A Woman Thriving In The Middle East

Sand Storm in Iraq

Water Plants in Iraq

First women-led water plant project, making a real difference

Ultimately, the economic future of the world rests not only on the ability to strengthen developed economies, but also raising the standard of living of humanity”

— Barbara D'Amato

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Ultimately, the economic future of the world rests not only on the ability to strengthen developed economies, but also raising the standard of living of humanity” expressed Barbara D’Amato, CEO of Trilogy.
Meet the first woman who successfully built bottled water manufacturing plants in the Middle East making headlines not only in the Arab world, but also in the US and global financial markets through her business acumen, humanitarian initiatives and inspirational leadership.
Barbara D’Amato is a lifetime Wall Street banker, a disruptive player in emerging markets, and an avid impact investment entrepreneur.
“Our experience in impact investments dates back to 2004, when challenged to cap raise in Wall Street to build six large-sized water purification and bottling plants in a War Zone in Iraq” Barbara expressed.
Driven by her passion for international markets and her commitment to impact investing, Barbara D’Amato left her long career in Wall Street to sail the unchartered waters as an entrepreneur herself, driving to successful close “projects of global significance” in the Middle East, which were the words she had chosen to describe what today is known as impact investing.
Barbara’s ambition, vision and drive to succeed always led her to capitalize on the opportunities in the marketplace and create value through a combination of global business and impact investment.
But succeeding globally does not happen overnight. In the beginning there was a steep education curve to overcome on both sides of the equation -in the US and in international markets- so her strategic approach to successfully completing cross border transactions had to include a systematic and integrated approach to international engagement of the parties based on mutual goals and objectives. She soon understood the role fear, perception of risk, and lack of familiarity with emerging markets played in the human psychology of most of those who controlled the financial and human capital in the US and the world. However, that did not deter her from getting the work done. She simply refers to that notion as: “Inefficiencies in the market” which will be solved with globalization.
With the financial prowess of Trilogy on their side, a Utah-based group of industrialists -led by social entrepreneurs Phil Morrell, Paul Morrell, and Paul Jeffries- was able to construct and implement the first bottled water manufacturing and production facility ever built by a US company and by the US military in the Middle East at that time. Proudly, she recalls, this was one of the most successful and high impact investing projects she was involved in, building six large scale water plants in a war zone, expanding revenues from $10 million to over $135 million USD annually, employing over 600 Iraqi nationals while creating thousands of local and regional jobs in the process hiring local Iraqi and MENA nationals from 16 different nationalities, cultures and languages; while successfully completing humanitarian efforts providing employment, wages and training for the local Iraqi workforce under a program called Employ Iraq and rebuilding 14 elementary schools under the Path to Prosperity program to rebuild Iraq.
“I got Michael Dell’s private hedge fund company in New York to fund it out of all Wall Street firms that would not touch it. This was a historical, milestone transaction and we did it in what was back then a war zone, at a time when bombs were flying all over the skies of Baghdad” she recalls as she was sitting in the boardroom of MSD Capital ready to sign definitive agreements for funding while the TV played images of Baghdad on CNN.
At a time when impact investing did not exist yet, Trilogy successfully got funded this $400 million USD contract enabling the plants to successfully produce and deliver over 1.8 Billion bottles of water – – potentially out of a pile of toxic mud given the threats of terrorism and in one of the most inhospitable environments on Earth.
Trilogy was instrumental in leveraging from its vast global network and create synergies necessary for the business to thrive by following a methodical approach to project development: Secure the funding, build the local infrastructure, build government and vendor relations, expand into vertical market segments, and ultimately gain a dominant market position in the region achieving higher than market-rate returns while improving the lives of the people and communities in the region.
At the time there were no global water brands with production in Iraq, and no other local producer had ability to consistently deliver quality nor meaningful quantities of water as required by the US Department of Defense. Local competitors were generally undercapitalized, had outdated equipment, or produced significantly inferior quality of water. According to the United Nations only 32% of the Iraqi population had access to clean drinking water and 68% of all drinking water was unsafe in Iraq.
“We are proud of our track record of investment in humanity, bridging the gap between developed and emerging markets, tackling the most pressing global issues, and helping to build sustainable businesses while improving lives, families, and communities” expresses Barbara. “But the work is far from over. We look forward to the hard work and the challenges ahead as we continue to transform the world, only this time, we stand together on a more equitable basis as partners in collaboration” she concludes with pride.
Barbara is a woman who is making a real difference in the world and hopes that many other women will follow in her footsteps.
Barbara has been an outstanding entrepreneur, a catalyst for change, and an inspiration to those who cross her path. Her role has always been to inform and inspire new leaders on social, environmental and economic change through collaborative entrepreneurship.
Trilogy is currently in the process of institutionalizing their impact investing practice through the creation of a woman-led asset manager class under a disciplined emerging fund called: Trilogy Global Impact Fund in order to proactively identify high-yield high-impact investment opportunities to create significant global impact across the value chain.

