Malini Saba Shares Secrets to Success

In a recent interview, Malini Saba shared some insight into what has helped her become such a successful philanthropist and business leader. Saba is likely best known for her prominent position as Chairman of Saban, a leading international investment company. She is also the founder of the company, which she originally launched because she wanted to help companies that do not qualify for more traditional venture capitalist funding to get off the ground. Now, Saban holds investment interests all across the globe in U.S. tech companies, oil and gas in China and real estate in India and Australia.

When asked about where she sees her future in business headed, Saba says that commodity markets are particularly exciting for her because they present plenty of opportunities for investment. Even though Saba acknowledges that the commodity market can be very volatile at times, she says it has the potential for great returns. With almost three years under her belt as a dynamic entrepreneur, Saba knows exactly what it takes to ride out the wave in the startup phase of a company. She is always undeterred by challenges and rises to the occasion to accomplish her goals. In running a successful company, she says she tries to surround herself with people who have a similar passion for hard work and a willingness to do whatever it takes to succeed.

One of the major things that sets Saba apart from other business leaders is that she is not afraid to take risks. Saba says that she prides herself in being able to seek out situations that may be overlooked by other investors and is able to quickly calculate risk in taking the path less traveled. This approach has certainly been profitable for Saba and her company. She has been able to find opportunity in unlikely scenarios and use her strong will to succeed to keep going when others may have run in the opposite directions. As a word of wisdom, Saba encourages future business leaders to try to adopt this approach early on in their careers so that they can begin to distinguish themselves from others. A proactive approach to all aspects of business can take you well ahead of the crowd, according to Saba.

As a parting piece of advice, Malini Saba says that regrets in business are pointless. Every decision has the potential to teach you something you would not otherwise have learned.

ClassDojo Creates Student Sharing

Many projects that students work on at school never leaves the classroom. It can be a science experiment, history project, short story, or poem. Parents don’t get to see some of the creative work their children have accomplished. ClassDojo want to change this by adding a new feature to its application.

The new feature is Student Stories a way for student to upload photos, and videos of their work so that parents can see what they do in school. Parents will get to see some of the more exciting project said Liam Don co-founder and chief product officer at ClassDojo. He hopes that this will increase conversation between parents and kids about learning in school.

Student Stories will allows children to catalog their work and take pride in it throughout the year. Many parents work more than one job and cannot always attend parents night or conferences. This app can build a better sense of community between schools, teachers, and families. The ClassDojo application launched in 2011 is in two thirds of US schools.They focus primarily on K-8 classrooms.

This new application will let students communicate with parents about school.Some teachers use Student Stories to communicate with parents and teach social skills. Teachers can use class wide or individual devices when teaching like an IPad. Using a QR code can access ClassDojo to post. At end of day teacher can read the post to approve them to send to parents.

In classrooms that Student Stories was tesed the kids became very excited about showing and sharing their work. Teachers too were supportive of an app that focused on all the students and their work. It provides quick communication between parent, teachers, and students.

ClassDojo is an application that help teachers, students and parents share the wonder of learning. It builds classroom skills like teamwork and persistence by sharing videos and photos of class project in science, history, and other subjects. It has instant messages, photos, videos, and announcements. It works on IOS, Kindle Fire, and any computer. It is free to teachers.

The ClassDojo staff listens to teachers to design applications that make classrooms exciting. Its staff are teachers that know how the classroom works and this gives them a cutting edge on success.

NutriMost Presents a Diet Plan that Actually Works for Individual Weight Loss

 

Groups of girlfriends may get together and consider the benefits of a weight loss program. This is not uncommon since groups of friends tend to work out with one another. I have found in all of my experiences that it is just better to have an individualized program like NutriMost when it comes to weight loss. I have been able to see the differences when it comes to finding a weight loss program that will work based on my own needs.

