Sahm Adrangi Of Kerrisdale Capital Issues Warning Against Proteostasis Claims

Technology is always advancing, especially in the field of medicine as new cures and treatments are always in the works. Unfortunately, like any other business out there, things are not always what they seem. This looks like the case for a Biotech company that has introduced a new medical treatment for patients to fight cystic fibrosis. Kerrisdale Capital has issued a negative report on said Biotech company with the backing of Sahm Adrangi, Kerrisdale Founder, and CEO. As a leading investment company and one of the most reputable investors in the country, Sahm Adrangi is often heard about and listen to for his insight.

Proteostasis is the Biotech company that Sahm Adrangi is currently calling into question, as he doesn’t believe their medical research was thorough and even reviewed to the maximum extent. Kerrisdale managed to get a closer look into the biotech company and has determined that their research and claims have not be done on an adequate sample sizing since they only had four patients for testing. What Sahm found was that during the trial period for their testing, these four patients experience severe drops in their overall lung performance. With such a small sample size and data that looks sloppy and certainly not finished, Kerrisdale is calling Proteostasis claims into question.

Sahm Adrangi has invested in many companies over the course of his career and to tremendous success because of his insight and deep research protocols. Before investing in a company or letting others know a company is safe, Sahm takes the time to truly dig into a company. This is how he found Proteostasis’s supposed breakthrough was actually much less than what it seemed at the surface. According to the report from Kerrisdale, there are no results to be found through the biotech company’s data. Also, should the biotech company’s drug fail to work, they stand to lose virtually all of their assets, so the desire to produce profits is extremely high. After the initial Kerrisdale report on Proteostasis, the biotech company’s share value fell more than 15 percent.

Clayton Hutson – article recap

As an event organizer for the music industry, Clay Hutson takes pride in being able to put on shows that are memorable for all of the right reasons. That may be why his own company rose to the top, while the recession was putting other similar companies out of business. In fact, it was the recession that prompted Clay to try his own business and he has never looked back.

Mr. Hutson says he gained his education through practical experience, working for other event production companies for several years. Each one of those previous positions taught him something valuable and he took those tools and skills with him, when he launched his own business. Those past experiences have even helped Clay hone his visualization skills, so he can imagine what he wants to get out of each event ahead of time.

Once he has a clear idea about the look, sounds, and feel for the event he’s planning, Hutson uses his CAD skills to bring the experience to life in a more visual way. This helps his team to see what he has in mind and it aids him in seeing what needs adjusting or correcting. In the end, it’s Clay’s business, so he wants to ensure every event is something that can fill him with pride and satisfaction.

Looking at his industry as a whole, Mr. Hutson says he’s excited about tech advances in general, but is happy that lighting has changed. He says it’s nice to be able to supply the same type of lighting with less equipment and with equipment that’s less bulky. Additionally, he says he hopes to see artists stop relying on video. Clay would rather see more artists like Lady Gaga, who do more on stage, as far as actual performing. He’ll be happier to see video projections on stage become a passing trend.

Even before he started working in the field, Clay Hutson knew he wanted to be involved with live performances of some kind. He earned his BFA in theater design and technical production from Central Michigan University, before attending University of Michigan’s Stephen M. Ross School of Business. While there, he earned his MBA, which has helped him in his entrepreneurial endeavor. Learn more:

Herman Law, Advocacy, and a new era for abuse survivors

Actor Corey Feldman, and volleyball star Sarah Powers-Barnhard, have now joined the push on Republicans to support a Democrat sponsored bill in the senate to pass the Child Victims Act. This act, will look to give more support and legal action to those affected by child abuse or rape. It was created by Manhattan Democrat Brad Hoylman, will look to allow a one year window for time barred civil action lawsuits for up to fifty years. The current law has some flaws, as if someone accuses someone of sexual abuse, they only have fire years to bring the case to court. The plaintiff also must be over 18, so they only have a window from 18-23 to bring the case. This current law allows for predators to at times get away if the victim doesn’t report the crime within the window. A coalition called “The New Yorkers Against hidden predators” is gaining speed, but needs full republican support. However, there is hope this will be possible, as a current Quinnipiac polls shows that over 90% of New Yorkers support it.
One of the key figures in the push for new legislation, and support for victims, is Jeff Herman, founder and partner of Herman Law. Jeff is a nationally recognized attorney that has built a career of twenty five years representing over one thousand people in cases of rape and sexual abuse. In 2011, he began to appear on CNN and FOX after a landmark one hundred million dollar case in which he prosecuted a Catholic priest who was accused of abusing his son. Other than just his case, he has represented clients of all ages, and is described as being aggressive and tireless. Having a good understanding of rape cases, he has been trained in forensic interviewing that has helped to minimize trauma and anxiety in victims. Feeling that advocacy is a key to solving the problem, his firm supports bills such as the one that has been pushed in New York as it adds accountability and a voice to those that do not have one.
