Amended Complaint Filed Against LaidLaw & Company

 

An amended complaint was recently filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada against Laidlaw & Company by Relmada Therapeutics. Relmada claims that Laidlaw & Company disclosed confidential information that was acquired when Laidlaw was serving as their investment banker.
In the initial complaint made by Relmada, a restraining order was filed against Laidlaw and its principals, Matthew Eitner and James Ahern. Relmada’s board claims that false materials were distributed by the investment bankers and they should be properly compensated for the damages.
Laidlaw had served as the primary investment banker for Relmada since 2011 and in the spring of 2015 they engaged in talks about Relmada attracting new investors. In working to achieve this goal Laidlaw set up a non-deal road show in April of 2015. Upon the conclusion of the road show, Relmada expressed dissatisfaction to Laidlaw with both the organization of these events and the interactions with potential investors. As a response, Laidlaw sent out a letter which contained confidential information regarding Relmada’s efforts to raise capital and interactions with potential investors.
Since the letter containing confidential information was made public Relmada’s stock has seen a dramatic decline, going from $4.03 per share down to $1.65 per share. This makes for a significant argument that the damages to Relmada and its shareholders are a direct result of the actions of Laidlaw.  Laidlaw & Company has been in the business of investment banking for over 170 years. They currently operate a network of offices in both the United States and Europe. Laidlaw credits themselves with a “think outside the box” approach to investment banking and financial solutions.  CEO Matthew Eitner has been with Laidlaw since 2010 and became CEO in 2011. James Ahern serves as Managing Partner and has also been with the company since 2010.

NutriMost Sets the Record Straight With Rival Brand Healthy Living

 

In recent month, NutriMost health supplement program has had to set the record straight with a rival health brand. Healthy Living is another supplement brand that has an established program, and has recently been misusing the marketing products that NutriMost has created for its own products. In order to keep the information and brands differentiated, it was important to NutriMost that their consumers and new consumers to the brand were able to tell both brands apart.

Weight loss company Nutrimost files lawsuit against rival Healthy Living for allegedly stealing promotional video
The marketing videos of Nutrimost were blatantly taken and used, with products and brand names being switched out. After several attempts to get the rival brand to remove the videos from offending sites, this request was finally respected, but the use of marketing products had already occurred over a considerable amount of time.

NutriMost is a weight loss brand with products that promises consumers a significant amount of weight loss within just forty days. The product requires lifestyle changes, but those along with the products that can be used in your diet will help you achieve the goals that you set for yourself. The company has made headlines because it uses a special kind of technology in order to help consumers achieve the results they are after. Called NRF, the tech analyzes your body’s biological markers that can then be used by doctors to support your weight loss.

For the cook, NutriMost is easily able to fit into your diet by being incorporated into recipes and meals that you already enjoy. Because the brand is so popular with customers, they have spent a lot of time experimenting with the product and creating multitudes of recipes and ideas that are then share in communities. And the communities are a huge part of the NutriMost platform, there are so many people that use it successfully, and they are all willing to share and support each other.

Nutrimost Sues Rival Weight Loss Company For Promotional Video Theft

 

Nutrimost, also known as “The Ultimate Fat Loss System” promises a weight loss of 20-40 pounds in 40 days. Dr. Wisniewski, the diet’s chief advocate, explains that the program utilizes “pastoral medicine” or scriptural based health and the latest technology. By way of a “body balancing scan” it is determined what supplements are needed by the body, as well as the amount of each.

Weight loss company Nutrimost files lawsuit against rival Healthy Living for allegedly stealing promotional video
It is not your fault you can’t lose weight, Nutrimost claims, but chemicals in your food are disrupting hormones and making you gain weight. Knowing this and what supplements you need can bring your hormones into balance, making weight loss easier.

Rival company Healthy Living has made the very same weight loss claims. They were recently accused of pirating a promotional video from Nutrimost. The allegedly stolen video was posted in its entirety on Healthy Living’s website cantlosediet.com, replacing references to Nutrimost with Healthy Living. They kept the same testimonials and even Nutrimost’s Dr. Ray Wisniewski. Instead of removing the video after a cease and desist letter was issued to Healthy Living, they instead replaced it with a shorter version.

