Stream Energy, a major supplier of energy services based in Dallas Texas and a long-time participant in corporate philanthropy, was featured on Patch earlier this year for their company’s philanthropic efforts through the founding of Stream Cares, a dedicated corporate charity foundation that put a formal face on Stream Energy’s long history of ongoing philanthropic activities.
Featured in the Patch’s article are many examples of Stream Cares’ more recent philanthropic efforts. After Hurricane Harvey, Stream Cares partnered with Hope Supply Co. to help alleviate the suffering of those who lost their homes. While many corporations simply throw money at a problem and walk away, Stream Energy decided to utilize their charity foundation to get far more involved and provide a positive experience for those affected, and particularly for the children affected by the storm. In order to do so, Stream Cares covered the cost for more than 1,000 children to attend the annual event Splash for Hope.
In another tragedy, when multiple tornadoes struck Northern Texas before Christmas in 2016, Stream Energy associates actively teamed up with the Salvation Army to raise funds for those in need of assistance. The company then matched the funds that had been raised to double the amount gathered from donations.
However, Stream Energy does not only assist during natural disasters and tragedies. Ongoing efforts to support our military and veterans is also a priority to them. One example of those efforts is Operation Once in a Lifetime, where Stream Cares stepped in to provide financial and moral support for veterans and donated transportation for the less fortunate veterans to be able to attend a special lunch at a popular Texas restaurant. Stream Cares then co-hosted the American Girl Doll Experience for 10 daughters of military members and stream associates got personally involved by supporting the girls through the event.
While Texas is among the least generous states, Stream Energy, through their Stream Cares foundation, is doing their best to make up for the lack of philanthropic and altruistic efforts around the state, and they regularly make it a core principal of their daily operations.
According to financial expert and economist Ted Bauman, assets such as personal data, 401k plans and even cash should be protected above and beyond everyday means. He points out that criminals use data to then steal monies from bank accounts, funds from other forms of savings such as retirement and 401K’s and then go on to even steal individuals’ identities, in many cases. This is becoming a greater and greater concern as more and more sensitive information is being stores online and in encoded databases, but Ted has a variety of suggestions that can help prevent such a scenario from coming your way.
First, Ted Bauman says that everyone should have vital documents such as birth certificates, social security cards, passports and other important papers scanned and uploaded into a remote file storing service, so that no matter what was physically taken, you can always retrieve at least the photocopies of your initial information, which will make proving your own identity easier in such a crisis.
Secondly, and perhaps surprisingly Ted Bauman is not a fan of using credit cards and debit cards for shopping in person at stores or pulling money out of an ATM. He says that the data encryption used for these types of devices are not out of reach for criminals who specialize in stealing data, and these are some of the most common ways that credit card fraud exists.
Also, Ted Bauman advises that people put some money into a safe, private account such as i_Account whose headquarters are stationed in Hong Kong. While that may seem like overkill to the average American, using such a bank would be responsible, since i-Account is such a highly rated financial institution with very little likelihood of the money disappearing due to high-tech criminals. As a side note, there are no conversion fees associated with this type of account.
Ted Bauman was raised in Washington, DC, studied in South Africa, has post-graduate degrees in both history and economics, and is a world-renowned public speaker, author, editor and economist.

When it comes to the political world, there is nothing as time-consuming as planning a political campaign. They are expensive and time-consuming. It requires strategy and coordination that one man cannot achieve on their own. However, if a political candidate receives funds and has a team then his/ her political campaign becomes a success. Fundraising events produce plenty of data that is time-consuming and often than not difficult to analyze. The information campaign teams have can be damaging to the campaign in the end if not handled appropriately.
NGP VAN is an organization that helps campaign teams and managers handle the data they obtain during campaigns and fundraiser events. They assist their clients to win by designing integrated campaign technology. The technology enables campaign teams to use the data they collect and implement them in their campaign strategies. NGP VAN provides a financial relief for political candidates since they can safely use technology to monitor their campaigns. Over the past election years, Federal Election Commission reports that on average winning candidates spend approximately $1.5 million on campaigns.
The use of technology helps candidates to manage their campaigns easily and without too much expense. Using NGP, campaign managers are able to create and organize the data and information they collect. The organization of data is possible with the help of charts, graphs, and online dashboards. A majority of the Democrats campaigns including Barak Obama’s fundraising, compliance, and voter campaigns used the NGP VAN software. The software makes it possible for campaigns to obtain funds using digital fundraising platforms.
