With mental illness now becoming a hot topic of importance, only one company has committed to not only become advocates of the cause but also provide a service to aid those being affected by this disease. Talkspace, a recent startup company aimed at providing people with instant therapist sessions via chat has announced that they will not be introducing senior medical director at UnitedHealth Neil Leibowitz into the Talkspace team.
The move by CEO Oren Frank has been seen as a strategic move as the company is rumored to be heading into an IPO. According to CEO Oren Frank, the company has reached its one-millionth user. This milestone comes as no surprise due to the affordability of the service provided by Talkspace compared that to the average face to face therapy sessions that can go up into the hundreds. Oren Frank also stated that because of this achievement, the company is now generating tens of millions of dollars per year. Follow Oren Frank on his Twitter
The introduction of Neil Leibowitz also allows Talkspace therapist to be able to prescribe medicines to their users. There is at the time no word from Oren Frank if he will deny the issuance of certain medicines such as opiates. In addition to assisting Talkspace with the medical side of the business, Neil Leibowitz will also be apart of the corporates side of things as Neil Leibowitz also has worked as an insurance executive. This move by Oren Frank will allow the company to seek the sale of their talkspace service to employers. Recent data shows that there has been a serious increase in issues regarding mental illness and various forms of depression.
Neil Leibowitz stated that he was initially skeptical about Talkspace’s service and the ability to really connect with people simply through chat. However, after a few meetings with CEO Oren Frank and his team, Neil was convinced that the work was really incredibly important to the cause.
Life after retirement is a daunting prospect, one which most American citizens worry about, think about and plan for their whole lives. As soon as a young adult begins to earn from an investment option and manage their finances, the first thought that occurs in their head is of making sure that when life gets tough, and resources and cash flow run dry they must be prepared and must have something to fall back on. While that phase can come at any time the one time we’re sure it will happen is after retirement, and so we start preparing for it as soon as we can.
There are many money making schemes of course offered by the authorities that are supposed to help us in this endeavor such as 401(k) accounts and social security benefits, but these are often proven inadequate, and our usual lifestyles are buried beneath the avalanche of these inadequacies. This is a problem recognized and in his own view solved by the senior analyst at Banyan Hill, Matt Badiali. Matt Badiali has brought forward a scheme of investment called freedom checks which claim to bring back extraordinary investment returns to its investors. While the claim may make one skeptical, however, there is more this story.Basically, Matt Badiali has created a list of the small number of companies in the United States which qualify for the Statue 26-F of the United States tax code.
What is Statue 26-F? It is a legislation which was passed in 1986 that exempted companies from taxation if they get at least 90 percent of their revenue from transporting, storing, producing, or processing America’s natural resources. This exemption from federal taxes is what makes the companies that Matt Badiali is offering so lucrative investments opportunity and is the reason behind the success of freedom checks. Investment in freedom checks can start from as small as a 10 dollar investment, and due to the high return coming from these companies your money will have the potential to double and triple in very little time. Freedom Checks has various investment options available and is an attractive option for anyone wishing to retire comfortably and maybe even earlier than planned.
Who is Igor Cornelsen? What is his legacy and how did he become successful? Ignor Cornelsen is a successful investor who’s a retired banker. In the year of 1947, Ignor Cornelsen was born in Curitiba Brazil. He started attending college at the federal university of Parana and started engineering classes. At the time this college was one of the very few schools that offered classes and engineering and getting accepted into this school wasn’t easy so it was a huge accomplishment.
He studied engineering for about two years at the federal university of paraana then decided to change his major to economics since he enjoyed statistics and numbers. He graduated in 1970 then got himself a bank investment job in rio Multibanco. This was a common job for recent college graduates in his field due to their skills in calculating abilities, also computers weren’t big in business yet so they had a big advantage.
With his success and skills in the position, Ignor Cornelsen was able to network and connect with others. This helped open even more doors in the banking world for him. Cornelsen worked hard for his fruits and labor, he slaved for days at the office building while perfecting his investment strategies. Then he got lucky. he wws invited to the board of governors in 1997 then two years later he became the CEO.
Later in the year 1978, Bank of America decided to acquired Multibanco, so Ignor left to find better opportunities. The first opportunity he found was for a business called Unibanco, Unibanco was the main investment companies at that time so he instantly jumped on it. However, inflation rates went up rapidly so he left in 1978, then he found a new job as an investment adviser at a company called Libra bank PLC. This was his niche and it eventually lead to him becoming a millionaire.
