Best Ski Resorts to Take Your Family on Vacation

Lake Tahoe is one of the most scenic sites in the United States; termed by locals as a pristine jewel of nature, this 1645 ft deep, 22 miles long, and 12 miles wide beauty with 72 miles of shoreline is located at the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Lake Tahoe is actually the most popular ski destination in the United States on squawalpine.com. Its reputation precedes it making it clinch the top position for the third time consecutively on the Orbit Insider Index in January 2010. Squaw Valley in Lake Tahoe also happens to be the home of the 1960 Winter Olympics.

Skiing in Lake Tahoe is one of the most exhilarating experiences one could ever get. Not only is the history amazing, the people in Squaw Valley are very friendly and the scenery is just but magnificent. The expansive terrain allows skiers of all abilities to create unforgettable memories as they experience the wide variety of skiable goods at Squaw Valley. The skiing experience is spiced up by a variety of shopping and dining experiences in the village with the likes of Le Chamois or the Mamasake.

Lake Tahoe harbors two spectacular ski resorts which have held a long time connection over the years; one can view either Alpine Meadows from Squaw Valley mountaintop and vice versa. However, to ski each mountain, one had to drive from one parking lot to the other, but this is no longer the case nowadays as Squaw Valley Ski Holdings announced their plans to build a gondola that would link the two. Are you looking forward to visiting Lake Tahoe? Allow me to indulge you in a brief overview of three of the top notch ski resorts for your vacation.

Heavenly Mountain Resort
It is an expansive complex of lifts, terrain, trails and snowmaking that makes up the region’s largest ski area with the highest elevation of 10000 ft and the longest vertical drop of 3500 ft. Heavenly is unmatched at its beauty with about 360 inches of snow cover and vastness of 4800 skiable acres.

The resort features 42 lifts, 270 trails and nearly 60 restaurants bars, boutiques and galleries collectively. It is known to have the longest ski and snowboard season due to its 450-inch snow cover thereby establishing it as a key skiing destination. In 2014-2015, the resort received the following awards:
– CNN: Best Place to Ski on Earth

White Shark Media Saved My New Business

My husband and I started an antique restoration business. I know that the online community is one of the best ways to maximize sales. However, we were not totally sure of how to handle our advertising. We discovered White Shark Media to help us with our start-up. Wow, we are so glad that we found them when we did.

The video below is shows WSM review:

We were assigned a representative that handled all of our needs. She was always just a phone call away. I felt important and like our business was important, two things that I really appreciated. I needed a company who could be knowledgeable and diligence when it came to handling our account, and they delivered on both counts.

We checked out many firms in the area, but when it came to price and reputation, White Shark Media Review team won our vote.

The first month was uneventful, as they said it would be. However, their campaign management allowed us to start seeing a profit by month two. They give a risk-free evaluation and let you know up front what they can and cannot do for you.

It was good to hear their honesty because I had heard so many unrealistic plans from other competitors. White Shark Media is very transparent. Learn more about White Shark Media Review: http://www.whitesharkmedia.com/testimonials/

They don’t claim to have all the answers and will even admit when they fail. Recently, their owner did an article talking about bumps in the road and what they did to fix them. They really listen to their customers.

Another thing that I really love about this company is their internet blog. I go to their website and read it often. I feel good knowing that they are in control, but I also like the tips and tricks that can help us for the future. AdWords can be very confusing if you do not know how to handle it, so we needed all the professional help we can get.

It’s been more than six months since our business opened and we signed on with White Shark Media. I don’t know much about SEO ranking, AdWords, and all the other famous words that are needed for a successful internet business, but what I do know is that we are seeing a profit.

My sales are more than we estimated and we are seeing a return on our investment. I highly recommend them for anyone who needs help with their internet business.

Securus Technologies Issues Press Releases That Highlight Global Tel Link Wrongdoings

The Louisiana Public Service Commission (LPSC) has just released a report outlining the results of an investigation against inmate telecommunications supplier Global Tel Link (GTL).

The report highlighted a number of serious violations including integrity breaches, poor service and fraud against hundreds, if not thousands of customers.

