Clay Siegall Fighting the Good Battle Against Cancer

Jan
19

Clay Siegall is a dedicated scientist and researcher. At an early age, he understood that he wanted to help mankind in its struggle against disease. He chose as an adversary for his life’s work the most insidious of diseases, cancer. He completed his undergraduate work at the University of Maryland where he received a Bachelor of Science in Zoology. He received his doctorate in Genetics from George Washington University and then went to work. He began pursuing his life’s ambition at the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Health and joined Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceutical Research Institute in 1991.

He currently sits on the Boards of Directors of Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical, Alder BioPharmaceuticals, and Washington Roundtable. Clay Siegall has received numerous awards, including among these is the 2013 award from the University of Maryland as the Alumnus of the Year and the 2012 Pacific Northwest Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Since Siegall founded his own business, Seattle Genetics, he has secured an enormous $1.2 billion in funding to help him on his company’s path to eliminating cancer in his lifetime.

His course of action against cancer is impossible for the layman to comprehend. But it is important to know that people like Siegall exist to make our lives cancer free. The efforts of scientists and researchers of the caliber of Siegall are national treasures and stand in strong contrast to the superficial stars of reality television that so many people are attracted to and admire. A mass of people who would even elect a reality star as the President of the United States. The American value system, which is molded by television and the predominance of religion, have little truck with the medical arts and science. This unfortunate condition in the United States of America does not seem to be improving and will not become better until some of our influences like television and religion lose their impact on students in America.

Most Edited Wikipedia Articles for the Year 2016

Jan
06

Recently, Wikipedia revealed the most edited articles for the year 2016. Some of them were unsurprising like Orlando nightclubs shooting, Brexit, and a few controversial topics. However, the inclusion of some articles was surprisingly as well as mysterious. These articles included Beverley Gray which is a fictional character, RuPaul’s Drag Race, 26 mystery stories especially the subject area. An article which was edited over thousands of time was the Vincent Van Gogh. The reason behind so much editing was the editors seeking to clarify the misunderstanding they caused about the artist to achieve the featured status.

Deaths in 2016 was another most edited articles that were edited over two-hundred times. Several famous people died in 2016 which included Prince, John Glenn, Muhammad Ali, Fidel Castro, Leonard Cohen, Gwen Ifill, Janet Reno, and David Bowie. The article about Donald Trump was edited almost nine thousand times by December. It is possible that Trump’s Wikipedia page will face more scrutiny in case more history is added. The Wikipedia page of George W. Bush had the most Wikipedia revisions which were almost forty-six thousand in number. It is the most edits of an article in English according to the history of Wikipedia website. Due to the changes occurring in this modern era, the job of a Wikipedia editor has become very important. A big problem is a practice of spreading wrong information through the fake news. Many times fake news was entered on Wikipedia website. Just in the first two weeks of last December, there were over one thousand Wikipedia edits due to fake news.

There are several benefits of having a Wikipedia page. Individuals, businesses, non-profit organizations, and many other entities can gain a lot by having their Wikipedia page. The right way to have a Wikipedia page is to hire a Wikipedia editor. It is not something that anyone can do. A Wikipedia page must be written according to the website’s manual. The article must be properly formatted and supported by reliable references. Such a page will serve as a historical report about one’s business which is comprehensive and reliable.

Wikipedia is the most visited website, and having a page here means having a precious digital asset. Google populates its knowledge graphs using the information present on Wikipedia. As a result, the website ranks quite higher in search results. As Wikipedia is an open-source website, anyone is allowed to edit a Wikipedia page. Most of the times, the edits are based on good intentions. However, there is a chance a malicious edit might occur which can cause great damage to one’s reputation or company. Hiring a Wikipedia editor will solve this problem. The editor will keep monitoring and ensuring that every edit of the page contains accurate information.

Jan

Bruce Levenson and Atlanta Hawks Basketball & Entertainment (AHBE) have a battle on their hands against their former insurance company, AIG. The two parties sold the Atlanta Hawks just last year and as part of that sale, Levenson and AHBE decided to buyout then General Manager Danny Ferry’s contract. According to AHBE, an option to do so was written in the insurance policy they had with AIG, and AIG was responsible to pay out such a claim that they filed. Thus far, AIG is not responding to the claim and Levenson and AHBE are taking them to court, vowing to sue for bad faith and for court damages.

Bruce Levenson purchased the Atlanta Hawks in 2004 along with the NHL’s Atlanta Thrashers, and owned them for about 12 years. Prior to that, he built a company called Unitied Communications Group (UCG). Levenson had gotten a degree in journalism back in the 1970s and while he was attending law school, he became a contributor to a now defunct Washington D.C. newspaper. Later, he and his friend Ed Peskowitz started up their own news publication called Oil Express, and in the following years added more journals till they had built up the UCG conglomerate. UCG is also the parent to TechTarget and GasBuddy.

Levenson is also a Forbes listed billionaire and an accomplished philanthropist, giving back millions to the D.C. community in his time. Organizations he’s sponsored include the “I Have a Dream” Foundation, Hoop Dreams, and the Holocaust Memorial Museum. Levenson even helped start the “Bringing the Lessons Home” program there where young people can learn about all the historic implications of the event, and later become tour guides at the museum. Levenson is also a staunch supporter of Jewish foundations including BBYO, SEED Foundation, Birthright Israel and AIPAC. He also helped fund the Concert Against Hate event last year.

