Enhanced Athlete’s victory in court

Enhanced athlete won the case raised against them by Nutrition Distribution. The case filed in court accused them of false advertising and requested for an injunction. The plaintiff accused Enhanced athlete of affecting their performance and distribution system by posting false adverts yet they are a world leader in the distribution of nutritional supplements.

Enhanced athlete convinced the presiding judge that their practices are lawful and honest. They countered Nutrition Distributions’ accusation by pointing out that they were engaging in ‘shakedows’ to bully their competitors and extort settlement money from them. They also pointed out that there was no proof of damage directly linked to the claims the plaintiff was making. They argued that the decline in their distributions could be a result of their poor marketing strategies. In light of the arguments presented, the judge rules in favour of Enhanced Athletes.

The case Nutrition Distributions filed against enhanced athletes was only one of the seventy case files. Nutrition Distributions filed law suits against their competition accusing them of posting false adverts. According to Enhanced Athlete’s CEO, Scott Cavell, Nutrition Distributions has been asking the accused to pay a relatively small amount to settle the matter out of court. Since some companies don’t want to battle it out in court, they pay the amount asked for by Nutrition Distributions and the case is settled out of court. Scott Cavell says that as long as companies keep paying the amount asked for by Nutrition Distributions, many more companies will be victimized by their ‘shakedown’ scheme.

Enhanced athlete is a company that distributes nutritional supplements that benefit body builders and others interested in keeping fit. It is the only company that is non-profit in nature. All the proceeds that come from the sales of the nutrition supplements are reinvested in conducting research and developing products sold by the company.

Enhanced Athlete has two sister companies, Enhanced Gear and Enhanced coaching. Enhanced gear is a company that is dedicated to supplying to its clients trendy sportswear. Other than being keen to cater to their clientele’s fashion needs, their goal is to sell its clients comfortable and efficient gear. Enhanced Coaching provides their clientele with the information on how to exercise and eat healthy. They even help their clients set targets and develop a routine that will see the client achieve the set goal. Together, these three companies aim at giving their clients wholesome health solutions.


Succeeding in Career: Susan McGalla’s way

From a marketer at Joseph Horne Company to the Vice President of Business Strategy and Creative Development at Pittsburgh Steelers, Susan McGalla’s life story is as inspiring as it is intriguing. An only daughter in a family of three children, she learned to compete hard at a tender age. This lesson, coupled with confidence and exceptional innovativeness propelled her to where she is today.

But Susan McGalla’s success was possible because there were opportunities for her to pursue. Many women aspire to be in her position, but opportunities are just out of their reach. For a long time, Women Leadership Initiatives have been thought to be the ultimate solution to gender inequality issues in business management. This idea, although exceedingly advantageous, has been proven ineffective by time – given that it has existed for ages and gender discrimination in executive management still lives with us.

Looking forward, a suitable and practical solution would be Executive Sponsorship. This is an inclusive program, where women find a sponsor that they can work with to create and pursue opportunities. The sponsor should be an executive person. The chief worth of an Executive Sponsorship program accrue to the women, in that sponsors can vouch for the women to take project manager positions when an opportunity is being pursued. When in such places, it is possible for women to rise to the ranks Susan McGalla has risen to.

On her career journey, Susan McGalla has been the President and Chief Merchandising Officer of American Eagle Outfitters, CEO of West Seal Inc. and a founder of P3 Executive Consulting where she offers expert advice to clients seeking insight in branding and talent management.

According to her, many women lack practical solutions that can be used to advance career-wise. However, career success is determined merely by hard work, confidence, and a feeling that you are not entitled to something based on your gender.


Eric Lefkofsky and Tempus Labs – Leading the Way in the Democratization of Information Access

Eric Lefkofsky believes in the power of collaboration and his belief in collaboration guides the success of Tempus Lab. Founded in 2015, Tempus Labs is a business startup that developed an operating system with the end goal of battling cancer. Tempus Labs is a collaborative venture involving healthcare professionals, scientists, technologists, etc. to affect positively the lives of patients living with cancer.

Tempus Labs is leading the way in democratizing information and the access to information.

The collaboration between scientists, researchers, and physicians at Tempus Labs has led to its success. As a team effort, Tempus Labs developed an operating system that personalizes patient care through an “interactive analytical and machine learning platform.” Through genomic sequencing, Tempus Labs is revolutionizing cancer care. In a published article, Lefkofsky stated a true revolution in medicine is possible through the integration of millions of molecular profiles and clinical data.