AMY Advisory Board member Dan McGroarty Publishes Critical Minerals Oped in Investor’s Business Daily

AMY Advisory Board member Dan McGroarty Publishes Critical Minerals Oped in Investor’s Business Daily

AMY Patent Targets Critical Minerals Cobalt, Lithium and Manganese

May 31, 2018 – Vancouver, BC

DATELINE – American Manganese commented today on the inclusion of three of its target metals – lithium, cobalt and manganese – on the U.S. Government’s official Critical Minerals List. The List, mandated by the Presidential Executive Order of December 20, 2017, https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/presidential-executive-order-federal-strategy-ensure-secure-reliable-supplies-critical-minerals/ includes 35 minerals and metals considered “critical to the U.S. economy and national security.”

According to the U.S. Geological Survey’s report on the Critical Minerals List:
• Lithium, Cobalt and Manganese are each one of 9 minerals on the Critical List to meet all 6 of the industrial/defense sector indicators used in its formulation.

• Manganese is one of 14 minerals on the List for which the U.S. is 100% import-dependent, and it is one of 5 minerals to meet all 6 of the industrial/defense sector indicators – and for which China is the leading global producer.
With interest in critical minerals intensifying, AMY Advisory Board member Dan McGroarty, who has testified numerous times before the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives on critical minerals issues, published an oped in Investor’s Business Daily: “For Want of a Nail: It’s Time to Make the Connection Between Critical Minerals and National Defense.”


In the oped, McGroarty notes that:
• 16 of the 35 Critical Minerals appear in a non-classified defense study as "hav[ing] already caused some kind of significant weapon system production delay for DoD."

• For 22 of the 35 listed minerals, China is either the leading global producer, leading U.S. supplier – or both.
“The metals and minerals on which U.S. weapons platforms depend are all too often sourced from foreign suppliers – a vulnerability that America's adversaries could exploit in time of conflict,” McGroarty writes. “Until now, however, awareness of the problem has not produced action anywhere near adequate to reverse or even reduce this dangerous dependency.”

“Dan’s article highlights the new focus on critical minerals as a U.S. Government policy priority,” said Larry Reaugh, CEO of AMY. “In fact, every major industrialized nation is going to need reliable access to cobalt, lithium, manganese and other critical minerals in order to maintain advanced manufacturing, develop alternative energy systems and meet national security needs.”

The U.S. Government’s new focus on critical minerals comes as AMY’s U.S. patent application was published on May 17, 2018. The full press release on the patent — No. WO2018/089595 and titled: PROCESS OF COBALTOUS SULPHATE/DITH-IONATE LIQUORS DERIVED FROM COBALT RESOURCE – is available here:


With the publication of the U.S. Government Critical Minerals List, the U.S. Department of Commerce will now issue a report on recommendations to increase domestic supply of critical minerals no later than August 16, 2018.

About Daniel McGroarty

Dan has consulted for more nearly two decades with firms in the resource sector, with a focus on strategic and critical metals. He has testified to both the House and Senate energy and natural resources committees on critical and strategic materials issues. Prior to establishing his consultancy, Dan served as Special Assistant to the President in the White House and as presidential appointee to two Secretaries of Defense.

CleanCapital Announces Second Acquisition in One Month, Adding 10.2 MW of Operating Solar

10.2 MW of operating solar from G&S Solar

The portfolio of two operating solar projects in Massachusetts leverages the $250 million equity partnership with CarVal Investors

NEW YORK, NY, USA, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — CleanCapital announced a second solar acquisition from G&S Solar, a New York-based developer that builds, develops and operates solar systems in multiple states in the Northeast. The 10.2 MW portfolio comes less than a month after the acquisition of a 14.3 MW portfolio from X-Elio. This new portfolio is comprised of two solar projects located in Massachusetts and consists of high-quality customers including a corporate entity and municipality as the offtakers. CleanCapital’s proprietary platform enabled their ability to execute on these two complex transactions in a short timeframe. The technology, coupled with access to dedicated capital, streamlines and expedites due diligence and analysis, allowing complex deals like these to close efficiently.

