San Diego is a mecca of fine dining restaurants. The choices there are limitless and the variety is great. Brian Bonar is a known businessman and wanted to take advantage of the San Diego restaurant scene. He had an idea to create a small restaurant empire and he wanted to do it in the greater San Diego area.
To start off his small restaurant empire idea, he opened a bistro called Bellamy’s. Bellamy’s is located in the old Tango restaurant and was renamed when Brian Bonar purchased the location. Once purchased, the transformations began.
One of Brian Bonar’s favorite restaurants was doing a major overhaul. They were changing the entire look and feel of the place. Bonar was able to step in and hire some of their staff. Two of the key employees he was able to hire were Trevor Da Costa, a front man, and Mike Reidy, a cook. Mike Reidy was elevated to executive chef at Bellamy’s.
To take Bellamy’s up another notch, Brian brought in Patrick Ponsaty as Master Chef. He holds the title of Master Chef of France. There are only two people in all of San Diego who hold this title and Patrick Ponsaty is one of them. Together Ponsaty and Reidy have created an extraordinary menu that customers are raving about. The foods have a strong French influence and they have taken old favorites and added their own twist to it. It is rare that someone leaves this restaurant hungry or unsatisfied.
In addition to the food being impeccable, the staff is just as amazing. They are all very well trained on all the dishes that are served and can describe them in great detail. The staff and the food combined make dining at Bellamy’s a worthwhile experience.
The second step in Brian Bonar’s restaurant empire will be an upscale 4-star restaurant. He purchased a 144-acre lot in Bandy Canyon and wants to make it one of the best restaurants and event spaces in San Diego. He has brought in and trained the right people and they will take his restaurants far.

This is not to take anything away from the accomplishments of Sajay Shah, which are very impressive and noteworthy. It is not every day that someone starts their own business in Solo Capital as the CEO and founder and it succeeds and grows the way his company has. It is not every day that a man used to be practicing medicine and decides to walk away from it when they realize it is not their path in life. This is the same Sanjay Shah Denmark that worked as an accountant for some of the biggest investment banks out there in Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley. More important than all of that is his family.
It is safe to say he would do anything to help his family and make their lives a little bit easier. He would move mountains and go above and beyond to help his family. He loves them more than anything in the world. That is why him and his wife Usha have devoted so much time, energy, and resources to Autism Rocks, which was started in 2004. It is an event that features music from some of the top performers in the industry, games, and other ways to keep the whole family having a good time. It also raises donations for research into autism. It is a brilliant idea and it comes from a brilliant man.
Past performs at the event include such big names as the late, great Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Michael Bublè and Drake. This year, Sanjay wife has mentioned she is looking for a more youthful vibe and to appeal to the younger crowd. The more they know about autism, the better understanding there can be for children with autism. That is why Flo Rida and Tyga are going to be performing at this year’s event. So far, they have raised over £600,000 at this event.
Even more than that, they have made people’s lives a little bit easier and given them something to smile about and they have given them some positivity at a time when they need it the most.

