Highland Capital Management has Agreement in Place with RAIT

At long last, Highland Capital Management of Dallas, Texas, has reached an agreement with RAIT Financial Trust. The alternative asset firm, founded in 1993 by James Dondero and Mark Okada, was entered into a cooperation agreement with the real estate investment trust, or REIT, that ensures that both parties are able to appoint desired trustees to its Board of Trustees. According to the terms of the agreement, two new trustees will be appointed based on recommendations by James Dondero and Highland Capital. One will take their post immediately, and the other will be appointed within 120 days of the finalization of the agreement.Additionally, Highland Capital Management and its affiliates have agreed to vote their shares in favor of the election of a slate of trustees that has been recommended by RAIT’s board during its annual meeting. Currently, 115 investors own RAIT Financial Trust. James Dondero and Highland Capital filed paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, reflecting that HCM owns a 5.9-percent stake in the trust, which is equivalent to nearly 5.3 million shares. This disclosure was made in November. With the cooperation agreement, Highland Capital will continue to own around 5.9 percent of RAIT’s outstanding common shares.

RAIT Financial Trust is a real estate investment trust, or REIT, that specializes in providing commercial real estate financing throughout the United States. It operates a widely respected, full-service commercial real estate, or CRE, lending platform that facilitates customized lending solutions to more effectively meet clients’ needs. Meanwhile, Highland Capital Management is a $15 billion alternative asset firm and hedge fund. With James Dondero at the helm, the firm has enjoyed one success after another since being founded in 1993. With the cooperation agreement in place, all parties are optimistic about a profitable future working together.To more properly understand the agreement between Highland Capital Management and RAIT Financial Trust, it helps to know more about Highland Capital’s president and co-founder, James Dondero. At just 54 years of age, Dondero has long been a force to be reckoned with within the industry. Born in Hoboken, NJ, Dondero spent time in Los Angeles, which is where Highland Capital was originally headquartered, before finding his way to Texas. He and co-founder Mark Okada relocated the firm to Dallas early on and have been content there ever since. The firm was a success from the very start. When you consider James Dondero’s background and track record, it comes as no surprise.

James Dondero did well in school as a kid, and he attended the University of Virginia. There, he studied accounting and finance. As a young man, he planned to break into the world of real estate investing. He had a head for numbers, but after completing college, he realized that real estate investing might not be quite right for him. Just five years after earning his college degree, Dondero was managing more than $1 million in fixed-income assets for American Express. That experience put him on the path that led directly to where he is today.Although James Dondero is a talented businessman and investor, he doesn’t just make money for the sake of making it. A philanthropic man, he is actively involved in many causes.

For one thing, Dondero is a strong supporter of emerging non-profits. Through Highland Capital, he operates a $300-million donor-advised fund that provides around $3.5 million of funding to such non-profits per year. He also supports Reasoning Mind, a tech-based math curriculum for pre-K through seventh grade that is primarily used by under-funded schools in remote areas of the country.Until the certification of the vote from RAIT’s 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders happens, the board will remain intact. Now that Highland Capital and James Dondero have a cooperation agreement in place with RAIT, however, there is no question about how everything will unfold at the meeting. Both Highland Capital and RAIT believe that the two new trustees will strengthen the board as a whole. This agreement is just the latest in a long history of successful collaborations and agreements that James Dondero has been a part of in his more than 30-year career. It will be fascinating to see where Highland Capital and RAIT go from here.

George Soros Stands Behind Black Lives Matter for a Good Reason

The grassroots movement known as Black Lives Matter (BLM) has emerged as a major protest organization for the African American community. Currently, it is the biggest and best organized African American social organization that conducts protests on behalf of the African American community. BLM emerged in 2013 in response of George Zimmerman’s acquittal pertaining to the Treyvon Martin slaying.

This organization was started by three female activists who were being groomed to lead protests on behalf of black minorities. Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi are the three women who created this organization from the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter.

BLM is supported by at least 82% of all black people and this organization relies on non-violent protests to make changes within society. The ultimate goal of Black Lives Matter is to make U.S. police departments transparent and accountable. They also want reform the police department so that officers are better trained to deal with minorities.

Protest organizations cannot survive if they’re not funded. It would be impossible for them to stay relevant without financial support. In the past, all organizations were supported by individuals or groups making donations. This is one reason as to why Black Lives Matter needs the support of donors such as George Soros. Their financial contributions help BLM to stay afloat. Read this story at Politico about George Soros.

George Soros is a multi-billion dollar self-made political figure. He is a major influencer (contributor) of the democratic and a liberal cause within the U.S. Soros makes it a point to support liberal and democratic causes because it closely aligns with his own beliefs. Soros does not want any government (not just the one in the U.S.) to have more power than what they need. He also carries this belief over to the police force.

His Open Society Foundations supports BLM and other minority organizations that work to stop police brutality within the African American community. George Soros sympathizes with minority people because he used to live in a situation of tyranny at a young age. When Soros was a young teen in Hungary, he lived under the Nazi regime. He knows from first-hand experience how dangerous a dictatorship can be. His Open Society Foundations supports BLM and other liberal organizations to keep the government in check.

George Soros wants minorities and all Americans to live in peace and to have the best life possible. So, he doesn’t mind allocating funds to BLM for this purpose. Ultimately, Black Lives Matter because supporters such as George Soros help them to matter through their giving.

They provide representation for these people including those who were wrongfully convicted or were juvenile defendants sentenced to excessively long prison sentences or even life terms. They also help inmates that are suffering from life-threatening illnesses who are received poor care while imprisoned as well as those who are not being treated for their PTSD symptoms.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was established by two journalists, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. They had written an article about the notorious Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio which included information from a grand jury proceedings case. One night they were both arrested and hauled into jail so that the police could try to discover who they had obtained this information from regarding the sheriff.

Both Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey sued the county of Maricopa over their illegal treatment by the county and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Both of these journalists had spent parts of their professional careers defending their First Amendment rights against illegal actions of the government. Eventually, the case ended up before the United States Court of Appeals who ruled in their favor.

The case against Lacey and Larkin resulted in a settlement of $3.75 million being awarded to them. They decided to donate the money they received as a settlement which resulted in the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.

Dr. Shiva Gopal Vasishta-a successful neurologist

Scientists have proved that Stem cell transplants may, in the end, result in long-term remission of multiple sclerosis. The results from the trials done in clinics have provided enough evidence that a high-dose of immunosuppressive therapy which is then followed by a transplantation of an individual’s stem cells can end up bringing a relapse-remitting multiple sclerosis. This disease mainly attacks the central nervous system.


A treatment that is known as high-dose immunosuppressive therapy and the autologous hematopoietic cell transplant has proved to have a positive outcome. More than 69 percent of the patients have survived the treatment without any side effects.The aim of this treatment is to prevent the active disease from causing further disability by removing the cells that cause diseases. This treatment is done by only collecting the patient’s blood –forming cells, then give the patient a high dose of chemotherapy to delete the immune system then return the stem cells to the patient. This helps to rebuild the immune system. This treatment comes with some side effects. Recently, three patients died during the treatment.