Although it appears as though the video has since been removed, Nutrimost has filed a lawsuit to discourage the reappearance of the video on Healthy Living’s website. Also, they are filing for $300,000 for the theft and loss of “goodwill and reputation”.

The Unexpected Twist for NutriMost

I have seen lots of brands grow over the years, but I don’t think that I have seen any gain the type of attention that NutriMost has gained this year. This has been the diet that has sparked a lot of attention among overweight people everywhere that want to make a change in their lives. I believe that this company is going to see a lot more customers now that there is a lawsuit that has been filed.

I believe that there is credible evidence that shows that a company is in the wrong for stealing a promotional video. This company, Healthy Living, is trying to advertise and confuse some customers online that may be looking for the NutriMost plan. It is unfortunate, but that is commonly the way that competition steps into the arena. In many cases competitors will try to duplicate the success of a company that is on top by building and copying what these companies do. It is rare, almost unheard of, however, for a company to totally steal the exact promotional marketing videos of another company. That is what NutriMost has done, and people are curious about how this is going to play out.

Right now Healthy Living executives are back peddling and trying to get out of this situation. The NutriMost system, by contrast, is going with the lawsuit and getting customers to recognize the brand. NutriMost doesn’t want to be confused with Healthy Living.

I think the NutriMost is one of those brands that has managed to secure a lot of customers because there is a guarantee to lose weight. I think that all people like that guarantee, and this is what hooks them in. Others may like the fact that this plan is specific to every individual so the weight loss approach is different.

Variations Of Banana Bread

Bananas seem to turn brown a few hours after they are brought home, not giving you enough time to eat them. There is a recipe that you can make with overripe bananas with several variations that include peanut butter, fresh fruits and even vegetables. Banana bread is often made with walnuts, slices of bananas and a bit of cinnamon or honey. It has a sweet flavor and is delicious with a tall glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee.

One of the recipes features brown butter. It gives the bread a darker color. You can top the bread with brown sugar and cinnamon for more of a dessert bread instead of one that is enjoyed in the morning. Another delicious recipe is strawberry banana bread. You can use either fresh or frozen berries. If you use fresh berries, you don’t need to use as much milk in the batter as the berries have a high water content. Top with whipped cream and sliced almonds for a nice treat.

Another option is chocolate avocado bread. It is made with cocoa powder, which blends well with the bananas, as well as slices of avocados. You can also use slices of zucchini if you don’t like avocados. Children might enjoy peanut butter in a traditional banana bread batter along with a bit of jelly on the bread after it’s cut.

Ways To Use Lemons In The Home

Lemons are often seen as sour and not very tasty unless they are used in a glass of tea or in a dessert. They can be used with other ingredients in some recipes, such as fish or pork. Instead of using lemons with foods and beverages, consider using them for a few other tasks that you need to complete around the home.

When you cut a piece of fruit, such as an apple, you might notice that it turns brown. Using a small wedge of lemon, rub the juice on the half of the fruit that has been cut. This will lock in the flavors and keep the fruit from turning brown. If you don’t want to use cups or bowls to serve ice cream or sorbet, scoop out the fruit of half a lemon, using the rind as the serving dish. You will often notice a hint of lemon in the dessert as well.

The juice from a lemon can be used to polish stainless steel. You don’t have to add the juice to water. All you need to do is cut a lemon in half and rub the juice along the surface of the appliance before rinsing the appliance with water. Lemon juice can also be used to clean silverware and chrome. Place halves of lemons in a bowl of water to clean the microwave. Turn the microwave on for about a minute on high. Leave the bowl inside so that the steam can loosen the food particles on the microwave.

