(Graphic: Business Wire) BlizzCon 2019 will feature a wide range of attractions and activities for attendees, including in-depth developer panels, world-class esports competition, and opportunities for community creativity to shine in the spotlight. In addition, BlizzCon is expanding to include more active hall space at the convention center as well as the new “BlizzCon Pregame Festivities”—a fun and casual get-together running outside of the convention center on the day before the show. “BlizzCon has served as a home away from home for the Blizzard community, a place where online friends can meet up in real life and new friendships are formed,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to welcoming everyone to the show this year, reconnecting, celebrating, and sharing some of our latest developments.” Some of the greatest Blizzard esports moments of all time have taken place at BlizzCon, and this year’s show is sure to continue that tradition. Esports highlights for BlizzCon 2019 include the Hearthstone® Global Finals, capping off the inaugural year of Hearthstone Grandmasters; the Overwatch® World Cup; the epic global finals for the StarCraft® II World Championship Series; the World of Warcraft® Arena World Championship Finals; and the inaugural global finals of the World of Warcraft Mythic Dungeon International. Three BlizzCon Pass Options Also new this year is the “BlizzCon Portal Pass,” a separate ticket option that offers an array of perks to enhance the BlizzCon experience, including access to Darkmoon Faire during a new “Night at the Faire” event on the eve of BlizzCon. The Portal Pass also includes several convenience-related extras, such as an option to be among the first to enter the show on Friday and Saturday, preferred parking, separate registration and security lines, a dedicated lounge for taking a load off during BlizzCon and mingling with Blizzard employees, and more. In addition to the Portal Pass, the core BlizzCon Pass will be available, offering the same full general-admission access as in previous years—along with access to the new BlizzCon Pregame Festivities. The BlizzCon Benefit Dinner will also be available again this year, offering a chance to meet and chat with developers, artists, and other folks from Blizzard the night before the show at a laid-back charity dinner—as well as full general-admission access to the show and all of the perks provided with the Portal Pass. As in past years, net proceeds from the BlizzCon Benefit Dinner go to benefit CHOC Children’s, whose mission is to nurture, advance, and protect the health and well-being of children. Quantities of all three ticket types will be available in both waves—unlike previous years, there will not be a separate wave for the BlizzCon Benefit Dinner. The first sale will take place Saturday, May 4, at 10:00 a.m. PDT, and the second will take place Wednesday, May 8, at 7:00 p.m. PDT. The sale is being conducted by online ticketing vendor AXS (details on the AXS waiting room system and helpful tips for the purchase process can be found at www.blizzcon.com). In addition to applicable taxes and fees, pricing is $229 for the BlizzCon Pass, $550 for the BlizzCon Portal Pass, and $750 for the BlizzCon Benefit Dinner. Choice of BlizzCon Commemorative Collectible Statue All three purchase options will include the BlizzCon in-game goodies (to be announced), along with a choice of BlizzCon Commemorative Collectible statue—either a mighty Orc Grunt or bold Human Footman—in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Warcraft®. Note that the statue selection must be made and will be locked during the ticket-purchase process. Created in the style of the popular Blizzard Legends series, the statues will take the place of the Goody Bag from previous years. The statues will also be sold separately during a limited window, starting May 4, for attendees who would prefer to have both and for anyone else who would like to purchase them. Further details on this year’s BlizzCon as well as the different ticketing options, attendee perks, the collectible statues, and more can be found at www.blizzcon.com.

