NEW YORK, May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- 2017's first quarter was grim for retailers, as bankruptcy filings continued to escalate, with no sign of decreasing in the foreseeable future, proving the "Amazon Effect" is not a fluke. Energy industry filings are expected to continue in the second quarter, although at a slower pace this year, and the healthcare industry may be the next sector to face a flurry of bankruptcy filings, according to The Deal, a business unit of TheStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ: TST). "Bankruptcy and restructuring attorneys and advisers were busy in the first quarter as the amount of Chapter 11 filings increased in each month with the retail industry leading the charge on petitions," said Kirk O'Neil, bankruptcy reporter at The Deal. "The rising trend of retail Chapter 11 filings is expected to continue through the year as oil and gas industry filings begin to level off."

After Trump's first proposed legislation stalled and a second try at passing a bill squeaked through with minimal support, advisers are no longer certain that Trump's assault on The Affordable Care Act will be a threat to the healthcare sector this year, as they first thought. Advisers are now asserting that companies in the energy and retail sectors will be more active this year seeking out-of-court restructurings than the healthcare industry. "A long list retailers led a parade of out-of-court restructurings in the first quarter with many of them, such as Macy's, Sears Holding Corp. and J.C. Penney Co., announcing dozens of store closings." said Kirk O'Neil, out-of-court restructuring reporter at The Deal. "The retail sector will continue to be the most active industry seeking out-of-court restructurings in the second quarter, followed by some oil and gas companies that are trying to avoid Chapter 11 filings." The Deal's exclusive ranking covers the top global advisers involved in out-of-court cases filed between January 1 and March 31, 2017.

While sports fans continue to support their favorite teams by attending their games, they rarely do so without having food and beverages as part of the celebration. In fact, the ever popular tailgate party can be more fun than the game itself. That’s exactly why an inventor from Casa Grande, Ariz., came up with an easy way to guarantee the success of the tailgate party. She developed ULTIMATE TAILGATOR to allow user to prepare foods for an outdoor venue like a picnic, concert or sporting event in advance. She designed it to also keep perishable and nonperishable foods separated. What’s more, it provides multiple compartments for storing ice, food and beverages while keeping foods sanitary and protecting them against spoilage. Of special note is a unique feature of this cooler that enables the user to grill as well as store food. This invention is also lightweight, portable and easy to transport. In addition, it is convenient, effective and affordably priced. The inventor’s personal experience inspired the idea. “While I enjoy picnics and tailgate parties, these outdoor venues require advance planning and preparation of food, drinks and supplies that have to be carried there,” she said. “I wanted to find an easy way to transport everything in one cooler.” The original design was submitted to the Woodbridge office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
