OSI group is the leading privately owned food production company in the world. Currently, they have productions firms in every continent in the world and have dominated the food market in almost every country. OSI Industries specializes in selling value added proteins to food service and retail brands. They have a unique ability to cater for the needs of their clients. This is one of the qualities that have enabled them to penetrate markets in different continents.

In expanding their markets, OSI Industries banked on the locals. Instead of importing employees from head office, they employ the locals. This gives the company an approachable face since locals are able to identify with the company’s representatives. This is a big part of the reason why OSI has had an easy time moving to new markets and overtaking already existing companies. It is also a way for OSI groups to positively impact the local economy.

Apart from setting up their own firms, OSI expands through acquisitions. In the recent past, they acquired Baho Foods and Tyson food plant. When they acquired these firms, OSI group did not do away with the management or the food products they already had. Instead, they incorporated the firms’ products into their product line. This was is a big advantage to OSI. Apart from gaining a new market, their product line grew.

The biggest achievement of OSI in expanding and becoming a world leader is that they have managed to hold on to their basics. Right from its foundation, OSI Industries main goal has been to take care of its customers’ needs. Their presence in different markets across the globe means that they have to adjust according to the needs of every market. They have been able to take care of each market’s need by taking advantage of local employees. They have been able to speak the market’s language, put the market’s needs first and incorporate the local culture in their marketing schemes.

OSI Industries presence is felt in every continent in the world. However, their successful expansion is not what makes them a people’s favorite. It’s their ability to maintain quality productions in every firm they own across the globe. The fact that their clients in Africa are able to get the same quality as their clients in the UK has made them a people’s favorite. This is the basis of their expansion. Since people love their products, penetrating new markets is easy. Their reputation precedes them.

NGP VAN Brings Cutting Edge Technology to Political Canvassing Operations

Posted by omeditors | Posted in NGP VAN, Technology | Posted on 19-04-2018

Canvassing is a critical component of any political campaign. Canvassing’s purpose is to acquaint the voting community with persons running for political office, and it involves going door-to-door to get the message out or making cold calls to those on the voter rolls. Years ago, according to Haley Thompson in her April 16, 2018, article in Chronicle of the Week, there were many voters in the voting middle identified as voters who, depending on the candidate, would switch their votes to one or the other political party. There was little allegiance to a particular party. That is no longer the case according to Thompson who indicated only 39% of voters are in the political middle.

The current political climate is so deeply partisan that the chance of swaying a voter with an entrenched ideology is about 1:800 according to a 2017 study by two UC Berkeley professors. In the study, the two professors contacted candidates two months prior to an election, and only one out of 800 participants switched from one candidate to another, a stat provided by Thompson in her recent article. The article also detailed that the combined dollars spent by candidates running for federal office during the 2016 campaign were $6.4 billion.

With the rising costs associated with running a political campaign, politicians need to run “smarter” campaigns. A company answering that clarion call is NGP VAN, a company that develops digitized applications to maximize canvassing operations. NGP VAN prides itself on providing digital “campaign and organizing tools for candidates.” Instead of trying to sway the opinions of the ideological voter, the focus of any political campaign should be getting voters to the polls, and NGP VAN has developed “digital tools” to alleviate some of the cost and stress associated with political canvassing.

MiniVAN, developed by NGP VAN, is an app that can run on iOS or Android devices that helps campaigns in two ways. All the information the canvasser needs including routes, talking points, and voter contact information is accessible through the app. Additionally, the NGP VAN MiniVAN app has a feature called Distributed Canvassing that effortlessly creates lists and maps for canvassers.

Stansberry Research Offers Insight into Commodity Markets

Posted by omeditors | Posted in Online Publisher | Posted on 18-04-2018

Having current knowledge about what is going on in the world and financial markets can give you a competitive advantage when it comes to investing in the markets. One of the best ways to stay current with what is going on in the world is to read about current events. One organization that has continued to provide readers with great insight and analysis is Stansberry Research.

