Canada’s Dr. Cameron Clokie Helping Patients Grow their Bones Back with Regenerative Medicine

The future of medicine looks bright. In the list of the doctors who are committed to improving the treatment and care of patients, you would not fail to find the Canadian Dr. Cameron Clokie. Since 2005, Canada’s Dr. Cameron Clokie has been growing back his patient’s bones and jawlines through regenerative medicine.

In simple terms, regenerative medicine is a scientific process where a particular protein that turns the adult stem cells into bone tissues is introduced into the body thus allowing fractured bones and jaws to grow back.

According to Crunchbase, Dr. Clokie, who is in charge of the oral and maxillofacial surgery department at the University of Toronto, pioneered this process to help cancer and accident patients heal faster. Already regenerative medicine has helped a number of patients grow back their jaws and limbs.

One of Dr. Clokie’s patients who is enjoying the numerous benefits of regenerative medicine is Peter Russel. Peter Russel had his lower right jawbone reconstructed after losing it to benign tumor.

According to Peter Russel who is aged 60 years, he was able to regrow back his jaw despite his advanced age and the wonderful part of it is that this procedure left him with minimum visible scars in his body.

Since 2005, Dr. Clokie has been a huge advocate for regenerative medicine. Just like a salamander, with the right regenerative treatment, our bodies have the immense power of treating and growing back its tissues. Compared with the traditional reconstructive surgery, this treatment procedure has its benefits. Top on the list is the time a patient spends receiving treatment and care.

While with traditional reconstructive surgery a patient stays up to 19 hours on the operating table and two weeks in the hospital, Clokie notes with regenerative medicine it will only take you 4 hours in the operating room and two nights in the hospital. Comparing the two options, it is without a doubt that regenerative medicine is the future of modern medicine.

When it comes to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Cameron is one of the best brains we got in the world. Dr. Clokie has Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) (1985).

In addition to this, Dr. Cameron Clokie has a Ph.D. (1992) from McGill University where he specialized in bone regeneration in relation to the dental development of oral dental implants. Currently, Dr. Clokie is the CEO of Induce Biologics Inc. a firm that specializes in creating revolutionary musculoskeletal reconstructions.

Fabletics Creates History By Capturing The Online Workout Fashion Industry

Fabletics is many ways a different online retailer and giving a better experience to its customers. Though initially it became known as a workout fashion brand from Kate Hudson, it is not anymore require that caption. What to say about a firm which captured sales of $250 million in just 3-years? The ever increasing number of customers and sales is proving that it has miles to go, and all the other online retailers including Amazon should be careful about Fabletics. Since it has a number of factors that lead to this great success in the fashion industry, it is wonderful to discuss it as it could be a lesson to other fashion retailers.

 

Reverse Showrooming and Online Data

 

The implementation of reverse showrooming by using online data was a great success for Fabletics. It opened a number of brick and mortar showrooms across the major cities in U.S. These showrooms serve the purpose of people who wanted to physically check the product before purchasing. It is observed many times that a significant percent of people are interested in experiencing the product before purchasing it. However, online showroom platforms like Amazon is not providing any such options, until people order it and receive it in hand. But, people find the deals and prices in online retailers better than physical showrooms. Fabletics showrooms are allowing people to experience the product and buy it online. The showrooms use the online data and list the hot-selling products in the showroom. So, the people get the popular products from either online or offline and get an option to search specific products online.

 

 

The Ultimate Winner – Products

 

 

The quality, value, and style of any fashion product play the deciding factor in terms of sales. In each case, Fabletics products give the best experience to its customers. The leggings from Fabletics are thick and shows great compression while the tops are soft and of great quality. They don’t fade, lose the shape, become rough, or threads come out over extensive usage. The products are giving an impressive style. The cut-outs in tanks or simple tanks with solid colors are really expressing its style icon. The sheer panels in Capris is another great style statement from the online fashion retailer. The brand sometimes surprises customers with some unexpected designs. When it comes to value, all the products that are sold by Fabletics are minimum 30 percent less than the products available in the market with same quality and style statements. The stylish leggings from the brand are just charging at around $50, whereas similar quality product from Lululemon or any other retailer goes beyond $80.

 

 

Focus on Accessibility and Culture

 

 

It really gives a smooth buying experience with its smart purchase options, fast distribution, and highly convenient membership programs. By investing both in online retailing and physical shops, the firm wanted to give a complete shopping experience without any compromise to customers’ needs and expectations. Also, the aggressive approach by the management in providing the best experience also paying well with its increasing growth rate of minimum 35 percent for the last 3-years.

The Frontera Fund Continues to Support Immigrant Families in the Wake of DACA Changes

Following the recent news of the federal government’s winding down of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund has renewed its commitment to providing resources and information for immigrants living in the United States. The Frontera Fund advocates the passage of DREAM Act legislation.

 

The full implications of the changes to the U.S. federal government’s stance on DACA are still unclear. It is yet unknown whether the young adults who arrived in the U.S. as children stand to lose their federal authorization to work and attend school in the U.S.

