    New Music Seminar

    On a hot 1980 summer day, 220 people met at a New York City rehearsal studio to discuss and debate the problems in the music business. It heralded the birth of the legendary New Music Seminar, bringing new ideas, new talent and new connections to the industry, along with the introduction of hip hop, new wave, house and many other new forms of music.

    During its 15-year run, the first NMS became the world’s biggest and most influential music business gathering attracting over 8,000 people from 35 countries. The seminar has since spawned almost every important music event worldwide, including SXSW, Winter Music Conference, In the City, and Canadian Music Week

    Cherif Medawar

    My students are consistently making money – even in this down economy!

    My name is Cherif Medawar. You might have heard of me. I currently own over $50 million in commercial properties and real estate mortgage notes (REO’s). I also have a private fund operating in California and several business models that my student investors have participated in through the years.

    A Special Invitation
    I would like to invite you to meet me in person as I will be doing a series of dynamic presentations in the Los Angeles area to explain current trends in real estate and how anyone can make money in today’s economy with MY business models.

    It’s Not About Books and Tapes
    I’m sure you can learn a lot from a good book . . . and even one or two book and tape sets. But how much can you really apply? The idea is to learn how the market has changed and to change along with it. My students capitalize on what is happening now. They are not “waiting it out” or trying to apply what used to work in the past. They know what’s working, along with my simple, yet powerful proprietary system that is producing outstanding results.

    Don’t Take My Word For It

    I would like you to go to and put “Cherif Medawar” in the search window. You will see over 500 success stories. Five hundred of my students took the time and effort to stand in front of a camera to tell the world how I personally impacted their financial lives. Some of these videos are emotional , as they well should be. But they are clear evidence that I walk the walk and deliver on the promises of this market.

    And, as importantly, their success stories inspire others to do the same and they inspire me to continue sharing my knowledge and investment programs with others.

    A Powerful Business Model
    I have made and lost a great deal of money trading the stock market, but I have never lost a dime in real estate and I don’t plan on starting now.

    The student investors who work with me consistently make money because they don’t simply get information, they get a very specific proprietary system and four business models that have made me and many others wealthy through the years in:

    1. Bank Owned REO (Notes)
    2. Foreclosure Auctions (California)
    3. Commercial Real Estate Opportunities
    4. Commercial Real Estate Syndications

    My Message To You Today Is Very Simple
    While we can all agree that there has been a major sea change in the real estate market in the past two years, I’m here to tell you it just doesn’t matter when it comes to making money. I’ve used my proprietary business model during the real estate recovery of the late 90’s, during the real estate rush in the 2,000’s, throughout the subsequent real estate bubble, and I’m using it right now to truly make outrageous profits.

    My students are doing exactly the same thing I’m doing by replicating my business models time and time again.

    And you can too, putting money in your pocket in the process.

    See For Yourself
    When you come in, you will see that I am the one in the front of the room; not some slick sales person who has barely done a real estate deal in his life. I will take questions during and after my complimentary two-hour presentation to insure you feel comfortable and confident in participating in my programs. Each presentation will cover my four powerful business models.

    Whether you invest by yourself, with me directly, or with others in my network, you will want to come mentally, emotionally, and financially prepared to engage in a major transformation in your life. If what you see and hear doesn’t convince you it’s at your fingertips, I’m not sure anything else ever will!

    Expect the best and you will see that you can make it happen. See you there.

    NACF: China National Solar Subsidiary Launches Development of New Solar iPhone App

The SolarGenie will also provide geographical efficiency data on what areas of the country are best for solar power. Finally, it will also include a database of solar suppliers, installers and professionals available to help consumers install solar power efficiently.

    China National Solar aims to deliver solar solutions worldwide from its base in China. The SolarGenie is an example of a practical, useable solar application that could facilitate growth within the solar industry worldwide.

    The iPhone is a portable data device produced by Apple, Inc. (AAPL, Trade ). It allows users to download and operate ‘applications’ that empower the portable device to deliver a wide variety of additional services. The iPhone competes with Google, Inc’s (GOOG, Trade ) Android system and with Research-in-Motion’s (RIMM, Trade ) BlackBerry phones. China National Solar acquires and develops cutting edge solar energy related technology to compete in and industry sector that contains stalwarts such as Trina Solar Ltd. (TSL, Trade ).

    California Figs Full of nutrients

    I love figs. This is the season for figs in California.

    I was reading in the Trader Joes flyer, that figs are actually flowers that have inverted into themselves.
    The inner seeds are drupes, the actual fruit, loaded with nutrients like calcium, potassium & fiber.

    Trader Joes has them for $2.99 a pound, for California figs, this is a great deal.

    Fresh Figs from California, 98% of country’s figs come from California.

    Excellent sliced with a crumbled blue cheese.
    really good with cured meats like prosciutto

    Remember that fig season is limited and once they are out of season, they are very hard to come by.
