Gottlieb and Weisbrod Reunited

They’ve been apart for so long but, after twenty years, Jacob Gottlieb and Stuart Weisbrod will finally be collaborating in the same office space once again. The pair initially began working together when they cofounded Merlin Biomed Group, an investment management company dedicated to improving the healthcare system and preventing people from going into debt on account of unpaid medical bills.

The company found mild success during the late 90’s and most of the 2000’s but ended up dissolving in 2007 at which point the pair went their separate ways. Following their separation, Gottlieb went on to become the founder of Visium Asset Management while Weisbrod ended up founding Iguana Healthcare Partners. Despite their separation, however, it seems they were destined to make their way back to each other. Visium managed to survive the stock market crash of 2008 and become an $8 billion company with branches in some of the most famous cities around the world.

However, their success all came crashing down in 2016. It seems a whistleblower discovered there had been numerous instances of mismarking and insider trading within the company and finally went public with the information. While Gottlieb himself never faced any criminal charges, he did consent to pay out more than $10 million in restitution fees. After the company went under, he had to start from scratch with a new project known as Altium Capital, a hedge fund looking to make a significant impact on the pharmaceutical industry. While it has yet to be approved by the FDA, it does offer some promising results. This new project is what has brought the two together once again and they will be collaborating on this new venture. While it’s unclear how successful it will be, it is expected that the outcome will be quite remarkable overall.

Matt Siekielski, the COO and executive VP of NexBank Capital, Inc., expressed the bank’s excitement in being part of the project. In fact, he said that both the Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity and the Dallas Neighborhood Homes boast a strong record of aiding lower-income families to get affordable homes, particularly in the North Texas community.

Acquisition of College Savings Bank

Early in December 2015, NexBank announced its acquisition of Princeton, New Jersey-based College Savings Bank, which provides a staggering 529 college savings programs. Even though no further details regarding the deal were disclosed, NexBank Capital’s CEO John Holt said that College Savings Bank would retain its branding and name as well as maintain its current operations as NexBank’s division. He also stressed that the acquisition was a win-win transaction for the parties involved.

Michael Lacey, Continues To Receive Praises, Awards Many Years After Getting His Ph.D

Michael Lacey is a member of the American Mathematical Society, a position he has held since 2012. Being in this list is one of the greatest achievements for Mr. Lacey.

Prior to receiving an invitation to occupy this lofty position, as one of the few elite mathematicians in the country, Michael has had several awards that have shown his prowess in different capacities.

Most of the awards that Lacey has received are conferred to him for his own extraordinary efforts in the field of mathematics. There are others that he has received from colleagues after partnering in certain projects.

Before And After Doctorate

Michael Lacey was born on September 26, 1959. He got his Ph.D. in 1987 after presenting facts that touched on various complex mathematical issues to a panel that was led by Michael’s friend Walter Philipp. Later, Lacey and Philipp worked on a project called the Central Limit Theorem, when they met at the University of North Carolina.

During the thesis presentation back in 1987, Lacey spoke of iterated logarithm law together with its empirical characteristic function.

But as later emerged, Lacey’s thesis had a profound impact on helping many mathematical students solve even harder mathematical problems. Some of the others areas the thesis now touch include harmonic analysis, ergodic theory and the law of probability.

While Michael Lacey was working at Louisiana State University, he met with Philipp and together they proofed to all present that it is possible to trust the central limit theorem. Read more: Michael Lacey | GAtech and Michael Lacey | Wikipedia

He did not stay at Louisiana State University for long thus left for Indiana University. Here, Lacey held different positions and used the 7 years at IU to mentor undergraduates, graduates, and postdocs.

In those seven years, Lacey received the National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship and at the same time started learning on bilinear Hilbert Transform. He later wrote his book on this. He collaborated with Christoph Thiele on a conjecture project and the two won the Salem Prize.

Immediately after winning the joint award, Michael Lacey left Indiana University. His next stop was at the Georgia Institute Technology as a professor. While here, Lacey received the Guggenheim Fellowship award on a project he worked with a friend called Xiaochun Li.

Milan Kordestani Manages A Successful Farm And Organic Food Service

Starting up a successful company is no easy task, there are many people who try and fail on a daily basis because it is highly competitive out there these days. Milan Kordestani has been able to master the techniques required to start and run a successful company with steady growth each year at an age when most haven’t even decided what they want to do with their life.

Milan Kordestani owns and runs Milan Farms and is an up and coming entrepreneur that is a young first-year college student that attended Colorado College. Milan wants to continue on his agricultural journey to create quality products and he hopes it is just the starting point of bigger things he wants to accomplish. He is already a highly renowned equestrian with healthy success as a writer and CEO of a business. Milan is also a passionate horse rider that has been riding since ten years of age that has competed all over the country. He even earned second place in 2016 during a world championship horse show.

It was apparent at a young age that Milan was destined for big things and he even showed interest in agriculture at a young age when he enjoyed working in the garden. It all expanded from there, as Milan continued to try his own techniques when it came to farming and he continued to make increased profits. In 2015, Milan started up his own company known as Milan Farms and it has become widely popular for organic produce consisting of eggs, poultry, saffron and more.

