Jeff Aronin leads on bringing new pharmaceuticals to market

Innovation is the key to the future. This is true for many industries including the healthcare industry. New medicines and treatments that have yet to be invented or discovered will be needed to continue improving the quality of life for those inflicted by medical issues. Jeff Aronin, a major pharmaceutical CEO, has been on the forefront of this effort to create new medications for ailments plaguing people all over the world.

 

Jeff Aronin recognized by medical industry magazine

 

Aronin is CEO of Paragon Biosciences and was recently named one of the 20 most influential leaders in the healthcare industry for 2018 by Insights Care magazine. Paragon is a bioscience venture incubator which invests in and helps new venture biotechnology companies. The company currently leads the industry with more than 32 New and Novel Drug Approvals that have been earned by Paragon’s portfolio companies and the talented staff on Paragon’s research and development teams.

Paragon to invest $445 million in capital

 

Paragon, under the leadership of Jeff Aronin, focuses on developing pharmaceutical compounds used to treat a variety of ailments. Since October 2017, the pharmaceutical venture company has invested more than $450 million into biopharmaceutical companies that have experienced high rates of growth. Some of the companies in Paragon’s portfolio includes Emalex Biosciences, Castle Creek Pharma and Harmony Biosciences. Within the next year Paragon is planning on investing at least another $445 million into various aspects of its business model.

 

Leadership and making a difference

 

Aronin believes much of his success in business stems from essential leadership principles. This includes a knack for recruiting and retaining the best talent to create a team that shares the same vision as Paragon’s CEO. Many of Paragon’s staff have stayed with Aronin for more than 15 years. However, according to Aronin, what keeps him most motivated is knowing that he is helping to eliminate human suffering by making a difference in the lives of patients in need.

 

Ryan Seacrest Talks Busy Life In The Upper East Side

Forty-three year old Ryan Seacrest is still trying to get used to his new life in New York. He moved out of Los Angeles about a year ago to start hosting “Live” with Kelly Ripa. In addition to his new cohosting job he has his own radio show, produces “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” as well as American Idol. His todo list doesn’t stop there. Mr. Seacrest also manages his own fashion line and skin care. Let’s take a closer look at his day.

Early Start

In the mornings Ryan Seacrest gets up at 6 o’clock. He rushes to shower, shave, and moisture his face. Since he’s not from New York he has to check the daily forecast. His outfit typically is sweat pants, T-shirt and a zip-up hoodie. His shoes of choice is his pair of Uggs. He says last year he broke his Uggs out in May and was informed it was too soon. After getting dressed Ryan Seacrest heads downstairs for his matcha tea and coffee. The tea is mainly for his body because it’s a healthy tea.

About His Workout

Producer Ryan Seacrest says he would workout at noon in his 20s and 30s but he kept it a secret because he felt guilty working out during business hours. As he got older the physical component has been more of a good way to balance the intensity of his schedule and work. He says when he went to the Bahamas to shoot “Live” with Kelly Ripa he wound up bringing his trainer along to keep his routine on point. Lately Ryan Seacrest has been doing a bit of boxing with a coach. He says he’s ready if the time comes to defend himself. He uses the peloton bikes before work and he loves organic running in the park.

Catching Up And Prioritizing

Ryan Seacrest (@ryanseacrest) catches up with news in the morning and then he has seven minutes to get to work. He lives on the Upper East Side so he has time to read in the car on the way. He says one thing he has learned to do is prioritize requests. He only takes call interviews or other requests after the first half of his day is done. He can think more about long term issues in the afternoon.

Felipe Montoro Jens Recaps the Special Meeting of the Governors of IDB

The special meeting of the Governors of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) met on March 24th in Mendoza, Argentina. Dyogo Oliveira, the Minister of Planning, Development and Management, made a defense for the increase of private investments made in infrastructure projects in Brazil. According to Infrastructure Projects expert Felipe Montoro Jens, Oliveira said that it is important to create financial guarantee mechanisms that can leverage private investments in Latin America’s infrastructure projects.

Luis Caputo, the Bank Boards of Governors chairman and Argentina’s finance minister, agreed with Oliveira, and Garrido, the Secretary of State for Spain’s Economy and Business Support, said that Brazil is the primary country for Spanish investment. Oliveira also believes that investment in more modern infrastructure is necessary to promote the Industry 4.0 revolution. Find out more at consultasocio.com to learn more.

