Greg Secker and Bringing The Best Out of The Trading Business

Greg Secker is a renowned English businessman best known for being the owner of Learn To Trade. In a recent interview, Greg Secker described himself as the kind of person who asks the ‘Why not?’ question rather than ‘Why?’. According to him, this approach has seen him succeed a lot as a businessman. He started his business career while still a student at the University. He started by making and selling computers.

Secker’s work with computers made him grow into a developer and eventually landing a job in the finance sector. He got involved in the making of the Virtual Trading Desk which is the pioneer of online currency trading. Working on this project saw him deeply understand foreign exchange trading. With this knowledge, he was able to make £60,000 from just £5,000 within one year. His success is owed to employing a risk-managed approach to every individual trade.

Soon after making a good amount from the trading business, Secker retired. He shifted his focus to helping others make money by giving the relevant advice on the matter. Under the Greg Secker Foundation, young people have been empowered with the relevant life skills to have a bright future. The foundation has been able to reach the youth primarily through the Youth Leadership Summit. This has been done in South Africa with plans in place to roll out a similar program in Australia.

Securus Technologies Supplies the Communications Need

Securus Technologies provides communications capability between incarcerated individuals in over 2,200 correctional facilities in the United States and Canada. Based out of Dallas, Texas, Securus offers their services to over 1.2 million incarcerated individuals and their families.

 

There are several different types of plans that are available for the convenience of the inmates and their families. There is a prepaid option where the fees are paid in advance, there is a direct billing option where a billing is sent to the family on a monthly basis, there is the traditional collect call, where the recipient of the call pays the bill, and there is an inmate debit account where the inmate pays for the call.

 

There is an inmate voicemail feature that allows families to call the inmate, but if he or she is not available, a voicemail can be left and the inmate can return the call when it is convenient. There are times when an inmate may be working, eating or sleeping and may not be available for a call, and this is a nice convenience.

 

In addition, a video conferencing is available so families don’t have to take the time and expense of driving to the correctional facility to see their loved one who is incarcerated. Instead, they can set a pre scheduled time to visit via the video. It is just like being there, only they don’t have to wait in line or put up with the hassle of dealing with the time and distance.

 

Securus Technologies is a leader in the field of inmate communications and the very latest in technology and security is engineered into the system. The difference in inmate attitude and behavior is remarkable since Securus has been able to implement their systems. A voice from home is a welcome event at any time a person is incarcerated.

OSI Group’s David McDonald Shifts His Focus To The Chinese Market

David McDonald knows well that for global corporations such as OSI, it is impossible to run them using a one-size-fits-all strategy. Each of the company’s subsidiaries needs specialized strategies that are formulated with their local clients in mind. OSI satisfies this need by ensuring that their subsidiaries are run using local talents who are born and raised in the areas. These individuals are fully aware of the local market.

They can easily come up with business strategies that satisfy the needs of the market. David McDonald OSI Group notes that this approach is especially important in the food industry where local tastes may vary greatly.

OSI Group is an Aurora-based provider of value-added protein products. The company has managed to expand its operations globally through establishing new facilities and acquiring other food processing companies. David McDonald says that the acquisition of Baho Food did not only enable it to widen its area of operation and client base, but also broaden the variety of its products. Presently, the company has at least 80 processing plants. These plants are located in Europe, America, and China. In total, the company has opened its plants in 17 countries.

Over the years, McDonald has been working closely with Sheldon Lavin to help the company to dominate the Chinese market. Since entering the market 20 years ago, OSI has become China’s largest producer of processed poultry products. Under David McDonald’s leadership, OSI Group has been able to develop more facilities such as the new mega-plant located in Henan province. Its client base has also continued to grow. Today, they supply food products to Subway, Burger King, Papa John’s, Saizeriya, Yum, and McDonald’s. According to osigroup.com, the company’s operations in China continue to grow with the population that is becoming more affluent.

About David McDonald

David McDonald is a Chicago-based corporate leader. The visionary leader works at OSI Group as the company’s President and Chief Operating Officer.

Formerly, the alumnus of Iowa State University worked as the company’s project manager, a position that provided him with crucial experience for his current position. David graduated from the university in 1987 with a Bachelor of Science degree.

Everything’s Bigger in Texas

Highland Capital Management from Dallas, Texas takes the phrase very seriously. Don’t be fooled, though they only have one hundred employees and four offices (their offices range from Dallas to New York, and across the pacific in Seoul, and Singapore) they still manage to be one of the largest bank asset management firms in the world. On top of that Highland Capital Management has their hand in everything ranging from healthcare, oil and energy, bankruptcy and restructuring, real estate, and more.

 

Last year the Highland Small Cap Equity mutual fund delivered returns almost three times the S&P 500 for 2016. The fund was managed by Michael Steven, alongside Highland Capital’s president and co-founder James Dondero. Steven explained that the fund’s major success was due to strategic energy stock picks. The secret to their success was strategic partnerships with pipelines helped them take advantage when the price of a barrel of oil fell below $50. Steven also explained that none of the companies slashed or reduced their dividend rate once Highland purchased the shares. The small cap fund that Steven manages is only about $55 million, but it is still able to generate serious profit when used appropriately. With the New Year Highland reported divesting about two thirds of their energy assets to further diversify their interests in the coming year.