The cutting-edge work of Tempus Labs has not gone unnoticed. In a recent Chicago Tribune article, it was reported that Eric Lefkofsky and Tempus Labs recently received an $80 million investment. Since 2015, Tempus Labs has received more than $210 million in investment dollars, increasing its valuation to $1.1 billion. Crossing that $1 billion threshold earned Tempus Labs the enviable title of “unicorn,” a term reserved for startups that pass the $1 billion mark in total valuation.

In addition to Tempus Labs, Eric is the founder and partner of Lightbank, “a venture fund investing in disruptive technologies.” He is also co-founder and chair of Groupon and co-founder of Uptake Technologies, “a leading predictive analytics platform for the world’s largest industries.”

Jason hopes that people will not only lead longer lives, but they will have better quality lives at that.

Daniel Taub’s Background Has Helped Bridge Barriers

The role of an ambassador requires the use of many skills and the demonstration of varied abilities. An ambassador needs to be capable of communication with many parties from highly diverse backgrounds. An ambassador also needs to be able to represent many competing interests. This is something that former ambassador to the United Kingdom Daniel Taub has demonstrated many times.

Over the course of his long career in Israel, he repeatedly showed that he was capable of filling many kinds of roles. Daniel Taub spent his formative years in the United Kingdom. He chose to move to Israel over several decades ago in order to fulfill his sense of being religiously Jewish.

Class Dojo Is Building Communication Skills Across Nations For Young Students

Communication is often a critical point in every student’s learning as there will always be times when a student needs a little motivation or direction to move forward. Class Dojo is making this easier than ever with their platform that is solely based on improving the level of communication that is present in the educational industry. Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don did a study by traveling around the country and talking to various teachers and institutions on the current issues that were facing the education department. The majority of answers all boiled down to a similar problem, communication. Without adequate communication, teachers have a difficult time getting all of their students involved in the classroom and working towards improving their learning.

When it comes to the parents, things are even worse for students. When parents are not investing time in their child’s learning, it does not hurt them but their child. Often times parents are unable to participate and help their child because of their own schedules. However, Class Dojo is changing this through their app that is available on nearly all smart devices on the market today, allowing practically all parents to participate. Parent-teacher conferences are a thing of the past and it is most definitely for the best since they didn’t work for the majority of parents and just made things even more difficult for teachers. Class Dojo allows teachers to communicate with parents on a daily basis regardless of either party being busy.

As of late, Class Dojo has been growing even faster, spreading to more classrooms throughout the world, not just the United States. Through Class Dojo’s Story Board, students in classrooms thousands of miles apart are able to share their experiences and their way of learning with each other. This helps students experience different cultures right in their own classrooms and understand the many similarities between themselves and other people in different countries. This works like a safe and fun form of social media for students in grades K-8 for improving communication skills. It has been less than 10 years since Class Dojo first launched and they are hoping to spread to all countries around the globe in the next 10 years.


OSI Group Food Company, An American Industry Phenomenon

OSI Group was founded in 1909. It started as a meat market and butcher shop in Chicago, Illinois, owned by Otto Kolschowsky and was called Otto And Sons. Today, OSI Group is the leader and phenomenal force in the Food Industry.

The groundbreaking steps that have led up to the pivotal position the company has attained have been the acquisition of the contract as the first meat supplier of fresh ground beef for McDonald’s in 1955. With the boom in the fast food industry advancing rapidly, the company opened it’s Chicago based plant in 1973 in West Chicago which was OSI Group’s first dedicated facility to McDonald’s. In 1975 Otto and Sons transitions to OSI Industries.

Today the company has plants and facilities all across the country and all over the world.
The Company offers and provides innovation in food development and processing through an auspicious selection of chefs and engineers who have an aptitude for the processes required to meet the standards of quality and safety in the food industry.

The ever-increasing demands in the supply chain require persistent and consistent logistic planning to be cost efficient and a renowned leader in bringing about new ideas for consumers for food products.

OSI Group is a privately held corporation and has continually been an investor to create partnerships for new ideas within the food market industry.

The greater value OSI Industries produces in its ideology in food safety and innovating ideas out measures a lot of the watered down second-hand processes that were practiced prior to the emasculation of the progress we see today in the food industry.

The company is always open to a meeting of the minds and working together with others and extends the invitation of working together with others.

The importance of each customer’s brand is also important to OSI. So measures are taken to go to great lengths to ensure the satisfaction and complete complacency each and every customer would expect and require.

With over a hundred years under their belt, it would be very hard to go wrong when choosing OSI to partner with.