The software also helps campaign teams bring individual donors as part of the fundraising team. Using platforms like NGP with other tools like SMS, email, and social media, helps make work easier when it comes to fundraiser campaigns. Such digital platforms give the campaign team the opportunity to consolidate all online donations. It also makes it easy for individual donors to contribute a small amount regularly throughout the campaign period. By consolidating the list of online sponsors, the campaign team can send out messages and reach many people.
The technology, in turn, allows the donors to monitor their donations. The technology helps in fighting the notion that political fundraisers are a charity collection platform. This notion makes it difficult for the candidates, volunteers, and staff to ask for money. Instead, using this technology helps to emphasize that contributing in a political fundraiser is not a philanthropic act.
The radical right has always peddled anti semitic points of view. While this will certainly surprise no one, who has even been paying a modicum of attention over the past few years, the radical left has also begun to sprout anti semitic views with a far greater rate of regularity.
To Israeli-Americans like Adam Milstein, this is not an acceptable state of affairs. Adam Milstein also finds himself worried about the movements of radicalized Muslims who are also known to spread anti semitic propaganda whenever possible.
All of these groups may share the same misguided beliefs but they each have a different manner of expressing them. The traditions might change from religion to religion. To those who are forced to live out the consequences of these viewpoints, the end result of this bigotry is more or less the same.
North Americans and Europe have both been forced to watch the rise of these groups in horror. It may seem as if the far left should be shocked and dismayed by these behaviors. However, these groups are able to come together and bond over a series of common enemies.
None of these groups are too fond of Western cultural influences that are making their way into their daily living. The groups also despise the same freedom of speech that Adam Milstein fights for. Milstein also finds himself wondering how the far left could find themselves closely tied to such hateful groups.
In the mind of Adam Milstein, the reason for this is a rather simple one: a view of history that is woefully distorted. They view Israel as an oppressive nation and this is what keeps them from knowing the truth. This odd allegiance is even allowing these ideas to spill into the mainstream.
These ideas must be eradicated from the mainstream point of view before it is too late. Now that anti semitic sentiments are even making their way to college campuses, the time has come for serious actions to be taken. Otherwise, we increase the risk of potentially existing in a society where antisemitic points of views will start to become the cultural default.
Waiakea water is a Hawaiian-based bottled water company originally founded in 2012. Unlike many filtering processes that exist within the industry, Waiakea looked to approach their product from a different perspective. Using real Hawaiian volcanic water from the Mauna Lao volcano, Waiakea’s product is unlike anything else available on the market today. Their mission is to deliver the highest quality beverage to its consumers and to do so with the greatest amount of respect and care to the environment. Many competing companies often look to their bottom line to drive their business model. Waiakea’s dedication is to the land that produces their product and to the employees who work every day to deliver its product to their devout consumers.
One-way Waiakea is making a difference and setting a new standard for the industry is by using low emission vehicles to deliver their products. Carbon emissions are an on-going issue for the environment as the demand for global commerce increases every year. Waiakea is focused on doing their part by producing the least amount of carbon bi-product as possible during the transportation process. It is unavoidable for growing companies to have no impact on the environment with the transportation methods in today’s world, but Waiakea stays committed to adhering to their model of putting the environment ahead of their own financial interests. Another way they implement this standard is by giving a percentage of their revenues to local charities and non-profit organizations. They also donate their product to places in need, most notably countries on the African continent, which are in desperate need of a constant supply of fresh water.
Waiakea approaches another problem within the water bottle industry, which is obviously, the water bottle itself. Every year, billions of water bottles are used by consumers as the demand for purified water increases. Not all of these units will reach the recycling center and many will bediscarded into landfills or onto the Earth’s surface. It is estimated that it takes roughly one-thousand years for the standard water bottle to decompose. Waiakea’s bottle was designed to decompose in roughly fifteen years and will hopefullyset the standard for all water bottle companies to follow in the years to come.
Ronald Fowlkes was a member of the US Marines and a member of the St Louis Police Department as a SWAT Team officer. It was in these two position that Fowlkes gained so much knowledge in the world of law enforcement equipment. He is now co-owner of First Spear, one of the worlds biggest innovators in police and military equipment.
Ronald Fowlkes first heard of Eagle Industries during his time spent in the military. While picking his equipment up to put it on, he always noticed the company logo on the highest quality equipment available. When he left the military to pursue a career in law enforcement, he saw the very same logo.
