Real estate developer Jason Halpern, known for his passion for constructing in diverse sites, announced the topping off of the Aloft South Beach Hotel in the center of Miami Beach.
Topping off is a builder’s practice which customarily occurs at the time the last beam is placed on the top of a structure during its construction.
This project, which was refined and advanced by JMH Development and Madden Real Estate Ventures, takes on one of the oldest buildings in the Miami Beach area. It is an adaptive reuse of the historic Motel Ankara that will also bring in a new eight-story tower.
One block from the Miami Beach shores, the Aloft South Beach is set in a beautiful waterfront location that will offer the right of entry to Lake Pancoast and the Collins Canal. It also is within walking distance to the area’s restaurants, art galleries and boutiques.
Halpern commented in a statement how topping off the building is a major high point in the construction and establishes the launch of the next phase for the Aloft South Beach. He also mentioned that showing consideration for the community where you build is an important value for him.
Some of the services the 235-room hotel will offer take in a 24-hour fitness center, an outdoor pool, roof deck lounge as well as meeting spaces.
Coming from a 3rd generation development company, Halpern carries on with his family tradition of more than 50 years in the business. The Halpern family has constructed hundreds of residential properties and commercial business spaces in Westchester County, Manhattan and Brooklyn, New York as well as in Florida.
A pioneer in one of a kind and rare properties, JMH Development offers an inventive method to creating distinctive properties. The company will continue its focus on new projects and opportunities.

Just some few months ago, Adam spoke with the ideamensch about his life and career and below is what he had to say. Adam says that his days are usually very hectic. When he want to rest or relax, he gets involved in philanthropy. This way, he manages to feel satisfied and at ease. He says that the only way to make it in life is becoming a doer rather than just an observer. He believes in the follow-up habit and says that it can be very productive. In the real estate business, demand is always ahead of the supply. This is a trend that excites him.
Persistency, consistency and follow up are the key to success. These are the words of Adam Milstein. Adam has never had a bad job since he began his career. Also, he believes that he has made the right choices about his life and there is nothing he would ever regret. According to Adam Milstein, setting specific goals can hinder your growth and development. Instead, he advocates for tackling problems and issues as they arise.

Adam advises young people willing to make it in life not to put all their money in one investment. His closest friend is David Hager who also happens to be his partner at Hager Pacific Properties. He credits him as a smart person who is always ahead of the world affairs.

Online reputation management, also known as ORM, refers to the process of monitoring the information or content that appears on Google or any search engine when someone Googles your name or content. Online reputation management ensures the promotion of positive content in search engines. Online reputation management improves your brand name or image by providing positive content through countering, eliminating and weakening harmful elements by defeating it with positive elements to enhance credibility and win clients. Since your reputation is essential, unflattering news, images, blog posts and comments will automatically ruin the image of your products and services. With online reputation management, such occurrences are eliminated to provide a positive image presentation.
The idea of online reputation management was previously generated to expand public relations outside media relations. Studies have identified online reputation management as the core driving force for over 100 Fortune 500 corporate firms in the 21st century. Following the rapid growth of the internet and social media platforms, online reputation management has become a basic need for the community shifting focus on electronic devices including review sites, top brands, and social media.
A good example of the need for online reputation management is the 2011 controversy of the Taco Bell restaurant and its affiliates when public accusations arose from their low-quality beef. According to reports, their beef contained 35 percent of real meat. On January 21, 2011, the allegations were followed by a lawsuit by a firm called Beasley Allen. However, the suit was withdrawn after reaching no verdict or settlement. According to the initial agreement by the public against Taco Bell, failure to come to an agreement would lead to a voluntary withdrawal of the case.
Most enterprises have adopted wrong ways to improve their reputation falsely. According to a research study by a state University of California, Berkeley, most sellers practice online reputation management on eBay through leveraging services and products at a throwaway price. In return, the sellers receive positive feedback to grow the system. To find out more, visit www.reputationmanagement.com.
Online reputation management shapes the public perception of persons or firms by influencing online contents about that organization. Online reputation management aims at controlling the status of an individual or brand on social media, addressing elements, which may damage it through employing client’s feedback to offer solutions.

The CEO discussed recent rapid advances in technology within the banking sector. He discussed Nexbank’s acquisition of the College Savings Bank. This New Jersey bank helps parents put money away for their student’s college education. CEO John Holt also talked about the larger role of community banking within a region.

NBA games have become so exciting over the years. There are a lot of teams where players have been traded, and it is getting exciting. Dewayne Wade is playing in Chicago with the Bulls now. Derek Rose is playing in New York. I could not wait to start placing my bets on Covers when the season started. It was like I was discovering the best way to place bets this year with Covers and I have started telling all of my friends about it.
There is a huge shift in the betting world. People have more options than just betting on a couple of squares at work. I work in a company where more people favor football. I will say that it is better to have access to a website like Covers.com because it doesn’t matter what people at the office are doing. I can place bets on NBA games and get all the information about the NBA odds that I need by logging on to Covers.
The Internet has made it possible for more people to look at the NBA odds and get a good understanding of where they need to place their bets. The NBA provides so many chances for people to place bets. There are preseason games. People will also discover that there are some bets that can be placed during the regular season. This is the time where the largest number of betting opportunities exist. There are over 80 games that are played by each team. I got for the big games on Christmas day. I also get a lot of bets in during the playoffs. I get a chance to check out Covers and see the NBA point spread. That helps me make much better decisions on the bets that I am placing.
Covers has become the website that people are using when they have a desire to place bets that are more than just a hunch. I used to do this type of betting where I went with my favorite team without any other information. I found that this was not something that made a lot of sense. Covers has taught me, if nothing else, that placing a bet is about more than having a hunch. For me, the betting process is about more than that betting on your favorite team. It is now about getting the stats and placed an educated bet.
