Important American Artists and a San Francisco
Private Collection at Michaan’s in May

Michaan’s presents extraordinary opportunities to collectors on Saturday, May 11. Top names and rising stars in fine art are a focus. Estate jewelry set with fine old diamonds is a leading attraction. The selection of art and artifacts from Asia, Africa and Europe is outstanding. Michaan’s May Gallery Auction lots, culled from private collections and elite estates, promise exciting discoveries in every category.

David Hockney, Wayne Thiebaud and Richard Diebenkorn are among the featured artists. Works by these California artists of international renown are favored by museums, investors and private collectors, and Michaan’s specialist Susan Paffrath anticipates great interest in these lots. Exciting 20th century American paintings also include works by Cecil Crosley Bell (1906-1977)) and his contemporary Gertrude Abercrombie (1909-1977), two artists in increasingly high demand whose works have sold very well at Michaans. Abercrombie’s Surrealist paintings were the subject of a weighty 2018 book and buzzworthy exhibition at New York’s Karma gallery. Her “Still Life with Carnations” is estimated at $12,000-$18,000, her “Snail Shell” at $5,000-$7,000.

The wry, brilliant “Children Generals” ($15,000-$20,000) by Tang Zhigang (b. 1959) is a leading highlight of the May sale. Tang spent a decade creating propaganda art for the Chinese army. His paintings comment on bureaucracy and the military with great charm and sly humor. The impressionistic “Old Singapore Shophouses” by Tan Choh Tee (b. 1942) is offered at $10,000-$15,000 and the watercolor “Market Place, 1980” by Singaporean Kim Seng Ong is estimated at $2,000-$3,000.

Two lithographs by John Lennon, signed and numbered, were printed from a portfolio known as “Bag One” depicting John and Yoko in their early married life. When the Bag One portfolio debuted at the London Arts Gallery, New Bond Street in 1970, the exhibition was raided by police who confiscated eight of the original artworks on the grounds of indecency. Each of the John Lennon lithos offered by Michaan’s is estimated at $1,000-$2,000. Pop culture buffs will also be intrigued by two original Charles Schulz “Peanuts” strips, offered at $8,000-$12,000 each. Many original Peanuts strips are preserved in the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, located just north of the San Francisco Bay Area in Santa Rosa.

The rare tintype of a fascinating 19th century American, Mary Edwards Walker, is a cultural artifact of the Civil War, the women’s suffrage movement and LGBTQ history. Walker’s unconventional life, a life of service to her country, is described in extensive biographical notes in the auction catalog, presented by Michaan’s specialist Jill Fenichell. The tintype featuring Mary Edwards Walker is estimated at $3,000-$5,000.

A top furniture highlight in Michaan’s May Gallery Auction is the fabulous “Chan” etched and patinated bronze coffee table by Philip and Kelvin Laverne. Laverne designs are coveted for Mid Century, Hollywood Regency and Haute Bohemian interiors, and the Chan table would make a smashing centerpiece in a minimalist living room. Michaan’s has been a leading resource for Laverne tables, their popularity and value skyrocketing in recent years.

From a private San Francisco collection, Michaan’s is privileged to offer fine Italian furnishings and decorative arts, Himalayan bronze deities and figures of Buddha, Art Deco furniture, fine Chinese pottery and many more delights too numerous to mention. The Japanese pictorial “Tale of Genji” screen and the dazzling pair of antique carved Moroccan doors are typical of the consignor’s fine taste and imaginative eye. Inspired by the diversity and international scope of this rare offering, Michaan’s specialists anticipate great interest and welcome inquiries by phone or email (visit

