Girls Incorporated of Omaha to Benefit from 2007 Buffett Wager

Uncategorized

Girls Incorporated of Omaha expects to receive about $2.2 million from a 2007 wager Warren Buffett made with Protégé Partners. Roberta Wilhelm, Executive Director of Girls Inc., said she always had confidence Buffett would be on the winning side. “When it comes to investing,” she said, “it’s never a good idea to bet against Warren. We’re just thrilled that the proceeds will benefit the girls served through our programs.”

Buffett has long been an advocate of low-cost passive investing for the average investor. In 2007, he bet $1 million that an S&P 500 index fund would outperform a basket of hedge funds selected by Protégé.

The two parties placed wagers with Long Bets in the form of $320,000 of bonds from each party, which would grow to $1 million over the ten years. In 2012, the parties agreed to instead invest the stakes in shares of Class B Berkshire Hathaway. Appreciation of those shares resulted in an estimated payday for the charity of $2.2 million vs. the intended $1 millionAlexander Rose, Executive Director of the Long Now Foundation said, “Long Bets is honored to have hosted this decade-long wager. It is both gratifying to see long-term thinking winning the bet and to have such a great outcome for the worthy charity receiving the winning stakes.”

In May of 2017, with the outcome virtually guaranteed, Ted Seides of Protégé Partners published a concession letter in which he outlined his analysis of why markets had favored Buffett over the ten-year period. “Ted has been a good sport throughout,” said Buffett, “and he knows there are no losers when the money goes to an outstanding charity.”

Conclusion of the bet comes at a good time for Girls Inc. The organization has been making plans for a new transitional housing program for teens that have aged out of the foster care system. A site has been selected and the facility is scheduled to open in 2019. According to Wilhelm, proceeds from the bet will be invested to provide a stream of income for the new program. Following Mr. Buffett’s example, Girls Inc. plans to invest in passive index funds.

On Friday, February 16 at 11:30 a.m., Buffett & Rose will participate in a ceremonial recognition of the transfer of funds as part of Girls Inc.’s annual meeting.

Girls Incorporated of Omaha is a national affiliate of Girls Incorporated. It is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring all girls to be “Strong, Smart and Bold” and has two centers in Omaha, the Katherine Fletcher Center in North Omaha and the Emma Lozier Center in South Omaha. The organization offers girls ages 5 through 18 programs in leadership, academic enrichment, health and wellness, career and college preparation and self-reliance.

In 2016, Girls Inc. dedicated a 55,365 s.f. addition to the existing Katherine Fletcher facility. The addition includes a health facility operated in collaboration with the University of Nebraska Medical Center, a gymnasium and walking track, an exercise studio and fitness center, media and teen centers and a new community playground. A key feature of renovated space in the original structure is an instructional kitchen for teaching nutrition and food preparation skills.

Girls Incorporated of Omaha was founded in 1975. Through its two centers, it serves hundreds of girls each day and more than 1,000 each year.

Blockchain’s Revolutionary Potential Goes Well Beyond Just Bitcoin Cryptocurrency

Uncategorized

 

A growing number of publicly traded companies are making big moves to join the cryptocurrency and blockchain technology frenzy. A few companies are even putting current business operations on the back burner while reorganizing to take advantage of emerging opportunities in the most disruptive, hottest sector to pop up in some time. This rapidly growing phenomenon signals opportunity and for some, a risk for capital seeking exposure to blockchain’s volatile shift into the mainstream across a growing list of industries. Technology moves so rapidly that new approaches or ideas can emerge – and fade – within short timescales. Blockchain could disrupt whole industries, by changing how trading is carried out and how transactions are processed and cleared and is being hailed as one of the most revolutionary and disruptive technological advances of today. Active Companies in the markets this week include: Mansfield-Martin Exploration Mining, Inc. (OTC: MCPI), Long Blockchain Corp. (NASDAQ: LTEA), Glance Technologies Inc. (CSE: GET) (OTC: GLNNF), MGT Capital Investments, Inc. (OTC: MGTI), Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSTK).

Mansfield-Martin Exploration Mining, Inc. (OTC: MCPI) announced today that it has expanded its preliminary arrangement with Qu Ltd. Mansfield-Martin previously agreed to provide up to 5 million oz. silver doré to Qu, Ltd. to support the Silverback ICO. Joint Venture owners in the Mine Run Program will now have the option of taking returns in Silverbacks, Qu Ltd.’s current ICO, as well as doré or US currency.