Brief Bio of Eric Pulier

Jan
02

When it comes to naming someone who’s done many positive things to better man-kind, Eric Pulier should be somewhere on that list. This extraordinary being has a hand in numerous industries that range from education, technology, healthcare, and business. As a child, Pulier grew up in Teaneck, New Jersey. His fascination of technology was always evident, but who knew it would make him into the person of today. Creation was his game as he programmed his first computer in the fourth grade. That’s right! As he moved on to high school he began pushing his talents even further as he founded his very own computer database company. By this time he was already a full step in front of his peers.

College life began in 1984. Pulier attended the famed Harvard University and majored in English/American Literature. As an editor of The Harvard Crimson Publication, Pulier also wrote a column for the publication. Did I mention that he also took classes at MIT around this time? This guy was all over the place, but somehow managed to get things done efficiently. By 1991 he had moved to The City of Angeles and began his personal career. Here are a few of Pulier’s founded companies below:

  • Akana (software)
  • Digital Evolution
  • Service Mesh Inc
  • U.S. Interactive
  • FLY
  • XPRIZE

Of course this only scratches the surface, buy you get the idea. Being so business savvy, Pulier managed to sell one of his later businesses for $350 Million. Having such a caring nature is truly what he believes in as he’s donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to charities, start-up companies, and capital venture deals. His ingenuity gave him the opportunity to build and run the “Bridge For The 21st Century” platform for Bill Clinton’s 2nd Inauguration.

When it all comes down to it, the question that should be asked is what can Eric Pulier not do? His eclectic business sense has helped him transcend the way we use technology and conduct business.

EOS Achieves A High Level Of Market Success

Dec
15

Investing in their own production facility was one way that EOS geared the success of their company in their benefit. EOS lip balm wanted to become a brand that could satisfy the needs of their customers and the demand for the product without having to rely on outside resources. The decision to invest in this core facility instead of hype marketing at the outset of the company helped them to build a more solid foundation.

When the time did come for the company to market their product they did so via heavy influencer marketing. They used the older advertising methods like magazine and television marketing, but also employed newer methods that would help them to reach a wider audience and their target audience, female millennials. They got in touch with those influencers like widely watched beauty bloggers and let them create the magic. Just one or two YouTube recaps of EOS products taken at the suggestion of a trusted beauty YouTube video could reach several hundred thousand viewers.

In addition to influencer marketing on the internet, the brand also used popular celebrities to promote their brand. Britney Spears promoted the product as well as Taylor Swift for the Asian market, and widely hyped at the time Miley Cyrus used EOS balm in one of her videos.

According to Fast Company‘s article, two of the founders of the company in charge of making marketing decisions made all the right ones. They hired the right people, asked the right questions and put their marketing initiatives in the right place. Their ability to ask questions and listen to what the market wanted and would respond to was the key to their success. Rather than an assumption, they really listened, and keyed into those inferences to really make it work and become a lasting brand rather than a lip balm fad.

SEC Whistleblower Program Helps Investors Settle Disputes

Dec
12

In the year 2010, the United States Congress looked to help regulate the financial industry by introducing the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. This new legislation proved to be the most significant regulatory policy since the Great Depression. One of the most significant aspects of the Dodd Frank Act is the establishment of a whistleblower program. With this program, a number of people will get employment protection and financial incentives to report any unethical activity that takes place in the finance industry. As part of this program, a number of individuals can seek these incentives through legal representation from a SEC whistleblower attorney.

 

Once the Dodd Frank Act was passed, the law firm Labaton Sucharow became the most prominent law firm to specialize in providing representation for anyone looking to report wrongdoing in the finance industry. As part of the firm, individuals looking to report violations of securities laws will be able to get representation from a SEC whistleblower lawyer. Clients will be able to get excellent representation due to the firm’s use of investigators, financial analysts and forensic accountants. With the combination of these professionals, Labaton Sucharow has proven to get favorable legal results for clients who are looking to report unscrupulous activity in the finance industry.

 

When an individual has witnessed or become aware of wrongdoing being committed in the financial securities industry, they will have the opportunity to meet with one of the lawyers at Labaton Sucharow. The client and the firm will work towards reporting unethical activity to the Securities and Exchange Commission. Those who report wrongdoing and become whistleblowers will have the opportunity to seek and get financial compensation. In order to report securities law violations and get compensation, whistleblowers will need to go through a legal process known as litigation. During this process, they will work with an attorney to present evidence to a court that proves that violations were committed.

 

In a typical case, the whistleblower client will first inform an attorney at Labaton Sucharow about wrongdoing in the finance industry. The client will consult with the lawyer and present the information they have available. Then the lawyer will file documents to a court revealing the evidence and information about securities law violations. If the company or finance professional who violated securities laws agrees to a settlement, then the case is over. However, there are times when they wont’ and therefore a whistleblower attorney will need to take the case to court. If the case results in a favorable outcome for the whistleblower, then they receive compensation. Their identity is also protected during this process in order to maintain anonymity.
