Tony Petrello Invites Broadway Star Tommy Tune To His Home

Tommy Tune moved a long way from home years ago when he graduated from one of Houston’s top dance schools and took center stage as a Broadway performer. Tune starred in famous productions like “Grand Hotel,” “A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine,” and “Nine” for which he was presented several Tony awards.

Ironically enough, in his return home to Houston he was welcomed by another Tony, the CEO of Nabors Industries Tony Petrello. Petrello had actually spent his childhood in a Newark, NJ neighborhood just outside of New York and later moved to Houston after joining America’s top oil drilling contractor, but his connection there is something he holds in common with Mr. Tune. The welcome home party was a gallant reception at the Petrello estate and Tune and Petrello were joined by the Miller Outdoor Theatre advisory board, the place where Tune performed at his homecoming.

Tony Petrello has a long list of responsibilities as CEO of Nabors Industries, and he can be credited with keeping the company on a schedule that’s led to billions of dollars in revenue each year. They’ve also patented some of the most advanced rigs systems in operation which include automated drilling and analytics gathering. Anthony Petrello also made a joint venture partnership with Saudi Aramco this last year and also helped bring a merger through with Tesco Corporation.

During his childhood, Tony Petrello became a brilliant student who had a great math acumen. He achieved a high GPA and gained admission to Yale University where he studied under one of the top mathematicians of his day, Serge Lange. Petrello turned a different direction upon graduating from Yale and decided to pursue law. He completed a JD, passed the bar exam and began practicing at New York law firm Baker & McKenzie in 1979. Petrello became adept at tax law and finding loopholes in transaction regulations, and it led to his being hired as chief operating officer of Nabors Industries’ Board of Directors in 1991. After holding that role for about 20 years, Petrello became CEO when Eugene Isenberg who had previously served in that position passed away. He was also nominated chairman one year later, and his compensation was also given a large bonus amount in 2013 as part of a shareholder arrangement which made him top-paid CEO of America at $68.7 million.

Desiree Perez and Negotiation Talents

Desiree Perez is also commonly called “Dez.” People who know a lot about the vibrant music scene in the United States often know exactly who she is. She’s a sedulous businesswoman who represents ROC Nation LLC with a rare combination of skill and refinement. ROC Nation is a New York, New York-based entertainment firm that was launched by the team of Jay Brown and Jay-z back in 2008. Brown is its Chief Executive Officer. Sectors of ROC Nation include Takeover ROC Nation, ROC Nation Sports and, last but not least, StarRoc.

Perez is the 47 year-old Chief Operating Officer for ROC Nation. People associate her with deals that are out of this world. She knows precisely how to land coveted deals that can be excellent for future achievement. Although Perez is associated with transactional glory, people who have been in contact with her often don’t know much about her. She frequently comes across as being quite a lady of mystery.

Perez knows famed international rapper Jay-z extremely well. She’s been a major component in the metamorphosis of his illustrious career over the years, too. Jay-z was a rapper in the beginning. He currently is something totally different. He’s a capable entrepreneur who simply knows how to do things the right way. Perez adeptly manages all kinds of negotiation requirements when other people aren’t watching. She simultaneously takes on a board meeting attitude that’s full of serenity.

This hard worker encounters famous and prominent faces all of the time. Being around household names is nothing new to her. It’s not even something she thinks about for a quick second. Perez is always around people who are familiar sights on television and in the news. She doesn’t long to be a celebrity herself, though. She doesn’t ever behave like public figure, either.

Eric Lefkofsky’s Tempus Receives $80 Million for Its Cancer Fight

Eric Lefkofsky’s name may be familiar to Groupon users as a co-founder of that business, but it’s another one of his ventures that’s been making headlines recently. Tempus, which is headed up by Eric, is known for using tech to personalize care for patients with cancer. The software developed by Tempus makes the treatment of cancer more efficient, which helps improve the effectiveness of care. Now, they have a new pool of donations upon which to improve their services.

