Goettl Air Conditioning Keeps A Local Focus

Goettl air conditioning started operating in Arizona in 1940. The company has a long history of happy customers and important innovations in the Air Conditioning industry. As technology has changed between 1940 and now, Goettl has been at the forefront of service and equipment enhancements. Up until For many years they have been locally owned. Up until just over a year ago the company even manufactured their own AC equipment. That branch of the business was dropped due to overseas competition.

Goettl Air Conditioning sold to Tenn. contractor

However, according to a recent East Valley Tribune article,Gottel may be doing more than just servicing other brands of Air Conditioners in the near future. An ARS/Rescue Rooter spokesperson was quoted in the Tribune article as saying that they may be reinstating the manufacture of the Gottel air conditioning units. ARS/ Rescue Rooter purchased the company and added it to their expanding portfolio. They own locally run business across the United States and the District of Columbia.

Although the ownership has changed hands, the local management has not. The company is still being led in Tempe by Dan Burke, the former president, and ARS/Rescue Rooter southwest division vice president Ken Goodrich. The staff and crew will also remain the same. The same outstanding service and quality of work will be expected.

The new ownership means expanding opportunities for Gottel air conditioning. The possible revival of the manufacturing of Gottel units would be great for the company. There are benefits for the Memphis, Tenn, based ARS/Rescue Rooter owners. Acquiring a company that has been fundamental in the development of air conditioning in the Phoenix Valley where temperatures over 100 degrees for months at a time are common is a unique opportunity.

Gottel Air Conditioning focuses on more than just Air Conditioning. They provide knowledge and service in areas such as Heating, Indoor Air Quality, Energy Efficiency, Commercial HVAC and Maintenance. They are experts at handling newer home installations due to the boom of housing in the valley over the last 75 years. Gottel is known for finding solutions for people who’s homes were built before central air was common. Swamp coolers and mini units are some solutions to keeping the heat at bay. The level of experience and expertise Gottel Air Conditioning has is exactly what drew ARS/Rescue Rooter to adding Gottel Air Conditioning to their portfolio.

The local Tempe management team is looking forward to another 75 years of serving the Phoenix Valley.

George Soros May Be In His Eighties But There Is Nothing Old About His Investment Style

“If investing is entertaining, if you’re having fun, you’re probably not making any money,” “Good investing is boring.” Those thoughts came from one of the most successful investors on the planet, George Soros. Soros is the rock star investor that broke the Bank of England in 1992 when he made $1 billion and his hedge fund made $7 billion betting that the pound sterling would lose value against the American dollar and the German Mark. Soros hasn’t stopped making big commissions since then. The 86-year-old George Soros still travels around the world promoting democracy and an open society. He may call America his home, but he believes he belongs to the world, or at least his opinions do. George tells it like it is when it comes to presidential elections, and investing in the global market. Soros is not happy with the European Union, and he thinks the British have lost their marbles by voting to leave the EU.

Soros attends economic summits, and he warns the world that a global recession is in the works. And, it could be as devastating as the 2008 financial meltdown. George Soros offered a plan to solve the migration crisis, and he warned the Greeks to stop spending money they don’t have. But people really begin to take notice when Soros buys and sells assets. George Soros got out of the investment business in 2015, but he returned in the first quarter of 2016 to manage his family fund, The Soros Management Fund. Only family money is in that fund and the total assets under management is $4.6 billion this year. Soros has been very vocal about his investments in the gold market, but what surprised some investors was his second quarter sale of three solid biotech companies. The Soros fund sold their holdings in iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology Index Fund, Gilead Sciences, and Novavax.

Some investors follow Soros no matter what he does, but there are some hedge fund managers that think those three companies are moneymakers. The Soros Fund has 173 holdings, so dumping three biotech stocks doesn’t indicate that Soros is down on biotech companies. Liberty Broadband is Soros latest buy. The fund bought 8.9 million shares of that U.S. cable service provider. The Soros fund also bought 4.1 million shares of Rovi. Rovi is involved in the discovery, display, delivery, and monetization of digital entertainment. His investment in SPDR Gold and Barrick Gold were big news in 2016. Soros also bought shares in Communications Sales and Leasing, a real estate investment trust. And Soros got in on the new push to invest in Argentina when he bought 1.4 million shares of Grupo Supervielle. Grupo Supervielle is a Argentina-based holding company.

