The Growth Of The OSI Group: An Inspiring American Success Story

At the turn of the last century, Otto Kolschowsky, an immigrant from Germany, founded a butcher shop in the Chicago area. The shop, later called Otto & Sons, developed a reputation for offering excellent cuts of meats. Soon Otto & Sons was supplying wholesale meat to supermarkets, restaurants and private label brands throughout Illinois. The company began experiencing meteoritic growth when they agreed to provide Ray Kroc with ground beef for his McDonald’s franchise beginning in 1955. Soon afterwards Otto & Sons had to create Glenmark, a subsidiary which handled the company’s customers other than McDonald’s.

After purchasing cryogenic flash freezing equipment and moving into larger facilities in the 1960s, Otto & Sons was ready to expand even more in the 1970s. They turned to Sheldon Lavin and his company for help with financing. Lavin got them the money and remained closely involved with the company. By the late 1970s, Otto Kolschowsky and his sons had retired and Lavin owned a majority of the company’s stock, so he took over. The company’s name was changed to the OSI Group in 1975 to signify its transformation into a technologically advanced business and Lavin set them on a course for international expansion.

Lavin put lots of emphasis on Asia and its huge population. The OSI Group entered joint ventures with several companies in China, Japan, the Philippines and Taiwan. The company also constructed 10 facilities for processing poultry in China and built facilities in the cities of Bangalore and Punjab in India. The company even began providing meat, fish, dough and vegetable products to Burger King, Papa John’s Pizza, Saizeriya, Yum, Subway, Starbucks and other western fast food franchises doing business in China. It also became China’s largest producer of poultry products.

But with all the company’s growth and international expansion, it continues to focus on producing the best tasting, most nutritious products using excellent environmental management practices. That focus on proper environmental stewardship resulted in the OSI Group winning the Globe of Honor awarded by the British Safety Council, the California Green Business Award and the Environmental Recognition Award handed out by the North American Meat Institute. The company has also won the enduring love of it 20,000 employees for the great worker safety and benefits programs it put in place.

In addition to all that, the OSI Group has the gratitude of consumers in 85 countries who enjoy their products.

Sahm Adrangi Talks About the Big Picture of Kodak

Sahm Adrangi Talks About the Big Picture of Kodak

Sahm Adrangi is an expert when it comes to predicting a company’s failure. This is why so many investors have listened to his warnings that the KodakOne and KodakCoin systems have fundamental problems that will not allow them to achieve success. While Kodak’s shares have risen dramatically since the announcement of KodakOne and KodakCoin, Sahm Adrangi believes the hype is unjustified and many investors will lose money.

The lead developing team behind KodakOne is Wenn Digital Inc. while Appcoin is acting as the strategic advisor for the KodakCoin project. Both of these companies have rather dubious reputations when it comes to their practices and this leads Sahm Adrangi to be concerned about the well being of the investors’ money. One of the acts that led to Sahm Adrangi’s suspicions is the looming possibility of an SEC Investigation towards Kodak after the board of directors for the company allowed themselves to purchase restricted stock just one day before Kodak made their announcement of KodakOne. He does not see the partnerships that Kodak announced will keep the company from experiencing declining revenues and the risk of default.

Sahm Adrangi’s Kerrisdale Capital went on record with a negative report on the company earlier this year. It was coupled with an explanation as to why the Kerrisdale Capital has chosen to short the stocks of the company Eastman Kodak Company. This came after Kodak’s announcement that they were releasing KodakOne and KodakCoin which are an image-licensing platform that is enabled with blockchain technology as well their own cryptocurrency. To Sahm Adrangi, these projects are just Kodak’s way to capitalize off of the popularity of ICOs. These attempts will not work to save Kodak’s bottom line in the long run, Sahm Adrangi believes the company is built on a capital structure that is not sustainable. By shorting the Kodak Stock, Kerrisdale Capital and their clients stand to make a lot of money if the prices of the shares fall as Kerrisdale predicts they will.

Adam Milstein Defends Israel

As a member of the Israeli Defense Forces during the Yom Kippur War, Adam Milstein followed Arial Sharon defending Israel. As an Israeli living in America, Adam Milstein continues to act in defense of Israel. Since his retirement as a managing partner of a multi-million dollar commercial real estate management firm, he has acted as an author and public speaker pointing out threats to the Jewish homeland and helping to strengthen American – Israeli relations.

