Seventeen Million Awarded to Whistleblower

While few people truly want to put themselves out on the line and become a SEC whistleblower, based on the fact that there is a huge amount of turmoil that can come as a result, the plight of a whistleblower has become a lot less rocky. Six years ago, the Securities Exchange Commission enacted the whistleblower program, which lays out a bunch of protections for anyone that makes the decision to become a whistleblower. The basis of these protections are against any backlash from a company that may be getting exposed for corruption. This is extremely important to any potential person coming forward with this type of information, as many whistleblowers in the past have received a lot of intimidation and harassment from their employers, who were on the hook and being exposed. Not only are whistleblowers now protected from these types of things, but there is a great deal of money that can now be awarded to anyone that comes forward with information, which leads to sanctions against a company or organization. For example, if a person decides to shed light on something that is corrupt and sanctions are levied against that business or organization, the whistleblower will then be able to receive up to thirty percent of the overall sanctions. The SEC ends up saving a huge amount of money when these types of people come forward, while they are also cleaning up corruptio and providing protection and monetary incentives to whistleblowers.

The road may be a lot easier for whistleblowers, but in order to have a smooth case, obtaining an SEC whistleblower attorney is absolutely vital. There are plenty of lawyers out there that deal with a wide variety of cases, but finding an SEC whistleblower lawyer that works directly with these types of cases, day in and day out is crucial. There are so many people that have started coming out as whistleblowers these days that attorneys and even entire law firms have started to take on these cases full time. Because of this, you can get yourself a huge advantage by finding a lawyer that only deals with whistleblower cases. A recent case paid out seventeen million dollars to a whistelblower that decided to come forward, making this the second largest amount of money paid out. While seventeen million dollars may seem like a massive amount of money for this type of thing, the program has only been in force for a period of six years, so there are likely going to be many more huge payouts in the future. Jordan A. Thomas was able to get his client a huge amount of money in this instance, but you can bet there are more settlements to come.

Thor Halvorssen – Human Rights Activist like no other

Thor Halvorssen is a human rights activist extraordinaire. He is the founder of the Human rights Foundations and the Oslo Freedom Forum which is a one of a kind unification forum for human rights activists and hailed by The Economist the greatest of its kind.

He works almost round the clock, depending on medication to get him some sleep. Medication that doesn’t seem to be doing its work properly.

Born to distinguished and well respected parents with not a worry in the world, Thor Halvorssen has seen his father being imprisoned and mother being shot for no faults of their own. He knows how suffering changes humans and you know that he does when he says. “I love humans”.

The most recent passion that he and his comrades share at the Human Rights Foundation is to free the North Korean people from the tyranny of the Kims. This is a task that even the strongest in the world will not think of taking without a second thought. Read more: Thor Halvorssen – Crunchbase

After all, a movie mocking the dictator found it hard to hit the theatres across the world. But Thor Halvorssen is no everyday activist. There has been an assassination attempt on him already, but Thor wouldn’t care. Learn more about Thor Halvorssen: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1812816/

He is different than other run of the mill activists in the way he talks and the way he operates. He would send balloons full of leaflets to North Korea, he would not miss the chance to take a celebrity to task if so he deserves and he and his team would hack the websites of human riots violators, especially the North Koreans.

To his friends and comrades, Thor is not a speaker but a doer. He was an active participant in the balloon event mentioned above. He personally went to the North Korea border to inflate large hydrogen balloons, fill them with anti-Kim material and send them hopefully to people in North Korea.

Thor is not the one who, being the founding leader, would strategize and let his men do the work. He will take it upon himself to be in the thick of the action. No wonder he is unable to sleep, there is so much to do!

Ground-Breaking ClassDojo

Technology has impacted human beings in all aspects of life. Technology is seen in almost every workplace, in schools, in hospitals, in financial institutions, among other places. Major innovations have happened in the use of technology to advance the education of school-going children. An article published on 15th, April 2016, on Tech crunch website showed an example of what technology has done in the education system.

The article discussed a funding by classDojo, a communication platform that mainly engages teachers, parents, and students to improve school performance. It gave a funding of 21million dollars in support of an application that aims to eliminate the time teachers and parents spend in solving issues of their children. The application would enable educators and parents to keep in touch and monitor performance of the children at school.

The regular communication would be a major step as parents would be updated on what happens each day, week, month or year with their children. Initially, these updates are only done once per semester. According to the editorial, the two co-founders of classDojo, Mr. Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary, the funding is aimed at growing the company. They also aim to do more research on the kind of features and contents that would be useful and relevant to the parents and teachers.