Why Does Duda Melzer And Family Invest In Startups?

Duda Melzer and family invest in startups with their side company known as e.Bricks Ventures. There are new companies in Brazil that need money to operate, and Duda Melzer’s family owns one off the largest communications companies in South America. They clearly have the money needed to help these companies, and that is why they started e.Bricks Ventures.

RBS Group is unique in that it is owned by a large family that already has a business. These venture capital firms are usually started by people who are out of the public eye, but Duda Melzer has been right in the public eye because he just became the CEO of RBS Group. RBS Group is one of the larger communications companies on the continent, and it connects people all over Brazil.

Someone who uses a phone, cell phone or the Internet in Brazil is familiar with the Melzer family because they are using products the Melzers created. Duda Melzer has made some public appearances to talk about how he plans to make his company more modern. He has been asked time and again about how the communications business is changing, and he is taking a more relaxed approach to the industry. He is confident in the investments his family will make with e.Bricks Ventures, and he knows that more customers will appear as Brazil modernizes.

The beauty of e.Bricks Ventures and RBS Group as partners is that one creates customer for the other. There are technology products that could be created by startups, and e.Bricks can help pay for these companies to work. RBS Group will keep people talking to each other while they are working on their ideas, and Duda Melzer will keep both companies afloat. He has prepared his whole life for this moment, and now he takes over the pride of the Melzer family.

How Securus Is Protecting and Safeguarding Inmate Communication

Securus Technologies recently did an audit of Global Tel Link system. Global Tel Link, is an inmate and prison communications provider. The audit revealed that GTL had committed serious acts of violation of inmate privacy. The acts done by GTL went against the principles envisaged when the provision of inmate communications by private companies was permitted. The alleged breach by GTL was among others increasing the call duration by almost 15 or 36 seconds. The provider also added the call charges and subsequently inmates were paying more than the normally allowed rates.

The report compiled by Securus also revealed that the company was double charging one inmate call. When making the announcement, Securus Chief Executive Officer, expressed his disappointment in GTL. He intimated that the actions by GTL were not a reflection of the inmate communications provider industry. I hold the view that detainees ought to be treated with respect and the fact that they are incarcerated does not warrant disrespecting them. I also believe that regular audits of the inmate communications providers should be done to avoid an extra burden to the taxpayer as was demonstrated in the GTL audit.

Securus Technologies is one of the top providers of technology solutions for the civil and criminal systems. The company which is based in Dallas, Texas has been providing inmate communication services for quite a long time. Securus is preferred due to the different services it provides. In addition to the investigation services that it provides, it also offers information management, inmate self-service and biometric analysis. Securus has the vision and mission of ensuring that families and friends of inmates do not lose touch with them while they are in incarceration. Through Securus, the inmate industry is slowly changing as a result of technology and modernization. Technologies offers one Securus company profile, its specialties, website, offices and its size.

Not Thriving In The Work Place? Maybe Consider A Coworking Space

Most people who think about a coworking or share working space , they envision the cubicles that most people refer to as their offices. However, it actually they are not coworking spaces. Coworking spaces are places that you go to work that are shared by other people that are going to work. The catch is that most of the time, these people do not do what you do for a living. In a coworking environment, you can have writers, tradesmen of all sorts, professional people, and the list goes on. There are several theories on why most people thrive in this type of environment.

The first one being that there is no competition. You are not competing with people from your own office for the highest sales of the month. This helps to reduce your overall stress level. There are no interoffice politics to be concerned about. It also gives you the freedom to be yourself and to work on something that truly matters to you.

It is also second nature to give or receive help in this type of environment and most people willing do so. The work space is made up with talented people with a larger variety of knowledge and skills. There are plenty of opportunities to seek out someone for help and advice. The workplace is a community and functions as one. However, that does not mean you need to spend your day chatting away at the water cooler. Getting alone time to concentrate or to make an important deadline is well respected in this type of environment.

In New York City, it is not surprising, people can find a variety of these shared working spaces. One such place in Workville. Workville’s NYC coworking space provides a large, clean space for people to come to work. There are areas for people to get out and get fresh air while working. Spaces for collaboration are available as well as private spaces for the times when you need to work alone Workville provides coffee around the clock. There are printers to use as well as phones and other things that are needed to get the job done. If your current working environment is not working for you, try something new.