 

The Undocumented Student Program at the University of California-Berkeley recommends that those who have a recent criminal history do not go forward with attempting to renew their DACA applications, since it is still unknown what is being done with the information collected from these forms. This includes certain misdemeanor offenses as well as felonies, including driving under the influence. It cannot be confirmed that the information collected from DACA renewal forms will be used to target individuals for removal, but this possibility cannot be excluded either. Those who’ve had any recent contact with law enforcement are advised to seek the help of an attorney.

 

DACA is a program designed to aid those immigrants who arrived in the U.S. before they were 16 years of age. Those who qualify for the program must also be studying toward, or have already earned, a high school diploma or the equivalent, or must be members of the Coast Guard or military, including those who have been honorably discharged from the Coast Guard or military. DACA is intended to grant these individuals reprieve from being removed, or deported, from the U.S. It is thought to apply to around 800,000 young people.

 

An estimated 95 percent of individuals protected by the DACA program are either studying at colleges, universities, and trade schools, are employed full-time, or both. These individuals contribute to the U.S. economy in the forms of taxes, millions of dollars paid toward college tuition, businesses they start, and the homes, cars, and other goods they purchase.

 

It is the position of the Frontera Fund that even though the prospect of deportations loom, now is not the time to panic. Now is the time to lobby the legislature for a humane, sensible policy that will benefit the U.S. economy as well as those individuals who arrived in the U.S. as children without official documentation.

How Nathaniel Ru of sweetgreen Helps People Lead Healthier Lives

As one of the founders of sweetgreen (intentionally not capitalized), Nathaniel Ru has made a commitment to running a sustainable business.

This means not just in regards to the environment but the overall operations of the company. He has said that the things you build in your life should outlast you, something that sweetgreen has as one of its core value.

Nathaniel Ru and his two business partners came up with the idea of sweetgreen while living in Washington D.C. and attending Georgetown University in their senior year.

They had all individually noted that there were no restaurants in the area that offered healthy food while also being a fun and convenient place to eat. They decided that what was then a bar in the downtown area would be a great place to try out their idea for a new type of restaurant, sweetgreen.

Under the leadership of the three co-founders of the company, sweetgreen has expanded in the last nine years into a company with restaurants across the U.S.’s Northeast as well as restaurants located in California. They practice the farm-to-table practice of serving fresh food purchased from farmers local to each restaurant location. Read more: Nathaniel Ru | Dynamic Dialogues

The company was built from the ground up with the idea of “why” at its center. Why did they want to serve fresh food? Why did they want this food bought from local farmers? It was only after answering these questions that they moved on to the “what” of the business concept.

Today, Nathaniel Ru is one of the co-CEO’s of the company. He says that at sweetgreen they do not have a headquarters and instead operate the chain in a more decentralized manner so that they stay close to their customers. He says that each restaurant in the chain is designed to appeal to the community in which it is placed rather than having one overall design for the locations.

Nathaniel Ru holds a degree in finance which he earned at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. In addition to running an environmentally sustainable business, he also uses his college education run a financially successful and sustainable one as well.

Fabletics Sets the Bar Higher Than Any Other Workout Gear Available

Before Fabletics was born, yoga enthusiasts would use plain, black or grey yoga athletic wear. Now, Fabletics has made it possible to have style while working out. Kate Hudson was approached by a team that was looking to create workout wear that would bring chic to the gym. The team decided that it was time that women feel empowered while working out and that this is hard to do with all women wearing the same colors, styles and gear. Now thanks to Fabletics, women feel better about themselves while working hard to feel good in their skin.

 

For Fabletics, they prefer the backward showroom technique. What this means is that they prefer to operate on the web instead of through a large quantity of stores scattered throughout the globe. There are a few stores that are open and for them, they allow people to come in and try things on and to purchase the items they like from in the stores and will then continue to order their items from the internet most likely.

 

Since 2013, Fabletics has been the leading brand for workout enthusiasts. They have turned the startup of the business into what is now a 250 million dollar company. This is a giant step for an actress who had absolutely nothing to do with business prior to joining Fabletics.

 

Kate Hudson is a enthusiast in all things that are healthy for you. She works out regularly and is a great role model for teens and young adults. She showcases her love through her work with Fabletics. She knows firsthand how hard it is to workout in something that is constricting or that is not made well for all body types. When she backed with Fabletics, she made it her point to ensure that all women would love working out in their new gear.

 

TechStyle Fashion Group recruited Kate Hudson to be their partner because they knew she had a love for working out and for fashion. They knew they needed someone who would bring great success to their business and knew that even though Kate had not had any business adventures prior to this, she would still do well at her job. She has maintained her presence in everything to do with the business since the launch of Fabletics. She has made it a point to stay actively involved and to know everything she needs to know to help the company continue to lead the way in workout gear.