Felipe Montoro Jens also reported that Luis Alberto Moreno, the president of the Inter-American Development Bank, the IDB has been able to adapt to the new social demands, which has resulted in the reinforcement of policies of gender equality and the sustainability of the environment in the implementation of the projects. Oliveira also stated that Brazil made numerous Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs), which he believes in in alignment with the greatest practices of the region’s countries as well as with the IDB’s guidelines and actions.

The Ministry of Planning, Development and Management stated that PPPs have increased in the Caribbean and Latin America. The value of the nearly 1,000 infrastructure PPP projects was valued at $360 billion over the course of the past 10 years. However, they also state that there are several projects that have been unsuccessful in mobilizing private capital. Last year, IDB loans to Brazil came to a total of about $12.9 billion, which is 20 percent more than it was in 2016, according to Felipe Montoro Jens.

Financial Freedom Outback Edition

When a company, or business entity, begins it’s operations there is a ease of language designed to elicit a positive reaction. Few actually live up to their own rhetoric, though Infinity Group Australia seems to be the exception. Their purpose is to help Australians to get out of debt and allow their clients to live their lives. According to founder Graeme Holm Infinity Group Australia reviews their clients financial situation, pairs them with a personal banker, and guides them along the way. Holm says he saw little to no support from the Australian commercial banking system and is filling that void.

 

Of course Infinity Group Australia reviews all their clients’ financial needs to aid in financial planning. Everyone works and has an income, big or small, wealth creation through investment will always help the everyday Australian. Infinity Group Australia will give their clients’ monthly progress reports, and even help on monthly budgets. All of this is designed to ensure personal financial knowledge, and freedom from debt.

 

Graeme Holm recently said in an interview that there is no citizen his firm cannot help. Holm really reinforces the weekly budget because controlling your cash flow will always be the starting point of financial freedom for any citizen of Australia. He also speaks of there being a purpose behind every dollar and how the everyday citizen should always focus on their needs rather than wants.

 

Holm started Infinity after several banks would pull him and his team’s commission when customers would pay off their mortgage early. So now he charges his clients a fee up front and takes 10% of their savings benefit. This benefit seems to be fairly significant as his clients pay off more debt in three months than the preceding twelve.

 

Infinity Group Australia is only five years old but already Graeme Holm has secured some big awards. The AFR (Australian Financial Review) listed his group as one of the Top 100 Most Innovative Companies for 2018. Additionally, MPA (Mortgage Professionals Australia) listed Graeme personally as a Top 100 Broker. Also nominated in 2017 by Optus Business Awards for outstanding customer service.

 

All in all it seems Holm has carved out a real frontier for Australians to wrangle. Controlling debt takes more than wishes and hard work, it requires diligence and discipline. Having a firm help you along the way may be the difference maker for you and your family. Learn more: https://infinitygroupaustralia.com.au/contact-us/

 

Fortress Investment Group Looks to the Future In Its Alternative Investments

Fortress Investment Group has entered into a deal with hot spot company iPass. iPass has taken a twenty million-dollar investment from Fortress to convert itself to a cloud business. The company owns the largest collection of Wi-Fi hot spots in the world. That number is set to triple this year. As connectivity becomes more important in a digital world, many forward-thinking companies have already invested in hot spots. Giving consumers access to free Wi-Fi anywhere. iPass is of the same ilk but the staggering number of hot spots it has means a greater saturation. Airports, hotels, train stations, restaurants, convention centers, and outdoor entertainment venues will all be included in the 340 million spots iPass will manage. The connectivity will be highly valuable to corporations and individuals alike. Fortress Investment Group has given iPass $10 million up front with the rest forthcoming. Their partnership allows them a piece of the hot spot market, and also provides another example of their investment genius.