Diamonds are abundant in May’s selection of fine jewelry and timepieces presented by Michaan’s specialist and GIA gemologist Elise Coronado. Period estate pieces include the French Edwardian diamond, platinum and gold pendant necklace ($6,000-$8,000). The coral, turquoise, diamond and gold brooch ($600-$800) by Dessin, Paris will beguile collectors of vintage fine jewelry with its whimsical design of a turbanned cat with his hookah. From the design house of Raymond Yard, who created jewels for Rockefellers, Vanderbilts and DuPonts, Coronado presents a stunning retro accessory set for ladies. This diamond, ruby and 14k gold treasure is estimated at $5,000-$7,000. A brooch dating to the turn of the 20th century is set with old European cut and old mine cut diamonds ($4,000-$6,000). Jewelry is a top draw at each of Michaan’s monthly auctions, attracting collectors of everything from Native American silver and turquoise to contemporary designer wristwatches. Gemstone rings never disappoint, such as the Victorian 14k yellow gold ring set with nine old mine-cut diamonds totalling approximately two carats and the star ruby ring with diamonds set in platinum, each estimated at $2,000-$3,000.

Michaan’s Asian art department offers many exemplary pieces and decorative delights in May. Famille rose porcelain of exquisite quality is a highlight. The carved bamboo birdcage ($1,000-$1,200) would be right at home in a Tony Duquette-inspired interior, as would the 52-inch tall lacquered wood guardian figure, a formidable presence in the auction gallery ($5,000-$7,000). Treasures of cloisonne, bronze and jade are offered. The Lingbi scholar’s rock is estimated at $1,500-$2,000.

Consultant Presenting Three Steps To Becoming a Business Influencer During Networking Event, April 30

The photo shows Mr. Ganguly

Mr. Ganguly has helped small businesses grow and prosper. He brings to clients a wealth of experience acquired over the years solving business problems. His topic is “A Healthy Network = A Healthy Network.”

Alameda Center invited Business Consultant Shoumo Ganguly to explain the concept of "influencer marketing" and discuss how executives build this capability.

Business Consultant Shoumo Ganguly is our guest speaker, and he is going to share proven concepts for building healthy, professional networks. He will discuss how to become a business influencer.””

— Junel Harrell-Hutchinson, Director of Community Development

PERTH AMBOY , NEW JERSEY , UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, April 25, 2019 / — PThe Alameda Center for Rehabilitation & Healthcare is hosting a premier networking event on Tuesday, April 30 beginning at 6 p.m. The evening, which includes light refreshments and hors d ’overs, will be held in the Alameda Center at 303 Elm Street in Perth Amboy.

The program – Alameda Springs Forward – is a meet-and-greet event for building new relationships and energizing existing ones. Owners of local companies are encouraged to attend as well as executives in healthcare, banking, real estate, hospitality, marketing and many business sectors. Admission is free and attendees are encouraged to pre-register at Alameda Springs Forward April Networking Event on the Eventbrite website.

Alameda Center’s Director of Community Development Junel Harrell-Hutchinson said, “We are providing a venue for business people to grow their networks. Business Consultant Shoumo Ganguly is our guest speaker, and he is going to share proven concepts for building healthy, professional connections and becoming a business influencer.”

Mr. Ganguly is a member of the Board of Directors at the Woodbridge Metro Chamber of Commerce. He is also a Business Counselor at the Small Business Development Center at Rutgers University in New Brunswick.

As the founder and president of Obligent Consulting, Mr. Ganguly has helped small businesses grow and prosper. He brings to clients a wealth of experience acquired over the years solving business problems. His topic is “A Healthy Network = A Healthy Network.”

“The value of a business seminar is enhanced when the organizers build in an opportunity to network,” Mr. Ganguly explains. And, he says, the process of developing that relationship cannot be hurried.

“A tree takes its own time to grow,” he says. “A forest of trees – your network of relationships – takes even longer. So it makes sense to be strategic in your approach to networking.

“Speed networking can get you connected to a large population,” said Mr. Ganguly. “Our session will help you build up influence. Influence has value. You can almost take it to the bank. You have all heard of the phrase ‘influencer marketing’, right? So how do you get there?”

