Devos Family in Washington: Dick Devos Joins FAA Council

Dick Devos has been working in Washington alongside the FAA. He was appointed to the agency’s Management Advisory Council in September 2017. As the last member of the 13-strong council, his nomination was praised by those within the aviation industry. This includes praise from the CEO of Southwest airlines and the CEO of Gerald R. Ford International Airport.

 

So when did Dick Devos start dabbling in aviation? Well, he’s always had a passion for the industry. He’s an avid pilot, and he has co-founded a pilot training school with his wife Betsy Devos, the 11th US Secretary of Education. Previously to that, he had run for governor in Michigan, but he had not shown much political interest.

 

Now that he is working in Washington, people have begun to notice that the Devos’ work well together as a team and always support each other. The Devos Family Foundation has donated over $134 million to different causes, particularly in their home state. They have always been active with the Republican Party and continue to make contributions.

 

However, Devos was appointed to the FAA because he is well known for a legendary business move that he made to ensure the financial prosperity of his hometown. Throughout the 1990s, Dick Devos was famous for helping out businesses in Grand Rapids with ideas, plans, and funding. He worked with the committee called Grand Action to put a lot of those plans to work. This led to the formation of the Devos Place Convention Center, Devos Performance Hall, and Andel Arena.

 

They were effectively changing the face of the small town into something that was going to grow rapidly and be prosperous for everyone. Devos saw that the airport could help with that dream by bringing in business travelers. Being a business leader himself, Devos knew that a savvy airport was all that he needed to help build in his hometown. By 2018, the airport had grown so much that it needed a $45 million renovation, which was paid for by the airlines at the airport.

 

Devos had been working with Gerald R. Ford International Airport since 1999. At the time, he wanted to help the airport bring in new sales. He started talking to AirTran Airways CEO about the prospects available if the airline were to open up new terminals and destinations. AirTran agreed and opened up terminals to St. Louis, Denver, Orlando, and Vegas.

 

This led to a boom in the airport’s growth that only seemed to grow as they added on more terminals and extras. It’s this kind of experience and growth that the FAA would like to see for other airports. So Devos has been working with the council over a year. They meet once every quarter to discuss budgets, policies, regulations, future growth, and other ideas.

 

The FAA has made some considerable changes to policies in 2018, and it will likely continue throughout 2019 and 2020. The FAA has had trouble in the past as it tries to balance new waves of technology with security and stabilization of the market. It’s been a difficult road, but with Dick Devos and 12 other members from transportation authority backgrounds and airline executives, it will be hard not to make the right decisions for America’s historical industry.

Shervin Pishevar: Bearish View on the Economy

Shervin Pishevar is the founder of Investment company. He is a venture capitalist and one of his greatest investments was getting in early on Uber. He resigned from Investment company last December and until recently he has been keeping a low profile and limiting his public exposure. He recently lit twitter up with over fifty tweets spanning in a period of twenty-one hours. His tweets are how he sees things unfolding in the US economy over the next several years and it is a very pessimistic view.

Shervin Pishevar does not paint a rosy picture for the US economy in his recent tweets. He is predicting economic chaos to take hold in the financial markets and the overall global economy. He made a bold prediction stating that he believes the US stock market will fall by six thousand points. He also believes that there will be financial turmoil for the bond markets and the implications will be felt by the entire global economy. He is calling an end to the era of cheap money. He is also foreseeing an acceleration in the inflation rates and employment will worsen over time.

Shervin Pishevar also took the time to tweet about bitcoin and his predictions for the cryptocurrency. He believes that bitcoin is going to crash to $2,500 and then stabilize. Then within twenty-four months, bitcoin should start to slowly rise again and will end up being a good asset class. In the same tweet, he brings up gold and believes gold will regain its luster and advance in this time of economic turmoil.

Shervin Pishevar also pointed out how he believes US supremacy is starting to fall and how countries like China are beginning to surpass the United States, especially when it comes to building infrastructure. He tweeted how China was recently able to build a train station in as little as nine hours. He pointed out how the infrastructure in the US is in horrible shape. He goes on to blame the politicians and the US corporations for their extremely short-term views instead of focusing on long-term growth. He also mentioned how the FANG corporations hold too much power and are impeding the growth potential of many startup companies.

How One Edtech Company Included Teachers During Development In Order To Offer A Real-World Solution

There are a lot of edtech products out there, many of which teachers don’t actually want. Some developers take an approach of “build it and they will come” which really isn’t the case at all. Teachers need edtech products that actually fulfill a need of either theirs or their students. One of the companies getting this right is ClassDojo.

When someone in the administrative wing of a school district needs to make purchases for classrooms they look to what the teachers are saying. For this reason, if an edtech company expects to be successful they need to talk to teachers to find out what they need in the classroom. They want something that solves an actual problem and don’t care much about something that is mostly designed to just “wow” a user. When ClassDojo developed their application they had teachers involved throughout the process in order to use their feedback in a very constructive way. Whenever they are tweaking the app they also have teachers involved.

ClassDojo helps teachers by serving as a communication platform for the use of teachers, students, and parents. It’s all about creating a community that will help students learn best. In the past teachers often could only talk about the progress students were making when a parent-teacher conference was held. Now that communication can occur anytime, fulfilling a real-world classroom problem.