Today, Stansberry Research is one of the leading online publishers of information and articles about a variety of subjects. The organization will often focus on the investment industry as well as global politics. This includes articles that are well-researched and include some very interesting insight. Overall, Stansberry Research is considered one of the top sources for current information and analysis. Recently, Stansberry Research published and article that discussed investing in commodities (Glassdoor).

Investing in commodities has been a very common form of investments for a long period of time. When you invest in a commodity, you typically will be investing in the value of an underlying product including oil, precious metals, corn, coffee beans, or a variety of other items that are traded on public markets. While there are plenty of advantages that can come with this type of investing there are some risks that need to be considered as well.

Similar to other types of investments, commodities trade based on supply and demand. For example, when the price of a stock goes up, it is normally due to more people wanting to own it. While the price of commodities is similar to this, there is more manipulation that can take place to control the price of the underlying commodity, refer to Stansberry Research.

For example, if the producer of oil sees that the price of oil is beginning the decline, the producers will have the ability to start to slow production. This will then decrease supply over time and will then lead to an increase in price. While this can provide risk to investors, it can also provide opportunities to those that are able to foresee these changes in price and are able to react to the changes.

 

Dr. Jorge Moll Talks About Healthcare And Technology Intersecting

Posted by omeditors | Posted in Healthcare and Technology | Posted on 17-04-2018

Dr. Jorge Moll is a distinguished scientist who studies the brain. He earned his neurological medicine degree from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in 1997. In 2003 he graduated from The University of Sao Paulo with his Ph.D. in experimental physiopathology. He now operates his own outfit called the D’Or Institute for Research and Education which is located in Rio de Janeiro.

Dr. Jorge Moll is the president-director of this firm and also has a seat on its governing board. He heads its research and education departments including both the Neuroinformatics Workgroup and the Cognitive Neuroscience Unit.

In an interview he conducted in December 2017, Dr. Jorge Moll said that he grew up wanting to help people who have mental conditions which prevent them from enjoying the life they want to lead. He said he wanted to develop an organization which performed world-class research and did educational outreach to his fellow Brazilian citizens. He says his workdays are mostly spent in meetings where he talks with his peers, students, and associates. He also works with entrepreneurs in other organizations in order to have his business partner with organizations to complete his company’s objectives.

One modern topic which is very interesting to Dr. Jorge Moll is artificial intelligence. He says that he is excited about how machines and brains will likely one day in the future be able to work closely with one another. He is also very interested in both regenerative medicine and gene therapy which is finding increasingly effective ways of treating diseases in far better ways than conventional methods have done. Dr. Jorge Moll says that he keeps close tabs on both the field of healthcare and that of technology and increasingly sees them merging together to improve people’s lives.

If he could give any advice to his younger self, Dr. Jorge Moll says that he would tell himself to not be afraid to give up on ideas that aren’t panning out. It is best to either run with a great idea or, if the idea really isn’t so great, quickly abandon it and move on to something else.

Sheldon Lavin is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of a leading company in the supply of protein products globally, OSI Group. The firm currently prides on having more than 50 facilities in about 17 countries in the world. OSI has fostered good relationships with their over 20,000 employees whom the company treats as a family beyond their work relations. The company has a culture where both juniors and seniors refer to each other by their first name as opposed to the norm where a senior would have a title, for example, Sir or Boss. This culture has strengthened the mutual respect between seniors and juniors and has ensured there is sustainability in productivity hence the success of the multi-billion company.

Before OSI Group, Sheldon Lavin was in the financial and accounting industry where he owned a financial consulting firm. He was approached to fund Otto & Sons the then OSI Group and this sparked his interest in the food industry. The company was then owned by two sons who needed funds to establish a meat processing branch that would become the Midwest supplier of hamburgers to McDonald’s Corporation. After the retirement of their father from the company, Sheldon was named partner to the company. This was a significant move for the global entity since it strengthened relations between OSI and McDonald’s firm. Later, the hard-working entrepreneur gained 100% voting control and ascended to the position of the president and chairman of OSI industries.