 

In fact, the only losses in Highland’s portfolio last year came from the healthcare sector. This is likely due to the current confusion and direction of the healthcare industry in recent years, but that doesn’t scare Steven or Dondero of Highland. Steven reported that insurance companies are finally coming around to properly addressing the “opioid epidemic” sweeping the US. This means the insurance companies are fast tracking drugs and products that can instantly and safely block the brain’s opioid receptors. This means lifesaving like Narcan that can save someone from an overdose can be as easily administered as your average nasal spray.

 

At the end of the day, these gains from all sectors are re-invested into local communities through Highland’s various charity arms. Maybe everything really is bigger in Texas.

Eric Pulier Hasn’t Quit Developing Software And Apps Despite Setbacks

Eric Pulier is a former advisor to Microsoft and IBM and has been an engineer on many business software solutions. He’s had a lot of success but hasn’t been without setbacks. One of those setbacks happened when the promise of one company to turn a cloud platform into a big revenue platform didn’t happen. But Pulier didn’t stop and now he runs vAtomic Systems, a company that’s working on business apps using gaming technology to make real world issues economically viable. Pulier is also on the Board of Innovators at XPrize Foundation, a program for young scientists and programmers to address global scientific issues.

Pulier took an interest in computer programming not long after learning how to read and write, compiling his first program when he was only the 4th grade. He was running a database service in high school, and while he attended Harvard University he took what he described as the hardest computer science courses at MIT. He also was a contributor to the Harvard Crimson prior to earning his bachelor’s degree in literature in 1988.

Pulier decided to bring together a team of people with unique talents and interests in 1991 that became known as People Doing Things, and out of that group he started Digital Evolution. This company used interactive media and web design marketing to cater to big clients that included Warner Brothers, Disney, Toyota and Microsoft. This company was merged with US Interactive in 1998. The company’s accomplishments include hosting the Presidential Technology Exhibit in 1997 and Starbright World in 1998.

Eric Pulier decided to move into virtual applications and cloud technology in the service-oriented architecture in the 2000s, and under US Interactive he started Akana, Desktone and ServiceMesh. He’s one of the authors of Understanding Enterprise SOA, a college textbook commonly used in various IT courses. Pulier’s ServiceMesh was bought by the Computer Sciences Corporation, and while serving on the Board of Executives there he started TM Platform’s Enterprise Leadership Council. After leaving the CSC, Pulier decided to go into technology startup seeding and investing and got the idea for vAtomic Systems.

Texans Can See Hippos Again! Say Thank You to James Dondero for That

James Dondero is doing the important work of bringing back hippos to the Dallas Zoo. Because of this, not to mention because of his great work as the CEO of Highland Capital Management, he is very popular among people in Texas. He is a very big philanthropist who has been donating to all sorts of cultural landmarks and attractions in Texas. One of these is the Dallas Zoo.

You see, the Dallas Zoo had no hippos for around a decade and a half. Since their old hippo died in 2001, there were no hippos in the zoo. What James Dondero did is donate money for reestablishing the hippo exhibit. James talked about his work in helping hippo lovers see hippos again on his Facebook page last year, and in April of this year, he did just that and the zoo finally has its hippos back.

So how much did James Dondero donate? He made a massive and eye popping donation of one million dollars! Highland donated that money, and with it the Highland Capital Lodge was built, so that zoo visitors can stand on it — it is five thousand square feet wide — to view the hippos.

The president of the Dallas Zoo said that he was most satisfied with the new outpost that was built with the help of the donation from James Dondero and Highland Capital Management. He said that the new hippo, which weighs three thousand pounds, is sure to be a very popular attraction after so many years of having no hippos in the zoo.

With this research shines a light on how sleeping disorders can transform into complications, and it has opened the mind of scientists, researchers and physicians alike that urgency is the key to counter sleep apnea.

 

 

One of these physicians who are doing their best to counter the effects of sleep apnea is Dr. Avi Weisfogel, known to be the one who established a program called the Dental Sleep Masters. He has a superb background in researching and treating patients with sleep disorders, and has been practicing for a long time. Initially a dentist working with Old Bridge Dental Care, his curiosity with sleep suddenly kicked in. He then decided to do research and studies about sleep disorders, doing with alongside his 15 year career in dentistry, which has given his awards and recognitions. He is serious about this idea and really passionate as to how he can combat sleeping disorders and also finding a way on how to treat patients who are suffering from the disorder.

 

 

His research about sleeping disorders brought him knowledge about companies who are also doing the same thing – studying how to counter these disorders and finding a way to completely treat patients suffering from it. Through months after careful research, he found a way on how it can be possible that dentistry and sleep disorders are related. In the year 2014, he established the Dental Sleep Masters and it has helped scientists from around the world break into the sleeping disorder mystery that has been puzzling them for years. Different citations and experimentations where performed, until they have discovered that the use of oral appliances are somewhat effective in treating sleep disorders. Dr. Avi Weisfogel has used this approach to treat his patients, while at the same time keeping his network of dentists, to identify patients who have to be treated with sleeping disorders.
