Chicago’s Perry Mandera created his charity Custom Cares to support a variety of causes. The charity’s name is taken from the name of Mandera’s logistics and shipping company Custom Companies Inc. Custom Cares has supported veterans’ causes through Hiring Our Heroes and Marines For Life. Mandera is a Marine Corp. Veteran.
When tornados, hurricanes, wildfires, floods, or any natural disaster occurs anywhere in the US Custom Cares is there. Perry Mandera will send his trucks loaded with food, medicine, and other relief supplies. Custom Cares also provides victims with transportation.
It’s obvious that Perry Mandera is committed to relieving suffering where he can. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and American Cancer Society are among the health-related charities his charity supports. It seems that Mandera is especially committed to helping youth not just in the Chicago area, but the nation and the world as well.
A case-in-point would be The Mercy Home for Boys and Girls. Children who are abused or neglected are likely to do the same to their own children. For 131 years the Mercy Home has worked to prevent future generations of children from being abused and neglected by providing its residents with a nurturing and supportive environment.
Through the Green Thumbs for a Greener World initiative, Mercy Home staff and volunteers sought to teach their charges about sustainability and to be responsible citizens. Adults and young people worked together to restore the garden at The Mercy Home for Boys and Girls Hay’s campus. Vegetables and flowers were planted not just for self-sufficiency and aesthetics, but to teach the children ways to reduce their carbon footprint.
The Mercy Home for Boys and Girls is just one way in which Perry Mandera and Custom Cares benefit young people. When The Walter and Connie Payton Foundation and The Jesse White Tumblers collected 6,500 winter coats for impoverished children in Chicagoland and surrounding communities the coats were transported in Custom Companies trucks.
Custom Cares grants educational and financial support to children and young adults who are at-risk and sponsors youth league teams across Illinois.
Last week, Marco Antonio Marques da Silva received recognition for his many years of hard work and dedication to Pontifical Catholic University of Sao Paulo. The ceremony was presided over by the president of the university, Dirceu De Mello. In his speech, De Mello talked about how da Silva is an integral part of the university and always willing to lend a hand. He also assisted with the construction of the new auditoriums and is therefore more than deserving of this award. His history with the university dates all the ways back to the late 1970’s. Marco Antonio Marques da Silva first enrolled in PCU Sao Paolo in 1977. He graduated four years later and accepted a faculty position there a year after that.
He also continued his studies at PCU SP as he pursued his master’s, doctorate and a few teaching degrees. In 2003, he received tenure at CPU Sao Paolo. Two years later, he began his postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Coimbra as he served as a member of the faculty of law. It was at age 5 that he first knew he wanted to pursue a career in law and, in 1982, he was given the opportunity to join the state judiciary. In 2002, he was appointed to be a substitute judge. Five years later, he was promoted to Court of Appeals Judge and has been serving in that capacity ever since. He also remains a member of the faculty at PCU Sao Paolo. (estantevirtual)
During his acceptance speech, he emphasized the fact that no man is an island and gave an acknowledgement to his friends and family for helping him to reach this point in his career. He also discussed his literary work as he is the proud author of over 40 different articles and 13 books. He also affirmed his commitment to making fair decisions as a judge and doing his best to uphold the law. He also received a plaque in commemoration of his dedication to the university. So we wish him the best of luck in the future of his career as both a professor and judge.
Since earning his Bachelor’s degree from Northern Illinois University and his MBA from DePaul University, Jeff Aronin has been running at full steam ever since. What follows is a recap of an article about Jeff on Live Newspaper’s website.
Early on in his working life, Jeff was shadowing a doctor as the physician visited patients. One patient was a boy with frequent, ongoing seizures. Instead of defaulting to surgery, the physician decided to try drug therapy first. That was the beginning of Jeff Aronin’s fascination and respect for the power of pharmaceutical medicine. Jeff decided then and there to apply his considerable business knowledge to the creation of more effective drugs.
In 2000 Jeff Aronin founded the pharmaceutical startup Ovation Pharmaceuticals. Jeff’s approach was straightforward: Identify a patient need, next find science holding the promise of treatment, and then assemble, direct, and motivate a team to bring it to market efficiently. Just nine years later, Ovation sold to Lundbeck for $900-million. Lundbeck opted to keep Jeff on as CEO, thus avoiding any stumbles during the transition.
Jeff’s leadership qualities appear to be readily recognizable, as he has served as CEO of several health-sciences companies, among them: Harmony BioSciences, Castle Creek Pharmaceuticals, and Paragon Pharmaceuticals. Along the way, Jeff and his teams have gotten 13 new drugs approved — a remarkable feat in the drug industry.
Jeff Aronin is committed to growing the biotech industry in Chicago. Jeff founded the Chicago biotech incubator Matter, which currently has over 200 startups in development. Jeff enjoys sharing his experience, insights, and vision with budding entrepreneurs.
Jeff has spent the last decade at Paragon in the capacities of Chairman and CEO. Jeff’s rare combination of scientific vision, business acumen, and a focus on finding treatments for patients suffering from rare diseases has made Jeff a recognized leader in the industry.