KB Home Announces the Grand Opening of Its First Community of ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes in the Seattle Area
April 25, 2019 20:00 UTC KB Home’s Falling Water debut marks the homebuilder’s official launch in the Seattle market, offering stylish, energy- and water-efficient new homes in an established Bonney Lake neighborhood; priced from the $380,000s BONNEY LAKE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- KB Home (NYSE: KBH) today announced the grand opening of Falling Water, establishing the company’s first new-home community in the Seattle market. Tucked inside a highly desirable Bonney Lake neighborhood, Falling Water provides easy freeway access and offers buyers a rare opportunity to own a personalized, ENERGY STAR certified home in the Seattle area from a well-known national homebuilder. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190425005951/en/ New ENERGY STAR certified homes now available in Seattle area. (Photo: Business Wire) At Falling Water, KB Home will construct 96 one- and two-story homes and offer six distinct floor plans. With up to four bedrooms and three baths, and ranging in size from approximately 1,600 to 2,550 square feet, the KB homes at Falling Water feature desirable design characteristics like optional three-car garages, spacious great rooms and elegant master suites. Pricing begins from the $380,000s. “KB Home is thrilled to debut our distinct home building process and ENERGY STAR certified new homes to this vibrant market,” said Ryan Kemp, president of KB Home’s Seattle division. “We believe offering a highly efficient new home that can be personalized to fit the needs of each customer’s unique lifestyle will resonate with Seattle homebuyers.” KB Home’s building process allows buyers to personalize many aspects of their new home to suit their budget and style. After selecting their lot and floor plan, KB homebuyers can work with expert design consultants who will guide them through every aspect of the process as they select from a variety of design choices, including countertops, cabinets, lighting, appliances and window coverings. Located near Washington State Route 410, KB Home’s Falling Water offers convenient commuting to Tacoma and the greater Seattle metro area. Community schools, and dining, shopping, recreation and the beautiful White River Amphitheater, which hosts live music, are all within a few minutes’ drive. Nearby Victor Falls Park features a tranquil hidden waterfall, and abundant natural surroundings are waiting to be explored at Lake Tapps, Crystal Mountain Resort and Mount Rainier National Park. All the KB homes at Falling Water will be built to current ENERGY STAR certification guidelines, will include WaterSense® labeled faucets and fixtures, and will provide advanced indoor air quality systems. Only 10 percent of new homes in the U.S. are currently built to current ENERGY STAR certification guidelines. As such, the KB homes at Falling Water are designed to be more energy and water efficient than most typical new and resale homes available in the area. These energy- and water-saving features are estimated to help save homebuyers between $1,000 and $1,400 a year in utility costs, adding up to potential savings of over $30,000 over the life of a 30-year mortgage, depending on floor plan. “ENERGY STAR certified homes are at least 10 percent more energy efficient than homes built to code and achieve a 20 percent improvement on average, while also providing homeowners with better quality, performance and comfort,” said Chris Hladick, EPA’s Regional Administrator for Region 10. “Together with partners like nine-time Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award Winner KB Home, the ENERGY STAR New Homes Program helped homeowners save three billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, avoid $400 million in energy costs and achieve three million metric tons of greenhouse gas reductions last year.” KB Home will host a grand opening celebration at Falling Water on Saturday, April 27, 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m., during which attendees may tour the two elegantly appointed model homes and learn about the benefits of owning an ENERGY STAR certified home. Refreshments will be provided. The Falling Water sales office is located at 17826 122nd St. Ct. E. in Bonney Lake. From Hwy. 410 East, turn right on Sky Island Dr. Turn left on Rhodes Lake Rd.

Investment Link launches The Retirement Buckets® Income Plan, a subscription-based financial planning service
SOUTHFIELD, Mich., April 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- To simplify the retirement income advice services and to help millions of retirees decumulate their savings to create retirement income that can last throughout their retirement years, Investment Link launched its subscription-based financial planning service, branded under The Retirement Buckets® Income Plan. There are currently over 49 million people in the United States over the age of 65; with 10,000 more reaching the age of retirement every day. With the shifting from Pension Plans to Defined Contribution Plans, these retirees will need to learn how to create their retirement income and manage their assets throughout retirement. "With the industry's asset-based pricing model and recurring fees structure, many retirees look elsewhere for simple and transparent ways to create and manage retirement income. They look for solutions that they can understand and implement themselves," said Henry Ilyasov, founder and CEO of Investment Link. Corporate pension funds use sophisticated planning models to ensure their funds provide current income to their retirees, while growing and managing undistributed assets so these resources will be available to meet future obligations many years from now. With our technology, these powerful analytical planning tools are now available to individuals. "The bucket strategy has been used in the industry for decades. Why not give the retirees access to these tools to create retirement income on their own, with a simple subscription-based pricing model? The solutions we offer for people to manage their savings and investments provide them with a predictable, lifelong income stream that will support their retirement lifestyle," added Ilyasov. Furthermore, The Retirement Buckets® Income Plan reduces the risk of retirees making emotional trading decisions driven by rapid changes in market volatility by having automated risk management built into the buckets. The software is complex in design, but simple to use. It alleviates the fear of market volatility, addresses the uncertainty about outliving savings, and creates an easy-to-follow retirement income plan. About Investment Link  Investment Link, LLC is an SEC Registered Investment Adviser. Our mission is to empower retirees with the tools they need to manage their retirement income and stay in control of their own financial future.
