    CEMEX SAB de CV (ADR) NYSE:CX "MM") Shareholder Derivative Action?: Part1

    in Legal

    Will CEMEX ("ADR" CX:US" CLH" CEMEXCPO:MM) (BVC: CLH) and CEMEX SAB de CV (CEMEX USA) shareholders file a derivative class action lawsuit in 2015? It appears that the shareholders may have a viable claim against CEMEX based on fraud, illegal activities, or gross mismanagement by CEMEX because the Board of Directors has failed to address corporate abuse and criminal acts committed by their employees, agents and affiliates. CEMEX has failed to police its own employees to the detriment of productivity and outcome and therefore, a decline in stock value.


    Has the negligent behavior exhibited by CEMEX staff, employees and agents resolved in poor cement quality; that the lack of proper handling and use concerning the production of cement is the reason for defective housing structure, buildings and infrastructure throughout this country and abroad. Has these acts resulted in misappropriation of corporate assets, has there been a wrongful delegation of corporate duties and a failure to address the negligent acts of employees, and is the negligent acts committed by employees deemed a breach of corporate duty of care, duty of loyalty and has resolved in a a waste of corporate assets to cover their wrongdoings. This is particularly true, where these acts are the result of nepotism. 


     Therefore, it is important to do an extensive background investigation into the company and companies responsible for manufacturing, producing and distributing cement because poor quality cement resolves in billions of dollars in losses to businesses, insurance companies and consumers. For such reasons, CEMEX shareholders may consider litigating against the corporation in 2015.


    Jaime Gerardo Elizondo Chapa Board Member President and Karl Watson are called upon to take immediate action.

    March 19, 2015 10pm (PDT)- The Falcon Project's William Barnes joins us

    in Paranormal

    The Falcon Project is a large scale observation and research operation founded by William Barnes. William envisioned an operation that would allow for both the observation and tracking of an elusive animal he first encountered in 1997. There are hundreds of reports every year from people who claimed to have also encountered the same elusive animal, an animal most commonly referred to as sasquatch.


    Sasquatch, also known as Bigfoot, is the name given to an elusive, and as yet unrecognized hominoid species, that primarily inhabits the moist forests and bottoms of North America. They are usually described as being large, hairy, bipedal humanoids. The word sasquatch is an anglicized derivative of the Halkomelem word sásq’ets, meaning the “wild man of the woods.”


    In the summer of 1997, William had a close encounter with a sasquatch when one entered his campsite along the South Fork of the Greenhorn River in Nevada County, California. The details of his encounter can be found on the Falcon project website. Because of this experience, William first began to conceptualize what would ultimately become The Falcon Project. Through years of correspondence with engineers about airship technology and advances in thermal camera technology, The Falcon Project eventually took shape.

    Tips on following up with new people you meet at social and networking events

    in Legal

    Episode 44 of Building Your Law Practice with Jim Thompson and Nick Augustine


    Let’s get back to the basics of social and business interactions and focus on following up with people we want to know, like and build trust. Too often people act like robots by going to events, giving a canned speech about themselves to another person, giving away their business cards and asking for others. Many bring the collection of new business cards back to simply set them on a pile and leave them to collect dust. Break the cycle and get to really know them.

    Growing your Referral Partner Network

    in Legal

    Episode 42 of Building Your Law Practice with Jim Thompson and Nick Augustine


    Referrals are the best source of business for many lawyers. When someone we know, like and trust gives out our name to an individual looking for our services, and there is already an endorsement, we are more likely to earn business from the prospective client. Referrals can come from current and past clients, but also from people in what we call the Referral Partner Network. Today we talk about setting up reciprocal relationships with client referral partners.
