This fund will be Highland Capital’s first private equity with healthcare objectives.

 

Investors have specific objectives for their returns on this hedge fund. They expect to be able to have co-investment opportunities to fund their own ventures in the US, China and Korea. On the Asian continent, Highland Capital will partner with Stonebridge Capital to co-manage the fund. This hedge fund will mark Highland Capital’s first private equity healthcare oriented fund in Asia.

Eric Pulier is an accomplished author, entrepreneur, philanthropist, public speaker and all around great guy.

 

He graduated from Teaneck High School in 1984. After graduating high school, he headed off to Harvard University. During his time at Harvard, Pulier studied English Literature, Computer Science and Visual & Environment Studies. He authored the PulierLeg, a weekly column he created for the Harvard Crimson Weekly, and later became Editor of the university’s newspaper. Pulier graduated from Harvard University in 1988 with is Bachelor of Arts Degree.

 

Pulier’s contributions to the philanthropic community are quite notable. He has donated a great deal of time and resources to several non-profit organizations and relief efforts. He takes a special interest in the technology space. More specifically, using technology to overcome some of the most intractable problems faced by the physically disabled and those suffering from severe economic disadvantages.

 

One extraordinary example of Pulier’s philanthropic style is The Painted Turtle where Pulier currently serves as Vice President of Cloud Operations. The Painted Turtle is a camp that caters to the needs of children with disabilities. Many children with life threatening disabilities are often deprived of the simple joys of just being a kid. The Painted Turtle aims to fix that. The campsite and activities are completely customized to work with the needs of each camper; giving them them opportunity to just sing, dance, laugh, play and most importantly: enjoy childhood.

 

Similarly to The Painted Turtle, Starbright World helps children suffering from chronic illnesses. They have a variety of programs that connect the families they work with to the support services that they need. Pulier donated his time, money and talents to create an entire social network for children and their families to connect and offer support for people going through the same challenges.

 

These are just a few of the incredible contributions Eric Pulier has made. He really is trying to empower the world, one child at a time.

 


The world can be a dark and scary place to live filled with countless atrocity’s that if go unchecked can lead to its ultimate destruction. No matter how dark there are still some organizations out there that try and shine some light in that dark scary place. Here are a couple of the civil, human or migrant rights organizations that are out there in the world on the front lines.

amnesty international is a worldwide human rights organization consisting of 7 million plus people. It is funded by private donors and its members so they like to say they are owned by no one person or no one ideology. The group investigates and exposes facts of atrocities and other bad things that governments, people, or organizations inflict on other groups of people, religions, or organizations.

Amnesty international was started in 1961 by a British lawyer Peter Benenson, when he wrote an article about two Portuguese students that raised a toast to freedom. Amnesty international have been on the frontlines of cases for individual’s rights such as Jenni Monet, The Berks Kids, Maxima Acuna and Ilham Tohti just to name a few.

Another wonderful organization is The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund in Arizona. The Frontera Fund was started by Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin two journalist that founded the village voice media. The men were arrested by sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “selective enforcement unit” for writing un favorable articles about the sheriff.

The two men were later released 24 hours later after public outrage, and all the charges dropped. The men then sued the Maricopa county sheriff’s office the ninth circuit court of appeals decided in their favor saying they were unjustly arrested and detained. The appellate court’s decision made it possible for a 3.7-million-dollar settlement to be paid to Lacey and Larkin by Maricopa county in 2013.

Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin’s Frontera fund went on to benefit many different civil rights organizations in Arizona. a few of those organizations are the ACLU, American Immigration Council, Promise Arizona, and Aliento. The organizations that are funded are largely aimed at helping the large Hispanic community in Arizona.

In 2014 as many politicians begin to run I Mike and Jim begin to distribute funds to worthy non- profit groups that advocate for civil rights and causes of Arizona’s Hispanics. The fund is still funding and helping many non-profits today.

After the demonization of anyone with brown skin by Sheriff Joe Arpaio Mike Lacey was quoted saying “I think the people of Arizona are better than this. Of course, Jim and I stand with migrants. We are all migrants”.

These two organizations are just two of many in the world that battle every day to make the world a better place to live and you can help. If you would like to help people like Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin join the local groups in your area, volunteer at shelters or food kitchens or donate to the ones mentioned in the article above. you don’t have to join large organizations or even join an organization at all you alone can make a difference in the world.


There are those groups in America that have too often found themselves being harassed and intimidated in society, and not just on the streets but in places they shouldn’t be, like schools and colleges.

 

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) groups have been responsible for bringing some form of harassment and intimidation to campuses for many years and have only increased as time has gone on. Despite the number of Jewish and pro-Israel groups available to try and counter these incidents, the hate has only grown since then. For example, a Jewish student at UCLA found themselves almost barred from joining the student government’s judicial board because of sudden accusations of dual loyalty stemming from her Jewish heritage.

 

A lack of Jewish and pro-Israel organizations can generally be to blame for the incidents, especially since many students of Jewish heritage are outnumbered on many of these college campuses. As a result, there has been some change made, starting with the founding of a group called Students Supporting Israel (SSI) by pro-Israel students at the University of Minnesota. The group consisted mainly of students who would not stand by as the anti-Israel messages were shown all across campus, and stuck by the plan of creating a grassroots group that would unite both supporters of Israel and other people of all races, colors and religions. Since then, the SSI has chartered more chapters on other campuses nationwide.

 

Adam Milstein was born in Haifa, Israel but moved with the family from Kiryat Yam and Kiryat Motzkin over his earlier years.

He later went on to earn his Masters in Business Administration from the University of Southern California. From there, he started as a real estate agent in commercial sales. He also is the co-founder of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, a group that provides services to Jewish people and pro-Israel causes.

Compared to most community colleges, one of the things that make Orange Coast College a bit unique is the interest they place in sports, especially the sport of rowing. In fact, OCC has one of the top rowing teams in the nation. Rowing is one of the few sports that remains as an amateur activity and OCC is doing their bit to keep it that way.

The college recently qualified to take part in the Nationals being held in Gainesville, GA on Lake Lanier. What makes this endeavor interesting is that the team is considered to be a novice group of youngsters, captained by Daniel Amado.

Amado is a graduate of Los Alamitos High School and is 22 years of age. While in high school he suffered a serious back injury. However, he bounced back and is back at the helm of his rowing team.

His recovery and sportsman spirit to get back into the action is representative of the OCC rowing teams attitude towards the sport. On May 25, he and the rest of the crew will take the legendary name in rowing to the Nationals.

Classes commenced in the fall of 1948 and today the college has grown to approximately 25,000 including staff and students. The motto of the college is “We’ll help you get there” and the mascot is Pete the Pirate. The college belongs to the Coast Community College District of California.

Some of the facilities available at Orange Coast College include a 500 seat gym, facility for drama students, a small concert hall, library, and student center. All of these facilities were converted from the military building that existed there before.
