There Are Several Gift Ideas You Should Consider According To Chris Burch

Chris Burch is a businessman who loves working with people whose ideas could become real business disrupters. The kind of businesses Burch has bought shares in at his company, Burch Creative Capital range from wireless power charging technology such as that of Powermat, office space planning and furniture sales in Poppin, and other household and fashion brands. Burch also has bought gifts from some of these companies either for himself or for family and friends, and he decided to share them with others in a company blog post. Burch recommends buying things like a Trademark Cooper Cage Tote if your loved one likes quality handbags, a U.S. Jaclean Zero-Gravity Massage Chair if they’re an elderly person who needs a chair to relax in, a Barbour Gisburne jacket or maybe just small sweets from Fatty Sundays or Pretzables.  Check releasefact.com.

It’s quite remarkable to know how Chris Burch came from rural New York and the campus of Ithaca College to become a billionaire in 2012. He began his first business at that college by selling sweaters that he would buy from a nearby factory and make a little extra money delivering them to customers. This small business soon had enough demand that Burch decided to finance the opening of a factory and department stores for his new Eagle Eye Apparel company, and sales began to soar in the millions. He and his brother owned the company for over 20 years until they sold it off. By then Burch had started taking up other investments as a partner of the Internet Capital Group and a key investor in Guggenheim Partners. Burch also was a joint owner in Tory Burch, a fashion group named for his wife at the time, and after selling his stake in that company he started Burch Creative Capital (prnewswire.com).

Some of Chris Burch’s biggest acquisitions have been residential and commercial real estate including partial ownership of Faena Hotel + Universe and majority stakes in Nihiwatu Resort, the recently named world’s best vacation destination (http://www.architecturaldigest.com/story/christopher-maya-j-christopher-burch-hamptons-house-article).   Outside of business Burch is involved with charity as a former board member of the Rothman Institute Orthopedic Foundation and the Tilton School. He also produced a New York Times reviewed movie known as “Watch It.”

Sujit Proudhry Speaks at a Presidential Roundtable in Ukraine

On July 19, 2017, Sujit Choudhry definitely exhibited his leadership powers as he spoke at a presidentialist forum in Kiev, Ukraine regarding the current constitutional changes that were occurring in that country. The Center For Policy and Reform is a major think tank in Ukraine and they hosted the workshop.

There is no question that Sujit Choudhry felt it was a major privilege to be invited to this forum. Choudhry also believes participation in the forum provides an excellent opportunity to discuss some of the instabilities of Ukraine’s current system (constitutionaltransisitons.org).  Choudhry feels that this democracy has been unstable because of a number of reasons, including the fact there is too much power concentration in the Ukrainian presidency, weak political parties, a weak electoral system, and an improper concentration of powers between the president and the prime minister.

Choudhry was joined by many other well-respected members of the international community, including Sumit Bisarya of International DEA, Thomas Sidelious of Dalarna University, and a number of other noted Ukrainian cabinet officials and advisors to Ukraine heads of state.

To his credit, Choudhry has lectured in dozens of countries. He has been looked on by a number of emerging democracies as an expert in the nature of reform. For a country in transition such as Ukraine, there is truly no better expert to look to than Choudhry, who has dedicated his life’s work and mission to fostering growth in new democracies.  Additional article on law.nyu.edu.

For Choudhry, the main issue of importance is to ensure that all democracies adhere to a strong and power central constitutional document ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/sujit-choudhry-738656100).  Choudhry believes that emerging democracies must ensure that all decision are based on the constitution, otherwise they will fall into dishonor and disfavor (patch.com).  We all can be extremely thankful that individuals such as Sujit Choudhry are “keeping these new democracies honest” so to speak.

Dr. Mark Holterman Proves That Volunteering Is The Most Valuable Commodity

The International Pediatrics Specialists Alliance for the Children of Vietnam, more commonly known as IPSAC-VN, is a health organization that offers medical services provided by world wide volunteers to children in Vietnam. Their goal is to provide medical aid along with training exchanges and educational support to help modernize the health of future generations in Vietnam. Though the money that is donated to this organization helps the ongoing efforts through supplies and health costs, IPSAC-VN is most supported by the medical volunteers that give their time and knowledge to help. One of the organizations greatest volunteers and contributors is Dr. Mark Holterman. More detailed info here.

Dr. Holterman feels that his greatest commodity is his knowledge and time, both of which he provides everywhere he can. He has been a professor since 2011 at the University of Illinois College of Medicine while serving as the attending pediatric surgeon at two medical facilities, Advocate Christ Children’s Hospital and St. Francis Medical Center.  Check this.  Dr. Holterman serves as the CEO of Mariam Global Health where he uses his college major in biology to do research on ground breaking technologies such as stem cell regeneration, cancer treatments, and immunosuppression treatments that have successfully been used to treat life changing illnesses such as diabetes and thyroiditis, see health.usnews.com.