To that end, Mr. Ganguly will outline three key elements for reaching that desired outcome:
• The strategy behind building up an authentic, trusted network of influence.
• Some of the techniques that would make the strategy happen.
• The tools to implement the techniques.

“By the time you leave,” Ganguly says, “you would be empowered to start building your influencer status by building a healthy, authentic and trusted network.”

Ms. Harrell- Hutchinson said the networking evening is designed to serve the Alameda Center’s goal of strengthening its long-term alliance with Perth Amboy’s businesses, professionals and civic leaders.
Guests may also R.S.V.P. for the event directly by emailing Ms. Harrell-Hutchinson at

Royston Carr Asset Management Comments as Australian Economy Weakens

Royston Carr Asset Management – Australia’s economy suffers as consumption cools and house prices slump.

TAIPEI, TAIWAN, April 25, 2019 / — In 2009, while the rest of the world battled through the worst of the financial crisis, Australia’s economy beat expectations to become the world’s top performing economy.

Making history in the first quarter of 2009, Australia’s GDP outperformed any other country in the developing world, expanding by 1.1% when most economists had predicted a contraction. In 2009 Australia’s annualized GDP reached 1.5% which was the highest growth out of all the countries belonging to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

A decade later, however, and prospects for Australia’s economy are darkening with analysts at Royston Carr Asset Management citing falling real estate prices and weak consumption as reasons for the country’s economic woes. Forecasts for Australia’s economic growth were slashed after a dismal end to 2018 when a strong labor market was unable to offset the impact of downward pressures.

Economists are predicting that Australia’s economy will expand by 2.2 percent this year, down from the 2.7 percent predicted previously.

Royston Carr Asset Management analysts say the economic slowdown may be severe enough to prompt the Reserve Bank of Australia to cut interest rates that are already sitting at a record low.

Australia’s government has already committed to implementing monetary stimulus during the course of this year in an effort to help boost the flailing economy.

It is hoped that a series of planned tax cuts and a boost in infrastructure spending will help to prop up the demand on which Australia’s economy is so heavily reliant.

Second Judge rules Wells Fargo must submit to discovery related to computer “glitch” that led to unjust foreclosures

Judges in Ohio and New York believe a credible cause of action against Wells exists

CLEVELAND, OHIO, UNITED STATES, April 25, 2019 / — DannLaw attorneys seeking to hold Wells Fargo accountable for a “computer glitch” that caused hundreds of borrowers to lose their homes, scored a second major legal victory against the scandal-plagued bank yesterday when Warren County, Ohio Common Pleas Court Judge Donald E. Oda II granted the law firm’s petition to compel Wells to submit to discovery. Earlier this year Acting Madison County New York Supreme Court Justice Donald F. Cerio, Jr. issued a similar ruling in DannLaw’s favor. Company attorneys vehemently opposed both discovery motions and are currently appealing the New York order.

“As expected Wells, which has a long history of concealing it’s illegal, unethical and immoral acts is desperately trying to stop us from obtaining the evidence we need to pursue claims on behalf of families whose lives were destroyed when the bank unjustly foreclosed on their homes,” DannLaw founder and former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann said. “We’re gratified that both Judge Oda and Acting Justice Cerio recognized that we should be permitted to move forward with discovery because credible causes of action against Wells clearly exist.”

In Ohio, DannLaw is representing Ethan Ryder of Cincinnati who lost his home in a short sale after Wells rejected his application for a loan modification. Like hundreds of other borrowers across the nation, he received a “we’re sorry” letter from the bank in September of 2018. In the letter, Wells acknowledged that Mr. Ryder’s application for a loan mod should have been granted. The bank also offered him a small financial settlement.

