Squaw Valley Provides Positive Update on Water Contamination

 

Oftentimes, the weather is difficult to predict. In October 2016, Squaw Valley Ski lodge was hit with a storm that effected the facility’s water supply. A water system that was installed that summer became contaminated due to the storm. Storms typically cause structural damage, but very rarely do we hear anything about contamination of water supplies. Fortunately, the management at Squaw Valley took immediate action to contain the contamination and has done so with incredible success thus far.

As soon as the incident had taken place at the lodge, Squaw Valley management restricted access to water to its customers and began an ongoing investigation on how to handle the situation. Water safety experts were contacted and gave management insightful consultation on the matter. In combination, Squaw Valley Public Service District and Placer Country Environmental Health began working with management to ensure that the contamination was dealt with properly. Thus far, the ongoing treatment of the water has proven to be successful thanks to management’s professional approach to the issue by contacting appropriate outside sources.

In lieu of this, patrons will still have regular access to the facilities at the ski lodge. However, all individuals using the resort’s facilities are issued a warning about the water, and the health risks of consumption. As a kind gesture for all its’ customers, Squaw Valley will management will be providing free bottles of water for all until the issue can be resolved. Their safety is of the utmost priority, and management wants individuals to be able to stay hydrated during this time when remaining active on the slopes.

With various organizations and leading expert advice being received, it is only a short amount of time until the water contamination issue can be resolved. Squaw Valley believes firmly in patron safety, and will continue to resolve this ongoing issue until water consumption is safe for all at the facility.

Jeremy Goldstein Provides Companies with Stock Option Advice

Jeremy Goldstein is a business lawyer and currently works as a partner at his own firm, Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates. He is the chair of a subcommittee at the American Bar Association and has worked on some of the biggest mergers in recent years. Goldstein earned his degrees from the New York University School of Law, the University of Chicago and Cornell University.

 

With his expertise on the subject of mergers & acquisitions he has assisted in many large transactions. He was a part of the Dow Chemical Company and Rohm and Hass Company deal as well as the Verizon and ALLTEL deal.

 

He is also an author who shares his opinions on business law and finances. In one of his recent publications he shared his thoughts on stock options and knock-out plans.

 

Despite the recent trend for companies to end their offering of stock options, Goldstein argues that it is still beneficial to offer stock options to employees. That is, if a few criteria are first met.

 

Said company must be sure that their company will experience growth after initiating stock option plans. They must also be able to work with employees in managing their stocks and coming up with plans. If an employee purchases only a few stocks and requires someone else to handle his stock portfolio for him, he may find himself losing money due to service fees.

 

If a company that offers stock options is seeing stable, solid growth, it could benefit from offering stock options to employees. An employee that is optimistically involved in the company will work harder to see continued growth. An employee that doesn’t have this relationship with the company will not work as hard.

 

A solution for a company that is weary about stock options is knock-outs. Knock-outs are a type of stock option that tops off the employees gain from their stocks. These stocks have a maximum selling point that limits the potential profit for the employee, but it also provides the employee with a plan. They know when to get out.

Daniel Taub Bursts the Overblown Diplomatic Balloon

Since the UN allowed Iran to proceed with its nuclear enrichment program, Israel has never sat easy. It was a matter of time before the bubble burst. Now Mr. Daniel Taub, the former Israeli Ambassador to the UK has spoken out what Israeli’s think and plan to do about what it regards as a serious security blunder commissioned by the international community.

What Israel Plans To Do About Iran and Its Assertive Overtures

According to the diplomat and international law expert, the deal signed between Iran and the UN gave Iran sufficient cover manufacture a nuclear bomb. Israel recently sent a strong delegation of diplomats and other experts to make a case against Iran’s program.

Mr. Daniel Taub was among the delegation that visited the USA. Israel says it has prepared grounds to cooperate with other Middle-Eastern countries to counter what it calls the axis of evil. Mr. Taub says that Iran has sponsored a ring of criminals under the guise of Shia Muslims across the Middle East; from Tehran, all the way to the Gaza Strip.

Israel is prepared to work with countries that have been widely perceived to be sworn enemies with the Zionist state. Mr. Taub says that other countries in the Middle East feel equally threatened by the blank check of security that the recent deal has granted Iran.

Therefore, many of the states are willing to work with Israel to achieve their goals. Israel plans to join hands with countries that support the Sunni Muslim course to defeat the axis of evil that Iran is trying to establish in the region.

Why Dr. David Samadi Would have Treated Mitt Romney’s Prostate Cancer Surgically

Dr. David Samadi came to the US as a refugee from Iran. He fled Iran in 1979 after the revolution. Upon arriving in America in 1984 he decided to go into medicine.

In 1994 he graduated SUNY Stony Brook School of Medicine with an MD. He completed post-graduate work at Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. David Samadi studied urology at the former and proctology at the latter. He studied oncology at Memorial Sloane Kettering and robotic radical prostatectomy at France’s Henri Mondor Hospital Creteil.

Today, Dr. Samadi is a board-certified urologic oncologist heading the Urology and Robotic Surgery departments at Lennox Hill Hospital in New York. When Mitt Romney was diagnosed with prostate cancer he had to choose between a prostatectomy or radiation. Had Dr. David Samadi been treating Romney Dr. Samadi would have recommended the prostatectomy, assuming the cancer was limited to the prostate.

