Extractions: Maximizing Value: Minimizing Costs By Malana Houser Whether you are a Fortune 500 company, an established local service company or a firm looking to enter into new markets, office business centers (OBC's) offer an array of options to accommodate the ever-changing needs of people simply trying to do business. Office business centers, previously called "executive suites" have been emerging since the 1970's, but still remain an industry that is trying to be discovered and working to fit into one business category. David Middleton, the President/CEO of EPCOR Business Centers feels "the industry has evolved substantially over the past twenty years and provides many more services than it did during the 1970's and 1980's". He is also the President-Elect of the industry's international organization, which recently changed its name from the Executive Suite Association to the Office Business Center Association International (OBCAI). This name change shows the great strides the business center industry is making and how it is still evolving. There are an estimated 4,000 office business centers in North America and 5,500 worldwide, with estimated revenues between $2.5 and $3 billion. What is an Office Business Center?

You may then type in a writer's name or search for the title of a particular work Many works are listed more than once because they were read or presented more than once. Example 1: Olive Senior reads selected "Hurricane Poems" from her collection, Gardening in the Tropics, in 1993 and in 1995. Example 2: In longer works, such as George Lamming's novel In the Castle of My Skin , different excerpts of the novel appear on separate readings. Lamming reads an excerpt in 1991 and another excerpt in 1993. An additional excerpt is read at the George Lamming Tribute in 1993.

Extractions: Claims Compensation Bureau, Inc. (CCB) was founded by Brad Heffler, CPA in 1996. Before starting CCB, Mr. Heffler, in his position of litigation partner, specialized in the administration of class action cases at one of the leading class action firms in the country. Over a 15-year period, Mr. Heffler was involved in the administration of over 200 of the largest and most complicated securities cases, including Crazy Eddie, Boesky, Milken, Digital Equipment and Iomega. During his years of claims processing, he realized that many larger shareholders and traders were not filing claims. Either they did not want to be bothered searching through their old stock records or they thought they would not receive any money back. Brad knew that by making the process easy, painless and profitable for these shareholders, many more would want to file their claims and recover funds that they were rightfully entitled to receive. This has proved true, as evidenced by the fact that CCB has filed over $50 million worth of claims for its clients since the start of 1998. We estimate that over 90% of the funds obtained on behalf of our clients would not have been recovered without our assistance, because of either non-filing or filing incorrectly.
