Altium Capital Health for a Change

Gottlieb is a revered investor that many had an extensive reputation with a unique eye for value. He decided to start a new firm that is eventually named Altium Capital. In the past, he spent his time working as the CIO of Visium Asset Managment, a firm with a few public downfalls that involved insider trading. After the extensive investigation, Jacob Gottlieb was free and let out without any charges. This is a critical reason as to why he decided to open his own firm and a clean reputation.

As a young man, Gottlieb had a passion for investing. His drive for investing is not only at home, but he brought it out to his classmates and was the winner of a stock picking contest at his school. Gottlieb, with his parents, support ultimately decided to pursue a career in medicine. After much time in university, he graduated with a Bachelor in Arts from Brown University in Economics. He did not stop there and also earned an M.D. from NYU Medical School.

Now he is ready to work as a professional in a world of many flaws. His first job after University was as an analyst for Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. This new job sparked further interest in the space and he decided to continue going to school. This time he wanted to earn his Certified Financial Analyst (CFA) which he received in 2001. As a CFA he gained a lot more standing within the industry, and he left Sanford taking his expertise elsewhere. He moved to Balyasny Asset Managment (BAM) where he truly began to shine. He stayed at his new job for a few years before the entrepreneur inside him screamed for change. This change was to start Visium in 2005, a bold move that would pay off heavily.

Investors came in rather quickly, and he was able to raise $300 million in no time. This lead to a prosperous time of success and Visium grew into an $8 billion fund with 170 employees at its peak. Things changed quickly at the end of 2016 when three employees were charged for insider trading and securities mismarking that artificially inflated not only their pay but the returns for clients. This scandal led Gottlieb to leave the company and pursue his original passion in medicine by investing in companies such as Oramed Pharmaceuticals and Sellas Life Sciences. Both companies he understands with a disruptive roadmap preparing for entry into the broad pharmaceutical and medical fields.

How Alastair Borthwick Became An Acclaimed Author

Alastair Borthwick was a Scottish man who lived from February 17, 1913, until September 25, 2003. He was an author, broadcaster, journalist, and soldier in the second world war. He wrote two books, one before the war and one after. His first book was “Always a Little Further” which came out in 1939. This was a book filled with humor where he wrote about outdoor activities. It was a collection of the writing he had written for a small newspaper, the Glasgow Herald. This book is still considered a classic.

His second book is also regarded as a classic. This one was published in 1946 and it was called, “Sans Peur, The History of the 5th (Caithness and Sutherland) Battalion, the Seaforth Highlanders”. It has been reprinted many times including in 1994. What makes this book different is that it is told through his eyes as a junior officer. Most regimental history books like this are instead written by a committee or a retired general.

Alastair Borthwick never finished school having left to get a job when he was 16. He first worked at the Glasgow Evening Herald where his job as a “telephone boy” was to answer the phone and write copy from this newspaper’s traveling correspondents. He moved up when he joined the Glasgow Weekly Herald in short order. This newspaper had just five people on the staff who had a 28-page newspaper to fill each day. He took on multiple roles including writing and editing the page for women, one for children, answering readers’ letters, and reviewing films. He even compiled its crossword puzzles.

He joined the Daily Mirror in 1935 but decided that being a part of Fleet Street simply wasn’t for him. He was basically happy when he got fired in 1936 because it enabled him to become a radio broadcaster which was much more suitable for his laid-back informality. During the war, Alastair Borthwick served as a soldier and then a junior officer, fighting in North Africa and Europe. After the war was over he went back to radio broadcasting and then became a popular television broadcaster. Check out Alastair’s Life Among the Scots here.

How Victoria Doramus Cleaned Up Her Life After Coming To Grips With Her Addictions

Even though she is still pretty young Victoria Doramus has been through quite a bit during her life and has overcome some stiff challenges. After completing high school she became a student at the Boulder campus of the University of Chicago. She graduated with a degree in mass communication and journalism which she used to enter the media industry. Her first job was at Mindshare where she was an assistant media planner where she helped to create branded content and establish relationships with media account executives.

A few years later Victoria Doramus joined Creative Arts Agency in Los Angeles. Her job involved creating original editorial content, attending trade shows, and professional and personal scheduling for the executives of this firm. This led to her finding a job at Trendera as their west coast director and then working for Stila Cosmetics where she was a market trend analyst.

