Getting reservations to restaurants and even to sports bars may seem like it’s simple enough because most people just make a phone call when they’re ready to go to these types of places on Facebook. In New York City, getting into certain places that require a reservation may not be obtained by a phone call but will require some credentials or for the person to be a VIP. Anyone who’s ever been rejected for anything knows how bad it feels to get turned away, even for something as simple as a restaurant reservation. Having a Magnises card can make all the difference when it comes time to make a reservation.

Magnises has built many business relationships with companies in New York City, San Francisco, and Washington DC, and anyone who has the card can benefit greatly from these relationships. Those who are going to stay at the Dream hotel can expect to get a discount if they have a HotelPass of Magnises. Anyone who wants to go to many nightclubs in New York City and other areas can guarantee they’ll be let in once they have a ClubPass. Discounts as well as guaranteed reservations can be given with the Magnises card.

Anyone who has just moved to New York City and is a Magnises card member who wants to know what’s hip and what things there are to do should use their Magnises Concierge. The concierge has every bit of information that you could ever want about what’s going on in New York City, especially where a Magnises member is concerned. Ask the concierge anything, and the concierge is so good that it will address you by name and answer your questions. Get reservations made right through the concierge application, and you can be on your way to a great restaurant or sports bar for the night.

It seems funny that anyone would have to make reservations for a sports bar, but that just goes to show how different New York City is with the kind of establishments they have available. There are some amazing sports bars that are frequented by stars, and these places may require a reservation, especially if there are tables that are in high demand. With all the great restaurants that New York City has available, it’s no surprise that many of these restaurants will require that a person get a reservation, so having the Magnises card can help.

Getting the Magnises card is as simple as going to the website and clicking the “join now” button. Pay for the monthly membership, and add any type of pass that is available. Each pass can be added to the Magnises card at the behest of the customer, but not everyone will be interested in every pass that Magnises offers. Learn more about what each pass can do in order to be fully informed if you choose to add passes to your Magnises card. Also, don’t forget that your Magnises card is customized with your name and can be linked directly to your banking account.

I can see sense in the adage averring that there is always a woman behind every successful man. Dick DeVos is married to one wife, Betsy DeVos. In an interview she gave for the Spring 2013 issue of the Philanthropy magazine, Betsy minced no words. She is clearly the driving force behind Dick DeVos huge success in his hugely philanthropic life. She explains how and why she and Dick decided to go into charity work. It was during a visit to the Potter’s House Christian School that they came across many families struggling to keep their children in school. They are driven by the idea of loving one another which I find quite laudable.

The Charity Life of Dick DeVos

The Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation is perhaps the biggest work of charity by Dick DeVos. Through this project, he has been pumping thousands of dollars into philanthropic organizations such as Kids Hope USA, Education Freedom Fund, Art Prize Grand Rapids, Children First America, and Choices for Children and the American Education Reform Council, among many others. In 2010, Dick formed the nation’s first aviation school, the West Michigan Aviation Academy.

Dick has also extended his philanthropic ideals to arts funding. In 2010, the DeVoses channeled a whopping $22.5 million into the Kennedy Center Institute of Arts Management. It was the biggest private funding the institution had ever received from a single individual. In honoring this significant financial input from Dick, the organization was later renamed to reflect his name.

DeVos also continues to make immense contributions to the education sector. To this end, they established The Dick and Betsy DeVos Scholarship in 2008. The Scholarship supports students, especially from the developing world, to pursue MA, MS or MBA at the Thunderbird School of Global Management. Dick DeVos also offers annual scholarships to students wishing to earn a BBA or MBA at Northwood University.

Mr. and Mrs. Dick DeVos have also shown commitment to a better environment by contributing $500,000 towards a private study of Lake Macatawa. The study aims at establishing specific sources of E. coli in and around the lake using DNA fingerprint technology. The study would not have been possible without adequate funding.

In a nutshell, Dick and Betsy DeVos have made an enormous contribution to the well-being of the society by setting up numerous charity organizations.


Andy Wirth is one of the most prominent entrepreneurs in Germany. He was born in Neubrucke, West Germany on July 25, 1963. He is a well-known philanthropist whose aim is to help the poor in the society in a bid eliminate poverty in the country. Andy Wirth attended Colorado University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science and later proceeded to Edinburgh University in Scotland. After school, he advanced to Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporation where he began his career and learned a lot about management as well as leadership skills.

