— Nicky Smith, President, DigitalPhone.io

GREENSBORO, NC, US, April 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Windstream, which filed for bankruptcy in February, has noted that it will cut approximately 15 percent of its channel partners. Those affected will immediately see their commissions stop, regardless of how it negatively impacts their operations, cash flow projections, or reputations.

Apparently, Windstream has other items on the agenda at the moment than supporting channel partners who have been driving revenues and customers to the telecommunications company for years. According to some current and ex-employees posting at TheLayoffs.com, one of these priorities is carrying out a “stealth layoff program” that involves handing out a small number of pink slips over a long period of time, in order to avoid a public relations blowback.

Hard Money Expert Witness: Trust Deed Investments

Answers to questions about trust deed investments and investing IRA funds

Yes. You can use your IRA funds for trust deed investments.”

— Joffrey Long

PORTER RANCH, CA, U.S.A., April 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — (This is part 1 of a 2 part article. Part 2 will be released on April 26, 2019.)

Private investors in hard money loans often have questions. Or – they’re not sure what question to ask. Here are some of the common questions I’ve received, in years of speaking with trust deed investors. (These procedures / answers do not apply to all trust deed investments.)

What happens next?

When you consider first trust deed investments, you’ve been provided with a “Summary of Loan Information.” (“the summary”) If you review the summary and decide to look at additional information, I’ll provide you with items such as the California Department of Real Estate form 851B, (required disclosure form) my own “narrative disclosure,” and depending on the loan involved, documents including a title report or title insurance policy, an appraisal, and certain borrower information.

After reviewing that information, you might contact me with additional questions. If you decide to proceed with the investment, you would sign the disclosures and return them to us. Please remember that until you have received, reviewed, and agreed to all the disclosures and terms of the investment, you are not obligated to invest or send money, and you shouldn’t.

How do I transfer funds to you for the investment?

After signing the disclosures, you would issue a check in the amount you’re investing, payable to Southwest Bancorp. (Or if it is an IRA investment, you would complete a “purchase authorization,” to your IRA custodian would transfer funds to us. We can complete the form for you, if you prefer.)

Upon receipt of your funds, a notarized assignment of trust deed, assigning an interest in the deed of trust, from Southwest Bancorp (the present owner of the loan) to you, is recorded in the County Recorder where the property is located. A copy of the recorded assignment is provided to you. The California Department of Real Estate requires that we send the assignment of trust deed for recording within 10 days of receipt of your funds. Rather than wait 10 days, we record the assignment first, and do not deposit your check until we provide you with evidence of the recording and the County Recorder’s document number for the recording of the assignment into your name.

Can I put the investment in the name of my trust?

Yes. Your trust, or other legitimate entity, such as your LLC or your corporation can be the investor. We just need a tax ID # for that entity to report the annual interest. (You may wish to speak with your legal advisor regarding the proper vesting and placement of assets into the name of your trust.)

Can I invest IRA Funds into trust deeds?

Yes. You can use your IRA funds for trust deed investments. Some of your IRA funds are transferred to an “IRA Custodian,” and are then invested in trust deeds according to your instructions. Monthly payments are sent to the IRA Custodian, then go into your IRA account.

What happens now? Will I get monthly payments?

Each month, when we receive the borrower’s payment, it is deposited into our trust account. We allow 14 days for possible returned borrower checks, then we issue individual checks to each investor. Loan servicing software specifically designed for trust deed investments is used to process loan payments and investor checks. It is also the software program used to prepare loan documents for new loans.

There are seven additional answers, all covered in part II of this article. Please watch for Part II, which will be released on April 26, 2019.

Nothing in this document represents a standard of care, or normal required practices in the industry. Primarily, it describes the procedures used at our company for certain investments in certain loans. We do not represent that we follow these same procedures for every loan or every investment. The circumstances or correct procedures may vary depending on type of investment, the company providing the investment, or the investor circumstances or how investor capital is raised. Before considering a trust deed investment, consult with qualified advisors, and obtain written disclosures. Southwest Bancorp is a licensed real estate broker and generally funds and closes loans with its own money, acting primarily as a wholesale hard money lender. Then it offers/re-sells the loans, or interests in the loans to private investors.

Wind Energy Industry Has Lost $5.2 billion to Avoidable IP Infringements & Trade Secret Theft

BP Wind Energy Patent Infringement Liability Exposure

BP Wind Energy Patent Infringement Liability Exposure

Since 1995 the wind energy industry has suffered more than US$5.2 billion in commercial losses associated with unmitigated intellectual property (IP) risks.

HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, April 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — These losses come in the form of legal damages, to the tune of US$165 million, but the bigger chunk is directly related to the other commercial impacts associated with an intellectual property dispute. These include blocking of product sales, denial of market access, and the loss of revenue from aftermarket part sales for those non-existent product sales as well as the accompanying service contracts which are becoming increasingly lucrative as assets age.

Companies certainly have a right to enforce their IP rights, but when those IP rights are used to exclude competition from markets, it eliminates choice for project developers when it comes to supply contracts. This weaponization of intellectual property rights has cost companies more than US$3.65 billion in product sales, US$386 million in aftermarket part sales & US$1.02 billion in services revenue.

The industry is still at risk, with potentially billions in patent infringement liability still not formally mitigated during a project finance due diligence. For instance, the industry would have faced a total of more than US$11 billion if Enercon had been more successful with their enforcement licensing activities against Vestas and Siemens Gamesa.

Beyond those avoided costs, every single wind energy project which goes through a project finance diligence almost never takes into account the commercial impacts to the project developers and asset owners which are contractually left very murky and favorable to the supply companies resulting from clauses related to intellectual property risk. This is to the detriment of the developer, financier and insurance carrier in case a dispute between two equipment suppliers erupts.

Although the frequency of this occurring may be considered “rare” versus other risks which are routinely underwritten, the price tag for being on the wrong side of an intellectual property infringement can be substantial.

Famously, Enercon GmbH not only sued Gamesa for patent infringement liability in Spain on a wind turbine control patent, but they also sent demand letters to the asset owners of the Gamesa products they believed to infringe their patent. Those asset owners were contractually liable for some of the damages, because they did not have full indemnity from patent infringement liability in the turbine supply contract.

Recommendations to safeguard developers / owners from IP infringement risks include:

1 – Either during the request for proposals (RFP) or the turbine supply agreement (TSA) negotiations, full indemnity from patent infringement liability should be mandated.

2 – Just like the requirement for a turbine supplier to carry property & casualty insurance, making patent infringement indemnity insurance coverage mandatory can also be specified in the RFP or TSA negotiations.

3 – Whether full indemnity is provided or whether insurance is obtained, an independent validation of patent infringement risk position is possible. This data can be provided to developers / owners as well as the insurance providers during the TSA negotiation.

The consequences of this could be far-reaching because even if an injunction and a stop on production is not implemented as a result of the trial, owners could still see lost production due to a swap out of wind turbine controls or hardware which is found to infringe patents. Additional financial liabilities can pile up for every day which an infringement turbine is operated until / unless the software or hardware swap out is made.

In many cases the risk mitigation protocol used by most turbine suppliers is likely inadequate. Prior to a product launch into a new market, some proactive turbine suppliers conduct a freedom to operate review in order to ensure they and their prospective customers will have no risk of patent infringement liability.

As a result, most turbine suppliers feel justified in their non-infringement position already and feel no additional work is required. Unfortunately, there are some turbine suppliers either are resource constrained or simply do not take the time to engage in this type of risk mitigation.

There is an opportunity for proactive companies to undergo an independent IP review and risk mitigation as part of the project finance diligence. Those companies who have proactively partnered with IntelStor and our predecessor namesake, Totaro & Associates, and have undertaken an independent IP review, went on to save more than US$300 million in royalty costs avoided since 2010.

The implications of patent infringement can be substantial but this risk can indeed be quantified and mitigated. Companies must be more proactive to deal with IP risk during project diligence.

IntelStor's IP Prism™ Risk calculators can determine the total cost to a single project developer or asset owner for more than 1,200 specific makes and models of wind turbines.

Prolift Injuries: Years Later…Pudendal and Obturator Neuralgia

Dr. Greg Vigna

Prolift injuries have led to thousands of women suffering from chronic neuromuscular problems including pudendal and obturator neuralgia.

I have concerns that women with the Prolift and the transobturator sling devices have had severe pain for years from direct muscle damage and are not being diagnosed and treated appropriately.”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pelvic organ prolapse was surgically treated in thousands of women with the Prolift device marketed by Ethicon, Inc. despite a lack of long-term follow up studies regarding safety. The results are foreseeable as now there are thousands of women with chronic neuromuscular problems including hip adductor myalgia (groin pain), pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, and complex regional pain syndrome.