While this all sounds pretty glamorous, behind the scenes she was increasingly using drugs and alcohol. She was addicted to these substances and, despite a couple of trips to rehab, she kept returning to her addictions. It took hitting rock bottom before Victoria Doramus could turn her life around, take a long rehabilitation stay seriously, and find a way to stay sober. She now lives in New York City and makes it a point to attend addiction meetings on a weekly basis in order to stay away from drugs and alcohol.

Victoria Doramus now spends her time as an addiction expert and volunteering her time at nonprofits like the Women’s Prison Association, the Amy Winehouse Foundation, Room to Read, and Best Friends Animal Society. She also has big plans to open a halfway house in New York for other people recovering from addiction and who need help staying clean while transitioning from life in a rehabilitation organization to a more independent life.


The End Citizens is the Voice of Americans

The End Citizens United is the Voice of Americans

With the decision made by the Supreme Court in 2010, the United States’ election has never been the same. The Supreme Court passed a law allowing people vying for different positions to use as much money as they need without being subjected to an investigation into the source of money. This literally meant that elections could be bought in the United States. With the existence of this law, the rich had more chances of winning because they could buy the elections at the expense of the poor who could not afford to spend large sums of money.

The 2010 law led to the formation of End Citizens United in 2015 which was meant to fight the big wigs in America who were willing to spend a fortune in order to win elections. Contrary to the large corporations which are financed by the rich, End Citizens united is sponsored by the common citizens from grassroots who give their donations with the goal of getting leaders of their own choice to win elections. According to Richard Carbo, who is the Director of Communication, the group targets to collect up to 30 million dollars that will be used to achieve the group’s goal.

Reasons Candidates are running away from Corporate PAC Sponsorship

Since the End Citizens united group was formed numerous candidates especially the ones from the Democratic Party have started refusing sponsorship from the corporate PAC. Besides the fact that PAC majorly gave money to the candidates who are seeking reelections for various posts, recently none of them have accepted the money offered by the PAC. Most of the candidates have refused to receive the sponsorship because they believe that citizens perceive those leaders who refuse to take the corporate money as leaders who have the interests of the common citizens.

The war between the End Citizens and PAC Corporate began when the Democratic leaders realized that majority of the decisions especially those that relate to finance were decided by the leaders sponsored by PAC Corporations. Majority of these decisions were often decided against the needs of the average Americans. This became a problem for the common citizens who decided to give their donations that will be used to sponsor leaders who protect their interests.

Hussain Sajwani, Family, and Other 800 VVIPs Attend a Private Dinner Party At Mar-a-Lago

Shortly after the 2016 U.S presidential elections that gave Donald Trump a landslide win over his close competitor Democrat Hilary Clinton, Trump invited a handful of close friends to a VVIP private dinner party. It happened that the dinner party that Trump planned coincidentally took place during the Eve of The New Year. Among the invitees were DAMAC Properties CEO and founder Hussain Sajwani, who traveled from Dubai, the headquarters of his company together with his family.

In his view, Trump invited the 800 guests to share with them his joy and at the same time show appreciation for their tireless support to see him win the election. When introducing the DAMAC Properties CEO Hussain Sajwani to the rest of his friends, the President-elect called the Sajwanis ‘the most beautiful family’ in Dubai. Although this may have been a mere talk, it can be taken to mean that Trump personally appreciates the DAMAC Properties founder.

When he stood to accept the invitation, Hussain Sajwani acknowledged that it was an honor to be among the few that were invited to the private dinner party. He told the close to 1,000 attendees that the two families have had close ties that started a long time ago. “Today is one of the happiest moments of my family. Although we have met the Trump family on several occasions before, my family and I have never been part of a large friendship like this before. Trump and his wife Ivanka have visited us in Dubai on many occasions before but I must agree that never have I ever been joyous as tonight,” Sajwani said.

Hussain Sajwani founded DAMAC Properties, a real estate, engineering, architecture, building and construction company in 1976. Since it was started, this Dubai-based company has grown to become one of the most recognized property management agencies in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). To date, DAMAC has employed thousands of employees who include various industry experts and has built more than 22,700 separate units. Most of the buildings are for commercial and residential purposes. With the help of DAMAC, Hussain Sajwani has built the Trump International Course Dubai in honor of his friend Donald

Although he is a rich man, Hussain does not believe that the wealthy should live their own lives forgetting the poor. For this reason, Hussain donates to various charitable organizations in his country. Recently, he donated 2 million AED to clothe 50,000 children after the UAE His Highness Sheikh Mohammed asked well-wishers to support his Ramadan Initiative.