In New York, DannLaw is representing Jose Aguilar who lost his home and his family because of the glitch. His story was the subject of in an in-depth report on the CBS Morning News which may be viewed by clicking here. Both Mr. Ryder and Mr. Aguilar rejected Wells’ settlement offer and are preparing to seek just compensation via the courts.
In both cases, DannLaw has asked the courts to order discovery before a lawsuit has been filed because Wells adamantly refuses to voluntarily turn over information related to the computer glitch. In his ruling Jude Oda noted that DannLaw had met the criteria for pre-suit discovery established in Ohio Civil Rule 34:

“The Court finds the Petition has sufficiently set forth such allegations as are required to survive a motion to dismiss. Specifically, the discovery is necessary to ascertain the identity of a potential adverse party, the petitioner is otherwise unable to bring the contemplated action, and the petitioner made reasonable efforts to obtain voluntarily the information from Wells Fargo.

The petitioner will be allowed to conduct limited discovery as provided by the rule.”

“We believe discovery will expose the depth and breadth of Wells’ willful negligence, the steps the bank took to conceal it, and their attempts to coerce victims into accepting settlements that were woefully inadequate,” DannLaw Attorney Brian Flick who heads the firm’s Cincinnati Office said. “We expect Wells to obfuscate and delay, but we have the law on our side so we’re confident we’ll obtain the information we need no matter how hard the bank fights to keep it hidden.”

About DannLaw. DannLaw, founded and managed by former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann, is one of the nation’s leading consumer/mortgage lending/disability rights law firms. DannLaw maintains offices in Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati, Ohio, Chicago, Illinois, and Newark, New Jersey.

Along with helping clients pursue claims under a wide range of consumer and disability rights laws, the firm’s attorneys are among the few in the nation who regularly use the federal Real Estate Sales Practices Act and the Truth in Lending Act to hold mortgage servicers, big banks, debt collectors, and other entities in the financial services industry accountable for abusing, scamming, and cheating borrowers. To date, DannLaw has secured millions of dollars in compensation for victims of financial fraud and helped thousands of people save their homes from foreclosure.

Hard Money Expert Witness: Trust Deed Investments (Part 2 of 2)

Part 2 of a 2 part article on trust deed investments. Part 1 was released 4/22/19.

You make a separate decision with each trust deed investment.”

— Joffrey Long

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, April 25, 2019 / — Will I get a year-end statement for tax reporting?

Yes, at the end of the year, we send you a 1098 form, indicating the amount of interest received that year. (Except for IRA and 401K accounts, in which case you will receive a regular statement of total interest received.)

If I like this type of investment and this loan pays off, can I instruct you to retain the funds in your trust account, and just “roll it over” into the next good loan?

No. Although we are happy to have you re-invest your funds with us, well-written laws require us to hand the money back to you, even if you intend to hand it back the next day for another loan. We are only allowed to receive funds from you for a specific, identified loan or fractionalized interest in a loan. This way, when a loan is paid off, you clearly see what happened with the loan. You make a separate decision with each trust deed investment.

What if I need the money later, and I want to sell my share of the investment?

It could be difficult or impossible. Investments in trust deeds are generally not liquid and there is no guarantee that there would be a buyer for your share. There have been circumstances where our trust deed investors have wanted to sell shares, and due to being in a good market where there was a strong demand for trust deeds, they were able to sell their shares to other existing investors in the same loan, but please don’t rely on this happening.

What happens if the borrower doesn’t make payments?

If a borrower defaults on the payments or on their other obligations to us, we:

• communicate with the borrower and attempt to find ways to resolve the situation
• If nothing can be resolved, we begin the foreclosure process by having a notice of default filed
• as the loan servicer, we monitor the situation and inform investors of the foreclosure process.

What if we take back the property?

In the worst situations, a foreclosure is commenced, there are no other bidders at a foreclosure sale, and we acquire the property at the foreclosure sale. If this were to occur, we have a series of procedures that we follow to take back the property, re-sell it, or if the investors elect, retain it as rental property. If a foreclosure of the property is completed, the investors become the owners of the foreclosed collateral, and decide to sell or lease the property, depending on the market at the time of foreclosure.

For more information about this process, please contact me.

What if the borrower doesn’t pay the insurance or taxes on the property?

