Magnises, McFarland and the Genesis of the New Millennial Model

Millennial’s share a couple of traits in common, most of the love to party and all carry credit cards to do so. It was this simple but quite noteworthy realization that catapulted Billy McFarland, the creator of the extremely popular tech firm, Spling, into the world of the black card social club market and from their to the creation of Magnises. Magnises might sound like a intergalactic space station but in all actuality it is a networking club for young and busy millennials who love to play as much as they work.

Visit this site for updates.

Magnises works like this: once you sign up you will be given a Maginses membership card, a little black square of metal which can be swiped at any Magnises affiliated business. Once the card is accepted the card holder will be given a sizable financial discount as well as instant VIP access. So, if for instance, you were to go to a concert venue that was affiliated with the Magnises network and displayed your black card, not only would you get a price cut on the concert itself, you would also be allowed into otherwise inaccessible areas, such as the backstage rooms and would be able to meet with the musicians, DJ’s and stage managers.   For added info read http://www.businessinsider.com/magnises-unrolls-new-lifestyle-perks-2016-2 

 

The tech entrepreneur behind it all, Billy McFarland, has explained in various public interviews that one of the main reasons that he believes Magnises has been so successful is the fact that many other similar businesses, like credit card companies such as American Express, really do not offer any benefits to millennials (especially those 22 to around 35 years of age), and those that are offered are pretty unappealing. However,based on Crunchbase.com,  Magnises is completely different, as it’s affiliated companies and venues are specifically tailored to appeal to the previously mentioned age range. So not only will Magnises help young millennials save money and have fun, it will also help them network at little to no cost. Thus far the company has been a smash hit success and things look as if they are only going to get better moving forward.  This according to Wikipedia.com.

Talk Fusion Wins Prestigious Technology Award

Talk Fusion is a company that has experienced a lot of growth. It has become an international success, and it is still a fairly new company. No one expects this type of high praise from a company that was started by a criminal justice major. It has become a very exciting company though. There are so many people that are talking about Talk Fusion and the way that this company is making communication easier. It didn’t happen overnight, but it is has quickly risen to the top with awards like the Communications Solutions Product of the year.

 

This is a huge honor for Bob Reina, the Talk Fusion CEO that simply wanted to send a video email to someone. He was told that he could not do this by his Internet service provider and that started a mission to get the Talk Fusion brand off and running. He has never looked back from that starting point. He knew that he didn’t have the same type of technology background that other leaders of technology companies had, but Reina knew that he was on to something. He knew that there were other people in the world that needed this type of technology. Bob also knew that people would come and patronize this type of application if he could get this off the ground and running. This is just an early example of the dedication that was in place to bring Talk Fusion into the light. All of this hard work would pay off. It is like there was all of this dedication to getting a single application to work properly, and Bob and his team did an excellent job of getting to this place.

 

What he would do is create teams that would be responsible for bringing video email and a host of other products for the mainstream. What appears to be the common thread between all of the products is the dedication that is put into making quality applications. That is why Talk Fusion has been able to win an abundant number of awards since the time of inception.

Kyle Bass Has Some Fishy Predictions

There is more fishy about financier Kyle Bass than a mispronunciation of his last name. The man has been vacillating strongly about China over the last month or two. He came out guns blazing in October of 2015, when he predicted by the end of 2016, China would experience financial collapse so terrible, it would diminish America’s own economy by something like twenty percent. In April, Bass was saying there was a “forty to fifty percent” likelihood China’s debt bubble would deflate by the end of 2016, further emphasizing that he fully expected a financial crisis of small variety–not a “Lehman Brothers Moment”–within the next two to three years. Then, a recent Bloomberg article reported Bass saying that it wouldn’t be “Armageddon”, and that if China could “materially” apply devaluation to her currency, it might be a historically exciting time to invest in Asia.

When taken in aggregate, Bass’ noises over the last nine to ten months amount to: “I think China might do bad, but they might not.” This is nothing worth saying, but the way Bass has said this nothing invites the perceiver to have a negative outlook toward China’s future, and thus curtail their own financial investments.

