End Citizens United Endorses Lamb

While Republican candidate Rick Saccone has dominated the campaigns due to support from outside spending groups and conservative heavyweights, his rival Conor Lamb is already warming up thanks to an endorsement from End Citizens United. End Citizens United is a political action committee that hopes to end the corporate political spending on campaigns. Conor hopes to use this new development as an advantage against his opponent. This only adds on to the interesting facts around the special election as they will be vying to replace Republican Tim Murphy. Murphy resign after reports of him encouraging his mistress to have an abortion following an extramarital affair.

The Leadership Scope

The president of End Citizens United Tiffany Muller in a statement in which the group was endorsing Conor stated that their preferred candidate was running so that he could stand up for the families who were becoming victims of a rigged system. She reinforced her group’s dedication to fighting any malicious special interests that she believed were trying to buy the race. During this announcement, Conor Lamb showed exactly why he was the group’s preferred candidate by announcing that he would not accept any monetary handouts from corporate-funded political action committees. However, he can still accept contributions from committees such as End Citizens United, which is funded not funded by executives of corporates but rather, by rank-and-file workers.

Support System

Mr. Saccone is also making significant progress while at the same time enjoying heavily funded air and ground campaigns. The group 45Committee that backs President Trump’s agenda offered their support by pouring in $500,000 for a campaign that faults his opponent, Conor. In the ad that was funded, the Republican is faulted for opposing the Republican tax-cut bill that is a hot topic of the republican and conservative sides.


End Citizens United has been able to raise up to $600,000 for the Alabama campaign of candidate Doug Jones who was vying for Senate. However, it remains unclear if the group will be able to do the same for the race in Pennsylvania. The race is complicated because it involves races both in the state and country. The spokesman for End Citizens, however, maintains a positive attitude citing that they are energized from the grassroots and that this year will not be any different.

More About End Citizens United

End Citizens United is a political action committee that was formed as a response to the Citizens United ruling. The grassroots donor-funded group aims at overturning this ruling and ending all sorts of corporate spending on political campaigns. Founded on 1st March 2015, the group has managed to remain active and has backed candidates who like them, believe that corporates spending on the election leads to buying of the election.

What Are Trabucos?

Trabuco was a weapon used in the Middle Ages in the time of war. It was used to throw huge stones over walls much like a catapult. During war, the opposing country could throw 140 kilos at extreme speeds over the adversary’s heads from 800 meters away flawlessly. A gruesome act also happened during war. They would fling very sick people to the enemy in hopes they would get sick too.

Trabucos were created in China around 400 BC. In 600 AD Europe started using Trabucos during their wars. The practice of using them stopped when gunpowder was invented. The difference between catapults and Trabuco was that it was simpler to use and it was easier to make. The way the war machines work were transforming potential energy into kinetic energy. The counterweight was equivalent to the momentum of the projectile so the weightier the counterweight was, the projectile would be more powerful.

The well-known case of a trabuco being used in a battle was when Wu Jing Yao de Zong was in power according to pt.wikipedia.org. His army flung a 140 pound stone at 80 meters. Charles VII of France had one made that could launch 800 kilos in the air. Even 1500 kilos have used in a trabuco in 1148. The longest distance a projectile was thrown was 300 meters. Louis IX of France had used 24 trabucos during his battle in 1249 on infopedia.pt.

Trabucos are used today to teach people the elementals of mechanics. They are used in historical reenactments and pumpkin throwing championships. In 2005, a 22-ton trabuco was built. It is located at the Warwick Castle in England. The height of it is 18 meters high and it can launch 36kg in the air from 300 meters. Rebels during the Syrian Civil war were seen using a trabuco to fling explosives at troops. In Ukraine, rioters used trabucos to fling bricks and cocktails at their enemy.

Oncotarget: Targeting Aging Cells and Medical Publishings

Established in 2010, Oncotarget has grown to become one of the biggest and notable bio medical journals in the world. Published by Impact Journals, the twice weekly journals combine an array of medical research and oncology related literary content for readers. Follow Oncotarget on Twitter.

The group conducted one of the largest medical related summits in 2015. Medical professionals, researchers and students gathered in London. U.K to discuss the biology of aging. The summit provided a platform for professionals to share their extensive knowledge as well as discuss a host of ideas amongst their peers. Taking place in February of 2015, the information gathered that day has helped propel the research put into the field of cell aging. Follow Oncotarget on Linkedin.

The summit was split into four major sections, allowing guest to gather their thoughts and provide well receptive feedback. The aging of the brain, slowing down progression, self repair and age related diseases were the major key speaking points at the summit.

Following the previous success of their summit, the team at Oncotarget has recently dominated medical headlines for another possible medical breakthrough publishing. The group produced combined hours of research and presented the results of a Harvard Medical School team and its possible therapeutic strategy to treat drug resistant strands of thyroid cancer.

The results concluded that a FDA approved drug used formally to treat breast cancer, Palbociclib may be able to withstand resistance. Once coupled with Vemurafenib, the combination works effectively to prevent reoccurring cancer cells from splitting and mutating. Together the drugs also induce a stronger cell death rate than each could do on its own separately.

As the treatment is tested in clinical trials, studies further support the therapeutic strategy of both drugs used together for thyroid cancer treatment. By assisting in eliminating existing cancer cells and the prevention of possible new mutated cells from forming, patients are able to increase their chances of survival against the specifically targeted thyroid cancer.

