Eric Lefkosfsky; The Man with a Plan Towards Affordable Cancer Treatment

It is apparently clear from all the data available that health cost has been on an upward trajectory. There are many reasons put forward to justify this, and cancer has been on the top. Some of these ideas attributed to the aged population that is often getting sick and having terminal diseases and conditions that need long-term care. A good example, diabetes, back, neck and joint pains, general poor health among many others.

Apart from the aging population, the drugs have also become expensive with time. With the current trends where patients are spending less in hospitals, the pharmaceuticals have tried to offset the deficient made from fewer patients in hospitals by selling drugs to patients directly at a higher cost. It Has also contributed to the rising costs.

However, a philanthropist and entrepreneur, Erick Lefkofsky, the co-founder of the Tempus as come up with a solution to dealing with the rising cost of cancer treatment. Tempus is a technology company that is working towards building the world’s most extensive library and database for molecular and clinical data for the cancer epidemic. They are also coming up with an operating system that will make the data accessible by medics so it can be useful in the fight against cancer.

The system is on course, developed by a group of engineers and medical professions that will help in making the system more interactive and self-learning of input data. It will also be able to provide critical information and real-time data to the physician to be able to make a data-driven decision toward the treatment of cancers around the world. In his vision, Eric Lefkofsky envisioned that there would be easy for those suffering to get relief with better and quality health care within their reach cost-effectively.

It Will help reduce the cost of cancer treatment since the patient does not have to incur expenses traveling around for consultations, they will have data readily available at their health centers. It Will also cut costs and improve the research being carried on towards a common goal of finding the best therapy or cure to specific cancers that are affecting people.

The Art of Winemaking: Jackson Family Wines Collection

Julia JacksonJackson Family Wines Collection has come a long way over the decades. It was once a small family business, but as of today, JFWC is an international powerhouse. It produces some of the most diverse tasting wines on earth. The company has winery locations in the United States, France, Italy, South Africa and Chile. Its 583-acre site in Oregon produces some of the best Pinot Noir wines. Julia Jackson, spokesperson and representative of the company, has kind of fallen into the business by accident. She never really was a wine connoisseur while growing up as a very young adult, but she would soon develop feelings for the winemaking process.Julia Jackson just so happens to be the daughter of company’s founder. Jess Jackson and his wife Barbara Banke made it possible to raise a family of children while evolving as a company.Julia Jackson

Julia and her siblings would have to pick grapes in the hot Pacific Northwest’s heat, but this would instill the strong ambition that they posses to this very day. Julia has spent a lot of time working at the company’s many wineries and this is where she would develop strong feeling for the culture. By spending so much time in France, she became fluent in the French language, and she’d go on to teach a sixth-grade French Class. On top of that, Julia has modeled as well as attended Stanford University and Scripps College.Seeds of Empowerment is her nonprofit organization, and it’s all about “girl power.” This organization celebrates the empowerment of women on a daily basis. Jackson Family Wines Collection produces Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and other fine wines. One of its great tasting beverages is the Barbara’s Clone 667 Pinot Noir. The art of winemaking for an economical class is fully covered, but who knows what the Jackson family will venture into next.

A Serial Entrepreneur – Chris Burch

The technological and the fashion industry have undergone several changes in the recent years. One fascinating thing is that both industries have grown together. Below is a glimpse of the past, the present and the future of the industries.

 

 

 Past

 

 

In around 1970s, the boom box brought much excitement as it could allow the user to carry around the favorite stations and tunes. With two cassette decks, one of the sides played music while the other used to record. In the 1990s, one could buy a music experience from a Walkman. Ten years later, this experience became smaller with the invention of the iPod. Technology grows with what one deems fashionable.

 

 

Present

 

 

Currently, the synthesis of fashion and technology is happening. The fashion designers glee in creating what gives returns, and they see such possibility with technology. Such a use brings a standard in functionality and innovation.

 

 

Future

 

 

Various fashions thrive through technology in a way to protect people. For instance, it may not be very fashionable to put on a bike protection. Fashionable airbags for cyclists were introduced. When the airbag pops out of the neck, it protects one’s head from an impact. When it is not opened, one gets a better visibility of the surrounding area, which is a negative side of wearing a helmet.

 

 

Technology and Fashion Relationship

 

 

Most of the times, technology depends on fashion to gain popularity. For instance, wearing glasses was little accepted until recently. Fashion shows wake people up to the newest trends and styles. This shows that any advance in technology needs to benefit from the fashion world.
