Beyond the Darkness new podcast

If you’re looking to get scared, look no further. A special, new podcast is about to hit. Called, “Beyond the Darkness,” it’s going to be creepier than a haunted house. The podcast will feature long and fascinating discussions about whether ghosts exist, whether ghouls and goblins are real or just a figment of the imagination. They’ll speak of the devil and his underlings. They’ll explore UFOs and other unexplained phenomena like Area 51.

 

They’ll do it, moreover, in a more respectful and serious way than anyone has heard in a long time. So, be prepared. The podcast is set to debut Monday. It’s the brainchild of Norman Pattiz and Chris Jericho, and it will call the pair’s podcasting network, PodcastOne, home.

 

The show will be hosted by two longtime veterans of the paranormal world: Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis. You might’ve heard of them. Schrader has written books about the paranormal and has hosted a plethora of radio shows. Dennis, for his part, comes with years’ worth of experience in the radio industry and is an expert on all things paranormal.

 

Jericho is a former WWE wrestler who transitioned into podcasting. Today, he hosts a very well-known show of his own. So it says something that Jericho is so enthralled to listen to, “Beyond Darkness.” He does, however, remain a bit creeped out over what he is going to hear, he said in a statement about the show.

 

“Beyond the Darkness,” is just the latest in a slew of podcasts that the PodcastOne network has launched over the last five years. The network was launched by radio impresario Norman Pattiz in 2012. Pattiz spent 40 years working and rising up in the radio industry. Over the years, he saw how the general populace was transitioning from the radio to their computers, where they could watch or listen to whatever they wanted on the Internet.

 

This spurred him to launch a podcast network in 2012. He recruited Chris Jericho as one of his first podcasters, and the two have delved into their work. They recruited some of the biggest names in the podcasting world to host their shows on the PodcastOne Network. Today, people like Adam Carolla, Dr. Drew, Neil Strauss, and Jay Mohr are a part of Pattiz’s network. In fact, the network has become the largest, advertiser-based podcast network in the country.

 

For all his recent success, Pattiz was recently featured in Forbes magazine.

From Startup To Mega Brand, The Story Of Evolution Of Smooth

What Is Evolution Of Smooth?

Evolution of Smooth is a lip balm and beauty brand that was created in 2006. Sanjiv Mehra, Jonathan Teller and Craig Dubitsky are the three original founders of the firm. Mr. Mehra worked for firms such as Unilever and PepsiCo, which deal with packaged goods that are sold to consumers. Mr. Teller and Mr. Dubitsky meanwhile, worked at startup incubators, where new ideas are turned into budding new businesses.

The three founders of Evolution of Smooth got their idea for the brand when they looked at the health and beauty aisle of major supermarkets and pharmacies. They pondered the idea of what product category they could enter and disrupt with a new innovation. The lip balm category of the beauty aisle seemed to be a prime entry point.

Already well versed in business, Teller, Dubitsky and Mehra decided to do a comprehensive research report on the lip balm market. They found that except for a few minor changes, that products in the lip balm aisle have remained unchanged for almost a hundred years. The ingredients, colors, flavors and packaging were pretty much the same for over a century.

Realizing a chance to disrupt the market and with a prime opportunity to launch a new business, the trio came up with EOS lip balm. It would be set apart by the following. Evolution of Smooth lip balms would be made from 99% or 100% all natural ingredients. It would feature an all natural as well as organic lip balm lines. Another differentiation was the EOS lip balm would come in a sphere shaped package instead of the traditional stick format. The packaging would also be bright and colorful and not drab and unappealing. EOS balms would also be available in many different fruity and sweet flavors (see: http://www.target.com/p/eos-organic-lip-balm-sphere-summer-fruit/-/A-13352556) instead of having no flavor or just mint and cherry as its competitors at the time had. EOS lip balms are available on Walmart, Target and online on Amazon or eBay.

Focus on the Litigation Process and Karl Heideck

At some point in a business career or in life, the odds of suing or getting sued are very high. The litigation process has remained to be a mystery to a lot of people and it can be an intimidating and frustrating experience to any lay person. The litigation process proceeds through various steps: pleadings stage, discovery, trial and an appeal in some cases. This process is only necessary when the two parties to the suit cannot settle outside court and the matter has to proceed for full trial.

