Harvard’s Newest Elite Product

Harvard has long been known for its academic standing and the noticeable students that come out of it. Now Harvard is being recognized for something else, it’s basketball team. Yanni Hufnagel has been a bench coach on Harvard for 4 years and is already being called a coaching phenom. Harvard just won the Ivy League for the first time ever and the credit is going to the young Jewish coach.

Yanni Hufnagel is being praised for his remarkable recruiting abilities. Those abilities led to Harvard producing notable NBA star Jermey Lin. He was never the best basketball player so instead he went into sports broadcasting. While broadcasting for a public network people immediately noticed the basketball knowledge he had, and the places he could go. At Cornell he spent one season as the basketball manager. From there he got an internship with the New York Nets doing laundry. His big moment came when he got a graduate assistant job at Oklahoma. Yanni Hufnagel became noticed by then star Blake Griffin, whom he helped in the gym early in the morning and late at night. From there he worked his way onto Harvard as a volunteer assistant coach. He continues to make a name for himself as an assistant coach and soon will be able to pick a job at a traditional powerhouse school.

Some career highlights include Hufangel being credited with landing the 29th overall recruiting class at Vanderbilt in 2014. Also at the University of California he helped get Jaylen Brown and Ivan Rabb to commit, leading them to the NCAA tournament that year.

 

Desiree Perez Helps Artists Get More Royalties

Tidal was a company that was doing music streaming, but this company was not very well known. It was not until Jay-Z decided to buy this company that people would see what Tidal was all about. The thing Jay-Z knew that he needed to do was change the outlook for this music streaming service. He knew that he could not keep everything the same because he had a different type of plan. He was interested in helping music artists get royalties on their music, and this allowed him to change the course of music streaming.

 

Desiree Perez is the person that is helping Jay-Z transition to a much better music streaming service. She is grinding out the negotiations for contracts, and she is definitely one that sees a great vision for the Tidal company. This company is moving at a very fast pace, and it appears that more people are interested in premium music streaming. This is lossless audio that has better quality than some of the other free music streaming sites. Desiree Perez is definitely taking that into consideration when she negotiates contracts for artists. This type of premium service is what allows royalties to increase for artists that are providing the content. That has always been the problem with the music streaming industry because several of the popular sites are free. This reduces the money that the artists can get from the music that is streamed by fans.

 

It is going to be interesting to see how Desiree Perez helps Jay-Z work with Sprint to continue building Tidal. There has already been a commitment to invest in this company, and Sprint has the ability to bring Tidal to even more customers. Desiree Perez is in place to help Jay-Z coordinate this relationship and build a bigger customer base.

Achieve Brilliant Hair With Cleansing Conditioner

The hair care industry has been keeping some scary secrets from us for decades. Recent studies have shown that most commercial hair care products contain ingredients that seriously damage out hair. Brands use these toxic ingredients because they are cheap and keep manufacturing costs down.

Ingredients like sulfates and preservatives strip hair of its natural protective oils that keep it feeling soft and healthy. Many of these ingredients also damage the skin on the scalp, resulting in embarrassing dandruff.

Even worse, lots of these popular commercial hair care ingredients have recently been linked to health conditions. For instance, synthetic fragrances come from petroleum. When we expose our skin to petroleum, traces of the chemical enter our bloodstream through our pores and cause damage to the body. Over time, this chemical can lead to problems like hormonal imbalances and birth defects. If you wash your hair every single day, just imagine how much petroleum is entering your body.

It seems like many commercial hair care brands are not bothered by these studies. After all, by loading their products with these cheap chemicals, they can increase profits. However, these brands are rapidly losing customers because of a new product on the market called the cleansing conditioner.

Cleansing conditioners clean and condition hair without using any toxic chemicals. Instead, these products rely on plant-based ingredients that nourish hair. The most popular cleansing conditioner on the market is WEN Cleansing Conditioner. This product contains ingredients like chamomile extract, rosemary and other botanical extracts.

WEN Cleansing Conditioner is gentle on hair. Because it contains no sulfates, it won’t strip the hair of its natural oils. Instead, it uses ingredients like vegetable glycerin to provide hair with loads of moisture. As a result, hair is silky, healthy and free of frizz.

Thanks to WEN Cleansing Conditioner, we can finally clean and condition our hair without exposing ourselves to dangerous and harsh chemicals.

Betsy DeVos Speaks Up About Philanthropy & Education Reform

In a recent interview with The Philanthropy Roundtable, noted philanthropist, education reformer and current Secretary of Education for the United States of America, sat down to speak about her experiences and thoughts on her primary issue – financial giving and educational choice.

The interviewer opened up the conversation by asking Ms. DeVos what her thoughts on the progress of school reform (for those unaware, Ms. DeVos has been a long time advocate of school choice and has vigorously opposed the common core schema) in America where. Ms. DeVos replied that she had never been more confident. She noted that one of the reasons why she was so confident in the future of education in America was twofold, firstly, the falling popularity of common core (the current unified, standardized education initiative of the United States) system as well as the rise in popularity of the school choice movement. She notes that there are now more than 250,000 students in over 33 different, public funded school options programs in seventeen states. As of the previous year the specific number of people who are enrolled in education option programs has increased by 40,000. Betsy DeVos believes the increase in public funded private school interest coincides directly with the increase of a collective realization that the public education edifice does not work and has not worked for some time.