With such a full schedule it would be much easier for Dr. Holterman to simply donate monetary funds to IPSAC-VN to further their humanitarian efforts, but the time he donates gives a much greater value to the organization. Dr. Holterman uses his vast knowledge to train other volunteer surgeons on the advanced medical procedures that need to be provided to the children of Vietnam. Read this.  Learning on sight from an expert in the field creates more high quality surgeons to continue the work that is being done. Dr. Holterman also stands as a symbol of the power that volunteering can give to the world. IPSAC-VN knows the value that medically educated volunteers provides and Dr. Mark Holterman helps to show all the good work that can be accomplished through the donation of time.

Dr. David Samadi Take on Prostate Cancer

News from Mitt Romney, the former Republican presidential nominee, indicates that he had successfully undertaken a prostate surgery. The operation was conducted to address a slow-growing tumor diagnosed earlier in the year. The news comes to affirm his probability of running for the U.S Senate seat in Utah. The operation was conducted at UC Irvine Hospital in California by Dr. Thomas Ahlering. Sources have it that the former presidential nominee prognosis is good. Romney joins a group of 161,360 men diagnosed in 2017. Prostate cancer is prominent in the elderly. Statistics show that 60 percent of diagnosis are on men aged above 65 years. It’s rare to fall ill at the age of below 40 years. Romney turned 70 in March last year.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a condition that occurs in men usually over 50 years old and is characterized by an enlarged prostate. As men age, it is natural for the prostate to become enlarge. BPH is a noncancerous growth of the cells within the prostate gland. By age 60, more than half of men have BPH. By age 85, about 90 percent of men have BPH, but only about 30 percent will have symptoms. The signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia are related to urination because the enlarging of the prostate puts pressure on the urethra which decreases the flow of urine. Signs and symptoms include a weak or slow urinary stream, incomplete emptying of the bladder, frequent urination, urinary urgency, a urinary stream that starts and stops, waking up often at night to urinate, straining to urinate, dripping and leaking after urination. #health #healthtips #bph #enlargeprostate #drdavidsamadi #menshealth

A post shared by David B Samadi, MD (@drdavidsamadi) on

Romney joins a group of U.S politicians treated for the disease. Early 2013, Colin Powel, a former Secretary of State underwent an operation to remove the prostate gland. In 2002, while running for president as a Democratic candidate, John Kelly was treated for prostate cancer. The disease has had no recurrence. If a diagnosis gets made, a patient has two options. He may choose to perform surgery or opt for radiation. As a urologist/oncologist, Dr. David Samadi says it’s important to discuss the pros and cons with the patient. He recommends performing surgery if it hasn’t spread and is localized. Studies have shown that surgery yields better results than radiation.

On the other hand, radiation lead to the growth or development of secondary cancers that are associated with the side effects of radiation. It’s also difficult to operate after a radiation session. Chances of beating cancer reduce to 30 percent if radiation doesn’t work and the disease continues to thrive. According to Dr. David Samadi, it’s crucial for men awaiting surgery to seek information regarding the Doctor’s experience.

Dr. David Samadi is best known for his work in urology. On the other hand, his role at Lenox Hill Hospital sets him apart in the group of Urologists. There, he is the chief of robotic surgery, a new technological advancement that has led to high rates of successful operations. Dr. David Samadi has been on the frontline in the development of innovative surgical methods. Throughout his career, Samadi has developed a specialty and gained experience in treating prostate, kidney, and bladder cancer. During his career, he developed a treatment that involved minimal invasions and consequently, leading to reduced recovery time for the patients.

Lime Crime Takes On Chinese Market

Launching Lime Crime in China was almost an impossible task. China’s not so vegan friendly regulations around wholesale of cosmetics, created some hurdles that Lime Crime had to uniquely develop ways around. Lime Crime teamed up with LA based cosmetic company called Revolve to create separation from any and all counterfeit “Lime Crime” selling out of China. Revolve gave Lime Crime legitimacy and a platform for users to explore the brand. Revolve is an e-commerce fashion platform that, at the time, was venturing into cosmetics. This venture proved to be very helpful for the new brand Lime Crime cosmetics. According to the article from WARC, breaking into the Chinese market is not an easy task.