We monitor these and if either are unpaid, we evaluate the overall decision and make a recommendation to the investors as to whether or not funds should be advanced to cover these items. If investors advance funds, these amounts are added to the principal balance and the investors earn interest on the funds at their rate of return.

Who is Southwest Bancorp?

Southwest Bancorp is a mortgage lender and loan servicer licensed by the Calif. Dept. of Real Estate, Broker License # 00898122. Southwest Bancorp has been in business since 1981 and located at the present location since 1992. Joffrey Long is the President, Owner, and Broker of Record for Southwest Bancorp. Joffrey has been in the mortgage industry since starting Southwest Bancorp in 1981. He invests in trust deeds and retains a portion of each trust deed offered to investors. He is a member of the Education Committee and the Board of Directors of the Calif. Mortgage Association, the trade association for hard money lenders. He frequently testifies in court as a Private Money Expert Witness on the standard of care and practices for mortgage lenders, brokers and loan servicers. (Joffrey Long’s Broker license # is 00525142 / issued 1979.)

What about your “trust account,” where the monthly payments are deposited?” How do I know your trust account is ok?

There are two simple ways that you can verify our trust account:

In California, there are approximately 300 real estate brokerage companies (of which we are one) that comply with the requirement that loan brokerage companies who make or arrange a certain number of loans and who act as a loan servicer for multi-lender loans, file “Threshhold, Multi-Lender” reports. Threshhold multi-lender companies must file quarterly reports with the California Bureau of Real Estate, Loan Activities Division. These reports must be reviewed by a CPA, where the CPA firm checks our trust account bank statements and documentation from certain transactions. If a threshold multi-lender company fails to file the quarterly reports or files reports with unresolved deficiencies, it would ultimately show on the Dept. of Real Estate website. The Dept of Real Estate takes relatively quick action against companies that fail to file or file deficient or non-compliant reports.

• You can request a copy of our latest, (or several of our latest) CPA Reviewed reports that were submitted to the Dept. of Real Estate.

• If you desire, we can authorize our CPA firm to speak with you if you have questions or want to verify information. A lot of cost and effort goes into having these reports completed, so we’re pleased to have more people reading them!

These methods don’t provide a guarantee as to the status of our trust account but provide you with some verification. Although it is unlikely this would occur, you could conduct your own audit of our trust account or appoint your own accountant to conduct such an audit.

Please let me know if there is any doubt or question about any aspect of the investment before providing funds. IMPORTANT: Nothing in this document represents a standard of care, or normal required practices in the industry. Primarily, it describes the procedures used at our company for certain investments in certain loans. We do not represent that we follow these same procedures for every loan or every investment. The circumstances or correct procedures may vary depending on type of investment, the company providing the investment, or the investor circumstances or how investor capital is raised. Before considering any trust deed investment, consult with qualified advisors, obtain complete, written disclosures, investigate the trust deed, as well as the company or brokerage offering the investment, before investing. Southwest Bancorp is a licensed real estate broker and generally funds and closes loans with its own money, acting primarily as a wholesale hard money lender. Then it offers/re-sells the loans, or interests in the loans to private investors.

David Jordan and Dr. Peter Mullarkey Bring Deep Network Expertise to HOPZERO Development Team

We are excited to have engineers with incredible track records of achievement and deep knowledge of computer networks join our efforts to transform information security”

— Ben Haley

AUSTIN, TX, USA, April 25, 2019 / — HOPZERO Corporation, creator of HopSphere Radius Security, announced that David Jordan and Dr. Peter Mullarkey, have joined the company to accelerate development of its innovative approach to limit data travel, securely keeping critical information within the networks of enterprises, governments and military installations.

Mr. Jordan comes to HOPZERO from Packet Design, the leading company for monitoring network route analytics, where he was a key member of the engineering team. Prior to that he worked at NetQoS where he developed the engine of first real-time, agentless Application Performance Monitoring tool, SuperAgent. He also developed the first truly scalable NetFlow data collector for analyzing and reporting on enterprise-wide network traffic. Mr. Jordan was recognized as a NetQoS Fellow for his contributions and has been awarded multiple patents for high performance computing. He holds a Master of Engineering degree from Cornell University.