One of the founders said that the app should be able to guide parents on the type of conversations they should have with their children after school, in order to enhance the development and general learning of the children. Teachers can let parents know of the school schedules, take photos and videos of children as they take part in the school activities.

About classDojo
Founded in 2011, the company’s main mission is to give parents, educators, and learners the opportunity to change learning from the ground up. Today, the platform is used by at least 2 out of 3 schools in the United States, and in other 180 nations around the world.
ClassDojo creates a community of teachers, students, and parents, who are connected and empowered to make the necessary changes in the education sector. The application creates a community connected by a shared belief that education can only be improved if they work together as one force and create a positive culture with classrooms and schools. In short, classDojo has helped teachers and parents to bring nearly all progressive initiatives in education easily into the classroom in ways that are appealing to the students.

Scientists Gaining Significantly From The Wessex Institute

The Wessex Institute of Technology has been helping scientists to better communicate for several decades now. The institute was established in 1986 and has been hosting conferences since then in order to bringing the scientific community closer together. Every year the institute hosts more than 20 different conferences. One of the conferences that was organized in 2015 was the materials characterization conference. It was the seventh of its kind to happen and it was mainly concentrated on computation experiments and methods in materials characterization. It was held towards the end of April in Valencia, Spain. There were invited presentations on different subjects from Professor Derek Northwood from the University of Windsor in Canada and Professor Kazuto Tanaka, who is from Doshisha University in Japan. In addition to talks by Tanaka and Northwood, the conference also covered cementitious materials and corrosion problems.

How Intelligent Lighting is paving the Way for Internet of Buildings

LED lights are the cutting-edge technology in energy effective lighting. LED is a semiconductor device, which transforms electricity into light. These solid-state lighting devices have revolutionized the way people light the world by phasing out traditional sources across each section of the worldwide lighting market. Billions of sockets are expected to be operational over the next couple of years.

This transition has triggered a fresh phase of LED adoption – the contest to connect every socket. The risks will be high for both the vendors and consumers. Qualities such as ubiquity, power access, and network connectivity make intelligent lights an ideal platform for introducing the Internet of Things (IoT). The race to own sockets is a competition among vendors to see who will be in charge of IoT’s infrastructure across the built environment.

Away from simple illumination, the Internet of Buildings created on top of cutting-edge lighting systems will entirely change the way people interact with the places in which they live. For instance, biometric sensors will specialize in tracking students’ alertness, slightly shifting spectrum to enhance their focus automatically when it begins to decrease. Additionally, the lights around your building will be intelligent, deciphering data produced by your wearable devices – utilizing light to de-stress you after a long and tiresome day.

About Gooee

Gooee is the founder of the world’s first fully integrated operating platform that links lighting manufacturers to the IoT. It focuses on designing, production, and supplying hardware, software, as well as data management components. Gooee offers ASICs (sensing), real-time control, Wireless Interface Modules and API management platform to control metering and smart lighting products. The company has a team of experienced LED and Semiconductor professionals.

Nutrimost Files Federal Lawsuit Against Rival Healthy Living Over Stolen Video

Healthy Living was recently slapped with a Federal Lawsuit by weight loss rival Nutrimost over a stolen promotional video that was placed on Healthy Living’s website can’tlosediet.com, and Nutrimost wants them to pay up.

Healthy Living removed any and all references to Nutrimost and replaced those references with “Can’t Lose Diet”. Customer testimonials were spared and used on the Healthy Living version of the video, as well as a testimonial by the founder of the weight loss system, Dr. Ray Wisniewski.

When comparing the videos, they are the same in their claims. They both claim for the patient to lose between 25 and 45 pounds, or even more, in 40 days. No unsafe drugs are used in either advertised program, and there is no hormone use either to accelerate weight loss.

A defiant Healthy Living disregarded a cease-and-desist order from the courts to stop showing the video. They did make one slight change, and that was the length of the video. It does seem that now, the video shown by Healthy Living hasn’t been on their website.

Nutrimost is looking for Healthy Living to pay over $300,000 in damages for loss of “goodwill and reputation”, and is asking the court to take steps so that the pirated promotional video will never be shown again.

The progressive and popular weight loss system by Nutrimost, who calls themselves the “Ultimate Fat Loss System”, states a person, without feeling hungry or exercising, can lose up to 40 pounds of weight in as little as 40 days. There are no drugs being administered, and there is no surgery required.

Dr. Ray Wisniewski, the founder of the program for Nutrimost, practices “pastoral medicine”. This medicine is the combination of leading science with spiritual health wisdom and understanding.
