The Heldrich Hotel… A Diamond in the Rough?

“We took a crappy block and turned it into something special” were the words of Christopher Paladino, attorney for The New Brunswick Development Corporation, responsible for the renovation of the Heldrich Hotel in New Brunswick, NJ. A $20 million loan was given to the Middlesex County Improvement Authority from the CRDA (Casino Reinvestment Development Authority) in 2005 to renovate the run down hotel. Unfortunately, the Improvement Authority has been behind on payments for about five years, adding up to nearly $7 million. The majority of its customers have been with the Johnson and Johnson account, whose executives are on the board of directors for the New Brunswick Development Corporation, according to an article written by the Press of Atlantic City.

The hotel opened at a rocky time, in 2007, just as the economy was about to take a dive. They have not been able to obtain much occupancy and even had to use $776,000 of their own money just to replace carpets and mattresses according to Chris Paladino in the article. Maria Prato, spokesperson for the Middlesex County Improvement Authority said she hopes that as the overall economy improves, the hotel will continue to improve and “satisfy its outstanding obligations.” CRDA Executive Director John Palmieri said that the $20 million loan was given knowing they would be among the last to be paid and admits in the Atlantic City Press article that things aren’t necessarily going as planned.
The New Brunswick Development Corporation, “Devco,” is a non profit real estate development company formed to restore the New Brunswick area, specializing in public-private partnerships. Devco is responsible for $1.6 billion in projects that have taken place in New Brunswick, according to www.devco.org. The website states that the projects are based on the people who live, work in, and visit New Brunswick. Hopefully the Heldrich Hotel can be “a diamond in the rough,” defeat its economic troubles, and live true to the philosophy of “Devco.”

 

Magic Mike Returns in Magic Mike XXL!

Michael Lane thought that he was out for good but he is soon thrust back into the game in this 2015 sequel to the original smash hit Magic Mike (2012). Three years have passed since Magic Mike called it quits. We find Lane has finally started his custom furniture business like he always wanted, but things didn’t turn out quite the way he had been hoping for. Dumped by Brooke (the previous film’s love interest) and seriously in debt, Michael Lane starts to question his life decisions, when he suddenly gets a cryptic call from his old friend Tarzan saying ‘’Dallas is gone’’

Thinking that his former mentor has died, he heads out to meet the rest of his ‘’Kings of Tampa’’ crew, only to find them all having a good time. At first angered, the boys explain to Lane how Dallas had abandoned them and how they were heading to Myrtle Beach to perform at a big stripper convention for ‘’One Last Time’’. Seeing his friends again stirred in Lane a desire to head back out on the road again with his buddies and leave his woes behind. During this trip we see his alter ego ‘’Magic Mike’’ slowly start to re-emerge again as he finds peace with his life and finally starts to enjoy being a male stripper. Magic Mike XXL is a film that entertains; it balances the drama and comedy to great effect.

One particular highlight of the movie is a young actress named Crystal Hunt. She plays Lauren, a small but delicious part in the film that must be seen to be believed; an excess of wine and adventurous ladies is quite a scandalous thing to behold indeed. This is a career defining role for this wonderfully talented actress.

Her Facebook indicates that Crystal Hunt is also a producer, and has appeared in various different TV and film roles. Her most notable roles to date have been as Lizzie Spaulding on Guiding Light and Stacy Morasco (as a stripper no less) on the long running soap opera One Life to Live. She also serves as executive producer on the film Talbot County (2015) written and directed by Bev Land. The sky is the limit for Crystal Hunt, and the world waits in anticipation to see what other great works she has in store.  Be sure to come along on the journey by following her Instagram, and be sure to bookmark her page on TV.com.

When Negative Reviews Crop Up

Ever since companies began to sell products, there have been positive and negative reviews of practically every item out there for sale. Negative reviews are potentially the more powerful of the two since they can drive customers away. That’s where companies like Bury Bad Articles come in.

Bury Bad Articles is a company in a pioneer industry: online reputation repairs. Negative business reviews, their website states, can cost up to 70% of potential customers – depending on how many negative reviews show up on the first page of the search engine results. Bury Bad Articles offers free quotes, and makes sure that their services are what they say they are.

Negative press happens to every single company. In the days before internet technology made it possible to access articles that are years old, negative press would fade away on its own. With that possibility no longer an option, companies have had to become proactive in how they handle bad press when it happens – not after the fact.

Companies like Bury Bad Articles have popped up for that specific purpose. As companies come to release how much profit bad press costs them – even for months or years after the initial uproar – they have tried to deal with it. Search engine results can only be manipulated so much by having someone click on the good results multiple times. To fully make other negative press go away, they have to be able to do more than simply click on the articles they want highlighted. They have to have help.

The FreedomPop Wi-Fi Network Is Available To Everyone For Only $5 Each Month

FreedomPop is proud to introduce an unlimited Wi-Fi service into its many different services that they are currently offering to their customers. Many have struggled with the high prices of data plans on their cell phone, and those who cannot afford hotspots of their own will love the fact that FreedomPop is offering them an alternative if they need Wi-Fi service. Those who choose to use Wi-Fi will only do so when they don’t have a hotspot of their own available or a secure network that they can join. Many who choose Wi-Fi are away from their home and must rely on Wi-Fi for free service.

Although the FreedomPop Wi-Fi service charges a five dollar monthly fee, the fact that each person has access to the service by signing up for it means that it’s a highly secure service that only registered users can access. Many Wi-Fi services that can be found in eateries and businesses across the USA have easy access without any password, and this can make accessing a Wi-Fi network that’s not FreedomPop very risky. It’s been proven that a lot of hackers will find their way to places that give free Wi-Fi service, just so they can tap into the massive amounts of information being sent over Wi-Fi.

Those who want to use FreedomPop’s service for Wi-Fi will have a much safer time using the network, and with tens of millions of locations that will have the FreedomPop Wi-Fi hotspot, there are very few who will have to go without using the service as long as they are near a hotspot location. Many of the FreedomPop hotspot locations will be available in stores like Burger King, Best Buy, Starbucks, McDonald’s and more. A person only needs to be within the range of the Wi-Fi signal in order for it to automatically connect if their device already has the information for the hotspot. http://www.androidcentral.com/freedompop-offers-unlimited-access-its-wifi-network-5-month
The fee for the monthly Wi-Fi service is less than a typical lunch at a fast food place. The person can use the Wi-Fi service as much as they want without having to worry about paying an overage fee, which is something that many regular Internet providers are doing these days. Some people find themselves paying extra money for Internet service in their home, but those who want free access to constant Wi-Fi when they are on the go should choose the FreedomPop Wi-Fi service.
