Squaw Valley Water Quality Improves

Thanks to the efforts of Placer County Environmental Health and the Squaw Valley Public Service District, the drinking water at Squaw Valley’s upper mountain is showing improvement. While it is not yet drinkable, tests conclude that three out of the four wells that serve the upper mountain have significantly decreased the presence of coliform bacteria to low levels. There was no E. coli found in the three wells sampled, all of which is evidence that the water quality at Squaw Valley is improving drastically.


Squaw Valley is environmentally conscious and had recently installed an upgraded water system over High Camp and Gold Coast. In addition to keeping their systems up-to-date, Squaw Valley also performs regular tests on their water quality. Because of these regular tests, the presence of E. coli and coliform bacteria was discovered quickly. The existence of these bacterium in the water systems was due to a particularly heavy rain storm back in October of 2016. This rain storm affected many different water systems within Placer County and the upgraded system at Squaw Valley was not immune.


The heavy rain caused flooding and soon the system at the famed ski resort were contaminated by the overflow. The water was rendered non-potable due to the bacteria. The issue was quickly detected because of Squaw Valley’s regular testing. Public safety officials and other water safety experts were contacted as soon as the issue became apparent.


With the help of these experts, Squaw Valley has taken the necessary steps to clean their water and systems. In a statement issued by Liesl Kenney, Public relations Director for Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, the Squaw Valley resort states that “the safety of our customers is paramount… We take this issue very seriously… We have taken steps to address the issue and will continue to do so until the water in the system has returned to normal levels.”


Restaurants at the upper mountain currently remain closed, but that skiers can still enjoy Squaw Valley. The famed ski resort has remained open for top-to-bottom skiing and has provided free bottled water for all facilities and guests.

The Natural Creative Talent of Alexandre Gama

When you’ve got a natural talent for something, it won’t take long for others around you to recognize that. This is certainly true when it comes to creative entrepreneur Alexandre Gama. In his first role in the creative industry, Alexandre Gama was a copywriter for advertising agencies. During this time he was recognized and awarded more times than any other Brazilian of his generation for his copywriting work. It didn’t take years of honing his craft professionally for him to be seen as a clear and definitive asset to the field of advertising and communications. His own agency, Neogama, was met with instant achievement after just one year of operation. His company won a Cannes Film Award that year, becoming the first Brazilian advertising agency to do so in such a short span of time. Since then Alexandre Gama has racked up 23 Golden Lion Awards from the Cannes Film Festival.

Brad Reifler Makes A Generous Gift To America’s Armed Services

At a time when many servicemen are returning from the battlefields overseas, the challenges they’ve faced coming home have included transitioning into civilian employment and dealing with a Veteran’s Administration that’s had its issues.

But Brad Reifler, the founder and CEO of Forefront Capital has extended his generosity to help these returning veterans through a foundation he’s recently given to. That foundation is Easter Seals Dixon Center, a New York based veterans assistance foundation that helps returning veterans receive job training and education and connects them with healthcare providers.

Reifler is proud to have given this facility a $3 million donation that he hopes will touch the lives of many veterans and their families. Learn more about Brad Reifler: https://www.crunchbase.com/person/brad-reifler

Bloomberg said that Brad Reifler is an investment expert and entrepreneur that has been working hard to change public perception about the banking and wealth management industries. He has a bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College and over 30 years in executive management.

He began in futures investing when he founded Reifler Trading Company, growing that company from a small discretionary account manager to a major global securities trading company. He founded Pali Capital about 10 years after starting the Reifler Trading Company, and this company became a highly acclaimed hedge fund management firm in its time and had offices in 4 different continents during the years it operated.

In 2010 Brad Reifler founded Forefront Capital, an alternative investment firm with a large rolodex of high profile clients.

According to PR News Wire, Brad Reifler’s work at Forefront Capital has consisted of evolving the company from an accredited investor firm to one that allows the 99% inside its doors. Brad Reifler believes that just because an investor isn’t a large income or Wall Street certified individual doesn’t mean they shouldn’t invest.

He knows the difficulty many middle class Americans face entering investing because he had once tried to invest his father’s lifesavings into a reliable IRA account, but he had few choices due to SEC regulations on non-accredited investors.

So after working with the SEC to loosen the regulations, Reifler began Forefront Income Trust, a public fund that now allows any investors to invest in even for as little as $1,000. But Reifler hopes this is just the beginning of a new investing movement.

Are You Looking For A New Investment Opportunity? Try Wine!

Have you wondered about those truly expensive wines, and why people buy them? The price of a truly expensive bottle of wine is based upon its rarity and taste. It is a complex tale of where the grapes were grown, what the weather was like that year, what Chateau produced it, to name a few pointers.

You do not have to be a historian to know good wine when you taste it; you might want to consult a wine historian when you want to buy wine.

Considering wine as an investment opportunity is a strange, new phenomenon to a lot of investors. But look at it this way: extremely rare, good wines will go up in value as some of the bottling is consumed. There is no doubt about it. If fine wines was worth some dollars per bottle when there were 100 bottles, by the time there are only 50 bottles left, it will likely be worth more dollars at that time, or possibly twice as much. As it is consumed, it can not be replaced. But read this disclaimer: That is a mere example for the layman, and will not hold true for any particular situation, by the way.

So, to find out about the possibility of investing in wines, one must find someone who knows a few things about wine history and what a bottle is worth.
