The musician and writer Doug Levitt recently launched his own YouTube channel to broadcast his own work as a musician, writer, and photographer that has taken him across the country riding the bus with those we rarely see living among us. The center of the U.S. has often been the main area of interest for Levitt as he rides a seemingly never ending bus journey that has so fare reached over 120,000 miles, during which time he has been speaking with those who have little option but to ride the bus to record their stories in his “The Greyhound Diaries” project.
Doug Levitt has made it clear he has been heavily influenced by the WPA recordings that were created in the 1930s by artists who brought their skills to the problems facing the people of the U.S. during “The Great Depression”. Doug Levitt understands that riding the bus is something that is only done by those who have little economic option or live in an economically disadvantaged area without access to air travel. “The Greyhound Diaries” has seen Levitt take on the role of musician, photographer, and writer as he has released music, written a book, and developed a stage show that takes him to some of the most iconic arenas in the country.
Doug Levitt does not believe his only role is that of entertainer, but also feels his work should have an impact on the lives of those in economically disadvantaged areas of the U.S.; among the shows Doug Levitt has completed in his long bus ride across the U.S. are those he regularly performs for homeless shelters in the cities he travels to; in his work as a philanthropist, Doug Levitt has become a major influence on many discussions about homelessness and the widening gap between the poor and the richest in the U.S.Doug Levitt was working for the Presidential election campaign of Democrat John Kerry when he used the bus to drive up support for the Kerry campaign and was given the inspiration to begin “The Greyhound Diaries”.

Parents throughout the boroughs of New York are singing the praises of Eva Moksowitz and her Success Academy Charter Schools. These parents have a very good reason to rejoice. The ones that are fortunate enough to have their children in these charter schools are witnessing a transformation of the neighborhoods and the students that are attending these schools. For a large majority of students the Success Academy is the only path that leads from to a road of potential higher education.
This reason that this works has a lot to do with the course of curriculum and the involvement of the parents. When children enter the doors of the Success Academy Charter Schools they are aware that the expectations are greater. There are greater expectations from their parents. There are greater expectations from the administrative staff. All of this forces children to see the bigger picture. Students are forced to realized that they are the ones that are in control of their own destiny. They have a greater desire to do more and make better grades because they have a much better support system.
The Success Academy schools are spread out in New York. There are more than 40 of these schools that have been placed by the hard word of Eva Moksowitz. She has 4 assistants that help with this charter school organization, but it has been Eva that has put in the hard work to build up the name of the Success Academy. This has become the school that has grown in a way that few people would have ever envision from the initial start.
When Eva started the Success Academy she chose to make Harlem the first location for her charter school. This school would do well and students would get higher grades. This would increase demand for more of the Success Academy schools. This growth can be seen in the 14,000 students that are attending these schools in the New York area. More than 90% of the students that attend are African American, and these students are admitted by a random lottery that is held annually.
The Internet of Things is coming and we are at the point that it cannot be denied. Of course, futurist and tech entrepreneur Jason Hope has made a career out of seeing these sorts of things come to fruition. Jason Hope has been touting the Internet of Things for the past few years and now it seems like his great stake is finally starting to pay off. What is the Internet of Things (IoT)? Well, it is the functional way that the internet will interface with all of our every day life. Jason Hope brought up some salient points on how the airline industry, one of the largest industries in the world, is already embracing the Internet of Things.
Let’s look at how Virgin Atlantic is using the Internet of Things to create a safer world of travel. Virgin Atlantic has their Boeing 787 airplanes completely interfaced with the internet. From the tip of the nose to the back of the tail, each piece of the airplane is interfaced in digital fashion in order to provide live updates as to the stability of the airplane. Can you see how this dramatically improves the safety of airline travel? Airline attendants will know immediately if anything goes wrong. This is the Internet of Things and this is just a single example of how it is going down. The Internet of Things is blending so much more into the rest of our life, more than just the airline industry in the world.
Jason Hope has been touting the Internet of Things for awhile now and the more it comes into fruition the more the rest of the world will revel in it. Jason Hope has done a great many things in his career as a futurist and a lot of it boils back down to his own research at the SENS Foundation. The SENS Foundation is on the cutting edge of many different technologies and right now the Internet of Things is on their mind.
Kate Hudson teamed up with JustFab Inc. Co-CEOs to launch Fabletics in 2013, after seeing a significant gap in the active wear retail space. They offered stylish, good quality workout gear at an affordable price.
So what is Fabletics? Fabletics is an online American member-based fitness store that sells fitness apparel, sportswear, and accessories, commonly known as athleisure. Their clothes are designed to be fun, easy, and take you out from the fitness studio to real life effortlessly.
Fabletics has rapidly grown since 2013. For the company to succeed in fashion when Amazon controls 20% of the online fashion market is no easy task. The subscription mechanic that Fabletics has adopted has been part of the reason for success in the $250million business. This membership model allows for personalized services and trendy clothes and accessories at half the competitors’ prices.