The Silverback is a cooperative decentralized crypto coin running on the Ethereum block chain. Qu Ltd. will offer 5,000,000 coins, each backed by 1 oz. of .999 silver. Pricing for Silverbacks will be exclusively in Ether, and set at a sliding discount to spot silver pricing: 50% over the first 10 days; 25% over the second 10 days; 10 % over the third 10 days; and 5% over the fourth 10 days. The ICO has a term of 60 days; thereafter, Silverbacks will be priced by traditional auction/bid-ask methods. If less than 75% of the Silverbacks are purchased, all funds will be returned to subscribers. Read this and more news for Mansfield-Martin Exploration at: http://www.marketnewsupdates.com/news/mcpi.html

Mansfield-Martin’s Mine Run Program covers processing of approximately 165,000 tons of previously mined and unprocessed materials on four historic mine sites in the Tombstone Mining District. Preliminary estimates are for upwards of $55 million in silver, gold and other metals to be produced from these deposits. The company anticipates delivery of its portion of the silver production to Qu, Ltd. in accordance with the parties’ streaming agreement, with a portion of the payment in Silverbacks. The other parties in the joint venture can now elect the same crypto-currency payment option.

Glance Technologies Inc. (CSE: GET.CN) (OTCQB: GLNNF) has reached another milestone: Since Glance launched the current version of its proprietary fraud-prevention technology more than one year ago, its platform has experienced zero fraud across all of its live locations and all Glance Pay Anywhere remote payments. Glance intends to apply elements of its fraud-prevention technology to its upcoming rewards and loyalty-based cryptocurrency platform. “We firmly believe that both traditional and cryptocurrency payments will largely be done via mobile devices,” said Glance chief executive officer, Desmond Griffin. “Payment fraud is a significant problem for anyone accepting payments and we believe it is currently a barrier to the adoption of cryptocurrencies. Thus we believe that platforms which can reduce or eliminate fraud will be best positioned to succeed in the long run.”

Five Strategies to Avoid the ‘Grandparent Scam’

Uncategorized

 Recent cases of two senior citizens in Pennsylvania falling victim to the “Grandparent Scam” are reminders that people of all ages need to pay attention to details and exercise caution before sending money across long distances and state or international borders, says Secretary of Banking and Securities Robin L. Wiessmann.

Senior citizens in Berks and Bucks counties were victimized and lost thousands of dollars to criminals who followed this script:

  • A grandparent receives a phone call and a young voice says, “Hi Grandma (or Grandpa), it’s me.” In a moment of confusion, the grandparent answers this greeting with something like “Yes, Michael (or Sharon). How are you?” Alternatively, a stranger purporting to be an attorney, law enforcement official, or friend may be on the line claiming a grandchild has been arrested or is in otherwise dire straits.
  • The scam artist tells the victim about an emergency – legal trouble in a foreign country, a medical emergency, or a lost/stolen wallet – and that grandma or grandpa can help by wiring money to a faraway city.
  • The caller will then swear “grandma” to secrecy (“mom and dad will get angry if they know about the trouble I’m in”) or will insist the grandparent’s action is required far too swiftly to allow time to contact other family members.
  • The victim then wires hundreds or even thousands of dollars to the faraway city. Sometimes the scam continues for days or weeks, with follow-up calls explaining that for whatever reason, the first wire transfer did not contain enough money and the “grandchild” needs more money wired immediately.

Wiessmann notes that once the wire transfer is completed, the money most likely cannot be recovered. She advises senior citizens to take the following steps to protect themselves from the Grandparent Scam:

  1. Call your relative back using a phone number known to you. If you receive this kind of phone call, contact the grandchild who is supposedly involved by reaching them through a known phone number or check it out with your grandchild’s parents before you decide to help someone claiming to be a family member or friend. If they are really your family, your grandchild will understand your need to verify the information you are being given.
  2. Ask the caller personal questions known only to family members. Engage the caller in conversation about issues that only family members would know involving information not easily obtainable. Ask about their birthdate or school they attend – or ask them what they got for Christmas from you last year, or ask them to give you the name of the pet cat or dog you have had for as long as they can remember.
  3. Don’t send money right now. Scammers will play on your emotions and push you to act quickly, but there are few faraway emergencies that require you to act immediately.
  4. Be cautious about wire transfers – that money cannot be recovered. Wire transfers are typically the preferred payment method of scam artists. Any request for a wire money transfer should be approached with extreme caution.
  5. Review personal information posted on social media. Be careful about personal information you post on social media sites like Facebook or Twitter and advise your family members to be cautious as well. Sometimes this is just enough personal information on social media that anyone can see to help a scam artist convince you that they know you.

If you believe you have fallen victim to this or any other scam, contact the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General (1-800-441-2555) or your local law enforcement.

Anyone can contact the Department of Banking and Securities at 1-800-PA-BANKS or 1-800-600-0007 to ask questions or file complaints about financial transactions, companies, or products. Members of the public are also invited to connect to the department through Facebook and Twitter, or subscribing to the department’s newsletter.

IIIT-Hyderabad Unveils Report on Demand for Expertise in Disruptive Technologies Among Technology Professionals

Uncategorized

 

The data was collated and analysed in association with TalentSprint

Summarizes program applicant data to highlight how technology professionals are gearing up to acquire the latest AI/ML expertise in Hyderabad

IIIT-Hyderabad in association with TalentSprint unveiled a report on Demand for Expertise in Disruptive Technologies among Technology Professionals. The report showcases trends among working professionals in Hyderabad on how they are gearing up to acquire expertise in the latest AI/ML technologies.

