Honest And Ethical, Why Aloha Construction Won The BBB Torch Award

The Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics is a prestigious award that is tough to get, as their are six specific criteria that companies must meet to get it. The Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics was started in 1996 to honor companies that demonstrate leadership, social responsibility, following of best practices, and hold extremely high standards when it comes to the their organizational ethics.

In 2017, a panel of 15 judges, representing the BBB that served Chicago and the Northern Illinois region, awarded this prestigious Torch Award to Aloha Construction because of the company’s decade-long history of quality and ethical work within the region and their focus on both their employees and the community that they work within. This award topped off an already impressive year for the company, as 2017 also had them pass an important milestone as they completed their 200,000th roofing job that year as well.

The award was well deserved, as Aloha Construction has a reputation of being a forward-thinking, ethical company. Internally, the company ensures that their employees are treated well. With competitive pay and benefits, they make sure their employees stay, offering them stability, and also, every year, Aloha Construction rewards their highest-performing employees with an all-expenses paid trip to Maui, Hawaii. Externally, the company not only makes sure that they treat their customers well, but also that they treat their community well.

On top of a 10-year Craftsmanship warranty for all their customers, that ensures that any damages will be paid for free of charge during that time, Aloha Construction also offers an annual free roof inspection that ensures that their customers know of any possible damages and that they’ll be able to get that damage repaired before the warranty runs out.

Beyond just supporting their customers, the company also supports the community by sponsoring multiple sports teams, have hosted a local Boys and Girl Club for their Youth of the Month event, and have done events such as a toy shopping spree for a family and a Chicago Bulls VIP ticket giveaway that resulted in a local child with a congenital heart disease, and his friends, being given a great opportunity to see the Bulls play.

Aloha Construction believes in not only being honest with both their employees and their customers, but also believes in helping the community. This led them to winning this prestigious award at the end of last year, and will most likely lead them to more accolades in the future.

Jed McCaleb makes World Altering Prediction

Jed McCaleb is experienced in a variety of different industries in the tech community. He has either created or worked on a variety of innovative technology for the internet and financial industries. With eDonkey, he created a system that made downloading a breeze. Mt. Gox, another one of his creations became the world’s first bitcoin exchange network. Now he is the CTO of Stellar, a blockchain company that McCaleb co-founded alongside Joyce Kim.

 

Stellar enables its customers to conduct international transactions at a cheaper cost than all competition. Stellar is able to accomplish this because of its decentralized structure. All of the transactions completed through Stellar are recorded on the machines of thousands of other users instead of a centralized server. This creates the safest, most secure method of transaction recording in history. Blockchain technology doesn’t only make transferring cash across borders cheaper, it does it faster than any other method available today.

 

This is the reason Jed McCaleb believes the future of cryptocurrency and financial institutions will one day be interwoven. Jed McCaleb made this bold prediction recently in an interview. McCaleb is able to made such an exciting prediction because he has been personally involved in the blockchain industry for years. Stellar was founded in 2014 and has grown exponentially since then.

“There will be a universal payments network that will operate,” Jed McCaleb prophesied in the interview. McCaleb says this system will utilize a public ledger and be able to work with cash from all over the world like euros, dollars, and more.

 

Stellar has been working for the past 4 years to accomplish this vision. Stellar is already implemented in IBM, one of the world’s biggest computer companies, but it is also implemented in countries all over Asia. Stellar has enabled these countries to participate in transactions that were previously impossible. People in these countries who were without financial services now even have access to things most people take for granted like savings and checking accounts.

<strong>How Hussain Sajwani Become one of the President’s Best Friends</strong>

Damac Properties are one of Dubai’s most accomplished business conglomerates. The UAE Company specializes in high-end luxury properties suited to the endless number of American millionaires headed to this remarkable Middle East market. The CEO and President of this leading UAE real estate firm is an influential billionaire arab by the name, Hussain Sajwani. Hussain, unlike most of his billionaire peers in Dubai, didn’t inherit his vast fortune. No, Sajwani build his real estate empire from the ground up. Here’s a snapshot that beatifuly captures the long and tumultuous journey that Hussain Sajwani has taken over the last 20 years.