Betsy DeVos’s Life In Conservative Educational Practices

In a time in which the nation has become more polarized than ever about equal opportunity for everyone in education, healthcare and business, Betsy DeVos has been a model of how it should be done. A longtime Michigan education reformer, DeVos has worked with charity organizations to help people of all financial backgrounds afford private and charter schools. Her work in the non-profit field became noticed by President-elect Donald Trump who chose her to become the new Secretary of Education. In February of 2017, DeVos was confirmed by a 51-50 vote to her post.

Betsy DeVos became involved in freedom of education all the way from an early age and named her mother, Elsa Prince as one of the most influential people in this area. She attended Calvin College where she received her B.A. and also was a part of many political campus activities. She became married to Dick DeVos Jr., a multilevel marketing businessman and become a mother of four children, all of whom are aspiring businesspeople including Rick and Elissa who currently serve on their company, The Windquest Group. While the DeVos’s were able to send their children to great private schools, they wanted every family in Grand Rapids to have that opportunity. Read more about her philanthropy at MLive.com.

The first way that Betsy wanted to help families was through scholarships, so she and Dick established three scholarship programs known as Children First America, Education Freedom Fund and Kids Hope USA. She also started working with the Children’s Scholarship Fund to help schools with operating costs, and also have served ont he board of the American Education Reform Council. In the later 2000’s she started programs for building charter schools throughout the state culminating with the grand opening of the West Michigan Aviation Academy, a unique charter school that instructs students in aviation, mechanics, robotics, biological sciences and general education.

Betsy DeVos has joined her husband Dick in funding political action groups and committees throughout her career, and that includes groups such as Action Institute and Heritage Foundation. She became involved in both the Republican National Committee and the Michigan State Republican Party where she served as chairperson from 1996-2000, and then again in 2004-2008. She was often known as the biggest threat to then Governor Jennifer Granholm throughout her time at this position.

After stepping down from chair of the state’s Republican party, Dick and Betsy began zeroing in on right-to-work opportunities and eventually supported legislation that was passed in 2012. The DeVos Foundation has given over $139 million in lifetime charity with $17 million going to political campaigns, including those of former President George W. Bush, 2012 candidate Mitt Romney, and 2016 primary candidates Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio. Betsy DeVos initially opposed Trump’s candidacy but then expressed honor upon being chosen to her cabinet position in November of 2016.

Hailing The New Fountain Of Youth Of The 21st Century

Personal health and longevity of life has advanced a great deal over the last 50 years. In fact, the life expectancy of both men and women has significantly increased in the last half century. This in part is because of modern medicine and an increase in understanding health. Today, through public awareness campaigns people understand and take better care of their bodies than they ever have before.

Mikhail Blagosklonny is a world renown scientist who was born and educated in Russia. He received his M.D. in the field of Internal Medicine from The First Pavlov State Medical University of St.Petersburg and went on to receive his Ph.D in Experimental Medicine from the same university. His first work in the United States started in 2002 when Mikhail was hired as the Associate Professor of Medicine at New York Medical College. He went on to become one of the senior scientists at Ordway Research Institute. In 2009, he became the professor of Oncology at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. His primary focus since earning his degrees, has been working with the predominant issues of medicine that involve: cancer, cell rejuvenation, anti-aging and cardiovascular health. Visit classroomvoices.org to read more about Mikhail.

One of his greatest medical theories has been to work on reversing the process of aging through cell regeneration. This of course was a large part of his educational background including research and development and is his defined passion in medicine. In his present work on the human body’s process of aging, Mikhail Blagosklonny has been a loud voice in the theory of reverse aging. Through his research and years of work he has become the author of what is known as “the aging hyperfunction theory”. It is his belief that the body ages throughout the whole bodily system in ways that can be reversed through the use of newly created medicines. These medicines are ones that are designed to counter the effects of aging and focus on cell regeneration and rejuvenation. This, he believes will allow people’s life expectancy to substantially increase as diseases of the body with regenerated cells become increasingly mitigated.

For most modern science, the idea of a ‘Fountain of youth drug’ seemed far-fetched. However, in 2014 with the introduction of the new drug Rapamycin by drug manufacturer Novartis, made the idea of discovering the ‘Fountain of Youth drug’, not so far off. The goal of this drug in its trial stages has been to work on cell rejuvenation and regeneration which will help delay the effects of aging and its correlation to disease throughout the body. Doing this, thereby helps older adults to live longer healthier lives. Read more on templeofthecave.com

At present, there are some side effects that requires further analysis to understand the extent of harmful side effects that the drug creates. One of the present concerns is what is known as a diabetic mimicking syndrome. Through continued trials it appears they have made progress on the drugs known side effects. On reviewing the positive analysis of Rapamycin, the drug seems to show it has positive anti-tumor, bone-sparing effects. The focus now is to understand what can be done to modify Rapamycin in ways to mitigate any significant harmful side effects for patients. Doing this will enhance the drugs overall acceptability in the world of medicine as an anti-aging, disease preventing drug that becomes more accepted, more widely distributed and prescribed for the general population.
