“We pride ourselves in staying on top of industry trends as well as offering an uncommon brand of lightheartedness and I think that’s why our events have become such a drawing card. We also enjoy creating swag boxes with creative, thoughtful items that people actually want and use.”

Cook & James, the Atlanta-area based real estate law firm known for pioneering at-home closings, has been conducting virtual team building happenings for the real estate community during the past 18 months but, as pandemic protocols lift, the firm is moving toward in-person events in a measured way. The first events inside will be those partnering with single real estate entities to conservatively limit the numbers of people at gatherings.

Last week, Cook & James partnered with the Greater Atlanta Home Builder Association (GAHBA) for a “speed dating” networking event and next week will host a cocktail class in conjunction with the Atlanta REALTORS® Association (ARA) on June 23.

Other ARA events throughout the summer will include a July happy hour event and a wellness/spa night in August. Upcoming events hosted by Cook & James for the Cherokee Association of REALTORS® in July will be an event at Big Door Vineyards and a Taco Tuesday Trivia night in August. Members of the Northeast Atlanta Metro Association of REALTORS® (NAMAR) will have an opportunity to network with Cook & James and each other in July for a trivia night and for a brewery happy hour in August.

Cook & James also is a sponsor, affiliate, or friend of the following real estate organizations: Georgia Association of REALTORS®, 400 North Association of REALTORS® and the Cobb Association of REALTORS®. As activities further return to pre-pandemic levels this summer and beyond, C & J will participate with these organizations and others in various upcoming events like expos, conferences, luncheons, karaoke and auction nights, golf outings and more.

Cook & James created a “welcome summer” box of swag that it gifted to various real estate organizations. The purple-branded box features a fun photo of co-founders Kara Cook and Heather James jumping for joy because, not only has summer arrived, but things are beginning to open up post-pandemic and a return to in-person events. The swag boxes were personally dropped off or delivered by courier and contain fun and useful branded items like sunglasses, a pop up frisbee, sunscreen, a beach ball, a waterproof phone case, a tiny USB-powered fan and a lawn drink holder.

“We pride ourselves in staying on top of industry trends as well as not being your typical closing attorneys – we offer an uncommon brand of lightheartedness to the closing table because what’s the point of doing business if it can’t be fun,” asked Kara Cook, co-founding attorney at Cook & James. “We also don’t take ourselves too seriously and I think that’s why our events have become such a drawing card – we truly enjoy meeting friends and colleagues in those more casual settings. And we also enjoy creating out of the ordinary swag boxes that communicate our fun and creative attitude with thoughtful items that people actually want and use.”

During the pandemic, Cook & James pivoted to virtual continuing education classes as well as a complete roster of online after hours events like Taco Tuesday, virtual wine tastings and cocktail classes. Registrants were delivered the coveted purple C & J branded box prior to the events filled with the ingredients for the “class” – whether that be a taco kit, tequila and margarita glasses or a pinot noir, cabernet, wine glasses and non-perishable food pairings for the sommelier to virtually instruct over zoom.

While looking forward to the return to in-person events, the Cook & James team learned during the last 18 months that new rules called for new and creative solutions. The firm is confident if health and safety best practices again require a pivot, they can successfully keep their friends and colleagues engaged – whether virtually or with some other new solution – to maintain their unique attitude and positive business momentum.

Mavidon's New Manufacturing Facility in North Carolina

Mavidon’s New Manufacturing Facility in North Carolina

“We are more centrally located in the United States now which allows us to save a day or two on shipping for our North American customers.” – Tim Carroll, President of Mavidon.

One of America’s leading manufacturers and distributors of products used in the neurology field, Mavidon, has a new location. Now located at 110 Commercial Blvd, Flat Rock, NC 28731 USA, Mavidon has increased their ability to offer timely delivery of products to clients all across the United States by relocating to a more central location. Previously located in South Florida, Mavidon has moved to a bigger facility that has allowed them to increase their staff levels and decrease shipping times.

“We are more centrally located in the United States now which allows us to save a day or two on shipping for our North American customers.” – Tim Carroll, President of Mavidon.

Mavidon was founded in 1986 and initially began by distributing Collodion USP, Electrode Gel, and Acetone to EEG facilities in the U.S. Mavidon continued to develop new products to better serve the neurodiagnostic needs. In 1993, Tim Carroll purchased Mavidon and created Mavidon Medical Products to focus on healthcare and specialty products. Aside from the collodion USP, electrode gel, and acetone products, they also began producing Collodion Remover, Collodion HV, Lemon Prep, PediaPrep, and Medical Adhesive Remover.

Mavidon opened its first self-contained manufacturing facility in 1999, and in 2003, they expanded to a larger facility. With increased capacity, new markets were developed. European Research Labs was acquired in 2004, which added 23 new products including advanced skincare lotions and powerful natural cleaning products. Some of these products are still offered today through Mavidon’s sister company, Tradewater LLC.

Mavidon is committed to developing new and improved products for its customers and finding new ways to make distribution of these products easier and faster. Their marketing staff, manufacturers’ representatives, technicians, and network of distributors are all involved in identifying new product ideas. In fact, they already have some items lined up to launch within this year. Mavidon looks forward to better serving its customers through its new location.

Blockchain

Is this the most expensive transaction in real estate paid for in cryptocurrency

Published

on

Many layer 2 solutions are competing on being the most active in developments. Amid these scaling solutions in Optimism, and given its latest announcement, it will soon enable developers to launch DApps with just a single click of a button.

Optimism provides support for all the apps on the Ethereum ecosystem. It ensures that transaction fees are lower by keeping its data on the blockchain but running computation off-chain.

The team’s latest blog reveals that an upcoming upgrade will facilitate the launch of DApps on its layer. This means that every tool running on Ethereum will also run on Optimism.

Latest Upgrade To Provide Support For Ethereum Protocols

The disclosure by the Optimism team assures the developer’s community that the upgrade will help them to simplify the process of launching their decentralized apps. Also, this simplicity stems across features such as gas and traces. Developers targeting Geth now have the opportunity to launch without changing their codes.

Optimism disclosed that it had overhauled the codes. As a result, it can now go beyond being compatible Ethereum Virtual Machine only to become an EVM equivalence by making its protocol efficient and lightweight.

One of the steps the team took to reduce the protocol’s load was to delete its custom compiler. It also deleted over 25,000 lines of codes as it upgraded.

According to the post, the team asserts that developing the “EVM-compliant rollup” is not very easy given that it aims to support the whole Ethereum stack. Moreover, to also implement the security features which EVM requires will also cost a lot of money. However, it is mandatory because every line of codes added to the system comes with possible vulnerabilities.

Optimism Pursuing Compatibility

As for now, the layer 2 scaling solution is now fully equivalent with EVM using Geth. Though it is working to become compatible with alternative node implementations such as Erigon and OpenEthereum using below one thousand lines of codes. The team disclosed that they hadn’t changed the security model of the protocol even with this release.

The reason behind the growth of Optimism is the move from Ethereum mainnet to other chains & layer 2 solutions compatible with EVM

The migration of capital from Ethereum to these other solutions was to reduce the high fees characterizing transactions carried out on its base layer.

The information from Dune Analytics even reveals that another rollup network Arbitrum has a TVL of $2.62 billion, which is the largest ETH Bridge. This rival protocol went live three weeks ago, and it is already making waves.

But it is not the only protocol as Polygon ERC-20 Bridge emerged after Arbitrum and is now boasting $2.35 billion in TVL. After Polygon came, Avalanche Bridge and Fantom Anyswap Bridge and each now record $1.86 billion and $476 million, respectively.
