OSI Group is Making International Expansions

The OSI Group is among the few internationally recognized food processing companies in the world. The institution is not new in the market. According to the company website, the organization was brought into the market several decades ago, and its greatest mission is to offer consumers high-quality meat products. When OSI Group was starting, its founder was interested in a meat store that would serve the residents. His hard work, however, paid well after he grew the company to a national level. As the company grew, it brought in different financial experts who have made it expand and make a name in the international market.Food companies face many challenges when they are new in the market. Things get even worse if the company in question ventures into the international platform. OSI Group has not had a smooth ride since it was founded.

Fortunately, the food company has been working under the management of reliable professionals who are passionate about satisfying the needs of the customers. Sheldon Lavin, the current chief executive officer of the institution knows how to operate an international company, and he has been instrumental in ensuring high quality services to the people coming into the organization.When the OSI Group was venturing into the market, it was only interested in processing meat products that met the different tastes of its customers. Years later, the company has increased its services to the customers, and it has managed to keep its operations local so that it does not disappoint its customers.

The international institution has managed to open offices in more than seventeen countries, proving that it has great leadership. Despite the hardships faced by companies in the market in the modern time, OSI Group has maintained its position in the international platform. Not long ago, the company CEO announced that his firm had acquired one of its competitors in the American market, known as Baho Foods. While working under the same management, the two companies will focus on offering consumers high-quality products. Lavin said that his company was very excited about the new move. According to him, this is the perfect way for the company to expand in the United States and at the same time increase its storage facilities. Baho Foods has not announced the financial details of the completed transactions, but the company says that its employees will retain their work positions under the new management.

Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Sameer Jejurikar Patients Honor Him With “Compassionate Doctor Certification”

Compassionate Doctor Certification might be described as the Peoples’ Choice Awards of the medical world. Reviews of doctors collected from Vitals.com, UCompareHealthCare.com, and similar sites determine what physicians are considered for the honor.

 

There are 870,000 doctors practicing in the US. Yearly, only 26,100 of those practitioners receive Compassionate Doctor Certification. It is the patients who ultimately determine the recipients of the certification. In 2012 Dallas Texas based Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Sameer Jejurikar received the honor. Dr. Jejurikar’s patients gave him a 4.6 out of a possible five-star rating.

 

In practice, for over two decades the bulk of Dr. Jejurikar’s training comes from the University of Michigan. Both his undergraduate and Medical Degree are from that School. His residency in Plastic Surgery was completed at the University of Michigan Medical Center. Dr. Jejurikar also studied at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital.

 

The cosmetic and reconstructive surgery practice that Dr. Sameer Jejurikar is affiliated with is the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute. The institute offers more than 40 cosmetic procedures for the skin, face, body, and breasts. Dr. Jejurikar is affiliated with three hospitals in the Dallas area. These facilities are Dallas Medical Center, Pine Creek Medical Center, and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.

 

Estimates place the number of people in Bangladesh with cleft deformities at 300,000. In the entire country, there are only 30 surgeons qualified to correct those deformities. Every year Dr. Sameer Jejurikar sets time aside to augment that number by volunteering to perform surgeries with the charity Smile Bangladesh.

Mike Baur Discusses Three Elements To A Successful Startup Plan

Mike Baur at one time was being coached and trained to become a successful bank account advisor, but now he’s coaching and training people on what should be done to build a business from scratch. He founded the Swiss Startup Factory as a hub for combining entrepreneurs’ ideas with business investor goals, and it’s become one of the hottest companies in Switzerland for generating new jobs. But Baur wants to go beyond just putting startups in the market to building sustainable companies that will last for years. He believes to build a sustainable business, you have to follow three philosophies.

 

First and foremost, forming and growing a startup never comes through chance opportunities. The entrepreneur has to do the work to lay the foundation for the company and be a part of a network to get the funding and get the technical support to make it happen. Second, Mike Baus talks about the need to take risks and just what those risks are. The risk isn’t necessarily starting the company in hopes it succeeds, but rather it’s what you do once it’s running such as what you prioritize your company spending on, or new products you decide to put into circulation. And finally, Baur says adaptability is key because at some point the industry your business serves is going to change, and whether you’ll survive that change depends on your ability to adapt.

 

Mike Baur loves his job as Chairman of the SSUF because things are always changing and he meets others who share his enthusiasm for startups. Prior to that he worked in banking and though he was happy with that career at first, it later became a maze of red tape that he grew tired of working around. He had been told as a young apprentice in commercial banking at UBS Bank that he could follow a chart mapping out his career and he would reach a wealthy retirement at the end of it. Instead, after seeing the problems come out of the 2008 crisis, Baur decided it was time to go elsewhere with his work. Baur ignored the words of individuals who told him the government was already supplying business grants to startups saying his plans for a privately-owned accelerator were not needed. Upon the SSUF’s launch, the interest in its program by startup owners was overwhelming. To this day, hundreds of startups have gone from early stage to fully running.

