He is the CEO of Timber Creek and has written a book titled They Can’t Eat You explaining paths to business success.
His newest business concept puts him in the vanguard of business creation. He is changing the idea of venture capital by creating a new avenue for business success by offering needed advice, funding, space, and staff that every new start-up requires. Sparks realizes that the durable goods, the hard material stuff we used to produce and supply to the world have become the manufacturing business of other countries.
But his idea is to continue to create the very business ideas that have the power of changing the world for the better. His concept is called Spark Tank and offers business fundamentals to those new organizations with brilliant ideas that can become the next PayPal, eBay, or Uber. If Sparks accepts your idea, he will help in all the ways needed to develop a functioning business.
Marc Sparks has constructed a new office complex dedicated to helping those that he takes under his wings. This business complex and its staff can be used for meetings and conferences as these new companies go about securing additional funding and finding established business people who might have an active interest in helping the fledgling company find its rightful place in the business world.
The American economy is changing rapidly from a producer based to a service based economy. American industry has led the way for innovation and production quality but then, unfortunately, the rest of the world aided by lower labor costs can copy our products and produce the same or nearly identical goods at a fraction of the price.
The American economy must maintain its place as an innovative and enterprising nation and we, as a country, must move our ideas toward the forefront of creative thinking. This means we must strive to improve and invent new concepts in the growing technologies, that today are telecommunications and the internet-fueled communications industries.
Marc Sparks is doing his part in being a launch facility for these new ideas, and he will profit from offering this opportunity. But the rest of the world will greatly benefit from the advances these newly created businesses will provide.
Business leaders like Marc Sparks, who actively help other segments in their community, are examples for all of us.

Mikhail Blagosklonny is an oncology professor for the Roswell Park Cancer on nature.com. He studied for his medical degree at the First Pavlov State Medical University of St. Peterburg. He also went on to teach at the New York Medical College.
His first major position was at the Ordway Research Institute as a senior scientist. He finally moved on to the Roswell Park Cancer Institute to study cancer and aging related diseases. Much of his work has been studying drugs in relation to theoretical life extension.
Mikhail is popularly known for his unusual theory of the role of TOR signaling in aging. He has suggested that the usage of Sirolimus(rapamycin) can be used to directly reduce the aging process. This drug is typically used during organ transplants and for experimental cancer treatments on tandfonline.com. There is still much debate around this theory to this day.
Mikhail Blagosklonny produces many publications in relation to hematology, clinical trials and oncology. A recent publication was about his research on how Dual MTORC1/C2 inhibitors can reduce cellular geroconversion. He also analyzed a rat study that proves that Sirolimus reduces benign prostate hyperplasia in rats.
Mikhail Blagosklonny had also made an interesting publication discussing the relationship between calorie restriction and longevity. He named this paper Koschei the immortal and anti-aging drugs. Koschei was an immortal person that was very popular in Norther European and Slavic folklore that ate very little and had a bony body. He also discusses the benefits of combing Sirolimus, metformin and other theoretical life extending drugs with calorie restriction.
He also oversaw the study of rats being fed a high fat diet and used rapamycin to prevent fat gain. The study showed that the rats eating a high fat diet gained a lot of weight at the low fat diet prevented any weight gain.

Often an organization exists because of the leader who founded it. InnovaCare Health has two fabulous leaders in their respective areas for moving forward since the advent of socialized medicine in the United States, a country that once had the most vibrant, brilliant and quality healthcare system in the world. It is now in danger of falling into the abyss of government run healthcare, separating patients from their doctors in important decision making on hrmronline.com. The long lines for vital care will lengthen and many people in dire need could perish in the waiting periods they once never had during the era of freely offered healthcare choices.
It is a tragedy that for a handful of low income people with the false narrative of being turned away by their insurance companies for treatment of preexisting conditions that the overwhelming majority of Americans now have been saddled with a system that raised their rates to phenomenal levels as wells their deductibles so that care is now offered that a man does not need, such as a one size fits all policy that includes prenatal care.

Fortunately, Rick shinto, M.D., MBA and President and Chief Executive Officer of InnovaCare, and Penelope Kokkinides, Chief Administrative Officer with more than two decades of bureaucratic healthcare experience are teaming up to make sense of what has become of the healthcare system of the United States. They are using models that have been put in place in Puerto Rico. These plans that are available to the people in Puerto Rico are showing high levels of efficiency, cost effectiveness and satisfaction.
InnovaCare is now the leading provider of Medicaid and Medicare Advantage plans in the network of medical services provided by physicians. The number one concern of the participants in these provider plans is to give quality healthcare to the patients who subscribe to these plans. The characteristics reflect a sound plan with cost-saving models that are totally tied into frontier medical research and technologies on bizjournals.com. This socialized medical system will not shackle the patients and providers into falling behind into a less than innovative healthcare system just because of bureaucratic strings and ropes that could bind it.
Everyone who works behind the scenes at InnovaCare Health are bound to the mission of doing all that they can to support the patients as their number one priority in an unsettling and nebulous environment for the future of healthcare.

