Posted on April 28, 2017 in Legal Personality

About Sujit Choudhry

Sujit Choudhry is the Michael Heyman Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley. Choudhry was the dean of the school of law from 2014 to 2016. He previously worked as a professor at the University of Toronto and New York University. Sujit Choudhry has written numerous articles, papers, and reports over the course of his career. He has also written a few books namely The Oxford Handbook of the Indian Constitution, Constitution Making, and The Migration of Constitutional Ideas.

 

Ideamensch recently interviewed Choudhry. He gave advice to leaders and organizations. Choudhry started by saying that he brings his ideas to life by making sure that the work he does is practical and is tested on the field. He stated that they work with policymakers to come up with issues that are the most important. They collaborate with experts from different countries to identify examples. They then make their ideas a reality. He said that his biggest regret was focusing his research solely on Canada. He would have gone global from the onset if he was given a chance. He mentioned that the worst job he has ever had was when he worked as an academic administrator. More details here on en.wikipedia.org.

Based on crunchbase.com, Choudhry attributes his success as a leader to his ability to think about the long-term. This has helped him to become a thought leader since he is always ahead of the game. The trend that excites him the most is the role that the Internet plays in making knowledge on constitutional law available to the masses. This information was accessible by the highly educated in the past, but constitutional information is accessible to everyone today. Look here.

 

Choudhry added that his typical day begins with him catching up on current news. This is because constitutions are being rewritten or amended at any given time. It is important for him to stay up to date on the changes. He then responds to emails before spending a few hours on his research. He finishes by advising leaders to remain in touch with the people on the ground because they are in touch with what is going on. Hit this site works.bepress.com for more details.

Eric Lefkofsky Strikes Again – This Time at the Heart of Cancer

Posted on April 27, 2017 in Business Cancer Research

Eric Lefkofsky makes you realize how little you’ve accomplished in your life. After receiving his Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School in 1993, Lefkofsky co-founded Brandon Apparel Group. Since that time, he and his business partner Brad Keywell, have launched at least eight other companies, three of which he took public, including an e-commerce marketplace company called The Point, which you may know better by its more recent name – Groupon. Lefkofsky still serves as Groupon’s chairman and is its biggest shareholder, but last year he stepped down as its CEO to pursue a different kind of venture.

At 47, the serial entrepreneur set his sights on cancer. He co-founded Tempus, a biotechnology company, with the aim of creating a vast library of cancer data and then pairing it with a search engine that will allow doctors to personalize treatments for their cancer patients.Cancer is an extremely complicated set of diseases. No single course of treatment or medication works best for every patient. Over the past few decades, mountains of data have accumulated through research and clinical case histories, but that data is spread throughout the world’s universities, cancer research centers and hospitals, and more is being added every day. Doctors simply don’t have the time to collect and analyze the data.

Lefkofsky wants Tempus to do the analytics for the oncologists. Ideally, a physician will be able to enter the medical and genomic history of a patient, and Tempus will reach out and find the research and results that most closely match the patient. This will allow the best treatment options tailored to the individual.Forbes puts Lefkofsky’s net worth at nearly $2 billion, and Groupon, one of the fastest growing companies in history, might be legacy enough for most people, but Lefkofsky didn’t rest on those laurels. Perhaps the reason lies in a statement he made in a recent interview. “You start a company when you believe you’ve identified a big problem — a problem painful enough that you want to spend time fixing it.”

What You May Not Know About Vijay Eswaran and QI Group of Companies

Posted on April 11, 2017 in QI Group UAE

Dr. Vijay Eswaran is not only the current QI Group of Companies Executive Chairman but also the founder. This multi-million dollar investor is also a renowned international public speaker and author. The multi-business conglomerate has its widespread tentacles in many different sectors including retail, direct selling, hospitality, education and financial services.

His Business Interests

The Malaysian businessman established QNET, the group’s flagship subsidiary, in 1998. Today, the QI Group has its presence in over 30 countries globally with offices in different parts of the world, including in the UAE.

The giant business conglomerate has been very successful in merging traditional sales methods with the modern e-commerce model. According to Dr. Eswaran, his original vision was a new type of business that would easily merge the powerful people driven and direct sales approach with the new global reach made possible by the internet. Learn more about Vijay Eswaran: http://philanthropies.org/vijay-eswaran-2/

This is how the group merged the direct selling business model – which was already tried and tested – with the up-and-coming platform of e-commerce.

The QI Group

In its formative years, the QI Group partners had to grapple with the right choice of commodity that would make their business stand out. They finally came up with a numismatics as well as precious metals model basing it upon the flourishing European market policies.