Contour Design NewsWatch TV Review

Contour Designs is a company that researches and designs computer input devices. NewsWatch TV supplied a video showing a review on one of Contour Design’s many computer products: The Ultimate Workstation RollerMouse Red. This ultimate workstation was designed with computer users in mind by completely eliminating the need for the traditional keyboard and mouse setup. The ultimate workstation has many unique and helpful features that will create a more efficient experience for any computer user. Some of these great features include its effortless control. The RollerMouse Red has a roller-bar that is considerably larger than any of its predecessors as well as a digital left click which Contour claims will minimize any strain on the finger. With this set up, the user is also able to choose their level of support by determining the keyboard’s pitch of balance since RollerMouse Red has three different tilts to choose from: negative, flat, and positive. Having these different options ensures the maximum level of comfort while working with this product. The biggest perk about the RollerMouse Red is the fact that it is completely wireless with no need for an on/off switch due to its power saving feature. This eliminates wire clutter on one’s desk creating a more organized and useful workspace.

Eric Lefkofsky – Changing The Way We Treat Cancer

Statistics show that forty percent of adults in the United States will face cancer at some point in their adult life. These statistics show that cancer touches everyone personally or through someone they know at some point. The National Cancer Institute, estimated that in 2014 nearly 14.5 million people in the U.S. were living with cancer. It is projected that this number will jump to over 19 million by the year 2024.

People like Eric Lefkofsky and his company Tempus are looking to change these projections. Tempus is taking the lead in the innovative field of data-enabled precision medicine. Technology is advancing all around us and one would assume it is advancing in the medical field as well. But when it comes to data collection and digital technology, there was something missing. Eric Lefkofsky learned this first hand when his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and he set out to do something about it.

As a firm Tempus, had a goal of changing the way cancer care was being delivered. Their platform has been created to analyze a patients clinical and molecular data. There were several hurdles Tempus had to overcome in developing this technology. One being the expense of information. Since the future of fighting cancer seems to be directed at treating it on the molecular level, Tempus has tried to combine information in order to provide the effective cancer treatments.

Eric Lefkofsky, currently resides in Chicago where Tempus is headquartered. He serves as a member of the board of directors for Lurie’s Children Memorial Hospital of Chicago and is on the board of trustees for The Steppenworth Theatre of Chicago. Eric still hasn’t reached the age of 50 and is very accomplished. He graduated from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. He earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School.

Lending a Hand with Dick DeVos

A plan was formed in 1991 in Grand Rapids to build something that both Dick and Betty DeVos didn’t quite approve of. Since the sports complex in the works didn’t fit with their ideas and their goals, they decided to fight the building commission and lobby against the idea completely.

 

 

The campaign against this new sports facility was the factor that led to a new group formation called the Grand Action. This group, full of business leaders, helped with the construction of the DeVos Place Convention Center and the DeVos Performance Hall, among other things.

 

 

Though the Grand Rapids skyline was changed after these buildings were completed, and the DeVos family have spent much of their lives as adults trying to change various policies and institutions. Since they are a wealthy and powerful family, the DeVos’ have major political influence, especially when it comes to changing state laws for both labor and education.

 

 

Betsy DeVos, who is the major influencer for these movements, has been pushing for charter school expansion, and at the same time, her husband, Dick, created a law that changed the birthplace of organized labor to a state where union membership is not an employment condition any longer.

 

 

However, their influence doesn’t just extend from Republican politics, but it also moves beyond that to other things. For several years, the DeVos family has donated at least $138.7 from their family foundation to various programs like culture, health, arts, churches, and more than all center on reform for education and scholarships for the private schools that Betsy pushes for so often.

 

 

The couple even donated up to $12 million toward the construction of a children’s hospital, naming it after Dick DeVos’ mother, Helen. She was the wife of the co-founder of Amway Corporation, Richard DeVos. The children’s hospital that they donated to has helped families seek treatment in their area instead of having to drive too far away places.

 

 

So far, education reform has been the biggest initiative of both Betsy and Dick DeVos. They are even beginning to push their advocacy toward other states in the country, providing them with more choices for private school education.

 

 

Even though Betsy DeVos is now the U.S. Secretary of Education, Dick DeVos is the CEO of a firm that he started himself. This firm is a holding company for many businesses in the Grand Rapids area. Since he flies quite a bit, Dick DeVos has even helped bring the Gerald R. Ford airport back into the public eye by leading several business leaders to help with the growth. Learn more:

 

 

Overall, Dick DeVos has been a tremendous asset to several groups and councils over the years. He has helped resurrect places like the airport and more by using his skills and expertise, and he has been a supporter of his wife since their marriage. Learn more: http://www.freep.com/story/opinion/contributors/2016/12/01/michigan-parole-reform/94075318/