The Real Estate industry has been commercialized, and those who do it for commercial purposes have an opportunity to invest their capital into new property Commercial real estate is just any other investment and it can be divided into several levels and types depending on the level of risks as well as the income it is yielding. The commercial real estate grouping might seem so straightforward, but one needs to have an expert to explain o them. Christopher Linkas is an experienced real estate investor and listed below is his explanation of the different types of commercial real estate businesses.
Opportunistic Properties: this is a very high reward property investment, but it is also very risky. According to real estate experts, these types of properties might be vacant at the time of purchase but do not have a flow of cash. To realize possible returns, this type of commercial real estate investment will require a huge amount of capital.
Core Properties: it is considered to be the lowest risk of investment in the commercial real estate sector. These types of properties have a ready cash flow and they are well established. Core properties are well maintained and they do not require any renovation.
Value-add properties: it is another type of commercial investment opportunity. This type of investment also have cash flow, but some improvements might be required. The improvements may range from renovating the buildings to meet the required standards to increase rent.

It is common knowledge that the long term prospects for small businesses are very low. In Miami, it has proven particularly difficult for small businesses to succeed long term, with the five-year failure rate ranging from eighty-five percent to an astounding ninety-eight percent. Despite the solid economic recovery following the Great Recession, these numbers have not improved.
An article on the Miami branch of Patch Media has detailed the advice of long-standing business expert Glen Wakeman on how small businesses can survive long term, even in an area as seemingly hostile as Miami.
First, the article suggests that certain elements such as undercapitalization – the lack of adequate funds needed to sustain a business venture – and fiscal mismanagement – the misuse of funds on hand, regardless of whether or not they are adequate – are blamed for the failures of businesses disproportionately to how much effect they actually have. In reality, according to the article, proper acquisition and use of funds does not guarantee success, as failure tends to usually be connected to issues surrounding sales rather than issues surrounding funding.
The article points out that most successful businesses inadvertently utilize useful sales techniques as simple as leaving signs on their door or offering free products and services to attract customers.
Glen Wakeman suggests a three-step plan to persevere in even the most difficult of markets. First, he suggests a focus on the perks and benefits of a service or products when soliciting customers, as opposed to a focus on its features and capabilities. An example would be to suggest that a running shoe provides cushioning and minimizes pain, as opposed to simply touting that it comes with a memory foam sole.
Second, Wakeman encourages searching for evidence that contradicts already held beliefs, so as to not launch a business with ideas that will prove themselves wrong and lead to the demise of the business.
Finally, Wakeman suggests the building of a dispassionate support system of people not emotionally attached to the business, who are capable of dispensing advice and providing feedback and criticism without any qualms.
Without any doubt, it takes a lot of work to for a company to meet its goals and grow. This explains why visionary leaders are very essential in organizations. The success story of Telereal Trillium under the leadership of Graham Edwards is very inspirational.

Graham Edwards has dwelt on sealing partnership deals which have enabled the company to gain substantial financial benefits. The first deal that saw this company grow was that of the 2001 partnership with British Telecomholdings, BT. It was able to acquire 6700 properties owned by BT. The other deal that Graham Edwards led was in 2009 whereby he acquired Trillium from Land Securities Group Plc. The success of these deals has enabled Telereal Trillium is ranked among the best in the industry.
Graham possesses superb leadership and management skills. He acquired them through his previous working experience and also through his education. He holds a degree in economics. He also used to make significant investment decisions for Talisman Global Asset Management. He also held various management positions in Merrill Lynch Investment Management. These experiences coupled with his passion for the investment field are significant towards his growth as a leader.
Besides his experience, Graham Edwards has established a culture that is supportive of his strategic plans. Employees and other staff members in this organization have already realized about the benefits of Graham Edwards’ execution of projects. Additionally, this leader has created a platform for talent development and individual growth. He can identify an opportunity and also pursue it in a manner that realizes enormous value.
At this day when competition between companies is very high, the leadership of people like Graham Edwards is required. There is the need for a person who can establish plans that are not only beneficial in the short term but also in the long run. The economy is very unpredictable and should a financial crisis arise, companies that lack strategic plans can fail terribly.
Jorge Moll is a revered scientist known for documenting multiple clinical studies on how the human brain functions. Over the past years, he has conducted research on neurology and the physical mechanisms encompassing emotional responses including the ways through which mental illnesses impact the dominance a human’s brain. Following the research results from 2006, Moll has vested his research in addressing the architecture of the human brain and how it can affect the manner in which a person is touched to give back to the community.
Perhaps there is a relationship between giving back and the functioning of the human brain. Even better, Moll’s study seeks to decipher these facts by saying that a human’s capacity to engage in social causes is related to the cost benefit. Moreover, monetary donations sent to charities make good examples of how the human brain is affected. He calls in an altruistic behaviour because the structure of the human brain is one distinct aspect in the body. As such, it makes one wonder how exactly the physical composition of a brain affects the thinking capacity of an individual.
In an interview, Jorge Moll, joined by his team of qualified neuroscientists answered a few questions in regards to the human brain and donations. The study sought to analyse the subjects and emphasise their character when subjected to series of questions regarding the altruistic nature of the brain. As such, researchers emphasised that the mesolimbic system controls the part of the brain that feels the need to be generous with people. This is done through the release of a chemical component called dopamine. Over the course of this study, candidates were asked to either oppose or support the claims. It was later concluded that people who have been through difficult situations are more inclined to give back to the society because of the response from the brain.
Describing Jorge Moll
Jorge Moll is a qualified medical professional from The Federal University of Rio De Janeiro. He completed his residency from the same school and headed out to receive his Ph.D from the Sao Paulo University.