Tempus Reports an $80 Million Boost

Mr. Lefkofsky’s cancer-fighting company must be doing something right, because it has attracted a pool of interested investors. Adding contributions to those made by existing investors, Tempus has received a total of $80 million in funding. This is in addition to the $210 million Tempus has received in funding, since its 2015 founding.

What makes this donation so exciting is that it puts the total value of Tempus close to $1.1 billion. Companies worth over $1 billion are said to have obtained “unicorn” status, because it’s an especially difficult milestone to reach. In fact, Chicago, where Tempus is based, can only lay claim to a very small handful of unicorn start-ups.

Tempus may be worth every penny of those donations, if their continued growth is any indication. While they currently have 400 employees, the size of the company expands regularly. They generally add 30 new employees each month. Mr. Lefkofsky credits the company’s strong ties to the healthcare industry for its success. He says its their ongoing relationship with hospitals, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, and insurers that helps them stay ahead of the competition.

About Eric Lefkofsky

Mr. Lefkofsky is an entrepreneur with many successful businesses to his name. In addition to co-founding Tempus and Groupon, Eric was also involved in launching Uptake Technologies, MediaOcean, Echo Global Logistics, and InnerWorkings. Eric’s talent for identifying the most promising healthcare -related tech start-ups has helped him get in on the ground floor of some of the most innovative advances.

Mr. Lefkofsky is also passionate about giving back to his community. In 2006, Eric and wife Liz launched the Lefkofsky Family Foundation to help those less fortunate in their community. Additionally, he’s a board member for several organizations, including the Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, The Art Institute of Chicago, and The Museum of Science.

Shervin Pishevar Calls AFor An Open And Transparent Society

Shervin Pishevar is an Iranian-American entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and super angel investor. He is the co-founder and former executive chairman of Hyperloop One and a co-founder and managing director of Sherpa Capital, a venture capital fund which has invested in companies including Airbnb, Uber, and Munchery.He took to twitter to call for an open and transparent society. Shervin discussed the problems with the way human beings are innovating. Unnecessary volatility is part of the issue. It compounds the current paradigm. At the heart of Shervin Pishevar’s critique is a lack of competition. This can be seen in the differences between an economy that has a small business backbone opposed to one driven by lobbying forces by way of political arenas.

Open information allows all individuals the ability to innovate. Transparency, as cryptocurrencies are showing, help sustain trust. Both aspects are necessary for any life changing innovation. The alternative would be hasty business solutions that go viral. This does not sustain human life. It may allow people to continue breathing, but it does not satisfy humanity’s soul.

Benefits of fad business solutions are also unlikely to reach all areas of the globe. A popular fad will likely die out before those most in need receive their share. Rushing to catch up with popular consensus may also lead to a lot of unnecessary conflict that destroys resources. This is the type of volatility that Shervin Pishevar warned against.

Societies that embrace innovation are preferred. The alternative is being directed by a large company, or government dictatorship, who release new products, rather than meet the needs of consumers. Diversity, instead of bottlenecks, lead to true innovation. Divergent cultures add variety to both life sustaining resources and to new products throughout the world. Incorporating distant geographic areas are important as well. Undeveloped areas, like rainforest populations, can add to modern innovation by providing a unique perspective.

Involving the entire world means using all available human resources. This is a much better solution than an isolated corporation controlling resources of unfamiliar people and living conditions. Corporate cultures often exist to differentiate themselves from competition. Planning to provide benefits through this corporate model is, in effect, taking a blind perspective to innovation. It is a reactionary business model that does not rely upon quality planning. Shervin Pishevar’s call to true innovation touches upon a dire need.

The Larkin & Lacey Frontera Foundation: Helping Those in Need

Seemingly everyday now, the top news headline has something to do with injustice happening in the United States. One of the main hotspots for injustices in America is at the boarder with Mexico; in the southern United States in states like Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.

Just recently President Trump used his first presidential pardon on Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the controversial sheriff in Maricopa County in Arizona.

A decade ago a couple of Arpaio’s controversial detainees, two journalists Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin, were arrested after they covered a story where the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office issued subpoenas for the Phoenix News Times writers, editors, and readers personal information including web browser history and IP addresses.

