A Tempe construction company that helped build Chase Field in Phoenix has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Cactus Rose Construction Inc. filed for bankruptcy July 23 in US Bankruptcy Court in Phoenix.

A Chapter 7 filing usually means a business is liquidating its assets and going out of business.

The contractor’s website says Cactus Rose worked on construction of Chase Field as well as other projects in downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale and Las Vegas.

Telephone calls to Cactus Rose’s Tempe offices were not returned. Neither was a call to the company’s bankruptcy attorney. The telephone number for the contractor’s offices in Las Vegas was not in service.

It’s a win-win when high school students in recovery mentor their peers with severe special needs, say teachers involved with a unique summer jobs project at the Northshore Education Consortium.

The program has brought out the best in both groups of students and made a powerful impact on their education and work goals.

It’s all part of the federally funded First Jobs program, which offers youth a chance to get work experience and coaching, and for businesses and non-profit organizations to give students something meaningful to do over the summer and get them off the streets.

Over the last several years, Kilroy Realty has enhanced the quality of its portfolio by expanding its geographic footprint into San Francisco and the greater Seattle market, in addition to selling lower-growth assets and re-deploying the capital into better assets with more upside. Kilroys robust operating performance is reflected in its solid occupancy levels, 92% occupied as of 1Q14, as well as high-single digit NOI growth year over year. Moodys also notes that development is a core competency of the REIT with $1.5 billion under construction as of the end of the first quarter. Four of the six development projects are fully pre-leased to quality tenants under lease terms of 12 years or more,...

If youve ever spent hours driving round in circles in a fruitless hunt for a parking space, that could now be no more than a frustrating memory. JustPark has launched an app that lets you search, book and pay for free spots while driving and secured funding from tech venture capitalists Index Ventures.

Launched in 2006 as Park At My House, JustPark was originally a platform for people or organisations to rent out their driveways or underused car parks (a church in Kings Cross has so far made pound;200,000 from Eurostar passengers needing to leave their cars behind). The site now has 500,000 drivers and 100,000 parking spaces.

The new app drives the startup from the fringes of the sharing...

Summer is a time for families to relax, reconnect, rejuvenate, and have fun. However, for some, the costs that come along with warm-weather activities and festivities can be too much for their budget to handle. While there are some free or low-cost ways to have fun, many come with a substantial price tag including vacations, day/overnight camps, swim club memberships, day or road trips, and home/yard improvement projects. Fortunately, credit unions want all of their members to get in on some summertime fun, and offer affordable ways to help them do just that!

Get Your Summer On, Credit Union Style!

No one wants to worry about breaking the bank in order to have summer fun. Your...

As part of its July 23rd Money Market Fund Reform package, the SEC re-proposed amendments for the Removal of Certain References to Credit Ratings which would eliminate the credit ratings requirements for money market funds. The biggest change is the SEC eliminating its First Tier and Second Tier definitions and replacing these with a single but more amorphous minimal credit risk standard. The proposals are open to a 60-day comment period (once theyre published in the Federal Register), and comments may be submitted to rule-commentssec.gov (include File Number S7-07-11 on the subject line). Below, we take a deeper dive into the proposal, which is posted on the SECs web site. We believe these...