He began his career at Steamboat Spring Resort where he served in different leadership and marketing positions. While serving in these posts, Andy learned the skills to lead and manage people as well as making solid strategies for a corporation. Andy Wirth was later appointed the Chief Marketing Officer and also the vice president of Intrawest which then acquired Steamboat in 2007. As a marketing director and the President, he ensured that all customers were satisfied with the services and also made sure that the corporation was well known all over the world due to high standards and professional ethics they depicted to the clients.

Currently, Andy Wirth is the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Holding where he replaced former CEO Nancy Cushing. Immediately Andy Wirth took over; the company underwent a $ 70 million upgrade. He improved the mountain design and infrastructure and also renovated the culinary base. He also made changes to the base area facilities, lodgings and also the common areas which were funded by KSL Capital Partners. The improvements he made had an impact on the customers as they felt comfortable being in the company and became loyal which in turn resulted in increased profits.

No one will dispute that law enforcement has a tough job. They have to catch criminals that have committed crimes and they have to prevent crimes that may be committed as well. This industry is the one that has been designated to protect and serve their community and they have a lot on their plate. They need to always be thinking of new and innovative ways to catch and prevent criminals from doing what they are doing.


 Securus Technologies is a technology firm that specializes in software and innovations to aid law enforcement and the corrections industry. They have their home base set in Dallas, Texas, and work with over 3,400 law enforcement agencies. They also work with over 1 million inmates all over North America. They have been in business since 1986 and have been on the cutting edge of new and advanced technology to assist law enforcement with everything that they do.


The latest software that was released by Securus Technologies is called Investigator Pro. This is a voice recognition program and is tied into the correctional facilities telephone system. Every voice that is used on that telephone system is registered and can be tracked. This applies to the inmates that are inside the prison making the calls as well as anyone they call outside of the prison.


There are many advantages to the Investigator Pro software. When a voice is registered, it can be matched against other calls that are made using that telephone system. Law enforcement now has another tool to see who inmates are calling and to whom they are speaking with. Gang activity can be tracked. Criminal activity can be registered. This software is a definite advantage and can help cut down on crime.


Enterprise technology is probably something that people have heard of before, but they might not have used it. I have been using enterprise technology for a while, and I know that it works really well when you are trying to manage a connected business. My business has been using enterprise technology on the phones we give to our customers, and we know that we have had a lot of good work done just because everyone is connected. We set up our email on cell phones back in the 90s, and now we have everything connected on a much higher level.

Eric Pulier’s technology has opened the way for many of us to get the work done that needs to be done a daily basis, and we can share information much more easily because we are using his tools. He has kept the industry updated for two decades, and he still finds time to do charity work and help the people who need it the most. I have always been impressed with him, and I think that other people would be just as impressed if they took the time to find his work and use it where they could.

I heard that he is now on the X Prize committee where he looks over entries that are meant to help us get to space, and I think that he is even pressing people to do more public work like NASA does. He sees a lot of potential in inventions, and I know that he wants people to aim higher so that they can give back to the world when they do the work that they do.

I have been noting but happy with Eric Pulier since we started using his technology. He has been a help to us and many other businesses. He still makes time for the X Prize and charity work because it matters to him just like it matters to us.

From food, shelter to transportation, many people take for granted the basic things in life. Rarely do we stop and reflect on how other people are struggling out there just to get access to those things that we take for granted. For many people who depend on Greyhound public transport, the laborers, the itinerant, the single parents, the veterans, the elderly, the working students, the suffering, much of everyday life is a struggle.

Greyhound serves a good number of these struggling Americans. However, their voices are hardly audible beyond the daily buzz of politics and entertainment in America. Just like everybody has a story to tell, so is every one of these Greyhound passengers. The former overseas reporter for CNN and ABC Doug Levitt chose to give them a platform to air their experiences by getting up and close with the public travelers on the Greyhound bus line and learning what they face on a daily basis.

Doug Levitt, a singer, songwriter, and photographer was born in Washington D.C in 1972. He is a graduate of Cornell University and was formerly a foreign reporter for famous media outlets like NBC, CNN, and ABC. At the time, Doug was based in the UK, and was posted to areas as far-flung as Iran, Rwanda, and Botswana. Probably this roving existence spurred his career switch to a songwriter. The career switch inspired a now famous multimedia project. More than a decade ago, Levitt set out on a journey across America aboard a Greyhound bus which formed the basis of the ‘The Greyhound Diaries’ multimedia project that he circuits with up until now.

During the journey, he took pictures, wrote songs and stories inspired by the passengers onboard the Greyhound buses. Given that majority of the passengers were people who were struggling to make a living, Levitt’s journey was truly eye opening. Did he not only listen to narrations from strangers but also saw the challenges that they were facing. Armed with this unique experience, Levitt came up with ‘The Greyhound Diaries’ which consists of photographs, testimonials, video recordings and live musical performances, each providing a rare glimpse into the everyday struggles of American passengers who depend on public transportation. Indeed, the album evokes a soul-searching experience.

