The Success of Dr. Jennifer Walden in Manhattan and Austin

Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

Dr. Jennifer Walden has become one of the most successful surgeons in the United States. She is one of the top female plastic surgeons in Texas, and she has been proving that women have a voice in the surgery field even though she is a minority.

There are not a lot of women that are taking on the role of a plastic surgeon. This is what makes Dr. Jennifer Walden unique, but it also shows that she is someone that has been able to build a successful practice regardless of the odds that were against her.

What many people may find that is highly impressive about Dr. Walden is the fact that she started a successful practice twice. The first time Dr. Jennifer Walden Reviews that she did this was in Manhattan. This is where she initially started her business. As time progressed Dr. Walden would become a very successful plastic surgeon in Manhattan that would go on to co-author books and win awards for her expertise in the area of cosmetic surgery.

As time went on Dr. Jennifer Walden would find that there was a desire to connect with her family from her native city of Austin, Texas. Click here to know more.

This desire to connect with her family gave Dr. Walden a chance to move back to Texas and start a practice in this area.  Dr. Walden on YouTube.

She has continued a successful track record with a whole new practice that continues to provide patients with rhinoplasty and breast augmentation services. These are two of the most popular procedures that her clients have, but that is only a portion of what Dr. Jennifer Walden does. She puts a lot of emphasis on finding the right technology that makes many of her procedures less invasive. She is a fan of implementing the newest technology in cosmetic surgery.

Human Rights and the Frontera Fund of Lacey and Larkin

Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

Groups that advocate for civil rights, human rights, and migrant rights are abundant today. They all have their reasons for being in that field. Most people consider them to be created for good reasons. Few people consider that there could be a self-serving reason for creating them. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were accused of creating the Frontera Fund to help clear their name after being named as enablers of human traffickers. The story is interesting.

It all started where Backpage.com, which the two were the founders of. Backpage.com had been accused of enabling sex workers to panhandle children in the sex trade. They were charged with this role and had the fallout of the whole drama, fall at their feet. After all of that failed to go through, the two sued the police for all of that and won. That money was used to create the Frontera Fund to help people that need legal assistance during human rights cases.

The implications were that they should have intervened and stopped the sex workers from being able to get through the Backpage.com site. Instead, the investigation found that the posting site was actually giving tips on how to post phone numbers in a way to beat the system and allow a phone number to be listed. During the investigation, all of that had occurred. That was more than suspicious. Read more: Phoenix New Time and Village Voice Media | Wikipedia

The two had lawyers which argued that they were simply trying to enforce the right speak freely online and protect that right. The victim’s lawyers claimed that Larkin and Lacey should have stopped the ability to post any adult ads to further protect the victims.

The prosecution was basically alleging that the two had been enablers of the crime and that by default, were just as guilty of the crime as the “Johns.” Outraged, the two did not even go to the hearing until they were forced by court order to attend the hearings. Obviously, this has been a big problem and quite a scene for all of the parties involved.

Still, through all of this, Lacey and Larkin both funded a human rights company that help those that need legal representation. That group is their Frontera Fund. It will be quite a ride until this whole case is resolved and everyone feels that justice has been served. The victims especially feel a need for this justice, considering they all have expressed that they lost their childhoods to the sex crimes committed on Backpage.com against them as children.

Human rights and any right is a fundamental part of being in a free country. Everyone should have theirs enforced. The problem is an age-old question. “Where do your rights end and mine begin?” It is always analyzed as being a balancing act which requires that nobody has more than the other.

That seems like a great place to start the process of both healing and enforcing human rights for both groups. Then perhaps the Frontera Fund will be better regarded by the people that feel that the entire project is a joke.

Why is Sujit Choudry in Kiev?

Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

World renowned constitutional law expert, Sujit Choudry attended a critical international workshop in Kiev. The workshop was to discuss struggles with constitutional instability in the Ukraine. The Ukraine has a semi-presidential system of government.

On July 10, 2017, several constitutional law scholars convened to assess and discuss strategies to help stabilize the fledgling democracy in Ukraine. Since the fall of communism more than 20 years ago, the country has faced many struggles as it worked to function as a democratic government. Ukraine’s Center for Policy and Legal Reform, the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, or International IDEA hosted the think tank. One of the most qualified people in the world for this situation is Sujit Choudry.

The democracy in Ukraine has been extremely unstable for many reasons. For a strong democracy, a strong separation of powers is needed. In addition, the electoral system is not designed well enough to provide the necessary checks and balances that facilitate a sustainable constitution. Even within the executive branch there is insufficient separation of powers between the president and the prime minister. Strategies to improve the situation were recommended. Constitutional law experts continue to monitor this situation.