Sweet and Salty Brownies: A Perfect Blend of Flavors

Renato Poliafito and Matt Lewis, founders and owners of the New York bakery Baked, are true brownie artisans. They amazed their clientele in 2005 with the introduction of their stellar Deep Dark Brownie, lauded by Martha Stewart and Oprah Winfrey and specially designed to knock the socks off dark chocolate fans. Now the duo has come up with another chocolate wonder: a sweet-and-salty caramel brownie.
In a recent article in the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/08/dining/salted-caramel-brownies-recipe.html?ref=dining&_r=0), food maven Julia Moskin explained the new brownie’s history. It started out life as Baked’s Sweet and Salty Cake, a multi-layer crowd-pleaser that’s a perennial favorite at the bakery. But the folks at Baked wanted a similar combination of bittersweet flavor with the rich density of the classic brownie, hand-mixed to maintain the fudgy texture that’s the mark of the truly artisanal brownie. Their creation displays the perfect blend of sweet-and-salty contrast.
Put simply, the Sweet and Salty Brownie consists of brownie batter over which a caramel sauce is drizzled. When the brownies are baked, coarse sugar and flaky salt are sprinkled on top and more caramel sauce is drizzled on. Julia Moskin’s version of the recipe can be found here: http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1018161-salted-caramel-brownies?version=meter+at+0&module=meter-Links&pgtype=article&contentId=&mediaId=&referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2Fpages%2Fdining%2Findex.html%3Fmodule%3DSiteIndex%26region%3DFooter%26pgtype%3Dsectionfront&priority=true&action=click&contentCollection=meter-links-click . The results will astound you, but only if you take the trouble to make a from-scratch caramel sauce and to source a chocolate that contains 60-70% cocoa solids. By the way, don’t let the sound of “homemade caramel sauce” drive you to melting down Kraft caramels. All you need do is cook sugar and corn syrup together, stirring until the mixture attains a golden color (the darker the color, the greater the bittersweet flavor), then add cream.

New Uses for Summer Produce

Delicious and beautiful produce appears in the summer, and it is always appreciated when normal recipes are enhanced to highlight simple and easy ways to “jazz up” such choices as corn, tomatoes, green beans, zucchini, eggplant, watermelon and peaches.

You can go to Food Network to get complete recipes for the suggestions given below along with other ideas.

TOMATOES can be used in so many ways. Consider pairing them with corn in a pasta with a light sauce. Put both tomatoes and PEACHES in salads. Start your meal with a Tuscan Tomato and Bread Soup with whole basil leaves. Stuff large tomatoes with mushrooms and Panko and top with goat cheese and parsley.

EGGPLANT is very versatile. One recipe calls for layering eggplant and cheese between lasagna noodles. Fry and top with tomato sauce.

ZUCCHINI is known to go into breads, and it is also delicious in pancakes.

Mix GREEN BEANS with garlic and capers to dress up this plain vegetable.

Add BLUEBERRIES to coleslaw!

Make a WATERMELON and CUCUMBER salad with onion and goat cheese.

PEACHES can be used in ways too numerous to mention. Make a peach, bacon and Arugula sandwich. Add peaches to a coffee cake batter for an outstanding breakfast or cookout dish.

Your creativity can be endless, as is Food Network’s, and that makes your summer meals different and a joy.

Residents Can Go Back To Work

Residents like David Osio in Venezuela can now go back to working five days a week. They were required to work two days because of an energy crisis. This is a benefit for those who have struggled to provide for their families. While workers were on a two-day week, some companies did pay them, but it’s not like being at work for five days and knowing that you are providing for the family. The water levels have been somewhat restored to the point that the energy crisis has been thwarted. However, if the water levels go back down because of a lack of rain, then there could be another lack of energy in the state. One would think that the state would have other means to supply energy if the water levels remain low for some time, but for Xing.com experts there is not a plan in place in the event that this happens again.

Oprah May Start Her Own Food Line

Talk show host Oprah Winfrey has one of the biggest name brands out there so it should come as no surprise that she wants to now dominate your pantry, refrigerator, and kitchen as well. According to an article on Grubstreet.com, Oprah has already applied for a trademark for her own food product line which she will be calling “Oprah’s Kitchen. This trademark filing was discovered by the “Daily News” who reported that the media queen filed the federal paperwork back in mid-May for her trademark.

The new brand would be a total kitchen takeover by Oprah. There are hundreds of products listed on her application which include items such as: spices, water, lemonade, meats, dairy, preserved foods, processed foods, fish, fresh fruit, vegetables, and baked goods. So, basically all the staples that you would need in your kitchen.

Oprah starting her own food line is not that surprising. The Big O has been a spokeswoman for Weight Watchers for quite sometime. Unfortunately, reports are that the company’s $43 million investment in her endorsement have not been as well received by consumers as they had hoped. There were also rumors floating around last year that Oprah was interested in starting her own organic product line. I’m interested to see what sort of products Oprah will put out and if she will stick to only healthy items.