Adam Milstein Exposes Who Enemies Of Jewish And Israeli Community Are

Adam Milstein is the Managing Partner of one of Los Angeles’s largest Jewish-American owned real estate investment companies, Hager Pacific Properties. He’s also President of the Israeli-American Council and an author for the Jerusalem Post, and he wrote an article recently about who is promoting anti-Semitism around the world. He works to combat both anti-Israeli speech and anti-Semitic activities on college campuses and to encourage support for his native land through his philanthropy events.

According to Adam Milstein, a major source of today’s anti-Semitism is coming from radical Islam in conjunction with people on the progressive political left. For Milstein, it’s important that young Jewish college students and community leaders be aware of these people and have a plan to counter it. Milstein specifically mentioned Vermont senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders as having alliances with certain anti-Israeli propaganda groups. Milstein himself doesn’t consider himself to be on either side of politics, though one of his recent philanthropy supporters is Sheldon Adelson, a conservative donor.

Adam Milstein comes from Israel and was born just four years after its establishment in 1948. He served in the Israeli military during the Yom Kippur War, and afterward pursued his bachelor’s degree at the Technion. He also married Gila Elgrably not long after and for a few years he worked with his father in building framing and real estate investing. He then got his MBA from University of Southern California and went full-time into real estate brokering and helped launch Hager Pacific Properties along with David Hager and Robert Neal. Milstein is in charge of financing major commercial and residential property purchases.

Adam Milstein is head of both the Milstein Family Foundation and the Israeli-American Council. He and Gila don’t just give financial support to the groups they support, but are also actively involved in the group’s activities.

The Milsteins also help connect Jewish families to their roots through a Hebrew learning program that also has bedtime stories for children and more

Boraie Development Is Now Rebuilding Atlantic City’s Housing Spaces

Boraie Development is one of New Jersey’s top construction companies that has been building new commercial and residential buildings in partnership with private contractors, government agencies and non-profit urban development organizations. Right now they’re building new apartments in Atlantic City as part of their new Beach at South Inlet condominium. Atlantic City is experiencing some demographic shifts and also may be looking for new attractions to sell tourists and college students as many of its casinos have closed down recently. But as new businesses are starting to be brought in, Boraie Development says that its apartments that have a lot of modern features that will fit what most younger tenants are looking for in their housing.

Boraie Development is run by Omar Boraie and his two sons Wasseem and Sam, and his daughter Hia also has administrative responsibilities there. Omar Boraie started the company in New Brunswick, NJ during a time that the city’s economy was collapsing, and the downtown neighborhoods were becoming abandoned and crime-ridden. While even some of the top local real estate companies at the time were calling the city a lost case, Omar Boraie wasn’t and one reason he felt he could invest in downtown properties and do something with them was because the city’s top health provider Johnson & Johnson announced they would stay in New Brunswick. So Boraie started buying the properties and beginning with Albany Street turned them into brand shiny new spaces. Check out Bloomberg to see more.

Albany Street was Omar Boraie’s first purchase and there he took an abandoned 8-story building and parking garage and put his company headquarters surrounded by other company offices and small shops and started bringing traffic back to the area. That 8-story building was tower one, and Boraie soon put up tower two which brought more of the same and soon the whole plaza was looking much different than the dilapidated lot that Boraie had found it. The company soon was hired to take on more contracts, and soon they moved in on New Brunswick’s residential properties and introduced a Manhattan-style high rise on Spring Street that brought in some of the first modern housing, and it became leased out in a very short time. More housing would follow with construction of The Aspire, and the Beach at South Inlet is the latest of these projects. Boraie Development also happens to be a donor to Rutgers University’s Genomics Science Lab, and Rutgers awarded Omar Boraie the Omar Boraie Chair on the University’s board.

What Made Medicine in Brazil so Great, with Jorge Moll

Brazilians have agreed on one thing: National medicine has come a long way in 50 years.

Those who have experienced mid-20th century known that hospitals were not in such a good condition as they are today. Commercial centers like São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, the two most significant states of the country, now have some of the best hospitals and healthcare institutions in Latin America.

This strong performance can be related to two major assets: The medical education of Brazilian Universities and the development of new technology to be used in clinics and for healthcare treatments and therapies. Learn more about Jorge Moll at Google Scholar.

The Brazilian education has some of the best Universities in Latin America, mainly USP, the best University of the country, which is located in the São Paulo capital; UniCamp, located in Campinas, one of the best Medical Schools of South America, and Unesp, which is also a very well-developed institution. Most of the Brazilian medics, surgeons, and doctors of reputation have studied in these facilities for being free and having some of the best professors and materials for research.

This, coupled together with technology, has resulted in a very drastic improvement in medicine and the healthcare industry.

Jorge Moll, the co-founder, and owner of the D’Or Hospitals network, which is simply the biggest chain of private hospitals in the country, having a total of 32 buildings scattered around Brazil, has stated his own opinions on the development of new technology to be used in clinics. Follow Jorge on linkedin.com.

As a Cardiologist himself, who has experienced treatments without modern tools and with them, Jorge Moll can say, with confidence, that technology can definitely improve the performance and effectiveness of therapies. Exams become easier to perform, with quicker and real-time results; professionals and doctors don’t have to rely on their senses anymore with advanced sensors and machinery; and patients can feel more comfortable and safe with tablets that can call nurses if help is required, and smartphones with applications that can measure the temperature and the heartbeat of the user.

With medicine, Jorge Moll firmly believes that technology will be mandatory. In that aspect, Brazil has already improved, and will continue to do so if both quality education and modern solutions are available.