The San Francisco Business Times looked into what edtech products are being used in American classrooms. What they found was that about 90 percent of them were using ClassDojo when it comes to K-8 grades. Private capital investors see numbers like this and want to invest in this company. Their Series B round raised $21 million. The co-founders of ClassDojo, Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary, say that they are using the money to further develop this app and add in new features that teachers have suggested as good ideas. An example of this is making the app more useful outside the classroom so that parents can better support their children’s education in their homes.

Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum Talks About Knees

Robert thought he was taking care of his body. After all, regular exercise is what every health and medical professional says we should do. But as Robert got older, the strain of athletic living began to catch up with him. Regular activities like karate, basketball and softball became arduous. Pain developed in his knees and he couldn’t move like he once could. Robert had to face the facts. He had arthritis.

 

“The knee pain was tremendous, and you always have that constant ache… that throbbing.” Robert explained that at times the discomfort was so bad he was “popping Advil like M&Ms.”

 

It was clear that Robert was going to need surgery. He thought he was going to need a total knee replacement. But to his surprise, the doctors advised a new procedure that was minimally invasive: partial knee resurfacing.

 

Unlike a total knee replacement, partial knee resurfacing only treats the part of the knee that is diseased. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum explained that a knee basically has three parts. If only one part needs treatment, the other two can be left alone in order to help the patient recover more quickly.

 

He does this by resurfacing the end of the bone. By adding a couple of implants into the knee, Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum is able to restore the knee to working order without pulling anything out. Healthy bone and ligaments remain unaffected. Essentially nothing is really “replaced” in this procedure. It is only treated. By working the knee this way, doctors can now help overzealous athletes get better faster

 

Marc Beer Is Making An Impact On Women’s Health

Marc Beer is the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Renovia Inc. The company is a new startup that was recently launched in Boston, MA. Marc is also a co-founder of the organization.

 

The founders of Renovia are dedicated to women’s health, specifically to improve upon the lives of the millions of women who suffer the condition of pelvic floor disorders. Marc Beer successfully set out to raise over $42 million to fund the activities taken on by the new company. They have started to market the FDA approved leva Pelvic Digital Health System. It was developed as a muscle trainer to strengthen the pelvic floor. The system utilizes visualization technology to specifically target the area of the pelvis that maintains urinary continence.

 

Women are more likely to suffer from this condition as opposed to men. One study performed at the University of Insubria in Italy reported that the condition may affect approximately 12% to 50% of women. It was noted that it is difficult to get completely accurate data on the results for such a study. Women are sometimes embarrassed by the condition, and they do not always disclose their symptoms for that or other reasons. On behalf of the company, Marc Beer announced that they had finalized the closing for financing valued at $42.3 million. This announcement was made in late August of 2018.

 

Marc Beer and his efforts at Renovia displays his commitment to make a difference. As the CEO, Marc has shown how his leadership and his fortitude can make things happen. He achieved a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Miami. His major was in Business Administration. Throughout his career, Marc Beer has been an insightful entrepreneur. His direction at Renovia will hopefully make great strides for the treatment of pelvic floor disorder. For many of the women who suffer from this condition, their quality of life is disrupted and now there is hope.

 

The exercise trainer is available on a mobile app. It offers the patient a real-time experience with programmed coaching and trackable results. There are a series of sessions that can be performed twice a day and will take 5 minutes or less. The training can take place in the privacy of a woman’s own home. Learn more : https://renoviainc.com/leadership/

Kamil Idris: The Growing Problem of Piracy

Piracy is one of the most serious threats faced by intellectual property creators. Those who are in the movie, music, television, and software engineering industries are the most vulnerable against the internet pirates. Most countries around the world have strict laws against internet piracy, but they lack the determination and passion for implementing it. The United States is one of those countries which are implementing strict laws against internet pirates, apprehending both the uploader and the downloader of stolen intellectual properties. Kamil Idris, one of the advocates of intellectual property protection, states that the governments of the world should work together to put an end in the growing industry of internet piracy.

Kamil Idris has been saying that intellectual properties are important in the development of a state, and if it is constantly being stolen, it would have a negative impact for the creators and the countries they live in. For small software program creators, stealing their intellectual properties through piracy would render their hard work as nonsense because the pirates would never allow him to earn a single buck for the thing that he dedicated his time and energy on. Kamil Idris stated that these people should be protected from the pirates and they should be compensated for the things that they have created or developed.

 

Kamil Idris has also warned about the economic result of internet piracy. Because of the prevalence of internet pirates today, most people are turning onto the internet to download movies, songs, and TV shows. They wanted to look for a free download link and take these intellectual properties for themselves without paying those who have worked hard to produce it. Kamil Idris believes that education is one of the most important weapons that the intellectual property creators could use. They should start by informing the public about the disadvantages of downloading a pirated content and encourage the people to support them by buying their intellectual properties through legitimate means.

Kamil Idris is still hoping that the world would come up with a solution regarding piracy, and he also wishes for the majority of the population to stop patronizing pirated products.