Since its founding Fortress Investment Group has sought out of the box investments. The alternative asset firm puts money in many future prospects, prospects that do not just stop at an initial investment. Prospects that have the ability to forge forward and become future markets. Another example is the Brightline private-owned passenger rail in Florida. The rail, a project by Fortress Investment Group founder Wes Edens, creates a thirty-minute commute between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. It offers many luxuries in its travel. Comfortable seats, free Wi-fi, charge slots for portable devices, and even food service. It is designed for the regular commuters who have to make the thirty-minute trek daily. The line avoids traffic, saves on gas, and provides a less carbon-printed public travel system. Edens looks at Brightline to be the first of many, creating efficient and fast commutes between neighboring cities. The line is in tune with Fortress Investment’s groups strategy as it looks towards an expanding future. It is one more reason why the firm is a successful player and brings investors large percentages in returns.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, the former heads of the Phoenix New Times, recently spoke against President Donald Trump’s recent pardoning of ex-Sheriff of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio – a move that became official with the approval of U.S. District Court Judge, Sharon R. Bolton. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey echoed the sentiments felt by many of the citizens of Maricopa County when he referred to President Trump’s and Joe Arpaio’s collusion as “the perfect marriage of two corrupt individuals.”

Throughout his six-term reign, Joe Arpaio was directly responsible for the harassment of Latinos in the area and sub-par or nonexistent criminal investigations, as well as a number of deplorable conditions that were rampant throughout his jail, which was often referred to as “tent city,” or in his own words, “ my concentration camp.”

As the Vietnam War continued to claim the lives of U.S. soldiers, protests calling for its end continued to mount throughout the country, making the need for alternative news a growing priority amongst many of its citizens, particularly college students.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, who had already dropped out of Arizona State University, decided to join the protest in the wake of the Kent State Killings, in order to consolidate the voices of the population who had not taken to the conservative nature of traditional news media outlets.

In the fall of 1970, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, joined by a few like-minded individuals who wanted to be a part of the movement, distributed the inaugural issue of the Phoenix New Times.

After a short period, the free weekly newspaper proved to be a resounding success, gaining the support of the anti-war population in the area. As the Phoenix New Times began to grow, with Michael Lacey acting as the Executive Editor, and Jim Larkin garnering support through his staunch marketing techniques, so did the coverage. The implementation of satirical cartoons, as well as the coverage of social nuances and culture, proved to be a major addition to Phoenix New Times.

In the early 1980’s, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey executed the acquisition of Westword – a new-and-arts weekly that catered to the alternative audience that the duo had so successfully cultivated in the Phoenix area.

Rapid expansion followed this acquisition, and eventually, the New Times became home to 17 separate but like-minded publications, stretching their reach from coast to coast in the United States.

The acquisition of the Village Voice proved to be their most successful and fruitful venture, and it eventually became the powerhouse of the alternative news community.

After four decades of running New Times, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey sold the company to several executives that had been with the company for a number of years.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey currently focus most of their energy on protecting the constitutional rights of minorities, particularly Latinos in the Phoenix area through their Frontera Fund, which was created after their court victory against Joe Arpaio and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

James Larkin the Workers’ Union Champion

James Larkin contribution etched in many workers mind due to the role he played in trade unions. James hailing from an Irish origin was born on January 21, 1876, Liverpool, England. He received little education due to his family financial status, after working at his father’s previous firm he worked as a sailor and finally as a foreman in the docks. In 1893 he became a member of the Independent Labor Party where he developed his interest in socialism.

After various ups and downs in NUDL, he formed his union, Irish Transport General Workers Union (ITGWU) which is currently known as Service Industrial Professional and Technical Union (SIPTU).

The union gained popularity in Dublin, Cork, Waterford, and Sligo. He later moved to Dublin which was the headquarters of the union.

He established a newspaper, The Irish Worker, and Peoples Advocate. The press covered on denouncing low pay by employers. Unfortunately, the paper was suppressed in 1915 but later rebranded to the New Ireland Echo.

In 1913 James was involved in the most extended workers strike known as the Dublin Lockout. Dublin employers had resulted in the lockout of its workers due to its non-agreement to the pledge.

It resulted in outsourcing of workers from everywhere aside from Dublin. The strike eventually ended in 1914, despite not achieving its objective for better remuneration, they made history with the worker’s solidarity.

Larkin is mostly remembered for his calls against poverty and injustice and making the oppressed stand up for their rights. After a short stay in the US, he left his footprints in the Industrial Workers of The World. He returned to Ireland where he led to an end of the country’s civil war through his tours across the country.

James Larkin lived his life advocating fair pay for workers. His work is commemorated with songs, literature, and monuments.