The Prolift device used for anterior compartment repair is different compared to the Pinnacle and Uphold devices produced by Boston Scientific, Inc. used for anterior prolapse in that the four arms of the Prolift that anchor the device are placed through the obturator membrane and pierce the hip adductor muscles and the obturator internis muscle. This will cause chronic hip adductor myalgia, but overtime may cause catastrophic pain syndrome from nerve damage. The Boston Scientific devices Pinnacle and Uphold device implant directly into the sacrospinous ligament which tend to cause acute or direct pudendal nerve injuries because the pudendal nerve runs adjacent to or behind the sacrospinous ligament.

Dr. Greg Vigna, practicing physician, national pharmaceutical injury attorney, and damages expert states, "The clinical outcomes from the Prolift is foreseeable by their design and have played out in the literature in that there may be anatomic success with supporting prolapsed organs. The neuromuscular injuries are numerous."

Dr. Marc Possover, world authority on mesh related neurological complications in Europe, in 2011 published an observational study of 95 patients who presented to him with neurological issues from prolapse surgery. Five patients presented with pudendal neuralgia from pudendal nerve injury from transobturator slings and these patients presented with delayed pain, months to years after implantation. Similarly, complications from the Prolift were related to injuries to the sacral plexus and/or obturator nerve, along with pudendal pain, with 11 out of 13 patients with delayed onset of pain.

Dr. Vigna states, “I have concerns that women with the Prolift and the transobturator sling devices have had severe pain in the hips related to hip adductor myalgia for years from direct muscle damage and when their pain changes as the device contracts pulling on nerves causing injuries such as pudendal neuralgia and/or obturator neuralgia, they are not being diagnosed and treated appropriately. Future care for hip adductor myalgia is oral medications and physical therapy, in contrast to nerve related complications that require complete mesh removal, decompressive nerve surgery, neuromodulation, physical therapy, and Botox."

TRIQ TAZ-ZWEJT, SAN GWANN, MALTA, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tokenomica has launched its new Digital Assets Exchange, which combines the best features of both centralized and decentralized exchanges, making it the first decentralized trading platform operating in a fully regulated environment. The product includes: decentralized execution and settlement; centralized client acceptance; centralized asset quality assurance and centralized custody of fiat; and hybrid custody of crypto assets.

The Digital Assets Exchange uses the latest advancements based on proven technology, Waves DEX, and centered on Smart Accounts and Smart Assets. Waves DEX has proven itself to be one of the safest exchanges on the market. We have taken the technology and made several important improvements.

“It's ironic that, while one of the key advantages of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain as the underlying technology behind them is decentralization, most of crypto exchanges on the market are completely centralized. Decentralized exchanges solve most of the problems of traditional exchanges. Lack of relevant regulation is the main stumbling block for their emergence ”, said Artem Tolkachev, Tokenomica’s Founder and CEO. “When we first thought about building our own exchange, we wanted to combine the best that both centralized and decentralized exchanges provide. We are very proud to be the first ones to launch a DEX within a regulated environment on the market”.

Sabra Dipping Co. sued over wage and hour violations

Lawsuit: Management discriminated against an employee over her disability, religion

… Sabra should be held accountable for their unfair and unscrupulous employment practices, which aim to take advantage of employees who fear they’ll be fired or be subjected to retaliation…”

— Attorney Kamran Shahabi

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hummus maker Sabra Dipping Co. regularly violated wage and hour laws and retaliated against a woman who complained of discrimination based on her age, disability and religion, according to a new lawsuit.

The lawsuit seeks class action status for hundreds of factory employees, accusing Sabra Dipping Co. with failing to correctly pay workers for time worked and overtime; making employees skip, shorten, or be on-call during meal and break periods without paying the state-mandated premium for doing so; and failing to keep accurate records of hours worked and earned vacation hours.

A Sabra manager named in the lawsuit is accused of harassment, discrimination and retaliation in the January 2018 wrongful firing of Laura Ochoa. First hired in July 2014, Ochoa developed respiratory problems in 2016 and 2017, requiring hospitalization. Ochoa’s doctor determined that her illness stemmed from using non-OSHA compliant masks issued by Sabra for the factory workers, according to the lawsuit.

When she alerted manager Sergio Sandoval, he told her she was lucky to have work, then reassigned her to a refrigerated area of the factory, the lawsuit said. This further aggravated her respiratory illness and eventually forced her to go out on disability. She was fired while on disability leave, the lawsuit said.

