Paladin Registry conducts background checks on financial advisors and financial planners. Background checks provide investors with full transparency about their experience, credentials, and business ethics.
Financial planners, financial advisors, and money managers frequently omit, misrepresent, and exaggerate information that helps them sell financial services and products.

It is up to investors to determine who is telling the truth and who is manipulating information to gain their trust and sell products.

A non-reader of history would find this huge volume both interesting and in some cases humorous! Piers Brendon delves into the British Empire history affording the reader tremendous insight into the whys and wherefores! Although he compares himself to Edward Gibbon, another prolific historian and author of ‘The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire’, Brendon salutes Gibbon as the master. The book touches the pitfalls of the American Revolution and updates the British Empire into more modern times.

A guest crosses the threshold of the door and arrives at a big, loud party. Does she make a grand entrance or does she quietly greet other guests on her way to the kitchen, where she checks on the busy hostess and offers her help? The answers to 10 questions like this will determine a person’s nut personality in an online quiz and Facebook application from Fisher Nuts, a John B. Sanfilippo & Son brand (NASDAQ: JBSS). Loosely inspired by a nut preference and personality type study done by Alan R. Hirsch, M.D. founder of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, this light-hearted approach to personality profiling is a sure conversation starter.

Think of a number is John Verdon’s first entry into the field of writing novels. Hopefully he will continue to write.
Set in a rural area of upstate New York in the Catskills, it reflects the author’s move from the hubbub of New York City and the retirement of his protagonist, a retired New York City hero homicide detective. Like most novels, it takes a little bit of reading, but as the plot develops, the reader will find that it is difficult to put the book down. The author manages to carry the interest of the reader without resorting to tawdry methods. One wants to go on and to try to fathom the plot. Although it took this reader to the middle of the book to recognize the perp, Verdon does all he can to shake that conclusion. He also has an excellent command of vocabulary!

Limited Inventory Remaining at Chic, Loft-Style Condominium
The fact that CANCOlofts is an industrial-to-residential conversion of the former American Can Co. factory is a big draw for buyers, who are captivated by the authentic loft feel of the condominiums with their soaring ceilings, dramatic windows and mushroom-capped concrete columns. But for Tami Wisniewski, 35, who purchased a one-bedroom condo last November, the building's industrial past hold a special personal significance: her grandmother, Agnes Hudak, and her grandfather, Donald Diego, met while they were both working at the American Can Co. factory during World War II. "If it weren't for American Can, my grandparents would never have met, my mother would never have been born and I wouldn't be here today," she says.