In the current political climate, rumors tend to spread quickly, running through news websites and on televised reports so quickly that no one has a chance to even catch their breath, let alone double check on the authority of the sources behind them. One recent rumor that has spread like wildfire has to do with left-learning billionaire George Soros. In this rumor, Soros has the deep pockets behind funding for the “Black Lives Matter” movement. The only trouble is, there isn’t any truth behind this much-reported story.
A recent story in “The Daily Beast” dissected the background behind the Black Lives Matter rumor and found no base for the much-repeated story of George Soros funding the movement and its associated protests. All this, despite its being reported on major media including Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor.”
The rumors regarding Soros’ supposed funding of several Black Lives Matter political protests (which disrupted speeches by both Jeb Bush and Bernie Sanders) have been repeated so much they are reaching the level of conspiracy theories, and they even include a specific number ($33 million) which Soros supposedly paid in funding for the organization.
According to Ken Zimmerman, who is the director of U.S.programs at Soros’ Open Society Foundation, there is nothing to the rumors, and he is at a loss to even reconstruct how the rumors got started. Soros’ Open Society Foundation is involved with funding an array of broad issue charities, including funding for the Drug Policy Alliance, but again, it has not directly funded Black Lives Matter at https://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/people/george-soros.
Zimmerman also pointed out that there isn’t really any way to directly fund a group like Black Lives Matter, which right now is a rather amorphous political movement, and he is at a loss to understand how anyone got the idea that George Soros and his Foundation did. He also made it clear that Soros is most definitely not in the business of paying for political protests.
One of the most important aspects of a child’s development is their education. While it is the kids that spend all of the time in the classroom, most parents want to be as involved in the educational process as possible. Unfortunately, this is often very challenging for a parent that has to hear all information from their child as opposed to the teacher.
In order to bridge the communication gap, many parents, teachers, students, and school districts could take advantage of the services and products available through Class Dojo. Class Dojo is an online platform that aims to connect parents to teachers and school administration. The communication platform will work off an application that can be used on any tablet or smartphone device. Some of the services that the platform and application can provide can include the ability to read teacher reviews of syllabus each day, a list of homework assignment due and upcoming tests, school schedule, and even up to date grades. This will help to ensure that all parents are fully aware of how exactly each student is doing and will create a positive culture with classrooms and schools.
Class Dojo has recently unveiled a new product and application that will continue to enhance the educational and school experience for all students.
For example, after a student has completed an assignment, drawn a picture, or written a story, they will be able to take a picture of what they have created and have it uploaded directly to the website. This will then allow a parent to see the assignment real time to ensure that they are aware of what their child is learning in class.
This technology will likely expand in the coming years as Class Dojo will look for new ways to use the video and picture uploading technology. One way that they could use it would be by uploading homework assignments to a teacher from a phone of tablet. The teacher will then have an electronic copy handy at all times. This will help to reduce the reliance on paper while also ensuring better record keeping.
If people know anything about Wendy “Wengie” Huang, it is that she loves her cats and that she loves rainy days! Fans of her channel were in for a surprise when her boyfriend, Max, took hold of the camera on a dreary Australia day when everyone’s favorite Aussie was sick in bed.
Beginning the video with their energetic cats, Mikki and Mia, Max showed viewers just why Wengie has kept him around for so long. Providing followers with a glimpse of the sushi and coffee that he brought his sick girlfriend, Max proceeded to enter the blogger’s bedroom where she was found snuggled up and sleeping away her illness. As she smelled her delicious, warm coffee, she began to perk up and the show then moved to her adorable living room.
As the humans began munching on their brunch, Max decided that it was time for Mikki and Mia to have their meal as well. Soupy wet food was opened and before Max could even begin putting the food into their dishes, little Mia jumped up on it and spilled some of its contents! Through laughter, the food was distributed after the cats were asked to do their infamous trick: Give a high five! The kittens were then able to eat their Royale Appetizer feast.
As if followers could not fall more in love with Wengie and Max’s cats, they preciously ate their food using their paws from time to time. Loud cooing noises came from Wengie who was occupying a space on the floor wrapped up in a blanket and surely from viewers, too.

“Money Monster” is a 2016 film starring George Clooney that features how Wall Street operates as a backdrop.
Although the movie is fictional and features a major actor, much of what is shown in the film is very close to the reality of Wall Street and economics in general, something that economist Brad Reifler knows a lot about.
Reifler is the CEO of Forefront Capital and has spent a large portion of his career learning how to help the wealthiest Americans learn how to keep their wealth and even augment it. But he has since changed his tune and decided to focus on middle-class Americans and teaching them how to properly invest and grow their wealth in the same way that the 1% have always done.
When speaking, Reifler made note of three major problems that regular people, who would be small investors, run into. The first one is fees, which are always present on Wall Street and since most firms charge large fees the average person wouldn’t be able to afford them but the brokers would not be affected. The second problem is the access to investments, meaning that small investors have limited options while accredited investors have unlimited choices and can invest in private funds and equity. The final problem is the risk in the Stock Market, meaning that since small investors don’t have a lot of options the ones they do have are tied to the Stock Market’s performance. However, Reifler has taken it upon himself to give some power to middle-class American so they can learn these secrets.
Brad Reifler is a wealthy entrepreneur who attended and graduated from Bowdoin College and the founding of Forefront Capital is his biggest claim to fame. Prior to this, the very first business that he started was called the Reifler Trading Company, which was also a trading and financing business. He was also the president and CEO of another company that he created called Pali Capital, starting 1995 and lasting all the way until 2008.