Today’s announcement brings CleanCapital’s total to nearly $150m of acquired operating solar assets. It’s an exciting year for the team as they change the paradigm for clean energy finance. Despite the historic growth across the industry, the flow of capital within the space remains largely stagnant. Leveraging their proprietary platform and capital partnerships, CleanCapital is bringing liquidity to a historically capital inefficient clean energy marketplace.

“This is only the beginning. Closing two complex deals on such a short timeline is an exciting next step for us and the clean energy marketplace. We were founded on the principle that we can streamline the complexities of clean energy transactions by leveraging technology, allowing for more capital to enter the sector and accelerating clean energy deployment,” said Marc Garrett, CTO, CleanCapital.

“G&S Solar was pleased to sell a portion of its solar assets in Massachusetts to CleanCapital,” said John Faltings, President of G&S Solar. “Transactions such as this can get bogged down by the complex diligence process but the CleanCapital team was efficient and very professional at managing the acquisition of these operating solar assets. We look forward to working closely with them in the near future.” This deal was brokered on behalf of G&S Solar by Chris Hopgood of Ignite Renewable Capital, LLC.

CleanCapital is a financial technology company that makes it easy to invest in clean energy. They deliver technology solutions to all aspects of the transaction process—from lending to capital raising, origination to diligence. The proprietary technology platform identifies, screens, and manages clean energy projects enabling project owners an opportunity to exit their portfolios while providing accredited investors, including institutional investors, family offices, and investment funds, unique access to the clean energy investment market.

About CleanCapital:

Large oil on Masonite painting by Francis Newton Souza (1924-2002), titled Head in a Landscape ($235,000).

Oil on canvas painting by Mihail Chemiakin (Russian, b. 1943), signed and dated 1990 ($18,700).

Royal Vienna hand-painted porcelain plaque depicting a religious scene, signed “E. Sihade” ($8,525).

Also, three artworks by the Russian artist Mihail Chemiakin (b. 1943) – a painting and two sculptures – combined to bring $44,800 at the May 17th auction.

Internet and phone bidding were both strong, and 75 people attended in person. The sale featured estate jewelry, bronzes, a Philip and Kelvin LaVerne mid-century modern table, porcelains and more.”

— Philip Weiss

LYNBROOK, N.Y., UNITED STATES, May 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — LYNBROOK, N.Y. – A large oil on Masonite painting by the Indian-American artist Francis Newton Souza (1924-2002) climbed to $235,000, and three artworks by the Russian artist Mihail Chemiakin (b. 1943) – a painting and two sculptures – combined to bring $44,800 at an auction held May 17th by Weiss Auctions, online and in the firm’s Lynbrook gallery at 74 Merrick Road.

The Souza painting was by far the top lot of the auction. Titled Head in a Landscape, the work was impressive at 35 inches by 47 ½ inches. It was also completely fresh to the market, making the important estate find that much more attractive to the collectors who were eager to bid on it.

Francis Newton Souza was raised by his dressmaker mother in India and attended art school in Mumbai but was expelled in 1942 for supporting the Quit India Movement. Five years later he helped found the Bombay Progressive Artists’ Group, to encourage young Indian artists to become part of the international avant-garde movement. He moved to London, England in 1949.

There, his work was exhibited at the Institute of Contemporary Art. Souza’s style was rooted in Expressionism but was influenced by Art Brut and Neo-Romanticism. His subjects were often female nudes and Christian imagery but also included still-lifes and landscapes. Souza lived and worked in New York from 1967 until shortly before his death, when he returned home to India.

The auction saw more than 500 lots come up for bid and gross around $600,000, including the buyer’s premium. “Internet and phone bidding were both very strong, and approximately 75 people attended in person,” said Philip Weiss of Philip Weiss Auctions. “The sale featured estate jewelry, bronzes, a Philip and Kelvin LaVerne mid-century modern table, porcelains and more.”

Original artwork, however, dominated the day’s list of top lots. The three pieces by Chemiakin included a 50 inch by 50 inch oil on canvas painting, signed and dated (1990) and an excellent example of his work ($18,700); a 29-inch-tall bronze sculpture from his St. Petersburg Carnival series, signed #2 of 8 ($10,500); and a sterling silver sculpture titled Peter the Great perched on a titled marble pedestal, 37 inches tall and with mounted plaques bearing his signature ($15,600).

