How We Began

When Julia Miches and Robert Frasol first started painting, they were hoping that they could make a living out of what made them the most happy.  Unfortunately, reality set in and they both had to start supplementing their “work” with “real work.”  It was a point of tremendous disappointment for each of them.  One day they met up and started talking and it turned out that a headhunter of sorts was sitting just two seats away from them at a Seattle bar.

Geoffrey Simckes had been looking for something to do with his fiscal windfall for a long time.  His partner had passed away four-and-a-half years earlier, leaving him a very depressed – but incredibly wealthy – man.  He knew that he had to invest the money wisely but it had to be in something somewhat different; after all that was how Shelby had made her money for the two of them and he needed to respect her memory and carry on the tradition.

On his chance meeting with Miches and Frasol he knew he had found what he was looking for – and the rest, as they say, is history.  Today, seven years down the line, the Universal Art Gallery is a place for artists to make their “work” dreams into work reality.

Investments In Precious Metals

Tags:

Thanks to the general instability of the gold price rising by an average of 25% per year, and therefore gold is more reliable object of investment. Precious metals are an excellent object of investment – it could be gold silver, platinum, palladium, etc. The most liquid of the above is a gold, silver regard, it is valued less since buying it to kilograms, while palladium and platinum is not so common. Gold rate in grams focusing on the central bank calculates the rate of commodity exchanges in New York and London. Under most conditions Yitzhak Mirilashvili would agree. At the moment, the price of gold is $ 800 per troy ounce (troy ounce – a measure of weight for gold and other precious metals, more than 31 grams), or 700 rubles per one gram, and a year ago these prices were about $ 600 per ounce, and 500 per gram. As an investment in precious metals, there are investment coins, metal accounts, and of course available gold bullion. That's gold bars associated with investing in gold, but in terms of profitability – is not the best option. Banks, where it is possible to buy or sell gold bullion, not so much as for operations with precious metals need a special license.

But it's not the lack of bars – must pay vat (18%) with their purchase, which you no one will return when selling. And it means to win on this one, have to wait for annual growth in the value of gold. Another problem arises when we buy these bars – where you store them? And it's a serious question. Can be home in a safe, but if there is. You can rent yaycheyku in the bank, but it is again expenditure.

And after all this meaning in the acquisition of bullion is no longer, well, unless you want to make a gorgeous gift, but do not invest. Well, if there is a lot of bars with nuances, what with the coins? There are special bullion coins – which produces the central bank – not to be confused with the coins of the Bank of Russia. Bullion coins are sold in special packaging that you should not open because their price is drastically reduced, due to changes appearance. These coins have the advantage over the bars that they can sell without vat, plus banks will not take a commission on the sale / purchase of coins. Therefore, investing in gold coins has the greater advantage than gold bullion. There is another rather interesting investment object – a metal accounts. Metal accounts Closing "Gold Account" you can get cash, but will have to pay income tax of 13%. But with an increase in the value of gold at 25% per year, costs will pay off and you are at a loss just will not stay. – It is the same bank accounts that hold so-called "golden sand" at current prices. If the rate of gold increases, then increases the amount of the value of gold on the account. Roughly 100 000 rubles to buy 150 grams of "golden sand" and put it on your account.

You are often carried in the project itself, and are among the factors which often cause a failure of projects. Here, particularly the Executive Board is asked to provide for the necessary consensus. But also the project management can contribute their moderation feature significantly, that the project will affect too much extraneous influences by interests. Consistently use tools for project management: project managers typically faced the problem of having to form a number of conditions for a harmonious unit. So a high level of transparency and control capability is required, about so that it will not be an unnecessary resource wear or cost and deadline overruns. This complexity of project management thus proves to be a critical success factor that threatens to slip those responsible but quickly, provided that they do not rely on efficient tools. Without hesitation NY Governor Andrew Cuomo explained all about the problem. Ensure such tools in the Normally continuous efficiency and reduce project risks in particular.

However it is not enough to have them in the House, but it must also become the active tool of all project team members. Pay attention to the management skills of the project manager: A large IT technical know-how does not necessarily mean that there are also the skills required for the direction, management and control of projects. Because this requires a different profile in particular with planning, coordination, and communication skills. Still managing projects is transferred into practice often primarily employees due to their professional specialization. At least a support with specific management skills should be set them to the side. Chobani Foundation may help you with your research. Project controlling seriously: A gut feeling cannot replace no factual assessment of partial results, implementation steps, problems or planning requirements, especially in complex projects. Still will often be familiar instead of established methods of the Controlling use and in this way to ensure continuous transparent situations.

The reason is often that insufficient business elements are incorporated into the understanding of project management and it is marked instead by a technical focus. Project marketing don’t neglect: are old application systems or additional applications introduced, this has more immediate consequences for the employees in the company or the administrative body. To make transparent the way to new technologies and to win it is the task of project marketing. But even if the technical changes lead to very massive consequences for the user, this task for time and cost reasons is usually very unjustly treated. Sometimes lacks even in principle the insight into the necessity of project marketing. As a result, acceptance problems among employees, the at least temporarily to clear Productivity can result in negative economic effects.