In response to the report, Securus Technologies CEO Rick Smith has issued a statement saying that his company plans on taking the reports and issue them in a series of press releases. Smith says it is his goal to shame GTL into bringing up its standards and providing the services it is getting paid for.

Securus is a Dallas-based firm that also provides prison system technology such as telecommunications and safety.

GTL has exclusively provided service to the Louisiana Department of Corrections for several years. Over time, the LPSC has received thousands of complaints against the company for over-billing and many other infractions.

“We are here to provide a service. Ripping customers off is not part of that plan,” said Smith. Many prison officials say that GTL has broken the public trust and put all parties involved in a very bad light.

GTL has operated unchecked for a number of years, and very little has been done to encourage them to change their ways.

Some of the worst violations include “clock advancing,” which is adding time to the clock to make it seem as though the call is longer that it actually is. It is also alleged that GTL engaged in unlawful double-billing, adding on services that were not asked for, ignoring rate caps and charging customers outrageous fees and other ways to unlawfully overcharge calls.

GTL has failed to respond to the allegations.

Although the report was dated in 1998, Smith says he’s seen enough evidence to believe that the violations are still being practiced to this date.

This is a business. And like any other business, there are rules and regulations,” said Smith. We should all be held accountable when we cross the line.”

Kyle Bass Manipulates For Money

It’s a lot easier to gamble for the cheater. That goes the same for investment banking, which has a lot of similarities to gambling. The thing is, its complication and abstractness make it eminently possible to facilitate market engineering which goes unremarked for sometimes decades. This very truth is what brought Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into the market-crashing prominence they held before 2008. Millions were approved for loans they had no way of paying, and then those loans were traded as though they were worthy investments on Wall Street. By 2008, this faulty equivocation practice resulted in a flimsy house of cards which quickly came tumbling down.

One of the first banks to go was Bear-Stearns. Kyle Bass had worked for them, until he didn’t, whereupon he dropped an inside tip to a prominent Wall Street journalist. The end result was a stock drop for Bear-Stearns so severe J.P. Morgan-Chase had to buy them out by the end of the week. Meanwhile, Bass short-sold his sub-prime holdings at the right time before the financial collapse and made a fortune which also garnered him substantial media attention and a permanent media soapbox.

Using this soapbox, Bass has managed to create CAD, the Coalition for Affordable Drugs, which undercuts pharmaceuticals so hard their stock loses value, again allowing him to short-sell holdings and make millions.

Bass is also involved with Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. This woman is a socialist, and has defaulted Argentina twice. The timeframe? Only thirteen years. Bass never criticizes her.

With such facts in mind, a lens is constructed through which to view Bass’ remarks about China since October, 2015, when he began predicting collapse on an economic basis. Bass points to China’s expanding debt bubble for proof, and says within the next two to three years, a collapse will come. He has predicted such a collapse may happen with a forty to fifty percent likelihood by the end of 2016–which is less than binary, so it’s kind of a worthless prediction. One might as well flip a coin. It seems Bass is trying to scare investors, because in a recent Bloomberg article, it’s reported that he has said a material devaluation of Chinese currency would make the market historically lucrative for investment–which smells like a backpedal if ever their were one.

Online Reputation Management: Keeping A Good Name

 

When you own a business today, you are likely to be involved on social media and/or have your own company website. Whether you offer a service or product, people tend to rely on these sites for information from customers or clients who are either satisfied or unsatisfied with their purchases. Its important for these companies to manage their sites to ensure that only positive feedback is being featured about their business, because a bad comment can make or break a business.

In a recent article, it discussed the reasons why online reputation management is key to success in a business. Most of your sales are truly riding on customer feedback. What people say online tends to spread like wildfire, especially on social media sites like Facebook. If for some reason, a bad comment goes viral about your business you may have little time to bounce back from it. Redeeming yourself can be hard when so many people are relying on those comments as reasons to not use your products or services. A lot of times, competitors will use this opportunity to gain people from your original clientele also which can cause you to lose even more business. At this point, there is nothing you can do to stop people from saying what they wish to about your company. But you can fix bad search results.

You have to keep people coming back and new customers intrigued by the positive comments of their peers. Many people rely on the experiences of others before making any decisions on buying products or services, and social media is infamous for promoting or advising against businesses.