It seems there are three reasons Bass could be doing this. Firstly, he could have his own investments, and be discouraging competition. Secondly, he could be legitimately concerned about fallout from a market poised to implode. Thirdly, he could have an imperative to discourage Chinese investment in order that the collapse may be artificially facilitated, validating whatever investments he’s made prompting such media rhetoric as unstable as Bass’s.

The third alternative is the most likely in light of Bass’ career choices, which include a “front” organization posing as humanitarian that only acts as a means of dropping stock value so Bass can short-sell (CAD, the Coalition for Affordable Drugs), and close involvement with a socialist despot. Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is either terrible with money, or trying to destroy Argentina’s economy. She’s defaulted the country twice in only thirteen years, and Bass has never criticized her economic choices, suggesting complicity. These points were originally reported by UsefulStooges, who have written extensively about Kyle Bass.

Everything You Need To Know About Adam Sender

Not many business people can be like Adam Sender. This man is a renowned hedge-fund maverick who also loves art. Adam who reportedly owns more than 700 pieces of art has been known to mount an exhibition at his private residence in Miami. A business man will always be a creative person, and it does not surprise many that this man who has been successful as a trader has been investing his profits by buying arts. Sender has been collecting art since the late 1990’s. His collection involves a lot of artwork that had increased a lot of value-wise compared to when he bought them.

Sender who has in the past been embroiled in a lawsuit by a Toronto-based firm, says that he is still collecting artwork. He is very keen to gather artwork by new artists and especially those that not very many people know of. However, he is very particular about only dealing with artists who have a bit of experience.

He rarely works with those who are still in school or those who have just finished. Experience with trading has taught this man to work with only artists that are experienced. Asked about what triggered him to think about the unique art exhibition, he casually says that he loves experimenting with new ideas as long as they make him money.

Art to Sender is more of an addiction and not a hobby. Everywhere he spends time including his office has a lot of art hanging on the walls. This 42-year-old man says he just can not stop acquiring art. In the pop festival that he planned, he says that he intended to create a fictional scenario in which his collection has grown so enormous such that he has been forced to pack up and move from his own house. Literally, the art has taken over his home.

His curator Ms. Aibel, who was involved a lot in the festival installed over 70 pieces of artwork in the 5,000 square feet house. She did a very thorough job fitting the pieces in the most strategic positions around the house. Pieces with sexy or provocative themes were strategically placed in places like the bathroom or the bedrooms.

Sender who has in the past loaned his pieces to institutions like Los Angeles County Museum of Art always wanted to have a festival to exhibit them. He has considered buying a unused church space and turn it into a private gallery. He, however, changed his mind and decided go the phenomenal way. The event that was a huge success has set him on an entirely new level when matters related to art ownership and collection are involved. Once a businessman always a businessman.

The Art Collection of Adam Sender

Former hedge fund manager and art collector Adam Sender has been collecting art since 1988. At the age of 45, he has pieced together over 800 paintings by hundreds top contemporary artists. Today, he is planning to sell 400 pieces of these collections. Last year, Sender closed a huge hedge company that he founded, Exis Capital Management. His reason for closing the company is to get ample time to sell art.

Sender says he exclusively bought the pieces from artists who have had an extensive experience in the art industry. His collection features a number of past movements such as conceptual art and appropriation. With the help of Todd Levin, his art adviser, Sender worked very hard to find pieces that were intellectually stimulating and visually appealing and ultimately succeeded despite the common perception that doing so is an almost impossible endeavor. Due to Sender’s persistence and passion for art, he managed to find art pieces that perfectly fit the criteria. Also, the collection features pieces by renowned female artists thanks to the rapport that he has with the leading female artists including Jenny Holzer, Barbara Kruger, and Mickalane Thomas.

Sender planned to have a historic art exhibition in one of his houses in Miami Beach this year. He says he wants to use the event to show the public the collection, instead of hiding it, to create one of the best learning opportunities in the region. Sender, unlike other collectors, has actively been sharing his collection with the public. That sets him apart from the crowd. During the exhibition, Sender intends to feature pieces that were chosen by the curator Sarah Aibel that include arts from Chris Ofili, Rasid Johnson, and Richard Prince.