There are two kinds of members in Fabletics; Regular members and VIP members. Signing up as a regular member is pretty easy. All you need is an email address and a password, and you can shop for fitness apparel at regular, slightly more expensive, prices. VIP members, however, get discounted prices, deals on the apparel all at no extra shipping charges. The catch is that VIP members are charged a monthly subscription fee of $49.95 which could be applied to goods shopped unless you decide to “skip” a month.
Another major strategy for Kate Hudson’s Fabletics success is the “reverse-showroom” technique. This is a technique that allows customers to first browse for the product online and then buy it in store after getting a chance to see it in person. Fabletics has cleverly stocked up physical stores based on the data gathered from the online users browsing habits in a particular area.
Kate Hudson’s motivation to materialize stylish and affordable fitness wear has been one encouraging journey. She shared her 5-point recipe for success which has continued to grow her business and produce sales:
The first ingredient is to identify marketing opportunities. Her second recipe is to stay hands on in your business. Element number three is to rely on big data to make decisions. Four is to get inspired and lastly to believe in yourself and take risks.
Fabletics has indeed become a force to be reckoned with. And it all began with a sign-up. Why not try it today. You never know, you just might get hooked: https://www.fabletics.com/get-started

Breast Cancer is a condition affecting many individuals worldwide. It cuts across regions, wealth status and medical advancement levels. Various treatments and interventions have been devised to fight the scourge. Unfortunately, no single method or entity has come up with specific treatment guideline. This gloomy scenario has resulted in more suffering and unnecessary fatalities. As of now, the medical fraternity cannot assure patients of complete breast cancer healing. But behind the scenes, Tempus, the cancer-fighting startup from Groupon founder Erick Lefkofsky is working hard to change this situation.
The drawbacks in treating breast cancer arise from the numerous presentations, mutations and personal backgrounds. To tackle the breast cancer menace, Tempus has come up with a strategy to capture data from patients in all health facilities dealing with cancer. In partnership with the University of Chicago, Tempus will analyze data from over 1,000 cancer patients. This statistics will assist doctors in creating personalized treatment for each patient.Diagnosis of Breast Cancer requires a paradigm that involves targeted therapeutics that exploits the immunological and molecular state of the tumor. Tempus primary focus is to collect and disseminate an acceptable model that doctors can use to match each patient’s molecular profile to their treatment.
To realize this noble idea, the Precision Promise trial, organized by the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) has tapped Tempus to use its disruptive technology in production and analysis of genomic and clinical data. By utilizing Tempus tools, thousands of breast cancer patients’ data will be collected and stored for clinical referencing. Physicians will use this technology in determining the molecular constitution of patient’s cells and focusing therapy on the genomic profile. This targeted treatment is expected to bring positive results to breast cancer patients.Erick Lefkofsky is the co-founder and CEO of Tempus company. This technological company has created an operating system for collecting and preserving data from cancer patients. He graduated from the University of Michigan and received his Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School. Also, he is the co-founder and chairman of Groupon and Uptake technologies.Mr. Lefkofsky together with his wife Liz has established the Lefkofsky Family Foundation. The charitable organization is improving the welfare of people in targeted communities.
One of Reno Nevada’s top hospitals and urgent care centers, Renown Health will get a new family practice clinic underway to deliver primary care services in South Reno. The clinic, located at The Summit Mall, will also make a laboratory available with the likelihood of developing future services.
Initially staffed with 11, the clinic plans to add no less than one more primary care physician and one more nurse practitioner. The 10,000 square foot clinic was set up to put together a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere for its patients.
Dr. McCormack, medical director of Renown Medical Group, commented in a Northern Nevada Business Weekly story, that the space will also be adaptable to include services such as a conference room where staff can take part in conversations with patients. She called attention to the growing population in the area, considerable access to health insurance and the better economy as having boosted the demand for more primary care clinics in the region.
According to Dr. McCormack, the project was completed by companies that are all based in Reno. For example, Shaheen Beauchamp Builders was selected as the general contractor and Eric Fong of MBA Architects + Interior Design carried out the architecture and design. In addition, MSA Engineering Consultants accomplished the mechanical, plumbing and electrical engineering work while an additional dozen local contractors were employed to assist in finishing the work.
Renown Health, which has given assistance to the healthcare needs of Northern Nevada for more than 140 years, is the largest locally owned not-for-profit healthcare network in Northern Nevada. Originally known as the Washoe Health System, Renown Health now has 12 primary care clinics throughout the Reno area and recently opened a primary care clinic in the Caughlin Ranch area.
It is also one of Northern Nevada’s largest employers with more than 5,000 employees. Renown Health is the only Top 100 recognized integrated health networks in Nevada.