Is Michigan’s Betsy DeVos a nervous lady? Not in the slightest. People who have been around this United States gal know all too well that she has a temperament that’s suitable for most tough jobs. She doesn’t feel fear frequently. People know that she’s a bold figure who likes to tackle all of the toughest things about being alive. Education is a pretty tricky subject within the United States and all around the world. People have so many questions that pertain to education and the youth of tomorrow. DeVos has many questions that relate to the topic as well. She wonders if the young people of America will be able to select their educational institutions soon. It’s a question that often stops her from being able to remain asleep at night. If DeVos does a lot of tossing and turning in her bed, it’s probably because she’s contemplating bettering the educational system in the United States. She understands education and how it operates in the country. She sees things with her own eyes. She talks to people who know firsthand as well. Parents in the United States know about the educational system better than anyone else. DeVos has been a participant in countless conversations with parents. She’s opened up dialogue that aims to fortify matters. There have been parents who have poured their hearts out to her at charter schools in the Midwest. There have been parents who have told her how awful they feel about their realities. Many parents can’t afford steep tuition costs for their kids. This bothers them deeply. It can be difficult for parents to have influence regarding their kids’ educational plans. Students generally have to go to schools that are based on their neighborhoods and communities. DeVos doesn’t think that this makes any sense at all. She wants young Americans to be able to select schools based on their educational aspirations. She likes charter schools and their efforts.
DeVos functions as the Secretary of Education in the massive United States. President Donald Trump is the man who gave her this rare opportunity. DeVos is a team player who likes to shine. She isn’t the kind of person who ever likes to disappoint others. Laziness just isn’t something that’s a choice for her. She approaches her days like they’re thrilling quests. Her quests typically revolve around doing beneficial and valuable things for the people of America and beyond.
Most of us believe that supply and demand fundamentals dictate the prices of everyday commodities. This is typically not the case in the short-term. One such commodity that is not trading based on these basic economic principles is copper. One financial advisor Matt Badiali, feels that copper is completely out of tune with reality. According to his research, the demand for copper is significantly higher than the supply. If supply and demand fundamentals were in line, copper should be higher than it is trading today. In the long-term these economic principles do hold, however, there are several factors that have played into the poor price action performance for the metal.
Matt Badiali spent many years traveling around the world as a geologist. He has personally inspected the natural resource assets of numerous corporations. As a financial advisor with a strong background in natural resources, he makes it his priority to stay on top of the developments of the worlds most important commodities.
He feels that irrational fear in the markets is the main reason for the poor performance for copper. The fear comes from the trade war between the United States and China. Many financial analysts feel that the trade war is going to push the world into a recession. China consumes an exorbitant amount of copper and may end up consuming substantially less in poor economic conditions. Matt Badiali recently read from a Bloomberg article about a Grasberg copper mine that was not going to be finished being constructed on time. As a geologist, Matt Badiali is familiar with the delays in the mining industry. He also has pointed out that some major producers are anticipating deficits in their copper production. He feels these factors are going to launch copper in a bull market.
Matt Badiali feels that copper is presenting the value investor with a substantial opportunity. Copper has very strong long-term fundamentals. Governments around the world are trying to push an agenda to go green. Many solar and windmill energy projects are going to require copper. The area that Mr. Badiali feels is going to be the most promising is the electric car. He is urging investors to focus on the long-term fundamentals for copper and not get scared of the short-term irrationality.
Neurocore, a company with eight clinical locations throughout Michigan and Florida, provides applied neurofeedback services to regular people with big problems, athletes, and even other types of celebrities. One important question comes to mind for some as they read such news. What, exactly, is applied neurofeedback? The concept isn’t too hard to understand if one can understand the concept of an EEG or electrophysiological graph. See more information about Neurocore at Linkedin.com.
So our brains use a combination of chemistry and electricity to communicate with our bodies and call the shots. While managing chemical processes is much more difficult, dangerous and requires medication, managing electrical impulses and the thought processes tied to them is quick, easier and much more effective as a long-term solution for patients. The EEG type of readings allows the clinic employee to see the brain’s feedback so that a reward system can be implemented to serve a variety of purposes.
Neurocore creates a reward system involving positive reinforcement through repetition. This changes the way some thoughts occur, and can also eliminate thought processes that are undesirable (i.e. “I sure would like a cigarette.) The clinic employees get brain feedback and then use it to positively alter the brain. This is the core of Neurofeedback and the reason that Neurocore runs eight successful clinics with no shortage of celebrity clientele. Follow Neurocore on Twitter.
Perhaps the most exciting thing regarding Neurocore is their ability to treat depression and ADHD through applied neurofeedback instead of with medication. As discussed previously, these patients really require a long-term answer for a serious mental illness. Decreasing the type of alpha based activity that feeds depression can train the brain to fight the chronic blues without the need to be chemically altered. Aside from medications having lists of potentially dangerous side effects, nobody likes being chemically altered perpetually (unless of course, this is the brain disease that you wish to cure.)