Mihail Chemiakin (whose name is also spelled Mikhail Shemyakin) is a Russian painter, stage designer, sculptor and publisher, and a controversial representative of the nonconformist art tradition of St. Petersburg. Chemiakin works in a broad range of media and subjects, as seen in the 2010 two-volume book on his art, Mihail Chemiakin (Azbooka publishers, St. Petersburg).

Following are additional highlights from the auction. Internet bidding was provided by Proxibid, Invaluable.com and Auctionzip.com. All prices quoted here are inclusive of a buyer’s premium.

A lithograph and screenprint in colors on Arches paper by renowned American painter, sculptor and graphic artist Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008), titled People for the American Way (1991), signed lower left, dated and numbered (“44/75”), and housed in a large and heavy 49 inch by 61 inch frame, gaveled for $24,600. It was a new world auction record for a print from that series.

A beautiful and monumental Royal Vienna hand-painted porcelain plaque depicting a religious scene, with an artist’s signature in the lower right appearing to read “E. Sihade”, changed hands for $8,525. The image area was 16 ½ inches by 21 ¼ inches, with an inked beehive mark verso.

A wonderful oil on canvas painting by C. Hjalmar “Cappy” Amundsen (Me./N.Y./Mass, 1911-2001), depicting whalers off the coast in a vivid and colorful marine rendering, brought $6,000. The work, housed in a frame measuring 42 ½ inches by 31 inches, was artist signed lower left.

Philip Weiss Auctions has three big sales lined up for June. The first, slated for Monday, June 11th, will be an on-site auction, to be held in the New York County Public Administrator’s warehouse, at 250 Church Street in Manhattan, starting at 12 noon. Offered will be estate material featuring furniture, paintings, prints, artwork, porcelain, pottery, bronzes, rugs, household bric-a-brac, electronics, musical instruments, lamps, clocks, collectibles and more.

Then, on Wednesday, June 20th, at the Lynbrook gallery, a sale dedicated to toys, trains, battery ops, diecasts, dolls, toy soldiers, pressed steel and more will be held, highlighted by Part 1 of the Kalas Collection but also to include further selections from the Jerry and Nina Green Collection of American and European trains and toys, Part 1 of the massive toy collection of George Dominguez, more of the Pennsylvania “Matchbox Hoard” and a newly arrived doll collection.

The following day, Thursday, June 21st, also in the Lynbrook gallery, Weiss Auctions will hold a sale packed with sports items, comics, comic art, animation and historical material.

Typically, the compensation for these types of people starts at five hundred thousand dollars and can go up dramatically based on how or where they were exposed to asbestos.

There is a direct correlation between having the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys and receiving the best possible financial compensation for a person like an auto, maritime, or energy mechanic and retaining the as the group would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303. The mesothelioma lawyers the Texas Mesothelioma Victims Center recommend are based in Texas and they make house calls. http://Texas.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

It is this information that becomes the foundation for a mesothelioma compensation claim. The specific lawyers we suggest typically get the best financial compensation settlements for their clients in Texas or surrounding states as we would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303. http://Texas.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Texas the Texas Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facilities with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at one of these hospitals:

* MD Anderson Cancer Center Houston Texas: https://www.mdanderson.org/, Baylor Saint Luke’s Medical Center Cancer Center Houston, Texas:
https://www.bcm.edu/healthcare/care-centers/lung-institute, Dallas Methodist Hospital Dallas, Texas: http://www.methodisthealthsystem.org/lungcancer

The Texas Mesothelioma Victims Center also wants to emphasize their unsurpassed free services are available to a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma statewide including cities such as Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, El Paso, Fort Worth, Corpus Christi, Plano, Laredo, Arlington, etc. http://Texas.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Texas include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, oil refinery workers, oil rig workers, chemical plant workers, factory workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.

The states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon. However, because Texas is one of the nation’s largest energy producing states mesothelioma does happen to very good people in Texas.

Employment Advice for Individuals With Autism

Dr. Stephen Shore shares his personal experiences and notes that employers are actively seeking autistic individuals.

Workshop attendees enjoying Dr. Shore’s humor and informative job tips.