(Logo: http://mma.prnewswire.com/media/600789/IIIT_Hyderabad_Logo.jpg )
(Photo: http://mma.prnewswire.com/media/623426/Dr_PJ_Narayanan_IIIT_Hyderabad.jpg )

An analysis of applicant data reveals four key insights. First, professionals with more than five years in the industry are keen to upgrade themselves. Second, there is a rising demand for AIL/ML programs from professionals working in the IT services sector. Third, start-ups and small companies are embracing disruptive technologies rapidly. Fourth, women professionals and young professionals with less than five years of experience are not sufficiently aware of the need to acquire new expertise.

A recent NASSCOM report mentioned that many jobs which are available today may cease to exist in the next five years. Therefore, there is an immediate need to acquire new expertise in disruptive technologies.

According to Dr. P.J. Narayanan, Director, IIIT-Hyderabad, “The IT industry is perhaps seeing an unprecedented churn which was not anticipated earlier. As the industry faces renewed challenges, we need to create an ecosystem to promote and propagate new disruptive technologies such as AI/ML which are set to take center stage within the next five years.”

Wall Street Journal has predicted that Artificial Intelligence is the next Industrial Revolution. Thus, current technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep Learning are fundamentally altering the workings of software and services companies. Start-ups and leading technology companies are embracing AI/ML technologies to stay ahead of the curve. But there still remains a huge gap in terms of talent and expertise, largely because of a historical focus on cost arbitrage, rather than cutting-edge innovation.

Some interesting insights in the report are:

– 33% applicants have over 10 years of work experience. This suggests there is now an urgency among senior professionals to acquire expertise in emerging technologies.

– 73% applicants are from IT services companies. This suggests that disruptive technologies like AI/ ML are possibly already starting to impact these companies.

– 44% applicants are from start-ups and small companies. This suggests that these companies are early adopters of the AI/ML wave.

– Women and young professionals are still not adequately aware of the acute need to acquire expertise in disruptive technologies.

Dr. Santanu Paul, MD and CEO, TalentSprint said, “Analysis of the data validates facts that were known for a while. Today, mid-level professionals are at an important crossroad and vulnerable in the face of automation. They have understood that only new expertise will add new value to their careers. What is also important is that we encourage more women as well as young professionals to achieve mastery in AI/ML.”

IIIT-Hyderabad’s Foundations of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are being offered in association with TalentSprint. The first cohort of 400 professionals will commence their program on January 6, 2018.

Happy New Year President Trump

Uncategorized

Happy New Year Jerusalem – A four-storey digital billboard in Jerusalem at the Friends of Zion Heritage Center says it all. “Thank you President Trump you’re making Israel Greater”. No president in history has ever built such an alliance for the State of Israel and the Jewish people, and no president has courageously stood up for the State of Israel on the global stage as President Trump.

For over 700 million evangelical bible believers globally, Trump is an answer to a prayer.

In December, President Donald Trump received the Friends of Zion Award from Dr. Mike Evans in the oval office at an event attended by Vice President Pence, Senior Advisors Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump and faith leaders representing over 150 million Christians globally.

When Vice President Pence comes, he will have a ‘royal welcome’ with over 110 billboards, buses, and even camels.

Evans has been mobilizing his 31 million followers to influence world leader to stand with Israel and Jewish people and recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The objective is to have as many other states join Guatemala’s Evangelical President Morales and follow President Trump’s declaration and move their Embassies to Jerusalem.

The Friends of Zion Museum is involved in these historic declarations in many respects including a massive international campaign, which supports President Trump and President Morales for this historic recognition of Jerusalem.

Every world leader that says “yes” will receive the Friend of Zion Award said Mike Evans who gave the Friends of Zion award to President Donald Trump in the oval office this month.

President Trump’s historic declaration regarding Jerusalem takes its place as one of Israel’s historic millstones from the Balfour Declaration to President Truman’s acceptance of Israel into the family of nations. These heroes presented in the Friends of Zion Museum in Jerusalem tell the stories of characters throughout history that have stood by the Jewish people and helped establish the State of Israel. These non-Jewish Zionists are engraved in history and millions of people worldwide have learned of their heroism thanks to the groundbreaking work of Dr. Evans and the Friends of Zion Museum.

The Friends of Zion Heritage Center has become one of the central institutions in the State of Israelinfluencing the world and strengthening Israel’s relations globally while fortifying the pillars of the State of Israel. In addition to more than 31 million members globally the museum has hosted over 100 diplomats such as US Amb. David Freedman, President Rivlin, tens of thousands of Christian and Jewish leaders, NBA and NFL superstars, leading Hollywood actors and singers and is has become a must see site in Jerusalem.

Friends of Zion Museum, 20 Yosef Rivlin Street, Jerusalem. A reservation is recommended for museum visits.
