a number of years. However, Levenson and the members of the consortium he once headed at the Hawks are now hoping a legal challenge will draw their business with the NBA to a close; Levenson and his fellow members of the Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment Consortium have brought a civil action against insurance giant AIG concerning the contract buyout of former Hawks General Manager Danny Ferry.

A six year $18 million contract was given to Ferry in 2012, but the sale of the franchise in 2015 saw the GM mutually terminate his contract just two days before the purchase of the Hawks was officially announced; Forbes billionaire Levenson’s team began discussing Ferry’s position as early as April 2015 with the insurance provider, but following the September 2015 sale of the franchise have heard nothing from AIG. The finer points of the case are not being discussed by Levenson’s attorneys, but the former hawks owner believes a payout was due on the workplace insurance policy used by the Hawks under his leadership.

Following the sale of the Hawks in 2015 Bruce Levenson has been concentrating his efforts on his philanthropic works, which include a large level of funding and fund raising provided for the School of Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at the University of Maryland. Levenson has also played a key role in many anti racism groups, such as the Anti-Defamation League; in honor of his mother-in-law Bruce Levenson provided a large amount of the funding needed to construct and operate the U.S. Holocaust Museum, which Bruce hopes will keep alive the memory of the Holocaust during World War II for future generation.

Workville Shared Working Spaces Excels in Coworking Real Estate

 

Coworking spaces are gaining popularity with small businesses in many cities across the United States, and it’s clear to see why. Not only do business owners save money on the rent and upkeep of a brick and mortar building, but there are other advantages and benefits that even surpass working at home. When you work out of your home there is always the temptation to go to the refrigerator, quit work early or be distracted by family members and what they are doing.

 

Coworking spaces have the advantage of quantity so that quality is improved as a result. In the beginning, it was the millennials who spearheaded the shared office space movement, and they thrived. This led more entrepreneurs to try the concept for their own business, and they found success. High-speed Internet is typically available, isolation is eliminated, there are no utility bills, and rent includes many amenities depending on the workspace community you are in.

 

The most significant benefit is that workers are much happier. A load of extra costs and maintenance has been lifted and they are in a professional atmosphere which encourages them to focus on their business. Workers are more creative, have a more balanced lifestyle and work more efficiently.

Evolution of Smooth: Sensuality and Health In A Spherical Lip Balm

Lip balm is a great way to keep your lips at their most desirable, but you’ve got to choose the right option. There are two main qualities you’re looking for your lips to retain: healthiness and sensuousness. Sensuousness is often tied to “smooth”. The smoother your lips, the more sensuous they become. Health is tied to fullness. When your lips are full, they are like ripe raspberries waiting to mingle with other smooth and healthy lips. If you can get your lips incredibly smooth and incredibly full, you will be exceptionally irresistible.
EOS, or Evolution of Smooth, has recently developed a new line of lip balms in multicolored spherical applicators. Complete with a variety of differing delectable flavors, these balms come in several families to help you remain your sexiest. There are five main balm families. There’s Smooth Sticks, which are an old way of packaging this new lip balm. Then there’s Shimmer Smooth, Visibly Soft Smooth, Organic Smooth, and Active Protection Smooth. See Ulta.com for the variety of products from Evolution of Smooth.

Shimmer Smooth Spheres give your lips a sensuous look that has a slight degree of moisture silhouetting it. Your lips look like they need a kiss right now. It’s a great balm for a night on the town or the club. Meanwhile, Visibly Soft Smooth has a slightly more elegant caste to it, and is designed to evince feminine vulnerability and beauty simultaneously. Additionally, there’s a slight elegance. Next, Organic Smooth gives your lips a naturally sensuous, full appearance that has no hint of “putting on airs”, as the antiquated saying goes. Last but not least there’s Active Protection Smooth. If you’re in a harsh environment low on moisture, it’s hard to beat this formula. Additionally, if your body is naturally dry, this can at the very least help make your lips stand out.
