Newswise just published an article on a New Jersey real estate developer’s decision to support cancer research. Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey has recently announced the creation of a new endowed chair in Genomic Science named for Omar Boraie, a New Brunswick real estate developer who made a $1.5 million contribution to establish the professorship at Rutgers. The new endowed chair is part of a plan by the university to establish 18 such positions at the institute, with an anonymous donor matching each $1.5 million contribution. Rutgers University Magazine hopes to raise $3 million in total to fund each of the 18 chairs.
The Cancer Institute at Rutgers, the only comprehensive cancer center in New Jersey, is taking genomic sequencing a step further. While there are many universities and research centers studying sequencing for research purposes, Rutgers is one of the first facilities to use it to provide customized treatment to cancer patients. Genomic sequencing has helped to improve the prospects of survival for rare cancers and cancers with high mortality rates. It has also been of great benefit to those who have not responded to other treatment modalities.
These advancements now make it possible for physicians to subdivide cancers into groups based on genetic differences between patients in order to provide a targeted treatment. This approach is vastly improving outcomes in cases that would have been virtually impossible to treat in the past.
According to Mr. Boraie, his motivation for making the donation was the realization that if the precision approach being pioneered at Rutgers were available to all cancer patients, countless lives would be saved. Boraie, who is trained as a chemist and has had a lifelong interest in cancer research, said that just as the anonymous donor who is matching the $1.5 million donations inspired him, he hopes that others will be inspired by his contribution to support the research at the Rutgers Cancer Institute.
Anthony ‘Tony’ Petrello is a mathematician, attorney and the highest paid CEO in the United States. His is a uniquely American success story. Born and raised in a working class neighborhood in Newark, New Jersey, he has worked and studied hard and has earned a bachelors degree and a masters degree in math from Yale and a juris doctor from Harvard Law School. He has also spent 5 years working at a prestigious New York law firm and is currently the CEO and chairman of the board of the largest land-based oil and gas drilling company in the world.

A litigator represents either side in a civil court case and oversees all phases of the process for their clients. The first step in the litigation process is a Writ of Summons and a Statement of Claim. These and other documents must be filed to initiate the formal legal process. After each party has had his/her chance to express his/her opinion and views in writing, the process of discovery begins. This is where both sides collect information to present in trial. The trial is held in front of a judge and possibly a jury. Finally, the judge or jury makes a legally binding decision.
A litigator must have a Bachelor’s degree in English, history, economics, government, or a subject closely related to the type of law to be practice. A litigator must pass the Law School Admission Test and then earn a Juris Doctor degree. After earning the degree, a litigator must pass the bar exam. Once the bar exam has been passed, the litigator can begin practicing law.
Karl Heideck, from Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, is a perfect example of a litigator. He graduated from Swarthmore College with a Bachelors of Arts in English Language and Literature/Letters. Karl Heideck continued his education at Temple University-Beasley School of Law where he received his Juris Doctor degree in law.
Karl Heideck has been licensed for seven years. Heideck began his career in 2010 as a Project Attorney at Pepper Hamilton LLP where he specialized in fact investigation, trial, and discovery. In April of 2015, Karl Heideck accepted a job as a Contract Attorney at Hire Counsel. He has experience in litigation, compliance, risk management, corporate law, legal research, legal writing, commercial litigation, and employment law.
Mike Baur has been in the world of entrepreneurship for barely four years and the progress he has made with the Swiss Startup Factory is pretty notable. 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.
To touch the entrepreneurs and to help them manage their ideas, Mike Baur offers a three months incubation program that is managed by highly experienced individuals. Offering support to young entrepreneurs offers Mike Baur the satisfaction he has for many years sought to achieve. His effort has helped to raise the bar for many businesses and he is looking to expand the reach of the Swiss Startup Factory so more can also benefit to launch their ideas after the three months incubation. 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.
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.

Sometimes it seems like lip balm is boring. When you were a kid you got to wear lip balm that tasted as sweet as a slice of your favorite cake on your birthday. There were even lip balms that reminded you of your favorite soft drink. Now that you’re an adult lip balm can feel like a rather boring affair. These days you might find yourself running over to the gas station to get a medicated tube of chapstick that is white and smells generic. Fortunately for you things do not have to be this way anymore.
Thanks to the emerging skincare brand Evolution of Smooth you can indulge in a lip care product that is more mature than lip balm that tastes like ice cream but that is playful enough that it is fun for you to use. What sets Evolution of Smooth apart from other lip balm brands is the time that it has put into designing its product. The spherical shape of the lip balm is unusual but it is also very utilitarian. The founders of the company that make the product took the time to figure out what female shoppers’ experience was like when they used lip balm. According to Fast Company more than a few of those shoppers found that when products were shaped like a short tube they became difficult to find. That product design often led to a perfectly good tube of lip balm getting lost underneath furniture or being hard to get a hold of when it was in a purse.
EOS lip balm’s unique shape means that the likelihood of you being able to find it when you want to use it is much higher. The company has also put a lot of thought into the flavors it has developed for its products. Customers that prefer flavors that are reminiscent of fruit might like the Strawberry Sorbet(http://www.target.com/p/eos-organic-lip-balm-sphere-strawberry-sorbet/-/A-13731791), Summer Fruit, Blueberry Acai, Honey Suckle Honey Dew and Passion Fruit flavors. Customers that prefer more muted scents and flavors will probably like the Vanilla Bean and Sweet Mint flavors. Shoppers that have used these products have noted that the scents feel natural which is an attribute that falls in line with the organic formulation of Evolution of Smooth’s lip balm.
EOS lip balm products are available on the shelves of stores such as Walmart, Target and Walgreens. The products are also available for online purchase via Ulta.com, eBay or Amazon.