Romney received the cancer diagnosis when he was 70. That is about the average age for a prostate cancer diagnosis. Sixty-percent of prostate cancer patients are 65 or older.

This is Dr. Samadi’s rationale for choosing surgery over radiation treatments. The survival rate for the surgical patient is close to 100%. Patients who undergo radiation treatment are twice as likely to die from their prostate cancer. Radiation patients have a shorter life expectancy post-treatment than surgery patients. There is a 70% that a patient will die within five years of undergoing radiation treatment.

Radiation treatments can lead to cancer developing in other parts of the body like the rectum or bladder. Surgical intervention for prostate cancer that reoccurs after radiation treatments is much more difficult.

Last year there were 161,360 cases of prostate cancer. The American Cancer Society is projecting an increase in the number of cases of prostate cancer diagnosed this year. The ACS estimates 164,690 prostate cancer diagnosis this year.

Other political figures who have had prostate cancer are Former Secretary of State General Colin Powell and Former Presidential Candidate and Governor of Massachusettes John Kerry. Kerry was diagnosed while on the campaign trail in 2002. General Powell received his diagnosis a year later.

Powell and Kerry both chose prostatectomy. Fifteen and sixteen years later respectively both men remain prostate cancer free.

Dr. David Samadi’s accolades include being recognized by Castle Connoly as one of America’s Top Doctors. New York Magazine placed him on their Best Doctors List.

The Past, the Present, and the Future of Fashion Belongs to Academy of Art University.

The Academy of Art University is a privately owned art school based out of San Francisco, California and was founded in 1929 by Richard S. Stephens, it was originally purposed for training artist to work in advertising, which would be obvious to anyone who knew it had a previous name, The Academy of Advertising Art.

 

It wasn’t until Stephens’ grand-daughter, Elisa Stephens, took over in 1992 when the school really started to blossom. She not only expanded the school’s number of students by 9 fold, in 2005 she changed the direction of the school forever when she entered her students in the New York Fashion show. They were a huge success.

 

Fashion is far from being the only attraction of The Academy of Art University. Alumni of the school have went on to work for Hollywood blockbusters such as Boss Baby, Ferdinand, and the newest Star Wars films. The school also participates in the NCAA Division II in several sports and has an impressive car museum consisting of over 200 unique and custom vehicles.

 

As great as it sounds to have so many successful students working in Hollywood, it is definitely the fashion department that draws this college the most attention.

 

Hailun Zhou, a student at the college debuted a unique peace on stage, a futuristic silver and blank women’s outfit that looked like it belonged in a sci-fi movie rather than on the stage during New York Fashion Week.

 

Teaming together, Joanna Jadellah and Cana Klebanoff went the direct opposite way. Using a very loose stitching and rustic colors they created a man’s garment that appeared to be pulled from ages long passed. Cana, who was raised in New Jersey, explained that their inspiration was drawn from the ancient Japanese samurai and the architecture of medieval castles.

 

The Academy of Art University certainly showed why they are the past, present and the future of fashion design at last years New York Fashion Week.

Jake Gottlieb: The Passionate Investment Manager who Left his Medical Career

Jacob Gottlieb is a highly successful investment manager with almost two decades of expertise in the financial and investment sector. He is the CIO and Founder of Visium Asset Management, a prominent investment management company headquartered in New York. Gottlieb is someone who had a great passion for stock markets and investments from his childhood, and that made him leave the medical career and fully concentrate in the investment industry. However, he confirms that he is fascinated towards both the professions and stay updated of medical industry as a physician. Since his childhood, Gottlieb was a baseball card trader and had a great passion towards baseball game.

His analytical skills and capacity to pick right stocks were identified for the first time when he was attending an unusual contest in his 7th grade at his school. In the contest, he and other participants had to pick the right stocks, and Gottlieb won the contest by accurately picking the right stocks. After watching his achievement, his father decided to open a trading account for Gottlieb to help him advance his trading skills and knowledge through practical trading experience. In order to learn entrepreneurial skills, Gottlieb started selling beverages to golf players at a nearby course. For that purpose, he was availing the supplies from a grocery store and taking the drinks to the ground in a heavy shopping cart.

Though Gottlieb completed his MD from School of Medicine – New York University, his passion towards shares landed him finally in stock markets. He is highly analytical and has some great observations as well as insights about both medicine and fund management industry. According to him, both the industries and roles share some very common characteristics. Gottlieb thinks that both stockbrokers and physicians are risk managers as well as risk takers. Both professions require greater planning skills and should realistically approach various issues. However, Gottlieb adds that the physicians should work towards removing potential risks that can endanger their patients, like the stock traders.

Similarly, the stock traders have to manage finances and take risks before their portfolios getting out of control. Gottlieb accepts that the people from both the fields should know what action can produce results in any given situation. He confirms that his love towards stock markets is blended with his love for the medical profession. Before founding Visium in 2005, Gottlieb was part of Balyasny Asset Management as its founding member. He also collaborated with Merlin Financial as an investment portfolio manager. Gottlieb began his financial career by working at Sanford C. Bernstein as a buy-side analyst.

It created fellowship programs for early career teachers, master teachers, and master teachers emirates that are designed based on continued learning, collaboration, and genuine respect.
