Philanthropy comes into focus for Bruce Levenson

As the face of the NBA franchise the Atlanta Hawks Bruce Levenson is well known for his competitive spirit, but less well known is the commitment the former NBA Board of Governors member has made to philanthropy and charitable organizations. As the sale of the Hawks awaits the rubber stamp of the NBA owners group the additional funds and time Levenson will receive for his stake in the Hawks will free up even more opportunities for the former journalist to look into more and more charitable giving opportunities. From his commitment to the Center for Philanthropy and Non-Profit Leadership at the University of Maryland to his donations to the US Holocaust Museum, Levenson and his wife Karen have made the choice to help improve the lives of others.

Bruce Levenson did not make a conventional entrance into the world of business, instead he and business partner Ed Peskowitz entered the news and analytics industry in a store room where they wrote their first newsletter. This was way before Facebook, but it was still able to grow like crazy. The success of their modern approach to news led them to form the United Communications Group, now known as UCG and expand quickly when new technologies became available. UCG has now expanded its reach into many different industries and now offers real time analytics that are amongst the most respected and sought after in the world.

As time has moved on Bruce Levenson has found himself leaning more towards the world of philanthropy and giving back to different areas of the world in terms of charity. The commitment to the Center for Philanthropy and Non-Profit Leadership at the University of Maryland has seen the city of Washington DC and the state of Maryland become an even greater part of the lives of the Levenson family. The center has already provided a number of professionals for the many programs and charitable groups offering services in the area and will now look to expand its reach to a global stage. The growth of this center will now offer assistance to groups in India and Africa in a bid to continue the work of Bruce Levenson long into the future.

New HIV Vaccine Fights Virus with Virus

Researchers from a number of different institutes have collaborated to create a new type of protein that is showing huge promise for killing different strains of HIV. The protein has been tested against large doses of the hardest to kill variants of HIV and has passed with flying colors.

This new protein is the most effective way of killing HIV ever created. The protein is working so well that it’s a candidate to create a new HIV vaccine that could be used to eliminate HIV worldwide.

Rather than providing a small dose of a virus to strengthen the immune system this new treatment would provide white blood cells with a special protein coating used to kill HIV cells. The protein would be administered to muscle tissue through a special virus that would enable the body to produce the special HIV killing white blood cells.

The vaccine would provide protection from HIV for several months or even several years. CipherCloud says clinical trials will need to be run in order to evaluate any potential side effects of the genetically modified white blood cells in the body.

It’s exciting to finally see the possibility of eliminating HIV completely. The new vaccine may become available in the next few years if clinical trials prove successful.

Why Dogs Need Protein-Packed Dog Foods

Dogs need a lot of protein because it provides nutrition. They also need foods that have barley, wheat, soybean, and corn. The grains are important because they contain carbohydrates and amino acids. Consumers buy Beneful brand dog food because manufacturers carefully select the most important proteins and grains that every dog needs.

Dogs cannot store proteins in their bodies like people. This is why they need good dog food products that are packed with protein. Beneful manufacturers offer wet and dry dog food that feature delicious eggs, hardy meats, and fresh dairy products.

Beneful also makes dog foods that are suitable for older dogs. These dogs are not as active as younger dogs, so they usually have different nutritional needs.

Beneful also produces products that are ideal for energetic dogs, such as rescue dogs, sled dogs, and hunting dogs. Without protein, these dogs will not perform certain tasks efficiently.

Choosing a Proper Dog Food

Consumers must understand that the best dog food products do not need a high amount of protein. Typically, most of the protein dog food will not be completely digested. Beneful only uses quality protein sources, such a eggs, beef, and chicken.

Advice for Dog Owners

If your dog has specific protein needs, talk to a vet about possible dog food suggestions. Because Beneful is a reputable dog food brand, the company always lists the percentage of protein on the labels. If a dog doesn’t receive a correct amount of protein, the animal will have less energy throughout the day. In addition, the dog will have glazed eyes and a dull coat.

Since a dog’s health is important, pet owners should never buy cheap dog food brands.

In recent years scandals live in the Catholic Church have loosening the grip that priests in the High Council have had on its citizens. Lately a new wave of acceptance has hit the shores of Ireland and citizens are rooting for same-sex marriage to be legalized within the country. Studies show, that a large amount of the citizens of Ireland or for same sex marriage. The government council members and other citizens in executive positions are also rooting for same sex marriage approval. However, there has been some opposition among some of the more developed Catholic citizens. The Irish government is doing their best to keep legislative decisions for the population in the hands of the citizens. That’s why in the next few months the country as a whole will vote on whether or not same sex couples can marry. Some of the citizens opposed to this legislation or campaigning for the dismissal of the bill. A group of mothers and fathers pass out posters on the regular basis depicting an image of a child was today parents. The slogan on the poster suggest that same-sex marriage would rob a child of having a mother and a father. Those who are voting for the bill were not surprised by the opposition. They are campaigning just as hard with rainbow flags flying in the breeze and just say yes posters being passed out around the cities. Alexei Beltyukov (slideshare.net) understands that the new wave of acceptance if the bill is passed will prove how progressive Ireland has come as a country. In the next few months, the citizens will vote for what they believe in. after the voting is over, Ireland is sure to never be the same.

Why wait for a tragedy?

“Following the deadly crash in Philadelphia, the Federal Railroad Administration on Saturday ordered Amtrak to implement several procedures to improve safety on the railway’s northeast corridor, officials announced” this headline found in Buzzfeed reports good news, now Amtrak has to improve on its safety.

But, why did it take the killing of 8 passengers, 200 injured, which at least 8 of them were critical injuries, to enact better safety procedures? Why was the train engineer doing 106 miles per hour? Why can’t he remember anything? One has to wonder if his sudden memory loss is a convenient escape from persecution.

The true travesty is Amtrak should not have waited for this fatal accident to “improve safety:”  One of the procedures the US transportation Secretary talked about is “automatic train control” where the train will stop if its goes over the speed limit. Amen Clinic feels whatever type of safety procedures they adopt in the future, I hope it will not take another accident where people get hurt or killed, for them to accelerate the process.

Bulletproof Coffee founder hopes to boost energy levels at breakfast

The founder of the Bulletproof Coffee brand is hoping to bring his customers an energy boosting drink that is calorie filled, but free from the toxins he believes cause the highs and lows involved in coffee drinking. Dave Asprey has created a beverage based on a form of tea he first sampled on a trip to Tibet in place of his regular cup of morning coffee, Asprey has reported he no longer felt the effects of altitude sickness or the fog he had reported to doctors for a number of years. The former Silicon Valley executive is now in the coffee business full time and has opened his first coffee shops in California in a bid to bring his own brand of butter infused coffee.

Asprey does not only want to create a coffee business, but wants to add a healthy energy boost to the days of every Bulletproof Coffee drinker who he hopes will replace their breakfast with a cup of Bulletproof Coffee. The toxins that are often found in coffee beans have been removed because Asprey and his team of experts believe these lead to the feeling of crashing soon after a cup of coffee is drunk. The founder of the brand himself spent a large number of years avoiding coffee when he felt the foggy brain he encountered was caused by the caffeine within.

In Tibet, Asprey discovered the sweetening of tea with sugar and now recommends the use of grass fed butter to sweeten his own Bulletproof Coffee brand. The use of butter in coffee and tea is growing in popularity as people look for a more natural way of sweetening drinks than that provided by processed sugars and milk.