In 1998, the group went ahead to purchase the rights to trade in the commemorative coins for the Asian Pacific Rim, in the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Read more: Dato’ Sri Vijay Eswaran Speaks At World Economic Forum 2016

The late entry into a market that was two years into sales already, made effective competition quite difficult due to time constraints. However, by the year 2000, the QI Group had managed to emerge among the top three—out of a total 42 distributors globally—in sales volume.

Conclusion

There is no doubt that the QI group, under the astute leadership of Dr. Vijay Eswaran, continues to grow in leaps and bounds. The group’s success can be attributed to the impact as well as penetration of the internet based sales coupled with the magical human touch through direct selling.

Vijay Eswaran admits that his greatest motivation is the big number of lives that the various services delivered by his giant business group have touched worldwide.

Securus Aids Police Searches With Instant New Tech

Posted on in Inmate Communication App

Prisoners can now help law enforcement prevent crime without becoming a “rat”. Being a wrapped inside of the prison is one of the worst social conditions imaginable. There is a certain thief’s honor that incarcerated individuals in force. Any prisoner that tells on any other prisoner to law enforcement may have to fear for their lives inside of the prison.

 

But a new technology from Securus Technologies is changing the game. Securus is a telecommunications giant that deals exclusively with the state-run facilities, specifically prisons. The telecommunications company gets business by securing government contracts to make them the sole provider of telecommunications services to a particular facility. Any prisoner wanting to make a phone call must make that call through Securus.

 

Because Securus handles every single telephone call in a particular prison, they are in a unique position to intercept every single communication made by a prisoner. And they do just that. Securus records every single telephone call made by a prisoner or prison employee that makes a phone call on a hard line. This creates a massive amount of digitally recorded telephone calls in the form of a database.

 

But a giant digital database is difficult to search. It is not like searching for a book in a library that has a system. The millions of hours of recorded telephone calls can be instantly searched using Securus’s new software. The software can search for certain phrases or a particular individual’s voice.

 

The software breaks down the recorded voice. It analyzes the voice much like someone would analyze a fingerprint. Once it comes up with the vocal fingerprints, it applies that information to the database to pull up any phone call involving that fingerprint. This allows police officers to search a massive amount of digital information in a virtual instant.

Planning Without Stressing

Posted on April 10, 2017 in Event Planners

If you’re planning a party, there are a few tips from event planning companies in NYC that you can use to relieve some of the stress associated with everything from what to serve to guests to decorations.

 

The first thing that should be done is to get organized. Make a list of the people you want to invite along with the items on the menu and the budget that you have to work with. A master list is a good idea to have, changing it to suit the type of event that you are planning. Decide on a theme for the party. It could be a fiesta or a scene from a favorite book or movie. Let guests know about the theme, especially if you want them to dress up to celebrate the event. Have games that blend with the theme as well as food and decorations.

 

Online invitations are good to send as a reminder, but an invitation that you deliver by hand or that you send in the mail is formal and should still be a part of the party planning as it makes guests feel wanted and welcomed at the event. If you plan on offering drinks at the party, then consider a self-serve bar. This will allow guests to get what they want at any time instead of waiting on you to serve a specific kind of beverage. Include this information on the invitations that are sent as some guests might want to bring a favorite drink. An important part of any event is to make guests of all ages feel comfortable. Set up a children’s area and a table where they can have fun without getting involved with the talk from the adults.

 

Twenty Three Layers is one of the corporate event planners in NYC that offers everything from decorating to meal planning. The company works with some of the largest vendors in the world. Twenty Three Layers has one goal in mind, and that’s to make each event as special as possible.

How Adam Goldenberg And Don Ressler Created JustFab Inc

Posted on in Business business leaders

Mr. Adam Goldenberg, Co-Founder and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Just Fabulous, Inc. has six years of experience in product development, management, and Internet marketing. In 2006, he co-founded Intelligent Beauty, Inc. and served as its Chief Executive Officer. He also served as the President of Brentwood Cosmetics, LLC and Alena LLC since January 2004. He served as the President of Performance Marketing Group of Intermix Media LLC since January 29, 2004, and served as its Chief Operating Officer from October 26, 2001, to January 29, 2004. He co-founded Alena Media and launched Hydroderm. He then teamed up with Don Ressler to found Brand Ideas.

Mr. Don Ressler also the Co-Founder and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Intelligent Beauty, Inc. has made more than 1 billion US dollars in deals and has raised more than 100 million US dollars in capital for Internet organizations, in this manner procuring a notoriety for being a business and brand-building master. He co-founded, served as Chief Executive Officer and President of FitnessHeaven.Com, Inc. At Intemix Media, he initiated core ventures that complimented shareholder’s value. He co-founded Alena Media and created the skin care brand Hydroderm and Brand Ideas.