The Center for Constitutional Transitions, founded by Sujit Choudhry, strives to generate and mobilize information that supports the constitution building process. Sujit Choudhry’s organization has brought more than 50 experts to assist more than 25 countries around the world with their constitution building activities. Additional article to read on this link.

Sujit Choudry is a Rhodes Scholar with law degrees from Harvard, Toronto and Oxford. He is the I. Michael Heyman Professor of Law at the University of California at Berkeley School of Law. His unique blend of in-depth field experience and wide-ranging research makes him an ideal advisor to the process of constitution building.

Eric Lefkofksy and Data-Enabled Medicine Change Cancer Treatment

Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

In the Tech News Spy article, “Tempus, Eric Lefkofsky, and the Rise of Data-Enabled Precision Medicine” Heidi Harris discusses the advances in cancer treatment made by Lefkofksy’s company, Tempus.

The National Cancer Institute shows that nearly 14.5 million U.S. citizens were diagnosed with cancer in 2014 and they predict the number to grow to over 19 million by 2024. Yet, cancer patients have traditionally found that despite the technological improvement in other industries, the healthcare industry was lacking in providing digital technology and data collection to healthcare providers.

Tempus seeks to change that. The company seeks to create a paradigm shift in the way cancer is analyzed by medical professionals. Tempus created software to analyze physician notes and free text fields in order to obtain and analyze the data. By including optical character recognition and natural language processing, the software is able to transform the notes into usable data that is structured to revamp cancer treatment and care and learn more about Eric Lefkofksy.

Tempus will also use genomic information. By using human genome sequencing the company will be able to analyze the individual’s molecular information in order to individualize treatment. Tempus allows physicians and specialists to understand their patients at a molecular level by providing deep analytics of molecular and clinical data to provide personalized treatment options and more information click here.

The validation for specialists is created through a new cell-culture technology. It provides evaluation of therapies in synthetic and animal models with detailed reporting so the doctors can have actionable insights into the patient’s treatment. The information is constantly updated and is always available providing doctors with an immediate insight and deeper understanding of what medicines work with different types of molecular compositions

This data-enabled medicine provides more precision through technologies such as the Tempus platform. It will allow the physicians to accurately match cancer patients with the appropriate and most effective treatment.

Lefkosky began Tempus because of his personal experience. He discovered the lack of data provided to specialists when his wife was seeking cancer treatment and he created the company to resolve that lack.

Eric Lefkofksy is also serial entrepreneur. He started various companies like Groupon, Echo Global Logistics, InnerWorkings, and Uptake. He currently lives in Chicago with his wife, Elizabeth.

Why Betsy DeVos Approaches Life in a Different Way

Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

It is a new world. In this age and time, people in high places are adopting ways of helping society through philanthropy. Wealthy individuals are deviating from their selfish tendencies and embracing trends that are meant to help society as a whole. One of the richest billionaires in town that we can relate to is Betsy DeVos. Betsy is not only an established entrepreneur but also a full-time reformer as well as a seasonal politician. Her humane ways have been the means through which the wife of Dick DeVos has been able to bring major transformations in communities across the United States. Born from one of the wealthiest families in the world, Betsy has had all handed to her on a silver platter. However, Betsy DeVos has also found a way of earning her riches through hard work. Visit Betsy’s profile page on Facebook.

The alumni of the Holland Christian High School, since her formative years, have had a passion for foreseeing that the education sector in America gets transformed. By her wealth, power, and influence, all if not of most of Betsy’s dreams have manifested in real time. As a strong Christian, Betsy has always found cracks in the education system of the United States of America. To this end, she and her husband Dick have joined hands and formed The Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation, an organization that has categorically provided institutions of learning with financial aid. Through philanthropy, Betsy has been mainly supportive of children coming from low-income families. Mrs. DeVos has been passionate about improving art and culture, education in general, the charter system, as well as leadership.

Betsy’s will to help others has been as a result of past events when she once witnessed parents from low-income families struggling just to give their children the opportunity to go to school. Touched from within, Betsy has struggled to realize the change in the education sector. Thanks to Betsy’s efforts, students can now learn beyond their zip codes. Above all, Betsy DeVos has strongly advocated for the charter system to get introduced in institutions of learning, and her husband’s West Michigan Aviation Academy is a testament to the same. Betsy’s political ambitions have not gone unnoticed. In the past, she offered her support to her husband Dick when he wanted to become governor. Betsy DeVos has also contributed generously to political causes, especially if they directly affect the Republican Party. At age 59, Betsy is the 11th Secretary of Education, a role given to her by President Donald Trump. Her appointment as the new secretary of education comes at a time when extreme reforms in the sector are needed. In my view, it is my belief that Betsy is the right person for the job.