For several years’ the Latino music community has been producing pop superstars. Examples are internationally celebrated artists such as Shakira, Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin and many others. Currently, the Venezuelan pop artist, Norka Luque is the artist making headlines. Her lyrics are inspirational and carry a powerful message of hope.
NorkaLuque was born in Caracas, Venezuelan busiest city. She grew and attended high school in her hometown. Unlike other artists who indulge in music because of the money and fame, Norka became a professional singer to do more than that. Her main intention of joining the lucrative music industry was to touch and change people’s lives. She has succeeded in doing exactly this through her music.
Ms. Martinez started singing when she was a little girl (eight years old). She participated in different singing competitions while in school. Some of the singing competitions she took part in include “The “Golden Voice” and “School Festival of Gaitas.” Ms. Martinez graduated from high school then she headed to France to continue her education.
Ms. Martinez enrolled in a French school where she took a business course. After four years of hard work and dedication, she finally graduated from the business school. She was now ready to start working. She relocated to Monaco where she got a job in the banking sector.
This was when she decided to move to the United States. She knew that it was easier being noticed from the United States than any other country. She settled in Miami, a home to many Latino superstars. At first, Norka Luque found it quite challenging; she started performing in nightclubs in the South Beach area.
However, her big break came when the legendary producer Emilio Estefan attended one of her performances. Emilio fell in love with her unique voice. He decided to take Norka under his arms to nature and develop her into the artist she is today.
NorkaLuque’s first solo “Como lo hacestu” was released in 2011. This hit single enjoyed some success and even got her a nomination for the Best Pop Female Artist of the Year at the Lo Nuestro Award. Her second solo “Milagro” followed shortly.
Her most recent work is “Tomorrowland.” This single has been received warmly by her audience. Ms. Martinez still has a long way to go, but if we are to judge from her past work, she is surely going to enjoy even much greater success.
Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world by area, and Brazil has the sixth largest population in the world. Even though the economy has been weak over the last two years, Brazil still has the seventh largest economy in the world. The Brazilian people are a resilient, creative, and an enterprising group. Brazil has built a reputation as a BRICS nation. Brazil is a major player on the world’s export stage. The country has more natural resources that most people can name. Brazilian companies export red meat, soybeans, poultry, sugar cane, shoes, and building supplies to countries around the world. One of the top building material suppliers in the world is based in Sao Paulo. That company is Eucatex.
Brazil has a lot of eucalyptus trees, and in the 1950s, the trees were cut down to produce floorboards and ceiling tiles. A ceiling tile made from eucalyptus wood was a new product in 1954. Only one company in the state of Sao Paulo produced a wood ceiling tile and that company wasn’t really a company. The first wood ceiling tiles were produced by a sawmill owned by the Maluf family. But when the sawmill started shipping the eucalyptus wood tiles to customers, Eucatex was born.
In 1987, Flavio Maluf, the grandson of the founder of Eucatex, joined the company. Flavio knew he would be the president of Eucatex one day, but before he assumed that role, he went to New York and studied at NYU. Flavio studied the U.S. consumer market while he lived in New York. Flavio was named the president of the company in 1997, and almost immediately, he changed the business mentality of Eucatex. Maluf turned Eucatex into a modern day environmentally friendly exporter that conserved natural resources by using renewable energy in company factories.
Flavio also expanded the product line and that gave the company the opportunity to sell those products to the home improvement stores in North America and Europe. Today, Eucatex is one of the leading exporters of MDF panels, paints, floorboards and varnishes to retailers in the U.S. and Europe. Find Flavio personally on Facebook, and get his recent take on taxes on Infomoney.

On average, correctional facility inmates produce 13.8 complaints and grievances forms per person every month. Securus Technologies deals with 1.2 million inmates across the United states. Without digital technology, over 13 million pieces of paper have to be filed individually every month. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out there’s a lot of time and man hours involved in such bureaucracy–not to mention resources like paper, and the necessity of space to store physical records. Digitized technology solutions take all that hassle out of the equation. ConnectUs curtails the cost of man hours and resources which are devoted to this necessary aspect of institutional correctional facility functionality.
Applications are easily tailored to fit individual needs, and streamline the process of dealing with inmates substantially. Where once hours were involved, now there are only minutes.
Securus is no stranger when it comes to revolutionary innovations pertaining to incarceration information technology and the necessary security which comes with it. Their three decades’ experience in the industry has led them directly into the core of correctional facility operations, and they’ve developed their solutions around that core. Where time can be securely saved, and processes compressed, savings are more likely to occur. This focus on compression is one reason among many that Securus Technologies has been approved by the Better Business Bureau. As a matter of fact, they’ve received an A+ rating.
Those employed at correctional facilities deal with a bevy of difficulties. By making their lives easier and saving money at the same time, it’s much more likely that rehabilitation for inmates will have a chance of happening. ConnnectUs does quite a bit to make that rehabilitation more possible.
