The influence of good leadership by Clay Siegall in medical breakthroughs

If you personally know anyone that has dealt with cancer in this lifetime, you understand that the disease drains one completely, and that beating it needs a lot of care with the best quality medical solutions. Well, one person that has a dream to deal with this menace in completeness is Clay Siegall and his company, Seattle Genetics. The recent success that has been enjoyed by the clinical stage company is enough evidence that he might just single handedly make a breakthrough in the field.

Seattle Genetics was started in 1997. When he was starting out, Clay did not have many resources. The dream to treat most if not all of the cancer types affecting modern humanity was the main goal for him. Well, currently, the company already has a drug that has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of several types of lymphomas, and there are about 12 other drugs that are in the testing stage. The company is doing so well that they are already listed on NASDAQ as SGEN. The shares trade fairly well and have been in fact improving over the past couple of years.

In a bid to expand the company even further, Clay has embarked on a recruitment drive. They are hoping to get at least 100 more employees to assist them with their new drugs testing processes. They have reported that one of the drugs they are testing is doing really well and it is hoped that it will be approved within the year. The drug is also being tested for use to treat different types of lymphomas.

The company’s sales have also been really good. In the previous financial year, they made sales of more than a quarter million dollars from their distributors all over the world. In Canada, they are assisted by Takeda Pharmaceuticals in distributing the drug. The drug has also been approved for sale in 60 other countries besides the US and Canada. Clay Siegall says that he has reached this level of success because he never gave up on his vision, and that he hopes that he will indeed be part of the team that will cure cancer once and for all.

What Happens To Your Body While Freezing To Death

 

To experience freezing to death is something that a person will never want to have happen to them in their lifetime. There is nothing creepier than a body becoming hypothermic and then freezing to death.

 

This is what happens in order: First thing that happens is the blood flow inside of a person begins to constrict. In other words, it seems to get thicker, almost like a jello. It is because the body’s blood is made to keep the organs warm and when the temperature goes down, the capillaries are so close to the skin, the blood works the organs harder, making a person feel colder by the minute.

Then the heart rate begins to pump faster and blood pressure rises. The body begins to shiver because it is trying its best to keep warm. Slowly the skin begins to lose its color, turning the skin a shade of white. It is the start of frostbite. Then peeing is the next feeling that overcomes a person in the beginning stages of hypothermia. Why? Because the blood flow has moved away from the skin into the vital organs to protect them. Later on, it may be impossible to stop the flow because a person may have lost all control.

 

As the cold seeps through the muscles, it starts to become difficult to move. After so long, the body can’t move and brain fog sets in. Next the arms and legs begin to turn blue, the heart rate decreases as it pumps less blood and the mind begins to hallucinate from lack of oxygen. The end result: death.

Livio Bisterzo, Creator of Hippeas

Why did the founder of Hippeas and the CEO of Green Park Brands. Livio Bisterzo, choose chickpeas instead of maybe lentils for his new snack? He said that the trend towards products based on plants and the fact that chickpeas are one of the hottest industry trends led them to focus on chickpeas as the “hero ingredient”. It took countless rounds of product development to get to the bite, crunch, taste, shape, and texture that they wanted.

Hippeas organic chickpea puff snack is vegan, gluten-free, kosher, has only 100 calories to a pack, has three grams of protein, is a good source of fiber, is low in fat, and comes in flavors including Pepper Power, Sweet & Smokin’, Herbs We Trust, and Far Out Fajita. These organic chickpea puffs are healthy and flavorful as well as being addictively delicious.

Launched on June 13, 2016, the original retail partners included Starbucks, Holland and Barrett, and Boots. Hippeas became the newest product in Starbucks’ grab-and-go snacks with the Vegan White Cheddar and the Far Out Fajita being available in over 7,500 Starbucks locations across the United States. The merchandising lead for Starbucks Retail Branded Partnerships, Carolyn Chinn, said that they are constantly seeking new food items that are enjoyable and which also cater to dietary needs.

The identity of Hippeas is geared toward a modern ‘hippie’ and millennial generation and also a partnering with Farm Africa on a joint initiative ‘Food for Good’ that gives back by supporting eastern African chickpea farmers.

Follow @liviobisterzo on Twitter.

