Life Line Screening’s Easy, Quick And Pain-free Tests Can Save Your Life

The for-profit healthcare industry in the United States has healthcare all backwards. There is a profit motive for healthcare providers to wait until you are sick in order to treat you. Once you are sick, you are incredibly motivated to find health again and will pay just about anything to get your health back. Most healthcare providers take advantage of the situation.

That’s why it warms my heart to read about Life Line Screening. These medical professionals have it all right. They allow you to come in for multiple health screenings per year. These screenings use a variety of technological innovations to identify any health conditions that may arise in the near future. It can catch blocked arteries, damaged livers, heart disease, stroke and other medical conditions before they happen.

This allows patients to change their lifestyle in order to avoid calamity. Life Line Screening can help give you resources in order to change your lifestyle to save your life in the face of an impending medical condition. These lifestyle changes may include changing your diet, quitting smoking or quitting drinking. Although there are some conditions that are unavoidable despite lifestyle changes.

These conditions, including arterial blockages and aneurysms, can still be detected in their earliest stages. This can allow you to receive life-saving surgeries or other medical treatments that can have you avoiding a heart attack or stroke. Life Line Screening is incredibly important for anybody at high risk for certain health conditions or anybody in advanced age.

Highland Capital CEO Jim Dondero Sees A Change Coming for the Stock Market

Jim Dondero has a lot of experience in credit markets. Dondero has been involved in the finance industry for more than 30 years. Jim is the current president of Highland Capital Management. Dallas-based Highland Capital Management is one of the most experienced global credit managers in the industry. The company has more than $16 billion in assets under management. Dondero is known as one of the pioneers of the Collateralized Loan Obligation (CLO). In 1996, Jim started on of the first non-bank CLOs. Dondero and founding partner, Mark Okada both have excellent track records in the financial industry. Before starting Highland Capital Management, Dondero managed assets for American Express and Protective Life’s GIC subsidiary. Jim is the Chairman of the Board for CCS Medical and Cornerstone Healthcare. He is also a member of the board of MGM Studios and American Banknote.

Donald Trump’s election impacted the stock market. Before the election, people thought the market would crash, but the opposite happened. Stocks are up by more than 14 percent in 2017, and some investors think the bull market will continue. But Jim Dondero sees a change coming in the stock market. The change will happen in 2017, according to Dondero. Hedge fund managers are under a lot of pressure to produce better returns. Hedge funds only produced average returns of three percent in 2016. That percentage has to increase in 2017, according to Dondero. Highland Capital’s returns were much higher than the average in 2016.

Dondero thinks emerging market investing is important, and that strategy will help increase returns in 2017. But he also thinks the stock market will turn into a bear market at the same time. Once the Federal Reserve raises interest rates, the stock market will react. So many investors are moving away from stocks that are not considered value stocks, and investing in India, Brazil, Argentina, and South Africa. Thanks to offices in Sao Paulo, Singapore, Seoul and New York, Dondero can react quickly to opportunities in emerging markets. But Dondero still believes in healthcare, energy and Tech companies in 2017. Most of Highland Capital’s money is invested in those sectors of the global economy.

Launched in 2014, the Swiss Startup Factory has been working with entrepreneurs by offering them support to establish their businesses. When he launched the incubation facility, he came from banking, where he resigned to venture into entrepreneurship. He did not imagine the facility would grow to become the best incubator in the country, but just two years later, it became the biggest.

He is optimistic about the growth of the company and is hoping to see more successful companies in the market that went through the incubation system.

 

Law and taxes

Young entrepreneurs often lack understanding beyond the product they are dealing with. They do not factor in some things like taxation and law that could possibly hinder their progress. While the idea could be perfect, lack of skills and know how about law and taxation could bring the business down, should there be a contravention of any section of law. This is why the Swiss Startup Factory offers support to entrepreneurs to ensure they understand about law and the impact it could have to the progress of the business.

 

Branding

Design and presentation is something that matters a lot in business. How the product is presented and designed determines the first impression that will be created and whether it will get as many sales as required. Through the Swiss Startup Factory, the ideas entrepreneurs present are shaped into products through creative design and presentation.

End Citizens United PAC Entry into US Politics

In 2010, the US Supreme Court passed a ruling for Citizens United thereby recognizing corporations as people. This decision created room for billionaires and those with special interests to pour unlimited amounts of money in America’s elections on endcitizensunited.org. This has resulted in a loss of accountability and transparency in the electoral process according to the opponents of this ruling.

End Citizens United PAC was launched in August 2015. The group was founded by three former Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee online fundraising specialists. The team’s primary goal is to overturn the 2010’s Supreme Court ruling through a constitutional amendment.

Many people have already signed the movement’s petition requesting passing of such legislation by the Congress. “Ready for Hillary” accepted to rent out its email list to the group to recruit potential supporters on endcitizensunited.org. This partnership also made it easy for the group to get more funds from donors.

End Citizens United supports Democrats because it fights against the Citizen United. Republicans in Congress have been opposing the overturning of this ruling. This decision continues despite some Republicans and Independent voters accepting that undisclosed political spending is dangerous in a democracy. On August 2015, End Citizen United endorsed 11 Democratic candidates.

On July 2016, End Citizen United PAC announced its support for Hillary Clinton. Also, Clinton would get a chance to appoint a Supreme Court justice in support of the legal action.

When accepting the endorsement on endcitizensunited.org, Clinton said she had been opposing this ruling from her early days of the campaign. She also said she would appoint justices to the Supreme Court who understands that the 2010 ruling is a threat to democracy. That was good news to End Citizen United PAC.

She also said she would fight for reforms in America’s campaign finance system. She would ensure more disclosure requirements. These measures would offer a fair ground for people who are not wealthy and well connected to compete fairly in elections.

Unlike other PACs, End Citizen United is engaging in active politics by getting the right people elected. The group supports candidates who stand against Citizen United and those under attack from Koch Brothers and similar dark-money entities.

Rick Hasen, a campaign finance control expert and University of California-Irvine School of Law’s Professor of law and political science says that groups like End Citizen United are excellent in raising awareness of the rulings of the Supreme Court thereby forcing them not to make wrong decisions.

In addition, the group’s access to around US$30 million and its decision to actively participate in politics enables it to influence the House race significantly. As a result, its demands are more likely to be considered than those of most of the other PACs.
