At Davos, it's not all about the money…seriously

Read MoreBold-facers to talk crises at Davos

“It is a combination of networking, understanding the scope of views with respect to markets and the economy, and some out-of-the-box idea generation,” explained the manager of a multibillion dollar firm who is avoiding media interviews.

“Going to Davos helps generate investment ideas and manage risk by giving attendees a better understanding of the global dynamics driving markets,” added a handler for one of the prominent hedge fund managers in attendance but who is not speaking.

Of course, selling funds to the many huge institutions in Davos also factors in. There are chief investment officers from sovereign wealth funds, public pensions, insurance companies, charitable foundations and more floating around, potentially looking to allocate billions of dollars to so-called “alternative” investment funds.

At least one firm is hosting a formal event. Hedge fund investor SkyBridge Capital is putting on its annual “Wine Forum” tasting this week at the Hotel Europe’s Piano Bar, a popular Davos after-hours hangout. The event is both for client purposes and charity; this year proceeds will go to the Andrea Bocelli Foundation, whose namesake sang at Davos on Tuesday.

Speaking on stage can also help brand managers as astute economic thinkers.

Dalio, for example, will participate on a panel Thursday on the looming end to U.S.-style quantitative easing, “Ending the Experiment.” Singer will be part of a debate Wednesday on whether markets are “mispricing” geopolitical risks. And Rubenstein will talk Wednesday on the “New Growth Context” in the global economy.

Others speaking include George Soros of Soros Fund Management (now a family office) on Europe; Anthony Scaramucci of SkyBridge on economic volatility; Kenneth Hersh of NGP Energy Capital Management on fossil fuels; and Colin Teichholtz of Pine River Capital Management on shadow banking.

But the majority of managers in Davos aren’t speaking, many opting to keep a lower profile.

Hedge fund managers at WEF include Dan Loeb of Third Point, Kyle Bass of Hayman Capital Management, Frank Brosens of Taconic Capital, Alan Howard of Brevan Howard Investment Products, Andreas Halvorsen of Viking Global Investors, Mitch Julis and Josh Friedman of Canyon Partners, Andrew Law of Caxton Associates, Michael Martino of Mason Capital Management, Eric Mindich of Eton Park Capital Management, and David Harding of Winton Capital Management, according to WEF materials.

Private equity investors include Stephen Pagliuca of Bain Capital, Scott Kapnick of Highbridge Capital Management, Mitch Truwit of Apax Partners and Tom Speechley of Abraaj Group.

Cicilline invites president of Blackstone Valley Tourism Council, as State of Union guest

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — U.S. Rep. David N. Cicilline has invited Robert Billington, president of the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council, to be his guest for President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday.

“After advocating for decades to establish a national park in Rhode Island, Bob’s hard work paid off when Congress approved a bill last month to establish a national park in the Blackstone River Valley,” Cicilline said in a news release. “Without Bob and the many dedicated and passionate individuals and organizations he represents, there is no doubt in my mind that we would not have been able to create a new national park in Rhode Island. ”

Billington said he was grateful for the opportunity “to represent  the hundreds of people of the Blackstone Valley that worked so hard over the years to make the Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park a reality.

President Obama signed legislation in to law on Dec. 19 to establish the park.

Cicilline is the last of the all-Democratic, four-member Rhode Island Congressional delegation to announce his State of the Union Guest.

Sen. Jack Reed’s guest will be Neil Steinberg, president and CEO of the Rhode Island Foundation.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse invited former lieutenant governor Elizabeth Roberts, now secretary of the state Executive Office of Health and Human Services.

U.S. Rep. James Langevin’s guest will be Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza.

Scribd Raises $22 Million Funding Round to Expand its Book Subscription Service

Historical park established in Blackstone Valley

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Blackstone River Valley is the newest national historical park.

U.S. Sen. Jack Reed has been pushing a plan for a Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park for years. The president signed the Rhode Island Democrat’s legislation establishing the park Friday.

The park is along the Blackstone River and includes significant sites in old mill towns and buildings. The Old Slater Mill in Pawtucket, Rhode Island is the first successful cotton-spinning factory in the United States. Sites in North Smithfield and Cumberland, Rhode Island, and Whitinsville and Hopedale, Massachusetts, are also included.

Reed says the Blackstone Valley is a national treasure that is getting the recognition it deserves.

The area is already home to a national heritage corridor that links communities along the Blackstone River from Worcester, Massachusetts, to Providence.

Obama signs bill for national park along the Blackstone River

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — President Obama signed legislation Friday establishing a national park at eight sites that dot the Blackstone River, according to an announcement by Sen. Jack Reed.

The Blackstone River Valley National Park will include the Old Slater Mill in Pawtucket, which is regarded as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution in the United States, and the Museum of Work and Culture in Woonsocket, in addition to three more Rhode Island sites and three sites in Massachusetts.

In a news release, Reed said the Blackstone Valley “is finally getting the recognition it deserves.”

“This new park will help preserve the character and historical significance of the area and tell visitors about an important chapter in American history,” he said.

The park is located within the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor, which runs from Worcester to Providence and was established in 1986. The corridor along the 45-mile river is also getting renewed federal funding to the tune of $650,000 as part of the law championed by Reed and signed by the president.