The packaging, visual identity, tone of voice, and personality were created by Jkr, a food innovation company. Stephen McDavid, Jkr design director, said that the aim was to strike a balance between irreverent humor and being socially-conscious. The personality took inspiration from the smiling face of the original hippie era but is updated for today’s modern audience. The charismatic visual identity is a bold yellow face with a different colored tongue for each of the flavors in order to make the snacks stand out on the shelves, online and in the minds of consumers.

Livio Bisterzo, now 35, originated from Italy, attended the University of the Arts in London, and built businesses ranging from consumer goods to hospitality. In 2015, Livio Bisterzo combined years of experience with natural foods with a passion for living a healthy lifestyle. That led to creating Green Park Brands with a goal to manufacture healthy products and also create positive social impact.

With the game-changing Hippeas, chickpeas have been thrust into a spotlight and are on the way to becoming one of the United States’ fastest growing snack brands.

Former Hawks Owner Takes on Insurance Company

The New Hampshire Insurance Company is soon to be in some trouble if the Atlanta Hawks owners have their way.

The Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC, the group that once owned the NBA franchise, has decided to file a lawsuit against the New Hampshire Insurance Company over a breach of contract that involved a settlement of claims. This former group happens to include Bruce Levenson, a controlling partner although the lawsuit itself doesn’t make any mention of Tony Ressler, the group’s current principal owner. Only in June of 2015 did former general manager Danny Ferry reach a buyout agreement with the Hawks ownership, which according to an EPSN report ended a relationship that was originally supposed to be for six years and worth $18 million. The lawsuit claims that AIG, who was named in it, failed and refused to pay for the covered losses made in employee terminations in bad faith. All despite the fact that AIG was obligated to pay for them all.

A major figure involved with the Atlanta Hawks LLC franchise is former owner Bruce Levenson. Levenson is a native of Chevy Chase, Maryland but was born in Washington, D.C. He attended Washington University in St. Louis and then got a law degree from American University, using that to increase his overall business acumen. His first step was to found his own company called the United Communications Group (UCG) based out of Gaithersburg, and was mainly used for analyzing statistics involving oil prices, communication and technology. This came to a peak when he and his business partner Ed Peskowitz became majority owning partners of the Atlanta Hawks LLC in 2004, which is a group of businessmen who own the basketball team and Phillips Arena.

A Brief Overview of Fabletics and How It’s Taking on Amazon

Fabletics is a company that has dedicated itself to offering a high-quality gym, athletics and yoga wears for women. The company, which was co-founded Kate Hudson, has a goal of making women sexy. When it comes to high quality, most of the athletic wears are pricey, and many people cannot afford them. Fabletics products are of quality, but they have strived to offer them at affordable rates and in a convenient online shop. They offer a broad range of goods such as hoodies, tees, tops, sports bras and many others. The company has achieved a competitive advantage over competitors because of their twenty-four-hour customer service through an online shopping platform which is secure and friendly.

 

Getting Started With Fabletics

 

There is a short quiz that is offered at their platform to new users on lifestyles, and it just takes a few minutes. The aim of the question is to help the company’s stylists who are dedicated to knowing your taste on various items so that they can choose items for you based on how you answered the questions. Once you create an account, you can pick the items of your interest every month and complete the purchase effortlessly. However, you can also skip this when you do not feel like buying anything that month. Another option of becoming a VIP member is whereby you will be receiving the items on a monthly basis, but you will be offered a discount. Signing up on their website is free, and so it is easy to get started.

 

Fabletics Taking on Amazon

 

Amazon controls 20% of the online market in the fashion niche making it difficult for new entrants to penetrate. However, Kate Hudson has gone against the odds achieving a business growth of $250 million in just a period of three years. Fabletics has established a large online customer base within a short period using a subscription mechanism and selling their products directly to the customers. The trick perhaps is that Fabletics provides products that motivate their customers thus pushing them a little further than their limits. Another powerful tool is the convenience of online shopping coupled with a membership plan making them unique and reliable.

 

In the past, many brands which were of high quality were pricey. Today, for a new company to carve a niche in the competitive market and hard economic times it has to come up with a different strategy so as to achieve success. Some of the factors that a brand should look into are customer experience, fashionable design, and brand recognition among others so that they can cater for the current clients.

 

The company is expanding rapidly and has plans of establishing itself in various locations and opening more stores apart from the ones in California, Florida, Illinois and Hawaii. This shows that their strategy is working and paying as well. Fabletics believes their dedication towards making their customers happy and getting what they what is what has made them successful in a business that is highly competitive.