Some people have a higher metabolism than others. There may also be people that may have to consume more or fewer calories based on how tall they are. This is something that many people may not consider, but the NutriMost plan brings all of this into play. There is also technology involved in the use of the NutriMost plan that helps people like myself that are serious about losing weight. I have seen videos where other doctors have even talked about using the program to slim down, and that has inspired me.

Weight loss company Nutrimost files lawsuit against rival Healthy Living for allegedly stealing promotional video

I know that there have been other companies that have tried to duplicate the success of NutriMost, but many of these companies are purely wasting time. There are a lot of limitations for companies like Healthy Living. These companies may have stolen the promotional videos that are used by NutriMost for advertising the weight loss plan, but Healthy Living clearly doesn’t have the NuriMost technology like the NutriMost Resonant Frequency Technology. This is the technology that takes a look at a person’s individual DNA and determines the weight loss needs from this perspective. That is one of thing that sets the program apart.

Another thing that sets NutriMost apart is the weight loss guarantee. I have tried other plans in books, but none have provided any guarantees.

Soros Goes Bearish, Picks Up Gold and Miner Shares

It seems that the hedge fund founder, investor, philanthropist, and economic genius George Soros is changing his tune as of late. And people are paying attention. After a hiatus of sorts, Soros has made a series of bearish moves lately. His company picked up shares in gold and miner companies while selling off shares of Soros Fund Management LLC.


Those close to George Soros believe this move is due to him seeing that different economic markets are weakening, which makes it historically a good time to buy gold. It is out of the blue too, because he seems to have been focused more on philanthropy and political action (such as reportedly donating to Hillary Clinton’s super PAC) lately.

Soros recently had to say goodbye to a senior investor of his, which could be the reason he has been in the office a lot lately, according to many staff sources. He hasn’t been this active in his companies, according to sources who are close to the 85 year old billionaire. Perhaps he is adjusting for the shifts that are taking place with a number of global economic factors: China’s market is weakening (and uncertain due to Beijing’s cryptic actions), the EU is seemingly falling apart with Brexit and the refugee crisis, and all of this could mean that wages and prices will fall soon.

George Soros Trading Again

George Soros recently invested in gold and miner shares, which he is up in position on. Perhaps he is seeing something that ordinary investors aren’t right now. After all, the last time he was so bearish was back in 2007 before the housing and banking crisis. George Soros was concerned about housing and made a series of moves over a few years that earned him a $1 billion. Investors should pay attention to Soros and ask themselves why he is back in the driver’s seat.

Dr. Clay Siegel and Seattle Genetics Search for the Cure

No other word in the English vocabulary has the menace or impact of the single word, cancer. We all know of someone who appeared healthy, strong, confident but was taken by this dreaded disease all too early. While most people are offended by large drug manufacturers making millions from selling overpriced medications, we still cheer on the efforts of these same manufacturers to find a cure for cancer. One such company seeking a cure is Seattle Genetics, which is concentrating their efforts for an effective cure by the use of a special procedure whereby the agents do not attack randomly as in the devastating effects of chemotherapy but make a sophisticated assault on the cancer cells without damaging other necessary cells in the blood stream.

Seattle Genetics was co-founded by Clay Sigel in 1988 and continues to seek a cure for this devastating disease. Siegel has a B.S. in Zoology from The University of Maryland and obtained a Ph. D. from George Washington University in Genetics. Dr. Sigel has a long history of excellent work in the field of cancer research.

Cancer has been a disease plaguing men and women and doing irreparable harm to countless families. It even affects those searching for the cure. One renowned researcher in the field was diagnosed with cancer and openly refused one of the more damaging forms of treatment for his cancer. Breast Cancer awareness has a symbol and receives generous donations by all concerned about the devastating effects of a disease that does not discriminate between the sexes. There have been promising discoveries of drugs and procedures used, but the disease remains feared by everyone and without a great hope for an immediate cure. Research in genetics by Siegel and his company look promising, and all people hope he and Seattle Genetics can find relief for those suffering and for the millions who many contract the disease in the near future.