The two turned out to be quick friends, and when in 2005 Intermix was obtained by News Corporation. Don and Adam rushed to begin their firm. They created an e-commerce brand incubator platform called Intelligent Beauty in 2006. They then went ahead to create brands as leaders in the beauty and health market and started thinking of how to put the shopping experience online. Adam and Don worked under the rule that for fashion to work on the web, it was necessary to make it fun, interactive, and social. They prepared for a development of Intelligent Beauty and started making a personalization stage, enlisting style experts and planners, and working out an alluring and reasonable membership display. The outcome was JustFab, a style group where customers get a choice of shoes, purses, and accessories customized to their taste every month for less than forty dollars. JustFab closed an $85 million round of funding led by Passport Special Opportunity Fund in August 2014. The series conveyed the organization’s aggregate capitalization to about 250 million US dollars.

Adam Goldenberg Has A Lot Of Plans Yet Ahead For TechStyle, JustFab’s New Name

Posted on in Business business leaders

If you didn’t know yet, JustFab one of the hottest fashion retail companies out there, is now changing its name to TechStyle Fashion Group. This move is part of a grand plan that CEOs Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler have to make it into something special through using special data and a great user experience. JustFab has already been a hit with its social media integration and membership options, and this name change is just another piece of the puzzle. Goldenberg also wants to continue opening physical retail stores so that more customers can get an up close and personal look at the merchandise.

 

Adam Goldenberg really knew very little about fashion when he and Ressler started up the company. Originally they both were part of the MySpace parent company, Intermix Media. Goldenberg first joined Intermix Media when they bought out his company, Gamer’s Alliance back in 1998. He was only 18 when he first started at Intermix Media, but he would do such an incredible job working there that he got promoted very quickly. While working there as chief operating officer, he teamed up with FitnessHeaven.com founder Don Ressler, a man who was also an expert marketer and who would build several companies with Goldenberg marketing health and beauty products. Most notably they formed Alena Media, an e-commerce branch of the company that helped generate a lot of revenue.

 

Goldenberg and Ressler decided to leave Intermix Media in 2005 because News Corporation had bought them out, and the two didn’t like where things were headed there. So they first founded a home-based company called Intelligent Beauty from which they marketed and sold several cosmetics and health supplement brands. In 2010, they decided to build a fashion retail company that would offer an experience unlike any that was currently being offered, and that company became JustFab.

 

JustFab was receiving the endorsements and support from many people who loved its affordable prices and fun shopping experience, but it also needed some venture capital. So Josh Hannah at Matrix Partners helped start the initial offering, and soon many other venture capital suppliers were coming on board as well. Goldenberg and Ressler’s company had also been initially targeted towards female shoppers, but soon they added subsidiary companies such as FabMen, Fabletics 2, and even FabKids. In 2013, the company became a “unicorn” after the latest surge of sales venture capital put its valuation at over $1 billion.

What Is The Role Of Comparative Law?

Posted on April 6, 2017 in Leading Law Educator

Sujit Choudhry is a world-renowned authority in the field of comparative constitutional law and politics. The founding director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions currently serves as the I. Michael Heyman Professor of Law, in the Berkeley School of Law at the University of California, see works.bepress.com.  Previously, Sujit Choudhry worked as a Cecilia Goetz Professor of Law at NY University, and also as the School Chair at the University of Toronto.

The Center for Constitutional Transitions is responsible for generating and mobilizing knowledge to support constitution building. It achieves its objectives by bringing together and leading international networks of experts to finish thematic research projects that deliver evidence-based options to the practitioners. Until today, the CCT has worked collaboratively with more than 50 experts from over 25 countries.   Related Article on crunchbase.com.

Sujit Choudhry has lectured in more than two dozen countries on issues of comparative law and political matters. His research works are inclined to constitutional design as a critical tool for managing the transition from violent conflict to peaceful and democratic politics. Sujit Choudhry is also interested in the elements capable of bringing stability to the societies that are struggling with ethnic division.  Read blogs, follow Choudhry on linkedin.com.

Comparative law entails the study of the existing differences and similarities between the legal systems of different countries. The various aspects of the legal systems studied include the civil law, common law, Jewish law, canon law, Islamic law, Chinese, and Hindu law. In instances where there are no exact comparisons, comparative law entails the descriptions, as well as analysis of the identified foreign legal systems. Recent years have seen a significant increase in the importance of comparative law largely because of economic globalization, democratization, and internationalism.

Head over to this important link.

Sujit Choudhry argues that the field of comparative law is quite different from other fields such as international law and legal theory, and it has offered significant contributions to the development and understanding of laws in these fields. International organizations such as the United Nations find comparative law extremely useful when it comes to gaining an in-depth understanding of laws in different countries. This helps them in the formulation of appropriate policies suitable for various legal systems. Comparative law has become an indispensable role in legal transplants – transferring laws from one system to another. This field of law has also played a vital role in answering questions in sociology and economics – by illustrating how different regulations worked in the past, to solve a shared problem.
