Eric Lefkofsky on the Path to Curing Cancer

Curing cancer is complex and requires countless man hours of research and clinical data to be passed between researchers and doctors. All that vital data needs to be analyzed and delivered somehow, to doctors trying to cure cancer patients. For example, if a cancer researcher is analyzing a group of breast cancer patients taking Herceptin, they will examine and record why the drug apparently only works on 40% of the patients and not the rest! Many questions are examined as to what other factors could be involved in preventing that 60% who failed the cure. Could it be that perhaps diabetes or some other illness is involved, and is preventing the cure? Are these “incurable” patients taking some other medicines (drugs) that are interfering? These are the vital bits of information that researchers and doctors need to bridge between each other.

Mr. Eric Lefkofsky is an entrepreneur who is hot on the trail of solving exactly these sorts of challenges. He was personally motivated to start up a cancer research company called Tempus after his dear wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. Tempus is a technology company that has developed an operating system which helps bridge such vital data between researchers and doctors, to help in effectively treating cancer. According to Mr. Lefkofsky (Fortunate Brainstorm Health Conference in San Diego), there is a lack of resources that help combine genetic data with therapeutic data. Lefkofsky says, “Gathering molecular data is one thing, but you also need clinical [patient] data. You [also] need therapeutic and outcome response data.”

Lefkofsky notes that “If you were to go into any of the cancer treatment centers and ask who took Herceptin over two years and how they did, they’d need a grant and at least 90 days. That’s the sort of data that should flow freely between researchers, clinicians, and others.” And that’s precisely where Tempus steps in to solve problems. Mr. Lefkofsky is an incredibly generous and charitable man. In 2006, he and his wife formed a charitable trust that donates funding to educational and scientific causes helping save lives.

George Soros is a political activist and a philanthropist with a clear understanding of how a government can make an impact on the nation and the citizens. Hence, he has been working throughout his life to support and promote democracy in the USA and other parts of the world.

George Soros has been an active supporter of the Democratic party as he strongly believes that this the best group that understand the best interest of the USA.

In 2004 election, Soros was considered as one of the largest donors for Democratic Party who helped the party to fight against Bush campaign. George Soros was quite concerned about the perspective and mindset of Bush, and this is why he spent a big fortune that time. However, once Bush won the election, he reduced his political donation and focused on philanthropic causes.

While Soros made a significant amount of Donation to Obama in the election on opensocietyfoundations.org, he made a huge buzz with his donations and commitment to donate a massive $26 million in the presidential election between Donald and Clinton.

Fabletics Takes on Amazon in David and Goliath Styled Battle

One of the most interesting battles of 2017 will be between Fabletics and Amazon. This is a David and Goliath type of war, and everyone that shops online knows that Amazon is definitely Goliath. Fabletics is a failing business even though it has more than a million customers. This is a business that grew online, it continued to flourish as a couple of stores open throughout the United States. Now there is a lot of talk about how this company may possibly lure more customers with as many as 100 new stores within the next five years.

 

It is very possible that the physical stores are the smooth stones that David- also known as Fabletics in this scenario – will need in order to maximize profits and knock out the giant that is known as Amazon. This is a company that is headed by Kate Hudson. She is an actress, but there is certainly a strong entrepreneurial spirit that has taken over in the last several years.

 

Unlike the battle with David and Goliath, this Amazon versus Fabletics battle will not result in death. The rise of Fabletics, however, will certainly put a dent in the profits for Amazon. Both companies have the ability to sell clothing to women, and Amazon currently controls about 20% of this market. Amazon makes billions of dollars each year so it is easy for this company to continue to flourish even in the midst of competition from Fabletics. What is interesting, however, is the way that Fabletics caters primarily to women. This gives the company the ability to build a target market that can lure a lot of the customers away from Amazon. This may be the main reason that Amazon executives are taking note of everything that this company has done. Fabletics is the company to watch, and many people are going to consider what Kate Hudson is offering because her line of clothing is comfortable and durable. That is a rare combination that does not always present itself in the majority of clothes that consumers buy.

 

Fabletics is definitely the company that consumers can expect to see more of in the next five years. This is a company that has proven that there is a void in the industry, and Kate Hudson has every desire to fill this void. She has shown herself to be one of the best possible choices for leading a new wave of females that want to work out and look good while doing so. Hudson has taken an active role in promoting the clothes that are sold through the Fabletics website. She has made it her business to elevate this company to new heights that could have never been reached if she didn’t take the time to promote the brand herself. Fabletics is still a brand that appeals to a lot of different customers because it is still a novelty. Many people are still unaware of this brand so the newness of it all is still appealing.