Under the stewardship of Sheldon Lavin, OSI Group established branches in South America, Taiwan, North America and Europe. Today the co-operation has expanded to Australia, India, Japan, South Africa, and the Philippines. Each of these branches operates according to the regulations, taste, and culture of the people they serve. This tradition has enabled the private entity to dominate the market of supplying protein products as a result of continued good relations between OSI and the respective countries. The global company has been a recipient of several awards for their outstanding dedication and commitment to providing better services in the food industry. For example, the British Safety Council awarded OSI industries the 2016 Globe of Honour for creating jobs and establishing their presence globally.

Sahm Adrangi Dissects Kodak’s Latest Business Practice

In the world of investing, it can be difficult to know when to invest and when not to invest. It is even more difficult to figure out which companies are safe to invest in and which ones are on the verge of collapse. Sahm Adrangi is out to help other investors through his regular reports at Kerrisdale Capital. Sahm Adrangi’s firm focuses on investments and management services and has been extremely successful in a rather short period of time. This has earned Sahm a reputable position in the market and his advice is often followed by other investors.

The latest company that has gone under fire by Sahm Adrangi is Kodak. As far as Sahm is concerned, Kodak has not managed to stay up to date with advancing technology as well as proper business practices. Sahm Adrangi has plainly stated that all investors should be cautious before deciding to bet on Kodak’s latest business exploits, which are highly suspicious to Sahm as well. Within a matter of a day or two, Kodak’s share prices rose hundreds of millions of dollars, amounting to an increase of nearly 200 percent. This is mostly due to the fact that they recently went into business with a cryptocurrency group. While there were some investors to hop on this apparent opportunity, Sahm is all but certain that this sudden increase will be short-lived and the company will soon crumble despite being a former heavyweight in their particular market. As most people are aware, cryptocurrency has been very unstable since becoming popular and that has not changed.

Another concern for Sahm is the partners that Kodak is currently making with their latest deals, all of which are questionable and have mixed backgrounds. To add even more fuel to the fire, Kodak wasn’t able to gain much attention despite their massive increase in company stock prices, which means they will still be in the same place they were near 6 years ago when they filed a chapter 11.

Lawrence Bender’s Hollywood Achievements

0

Posted by omeditors | Posted in Entertainment | Posted on 13-04-2018

Tags: , , ,

Lawrence Bender is by far one of the best film producers in the film industry. At a young age, Lawrence Bender was fascinated with dancing and aspired to do it for a living. Unfortunately, an injury sidelined him. This injury acted as a gateway into Hollywood. The producer grew up in The Bronx, New York City, New York to a Jewish family. While in high school, he wanted to become a civil engineer because his grandfather did it and because he heard that there were good jobs in that industry. In 1979, Bender graduated from the University of Maine with a degree in civil engineering.

If I mention some of Bender’s best works, you’ll probably recognize the names of them. Some of these films include Good Will Hunting, Pulp Fiction, and An Inconvenient Truth. One of my favorite movies produced by Bender would have to be Good Will Hunting. In the movie, Will Hunting faces a lot of challenges. He has a troubled past with abusive parents and is an orphan. Fortunately, Will has very good mathematical skills. These mathematics skills were brought to the attention by the university when Will solved a difficult problem while working one night as a janitor. Throughout the movie, Will continues to face multiple challenges with his girlfriend, Skylar, and life in general. Overall, how he overcomes these challenges is the reason why I love the movie so much.

One documentary that Bender produced that I enjoyed a lot was An Inconvenient Truth. In this documentary, Al Gore explains the disastrous effects that climate change is having on the environment. He shows multiple graphs of the event, highlighting how humans are accelerating global warming worldwide. I love this film because it highlights how important this issue actually is.

Over the years, Lawrence Bender has received multiple awards. He won the Best Motion Picture Award for both Inglourious Basterds in 2009 and Pulp Fiction in 1994. He also won the Independent Spirit Award in for Pulp Fiction and has gotten multiple nominees. Overall, Lawrence Bender is a terrific film producer who I hope keeps putting out great films.