Milan Farms offers authentic products that are organic and their saffron is 100 percent pure. Milan Kordestani works hard to ensure quality and high standards in his business, aiming to meet the needs of his clients while maintaining a successful business.

The Sky Is The Limit At GreenSky Credit

GreenSky Credit originated at much the same time as many of the other tech start ups in Silicon Valley. The company is located in Atlanta, Georgia, and it operates online to help provide consumers with online loan access. David Zalik is the current Chief Executive Officer of the firm.

David Zalik is one of the co-founders of GreenSky Credit. The company has been in existence since 2006. He is a savvy entrepreneur, and this technology financial startup company rapidly became very popular and very successful. They have arranged loans to homeowners for home improvements and other purposes. By 2012, the company reportedly arranged approximately $5 billion in loans for its customers. GreenSky Credit works with numerous federally insured financial lending institutions that provide the funding.

Unlike many other tech startups that offer their employees free lunches and a host of other extra benefits, David does not run his company in the same way. He thinks differently in many ways, and that way of thinking has proven to be a huge financial step for the company. While some other CEO’s opt to maintain their companies as privately owned entities for different reasons, David Zalik thought differently. He saw the potential of taking the company public, and the company did go public in May of 2018. It has been reported by Forbes that David is a billionaire, with paper assets of approximately $2.5 billion.

David has an interesting background and early life before his success story at GreenSky Credit. He grew up in the United States as a toddler and onward. His family moved from Israel to Alabama when he was 4 years old. From his young days, he was always fascinated with the computer, and he displayed a great aptitude for learning. He achieved an exceptionally high testing score at age 12. He was then invited by Auburn University to enroll in some courses there. His father worked at the University. He never attended high school, and instead he went on to begin his studies full time at the University at the age of 14.

Stream Energy’s Philanthropic Efforts Featured on Dallas Patch

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.

The Vigilant Work of Dr. Mark McKenna

There’s so much that can be said about Dr. Mark McKenna’s work with his budding new company OVME. The new company whose name is pronounced “of me” is causing up quite a stir because of the way that they conduct their business within the medical field. OVME is a considered to be a boutique aesthetics company. This means that the company is dedicated towards cosmetic and elective procedures. The best part about this boutique format is that clients are not required to go to a hospital to receive their services. This frees a month to complete other tasks and makes the prospect of cosmetic outpatient procedures more appealing.

“Dr. Mark Mckenna’s OVME Slays Cosmetic Service Boutique Game” is an article featured on CrunchBase that talks about the exceptional work being done by this facility. It is an innovative concept that was hatched by Dr. Mark McKenna after recent success with other business endeavors. The concept of cosmetic surgery is very polarizing for many people. The reason for this is that some people believe that altering one’s appearance is vain or wasteful. On the other side, there are people who believe that it is a way for them to achieve self-esteem or look at the way that they feel on the inside. For Dr. Mark McKenna he wants to make sure that his clients are happy and are receiving the medical service they desire.

OVME is becoming popular because it offers the medical service that clients desire in the small office format. Clients are not being required to visit a local hospital in order to get their services, they can simply work in an office visit. For those clients that are looking for an even more personalized experience, Dr. Mark McKenna is working on an application that may allow them to receive home visits from medical professionals. It is his goal that he can streamline the cosmetics process in such a way that it can operate similarly to other ordering technologies such as Uber and even food services. The application that he is developing would allow clients to speak with doctors through the app in a visual format. He continues to work on that project vigilantly.

Shervin Pishevar Notes that Current Policies May not Work; an Opportunity to Try New Plans

Shervin Pishevar, the founder of Sharper Capital, seemed to be optimistic and pessimistic about the future of the United States economy in his fifty tweets that took around 21 hours to complete. In a session that seemed to portray gapes in the current administration’s weakness in decision making, the Uber investor seemed to spell doom on some of the policies that have since taken center stage of the new administration. The investor uses the current state of the American economy to forecast what will happen in the next few years and the overall future of the country’s economy.

Shervin Pishevar tweets acknowledge the existing undesirable conditions such as the spreading inflation that is hurting almost every family in the country. It is true that the country has been experiencing inflation over the last couple of years. However, the government is responding by implementing radical policies that seems to rock other nations out of arguably the largest economy in the world. These policies are there trying to enclose people with higher purchasing power to small goods and services in the country, which causes inflation.

Other issues that are facing the country such as low rates of employment and the systematic economic crisis seems to be addressed by poorly formulated and implemented policies that have never worked in other countries around the world. Shervin Pishevar notes that the declining state of the country’s stock market cannot be changed through local solutions that are biased towards the progress of other nations. These trends can only be resolved by creating an open market that allows products and services from other countries.

Shervin Pishevar perceives the current trends will continue to prevail and no radical policy will bring immediate changes. However, there is grimmer of home to the economy that seems to be on its deathbed that the future means useful to the American citizens. Focusing on the growth of the United States economies should be of paramount importance rather than giving much attention to policies that will prevent the growth of other nations. However, failure in some systems should set an opportunity for different strategies to be implemented.