When asked by the interviewer about her philanthropic work Ms. DeVos responded that there was no single event that drew her into it, but rather a gradual series of events. She went on to elaborate on what she meant by saying that one of the most formative things to occur to her as regards her philanthropic work was her and her husband’s, Dick DeVos, numerous visits to the Potter’s House Christian School which has a long and storied history of helping the poor and the needy via numerous outreach programs and philanthropy work. She noted that, despite the grim challenges that Potter’s House was constantly faced with the atmosphere of the place was always one of respect, dignity, care and rigorousness – something which she found deeply appealing and which spurned her on to create the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation, a supportive group that helps foster philanthropic and artistic/communal efforts all across the globe.

Chance Did Amazing On Good Morning America

The rapper Chance recently performed on Good Morning America. He performed his hit song “Summer Friends.” The crowd loved it. There more people in the studio than normal, and there were more people than normal watching from home, too. Chance did something very special with his song. He had his producers use certain technology to make the song sound more amazing. The result was his voice sounding like a robot and the piano sounding like glass.

 

The rapper Chance also gave an interview with the host of Good Morning America. He talked about how he plans to have a new album coming out soon. He also discussed how he plans to have a different style than all other rappers in the industry. Chance further stated that many rappers talk about the same thing today. Chance went on to mention that hip-hop has a trend to not talk about certain subjects within music. One of these subjects is God.

Goettl Air Conditioning Shows Generosity To Las Vegas Families

Goettl Air Conditioning is based in Tempe, AZ but they also operate in Tucson and are now growing in the Las Vegas market. They have been such a highly reviewed company because they emphasize doing the job right and completing it up to every specification in the book. Goettl has primarily serviced residential customers over the years, but they’ve entered light commercial installation and repair work recently. Goettl’s technicians don’t just recommend the largest most powerful unit to customers, but instead perform careful calculations to make sure all units will perform at maximum efficiency and ultimately save customers operating costs. They also offer ongoing maintenance plans to customers.

Goettl Air Conditioning was founded back in 1939 by Adam and Gust Goettl and while times and management have changed at the company over the years, the values of treating customers like family have not changed. Ken Goodrich is currently the CEO of the company and he has also been instrumental in forging partnerships with several other companies including the Sunny Plumber. Goettl has given back to the community several times throughout the years including sponsoring a scholarship for former military members to receive training in HVAC certification, and also offering free repair services to underprivileged families on occasion.

One act of generosity was repairing the air conditioning system of an older Las Vegas couple during the hot summer months. Thanks to both Goettl and the Sunny Plumber, that couple was able to maintain a cool home and not have to worry about health problems related to extreme heat. Goettl also replaced the heating system of the Stephenson family this last Christmas. Their old heating system had been costing hundreds each month, and thanks to Goettl’s new zone-controlled heating they were able to cut their costs in half and save for other important expenses.

Maggie Gill Continues Her Successful Career Progression:

Maggie Gill is the illustrious and well-received CEO of Memorial Health in Savannah, Georgia. Recently, Maggie announced her decision to further progress her professional career, in the way of looking in new directions. She is exiting Memorial Health, as its CEO. The health care institution is located in Savannah, Georgia. The decision to part friendly ways with the predominant health care provider is that of Maggie’s own decision. She has provided a great deal of leadership, over the years, at the healthcare institution. Memorial, naturally will miss the leadership directives of Ms. Gill; however, wishes Maggie all the best. Ms. Gill’s outstanding career is the focus of this article:

Maggie joined Memorial University Medical Center (MUMC), in 2004. At the time, she assumed the role of Vice President of Finance and Managed Care. Her next role was that of MUMC’s Chief Operating Officer. This post was attained in 2005. Maggie was named President and CEO of Memorial Health in 2011.

Obviously, as evidenced from what Ms. Gill, oversees, anyone who follows after Ms. Gill has “big shoes” to fill.

Maggie Gill, during her tenure, has made vast improvements, according to various members of the Board. Naturally, her decision to pursue other professional interests has surprised Board members; however, Ms. Gill is more than pleased to stay on board, until, which time, the Board of MUMC finds a person to step into her current role. The transition, by way of Gill’s co-operation, is one that is smooth.

Prior to her leadership role, at MUMC, Gill spent five years, as the CFO of the Tenet South Florida Health System. Gill received Tenet’s “Outstanding CFO” award on three separate occasions.

Ms. Gill, worked at Palmetto General Hospital, located in Hialeah, Florida; the North Shore Medical Center, in Miami, Florida, and the Coral Gables Hospital—located in Coral Gables, Florida—while employed by the Tenet South Florida Health System.

Academically speaking, Maggie earned a Bachelor’s Degree—with Honors, from Florida State University. She earned an MBA Degree, with Honors, from Saint Leo University, in Florida. Gill has completed courses, at the Wharton School, in way of “Strategic Thinking,” and “Management.”