After having their charges dropped against them, and having their suing of Arpaio and the Maricopa County settled in court, Lacey and Larkin have been hard at work, creating and supporting organizations that try to help those advocating for civil, human, and migrant rights.

Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin have created the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Foundation and one of those groups they support is the Colibri Center for Human Rights. The Colibri Center has three main projects they work on: The Missing Migrant Project, DNA Program, and Red de Familiares.

The Missing Migrant Project has been a founding program of the Colibri Center since 2006, and is a vital part of the fight for migrant rights. The project identifies the remains of migrant workers who have died in America, and tries to reconnect the deceased with their family.

This has been the keystone project of the Colibri Center and has helped hundred of families reconnect with their loved ones who were trying to make a living in the United States. Since 1998, 6,915 men, women, and children have lost their lives trying to cross the boarder into the United States, with over 2,700 dying in the state of Arizona alone from the years 2001-2016.

Across the region, in county medical examiners offices, many unidentified remains are still waiting their final resting spot, and it is through the efforts of the Missing Migrant Project that families can find out what actually happened to their loved ones.

On record are over 2,400 records of migrant workers that have been reported missing by family members and it’s the job of the Colibri Center to find them. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/

The other two projects, the DNA Program and the Red de Familiares also help with identifying remains of undocumented citizens in the Arizona area. The DNA Program travels to different cities every year to take DNA samples of relatives of missing migrants to try and solve their cases.

Red de Familiares (translates to: Family Network) is a support group network for those who have lost loved ones trying to cross the boarder. This network helps the Colibri Center evolve with the changing needs of the families at risk.

The Return of the George Soros Liberal Agenda.

George Soros and the majority of his family members survived the Hungarian Holocaust. They remained adamant to survive from the start of the Nazi occupation of Hungary right to the end when Soros emigrated from Budapest. They preferred to conceal their Jewish identities and those of other Jewish families than dying because they were Jewish. The Soros family and those who were lucky to be helped by them survived by forging and using fake identity documents. 500,000 Hungarian Jews were not as lucky however, they died at the hands of the Germans.George Soros fled Budapest and settled in London specifically to study economics. In London, he could access a decent education despite his Jewish identity, unlike in the new Germanic Hungary. He had to work double shifts of hard labor to afford the education he acquired at the London School of Economics. He worked a manual job as a railway porter and a casual job of serving party lovers at a night club. Once done with his studies, he took his impressive skills and high Intelligence Quotient to the United States where he became a billionaire.

Soros worked hard and smart to be as influential as he is. He worked even harder and even smarter to earn the incredible amount of wealth that he owns. He had to furnish banks with impressive investment advice and to cultivate the American Economy to deserve the respect and adoration with which members of the Democratic Party view him. He worked hard to earn the degree of freedom with which he enjoys to be in a position to advance his liberal agenda through supporting the Democratic Party and opposing Republican leaders with a history or reputation for advancing racist agenda and oppressive sentiments. Soros is a staunch believer in human and civil rights for immigrants. He believes that America is the Promised Land and the leader of the free world and should, therefore, be respectful of immigrants’ rights. To hold the United States to its belief and obligation to its Constitution, George Soros is always supportive of the Democratic Party.

However, he is often more supportive than other instances only when oppressive administrations take power in the federal government. He was very vocal in his opposition to the Bush administration and reelection. During the push for a Bush re-election, Soros committed over 25 million dollars to lead the people of the United States away from a second Bush presidency. He was also very vocal at that time and adamantly rebuked President Bush for being racist and oppressive.Soros was more focused in international social philanthropy during Obama’s administration. His political philanthropy had drastically declined as he felt America was under a liberal rule. However, his political involvement and philanthropy skyrocketed when Trump won the Republic Party’s primaries for presidential candidacy. He accuses Trump of racism and intolerance and could not allow him to become president without facing a strong Soros’ opposition. He donated more than 25 million dollars to the Democratic Party and other civil and human rights groups to protest against the Trump bid for the presidency.