But Lime Crime managed to get a foot in the door and is making headway. Lime Crime is known for there lip plush that offer an assortment of colors that are matte and long lasting which was attracting the interest of counterfeiters claiming to be selling the Lime Crime brand. Which is why the partnership with Revolve was such an important step for Lime Crime because it helped them create a safe place where their consumers knew where to locate the correct products, non animal cruelty products. Revolve also created a platform for continued advertisement.

Granted, Lime Crime was not completely depended on Revolve for its success, just a platform to help get it’s footing which it achieved. Lime Crime is looking to be the new, fresh, worldly conscious brand coming out of China. Lime Crime is still on the up and up but looks to be great views for it’s future.

Republicans Scramble to Save Pennsylvania Majority

The End Citizens United grassroots organization hopes to ensure that its very name becomes a reality. The group was founded in 2015 in opposition to a 2010 court ruling that overturned voter and donor reform. This ruling practically gave the power over political elections to big donors. The ECU began with the amazing figure of over $25 million in funding and hopes to increase this number to $35 million before the 2018 election cycle.

One of the ways ECU is working toward its mission is by supporting Democratic candidates who support election reform. In the past, they have helped Elizabeth Warren, Rick Feingold, and Nancy Pelosi. The latest candidate that has garnered support is Conor Lamb who is running for the empty Senate seat for the 18th District in Pennslyvania.

Lamb is a 33-year-old former Federal Prosecutor and a veteran of the Marines. He is running for the seat vacated by longtime Senator Tim Murphy. Murphy stepped down amid talk of an extramarital affair and a request that his mistress gets an abortion. Lamb’s opponent, Rick Saccone is a 59-year-old former Intelligence Officer and past state representative.

Saccone has the benefit of large donations by such groups as the Congressional Leadership Fund and the billionaire Rickets family who has poured millions into the campaign. ProTrump group 45Comm has spent over $500,00 on the 30-second television ad. Mike Pence and President Trump have also scrambled to ensure Saccone’s seat is guaranteed.

Conor Lamb’s numbers surged when ECU came out in support of the candidate. Tiffany Muller, the president of the organization, believes that Lamb has strong roots in his district and his centrist views make him more palatable to cross over voters. Lamb is running on a platform that promises attention to better jobs and infrastructure for his constituents. He also promises to keep Social Security and Medicare programs strongly funded.

Republicans are focusing on this race, despite the fact that Trump won Pennsylvania with a 20 percentage point margin over Hillary Clinton. Since the Inauguration, Democrats have picked up 34 legislative and Senate seats, along with the win in a governor’s race. By comparison, Republicans have only managed to pick up 4 state legislature wins. Trump and his supporters worry about the trend toward blue and they are bringing out the big guns to support Lamb’s opponent.

ECU feels strongly that they must defeat the idea that the person with the biggest donors wins the race. They want the playing field to be leveled by overturning Citizen’s United power and influence. By supporting young candidates such as Conor Lamb, they are achieving their mission. The special election for the seat promises to be an important part of the long-term plan.

Securus Technologies adds GovPayNet to Their Portfolio

If you have been following the latest business news, chances are you have heard that Securus, a purveyor of technology solutions aimed at law enforcement, corrections, and public safety, has recently acquired “Govpaynet.” If you’re unfamiliar with “Govpaynet,” they process debit and credit card payments for several government entities. Securus Technologies, Inc. and “Govpaynet” have joined forces to essentially become a one-stop shop for government payment services and technology solutions. Since 1986, Securus has been a recognized leader in civil and criminal technology solutions, providing communication services to over 1 million inmates throughout the U.S and Mexico. The recent acquisition of “Govpaynet” significantly adds to the company’s already impressive portfolio and provides customers with a convenient payment method to satisfy parking violations, court fines, and much more.

 

Securus Technologies, Inc. routinely looks for ways to provide value to their customers; “Govpaynet” along with Jpay, which was acquired in 2015, helps accomplish this goal. Adding these two companies to their portfolio has allowed Securus to enjoy exponential growth; in fact, the Dallas, TX-based company has been ranked as one of the fastest growing companies in its segment. These acquisitions have also expanded Securus’ reach; they now have the ability to tap into “Jpay’s” current customer base, which operates in over 33 state prisons, as well as Govpaynet’s existing customers, which encompasses 2,300 agencies in the U.S. What does this all mean, exactly? Basically, in addition to an already impressive array of products like calling services, video visitation, and information management, Securus can now also offer, through Jpay, email services, tablet products, and inmate payment services. By adding Govpaynet, Securus Technologies is now in a position where they can also provide payment services, which makes paying for things like publicly administered child support, court fines, property tax assessment payments, and parking violations much easier.