Congress has not appropriated any money for the park itself. In fact, the government has yet to determine its specific boundaries. That will be done “with the input of the states, local communities, and interested stakeholders,” Reed’s news release said.

“This designation will help preserve key historical, cultural, and environmental resources for future generations,” the senator said. “It will help educate people about our past and contribute to our economic future by supporting tourism and recreational opportunities.”

A plan to establish a national historical park in the Blackstone Valley is going before Congress.

U.S. Sen. Jack Reed has been pushing the plan for a Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park for years. The Rhode Island Democrat’s office said Wednesday the plan was due for votes in the House and Senate by next week as part of the National Defense Authorization Act.

The plan would put a new national historical park along the river, which includes several old mill towns and buildings including the Old Slater Mill in Pawtucket, the first successful cotton-spinning factory in the United States.

The area is already home to the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor, which links 24 communities along the Blackstone River from Worcester, Massachusetts, to Providence.

6 affordable housing developments to share $2M

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) – Six groups that are developing nearly 150 affordable dwellings across Rhode Island are sharing over $2 million in federal funds for the projects.

Rhode Island Housing announced Tuesday the recipients of the second round of this year’s HOME funds. They include Church Community Housing Corp.; Habitat for Humanity South County; Neighborworks Blackstone River Valley Fernwood; Omni Development Corp.; Sankofa Apartments; and Washington County Community Development Corp.

The board approved the funds last month. It will help develop 145 homes and apartments in Burrillville, Exeter, Providence, North Kingstown and Tiverton.

The federal HOME program is the largest block grant to state and local governments to support housing for low- and moderate-income families. The money can be used to acquire property, rehabilitate existing properties or build new homes.

Diving toward a new record

Diving toward a new record

Eagle River’s Jami Stone hits new marks and Mustangs grab fourth



Emmie Jennings at start of 50 yard freestyle preliminaries Friday at Bartlett. Jennings won the heat, posting the fastest time of the day (23.76 seconds) before placing second in the finals of both the 50 free and 100 free individual events. The Chugiak 200 and 400 freestyle teams placed second, to Kodiak, while finishing second in the ASAA State Championships, held Friday and Saturday at Bartlett High.


Following the line that “records are made to be broken,” local diver Jami Stone got in on the action, breaking the 16-year-old mark of 463.45 points, set in 1998 by then Chugiak senior Alaina Patterson, with an incredible 11-dive tally of 474.70, in action Friday and Saturday at the Bartlett 50-meter pool.

The Eagle River High junior’s individual efforts were supported by an eighth-place finish by the Wolves’ boys team, and the fourth-place finish by Chugiak High girls, bringing about a stellar meet for areawide athletes.

Eagle River dive coach Chad Frichtl, himself a three-time state champion in the event from 2002-2004 at Chugiak, said that Stone separated herself from the competition with each successive dive.

“I told her to take it one dive at a time. Every single dive had to be perfect,” he said.

Stone, second at state last year, did one better this year, recording a total that exceeded the boys’ scores as well.

“The goal the whole time was to get the record,” said Frichtl, who dove at the University of Alabama in 2004-2006.

Working on the five elements of the sport – boardwork, takeoff, power, height and entry, Stone excelled at each, said the dive coach.

“She was strong on every single dive,” he added. “She has endless potential.”

Equally effusive of her team’s athletes was Chugiak coach Anne Williams, in particular with the Mustangs girls squad.

Sammie Burke won two state titles – the 200 free and 100 backstroke, with Emmie Jennings placing second in 50 and 100 free, both behind record-setting times from Ila Hughes of Kodiak.

Burke and Jennings teamed up with Cheyenne Burke and Abby Blackstone to place second in both the 200m and 400m free relays, both behind Kodiak with Hughes as the anchor leg.

“Everyone had lifetime best times all-around. We couldn’t have been more pleased,” said Williams. “Everyone had awesome swims. You can’t control what other athletes do, but we did very well.”

The relay teams set new school marks, as did Jennings’ freestyle times and Burke’s backstroke.

Given that the Chugiak girls had only four girls in the final individual events, among the nine events, along with two of three relays, the fourth-place showing was remarkable, Williams said.

The only Mustang male in the finals was senior diver Shawn Fugere, who placed fifth.

Eagle River’s quintet of men, swimmers Blaise and Bryce Fox-Icarro, Nigel Floyd, Bryce Carpenter and Brandon Fast saw the finals, with senior Blaise Fox-Icarro placing second in the 100 butterfly. The 200 med relay team placed fourth and the 200 free team fifth.

The Wolves’ lone titlist was Stone with the new record, with junior Jordyn Bruce fourth in the 100 free and fifth in the 100 breaststroke.

Eagle River coach Grant Gamblin said he was pleased with his team’s showing at state as well.

A list of the 2014 state records posted included nine events – 200 medley relay, Juneau girls; girls 200 IM – Tahna Lindquist, Kodiak; boys 200 IM – Talon Lindquist, Kodiak; girls 50 free – Ila Hughes, Kodiak; girls 1-meter diving – Jami Stone, Eagle River; girls 100 free – Ila Hughes, Kodiak; boys 100 free – Abel Aulback, Petersburg; girls 500 free – Tahna Lindquist, Kodiak and boys 100 back – Talon Lindquist, Kodiak.