A Workshop Presented Dr. Stephen Shore

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, May 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For an adult with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), finding employment can be extremely difficult, especially without the proper advocacy, training, and direction. Unfortunately, the autism unemployment rate has been reported as high as 85%. To help increase awareness and support, Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices hosted a successful workshop on Employment Strategy and Job Success for Individuals with ASD. The speaker, Dr. Stephen Shore, a member of Icare4Autism advisory committee and an assistant professor at Adelphi University, presented his personal experience with tips to finding secure and successful employment. The workshop was held on May 29, 2018 at Touro College in Manhattan and was attended by parents, therapists, and individuals with ASD.

One of the main insights from Dr. Shore’s presentation was the importance of finding employment based on the individual’s strength. This concept was emphasized throughout the presentation and he further explained that there are neurological and physiological reasons why individuals are better at particular subjects than others. Dr. Shore stressed that individuals with ASD should focus on identifying ways to develop their interests and enthusiasms, utilizing positive skills instead of remediating weaknesses. For example, if someone struggles with multitasking but is really good at something else, they should not put all of their energy into working on improving multitasking.

Identifying interests and non-interests at an early age is an important skill for development. This interest could potentially foreshadow what a child could do well in the future. Dr. Shore, who has ASD, indicated that as a teenager he loved repairing bicycles. He decided to approach the shop manager at the local bicycle shop and discussed his interest and passion in repairing bikes; ultimately he received a job offer to work at that store. Throughout college, he distributed flyers on campus soliciting business to fix bicycles. Although this wasn’t his career path, it gave him the ability to earn money and improve his skills based on his interest.

Dr. Shore, a charismatic and magnetic individual, who had open discussion throughout his presentation as he navigated through his key points. He discussed many tips and interview rules such as the interviewer always needs to sit first. He also expressed that, “relationships are everything when finding employment. Getting a person in power of hiring to like you is so important.” At the end of the workshop, Dr. Shore provided links to organizations that help individuals with ASD find employment and answered any remaining questions from the audience.

Download a free online resource for employment that Dr. Shore and his colleague Robert Naseef developed called Neurodiversity in the Workplace Curriculum.

This time around needs to be different. With the emergence of fresh players in the space and the consumer debt passing the trillion-dollar mark, the industry is once again poised for explosive growth. The challenge now is whether we can navigate this new paradigm successfully. You can’t perceive a new future with old eyes. We need a new, fresh perspective to advance and succeed. Compliance is more important than ever, but solid leadership and innovations are critical to avoid repeating the past. We need to work together and operate with absolute excellence moving forward. I believe Revolution will be the catalyst to powerful change and create the fundamental paradigm shift necessary to truly establish this industry. We are already seeing the synergies unfold from last year’s Revcon2017 event and that will only intensify from here.”

Coined Revcon2018, this event is certainly positioned to shake things up in this re-emerging industry. Business owners from around the country, and from all angles of this industry, will be in attendance to join the movement and participate in the reinvention of this industry..Leaders and innovators from debt settlement, debt management, tax resolution, student debt, bankruptcy, credit repair, fintech and lending will unite under one banner to create powerful changes in the field. With every vertical and angle of debt relief being represented and synergizing, there is no doubt that this event will truly change the industry as we know it. Regulators from the CFPB and FTC have been invited to participate in the industry's first ever town hall event and will be joined by the industry's leading legal and compliance minds.

The event also boasts high level thought leaders bringing critical information and messages that are sure to transform everyone in attendance. The first night will kick off with powerhouse speakers and conclude with a live 2-hour performance by Las Vegas's hottest 80's band, sponsored by Veritas Legal Plan. Revcon2017 was revolutionary in starting the much-needed change, but Revcon2018 is poised to be even "Bigger, Harder, Faster and Stronger". It is definitely slated to be the "Can't Miss" event of 2018 for anyone involved in this arena.

ADDISON, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, May 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — ITsavvy, one of the fastest growing complete cloud solution providers in the U.S., just announced DRaaS (disaster recovery as a service) powered by Veeam.
Together, Veeam’s Cloud Connect VM backup and replication and ITsavvy’s cloud infrastructure provide a fully integrated, fast and secure cloud-based DR. Because ITsavvy is a Veeam Cloud Service Provider, clients can easily and securely point their Veeam backup and replication jobs to ITsavvy’s cloud infrastructure.

ITsavvy monitors, manages, and supports the entire savvyBackup infrastructure on the client’s behalf. The backup is directed to a Veeam Cloud Connect repository which is fully integrated, fast and secure with Veeam’s backup and restore functionality.
