Dr. Avi Weisfogel, Sleep Apnea Treatment Pioneer

Medical scientists and practitioners have long known that sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, are not only uncomfortable and inconvenient, but that these maladies may also lead to other, more severe health problems, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. With this in mind, the medical community is taking great strides to simplify, and improve, the treatment of sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea.

Currently, the most-used treatments for sleep disorders are bulky, intrusive, and can be difficult to use on a nightly basis. Dr Avi Weisfogel, is among the practitioners working toward smaller, sleeker, and more user-friendly devices to effectively combat sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. Unfortunately, the cumbersome nature of commonly used devices can inhibit patients from seeking treatment.

Implantable devices, on the other hand, are much smaller in size, and do not require the patient to use any masks or noisy machinery. Dr. Avi Weisfogel, has greatly contributed to the start of primary care physicians working with dentists to achieve better results for sleep apnea patients. Including dental health in the pursuit of better treatments for sleep disorders, is a fairly new concept, but one that has yielded important results.

Dr. Avi Weisfogel has long been a pioneer in this field, and through his work as the Founder of Dental Sleep Masters in 2014, has brought dentists into the care and treatment of sleep disorder sufferers. Avi established his first practice, Old Bridge Dental Care, in 1999. It was there, that he began to explore the possibilities of doctors and dentists working together to combat sleep disorders such as sleep apnea.

A graduate of Rutgers University, and New York University College of Dentistry, Dr. Weisfogel is dedicated to improving his patients’ lives through advancements in the treatments for sleep apnea and other sleep disorders. His dedication and commitment to helping others to overcome the suffering of sleep disorders, has been, and continues to be, his life’s work.

ClassDojo Emerges winner for its School and Class Story Series at the Fast Company Annual Awards

ClassDojo is a mobile phone application that features, among other products, Class and School stories. Fast Company received 1700 applications and through rigorous expert panel review, class dojo emerged victorious. The phone application forms a communication stage or platform to allow parents, students and teachers to cooperate and share classroom stuff and experiences. Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary in San Francisco founded the phone application company in 2011. The establishment has so far created multimillion-project funding and adjusted from an Imagine K12 education technology accelerator to a Y-Combinator.

Free Mobile Applications

In America, there are other several education grade books, testing platforms and technology businesses that create digital programs. However, ClassDojo creators wanted a free and comprehensible mobile application that created a community culture among parents, teachers, and students.

ClassDojo mobile application also offers parents the chance to pay for videos, institution yearbooks, discussion lessons and guides that they utilize with their children at home. The mobile application tries to enhance the teacher and parent need to offer possible children life accomplishments. The proposal allows students to share text messages, photos and videos with their parents regarding ongoing classroom activities. The mobile phone application also consists of other operation features that facilitate parents to disburse school field trip, supplies or lunch funds using their handsets. Children then deliver the cheques to the school management.

Competition for innovative prospects

ClassDojo faced opposition from other education technology companies like Kickboard, Remind, Nearpod and FreshGrade among other companies who also desire to keep students’ parents and schools linked. The business stopped working in 2015 to use its investment to grow their team. The company also aimed to outline the type of features and content valuable to the parents who make use of the application at home and during school days.
The design is to help parents conduct exchanges at home to enhance or maintain the development and learning of their children. Recently, educators in many large public, charter and private schools in the United States enthusiastically use Class Dojo.

ClassDojo initiated a subsequent multimillion-business enterprise to finance technology to easily connect educators to students’ parents, and help them constantly correspond on learner activities. General Catalyst leads this second business undertaking and other innovative investors like SignalFire, Reach Capital, and GSV. ClassDojo aims to grow it into a comparable educative messaging and social network platform like Snapchat or Facebook.

Here is why George Soros is investing in the Biotech Industry

George Soros is regarded as the hedge fund management expert of all time and for good reason. George Soros is also the founder of his namesake hedge fund; Soros Fund Management. During his time as the Chief Executive Officer of Quantum Endowment Fund (the primary client of Soros Fund Management), he partnered with a host of other hedge funds to acquire IndyMac Bank at a total cost of $14 billion, gaining control of roughly $160 billion in bank’s investments, loans, and deposits. As a result, the hedge fund generated an excess of 30% annually, crushing the broader financial sectors in the process.

That explains why Soros Fund Management is still in control in the world of finance despite George Soros‘ retirement earlier last year. As such, investors have more than enough reasons to track its quarterly buys and sells.

According to recent 13F filings with the Security Exchange Commission, it was reported that Soros Fund Management had sold its entire shares to Gilead Sciences, iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology Fund, and Novavax in its second quarterly earnings of 2016. Although some of these biotech investments have underperformed due to political impediments related to drug tariffs, it is expected that scenario will change soon once President Hillary Clinton is elected as the U. S. President.

George Soros firmly believes that even if Hillary Clinton wins and tries to fulfill his promise to set up new drug pricing regulations, the pharmaceutical sector’s ginormous petition machine will certainly block any major reforms. As such, the higher drug rates will be there to stay.

Additionally, while Gilead Sciences has fallen after selling its top hepatitis C medication that’s apparently hitting its peak, the biotechnology company still owns plenty of ammo to pursue a handful of smaller deals or a single acquisition to revive its top line and move forward. The company at http://www.cnbc.com/2016/08/30/heres-who-was-in-the-room-when-clinton-met-with-soros-at-state-dept.html is also trading at a ridiculously low price-earnings ratio right now, meaning that the market expects its new medication line to crush completely. However, this is unlikely to happen considering that its new Hepatitis C drug; Epclusa is already showing signs of promise which the biotechnology stock will be damn to ignore.

This is because the investment seems pretty much warranted especially for those patient enough to look for high-growth opportunities in the reinvigorating pharmaceutical industry. Additionally, considering that George Soros has a track record of generating successful investment ideas, it is wise for an investor to stick to a long-term and fundamental-oriented strategy postulated by Soros, rather than emulating the ideas of other unknown analysts.