Neurocore utilizes applied neurofeedback to give treatment options to people that might not be on board with some of the medication that is on the market. This sort of feedback has been studied since the late 1960’s, and with good results too.
The healthcare investment industry is putting money into some really exciting startups and early-stage ventures over the past few years. One hedge fund manager in this industry, Jacob Gottlieb, MD, CFA, PRMIA, is one of these investors with hid company Altium Capital. At this firm, based in New York City, he invests exclusively in healthcare companies that are coming up with meaningful medical treatments.
A few of the companies that Jacob Gottlieb has decided to invest in are Oragenics, Oramed Pharmaceuticals, and Amarin Corporation. He took a 5.61 percent stake in Oramed Pharmaceuticals which created a treatment for diabetes that is taken orally rather than the traditional method of using a needle. They have three treatments which are an analog capsule, a Glucagon-like peptide-1, and an insulin capsule.
Amarin, which Jacob Gottlieb invested in as his second investment at newly formed Altium Capital, is a company based in Dublin, Ireland. They are creating drugs that will help to improve cardiovascular health. They are combining the benefits of polyunsaturated fatty acids with their expertise in lipid science. They have one drug now approved by the FDA called Vascepa which provides prescription strength omega-3 fatty acids. This drug went on the market in 2012.
Jacob Gottlieb says he invested in Oragenics because he believes they will become a trendsetter when it comes to creating novel antibiotics to fight infectious diseases. They engage in what is known as Replacement Therapy which involves replacing the harmful bacteria in a body with good bacteria. This results in a healthier body and they are using it to develop a treatment for oral mucositis.
Jacob Gottlieb is pretty happy with his initial three investments at his latest hedge fund and is looking forward to investing in more exciting healthcare firms. He has been in the hedge fund industry since 2001.
Sameer Jejurikar, MD, is a plastic surgeon who applies his skills at the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute in downtown Dallas, Texas. Over the past 21 years, he has helped thousands of people who want to have elective surgery performed on them. He can handle elective surgery involving the eyes, nose, overall face, breasts, and body. Plastic surgery is just as much of an art form as it is a science and he has mastered both of these aspects.
He is said to have a warm approach to his patients and is sensitive to their needs. This approach led to him being honored in 2013 with the 2012 Compassionate Doctor Certification. This is a certification managed by Patients’ Choice. They look at 100 million annual reviews left on their website as well as UcompcareHealthCare and Vitals in order to determine the select few doctors that receive this certification each year.
Dr. Sameer Jejurikar says that having cosmetic surgery, unfortunately, results in scars but there are ways to mitigate their appearance. He says if you’re going to have to have these scars than they should be made cosmetically beautiful. Making a precise closure of any surgical openings is critical, of course, but what patient’s do after the surgery is also very important.
He says the first rule of scars is to protect them from the UV rays of the sun. Dr. Sameer Jejurikar says this can cause permanent discoloration and damage of any scar tissue. He says that clothing itself isn’t enough. He tells his patients to stay indoors if they can and if not they need to apply either a bandage or silicon strip over the scar. He tells them they can also use a sunscreen but it needs to be at a minimum SPF 30.

Paul Mampilly is a an expert investor who used to work on Wall Street. He now works for the people, and he has joined Banyan Hill Publishing as a senior editor in order to have a platform to share his advice. Mampilly has worked for some well known companies and firms in the past and has made quite a name for himself in the investment industry. For a lot of his career, he worked hard to increase the wealth of the wealthy and is now tired of doing so. Instead, he is driven, now, by a desire to help average Americans with their investing. He wants to make a real difference, and he knew he had to leave Wall Street to do that.
Paul Mampilly has been featured on many different media outlets and channels including Fox Business News, CNBC, and Bloomberg TV. He is also featured in a couple of different newsletters he writes for, and these are Profits Unlimited and the Winning Investor Daily. He also created and maintains two elite trading services, which are known as True Momentum and Extreme Fortunes. He teamed up with Banyan Hill Publishing in 2016, and since then, more than 90,000 people have subscribed to his newsletter. Mampilly is now technically retired, but he actually has simply chosen to go into business for himself as an advisor and writer.
Paul Mampilly has noticed that over the last twenty years, or so, that computers have changed the way that the trading game is ran for many people. When he managed billion dollar hedge funds in the past, his competition were all humans. Today, a lot of the trading that is done for large hedge funds is done by computers, which rely on algorithms. He has admitted that it is like these computers are using the same information against the regular, everyday investor and that this gives them an advantage. He has also noticed that ETFs have pretty much replaced mutual funds, to a certain degree, and that these are decent passive investments. Paul Mampilly has also commented that ETFs have made it more difficult to find the kinds of quality stock picks that were easier to find in the past because they include hundreds of different stocks.