Dr. Mullarkey has been awarded patents in signal analysis including, detection of network anomalies for his work at Schlumberger and NetQoS. At NetQoS he was a key member for the research team, including leading the use of NetFlow data to detect network intruders. NetQoS recognized Dr. Mullarkey as a NetQoS Fellow for his achievements. Dr. Mullarkey also was a founder of Rocksteady, a developer of VPN solutions to secure enterprise communications. He also developed advanced simulation technology at Maxager Technology that developed software for manufacturing data analysis using profit velocity concept. Dr. Mullarkey earned his PhD from Carnegie-Mellon University.

“We are excited to have engineers with incredible track records of achievement and deep knowledge of computer networks join our efforts to transform information security,” said Ben Haley, founder and SVP of engineering at HOPZERO. “We have seen and felt the threats posed by cyber attacks. HOPZERO has a revolutionary vision to stop these attacks. David and Peter are incredibly prepared and possess the ability and creativity to help HOPZERO scale to achieve that vision.”

HOPZERO has created an intelligent data control system to classify and protect data that should stay inside an organization, out of reach from outside or inside cyber criminals. The system protects information, and prevents data exfiltration, with a virtual perimeter. Attempts to breach that perimeter are blocked and an alert issued indicating precisely where the attack came from and what they were after for rapid remediation.

The patent-pending solution provides “a clean approach to lowering attack surface,” says Dr. Harry Saal, Founder of Network General and former Director Stanford Linear Accelerator Center SLAC.

HOPZERO is the pioneer of a revolutionary SaaS solution securing information by controlling the distance it can travel – where compromised data self-destructs. HOPZERO “puts data on a leash”, long enough to do business yet short enough to prevent compromise. HOPZERO is headquartered in Austin, Texas.

Shopin的首席执行官兼创始人Eran Eyal分享道:“封闭式循环数据生态系统成功的秘诀之一在于对消费者的独特理解以及奖励和广告机制。由于在精准营销,个性化和广告方面的协同作用,这为实现巨额收入创造了机会。我们正在与Blockwell合作,将开放的零售网络转变为同一个生态系统。“


Eyal补充道,“零售商运营的忠诚计划与其广告生态系统之间并没有很强的联系。这太奇怪了。两者都是吸引消费者注意力的工具,为什么它们分得那么开?此外,忠诚积分锁死在了一个零售商中。 Shopin的目标是将它们融合成一个连贯的参与度工具,同时将这些营销资金带回给零售商和消费者。“

“拥有流动性来奖励你可核实的回报有着不可估量的价值,而目前的情况是,你的奖励存储在某个数据库中,由某个公司所控制,要求你与之互动,并完全控制着你的兑换。 Shopin和Blockwell通过Shopin代币将消费者和零售经济从这些限制中解放出来。你曾经放弃了这种自由,现在我们一起把自由带回来。“Blockwell首席执行官Josh说道。








Shopin是BTC迈阿密(北美比特币大会),CoinAgenda Global和Bitcoinference 2018的获奖者。


Blockwell是一系列建立在以太坊的链,用于扩展以太坊。 它们为企业和企业家提供了构建模块,为现实世界创建了令牌化产品和收入流。 我们提供以代理人为中心的代币技术,跨链交换(无gas费用)实用程序API,保管钱包,去中心化应用程序生成器和预先审核的智能合约,由我们的不可篡改的收入分成执行智能许可证提供支持,以确保您始终获得公平的收入分成。

我们的使命是奖励创造价值的每个人,帮助自己帮助网络,并帮助全世界进入这个改变游戏规则的新基础设施。Shopin的R.I.D.E. 和品牌代币一同展示了一个超越平均界限的真实世界用例。 我们迫不及待地想看看他们还会推出什么