Fowlkes says the equipment he used in the military was well designed and lasted a very long time. Fowlkes decided to join Eagle Industries. “In fact,” Fowlkes began “We like to tell the world that we are the Gucci or Ferrari of the tactical [equipment] world.”
Since joining Eagle Industries, he is now the co-owner of First Spear, one of the subsidiaries of Eagle Industries. As co-owner of First Spear, Fowlkes begins his days taking his children to school and then heading to the office. At the office he makes phone calls with clientele throughout the day. In addition to dealing with clients, he oversees large orders and makes sure that production in on track to begin packaging and delivering.
Under the leadership, the already successful, First Spear was able to expand even further. Fowlkes says the company is always looking for new ways to innovate their equipment; First Spear is always trying to make the gear lighter without sacrificing protection.
Fowlkes never doubted that the company would be successful because he knew first hand that the quality of First Spear’s equipment was miles ahead of any competitors. His first hand experience with the equipment also makes him the perfect choice for selling First Spear equipment. When he is trying to convince new clients to sign on with First Spear, he relies on his experiences in the field to explain why First Spear is the best product on the market.
First Spear creates everything a police officer or military officer might require. They create holsters, belts, bullet proof vests, and helmets. They even create casual ware for officers to purchase and show support to the brand.
OSI Food Solutions is an American company with a global audience that provides its customers with customized food solutions that please any regional or national market. Recently the company began to double its chicken production capacity in Toledo, Spain by adding a high capacity production line there. This brings the total production capacity to 24,000 tons of chicken from the 12,000 ton limit it was at prior to the move. In Toledo, OSI Food Solutions can now produce a combined total of over 45,000 tons of chicken, pork, and beef products, and the move will also bring more jobs to the facility.
OSI Food Solutions has had the Toledo, Spain food processing plant in place since 1990, and the Managing Director of OSI Spain, José María del Río, expressed the fact that the region has been seeing an increased desire for chicken products over the years. He is not expecting this to change, and the new capacity should allow OSI to satisfy the needs of its customers and grow with their desires for more options. Along with the upgrades and increase of space, the company took extra care to ensure that the new facility added new measures to improve its sustainability into the future. Along with recycling heat that its equipment produces to be reused, the facility’s updated equipment has allowed it to cut down on its consumption of electricity by roughly 1/5th of what it was before the changes were made.
OSI Food Solutions is a $6.1 billion company that has been in existence since 1909. It has been a top 100 American food company for years, and it’s CEO, Sheldon Lavin, has been pointed out as being a large part of the reason for this. Part of this has to do with the fact that he took OSI from being a domestic food company, that served the Illinois region, to a worldwide food company that has facilities and plants in 16 countries. One of the key factors for it being chosen as a top 100 American food company is the fact that it continues to put its customers first by offering them a variety of food choices including custom possibilities that are created by its own chefs in its testing kitchen.
While there are many economic drivers in the US, the construction industry is far from ignorable. Going by the jobs—18,000— the sector created in July last year, and the number —6000—it set up in July this year despite the economic imbalance caused by presidential elections, one can only marvel at the resilience the industry is demonstrating. One factor that enables the construction industry to create many jobs each month is the presence of many small companies within it. Many companies are specializing in offering different services in the construction sector. For example, Aloha Construction has demonstrated an unparalleled ability to provide roofing and roof repair services capable of attaining A+ BBB rating. However, Aloha Construction is also known for other quality services such as guttering services, siding Services, door and window replacement Services.
Aloha Construction is proud to be part of the residential segment of the construction industry that is praised for creating over 6,000 jobs in July. The company focuses on Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. Since it was founded by Dave Farbaky who is the sitting CEO of the enterprise, Aloha Constructions has completed over 18,000 projects in the Lake Zurich and Bloomington region. Clients prefer to seek home repair services from Aloha Constructions because the company is known for three things: quality services, professionalism, and cost effectiveness.
Recently, Aloha Construction published an article that explained to homeowners how to take care of pets when their homes are being repaired. The company is well aware that paint, nails, and noise present in construction sites are harmful to dogs. The article received rave reviews from clients who linked the company’s attention to pets’ safety to thoroughness in their construction works. Part of the article encouraged pet owners to exercise with their pets, introduce new and fun games for pets, and maintain a routine that a pet is used to.