Litigation Process

Each party to a suit is expected to file their papers (pleadings) explaining their side of the story concerning the dispute. The complainant approaches the court first and serves the defendant with a copy of pleadings. The defendant is given some time to respond to the complaint raised and their counter-claims if any. After the two parties complete this, the various issues to be determined by the court are well defined. The suit proceeds to the discovery stage where both parties gather all the information they have concerning the case to ensure a successful litigation process.

After this stage, which is the longest in the process, the suit proceeds to the trial stage. At the trial stage both parties present their cases before a competent judge and adduce any evidence they wish to rely on. Litigators on both sides can question and cross-examine witnesses as well as protest the admission of evidence that they feel is not admissible.

How Fabletics is Doing it Different

Fabletics is a store that sells what is typically referred to as “athleisure”, or women’s sportswear and sports accessories. It is an online retailer that requires a subscription and in exchange for the subscription, the members get personalized outfits which are chosen for them by stylists based on certain questions to show their style preference and their lifestyle.

 

Fabletics was started in July of 2013 by famous actress Kate Hudson, Adam Goldenberg, and Don Ressler. The store was officially launched a few months later on October 1st, 2013. Later on, in June of 2015, Kate Hudson’s brother, Oliver Hudson, helped them launch a men’s active wear line. The company expanded even more in March of 2016 by adding swimsuits and even dresses to their online shop. Fabletics has also started numerous pop-up shops in various locations.

 

Fabletics has grown it’s business to $250 million in only three years. So what’s the secret? Fabletics makes it quite simple. Customers are interested in brands that push them so when you combine that with the convenience of online shopping and having styles chosen for you, as well as a membership, then you come up with a combination that is powerful. Having a membership is what allows Fabletics to give not only a personalized service but also fashion choices that are on-trend at only half the price of what other’s active wear is selling for.

 

The majority of Fabletics’ competitors are “getting killed” by something that is known as showrooming. This is where people are searching offline, or in a store, for something that they want but then later finding it somewhere else, usually online, for much cheaper. Fabletics has done something completely different by reversing this model, since they started out as an online shop. Fabletics has turned the browsing aspect of shopping into a positive, instead of into a negative like other in-store competitors. The current strategy of this company allows them to not only build and grow relationships with their customers, but also be a company that can be relied on and through events as well as activities, get to know and understand the markets better. Because of this, at least 30-50% of customers who walk through the pop-up shop doors are currently members, and even another 25% will sign up as a member in the store. Not only this, but Fabletics also does not care where the customer purchases in store, whatever is tried on will also be added to the customer’s online shopping cart, also. This makes for an easy check-out later when that customer gets home, if they decide not to purchase in store.

Former Hawks ownership Files a Lawsuit against New Hampshire Insurance Company

The New Hampshire Insurance Company is experiencing hard times after the Atlanta Hawks basketball and Entertainment Company sued them. The Atlanta Hawks claims that the insurance firm breached a contract involving the reimbursement of claims presented by the ex-general manager Danny Ferry.

Bruce Levenson was one of the owners of the former Hawks ownership group (AHBE). Note that the lawsuit does not embroil the present Hawks ownership group supervised by Tony Ressler. The complaint against the insurance firm was filed in the Fulton County Superior Court on September 13. The charges were described as AIG, which meant that a civil action for breach of contract and insurance bad faith. The former Hawks ownership group says that an insurance cover was provided under a policy of coverage for some losses linked to employment practices such as some acts of wrongful cessation and workplace torts. As per the court documents, AHBE issued a notice to AIG on 2nd April 2015 stating that Ferry asserted all the claims and it assumed that they were covered.

According to Time Magazine, the six-year-old relationship between Ferry and Hawks ended when the two parties reached an undisclosed acquisition pact on 22nd June 2015. After two years, the sale of the franchise to Ressler was approved. The lawsuit explains that the sensitive limits of liability of the policy are enough to play the claim of AHBE. The lawsuit further explains that AIG has refused to admit that the complaint was filed and it has been triggered.