In addition to the disability discrimination, Ochoa, who is over 40 and a Jehovah’s Witness, “was constantly ridiculed by her supervisors and peers because of her age and religion,” according to the lawsuit. Harassment included being told she was too old to be driving, being told that only “‘crazy people’ belonged to her religion, and asked if she was “trying to recruit more crazy people into her cult…” Sabra managers failed to investigate her complaints about this discriminatory treatment, according to the lawsuit.

“Large corporations such as Sabra should be held accountable for their unfair and unscrupulous employment practices, which aim to take advantage of employees who fear they’ll be fired or be subjected to retaliation for speaking up,” said Attorney Kamran Shahabi, who specializes in employment law as managing partner at Valiant Law of Ontario, Calif. “Sabra and its managers threatened employees with discipline and termination if they resisted their illegal actions, but Ms. Ochoa had the courage to stand against Sabra and fight for justice for not only herself but for the other hardworking and vulnerable laborers at Sabra.”

The lawsuit was filed Jan. 18 in Los Angeles Superior Court but has since been transferred to San Diego County Superior Court for the convenience of all parties involved. Ochoa worked exclusively at Sabra’s Oceanside, California facility, located in San Diego County. The lawsuit names Ochoa as the plaintiff but claims as many as 250 other hourly employees also were subject to the same wage-law violations. Sabra Dipping Co. is based in White Plains, N.Y., with multiple manufacturing plants across the country.

Valiant Law represents various individuals and entities in all aspects of employment claims, including harassment and discrimination, and wage and hour class actions in state and federal courts. With over a decade of legal practice in Southern California, including the Inland Empire, Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Diego County, as well as Las Vegas.

Secure Channels Launches Desktop Encryption Utility ZIPcrypt™ featuring XOTIC™ extreme encryption technology and all-new “dialable” cipher-strength

UNITED STATES, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — IRVINE, CALIF. (April 17, 2019) – Secure Channels Inc., a provider of innovative security solutions, announced today the launch of ZIPcrypt™, an easy-to-use desktop utility that encrypts and decrypts files or folders with a simple right-click.

The ZIPcrypt™ application (utility) is designed for simplicity and to be immediately familiar to those who already use WinZip, WinRAR, or other shell-integrated compression utilities. ZIPcrypt™ presents the option to perform encryption using the widely popular AES-256 standard, as well as the more powerful, ground-breaking new encryption technology known as XOTIC™.

The XOTIC™ encryption format allows for unprecedented direct control over encryption strength using a simple “dial” feature that resembles a stereo volume control knob. XOTIC™ encryption strength ranges from 512 bits of security (known as “post-quantum” strength), all the way up to an eye-popping 131,072 bit, which can only be described as “archive strength”.

ZIPcrypt™ follows the popular “Freemium” model, making it always free to use for basic file and folder ZIP compression with encryption. Users can also opt-in to engage a free-trial of SCIFCOM™. Enabling SCIFCOM™ fully unlocks the potential of ZIPcrypt™, allowing for maximum encryption dial-settings and direct inline integration of the SCIFCOM™ online file-sharing service. The file-sharing feature includes the ability to directly send jumbo sized (extra-large) files securely over the internet via SCIFCOM.

SCIFCOM™ file-sharing utilizes the powerful SCIFCOM™ (as-a-service) website and robust cloud storage options to transmit files anywhere on earth. Recipients of encrypted files receive a link via email whereby encrypted data can be downloaded from the cloud, and encryption keys are handled separately and securely by SCIFCOM.

The minimal and elegant design of ZIPcrypt™ along with robust features for sharing files remotely presents an attractive and powerful alternative to DropBox.com. ZIPcrypt™ combines the ability to securely encrypt, store, and send data with ease.

"Encryption is difficult and expensive, so it's not utilized by very many organizations," said Richard Blech, Chief Executive Officer of Secure Channels Inc. "With ZIPcrypt™ we built a minimalistic yet powerful utility that's exceedingly simple to use and provides users with important capabilities for their own security. These include local file and folder encryption (with ZIP compression) and send-a-file using the online SCIFCOM encryption as-a-service platform. We're excited to offer our first encryption-as-a-service platform and expect rapid adoption due to our combined ease of use and the benefits of encrypted protection. "

ZIPcrypt™ solves one of the most troublesome problems in the world today; the ability to send files safely while still remaining extremely simple to use. "We wanted to create something weightless that won't impact the user experience," said Michael Feinberg, Chief Information Officer of Secure Channels Inc.