The Jerusalem Post this week named Adam Milstein in its top 50 most influential Jewish leaders of 2016, among luminaries in politics, activism, acting and government. The list boasts such names as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Justice Elena Kagan, and businesswoman, Ivanka Trump.

Mr. Milstein is co-founder of the California based Israeli-American Council which aims to give strength to Jewish people, and to the State of Israel. It also has as its mission the strengthening of the bond between the United States and Israel. The IAC has grown to include 10 regional councils and has volunteers in 27 states. It also teaches the skills pertaining to leadership to Jewish and to Israeli-American high school students.

Adam Milstein engages with philanthropy at every level, investing his time, expertise and finances. He engages in activism and is a speaker and board member with many Jewish organizations, including StandWithUs, Hasbara Fellowships, and Jewish Funders Network. He co-founded the organization, Sifriyat Pijama B’America which provides books in Hebrew on a monthly basis to 15,000 Jewish families.

Mr. Milstein was born in Haifa, Israel, were he spent his early years. He later joined Israel Defense Forces and in 1973 served in the Yom Kippur War. He graduated college with a Bachelor of Science degrees in both business science and economics. He married and after having two children, moved to the United States in 1981. In the year 2000, Mr. Milstein established the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation which helps to encourage young Jewish people to identity with their Jewish roots and also with Israel.

Mr. Milstein expressed his gratitude at having been listed on the Jerusalem Post’s prestigious list of the 50 most influential Jewish people. He also thanked his wife, the IAC and the host of organizations he partners with in order to make a difference. The award, he said, was a testament to the accomplishments of the American-Israeli community.

The Lake Tahoe region of California and Nevada is often considered one of the best areas of the country to ski. While the area has many natural mountains and great snow for skiing, the success of the area is equally due to the efforts of many people involved in the continued development and planning for Lake Tahoe. One individual that has been a huge part of the development and expansion of the Lake Tahoe region is Andy Wirth.

Andy Wirth is currently the CEO of the Squaw Valley Ski Resort in the Lake Tahoe Region. He is a highly respected individual in the area for both his professional accolades and his charitable causes. He also sits on a number of different boards, including that for the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board, which he was named a member of just a few weeks ago.

As the CEO of Squaw Valley, Andy Wirth has overseen a significant amount of expansion and development. He has overseen at least two major projects that have modernized the mountain and resort and has also been involved in the acquisition of a competing resort in the area. This has helped to make Squaw Valley the leading ski resort in the entire area of Lake Tahoe.

Andy Wirth has a long history of work and philanthropy prior to being named CEO of Squaw Valley. He was initially born in Germany, but moved to the United States while still young. He ultimately went to Colorado State University where he focused on getting an education to allow him to manage ski resorts.

After finish school, he was an employee at the top resort in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. He quickly grew the corporate ladder at Steamboat Springs, but also got to know a lot of people in the area and industry. Many consider his greatest accomplishment to be his contributions that helped to bring the Winter Olympics to the United States.

In the society we live in communication has become more and more advanced. It is something that we heavily rely upon in our lives, because it keeps us all connected to one another, bringing our world closer together. This sense of community that communication creates is detrimental to our culture because it allows our different worlds to talk with each other across the planet, whether you are talking to a pen-pal from the other side of the world or to your parents in the state next to yours.

The Technology Marketing Corporation understands the importance of its industry in communication and has been giving out awards to the leading innovators that have greatly evolved the industry. The latest winner of their Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award was Talk Fusion for their evolutionary Video Chat product. The new product from Talk Fusion has given flexibility to its users that the industry has not offered yet, allowing its users to use any device to talk with each other face to face. The flexibility through tablets, smartphones, and computers gives users the ability to talk with others while on the go or when just at home. The kicker on top of this perk, however, is that the service extends to anywhere in the world. This means you could be in the United States and be talking to someone in Kenya face to face over your phones. The ingenuity involved in the product has allowed it to cross barriers in the industry that others were not able to crack.

Their product then makes it obvious why they were awarded this year for their exceptional work in the communication’s field. The Founder and CEO Bob Reina told interviewers that there would be even more to come from their company as they work to create an all in one communications platform for users. This drive from Talk Fusion has kept them ahead of the competition and made them a leader for giving us the communication products we need to complete our work, share our creations, and talk to the ones we love.