In addition to the ancient threat of blatant anti-Semitism, a much newer threat to Jews worldwide is the alliance between Islamic fundamentalists and left-wing radicals. For years, the political left has been diametrically opposed to Islamic values and beliefs. Throughout the Middle East, in mosques and orphanages masquerading as religious schools, their young people are indoctrinated into an extremist form of Islam. Meanwhile, on college campuses across America, our young people are indoctrinated into extreme left-wing philosophies. Today, left-wing Americans have decided to put aside the differences with Islam, including:

* the arrests and brutalization of women not dressing modestly enough

* the arrest and imprisonment of any political opposition

* suppressing free speech and political action

Over the last few years, radicals from both extremes have decided to coordinate their actions with those of Islam. They portray Jews as a dominant group influencing world events to subjugate Muslims, who are portrayed as proud but weak and ineffectual.

This new alliance centers itself on college campuses, where Jews are depicted as white supremacists illegally occupying appropriated lands. Students at Tufts University, a private research university in Medford, Massachusetts issued a “Disorientation Guide,” defaming Israel.

In speeches before a variety of groups, and writing for a large assortment of print media, Adam Milstein warned about old anti-Semitic threats combining with new ones. In a recent article in the Jewish News Syndicate, Adam Milstein warns of anti-Semitism coming for diverse sources and traditions and “sharing ideas and tactics,” to strengthen a worldwide” wave of hate, bigotry, and racism.”

Paul Mampilly Warns Of A Coming Bitcoin Crash

Over the course of a career beginning in 1991, Paul Mampilly has learned every boom must be followed by a crash of some sort and has recently warned of the problems he sees beginning as the Bitcoin bubble grows. Cryptocurrencies have shown themselves to be a consistently rising option for those interested in creating a successful investment portfolio over the last few months when the value of each coin mined using complex algorithms jumped to an unheard of $19,000 per coin; one of the world’s leading investment specialists decided this was the moment to warn investors to sell their cryptocurrencies before the bubble he believes has been developed bursts.

Paul Mampilly admits a certain amount of uncertainty is seen with any decision about when to sell a successful investment but the growing level of uncertainty about Bitcoin means this has become the perfect time to sell off cryptocurrencies before they fall to pre-boom levels. As a former winner of the Templeton Foundation, Paul Mampilly believes the Bitcoin bubble is about to burst and feels his role as an investment advisor provides him with the need to explain his position to those who follow his advice and those who are looking for assistance with their financial situation.

After carefully examining the position of Bitcoin, Paul Mampilly believes a bubble is growing around the cryptocurrency and this will not be a long-term option for creating a successful investment portfolio. Paul Mampilly believes the growing level of success many investors are seeing from investments of just $10,000 which are now worth around $190,000 will eventually crash in value leaving those who feel the natural impulse for greed to overcome the analytics which states the bubble will soon burst.

An ever-expanding market for Bitcoin has been growing over the curse of 2017 which has been highlighted by a growing number of successful, established companies embarking on Bitcoin mining as they feel this will lead to greater profits; in this way, the growing Bitcoin market is reminiscent of the tech sector crash of 1999. Paul Mampilly survived the tech crash of 1999 without losing a cent of his personal funds by removing himself from the market long before the bubble burst.

David Giertz Speaks About Retirement Planning

David Gertz, one of the most progressive leaders today, schooled at Millikin University graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree and later proceeded to The University of Miami where he got his MBA. He has over 30 years of experience in the financial industry. David worked at Nationwide Investment Services Corporation based in Ohio where he was a broker dealing with securities trading. David has successfully completed and passed four professional certification examinations in this field.

David has served in various financial institutions over the years. Starting April 2013, he worked at Nationwide Life Insurance Company as Senior Vice President-Nationwide Financial Distribution and Sales. He also served as President, Senior Vice President, and Director at several nationwide corporations between 2004 and 2013. He is famously known for the billions of dollars he has generated from revenues over the years. Other than his work, he is involved in charitable community projects.

In an interview, David talks about planning for retirement which requires one to start early especially those aiming for early retirements before the age of 65. He emphasizes that no matter the paycheck one earns, saving for retirement is not easy and it is important to look into other income generating projects to ensure that the savings are enough for the entire duration of retirement. The key, he says, is to have saved 13-15 times your yearly income by the normal retirement age.

David Giertz says that the best idea is to seek advice from a financial expert on the best way to invest. He recommends a brokerage account with access to securities that can be traded for profits. Furthermore, such accounts are flexible; they do not limit withdrawals. Lastly, he recommends saving some in a health savings account as retirement comes with significant medical costs.