 

Mediocrity Kills

 

According to The National.ae website, Hussain Sajwani began his illustrious investing quest back in 1991. The young visionary having returned home found what he terms as a mediocre job with the nation’s leading gas and oil company, GASCO. His stint as an oil marketer and broker with the reputable Gas and Oil Company didn’t last long. His curiosity combined with creativity led him to start a private catering company. The young Hussain was fortunate to land a lucrative and long-term contract tender to provide the US Special Forces troops with food and other essential basics.

 

Building Skills & Experiences

 

Working with the US army had a profound impact on the life of Hussain Sajwani. The US army retained the catering services offered by Hussain even after the First Gulf War ended. The UAE born investor would get the opportunity to tour the world with the marching US forces every country they went to. Hussain confesses that the entire experience played a pivotal role to his current success as a strategist and investor.

 

Hussain’s Limelight Moment

 

Before the 2017 inauguration of President Trump, very few people outside the elite class and the billionaires had ever heard of Hussain Sajwani. All that changed, however, when the prominent Dubai property magnate got a special invite to grace the inaugural ball held at President Donald’s Mar-A-Lago mansion in Florida, US.

 

In his maiden speech as the newly elected president of the USA, Donald Trump paid a special tribute in honor and recognition of the presence of his old-time buddy, Hussain Sajwani and his beautiful and loving family. It’s easy to see how these guys could be best buds if you look at the joint investments, in Dubai and elsewhere, they hold. Learn more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJxJrIkRTzk

George Soros Takes On The Role Of Civil Rights Activist

Depending on your position on the political spectrum the name George Soros will bring about a series of very different reactions to his name; for financial experts Soros is perhaps the most successful hedge fund manager of all time seeing record-breaking growth across a number of decades, but for others he is seen as the top donor to Democratic and liberal causes in the world. Soros himself has developed his own network of charitable groups, the Open Society Foundations that have recently been identified as a key player in the Ferguson protests of the Summer of 2014. Although he may not have personally set foot on the streets of Ferguson, George Soros has been at the heart of the work completed by a number of groups back through Open Society Foundations funding in Ferguson, Missouri. Visit Project Syndicate to learn more about George.

Ferguson became a flashpoint for local community leaders and activists when African American Michael Brown was shot by a law enforcement officer despite not being involved in a crime. Initially, the shooting of Michael Brown sparked a few localized protests before a number of major civil rights groups seized upon the event and turned it into an international cause celebre. The result of George Soros backed groups, such as the Drug Policy Alliance and the Advancement Project, arriving in Ferguson was a more organized series of protests taking place under the glare of international new media organizations publicizing the efforts of activists to draw attention to institutional racism; in total, it is reported by The Washington Times that around $33 million in funding is provided annually by the George Soros-funded Open Society Foundations to groups assisting in the protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

George Soros has been looking to change the way the world works together since he left his home nation of Hungary as a 17-year-old refugee in 1947. Now in his 80’s, George Soros has continued to look to educate the people of the world about democracy and freedom, a cause Soros believes his own personal success as a hedge fund manager has afforded him. Although he has always been known in financial circles as a genius hedge fund manager the U.S. citizen became a globally recognized name when he took on a major role in the 1992 devaluation of the British currency on a day that became known as “Black Wednesday”; Soros is estimated to have made over $1 billion in a single day through the devaluation of the British Pound and sealed his reputation as the world’s top investment specialist. In 2017, George Soros remains an active trader and supporter of many different liberal causes, which Politico reports include advancing the cause of equal rights for women through his support of U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Soros Fund Management Chief Investment Officer Dawn Fitzpatrick.