Adam Sender’s resolve to continue sharing the collection reveals his appreciation that the collection has turned into the incredible collection that it is today. When he started collecting art, he had no idea that the efforts would result in a collection that can be loaned or donated to museums. He has stated that he will donate some of the pieces. The avid art collector says he is proud of the collections. But he is also proud of what he bought. He intends to continue buying more pieces of contemporary art.

Sender owns an art piece worth one to three million dollars called Untitled #93 (1981) by Cindy Sherman. His career as a hedge manager enabled him to raise most of the money that helped him purchase the art. With profits from the trading desk, the passionate art collector was an early buyer of Contemporary Art. At the same time, Sender was an early mover when it came to selling, and now that he has closed his hedge fund he is prepared to liquidate his position in art as well.

How Adam Sender Grew His Art Collection to $70 Million Dollars

If you were to research Adam Sender back only a decade ago, you would have discovered that he was one of the more successful hedge fund managers around. He was running the fund that generated a very nice profit for himself and for his clients, many who took their money and put it right back to work for them. Sender had his eye on a bigger prize however, wanting to take those profits and explode their growth in a reasonable amount of time. The story of what Sender did next may never be duplicated again because of the sheer volume of work and profits he achieved in that short period of time.

Sender decided to take some of his profits from the hedge fund and buy Contemporary art. When he began shopping around, it became quite evident that he was not doing to have as easy a go at it like he first thought. He found out that the masters were commanding millions of dollars for their best pieces, and he realized he could not make much profit if he was going to focus he time on buying from Warhol and other great artists. This is where the story goes from one extreme to another, as Sender realizes he has to find another way if he is going to really make some serious money.

The point that changed everything for Adam Sender happened when he began considering looking at the best works of some artists who were right there on the verge of being the next big artists. These lesser-known artists were making spectacular works that were just not getting the attention of the bigger artists. Sender saw a great opportunity here because their paintings would eventually go up in value despite what the market was dictating at any given time. Sender could gobble up those pieces for $100,000 on average and just wait to see when the market corrected itself.

To prove his theory, Sender (LinkedIn)
decided to sell off 40 of the pieces in 2006 at auction. he was correct with his assumption, as the pieces sold for $20 million dollars. He put his plan into high gear and continued to buy up these paintings when he could. Today Sender has a collection of 400 pieces from a wide variety of more than 120 different artists. He contacted Sotheby’s auction house to sell off the entire collection as he is making his departure from collecting art as he finally did with his hedge fund. The auction house is expecting that the entire lot of paintings will take the better part of a year and a half to sell, but in the end Adam Sender will walk away having sold them all for $70 million dollars.

Hip-Hop Meets Broadway

 

Russell Simmons, the highly successful hip-hop and rap mogul, plans to bring a hip-hop musical called The Scenario to Broadway. A sort of rock of ages for hip-hop, according to Simmons, the musical will follow the history of this highly influential American musical genre. Hip-hop music on Broadway, although atypical, has drawn crowds. The current run of Hamilton, which uses hip-hop music to tell the story of America’s first Secretary of the Treasury Department, West-Indian born Alexander Hamilton has sold out before its July 2015 debut. 
Not all hip-hop based musicals have been successful, however. Holler if You Hear Me, a musical about late rapper Tupac Shakur closed last year, just making it out of previews said Ivan Ong. The musical that Simmons envisions will have both feel-good moments as well as social commentary. It will include 50% musical and 50% story-telling elements.
The initial idea for the show began when Simmons was invited to see Rock of Ages by members of the production company Big Block. He thought that it made sense to create a similar show for hip-hop.
Although the price of Broadway tickets is cost-prohibitive for many, Simmons feels that lots of people will still be able to see it. He also has already been approached about making a movie about the musical, which may allow it to be seen by more people. The Scenario is due to debut in late 2016.
